    Oops...

    Maintaining COVID security is a priority for Manchester United.

    Following routine testing of the first-team training group today (Thursday), we have identified a small number of suspected positive cases.This has led to those people isolating, pending further tests.

    As a precautionary measure based on COVID protocols, we have taken the difficult decision that we will not now be able to play the friendly match against Preston North End this Saturday (31 July).

    Odd to see Varane get the #19 shirt. Given that the #4 might not even still be alive.

    Is he still alive?? Ol' farmer gurner?

    The #'s 2, 3 and 4 will probably... hopefully, not even play the total of their squad numbers this season.

    He asked for the number 4 shirt but, I kid you not, Phil fucking Jones refused to give it up! It was on BEIN before and they were pissing themselves about it.

    That performance was proper United.

    Amen.

    Ole's had the right idea from the start, unfortunately he took over a team and bunch of players that were a shambles. A few seasons in and his UTD are coming through.

    Spot on. And today without Sancho (apart from the last 20), Varane, Cavani, Rashford etc.

    Good times ahead.

    Yep. He's gotta win things now though.

    Obviously, our big problems over the years have been our back line (a soft touch from set pieces and balls into the box- Hi Victor!) and a failure to break teams down that sit deep and are well organised (the Villareal game being a case in point).

    The signings will go some way to addressing these issues but, unless we get more of the France Pogba, I still think we'll be a little way from the league title. if City get Kane too, well...

    ...However, we'll be a serious fucking danger in any of the cup competitions, and I'll be putting a cheeky few quid on us for the European Cup as a decent outside bet.

    You'll be better off putting your money on City for the quad

    Fair point.

    Especially as this will be the 4th one in a row that you've won, won't it?

    Growing up as a kid in northern France, his hero was Rio Ferdinand. When he was ready to leave Lens in 2011 it was between Fergie's United and Real Madrid.

    You can't say he didn't make the right decision.

    However, see the pride in the lad's face at finally signing for Manchester United and his hug and conversation with Rio - win, win, win - at 1.51.

    It’s in posts like that when you seem about 15.

    I'm still waiting for the post when you seem younger than 75.

    Some plastic chairs and bins thrown around, apparently.

    Doubtless it'll be rougher when the Trumpton Ultra gets back.

    I'll just throw this in here that Varane has played 14 finals for Madrid and France...

    ...and won all of them.

    It's Sancho, Rashford and Cavani who get the headlines, but this fella is the business.

    Mason Greenwood has everything Manchester United need in a striker | Manchester United | The Guardian

    I wouldn't swap him for anyone in the world. He's pure gold.

    I didn't know the away kit included bright yellow shorts.


    Almost a bit Leeds-ish.


    Fok Greenwood's good. Besides his goal being scuffed. He's gonna be a 20+ goals a season player, season after season, starting this season or next.

    OGS equals Wenger's record of 27 away games unbeaten.


    It seems a long time ago that OGS and Frank Lampard were being pitched as rivals to be compared.

    Away to Wolves next Sunday and Ole can be the all time managerial PL record holder for away games unbeaten in a row.
