Utter disgrace if the rumours are true about giving Lingard and Lindelof extended contracts. Does this club never learn. Probably give them a massive rise too.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

{Ed047's Note - didn’t they give Smalling and Jones new contracts? so anything’s possible.

11 Sep 2019 08:02:55
Weren't you all singing Lindelof's praises at the start of the season?

He's a good defender, but with an obvious weakness in his physicality. Similar player to our own Christensen in fact. If you ask me, extending Lindelof would be the right move. And Lingard is a useful squad player I'd say. You need those as well.

What's wrong with giving Lindelof a new contract? He's everyone's first choice CB alongside Maguire.

Agree7 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 08:42:11
So you'd rather let them run their contracts down and leave for free?

At least with a contract if they leave we will get a fee.

And they are both decent players, internationals and first team players.

{Ed047's Note - and there lies one of your major problems, if they are the way ahead as players capable of winning the big ones then in the words of Turkish, “Your proper f’d” 😉

11 Sep 2019 09:01:05
Lindelof is a good centre half.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed047's Note - compared to Chris Smalling or Phil Jones?

11 Sep 2019 10:58:00
Maybe spend another 80 million on Keane, then him and Maguire can be the new chuckle brothers.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 10:58:58
Lindelof was our best player last season. And he's halfway through his contract so yes he's due for contract talks and an extension. He's made a couple of mistakes this season but is miles ahead of the three stooges.

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

We reward mediocrity.

12 Sep 2019 10:22:53
Lindleof is a great CB and is still relatively young in his position. Was solid last year and can form a good partnership with Maguire.

Lingard I'm not sold on though. doesn't offer much on the pitch for me. A good back up player but should never be starting games for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Sep 2019 13:36:47
All the problems we have and you choose to get annoyed about us giving one of our best defenders a new contract?

Some fans are strange.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Sep 2019 17:59:04
Gds2.This is where the problem lies. Yes he might of been one of our best defenders but that doesn’t say much these days. He’s not physically strong enough in my eyes to be a top drawer centre half in our league. He doesn’t come close to McGrath Bruce Pallister Johnsen Stam Rio or Vidic. i'm not saying he’s a bad player but we need better if we want to close the gap.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Sep 2019 19:35:43
My opinion that has been so since before the Summer is that we needed 2 new CBS. Maguire is great and Lindelof is a good defender but he isn’t strong enough in the air. I think it’s time we have Tuanzebe a chance.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 10:35:42
"Maguire is great" Giggsy? What is he great at? Not defending that I am sure. What is he great at other than heading a ball. Lindelof is a better player overall in my view. Maguire is decent but he isn't half the player media is making him out to be


But it all personal opinion though and judging by my track record I am likely in the wrong.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 19:56:33
Deependra I completely agree with you.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Sep 2019 08:54:48
Lindelof and Maguire are both better than we had and need time to form a partnership and need a settled choice of fullbacks alongside them. Are their better out there - probably - but give these guys a chance. Our priority transfer area is midfield now anyway, not defence.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2019 11:16:19
Anyone know the situation with Fosu-Mensah? Are we looking to offload?

With Smalling and Darmian gone, might be a good back up for right back? Not sure he's actually good enough.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

30 Aug 2019 11:28:07
Well he won't be offloaded this summer as he is currently injured. I expect Ole will have a look at him when he returns to training and make a decision once he's seen what he can do.

Personally I'm not expecting much from him. I had high hopes 3-4 years ago of him developing into a top holding midfielder. Yet he has had to play nearly all his first team football at RB or CB, which I don't think has helped him develop as well as he could have done.

Agree9 0Disagree

30 Aug 2019 13:33:40
He is included in the PL squad if that's anything to go off.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2019 16:04:14
Another with arrested development. I think we need to assess him before making a decision. make or break season.

Maybe a new challenge as a DM?

31 Aug 2019 09:49:12
Maybe that's the what Pogba was on about when he said he wanted a "new challenge", he didn't want to leave, just fancied trying to prove himself in a different position. Goalkeeper maybe? 😂.

He might see more of the ball that way at least Shaps!

Good luck to him. He needs to go back to Italy and play some football. Sad it didn’t work out for him here. He
Looked great in his opening few games and just went downhill from there. Not quite good enough unfortunately.

I have heard a rumour that the club are gearing up to start improvements to the South Stand next year. However, the same rumour is that the land around OT has been bought not by United or our present owners but by a Middle Eastern connection. That is all I have heard but this is a rumour site.

Very good AJH. Looking into the neighbours house and thinking everything is rosey isn't necessarily the case.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 16:45:11
Wouldn't the ownership of the ground be public knowledge? There should be a way to check this up.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 18:06:49
LovelyLudwigVan

It said land around the ground. If you know the area the railway is right behind the South stand, there is a station there but behind that are houses and a street. The ground is the clubs and some land around it but no idea which bits.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 18:48:22
Yeah it's long been an issue, if I'm not mistaken Railway Rd is where they'd need to buy the houses, and they'd need to find a solution for the rail tracks. I just thought property owners, at least of non-residential buildings would be information available to the public. I remember reading that the costs to expand the stadium would be as much as building a new one, which will probably continue delaying any work.

Hi All,

on the South stand situation.

The land is owned by the railway as is the bridge/ walkway from Railway road into the stadium.

I have friends who live on Railway road and they have not been contacted by anyone with regards to selling up.

In fact Jay (the City Fan) lives on the right of the bridge some 4-7 doors down (not giving his address. lol)

His place would be one of the houses directly impacted by development.

He'd been previously advised regrading the improvements when they were first put up for public review. although the extension would encompass the actual railway the physical building would be bridged over to form a covered station/ platform. It wouldn't require any of the houses to be bought unless it is found to cause irreparable damage to the property through ground disturbance.

Sunlight and shade is said to be of concern however due to the angle of the road they would still get a lot of light in the rear gardens.

Monk.

Smalling to join Roma on loan.

I think we have had a decent summer to be honest.

Getting rid of Lukaku, Sanchez and Smalling in one window is some achievement.

Yet Rojo is still here.

Add Darmian to that list. I can see them all gone by this time next year as well as Young and Matic.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 12:34:55
Nobody wants rojo because he's garbage. He'll have to be an end of contract release.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 13:05:19
Rojo is hard to sell due to the restrictions of countries he can play in.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 14:25:11
Not to mention the restriction of sports he's any good at.

Agree2 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 14:36:12
And he's one of the worst players we've ever had. Usually injured and whenever he makes it to the pitch he's a red card waiting to happen. No ones going to pay money for a player who doesn't play.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 15:05:27
accoring to the rags rojo was stopped from joining everton because of the fee for the player. that and everton were seen as rivals for 4th place.

29 Aug 2019 20:18:07
Guess Rojo can play left back too (if sorts) if he can stay fit.

Hi ed002. Hope all is well. Are there any of our fringe players attracting any interest from any European teams at the minute?

Thanks!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Smalling is of interest to Roma who are fast running out of options. Pogba is of interest to Real Madrid but they are looking to someone else now. Rojo remains of interest to Fenerbahce and Matteo Darmian to Inter but both look unlikely.}

29 Aug 2019 13:03:24
Very kind Ed, thank you.

I've bee told pogba is pushing for 500,000 a week to stay at United and they are considering it.

This is also holding up the de gea deal.

Feel like its 1 step forward 2 steps back with this club and it is so annoying.

Anyway onto the game at the weekend, I see another difficult game but I think we will get over the line.

Have fun chaps.

29 Aug 2019 10:25:37
He needs to be sold. His heart isn't in it. Ed002 has stated numerous times he wants go. If he left, the team can move on and stop babysitting him throughout games.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 15:38:21
I’d sell him even if it ‘weakens’ us in the short term. We’ve moved Lukaku and Sanchez on, that’s 2 gone, Pogba is the remaining one who seems to not want to be here. If the price is right, take it.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Aug 2019 20:32:24
I agree, let pogba go. £500,000 if true is a joke. Obviously there is no knowing if it is true or BS. Ed002 might have an inkling i guess but won't want to comment, which i don't blame him for when it comes to money.

I'd rather get rid of Pogba now, accept we have a huge battle on our hands this season if so, but be ready to recruit well in January or summer, with a cleaner slate having cleared out some of the big money problems, and some of the crap footballers we have been stuck with.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Aug 2019 10:17:25
A little confused by Ole's stance re Sanchez. Less than two weeks ago he was telling journalists that they would be surprised with how much he features this season and today he announces that the club are still actively trying to get rid of him. He needs to learn that sometimes it's best to say nothing.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation - it is about money and finding a taker. If that happens then he goes - but the club has to have the stomach to take a significant loss and his wages stay on the books. Ignore what OGS says.}

23 Aug 2019 20:54:49
Redseven ole is full of crap in his press conferences. All managers are.
You could pick holes in any of their statements as they often contradict themselves week after week. In fact they often do it in the same conference.
Ignore the lot of them. Its all BS lapped up by the gullible.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Aug 2019 20:04:47
ED002,

I get the feeling that OGS is playing the role of good cop.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Aug 2019 21:46:24
Come on guys. Most of us think Sanchez need to leave including the manager and the club. Even if there is a player there, the fact Inter and Roma are in tells us what level he is at best. He’s passed it and it’s tine he left.

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Aug 2019 11:22:16
Inter Milan are in the champions league. Not a bad level to be at.
