I'm hearing whispers that a deal for Bruno Fernandes to United is now very possible. Any truth Ed's?


{Ed002's Note - I havge explained the interest.}

1.) 15 May 2019 21:46:19
Thirsty? Windows not even open yet.

2.) 16 May 2019 09:19:45
Window’s open now. Why haven’t we signed him yet?! Another rubbish window!

3.) 16 May 2019 10:22:51
Only open today for domestic transfers Ports - I think?
Transfers from abroad cannot happen (be completed) until the TMS opens mid June.

Sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

4.) 16 May 2019 17:07:44
Transfer window used to be aligned across Europe and now it’s a complete mess.

That’s progress!

5.) 17 May 2019 03:43:59
Why don't we just sign Dennis Wise to leather the little twit in the changing rooms 👍.



15 Apr 2014 09:21:20
Ed's do we have interest in Barcelona's Pedro? Cheers


{Ed002's Note - Barcelona do not want the sell. The only interest that I am aware of is from PSG and Manchester City right now.}

1.) If he ends up at City I will cry!

By far, the favourite player, and one of my favourite ever spanish players.

2.) Aren't Barcelona banned from trading for two windows?



22 Jan 2014 14:20:13
ssn just reported on their transfer centre that their understanding is we won't break the bank to sign Mata so they expect negotiations to last a while longer yet. Also they stated United are working extremely hard on summer targets and that several world class targets are expected to arrive in the summer. They also say a deal for Mata will be difficult but it does not mean that it won't happen. Just have to wait and hope lads we need to pull this one out of the bag


1.) Damon call me a cynic but statements like that would probably entice more punters long term to

2.) This wouldn't surprise me at all just another case of us not paying the required amount for top players all this talk that moyes wants to bring in world class players is never going to happen unless we start bidding properly

3.) Just sharing what I saw on tv mate that's all isn't my personal statement. The thing we have in our favour is chelsea don't have him as 1st choice so how can u value a substitute that highly? I think we may end up getting him for around 32-33 million mark but we will have to wait and see as we need to move with the times as everyone pays over the odds thesedays and that's just how it is if we as a club want to challenge in the transfer market



15 Jan 2014 23:05:27
Rumours that RM have agreed a deal for Sevilla's Moreno? Ed's can you shed any light on this please. Could open the door for Coentrao as he looked as if he got sent off on purpose tonight lol! Cheers in advance


{Ed002's Note - They are looking to buy him - but when is not clear just yet.}

1.) I think Coentrao is desperate for the move to happen. If they go and get Moreno then great, I don't think he would cut it in the EPL - his attacking is great but defending wise is awful.

2.) I said this a couple of weeks ago, Moreno to RM, Coentrao to MU and Buttner to Spurs. Although I think Buttner abroad maybe more likely now.

3.) Yeah would have to agree he does seem really up for the move to us. This transfer window is hell it seems everlasting in waiting for something to happen lads! Two weeks left surely we will bring 1 or two in. Cheers for that aswell Ed



05 Jan 2014 00:49:33
The telegraph are reporting along with a spanish paper we have agreed a fee with RM for Coentrao but I don't know if its true. Ed's can you shed any light on this? Thank you


{Ed002's Note - It is not correct.}

1.) That started from a Twi**er account from a purported Telegraph reporter but according to Mark Ogden who does work for telegraph there's no such bloke at paper, shame its probably rubbish

{Ed002's Note - But surely if it has been on Twitter it has to be true. Let me try an clarify the situation: Manchester United, Monaco and Juventus have previously spoken with Madrid about Coentrao and Spurs have shown an interest. However, Real Madrid have asked the player to stay until the end of the season. The player has said that without guaranteed game he would like to move now if the right offer is on the table. Real Madrid may agree to this and certainly Jorge Mendes has spoken with one EPL club (not MU) and I suspect will be knocking on the door of three more (including MU).}

2.) Any ideas where I can find the interview on the tinterweb ed?

3.) I think he will end up at Chelsea now due to the Ashley Cole situation and the Portuguese connection between manager and player.

Sessengon now being reported. Young players who can develop is definitely the way forward it seems.




07 May 2019 23:51:06
This will be our biggest summer since Sir Alex retired in my opinion. Also I believe we will see the biggest turnaround of players we've ever seen at United. We need to be shrewd in the market and need to ditch this rubbish of signing superstars and get some team players in who fight for each other on the pitch. We need to sort the defence out bigtime and a CB, LB and RB is needed. To get the team we want in one window though is unrealistic but let's get ourselves solid at the back and then build from that.

We are desperately short in attack though aswell for me as we don't have a striker who is intelligent enough to make those runs in behind to cut through teams. Mason Greenwood is only 17 so is very young and I'm not convinced by Lukaku or Rashford! We could do worse than taking a punt on Vardy for a couple of years to be honest your guaranteed 15-20 league goals with him. Solskjaer needs time though and plenty of money and the recruitment needs to be right. Let's get behind him and let the guy build his own team but it's going to take patience before we are challenging for everything again. We have a mountain to climb but we will be back 😁.


{Ed0333's Note - yes but you also have Ed Woodward that’s a massive handicap.

1.) 08 May 2019 10:28:46
Unfortunately Damon, every summer since Fergie has been gone we have been saying the same things going into it. This summer I fear that there is no plan for the recruitment and we will still be chasing all around Europe for scraps.

2.) 08 May 2019 11:24:55
Yes we have not been proactive for a number of years now mate I agree. there's no plan or strategy and even us as fans can see that. Yes Ed I believe Gary Neville hit the nail on the head when he said if he was in charge of running a football club for 6/ 7 years and it was like this he'd think he wasnt doing his job very well lol! Get football men in not businessmen its ridiculous. In terms of incomings and outgoings though Caolan this summer will be the biggest we've seen.

3.) 08 May 2019 16:57:51
100% agree Damon. Just a shame we are still having to say that after 7 years.



12 Oct 2018 08:44:06
Are the rumours true Ed's regarding a return for Zlatan?


1.) 12 Oct 2018 09:54:09
Yh him and smalling at the back should be a good partnership.

2.) 12 Oct 2018 12:25:11
I hope they are not true.

3.) 12 Oct 2018 13:23:17
It's amazing how many supporters (not a dig) have forget just how much of a hindrance he was. Missed tonnes of chances, awful coversion rate, slowed down our play even more so than usual, hindered Rashford and Martial. Only positive was maybe he had a 'positive impact/ right mentality, on the other players.

4.) 12 Oct 2018 14:54:06
You getting mixed up with Lukaku scholes?

5.) 12 Oct 2018 14:55:56
Scholes - Agree completely, but would go one step further. I think the players he was 'meant' to have a positive impact on have gone backwards. There is a hell of a lot of 'too big for their boots' going on at out club, people like Zlatan take that too the extreme. Trouble is half the players think that 90% of the game seems to be talk. I'm looking at Pogba, Rashford, Lingard, Martial - not developed anything like they should have with their potential. Too much ego and I genuinely think the waffle on here about Zlatan helping peoples games (a couple of years ago) is totally unfounded.

6.) 12 Oct 2018 14:55:58
Aww such a bully Ibra is. Some of our players r like small little girls. They need to man up and be like Ibra.

7.) 12 Oct 2018 16:03:59
FZZ, Lukaku doesn't hinder counter attacks, not that we have much, and doesn't necessarily slow down our already slow play like Ibra. Though i still don't think Lukaku will ever be 'Utd quality' unfortunately, would sell him and get Werner.

8.) 12 Oct 2018 16:06:53
No they are trying to be like Ibra, that is the problem!

9.) 12 Oct 2018 16:53:42

It's not ibras fault they didn't get games if they wern't so inconsistent they would have played more.

10.) 12 Oct 2018 17:04:35
The real problem is that they are not like ibra. big mouth but he always delivered throughout his career. Born winner born achiever ibra.

11.) 12 Oct 2018 22:02:27
Agreed Ken.

12.) 12 Oct 2018 23:27:22
Good Lord. Please no.

13.) 13 Oct 2018 00:10:24
We need 4 or 5 players in the squad with his attitude towards winning but we don't have enough players with any of ibras best attributes.
We have too many players that display ibras worst traits but ibra carried those bad traits off because he delivered more often than not throughout his whole career.
I was not one bit surprised he scored a worldie on his mls debut or in community shield etc he would have owned OT just like eric cantona if we had got him here in his prime.
One of the best of his generation imo.



15 Apr 2018 18:03:57
Wow! That's definitely the worst and most embarrassing defeat since Fergie retired. Unbelievable on all the wrong levels. Gutted.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 18:09:54
Poor flat team performance today .

2.) 15 Apr 2018 18:29:53
You have a very short memory. Moyes year was a cavalcade of embarrassments.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 19:17:14
Most embarrassing defeat since Fergie 😂😂 lost 3-0 at home to City and Liverpool under Moyes and consistently played like today under LVG.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 18:46:37
High paid, spoiled players. Hang your heads in shame. I suppose that you won't even have a few sleepless moments of reflection.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 20:20:44
Really? What was the motivation for today? I'm not dismissing a poor performance but what are we playing for Now apart from the fa cup? I imagine most of the players just thought that being on the pitch today would automatically get the 3 points but credit to West Brom. They defended for their lives today and got lucky at the other end. Foster pulled off some excellent saves where as DDG really didn't have a great deal to do.

Hardly season defining.

6.) 15 Apr 2018 22:03:58
Did we not lose today to a team who haven’t won a game since god knows when? Definitely the most embarrassing. We’ve lost to city many times down the years but today was ridiculous in my opinion. It’s so inconsistent at the moment it’s impossible to go into any game feeling confident of the win.



02 Feb 2017 00:29:06
Tonight summed up why martial should be in the team! He was excellent when moved out to the left against Wigan and also had two assists. The guy is class and makes things happen. When we were struggling against Middlesbrough Christmas time he scored the equaliser to get the ball rolling.

When teams are sitting he is the man to penetrate them. Just have to take the positives out of tonight that is we have gained a point on arsenal and we need to kick on now and get some wins under our belt. We don't look like top 4 at the moment and really need to improve.


1.) 02 Feb 2017 00:43:12
Agree on the martial point. So frustrating that what we are lacking is pace, trickery and directness in our attack and we have that in martial. Jose needs to suck it up and play him as we are so narrow and slow when he does not play. And while he is at it he needs to play shaw even if he believes he's not ready because we are awful down the left side. we virtually have no threat from left with blind and darmian there and that makes us very one dimensional and easy to defend at as teams know we are just going to pass it to Valencia who will send a cross in. We have the ingredients to for a good side but we are not playing the right team. So frustrating as we have not taken advantage of dropped points against our rivals. Personally I think top 4 will be tough now but head up and we go again.

2.) 02 Feb 2017 03:21:12
Park, I agree with you on the Shaw front, though I agree with Jose and would have also started Rashford and Mikhi today. Rashford gave their fullback a torrid time in the last match and played as directly as anyone else did today. Mikhi had a poor game, but against Wigan he outshone Martial and ultimately deserved the start. Though as a disclaimer, these comments are made with the assumption that Ibra and Pogba are untouchable, as seems the case (for the record, I'd give all three a run at Zlatan's expense on current form) .

I do think Jose got the substitutions wrong today, however. There looked to be a lot of space in behind their defence, so taking all the pace out of the side seemed counter intuitive. When it was obvious it wasn't Henrikh's day, Martial was the ideal replacement to add some penetration. Instead, their boss recognised that with Mata and Rooney on the pitch, we had no chance of getting in behind and had no threat out wide, so went for 3 at the back and ensured we couldn't play it through them. I advocated Shaw prior to the game to stretch the defence by at least offering some penetration up that flank, and I can't see how he'd have done less than Blind today. Hopefully he and Martial get their head's down in training this week and show Jose that they want to start.

3.) 02 Feb 2017 07:58:12
I think Martial needs to start every game. Ibra had a horrid game tbh and at some point a break is due.

4.) 02 Feb 2017 08:27:25
I think it's pretty clear to see that everybody is droping below the required level at the moment to get us into the top 4 and it doesn't matter who plays, we struggle to put the ball in the back of the net enough on a regualry basis.

Now that goes for Rashford, Mata, Miki, Martial and Rooney.

Seems stange to me somerset you would suggest dropping the only man in our team who has delivered with 14 goals in the prem.
Martial's potential is massive however at times this season, as well as being utter shite, he's also looked very uninterested.
Rashford apprentley gave the ball away 21 times last night and only has 3 goals all season. Martial has 2 prem goals all season. These returns are not good enough and neither will countless season churning out that return.
Rashford work rate and effort/ attitude are not questioned and hence why he plays in front of Martial.
If we had a Rooney of old then i think we would be 2nd however he's not the player he was.
Mata missed a very easy change against Stoke which cost us. Yes i know anyone casn miss chances blah blah blah however he missed an even easier one last night. If you don't take your chances you will struggle.
Miki will still come good i think and is still finding his way in both the team and the league.
On nights like last night when the away team is camped behind the ball the midfield and full backs need to offer better quality. Mainly Herera and Pogba who need to do more in terms of assists and goals.
Having said all that i think Mourinho (who knows a lot more than me) knows it too and that's why we seem to be after Griezmann!

5.) 02 Feb 2017 08:41:47
Can't say I disagree with you Somerset good post. TBH we can all see zlatan looks jaded and is going through another one of those dips in form. But as he is untouchable then it looks like rashford and martial will have to fight for a place rather than play together

6.) 02 Feb 2017 14:05:47
Chorlton, to me it seems Ibra is going through another dip in form - he's played a lot in a busy Christmas period and throughout January and is probably in need of a break. When he doesn't score, he doesn't do much in my opinion and we can't afford to carry someone. We have players from midfield capable of scoring, but I feel his static play sometimes limits the space for them to run into. I'm not saying it as a permament fixture, but maybe a game or two to see if we are more prolific and to give him a rest. It may even dangle the carrot for the young guys and give them some hope of getting a game through the middle.

It could easily not work out for him at Barcelona like it could with us. Coutinho and Dembele are perfect examples who went for huge transfer fees to Barcelona and it hasn't worked out.

Yeah there's a lot flying around on Twitter about. Some claiming it's done and it will all be confirmed in the next few days but I never believe anythings complete until I see the player holding the shirt at Old Trafford. Would be hell of a signing though if we could get it over the line.

I've watched quite a bit of him in the Bundesliga this season. I believe he's only 19. Such a classy attacking midfield player and Leverkusen's top scorer. He scored again today! Such a good league to watch with a lot of goals.

I don't believe so cdp. Depay had a good season last year with Lyon but has been pretty average this season! Salah has been at a consistent level for about 4/ 5 years now with 1 outstanding season being last year. I don't think Depay will ever reach the level of Salah. I'd love it if he returned to United and proved me wrong though I'd be over the moon in fact 😂.

I don't think we can say whether Zaha improved or not. He never really played for us to have the chance to improve. Depay won't make it at the highest level though for me as he's very up and down.

Lucas Moura usually only starts when Kane isn't fit but still has 15 goals for a second choice player. I'd love someone at United who wasnt a first choice who could do that.
