    Lost 2.1 v city.

    United were dreadful in the first half and let them score 2 goals. Second half was one of the best games of football that I have seen in years.

    After spending the entire summer fanboying over him it was fecking awesome to see Pogba score his first United goal. He got man of the match and played brilliantly.

    I could tell live that this was a great goal, but without a replay I didn't realise just how bloody impressive it was...

    England fired Big Sam today. His dream job and he only got 1 game. I understand why they did it but I cant help feeling bad for him

    Many people say the view on tv is always better than in any stadium. I disagree.

    It took a lot longer than expected but the Milan youth movement is starting to work with Niang,Suso,Locatelli, De Sciglio, Calabria and of course Donnarumma.

    Of course funny enough 2 guys who were hyped insanely as youths in Simone Verdi and Andrea Petagna have started to play very well after being sold and could be brought back. Now all we need is Hachim Mastour to develop

    Good to see that we are finally starting to give the 'weaker' teams a spanking. Our problem was always that we would get a heroic win v England or Spain then fly home to Belfast and **** up against Iceland -_-

    Jurgen Klinnsman fired. It was time honestly. While I know MLS isn't a top league in the world his open contempt for it and the US players deciding to play there was eventually gonna cost him... and he tactically isn't the greatest or flexible

    8 wins in a row - first time since 2009. Jose is finally starting to figure this squad out

    Pogba has been shamelessly flirting with Griezmann (who is a United fan) for weeks - that would be a decent signing :lol: interesting thing is he has a release clause, if he really wants to come we can just sign him, but it would probably break another world record :idk:

    One of the best parts of this long unbeaten run has been watching Phil Jones start to turn his career around. He is playing well and getting a run of games without getting injured for the first time in many years. We nearly gave up and let him leave last summer.

    When we signed him Fergie said Jones reminded him of Duncan Edwards (****ing high praise - he would have been an all time world great but he was killed in the Munich Air Crash) and openly told the Media that Jones could end up being the best player in United history.

    Then this happened :idk:

    Qualified for the league cup final. Doing fine in the FA cup with an easy game v Blackburn coming up and we thrashed Saint-Étienne last night so advancing to the next round of the Europa league is all but guaranteed after the first leg. Playing in all these smaller competitions is going to end up having an impact on our league form.

    A late season run in the champions season is the dream. A late season run in the europa league that leaves players tired for the next game? meh

    We aren't playing well ... but we are on a 22 game unbeaten run in the Premier League, won the league cup, should make the Europa League Semi final and just thumped the league leaders. :idk: but we still aren't close to good enough. Odd season

    Herrera (a player that I adore) marked Hazard out of the game yesterday. He took it really ****ing seriously :lol:

    Finally Milan has new owners and a staff that is not bargain shopping. Likely going to end up the transfer windlw with Morata, Rodriguez, Mussachio, Conti, and Kessie

    Id like Morata at United but apparantly his girlfriend is dead set on going home to Italy. I actually respect him for going along with that.


    Quite sickened atm, the Griezmann deal was all but done, his sponsors were already wokring on new adverts.... then the Athletico transfer ban gets upheld and the deals off. They cant replace him and he doesnt want to leave them in the lurch -_- bloody hope it is done next summer

    Apparantly we are close to signing Ivan Perisic from Inter. I know nothing about him but an awful lot of United fans are very unhappy about it. Jose has a record of using non fancied winfers like Willian tho so idk.

    Up front we are being linked to Lukaku, Bellotti (from Torino) and Lacazette from Lyon. Everton want £100m for Lukaku which is absurd and Idk much about the Italian ( do you @ChambersWI ? ) but I really like Lacazette.

    The media says we have a £25m deal done for a cb called Michael Keane.... who we sold for like £2m a few years ago - another LVG ****up

    Yeah things apparently changed a bit with Morata and sounda like Mirabellk and Fassone have staryed to focus on Aubeyang and Bellotti. Eithet way it's nice having actice guys in the transfer window rsther than Galliani being so passive. Looks like Ricardo Rodriguez will be done soon as will Lucas Biglia. Andrea Conte wants us and we are trying to get him and Belotti by also offering Niang and or Kucka and Calabria on loan.

    I don't trust the Journalist who wrote this, but this would be ****ing amazing



    Zlatan has been released and Rooney will be sold, we had an option for a second year but didn't activate it. Replacing them with Morata and Belotti would be great... but the journo who said it is crap

    The other 3 names are Fabinho from Monaco, Perisic from Inter and Lindelof from Benfica but we have been linked to those guys for ages.


    Barca are trying to sign Herrera but have been told to **** off and he has been offered a new contract. I reckon he will be made captain when Rooney leaves, herrera is awesome on and off the pitch

    scratching my head over some of those Bayern tranfers so far. Süle I get since he's still very young (21), has loads of potential and our CB's have developed a habit of getting beaten up. Sebastian Rudy is a head-scratcher, but at least joins the team without a transfer fee. Serge Gnabry i don't think is ready for Bayern. we'll see, i hope i'm wrong.

    that said, there better be a big calibre signing in the making if we want to seriously challenge for the Champions League title.
