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?

Classof82

{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.}


1.) 04 May 2018 19:03:21
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.}


2.) 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.}

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!

So it would appear martial is to be shown the door, griezeman is off to barca, isco to the rabble, chelsea fancy a sniff at bale (moratta back to madrid? ) ramsey, varane and umtiti linked, pogba apparently now to stay (? ), doucoure from watford mentioned too, i just hope the equalizer (sorry, edward woodward-showing my age there) has his bags packed, flights booked and a brand new cheque book ready to be used, i just think more signings are needed if existing players leave, retire as well (smalling, darmian, blind, shaw, etc), i'd like to see jose sign some more experienced players, who are maybe in the twilght of their career,2-3 seasons left in them just to add balance-yes there's a risk with injuries, but managed properly it could work, but its joses' big big window this summer, here's to him having a corker for all concerned.

Classof82

{Ed001's Note - no mention of Alderweireld or Rose?}


1.) 01 Apr 2018 09:58:59
Yesterday i read reports linking Manchester United to 26 different players. Obviously most of that is nonsense on top of that i rwad links of 11 players to potentially leave. Ddg being the only one of those i'd imagine jose would be desperate to keep.
My point is don't mind what you read ed002 gives the best steer on what's realistic.


2.) 01 Apr 2018 10:08:43
I think Shaw will stay. A few fringe players out inc Carrick, Blind, Darmian and Fellaini, with a rightback and two mids coming in. Not too sure about rightback, I do like Fabinho but still prefer him in midfield. Maybe that could be a reason to go for him. Savic/ Jorginho would be fantastic additions in midfield.


3.) 01 Apr 2018 10:30:09
Why would Shaw stay?


4.) 01 Apr 2018 12:53:50
Every year half the squad is going to leave and ten new players are going to come in. The reality is much different. I think Shaw may even surprise us all to will be first choice.


5.) 01 Apr 2018 13:44:09
Surprise? I think the shock would kill half the stadium if he lost the weight and knuckled down.


6.) 03 Apr 2018 03:14:58
Sorry ed001-i didn't mention alderweireld because Barcelona are all over him at the moment and as for rose, a certain mr. levy has been heard making noises of starting bids in the region of 60 million+! -hence why jose is looking for better value for money, i think give tuanzebe a crack but i don't think jose will though, oh and 1 final whisper is the one about dembele from spurs as a good option as a squad player, i'd be happy taking a punt on vardy, proven striker, tenacious and always a pain to play against., keep him stocked up on fags and a fruit machine and everyones' happy!


7.) 03 Apr 2018 13:38:28
I think you are going to have a heart attack come summer Class if you are believing all of this stuff already.

I would think Alderweireld is the most likely to be signed in the summer but we have 2 months until then so no need to worry about it yet (or in the summer really as the signings have been good in recent years) .


8.) 03 Apr 2018 18:40:34
Hope your right GDS2,its reported that today psg have agreed to match alderweirelds' demand for 10 million-a-year on a five year deal, with that on the table, barca also watching, will the board match the offer, time will tell.

16 Mar 2018 19:43:30
Ed-have your anything about the rumour that jose is still interested
in seamus coleman and is having him watched to see if he can get back to where he was before the injury, i wouldn't be upset if that were to happen, he'd be a great signing and the type of player fit to wear the jersey, shades of dennis irwin about him, no nonsense, no dramas, just about the game first, nothing else.

Classof82

{Ed025's Note - he would be a good signing for united C82 but i cant see that one happening, he is very happy at everton and rumours are that he will be offered the captaincy which i think he will relish mate..


1.) 17 Mar 2018 06:10:10
Cheers Ed025 for that.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 14:16:09
I agree 025 i think that ship has sailed. Best rb in the league by a distance over last 5 years imo.
But let's not fret valencia is not 40 yet so no need to replace him.

{Ed025's Note - his zimmer frame does get caught up a bit on muddy pitches though ken.. :)


 

 

14 Mar 2018 21:29:40
So, a few salty rumours going around are that de gea wants off, unless of course a new manager comes in, again psg being linked with pogba, apparently involving a swap deal for verratti? also claims they fancy bringing martial back to the land of garlic, madrid also keeping a watching brief on de gea, varrane? also mentioned in the deal, but i'm guessing this will mean nothing until after the world cup, there are those on here who say because of lack of experience and not having won anything its too early to go for
pocchettino, to that i say balderdash, managers like him come along once in a red moon (well i wasn't going to say blue was i! ), which ever club he's been at they've improved, the players buy into his plan, i don't hear too many complaints and the management love him, he's not the big i am and acts with class and dignity, all in all i think he'd be a good fit, so take the risk and roll the dice, or change the name to 'turgid' united!

Classof82

1.) 14 Mar 2018 22:54:55
If you were in Pochs shoes would you take the job? He’s got a lot going for him at Spurs with their new stadium being built and he has a solid team. That being said of course United are classed as a bigger team but the gaps closing. Any manager that’s willing to take the United job has to be ready to scrap and fight against Pep and Man City. Would I take Poch? 100% I would but would he join us? Possibly but I’m not sure.


2.) 15 Mar 2018 00:07:41
Dan I think he would jump at the opportunity. As great as spurs have been they won’t ever give Poch the financial platform to compete with the very best. At united he at least has the opportunity to match city spending. Remember we are still Man Utd - one of the biggest clubs in the world. At the end of the day money talks. You pay enough for Poch and sell him a vision then there is every chance he will come. For any manager the opportunity to revive the wounded giant would be an opportunity they would relish. If they don’t then they are not right for us. Simples.


3.) 15 Mar 2018 00:12:20
Dan, no discourtesy to the spuds but the difference is chalk and cheese, as for would pochettino take the job? well, he could stayed at southampton and gone along quite nicely for years building steadily, but he plumbed to go to spurs at a time when all was not sweetness and light, frim what has happened since, he gave kane his big chance, changed the style of play and has promoted from the youth team year on year, all the players who've come through have not looked out of place in the premiership, something supposedly legendry managers like lvg didn't achieve-apart from 1-Rashford-for me a criminal return and waste of the academy players, as for jose, Mctominay for sure, but then come a big game, he goes and picks fellaini?! -give the job to pochettino, and let's stop the the fannying around, be brave or enjoy mediocrity for years to come.


4.) 15 Mar 2018 07:35:18
Dan you're right the gap is closing. We finished 6th last year and now we're ahead of them. Poch is a good manager but has really dine nothing of note. He did a better job at Southampton.


5.) 16 Mar 2018 14:59:54
I agree 12 days.
You get a few on hete slagging off posters always wanting shiney new players but they want a shiney new manager. Double standards.
We have a veru good manager over achieving posiruon wise with a lot of poor players.
However he is massively under achieving style wise. That will improve when he gets rid of the average joes.

Seeing as the defence is just as important as attack for jose, why not go nuts out and sign not only alderweirald but also eric dier, i think dier could be the leader needed, give the spuds shaw, smalling and jones, heck give them martial if it gets the deal over the line, at least that way its put to bed now, and not spent in a bidding war over the summer on players from other leagues who normally take a season to settle in, spend extra if needed, just get players in so the team can hit the ground running, hungry and angry for wasting last season, splash the cash now.

Wow, give them 4 players so that we can get an average defensive midfielder who has never won a thing? Talk about an overreaction / absolute nonsense.


2.) 21 May 2018 17:27:07
Not a fan of Dier myself, he gives the ball away a lot, very average at most parts of the game. He can make good last ditch tackles and is decent in the air, but we'd get our pants pulled down for Spurs weak link imo.

{Ed025's Note - very average for me beast..


3.) 21 May 2018 18:20:04
What about lindelof?
30 odd mil didn't even make the bench for the final .
Have we Give up in him.


4.) 21 May 2018 18:37:00
Dier is so average it’s painful. I would like to see Alderweireld come in but we already have two very good young cbs at the club who we should be building our defence around. Lindelof and bailly have hardly been allowed to play together or build an understanding. That is 60m spent on defenders the manager wanted. No point buying more if he is going to just bench them for dumb and dumber (jones and smalling) . Perhaps giving bailly and lindelof an opportunity to make the position there own would be the best way forward. It’s not rocket science.


5.) 21 May 2018 18:37:22
Dier is often exposed and slow thinking. He is no better than Phil Jones at CB or CM.


6.) 21 May 2018 18:42:06
Lindelof improved a lot over the season, just think he needs a good run instead of the odd game, shame he never really got to try and build a partnership with Bailly this season.


7.) 21 May 2018 19:15:15
Alderweild and Erickson will be my pick of the Spurs team.


8.) 21 May 2018 20:11:20
Glad to se eopinions to my own on dier I think he’s dire (waheyyy) he doesn’t offer anything really, bad being a utility player. Think I’d rather have jones as much as he makes mistakes he puts 110% every game.


9.) 21 May 2018 20:35:50
Fair do, i was just thinking maybe its time to buy players who know the league, as for dier (dire), fair enough, i just think he could do a job (yes a bad one, before anyone says maybe), but he has leadership quality, look the likes of when tony adams started at the arse, even his own fans called him a donkey, look at john terry at chavski, not blessed with pace or technical ability, but again it was what he brought as a whole that made the fans (and players' wives! ) love him, i see dier in that same mold, clearly the united dressing room is lacking someone to bring them together, and so far there's no-one stepping up;so for me, dier could be that man., but that'll be just me again then!


10.) 21 May 2018 22:03:52
dose not lindelof play right back for sweeden when asked we could save money there instead of buying shiny new players all the time.


11.) 21 May 2018 22:21:05
Agreed Cesar never seen the obsession of praise in dier. Never been impressed by him. Too slow as cb and has not got a good enough passing range to play defensive midfield.

Dawz- that would be square pegs in round holes again. Lindelof was bought to play cb and should be played there. Need to start playing players in their proper positions.


 

 

16 May 2018 12:30:34
In regard to shaw, and i'm sure jose probably is already on board with this, include him in the deal for alderweireld, pochettino got the best out of him, and shaw talked up poch. in the past, so bob's your uncle there, and as for a player who could fill michael carricks' boots (if that's possible) why not go for jonjo shelvey, can pick a pass, is mobile and has an eye for goal-discipline wise, in the past he was left wanting, but under benitez he looks to have finally got it and is getting mentioned in reports for all the right reasons, i think he's underrated by many?

Classof82

1.) 16 May 2018 12:48:08
Shelley has had a couple of good games towards the end of season because he’s been given time on the ball. Rooney looked quality as a midfielder with time on the ball. He’s not good enough I’m afraid and is at his level with Newcastle.

8.) 26 Apr 2018 12:52:01
Never really got a fair crack of the whip but he just did an interview saying it was his fault. Far enough to the lad shows he’s matured and taken accountability. I like him he is always a threat and is very direct. Wins a lot of penalties but he does dive a lot. Not sure if he is better than we have got. But city seem to be interested in him so says a lot I think about his talents.

Nice to see mr. pogmoji saying he's a united player 'at present' and when asked about the psg link he was good enough to say if all the rumours were true then he'd be everywhere!, now that might cool the gossip columns to a whisper, but only to be asked if he has any problems with the manager to reply that he has no problem with 'mourinho', now either mr. pogmoji went to public school where its the done thing to address your fellows by their surname, or that's a very subtle dig at jose, bearing in mind he goes onto say that he's the coach, and being a professional 'he'll do what he's told and that's all'-this is a quote reported from mr. pogba directly so if its wrong i put my hands up, but if reported correctly, it sounds like someone is playing silly buggers, be it the player or those connected to repreesent him.

Dembele will cost a lot considering what Barcelona paid for him. And if he is struggling at Barca ( some rumours say its due to atitude problem, ) I don't see him succeeding at Utd under Mou.

Barca need to be interested on Martial and Utd to Dembele at least to have any chance of exchange to happen.

Mountain out of a molehill, whatever he says will be twisted to sound worse than it is, last thing we need is our own fans twisting it, the press do that enough.


4.) 23 Apr 2018 09:03:29
I don't pay a huge amount of attention to what players say when being interviewed. It's a staged environment and as such they are acting.

How often have we seen a player say one thing only to find out later that it was a lie. Like Ronaldo saying he was happy at United while trying to engineering a move to Real Madrid. If he was that happy they why leave?

Of course there is the other issue that for a large number of players during an interview they are often talking in their second language and therefore mistakes and misinterpretation can play a part.

But for the most part it's staged, they aren't speaking from the heart but from a script.

For all intents and purposes you might as well believe what is said in films more than what comes out of a footballers mouth.

Like the positivity over lindelof, alas i feel the special one may not be willing to put his trust in him if the likes of giroud and moratta play together, but somehow i feel conte will mix it up and use a big target man, but go for a pacey player up top too, maybe pedro, which also begs the question, does jose trust bailly fully yet, or has leaving bailly out of the starting line up recently been another cunning plan to inspire bailly-my guess is jose and conte having a big smackdown WWE style on the sidelines, players getting involved and certain galic legend dropping his kronenburg 1664 pint and going all bruce lee on chavski's asses! -now that would be a carlsberg advert i'd love to see!

Old Plop at the blue rinse mob is no doubt a slightly above average manager, however, if he doesn't rate a player, then you'll know the side of him that he's careful not to show, he reminds me of a tv character with a split personality, or put another way, if he were a pet, he'd be a cat-when he gets what he wants, couldn't be nicer-but when he doesn't get his own way, out comes the dummy and off he saunters to whoever is the biggest club at the time--where as to me jose is like a dog, he has his good and bad side but least what you see is what you get, no pretence, you either like it or lump it-and one final point, in plop is this worldy of a manager, how come he's never had the nads to go to a club with a limited budget and build a team where being a good man manager trully counts, say what you like about jose but he's ticked that box in portugal, old plop has only ever been at a club or Gone to a club where previous managers have left him top, top players to work with, so does that mean he's arrogant enough to think that's his level, nothing else is worth his time, or simply he hasn't got a pair enough to prove himself with a less than stella squad, so as for being the best manager out there, for me that's a NON.

Bearing in mind jose has mentioned people earning his trust before he'll trully open up, you can't be too surprised by his decision surely? as mentioned above, having a different point of view is a BENEFIT most of the time, i'm put to mind that his old no.2 was able to temper jose's anger on the touchline on more than 1 occasion, and when jose was frothing he stepped in to give the after match comments, with no 'safety-net'for next season i hope the special one can make like a zen buddist, and not like a certain character in a well-known play, watching rome burn while he was on the fiddle (figuratively speaking of course! ), this has got to be jose's season i reckon, for all concerned.
