Someone on suggested that we sell Pogba to real Madrid for some money and ask for Martin odegaard in return.

Would you be open to that?
Odegaard is Norwegian and from what I've heard he's been carrying sociedad team.

I'm tired of Pogba
either being injured, posting useless posts saying they'll come back stronger, misplace 100s of passes, or his agent dropping stories of him leaving.

He hasn't worked out for quite a few years now, and maybe he is more suited to a league like Madrid and probably more happy with more money, better city and a paparazzi club.

I would love to take odegaard of Madrid's hands.

Ideally if we sign replacements and let Pogba, Matic, Mata, Jones, Rojo and Sanchez out and get 3-4 quality players with Smalling back in the squad it would help us a lot in terms of getting all the overpaid/ average lot out.

I would still keep Ashley young for 1 more season as he has a better fitness record than all of our fullbacks.
Plus he seems like a good professional who might have 1 last season left in him for 7-8 games in Europa league.
Shaw will stay because he's British.
Laird, Dalot more involved.


{Ed002's Note - No that is not the plan.}

1.) 09 Dec 2019 19:23:42
To be honest I think Odegaard is why Madrid are backing away from Pogba. They have done good young talent at Madrid, a few out on loan. Maybe it'll end in tears because its Madrid but they do have some seriously good prospects.

2.) 09 Dec 2019 19:39:19
but does odegaard get shirt sales?

3.) 09 Dec 2019 19:23:17
Thanks Ed. could you tell us what's planned then? Appreciate as always.

4.) 09 Dec 2019 23:18:34
The plan is for them to offer us cash plus players bbs

The ed did a post not long ago

Off the top off my head it was kroos bale james isco.

Cant remember who else.

5.) 09 Dec 2019 23:30:13
Ed002 as i was reading down the OP
i was wondering)
1 if you would reply
2 how short the reply would be
3 would i laugh
2 outta 3 ain't bad.
On a serious note i think you have said there will be a bid from juve with players plus fee.
Do you think madrid will also bid in jan.
And do you know if united hold an interest in any of the players that may possibly be offered by either club?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about. If you have a question, plain English works best.}

6.) 10 Dec 2019 09:43:35
I would personally steer clear of player like Odegaard, he has found his level at Sociedad, very similar to Zaha playing for Crystal Palace and doing just fine.

Pogba is a luxury that we cannot afford now, but saying he is all negative is a bit harsh. Without him we still lack any creativity in midfield which is evident when we play teams that sit back and defend, nobody knows if he really a bad influence in the dressing room or its just bad press majority of the time.

As for his injuries, it happens to all the players, what will you call Martial then?

{Ed047's Note - the problem with Pogba is he rarely shows up, maybe like Odegaard his true level is Italy or Spain and the Premier League is just too much for him.

You need a midfielder who turns up every game and given the opportunity I’d swap him out for any of City’s midfielders and most of Liverpool’s.

He really is a waste of a shirt for you guys. What will you honestly miss about him when he’s gone. He hung of better players coat tails in winning in Italy and for France.

7.) 10 Dec 2019 10:11:31
He is decent whenever he plays, inconsistent but he is the best creative midfielder we have. let's see how he does not when we have our fully functioning front 3.
13 goals 9 assists last season for a midfielder is just too good, dare someone says most of them were penalties as for UTD players even taking penalties is a huge task.
Also unless we have a very good replacement lined up i don't think we should get rid of him.

8.) 10 Dec 2019 10:48:20
becks you must see something i dont. i just see a half arsed player who thinks he is better than he is.

9.) 10 Dec 2019 11:37:30
That half arsed guy has been more creative than any other full arsed player tbh. But again if we get a quality replacement i am fine with him leaving. Madison being the first choice.

10.) 10 Dec 2019 14:05:07
Pretty sure half of pogba goals for us have been penalties last season.

11.) 10 Dec 2019 15:43:22
This is what happens when you skip a few posts.

12.) 10 Dec 2019 22:03:51
Red whiskey😂😂 quality.

13.) 12 Dec 2019 18:51:08
Odegaard hasn't been good since FM15.



11 Apr 2017 08:41:04
We've let a lot of decent players leave and replaced with lesser quality players. I think Zaha is a brilliant dribbler, a typical SAF winger, but is his crossing upto the mark?
Does he want to move again to United and play under Jose who doesn't play youth very much.
I think he'll leave for Spurs, Liverpool, City than us.


1.) 11 Apr 2017 10:31:59
MOTD Fever, Rohan? Your first line reads "decent players leave and replaced with lesse quality" and then you add on to say Zaha. Is he really United standard? Here we are, talking of players like Sanchez/ Griezmann/ Belotti etc. Why would you want Zaha anywhere near the team?

2.) 11 Apr 2017 11:19:41
Yh zaha very inconsistent on his day he's unbelievable but nowhere near good enough.

3.) 11 Apr 2017 22:28:08
Zaha? Really? I'm speechless.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes talented eric, i know it never worked out for him at united but feel that was more to do with walloping moyes,s daughter than football ability mate.. :)

4.) 12 Apr 2017 12:24:11
I'm not saying per say we should sign him.

5.) 12 Apr 2017 23:28:27
Ha - good point Ed. There was always that rumour flying around.



17 Mar 2017 16:01:32
Youri Tielemans to play at OT.
Yes. Anderlecht vs United in the Europa league.
Ronnie must be the most pleased of all and finally we all posters get to see what the deal is about that guy.
PS Herrera in his post match said that Pogba wasn't that badly injured.




14 Mar 2017 17:34:06
Looking at the last 16 and the possible 8, when we qualify for the quarter finals in the Europa league.
There aren't any clubs that strike fear and looks as favourites.
The only sides I see as threatening are Celta da Vigo, Lyon and Roma.
Celts because they have been terrific in cup competitions and knock Madrid out in 2 legs.

One of Lyon and Roma will progress and both of them are free scorers.
Nobody apart from that. I fancy us beating Besiktas, Anderlecht etc.
Personally I'd love a tie against Anderlecht and see wtf is Youri Tielemans about if we progress.


1.) 15 Mar 2017 08:10:32
When? I wouldn't back us to beat anybody at the moment. I think "if" was the word you were looking for.

2.) 16 Mar 2017 22:23:16
I want Lyon or Schalke get them out of the way. I do not fear anyone in this competition. You have to beat the best to win!



12 Mar 2017 12:59:37
I'm not sure, but newspapers reporting Lingard had 1 year to run down on his current contract.
Do you guys rate him, does he deserve to be paid and be part of the first team?
I disagree, and would want to sell him to anyone who pays well. He scores at Wembley, and he helps the team, but is nowhere near the quality we need. He misses sitters, and I personally hate his social media stuff. He's just a poor Ji-Sung Park in my book.


1.) 12 Mar 2017 13:15:53
He's a squad player who lacks consistency. Some games he makes an impact; others he drifts along.
I'd offer him s new contract as he can play on both wings and in the number 10 position. Mourinho may yet work his magic with him.

2.) 12 Mar 2017 13:39:24
Spent this season hoping he would have an impact but it hasn't happened. Not sure about him on the wings as he always comes inside and we are left without any width.

I thought his best position was as a 10. But he played there for England once and his performance got ripped to shreds by whoever was the pundit that day. Also, we have loads of players that can play as a 10. Still not sure whether he will ever establish himself as a 1st team regular.

3.) 12 Mar 2017 14:05:39
Jesse Lingard is a Red, born and raised and is living the dream of any fan. One of our own.

A number of fans a quick to criticize him and i believe it is because we didn't spend £30m on him and he isn't a foreign FM wonderkid.

How many people on here where creaming themselves over Depay and then saying he needs more chances. Same for Martial.

He could be inconsistent because he only plays 1 in 4 games. But remember he is only getting a game because Martial, Mhiki, Mata or Rooney haven't been doing it. So you should direct the criticism in their direction.

He is an impact player and squad player. Sometimes he makes and impact sometimes he doesn't. But he has won.

There are players to go before Jesse and he will be needed next season.

He deserves a £70k a week contract with fees and bonus he'd touch 100k. He didn't cost anything and this isn't FIFA.

Also how many would take Welbeck back? I personally would and at the time was happy when we sold him. Live and learn.

4.) 12 Mar 2017 14:35:59
He's rubbish. OK he scored the winner in the League Cup Final but apart from that he's dreadful. Oh yeah there was the winner in the Community Shield but other than that, nothing. Apart from the winning goal in the FA Cup Final. But other than those winning goals that secured us trophies he's just a poor man's Ralph Milne.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 19:47:49

6.) 12 Mar 2017 20:02:13
"I personally hate his social media stuff. "
The way I think which you could get over this is by not following his social media?

I would keep him as squad player 100%.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 20:13:49
Jesse should 100% stay, he gets more game time than Rooney and has probably been more influencial over the course of the season.

He's home grown and red to the core, why the hell would we sell one of our own, especially one who offers so much?

Football is a squad game, and he is a vital member of our squad. Why do you think Arsenal and Spurs are supposedly interested in him?

8.) 12 Mar 2017 20:43:33
No way should be be sold. Good versatile squad player. English, home grown and well worth his place in a 25 mam squad imo.

9.) 12 Mar 2017 21:22:58
AJH 😂😂.

10.) 12 Mar 2017 23:04:20
With Ken on this one, a good squad rotation player, only way I sell him if we get a ridiculous offer that's too go to refuse.

11.) 13 Mar 2017 00:28:56
Not good enough in my opinion. Sell him!

12.) 13 Mar 2017 17:22:30
Aside from score a goal, can anyone remember anything else he has done this season?

13.) 13 Mar 2017 18:27:12
What did th rain mans ever do for us? How about his first time cross on the run Beast? Can you remember anything Pogba has done this season?

14.) 13 Mar 2017 18:32:04
That should be Romans, obvs.

15.) 14 Mar 2017 01:21:05
Good squad player imo. Bred red, but so was welbeck.
The only way i would sell him is if we going to buy big in summer. We still have andreas prerira coming back too. he's bred red but we shouldn't make this too big a factor. Kid got eye for goal. A no10 in my eyes. Not quick enough for the wings. i'm a huge andreas fan, and believe he has great potential. Jus don't know how much game time him and lingard can get if they both stay.

Pellestri is toying with derby. Looks like a player. Very lively, extremely well taken goal.


1.) 18 Jul 2021 17:06:51
Very composed in front of goal. But, if he doesn't go out on loan, will he get much game time this season?

2.) 18 Jul 2021 18:33:48
There are a few Mad who must be thinking about loans. Pellestri, Shoretire in particular probably need a loan to develop further.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 18:26:24
Agree pellestri looked good. He's going back to alaves on loan by the sounds of it. Good move for him and hopefully he can kick on.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 19:57:36
I don't like the alaves loan to be honest, he's better off in the championship or in a premier league side.
He looked like a proper old school right winger.
He was up against a decent championship side and even though he looked tiny he was not muscled much, he seems to quicker than Diallo to me, and whenever he got the ball it looked like something would happen. He was pushing forward rather than our usual culprits who dally on the ball and pass it back.
I would loan him to Brighton or Brentford or a ven crystal palace.

5.) 18 Jul 2021 20:16:50
Rohan it’s not just as simple as saying let’s loan him to ‘insert team name here’. They’ve got to actually want him, and based on his performances on loan last season I can’t see any premiership team wanting him.



30 Jun 2021 19:16:35
Sancho done deal. Confirmed by Romano.
Imagine Sancho in a United shirt, sitting on the bench with Donny while Pogba plays LW and Rashy plays RW. Stuff of dreams, ole at the wheel.


1.) 30 Jun 2021 19:22:48
Apparently the fee 85m + 10m add-ons. A much better deal than last Summer when Borussia wanted 120m. (I frankly don't care if we messed everyone around:)

2.) 30 Jun 2021 19:33:26
73 million in total dev1l.

3.) 30 Jun 2021 19:35:05

4.) 30 Jun 2021 19:56:51
Rohana he's not coming to sit on the bench I love hearing here we go from Romano.

5.) 30 Jun 2021 20:25:24
I know Danny, rather he will play him game after game until he runs to the ground. That's just football you know. We are getting better and better. Sancho is a top top player with loads of ability. We will teach him ole ball where you run to the corner of the pitch maintain width get the ball and either pass it to AWB to create something or pass the ball back to a crowded midfield. Amad has already learnt that exceedingly well.

6.) 30 Jun 2021 22:08:28
So in your hate for ole, you are looking beyond the happiness a United fan might have that we have signed one of the better players in the world?

7.) 30 Jun 2021 22:17:33
Jeez let's not get excited about the biggest transfer so far this summer, let's dig the coach out. 😒.

8.) 01 Jul 2021 00:00:44

Welcome to this site, you’re learning how it goes, it’s toxic but you get used to it.

9.) 01 Jul 2021 06:04:07
It's amazing we've gone on and signed Sancho, earlier in the window than we usually have before.

We could go on and sign Varane or Niguez and yet will still have Ole as our manager.

Ole has got to go, aren't you all tired of this sentimental crap where we keep singing ex-United players as coaches.

Rashford might need a surgery, I hope he gets it and comes back 100%, but I can see Ole playing him without rest.

There's talk mata or lingard might extend. Then we go on to extend Bailly's, who for me should have been allowed to leave.

Ole is a Glazer puppet, and is not good enough to manage a championship side let alone one of the best in England.

10.) 01 Jul 2021 06:16:56
He came 2nd in the league mate. Even I am not sure about Ole but he has earned himself another season at least. So stop the Ole needs to go at least till Christmas.

11.) 01 Jul 2021 06:39:34
He lost a final to villareal, the team stopped playing in extra time and we're happy with a draw. He keeps losing the big semis and finals. And it's not like the team has improved has massively we play the same negative boring way, it's just we have more individually gifted players now. Cavani and Bruno.

12.) 01 Jul 2021 09:45:36
Welcome ewm
It can be good craic on here.
Sancho has the potential to be a really good signing.
I hope he gets the no7 shirt and cavani moves to no 9. Martial out the door or into the u23s for the season.
Its hard for some folk to get excited as ole has sucked the enthusiasm and life out of many supporters.
We can go on living in hope but to be honest if I had the choice of signing 5 great players or sacking ole I'd choose sacking ole its hard for a lot of us to be excited by anything united related until he is fired.
We start again in Aug and for me its with little or no hope that we will be successful or even enjoyable to watch.

13.) 01 Jul 2021 10:10:51
Great signing, looking forward to seeing him in action. I can't see mega bucks being spent on a CB and DM. Reckon it'll be a top CB and then maybe a younger mid to bed in during Matic's likely last season with maybe Fred also moving on next season. Rice will be far too expensive for this window and Camavinga seems unlikely.

14.) 01 Jul 2021 13:05:00
Exactly ken,
Because we've sold players for not playing well, we've benched some too yet Ole has been immune.
So has some of his favourites who keep on starting game after game doing the same mistake again and again.
People will claim Tuanzebe has had bad games, Lindelof mind you has had worse.
I think we've wasted Tuanzebe and with Varane incoming his career is done here. There was a player there in tuanzebe.



27 Jun 2021 20:40:51
Dalot started really well today, drives forward and complete opposite to AWB. Even the games against Milan he looked really good against us. I have no idea why Ole wants to sell him and buy someone like trippier.


1.) 27 Jun 2021 20:49:35
You must be watching a different game to me, don’t see it with it at all, he is wasteful, his crossing has been poor, he gets up the wing a lot but doesn’t really do much when he gets there and he’s nowhere near good enough defensively. I can see exactly why Ole wants someone better.

2.) 27 Jun 2021 21:01:56
I echo those sentiments GDS2. Has been poor this first half. His service when in advanced positions has been piss poor.

3.) 27 Jun 2021 21:20:16
Is Sanches the same player who was at Swansea? Having a brilliant tournament so far and seems built for the b2b role in the EPL. Anyone think a pint may be worth it? Him vs Fred, I know who I would rather have.

4.) 27 Jun 2021 21:58:43

Big discussion about him the other day, his injury record is appalling, have a search, some good opinions.

5.) 27 Jun 2021 22:39:32
Sanchez is young and possibly mismanaged in his first years as a professional. He certainly is an upgrade on what we have.

6.) 28 Jun 2021 12:45:05
Thanks GDS.



27 Jun 2021 15:56:53
Fancy signing Arnautovic for a free?
Does work perfectly with our policy of signing old strikers on a free. Would be bad to break the record this season.
I also think Cavani wouldn't play more than 30 games, so we would sewa lot of Martial as CF which I don't like at all.


1.) 27 Jun 2021 16:00:20
I'd definitely rather play Martial than sign Arnautovic.

2.) 27 Jun 2021 17:39:59
I’d rather one of the Glaziers played than Martial.

3.) 27 Jun 2021 18:28:54
More likely we'll sign Lewandowski next summer when Bayern sign Haaland via his clause. With Cavani leaving.



17 Jun 2021 12:46:17
Ashley Young on a free, Ole go sign him up.
Former captain, United through and through.
Why spend 20-30m on a trippier when you can get Ashley young back in red.
Ole at the wheel.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 17:02:33
I hope your joking.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 18:44:21
Young was never good enough for United in the first place. He always was a liability.

3.) 17 Jun 2021 19:41:33
Since fergie young atleast performed to the best of his ability in mulitple positions! He was always willing to go out n give his all! A quality that i wish that more than half our squad now had!

4.) 18 Jun 2021 21:32:25
Another failed transfer, OleOut.

Smart move by the board to let a player who might be a potential regular Portugal fullback who can play both fullback positions, and is on lower wages and would be a good no2.
Didn't city sign somewhat similar play in cancelo for 2-3 times he's worth?
Our board and their stupid decision making.

Salford7 one reason for joining United is that he loves the idea of having 2 DMs sitting ahead of him in fred and mctom.
Also with Lindelof being the right sided CB trippier will get to hone his defensive skills much better.
And honestly our bench is pretty great company with the likes of Matic, Donny, Alex Telles all seasoned professionals with whom he can talk as much as he can in English. I think any player would be super excited to work under our managers where he can have a crap game and yet come out and hear we are getting better and better.
And with ole ball in place, he won't really have to attack so less running for him and just make the interception and pass the ball to Lindelof or fred so that they can create. It's a much easier job than an Atletico.

I think we will go not be any worse if one of de gea and henderson stayed.
Both have their own qualities.
We however very harsh on Romero, I'm not sure what happened with him, but he was definitely a good shout for gk rotation. I don't think he had a bad game.
Although Heaton as second choice is very decent backup.

If we wanted to keep lingard we should have let mata go. Same with Bailly, his contract should not have been extended last year. And now I fear we are going to extend Lingard's contract.
The number of goalkeepers we have is mad.

Rashford's pen was a bit unlucky miss, but Sancho and saka were badly taken pens.
I was so surprised not to see grealish take the 5th pen.
It's too much extra pressure on a young lad like saka. For me it should have been grealish taking the 5th pen. Or maybe who scored a blinder.
