Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Ed's do you any info on the Fred transfer? Did we end up signing him?

Enjoy the game tonight all.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously he won't be joining before the end of the month.}

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Interesting reports starting to appear, personally the Arnautovic rumours I find ridiculous but I hope Willian happens in terms of where experience can be added. Fred would also be an excellent signing IMO. At CB I wonder if we can expect to see someone coming in, what are people's thoughts on that position specifically?
Ed is there interest in Arnautovic from United or is this the media being thrown a bone?

Hope everyone has an excellent Summer (when it arrives) .

KingGiggsy

{Ed004's Note - There is interest in centre backs. Ed2 a few months ago mentioned Umtitti and Upamecano as targets and most recently Alderwerield is gaining a lot of attention. I disagree with William as I feel we need better quality. Would like Fred to sign and if there's any truth in thiago being available we should be all over that Lastly, I can't see Arnautovic happening at all}


1.) 31 May 2018 23:49:44
Rather take a punt on bringing Memphis back than sign Arnautovic.


2.) 01 Jun 2018 08:47:05
Thanks for the reply Ed - Toby is the best CB in the league IMO but we have barely seen him play this year. Would be a fantastic signing. We’ll have to agree to disagree with Willian mate, I’m a huge fan. Thiago would be an incredible signing, top top player.

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Norwood has spoken, 48 hours time.

Isn’t this the third 48hrs this week? :D.


2.) 20 Jan 2018 21:12:12
Spenno,

This one is right though, welcome Alexis.

Merry Christmas to all, thanks to the Eds as always for the site.
Brilliant transfer rumour circulating this morning regarding Eden Hazard, Eds can you shed any further light on this one yet?

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Manchester United to Hazard's agent and I can confirm that there has been no approach to Chelsea about the player from Manchester United.}


1.) 20 Dec 2017 11:36:24
I think as the window opens it is good to always use this method before asking the Ed’s questions.

Does it sound too good to be true?

Yes - then it isn’t true, don’t bother asking.

No - it’s still probably not true, but there may be a small chance so worth asking.


2.) 20 Dec 2017 16:43:09
I thought Hazard and Señor José didn't get along?


3.) 21 Dec 2017 00:33:11
Let's be realistic why on earth would Chelsea sell their best player to an English rival its not like they need the money so it's not going to happen. Please think it through and don't waste Eds time and goodwill.


4.) 21 Dec 2017 12:38:06
People said Jose and Matic fell out. Doubt they'd make the mistake in selling to us again though.


5.) 21 Dec 2017 17:51:43
Selling Matic wasn't a mistake. Neither was Mata's sale. Selling Eden would be a mistake though. But there's no way in hell he's moving to Manchester. If he moves it'll be to Madrid.


6.) 21 Dec 2017 20:40:43
It seems like a mistake pal. You finished top last season. What position you going to finish this one?


7.) 22 Dec 2017 06:33:52
Probably top 4. At least we should get top 4. But not winning the league won't be because we sold Matic. It'll be because there's a certain team that's gone on an insane run of form. Matic isn't the one we miss.


8.) 22 Dec 2017 14:05:47
When utd played chelsea jose slapped hands with almost every chelsea player coming out of the tunnel except hazard.

Hi all,
Hope everyone is well.
Thanks to the Eds as always.
This is beginning to be Sneijder part two but there are loads of rumours flying around this evening regarding Bale and an imminent bid from United. Ed002 thinks there could still be more to come in this window. Ed has Bale's situation changed at all and is a bid actually going to go in for him?
Cheers.

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - At this point in time I am not aware of his situation changing nor Manchester United making any approach.}

Thanks as always Ed.

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Ed002, with reference to my previous post, I believe despite 'obviously him not signing before the end of the month', we've got him - can you confirm?

Best,

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - Subject to the usual matters, yes.}

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
In terms of the changes, adjustments and do I dare say improvements taking place at United behind the scenes as recently mentioned by JM, are Eds able to offer their view on whether the work JM is doing is of any long term benefit to the club? I know very little about the day to day runnings of a professional football club and even less about the adjustments that could be being made so a view/ bit of info on the matter would be very much appreciated.

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know what you are referring to specifically. Mourinho is responsible for running the first team and can make suggestions about transfers, facilities etc.. The desire for a Director of Football went nowhere as the person the club were interested in had no interest in the club.}

Hi All,
Thanks to th Eds as always.
With the continued rise in transfer fees this window, players such as Mkhitaryan that we signed for €41million are now starting to look like a bargain. Who has been the best bargain in recent years in everyone's opinion?
Cheers.

1.) 25 Aug 2017 16:37:12
Isco to Madrid.


2.) 25 Aug 2017 16:45:19
Hazard to chelsea.

Andy Carrol to Liverpool.

This summer it must be chicarito surely.


5.) 25 Aug 2017 18:22:06
DDG. You won't get the best in the world in any position now for double what we paid.

Gotta say also couthino kooks like a bargin too for what Liverpool paid.

I’m hoping a regular switch to a 3 man midfield will also help improve the number of chances/ number of goals we see.

Hi Ed002,
What you say makes sense, however it was only 6 weeks ago or so that’s JM was saying how he hoped to be at United for many many years. Is it really a case of now the title is looking less likely this season, he is reconsidering his future? Of course we all ‘do have a look at the menu even if we are on a diet’, is it just simply a case of this? I had hoped JM would be with us for certainly another few years yet.
Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I would not pay too much attention to what JM says.}

More of an age issue with him, Ed002 said this months ago, possibly around January. You have to remember he is still a kid, whoever buys him will have to loan him back to Fulham. But, he does look like a talent.

Hi AJH,
Good post, here are my thoughts.
1) Lukaku - he looks over weight to me, even for a big guy. The best ‘version’ of Lukaku I remember was one that ran at defences, held the ball up well, laid the ball off and then ran into space or in behind to receive the ball. He is too static now and that may be José’s influence but I’m more inclined at this stage to suggest he lays off the weights and gets the cardio up.
2) Ibra - for me this situation isn’t unsurprising but I did think keeping him on was the right decision because of his off the pitch influence in terms of confidence. However, I suggested he was kept on along similar lines to Owen was, a kind of pay as you play contract. I still think he will prove useful but not as a first 11 player. He will probably leave at the end of the season.
3) Rashford - I got slated at the beginning of the season for suggesting Rashford went out on loan this year. My suggestion was fuelled by my prediction that his game time would be limited this year under José and although he has featured in games he is rarely getting a full 90 mins. He just needs game time IMO and he looked enthusiastic yesterday. He is our hottest prospect and I’m worried he is not continuing to make a decent rate of progress this year.
4) Pogba - he looks worried to me. Worried about a another injury perhaps but he isn’t anywhere near 100%. Yesterday Mata was dropping off to receive the ball more than he was and that isn’t the Pogba we know. He tried to look frustrated but deliberately IMO, he just didn’t want the ball yesterday.
5) JM - having his worst spell as a manager and has been for several years now. The game has changed again, big question over his head now is can he move the game on again and start dictating the way championships and competitions are won. He looks frustrated to me and potentially running out of ideas. However, we shouldn’t write him off just yet, after all, like a great man once said “Form is temp, class is permanent”, and even h Pugh I don’t like the guy his record speaks for itself.
Happy New Year to everyone.

Is re-signing Ibra really that bad? The impression he has made on the dressing room is evident, I suggested a while back that re-signing him on deal similar to that Owen was given would be a great move. We are playing in 4 competitions this year and I do not believe he will be first choice in either the Prem or CL this year. However, he is a great player to bring on and to have him around the club again for a further 12 months to help build the confidence further is a fantastic prospect. Having another world class, experienced player around the team for a while longer is only a great thing in my eyes.

For me Draxler is not a natural wide player anyway. Whether he was played left or right he wouldn't do the job we're after which is essentially an old school left sided midfielder who stays wide offering a constant option and stretching a back 4. We have more than enough att miss which is what I would categorise Draxler as. I like him as a player but not what we need or better than what we have.
