Just seen Woy Hodgson getting into a limo with a guy that looked a lot like Eddie Woodward and I swear the other guy was Robbie Savage, all with United scarves and big cheesy grins.

{Ed023's Note - He probably forgot to add the "punch line" to the original post, well it's what I'd like to think anyway}

He must be JMB with another new name :)

While I agree LVG had to go, I still don't agree Mourinho is the man to replace him.

Winning is not enough for Utd, and while the "anti-football" tag was an exageration, and his record with youth isn't ALL bad, I'm a long way from convinced that the football will be any more exciting than it was under LVG, or that players like Rashford, CBJ, TFM etc will make progress under him.

I do believe that he can rein-in his behaviour in front of the media though, which is the third area a lot of people have expressed concern.

It seems certain now that he will be our manager for the next few years, and I hope to be proven wrong about his style of football and youth policy, but I do wish the club would have looked more at other possibilities first.

De Telegraaf reporting that Zlatan has signed. Any insight?

Believable3 Unbelievable1

23 May 2016 15:10:21
Not keen on Ibra. Lacks pace, doesn't offer enough outside the box BUT if it means Jose sees Rashford as first choice in 1-2 years time I think it could be a good signing.

Agree6 Disagree8

23 May 2016 15:23:13
He could be a huge signing for us if this is true, can't believe anything at the moment though, Jose making somebody his first signing before he has even signed himself!

Agree6 Disagree1

23 May 2016 15:52:23
To be fair Sheringham didn't have any pace but worked out well for us.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:21:50
I think there is an over emphasise on pace these days. Particularly with central strikers who should be judged most on their positional and finishing abilities. Van Nistelrooj or Sheringham were both 'slow' by modern standards but still two of the best.

Agree10 Disagree2

23 May 2016 17:28:45
Zlatan is better than any player in our team, De Gea aside.

Agree5 Disagree1

23 May 2016 18:00:49
Can't wait for next season whatever happens.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:31:09
Van nisterlooj was slow?
And you have to have pace as a striker. It's the difference between a kane and a wikham, and it's clear who anyone would pick if given the choice.

Agree4 Disagree6

23 May 2016 21:07:30
Teddy offered a lot more outside the box, linked up play, had fantastic vision and was unselfish. Not sure IBRA had those qualities.

I can see why we would be interested, he could be as good as Sheringham, or Larrson. maybe better and he wouldn't block Rashford or Martial becoming first choice CF for too long.

I'm still torn as to whether I want him or not. I suppose this is the problem if we only play one striker it limits the game time of Rashford and/ or Martial so signing someone like Morata could stall their progress for too long.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 07:51:06
Are we really questioning the quality of Ibra and what he will bring the team. Although I was initially against it because I would like to see Martial be given the CF role, having Ibra will bring a massive boost to all around. He is just class.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 09:22:20

Are you serious comparing him to sheringham and larson? He is world class go look at his assists numbers and maybe you should watch him more often. he has so much more in the bag than any of those guys had. He probably can hit a ball from 35 yards out better than anyone in our current team.

Some of the fans are truly confused, with all the rah rah of martial and Rashford, we scored 49 goals this year. Go check out the stats for the last 10 years for the PL and to be factor in the league you need to score 75 to 85 goals.

Explain to me how we will do that without adding a worldly striker upfront. the same fans will complain come next year when we struggle again to score goals that we should have bought a world class striker.

Rashford is 18 and way too early to burden him with scoring 20 to 25 goals a season.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 May 2016 10:03:05
53 games and 53 goals enough said really.

BBC reporting Blacburn approach Warren Joyce to be their manager and the request is under consideration -whatever that means. huge blow if he goes - very important cog in the machine and I mean that as a huge compliment.

Believable9 Unbelievable0

23 May 2016 12:55:23
Joyce to Rovers, Giggs to replace Joyce?

Agree2 Disagree1

23 May 2016 13:16:41
I'd be surprised to see Giggs stay to be honest WRD. He really needs to fly the nest.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 May 2016 13:19:58
Id hate joyce to go but you raise a good point and I think it was mentioned on the banter page last week - would Giggs see it as such a big demotion that his ego couldn't accept it? or would he see it as a chance to pick players, plan ahead, tactics etc etc which would give him valuable experience . obvioulsy Joyce has caught the eye in the football world why couldn't Giggsy if he did a good job?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 13:48:52
It would be a good job for Giggs; more hands on than an assistant. But I think he will see it as being beneath him.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2016 14:15:45
If he sees mentoring, coaching and helping to improve young Manchester United players as beneath him then he will never be the right man for the top job.

It's the academy that helped make him, you could say he owes them a season or two of service as thanks. that's without even considering it as a stepping stone to further advance his managerial career.

Agree12 Disagree0

23 May 2016 15:53:35
I think it wouldn't be a bad thing to take the U21.
Zidane took the B team of Madrid before becoming the first team manager.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2016 19:33:26
Giggs should take it if offered the job. It's where ole started and look at him now. I'd be surprised if he doesn't return to a club like derby or aston villa or rovers or something.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 22:12:21
Giggs to replace Joyce excuse me but this isn't a game on a PlayStation it's for real Gigi's knows guck all about coaching yet so we need to keep Joyce if anything I would promote him and give him a pay rise, we can't let rovers profit from this mess. Nor can we let carrick join a rival.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 21:10:07
Surely Joyce is too smart to go to Blackburn, disaster of a club since the takeover.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 09:24:47
Giggs needs to go manage elsewhere and shake off the label of underserving and unqualified. If he succeeds elsewhere, there will be no arguments for him to take over someday at United.

The U21 and Real B are very different as the B liga in spain is a proper league.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:13:29
Let Nicky Butt do it, he deserves it more than Giggs and I think he would do a good job.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 10:04:24
LMA lawyer Paul Gilroy has arrived at carrington

Same lawyer who acted on David Moyes behalf apparently.

23 May 2016 10:13:50
And denied access by security.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 10:15:29
oops, small mistake there. he arrived at 0930 to be denied entry, drove off, parked up (made a phone call? ) and returned at 0945 to be let straight in.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:12:39
Van Gaal, Stoltenberg and Frans Hoek are gone. Statement from the club at 1300.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 11:20:58
Security might have said, "you're wearing trainers son, you're not coming in"

23 May 2016 11:47:56
Or i have turned him away because he has a suspect bag in his car.

Maybe Tesco when ASDA are our Supermarket bag sponsor.

22 May 2016 17:43:39
Linked with a £30 million move for Krychowiak - excellent player, good on the ball and solid as a rock. Matic type of player that can actually use the football instead of recycle it. Wouldn't surprise me if this one is true as Jose looks for a solid base to the midfield to replace Carrick.

If it is true, I wonder where it leaves Schneiderlin.

Believable12 Unbelievable6

22 May 2016 17:58:23
I could not agree with you more Fresh. An excellent player who can run box to box all day long and tackles like a freight train with good technical skills on the ball. A definite upgrade on what we have.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2016 20:06:43
Might explain why Carrivk hasn't been offered a new contract and might just see Schweinsteiger leave as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 20:22:11
Krychowiak, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and Herrera are four decent options I'd say. I expect Herrera will get a lot of game time unless someone like Kroos arrived.

Jim White has linked us heavily with Benatia too.

Agree5 Disagree2

22 May 2016 21:25:28
Joao Mario is also listed as a potential target. Do we know much about him? All I know he is right sided.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 23:09:01
Stop killing my pogba dream!

Agree1 Disagree4

23 May 2016 00:19:57
Carrick is still one of the best centre mids in the league i'd keep him and let schweini go.

Agree4 Disagree13

23 May 2016 04:57:33
Carrick use to be one of the best, unfortunately them days are now catching up with him.
There's 10 or more better than him in the premier league.

Hi ed001 do you know if there is any substance to the breaking mourihno mews.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - the club are about to sort out the managerial situation and there has been talks with Mendes over Mourinho. So there is a lot of truth. You would have to expect it to happen, as he is so keen on the job. Until he is being paraded by the club, you never really know for sure though.}

22 May 2016 10:13:52
Cheers ed it's difficult to see the truth through the media mud.
Whoever broke the story could have had better timing I almost felt sorry for lvg. almost.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:52:09
If true. Mendes would surely have a lot of more influence within the club.

Agree0 Disagree5

22 May 2016 19:46:18
Is it possible that Mendes is trying to force woodward's hand? Woodward is known for dilly dallying, perhaps Mendes is making his decision up for him. If Mourinho wanted the job then wouldn't a big story which negated/ the fa cup win and in turn let Van Gaal know that United were looking for a replacement, back everyone into a corner where the only possible outcome was Mourinho becoming the United manager. The man earns his money, that's for sure.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 May 2016 23:10:22
Penfold, and that doesn't even take into account how many mendes players are going to be bought be Jose. Best job this summer is mendes banker.

21 May 2016 21:40:03
Interesting to see who will be assistant manager next season. According to the media Giggs won't work with Jose but at the same time I doubt Jose is in a position to demand his own backroom staff if the board want to keep the ones we already have.

Hope Jose is backed in the market and gets his targets in early.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

22 May 2016 01:55:52
Jose will 100% be able to have his own backroom staff!

Agree8 Disagree1

22 May 2016 08:08:36
I would love to see scholes in a coaching role. Maybe not a big influence on Sunday but on the training pitch he'd be an incredible asset.

Agree0 Disagree2

22 May 2016 08:26:17
Scholes has been offered roles several times.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2016 12:59:26
I wonder whether a certain Drobga would come in to work with Jose. Could be decent for Rashford and Martial. He was rumoured to come on board with Jose at Chelsea at one point wasn't he?

Agree0 Disagree1

22 May 2016 08:06:12
Why? United know Jose is desperate for the job, Jose knows we know. United, foolishly, seem to want Giggs to stay and hold 3 of the 4 aces in negotiations. Perhaps that is why Mendes leaked the story to strengthen their position and put pressure on United.

I hope Jose joins and Giggs leaves, as for the rest of the backroom staff I don't know how good the current incumbents are or who Jose would want. Do think its important though that if we sign Jose that we back him fully. The last thing we need is people in the club trying to undermine him.

Agree0 Disagree3

21 May 2016 15:57:22
Why are certain sites / sports channels running with the story this afternoon that Jose mourinho has signed a 3 year deal? Is this true? Social media showing a video also .

Announcement to be made tonight after the final alledegly.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

21 May 2016 16:11:32
I'm pretty sure they have to notify the New York Stock Exchange before anything major like that. If anything happens it will be Monday.

Agree6 Disagree2

21 May 2016 16:25:42
Fingers crossed.

21 May 2016 17:14:39
Anyone else slightly worried abut Carrick and Rooney as a midfield pair.

Anyone notice LVG is not wearing the United suit?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 21:08:48
It sounds like it is happening. The BBC are running the story; and a lot of respectable journalists are also saying the same thing. They say it will be announced next week.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 21:24:26
Monday morning when the nyse opens.

21 May 2016 21:28:33
That's sly sports running it as from their sources Pmsl.

21 May 2016 21:44:34
That channel is a joke.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2016 00:01:20
There is no obligation to inform the shareholders of the change of a non director employee of the company prior to the event. No shareholder permission is required to hire and fire, and in any event the Glazers majority holding would necessarily prevail. In order to avoid any potential charge of stock price manipulation or insider trading it would be advisable to make sure the official statement is made to the press after the NYSE has been informed. The club may always argue that its strategic interests, and therefore the interests of the shareholders, are best served by appropriate timing. The media frenzy surrounding LVG and Mourinho makes it incredibly difficult fo the club to handle the matter seamlessly, and, any firm evidence to the contrary, would also make any charge of malfeasance very hard to prove.

Agree6 Disagree1

22 May 2016 08:12:41
True and well written Shaw.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2016 22:28:25
I think CBJ will leave in the summer. Rojo is shocking at LB, yet he is near enough a guaranteed firs pick for LVG. Unless CBJ has done a Zaha has slept with the managers daughter ;) then other than that I don't think there is a genuine reason to omit him from the squad, let alone not pick him to play.

Believable0 Unbelievable18

20 May 2016 23:09:33
The same cbj that signed a new deal earlier this week.

Agree9 Disagree1

21 May 2016 06:43:05
Luke Shaw will be LB next year, hopefully backed up by CBJ who is still very young and inexperienced. However, if Jose arrives, don't expect him to get many games.

Agree3 Disagree4

21 May 2016 07:55:27
I'd hope CBJ will get run outs in the league cup, certain league games and Europa games, hopefully Luke Shaw has an injury free year!

Agree6 Disagree0

21 May 2016 08:17:10
Had he signed a new contract? I hope he had.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 10:47:54
If shaw is fit and playing ark he will start most games at lb next season cbj will be the back up.
Ajh who was back up to Neville at right back when in his prime? And how many games did that back up get from Fergie. Try not to have a go at Jose for non reasons before he even comes to us.

Agree7 Disagree0

21 May 2016 16:44:43
i don't think we notified before sacking moyes, don't see how we need to notify now, given market is closed today and tomorrow.
