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.

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.



22 Jul 2017 12:12:37
Renatinho sanches loan to buy rumours gathering pace. Makes sense as Jose loves him and may think he can get the best out of him in the Manchester sunshine.


{Ed004's Note - It would make sense. Adds a bit more cover and means more money to spend elsewhere. Carrick, Sanches and Periera would be good squad options}

1.) 22 Jul 2017 12:34:14
I agree Ed think it has the potential to work well. Still more worried by our full back positions going in to the season unless Darmian is staying.

{Ed004's Note - So do I but hopefully we get Aurier and that sorts out the right side. Worried about left back but if Shaw could step up we would be fine as we have sufficient cover}

2.) 22 Jul 2017 12:34:37
Don't think Sanches is a good player at all. We shouldn't waste time on him. If it's about adding cover, we can try taking some other player on loan.

3.) 22 Jul 2017 12:46:19
If Sanches was English he would be getting slated on here as just another over hyped youngster .

4.) 22 Jul 2017 13:03:31
Depends on the cost imo. A high percentage of these ' wonder teens' don't reach the level required by time they are 22.
That said he is a top talent but we have a couple of those already that have yet to play consistently at the level required in shaw and martial so its high risk.

5.) 22 Jul 2017 14:18:04
I think his nationality is totally irrelevant, except in the sense he is Portuguese and Jose will have kept a keen eye on him for that sole reason. Last summer he was one of the most sought after young players in football. He's not settled in Germany at all, which didn't make him suddenly a terrible footballer. If Jose thinks he's good enough, let's get him in.

6.) 22 Jul 2017 15:06:14
He play 20 odd games for benfica and got a big move and then been very poor.
Played well for half a season.

7.) 22 Jul 2017 15:38:52
Same as shaw and martial at united grucic at Liverpool kieta if he signs. If the pedigree is there from young and a young player has a decent season big clubs will pay for that potential but sometimes those players never hit the heigths expected of them for a variety of reasons. Some of ciurse go on to babe stellar careers some fade away And others just become decent pros nothing special. For every scholes or giggs there odds a thousand or more januzai's.

8.) 22 Jul 2017 16:24:50
Sanches has played 24 league games for benfica he wasn't great in all of them either .
He has been shocking for Munich.

If it was a young English lad no one would want him not based on last season, he was shocking .

9.) 22 Jul 2017 16:54:40
Don't agree and more importantly, looks like Jose doesn't either.

10.) 22 Jul 2017 17:47:36
Did you see all 24 games from your armchair to define he was not great in all of them?

11.) 22 Jul 2017 17:48:07
As i said like martial.



24 May 2017 15:34:40
The nerves and excitement are now beginning to kick in. Didn't get a ticket in the ballot so hope the lucky few have an awesome time and we put on a great show and bring the trophy home.

Instead I was over in Liverpool today with work at Liverpool FC which has made we want to win it even more badly now! To be fair to the fellas there, they wished us luck!

I've said it before. If Matuidi was all that, there's no way in hell PSG would let a French international leave their ranks.

Tony is 32 and has a niggling knee injury that may cause issues this season. I'd go all out and get him, and use Darmian / Shaw / maybe Blind at left back this season.

Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan him but he can't do it all season alone and our system relies on fit full backs overlapping.

We talk about youngsters a lot on here filling in but this season we need to go for the title. If they are good enough they'll get a game. If not, we will buy replacements.

Massive upgrade at right back for us, but also a massive tool. We shall see where ends up.

We have rash and martial for the left, so ideally we need someone for the right. Unless Rash switches flanks which he has played before and martial plays left.

If it has to be one or the other I'd pick Rose any day of the week and twice on a Sunday. I understand why people are torn though as Shaw has the potential to be a worldly. However, sometimes things don't work out at clubs and Shaw has never stayed fit (even without the horrendous broken leg incident) and always been criticised for his attitude. Rose has an arrogance about him that means he can take the pressure of stepping up to a bigger club. I'd go all out for him as he would add some great balance and width to our side as well we being a good defender.

However, having both would be excellent and would surely spell the end for Darmian or Blind?

To be honest I'm happy he's staying if that's the case. He's a decent player, Italian international and played out of position does a good job for us.

Villa Park 1999 Cup Replay. Arsenal 1-2 Utd. Truly awesome when Giggs scored. I've never lost myself so much in a celebration. Until a few weeks later when I was in the Nou Camp. Amazing.
