Late double deal for Toby and Danny Rose?


1.) 09 Aug 2018 12:47:17
Yeh there having there medical as we speak.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 13:01:57
And they are also giving Alli on a season long loan with option to sign for 20m.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 13:18:49
No chance of levy strengthening a top four rival with one player ket alone two.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 13:42:06
Sailor, clean your ears out. We were offered the tea lady Sally on a loan deal. Woodward is considering as she marketed along with our new bootlace sponsor who are PG Tips.



29 May 2018 19:00:53
Anyone know anything about Diogo Dallot who we are apparently signing? Young Porto right back. His wiki page already updated as a Man Utd player.

Personally never heard of him and I'd prefer we go for his brother Win.

Thank you I'm here all week.


1.) 29 May 2018 19:18:33
His wiki page says he's a right arm cricketer and his current team is man city 😂.

2.) 29 May 2018 19:18:41
Boom Boom Eric 79! I think his brother Win has signed for Huddersfield, or at least I heard he was in talks with the terriers.

3.) 29 May 2018 20:53:54
Win Dallot? I've heard he can turn on the gas.



29 May 2018 13:42:47
Emre Can on a free anyone?


1.) 29 May 2018 13:50:44
Can he cook and clean? If so send him my way.

2.) 29 May 2018 13:57:43
Juve have him pretty much wrapped up. Wouldn't say no mind think he is a very good player. Will flourish at Juve.

Haha FZZ brilliant.



21 Jun 2017 08:11:39
Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.



30 Jan 2017 08:19:30
Hi all. Amy info on where Young may be off to please?


{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

1.) 30 Jan 2017 11:20:36
"I am waiting for January 31 to know what is going on. I am not happy if he leaves, but he is the only player that I am informed has a possibility of leaving.

"That is why he didn't play and I gave chances to other people, because I don't know if he is going to stay. If I could choose, definitely yes he would stay with us. "jose on young

2.) 30 Jan 2017 15:57:22
I think he might go to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 19:57:09
back to watford maybe

08 Nov 2018 11:59:29
Well that was awesome.

Cried there credit is due - we rode our luck but who doesn't away at Juve. Jose hit his tactics and sins spot on, and Allegri invited us on them with his changes at 1-0.

Great win, fabulous result, and here's to confidence growing. Martial, Herrera, Lindelof and Young played very well last night.


1.) 08 Nov 2018 16:23:38
At times we do look decent. A better, natural right back, a proper right winger, a more mobile version of matic and an experienced centre half would finish it.

2.) 08 Nov 2018 17:52:04
Spot on Mort totally agree with you pal.



06 Nov 2018 12:34:20
All the Jardim lovers on here are going to be sad. Looks like he may be off to China if reports are true.


{Ed002's Note - So you are unhappy with Zidane as manager already?}

1.) 06 Nov 2018 13:33:43
Ed man united already have a manager and as many seem to have forgotten a very successful one all this talk of Zidane is very disrespectful! Haha.

{Ed002's Note - You all told me he was taking over 6 weeks or so ago after Mr Mourinho was sacked on the Friday night.}

2.) 06 Nov 2018 13:53:51
I think you read the papers too much ed I would advise your take little notice of the newspapers they often write articles just to sell newspapers or worse to gain clicks to a website. Haha sorry ed couldn't resist a little sarcasm. imagine we beat city at the weekend 6 points behind with 26 games left might as well write the season off.

{Ed002's Note - I think winning the league this season is off the table but getting embroiled in a fight for the top four might be a very good and achievable target.}

3.) 06 Nov 2018 14:17:45
Apparently Real are considering jardim. Interesting if it happens.

{Ed002's Note - Well you will know in a few more days.}

4.) 06 Nov 2018 14:17:54
I would tend to agree however we string a few results together manage to sort some of the madness in January maybe we can make a push. I'd like us to look at a CB and a right winger in Jan. depending upon who leaves.

5.) 06 Nov 2018 14:46:40
Interesting. Thanks for the reply ed.

{Ed002's Note - No more than a week.}

6.) 06 Nov 2018 18:51:02
However I will add that if he wants to sign as a player, I reckon he could teach our guys a thing or two still 😁.

7.) 06 Nov 2018 18:47:03
Never wanted Zidane, never suggested he should take over at any point. Can’t take a few comments from some Utd fans as general consensus Ed.

If we had backed Jose in all he had asked, I have no doubt we’d be more successful. My gripe is we haven’t so why persist with him?

8.) 06 Nov 2018 19:44:32
I agree Eric. Baffling why we haven’t but then we are keeping him. If he is backed I think he can get us challenging tbh.

9.) 06 Nov 2018 21:06:59
Park, the club didn't want to pay the prices that were being asked of for 30 year old players. I actually think it was the right move. We have had our pants pulled down a few times and I think they made the right decisions here.

We might suffer in the short term but hopefully will pick up the right players in the future.

10.) 06 Nov 2018 22:19:16
I’d agree with that angel especially on the likes of Willian. But Alderweireld was a necessity. Anyway, it does feel we may have just turned a corner. But I would still look to replace Jose in the summer if we can prise away someone like Poch.

11.) 07 Nov 2018 02:59:19
William on the right and toby at center back would have transformed this team this year in my opinion.

But at some point space has to be made in the squad to bring in shiny new players.

12.) 07 Nov 2018 13:27:57
I agree with Angel. Many people are complaining about Matic but that's what you get when you sign 29 year olds. A couple of seasons at best.

So the club is right not to spend so much money on players the club will have to replace halfway through their contracts.



20 Oct 2018 14:44:48
There's life in Maureen just yet. Great to see that fire in the belly and a good point at the Bridge!


1.) 20 Oct 2018 14:53:11
Feels like a loss.

Once again we can't concentrate and concede to many goals.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 15:25:43
That is not a good point when your a goal ahead in the final minute of injury time and you leave their best header of the ball totally unmarked at the back post when your clinging onto the coat tails of everybody else for dear life.

I fully expect us to be 7 points behind the top 4 after the weekend and we're not even in November yet!

Taken out of context a draw might look good but after terrible away defeats to Brighton and West Ham we simply had to hold on for the win today!

More amateurish defending in the final minute it wasn't even a surprise. But hey I suppose a point is ok if we want to stay ahead of Wolves and Watford I don't expect them to get anything at the Bridge!

3.) 20 Oct 2018 15:44:17
Sorry my last post is vitriol nonsense nothing more than hot air born out of frustration! I'm just fuming with that last minute equaliser and it's probable consequences in such a vital game! Hang on for another 60 seconds and our season looks so much brighter. I'm even giving myself the thumbs down 👎.

4.) 20 Oct 2018 15:59:20
Two shocking goals to concede.

People are forever saying they don't mind losing as long as we play well and have a go. Well done Jose for going to the bridge with an attacking lineup and having a go.

We have to get some consistency with this team, let them learn to play well together.

5.) 20 Oct 2018 16:31:19
Great result after a frustrating first half, but we put up a fight in the second half when I thought we would roll over. Even better as we seem to play with 10 men with Pogba on the pitch. Great to see us go toe to toe with a rival and come out with something positive. Shaw MOTM for me, Martial was very good second half, Young, Smalling and Lindelof did well too.

If only Harrera had taken that chance. Worth mentioning there was nothing wrong with Alonso for our equaliser, he was just trying to get play stopped.

6.) 20 Oct 2018 17:50:00
Totally deserved the win today, was tough to take.

But step back and take a look at it on the whole.

We have been struggling recently, players not playing well and underperforming.

That second half v Newcastle, the attacking style which we employed today away at an unbeaten team who have been playing a lot better than us shows that we can indeed deliver.

The players have struggled for whatever reasons but I think we showed a lot of fire and passion today and long may it continue.

If we play like we did today for the remainder of the season, add the ever growing confidence, we will be more than a match for any of the top teams.



30 Sep 2018 20:54:44
Maybe Rui Faria leaving was a bigger deal than we thought?


1.) 30 Sep 2018 21:07:28
Had no bearing, Jose falls out with people simple as that.

2.) 30 Sep 2018 22:16:45
So you’re saying his assistant had no influence whatsoever? Why are they there then? Since Faria left our Defence has deteriorated and our football is even worse. Must be a coincidence.

3.) 01 Oct 2018 09:08:44
Not sure I said that or do you struggle with reading?

4.) 01 Oct 2018 09:11:42
Jose has a habit of eventually self destructing, especially in his third season at a club.

However, the loss of his assistant, a man who has been with him practically his entire career will obviously have been a blow to him. Faria was Jose's closest confident. His sounding board. The man to bridge the gap between the manager and the players. With him gone and replaced by Carrick, a man who for obvious reasons will be far closer attached to the players than the manager, that will obviously loosen Jose's grip on the dressing room.

Which in my opinion has probably hastened the creation of the rift between the manager and a section of the players.



28 Sep 2018 23:00:23
The circus has truly descended on our club, all brought about by Mourinho.

Let's be honest, we all thought he would change his ways somehow and embrace Utd. He hasn't at all, our football has been dire for 5+ years (prior to Jose joining and we have seen no improvement since) and we may as well write off this season too.

I'll say it again, how much worse off could we be with a strong DoF and Giggs or young attacking manager in charge who understand what we want to see and embrace the old club ethos.

This was always a marriage of convenience for both parties where neither will admit it's not working and time to move on.


1.) 29 Sep 2018 09:29:56
I wouldn’t all the blame at Jose’s door, sure he’s said and one things you cringe at but again why is anybody surprised, Ed Woodward, the club, the fans all knew what we was getting in JM, we know he’s chequebook manager, we know he won’t stand for certain players and attitudes so why are we shocked. The players need to take a lot of responsibility, is very easy to lay the blame on Jose but out on that pitch, the missed chances, the poor passing, the lack of effort, that’s on the players. Embarrassing comments like that from Paul Place is on him. I have been a staunch defender of Jose or more not repeatedly sacking managers but things cannot continue as they are, I think that we all agree we are not going to win the PL or CL and is an FA cup run/ win enough? Prob not, either way I see this as Jose final season anyway, I just hope when the next manager comes in, when we are in rebuild again and results don’t go our way every time which they naturally won’t in times of upheaval, that we as fans have more patience, I don’t want to see in 2 years another managers head being called for. Hopefully we have someone who embraces our traditions and way of playing, that our identity is back and not we can accept poorer results ulif we can see an end product coming. Maybe Giggs as manager wouldn’t have been such a bad idea after all, I do think ex players should be somewhere in the set up going forward. Anyway, West Ham away, a fixture we should win, I’d hate to think of the apathy if we are defeated today.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 10:58:06
Welsh, I doubt you will see apathy if we lose, just more mad hysteria. Eric, we didn’t all think he would change, many of us called out the likely challenges and a couple are plain for all to see.

The football is safety first. Jose will say he doesn’t have the plate s he wants but he isn’t playing some of the ones he bought. He is pragmatic, whoever we buy I doubt we will see swashbuckling football.

The meltdown at Chelsea was never properly explained but it was clear he had lost the dressing room. I have no idea how things are in our dressing ro but the continual undermining of players isn’t helpful.

However, we need to detach Pogba from this debate as this is a completely separate issue. PP is a social
media tart whose reputation currently massively outweighs his contributions. Signing Pogba was a mistake on the football club not. It I am sure Woody loves the commercial aspects.

Back to Jose, if he has a plan then I’m not seeing it. We’ve bought a swashbuckling CF who hardly gets a kick, we bought PP but play him in a different position, it’s clear he has no trust in the CBS, 2 of whom he bought. I think he looks lost right now and who knows where that will go.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 11:01:57
I despair of the continued calls for Giggs, he has become this mythical creature to some that will solve the issue. He has no experience bar four games and had much publicised personal issues in the press that I think the board may feel is not going to be helpful as the Manager. The only thing in his favour is if we appointed a DOF and the role became coach at which point the structure and back room staff remain but the coach is transitional far more than a manager. It would in effect move the club away from a stable long term manager, to more of a Barcelona model. Even so in the mess we are in inexperience is very very high risk right now and I doubt Giggs is in their thoughts. Giggs needs to manage a Newcastle and show he can make it work before we trust him. I said all this years ago on here and maintain that.

In terms of blame, easy to point fingers at the manager and he is accountable but a lot of responsibility lies with the players. Forming cliques, stamping their feet, not putting 100% in and behaving unprofessionally is unacceptable. They need to produce and start showing they deserve to wear the shirt and they should be sold if they don’t.

{Ed001's Note - you do realise Giggs has been managing Wales for a while right? I think he has 5 games under his belt in charge of them to add to his 4 at United now. I don't think he needs to go to Newcastle just yet, I am sure he is fine where he is for now.}

4.) 29 Sep 2018 11:27:45

Yes, I think he seems to be doing a decent job with Wales, but 9 games in total is not a CV that should impress United under its present set up. I agree it is not yet time for a Newcastle, that should be at some point in the future. It has to be said that Lampard and Gerrard are presently showing the way and perhaps showing Giggs the way. I wonder why such clubs didn’t take a chance with Giggs?

{Ed001's Note - because his wage demands were out of reach.}

5.) 29 Sep 2018 12:05:19
Thanks Ed, very short sighted of him in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - he believes he deserves a certain wage level because of who he is and what he would bring to the club, in terms of players wanting to sign, sponsors wanting to give money etc. I think you are right as well and he certainly lowered his demands when he took the Wales job.}

Come on now guys. I’m As unhappy as the next person about our slow start, but relegation fodder? Let’s get a grip. We are currently a top 6 side - and need a new injection of ideas too to bottom to stop the decline and start improving.

It’ll be interesting when Richarlison does a Lukaku and asks to leave for a bigger club in the summer.

Nonsensical posts about Lukaku. I would like to see Sanchez given a go to provide real competition up top with Rashford and Martial wide forwards and Mata 10, but Lukaku is integral to the way we play and he will bounce back and score 25+ this season.

Top notch centre half to play alongosfie Lindelof and a right sided attached (or just play Rash, Martial and Sanchez as a fluid three) we have a chance of easily hitting top 4 and winning a cup and plan for the summer. Then Back Jose or move him on.

We look much better with him up top. Finally some competition for Lukaku. I think if he starts playing and scoring he’ll be fine and a fine addition to our squad.

Of course if he wants to leave then so be it - that’s his choice and he is free to go wherever he likes. I’d much rather see us play Rash and Martial and let them be a success.

Perhaps we should just retire the 7 shirt - seems to be a jinx.
