So Sanchez is unhappy with the summers recruitment so far.

Mort

1.) 08 Aug 2018 18:31:51
How did you come up with that?


2.) 08 Aug 2018 18:33:23
Players don’t want to go to Utd, Utd players don’t want to be here, Jose doesn’t like being here,
Glazers are going to have to dig deep to get out of this mess they’ve made,
3rd season for Jose, I’m normally upbeat on the Jose revolution at Utd, but for the 1st time since Fergie first came from Aberdeen, I’m genuinely worried where we’re going, I hope I’m wrong.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 18:50:14
It's starting to get really worrying now if we end up with boateng were in real trouble.
the guys more injury prone than any of our defenders
I can see this going only one way and that's looking for a new manager come Xmas.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 19:07:53
wwe haven't kicked a ball this season. had a preseason with hardly a first team squad. get a grip lol.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 19:23:29
Wow this place is depressing, getting embarrassing now.


6.) 08 Aug 2018 20:08:50
Lots of winnable games at the beginning of our fixture list. A few good results and the mood will soon change.


7.) 08 Aug 2018 20:46:35
A comment online attributed to Sanchez.


8.) 08 Aug 2018 21:21:43
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Reading some of this really is depressing, some of our fans are the worst around. It very much is a ‘it is what it is’ situation and as fans we need to try and be much more positive. Has everyone forgotten Leicester? Anything is possible and until 10-15 games have passed this season none of us really know anything. It most certainly isn’t a case of ‘worried where we’re going’, try and enjoy life a bit more. It’s too short and if you don’t enjoy supporting the side, support someone else.
Much love.


9.) 09 Aug 2018 00:31:18
What an arrogant statement to make. Just because some fans don’t like what’s happening with our club and voice their opinion on here it doesn’t make us the worst around or plastic fans.

I’ve been a season ticket holder some 1982 and car a few seasons when I was playing myself or away in the military I don’t miss many games Home or away. I think I’m a pretty loyal and patient fan and don’t have any entitlement to success but I do believe in doing things the right way.

Bring through youth and it’s happened since before Fergie, and most of all trying to play attacking football.

I don’t always demand shiny new players, in fact I think bar one of two positions we have a really good squad.

The issue is the manager, the owners have given him huge amounts of money to spend and frankly he hasn’t spent wisely or has spent it on players I presume after scouting them and tries to change the way they play. Mkhitaryen, pogba, Sanchez didn’t play the way he wants them to at their previous clubs. If I were Woodward I’d be seriously doubting whether to give him even more money to waste on 29 year olds with little sell on value when there’s other clubs buying better, developing better or shock horror merely getting the most out of the players they have.

Worst of all is his constant undermining of players confidence and abilities with his barbs and criticisms in the press. That’s not how you manage any employee in any business and it’s ceetainkg not how you manage multimillionaire professional sportsmen.

The man is outdated and becoming increasingly narcissistic. That’s my opinion and one that I’m entitled too. T might not make everyone agree with me but it also doesn’t mean I’m totally wrong either. But to tarnish everyone that doesn’t share the same view as being somewhat less of a fan for daring to disapprove of the manager is a disgrace.

I spend a huge amount of money following united and I’ve already given my ticket away for fridays game. For once united will Not be my priority this season and that’s because his style of football and his terrible attitude have turned me off. I’m saddened that it’s come to this but it does not make me a second rate fan. I just don’t see why I should spend my leisure time watching outdated boring football.


10.) 09 Aug 2018 09:59:29
I think Giggsy doesn't realise that other people have opinions too? I live in France now so don't get to OT now, so its TV for me. which is great as I can turn Joses borathon off when it gets too much for me. Our club is a mess!


11.) 09 Aug 2018 10:35:12
Superb post, Airforce. Nailed it for me.


12.) 09 Aug 2018 20:10:31
It’s utterly ridiculous. It’s an embarrassment. I’m not sure what some people prioritise! Football or transfers. It’s all becoming so artificial, 24hours and Sky will show the “who spent the most” league table so we can all whinge relentlessly about Woodward, the Glazers or Jose depending on your toxic point of view.

Lots of talk of Zlatan to LA Galaxy.

Mort

1.) 29 Jan 2018 16:39:00
It makes sense, I think Sanchez is his replacement as such. One large wage coming onto the wage bill it makes sense to move one off. Sadly I don't think Zlatan will ever get back to his best after that injury. I think the MLS is the best move for him now. I wish him the best and will always remember what he did last season.


2.) 29 Jan 2018 18:12:47
Totally agree shappy.


 

 

09 Dec 2017 13:37:31
Lots of talk of Griezmann to Barcelona today. Fingers crossed.

Mort

1.) 09 Dec 2017 14:43:56
Glad to hear that, I don't rate him much and he cost too much. I prefer MU sign Paula Dybaya. He is class,


2.) 09 Dec 2017 16:11:15
So 89mn is now lot more than 150mn+.


3.) 09 Dec 2017 16:13:56
He had his chance last summer. Personally I would question his desire. Don't want him at United now. Ferguson wouldn't bother with him again. Hope Jose doesn't too. It shows we are weak if we do sign him.


4.) 09 Dec 2017 22:27:45
Dwelling on the past is a weakness. Comparing everyone to fergie is dwelling on the past. Believe in the current manager. I'm pretty sure he's in a better position than us to make a decision on who we sign.


5.) 10 Dec 2017 02:26:00
No he isn't redtash, that is heresy! People on here know much better. There are so many free top top top players available this summer. We need to sign them all and then Griezmann is the world class cherry on top. If they don't sign who we think they should then it is Woody or the Glazers who should go.


6.) 10 Dec 2017 03:47:14
Why is everyone against signing Griezmann. He's not a bad player is he?


7.) 10 Dec 2017 04:39:02
Griezmaann is a very good player but going by what Ed002 has been telling us about the positions Mr Mourinho would like to strength, I don't see the point of spending that money on him, as this will hinder other purchases and he will be played out of the position with less effective.

The CM we are interested will cost a lot, means Pogba will be moved foword as I don't see either mid we're interested sitting on the bench.

Better we spend the money on other positions we are weak, rather than on Griez and play him out of the position.


8.) 10 Dec 2017 06:48:16
Aren't we better off moving pogba to play as the attacking midfielder to free him up a little from the defensive duties and bringing in another box to box midfielder if mourinho is not happy with Herrera?


9.) 10 Dec 2017 08:22:45
I think that's what Mourinho intends to, has we have been told among of his priorities is a CM.


10.) 10 Dec 2017 08:25:55
I question his desire. He agreed to join United then cancelled it the last minute making the club look foolish. Saying he couldn't leave Atletico in the lurch. Move on from him.


11.) 10 Dec 2017 09:57:32
Yes he's a good player. But I question the mental side of his game. I question his attitude, his desire. His constant snipes at the English weather shows he's not committed to coming here. He messed us around for months saying he was coming only to drop it to show loyalty to a club who are now trying to force him out anyway because they need the big bucks. And the fans turned on him.


12.) 10 Dec 2017 11:07:28
Agree with Shane and Mort. We went out of the way to bid and yet got declined but from AM but the player himself. Time and ride waits for no man. Am sure better options around and not like we don’t have the money to pay.
On another note we could sign Ashley Young’s cousin for the wings - Ashley Younger 🤣🤣🤣.


13.) 10 Dec 2017 14:11:54
Nonsense he is class player and we should do our all the sign him as he would take us to the next level. Yes he opted against joining us once but that shouldn’t stop us going in for him again. Need to put this ego aside.


 

 

27 Nov 2017 13:33:27
There's still some rumours of Ozil and Willian floating around for January. Either or both would be an improvement.

Mort

1.) 27 Nov 2017 18:13:51
Really big fan of Willian. think he would be a fantastic signing. Ed002, I know you've mentioned he could be an option for us before. I can't remember if you said anything about him in the sharkopod so I am sorry to ask again, but is there any possibility Jose might turn to him again?

{Ed002's Note - There is a possibility but Chelsea would not sell until they have sufficient cover and have told one suitor that he is unavailable.}


2.) 28 Nov 2017 07:35:25
Many thanks for that ed.


 

 

07 Oct 2017 10:23:29
Linked today with signing Phil Neville's son. Anyone know anything about him?

Mort

1.) 07 Oct 2017 11:31:17
He's Gary Neville's nephew.


2.) 07 Oct 2017 12:41:42
Neville Nevilles grandson.


3.) 07 Oct 2017 12:56:13
He was originally in the man city academy and now plays for valencia youth team. He is highly thought of by all accounts.


4.) 09 Oct 2017 14:14:29
Tracey Neville's nephew as well.

I would target 5 players this summer.

Wan-Bissaka, Digne, Koulibaly, Rakitic and Lozano.

Shift out the usual suspects.

Mort

1.) 14 Feb 2019 13:09:48
Squawka by any chance?


2.) 14 Feb 2019 13:55:49
Wan-Bissaka, koulibaly, Sancho and ndombele.


3.) 14 Feb 2019 14:09:21
Alderweireld, Chilwell/ AWB/ Telles, Neves/ Thiago and Dybala/ Pepe.


4.) 14 Feb 2019 15:09:57
Alderweireld, Sancho, Pereira and Kanté for me. I'd throw everything at Chelsea to get that wee gem.


5.) 14 Feb 2019 15:40:21
Meunier, Gaya/ Telles, Koulibaly, NDombele/ Neves, Sancho/ Lozano.


6.) 14 Feb 2019 16:09:42
Yes Squawka but they were all sensible and fit what we need.


7.) 14 Feb 2019 17:17:52
Ricardo Pereira, Koulibaly, Neves/ N’Dombele, Sancho and A striker to replace Rom.


8.) 14 Feb 2019 18:27:42
Ideally : Mbappe, Varane, Verrati, Jao Cancelo (RW, CB, CM and RB)
Realistically : Lozano, Koulibaly, Saul Niguez, Wan Bissaka.


9.) 14 Feb 2019 18:40:24
First would sell Sanchez, Mata, Pereira, Rojo, Darmian, Fred and even Lukaku (Since Rashford would be our main striker and we have Martial to cover him)

Players to target.

CB - DeLigt/ Koulibaly
wing back - Sessegnon and Wan Bissaka
RW - Hueng Min Son
CM x2 - Neves and Houssem Aouar
Backup Stiker - Raul Jimenez

Also we have plenty of young talent from the academy that is knocking on the first team'd door.


10.) 14 Feb 2019 22:12:30
Kante is a great shout, way they are going wouldn’t be unreasonable that Kante could be unsettled, dunno if there is interest there but he would be great in our team in his role.


11.) 14 Feb 2019 22:32:29
If Chelsea fall out of the top 4, and they constantly play him out of position, could be possible Welsh. Though he doesn't seem the sort of bloke that would actively agitate for a move. I'd still try, though 😁.


12.) 15 Feb 2019 09:18:22
Id definitely make an enquiry. Test the water.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 21:04:54
One thing you missed on deadline day was a late bid for Phil Jones from Holby City.

Mort

 

 

03 Feb 2019 09:55:36
The Burnley game showed that our strongest team contains De Gea, Lubdelof, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Pobga, Lingard, Martial and Rashford.

Which leave right back and centre back up for grabs. Dalot has a lot of potential but we need an experienced head in there. Centre back well the options aren't great. Jones is either injured or makes a bad mistake whenever he plays. Rojo is the same. Smalling would be a good 3rd/ 4th choice as cover an rotation. Bailly is a bit rash but again is good 3rd/ 4th choice but i'd move one of those two on to make room for Tuanzebe.

Midfield we lack options. Fred at best is still settling and may cone good next season. McTominay needs a loan for regular minutes. Garner may step up. We need a long term successor to matic.

Upfront things are better. Sanchez and Lukaku offer good cover. I would think about moving them on and bringing in Greenwood and Chong.

Ww don't need a lot but we do need to end the uncertainty over who will be manager and we need the DoF sorting. But its United so i'd expect it to drag on.

Mort

1.) 03 Feb 2019 13:58:06
Frictionless penetration when Lubdenof is in the team.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 16:09:15
D sell both Lukaku and Sanchez. I don’t see where Lukaku fits in and he won’t be happy not being fist choice. As for Sanchez, he may be chomping at the bit but he’s ineffective for but us and has been since we bought him. When he was subbed today Martial did mor win his first 5 minutes on the pitch than Sanchez had done all game.

We’d get good money and free up big wages, promote a couple of youngsters and buy a top CB, a top CM (I think we are light) and possibly a FB.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 16:19:45
We need a RB, CB, DM/ CM and RW at least. Sanchez needs to leave, he's just not good enough anymore, which is a shame. We should be moving to get Pepe at Lille now, would fit us perfectly.


4.) 03 Feb 2019 16:54:15
Bailly just put in another good performance. Progress.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 21:27:19
Ro-Shaun Williams to Shrewsbury. Interesting. He looked decent a few years back but hasn't kicked on.

Mort

1.) 01 Feb 2019 19:40:23
So did Tyler Blackett.


 

 

25 Jan 2019 22:26:10
I thought ole got his tactics spot on. Knows that coalsack pushes up too far and leaves space behind and got lukaku to sit in the space and attack it and it worked perfectly. Then second half the subs meant as it became more open chances were there for quick breaks.

Mort

1.) 26 Jan 2019 08:48:25
Coalsack, love it Mort.


2.) 26 Jan 2019 10:18:53
Couldn't spell it went with something close.

Is he even a wizard on the financial side? It can't be that difficult to sell marketing your company with a club like united.

We have a director of football: Ed Woodward. He should just cut out the middle man and appoint himself as manager as well.

Sounds like Woodward, build up rumours of big money transfer for rising star who's actually not for sale, chase him all summer with no success then on deadline day turn around and announce with signed a sponsorship deal with persil, gorilla glue and Kawasaki o an by the way I've signed Willian.

Would Barcelona be interested with de jong joining and the need to replace pique and Suarez in the next few seasons? I imagine Madrid now zidanes back is the main contender.

Mort

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want to make significant changes but need to top up funds (significantly) by selling. Juventus remain very keen on Pogba but will look to an option thay have as an alternative. The change of coach will make little difference to their interest.}

Fergie broke the British transfer record how many times? Pallister, Keane, Cole, Yorke, van Nistelrooy and Veron I believe. It was the glazers that stopped him spending the last few years, does anyone think he was happy not seeing the Ronaldo money reinvested and bringing in owen an Valencia only?

Wouldn't worry about it as based on all the forwards we're apparently signing we'll be playing 2-3-5 next season anyway.

Because le Tissier was perceived as a luxury player and lazy. He looked good on highlight reels and MOTD but often in games he was anonymous for 89 minutes before producing some magic and getting Southampton a late winner or equaliser. Perception is everything. Was he a player that could be accomdated at international level?

Ruddock is genuinely one of the worst players I have ever seen. I'm amazed anyone spent money on him. Just a wind up merchant and a bully. How Bruce never got capped is a mystery, would've thought was worth at least one cap.

86% possession and what did they do with it? Only one stat counts in a game an its at top left of the tv screen.
