Ed002, sorry to bother, just wondered if there was any update with regards to Sanchez. With Wengers saying it could be done in 24/ 48 hours is there any progress ether way? Where do you see his most likely destination? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "most likely" questions sensibly. Wenger ill likely be right that it will be completed soon - perhaps in the next couple of days but there is no agreement just yet.}

Twitchy bum time, we'll just have to wait and see.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 16:09:48
No probs ed, cheers.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 16:15:06
Notice that it says will be completed but not where he will complete to. I still struggle to believe he will be a Utd player with it seeming so nailed on for city for so long.



08 Aug 2017 20:46:54
Will that be the end of the Bale rumours?


1.) 08 Aug 2017 22:31:19
Does that actually change anything if they only wanted to sell him if they get Mbappe?
Would he have been playing if Ronaldo was fit?

2.) 09 Aug 2017 05:55:54

3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:00:11
Would Isco not be available if Mbappe comes in AND Bale stays?

4.) 09 Aug 2017 07:25:48
Allen. Did u watch bale last night? You don't think he would be a big upgrade on anyone in our team then? He would be our best player and give us a whole new dimension.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 09:04:35
But if he doesn't want to come then its pointless chasing after him.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 10:07:53
Mort, exactly, hence the OP.

7.) 09 Aug 2017 10:30:01
dont clubs usually ask the agent if his player would be willing to join and I'd imagine if we got told he (bale) has no desire to join us then we just wouldn't pursue him so if we are interested like the eds have said we are then we must have been encouraged to carry on pursuing.

I've no idea if this makes any sense my heads a shed from just writing it 😀.

8.) 09 Aug 2017 11:03:37
I think i know what you mean dave :-)

9.) 09 Aug 2017 11:10:57
And bales agent has always said that his client is going nowhere. Wd bale improve our team. probably. but not at a cost of 90m.
Despite being 32 cr7 is valued 40m more than when we sold him in his prime. Bale despite being only 28 is valued the same as he was 4 years ago, this in an era when transfer fees are rocketing. Why has bales value not risen? 3 reasons imo. injury record, the loss of that extreme pace that made him so devastating previously and the fact that RM would happily cash in on him if he could be persuaded to leave so that they could buy mbappe.
Good player yes but not worth 90m or so with his injury record.
Would prefer isco all day long as I suspect RM will when la liga kicks off.

10.) 09 Aug 2017 11:56:55
I watched the game and he did very little can see why he might be available. He is no where as influential in that Madrid team as the other guys (modric, isco, kroos, Ronaldo, benzema) and for me influences the game very little. For 90 million I would rather spend it on 2 other players.

He does no defending and good in a counter attack sense where he has a lot of room to run into. Put Martial or Rashford into that real team and they would thrive as well if given the chance to run one on one at defenders.

I would not be surprised if Real come calling in a year or two for our guys.

11.) 09 Aug 2017 13:29:17
Watching us last night I wish we had signed Bernardo silva He can keep the ball, we are miles away, Lukaku did nothing to impress me or change my mind about him, didn't look mobile, or have a great touch.

12.) 09 Aug 2017 15:46:53
Still think we need a CM who can control the game Herrera for me isn't good enough he's a jack of all trades master of none. With matic at DM I would prefer a more technical player than Herrera I like him but to get to the next level we need a modric or silva type player who can unlock deep defences and keep Possesion in tight areas.

13.) 10 Aug 2017 09:26:00
Lukaku is all brain, he's reading of the game is just on another level :D.



14 Jul 2017 17:55:44
Matic missing Chelsea tour. Think it's imminent then.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:22:26
Juventus are supposedly interested too.



09 Jul 2017 13:52:20
All the best Wayne Rooney. We had 8-9 really good years from him. Hope he is successful back at Everton.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 13:58:13
well said stand-United.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 18:24:23
After Ronaldo left he practically carried us.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 19:42:06
lets just take a moment to remember that overhead kick against City.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 20:28:36
and the newcastle volley.



01 Jul 2017 10:30:18
I think we'll see a few signings in the coming week. We leave for pre season tour in roughly a week, id imagine Jose will want a few new faces involved.


1.) 01 Jul 2017 11:28:21
Think Matic could be agreed early next week when Chelsea sign Bakayoko, Hopefully Morata too.

Player swaps are very rare in football these days, who's to say Miki has any interest at all in Arsenal, a side struggling and who won't make CL football, who probs won't pay the silly wages we do and a managerial change fairly imminent imo.

I see I very unlikely he will want to go and can see the whole deal collapsing tbh. I'd love to be proven wrong but the longer it goes on the less likely it comes off I think.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:25:39
I agree stand the longer it goes on the less optimistic I am about this deal. Very frustrating but you cannot force miki to move somewhere he does not want to go. I hope it can be resolved as losing Sanchez to one of our rivals will have huge repercussions I feel. If he didn’t want to join he would have said no so I do believe he wants to play for us. We just need to get this tied up and come to some arrangement which benefits all parties.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 14:03:45
If he doesn't move then we will offload him elsewhere, he now knows the club don't want him and then we will up the offer to Arsenal who need to sell and will therefore accept. Only us and City interested, City have pulled out, let's not worry just yet.



15 Jan 2018 22:11:31
Chelsea in for Alexis now. Would be less upheaval I guess moving etc? I really hope we can get this over the line. It's only been a few days but I'm already bored of it all! Just pick one quickly Alexis and make sure it's us!




13 Jan 2018 03:08:30
Ed002 has posted a response on the Arsenal site, where he states he believes Sanchez is only interested in joining city, with them being able to challenge for league and CL honours in the next 3/ 4 years. As Ed002 is 99.9% of the time bang on I think we can dismiss this one unfortunately.

Oh he also mentions the ludicrous salary Zlatan is on is a slight hinderence. Why the hell was he given another contract. He's utterly useless.


1.) 13 Jan 2018 08:00:21
“He’s utterly useless” were you saying this last season when he was the only one banging in goals?

For the record Maze did not want ZI to sign a new deal due to the fact he could be stagnating the development of MR and AM but to label him as “useless” is nonsensical and stupid. Twaddle.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 09:34:35
I would say he was poor last season, should have had double the goals he scored. He missed some sitters.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 10:13:17
He wasn't poor though. Revisionism at it's best.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 10:42:48
I don't really get this whole he more chance of winning stuff with city thing as far as I can see we've won more than city in recent seasons also yes city look very good this season but I don't really get how that translates as dominance in the near future .

Still they have won nothing yet.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 10:45:19
regardless of how he was last year, United were foolish to offer him a contract so early this season. he's fooled them to believe his powers of recovery he looked no where near fit. yet marcos rojo got no headlines from recovering from the same injury.

6.) 13 Jan 2018 11:14:48
To give a 36 year old with a torn acl the contract we give ibra seems a strange decision .
Mind you signing him in the first place was a short sighted.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 12:10:32
Maze if you weren’t hiding under your rock most of last year you would have seen I said all last season he was a burden on the team. He may of scored a few goals, but he was detrimental the the way we played and we were better when he wasn’t playing. To then give him another 300k a week contract after an acl at the age of 36 is laughable.

8.) 13 Jan 2018 12:12:41
Dean, but they have. They’ve won the League twice, an FA Cup and a League Cup, maybe not under Pep but they are competing and winning things.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 12:29:14
I was talking about this season Tony I'm pretty fed up with all the talk of fabulous man city.

It's like overnight we've become some piddly little club that can't attract the players we want because it's such an awful proposition to play for united.

I will probably get hammered for this by the usual crowd but imo we are the biggest club in the world and for me the choice of playing for a tin pot club with a half empty stadium and 5 minutes of history vs playing for historically the biggest club certainly in this country there is no choice.

{Ed002's Note - They want success and don't care for a history lesson.}

10.) 13 Jan 2018 13:03:46
Signing him in the first place wasn't an issued me. Did very well IMO, scored a lot of goals, won trophies but when he tore his ACL, to renew his contract was extremely baffling.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 13:07:02
And Manchester United all of a sudden have no chance of success ed?


{Ed002's Note - That is a stupid comment and not what I said.}

12.) 13 Jan 2018 13:23:54
Stand that is fine if you claim ‘oh but Maze I said this months ago blah blah blah yawn’ but why does that render a great champion of the game “utterly useless”?

The simple answer is it does not. The new deal was a poor decision but your remarks are complete twaddle.

13.) 13 Jan 2018 13:31:30
Don't think he said that, it was more of Sanchez wanting to win trophies and city being better placed to offer those, but if we get a rb, lb, SMS and a replacement for ibra, I don't see why we can't do the same.



01 Jan 2018 12:18:42
Hi, happy new year and all that. Though being a regular poster over the last few years, I have been reluctant to post for a while now, mainly for two reasons. The first being how fed up I am watching this United side play, and the second not wanting to bash Jose.

At the end of last season I thought we had made decent progress and had the right man in the job. Having seen the first half of this season I've pretty much lost faith. This is not the same José Mourinho we saw at Porto, Chelsea and Inter, make no mistake about it. I feel that football has moved on in the last 5 years or so, and with that Jose has failed to do so. If you look at the trophies he has won over his managerial career, first first half of his career has been much more successful than the second.

When at Chelsea his players would literally run through brick walls for him. You just don't see that now. He would always deflect blame from his players and protect them, now it's anyone but himself, be it the ref, invidual players, whoever.

When you watch City under Pep, or even Liverpool or Spurs, they press high up the pitch, and when the lose the ball, especially city, they hunt for it in packs. If you watch they very often win the ball back within 4-5 seconds, still in the oppositions half. Teams can't get out their own half, thus limiting danger to their own goal. We on the other hand drop deeper and deeper, sit off and allow the opposition onto us, we play in our own 18 yard box. We have players in Rashford, martial, Lingard who are capable of this. I saw a star a few weeks back we have ran the last distance as a team in the whole league. Just pathetic really.

Martial has been our best attacker this season but finds himself on the bench more often than not. How did Miki get a start over him against Soton? Even when Lukaku came off Jose opted for Rashford. Martial is the better player between himself and Rashford. The team selection over this Christmas period has baffled me at times.

If we look at the squad, we have some good players. We have a couple of top players, mainly De Gea and Pogba. Then the likes of Martial, Matic and Baily. All very good players. But there's also a hell of a lot of bang average players still in this squad, £600m later since Fergie left. Blind, Rojo, Smalling, Young, Darmian, Fellaini, Zlatan, these players just aren't up to standard. I'm not convinced there would be many mid table teams looking to buy these players if they're available. We haven't had proper decent fullbacks since Evra and Neville. We haven't had decent wingers for years. City have Sterling and Sane, Liverpool Mane and Salah, we have to push Mata, a creative genius but with zero pace out wide. When we attack and make the final third it's just totally clueless. Lukaku at £75m is obsurd. I'd rather have chucked a big pay packet at Diego Costa, works his socks off for 90 mins and scores goals. Alexis another.

In terms of player improvement, just look at Stirling, De Bruyne, even Stones and Otamendi, under Pep. All have improved massively. Has Martial, Rashford, Shaw or anyone else for that matter improved? Nope is the answer.

I'm fed up watching pragmatic, defensive, football, I'd rather see us go hell for leather even if we got beat more often. At the start of the year in AJH prediction comp, I had City to win the league and Liverpool second, and a lot slammed me for it. I'm still very confident of that.

Jose is layin the foundations already, blaming his players, the refs, the money spent etc, he's not settled in two years here, the writings on the wall. I personally hate changing manager, but I think Jose is the third mistake in a row. If we don't get it right sooner rather than later we won't win a league for 20 years. We're turning into Liverpool and it makes me sick.

What am I expecting today? A bore fest, maybe scrape a draw. Can't wait.


1.) 01 Jan 2018 12:48:15
Good post stand. I'm going with the 1-1 draw, something has to change at United and fast.

2.) 01 Jan 2018 13:00:57
an excellent summary Stand-united. i'm hoping JM can show us the JM we all hoped for when he arrived, he has only shown glimpses of the charismatic guy and enthusiastic clever coach he can be. His team is an image of him at the moment . dour and uninspiring.

3.) 01 Jan 2018 15:20:45
A lot I agree with in stands post.

4.) 01 Jan 2018 17:01:11
Figuratively run through brick walls for him. Sorry.



29 Sep 2017 14:18:15
Gutted to hear about Pogba, although I feared it with how quiet it's been. Massive loss. Has started the season brilliantly. We're not the same team without him and he will be a huge loss this season.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 15:44:51
Yeah that’s a massively blow, talking about in the same category as Rojo and Ibra take that as December ish return? Herrera never let us down last season so his chance to shine again.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 15:44:52
Looks like he is out until mid November.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 15:52:21
Agree stand his quality against the big teams will be missed.

4.) 29 Sep 2017 16:10:24
Beat you by 1 second jred 😂.

5.) 29 Sep 2017 20:33:40
I think Herrera, Fellaini and Carrick are not bad options to have. They all always give 100%. Mctominay will also get a few more games till November. It's good for the lad. This is cliche and all but when Pogba, Ibra and Rojo return they will be like new signings.

6.) 30 Sep 2017 05:23:15
Quite angry with how Pereira decided to jump clubs.
He would have gotten a good amount of game until Pogba returned.

7.) 30 Sep 2017 10:15:19
Angry with Pereira? Bit odd. There were no guarantees that he would get the sufficient game time for us this season. Where as he will feature heavily for Valencia and gain much needed experience. Come back to us a much more seasoned pro IMO. The right move.

8.) 30 Sep 2017 18:51:10
Pereira made a great choice going to valencia. He will get a load of game time. Probs had more minutes for them now then he would have in the whole season for us. I genuinely believe he will have more chance to be a starter for us next season by going and playing a decent amount of seniorfootball at a decent side.

Sanchez was not aware of our interest at the time city came in, I don’t think he has any long standing affection for them really does he. Not unless Danny Allsopp and Shaun Goater we’re his boyhood idols anyway.

Evans 😂😂😂
Sign Evans for starters is laughable
Sign Evans for £35m and don’t play him is even worse.

Oh, where’s martial? The lads got the lot.

In a way yeh. I think he’s a very good player, playing for the wrong manager in the wrong system. I could see him doing well at Arsenal if he is involved in any potential Sanchez deal.
