Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.



30 Jan 2017 08:19:30
Hi all. Amy info on where Young may be off to please?


{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

1.) 30 Jan 2017 11:20:36
"I am waiting for January 31 to know what is going on. I am not happy if he leaves, but he is the only player that I am informed has a possibility of leaving.

"That is why he didn't play and I gave chances to other people, because I don't know if he is going to stay. If I could choose, definitely yes he would stay with us. "jose on young

2.) 30 Jan 2017 15:57:22
I think he might go to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 19:57:09
back to watford maybe



05 Jan 2017 18:44:13
Whispers that Memphis is off to Nice!


1.) 05 Jan 2017 20:19:49
That would be nice for him!

{Ed025's Note - dont give up the day job brad.. :)

2.) 05 Jan 2017 23:29:16
That's a Lille bit of a corny joke Brad. I hope the little Nancy boy does well though, wherever he goes. I don't want Toulouse him because he's as fierce as a Lyon and it Angers me when people slag him off - it's Bordeaux-line rude. He Caen do well if given the chance.

I'll get my Monacoat.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 06:57:31
Magnificent rwwd 😂

{Ed025's Note - very clever...he could be an evertonian if he keeps that up deano.. :)

4.) 06 Jan 2017 09:57:33
hahaha round of applause RWWD made me laugh :-)

5.) 06 Jan 2017 11:13:49
Really takes the biscuit

{Ed025's Note - good stuff wallace..

6.) 06 Jan 2017 11:40:15
RWWD I like that you are Sochaux he can succeed, he's a good player and could be as good as Sedan if he fulfills his potential if i Marseille so myself

{Ed025's Note - are you sure your not scousers kenny?, great wit from the guys on here.. :)

7.) 07 Jan 2017 12:36:43
Thanks Eric79 for keeping us aBREST of the latest developments re. Memphis



09 Oct 2016 01:07:06
Bakayoko of Monaco and Coleman at Everton reportedly the next two in. Bye bye Darmian.


1.) 09 Oct 2016 08:12:47
Wonder where TFM is supposed to break through and play if we buy players for the positions he plays in.

2.) 09 Oct 2016 09:08:24
Good point. Still, I'd like to see us go for Coleman!

3.) 16 Oct 2016 10:23:09

I don't see TFM at right back, more centre midfield but he has to show he is good enough.



10 Aug 2016 18:03:36
Sunderland keen to become Man Utd reserves. They have tabled bids for Fellaini (accepted) and Januzaj. I believe the Fellaini move is a transfer and Adnan a loan.


1.) 10 Aug 2016 18:37:41
I know a lot not me but a lot want Felliani sold but its not happening yes good by Adnan but the wig will be Pogbas partner and rightly so he can play a bit is ruthless towards the opposition defends and attacks corners and set pieces and always gives it his all Jose thinks this so he safe even if a big offer comes in i could be wrong but i don't get it wrong very often lol.

{Ed041's Note - I'd be gobsmacked if Fellani is pogba's CM partner.

2.) 10 Aug 2016 18:53:33
you will be gobsmacked then ed Jose has defended Felliani in interviews and likes his all round game i beleave he is looking at out muscling teams and they don't come much bigger stronger and rougher than the wig.

{Ed041's Note - I don't think I will at all, I think you will see Carrick, Hererra and Spyder play far more games than Fellani.

3.) 10 Aug 2016 20:25:01
Ed Jose has said alread the wig will be very important for the first team he defended the back pass for Vardy stating the amount of water that slowed the ball as the thing at fault he has played him with carrick and i'm shore he will go for out powering teams ie the wig i know people like to use Felliani as our scapegoat but Jose as much as plenty don't like the idea will use him much more than the others.

{Ed041's Note - yes he is important the squad is.

22 Aug 2017 14:48:46
What if this Johnny Evans to City is just a smokescreen and Jose actually wants him back. Would you take him (putting aside whatever the transfer fee would be? ) .

I would and send Smalling the other way.


1.) 22 Aug 2017 14:58:34
He's about on a par with Smalling. Stick or twist? I'll stick.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 14:59:40
I'd swap Evans for Smalling. No brainer.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 15:42:34
There was a point a few years back when Evans started a Champions League game against Madrid ahead of Rio. At that time he was probably playing better football than Vidic too.

Given how limited his chances were with us he did incredibly well. Since leaving and playing regular football he's improved his game massively. It does make me wonder how good he might have been if he'd played regularly from a younger age.

Personally I think he'd walk into our first eleven.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 19:00:14
Don't want either tbh.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 19:41:36
It's obvious our main target is not available so I wouldn't buy anyone else this window we have more than enough imo.

6.) 23 Aug 2017 12:10:35
Maybe this smoke screen will have a domino effect on exactly what we need.



19 Aug 2017 22:35:32
Brilliant start. Pace, power and control combined with expert finishing. Good times 😁.


1.) 19 Aug 2017 23:33:37
Great start. i just hope shaw is going to push on now with the rest of the team, if we have a good attacking left back we will be hard to stop.



10 Aug 2017 10:49:39
What do you reckon guys. Danny Rose for Luke Shaw cash plus exchange deal?


1.) 10 Aug 2017 10:56:50
cash to us or cash to them eric? :-)

2.) 10 Aug 2017 11:05:06
I would be disappointed if we did that, I still have high hopes for Shaw. Maye they are misguided though and the club know better than me, Rose would certainly improve us at the moment but I think Shaw has a higher ceiling if he ever gets fit (or at least did before the broken leg) .

3.) 10 Aug 2017 12:01:43
Danny rose is 27, shaw 22, they could both be at the club together as hopefully we would have plenty of matches to play.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 22:24:25
I would sell them Shaw in a blink of an eye. Rose is a much better player than Shaw will ever be.



06 Aug 2017 15:06:25
Wesley Sneijder spotted at Schiphol airport. On his way to #Nice.

Amazing rumours today.


1.) 06 Aug 2017 17:08:38
Wasn't Mata spotted at Nice airport a few days ago?


2.) 06 Aug 2017 19:59:03
Amazingly announced 40miins ago on the BBC website. I'm furious we didn't go for him.



24 Jul 2017 21:07:47
I'll call it now. Before August deadline we will see all the following come to Utd:

Renato Sanches


1.) 24 Jul 2017 21:43:49
2 out of 4, possibly 3.

2.) 24 Jul 2017 22:02:17
A very optimistic outlook.
If its a loan deal for sanches then i'd think it's worth the risk he has a decent bit of experience and he might do well a reported weekly wage of €60k per week and a €4m per year loan fee mounts to £120k per week.
Juzt watched the inter lyon game perisic came on in 2nd half was tidy. I really hope he comes.
Matic i'd be deighted with
Aurier bit of a headache at psg high risk imo.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 22:35:07
Thomas Lemar? if they can't sign Ivan Perisic.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 23:07:10
I call it that there will be another 4 names in the frame by the end of the week.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 04:23:15
And they will be exactly what we need.

6.) 25 Jul 2017 06:12:59
Maze, more like 44.

7.) 25 Jul 2017 07:45:33
Lemar will go to Arsenal.

8.) 25 Jul 2017 08:16:20
If there's any justice in the world he will


9.) 25 Jul 2017 08:41:08
I think Eric may be right and whilst it will give us a desperate squad, I will still be slightly underwhelmed, I guess the top superstars are either not available or priced out of the market,

10.) 25 Jul 2017 09:16:13
I like the idea of building a great squad and watching them become superstars in front of our eyes. Fergie didn't buy too many 'superstars' and when he did it often didn't work, I prefer the signings like Ruud, Solskjaer, Keane, Vidic who come here to show what they can do from lesser teams than signings like Veron and di Maria who have done it elsewhere and don't seem to fit.

11.) 25 Jul 2017 13:10:12
Maze, what's happened, mate? You're getting more agrees than disagrees in your last few posts! Hope you're not selling out 😀.

12.) 26 Jul 2017 11:21:32
Stevie, you know how it is on here. Everyone hates to love the Maze. It's all taken with a pinch of salt.

Can't argue with that Man from Manc. Miki has looked immense in his actual position. Funny that.

Read it this morning - if he's goes to play every week you can't argue with the move but I'd like to see him given a chance this season but he's behind 5-6 others for a spot in the team.

We all strive for perfection in everything we do - we just very rarely achieve it. We are putting teams away 4-0 rather than 1-1 like last year I don't see the need to highlight any perceived deficiencies.

The improvements on performance and results are so far tangible and markedly improved. We drew a lot of these games 1-1 last year that we are now winning easily. Enjoy it.

This is a great site during transfer windows as the Eds have some amazing info. However it's very negative once the season is up and running. We win 4-0 again and people are on here moaning. Absolutely ridiculous. The way we tore Everton apart in the last 15 minutes was sublime. This was a team the amazing and mighty City scraped a point against at home by the way.

Mata has started the season very well indeed in my opinion.

He's Juanderful.

Actually last season it was against the so called lesser sides where we dropped a crazy amount of points. Lukaku will score for fun against those sides hence why he was bought to turn 1 point into 3. He is also sure to improve playing with better players and coaches each week.

I have no doubt he will be a success for us and already looks good.

On another note shame about Pog, but we have Ander to bomb forward to replace him so all is not lost.

I agree jred. The way the team has started the 11 mostly pick themselves and should have gone again at Stoke but Jose will live and learn from it.

Miki at 10 is incredible and his pass for Lukaku's goal was sublime.
