Any reason why we've only made one first team signing Ed001? Is Woodward penny pinching again? Also, are the club still looking for a sporting director? Thanks.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - your final question is the main issue. That should have long been sorted by now.}

19 Jul 2018 19:32:53
Makes sense Ed, can tell they only care about the £££. Literally no planning/ strategy at the club anymore, quite shocking but laughable at the same time, getting very frustrating now. Is there a chance a director will be coming in soon or has that ship 'sailed'?

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I really expected it to be done by now. The club have decided to go with one, so it is just a matter of time as the plan has not been shelved.}

May be down to a bloated overpaid squad that is impossible to shift to make room for new arrivals.

Heck I'll do the job. I'm cheap. 25k a year will do me plus expenses.

On Jose's press conference
1) He said it's important that Sanchez get used to being with Martial and Mata. As we will start attacking with them. so neither Martial or Mata is leaving.

2) Pogba comment were to round round. it was appreciation but also tone of what he need to do to stop repeat of last season under him.

3) youth players get chance to train. He didn't say impress and grab opportunity.

So can't Judge what's different it's going to be from Last season.

Figure crossed for positives.

I'm assuming OOTRD's first language isn't English. Yet he's trying to talk with other United fans on a forum and you lads are ridiculing him. Hardly welcoming for new members is it boys? Give the lad a chance.

Very well said Wazza.
Eric - not sure that is banter mate, just ignorance.
Like it or not we support a global club now so let's focus on what people say rather than how they say it.
Even our own team captain can't speak English.

One Of The Red Devil, no need to apologise, mate. I think it was fairly obvious from your post that your first language isn't English. I'd like to see some of the posters on here from the UK try and post in such good English from time to time.

Darmian's agent saying talks are at an advanced stage with Juventus, goodluck to him, his debut vs Spurs seems like an age ago.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

17 Jul 2018 23:34:02
Daley Blind departure confirmed. I believe he has been a very good Squad player. And I guess he could have been a useful deep lying midfielder but his versatility has costed him.
Anyway, good Luck to Lad.
Considering our FFP situations, for which Ibrahimovic had to leave. We are in condition that we need to sale first than can buy. So I guess we can spend once we have space in wages and for that we really need to move on Smalling/ Jones (both) , young, Mata etc. I wish we clear stock quickly.

Believable7 1Unbelievable

18 Jul 2018 17:22:46
Yeah like so many of our squad, nice guys but not quite the level required.

I think a massive overhaul is needed, I know people harp on about too much change in personnel is bad, but not in all cases and frankly a massive change is needed if we expect to compete with City and for the CL.

Mata - £30m
Pogba - £70m
Darmian - £20m
Rojo - £20m
Smalling - £20m
Jones - £20m
Herrera - £25m
Martial - £45m
Blind - £15m
Shaw - £15m

That adds up to £280m, let's say we have £150m budget to add to the above sales which is £430m. Granted tax, agents, pay offs, will eat a chunk but let's say we have £350m to spend. That is enough for:

RB - Sidibe - £55m
CB -? - £40m
LB - Sandro - £50m
CM - Thiago - £50m
CM - Savic - £70m
RW -? - £50m

We have already brought Fred in of course, which takes us up to a roughly £350m.

I appreciate this is all rough and there will be multiple options, but if we buy world class players in those positions we will compete. Everyone will have their players they like that I have listed, but I think we can do better and most teams will have a tough start with the World Cup lag, so no better season to have a major overhaul.

F*ck, if only the world was as simple as the one you live in, Beast.

Agree8 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 18:12:10
Beast I know your the type of poster than divides options on here. sometimes I do agree with what you say.

But how you can say pogba is worth 70 million is a mystery

We don't need a massive overall we need to sign 3 players 4 at most we have some good players

Change of emphasis and style and I think we have a good enough team to compete. That's just my opinion

I would say a cb (toby) is a must a left back (take your pick) and someone like bale for the right and another central midfielder.

I do agree that we need to make signings. regardless if you were winning the lot ever season competition for players is a must for me.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 19:01:43
I think we should keep pogba and martial. Pogba is world class and he will hopefully put in more consistent performances. Don't know why most people want him gone. Martial was on fire before Sanchez arrival so give him another season at least. He's still young and will come good. Rojo and Jones can go. Just not good enough. Shaw needs to prove to everyone that he is depending and will step up. Mata, nice guy but ain't going to win us matches. Herrera is a decent squad player. So is smalling. Darmian is good as gone. I'd give timo more game time than buy a right back.
As for signings varane is a dream. Guy is awesome. Sandro is great as well. Only other player I would buy this window is bale to play on the rw. To be honest I would have gone for mahrez. Proven prem player, shame he went to the dark side.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 19:31:04
Our midfield is fine. Fred replaces Carrick who barely played. We have options for a midfield two or three depending on the opposition.

Beast, we don't need that much surgery done at once. We need a top centre back, recruitment at left back and our defense will be good enough to challenge.

Our main problem is goals from the attacking supporting cast. Lukaku done well last year but I'll expect better in terms of goals. The rest of the forwards don't contribute enough in terms of goals. That's why Bale or a wide player that can get amongst the goals is paramount.

Lukaku was the only player to get into double figures. Martial scored 9, Lingard 8, Rashford 7, Mata 3 and Sanchez 2.

We already don't give too much away at the back and with an improved defense we could do even better. I like our midfield, they too could chip in with a few more but if we can get that one attacker in that can get us over the line against some of the trickier opponents in the league. I think we'd be able to challenge.

A centre back, a left back and a goal scoring winger and we're done!

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 19:35:23
That's one hell of a list.
I will only send out Smalling and Jones, Young, Mata and Darmian.
Give chance to Tuanzebe, TFM, and Parreira. And buy both new wing backs and Right side attacker.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 18:58:31
£70m for Pogba was based on what Ed02 said about us struggling to find a buyer and frankly, he has been very hit and miss (mostly miss) for us. Those were very rough sums, but what I was intending to do was show how we can transform our team from a bunch of plodders into a team that possibly dominates!

Agree1 2Disagree

18 Jul 2018 19:53:35
Do you honestly think we're going to lose money selling Pogba? Even with the way the market has inflated over the last two years since we've bought him. The lad has just had a brilliant world cup which he was an integral part of why they won it and you're suggesting we sell him off cheap so we can buy SMS for the same price?

I get that it's just an excerise to show how we can recycle the team and get us back to the top, but it's a tad silly.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 19:18:17
Beast, if we could get Thiago for 50m and Savic for 70m, I'd drive them over myself.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2018 08:32:12
That would take some doing considering the window shuts in 3 weeks.
Toby, Sandro and a RW should be the realistic target.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2018 10:06:21
Tbh Beast I don't think its not a bad list- unlikely but not bad. To anyone who thinks Pogba should be kept at all costs, -its not the fans doing that he has been offered to other clubs so let's get realistic!
I think martial would command more, as would shaw and getting rid of 3 cb is a bit risky in 1 window but mata - age, lack of game time and possible last big contract - deserves it; herrera not the player of 2 seasons ago.
players in, I think sandro could be on, savic would think would be more money but the positions identified are probably thiose that we need to get in. Still 3 weeks to go folks so who knows?

Everytime I think the human race is going to be ok, I come to this message board and am reminded how few humans were given brains. 70mil for pogba? Beyond wanting him gone, which is another topic on which fellow United supporters should have their heads checked, you think we're going to take a 30% loss on a player who just led his team to a WC at 25? Seriously, most of the time it feels like we're watching different teams or even sports.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2018 18:29:57
IMO, Jose was not getting the best out of the team last season. would be interesting to see how they fare with Rui Faria now gone.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2018 19:45:26
Been told Sandro will happen, 30m + Darmian. don't shoot the messenger lads but still been such an underwhelming window so far. Sandro, Fred and a RW would very much strengthen the team. Also, correct me if i'm wrong but didn't Ed002 say he expects us to go in with another offer for Alderweireld? If its accepted it'll definitely change the mood around the club. 🤞🏻.

Hope so. Darmian is on tour so if he leaves soon then we know something is happening.

I do think Alex Sandro will happen though imo.

He is full of shish, people only follow because he's had a few interviews with the club on his show.
He has no inside info.

17 Jul 2018 22:54:50
Lovely fella and has a few sources, seems to have been correct a few times.

So whoever he knows, knows something. Always comes across as quite honest in his views and opinions. And not a bullshitter.

Agree2 4Disagree

18 Jul 2018 05:54:51
I take it everyone is talking about pilib de brun, he is a bshitter, i would take anything he says with more than a pinch of salt, has little to no actual info, just look at his fellaini info, he is rarely correct and most of his views are basically conjecture.

Agree4 1Disagree

18 Jul 2018 08:39:35
The only one I really pay attention to on Twitter is Di Marzio or the guys who write for his website. They seem to be bang on with their info.

18 Jul 2018 08:59:23
I don't particularly believe in any of the ITK on social media that being said I do enjoy reading some of them.

But the worst one by far is Indykaila he's a joke.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any thoughts for Darmian to be included in any deal for Sandro. Three things to ponder: (A) MU are going out of their way this summer to avoid getting involved in any exchange deals, but know they might need to. (b) Lichtsteiner has already been replaced by Cancelo, (c) Manchester United have been talking to another club about Darmian moving.}

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I have explained.}

19 Jul 2018 18:39:20
be interested to know why the transfers feel like they take so long nowadays with United. I know they can be complex but Blind and Darmian were not part of any future plans so these deals should have been done and dusted last season and then formally announced when the transfer window opened. is it to keep the media happy to write speculation to sell their stories?

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2018 11:05:15
169 Goals at this years World Cup. Which means I'd like to invite.
Salah - 167
Jamesmack8 - 165
Red Reaper - 162
Laney - 160

To play in the 2019 Matt Hawker charity game.
Thanks to everyone who had a guess, and any drop outs I'll contact the next closest.

Next phase will be when Ed001 and 002 pick their two tribes to go to war.
We did a live chat where they took turns picking last year, I think we did it around November? So let's aim for then :)

Posted on behalf of Benny Baller.

No idea how true it is but am led to believe that Woodward is struggling on recruitment (perhaps Glazernomics, perhaps being led up dead ends) and the Manager is not happy with the situation. The next few weeks will be interesting.

Believable1 1Unbelievable

17 Jul 2018 09:36:47
If Mourinho is going to be that unhappy with the situation i hope both parties come to some sort of mutual termination before the season starts.

Better that than mourinho sulking for the first half in the season and the club has to end up sacking him.

Agree5 4Disagree

17 Jul 2018 12:12:59
or maybe its the fact that this is not football manager and it takes time to complete a transfer.

the panic is already starting to creep in.

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Jul 2018 12:56:27
If Jose was an adaptable, modest and inspiring manager he would realise that our squad is only 2 or 3 additions away from being up there with the very best.

However, his insistence on sticking with the only way of football he knows and picking fights with his players has left us with a needed squad overhaul in his eyes.

Agree6 3Disagree

Hi ed. I know you have just done a sharkpod and remember reading about madrids interest in Mata on another page.

Are they still interested in taking him this summer?

Love mata he gives his all and is such a professional

Cheers.

Hey ed002,
First of all thanks very much for taking time out of your extremely busy schedule to do the sharkopod.
Just a quick question on pogba, if and that's a big if united manage to move him on does that mean they might push for milinkovic-savic? thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - He is not the desired target for JM at this time as I have explained. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has an asking price which is making the interested clubs think twice. Although it is fair to say that one club has retained the services of Jorge Mendes to try to broker a deal with Lazio - but right now they are a long way apart in valuation. Another side made a significant offer including a player who is seen as a very good replacement for him, and that was turned down. So we will see what happens.}

17 Jul 2018 21:59:45
Any chance you could disclose which player was seen as a very good replacement for Sergej, Ed? :)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is not a MU player.}

18 Jul 2018 08:35:43
Could it have been Fabregas by any chance? He's been linked to Lazio recently.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2018 12:31:46
Most likely Real Madrid and Kovacic, if not then i'd guess Juve and one of their midfielders.
