Signing to be completed tomorrow. Hannibal Mejbri from Monaco. 10 million fee.


1.) 31 Jul 2019 22:00:09
16 years old isn't he? A lot of money too.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 22:34:17
Yes 16. I know nothing on the kid but must have some potential for that fee.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 23:15:56
He’ll bring some bite to our midfield in the future.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 01:04:20
i thought for a moment mort you said hanibal lectuer.

5.) 01 Aug 2019 06:36:22
He’d bite our hands off for a good deal.

6.) 01 Aug 2019 06:55:09
I have watches Mejbri very closely over the last 2 seasons. The lad has great potential. Very mature for his age. Has 2 feet, can pass the ball. He also has a head do should be good in the air too.
Obviously at his age he will need coaching, so it is down to Ed Woodward to develop him, but he could be a future captain and play for at least another 10 years.
Very excited about this one.

7.) 01 Aug 2019 08:13:33
Betty, I’m relieved that a player we are interested in has two feet and a head. It shows that we have a plan regarding our transfer policy.

8.) 01 Aug 2019 12:27:01
Let’s hope he’s hungry for success.

1.) 31 Jul 2019 21:11:11
That came out of left-field, alright.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 21:26:22
Well if its one transfer at atime on to the next.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 23:36:41
He’s a youngster, another one for the future.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 05:43:33
Not really noucamp, the first reports of our interest came a few months ago. Mejbri and his agent/ family wanted his contract at monaco unilaterally cancelled and went to the french fa, i think we were just waiting to see if we could get him for free, since that didn't pan out, we have now negotiated a deal with monaco.



21 Jul 2019 14:09:53
Rumour that deal for Maguire is finalised. Medical on Tuesday.


1.) 21 Jul 2019 14:41:30
Hope your right Mort.

2.) 21 Jul 2019 16:32:18
Wow two medicals after his rumoured medical last Wednesday. The club really don't want another crocked centre back do they 😂.

Phil Jones to west ham and cash for Diop.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 19:04:23
Is this new developments Mort or the same story from two days ago?

2.) 19 Jun 2019 19:10:17
Would be lovely.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 20:25:54
Surely they should offer cash and diop for an England international with Premier League experience?!

4.) 19 Jun 2019 20:36:25
Plus JONES is a marketing dream machine. Those faces he pulls. pure GOLD.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 20:52:24
I would be over the moon if this is true.

But I would imagine the options would be:

Diop for 45m or Diop for 60m plus Phil Jones😂.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 01:13:01
Sorry but the deal should be Diop +60m for our man Jones.

A FA Charity Shield winner in 2011!

A Premier League winner in 2013 (I witnessed this so it is true)

A Europa Cup winner 2017.

He almost won the 2018 World Cup with England.

On 22 August 2011 against Tottenham Hostpur he played the entire match!

On 10 September 2011, Jones provided two assists for Wayne Rooney in United's 5–0 thumping of Bolton Wanderers again playing the entire match!

What more can you ask for? West Ham would be getting a Premier League legend.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 06:29:10
He can take corners too!

8.) 20 Jun 2019 09:15:42
Surely including Jones makes the deal less valuable to West Ham?

Rumours of young to dc united.


1.) 29 May 2019 23:54:00
Fingers crossed.

2.) 30 May 2019 03:43:54
Who so ever has came up with this article has made a big joke on us. Wants to make fans super happy. A good banter I guess.

3.) 30 May 2019 08:40:41
We can only hope and pray!

I still expect him to be at OT next season.

4.) 30 May 2019 09:01:48
Wishful thinking. We have never really sorted things with our RB position and unless we sign someone with experience who can just come and slot straight into the first team, don't think Young is going anywhere. Probably his last year at the club anyway and that's the least we can be happy with.

5.) 30 May 2019 10:18:57
AMEN to that!

6.) 30 May 2019 13:30:21
Been confirmed that it's false news.

7.) 30 May 2019 14:45:18
Honestly cannot understand why criticism of AY is verbalised the way it is. As fans are you really that ignorant?
AY is well over the hill, no two ways about it but I struggle to think of another player in the current squad who gives 100% of their selves week in week out. He has been asked to do a job at RB and he’s given it his best.
Some of you need to have a long hard think about how you differentiate between ‘types’ of player and the criticism you throw about.
I would rather have 11 players lacking quality who love the club and give everything rather than a bunch of egotistical, lazy, overrated, self-indulging, overpaid waste of spaces. It makes my blood boil reading some of the unfair criticism that appears on here.
For god’s sake, if you want to have a pop at a player, do so for a lake of desire rather than quality because DESIRE is the one thing we need right now over anything else.

8.) 30 May 2019 14:56:02
Well said Giggsy.

9.) 30 May 2019 16:09:59
Well KG, I understand your sentiment but I would rather have 11 a bunch of egotistical, lazy, overrated, self-indulging, players who actually earn their money by delivering on their quality (not saying our current crop does this) rather than players lacking quality who love the club and give everything. If that is the criteria then we can get a starting 11 from this page each earning at most a tenth per month of what is currently being paid weekly.
It isn't enough to be committed, (Phil jones also comes to mind) you need to have the attributes and quality to back it, our Captain does NOT! He doe not deserve to start for us and maybe even does not deserve the bench.
It is about time we call a spade a spade.

Look at the RBs for the teams that finished top ten in the league and pick the worst performing ones.
City - Walker
Lpool - TAA
Chelsea - Azpi
Spurs - Trippier and Aurier
Arsenal - Bellerin and Niles
Utd - Young
Wolves - Doherty
Everton - Coleman
Leicester - Ricardo
Westham - Zabaleta / Fredricks

And even some from the bottom ten like AWB and the young Yan Valery. I am sorry but personally from what i saw this season, young should only be kept if he has any sort of positive influence in the dressing room.

10.) 30 May 2019 16:38:50
Thanks for the reply. You have completely missed my point. The player can only do what is asked of him by the team’s manager. If 11 players are picked (regardless of our opinion on their quality) then it is up to the player to give 100% and AY does that. If we were to pick a team purely on desire and commitment, he would be one of the first on the team sheet.
At this point in time I am well past the ‘he does not deserve to start for us’ based on his current ability view, and to be honest given the nightmares we have involved else where within the squad who are making a negative difference, I’m surprised any other United fan could be any different.

11.) 30 May 2019 17:08:54
I grasp your point perfectly, that was why I gave the example of jones who gives his all when he plays. There was no real bashing of young on this thread, but we all admit he is past it and we need to better that department. Maybe AY was being picked because we don't have any option.
To elaborate on my point of preferring the players with quality, we can take Hazard as an example, he has been flirting with Real Madrid more that half his career with chelsea be it just rumours or misguided utterances, that however never stopped him from being a professional and delivering when called upon.

12.) 30 May 2019 18:31:43
Pogba, Lingard, Rashford, now Young. It seems posters are gradually working their way through the whole team.

13.) 31 May 2019 11:04:43
Well said KG.

It is not Young’s fault that he has outlasted savers new signings under a number of managers.

Perhaps the frustration should be pointed towards our recruitment and decision making rather than somebody who is doing a job they are asked to do.

14.) 01 Jun 2019 18:34:16
When players hit their thirties you start resting them and managing their fitness levels. Saf always knew that which is why he got a lot out of his older players.

Young and Valencia should have been managed more correctly in the last few years, especially since they play at such physically demanding positions. They are both burnt out now though, and good time for them to leave.

As I say its a funny season. The great Poch loses to Leicester who the worst United in history managed to beat last week. Bizarre.


1.) 21 Sep 2019 14:51:27
Comments like this are tedious. 99% of people who watch football would rather Poch in charge of their team over Ole. Context is huge. A manager who has consistently delivered with a club who have a smaller transfer and wage budget of teams they consistently finish above, whilst moving into a new stadium, improving the majority of their players. Play with a clear and concise plan. Done a good job at previous clubs. Going through a difficult patch after a champions league final loss. And you're using this a stick to beat fans who have a problem with our manager?

2.) 21 Sep 2019 14:58:58
They would have won if VAR hadn't ruined the game though, to be fair.

3.) 21 Sep 2019 14:59:33
Regardless of the result today poch is a good manager.
Did spurs have a player sent off today.

4.) 21 Sep 2019 15:05:09
oh come on mumbles poch isn't doing that well of a job they lost the most games in the top 6 than anybody last season already lost 2 this season. What wonders is he really doing with spurs. Sure they got top 4 last season and reached the champs league final which they lost. Spurs an poch ain't doing that great for me.

5.) 21 Sep 2019 15:05:17
We need to keep our own house in order - not worry about what others are up to. Spurs having a poor start to the season doesn't nullify ours. If our 'rivals' are faltering then we need to be taking advantage of that, not using it to justify our own results.

On a side note, for all those who want us to sign James Madison did you see his 6 grand back pack before the game? Horrendous!

Should fit right in at United.

6.) 21 Sep 2019 16:17:37
It’s not tedious, it’s pointing out that irrespective of how great Managers are, thIs season is bizarre. Right now I am not drawing any conclusions. It may have changed now but Norwich, who beat City last week are 2 down to Burnley.

7.) 21 Sep 2019 16:19:24
Mort by the same logic tottenham smashed crystal palace who we lost to.

8.) 21 Sep 2019 16:13:55
Mumbles what trophies has he won?

He's a mentally weak manager who produces mentally weak teams.

9.) 21 Sep 2019 16:48:11
Mort you will be telling me pep is a bad manager next.

10.) 21 Sep 2019 17:22:06
Mort, if Poch gets sacked tomorrow, he wouldn't be waiting around long before a top club gives him a call. He is an incredibly impressive manager. It may be that his time with those players is coming to an end, maybe they have reached their ceiling.

Whatever peoples views on Ole are, I don't think belittling a manager who has been very impressive over the last few years is the right way to prove that Ole is the right man for Manchester United.

11.) 21 Sep 2019 17:22:39
CSM I said exactly that last week. Palace got smashed after beating us. Its been a crazy season so far which is the point I was making and only Tony got. Also I had a dig at Poch as I think he's over rated. He's a good coach but not a great one until he wins something. And I don't think he will as he seems incapable of taking the next step.

Jred pal Peps a good coach. There's no denying it. But he needs to win the champions league again. Also I'd like to see him go somewhere and show he can do it when things aren't all on a plate for him.

12.) 21 Sep 2019 17:32:13
Mort there was no denying it before city pal .
Poch is a good manager as well.

13.) 21 Sep 2019 18:07:41
He still needs to win something though. I can't see Poch at the very top clubs until he wins something. He may to move to a club on the next rung down. But the questions of his teams mental fragility remains. Is it the players or him.

Jred he's a good coach. He improves players. But he's always had it easy going to the best team, with the best squad with the biggest cheque book. He failed at Bayern in not winning the champions league and so far City haven't impressed in that competition. I'm just saying I'd like to see him go to a club where he hasn't got everything on the plate at the start.

14.) 21 Sep 2019 20:27:06
It woukd be interesting to see how Pep did at a lower team but there is one thing which is undeniable. If you have the chance to play with the most gifted technical players who have the right motivation ie hunger to win then your chances of winning trophies will inevitably be greater than with players less technically gifted no matter how hungry their desire for success is. If Pep coached such players and they didn't win trophies he would still be a great coach.

15.) 21 Sep 2019 23:53:03
So if you're in a position where you're the most desirable Candidate and city offer you the highest wages and largest transfer budget and say arsenal offer you less for both, you would choose the arsenal offer?

16.) 22 Sep 2019 02:16:11
Hello everyone, First post here! Here are my 2 cents on Poch and Ole. Yes Poch is a good manager and might have done good at United, but I think we should get behind Ole at the moment and give him more time. We made a mistake handing him the job before the season ended, but now that he's the coach, he needs our support. He's trying something new and there would certainly be some downs in the beginning and sacking him would only create more instability and unrest within the club. I strongly believe he can put up a title-challenging team at least by the end of the 2021 transfer window, if given the financial freedom he needs. Thanks for reading.

17.) 22 Sep 2019 09:29:36
Agree watery eyes as long as the team are showing improvement.

3.) 10 Aug 2019 00:45:30
No Gomes or Chong either. Hopefully both will be involved on Sunday.

03 Aug 2019 20:00:25
Its pre-season and Matic already looks knackered. He's done and next summer needs to be moved on. He shouldn't be starting many games this season.

Also what does Mata offer on the pitch. I still think it was a mistake to renew him.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 20:18:54
Matic has surely fallen down the pecking order in terms of starters. Would have pogba (obviously), mctominay, fred and maybe even pereira ahead of him.

Everytime i see our midfield without pogba we just lack so much creativity and control. Everyone admonishes him for his arrogance but he is one of the few in our team who doesn't hide and always wants the ball and can pick all sorts of passes.

With 5 days left in the window i think the appropriate tactic would be to handcuff him to fred the red.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 21:28:43
Mort, you’ve been taken to the dark side by Scott and Jaime. Come on mate, use the force, come back to us, we need you.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 21:47:25
Tony, its all too much. The dark side is too tempting.

The kids played well though. McTom has to be first choice. And we need to get Gomes minutes this season.

But I do think we're too light in midfield. We need more bodies in there. Bruno plus one.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 23:03:21
Pogba and McTom with Bruno in front would be great. Agreed Gomes should be getting longer. If he gets some solid minutes can see him making a great contribution. he needs game time though as do Chong and greenwood. Will be interesting to see what happens with the 3 of them.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 23:47:35
Having watched us struggle against a not great AC Milan it does give me cause for concern with the season about to start. I still feel we lack a real dominant leader in centre midfield. A Keane type of figure would make such a difference. Also Maguire should add much more to. Our still porous defence.

6.) 04 Aug 2019 01:34:06
Did we struggle?

We played without our best defender and best midfielder. I agree Matic hasn’t been good enough in pre season but it sometimes takes older players a little longer to get match fit. Maybe he won’t come good and Ole will have to take action but I wouldn’t write him off just yet, he was brilliant in Ole’s first 10 games.

7.) 04 Aug 2019 04:26:57
It's a week before the EPL kicks off. don't get a knock don't get injured. Chill out reading to much in to a game.

8.) 04 Aug 2019 07:28:45
There were some goods points, Rashford looks sharp, Martial actually did some running off the ball, James should start next week.
McTominey gave the ball away a few times, but was okay, AWB is a work in progress, nice to see him getting forward, Lindelof was okay, saved by Rojo a few times.
Overall I still think we look like a 5th-6th placed team, depending on signings this week that could change.

Lindelof was our best player last season. And he's halfway through his contract so yes he's due for contract talks and an extension. He's made a couple of mistakes this season but is miles ahead of the three stooges.

Lingard only signed a new deal something like 18 months ago so shouldn't be being offered another one at this moment in time.

Keane would have that dressing room against him in 5 minutes flat. Then they'd refuse to pay and he'd be sacked by the end of the first week.

Manager roulette is not the answer.

Nor do I think its a lack of effort from most of the players rather a lack of quality.

For the sack him now brigade I have 2 questions. Who do you replace him with and what makes you think that whoever would do a better job with the same players.

If yoy want blood then maybe start looking for it in the right place and start a Woodward out movement.
