Talk Sanchez agent been in talks with Inter and Juventus. Wages stumbling block currently.

Mort

1.) 15 May 2019 19:37:29
His next move says a lot. Bet he stays and picks up the moronic wage we gave him.


2.) 15 May 2019 19:59:20
I think he will move. I think it will cost us but i doubt he will be here come next season.
Rash martial and jessie will stay i think and i guess mata lukaku and sanchez will leave this summer.


3.) 15 May 2019 20:59:28
Yeah, can't see how he stays. I think it will cost the club dearly but they'll move him on.

I'd imagine Ken if those 3 do go, there will be 2 incoming. Quick and agile forwards who can interchange I'd say. It's the way forward.


4.) 15 May 2019 21:02:23
I would keep Mata as he is one of the good guys to have around the dressing room.


5.) 15 May 2019 21:39:19
If Sanchez and Lukaku go then I'd be line to keep Mata for one last season. But apparently he wants 2 years. Personally I'd let him go. Too slow, doesn't offer enough on the pitch. But good to keep around the training ground.


6.) 16 May 2019 10:59:18
Tired of this good guy around the dressing room, given the state of our team i would suggest he barely has an impact at all. We cannot afford to carry nice guys for the sake of it. This squad is terrible we need players that can perform on the pitch as well as impact the dressing room. Mata is neither of those.


7.) 16 May 2019 15:22:54
Fantastic idea to have a nice guy around the dressing room for £5 to £7 million a year. let's bring a court jester in too while we’re at it.


8.) 16 May 2019 18:46:06
Singh i doubt you have ever been in the dressing room.


9.) 16 May 2019 19:11:52
Very true Ken but i am just going by what i know of him through the media. He could well be a nob. 😂😂😂.


10.) 16 May 2019 20:35:11
Nice bloke by all accounts singh😂.


11.) 17 May 2019 02:47:17
Nice guys are a bit of a luxury for us at this point.

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.


 

 

29 Jan 2018 16:27:46
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.

Ole's request to sell Martial apparently rejected by Joel Glazer as he see's him as United's Pele.

However reports are unconfirmed that on hearing this Woodward immediately attempted to sign Pele.

Mort

1.) 22 May 2019 08:57:55
Pretty sure he means that Martial plays like Pele would now.


 

 

11 May 2019 23:09:15
Its like this.

Is Herrera worth £200k per week? No.

Should we have let his contract reach 6 months from expiry before starting talks? No.

Would he have signed a contract if offers 18 months ago? Yes.

Was he disrespected by the club? Yes.

Is he right to leave? Yes.

Is he the most talented player in the squad? No.

Was he a hard working, popular player who got the club? Yes.

Going into this summer we needed two midfielders even before Herrera left. Does anyone have any confidence in the club delivering replacements not only better in quality but equaling his commitment?

We managed to give Jones, Young and Smalling new deals. Even, bizarrely the total waste of space that's Rojo. But not Valencia. Its baffling the decision making that's gone on the last two or three years.

Mort

1.) 12 May 2019 05:36:23
Jones, Young and Smalling should have joined Herrera out of the exit door.

Far to many mediocre players have allowed to play their trade at OT.
Hopefully the club has a clear plan and sticks to it.


2.) 12 May 2019 08:55:04
Get Rice and Loftus Cheek. Both young, fit and probably gettable. It’d solve our CM problem.

{Ed025's Note - rice and loftus cheek?, that sounds like a meal you get in the bayou of the southern states of america mark.. :)


3.) 12 May 2019 11:09:19
I like Rice, he looks like he is going to be a great player. Yet his game is about breaking up play. He is decent on the ball, but in no way a playmaker. In that respect he is similar to McTominay, although better defensively but not as good going forward with the ball.

If we are going to sign a midfielder from an EPL side this summer for me it would have to be Ruben Neves.

As for Loftus-Cheek, good player, but not a patch on James Maddison.


4.) 12 May 2019 11:24:21
Tielemans would also be a good option to replace herrera, did very well playing between ndidi and maddison in leicester midfield. Could see the same thing between for example Matic and pogba.


5.) 12 May 2019 11:54:58
Hmmmm, I'm not so convinced on Tielemans. He is clearly a very talented player, and he has adapted to the EPL very well. Yet he disappears in games where Leicester aren't dominating. He is also a little lazy defensively, with Pogba having the same issue and Matic not having the mobility to cover. I would have serious concerns about that midfield being able to impose itself on opposition teams. Slow, immobile and lacking work rate.


 

 

07 May 2019 22:33:08
And that's why he shouldn't be in the discussion of the greatest players ever. Truly great players turn up when needed and turn the game.

Mort

1.) 07 May 2019 22:36:40
Messi is one of if not the greatest players to ever set foot on a football pitch.


2.) 07 May 2019 23:05:00
He is a fantastic footballer, but his performances for Argentina have shown that he cannot carry a team, unlike Ronaldo.


3.) 07 May 2019 23:06:53
Messi is Messi, one of the greatest but Liverpool deserve credit for tonight, very sharp they were great performance,

{Ed0333's Note - Thankyou Leahy


4.) 07 May 2019 23:08:05
Very true Mort. Ronaldo wouldn't have let a team beat him after his team being 3.0 up. Hats off to Liverpool for showing a wonderful team spirit tonight and players fighting for each other like there is no tomorrow.

Thats why it doesn't matter how much talent you have if you don't have the right mentality then talent will go to waste.


5.) 07 May 2019 23:17:12
Agreed Caolan. Reading that, youd think he's never turned up in big games.


6.) 07 May 2019 23:18:31
Give me the right medicine and half time oranges and I could have played in that Barcelona team a few years ago.


7.) 08 May 2019 00:22:32
Messi tried to turn up, but it’s hard to have impact when you’re side is being completely pinned back in their own half.


8.) 08 May 2019 00:29:21
you have got to give liverpool credit they stopped him.


9.) 08 May 2019 01:05:17
Congratulations to Liverpool. They had a mountain to climb to beat Barcelona after the first leg. But they stuck to it and willed themselves back into it. A great comeback for them.
Well done.
Could we have an all EPL final?

{Ed0333's Note - Thankyou Perth very kind of you.


10.) 08 May 2019 08:24:14
No worries 333.

{Ed0333's Note - have a good day mate.

Apparently John Murtough turned down the technical director of footballing sports job as he wanted our legendary ex-number 11 to be manager.

He wanted the new team to be Giggs and Murtough.

Mort

That would have been a lethal combination 😉.

So Rojo made a few comments and thinks he's in the clubs plans.
He probably either injured himself walking out the interview or two footed the journo.

We're signing Sneijder after the bank holiday. Gaitan too if his agent picks up the phone. Strootmans due the following week. Then Woodward turned off Football Manager 2014.

Because we need another egotistical idiot with a tonne of baggage who's spend every summer doing should I stay or should I go videos. I don't care if he scores a hat trick every game. He's a dressing room liability which is the last thing we need right now.
