Manchester United Discussion

220px-Manchester_United_FC_crest.svg.png

Manchester United Football Club is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, that competes in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. Nicknamed "the Red Devils", the club was founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to its current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910.

Manchester United have won a record 20 League Titles, a joint-record 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups and a record 21 FA Community Shields. The club has also won three European Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998–99, the club became the first in the history of English football to achieve the treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. 

The 1958 Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight players. In 1968, under the management of Matt Busby, Manchester United became the first English football club to win the European Cup. Alex Ferguson won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups and 2 UEFA Champions Leagues, between 1986 and 2013, when he announced his retirement. José Mourinho is the club's current manager, having been appointed on 27 May 2016.

Slow and steady at the moment. We still look like doing nothing in various matches though. We should smack Bournemouth of the park today (no offence to them), but man for man all over the park we're better. However, i feel we just don't look interested at times with the exception of Ibrahimovic, Carrick and Rashford. 

 

Also, I'm sick of being fucking 6th :(

I've laughed and taken the piss (as you do) about United being sixth but the realisation is that at one point we were 12 points clear of you lot and now you are a game in hand away from going above us. As you say, steady consistency without being brilliant has been the key. 

I will say though, how wrong was I about Zlatan? Jesus Christ the man is a beast! Makes you wonder where the fuck United would be this season without him?

You're not the only one mate. I'd seen him twice at OT and thought he was wank. Big time Charlie that constantly went missing. However, he's doing the business for us. Just think what could have been had he been here a few years earlier.....

I saw a stat that showed he runs less than any other player in the Premiere League which just enhances how good he actually is. His ability to find space in the box is uncanny and his technique is something else. 

Gary Neville said the other night that Ibra is literally carrying United this season and I have to say he's not far wrong. 

Outstanding player.

You are on course to finish the way Ancelotti did back in 2011, and he got the sack for it.

That Russian just likes sacking people and that's why you have been a jo-jo team up and down the table, we are alot more stable, building for the future. if you lose to us at the bridge the gaps 5pts (if we dont drop any pts) or less if you slip up before then  ..it's not over yet ;)

You face Arsenal and Liverpool right before our match. Still an 8 point gap by then would be gracious. 

Pep has never beaten us, and with your back line, Costa will  be licking his lips i'd imagine. :P

It's make or break for us now, we play 2 games a week this month and have to go through Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea with an away CL game and FA cup game in between  ...IF we come through that with 9 league points, it's on like donkey kong!!  ..if we don't, it's off again xD

 

P.s Costa would struggle for a place on our bench, it's you that should be more worried about our attack, S.A.S is the fastest front 3 in the world ;)

Zlatan and Jose are two peas in a pod. That definitely helps out.

Outstanding player. 

He's an outstanding player but he puts the team at a disadvantage because he doesn't make runs... Pogba has got long passes but he can't play in those passes behind opposition defence because Zlatan doesn't make runs... and our wingers usually have to wait for him to get into the box and one more thing, Zlatan is absolutely useless outside the box, his link up play is very bad.

Mourinho used his post-match press conference to again complain about his side's crammed fixture list, and Keane raged that he was ‘sick to the death’ of the manager’s moans.

The Portuguese said United's run of games, which will see them play on Monday, Thursday and Sunday this week, proves the club have ‘lots of enemies’.

But Keane was enraged by the boss’ claims, with the ITV pundit saying: "I've never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage?

"It's just utter nonsense what he's talking about. He's manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet. The squad he's got, the players, and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.

"We were just looking at some of the cup draws they've had. They've had an easy ride in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws. The guy's talking absolute nonsense. I've never heard so much rubbish in my life.

Keane believes Mourinho’s seemingly constant moans about the club’s ‘enemies’ shows he can’t handle to pressure in the Old Trafford hotseat.

"Maybe the club's too big for him,” added the former United star.

“He can't deal with all these demands at the match, what matches? Man United reserves could have won that game tonight. I'm sick to death of him."

Defender Marcos Rojo also appeared to be running on empty and was seen eating a banana passed to him by Ashley Young in the second half in a bid to increase his energy levels.

But Keane believes that was all for show.

"He's talking about the player collapsing," Keane added. "That was easier than a training session - 11 v 11 on the training pitch, that was easier than that.

"And he's talking about players collapsing. What rubbish. I've seen players maybe get Jaffa Cakes passed onto the pitch, so I wasn't surprised a player was looking for some sort of food but I think they made a bigger drama than what it was.

"He's got other staff. One of the fitness coaches could have come on with that, the medical staff. He's passing it on to Ashley Young, he's passing it on. I think that was all staged, without a shadow of a doubt."

Keane was absolutely spot on - I can't believe anyone can be bothered with The Dull One's tedious whinging any more. Oh boo fucking hoo, three games in a week, bore off.

It's truly refreshing to see someone in football not have their tongue firmly lodged up Mourinho's arse.

This is the issue with mourinho. He needs to find a new way to motivate his players than conspiracy theories.

Ajax starlet Daishawn Redan, coveted by several of Europe's top clubs, has decided not to sign a professional deal at the club.

The 16-year-old, who is a target for Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as clubs outside of England, could now spark a battle for his signature.

Redan has been at Ajax since he was just eight years old, and is a prolific goalscorer at youth level.

But it seems as though he will now continue his development elsewhere, with a move to a Premier League academy a real possibility, although PSG and RB Leipzig are also reported to have an interest. 

'We have mapped out a path for him and there is depth discussions with him and his management,' said Ajax youth coach Said Ouaali. 

'That there is no agreement at the last moment is extremely regrettable, obviously they have put something else on their minds.

'We have made every effort to maintain a great talent as Daishawn for the club but at some point it stops. We wish him all the best with the rest of his career.'

A prolific goalscorer who can play up front or cutting in from the left, Redan has already featured for Ajax's U19 side, and played for Holland's U17 outfit last week, scoring one goal and making another against Italy. 

He is a fluent English and Spanish speaker and twice scored more than 40 goals in a single season for Ajax's youth sides.  


 


Another very good promising talent gone again from Holland :(    when will it ever stop!

Is it therefore vital that he stays for another year? 

No because United will spend another £300m this summer.

Shaw has shown zero commitment even under LVG and the kid has got massive potential, rarely gets beaten when playing.
