Reports juve have agreed a deal for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic .


1.) 15 Jun 2018 00:01:07
Disappointment. Would have been one of the best midfielders we could have Signed. Thought after Carrick we would go all out for savic.

2.) 15 Jun 2018 11:24:15
Agreed Leahy think he will be special. Let’s hope they are just rumours. Would prefer him to someone like Verratti.

4.) 15 Jun 2018 14:00:13
Shame to not sign him but I think that means Jose's intent is to play Matic, Fred and Pogba. Most likely Pogba having roam to push forward and create.

5.) 15 Jun 2018 17:35:07
How have Juventus stumped up that amount of money for him.

6.) 15 Jun 2018 19:58:37
I wonder if it's for the same figures we were allegedly quoted.

7.) 21 Jun 2018 11:43:50
Anyone watch Uraguay the other day? Rodrigo Bentancur was pulling all the strings! Would be an awesome signing if Juve were willing to do business again?



24 May 2018 14:16:18
Juventus ceo has said he expects Sandro to extend his contract, meeting planned for next week.


1.) 24 May 2018 14:30:51
I think Sandro will decide, if agrees to extend, stays, if asks to leave he will.

He also saying Mandzukic hasn't asked to leave, if he does would be allowed.

2.) 24 May 2018 19:30:57
Ed02 did mention that Sandro was on-off-on with Juventus so it may or may not happen. Guess we will have to wait and see what happens with this one.

3.) 25 May 2018 14:44:18
Asamoah juve left back has left so maybe it will be Sandro and darmian for juve next year?

4.) 25 May 2018 15:59:08
jred juventus want sandro to extend contract there is no indication he wants to do the same, iirc he wanted to leave last summer wasn't allowed to and he hasn't exactly been great last season, also juve ceo kept telling everybody pogba was not going to leave until he left, won't read much into what he says.



19 May 2018 14:47:12
Looks like lukaku is out.


1.) 19 May 2018 15:20:50
Huge blow👎🏻👎🏻.

2.) 19 May 2018 15:23:25
Out? On the bench per rumours.



11 Apr 2018 18:12:20
Ed any truth United are looking at mawson.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but would think he would be well down the list of CBs the club is known to be looking at, but he has an advantage of being English. There is interest from elsewhere in the PL.}

1.) 11 Apr 2018 20:46:47
Along with our other English centre backs jones and smalling?
Im never sure with some cb's sometimes they can look good because they are so busy at the likes of swansea and because he is their best defender. Over the past couple of seasons he has stood out for them so i can see why any epl side wiuld be looking at him but could he make such a big leap. Many have before him. To be honest i think its the sort of transfer that every fan likes to see succeed.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 21:52:37
Mawson is a far better player than Maguire. Although neither are good enough for us.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 22:10:52
I don't rate maguire at all shappy. It would be a huge step up for mawson but i think he is the Better of those two.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 17:34:44
Agree shappy and ken maguire’s positioning is atrocious and I’m not sure why he gets so many plaudits. Perhaps because he carries the ball out of defence but that’s where the problems lie for me. He often loses it.

Not a fan of Mawson if I’m honest. He’s decent but not good enough for us. I find it misleading buying cbs from teams that sit back as it’s easy to camp 11 men behind the ball and be structured and disciplined. The test is when you move to one of the big boys and you have to play 10 yards further forward without 2 defensive midfielders protecting you. That’s why players like Lovren have struggled. Also, we have the likes of tuanzebe coming through who has the potential to be a very good player so wouldn’t be going anywhere near the likes of Mawson or Maguire.

If we do need a cb we need a top quality one whose better than we have got to partner bailly. It would have to be of the ilk of Umtiti, Alderweireld or varane. But tbh I would like to see lindelof to have a run in the team as I think he has the attributes to be a good cb. Otherwise my choice to partner bailly would be Rojo but he is not very good at playing out of the back. Cb is the least of our worries for me.

5.) 14 Apr 2018 14:14:16
It may just be me but I quite like Maguire . The way he breaks from the back and breaks play up. "Like a young Steve Bruce"😆😆.

{Ed001's Note - without the defensive ability or reading of the game of Bruce. In fact the only similarity between the two I can think of is that they both have a face only a mother can love....}

6.) 15 Apr 2018 10:19:44
If Alderweireld is available he’d be the signing for me! Top quality.

Good mate if my incidentally is Spurs fan and they have all well and truly turned on Danny Rose down there.



23 Mar 2018 08:20:05
Ed is there any truth in the rumour that Sanchez isn't happy with life at United and some at the club aren't happy with his attitude.


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. He is unhappy with his form.}

1.) 23 Mar 2018 12:47:04
Some people are getting desperate aren't they. That's not aimed at Jred but whoever started that rumour.

2.) 23 Mar 2018 13:10:21
Now media is trying to just find the smallest of things and making it sensational. If we believe them half of the squad is unhappy with the coach and each other. Just read yesterday that Mourinho was unhappy with Pogba because he congratulated Mou mid interview after the Liverpool victory.

3.) 23 Mar 2018 13:44:08
the most ludicrous one I've seen is sanchez has no friends and sits by himself at meal times. Just media stirring the pot and spouting rubbish. I believe sanchez is fine just unhappy with his performances and rightly so. He is immensely talented and sets high standards for himself. I would rather he was like this than lacking drive.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:41:40
Park, is it ludicrous? Apparently / allegedly he was loner at Arsenal too. He may be a great player but I’m not sure how social he is.

{Ed001's Note - he has never been particularly sociable which caused him problems as Barca with Messi. Some people just do not want to go out on nights out with the lads, they are homebodies.}

"We have 23 high-level athletes, Fred is not in a position to play, " said Tite
Looks like Fred won't make the squad tomorrow.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 09:48:44
Tite said Fred.



22 May 2018 06:28:13
Rumour seems to be Alderweireld in bailly out
Wouldn't be that much of a surprise bailly is struggling to get a game at the moment and seems to be 3rd or 4th choice .
Shame as he looks a good young player.


1.) 22 May 2018 07:28:42
Rumour is he was dropped as he reported ill for the WBA game but then was fine for training the next day.

Another example of JM’s management style making us suffer for his own personal gain. Shocking as Bailey is our best CB and should have been playing.

2.) 22 May 2018 08:36:22
Plus being well enough to train and being well enough to play are different things. If bailly had the squits you can't stop running mid game to clench the cheeks.
No one would want to see the brown shorts of shame although it would of taken the focus off the dour wba game.

3.) 22 May 2018 08:55:45
Rumour is just that rumour. I dint think he'll be going.

4.) 22 May 2018 10:30:34
Another of his own signing mourinho can't manage, i am sure jose supporters would like us to spend 1 bn each season to replace all the players the grumpy one falls out with each season but it is time we look at this practically and that only 1 man seems to be the problem here.

5.) 22 May 2018 10:38:45
I don't understand how any one can even think of Bailey leaving. He has been our only good defender (whenever he plays) for the last couple of seasons. It's been a very long time since I've seen such a good defender in our team. And to think that smelling and Jones deserve to remain here is just atrocious. If the above scenario actually happens then even though I'm a Mourinho fan, I think he would have lost his mind.

6.) 22 May 2018 10:59:07
Its more media bs. The other say it was lindelof leaving. Before that lukaku. Before that pogba. Bear in mind united sells papers, clicks. If they say enough names eventually they'll get one right.

7.) 22 May 2018 12:24:56
Thank you Dr Shnauzer for the medical perspective.

8.) 22 May 2018 12:36:21
To be fair bailly is struggling for a game and lindelof is struggling to get on the bench .
Would it not be more of a surprise if we sold someone like smalling who starts every game .
If you are a manger would you rather sell your 1st choice cb or 4th.

9.) 22 May 2018 13:24:41
Bailly is going nowhere. He is our best defender.

10.) 22 May 2018 14:48:06
Smalling and Jones are only herr because they are english. If yhey weren't english they wouldve been kicked out of the club long time ago.

Bailly is going no where this year unless we get both Umtiti and alderwereld which will be highly unlikely.



20 May 2018 10:47:37
Has Rasford progressed as a player over the season?


1.) 20 May 2018 10:54:27
I think he's gone backwards as a player. maybe due to tactics or something else but defiantly not improved at all. there could be something else behind the scenes we will never no.

2.) 20 May 2018 10:59:38
Got to be honest he hasnt.

3.) 20 May 2018 11:15:11
gone backwards for sure. he is talented but i don't think he is as good as people think he is. i don't think he is a natural finisher and his decision making is poor. hopefully he can develop these but i think martial is far more talented than him. I like rashford and on form he can be very effective and direct. but i think that needs to be on the left rather than centrally. tactics are not helping him but maybe he is just going through a a slump that young players go through. a loan would do him the world of good.

4.) 20 May 2018 11:23:23
Rashford has had a poor season. His free kicks, corners, link up play, and awareness have generally been poor. There has been the constant feeling that our midfield and forwards are all playing as individuals rather than as a team, and nowhere has that been more apparent than in Rashford's game.

It not unusual for a young player to have a down year after a good one. The question is whether it's a normal blip or something more fundamental. Is it a result of bad tactics, a failure to adapt to the tactics, a lack of team mentality in the dressing room and on the field, or does he just not have what it takes?

5.) 20 May 2018 11:30:18
Park3 do u think martial has improved over the season.

6.) 20 May 2018 11:39:28
Raahford lacks composure infront of goal and is greedy at times but he is young and may or may not improve.

I think if Martial was given as much game time as him he wouldve done a whole lot better.

7.) 20 May 2018 12:33:40
No he hasn't improved but whos fault is that?

Do we place all the blame on jose mourinho or can rashford take a little but of personal responsibility for his development?

8.) 20 May 2018 12:40:38
I may be in the minority here but i honestly don't see what everyone sees in Rashford. All he does is run around and you don't need talent for it. I don't remember who it was but one of the posters called him similar to welbeck which at the time i thought was unfair to Rashford but now i think it is really unfair to Welbeck. If he wasnt English he wouldn't be anywhere near the team. Rashford seems more David Bellion than Ronaldo.

9.) 20 May 2018 12:41:29
Jred I think martial has improved. Up until Xmas he was our player of the season for me. Sanchez signing has displaced him. But I did expect martial to take the challenge of Sanchez head on and expected him to step up his game. Disappointed he has come across a bit sulky and not really fought for his place. But I don’t think he has had as many opportunities. If it was between keeping rashford and martial it would be martial for me. Want neither to leave and love having a local lad play for united. But martial is more talented and has a higher ceiling for me. What do you think jred?

10.) 20 May 2018 13:01:24
I think both need a run of games .
Martial is the better player imo and was playing well and scoring just before we bought Sanchez.
Looks like he is being forced out to me .
But 2 much chopping and changing for me.

11.) 20 May 2018 13:16:31
I think Rashford has the talent and a willing attitude. He has had a difficult season, for sure. I would put it down to the following:
1 - Jose does not have the patience waiting for a Rashford or Martial to deliver, thus his reason to buy Sanchez.
2 - Sanchez has not only taken minutes from Rashford and Martial, he has been really poor. He has not scored, and the play going forward is worse with him, since he holds onto the ball too much.
3 - If Lukaku will always be first choice at center forward, then Rashford or Martial have to operate from the wings, and both seem to be better on the left.
4 - When Rashford does get minutes, he probably feels more pressure to deliver.
All of this worked against him, but I still hope he can come through and deliver. But under Mourinho, I have my doubts.

12.) 20 May 2018 13:20:03
Not a Mourinho type of player. Hindering his process. Needs a more attack minded coach to get more out of him.

13.) 20 May 2018 13:30:16
Yeh can’t argue with that jred. Agree zidaniel I was all for the Sanchez signing but it’s getting ridiculous now the double standards with some players. Smalling, Young jones and Sanchez can play poorly and keep their spot. Martial, rashford shaw lindelof bailly are not seen for weeks. All of the latter would improve us and we would be a much better side. These decisions are baffling. My confidence was knocked in Jose yesterday. I can take losing but that team selection was laughable, especially the defence. I will give Jose another year but he is only thin ice if he continues playing those players simply not good enough for united.

14.) 20 May 2018 14:27:41
Every time he is about to receive the ball, dribble the ball or pass the ball - I think "this is going to result in lost possession", just occasionally he does something great, which probably amazes him more than it does me.

He looks like a lost sheep, with a wolf showing him directions!

15.) 20 May 2018 14:35:18
The question we should ask is were martial and Rashford improving up until Sanchez signed? Since then they have gone backwards for sure.

16.) 20 May 2018 18:52:29
I love Rash but he has been poor lately, but no poorer than Sanchez who has been awful. We had 2 young exciting talents who were taking no turns and dong ok, we sign Sanchez and since then they have struggled. Hmmm.



19 May 2018 22:02:39
In our last 4 games we have conceded the huge amount of 2 goals .
But that's ok because in our last 4 games we have also managed to score 2 goals .

2 goals scored in our last 4 games .


1.) 19 May 2018 22:17:14
It’s worse I think we only got one goal in our last 4.

2.) 19 May 2018 22:25:47
I hope we don't have to spend another quarter of a billion to fight for 2nd in PL and 2nd phase of UCL.

3.) 19 May 2018 22:29:54
And we conceded 5 in 5 prior to that, I know your a fan of Smalling and that’s fair enough and I know Jose has played him regular but imo he isn’t good enough for United, it’s a facade that we are great defensively, DDG has produced so many saves in games to keep clean sheets to the point he’s 5th behind Butland, Fabianksi, Ryan and Pickford for most shots saved, what does that tell you.
Smalling wasn’t bad today and my issue isn’t just Smalling but the mediocre back 4 and others we have that we are convincing ourselves are good enough to be on top in England and Europe, Just my option and I respect yours on the matter, I’m sure we both just want the same for united but for me Bailly is the best defender at the club and we are crying out for full backs and a centre back, wether Jose agrees we will see, I don’t like all this spending as much as the next fan but only so long I can wait for the current ones to reach that top level.

4.) 19 May 2018 23:00:09
It's not a case of me rating smalling it the stupid post blaming everything on him ( that have been all season) .
He had a decent game today again but same people posting the same rubbish .
I like bailly but since he come back from injury he has struggled looked very rash and been all over the place.
No surprise he been dropped.

Our creativity, play in the last third, transition in cm, tempo have all been poor . Can't keep blaming the back 4 team only conceded 28 goals in 38 league games .
Didn't lose today because of smalling no matter how many times you post it .
Didn't get knocked out against Sevilla either 2 goals against over 180 minutes because of smalling. Mistakes from matic and the can do no wrong bailly .
Number of goals scored against them in 180 minutes 0.
Shots on target over 180 minutes. 4?

5.) 19 May 2018 23:03:34
Long time red
Yes my mistake 1 goal scored in our last 4 matches with the attacking talent we have .
How do other teams do it?

6.) 20 May 2018 08:01:43
I agree our attacking output is poor, seems to be a lack of cohesion up top, no tempo or energy and it’s baffling with the amount of talent we have on paper, something just isn’t clicking in this team.



15 May 2018 17:45:12
Just some food for thought, over the years I have had some discussion/ arguments with shappy over various things, one was Jose.

I wanted Jose at the club I though he was what we needed a big enough personality to manager a club like United. A serial winner .

Shappy never, he said the style of football would be poor, I argued he was over reacting it wouldn't be that bad .
He argued the young players would be hung out to dry, he said martial would be gone in 2 year? I was adamant the cream rises martial and rash would kick on under Jose.

In short he argued Jose wasn't the right fit and he might well be right .

2nd in the league is about par for the course imo with the squad wage bill and money spent .
The football has been a lot worse than I was expecting tho but on the whole we look like a Jose team doing what Jose team do .
It looks worse because pep and city are outstanding, there is far more to the improvement in city than he "bough some full backs ". that's a ridiculous view imo .

I like Jose, wanted him at the club he is a great manager but I'm not sure he is the right manager for man United.

He will and rightly so be here for another 12 month but I would be surprised if he is still at the club after that.


1.) 15 May 2018 18:24:38
This debate is more boring than the football.

2.) 15 May 2018 18:55:07
A lot to agree with there jred.
The cream is rising to the top jose doest suffer weak hearted and weak minded players. Shaw blind darmian fellaini hardly started a dozen league games between them.
Martial may or may not leave but the choice will be his. He may decide to stay and fight for his place or he may think I have no chance here because the manager doesn't fancy me and i don't believe in the manager. If leaving is his choice then all the club can do is maximise his value. So far we have paid Monaco €39.5m and he is close to triggering 2 further €10m payments for scoring 50 club goals (still a bit away even after 3 seasons) and if he is named in the top 50 in the balon dor list no sign of that yet but it could happen I suppose.
The football has been dull, imo much duller than anything a jose team has produced before. You know my opinion on that. Imo its mainly down to the players.
Lots of money has been spent no doubt about it. But yet we have a squad with no proper full backs to speak of. A glaring deficiency for a playmaker in midfield and no right sided player despite everyone having a go.
I think he will address those issues in the summer and if he does improve the quality of player and gets the right blend then the quality of the play will improve a lot.

For me the biggest mistake jose made this season was his team selection at home to Seville I was there that night and it was awful and cost us our place in the last 8.

Totally agree that city's improvement is not only down to the full backs, their keeper was great for the most part sane improved out of sight kdb also and sterling also. But they will miss silva more than many think next season and reappearing this season's feats will be near impossible. Pep has done a great job there over the 2 seasons. But he has been fully backed bought 17 players and had the backing to cull his squad as he saw fit. He got players in ever position that could all fit into his system. If he had players that couldn't play his system or fit his thought process he does what he did the season before. How much did walker have to do with sterling's improvement? A lot I think. Creates space all the time for sterling giving him more time and space to play and run into.

I know you don't think anything will change next season no matter who we buy I beg to differ. He has as you say rightly another 12 months to get his squad together I think he will buy better quality players in some positions and i believe that will lead to better quality football to watch.
A sustained title challenge is what we all want and a trophy. That's what I want every season.
City have set a new benchmark. I think we will rise to the challenge.

3.) 15 May 2018 19:51:57
Jred, when you've been on the site as long as me and you have then it's inevitable that opinions are going to clash at times. What I like about this site is it rarely gets beyond heated debate. There is a respect, whether that is strictly from the posters or because the Ed's make it so doesn't really matter to me.

What's important to remember is we are all on the same side and we all want what is best for our club.

Not that I'm keeping score but that 197 times I was right and 7 times you were. Lol.

4.) 15 May 2018 21:12:19
Lol don't always agree but I respect your opinion .
Is the cream really rising to the top? Same way KDB and co did .
City's biggest improvement is in the players they had but people like yourself struggle to get your head round that .
You say Jose hasn't got the players he wants but what you mean he hasn't got the players you want .
You have gone on and on and on about fellaini . A player Jose likes, not me or shappy ajh or many more but Jose.?
Smalling is another Jose first choice cb you don't rate him but Jose pick A him week After week?

Look at the abuse u give Valencia? Jose made him club captain .

Lol walker and sterling how does sterling play for England with walker . With out pep?
It's such basic opinion it's boring.

6.) 15 May 2018 21:47:02

7.) 15 May 2018 22:21:22
I can't get my head around the improvement in city players when I said sane sterling and kdb improved out of sight?
Just proving yourself to be a jerk and start a row. Funny little man you are😂😂😂.

8.) 15 May 2018 22:19:12
And you supported the manager when he wanted ibra not me not park not angel jose.
Lol your double standards are legendary
Not tell me about the abuse I give valencia. Another of your traits is gross exaggeration when it suits.
When was last time walker played rb behind sterling on the right for England probably asked to do different jobs idiotic point.

Jose was quoted last week that he says he knows he has players that don't or can't cut it. So sounds like he hasn't got the players he wants.

I agreed with most of your post and you stll find a reason to have a poo. You can't help yourself😂😂😂😂😂.

“Anthony is disappointed because he has shown his love for the club and the supporters for three seasons he has done his best for three years and it is important to remember that he scored 11 goals and made 10 assists"
Part of the statement from martial agent that shaps was probably referring to .

If you read the whole thing it sounds to me " pay my client more he deserves more game time " that's an agent's job.

I haven't questioned his record, what I said was I think he will want to go out at the top not fade away .
Last 2 seasons his goal return and games played in the league were his lowest since joining .
His overall goal tally for this season and the previous are the lowest since his first season with Madrid.

I think he will want to keep that tally up and will find that hard to do in the epl and with United I don't see him hitting 50 or 60 a season for United. Even the 42, 44 he over the last couple of seasons .
And at 33 years old coming back to the EPL is big ask .
So it's not if he will score goals it's if he will score as many and be as influential as he would like in this United team .
Psg makes more sense ibra scored 38 league goals in his last season and then 17 the following for United.
I think it's harder to score goals in the EPL than either French and Spanish league and a lot harder on the body . Ask ibra
Ronaldo could probably prolong his career avoiding the EPL.
Buts that just my opinion.

Last 2 seasons he has scored 25 and 26 league goals great return for any player other than Ronaldo.
I think he would find it harder to score goals in the EPL and maybe the physical nature of the league but you never know .
Messi scored 34 and 37 in comparison and that's playing a deeper role, if Ronaldo can't continue that standard I think he may look at America or even France with psg.
