I’ve loved reading the posts this week and for what it’s worth, here’s my view.

Maguire is not necessarily the greatest defender but he seems like a big character and as has been said he is better than what we have. The price is irrelevant to me, fees are soon forgotten (unlike wages) . I think he will settle quickly and make a difference.

AWB looks a quality buy in a position where we have struggled so I’m confident that will look a steal as the season progresses.

James has huge potential, looking forward to seeing how he develops.

Dybala I don’t want. No idea where it came from and we really shouldn’t be entertaining it. Fancy name, not pulled up any trees for a couple of years, really don’t see where he fits in.

Fernandes look quality and would be a good signing and if we are interested then I have no idea why it is taking so long.

We need to ship Pogba out as quickly as possible, assuming anyone has made any sort of sensible offer. I don’t buy the line that he’s really popular. If he isn’t committed to the cause then he needs to leave.

Sanchez also needs to go. I’d even let him go on a free or nominal fee as it would free up at least £15M because of his ridiculous contract.

Lukaku also needs to go and again I’d take the best offer that is on the table. We may lose on the fees but the benefit to team spirit and morale of shipping out players who don’t want to be her is immense. There’s a bunch of other players we need to move on and again we should make it attractive to potential buyers. Darmian and Rojo for starters.

Imagine those 5 gone, 4 new signings (I’m assuming a CM is coming), and a few from the youth promoted. The feel and mood will be lifted and with the extra fitness and energy, with everyone committed and pulling in the same direction, who knows where we will get to.

I fear there is not enough time left to move players on but for me that is just as important on bringing new ones in.

It would be foolish to let pogba leave so late in the window, no chance we have enough time to obtain a replacement.

Saul would fit the bill, but that would be a complicated deal and there are questions marks over whether he would even want to come.

Are SMS or fernandes as good as pogba? if looked at objectively you would say they were not on his level.

Dybala is probably the clearest route to getting rid of lukaku as inter milan are unable to source the funds to do a deal, so this swap deal is a pretty good compromise to get rid of a player who doesn't fit oles style and bring in a player who does.

25, 5 year contract means we have plenty of scope to get a resale value when he inevitably pines for a move to madrid or Barcelona like pogba. Could be a shrewd bit of business by the club.


2.) 03 Aug 2019 14:49:29
DSG, if you put my reservations aside, Ed002 has said Dybala doesn’t want to come. If he’s having to be convinced then we shouldn’t do it,


3.) 03 Aug 2019 15:15:18
Tony do you honestly expect Dybala to happily want to leave a team with Ronaldo and several stars which is guaranteed at least a major trophy and also UCL football every season and come over to us because we are Manchester United?

That ship has sailed!

No matter how attractive a team is, it still has to make an effort to appeal to a prospective player.


4.) 03 Aug 2019 15:18:42
I honestly think you will be surprised how many player would not want to join us this summer. No champions league is a big loss especially in a window where bayern, real, Barcelona and juve are all making big deals.

Look at sancho, he realised that coming to united this window would be not be ideal for his development when we are undergoing significant changes and his development was much better suited staying at dortmund.

Does that mean we shouldn't go in for him next summer when we will still need to convince him we are the right club with the right stability for him to continue his development?

Dybala is an oppurtune signing granted but if he does join it won't be against his will, quite a few player over the year have needed to be convinced/ persuaded to join clubs.


5.) 03 Aug 2019 15:23:18
I really don't get why people would wants Pogba to stay. Old may say all the right things about Pogba having a great attitude blah blah blah, but the player clearly wants out.
If we keep hold of him against his wishes we will just have the same circus every transfer window. It's unsettling for everyone, including Old, despite what he may say in public.

Pogba is obviously talented and is a match winner on his day. I understand that, but keeping an unhappy player is counter productive.

On the flip side, we shouldn't be forced to sell him on the cheap. But over inflating his price so that he is effectively priced out of a more is daft in my opinion.

Despite the fact that some fans 'hero worship' some players, Pogba is not worthy of that label. Talent is nothing without application, effort and desire and Mr Pogba is severely lacking in the later.


6.) 03 Aug 2019 15:35:43
Until last week his name hadn’t come up, nobody on here had suggested we try and buy him or he would add anything to our team. Now suddenly many are drooling over him and I don’t get it. We should have learned from Di Maria. He doesn’t want to come, allegedly he wants £350K a week, allegedly his agent wants £13M, it’s possibly taken our focus from Fernandes. The only positive I can see is we lose Lukaku, that’s about it.

I don’t really buy the Champions League argument. Actually I do buy it and it hacks me off. There’s only a few teams that will win it, and there seems to be a snobbishness that has materialised with players ‘not wanting to take a step down’. I’m not sure how we’ve allowed it to become so important, for me the domestic title is still the biggest trophy by far.


7.) 03 Aug 2019 15:37:47
Of course he needs convincing AJH. He is not a fan like is. He is at a top club where his life family and friends are and you think a good pitch and lots of reassurances are not required.
You don't seem to be the sort of chap to make knee jerk life changing decisions without due consultation and thought process and advice. Do you think dybala should?


8.) 03 Aug 2019 15:56:18
Is aguero not a good example why is it always di Maria.
Do people think aguero was a life long city fan desperate to move to a team that had won nothing for years?
Or did him and his agent need a bit of convincing and a bucket of cash .

I'm not saying we should or shouldn't sign him but there's a bit of a line in the sand starting with one or 2 players,


9.) 03 Aug 2019 16:02:27
Of course he's reluctant. We're not exactly known for stability are we. He enjoys life in Italy and is reluctant to leave. But Juve are forcing him out.


10.) 03 Aug 2019 16:03:54
Madrid have been making sensible offers for Pogba throughout this window.

UTD think they can get more with very little other clubs being able to afford him.

Only a few clubs or so at the over inflated fee and wages able to afford Pogba which sees UTD keeping a player who wants to leave *evil laugh*.

Barcelona not going to sign Pogba.


11.) 03 Aug 2019 16:09:33
What offers have real made?


12.) 03 Aug 2019 16:24:59
Guys AJH has a point. The problem is not there is a convincing required for Dybala. But why to convince a player who is not seen as much needed who is not willing to move to us who will demand monstrous wage who has stalled for the past year. If it is someone who we have identified as main target it's worth going through the trouble. Imagine we sign him and has not really worked out then we will have another player on 350k wages very difficult to move.


13.) 03 Aug 2019 16:35:27
I said the same to shappy last week jred.
People are saying don't sign him he doesn't want to be here. Yet those same purple are saying keep pogba even though he doesn't want to be here.
If dybala comes and he and the team are successful he will love it at United. Just like aguero has done.
Im not desperate for him to sign if he does it would be potentially a very good and exciting signing.


14.) 03 Aug 2019 17:00:59
My wider point is he hadn't been mentioned by anybody, the fans hadn't suggested him nor were the club pursuing him. Suddenly a swap is on, not exactly thought through is it?


15.) 03 Aug 2019 17:02:49
You could say the same with pogba, if go his and uniteds way he may have a change in heart .
Not sure why everything needs to be set in stone .
I'm far from convince dybala would be a good fit in the epl, who who knows.


16.) 03 Aug 2019 17:11:34
Is it possible for a player to come in, not really wanting to come in at first and then change his mind? If he is the consummate professional, he might also put in some decent performances.

Also, he could just say no right now?


17.) 03 Aug 2019 18:00:01
Ajh
He was mentioned a few month ago, don't know if the reports where true but he was linked a few months back.
But some times a player becomes available and you take a chance, any Cole, king Eric.

Angel
Is it possible that a player wants to leave then circumstances change and he changes his mind, Or do we hold it against him for the rest of his career.


18.) 03 Aug 2019 18:01:09
The club have had interest in dybala for 12 months according to ed002. i'm not convinced but he is a very talented player so if he settles it could work out.
Pogba is here and if he stays and does well he may well have a change of heart i agree but i'm not one for keeping unhappy players it usually doesn't work out. We can on my hope it does if he stays.


19.) 03 Aug 2019 19:33:15
Hi jred, not at all. I think if a player has a change of heart and wants to stay, put in the performances etc, he should most definitely get the chance. I think that's quite fair. But definitely no point keeping a player that is unhappy and wants to move. Does this answer work?

Is there a particular player you are talking about or just anyone in general?


20.) 03 Aug 2019 20:00:04
Angel
To many to mention to be honest once any one makes a mistake or reportedly does you want them out.
Lazy bad attitude said this said that.


21.) 03 Aug 2019 20:17:14
No, I'd like you to mention them. Very happy to give you my reasons behind everyone.

I'm quite sure that when I have shown my dissatisfaction in a player it is usually merited, justified.

I don't call for players to be bought and sold like in a game of FIFA.

I also am very happy to back good, hard working and loyal players when many dont. Again, when I feel its justified.

Feels like you're just having a pop though. It's something you like to do quite often. I hope I haven't upset you at any point. Or will you hold my opinions against me for the rest of my time posting on here? 😊.


22.) 03 Aug 2019 22:15:30
We have appointed Director of football - it's AJH

All sound decisions taken. 🤫.


23.) 04 Aug 2019 09:23:15
Reading the page the last day or two it’s clear we don’t need any insight from Ed002 as maxlfc knows absolutely everything about our club lol.


24.) 04 Aug 2019 20:42:32
Oh man :P
Wrote a post about how the youngsters are doing, and how you feel about them and this turned into Pogba/ Dybala debate.


25.) 05 Aug 2019 07:31:02
To be honest guys I don't care and the reason is we are focusing on players not playing for our club.
When the focus should be #GlazersOut.


 

 

24 Mar 2018 10:31:23
There are some that said Jesse wasn’t good enough and I guess there are still some that think he is at best a squad player but you have to give the lad credit. He keeps popping up scoring important goals and he plays with a smile on his face and seems to enjoy every moment. I’m so pleased for him and I hope he can take that final step and be consistent.

AJH

1.) 24 Mar 2018 16:25:04
He has always been highly thought off within the club. It was always accepted that he would take longer to find his feet due to his size. I read an interview with him where he said that Sir Alex always said he would become a real player when he's 25 like Tigana. I wonder how much of him really stepping up this season is down to him feeling that this year was going to be his year.

I did worry when we signed Sanchez as it was going to push either Lingard or Martial out of the side when arguably they we our best two forwards at that time. Maybe its time for Sanchez to be dropped for a game or two and make him fight for his place against players who are in form.


2.) 24 Mar 2018 16:40:40
Shaps, I don’t know why we bought Sanchez other than to stop City buying him. We had needs inother areas way before a left sided attacker was needed and even if he starts firing it just relegates Martial or Rashford. This smacks of Woodward and his marque signing obsession. I don’t want to upset you but if Bale is available you can bet your mortgage Ed will be there waving his chequebook.


3.) 24 Mar 2018 16:46:51
The thing with Jesse is you know he will work on the pitch and not hide. He has proven this year that he has more in the locker than people thought imo but he had the beginnings of a good season couple of years back when he got ani injury early on at Swansea I think. Change of personel and management has not deterred him and I think he has saved us a good few bob on bringing in a n other player.


4.) 24 Mar 2018 16:58:44
I was one of those thinking he wasn't going to be up to it and would be sold, at times I feel foolish, but then he can be anonymous far too often for me (like most of our attacking players) .

I still think in order for us to be competing at the very top we need better than Lingard. But if he improves again as much as he has over the past 18 months then he will deserve a regular berth in a top Utd team.

I love his energy and clever runs, maybe there is even more to come from him once we get back to playing proper attacking football and those runs will be picked out by players that currently refuse the pass and opt for 'safety' instead. I certainly would like him to impact games more consistently as well, 10 seconds of brilliance now and again is good, but we need more than that over a 90 minute match from an attacking midfielder.


5.) 24 Mar 2018 17:39:38
I agree Beastand that was my point about consistency. When he is good he is very good but often you can forget he is on the pitch, which is very frustrating when he gets himself in such good positions and scores such important goals. He needs to turn up for more games than he does, which I think he will if he continues to develop as he has done in the last year. And he is home grown which means a lot to me,


6.) 24 Mar 2018 17:52:11
Does he go missing or as mentioned above is it a case of him making good runs and his team mates not playing the creative pass to find him?

The best players score in the big games, which he does more consistently than those around him. H deserves his place in the team, he works hard, he offers movement and he can finish. I think he will thrive if we add more quality to the midfield. He is a bit of a social media whore, but as long as he performs on the pitch it’s not a problem. I wish pogba put half the effort in he does.


7.) 24 Mar 2018 18:33:58
Agree with all of the posts regarding jesse in some degree, better than dele alli in my opinion who plays a similar role especially this season.


8.) 25 Mar 2018 05:21:49
I must be the only one who doesn't yet rate him. He for me is going through his Smalling patch where player looks good for a season or 2 but with lingard it has only been 2 months rather than the whole season.

He was mostly anonymous until December and has been anonymous for most part since February. That is 2 good months in 3-4 years. Yes he scores some important goals from time to time but he going to have to perform much better to be more than a squad player.


9.) 25 Mar 2018 16:58:04
No MU player apart from De Gea has been sensational for long, playing good for some time and then playing poorly.


10.) 26 Mar 2018 14:14:47
CSM, that's not really fair, even if he's only started looking like a real top player this season, he's actually been doing well for the last couple of years. He was hardly "anonymous" before December anyway. 8 goals and assists in 17 games, 11 of which he played 30 minutes or less in, may not be setting the league on fire, but it's certainly not "anonymous".

Re: the consistency, I'm inclined to agree with Huggy. He's suffering from the way the team is playing, and would have a much more consistent impact if the runs he makes were picked out a bit more often by players behind him. Now, I'm not saying he's doing everything right, maybe he'd still be a bit inconsistent with players behind him looking for those runs and playing more positive football, but the point is that we don't really know, and I don't think it's fair to judge him too harshly when we don't really know how much of the inconsistency is down to him, and how much is down to the way the teamas a whole is playing.

I would really love to see Herrera used in a more advanced role, ahead of Matic rather than alongside him, where he can look to play the passes that someone like Lingard can feed on. It's too easy to see his great defensive performances last season and forget that he's a great passer of the ball, with an eye for getting team mates in behind the defence.


11.) 26 Mar 2018 14:23:10
That FA cup winning goal seemed to really kick him on and he’s improved a lot since then.

CSM,

How you can say he’s been anonymous is beyond me, he’s probably scored more important goals than any other player in the last 2 years.


12.) 26 Mar 2018 14:53:27
Gds important goals don't mean consistency. Yes he scored against Chelsea and in fa cup final but can you remember a run of games until December where you could say he was consistently good. A first team player needs to be consistently good and unlike rashford or martial lingard isn't exactly in the youngster category.

Thorne he has been good this season but last season he had 5 goals and 3 assists in 42 games in lvg's last season he had 7 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. Those are not good figures and he needs get similar to his current nos before we can be sure that he has improved rather than going through a purple patch.

Also where exactly will he play next season jose wants savic added to the team and jorginho as replacement for carrick, so we most likely will be switching to a mf 3.


13.) 30 Mar 2018 18:44:50
Good player, nice lad, silly dancer.


 

 

17 Feb 2018 08:31:11
Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.

AJH

{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}


1.) 17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?


3.) 17 Feb 2018 11:20:17
Yay. Thanks ed for that.


 

 

12 Jan 2018 21:19:21
All this talk of Sanchez has masked the rumour that Vardy is also being considered. Not sure if they would sell or at what price but I think he would slot in much easier, albeit he is a like for like with Lukaku. Sanchez’s attitude worries me, the stories from Arsenal about his isolationist approach do not bode well for team spirit. Hey ho, what do I know?

AJH

1.) 12 Jan 2018 21:28:45
I hope not. Hateful diving git, Gerrard, suarez, terry, barton, keown, cattermole, Vardy. all the same to me would of hated to see any of them in a red shirt.


2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:05:33
That's one heck of a team those lot would make. Lacks some wide players tho.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 05:53:05
bfbw, there too much hate in your heart, i'd have had Keown and Suarez any day of the week. Go hug a tree man.


4.) 13 Jan 2018 08:10:14
AJH Vardy is a player Maze likes and admired over the years for his tenacity as well as his rags to riches story but to say he is a better option than Sanchez is silly, very silly.

Wake up AJH you are dreaming of poorly fabricated scenarios.


 

 

08 Dec 2017 20:28:41
So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.

AJH

1.) 09 Dec 2017 01:43:34
Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.


2.) 09 Dec 2017 10:50:17
We’ll park the bus and try to catch them on the counter and via set pieces.

According to press reports this morning we are targeting Grealish and Maddison, or alternatively Can and Longstaff. I am assuming that we are targeting one of each part, 1 to sit deep and 1 to create, but Can or Longstaff, seriously?

AJH

1.) 03 Jan 2020 08:49:19
Grealish or Maddison would be excellent at this point, with McTominay out we'll definitely need someone to fill that void because Matic simply doesn't have the legs anymore. It would certainly be a good sign if we're able to sign a decent number 10, something we've been massively missing. I haven't seen much of Gedson Fernandes though, is he any good anyone?


2.) 03 Jan 2020 09:11:03
Must be true if its on the press.
I don't thin k we can get maddison in jan Leicester are a better team than us currently with much better prospects and a much better manager coach.
Grealish may have to be sold by villa. I like him but he is not at the same level as maddison and it smacks of a desperation signing.
I would be in favour of not spending in jan and waiting until the summer when we might get a better manager.


3.) 03 Jan 2020 09:13:25
We are buying players of the quality Arsenal used to buy. We are not going to win titles if we are buying players like Grealish and Longstaff.


4.) 03 Jan 2020 09:16:41
The amazing scouting network are fans of Longstaff obviously. I've not seen much to male me think wow. Emre is a good player but again, havn't seen much of him in Italy and I don't think he's even in most match day squads.
Maddison is a great player. Head up, passes forward and great technique. I really rate him. I think he's a better player than Grealish.
Said it before, if we are going young and English, Harry Winks would form a solid partnerships with Mctomminay. Both mobile, both can tackle and Winks is a good passer of the ball. The two of them would form a solid base for a creatitive number 10 in front of them.


5.) 03 Jan 2020 09:21:26
No idea Harry. But he is not getting into their team at the moment. If he was that good they would not have to tout him around every club in Europe they would have people going to them looking to buy him i'd imagine.


6.) 03 Jan 2020 10:03:25
It looks like Gedson Fernandez is off to West Ham.


7.) 03 Jan 2020 10:09:30
My thoughts exactly Ken, seems strange that his agent and club are basically begging clubs to take him. It screams bad attitude or lack of ability, neither of which we currently need. I think a lot of people seriously underrate Grealish, when he's played as a number time he looks class. Has more goal involvements than any other English midfielder so far this season. Got a goal in him also, his goals against us and at the weekend were brilliant.


8.) 03 Jan 2020 10:13:15
ed02 already said it would be scrapping the barrel. we must have the worst scouts in the prem.


9.) 03 Jan 2020 10:16:34
AJH, I would go for both Grealish AND Maddison. We are well short of anything attacking or midfield and a bit of competition doesn’t hurt. Hugely unlikely we will land either but it’s not my money so I would say spend what you want!


10.) 03 Jan 2020 11:32:38
Didn’t Longstaff come through Phelan’s academy?
Strange one.


11.) 03 Jan 2020 12:02:20
If its the quality of Longstaff and Emre Can we are linked with for fees . then i'd rather have a punt on Ryan Fraser. out of contract in summer . linked with spurs and Arsenal . handy little player would cost pennies relatively speaking. Emre Can is ok but seems like another stop gap for 30-40 million. Then if a Maddison-Grealish -Fernandes does come in the summer what does that make Emre can another half arsed benchwarmer?


 

 

02 Jan 2020 21:14:26
Jesus, we lost a game, didn’t play well, but the wringing of hands and emotional outbursts today have been stunning.

We know we are inconsistent, we know we have ups and downs, we know we need to strengthen. So why, after every loss, do the usual suspects line up to tell us Ole should be sacked, along with hyperbole and stamping of feet?

I’m not sure anyone thinks Ole is the long term answer, but simply changing Manager is unlikely to bring instant success (as we have already seen) . The age of the team and squad is being reduced, overpaid players who aren’t committed are being released (please God Pogba leaves soon) . We are looking to strengthen and if we buy well then hopefully we will continue to progress.

We will win some more, and we will have some poor performances but knees jerking all over the place don’t help. We are 5th, any semblance of consistency will move us into the top 4. We’ve looked strong against the bigger teams which is encouraging, we need to be more clinical and add some quality.

I took a break From here recently due to the obsessive negativity but every time we lose a game it’s out in full force.

AJH

1.) 02 Jan 2020 21:39:57
Great post Tony 👍.


2.) 02 Jan 2020 21:41:13
AJH

So you acknowledge Ole is not the long term answer but we should keep him in place because getting a new manager won’t bring instant success. Flawed logic.

We should have someone in place who knows the direction, can set a direction, can set a pattern of play. I think most know there won’t be instant success but I don’t hold the opinion that meandering in the wrong direction is the right move just for false stability sake.


3.) 02 Jan 2020 21:54:21
Red man, you're living in the past. Managers rarely dictate the direction of a club, and they certainly don't when the club is as big as ours.

If a big personality such as Mourinho can't dictate the direction of the club then no manager will.

If you're expecting that to happen then you'll be back on here in 18 months declaring the next manager not good enough and needs sacking.

If we sack Ole now then what? You bemoaned the club not doing their due diligence when hiring Ole yet you expect them to pull a rabbit out the hat and find the perfect candidate right now.

On what basis do you believe that the people who hired Moyes, LvG, Jose and Ole will get the next manager right?

If the club are serious about changing the structure, and are looking to bring in a DoF or technical director to work with a manager then shouldn't that DoF be part of the hiring process as they will have to work directly with the manager.

There are deep issues with the depth and quality of our squad, problems a manager can't fix without significant investment in the transfer window or significant time (3-4 years) developing our young players to fill the void.

I understand people aren't happy with the current results, but what is the answer? All people seem to be suggesting is the same old story of sack the manager.

It hasn't worked, it didn't work when we sacked Moyes, it didn't work when we sacked LvG and it doesn't appear to be working after we sacked Jose.

So just why do you think it will work this time?


4.) 02 Jan 2020 22:05:02
Red Man, that’s not what I said, I don’t have an answer. It’s the same people posting the same things after every loss that is wearing. Like it or not, it seems he is here for the season so stamping feet and pouting lips isn’t going to achieve anything.

LVG didn’t work, Jose didn’t work (I know you disagree), the squad is being reshaped and like it or not, there will be a lot of ups and downs.


5.) 02 Jan 2020 22:07:24
Ajh you didn't take a break from the negativity when a previous manager needed firing in fact you often stoked it and you were very vocal about your thoughts.
Redman just doing likewise now.
Not one poster that comes on here can moan about repetition they don't like, as all of us you included bang our particular drum at any given time.
I very much include myself in that too AJH.
I don't like watching martial and all i see is the negatives about him so i tent to be negative about him. But at least i'm consistent.
Others were like that about zlatan.
You are about pogba
Redman and others are about ole.
I think its fair to say he has a bee in his bonnet😂
Some had a bee in their bonnet about jose and wete just as vocal and called him worse than a failed cardiff manager .
Others take a break too when they don't like what their reading can't say it ever bothers me.
Ive no problem with any opinion i have being proved wrong over time or indeed changing my opinion over time. If ole gets it right and we start improving and challenging for a league title in 18 months then ill be fist to say i got it wrong until then we can expect calls for his sacking daily.
Im resigned to him seeing out the season but i wouldn't be in favour of that decision unless the club have a clear plan on replacing him in the summer.


6.) 02 Jan 2020 22:12:17
Your right, ole will be here till May at least. Results will be up and down and we will be inconsistent. there's nothing we can do as fans so is there any point making ourselves miserable over it? The decisions will be made one way or another and they won't be based on what we think.

{Ed047's Note - I think that’s what makes people the most miserable, the fact they can’t do anything about it mate.


7.) 02 Jan 2020 22:14:51
Shappy

I didn’t ask for Mourinho’s sacking, when nearly everyone else was screaming for his head, including you. So your assertion on me about 18 months time is yet again incorrect.

Sticking with the wrong manager because of an emotional connection is also not going to work. There are several managers, immediately available who offer far better options for the club. Yes there are other areas in the club to fix but get a better qualified manager instead of continuing with the emotional roller coaster.


8.) 02 Jan 2020 22:25:44
To eds point, I think that's why so many do come on here to vent, it's our only platform to outwardly voice our discontent. We know we can do nothing and that breeds anger at times which spills out.

{Ed047's Note - that’s us human beings 🤷‍♂️


9.) 02 Jan 2020 22:38:05
Shappy, nobody is asking them to pull any rabbits out of their hats. Just get in a proper coach, that's it. Ole is a complete amateur.

You wrote another long post on the discussions bemoaning player choice, having off days etc etc, every excuse for a manager that should be nowhere near this club.

A win rate of something like 30%, 21 games, 7 draws and 6 losses and none of it is his fault going by your posts.

It would've been great if you had put the same faith in Jose, hypocritical stuff yet again from you.


10.) 02 Jan 2020 22:40:29
Red man, no one would ever believe you would call for the sacking of Saint Jose.

The man could do no wrong in your eyes. Personally I feel that your bitterness of José's sacking plays a large part in your spitefulness towards Ole.

But just remember, Jose is the failed Chelsea manager (twice), the failed Real Madrid manager and the failed United manager.


11.) 02 Jan 2020 22:48:43
I agree NI .
Anybody can give their opinion as often as they like. Just Passover what you don't want to read.
Everyone of us live in a glass house in that regard so can't afford to throw too many stones.


12.) 02 Jan 2020 22:54:42
That was what made me laugh earlier, somebody actually posted once again saying I’m the reason why we aren’t very good, because I’m accepting mediocrity, like anything I say or we say on here makes any difference. The hyperbole and I told you so after every defeat is crazy, even one of the Ed’s joins in mocking me whenever I try and suggest that there are positives. 2 defeats in 9 games, 5 points off top 4 and in every cup comp and people are so spoilt they think the season is over.


13.) 02 Jan 2020 23:00:14
Shappy your bitterness towards jose is clouding your judgement on ole imo.


14.) 02 Jan 2020 23:00:53
Tony, you and Shappy post the same long winded posts arguing the sacking of Ole as much as us fans who think he is out of his depth. None of us a reinventing the wheel with our posts.

The simple fact is, if Ole was doing his job well then we wouldn't be on here every freak pissed off. He is the manager of Manchester United. The list of teams that have beaten us since he took over are criminal. He has a worst record that Moyes who lasted 7 months. We're worse off in the league than when we sacked Jose.

I get all your points. Constant upheaval is never productive. But the reason a part of the fan base come on here constantly and have a Go, is because there are a lot of performances that are unacceptable.

What a competent manager would bring would be consistency. We would have direction. Results would improve, morale would improve. Less focus on the board if on the pitch was better.

Just because the last manager didn't work doesn't mean we should let a poor one keep his job.


15.) 02 Jan 2020 23:03:22
He won the league with Chelsea he won the league with madrid and wad the most successful united massager since fergie too shappy.
Was raneri a failure at Leicester because he couldn't repeat his heroics and got fired.
Some of the points you make are nonsensical and totally brought up on complete bias or just completely made up.


16.) 02 Jan 2020 23:13:12
What are you on about shappy.


17.) 02 Jan 2020 23:30:03
What's the saying? Lunacy is making the same decision time and time again expecting a different result.

You lot keep buying shiny new expensive players (pogba, zlatan Sanchez McGuire) .2nd highest spenders over both 5 and 10 years.

You change manager on average every 18/ 20 months since fergie and nothing changes.

Owners, directors however keep on grinding the money mill.

FSG are the reason LFC are where we are at the moment, Klopp and the squad are all a result of them, mistakes were made early doors but they learnt from them.


18.) 02 Jan 2020 23:33:31
the failed one shappy as you say has won more than the failed cardif manager.


19.) 03 Jan 2020 00:38:22
Tony, I just don't understand why people want to complain about posters making their views heard. If you don't like a post, don't read it. But to tell us that you're bored of reading posts while you post stuff, is taking the proverbial.
I've always said, everyone has the right to write what they want as often as they want. And I'd you don't like it, then don't read it.


20.) 03 Jan 2020 04:25:44
Sacking the manager is not the answer.

Fix the structure of the club. Full stop.

Else the same cycle will continue with a new manager.
Same people will keep whining, moaning with knee jerk reaction after every game.


21.) 03 Jan 2020 06:37:09
Shappy tries so hard to defend Ole that he hits out at other managers. Mourinho’s trophies tell a totally different story to Ole’s but it doesn’t fit his narrative and as can be observed when he is on the losing side of an argument Shappy hits out spitefully.

The longer this farce, this emotionally driven support of the manager, who has no credentials, continues the worse the damage.


22.) 03 Jan 2020 06:46:03
Ken your bitterness towards shappy is clouding your judgement on Ole imo 😂😂😂.


23.) 03 Jan 2020 06:55:29
United had never gone 500 minutes without scoring from open play until. Solskjaer.
United have never gathered under 30 points in the PL era by Boxing Day until. Solskjaer.
United had won their last 4 matches to open a new calendar year until. Solskjaer.
Since getting the job full-time, Ole Gunnar Solskajer's win rate at Manchester United is just 29.5%. (What was Mourinho’s Shappy? )

Another day has gone by where the club showed indecision.


24.) 03 Jan 2020 06:56:25
Mumbles, I am ambivalent about Ole and have said several times I don’t think he is the answer. However, he is being given time to reshape the squad, reduce the age, bring through youngsters. I’m not convinced ‘top’ Managers would do that, they would chase instant success with big signings and we have seen that fail continually for the last few years.

People were taking about relegation a few weeks ago, then we beat Spurs and City and people started being positive, a couple of bad games and we’re all doomed.

My wider point is like it or not it looks like we are stuck with it this year so I don’t see the need for continual ‘sack Ole’ posts. That doesn’t mean I think he’s the right guy, it means I’ve accepted it’s not going to change any time soon.

The club needs a lot or restructuring but it would be good for Ole to do a couple of things:

1. Stop being so laid back after defeats and poor performances, show some passion and anger.
2. Stop bigging up Pogba, preferably sell him this window.
3. Demand midfield reinforcements this window.


25.) 03 Jan 2020 07:04:45
Shappy it’s very well known your dislike of Jose clouded your view of him whilst he was here. As people have said, he is our most successful manager since fergie. But now it’s not ok to criticise your darling Ole? I seem to remember you got very personally when it came to Jose. I don’t think Red man has said anything that hasn’t been true. You can wish ole to be a success but when someone hasn’t got it, they simply haven’t got it.


26.) 03 Jan 2020 07:06:24
lol Rossi.


27.) 03 Jan 2020 08:03:19
It says it all when a Scouser comes on the United page and talks more sense than half the United fans.

At this rate the club will need to be rebranded as Manchester Divided.

Also I'm not sure how my post was spiteful? All I did was point out how silly it is to refer to any manager as the failed one, as nearly all managers have been sacked at some point so have at one time been a failure, as no one gets sacked for succeeding.

My defence of Ole over the last couple of months has subtly changed although most people tend to see the name of the poster and then read what they expect to read rather than what is being written.

My original hope was that Ole could learn on the job and develop. Sadly that doesn't appear to be happening, or at least not quickly enough. I'm resigned to the fact that Ole will be sacked and when it does happen his results will make it impossible to argue that it was the wrong decision.

My defence of Ole if you want to call it that over the last couple of months haven't been based around him being good enough, but about the timing and longer term planning that needs to be considered around moving him on.

We have made this mistake several times before in the recent past. If/ when we sack Ole who takes over? What is the longer term plan? What structure will the club have? How will the new manager fit into that?

Most fans argument for sacking Ole right away is entirely based on short term up turn in results.

That short term vision put us in this situation and it won't get us out of it.

Sacking Ole is pointless without a longer term plan/ strategy. We will just be cementing the idea that we are a club in disarray who sack managers the moment things get rocky. I'm sure that will make us a very attractive proposition for top managers.


28.) 03 Jan 2020 09:02:11
Shappy time will prove you wrong.


 

 

01 Jan 2020 19:11:53
Pogba needs to be sold, today, tomorrow, as soon as is humanly possible, or inhumanely if necessary. His attitude is a joke and our club is bigger than any 1 player, particularly a jumped up wannabe with an over inflated ego. If he is unwilling to play then we should fine him, and fine him again, and fine him again.

Our club is becoming an embarrassment, a lack of leadership and direction is allowing Raiola to pontificate and when we have to listen to his ramblings then we know there are serious issues. But whatever the issues. A player cannot be allowed to behave this way. I don’t care what excuses we hear, Pogba out, now.

AJH

{Ed047's Note - he’s a shocker AJH and why the club is saying he’s not going is beyond me.


1.) 01 Jan 2020 19:23:20
Should have sold him in the summer.


His agent is worse. constantly talking. Making sly digs.


Professionally those 2 are a joke.


I wouldn't go anywhere near his players in future.


2.) 01 Jan 2020 19:32:47
DEVIL BE GONE! his conduct this last year has been atrocious and right now he thinks he is bigger than the club. Why the club is letting this little scrote get away with this is beyond me, it has to stop now.


3.) 01 Jan 2020 19:42:51
The club are letting him do it for one reason. Money. He is our most marketable asset, so woody is quite content to let him act the twat as long as he keeps bringing in the cash. The club needs to grow a set and ship him out ASAP.

{Ed002's Note - What cash do you think Pogba brings in?}


4.) 01 Jan 2020 19:46:06
AJH

I said Pogba should have been gone last summer but who kept him? Was it our wish washy manager or the decision makers who didn’t want to lose face? Mourinho wanted him out but the club didn’t support him.


5.) 01 Jan 2020 19:56:23
Is pogba not part of our marketing strategy in terms of posters, advertising etc also isn't he big in the middle East etc. I meant he is a big part of the clubs global appeal. Am I totally wrong in my thinking?

{Ed002's Note - So where does he bring in money to the club?}


6.) 01 Jan 2020 20:02:48
I'm for one am glad we didn't sign Haaland.
I know it doesn't work like this, but I'd take hakimi or odegaard or isco or a similar level real Madrid player in exchange for him and some money.
No James Rodriguez crap.


7.) 01 Jan 2020 20:53:01
He doesn't directly but my point is that the club don't have any1 to replace him as a global icon for the clubs sponsors etc. Ed02 if it were up to u what would u do with him?

{Ed002's Note - I would sell him and replace him with Sauk.}


8.) 01 Jan 2020 21:13:17
Not a pogba fan the way he conducts his business and the contempt he has for club is a disgrace.

But you can't blame him for wanting out. We are terrible atm and he wants to win trophies and he's not going to do it at united.

{Ed047's Note - so that stops him trying, making an effort keeping his head down and working hard for his club. 🤷‍♂️


9.) 01 Jan 2020 21:21:36
Well ed047 what does that say about the club or solsjkaer that they put up with him. They are a joke imo. And worse we won't replace him.

{Ed047's Note - they have to Roy, he’s holding you back in my honest opinion.

The club is totally wrong to do anything different.


10.) 01 Jan 2020 21:30:37
Some cried on here about jose not upholding the standards and ethics of the club. Thise same people stand by pogba today.
Complete and utter double standards.
Jose had to go for a whole host of reasons pogba has to go for many of the same reasons.
He does not want to be a player for the club his value is diminishing his impact and the circus that surrounds him is counter productive.


11.) 01 Jan 2020 22:15:03
Ramsey wanted out of arsenal but he still gave 10000 percent until he did leave.

{Ed047's Note - spot on Bolger and that’s what Pogba should be doing


12.) 01 Jan 2020 22:18:15
Ed002 did you mean saul in the reply above?

{Ed002's Note - I did Ken.}


13.) 01 Jan 2020 23:51:47
Not sure money would be enough to make Saul give up Madrid for this awful place.


14.) 02 Jan 2020 10:49:58
Ed002. them i agree totally😂😂.

I lost my job this month, last week I heard that an old work colleague had passed away. I shared this with another ex colleague who told me she was nursing her Mother through end of life care, and had just been told her 24 year old stepson has stage 4 cancer.

Football is just a game, passions run high, we love out club but in the big scheme of things there are far more important things to worry about.

Have a great Christmas, hug your loved ones, and find time to think of those less fortunate or who don’t have loved ones. Love to all. x.

AJH

{Ed047's Note - lost one of my best mates to cancer 5 days ago and there are definitely more important things to worry about. There but by the grace of god go all of us.

Have a great Christmas and good luck for next year AJH. Life is far too short.


1.) 24 Dec 2019 22:37:18
Sorry to hear about you loosing your job ajh. Like you pointed out much more to life than just football. We take for granted for what we have.
I hope you find new employment soon. Happy Christmas to you All.
NADOLG LLAWEN.


2.) 24 Dec 2019 22:45:33
I’m so sorry to hear that AJH and Ed.

Hope you both have an amazing Christmas!

I’ll pour one for you tonight 👍🏽.

{Ed047's Note - thanks Amz and you too.


3.) 24 Dec 2019 23:30:03
So sorry to hear that and I am sure things will look up for you soon and Merry Xmas to everyone.


4.) 24 Dec 2019 23:33:20
I know we're all strangers on here, but I genuinely wish you all the best, Tony. Unfortunately we're getting to that age now, where our loved ones are passing on. Coming from a big, tight-knit family, this year has been a hard one, personally. It's why I've said on here a few times, there's more important things than the outcome of 22 men kicking a ball round a field.

On a personal note, I hope all those in our emergency services who are working tomorrow, get back to their families safe and sound.

Happy Xmas, guys.


5.) 25 Dec 2019 01:13:15
Merry Christmas lads.

My condolences to both of you ajh and ed. Merry Christmas to all on this site.


7.) 25 Dec 2019 05:13:21
Never a true word spoken. Enjoy those you've got and be thankful.

Thanks to everyone on the site, Ed's and posters alike.


8.) 25 Dec 2019 06:05:00
AJH,

Sorry to hear of your losses and it is particularly sad to hear of someone at 24 in that situation. I lost both my parents and one of my brothers many many years ago, my remaining brother is in a bad way with Alzheimer’s. Also lost several of my friends this last year. As we get older it seems it moves from four weddings and a funeral to four funerals and a wedding.

Luckily I have a great wife and we have a family Christmas but today my thoughts and prayers always go out to those less fortunate. I have also had several unemployed Christmases (both times made redundant at the end of November) and found work in the New Year and am sure you will.
Have a Happy Christmas and if I could help you find work I would. Pity we can’t connect on LinkedIn. All the best.


9.) 25 Dec 2019 08:41:09
Thanks everyone, and sorry to hear of your losses. I lost one of my best friends when I was 32 and he was 42 and it brought home to me the fragility of life. I can get a bit too excited sometimes but I long ago realised that life is for living and enjoying, negativity and anger are just destructive emotions that get in the way.

I have a family Christmas, wife and 2 kids, my parents, and my wife’s Mother (her father died 3 years ago) and I’ll be cooking for us all for about the 15th consecutive year. There will be laughter, tears, and reflections.

We may disagree sometimes (or a lot of the time) but I think we all want the same thing, even Jaime!

Enjoy the festivities, here’s to a glorious 2020.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed for a better 2020 for you mate.}


10.) 25 Dec 2019 10:39:15
AJH and Ed. Sincere condolences must be really difficult for you to feel happy right now. Without meaning to sound preaching would like to tell you a story I heard. Bit cheesy but the message can give us all hope.

A man died and went upstairs where he was told he had to be judged about how he spent his life on earth to determine if he would then live in heaven or be sent to hell.

He was directed along a winding road. As he walked a big lorry with pikes of bags on passed. A little later a van with bags in passed. Just as he got to the court house a man on a bicycle with one bag rushed past.

Inside the court were a huge old fashioned set of weighing scales. On one pan all the bags from the lorry were emptied. The pan hit the floor. Then in the other pan the bags from the van. Nowhere near as many from the lorry but the scales started to almost balance. Then the bicycle man put on with the van bags his one little bag and miraculously the pans were exactly level.

The judge explained. In the lorry bags were all the bad things you did. In the van bags all the good. And in the bicycle bag was all the sad things and hard times you suffered on earth.

To which the man replied. God why didn't you give me hard times!


Moral of the story is that we never see the bigger picture and nobody can say why things happen. But have confidence in that just like as sure as day follows night there will be light in your lives.

{Ed047's Note - thank you mate, love the story, have a great one. 😊


11.) 25 Dec 2019 11:32:38
Condolences to you Tony and Ed. This site is like a family, a quirky and sometimes volatile family, but a beautiful one nonetheless. We may argue and debate till the cows come home about United, but at the end of the day it’s only a miniscule part of our lives. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas surrounded by their loved ones, and that 2020 is a cracking year full of love, joy and success. Many thanks to all the eds who have made this site what it is.

{Ed047's Note - thanks Park and that’s all very true, genuinely hope you all have a great Christmas and a fantastic 2020 with maybe positive things for both United and Arsenal as a little bonus.


12.) 25 Dec 2019 18:57:52
Tony, sorry to hear of your misfortune and losses. Hope Christmas brings you happiness and hope as it does for us all. Keep your chin up and things will get better.
In the meantime, hope the Reds can cheer you up. We're not the best at the moment but life goes round in circles and we'll soon be challenging and keeping us all happy.
And a big thank you to all the Eds for the fantastic work they do. Merry Christmas to all.


13.) 26 Dec 2019 12:18:54
AJH,

Its awful to hear about the events in your life lately with you friends and family, we all wish you the best.

I haven't left a comment on this site for a good while but I really want to try and help you find employment again.

Where are you from? Its a longshot but I may be able to help out somehow.

I hope your Christmas has bought some smiles to you and your family this year.


 

 

23 Dec 2019 05:37:39
Emotions are running high as would be expected after such an abject performance. Playing against the worst team in the league we simply didn’t show up, didn’t press, didn’t harrie, didn’t have energy, a very flat and poor performance. However, the ‘we are an average team’, ‘our players are poor’, and ‘Ole out’ refrains are perhaps not accurate.

We play well against the top teams, we are right up there in the top 6 league and the displays against Spurs and City show what we are capable of. Yet put us up against an ‘average’ team and we look bereft of ideas. But is that true? The biggest difference I have seen in games against top vs ‘average’ teams is one of application, energy, passion, and commitment. That isn’t about physical attributes, or playing badly, or ability, that is a mental issue that needs to be urgently addressed. Against City we pressed them, chased them, broke at pace, and left them floundering for the first 45 minutes. Liverpool struggled against us, the only team who has taken points off them this season. Yet against Bournemouth we looked disinterested and lethargic, same today. These are the same players, this is not about quality, this is about mentality.

Is this down to Ole? Probably. Did Jose have the same issue? Yes he did. Do I have any idea how to solve it? Absolutely not.

Ole has shown himself to be tactically astute on occasions, but then against Watford (and other lower teams) he seems to have no idea how to change things. I love the average age of the team. I love that Lukaku and Sanchez have left, I love watching us when we are on fire, but the inconsistency is driving me potty.

DDG is on borrowed time for me, this is the second season when he has looked decidedly dodgy. Lindelof is unconvincing, Maguire has not had the impact we hoped he would (has he had any impact? ), James drifts in and out of games, Jesse has energy but not much else, and Martial is a passenger for 95% of the time.

4th place is there for the taking, even 3rd in what is a poor league with only 2 stand out teams. That means we should be able to experiment and integrate some youth whilst still competing yet we look bereft of ideas against anyone other than the top 6.

I’m at a loss, I think this team is good enough to be 3rd but inconsistency around attitude and commitment is killing us.

AJH

{Ed047's Note - seriously, you guys can write all the long stories you like but you are a poor team.

I don’t speak from strength as an Arsenal supporter but how many excuses are you going to make about this side.

I seriously would want but maybe two of them at a push in my side.

When Arsenal were languishing this far behind you when you were last winning titles did you think no actually they are quality, our usual 2 players away from being great, no I’m sure you didn’t.

The squad is just so poor AJH, miles away with a hopeless manager who gets it right on occasion as have other mid table managers.

We are both as sorrowfully bad as each other and you can big up players after a decent game or constantly believe someone like Martial is going to do it, but it’s not happening.


1.) 23 Dec 2019 06:27:50
I put it down to attitude. I think there's to many who think there to good and when they play lesser teams they think they don't have to turn up, yet when you play the bigger teams they perform well.


2.) 23 Dec 2019 06:58:12
The club needs to stop this utter baloney of a culture reset under this Manager. We are heading in a direction that no one knows whether it will be the right one. We are letting a totally failed manager give direction to one of the worlds biggest clubs, then wonder why yesterday happened. Reset is needed, start by reviewing the present direction and immediately make logical not sentimental decisions over the capabilities of the tactically inept manager.


3.) 23 Dec 2019 07:33:54
OLE has no clue when it comes to trying something different, he just can't get over 4-2-3-1. One-dimensional approach won't last long with average players at his helm, Pogba is the only world class talent we have who showed that last night and he deserves to leave and play for a better club (slate him as much as you want but he is World Class) .


4.) 23 Dec 2019 08:17:36
I didn't get the chance the see the game yesterday as I'm away for a couple of weeks, so I followed the BBC text commentary, the amount of comments about the poor quality of the passing was overwhelming. These are technical basics. I saw an interview recently, I can't remember from who, but they mentioned that football basics are not covered in training as they are meant to be a given. We have players who for some reason are very short on the basic technical aspects of football. After the Everton game Old said he instructed the players to play with pace, one or two touches then pass, but they lingered on the ball, he believes it's about time and the players learning, but I just think they do not have the ability to play that way consistently. The big side performances seem to see players pushing beyond (their passing is still rather poor, but they show more fight) .

Liverpool fan in peace guys. Really don't know where you guys get this world class tag for pogba from. From outside looking in he seems to be the root of the problem at Manchester United. Both he and his agent have on more than one occasion disrespected your club. He has created a divide in the playing staff which can be traced back to Jose's time. Players like mctominay etc might never had his ability but you can rest assure he will leave everything he has out on the pitch. How often has the world class pogba done this? . To me a world class player rallies the troops when things are down or who grabs a game by the scruff of the neck when its slipping away from you. Pogba might have world class ability but he rarely brings it for Manchester United. Come to think about i actually don't think he ever wanted a return to United and when he didn't get his move to madrid he seen the chance of a big payday.

Redmick. Most don't think he is world class. Just the odd one.

Ed, I did point out half of our first team aren’t doing it right now. Irrespective of how good or bad we are, the difference in effort and application is unacceptable.

Lingard is world class :)

I’m not arrogant Danny. Whatever our current travails, we pay well, we remain one of the biggest names, we will still attract players. There have always been players who didn’t want to play for us, I’m just getting bored of the ‘step down’ jibe.

If players are choosing a club based on the cup they are in then they are welcome to go where they wish. If Sanchez thinks United is a step down from Dortmund then his head needs a wobble.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe “Sanchez” realises it is a club run by amateurs with a coach who is not up to the job?}

Sounds like sulking. They can see others getting game time and are throwing their toys out. If they were contributing then they would be playing more, like Williams, or Greenwood. Ole seems obsessed with youth so if they were showing him anything he would be getting them on the pitch, so they clearly aren’t doing enough.

Ive they to see him do anything to make me take notice. Gomes had some nice touches, Garner can find a pass, Greenwood is scoring, obviously Williams has been a revelation, but Chong has been forgettable every time I’ve seen him. They can’t all make it.

So far, only 4 teams have conceded fewer goals. Defence isn’t the problem, scoring goals has been the problem.

It gives me the impression people need to get a grip. It’s like a vortex of doom with poster after poster adding even more soon and gloom. We know things are not right but blimey, some people need to lighten up. Just my option but all opinions are valid eh ken.

Lingard is 27, he should be one of the players taking a lead role in fixing this mess but he disappears. It smacks of a player not prepared to put the hard yards in and looking for a way out, and if he has been getting some stick from Ole then maybe he thinks he’s better than he is.

Lingard has had constant stock on here so the reaction tonGDS’s post is laughable. If anyone wants to leave then my vie is also off you go.

Stevie, you’re a trooper, but I fear you cannot hold back the tide.

Of course it's happening, it just doesn't need to be written down every bloody day.
