Hello ed2

Sorry to borher you but seen a report on the internet so thought to ask you on these players.

Firstly, is Romero likely to leave? If yes which sidees are interested? Read Boca juniors are interested.

Secondly Is Manolas likely to leave and are we really interested? On the article I read it said we and Arsenal are seriously intersted.

Cheers!

Deependra

{Ed002's Note - Sergio Romero might look to leave in the summer but it may depend on what happens with De Gea. Boca wanted a loan but he had no interest in that - if he moves he will look to move back to Italy.

Yes Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Manolas but it is Inter who will push very hard for a deal in the summer.}

Ed2 are we looking at any keepers then as there seems to be a chance of one of pur keepers to be leaving or is J. Pereira likely to be considered as good enough prosprect ( I know we still have Johnstone but will he make it here) .

Also ed on the sharkopod you said Rojo is still considered as not dependable and it will be tough for Jones to make it past the summer window as a Utd player. So, has the opinion on them changed with their recent form or still the same? Also who is our primary cb target now as Gimenez is unlikely (or impossible)?

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - (a) Manchester United will be trrying to understand where they are with goalkeepers going forward. They will look to hold on to De Gea but Romero will want to move for game time. (b) Manchester United will look for a different first choice centre back in the summer so Rojo and Jones will slide down the list and possibly out. (c) Lindelof remains very much the wanted player.}

Hi eds
Recently when i asked on the madrid site about the players they are interested in bringing, ed2 replied that De Gea is of interest to them so, man utd must be aware of that and thus surely we are looking at keepers to replace ddg if he decides to leave so, ed2 do you know of any keepers we are actively looking at or was Romero brought in to replace ddg.
Thanks.

For the folks wondering about the "clauses (excluding Santa), this is it as per the legendary ed2


Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax) .

There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a release clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties (clubs) are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that football Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes.

These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club in the same country does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country, the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid and may demand a higher figure.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another and about the legal proximity of the buying side.

We have had an upturn in fortune and allround a feel good factor is there surrounding us although the tougher tests are yet to come.
All the players have performed better than they had before Ole took over. But for me the biggest takeaway from these past 3 games is it has brought our old friend Chris (CTR) back to this page. One of the more frequent poster when I first started visiting the site but less and less posts with time. Good to have you back Chris.

Hello everyone, so it's derby day today. Hope we can show that man utd still has life in them and are a credible threat to all.

I am in a dilemma myself. Should I join the live chat here or not. That last few games I joined, we won them all so, I was thinking of joining but then on Wednesday I didn't join (was too late in the night so fell asleep) and we went on to win the game. so now I can't decide whether I should continue to join the chat or not on match days.

Help guys.

Deependra

{Ed025's Note - i have this strange feeling that united winning has very little to do with you going on live chat deependra, but you are very welcome to participate mate, i dont hold out much hope for utd today although i said the same about the juve game..


1.) 11 Nov 2018 16:14:26
how does one join the live chat? There used to be a hyperlink top of the page but i’ve not seen it ages, assumed the chat had stopped until i seen this post.

{Ed033's Note - Try opening your eyes and look for where it says, "The real time Manchester United Live Chat page will be open...".

{Ed001's Note - no sorry mate, I couldn't scrape enough news together for it and never noticed the time early enough to pad it out with some anecdotes or something before the autolink would generate. I have set a daily alarm now to give me a warning in time to put in some filler so it shouldn't happen again.}

Before commenting on the result I will admit I didn't watch the match. The stream wasnt loading and I fell asleep.

But this is un-f###ing-acceptable, going by the highlights it looks like we didn't play to win, it looked like we were ok if the 90 minutes ended with 0-0. We didn't show any real attacking intent. We were playing a Sevilla team that had, on paper, less quality than us but they showed more desire to get thoroug.

Deeps on paper they spent less money but have better quality.

But how can we ignore his woeful injury record when looking at Bale along with his not so good season last term and his astronomical wages will be a very big pain in the backside for whoever tries to sign him. Although as a club we make a lot of money from revenue but still we are maxed out in terms of wages (ffp), and unlike transfer fees you can't just increase it enormously, I think you can only have an increment of around 5-10% (not sure on the exact figure) from the previous ffp year/ cycle. So I can see a lot of cons at pursuing Bale.

Gds I think people brought up need/ want for RWs and CMs because the op said he would be content with AWB, decent CB and Bruno Fernandes. I too would still want a RW and hopefully another CM on top of them.

Also Weggy do you really want us to go for Bale in "an ideal world"? For me he would only be a last gasp option if only we can't get anyone decent through the door and even then only on a loan without an obligation to buy. I think we shouldn't consider signing Bale at this stage, in an ideal world and rather go for other players like Sancho ( who you did mention) or Chiesa, etc.

Rosspique FB is a really demanding position in the modern game so having 2 good options wouldn't be bad in my opinion if we sign AWB. Also both AWB and Dakota are versatile enough and can provide cover in other positions. Also I think we being homegrown works in favour of AWB and is one of the reasons we are showing serious interest in bringing him here.

I agree with Ed's assessment of Wan-Bissaka. He has been really good defensively, arguably the best fb in the league defensively. And I don't think his offensive game can be questioned too much because as Ed4 stated, Palace aren't the most attacking team and Even if AWB was given the freedom to attack, he would be crossing towards Benteke, the most immobile forward in the league. He would produce better results crossing at a Lamppost than Benteke.

Even then for me personally, if we sign AWB and he turns into one of the best fb defensively but is only "average" in attack, I would gladly take it.

Deependra

{Ed004's Note - I would argue he is the best fullback defensively. Only fullbacks I would have over him are Robertson and Trent due to their attacking threats.}

Completely agreed ed1. The worst decision Ed wayward has made in my view is cancelling the transfer plans in the winter window before LVGs sacking. We were meant to have a meeting with Atleti with regards to Saul. For me Saul is the best all round CM in the world. If not for Kante, Saul would be the best midfielder IMO.

A different question from me but why is the bid in Euros not pounds. We are in the PL, so are West Ham. I think that in itself means the rumour is most likely false/ inaccurate. Or maybe I am being stupid.

Unhealthy lifestyle is what happened to Verrati Wazza. That and Isco in a game against Spain. Verrati is well known to be a heavy smoker and has been caught drink-driving a few times and suffers a lot of niggling injuries.

just top 3 angelred? I can only think of one other CM in the world who is in the same league (class) to Kante which is Saul. For me hands down Top 2 CM in the world. So who is your top 3 angel?
Even when not fully fit Kante had a positive impact in the game against us I think. Having said that it might just be biasness from me.

What is your take on Bruno Fernandes ed1, if you have seen enough of him? Do you think he will be a good buy for us? Also what do you make of Sergej? He was really impressive season before last but had an underwhelming campaign last season. I think this window will be crucial for us, if we buy good players who perform for us then top 4 will be gettable but if we miss out on top 4 again then there might start to be a big gap between us and other 3_4 teams.

Thanks.

Deependra

{Ed001's Note - I haven't yet seen enough of him sorry, but he is on the list for a player profile, so I will have to watch him a lot soon!

SMS seemed to lose his way last season, probably needs a move to relight his fire a bit and wake him up.}

In my view Kroos is a great player when on the ball but somewhat a liability without the ball. I do think he has been a good player, just not as good as the media and most people make him out to be. People don't consider his weaknesses without the ball as much as they do with let's say for example Ozil. Just my take Ken. And why I have never been that much into the idea of us going after him.

Wes Brown is a CL winning RB for us, with multiple league titles. So, just looking at someone's trophy haul won't tell the full story IMO. Keylor Navas has won multiple CLs being the undisputed first choice at GK for Real Madrid, Buffon has won none, neither has DDG. The trophy cabinet in a team game shouldn't be as much important in determining an individual's quality.

IMO Kroos is unreliable defensively, he doesn't have pace, or the engine to be that effective in the defensive side of the game nor is he positionally great to makeup for it and not that good at tackling too. That is why Casemiro, who is somewhat limited on the ball is selected to provide the defence with cover IMO. And they can somewhat makeup for eachothers faults, deficiencies. And those little things are part of the reason RM haven't been as successful in the La Liga (league format) as they have been in the CL (knockout format) . Their team, although great they have been, does have some weak areas that can be exploited relatively easily.

But most likely it is just me that thinks Kroos isn't as great as the media makes him out to be. No doubt he is a really good passer, can control the tempo of a game and has good set piece delivery but still I think he does have glaring holes in his game.

Actually Ken Kroos is one of those players I prefer to avoid talking about with my friends when chatting football because it creates a big divide and discussion and in the end it all just personal opinions and nothing more. I am more a Kante and Saul guy than a Kroos guy.
