Linked with grealish again, I still think he would of been an excellent signing on the summer . Carried on this season where he left off last season, been very good imo.


1.) 10 Nov 2020 22:20:27
I think Villa staying up cost us signing Grealish for max £50m last summer. As soon as they avoided relegation it was £80m or nothing and fair play for sticking to their valuation. We quickly moved on to a slightly different player in Van de Beek for half the quoted Grealish price. Very much a missed opportunity for me. I’d prioritise Grealish over Sancho. Not that I see us back in for him now.

2.) 11 Nov 2020 12:47:03
He’s exactly where he needs to be for me, big fish in a small pond.

He’s a talented player but he strikes me as someone who needs to be the centre of attention. His off-field antics don’t do him any favours either.

3.) 11 Nov 2020 13:10:51
Just read a comment that tickled me:
“Put Grealish on a pitch. Now tie his lgs together and he’s still better than J Henderson”. 😂.

4.) 11 Nov 2020 15:48:50
That is one of the most absurd and idiotic thing I have ever read. Grealish maybe better than what I think of him but he is nowhere near Jordan Henderson. Maybe JG might have more natural talent but Henderson's mindset is above most professionals let alone a flawed person off the field like JG.

5.) 11 Nov 2020 16:02:07
The humour bypass went well I see 😂.

6.) 12 Nov 2020 01:48:11
I got that your post was meant as humourous but still I found more absurdity in the comment scoobydog.
I don't think its your opinion either.

7.) 12 Nov 2020 11:29:52
What an absurd thing to find. 😉.



03 Oct 2020 18:48:27
Looks like we have signed cavani.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 19:07:24
Am I the only one who is genuinely excited about Cavani.
He would give us a different dimention to our game. I know many fans are thinking Alexis take two but I think Cavani could offer us alot. Is it desperate? Maybe. But we need another CF and we could do a lot worse than him.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 19:07:25
He's a very good player but I hope this isn't true. Very high wages and signing on fee for a number 9 when we badly need reinforcements in other areas ahead of that.

The Telles deal seems dead but if we couldn't stretch an extra few million for him but are willing to pay Cavani very high wages for a year or two, it shows the amateurs are at it again.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 19:10:09

4.) 03 Oct 2020 19:21:49
If it’s the only signing I’ll be gutted. If he supplements a left back and right winger I’ll be delighted.

5.) 03 Oct 2020 19:21:54
I don't like these kind of signings to be honest I think you should build for the future.
That said he might be a good fit with how we play, can and will play any of the front 3 positions .
2 years younger than ibra was when he signed .
But not the way forward imo, have to see how he does tho . Time will tell.

{Ed047's Note - to be fair, you have a fair few younger players and have been buying up more, your current front 3 our still young so can only really be a plus.

6.) 03 Oct 2020 19:22:25
Feels desperate - but if he comes as well as a RW then that’s more like it. Adds some serious firepower and a proper No9.

7.) 03 Oct 2020 19:22:40
I’d be happy with him too.
Ighalo gets worse each time he plays, whilst Martial is either incredible or woeful. Cavani will give us a genuine alternative option and he WILL score goals.

8.) 03 Oct 2020 19:26:17
He is a far better player than ighalo.

9.) 03 Oct 2020 19:26:33
We need maturity and we need winners, people with the right mentality. He may be past his best but he ticks those boxes and he’s still class.

10.) 03 Oct 2020 19:33:15
Cavani is injury prone, will demand huge sign on fee and huge wages, more than 33 years old.
Panic buy written all over it.

11.) 03 Oct 2020 19:58:53
Can any of the eds comment on hia professionalism, attitude etc? Is he a good guy to have around?

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in any tittle tattle about the incident with the koala bear.}

12.) 03 Oct 2020 20:05:18
Cavani will be an excellent veteran for our young players to learn from, just like Blanc and Larsson were, just like Mata is.

13.) 03 Oct 2020 20:11:55
Well we do have a history of signing big name stars past their best, the new Zlatan or Falcao. Shows a bit of desperation though as no way Cavani was a target at the beginning of the transfer window.
Makes you wonder what our transfer policy is, make stupid bids on top targets then sign a free agent who no-one else wanted.

14.) 03 Oct 2020 20:19:53
Would this signing be instead of pursuing a RW?

15.) 03 Oct 2020 20:22:04
Ed02 I have literally no idea what you're talking about.

{Ed002's Note - That is good - you won’t find out from me.}

16.) 03 Oct 2020 21:42:10
LOL Ed, we need more characters with koala gear tendencies.

17.) 03 Oct 2020 21:44:44
Signing another player past his best on massive wages. Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you do something like this. And totally redeem yourself!

18.) 03 Oct 2020 22:15:52
When people say he’s injury prone, do they mean he had a few injuries last season? He’s not been injury prone at all in his career and been rated highly wherever he’s played.

19.) 04 Oct 2020 07:50:38
I think this is a clever move i really do we needed another striker and u don't get much better than Cavani on a free if he's half the player he used to be then that's still miles better than ighalo.
I think its more important we get telles shaws not good enough and is always injured too and offers nothing going forward same as AWB on the other side so i would shift williams to RB play him and telles on either side would give us a whole new dimension as our full backs are too defensive for my likig at the moment.

20.) 04 Oct 2020 10:32:47
Ed002, I heard it was a Koala bear and it's mum wasn't very happy about it.



25 Aug 2020 10:58:38
Ed are united really showing an interest in fati and is there any chance of him leaving barcelona.


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}



01 Jul 2020 20:05:30
Smalling and sanzhez loaned for another 12 month.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 20:13:35
I guess it is till end of this season only. august 1st week max.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 20:14:38
That's not correct mate. Their deals have been extended to coincide with the remainder of the serie A season. Nothings been agreed for next season as of yet.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 22:10:25
ah must of mis read it.

4.) 02 Jul 2020 09:59:37
Loans to cover European ties in August still to be agreed.

5.) 02 Jul 2020 10:31:12
jred i seen on sky it said smalling loan for another season and Sanchez till end of current.

maybe a typo on sky.



27 Jun 2020 15:42:19
Sancho on the bench again.


{Ed0666's Note - probably had another unsanctioned haircut

1.) 27 Jun 2020 15:52:39
It’s obvious his head has been turned however with C.V. 19 etc I just can’t see us paying what Dortmund want. There might not be anyone pay it either so he could very well stay. Think it’s best for the lad to get on with it and not burn any bridges, after all Dortmund have been good for him.

So our last 2 wins against psg we have sat in and hit them on the break, so more of the same tonight .
3 at the back strong in cm and pace up top?


1.) 02 Dec 2020 17:36:47
given the group, I'll take a point today, from a lucky penalty or a 0-0 or defedning for the whole game.



30 Nov 2020 20:09:52
Intersting stat 93 league this season 47 away wins .
Last season 23 away wins in the first 100 games.


1.) 30 Nov 2020 20:29:07
Shappy did predict it and backed it up with his peer reviewed research!

2.) 30 Nov 2020 20:48:14
I need to change my betting pattern no wonder i can't get an accumulator up.

3.) 30 Nov 2020 21:54:14
Crowds do airead to make a difference jred. Professionals or not.
Our away support is much more vocal than our home support too. So maybe it won't affect us as badly.

4.) 01 Dec 2020 05:58:07
It’s our home form that’s dreadful. We are on a record run away from home, yet at OT we are struggling badly.

5.) 01 Dec 2020 10:30:42
Do people think the two things are linked?

It's human nature to feel pressured when 95% of a 30-70k crowd are on your back. People make mistakes when under pressure.

Without crowds home advantage has to a large extent been neutralised, we are seeing this by more teams winning away games.

For a club like ours, that has by far the biggest stadium in the league, it only makes sense that our stadium might put players and officials under more pressure than other stadiums. 70,000 fans screaming for a decision over 30,000 at some other stadiums will make a difference. While for teams coming up from the championship they might have only played in front of 50k fans once or twice, but normally play in front of 16-25k. I can imagine walking out in front of a packed Old Trafford would be a little more intimidating than a packed Aston Gate.

Obviously for us the home advantage due to crowd size is likely bigger than most, meaning we suffer more than most when that advantage is neutralised as it is at the moment.

6.) 01 Dec 2020 16:59:17
Well then hopefully, without restrictions, we should be battling it out for top spot with Arsenal next season.



29 Nov 2020 15:59:57
Its great to see cavani in a united shirt .
Good 3 points 8 away wins on a row club record.


1.) 29 Nov 2020 16:02:44
Cavani is superb but they will struggle agaibst ob Psg if they perform like they have in the first half.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 16:06:03
And they will win if they perform like they did in the 2nd. Didn’t think we were that bad first half, missed 3 big chances and got done by 2 set pieces.

3.) 29 Nov 2020 16:10:48
Singh i thought we were good all game and should of really been ahead in the first half. The free kick was due to a daft Fred foul and the corner is a quality delivery. Cavani probably has to start next league match now.

4.) 29 Nov 2020 16:20:33
Credit Ole tbf made the change, went bold and it paid off. Tho it goes to show, play your best players and you get wins. Cavani, Bruno, Donny, Rash, Deano should be starting week on week.



24 Nov 2020 23:29:02
Not a lot of on here tonight?
When we lose its all about the manager being inept i thought after winning it would all be about the manager being amazing .

Joking aside difficult group this with RB and psg in it, still a bit of work to do 100%.
But to be top of the group after 4 games having scored 12 goals in 4 games isn't bad going .


1.) 25 Nov 2020 00:25:46
Just caught up jred.

Thought it was a good game. Mr beek is so reminiscent of a an older paul scholes when we see him play deep like that. Only worry is he seems more likely to lose the ball than Scholesy, but he might just make that role his own in good time.

I thought the defense was better than people are giving credit for. In attack we looked good. In fact the general sharpness and desire of the whole team looked good, right up until game management phase. Then we looked pedestrian again.

Got to be happy with UCL results.

2.) 25 Nov 2020 06:55:47

If you want an honest appraisal.

The level of opposition was poor yet over the whole game they created a lot of chances. In the first half we looked progressive and forwarding looking. Telles was pushed up hugging the left touchline and we crossed the ball. DvB had a good game, especially first half, found space passed forward. Promising from a positive team selection.

What happened at half time? Second half it looked like a change of emphasis, instructed from attack to consolidation, Telles became a left back. Why did we become more conservative?

Instanbul had a lot of reasonable efforts on goal, they scored after what was obvious to the eye, that we had switched off a bit, seemingly trying to see the game out. Yet when we were flagging a bit Ole sat on the sidelines seemingly happy.

Good overall result, perhaps the scoreline flattered us because of the number of efforts and good efforts they had, game of two halves, the first good, the second ordinary but a needed win.

3.) 25 Nov 2020 07:23:27
Well whoever predicted Seville would “knock us out of the Europa League again” is wrong. Seville are through.

4.) 25 Nov 2020 08:11:46
The level of the opposition was poor. it always is when we win .
Like I said in my op difficult group this and there is still a lot of work to do but to be top of the group after 4 games having scored 12 goals in 4 games isn't bad going.

We lost a bit if shape second half, a few players greenwood in particular went chasing goals.
Ole brought matic on pushed Bvd in to the 10 role regained our shape and control of the game.

5.) 25 Nov 2020 08:21:56

You know the level of opposition, they have 35yr old Ba up front, never played in the CL before and still they caused us a lot of problems. At least admit that. Yes great to sit top, let’s hope we can get through and even stay top.

6.) 25 Nov 2020 08:37:36
They are Turkish champions but not the best team . That seems to be the main point you want to get a cross this morning .

7.) 25 Nov 2020 09:04:25
I usually resever my comments for 24 hours later these days save a reaction from myself lol. Great performance, donny thru to the front 3 all excellent, shaky at the back at times but I'd trade a DM for winning games 3-1 than 1-0' s either way. Is a tough group, need a point out of the last 2 games now if that.

8.) 25 Nov 2020 09:34:21
I'm still not sure about qualifying. Before the tourney started, I'd have bitten your hand off to be in this position. I just have a horrible feeling the result in Turkey will come back to bite us.

9.) 25 Nov 2020 10:02:45
I think your right, tough group and before hand i think everyone would of liked to have been in this position .
That said we still have 2 tough games left to play.

10.) 25 Nov 2020 10:02:55

No the main point was the difference in intent between the two halves but happy to win.



28 Oct 2020 22:24:45
At the start of the season it was pretty obvious that due to c. v, only 1 friendly next to no preseason we where under cooked.
Our first few games almost looked like preseason friendlies and we lost 2 games in the league, our first 2 since February.
But since the International break we have continued to Improve.
Defence has took a lot of stick and as a team at the start of the season we where all over the place but against Newcastle, psg, Chelsea and Rb we have conceded 2 goals. Both own goals .
Defence was far better last season than people gave them credit for to be honest.
Work on the training pitch there.
Ole rotated the squad tonight and that's a proper performance from front to back .
We have great options up top, greenwood had a quiet game still finding his feet but that really is a special finish .
Martial looks sharp so does cavani what can you say about rashford .
Before his injury rash for me was outstanding its took him a while to get back but he looks on his way now.
Young lad special talent can you imagine if mbappe had done that tonight .
Our midfield options look great so many different options.
We continue to improve, continue to move in the right direction . Maybe things aren't as bad as some would make out?


1.) 28 Oct 2020 23:20:02
Thats a good post jred.
Our 2 best performances have been in Europe.
Both with different systems and personelle. We out fought and out thought both teams and impact from bench in both games was great.
The common theme in both performances was playing 2 up top.
We have not seen that in the league in any of the 5 matches.
We have 4 strikers and no natural wingers in the squad bar james who usually plays on his weaker side.
2 up makes sense with either a diamond or 3 at the back.
Thoroughly agree on Rashford he is just a super guy. His attitude will continue to be and has always been top notch. Its what stylus him apart from many others. Giving that pen to martial was a unique gesture and made getting his own hat trick even more special.
Ole much like last week got every decision right during the game.
We now need to take that form and in game managment into the league
We need to be more aggressive and positive imo.
To me a positive aggressive attacking mindset with a cohesive team all on the 1 page is what Manchester United is all about. A Manchester united team to me should always set out to win the battle 1st in terms of effort commitment and togetherness before they earn the right to win the game. I have felt that ole has abandoned many of the principles and expectations i have for any united manager in that regard.
Tonight all of that was there and i was a proud supporter tonight. Not only becuase of the 5 goals but because that was a team performance all on same page from all who played right through to the manager.
The league season has started poorly perhaps in part down to fitness and perhaps due to the feeling of what could have been from last season and the hangover from that the end of last season was a damp squib.
3 very good additions to the squad plus axel opens up options.
The squad is there imo. The positive mindset and winning demands and intent must come from the manager and flow through his team.
There is no reason why we can't play as structured and as positively and aggressively as we did tonight every week and in every game. We might not score 5 or even win but that's ok when as a supporter you can walk away knowing we gave it everything.
My wish for the rest of the season is more of the same and to play 2 up top.

2.) 28 Oct 2020 23:33:21
I'm very happy with that win. But I wouldn't say we are back. I'll take a bit more time before I make a final judgement. The next ten games will tell a lot.

3.) 28 Oct 2020 23:39:02
We have been playing well and improving for a while now. It takes time.

4.) 29 Oct 2020 00:36:25
In fairness to ole ken I’ve always thought that he’s got the core principles right. From in minute he got here he talked about the players upping the work rate.

We need to build on this. That’s the standard now. Players like pogba can’t dip below that now. We know they can do it- time to become consistent.

5.) 29 Oct 2020 06:23:23
Ken, I think its a great way to setup with 2 up front, since we don't have traditional wingers.

There is no drop off in quality from bench these days.

Also, we were under-prepared at the start of the season. 4 of the signings were on deadline day.
Now the energy and intensity is up by a mile.
We are closing down opponents much quickly and sharply.

6.) 29 Oct 2020 07:37:09
Bl00dy h3ll! What a result!

Just imagine how good this team could be when we finally get a real manager, and not a PE teacher.

7.) 29 Oct 2020 07:39:27
I think Ole needs to show more aggressive positive intent on Sunday, no more of the Chelsea don’t lose attitude. The first goal is often key, as it was last night, because unless there is a quick equaliser the opposition have to push their line forward and we saw what happened when RBL did that.

8.) 29 Oct 2020 08:12:03
Good post jred.

We actually played well against a good psg side and should of really got something out the game . It wasn't a bad performance
Of course everything other than a chance to have a dig at the manager will be ignored .
We lost a game, ole took a chance and left Fred on . Should of probably took him off . Martial scores etc its a different game, psg get a second when a goal up again its a different game .
Bit of luck about every goal
Thats football, mountain out of a mole hill, site is always a good laugh when we drop points regardless of the circumstances, some comedy gold above .

Not seen many post saying ole should of 100% left Fred on infact its the opposite, but people get upset if someone doesn't just point out the negative .
Hindsight is a wonderful thing .
But at least the site is busy.
