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.

Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?

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.

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 Β£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 Β£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.

{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 Β£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.

I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.

Leahy12

{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

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..

Not great to watch. But a bit of courage and determination goes a long way.

{Ed007's Note - I'd love to see Celtic sign McClean just for the ensuing banter ;) Seriously though they can't get Norn Iron in the play-offs can they?}


3.) 09 Oct 2017 22:55:33
Ya, that would be something. or we could take out potugal and Ronaldo. lol
No team will want to play ireland in the play offs.

{Ed025's Note - i think they will leahy..


4.) 09 Oct 2017 23:05:01
a lot of good teams in the playoffs but they're there for a reason any can beat any over two legs, Croatia and Italy's are the only two i'd fear.


5.) 09 Oct 2017 23:10:36
Ed we are a hard team to beat,
We were missing 3 or 4 players and I thought houlihan should have started but I was wrong.
As I said there's good spirit there and it will take a good team to come to dublin and beat us.
And we can win away, we didn't lose an away game all campaign.

{Ed025's Note - im not saying you are no-hopers leahy, just that other teams like italy and possibly portugal will be the teams to avoid, i really hope you get through and i will be cheering them on mate..


6.) 10 Oct 2017 07:31:02
Think it's easy playing Ireland ed0025?

{Ed025's Note - not easy angel but certainly easier than facing the italys and portugals of this world mate, good luck to the irish though and i would certainly sooner watch them than boring england ..


7.) 10 Oct 2017 09:30:35
Congrats ireland, if it had to be anyone taking our place then happy it’s you guys but your going to need to show some ambition in the play offs, 1 mistake from wales is what got you thru, not that i'm bitter πŸ˜‚.


8.) 10 Oct 2017 09:57:54
Haha WRD. Correct me if I'm wrong but even a draw wasn't enough for you lot at the end due to other results last night. Imagine if you had scored one right at the death, then none of us would have went through lol.

I think all those games are tough ed. I think Greece probably being the easiest for the seeded teams.

Ireland always seem to have this grit and ability to get a result when needed. I think Italy would prefer someone else than Ireland. We've always done okay against them.


9.) 10 Oct 2017 11:57:30
Ed025, out of the 4 unseeded teams (Greece, Sweden, Ireland, Northern Ireland) Who do you think out of the seeded teams (Italy, Portugal/ Switzerland, Denmark, Croatia) will want to avoid the most in the qualifiers.

I'm betting they would all prefer someone else rather than the ROI. I'm with you on this Leahy.

{Ed025's Note - sweden obviously, the other 3 will be a good draw for the seeds angel, you may not want to hear that mate but its true..


11.) 10 Oct 2017 14:52:10
No your right Croatia won so we had to win to get above them and Slovakia into the last playoff spot. Wales played well in general play but we didn’t really know what to do up top, Allen going off didn’t help, obvs missed Bale but can’t rely on 1 player, future is bright with Brooks, Woodburn, Lawrence and can see bale being used as a CF for wales before too long. Will Coleman be there tho, I’m not so sure. As for Ireland, tough team to break down but to beat any of those in the play offs they will need to have a go at some point, hope Ireland do it for Keanoo! Lol.


12.) 10 Oct 2017 18:43:50
I s even put Greece above ROI a good team spirit but a walk over for the seeded teams.


13.) 10 Oct 2017 18:46:48
Teams shouldn't be seeded for the play offs. Fair draw, sink or swim.


14.) 10 Oct 2017 16:57:29
Okay mate it that's what you think. I would have thought a toss up between those 2 sides.

Ireland are always tough to beat. Just the reality of the past number of years. They always seem to get a result.

Nah ed0025 I'm not a touchy Irish fan or anything. International football is what it is. For me Sweden and Ireland are a toss up, Leahy was right, I don't think anyone would like to draw Ireland. I'm sure they would much prefer either Greece or N Ireland.


15.) 12 Oct 2017 01:27:24
So the seeded teams would rather play the 20th placed team than the 34th placed team? Aye, dead on lads πŸ˜€.

Did we lose yesterday or something,
Boys it's a good sign if we play bad and still win, I think rashford is getting very unfair criticism. i hope it doesn't turn in to having a go at him all season like Rooney last year.
Sometime it's hard to play against teams that get most of their team behind the ball.
Looking forward to the city game.
Onwards and upwards.

Leahy12

1.) 18 Sep 2017 10:59:22
Yeah good win leahy and it was never in doubt imo.
Rash is olaying ok i don't see any issue personally. Not sure he is getting loads of stick i saw 3 or 4 negative posts about his display yesterday (which was below average) but i don't think that constitutes a huge amount of abuse or stick don't fall into the trap of one of our rgular hyberbole posters of exagerating everything and just making stuff up leahyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Btw dubs saw off mayo yesterday even though i'm from dub was up for mayo.


2.) 18 Sep 2017 11:15:08
I'm happy the way the season is going anyway so far. 2 great signings matic and lukkaku,
Mayo were robbed. Great game though.


3.) 18 Sep 2017 11:17:09
It was in doubt for me right up until we got the 2nd. In my humble opinion anybody saying they felt comfortable throughout that game are guilty of putting the finishing score ahead of the performance we were watching. Everton looked the most likely team to score from 20mins in, (when they realised we were not as good as the media have made out and decided to try and make a game of it), we made defensive substitutions to contain and fortunately we managed to be ruthless again when it mattered. They looked fitter despite us having 2 days extra to prepare and being the home team dominating early posession.

There is nothing over the top about criticising our play of late. The results have papered over a lot of 6/ 10 performances, just the same as last year in the cups. We'll get a good hiding playing against Chelsea, City, Spurs or good CL teams if we play like we have so far this season (aside from the first game) . There is a hell of a lot to work on, results are great but we expected 13 points from the first 5 games - I think in our heart of hearts most of us expected to be playing better, but the results have skewed things imo.


4.) 18 Sep 2017 11:24:55
How did everton look more likely to score when we had treble their attempts beast.
I understand you feel the need to justify your negativity and your predictions but your talking nonsense.
Sours are playing crao why should they give us a hiding city how did they do against everton. I don't forsee the hidings you do but then again i'm not predicting them like you have been.


5.) 18 Sep 2017 11:51:22
I'm sorry beast but that's a load of crap mate we play some scintillating stuff we look solid and in lukaku we have goals and link up play and I very much doubt anyone will give us a "hiding" this season will we lose games? Yes of course we will but the continued battering of our performances is becoming more boring than an LVG training session.

My personal belief is by Xmas there will only be 2 teams in a title race ourselves and city and it's a tough one to call who will edge it as we both have pros and cons .


6.) 18 Sep 2017 11:52:58
Loath as I am to defend the beast I do wish that we looked slightly more watertight at the back. We gave away 2 bad goals against stoke and I can't imagine a Kane or an Aguero letting us off the way Rooney did yesterday. Also I was alarmed at how much space was available for Everton on our left side especially in the first half.
That said it was another efficient performance by us and with Southampton and palace to follow hopefully another 6 points should be forthcoming.


7.) 18 Sep 2017 11:30:00
I didn't watch it leahy i'm not into gaa football enjoy the hurling though. Yep so far so good the issue will o ly come if we need to start the likez of darmian fellaini smalling blind etc in more than 20 league games. Not even matic and lukaku can cover them. let's hope key players don't get injured.


8.) 18 Sep 2017 11:32:30
I'm not being negative, I'm just not being overly positive. I'm just calling it as I saw it. I was genuinely worried, I cashed out my bet, I could see us slowing down, gravitating backwards, inviting Everton to attack and they had some very good chances. Fortunately we were ruthless again, but that game was not always in the bag, Everton could easily have done a Stoke.

If we play how we did yesterday against top teams we will get shown up. Real Madrid are the only top team we have played and they outclassed us.

Everton have been off colour and typically 4-0 would be an amazing result, in fact it was a great result. But for much of the game nobody would have predicted 4-0 at all, it was in the balance - Pickford barely had to make a save until we blitzed them.


9.) 18 Sep 2017 12:15:59
As quite a few pointed out it was only really Shan that got his knickers in a twist .

10.) 18 Sep 2017 12:39:13
It can't be a coincidence that during the last 10 minutes we are smashing teams it shows a level of mental and physical strength that we haven't had for years I'm chuffed with our start there definitely areas that need improvement but not by much imo.

Deano
Shows belief,


12.) 18 Sep 2017 12:51:44
I think we've played pretty well this year apart from yesterday when I thought we allowed Everton to dominate us at OT. Still, you can't be great every game and we did win 4-0 so all's well that ends well.


13.) 18 Sep 2017 14:29:11
This is a great site during transfer windows as the Eds have some amazing info. However it's very negative once the season is up and running. We win 4-0 again and people are on here moaning. Absolutely ridiculous. The way we tore Everton apart in the last 15 minutes was sublime. This was a team the amazing and mighty City scraped a point against at home by the way.


14.) 18 Sep 2017 14:58:42
Finally some sense Eric! . Good performance yesterday . It was matches like yesterday we were drawing last year.


15.) 18 Sep 2017 14:52:40
Eric - Only a few people are moaning about the performance. The vast majority are shooting people like me down for being critical, so not too sure how you think the site is negative.

That performance was by no means vintage, so frankly I don't care if it was better or worse result wise. I know for sure there was a lot of room for improvement which bodes well for us. Watch West Ham match then any other game this season and it's like watching two different teams. Don't we all strive to have performances like the West Ham one every week?


16.) 18 Sep 2017 15:22:20
We all strive for perfection in everything we do - we just very rarely achieve it. We are putting teams away 4-0 rather than 1-1 like last year I don't see the need to highlight any perceived deficiencies.

The improvements on performance and results are so far tangible and markedly improved. We drew a lot of these games 1-1 last year that we are now winning easily. Enjoy it.


17.) 18 Sep 2017 17:44:21
Beast do u expect us to play perfectly till the end what wins u tittle at times is to be able to win games even when u don't play too well as regards real Madrid they did not outclass us we just didn't take our chances en route to winning for champions league in 2008 Barcelona had all the possesion created all the chances but scholes scored and we won would u say Barcelona outclassed or would u say real Madrid ain't world class because they drew with levante? So far the team has played well there is room for improvement no doubt but first acknowledge the fact we are playing well and are better off than we were last season because games like this last season was a draw.


18.) 19 Sep 2017 05:49:48
Tunnel vision is an unfortunate condition and beast is exhibit A of that phenomenon.

I understand beast's need to berate our team on a weekly basis just because baby don't like jose, but this shtick has gotten very annoying.

Just for a change, try getting behind the team and see what happens.

I will grant you that i was nervous up until the 83rd minute but name one club's fan who won't be given the always tricky 1-0 scoreline, but the point that eludes you is that the score could have been 3-0 by halftime, such was the level of performance from us in the first half an hour and also that this game could have easily been a draw but that fact that the lads kept pushing comes from uptop and that to me is an improvement that fans just can't ignore.

It was the worst ireland performance I ever saw. Wales favourite to get second now.


7.) 03 Sep 2017 13:44:35
Poor, Leahy. Compared to some of the Republic teams over the years. I mean, Aiden feckin' McGeady? I wouldn't say we'd beat you, but it would be a much closer match up these days.


8.) 03 Sep 2017 13:58:14
Crap nanager and a bunch of below average players Leahy so it's about what i expected from ire.
Nou i thinl it would be 50/ 50 nowadays.


9.) 03 Sep 2017 14:10:06
It would be even closer than you think noucamp.

It was up there leahy. I though Staunton was still in charge by the look of it.

Even though sometimes we are not quite up there in technical ability, we have always been able to muster some form of performance. Yesterday there was none of it.

They seriously need to turn it around against a much stronger Serbian team.


10.) 03 Sep 2017 14:11:16
Leahy, watching England is even worse. I feel for the English fans having to watch that dross for I don't know how many years.

At least ireland have given us some decent memories over the years and we beat actually beat the Germans:)


11.) 03 Sep 2017 15:15:17
true Angel, but when you see Georgia passing ireland off the pitch it's bad.


12.) 03 Sep 2017 16:10:12
It sure is. I don't know what it is or why he won't go with hoolahan. Anything is better than Glenn Whelan.


13.) 03 Sep 2017 19:44:02
Watched Spain v Italy after watching Ireland v Georgia, It was like watching two different sports.


14.) 03 Sep 2017 22:05:03
Let's not forget that football isn't Ireland's number 1 sport though. They have hugely overachieved in the past which has made the team now look worse. No they aren't great, but in terms of funds available and the place of football among other sports in the country, we are much worse than Ireland. The England team are pretty embarrassing really, and Kane, who has had a go at supporters who paid their hard earned money to watch that dross, can do one. Over paid, over rated tossers the majority of them. I don't bother watching anymore and that won't change anytime soon.


15.) 03 Sep 2017 23:11:51
how Many epl requlars in the Irish team 3 4 at a push 80% of the teams we play have mire players playing at a higher level than ours.

Ed01 if you have time, I was just wandering did any premier league clubs make a move for pulisic this past window.

Leahy12

{Ed001's Note - I misread that at first as Perisic! There are a lot of clubs who have asked to be informed if Pulisic would consider a move as the player himself had no interest in moving yet. So no one made a move, but if he did become available Man City and Liverpool would defo be interested. I would expect Man Utd and Chelsea would be too as he is a top class talent.}

He's the American lad at Dortmund?


2.) 02 Sep 2017 20:03:25
Cheers ed fine player.
If he was Spanish they would all be in for him.
A rare American top player.

{Ed001's Note - I expect they would all be in for him but his price is going to be insane. His marketing value if he reaches his expected level will be beyond anything ever seen as potentially the first ever American world class player. He has that level of potential and a very smart head on his shoulders, hence going to Germany in the first place and choosing to stay despite the possibility of going to Barcelona being presented to him at least once. If he ever wins the Ballon D'Or, the skies the limit in marketing, the football world have been desperate for a world star from the US.}


3.) 03 Sep 2017 10:57:37
Ummm. obviously u mean 'another worldclass talent' ed.
I know u won't of forgot about johnathon Spector.

{Ed001's Note - ah sorry he got hidden underneath the greatness of one Freddy Adu, so I did forget about him! Apologies to the lad obviously a silly oversight on my part.....}

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.

Leahy12

{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.}

It's like we said we were scoring goal, We were getting forward then we went to an field and parked the bus. a bit frustrating.
Now some might say a good point away to Liverpool but for me you have to have a go.

Leahy12

{Ed025's Note - dead right leahy..

Jred, we have done well all season, won games scored goals,
The issue is we went to anfield against an average back 4 and an average keeper and we didn't test them. we sat back when we should have went at them and had a go.

2-0 United, Liverpool won't get past de gea. herrera will track couthino.
And matic will control the middle and lukkaku will score.

Gacinovic is one to watch out for a young Serbian who has been recommended by matic, can play in midfield and on the right wing.
Jose was at the Serbian game against Austria watching him.
