I've heard from a source very close to Wolves that we have shown an interest in Ruben Neves. Can anyone confirm?

KurtisHaywood

1.) 15 Mar 2018 19:10:24
I’ve only saw it a couple of times in the papers etc. Was very highly thought off at Porto, but lost his way a bit by all accounts hence why he’s at wolves, supposed to have been excellent though.


 

 

19 Jan 2018 08:38:53
Reports linking us to Jean-Michael Seri from Nice. Not a player I can honestly say I've heard much about just wondering if there is any truth in this?

KurtisHaywood

1.) 19 Jan 2018 15:00:50
Milinkovic-Savic next big one for me.


2.) 19 Jan 2018 15:13:51
Reckon a top defensive midfielder more of a priority - MS seems more of a Pogba box to box player. I’d go all out for Weigl.


3.) 19 Jan 2018 15:22:16
For me yes, Milinkovic-Savic would be the next big one for me too!

And maybe a defender? I'd still love us to sign Laporte from Bilbao, maybe Herrera going back?

If I was dreaming, Dybala would join too! 😂.


 

 

05 Jul 2017 01:41:39
Sportsbible reporting Rooney will complete Everton move by the end of the week, any truth as I've also read Giroud is signing?

KurtisHaywood

1.) 05 Jul 2017 06:31:51
I can't see him going until we have adequate depth. Still wouldn't surprise me to see a move for Lukaku as we will no doubt pay more than Chelsea. Morata and Lukaku up front is lethal.


2.) 05 Jul 2017 07:35:07
Roo been withdrawn from pre seaon squad.


3.) 05 Jul 2017 09:41:45
I think we will let him go if the option is there, he got so little game time last year.


 

 

27 May 2017 12:57:46
Few articles going round suggesting that Mourinho tried to "tap up" Justin Kluivert after the game. I don't remember him being mentioned in the Sharkopod could an Ed confirm whether there is interest at all?

KurtisHaywood

{Ed004's Note - I'm not aware of any interest. He is also a very young player so would be better off staying where he is}


1.) 27 May 2017 16:04:00
He spoke to him on the pitch after the game. Nothing in it although there is a clip of it with made up captions which is funny. In that clip he is tapping him up for sure haha.


 

 

20 Nov 2016 16:50:01
I was wondering if any of the Eds could confirm if we have shown any interest in Kasper Dolberg of Ajax?

Looks like a player with a lot of potential.

KurtisHaywood

{Ed002's Note - You will have to wait for the update from me.}


1.) 20 Nov 2016 17:56:45
Definitely a talent.


2.) 20 Nov 2016 17:59:23
Thanks Ed002, shall I keep an eye on the euro pages or this one?

{Ed002's Note - It is probably already on the European pages - if not try the Chelsea page or the Manchester City page.}

Any truth in the rumours that Mike Phelan could be offered the Technical Director role, with Carrick taking his place as assistant manager?

KurtisHaywood

{Ed002's Note - It would be the last laugh.}


1.) 22 Apr 2019 10:27:17
I sincerely hope not. A man whose contacts consist of Sir Alex Ferguson on speed dial 1 to 5, followed by Ole and his local butcher. Also the No.2 that oversaw us playing arguably the most unattractive football of the Fergie years.

Ed is bang on that it would be the last laugh. Please tell me this is not a possibility.


2.) 22 Apr 2019 11:06:15
The club has become a joke.


3.) 22 Apr 2019 11:22:44
Ed, does that mean that there might be truth in it?

{Ed002's Note - It would be exactly what the fans deserve.}


4.) 22 Apr 2019 11:40:13
I agree but do you know if there is truth in it?


5.) 22 Apr 2019 11:45:14
Ed002, what fans are you in about? All of us?

{Ed002's Note - Try not to be so tedious.}


6.) 22 Apr 2019 12:20:16
About a big amount of support mr. seagull. United fans have been quite toxic in recent years.


 

 

03 Aug 2018 21:25:21
Just listened to the Sharkopod, thanks Ed for the great information as always.

One name I didn't hear crop up was Ousmane Dembele. I read an article that the approach for Mina could be a smokescreen for a move for Dembele instead when officials meet. With Barcelona reluctant to sell without replacements, could their serious interest in Willian make him an option?

KurtisHaywood

{Ed002's Note - Probably.}

Alleged £55m bid submitted for Alderweireld. Levy has responded by saying he wants more. what's everyone's thoughts? Would you pay more than £55m for a 29 year old defender.

KurtisHaywood

1.) 10 Jun 2018 15:36:34
No. Not really, due to his fee goes down to £25m next season.


2.) 10 Jun 2018 15:42:11
In todays climate, 55 mil for toby is a steal IMO.


3.) 10 Jun 2018 15:59:48
No and never esp when we already have 5 centre backs 6 if you throw in tuanzebe. Also don't want to spend all summer negotiating with levy. We have made an offer, he has said no, time to move on .
Someone to play wide right a bigger priority imo.


4.) 10 Jun 2018 16:29:22
Toby wpuld be a very good signing for us. We would have 3 definite CBs in bailly, lindelof and toby.

The other CBs, have served us well BUT tbey are not the level we need to progress in the CL for example.


5.) 10 Jun 2018 16:41:29
Those claims are now backed up by Belgian paper Het Laatste which suggests a €79.8million deal could be tied up in the coming days.

A clause in Alderweireld’s deal allows him to leave for just £25m next summer, but Mourinho’s determination to land the player and partner him up with Eric Bailly will see the move go ahead imminently.

Thats a report in belgian media today.


6.) 10 Jun 2018 16:54:07
If Andy Carrol got sold for 35 mil and Bonnuci for 42 mil then Toby for 50 or 60 mil is a steal in todays inflated market.


7.) 10 Jun 2018 17:00:55
If we ge three really good years out of him and he helps make us defensively sound and allows the midfield and attacking players to flourish then it is money well spent. That said I am hesitant about spending that sort of money on a 29 yr old going on 30 Yr old. I would worry that he will have enough pace to keep up with the lightning quick attackers of eg City and Liverpool. I would rather we gave our younger players like Tuanzabe a go first and also Fosu Mensah. If they are not good enough get a top rated 25 or 26 year old.


8.) 10 Jun 2018 17:31:50
Anything over 55m is way too much. But then Toby for me is the best cb in the league. He is the sort of experienced head at the back we need. People will point to his injury record but up until this season he has rarely been injured. He was fit for the business end of last season but wasn’t played due to not signing a new contract. Let’s hope we can get it done.


9.) 10 Jun 2018 17:40:54
He is one of the best CBs in the Prem, in the conversation of the best. We are Tottengam's rivals, we will have to overpay to get him.

He could well be the missing piece of the jigsaw at the back, someone to build the defense around. A player with experience who is a leader.

If Jose has made him number one priority, get it done Woody!


10.) 10 Jun 2018 19:42:41
Thats ridiculous money for a 29yr old. Sorry, i would not want us to get involved at those sort of prices.
And if levy wants martial, then ee should quote him £150m.


11.) 10 Jun 2018 20:26:32
Ridiculous.


12.) 10 Jun 2018 21:51:28
Could do with recouping some money off rojo, blind etc.


13.) 10 Jun 2018 22:42:09
don’t most centre halves come into their prime around 28/ 29 years of age, a little wiser and assured. vida and rio were formidable at that age and bruce and pallister were 35 and 33 before they left us, berg and stam were 29 and 27 when we won the treble.


14.) 10 Jun 2018 23:18:24
Paersonally im not at all worried of his cost. Its not my money. i bought numerous united jerseys over the years. i've been to games. I watch the adverts . i've contributed my hard earned shillings. im a consumer of uniteds memorabilia. If this guy gets four years of good defending (minimal cards, injuries, politics off field etc) its modern costs which will be covered by a sleeve or training jersey deal - or a far east or american tour. My money pays for mortgage, schools, petrol like us all regular joes. after that i want united to come back to dominance.


 

 

04 Jan 2018 21:50:46
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Year! Not a transfer rumour but a question regarding Mourinhos future, I know he has said he is happy to stay but I was just curious to what capacity United would look to extend his contract? Thanks in advance.

KurtisHaywood

{Ed002's Note - I don’t understand the question.}


1.) 04 Jan 2018 22:12:59
Hi ed002, I know you said in your opinion if Mr Mourinho was offered an early exit in the summer he might be inclined to take it. Given his recent media statement regarding wanting to stay/ extend do you still think he wouldn't mind an early exit from his existing deal.

{Ed002's Note - He knows know that the interested sides have other targets. I would not pay any heed to what he says.}


2.) 04 Jan 2018 22:17:05
Thanks for the quick reply. A 4 year loyal reader.


3.) 04 Jan 2018 22:41:21
I say give him the deal and back him. Otherwise we are just playing around. Who else is there right now?


4.) 05 Jan 2018 02:26:31
Surely you earn deals. Has Mourinho earned a new contract, for me - absolutely not. Does he want a new contract, doesn't look like it again to me. He gives off the appearance of a man having promised something many moons ago and now feeling obligated to fulfill it, despite regretting the day he made the oath over an expensive bottle of red.


5.) 05 Jan 2018 07:23:46
Jose seems to be giving off 2 differing signals with his words atm, 1) he wants to stay for many years and 2) he is laying foundations for future managers suggesting he won’t be here long.
I am happy at José and his words of late, they suggest commitment and longer term planning, maybe he has had backing and promises from the board but does he deserve a new deal, it’s a tough one, he has brought us to a point where we are much improved in terms of league position, points, goals than at any time since Fergie left, any other season we would be in a real title fight but this isn’t a regular season, I think we need to step back and say well done pep and city, I said he'd not do it playing that way in the prem, I was very wrong, so I think Jose gets some unfair stick as what more can he do in terms of league position.
The sticking point seems to be the same as over the last 3 managers, they do not play the United way, we see glimpses of it but Jose is to pragmatic to let it play out a full 90 mins, but it begs the question who else is there out there atm?
Isn’t it true we are making strides forward and maybe just maybe sticking not twisting this time and building with more financial backing will be the way for us to get back to the top.
Jose moans but he is a great deflector. I believe he lives in a serviced apartment in the Lowry with a personal chef, a far cry from him living out of a suitcase in a hotel. Jose is the type who needs to feel wanted and valued, I think we should be more grateful for where he has brought us or maybe he will throw his toys out the pram, we knew this trait in him pre signing him.
On the other hand 4/ 5 years since Fergie left and we’ve not seen this united tradition of playing good football and I don’t think we will see this style under Jose, not for long periods anyway.
Fergie was the ideal, bought into our traditions, played the right way and had that abrasive us v them mentality, a mix of Jose and pep perhaps, there is nobody like that now, and unfortunately Jose’s job is to to win and get us back to the top, he’s won trophies and he’s improved us, so I guess he is doing his job well.
It’ll all play out this season/ summer but when push comes to shove I hope we stick by him and he by us and keep some stability at the club backing a proven winner.


6.) 05 Jan 2018 07:56:04
Good post Welsh, I can’t warm to Jose but you lay out the position pretty accurately.


7.) 05 Jan 2018 08:31:33
Totally agree Welsh - this is a freak season and without city being frankly ridiculous we would be challenging for the title which considering where we have been sin SAF left is astounding.


8.) 05 Jan 2018 09:06:14
The point on stability cannot he underestimated. We need crave it as a club and our player recruitment of recent years shows just what a mess we have been. Jose wins things. Back him and enjoy the ride and we might just see some more consistent and enjoyable footy. To be honest, this season has been pretty decent in my opinion and we are travelling in the right direction albeit slowly.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 13:15:57
Just wanting peoples thoughts. I have read a lot about us needing to strenghten the left hand side, but does anyone think the right hand side is greater priority? I personally think Martial + Rashford are stronger than Mata + Lingard.

KurtisHaywood

1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:27:51
Rash played most of last season on the RHS miki can play both sides in fact most can interchange.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 13:28:17
I said before the transfer window opened we needed attacking fullbacks in both left and right side. Shaw may come back stronger but that is an if and velencia for an ex winger does not attack and overlap enough and his delivery ia not the
Best.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 14:05:59
Left side needs strengthing for sure but at left back i think we are ok on that side for attacking options. The right side needs strengthing at full back and only a worldie for me would be better option than mata.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 14:26:48
Transfer window has been average got in two great players matic and lakaku, Lindalof unsure yet hasn't played to be able to judge him. Very disappointed we haven't strengthened RB and LB this window, but greedy but would have liked a proper wide man, but we will have to see what Jose can do with what we have. Sanchez move to city should put them and pep under massive pressure to walk the league which could be good for us.


5.) 31 Aug 2017 14:43:29
Agreed Jamie. I'm delighted with matic and lukaku but we're way short on the left side and wingers. We do not possess a man with a year factor. Sanchez will be ideal but looks City bound. I've already got them as champions, but if Sanchez signs for them then everyone else will be playing for 2nd place.
Our transfer window has been average after all the hype when it opened.


6.) 31 Aug 2017 14:55:17
I reckon there'll be a massive dressing room bust up at some point at city over playing time. Too many attsckers, not enough quality defenders or midfielders. And they can't rely on refs to bail them out every game.


7.) 31 Aug 2017 15:00:49
Mata and Lingard is very weak for a team expecting to win major competitions as starters. Full backs are also.

I also think Rash and Miki look average at best in the RW spot. We had several areas to strengthen, progress is good, but it might have been better if we had a difficult start, playing weaker teams may just have created a false impression. Time will tell.


8.) 31 Aug 2017 15:03:47
City look good but they can only play 11, the game is played on the pitch not paper .

How many people had them winning the league last year?


9.) 31 Aug 2017 15:45:57
Your right beast imo. We hsve only had to start 22 playerz we hsvnt had to use the swiad players. If we have to start the likes of fellaini darmian rojo 20 plus times in the league we can only hope for 3rd or 4th. These guys are ok to fill a gap or to come on for 20 mins but if they have start 20 plus epl games they will be exposed just like they have been for the last few years.
Lets hope we get luck with injuries and we don't have to rely on these guys to start 20 plus games.


10.) 31 Aug 2017 16:15:56
12 not 22 so far.


11.) 31 Aug 2017 16:37:01
Lol worse squad in 20 year .

Not using squad players must be the new theme .
Rash martial Herrera fellaini have all come of the bench so far .
Lindelof can't even make the bench
Young ibra shaw rojo all injured and we still have a strong bench.


12.) 31 Aug 2017 17:29:04
Tell which united squad has performed worse in the epl over last 20 years jred.


13.) 31 Aug 2017 18:30:17
I have City up there as one of the favourites (alongside us hopefully) but I never understand posters who are so sure in their opinions "city will walk the league" or "united 3rd or 4th at best". Its like some people only started watching footy yesterday. This time last year people said City would walk the league but they ended 3rd I think. Conte was about to get sacked but then won the league with the likes of Moses and Cahill starting most games. The season before; Leicester won the league! Perhaps factors such as form, teamwork and tactics are as important as flashy new players? We look in better shape this year with the likes of Pogba, Mikhi, Martial etc etc all performing better so far. Its great to have opinions and strong ones at that - but anyone who thinks they know how the league will look come May is taking a huge leap of faith Imo. Let's see what happens.


14.) 31 Aug 2017 19:02:30
HB i think if the players in the postions where we have weak back up stay fit and available and play 80% of the games we can win the league. In the last few seasons a lot of the back up players like carrick fellaini darmian rojo blind and jessie have had to start too many games and have been 1st team regulars. All are good pros and have had good impacts at times but over a sustained period most are found wanting and are exposed as being not good enough resulting in our worst run of epl finishes for 25 years. I don't see it being much different this season if they are all 1st team regular starters this season like the last few.


15.) 31 Aug 2017 20:25:40
Fair enough ken, that's your opinion and we are not too far apart in all honestly. All I will remind posters is that this league is the most unpredictable out of all the major leagues, by far. Makes it all the more exciting mind!


16.) 31 Aug 2017 23:59:46
I agree with you hb. Any team of 4 or 5 could win the league. I don't see city as run away winners by any means. Spurs have the Wembley issue to contend with pool have klopp handicap and chelsea will habe europe too this season so I think if our key players stay fit we will win the league.

Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Lindelof been starting LCB and been playing well?

I think the issue is finding a RCB to partner him.

I've not always been Pogbas biggest fan at United but if he can play like he did on Boxing Day why would you even want to sell or loan him?

He is easily the best player in the club and on his day and one of the best midfielders in Europe. If Ole can get him playing well, consistent and change his attitude around we should be building a team around him.

Agree with everything you put here! Dalot especially is starting to show some real class and at 19 can only get better.

I seriously hope we sign a new RB in the summer and keep Dalot pushes higher up in that RW role. He can beat players easily and has some defensive frailties that could be excused with a good RB behind him!
