The actual French federation for football has released a statement saying they've allowed Martial to go to Manchester, I didn't believe all this when it broke last night but that's as reliable as it comes in terms of a source.


1.) 31 Aug 2015 17:17:35
The odd thing with this whole deal is he played the whole 90 minutes last night with them being down 3-0 even though the story broke before their kickoff against PSG. I would be very surprised if the deal is over 20 million and still puzzled by the whole thing.



30 Aug 2015 19:09:26
Apparently Charlie Austin is all but a done deal, not heard anything about this prior to about half an hour ago. Medical tomorrow, £15m + add ons, I'd be happy with that.


1.) 30 Aug 2015 19:42:25
I'm not sure I would be. Biggest club in the world and we are fishin around for championship strikers?

2.) 30 Aug 2015 20:22:25
fishing around championship strikers haha . wayne rooney at the moment is far worse then a championship striker. i'd be happy with austin can hold a ball and can finish that is for sure

3.) 30 Aug 2015 20:24:09
i don't know what you guys think. i do believe we have a good squad to challenge for the league but i don't believe we can under louis van gaal.

4.) 30 Aug 2015 20:26:42
Ed "Ibrahimovich?"
LVG "nah"
Ed "Cavani?"
LVG "no thanks"
Ed "Bale?"
LVG "nope"
Ed "Benzema??"
LVG "no way"
Ed "The boy Neymar?"
LVG "no!!!"
Ed "Who then?! Come on Louis, we're one of the biggest football teams in the world with near unlimited financial resources!"
LVG "Get me Charlie Austin"
Ed ". "

I think you got the names of the speakers mixed up.



21 Aug 2015 22:10:59
So that awful newspaper the s*n say we're in secret talks with Neymar, just another to add to the "players who don't want to play for us".

Honestly believe this is some sort of smear campaign against our relatively good business we've done so far by the media.


1.) 21 Aug 2015 22:28:52
The also said Chelski agreed pogba fee. Must be struggling to sell a few papers lucky .

2.) 21 Aug 2015 22:29:53
I too think this. This year we've been linked with so many players it's unreal. Not that i don't believe we wouldn't want them, but some like Muller or Neymar are so tough to prise away is it even worth the conversation?

3.) 21 Aug 2015 23:11:48
Still nice to dream , that we may get that stellar signing we are hoping for . But I think the neymar story is way of the mark. One or two more players to make us more competitive , flying tricky winger and decent striker I'd be happy.
Roll on sept 1st

4.) 22 Aug 2015 00:16:10
Nice piece on another website about how Custis took a quote from LVG about Neymar and Ashley Young, added Woodwards trip to Barcelona this week into the mix and wrote a story to sell newspapers. Of course it's total BS but it does show which journalists are currently in the know at United and how they share the stories amongst each other in case they fall out of favour with the United Press Office.

5.) 22 Aug 2015 19:12:36
Ed Woodward goes to Barcelona and fails to sign Pedro. Press: He must be after Neymar!

6.) 22 Aug 2015 23:55:55
Lol the sun are a Rag, They report some amount of Garbage and claim to be in the know when one of the deals they said was going to happen actually happens. They are Full of Crap.



12 Aug 2015 13:47:39
Lot of jouno's based in Valencia are breaking the news that Otamendi is in the final stages of a deal with a premier league club, rumoured to be us. If it's City then I think we're 100% conceding the league there. A partnership of Smalling and Ota with Darmian and Shaw at full backs is getting back to the days of Neville, Vida, Rio and Pat.


1.) 12 Aug 2015 14:13:34
1 good game and smalling compared to Rio???
I m not saying he is bad but only thing against him is his injury records. If he can stay fit for full season than we have a very good defender there.
But please there is a difference between good and great.

2.) 12 Aug 2015 14:23:30
Hope you are right as both Otamendi and Pedro will improve us a lot (assuming LVG picks them in their best position, their wives don't hate Manchester and they don't get robbed).

However, they won't win us the title. They might push us up to 3rd (ahead of Arsenal) but City and Chelsea still have something we don't. genuine world class 25-30 goals a season strikers.

They have Aguero and Costa who can snaffle a half chance and nick an undeserved 1-0 or 2-1 win for their clubs. we simply don't. We will need to create several chances per game for Rooney to score even one whereas City and Chelsea could win with one shot on target all game (that's how good their strikers are).

I will be madly happy if we get Otamendi and Pedro but we are not getting that title back until we get Lewandowski!

3.) 12 Aug 2015 14:29:54
1 good game? I guess you're selectively deciding to factor in the second half of last season following his sending off at City. Is it so hard to support our own players?

4.) 12 Aug 2015 15:06:33
i like smalling and think he could be quality if he stays fit, but a rio he is not !i know the term world class gets banded about a lot these days but rio was genuinely 1 of the best cb to grace the game of football

5.) 12 Aug 2015 15:09:15
We really need a centre half and Otamendi looks the best choice of who is available - If we can maintain the same back four in Darmian - Smalling - Otamendi - Shaw we should have a strong, solid unit along with the extra protection our midfield will now serve.

As for going forward Pedro and a number 9 will probably give us a very good window - all our problem areas will have been addressed

6.) 12 Aug 2015 16:30:08
Well said manfromchester can't believe how blinkered some of our own supporters are even with eds input whether it's personal or what they've heard from UK based scouts. 1 good game 😂

7.) 12 Aug 2015 19:23:22
Hey leave Mike smalling alone!



05 Aug 2015 18:55:40
The commentator for the Milan vs Spurs game has just said Kane isn't playing due to a £40m bid from us, doubt that but does anyone know anything?


1.) 05 Aug 2015 19:06:36
Really said that?
Just rested prior to Saturday's game maybe?

2.) 05 Aug 2015 19:08:07
I just see that too. Interestingly he also said he was initially in the squad to play and that he's not there now but was there yesterday.

3.) 05 Aug 2015 19:18:18
Informative comments on the situation at Real Madrid concerning bale,James Rodriguez and Benzema from Ed001 James the untouchable one chance bale could go??

4.) 05 Aug 2015 19:27:50
If we are indeed in for Pedro , and Van Gaal likes 4 3 3 system , were would Kane fit in , can't see Rooney being dropped , I know we all prefer 442 which would allow 2 strikers and a solid midfield , but you know Mr Van Gaal will do what suits him best.
But can't see Kane comming myself , we know how hard it is to barter with Tottenham and Mr Levy.

5.) 05 Aug 2015 19:32:32
Kane coukd be injured but I have heard the commentary myself and he clearly suggests we have made a huge bid and that being the reason Kane isn't even there. He could also have been sent home early to rest. Personally I think we need a striker but Kane is a risk given he has only done it for one season. At £40m I would rather have Lewandowski but let's see what develops

6.) 05 Aug 2015 19:33:04
Kane is rested !!!

7.) 05 Aug 2015 19:37:35
If Kane comes in I see a very interchangeable front three of Rooney Kane and depay. Much more to Kane's game than central striker

8.) 05 Aug 2015 19:39:34
kane played 70 minutes yesterday so could be rested

9.) 05 Aug 2015 19:56:56
Kane, Rooney, Depay & Pedro (Mata and Young miss out), that is how he has played pre-season.

10.) 05 Aug 2015 20:19:40
I'm an admirer of Kane, I hope he comes but just can't see it happening this summer. Hopes are for next. And he too likes to press defenders which suits my preferred style of play.

11.) 05 Aug 2015 20:21:12
Just seen this also on the internet. Be interested to see if this has legs as I think he has potential, at the right price. Hopefully, as mentioned above, he won't have just been a one season wonder. Let's hope for another Rooney as opposed to a Matt Jansen or Francis Jeffers.

12.) 05 Aug 2015 20:46:05
Well yes he certainly did say Utd had made a bid, how long before SSN run it.

13.) 05 Aug 2015 23:05:34

14.) 06 Aug 2015 10:24:31
Was the video fake?

Kane was among the subs bench when the teams were announced and was withdrew soon after - strange one to be fair.

Pretty stupid from Spurs playing two games back to back a couple of days before the Premier League season starts. Munich to London to Manchester in a couple of days? I'd be fuming if that was us

15.) 06 Aug 2015 12:49:21
Kane would be another andy caroll

So if reports are to be believed, Gary Cahill wants out of Chelsea in order to get back into the England squad. Would anyone take a punt on him? I definitely would.


1.) 27 Jan 2016 16:16:29
I most certainly would anon a very good player imo.

2.) 27 Jan 2016 17:16:18
Would make a good squad player until we get different targets.

3.) 27 Jan 2016 17:19:46
I thought we should have when he left Bolton.

4.) 27 Jan 2016 20:32:50
Definitely mort, was a big mistake that. Unfortunately we banked on Jones instead.

5.) 27 Jan 2016 22:26:13
Honestly don't rate him that much. He's a decent player and better than what we have but we could do a lot better. Then again, bringing him in would be better than no one.

6.) 28 Jan 2016 13:23:53
Best English centrehalf at Chelsea.



19 Jan 2016 17:09:06
Any news on how Blackett is developing at Celtic? Not really heard anything of him, bond what's your opinions? Think you've gave me a little update a few months back.


{Ed007's Note - The story was that he was on his way back to Utd with some places up here wrongly reporting he had already left Celtic. He's not getting any game time except in the development squad so I can't understand why he's still here considering we signed another CB at the weekend as well. It's an odd one.}

1.) 19 Jan 2016 18:47:56
Ed, why hasn't he broke into the first team, mate? Has he been injured? I thought he had a decent season for us last year in the games he played.

{Ed007's Note - He picked up a slight knock a while back and hasn't been seen since even though he's fit as far as I know.}

2.) 19 Jan 2016 18:48:38
General consensus that he's not good enough? Will probably end up leaving in the summer for a team like Cardiff or Wednesday.

{Ed007's Note - I wasn't impressed by him, especially after all you guys were saying he was a decent player.}



02 Sep 2015 18:40:18
So no Valdes in the UCL squad, can't see him ever featuring again, plus this means we'll be playing DDG too I think, few media outlets in Spain also reporting that he's looking to renew his contract with us.

Not that that means anything, stinks of what happened with Ronaldo when he signed and went a year later just to get our fee.


1.) 02 Sep 2015 20:37:26
If we get a good fee and more time to scout a successor i'm not complaining.

{Ed004's Note - If this is true it has worked out brilliantly for manutd. I wouldn't mind if he signed an extension with a fair release clause for Madrid}

2.) 02 Sep 2015 20:50:00
Yeah this wasn't a complaint, just saying I can't see him staying for the long haul. I'd be delighted if he signed and we got a bigger fee, means he'll be regarded in a higher manor by our fans as I've been quite pissed off with the treatment he's received tbf.

3.) 02 Sep 2015 21:00:12
If he doesn't Sign then he won't ever play again.
I agree with Ed , needs a release clause (30mil)

Can't wait to have Dave back

4.) 02 Sep 2015 21:08:10
Sod Madrid Ed, I think they have behaved dreadfully and got what they deserved. I think there is plenty of water to flow under the bridge on this one. My. Idea is they deliberately pulled it and may well not come back for him

{Ed004's Note - Hopefully they don't want him next summer then. I think the player wants to return to Spain though}



01 Sep 2015 12:50:04
Is anyone else slightly concerned we have only 1 recognised left back?


1.) 01 Sep 2015 13:14:10
What! Blind can cover lb is push comes to shove.

2.) 01 Sep 2015 13:18:33
We have 3, two of them are just played as centre backs. It is the least of our worries lol

3.) 01 Sep 2015 13:20:03
Not really, Blind played excellently their last season, Rojo can cover as can Darmian.
I'm more worried if Darmian gets injured then we are left with Valencia or McNair at RB.

4.) 01 Sep 2015 13:24:32
Blind can play there also and knowing LVG Young will also be classed as a LB I'm sure!!

5.) 01 Sep 2015 13:27:08
Blind does a pretty good job as a backup and darmian can also play a lb

6.) 01 Sep 2015 13:28:38
I'm concerned we only have 18 senior players to compete in 4 competitions!

7.) 01 Sep 2015 13:30:29
Blind can cover as can rojo

8.) 01 Sep 2015 13:32:18
Apart from the 2 that played left back in WC semi finals and a final and a cops america final. We only have 1 right back and a converted winger

9.) 01 Sep 2015 13:33:11
I'm not to be honest, we have Blind and Rojo (I think) plus Young if it's dire straights. Wouldn't be surprised if Darmian could even switch over.

I think we have 99 more problems and LB ain't one.

10.) 01 Sep 2015 13:36:12
We only have one recognised RB? At least at left back we have Blind, Rojo and Young who can play there.

11.) 01 Sep 2015 13:44:37
Jones & Smalling, not forgetting Young. We are ok out there as well. Not great, but ok.

12.) 01 Sep 2015 13:59:43
Doing well today beast

13.) 01 Sep 2015 14:34:35
Luke Chadwick,

We have more than 18 senior players mate, stop believing everything you read, can just do a quick count to see the squad will have more than that.

14.) 01 Sep 2015 15:49:57
19 outfield players and 4 goalkeepers.



01 Sep 2015 11:44:06
Good luck today ed's can't imagine the traffic on the page at times like these, we all appreciate it and keep up the good work.

Massive day for me too as it's the first day of Christmas sales, god help us all.

I'd be gutted to see Darmian go, there's no real stand out RB's who are available.

De Gea was always going to leave, just fortunately for us we got another year out of him and a few more million thanks to him signing a contract.

I'd invest the money into Butland who is probably going to be England's next number 1 at the forthcoming World Cup if we give him the stage to perform.

Carrick is past it unfortunately and Mata doesn't suit us, I now see what Mourinho was on about when he let him go at Chelsea, racks up a lot of assists but stats mean little when you watch his weekly performance.

I'd be happy to see the back of Fellaini too, he gives it his all and it's not his fault he was signed but he's really not good enough.


{Ed002's Note - The club will try to fend off any move or Darmian for now and I did give you a wildcard RB. The club will look to GK options and Butland may be an option.}

I’m in the same boat Clemo, find myself enjoying the game less and less. You can’t have a normal conversation with anyone about football anymore as everyone seems so blind with bias. I watch England now and listen to the commentators justify every single dive and ignore every elbow or foul challenge by any England player.

People will be quick to criticise, purely because he's linked to us. Does any question Messi's ability every time he's anonymous for Argentina? No.

People just love to hate us. I say bring Pogba back, purely just because we can. Rub it in the faces of the Liverpool and Arsenal's who are signing second rate players.

Some from the last few years and who people genuinely likened them to.

Jose Baxter, next Wayne Rooney.
Gourcuff, next Zidane.
Elia, next Robben.
Pato, next R9 Ronaldo.

As for Ganso, he could be one of the most unfortunate players ever. I think he broke his leg 3 times in 3 years.
