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..

Boys this is a great little site for us all to talk about football. Even though I don't know any of you in person I'd nearly say you are my friends, like a little group.
Now that debate today went on a bit and 2 sides clashed nothing more.
No one was abused or insulted.
Now whether it's toxic or lvg it's gone. now we are with Jose the here and now.
I don't know whether Danny is banned or not but he is A good bloke never insulted anyone on here a good honest poster.
I hope Danny can post on here from now on.
We will have to leave the word toxic and move on,
Sometimes things get a bit heated but there's no harm in most of the posters here.
It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.
Let's debate be nice and have a laugh.


{Ed0333's Note - let’s move on and talk about football ‘ERITAGE’ mate lol

1.) 19 Apr 2018 05:49:51
Agree leahy but do remember we don't see most of abuse and/ or toxic posts, they are filtered out. What people need to understand is stability and support is a must, we need to move in a single direction hand in hand not criticise and moan all the time. And most importantly we need to respect the editors who run, according to me, the best footballing site in the internet all for free.

So be a bit patient, moan a lot less and don't abuse anyone specially when you don't have half as much knowledge as the other person.

Rant over.

I didn’t even know I was banned.

5.) 19 Apr 2018 15:07:02
Leahy. No one was aggressive and no one insulted anybody. We're all passionate about United and we live and breath United. Hope Danny continues posting as I've always found his posts intetesting and intelligent.
If anyone is rude then i fully agree with Eds to remove them. I actually found the debate interesting. Non of us know the full answers but we all care about our club.

6.) 19 Apr 2018 20:08:46
Leahy, I never liked you to be honest. Sorry.

{Ed001's Note - it's the 12 isn't it? 99 and 12 just do not go together. Basic maths.}

8.) 19 Apr 2018 23:19:50
I love you, mate.



07 Apr 2018 21:33:47
Great win. Played well in second half, I'm buzzing, I only have one thing that's annoying me and that's pogba with his blue hair, I mean he does his hair so much he could have dyed it a different colour.
He is lucky fergie wasn't manager, fergie would have held him down while Keane shaved it off.
Anyway it's a good day when that's my only complaint.


1.) 07 Apr 2018 21:44:21
He dyed it blue when he went on International duty, change it before the derby and they'll spout the usual bull**** about him 'concentrating too much on his hair'. Stepped up in the 2nd half today and that's all that matters.

2.) 07 Apr 2018 21:47:11
Didn't know that scholsey, still he could have dyed it red😎.

3.) 07 Apr 2018 22:19:11
When he does his hair all the time he’s not concentrating on his job and when he leaves it the same for 3 weeks he’s out of order, thought he was class in 2nd half today and answered a lot of critics.

4.) 07 Apr 2018 23:04:13
He was gds2, but for me that sky blue hair wasnt right
I'd rather see it pink😎.

5.) 07 Apr 2018 23:42:30
I thought he was trying to be clever after Pep's comments.

6.) 08 Apr 2018 00:54:30
Had a good long chat to Guardiola on the pitch after the game, hope there isn’t a deal in place for the summer.



05 Apr 2018 19:36:29
I haven't seen a Scouser this more excited over one leg since Paul McCartney met Heather mills 😀😀😀😀.


1.) 05 Apr 2018 22:32:29
This is funny?



05 Apr 2018 11:11:04
Now Jose do you sit back against man city, more than likely.
Or do you do the right thing and press them high up the pitch.


1.) 05 Apr 2018 12:29:19
He'll sit back, he just doesn't trust his defenders, doesn't care about entertaining and will most likely never change his outlook.

2.) 05 Apr 2018 12:43:27
Your midfield isn't mobile enough to press at a similar level as ours.

Think about it, Pogba? Mata?

3.) 05 Apr 2018 12:45:24
What have we got to lose. We sit back and postpone city's title for another week by getting a draw.

Just let the rains off

We might get beat but at least make it harder for them to win.

Maybe learn a few things for next season.

4.) 05 Apr 2018 12:56:57
Random Red, I think we have players such as Herrera, Lingard and Sanchez who can all comfortably press teams. Pogba in theory should easily be able to as well, he is quick and mobile. Martial, Rashford and even Lukaku are all mobile and quick enough to effectively press.

I agree there are some in our team that aren't suited to a pressing style, Matic, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata ect. However, we don't need to play those players, we have enough good quality players who can press a team. It's just a matter of our manager not wanting to.

5.) 05 Apr 2018 12:58:38
Cities main defensive weapon is they have the ball for such long periods they rarely come under much pressure. I feel pep likes playing teams who sit back as it allows a massive possession advantage for his team . Jose is maybe the best at setting up to be hard to beat but it's still a style I think pep likes to play against . Klopp has not taken this approach now and in the past and had some success and pep is aware his team will press and attack and klopp seems the only coach who has been able to influence peps team selection, centre half at left back instead of a midfielder comfortable on the ball and Stirling removed for a more solid gundogan . I'd like to see us plant the seed we will attack them next season and make pep not know what to expect in future as he can have a really educated guess at the minute that we will sit back and let pep go with his plan A .

6.) 05 Apr 2018 17:07:47
Just like in boxing styles make fights. Liverpool are all wrong for city. Unfortunately we are not we are like sitting ducks to them. Hopefully we give our all and try to win the game. Can’t ask for anymore than that as things currently stand.



03 Apr 2018 22:26:37
Real and Baryern look to be the 2 big boys in Europe right now
Then we look at Messi and Ronaldo for the last decade or more and have seen 2 world class acts in world football. then I look to see where's the next big player or players and I don't see them, because dybala if it's you we are in trouble cause your miles off.
We might not see 2 more players like this again for a long time, so for me I will enjoy watching them for the last couple of years they have left.


1.) 03 Apr 2018 22:44:07
We have truly been blessed with not one but two players from a different planet in Ronaldo and Messi. Messi has the most unbelievable talent and Ronaldo is the player that turns up for every big game. It is astonishing how good they are and it has been a pleasure to have watched them both.

I agree Leahy that the next group of players to step up are nowhere near them. I would say Neymar, De Bruyne, sane, dybala, Kane and mbappe and pogba are the players with the ability to win the next ballon d’ors. Perhaps you could add ousmane Dembele, martial (on potential not current ability) and others to that list. But they will be nowhere near Ronaldo and Messi.

2.) 03 Apr 2018 23:20:29
Why's no-one mentioning jonjo shelvey for heavens' sake!

3.) 03 Apr 2018 23:22:50
Asensio or Mbappe are the next two stars. It is just so hard to do what thesw players do every games especially Ronaldo . He is so decisive and has got to this level with hard work where Messi is just gifted.

Messi is below becausw he has only played at Barcelona where everything is built around him where as Ronaldo had to improve every single year to get to this level and dis it in the premier league as well.

The next two superstars is going to be one of Mbappe or Asensio they jusr have that big gamw personality about them feom the little i have seen of them, Dybala needs to make a move to make that step as he too has lots of potential.
