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.

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 thinking about city, united games.
I remember the game away to city 93,94.
Down 2-0 at half time then cantons steps up for the equaliser not sure who got the first one think it was cantons again. I could be wrong, I remember the winner like it was yesterday, Roy Keane coming in at the back post, a beauty.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 21:35:48
Pretty sure Keane got 2 that day leahy.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 21:35:59

3.) 09 Dec 2017 21:52:38
Was it Ken, thought he got the winner, tis a bit ago now.
Great game that one.

4.) 09 Dec 2017 22:20:51
Great that winner wasn’t it, some united teams we’ve had.

5.) 09 Dec 2017 22:26:01
Keane got the winner coming in at back post from a Dennis Irwin cross, cantona got the other two leahy you are correct.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 09:24:22
I was in the United section of the Kippax that day. We had lost to Galatasaray and the City fans threw Turkish Delight chocolate bars at us. At half time we were 2-0 down but thought we were good enough to get back into it.

I remember the second half very well and when Keane scored we went ballistic. People who knew the streets around Maine Road will understand that after the game you had to be very careful, I didn’t dare smile until I got back in the car. Great day.

7.) 10 Dec 2017 09:59:43
The one where Keith Curle said to Giggs "go on then hit it" so giggs did.

8.) 10 Dec 2017 10:25:29

No the Giggs one was another game.

9.) 10 Dec 2017 11:19:53
Red man great game to be at,
Giggs came off the bench that day and set up cantona for the equaliser.

10.) 10 Dec 2017 15:20:29
I was at the giggs one, in an executive box. Had to run inside the box to hide my utter delight! Lots of angry city fans just upfront of the boxes. My favourite giggs goal, even more that the FA cup goal. Loved it!



08 Dec 2017 00:10:55
I was reading up about that ballon d'oh,
Anyone interested have a look at the list for the year 98 now there's a list of footballers.


1.) 08 Dec 2017 11:52:32
What a team France had that year to win the World Cup. Some great players.

2.) 08 Dec 2017 14:16:16
I share with the great Troy Deeney.



05 Dec 2017 21:45:23
There was a bit of debate on chat about their goal, for me onside blind played him in.
Any neutral man or ed have an opinion on their goal.


{Ed004's Note - He was onside but I disagree with the rule}

1.) 05 Dec 2017 23:41:23
I don't disagree with the rule ed simply because if any attavking player produces a great piece if skill and the defender slides off the pitch you can't just say that defender doesn't exist.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 23:41:54
I think the rule needs to stay the same to stop smarter players going off the pitch to make an attacker offside while in the box, while it is annoying, it may be for the best in the long run.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 00:11:11
Not sure how anyone can disagree with the rule, based on what? Players would use it to gain an adavantage if it wasn’t the rule.

4.) 06 Dec 2017 07:16:21
Don’t be silly GDS, we were effectively penalised ergo the rule is silly. If it happened the other way round then the rule would be great, obviously.



01 Dec 2017 19:04:05
A handy draw for England.


1.) 01 Dec 2017 19:26:03
Interesting draw, no real group of death this time round. Group F-Germany, Sweden, Mexico, South Korea is probably the toughest group on paper. Group D- Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria will be tough to call, as will group C- France, Australia, Peru, Denmark. All the others should be pretty straight forward with Russia and Uruguay coming out of group A. Spain and Portugal coming out of group B. Brazil and Switzerland out of group E. Along with England and Belgium out of group G. Poland will get out of group H along with Japan, although Colombia and Senegal could surprise someone.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 20:19:21
I'd be disappointed if England didn't atleast make the quatre final even if they lose to Belgium surely Panama, Tunisia and probs Poland in first knockout round is very achievable, if we were to handpick a route to the qf that wouldn't be to far off . Italy, Holland and another British or Irish side not being in are a big miss.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 00:45:27
Italy, Holland and Chile you mean, right?

4.) 02 Dec 2017 04:39:35

I’m sure you’ve seen enough Football and tournaments to know that ain’t how it happens, group stages never throw up the results you expect, there will be some surprises, that’s the beauty of football.

5.) 02 Dec 2017 09:50:16
Heated balls as per for England, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter a tournament again if they fail to qualify from that group of jobbers. Not that I’m bitter at all being a Welshman 😂.



01 Dec 2017 00:42:50
Why are us as United fans getting ahead of ourselves after beating Watford.
The next 2 games if we win them we can get a small bit excited. If we lose them we are back to square 1, the same old dribble as these past few years.
We are getting excited if city slip up.
Waiting for city to slip up.
We need 1 or 2 signings in January.
Top 4 that's where we are at.


1.) 01 Dec 2017 10:33:19

Don’t know if you’ve noticed but Watford are having a very good season and we took them apart in the first half. Are people only allowed to be happy if we beat top teams? Strange way of looking at it, you get 3 points for any win.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 10:37:14
So you think we are a top 4 side and that's where we at which is fine, yet we are currently 2nd, scored more goals and conceded less than we have for the past 3 or 4 seasons, playing better football than we have for 3 or 4 seasons, which would suggest we are improving and by your judgment of us, we are exceeding our expectations so why shouldn't we be excited?

3.) 01 Dec 2017 11:44:47
Watford I think man united should be beating Watford every time we play them.
Ports we are second. but we have nothing win yet. We are improving but it needs to be consistent.
The Christmas games will tell a lot.
I hope we win them all but I'm not convinced yet.

In some games you need the physical player to get stuck in.
It's not all about fancy players.
Fellani is good for us in both boxes for set pieces and he as a bit of heart.

Great player. I can't understand why Chelsea let him go. and Mata.
And kevin d. b. why the left him go.
That's 3 players that would make Chelsea favourites for the title.


{Ed002's Note - Matic wanted to leave and Chelsea are not a club to stand in the way of a player leaving should an acceptable offer be made. Mata was not wanted by Mourinho because he did not see him doing what was asked of him on the defensive side - so they moved him on. de Bruyne acted like a petulent child and whined a lot - and wanted guarantees of first team football which Chelsea don't give. There was a very good offer and they moved him on.}

On paper we had an attacking team, in the first half we sat back and our defenders hoofed the ball up the field. Not near good enough,
I don't think the ref was the problem.
