Romanian young 19yr old striker called Man. It's being reported that Jose has an interest. Guff or No?

Never heard of him anyone have any ideas?


1.) 07 Jun 2018 14:57:37
Got to admit the first time i heard of him was a few weeks ago when i signed him on fifa lol 😂.

2.) 07 Jun 2018 19:03:25
First name Griez?

3.) 07 Jun 2018 21:03:03
I’ve looked him up on YouTube, there is one video of him as an 8 year old and he looks brillIant. I’m really excited.

4.) 07 Jun 2018 22:30:31
I know AJH and that's when he was only Boy.

5.) 08 Jun 2018 13:11:25
Must admit I find it refreshing (and nostalgic) that we are going for players I’ve barely heard of. Makes a change from the ‘marketing’ signings we’ve been used to recently.

6.) 08 Jun 2018 13:34:03

Quality (sorry for the delay)

7.) 09 Jun 2018 14:48:41
Ronnie will be loving this feed . Man -Boy-tissue 😆😆.



03 Jun 2018 10:10:09
Papers are suggesting veratti which would make me very happy indeed.


1.) 03 Jun 2018 10:44:26
i flipping hope so mate! he would be the perfect midfield signing. available for the right price as well given what Ed002 said a while ago. can tackle, can pick a pass and always looks forward. Closest thing we will have in midfield to scholes since he left.

2.) 03 Jun 2018 11:46:34
no obvious source to the link plus he is a client of Mino Raiola and i think United don't really want anything to do with him anymore. so i am not reading much in to this.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 11:49:28
I can see hi being UTD. Think RM or Barcelona are his likely destination.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 11:50:55
Would people take a swap deal Pogba for Verratti?

5.) 03 Jun 2018 12:35:51
What’s with the obsession to get rid of Pogba? He’s our best midfielder.

6.) 03 Jun 2018 12:39:06
Not tall enough for Jose Mourinho. On a serious note what exactly has he done that he's so highly rated?
PSG have very little competition in the league. And everytime I see verrati playing against any big side he always comes out as a rash midfielder just waiting for a red card and usually he's subbed off.

{Ed007's Note - I know what you mean mate. Just look at De Bruyne, Sane, David Silva and Aguero etc, City have very little competition in the league and they flop in the CL so why are there players so highly thought of?}

7.) 03 Jun 2018 12:56:29
lost count of the amount of interviews I've read where Verratti says he is not interested in playing in England.

{Ed007's Note - It must be more than 20 then eh? ;)

8.) 03 Jun 2018 14:07:51
I think ed02 said he is not interested in moving to England and maybe return to Italy.

9.) 03 Jun 2018 13:10:49
Brilliant Bond.

{Ed007's Note - :-)

10.) 03 Jun 2018 14:03:35
Lol Bond, brutal! 😂.

11.) 03 Jun 2018 14:10:42
What's with the too small for Jose rubbish? Deco was hardly a giant.

12.) 03 Jun 2018 16:33:16
On a good day Ed007!

{Ed007's Note - ;)

13.) 04 Jun 2018 08:56:43
Eric79, then you can see what the problem is if our supposedly best midfielder can't really be bothered putting the effort in. It seems like it's not just for Utd either and the French fans have lost patience as well.

14.) 04 Jun 2018 18:34:34
If Pogba's our best midfielder, we're in trouble : (
Not trying to get rid, but if he and Jose don't book their ideas up next season, we definitely need to get rid.

15.) 04 Jun 2018 18:35:32
Exactly Mort, Sanchez isn’t exactly tall either.

16.) 04 Jun 2018 23:24:12
Who’s better Roco? Fellaini? McTominay?



06 May 2018 00:51:10
Apparently we have a greed an 80mil deal for malinkovic savic according to the sun and the metro! Probably bullpoo, but I'd be happy if it was the case. Can any of the eds shine any light on this?


{Ed001's Note - nope, no deals agreed yet that I am aware of.}

1.) 06 May 2018 08:41:18
Savic will be a brilliant signing. But I reckon Lazio would prefer to create a bidding war and sell him after the World Cup.

2.) 06 May 2018 11:00:12
Saw similar reports 12days. Looks a cracking player and really hope it’s true. Seems perfect for the premier league and a mourinho type player. I would expect him to go for no less than £100m even if that is extortionate money. Hope we sign him up as he is a beast.

3.) 06 May 2018 12:47:38
In many ways, I hope Jose sells a Pogba and replaces him with SMS. To some degree - although there are many other factors to consider - I think the Pogba conundrum has become a microcosm for the main issues surrounding the club - and at the heart of many comments on here.

Firstly, he clearly has the potential but is too inconsistent. Whether this is because of his relationship with a manager who can’t get through to him, or he’s just not willing to take advice from the coaches, who knows. This is reflected in our sense of teamwork - he’s not the only one who seems more interested in Hollywood balls than simple passes tgT benefit the team.

Thus, secondly, a lack of teamwork, togetgernss and possibly underlined by the lack of leadership on the pitch - would Vidic or Keane put up with such an inconsistent/ frustrating player?

Thirdly, the pungent waft of money that brought him, and his agent, to the club. Add this to his social media presence and you can understand why giving everything for the club, regardless of rewards, might not be his top priority. Haircuts over hatricks? United paid way too much for him - and other players no doubt - in some sort of effort for a quick fix to appease the fans who are desperate to return to successful ways. Is he, and others, really worth the huge wages - and do they do enough to deserve them?

Thus, even though I’m probably ill-informed and tactically naive, get in SMS, who seems less reliant on systems or others around him to replace Pogba. Add a good DM (ideally Jorginho but Fred seems like a decent option - not Seri, as he’s allergic to cold weather or something) with Herrera and a couple of full backs, and we should be a decent proposition next season.

4.) 06 May 2018 13:33:57
Jorgino and Fred are completely contrasting players. I see Fred as more of a creative attacking mid?

5.) 06 May 2018 13:46:48
Surpise Surprise. The agent of SMS already says its nonsense no agreement with anyone.

6.) 06 May 2018 15:47:12
I think there no agreement for now, and agent won't come out and say therez at the moment.

We have been told would be the first choice CM, so the club may be pushing to make it happen.

7.) 06 May 2018 16:14:53
Thanks for the swift response ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

Reports of varane for 53mil.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 08:32:37
DId it go through? SO excited.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 14:00:26
It was reported on football365 so I relayed that information here. On a rumours site.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 19:18:27
He was invisible in the game against Huddersfield. Shouldn’t have bothered.



18 Dec 2017 15:58:01
This is getting tiresome. we are second to a record breaking side at the moment. We are not dreadful. We are actually very very good. we have the second most goals in the league and the best defense in the league. We are on track to finish 4 places higher up the league than we did last year with a much better GD. We are also in a superior European competition and progressing well.

There are so many people on here that sound bitter. We as United fans are spoiled rotten and it shows. Yes it hurts that it's City of all people that are dominating at the moment but quit comparing us to them and look at what we have achieved since LVG was pushed.

The improvement is there for people to see, they are just choosing not to.


1.) 18 Dec 2017 18:46:05
12 days I agree with u 12 times over.

2.) 18 Dec 2017 19:39:00
I think you are comparing the wrong things and using the wrong benchmarks.

What you are saying in a nutshell is because a guy beat up 10 people last weekend, and this weekend he only beat up 5 people he is becoming a better citizen, so quit complaining. There is no denying he is behaving better of course, but is it good enough compared to the guy that beats nobody up (City)?

We need to compare ourselves against City at the minute, both in terms of points on the board and the manner of obtaining those points. We are a hard watch, grinding out wins, shutting up shop against any half decent side we play against and I can't see how much more improvement is available if we continue to go down this path - it's the same performance virtually every single week (horrible to watch) . Yes we will pick up the occasional fortunate win against decent opposition (Arsenal, to a lesser extent Spurs), but on the whole our focus is on not getting beat, our focus prior to the LVG/ Moyes debacle was "go and beat" whoever we play for the most part.

So yes we are doing better on paper, but I think we are using clever accounting techniques and we are the footballing equivalent of Enron at the minute. The manager doesn't seem committed, players don't seem on-board, hard to deny we are playing long ball more than we should, slow football when we don't resort to hoofing it, it's a slippery slope that requires £150m+ every summer just to keep it going it seems. Most of us would agree we need 4-5 world class signings to compete with City still, how much will that cost and would they want to play for a team that plays our way? Then can Jose's negative tactics compete with Pep's tactics if we do get his ideal players, (not to mention our European rivals)? If Pep was managing us and Jose was managing City, I genuinely think the Utd would be top of the league, it is a massive factor unfortunately and I think it's too easily overlooked - not sure what the answer is but Jose is not going to overturn City going down the path he is taking in my opinion.

Our main rival has improved more than we have, that is a massive problem for me, because they already has a big head-start.

3.) 18 Dec 2017 19:57:14
I agree with you Beast although I’m probably a bit more optimistic:-) I’m never sure which United is going to turn up these days. The entertaining free flowing fast passing team I love watching or the scared park the bus and hit it long United which is becoming more frequent. I get that there can be off days but since when do united hold on by their finger nails for 3 points against WBA. We should be smashing these teams out of sight, beating them before they’ve even stepped onto the pitch.
Forget this defend in numbers. Leave the top 3 up front and get a playmaker in who can get the ball to them quickly.

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

4.) 19 Dec 2017 02:59:31
I think it would be fair to compare us vs city if you extrapolated our matches with pogba to a full healthy/ non suspended season. He’s shown how much our team is centered on his unique skill set with how much more we win and how many more goals a game we score when he’s playing. Feel free to do the math but I’m pretty sure we’d be right behind city, and definitely would have had a better chance in the derby. What gives me hope despite frustrations is that if we can keep pogba on the field we are much closer to city if not equal in terms of quality and results. It’s been during pogba-less stretches that we’ve fallen behind.

5.) 19 Dec 2017 09:00:42
I think (hope) unitedred, that that is exactly what we are building towards. (We hung on for our lives in more than a few Fergie era games though against 'small' teams. )

6.) 19 Dec 2017 12:06:00
beast will have u believe that during SAF days, teams would poop themselves before playing us, but nostalgia can be tricky coz from a realistic vantage point it was nothing like that.

Also, I'm not sure if pep would've beaten Jose had the roles been reversed.

If u haven't seen improvement in the team in the past two odd years then we'll always be at loggerheads.

7.) 19 Dec 2017 15:03:30
I agree KG. Pogba has only played in 8 PL games. 7 wins and a draw. 24 goals for and 6 goals against and we have scored 4 goals in 4 off those games.

8.) 19 Dec 2017 16:04:32
I think KG hit the nail on the head there, 100% agree with that.

Fellaini showing why he is an important option for us to have if our plan A is not working. No doubt he is not first choice - behind Pogba, Fred and Matic. Need to get balls in the box? Bring him on.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 20:41:57
Always does .

2.) 02 Jul 2018 20:52:18
If some of our players showed as much heart as him they wouldve had a better season last year.

6.) 02 Jul 2018 22:35:23
If Martial had Fellaini’s attitude he’d be a worldie. Alas he doesn’t and he isn’t.

7.) 02 Jul 2018 23:51:35
Hit the nails on the heads Eric.



29 Apr 2018 13:21:32
Jose in the press saying that he sees being at United for quite a while yet and that it will be his longest domestic position.




21 Apr 2018 22:23:18
I think today was continued proof of progress coupled with success under Jose. Our record in big games is much improved and every aspect of our game is better than it was the season before. Long may Jose remain in charge as far as I am concerned if progress continues.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 22:41:51
Il get the pop corn.

He’s stabilising the club, and irrespective of what he does/ doesn’t win next year the club will be in a better place than when he joined. I still think he could be with us for many more years. Right now he’s putting trophies in the cabinet with a poor squad. What more can people ask for?

4.) 22 Apr 2018 06:50:35
I not a fan of Jose but yA u can’t argue with the stats. Mor poimts, more goals, fewer conceded, 6th last year and likely 2nd this year with another Cup Final. Whilst I don’t like him I guess we have to be careful what we wish for. Look at Southampton. Last year they finished 8th (albeit in a congested table) and got to the League Cup Final. Unhappy with the style they sacked their Manager and are now going to be relegated. Interestingly Puel has rescued Leicester this year. Go figure.

5.) 22 Apr 2018 10:03:43
Good point AJH 👍.

6.) 22 Apr 2018 10:05:30
Timbo. I'm not Mourinho's biggest fan but he has brought stability. The style of play leaves a lot to be desired. But to say our squad is "poor" is ridiculous. We have an excellent squad and points dropped against huddersfield, Newcastle WBA and Burnley cost us massively. I also think the cowardly way we played against City at OT was when we surrendered the title like whimps.
Display against Seville was another terrible performance full of fear. Instead of going out to win.
We are in a final amd likely to face chelsea, who are our nemesis. So before we jump in celebration, we should think about the terrible perfornances in some of the big games against City and Seville at OT which cost us two posdible trophies.

7.) 22 Apr 2018 11:02:58
AAA. A SQUAD that has no proper high end full backs and only 4 experienced midfielders for 3 positions can be described as poor. We are improving the squad now we have a proper mananger hopfully after the summer you can say its a good squad. Its still a squad with too nany glarung deficiences to be called a good squad. Fellaini was our only sub midfielder so that's enough to call it a poor squad. Young and valencia starting full back weekly that's a poor squad. Manager working his magic keeping them competitive.
Best post in months ajh.
I get the feeling some fans watched the win through gritted teeth yesterday.
No sign of the sanchez detractors today.
Pogba and sanchez can't play in same team my ass.
Not too many people clamouring for martial to have started yesterday now. Let jose flip his few players then get on with catching city because he will. He knows what he is doing.

8.) 22 Apr 2018 11:03:49
Yes let's think of the negatives after a good semi win😁😁😁😉.



08 Apr 2018 01:06:42
Herraras assist! Outrageous piece of skill.


1.) 08 Apr 2018 08:08:40
It was a sublime chest down. If Silva or De Bruyne had done the same thing then the commentators would have reached for the tissues. The chat around Youngs challenge was outrageous from the MOTD commentator. "Catching aguero on the knee, absolutely a red card" and then saying they should have had 2 penalties etc, ridiculous.

2.) 08 Apr 2018 09:18:45
The Young ‘handball’ was never a penalty, was not deliberate as he slipped and had his hand planted, the 2nd one was reckless and a pen for me, wouldn’t be surprised at a red either, glad it wasn’t given mind.



27 Mar 2018 16:43:21
Pep is having trouble filling his bench as it Is, I feel for the guy having to field 12 subs next year in the champions league.


1.) 27 Mar 2018 17:10:26
I'm sure he can put a couple of refs on there, might as well make it official.

There is no way he is first choice, he is a good option off the bench and has proven that since Jose came into the side.

Leahy we're not saying yes! We've signed dalot and Fred, what a start that is! We're saying we have identified our targets and signed them. I'll pass judgement on the success of the players when they actually start, you know, playing. But for now our manager, who has improved us since he took over, has signed two players that he considers to make our squad better.

How is this not a good start?

Surely it's a good start in terms of target identified and signed with the minimum of fuss.

That can only bode well for the players' settling in period.

Totally dependent on the price. If we could get him for between 10 and 15 mil he'd be an excellent squad player.
