Saul Niquez on his twitter posting he will announce new club in three days.


1.) 31 May 2020 19:37:18
If this is true and not a windup, then reckon he’ll either stay at Athletico, or go to Juventus or PSG (though maybe too similar to Verrati perhaps? ) : United do t seem to have Pogba sorted yet and not sure if he’ll take the risk of City getting a Euro ban.

If he goes to Juventus, could mean Pofba’s most likely escape route blocked and he has to stay with United.

2.) 31 May 2020 22:09:06
Not sure many clubs, if any are going to spending big cash in the current climate.

3.) 31 May 2020 23:06:04
Well he’s recently followed Bruno, Pogba and man it’s foundation on Instagram. Utd move confirmed :’)

4.) 01 Jun 2020 04:47:10
I m sure that " club" will not be football related. just a tease. some horse riding, golf, charity club will it be. don't expect such high profile move to be confirmed like this during this time.

5.) 01 Jun 2020 15:50:17
Saul's Nightclub!

6.) 02 Jun 2020 20:32:22
I’ve seen a few things say it’s to do with an esports club.
We will know soon enougj!

I have a friend who worked with Shaw at Southampton. He says that Shaw is the thickest person he has ever met and that is the real problem with him. He says nothing ever clicks with him and he really doesn't get it.

Nice lad he says, but as thick as two short planks.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 11:41:30
He's a footballer! But to be at the bottom of the class in a class of idiots. >.

2.) 16 Jan 2020 21:43:30
Get fit - play better. Simple for him.

3.) 16 Jan 2020 22:11:50
i have heard exactly the same.

4.) 17 Jan 2020 21:44:54
so what? Rooney is as thick as they come and still had a pretty decent career with us.

Rather than getting upset over this mess, I decided we should embrace it and predict the next 3 years FdJ of the summer, here my guesses.

2023 - Declan Rice
2024 - Jude Bellingham
2025 - Yousef Moukoko

And here is who I think we end up with

2023 - Jonjo Shelvey
2024 - James Ward-Prowse
2025 - Robert Lewandowski (36 and prime United by then)


1.) 11 Aug 2022 11:57:05

Now tgat makes me laugh. Brilliant. We get to suffer as united supporters.

2.) 11 Aug 2022 12:32:31
Why are you leaking this?
This was the murtaugh masterplan.

3.) 11 Aug 2022 12:48:55
Then in 2026 Murtagh will appoint RvN as manager. He is Dutch and so has a philosophy in his DNA.

He will appoint Anderson as his fitness coach and with the newly retired Luke Shaw as nutritionist.

Jessie Lingard will return to United in 2027 as youth team coach because we think he may be able to unlock his potential in that role.

4.) 11 Aug 2022 13:58:04
Haha brilliant stuff ?.



06 Aug 2022 20:55:47
Someone posted a couple of days ago that Gill had been bought back to show Richie and Jonno how to do a quiet transfer.

It must have worked because I am hearing nothing at all about these mega deals they have in the pipeline.


1.) 07 Aug 2022 09:39:08
Gill, debt is the road to ruin accountant, who then worked for our beloved owners. I suspect we will be hearing there is no value in the market comment fairly soon because that was trotted out to protect them not buying the big players when SAF was in place.



21 Nov 2021 14:07:08
Eds what are your thoughts on Kuis Enrique as a manager, I read something about Ronaldo wanting him, which I assume is justedia rubbish but then started thinking about and researching him and he seems well liked and highly rated by a lot of people.

Personally and I think I said this 2 years to 18 months ago is that for me the dream is VDS, Overmars and Ten Haag as a group to come in, I have no idea what we will end up with.


{Ed002's Note - I would doubt Luis Enrique would be considered.}

1.) 21 Nov 2021 14:23:18
Man need the ability to edit posts for spelling.

{Ed014's Note - send them to Shappy first, he’ll sort them for you.

2.) 21 Nov 2021 14:37:11
Ed, he said he wanted to spellchecker his posts, not quadruple his word count!

{Ed014's Note - good point! My bad ??

3.) 21 Nov 2021 15:40:05
I make at least four times the number of spelling/ grammar mistakes as any other poster on here. Although I probably also write at least four times as much as anyone else ?.

{Ed0666's Note - don’t worry about its happy I make the most errors pertaining to grammar, syntax, punctuation et al than any poster and editor on here and I’m meant to be an ‘editor’. I was useless at first, middle and high school and had a poor attitude and aptitude for learning. Was in the bottom sets for all my classes throughout all my school education but that didn’t stop me from having a short but enjoyable career as a journalist in my 30’s. To be fair if I wasn’t for the grammar, punctuation Syntax tools tools on the my faithful PC I would have been royally fuc*ed.

4.) 21 Nov 2021 20:04:13
Ed0666, I'm not worried about it, I've got a think skin and a thinker skull ?.

Sancho is having his medical, can't wait to see him at OT.




01 Oct 2020 16:11:05
BBC has an interesting article on Dennis Bergkamp, who seems to be looking to get back into coaching (not head coach job according to him). I wouldn't mind seeing Dennis coming and replacing any one of our coaching staff.


1.) 01 Oct 2020 17:15:28
We need a coach who knows how to organise the back 4.

2.) 01 Oct 2020 17:32:11
No coach could substitute for lack of pace.

3.) 01 Oct 2020 18:05:35
Lack of pace is easy to mitigate. Sadly it has a big impact in style and tactics though.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 01:22:39
Footballing brain and reading of the game is the most important.
Good positioning can compensate for the lack of pace.

There are lots of transfers every season where players we have not really heard of especially guys in the early stages come in and work. There are lots that don't.

I doubt there is anyone on here that knows a lot about this guy and certainly not wnough to say if it's a good or bad transfer. A few may have seen him in a game or two. A few more some ypu tube highlights or an online scouting report.

He's nothing special at all, not sure why everyone's getting their panties in a bunch over it.

He's a player picked to make Ten Hags system work.

Will lead the press, can play across the front three. Isn't an out and out goal scorer but find into the system well.

Our Midfield crap so moan over their backup being sold.

Maybe EtH doesn't think he's good enough, maybe Garner has asked to go who knows but it's hardly this massive loss and worthy if the histrionics as though we are a 21 Scholes or Giggs go.

For years we have had far too big a squad, if a player is not going to play better to get them sold and recoup some money and reduce wages that gives more to reinvest.

The problem for a businessman buying United is thatvits going to require a massive investment to pull us up to scratch, training ground academy and OT all need serious investment. The womens team does as well to get to the level of other clubs.

Then there is the small matter of the team needing sorting.

The price you'll have to pay to prise it out of the Glazers grubby little fingers is prohibitive when considered eith the amount of work that needs doing.

You know he has United written all over him Ed.

There is no point arguing with United fans who have decided we are skint and the Glazers have financially ruined us, they will never listen no matter how much we spend on fees and wages.

I got mates who will tell me Nunez and Frenkie didn't sign because the Glazers never authorised its fake news to appease the fans it it's the same for x y z every season. You see stuff like that on here. Is it not a possibility that players won't come here cause we are run by incompetent AssClowns who couldn't run a tap never mind a football club.

Now if these people would argue that its the Glazers fault because they keep appointing AssClowns to run their club they would have a point. But to many people spout this nonsense and then protest against the wrong thing. Don't protest against the Glazers debt, protest against their appointments all the while the noise is about the debt stopping us buying players they can ignore it, cause the protesters don't know what they are talking about.

Protest against the idiots running the club and needing proper competent experienced football guys in place of the AssClowns and maybe they look at the real issues.
