Ed001 would i be right in thinking united will probably try bring in a rb, lb, cb and possibly 2 cm's this summer given that carrick is retiring and fellaini looks to be off? could be 6/ 7 leaving united but hopefully tuanzebe/ mensah get squad places. thanks ed.


{Ed001's Note - probably not that many but that would be close to Jose's ideals for the summer.}

I think we need to consider which of the youngsters could possibly step up.

I have high hopes for Tuanzebe so we could in theory not sign a CB and give him a chance. He has never let us down, he has everything to become a top player.

TFM in my opinion should be a midfielder, he could add energy, work rate, strength and defensive solidity to our midfield next season in games where we could do with more defensive cover in midfield. He could also be the long term replacement for Matic and could allow us to rotate more. So again in theory we could save ourselves signing two midfielders by using TFM there.

Or alternatively he could come in and be back up for Valencia and we might not have to sign a RB.

Dimitri Mitchell has had a storming few games in Scotland and looks more than ready for a bigger challenge than Scottish football can offer him. Is he ready to come back and be an understudy to Luke Shaw? Or will Jose want an older more established player to rotate with Shaw?

Andreas Pereira has on occasion looked very good in his two loan spells in Spain, he must be ready for a real shot at stepping up and fighting for a place at our club, I feel it has to be now or never for him.

So we have a youngsters who can cover all the positions Jose would ideally like, and I expect he will have to use one or two of them next season as I don't see the club signing 5 players in the summer. I think we might see three. It it was me I would go with a couple of full backs and a playmaker for midfield.

Good post, but if we were to loose Jones, Smailling and Rojo. ( or two of them), we will have to bring at least one CB.

On Fosu Mensah, personally I think should be played as RB, that's where he has been playing at highest level and performing well, and there is reason is played there by coaches/ managers and not in the midfielders where he played much in the academy.

If Shaw stays I don't see the need of a left back considering Young looks like staying for another season.

For me I think we probably need at least 3 players a CM and 2 midfielders (replacement of Carrick / to rotate with Matic and CAM)

Is there any interest in Stefan de Vrij?

5.) 21 Feb 2018 13:21:38
Ed002 response from the Serie A page

{Ed002's Note - The player would like a move to Chelsea or to Manchester United but right now both have other targets in mind. }.



14 Feb 2018 20:36:12
Are united still looking at umtiti of Barcelona for the summer or have they moved on? united badly need 2 cm's aawell as the centre back.


{Ed002's Note - Yes Barcelona are one of the interested but Barcelona will resist a sale.}



24 Jan 2018 11:26:25
Hey guys just wondering do united retain an interest in julian weigl for the summer? are you doing an updated sharkopod for the summer ed002 now that signing samchez things might have changed? thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Yes the interest remains and it will be updated at some point.}

1.) 24 Jan 2018 20:39:21
Weigl would be an excellent replacement for Carrick as a deep lying midfielder who floats skilfully around in front of back 4: similar players in many ways. Hope we get him.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 20:32:26
Thanks Ed002☺️.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 23:39:21
Thanks ed002 as always really appreciate that πŸ‘.

4.) 25 Jan 2018 11:45:15
Dendoncker from Anderlecht or Lucas Tousart from Lyon should be considered?

5.) 25 Jan 2018 21:32:40
We have replaced a Carrick with Matic. We need a genuine box to box midfielder who wants to defend and support attack to release the shackles on Pogba.



20 Jan 2018 21:54:40
Hey eds/ all,
Hope everybody is good. just a quick question or 2 for the eds if ye get a chance to answer. With mourinhos praise for shaw lately is he he thinking of keeping him? and does the possible arrival of sanchez change his plans for the summer? Will he look to bring in 2 cm's with carrick retiring and fellaini leaving? Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - (a) I would take no notice of anything he said but for now Shaw looks to be staying. (b) Yes, it will make a difference for the summer. (3) Yes, that is perfectly possible.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 23:48:59
Thank you ed002 really appreciate the fast reply πŸ‘.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 13:29:30
Are Leander Dendoncker and Milinkovic-Savic coming in then?

Herrera - out
Carrick - coaching role

Still think Smalling isn't good enough and need another defender!

Is there any truth to this mourinho and pogba business? To me it looks like mourinho has got his new contract and can use that as a safety net/ payout if things go belly up so he can say or do what he likes? i'm just guessing here and probably wrong but thought i'd ask?


1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:17:21
If you believe everything the papers say, then we might as well call it a day. I think mourinho wants more of pogba and let's see how pogba reacts.
My opinion is pogba cannot play as cm or dm. We didn't buy him for that. Play him in front of two midfielders and he'll destroy the opposition. Let's hope mourinho comes to his senses.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 16:41:06
He started off in that position it didn't work out .
Maybe it's not about position? Maybe he is just having a dip in form .

This position crap is nuts, it's not like he isn't allowed out his own half or all he is doing is defending .

In fact he has been subbed or dropped last few games because he hasn't been defending or playing where the manager asked him.
Modern footy is a tactical game where u need to work hard .
And with Sanchez who is a great example of this now In the team pogba has a different role .

Maybe he hasn't really kicked on yet as much as we would like .
Maybe playing in the epl is harder than walking the league in Italy with juve .

Some big questions being asked off him at the moment and rightly so for a player of his ability .
I think he will answer them in time and prove a lot of people wrong .

3.) 16 Feb 2018 17:27:16
Pogba played two of his best games for us a couple of weeks ago. He has had two bad games on the trot which is normal (he has had many bad games since he signed) .

The only difference now is that Jose has started subbing or dropping him.

He could be trying to force Pogba out, he could be looking for a rift that will mean he leaves with a big payout after signing his new contract. Or more likely he feels more confident now to drop an under-performing player of Pogba's stature. Maybe he is trying to motivate him before the CL starts up again and we reach the nitty gritty of the league campaign.

Frankly I don't really care, it's all superficial nonsense. He should have been dropped or subbed many times since he re-signed for us. I'll be glad when Pogba joing Madrid and Jose joins PSG.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 18:05:57
Why does everyone get hung upon what is said in interviews. There a complete waste of time. There worse than mp’s with all their bulls**t. They all have an agenda.

5.) 16 Feb 2018 18:21:37
Exactly Blackpool, all that matters is what occurs on the pitch, there is no integrity or accountability anymore in the top level of the sport (or the media for that matter who are gunning for clicks) .

Pogba is talked about so much because of what he (or his PR machine) do off the pitch. His performances overall don't justify 10% of the press and general attention he receives.

I don't even listen to the post game analysis or interviews anymore if it can be helped - it's all agenda driven and attempting to appeal to those 'weak of mind'. I'm noticing statistics are becoming more and more prominent as well, you always know you are in trouble when stats are constantly being used to try and convince you what you saw isn't really what went on! When the narrative breaks down, out come the stats.

6.) 16 Feb 2018 18:58:02
Jred. I think his form has dipped as he's playing out of position. If he's being asked to defend then we're never going to see the best of him. If he was playing in the right team with the right formation, he'll destroy the oposition.
He's rubbish at defending and tackling. So what's next, are we going to play Sanchez at centre half?
It's nonsense to say players should adapt. We're talking about a pisition that is very critical. It's what wins matches. People like John O'Shea adapted because he was being asked to play at centre back or full back and a lot of players can adapt to that. But not many attacking midfielders can play as defensive midfielders. And more crucially, not many top teams are playing with a two man midfield.
Whichever way we see it, mourinho is to blame. Pochettino will have this team playing sensational football.

7.) 16 Feb 2018 19:24:27
I honestly couldn't disagree more . Every young player needs to do the basics right .
Every player needs to be adaptable especially midfielders .
For god sake " Paul pogba isn't good enough to play cm against Newcastle "

You would think he is being asked to stand in one place and isn't allowed to go in the opposition half .

A player needs and does play in a different position with a different tactical job every game . Some times 2 or 3 different roles during a game .
He played in a cm 3 on the left against Newcastle.
Newcastle? jono was twice as good as him.
