Big worry if Dave the Save is now reluctant to sign a new contract as is widely reported - can only think PSG would be viable destination today.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 17:54:35
Real Madrid could still be a serious option. Navas isn't getting any younger and Coutois hasn't been great since the move. They could easily go back in for DDG either on a free or below his true worth when he only has a year left on his contact.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 08:42:24
Why would DDG sign a new contract?
We don't know where we are going.

He will be a huge loss if he leaves. But the way things are, I don't see any top player staying if given a chance to leave!

3.) 09 Oct 2018 09:45:13
Don’t see where DDG goes, Real are ok, Barcelona too, maybe Bayern or PSG but less competitive leagues, anywhere else even if we aren’t on top atm is a backward step.

4.) 09 Oct 2018 10:34:36
If he left who could blame him?
Probably the best keeper in world football for about 6 seasons now and what’s he got to show for it
If he’d got his move to Real Madrid he’d have a couple of CL winners medals in his back pocket . The way things look for us it’s hard to see us seriously challenging for league or CL for a couple of seasons at the very least.

5.) 09 Oct 2018 14:54:01
Juventus have Szczesny in goal. I appreciate he misses Spain, but that screams out at me.

Ultimately he has been a great player for us, not one of our fans should have any hard feelings if he leaves. He signed for a great club, he now plays for a club I barely recognise.

Wouldn't mind a little swapsy with Athletico for Oblak.

6.) 10 Oct 2018 19:41:05
As I understand it the contract is almost done, but he wants a clause that states he won't ever be used as a center back.



04 Aug 2018 20:56:27
Several reports saying TFM going out on loan to Hertha Berlin.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Would be a shame as would have like to have seen him get more minutes. Especially with Valencia out and Dalot an unknown quantity. Hope this doesn’t mean darmian won’t be moved on. Guess we will have to wait and see how this pans out.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 22:11:30
Surely means a Darmian is staying now. The Italian international could be a revelation in a 3-5-2, or indeed at right back used properly.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 04 Aug 2018 22:24:11
Intersting Ed. Darmian def leaving then.

Very, very busy time coming up with ins and outs.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 04:08:03
Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 07:40:55
With darmian likely leaving and dalot and valencia injured i'm guessing we'll have to play tuanzebe lindeloff at right back?

6.) 05 Aug 2018 07:41:40
Darmian will go to Italy so there is still plenty of time to shift him out as the deadline only changed in the prem.

We may use him the first couple of games whilst we wait on Valencia and Dalot and then sell him.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 07:59:40
If a LB is signed, then we may even see Young shifted to the right with Shaw and the new LB on the left. Final few days may be exciting and nerve wrecking. Checking the sites every 15-20 mins.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 09:22:37
We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.

9.) 05 Aug 2018 15:39:02
Personally I’d keep Smalling and sell rojo and add Toby. Job done at centre half.

Still think we need a real left back more than a right forward if we are to make another purchase.

If Pogba leaves we will most definitely need to replace him too.



13 May 2018 14:16:43
Whats all this about Martial . with the squad at 12,00 today, then drove off apparently . not in squad at all now. Toys out the pram? genuine reason for leaving? interesting.


1.) 13 May 2018 14:41:06
He is injured.

2.) 13 May 2018 14:43:24
MUTV saying it's an injury.

3.) 13 May 2018 15:55:12
Carricks last game, last game of the season and he is not in the stands, not going to be on the pitch with the others at the end of the season? Cannot see it as an injury myself.

4.) 13 May 2018 16:31:59
If he's thrown a strop he can go. Sick of time wasters and bottle jobs.

5.) 13 May 2018 17:04:23
Wasn't pictured at training Friday didn't arrive with the squad today .
Or so it was reported.

6.) 13 May 2018 18:05:09
Rumours his missus went into labour.

7.) 13 May 2018 18:18:29
If he was injured he’s at his own stadium, doubt it was that urgent he couldn’t be with the squad.

8.) 13 May 2018 19:26:43
I m making a wild guess that Jose want Justine Klubeirt and so he is driving Martial Out. he is making sure things stay in a way that he surely leaves.
Now I m not saying what type of decision it could be.
But just a guess.

9.) 14 May 2018 13:56:18
Is that Justin's sister?

10.) 14 May 2018 17:51:38
GDS, it's the name he goes by every other Saturday night in that club you love in Amsterdam. Lol.

11.) 14 May 2018 18:19:01
He’s not good enough to acting like a diva. bring in Bale and flog him if he’s playing up.

I’d love to see him work out, but under Jose it’s just not going to happen for him and not sure he has the fight to play for us. Shame.

12.) 15 May 2018 23:59:44
Martial needs to move on for the benefit of his career. Another expensive Depay. Loads of hype. Again don't think he a talented as people make him out. I see a guy that's pretty inconsistent.



20 Jan 2018 22:51:23
Back page of "the sun" journo called Nixon writing that Wenger asked about Luke Shaw during Sanchez negotiations and was told no way.




15 Aug 2017 10:22:21
Couple of media outlets in France including L"equipe reporting today Aurier is going to Spurs .


1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:09:16
Don't think that's the worst thing in the World. Is not a very bright man, that comes across very arrogant and disruptive. Decent enough player, but that doesn't make up for the baggage he comes with.

Lucky for us I don't think it's an area we are truly desperate to sort out. I think Valencia will be first choice and despite his critics I do like Darmian and rb is his best position. You can't beat having an Italian defender when you need to defend.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 15:12:04
Bear, have to disagree there.

Aurier is not without his issues but I think Jose will know how to handle him. RB is an area we need to strengthen. Tony V has done a great job filling in but can't play 60 games a season there. Aurier is (allegedly) available for a decent price and is an upgrade on Darmian and Tuanzebe, possibly on Tony V, too.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:36
Ed002 said in recent sharkopod Aurier will likely join, doesn't see why he won't, he agreed to join Inter and Juve per reports too.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 15:31:44
All correct was agree in full.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 16:48:14
I wonder if peoples tune changes if he was coming to us:)

6.) 15 Aug 2017 17:46:07
Massive upgrade at right back for us, but also a massive tool. We shall see where ends up.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 20:08:23
I though the ed said it was a deal that could be done as the player was available .
Is he really a massive upgrade at RB?
Do people think Jose is going to drop Tony?

8.) 16 Aug 2017 08:25:01
Tony is 32 and has a niggling knee injury that may cause issues this season. I'd go all out and get him, and use Darmian / Shaw / maybe Blind at left back this season.

Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan him but he can't do it all season alone and our system relies on fit full backs overlapping.

We talk about youngsters a lot on here filling in but this season we need to go for the title. If they are good enough they'll get a game. If not, we will buy replacements.

9.) 16 Aug 2017 12:12:55
Eric but Tony will be first choice and play most the games do you think aurier would come to sit on the bench .
Or do you see Jose dropping Tony?

No football to watch has given me a bit of time to spend chatting to the Mrs -I was quite surprised when she told me she wasn't working at Woolworths anymore.


1.) 18 Mar 2020 09:16:29
Surprised she was still there BFB!



04 Feb 2020 17:05:35
I listened to the podcast on MEN earlier, to be honest I listen to it most months -its all opinions no matter where you get your news-they are all as bad as each other . Point is all 3 of them were very very down on Ole -usually they have something positive to say but not today . Ole got it the coaching staff got it big time and of course Woodward .

I ve always believed once the press lose whatever faith they had, rightly or wrongly is can build up a head of steam that has consequences for the manager.


1.) 04 Feb 2020 19:48:49
Let’s hope so. The “Cold Trafford” headline in the MEN signalled the start of the downfall of Sexton.

2.) 04 Feb 2020 23:03:43
Ole is doing the job he's been hired to do, basically to be the permanent interim manager until the dead wood has been cleared out, the table set, and the next real manager identified and contracted. Down on him or not, nothing will be served by firing him and simply appointing someone else.

3.) 05 Feb 2020 06:19:22
Shawthing, if we had a decent manager in there, we could possibly make top 4. So plenty to be served.

{Ed047's Note - they’ll probably bin Ole then have Carrick as caretaker till end of season with Phelan as his coach. Tragic.

4.) 05 Feb 2020 10:29:52
Shaw. Was ole hired to take us to mid table?

5.) 05 Feb 2020 12:00:11
I know everyone is feeling down about the club at the moment. But do you trust the decision makers or "amateurs" as they are affectionately known to make the right decision with the next manager?

How many times are the fans going to keep demanding the reset button be hit halfway through a rebuild?

6.) 05 Feb 2020 12:25:44
Thats my point too Shappy.
We never know if the club will look to bring in Unai Emery or Big Sam or Marco Silva.
The decision makers have made blunders after blunder in managerial appontments post SAF.
The very first step however would be to fix the structure.

Get a top DoF, plan a good sporting project and revamp the recruiting.

7.) 05 Feb 2020 12:51:21
We need new owners that want to invest in the infrastructure as well as the squad. We need a new management structure including a DOF, and then we new a new manager and coaches. That is a lot of new faces without even looking at the playing staff. So much to do.

8.) 05 Feb 2020 13:46:29
The shoe the shoe, we should follow the shoe!

9.) 05 Feb 2020 14:01:43
Angelred. So, who do you have in mind? They must be available now, in mid season, and want the job. Are you going to be limited to selecting someone who is currently managing a team not contending for honors in their own country or in Europe?

Ken. I made my point. I think the club views Ole as a longer term interim manager. If he succeeds, great, they will then be faced with an easier problem, one based on success rather than continued failure, but to imagine they aren't aware of his shortcomings, is a little bit beyond their customary level of blindness.

The club has been badly managed from a footballing point of view. Given their past incompetence, there is no guarantee that anything they do in the future will lead to right. But be that as it may, the club is now in a position where firing another manager is probably going to do more damage than good.

For this season at least they have to stick with Ole.

10.) 05 Feb 2020 07:20:29
Please Ed047 tell me you're joking. right?

{Ed047's Note - yes scooby I was but you know what they say, many a true word spoken in jest! 😜

11.) 05 Feb 2020 09:28:30
Jesus ed. Please don't even joke.

{Ed047's Note - sorry angel, the thought just came to me!

12.) 05 Feb 2020 14:23:25
Failure is relative. If the club hired Ole to win the league then yeah, he's failing rather spectacularly.

However, if the club hired Ole to change the atmosphere around the club, clear out the players that need to go and to blood the younger players then is he failing? It's harder to say he is.

Unless you know the thinking behind hiring Ole then you can't say if he is failing that remit or not.

Maybe the club haven't fired him because he is doing well with managing off field issues that the club wanted him to handle when they hired him.

13.) 05 Feb 2020 15:36:25
He's failing at whatever he is trying to achieve shappy. It's pretty depressing to watch and as ed002 has covered, he hasn't got a clue unfortunately.

14.) 05 Feb 2020 22:13:59
So, Shappy Gunnar Solskjaer is out there again, “Maybe the club think Ole is doing well managing off field issues”

That should be a DOF, OGS is failing miserably in what the role is about, performance on the pitch.

15.) 06 Feb 2020 07:20:06
Redman you can't argue with bolloxology like that. All in his head😂😂.



01 Feb 2020 17:19:51
on 8 occasions this season when Chelsea have dropped points United have not been able to take advantage . now they have drawn today.9th time lucky tonight?

Lets hope so, Bruno!


1.) 01 Feb 2020 19:12:33
This is awful I'm sorry but many chances is martial gonae get I'm up for selling him in the summer and spending it on a world class striker he gives absolutely nothing so lazy.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 19:35:12
well,9 times it is-9 times Chelsea drop points and we do too.

Severely lacking in leaders, no one able to inject any sense of urgency -its as if we don't want or don't believe we are a top 4 side -what a boost that would give the club, instead we just plod along. a top 6 side at best. injuries or not

2 home games now Burnley and Wolves whereby 2 good performances and we could be top 4 -never mind the other games - If Spurs/ Chelsea/ Arsenal get their acts together we are looking at top 8.

3.) 01 Feb 2020 22:12:16
We’re rubbish, it’s as simple as that. We’ve got players, coaching staff, board members and owners all devoid of ideas.
I’m sick of seeing the same players week in week out doing the same stuff. Perreira is shocking, Martial is not a no.9, Lingard shouldn’t be near our squad, Lindelof is average at best and Ole has no idea when a team defends against his counter attack bull system.

4.) 01 Feb 2020 23:17:39
it stops with the manager. just woefully out of his depth. we need a goal and waits untill 4 mins to go to make other subs. he might get away with it at molde but not against good sides. he was just scared of loosing. i never thought i would say that about old trafford shocking.



29 Jan 2020 07:31:55
Anyone who has ever driven a taxi will undoubtedly will have stories of regular drunks, time wasters, cancelled fares, runners etc etc .

Imagine how the pilot of that plane feels now he is apparently on his way to collect Bruno. again. according to the Daily Mail, Daily Star.
" Martin to despatch. are you sure Maureen I've been hanging on since august . he's a time waster"

Despatch to Martin "just do it Martin, give him 15 minutes and call in if he's a no show, got another pick up for you in Heathrow".




28 Jan 2020 19:24:41
I know a lot of you rate Leicesters Ndidi very highly and Kante before him. Interested to see Leicester have made a bid around 14 million quid for Brest teenager Diallo -apparently a really dynamic defensive box to box player they got from Monaco who is doing very well this season.

Im not trying to link either of them to UTD but it strikes me if the kid joins them and is anywhere as good as Ndidi or Kante then Leicester have got someone on their books who can spot a player- or at least a certain type of player for clever money -wonder how he would compare in 18 months time if he joins Leicester to 60 MILL Declan Rice.

Whatever happens I cannot be the only who remembers the comments in the MEN last summer at the end of the transfer window that UTD didn't move for Bruno Fernandes as the feeling from the coaches/ scouts was he gave the ball away a lot in dangerous areas . strange turnaround now.

In a European League there will be "no away fans" it will be like American sport . NY yankees can fill their stadium twice over for a game but how many of those fans then go to the next game in Texas? that's why if you watch a PL game in an American bar they love seeing it e.g Arsenal v Utd, a full stadium both sets of fans singing etc etc . I think it will actually kill a lot of interest in the game -EL games were a big thing once it becomes routine to see the big names and big teams then it loses something . let's be honest, if UTD, Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Celtic were in a European league would any of them finish top 6, you just become a mid table team.

my ex colleague who worked in a lab for 15 years in various pharmaceutical labs in the Nordic countries tells me he doesn't think a vaccine will be found possibly ever as the C.V. mutates differently to other viruses. More likely will be a drug or combination of drugs that reduces the symptoms down to a serious cough-that could affect people by leaving them needing a lifetime of treatment, inhalers etc etc but not kill them.

I live in Czech Republic and have found the isolation very hard. I live on my own in an apartment. The measures taken were harsh starting 3 weeks ago. borders closed, pubs etc closed down, day by day new measures. masks to go on public transport. then masks just to go outside. then no going outside if possible . then reducing to not meeting more than 1 other person .

if necessary . army on the streets . only 8 deaths and 1800 cases . polls show 92% of population support the measures but the not being able to go out messes with your head . looking forward to a trip new NYC in May but cancelled of course. one thing we don't have is this panic buying. supermarkets relatively full . the toilet roll thing is seen as a joke here . no one buys more than usual. Until it happens to you then its hard to put into words what its like. empty streets day after day, no noise, no chatter no hustle and bustle -I live in a city centre. Anyway. depressed myself now. stay safe one and all.

I can't be the only who read last summer the club were concerned Bruno gives the ball away a lot so it put them off him? Anyway, he did well and with a few better players around him who can give him cover then just let him do his things decent debut -looks classy.

I remember the story (told by Harry Redknapp) of SAF being very interested in a young Gareth Bale and speaking to Harry Redknapp about him . Rednapp said "you don't need another full back " and SAF says "well, he isn't a full back" I can see the same thing in Dalot - not saying he is as good of course - i'm no tactician I know little about formations but I don't see how a right footed Dalot with his attacking and defensive set would be a worse choice than Perria or Lingard or Chong in front of Win Bissaka

I hope there are 4 players -no less- lined up to walk into our team in the summer, no matter who the manager is as its becoming more and more apparent that a rebuild is one thing . a slow rebuild is quite another.
