    It was tongue in cheek....

  14. Bet Griezmann wish he joined Utd when we had a deal agreed. Gone from hero to hated his final game for Atlético was a disaster. Absolutely booed like crazy by the fans and some of his team mates where blanking him walking off.

  15. Fuck Griezmann. Biggest primadonna in football. Makes Di Maria look good.

    Barcelona also can't afford him right now. They need to offload players, and if Atletico want all the money up front, they will have to make sure they get paid up front

  17. FBs looking like an interesting one this Summer with Cancelo, AWB, Meunier all saying they will be staying next season.

    They can send Umtiti over to United. They should gladly pay 60m + his salary.

    Does he not have problems with injuries? Knees if I remember correclty?

    Just checked, yeah! Missed 31 games due to knee problems in last 2 seasons. Welp, thats the last thing United needs right now.

  21. MAN U. Very hot on young centre half Nathan Collins at STOKE. Darren Fletcher recommending strongly.


  22. https://youtu.be/z6koJAzKhIw Last interview with Ole after the Cardiff game if you have not seen it.

  23. De Gea wants 480k Pw from Ducker. Don’t let the door hit you mate. Thanks for your service if that’s the case.

    You really think that brands like Man U , Liverpool, City etc allow a 3rd party to decide the image that will be seen around the world? However much Addidas/Nike/Admiral or whoever pays them?

    Bit like Jaguar designing the engine and letting Vivien Westwood design the body.

    Don't be fooled, someone somewhere at OT will have a huge involvement in the design and branding of everything that carries the United branding - it's too valuable not to. Same with the other big clubs.

    Smaller deals with manufacturers (remember the Leicester 3rd kit?) will give the manufacturers more control/design freedom for 2nd or 3rd kits but the majot players will protect their brand come hell or high water.

    My mate works at Nike, this is very much how it goes down, give or take a club's specific negotiations

    We should be clear on something though, clubs mean nothing to the likes of Nike and Adidas.

    We make what, 75m a year of Adidas. They have a revenue of 22 BILLION.

    As big as we might feel we are in the sport, we're small compared to their global market.

    Please stop randomly posting stuff like this. At the very least, stick to the rumour thread with the first hand source. Not reddit, not twitter, the actual source

    Sorry was a quote from journo Alan Nixon. Has been good with lower league transfers and Daniel Taylor And Ducker like a lot of his tweets. But yes will keep it to the transfer Forum.

  28. Ghana Football reporting the man I've been begging for for months, Thomas Partey, is being seriously considered by United. Has a release clause under £50M.

    Please let it be fucking true. This is the man I want in our midfield. Aggressive, good defensively and adds more control as a whole. Would be an absolute steal

    AS and Marc’s day the release clause isn’t true just for last season?

    No chance. Nearly everyone saying he’s not a target and Ole ain’t interested.

    i hope youre right mate and yeah ive heard that utd sources say hes not on their radar

  33. Only been couple of days and I'm already sick of the transfer rumour mill. It's become insufferable. Same manager can be on his way out on Monday and about to sign a 10 year contract on Tuesday. Clubs are being "linked" with basically every human that is male and has two legs. It's a colossal waste of time following all this drivel.

    Think I'm just gonna disconnect from football news until August.

  35. Hope all the talk in Spain today about Mata staying after we offered him improved terms are true. Need players like him around atm. Also offers something different especially against teams in a low block. Also Mitten and Sky saying Dani James personal terms all agreed and just couple of things to finalise with Swansea. Good you exciting prospect and even though is one for the future he will bring something else that we lack. Genuine directness and blistering pace on the counter. And can actually cross!

    Oh and Mitten said on MUTV that FB is not so high on the priority list this Summer as Laird will be in the squad next season. Also mentioned TFM will get a chance under Ole on tour with Demi Mitchell. And he’s had talks with Pogba about being Captain next season and needing to start stepping up to the player he can be on a more consistent level. Few more reporting the same this morning regarding Pogba and the Captaincy.

    Also said after the Cardiff game Ole made them stay behind and gave the whole dressing room a right bollocking and said they have not been good enough or fit enough to wear the badge and need to start being a team on and off the pitch.

  36. Congrats to Dylan Levitt going to be called up the the Welsh first team for there next fixtures

  37. Daniel James highlights vs City in the cup https://youtu.be/XKK7MGK4yCk

  38. So Chelsea seem to be hiring Cech as per Sky. Lyon has hired Juninho. Arsenal are closing in on Edu. All in the roles of DOF or Sporting director.

    I can sense a pattern developing here.

  46. Ricky Sbragia been sacked by Utd. No surprise there!


    #MUFC Under-23s boss Ricky Sbragia has left the club. Nicky Butt will oversee a structural review of the academy this summer


    Nicky Butts done a fantastic job with our academy getting it to where it is now.

  47. Highlights of new signing Groenen https://twitter.com/hunter_mufc/stat...846823424?s=21

  48. Lots of Utd need today.

    So, despite finishing sixth, @ManUtd sold all 52,000 season tickets for next term in quickest time. 75,000 (I have checked this figure) on waiting list.

    She's a good player. One of the few women I do enjoy watching for their creativity and technique.
