Hi eds. I've seen multiple reports that Alex Sandro is now our main target for Left Back. Is this the case? Thanks as always.

{Ed004's Note - There is a good chance it is true. Ed2 alluded to it a few weeks back that he might become our primary target. Hopefully we can get a deal done}

Agree3 Disagree0

04 May 2018 17:04:13
The Brazilian that Jose was alluding to perhaps?

04 May 2018 18:37:22
I’d hope so Shappy. Too much risk going for Rose. His injury record scares me and if I’m honest I never really rated him that highly. Sandro on the other hand looks quality. Reminds me of Evra in his prime.

{Ed004's Note - Would be happy to see us go for Cancelo and Sandro this summer}

03 May 2018 21:20:13
Hey Ed-have you heard anything about dave the save buying a house in madrid, its been reported by a few supposed 'insiders' at los blancos apparently, bearing in mind the idea is to strengthen, surely jose wouldn't entertain this deal would he?

{Ed001's Note - not sure how this is related to anything. He has more than one house already in Spain, as do a lot of the Spanish national team, I assume it is a financial advisor that was involved with the squad that convinced them that property is a good investment. Sergio Ramos has a house in the village near to where my parents live, but I doubt he is returning to Sevilla any time soon.

Madrid would love to add him, he would like to go home, but they have a lot of players they need to replace, so I doubt they will go for him this summer.}

Agree1 Disagree0

Edoo1-cheers for that, hope your right, i also hope jose thinks about giving sam johnstone a go between the sticks, i think he's matured a lot this season at aston villa, and he seems to have grown into the position of being number 1 there.

{Ed001's Note - I think he will leave to be honest, probably for Villa, on a permanent deal.}

05 May 2018 06:42:17
Ed001-i think your right, but i wouldn't be surprised if another prem. club sneaked in and nabbed him, even if he cost 5-8 million he'd be a bargain., i reckon henderson might be sold as well, bit of a shame, but that's showbiz i suppose.

{Ed001's Note - maybe, but he seems quite settled at Villa. I would say it depends on them clinching promotion this season.}

02 May 2018 22:27:26
I think it's crucial that we get off to a hot start next season from our current squad there are quite a few that will have no world cup at all which is good. But we also have quite a few that should go fairly deep in the tournament.
Let's hope all or players come back injury free.
Pre season gets messed up with players coming back at different times. Let's hope they all come back injury free.

Agree6 Disagree1

03 May 2018 09:24:28
Let's also hope that the club prioritise being prepared for the big season ahead - not short term profit making taking up the focus with the manager/ players having to work around a commercial schedule. Pipe dream I know, but these things can be the difference maker in a highly competitive league.

I appreciate our rivals will also be on the commercial hunt, but stepping out of the pack could pay bigger dividends and give us a slight advantage, which we will probably need given how lethargic we have looked for 6+ years.

03 May 2018 17:33:01
Haven't posted in a while.

Lets hope we start to see more structure and organisation in the club ie boardroom, backroom staff. Still feel we still getting over a "hangover" since Sir Alex retired, in terms of we have declined and teams have caught up.

Feel like we have become dated in our approach. Still wondering why we haven't got a Director of Football at the club, unless Jose wants full control of the transfer within the club.

Our approach now until the beginning of next season will set the tone. Fans will be expecting us to compete and play more consistent. I feel like we are very inconsistent in terms of how the team plays. Manchester City have set a high standard. We must raise our game aswell or they will dominating the league as long Pep is their.

03 May 2018 18:54:56
Good post shane. The bar has been raised we must accept, meet, and overcome the challenge. In every aspect. We need a few good additions i'd like to see someone step up and become our leader on the pitch.

03 May 2018 19:17:03
If the bar had been raised then sterling would be the leagues top goal scorer.

03 May 2018 20:09:33
I agree. Valencia even though he been a great player for us throughout the years. He doesn't come off as a leader type. I know they generally give it to the player who has served the club the longest.

Personally we missing a Roy Keane character player even though their only probably a hand full of those types left. Daniele De Rossi comes to my mind.

Pogba is suppose to be a future captain. Is that because he a natural leader or because he is the biggest name at the club. He gets compared to Vieria a lot, but at this moment I don't see the sort of leadership (that Vieria had) in Pogba.

This is a example of what is needed in Pogba for example to truly become a great. If he wants to get better. Then it is the little things like this that will determine if he becomes a player that either fulfill this world class potential or be doesn't reach his full potential.

03 May 2018 23:19:04
Ken, we need a hot start, was that a typo? Did you mean head start? That’s what we need.

04 May 2018 10:40:07
Stand😁😁 it would be nice.

30 Apr 2018 12:52:15
Hi Eds,

Any truth in the rumors Buvacs is leaving Liverpool and Klopp in anger?

He would be a great addition to our backroom.

Someone mentioned the idea of getting another assistant for Mourinho, as Fergie did so often, to keep him tactically up to date.

Can’t see it happen for multiple reasons unfortunately.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - bit early to say, things might be resolved yet.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2018 13:34:23
Apparently Klopp's assistant is off, the plot thickens.

01 May 2018 16:15:18
Talk that he's Wenger replacement.

30 Apr 2018 08:54:09
Fellaini close to signing new deal according to Jose.

Agree12 Disagree2

30 Apr 2018 12:43:37
Did you ask him about any other transfers? 😉.

30 Apr 2018 13:17:37
Reply of the year so far Dodgy!

30 Apr 2018 13:20:39
Great reply.

30 Apr 2018 19:19:51
I know he got the winner against Arsenal, or should I say his Afro did. But I'd be devastated if we don't buy any quality midfielders in the transfer market, And we end up relying on Fellani to get us out of a pickle. We have got to hit the ground running next season, Claim our crown back, and hopefully see some attacking quality football . But please not with fellani.

30 Apr 2018 23:35:44
I hope Pereira gets a chance.

03 May 2018 17:37:28
why would anyone downvote hendonred's comment? Please explain, thank you.

28 Apr 2018 18:17:41
So a cetain brazilian is on the cards in the summer Mourinho has hinted.

Could it br Neymar hahhaha, most likely be Fred .

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Apr 2018 18:47:53
Most probably sandro.

28 Apr 2018 18:51:10
The return of Anderson.

28 Apr 2018 20:01:13
My missus has told me that a Brazilian might be on the cards for her before we go on our summer holidays this year.
I'd disappointed if she means Anderson, we're not going all inclusive!

28 Apr 2018 20:03:15
Oh yeah buy neymar and have 4 players for left wing.

28 Apr 2018 20:14:31
Lollll guys.

28 Apr 2018 20:15:42
Hope it is Sandro and we go for our main cm target of Savic.

28 Apr 2018 20:56:35
Fabinho perhaps.

28 Apr 2018 21:59:08
Casemiro, Alex Sandro, Fred, Willian, Fabinho, Felipe Anderson, Douglas Costa or indeed Neymar. Of course he could be talking about the return of Andreas Pereira. Lol. It's going to be a long summer.

28 Apr 2018 22:18:43
Jorginho born in Brazil but an Italian international. Would love it to be Rafael Da Silva. but i would reckon it be either Willian or Alex Sandro.

28 Apr 2018 22:19:56
Andersom Talisca was linked some time ago as well as Malcom.

29 Apr 2018 01:28:38
Heard Pele joining us? 😉.

29 Apr 2018 09:22:48

29 Apr 2018 17:25:47
I know it’s not Neymar, but I really hope it isn’t. Cannot stand him.

29 Apr 2018 18:39:35
Fellaini's new hairstyle.

30 Apr 2018 00:45:51
My guess is Willian.

30 Apr 2018 08:35:14
Won't be Willian, guys. He loves Chelsea and has played a lot for us this season. So it's not like he's had a lack of minutes either. He's staying at Chelsea.
(PS: if I'm being honest there are much better options for you out there than Willian. He's nearing 30, and would cost quite a bit. Also not the best end product mostly. )

You can have Pedro though if you want!

30 Apr 2018 11:08:10
'He loves Chelsea' lol.

30 Apr 2018 14:02:23
Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself @Jackson.

30 Apr 2018 18:45:42
Not really, LeeLee. Also GDS2, no need to laugh at that. In the age of mercenary footballers, Willian is a guy that's shown nothing but love for the club. He wants to be at Chelsea (and spurned Spurs in the process) and has said nothing BUT that.
His commitment to the club is without question, something which can't be said of guys like Tibo and Eden for example (who seem to like the thought of a transfer to Spain as well) . He's no superstar, but his loyalty makes him a valuable squad member.

I'm not here to troll or anything, just shedding some light on this as I'm probably more up to date on Chelsea related matters than you are. But thanks for the mature response :-)

01 May 2018 22:00:21
Ok Jackson. cue Willian moves to China for 300k per week in the summer.

04 May 2018 23:01:07
I'd bet on that not happening, Eric :)

23 Apr 2018 19:43:35
Would anyone be happy taking a punt on Seamus Coleman? I think he would be great down the right side. Do the Eds know if they’re is any interest? I know he wasn’t mentioned but I think there was interest before. Not sure if it’s still there?

{Ed004's Note - Haven't heard of any interest in him and I think it's a couple of seasons too late to be going after him}

Agree0 Disagree7

24 Apr 2018 07:58:12
Yeah I think that ship has sailed.

24 Apr 2018 19:20:45
Sailed and sunk hopefully.

19 Apr 2018 23:12:09
have to laugh according to the rags we are going to sell the best goalkeeper for 100 mill and buy barcas keeper who is second rate at best for 157 mill you can not make this stuff up muppets.

Agree7 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 13:52:45
Would prefer to give it to Romero.

21 Apr 2018 14:17:42
I agree dodgy, Romero is a quality keeper imo.

21 Apr 2018 14:32:59
Best backup GK in world football. Fight me.

19 Apr 2018 14:16:10
So, firstly, not in any rumours columns in the papers, not heard off the radio or on the internet by dodgy journos' or bloggers, but i was feeding some of the pidgeons (as you do), and one starting having a chat with me (after 4 tins of tennants i'm telling you we can all speak to the animals! ), and he said that a player jose is looking at is none other than marco arnautovic (spelling? ), jose had him as a youngster at inter milan and has kept a friendly interest at how he's progressed, so for all those who are going to dig me out about listening to rumours merchants on the radio or newspapers, you'd be wrong, all i can say is, when was the last time a pidgeon lied about a potential player joining! lol!

Agree3 Disagree5

19 Apr 2018 17:47:45
If it were a Seagull you were talking to I'd have a bit more confidence mate.

19 Apr 2018 19:14:39
They’re all called Stephen you know.

19 Apr 2018 19:16:34
Your defiantly for the birds 😀.

19 Apr 2018 19:24:18
Avian flu must be doing the rounds again.

19 Apr 2018 19:35:10
What happened to Ronnie? The king is dead, long live the king.

19 Apr 2018 19:57:52
Speaking of birds what happened to Ngiak?

19 Apr 2018 21:52:16
Be careful with pigeons they're manufactured as spies. They're everywhere watching and listening to everything.

If you don't believe me, answer this. Who's ever seen a baby pigeon?

I'm tellin ya. They're not to be trusted.

19 Apr 2018 22:24:46
Can believe I’m saying this but I miss Ronnie.

19 Apr 2018 22:33:00
Ronnie will be back in a couple of weeks.

19 Apr 2018 23:52:15
Is he on a de-tox? 😂😂.

21 Apr 2018 09:56:53
Ronnie is on a scouting mission looking at Peru under-14s versus a Sri Lankan XI. I expect ED002 will be giving more details of the promising young players on show in the next Sharkopod.

18 Apr 2018 11:40:50
Ed002 if you can oblige this question pls.
Is ManUtd ever keen to look at and sign any Asian players after the likes of JS Park and Kagawa?
Son is playing well for Spurs and I am sure sure there are talents in Asia. They are usually very hardworking and come cheap too. Don't complain much and observe rules.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs do not look to having players from particular parts of the world to join them - although obviously there are sponsors who would like to see that happen. There would be issues moving to England with Work Permits unless very significant prices were paid, hence you will find more across the rest of Europe than in England and Wales. Germany has seen a lot of Asian players, particularly from Japan and Korea - but numbers of such players (Korean are the most prevalent) in England and Wales has dropped over the past 6 or 7 years.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2018 12:57:29
Thanks omnipresent one 🙏.

20 Apr 2018 16:46:06
I know it was quite a while back now but I often thought the signing of Fangzhou had one eye on tapping into the Asian market. I think he played once for United in 3 seasons and he was unfortunately dubbed the Chinese Rooney by some sections of the press. Talk about setting somebody up for failure.
Sorry Red, but I had to read your last two sentences a couple of times, were they edited out of an old Mind Your Language script?
