  1. Roy Keane

    I think it's near impossible to keep things quiet/in-house now, especially at United. Imagine if that happened to Pogba, his greaseball agent would be on sky sports news ASAP.
  2. Roy Keane

    Could you imagine the uproar on social media if that happened now? Jesus the Keane stories just keep on giving. What I wouldn't give for Keane to get a hold of Martial and Pogba right now. Not anti French just anti lazy before anyone calls me out.
  3. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Yes there's no doubt that the glazers have spent money but it's been utterly wasted by some desperate overpayment on players bought for huge sums of money and contracts handed out to utter dross like Jones and Rojo. We're a hugely successful business for the glazers and that's why they're...
  4. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Completely agree with all of that. Truth is, we're absolutely doomed to failure no matter who the manager is, it's as obvious as night and day. Club is a complete shambles on the actual bit they need to be good at, ie; football side of things. I'm sure other clubs fans think we're a spoilt...
  5. Diallo vs Pellistri

    I've watched videos of both and I'm cautiously optimistic that both will turn out to be cracking players for us, maybe not straight away but in the next couple of years. Diallo looks electric but it has to be remembered that he's playing against youth teams while Pellistri has lovely ball...
  6. United's youth recruitment of late

    It obviously makes good business sense to acquire the best young talents, for small fees or compensation, Hannibal aside of course! But as other posters have pointed out it's not really anything new to Man United. I remember when we signed Andreas Pereira and the hype around him at the time was...
  7. Transfer Tweets - 2020/21 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    I got the trial but I found it very underwhelming to be honest. I follow a lot of the football writers on twitter and many of them moved from various newspapers to the Athletic once it entered the UK market so I was a little bit curious to see what the standard was like. Twitter headlines make...
  8. Greenwood to wear #11 next season

    Obviously Greenwood and Foden are in the spotlight and worshipped by thousands but come on lads, they're only kids, and kids make mistakes aplenty. I'd like to see those of ye on your high horse if it was yourselves in their situation.
  9. Timothy Fosu-Mensah | 2019/20 Performances
    Threadmarks: Man Utd 2:1 LASK

    I remember his debut season under Van Gaal and thinking this kid is going to be a beast of a player, quick, powerful and tenacious. Tonight just proved how 2 bad loan spells and a serious knee injury have destroyed his chance of making it for a top top club. He's so far from where he should be...
  10. Unpopular opinion - Daniel James is not very good

    He's a speed merchant who's not very good at football, a little like Usain Bolt! His technique is awful, as is his passing and his final ball takes the absolute biscuit. He was a gamble that hasn't paid off and I don't think he ever will, even as a squad player he doesn't offer enough.
  11. Dean Henderson has to be our #1 next season? Poll added

    I must admit that I haven't seen much of Henderson so can't comment with much credibility but he strikes me as a guy who is supremely confident (from interviews) and won't be willing to come back and fight it out for the jersey with DDG. I believe he thinks he's above that and will want...
  12. Paul Pogba | 2019/20 Performances

    I'm sure most of us thought the same about Henderson and Wijnaldum? I know I did, a good system goes further than individual abilities.
  13. Paul Pogba | Back in full training

    That incident sums up his Manchester United career, he won't take one for the team. Anyone who's going to defend him after that absolute abomination needs to realise that to reach the top of the league you need all players willing to put their head where it hurts, sickening to see the coward...
  14. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    I don't think our manager is Ferguson in disguise by any stretch of the imagination but he hasn't been helped by some atrocious goalkeeping, not for the first time this past 2 seasons. If he doesn't drop him now then I believe he'll have shown a serious weakness
  15. Aaron Wan-Bissaka | 2019/20 Performances

    He's missed quite a bit of football the past couple of years and who knows how badly that could affect his career going forward. I haven't seen him much myself but I have read that he's very highly rated. Maybe next season he'll get a chance to show what he can do and we might have a bit of...
