'You have to know one thing. A player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy. That's all I'll say.' Pogba's mentality has been questioned by Mourinho and the midfielder was dropped last season for the Champions League tie against Sevilla. 'I am th...

Few transfer windows have ended with both the fans and manager so disappointed with the business or lack thereof that was done. Mourinho supposedly wanted 6 players and only got 4, now one of those was supposedly a second CM but we re-signed the lump and now Andreas Pereira has a season to see if...

If Jones was not made of glass he would be the best CB in the league, do you agree?

Know he just has missed a couple of absolute sitters but what a player. Surely won't be long before he is picked up by a bigger club.

There is clearly benefit to having some continuity from a team point of view so the benefit of mass changes has a limited benefit. Thus, would it make it more exciting and with better matches if subs could roll on and off. It could be managed by the 4th referee so that the referee didn't have to...

So lets believe for a moment that we don't self distruct in the next few weeks/months and Jose is still here come January/next summer do we think this past transfer window was a one off that the board will learn from (i.e. ignoring the managers targets and focusing on their unrealistic own) or wi...

Now this may be a a bit pre mature to say this but something doesn't look right between Woodward and Jose. It won't be wrong to say our transfer window up till now has been bad.

After an electric start we struggled to put our mark on the game, but in the second half we were largely dominant. Jose clearly spoke to the lads at half time and we came out playing much higher up the pitch, which i think was the game plan from the off. As a result, we restricted Leicesters chan...

Their first start as a pair in a competitive game. Think this has potential. Compliment each other well in my opinion. Also, like that they did not hoof it at every opportunity when they were under pressure.
RedCafe.net - Fri Aug 10 10:22 PM
When asked about the board not going after his targets he said that's football management. That football is changing and managers are now more like head coaches. I don't think he could have dealt with that any better.

From the first team in addition to Romero changing to 22 with Dalot taking the number 20 shirt, Rojo switches from 5 to 16. Before anyone makes any suggestions it is a dig from Mourinho about the club not signing a centre back, Rojo wears 16 for Argentina and this is the first season that the 16...

A lot of our fans are obviously from outside of Manchester or the North West.

So last nights clearly co-ordinated brief from the club that we had £100m to spend on a centre back if their name was Raphael Varane raised an obvious question to me. The entire principal of the way our club is run tasks the manager with identifying targets, choosing players, and telling the mone...

It's been widely reported that there was 100 million available for a CB, but Ed didn't want to pay over the odds for our targets, hence no transfer.

This club was briefing against its manager and aired divisions between board and manager all over the back pages. To be honest, I don't know what to think anymore.

Well the media have been briefed, we didn't sign a CB because those above Mourinho didn't like his preferred list of targets, this'll surely be the beginning of the end because we know Jose won't take that lying down and when he gets in a fight with those above him we know it'll only end one way...

It seemed like an obvious position to improve to most folk.

With us barely doing anything in the market this summer and Liverpool having their best summer in a while, has the gap in quality of the squads (not just 1st xi's) been closed?

RedCafe.net - Thu Aug 9 5:12 PM
Going to give it a 5. Think we needed two fullbacks, once CM, one CB and another attacker. Did two of those things but Dalot and Fred could turn out to be very good players for us. Think the earlier Dalot puts Tony to pasture the better. One less fullback to kill our attack.

This might be sacrilegious to some but since the rumours are in full flow, it might be interesting to know if there are offers some would find acceptable? Would people take Dybala+Sandro? Dembele+50m? 150m? My own opinion is a bit contradictory. On the one hand I don't think he's proved that he's...

Team Beam Tactics Team is playing an unorthodox 352 formation which is built to bring the best out of the team in general, but also individual qualities within. In the attacking phase, this team is capable of controlling the tempo of the game and most importantly creating either from deep positio...

If you could predict one big story from this season, what would it be? It doesn't have to be United, it could be anything within the top flight: managers coming and going, the rise to prominence of a hitherto unappreciated player, the unexpected fall from grace of a major star, etc. This can be s...

Boring isn't it? I know the World Cup's on but hardly any transfer activity is, apparently, going on.

This time of the year is known as silly season in relation to football news, and we've been whipped into hysteria on this forum over the last 4-6 weeks. I'm not going to sit here and tell you things are good - that's up to you to decide but look at our forum at the moment; Martial is leaving/the...

Ofcourse not this year, but what would be your choices ? Pogba hasnt proved anything for us that makes him irreplaceable . Rakitic is ofcourse my first choice. Or sign someone like Dybala and move to 4231. Thoughts? Eriksen - excellent option (not signed an extension yet) Savic - overrated . Pjan...

After my fantastically successful winter thread where England kept true to form overseas and did sod all in the tests whilst playing some fantastic shorter format stuff I thought I might as well give the summer a crack too.

Isotope The team weren’t a counter-attacking side, but used a quick transition to attack as quickly as possible. The players in midfield and attack make it possible to have varieties of use the pace of wingers to run with the ball or try an explosive counter-attack with two or three passes. When...

So Mourinho keeps asking Willian to come to United. He wants to play for Mourinho. But the issues may be about money; he is a player who is 30 on transfer deadline day, and who would command an OTT transfer fee. Plus, the fact that the source of Willian's disgruntlement at Chelsea was Antonio Con...

According to a new study. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45087444 Apparently Liverpool were the unluckiest. Just goes to show though that luck mostly evens out, glad we weren’t in a scrape for fourth place though!

@Judas and I seem to be on opposite sides. A poll would help. Would you rather get rid of Pogba or Mourinho? I'm quite sure midway through the season we'd favour Mourinho. Now after Pogba has a good World Cup and Mourinho turns more of the caf against him it appears the other way round. In any ca...

We've got quite a lot of contracts expiring next summer and we don't look like selling anyone bar Darmian in this window. Next summer could be quite a transitional period. Then again, if ambitions are more top 4ish and less title challenge-ish we might give out loads of contracts this winter. Con...

We have 4/5 good quality CB in Bailly, Smalling, Lindelof, Jones/Rojo. Yes they can be improved upon, but we had a very good defensive record last year, defending isn't our problem. As we know our lack of goals is a big problem, without Lukaku we struggle to score consistently. Watching this team...

The mood in the RedCafe has felt rock bottom. There have been various lows, but something about this feels like its consolidated to the worst I can remember. In recent years we've had some shockers.

A lot of flack being directed towards Mourinho but surely an equal amount of blame lies with Woodward? We started the transfer window hopeful we'd sign Sandro, Willian and yet we've signed none of them. Ditto last season with Perisic. Mourinho's said he's given a list of 5 players to Woodward, wa...

Anybody watching this? New HBO show to rival Billions with none of the charm even though it was created by the writer from Peep Show. Every single character bar the comic relief is reprehensible. I've also never seen a tone change as between episode 2 and 3. It somehow went from a tense thriller...
