Reports saying our bid for Josh King has been turned down by Bournemouth.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 06:21:55
The very Josh King that used to play for us?

2.) 31 Jan 2020 08:14:36
Would prefer him then Slimani.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 08:37:07
i don't rate him what so ever. would he offer more than martial?

somtimes martial can be fantastic but he always drifts in and out of games for me.

im unsure on king don't think he would improve us.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 08:49:06
Agree don't want him I like the look of william jose looks half decent big and strong and knows where the net is.

5.) 31 Jan 2020 09:26:37
Martial has been given the No.9 shirt and a massive new deal.

When fit he will be the first choice central striker.

We aren't looking for a world class first choice striker to come in.

We need a rotation option who offers something different, ideally a back to goal striker who can bring others into the game.

Giroud would be the ideal signing, I just can't see Chelsea selling to a rival and if they would I see Spurs ahead of us in the queue due to Giroud preferring to stay in London.

6.) 31 Jan 2020 09:57:59
I think Chelsea will rather sell to us than Tottenham. plus Giroud knows he has a better chance of getting playing time with us over the next 12 months. Given his age he will also want a final pay day which we can offer better than Tottenham.
THe only issue is we are not interested.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 10:02:25
Some of you may have seen The Masked signer on TV (yeah, quality I know! ), and would have seen Teddy Sheringham as the 'tree'.

If we wanted to sign a tree, maybe we could sign him again. Be a cheaper option than Giroud.

8.) 31 Jan 2020 10:10:13

Martial lacks consistency. Also you said when he is fit. He is quite injury prone. He needs to be more aggressive. At times he is like a other Pogba, hands on his hips.

9.) 31 Jan 2020 10:53:25
I don’t rate Martial at all.

If we had sold him and held onto Rom, we’d be in a much better position this year. Martial is just a confused player, doesn’t have the instincts to make it as a striker and hasn’t worked hard enough to improve his wing play.

10.) 31 Jan 2020 11:14:26
I think Martial is a better player than many give him credit for. That said, he doesn't look like he will become the world class striker he looked like he would grow in to during his first season at the club.

He is a good at linking up play and is the most clinical striker at the club (Greenwood not withstanding as he is in his debut season and isn't ready to be first choice starting striker every week) . He doesn't make enough selfless runs or gambling runs.

In the right set up and tactics he can be a very good striker. Considering this season we have struggled to create good goalscoring chances, and Martial has spent time out injured (which often means a player needs a game or two to play themselves back into form) . Martial has 8 goals in 1458 minutes which is a goal every 182 minutes or a goal every other game. Which is a solid scoring rate. If he hand't been injured and we had been creating more and better goalscoring chances he could be close to being one of the top scorers in the league.

The real issue with Martial is his injury record. He just can't stay fit for a whole season. That's why we need another central striker, with Rashford struggling centrally and Greenwood being a year or two away from being ready to step into that role.

My favourite person for that role would be Raul Jimenez, but he certainly won't be available mid-season. So someone like Giroud for 18 months would be a great option to allow Greenwood time to grow into the role.

11.) 31 Jan 2020 12:10:23
Shaps, you need to change your name to Stato. Or get a hobby.



28 Jan 2020 20:17:30
I have it on good authority that Woodward upped the offer on Fernandes when Ole threatened to bring back Alexis next season at the press conference this morning.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 20:34:36
Lol., that’s good. 👍🏻.



27 Jan 2020 17:21:06
Hearing reports that we are in talks with Antero Henrique for the Director of Football role. I thought he was off the Inter last week and we were in talks with Campos.


1.) 27 Jan 2020 18:50:16
Falling for it again are we?

2.) 27 Jan 2020 18:51:00
Here we go PR machine in overdrive this is clubs excuse for there being no signings in January but we might have a DOF meaning no. need to protest because Woodward won't be in charge of transfers Win Win for the board again.

3.) 27 Jan 2020 20:18:06
Not falling for it Dan, just pointing out the regularity with which we are linked with a new DoF, our PR dept is busier than our transfer dept.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 01:00:12
I wouldn't get too excited anyway he hasn't exactly had glowing reports from his previous jobs.



05 Aug 2019 06:25:38
The Times reporting that Real have bid £27 million + James for Pogba, which United have rejected. Is there any Marid player that you would take as part of a deal, I cannot think of one.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 07:57:08
Hazard ;-)

2.) 05 Aug 2019 08:08:22
Isco is the only one.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 08:11:33
Hazard, Vinicius Jr, Varane, Casemiro :)

4.) 05 Aug 2019 08:33:32
Varane+80M for Pogba instead of Maguire.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 08:46:07

6.) 05 Aug 2019 09:18:21
Zinedine Zidane, at 47 he would still be the second best creative player at the club.



12 Jul 2019 18:32:34
BBC reporting Lukaku to Inter will not happen.


1.) 12 Jul 2019 19:06:47
Not if they can't meet Uniteds valuation.

Same goes for any club we had to meet wb valuation.

Lukaku is under contract.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 21:10:08
Speaking of the Beeb. How come, everyday during the season, they have a transfer talk page. Then when the transfer window is actually flipping open, they stop doing it.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 01:41:10
Lukaku should stay and fight for his place,

4.) 13 Jul 2019 08:38:58
We can moan when we sell players cheap seemingly always and then want players gone no matter what, club has a valuation and then they will negotiate.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 10:33:37
Unfortunately we probably overpaid for Lukaku, and may have to accept that his value has not risen while at the club.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 09:37:15
Apparently inter wouldn't consider skriniar in a deal to any club but they want RL and at a lower fee than we want. Easy choice: make skriar a part of the deal if man utd are willing or pay the rate for RL. After all they stuck to their valuation on perisic .

{Ed002's Note - Nonsense I am afraid. Playing on Twitter again?}

7.) 13 Jul 2019 11:35:14
Southern Monkey, the Beeb's transfer page hasn't stopped. I read it on the app every day. I think it's been shunted to the bottom of the website due to the women's World Cup.

8.) 13 Jul 2019 12:01:08
Ed 002 - not on twitter I'm afraid.
Been a long time admirer of Skriniar who "apparently " is not available; various reports and probably wrong, and was simply stating it would imo, be a good deal to involve a player that could be a more attractive option to us and go someway to easing defensive frailties. Wishful thinking ed002,

{Ed002's Note - There has been no attempt of MU to do that.}

9.) 13 Jul 2019 21:16:52
The club should not sell its assets cheaply but there comes a time when holding on makes not much business sense if it means retaining a player who is not going to get game time and whose salary is taking up needed space. If that's the case for Lukaku then £60m would at least be a profit on the residual book value and £5m a year off the wages bill. That's a lot of conjectures and we have no idea what's going on, or even whether there are any serious talks or with whom. In any event we should trust Ed Woodward. We all know he has amazing expertise in the transfer market.

10.) 13 Jul 2019 22:56:41
Icardi booted off the pre season tour so he could be going leaving a space and some money for Lukaku.

Looking ahead to the Europa League competition, we face Lask on 5 August, then if we finish off the job the next game is on 16 August.
If they are all fully fit, should Ole play a full strength team against Lask just to keep them match fit. 16 days between matches seems a long time to let them rest.


1.) 25 Jul 2020 18:51:57
I'd imagine he will play a strongest team, although Romero and Ighalo would certainly get a run out from the beginning.

2.) 26 Jul 2020 08:05:34
I disagree. We look totally knackered and a big rest looks required. If match sharpness is an issue, play a second string team and then bring on those who may need to stretch their legs. We can’t underestimate how quickly next season will be with us and then the slog begins again!

3.) 26 Jul 2020 08:53:28
he will play a second string team no need to play anyone else will have sonthing like a 10 day rest for the next round which is a 1 game knockout round.



16 Jul 2020 23:40:42
A few of the players, like Bruno, look like they need to be rested for a game. With a possible four games left in the domestic season, would you play a weaker team against Chelsea to ensure the players are fresh for those last two games?


1.) 17 Jul 2020 00:28:30
Definately, Pogba and Fernandez need resting. I know Soljkaer has the mentality that we need to win every competition (which I love BTW) he must know his midfield needs a rest.

2.) 17 Jul 2020 01:05:37
No, just no. We go and try and win every trophy.

3.) 17 Jul 2020 02:46:00
Before the Chelski game kicks off we’ll know the Leicester result. If they drop points, I’d rest a few players, but if Leicester win I’d rest players for the West Ham game instead.

4.) 17 Jul 2020 04:35:14
Rest them, with the added substitutes we can bring them on 45 mins.
I would play our reserves and make the chelsea really cagey and disruptive. Like we used to do with Jose.



05 Jul 2020 10:06:40
Last day of the season

Leicester v Manchester United
Chelsea v Wolves

Should be a good day, thank goodness the pubs are open again.


1.) 05 Jul 2020 10:39:21
Why thank goodness the pubs are open
You can't watch a match properly in a pub.

2.) 05 Jul 2020 11:13:40

I’m not sure that day will have a huge impact, everybody saying that but a lot can happen between now and then, I’d be surprised if wolves can still get top 4 at that point for example, the week before that when we have West Ham at OT and Chelsea are away at Liverpool and Leicester are at Tottenham seems more likely to determine things. Hopefully we will be up there by then.



01 Jul 2020 22:12:53
Great night for United, even the most pessimistic amongst us should be optimistic we can get a Champions League place. Let's hope we keep this good run going.


1.) 01 Jul 2020 22:24:39
I wouldn't hold out us and wolves making 3rd and 4th.
Leicester won't be top 4 for sure.

2.) 02 Jul 2020 00:21:22
Yea, I don't see how Leicester will make it in the top 4 at the end of the season, let's win with authority against Bournmouth now.

3.) 02 Jul 2020 06:16:24
Wolves still have Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea. If they pick up maximum points from those games then fair play they deserve Champions League football.



01 Jul 2020 21:54:53
Is it correct that we play West Ham on Sat 18 July then Chelsea in the Cup on Sunday 19 July or is the West Ham game being moved?


{Ed002's Note - It will be moved.}

1.) 01 Jul 2020 22:38:02
I would imagine we'll play west ham midweek after Chelsea then onto the last game against Leicester.

2.) 02 Jul 2020 06:18:30
What a great two weeks of football we will get.

Is it because the club's decision-makers see us being charged top dollar for players we want and think they can do the same with players we are trying to off load, not realising the difference between a buyers market and sellers market.

Instead of him trying to break into a top team, why doesn't he take a step back and go to a so called lower club where he can get a first team game, develop and prove himself.
If he is that good the top teams will soon come calling once he proves himself.

We have been battling for 5, 6 and 7 for most of the last 7 years. If we qualify today, that will be top 4 in 2 of the last 3 years, progression.

Gives teams time to pressure us on the ball, which is an area where we don't excel, especially with Vardy today.

When Pogba tries to force it, that is when he fails. He is better when he is relaxed and playing his natural game.
Lots of jaffa cakes needed as well, banish those fatigue issues we have been having.

Leicester haven't lost at home since City in February it will not be an easy game. Hoping that Wolves do us a favour and score an early goal against Chelsea, takes the pressure off.
