Ed002, good afternoon.
Lots of reports today linking madrid and juve with player plus cash offers for pogba.
The players mentioned in part exchange groom juve are emre can or Raibot.
From madrid kroos.
Do you think any of those 3 players would want to join and of the 3 which player would suit best for United long term if a deal could be done?
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - They have plenty of players they could include as part of the deal. It is perhaps no more than the batch picked today.}


1.) 04 Jan 2020 16:51:26
Adrien Rabiot could be a good signing. Good defensive instincts and work ethic with an expansive passing range, mobile and young enough to grow into the team.

Can I'm not a fan of, too inconsistent. While Kroos is getting on a bit and I wonder if he would have the appetite for the EPL now. Fast physical league when he's in this thirties and was never the quickest or most mobile.

Although not mentioned the other player from Juventus I personally would consider would be Bernardeschi. Excellent on the RW, creative, hard working and flexible enough to play RW, CAM, LW, RWB or LWB.

I would happily take Rabiot and Bernardeschi in a straight swap for Pogba.

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance.}


2.) 04 Jan 2020 17:52:40
Good. I don't tate Rabiot. Not wanted by PSG or Juve should tell you he should not be wanted by Utd.


3.) 04 Jan 2020 22:42:27
Salford, he was wanted by PSG. He ran his contact down and left on a free last summer.


4.) 04 Jan 2020 23:57:42
they fell out with his mother that says enough.


5.) 05 Jan 2020 09:17:45
And PSG and Juve are much better than we are.


6.) 05 Jan 2020 10:08:25
We do have form for taking difficult to handle highly talented Frenchmen and getting them to perform.


7.) 05 Jan 2020 10:22:31
Like William prunier?


8.) 05 Jan 2020 12:35:58
Wernt we linked with rabiot when he signed for juve in the summer? Wasn't he a free aswell? I can't see either wanting to join us in our current state, the club seems to have no direction do they.

{Ed002's Note - No, there was no interest shown by Manchester United in the summer - pleanty of clubs, but not MU.}


 

 

28 Nov 2019 19:36:33
Hi ed002. If the offer does come in from madrid or juve for pogba do you know which players they will try to involve in part exchange? I know you have said that the club tend to about this type of deal.
Why do you think a move for haaland would not be good at this time?
I know little of him to be honest. He appears to be doing very well in a weak league but also in the cl.
Finally if both matic and pobga leave in jan do you know uf the c lub plan to replace them in jan or wait until the summer?
Thanks for your time.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Juventus will look to offer Emre Can, Mario Mandzukic and cash for Pogba and Chong. Real Madrid will offer a pick from any of their outbound players including Isco (AM), James (AM/RW), Toni Kroos (CM), Gareth Bale (RW/F), Mariano Diaz (S) or Isco (AM).}


1.) 28 Nov 2019 21:39:27
With all due respect. United should just take the money because the players on offer ain't worth it in my humble opinion. Secondly the only way to entice them to come to United is to offer them silly wages. Because right now we can't offer them the prestigious champions league football which they crave.


2.) 28 Nov 2019 20:53:15
See what ya did there Ed 002. Isco is coming to united in January boys and girls 😂😂😂.


3.) 28 Nov 2019 23:39:52
Depends what the money on offer is.


4.) 29 Nov 2019 00:41:29
I'll have 2 Isco's, please!


5.) 29 Nov 2019 09:33:48
3 years ago, I was a huge fan of Kroos. Makes passing look easy.
Set piece specialist on which our tall players like Maguire, Lindelof would thrive.

If he is still close to that level, McTominay and Kroos will be decent duo. McT's industriousness can complement Kroos's technical ability.


6.) 29 Nov 2019 10:18:05
Whilst I get there has been massive inflationary pressures on transfer prices over the last few years, has PP done anything to warrant the huge windfall your expecting .

Poor workrate and attitude sprinkled with a bit of flair (on the pitch and hair salon) and a load of flashy penalties.

Can't help but think the big clubs will look at his time with MUFC and price him accordingly, if you got offered what you paid for him you should bite their hands off just to be shut of him.


7.) 29 Nov 2019 11:22:27
Idontlooklikeklopp, I think your right. We are expecting a fee close to 150m, but what has he done to deserve that fee?

He isn't a young kid with potential, he is peaking as a player and he is peaking well below where most people thought he would.

I think we will be lucky to get 100m for him. There just isn't the interest in him to drive that up.

Its arugable that his stock was higher when we signed him than now.


8.) 29 Nov 2019 11:45:48
Agreed shappy, if Madison (many posters on here's wet dream) is worth the 80 mill you all seem to think, how is PP worth more.

Madison's English, younger, works harder, talented and seems a really good guy (see the articles regarding the poor young lass that died, and his brutal putdown of the sun comic) .

Bet Leicester wouldn't do a swap.


9.) 29 Nov 2019 11:51:41
Per Ed002, some significant investments could be made in January.
Excited that the squad will strenghten, just hope we get the right players in.


10.) 29 Nov 2019 11:54:58
Would take Isco and Bale and 700m tbh. Bales still a good player. Isco in Pogbas position. Then use the 700m to buy another few cms.


11.) 29 Nov 2019 15:36:17
Honestly I don't think I would take any of the mentioned players.


12.) 29 Nov 2019 23:45:43
I'd agree mort, wouldn't really want any of them. But that said, Isco and Kroos in front of mctominay would be an absolutely huge improvement on what we have, and given we have a pretty strong front 3, we'd probably be pretty good like that.


13.) 30 Nov 2019 11:24:40
Most of the players on that list are a big jump In class over what we have here.


14.) 30 Nov 2019 12:54:39
And most of them like isco or kroos wouldn't want to come here. Kroos would struggle in this league, he makes Fred look like billy whizz. The rest either aren't good enough or injury prone.


15.) 30 Nov 2019 23:27:56
Let's be realistic. No top top player from one of the premier European teams who might be challenging for champions league places or titles in their current county are going to want to come to us unless they are on not playing regularly or are on the decline.


16.) 01 Dec 2019 20:09:35
People saying they wouldn’t take any of the players on offer even though they are all better than what we have. Who exactly do you want?


17.) 02 Dec 2019 17:35:27
GDS

I would prefer we sign younger up and coming players with an age profile below say 25. I think they will fit better into this squad and can gel into becoming the next great team.

Not sure adding isco or kroos really fits well.


 

 

22 Nov 2019 22:25:00
Hi ed002 when you say he will have an option to leave in January do you mean a club will make a bid?

ken

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Ken. I thought it was pretty clear.}


1.) 23 Nov 2019 04:13:54
Hope we have a replacement lined up Ed.
There were strong rumors about SMS towards the end of previous window.


2.) 23 Nov 2019 07:51:13
Guessing you’re talking about Pogba? Sorry, some thread/ ed2 comments maybe missing.


 

 

12 Nov 2019 19:51:57
Reports today that chong had turned down a contract and told the club he will be leaving in June.
If true its disappointing. Although he has not shown a great deal So far he has always been touted as a top talent.

ken

1.) 12 Nov 2019 21:38:05
Dont blame him to be honest, if he can't get a kick with the paucity of options we have at right wing at the moment, then he will never get his chance when/ if the area is addressed in the transfer market.


2.) 13 Nov 2019 06:11:30
Yes DSG.
I haven't seen anything extra-ordinary from him.
No electric pace like DJ to play on the wing.
But he has some skills in his locker although that's not enough to make it at top level.


3.) 13 Nov 2019 16:57:47
Ive they to see him do anything to make me take notice. Gomes had some nice touches, Garner can find a pass, Greenwood is scoring, obviously Williams has been a revelation, but Chong has been forgettable every time I’ve seen him. They can’t all make it.


4.) 13 Nov 2019 18:25:43
To be honest I thought he looked better on the left than he has on the right. Which is a problem as we have Rashford, James and even Martial all comfortable from the left. He won't be getting minutes ahead of them.

I think he is a talent, but he needs a loan and to play regularly at a higher level than he has to kick on. He could be a great player, but he is one who needs a loan.

However, I can't see the club sending him out on loan without a new contract signed. They wouldn't agree Dean Henderson's loan until he renewed.


5.) 13 Nov 2019 22:56:31
him and gomes both look like if they played at stokes ground on a windy night they would blow over. they need a loan out in the championship for a season to toughen them up.


6.) 14 Nov 2019 09:49:50
Loll Dazzzz.


 

 

30 Oct 2019 22:29:13
Ed002. January is usually a difficult window to try and buy players especially those who are regular starters for their clubs.
Do you think that united will try to buy in Jan? and do you know what positions are seen as priority right now by the club?
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - January is indeed not the best time to be buying but I expect MU will look to a DM player and then it will depend if anyone leaves. If they can also find a suitable S then that will also be a priority in January.}


1.) 31 Oct 2019 13:28:02
Based on what we've seen I'm expecting Mandzukic and either Eric Dier or Kalvin Phillips.


2.) 31 Oct 2019 15:11:48
I'd still love to see us go for Werner as a forward option. Ed002, do you happen to know whether this defensive midfield player is to replace Matic?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United would be happy if Nemanja Matic were to leave in January and then they could look to a replacement - would be a significant kick in the gonads for those who have been playing, but MU is not a club that cares for their players any longer. If they over price NM they need not worry about it.
}


3.) 31 Oct 2019 16:30:49
Ed002 Thanks.
I would agree that a dm is a priority.


4.) 31 Oct 2019 19:17:51
Players don't care about the club and are transient by nature.

But I'd say the club cares about certain players.


5.) 31 Oct 2019 19:47:47
Ed002. If Matic leaves, a new DM would become a necessity. McT and Fred are doing very well but there s no backup for them except for Garner who is still a bit raw.
I don't think it s a case of caring or not for their players.

{Ed002's Note - How many DM players does the club need then?}


6.) 01 Nov 2019 15:22:21
Ed002 considering Ole s preferred formation is 4-2-3-1 which involves a double pivot, we need a backup for those 2 (Mc T and Fred) - Matic being the only current senior backup player. Hence I think we need at least 1 other player who plays in. that position considering we re playing twice a week and also the intensity.


7.) 02 Nov 2019 10:14:08
People have different ideas about what a DM actually is because there are different interpretations of the role to suit different tactics.

We have McTominay and Fred who are more box to box players who work hard defensively rather than holding midfielders who will sit, shield the defence and recycle the ball and try and launch attacks from deep.

Garner may develop into that sort of player, yet he has really flourish this season in the under 23's in a more box to box role which has seen him grab some important goals.

Matic was the kind of player we are lacking in the first team but his legs appear to have gone. He is still good at recycling the ball, but he lacks the ability to cover the defence due to his poor mobility and lack of pace.

So quite simply we are looking to replace Matic who appears to be finished at the top level in the EPL with someone younger and more mobile. Someone who can shield the defence better while also having the ability to hit quick accurate passes to break the lines quickly and launch counter attacks.

Ole keeps saying during interviews that he wants our players to play forward passes quicker.

So someone in that area of the pitch who can hit those passes is what we need.


8.) 05 Nov 2019 12:38:48
More of a deep lying playmaker or to go hipster a regista rather than a ball winning destroyer.

11 points worse off than we were this time last season. 150 million spent. Ole got rid of some of the players most supporters wanted out.
People keep saying no other manager could do better. That's complete bolloxology.
He took over a team that had been 2nd the season before.
Had been in 4 cup finals in 3 seasons winning 3 of them. (We will exclude the community shield. )
Ole is a fraud
The worst manager we have had since the early 70s.
His football is negative
His demeanour is negative
His statements are negative along with his thought process
He is not a good coach
His coaching team are useless
He is useless.
Ive never wanted a manager or coach to leave our club so desperately. He is bringing us back 30 years.
There are 100s of coaches that could have us 10 to 12 pints better off this season with this very squad.
Totally useless football manager. I don't care that he was an ex player that reputation will never diminish.
Get him out of our club now he doesn't fit he isn't good enough and needs to be fired from his job without delay.
Pathetic excuse of a manager. A rabbit I the headlights floundering around like a fish out if water.
Normally when something walks like a duck looks like a duck sounds like a duck and smells like a duck . surprise surprise its usually a duck.
Get rid of the duck lads speciall goal in 99 or not he has to go before he does any more damage.

ken

1.) 23 Jan 2020 11:23:01
I saw some positives last night. We had them on the ropes for a good spell. If we could of nicked a goal or 2 it wouldn't have been so bad. You've got to admire the team selection any tactics at least, we were just unlucky I think. You've hot to remember that it was a tough game against a tough, well drilled team who set up with the low block and clearly didn't play to win like we did.

Just getting it in there before someone else Haha.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 11:47:52
Ken, I agree. Ole needs to go. However, a plan needs to be at least formulated before he is removed.

There is a huge difference between hiring someone because they are available and hiring the right person. Pochettino might be the right man, or he might not. Blanc might be the right man, or he might not, Allegri might be the right man, or he might not. Or maybe the right man has a job and is in the middle of achieving something this season. I really like what Marco Rose is doing at Borussia Monchengladbach. I think he will be a top manager. Then there is Julian Nargelsmann at RB Leipzig. Young managers, innovating tactics and leading the way into the next era of football.

Who is the right man, who has the right fit, the right plan and the ability to see it through.

Until the club knows who that is and when they can get them in then what is to be gained from sacking Ole?

If the club needs a temporary manager until the end of the season who does the club turn to? Carrick, McKenna or Phelan? Most people blame them as much as Ole for our current situation on the pitch.

So someone from outside, how long will it take them to settle? How well do they know the club?

Our squad I think is much poorer than we really understand. We are struggling in a poor league. Pogba, Matic and Lingard want to leave. While most won't be too upset by them leaving they will leave a hole that needs to be filled behind them. Just as most weren't to upset to see the back of Fellaini, Lukaku and Herrera (Herrera might be an exception), however, the hole they left behind was not filled.

If Matic and Pogba leave then we have only two experienced midfielders left in the squad. Meaning we would need to sign at least two midfielders probably three.

As a club we have fallen into the trap Arsenal had before us. Owners with little ambition to aim for the top and happy as long as the money keeps coming in. For that to happen the club only needs to be in the UCL. So forth becomes the target. However, when you lower your sights then failure to reach your target looks significantly worse. If you aim to win the league and finish 3rd four or five points off of top spot then its not the end of the world, you competed and fell just a little short. If you aim for 4th and finish 7th four or five points off of 4th spot, but 25 behind the league winners then things start to look cataclysmic.

For this reason I feel thing will get worse before they get better no matter who is manager.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs have been poor this year, all of them will spend at least 100m in the summer. Liverpool and City will do likewise, in fact I wouldn't be surprised to see City spend close to 200m. Wolves and Leicester will also likely spend 60-100m each.

If we are to improve more than these sides we will likely need to outspend them, and spend wisely. We need at least 2 probably 3 midfielders. We need at least 2 forwards, one who plays from the right hand side and a striker who can offer us a different option. We might need a CB and possibly a LB if we can offload Shaw who it is becoming clear will never even come close to reaching his potential. That's at least 5, maybe 7 new players. And if we do that we won't have a great squad, just a good first team with adequate cover. When 50m buys you Fred, 5 players is at least 250m, probably closer to 300m. Can you see that happening?

I expect maybe 3 players in the summer, 4 at most. Will that be enough to close the gap? Probably not. Then where are we?


3.) 23 Jan 2020 11:58:55
Second the season before, true. But with Fellaini, Herrera, Lukaku, Valencia, and an onside Pogba (at the time) .

Can you not see the difference between the two Midfields alone. Pogba, Matic and Herrera vs Fred, Matic (in further decline) and Perreira.

I'm not saying Solskjaer is perfect but we can only play one way because of the players we have. What team would you put out against Burnley yesterday?


4.) 23 Jan 2020 12:17:38
Shappy.
Ole has to go and go now him being here is making things worse.


5.) 23 Jan 2020 12:41:06
“So someone from outside, how long will it take them to settle? How well do they know the club? ”

How well does the club know itself?

For me one of the biggest issues is that it’s purported identity is still rooted in the Fergie era, in fact a very specific period of the Fergie era - mid 90s - 00s. We keep hearing people harking back to the class of 92 and the type of squad/ football we played then. But football has moved on.

A few weeks back Ole was banging on about City not playing proper football. The fact of the matter is that we’re still trying to play 90s style football in 2020 league. We have become fixated on reviving the past rather than building for the future. Ole is the rock bottom of this approach.

The club board needs to be shaken up. Fergie needs to be removed like he should have been after he retired, and talent, skills and expertise have to be sought across coaching, recruitment and the board itself.

In my opinion, we need to give control to someone outside the club because those within have become specialists in mediocrity. We need a wholesale restructuring driven by those from the outside, and only that will start to change things.


6.) 23 Jan 2020 12:48:44
How many times, Ole is taking the club downwards below anything Moyes, LvG or Mourinho did. Every day longer is damaging. He has to go and I cannot believe he survives after today, it is untenable. The only thing holding back is the utterly ridiculous sentimental tosh about him as a player. We are a laughing stock, everyone can see the problem but emotion is holding us back.


7.) 23 Jan 2020 12:50:27
Okay then Ken, but who gets the job?

Pochettino needs a good structure behind him, he is more of a first team coach than a manager.

Allegri has never managed outside of Italy, hardly speaks the language and plays a defensive style of football that the fans rejected under LvG and Jose.

Blanc hasn't managed a side in 3 years.

So who gets the job?

{Ed047's Note - big Sam? 😉


8.) 23 Jan 2020 13:14:30
Spot on Danny. Been saying this for ages - instead of building for the future we are trying to emulate the past. And it will not work, end of.
Maybe the best thing that Ole could buy is not a shiny new player, but a shiny silver DMC DeLorian.

And a flux capacitor.


9.) 23 Jan 2020 13:25:29
Danny, I completely agree. We need a DoF with experience of working with a top European side.

City credit to them got a couple of guys from Barcelona and gave them the platform to make the changes they felt the club needed to become a top side like Barcelona.

However, if you are looking at a short term manager coming in for 3-4 months to save the season they need to hit the ground running. Therefore, having some experience of the club will make that easier.

If we bring in a temporary manager who takes a 4-6 weeks to acclimatise to the club then half of his time at the club has been wasted. That could be the difference of that manager achieving top four or not.


10.) 23 Jan 2020 13:29:49
Great scott Betty, that just might work!


11.) 23 Jan 2020 12:45:19
So, is Solskjaer the rabbit, the fish or the duck? I’m lost.


12.) 23 Jan 2020 14:06:38
Ole is not good enough I agree but another manager will come in do well initially and then also fail.

I've heard rumours that Poch has been sounded out about the job but has been told he won't have a director of football plus he won't have control of the transfers. Now if any of that is true if I was him I'd refuse the job if it was offered to me. If that is the way it works then no manager will do well here over a period of time. Ole's coaching though is poor plus his decision making is awful aswell as the small club mentality he gives off in his interviews.

Another question I ask is we put a briefing out about 18 months ago saying we were looking for a director of football. You mean to tell me it takes that long to find someone and counting? As it is Ed Woodward has free reign of the club and he's the Glazers boy. If we employ a director it will be someone who has no experience in the role a former player just to be another puppet they might have the title as director but they won't be one as Ed Woodward is in control and that's how it's going to stay. I'm not convinced there's even funds available for players either. Why are we scratching around for a midfielder on loan? We need a player in permanently. Ole should resign before things turn sour. He looked an absolute beaten man in his interview and as if he was going to cry last night. Really sad to see but better to walk away with his head held high. he's not good enough and none of him and the coaches are we like carrick because he's an ex player but he has no experience and neither does mckenna. We might like them all but doesn't mean it will work.

Stadium emptying and all the players wanting to leave you would have to say this is the most worrying time since Fergie. We might be 5th in the league which is no grand achievement anyway but we are only there because everyone else is rubbish and wolves, spurs will overtake us definitely and maybe even arsenal will aswell if we don't sign anyone. Chelsea are 6 points above us and they've been crap. Massive changes needed and in the next 8 days we need to do it or the season will be our worst in the history of the premier league.


13.) 23 Jan 2020 17:40:38
I was desperate for my coach to leave last night ken. I was 10-12 pints better off than i am now that's for sure 😉.


 

 

23 Jan 2020 09:52:44
Ed001
In your opinion do you think ole is a dead man walking?
Do you think steps are underway to replace him in the summer or so you think they will stick with him come hell or high water?
Ed002 has told us there is a reluctance to fire him from some within the club.
Just wondering what you think.

ken

{Ed001's Note - they don't want to sack him, but if gates continue to suffer they will do. That is what will decide his fate.}


1.) 23 Jan 2020 10:59:33
Why are they so reluctant though? What have they seen that makes them think we are on the right path? Staggering levels of ineptitude from us.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 11:10:15
It's like they want the club to fail.

If they really want to succeed they'd have hired a DoF by now and started running the club properly.

New managers every few years isn't going to fix anything.


3.) 23 Jan 2020 11:11:42
Let's hope the fans start voting with their feet.
I can understand fans not wanting to boo and humiliate ole nobody wants to see him suffer but silent protests like last night leaving early or just not attending will hopefully have the desired affect.


4.) 23 Jan 2020 11:02:54
Ed001, why do you think that the board wants to keep Ole in the job?

From the outside he looks like a drowning man with no ideas and no plan to turn things around. Do they actually believe he can succeed, or is it something else?

{Ed001's Note - because a large proportion of the fans love him, Ferguson and the media love him and he doesn't cause problems trying to get what he wants.}


5.) 23 Jan 2020 11:17:16
Ken. I feel if we don't add atleast 2 players in this window, the season will end in a disaster.
Injuries to Rash and McT is a severe dent to our squad.

There is serious lack of quality, creativity and goals in this team.

Yesterday in the second half especially, we never ever looked like scoring.
Ole will soon face the sack.
Lots of fans started leaving at about 70th minute onwards.
I don't remember the last time when fans at Old Trafford were leaving in huge numbers.


6.) 23 Jan 2020 11:21:20
Weggy city have won the league under 3 different managers in 6 years.


7.) 23 Jan 2020 11:26:59
ed01, could not agree more, 'he doesn't cause problems trying to get what he wants'. Therefore he or any other manager cannot succeed until the manager (who ever that will be) is allowed to create in their own way.

Only a few days ago Ole said no one to leave, as we need all available players, then the club allow Young to leave!

Until the money stps rolling in I fear nothing will change apart from a manger or two.

{Ed001's Note - I can't see it being much longer until their hand is forced.}


8.) 23 Jan 2020 11:38:39
ed001 hit the nail on the head as to why they don't want to sack ole "he doesn't cause problems trying to get what he wants". If ole doesn't highlight the failures of those above him, then the fans have to make it perfectly clear. The only way we see change is if the club is no longer an attractive brand for businesses which in turn will lose the glazers millions in revenue.

Everytime I switch on sky or go on phone it's a new low time after time not only are we not gonae get fernandes by the looks of it we have been knocked back for a loan deal. off inter for some average midfielder we just done deals for 3 players and they have refused Wow and now talk of Tevez coming back lol this is a total shambles.

Until the gates suffer. That says it all the club do not give a flying crap what performances on the pitch are like as long as the money keeps rolling in.

So basically he’s a yes man?


12.) 23 Jan 2020 13:52:09
He’s a yes man because of his lack of qualifications for the job.

In December 2018 he was managing in the Norwegian league having failed at Cardiff. He isn’t in the job on merit or ability, so his position is weak. Jose got the chop, in part, because he criticised our recruitment. Ole knows that his position is far weaker, so toes the company line to save his job.

11 points worse off than we were this time last season. 150 million spent. Ole got rid of some of the players most supporters wanted out.
People keep saying no other manager could do better. That's complete bolloxology.
He took over a team that had been 2nd the season before.
Had been in 4 cup finals in 3 seasons winning 3 of them. (We will exclude the community shield. )
Ole is a fraud
The worst manager we have had since the early 70s.
His football is negative
His demeanour is negative
His statements are negative along with his thought process
He is not a good coach
His coaching team are useless
He is useless.
Ive never wanted a manager or coach to leave our club so desperately. He is bringing us back 30 years.
There are 100s of coaches that could have us 10 to 12 pints better off this season with this very squad.
Totally useless football manager. I don't care that he was an ex player that reputation will never diminish.
Get him out of our club now he doesn't fit he isn't good enough and needs to be fired from his job without delay.
Pathetic excuse of a manager. A rabbit I the headlights floundering around like a fish out if water.
Normally when something walks like a duck looks like a duck sounds like a duck and smells like a duck . surprise surprise its usually a duck.
Get rid of the duck lads speciall goal in 99 or not he has to go before he does any more damage.

What happened between 8:17 and 9:13 Ken. Assume this is the hour you rewatched the pathetic game last night.
That said I am also at the point where my positivity is gone, the improvements in areas are out done by the negatives and real belief that this is it with our management team.
Long conversation with my father last night who said we should move for Pochatino and if he won't take it now commit to him for next season and wait like City did.
If we buy then look at players that fit him but can help now. If none available stay as we are.
Be transparent in what we are doing. Who is the right director of football and he wants the RB Leipzig chap who has worked with Pochatino before.
We don't always agree on football but can't argue with him on this.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 10:11:43
Ken. Nothing will happen no need to get frustrated.

OLE will still be here.

It will be 2021 soon and we will still have no director of football.

Maguire will still be captaining United for next 10 years.

Nothing will change.


3.) 23 Jan 2020 10:12:50
brad if we were serious in getting a dof we would have one by now.

the people in charge are as clueless as ole.

remember the "we are going to conduct a proper search for the next manager"


its all BS.


4.) 23 Jan 2020 10:14:51
Touch sarcastic at 8.17 brad and had a coffee and was really awake by the time i posted above😂
Not all all surprised by the result last night. We are so boring to watch its not funny.
Im using united matches to punish my kids. if they are bold they have to watch the matches twice😂 i'm afraid they will report me to child line🤗.


5.) 23 Jan 2020 10:15:45
Spot on Ken. The worst narrative is no other manager could do better. Absolute bollocks.


6.) 23 Jan 2020 10:56:28
Ken I wish I was 10 -12 pints better off last night when watching that drivel.
In all seriousness though, I felt like last night was a new low point for this club. The empty seats spoke volumes and everyone at the club from the Glazers down should be appalled.
Ole is so far out of his depth it’s unreal. The squad is so so poor and my worry is the players like Greenwood, Williams and Wan Bissaka will eventually fall into the same mindset as the rest. There is zero confidence in the squad and the best we can hope for is scrapping into the Europa league places again.
There is a big grey cloud hanging over this football club and I honestly don’t think it’ll change any time soon.

Hi all.
Let's start the day with a bit of positivity.
We are only 6 points off a cl place and we are still 3 points ahead of southamton.
We are still in 3 cups too.

1.) 23 Jan 2020 08:42:03
Ole's wheels lack an engine, till we get one; all those positives will fade away.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 08:47:04
another piece of positivity. the season ends in May so only 3.5 months to go lol.


3.) 23 Jan 2020 09:09:10
The engine is running out of legs, 2 more have disappeared (Young) and still no extra spare parts!

Plus too many important parts in the garage, for the engine to cope with.

Ed001, good morning mate hope all is well with you.
Do you know anything about jude bellingham.?
What sort of player is he and where do his strengths lie.
At least with you, ill get a straight answer instead of pretending to know what your talking about if you dont.
Cheers pal.
K.

ken

{Ed001's Note - I don't know much about him to be honest. I hear a lot of good stuff about him, but I have never seen him play. I can say that Liverpool and Man Utd are just two of many that would love to sign him. There is interest in him from all over Europe in fact. However I can't tell you much about the player, other than what others have said. Sorry!}


1.) 22 Jan 2020 11:38:32
You have to start somewhere, DLIB. Champions League is better than not, just as winning the league is better than not. Infinitely more attractive to ambitious players if we have that to play for.


2.) 22 Jan 2020 11:42:37
Sorry replied on the wrong post.


3.) 22 Jan 2020 11:50:30
I agree with you dlib to an extent.
I don't believe if we finish 4th all Will be good again.
However i do believe finishing 4th will help accelerate and give our journey some impetuous back towards the top table.
Of course united is still a top club with considerable pulling power.
But unless we have a coach and project that entices and captures the imagination of players and agents then we will not be able to secure the best talent or indeed keep some of the talent we have.


4.) 22 Jan 2020 11:23:39
Cheers Tris.
Ive not seen much of him myself. I suspect most have never seen him play but wax lyrical about him without knowing the facts.
Thanks anyway.

{Ed001's Note - he certainly has an excellent reputation. Sorry I can't help.}

I expect bruno to come in but maybe we will sit tight and wait for a new coach.
I think if you have ole the Liverpool squad or city squad he would struggle to make top 4 either way.

I'm in the wait and see camp. i'd they come they come if they don't they don't i'm not too bothered about signings this window.
We will have a few ups but likely more downs between now and the end of the season.

Get it right on the pitch and everything else will imorove.
The team can and should be doing better.
Once that improves you won't give a rats arse who is doing what in the boardroom.
