Not sure if I can post this.
On The BBC website, there us an article on Bielsa pre season training. Upto 4 training sessions a day. Well worth a read. Shows you how dedicated a manager he is aswell with all the in depth analysis he does.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 18:46:48
Here comes my stupid question of the day! Could Phil Jones play the Matic role along with McTominay, I don't mean both playing there, but could he be an option?

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jul 2019 19:33:21
His time is up at United.
Very unreliable because of his injury record.

17 Jul 2019 20:38:36
No no no no no no no.

17 Jul 2019 20:53:51
Ken - you missed a no.

We can't count on jones to play his role. if we get a decent offer i think he will be gone.

17 Jul 2019 21:37:51
Ken, his distribution is ok, he just can't defend. Maybe he could do the role.

18 Jul 2019 02:20:11
If the seagulls weren't following the trawler, but were keeping the bench warm in the medical center, maybe it is time to choose another player to build your team around.

The best player in your squad is your worst player when he is unavailable for selection.

Everyone understands players can be unlucky with injuries, but when they start to stack up to level PJ has had, and then when you watch him play you wince when you see him try to make yet another stupid lunging recovery tackle due to being out of position, maybe it is time to move him on.

Give tuanzebe a chance ahead of PJ.

17 Jul 2019 18:24:16
So what transfers do people expect to see with United between now and the close of the window and what do people think our starting 11 will look like?

Personally I think we will see Pogba and Lukaku leave, along with Darmian, Rojo and possibly Jones.

I expect us to sign Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Longstaff and Milinkovic-Savic. To go with AWB and James who have already signed.

I think we'll start the season like this:

DDG, AWB, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, SMS, Bruno, Lingard, Rashford, Martial. In a 4231 type shape.

However, I think we'll finish the season with this line up:

DDG, AWB, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Longstaff, SMS, Bruno, Greenwood, Rashford, James.

{Ed004's Note - I think Maguire, Fernandes and Pepe (pure guess work) will sign with Darmian, Bailly, Rojo, Lukaku and hopefully Sanchez leaving. First choice side will be:
De Gea, AWB, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Pepe, Bruno, Martial and Rashford.}

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 18:53:11
We will sign 2 more.

{Ed004's Note - Im going for 3 more}

17 Jul 2019 18:47:47
Ed 4 - Not a bad team I hope your right!

Shappy - I think Pogba will stay pal.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think we will get a winger so probably sub in Lingard or James for Pepe. Although if we got a winger we would have a strong back up 11 as well}

17 Jul 2019 20:29:18
I'm hoping for Maguire bruno and savic

Keep bailly sell rojo Jones darmian.

17 Jul 2019 20:37:55
Dan James will start the 1st game imo.
3 more in cb 2 xcm. Maguire bruno longstaff
4 More out rojo darmian Lukaku plus 1 more
Tuanzabe henderson will go out on loan possibly with chong imo

If any of pogba matic or sanchez leave it would require another in.

17 Jul 2019 21:00:25
I am with you Ken, 3 more in and that is without losing Pogba. If Pogba does go then we have to put all that money into SAUL. Savic is a good player, but if Fernandes signs then Saul would fit in better than Savic. If he is unobtainable then Savic would be next up.

I think the front 3 for the Chelsea game will be, James, Rashford and Martial, unless Greenwood keeps scoring in pre season.

16 Jul 2019 15:33:18
Can somebody please tell me why we are allowing someone like Trippier to leave the country for £25m when we are crying out for a player like him? Why didn't we kidnap the lad and make him play for us, he is exactly what we need, just my opinion.

Deadwood is ruining this club taking so long to get good deals with players that the manager wants and not the exact ones I want, GGMU.

Agree5 Disagree3

16 Jul 2019 16:15:26
Haha GDS2,

You will struggle getting bites.

16 Jul 2019 16:19:59
Dalot and Wan Bisaka. Does anymore need saying.

16 Jul 2019 16:36:56
MH,

Apparently not.

16 Jul 2019 17:26:39
GDS2,

Shooting fish in a barrel.

16 Jul 2019 17:44:34
Maybe because we've just signed Wan Bissaka for right back. Some people are never happy.

16 Jul 2019 18:41:52
Oh dear, bait well and truly gobbled up.

16 Jul 2019 19:12:07
I guess this just shows what people are expecting united fans to say now, this is the kind of nonsense I see on Twitter all the time and it’s a shame. I assumed the kidnapping part would make it fairly obviously that it was a joke though!

16 Jul 2019 19:12:43
That’s 2 . Keep fishing.

It was the last sentence that made me laugh about the manager getting the players he wanted and not the ones you want GDS. what did Ed say when you gave him your list and told him you know best :)

16 Jul 2019 20:50:30
Haha I read the post and thought ‘not another’. Always check the author!

17 Jul 2019 06:00:59
I think it's a heinous crime. One that definitely should result in the manager getting the boot. How our scouts miss out on talent is beyond me.

This will take a while to digest.

17 Jul 2019 14:52:22
My reply was tongue in cheek guys. Just wanted to see if anyone believed it lol.

15 Jul 2019 21:22:14
Question.
Considering that Sporting want around 70m for Fernández. Does it make sense to pay a bit more and get Milinkovic Savic instead?
Or it's difficult to fit him alongside pogba?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 10:19:12
dev, why would you want to do that?

16 Jul 2019 12:49:42
They are two diff players. One plays like Gerard and the other Lampard.

16 Jul 2019 15:05:58
If you believe the papers we are showing interest in both. Bruno to replace Herrera and SMS to replace Pogba if he leaves.

16 Jul 2019 20:51:58
Perth, Bruno and Herrera are totally different.

I think we will look at McT or Fred to fill Herrera’s boots.

17 Jul 2019 15:18:14
Wazza, I didn’t mean In style, just personnel. Numbers. 1 out 1 in.

14 Jul 2019 19:40:44
Well done England in the cricket. They were passionate positive and never gave up. I hope we play with the same intensity and desire this season.

Agree3 Disagree3

14 Jul 2019 19:40:35
For those worried about Maguire s pace or better lack of, just consider that neither Vidic nor Bruce were considered fast.

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Jul 2019 20:17:43
dev1l, football has changed a lot since then. Over the past decade or so, the majority of the PL teams have become more and more adventurous with some quick forward players always looking to exploit a lack of pace/ mobility in the opposition.

For me Maguire has some decent deceptive pace to take care of most situations, but he needs to work on his positioning against much more faster players.

15 Jul 2019 08:48:04
I think united will play counter attacking football from a defensive position anyway, pressing the opposition quicker too where possible and getting back into shape quicky when we don't have the ball. We have pacey full backs who can cover round and hopefully with Fernandes and even a McTominay we have dynamism and hassling around in the midfield area.

14 Jul 2019 17:16:18
Really disappointed that we have buckled and paid £60 million + £20 million in add ons.

Its not worth that amount and is a lot of money for someone who is not world class, when will this club learn.

This will impact us acquiring other players needed to improve the team.

Agree1 Disagree5

14 Jul 2019 17:54:43
Big V,

Why do you care about the money? It’s extremely boring, good deal imo.

14 Jul 2019 18:16:40
I think the disappointment stems from signing someone who just isn't that good to be honest.

14 Jul 2019 20:25:36
Sepp,

That’s fine but that isn’t what I’m reading, I’m reading nonsense about money. Maguire is actually quite good though.

14 Jul 2019 22:21:31
Surely if its 60+20 then we will only pay the extra if certain targets are met. If that's the case then we will all be happy to pay the extra.
Money aside I'm happy with Maguire. Need to address midfield now.

15 Jul 2019 11:55:11
I want the club to stop over paying for players.

80 million with add ons or not should only be spend on a world class player, Maguire is not world class.

15 Jul 2019 17:20:54
What's it matter to you Big V what the club pays. As ed002 always says, forget about the money as it just complicates things.

15 Jul 2019 18:49:09
He’s worth whatever someone is willing to pay, or they wouldn’t pay it, simple.
Give the lad a chance.

14 Jul 2019 09:45:56
If we do sell romelu lukaku and it is to be assumed that rashford is oles first choice striker.

What would people make of signing callum wilson as his backup/ alternative?

Experienced premier league striker whos a proven enough goalscorer, does the fundamentals (hold up play, intelligent runs, link up play) really well and can play in a two as he does with josh king at bournemouth.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 10:13:49
Just signed a contract extension soon DSG. I think if he moved he’d want to be a starter somewhere.

14 Jul 2019 10:27:38
Ignore me, he signed a brand spanking new 4 year contract yesterday 🤦🏽‍♂️

Fair to say i would not make the best director of football lol.

14 Jul 2019 15:12:32
What's up with Martial, Rashford, Greenwood and James having a rotation up front and on the left, then we can spend the £60 million from Lukaku on a decent right winger and any Pogba money on his replacement? Leaves us only a CDM and a CB to buy.

15 Jul 2019 21:54:14
I'd take vardy.

13 Jul 2019 10:40:25
There are some very interesting pieces that appear regularly on The Player's Tribune which give quite unique insights into the background, lives and motivation of some top European players. De Bruyne on his painful shyness and his friendship with Sterling, Lukaku's piece on groing up in poverty ang Gotz on his illness and Klopp are some of the highlights. Koulibaly's piece reveals what a good man he is and that he has no desire to leave Napoli. Most of the articles show the players in a more humble and honest light. Except one. Jesse Lingard's piece stands out as silly "banter", and makes him look like a show-off with very little insight into what might have frustrated Man Utd fans in recent seasons. It reads like it was written by an immature teenager. Compared with De Bruyne's palpable passion for football, it perfectly captures (with no insight whatsoever) a serious problem with the current culture at Man Utd.

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Jul 2019 11:51:23
I really liked the Lingard one, thought it showed his personality really well and explained how he feels about things.

14 Jul 2019 16:38:54
GDS, get with the programme, Lingard is am immature fool who should be sold immediately.

15 Jul 2019 18:02:00
Lingard is a childish dick. Oh and ‘Beans’ Rashford is his best mate. Having grown up in the MUFC academy one would have hoped this attitude would have been fixed. Unfortunately ‘stupid’ isn’t fixable. Lingard to a greater extent and Rashford to a lesser extent need to grow up and understand just what it is they represent in terms of our club.
