Rumours kicking about fee agreed with Ajax for Del Ligt and personnel terms close. Picking up a lot of traction on social media.


1.) 24 May 2019 21:39:44
Why do I get the feeling that this could be snieder all over again?

2.) 24 May 2019 22:27:39
We're signing Sneijder after the bank holiday. Gaitan too if his agent picks up the phone. Strootmans due the following week. Then Woodward turned off Football Manager 2014.

3.) 24 May 2019 23:02:01
If true, and a massive IF, would be a sensational purchase.

4.) 24 May 2019 23:59:23
Yeah there's a lot flying around on Twitter about. Some claiming it's done and it will all be confirmed in the next few days but I never believe anythings complete until I see the player holding the shirt at Old Trafford. Would be hell of a signing though if we could get it over the line.

5.) 25 May 2019 05:52:21
Would be a sensational signing.
A natural leader and would serve for 10 to 15 years.

6.) 25 May 2019 10:45:58
He's going to Barcelona read eds previous posts.

7.) 25 May 2019 11:37:23
Ed has said there is an issue to be relived first before Barcelona sign him. that issue could be anything. Money, personal reasons, agents, playing time guarantees etc.

8.) 25 May 2019 11:46:17
While I can't help getting excited about the prospect of De Ligt stabilising our defence, we need to remember players have used us in the past to boost their own negotiating power when getting a new contract or putting pressure on a buying club to meet their demands.

I think this is what we are seeing and he will end up at Barca, i judt hope we put a cut off point on it instead of wasting the entire transfer window chasing a player who may have no interest in playing for us.

9.) 25 May 2019 13:57:37
Even if he doesn't move to barcelona there are probably about 4-5 other clubs that he could go to that would be a better move than us at the moment.

PSG, Juve, Bayern, City etc.

10.) 25 May 2019 14:10:05
No chance, wages will be insane plus fees etc. Why give a young lad high wages then what does he have to get up for? that's been our main issue lately, signing this lad will carry on the problems.

11.) 25 May 2019 17:54:34
If we sign De Ligt we need 3-4 other leaders to come in and rip out the bad apples. Otherwise he will be another Daley Blind, no authority so his leadership counts for zero if he is an alien walking into the corrupt nature of our dressing room.

With a few other newcomers he would be immense. Otherwise like Lindelof/ Herrera/ Mata - having the right attitude will count for nothing.

12.) 25 May 2019 20:26:34
Ed002 put us out of our misery please 😂😂.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any "done deal".}

13.) 26 May 2019 00:20:43
But are all those other teams looking a centre half, DSG?

14.) 26 May 2019 06:34:18
City - otamendi and kompany are leaving and need to be replaced.

Juve - barzaghli retiring, bonucci and chiellini getting on a bit

Bayern - probably not as much but they are still rebuilding and de ligt is the perfect age for that rebuild.

15.) 26 May 2019 02:42:08
It's a fantastic website in Ireland ed002. You can pick up some great bargains!



02 Jun 2018 14:44:14
Di Marzio tweeting Fred deal done, if he says it it's good enough for me. Griezmann to decide where he is going befor WC too.


1.) 02 Jun 2018 16:48:49
deal was pretty much done some time ago just not formally announced to the public.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 17:41:09
Pretty sure Barcelona are still favourites for Griezzman last time I checked.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 18:05:13
Genuinely no idea how good Fred is and what type of midfielder he is?

4.) 02 Jun 2018 19:16:15
From what I have seen I think he will sit more comfortably with Matic allowing Pogba to push forward with more free roll. If that's the case our dynamic will change for the better.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 21:08:52
Barcelona are not favourites in the exchange. To stay put is a certain according to the odds.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 23:11:15
Think the Griezmann one has more chance of happening than Ronaldo coming back.

7.) 03 Jun 2018 00:08:11
Does this mean no room for Ander? Could well be sold.

8.) 03 Jun 2018 01:35:29
Hope Herrera will stay. He might be behind Pogba, Matic, and Fred if Fred indeed comes, but he is a valuable player. Tactically aware, committed, and he loves the club.

9.) 03 Jun 2018 05:30:32
Torn on that as he will then stop any of the young lads getting a chance.

10.) 03 Jun 2018 08:14:48
I say cash in on Herrera, he's ok but goes down to easy and gives to many free kicks away, if we get Fred in he will be the link between Matic/ Pogba, Herrera will be a bit part player on big wages which is pointless IMO.

11.) 03 Jun 2018 09:28:36
We should keep herrerastill need some decent squad player matic Fred and pogba will not be available every game.

12.) 03 Jun 2018 11:23:45
Sorry FZZ I just meant out of other clubs Barcelona are favourites. You are right in that the best odds are on him staying put.



11 Aug 2017 14:11:12
Whats peoples opinions of Jose in talks with Zlatan do we really want him back, Will he be happy as a bit part player, do we really want to be paying his wage instead of signing someone else. More importantly how funny is this whole Countinho saga.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:28:00
I don't want him back, he has been a great icon but his age and lack of mobility are a concern as is the expectation he will have of playing. I don't see that it makes sense for us at all.

As for Coutinho, I love that after tapping up VVD Liverpool are getting a taste of it.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 15:03:57
Got to say its time to move on. Felt really sorry he couldn't play in the Uefa final after all he did to get us there and what he did last season but to pay his wages again now seems daft but it would be a real slap in the teeth to Rashford and Martial now if they were edged out to accomodate him.

Dont forget these are big seasons now for Martial and Rashford, throw Ibra in and I think you won't see the best of those young lads.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 15:06:17
If he's happy to accept a bit part role playing as an when and wages aren't too high I'd be ok to have him in the dressing room.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:27
Totally agree with that mort. if we need goals and they aren't coming from the young ones. (who deserve their chance) . He's handy to have around.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:58
I think his experience and stature could prove to be vital come the business end of the season when we are hopefully still challenging.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 15:28:48
Hopefully on Feb 1 next year we will still be challenging for 4 trophies. Jose likes his big powerful strikers and lukako can't play every game. Having ibra around gives us 2 powerful strikers and 2 speedy ones so we have good options.
As long as the deal is sensible wages wise it's a yes let's keep him from me.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 15:44:03
More deluded ridiculous nonsense on their page again, asking the ed about it the ed telling them he wants to go and then the heads go firmly in the sand refusing to believe that their South American icon wants to play for Barcelona. deja vu anyone 😂😂.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 18:18:45
Ibra coming in when he's fit until the end of the season is a good move. It will keep the forwards on their toes knowing that he's coming, and will bring that vital experience he too. I know people will say that it will block younger players but think of it this way, they all have from now until then to cement a place in the side, to prove they are good enough to keep him out of the team.

9.) 11 Aug 2017 19:08:17
And do you think he will sign a deal knowing he has to rotate danny?

It's a bad move imo we should be building a side that gets lukaku 40 goals a season and a few from the supporting cast . I love ibra and I'm grateful for some of the special moments last season but I think it's time to move forward and I think with ibra signing again it will stunt our forward momentum.



31 Aug 2015 17:40:49
Rumours that Wilson could go out on loan to WBA too. That would mean Januzaj, Wilson and Chicarito all going out with only Martial coming in at the moment. They must be more coming in at least a wide player or striker


1.) 31 Aug 2015 18:57:23
One more striker is surely in

2.) 31 Aug 2015 19:30:58
I think that Berbatov is available



02 Jun 2015 14:04:04
Have to say Madrid have been very shrewd with the DDG transfer. Get Benitez in which will cause a bit of unrest with fans then sign DDG to smooth things over. No matter what u think of how they conduct themselves, they are good at what they do.


1.) 02 Jun 2015 15:06:09
Madrid have just got that pull about them being 10x champions league winners and being a part of the so called Galacticos but they do a lot of things wrong in my eyes including letting Carlo Ancelotti go. I don't see Benitez as a step up and I think it won't be long until the fans are calling for his head when he fails to topple Barca. Getting rid of a manager who just won the Champions League just because they failed this year by a point or what ever is ridiculous and if it were chelsea we would be slamming them. Too much respect for Madrid in my eyes no matter how good they can be.

2.) 02 Jun 2015 15:11:17
Madrid are an absolute toxic club.

3.) 02 Jun 2015 16:18:31
Benitez isn't just a step down, he's the whole bloody staircase!

4.) 02 Jun 2015 16:33:32
If its on sky i beleive it! If he wants to go let's get at least £30mil snd push for lloris

Solskjaer has won 3 out the last 15 games, that performance looked no different from any of the awful games he oversaw at the end of last season. No other club would have given him the his full time and then to leave him with that squad is unforgivable. We have no players to come in and change things around that is pretty much the team we have. This season is a write off already ole does not have the talent to make poor
Players better. That performance will. E the normal standard until ole and Woodward are gone. Surely even the clueless glazers have to sack Woodward when ole goes. 4 managers all failures how much longer can he be allowed to ruin the club. Look at Juventus bench today everyone of them would be our best player.


1.) 24 Aug 2019 17:57:08
Can't argue with any of that. Though two missed penalties have not helped. Score these, confidence grows and all of a sudden, we're in a much better position.
Have to say that i kept saying that the window was poor in as far as we did not strengthen in midfield. Looking at the next 4 fixtures, i can't see us getting more than 3-4 points.

2.) 24 Aug 2019 18:04:38
You are being a doom and gloom merchant jaimej, don't you know we are going the right way.

3.) 24 Aug 2019 18:05:47
James Garner has to be brought in immediately, the boy oozes class and I ain’t one for gushing over young kids. Lingard has to be dropped.

4.) 24 Aug 2019 18:23:53
Its not about being negative or toxic, but OGS is an amateur coach managing a world class football club. Adding the board to the equation the result can't better than this.

This is going to be a very long and paintful season.

5.) 24 Aug 2019 19:51:09
World class football club


Not a chance.

6.) 24 Aug 2019 20:12:35
Its sad to see.
Its like we are in the lab trying formulas for a miracle that won't happen. Top 6 will be huge even for us because with this tiny squad in mid and attack, Everton and Wolves have all the tools to overtake us.



06 Aug 2019 17:25:01
2 days to go and this team currently looks like mid table will be an achievement. 2 out of 5 positions strengthened leaving us missing a DCM, AM, CF. Rw has not been addressed but i think we can get by with the players we have. How has Woodward been allowed to go into another season without signing a midfielder, we were horrendous there last year and have lost two players since then. Really looking forward to a season without a proven goal scorer up top too. yet again another window where we have at a push treaded water whilst all around have strengthened. Given Woodward's amateur negotiating deficiencies getting another transfer over the line now looks impossible. The clown has wasted this week courting another shiny shiny signing in Dybala. Some one remind him shirt sales do not reward you with league table points.


{Ed047's Note - hope you’re wearing body armour and a ballistic helmet!

1.) 06 Aug 2019 17:54:15
Jaime, take a couple of your tablets and keep calm, we will be contending for the title this year, everything is ok mate.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 18:00:43
We are some way off competing for the title Ole. A clear and decent playing style and top four would please me but I can't see it the way things are at the moment.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 18:09:37
Ole ole


If we can get a midfield player in, keep Pogba and buy a Lukaku replacement we have a chance of top four. If we replace Pogba with a lesser player, don’t add another in midfield, don’t replace Lukaku then it will be a scramble for top six.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 18:20:25
We will be 3rd or 4th. Chelsea or Arsenal. are not going to make the top4.

5.) 06 Aug 2019 18:21:10
We threw away top 4 last season I expect us to be better this season .
People need to chill out.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 18:27:32
Ole, are you having a laugh? As it is at present, top 6 is our level. Midfield looks very weak. If Pogba goes and not replaced, then top6 is not easily achievable. We have very little creativity from midfield, and that's why our goals scored tally has been so poor last year. Nothing has changed apart from losing two midfielders and not replacing them.
City, Liverpool, Spurs are much better, and arguably arsenal, Chelsea are too.
Leicester and Everton will be stronger too.
There will be no challenging for the league I'm afraid.

7.) 06 Aug 2019 18:31:41
Jred how did we throw it away, ole got an easy run when he came on board, then we went backwards.

8.) 06 Aug 2019 18:46:18
We were even lucky to be in the mix for top 4. Just were not good enough.

I hope with the improvements we've made in defence that we have a chance of competing for top 4 this year.

Being realistic as I'm not convinced OGS is the right man.

9.) 06 Aug 2019 19:02:06
I also expect us to be better 3 good signings. We have lots of time to shift rojo and darmian if we get an offer from a blind chairman in Europe.
3 good signings should improve us.
Rash martial and sanchez have huge improvement in them from last year.

Midfield is a huge concern pogba aside our other ptions are largely unproven inexperienced and matic is on the decline.

Shaw and lindelof can also imorove.

I still think we will sign at least 1 more hoofully 2.

10.) 06 Aug 2019 19:02:43
Leicester and Everton? We where pretty poor well below par last season and still finished 14 points above.
Cows in fields, everyone else amazing .
The amount of stick fellaini got off the same people who are now up in arms that he hasn't been replaced .
Which he has by mctom .

11.) 06 Aug 2019 19:13:51
It's called being positive lads, you can't bet against anything happening with the magic of Manchester United.

12.) 06 Aug 2019 19:15:01
Agreed ken. I think holding onto pogba is a big mistake too.

Hopefully we can correct that in the coming day or two and get a replacement in. He will be a problem.

13.) 06 Aug 2019 20:07:30
And don't forget Jose has left.

14.) 06 Aug 2019 20:09:11
Holy sh*t! Sometimes i wonder why i don't post more often, but Jaime has just reminded me. I'm pretty sure you are either a wind up merchant or you have serious issues, either way you are a huge grey cloud around these parts.

Give it a rest fella!

15.) 06 Aug 2019 20:14:53
We threw it away because most these highly paid professionals when asked to run for 90 minutes could only manage it for 30 minutes at best. Which cost us games.

16.) 06 Aug 2019 20:32:03
Keep the faith lads ✊.

17.) 06 Aug 2019 20:40:38
I suspect the ssme people that called for the manager or the last manager to be sacked will do same again soon enough. Just the way some purple are. Never happy.

18.) 06 Aug 2019 21:47:35
And that's the truth Ken. A good few hypocrites on the page.

19.) 06 Aug 2019 22:19:42
So many people hating the team we have right now.

I’ll put my neck on the line now and say Mctominay will be good for us this year he’s ready to step up.

We have martial, Rashford, James, Chong, mata, pogba, Lingard, Sanchez (big if) who are all creative players. Once they play for a manager with the right mindset to let them play we will see a big difference.

As for everyone strengthening who have Chelsea signed? Arsenal signed Pepe but the defence has more holes in it than a siv and spurs have signed a defensive midfielder.

I remember when I had my first beer Jamie so it happens to all of us, right now I think you should sleep it off and deal with the hangover tomorrow.

20.) 07 Aug 2019 01:22:34
Mid table haha classic.



05 Aug 2019 11:52:13
Is there a link to the season predictions this year.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 13:00:33
It's not normally up until the transfer window closes I think.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 13:12:02
I think ajh said he wasn't going to do it this year.



06 Jun 2019 23:09:00
The most depressing thing about that pathetic England performance was the knowledge that Lingard would be replicating that abysmal performance for us again next season. Was he the worse substitution ever made in any sport ever.


{Ed004's Note - I thought he played quite well? Unfortunate not to score and had a decent attempt shortly after.}

1.) 06 Jun 2019 23:35:29
I thought he played really well and was an inch away from getting the winner. I actually txt a mate saying I hope this is the Lingard we get next season, was running at themand creating a lot of space.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 23:38:49
This has to be a joke surely, i am not lingards biggest fan but he was pretty decent when he came on today, linked up well and made some good runs.

Englands problem is they have no midfield and struggle to keep ball posession and have defenders who are prone to individual errors. Seems quite familiar to us come to think of it.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 23:39:49
Jesse played ok. Took his offside goal very well and caused problems in the Dutch defence.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 06:17:51
He had a decent game. What we miss is a Modric type player who can move the ball through midfield quickly. That could be the difference for this generation of England players.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 06:26:03
People see what they want to see.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 09:52:20
Jessie did more when he came on than the 100m rated Sancho did before he came off.

So do you no longer want Sancho? Internationals are notoriously difficult to judge a player by. Messi hardly ever plays well for Argentina, yet is still arguably the greatest footballer of all time.
When you are dropped into a new team with a different playing style, different players, different expectations, with little time to train and work together. All combine to make international football disjointed, making it hard for anyone to play well consistently at that level.

How many players have been bought on the back of a good world cup then flopped? And how many have gone into a tournament expected to rip it up only to struggle.

This post is just another pathetic attempt to shoot down one of our own players, one who has come through the academy and one of the few who gives 100% out on the pitch every week.

This is why our fans are labelled pathetic glory supporters.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 09:54:29
Lingard did well, that English defense though, mot so much!

8.) 07 Jun 2019 10:25:02
Not sure I was watching the same match! Lingard was great when he came on and unfortunate not to start IMO. GS got in wrong last night, it should have been a back 3 with our wide players doubling up. We were never going to have much joy through the middle. Lingard as a second striker/ no10 dropping into the space would have been far more effective.

9.) 07 Jun 2019 10:37:16
Boys lingard did OK, just OK,
He had another chance opened up his body and hit the corner flag,
That's what he should be for united a good sub, you'll win no league with Jesse starting every game.
Memphis looked a better player last night.
I mean Jesse is no Scholes, or a silva or a de bruyne, I could go on but I won't.

10.) 07 Jun 2019 12:22:05
Agree with Leahy12, Can we challenge for titles with Lingard? "NO"
He was average yesterday and saw someone comparing him with Modirc, Really?

11.) 07 Jun 2019 12:42:27
Agreed leehy, never been a lingard admirer. Not sure what he does?
Depay was superb.

12.) 07 Jun 2019 13:04:34
Leahy, why are you comparing Jesse with Scholes, Silva and De Bruyne?

There's no reason at all to compare players, but if you insist, it should be Pogba that you are comparing to those players, not Jesse.

13.) 07 Jun 2019 13:25:38
Wazza because they are the type of midfield players you need to win leagues and cups.

14.) 07 Jun 2019 14:23:27
Maybe if we keep him long enough jesse will score. Winning goal in an fa cup final. Oh wait.

15.) 07 Jun 2019 16:22:20
Leahy, yes, but isn't Pogba supposed to be that player for us?

Or are you admitting that Lingard is above Pogba, but under at the level of KdB, etc.?

16.) 06 Jun 2019 23:44:02
I thought he did ok to ed004
Weak in midfield and awful at the back.
It will be analysed to death but just awful defending by stones.
3 poor decisions within the space of 6 seconds.
Some other observations
Depay was as wasteful as ever but still got an assist for the stats people quote without watching games. But he did show he has improved somewhat.
Deligt good goal big error. That wrote aside he played well.
Vvd looked foot perfect.
Donny van der beek looks a player every time i see him.
Sancho likewise.
Kane looks unfit
85m for maguire is ludicrous.



30 Apr 2019 20:37:54
Utd should be using their affiliation with Van der Saar to buy Van der Beek and De Ligt whatever the cost. Superb players wouldn't cost as much as some players we have been linked with and they display the right attitude on the pitch work hard for everything.


1.) 30 Apr 2019 20:48:52
Whats the point in buying these ajax players who are doing so well to play a style of football that is the complete opposite of what they are doing now?

This ajax team builds up play from the back, presses in a cordinated fashion and has the majority of ball posession.

Under ole we have sat back and relied on counter attacks apart from a brief period when he initially took over.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 20:51:52
I agree but what makes you think either would want to come here?

3.) 30 Apr 2019 20:55:37
That Daley Blind looks decent too.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 20:59:59
The system is so relevant.

I’m not sure how Ole wants us to play yet. His purchases in the summer will tell us.

5.) 30 Apr 2019 21:04:46
Tony I was so gutted to see blind go. Always thought he was underrated. Brilliant footballing brain but lacked speed or strength. How we kept Jones, smalling and Rojo before him I’ll never know. Would have been decent in defensive midfield too. Glad to see him doing so well.

6.) 30 Apr 2019 21:06:50
AJH, we should re-sign Daley, just to admire him.

7.) 30 Apr 2019 21:29:39
Got lovely hair aswell.

8.) 30 Apr 2019 21:44:15
Those cheek bones 👌.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 22:59:04
We have had a few players like blind and still have half a dozen or more that are obviously good players but are not suited to the epl either now or in some cases ever.

Pogba won’t go now but will be off next season cannot blame him he has been given no support in that midfield. How Woodward is allowed to dictate transfer policy is beyond me, he is a laughing stock to other clubs. Yet again another appalling transfer window. I know we got maguire and AWB in but we could have had both of them in on day 1 of the window and paid exactly what we paid anyhow. He has again failed to sign a midfielder and we currently minus pogba have the worst midfield in the top half of the table and the others are all strengthening. Sold lukaku without a recognised goal scorer now at the club, genius. As long as Woodward is at the club it will go nowhere but backwards. 7th place this season providing Pogba stays fit.

7 wins in his last 33, is there a worse record in football. Yet there seems to be absolutely no pressure on him. His post match interviews are almost as pathetic as his inept management skills.
