Ed002 how are you, Ed I was just wandering have man United any interest in joao felix.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 21:39:28
I don't think 002 Is talking to me😎
Anyway he is a good one for the future, would look good with the young talent we will have coming through in the next few years.

{Ed002's Note - I missed this sorry. Manchester United remain keen on an embarrassing number of JM targets and yes Felix I’d one.}

2.) 16 Feb 2019 22:28:30
Cheers Ed,

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 16 Feb 2019 23:50:46
Why would it be embarrassing? Surely they paid JM to make such recommendations would seem to mad to disregard his input as he a top level coach and football manager.

{Ed002's Note - It is embarrassing as the club gave him little support and are now making a joke of themselves chasing after the targets he identified.}

4.) 17 Feb 2019 09:38:10
I see your point but think Jose made it so hard for people to back him it makes sense too.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 01:43:29
Surely just because JM happened to agree with many other pundits scouts and supporters on some of the best talent around in world football doesn’t mean that they are looking to pursue ‘his’ targets after firing him. There are more opinions than JM’s and it is possible for those opinions to be the same?
Felix is supposedly one of the best young talents in Europe so why would United not be interested, regardless of what JM thought?

{Ed002's Note - It was not him agreeing with pundits, scouts and supporters - his interest in him went back a very long way. The club failed to give him support yet are now looking at his targets. Embarrassing is the word.}

6.) 18 Feb 2019 19:01:20
Mourinho could have had as much support as he wanted yet he still wouldn’t have won anything. No longer anywhere near the top of the game and and too arrogant to change his ways.

7.) 18 Feb 2019 20:08:38
Have to disagree panne. He hadnt the support he needed and i g3nuinely believe he will win major honours again.

And fyi. i consider the europa a win for jose, its a vup we hadne ever wone before as well.



15 Jul 2017 15:58:50
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.



02 May 2017 06:54:58
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,

Var is checking to see if England can play out from the back.
Na they can't,
Maguire I wouldn't buy him with stolen money.


1.) 06 Jun 2019 23:10:52
The amount of times he ran the ball out straight into trouble, then would do it again 5 mins later. only jellyfish and English defenders appear to be the only species with no feedback loop and the inability to learn.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 23:40:26
Wait til he signs for City and gets a proper coach like Pep then see how good he will be.

3.) 07 Jun 2019 00:58:23
Ya just like the player he made stones.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 06:59:18
The problem is they tried to play out like City but without the midfield in front to take the ball under pressure and move it on (Delph, really? ) . It brought extreme pressure on the centre backs. Stones mistakes were costly but if you sit that deep a mistake will be dangerous. Suicidal tactics from Southgate, who never changed even it was obviously causing a problem. In terms of Lingard I thought he did reasonably well.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 08:59:43
Prper coach like Pep😂😂😂😂.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 09:24:54
I don't know why Henderson was in the bench. He certainly didn't need a rest after having nearly 3 weeks off before the CL final.
Sterling should have played o the left and Sanchi on the right.
Maguire is overrated. Still living off the back of that world cup.
AWB should have been in the squad and playing RB.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 13:03:52
Maguire was stoned yesterday lol, he didn't even know where the ball was or how to pass it forward, i understand the possesion based footy that Southgate wants to play and its the right way going forward but he needs the players, England needs to developed those players, Rice? i thought he was horrendous, i still don't know what other people see in him, maguire? if you going to play possesion based footy maguire should be the waterboy, nowhere near the first team, midfield needs more mobility and creativity, Southgate will change the way England has played over the years but it won't be easy. Henderson needed to start yesterday to have more control in midfield, Delph is not a bad footballer but Rice doesn't have any creatity in him, Sancho had a very bad day and sterling was non existent the whole game, Rashford? idk about you but the only thing he does well is run, very speedy player with no football brain at all. Lingard played ok don't know why people are talking about here.



26 May 2019 16:38:28
A united legend game with no Roy Keane, a joke, fergie has too much power around old Trafford, great respect for fergie but it's time to move on from the boss,
We need a new boss, even ole still calls him boss.


1.) 26 May 2019 17:07:45
Keane was a great player and as big a legend as anyone could name. Yet Keane himself has burnt his bridges with United and takes every chance he gets to have a dig at the club as he is a bitter man. It's a shame, for me he was one of the greatest United players I have ever seen. Yet that doesn't make him a great human being.

He could come back and enjoy these events and be part of what was a fantastic celebration today of one of our greatest ever sides.

But he himself needs to work towards rebuilding the bridges just as much as anyone else connected with the club needs to if that is to happen.

Sadly, I don't see that happening. It's easy to blame Sir Alex, but Keane has burnt bridges with many people at the club and it is not just down to Sir Alex.

2.) 26 May 2019 16:53:08
Said it last week it was never posted.

3.) 26 May 2019 16:59:50
Get a grip leahy.

4.) 26 May 2019 17:14:47
Who knows if he was asked or not. Either way it’s a disgrace. They both should be man enough.

5.) 26 May 2019 17:58:32
Like who shappy? Do tell.

6.) 26 May 2019 18:59:29
This thing about Keane could go on and on, first thing he was a born winner and he upset a few people along the way, now that doesn't bother me, I've seen ex players lately and coaches who were at United at the time who have come out and said he would get at anyone who wasn't training hard enough ar playing hard enough, they all have said he was doing it for the right reasons and when they went out playing with him they knew he had their back no matter what he said to them at training,
And it would have been nice to see him walk out for that legend game,
Blackpool red your right they both should be man enough at this stage.

7.) 26 May 2019 19:28:07
Shappy what has he said about united or united players that isn't true,
And its hard for someone to say another person isn't a great human being, I know people that know him very well, they tell me you couldn't meet a nicer human being when he isn't working, and a very funny man believe it or not, met him a few times myself and he was very nice,
Another thing people don't talk about is he does a lot of work for charitys, a young girl in Cork needed an operation in America her parents couldn't afford it, he paid for the whole lot, you won't see that in the media, plus he wouldn't want it in the media.
A rare human being that fella with a big heart.

8.) 26 May 2019 21:48:06
Leahy, what he has said has been an opinion for the most part. So it can't be seen as something that is true or not as it's subjective.

But he has been scathing on more than one occasion both pre-Sir Alex retiring and after.

He upset a number of coaches at the club before he left, it was them that complained to Sir Alex about him acting like a coach and not as a player. He up set Sir Bobby while at the club with what he said about academy players, he also upset a couple of people on the board.

Since he has left several ex-players and ex-coaches have attempted to extend the olive branch and all have been met with the same rejection.

He isn't involved in games like the one tonight because HE doesn't want to be involved. Whether Sir Alex or anyone else at the club offered or not.

9.) 26 May 2019 21:28:49
Roy Keane tells it how it is on the current United team, the rest have mates at the club n watch what they say! He's a born winner! I doubt he'd agree to play in these games but it would be nice to see him in a united shirt again.

10.) 26 May 2019 22:48:30
Wow. You’ve really read far too much into a charity match.

11.) 26 May 2019 23:08:46
Acting like a coach, fergie had him managing the dressing room,
Anyway we are probably better off with a player like pogba he is nice to everyone. Takes pictures makes videos and dyes his hair, no good on the pitch though where it matters most.

12.) 27 May 2019 05:01:26
Keane played for united in the Liam Miller game just a few months ago. So there can't be that many issues with him representing united. Maybe he had other plans.

13.) 27 May 2019 09:39:14
We needed Keane as Manager instead of OGS . Should of got him until at least end of season 🤣🤣.

14.) 27 May 2019 11:34:10
Keane didn’t play in the game that it was the anniversary for anyway, perhaps he felt like it wasn’t his day to celebrate. I know Scholes played but his mates were all playing. Reading far too much into a friendly game Erich was fantastic and to have 16 of the 18 who played on that night in Barcelona was great I thought.



12 May 2019 18:24:36
Alright boys not the best season but on we go, we will see what the summer brings us,
At the moment we are a few sandwiches short of a picnic, I don't think ole is the man for us but we will have to wait and see,
I would greatly thank the eds for all the time they put in to this site to give us the platform to talk to each other and have a moan,
It's hard to thank them individually but we can see the time they put in, Ed001 for all the write ups most days better than any newspaper.
And all the posters for posting,
All and all the best site on the Internet for me.
Thank you all kindly.


{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. I really appreciate that. Especially at the moment!}

1.) 12 May 2019 19:20:44
Great post leahy mate. I echo all of that.

2.) 12 May 2019 20:10:53
Well done to all the Eds and have an awesome summer.

{Ed007's Note - An you buddy 👍

3.) 13 May 2019 03:03:39
Thanks to the Ed’s and all posters.
Onward we go.

4.) 13 May 2019 14:52:15
Well said leahy. Many thanks for all the insight the eds have kindly provided us. It’s been a horrible season but this site has been a great way to vent my frustration. I’m logging off for the summer as I need time to step away from football and enjoy more important things in life. Have a nice summer and see you all at the beginning of the season.



11 May 2019 13:14:43
Best of luck to you ander,
Not the most talented midfield player in the prem but his work rate and general play made him a good box to box player, at this present moment he would walk in to our midfield, so all we can do is see what the summer brings.




16 Apr 2019 23:49:06
In 2011 against basel 3 out of 4 of the back 4 started that was the same year we got knocked out in the group stages, have we moved on, no, but we did a lot of panic buying since then,
Nothing against ole but I said from day 1 he should never have got the job then and there.
Whoever is making these decisions needs sacking or it will get worse.


1.) 17 Apr 2019 02:09:59
I wholeheartedly agree Leahy12.
Consider why Young and Valencia were converted to RB/ LB.
Saves money.
Jones and Smalling have never been great defenders. Rojo is very poor.
Bailly is injury prone and has lost his confidence.
Shaw positional awareness is very poor.

Dalot and Lindelof look good. (Lindelof has come on leaps and bounds) .

Top teams are build one solid defence. a lot of clubs are going to be rebuilding this summer. That makes transfer more difficult.

Unfortunately I think we will continue to decline.

Woodward for a guy that is all about money commercially anyway signs Sanchez on a ridiculously long contract and monster wages. Its about time the Glazers appointed someone to run the football side of the club.

2.) 17 Apr 2019 06:40:06
Oh well nothing I didn’t expect. This club has been rotten from the top to bottom for far too long now but unfortunately nothing will change until the Glazers are gone. Dreadful signings coupled with paying astronomical wages to bang average players. We need players who want to die for the shirt and know what it means to play for this special football club.

{Ed002's Note - It has nothing to do wityh the owners.}

3.) 17 Apr 2019 07:10:50
Mad Hatter I don’t know how you or anyone can say it’s to save money. We’ve spent obscene amounts.

If you’re looking for someone to blame, point your finger towards EW and poor recruitment.

We’ve spent a lot and spent it badly.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 07:58:19
Woodward won't be sacked. But he has to become more wise to spending and wages. The fact that he gave the likes of shaw and martial mass wage increases when they were on good money anyway. The reports of rashford being offered 250-300k is quite frankly laughable. We need to be more wise and anyone that wants out should be shown the door. I just hope we steer clear of rakitic, kroos, bale and costa more big name mistakes. We need to build a team for the future. In the short term we need to become a regular in the champions league places before any runs at the title.

5.) 17 Apr 2019 08:49:13
Sorry Ed totally disagree there the owners who employ the staff ie Ed wooden top. The buck stops with them.

{Ed002's Note - The owners do not employ the staff - they have representation on the board that makes the decisions. It seems to be a theme that the MU supports simply don't understand the structure of the club and sure as hell don't understand how the club works.}

6.) 17 Apr 2019 09:20:37
Thank you Ed, I have been saying this for the past two weeks, the owners have put put people and teams at various levels and sections to run the club, if we want to lash out at anyone then let us hound them and let the owners be. Similar analogy is when the street light outside my house is not working and I start blaming the prime minister or the president of the country.

{Ed002's Note - President May has no interest in your street lamp.}

7.) 17 Apr 2019 13:31:36

Converting Young and Valencia into defenders is a money saving tactic.
Why else would the manager do that.

8.) 17 Apr 2019 16:08:38
MH. You’re totally wide of the mark.

We spent how much on Bailly? He can’t get a game ahead of Smalling and Jones. Maybe that money should’ve been spent on a good quality RB or RW.

Who else. Miki, Sanchez, even Pogba?

Fred and Lindelof have shown a bit of promise but for the money spent we need players who fit right in.

Lukaku at a very high fee can’t nail down a place.

All bad investments.

Naturally if you’re trying to buy success like we have for the past 5 years a line has to be drawn somewhere. You can’t buy a new team every summer.

Valencia and Young are playing full back, like Jones and Smalling are still playing CB, because we’ve spent our budget elsewhere and badly.

Maybe money should be saved on the salaries of those employed to advise and recruit.

Pogba can't see it, we bought him for 90 mil. Was it, with inflation and for us to make money and not look like clowns again, we surely would want up in 150 mil. For him.
Will juve pay that, now they might look to offload a few players in the deal they want rid of, are we going to take them, can't see it happening.
Don't think any side will pay the money we want, and we have to put a big transfer fee on him.

Any of the eds interested in doing a bit of journalism for this guy, he pays well but might take your life if you critise him or his country
What a nice man.
Do we need his money, aren't the glaziers bad enough, united as a club can generate a lot of money on its own, just need a few players that will play for the shirt.

I don't think 002 Is talking to me😎
Anyway he is a good one for the future, would look good with the young talent we will have coming through in the next few years.


{Ed002's Note - I missed this sorry. Manchester United remain keen on an embarrassing number of JM targets and yes Felix I’d one.}

Worst write up I ever read,
Your a bad judge of a player,
I mean I saw you write on here a few weeks back that Roy Keane wasn't great and the players around him made him look better and you were dead serious. Give up writing about players.

All players do some type of bad behaviour, their in the best of hotels, fed every meal, probably don't even know how to pay a bill.
They get bored and start acting the magot, we all did it at some stage, but they are that brain dead that they make videos of it,
Now here we are talking about those boys and the thread below about 2 of the greatest midfielders that ever played in the league and not a word about it,
Social media has the world ruined.

A born winner, never again to see the likes of it.
I'm just glad I saw that era in football.

True So72, I like Tierney, surprised he isn't being talked about more.
