I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.




14 Jul 2017 14:22:01
Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?


{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:23:36
Cheers ed.

Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying £155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With £155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

14.) 03 May 2017 04:23:15
That's why you're Bond. You're absolutely right. 😂😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - A match made in Xenu.}



01 Jul 2016 15:23:25
Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}

1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.

6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.

7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}

8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.

9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?

10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?

12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.

14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.

15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.

16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and £80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.

17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

18.) 02 Jul 2016 01:01:22
Love it RedD

I'm not trying to be a tw41 and ruin the site for everyone, but,

19.) 02 Jul 2016 14:12:41
ED 002 u crack me up! :D.



09 Jun 2016 13:22:03
I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest leahy he had a very poor season for us, it was in stark contrast to the season before when he was arguably our best player, there was talk then of united being interested and after that his form took a terrible dip, that leads me to think that he would be open to a move and especially if it were one of the biggest names like utd, but with moshiri and now koeman at the helm i would think they would try and persuade him to stay mate..

1.) 09 Jun 2016 20:46:18
Cheers ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 09 Jun 2016 22:01:25
Has Koeman been appointed yet?

3.) 10 Jun 2016 00:03:29
African, which team do you support?
You seem to pop up every now and then out of the blue.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 23:13:45
Ed025 if your about, do you think ye will be a force to reckon with next year, with a new manager and some money to spend ed,
I was surprised to see Gibson getting a new contract.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think we would be competitive leahy and be in and around the top 6, its exciting times at goodison with the introduction of moshiri who has big plans for the club and for the first time in a long while lack of money cannot be an excuse. darron getting a 2yr contract shocked me to be honest mate, not just because of his terrible injury record but because of his off-field antics..

Just read the man city social media team put up a verse for valentines they said.
Roses are red Manchester is blue.
But some United fans hit back with a few good ones.
Roses are red
Manchester is too
Where were your fans in 2002

Roses are red
City is too
Only for Arab money
You'd be in league 2

Roses are red
Pizza is great
You didn't exsist
Before 2008.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 11:25:25
Hahahahahhaha, Leahy, u made my morning.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
PSG scored one
But Ronaldo score two.



11 Feb 2018 23:41:50
Smalling didn't win a single tackle in the whole game. I have no more to add on the matter.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 00:40:41
He’s dross Leahy. Has been since the day he set foot in the club. How he’s still there is beyond me.



11 Feb 2018 18:13:08
Newcastle have had their problems, in a regulation battle, but the might tactical genius made them look like barcelona in their hay day. The players should be embarrassed but some of them will go home and have a dance and put it up in Snapchat or whatever stupid social media crap they go on to show off
Now it's time to question Jose and his coaches. wtf is going on we should be beating these teams 10 games out of ten
I just don't know. Liverpool will be ahead of us in the next few weeks.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 18:28:33
People have been saying Liverpool will be ahead of us soon from the start of the season to be fair .
Same Liverpool who have won 2 of there last 5 games?

2.) 11 Feb 2018 18:43:23
Come out of the fog jred.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 18:47:10
Liverpool have just lost their best player. We have just signed a better one. I think this is the only way we can stay ahead of teams like Liverpool, buy, buy, buy! If we can't buy then, deny, deny, deny.

Spurs and Liverpool seem to have a plan and look good most times I watch them, as for City - they are the benchmark and show us up for what we really are - the fact that most fans won't even reference City and if they do it's to excuse what we are doing, should tell us everything.

Why aren't we doing what City are doing to teams, it's not good enough to say they are breaking records? The rubbish we turn out each week is too much for me now. The fact we have just extended the life of this 'can' we keep booting down the road is too infuriating. I'm sick of the waste and BS excuses.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 18:54:19
Which fog Leahy? Been reading on here all season what a great team the scouse are .
Got beat of Swansea the other week knocked out fa cup by West Brom.
Behind us in the league still like they have been all season .

But hey great team.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 19:58:19
Not a great team jred. Not up to much at the back.
But if we played them the master technician would sit back and invite them on and they aren't bad going forward, and we seem to be going backwards.

6.) 11 Feb 2018 19:58:44
Like it or not the table doesn't lie, halfway through a season will only tell you how teams have played so far.

So at this point of the season regardless of how you might feel we have played we have been the second best side in the league. If that is where we finish this season the we will have proven ourselves a better side than all the teams who finish below us. End of.

Should we be happy with that? Of course not, we should never be happy unless we are top. That is the expectations we have for our club.

However, as much as I appreciate how Pochettino has got Spurs playing, or as much as I can see how Klopp has his team attacking unless they finish above us then they aren't a better team.

7.) 11 Feb 2018 20:15:00
Last 12 matches has us 5th in the form guide. Like the trajectory? This carries on until the end of the season that is where we will finish imo.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 20:38:51
Luckily beast the league is decided over the course of an entire season, not a select number if games that support your negativity. Last year we were in 6th for most of the season. This time we have been 2nd for most if the season. That beast is called progress.

Am I happy in second? No never. But I'm happy we actually have a chance of finishing there considering in recent years we can no longer be considered a top 4 side.

9.) 11 Feb 2018 20:55:04
I'm worried too Beast especially with the form of Spurs recently. I didn't expect us to thrash them today but I fully expected the 3 points. The performance is almost as worrying as the result coming off the back of the Spurs game when we were equally as bad!

10.) 11 Feb 2018 21:07:44
Trajectory is important. Using your mindset against you, we are now 'progressing' back to 6th place!

City look better this year than they did last year when compared with us - I call that regression!

We didn't win the EFL cup this year - regression!

We look just as bad on the eye as last year despite spending hundreds of million on new players that look like strangers still - regression

The fact that so many of our fans cling to "we are 2nd" as though it were footballing oxygen is scary to me, using a false 2nd to justify the dross we see is embarrassing, especially when we may as well be 22nd compared to what City (our main rival) is doing to this league.

Spurs and Liverpool look far better equipped to take 2nd than us despite our head start any neutral would say that. Any neutral would say our play is not a true reflection of where we are in the league. This 2nd place thing will soon be 3rd, then 4th, then maybe people might start worrying when it's dicey for a CL spot.

What's happened to us, we have gone from 'Maverick' to 'Goose' in record time and very few people seem too bothered.

11.) 11 Feb 2018 22:19:47
Beast there is no other way fans will ever agree upon other than the league position to gage a teams ability and standing . I agree with u on lots of things we have been boring for years now and our football that of a team with ideas from ten years ago retreat and defend 30 yards from goal instead of newer coaches pressing the ball winning it bk and dominating even high up the pitch . Our defense takes the blame every loss regardless of forwards drawing blanks . But until we drop in the league we are 2 Nd best team although it's like saying we are the 2nd best fizzy wine after champagne.

12.) 11 Feb 2018 23:04:19
Fair enough mate and good point.

I suppose 'deserving' and 'being' are two different things and deserving is debatable.

Got a feeling about the 'Hare and the Tortoise' with this season the way the form table is looking, we are slowly being swamped. Almost like watching a guy hit the number on the first spin of roulette and then re-visiting the table a few hours later to see him drunk as a skunk with his car keys and phone being handed over to cover his next bet!

13.) 12 Feb 2018 06:32:15
Beast, before yesterday’s game the last 4games form guide had us second so it ebbs and flows mate.



26 Jan 2018 22:03:04
I love a Sanchez type player, a little fighter.
I'm going to call him . The Chilean terrier.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 04:21:07
Reminds me of Tevez so much with the closing down of opponears. Not going to lie Tevez as my favourite player and I never got over him leaving. But Sanchez is the combination of him with Ronaldo’s magic. So excited to see him flourish, good times ahead.



26 Jan 2018 10:02:26
Sanchez drug shock. What are them papers going to come out with next.
Sanchez missed drug test on the day of his transfer. come on he can't be in 3 places at one time. And was he an arsenal player at the time, I'm sure he didn't do it deliberate.
Why anyone buys those rags is beyond me.
I'm glad I have this site for all my football information. And ed001 for his daily news on football better than any of them rags.


{Ed001's Note - thank you Leahy. I saw the headlines this morning as I was doing that round up and thought it was hilarious the way they spun it to make it sound like a real big deal. This is the 3rd case this season, neither of the other two made back page headlines.}

1.) 26 Jan 2018 12:20:39
It’s ridiculous isn’t it Leahy. I expect apocalyptic headlines tonight if we labour to a win.

2.) 26 Jan 2018 12:46:18
I expect the ‘Yeovil’s entire squad cost x’ ‘ united squad cost this with the addition or £100m Sanchez’
Only transfer in history that you include all wages and fees in, £57m Laporte and that’s it, makes you laugh.

3.) 26 Jan 2018 14:58:59
Nobody has batted an eyelid at how much city are paying for Laporte. They have spent close to £200m on mangala, Otamendi, stones and soon to be Laporte yet united have ruined football paying Sanchez £350,000 a week for a premier league proven world class player. Clearly we are getting under the skin of the media.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 17:27:50
Sensationalism and 'fake news' is the order of the day i'm afraid. It what drives this generation of teens to early 20's . Of course not everybody but the majority.
The thirst for instant news and 20 second updates is insatiable apparantly and the ease that a story made up in someone's bedroom and can be a worldwide rumour within 5 mins without any comeback for spreading lies. It's laughable.

5.) 26 Jan 2018 18:11:29
I agree Ken it's a joke. Updates, clickbate, and the stupid headlines they come out with.
There should be fines in order for false news.

It’s not a new phenomenon. “A lie can travel half way round the world while the truth is putting its shoes on. ” Mark Twain.

Pogba needs to step up and say to himself, I'm going to lead this team on the pitch, I'm going to run myself and the other players around me in to a winning mentality.
The only thing is he hasn't got the balls or the desire or the winni g mentality to do this, now pogba I hope I'm wrong but it's time you showed us mate.
