Apparently it was leaked, so take it with a pinch of salt. Might just be a new concept and not the actual kit.

Yeah, if we're going to have a crap kit at least make it really crap like this!

I'd actually like the look of that if it didn't have the Chevrolet logo. Bring back Sharp.

Yeah there's been so much talk about it that it's hard to imagine there's no truth in it. I expect we'll get him. Exciting!

Looks better than the bus seat design, and maybe they'll be able to blend in with the grass and be harder to keep up with :-p

Well some good news

 

https://www.imust.org.uk/Blog/Entry/m-u-s-t-response-to-confirmation-that-manchester-united-has-submitted-a-proposal-for-a-rail-seat-trial-at-old-trafford

 

It would be great to see rail seating installed in Old Trafford. No downsides from my point of view - it's safer, and potentially allows more tickets to be sold, at a lower price (if the Premier League allows clubs to actually sell standing tickets). I think I'd actually prefer it for comfort reasons too - people are too fat these days to squeeze into 90s-era density of seating.

 

Confirmation that rail seating will be trailed at Old Trafford next season, whenever that may be. BBC article.

I don't like seeing all these articles about how poor Andy Cole is struggling. I worry for him.

This is hilarious:

 

ESPN: Manchester mayor office hits back at Di Maria's wife's comments

 

Angel Di Maria's wife caused a stir this week with her outburst regarding the Paris Saint-Germain forward's time in Manchester, calling it "horrible" and criticising its culture, "weird" female inhabitants and "disgusting" food. "Manchester is the worst. It is all horrible in Manchester," Jorgelina Cardoso told Los Angeles de la Manana.

 

It was the latest episode in what has become an ongoing battle between Di Maria and United following his unhappy spell there after a £59.7 million switch from Real Madrid in 2014.

 

ESPN contacted Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham's office for comment and ... well, it's fair to say one of his key advisers has responded in kind.

 

"Before I comment, I do agree with her on one point," Sacha Lord, night-time economy adviser for Greater Manchester and one of Burnham's key allies, said. "Having been a United supporter all my life, I also found that period quite depressing. Her husband was bought for almost £60m, sold a year later and was undoubtedly one of United's biggest flops.

"As for our food, we have many outstanding restaurants across the whole of our city region. I can only think her taste buds have been tarnished by how sour and bitter she is.

"As for our culture, when I think of Manchester, I think of the Industrial Revolution, the suffragettes, the co-op movement, Marx and Engels, the Peterloo Massacre, the computer, splitting the atom, graphene, Alan Turing, textiles, canals, railways, football and music. "As for women always being dolled up, it may have helped if she had ventured out of the leafy suburbs of Alderley Edge at some point during that period."

 

"Having said that," Lord continued. "I wish the couple all the best during lockdown and hope she has used her time wisely, dusting off some of her many overpriced handbags."

The next transfer Window will be crucial, and it makes me nervous. Would be hilarious if we managed to sign both Sancho and Werner, but devastating if we can’t make the right signings. We need to close the gap to Liverpool and City, so we need more quality players.

You won’t get either. Certainly not Werner! 
 

Also you’ll never close the gap with OGS as your manager.

I want to see United stick with OGS for a while. We are too quick to get rid of managers. David Moyes isn't the greatest manager in the world - but there is a good reason we was initially offered a 7 year contract and I think if we stuck with Moyes the past 7 years we wouldn't be in any worse of a position than we are now.

 

In fact, to give Moyes some credit; he was given a lot of shit for not buying players - but the two first team players he did buy (Fellaini and Mata) we relied on for the following five years after he got sacked. So many games where we were either a goal down or equalising and we turned to Fellaini to come on and nut away that last minute goal. Terrible times - that you have to rely on floating the ball into the box for someone tall to nut it to the ground and hope it bounces in the back of the net... but it got us through when all the expensive buys weren't performing.

 

Moyes thought he had time to turn the squad around. He didn't even get chance to finish out the season. He still has a marginally better win percentage than Louis van Gaal and won as many titles (Moyes' 1 Community Shield vs LvG's 1 FA Cup).

 

If we can have a solid backroom staff and OGS at the helm, I'm not worried. We just need time and patience. I'm not worried if buying new players is a little slow - there is also talent coming up from the youth squads. So long as United finish in the Top 5 each season and we can see an improvement as time goes on, I'm happy.

 

United enjoyed so many years of success winning title after title, year on year. We got spoilt.

I’m a bit worried. We need to sign young talented players like Sancho, Werner, Haaland and the likes if we want to compete for titles. I think OGS will be sacked unless he gets us champions league football, and in order to be top 4 we need to improve our squad. We failed to sign Bruno last summer and you can see how much of an impact he has had, and there is no doubt in my mind that if we had signed him last summer we would have been 3rd right now. 

 

We can’t have players like Jones, Lingard, Pereira, Smalling, Dalot, Rojo and Sanchez taking up space. We need top top players like City and Liverpool has.

But come on, he couldn't get rid of all those, along with the ones he did last year as well, with the injuries Utd had this season, that squad was needed, this summer, of course some of those will go, youth can come through and new players will come in. OGS needs to finish this season, and preferably in 4th, even if 5th allows CL next season, 4th would send out a decent message of intent, but he needed time, he got time, things started to improve and the actual football was becoming fun to watch again, results count, but playing a good looking game also helps, it's there for entertainment, not just the result, if all you care about is the result, maybe a day in the bookies is better than a trip to Old Trafford.

I agree that we need to sign the right players, but I don't buy statements like that. You can't expect to buy one player (Hello Pogba) and expect a massive turn around in the team. There is undoubtedly a lot of dead wood we need to axe and players we should attempt to buy - but if they aren't coming all at once, that's fine. And if we buy a player and it doesn't turn our entire season around - that's also fine. I'm just saying we should have a little patience with one manager / setup before we get trigger happy on firing them.

Not sure the board will agree though.
