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.}

Thanks omnipresent one 🙏.

2.) 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?



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.}

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.

All the Eds thanks for the best site ever. Have a fantastic summer.
Will still be checking on the site for interesting information. God bless everyone and see you all next season.


{Ed004's Note - Thank you Red}



10 May 2019 04:15:29
Mixed feelings.
Sad and disappointed with our state of club and where we are. However happy that it's an All-English CL and Europa Finals. It's doing great things for PL football. Hopefully a start to more good times to come.
Also I hope our Board members feel disgusted with their handling of the club and how bad we have become. Big and rich club is one thing. But if it doesn't come with great football and titles we will sooner or later lose our perch. We are already being overtaken as a biggest club. That could be the start of worse to come if we do not take a hard look at ourselves.
The Board needs to understand that WE ARE A FOOTBALL CLUB. Making money come with good football and titles. I'd rather be a 4th or 5th largest club but win titles than the biggest club in the world but yet can string a few titles.
My worst fear is that if we do not do the right thing we will become a mid table club soon. I'll die if we become a lower half table club if we are not careful.
Right now we still have the means in financial strength so we had better do a bloody proper job to strategize the next 2 years. I'd like to see Man Utd win at least another PL or CL title before I gone from this earth 🙄.
Till then I'll still be supporting the club.


1.) 10 May 2019 08:01:40
I was thinking last night does the fact that we have a full English Europa and Champions League finals, along with City and Liverpool breaking records in the league just highlight how hard and how competitive the EPL has got this season?

Its easy to judge our performances based on what we have seen before. But the EPL is far more competitive than it ever was during Sir Alex's time in charge of the club.

Back then United had one serious challenger for the league, Arsenal, Chelsea and City at different points. But now there are genuinely 5-6 teams competing for the league.

Then you look at the quality of teams such as Wolves, Everton and Leicester all of them boost 40, 50 or even 70m players in their side.

Maybe we need to consider the quality of the opposition now when comparing our form to what it was back when.

{Ed001's Note - no Shaps there is just two teams genuinely competing for the league.}

2.) 10 May 2019 08:52:36
Chelsea raised the bar many years ago when Jose first arrived. City have now raised it further and Liverpool have risen to the challenge. Right now I think they are the best 2 teams in Europe. As for Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, and day I say us, on their day able to put in a great performance against anybody but not able to do it consistently.

I think our challenge is to ship out the disruptive and negative influences, recruit we, get fit, work hard, adopt a clear style and focus on closing the gap. We could fail miserably or we could finish 3rd.

3.) 10 May 2019 09:00:04
True Shapps.
That’s why I’m am saying if we are not careful we will be taken over as the other teams are showing their improvements. Their players show passion and wanting to make something of their stay in the club. For us, we do not have that many who wants to do that other than wanting more money and yet not doing much.
City and Pool are doing well but if you notice they didn’t do it overnight. It took them at least 3 years to make such a big gap with the rest. So I’m for us to build the team (with a proper plan and stick to it) to challenge in 3 years but a bonus if in 2 years. Get the right strategy and stick with and support the manager.

4.) 10 May 2019 09:04:03
Good point AJH.
We need to buy strategically to complement the young team we want to build. Use the Europa to get the younger team more experience. Nothing really to lose but everything to win.
Key purchase of 2-3 senior players would help us go a long way I feel.

5.) 10 May 2019 09:06:34
Ed001, in the end there was. However, if you look at the point tally's of the teams 3rd-5th they are at a level that would have made them serious challengers, even winners in some past years of the EPL.

Which is kind of my point, I did point out that Liverpool and City have had record breaking a record breaking season. Which has risen the bar even further.

{Ed001's Note - but this is not a previous year. Those teams were nowhere near challenging at any point, no matter how much the media tried to include Spurs in it. There were just two teams challenging.}

6.) 10 May 2019 09:34:36
Good post AJH.

7.) 10 May 2019 09:55:33
We need a marquee signing to put the faith back into the heart of the fans everywhere. Viva Ronaldo (age is just a number) 🤣🤣.



08 May 2019 02:04:28
If anything here there's a good lesson for the Board, management and players in Man Utd. I am envious of how Liverpool has brought themselves to this current position but they have done well and well done to them.
It took them a few years to build/ rebuild their team. Right board decisions, conviction and support for the manager. This formula would work well in most organizations. Best lesson from our most intense competition.


1.) 08 May 2019 05:52:43
I totally despise Liverpool but you have to agree every Utd fan at the moment wished our club was where they are at. I got slated a few weeks back when I said Barcelona were bang average bar Messi. Well looks like I was right there are less than bang average but fair play to the scousers. Just praying either Ajax or Spurs turn them over but can’t see it.

2.) 08 May 2019 06:40:09
BR credits where due even if we sometimes don’t like it. That’s being professional as a supporter and fan. As I always said it’s only football and there are more important in life.
For me I think Liverpool did themselves proud and persevered. Klopp (much as I don’t like him) did a good job but the players need to be commended as a team playing together. I’m impressed with their playing with heart and soul. We need to get back to that psychology. Well probably in 2 years time I feel.
We need to stick with the manager and support him in whichever way we can. Be it Ole or anyone. Else no point appointing him as the manager right?

3.) 08 May 2019 07:51:56
Liverpool were sensational last night. Blind loyalties aside, that was an incredible performance and win. My biggest fear is not just this season - the way both them and City are both so consistently miles ahead of the rest of us is worrying for our club for many years and those in charge of making key decisions at Utd (I genuinely don’t know who they are) ought to hang their heads in shame.

The rebuild starts now, but I fear we will be seeking another new manager in 12-18 months maximum.

4.) 08 May 2019 09:14:32
Eric we will have to wait and see.
If there is progress and the team is shaping up nicely then I don’t see why we can’t continue with Ole.
I was one of first few who feels that we should’ve waited till end of season as initial contract. But since Ole was appointed then I will just support the club.
So till then we have to see what comes up. Hopefully great support from the Board.

5.) 08 May 2019 12:06:54
Look at the effort that was put in last night, it would be nice to see some of that plus some of the targeted squat additions.

6.) 08 May 2019 12:46:04
I totally agree EiG.
I feel (stand corrected) that we can get back to glory if we put a good strategy in place, stick to it, back the manager and follow through.
On another note, sorry but EW should stay clear of football inputs and stick with the financials which he is very very strong.



04 May 2019 14:38:00
Ed how does the new CL ruling affect Man Utd's getting in?
Does that mean that if Arsenal or Chelsea wins Europa Man Utd still gets to qualify? Or there is totally no chance now?
Thanks for information 🙏.


{Ed001's Note - top 4 gets in. Only way anyone from outside gets in is if they qualify by winning the CL or EL. There would not be a place dropping down to 5th in that case.}

1.) 04 May 2019 15:58:01
And spurs are doing a spursy.

2.) 04 May 2019 16:14:52
Thanks Ed. So looks like CL chances for Man Utd is very slim the way I see it. Not being negative but a little realistic.
Looking toward summer purchasing and how much success we will have. Hopefully we will set ourselves up for next season.
Have a good weekend ahead.

{Ed001's Note - you always have the hope that the money can paper over the cracks mate. Take care.}



23 Apr 2019 01:29:08
Interesting situation.
Now that Chelsea drew, a win against City could potentially put us back in top 4 (pending Arsenal game) .
Liverpool fans will be hoping we beat City. City will go all out to beat us. Now we will see why are our players - boys or man.
Do we want Liverpool or City to be PL champion? It's all in our hands. What a predicament.


{Ed0333's Note - you should play to win every match even if it means helping you’re bitterest rivals win the title 666 🤣

1.) 23 Apr 2019 04:48:07
I think I would want us to try and win but I also remember when faced with a similar situation a few years ago slippy G slipped made a back pass to Drogba to ensure their win. Returning that favor would be nice.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 07:08:51
As a pool fan, the thought of united “having a say” is all completely irrelevant. City will embarrass united and that’s the bottom line. We are more hopeful of their game against Burnley and Leicester. The only favour you could do Liverpool fans is finishing out of the top 4 and continue the spiral down 😊.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 07:09:46
Shouldn't be a question that even enters our heads. We play to win, end of discussion. Liverpool and City are fighting for the title because they deserve to be. We are 20 odd points behind because we deserve to be. The league us in their hands, not ours so what will be will be.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 07:30:04
After what we witnessed at weekend I don’t know why anyone is bothered about Liverpool or City. We have our own mess to sort out and dreaming that we have any say in the title race is just desperation to stay relevant. We should be trying to win every game for ourselves, what will be will be.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 07:52:19
benny we have won more trophies in last 3 years than you have in the last decade.

6.) 23 Apr 2019 08:01:26
Of course we play to win Betty, doesn't mean the blow of losing won't be softened by the fact it scuppers Liverpool's title bid. :)

7.) 23 Apr 2019 08:36:39
Other than being relegated I can not think of anything worse than Liverpool winning the title so i will happily take a loss on Wednesday. Anything under 1st means we lost just because the money men reward you for being rubbish ie finishing below the top spot and getting Europe doesn't mean it should be good enough.

8.) 23 Apr 2019 09:34:44
Common sense Moyes, you clearly don't remember us beating king Kenny's Blackburn on the last day of the season which gifted you the league but you messed it up and couldn't beat West ham, and we had zero on the line in that game as well, you'd rather not win and give a massive boost to your champions League position because you actually think Stevie deliberately gave a back pass to drogba?

By the way do you not remember him doing the exact same thing against France in the world cup, he probably did that because he knows all man United supporters are England fans and he wanted to throw that game as well to piss yous off, he really was that obsessed with United don't ye know. 🙈.

9.) 23 Apr 2019 09:55:05
So you gifted us one premier league title and we didn't take it yet we are still 13-0 up. I'd take 13-1 if it means we get top 4, not like the other team that can win it isn't a big rival also.

10.) 23 Apr 2019 10:28:03
What on earth has this got to do with the past / trophies 😂 this isn’t even about rivalries, this is about wanting your team, whether it United or Havant and Waterloovile, beaten. Fans sit their and claim pogba et all are mercenaries that don’t care about the club, yet fickle fans want their team to actually lose. Pot calling the kettle black.
The decent united fans want to win every game, and thank god there are some on here, we have plastics on our page too, so I feel your pain boys.
As I said, it’s all irrelevant, the team could give 150% but will still lose. If you boys want to say “ stops you winning the title “ as if it’s some achievement, we will see what an achievement it is in the summer when no big players will come to Cardiff level manager and a team not playing with the big boys. Not to mention missing out on huge revenue whilst trying to pay of a billion squid of debt. He who laughs last laughs longest.

11.) 23 Apr 2019 10:45:40
Waro, I think your right, Gerrard was just pants.

12.) 23 Apr 2019 12:13:20
Truth be told I don’t think your capable of beating city so the helping us out dilemma is irrelevant. That’s just how I see it and expect it to unfold. Your players seem to be on holiday already. I understand your players not caring who wins the league, but they seem to not care for their own club.

13.) 23 Apr 2019 12:34:20
GDS2 is right, it is all irrelevant, how foolish of us to forget that football began in 1992.

14.) 23 Apr 2019 13:22:59
This hoping we lose thing. I really can't understand it. I grew up with Liverpool winning everything, so obviously I hope they don't win it. But not at the expense of us losing a game. Any game.

15.) 23 Apr 2019 14:03:19
Doesn't matter City will need to play poorly to lose, it's up to them.

If both teams play to the best they will win end of.

I don't care for either club but from a long term position for Utd it is better for us that the sovereign wealth fund of Abu Dhabi win the league.

If Liverpool win it will put them back at the top table. If city win it will only serve to increase the volume of complaints about them buying the league and financial doping.

16.) 23 Apr 2019 15:15:15
Sorry Woolback, 20-19 then.

I would seriously like to see a younger and explosive team for Bournemouth game. Give them a chance and see if they can handle the pressure. Forget the luxury of senior players except for key ones.
I’d rather the younger ones play attacking and pace than the slow overly careful game by some of the senior players. What’s to lose? At the worse we are still 2 point ahead of the scousers! The PL title is already lost so as long as we are in top 4 what the hell?
We need to identify which are the young players who can come into first team and what better opportunity to see how they perform? Maybe the senior players can learn a little from them?

So I’m for us to build the team (with a proper plan and stick to it) to challenge in 3 years but a bonus if in 2 years. Get the right strategy and stick with and support the manager.

Pleeease no way.
It’s raining but the bright part is 4 English clubs in 2 major competition. I’m happy even though I’m Asian. Always supported English teams against others. Unfortunately I can’t say much about England team as much as Man Utd team (this season) .
I pray our team will improve next season 🙄🙄.

Nice read on a damp day 🤣👍.


{Ed001's Note - damp? Is that because you have tears of joy from watching Arsenal and Chelsea last night?}

I totally agree EiG.
I feel (stand corrected) that we can get back to glory if we put a good strategy in place, stick to it, back the manager and follow through.
On another note, sorry but EW should stay clear of football inputs and stick with the financials which he is very very strong.
