Hi Ed's, can you confirm the rumours regarding the Manchester City Rumour Page approaching Ronnie to sign for them til the end of the summer transfer window?

Ports

{Ed001's Note - it is done deal, just awaiting Ronnie's signature on the dotted line....}


1.) 21 Jun 2016 12:17:27
I lead a sad life unfortunately Ports and Manchester United is my one and only love!

I may annoy a lot or if not all of you, but, I'm here! Sorry!

Ronnie.


2.) 21 Jun 2016 12:37:26
Ha, no need to apologise Ronnie, good to see a fan with as much passion as you do.


3.) 21 Jun 2016 12:47:30
Cheers Ports! 👍.


4.) 21 Jun 2016 13:02:51
Ronnie,

Keep posting buddy. Fans like you and fresh add a lot of value to the site.


5.) 21 Jun 2016 13:12:38
Keep going Ronnie, to be honest you are not doing anything different from most of the tabloids. taking a punt on a player coming in with the hope that one of them is correct. Then they can claim an exclusive.
Your suggestions are just a little more random and I don't know most of them.
I enjoy everyone on here, regardless of whether we agree. Beauty of being a fan. we have differing opinions.


6.) 21 Jun 2016 13:26:22
Keep it up Ronnie. Got to admire how you have got under the skin of a minority.


7.) 21 Jun 2016 14:33:00
How about Ronnie for England?


8.) 21 Jun 2016 16:25:04
Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh, matron!

Evening Ed's, kudos on the Benzema shout regarding the possibility of a bid being made as this has come out in some of the media today. My question is, if possible to offer an answer or opinion would be where United would stand against other clubs in the transfer. Obviously money is not going to be an issue, I should imagine we are ahead of Liverpool but I suspect Chelsea would be interested so do any of you have any insight or heard any murmurs on who Benzema would potentially favour? I'm not sure how his relationship with Mourinho was which would be a factor. Thanks for any views.

Ports

{Ed004's Note - Impossible to answer because I don't know what Benzema thinks. If he's available a number of clubs will be interested but I can't see him leaving.}


1.) 12 May 2015 15:22:40
havent we tried to sign him in the past and he said no?


 

 

08 Apr 2015 16:39:12
I see a lot of people discussing the striker situation with RVP rumoured to be sold and the likelihood of Falcao not being signed. The name mentioned quite persistently at the moment is Cavani. Regular names include Ronaldo and Benzema, Schmeichel mentioned Ibrahimovic but one name that I haven't seen mentioned is Lewandowski? It was only in Feb when rumours (and I appreciate they are only rumours) that he was potentially unhappy at Bayern? Personally I think he'd be ideal, a proper number 9 for Rooney to play off. Perhaps an Ed could give any information on these rumours and if there is any potential development with his position at Bayern.

Apologise if this has been dealt with.

Ports

{Ed002's Note - Lewandowski won't be moving to Manchester United.

Evening Gents,

Just a heads up on the under 21's game tonight versus Spurs, good chance to see Januzaj turn Zeki Fryers inside out and back to front!

Don't think Powell is in the squad so hopefully see the lad against West Ham.

Ports

1.) Lets not hurt him too much eh? just a broken leg? something small?


2.) In the squad to sit on the bench for 90 mins probably.


 

 

21 Feb 2013 15:17:07
Hi Ed's,

Just wondering if any of you knew the situation regarding Erik Torres?

Haven't seen him mentioned for a while and used the search function but last mention was early August.

Is he still an option or did we opt for Henriquez instead or are we just monitoring til smmer or further down the line?

Appreciate any news/thoughts etc. {Ed002's Note - I don't know of any interest right now and he has been, apparently, having a poor season.}

Ports

1.) No suprise there, his last name is torres! xD

Evening. Seen tonight we've linked to Forsberg I think as an alternative to Perisic. Seen his name mentioned on here I believe but can anyone offer an analysis on him please. Never heard of the lad to be honest. Cheers.

Ports

1.) 26 Jul 2017 22:23:42
He's just what we need.


2.) 26 Jul 2017 22:47:47
Right footed left winger had a bucket load of assists last season. He is 25 but could be expensive as he extended his contract recenntly. He reminds me of cryuff. Not saying he is thst good just his build and drive, brilliant player would prefer him to perisic myself to be honest but not very physical.


3.) 26 Jul 2017 23:06:52
Never seen him play but apparently RBL are sound financially so would probably cost an absolute bomb not that it would bother me what he costs it would just give the usual suspects something else to moan about 😀.


4.) 26 Jul 2017 23:10:14
Haha. Another average player. But world class as we're in for him.


5.) 26 Jul 2017 23:46:39
Depay the second.
I read today depay was returning to United.
There should have been a written warning with that rumour, harmful if swallowed.


6.) 27 Jul 2017 00:20:03
22 assists this season.


7.) 27 Jul 2017 06:48:21
I looks like another winger who does not like standing on the wing! I think this is why Peresic is so desired by Mourinho. Will add proper width and string enough to track back as support.


8.) 27 Jul 2017 07:16:14
I think Forsberg will be the start of the domino effect.


 

 

26 Jul 2017 09:23:33
Good morning, I wanted to tell people of a quote from Jack Charlton about Sir Alf Ramsey during the 1966 World Cup. Ramsey had not picked Charlton during the build up to the World Cup but at the World Cup chose Charlton to partner Moore. Charlton asked Ramsey why now is he choosing him to play and Ramsey's response was simple "I don't alway pick the best players but the best players for the system I want to play! "

So for the people who want this player or that player, trust Jose has a system and he wants players that can help the system work, even if this isn't the flashy player some people crave for. This will bring us more success then individual's within a team.

Afternoon. I mentioned him the other day and I have to say once again, last night Scott Mctominay came on in the second half and although as a team the second half wasn't the best, I thought Mctominay looked good on the ball, not overwhelmed and won a couple of headers in the centre of the park. I really think this boy could be the answer to replace Carrick long term.

Ports

1.) 24 Jul 2017 18:32:14
Looked decent, Ports. Kept it simple, couple of decent crosses. Looks confident on the ball. Hope he gets a bit of first team action here and there this season.


2.) 24 Jul 2017 18:33:43
I really like the lad, he certainly has caught my eye on this pre-season tour.

In recent years I have not seen a united youth graduate that has made me take notice, but McTominay has impressed me. He reminds me a bit more of Ander Herrera, has good vision and creativity, but willing to put a shift in and do the dog work.

The thing that really impressed me though last night was his cross for Fellaini, which the big wig absolutely fluffed. It's been a while since I've seen a united player whip a ball in like that. Maybe we do practice crossing at the club.


3.) 24 Jul 2017 21:29:10
Ports, early days yet for Mctominay. He does fit the profile for Carrick's position, with his size and decent ability on the ball. But it seems that defensive midfield might be one the hardest positions to put a young player. So much reading of the game is required to play there. The game is 360 degrees around but also with a lot at stake if you give the ball away.


4.) 24 Jul 2017 23:05:31
Sadly McTominay looks like so many Untied youth players. Not good enough for United but will be a very solid PL player for someone else.


5.) 25 Jul 2017 11:41:22
I think Jose may like him big lad, good passer of the ball and doesn't overplay when doesn't need to, I have watched him quite a bit over the last year and he is getting better all the time think league cup may be for him and a couple of others .

Good Morning. So although so far a little frustrating with only 2 through the door, I am pleased that this season United and Woodward are now standing it would seem a lot more firmer in transfer dealings and not being mugged off by Madrid in particular and also Inter. I think Jose has a big part to play in this also especially with his comments about not spending all summer chasing Ronaldo, it would seem Jose get's it! I see quotes such as ''well it's not my money so I don't care'' but United like all clubs are also a business so we shouldn't be held to ransom with fees. If I was a millionaire (I'm not fyi) I would not pay twice the price of 75% more than a house is valued at because I have loads of money. Hopefully this stronger stance will benefit United moving forward in future windows and we will get players worth their value.

With all this in mind, if Chelsea want to play silly buggers over Matic then I think United should explore the option of signing Matudi. I have read reports PSG are willing to sell him and and if Matic, Dier and Fabinho are all difficult options to achieve then Matudi for me would be ideal to sit in with Pogba and Herrera.

As for Perisic, I would not want to see Martial involved in any part of the deal, not even a loan. I'd rather United focus on the CM and really strengthen that area and go with our wide options we have at the club.

As far as the kids are concerned, TFM is a player that people are touting for the CDM role, but I like the look of Scott McTominay. Although young and a bit inexperienced, he looks like he could be a great CM, big build, good on the ball, looks fairly composed, I think he could be one to look out for.

All just my opinions though, I expect Woodward will now go and spend £60Million on Persic and £80Million on Dier now I have posted this haha.

Ports

1.) 20 Jul 2017 10:25:09
We weren't exactly firm with Everton Ports, we got absolutely fleeced imo!


2.) 20 Jul 2017 11:13:34
So if lukaku becomes top goal scorer and we win the title would you say we got fleesed.

I don't understand why people get so bothered about how much someone cost.


3.) 20 Jul 2017 11:40:23
Ports, we don't actually have any natural wide players. I can't think of a single winger we have at the club. A big problem we had last season was running into traffic and moves breaking down because we allowed the opposition defence to sit so tight as we had nobody fixed to the touchline.


4.) 20 Jul 2017 12:44:01
Redneckred, well it depends on how you look at it. For me, Lukaku is 24 so if he plays for us until he is 30, that is 6 years. He's scored goals in the premier league and I'd like to think he will score more for us than Everton due to us creating more chances than Everton. So would you be happy paying £15Million at the start of each season for a striker who will score you between 15/ 20 and 25/ 30 goals that season? I would be happy with that. The fact that Madrid sold Morata to Chelsea for what I understand is less than what we offered shows we aren't going to get mugged off again by them so I would suggest yes Woodward has stood firm.

Wazza, like I said, I'd rather go with our options than get fleeced by Inter. Maybe our options aren't out and out wingers and I don't know much about Perisic to say whether he is or not but with going with what it would seem a 4-3-3 formation, with Martial on the left, like Henry used to do, he can start out wide and drift in when running at players, same with Miki on the right or Lingard and Mata. By strengthening our CM when these players drift in field this will create the space for Shaw and Valencia to give us the width as having a Matudi type player will offer more protection defensively to allow the full backs to be more attacking. The "wide" players also have the ability to go on the outside as well so I don't think not having Perisic would be that big a loss compared to a CM. obviously he would strengthen us but not at the expense of paying more than he is worth which is the point of the post.


5.) 20 Jul 2017 12:51:32
Still think Perisic is coming in sooner or later and Jose's comments on numbers might be a smokescreen/ warning that we are not desperate. but think there's a chance on another 2 inc A KEEPER IF REAL COME CALLING -HOPEFULLY NOT.


 

 

16 Jul 2017 14:16:00
Interesting how Jose used Periera last night as a deep lying CM getting the ball off of the defence and starting up attacks. He certainly has the range of passing to do the role just whether he can get a good defence part of his game. His positional sense and game understanding certainly looked ok. Hope the boy gets a chance this season.

Ports

1.) 16 Jul 2017 14:29:46
I personally like that type of player in that position.

{Ed004's Note - I think this is a big season for Periera - him and Shaw could be like new signings if they sort their forms out}


2.) 16 Jul 2017 14:39:18
He is a talented lad would be nice to see him make the step up.


3.) 16 Jul 2017 14:49:28
I agree jred. People will no doubt be very against it because they want a powerful CDM but Carrick should have shown people that you don't need a "destroyer" but a football brain and a range of passing is so effective.


4.) 16 Jul 2017 14:59:22
Ports I would go for a Carrick type all day long.


5.) 16 Jul 2017 16:09:55
He was used in that role last season during his loan. Not all matches but in the second half of the season if I remember correctly.


6.) 16 Jul 2017 20:22:30
It's the same position Jose played him last year in preseason against Wigan. So maybe that is where Jose feels he is best suited.
He is an interesting talent in that his skillset allows him to play several positions while his talent allows him to play well in those.
If he can up his work rate and defensive contribution then he could have a break out year this season.


7.) 16 Jul 2017 20:28:06
Thought he looked decent in that role last night, and like every other Utd youngster, I hope he makes it with us. I noticed he'd bulked up a little while he was away, which will help him if he's been earmarked for that particular role. His relatively slight weight had been my only previous concern about him. I know it was a poor LA team, but on the flip side, it was only our first start.

If I had to choose on performances I would still opt for Young over Depay as he is pretty reliable however I still think Depay can and will come good and Jose seems to see potential from comments he has made so unfortunately that is another player Young is behind. I think Young is to good to just be a bit part player and he deserves to get regular football but just not with us. I do like Young as an individual though from interviews and he seems to love being a United player so I hope he gets a good club should he leave.

I think that would be a good move for Periera, I think Middlesbrough will try and play ''good'' football and he'll see a lot of the ball. I just hope if he does go out on loan, he gets game time unlike some other kids who have gone out and got no more time then they would have if they'd stayed with us!

I think a move to Sunderland would be good for Fellaini. Never thought he was good enough to do the role he did at Everton for us and we had better players in that role and he certainly is not a DM so we didn't really suit his game.

Might have a look at him for the Fantasy Football Team if he goes though, could get back amongst the goals although not sure the cards will stop coming his way!

I'm undecided on him Mort. Yes he has talent but in 2 years he'll want a move to Spain in my opinion. Not been overly impressed with him at the Euro's either. If we were to go all out for a marquee signing and splash serious money, I'd love a strong push for Bale instead!

So is Brozovic and genuine and realistic target? Could this be why the Perisic deal is dragging and we're trying to get both sorted? Not heard of the boy before to be honest. Sorry if I have missed these discussions.

I really liked Barkley when he came on the scene, thought he could go on and be one of the best England players we produced since Gazza, he has so much potential and natural ability but at some point he has to make it count and recently it seems he hasn't. I wouldn't want to spend big on "potential". I know it would never happen but if we could loan him for a season and see if he could develop with us and then pay a fee, similar to the Renato Sanches deal that Milan I think proposed then I think it would be worth getting him in but that will never happen.
