Wonder if Jose might be on his way back to Madrid with Zidane gone. If so who would come in here and I guess it would really play havoc with our transfer plans.

Thr papers (who have absolutely no facts) are saying wenger as favourite for RM

Tgey have also linked every manager in the top 10 of football so.

Tge Wenger thing i don't understand at all tho.

3.) 01 Jun 2018 11:08:52
If . Big if. if jose was too leave . I'd go for Simone and let him bring greisman with him.

4.) 01 Jun 2018 11:51:33
No interest in Simeone from my side.
Would be even more “results over style” then Mourinho.
Would put us in a difficult spot with the season being over and transfer plans in full swing from all clubs.
Only positive would be it being a World Cup year, which is a big stumbling block in transfer dealings for the involved players anyway.

5.) 01 Jun 2018 23:31:04
Fat Sam is available 🤢 don’t think you would notice any difference if they swapped Jose for pulis.



03 Jul 2017 11:35:00
On talk sport, Jim White is saying Rooney is off to Everton. I think he would do well there especially as he will be really motivated for his boyhood club. I can see Everton being a real force this season. Would you guys be happy if we got Ross Barclay as part of the deal.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 11:54:46
Everton a real force hahaha.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:57:10
Not in anyway. Ross Barkley is bang average, always has been. Why would we want him? Where would he play?

3.) 03 Jul 2017 12:07:36
I don't want anything coming back the other way in this one. Barkley is only rated as he is English - his talent will be wasted. He should be up there with Alli in performance levels.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 12:20:51
Don't know how true but I was told Rooney was lined up for a coaching role at Everton next summer.

5.) 03 Jul 2017 12:32:07
I'd let rooney leave for free, we had the best Rooney years a while back so let him go and end his PL career with Everton. Oh and no I wouldn't want Barkley either.

6.) 03 Jul 2017 12:48:44
I thought Everton were making decent steps last season. Signings so far been ok. I wouldn't write them off.

7.) 03 Jul 2017 12:52:56
If Lukaku was part of the deal then how would you feel?

8.) 03 Jul 2017 13:37:10
Probably the new driver Jred.

9.) 03 Jul 2017 13:47:30
Everton have a good manager and made some astute signings. They will push for a top 4 spot this season i suspect but i'd imagine they will come up short.
As for rooney going back there. It would be nice for him to play out his career for the team and club he loves. He has had a great career at united ultimately 3 years too long probably but he will leave with the thanks of all supporters ringing in his ears i'd say. i'm sure when he conned back to OT he will get a great reception from the fans who will look back and ignore the last few years and remember the good times.

10.) 03 Jul 2017 13:50:39
conned? Who has he conned ken? ;)

11.) 03 Jul 2017 14:46:23
Would thank Rooney for his service and let him go for free to everton. Big wages off the books, but wouldn't want Barkley everton fans don't want him .

12.) 03 Jul 2017 14:58:15
I'd definitely let him go for free, it's the sensible business decision. Nobody is going to pay for him and I don't even know what value he has as a footballer, it's commercially where a buying lcub would see the benefits. Big wage bill off the books too.

He should and will go down as a legend.

The only reason I can't see him going to Everton (other than wages) is because I really don't see how he will get in their team.

13.) 03 Jul 2017 15:27:52
I would straight swap rooney and or fellaini for barkley. Putting aside how good you think barkley is it would make finacial sense. In this market you could sell barkley on for at least 30m next year.

I agree with most that barkley has been overrated in the past but he isn't average. He contributed to 13 league goals last season that's more than most of our squad members managed.

14.) 03 Jul 2017 17:06:08
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Got a good old fashioned friend of a friend rumour for you.
My brother in law, his girlfriend's dad is an Everton fan and he has said today the Lu Lu Lukaku is heading to United. Can't say I believe it but as I've said before I'd be happy if that came off.

15.) 03 Jul 2017 19:07:56
I can see lukaku coming tbh. I personally think he would be a brilliant signing for us. Good old fashioned striker who has consistently scored goals in teams that aren't challenging for the league. i'm not saying everton are bad side but if he can get the goals there surely with a bit of a step up he's going to score more.

16.) 04 Jul 2017 11:39:22
I like Barkley, not sure he is good enough for CL level. Had the potential, but not kicked on, so I'd give him a swerve.

In terms of Rooney - my prediction is he will start off well for 3-4 games, then by Xmas he will phased out of the team when they realise he is not mobile/ capable enough for the way they play. If we can get away with not paying any of his wages then it's a phenomenal way to get out of jail. I'd let him go for free of course, in fact I'd let him go if they offered to send us Gibson, Phil Neville and Tim Howard as part of the deal, lol.

Well done Pogba.




15 Jul 2018 16:31:24
That's probably another £20m on Perisic transfer fee.


1.) 15 Jul 2018 17:33:35
I still say he would've been a good signing last summer.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 17:40:02
Agree mort. Very good player and would have been a useful addition. Don’t need him now though and need to focus on rw.



09 Jul 2018 12:18:45
So a while back I posted about the possibility of Maguire being a player Utd might look at and the general consensus was he was not good enough. (I was unsure) ., Having seen him more I firmly believe he would be a very good addition to our team and would enable us to play 3 5 2 and allow our attackers to flourish. He seems a level headed person and is consistent. He can defend and under Mourinho would get better. He also can play out with the ball. Lastly he is a big threat at set pieces which increasingly matter in today's game.


1.) 09 Jul 2018 12:35:25
I was also in the unsure camp. I have been impressed with him so far but have to temper the level of the opponents with this. If we were in the market for a centre back of his age I would seriously consider him. But with Bailly and Lindelof (the latter has also impressed at the world cup) I think Jose is looking for a more experienced option.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 13:03:31
He's a good lad and a decent defender. He does have a tendency to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is definitely one of England's better defenders at the moment but he isn't anywhere near the level of Ferdinand, Terry, Campbell, Adams ect.

In short he is good but not world class. Alfie Mawson for me is a better all round defender, Maguire is just better in the air.

When I look at Tuanzebe I see a player who could be world class. He has excellent understanding and reading of the game, he has pace and a solid build, he has great technique and he is always talking and communicating with those around him.

I would rather play him than spend money on any other defender, but if we must sign a centre back to block his already over crowded path to the first team then they really have to be from the top drawer. Alderweireld or no one for me.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 14:09:37
I agree with Shappy. I like watching Maguire, my type of player, but up against a quality team he would often be a liability, day dreams a bit - has that British feel to the way he plays that none many of our lads have.

Happily swap him for Smalling and a bit of dosh, but what he brings in aerial threat and ability to bring out the ball, you lose with bad awareness. 90% of the time he would be only an asset, but that key 10% is what we need to make up on City across several positions - plus price will have doubled on account of world cup euphoria.

4.) 09 Jul 2018 14:56:58
Agree Shappy. i'd be more than happy to clear the path for Tuanzebe. Rojo and either Jones or Smalling should be departing. I think this season it won't happen and he'll go to a mid/ lower table side for this season. But in 12 months hopefully the way is a lot clearer for him to join the first team squad.

5.) 10 Jul 2018 00:35:14
I was in the no camp, but having seen him for England and his dominance at set pieces, I'll be delighted if we got rid of jones and rojo and bought McGuire and promoted Tunazebe.

6.) 10 Jul 2018 06:45:47
He’s great with the ball coming forward but I’m not sure he’s a particularly good defender. He loses possession in dangerous places and is often caught out of position.



03 Jul 2018 23:53:33
Would like fellow posters opinions about England please. I am delighted the team are going thought tonight but I have to say that I thought even apart from their thuggery for the most part Colombia were a poor team. Maybe it was the nerves or maybe they had too long to wait but to me it seemed a lot of the players seemed very tired and lacked energy tonight. Jesse was a perfect example of this second half as was Kane. Against a better team I think we may well have lost in extra time.
Secondly apart from set pieces we really didn't create much. Maybe Ali is still not fit but he didn't really get into the game. Sterling did try hard but he too is not on song. The problem is who do we have as potential replacements who can create something out of nothing? Also in the second half of normal time and nearly all of extra time there was to my mind far too big a gap between defence and the attack and we didn't keep the ball long enough. That's sad to win the way they did it was exciting and should give the players a lot of confidence.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 00:10:10
It's coming home ⚽⚽😆😆.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 00:29:20
To be honest hendon England haven't created as much as our scores suggest but it's not England's fault teams seem so scared of England's set plays, I've no idea why opponent's are turning England's set plays into scenes from WWE wrestling but they just keep doing it, it's beyond stupidity and we have had 3 pens but really should have had more in the tournament . They appear to be given warning only seconds before doing it by the refs . It's not England's fault if defenders are a bit thick .

3.) 04 Jul 2018 00:33:46
Disappointed in Colombia. I thought they'd make more of a game of it. England pretty much controlled the game, apart from one lapse at a set-piece. After England scored, I thought it was a very mature performance. If that had been Germany or Italy seeing the game out, we'd all have been raving about how they saw the game out with minimum fuss.

4.) 04 Jul 2018 00:38:17
Loving the sense of togetherness this squad has, it can take you along way. I don’t think Columbia are up to much and lookily they were without there main man tonight, fortunately Sweden are worse so we should make Semis then who knows what might happen 🤞. Deli Ali is a passenger right now and that can’t happen, the position Sterling is being asked to play does not get the best from him either so I wouldn’t mind seeing either of them replaced for the next game. Comon boys Bring It Home 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿.

5.) 04 Jul 2018 00:45:20
I agree Noucamp that it was a mature performance but are you not concerned at the lack of clear cut chances we have created. I know I am.

6.) 04 Jul 2018 01:15:04
I’m just really enjoying the atmosphere and vibe of this england team. Gareth Southgate is a really likeable guy and he has done a fantastic job in creating a great team spirit within the camp. Thought it was a mature performance today and unlucky that Colombia equalised. I just want to enjoy it and start believing that we can win it. Don’t care how we do it and don’t care if we are all getting carried away!

7.) 04 Jul 2018 06:24:35
We’re in the quarter finals with a very young team. You can only beat who is put in front of you and the draw has fallen kindly for us. Let’s remember Iceland and realise how far this squad has come. Tougher games to come but it’s great to see such a team spirit and long may it continue.

8.) 04 Jul 2018 07:03:38
We are in the QF. Job done by Southgate and with this team he’s done a great job. Anything else is a bonus now so enjoy the ride. It’s been a tremendous World Cup.

9.) 04 Jul 2018 08:26:30
Totally agree with the general sentiment to enjoy the success and togetherness but we really do have the most wonderful chance to get to at least a semi final if a work cup. Team spirit carries you so far but I wish we really had more creativity. Going home on the tube last night after the match the happy faces of people contrasted starkly with the usual dour looks I see. Instead of people being silent they were chatting away. That's the power of football. I want this to continue throughout the country. I also don't want to think in years to come that we missed a golden chance to win the world cup because we used defeat to Iceland as our yardstick to define our future success. I want the team to really go for it. No fear.



17 Jun 2018 23:18:37
I know it's only a few minutes on TV but seeing Savic play for Serbia today I have to say he did look a very good player. Wonder if Matic will be instructed by Jose to persuade him to come to Old Trafford.


{Ed002's Note - It is about money not desire.}

1.) 18 Jun 2018 08:36:32
Honestly. I don't see the hype. What did you see yesterday that persuaded you he's worth £90m? He's big and cumbersome, we have Matic and Mctominay who do this job. I would rather see us targetting Isco and Veratti.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 09:37:27
People are bored of pogba want a new shiny thing in the shape of savic.

If we sign him, in two years time fans will be tired of savic and want to sign pogba back.

We have a very good team, not many changes need to be made.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 09:40:34
Hes double the player matic is at the moment . But i think him and pogba are two big personalities and there is only room for one superstar in midfield.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 12:48:15
Singh, you were obviously not watching the match closely and possibly only were watching Savic in action. He lost the ball on countless times. His range of passing is nowhere near as good as Pogba's. Matic was superb yesterday.

It would be terrible if a repressive regime like the Saudis took control. Sad fact is nobody has batted an eyelid with the Quataris taking over/ investing in big clubs eg Barcelona and City. When it is an open secret that such states have serious connections to terrorists isn't it shameful that Fifa don't ban them. (oh forgot. that is the Fifa mired in controversy about awarding Qatar a world cup) . Let's hope the Glazers are more moral. If not us fans should kick up an almighty fuss.

Not sure I want a 29 going on 30 Yr old centre back as our main man in defence. I want someone who is 25 or 26 and just about to come into their prime and give us 4 or 5 years good service. Aldeweirauld is a good player no doubt but I don't think he is particularly fast and his pace will only diminish as he gets older.

He is a good player but he is too old. We need to build like City and like Utd of old younger players please.

Ed 002. Any agent worth his salt is going to do the best for his client after a world cup. You seem to know how things work better than most. In general does it appear to you that Utd are not seen as attractive a destination as City for players. Also do you have any info about any of the youngsters going on tour having a realistic chance of playing for the first team this season or is purely that so many of the first team need a rest after the world cup. Thank you for all your effort in replying .


{Ed002's Note - (a) It is nothing to do with the World Cup. (b) I am not sure of your point about Manchester City. (c) One or two youngsters may get a cameo - it is business as usual.}

I think Henderson played well but he will never be a great player. I will reserve judgement about Stones as he is young but at this level it's small margins and he switched off at critical times as did Walker. that's why Pep did not trust him last year. I actually think Trippier has been the best right defender/ wingback of the whole tournament. Kane is clearly World Class but he was not his sharpest and it may be that once again not having a mid season break hindered him. Also imagine having Erickson in our team or a De Bruyne to give him the service he needs. He fed off scraps most of the time.

Firstly let's applaud the fact that England did so well and that the players and manager gave their all. Now taking a long hard dispassionate look at the team I think the biggest thing we miss is a top class midfield. We had no one with the ability and knowledge how to dictate the pace of the game and we also lack a creative midfielder too. Modric and Perisic were excellent from half time onwards. Kane had no service and Dele Ali really has not done himself justice in this competition. Henderson is a real tryer but honestly can anyone say he is world class? At the back Trippier had a fabulous World Cup as did Maguire and Pickford. Walker played ok but I do think Stones showed why he is not first choice even at City by his switching off at key moments.
