Went to Old Trafford yesterday and wanted to buy a home kit with Valencia #7 on it only to be advised by staff that I should wait as it looks like Valencia won't be waering no 7 next year? Take that as you will. I presume it measn Valencia will be sold rather than us buy an iconic no 7.



1.) If true, fair enough but I saw a few things on tw****r saying the same stuff so I doubt this is true.

2.) If that's true, I know everyone will expect someone like Thaigo, or A and other potential newcomer to get the infamous shirt.

Personally, and it might be controversial, I would like to see Kagawa get the #7. The lad is very talented, bags of flair, applies himself in the right way (role model) and I personally think with his personality he'll thrive with the responsibility of taking on the shirt.


WF Red Devil

3.) Odd that as you can still order a shirt with his name along with number 7 on the back.
Also why would someone in the store know about our possible deals before others?
One bad season doesn't mean hell be sold. Don't forget he also played right back due to injuries.
I can think of 4 other players I'd get rig of before him


4.) Great post Tucker. Its posts like this, that make this a great site. Not the usual, Eds do you know this guy or Eds blah blah blah,


5.) Why would you want Valencia on your back?


6.) Could it be possible that Valencia could wearing the number 2 jersey
rock the red

7.) I called the Megastore this morning to check if this is actually true.
They said they have not advised anyone not to buy a kit with Valencia 7 on the back, that they have no idea where this rumour has come from!
furthermore, they insisted that they would not know about a transfer before anyone else did!

Mattchester United

8.) Never mind. we are still waiting for 2 guys in black suit entering old trefford rumour.


9.) Good news in my opinion. The shirt has been devalued enough by giving it to stupid long punts already. Owen we knew was past it. Valencia may have had a good season a few years ago, but its clear he was at the top of his game at that time, and he still wasnt world class.

uniteds 7 deserves more respect. We have van persie in the squad, I don't see why we didn't give it to him last year.

10.) Funny that the Megastore at OT was still selling them this morning when I got my lads RVP one.

11.) Maybe they are giving it to Rooney? a sign to tell him he is valued at the club? just a thought

12.) Are we honestly meant to believe that you tried to order a shirt with Valencia's name on the back yesterday?

I do hope that Thiago and Strootman deals are completed. Think that would be 2 first class additions to our squad and would change our dynamic as the wingers haven't been cutting it. With kagawa, Carrick and those 2 we'd be a tidy unit with some steel in the middle.

13.) Smells like utter bull as it is a shop selling merchandise, still would love to see a new number 7, young talented player signed who could fill the jersey, someone to take away the stain of giving the thing to Owen which even typing it makes me feel ill
Invisible STuey

14.) Try ordering it online then via the Megastore, you can get Valencia 7 then!

I know the rumours are we have got over £100m to spend but I found a list of players out of contract this summer and I feel a couple could help strengthen our squad. There a more obviously but these are the better ones imo.
The list is as follows:-
1. Khedira
2. Chiellini
3. Rabiot
4. Schar
5. Yarmolenko
6. Uchida
7. Kaboul
8. Milner
9. Vlaar
10. Dejong
11. Huntelaar
12. alves

I think one or two may have signed new contracts but couldn't find any reports, anyway out of the 12 players I could find i'd take a gamble on:-

1. Konoplanka a good winger with pace and scores a few.
2. Khedira A good replacement for Carrick when injured depends on his fitness really but a good defensive midfielder.
3. Alves Just because he would be better than Valencia at RB and that's not his fault he's a winger. But could add something to the counter attack.
4. De Jong for some steel when the game is getting tough.

Who would you guys take if any or anyone else to be far?

Hope we buy some real top quality as we need it to catch Chelsea although I don't think they are that good, they've been more consistent and everyone else hasn't, like us a few seasons back the league, although more entertaining has been relatively poor standard.


1.) 23 May 2015 20:00:39
Chiellini and Buffon both signed new deals. Rabiot I think did sign too, I am not sure.
Younes Kaboul? Are you kidding me? He was so awful for spurs this season.
Schar could be a decent CB, but do we need another squad player?
De Jong would be a good buy IMO, only if we fail to sign schweni, Gundogan, vidal etc. Only Herrera and Carrick the midfielders with Blind and Fellaini. At least one preferably two are needed for midfield.
Khedira? What's the point of a player who goes 6 months missing every season?
Alves is brilliant while attacking, but it could turn out to be a Maicon like signing in my opinion. Although I would still prefer him over Clyne. Coleman would be the one I would love to have.

2.) 23 May 2015 21:08:17
Most are pretty decent players, but the only two I would take is Rabiot from PSG and Schar from Basel is it? Both we could get for a fairly reasonable price too?

3.) 23 May 2015 22:44:43
Gundogen and vidal if we want to compete with garay and otamendi at the back with benezema



11 Mar 2015 19:01:36
Right I know at the start of the season we had terrible defensive injuries however we now have virtually all available so can anyone enlighten me why Rafa Da Silva isn't starting at right back with Smalling and Rojo at CB and Blind or Shaw at left back? Valencia is not a defender end of hence the silly mistakes he gets caught out on, not his fault mind. Play Rafa two years ago best rb in the league according to his fellow pros team of the year, then play Rooney and mata in the hole with ADM and AY on wing Carrick and Herrera in cm surely this is our best starting 11 until we buy a quality CB (Hummells, Varane or Subotic) quality CM Carvahlo, Vidal or Cabaye a couple of strikers if Hernandez leaves and possible RVP, I'd look at Mandukic or Lazcette with Berinho or ings as back up?

What is peoples thinking at the mo?
BTW LVG to stay on at least another year.


1.) 11 Mar 2015 19:54:22
Who knows what players will come through the door next season Tucker. I feel we need a completely new spine throughout the team unless someone dramatically steps up in the next few weeks.

We have been linked with every name under the sun but I feel much will depend on if the manager stays in place and if we get into the CL. It will be an interesting pre season and I for one want nothing more to be competing with the best in Europe under the lights at old Trafford next year.

2.) 11 Mar 2015 21:37:48
Tucker, you are indeed da man, I agree with 1 up top and a no 10, 2 CMs and 2 wide players. However, this is far too straight forward for LVG who is far more developed than the simplistic approach. Keep up man

3.) 11 Mar 2015 22:52:33
Ajh you just can't beat a fluid 3133

4.) 11 Mar 2015 23:10:27
LVG has waited all the way till the last few weeks to play a common sense formation with wingers. He needs to stick with a clear idea, develop understanding between players in one system, so we can play quicker.

Look at Chelsea in the last 12 months. As JMB said about our spine, look at who they have added: Matic at DM, Fabregas at CM, Costa at CF, much stronger spine.



25 May 2014 10:15:47
Why o why is everyone panicking about signing this player that player, don't believe everything you read in the red tops and on twitter! Kroos was never coming to us nor will robben or muller and why would they, leave one of the best teams in Europe to come to a team not in UCL, they won't there will be players that will but not these, I see Fabregas maybe Claise or Strootman along with Shaw and Caulker LVG will know exactly who is in his plans at the squad and those he has identified, but I don't think he would of heard of the likes of James McCarthy never mind wanting to buy him. So let's not panic just yet and see what comes in June/July!
Certainly won't be as bad as the last two transfer windows.


1.) Can't see Caulker here. Hummels is his main target, then I think we could turn to Indi or Badstuber.

2.) "Why o why". Have I strayed into an old episode of Points of View?

3.) Ah, good old Points of View, the original forum for people with way too much time on their hands.

Always wondered who, 'Disgusted from Tunbridge Wells' was :)

4.) Ajh I usually like your posts but the above just made me think of Anne Robinson. Its put me right off my lunch

5.) Bookredmole, is that who presents it now? Unfortunately me and AJH are of an age where we remember the original presenter, Barry Took.

But thanks for putting me off my lunch now, too.

Just after your opinions about Louis Suarez now take of our red devil glasses before we start, I've got a load of spouse fans at work and they are saying he is worth over100m? My reply was if he is worth that then what is Messi or Ronaldo and their response was he is already better? Good job I was sat down or I might of fell down lol I said that Suarez has had 18 months of good football Messi and Ronaldo have been performing at that level for the last 8-10 seasons, not 1 and abit. Am I wrong thinking this? He is good just no where near as good as the other two in my opinion.
What u think guys?


1.) Suarez is a £50m player. But it would probably take £60m-£65m for Liverpool to part with him.

2.) That's funny Sydney, because I seem to remember you giving it that Suarez would leave for £30m, was it, last Summer.
Better just to stay away from Liverpool predictions, you make Moyes look good.

3.) Sure, I thought that if RM came in for him last summer, Liverpool would sell for between £35m-£40m. But luckily for you RM never went in for him.

4.) He would be worth that if his teeth didn't keep playing him offside!

5.) Ha ha have to agree with pancho.

6.) I hate these discussions about what a player is worth.
Its pointless as if you look at someone like Andy Carroll he was sold for 35m, yet Yohan Cabaye was sold for 20m. Both players were sold by the same club, yet the better player was sold for significantly less.

Players are only worth what someone will pay for them and what the selling club will accept for them.

In the current market and with Liverpools strong position atm I would expect Suarez to go for around the 65-70m mark, but it could be much more or less depending on the circumstances at the time.

Personally I feel a player is worth what a club pay him. People say how players are paid huge wages, but the counter argument is that is what the player is worth to the club.

So if a club pay a player 10m a year over a 5 year contract then the club feel that the player is worth 50m. Like wise if he only has 3 years left on his 10m a year contract then he should cost around 30m. That is what I feel is fair to pay for a player. But what clubs pay is never fair. lol

7.) Did not know suarez never played good football before 18 months ago, guess he never scored 50 goals in one season in the dutch leauge or he never played great for his country before, most fans worldwide rate him up their as the best in the game, if he was a utd player sid would be looking to sell for over 100 million, if people don't know this, they don't know much abut football.

8.) True words from Shappy.

If RM paid £85m for Bale they'd probably pay about £50-60m for Suarez. Personally I think Bale last season was better than Suarez this season, overall he's the better player.

9.) Lfc, personally I prefer Aguero. £38m is what Aguero cost City.

10.) 08 Apr 2014 13:28:14
both players are on the same level sid, only suarez does not pick up as many injurys, if psg or real came looking to buy either player, they would have to part with 100 million for each player.

11.) Lfc, Aguero is RM's first choice. Suarez is second choice. Aguero is worth around £50m IMO. But I expect him to sign a new deal with City.

12.) After the last couple of seasons Suarez is right up there with the best about .
Add to that the fact he us vital to liverpool and would say it would take 70/80 mil for the scouse to sell

13.) Ozwald, Bale better last year than Suarez this year? Bale got 23 goals, Suarez already had 29 and on top of this he also tops the assist board with 11 assist's, Suarez is far superior to Bale and if Suarez does leave in the summer it'll be for £100m+ which has been inked into his contract.

Sydney, you said he would leave for £30m last summer, we wouldn't of sold him for £40m even if RM did bid for him, you also said Agger, Skrtel, Lucas and Reina would all be sold, you're absolutely clueless so please give it a rest.

14.) Plymouth, I never even discussed Lucas. The others were all surplus in the summer. All could have been sold if they received acceptable bids. I think Liverpool would have sold Suarez to RM for £40m. I just don't think they would have sold him for that to a rival. The editor has already confirmed that Liverpool were bracing themselves for a RM bid and Costa would have been his replacement.

15.) 09 Apr 2014 12:57:46
Lfc, Kezman scored 45goals in Dutch league so that shows how strong that league is. I'm not saying he isn't a top player just not as good as the other two and hasn't performed to their level for the same amount of time. For me he is 75-80mill player on today's valuations however know player is worth 1mill never mind 100+mill. But this is where we are and I suppose and I still wouldn't be surprised if he wears the white of Madrid next season, and as much as I hate lfc it would be a shame to lose another top player from the EPL



03 Mar 2014 12:39:09
Watching the AVFC Vrs NCFC game yesterday and I was thinking that we are in need of a good left back, does anyone think that we should have a cheap sneaky bid for M Olsson loads of prem experience, Youngish 25, international Quick good at going forward and defending also scores a few and can play centre back if required.

Just a thought I think i'd rather pay 5-10m for him than 25-30m for Baines or Shaw even though they are good players don't think they would be 3 times the player.

Anyone agree?


1.) 03 Mar 2014 13:20:08
Didn't Norwich concede 4 against a villa team who's been pish most of the season, I'll pass thanks. If we had to go prem, other than Shaw i'd go for the lad at swansea.

2.) Yes, Flores would fit in well with the present standard.

this game reminded me of when we lost 3 nil to spurs having had 3 great chances to be 3 up, it happens from what i saw a 1nil utd would of been fair, but that's football chelsea were naive pushing for an equaliser and got caught out simple as.
I agree a city etc would of punished us but we will hopefully play better as the season goes on.

Id rather Eddie Howe personally i know he's not a popular choice as he's not a big name with a foreign surname, however he has built a club at Bournmouth that is playing very attractive football and he has built this club from L 2 up to the premier league. I just think he would bring our identity back for using the youth set up and playing the attacking flowing football we all want to see. To be honest nothing will happen until we cannot qualify for champions league as this cost the club and that's all the owners care about, we have an inept ceo a manager that won't change his ways and 15 players in the squad that are no better than mid table, all this together means we are where we are in the league for this reason.

As much as I'd love lewandowski it's never going to happen and looking at the squad believe we we will only be playing with one striker which in all likely hood will be Rooney and the likes of RL Kane etc won't come and sit on the bench we need a good back up perhaps a youngster like Berinho? Or even a Charlie Austin I know there no where near wc but would do a great job, but I feel that LVG won't buy a striker he will use Rooney, Wilson, dephay, and wait for it Fellaini. Hope I'm wrong but I'd be surprised if he bought one.

11 Jul 2015 23:36:13
I think Fellaini will be used as a striker not a midfielder this year to be honest back up to Rooney also with Wilson and Hernandez making the four unless Hernandez is sold then we might purchase another

I personally think Begovic is a great shout very good all round gk with loads of prem experience meant to have a buy out clause of 8m if ECL team make an offer so also buy Leno will be a top class gk

It's about time he had a decent run even if it means loaning Wilson out for the season then make a judgement on him. He had a great season and did ok in copa America as a sub. Defo keep him for now

I like what Kane did last season, but let's be honest it's the only decent season he has ever had. His stats show prior to this season he didn't score many and was used as a target man. So let's see how his second season goes before making a good judgement. Had a good season as I said but would u take him over Rooney or even a fit RVP no chance.

personally I really don't see Clyne or Coleman as any better than Raphael he was RB of the year two seasons ago if he can stay fit he will be just as good as the two mentioned. If they are looking to buy homegrown what about Walker from spurs cheaper option. But the mention of Darmain is a good shout or Carvajal from real in ddg deal??

Bale on he left and The Ox on the right. Will never happen but I'd love to see this.
