BBC reporting that neither us or arsenal will agree to the sanchez transfer unless miki goes the other way.

No idea how much truth is in this, especially given how Ed02's previously stated that transfers involving money and an additional player are generally unlikely.

Imo if that's what's needes to get sanchez in I'd be more than happy, but it doesn't fill me with confidence for this transfer to happen.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:11:00
I can’t see it. I think miki will turn them down and it will go tits up.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:27:12
That's what in thinking. But then again, he must know now that he's not really wanted, so a move is going to be needed to reignite his career.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:28:18
Looks like it's other agents trying to scupper the Sanchez deal. If he comes brilliant . But let's not spend all January chasing a lost cause.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:15:59
It's being reported now it would be a straight player swap.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 17:51:52
Mhiki’s agent now stepping into the deal.

Enough said.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 13:22:23
Wenger saying deal is likely.



11 Jan 2018 12:53:59
Apparently we have put in a bid for Sanchez.

Made my day hearing that.

Intersting article in the Telegraph today regarding pogba. - note you'll find the full article on reddit of you search for it so can avoid the pay wall.

Paints him as a much loved player in the dressing room, bu players and manager alike, and someone quite humble who brings gifts to the tea lady.

Not sure what to male of it, but a very different picture to what fans often paint.

Personally, I'd love him to stay and want to be here and be happy, but I've no idea if he does.


{Ed077's Note - he has always been known to be a really good person by all accounts. Just sometimes media try to make him out to be a devil, and and person, ala Raheem Sterling.

1.) 08 Apr 2021 16:22:13
The only thing that has annoyed me about Pogba are his poor performances over the years. Apart form last December/ beginning of January, his performances have been poor.

2.) 08 Apr 2021 16:18:42
There's a shocking amount of typos and grammatical errors in that post.

What's your thoughts on him Ed? Would you want him to stay? Do you think he will?

{Ed077's Note - I dont want him to stay because he has expressed his desire to leave on numerous occasions and in the recent seasons has started to miss significant number of games due to injury.

I think Pogba had all the qualities, on paper, to become the best midfielder in the world but never put it all together to perform on a consistent basis for whatever reason.

IMO Pogba wont stay. If we dont facilitate a move in the summer, he might end up leaving on a free. (Re-emphasise: Just an Opinion)}

3.) 08 Apr 2021 17:03:06
Similar to Balotelli, who would frequently turn up at schools unannounced to sign autographs and take gifts to the kids. On another night he had a fireworks party. in his kitchen. I think players are often misrepresented. A story about Raheen Sterling with a gun on his thigh is sadly more likely to sell papers than one talking about the millions I suspect he gives to good causes.

I have a cousin who was a youth player at Spurs a few years back. He'd always tell me about the players who went out of their way to stay behind and mingle, or do unexpected good deeds with their time and money. There was one he named (very paces winger) who would always be the first one away and not give one second or penny more. I guess there are lots of both kinds of player but I suspect in general we only hear the bad.

4.) 08 Apr 2021 17:18:33
I have nothing against Pogba the person. I'm sure he's a lovely guy. I have a problem with Pogba the footballer. He's constantly batting eyelashes at the big clubs, using his agent as his mouth piece who belittles our club at every opportunity. He's turned in average performances for years and should have been shown the door a long time ago.

It isn't a coincidence that he's starting to perform when his contract is nearly done and he's in the shop window.

He won't be missed when he's gone.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Pogba's agent ever being anything other than entirely honest about the club.}

5.) 08 Apr 2021 17:40:06
Ed002, it doesn't matter whether Pogba's agent has been honest or not. I find it unprofessional that he should make his views known on his client's employer.

{Ed002's Note - He is not unprofessional, just teasing the amateurs.}

6.) 08 Apr 2021 19:37:33
Its Rinola's MO, there isn't a club in Europe that he hasn't upset at some time by trying to engineer his player to move.

Just look at what he did at Ajax 20 years ago, when he was caught speaking on the phone to Moggi at Juventus saying he would force the Zlatan move through by telling him not to turn up for training and turning up late for meetings with the club.

Similar stories can be heard from the likes of Real, Napoli, Liverpool, Barca, Milan, its not just United.

{Ed002's Note - Folks make things up all of the time.}

7.) 08 Apr 2021 22:02:01
002 said years ago that he is a good guy. I too believe he is a nice guy.
My problem is that he is not giving 100% and he usually only cares of moments for highlights rather doing the dirty work and what's good for the team.

8.) 09 Apr 2021 06:36:47
Personally I’d keep him as he adds something to our midfield. Who will have the cash to buy him this summer? We will be asking for £50m, and Thr clubs who may go for him have finer priorities/ no cash!

9.) 09 Apr 2021 10:33:53
I'd like to keep him. There won't be as much silly money floating around this summer with loans probably more likely although I expect Haaland will be the only 100m+ transfer.

10.) 09 Apr 2021 15:34:19
Sorry Ed but I'm not having that. His behaviour is not teasing, it's manipulative. Pogba is still under contract and Rinola is the one acting like an amateur.

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid that you really don't understand the situation. Mino offered Haaland but Manchester United didn't like the terms and he went to Dortmund. Manchester United have cut off all contact with Mino over Paul Pogba - which is stupid.}



08 Feb 2021 15:14:49
Pogba out for a couple of weeks. VDB it's your time to shine and show us you deserve a place. Assuming Ole doesn't just play Fred of course, which wouldn't surprise me.

But in all seriousness, if vdb is supposed to be pogba's replacement then he really should be starting all of the next few games and if he does, he needs to show he deserves to keep his place.

Here's hoping he does just that.


1.) 10 Feb 2021 10:38:01
Watching DVB against WHU last night I was very unimpressed. For somebody surely gagging for this opportunity he didn’t show enough for the ball. Neither did he shout for or demand the ball. When he did get the ball he simply performed a very snappy short return pass or a sideways or back pass. I know there’s more there but he looked lost and almost relieved to be subbed. Disappointing and confusing in equal measure.

2.) 10 Feb 2021 10:47:36
I disagree scooby.

Whilst I agree he was unimpressive, he was making space and asking for the ball alot. The only issue was that the team were reluctant to play it too him and preferred the "safe" option. Could that be down to a lack of confidence in him from the team?

3.) 10 Feb 2021 10:56:21
He made a lot of runs but never got the ball.

1 of a few if not the onky player moving without the ball last night.

Ww are far to static that's why we cannot bresk teams down.

Slow and boring with and without the ball.

4.) 10 Feb 2021 11:00:01
I found his movement to be poor. He kept moving behind a West Ham player so he couldn't receive the ball.

A talented player no doubt but after watching him last night and against Liverpool I wonder if he's a bit fragile mentally. He doesn't look like he wants it.

He certainly hasn't done anything to prove he should be in the starting 11 and his performances (albeit they've been few and far between) have declined since the start of the season.

If we know Pogba is leaving and we know VDB is the future, we should be playing VDB as much as possible and phasing Pogba out. But Ole hasn't done that and we're beginning to see why.

5.) 10 Feb 2021 11:44:31
Hes been poor, looked off the pace last night. Understandable as he hasn't played regular football.

I am a bit surprised that he's being pencilled in as a pogba replacement next season by so many fans, seem like polar opposite players.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's sold in the summer as he still rightly has an impressive reputation on the continent and his agent is not shy of letting people know that donny isn't happy with a bit part role.

6.) 10 Feb 2021 11:53:06
He looked completely lost and overwhelmed by everything last night and in every game i have seen him play this season.
His movement was poor, he constantly passed the ball backwards. He never turned once with the ball and tried to make something happen.
At one point he received a pass in the opposition box and instead of having a run at the defender or crossing it he actually turned back and played the ball backward. I actually felt sorry for him at that point. I really can't see him being at United next season.

7.) 10 Feb 2021 11:54:59
At this moment in time I can’t think of one reason why I would want Ole to start him ahead of Fred.

Once again last night his movement was there but he seems scared to death of taking any risks, he never takes the ball and turns, he constantly plays the safe pass, I’d be interested to know how many of his passes went straight back to the player who gave it to him. That’s fine a few times but he never seems to want to create, leaving that job to other players and taking no responsibility for the team actually winning.

I’ve said it before but the last player we had who used to just do what VDB is doing was Tom Cleverley and he got absolute pelters from our own fans saying he wasn’t good enough and safe and boring isn’t good enough. Unless VDB starts to take some risks and improves there isn’t a place for him in the team. I think there is a player there and he’s clearly having a ‘tough time’ and struggling to settle. I am hoping to see a huge improvement before he gets near being a first choice selection.

8.) 10 Feb 2021 11:59:22
It would probably help if he is played in his proper position as a midfielder rather than a number 10.

Id like to see him get a few games in a midfield two preferably alongside mctominay.

9.) 10 Feb 2021 12:06:14
I think VDB is yet to adapt to the league and our team.
But I don't see an X factor in him. He doesn't seem to create any chance and doesn't possess good passing range.
Almost of all his passes are either sideways or backwards.

Maybe he is having a slow start like Fred. Personally I would have liked him to drop deeper and get more involved in the play.

10.) 10 Feb 2021 12:09:57
Said that a few weeks ago GDS. TC23 reincarnated. He has to create more, far too safe and everything is short.

11.) 10 Feb 2021 14:16:56
And that's why the problem is the coach . Donny doesn't make things happen and gets pelters because of this. We are used in midfielder who makes things happen and make a moment of magic. that's the only we know, not too progressive.
In a parallel Universe our team would know how to make the most of his movements and we would say what a good player he is. Donny doent and can't make things happen but moves ball time and makes the team tick. To make most of him we must become Ajax Bayern Barcelona etc and play total football that don't depend in individual magic. I said it before, we are not ready for Donny.

12.) 10 Feb 2021 15:46:28
Oh so it’s Ole’s fault that Donny is playing badly? Which means it must be Ole’s fault that Shaw, AWB, mctominay, fred, Bruno and cavani are all playing well then?

A good player can play in any team, he should be able to adapt and hopefully he will but saying he’s amazing but the coach is useless so he can’t play well is bolloxology in my opinion.

13.) 10 Feb 2021 16:40:58
He is not an amazing player. We will judge him in time.
But he is a player well suited in well coached teams like Ajax or City in which every player knows what exactly has to do with a lot of movement around him, quicker build up and generally a more progressive style.
Yesterday again we were so slow in our build up that i needed two coffees to not sleep. Its not about being effective or not. Its about being progressive and well coached.
In a progressive team you don't rely in a player to make things happen (thats why we think Donny is crap when he plays) . All the team is responsible for playing good and fast taking opponents out of position so space will be created and chances will come. Like Liverpool. Pool doesn't have a "Bruno" to create. But still they are far better at opening stubborn defences.

14.) 10 Feb 2021 17:07:30
He's a bang average player who looked good in a dominant Ajax team in a very poor league.

15.) 10 Feb 2021 18:27:11

Not sure Liverpool is the best example to use on this one.



30 Jan 2021 20:43:35
Ole saying he's happy with a point.

And he's right. Because he doesn't have ambitions to win the league this season, he wants an improvement on last season, top 4 and to be in the mix come the end of the season. And if that's your ambition then the point is fine. It doesn't even matter that we've thrown away a really strong league position over the last 2 games.

And that sums up everything wrong with our manager.


1.) 30 Jan 2021 21:06:46
Says everything about his mentality. So out of his depth it’s unreal.

2.) 30 Jan 2021 21:15:38
We're simply managed by an average manager. Into his 3rd year and he has us playing some awful football. We win games in spite of him not because.

There is a good group of players in that squad. If a manager could get an extra 15/ 20% from them we could possibly challenge for silverware. We have a manager who has set us up to draw against every team in the top 8 so far this year.

He has been given more time than he deserves. He's a Man who know's his job is safe if we get top 4 and that is his only objective.

Ole is at the wheel driving well below the speed limit.

3.) 30 Jan 2021 22:32:14
I agree with that post entirely mumbles. Really well put and we are totally aligned in our thoughts.
We are playing football that stinks the place up.
We have been getting points recently and the results have been good but the foundations are built on quick sand.
4 semi finals and as you say all the big league games. These are games you have to go out to win not just hope to sit deep and nick it.
When we do push on and have more possession against teams that defend well we have no plan at all and hope to capitalise on the chances we create on the break. That is our only game plan so when teams don't leave that big space we are just playing off the cuff and play in hope. Its disjointed with no cohesion. We have ground down the weaker sides and beat them. Some of them quite well but not the best sides not the semi finals.
I see a squad capable of so much more. Of course there are weaknesses but there are any amount of vidhan that could have this squad playing a more expansive cohesive and entertaining game.
The next 2 games are crucial. I hope we are not seeing the beginning of another ole tail spin.
Everton were rubbish today and Southampton not much better so we are playing them at the right time with neither team at their best either. 6 points are essential a couple of draws for example and I fear for us for the rest of this season. Once the el kicks in it will get even more difficult.
Yourself myself and so many others have no faith in this manager. I go into every game with no expectation of being entertained or of winning. I go on hoping we win and most of the time when we do win as a fan i'm only partially satisfied.

4.) 30 Jan 2021 22:49:32
Mumbles has just summed things up, to a tee, surely any pro Ole arguments are wearing too thin now. Unfortunately, as he says top 4 will mean another year of this drivel. Settle in for years of drab football. I've had enough, don't think i will watch for a while and certainly won't pay anymore.

5.) 30 Jan 2021 22:51:21
Also totally agree with Ken for the umpteenth time.

6.) 30 Jan 2021 23:52:58
Ken, I always enjoy us winning games of football but as you said, it's built on quicksand. I have not seen an evolution of style or something we're aiming for. It's just very passive and aimless.

I think the manager has brought us as far as he can.

7.) 30 Jan 2021 23:53:44
Am waiting fod someone to call us "toxic" for voicing our opinions.

Agree with you both Ken and Mumbles

Ed 02 outlined and then detailed the structural problems at the Club two years ago. Hardly anything of real note has changed. Yes we have got rid of some deadwood and some better players in but fundamentally we are still a long way of being back on the perch.

This season both Liverpool and City have been missing some of their best players for long periods and we still cannot take advantage. Both will be even stronger next season.
Chelsea should be better under Tuchel too. So next year already looks like being a lot harder to do well. Even more so if the effect of C.V. has been mitigated by the vax programme. If that happens teams will have more time to rest between matches and the good coaches more time to make their teams even better and keep their best players fitter.

8.) 31 Jan 2021 00:05:00
you win nothing with clowns in charge.

9.) 31 Jan 2021 00:32:57
Good post mates. He is a Championship level manager until he proves otherwise. I keep asking people if they want the manager of Bodo Glimd who run away with the title this year breaking records but the answer is no. So why they want Ole? It is ridiculous that the only credential for having Ole is because he is "one of is" and "knows the United way". Inless, ofcourse, United way means that you park the bus against top 8 and playing for a draw.

10.) 31 Jan 2021 02:18:14
Agree with both mumbles and ken

The football is boring. The rotation every week is pointless.

11.) 31 Jan 2021 02:52:13
Over a year without a defeat away from home, don’t watch us anymore, I doubt the club will miss you. Ever heard of supporting through the good and the bad?

12.) 31 Jan 2021 07:56:32
Yeah guys, if you have anything negative to say just don't watch us anymore, the club won't miss you 🤦‍♂️

Come on GDS, . How about if you don't like the post, don't comment on it, no one there will miss you.

13.) 31 Jan 2021 08:33:00
Gds2, Asusual you dismiss someone who doesn't think like you. I have supported and spent ast amounts following U ited since mid 70,s, so I have done through good and bad. There is no longer any entertainment watching OLE'S boys. He sets up to not lose, he has no courage and it appears no belief that we can be challenging. Is it any wonder the players look lost. Anyway SirGDS2 I'm sorry I don't follow your gospel, but as many of your replies, you know nothing about the people you judge.

14.) 31 Jan 2021 09:14:17

17.) 31 Jan 2021 11:54:31
I think GDS answered to a post, where someone said that he won't watch United anymore. Which he is correct, if someone doesn't want to watch/ support United any longer, he won't be missed. So, he didn't tell that to all of you, who have differeny opinion, he wrote it as an answer to a poat. what's the point in all of you accusing him of anything, if you haven't noticed the post he answered to? Because he has different opinion?

About the game. I don't see us setting not to lose, we had our chances, we didn't take them. When McT got injured, we didn't bring on Matic, we brought Martial, more offensive player. We had more possesion, if it means anything. We had better chances (although chances in this match were very few on both sides) .

What I didn't like was that Rashford was subbed too late, he was pretty bad. I didn't like that we pass the ball back, when we have options to go forward (perhaps that is what you guys think when you say we set up deffensively) . And, in my opinion, some players just look tired and can't give their best.

{Ed047's Note - bringing on Martial is akin to bringing on a defender though in reality.

18.) 31 Jan 2021 12:20:55

Inhope literally said he won’t watch us anymore, I didn’t tell him not to, he said he didn’t want to.

19.) 31 Jan 2021 12:22:23

I’m used to it now mate but if I point it out I’m ‘playing the victim’ so I just let them crack on.

Just comment on a post without being an absolute melt.

20.) 31 Jan 2021 15:39:14
Actually GDS2, i said I've had enough of the drab football and don't think i will watch for a while. I didn't say i wouldn't still be a supporter or burn my shirt or anything. Instead of having a pop at posts you don't like just ring victim support.

Ed 😂 usually, I would agree, but he was better than Rashford last night. Perhaps better than some other players too. Maybe i'm wrong, but that's what I saw 😁.

24 Jan 2021 21:32:12
Mumbles' taking no prisoners on the scouse page. Love it!

I thought we did pretty well today, looked exciting going forward with my only real criticism being our method of playing out from the back which leads to all sorts of nervy moments.

A deserved win though, and one I thoroughly enjoyed.




08 Dec 2020 22:58:49
Here's a star for all you Ole apologists.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lost six of his 10 Champions League matches as a manager.

He is the first manager to lose six or more times in their first 10 games in the competition while in charge of an English side.


1.) 08 Dec 2020 23:22:38
Wow and the 4 wins i guess are psg twice rbl and istanbul. Dear oh dear.
Then you look at 9 away league wins on the bounce
Stats can be presented to make anything look good or bad but i know what i'm looking at now for 18 months and its not good.
4 of our league wins you can argue we didn't deserve to win them if you watched the full game on balance of play. Come back wins against brighton who hit the woodwork 3 times, Southampton and West ham who also hit woodwork and missed a few sitters. And a retaken late penalty win v west Brom.
You can expect maybe 2 or 3 wins like that in a season but most of ours are like that.
Beating city is now the focus. What system do we play what players what tactics what plan? Its anyone's guess but we live in hope.

2.) 09 Dec 2020 00:16:43
You can get that out of your head. We ain't going to beat City this weekend. Not with this atrocious defence. My comment might come back to bite me, but I doubt that highly. City are not wasteful like the other clubs we've come from behind to beat. If we play like that against City we could easily be 5-0 down before the end of the first half.

{Ed0666's Note - you could quite easily beat City. They are a shadow of the side they used to be,they are very beatable. Somebody on the Liverpool page called Balotelli all fur coat and no panties which exactly how I would describe City currently.

I really don't understand the profiteering thing.

I assume it means that the club can't extend the contract by the additional year just so they can sell the player and make a profit.

But if we did extend it and an offer came it, I assume we could still accept it.

Ed02, can you explain the concept in a bit more detail or perhaps point to another source worth reading?


{Ed002's Note - The concept is that you cannot extend to make money but if the player is sold the profit, or a negotiated profit, would go to him.}

I thought it odd initially that we had 4 central midfield players on the pitch, but having more creativity is exactly what we've needed on many occasions and this team manages it quite well without sacrificing our defensive stability.

It's effectively removing a useless forward (Martiall) and replacing him with a midfielder to we can have 2 dms and 2 creatives.

I like it a lot.
