A right back called Jonathan Clauss being linked.


{Ed002's Note - Jonathan Clauss (RWB) was recommended to Chelsea in early 2021 after a scout attended a game to watch another player. Sevilla had a low offer turned down by Lens last summer and interest moved elsewhere. Atletico Madrid have him on a list as an alternative to more expensive options. Manchester United have asked after availability. Risk is that he moves to be cover he could lose out on the France squad and this make the option of a move to Marseille viable.}

1.) 18 Jul 2022 16:37:27
What's his release clauss?

2.) 18 Jul 2022 16:42:21
If he isn't good enough to start ahead of AWB/ Dalot, there isn't much chance of France selecting him is there!



07 Jul 2022 20:02:45
New name tonight is Brian Brobbey at Leipzig. Reports from Germany saying we are interested. Could be an easy link as he played under ten hag and with the Ronaldo situation we need a striker.

We did try and get him a few years ago before he signed a pro deal at Ajax apparently.


1.) 07 Jul 2022 22:30:01
You've picked this up wrong, we're actually in for Mr Blobby. He and Maguire will coordinate beautifully together.

2.) 08 Jul 2022 09:02:17
Some times I'd rather have Mr Blobby at CB than Maguire?

3.) 08 Jul 2022 10:26:46

4.) 08 Jul 2022 17:35:43
We have Mr Blobby at Left back.



11 May 2022 22:08:45
Huge rumours that Frenkie De Jong is coming. The source is Gerard Romero and he is meant to be very reliable for Barcelona news.


1.) 11 May 2022 22:17:57
Just saw something on Instagram, I think he's a good box to box midfielder.

2.) 12 May 2022 07:08:25
Twitter saying interest is there from both Manchester clubs but apparently United offered instalments, and Barcelona want £60/ 70m upfront because of finances.

No Champs League a problem too and apparently FDJ loves Barca. Xavi will discuss it at end of season.

Will basically come down to what the player wants to di and whether ETH can persuade him to buy into the United project or not.

(Apologies for summarising Twitter: no real quality info until Ed002 speaks)

3.) 12 May 2022 10:23:52
More updates on social media this morning - FDJ looking increasingly less likely…

He wants CL and more interested in football achievement than money and his relationship with ETH.

Think we’re going to have to get used to seeing big names going elsewhere this Summer (can see City getting De Jong and Liverpool Tchouameni) .

Might force us to focus on better recruitment of emerging players who haven’t hit their potential yet then start attracting big names again once we hopefully qualify for CL again.

Thus, despite excitement of being linked to biggest names, think we just need to not buy into the dream signings and be more pragmatic instead.

So long as they buy any over the hill stars again!

4.) 12 May 2022 11:59:54
Totally agree with this.



26 Apr 2022 11:30:46
Ed do you know if we hold any interest in Djed Spence? I think he is on loan at Forest. Saw some reports this morning and I was wondering if there were anything in them.

He looked good in the game against Arsenal in the FA Cup but that is a very small sample to judge a player on.


{Ed002's Note - Djed Spence (RB) sustained interest from Everton has likely ended. Arsenal see him as an option at RB. A wildcard option for Roma after Mr Mourinho showed previous interest at Spurs, where interest may persist with a senior scout. Leicester, Brentford, Bayern Munich and Southampton have enquired. Interest of Norwich, West Ham and Leicester has gone. }

1.) 26 Apr 2022 13:10:00
has anyone shown interest in schlotterbeck?

{Ed002's Note - Lots.}

2.) 26 Apr 2022 13:12:06
Thanks Ed.

3.) 26 Apr 2022 13:54:02
sorry ed ment to ask if united is one of them.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

4.) 26 Apr 2022 14:55:32
ok thanks for the info ed.

5.) 26 Apr 2022 16:20:44
I saw somewhere shclotterbeck was most likley heading to Dortmund but i don't remember where i saw it.



14 Apr 2022 10:59:37
We are now being linked to Nkunku from Leipzig. Seems to have scored a lot of goals this season.


1.) 14 Apr 2022 12:24:04
He looks to ebay good player and would certainly improve our first 11.

2.) 14 Apr 2022 13:25:32
Do we have to bid for him or does he have a buy it now price?

3.) 14 Apr 2022 14:29:46
Dave ?.

4.) 14 Apr 2022 15:40:28
Caolan, Nkunku looks a great player without a shadow of a doubt. He's been one of the best players in the Bundesliga over the past two seasons.

However, I'm not sure exactly where he fits into this United line up.

He plays mostly from the left, with us currently having Sancho, Rashford, Elanga, Garnacho and Shoretire all playing best from that position.

He can also play as a false 9 or No.10. Which puts him in competition with Bruno and Donny who can both play both positions. Although Nkunku can play false 9 better than both in all fairness.

Also whenever Nkunku has played as a false 9 this season (15 games, 9 goals, 7 assists phenomenal form) it has been as part of a front two.

Very good player no doubt, but I'm not quite sure where or how he fits at United either with the player we have or any of the systems EtH typically plays.

Tried to hold off a bit on an immediate reaction to yesterday. Obviously very disappointed, but I tell you what is worse, the hours after the game. Bidding for Arnoutovic- a horrible personality and no one I would want near the dressing room.
Rabiot- another person who causes problems where he goes and has done nothing for the last 3 years in the game. Yes an upgrade on McTominay, but who isn't.

Ten Hag said he wants the right people in the dressing room, yet here we are now going around the bargain basement looking for cut price deals in a panic.

I will always try and be positive about my club, call it delusion etc but I can't help it. We have been told by Richard Arnold and Murtough they are working tirelessly to deliver what Ten Hag needs to back him and get us back to the top. Those two names above don't do that, it would just be two more mistakes we can't sell on in a year or two. I am desperate to see Ten Hag do well, I think he is a great coach with good ideas and I think he has the character to make something of us. However, he is not a magician, he can't turn water into wine and he can't turn McTominay and Fred into Xavi and Iniesta.

We simply don't have the bottle to pay up for Seskos (he seems the main ST target), we haven't sorted De Jong. He wanted a right back and probably at least a couple of midfielders. We won't pay up for Antony. The club complain about being over charged, but we are going into every negotiation weak. Clubs know we aren't good enough and when we get desperate we just throw money at subpar players. This will not change under current ownership, nor do I think we actually have the money.

I would like to end on a slight positive, I thought second half Eriksen was decent and really drove us on a bit.

Anyway, enjoy your day fellas.


1.) 08 Aug 2022 10:30:34
We are in for Rabiot.
Back to cheap, players that top clubs want to get rid of transfers.

Looking like we'll sign for 3-4 players by spending 40-50m and huge wages.

This is what Arnold was talking about.

2.) 08 Aug 2022 10:51:43
The thing is Rohan over the past few years the club have been linked to a lot of younger talents and identified them, only to not get anything done in terms of recruiting them. Look at Caciedo yesterday, he was excellent and they did not miss Bissouma at all. We could have picked him up for £5m.

We turned down Seskos for £3m apparently and now are baulking at paying £50m. I think there is some brains somewhere at the club, but they are being overruled by those above them, and well the less said there the better.

3.) 08 Aug 2022 11:01:38
It’s not so much the money it’s the fact there are players out there, that would improve and fit ten hags style but instead like his predecessors he is being shafted.

4.) 08 Aug 2022 11:05:37
Any truth in the Rabiot deal Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Adrian Rabiot (CM) Juventus are looking to replace their midfield misfits (Arthur, McKennie, Ramsey and Rabiot) before the start of the season and with Bentancur gone have a lot to do. They are looking to fund replacements they have already identified. Rabiot will, like every other player, be offered to Newcastle. A third party has been instructed to find him a new home and he can be used in part exchanges. He has been offered to Chelsea as part of a deal for any of several Chelsea players Juventus are interested in, but Chelsea want to keep transfers as clean as possible but may make a cash offer. With Manchester United struggling to find midfield players, he becomes a squad option. A return to PSG is seen as an option but PSG have preferred targets. Monaco is a good option. Approaches have been made to Barcelona - but they will look to others, and Arsenal who have a much preferred target. Everton, Newcastle and Spurs may provide unlikely options.}

5.) 08 Aug 2022 11:19:55
Thank you Ed.



04 Aug 2022 18:55:29
If anyones interested in the academy etc you Hansen-Aaoren has stayed with the first team all week.




04 Aug 2022 14:17:37
Martial out injured for the first game.

I hope Ten Hag is bold and maybe starts garnacho wide and Rashford down the middle. I don't think Ronaldo should walk back into the side, and I hope he doesn't.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 14:47:58
What other option is there?

Rashford is rebuilding his confidence on the wing. You could try Bruno as a false 9, but they haven’t played that system.

The reality is that club has chosen to go into the new season with 2 strikers - one who wants to leave and one that was loaned out last season.

2.) 04 Aug 2022 15:07:55
Just highlights the shocking lack of depth.
The decision makers are already adding pressure on Ten Hag with lack of decisiveness in the transfer market.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 14:53:11
It has to be CR7 I reckon, unless ten Hag throws a curveball and starts Garnacho on the left and Rash up top.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 15:37:41
Elanga on the left and rashford up top.

Or Amad up top.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 15:45:45
Absolute joke if it’s cr7, get rid! He doesn’t want to be there and on top of that he was absolute garbage Sunday! Play Garnacheo, erikson and Bruno, anyone but him!

6.) 04 Aug 2022 15:48:24
You can not play Ronaldo, no matter who is unavailable.

ETH in charge? We will see.

7.) 04 Aug 2022 15:52:23
Angel if I had my way ronaldo would be training with the academy until a he presents his exit to the club.

The pogba circus has well and truly been replaced.

8.) 04 Aug 2022 16:15:49
We shall see this weekend if he does play and scores the winner. How many of you will celebrate and how many will moan.

9.) 04 Aug 2022 16:27:00
Heard Ronaldo did a cheeky tackle on Martial’s hamstring during training.

Shaw sprinted over when medic shouted out injury to ETH.

10.) 04 Aug 2022 16:44:17
Ronaldo hattrick incoming.

Wallace I don't know if you're joking or not but he apparently injured himself during the game last week.

11.) 04 Aug 2022 16:49:09
I’m here all week.

12.) 04 Aug 2022 17:06:29
I don't care who plays as long as we win.
Ronaldo should be gone imo but no offers in.
@UA and mumbles that would be funny?
1 poster has decided that if ronaldo plays eth is not in charge? with that sort of logic you can't win bring back Jamie I say as he has more nouse and maturity than many he left behind on these pages.
Eth will do what's best for the team i would not like to see ronaldo play but if that's what he decides he is in charge and he will be doing it for the best.
He had stated ronaldo won't start prior to martial injury so maybe he is only in charge if everyone is fit and not in charge if we have injuries ??.

13.) 04 Aug 2022 17:21:44
I will celebrate if he scores because I support the club and they could win.

That doesn’t change the fact he’s a petulant child.

14.) 04 Aug 2022 17:39:40
Bang on caolan. But if that happens we'll need to find the man in charge so we can thank him???.

15.) 04 Aug 2022 17:58:45
ken, bring back jamie ?. Stop it you’re cracking me up ?.

16.) 04 Aug 2022 18:11:29
Fizz honestly mate I'd rather push his pram than some of the others.
In 6 months time I might have a different view but I'm trying to remain positive because unlike some I'm waiting to see how people perform before I form an opinion.

17.) 04 Aug 2022 19:19:27
Forgot to mention Norwegian clown in that last post Ken ?.



30 Jul 2022 19:55:18
Missed the game today and will likely miss the game tomorrow as away with the kids.

Anyone impress, how did we play? Obviously seen the end of the world posts and that we still need another 5-6 (that part not wrong but itll come in time. ) .


1.) 30 Jul 2022 20:56:59
Played alright in spells. We were competitive throughout. Quite wasteful in the final third. Rashford and Martial running down blind alleys most of the game. Just lacked that spark in the final pass.

Maguire did well as did Malacia. Fred and McTominay did ok but wasted some good possession at times. Bruno was underwhelming. Eriksen had a few nice moments when he came on. Some decent corners and nearly a lovely ball that was an inch away from Elanga heading it in.

Felix scored a nice goal at the end but we were well worth a draw in my opinion.

The game was a feisty one even for a friendly.

I think the lessons Ten Hag will learn is that Rashford and Martial won't be reliable throughout a season. We need reinforcements up top. When they're on form they're great but there will be plenty of games that pass them by.

2.) 30 Jul 2022 21:31:12
Thanks mumbles! Let’s hope something in the seskos rumours.

3.) 31 Jul 2022 00:28:23
Coalan, it's not an end of world, but realty says that if we don't strengthen in midfield and centre attack and even a right back, then, we'll be 6th at best.

4.) 31 Jul 2022 06:00:53
Malacia was very impressive. The work rate and attitude were spot on but we lacked quality in possession.
The energy too fell fairly in the second half.

Hope the manager gets the new signings in asap because at the moment the depth in quality is worrying.

5.) 31 Jul 2022 07:03:40
TRD AM changed at least 8 players around the 68m mark so JF was only warmed up when he scored. That right side is going to be our downfall trying to play McGuire their.

HM at LCB and try LM at RCB or could we maybe even try press on with 343 attacking with LM central stepping forward in the midfield press and swap with HM at least their will always be protection.

6.) 31 Jul 2022 08:13:39
I think we're going to have to accept that anything above 6th in a bonus. the team will play much better footy and will care hard harder that's for sure. Have ups and downs but I'm hoping for a cup win. Can see a midfielder and forward coming in and that's it, might even see a player bought in January. But we're going to have to be patient. a win against pool early on would be good ?.

7.) 31 Jul 2022 13:44:53
You did not miss much, same ol problems exist, drive a bus through 2 centrebacks, pace kills them…. Varane not available again, waste of time
Martial well he is Martial. Useless, how on earth you lot say Ronaldo won’t fit TH system, well what bit of hard work/ closing down/ build up does Martial do. and he don’t score goals like Ronaldo either

Midfield still a severe weak point. TBF Fred done OK, McT waste even worse is DVB he is a joke… he will hardly play a game this season.
Rashford usual self greedy and blind alleys.
Erlanga is not good enough either

Trouble in store this season, I not been impressed as I thought I might be

Sounds all doom and gloom, but if your honest there was not a lot to be proud of yesterday that’s for sure.

8.) 31 Jul 2022 14:11:06
The game yesterday was interesting, it highlighted the progress the team has made in pre-season, the direction the team is going, and the issues that still remain.

United controlled a feisty game, had a difficult first 10 minutes but from then on had the better of it.

Malacia often played as an inverted full back, Erkisen offered creativity and consistency when he came on. I think we clearly missed Sancho who has probably been one of our best players in pre-season.

We created enough chances to win the game, but a draw would have been a fairer result. Martial worked hard off the ball as he has all pre-season. Rashford was promising but couldn't find a way through a stubborn defence.

Elanga continues to look less comfortable in EtH's team than he looked in RR's.

Defensively we look better, but still have a mistake in us.

Atletico made a couple of attacking changes as our side started to tire and they made the most of it and managed to score from their only really good chance of the game.

Considering we travelled with a small squad it was always likely that we'd tire a little early, being unable to make a large number of subs.

Ultimately it was a good test, and helps get the team ready for Brighton.

9.) 31 Jul 2022 14:30:01
Alteti are further behind then us for fitness, so that’s a lame excuse that we tired….
How can you say defence looked good, pace through middle kills the 2 centrebacks
Martial worked hard. and done what exactly…
Rashford could not break down a team that’s 2-3 weeks behind us, so that does bode well.
MCT was not existent…DVB is just not suited to premier football, I would say many of the same ol problems are very prevalent in this team.

10.) 31 Jul 2022 16:44:16
Svilen, did you even watch the game? Atletico made 9 subs, changing all bar one outfield player. United made 3, one of which came in the 91st minute.

Is it surprising that one group of players tired after playing 70 minutes while up against players who have played less than 20 minutes?

11.) 31 Jul 2022 17:24:39
Svilen has a familiar sound to his typing style if I say so myself ??‍♂️.

No love in Svilen, we've all had our disagreements but we do show each other respect.

28 Jul 2022 10:20:03
If I was in charge of the club, yesterday I would have told Ronaldo that he will not train with the first team or play again. As far as I can see no club wants him, but that is his and his agent's problem not ours.

I know he is on huge wages, but leave him out, there is no point having him around anymore. Absolutely love the player, from his debut to the return. The best I have seen in my time. But if this was Scott McTominay kicking up such a fuss and having no suitors he wouldn't play, so why should Ronaldo?


1.) 28 Jul 2022 10:46:59
He (Ronaldo) wants united to break the contract so he can leave.
Can United not just break the contract and leave him and his super agent to it?
That works for both parties, Ronaldo and his agent can go on there merry way and try and get a new club.
United get rid or Ronaldo and free up 400 grand a week wages.
This is something ETH doesn't need, just another massive distraction.

2.) 28 Jul 2022 11:42:32
No wonder players do not want to come to us anymore. Yeah trash the GOAT.

3.) 28 Jul 2022 11:50:52
I think Mendes has seriously overplayed his hand here. I would assume they're finding it difficult to find a club to meet our valuation and his wage demands.

Mendes masterplan now is to get the contract cancelled so he can get his client more money.

As I wrote the other day, Ronaldo can take a wage cut and he'll have clubs interested but he seems to want to have his cake and eat it.

Either Ronaldo can pay out his remainder of his contract or he finds a buyer to meet our valuation, which I'd assume would not be a lot but the principle counts.

4.) 28 Jul 2022 12:01:59
The goat signed a contract that suited him at the time.
Now he wants to be released. If he wants out and no club is prepared to pay for him let him buy himself out of his contract and walk away.
Why should we let him go for free? .

5.) 28 Jul 2022 12:39:22
Agreed Ken. UA; the GOAT is trashing himself. He had a choice.

He chose to behave in his own self interest with no regard for the club and the commitments he has made.

He could have behaved like a decent human being with integrity, acted like a professional and decided to embrace the challenge of helping Ten hag/ Utd (the club he loves remember? ) . He could have set an example, helped younger players and dedicated himself to try and improve his own game with some hard pressing to implement the Ten Hag playing style.

He also has the chance to try and win the Europa League which he has never done.

Unfortunately I think he has blown it and now looks like a baboon's behind. It's a shame to end such a glittering career on such a sour note.

I think the club should look to get rid of him but make sure it costs him. If he won't agree terms then make it clear he won't be playing this season and send him out to do full time community work for the club.

6.) 28 Jul 2022 12:46:04
He wants to add to his CL goal tally of 140.
Messi is the only player even close on 125. I can't see him making that up, especially with PSG having other goalscorers, but is 2 years younger. At any rate a few thrashings of the worst CL teams and insisting on taking penalties and he'll continue to add.
No-one else is even close, although you fancy a few of the younger players like Haaland to be aiming at it, and why not.
I imagine he's thinking if he can add a handful over the next two seasons even for a crappy CL team he'll be able to ensure than Messi can't catch up.

7.) 28 Jul 2022 12:46:20
Trash the goat. OMG i have heard everything now.
Ronaldo obviously means more to you than the club does UA.

8.) 28 Jul 2022 12:20:48
More to the point, why would we want him to walk away right now, with Martial as the only recognised striker at the club.
Ten Hag wanted Amthony for months and we have just walked away from the deal and made a complete balls of it by waiting too long
Regardless if you think Martial can lead the line (he can't) we need more than one striker. We haven't even delivered the flexible wide player Ten Hag wanted, let alone started thinking about replacing Ronaldo.

9.) 28 Jul 2022 13:12:53
Perhaps Dortmund could take him for a year, if he lowers his wage.
They lost Haller for some time, they need player up top, they are a CL team and league is easier to play.

10.) 28 Jul 2022 13:19:36
Trash the GOAT? Ronaldo is behaving like an arse. A contract is a contract. Both sides are bound by it. But Ronaldo and his agent, as is their custom, are always angling for a better deal and using the press to try to force the other party to accede to their wishes to renegotiate the contract. He could have done the honorable thing, turn up like every other squad members and have his agent quietly try to negotiate out of the current mess. But no. He's too good for that. Mr. Vanity was better served by training at home and releasing pictures of his 6 pack while doing abs.

While we might all agree that the return to United was a mistake in that Ronaldo failed to appreciate the depths to which the club had sunk and how little influence he could have on its future, it was a mistake that he and presumably his agent profited heavily from both directly and indirectly.

I think it salient that EtH has taken this job despite LVG's public warning about how United is nothing more than a commercial brand devoid of any commitment to the game itself. What's going on here is the end of two eras. The first is the Woodward one, where our club has been run by amateurs with decisions made for all the wrong reasons. EtH has been assured that this will change. And the second is the Ronaldo one. His star is on the wane and he no longer has the power to force others to accede to his will.

So, he doesn't want to play for United. Fine. He can buy his way out of the contract and go home to await the best offer he can get. At this point in time I don't think his pride will ever allow him to put on a United shirt again if it means he will be perceived as no longer the star who starts every game. Again fine, he can choose not to turn up in which case United should choose to stop paying him. Then again, if another club wants to pay United to use his services for the rest of the season they can negotiate a fee to the club.

What I'm seeing here is a major statement: no player will be bigger than the club again. A proper line of authority must be restored if the club is to return to the heights. Ronaldo, Pogba, Lingard etc are all symbolic of what has been wrong at United. too much player power, too much individuality and self-promotion - characteristics that the club has been complicit in creating.

11.) 28 Jul 2022 13:34:52
Great post Shawthing.

12.) 28 Jul 2022 13:42:03
His ego won't allow him to take a pay cut to join a team in the Champions league and his ego won't allow him to stay at United.

This reminds me of when Homer Simpson had his hand stuck in the vending machine. He was stuck there for hours and couldn't get free until the paramedic said "Homer, are you still holding onto the candy? "

Can't have it all CR7. Something has to give and I hope it's not the club.

13.) 28 Jul 2022 13:50:29
Ronaldo and Mendes are ruining his reputation by whoring him about Europe and having no bites.

Chorlton for years we said get rid of the Pogba circus, this is exactly the same imo. Get rid if he doesn't want to be here, by whatever means.

I would rather watch Charlie McNeill get thrown in because he would fight for every ball and give every single ounce he has. If you want to rebuild properly get rid of the tools who don't want to be there.

I love Ronaldo as a player, I was ecstatic when he returned. Now its turned into a pantomime.

14.) 28 Jul 2022 14:17:38
You misunderstand lads. My point is why would you put him in the reserves? Let him walk away. Terminate the contract that's it. Clean break. Almost everyone of you has said that Ronaldo doesn't suit EtH style then why would you want to him to stay and help EtH?
After everything he has done for the club, i think he deserves respect.
Booing fans and bitching players off, no wonder no top talents want Man Utd. Stick with the McTs of this world. Disrespectful.

Yeah Caolan i get the sentiment behind it but we can't shoot ourselves in the foot by letting him go without replacing him.
If replacements come in i have no issue with Ronaldo going.
In fact after his recent behaviour i will be glad to see him go but it has to suit the club and can't be all on his terms.

16.) 28 Jul 2022 14:40:08
Made me laugh that Mumbles. Ronaldo will now be forever Homer Simpson in my mind. Talk about from hero to zero, what a tool.

17.) 28 Jul 2022 14:42:54
Ronaldo is only interested in Ronaldo

He only wants to better his goal stats

It shows how much he doesn’t care by saying he would join Athletico Madrid. I thought he was a Real Madrid fan

Put him in the reserves and when he throws a wobbler fine him.

18.) 28 Jul 2022 15:43:00
I think sit down and agree with the player to release him and not pay him off. Modern footballers are different and keeping players against their wishes affects other players and agents impression of the club making it harder for us to deal with them.

19.) 28 Jul 2022 16:01:11
He is not, nor has ever been the GOAT.

20.) 28 Jul 2022 16:02:36
Ronaldo is not the goat, he's a very naughty boy.

21.) 28 Jul 2022 17:11:10
Classic, Mumbles ?.

22.) 28 Jul 2022 17:51:44
We paid 13m for him.
We are entitled to recoup if the player wants out.
I don't want him to stay but I would like him to be bought.
If he wants out so bad let him buy his way out.
It is counter productive to keep an unhappy player.
If someone does not buy him and he does not buy himself out he can go on gardening leave without pay if he doesn't want to play.
The club owe him nothing.

23.) 28 Jul 2022 18:32:56
I can understand if Ronaldo wants to leave, and he tried to release news in the media as well. Once was fine.
But it's again and again and again and again is what's making me lose all the respect I had for him.
Honestly even if you get 60-70% of the amount we paid for him he can move on.
For me if he stays he's the bench player and plays when Martial is tired now.
Enough is enough. You can't just go on and keep doing it repeatedly and if things go bad expect to be a certain starter.
Get our Ronaldo, wherever we finish we don't need you.

24.) 28 Jul 2022 20:02:47
Imagine if he joined PSG. Who'd take the penalties lol.

25.) 28 Jul 2022 20:55:54
Showing my naivety here which p1sses me off somewhat given my age, but I feel let down by CR7. I actually believed he ‘loved the club’ as he stated and would possibly even play for nothing to dig us out of a hole.

How stupid do I feel! Need rid asap. To say we took him from a promising lad that fell over easy and helped him on his way to global super star and he shows this selfish attitude. Sorry but his GOAT status is tarnished now.

{Ed014's Note - loved the club my arse, he wanted to go to city but they jogged him off and then he gave it all that I did it for you Sir Alex bollox!

26.) 28 Jul 2022 20:58:01
He isn't going to fit into the new style of play, won't be happy playing a bit part role and doesn't want to be here. Rip up his contract and let him move on. The sooner its put to bed the better.

27.) 28 Jul 2022 21:10:25
I think it's been said on these pages and many more. For anyone who ever saw him play The Goat is Duncan Edwards, as has been reinforced by dad Uncles and Grandad and many many old boys over the years.

For me Sir Bobby sums it up best. 'He was the only player who ever made me feel inferior. "

And Sir Bobby played with Georgie Best so that's some endorsement.

{Ed014's Note - one thing Ronaldo definitely isn’t and that’s the goat, plenty ahead of him.

28.) 28 Jul 2022 21:32:07
Oakbark you echo my thoughts absolutely. Ed014 ………… nah you’re the GOAT.

{Ed014's Note - ?? I might wish!

29.) 28 Jul 2022 22:18:55
What we definitely don't want is an unhappy Ronaldo in the dressing room because there is no way that is going to work out well for us.

30.) 29 Jul 2022 07:45:38
So keep him out of the dressing room oakbark.

{Ed014's Note - he probably has his own dressing room at home with the walls adorned with pictures of himself alongside numerous huge mirrors.

He’ll be fine in there, can pout to his little hearts content!

31.) 30 Jul 2022 15:49:23
Ronaldo finds another club who’ll pay United the £13m we paid for him and he’s free to go. Don’t care where. Can play for Liverpool for all I care as he’s trashed his United reputation anyway. Maybe he can go take them from 2nd to 6th ?

Problem now is every other club knows Ronaldo is a busted flush. One of the best players of all time for sure. But not this 37yo version. He was a vanity signing forced on us last minute to stop him going to City. As much as I wanted him back it just proves decisions made for nostalgic reasons rarely work out for the best.

Ronaldo coming back was a mistake. Keeping him now after his wantaway antics is equally a mistake. But that’s seemingly where we are headed. Hope he likes keeping the bench warm as Ronaldo can’t surely be Plan A now.

Ed- do you think that is the way in for someone like Ratcliffe? Buy a stake now and just through time gradually add and eventually take them over?

Obviously lots of others could do it but he’s the only real name I’ve seen so far.


{Ed002's Note - No. If Jim Ratcliffe wants to take over he will enquire about availability and then put together a formal offer.}

Short memories at times on players.

Elanga came in and made an impact last season, but then as the form fell completely off a cliff he was run into the ground. He is a very talented kid and while he may not go on and be a world beater, he adds some value to the squad and let's see where he ends up in a couple of years. He has some good attributes that if developed could see a pretty good player.

I would love to know what makes you think Shoretire won't make it.

Regarded as one of the biggest talents in the Academy and if he were to leave tomorrow would have no shortage of suitors.

Ronaldo has been a prat all summer. He can’t even be bothered to acknowledge the fans who help pay his wages and sing his name every week.

Spare me the crap that he’s made out to be a scapegoat. His attitude is appalling. The fact we don’t have clubs knocking on the door for him speaks volumes.

How can he make that assessment without working with the player?
