Heard Martial may miss tonight's match, can anyone shed some light on this?


1.) 04 Dec 2019 11:28:26
Based on Sunday will we even notice?

2.) 04 Dec 2019 13:26:38
He has a knock from Saturday.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 13:26:57
Sunday sorry*.

4.) 04 Dec 2019 15:38:44
Beginning to think we may aswell move Martial on, the guy is hardly ever fit.

{Ed047's Note - and in honesty not all that, if you were watching him play for someone else would you even be slightly interested Welsh?

5.) 04 Dec 2019 16:33:55
Clear to anyone who watches him, very talented and vey lazy to go with it. Seeen it for 5 years now and it's boring and annoying watching him waltz about up front. Great finisher but can't be arsed putting in the effort to make himself or us great.

6.) 04 Dec 2019 16:20:24
Jesus 047 your going to knock the stuffing out of any positive πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ i tend to agree people used to tell me him and shaw were going to be world class.

{Ed047's Note - sorry ken I just watch him and think wtf is all the hype about.

And don’t get me started on the porker!πŸ˜‚

7.) 04 Dec 2019 17:00:39
Do tell Ken, what posters? πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚.

8.) 04 Dec 2019 17:13:37
Funny to think that the club has spent 80m+ on Shaw and Martial, yet can anyone say they will be better players for us than Williams and Rashford will be?

Martial has loads of talent, yet for some reason he doesn't quite make the most of it. Is it because of the injuries, is it because he doesn't work hard enough, or is it the lack of quality passes coming from midfield for him to run on to?

I know he doesn't make the most runs, but how often do you see a genuinely great ball wizz past him while he isn't making the run?

9.) 04 Dec 2019 19:54:45
Yeah Shaw is another one ken, injury prone, soft and lazy. ED47 spot on.
He went off with a bang to the nose in one game and actually missed to next game!

10.) 04 Dec 2019 22:12:25
Shaw does not have the mentality to be an elite athlete. Wasted talent - move him on.

11.) 08 Dec 2019 10:37:45
I agree about shaw and martail but both played really well last night.



02 Jul 2019 15:35:24
Rumour has it that Vidic has been offered to coach our mufc B (U23s) . That's according to Vojvodina coach Lalatovic . He is yet to decide.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 18:49:20
Getting him ready for when Ole gets the boot.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 19:58:14
Wow, unbelievable Rock
the red.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 22:25:53
Haha mad

I'm just going on how woody sacks managers. he his a little trigger happy don't ya think.

4.) 03 Jul 2019 13:36:43
Don't suppose we could coax him back into playing. Rather have Vidic back even now than spend 70m on Maguire.



26 Jun 2019 12:11:10
BBC's David Ornstein reporting we have reached an agreement with Palace to sign AWB .


{Ed002's Note - Shows what cheapskates the owners are - should have paid another Β£25M for him to keep the Toxics happy.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 12:24:42
Ignoring the toxic stuff because it bores me. Good signing, as Ed001 mentioned before AWB is one of the only fullbacks in the league who seems to know stopping the cross coming in is key.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 12:31:37
Love it 002!

Some opinions on here make me think everybody has financial freedom.

Anyway, hope this is true.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 12:33:12
Finally solved a problem out squad had for several years. No more Young at RB!

4.) 26 Jun 2019 13:12:34
Brilliant deal IMO especially if the rumours about the Zaha clause are true as well, now on to the next one hopefully.

5.) 26 Jun 2019 14:00:49
Great bit of business. Very good player. 2 really good signings. Investing in the future.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 14:04:27
Yeah, but ed. Its not the glazers personal cash so it doesn't count πŸ˜‚.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 15:50:46
Exciting stuff!
I echo Rosie’s words, I’m bored of the toxic nonsense. Does it even have to be mentioned? Quite frankly I find it offensive being constantly branded as a β€˜toxic fan’ so perhaps the Ed (s) can avoid being hypocrites and do us all a favour and just not reference the morons at all?

{Ed002's Note - There is no hypocracy.}

8.) 26 Jun 2019 17:06:38
Great signing if completed. Just shows the shift at the club that started last summer. People forget but the signings of Fred (didn't have an exceptional season but the right idea) and Dalot along with James this summer and AWB shows what direction the club is taking with its' signings. Young and ambitious players who want to play for the club. More of the same please. It's not July yet and already two exciting signings. A centre half and two central midfielders then we're laughing. The signings from the past 12 months shows that Ed isn't in charge of what players to get and long may it last πŸ™Œ.

9.) 26 Jun 2019 18:09:13
AWB was on a flight from Biggin hill to Manchester
Let's do medical sign him move on to next transfer.



24 Jun 2019 11:20:43
We seem to have signed a 16 year old mateo mejia from R. Zaragoza.


1.) 24 Jun 2019 13:45:36
According to his local newspaper Heraldo d’Aragon, he is apparently very quick, can play left or right wing, is known as β€œthe jewel of Zaragoza”, scored 53 goals in his last 29 games and cost us Β£600k.

2.) 24 Jun 2019 13:46:57
Must have been a Mourinho target.

3.) 24 Jun 2019 18:34:44
Rumours going around that lukaku may have had a change of heart. Possible he could stay after all.
If that is the case, then we are totally screwed.
Woodward does know how to screw things up big time.
Thought ole said we were getting rid of the deadwood.
Young, smalling, Jones, lukaku, lingard, Sanchez. All still getting paid by mufc. show some balls Ole, transfer the lot of them.

4.) 24 Jun 2019 19:18:44
He can’t if there’s no willing buyers.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 22:05:23
Lukaku might never hack it at top level club football but he is far from a deadwood player.

Perfectly adequate striker to get us back into the top 4 as he will get enough goals provided the chances.

If he goes, good we get a decent fee for him, if he stays, good we have a proven goalscorer at the club.

6.) 24 Jun 2019 22:28:45
If we keep Lukaku we are not "screwed". Our fans make me laugh sometimes. He’s a proven goal scorer and will finish as our top scorer if given the same minutes as our other forwards.

Thursday / Sunday for the season, we need depth and Lukaku is more than a good option with so many games to play.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 06:12:27
Some of our fans are a joke.
Right now, Lukaku is the best striker at the club.

8.) 25 Jun 2019 20:14:22
Zaragoza have come out to deny this. Any truth in the interest?



06 Jun 2019 10:07:53
Just read somewhere that PSG have made a Β£70 million bid for David de Gea and that DDG's agent Jorge Mendes will meet with PSG reps in Qatar later this week to negotiate a deal.


1.) 06 Jun 2019 10:38:54
We won't get anywhere near that amount for him.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 10:44:52
Just announced that buffon is leaving?

3.) 06 Jun 2019 11:02:55
70m sounds reasonable, better than letting him leave on a free next year.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 11:39:09
Romero for the year. See how he and Henderson (at Sheffield United) get on then decide next summer what to do. If neither are up to it then dip into the market for a goalkeeper who's good with the ball at their feet. Hopefully we won't need to buy one with them two. If Dave leaves then thanks for the great service. We'd be in an even worse position without you ❀.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 11:40:13
I'd snap their hands off at 70m. He is on a free next year and won't sign a new deal.

6.) 06 Jun 2019 12:10:52
agree with shappy snap there hands off for that amount,

we need to be making the defense a priority and we wouldn't need to rely on the keeper as much as we have done over the years.

7.) 06 Jun 2019 12:34:04
Anything over Β£50 million is good business. He might have twelve months to go but if PSG want him now then they'll have to reach a deal acceptable to us.

8.) 06 Jun 2019 17:07:46
Hazard Β£88million with a year left on his contract.

I'd hope to expect Β£60 million or around that figure.

9.) 06 Jun 2019 21:37:16
70 millions on De Gea is good pay out since they can use this money to get Oblak from AT Madrid.

A few seasons ago, majority of us here were using or reading the word 'toxics' on daily basis, now the new word seems to be 'amateurish'.
My question is if Utd choose to get rid of Ole now or before the season ends, will it be considered amateurish and forced by the toxics or will it be what the club needs?

Disclaimer-This post is not meant to slight any members or Eds.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 10:49:41
I think you’re conflating too things.

The word toxics primarily relates to calls for LVG to be sacked, thereby pushing the club to deviate from their plan to appoint Allegri at the end of LVG’s three years.

Amateur is used to describe United’s transfer strategy, particularly their belief that they can pressure β€˜smaller’ clubs into accepting lower offers for their players and generally not treating them with respect.

If Ole is sacked it will be because the club think that keeping him does not serve their longer term ambitions.

I would add that it was amateur behaviour to hire him in the first place. In Dec 2018 the club stated that they would be using the rest of the season to identify the right coaching team to take the club forward. Within two months they jettisoned this plan on the back of a run of good results. It’s not particularly professional to chop and change long term plans on the basis of short term success. Especially when you’re hiring a manager with no experience at the top level.

2.) 28 Jan 2020 12:35:56
I appreciate your reply Danny. But I know what those 2 words meant here. My question is based on the supposed stadium walk out plans looming; it has an air of toxicity. Thus will Ole's sack be given in to the toxics or rather an attempt at correcting the amateur appointment you referred to.

3.) 28 Jan 2020 13:29:12
The club are happy with Ole. He’s compliant and happy to toe the company line.

The walkouts are directed at the running of the club, rather than the manager like on previous occasions. When Ole is inevitably sacked it won’t be down to correcting the mistake, it will be an attempt to placate disgruntled fans. However, as the fans are unhappy with much more than Ole, it remains to be seen if this will stop the protests.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 13:55:42
Cheers Danny.
However here lies my confusion, are the disgruntled fans toxics in this case?

5.) 28 Jan 2020 14:16:44
I think the toxic label is what Ed002 meant in terms of fans disrupting the club’s long term plan when LVG was in charge.

I was a toxic at that time, and can see what Ed002 was getting at. The club had an actual long term plan in place but supporters’ demand for short term improvements on the pitch and put pressure on them to sack LVG before Allegri could come.

The key difference this time is that the club don’t have any real long term plan anymore. The club say that Ole is the long term plan. That he is the best person to bring the club forward. I’m not sure if it’s toxic to criticise the club for sticking with a manager so clearly out of his depth, or to question why the club is struggling to sign the right players.

6.) 28 Jan 2020 16:48:52
Bit clearer now Danny. Thanks for your insight.

02 Dec 2019 13:03:53
Ed 001, Shappy and the rest who were interested in a recent post about an outrageous youth team score line in italy. I just came across one in Holland where Ajax Under-12s took it to another level with 50-1 win over MVV on Saturday. They though kept their manager.


{Ed001's Note - that is ludicrous.}

1.) 02 Dec 2019 20:05:55
It's ridiculous and damaging to the young players careers.

Seriously they are supposed to be learning. What more can they learn from being 10-0? Every goal after that point is about humiliating children playing on the other side. Nothing to be gained, but so much that could be destroyed.

Having coached kids football I wouldn't have let any of the sides I coached do that. Had we got to a point where it was clear we were so far ahead of them it was just going to be a humiliation. I would have shook the other coaches hand and called an end to the game. If that wasn't possible I would have told my lads to play keep ball and would have offered them rewards for the most number of passes with reprimands for more goals scored. Something like extra minutes of free practice for passes, while extra running for goals scored.

You don't humiliate kids, that's just not sporting.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 23:37:17
You mean like all other teams are doing to United Shappy? πŸ˜ƒ.



08 Nov 2019 10:39:54
Ed 001, I am curious, has your opinion of Fred changed in anyway since he had a good run of games this past couple of months.
I used to bash him a lot but I must say he has improved IMO. Still nowhere near the 50mil we paid, but at least he doesn't need 4 touches to trap the ball anymore. ;)


{Ed001's Note - he has improved a lot but still not a Premier League level. Still can't control or pass the ball well.}

1.) 08 Nov 2019 11:59:42
Much improved, but still doesn't impose himself on a game enough for me. I feel he is more suited to European games where the pace is slightly slower and far less physical and frenetic. His best performances have come in the European games.

I think he can be a useful squad player for us, especially in the Europa league where we may want to rest a midfielder as we don't have much depth in midfield.

If he's worth 50m then McTominay must be worth at least 100m and Pogba close to 200m. Which they aren't.

2.) 08 Nov 2019 18:15:40
Thanks Ed and Shappy, echoed my thoughts.



30 Oct 2019 11:01:44
Chelsea seem to be on a decent streak, wouldn't it be just like us to halt that momentum? Utd DNA.


1.) 30 Oct 2019 11:33:43
I'm afraid to say it, but yes it would! :p

Gonna be honest, I'm hoping I see the squad players tonight. Our midfield and defense are super thin due to injuries, so the starters badly need a rest.

Hoping for a good match!

2.) 30 Oct 2019 12:23:56
I don't see this as open as the opener was. I am sure Lampard would have learnt his lesson from that game. HAving said that, the game is at the Bridge so the onus would be on Chelsea to go for it and that might present us with the opportunity to nick this one. I am going for a close 5-0 to us :P :P :P :D :D.

3.) 30 Oct 2019 14:01:00
Like it or not the Carabo Cup is one of our best shots at silverware, Chelsea will be out for revenge and we need to put out a strong side.

4.) 30 Oct 2019 14:26:23
I think we would do well in europa league and should be our number one priority.

5.) 30 Oct 2019 16:03:19
I think we need to have the league as our number 1 with Europa league as our number 2 priorities as finishing 4th or higher or winning the Europa league are the only ways into the UCL which we will need next season to help attract the right quality of players.

6.) 30 Oct 2019 16:33:40
Frget abt mkin top4 with this squad.

7.) 30 Oct 2019 16:48:26
I think we are in the mix Singh.

8.) 30 Oct 2019 17:26:07
I hope so DB but i highly doubt it. I see Liverpool, City, Chelsea and Spurs/ leic/ Arsenal as the last entry in top4.

9.) 30 Oct 2019 17:43:38
Few teams will be consistent across the whole season, City and Liverpool will be the most consistent with probably only minor blips here and there.

Everyone else will have a poor run of form during the season. Maybe we have had ours and we recover and have a good run over the next month and we could be right back in it.

Chelsea have a young manager, and a young squad.

Leicester have a good first team, but will they keep this form up?

Spurs are sliding downwards at the moment. Does Pochettino still wan tot be there? Do half the players still want to be there?

While Arsenal are Arsenal and will go from fantastic to appalling in the space of three minutes in any given game.

What often does pan out across a season is the best teams defensively tend to be up there at the end of the season as they don't lose often and when they do it tends to be by the odd goal.

Fortunately we have a good defence and one of the best goalkeepers in the world. So if we can keep things tight at the back, and start scoring a few of the chances we make during games we can go on a run and get the results we need.

Our undoing could be injuries, we don't have the squad to cope with too many.

10.) 30 Oct 2019 22:10:14
So we did it πŸ˜‰.

I didn't specify, i meant low crosses, not meant for headers but those that flash across the keeper begging for a leg to make contact.

Shappy I share your opinion that Greenwood can offer what Haaland does, and I'd also prefer a 1 or 2 year contract for an experienced twilight striker who won't necessarily block Greenwood's chances.
However as i read Caolan's post I couldn't help but have flashbacks of the numerous crosses into dangerous areas James has made this season without anyone connecting. Seems all our forwards (bar greenwood) want cut backs. If this kid is going to provide that then why not.
And DiscountDave has a good idea, 442. Esp for matches we anticipate a low block.
