I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.




14 Jul 2017 14:22:01
Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?


{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

Cheers ed.

Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying ยฃ155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With ยฃ155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

01 Jul 2016 15:23:25
Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}

1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.

6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.

7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}

8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.

9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?

10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?

12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.

14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.

15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.

16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and ยฃ80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.

17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

ED 002 u crack me up! :D.



09 Jun 2016 13:22:03
I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest leahy he had a very poor season for us, it was in stark contrast to the season before when he was arguably our best player, there was talk then of united being interested and after that his form took a terrible dip, that leads me to think that he would be open to a move and especially if it were one of the biggest names like utd, but with moshiri and now koeman at the helm i would think they would try and persuade him to stay mate..

1.) 09 Jun 2016 20:46:18
Cheers ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 09 Jun 2016 22:01:25
Has Koeman been appointed yet?

3.) 10 Jun 2016 00:03:29
African, which team do you support?
You seem to pop up every now and then out of the blue.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 23:13:45
Ed025 if your about, do you think ye will be a force to reckon with next year, with a new manager and some money to spend ed,
I was surprised to see Gibson getting a new contract.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think we would be competitive leahy and be in and around the top 6, its exciting times at goodison with the introduction of moshiri who has big plans for the club and for the first time in a long while lack of money cannot be an excuse. darron getting a 2yr contract shocked me to be honest mate, not just because of his terrible injury record but because of his off-field antics..

I've been watching Declan rice when he plays for a while now, he is one tidy player hard to believe he is only 19 years old, I'd be bringing him in if I had anything to do with united
An upgrade on fellani or any midfielder we have, and can play at the back.
Imo a fine player.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 18:15:28
Very good young player.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 18:15:36
Definitely one to keep an eye on. If he was available we should be in for him.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 18:40:19
Reminds me of a young Carrick.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 19:07:23
My thoughts exactly Fresh.

5.) 12 Jan 2019 22:12:03
Do you think he is underrated? ๐Ÿ˜‰.

6.) 13 Jan 2019 08:05:21
Good comparison fresh he was outstanding yesterday.
Aren't citeh looking at him as a long term replacement for fernandinho?

7.) 13 Jan 2019 10:50:45
Obvious replacement for matic.

8.) 13 Jan 2019 13:57:59
Would buy him in a heartbeat!

A great player with more to come.

Only problem is that he has just signed a new contract and so he is now in the silly money bracket if you want to buy him.

9.) 13 Jan 2019 20:09:59
A good old traditional Manchester United signing. Just actually bought him for my Football Manager save.



02 Jan 2019 12:57:17
Will we see Sanchez starting tonight and more importantly will we see an improved Sanchez, looking forward to seeing how he reacts.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 13:56:02
Why would you want to disrupt a winning team? I hope Ole plays with Lingard, Martial and Rashy up top, give lukaku and Sanchez 20 maybe 30 minutes.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:23:08
I'd replace Lingard in a heartbeat for Sanchez. I'm not a huge fan of Lingard, I think he flatters to deceive. He's done ok up until now but in the grand scheme of things he should be only a bit part player in a team with aspirations such as ours.

Sanchez has been woeful since he's joined but hopefully that's because of our slow ponderous build up play under Jose. I have a lot of sympathy for Alexis. He just seemed to be on a different wavelength to everyone else. How many times have you seem him close down from the front when no one else was? Now that the passes are one two touch and move, the midfielders joining the attack. Pressure on the ball from all areas and players getting into the box, I think this is tailor made for Sanchez to shine.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 14:32:10
Wow idk what to say, really. Have you ever played footy at a very good level? Its impossible to me to think OLE will disrupt the team for someone who up until now has been a disappointment so far and on top of that isn't 100% fit? I hope he starts the same team and bring Lukaku and Sanchez on the second half, maybe give Lukaku 30 minutes and Sanchez 20? That would seem to be more appropriate to me. But i do respect your opinion.

{Ed004's Note - Tbf reports are coming out that Sanchez has come back fit and raring to go. Lingard was pretty ineffective the other night so a rest might do him a world of good. Im hoping we see Sanchez, Rashford and Martial play as well. Jones in for Bailly and thats the only 2 changes we will hopefully see}

4.) 02 Jan 2019 14:54:09
Well as i said before i respect your opinions but even if he is fit i would still not play him from the start and if Ole is thinking about that i hope he plays him on the right wing, IF and i mean IF ole is thinking about that, i wouldn't disrupt a winning team, OlE did that the other day with the inclusion of Dalot and Fred and to me we didn't play at the same level with Herrera and sadly Young on the right, well even if he plays Sanchez we will beat Newcastle, its not arrogance its confidence. Something that i haven't felt since Sir Alex last season.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 15:05:29
What level of football have you played, were you think its normal to play the same 11 players in four games in the space of twelve days? Lingard has started the last 3. He was anonymous against Bournemouth. Sanchez by all accounts has trained really hard, even coming in on their days off to get back to fitness.

United are reportedly looking at another wide player. The end of Jesse Lingard as a starter in this team is imminent. If you can't see why fans would be excited to see Sanchez in this current team ahead of Lingard then there's no point in this discussion.

But you may have played football at a decent level which makes your point superior.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 15:44:37
An inform Sanchez is world class and is up there with the likes of Hazard, De bruyne etc, .

7.) 02 Jan 2019 16:19:44
I'm sorry but you worried about a 24,25 years old playing 4 games in 12 days, he should be able to handle that easily, Matic on the other hand. anyways. Happy new year! let's start the year with a win. See you guys in the chat.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 16:29:05
Very very harsh on Lingard who I think has been one of our stronger performers recently and is extremely good at finding space especially in away matches like tonight. I am not saying i wouldn't start Sanchez though as i think a fit and firing Sanchez in this team could take us to another level.

We have great options in attack, if we attack in number like we have recently we will cause any team problems, I have no idea what Jose was doing, but thankfully that is now in the past.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 16:29:26
We've found Jesse Lingard's account lads!

10.) 02 Jan 2019 16:36:30
Reman, Lingard is an average footballer who at the tender age of 26 has somehow fooled the footballing world into still thinking he's "young" and full of potential.

Sanchez is head and shoulders above Lingard. This shouldn't even be a debate. Ole has got the team humming and if Alexis can play anywhere near the standard we know he can, then our attacking line-up has just gone up another level.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 15:22:18
Ed004 - Where does Sanchez play? Pogba now operates as the attacking midfielder. No quite at 10 but certainly more advanced and has been making good runs into the box.

Rashford has been excellent upfront and Martial has done well from the left. With everyone fit I can only see Sanchez playing on the right however it's a position he doesn't like and hasn't played for a number of years. Whilst Lingard's final product can be frustrating his movement and energy is excellent and I actually think he's more effective away from home when teams play slightly higher and more expansive.

I tend to agree with Remanutd. I'd stick with the same team if everybody is fit with Jones coming in for the suspended Bailly. The team has been playing well, scoring goals and I think will benefit from some continuity. Whilst Martial on his day is brilliant I still worry about his attitude and application. I think he'll have to demonstrate some commitment and fight this evening and if he's found wanting then we have Sanchez on the bench chomping at the bit.

With Sanchez and Lukaku on the bench we have great options to change the game if needed. I wouldn't change a winning team just yet and I don't think Sanchez's form warrants a starting place in any case. I do concede however that he has proved himself to be a consistent world class performer over the years but we have younger players performing well in the positions he prefers to play and I'm not convinced he'd be any more effective than Lingard or even Mata from the right. It's nice to have some competition for places, it's keeps everyone honest especially in a winning team. Sanchez will have to seize his opportunity when it comes and remind us all of the player we know he can be in my opinion. I don't think we should fall into the trap of selecting players on reputation. With the team performing well Sanchez must be patient and demonstrate that he can be a team player and make an impact when needed. He couldn't have a better example to follow than Ole and the same applies to Lukaku as well. They can leave their ego's at the door as far as I'm concerned and must now do their talking on the pitch.

{Ed004's Note - I think Sanchez will be fine taking on the role Lingard has been. I cant remember which of the 3 games it was but Lingards average position was central alongside Rashford. During the game they took it in turns covering the right hand side. Martial provides the width on the left while Young provides the width on the right hand side. Sanchez in his last season with Arsenal and during pre season has played his best football centrally with players moving around him}

12.) 02 Jan 2019 15:30:26
I'm sorry i don't want an arguement, yea let's play Sanchez ahead of a 24, 25 years old that should be able to handle 4 games in 12 days easily, Matic on the other hand. but what do i know i'm just a fan, Happy new year and enjoy the game. i'm out see you guys in the chat.

13.) 02 Jan 2019 16:53:47
Ed004 - yeah fair point I suppose that could work I suppose Lingard has predominantly drifted in from the right with the full back providing the width!

14.) 02 Jan 2019 16:55:49
Reman, if you don't want an argument then don't talk down to someone with "wow idk really, what level have you played football at" nonsense.

GDS2 he's done alright but he's a squad player at best in my opinion but I see why fans might like him.

DLIB, all those positives you mentioned about Lingard, Sanchez does them all only better. His work rate off the ball is second to none. His link up play is better, finishing and crossing too.

Lingard adapted to the way Jose wanted to play better than Alexis. But right now, they way we are playing, movement, quick pace about the team. I'm looking forward to seeing Sanchez more than anyone. He's made for this set up.

15.) 02 Jan 2019 17:20:19
Rashford looks like he could do a job tonight on the right. Play Sanchez through the middle.

16.) 02 Jan 2019 17:30:21
Mumbles, when we are talking about talent and what a player has achieved then Sanchez is clearly ahead of Lingard. However, if we are judging them on what they have achieved in a United shirt then Lingard is head and shoulders above Sanchez.

I do think you underestimate Lingard, for me he should be one of the first names on the team sheet in a tough game, his work rate and intelligent movement make so much space for other players, he also has a knack of scoring in key games. For me he is an English version of Park Ji Sung, although I would say Lingard is more technically gifted than Park was while Park was probably a slightly tackler/ tracker.

I think Lingard should be rotated out of the line up tonight, but only because it would be his 4th game in 12 days.

It's important to pick players on merit and what they do for our club and not what they have achieved previously for other clubs. Otherwise the likes of Di Maria and Falcao would still be in our starting line up.

17.) 02 Jan 2019 17:38:01
Lingard 7/ 10 on form
Sanchez 9/ 10

different class.

18.) 02 Jan 2019 18:07:23
Shappy, I get that mate. If this was Joses team I would have Lingard in no questions asked. But the vibrant football we've seen on display the last three games suites Sanchez perfectly. Sanchez on an average day can eclipse Lingard on a good day.

Park would get into Joses team. He probably wouldn't get into Oles team. I'm not a fan of Lingard but I can see his value in the team. I just think everything is primed to finally get the best out of Sanchez.

19.) 02 Jan 2019 18:12:31
Ole has 6 forwards to choose from for 3 places. Jessie rash martial lukaku jessie and mata.
Mata sanchez and lukaku have not started yet the latter 2 because of injury and i'm surprised a little that mata has not played.
I also think that sanchez is going to do a lot better now that we attack in greater numbers.
I think either 1 of jessie or rash will be rested tonight. Its not that they can't play, of course they can. But if we have players in better shape then it makes sense to rotate. Every other set of forwards have been rotated at the big clubs.

20.) 02 Jan 2019 18:13:14
Shappy - I was going to make the same comparison to Park prior to threading your comment. Although not the most talented, they seem to make the players around them better whilst often turning up with important goals in big games. Fergie often overlooked more talented players for Park or Fletcher in big games due to the work rate and impact they had on players around them. Sanchez on the other hand seems to like to occupy similar areas to Pogba and they may suffocate one another rather than continent. However, after a hectic Christmas period I see this as a good opportunity to bring Sanchez in and see how he gets on under the new manager.

21.) 02 Jan 2019 17:03:51
Players like Lingard and Park never get the applaud they deserve, we will really know their worth when they are missing from the team.

Tireless Runs, Opening up spaces, Pressing higher up the pitch and many other things are also a part of football and not just scoring every game.

22.) 02 Jan 2019 17:14:05
Mumbles - I accept that pal Ed004 made a good point in that Lingard doesn't really play wide right and is given license to drift inside and get involved in the play. Sanchez will have to do a job defensively down that side with Herrera playing a more holding role and providing cover down the right for when Sanchez drifts inside and Young bombs forward. Sometimes subtle changes in position can either make or break the player and whilst in theory Sanchez should be able to adapt easily to that role I suppose we'll have to wait and see. I'm excited more than anyone by a fit and inform Sanchez but I wouldn't change a winning formula just yet. I fully accept your point and do agree that an inform Sanchez is an upgrade on Lingard. Let's hope Ole shares your vision and that Sanchez can return to form and embrace that role from the right.

23.) 02 Jan 2019 18:30:33
I'd like to see those 9/ 10 Sanchez games ๐Ÿ˜‚.

24.) 02 Jan 2019 18:51:56
Sanchez has done nothing since coming to Old Trafford, he has been a huge disappointment. If heโ€™s fit around raring to go then fair enough but Lingard has contributed twice as much as Sanchez both this year and last year. Southgate seems to like him as well as he keeps picking him so he must be doing something right.

25.) 02 Jan 2019 19:22:05
I'm sorry I asked now, I take it back.

26.) 02 Jan 2019 19:23:04
I think he will start Mata๐Ÿ˜Ž.

27.) 02 Jan 2019 19:30:05
This is a good debate between who should start. Lingard or Sanchez

The answer - MATA haha.

Both on the bench. have to love football.

28.) 02 Jan 2019 19:41:41
FZZ, in which game has Sanchez been a 9 out 10 for us? I must have missed that one.

Ken, Lingard is so good you named him twice, while missing off the anonymous Sanchez. Either that was an ironic accident or a wonderfully writing accurate post. Lol.

It will be interesting to see how Sanchez performs in an attacking set up, maybe we will see the best of him. Or maybe he is over the hill.

There is a logic to the argument that Sanchez plays his best football in the same spaces as Pogba. Can they adapt and work well together? It happens sometimes, other times we have the Gerrard/ Lampard type situation that England and all their managers couldn't solve.

I guess we will see which it is over the next few months.

Either way it's exciting to be looking forward to matches again and discussing something other than how badly our manager/ players/ board are performing.

Never said for us Shappy.

Overall career wise Sanchez is miles better than Lingard simple as that.

Ole, ole, ole.

I think Jose has tried everything he has in his locker to gat something out of this bunch of players, he has failed them they have failed him, with such a an average bunch of players bar 1 or 2 there is no more he can do, I think it has made him grumpier,
The only thing when and if he is sacked there isn't a manager out there that could win anything with the bunch we have now,
I'm m afraid tis a magician we need.

6/ 1 in the bookie yesterday for us to win, 6/ 1 against another prem league side!

2.) 17 Dec 2018 14:32:13
I'm honestly not fussed about winning anything at the minute, Leahy. I just want to have a semblance of enjoyment watching my team again.

3.) 17 Dec 2018 14:34:05
Jose locker check list

- But new cm for ยฃ50m, never play him
- Drop players
- Humilate young players publicly
- Play Fellaini as an AM
- Play Fellaini as holding mid
- Play McTominay at cb
- Humilate McTominay publicly
- Never ever drop Matic
- Put 10 men behind the ball, cross fingers.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 14:54:59
Yeah we know what's been done in public. we don't know all what's been done in private and to be honest we never should. If he's tried and failed privately to motivate and fell back on digging them out in public and still failed what else is there. Shaws responded but most of the rest haven't.

5.) 17 Dec 2018 14:55:32
That would do me as well 99.

6.) 17 Dec 2018 14:57:43
Danny them players aren't good enough for united to be fair, but I do agree his tactics are past it.

7.) 17 Dec 2018 15:14:57
De Gea, Pogba, Sanchez, Martial, Lukaku - all of them would have got into our last PL winning side. The likes of Herrera, Fred, Rashford, Lingard and Shaw probably wouldn't have been far away either.

8.) 17 Dec 2018 15:22:42
De Gea was?

9.) 17 Dec 2018 15:27:34
Mourinho is like most posters on here who understandably can not identify with this new generation of players.

Mourinhos tactics might be outdated, likes of simeone still seem to have success mind, but the biggest thing that is out of date are his man management skills.

He played his team last night leaving out pogba and played a midfield of โ€œhis guysโ€ fellaini, matic and herrera (somehow we have managed to find the only spaniard on the planet who can't play with the ball at his feet) and as gary neville pointed out none of them can play.

10.) 17 Dec 2018 15:34:30
David moyes would get more out of these bunch of players let alone any good manager. He's had plenty of transfer windows and he's bought in each one of them. He got the players he wanted and then wants to replace them as well. A little bit motivation and change in style can make these same players look better.
Henderson, milner and wijnaldum look world class midfield at Liverpool but if they were here we would be crying to sell them to some championship team.

11.) 17 Dec 2018 16:16:45
I think any of the other 5 managers in the top 6 would be rubbing their hands with the potential of the squad.
- The best goalkeeper in the world
- Two very exciting young wing backs
- Definitely need a commanding centre half (eg. Koulibaly) but have a decent partner in Bailey or Lindelof and a very talented centre half in Tuanzebe coming through
- Midfield really needs to be sorted with at least one top class midfielder that could be partnered by Fred or Herrera to press
- Let Pogba go more advanced and off the leash
- Could do with a top class right attacker but have talented ones like Rashford and Martial with room to improve.

So Leahy I can't agree with you. We don't have the best team but there is talent there. With 3/ 4 top signings and a proper COACH this team can challenge and be entertaining to watch. Cause God knows we at least deserve the latter.

12.) 17 Dec 2018 17:03:12
I can't agree with you, the wing backs haven't proved anything yet, dalot looks a player alright, pogba Fred Herrera I'd let go of, might keep Fred or Herrera for back up,
Rashford or martial again I'd keep 1 maybe., So that leaves Valencia, Jones, smalling, matic, lingard, lukkaku, fellani, Mata, darmin, rojo, young, mctominay, Sanchez, perrira, what do we do with these boys.

13.) 17 Dec 2018 17:16:03
Sailor. moyes took over a team that just won the league and got 5th or 6th so i don't think he could do any better with what we have now.
Personally i think we have the 5th best starting 11. And possibly the 4th best squad so winning n with what we jave is a pipe dream.
Id like to see some of our players playing better. But most of them can't i don't think.
Nobody wants to buy all these platters your so find of. No club looking to buy smalling fellaini jones young valencia. Herrera mata matic.
Our manager should be doing slightly better position wise. But could be playing more attractive football no doubt about that
Pogba martial lukaku in particular seem to only try 100% about half the time.
Our fitness levels are very poor. Technically we are poor.

Big challenges ahead. Let's hope those in charge appoint the right coach and give him another 400m because he needs at least that for us to compete.

14.) 18 Dec 2018 08:29:21
I said we'd be near challenging or at least playing modern attractive football. The last 5 years we've been doing neither. With either not good enough managers or managers from yesteryear with dated tactics. One game pretty much in the last 5 years we played a high pressing attacking football against spurs at home this year. The first half was the best we looked in years. Yes we died in the second half because of our fitness levels and not being used to that intensity. With the right training and coaching we can do it with most of these players. The articulated trucks, Matic, Fellaini, Lukaku must go for us to move with the times and play this type of football. Moyes, Van Gaal and an outdated depressing Mourinho. Doesn't exactly get the blood flowing. Yes it's the players on the pitch and they do deserve some blame but the majority must go to these managers along with questionable running of the club by Woodward.



02 Dec 2018 20:26:21
Our manager stepped 2 feet out o f his technical area against Southampton last season sent straight to the stands,
Klopp runs on to the pitch to celebrate with his keeper, what happens, nothing.


{Ed002's Note - Get out of the blame culture man.}

1.) 02 Dec 2018 21:03:26
I ain't blaming anyone man. It's exactly what happened, klopp could drive his vauxhall on to the pitch.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 22:29:37
Those grapes a bit sour?!

3.) 02 Dec 2018 23:32:29
I bet you wish Klopp was driving his Vauxhall into your Managers parking space. ๐Ÿ˜‚.

4.) 03 Dec 2018 05:51:34
There's no sour grapes here, Klopp hasn't won anything yet and Liverpool have hardly been saturated with success for a long time but Leahy is right Mourinho is treated somewhat differently than other managers.

{Ed001's Note - that is not true. Jose gets extra punishments usually because he has a suspended punishment hanging over his head for a previous offence. He gets away with things the first time too, but then he just does it again and so suffers. Jose is his own worst enemy as he constantly pushes the boundaries and limits of the rules and, when he is warned, he just ignores the warning.}

5.) 03 Dec 2018 06:39:11
Probably has something to do with the fact that when mourinho did it the ball was still in play, whereas klopp did it after a goal.

Anyone remember sir alex after bruces header against Sheffield Wednesday.

No need for the conspiracy theories on this one.

6.) 03 Dec 2018 10:46:11
Completely agree Leahy. We ask for consistency with the application of rules on the pitch and should expect the same off it too. It was completely inappropriate by Klopp and totally disrespectful to Everton.

7.) 03 Dec 2018 12:24:50
If Jose did that after a last-minute winner against Liverpool, I'd have been cheering him on. It's an emotional game. He knew he was wrong after, but totally understandable imo.

8.) 03 Dec 2018 12:46:25
United fans would be cheering him on 99 but everyone else would be saying, you can't do that it's disrespectful, probably the fa would ban him, maybe Jose should smile more often and show his pearly whites then he might get away with it.

9.) 03 Dec 2018 15:09:22
I agree, there's little consistency Leahy. Still totally understand him doing it, tho. The games getting more and more sterilized.
