Rumours that verbal agreement reached with Timber. Fee negotiation with Ajax within the region of £30m.

PSG has decided De Jong is worth a look and they're having a sniff around - speaking to Barcelona.

Though we've contacted both the player and club - UCL is a priority for De Jong while Barcelona (Xavi) see him as important though a sumptuous offer could whet their appetite.

Oh, City and Bayern giving him approving glances.


1.) 23 May 2022 19:37:00
Can't understand the obsession with the UCL, Europa is where all the coolest clubs hang out, plus the final is in Budapest this year which is like the best party town ever.


2.) 23 May 2022 23:44:53
Can't understand the obsession with De Jong I don't think he is that good.

I think he is a product of the Ajax system and is suited to that system in a team full of players versed in that system.


3.) 24 May 2022 00:16:07
Is there any substance in these Timber rumors? I don’t think Ed has even mentioned us honestly and I haven’t seen a single report in England of substance.


4.) 24 May 2022 08:52:08
@Oakbark its almost like we have signed the Ajax Manager and are trying to buy players to recreate the successful ajax system at our failing club. go figure.


5.) 24 May 2022 10:19:39
Timber is very close to signing for around £35m.


6.) 24 May 2022 13:36:09
Says who? Where’s the reports on timber being close? Ed have United made an approach to Ajax?

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

Varane out for a month and possibly more.

He was rushed back.

Fortunately we have international break to soak up some of that time.


1.) 04 Nov 2021 07:15:16
Still City, Chelsea, Villareal, Arsenal, Watford and Palace possibly before he is back. Should be interesting with the comedic defence we have had at times this year.

Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted the Italian champions have had no contact with Manchester United over midfielder Paul Pogba.

On Friday, Marotta poured further cold water on the speculation in an appearance on Italian television, simply telling
Sportitalia that there has been "no contact" with other clubs.


1.) 16 Jul 2016 06:37:13
The old adage applies. Never believe anything until it is officially d
denied!
I am hopeful.


2.) 16 Jul 2016 08:38:06
Dortmund did the same with Mkhitaryan.


3.) 16 Jul 2016 09:22:45
Have we put a bid in to the player's club? The more credible sources (relatively speaking) seem to suggest we haven't as yet; more that we've only held talks with his agent around terms for the player. And if we haven't put in a bid, and he's supposedly our top target, then why not?!


4.) 16 Jul 2016 12:51:19
Juve are negotiating other deals for incoming players. Why would they confirm that they could be getting £100m+. Only increases asking price for players they're interested in. Reality is the market knows. But no pointing making it easier.


 

 

17 Jun 2016 10:44:11
Well Mino Raiola has popped up again saying they are working hard to convince Dortmund to let Mikhitarian leave for United.
I like the guy (Mikhitarian of course! ), but Dortmund are downright SOBs when it comes to transfers and usually end up getting their way - just like Tottenham.

Eds "do you think we can pull this off? "

{Ed004's Note - I would like to think so. This seems to be a case of Dortmund trying to save face. They'll want their fans to think they tried very hard to keep the player and that (if he moves) the offer they received was too much to turn down for a player who wants to leave.}


1.) 17 Jun 2016 11:14:42
Thanks Ed. I do think Mikhitarian will be a good acquisition but my Chelsea-supporting cousin thinks I'm under rating the player. He's hoping the deal doesn't materialise, how do you rate the player?

{Ed004's Note - Haven't really seen enough of him but his stats where extremely impressive from last season}


2.) 17 Jun 2016 11:18:36
Thanks Ed004👍.


3.) 17 Jun 2016 11:26:03
Is t Mkhitaryan in his final year of contract there is no way they will let's other player leave on a free transfer next season I think they will sell him.


4.) 17 Jun 2016 11:52:54
Keyser
They did that with Lewandowski.


5.) 17 Jun 2016 15:08:46
I hope we get Mkhitaryan. Right footed option from the right but very good at it - a rare breed. He scores and lays on so many chances which Zlatan et al should make the most of.


6.) 17 Jun 2016 18:45:53
Mkhitaryan was obviously the best player this season in the bundesliga. He is pure class and will even get better.
Just to inform you.


7.) 17 Jun 2016 19:05:04
One word, Kagawa.


8.) 17 Jun 2016 20:51:33
Different type of player.


9.) 17 Jun 2016 17:18:18
just a weird club who keep losing players on a free or it always seems like no one wants to stay or extend. No other club is ever in the news as much as they are with key players not wanting to say, extend etc.


10.) 17 Jun 2016 22:02:05
But that's probably more to do with Bayern winning every year X, and they know any top players they get once they start performing eventually they're going to go and bayern take all their very best.

Must make it hard to stay motivated knowing that's going to happen especially if you feel you have the talent to be winning things and clubs that are going to be challenging for titles come in and offer you more money.


11.) 18 Jun 2016 08:05:58
Jamal

To a degree yes, but if they had retained what they had, they can give Bayern a run for their money. supposedly great stadium and 80k fans every game, A lot of teams in many other leagues who don't win the league but are competitive seem to have more loyalty from their players. Something strange at Dortmund.


12.) 18 Jun 2016 13:41:08
Was thinking this the other day gcu it seems they never have renewal.

And Rooney has selected four players who any new manager can build around next season, he told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football: “I think [Jadon] Sancho will be better next year, Marcus [Rashford] will be better next year.

“They’ve got good young players. I think Jesse Lingard should be playing for them because he brings energy, brings quality. Scott McTominay’s done well"

“I like Harry, ” Rooney said. “He hasn’t been on his best form like a lot of players but for England he looks like a world-class centre-back. If he can get his confidence back he can be a big part of [the rebuild]. ”


Wayne "I prefer Poch" Rooney
?.


1.) 06 Apr 2022 10:41:42
Another deluded ex player.


2.) 06 Apr 2022 10:59:56
I think Rooney is entitled to his opinions, he's a former player, a former Manchester United player, and is currently doing very well as a football manager under very difficult circumstances.

As such he will almost certainly have insights to the game, to our club and to the current situation our club finds itself in.

But like all opinions you don't have to agree with them.

Ultimately we all base our opinions off of the knowledge we have. Maybe Wayne has seen these players close up, played with or against them, seen them train and thinks there is something about them that could see them play well in the right set up.

Maybe he has seen or heard things about Pochettino that make him feel he would be a good manager.

That doesn't mean EtH wouldn't be a good manager, just that Rooney probably doesn't know enough about the guy to give as strong a verdict as he might with Pochettino.


3.) 06 Apr 2022 11:20:53
There is an argument to say that under the right type of management those players would be okay, whether that is a Pochetino type I am not sure. For example Maguire plays his best in a back 3 so potentially would have been good under a Conte who likes that format.
Everyone has there opinions on players and management and it does not surprise me that players used to the Premiership would rate Pochetino's style and experience of the League and have weight to the experience.
However, it should not be lost that the most recent successful managers did not have that premiership experience (although successful in other leagues) . EtH comes with a very different philosophy than most are used to and one that needs a culture change which in reality is exactly what the club needs.


4.) 06 Apr 2022 11:58:36
Lots of maybes in there Shappy.

Of course everyone is entitled to his opinion but opinions aren't facts.

I used to be a staunch supporter of Pogba and felt Martial and Shaw not only had the talents but will come up with the goods.

At this moment, the first player I'd kick out is Pogba while Martial will be next.

Regardless of how we try, we'll always have our thoughts or actions influenced by our sentiments or prejudices.

Tinted glasses and all that.


5.) 06 Apr 2022 12:44:37
I don’t think it’s his opinions - it’s the idea that a 29 year old is a ‘young player’. McTominay at 25 is hardly a young player, Jesse at 29 is closer to retirement than he is to being a young player.


6.) 06 Apr 2022 13:47:27
Also that Lingard is not very good, nor is Mctominay, or Maguire or Rashford anymore, plus Sancho is hardly ripping up trees.

So Rooney's professional opinion is that a central part of Utd's best bet for a rebuild is four proven to be crap or average at best players and one who might be good but we don't know yet.

What a muppet.


7.) 06 Apr 2022 13:58:43
Some of the deluded posters on here should throw there hat in the ring for the United job as they seem to know more about being a football manager then any of the ex players / managers.


8.) 06 Apr 2022 15:02:12
Sim it's pathetic reading folk who have never played the game at a decent level who have never coached never done their badges never educated themselves. Never dealt with pro athletes never achieved anything in the game speaking from a position of complete ignorance but they know more than anybody.
Opinions are fine we all have them. But I've read people calling pep a bottler poch useless eth as the second coming of Christmas the board incompetent and go on and on and on and on and on and on about stuff they know nothing about. A bunch of empty vessels just making noise.


9.) 06 Apr 2022 15:12:31
Spot on Ken.


10.) 06 Apr 2022 16:29:26
Everyone is different Sim.
I don't like or enjoy all the silly hypothesis it's just not for me.
I enjoy reading lots of posts on here and getting a feeling for how others view things but I don't get all the faux expertise. Too much talking about stuff they know nothing about and with no context or knowledge or experience.
I'm really looking forward to seeing who we appoint as manager and I look forward to seeing how the new man goes about his business and how he works with the team and 'suits' above him.
It's a great opportunity for any new manager. I don't get all the doom and gloom and it will take years.
I'm of the opinion that the right guy can have us 10 or 15 points better off next season and competing to win it the following season.
That imo is entirely possible.
But we just have to wait and see.
Momentum key to everything.
I have a slight preference for poch over ETH but I don't count out others. Poch is my preference because he has done a good job in the epl before he put together a very good spurs team and did well at Southampton before that. His epl teams played a style that was in keeping with what supporters of united expect. He is ready for a top job in the epl and he will do well at united imo.
Eth I don't know a great deal about other than watching his ajax team for last few years.
They play again a nice style.
His superstar 3some vdb de ligt and de Jong have not done that well since they left ajax. Nor ziech at Chelsea. The Dutch league is weak. But he has built another good team with all the ahax resources and got a tune out of the likes of tadic but a move from Southampton to ajax is a step down in terms of standard and competition weekly. I think he would be a higher risk option but he will also do well if given the time and structure he needs to do well. Much higher risk as there would need to be a lot more changes and moving parts than I anticipate happening.
I just look forest's to a decision being made then we can begin a new journey as fans.
Wait and see what the club do and let's not pick the manager and his squad and his team and his backroom staff. Let those in charge do that and only then can we have informed conversation on how good or bad things are going.


11.) 06 Apr 2022 19:04:00
Nice post Ken. No-one 'knows' anything or is right or wrong. Some are a lot more informed than others but again no more entitled to share those views. Whilst the leagues of all managers involved in these rumours are still ongoing I can't see anything being announced officially any time soon so we've got a good further month of fun and games in here yet.


12.) 06 Apr 2022 19:17:36
Well don't I look like a prat. Supposedly confirmed about 30 seconds after I wrote my previous post.


13.) 06 Apr 2022 19:37:30
Spenno everybody here looks a prat from time to time.


14.) 07 Apr 2022 07:46:49
Funny thing is how people come on here to give their opinions (sorry, facts) but when someone gives a different one s/ he is called out (covertly or overtly) for not knowing a thing about football or not knowing as much as ex players or coaches because s/ he hasn't gotten his coaching badges yada yada.

Based on that premise, you should also not criticize, complain or fault any player, ex player or manager because the said person has had relevant professional training you lack - looking at you Ken.


You've criticized or complained about transfers, player-selection, tactics, in-game management of almost every manger whether of Manchester United or other teams including Sir Alex Ferguson, Moyes, LVG, Mourinho, Carrick, Ole and Rangnick.

It's very rich from you to come here and tell me I can't have dissenting views to Rooney's because you feel I'm "uneducated" in football or just assume I know nothing about football.

I may have not progressed but I'm happy to have played at amateur level in two different continents and I've seen "armchair critics" rightly call out proven managers.

You staying behind your keyboard and rightly assuming I have no history in football is outrageously cocky to say the least.


And Sim saying it's "delusional" is nothing but funny.


The only people I see you guys lunge at for not knowing what they're doing are those who prefer ETH to MP.


On a final note, if i am to take up your words as gospel, then you shouldn't complain (which you always do) about any player or manager for what they say or do because you "have never played the game at a decent level, have never coached never done your badges never educated yourself. Never dealt with pro athletes never achieved anything in the game and you are speaking from a position of complete ignorance but think you know more than anybody else with your faux expertise. Too much talking about stuff you know nothing about and with no context or knowledge or experience" relative to the said manager or player you disagree or complain about. I'm just throwing your words back at you, LMAO!


That's why I have never called you or anyone else who has a differing opinion on football to mine or prefer other managers like Poch or even Simeone as "ignorant", "deluded" "pathetic", "empty vessels" etc because I believe that opinions, understanding, views will differ and I can argue with you respectfully but throwing such words because you're seemingly not getting the manager you want is not only funny but childish.

?.


15.) 07 Apr 2022 16:28:07
Is that directed at me you twit?

{Ed014's Note - I think the second paragraph, last sentence was the giveaway mate! ??


 

 

03 Apr 2022 06:25:44
Yesterday, I watched my third consecutive Ajax match and later today, I'll watch my third consecutive PSG match.

Don't get me wrong, I've watched both teams many times before but not with such vested interest and scrutiny as I do now; studying tactics, formation, play patterns, defense, attack and transitioning etc.

I have to admit Poch is not bad (which I already knew since his time at Tottenham or even Southampton) BUT if ETH can get a Manchester United team to play the way his team does, I'd rather ETH than Poch.

Just like the previous game week, Ajax found themselves behind but the way the team played was on the front foot and in control (except about 20+ odd minutes after second half by which they were leading 2 - 1 but nerves settled after the beautiful 3rd goal) .

Keep in mind that ETH has had his team lose its best players each of the last 3 transfer windows and has had to replace those players with either players from the youth team or buy scouted talent and they not only fit the system but also do so well.

Forgot to add that PSV drew so wasn't a bad matchday for Ajax.


1.) 03 Apr 2022 10:03:42
It might be a bit worrying that his team falls behind in such a weak league with an Ajax team which has a much bigger budget than most Dutch teams. Fall behind in the Premier league and it's a lot harder to come back and win. The success of any Premier league winning team is built on a sound miserly defence.


2.) 03 Apr 2022 11:45:01
Does the criticism of ten haag that he's rebuilt this team with some players who couldn't cut it in the premier league?

Haller, Blind, Tadic spring to mind or is that too simplistic a view?

Not my opinion but it does show the weakness of the Eridivisie that those players are considered big players or stars.


3.) 03 Apr 2022 11:58:09
Darmian, Ashley Young, Sanchez, Lukaku left United and won the title at Inter Milan.
Good managers can bring the best out of players.
We can look at both ways though.


4.) 03 Apr 2022 12:35:52
Salford, falling behind has been a few times (3 or 4 in 28 games) with a +69 good (almost twice the team in second place) .

I see it as a strength rather than weakness. All these "weak league" rhetoric bandied about is amusing seeing as English teams on the average get whooped by these so called "weaker league teams" in Europe and not only by the big ones but also smaller ones.

They tend to play better, have more possession and also more pleasing than our "mighty" premier league teams.


5.) 03 Apr 2022 12:46:35
? DSG whose opinion then is it if it isn't yours? because it isn't mine.

TRD just explained it.

People may chose to see football as it is or as they wish.

Klopp came from a weaker League and so did many managers who have found considerable success.

Well, people will always have an opinion be it right or wrong. I remember people backing Ole even on the day before he was sacked.

I remember being vilified for strongly opposing his employment as a caretaker manager.


6.) 03 Apr 2022 13:30:04
And lukaku/ ashley young came back to the prem and look as bad as they did when they were with us lol.

Clearly the premier league is a different level to all other leagues maybe apart from La Liga.

Pochs prior experience in the prem puts him slightly above Ten Haag for me.


7.) 03 Apr 2022 19:10:40
Having PL experience doesn't mean Poch will do any better as well. If anything it places more pressure on him to deliver success having first hand knowledge of the league. Where as Ten hag would be given more time to acclimatise in my opinion to go about implementing his ideas due to being a novice.


8.) 03 Apr 2022 19:12:20
Salford, even the best teams fall behind in matches. Brentford beat Chelsea 4-1 yesterday, does that make Tuchel a bad manager? Just because Ajax have fallen behind, it doesn't make Ten Hag a bad manager. It's how the team perform and come back that is important.
He's going to win the Dutch league 3 times in his 4 seasons. They've performed incredibly well in Europe on a shoestring budget. And I can fully see him managing City one day if we don't sign him.


 

 

03 Feb 2022 16:51:13
Guys, honestly, I don't want to start an argument but as days keep going by and as Pochettino's PSG hasn't set the world alight, my doubts keep increasing.

Ed001 and Ed002, you guys are more knowledgeable and objective than me. Do you think he'd be a good manager for us looking at the circumstances or would you rather another manager.

Cos I believe structurally and systematically PSG is light years ahead of Manchester United.

If he's floundering at PSG, what would he do over here when our first team is nowhere close to theirs or our footballing structure is in shambles?

Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - no, I don't think he is anywhere near good enough.}


1.) 03 Feb 2022 17:38:14
Rangnick or ten haag for me poch is a manager on a downward trajectory his time at spurs ended with no breakthrough and pretty much in the squad declining massivley.

Hes then moved to psg and whilst not the best set up for him he should still have to ability to get that squad moving forward from tuchel but it really hasn't happened.

If we get top 4 we may get ten haag if we don't i think rangnick should stay. ed002 has suggested other managers who are on a positive path the sporting manager i believe being the main one this is the type of manager i would look to someone currently excelling in the role and playing the style we want and for me poch doesn't currently fit that.


2.) 03 Feb 2022 17:54:28
I
Thanks Ed001, who do you think is best suited to the job please? Thanks for your time.

{Ed001's Note - Potter I think would be the best man for the job.}


3.) 03 Feb 2022 18:58:57
Graham Potters XG stats combined with Ronaldos finishing ability.

Were going to win the treble in his first season.


4.) 03 Feb 2022 19:12:39
Yaz, if we appoint Poch, it will be another major mistake. Ten Hag is an excellent manager who will be tge complete fit for us. He plays a high press game and has kept Ajax competitive for years on a very limited budget. More importantly, Ajax have been competitive I'm Europe. He has a very strict philosophy and he's exactly what this shambolic club needs.


5.) 03 Feb 2022 19:15:03
Lol. Potter.


6.) 03 Feb 2022 19:17:11
Poch is a nice guy. We just had one of those. I really can't think of any reason to be excited about the prospect of him as manager other than that.


7.) 03 Feb 2022 19:19:50
DBrooks, I don't think a manager should make a decision to sign based on whether we get top 4 or not. Surely if we don't make top 4, then tge next manager should come in to get us back into top4 and eventually challenge for the league.
Agree with your comments re Poch. I don't think he handles big players very well, he's also defensively poor.


8.) 03 Feb 2022 19:23:19
I'm not saying Poch is the answer, but who has done well at PSG? It's a circus there.


9.) 03 Feb 2022 20:33:04
I’d much prefer Ten Haag but I think Pochettino accepted the job two months ago and is already in full planning mode.


10.) 03 Feb 2022 20:34:40
Signing Messi and keeping Mbappe hostage and people think Poch is the problem. Ridiculous. By the way what other teams are there in Netherlands? isn't it more or less a one/ two team league there? People saying Ajax is competitive in CL, didn't Poch take Spurs to the CL final only to lose it via a dodgy penalty?


11.) 03 Feb 2022 20:41:38
Potter would be a massive mistake as well. Been there with Moyes, steady track record but when it comes to the big appointment he could be massively out of his depth. Given the unlikely scenario that Pogba stays and Ronny stays put……I’m struggling to see how GP manages those who’s. Plus, he’s not the greatest pull for any would be world class signings. Ten Haag for me, and hope he brings the whole of Ajax’s non playing staff with him. Wishful thinking I know…….

{Ed001's Note - he is nothing like Moyes and to even compare the two shows how little you know of Potter.}


12.) 03 Feb 2022 21:05:12
Herein lies the problem, as a fan base we are divided. No manager will have even close to 60% of fans backing him when he takes over. Those who wanted someone else will be waiting to stick the knives in and proclaim themselves right after ever set back, loss or even a draw.

It means whoever comes will need pretty much immediate success or the fans will start to turn and force out another manager.


13.) 03 Feb 2022 22:26:58
Ed001, I'm a big, big fan of Potter. I do have doubts about whether he's a big enough name to attract top players while we're still playing catch-up, though. That's not a deal-breaker for me though, because hopefully we're actually going to implement a style of play whereby players are brought in to fit the system, and learn from a very good coach, rather than just on reputation. Do you think he could handle it here? I know you can't give a definitive answer, just your opinion.

{Ed001's Note - yes, I have no worries about his ability to step up.}


14.) 03 Feb 2022 22:38:09
I'm with Ed I think Potter would be the best fit. He has Brighton playing some decent football.


15.) 03 Feb 2022 23:18:58
Like Ole Shappy. And the cycle continues.


16.) 03 Feb 2022 23:59:56
We all know it’s going to be Poch….


17.) 04 Feb 2022 00:01:32
Potter has always been my choice too but Ed002 has told us it’s not going to happen.


18.) 04 Feb 2022 01:21:14
I always vote for Potter. He is a fantastic coach.


19.) 04 Feb 2022 08:43:31
Ideally i would give Ralf another season and bring Potter in. Potter seems more like a Man Utd Manager than Poch. he done a brilliant job at Brighton and gone about it the right way. The players have improved technically and as an overall team. He handles media well too and has little ego about him. can't believe there isn't much more hype about him considering he is doing a better job than Rodgers did at Swansea or Poch at S'mpton. can't believe Everton did not move heaven and earth to get him and got Lampard instead!

The real question is if United can sort out the structure and management responsibilities ahead of appointing a good manager and killing him with a poor setup.


20.) 04 Feb 2022 09:56:54
Potter is a very good manager. And Brighton are neat and very well run club from top to bottom. There is an excellent coaching/ management team all working together to make Brighton the team they are.
Dan Ashcroft, David Weir, Billy Reid, Born Hamberg, all doing great work there. If they had a striker who could bag 20 goals a season, they'd be a lot higher up.
Guess my point is, it's a team effort both on and off the pitch, United are struggling in both departments at the moment and it needs to be addressed. Rangnick is an interesting appointment, which could lead to some astute recruitment, both on and off the pitch. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.


21.) 04 Feb 2022 15:41:12
Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome Yaz.}

According to Fabrizio, Manchester United and Bordeaux reached a loan agreement for Phil Jones only for the player to turn down the opportunity.

Deal is off ???.


1.) 31 Jan 2022 00:22:00
Why are you angry about this? He's an English man, living in England and still under contract. He doesn't have to move to France if he doesn't want to. Get a grip.


2.) 31 Jan 2022 05:36:15
Isn't the worst outcome for us. We've let a few players go on loan and given how fragile some of our defenders I'm sure he will play 2-3 crucial games before the end of season.


3.) 31 Jan 2022 07:59:56
reading that he wasnt guaranteed playing time, bought more as cover . well he can be that at UTD I guess was his thinking.

Let's be honest here can anyone name a better 90 minute performance from any of our CB's this season than Jones's 90 minutes against Wolves?

Varane has done well enough, but has made a couple of mistakes.

Lindelof and Bailly have continued to be good at some things but have their weaknesses exploited almost at will by the opposition.

Tuanzebe has been shipped out on loan twice. He couldn't break into the side at Villa, while he's started once for Napoli this season where they lost 5-2 against Fiorentina in the cup.

While the less said about Maguire's season the better.

Fully fit Varane and Jones are probably our best CB pairing.

If he wants to stay I don't see a real problem with it.

Yesssssss

Southgate extends to 2024!

That's one I don't want down the drain.

Thank God.
No Zidane, no Rogers
Just go and offer Ten Hag and his coaches the job.
Ajax playing against Borrusia Dortmund, sporting Lisbon and Besiktas have a maximum 12 points with a goal difference of 12. They play very entertaining and effective football. So, why haven't the club contacted him and we already have someone who knows the club in VDS.
Get your fingers out and get him in.

Completely agree AAA, let’s bring their ethos too.


3.) 22 Nov 2021 13:22:04
Ten Hag is ‘exactly what we need’ like any player we are ever linked with. I’d be interested how many Ajax games people have watched to suddenly think he’s definitely the man. I’m not saying I’m against him but I can see why the club might want to go with someone a little less of a gamble. Pochettino seems to want the job, I’d take him immediately.


4.) 22 Nov 2021 13:37:16
Agree to both of you but I fear it'd be Pochetino.

On the comedy side of things, Carrick wants to have Maguire by his side for UCL presser.

People forget that Carrick and Co continuing where they stopped after the last game.

I watch a fair amount of Dutch league games on TV over here in portugal. All transmitted live. Also, Ajax have been very impressive in Europe.
Ten Hag comes across as a bit arrogant, but he's tough and very focused on the way his teams play.


6.) 22 Nov 2021 15:15:51
ten hag would fail under the structure of the club.

LVG tried changing the way the youth set up and reserves were set up and he failed.

he has the perfect set up at ajax, from 1st team down.


7.) 22 Nov 2021 15:57:06
Wasn’t a dig at you AAA at all, your reasons seem legit, I’m seeing a lot of people saying Ten Haag is their preferred choice, they don’t even know his name but know he’s good enough for united.


8.) 22 Nov 2021 16:10:04
I agree bolger. Unless we make a radical Sturry structural change ten hag will not excel imo.
Gds2 has this spot on imo.
Ajax are not winning the league they ran away with last year. I think he is very good but may not be set up for success in the same way at united.
If we are not going to a new structure poch or Rodgers would be better suited imo.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day Ken ?.


10.) 22 Nov 2021 17:52:20
I did think that gds2 ?.

Careful lads, Christmas round the corner, you'll be buying each other cards ?.


12.) 22 Nov 2021 22:25:38
Let’s hope so, no bad blood from my side.

I'll be highly disappointed if we went down that route Ed.


I hope it's just rumours and tabloid tales.

Great! Now it's left for the board (or whoever the amateurs are) to finally do the right thing and let the manager decide who fits and who doesn't.

If be elated when this is confirmed and it doesn't end up to be Poch.

Don't know how true but:

Reports that Manchester United and ETH at a standoff due to ETH requesting participation and significant say on transfers (incomings and outgoings) including types of players and how they'd fit into his system which the club is yet to assent to.

The fact that this is even an issue shows how amateurish and useless our club is run.

Also, reports that RBL have given a better offer than ours (with total control on transfers) to ETH but there's no denying which is a more attractive option.
