After Wengers quotes I feel the deal is nearly done.

Alexis is a fantastic player. I remember being on the site years ago when he was still at Udinese and we were all hopefull of getting him then. Football porn was the term thrown around.

Money wise. couldn't give a toss. Like any business, if you head hunt someone from a rival you have to be prepared to pay. Sanchez is well within his rights to get the best deal for him and if United are happy to offer it, wheres the problem?

Yes he's 29. But he's fit as a fiddle. Works his balls off and can unlock any defence in the world.

Was I the only fan looking at the Alexis/ city deal a few months ago brimming with jelousy? I doubt it. I hated the feeling that one of the best players in the world was available and we hadnt been mentioned! If that kind of calibre of player is available we should be going for him. I would have been pissed if we never even made an enquiry. We did and now he's on his way.

Fans need to get over the money side of things. We try to educate ourselves but in reality, we have little understanding of how a club is run. Let alone one the size of united.

So sit back, keep checking your phone and wait for Alexis to be holding our number 7 shirt.

Any other teams fans knocking the deal is just jelous and rightly so.

Spot on :)


2.) 18 Jan 2018 17:02:37
Great post mate. Couldn't have put it better myself. If the club couldn't afford to get Sanchez and pay him, they wouldn't. Simple.

Ask yourselves this, would you rather have Sanchez or not? I know what I pick.


3.) 18 Jan 2018 19:48:44
Totally agree James Mack. Just wish they would get the deal done and dusted. Saw the tweet Lingard put on regarding Sanchez medical . Wonder if he finds it funny losing his place in the team. Pillock.
I'll keep my mobile to hand waiting for the news of Sanchez. Data allowance allowing that is.


4.) 18 Jan 2018 21:24:47
If we can swap Mkhitaryan for Sanchez that is unbelievably good business!


5.) 19 Jan 2018 08:07:36
Top post mate! The money side of things doesn't matter, we will make enough money in Sanchez 7 strips sold to make the transfer fee back. Great to be linked with a top name and to get him especially.

Welcome to the club, Alexis!


6.) 19 Jan 2018 08:54:36
People only care about cash if they have an issue with the player.
Good player Sanchez and could be the cherry on top of what is a very good squad .
Good time to kick on in the second half of the season.


7.) 19 Jan 2018 09:28:36
Rock the red, on current form I don't see Lingard losing his place to Sanchez.

I think we'll see Pogba and Matic in midfield, with Lukaku up top. Then Sanchez, Lingard and one of Martial or Rashford behind Lukaku.

Lingard is probably one of our most in form players right now.


8.) 19 Jan 2018 10:10:42
I posted on the teams page the other day that this could evolve into 2 up top. With lukaku and sanchez up top, a number 10 and then 3 in midfield of pogba, matic and another. Martial and rashfors offer width if we need to change things and both can play top. Or its just a 433.

Sanchez offers a lot tactically. Its a no brainer.

Bbc reporting that unless we get Ramos that De Gea is staying another year.

We might lose ;20 mill but I'm happy that Real can't expect to get their way every time. 20 mill is nothing to a club our size. With the kit deal kicking in and European money, we won't miss it.

Hope we stick to our guns and Ddg has a blinder of a season and he leaves a champion once again. He has not forced the move and there is always that ray of hope he signs an extension to at least get his worth next summer.

jamesmack8

1.) 17 Jul 2015 19:10:18
It would be nice if they had the same stance with psg for di Maria either keep him or tell them to pay what we paid for him their desperate for him and we don't want to sell I think we should keep him now we have the players to bring out the best in him we shld not take a loss of 15 million


2.) 17 Jul 2015 19:18:23
This is going to go on till the last day of the transfer window. Utd have a contingency in place if it does, I think it's paying oblak's release clause!! Could one of the eds confirm if they know of a release clause in lloris's contract too, I've been told that it also includes one.
Cheers


3.) 17 Jul 2015 19:43:55
if he doesn't sign a new contract i would sell him and buy a new keeper as soon as


4.) 17 Jul 2015 20:01:55
DDG should just either stay or leave. Make him rot in the bench. Had enough of it already.


5.) 17 Jul 2015 20:25:50
Why should he 'rot' on the bench? He's not asked to leave. He's not refusing to play or publicly slating the club. He's a young Spanish lad that wants to go back home. He's given years of loyal service, has been happy with 60k a week and pretty much single handedly assured us champions league football this season.

What an absurd comment.


6.) 17 Jul 2015 20:28:19
I totally agree de gea is a fantastic gk and I really hope he stays but the last thing we need is for him to leave near theend of the transfer window and we can't get anyone else in


7.) 17 Jul 2015 20:56:57
I love the stance of not selling him, DDG has never said he is unhappy here just that he would like to go to madrid, the fans won't turn on him, he will continue to play well and if he leaves on a free we don't lose anything, we never had the money and his value will have been written off. If he plays like he did the last 2 years and we have a much better side in front of him he could win us the league, I would take a 20 million loss to win the league any day of the week.


8.) 17 Jul 2015 21:01:45
Make him rot on the bench? Great fan!


9.) 17 Jul 2015 21:09:56
I'm sure I'm probably wrong but I saw somewhere we'd only have to sell di Maria for 48 million to break even.


10.) 17 Jul 2015 21:22:41
Does anyone really think we'll be teaching RM a lesson by not selling DDG now! They are happy to wait and will get him for nothing next year. In the meantime his commitment to us may weaken and other players will know he wants out. We should stop posturing and sell him to RM now.


11.) 17 Jul 2015 21:41:28
Guys don't be so naive. If you really thought he hasn't said anything publicly is out of respect, you are kidding yourselves. Due to the complexity of the dealings he realized United was not going to budge, so if he were to stay due to contract agreement he didn't want to make a bad name for himself for the remaining year. I respect him for making us reach 4th. Hands down he played the most part in it. But, he shouldn't hide his inner want and think us for fools to now know it. He should have made his intention clear than have us fans sweat all summer and plead to him. He is not saying anything because that's bad for the deal. He stills expect to leave if possible this summer. That's the real thing here. Don't fool yourselves.


12.) 17 Jul 2015 22:56:17
Think the bloke has handled the whole thing well as the club have.

If he stays for a year and performs how he has been that's fine by me and it will also be nice to have Madrid dance to our tune they are the biggest bully in the playground( with us being perhaps 2nd 😜)


13.) 18 Jul 2015 00:09:40
I'm with Dean 100% dg has handled it all right on the line and very professional and so have the club. No name calling or any 'sterling' behavior just an air of professionalism and class with no fingers being pointed. The club have stood staunch and shown that they won't be bullied and you've got to wonder whether van gaal has brought that to the table, he's definitely a not messing about character who's obviously respected in international football circles. I think he could lead us right into another period of domination.personally I'm proper made up how things are going at the min and I think that's how by far the majority of the club feel.I can't wait to see what happens over the next few weeks


14.) 18 Jul 2015 00:51:50
De Gea is contracted to United for a further 12 months. I think some folk are forgetting he's no obligation to sign a new deal just so we can get a decent fee for him.

I believe he will honour the last year of his contract as he's honoured the rest: professionally.

I read De Gea's family wanted him to return home to Madrid well over a year ago and they are annoyed that Jorge Mendes hasn't been able to extract him earlier, especially as De Gea has turned down several improved wage offers.

De Gea will return home to Madrid at some point. That should either be now for the £25m+ that would be appropriate or next year for nothing. Either way I do think Woodward has played his hand well with Real. One could argue we should be putting young talents on longer than 4/5 year contracts if we expect them to be first teamers. If we had done with DDG the dynamic would be different, I.e, Real would be looking at £40m+ to sign him irrespective of the fact he / his family may still want him to return home.


15.) 18 Jul 2015 08:57:20
RedatHeart - it's ages since I've posted here but I feel I have to respond to you.

DDG wants to go back to Madrid for personal reasons and because he wants to play for Real. He's Spanish. Of course he wants to play for Real if he gets the chance. Why should that upset us? What's your view on Schneiderlin and his lack of loyalty to Southampton? What about Sterling? Hey, he was honest in the way he behaved, right?

It doesn't matter what DDG wants or thinks. He is behaving professionally and treating his existing contract with respect, so we should all respect him for that in return.


16.) 18 Jul 2015 19:18:25
Its 100% certain that DDG will leave this summer.
There is no chance the glazers would throw away 20 million (its what he's worth with a year left on his contract) - they are business men - not fans - never forget that


17.) 18 Jul 2015 23:14:06
Jgb,

It's not 100% certain at all, don't talk rubbish. Would you stake your house on it?

Tonight was a wake up call. I hate people losing their jobs, but Ole is a dead man walking. Even if he makes it until the summer, he has to be replaced with someone with experience - Allegri ideally. He is learning English but worryingly, the only job I see potentially being available is City if Pep does a runner.

More importantly, the club needs a structure in place to succeed. The last 7 years have been poor from the top down. Bad appointments, bad signings and a plan that has changed so many times that we must be on plan g now.

Lets not kid ourselves either, some of the players are not good enough at all. On the live chat I got people pointing to 2nd in the league and the Europa and League cup wins. Jose stated 2nd was his best acheivement in football with that squad and we all scoffed. A man who has won trophies everywhere and he said that was his biggest acheivement.

Also, the league cup and Europa are not top competitions really. I hate the fact we won the Europa as we should have never been in such a poor competition.
Yes Ole should do better, but let's not expect miracles with what he has too.

Shaw was woefull, Matic has declined, Lingard has regressed, Martial is not a 9, Mata is done, Bailey injured and Paul Pogba being a problem at the club that needs removing asap.

While the performances are not good enough on a consistent basis, I lay the blame squarely on the board. Imagine if we backed Jose after the 2nd place finish. Let him get rid of Pogba and bring in who he wanted. Not to be told 'Na mate, your one of the greatest managers ever, but we got this amazing scouting network here that hasn't failed and instead of that cm and cb you wanted, you got Fred. Oh and he's about 50 mill off the budget. No wonder he got pissed off.

So now we are in a window and we all know that Ole is not going to get players he wants as he won't be here next season, so that's pointless. Brace yourself for some more 'club signings' and fingers crossed for a manager who can wave a magic wand over a squad assembled by 5 different managers in 7 years. These next 8 months are going to be a hell of a ride for us fans. But hey, at least we are still making a shed load of money.

Good post james.


2.) 02 Jan 2020 09:20:51
shocking performance last night but you could see it coming with shaw, matic and lingard starting. williams deserved to stay in the side and so did peirrera even though i'm not his biggest fan he offers more than lingard. our midfield was totally overun last night we take one step forward then backwards again. after that show they should all compensate the fans even if its only ticket money, my lad got home at 3.00am this morning.


3.) 02 Jan 2020 09:24:16
Surely just act and get Pochettino in to get the players used to his methods and new coaches. The season is done.


4.) 02 Jan 2020 09:42:40
Great post james.


5.) 02 Jan 2020 09:42:40
Ole seems to know other teams better than his own the way he was talking about the arsenal players you would think he would have known how to play against them a little, I know we have been a laughing stock for years now but it's starting to look like there is no way back and if it does it's going to take another Ferguson.

I'll always follow United but this will be my last year of a season ticket i'm turning into a arm chair fan, i'm not wasting my hard earned money funding them players anymore no desire no nothing, had enough.


6.) 02 Jan 2020 09:44:40
Eric,

It really really isn't, we are 5 points off top 4 and still in every cup competition, the season is far from done, people are ridiculous at times, we lost another game, suck it up and crack on. Hope the players don't think the same way.


7.) 02 Jan 2020 09:52:38
Since the europa got changed to give the winners a route to the champions league its actually become an important competition.


That is the only way we are making it into the competition next season.


But put matic and fred and lingard in any teams midfield you are going to struggle.


8.) 02 Jan 2020 09:55:32
Gds

It’s fans with your mindset who accept this mediocrity we have stooped too who are half the problem. The club has been run into the ground. Mark my words were 5 years if we make the right appointment after olly from competing for the league, pitiful. Top 4 and the league cup means nothing to me.


9.) 02 Jan 2020 10:07:45
Top post James.


10.) 02 Jan 2020 10:19:08
Shaw is bang average at best. Goes forward, recieves ball and passes it back to defence or midfiled. He doesn't take on players and thus all the opposition has to do is close him down. He cannot take on defenders and cross. I cannot remember a left back with such a weak shot . It's best to leave Matic and Lingard alone. They aren't worth the time. Europa League next season would be an achievement.


11.) 02 Jan 2020 10:35:52
GDS, we are not in every competition though are we? We cannot win the league and with performances like that last night we can go out of the rest of the competitions easily.

Also top 4 is not a competition. We should not be aiming for the top 4 trophy.


12.) 02 Jan 2020 10:42:55
The structure of the club itself is a mess.
Sacking a manager won't fix this.

The players seem to trust the manager and there is a harmony in the squad.
I believe the consistency will improve by bringing in a no 10 and a midfielder.


13.) 02 Jan 2020 10:47:13
GDS, exactly the reason why we get a proper coach in now. We could actually get top 4, maybe even win a cup.

I highly doubt we do either with Ole.


14.) 02 Jan 2020 11:07:15
its not the loss that is pissing people off, its the way we lose.

there is a trend, every single game we lose away from home we lose far to easy, and we don't score, the players are bottlers they don't have the fight or the will to give a crap.


15.) 02 Jan 2020 12:44:32
GDS - you actually think OGS can get this lot into Top 4? You’re having a laugh. This is not a reaction to one poor performance. The season is littered with them at least every other week. We are a mid table side and our style of play and results show that. We have Pogba doing what he wants when he wants because the manager and club are too soft, and we have the same tactics every week. No direction, rare quality, and no tactical awareness or desire. Sorry mate - The season is done. I love OGS as much as the next man, but crikey he’s out of his depth.

{Ed047's Note - no I’m certain he will be dead serious🤦‍♂️

5.) 06 Oct 2019 08:55:33
I have been to a lot of Utd Liverpool games, the first one in 1972 had Ted McDougal scoring. Been to some drubbings, the 70’s Liverpool side was very good indeed but some great games as well. I was at the 79 Semi final draw at Maine Road, it may have only been a draw but what an atmosphere. I went to both 85 semi finals against them. The Scouser fans were pretty violent at Goodison. Those games I mention because we were underdogs, but we knew that and got behind the team even more. Whether that will be enough this time is another matter.

Enjoy the game.


6.) 06 Oct 2019 18:30:38
Haha, liverpool will thrash us.


 

 

22 Sep 2019 22:19:47
Seeing the Ole out stuff trending on twitter annoys the heck out of me.
Is he up to the job? Possibly not. But I will happily give him time as I know every move he makes, he will have the best interest of the club at in the front of his mind.
What we have to look at is Woodward.

His reign has been nothing short of a shambles. Bad appointments, bad signings, bad contracts. He is like QVC salesman that bigs up his product to anyone stupid enough to listen and when you really look at what's in front of you, you realise you have just overpaid for crap. I am disgusted he has lasted this long. No matter who is in the dugout, they will still be dealing with this toss-pot. I am pissed at the performance but more pissed that the club is being run into the ground like this. Something has to be done.

We need to vocalise as much as possible. We have been labelled as toxic fans, well let's aim some of that toxicity at Ed. Let's make him unwelcome at Old Trafford. I would be happy if 75k stood up on the 20th minute of every home game and boo the crap out of him. A minute of abuse every home game until the owners have to act. Embarrass out of them. Sounds stupid. Might make us look bad as a fan base but what have we got to lose? This club is losing its identity more and more every week and he is getting a free pass. Its not good enough. He is not good enough. He has to go.

more like 90 mins of woodward is a w ker every home game.


2.) 22 Sep 2019 23:30:05
Nothing will change until we stop bringing the money in

Woodward got a raise last year

Woodward is doing exactly what the owners want.


They don't care about the performances on the pitch.


3.) 23 Sep 2019 07:12:20
Totally agree with James. I think if the crowd did something symbolic at every home game, then the owners WILL take note. They are in the entertainment business and they know that actions like this will give them a bad image. Sponsors will also take note.
I think it's a great idea.
By the way, the £900m spent since fergie retired is fair enough, but they have recouped more than half of that in player sales. So their net investment is very average.


4.) 23 Sep 2019 07:15:09
I am really dissapointed about the board not learning from their mistakes.
Handling of transfers are shambles.
If they had higher ambition, we would have addressed our weaknesses.


 

 

07 Aug 2019 09:21:43
Looks like the Eriksen deal is not going to happen. Dybala off to Spurs too. Where does this leave Fernandes? Who knows anymore. We have known what we have needed since the start of last season.

Once again the summer has been a long, drawn out process. Maguire has taken months. The midfield has again, not been adressed and Ed releasing press breifs to show 'he was looking to spend'.

I feel we might be done in the market. If not, we will probably seriously overpay for someone like Longstaff. I have lost all faith in the recruiting process at the club, from the scouts, all the way to the top. I won't even follow the buzz, it just winds me up even more. I hope I am wrong but as we stand, we have about 6 players who need to leave and still need at least two in. Another piss poor performance in the market from us.

jamesmack8

1.) 07 Aug 2019 17:44:42
What if the 2 players you want are not available or are just not interested in moving to United. Do you sign 2 players for the sake of it, or promote from the academy.


 

 

02 Aug 2019 11:08:38
Is Maguire a 'club signing' or has Ole said 'I must have him no matter what? ' I just can't beleive with the figures being talked about that the club is backing Ole to the extent of an 80 Mill CB who is probably worth sonething in the 50 mill range. If we are prepared to spend that much on Maguire then why not on Koulibaly, Umtiti or Dias etc? This smells like a club signing, justlike Sanchez was. A name that will shift a few shirts and Ed can say we are sticking to our tradition of buying the best of British blah blah. I just can't see Ole rating him to this extent.
On the other hand we have Bruno Fernandes. He eptomises everything that Ole has said he wants in the team. Movement, technique and quick forward passing. I beleive he is exactly the kind of player Ole wants in his midfield with Pogba and McTominay. Yet we seem to be dragging our heels on this deal. Around 60 mill will get him and yet, a week to go and nothing. So is this a case of the club not backing the manager again? Are they regretting giving Ole the job and are reverting to type. AWB looks a great buy and James looks exciting. But they do fit the 'club identity' of young and British. So those were signings the club was happy to make and get social media buzzing nice and early.
I'm very sceltical. Not many have left and not many have come in. The same people are running the transfers as the last 6 seasons and this summer feels very similar. I hope I am wrong and we get 3 new faces through the door and a few out by the end of August but I will not hold my breath and that is down to experience of the last few years.

jamesmack8

1.) 02 Aug 2019 11:38:22
I think that this summer is symptomatic of the club’s failure to assemble a component and cohesive transfer strategy.

At the start of the summer the club had 4 clear targets: the two already signed, and Maguire and Fernandes. In addition, players needed to be moved on and decisions needed to be made regarding Pogba and Lukaku.

The issue is how we have approached these transfers. We have made insulting lowball offers for Fernandes, testing the patients of Sporting, and have um and awed about Maguire’s valuation. This means that the two transfers Ole wanted done before we went on tour are still up in the air.

In turn, we have placed ridiculous fees on our own players. Take Lukaku. A player who doesn’t fit with the manager’s approach, wants to leave, and has interested clubs. The player could have been sold to Inter for about £5m-£10m less than what we paid. This is sensible business for a player the club doesn’t want to keep. But we don’t do sensible. Then we have Pogba. A disruptive influence that has wanted to leave for over a year. What does the club do? Places a silly price on him that no one will pay.

So we have a transfer team that thinks we should make low offers for players that other clubs don’t want to sell, but thinks we should not accept a slightly lower fee for a player we don’t even want to keep.

We have been absolute crap at recruitment for years, and still think we are one of the big players in European football rather than a club in danger of drifting further and further away.


2.) 02 Aug 2019 11:50:00
I think Eddie has just forgotten to turn the fax machine on, as soon as he finds the on switch, transfers will be flooding through.


3.) 02 Aug 2019 12:38:59
So your slating us for not paying other clubs over inflated prices but then slate us for over inflating our prices. Contradictory.


4.) 02 Aug 2019 12:43:10
The club doesn't sign players to sell shirts. They make virtually nothing from shirt sales. It may be in the kit sponsors' interests for player turnover but if the club was signing players to please the them, they would probably be dictating someone with more widespread international recognition than Maguire.

The past 6 years have demonstrated incompetence in the market, it's true, and Ed002 has not been complimentary about Woodward and his team, but let's wait another week before we pour the vitriol.


5.) 02 Aug 2019 12:21:46
I work in IT support, someone get me up to manchester, I might be the most important addition to the staff in years. I'll show EW how to work the fax machine, and teach him about this wonderful new invention called "E-mail". Once he's up to speed, the transfers will start rolling in.

He doesn't seem too bright though, teaching him how to turn on the fax machine might take the rest of the window.


6.) 02 Aug 2019 12:24:17
Danny Pughnited - Why should we sell Lukaku for 10-15 million pounds less than what we value him at especially to Inter when 2 seasons ago they wanted 40-45 million pounds for a 30 year old winger.
We get our pants taken down by just about every club that we deal with because of who we are and the amount of money we have. clubs just take the piss out of us now.
Another thing is how do you know Bruno was one of the 4 targets? If he was surely we would of made an offer by now? There has never been an official approach or offer according to Sporting.
The club would have surely acted on it by now but they haven't and Spurs are now in the driving seat.


7.) 02 Aug 2019 12:57:36
No Mort. i'm slating the fact that if its a club signing, then we will splash the cash but if its a plqyer the manager actually wants, the purse strings are pulled tight.


8.) 02 Aug 2019 12:59:31
The club want to sell Lukaku, and the player wants to leave. The sensible thing is to take a £5-10m loss rather than keeping an unwanted player on massive wages. But yeah, we’ll really show Inter by hanging onto a player with no future at the club, whose value will only decrease, that’ll teach em.

We know that Fernandes is one of the primary targets because Ed002 has told us on multiple occasions.


9.) 02 Aug 2019 13:00:13
Come on Danny Inter initially proposed a ridiculous loan deal and then bid around £54m, that's at least £20m less than we paid for him. Lukaku may not necessarily fit Ole's style but the blokes a proven goal scorer. You don't even get Full backs for £50m theses days. If you look from a different perspective aren't Inter guilty of doing exactly what your accusing Utd of? He's supposedly their No1 transfer target a player their manager desperately wants and a player they've identified as being able to significantly improve their team. Utd are a rich Club they know full well they've got no chance of getting him for such a derisory fee and what other International proven goal scorer could they sign for £54m? He's under contact and at only 26 entering his peak years. He's Belgium's all time record goal scorer, why are we always so keen to undervalue our players but then criticise the Club when they sell players on the cheap.

I actually think your being a touch disingenuous when you say Utd don't want him. Lukaku may fallen behind Rashford in the pecking order but I still think Ole would be happy to keep him. He wants out because he's no longer first choice but competition should be expected at big Clubs and he should raise to the challenge rather than running away. He needs to get himself fit, work harder, improve his touch and prove he belongs in the team.

Even off the bench or playing a supporting role Lukaku will get us at least 15 league goals. Many of us would be happy to see him leave but he's still our most prolific goal scorer. These players come at a premium and I think the Club are absolutely correct at sticking to their valuation. Even if he doesn't move he'll still be a very important player in our squad.

In my opinion if we get Maguire over the line and end up keeping Lukaku and Pogba it will have been a decent window. We'll have addressed the problem positions at CB and RB and our defence on paper will look much stronger. I warned at the start of the window about re-building too quickly and whilst another CM and RW would have been nice theses positions can be addressed in other windows.

That's the whole thing about our transfer business, theirs no consistency, the last 6 years since Gill left and fergie, we have overpaid on transfers, overpaid player's, now we are told we are close to signing players but can't agree fees, afraid to overpay, how long are we after fernandes, maguire,
For a huge club that side of the club is a shambles.
We have 4 managers in the last 6 years, and down to bad buys and stupid contracts managers are getting blamed given the road.
Ole told us a few months ago some of these players won't play for united again, yet the only player who put in a good shift is gone herrera.
We will have our new players in early ole said,
Ole your heading down the same road as the last few managers.
And I've read on here preseason is brilliant under ole, rubbish, they are friendlies.
Where will we be at if pogba and lukkaku who want out start tooting round the pitch like they have done.
Get in a dof cause that Woodward is a business man not a football man,

That money is not one lump sum. They maybe got a 30 mill payment and the rest will come throughout Lukakus contract. So while we agreed an 70odd mill deal, we don't have that to spend. The books need to be balanced and spending money before you have received money is not how it works I'm afraid.

He's signed pre contract for Inter. Possibly going this month if adeal reached. Borthwick-Jackson has been recalled from loan so he might be off very soon.

Bailey pissed Jose off as he wouldn't play when injured. Never heard a thing about him rubbing people the wrong way Wazza.

1. Irwin
2. Ronny Johnsen
3. Henrik Larsson - was barely here but when you listened to Rooney and Ronaldo talk about how he helped them with his movement and advice, then see what they went in to be, I'll give him my number 3 spot. The Celtic connection obviously helps.

I don't see the hype in the guy really. Good player on his day but average a lot of the time. 50 mill for someone who repeatedly let's himself down with his off field behaviour, while captain of his club and when he knows other clubs were interested. Stupidity.

It had one game to go before a play off system and another load of games.

Disgusting. I just saw the video and it's disgraceful. These people are not fans. I hope they are identified and face criminal charges. A stain on the club.

Shapps - how dare you try and talk football on here.

Lads, no need to jump on peoples posts with negativity. Just don't reply. I think we have all been guilty of it in the past but let's not drive posters away because of it. We have seen a lot of posters come and go over the years because they said they don't want the hassle anymore. We might not agree with each other but share the bond of being United fans first or we wouldn't be on the site. I'm not saying don't have an opinion but no need to be hostile for the sake of it.
