Ed is there any more news on angel homes future, been a lot of talk he could be leaving in the summer.

Reports today that pogba could be out for six week and that Jose wants ozil.

jred

1.) 14 Sep 2017 10:05:11
Shame about pogba hopefully herrera or fellani can do well in the b2b role hopefully pogba's back for the pool game as for ozil would stay well clear of the lazy frog.


2.) 14 Sep 2017 13:00:41
Ozil gets a lot of bad press for me a lot of the time unjustly so and is one of the scapegoats in that Arsenal team when things aren't going well, his decision making and final pass is 2nd to none, lukaku and rashford would be licking there lips to play with him.


3.) 14 Sep 2017 13:21:19
Stratford
He is a star player for a very good German national team . Player of the year 5 times in the last 6 year.


4.) 14 Sep 2017 12:54:23
I would happily take Ozil, especially on a free Stockport. He gets so much undeserved criticism for when Arsenal play bad, again this season he's created so much for them but they waste everything he creates, making him look like he's had a poor game. If Jose can get him to the level he was at during their time in Madrid then we will be in for a treat as he's that good.


5.) 14 Sep 2017 14:46:18
Who would you drop for Ozil?
And would that mean Griezmann is off the table?


6.) 14 Sep 2017 17:20:19
In a world where an average footballer can cost 40 million, Ozil on a free is a no brainer. Judge a fishes ability to climb a tree and you won't be happy wit the results. Ozil isn't there for his work rate and off the ball pressing. He's there as the key to unlocking a defence. Stick him in amongst world class talent and he'll shine.


7.) 14 Sep 2017 18:09:30
Pretty sure Ozil ran about 1.5km further per game than Sanchez last season. I think his laziness is a myth. We've played well with Mata wide right this season and I'd see Ozil as an upgrade, so wouldn't be wholly against this at all.


8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:41:12
I would drop Mata and play Ozil in the number 10 role. he would be our Scholes which we have never been able to replace. Would have to play 4231.

Stick Griezeman on the right and rash/ martial based on from and merit get to play on the left with lusaka on top and then you have a scary team with Pogba and Matic in there.


 

 

07 Aug 2017 14:17:25
Lot of rumours we have moved for segi Roberto.
Would be a surprise.

jred

1.) 07 Aug 2017 15:06:54
Interesting rumour, I like him. But struggle to see where he fits into our team. Maybe back up in midfield and at right back.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 15:42:52
Would be a good back up like Shappy said.

Personally can't see the reason though, would prefer Fabinho if we wanted a backup CM/ RB.


3.) 07 Aug 2017 16:13:11
Not for the prices touted around.


4.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:15
The lads a cm/ attacking cm got converted to play RB and lb just to get him in the team, he struggled at full back tho .
That's the Barcelona way, but he is not really a fullback and it showed.


5.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:52
Mort 34 mill seems cheap these days .


6.) 07 Aug 2017 19:25:48
Just for your information, guys. Chelsea reportedly were willing to meet his release clause, but the player himself didn't want to move away from Barca. Make of it what you will.


7.) 07 Aug 2017 21:16:53
34 mill for a squad player who's be no more than cover is still a rip off.


 

 

04 Jul 2017 12:15:00
Do any of the eds have any idea if united still have an interest in lukaku.

jred

{Ed002's Note - Yes, nothing has changed.}


 

 

15 Jun 2017 14:28:42
Reports Madrid have turned down a bid for morata and are holding out for 80 mil.

jred

1.) 15 Jun 2017 14:47:17
If that's the case I'd say see ya and go look for a different striker.

How can they seriously ask for that much for someone who sits on their bench?!


2.) 15 Jun 2017 14:53:47
If that's the case and they come calling for dave the save. It's simple

We over price them as well. I can't stand Madrid.


3.) 15 Jun 2017 15:02:22
Bolger, I=if we follow the price for goalkeepers (Pickford 30 mil and Ederson 45 mil, there is no such thing as overpricing de Gea.


4.) 15 Jun 2017 15:18:09
Agree weggy walk away if there's any truth in 80 million we are trying to compete with real Madrid not finance their next superstar by buying there sub. Who else is going to give them anywhere near that, call there bluff and walk away or change target . I'd rather poke up Torino than real Madrid.


5.) 15 Jun 2017 15:24:54
The problem is we would be buying a player they don't particularly want and they would use the money to buy one the best young strikers in the world in Mbappe.

I'd rather pay an extra 30m and go for Mbappe instead.


6.) 15 Jun 2017 15:47:44
Weggy,

The problem with that is, that Mbappe doesn't want to come to United. You pay Monaco 200 Mil, Mbappe still wouldn't sign on the dotted line.


7.) 15 Jun 2017 16:44:33
Mbappe is so overrated one good season in france and there talking stupid money he's the same as martial but with confidence and playing in an easier league we need a number 9 Mbappe is similar to rashford, martial we need the finisher goal scourer! Morata'balotti, kane type player!


8.) 15 Jun 2017 17:30:18
If that's what Morata's price tag is get it paid and get him signed up, we can afford it, mourinho wants him and he wants to come. I would rather pay what they want than include de gea in any deal.


9.) 15 Jun 2017 18:09:20
Where does it end though GDS? At some point we have to draw a line and refuse otherwise the 200million war chest will only end up buying 2 or 3 players instead of the rumoured 5 that we're after.

I get the impression Madrid are just being arsey because they can't get De Gea from us easily.


10.) 15 Jun 2017 18:19:09
I agree GDS it's all speculation anyway.

The problem we're facing is the player is under contract, from what I've read Madrid would like to keep him and he has no real desire to leave other than to play more regularly which can't be guaranteed at any top Club he joins anyway!

Madrid can name their price, try and get the best deal for their Club and negotiate from a position of strength.

If we don't want to pay the money we go elsewhere but your probably talking even more money for the likes of Lukaku or Belotti and are either of them much better anyway?

If we don't go for any of the above who are the alternatives?

Do we go with just Rashford and Martial?

For what it's worth I don't think we'll pay anywhere near £80m and the deal will get done around £60-65m.

We set the bar high when we shelled out over £60m for the relatively unknown Martial, we can't blame Madrid for trying to get the best deal for their player.


11.) 15 Jun 2017 18:49:14
Danny IL try and offer a view as why a few struggle with morata price . What's causing his valuation people don't see it in his record, sub then 15 in two seasons at juventos then back to Madrid bench again, nobody saying he's a bad player . Is valuation because there's fierce competition for him forcing the price up, maybe but haven't heard much about that . Or finally is price seeming so high cause they don't want to sell, but they seem fairly keen to negotiate if that's the case, maybe they are only willing to negotiate because it's to good a deal for them not to . Personally I'd walk away explore other options and see if there stance changed a little if all interest went because of the price . Hopefully figures of 70 or 80 million is wild paper talk.


12.) 15 Jun 2017 22:20:06
These fee's are getting beyond a joke. Maybe it is just me but if we need to splash the cash wouldn't it be better to go after a Lukaku, Snachez or Costa who have proven guaranteed goals in England?


13.) 15 Jun 2017 22:36:31
40 mil. Is a good price for him.
When clubs see us coming they put the price of a player up.


14.) 16 Jun 2017 00:06:41
I would want us to go in for Aubameyang. Seems his move to PSG has broken down. He's rapid, scores goals. sign him up!


15.) 16 Jun 2017 07:17:20
I would take Aubameyang all day long - especially now the SUN (! ) is reporting Morata is offered 350,000 quid a week -.


16.) 16 Jun 2017 09:14:26
With you here MAZE.

If we're going to over pay for a striker we might as well go for one we know is capable of doing it in the PL.

Signing Lukaku for 80m makes more sense than signing Morata for 80m.


17.) 16 Jun 2017 13:45:31
It all comes down to how badly they want to sell him and, to a lesser extent, how badly the player wants to leave. If, as Zidane maintains, they don't want to sell him - then I can see them holding out for silly money. If, as I suspect is the case, they're looking to use the money as part of a bid for another player, they will try and get as much money as possible but will not push too much on the price for fear of scaring us away (as we are one of the only clubs stupid enough to pay that kind of amount right now) .

I can see us signing him for around £65m - which is way too much considering his true value but not so bad when you consider how much players like Carrol and Pickford cost in the past.

Personally, if the price rises much higher than £65m, I'd like to see us turn our attention elsewhere. I still maintain that every player has a price - and so if we're going to spend an insane amount I'd rather we throw the money towards the very best strikers like Kane or Dybala.

Their clubs may say that they don't want to sell - but offer the right amount and eventually they will bite. The players may say they don't want to move - but if you offer them enough money they will change their tune.

For what it's worth (and before people start making this point), I hate that I find myself making this suggestion. There was a time when I believed that the reputation of the club and the prospect of playing for us was enough to attract the best players - but that time has gone and football has changed. We haven't been competitive at home or in Europe for four seasons now - so we need to bring in the right players to get the club back to the top. If that means spending - then so be it. At least we're spending money generated by the clubs success rather than being bankrolled by oil.

2nd in the league not really sure why people are so convinced spurs Chelsea Liverpool are so much better than us all had ups and downs .

The big problem for us and everyone is pep and City how good can pep make city, can they continue this form can they get better?

The big question is can Jose match him.

jred

1.) 05 Nov 2017 22:16:51
Good point Jred, no need to panic just yet. If City maintain that form nobody will catch them we should just stick to what we're good at and see where we are come the New Year!


2.) 05 Nov 2017 22:20:59
Chelsea are better than us, proved it today.
We are equal to Liverpool.
And better than Spurs.

No Jose can't match Pep. The way City are playing they are a real force. They are making the Chelseas and Arsenals look ordinary.
Utd just don't have that tier when it comes to playing the big sides that City have.

To me City are fearless, and Utd are very weak they have no killer instinct, we try not to lose before we go to win, top 4 is a good season. (not that I would enjoy saying that but its reality) .


3.) 05 Nov 2017 22:39:45
FZZ,

Not quite how it works, are spurs better than Madrid because they beat them? Anyone can beat anyone on a given day, are Everton as good as city because they drew at the etihad?


4.) 05 Nov 2017 22:45:35
When we are at full strength, only City are a better side in my opinion. However we aren't playing well and they are playing out of their skin, so we have room for improvement, loads of room. I cannot see them keeping this form up. We will see what happens, but I think 2nd and that's what I believe I put on AJH's predictions.


5.) 05 Nov 2017 23:02:05
Its not GDS2, i'm just being daft.

But the point i'm trying to make is we are not really better than Chelsea are we? We were well beaten today.

I think Chelsea are better than Spurs and Pool so we probably lie in and around them 2 (spurs and pool)


6.) 06 Nov 2017 05:38:55
Spurs and Chelsea will round up top 4 with the 2 manchester teams. These games always comes down to who has the best 11 available and a difference of a goal and who scores first. If city get injuries to Debruyne, silva or auger they will have their issues.

People need to calm down and we seem to be great or rubbish every week after a result. We always lose at Chelsea and its a very difficult away fixture for us for donkey's years.

Still believe we will finish second.


7.) 06 Nov 2017 06:58:45
It simple really Chelsea were better than us on the day and they won.


8.) 06 Nov 2017 07:07:05
X files.
Good post that.


9.) 06 Nov 2017 07:53:16
Apparently we’ve won once in the league at the Bridge in the last 16 years.


10.) 06 Nov 2017 09:08:06
Good post x. We will be fine.


 

 

05 Nov 2017 19:47:53
Poor performance today but credit to Chelsea awful midweek good today .
We suddenly need a new manager and 10 new players .

Role on the international break hopefully we come back the same team that went in to the last one .
Few Injuries and a bit of a slump it's time like this that the manager needs to earn his money and justify his reputation.

jred

1.) 05 Nov 2017 20:07:08
Just a confidence issue in my opinion, 3-4 positions strengthened between now and September.


2.) 05 Nov 2017 20:10:31
Are we under performing now or were we over performing before? I really don't know the answer but recently we have stuttered and stuttered and flattered to deceive. Midfield seems to be the issue for me, we have a lot of talent up front and enough in defence but in the middle we are lacking. Pogba will help but I think we are a world class CM short of being a very good team. Everyone bangs on about full backs and a wide rIght player but I think the yawning gap is in the middle of midfield, we need another star in there and we will be fine.


3.) 05 Nov 2017 20:16:35
Syd
So if we go out and buy a player he will come in and play great?
Who honestly played well today, some good players out there today had very poor games.


4.) 05 Nov 2017 20:21:24
Obviously a lot depends on what Jose wants to do. But from what the editor has said we are looking at the position where most of us feel we need to strengthen. If we are adopting the 3 CB formation then we will likely need another CB, this ties in with what the editor says.

I don't need to mention the fullback positions as they are obviously areas we need to improve and areas Jose is looking to improve. Perisic is a player Jose really wanted, but screwed up by Woodward. Hence the tension. A box to box midfielder that will replace Fellaini in all likelihood.

So we don't need ten new players, but we did do when Jose took over. Anyway, let's get behind the team and hope our fortunes change.


5.) 05 Nov 2017 20:22:56
Never a guarantee a signing will work out well Jred. But managers buy players to improve the team/ squad. So that's what Jose will do.


6.) 05 Nov 2017 20:36:13
Syd
But he has bought players .
Buy a new cb? Lindelof can't even get in the squad.
We lack a creative 10? that why we bough Miki, Mata can't get in the squad .
Buy a wide player? are we getting the best out of either martial or Rasford?

United like all teams will buy players every summer but at some point you need to deliver.
Start of the season most people would of been happy with a midfield 3 of Miki Herrera matic there not bad players . Options of martial rash and lukaku up top .


7.) 05 Nov 2017 20:51:04
Lindelof isn't deemed ready and from what I have seen have to agree with Jose. He was also a MU target prior to Jose taking over. So don't think he was a Mourinho signing per se. As the editor said Smalling and potentially Jones were available for sale during the summer, so I guess one or both still have a price. Also with playing three at the back, you need six as Jose likes two players for each position.

I guess you could say same for Miki, he doesn't really have someone pushing him in that position. I guess we can wait and see what Jose wants, but for me we need to strengthen 3-4 positions, maybe five in the squad.


8.) 05 Nov 2017 21:07:25
Syd
Was lindelof really a United target before Jose come to the club he had only made 15 first team appearances?


9.) 05 Nov 2017 21:22:49
Didn't we fail to sign him the season before? I'm probably wrong. Maybe he was a Jose choice? But certainly isn't ready yet anyhow. Mind you Vidic didn't start too well, but didn't turn out to shabby.


10.) 05 Nov 2017 21:48:45
Looked at him at Xmas syd.


 

 

01 Nov 2017 21:11:15
All these great amazing world-class players people told me all summer Madrid had .

Teams more important than the individual .
If Madrid win nothing this year are all there players not good enough.

jred

1.) 01 Nov 2017 21:47:02
But wouldn't you rather have their less defensive style?


2.) 01 Nov 2017 22:07:48
There were some strange results tonight but it's great to see Ramos throwing his toys out of the pram.

There doesn't look to be a standout team this year, I guess PSG are the ones to beat right now but they haven't been tested yet.


3.) 01 Nov 2017 22:33:36
I think they need 3 David De Geas never mind one with defending like that dear me 🙈🙈🙈.


4.) 01 Nov 2017 22:40:31
They are back to back champions league winners, of course people are going to call their players world class.


5.) 02 Nov 2017 00:47:16
It's a team that achieved what no other team has managed its a team when all available is full of world class players and win 3 of last 4 cl. Even world class players have dips and confidence issues. Well done to spurs they were great tonight. Maybe zidane should have called jose for advice. Great results for epl teams so far bar the chelsea results.
Winning our group we could draw madrid let's hope the slump in form continues but i doubt it will for long.
Zidane made an error imo by not bringing in some top fresh blood. Always a good time to improve and bring fresh competition and avoid complacency is when your on top. 3 or 4 years now with essentially the same team perhaps its a bit stale at the moment.


6.) 02 Nov 2017 08:12:21
Watched city last night, very good pep has got them playing very well.
Delph at lb had another very good game .
Could do a Moses this year and be an un fancied player who finds a place in the team .
Stones has been good as well .
Sterling knocked in his 10th goal of the season

Pep has All them individuals playing well and as a team .


7.) 02 Nov 2017 08:13:43
Should also say napoli are a good team to watch.


8.) 02 Nov 2017 08:48:52
Madrid are slowly coming towards the end of their cycle. Whilst Ronaldo is still an amazing player his superhuman achievements are just starting to decline. Make no mistake despite all the excellent players in their squad he made the difference just like Messi does for Barca. I totally agree with Ken it is was a mistake not to invest in the summer, they have rested on their laurels and are possibly suffering from a slight lack of motivation without any new blood to give them fresh impetus and increase competition for places. Their first 11 virtually picks itself when everybody is fit. They even sold Morata without replacing him!

I can't believe they didn't sign the likes of Pogba and Mbappe and even more surprising is they appear to have been out bid for both which would have been unheard of a few years ago!

The balance of power is slowly shifting away from the big three of recent years Barca, Madrid and Bayern in my opinion.

In the premier league we now have the best coaches in world football at the top clubs, Pep, Jose, Conte, Potch, Klopp and most with big money to spend. We really are in a golden era and should all enjoy this time. If they all stay in their respective jobs for the next few years it won't be long until we see English sides consistently making the semi's and finals of the Champions League with the likes of PSG in my opinion.


9.) 02 Nov 2017 09:08:34
Danny
I think your right there, it looks (fingers crossed ) the next cycle is starting to come .
Messi like Ronaldo papers over a lot of cracks, always reading on here no United players would get in the barce or Madrid team but there are some average individuals in both teams especially at the back in defence .
They hide or get carried along by the very good players and the likes of Messi and Ronaldo who take a team to another level .
Take some of them players out the Madrid barce team I don't think they would look anywhere near as good .

Credit to spurs beat Madrid 4.2 over 2 legs.


10.) 02 Nov 2017 09:23:50
Wow jred. You must have missed real over the last 2 years. Have a look at what they won.

Yeah, decent players 🤣.


11.) 02 Nov 2017 09:53:43
Angle
Some very very good players but not the 22 world-class players people would have you believe

Very good team but team as always is the word .
People always seem to judge a player by the team he plays in and how the team plays .
Look at the Monaco team, would people be having wet dreams over fabinho like they where last year if Monaco never had mbappe and co a bit like they haven't now?

United got beat by Madrid only a couple of month ago go and read some of the embarrassing post on here at the time .
Watch delph at the moment or Moses last season and read all the post on here about we can't win the league with out a new lb or rb .

Watch sterling playing in a great team at the moment and read post that we need to spend 200 mill on a fancy wide player (Big name) or that martial isn't that good?


12.) 02 Nov 2017 10:14:05
Totally agree Jred and Spurs have made Madrid look relatively ordinary over the two games. Whilst Spurs do play good football I think their strength predominantly comes from their defensive unit and in the two games against Madrid they have simply defended better and have had the quality up front to hurt Madrid.

Bringing me back to Utd a lot has been made of our style or perceived lack of it! I believe that all teams should be built from the back, giving the platform for the more creative players to play. I actually like Jose's style, I respect a well disciplined, well organised, professional team where everybody knows their job!

In terms of Utd I think we're still a team in a process, but like Fergi, Jose has found a way to make us competitive whilst still building the jigsaw. I agree with Paul Scholes's recent comments that we're still a real quality No 10 away from being a world class unit. Miki and Mata both have undoubted quality but have lacked consistency, which should be better given their ages and experience. I'm not entirely convinced that Jose is completely happy with any of the front 3 behind Lukaku. Rashford and Martial obviously have talent but will Jose be around long enough for them to reach a level of consistency that he desires?

I think over the next few windows we'll look to add some real quality in those positions and with that I'm convinced we'll see more attractive, attacking football. Don't forget Fergi could be the ultimate pragmatist at times. He often turned to Fletcher and Park in big games and he left Tevez, Berbatov and Scholes on the bench in a Champions League final in failed attempt to add energy and numbers in midfield against a Barcelona team that had YaYa Toure at CB. Just saying!

Jose has turned OT into a fortress again and isn't it significant that home games like the other night against Benfica just seem routine?

I really hope we tie him down to another contract. Whilst I don't expect him to be here long term I'd love to see him battle Pep both at home and in Europe over the next few years!


13.) 02 Nov 2017 10:18:33
I know what you are saying. But I don't believe anybody was saying 22 world class players. That is never he case in any team.

But they achieved some incredible feats over the last number of years. Many of their players warrant the tag 'world class'.

I know you like an 'I told you so' but you really are off the mark on that one.


14.) 02 Nov 2017 10:25:28
Angle yes there where pal .
Only 1 pogba maybe 2 players bailly would get in the Madrid squad.
Casemero was world-class?
There wing backs where world class.

Is it I told you so or a case reading day after day how our players aren't good enough and all these other players are amazing .
Slag your own drool over everyone else

Danny
Great post pal.


15.) 02 Nov 2017 10:33:09
I think the point is that it is up to the Manage to get the best out of his players, Zidane did it last year as did Conte and we can see Pep starting to turn Delph into a decent plate.

Jose is renowned for improving players, this is what we need to see and what will make all the difference.


16.) 02 Nov 2017 10:48:59
Ajh
About sums it up.


17.) 02 Nov 2017 13:01:05
Sorry jerd, I don't know what you mean with 'Slag your own drool'.

I know where you are coming from but personally I don't say Real have 22 world class players, that's just an overstatement. But I can acknowledge that they have some world class players. 3 UCL's in 4 years. Pretty incredible if you ask me.

Last night's game is not a fair reflection of the IMO.

I just felt it was trying to be 'I told you so' again. It's unbecoming of you jred, that's all.


18.) 02 Nov 2017 16:40:00
Angle
Ajh hit the nail on the head.


19.) 02 Nov 2017 21:32:59
To be fair Jred, it's Jose who wanted a shiny new winger (Perisic), not us. And I think Jose it far better placed than you to decide what we need. Don't you? It's Jose that also wants Danny Rose. So I don't understand the criticism of people on this site, they are simply seeing the gaping holes that Jose can see, that you clearly don't.


20.) 03 Nov 2017 07:27:02
Syd. I don't think that's the point. Shaw was an England international but allegedly he and Jose are no longer on speaking terms. Darmian is an Italian international who is in and out of our team. It's not as easy as saying we need better players, we need to improve the ones we have.

With Jose it seems to his way or the highway which is quite an outdated approach. He should be looking at Shaw and asking "how do I get the best out of this kid" whereas what he seems to do is criticise publicly (not just Shaw) .

I think we have a very strong tr and a strong squad who are not playing to their potential. Rather than just keep buying players we need to get them to play to their potential.

AJH - I agree with that. All of that. I like Shaw but he's always injured. There are things Jose wants to do and I can see why. Mata lacks speed where he is playing. We need a regular LB. But agree we have a good squad. Just two positions away from great I think. Anyway, have a great weekend guys.

'I hope that you enjoy the game more than some of you did against Tottenham" Jose

Is he looking for an argument with the fans? That's a few digs now.

Kinda don’t blame him, no matter what he does, says, doesn’t do, he gets stick from his own, let the man do his job which he is doing successfully and enjoy the ride, cavalier football or not, the mans job is to be results.


2.) 31 Oct 2017 11:44:49
People booed huim when he took Rashford off and then his replacement scored the winner so he is being smug. I am sure the fans have stronger backbones than to take offence, it is tongue in cheek.

Is there really an issue tho or is he looking for 1 .
Where has that comment come from, who didn't enjoy the game against spurs .


4.) 31 Oct 2017 12:05:44
Thr mamager getting booed for a decision he made that left us with 3 points against a title rival - i'm with jose on this one.

But its definitely tongue in cheek as well. Just let i'm do his job.


5.) 31 Oct 2017 12:37:07
he's planting a seed for an exit.


6.) 31 Oct 2017 12:58:40
Is this not typical Jose? It's all about him and his ego and if he feels aggrieved he will say so. His comments are unnecessary and picking a fight with your fans seems plain dumb, is is about the 4th time albeit the Fellaini comments he made were spot on.

I think fans tend to get on the back of a manager or player for the slightest thing these days .

But I'm not really sure there was a real issue here, who wasn't happy with the win at the weekend .
Good positive result that is starting to be dragged down a bit.


8.) 31 Oct 2017 13:24:25
I agree with ajh why carry on with these comments after what was a very good result, it's unnecessary and just causes a bit of friction.

It's the main topic on this page and the rumour page and no doubt up and down the country .
Which coming of the back of a good win against spurs seems a bit counter productive .
I'm really not sure it was an issue until Jose started to make it one.


9.) 31 Oct 2017 13:54:39
Jred, maybe a bit of both, he does tend to make expamples out of things, like Tony says typical him, poss planting seeds if he needs to sow them later on aswell. I enjoyed the game, was like a war of attrition.


10.) 31 Oct 2017 14:03:22
You brought it up on this page, I knew nothing of the comment until you told us what it was, perhaps fans getting on their high horse and making a big deal of it is also the issue?


11.) 31 Oct 2017 14:07:18
Totally agree, jred. I came away from the game thinking it was a very good result, and a decent performance, against a very good Spurs side. I really don't believe anyone was booing Lukaku, and I can't see why José has made an issue of it. No-one I know has any doubts that he's a very good striker, who just isn't receiving the right service of late.


12.) 31 Oct 2017 14:33:30

I brought it up? Jose has put it in his programme notes it's been picked up by most websites and news out let's.
The post on the rumours page also have nothing to do with me .

Honestly don't see what the point of some of the remarks are especially after a good win against spurs .
The shhh to the camera comments on rash on lukaku this today, what good does it do .


13.) 31 Oct 2017 16:39:15
Typical Jose isn't it? The guy could start a fight in an empty room.

Just one of those things you have to accept when Jose is your manager. It's part of him and his mantra.

It was one of the three reasons I gave for why I wasn't sold on the idea of having Jose as our manager.

He breeds controversy.

His tactics can be negative when playing certain teams.

He doesn't seem to trust young players or plan for the future.

How many of those have been proven right already? I like Jose, I just never thought he was right for our club.

But we have him now, so we need to back him.


14.) 31 Oct 2017 18:03:46
Classic Jose, there's always a method to his madness. Whether it be to get a pay rise, get the players he wants January or planting a seed to leave, who knows, perhaps a combination of all three. If he doesn't get A and B, then it's C.

All of this stems from the Liverpool game in regards to fans unhappy. Many fans were disheartened with how we set out to play against Liverpool. Myself included. But we must move on and back the manager. We are in good shape, get our injured players back and we are good to go.


15.) 31 Oct 2017 18:56:46
Most of the people on here were vehemently against booing our manager, our players in the last couple of seasons but when Jose makes a point following booing at OT for whatever reason that principled position seems to be lost.


16.) 31 Oct 2017 18:57:41
Who wants a PC manager?! It’s character enjoy the banter some fans and pundits get on his back does he not have a right to say something back.


17.) 31 Oct 2017 19:14:50
Red Man, I can't think of a time or occasion when booing your own players or staff is ever acceptable. I'm still to be convinced there was any actual booing, as opposed to some groans at the decision to take off Rashford. Was it really worth bringing a fairly nonexistent issue up, on the back of a very good win?


18.) 31 Oct 2017 19:23:54
Is there anyone who visits these pages who thinks that Jose is a good fit for Man Utd and wants him as our manager?

Don't forget how toxic we supposedly are so I'm sure we can use our displeasure to curtail his time at the club; eh Ed002?


19.) 31 Oct 2017 19:27:06
Stevie

Depends on how it has affected the players. On Saturday the crowd seemed quiet, it didn’t sound like they were behind the players until we scored. So many times I have been there when the crowd made the difference, they need to again. I wasn’t there but it sounded like groans when Lukaku didn’t go after a ball and boos when Rashford was subbed.


20.) 31 Oct 2017 20:25:26
Jose wants out end of the falling out has already started.

Doesn't sound like there is much happening this Jan.
Interest moved on from dybala and Griezmann, could move for lewandowski in the summer to replace ibra and his outrageous wage .
Interest in a top end cb and savic again more likely summer if Jose still here.

Arnaiz? Interesting choice, asensio
Looks a real talent would be surprised if Madrid let him slip through there fingers although reports are saying 180 mil so you never know, not sure he is a winger .
Perisic just signed a new contract will soon be 29 .
3 very different players.
