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.. :)

hahaha round of applause RWWD made me laugh :-)

{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.

Nice but of gossip for you but Jose has not block booked at he Lowry beyond June this year.

Now clearly thus means he could be moving to a house, or just waiting for the offer from Paris to arrive. Who knows. All we do know is this marriage of convenience continues for now between him and the club.

I for one think he'll be gone for the start of he 19/ 20 season and Poch will be in place.


{Ed002's Note - There have been several offers from PSG already Eric - and there won't be anymore in the short to medium term.}

1.) 18 Apr 2018 11:12:42
Eye opener Ed002 😉.

2.) 18 Apr 2018 12:46:41
What is the obsession with Poch?
If we wanted an Argentinian spurs manager who plays attacking football but can't win anything Ardiles would be cheaper.

3.) 18 Apr 2018 14:02:46
Pochettino is a good manager, and his team's are entertaining to watch. I wouldn't be against him becoming our manager. There are questions about can be win things, and they will continue until he does. However, I am prepared to give him a little benefit of the doubt as he is managing a team that historically struggles in the most competitive league in Europe. He consistently has Spurs punching above their weight. Unai Emery will win the league this year to go along with his Europa league titles he picked up at Sevilla. Would people want him over Pochettino?

There are some good young managers about, Jardim, Tuchel and Marcelino is doing impressive things with Valencia atm.

Pochettino is a good manager, but he isn't the only one.

4.) 18 Apr 2018 14:12:59
Agree shappy I don’t think that we should discount someone because they haven’t won anything. I don’t think that should be the most important criteria. We have done that with Jose and LVG and we haven’t set the world alight with the style of play. I would be happy with Poch, jardim or even fonesca at Shakhtar who has done really well there beating city in the group stages. I have a feeling Carrick might become an option when Jose goes. Just a hunch obviously there is no guarantee. But if the club think he were to be the right option then that would be a risky but potentially fruitful appointment. I like Poch, I like the way his teams play and I like the way he carries himself. Seems a very good man manager m. He has been found wanting in big games tactically though which is a concern. But with united budget I think he would have done better than Jose.

5.) 18 Apr 2018 15:19:46
A friend of mine, lenny henry has told me that he's booked the city centre premier inn for next season because they have free parking.

6.) 18 Apr 2018 16:54:48
Poch would be very good for us imo. I don't understand the argument saying he hasn't won anything so isn't right for the club. We have a current manager and our previous manager that have won the lot, but they clearly aren't fit for purpose imo. If anybody seriously expects Spurs to be winning the league or CL in order to rate Poch then I think they are not being realistic in their judging criteria. Only one team can win both competitions and Spurs winning either would be a major coup when you factor in the opponents they face and resources.

It's the same thing as when people sometimes say 'George Best was not the best because he never won a World Cup', or likewise with Messi now. It has very little to do with how capable they are whether the team wins things, it's the resources and tools at their disposal both as a player and manager that has to be factored in surely - not to mention the scenarios they are in!

Spurs look the best they have in my life time and I'd believe Poch is overachieving - Utd and Jose on the other hand.

7.) 18 Apr 2018 17:09:35
were on course for our best finish in 5 years.

I don't get the jose out.

We all complaining of stability yet want to get rid of another manager again. 3 managers in 5 years.

8.) 18 Apr 2018 22:05:37
Exavtly Bolger.



15 Apr 2018 05:58:02
Just saying, but if we'd have played like Spurs did at home to City and rolled over and had our belly tickled, Jose would have been hung, drawn and quartered. Meanwhile Poch is the man a large majority want in charge. Spurs have always bottled it when it counts under his stewardship so far!


1.) 15 Apr 2018 06:33:11
Eric no matter what, a lot of people will not give credit to Jose 🤣🤣. Other club supporters is giving him 💩 and even some of our supporters are.
I’m not a super Jose supporter but he is afterall our manager so as I support ManUtd I will support the manager. If Jose is bad I’m sure the board will know when to look for an alternative.
For me I would be look at his ultimate performance next season before I judge him. We will have an indication mid season and then we can manager hunt if if is showing regression.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 08:51:05
Jose is the best in the world.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 15:06:38
I think the debate about low press and high press was surely answered? The simplicity of the first goal was just pathetic. For the Tottenham CBs to be squeezing so high up the pitch with the pace of Jesus and Sterling against them was just plane stupidity.

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on the situation. The problem was a lack of pressure on the ball, as their high press was non-existent. If you have pressure on the ball, then you push the centre backs up, if you haven't then they should drop off. That is nothing to do with high or low press, it is basic defending.}



23 Feb 2018 09:25:52
All this talk of style of play etc has echoed what's been on my mind for a very long time.

I've had a season ticket for a very long time at Utd, and enjoy the odd away game too for fun and atmosphere when I can avoid morons fighting etc.

However, it's all just extremely dull going to Utd and has been for a long time. It's a chore not a joy. Our style is no fun to watch, and I don't like the way the game has gone. I don't relate to the players or the owners of the club, and I am starting to resent giving them my money. Sanchez earns 5 times more Than me in a week than I can in a good year.

I can't recall a Utd match I've come out of breathless and buzzing from in a long time. I'll go to the Chelsea match this weekend and will come out after a 0-0 deflated, or indeed we might win 1-0 and pretend it was a "great win".

Don't get me wrong, it's not just our club it's all of them. And don't get me started on international football as that died years ago.

I'll always love Utd, and always have this romantic notion in my heart of what the club stood for. Sadly, today's reality is not the same and I have come to the conclusion I'd rather invest my time and money into my growing family rather than Woodward's coffers and TV executives etc. I'll still go to some games, but frankly don't enjoy it anymore. This feeling started during Sir Alex's reign before anybody thinks it's since he left.

All the best,
A Sad but also relived Eric.


1.) 23 Feb 2018 12:24:10
Eric, I know exactly how you feel. It has been going backwards for some time. We have more points than last season, but we have also spent the odd million, so we should be expected to do so.
The sad and frustrating thing, is that in Sanchez, Martial, rashford, Mata, Pogba, Lingard and Lukaku, we have a fantastic set of attacking players. But the way they are being played and stifled, is the problem.



07 Jan 2018 10:32:11
Hi eds and posters,

I'm a little behind the times but with a lot of our players in the final year of their contracts, I'm a bit lost on who has signed and who we have triggered a one year extension on. The players I am referring to notably are Shaw, Mata, Herrera, Young and Blind. Fellaini i know is ongoing.

Can anyone help? Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - One for Syd.}

1.) 07 Jan 2018 12:28:24
I think I read that Shaw Mata Herrera and blind have been signed on for another year .
Young wants a two year deal .
And fellaini could be joining up with Jose at PSG.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 15:20:40
Ooooh. Controversial, jred :)

3.) 07 Jan 2018 16:32:56
All including young its reported have had the 1 year extention option triggered by the club all run till 30 June 2019.
Fellaini had his triggered last year and his runs till 30th June 2018. He is free to sign a pre contract with non epl sides to move as a free agent next July. I july he is free to talk to all clubs in the epl. I think Turkey is the most roumered destination for him if jose can't convince him to stay. But he has only started 3 league games this year so it's likely he sees his future elsewhere.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 17:20:05
Fellaini been Injured for a large part of the season.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 17:54:14
Either way he needs to go.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 18:01:51
Even if the manager wants him?

7.) 07 Jan 2018 18:50:26
Would rather he stay mort.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 19:32:22
Great thanks chaps. Happy for Fellaini to go as will force our hand to replace him with better.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 21:26:30
If he wants to go jred we can't force him to stay.



28 Dec 2017 11:32:12
Completely silly post coming up but here is my January transfer dealings I'd like to see although unlikely to happen:

Darmian, Rojo, Blind, Fellaini (clearly wants out so sell him on)

Evans, Rose, Özil or Barkley (given the prices quoted we'd be mad not to go for one now with their contracts coming to an end), TFM and Pereira recalled, Tanuzebe to replace Darmian, Goretzka

Ps why not give Martial or Rashford a go up top to give Lukaku a rest?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 12:15:52
Isn't it to much of movement for January window?

2.) 28 Dec 2017 12:11:45
Would only take Ozil out of them. Maybe Goretzka. Aim higher than Evans, Rose injury prone, don't rate Barkley.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 12:33:38
Evans as in Jonny Evans?

4.) 28 Dec 2017 14:56:30
Absolutely bang on the money eric79, that was a silly post.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 21:18:10
Thank you. I’m here all week.

Although selling Evans and replacing him with Rojo was pure stupidity.

I think the club is backing Jose and a third season will see what he can really do. We’re not blind, the current back four is nowhere near good enough to win a title, so full back and centre halves are a priority as is an improved midfield. Matic cannot play effectively every single week and I’d love to see Martial paired with Lukaku up top with Sanchez supporting.

If Alderweireld is available he’d be the signing for me! Top quality.

Media spouts nonsense and the page goes into meltdown blaming Jose for this and that. Blah blah noise. Read what ed2 says above. None of which had anything to do with Mourinho. It’s very tiresome reacting from day to day on this stuff.

Jose hates youngsters so much he didn’t go to school and won’t talk to his children until they’re 25.


{Ed001's Note - that's not true Jose loves kids, on toast with a bit of cheese, but he couldn't eat a whole one...}

Jose is slowly but surely getting rid of all LVGs signings except the ones he likes. Rojo, Herrera and maybe Romero (unless he wants first team football) are the exceptions.

Had a debate with a mate of mine tonight. Spurs built on sand. Once Poch leaves, and he will, they’ll go back to their usual level whearas now Wenger has gone, Arsenal are the real threat when they regroup. Great stadium, youth set up, location and cash.
