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.



01 Jun 2018 12:37:16
Hi eds,

Do you know if united have offered david de gea a new contract on improved terms?


{Ed004's Note - Think they've been negotiating with him for a while. It would help if Madrid would sign a gk this season}

1.) 01 Jun 2018 13:12:51
With the rumours of Chelsea no longer looking to extended Courtois's contract and his child living in Madrid it sounds like there might be an outcome that keeps DDG at United for a few more years at least.

{Ed004's Note - That is exactly the scenario I am hoping for.}

2.) 01 Jun 2018 16:24:34
Interesting that Calderon ex Madrid president is mouthing off saying Perez and ZZ were constanty at odds. one of the problems is that Perez wanted rid of Navas and wanted ZZ to buy the keeper from Bilbao . whoever he is? according to the express/ star / sun .

So our goal now according to mourinho is to finish in the top 6

At this rate the goal will be to avoid relegation by february.


1.) 04 Dec 2018 12:12:57
tomorrow could be embarrassing.

no disrespect to clubs like Southampton or palace but the way we play and defend is a joke.

arsenals forwards could have a field day tomorrow.

something has to give.

if i was giving poor performance after poor performance at my job i wouldn't last.

we could be out of the top 4 race, top 6 race by xmas.

2.) 04 Dec 2018 12:20:24
He admits that making the top four would be a miracle. Although, still mathematically possible, very unlikely. So does that mean, we should sack him now, for not making the top four?

3.) 04 Dec 2018 13:57:52
At least he thinks we'll finish above Everton.

4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:58:24
what kind of message does he send to the players with comments like that.

we bang on about the players not performing but i'm not surprised when the manager is this negative,

why he still wants to manage a football team when he has no passion is beyond me.

5.) 04 Dec 2018 20:20:49
At no point have I called for Mourinho to be sacked.

However how can he be allowed to represent this club with the things that he has said in recent months.

We were 2nd last season, miles off the pace of City, but difficult to beat. We had the 2nd best defensive record in the league. We have added Dalot a great prospect but did not get the CB that we needed.
Having said that how do we play so poorly this season and ship so many goals.

Mourinho has embarrassed players in public both on and off the pitch to the point where we now appear to have players who have gone toxic.

Now he is allowed to state that we will be top 6 but top 4 is very difficult. That’s unbelievable.

Emery has turned Arsenal around in 5 months while in the same period Utd have gone the same distance in the opposite direction.
In June when Emery turned up at the Emirates what would have every pundit stated about which team had the better squad out of Utd and Arsenal. No need to answer but where would Utd be if they had a forward thinking positive manager like Emery!

I have no inside knowledge but there appears to be a game between Ed and Jose. Can Ed sack Mourinho on the cheap due to not making top 4 or breaching his contract or can José annoy enough people so that he gets the push ASAP and his large pay off.

We now have players who we would like to keep and extend their contracts but they won’t due to the current situation.

This needs sorting quickly so that we can keep the players that we need and also get rid of the ones we don’t need.

Pogba doesn’t seem to care by Jose bought Fred so why doesn’t he play him and bed him in?

His constant changes in team selection make no sense.

We are a laughing stock

Jose must go and then a few players can go with him

Ed where is the DoF?



29 Nov 2018 11:26:49
What are peoples thoughts on mourinhos reaction to rashfords miss?

Understand why managers show visible anger when a player fluffs his line such as guardiola and sterling even ferguson and ronaldo.

Just found mourinhos reaction strange, more of a “i told you so.


1.) 29 Nov 2018 12:15:50
He said as much in his interview didn't he? He said everyone has been asking me to play Rashford in the 9 position so I did and let's talk about that.

2.) 29 Nov 2018 12:27:05
Understandable reaction. Rashford not showing any progress in finishing or final ball.

3.) 29 Nov 2018 12:56:45
No big deal.

4.) 29 Nov 2018 14:46:17
Not really a big deal but ideally with a young striker who might be struggling for confidence it would be far better to see an encouraging reaction from the manager. A striker getting in to all the right positions but suffering from an inconsistent end product isn't particularly hard to fix, especially if it's all down to decision making. Hope Rashford isn't dropped on the back of it because we've looked a far more dangerous team when either he or Sanchez has led the line.

5.) 29 Nov 2018 15:06:15
Have no issue with what Jose did. A meal has been made of it because it is Jose. A video was doing the rounds of Fergie reacting like that to a Ronaldo miss. If Jose has taken rashford off because of it I could understand the hysteria. But he kept him on and he was our most attacking threat so clearly Jose sees something in him. Nobody can fault rashford’s effort or industry, but his final ball and finishing really needs to improve. Not sure Jose is the best manager for his development at this stage of his career. An attacking manager would be wonders for him.

6.) 29 Nov 2018 15:07:34
It's always about Jose.

7.) 29 Nov 2018 15:17:01
Rashford misses a sitter and Jose reacted like us fans reacted, disappointed, no big deal. Everyone calls for Rashford to play but when he does he doesn’t take his chances, he misses chances. Only so long the ‘he’s young’ excuse will wash.

8.) 29 Nov 2018 15:34:19
Not even a discussion point for me.

9.) 29 Nov 2018 15:38:18
If you thought jose’s reaction was bad imagine half the fans watching it. He’s lacking confidence and you could see that. If only someone like Rene mulensteen was still at the club to work with Rashford and martial. Heck he’d improve lukaku a lot. Never been replaced.

10.) 29 Nov 2018 18:14:38
At the highest level the margins are tiny, forwards need to be clinical. I have seen some great finishers down the years, most natural because it’s instinct on what runs through the head at that moment. Rashford has some great attributes, pace and some skill to wrongfoot the opponent but finishing is not natural by the look of it. He can improve and may become more confident with experience but whilst I am happy to be wrong I don’t see a 30 goal a season striker.

As to Jose’s response, can't win can he, no reaction he doesn’t care and for me, he, like every other manager, would be frustrated at the miss. It’s a non story pumped up because of who it is.

11.) 29 Nov 2018 18:24:06
I was disappointed with his reaction, but I loved the water bottle slam dunk.



23 Nov 2018 10:53:20
So mourinho comes out in an interview and digs out shaw, rashford, martial and lingard as childish, immature and lacking character.

I struggle to see the logic in this and how it will benefit the team considering two of those players (martial and shaw) have been our best performers this season.

Can anyone explain why at this stage of the season this is appropriate.


1.) 23 Nov 2018 11:35:09
Guess you believe anything and everything then mate? The interview was conducted a month ago in Spanish, the Daily Mirror have blatantly misinterpreted it and published it like they always do with Jose and would you believe it, our fans think it's 100% the truth and jump on the quotes instantly.



26 Sep 2018 19:58:50
Just out of curiosity what do posters think should be done regarding the pogba mourinho situation?

1.) Keep Pogba, Sack Jose (in the hope pogba settles under a new manager) .

2.) Sell Pogba, Back Jose (in the hope mourinho can build a side in his own image with the money) .

3.) Sell Pogba, Sack Jose (fresh start under new manager and rid of a player who would prefer not to be here) .

4.) Keep Pogba, Back Jose (in the hope they can patch things up and we can find form again) .

Personally i don't see 2 and 4 as viable options.


1.) 26 Sep 2018 20:35:26
Bring back Michael Knighton to do a few kick ups or peeping tom Martin Edwards, it certainly needs shaking up.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 20:39:26
Neither really want to be here anyway, so 3 is the only real choice. Backing any player over a manager sets a very dangerous precedent - irrespective of what you think of that manager. Pogba is as good as gone already, so 1 and 4 are out of the equation. Jose clearly does not have the full backing of club management, sonthat also seems an obvious choice.

Get rid of both and start afresh. That would be best all round - but that is a big decision and needs to be taken with a long term view of genuinely rebuilding something that is clearly broken. The fans need to accept this for what it is. The 'demands' for instant success are what is undermining the club now. Mourinho is clearly not the man to rebuild the team, but let's not forget that this is not properly Jose's team.

Putting tactics and playing style aside, he managing a team of players assembled by 4 different managers, each of which had, or has a different philosophy, for want of a better word.

Whoever comes in next will want to continue their way, and that will including shipping some out and bringing new in - and that will inevitably take time.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 20:44:00
If the club do anything other than back the manager over the player it sends out a terrible decisive message. A star player can run the club how he wants. It cannot be allowed to happen. The club have to back the manager right now.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 20:44:53
Get rid of both and start a new. There is no guarantee pogba will suddenly become the world class talent his price tag suggests. He is very very gifted but his understanding and application of the game is appalling at times. When he is on song he is a joy to watch. But he holds onto the hall too much and tries to cruyff turn in ridiculous areas of the pitch. The wolves goal was his fault because he was pissing about with the ball in the centre circle. He should have been busting a gut to get back and remedy his mistake. Instead he casually jogged. It seems disgraceful to be honest. You can have all the talent in the world but if you can’t do the basics right and lack the work rate, then you will never be the best.

On Jose, I do believe if he was FULLY backed then he has a tried and tested way of success. I’m NOT saying he hasn’t been backed, because he has spent a huge amount and he is not getting a tube out of his own signings. That is unacceptable. But the signings of Alderweireld, perisic and Willian would have made so much difference to this side. Add perhaps a back up striker like perisic and you have a team to challenge.

Question is if the board aren’t willing to back him to the hilt, why offer him the new contract? They knew what they were getting with Jose, i.e a short term fix, then they should have understood all the baggage that comes with him. Now we have a key player who is publicly slating the manager, doesn’t want to be here and was signed for commercial reasons. We have a manager who again doesn’t not want to be here and is peeved off that he has not got what he wants. This is a recipe for disaster. The club need to cut their losses and avoid any further embarrassment and trouble that this will cause. It’s an utter shambles. Not sure where we go from here to be honest with you.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 20:50:03
Shag Pogba, avoid Jose, marry Blind.

8.) 26 Sep 2018 22:02:05
I really want to see the back of both of them now, leaving the game disappointed I can handle almost but these two clowns embarrassing themselves and more importantly embarrassing the club i can’t handle anymore.

“When jones stepped up i knew we were in trouble”

Great motivational words there by jose, should do his confidence the world of good.


1.) 26 Sep 2018 10:26:12
not really got to do with his 'quality' (which he severely lacks) but his body language, looked scared when he was walking towards the box.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 10:32:55
He doubled down as well repeating the slating within the same interview! Also contradicted himself trying to pick a fight with the interviewer who basically summarised correctly what Jose had said just moments before, about him being disappointed with the attitude and performance of his players.

He is trying his best to look like he has control and everyone is friendly and all is well in the changing room, but by doing so he is blatantly lying. So he is getting caught out then throwing tantrums and repeating unintended criticisms about his players, to protect himself and to achieve the ultimate objective of portraying 'control'.

I have no doubt he didn't want to dig out Jones but he was too focused on trying to lie about the Pogba situation and trying to downplay the defeat. It's somebody talking that is not 100% focused, it's hard to lie if you are an intelligent person and the lie you MUST tell is so transparent. He seems all over the place and sadly this is reflected in our performances and the players attitude. Poor leadership is to blame for all of this.

he hadn't even thought through his reply about the captaincy issue, he looked at it from the point of 'I gave it, so I can take away', the world doesn't work like that Jose, makes sense logically, but it shows you made a mistake and you can't simply say it because of the ramifications. MESS.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 11:39:43
This current situation is a mess, get someone young, hungry and with a modern footy brain ideas, i think Howe would be a great appoinment but not many here want to give him a chance, according to one of the eds the club might be looking at Allardyce ( i still don't understand how or why they would be even contemplating the idea) get Howe in, Pogba, Sanchez out. These are mercenaries. Bring players who want to play for the club. I'd rather see our young kids out there than this bunch of clowns. How the heck are we getting so many lucrative deals? I don't understand, we play horrendous footy and its been a long time already. The people in charge are doing a bad job. Why Ferguson picked Moyes is beyond me, our debacle started there.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 12:03:03
When Jones stepped I knew we was in trouble too.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 12:11:57
I'd give Howe my full backing. I imagine most Utd fans would as well.

We've gone down the route of 'born winners' who are now 'retiring boring losers', so a young, intelligent, passionate manager would be right up my street. Doing very good things with some very average players.

6.) 26 Sep 2018 12:49:57
Tbh I felt the same. I thought he'd miss.

7.) 26 Sep 2018 14:42:26
Jones would trip over before dating a hot blonde let alone putting the ball in the back of the net.

8.) 26 Sep 2018 15:28:20
Moyes was doing some very good things with very average players too.
I am not comparing moyes with Howe directly as we all know Howe plays a much better brand of football.
Maybe keep in mind how it was said that Moyes did not have the backing of the players at United as he was not a big enough name and how some people also said we would never have made the big signings under Moyes either as he these multi-million players wouldn't respect him.

9.) 26 Sep 2018 18:43:48
Imo Moyes didn't do anything good at everton nor at any other club he has been after that. He is just a horrible manager who at everton had a couple of decent players to not make him look incompetent (because that's what he has looked at any of the others clubs he has manage) Howe on the other hand has a more aggressive way to play footy and he is doing it with some very average players, just my 2 cents. Conte, Luis Enrique, Guardiola got their chance without doing much so why don't we give Howe a chance? Instead of another primitive minded manager like Allardyce? If we are going to compete domestically from now on we have to beat Klopp and Guardiola's way to see and play footy. Its as simple as that and we are really falling behind.

I think if a player who is of top quality becomes avaliable such as alderweireld we would still go in for him because even if a new manager comes in, he's not the type of player who can't adapt to a new manager.

But agree we should use the january window to get rid of players. Romero, valencia, young, smalling, jones, rojo, herrera, matic, fellaini, periera, sanchez, darmian etc would probably be for sale before you even get to players who want to leave such as pogba bailly and martial.

The club have proved time and again, it is one thing having a list of player you want to get rid of and actually getting rid of them.

Due to wages and transfer fees we haven't been successful in getting rid of anyone.

Our best avenue is to forego a transfer fee and let players contracts run out like smalling, mata, jones, valencia, young and herrera.

There should be no room for emotion when dealing with these contracts.

We have the highest wage bill in the country and are below bournemouth and watford.

We have an oppurtunity to get rid of a lot of players whose contracts run out at the end of the season, yet i am reading reports that valencia and young are getting contract extensions.

Baffling to say the least.

As much as he has been poor this season i don't see what he can do when all the other players are so detatched from him, mata pereira were meant to be the wingers tonight yet spent most of the time picking the ball off of the back 4.

I assume the deal was in the pipelines before jose mourinho came into the position but as ed001 said the move would have required mourinhos approval for it to go ahead.

Especiallly considering he had just got into the job, his authority was probanly at its highest when he first came in, everyone was optmistic that we had the right manager in.

Also when you come in and the midfield options are an ageing carrick, fellaini, herrera and an ageing wayne rooney, mourinho was never going to say no to paul pogba.

I personally feel that gomes has little chance of making it in a mourinho team because of his height.

Same with chong unless he fills out and adds some muscle, don't think he has a chance under mourinho.

Greenwood however from what i've seen of him has both the technical and physical attributes to make it under any manager, whether that's at united or another club.

Seems to happen with most black players who are percieved to be flashy and not humble.

Similar sort of thing happening with the stick pogba gets but on a lesser scale.

Almost as if we didn't start the season on such a negative, defeatist tone we could have had an alright season.
