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.}


1.) 22 Jan 2018 12:44:42
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.


 

 

25 Aug 2014 12:48:09
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.


 

 

11 Jan 2014 20:27:28
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.}

Watching the U19’s on tv at the moment. Thrashing Valencia. Fast, attacking, flowing football 👌🏽.

Doc SK

Its to be expected, he's getting old and its 11 v 1.


2.) 02 Oct 2018 16:53:46
Play great football. Hard to judge as 1 team can be on several levels above another. Anyway how about Carrick an Butt till the end of the season? Can't do any worse?


 

 

29 Sep 2018 16:57:13
Ed002, at this rate, your Allardyce suggestion may well be fulfilled!

Doc SK

 

 

12 Aug 2018 07:20:14
Eds, a report in the paper today that we want to appoint a director of football. Any truth in this? I know Ed002 previously said our original choice was not interested. Thanks.

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - The club will appoint a DoF if the right person can be found.}


1.) 12 Aug 2018 11:24:53
Thanks Ed. Are their any potential candidates who you feel would be a good fit for the club?

{Ed002's Note - There is probably only one option within the club and I don't know if they would look to him, John Murtough. The guy they really wanted is employed elsewhere right now and would likely not welcome an approach or any discussion about the job. If they had looked a few weeks ago and were willing to take a bit of a chance, then Jordi Cruyff would have been, in my view, a good pick - but he has just taken another job. A standout like Rui Costa would be a great solution but again he is in work. So right now they will have a third providing advise and they may well use the third party to assist in the full process.}


2.) 12 Aug 2018 15:37:55
Ed002 I love the way you're always in the loop.

And all the other Eds, thanks for accommodating us.

Much love.


3.) 12 Aug 2018 15:53:06
Hi ed, was this third party the one that advised them in the summer window?

It sounded as though Jose had his preferred targets and United didn't opt for those as they felt there wasn't enough value.

It's just interesting to know who was giving advice to Ed Woodward assuming that it wasn't Ed making the calls himself. Be really interested to know.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your question. There was nobody advising the summer transfers.}


4.) 12 Aug 2018 17:29:08
It was a good answer even though you didn't understand the question, thanks ed.

{Ed002's Note - I should say nobody externally.}


5.) 12 Aug 2018 19:54:59
Thanks Ed for your thoughts.


6.) 14 Aug 2018 07:57:29
Thanks for the info Ed002.

I know you don't like hypothetical situations or "Ifs" but I want to ask if you were to choose a DoF for Manchester United among the available options going forward, who do you think will be better in improving our footballing sphere (pun intended)?


 

 

07 Aug 2018 13:14:54
Ed002,

Do you expect us to complete any signings before the transfer window closes?

Thanks.

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - See previous answers.}


1.) 07 Aug 2018 13:47:44
ed has said he expects some business both inbound and out bound, but by god i agree it has been horrible experience so far! i think we need to apologize to ed now for the utter ridiculous and repetitive questions we are all going to be asking over the next two days but by god i hope we get some good news soon otherwise i can see our fan base going into meltdown on deadline day!


2.) 07 Aug 2018 14:10:33
No offence to you Mr DBrooks90 but people shouldn't be asking the same questions over and over again in the first place.

Loads of duplicate questions the last 3 days. again, not directed at you at all.


3.) 07 Aug 2018 14:46:27
they shouldn't, but we're human, might as well apologize now as i only see it getting worse over the next few days until the window closes.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 15:00:14
Doc, could ypu please refrain from asking such benign questions to eds. When we sign someone you'll no doubt hear about it. Fgs, give the Eds a break.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 15:46:31
aaa - why can't he ask questions.

everyone is entitled to ask what they want,

they will get a response from the eds if its a question they don't want an answer or have already covered.

isnt that the whole point of this site - to communicate.

doc don't feel you can't ask anything on here. if the eds don't reply i'm sure one of us will.

{Ed004's Note - I would advise that posters check the previous replies before they ask questions. There's been a tonne posted that haven't even made it to the site all repeating questions that have been previously asked. It can get quite tedious. This isn't me intentionally critiquing Doc just stressing the need to aware that it can get frustrating reading the same questions over and over again and the majority of them aren't even directed for my attention}


6.) 07 Aug 2018 15:37:28
Soz guys and thanks Ed002. Let’s see what happens in the next few days 🙏🏼.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 18:32:48
Love you, Ed004 😂. Anyway, I’ll just go back and drill a few more teeth 😬 Peace ✌️.


 

 

14 Mar 2018 10:47:16
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.}

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.}

Oh final question Ed002 if ok please? How much of a role does Matthew Judge have at MUFC? Is he the one who has overseen the players wages/ contracts?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - Are you looking for someone else to try and blame. He is effectively an assistant to Woodward.}

Thanks again Ed002. Definitely makes more sense for ZZ to return to Juventus. Have a good day.

Ed002, thanks again. I read a statement from Agnelli that Paratici will be given the role of ‘Head of Sports Arena’? Also did Campos used to work with JM at Madrid?

Doc SK

{Ed002's Note - What I suspect will happen at Juventus is that (a) Fabio Paratici will become CEO and General Manager for Sport, (b) Zinedine Zidane will become Director of Football, (c) a new high-end negotiator will be added.

Former Real Madrid technical scout Luis Campos was previously approached by Everton and Manchester United to take charge of recruitment in a senior Director of Football role and declined. He spent time at Monaco and is now at Lille but there has been no recent approach by Manchester United although there was a discussion with another side.}

Rosspique, you seemed to have picked a 3-5-3 system 🤔.
