I'm starting to think that LVG might have some hidden cards in his pocket, that the media no nothing about. Remember Di Maria and Falcao last year. Just that any transfers that happen at the last moment will not be good for the players themselves, because the season will be well started and they will have to fit in as fast as possible. I'm expecting one more signing excluding Pedro's arrival that for me is imminent.


1.) 17 Aug 2015 12:07:45
I think you could be right, he has most likely hidden the club credit cards in his pocket because since going on tour we have sold our most expensive player and replaced him with a free keeper.

2.) 17 Aug 2015 12:27:49
I truly hope so, I wanted ADM gone for reasons I've stated numerous times BUT I hoped it would mean the club bought a wide right forward which hasn't happened yet. Also I wanted RVP and Falcao gone, again in the hope of seeing another striker brought in.

I'm going to be careful what I wish for in future, hopefully the club comes good by the end of the window though!

My wide forward pick has always been Berardi, absolute goal threat, getting better and better each year. Quite a few Journalists have picked him to get the Capocannoniere.

For the Striker position I'm stuck, I always thought Mitovic suited what LVG wants from his striker, strong, quick, good movement, can create for himself and also hold the ball up and link play. I just can't think of a player, at the right age with those qualities. It's obvious Rooney is struggling but the others in the squad haven't had a chance so I would assume he doesn't trust them. Hopefully they get someone we can get excited about.

3.) 17 Aug 2015 12:41:06
Why is nobody going after Reus? I don't specifically mean us (though I would love to see him at United!), but I haven't heard of anyone bidding for him?

4.) 17 Aug 2015 13:04:10
i hope so too. LVG has done a lot right in getting rid of the deadwood (Anderson, Cleverly etc) instilling confidence in the players and being more positive than Moyes and he made some solid signings. however its baffling that we don't have a new CB or a striker. i know there is still 2 weeks to rectify this but after doing such a good job with sorting the midfield out i figured a CB and ST would be not far behind. LVG coming out and saying Rooney and Blind are guarenteed starters is a bad idea in my opinion as with no competion and a guarenteed start Rooney has no incentive to improve. i feel LVG is not going to sign a CB and stick with Blind who he seems to rate rather highly, perhaps he hopes he will turn into the player his father was? sadly he seems nothing more than a decent squad player

the whole De Gea thing is a mess too and needs to be sorted ASAP. Romero has done well but i'm not convinced he will help us to trophies

5.) 17 Aug 2015 13:16:41
Who could have predicted that Ramos would sign a new deal, and say I never wanted to leave this club.
I hate Real Madrid.
Eds have Utd tried throwing silly money at De Gea to get him stay, every penny would be worth it to see that lot miss out?
Do you think Utd will try and keep what they have at the back with Blind, Smalling, Rojo and Jones?
There was also talk of Lewandowski being touted around a month or so ago, would a big bid get him or do bayern want to keep him.
Despite the signings we have made, all good and needed, it will feel poor if we don't add more come the end if the window.

6.) 17 Aug 2015 14:57:32
Man city 2 games 6 goals scored. man utd 2 games 1 goal scored and one own goal. Think it'd obvious were we are going to struggle if not soon rectified.Don't know if it's players not wanting to play under van gaal or we are not the draw we once we're for these so called superstars, either way we need some clout up front. Van Gaal is getting more arrogant by the day and I recall Bobby Charlton not wanting Jose Mourhino because of his arrogance and how he would damage the club. Van Gaal is doing the same with his slow ball style of football. The sooner he gets his pension the better. and to top it all looks like Otemendi is off to city. Ed. please have a word and explain that the fans are getting despondent.

7.) 17 Aug 2015 15:46:11

You can judge everything from 2 games? Fantastic, we are better than Chelsea.

8.) 17 Aug 2015 20:23:47
Maybe deals are hinging on us getting into champions league ? I know we are all fairly confident we will beat Brugge but anything can happen. Once qualified may see some major deals late on

9.) 17 Aug 2015 20:58:21
Be fair, Rock, you cannot compare Mourinho with LVG. Van Gaal might be direct, blunt, even stubborn and headstrong, but he is not near the levels of arrogance of Mourinho, let alone obnoxious and disrespectful, or a sore loser.



16 Aug 2015 12:52:33
So, Otamendi off, but REPORTS say City are ahead of United. Shame, shame.


1.) 16 Aug 2015 13:26:43
Big shame. Must not be better than evans, mcnair, Jones or blind otherwise we would have signed him considering lvg said he would sign anyone available who is better than what he has

2.) 16 Aug 2015 14:01:30
Or we don't value him at the price being asked? Or other possible reasons? No, those reasons won't let people whine.

3.) 16 Aug 2015 15:03:55
Personally I don't think he's worth the money being banded around. If we were serious he'd have been in weeks ago. We haggled a bit on Morgan and Darmian but still got the deals closed as we wanted the players.

4.) 16 Aug 2015 15:30:00
Agree Imightbe. I'm certain LVG wanted Ramos or Hummels as first choice due to them being so comfortable on the ball. I don't believe we will pay up for Otamendi and will let City take him.

5.) 16 Aug 2015 16:02:24
Is hummels not an option still? Maybe waiting for us to confirm CL Status?

6.) 16 Aug 2015 16:54:01
He wants to stay at dortmund

7.) 16 Aug 2015 17:01:32
We may well have been in for him, it looked like we were in for him early in the window than this Ramos farce started.If you were Otamendi and a club basically wanted another player and made u a back up option then another team came in who would you choose. If city do sign him they look a very good bet for the league already. Not many of our squad would push for a place in that team apart from Darmian and Shaw at the moment. Think the rest of the top teams will be praying for Aguero to be sidelined for a long periods this season as that the looks like the only thing that can upset that side.

8.) 16 Aug 2015 17:38:11
We obviously are not getting a CB great news , not!
Everyone can see we need one and a striker

9.) 16 Aug 2015 22:11:45
Think about it lads every player we've been connected to this summer somebody connected with the club has come out and confirmed it
I've only heard people from the club deny were intersted in otamendi we never in for him. So this talk that we've been hijacked is paper talk.

10.) 17 Aug 2015 09:01:48
From what I've heard from very reliable source is that United were willing to pay as much as City, but City offer was + Mangala, so Valencia accepted City and not United's. BUT to Otamendi would have chosen United. This is what I know. I'm just wondering why City are letting go Mangala, who just settled at the club and IMO yesterday he was outstanding against Chelsea.

11.) 17 Aug 2015 10:27:34
Ziko mate, if we paid the buyout clause and otamendi was in favour of us, there is nothing the club could have done. I think we refused to pay the buy out amount and hence citeh got him. Only time will whether the move was good. Personally i'm always skeptical about defenders from la liga.But i would have loved him in the side instead of blind.

12.) 17 Aug 2015 12:12:31
No, no, mate, City and United's offers were close to equal, but not close to his buyout clause. I think his buyout was something like €50m and the offers were about 40, just city's + Mangala (that's according to reports). And now a new twist appeared, Mangala doesn't want to go on loan or City won't let him go, so now the deal is in the air. I really hope United can manage to get him, but I'm 99% sure he'll end up at the other end.

13.) 17 Aug 2015 14:16:40
Last year we passed on Mangala abad this year it looks like we ae passing on Ottamendi for valuation reasons.

14.) 17 Aug 2015 18:38:39
Perhaps Stones is now a target. Better value for money than otamendi due to age/English.

Not the ready made solution everyone is craving for but probably a better bet for the medium/longer term. We can blow Chelsea out of the water financially on this one if the club want it to happen.



05 Aug 2015 19:35:40
I hear Pedro is done.Small details between the clubs to be finalized. Pedro is coming. Depay - Rooney - Pedro it is ! Not sure if will play on Saturday though.


1.) 05 Aug 2015 20:20:19
I think Wazza Pedro and Depay front 3, Herrera behind with carrick and schniderln holdind midfield, would scare the crap out any team! :) Hopefully herrera gets a chance to pull the strings

2.) 06 Aug 2015 09:34:18
You heard wrong then. It is all down to the player reports that he had agreed terms etc with United were false but if he wants the move it will happen.

3.) 06 Aug 2015 11:14:50
Exactly opposite, Pedro agreed terms, just waiting for the bid for United to trigger the deal. Even Guillem Balague reported it today, so don't say I heard wrond.

4.) 06 Aug 2015 12:09:10
You did hear wrong, I wasn't saying it will not happen I am saying nobody has agreed anything yet. Balague didn't report it today it was on the radio yesterday and he didn't say Pedro has agreed terms anyway, try reading what he actually said.

5.) 06 Aug 2015 12:40:04
Di Maria's departure to be confirmed in the next few hours (£44.2m agreed 29th July). MUFC and Pedro agreed terms but no offer to FCB. yet

This is what he wrote on his Twitter today. And it just confirms what I've HEARD yesterday.



24 Jul 2015 08:52:39
I read a very reliable source that Romero is done. First choice or Valdes replacement ? I hope it's the second one. And IMO he is a better keeper than Valdes.


1.) 24 Jul 2015 10:33:08
It will be to replace Valdes for sure.



23 Jun 2015 13:53:54
So, now Lpool are favorites to sign Fermino.It was us, then Shity, now pool. Eds any real info about who is closer ?!


{Ed004's Note - None all three clubs appear interested in him. Can't see why City would want both Sterling and Firmino}

1.) 23 Jun 2015 15:06:03
There's a bit of info about him on the scousers page, basically all 3 clubs are willing to pay the fee for him but at the moment no one has agreed the "conditions".

If we sign Austin and he proves me wrong for saying he's an average player, I'll come here and publicly apologies to him !


1.) 30 Aug 2015 21:20:58
He got 18 goals in the league last year in a very poor side, some brilliant finishes, don't see why everyone's slating him just because he's never been given the chance at a big club.

2.) 30 Aug 2015 22:22:26
is Austin any better than Hernandez?



28 Aug 2015 10:26:05
At last we have some new rumours. Anderson, Draxler, Robben in, De Gea out.




26 Aug 2015 12:10:28
It's too quiet. Do you feel the storm coming ?


1.) 26 Aug 2015 12:53:39
I've got my transfer mac at the ready!

2.) 26 Aug 2015 13:29:45
Ziko you are obviously desperate for transfers but it is unlikely now, expect nothing and be pleasantly surprised if there is something.



25 Aug 2015 11:12:45
One thing I like after the Pedro move is that the media is out of news regarding Man United :) Which is good if we're planning to sign someone. The Neymar stories are like a cherry on top of a shit.


1.) 25 Aug 2015 11:31:25
The Neymar story is not completely fabricated to be fair, it is never going to happen but there are half truths to be found in that story.

2.) 25 Aug 2015 12:04:11
The half truth being that neymar wants a better deal.

3.) 25 Aug 2015 12:06:38
Love the analysis of the Neymar story. Cheers for that it made me laugh!

4.) 25 Aug 2015 12:07:37
I don't see one truth in that story. As all comes out because someone's agent is at a stadium. First and last Barca can't play new players till January, so anybody can tell you that Barca can't even consider selling him, a part from that I'm sure Neymar wouldn't want to go either, so I really can't see who would imagine Neymar being offloaded. Next thing you'll see is we bid £500m for Messi.

5.) 25 Aug 2015 13:04:27
No its true. Neymar was all but signed. £158.6 million fee agreed. £456,000 a week wages (after tax) agreed. £18.5 million agents fees agreed.

But The player decided against the move after hearing how badly LvG had treated Victor Valdes.

6.) 25 Aug 2015 13:33:26
You have no clue as usual
Its because of lvg's extreme training methods

7.) 25 Aug 2015 14:23:48
imightbe, bit harsh mate. No clue as usual?

Truth is , we would never sign him because we are sponsored by Adidas , and Neymar the Nike poster boy.

Now stick that in your pipe and smoke it!!

8.) 25 Aug 2015 15:15:26
I can't imagine in a board meeting at Barca they said something along the lines of well if we won the treble last season we're obviously too good and need to sell one of our best players. You can tell he loves playing there and they have no reason to sell it's a non starter and i'm surprised its gone on for this long already.

9.) 25 Aug 2015 15:31:50
It has absolutely nothing to do with the agent that was present at Old Trafford Ziko.

10.) 25 Aug 2015 16:33:38
I'm not sure I'm in the PROCESS of sharing your PHILOSOPHY on this topic!!



23 Aug 2015 22:03:55
Well, as we are in the final week of the transfer window, I'd like to ask all Man United fans on here who do you expect United will sign ( just names, without any explanation and jokes, be serious please). As I'm totally out of ideas I'll say Benzema or Ibrahimovic. Now you GO -


1.) 23 Aug 2015 22:11:21
Ibra and Lucas Moura

2.) 23 Aug 2015 22:20:17
If we overpay we may get Mane. But honestly I'm not sure if we'll see any new faces. More likely that we'll see Evans and two of our keepers in the stands leave.

3.) 23 Aug 2015 22:35:02
Wednesday is massive. We qualify and I think we will see a surprise signing. I think Zlatan but perhaps another surprise. Think Wednesday is bigger than just qualifying for the champions league, could determine the shape of our season based on 1 maybe 2 signings.

4.) 23 Aug 2015 22:52:51
No one

5.) 23 Aug 2015 22:53:56
Oh wait. Sjnieder and gaitan

6.) 23 Aug 2015 23:04:39
Hulk and Berahinho

7.) 23 Aug 2015 23:13:45

8.) 23 Aug 2015 23:23:26
The window should be shut before the first game starts,don't think we will sign anyone

9.) 23 Aug 2015 23:23:43
I've been saying one name for months.

10.) 23 Aug 2015 23:25:32
No one. But hope muller and bale.

11.) 23 Aug 2015 23:32:06
I'm hoping for Berahino and Mane, both premier league experience but I think it's going to end up being Neymar and Muller now

12.) 23 Aug 2015 23:47:27
Would like Zlatan but can't see it after falling out with LVG I can't see either of them being the build bridges type. expect loads of rumours of muller or bale and we will then probably sign Berahino

13.) 23 Aug 2015 23:54:50
Messi and Vlaar.

14.) 24 Aug 2015 07:01:12
Nobody for me

15.) 24 Aug 2015 07:39:13
GREIZMANN AND FELIPE ANDERSON would be exceptional additions to the squad! We could also have an option of letting Januzaj go to Dortmund on loan in exchange for the purchase of Reus?

16.) 24 Aug 2015 08:11:51
Vlaar, pato/llorente/IBRA and bale

17.) 24 Aug 2015 09:11:29
If we end up with Berahino alone, then 4th spot is no guaranteed.
If we end up selling Evans and dave gea and buying Berahino for around £15m (not worth £5m in my opinion) then our net spend will be more or less NIL. So much for the £150m the club were going to spend.
But I'm still hopeful that we will bring in a top striker and winger. If lewandawaski (£40m) and greizman (£56m) are available then I will be on the plane to Munich and Madrid this morning. It all depends on the ambition of the club and whether they really want to spend the mega bucks.

18.) 24 Aug 2015 09:22:09
Realistically Berahino
Hopefully Zlatan and Moura
I do however think there will be a signing before this window close. Someone to be unveiled properly in the new kit!

I don't like to use this symbol ">", but Martial > Chicharito. Will do very well in Manchester, had the chance to watch him last season. Stil inconsistent, but very young and very talented. This is the way United do business, sign young talant that people will talk about. And it really surprised me that he's called by the French coach. More transfers please ;)

I have to tell you, the second half of last season Martial played as a striker. But he can play as a winger. I hope he plays there, but players on the pitch have to rotate. Rooney, Martial and Memphis can all do that. Just be patient. He is a good player.

I said this in other post, but I'll write it here too. Martial is young, skillful, fast. Watched him all season, stil inconsistent, but very, very talented. Better than Chicharito for sure. Hope you like my answer.
