Hi Edd. Just a quick question. Do you think the Januzaj loan deal will lead to him leaving or do you think he will come back next season with a season of top flight football behind him. Just seems odd to be linked with wingers when we still have this lad on the books.

Luket

{Ed002's Note - It is too early to say what will happen - and it may well be driven by the desire for first team football.}


1.) 27 Nov 2015 12:57:37
thanks. i hope he stays.


2.) 27 Nov 2015 13:43:38
I don't think Januzaj's future is as a winger. He is a number 10 who wants to use skill rather than pace. He has very little in the way of pace, like Mata.


3.) 27 Nov 2015 21:42:35
Not meaning to slag off Dortmund because they have a very good team but he's not getting much game time there and I'm starting to think it was a bad move. Considering it was his decision apparently. If he stayed I'm sure he would be getting more game time? Like anyone I always wonder what could have been and he could have starting playing really well when others are struggling although probably not haha.

Hi Eds. More of a question about how a club works really. Sorry if this is simple but i'm struggling to understand why this is a thing. Woodward seems to struggle in transfer markets but seems great at the commercial side. Is there any reason why we couldn't bring someone to solely focus on the transfers? An experienced negotiater that can get the deals done while Woodward continues on with what he is good at?

Luket

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why you think he struggles. He doesn't pick the players.}


1.) 08 Aug 2018 10:38:15
Maybe because we've only really signed one first team player (Fred) Ed? Just over 24hrs of the window and key areas haven't been strengthed, frustrating, hopeful from your previous comments though.

{Ed002's Note - There is a lot of time available still.}


2.) 08 Aug 2018 10:52:04
I don't get the panic. Yes we only have a day left but Ed has said plenty of times there will be incomings and outgoings. I'm sure things are in place, let's just see how it unfolds, not long to go let's enjoy it.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 11:16:52
He came in when Moyes did and since then business has always been hard to come by. Granted football has evolved but some clubs find it so easy while we are still struggling with just over a day left. Liverpool for example may have overspent on some players but some of their deals have been great. Take Toby for example. He wants to leave and we want him. Spurs are going to have to sell eventually and surely they would rather get it done early so they could spend the money and we would want him early so he could be fit and ready to play our first game. But here we are with one day left and although it looks very likely nothing is ever sure until its confirmed.

Maybe its just Mourinhos comments that put him in a bad light in my mind.

Woodward is great at the commercial side so why not let him concentrate fully on that and have someone work fully on ins and outs.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 12:30:29
Luket,

Every player Liverpool sign is the best thing since sliced bread in the press and from the Liverpool fans. Fabinho - world class (didnt even make the Brazil squad), Keita - world class (no prem experience and imagine most have never even seen him play), Shaqiri - world class back up (just got relegated with Stoke and has left clubs previously because he wasn't first choice), Allison - world class keeper (no prem experience, not even that much top level experience, played at Anfield once in his career and conceded 5+ against them) .

So yea, they might do ok, but don't be fooled into believing all of their signings are the best of the best, if we want top players then it takes time.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 11:17:09
Ed’s,
Who do you think is most likely to move at this stage?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer “most likely” questions.}


6.) 08 Aug 2018 13:06:06
GDS2 By your logic then Fred has no premier experience and didn't get a minute of football at the world cup, Dalot is still very young with no experience and Grant couldn't get into the same stoke team that got relegated (granted he will probably never get a game anyway) so are they not good signings? I think the players we have brought in are good but compared to other teams in the top 6 (bar Spurs) we haven't strengthened as much.

I'm not saying liverpool's players are the best in the world but they have done very good business and relatively quickly so everyone has trained with the squad and is ready for the season starting. even if we sign someone today chances are it will take them a week or 2 to get up to speed.

At the end of the day time will tell if what we have done is good enough. I'm not Mourinho's biggest fan but if the manager doesn't think he has what he needs then that worries me.


7.) 08 Aug 2018 13:10:34
Who do you think will move on Ed? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - See previous posts about who is available.}


8.) 08 Aug 2018 13:26:55
Also not sure what anyone else thinks but i would have taken Shaqiri for 13 million too.


9.) 08 Aug 2018 13:57:03
Gds, hand on heart do you honestly believe anything you wrote in your post? Its embarrassing to write off Liverpool's purchases the way you have.
Let's see what happens during the season, i would like you to admit to underestimating them come April next year, by the same score, we'll all hold our hands up if they fail miserably and United win the league.
Your argument that keita, allisson, fabinho have no PL experience is laughable. How much PL experience have Fred, Dalot and Grant got between them?
Optimism is great, but blind optimism is what has got us into this mess.


10.) 08 Aug 2018 14:19:24
AAA,

I have no idea how Liverpool's signings will do just like you don't, everything I said about each of them players is a fact though so yes I believe what I said. I was just trying to make the point that every time Liverpool sign a player he is the best thing since sliced bread even if they know nothing about him, the humour and fun on this website has totally disappeared recently and I will soon be going the same way as a few of the others and the reason most posts are so negative at the moment.

Supporting a football team is a hobby, I support united through thick and thin, I don't spend all my life worrying about transfers and I enjoy going to the games, people seem so upset and annoyed all the time about everything, I apologise for not living my life like that.

Sorry to be that guy but for me its time to remove Mourinho. I would rather keep a happy Pogba, Martial, Shaw, Rashford ect and have someone encourage and build a team rather than Mourinho spending hundreds of millions on short term "success". His current attitude just stinks of his last season at Chelsea. He seems to have already lost the players and it won't be too long before he has a go at the doctor.

Luket

1.) 06 Aug 2018 15:52:16
Lost the players based on what evidence? They all seem happy to me.


2.) 06 Aug 2018 16:03:42
Martial Is desperate to leave, Pogba's agent has been meeting with other teams, Luke Shaw can't put a foot right, I'm assuming Rashford can't be happy with his game time last year. The whole defense often gets bad mouthed in the media.

Granted a lot of this may just be paper talk but If my manager at work was consistently bad mouthing me, my work, my work ethic and saying that me and my colleagues are not not good enough then I don't think I would be very happy.

If I had a choice of a happy Pogba and Martial staying or Mourinho at this time I would much rather keep the first 2. Another manager may be able to bring the best out of them.


3.) 06 Aug 2018 16:12:57
If a player isn't happy playing for Man Utd then they need to leave. I didn't realize that we are now in the making random players happy business.


4.) 06 Aug 2018 16:13:13
Luket, rashford is still young and raw and is not expected to shoulder the responsibility of starting every game. Seeing him being given the no10 I think puts to bed the idea he may want out and a lack of faith from the club. As the Donald would say 'fake news'.


5.) 06 Aug 2018 16:45:45
Luket

What are you talking about? Jose out is one thing but to list players that uve decided are unhappy.

Pogba never really wanted utd, justb a stepping stone, shaw is useless and has been under 4 managers, martial could fall in a bucket of tits and look like he only managed to suck his thumb - he's that miserable naturally and rash, rash is home grown and loves utd. he's seemes happy in the actual photos I've seen in the rags.


6.) 06 Aug 2018 17:05:22
Question is, will any new manager get more out of the current squad? I assume the reason there are no new ins is that to buy we need to sell. In which case, name a manager (in the top half) who has come in and not spent heavily to generate better success on the pitch? The big challenge we have had this closed season is that we haven't been able to shift the fringe players who need moving on so that we can give more game time to the next generation and hire quality. Both the World Cup and the fact our fringe players are on massive wage packets has meant no new ins. That's not the managers fault as he isn't involved in negotiating wages.


7.) 06 Aug 2018 17:19:06
Maybe you're all right. I have never wanted to see Mourinho in the job since day one so my judgement is probably clouded. I'm 29 and this is the only season in my life that I am coming in with no hope of winning the league.

I really think we would be better off with a young exciting manager who can build a squad rather than demanding over £100 million be spent each year and then ignoring the ones we brought the year prior. Mourinho's negativity and attitude just sucks the life out of the club for me.

Fergie always said that no one is or should be bigger than the team. Mourinho for me is proving that wrong. No matter the score on the weekend its always his comments that make the news.


8.) 06 Aug 2018 17:45:25
Rashford not happy with games? Does he want to play less, can't play many more than he did last season. I'm sure he was out most used outfield player for us.


9.) 06 Aug 2018 17:58:21
From the bench!


10.) 06 Aug 2018 18:21:05
Mikeymike there are a few managers. I know everyone always goes to Leicester winning the league, Spurs have had a net spend of about 20 million since Poch took over and they have progressed. Burnley have improved a lot with very little spend. I know our squad is not as good as City's but i believe it should be preforming a lot better. I don't think the players fit the styles Mourinho wants to play.

In regard to the transfers I totally agree we need to clear space but I worry with the players we are linked with if we are moving forward. Maguire had a great world cup and a decent season last year but does that warrant the massive fee or will we just end up with another player in 2 years we can't move on due to wages. Boateng has had injury issues for the past few years. Dalot looks promising but is unknown at this level. Fred looks very good though.


11.) 06 Aug 2018 18:29:18
Indeed Danny C. Maybe he wanted to start for other clubs too.


12.) 06 Aug 2018 21:07:14
Luket

Did the club put Beckham before SAF? If they had what would have been the outcome? If you put players in front of the manager it is a very steep slope, next manager does something the players done like or asks them to do something they don’t want to do they know a quick sulk gets the manager the boot, then it will repeat. The board should make decisions on the tenure of a manager but not because some players sulk.


13.) 06 Aug 2018 22:37:06
True Redman. Beckham thought he was bigger than the team so he was moved on. SAF knew that nobody should be bigger or more important than the team or the club yet in the media everyday we don't hear about the results or the players we only ever hear about one thing, Mourinho.

Granted I have only lived through 4 Man Utd managers but i don't remember any manager at any team that has that sort of influence.


14.) 07 Aug 2018 02:08:37
luket. haven't you noticed that about 90% of "stories" from so the called "news" media are just negative trash stories. don't read too much into it. a good example was the martial and his newborn. journos (if you can call the leeches journos) tried to make it look like martial was missing training. its unfortunate but bad news seems to sell better. creating drama for profits sake.


 

 

06 Aug 2018 15:47:58
Hi Eds, Do you know if there is any truth to Kovacic rejecting Man Utd due to not liking the style of football we play?

Not quite sure where he would fit anyway. Unless he was supposed to replace Pogba?

Luket

{Ed004's Note - It is highly likely that it was made up to sell newspapers}


1.) 06 Aug 2018 15:51:26
Thanks Ed. I thought that may be the case.


 

 

26 Jan 2016 15:14:03
Does anyone think any Man Utd transfer business will be done in this window or are we saving up the money for a new manager in the summer?

Luket

1.) 26 Jan 2016 16:21:36
Full back on loan maybe. No more cash for LGV.


2.) 26 Jan 2016 17:19:39
If we are interested in Banega as reports suggest now would be the time to do it - It would cost very little in a transfer fee as he is going on a free in summer. Perhaps a full back on loan too, there is alleged interest in Van der Wiel who is getting next to no play time at PSG - Now we are out the CL they would have no problems in him joining.

Nothing major though, not with 5 days to go.


3.) 26 Jan 2016 18:43:18
some super agent thinks we might see late deals for berahino and the lazio guy.


 

 

19 Aug 2015 12:04:18
So it looks like Pedro is off to Chelsea then. Why do we take so long with these things. Same thing with Otamendi. If there is a reasonable release fee just pay it and get the deal done.

Luket

1.) 19 Aug 2015 12:24:02
I'm not that bothers about both to be fair. Only issue with Pedro not signing is that we may be stuck for a while with Mata on the right. That said, maybe Muller or Robben could be on the cards.

Otamendi - not worth the money and the fact we play with 2 holding midfielders means that our CB's won't be as exposed. We just need to move Mata and Rooney out of the starting 11, I also don't like the look of Romero.


2.) 19 Aug 2015 12:30:18
I'm sure if we really wanted both players then deals would have been wrapped up by now.

Maybe pursuing alternative targets or waiting to confirm CL qualification . or both.


3.) 19 Aug 2015 13:02:04
Agre beast but if we had another top CB maybe we wouldn't need two holding MF and can play a more attacking creating midfielder to help us going forward.

Seems a bit odd really that if Villareal wanted Rojo and we brought one of their defenders in Bailly why Rojo wasn't involved in the deal.

FM have had some duds but they have also been very good. Go back to some of the early 2000s games and you can get 16 year old Tevez and Macherano. in some of the more recent games there was Freddy Guarin from a Colombian second division side. You could get a 15 year old Wayne Rooney. James Rodriguez, Kovacic, Modric all had very high potential at a young age on the game.

The first part is a rhetorical question and the second part is a question. Both use question marks so I would assume Ronnie's post is correct.

I like the idea of 3 5 2 with Valencia and Young playing as wing backs so they can attack more and we rely less on them defensively. Matic holding, Fred and Pogba as box to box midfielders.
