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.

Great comeback yesterday's game.
Whilst we can all see that Sanchez worked his butt off and scored and my pick of MOTM, I feel Pogba deserves mention as he made that great and fantastic assist for Sanchez's goal. In fact I think Pogba really played well and if he is able not to be distracted he can become one of the legend in time to come. He will probably outlive Jose in ManUtd.
Back to Sanchez. His efforts need to be mentioned especially when he ran back to cover the defense. That said the defense needs to be seriously looked at. We can be seriously punished against more aggressive and pacey teams. No names to mention but I'm sure we all have a few in mind.
We have a potent attack and the selection depends sometimes on who we play against. Rash injects pace but lack in shooting and decisive actions. This attack team can work well together and Jose needs to realize that. I believe Jose will involve less defensive responsibilities from attack team once the defense is fully built and trusted.
We are somewhat ok with midfield but may need one or a couple more building the team around Pogba. Pogba is not slow but only look so as the way I saw that when he ran his strides is big and outrun most. BUT you would've notice that he is not the best defensive midfielder.
All in all I think we are still WIP and needs 3 to 4 signings max and we should be better than good.
Right now just happy we are in the final and a chance of silverware. Hopefully we win and close the season to what I would consider above average but not great. Spoilt as we are to the glory and dominant days but trying to be positive at least we are moving up.
Sorry long post.


1.) 22 Apr 2018 07:33:17
I thought the defense played well yesterday done what was asked of them .
Spurs done well in midfield but the backline was solid yesterday, really don't know what people's problem is some times.

2.) 22 Apr 2018 07:58:42
Jred, Son had the beating of Valencia literally every time. Spurs goal was down to Young getting caught up far up the pitch, and that was without spurs actually playing with a right winger. We need 2 full backs, possibly 3. Fabinho would be awesome for both midfield and right back, and a new left back, hopefully an experienced one like Rose, but would also like Sessegnon.

3.) 22 Apr 2018 07:59:31
Jred no problem here but I felt we could’ve been punished a couple of time. Son was so quick and Ericksen was solid. Lucky we were saved by upright.
There is no doubt we played well (how could we not if we won? ) . But I’m saying we had luck with us but we need to tweak a bit to be solid next season.
Really don’t understand why people so sensitive some times.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 08:06:28
Son played well for the first 15 minutes and that was it really .
Not sure how you can blame young for the first goal? Young attacks some one else steps in its then up to them to deal with it .
Sessengon hasn't played lb for months now and his future is further up the pitch

Good example how some players carry the can for everything tho .

5.) 22 Apr 2018 08:26:12
Oh I wasn’t blaming anyone mate.
All I am saying is we can do better. Mind you Spurs are a good team. Just a little short of finishing touch.
As I said we played well and dug in. No panic and I like it. Seeing Pogba putting in effort and Sanchez scoring has me all very happy.
As I said we need to tweak a little more to come up with a solid team to challenge the title next season. This season is done and hopefully we can cap it off with the FA Cup. I can’t ask for more.
We have work to do for next season and Jose will be measured if the board supports him with the signings. We are in track really.

6.) 22 Apr 2018 08:28:52
For whichever position, looks like Sessegnon is going to be great. The CBs were great, best I've seen this season. The full backs were ineffective esp in attack. I'd be happy if we only added full backs and one midfielder.

7.) 22 Apr 2018 08:46:19
I think we played well for the team we have. Jose made reasonable good selection and the team delivered. No one is to blame for the goal imho.
But I agree with a couple or few more key signings would really make our team all round solid.
Hopefully with a stronger defense Jose will then get the team to play attacking football and also challenge the title next season. I am very hopeful.

8.) 22 Apr 2018 09:04:19
666 I agree. We seem to be well on our way to recovery from the post Fergie slump. The football may not always be easy to the eye but the progress is undeniable.

9.) 22 Apr 2018 09:49:59
I thought we were all over the place defensively. Spurs created a lot of chances in the first 25mins and the game could've been out of sight. Ddg was helpless on a couple of occassions but luckily the ball just missed on one occassion and hit the post on another. Every time Eriksson got the ball, i was sh. tting myself. Son had the beating of Valencia.
For a team that's supposed to be organized defensively, we look completely shambolic. It all stems from the attackers (apart from Sanchez) and midfielders giving too much time to the opposition, so our defense is always under pressure.

10.) 22 Apr 2018 10:01:26
AAA agreed and I’m not defending the team blindly but we were very lucky albeit we did not do that badly in 2H. There were a couple of ref decisions but lucky Jose behaved himself unlike Klopp else he would’ve been heavily penalized. I magazine how far he has to walk up the stairs to be in the stand 🤣.
But yes we still need a few signings to bolster the team.

11.) 22 Apr 2018 10:32:52
The full back play was Bad, anyway not their fault their wingers.
Young is solid enough at times but can't be our fullback next season.
They would be ok as back up.

12.) 22 Apr 2018 10:33:02
Smalling and Jones were excellent, Valencia was a bit shaky at times and young went walkabout for their goal. Smalling really was super.

13.) 22 Apr 2018 10:35:11
Pogba was caught napping for Tottenham's goal in all honesty but it is pretty obvious we need two top quality full backs. That plus a quality midfielder, this team will look and perform very differently.
Sessegnon is a good player but he's no full back, he's similar to how Bale started. He has a real knack for popping up in the right place at the right time though.



15 Apr 2018 18:10:31
Bad loss for us today but congrats to Citeh winning the PL. Hope to be challenging them next season.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 18:44:33
Yeah, Congratulations to City, over the season they have played some football that is simply beyond the collection of bottlers Utd employs. We have always derided other teams and have all at one time been guilty of putting another teams decent performance against us as being their "Cup final" well I'll tell you something, last weeks game against City was our players Cup final. They came into todays match with the type of arrogance they do not merit, this team is writing cheques it cannot cash.



15 Apr 2018 04:13:13
Just saw the replay of Spur-Citeh game.
How come Baldy not making noise about the penalty wrong given? It was outside the box! He is just a pure whiner and sore loser. He should be sent to the stand permanently. Also still wearing that yellow political thing and FA not taking action? He should wear yellow underwear so he still have his conviction and not get into trouble 🤣🤣.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 06:41:44
I think that’s a bit harsh. He is a top bloke and a fantastic Manager. As for the ribbon, I applaud his stance, he knows he will get into trouble but he is prepared to take the punishment to continue to highlight something he passionately believes in.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 07:14:55
Pup guardiola is indeed a great manager, and he loves that region of spain the EU refuses to acknowledge have a case for independence, and as for being a top bloke, not so sure, if your someone he needs in his team then yeah, he's your dad, brother and bezzy mate all rolled into one, but if he deems you surplus to requirements, your toast-yes, that's part of the business he operates in, but for example, i seem to remember his assistant manager at Barcelona taking over when pup left and went to america on his year out, the guy got throat cancer and from what was written and reported at the time good old pup didn't seem to care enough to bother to visit him in hospital, now if i got that wrong then i apologise, or maybe there were background issues that were kept private, hence no visits, but that's what i recall at the time, some players also commenting on how pup was noticable by his absence, maybe he's changed and is an all round good egg now, no doubt he's one of the best managers around, but how good would he be in charge of a team with a limited budget, he's never had that worry, jose, klopp and lvg have been at clubs where limited funds have been an issue and showed their class, i find it interesting how good old pup doesn't seem to want to test himself like this.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 07:46:05
AJH I did not say he is a lousy manager. I feel he is an okay manager who inherited a good team and had strong financial support. Financial support much like Hose but better team than what Jose inherited.
We have all always say to detach politics from sports but here you seem to imply it is ok to wear that ribbon when he is appearing as the club manager? That’s not consistent. I couldn’t care less what f he wear whilst not on official duties or if he wears during his off days. Hell he can even wear whilst showering or to sleep. But after the FA punished him he still wear, is he trying to challenge the authorities or is he just having nothing between his ears? If he passionately believes in that then he should go back to his country and start a movement with his monies. At least Mata is donating some of his salary fo what he believes in!
If he is a great manager or if Jose or Klopp thinks they are great, very simple: take the challenge or a mid table club and let’s see where they can bring them with the limited funds.
Having said I agree with Co82 above.
On another note I’ve always felt Moyes did a good job all those Everton years. His biggest mistake was to try to wear a shoe he can’t fit (not knowing his own capabilities) . He would have been one the best manager inEverton’s history but he chose the wrong move and got punished big time. Anyway done is done. Wish him the best.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 10:43:25
You didn’t say he was lousy, you called him baldy, a sore loser, and whiny. Show me a good loser in the Premier League.

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?

Always imagining Jred.
Bur ball is round so also depends on who we playing. I am quite sure most logical supporters would want win before beautiful football. That said, I’d not want to become a scousers supporter having not won anything for so long than be a ManUtd supporter having won silverware last season. So what if it is Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck trophy? I’d rather that than an empty season shelf.
But yes if we win and also beautiful, like I said it would be the ultimate.

Well said LSMA.
At the end Of the day, people remember winners and not too much of those who play well and beautiful. Hence yeah to a certain extent I’d rather we win and be boring than be like scousers playing beautiful and not win anything for years. Of course if we can play beautiful and yet win that’ll be ultimate. 😉.

Ed001 as usual great read especially when you took your time to analyze the replay.
I particularly paid attention to what you mentioned about the 2 managers and just wondered the potential problem had we appointed Poch. Of course he can still improve but as of now I do agree with what you said and how ManUtd can suffer if he takes over now.
Just to quote from Wenger about Viera, so on Poch - he is good but not ready yet.


{Ed001's Note - I just think he needs to learn to distance himself and recruit better. They are not buying winners they are buying athletes.}

Agree Ken. I think it’s only the media (again) trying to disrupt us (as usual) . The closer we are to success the more they try to disrupt and discredit us.
I would like to think that the team is coming together stride to stride. Just goes to show there so much anti ManUtd jealous of our history and fear of us becoming even more successful.

Agree and great post Park though I differ in MOTM since I feel Sanchez work rate is the best.
As to the media, you have this feeling that when we play well most of them still are negative. Nothing new to me. My comfort is that they recognized we are coming back and they hope we do not dominate like before.
Even the commentators were rooting for Spurs when I was watching the game. I just turned the volume to almost inaudible 🤣. I’d love to see what nonsense they will still rat about when we win something 🤣🤣.
