Is there anything in the 'reports' that we could sign Özil on a free at the end of season Ed002? can't seem to find anything about it with the search function? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Efforts are being made right now to see what interest there will be in a January sale and at this time I am only aware of one side indicating they wish to discuss the possibility - and it is not MU.}

Agree2 Disagree0

Nice one Ed, hope we show some interest, class player.

{Ed002's Note - He is not a typical Mourinho player - but if MU were to make an offer in January it is possible a deal could be done.}

03 Oct 2017 12:05:25
Top player on his day, but I hope we stay clear to be honest, better players out there that suit us more than Ozil.

03 Oct 2017 12:06:55
He's eligible for UCL football so I can see this happening. He would play midfield where we are short. Three man midfield at times with Pogba and Matic. Competition for Herrera.

Doubt we'd pay £50m for him if he wasn't going for cheap, but as a bargain we will go for him. Maybe even Sanchez too with City being his most likely destination.

{Ed002's Note - He isn't eligible for CL.}

03 Oct 2017 12:15:41
Just want to see him at the level he was at during his time in Madrid, maybe Jose can get the best out of him again🤞🏻.

03 Oct 2017 12:38:49
I think with it coming down to signing on fees and wages. We as a club can match anyone so would be very surprised if we didn't contact either player via their representatives and let them know our interest. What we would be willing to offer them. Whether they were interested is another matter.

03 Oct 2017 13:26:46
He could come in to play for PL rotating with the team and we can have others for CL games as well. Remember if we are competing in all front we need a expansive team. One which we have backups etc in case of injuries and/ or fatigue. He could potentially lead he charge for the FA and League Cup games.
I may be wrong but happy to hear other opinions.

03 Oct 2017 14:02:25
Yeah because a top class player is going to sign to play league cup football.

03 Oct 2017 12:34:34
Ed002, Oh okay, I thought with Arsenal being in the Europa. Have rules been changed in recent times or has this always been the rule?

{Ed002's Note - they changed.}

03 Oct 2017 18:52:33
Has he played for Arsenal in europe this season. I didn't think so which means he would be able to play for us if we did sign him.

03 Oct 2017 21:18:28
Correct oxford. But if he played in europa league he wouldn't be available. If arsenal intend selling him in jan they won't cup tie him i'd imagine as it decreases his value and would reduce the amount of possible suitors.

30 Sep 2017 03:18:43
Do any of the Ed (s) have any information on Angel Gomes and whether Barcelona are actually trying to lure home away?

{Ed001's Note - and Madrid are interested, not sure about the luring part but both sides would be happy to add him to their B team squads.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2017 13:27:21
He seems level headed though and the club rate him. You think he'll stay?

{Ed001's Note - so far he has, but it really depends on what the club's plans are for him to be honest. He will want to see a clear path for him to progress.}

30 Sep 2017 13:48:07
Ed how do you rate gomes as a player?

{Ed001's Note - looks good from what I have seen, but he is still very young and needs firm handling to keep his feet on the ground. Actually good is underselling him, he looks one of the better prospects in world football right now in his age group. If he can avoid injuries and keep working hard on his game, he has a bright future ahead of him.}

29 Sep 2017 14:09:01
Hi ed 001 wondered if you know anything about how long pogba will be out.

{Ed001's Note - actually funny you should say that, I was just doing the match previews for tomorrow and asked and, as of now, the suggestion is he is out until December I was told. Personally I am taking that with a pinch of salt, as I think the person I asked may have been getting mixed up with Ibrahimovic and Rojo, who are both due back late December-ish time, however one of the sites I check for extra info on injuries also says December for Pogba. So it may be correct, but Man Utd themselves are not confirming any date.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2017 10:00:50
Cheers ed as I asked the question Mourinho did his presser saying it was long term.

Shame but I suppose we just have to suck it up and get on with it there's plenty of talent in the squad.

24 Sep 2017 06:02:15
Read that RM offering Bale to us so they can pursue Greaseman. Now I am not sure if we should go for any of them. I'd rather we save the money and buy Dyabala ( another report) .
Dyabala will suit us better and we should still focus on getting another couple of guys for defense and wings given that Shaw is still not up to par. Just in case Shaw doesn't make it for whatever the reason.
With the above I am quite sure Jose will be able to deliver big time as what he said (3 seasons) and hopefully we can launch challenges for a treble?
What'd you guys think?

Agree3 Disagree1

24 Sep 2017 06:23:13
Also interesting to see what happens when Ozil runs out his contract. Will he join us?
What're your thoughts? Eds great to hear your take on these pls.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what is happening with Griezmann now, he was only staying because they couldn't get Costa, so you would have to think he will go. United are still interested. However I don't know of any deal being in the offing.

I expect Oezil to leave England personally, it doesn't matter what he does here the media are on his case about laziness. At one point last season, a stats company put out the stats which showed he covered more ground than every one else on the Arsenal team and more ground than most players in the Prem. The media turned it into a joke, when they even bothered to acknowledge it at all. They mostly ignored it so they could continue banging the drum about his laziness. He would have to be mad to stay in England with the media who have no interest in truth. He can go back to Germany or Spain, where he is a massive hero, or go to Italy, where they would love him.}

24 Sep 2017 07:45:47
Insightful Ed001. Most appreciated with many thanks.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

24 Sep 2017 12:04:12
Dybala is a player I'd love to see playing 10 for us! He's got 10 goals in 5 games for Juve.

{Ed004's Note - Dybala would be a fantastic signing however I think he is destined for one of the Spanish sides}

24 Sep 2017 13:10:15
We'll have to go get Dele Alli instead then Ed.

{Ed004's Note - I think Alli is a bit overrated and not worth what Spurs would charge us}

24 Sep 2017 13:10:22
Id much prefer Dybala over Bale ir Griezmann. That said i'd take Ozil over those two as well.

24 Sep 2017 13:49:41
Ed001 amazing that anybody could label Oezil lazy. He id's always I the mice always showing for the ball. He breaks into the box well. Just because a player isn't flying into tackles every 2 mins doesn't mean he is lazy. I think he is a superb player technically excellent and tactically very astute. Not sure there is any truth in the reports of him wanting to go to united but it wouldn't shock me. I can see a couple of players looking to exit united in jan in search of games to make world cup squads and I'm sure there are a couole at united that would interest wenger so stranger things have happened.

{Ed001's Note - the problem with the English media is that they will look to drag down anyone. The guy was playing well so they couldn't criticise his ability, instead they had to pick at his workrate because it seems only players flying into 50/50s every few seconds are seen to be trying. It is incredible, he tracks back 50 yards in a game and the commentator completely ignores it, but they make a point of every moment he is not racing back 80 yards to throw himself into a tackle! They should be trying to see a balanced picture and look at what he does bring to the team as well as what he doesn't.}

24 Sep 2017 14:06:24
True ed. I thunk he is a class act. He does seem a little stale or de-motivated at aresenal.

{Ed001's Note - the whole team do at times look stale and demotivated.}

24 Sep 2017 14:40:59
that would be a "dirty move" if Griezmann moves from Atletico to Real Madrid.

25 Sep 2017 18:48:55
Won the treble last season 666red.

27 Sep 2017 22:26:33
Was always disappointed we didn't get Ozil when he went to Madrid, and when he went to Arsenal. Class act.

{Ed007's Note - I was the same, Stevie. I've always liked Ozil and the Arsenal move was never going to work imo.}

23 Sep 2017 08:18:43
Not trying to piss off any of the Eds, but I have one question.

With Costa moving back to Atleti in January, does it open the door for Griezmann to make a move as well?

And do United still have an interest in him?

Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - Griezmann only held off the move because they could not replace him, so it is possible that he may decide to move. However, I expect him to wait until summer personally, depending on how Atleti are doing at that point.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2017 08:54:16
Do we have alternatives to Griezmann? Not really a fan tbh.

23 Sep 2017 09:27:27
Thanks, Ed.

Do United still have an interest in him? Do you see us making a move for him in the summer?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know off the top of my head sorry.}

22 Sep 2017 17:30:31
Do any of the Eds know the situation with Fellaini's contract? Is he likely to sign or is this going to be his last season for us.

He has changed a lot of opinions through sheer hard work and his form at the moment and for much of last season has been very good. He is limited yes but tries his hardest every week and we cannot ask for more from him.

Personally I'd like him to sign on again.

{Ed002's Note - nothing is resolved.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2017 18:11:59
Thank you.

17 Sep 2017 07:25:05
Now rumors say pogba could be out for upto 3 months.

Agree1 Disagree16

15 Sep 2017 19:48:47
Ed, just wondering if we have any interest in Dendoncker? We were linked with him in the summer and supposedly we touched base with his reps and I've seen some more links today. Thought he stood out for them last year when we played them, even over Tielemans, so just thought I'd enquire, many thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - There is long term interest from when JM was at Chelsea.}

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Sep 2017 08:30:32
Reports today that pogba could be out for six week and that Jose wants ozil.

Agree5 Disagree4

14 Sep 2017 10:05:11
Shame about pogba hopefully herrera or fellani can do well in the b2b role hopefully pogba's back for the pool game as for ozil would stay well clear of the lazy frog.

14 Sep 2017 13:00:41
Ozil gets a lot of bad press for me a lot of the time unjustly so and is one of the scapegoats in that Arsenal team when things aren't going well, his decision making and final pass is 2nd to none, lukaku and rashford would be licking there lips to play with him.

14 Sep 2017 13:21:19
Stratford
He is a star player for a very good German national team . Player of the year 5 times in the last 6 year.

14 Sep 2017 12:54:23
I would happily take Ozil, especially on a free Stockport. He gets so much undeserved criticism for when Arsenal play bad, again this season he's created so much for them but they waste everything he creates, making him look like he's had a poor game. If Jose can get him to the level he was at during their time in Madrid then we will be in for a treat as he's that good.

14 Sep 2017 14:46:18
Who would you drop for Ozil?
And would that mean Griezmann is off the table?

14 Sep 2017 17:20:19
In a world where an average footballer can cost 40 million, Ozil on a free is a no brainer. Judge a fishes ability to climb a tree and you won't be happy wit the results. Ozil isn't there for his work rate and off the ball pressing. He's there as the key to unlocking a defence. Stick him in amongst world class talent and he'll shine.

14 Sep 2017 18:09:30
Pretty sure Ozil ran about 1.5km further per game than Sanchez last season. I think his laziness is a myth. We've played well with Mata wide right this season and I'd see Ozil as an upgrade, so wouldn't be wholly against this at all.

17 Oct 2017 11:41:12
I would drop Mata and play Ozil in the number 10 role. he would be our Scholes which we have never been able to replace. Would have to play 4231.

Stick Griezeman on the right and rash/ martial based on from and merit get to play on the left with lusaka on top and then you have a scary team with Pogba and Matic in there.

12 Sep 2017 13:28:15
Is it true that martial is not in the squad for tonight's game? Seems odd.

Agree0 Disagree2

12 Sep 2017 13:45:53
Seems odd too, unless he is getting rested for the next premier league game.

12 Sep 2017 13:50:01
Yeah been wanting to find out. His name doesn't seem to be in the list?

12 Sep 2017 13:56:16
Injured?

12 Sep 2017 15:10:36
No report of an injury yet jred. My fear for martial at the beginning of this season was that he would be the odd man out when all were available and that he wouldn't get the game time he needs to progress. Its early days but 119mins of football over 5 games despite his decent form speaks volumes. The lad needs game time I'm not sure he will get enough under jose when all are fit.
Maybe he is being held back for the weekend if the reports of him not playing tonight are true. If not it begs the question does jose fancy him? He has done well coming off the bench even if he didn't excel In the game he started.

12 Sep 2017 15:51:18
Ken
I think he will be fine, going to be a top player .
Been involved in every game this season and scored 2 goals .

12 Sep 2017 17:24:48
I think he looks our most dangerous player to be honest, very quick and direct. He should get plenty of game time. I'll be very dissapointed if he's phased out.

12 Sep 2017 18:42:57
He's in the starting 11?

12 Sep 2017 18:53:32
Strange. Not in the squad but starting.

12 Sep 2017 19:02:04
One reporter started a story about him not arriving with the other players and it escalated from there. A New Ed has joined the ranks and he posted a piece about how stories are made up for click bate interesting read.

12 Sep 2017 19:25:05
Strong attacking lime up. New back 4. Can't wait.

{Ed004's Note - Looks like the resting of Valencia has started earlier this year}
