if De Gea has any ambition he should leave for a bigger club.


Know you're only fishing but there aren't many "bigger" by any measure. If you said something about "in contention for the major prizes" it might resonate more.

Tongue in cheek of course but United these days are only big commercially, they are not UCL or EPL contenders, 5 years since EPL and 10 years since UCL.


Did you not hear though....it's all going to come together next season.  ;D

Liverpool fan!!!

Luke Shaw looking in tip top shape in holiday Inn Ibiza. Pre-season, wherever it is, is going to be awful for him.

Fellaini staying apparently. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

If he's happy being a squad player then its a no brainer.

I would have thought the big lad would have moved on to get more football and personally still think he might.

Always liked Blind as player, great professional.

Played out of position for pretty much his whole United career. Good luck to him.

Transfer wise we've not not done enough so far, can't believe we've not signed a left back, its beyond a joke.

I'd be content will letting Martial leave as long as someone like Perisic came in. One of the reasons I'd imagine United are prepared to let him go is some of the attacking talent we've got coming through. Good to see Mason Greenwood get some game time, he's even a better prospect then Angel Gomes. A mate knows one of the youth coaches at United who's been split his time coaching between both City & United the last 15 years and he says Greenwood is easily the best youngster either club have produced in that time.

Any truth in the Maguire rumours? Could be a new most expensive defender in the world

The World Cup has not been kind to United with the performances of their players being very ordinary, which is what Utd looked like last year.

Based on WC:
De Gea - Very average
Young - Steady/reliable/boring
Smalling/Mata/Herrera - didn't even make it to WC
Jones/Martial/Rashford - Couldn't get starting for their national team
Lingard - Just exactly what does he do on a football field, apart from waste chances?
Matic - Steady/Boring
Lukaku - Very poor form especially in big matches
Fellaini - had a good enough world cup, but only makes a mark when brought on as an impact sub.
Teams seem to be able to deal with him when he starts.
Rojo - Part of a disaster of an Argentina side. Being touted as part of the deal to bring Maguire to OT, so can't be that well thought of.

Two players at teams who didn't make it to the WC -  Bailly (constantly injured) and Sanchez (shocking loss of form)

IMO, only Pogba looked anything like a world class player at the tournament.

And now, the great white hype of the English media, Maguire, is set to join them for 80m!

2018/19 looking very boring already; where is the spark going to come from? - I hope I'm wrong.

BBB, Matic - steady/boring about sums up United. As for De Gea very average, that's being very kind.

Scores some good and important goals.
