With sky currently suggesting a deal for schneiderlin isn't being negotiated, after saying yesterday we were in talks, can any if the eds (ed001 perhaps?) clear this up? (I have searched united arsenal and Southampton sites for any updates)

Dbrooks90

{Ed001's Note - I don't know what is happening with him, sorry. Southampton are very good at keeping things quiet their end. However, there is also nothing coming out from the United end regarding negotiations with Saints either, which suggests it is not ongoing right now. There is interest, but there is also interest from other clubs. Schneiderlin himself has been clear that he won't be joining a team outside the Champions League, which rules out a lot of the interest. Man Utd and Arsenal are the two in England that want him, that are in the Champions League, the price Southampton are looking for has been made known, but neither have made an offer yet. Until someone does make an offer, nothing is likely to happen, though he is looking to move, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some pushing from his end to get an offer going in for him.}

nice one ed!

Ed001

What do you make of some of the reports that we have made a bid about week to 10 days ago and if you read what Koeman said, it could be construed that our bid falls well short of their valuation for the player.

{Ed001's Note - it was not a bid, you asked the price, Southampton named it and you said that you would only be willing to offer a much lower amount. It was an informal chat rather than a bid, but calling it a bid brings in clicks to websites as it sounds more exciting.}


3.) 01 Jul 2015 17:28:56
Well at least we know what's needed to be done I guess that means a transfer could be wrapped up quickly if we decide to go ahead. I read an article by andy mitten who tends to be reliable united wise saying Southampton expect us to get the deal done

An honest question does anyone actually think martial can play left wing?

I keep watching him and he spends half of his time drifting in to the middle and the other walking towards the ball!

If he's going to play wing he needs to start staying wide cutting in at the edge of the area no earlier and staying wide even if he isn't getting the ball.

When he gets the ball he can be effective but again his crossing isn't fantastic so he goes all out for the byline near the post to square the ball or he runs into 3/ 4 players and loses the ball. In my opinion he wants to be a striker and would probably do a lot better there.

Be interested to know other people's opinions.

DB. Absolutely spot on. I've been calling for a winger but everyone keeps saying we've got martial and Rashford. Neither are wingers. I think martial is very inconsistent and needs to buck up his ideas.


2.) 22 Oct 2017 01:13:49
No problem with a winger arriving but much rather for the right we are almost a goal a game from left side attacker it's the least of our worries and that's with very little overlap from leftbacks . The right hand side attack isn't good enough it's either players not in preferred position or lindgard.


3.) 22 Oct 2017 03:46:13
That is his best position, just didn’t show it today as he had a horrible attitude from the moment he was fouled early. He has no left foot so on the right he’d be stuck without the option of cutting inside. He just relies on that one move and when it doesn’t work and he gives the ball away he loses confidence and doesn’t contribute anything else. Today was another example of Jose’s teams struggling to break down a defensive side, but the loss is down to two individual errors imo. Lindelof and mata. The rest of the team looked off, but it wasn’t like we were dominated. Just uninterested and that led to the goals as well.


4.) 22 Oct 2017 10:00:37
I th No he's had a poor attitude for a long time. We've had flashes of great form this year but I worry there is something wrong in his head.

He doesn't seem interested, there is no urgency to get in the box, he looks lethargic and subdued. Given his form in his first season we know he has great ability, he just seems to have the weight of the world on his shoulders. Yesterday he was dreadful.

{Ed025's Note - he is seen as a bit of a brat by people at the club AJH and to be honest thats how he has come across this season mate..

Ed002 as punishment for incessant whinging whining bitching and moaning how about a bullseye moment and we take a look at what we could of had in January? Plus it may show the "toxics" what could of happened this season if they had supported the team.

Dbrooks90

1.) 02 May 2016 18:14:23
Everyone supported the team they didn't support the style of play. There is a big difference.


2.) 02 May 2016 18:32:18
I guess 85 percent of the fan base is toxic going by any poll you look at. Following a Dutch Tulip blindly does not make anyone a better fan. Its our right to show our dismay with what is going on. In case you did not realise we are in 5th and are a shadow of ourselves after 2 years and 250 mill spent.


3.) 02 May 2016 18:38:17
Yh apparently we missed out on bale and neymar in january because ed woodward took notice of the tweets sent by utd fans and messages on forums like this.

If ed woodward was shocked by the dismal december we had where we were knocked out of the champions league group stages and gained one point out of 12 at a crucial stage of the season and decided against giving lvg any more money whilst he was evaluating the managers position then i applaud him. It would have been easier to throw even more money at the situation and try and buy our way out of trouble so i commend ed woodward for his bravery at a tough time of the season.

Also if the 'toxics' are accused of disrupting our january transfer plans, are they also behind the youth coming through such as rashford, borthwick-jackson and fosu-mensah. Surely if the 'toxics' stopped us buying, the 'toxics' helped bring the youth through.

You can't have it both ways or that seems hypocritical to me.


4.) 02 May 2016 18:56:39
Christ on a bike get over it. 02 is gone, she may come back or he may not but I'm sure the constant posts asking him to won't help anything.

The eds are here to edit and we are lucky that some get involved in the chat to and share what they know or think.


5.) 02 May 2016 19:12:58
Based on the managers track record when it comes to signings I think it's a good thing that the plug was pulled on incoming transfers.

You ask where we would be had the signings gone through? I expect fans would be discussing how Anderson was an expensive waste of money. We could have signed Messi in January - but with the current style of play would probably still be battling it out for 5th with West Ham.

As far as I'm aware ED002 left because people kept insulting her and repeatedly asking her stupid questions. I don't blame her. She made her disdain for the attitude of our fans clear, sure - but she also did that with the Liverpool fans and yet still posts there.


6.) 02 May 2016 19:49:00
Well said Chris, people need to move on and deal, with it.


7.) 02 May 2016 20:44:49
Funny 2 people used this as a way to criticise the team which is the main reason people are getting so annoyed reading this site the constant incessant whinging.

As for 2 more yes ed002 did say no more man utd info and has carried that through but has never said don't ask the eds are fantastic all of them and if they choose to give an answer great if they don't fine but it doesn't mean stop asking it just means don't expect an answer.


8.) 02 May 2016 20:54:49
Some fair points there shappy but the reference to 'greasing a runway' is bang out of order.


 

 

15 Jul 2015 18:53:15
Can any of the eds let us know who we have in mind to fill the gap left by rvp and falcao? I would imagine the club would be looking to renew interest in cavani if available? Ed002 mentioned lewandowski apparently we were interested when fergie was incharge? And I would guess we may see how much Tottenham want for Kane?

Dbrooks90

{Ed007's Note - There's more chance of signing Lewandowski than Kane.}


1.) 16 Jul 2015 03:30:47

Thanks ed really hope we go for lewandowski great striker, If the otamendi deal becomes too difficult could we turn our attention to laporte? We know what fee is required and know how to do it after the Herrera deal

Dbrooks90

{Ed001's Note - I would think him unlikely, he seems set for one of the big two in Spain if he goes anywhere.}

I believe les reeds interview with sky also answers this I believe he said we had been talking not necessarily negotiating but there have been talks about schneiderlin maybe schweinsteiger is why we haven't bid. yet, also andy mitten (tends to be reliable) says we are still interested and player has made his desire to join known

We hasn't or isn't John Alexander retiring? There's been an article written stating we have taken on rebecca Britain from Tottenham and the role is being split into 3 with one part being a director of football operations. Not sure if it's all true but would be interesting to know who we are looking at if it is.

Dbrooks90

{Ed001's Note - director of football is nothing to do with a club secretary. I don't know anything about John Alexander retiring though. That would be a big loss.

There has been talk of a DoF, but not sure how that relates at all to a club secretary.}

I wouldn't mind the introduction of safe standing either and believe it would be the best solution for the lower tiers. However upper tiers people should be given adequate room if they are forced to sit like they are at the moment. I'm sorry but if £50 for a seat that doesn't really have enough room for you to sit down already has fans annoyed before the games have even started. Btw no I have not been to an all standing ground but I also fail to see any relevance in that.

I think we should develop the stadium also, however I'd be more inclined to give fans enough room to actually sit/ move around comfortably rather than cramming them in like sardines, might make fans feel the club cares about them rather than their money which in turn might have a positive effect on the atmosphere at the ground? Just a thought.

Was maguire good? or did N'Didi make him look good? like Matic makes our cb's look good like, Fernandinho makes city's look. average, let's be honest there are a handful of good cb's in the premiership 2 of them play for spurs in Alderwiereld and Vertonghen we have one. when he's fit in Bailly, Holgate looks very good. liked him when he managed to over come what he thought was something inexcusable in the Mersey side derby to put in a great second half (BTW not saying Firmino did anything i'm saying Holgate believed he did at that point but let's not get into that too much) . Also Christensen is very good and David Luiz works in a 5 man defence but i feel defenders are getting way too much credit when they are so covered for in modern systems especially Smalling and to a degree Rojo and Jones. Sounds like a rant but i do think defenders are being able to scrape by now the best example being John Stones.

Was at the game and martial was part of the problem, he spent far to much time in the middle of the pitch rather than down the left where he was supposed to be and had a habit of drifting towards the ball rather than space, when he had the ball his runs were good but he needs to stay wider.
