Outs: Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Fellaini, Carrick (Retire? ), Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic

Promote: Demi Mitchell, Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, A. Pereira

Buy: LB (Rose/ Tierney), RB (Joao Cancelo, Meunier), CM (Cesc/ Milinkovic Savic), AM (Ozil), RW (Pulisic) CF (Lewandowski)

What do you guys think of this? or What would you change?

On a personal note, would love it if we could strengthen them six positions, promote youth like we've always done and get rid of the deadwood. And is it me or don't you think we need a right winger more than we need a left winger? we look utterly hopeless on the right every game, most of our attacks stem down the left as it is.

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Nov 2017 03:55:46
I don't know what Mr Mourinho thinks, but we do need RW than a LW.
Buy; LB-Rose, RB- Fabinho though is playing as mid now, CM- Sergej/ Soler/ Max Lopez, AM-Lorenzo Peregrin, RW-Malcom/ Dybala (He is versatile), CF-let Rashford play on his natural position, sharing the place with Lukaku.

25 Nov 2017 08:11:11
I would let Darmian, Shaw, Fellaini, Smalling, Carrick, Zlatan, Mata and Mkhitaryan all leave. However I would extent Blind's contract and keep him. He offers good squad coverage at CB, LB and CM, and to be honest without ever being spectacular he rarely let's us down.

I would promote Tuanzebe, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay.

I would bring in Rose, Meunier, either Milinkovic-Savic or Goretzka, then I wouldn't look for a striker but two creative forwards, my choices would be Lemar and Willian.

GK- DDG, Romero, J. Pereira.
FB- Valencia, Meunier, Rose, Blind, Young.
CB- Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Lindelof, Tuanzebe.
CM- Matic, Pogba, Herrera, Goretzka/ Milinkovic-Savic, McTominay.
AM/ W- Lemar, Willian, Lingard, A. Pereira.
ST- Lukaku, Martial, Rashford.

25 Nov 2017 16:50:02
i personally would be reluctant to let Luke Shaw leave until i have seen him play a consistent run of games in the first team

out: Darmian, Young, Fellaini, J Pereira, Mkhitaryan, Herrera, Carrick, Ibrahimovic, Blind/ Smalling, Borthwick-Jackson

In: Fabiano/ Florenzi/ Meunier/ Bellerin, Sessegnon, Milinkovic-Savic, Ozil/ Dybala.

26 Nov 2017 16:28:45
What is the level of grading to label a player as "deadwood", how does a player get into the deadwood bracket? And what are the other levels of player if 1 level has a category of dead wood?

24 Nov 2017 15:19:59
Rumours the wig if off psg 4 year contract imminent.

Shame really. Past 2 seasons he has been much improved and changed many of fans minds, mine of them.

But he's 30 and wants first team football week in week out.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 Nov 2017 15:50:23
And he thinks he is going to play week in week out at PSG? Verratti, Rabiot, Motta and Pastore. Not to mention Draxler and Di Maria can also play in more centrally.

24 Nov 2017 16:57:38
Jose must be off to PSG then.
If he wants to go then good luck to him. He's hard working an got the right attitude but he's a player that should be leaving.

24 Nov 2017 17:53:27
Agree mort. The sooner the better. Nice guy good pro but i don't like his style jose does but I'd rather see nctominey play.

24 Nov 2017 23:02:21
What does Jose know?

25 Nov 2017 08:41:44
Enough to buy play ibra but you question that. Keep your double standards to yourself.

25 Nov 2017 11:33:19
I'm sure Jose will see the light and stop playing lukaku on the wing.

25 Nov 2017 14:17:22
Id like to think so. I'm pretty sure it's not his plan and 2 15 min occasions does not suggest to me that it is his plan.

23 Nov 2017 15:40:02
Hi Eds do you see many outgoings in January. I know Fellani and Shaw have been talked about but is there any others. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - As I said in the Sharkopod don't rule out a James Wilson loan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2017 18:36:20
Ed 002 do you believe Wilson is regarded by Jose or other coaches as having a future with Utd.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know but there is a big step between a leading side thinking a player is good enough ant there being a career.}

23 Nov 2017 21:09:09
Cheers for the reply.

24 Nov 2017 00:42:38
Thanks Ed and for all yr hard work.

21 Nov 2017 10:15:56
Hi Eds is there any truth in RM now willing to meet our asking price of £70m for DDG? Are we really willing to let DDG go at that price or even let him go at all?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Put aside any thoughts about money, but REal Madrid have three goalkeepers in mind as replacements for Keylor Navas, one of which is De Gea. PSG also have De Gea on their list of goalkeepers they are looking to.}

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Nov 2017 14:01:36
In the world where 16 year and 18 year old kids go for 40 mn and 160 mn respectively the best keeper in the world should be going for a couple hundred million at the least or Madrid can do one.

21 Nov 2017 15:11:40
Unfortunatly CAN its not as simple as that. If he has 2 years on his contract and wants to go he holds all the cards or most of them anyway. If he won't sign a new deal then he has to be sold really.

I agree with you that the price is too low but with only 2 years left on his contract it diminishes our ability to negotiate from a position of strength. If he had 4 or 5 years left then you can charge what you demand or send them packing.

21 Nov 2017 14:58:57
Thanks vm Ed002 for the response. Most appreciated.
I do hope we don’t sell DDG. Hope too that DDG will stay with us for a while.

{Ed002's Note - Players come and go 666Red.}

21 Nov 2017 15:58:44
Thanks again for response Ed.
Who do you then think would take over DDG when he leaves? Do you think we will buy a new GK or promote within pls? Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United will bring in a replacement for De Gea when he goes. I avoided this in the Sharkopod as Real Madrid have three possible options in mind and until we see what is intended. Options will be similar to the the summer when it was thought he was leaving save for Ederson - who was always moving to Manchester City in any case. Jan Oblak and Samir Handanovic would almost certainly be considerations.}

21 Nov 2017 18:19:13
Many thanks 🙏 Ed. Good rest of the week.

22 Nov 2017 13:40:01
Ed002, are RM considering De Gea, Courtois and Lloris?

{Ed002's Note - No, try the Real Madrid page.}

20 Nov 2017 16:47:54
Just read on Manchester United Updates on Facebook that we have an interest in Valencias Carlos SOLER. Any of the Eds know him and know if rumour has any legs?

{Ed002's Note - I have dealt with this several times and on the Sharkopod.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2017 17:57:53
There is an interest as CM option, its possible but very expensive, and he is not the first choice, per Ed002.

21 Nov 2017 00:17:28
First choice being Milinkovic Savic at Lazio, If I recall correctly.

21 Nov 2017 07:38:40
Can anyone of you describe those two for me? What their playstyle is like etc.? Who would you prefer if you could chose? I have never seen them play. Thanks.

21 Nov 2017 08:53:12
Carlos Soler is technically good with very good passing and dribbling ability, able to pick spaces and drive the pass foward and very versatile, he sees and executes the final ball really well and is also a decent scorer. He can play as CM or RW, he prefers CM position.

Segej Milinkovic Savic, like Soler is technically better, physically dominant, can dribble, scores goals and versatile, but his passing ability not good as of Carlos Soler.

21 Nov 2017 17:02:45
Thanks, kenedyandy.

16 Nov 2017 19:27:56
I can't see the shark pod.

{Ed002's Note - https://goo.gl/XqXXKv

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2017 19:42:33
Hmmm! Lewandowski or Harry Kane!?!?
How do you decide that one! Cheers for that though Ed 002.

16 Nov 2017 20:00:26
Thank you very much ed, much appreciated.

16 Nov 2017 21:41:36
Thanks very much ed,

17 Nov 2017 11:57:41
Really kind to give us your precious time Ed, thank you. Love making time to sit down with a cup of tea and savour every second.

{Ed002's Note - Glad you enjoyed it.}

16 Nov 2017 18:06:50
Great Sharkopod Ed. always enjoy them to be honest.

You teased several times about the coach (Jose) being at United or not. I'm assuming that's still all up in the air?

Thanks again, keep up the great work!

{Ed002's Note - Probably.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2017 18:17:55
The Sharkopod is already out? I don't see it.

16 Nov 2017 19:30:28
Doesn't sound like there is much happening this Jan.
Interest moved on from dybala and Griezmann, could move for lewandowski in the summer to replace ibra and his outrageous wage .
Interest in a top end cb and savic again more likely summer if Jose still here.

16 Nov 2017 19:37:49
Ed can we have the link to the sharkopod posted here please.

{Ed033's Note -


Man Utd Sharkopod

16 Nov 2017 19:53:50
Jan - Try for Rose and maybe CM if Fellaini goes, maybe Ozil

Summer - Lewandoski, David and a CB (Umtiti or Upa Meccano? )

16 Nov 2017 20:38:14
Dayot Upamecano and if any there are to be any jan signings I thought it seemed more likely to be Rose and Fabregas.

16 Nov 2017 21:41:10
Can't see any coming in. More likely see players leave than anything. Only realistic one could be Fabergas. Going to have to wait to summer to see all the big names come in.

16 Nov 2017 21:43:18
I really can't see spurs letting rose go on jan. If rose is keeping his head down and not upsetting the camp I can see no reason for them to strengthen a rival for the remainder of the season.
Don't see much else on the horizon unless fellaini goes in Jan.
Not the best time to do business but sometimes a deal can be done that gives the squad a lift. I will live in hope for a left back.

17 Nov 2017 08:27:04
A car salesman a few months ago Claire store be one of Roses best mates whilst growing up, he did have pictures of the two of them playing golf at Forest pines on his phone.
He said tha Rose wanted to move to OT but Spurs were predictably playing hard ball. Make of it what you want but he s either a crazy stalker or telling the truth lol.

17 Nov 2017 11:55:57
Love those sort of rumours madhatter 🙂.

15 Nov 2017 22:54:43
Eds do u know if we are still looking at the full back positions, if so who are we targeting for rb? Can't think of any that are left.

{Ed002's Note - I don't see a RB forJanuary.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2017 14:14:37
Reports today stating fellaini has rejected offers to extend contrqct with us.

Dont normally buy in to the rags news but i wreckon this is probably true.

Agree5 Disagree2

15 Nov 2017 14:51:53
why are we trying to get him to extend? he's not good enough for one and he doesn't want to be here for two. few good performances in a red shirt do not mean he's united quality

get rid in jan and bring in goretzka.

15 Nov 2017 15:29:21
Disagree completely redwhiskey.

Fellaini is very good for the position/ role he plays which is an impact sub and he's proven this time after time especially under jose.

But if he wants to start week in week out then yes, he will have to move on.

15 Nov 2017 16:03:02
He is 29 he wants to start regularly. It's his last big opportunity to negotiate a last big contract on his terms.
Does he want to be a impact sub here and be a cover player or does he want to get the same or more money at a lesser club or a big club in a lesser league.
He is a very good pro and has shown great attitude and professionalism during his time here and yes he does possess obvious and different attributes to other players but he is not my cup of tea. I respect him as a man and as a professional and jose rates him so i'm indifferent. If the manager wants him In the squad for next season then fine but if the player doesn't want to be here and wants to try something else I won't be disappointed.
Put yourself in his shoes 20 starts and 30 bench appearances at united is the best he can hope for and that's before united sign another midfielder in the summer. He knows he can't command a regular starting position so i would admire him if he chooses to move to Turkey to play weekly and this is his last chance to do that and command huge wages if he goes on a free or nominal fee.

15 Nov 2017 17:48:59
get real zidane. he was a poor buy and is nothing more than a pump it up option. anti football in my eyes. he is professional and tries hard but that is it. he papers over the cracks with the odd goal. if mourinho rated him so highly he'd be starting. the football were playing at the min is dross enough before bringing that overpaid hairy git on. let him leave for whatever we can get. he's not the answer for anything. if fellaini is the best we can hope for in terms of impact then its no wonder we're a laughing stock at the moment.

15 Nov 2017 18:48:05
He is no where near United quality, he gives so many fouls away when brought on to impact a game which always seems to break up our play. Personally would have sold a while ago but def take whatever we can get in jan.

15 Nov 2017 19:04:07
Twenty u need to look at the stats for fellaini and his fouls/ bookings for us over the last 2-3 years.

Sorry gents but IMO he is a positive for UTD if he's happy o be a sub and he obviously isn't happy with that.

15 Nov 2017 19:42:51
It says it all when we send him on to try and win a game by just lumping it forward for his elbows to give away a foul, I don’t need to look at stats I’ve witnessed with my own eyes on far to many occasions. It was a panic buy, one in which we actually ended up paying more than if we bought him sooner. If we really wanted to him we would have paid the cheaper price a month prior. That move made us look a bit stupid. Do you really think He would get in the Chelsea line up? City? Spurs? No! It was a big mistake from day one.

15 Nov 2017 19:48:21
Lol whiskey I've been listening how crap fellaini is for ages yet one of the most successful managers in the history of the game loves him, he walks into arguably the most talented individual team in Belgium and gives nothing less than 100 % everytime he puts a united shirt on and has delivered in some very nervy/ important moments for us .

What does this guy along with endless others have to do to be given a little respect from our "fans"? .

15 Nov 2017 20:00:03
Whiskey u have your opinion and i have mine (the stats on elbows and bookings are fact though) .

There are more than a few people on this site who see the value in him and there are some who dont. As i have said, IMO i would like him to stay.

15 Nov 2017 20:01:38
DEANo does this most successful manager really rate him? Someone you throw on to try and scrape a result? That’s not rating someone! If I rate someone I play him week in week out a certain starter. Free up the wage bill let him go and get someone better in. I would give 100% if I played for United doesn’t mean I deserve to be at the club.

15 Nov 2017 20:10:01
Deano - We are seriously low on combative midfielders. Jose was never going to let him go with no time to bring in alternatives. Saying Jose loves him is a bit OTT, he is needed. It's that simple. I'd be very surprised if Jose was managing PSG or anyone for that matter and he gave Fellaini a call. We need Fellaini right now, it that simple.

15 Nov 2017 21:57:07
In some games you need the physical player to get stuck in.
It's not all about fancy players.
Fellani is good for us in both boxes for set pieces and he as a bit of heart.

15 Nov 2017 22:44:36
Mourinho clearly rates him as a squad player and I'm fairly sure he probably is better placed to make the call than any of us.

15 Nov 2017 23:18:25
Exactly leahy and RW.

15 Nov 2017 23:42:59
Mourinho likes Fellaini as he does what he is told. Is Red Whiskey, Maze? Or a Liverpool supporter? If he mentions, Park the bus, Maureen or Hoofball, then we will know.

16 Nov 2017 00:04:58
🤣🤣 MAZE has been MIA for a while now even afyer some questionable performances.

16 Nov 2017 13:56:31
I am a united fan just don't see the point in keeping a player who doesn't wanna be here, is nowhere near good enough and was a terrible buy. i'm entitled to an opinion.

18 Nov 2017 06:44:38
Some said over here that in some games you need the physical player to get stuck in. I think you have enough physicality in your squad to not be depending on Fellaini :D Arguably the most physical squad in the league.

13 Nov 2017 23:02:34
More rumours around that we are to splash a load of money on buying Gareth Bale from Real Madrid next Summer. Bale has been a very good player but he is 29 next Julu. Perhaps more importantly he has missed 40 of Reals last 60 games through injury. I suspect his best days may be behind him.

Agree11 Disagree1

14 Nov 2017 00:15:06
Wouldn’t touch him Cinderella. Always preferred griezmann so we can only hope.

14 Nov 2017 08:46:20
Griez and Bale are now quite different players but I think the ship has sailed on Bale and we should be looking to players who can stay fit but be equally effective. He’s too bulky now and his explosive pace means he’s always susceptible to an injury. Personally I think the full back positions, especially left back are much more urgent positions to address to give us more balance and width.

14 Nov 2017 09:43:03
I like Bale but his injury record just gets worse and worse, I don’t think he is worth the risk any more.

14 Nov 2017 10:35:43
I'm a big bale fan and would have loved us to get him last summer, other posters pointed out it was to risky as he's injured a lot and now to be honest they are being proved correct . Very hard to justify big fee and big wages .

14 Nov 2017 13:38:01
If Real believed in Bale then he wouldn't be leaving. Too many injuries have cost him. Back to Spurs would be good business.

14 Nov 2017 14:49:45
I'm also a long term admirer of bales but at his age and likely cost its a huge risk given his injury record.
Bale at his best is awesome but are we likely to see him fit often enough?
A very reluctant no from me.
Sods law tells me he will sign for spurs and play 150 games in a row if we pass him up.

15 Nov 2017 11:52:55
Have never wanted bale and bearing in mind that he is having a bad season at AM I am not convinced that griezmann is worth the money he would cost. Since the board may be unwilling to sanction another huge signing 30 million on ozil might not be the worst shout especially as he has worked with Jose before. I would also agree that sorting out our full back options should be the main priority.

15 Nov 2017 14:25:52
Bale is on a downward slide. Griezman looks Barcelona bound. I still say Sanchez would do great at UTD - Jose wanted Willian in the summer (according to willian himself) Sanchez is a better player, works as hard if not harder than willian too. Seems to be destined for City though.

15 Nov 2017 15:12:21
If anybody says Bale, I’d rather bring back CR7 since he is more fit than Bale. Having said that, I’d rather we not waste our money getting these 2 “on downhill” players. They’re both getting on with age and although they have experience, Zlatan is enough. We should be looking to “invest” in younger and good potential players. With the same money I’m sure we can buy a few defenders and wingers rather than spend unwisely on Bale and CR7.
