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.}

1.) 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.

2.) 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.

3.) 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.}

4.) 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.}

5.) 21 Nov 2017 18:19:13
Many thanks 🙏 Ed. Good rest of the week.

6.) 22 Nov 2017 13:40:01
Ed002, are RM considering De Gea, Courtois and Lloris?

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



07 Oct 2017 09:48:30
Eds could you confirm if we are really going for Emre Can? I'd be really surprised if we are.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 07 Oct 2017 21:50:19
can-'t be true, Most Pool supporters i talk to would love to see the back of him, not United pedigree.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 22:51:48
He is a very talented midfielder that has been messed around with his playing position.

3.) 08 Oct 2017 09:40:00
He came over here highly regarded and ultimately has disappointed.

4.) 08 Oct 2017 03:46:40
Thanks Ed002.

5.) 13 Oct 2017 09:51:16
Most pool supporters would love to see the back of him? You must be talking to some ****ed up fans then. I think most pool fans would like to see him sign a new contract.



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?


1.) 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.}

2.) 24 Sep 2017 07:45:47
Insightful Ed001. Most appreciated with many thanks.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

3.) 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}

4.) 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}

5.) 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.

6.) 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.}

7.) 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.}

8.) 24 Sep 2017 14:40:59
that would be a "dirty move" if Griezmann moves from Atletico to Real Madrid.

9.) 25 Sep 2017 18:48:55
Won the treble last season 666red.

10.) 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.}



19 Apr 2017 03:11:09
DDG going to RM for £70m. Nice biz by Jose. Now to spend the money on a strong CB and 1-2 key attackers and maybe another midfielder. Looking good.


1.) 19 Apr 2017 05:20:55
where did you hear that?

2.) 19 Apr 2017 08:42:52
666 if that's true I'd of thought a replacement keeper would be highest on the list. While it's still a record fee for a keeper I would not be happy. We can't buy better than ddg. Amd whomever we buy is going to cost at least half of that fee.

3.) 19 Apr 2017 09:01:23
We have Romero and he is not bad to begin with. I am also not happy Ken as DDG is the best in the world ATM but with this kind of money we should let go as it is more important to build a strong defense line. Besides we all know DDG will go RM one day.
So instead of looking at the downside I feel the upside is we have a decent GK in Romero but gives us the money to buy key players we really need in various departments.

4.) 19 Apr 2017 10:13:52
we have money! pretty sure we wouldn't need to sell to buy.

5.) 19 Apr 2017 10:15:16
I hope DDG does not leave but the expectation is that he will. The money we will get due to his contract extension will be sizable but I would be looking to invest in the best available option out there and If that means paying the same amount then so be it.
Oblak is highly rated and I like the fact he has been at Athletico. Schmeichel would be the current PL keeper I would go for if Jose wanted PL experience. Throw in the Inter keeper and you can see that there are options.
Love DDG but everyone can be replaced.

6.) 19 Apr 2017 11:43:10
Yeah am sad if he goes. But he gave good service and if good money comes back we should let him have his freedom.
If we can build a solid defense we can do with an above average gk so I am not too worried. Obviously comforting to have a great GK but if our defense is great then there ain't much work for the GK😂😂.

7.) 19 Apr 2017 14:15:22
I very much doubt Jose was involved on agreeing a sale price.

8.) 19 Apr 2017 15:11:05
A great keeper can make up for average centre backs not the other way around.

9.) 19 Apr 2017 17:11:25
Yea great business by Jose, forget the tactics, he's sorting out the finances now.

10.) 20 Apr 2017 11:03:56
Sell the best keeper in the world and don't replace him, good business that.

Watched the game and was happy that we won. Good score of 3-1 but I am not totally convinced yet that our team is 100% reason being:
1. We were not in full control from the later part of H1 onwards.
2. We were not attacking enough and lack possession the whole of H2.
3. Kudos to Arsenal that they played well when we started to take our foot of the pedal
4. I accept Pogba's red card but feel it is not intentional as he was trying to flick the ball away but Bellerin just leave his trailing leg there asking to be stepped on. But that's football and I just hope referees will be consistent in future.
5. DDG saves us again as I feel we might have drew or even lose by a goal.
That said, wonderful feeling about the win and happy to have watched a great game of holding and going out on fast break. It's beginning to feel like days of old even though we were vulnerable during a stretch of the game but hey we came out fine.
Great results, wonderful win, good team and manager and sad red card.


1.) 03 Dec 2017 10:48:59
Red - You do realise that we were playing Arsenal who haven't lost at the Emirates since January and have won their last 12 home games in a row.

That game was totally unrecognisable from any previous away performance we've seen from a Jose team against our main rivals.

Our start was electric with a very high press, we attacked with pace and numbers. When you commit men forward and press high it's almost inevitable that you will give away some chances and have to be more reliant on the defence and goal keeper!

We bullied Arsenal and they couldn't cope with our power and pace. We looked like scoring every time we went forward. We scored 3 and had other great chances and opportunities.

It wasn't a perfect performance but we put Arsenal to the sword at times and the work rate, commitment and desire was fantastic.

We've missed that kind of intensity and work rate that we simply don't get from the likes of Miki, Mata and Ibra. We don't necessarily need that every game especially at home when teams often sit deep and concede possession but I think this needs to be the blueprint moving forward against the better teams.

I remember Lingard and Rashford running Chelsea ragged last year in arguably our best performance of the season.

It was brilliant edge of your seat stuff which we haven't seen for ages. Just as Arsenal fight back we counter brilliantly and it really was a throw back to what we'd often see from Fergi's best sides.

2.) 03 Dec 2017 11:32:50
Great post Danny couldn’t agree more. Great performance and at least half on here were expecting a loss.

3.) 03 Dec 2017 11:35:02
Yeah DL just that I wasn’t sitting down but watching from my bed as it was very late at night (1.30am) 🤣🤣.
But yes I love the intensity and excitement and hope we continue to play better and even more attacking and with sharpness. I can’t wait for the team to bring back that “fear” factor back not just at OT but everywhere. There were lapses but hey since when any team doesn’t have?
So yes it’s great and I trust Jose to slowly evolve the team and become the ManUtd team we all are wishing for.
Trust me even after the game I couldn’t sleep and kept thinking about the game and the highlights only to finally get to sleep this morning at 5am (Asia zone) with a smile on my face 🤣🤣.



02 Dec 2017 19:45:07
DDG best GK in the world. Also quoted by Jose.




01 Dec 2017 14:09:35
Hi Eds will you be posting the games previews pls? Can't wait to read. Am sure they will be great. Many thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - yes mate, tomorrow morning my time Saturday's will go up and then the same time Sunday morning for Sunday's previews.}

1.) 01 Dec 2017 23:40:59
Thanks vm dear sir.



19 Nov 2017 12:14:11
Whilst I am happy with our victory last night I am more encouraged with the likes of Wilson showing potential in our younger team.
It leaves me very positive about our younger player and their ascension to the senior team. I really give salute to Butt and the team and hope Jose will continue the tradition of "introducing" these youngsters into the senior team. There will be plenty of opportunities since we are competing in all fronts and will need a large team. Hopefully the seniors concentrate on the PL and CL and a mix of both seniors and juniors in the other 2 competitions. It's getting me excited about the future of our club and hopefully we will end the season on a very high note.
That said we are still WIP and hopefully next season will really make us a powerhouse again. Haven't been like that for a long time. So at this moment results matter to me more than style. Once we are really fully stocked I will definitely want us to become a stylish powerhouse. That'll be very very fun 😂😂.




27 Oct 2017 16:36:55
I know Spurs are without Kane tomorrow but do not underestimate Korean Son. He can shoot with 2 feet and he is fast.
So whilst it may come out as better for us on player miss, I fear if we let our guards down we will be severely punished. By no means is Spurs a one man team.
Interesting game tomorrow.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 17:27:03
He’s a class player 666. Very underrated. I remember a few years ago Beckenbauer was speaking highly of him when he was at Leverkusen. I feel we have to go for it tomorrow and lay done a marker. No excuses and with Kane not playing I feel 3 points is a must. Looking forward to it as spurs are a class side.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 18:03:52
Yeah Park I hope we nullify Son. He can be quite a handful. I really hope we win the game, get the 3 points and would be great if we can win by at least a 2 goal margin. However even if we win by one I’d be very happy thought dangerous.
More importantly I hope we can also play a very attacking game to show the supporters that we only play defensively against certain teams.
Can’t wait for the game tomorrow.

Agree with Shane and Mort. We went out of the way to bid and yet got declined but from AM but the player himself. Time and ride waits for no man. Am sure better options around and not like we don’t have the money to pay.
On another note we could sign Ashley Young’s cousin for the wings - Ashley Younger 🤣🤣🤣.

Thanks DB.
It’s no more a given going to these “lower PL half” teams anymore. We learnt our lessons last few seasons. Complacency is an invitation to getting caught. They are fighting for a lifeline and a cornered rat bites back too.
Just glad it’s not us and it’s others. Better since it’s Conte 🤣🤣.
