Morning Ed,

Just curious as to whether interest remains in Dybala and whether Juve hold an interest in Sanchez?


{Ed002's Note - The interest from Dybala is from Inter Milan and an exchange involving Icardi has been proposed. No one is interested in Sanchez because of his wages.}

1.) 20 Mar 2019 09:36:40
His wages plus the fact he hasn't had a good game in 18 months to 2 years.

2.) 20 Mar 2019 09:55:16
Griezmann would be a good option for us in RW position. He has more pace and relentlessly presses from the front.

{Ed002's Note - He doesn't play on the right wing.}

3.) 20 Mar 2019 12:56:05
Since when did greasyman play RW?

4.) 20 Mar 2019 16:37:32
He's more of a right tool than a right wing.

5.) 20 Mar 2019 18:07:25
Griezmann on the Right side drifting in along with a front 3 with Martial and Rash would be good for counter attacks.
Although Griezmann prefers to operate on left or through middle.

6.) 20 Mar 2019 20:10:46
We need to stop signing square pegs for round holes. Griezmann is a Woodward signing. Big name, poor attitude and not what we need player wise.

We need the right players for us to move forward and progress. A CB who can play out from the back. A RB who can cross and defend. A creative midfielder who can help retain the ball and offer a creative outlet. Then a RW who can stay wide, cross and create goal scoring chances.

It doesn't matter whether they have a big name or not, just that they have the right attitude and they do the job the team needs.

7.) 20 Mar 2019 21:58:48
I like it. Who do you have in mind for them 4 positions?



01 Feb 2019 20:46:08
Any truth in the Sancho rumours? Isn't he another left sided player?


{Ed025's Note - i cant see it to be honest..

1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:55:59
Ole name checked him in a recent press conference.

2.) 02 Feb 2019 09:52:47
He's good young English talent. If we're going back to our traditions and identify then he's going to be linked.

3.) 02 Feb 2019 10:28:50
He prefers to play on the left, yet he has played on the right for Dortmund all season bar a few minutes.

He looks like he is going to be one hell of a player, I certainly wouldn't be upset if we signed him.

That said in Chong, Gomes and Greenwood we have three potentially world class forwards. Whether they can step up and realise that potential is another thing.

{Ed004's Note - He would be the perfect upgrade for the role Lingard has been playing recently}

4.) 03 Feb 2019 09:26:57
I don’t think Sancho has done anything to prove he can replace Lingard yet. Jesse gets a bad rap - he’s pretty fundamental to how the team currently line up and operate.

5.) 03 Feb 2019 14:05:45
Completely different type of player to Jesse, I’d say off the ball jesse is better at finding space etc. But when it comes to 1v1s sancho is better.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 18:01:58
Don’t get me wrong - would be a very cheeky signing indeed.

7.) 05 Feb 2019 13:38:27
Would stay away from Sancho as our history with Dortmund players isn't that great :P.

8.) 06 Feb 2019 06:28:38
Sancho an upgrade on Jessie? Really ed?

{Ed004's Note - Even if he isnt currently he has a far higher ceiling than Lingard}

9.) 08 Feb 2019 20:05:15
He's have to do be achieving that on a much regular basis. I'm not sure he has that. Jessie has always consistently performed for us.



09 Jan 2019 10:57:40
Marca running with us to sign Manolas and Carrasco apparently close - can be play off the right hand side or is he yet another left winger? Great prospect if true.


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath - there are talks ongoing with another club about Carrasco but there are some finantial difficulties to address first.}

1.) 09 Jan 2019 14:51:58
Thanks Ed. Definitely a player wasted in china.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 21:52:44
Supposedly he's going to Arsenal. Which would be a relief.

3.) 10 Jan 2019 18:13:25
Yannick Carrasco the player who left Spain for China for the money. i don't think that's the type of mentality we need. Already got a mercenery called Alexis.



19 Dec 2018 18:11:21
Ed, with Mourinho now gone are you able to disclose please the list of club targets for January?


{Ed002's Note - The club will not look to any targets that were wanted by Mr Mourinho any longer. They will look to as far as is possible shore up transfers until a new coach is appointed and may opt to take a couple of "club" targets - if space can be made in the squad. If players do not move on, there is no space. If a couple were to leave I would not be surprised to see if the club could get a good deal on a couple of players Mr Mourinho rejected just to appease the supporters and keep them onside. There have been a couple of players proposed to Mr Mourinho where he said no and the club still spoke to their clubs - I am sure it would not bother OGS to have one or two replacements on that basis, but efforts are still being made to move Pogba to another club and I suspect if their were a way out for Sanchez it would suit everyone - but it needs Felicevich to find a solution. The CB problem may well have been solved by the club who, against what Mr Mourinho wanted, gave Chris Smalling a new contract. One or two will likely still leave, Darian and Rojo might be good examples, but do they need replacing right away? There will be efforts to get Herrera to nail down his future at the club, I have no feeling what he will want to do. Martial will be another looking for an out without vast sums being given to him.}

1.) 19 Dec 2018 20:19:17
I’m still not convinced we would be much worse off without Sanchez and Martial. We are over stocked in the left forward position and have no balance in the side whatsoever. Pogba would be missed, but only the Pogba that gets out of the right side of the bed in a morning.

2.) 19 Dec 2018 20:02:07
That’s great, thanks Ed.

Are you able to disclose any names?

{Ed002's Note - Douglas Costa is a player the club are looking to buy on the cheap that the coach did not want.}

3.) 19 Dec 2018 21:46:59
Hi Ed,

What does „on the cheap“ mean?
Can’t be the rumourEd 75 million pounds, right?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Think of a lot less.}

4.) 19 Dec 2018 21:59:30
Regardless of who’s coming in, they should go all out for Koulibaly from Napoli.

5.) 19 Dec 2018 23:32:53
Do you mean with smalling getting a new deal the club don't see us needing a new cb? Or am i reading it wrong?

6.) 20 Dec 2018 00:28:53
I can't think of a single transfer Jose got right.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 01:09:58

You’re reading it wrong.

8.) 20 Dec 2018 04:58:08
Jred, early days yet but I think Dalot could be one he got right.

9.) 20 Dec 2018 05:40:21
This club is an incompetent as they come, which genius thought giving Smalling a new contract was a good idea. You need to get rid of players like smalling not keep them you idiots, also no wonder Mourinho did not sign a rw, Douglas Costa as if we don't have enough primadonnas as it is.

10.) 20 Dec 2018 08:01:42
Douglas Costa would be tremendous. Can’t see us getting Koulibaly.

11.) 20 Dec 2018 08:10:42
Douglas Costa would be tremendous. Can’t see us getting Koulibaly. A January of Costa, Militao and Lorenzo Pellegrini would be superb - unless other central midfielders are more likely.

12.) 20 Dec 2018 05:50:33

Was Douglas Costa a signing of the board or was he recommended by Mr. Mourinho, because I think we're getting (if we get) the wrong guy here. We don't another player with attitude issues and throws his toys at almost everything. Right?

{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho did not want Costa yet the club still approached Juventus.}

13.) 20 Dec 2018 11:14:29
So Jose was right in not wanting Smalling to get a new contract, not wanting Costa and also wanting Pjanic. Hmmmm.

{Ed002's Note - But the club never let him join their gang. It was a ba d move to appoint Mr Mourinho and a bad move for him to accept. He never sawMU as a progressive club that will adapt to what he thinks they need. He didn't like being in Manchester and there are those there who saw a blue tinge surrounding him. There was a major error in taking on Ibrahimovich - it is disruptive with the kids (although one specific issue has been overcome) and he wanted to move elsewhere. Mkhitaryan was a disaster waiting to happen. Pogba's career belongs in Spain or Italy - certainly not Manchester.

14.) 20 Dec 2018 15:26:20
Certainly a lot of issues Ed, not just with the manager. It stems from incompetent decision makers. Thanks for all your inputs.

15.) 21 Dec 2018 11:06:22
And by blue tinge, you mean Chelsea right Ed? Or is that just me misinterpreting your clever use of words?

Seeing as you seem to be very much in the know regarding Mourinho, and considering the apparent decent relationship that he still, to this day, have with Roman, could you foresee a return to Stamford Bridge in the future? Many thanks, and Happy Holidays to you.

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest at all in answering questions about Chelsea.}

16.) 22 Dec 2018 01:09:30
Thank you Ed 002!



21 Nov 2018 17:32:32
Evening Ed,

You've mentioned that Mourinho wants to remould the squad and may be afforded the funds to do so. Are you aware of how radical his changes are expected to be? I could quite easily foresee a clear out of at least 10 players with half a dozen coming in.


1.) 21 Nov 2018 18:36:12
Mourinho has bought 11 players, and allowed another 14 to leave. Two of which were his own signings (Zlatan and Mkhitaryan) . This process has cost the club around 400m so far.

Yet Mourinho wants to sell or release as many as another 10 players and replace them.

Seriously, what the hell. Who takes a job then says he wants to sell 99% of the squad and replace 24 players with 24 new 30-80m signings in order to be successful? If we worked that out at an average of 50m per signing he would want the club to spend over 1.2 billion on new players.

Hell I could win the league if you give me a billion pounds to spend on new players.

2.) 21 Nov 2018 18:56:45
Shappy the answer to the question at the top of paragraph 3 is pep.

3.) 21 Nov 2018 21:02:02

Were they all Mourinho’s signings? I refer you to Ed’s post lower down. “he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as they have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option”.

You can keep blaming the manager for everything, but have to ignore what the Ed tells you.

4.) 21 Nov 2018 21:27:24
Lets face it we've got players signed by 4 different managers and some of those are either aging and need replacing, have injury/ fitness issues and are unreliable or just aren't good enough. We all know who they are and its time they were moved on.

5.) 21 Nov 2018 21:33:14
Not sure jose makes all the signings Shappy. Pogba for example was a club signing, he was coming with or without Jose being here.

6.) 21 Nov 2018 21:48:44
FZZ, Jose wanted Pogba while at Chelsea. So I'm sure he wasn't too upset with the signing.

Suddenly half the signings aren't Jose's. Who do people think is making the decisions on who to sign if not the manager?

Are Fellaini and Mata really Moyes signings?

Did LvG really sign a single player?

The manager wants a certain type of player for a specific role within the squad. He tasks the scouts to find them. They compile a list, the scouting team and the management team discuss which ones to pursue, the rest is down to the money people.

If a player is signed Jose has given it the okay. Therefore, it's his signing ultimately.

7.) 21 Nov 2018 22:30:20

We get it, you want to hang, draw and quarter Mourinho

I think the real question is who is making the decisions because for a manager with such experience it is hard to see why some have been signed, unless they are not his signings. However, you won’t be happy until Jose has been dismissed, so they all have to be his signings to fit the prosecution evidence at his trial

By the way it is hard to argue that Fellaini was not a Moyes signing given where he came from, how and why.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 00:40:36
Lvg didn’t buy Herrera shaw di Maria or falcao snappy if that helps.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 12:31:39
Can't have it both ways shappy. Can't say every signing is 100% on Jose an say moyes an van gaal weren't responsible for theirs.

10.) 22 Nov 2018 13:08:53
That's the point Mort, I'm saying that everyone slated BOTH Moyes and LvG for their poor signings. No one ever said they weren't responsible for their signings.

Yet now people want to make excuses for why after spending 400m on new players it's not Mourinho's fault.

Suddenly he didn't pick the players we signed during his time as manager. He isn't to blame. In fact every signing that has been a success was his signing and every one that has failed to live up to expectations are club signings made by some dark and shadowy mysterious person. But definitely not Jose.

It's ridiculous, the double standards.

The same people who wanted Moyes and LvG sacked and used their poor signings as a stick to beat them with refuse to blame any of our recent poor signings on our current manager.

11.) 22 Nov 2018 13:26:38

One question for you.

Have those signings been a failure due to their own attitude or because of their ability?

I can clearly see all of them have the talent and it is mainly due to their attitudetfor failing at United.

12.) 22 Nov 2018 13:43:06
Cant see the maths Shappy tbh- out of the players signed since he came: 11 in yes but Zlatan came on a free miki in the deal for sanchez but out of the players he sold I can't work out the 14 unless you count the undisclosed younguns or the frees like valdes and rooney? Out of the sales, mcnair and love to sunderland - they ain't good enough for them!
Schneiderlin and januzai not exactluy world beaters, blind =squad player not getting game time johnstone prob 3rd choice. there's only Depay (in an inferior frech league), Zlatan (37 / 38) and Miki ok for arsenal but its obvious why they were sold. The retained buys atm are of a better if not the standard we want, and also would attract more value in sales. So both areas are covered in improvement and money; not the level we have been used to but other teams have improved massively and we can't have all the sweets. Club problems that affect results run deeper than the next transfer window or two being able to sort them out and although JM is supposedly steering the ship he cannot be held responsible for all that happens at the club.

13.) 22 Nov 2018 14:35:41
People want to beat Moyes and LVG with poor signings stick Shappy because nobody knew about the transfer policy at that point. Many were led to believe that the managers were in charge of the spending not the board.

Now people have come to the realisation about the situation they have changed their mind is that ok?

14.) 22 Nov 2018 15:06:35
Is right people want to make excuses after excuse for Jose. Yet slated moyes and lvg for the same things?

15.) 22 Nov 2018 15:54:01
Singh, signings fail for all sorts of different reasons. And yes a certain amount of blame always has to be placed on the player.

However, none of the players we have signed we're playing poorly for their previous teams, in fact they were playing well. That's why we signed them.

So why don't they play well for us? Is it a case of their poor attitude? Maybe, but then why didn't that attitude stop them playing well for their previous club? Why does their poor attitude only effect their form for Manchester United and not either their previous club or their international team?

Many of the players we slate every week for not playing well, go off and play well for their national side. Pogba played a key role in his country winning the world cup. So why can't he play like that for us?

Is it the tactics? Or is our manager unable to get the most out of him?

{Ed025's Note - thats a fair point shappy..

16.) 22 Nov 2018 16:20:13
FZZ, When did the club release a statement declaring the manager is no longer responsible for signings?

Isn't it just speculation? The Ed's have said that there are several people involved in recruitment, just like any large organisation. That the manager and his team of assistants, Ed Woodward and the scouting team work together to draw up a list of targets based on the managers wishes.

This is the same for every club, more or less world wide, and has been for many many many years. Ultimately though the buck stops with the manager.

Jose stated he wanted a CB, so the club agreed to sign Bailey with Joses blessing. Jose wanted a second CB, he had friends back in Portugal who told him Lindelof was a great player in the making, he sent his scouts who agreed, the club then purchased Lindelof. The second CB signed by/ for Mourinho.

Yet Smalling is still his go to first choice, why because Mourinho is unable to get the best out of Bailey and Lindelof.

17.) 22 Nov 2018 16:36:04
I think I said at the time van gaal wasn't responsible for most of his signings. I said along he didn't sign di Maria and falcao. That was on woody. Also most on here accepted Shaw and Herrera were moyes signings. As for moyes he wasn't backed and made one good and one bad signing.

I'm not making excuses for Jose. He has caused a lot of problems. But regards signings we don't know which are his and which aren't. Pogba again has woody all over it. No Jose wasn't going to turn down a player of his talent and the personality clash has led to issues.

If/ when Jose goes he needs to be followed by woody.

18.) 22 Nov 2018 17:00:20
Mort you think Shaw and Herrera were moyes signings?

Do you think Woodward scouts and identifies players?

19.) 22 Nov 2018 17:17:34
Moyes tried to sign Herrera and was linked with Shaw all through his tenure. So yeah i'd say they were his. The deals were almost done when moyes went. LvG agreed to complete them. As has been said by shappy the managers putting his list forward its on woody to get them. We've been told woody has a mystery advisor. I think woody also to an extent does identify signings. We know he's a commercial bean counter and we know he's obsessed with marque signings.

20.) 22 Nov 2018 17:59:57
Even tho both players signed after moyes and in Herrera case we had been watching him and linked even befor moyes?
It may be on woody to get them all though a lot of the legal stuff etc is handled by other people

So Herrera and Shaw 2 players signed after moyes are moyes signings but the players signed while Jose is at the club are not Jose signings .
A pogba a player ed has told us Jose wanted at Chelsea and United is a Woodward signing . Ok.

21.) 22 Nov 2018 18:29:47
This just shows how much we need an appropriate manager who can be at the club for the long term. By appropriate I mean a manager who plays progressive, attacking football and develops young players i.e someone who suits the ethos and history of the club.

A manager who entertains us, plays the 'Utd way' and shows us our youth products will get a lot of leeway and patience from the fans even if results are mediocre while he builds his team and implements his ideas.

Chopping and changing negative managers makes no commercial sense and we end up with the dogs dinner we have now which is going to cost a lot of money to sort out. We also lose a lot of support and subsequently sponsorship because who wants to watch boring football from average players?

I can't understand how all this isn't bleedin' obvious to the supposed professional people in the industry who run the club.

22.) 22 Nov 2018 23:25:46

Do you really think Pogba played great for France?

The players playing well at previous clubs -

Bailly - He had like one season in top flight and then we signed him.

Lindelof - He is starting to show form now.

Martial - No body knew who he was and we signed him. Its not like he was pulling trees in Monaco as he only had one season with them i think.

Pogba - Played for Juve but he had the top players like Pirlo and doing the donkey work. He doesn't have that here and that is why he messes up for when he doesn't bother to put a shift in.

Sanchez - He is the only player i'd say i'm pissed about as he should be tearing the league but again he is a cry baby as Ed pointed out Sanchez doesn't want to play on the wings. That is poor attitude in my eyes.

Zlatan - Did really well and was unlucky he got injured and went off.

Mkhitaryan - This was a big gamble and it i think the whole world k ew he has attitude probl3ms and was shifted out.

Fred - Its his first year.

Lukaku - Has played to his potentional and doesn't have bad attitude. I personally don't think he is the type of striker that will win us the league on his own.

So can you explain to me who was really pulling trees at their previous club apart from Sanchez who i think should be doing well.

I know u guys don't like the manager but u got to be fair and give the players the same treatment! .

23.) 23 Nov 2018 00:10:37
So first of bailly was playing very well, started at United very well to be honest but has regressed . But many on the site raving about him

Highly rated by those who know there stuff, currently showing the talent he has

Was a good player for juve was one and is still one of the big name players for France who have just won the world cup

Need I explain

German player of the year doing well at arsenal involved in more goal than any other player from limited starts when we sold him

Scored 16 league goals last season compared to 25 in an average Everton team the previous season and 23 in 21 games from Belgium.

Proud doesn't cut it.

BELIEF, PASSION AND JOY have been restored to this sleeping giant. We are back.

I hope the draw is favourable, top 4, a champions semi final and FA Cup win wouldn't be a bad year.

Ole's core squad is clear :

De Gea, Romero, Dalot, Shaw, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, McTominay, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Lingard, Mata, Rashford, Martial and Lukaku.

The above names have all earned their place in this squad. Garner, Chong, Greenwood and Gomes supplement that. Tuanzebe could come back into the mix too.

I don't expect a mass clear out; but the remaining players are all fair game and I think we would accept offers for them if they come in, Sanchez included. Darmian, Jones, Bailly, Rojo, and Sanchez will all have their price. Andreas and Fred may have done enough after that game.

I can not wait for the day Ole gets the job and can formally build for next year. I can see a step change in our transfer policy. Players under 25 that can be moulded and peak with us. I'm excited by the rumours, De Ligt and Joao Felix being the main two.


1.) 07 Mar 2019 18:16:04
we need to sign up dave and herrera on new contracts,

seems like its taking an age to get them to sign.

2.) 07 Mar 2019 18:16:09
I want to plead Bailly's cause. He struggled last night, but I think he has a lot of talent, and can shine if he can improve like many others have.

{Ed025's Note - have you seen him play daniel?...hes bloody useless..

3.) 07 Mar 2019 18:47:49
No effort, no application and reckless. Bailly should be one of the first to go.

4.) 07 Mar 2019 18:54:45
He reminds me of Rafael, very impulsive, dives in and often gets left for dead. I’m not sure he will make it with us.

5.) 07 Mar 2019 19:31:26
I really thought he would but like with sanchez my patience is exhausted.

6.) 07 Mar 2019 19:57:04
Yeah he's too rash. I'm not convinced either.

7.) 07 Mar 2019 21:20:25
I will stick by Bailly. I know he has a streak of rashness, but he has the tools. He is quick, aggressive, and has more ability on the ball than the rest of the backs besides Lindelof. I will keep faith in him, and that Ole can bring out the best in him.

{Ed025's Note - its all about opinions mate..

8.) 08 Mar 2019 06:18:00
Bailey is low on confidence and is trying to do more than he should. He was 1 of our best performers in the 1st season and now suddenly people want to get rid of him. If we have been patient enough with Smalling and Jones then I think we should give Bailey some more time to prove himself. He is quick, strong and can easily bring the ball forward. His dribbling is really very good for a defender. The only problem is that he gets carried on. Due to this he can leave his position and get sucked out of position just running behind the players with the ball. It's just that aspect of his game that he needs to work on.
I've said it before that I would like to see him in a defensive mid position against some smaller team where we want to give some rest to Matic. In a game where we might dominate possession and the opposition tries to hit us on the counter. For these games Bailey will be good as he is quick and strong, he will be much more suited than Matic who is not as fast to catch the opposition.



03 Mar 2019 18:11:20
Is it me or are Derby games just bore fests these days? The heat is too much for either team to lose so they've turned in to low scoring timid matches.


1.) 03 Mar 2019 18:15:36
They are always so over hyped fresh. Usually the emotions gets the better of the players and the managers would rather draw than lose. I actually think the most entertaining derby is the north London derby. Usually packed with controversy and goals.

Same, big effort, the fans was brilliant too.

Well done to them today, was impressed with the battling mentality. even mike smalling could actually have secured a win at the end.



19 Feb 2019 07:09:26
What a way to brighten up a Monday! Great win and the tactical know how that Ole and the team are showing is exceptional. Away wins at Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal (conceding only one goal) is phenomenal. 11 wins, 1 draw and 1 European defeat isn't too shabby either. We know we aren't at the level required yet for Europe, but we are doing the business domestically and I could see us finishing the year with top 4 and an FA Cup trophy.

For me, he's done enough to get the job.

Why decide now? Anything could happen between now and the end of the season. Olé deserves to be considered tho, and Ed has a decision to make, that he probably thought he'd never have to.

Apart from the obvious good results, performances and mood around the club Ole has shown what this current squad is capable of achieving.

We all know that we are currently not good enough to win the PL or CL but we can compete just below that level.

If we could obtain new signings at RB, CB, CM and RW/ RM and move on 4-6 from the current squad that aren’t good enough then I believe we can compete.

With the away wins at Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea Ole has shown himself to be tactically very astute. Whether this is purely down to him or more collective amongst Phelan, Carrick and McKenna we don’t really know.
If Ole does get the job full time it will be interesting to see what happens with Phelan as he may also be an important part of this coaching setup.

Hats off to the fans at the game last night you were amazing. For us armchair supporters last night all that we could hear in the second half was you and it was non stop.
Between Ole and the away support Utd have got their pride and dignity back. Just couldn’t imagine this situation back in December.

Pfft, based on the last 11 games we are good enough.

Interesting to read in the papers that Lukaku is wanted in Italy and we could replace him with Dybala. That would certainly suit the way we are playing and would lend itself to a flexible front three of Dybala/ Lingard behind Rashford and Martial.

Im not so sure about Dybala in the EPL . Talented lad but his form is very up and down doesn't really command a spot for juve or the national team .
The EPL is lot more physical a lot quicker not sure it would be a good move for dybala .

{Ed004's Note - I would be interested in a straight swap but I do think Dybala is over rated. Has had a very poor season at Juve. His best position seems to be as a striker and I feel that is where Rashford should be first choice}

I'd just break the bank for mbappe.

Well if we were to be taken over by the sauds, i don't think there would be many transactions between us and psg leahy.

Could you see them going for Aldeweireld as the cheapest option freeing up money for Sancho and others.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

Not sure I’d take any. Maybe Hernandez and maybe Casemiro. The others are on the wrong side of 30.

Interesting, I imagine he would be much better value long term than Koulibaly.


{Ed001's Note - very good on the ball as well. Had that really polished technique that seems to be a hallmark of players coming through their youth academy.}

No effort, no application and reckless. Bailly should be one of the first to go.

I’ll be surprised to see Pogba move on.

Good post.

No point surrendering in the competition every team strives to be in each season.

There’ll be more investment than that I’m sure.

May be a change though, not pursuing household names.


{Ed004's Note - I still expect a rb cb and winger to come in with potentially another midfielder or left back signing as well}

I think realistically we see Darmian, Valencia, Rojo and Pereira leave. The others will very likely stay, and to be honest we need a big squad.

I think a right back, centre half, central midfielder and a versatile forward will be the targets.

Likely to be Koulibaly for the centre back place, a right back hasn’t been linked but I’m sure one is lined up. Versatile forward could be Costa unless we look within the league to someone like Brooks. Central midfield links have also been quiet.
