So Spurs are about to get Paulo Dybala, show how far we have fallen, when a top level talent rejects manchester united and signs for spurs on lesser money.

common_sense moyes

1.) 08 Aug 2019 09:09:57
It does seem a little surprising. But it makes a little sense from the perspective that living in London is more attractive than Manchester and he'll get champs league footy.

I wonder if to some extent agents think they can get away with murder with us, so throw down massive fees and wages when talking with us and we've just told him to do one, so now that door has closed he's somewhat out of options.

I hope that's the case. I like the idea of agents realigning their expectations of quite how far they can bend us over.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 09:21:05
CSM that is your take on things.

Isn't it public knowledge that we walked away due to his demands?

Dybala may have reduced his demands to get the move away from Juve that Ed said he has wanted since last season, after his demands were rejected by both Juve and United, and potentially PSG who haven't taken him despite his clear intention to move there.


3.) 08 Aug 2019 09:32:22
Wazza public knowledge that mostly came from united's briefing, are you really convinced that spurs are paying any of the fees or wages or other stuff that we balked at?

He isn't going to city or real or barca, he is going to the spurs, who have won nothing under anyone since i can't remember when, he clearly rejected us, which woodward tried to sell as asking too much and fans like you lapped up. And I find it very troubling when top star players start rejecting man utd for spurs.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 10:39:24
I really don't care who spurs do and don't sign as the only people I want playing for our club are those that are 100% committed to it. Dybala could well have been our ozil, talented but going missing on a regular basis, the likes of mata gomes chong and pereira will never give less than 150% and I would rather have them playing than some overpaid superstar who is using us to increase his bank balance!

5.) 08 Aug 2019 10:56:30
He didn't turn us down we pulled the plug on him due to his wage demands and image rights etc. Also if you read about it properly they (Spurs) are still miles apart with Dybala's wage demands and image rights. The only thing that has been agreed is the fee between the two clubs.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 12:11:39
You mean like Gazza did in the nineties?

7.) 08 Aug 2019 12:25:04
Allan and Simonmanc ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

CSM, Dybala to Spurs now off. Your original post is now void which I hope leaves you feeling a little more positive.

There is seem to be a lot of dybala has turned us down posts on both pages, where's this info coming from?

DiMarzio and Agresti both are saying that talks are on ongoing. Sarri's mouthpiece pedulla saying that dybala is expected to sign with utd. Where is this negativity coming from?

He liked a post in social media asking him to stay at Juve, this was also reported in some media like he doesn't want to move. May that is where all these are coming from. Silly I know!

Blocked that moron a long time ago.

10.) 02 Aug 2019 12:16:26
There are a few experts on here that will tell you what players have said what their demands are that they only fit this system or can only play with this player or that player.
The fact is they know nothing they read papers or the net and jump to conclusions. Some just make stuff up.
Im happy to wait and see.
Whatever the squad is on the 8th will be what it is.
We have lots if challenges with or without me players. i'm looking forward to the new season and i'm looking forward to watching the on site experts review their thought process on nearly everything as they flip / flop on practically everything.

11.) 02 Aug 2019 13:19:11
Who's this goldbridge, never heard of him.

12.) 02 Aug 2019 13:35:42
@Leahy: he has a United fan channel on YouTube (The United Stand) with over 500k subscribers. Basically, just an idiot who spends most of his time ranting about baseless rumours and getting pissed off with anyone who makes a snarky comment, whilst pretending to somehow be in the know. He thinks he's the bees knees too. Occasionally his over the top reactions can be funny, like watching a chimp perform something daft at a zoo, but it soon becomes boring.

13.) 02 Aug 2019 13:53:21
Reports going now saying Ronaldo has asked Dybala to join us in whatsapp chat. How their personal whatsapp chat is known to the media is beyond me.

14.) 02 Aug 2019 18:40:23
Cheers llv, just had a look at his channel, turned it off after 20 seconds.

Ed002 are we interested in Thomas partey? Would be a good matic replacement.

common_sense moyes

{Ed002's Note - This was raised a few months ago and it was clear MU had made no approach to AM and in response to an interested club that did approach them it was noted he would not be sold. As far as I recall it was the Ghana coach who raised the MU issue when being interviewed about the cancelled national games in October or November.}

1.) 02 Apr 2019 13:47:32
Thanks ed, who are we targeting as matic replacement?

{Ed002's Note - The club are not looking to replace Matic at this time and have Scott McTominay if required. There are other priorities.}

2.) 02 Apr 2019 15:32:12
Cheers for the Info Ed.

3.) 02 Apr 2019 16:28:40
Thanks ed02, that is really disappointing news.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 22:22:55
Other priorities being that our other first two centre mids are leaving. going to be a long summer for united fans, but stick with ole and the boys.



21 Dec 2018 14:32:40
Ed002 are utd interested in Lucas Hernandez.

common_sense moyes

{Ed002's Note - There was interest in Lucas Hernandez from Mr Mourinho but I would expect interest will have gone with Shaw agreeing a new contract. Atletico will look to hang on to the player and have him sign a new contract but they have been using him as a CB instead of his preferred LB position where Filipe Luis has been playing. Atletico asked too high a price for Filipe in the summer and at his age it killed the chance of a move. With his contract running down he will be allowed to move on and Atletico will attempt to fend off interest from Bayern Munich by adding a CB as soon as they can, possibly January if they can persuade the player they want to make the move and then Hernandez can return to his preferred role.}

1.) 21 Dec 2018 17:09:20
Thanks for the info, we should be trying to sign him, shaw still seems injury prone, not to mention his form he seems to have gone back to being poor since he signed his contract.



12 May 2018 14:35:34
There are rumors that rui faria is leaving, Eds, other posters anyone hear anything about this?

common_sense moyes

1.) 12 May 2018 16:57:47
Posted something similar CSM. Very interesting news and potentially the shake up that Jose's back room staff needs. Apparently its not carrick taking the no. 2 role but that he will just be part of the back room staff. There was murmurs that Faria was linked to the Arsenal job but he does not seem to be on their shortlist. I think Jose needs someone to come in and bring some fresh ideas and a new approach to this team. Quite exciting if this is true.

2.) 12 May 2018 18:20:15
How about klopps number 2 if he is indeed leaving Liverpool.

3.) 12 May 2018 18:24:08
Official on the website (utd website)

{Ed004's Note - Rumours are that the U18 coach McKenna will become assistant manager}

4.) 12 May 2018 18:47:53
Its all official and all seems very amicable- he is ready for a new challenge as his own man somewhere.

I think one of the pundits hit it on the head a few weeks ago, Jose is in a time warp, what worked for him 10 years ago doesn't work now .

SAF always bought in new coaches, kept it fresh, I really hope a new man comes in not just a yes man bit someone with ideas who wants to play attacking, attractive football with wingers, attacking full backs who doesn't think a 1-0 lead at home with 20 mins to go is time to shut up shop.

5.) 12 May 2018 18:57:11
Ed004, I have watched U18 2/ 3 times, they are playing good football. I think he would be good appointment.

{Ed004's Note - That's very good to read. Hopefully that is the case next season. Hoping we push 10 yards further forward and play a more attacking style of football}

6.) 12 May 2018 19:31:18
McKenna would be a very good appointment Ed004, knows the club well, excellent job this season in the u18's, play very good football at times, supposedly did a good job at Spurs aswell. Hopefully we might see Gomes and Chong get some playing time next season (good enough=old enough lol)

{Ed004's Note - Id settle for more attacking football and more entertainment}

7.) 12 May 2018 19:57:18
Lets hope a stronger defence helps us play more attacking next season๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป.

8.) 12 May 2018 22:15:06
McKenna according to rumours with Carrick as number 3.

9.) 12 May 2018 22:51:14
Do you think a different number 2 will have any input into changing Mourinhos style after all this time. Especially someone who he has not known for long, I am not sure i see mourinho taking tactical input from anyone let alone someone who relatively barely knows.

10.) 13 May 2018 08:42:11
Anyone know who's going to be number 4?

11.) 13 May 2018 11:11:40
MancMan. I heard Fellaini.

12.) 14 May 2018 10:12:44
"Speaking after the win over Watford, Mourinho said he would not have an assistant next season as "nobody in the world of football is ready".

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges, " he said. "When he has his pro licence, when he makes the bridge from player to assistant.

"I got to Michael in the last part of his career and it was enough to fall in love with the player and person. ""

Hope this isn't true, a Mourinho dictatorship is the last thing we need.

13.) 15 May 2018 03:20:01
I for 1 am hopeful that Carrick grows into this job. By all accounts the players look up to him, respect him as a leader (as they should) . He understands this team, understands the players, understands and loves United. He has a lot of potential. We just need to see if he has the appetite and aptitude now. I really hope so.

Var is bull, how is the Sheffield goal ruled offside on basis of guesswork based on millimeters, while every game we have refs getting benefit of doubt on clear as daylight calls.

common_sense moyes

1.) 09 Nov 2019 19:30:23
VAR could work if we didn't try to change the rules along the way. We used to give the benefit of any doubt to the attacker. Now we have some muppet with geometric lines guessing on a frozen frame whether a toe is 3 mm further forward than a should 60 yards away. Total rubbish.

Should just have a wider margin of error with any doubt staying with on field decision. This is similar to cricket lbw and works well.



03 Oct 2019 19:57:55
Can't wait for the ole cultists to tell us that we are glory hunters and pampered fans for expecting man utd to register atleast a single shot on target against mighty giants like AZ Alkmaar.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 22:55:41
If we had a creative midfielder who passed forward quickly it would keep opponents honest and actually give our forwards something to feed off. I guarantee that if you put Rashford or Martial or Greenwood in City's team they would score loads.

4.) 04 Oct 2019 16:00:31
Pogba is awesome creative player if manager can make him play right.



06 Jun 2019 15:14:33
So Hazard gone, Chelsea have a transfer ban. Arsenal are being usual cheapskates, Tottenham will most likely lose eriksen. If we can't strengthen and finish top 4 next season there is no hope for this club.

common_sense moyes

1.) 06 Jun 2019 15:31:40
I think this is a great thing for Chelsea (both the ban and losing Hazard) .

Short term they will suffer and we have to capitalise on that, but they will be much stronger for it in two years time as they give game time to a number of promising youngsters.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 15:56:10
88 million in todays market is a bargain.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 17:34:15
Bargain? Not sure about that. 28 years old and only has a year left on his contact.

Great player, but has been know to go missing in big games. Will be interesting to see how he does at Real Madrid.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 19:47:33
Hazard is an amazing player and he doesn't go missing in big games it is just that he had 2 or 3 players amrking him in big games because there is only one superstar in that chelsea team.

In Madrid there will be a few players on his level sooner or later and he would have a lot more space to create damage.

I am glad he got his move as he should be playing in a team challenging on all fronts.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 22:25:57
Singh, Messi has 2 or 3 marking him every game. As does Ronaldo. Just as Zidane, Figo, Del Peiro, Totti etc etc.

The great players always get doubled up on, the best players over come that and have great performances anyway.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 08:35:17
And Eden has some exactly that, Shappy. He's a true world class player and has carried us for years. Was easily the best player in the PL the last couple of years in my opinion.

Easier to get goals and assists when you're playing with the likes of Aguero, Kane, Sane, Sterling etc. than with an aging Pedro, average Willian and misfiring strikers (and we do seem to attract those lol) .

I'm happy for him that he can live his dream though. And that 88m will probably rise to somewhere around 120 to 130 million so that's an excellent deal for a player with only 1 year on his contract and just the single club he wanted to join. There was no hope of a bidding war of any sort here, as it was either Chelsea or Madrid for him.

We may not be the biggest spenders anymore, but I have to say that Marina is excellent at getting value for her players when selling.

Road to top 4 is open for you guys now. You've got the quality so no doubt you'll get there.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 09:00:31
They also play in a much better tean then Chelsea.

First signing of summer is in, Daniel James all but done!

common_sense moyes

1.) 06 Jun 2019 11:05:50
Happy with that. Not proven in the prem but looks like tidy bit of business. Lots of players who come from the lower leagues do well in the premier league if used right.

Ryan Fraser, Jamie Vardy, Zaha, Callum Wilson, Maddison, Maguire, Robertson, Dele Alli and many more.

Lets hope James can follow and be a regular for us in the future.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 11:12:47
I think he will fight with Martial for the Left wing role.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 11:51:03
Why canโ€™t he just be friends with Martial?

No fighting, or Ole will turn the car around, and heโ€™ll stay in Swansea for the summer smelling nothing but fish.

With all the discussion about how Utd out ran cardiff and the accusations that Utd players downed the tools and were not putting in the effort.

A bit of googling tells me after about 33 games last season we were 20th in the league in distance traveled with 3672 kms covered. Unless.

common_sense moyes

1.) 23 Dec 2018 13:20:33
Pressed the send button a bit too quickly. So folks unless people think players downed the tools last season as well, this whole players downed the tools and did not work hard enough narrative needs to stop.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 15:40:07
I don't think players downed tools. I think they didn't believe or trust in the style of play that was being asked of them. It's hard. bordering on impossible to be 100% committed to anything you don't 100% believe in. That's not the same as saying I won't play for a manager, just that you don't trust in his way of playing.

Plus a counter attacking team, that sits deep, plays a low block and only plays passes into feet is never going to cover a huge amount of distance. That coupled with the prevailing style last season seemed to be to play a high press with balls being played into space not feet then the average distance covered would probably be higher than usual. Which would make our lower figures look worse than they were. Remember last season we finished 2nd with a very low distance covered statistic, which highlights the many different ways to skin a cat.

For me though that style that Jose wanted us to play just doesn't fit the DNA of our club. So was never going to be a long lasting style.

But that's down to the taxes AJH, he is at a club which is a UCL favorite especially given the fact that city or liverpool haven't strengthened that much and will win serie A without breaking sweat, why would any worldclass player take a step down to a mid table club without a payraise, we have been outside top 4 more often than in it, winning a trophy next season would be an achievement, people really need to start accepting the fact that outside of us getting a worldclass big name manager only way we can attract worldclass players is if we pay over the odds. Be it in transfer fees or wages.

Dodgy, I know people here don't like pogba much for various reasons but periera adds little to the team outside workrate, he has the same problem as rashford as the minute there is even the slightest hint of open space he wants to have a shot, it's worse than rashford as atleast rashford has the excuse of being a forward.

Pogba whether you like him or not is a great player and has actual passing ability that none of our no 10's currently possess.

Rashford missing the sitters is a common enough occurrence these days, he'll never be a striker because of it but shouldn't hinder him too much.

It's his tunnel vision that's the problem, martial today was time and again unselfish choosing to make the smart pass instead of having a shot which led to 2 of the goals and atleast 1 other chance. Rashford had multiple opportunities to return favor and play lingard and james in yet chose to have shots from angles he is not scoring from. The kid really needs to be told to be less greedy.

Can't wait for pogba to replace pereira, the front 4 would be good to watch.

What crazy law allows people to throw rocks at car?

Tackling in football is legal unlike throwing rocks at car which isn't ( i hope), just because an injury resulted from it doesn't make it an illegal tackle. Son's tackle was not reckless enough to be viewed as one meant to deliberately cause injury so not a red card whatever the end result of the tackle.

Shan mctominay was the worst player yesterday consistently failing to complete 5 yard passes.

Martial and Rashford had quiet games yesterday, martial's hold up was poor but there wasn't much wrong in what rashford did.

Mctominay and periera were basically playing for Bournemoth. Both failing to find either martial or rashford when they made the runs. The early chance that Pereira fecked up came from martial's pass.

May be if scott Mct could pass better we might have seen a different scoreline.
