Eds with the Bilbao keeper signing a new contract, does that mean Real Madrid will make another attempt to sign De Gea in the summer?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Real Madid want two "high-end" goalkeepers and were looking to Kepa to be pusing their first choice. They have an alternative in mind for Kepa but have never taken their eye off adding a true first choice - which may ne DDG or someone else.}

Thanks for the reply Ed. Are MUFC planning to offer DDG a new contract?

{Ed002's Note - I have zero interests in contracts. Sorry.}


2.) 22 Jan 2018 12:55:42
I could see them going for Donnaruma.

{Ed002's Note - That is not their intention at all.}


3.) 22 Jan 2018 15:51:23
Courtois.


4.) 22 Jan 2018 21:09:36
Forgot about him.


5.) 22 Jan 2018 20:56:57
No probs Ed, thanks again.

Eds, do you know of any interest from MU in James McCarthy?

Thanks.

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Nope.}


1.) We should hoping for world class talent not just common talent. Even Cleverly is good talented player just not world class talent. I hope we will sign Vidal. If not better we wait for strootman or De jong before we can participate in UCL.

Eds, any truth that we put in a late bid for Daehli and tried to invoke a buy back clause but he refused to come back as he wanted to play for OGS at Cardiff?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Sort of.}


1.) Thanks Ed. Will be interesting to see how he gets on at Cardiff.


2.) 13 Jan 2014 20:05:23
Why would you go to Cardiff instead of Manchester United


3.) Probably playing time, hope he and ole do well


4.) No chance we were back in for him just talk but good luck in Cardiff he will need it to beat the drop


5.) Daehli will do great. Always liked him, brilliant talent and the closest in terms of style to Iniesta that I've seen. I think he'll be a top top player.

Eds. Any truth that we put a late bid in for Daehli?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - There was a question asked about invoking a clause in his contract but the kid had no interest.}

ED 002

Hope you’re well. I know you don’t like speculating about the future, but will our poor performance in Europe concern the board and does it impact Jose’s immediate future?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 15 Mar 2018 05:51:52
Thanks for the reply Ed 002. We have to accept the situation and be grateful that at least we’re better off in the league than the past few seasons.

Ed: Do you know if we have any manager plans for the post-Jose era (similar to the what was planned post-LVG)?

{Ed002's Note - Not as far as I know.}


 

 

15 Jan 2018 08:35:36
Hi Ed002, IF we do end up buying Sanchez, are we still running the risk of FFP sanctions regarding our wage bill?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - POtentially but it relates to something else.}


1.) 15 Jan 2018 11:25:12
Thanks for the reply Ed002. Could these sanctions involve fines or possible bans from competitions?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


2.) 15 Jan 2018 12:34:41
Still think he’ll end up at city.

Good article by Andy Mitten regarding Old Trafford. Ed 002 are you aware of any immediate plans for expansion/ redevelopment of Old Trafford?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - No, the last proposal a couple of years ago made zero sense. Fans and expansion do not add significant value.}


1.) 07 Oct 2017 22:15:23
My mate has a mate who works in the ticket office and he reckons united want expansion to 94000.


2.) 07 Oct 2017 23:10:59
The leg room absolutely kills me.


3.) 08 Oct 2017 07:43:34
Thanks Ed002. Shame as certain parts of the stadium are looking pretty decrepit. If and when new owners take over do you think a brand new stadium would ever be considered or is that just unnecessary?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, one day the stadoium will need to be replaced.}

Ed001,

Another injury today!

What is your opinion regarding our injuries and is it related to overtraining? I know Raymond Verheijen has been critical of LVG's methods.

Doc SK

{Ed001's Note - I am in agreement, LVG's methods leave a lot to be desired and a number of people I know within the coaching fraternity are highly critical of him. Luke Shaw's injuries have been put totally at the door of his training, as have a number of other injuries. He forgets that the players in English football are working at a much higher pace than they do in Holland, Spain and even Germany, so need less training between games once the season starts.}


1.) Thanks Ed.

Do you think he's too stubborn to realise his methods are flawed?

{Ed001's Note - I think he believes that his methods have brought him success, so why change them? This is the problem with someone entering the league with no experience and little knowledge about it. They take time to find out what makes it different, by then it is often too late. He needed an experienced number 2, someone to guide him as he gets used to it. Instead he got a learner in Ryan Giggs. Giggs should be coaching lower down and getting experience in dealing with players, not assisting a new man at one of the biggest clubs in the world. It is a similar error to the ones when Moyes was appointed, when you also had the Equaliser new to his role and it left the club struggling to adjust. Still, this season at least the results have been coming, so that gives time for everyone to settle in and maybe, just maybe, LVG might re-examine his methods in an attempt to curb the injuries, if given the time.}

Rojo had his work permit rejected? Should be ok on appeal Eds?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - If it has been "rejected" it will likely due to the pending court case in Argentina that the club will be looking to clear up.}


1.) Just to point out that the club won't know anything until tomorrow, as today is a Bank holiday.


2.) 25 Aug 2014 14:31:46
I have no idea how these work permits work but could he not play for us without being payed? (until it is sorted of course. )
that way he isn't claiming money so technically he isn't working?

is this possible? like I said I have no clue, it was just an idea.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


3.) 25 Aug 2014 14:34:28
Tier two visas are not dependent on the applicant having no criminal record - although they are judged on the severity of the charges. As Ed002 suggests; I expect the dept of visas and immigration will want to assess the strength of the allegations against him prior to granting a visa.

The whole thing has the potential to be a massive embarrassment for the club.


4.) 25 Aug 2014 15:25:36
lol, didn't think so ed.

Thanks Ed002. Of the current managers around who do you rate highly?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Julen Lopetegui, Leonardo Jardim, Paulo Sousa and Eusebio Di Francesco all have good futures.}

Ed002, have MUFC begun to make provisions for a new manager for when JM leaves? If so, do you know of any other managers they may be interested in?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Not at this tiime Doc.}

Always found it a bit odd that they got Sbragia back in charge.

Why are we still 5 points above you then? One good performance and you start piping up on our pages. Come back when your manager and club actually win some trophies then you can brag.
