Well ed002 hope all is well.
Do you know what the club plans are for dean henderson next season.
He has had 2 great loan spells over the past 2 seasons. He looks like a a very good keeper and unless ddg leaned his path to our 1st team looks cut off.
I think he will be Englands no 1 by the time the euros come around.
Thanks have a great day.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know Ken. There might well be interest in DDG again this summer; actually I am pretty sure there will be interest. I don’t see MU opting for DH right away and second pick for the first team really needs to be an older player who can also help with the training of the younger GKs, because chances outside of injury are typically limited to the League Cup (or what ever it is called now).

24 Mar 2019 07:39:41
Henderson does look a great keeper in the making but if ddg leaves its a big risk to throw him straight into the 1st team, it is tempting because the last thing I want to see is him leave looking for 1st team football, if ddg does leave maybe give romero next season as number 1,grant number 2 or 3 and vgive Henderson a prem loan so he has got prem experience.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 08:18:34
If DDG leaves I would be tempted to make Romero first choice with Henderson as second choice/ fighting it out for first choice.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 09:57:29
Like so many other positions in world football there's a dearth of genuine world class replacements out there. I'd be happy to go with Romero for a season with Grant as number 2 and Henderson as third choice but playing in the cup games and selected league games to see how he does. It saves money for other positions then and I suspect that pleases our glorious commander in chief as well. If we can improve the defence and midfield we'd concede less chances and wouldn't need the keeper to bail us out as often anyway.

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Mar 2019 10:20:23
The issue we will have when DDG leaves is whoever replaces him will have to live with constant comparisons. The pundits will say "De Gea would have saved that" etc.

We could spend 60-80m on a replacement such as Oblak or Donnarumma. But they will still be a step down on DDG. Ultimately we will be on a hiding to nothing. Whether we spend 80m or make Romero first choice the pundits will say the same things.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 11:24:51
I'm with you there Shappy, Romero has proven to be a very good back up and while he isn't at De Gea's level, any mistake from any keeper signed would be viewed as something that De Gea would not have done. Henderson would ideally be back up for a year or 2 then take over the number 1 spot.

Save the cash for other areas of the squad which need investment.

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Mar 2019 22:07:45
Ed002 thanks.
Its a certainty that ddg will have other offers i would think.
Rm psg and juve are all in the market for a top keeper i would imagine. With 1 year on his contract the market value will not reflect his true value to the team and club. Another mess of a contractual situation by the looks of it. The club are in a vulnerable situation on this one.
Henderson is a very good keeper. Lacks experience but i would love to see him take the top spot and flourish.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Mar 2019 05:58:59
Real already have Courtois.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yes and he has been a disaster so far.}

25 Mar 2019 16:33:01
What is your take on Courtois ed1? I personally think he is/ was massively overrated. He hasn't lived up to the promise he showed 6_7yrs ago. He seems to regress with every game he plays.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I agree with you. He never improved if anything he regressed recently.}

26 Mar 2019 17:54:43
DDG is in my opinion the best there is, but Romero is bloody good. With a world class defender the chances on goal will go down. Stam left, we carried on. Beckham left, we were ok. Ronaldo went and we won trophies. De Gea goes, we will carry on as we have in the past.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 03:04:39
Morning Ed's reports are coming out this morning that Ander Herrera May he signing with PSG? Does anyone know if there is any substance to this?
We're all aware that his contract is up for renewal. I for one would not like to see him go. He demonstrates the heart and fight we need the players to have. A commodity this squad is low on at times.

Believable0 5Unbelievable

22 Mar 2019 08:26:49
It's a bit worrying when we prioritise keeping the likes of Jones but seem to not be worried about losing Herrera. Who in my opinion deserves an extension and should be valued higher at this club.

Agree11 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 09:28:05
One of those ones if reports are true that psg are offering him a salary increase and a 3/ 4 year deal then i don't think we will compete with that as we should be wary of offering multi year deals to players entering their 30s.

Especially after the alexis sanchez debacle. But herrera is very much low down on the list of players i would like to see leave in the summer.

Ironically the perfect spanish midfielder (saul) to replace herrera will be playing at the other club in manchester next season.

Shows what you can do if you plan and prepare properly for transfer windows and are good at recruitment.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 12:22:32
Woodward has snookered us behind the black ball. A club with our turnover and money making ability is currently at our capacity for wages. Woodward and the club's lack of a plan is stopping us from moving forward. Ed's short termism in signing players on huge wages ie Zlatan and Alexis was a disaster.

Ed002 said we were in precarious situation with our wages which was solved when we paid Zlatan off and got him off the wage bill. Alexis wages dwarf our best players. So we have very little wiggle room to get new players in without getting players off the wage bill. De Gea, Herrera are let run their contracts dangerously low but Smalling and Jones are signed up even though both could/ should be surplus.

The man with a career in banking might be good at getting a top dollar noodle sponsorship but the actual running of the football side of the club is a shambles.

Agree7 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 14:43:55
What happened to the talk of a Director of Football being appointed? Where we'll see Herrera getting a contract instead of Phil Jones.

It's fantastic that Ole and Phelan are at the wheel but we'll still need a better football man than Ed to take care of the football matters.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 15:17:01
Cant see that happening any time soon Killerscones. Woodward has both power and influence in who could and would be appointed and as its obvious he models himself off Kim Jong-un, why would he want to relinquish power. We shouldn't just settle for, or get for getting sake a DoF but really can't see it happening whilst EW is in his current role.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 16:53:28
We have a director of football: Ed Woodward. He should just cut out the middle man and appoint himself as manager as well.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 01:18:48
Well then the same problems from the last nearly 6 years are going to keep happen. History repeats itself if there isn't change. Please Ed do the right thing. Give the football side of things over to someone in the know and fade into the corporate background where you're a wizard. Horses for courses.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 09:08:37
Is he even a wizard on the financial side? It can't be that difficult to sell marketing your company with a club like united.

Agree1 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 18:11:32
Mort. Could you do it to that extent? Ed W is absolutely brilliant at what he does. Unfortunately the club passed too much power to him. That’s not his fault. He’s just in the wrong position. But he’s an intelligent bloke and very good on the financial side. Unfortunately the club let him be in charge of too much and now us fans are paying the price.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 22:43:09
Wazza, ed002 has said the problem with finding a Director of football is Woodward. The man with the job to find a DoF, doesn't want to relinquish control. He'd rather spend the entire summer flashing a bit of thigh at Gareth Bale or another "superstar" player instead of trying to build a squad with an identity.

He's a huge problem on the football side of things.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 08:16:37
Mumbles I don’t dispute that and I agree with you 100%.

Mort was questioning if he’s good on the financial side. He clearly is. He’s got where he has because he’s an expert in his field. Unfortunately somebody decided to give him more control over matters he has little experience with and EW decided to go for it. I don’t think any of us can question his ability on financial matters. It’s football matters where he’s seemingly is out of his depth.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 10:00:37
He's perceived as an expert in his field. Is it really so hard to propose commercial deals between a globally known sports team and globally known companies? I think ed1 said it best previously.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 00:02:14
Hope these rumours of Herrera to PSG are media rubbish. Would be gutted to see him go. Any truth in it Eds?

Can't believe Pogba came out with the dream of Madrid comment at this very important time of our season. If he wants out, just get rid but tell him to shut it until the end of the season. This will go on now until the end of the Summer window and probably include DeGea too.

Believable2 3Unbelievable

20 Mar 2019 19:35:51
Apparently Madrid interest has gone (per Ed002). But we have been told many times Pogba wants out.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Mar 2019 20:05:06
Real Madrid's interest moves elsewhere, so now Mino and Pogba react by batting their eyelashes to try and bring them back into the frame.
He doesn't want to be at the club, regardless of how good he is if a good offer comes in for him and he wants to go we should accept it and move on.

The sames goes for any player who doesn't want to be at the club, including DDG. If we are to challenge again we need players who want to be here, and will fight to be here.

Rio mentioned something the other day about United needing to sign players with the right DNA.

We need players with the right attitude as well as having the talent. If Pogba can do that then great, glad to have him. But if he can't have the right attitude and he wants to be elsewhere, then thanks for the last three years, wish you luck and off you go.

Agree15 3Disagree

20 Mar 2019 20:26:32
I am not bothered if Pogba stays or not as I find him extremely frustrating to watch.

Brilliant and a world beater in one game and then doesn’t turn up for the next 3.

No doubt about his talent and ability just a question mark over his application and desire in some games.

I know Ronaldo is a different type of player but his desire is unquestionable and is what sets him apart from the rest imo. Whichever team he plays for he just raises the whole team as he demands it from himself and others.

Look at the fall of Real Madrid since he left. Yes not all down to him leaving but that has had an effect. Then he joins Juve and takes them up a notch. No way they would of turned around a 2-0 deficit in the first leg against Athletico 12 months ago.

Pogba needs to have a similar effect in the teams he plays for in order to be truly great and make all the circus and side shows worth it.

Put Roy Keane’s playing brain in Pogba and you would have the best CM player ever seen. Alas this is not the case.

If he wants out then let him go and take the money.
We can re-build and bring in young players that we can mould into the Utd way.

20 Mar 2019 22:05:50
Why are people so upset, he said Real Madrid would be A (not THE, but A) dream team for any player. From a sporting point of view, that is true. But he also said he's happy at United and the present atmosphere. Just thing it's been blown out of context as usual.

If it was Herrera that said RM is 'A' dream for any player would people be saying the same?
Absolutely not.

Some may see it as a nice thing, i personally see it as flash. The rings that Pogba got for the French world cup winning squad are just bling. Sums up Pogba for me.

Agree1 2Disagree

21 Mar 2019 22:01:27
That recent Zlatan comment on co92 regarding Utd makes perfect sense now, Riaola using his pawns to make moves.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 06:37:00
Morning Ed,

Just curious as to whether interest remains in Dybala and whether Juve hold an interest in Sanchez?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - The interest from Dybala is from Inter Milan and an exchange involving Icardi has been proposed. No one is interested in Sanchez because of his wages.}

20 Mar 2019 09:36:40
His wages plus the fact he hasn't had a good game in 18 months to 2 years.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 09:55:16
Griezmann would be a good option for us in RW position. He has more pace and relentlessly presses from the front.

Agree1 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He doesn't play on the right wing.}

20 Mar 2019 12:56:05
Since when did greasyman play RW?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 16:37:32
He's more of a right tool than a right wing.

Agree7 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 18:07:25
Griezmann on the Right side drifting in along with a front 3 with Martial and Rash would be good for counter attacks.
Although Griezmann prefers to operate on left or through middle.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 20:10:46
We need to stop signing square pegs for round holes. Griezmann is a Woodward signing. Big name, poor attitude and not what we need player wise.

We need the right players for us to move forward and progress. A CB who can play out from the back. A RB who can cross and defend. A creative midfielder who can help retain the ball and offer a creative outlet. Then a RW who can stay wide, cross and create goal scoring chances.

It doesn't matter whether they have a big name or not, just that they have the right attitude and they do the job the team needs.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 21:58:48

I like it. Who do you have in mind for them 4 positions?

18 Mar 2019 22:19:22
Ed002, are United still interested in Carlos Soler? You mentioned him as a possible target a while back and I've kept a close eye on him since. Looks like he will be some player.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - No, but there is interest from another EPL side in Carlos Soler.}

19 Mar 2019 06:32:16
Thanks, that's a shame he looks like he will become a top player.

17 Mar 2019 17:35:13
Hi Ed,
Are Real Madrid still pursuing De Gea?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There are a couple of sides who could look to DDG.}

18 Mar 2019 06:31:04
I'm guessing it's PSG and Juventus.

14 Mar 2019 11:55:24
Hi Ed002,

Are Dortmund open to selling Sancho in the summer considering the exit of Pulisic.

Is the interest from United genuine?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - No, they are not looking to sell him. A couple of EPL sides including MU have shown and interest but nothing has come of it.}

14 Mar 2019 15:42:38
He's young and inconsistent. Let him develop over in Germany for another couple of years.

Agree5 3Disagree

14 Mar 2019 18:12:46
Yeah agree Shappy. The press is linking us to him almost everyday, so wanted know the truth behind it.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 10:50:18
Sounds like Woodward, build up rumours of big money transfer for rising star who's actually not for sale, chase him all summer with no success then on deadline day turn around and announce with signed a sponsorship deal with persil, gorilla glue and Kawasaki o an by the way I've signed Willian.

Agree6 3Disagree

14 Mar 2019 08:24:43
ED002,

A few reports out there stating that Pogba has had a change of heart and would like to stay. Have you heard anything to that affect? I know you've long stated he was still interested in leaving.

Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - It would be one report being repeated. I have no idea I am afarid.}

14 Mar 2019 10:23:22
I would very much imagine whether Pogba stays or goes will depend on what options are available to him.

His dream is to play in Spain, so if either Barcelona or Real Madrid come in for him I would expect him to push to leave.

Beyond those two its really only PSG or Juventus who could come in for him. How he feels about moving to them I very much expect will come down to money/ prestige.

Agree3 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 16:24:55
Thanks ED002.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 10:46:08
Would Barcelona be interested with de jong joining and the need to replace pique and Suarez in the next few seasons? I imagine Madrid now zidanes back is the main contender.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want to make significant changes but need to top up funds (significantly) by selling. Juventus remain very keen on Pogba but will look to an option thay have as an alternative. The change of coach will make little difference to their interest.}

13 Mar 2019 10:45:05
The press are claiming we will not be going for a CB instead we will consentrating on Sancho, why not do both?

Believable2 0Unbelievable

13 Mar 2019 11:08:02
"The press are claiming"

Agree6 1Disagree

13 Mar 2019 11:27:27
I named the paper but must be a no no here, I just think it's silly season all season for us and rumours everyone knows we need to a CB.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 12:48:29
If the paper name didn't make it through then shows how credible it is.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 13:15:27
I wouldn't worry AllgoneRom, the papers have no idea. We may sign a new CB, we may not. It will depend on if the manager feels we need one. I don't think signing Sancho will change anything. He'd fill the RW position nicely and there will still be funds for a CB if needed.

I laughed last week when the press reported a £100m fee for Sancho. TalkSport managed to fill a whole show with that story, which on here we know to be complete rubbish.

Thankfully we have the Eds insights.

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Mar 2019 17:17:00
Eds could this really be a believable option.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It sounds like absolute nonsense. The club want a CB.}

Could you see them going for Aldeweireld as the cheapest option freeing up money for Sancho and others.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No.}

14 Mar 2019 05:13:38
Ed already mentioned that Ruben Diaz is our primary target. Skriniar, Koulibaly are other defenders we hold interest.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 06:21:47
Militao has joined Real Madrid so he’s one we can cross off.

It will be interesting to watch Zidane (this time around) as it looks like he will build what will be known as his team (despite the obvious influences from above) rather than managing a team of stars he inherited.
