Galatasaray have never won a game on English soil.

UTD players. hold my beer!

we lost a game playing really well for very long spells and can argue we should have put it to bed. Defensively a shamble and don't blame Cas for the red its a split second decision on a hospital pass by Onana.

Still completely back this manager to get things right, can't coach for moments of stupidity by individual players.

2.) 04 Oct 2023 07:53:10
Can’t blame Cas one bit. He was doing his absolute best to resurrect a disaster served up to him by Onana. Quickly becoming a Massimo Taibi style signing.

But we have no ability to close out games and it matters not one jot how well you play for periods of time if you royally screw it up for the remainder.

We are collectively a shambles and there is no amount of polish that can cover the current cracks.

I am still backing ETH. I refuse (at the moment) to join any ETH OUT campaign but we have been lucky to get the points we have so far and at the moment I cannot see a way out of this spiral.

Keeping my chin up for now!

3.) 04 Oct 2023 08:03:56
My only criticism is that he doesn't like to drop players he bought. The very players that are not doing it right now. let's be honest. Antony- huge waste of money. Onana - shocker. Mount - Chelsea are still laughing.

He let a great left back go out on loan, he could be doing a better job of what we have right now. Its poor.

On a positive, i have moved the sofa so i can hide behind it for the next match ?.

4.) 04 Oct 2023 09:41:48
Off the pitch I have no doubt EtH is getting things right, despite those above him determined to put every problem they can in his path.
On it, I can't say I've seen much if any improvement over what we've been used to. You could argue defensively at CB in particular we've regressed. What happened for that third goal was a shambles, let alone what happened for the penalty which was an individual error leading to a Casemiro special. Should have conceded 4 if not 5 which is woeful at home to a team that has never won in England comprised of Premier League cast-offs.
It's all difficult to judge with so many injuries (another mystery) and therefore players playing out of position. We should have 6 fullbacks to chose from, we have one. At least we got to see Rash on the right, although if he's on the left I'm sure he shoots and scores the one on one. Maybe he's heard the constant moans on here that he's selfish and decided to square it. Think he was caught in two minds and ended up hashing it up.
One positive of course was Hojlund. A great display of hold-up play, pace, power, positional sense and rugged determination, likes to get in the opposition defenders' faces too.

5.) 04 Oct 2023 10:18:28

Have to disagree on Mount. I thought he was really good. The Left back left before our injury crisis so can't blame the manager especially if you are trying to get the kid games and help in his development.

6.) 04 Oct 2023 11:01:25
Mount was very good again last night, take your blinkers off! Chelsea certainly won’t be laughing they lost him!
Who’s this great left back we let leave on loan? Surely we’re not talking about a kid who did well at Preston that none of us have seen?

I agree with Ahmad, I thought second half in particular we were really good up until the chaos!

Should have been out of sight and not let the comedians at the back ruin it!

7.) 04 Oct 2023 11:33:50
Dalot? Who needs a defender who can’t defend? Fernandes? He does one positive thing every few games and he is a big hero. I firmly believe that he is our biggest problem. Insists on playing the ball to the opposition. Neither of these two players merit a start. Central defence a shambles. You could drive a horse and cart through it. I think that many of our players are vastly overrated. It’s not a time for panicking but we need to get the basics and the structure of the team right.

8.) 04 Oct 2023 12:21:18
Mount was really good? A player we never needed who hasn't shown a glimpse of anything and fits in nowhere in the team.

9.) 04 Oct 2023 13:20:48
Not sure on this criticism of Mount. He’s barely played, and is a very good player. He seems to be the latest target for unhappy fans.

It’s going to be months before we get our strongest XI on the pitch together. Until then we are going to have to deal with some less than ideal results.

10.) 04 Oct 2023 14:43:01
Onana? Too early to say but doesn’t bode well so far
AWB Keep for me as he can actually defend
Dalot Get rid can’t defend can’t attack
Maguire Get rid no more to say
Lindelof Bang average get rid
Varane Legs gone ship out
Martinez Keep
Shaw Keep probably but also frustrating
Malacia Keep not had long enough
Ericksen Get rid far too slow
Casemiro Keep but needs better players around him
Mount Too early but I’m not a massive fan for the outlay
Bruno So frustrating gives the ball away far too often so I’m on the fence with him
McTominay Get rid never good enough
Hannibal I like his energy but needs a run of games to see if he is good enough
Anthony One trick pony but is still young so? for me
Sancho Goodbye
Rashford I don’t rate him and personally would get rid as we would get good money for him
Martial Lazy injured all the time had his time Goodbye
Garnacho Needs time to develop
Hojlund I like the look of this kid. I think in a few years he will be excellent

Basically were doomed ha ha.

11.) 04 Oct 2023 17:16:32
Watching United this season, and many times last season even, there are basically a handful of players I would say keep, the rest can go and I wouldn’t have any issues with it if they did.

The players that are in and around the first team and I would keep are AWB, Martinez, Shaw, Casemiro (for now), Mainoo, Hannibal, Mount (needs time but he’s done ok), Pellistri, Amad, Garnacho, Hojlund.

I wouldn’t care if any others were sold and top of the list of exits for me would be Sancho, Martial, Maguire, Dalot, Fernandez and Rashford in that order.

Onana isn’t looking great either so it could be a new keeper very soon for me too.

12.) 04 Oct 2023 19:42:59
Not a massive fan of Mount for the outlay? What’s the outlay got to do with anything?

Mount a player we didn’t really need …

Jesus here’s the new scapegoat! An excellent player, Chelsea best player over last three years and will prove to be excellent addition! Then our fan base can go after another new signing after a handful of games and make them the new fall guy!

13.) 04 Oct 2023 20:12:32
The outlay has everything to do with it as it could of been spent elsewhere

60 million come on.



15 Jun 2023 05:06:33
Need to vent…….

Who is this Fabrizio Romano bloke?

He throws a 1000 darts at the board and gets one bullseye. He states the obvious week in week out and covers himself by adding “may” or “could” to every report.

Todays “exclusive”

………. Manchester United are convinced that they can agree personal terms with Chelsea attacking midfielder Mason Mount, Fabrizio Romano has exclusively revealed to GIVEMESPORT……….

Guys a flog!


1.) 15 Jun 2023 06:11:49
Each to their own, I find his updates pretty interesting.

2.) 15 Jun 2023 07:10:57
I find him summarizing what's out there and nothing new. If you read the various newspaper or online stuff one day its on one day its off when it comes to united. One day we have money to sign everybody and anybody and one day we can't afford anyone.

Its hard to ignore it and not get frustrated but probably the best way to deal with it. We can't influence anything so live with what happens and hope we improve the team substantially this summer and get key players in.

A lot of things being reported is common sense. All the major teams have a lot of the same players on their list as everyone's scouting network does their homework to a decent degree. what varies is how one looks at a player compared to another and also what's their immediate needs and requirements and budgets available.

For example, nothing new there when you read Psg, Chelsea, Bayern, RM all strikers we are looking at. only difference maybe their rankings of target may be different to ours given their playing style, budgets and max age restrictions.

Romano regurgitates what is out there and even when he says deal is done plenty of other have reported the same thing.

3.) 15 Jun 2023 08:44:24
Found him and David Ornstein to be most reliable - not sure what OP is on about.

4.) 15 Jun 2023 09:12:28
I agree with the OP, every time i watch his YT videos, I hope to hear something I don't already know, but it never happens. He is just recycling news and bringing them as "exclusive", even though they are not.

5.) 15 Jun 2023 09:25:31
He's made a good living out of stating the obvious.

6.) 15 Jun 2023 09:45:22
He's clearly someone with a few connections, probably through agents. He seems to have some kind of deal where he gets the nod when a deal is done before it's publicised and then he gets kudos for breaking the deal.

But the rest is just filler, he said she said, etc. No doubt the talks are happening, but the reality is clubs will talk with dozens of agents about hundreds of players every season. Yet only serious pursue a few.

He's a smart guy who's found a niche and is making a fortune talking about deals that mostly will never happen, but it keeps people engaged.

7.) 15 Jun 2023 10:14:48
Remember he posted a video jumping the gun over Ole being sacked? He talked about how his sources at the club have told him all this information. He made a video ready to go about a month too early.

People think of him as some kind of god. He's a tap in merchant who announces news a few minutes before it breaks officially.

He's not hurting anyone and he's nowhere near the worst of his kind.

I wonder does he have an account on here?

8.) 15 Jun 2023 10:39:21
He's just very, very good at self-publicity.

9.) 15 Jun 2023 10:53:20
Watching him reminds me on a post-match Ole interview. Goes round in circles repeating what you heard the day before, without ever really committing to anything or telling you anything you didn't already know.



25 May 2023 10:58:46
Wayne joined United at 18. If you are good enough, you are old enough.

If we want an absolute bargain, we should look at a young kid here in Oz. Nestory Irankunda. 17 years old, a beast, very brash, very fast and skilful. Has it all. Yes, he could well struggle initially at the level, but for 2-3 million it’s worth the risk. There are already teams in Europe (Bayern) looking at him.


1.) 25 May 2023 11:26:12
Ronnie, is that you?

2.) 25 May 2023 11:30:07
Rooney joined a united side that was dominating English football and was stocked full of quality experienced players to guide him through. Plus he had already played 2 full seasons in the EPL.

Know nothing about this kid, but it’s a completely different situation. If bought it would be for the youth team because throwing untested kids in at the deep end with no experience at a top level club is a recipe for disaster.

3.) 25 May 2023 11:59:32

United's non-European scouting network is pathetic.
They've probably already seen him, but have likely already decided that excellent value and great potential isn't worth the travel time.

For years, PL clubs allowed non-European prospects to be brought into other European leagues, only to then pay big fees once the 'audition' has proved successful.
Now, PL clubs are more keen to cut out the audition process and take the punts themselves - all except United who seemingly cannot be bothered.

Even City, yes big moneybags City who have apparently only got their success because they bought it, even they can be bothered to do some proper continental scouting.
United only look at players like Julián Álvarez, whereas City will follow up on their interest.

4.) 25 May 2023 12:33:08
Woggle it’s hard to know. There’s plenty of stories of scouts being unhappy their recommendations were not being followed up.

We’ve been a shambles behind the scenes for years and all I hope is that the new owners bring a proper structure and plan.

5.) 25 May 2023 18:30:42
I thought it was going to be evan ferguson.

6.) 25 May 2023 18:41:33
AJH, what a shout. Ronnie did love an obscure kid from a lesser league. Definitely brought something to the discussions.
In essence I agree that if you good enough you are old enough, however the pressure needs to be taken off by also having other players to pick the load up which is why Rooney worked when he came in.
Ferguson would be great if we also bring in another experienced striker.

7.) 26 May 2023 00:27:23
Don’t disagree Danny. My point is that we can get bargains and let them develop. This kid will go far. City group are trying to get him to swap teams here in Oz. He would certainly need to be nurtured but need to speculate to accumulate.

Can’t lambast Benny for turning up late when 16 players and the manager don’t even turn up to the games!

Punctuality aside. He is not there to win popularity contests!

Fergie, I suspect would have been sacked many times if it was a player popularity contest. That’s the problem with the modern game. Too much player power and pandering to these clowns.

Play for the shirt, grow up or p. off!

The problem is that as the game has evolved on the park then so sadly have the expectations of all around it.

Players are paid stupid money and as a result they are expected to perform to any system, instantly. Now I would agree that for the money they are paid then they should be able to adapt.

I foresee a future where its not the best players that get to play but those that can indeed adapt, instantly.

In my mind it’s a transitional stage we are in from unfit larrikins and lads who could play and adapt to ultra fit players who can adapt. At the moment we are at a point where, in the most part we have good technicals players who are fit but have no ability to adapt or change.

It’s coming, but slowly. Perhaps ETH is a ahead of his time, and trying to plug gaps in his longer term plan, if only we knew what that was eh!

Whilst I agree somewhat with the potential losses I do not think it would be anywhere near 50%. And gate receipts would change little as there are tens of thousands of fans who want to get into games and many more who would support the boys regardless of the league they are in. Of course there are many who would not, but they are not the real fans of the club, rather than the glory of the EPL. Of course the revenue would drop incredibly for the other reasons.

Would I want that to happen? Hell NO! Been there, done that!

On another note……. any chance we can limit responses to say 250 words? I get tired reading Shappy responses.

Like sticking plasters on a femoral bleed! Wasting time cycling managers until the club fix the bigger issues.

But we all know that the fix they will come up with is a new manager.

Oh how quick we were to slate Ole for his tactics. Maybe, just maybe the apple is so rotten to the core it does not matter who we get in?

Moyes, LVG, Mourinho, Ole and now Ten Hag. All potentially good managers who, given a structure could perform reasonably, have failed drastically. It’s only a matter of time before ETH is gone, not if. The LEECHES will be panicking about their retirement nest egg losing money by the millions as we slip down the table and will see him gone by Xmas.

I’m not calling for his head, yet, but something has to radically change or I will be! Regardless of the poor excuse we as fans keep coming up with (unsettled 11, injuries, club sale, distractions etc) we are not performing one iota. There are a lot of internationals at the club and regardless of who is on the pitch they should be playing the ETH way. Mind you, if someone could tell me what that is I would be grateful.

What I am seeing is blind faith being put into totally disinterested and woeful players by a manager who is quite frankly so far out of his depth it’s scary.

Perhaps this is just the level the club is now at. Bang average players with a seemingly bang average manager, bang average structure being led by bang average senior management.

It’s hard to watch. Hell I was not even at this level of hurt with LVG and Ole!
