There are some that said Jesse wasn’t good enough and I guess there are still some that think he is at best a squad player but you have to give the lad credit. He keeps popping up scoring important goals and he plays with a smile on his face and seems to enjoy every moment. I’m so pleased for him and I hope he can take that final step and be consistent.


1.) 24 Mar 2018 16:25:04
He has always been highly thought off within the club. It was always accepted that he would take longer to find his feet due to his size. I read an interview with him where he said that Sir Alex always said he would become a real player when he's 25 like Tigana. I wonder how much of him really stepping up this season is down to him feeling that this year was going to be his year.

I did worry when we signed Sanchez as it was going to push either Lingard or Martial out of the side when arguably they we our best two forwards at that time. Maybe its time for Sanchez to be dropped for a game or two and make him fight for his place against players who are in form.

2.) 24 Mar 2018 16:40:40
Shaps, I don’t know why we bought Sanchez other than to stop City buying him. We had needs inother areas way before a left sided attacker was needed and even if he starts firing it just relegates Martial or Rashford. This smacks of Woodward and his marque signing obsession. I don’t want to upset you but if Bale is available you can bet your mortgage Ed will be there waving his chequebook.

3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:46:51
The thing with Jesse is you know he will work on the pitch and not hide. He has proven this year that he has more in the locker than people thought imo but he had the beginnings of a good season couple of years back when he got ani injury early on at Swansea I think. Change of personel and management has not deterred him and I think he has saved us a good few bob on bringing in a n other player.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:58:44
I was one of those thinking he wasn't going to be up to it and would be sold, at times I feel foolish, but then he can be anonymous far too often for me (like most of our attacking players) .

I still think in order for us to be competing at the very top we need better than Lingard. But if he improves again as much as he has over the past 18 months then he will deserve a regular berth in a top Utd team.

I love his energy and clever runs, maybe there is even more to come from him once we get back to playing proper attacking football and those runs will be picked out by players that currently refuse the pass and opt for 'safety' instead. I certainly would like him to impact games more consistently as well, 10 seconds of brilliance now and again is good, but we need more than that over a 90 minute match from an attacking midfielder.

5.) 24 Mar 2018 17:39:38
I agree Beastand that was my point about consistency. When he is good he is very good but often you can forget he is on the pitch, which is very frustrating when he gets himself in such good positions and scores such important goals. He needs to turn up for more games than he does, which I think he will if he continues to develop as he has done in the last year. And he is home grown which means a lot to me,

6.) 24 Mar 2018 17:52:11
Does he go missing or as mentioned above is it a case of him making good runs and his team mates not playing the creative pass to find him?

The best players score in the big games, which he does more consistently than those around him. H deserves his place in the team, he works hard, he offers movement and he can finish. I think he will thrive if we add more quality to the midfield. He is a bit of a social media whore, but as long as he performs on the pitch it’s not a problem. I wish pogba put half the effort in he does.

7.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:58
Agree with all of the posts regarding jesse in some degree, better than dele alli in my opinion who plays a similar role especially this season.

8.) 25 Mar 2018 05:21:49
I must be the only one who doesn't yet rate him. He for me is going through his Smalling patch where player looks good for a season or 2 but with lingard it has only been 2 months rather than the whole season.

He was mostly anonymous until December and has been anonymous for most part since February. That is 2 good months in 3-4 years. Yes he scores some important goals from time to time but he going to have to perform much better to be more than a squad player.

9.) 25 Mar 2018 16:58:04
No MU player apart from De Gea has been sensational for long, playing good for some time and then playing poorly.

10.) 26 Mar 2018 14:14:47
CSM, that's not really fair, even if he's only started looking like a real top player this season, he's actually been doing well for the last couple of years. He was hardly "anonymous" before December anyway. 8 goals and assists in 17 games, 11 of which he played 30 minutes or less in, may not be setting the league on fire, but it's certainly not "anonymous".

Re: the consistency, I'm inclined to agree with Huggy. He's suffering from the way the team is playing, and would have a much more consistent impact if the runs he makes were picked out a bit more often by players behind him. Now, I'm not saying he's doing everything right, maybe he'd still be a bit inconsistent with players behind him looking for those runs and playing more positive football, but the point is that we don't really know, and I don't think it's fair to judge him too harshly when we don't really know how much of the inconsistency is down to him, and how much is down to the way the teamas a whole is playing.

I would really love to see Herrera used in a more advanced role, ahead of Matic rather than alongside him, where he can look to play the passes that someone like Lingard can feed on. It's too easy to see his great defensive performances last season and forget that he's a great passer of the ball, with an eye for getting team mates in behind the defence.

11.) 26 Mar 2018 14:23:10
That FA cup winning goal seemed to really kick him on and he’s improved a lot since then.


How you can say he’s been anonymous is beyond me, he’s probably scored more important goals than any other player in the last 2 years.

12.) 26 Mar 2018 14:53:27
Gds important goals don't mean consistency. Yes he scored against Chelsea and in fa cup final but can you remember a run of games until December where you could say he was consistently good. A first team player needs to be consistently good and unlike rashford or martial lingard isn't exactly in the youngster category.

Thorne he has been good this season but last season he had 5 goals and 3 assists in 42 games in lvg's last season he had 7 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. Those are not good figures and he needs get similar to his current nos before we can be sure that he has improved rather than going through a purple patch.

Also where exactly will he play next season jose wants savic added to the team and jorginho as replacement for carrick, so we most likely will be switching to a mf 3.

13.) 30 Mar 2018 18:44:50
Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.



17 Feb 2018 08:31:11
Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.


{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}

1.) 17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.

2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?

3.) 17 Feb 2018 11:20:17
Yay. Thanks ed for that.



12 Jan 2018 21:19:21
All this talk of Sanchez has masked the rumour that Vardy is also being considered. Not sure if they would sell or at what price but I think he would slot in much easier, albeit he is a like for like with Lukaku. Sanchez’s attitude worries me, the stories from Arsenal about his isolationist approach do not bode well for team spirit. Hey ho, what do I know?


1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:45
I hope not. Hateful diving git, Gerrard, suarez, terry, barton, keown, cattermole, Vardy. all the same to me would of hated to see any of them in a red shirt.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:05:33
That's one heck of a team those lot would make. Lacks some wide players tho.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 05:53:05
bfbw, there too much hate in your heart, i'd have had Keown and Suarez any day of the week. Go hug a tree man.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 08:10:14
AJH Vardy is a player Maze likes and admired over the years for his tenacity as well as his rags to riches story but to say he is a better option than Sanchez is silly, very silly.

Wake up AJH you are dreaming of poorly fabricated scenarios.



08 Dec 2017 20:28:41
So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 01:43:34
Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 10:50:17
We’ll park the bus and try to catch them on the counter and via set pieces.



27 Aug 2017 19:14:26
Just caught up with MOTD, I thought all our players played well. Amongst other things that stood out though:

1. Joe Hart, wow, surely he isn't England's goalie any more
2. Anyone else warming to Rafa? No? Just me?
3. City, still not convincing and I think strong teams will bully them.
4. Shearer has become a half cent pundit since he stopped sitting on the fence.
5. Phil Neville, got to love him, is he the most positive person in the world ever?
6. Swansea possibly not as bad as we have thought.
7. Bilic and De Boer have to be worried although after today's debacle, perhaps Wenger will be first to go.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 20:35:38
Pretty much agree with everything there mate.
I was saying to my lad yesterday that if this palace squad go down it's the best squad ever to be relegated.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 00:43:07
Phil Neville really annoys me. He's so biased it's unbelievable. Agree with the rest. De Boer is no surprise, he was abysmal at inter. Played some disgraceful football there.

I remember when we bought Stebe Bruce, I thought he was a do key at the time but what a player he turned out to be. Pep clearly sees something in h too so let's see how it pans out

too a do let at the timeyer he turned out to.


{Ed001's Note - did you type this from the pub?}

1.) 02 Jul 2019 17:24:01
I speak fluent drunk. He's saying we shouldn't buy Maguire, we should spend the 70 million on cloning Steve Bruce.

5.) 02 Jul 2019 20:57:39
It’s a bit worrying that Utd were deciding last week if they should get a CB or not, after what we have seen last season I would have thought it’s a no brainer!
Then today we apparently bid £70 million for Maquire!
Who is making these decisions, it’s obvious we need the best CB we can buy and he isn’t that, we also need a right winger or attacker, if we have to pay £100 million to get koulibally get him, if Dias is £60 get him Maguire is the modern day Phil Jones.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 23:38:26

You’ve made the age old mistake of believing something you have read, Ed002 has said which defenders we are looking at, the club didn’t ‘decide last week’ that they might want a centre half, and the offer for Maguire that was reported today was more Sky guff so they could say 2 hours later the offer was rejected. They already knew it had been rejected when they printed the original story and they create their own narrative.

I hope it’s his agent.

Also did a slightly unconventional run up, its like pogbas played a mind control trick on him.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 22:11:49
He was also pretty anonymous apart from scoring a penalty. Spooky.

3.) 07 Jun 2019 06:19:47
That sort of run up had been common for years, it was nothing like Pogba’s.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 10:26:13
AJH, what about winning the penalty? I any England att player had a bad game it was Sterling.



02 Jun 2019 23:56:22
Well here we are again, time for the results of the Predictions competition. To remind you, there were 19 predictions required and if you managed to get them all correct you would achieve 60 points. As with other seasons nobody got within a country mile of 60 points! Interestingly, we also had a couple of Scousers, and a Chelsea fan take part this year.

Before we get to the result, let’s look back and laugh at a few things. 3 people had Sanchez winning PFA Player of the year (that includes you Mumbles and Bolger), interestingly nobody at all predicted either of the PFA winners. There were also a few left field predictions for 6th place including Bournemouth, West Ham, Palace (! ), and a few for Everton and Wolves. As for relegation, Bournemouth and Wolves (United Addict) were predicted to go down, and a few people went for Newcastle, Southampton, and Watford.

To the results, 3rd place with 25 points, well actually 3 people in joint second were Bolger2 (despite the Sanchez punt), Kingkenny (the Scouse interloper, and Phred. But out on his own in 1st place with 29 points, the 2019 champion is DLIB. Well done mate.

Last year’s champion, the ever optimistic and ray of sunshine that is Jaime slipped to 27th and in terms of some of the regular posters, jred was equal 9th, Weggy equal 13th, Park3lung, Ed004, and Beast were equal 18th.

At the other end of the scale, REDFAITH, United Addict and Mumbles were second last with 8 points.

Full Results here so you can see where you finished. There are 2 tabs, one with how the scoring works, one with all the results on it.

17.) 03 Jun 2019 19:19:23
Red devil fan, not sure what you’re looking at but that’s not what the sheet says when I click on it. 3 players tie for the golden boot, Aubamayang, Salah, and Mane, that’s who has points.



18 May 2019 09:15:18
I may be in the minority but I hope City win today. Nobody has won the domestic treble, we came closest in ‘94, we did the double but lost to Villa in the final of the League Cup, a pretty dreadful game. Records are there to be broken and this season has been phenomenal for a host of reasons. It would be an incredible achievement to clean sweep the domestic trophies and they have to be favourites.

On a separate subject, have people been watching the play offs? Incredible games but my God, how much diving and feigning injury has there been? It was embarrassing and seemed to be pretty much every team. I know it goes on but it was beyond pathetic. The incredible games though, Villa West Brom, Leeds Derby in particular were fantastic spectacles.


1.) 18 May 2019 09:29:53
Watching the lower leagues almost reminds me of top flight football from 15- 20 years ago. There seems to be more of a freedom to the way they play and certainly less coaching. Don’t get me wrong watching City is great at times but for much of it I’m bored. This may be an argument for another day but I feel the real entertainment in footballs top divisions is ebbing away with players being overcoached. That’s why I’m enjoying the play offs so much.

2.) 18 May 2019 09:45:22
Completely agree Hopper, the money in the EPL means it’s all about the top 4 for some, survival for others. I was struck by how much every team was trying to play football in the play offs across all divisions. GKs all looking to pay it short and not simply boot it up the field, Much more technically savvy than it used to be. Really looking forward to the finals.

3.) 18 May 2019 09:19:23
I hope they lose and Watford win.

4.) 18 May 2019 10:58:50
How could any true red want city to win. Who cares if the players have to come in early for pre season, it’s the least they deserve for their pathetic abject performances, pity you can’t sack em. Any normal job if you performed like that on a weekly basis you’d be down the road sharpish. Their heads are so far up their own backsides. They probably think they deserve a payrise.

5.) 18 May 2019 11:39:33
No I can’t hope City win, tbh coming back early might help us out fitness wise. Btw, I’ve never known a cup final day with so little mention of it all across the media, didn’t even remember it was on.

6.) 18 May 2019 13:21:05
So true Welsh - I actually thought it was tomorrow.

7.) 18 May 2019 14:20:03
I didn't know it was on either, go on Watford.

8.) 18 May 2019 14:37:17
I think you're in the minority, Tony 😁.

9.) 18 May 2019 15:01:54
I don't want City to win, but due to the circumstances I won't be upset if they do.

Because we finished 6th if Watford win the FA cup they go into the Europa League at the group stages and we get pushed back to the second qualifying round which starts in mid July, rather than starting our Europa League campaign in mid September.

Watford winning the FA cup will ruin our pre-season plans. We will either have to fly back from Shanghai to Europe to play the qualifier then fly back out to China to complete our pre-season commitments a couple of days later to then fly back to Europe again after that. Meaning two extra 10+ hour flights in one week. Or we will have to split the squad leaving half back in Europe to play the qualifier and the other half go on the pre-season tour.

Neither are good preparation for what is going to be a tough season next year.

So if City win, they they do us a massive favour. So I won't be gutted if they do.

10.) 18 May 2019 16:01:48
We shouldn't need favours from another team and should accept whatever fate gives us.

11.) 18 May 2019 21:06:09
No surprise there Stevie, I just don’t have the animosity for a city that I do for Liverpool, Leeds, or Chelsea. Must be my age.

12.) 18 May 2019 21:24:32
I'm the same, mate.

Sky make things up all the time, they are just trying to generate clicks and interest. Their deadline day shows have become embarrassing, they build them up into being ‘the most dramatic day ever’ and they are always a compete flop. They also have their own betting site which is dodgy.

I agree Tris. I think Vettel will retire opening up a Ferrari seat, and Verstappen has a get out clause in his contract. Lewis wants to pass Schumacher’s records but I also think he’d like a year or two at Ferrari so there could be some interesting changes this year. Also interested to see if Renault can kick on as they have a racer in Ricciardo.

Vettel couldn’t handle Ricciardo and I think Leclerc will see him off as well, I expect him to retire at then end of his year. He made so many mistakes last year and that has continued into this season. Hamilton is supreme but isn’t getting any younger, we will see a changing of the guard over the next 2 or 3 seasons.


{Ed001's Note - Verstappen and Leclerc look to be the new guard, along with Norris, Albon etc.}

I’m in the minority but I like Mike. He’s an excellent defender but for me he has 2 very obvious weaknesses. He can’t pass to save his life so he’s never going to bring the ball out, and he has a mistake in him. He can be having a great game and then switch off costing us a goal. I realise that’s a pretty serious flaw but there’s a good player in there.
