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.

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..

Half a game gone and Chelsea look like their missing matic.
Big player we got there.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 16:26:59
Can you imagine the reaction on here if we where 3.0 down.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 16:43:27
I can imagine, the first game is always an important game to win.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 16:46:25
Watching the same game and cannot believe what the chelsea players do after every ref call that goes against them or a foul that they want card given against burnley. surely the pL is going to send them a big fine for this kind of behavior.

David Luiz should be sent off for dissent and dirty play in almost every game.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 17:00:38
A few surprise results today. I had villa to win the championship got beat 3-0.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 17:15:39
Matic will be a big player for us this season a square peg in a square hole an Expert in his position pogba and others have to improve and matic hopefully will enable that a bit more.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 17:18:07
He could have had 5 yellows today x files. When its going well he can look good but when its out up to him he often buckles has a very suspect temperament imo.

7.) 12 Aug 2017 17:50:29
Chelsea had next to no injuries last season and no euro football major difference imo.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 17:56:35
Where's Jackson?

9.) 12 Aug 2017 18:31:14
I'm here. We're not missing Matic per se. We're already missing Bakayoko though.
Think you're being a bit harsh regarding Luiz. He's not a dirty player. He was pretty frustrated though today. Can't say I blame him. The ref made sure he gave us every possible card he could. Heck, he gave Rudiger a yellow for being alive near a Burnley player.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 18:44:01
Jackson is on the headphones having another listen to the sharkopod.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 19:32:56
Jackson I can't see how you missed bakayoko as I don't think he played a premiership game with Chelsea before. And for me you did miss matic.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 20:50:14
David Luiz not a dirty player😂😂😂😂 🤣🙄.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 22:23:50
That's just it, Leahy. He hasn't played a game yet and he already seems crucial. I really think he van be a beast for us in the middle.
Matic missing wasn't the key today. Cahill being an idiot and the ref being card happy are what made today bizarro world.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 23:20:53
Febragas was being an idiot as well. i think the ref did ok.
Luiz standing still for their first goal, to be fair morata looked good when he came on.

15.) 12 Aug 2017 23:51:17
Morata looked legit fantastic when he was one. Even when we were down to 9 he looked good. He made the loss easier to bare for most Chelsea fans I'll bet. And that's saying a lot.
Fabregas indeed was disappointing. You'd expect a guy with his experience to know better, but alas. I do look forward to lots of players reacting to refs' decisions and clapping sarcastically and then not being shown a yellow. That'll be good.
Luiz was too agitated in the first half after the red card and failed to organize the back line. It was a shame but it's what happened.

Ref was mostly decent, but the problem was his inconsistency. Arfield went in with his leg stretched and studs showing on Alonso, yet he only got a yellow. Surely if the ref wants to be strict (sending Cahill off) that should've been a red as well? Alonso doesn't get a pen for being pushed (even if it was a light push) in the back. Yet minutes later Rüdiger gets a yellow for being near a falling Vokes? How is that being consistent?

16.) 13 Aug 2017 01:59:31

I really think buying a lamborgini would do a world to me. It will be so important to me

Heck! I am missing my lambo already


17.) 13 Aug 2017 07:26:49
Jred, I've said same thing to my Liverpool and Chelsea mates. Expect a much tougher season with several injuries and plenty of tiredness. Big difference playing one game in 7 days and 3 games in 9 days. Add in the traveling etc. You need to be able to use all squad, but problem is especially for Liverpool is their squad is bare with averageness. We have a big squad and can compete on all fronts. Especially if perisic and a fullback is signed. Oh and we don't sell Martial to Spurs.

18.) 13 Aug 2017 14:48:13
Difference is, Srestha, that Chelsea have actually bought Bakayoko. You on the other hand probably haven't come close to buying a Lambo.



08 Aug 2017 23:53:30
First thing matic is a big plus. The thing that worries me is if lukkaku goes on a dry run or gets injured where does our goals come from, pogba, miki, rash, martial, Mata all need to chip in with more goals.
Lindeof will make a good defender a bit raw yet. Rashford had a good go at the Madrid defence. Fellani getting stuck in got us our goal see he is affective when plan b is needed.
We need a proper left back in that team,
We might be good enough for top 4 but it's not a title winning side we have.
But another signing or 2 puts us in the hunt.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 00:16:12
We were playing arguably the best team in the world and from where I was sitting, overall, I felt we gave a reasonably good account of ourselves. There was the 2 on 1, the 3 on 2, the lukaku offside from the Herrera challenge, the rashford chance and the Fellani one and that's just off the top of my head. A bit more decisiveness / clinicalness in the final third and I felt we were right in the game, with what I consider the best team in the world.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 00:43:55
Oh and I forgot to mention we ultimately lost to an offside goal.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 03:37:06
Agree completely LCLC

I read the messages on here before I had seen the match. It was a much better performance than I was expecting.

Great run out against a team that are the best in Europe.

RM first goal was borderline offside, and it was their holding midfielder playing furthest forwards with a stunning finish to an inch perfect pass. Doff your cap and curse the linesman.

We had plenty of good moments throughout the first half. WE CANNOT DEFEND CROSSES INTO OUR BOX. Doesn't matter how tall your team is if no one bothers to attack the ball. Dito our opponents box, if the ball gets past the first defended.

Second half we looked much better, but so did Real. Mike Smalling actually played quite well, but still grabs shirts in the box, all the time. Lindegard will get better when he settles down and Bailly was missed.

I'm worried what happens if Lukaku gets injured. I think this squad is growing, but we are heavily reliant on Rash or Martial becoming a top class player this season.

Fellaini made a difference when he came on. But if Defoe had come on and played up next to Lukaku it possibly would have had the same effect, or more of a goal threat. We need a Left back.

Lots of positives for me, but if I was Martial I would be wondering whether Jose trusts me.



30 Jul 2017 13:49:14
Psg. What is going on there, a bad league with a handful of good teams, throwing serious money about, neymar 222 mil. Well he isn't going their to test himself every week against top teams, Qatar I don't understand why in that French league, The champions league I hope you get knocked out the first round. That money for one player is crazy and I wouldn't be one bit happy if United spent that money on one player,
A joke how do they cover the wages involved they have a 47,000 capacity stadium.
Football is been ruined by these takeovers and what do Qatar know about football or sport only there's big money there.
UEFA need to do something fast .
Wages, transfer fees. agents
A loyalty bonus
Clubs paying loyalty
He is my son and I want 30 million for him. ok here you go sir, sign here.
Now if it was my son I'd sign him up for United for free, and be proud to sit there watching him. I'm sure if my child became a millionaire they would make my life comfortable.
The days of playing for the shirt is gone.


1.) 30 Jul 2017 14:16:06
I agree it's out of control, the crazyness intensifies the closer you get the to the crash.

I remember when "loyalty" meant something, it's just a word thrown around now losing any meaning. Like so much in this world we live in it's all short term, no accountability and BS being spewed left right and centre so the perpetrators can sleep at night. People afraid to call out anything in case they get black balled or life ruined by PC police.

If I were a journo at a press conference I wouldn't last 2 minutes, my constant line would be "how do you justify that point you just made? " followed by "in what world does that make sense? "

2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:41:49
The one thing that I see is no matter what happens why is every interview about neymar answered by pique and iniesta? Are they trying to put pressure on him? Or can they just not keep their mouths shut? Annoys me a bit!



28 Jul 2017 23:42:14
A quick question if anyone knows.
If ibra stays does he get paid every week while he is injured or is it by the game he will get paid as he has a huge salary.
For me anyway it would be good luck ibra and thanks for last season.


1.) 29 Jul 2017 00:30:35
What do you mean, [Flash Gordon approaching] by stay? We may re sign him and that will mean he gets paid once he's is fit, he won't be getting paid in the mean time as he has been released for now.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 03:48:40
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
I'm more of a batman.



12 Jul 2017 13:11:21
No rumours of woodward leaving pre season this year. He is staying at home to tie up deals for. dier, Sanchez, fabhino, bale, neymar, persic, nainggolan, griezman, matic, semedo, Tierney, morata, and a few more I've missed.
So he is a bit busy this year.

Ken, you have some good points and some bad points to offer, we have no power over who United sign, but as fans we have to back the player who puts on a red shirt, now fellani wasn't the best player but when he came in he did his job, got on with it took stick from his own fans, opposition fans, the media, but luckily the man is made of thick skin, wherever he goes I will wish him the height of luck and happyness,

Now if I was looking at a player not to give a stuff about it would be the like of di Maria, depay and so on, they didn't give a f**k about United too self observed,
I love a player who will give you 100% and who cares about the shirt he puts on,
We all have opinions, different ones;

Ken I agree with some things you say, and I agree with jred, and sometimes I agree with gds2 even though we often had a go at each other.
Respect every other boys, We support the same team at the end of the day.

He mightened be the best player, A bit clumsy, but he was bought in to United and he gave his all might not have been good enough but it was a disgrace to boo him.
We all want the best players for United but if you have a few flair and fancy players in the team you win nothing, you need that hard good tackling player that breaks up Play, The one that gets in your face, the one that demands 100% from everyone around him,
At the minute our defence needs looking at, We have one top defender Bailey and he is only settling in to the league, smalling Jones Blind, Not good enough, Shaw too many chances imo. We have the keeper, We need a lb and another CD. With experience.
Lindeof, too early to say.
So before we blame fellani ask why we had to sit 2 players some games in front of the defence.
