Chris Smalling has signed a new contract till 2019.
http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11667/9816279/manchester-united-defender-chris-smalling-signs-new-four-year-contract
Looks like our summer businesses will be completed much sooner this year for a change. Serious reports from reputable media have intensified over the last few weeks. Depay, Hummels, Gundogan, Clyne, Ings... Get them as soon as the window opens so that we can have a whole month before the new season starts for the new squad to gel. Can't wait :)
Carrick "is struggling to be fit to play at Goodison Park on Sunday but Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones are expected to return"

@Goodison
DDG
Valencia Smalling Rojo Shaw
Herrera Blind
Mata Fellaini Young
Rooney

I hate to put Valencia's name there every time but I don't have a choice!
I don't think anyone has a choice, last couple of defeats have both been because of mistakes on the right flank. Against Arsenal Valencia 's horrible pass and against Chelsea Valencia failed to track Hazard.
it wasn't valencia who failed to track hazard it was herrera. hazard isn't playing down the wing he's playing centrally.w
There was a gap between Valencia and our other three defenders Shaw-McNair- Smalling and Hazard just stormed through given the opportunity. The defence must be more compact.
Very true, Valencia certainly could have been more central there. Mata and i think valencia on fabregas, Smalling was drawn to Oscar which created the opening but hazard's run was from central, I think it was Herrera's job to close that angle. One of the drawbacks of playing one holding mid, that person needs to be very discipline and read the game well. Herrera doesn't have the defensive awareness and discipline of carrick just yet. On paper it might seem like we were a similar team but Rooney RCM and Herrera dm/cm messed up that right side chemistry and Herrera is much better in the opponents half than ours since he is a short pass creator. I'm just glad shaw had such a good game, what a tank
McNair at RB might be better than AV.
It's true that Valencia made few mistakes that led to goal this season but other than than he's been solid most of the time... I dont understand why ppl are complaining. In fact we should be grateful that he wad able to fill that position since theres no one else
yeah so bottom line: must sell him this summer and buy somebody good. Thanks. MU is not a club to make so many mistakes during the important matches.

Also dont forgot, what was his RAW original position? Exactly, and that is where he was supposed to be playing and that is where he sucks, and we try to compromise his aggression and run on the wings and put him in RB position, when we always lacked actual normal RB.

I expect RB and CB incoming this summer. But even though I want Valencia to go, I guess LVG will still use him from time to time.
came a bit late but a nice infographic of players ratings against chelsea
http://i.imgur.com/fQIJ9zO.png


luke shaw highlights:
pass acc: 98.1%
touches: 68
shots: 2 (0)
key passes: 3
aerials won: 4
clearances: 2
fouled: 2
crosses: 1/4

Whoa that pass accuracy is insane. If he can do this consistently he will become the best LB in the world.
+1
lol what a surprise, the two youngest have the highest rating. We should have played the entire youth team instead so Mou cannot predict our style.

I thought Shaw was horrible going forward, but he did quite well against Chelsea, created a few good runs into the box.
It is why I had to laugh when people said ramires neutralized shaw. I went back and caught the highlights and shaw.created two more dangerous chances while Ramirez was on. Ramires was there to try and nullify young and di maria. Shaw was still going 1 v 1 with ivanovic most of that period. Putting Blackett on killed all the attacking, he refused to overlap and do Maria was 1 vs 2 from then on.
Indeed, Shaw and McNair were the main positives in our match against Chelsea. The future is bright. We need more steel in the central midfield though, Zouma and Matic overpowered even the mighty Fellaini.
Manchester United make Memphis Depay enquiry, PSV confirm

guys, after the prank, liverpool removed balo from POTY list

but his name has since been put back, so I, representing the Liverpool FC, would like to ask your few seconds to vote him again in the link below:
http://www.liverpoolfc.com/2015-player-young-player-of-the-year-vote


Thanks and regards,
Theatreofdream
Liverpool FC Representative for Footytube
They going to give it to coutinho regardless of balo winning, but this whole thing is hilarious.
His situation makes me so sad, His double against Germany was one of my favourite moments of the past few years, I really thought he would turn a new leaf when he joined Milan but I guess nothing is ever gonna happen with him.
Balotelli's attitude and intelligence (or lack thereof) means that he'll never fulfill the potential he once had. I can't see any top club buying him anymore

On another note, I really hope he wins POTY haha
Performance of the year opens 27 Apr

Its gonna be one awkward ceremony lol
Who's worse: Falcao or Balotelli?
of course balotelli!!
+1
Oh thanks for the reminder! I forgot to vote since the reset! And because they did the reset, I'm gonna vote more times!
+2
maybe both players dont suit their teams?

This is a no brainer, Falcao is just going through a tough phase, he was a top striker couple of years back and actually was instrumental in Atlètico winning the the Europa League. But he hasn't been able to recover that form since his injury. He has excellent work ethic though and goes about his job like a professional.

Balotelli on the other hand is a complete cartoon. Nowhere has he justified his high transfer fees, and is a disgrace to the sport.
+2
Falcao has been one of the best strikers in the world for years. His injury is one of the worst a forward can suffer. Heck, Vidic has never been the same after tearing his ACL and his position doesn't rely on pace as much.
I still think he's got some serious quality.
The reason why we shouldn't be so quick to condemn Falcao is because neither Rooney nor RvP have covered themselves in glory in the lone striker role.
Rooney scored a beauty against Villa but was otherwise anonymous against Liverpool and City.

Imo, if Monacco (based on this season) lowered the asking price to 20 million or less and his wages renegotiated, we should definitely keep him.
Keep in mind, our midfield still doesn't create enough chances for our strikers - most of our best chances usually came from the wing!
I'm hoping Falcao doesn't stoop as low as Liverpool
+3
@lvg - How is Balo a disgrace? That is just plain hateful man.
@lvg i think Falcao was in Monaco when atlethico reached UCL Finals.....
+1
Sorry I meant the Europa league. What has Balotelli ever done? He is a prima donna whose claim to fame is being involved in some training ground bust-ups, fighting with the very manager who gave him the chance to play, setting his house on fire, being sent off for stamping on opponents, tweeting that Lionel Messi is only 'slightly better' than him, wearing a AC Milan jersey while playing for Inter, etc. He has done NOTHING on the pitch to make fans adore him. Sorry we hold legends in very high respect around here and this guy is nothing more than a clown.
+2
Balotelli is a f*****g degenerate
+1
@LVG - we were not talking about Balo being a legend. I just asked you why you called him a 'disgrace' and I don't see why you must use a word like that.

Yes, he has been a clown and has more off the pitch antics than anyone should. He did his bit in City's title winning season and was an important team member. As much as City don't want him near their squad anymore he is adored by City fans.

Agreed that he has massively undone his potential with deeds as dumb as a rock but I'd rather pick players who cheat and dive to label as 'disgrace'. Balo isn't one of them.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/liverpool/11548986/Liverpool-transfer-news-and-rumours-Radamel-Falcaos-agent-in-talks-with-the-club.html

not sure how i feel about this. i dont want UTD to keep him but at the same time, seeing him might be going to Liv is just sad... he can do better
they can take falcao,he just ISN'T working for us..we need to drop the falcao project completely and sign someone else.His results are very disappointing
He should go to Villa instead
lol a mediocre player for a mediocre team. they better off going for tom cleverly
he's far from mediocre, he is still one of the best strikers in the world. talent doesnt disappear overnight. he needs a run of games to build some confidence, fitness, chemistry, etc. he could very well score a hattrick vs everton. he is a good striker just not got to grips here yet. not worth the price for us but someone will gamble on him and i think he could easily score 15-20 league goals as the lone striker for a side in the premier league.
+6
What Falcao need to turn his career around is a team with midfield that can constantly find him in the box.
the thing is that its not overnight. People keep bringing up performances he had well over 3 years ago at this point but that is a long time in sports. on top of that he suffered a pretty horrific injury which has seen him out for a prolonged period of time. Look at Fernando Torres for example. he was amazing at Atlético Madrid, excellent at liverpool, mediocre at chelsea, mediocre at milan, meh in his return to Atlético Madrid. So yes some people can lose it in a blink of an eye. Also falcao has always been the kind of player that needed an established team to perform but with his high wages and the amount we would need to pay for him, its ludicrous to continue with this experiment. So yea i stand by my assertion.
+2
arguing we need him at this price and arguing he is now mediocre are two separate things imo. i think he can still score lots of goals, but maybe this isn't the right environment for him. he has had a couple decent performances, he actually played really well and got the winner vs everton (though he missed a ton of chances). same with spurs @ whl and qpr @loftus road.

he screwed up a lot of chances, but when on form im sure he buries those and he could easily have 8 or so more goals just from those games.

i wouldnt be surprised to see him go elsewhere and start scoring a ton as the main man, thats all im saying. he's never relied on pace, his game is movement, positioning and finishing so i think he could do some real damage elsewhere.
+2
For once i completely agree with SIF
+1
Falcao is mediocre? Are you serious?
What has RVP done this season? Is he mediocre too?

Falcao just does not fit in our system. Plain and simple.
He is one of those strikers that is lethal at FINISHING. He isn't one of those strikers who can create something out of nothing or hold the play or bring others into the play. He's just not like that.
With us playing possession football, you will never see him do good here.

Put him back in Athletico or even Dortmund and he'll start scoring again.

My two cents on the situation.
+2
if we wanted a goal poacher/finisher we already have rvp..both rvp and falcao are struggling..
chicha is also a poacher and finisher,not much the same finishing as the other two but seeing his performances in madrid he has improved alot..remember the chicha that would only attempt shots at goal inside the box?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS38u2qyXMk

obviously a different environment,but would pick chicha over falcao any day..
we are playing a strong reserve team today, rvp wilson adnan rafa evans etc in the starting lineup.

edit:

looks like sean goss (19) has broken into the u21. he scored the first goal. rafa off injured (sigh..)
sigh... maybe it's time to move on and look for e new RB. Rafael had all potential the be a world class RB but at this rate he'll probably join his brother at a smaller team
Good to hear, I was thinking where have Sean Goss been. I am confident he can be our future CM, we seem to lack a proper CM even in our Youth squad.

We are winning the U21~
early doors but i like goss, he has a cultured left foot, good passing range, etc.

soft goal but he could develop into a decent player:

januzaj also injured :(
Wingers for next season.
Young, Mata, Di Maria, Janujaz, Nani, Lingard, Valencia, Pereria.
8 wingers! Who's gonna stay? who's gonna leave? Here's my quick opinions on these players.

Young. Been good all season, been fantastic recently, apparently willing to take a pay cut to stay? he has passion for United so I think he should STAY.

Mata. Not really played alot this season if you think about it, but recently he's been playing and has been great, credit to LVG for getting the best out of him. Scores important goals as well e.g Liverpool, City should STAY.

Di Maria. Was amazing for Real Madrid, We pay 60m for him, give him the number 7 shirt so of course he should be doing better than what he is doing but what the stats say he has had 10 Assists which isn't bad but could be doing a lot better for a player of his quality but i believe he should be giving another season and prove everyone wrong so he should STAY.

Janujaz. Was great last season under Moyes, his debut was something else 2 great goals against Sunderland. I believe he will be something special but he hasn't played a lot this season in which I feel sorry for him, so for next season I think he should go on LOAN.

Nani. He's been up & down, some utd fans love him some don't. That's the type of player he is, can be great one game, the next he'll be awful. Would LVG be able to get the best out of him? Maybe look at what he's done with Young and Fellani. But for me he's had enough chances at Old Trafford and should LEAVE.

Lingard. He has potential, but will he fufuill it at united? I don't think he'll get that many chances tbh but I think LVG rates him unless why would he sign a new contact? I like him and he's still young and can learn a lot from LVG over the summer but I think he should go on LOAN.

Valencia. First season was amazing under Fergie, second got a bad injury and he hasn't really been the same so in a way I feel sorry for him with all the negative things said about him. He's been playing rb this season and I don't think he's done that bad tbh but as a winger he's days at united have ended for me, also he isn't a quality rb and we should get Clyne who is great in my opinion so for me Valencia should LEAVE.

Pereria. Great potential in this guy, hasn't had the chances at united and he looks set to leave don't blame him tbh. could it be another Pogba situation as he's been linked with juve. Don't think he'll sign a new contact (hope he does) so he will LEAVE.

We have been linked with other team wingers such as Depay (PSV) Bale ( Real madrid) Reus (Dortmund) etc. I would like us to sign one class winger just for more competition as it looks like atm will we have UCL back next season also be aiming to win the PL next season and of course Capital one cup and FA Cup.

I want to know your opinions on are wingers and who you want to stay or leave. Also do we need more wingers or should be show more faith in the incomings of next season? THANKS FOR READING IF YOU DID!!
Starting 11: Young/Depay, Mata/ADM
Reserve/Loan: Januzaj, Lingard, Pereira (if he stays), one or two of these on loan
Out: Nani, Pereira (at his own will)
RB Backup: Valencia

Think that'll be enough depth for Winger department

Young: Hard worker defensively and offensively, OK crosser
Mata: Creative powerhouse, scorer, set piece
ADM: Creative powerhouse, dribbler, pace
Januzaj: Creative dribbler but immature, loan candidate
Nani: Had enough chance, haven't improved since he came
Lingard: Creative and a scorer, but no sign of improvement yet? Loan candidate
Valencia: F- as a winger, strong and pacey but slow decision making, can't cross, can't deliver the final ball, but he could stay as Clyne back up
Pereira: Talented, but is he going to stay? Loan candidate
+2
Valencia should stay, he has been used as a rb this season and done a solid job overall. I can think of one aguero breakaway he shut down for a goalkick, impressive defending, and always bombing up the wing even in 90th minute. His bad decision cost us the fa cup but overall he is an impressive physical presence and team player who gives balance to the Herrera Mata trio. If we sell him we need two rbs.. Unnecessary to get rid of him IMO but we could use a new rb for sure.
Valencia's decision making and crossing is just $hit. But I have to agree, he has done more than a decent job at defending in RB. Nevertheless, I think he should leave. I just get frustrated when he shuts off in the final third looking like a clueless ostrich..
