The Manchester United thread


Recommended Posts

United in for Sanchez apparently. Still think he will go to City, there’s a title medal waiting for him there if he makes the move now. 

But if he wants the challenge of playing for (commercially at least) the biggest club in the world then he might yet opt for Stretford ahead of Eastlands. Just pay him a percentage of shirt sales forecasts for either club and then it’s an easy decision!

anyone (other than Busstop) remember james Wilson - he Is in Man U's premier league squad even though he hasn't played a game in 3 years! well they just loaned him to Sheff Utd - he apparently played for brighton in 2016 but has just been collecting a paycheck the past 2 seasons - nice work if you can get it

Yeah, that kid had a huge amount of potential but doesn't appear to have kicked on as much as he should have. For every Rashford there are another 3 who get close and another 20 who get nowhere near - waiting to see which way it goes McTominay.

Chelski, and then Citeh, have ruined the prospects for so many talented kids in the last decade.

How's that? Do you mean English talented kids? Because City has a ton of talented kids, Jesus, Sane, Sterling, Foden, Diaz, and so on.

How many are academy graduates? In fact, how many academy graduates have become regular first team players at  Citeh in the last few years?

And how many academy graduates have become regular first team players at  Chelski in the last few years?

They both just  buy proven players at inflated prices, which has led to other clubs doing the same to keep up.

Still, Utd have had an academy graduate in the match day squad for every game since 1938.

And as nobody ever credits Mourinho in this respect, his handling of Lingard has been brilliant. After his shocking open goal miss which cost us the win at Leicester over Xmas, he challenged him to learn from his “childish” error and dropped him to the bench.

His response has been to score in virtually every game since. Every one an absolute cracker as well.

Yep, money bags City can't compete with the smaller club in Manchester over money issues!

They can, but only if Sheik Sugar-Daddy bends them over and anally inserts the cash as usual :)

Loving Tony Martial’s progress this season. Another player Jose challenged to do better last season has responded in the way he wanted. And he’s only just turned 22. 

Plenty of pace and power up front now when Sanchez arrives. Looking really strong at the back as well, and if Pogba remains fit we should do well in the three competitions.

Evil One has lost the base of the League Cup - probably had it melted down! and sold it

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/manchester-united-left-red-faced-11884759

Someone from Citeh probably stole it.........Sheik Ya-Kash had a huge trophy cabinet built but they have less trophies than Utd have PL titles :D:D

And............it appears Alexis Sanchez will be turning out for the biggest team in Manchester (also England & arguably the world :) ) in the FA Cup next week.

 

Possibly another Cantona moment!!

Depressing news for the ABU’s who are desperate for us to fail for the next three or four seasons.

Oh yeh, easy.......and they even earned it all as well!!

I suspect they knew this would happen (they bloody should have cos I did!!) and will have made plans.

A few others will need a few more quid as welll :)

Shirt sales will cover a lot of it :)

I hope Pogba demands higher wages and signs a new 6 year contract. Need to keep him here for as many years as possible.

Yes, he inspired Arsenal to such great heights during his time there.

Well, a goal every other game & two FA Cups.............and best Arse player in years.

 

And Liverpool players?

: Mané - 1 in 2 1/2. Not won anything since  Austrian cup in 2014.

: Firminho - 1 in 3. Never won anything!

: Salah - 1 in 1.25 games. Has medals from Chelski but hardly played.

: Sturridge - almost 1 in 2. Won stuff with Chelski, nothing since. Injured more than not, looking to leave.

: Couthinho - 1 in 4. Has a couple of medals with Inter about 8 years ago. Left to try and win something.

:Lallana - 1 in 5. Won a (very) minor trophy with Southampton 8 years ago.

: Danny Ings - HaHaHaHa Ha :)

 

Lots of style, no substance.

You were saying??
