Rumours of Toby to Munich if they sell Boateng to PSG. Wonder how much he will cost them? I bet its cheaper than if we had signed him.

Agree0 Disagree0

As it should be if not selling to a direct rival.

15 Aug 2018 20:21:01
That's a big blow for city.

Kevin De Bruyne out for 'two to four' weeks, bet he's back in two weeks lol💉💉💉.

Nevermind, he's back for the Huddersfield game this weekend.

15 Aug 2018 20:23:50
Rumour is it will be a lot longer.

15 Aug 2018 20:44:47
Lol jred, my bad, months!

15 Aug 2018 22:58:28
Hes out for monthsss and it is a huge blow.

16 Aug 2018 09:31:03
Did they not walk all over Arsenal at the weekend without him?

Some of the negativity on here has become quite frankly embarrassing and toxic.

2/ 10 for the manager? Really? Its quite laughable. We've improved from 6th to 2nd, qualified for the UCL twice in a row, highest points tally since Sir Alex, won two trophies and been in a FA cup final.

If that's a 2/ 10 I dread to think what Klopp would get from you lot. But wait I'm sure many of those who rate the manager 2/ 10 would take Klopp.

The "replace the manager" brigade is out in full force but when asked to suggest who they would replace him with we get to see the flaw in their argument.

What makes you think Eddie Howe who has no experience managing even a medium size club like Spurs let alone United would do well here?

What makes you think Pochetino whose team repeatedly crumble when it matters the most would do a better job? Many have his Spurs side finishing above us yet for how awful you think we were last year, we finished above them and have strengthened the midfield and a full back position while they've signed none and also beat them in a cup semi. Oh and his team is no better to watch than ours imo, they just don't get the bad press we do.

The likes of Jardim have no experience in one of the big 4 leagues and have never had to manage the pressure and expectation.

I won't even respond to those suggesting Neville / Carrick. Are you out of your collective minds? Its a relief some on here don't run the club.

The grass is always seen as greener on the other side but I'm not sure it is. I would have taken Pep over Mourinho. Maybe Allegri / Ancelotti have a good case. But that's about it.

Good post redfaith.

15 Aug 2018 20:12:37
I think we should all become friends again and go for a nice curry together.

15 Aug 2018 20:55:26
I agree REDFAITH. I’m no Jose fan but the extremes are silly, it avoids sensible thought through debate.

16 Aug 2018 15:58:44
A big 👍 redfaith great post.

{Ed004's Note - Great post redfaith}

17 Aug 2018 09:41:26
Yes Red Faith, these managerial suggestions are almost as dumb as appointing three managers on the bounce who play dull, boring football which is completely against the ethos of the club.

Now that would be laughable.

I see the usual question is in vogue again-is jose the messiah-or just the one to fire? -another angle must surely be the question as to why players don't want to be at united-jose's style of management is no secret, and many players have signed for him previously, so should the question not be-is ed woodward, or as eloquently put by Ed025,is mr. deadwood the real problem at united? if he knew from May what players jose wanted defensively, acknowledged the list and led jose to believe he was cracking on, why was NOT ONE of those defenders signed, it seems strange nothing happens over 2-3 months and then old deadwood pipes up with 'utilize the youth team more-use what you've got already? 'that doesn't add up, yet he let jose get a defensive midfielder when there's more than 1 available already, with more in the youth team to call upon? -all last season everyone who watched united saw the problem was in defence, no 2 ways about it, so at least 2-3 new accomplished defenders were needed, jose says go and get me them to bring the standard up of the team, and yet deadwood baulks at this? out fecking standing! so deadwood and his dumb-ass business accumen has left the team STILL not able to function at a higher level with the same personel in place who were the problem from last year? that business decision stinks, and now he's bringing in a director of football! -to me these are the actions of a man who is inept, out of his depth, and leaving the team undermanned-so if you were jose, and you'd identified multiple targets to fix the main problem from the previous campaign, and the numpty you had trusted to get the job done cocks it up and then tries subdefuge to squirm his way out, how would you feel? -hung out to dry i'd say, well and trully-if anyone needs to be drop-kicked into touch, it should be deadwood, the village person version of daniel levy.

jose the messiah-or just the one to fire? Great line .

Lot of talk about our defense but we had the second defense in the league which is no surprise with a defensive manager the issue is our attack .
Did our creative players pogba martial Sanchez Mata rash really light it up last season in the way KDB and co did?

15 Aug 2018 10:19:24
Jose wanted an upgrade at CB, that is obvious. However, he himself has signed two already in Bailly and Lindelof. We also still have Jones, Smalling and Rojo at the club and talented young CB's coming through in Tuanzebe, TFM and Williams. So that's five first teamers and three youth prospects. We are well covered unless one or two leave. As of yet they haven't.

In midfield we lacked someone to link midfield and the forward line and someone who can get about the pitch. Fred offers both. Andreas Pereira offers both. So Fred has come in to replace Carrick in the squad.

I can see why we didn't sign a CB when I look at what we have already. Midfield needed a boost.

16 Aug 2018 00:13:27
Point taken fellas, but i still think old deadwood may be proficient in commercial dealings, but as for getting deals for players over the line-he's pants!

12 Aug 2018 19:03:14
We are 7th, that is unacceptable. Jose needs to be sacked ASAP. Not even in the qualifying places for the Europa league. Totally embarrassed. Team poor, uncommitted, lazy, no grit. Keane would be turning in his grave if the grim reaper wasn't too scared to come for him.

7th! FML #joseout.

Don't worry sappy very soon your wish will be granted 😁😁.

13 Aug 2018 15:10:36
Supposed to be tongue and cheek but going by some and your most recent posts shappy, the original post is somewhat believable.

14 Aug 2018 09:43:41
Had to read that twice to make sure it was a joke 😂.

12 Aug 2018 16:27:26
Very interesting listening to G Neville on Friday, asking who on the board is now making decisions on players, he is sure SAF and Sir Bobby aren't, so who has any football knowledge on the board? They knew Jose builds teams with purchases, he never built a young team up to win, that not his style. Why did they hire him and extend his contract and then decide not to give him what he needs to challenge?

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 18:38:12
I agree redcon. I was actually wondering if there was someone advising ed on transfers other than Jose.

But I kinda do like the fact that we didn't just spend silly money on anyone which is what we have fond at times over the last few windows. I'd imagine that they want to get a DOF on board and until then aren't going to be splashing the cash willy nilly.

Cheers AJH - we put ours in yesterday, let me know if you haven;t received them please mate (after missing out last year meant Mrs Beast won by default) - she still insists I was too afraid to enter after my previous pitiful defeats!

11 Aug 2018 13:23:39
Was the email enough, Tony, or do I need to do the link as well? I'm a bit of a technophobe, sorry.

11 Aug 2018 13:54:24
Sorry mate, can you click the link and enter them in? Ta.

As we wanted but didn't get a defender, I've a suggestion. I think a 3-5-2 formation. As Pereira has looked good pre season, how about a back 3 of Bailly, Lindelöf and when fit Matic as a sort of sweeper. Then a midfield of Pereira, Fred and Pogba. Wingbacks, Valencia/ Dalot and Shaw/ Young, and Alexis and Lukaku up front. With plenty of talented subs like Rashford, Martial, Mata, Jesse, Herrera, Fellaini. Believe it or not, that is a team to compete with anybody, and win things, hense in the predictions comp I have us winning the champions league. Maybe I've lost the plot, but we have the squad to do it. G. G. M. U.

{Ed004's Note - I think that's something we might need quite a bit of this season but I expect Matic to come in for Andreas and Smalling into the back 3. Not sure Bailly or Lindelof are good enough to cover for Smallings lack of ball playing ability}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 14:36:34
I agree about Smalling Ed, which is why I suggest trying Matic. In possession he could step forward, and without possession he can drop in between the other 2. He reads the game well and can play.

{Ed004's Note - I agree it would just simply be like playing the diamond formation with Matic dropping inbetween the centre backs so full backs can push on and give the width}

10 Aug 2018 13:44:22
Silly question i know but why let TFM and ALEX T leave on loan when we haven't got replacements.

Agree1 Disagree2

10 Aug 2018 15:59:24
Because we have Valencia, Dalot, Smalling, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw, Young which covers all positions and TFM and Axel want and need to go on loan for games probably.
