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.

Both Pogba and Bruno injured in training.
Might miss the Bournemouth.
Outlets reporting, even if one of them don't start, the easy Bournemouth win will become much harder then.


1.) 03 Jul 2020 19:59:15
We will struggle especially if last week against Norwich is any indicator. Our midfield is then completely void of creativity, Couldn’t have came at a worse time and is just typical of our luck.

2.) 03 Jul 2020 22:42:55
Wasn't this on Facebook after days ago, in fact before the Brighton game.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 00:05:24
The overreaction when something like this gets reported is hilarious. That’s it, we are getting relegated because 2 of our players collided in training.



23 Feb 2020 05:21:34
no lingard, pereira and Dalot in the squad for Watford
Has ole finally dropped them? Andreas and Lingard have been so poor they needed dropping.
I think Dalot has been given a rest due to his injuries.


1.) 23 Feb 2020 10:18:49
Dalot looks woefully overweight. The other two have been useless all season and I can't understand why they are continually been given chances when Gomes and Garner are knocking on the door.

2.) 23 Feb 2020 10:45:21
Because gomes has done nothing to warrant a starting place yet. Nor has garner. Gomes does not want to be here either.

3.) 23 Feb 2020 11:24:58
Really hoping that we have a front 4 of Ighalo, Martial, Fernandes and Greenwood today. So, for the first time in memory, we have four players on the pitch, who could potentially score a goal. Instead of one, who could score and 3 squad players.



05 Feb 2020 11:39:28
Watch the ighalo interview.
The man looks so happy.
He's like it's man united I rejected every other club.
His agent is like you'll get a paycut.
Ighalo is like I don't care.
It's my dream.

Happy to see United sign players who want to be here.

Tired of Pogba/ Di Maria etc who don't care.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 13:33:40
Nice to see some players still dream of playing for us.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 13:51:39
no doubt we will hear he's a panic signing, he's not good enough etc etc. but honestly its refreshing to see someone who genuinely wants to be there and would have done anything to get the move. If he performs on the pitch then this move could turn out to be a good deal, especailly as he's also now available for the europa league.

3.) 05 Feb 2020 14:01:07
yeah i bet the guy can't believe his luck.

a player of his standard dreaming of playing for what was a big club.

4.) 05 Feb 2020 14:17:01
Oh Bolger cheer up. Ighalo is hardly the first player who isn't world class to play for the club.

Many players who have never been considered world class have played well for our club and have helped make a difference. Give the lad a chance.

If nothing else Spurs wanted him as cover for Kane. Now they don't have any cover. So that at the very least has to help us.

5.) 05 Feb 2020 14:21:14
Is this the new bar?

Are we so used to dross that any player being happy to sign for us is seen as a victory?

6.) 05 Feb 2020 14:19:16
Yh i think he should be rewarded for his sacrifice with a 5 year contract.

7.) 05 Feb 2020 14:59:54
Give it a couple of weeks DSG.

8.) 05 Feb 2020 15:04:04
I think it's a little too negative here.

Joshua King for some money or Ighalo on loan? It's easy.

Ighalo could have sat on his arse gotten more money yet he decided to come to United. If that doesn't show intent what does?

Would you rather see ighalo play who can maybe score goals than repeatedly see James, lingard, pereira falter when they are through on goal.

And right now we are a very mid table team and we have a signed a mid table team striker in him.

It is poor planning, and we could have gotten icardi or Ben yedder who both have been having good seasons. Yet we decided to move on without either.

I think it's a decent move if he gets 7-8 goals for us come end of season. The team lacks goalscorers in general.

9.) 05 Feb 2020 15:09:50
Danny, many top players have turned us down in the past, often preferring warmer climates. Remember when Ronaldinho was signing for us?

In recent years we have seen many players join for the money and not really want to be at the club. Pogba has been trying to force his way out for a couple of years. Others also want out.

Surely you're not that miserable of a person that you can't enjoy a player joining who is genuinely happy to sign for his boyhood club?

10.) 05 Feb 2020 15:21:31
Echo your thoughts Rohan, he wouldn't be any worse than Tony, Dan or Lingard in front of goal. A decent short term solution to our problems.

11.) 05 Feb 2020 15:37:27
Are you seriously comparing this to Ronaldinho?

Ighalo is a player playing in the Chinese league, who was sold by Watford three years because he wasn’t performing. He was given the opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the EPL, of course he’s going to be happy. How many players at his age, playing in a weak league get the opportunity to play at the highest level again?

I’m delighted that we didn’t waste £30m on King, and as a loan Ighalo makes sense. But to see supporters wetting themselves because Ighalo seems happy to be playing for us is just embarrassing.

12.) 05 Feb 2020 15:46:00
He is better than martial. No doubt about that.

13.) 05 Feb 2020 18:07:50
Danny it's the "he could have the cantona effect" that's really pissing me off.

Yeah we needed a striker and like danny we shouldn't be wasting money on players like king but ighalo is pants.

14.) 05 Feb 2020 18:34:10
Why do so many of you not rate Ighalo? I think he is a good striker, who will do a decent job for us.

15.) 05 Feb 2020 18:55:46
Csf i agree he is now or most experienced and probably best striker in the squad. Its a shot to nothing. If he comes and does well great of he doesn't do well he won't be any worse than what we have.

16.) 05 Feb 2020 19:29:03
Oh dear, now Shappy quotes Ronaldinho. I read the story about how we missed out on him, perhaps Shappy should try it.

As to the former Watford forward. Hardly surprising that a United fan should be delighted to play for the club, he should give everything to the cause which is nice. However it looks like supporters grasping at straws for a scrap of positivity it a pit of mediocrity.

Hope the lad does well, but also that the club has learned short term temps can do well yet don’t automatically turn out well when made permanent. Have they learned from the manager debacle?

17.) 05 Feb 2020 20:09:39
We needed a striker till the end of season, someone with a physical presence who can score goals and is in form. He also happens to be a fan. Anyone is better than Martial at CF. This might even help Martial's cause while Rashford is out injured. Martial benefits from another striker near him. So let's see what happens. I've got a feeling he'll do well.

18.) 05 Feb 2020 20:19:57
On ighalo we might get a surprise and shock everyone. All the big signings like di Maria, depay, falcao, sanchez where we were filled with expectation didn't work out in the slightest. Maybe this will work out a bit better. Only short term anyway guys all our main targets are no doubt playing in the champions league. Here's hoping we get a top striker in the summer 🤞.

19.) 06 Feb 2020 10:43:49
It's quite laughable, people are over these high priced, overpaid players who don't work hard
We sign a player on a short term deal who by all reports took a pay cut to come here for 6 months and is going to work his ass off and they aren't happy because he isn't an overpaid, lazy, shiny big name
Can't win.

20.) 06 Feb 2020 11:04:11
lets see how he does before anyone judges him, people rave about larsson but he only scored 3 goals.

21.) 06 Feb 2020 16:18:00
Has'nt even kicked a ball for us yet and already he's better than Martial because he came accross well in a press conference.



02 Jan 2020 20:24:14
Buendia or Cantwell thoughts?
Both have had really good seasons in a really poor team.
I think both are attainable and much better than what we have as no. 10.
Definite improvement over Pereira, Mata or lingard.


1.) 02 Jan 2020 22:53:49
I have no thoughts on either rohan. Not seen enough of either.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 00:39:21
Grealish or maddison please.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 04:27:29
Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen may be the most realistic and attainable options from the list of targets.

4.) 03 Jan 2020 14:24:23
Cantwell's been in my fantasy football team since day 1, if that helps 😁.



10 Oct 2019 13:22:29
I'm going to go in a different direction today.

Our goalkeeping is sorted.

The defense isn't great, but still Tuanzebe and Maguire and Lindelof are far better than starting Smalling and Jones.

We've not had a quality RB since Gary Neville. AWB fits well.

LB is a problem, but Shaw, young and Brandon can fill it.

I hear a lot about the midfield woes and I think it's on par of the midfield we had where we played with Carrick, Anderson, cleverley etc.

We've generally been a team with a poor midfield for a really long time now.

The wide players are well stocked on the left, and no one on the right.

I think our real issue right now is goalscoring.

Even if the chances created in a game are less than what is expected them to, there have been numerous times when Rashford/ lingard and other players have scuffed quite easy chances.

This reminds me of all the years when we had a striker
Lukaku and Ibra in previous seasons.

Berba, RVP, Rooney, Ronaldo, Tevez, Chicharito, Louis Saha etc.

I honestly feel that a just retired RVP and Rooney or zlatan would have scored half the chances that Lingard/ Rashford have missed.

We could have added a certain Bruno Fernandes, who just scores every game, yet we dwindled on money, this was the time a little overpaying would not have been harmful.

I think a real quality striker is an issue and any 15-20 goals goalscorer will instantly lift the team up.

3-4 players I'd look to Target are
1)Lucas Moura 2)Haaland 3)Timo Werner are some strikers I'd be very open to us signing.

Bruno Fernandes, Lucas Moura and Haaland. I'd splash 150-200m on them this January and the impact would be instant.


1.) 10 Oct 2019 15:30:00
Lucas Moura is hugely inconsistent.
Moussa Dembele may be our first choice striker target.

2.) 10 Oct 2019 16:04:51
Dembele is doing really well at moment. We'd have to pay stupid money and stupid wages to get the lad in January. He is exactly who we should be looking at, but I can't see a push in January for him.

3.) 10 Oct 2019 16:43:30
Mumbles, supposedly he is being rotated with Depay a lot. So there might be a little wiggle room to get him in January. We would have to pay a premium, but if he is first choice amoung the backroom team and he is available in January then we should try and get the deal done if possible.

In an ideal world we would sign our first choice options in January. Yet they are unlikely to be available, so we will either have to look at other options or wait until the summer.

4.) 10 Oct 2019 17:11:13
The problem is Shappy, the board got cold feet in January when LvG wanted reinforcements and he was struggling. Had two players lined up apparently and pulled the plug. We missed out on the top 4 by one point that year to City. The board said it was because of the "toxic" fans but it was clearly them not being able to hold their breath and continue with the plan.

Will Ole be around come January? If he is, are they really going to spend big on his targets knowing that the wheels could come off at any minute?

All the players we are linked with are supposedly Jose's preferred targets. We'll get go Ole's targets when he's long gone and the new manager wants new players.

5.) 10 Oct 2019 18:28:11
Mumbles, it does depend on what the club intend to do with the manager going forward.

However, under LvG we signed Herrera and Shaw who were targets under Moyes. We signed Bailly under Mourinho who was a target under LvG, then we signed Maguire under Ole who was a target under Mourinho.

That is four signings brought in who were targets under the former manager.

So the club have a history of doing it.

The most important signing for me isn't a striker in the summer but a top quality link player between the midfield and the forward line. Maddison would be the dream but he won't be available in January. Maybe Bruno Fernandes might be, or we could look to someone like Dani Olmo maybe.

6.) 10 Oct 2019 23:33:57
Out midfield is woeful. They don't protect the defence and don't assist the strikers enough either. I wish we had a Carrick in our team. He was never glamorous but he knew how to play alright. Get a proper midfield sorted and our strikers will get loads of goals.

let's play exactly my thoughts.
There seems to be a shift in transfer strategy.
We are looking for hungrier and these 2 100% want to play for United.
One is potentially world class.
And the other is a seasoned striker on loan.
Could well be the difference for top 4 finish.

I think we have had enough of Jones, Smalling and rojo as united fans.
Smalling is the best of the lot, but we needed a change and if he moves to Roma he plays in an easier league and we get some money for a 30 year old.

They will very likely give the job to people who manage a club, a dof and actually spend money.
City have improved massively under a similar thing.

I don't think anyone is buying Sanchez for 15m with 1 year left on his contract.

At best, he will sit on the bench until his contract runs out, or we'll buy out his contract and make him a free agent.

I think the transfer prices may take a serious hit which no one can tell. I honestly can't see football happening this year.
