City have bid 100 million plus players for Kane. If they get Kane may as well hand the PL trophy over now.


{Ed077's Note - PSG have players like Mbappe, Neymar, Verratti etc and yet finished runners up to a Lille side with a 35 year old Burak Yilmaz leading the line and 37 year old Jose Fonte marshalling the defence.

So maybe wait till at least City begin their "transition"}

1.) 21 Jun 2021 17:24:49
The big difference is City are coached by the best coach in the world.

{Ed0666's Note - That’s debatable

2.) 21 Jun 2021 17:28:52
We won't be in the mix anyway Simo makes no difference to us sadly.

3.) 21 Jun 2021 17:29:50
City are a different animal to psg ed with a world class manager.

No doubt it will make them stronger, chelsea will be there and liverpool will be a lot closer than last season they will be back to there best.

But i agree with sim they will win it again if they get kane.

4.) 21 Jun 2021 18:05:21
I agree with Ken that it doesn't make any difference for the short term, City are favourites matter what. But can make a difference in two years.
Paying 150 millions for a player means you stick with him for at least 3-4 years. I am not sure how long can Kane be at his peak. As Ed014 says he seems unfit. His game depends in physicality (for me he is one of the strongest out there) and physicality will be lost with age and injuries. Kane is a slow starter, every time he comes back from injury he seems off the pace and needs 2-3 games to find his feet. At this time he is anonymous and then he is firing. I am not so sure paying 150 millions for Kane is the best for the long term.

5.) 21 Jun 2021 19:07:29
I've never been a fan of Harry Kane. He has a very good goal scoring record, but has become some what injury prone. I just don't like his style of play. He hasn't impressed me enough for the money that would be needed to purchase him from Spurs.

I know a lot of people will disagree with me. I feel he can be abit of a hinderence aswell.

{Ed025's Note - hes certainly a hinderance to opposition defences MH..

6.) 21 Jun 2021 19:23:21
If City get Kane and Chelsea get Haaland, who gets the better deal and who wins the league?

{Ed025's Note - city all day mate..

7.) 21 Jun 2021 19:28:23
I stand to be corrected but Kanes injury record is not as bad as people make out. He normally misses a month or so in a season. that's not going to hurt City with all the resources they have as cover.

He will score loads for them and instead of playing for a team like Spurs where the pressure is on him to always play and to always score means he can manage his body better and keep in better shape for longer.

He is not slow but certainly not the fastest either. He has an excellent football brain and as his speed declines he will play more and more like Teddy Sheringham who I seem to recall did ok for us.

His transfer fee and wages are almost an irrelevance to City. If he helps to retain the league and wim the Champions League he will have repaid the fee many times over.

{Ed025's Note - im with you salford mate..

8.) 21 Jun 2021 19:44:23
I think Kane is a fantastic fit for City and will make them significantly stronger. Not sure it's enough for them to win a CL though.

{Ed014's Note - Haaland on the other hand will make them as strong but more likely stronger for much longer!

9.) 21 Jun 2021 20:54:17
Think I’d have Son from Tottenham before Kane! Would love Haaland tho.

10.) 21 Jun 2021 22:40:54
Means they’ll not sign Haaland. Maybe we will?

11.) 21 Jun 2021 23:43:46
Think I trust Pep more than anyone here to know what his side needs and the difference he will make….

12.) 22 Jun 2021 01:20:58
I don't spenno. I don't think their record at transfers is great the last 5 years. In defence players come and go, they only seem to rate Dias as top class defender. At wingbacks Cancelo don't play enough, Mendy have injury problems and he is not at Citys level and even Walker for me is not a top player-take physicality out of him and he is a below average player. At the centre Gudogan is certainly a very good player but i don't think Rodri is an 60 million player. Up front they brought Bernardo Mahrez Torres and Jesus and as far as i know they would like to sell two of them, Mahrez and Zesus. Torres we don't know if he is good enough until he has a full year and Silva is a very good rw or am .
I certainly don't trust Pep and their recruitment team. I trust Liverpool but not City.

13.) 22 Jun 2021 04:51:54
If we got Kane, he would have been a sensational player. Now City bid for him and he becomes an injury prone average player. Sour grapes.

14.) 22 Jun 2021 12:11:54

I don’t want us to sign Kane for the amount stated and I think many on here said exactly the same when we were linked.

15.) 22 Jun 2021 12:46:35
Would love kane, at any price. Top quality. We spent 85mil on maguire and will spend similar on Sancho. Don't tell me Kane isn't worth it.

16.) 22 Jun 2021 13:26:16
UA all of us would like to have Kane in our team. None said that he is a crap player, he is very good, plays in National team and on paper is great. Though we must be able to see the "turning point" of each player. I mean you speak for Kane like he is 22 and has plenty of time so it worths 150+ millions. He doesn't according to us. He is in his way down and have in mind that he is not 27. When he will play his first game for his new team he will be 28 to 29.

17.) 22 Jun 2021 11:41:57

I pressed send before I could have finished. I meant he can be a hinderence to the team he is playing for. Obviously being a goalscorer the team is set up for him, but against the top teams, he doesn't seem to be able to deliver the goods when it is needed. Although Spurs have been over reliant on him for years.

The CL final when he was injured and came back for it springs to mind about him being a hinderence. Spurs missed Moura because it was all about Kane being fit and making sure he should play etc. The rest of the team tends to get forgotten, or become less of a priority. Perhaps just that was out of desperation to win the CL.

{Ed025's Note - you have to play your best players when you can MH and harry is definitely that, i think if he had better service he could be even more prolific mate, if city get him i believe the league would be over..

18.) 22 Jun 2021 18:34:37
You can see it the way you want to. For me one of the best players in our team last season was a 34 year old "past his best". The "on the wy down" player you refer to had the most goals and most assists in the PL this season. For me Kane still has a good 4-5 seasons at the top level and he strengthens any team he joins. Kane's game was never built around speed so it won't affect him. The craze with speed that some fans have is something i don't understand. Usain Bolt would do well of speed were everything.

150m or whatever it is that Levy demands would be well worth it when Kane top scores next season again. If Haaland who is unproven in the PL is worth what Dortmund would want then Kane is worth it too.

GDS, its a seller's market so it doesn't matter what you or i think. If Levy thinks Kane is worth 150m, then that's his price. Neymar wasnt close to what PSG paid but they did. We could go on listing player after player who weren't worth but they were purchased. Kane is worth every penny.

{Ed025's Note - im with you addict mate..

19.) 22 Jun 2021 19:17:44
I've watched few of the England games with Kane, Sterling and Foden, haven't been that impressed. Two shots on target in two games, maybe he is not the dream signing they think he will be.

20.) 22 Jun 2021 19:29:56
Do you know Alexis stats for the past two seasons before he came to us United Addict? I think back then you would show us how many he scored and asisted and say he is not on his way down.
For me its not about pace but physicality in the way he plays. I have seen him with his back to our goal, having two defenders in his back and turn them like they are nothing. For me he is one of the strongest players out there and that won't last forever, age and injuries (if he have) will affect his game. Ofcourse he will always be a top finisher but I don't expect to see Kane of Tottenham until he is 34-35. Furthermore, as many posters said, we don't know what's his reaction at not being the focal point, not having a free role and play the robotic style of Pep.
Ofcourse that's only my opinion and i maybe be completely wrong but because money aren't endless I wouldn't want to pay 150 millions to find out. I would like the same amount of money to be spended at a younger star who has 5+ years at the top level for sure.

{Ed025's Note - dont worry herrera...they wont be knocking on your door for a contribution mate.. :)

21.) 22 Jun 2021 19:46:31
Lol Ed025. We don't have a great record at big money sighnings and we don't have a great record at letting them go when it's time too. We payed 100+ millions for Pogba and because of that we stick with him and keep him hostage as 002 says. We paid 85 for Maguire and we must stick with him. We payed 50 for Matic and he gave us how many, 1 good season? And because of him we have not space to go and take another midfielder. We would be a lot better without them and there would be room for incomes and room for improvement.

{Ed025's Note - thats woodward for you mate..



30 Sep 2020 12:10:36
And now the scramble begins. We are now talking with Dembele. So in the space of 15-20 hours we have put a bid in for Sancho which was rejected and now turned our attention to Demeble. Why did they leave it so late?


1.) 30 Sep 2020 12:59:36
They were always going to under cut dortmund and go else where.

Wasting time yet again.

2.) 30 Sep 2020 16:54:59
You have to laugh, somebody comes up with this strategy year after year.

3.) 01 Oct 2020 02:22:01
Got to live when you hear United are in talks for a player when the whole world knows they cannot get deals over the line and the people negotiating these transfers should be done with fraud as they clearly are not what they say they are the biggest club in world has become the biggest laughing stock in world now.

4.) 02 Oct 2020 10:41:55
Grimslives, is there even a strategy? Even amateurs will do better than these guys. The more apt term for these guys is Novice at best.

I know Hannibal only got 10-15 minutes yesterday but you can just tell what a terrific footballer he is and how he's always thinking one step ahead. He just looks the part and i think he will make the breakthrough next season and will be a brilliant player for Man United in the future.


1.) 24 May 2021 10:10:25
I know what you mean sim, he looks a really intelligent footballer and technically gifted. We have some real gems in the youth setup.

P. s what a header by Elanga also eh!

2.) 24 May 2021 10:39:35
He looked very skillful and composed.
Shows how good some academy players could be.
Would be best if we move on Jesse, Pereira and mata to let mejbri get 10-15 games next season.
Given how we usually struggle against wolves side, I think the guys played really well apart from first choice CF their team was still their best.
Its been ages since I saw a performance from midfield like Donny played. Its all too negative from mctom and fred.



14 May 2021 09:13:58
If there was any proof that a new central midfielder was needed just watch last nights game. Fred was absolutely diabolical. Can't control a ball, takes far to many touches and looses possession and his passing was beyond bad last night.
It also highlights just how important Harry Maguire is, defensively we were all over the place.
We actually looked ok for the first 15-20 minutes, scored the goal and completely collapsed.
Embarrassing performance and it hurts even more knowing what was at stake.


1.) 14 May 2021 11:13:41
How important Harry is? Really? We’ve sunk so low that he is a major loss? Ye gods and little fishes. Heard it all now but that deserves a biscuit!

2.) 14 May 2021 11:52:26
Scooby - I will have a jammy dodger please. Get a grip, he clearly was missed last night, we were a complete shambles without him. Take your (i hate Harry Maguire) glasses off and analyse the game properly. Any one with half a brain could see that.

We really missed Harry last night, he has been good this season.

Is it time for Henderson to get a proper run in the team now so he can show us what he can do?


1.) 08 Feb 2021 14:45:46
sim01975, I would love Henderson to be given a run of games as you say as he is a much more complete GK than DeGea and would help our defense immensely.

Although his inexperience would mean he would make some mistakes, the bigger worry for me is how our defense is being coached to defend at the moment and could in turn put more pressure on him and he could end up never finding his feet at the club as first choice.

2.) 08 Feb 2021 14:49:00
It was his turn to see what he could do at the start of the season.

last season Henderson saved 11 goals that he wasn't expected to according to the xGA stats, where as DDG made 3. While Henderson made more saves, was more accurate with his distribution, and made more penalty saves in his one season in the EPL than DDG has managed in 5 years.

In every aspect of measuring a goalkeepers performance Henderson outperformed DDG last season. He was due a run this year.

3.) 10 Feb 2021 09:09:26
He done nothing wrong last night .
there has been an out cry on here about Dvb not playing but he looked out of sorts again . I don't think he has adjusted yet and I don't think we have adjusted to him yet .
I think its like I said a while ago people need to be patient, a few have put an unrealistic expectation on him .
Williams showed a face at RB again he might get a bit of a look in.



28 Jan 2021 09:59:33
Shocking team selection by Ole.

Why did he pick Matic? the slowest most clumsy midfielder at the club who can't run, can't pass and has a turning circle of the Titanic?

Why did he pick Telles when Shaw is in the form of his life?

Why did he pick Martial AGAIN over Cavani and more importantly how did Martial stay on that pitch for the full 90 minutes?

Why did he pick Pogba to play so far back so he can't influence the game. Do we really need 2 defensive midfielders to play at home against the bottom club Sheffield United?

It was absolutely shocking by Ole and once again highlights his lack of management/ coaching skills.
He then has the cheek to complain about two of the decisions that went against us. Have a look at yourself Ole and your pathetic team selection.

I also have to say that the team were very poor as a whole, there was some shocking performances on that pitch last night. they need to take a good luck at themselves because that was just embarrassing.


1.) 28 Jan 2021 10:33:33
Ah c`mon, it wasn't that bad. We only got beat by the worst team in the league who themselves were missing six players and had a 38 year old centre back. 😂😂.

2.) 28 Jan 2021 11:10:29
I don't think team selection was the problem.
On paper this was the easiest fixture, therefore it was a wise decision to rest Shaw and Cavani (who has a bad injury record) .

The problem was lethargy, sloppiness and taking things for granted. There was a lack of fight and desire.
A game to forget.

3.) 28 Jan 2021 11:23:31
He had one eye on the Arsenal game. I do t think we are in a position tk be dropping Cavani and playing Martial.

It woikd have been good tk see Vdb, pogba and Brunno in a midfield 3.

Tuanzebe was rusty due to a lack of games. Both he and vdb woukd be playing better football if they had more ample game time.

4.) 28 Jan 2021 11:41:46
If you can't see that was the wrong selection TRD then i give up.

5.) 28 Jan 2021 11:50:41

Easy to say in hindsight isn't it, I thought he was right to give players a rest like he has been doing all season, not like Matic hasn't played in the unbeaten run. It is the 1st league defeat since 1st November, almost 3 months, let's not overreact.

6.) 28 Jan 2021 15:22:38
I thought Matic played well, the only selection I was unhappy with was Martial as he has been poor, we had Pogba and Bruno in the pitch but Bruno had another stinker, and that’s Ole’s fault right?



13 Jan 2021 12:09:12
Gary Neville drove me insane last night going on about the tackle by Luke Shaw. It clearly was a foul by Shaw, that i am not disputing but Neville kept on repeating the same thing over and over again saying "he's not got any touch on the ball, he's in trouble here" when clearly Shaw did get a touch on the ball which basically stopped him from getting a red card.


1.) 13 Jan 2021 13:02:45
Gary Neville has this tendency to be over-biased against Utd so that he can't be accused of being biased in UTD's favour. Unfortunately this leads him getting it wrong on a lot of occasions.

2.) 13 Jan 2021 13:31:16
I was just going to post getting sick of Gary Neville's commentary. Sometimes you think he's a Liverpool supporter.

3.) 13 Jan 2021 13:34:54
He was shocking last night, i had to mute the sound in the end until he finished his sill little rant. Talk about being over biased is an understatement.

4.) 13 Jan 2021 14:55:06
He apologised on twitter, said the producer and Stockley Park was in his ear and he knew he wasn't very good. He is usually fine, last night was so weird from him at times.

5.) 13 Jan 2021 16:01:47
It was like he couldn’t see what we could all see. ‘He didn’t get the ball’. Yes he did Gary.

He’s a game away from saying ole was offside in 99.

8.) 13 Jan 2021 16:27:28
G Nev was doing my head in yesterday too.

I also think his Co Comms are nowhere near as good than when he started out.

Danny Higginbotham is #1 for me.

9.) 13 Jan 2021 17:07:46
Neville's 'he didn't get the ball' comment was really winding me up as clearly he did! A faint touch and appreciate momentum then went into the Burnley player but there was no malice in that and I thought it was grossly unfair to give a yellow. Especially when you consider Brady's more obvious red / denial of clear goalscoring opportunity was then negated. I think that and Maguire's goal disallowed were both suspect. I appreciate there was a handball shout against Maguire also and obviously Pogba's winner was deflected. Though I'd still say Burnley had more luck in that game.

It was a great win. Actually played quite well in the second half and there only looked like being one winner.

Winning last night was actually more important than the Liverpool game if only because we were expected to win. let's be honest we have had great results recently bar the City cup game but could've easily dropped 4 points against Wolves and Villa based on how we played. So last night was return to a game we really deserved to win.

Obviously the Liverpool game is massive. But we can get beat (as most would expect at the start of the season) and still be second potentially.

It is such a fascinating title race this year and we are definitely in it. That said I think, City, Liverpool, Everton, Leicester and Spurs are all in it too.

I think City have a few easy games now and expect they will be top come end of the month and probably in May also. We just have to keep grinding out results though.

10.) 13 Jan 2021 17:08:54
I was surprised Neville didn't mention how fantastic Leeds were in defeat as well.

Definitely a no from me, if your chasing City and want to compete with Liverpool and Chelsea Neves doesn't take you up to that next level.
Kane, Rice, Sancho and a centre back.
If we get all 4 i think we can challenge for the prem next season.

Halesini - that's asking a lot.
I truly think if we replace Pogba with a top midfielder as well as bringing in Varane and Sancho represents a good transfer window.
I truly believe that Hannibal should be brought through this year, this kid oozes class. He's a top passer of the ball, extremely cool in position and can create chances and is always positive with the ball. I am really hoping that Ole gives him a chance this year.

What is this infatuation with Paul Pogba being world class it's just ridiculous. Messi is world class, Ronaldo is world class, Zidane was world class, Brazilian Ronaldo was world class, Maradona was world class to name a few. World class just gets thrown about to much these days.

Paul Pogba will take the easy way out, sign for PSG and get an absolute fortune out of it and play in a tin pot league which will make him look like a billion dollar player then all will be good in the world of Paul Pogba.
