    Erik ten Hag named new United manager

    Excuse me. Where did you see some pace on Ziyech ? He never was fast.

    Erik ten Hag named new United manager

    But he do it in CL too. Also is style is completly different to Menphis. He has real pace to burn and a curling left foot.

    2021/22 End of Season Review ~ Diogo Dalot

    Apparently Crystal Palace is willing to take him back, but only if he accept a pay cut and Mourinho want Dalot in his team since the last summer. We will see.

    Erik ten Hag named new United manager

    He is nothing like Memphis, he is more like Nani when he came here. Explosive and full of skills. For me, Antony is the best RW we can get. Hopefully for a reasonable price.

    Premier League 2021/22: Crystal Palace vs Man Utd ~ Sun 22 May 4pm KO

    I understand you, but don't hope to much about De Jong and De Ligt. We are in a situation when this kinds of players will not come. We certainly need to lower your standard. We will see about that, soon.

    Kobbie Mainoo

    Looking good. Great close control and passing. Need to bulk up but that is a great player in the making. Hopefully, he go to Derby next year, he is too good to waste time with the under23.

    Premier League 2021/22: Crystal Palace vs Man Utd ~ Sun 22 May 4pm KO

    Hopefully ETH will be in the stand watching this bunch. That may encourage some of them to play well enought to win the last game.

    2021/22 End of Season Review ~ Diogo Dalot

    He is too slow to be a BPL fullback. He must go to Italy for is own good. He is terrible in defense and not great in attack, but he try. I give him a 3 (just 1 point above AWB).
  11. L

    2021/22 End of season review ~ Aaron Wan Bissaka

    Was a dubious choice when we signed him, because he as no attacking intend and that is mandatory for a modern fullback. Almost 3 years later, he is still the same. I give him a 2 because he try to defend but do it badly.
  12. L

    Erik ten Hag named new United manager

    Carrick proved in is little time as head coach that he was not just a follower of Ole. He had us play decent football when we were free falling. I will not judge him so quickly. He deserve a chance to learn the proper way with a good coach like ETH.

    What needs to change?

    Im a United fan like you, but i pay attention to over League, mostly Liga and Bundesliga. I keep in touch with the Ligue 1 because i'm french and i watch Ajax and Sporting Lisbon mostly because they are famous for producing great young players. From the BPL i believe Tielmans, Neves and Bissouma...

    Midfield Transfer Options

    No, we should invest wisely and build the core of the team. We need players that will be there 5 years minimum, that can still be moved on for some money after this period. The quick fix with oldies make us lose too much money and generate too much work to do, by searching every 2 years another...

    What needs to change?

    Joke apart, do you have some news to share ? A player to recommand ?

    Erik ten Hag named new United manager

    Agree, if i was ETH i would call Carrick back.
  17. L

    Midfield Transfer Options

    I add Sangaré from Psv and Fofana from Lens. If we are desperate add Thuram from Nice. Don't know over good and gettable players from the Bundesliga, Liga or Ligue 1. Absolutly don't want any midfielder from Serie A, Pogba slow play as served us well and most of them, lack tenacity.
  18. L

    What needs to change?

    French news saying we want Kante for 50m€, Nunez and Pogba are going to PSG if they lose Mbappe. After Vlahovic in the winter, and now Alvarez and Nunez, there is no one left for the striker role. Even Haller apparently said no to us. Also Kante is a little too old, injury prone and has lost the...

    FA Cup Final

    City didn't finish Real when everything was in there hands. They also didn't finish West Ham. Liverpool have god favour this season. We will see but there is no garanty despite being favorite.
  20. L

    What needs to change?

    Are you ready to bet that we will get De Jong instead of City ? I'm pretty sure he will end up there or stay at Barça.
  21. L

    What needs to change?

    The problem with Eriksen is that he is not particularly great, yet too old. If you want free transfer we should be after Kamara (22yo) only second to Tchouameni in the League for the CDM role. We can also try for Kessie if his deal is not done with Barça, despite the fact i don't particularly...
  22. L

    What needs to change?

    I never was impressed by Depay. He was an exemple of a false stats players. Banging goal with PSV but with no particular awesome abilities. He was not fast, he was not skillfull. He just had a strong right foot and that is all. Antony is more like Nani type of wingers (skillfull and explosive)...
  23. L

    What needs to change?

    You must be in a cavern. This is all over internet. Just Google it and you will find 10 articles saying ETH will get a budget around 100m£. I'm sorry but the club work like any other club in the business. They can't stop there transfer work being leaked to the press. We just got ditched by De...
  24. L

    What needs to change?

    Eriksen is a 30 yo AM and we already have Bruno and VDB. Dybala is a false nine, to similar to Bruno, he is Inter bound. Belotti is a 28yo and no better than Martial. I want none of your target, sorry. The substandard dutch League like you said has produced great talent for the BPL (Ruud, Van...
  25. L

    What needs to change?

    You also have no idea of the budget. Atleast the 100m£ is backed by the media. I also want to see who we get, but at the moment i see nothing good coming your way. The players i want are already at CL clubs or chased by them. And i don't believe there is so much gem we can bring unchallenged. If...
  26. L

    What needs to change?

    Everyone talk about free transfer but can't name the players. The good free transfer are not coming, stop pretenting they will. All of them want CL football. What we should do, is overpay to get young players with great potential now, and avoid the battle with others clubs. But we are still...
  27. L

    Race For Top Four 2021/22

    Yes, that is the focus, but the big problem is how you do it ? Certainly not with 100m£ budget. We will not be ready for preseason. Everything will be left late in the summer because we are last choice for the good players and we are not ruthless.
  28. L

    What needs to change?

    But they will not do it. What can you do with 100m£ when you have so many positions to fix and your are not first choice for the good players that want CL football ? We are in a situation when overpaying for free transfer will not work. We will not get Mbappe, Dembele, Kessie, Rudiger...
  29. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    Everyday we have more bad news. Look like all the good players will go elsewere. We will be forced to go for average talent that will not help us go in CL, just to get the number of players right for the season. We should already have dicussed about your targets with ETH and go for them as fast...
  30. L

    What needs to change?

    Still looking but can't find the names.
  31. L

    What needs to change?

    If we play De Jong as a CDM, with Fred and Bruno in front that may work, but we will have no cover. Still believe De Jong will end up in a team with CL football. I can't think he will risk his career just for ETH. Like any big player, he want a fair chance to get trophy. For the 100m£ budget...
  32. L

    What needs to change?

    Surprise. Matic is going to Juventus for 12m€ instead of going for free to Roma.

    Lewendowski to leave Bayern?

    They will go for Nkunku.

    Race For Top Four 2021/22

    No, Spurs will be better, there results before and after Conte are completly different. Arsenal can get more points with a good summer. Only Chelsea look like they will be in trouble.
  35. L

    Race For Top Four 2021/22

    Agree, the BPL is a battle between City and Liverpool, way behind you have Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs, then you have us and West Ham.We need a good summer to enter into the second group, fighting for 3rd to 5th spots.
  36. L

    Race For Top Four 2021/22

    Spurs is very dangerous since Conte came. They will be up there with Chelsea next season for the 3rd place, if they can keep Kane. They managed well the City, Pool and Arsenal games.
  37. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    Can only see Barça selling if they get 70m€ minimum and i don't believe Bayern will pay that. City has the biggest chance, they can propose a swap with Bernardo. Apparently Xavi is interested.
  38. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    Professionalism ? Well, you are talking about of one of the best winger of the game. He proved is worth in France, Germany and Spain despite all the bad talk. No one can beat a man like he do, and he deliver crazy number of key pass. I watch Barça many time, and if the forwards converted even...
  39. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    Yes obviously, one player will not change anything, we need a minimum of four to start seeing a change.
  40. L

    Erling Haaland

    I'm shocked by the amount. Still can't believe City accepted that. Anyway, it's perfect for Real. They didn't need him now because they still got Benzema, but in 2 or 3 years when Benzema will slow down, they will go for him.
  41. L

    What needs to change?

    I read l'Equipe too, but they are mostly interested about French international players and Ligue 1 clubs. They don't pay attention to United at all. I read onzemondial for that.
  42. L

    What needs to change?

    I simply watch the news from my country. I agree about England based players. They are not particularly better and are overpriced because like you said there club doesn't need to sell. This is why i chose players from outside the BPL most of the time. Rice and Kane are in the same situation as...
  43. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    They still have problem with Dembele but i can't see him chosing us. We are not in the CL.
  44. L

    What needs to change?

    We already have McTominay, Fred and Garner for the squad players role. We need better first team players first. If we still have some budget left after byuing the upgrade we will see, but i think we will not have enought to get all the players we need.
  45. L

    Frenkie de Jong

    Will believe it when i see it. If he really come it will be huge debut for the rebuild.
  46. L

    What needs to change?

    They are better but Rice and Bellingham are worth close to 75m. They are not for sell, so they will cost crazy amount to get them.
  47. L

    What needs to change?

    French press saying ETH will only get 100m£ budget. They say we are focused on free transfer, but all the good player have already been snaped or don't want to come. We will not get Mbappe or Dembele. Maybe we can hijack Kamara from his Athletico deal. Is there a list of good free players this...
  48. L

    What needs to change?

    That is better and younger, but i expect Chelsea to keep him around or send him into another loan next season.
  49. L

    What needs to change?

    He is not on the same level of De Jong, Laimer, Haidara, Gravenberch, Kamara, Tchouameni, Tielmans, Neves or Bissouma. That is why. This is the pool of players we should target, not 27yo Ward Prowse. At his age he is nothing else than an average player with no chance to improve. Also the price...
  50. L

    Erling Haaland

    He is the final piece, to win the CL and be overkill in the Prem
  51. L

    What needs to change?

    We should never be in for Ward Prowse. Atleast not before we try for better talent.
  52. L

    Erling Haaland

    I'm sure he has no clause in his City contract or a big one, something like 300m€. Anyway, that is bad news for us. City is getting stronger.
  53. L

    Erling Haaland

    Alvarez was on the list of Ralf in juanuary, like Diaz and Vlahovic but got denied. He apparently looked for Haidara and Laimer too for the midfield but also got denied.
  54. L

    What needs to change?

    French press saying Simeone want AWB for 25m€. Liverpool and Real want Tchouameni but they don't want to pay 70m€ for him. Tielmans to Arsenal if they get a CL spot and if not he will go to Real. Look like we will have to unearth gem that no other clubs want. The good players will want CL at all...
  55. L

    Erling Haaland

    Bernardo Silva also want to go. This is bad for us, because City will be very active this summer and may target De Jong like us.
  56. L

    What needs to change?

    Well Dybala is a false 9, so i don't want this type of players at all. We will not get the big free transfer (Mbappe and Dembele), but i was expecting Kamara from Marseille (22yo CDM only second to Tchouameni in the French league), but there is rummor he is going to Athletico Madrid. Don't want...
  57. L

    What needs to change?

    We can forget Tchouameni. French press saying he is only focused on playing CL football next season with Monaco or another team. With Monaco pricing him out at 70m€, i expect him to stay one more year before going to another club. At this moment, he will only have one year left in his contract...

    Relegation Battle 2021/22

    Loan Watch 2021/22: Amad Diallo at Rangers

    Yes, Antony is the best young RW we can get. Dembele is out of rush despite being free. But i worry about Liverpool, if they doesn't sort the contract of Salah soon, they may be in for Antony.
  60. L

    Loan Watch 2021/22: Amad Diallo at Rangers

    You needs to look at the competition for the spot. And at the moment he will compete with Elanga. I'm sure, if he look good on preseason and we don't buy a new RW, he will be in the team.
  61. L

    What needs to change?

    Don't loose hope so soon. I will judge the squad after the window. If we get in good players i may expect a top 4 challenge and if we don't i will expect just an improvement from the Ralf era. But that will be done after the window is close.
  62. L

    What needs to change?

    Well, i confirm what i said about the CB. They are not press resistant at all. Every time you press them, they lose the ball or invite pressure to De Gea. The amount of time Maguire has been disposessed is criminal for a pro CB. Being good on the ball is not being able to make a diagonal pass to...
  63. L

    Tyrell Malacia

    Ah ah ah, Lyon is about to close the deal for 15m€. No regret at all, he was not the answer and not top priority. We need a RB, a CDM, a CM and a RW first, before looking for Shaw understudy.
  64. L

    Loan Watch 2021/22: Amad Diallo at Rangers

    We deserperatly need a RW. He will be first choice next season if we don't have the money to buy one, this summer.
  65. L

    What needs to change?

    No there are not fine at all, most of them are average. Only Varane when fit is capable of playing a high line, the over except Bailly, doesn't have any pace in them and none of your CB is confortable with the ball at feet, they are not press resistant. But a CDM will make this lot look decent...
  66. L

    What needs to change?

    I agree about the priority, it's vital we get a RB, a CDM, a CM and a RW. Anything else is a bonus and needs to be done after we secure the critical position first. My take is Timber, Frimpong or Spence for the RB, Tchouameni, Kamara, Bissouma, Laimer or De Jong for the CDM, Gravenberch, De...
  67. L

    What needs to change?

    This kinds of budget will get you 3 top players max, but we need 5. Also we need to convince them to come without CL football. I feel that everything will be done late in the summer, after your targets are sure they can't get a CL teams first. It's sad, but we no longer are first choice.

    Kylian Mbappe’s future?

    Most kids become fan of there local team, the most succesfull team or the club of there parent. This day they play FIFA and FM and always look for the stars players.

    Liverpool Discussion 2021/22

    I also prefer City to win the PL to avoid the quadruple for Liverpool, but i also noticed that the Spurs under Conte get result against City and Pool. They will be no joke next year if they keep Kane. The 4 CL spots will be even more difficult to get.
  70. L

    Kylian Mbappe’s future?

    Kids doesn't care for circonstances, they only look at result. We were the same at there age.

    Premier League 2021/22: Brighton vs Man Utd ~ Sat 7th May 17.30KO

    I also can't wait for the transfer window. I want new players in and all this crap players out. This is my only expectation at the moment. End this season fast, forget the pain of it and start the rebuild.
  72. L

    What needs to change?

    Well, we don't know, it can become worst. Imagine we loose all the players that are expected to leave in the summer and nobody want to come in. We will be worst. I don't trust the Glazer to give full control and a big budget to ETH untill i see it.
  73. L

    Pogba to leave?

    This is easy to say, but the system is very important. Pogba has the ability to play it fast to the wing but he need that the wingers make the run. In this disfunctionnal team, nobody make run in behind. So he can't pass to them. Anyway, good bye Pogba, i want him gone to PSG, to avoid all the...
  74. L

    What needs to change?

    Expectation ? Well, untill i see who he sold and who he bring in, i have no expectation at all. We need 4 or 5 players in to make me believe again in this team. At the moment, every week they try to prove again and again, how crap they are. The respect for the badge, the effort, the standard of...
  75. L

    Pogba to leave?

    Exactly, he will go to the team that offer him the biggest salary. No problem if it's City. He has no loyalty to United.
  76. L

    Premier League 2021/22: Brighton vs Man Utd ~ Sat 7th May 17.30KO

    Disgusting, we are run raged by Briton ! This team can't stop disapointing.
  77. L

    What needs to change?

    No, this is a stupid move. All he have on AWB is pace. His delivery and close control his suspect. We should go for Timber or Frimpong first. And if they don't want to come we go for Spence as last option.
  78. L

    What needs to change?

    Damn, we are loosing De Jong. City want to swap him for Bernardo Silva and Xavi is interested. If we lose him i can't see another top class CM coming in. All my hope is on ETH finding a way to lure him away from Guardiola and create the domino effect we need to get all your targets in. Also, why...
  79. L

    Kylian Mbappe’s future?

    In France, it's all over the media, that he will stay. New contract is for 2 year with an option for one more. He will get 50m€ a year and a sign on fee of 100m€ ! This is disgusting, it's money over glory for him. As a neutral, it's very hard to understand how he thinks. He should realize that...
  80. L

    Tyrell Malacia

    I'm watching Malacia against Marseille. He doesn't look special. He certainly doesn't look fast at all for a fullback. Can't see anything else than a replacement for Telles on the bench. We should use your money elsewere.
  81. L

    Champions League 2021/22

    It's very infuriating because City is clearly better than Real, but because of the missjudgement of Guardiola, they are out
  82. L

    Champions League 2021/22

    Oh god. City can't hold a 2 goals lead. They deserve to lose. Guardiola was too arrogant. He didn't want to play to the last minute and got turned. Well, a revenge in the final. Please god, make Real win against Liverpool.
  83. L

    Lingard to Leave?

    I keep VDB. He is younger and know what ETH want. We should have accepted the offer from West Ham. Atleast we would have a couple of millions in the bag, for the rebuild.
  84. L

    Champions League 2021/22

    Same. After the first 45 mins, i was thinking, good they can produce a surprise but when Diaz came in and everything changed and the result was as expected. Sad. I want City to win the CL, atleast it will be just one cup, but if it's Liverpool or Real they will again pull away from us.
  85. L

    Pogba to leave?

    Oh, French press saying that Pogba officialy want PSG but PSG rather have Tchouameni or Thuram because they need a player formed in France and Pogba is not considered as one. They say that if Mbappe and many over young players of the club leave in the summer they will be forced to make up the...

    Cristiano Ronaldo | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

  87. L

    What needs to change?

    Martial was another story. He was hot property very late in the window, to the point that Monaco will not have time to replace him, so we paid the bill. Also he was a forward and they usualy go for more than over position. Anyway i believe he will ask for a move this summer to secure his place...
  88. L

    Cristiano Ronaldo | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

    Yes, i agree with Roy and Carra, just keep him for the next season and fix the others hole in the team. A striker that get you 20, 25 will cost too much of the budget ETH will get. Let get a RB and 2 CM first, add a RW and a CB if you can and we can start playing.
  89. L

    What needs to change?

    But Fabinho, Bernardo Silva and Tielmans are great in the BPL. It look like a add on tax because he is a French international. The same kind you get when you target an English international. We will see if someone give in to there demands.
  90. L

    What needs to change?

    French press saying Monaco want 70m€ for Tchouameni ! It's way above his value, i believe he will stay at Monaco if they can't accept 50m€ max for him. In the past they sold Fabinho and Bernardo Silva for this kind of price.
  91. L

    Lingard to Leave?

    I agree. I also thinks he wanted to talk to Scholes the ex players, not Scholes the pundit. Anyway, he is leaving probably to Westham or Newcastle. I can't see him changing country.
  92. L

    Cristiano Ronaldo | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

    I agree. He probably started the season like "what is this stupid level, i'm CR7" to "Ok, they average at best, so let's work hard for it". Anyway, he saved us. With Cavani constantly injured, we will have been way below with Martial upfront. Atleast we got an European cup spot thanks to him.
  93. L

    Pogba to leave?

    Exactly, Real will never give in to his wage demands. He is too inconsistent for that and his getting old (29 yo). They rightfully focus on young world class or promising players and when i look at Vinicius and soon Mbappe, i believe they are smart.
  94. L

    Premier League 2021/22: Man Utd vs Brentford ~ Mon 2nd May 8pm KO

    They turned up for the last home game. Thanks you, it was a good match, despite Dalot trying to ruin the party
  95. L

    What needs to change?

    I agree. This guy will not last two more year at the club. His only chance is if we can't find a club for him for his current value (40m€). I don't care about the loss, i want him gone as soon as possible. He is terrible and too old to improve.
  96. L

    Pogba to leave?

    No, he is problably fan of Marseille because of 93 when they won the CL. His father must have talked to him about that. Back in time PSG was a nothing club.
  97. L

    Harry Maguire | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

    I mean one in the starting 11. We will see if he stay, but i dont want him near the starting 11. He is worse value for a transfer in History.
  98. L

    What needs to change?

    You guys are funny. Maguire and Lindelof are both tall, ball playing CB, but they both lack pace and are not press resistant. ETH has proved that size is not important and he favour pacy ball playing and press resistant CB. That doesn't mean he can't adapt, but i'm sure he will want to replace...
  99. L

    Erling Haaland

    We will see. I can only thinks of Real and City The problem with his supposed Real desire is Mbappe. Mbappe want to be the top dog and will not accept Haaland. Real prefer Mbappe, so he is blocked. Barça can't pay him at the moment. He will end up at City but if he insist for a clause it will...
  100. L

    Harry Maguire | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

    I don't want him to agravate his injury. We must make him available for Newcastle this summer. It will be there first full english international in. They will not refuse this bet.
  101. L

    Erling Haaland

    Well, if he go to Real he will automatically have a get out clause, but Real will never accept something around 100m€. It will be 3 times that atleast. But anyway for various reasons, i see him end up at City without any kind of clause in the contract.
  102. L

    Pogba to leave?

    He may be a Marseille fan but he is also born in the suburb of Paris. Also nobody else want to pay him as much as he want, so he has no choice. It's PSG or get ready to accept less than what he currently get at United in second tier club like Juventus.
  103. L

    Scott McTominay | Match Discussion thread 2021/22

    You can have all the desire in the world that will never replace football abilities. This guy is average at best. He doesn't press, he can't pass, he have bad position awarness and he is not particularly fast. He is just a tall kid with desire. That may be good enought for a relegation candidate...
  104. L

    What needs to change?

    I planned to sell Rashford to buy Antony for the RW. I'm fine with Amad and Pellistri being the backup wingers. But i just wanted more from the Rashford sell. 45m£ look low, but Rashford form can't help at all, so we will see.
  105. L

    What needs to change?

    I disagree. Telles is bad but he is only a backup option. I believe in Shaw for the LB position and think the RB position is more urgent because Dalot and AWB are both bad. In RB we can get Timber (former position) or Frimpong, both young and talented.
  106. L

    Premier League 2021/22: Man Utd vs Brentford ~ Mon 2nd May 8pm KO
