According to report, we have triggered the year option in darmians contract, he will go to juventus on a lon with an option to buy.

I assume that valencia has enough fitness to see this season out then leave on a free in the summer.

Young will probably get an extension leaving dalot shaw young and fosu mensah as our full back options next season unless we bring someone in.


1.) 20 Jan 2019 18:02:33
Tfm will not be in our squad next season as a full back option. If ww don't bring a full back in i expect the 4 would be mitchell shaw young and dalot.
Interesting that he cose to play dalot on the left yesterday when shaw fell ill instead of young.
It shows that both young and shaw can play either side adequately.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 21:59:14
Not good enough options in my opinion. Shaw is playing better, I'm happy with him as my first choice atm, with young and depot as cover. We need a top class rb because we have nothing down the right. I like depot but not sure if he's ready to be first choice just yet. We could do with someone who's about 29-30 in their prime for a couple of years till dalot is ready. That and a top centre back and we'd have a good foundation to build from.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 06:06:29
Shaw and young for LB. Dalot and a top right back at peak for RB.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 06:26:16
Wan Bissaka.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 11:38:07
I would like to see us go for Milenkovic to play at RB with Dalot as cover. He's young but can also play central. I would also love us to see if Mbappe can be prised away from PSG given their financial woes. Imagine a front three of Rashford, Martial and Mbappe!

6.) 21 Jan 2019 12:29:49
I woyld rather we brought in a RB and a LB. Mitchell is not good enough - offer money for Kieran Tierney and that's LB sorted, he has the potential to be the best LB in UK. At RB we need someone who is ready to go, Perreira would be my choice but I am sure there are plenty options.



16 Oct 2018 21:50:00
Reports that shaw could be putting pen to paper on a 5 year deal soon.

Are 8/ 9 games enough to earn that contract?

Or is just to keep his value high. Admittedly i am pleased he has started the season well when at times its looked his career at united could have over but am still not convinced he's the long term answer at the position.


1.) 17 Oct 2018 10:33:42
hes still very young and has been one of the positives this season

i would be happy with him signing a new 5 year deal.

2.) 17 Oct 2018 10:37:46
He's spent a good chunk of his time at the club injured or stuck in the reserves, so I think it's fair to give him a new contract after his recent spell of form. If in 3 years from now there is still no real improvement he will most likely be gone.

3.) 17 Oct 2018 12:10:02
He had a shakey first season when it could be said he was adapting to being at a club our size. He then went away and trained hard over the summer and at the start of his second season he was our best player until he got injured. He then struggled for a couple of years to fully over come the injury and deal with the change in management. He has up until now probably been our best player this season.

So I think it's clear the potential is still there and he can realise that here with us. Why let him leave, especially on the cheap. He is an England international and we need to keep good quality homegrown players especially when they can perform to level where they are regularly our best player.

We'd be stupid not to give him long term contract.

4.) 17 Oct 2018 13:58:59
The issue for me is, why have we let the contracs of so many players run down.

5.) 17 Oct 2018 14:11:52
Going to be a very good player.

6.) 17 Oct 2018 14:50:48
He's one of the ones we should be looking to extend along with Mata, Herrera and de Gea. The rest can go for free or buttons.

7.) 18 Oct 2018 18:35:38
Had a great season so far. He deserves a new contract imo. He has been doing and saying the right things all season. One of the few who is actully full of praise for the manager in fact. There has been a full turn around in his form and his confudence and he looks fit and raring to go. If he keeps his form and fitness it will be a big plus for the team.



11 Aug 2018 12:26:57
Manchester United academy graduates played a total of 253 minutes last night, that’s 200 minutes more than Manchester City graduates played all of last season, but Mourinho doesn’t play youth apparently.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 12:57:55
I hate city as much as any united fan but now it's just getting ridiculous. Pogba, Rashford come under our academy graduates. City has just started developing youth which they think should be capable of playing at the highest level. There are a couple who are very good and even played for them last season and didn't look out of place due to their style of play. They just bought a club in Spain where these players will play against the best and come back to be in the first team. Jose playing these guys yesterday was out of necessity.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 13:14:33
Nothing stopping guardiola signing micah richards and michael johnson back and playing them. I wouldn't have a problem with it lol.

Jose can't win can he, he plays youthful academy players but it not quite the correct variation of mystical magical youth player people want. Then he sticks to type and he's use accused of wanting to fill the team with experienced players over 30 and has no long term vision.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 14:48:04
OK with your powerful reply and the mention of Micah Richards you have managed to change my mind. Now I agree that Jose is a very youth oriented manager. I think we should adopt this style of play throughout our youth system so that there is a more seamless entry for our academy graduates into the first team. Can't wait to see chong playing at left back.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 16:20:25
Anyone really see city playing youth much this season?

5.) 12 Aug 2018 01:35:26
I think Foden might get a few games. I actually hipe he does as he is a special talent.

6.) 12 Aug 2018 05:24:35
Can't see Foden getting games.

7.) 12 Aug 2018 08:28:24
Foden might get a run of FA/ League Cup games. He looks a good player.

8.) 12 Aug 2018 11:05:55
He'll probably be at palace or Newcastle on 18 months.



27 Jun 2018 11:05:14
Looks like fellaini has agreed a new contract with the club until 2020.

I think this will go down well on the site lol.


1.) 27 Jun 2018 11:30:05
Absolutely devastated. Total shambles from the club. He's hawked himself around Europe got no good offers and we're going to get stuck with him. An injury prone squad player on far too much money that's going to affect other signings.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 12:15:28
Here's to another shambolic season. Thought we were moving forward signing Fred and Dalot. Then the news The useless plank Fellani is staying. Joke utter Joke. Well Jose won't have a leg to stand on when he gets sacked and it won't be long before he does . Keeping Fellani.

3.) 27 Jun 2018 13:07:14
Fellaini will not start a lot of games but Jose has shown he is happy to use him when needed. Useful sub.
I think already the signing of Fred will improve the style of play as I think he will fit next to Matic with Pogba further forward.
We have glaring issues at fullback and right wing, if this ensures the money is available to address those positions with top quality I'm in favour.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 13:46:06
Devastated? lol for god sake.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 14:59:13
Yes I've had to watch him shambling around the pitch for 5 years masquerading as a united player and genuinely thought that was over.

6.) 27 Jun 2018 15:24:42
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.

7.) 27 Jun 2018 16:45:50
One more season of balls. looking for wig in when defence is tight to open. So Jose decided to open them with head ball rather beautiful football.
I'm personally wanted him to leave for good of our football style.

This also ends our need to bring another CM.

8.) 27 Jun 2018 23:29:16
Why does he have to be the option off the bench? Why does plan b have to be launch it?
Ole, teddy, Hernandez and the like were all options from the bench at times and they could all play. Last season Fellaini scored one winner against a very depleted arsenal side. It’s an awful decision to extend or actually worse still offer him a new deal. No one wanted him badly enough in. Free and that should say it all.

Another season of jose’s poor excuse for football coming up. What direction is this club going?



06 Jun 2018 10:12:36
Tottenham looking to start negotiations with us for martial.

Hope we put up as much of a fight as levy does when clubs go in for his players. I somehow doubt we will and hell end up going for a bargain price and well regret selling him for sure.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 12:40:36
How the conversation should go.
Levy - is martial for sale?
Woody - no
Levy - maybe Toby in a straight swap.

Woody - kiss my hairy meatballs. Its either 40m for Toby or its Shaw and 15m.

Levy - what about 50m for martial

Woody - are you talking about his wages or a transfer fee? In this market he is worth 70m easy and we don't want to sell so that's 110m for martial

Levy - We won't pay more than 50m for a player.

Woody - not my problem, 50m and Eriksen and we might talk. I'm busy conducting real business so no fannying around. You got till Monday, after that you're on call divert to my fax machine.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 12:46:50
Depends on if A) the player wants to go and B) if the club want to sell.

The club I imagine would prefer to sell abroad and the player would prefer a move to say juventus.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 13:58:37
He won’t be going to Spurs - although personally think it’s a good move for him.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 23:40:31
Wow how much do you value Shaw at lol.

5.) 06 Jun 2018 23:39:53
I may be wrong but seem to recall the Martial deal had milestone payments, one of which when he scored a certain number of goals we would have to pay a lump sum. I seem to recall reading he was one goal short of that milestone towards the end of the season. It may not impact contractually because if we sell I imagine there are other clauses to make up for it but there may still be a financial benefit to selling him before he scores it.

Overall Martial is too phlegmatic which spoils his talent, I don’t see where he would fit in the team at Spurs.

Looking back, and i know hindsight is 20/ 20, but how much more sense did it make to not go in for sanchez last january and wait till the summer and buy mahrez as i am pretty sure city wouldn't have signed both with all the other options they had.

That way we would have not stunted martials development on the left and would have solved our issues on the right which would us way less reliant on our left hand side when attacking.

How many posters would have accepted that scenario at the time?


{Ed004's Note - Tbf Mahrez has done very little at City and when he does play he looks a tear below his competitors for that spot. I think if we had signed him we would still have been questioning that signing. Bernardo Silva... now theres a cracking wee player}

1.) 15 Feb 2019 18:55:31
Not a huge mahrez fan DSG. A little nani like great highs but too many average games. Been 3 seasons since he has been on fire.

But obviously in hindsight sanchez has proved to be a poor deal.
Ole has options he has to figure it out. Players have to be accounted for. Spending lots of money doesn't guarantee you a good squad if its spent on the wrong players.
Ole just has to make what he can with the squad. He took over a squad in dissary and has worked wonders.
The players and ole will learn more from the defeat than the previous 10 wins and draw.
He is still on trial and i'm sure he will be working on finding the right combinations to get us through the next few weeks.
The limitations of the squad has been laid out for all to see.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 04:04:17
Mahrez is predictable. Often cuts in from right to take a shot. He also does not have elite level pace.

Maybe Lozano or Douglas Costa in the summer to fill the RW spot.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 10:08:36
1 loss in 12 and its all people want to talk about .
25 points out of 27 that's the yardstick so far .

4.) 16 Feb 2019 11:15:06
Everyone knows the glaring deficiencies in the squad.
Playing against an elite team made it visible.
Therefore the posters are giving ideas to close that gap in quality.
Nothing wrong in it.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 11:36:11
Confused jred, what is it that all people want to talk about?

How ole is going to cope with 2 of his front 3 injured?
How well ole is doing?
How he will have ro figure out a new front 3 combination with 2 of his 1st choice missing?

Please enlighten us as to what the only thing people want to talk about is?
Or did you just get out of the wring side of the bed this morning again😂😂😂.

6.) 16 Feb 2019 12:35:08
. We lost 1 game against a very goid team . had a bad day at the office, it happens .

"The limitations of the squad has been laid out for all to see. "
Really by getting 25 points out of 27 or by getting beat in 1 game .
😉 i know what your reply w8ll be so don't bother we both know your were talking about thr psg game .

7.) 16 Feb 2019 13:09:12
Not at all jred. I never once slated ole for the psg game in fact i was one who posted no point over reacting. It was no surprise.
The squad is light every single poster on here agrees but you. Every pundit says it. But you have a different opinion you think we have a great squad. Your like the little boy in seasame street doing his own thing. Or an ostrich with his head in the sand.
Then on the other hand you say jose didn't make one good signing for tbe club yet 7 or 8 of them are in the squad you think is great.
I don't think anybody is sure which jred posts jred heyckle or jred hyde.
Nobody mentioned psg in this thread you are just as usual a little grumpy and looking for a fight.
Our squad is weak. Not only that when ole came it was in dissary he has worked wonders. But he can only do so much we will be exposed against the better teams most of the time because our players are not good enough. Especially after our first 14 or so.

You said jose didn't get one signing right for this club.
You don't want the players he signed here. You never did but nobody else is allowed have an opinion of their own.
Really? Like seriously really?

8.) 16 Feb 2019 14:23:24
There's overreaction alright but it's not coming from the majority of posters on here.

I think it's mutually agreed across the board between fans, pundits, experts etc that are squad is limited in many places and we are still a few signings away from really competing.

What ole has achieved in such a short time is nothing short of remarkable.

But I do think the PSG game did show some of our limitations as soon as martial and Jesse went off. That's okay, PSG are just a better team. And hopefully in a few windows we have more options available too.

I am enjoying the fact that we just seem to want to play more attacking football now too. Great to watch and 2 great games coming up.

9.) 16 Feb 2019 15:17:25
Exactly angel.
Ole has done a great job so far. No complaints from the vast majority.
The club imo rightly decided not to buy in jan. Ole will to all he can. He has everyone pulling in the same direction. He has players that some fans me included were unhappy with playing better. He has players fans have said were not right for this club and should never have been bought playing better.
Changes will be made in the summer with a view to elevating the swuad from a top 6 team to a top team. It remains to be seen who will make those changes and who will be our manager. Until then all we can do as fans is get behind the manager and players we have, and ole can do as manager is get the best out of what he has. For me he has done exactly that.
Even missing lingard and martial tomorrow i go into this game with confidence. Chelsea are no PSG so we have enough to win this game.



12 Feb 2019 10:46:39
Ange di maria returning to old trafford. Probably goes down as one of the worst transfers the club has done, although sanchez is running him close.

Do you guys think he will get a bad reception? Seems more of a ex player that you just ignore instead of send vitriol at.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 10:53:36
Don’t think he will get any form of reception either way tbh, still feel under a more attacking manager he could have thrived here. Ah well, the past, Ole is at the wheel now.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 11:32:16
He won’t go down as one of our worst signings for the simple reason that we recouped a good chunk of his transfer fee. I would assume that he’ll be ignored, and hopefully go missing like he does in 90% of games.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 11:51:00
Di Maria could have been perfect for the right wing role under Ole.
Perfect for counter attacks with his blistering pace.

I thought we were getting the better player in Di Maria when Arsenal bought Sanchez. Unfortunately things didn't turn out well.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 11:59:09
The difference between him and Sanchez is that a) Sanchez wanted to come here, the other one didn't, and b) Sanchez does try but doesn't fit the system. The other didn't bother after September. I'm not sure how much can be put on van gaal when you have a player who can't be bothered and is waiting for his agent to engineer a move. A bad signing yes but there's been a few in the post Ferguson era. The worst? Probably but as Danny said we got most of the cash back.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 13:34:38
France suits him, he has frogs legs😂.

6.) 12 Feb 2019 16:21:02
Sanchez is not far away from having a performance that changes a few minds on here. He should fit this system and I am noticing improvements each time he plays, a fully fit and firing Sanchez could push us to a level none of us expect this season.

7.) 12 Feb 2019 17:31:36
Don’t see it at all GDS, looks like a player struggling to play anywhere near the level he used to. Doesn’t have the pace to stretch defences like Martial, Lingard, and Rashford, and doesn’t have the passing range or presence to play further down the pitch. Can see him leaving in the summer.



04 Feb 2019 19:32:58
I hope the club kept shandong lungengs contact details because i think we might be doing a lot more business with chinese clubs considering the wages some of our squad players are on.

Sanchez especially looks past his best and should be moved on in the summer. You can't have your highest paid player being a reserve.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 21:04:23
Its a shame. Its it worked out but we need to move him on. Recycle his wages into a couple of new, younger hungrier players who fit the system.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 05:27:57
He looks to have lost significant pace. He hardly beats a man in 1 on 1 duel. However, he still works his socks off and has a brilliant touch.
Hope he rediscovers his best form in the coming weeks.



27 Jan 2019 16:33:27
Reports that callum hudson odoi has handed a transfer request in because of a lack of oppurtunity at chelsea.

Weve experience a similar issue with paul pogba going to juventus in 2012.

Now the general consensus in the footballing world is that we have a extremely talented young player on our books in mason greenwood.

Should he be promoted into the first team next season? How do we make space for him in a squad loaded with attacking talent, maybe juan mata potentially not getting a new contract could open up a space for him in the squad.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 17:51:13
I think he needs a loan next season, he needs football week in week out at a much higher level than he is available at youth level.

I don't think the Championship is a good league to loan him out to, it leans more to physicality over skill.

I think a loan to one of Eredivise, Prineira Liga or the Jupiler Pro league would be most beneficial, he would hopefully play every week at a top level league and hopefully be ready to come back and challenge for a first team spot 20/ 21 season.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 18:08:46
A loan sounds ideal in theory but they never really work out for the player, its hard to find the right club to develop the player.

If the space in the squad is avaliable would prefer to see him training with the first team squad and getting game time next season. He turns 18 soon and physically i don't think the premier league will be too overwhelming for him as it would be for angel gomes as an example.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 18:32:01
Greenwood should 100% be in the first team picture next season. He stands out a mile in the youth set up.

In an ideal world, in 2 or 3 years time we will have seen Gomes, Chong and Greenwood break through and we will still have Rashford, Martial and Lingard. That would give us 5 out of the 6 forward players having come through at United and the other having been bought at 18. Imagine Gomes as the Sanchez replacent, Chong as the Mata replacement and Greenwood as a Lukaku replacement.

That's the perfect scenario for me, as unlikely as it is, as undoubtedly we will buy players, others will go and the youngsters may not fulfil their potential despite looking as good as they do at the moment. Players like Januzaj and Wilson have shown in recent years that promise doesn't mean they will become great players but Greenwood, Gomes and Chong look like they could be very good. Add Tuanzebe as a very good CB prospect and Henderson or Pereira as GK prospects to that and we have a lot to look forward too.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 18:44:52
I think with a first team of Rashford, Lukaku, Sanchez, Mata, Martial and Lingard the chances of Greenwood making more than a handful of appearances is minimal at best. And that's if we don't sign any other forwards.

The step up from youth football to the EPL is massive. I think the right loan would be the making of Greenwood.

5.) 27 Jan 2019 19:40:53
Hmm, I don’t remember Rashford struggling with the step up' sometimes you just have to take a chance.

6.) 27 Jan 2019 20:38:02
Could do worse than putting in a cheeky bid for Hudson-Odoi!

7.) 27 Jan 2019 20:40:48
Your right Tony, some take the Stephen their stride. But for every Giggs or Rashford there is a Beckham or Lingard.

I think a loan would be best for Greenwood as he needs to play every week, and looking at our squad he would have to really hit the ground running to do that.

Hell if he gets some game time this season he might do that. But if he doesn't then keeping him and playing him in youth football mostly for another year is more likely to stall his development. He needs to regularly test himself against better players.

Training with better players only makes a marginal difference, and is only really good for showing you how to behave and act in the first team.

Nothing beats playing games, and Greenwood needs to do that at a higher level than youth team can offer.

8.) 28 Jan 2019 09:03:03
Well said RJ 👍.

9.) 28 Jan 2019 10:23:59
I love Rash, but let's face it, even those of us who've watched the youth teams over the years didn't think he would make such an impact. His name wasn't overly mentioned as being the next big break-out academy player (hard to believe now! ) I think Greenwood is ahead of him at the same stage, both technically and physically. Give him a chance, I say, and maybe see about a loan next January should he not be getting the game time.

10.) 28 Jan 2019 11:57:08
Stevie, I would give him a game or two this season to see where he is at and whether he is ready for the first team. That way we know before the start of next season and we can decide whether its a loan to play every week or stay and fight for a first team place.



24 Jan 2019 21:23:34
Rumours that contract talks with juan mata have stalled.

Does anyone feel we shouldn't renew his contract and move on? he's had some good moments but never really clicked for him here.

Barceloan, psg and juventus rumoured still to be interested so obviously still highly regarded around europe.


1.) 24 Jan 2019 22:01:40
Juan Mata may be small in stature but he is a giant of a man. As a squad player and leader I would keep him every day of the week. He never complains, he never let's us down when called upon, and he has integrity, humility, and honour, qualities sadly lacking in so many players nowadays.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 22:30:16
Mata is a really good footballer and all round good guy.
For me he is past his best is on high wages and not contributing enough. He will have a couple if years left in him at a top european club as a squad player that play a style more suited to his strengths now.
I wish him well if he moves on. I just don't see him as being part of our present or future.
Fellaini the same. Seems a good guy but just not suited to our play.
Darmian valencia periera rojo all in the same bracket for me.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 05:14:53
Well said AJH.
Juan Mata is a quality squad player. His contribution is very important, when some of the first teamers are out of form or injured.
He has fantastic set piece ability as well. We need quality squad players especially while competing on all fronts.

4.) 25 Jan 2019 05:53:09
Absolutely agree AJH. Some players are just worth keeping.

5.) 25 Jan 2019 06:28:07
I really like Mata he always pops up with goal but I think it's time he moved on whenever he plays he always takes too many touches and slows our play down which took some doing when mourinho was in charge.

6.) 25 Jan 2019 08:18:50
Great guy, has played in the premier league for a long time and a valuable squad player.

I say keep him, I think a lot of our younger players could learn a lot from him.

7.) 25 Jan 2019 10:35:31
Spot on tony. He is one of my favourite players in the squad. A little magician who I feel we never truly got the best out of. When he joined us he was one of the best players in the league. Would have been amazing under an attacking manager instead of 3 defensive ones. Top professional and more importantly a great human. Would be happy to see him as a squad player if he’s happy to do so. If not, I wish him all the best because he deserves to be playing regularly.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 12:01:08
Totally agree tony- never complains and as sweet a left foot as you will find in the epl. He has been a good player when asked and EW must wish he had 10 of him as he is a media dream but a finale of letting him loose for 1 last big contract would be the fairest option. Would prefer if he went to spain or Italy so he didn't come back to punish us though. lol.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 13:15:10
I agree with Ken.
We can still live with Smalling and Jones but most or all of who Ken mentioned should be processed out. We should take this opportunity to have a “renewal” and strengthen the key areas we need. Yes we won’t be challenging the title this year but hopefully make into top 4. We should then try to settle our next year’s objective and get the right players in. Phase out those who does not suit how we want to play for next year’s team.

I’m happy we are playing with more pace and scoring. But we still need a few players for key positions and with those shipped out freeing the wage structure we can hopefully get the players we need.

It's easy to argue either way as Mata is a fantastic player and a great guy. He's one of the few footballers around who no one has a bad word about. However, he does not suit the type of football we have played over the past month or so. If that is the vision for the team over the coming years, then I'd say it's best for him to move on.

He'd do very well in Serie A, as the pace of play is not quite as demanding and technically he is as good as they come.

Great guy, good player but does he offer enough now? Is his wages value for money if he's a bit part player? Would keeping him block someone else's development?

Agree with tony 100% - i would keep him.

He would be a great player to keep around and both influence and work with the youngsters coming through. Especially some of our young attackers Chong, Gomes, Greenwood etc so good at working space, finding that incisive pass and nicking an important goal here or there.
So experienced and successful yet never let it affect him at all.
A great example. And a dream employee as far as Man Utd are concerned. A consummate professional. Something required to address the behaviour of certain players over the last couple of years.

But doesn't any person who lives in britain directly benefit significantly from britains past exploits as an empire and all the wealth and notoriety that came with it.

I assume he still has a few years worth of development at dortmund left.

They have already agreed to sell pulisic to chelsea in the summer so no pressure on dortmund to sell him.

Part of me thinks the sanchez contract is complicating things because if he is the highest earner at the club then all three of those players deserve to be earning more than him on both form and potential and the fact that sanchez has been abysmal.

That is obviously not sustainable so Getting him off the books would make lives a lot easier for the contract negotiators at the club.

Inter milan would be a good fit for him next season. The club where he probably had his most successful spell and got on with the most.

What about in addition to this the novel idea of the coach “coaching” the players and making them better not worse?

How come every signing we make gets worse than when they joined and instantly regrets coming to the club?

Almost feel sorry for Fred, he has made an awful career move.

I don't think the team needs to be built around pogba, we just need to buy a higher quality of player. We have one of those top quality players in pogba and it wouldn't be wise to actively look to sell him.

For example if we buy a top quality centre half and pogba stays another season then leaves, that centre half doesn't suddenly become a pointless signing because pogba is not there. Same for the right wing, central midfield and full back, these are positions we need to improve regardless is pogba stays or not.

If he wants to leave then fair enough, a club will have to pay a huge sum of money to get him as we did in 2016 to secure his services. I don't see many clubs paying that for a central midfielder who is still, rightly or wrongly, perceived to be ill disciplined and doesn't work hard enough.

My prediction is that by circumstance (because no one wants to pay the money for him) pogba stays at united and signs a new contract with a pay rise.

Reality is simply we need more signings like pogba and less like fred. Most of our signings have been freds which is why we are way behind city, psg etc.

Well if we were to be taken over by the sauds, i don't think there would be many transactions between us and psg leahy.

I would play the 4-4-2 diamond with mata in behind lukaku and rashford. Herrera, matic and pogba in midfield as ole is either protecting fred or doesn't think he's up to it.


{Ed004's Note - I think that is what we will see. Just as long as Mata is not on the right hand side}

Alderweireld, Chilwell/ AWB/ Telles, Neves/ Thiago and Dybala/ Pepe.

The second half would have been a sobering experience for the players last night. PSG really taught us a lesson last night in how to punish mistakes and in simple ball retention in the oppositions half. The amount of times verratti could easily play through our press was so frustrating.

We learnt what we've known from this team under most managers post fergie. We are a pretty poor team when we have the ball at our feet, we are much more suited to sitting back and hitting teams on the counter. That can only take you so far at the elite level where teams can keep the ball so effortlessly.

PSG are no arsenal, they will be able to restrict the amount of counter attacks you can have, whether that's through fouls or not losing the ball in silly areas.
