Great Sharkopod Ed. always enjoy them to be honest.

You teased several times about the coach (Jose) being at United or not. I'm assuming that's still all up in the air?

Thanks again, keep up the great work!


{Ed002's Note - Probably.}

1.) 16 Nov 2017 18:17:55
The Sharkopod is already out? I don't see it.

2.) 16 Nov 2017 19:30:28
Doesn't sound like there is much happening this Jan.
Interest moved on from dybala and Griezmann, could move for lewandowski in the summer to replace ibra and his outrageous wage .
Interest in a top end cb and savic again more likely summer if Jose still here.

3.) 16 Nov 2017 19:37:49
Ed can we have the link to the sharkopod posted here please.

{Ed033's Note -

Man Utd Sharkopod

4.) 16 Nov 2017 19:53:50
Jan - Try for Rose and maybe CM if Fellaini goes, maybe Ozil

Summer - Lewandoski, David and a CB (Umtiti or Upa Meccano? )

5.) 16 Nov 2017 20:38:14
Dayot Upamecano and if any there are to be any jan signings I thought it seemed more likely to be Rose and Fabregas.

6.) 16 Nov 2017 21:41:10
Can't see any coming in. More likely see players leave than anything. Only realistic one could be Fabergas. Going to have to wait to summer to see all the big names come in.

7.) 16 Nov 2017 21:43:18
I really can't see spurs letting rose go on jan. If rose is keeping his head down and not upsetting the camp I can see no reason for them to strengthen a rival for the remainder of the season.
Don't see much else on the horizon unless fellaini goes in Jan.
Not the best time to do business but sometimes a deal can be done that gives the squad a lift. I will live in hope for a left back.

8.) 17 Nov 2017 08:27:04
A car salesman a few months ago Claire store be one of Roses best mates whilst growing up, he did have pictures of the two of them playing golf at Forest pines on his phone.
He said tha Rose wanted to move to OT but Spurs were predictably playing hard ball. Make of it what you want but he s either a crazy stalker or telling the truth lol.

9.) 17 Nov 2017 11:55:57
Love those sort of rumours madhatter 🙂.



13 Jul 2017 00:58:57
I've read a few rumours Barcelona have bid for Semedo from Benfica. Nothing certain of course but I was quietly hoping that we'd sign him. I know you're a big fan as well Ed.


{Ed004's Note - I've seen them reports as well unfortunately. He's exactly what they need so it makes sense. I'm just hoping they continue to push for Bellerin}

1.) 13 Jul 2017 20:49:18
Apparently Semedo will be having a medical with Barcelona tomorrow so he's one to scratch off the list

I think Fabinho will happen there is also Serge Aurier since PSG have signed Dani Alves I sure he was mentioned on the sharkopod.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Aurier is the Plan C, so now I would suggest the firm target.}

2.) 13 Jul 2017 21:10:26
Will be interesting to see dave. Especially with the Ed saying Jose sees fabinho as a rb more than a cm, with the apparent block put on the matic deal maybe fabinho solves 2 problems.

{Ed004's Note - Gutted that we won't be signing Semedo I think everyone on here knows I wanted him however, Aurier isn't a bad back up option. Strong, quick and powerful. Has a good cross on him he just seems to lack discipline}

3.) 13 Jul 2017 21:20:03
tom/ ed004

Do you believe Chelsea would block a potential move for Matic over the Lukaku ordeal seems very petty if true I believe its media bull.

Haven't seen much of Aurier at all so couldn't pass judgment you've just got to trust the manager.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think Chelsea would block a move tbh. If the player wants to go there would be no point keeping him}

4.) 13 Jul 2017 21:44:02
Can't blame the of for wanting to get and play for Barca. Great move for club and player.

Suppose Darmian stays if we don't land any of our full back targets? Tonight he looked good towards the end of the season.

I think right forward and left back are far more urgent concerns for now.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 21:51:31
You know i was with you on this one ed04. Semedo would have been one of my fist signings so i too am gutted. Like you say Aurier is not a bad backup. The only issue would be that both he and baily would be away together for the African Cup of Nations.

{Ed004's Note - I didn't even consider that. Aurier is probably currently the better player but Semedo has a far higher ceiling.}

6.) 14 Jul 2017 06:05:34
Fergie very rarely signed players from Africa because of the timing of the Africa Cup of Nations.



23 Jan 2016 08:31:31

Does anyone know much about Rentaro Sanches? I've seen some YouTube clips but that's the extent of my knowledge. I also know he's a midfielder but which side does he play? Also do we think there's any genuine interest from Utd or is it paper talk?

Thought I'd ask as the search had no results. Cheers.


1.) 23 Jan 2016 12:22:43
Well he's a pretty short midfielder, can play centrally but think he's made for the number 10 role just off the striker ideally. Can play on both wings if needed but not natural there (right footed so LVG would obviously play him on the left), good vision and seems to make decent decisions given his age and inexperience. It's his first season in the senior team so has only played a handful of games, seems to have great talent but whether it's genuine realistic potential or not is still up for debate for me personally

How high is the interest? I'm not sure. We were there to watch Guedes and/ or Eliseu but rumour is he caught the eye. Demitri Mitchell and him had a moment on instagram which is where the rumour originated in the media, right before Mitchell deleted the post, but he has been watched

Potential for it to happen but a lot depends on price is guess as they're looking for a Martial type deal it seems. I'd be doubtful but you never know, we've paid through the nose for potential before now.

2.) 23 Jan 2016 13:23:55
Memphis seemed to make good decisions given his age and inexperience in a different, lower level league but as we've seen that can change when coming to the premier league. This isn't the type of player we should be looking for.

A right sided winger like Berardi would make much more sense. Then a CB, these should be our main concern.

3.) 23 Jan 2016 13:29:03
That's for the info guys, appreciated.

4.) 23 Jan 2016 23:05:51
I have read that he is more a deep-lying playmaker playing in a Carrick position. I havnt seen him play however. Hope this helps.

5.) 24 Jan 2016 21:04:29
Deep lying midfieder fron what I've seen breaks it up gets stuck in but also has the ability to break with pace. A fantastic prospect at only 18.

6.) 25 Jan 2016 11:20:23
He is quick, strong, tenacious and technically sound. He could play in any position in midfield or even on the wing.

But he is young, and far from ready to play for a top club. He will need to be given time to find his position and develop this skills before he is ready to move to a top team.

He is best of stay in Portugal for another 2-3 years. Even then he would only be 20-21 and have a long career ahead of him. Too many players are given the chance too soon amdnthis results in them never quite fullfilling their potential.



31 Aug 2015 18:07:12
It's all done apparently. De Gea to Real and Navas to United



1.) 31 Aug 2015 18:39:41

2.) 31 Aug 2015 18:55:19
I think the writing was on the wall for DDG as soon as LVG arrived? LVG JUST didn't LIKE HIM! Shame really as I think he was pushed out and we all now know what LVG can be like. an a*se! Shame Sir Alex couldn't stay longer to get DDG to sign?


3.) 31 Aug 2015 19:23:42
Pushed out? Come on ronnie it was well documented that he always wanted the real Madrid move. Fair play to him, he served us tremendously well and it was always his plan to move home.

Man utd left it late, maybe a mess but te fact is they had a fee of 30mil in mind and Real did not want to pay it until now. I think it's a good deal, good money for a player with one year left and a very good keeper in return.

I do admire Ed and the club standing up to the might of Real and holding out for a better fee. God knows they have taken some good players off us in the past for next to nothing.

Let's hope we can now sort out another forward player, maybe through in a CB for good measure. I think we would all be much happier then

4.) 31 Aug 2015 19:31:41
Haha we are blaming de gea wanting to go home on LVG now are we? Bloody hell.



31 Aug 2015 17:07:00
I read an ed say on another page that Mario Gotze has. 37million Euro release clause, any interest in him ed? Thanks in advance


{Ed004's Note - Don't think so}

1.) 31 Aug 2015 17:21:13
I believe that was the release clause he had at Dortmund, was it not?

2.) 31 Aug 2015 17:37:56
Perhaps I misunderstood, cheers

A fairly definitive interview from Bale there, looks likely he might be moving. But where?

Just a random prediction, Bale - Pogba swap?


1.) 26 May 2018 21:54:59
No chance.

Bales value has prob just gone up 20 million

But pogba isn't at his peak yet.

2.) 26 May 2018 21:59:10
No thankyou.

3.) 26 May 2018 22:03:25
Bale De Gea more likely.

4.) 26 May 2018 22:12:16
I think Poch might push for him - wildcard I know money wise for spurs but i reckon Bale would fancy it.

5.) 26 May 2018 22:37:24
^ no chance, he's on a huge amount and won't come down to Spurs salary. Also he will be £70m+.

6.) 26 May 2018 22:53:44
Always thought he would play for Utd at some point. I'd have him here in a heart beat. Not my money, and he's not stunting the development of any of our young players in the RW position. Guy is still absolute class.



13 Mar 2018 21:48:32
United doing United things again (post fergy) . considering both legs / performances / results I place the blame firmly at Jose 'Negative' Mouriniho's door.




14 Jan 2018 14:55:27
Something doesn't quite add up for me with the Sanchez story and here's why.

On the last day of the summer transfer window City offered 60 mil approx for Sanchez and would have accounted for wages etc. My question is, since that bid they have signed nor released any one of any significance so how come now they cannot afford the wages or transfer fee when they could previously? Hopefully I've articulated that well enough for you guys to understand. I'd be interested to know what you think?

Also, I known Sanchez won't be cup tied for us (champions league) can I assume tht should Miki be involved in any deal to arsenal that he won't be cup tied either (Europa league)?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anyone saying they cannot afford the transfer fee or wages. Manchester City has a wage issue the extent of which became evident in November. They have given a commitment to fix it and will get a warning or a reprimand - they already know that.

And MH could represent Arsenal if he were to move.}

1.) 14 Jan 2018 15:34:10
That makes sense thanks Ed appreciate the reply.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, you are welcome.}

2.) 14 Jan 2018 19:14:16
Ed are Arsenal interested in miki? And likewise is miki interested in going there?

{Ed002's Note - Henrikh Mkhitaryan is available to be offered to them and perhaps they will be interested. It won't be first pick for him, but perhaps he will be interested.}



27 Dec 2017 03:37:36
Does anybody else think Lukaku's touch is not to dissimilar to when you bounce a rugby ball? On occasion it goes where you (he) intended, but more often than not it pings off in a random direction!


1.) 27 Dec 2017 04:35:59
He has a head like a 50p piece and feet made of 20p pieces!

2.) 27 Dec 2017 08:58:13
It should like trying to watch an Octopus control a ball.

3.) 27 Dec 2017 09:46:40
"He's not a player that participates a lot in the build-up, "

Mourinhos comments on lukaku when we signed him, he wanted a killer in front of goal and that's what lukaku has been, can't remember too many times he's missed an abvious goal scoring oppurtunity a la martial, lingard and rashford against leicester.

Hes averaging a goal every two games in the league which although not on the same level as kane is still very much acceptable.

Lukaku is one of the few player where everyone always points out his weaknesses before acknowledging his strengths and he's been treated awfully by our fanbase from songs about how big his package is and booing him at old trafford. Fans should probably reign it in a bit and actually start supporting him.

4.) 27 Dec 2017 10:09:44
The problem with Lukaku is that all this build up play etc isn’t his game, he’s clinical in the box, he does his damage there. He will score plenty of goals if he stays in the box. But the way we play it doesn’t suit him, I think if we had better delivery then lukaku would be brilliant. We have far too many individuals in this team who want to do everything themselves i.e Rashford, martial, Pogba etc.

5.) 27 Dec 2017 10:52:36
Rich man's Emile Heskey.

6.) 27 Dec 2017 12:14:24
Good post that pal.

7.) 27 Dec 2017 12:55:29
Lukaku has been very good in the build up play.

He has laid on some great passes and cross.

Lots of players take a bad first touch, Rashford does it a fair few times (a lot of fast players do) .

Lukaku is in his first season and is doing fine. The last few games have been down to defence conceding stupid goals from City to Burnley.

But let’s all jump on Lukaku - getting like the Liverpool page here.

8.) 27 Dec 2017 13:42:53
Utd Road totally agree with you. There has been a huge improvement in his link up play. It's not his fault that for example against Burnley he didn't get a pass when in great positions to score. He is not the reason we are going through a bad patch. At the start of the season he was scoring almost every game because he got the right service. Lads be fair.

9.) 27 Dec 2017 16:20:35
Good post DSG.
I think of the summer signings matic and lukaku have both done well. Lindelof has shown good character and looks like he can recover in time from a desperste start to his united career.
Sure lukaku needs to get even better especially against the big teams. But in those games he has lived of very meagre scraps.
I'm not one that thinks he should be beating 3 men on his own and scoring you can't critisise him for not doing that as it's not his game. When he gets the service that play to his strengths he scores goals.

I admire the fact he is obviously working on the weaker parts of his game and I think lately he has created well for others.

10.) 27 Dec 2017 18:12:43
Great post DSG. Lukaku is a killer in front of goal but we are seeing too much of him dropping outside of the box at the minute, probably down to frustration at not getting enough service.

But hat's off, he works incredibly hard.



23 Dec 2017 21:44:15
I text a friend minutes before the equaliser and said we can have no complaints if they draw level here, we should be gone into the distance by now and then, sure enough!

Merry Christmas all,

As with 90% of our performances this season we’ve witnessed tripe again! It frustrates me that the occasional city / palace performances happen and paper over all the Sevilla / Newcastle / West Brom cracks! I really don’t have an issue with loosing or drawing a match and I don’t really care who it’s against, it’s the nature of the performance and the attitude that really gets me. Pathetic result!

Why has Raiola just hung his client out to dry? Hypothetically speaking if Miki stays I don't think it’s beyond the realms of possibility that some fans will resent or hold it against him? I can’t see how saying united getting Sanchez depends on Miki moving helps if the later decides to stay? It will simply fracture an already weakening relationship between Miki and the club/ fans. Personally I feel he has an ulterior motive here although I’m not completely sure what that is.


{Ed002's Note - No he hasn't. You don't see the bigger picture and another option he has.}
