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.

Paul Pogba.

4.) 14 Jan 2022 09:45:13
Just buy the whole French team in the summer, that should do it! ?.

5.) 14 Jan 2022 11:23:05
Paul Pogba has had enough opportunities at this club.
He's been here 5 season now and had 10 maybe 15 good games that i can remember.

He seems to be constantly injured now as well and will be 29 in March. Is he really worth 500 grand a week. i think not.

He's been a massive flop from start to finish and the sooner he's moved on the better for everyone involved.

6.) 14 Jan 2022 11:43:25
I honestly believe when we get shot of Pogba we will start getting a better mentality and attitude from the players. I am not holding Pogba fully accountable for the poor attitude but he is a big character, a big presence and I don't believe he is the sort of individual we need around the team at the moment. Him along with Martial are not the type of players we need in our current position. I have no doubt they will both go elsewhere and play to a level where people start saying and the media start reporting about how and why we never got or saw these performances but I think they need a team and league where they can afford to have their laid back attitudes but have their ego's stroked.

7.) 14 Jan 2022 11:48:02
Apparently he has missed 2 seasons out of 5, due to injuries.

8.) 14 Jan 2022 14:03:56
Pp is the most overrated player of all time. He is the definition of a show pony and if football was an individual sport would look like a genius. but it is not and his refusal to take responsibility, like any teammate does, is the reason he is an awful player overall. we will not be winning anything till he is long gone.

9.) 14 Jan 2022 16:03:39
Is there anyone with a better haircut then Pogba?

10.) 14 Jan 2022 19:13:52



02 Jan 2022 05:58:48
I just read a MEN article which says Bruno plays at the flank for his crosses and his ability to keep possession.
Do these writers even watch him play?
Bruno is hardly good at keeping possession, it's one risky pass or flick every other time.


1.) 02 Jan 2022 18:15:27
You must be forgetting last season and his half season before that then?



08 Dec 2021 09:55:30
Official: Björn Hardley. Charlie Wellens, Charlie Savage, Zidane Iqbal, Sam Mather and Shola Shoretire have been added to #mufc's Champions League B-list squad. #UCL

Maybe some surprises on the bench.
It really doesn't matter if we win or lose, so personally I won't like to see any of the 11 that started vs crystal palace in the squad except maybe rashford who needs to build fitness.


1.) 08 Dec 2021 11:05:01
Would be good to see one or two of these lads get some game time.

Of that bunch Shola Shoretire looks to be a cut above.

2.) 08 Dec 2021 11:26:10
I agree, I'd like to see quite a few changes, although I think a win is a must for momentum.

As for Rashford I think he needs to get his head out of his arse and play for the team rather than himself.

3.) 08 Dec 2021 11:34:23
Yeah shappy Shoretire is the standout name there. One who could have a big future here.

4.) 08 Dec 2021 12:39:42
Robbie will be delighted?.

5.) 08 Dec 2021 13:53:55
I think he'll be delighted if we manage to pay 50m for tielemans for Pogba replacement and he'd come and say I told you so.

Many things can go wrong, but I think they won't, Rangnick looks class above any coach we've had since saf.

I really hope we see his ruthless side in the next 2-3 windows where we get rid of players that don't suit or want to move.

I hope Pogba is the first name on that list.

6.) 08 Dec 2021 14:03:12
I’m reliably informed at least Savage will be on the bench tonight.

7.) 08 Dec 2021 14:23:58
I have no idea of any of these players except shoretire. I don't even know who plays where.

8.) 08 Dec 2021 15:32:16
5 subs for Europe.
We may see plenty of new faces.

9.) 08 Dec 2021 16:23:46
News that Ralfi boy stayed back to give the youngsters extra coaching ahead of today's game. Awesome if true. can't wait.

10.) 08 Dec 2021 16:45:12
Ryan if that’s correct those lads will feel 10 foot tall.

11.) 08 Dec 2021 17:59:22
That's amazing news, that's what it should be.
First team managers making the youngsters feel that they too are part of the club and if they play well they can get called up.
Rangnick is actually doing the right things.

12.) 08 Dec 2021 18:57:35
All 5 lads the only outfield subs named. Delighted for every single one of them.

13.) 08 Dec 2021 18:59:39
I've just seen the line up. delighted to see it.

14.) 08 Dec 2021 19:27:19
So that will be young boys playing Young Boys then!



02 Dec 2021 22:23:22
We as a club do not miss Pogba one bit.
I'm glad he doesn't start for us anymore, hopefully he leaves and for the better.


1.) 02 Dec 2021 23:18:32
He is injured tbf. I am sure a fully fit Pogba would be slotted in somewhere.

2.) 03 Dec 2021 07:25:32
I met his agent through a mutual friend this summer. They have no intention of staying and he is leaving.

3.) 03 Dec 2021 14:57:17
Nothing Changes - best news i have heard all year that. i will be having a little celebratory drink tonight.



10 Nov 2021 16:48:18
I hear we are announcing Anderson as Head of Nutrition for our club.


{Ed014's Note - Hans Christian or Viv?

1.) 11 Nov 2021 07:42:47
I would have expected Col Sanders knowing how our Board thinks.

2.) 11 Nov 2021 08:59:32
I think Anderson had an exclusive deal with the Colonel.

Please take him in January.
If it was me, I'd pay off his 6 months money and cancel the contract.

Same with that JLingz and Mata. Or loan them out with the other club paying their wages or most wages for the next 6 months.

Having players causing problems or players that don't start is something I thoroughly despise.

He won't cost a lot 5m and the wages shouldn't be higher than Phil Jones.
The bar he has to keep is be better than mctom and fred. He also has 38 apps for a decent Swiss side.
I think that's very achievable.

He will work for Newcastle for half a season, maybe 1 season than play how he used to and go missing.
Lingard might work out well for Newcastle.
Newcastle hope bringing lingard can make their instagram pages better :)

Matic legs have gone, he cannot play more than 60 mins.
We would have a better chance of winning if we subbed him and played Jones as DM. He looked shot.
Regarding the Donny thing, some posters calling out we lose when we play him, or he does nothing, can you please tell me what does Fred do?
Fred is positionally awful, going forward he's meh, cannot control a ball.
He doesn't track runners at all.
He's a headless chicken.
Fred over the course of career is a 5/ 10 player.
Donny hasn't played much, but is it really that hard to be better than a fred? I think he'd easily surpass them.
And the thing 2 managers didn't see anything in him is bull, maybe Rangnick for all his amazing conferences is still understanding the squad.
I've personally not been impressed by Rangnick one bit now.
For a lot of the time, he looks like he's ole.
