Just a guess but I reckon Pogba to Barcelona and O Dembele to United is on.
not for a swap but similar to sanchez miki deal.
Think Martial may go to spuds in a similar type deal for Toby in return but I reckon it will actually turn out to be psg where martial ends up.
If the deal with spurs doesn't work out Maguire will be coming which will disappoint me immensely.

Let's wait and see, am I hot or cold eds?


1.) 05 Aug 2018 20:26:09
I’d take Dembele for sure. We’d still need a Pog replacement though.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 20:47:02
If Pogba goes we need sms.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:55:35
Will you then change your name PogtheDog?

4.) 05 Aug 2018 22:37:21
Lol 12 dislikes, a lot of Harry maguire fans in the house. As Pogba said, 'football went home'

5.) 05 Aug 2018 22:49:47
Its got nothing to do with Maguire. Why keep banging on about that. How bitter are you.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 10:18:41
Lemon gelato is the best. Maybe with a scoop of mint choc or hazelnut caramel.

Fyi eds002 on Everton page

{Ed002's Note - Giroud will have talks with who at the weekend? Manchester United are very keen on Lukaku as you know. There is no offer from Chelsea at this time for reasons I have explained. I appreciate everyone is saying the move to Manchester has been agreed but I personally am not so sure everything is quite settled just yet, but I expect it can be. }.




30 Jul 2015 18:26:26
Hi guys, long time reader first time poster kind of thing. Must say thanks to the eds for all the hard work they do in updating the site and providing answers to questions.
Ok felt compelled to post, my aunts husband is a die hard United fan, he's also Dutch and his brother had something to do with psv's academy yonks ago apparently.
Anyways he's a bit crazy which is another story but in the past he's made me look a fool by telling me about deals for Ruud, Ashley Young, de gea and most recently depay weeks before they were done. Before Xmas he told me depay was a certainty and to throw 20 quid on him to move, which I did and made myself 160.
Anyways he's told me yesterday that Felipe Anderson of lazio is a certainty to move this summer, he said there is a defo possibility of us but not a banker. Going on past form, I had to put 20 on it.
I seen this morning then that were linked with both Anderson as de vrij of lazio. It never occurred to me to ask about de vrij to be honest but he never mentioned anything either.
Not telling anyone to put money on it but it is a rumour site and I know how frustrated I am by reading papers so just said I'd throw in my tuppence


1.) 30 Jul 2015 20:13:53
These are the reason I visit!

Cheers for posting

2.) 30 Jul 2015 20:26:12
Cheers for posting mate!
Here's hoping you make some good quids. And welcome to the site. Its crazy out here but we all love United.

3.) 30 Jul 2015 21:11:02
Its being reported in the metro that we have made a bid for both, Rosspique. So I would double down if I were you, as this means its guaranteed. ;)

4.) 30 Jul 2015 21:51:10
Funny that i heard about Anderson from a source on Monday .Trip to the bookies i think

5.) 30 Jul 2015 22:06:45
these are the best sort of posts!

unless we are offloading some midfielders, Mata?, I can't see us going for him

6.) 31 Jul 2015 06:27:29
We're offloading ADM, so if Pedro doesn't come, Anderson is a GO, but I doubt it very much.

7.) 31 Jul 2015 11:11:38
I also heard we would buy Anderson, also Pepe could sign today

8.) 31 Jul 2015 11:26:33
I will lose 20 quid but I actually hope that we don't get him. We have plenty of players who can play in an attacking midfield/ inside forward role at the min. depay, mata, januzaj, perierra, young, even Fellaini.
Young showed last year that with a bit of confidence he can do the business. Mata although not the quickest, made the right side his own in the second half of last year, extremely clever player that we need to make room for.
Depay is going to be a beast wherever he plays but for me is an inside forward and hope and believe we will get to see him there most as the season goes on.
Januzaj has the tools,he just needs to step up now, show consistency, determination and grit.
Pereira I am really really excited about and have been for a long time, I wouldn't loan him out, he's not a player to be involved in a relegation struggle, with class players around him this boy is only going to shine brighter.
Fellaini has been and can be a game changer, he is something totally different than what we have and what most clubs are used to dealing with. If our attacking players are struggling to unlock a 10 man defence, throw on Fellaini off the striker, bombard him with crosses, have no shame in it, we all want to play sexy football but it's all about results and goals

"You should ask the FA to translate".



1.) 08 Nov 2018 01:18:14
He is very quick witted and funny at times but he really does himself no favours at other times. While we are winning games like that and playing the football we are at the moment he can do what he wants though.

2.) 08 Nov 2018 08:40:57
I don't like him, but if you won't pursue allegations of financial fraud on pl but want to appeal against something some said after you lost the case, you deserve to be mocked and ridiculed.



06 Nov 2018 23:44:37
Just watched Every one of Rooneys goals and assists for United.
Sometimes you really forget how much of an outstanding talent that boy was.
I don't think he gets the credit he deserves from our clubs fans. For me there was never any better player than Rooney for Manchester United since he came to the club.

1 thing Jose does not have is a Wayne Rooney. Lukaku may be bang out of form although he does have certain skills, in my eyes he pales in comparison to Wazza who had everything. It's a shame our fans fell out of love with him towards the end,
I was sad when he left United. He epitomized the United team I knew for what 11 years. One also wonders if he had a better United team around him, is it plausible that we let him go to early?

I know a lot won't agree with me on here as I remember how people turned on him towards the end but my gosh what a player, in his prime he would get into my first 11, a striker who could play any position on the pitch.


{Ed025's Note - world class for me ross, as a person a total knobhead who was not helped by his dickhead family, but as a footballer he was top notch mate..

1.) 07 Nov 2018 01:06:39
He was great but to me the best player i have ever watched playing for the club was Paul scholes.

2.) 07 Nov 2018 08:26:09
At his best rooney was great no doubt about that. Scored lots of goals and played for the team always.
Stayed a couple of years too long imo but a great servant nonetheless.

3.) 07 Nov 2018 09:00:08
I smell a Rooney debate coming. When will these ever stop? Are we still going to be debating him in 2052?

4.) 07 Nov 2018 09:22:54
No debate Shapps. Fantastic player, gave his career to United and is our top scorer. Respect where its due.

I will look back fondly on his time at United. Time heals old wounds.

5.) 07 Nov 2018 09:56:18
A good player but declined too early and wasnt at his top level in his last 4 to 5 years at United.

6.) 07 Nov 2018 10:14:45
Why does it have to be a Rooney debate shappy, there's no debate over other players who have contributed a lot lot less to the success of Manchester United.
I can't believe that people would question him, he scored 250 goals for our club, that is an amazing feat which will probably stand for decades, if ever beaten at all.
Ronaldo gets so much more respect from our fans, yet he was only here for 6 years and he left by forcing through a move to Madrid. Rooney was what 13 years at the club, yeah there were a couple of transfer requests but he never went, Ronaldo did.
Rooney was a no.9, a number 10, a bloody central midfielder for the best part of a season.
He owns record after record, look at all the great players that have played here, Rooney sits on top of them all with every record.
I honestly cannot understand why anyone questions him for club or even country.

7.) 07 Nov 2018 10:33:07
Bull that he declined 4-5 years too early. he was in a declining team or a transitioning team, whatever you want to call it.
We had no midfielders good enough under van gaal so he had to play in central midfield for God's sake.
In the 3 seasons before rvp came to the club he scored 84 goals.
In the season before rvp came he scored 34 goals and was once again shunted our to the left or played behind rvp, could one really blame the lad for having his nose out of joint.
Rvp is looked upon so fondly by our fans for his greatness in 1 season, what about Rooneys greatness every season.

8.) 07 Nov 2018 12:22:36
I'm with you Ross, legend.

9.) 07 Nov 2018 13:23:13
Great player, but could have been so much more.

No one can take away his achievements, and he deserves a large amount of praise for them.

However, myself and probably most people feel a little let down by him in the end. If he worked as hard off the pitch and dedicated himself to his sport like Ronaldo did he could have achieved so much more. He also took the kids out of the club on a couple of occasions with transfer requests in order to leech a few extra pounds out of the club. His poor lifestyle meant he declined early, he peaked at 24 rather than 28. That is why at 32 he is playing in America while players such as Scholars and Giggs played on for a further 6-8 years at the highest level. I don't buy the he started young so was going to finish young. Giggs started at 17, yet he showed if you look after yourself in the right way you can go on well into your mid or even late 30's.

In the end Rooney did well, but he could have done so much more. To a certain extent I feel he wasted a huge opportunity that very few get the chance of.



05 Nov 2018 22:20:05
Well folks,
If we were guaranteed 1 win this week. Would you prefer an away win over Juve or an away win over City. A win in either competition would be a big statement. A loss in either would be a decent dent depending on other results.


1.) 05 Nov 2018 22:28:03
Juventus, more chance of winning that than the Prem with some luck.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 22:37:26
City. They've been destroying everyone in their sight and a win there would give us a massive confidence boost and a reminder to the other top 6 that we mean business and a big boost for top 4. If we don't beat juve it's no biggie, I expect us to come second there either way. Reckon we'll get past Valencia.

3.) 06 Nov 2018 06:30:03
City. We could lose to Juve and still get through, and beating City would have a massive impact on the players.

4.) 06 Nov 2018 08:23:41
City without question.

5.) 06 Nov 2018 10:01:24
City - the league is more important.

6.) 06 Nov 2018 13:55:53
City without question regardless of circumstance.

7.) 06 Nov 2018 15:43:24
City most def!



10 Oct 2018 23:54:15
Ed002 can I please ask you if the story the mirror ran on Jose being sacked came from a legitimate source within the club.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea where they get their stories from about Mr Mourinho being sacked last Saturday and replaced by Zizou from. You should ask them.}

1.) 11 Oct 2018 11:58:27
Thanks ed002 you seem one of if not the most knowledgeable here and not just opinionated and there seems to be a lot of opinions being dressed up as knowledge at times which can be misleading.
Thanks again.



06 Oct 2018 11:28:42
Was just thinking of Sanchez and why he is tanking so much at United.
I watched a lot of his highlight reels and noticed that literally everything outstanding he did at Arsenal involved Mesut Ozil in some way. The one thing that was always said about Sanchez is that he worked hard and to be fair I think the same can still be said of him at United but he is not getting into those positions, those little pockets of space where he used to be so lethal at Arsenal.
Now granted we don't have Ozil but we do have Mata, we do have Pereirra, we do have Fred. Instead of giving pogba this free role why not play one of the above 3, my preference would be Fred or Mata.
Drop Pogba as we can't play him and one of the above, or play him in a deeper role but 2 years on and I still have no idea whether he can play that role or play Matic/ Fellaini and Hererra in midfield.
I still can't believe our cm is as limited as it is all we seem to have is big slow defensive midfielders or players who are more attack/ No.10 minded. We don't seem to have any true all round/ box2box midfielder.
Mata seems to have been totally given the cold shoulder this season, I don't really understand why. I don't really understand why if Pogba causes so much trouble for the manager why he isn't just dropped, no way Fergie would be starting the likes of Pogba.
Jose demoted schweinsteiger to the reserves for like 6 mths 2 years ago and there was none of this crap coming out in the media.
Drop Pogba, what have you got to lose Jose, by all accounts he's going to cost you your job in any case, why are you still playing him.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 12:26:57
We have the same problem for any of our attacking players. It's simply that we have a static midfield, poor full backs (until recently with Shaw doing what we need) and absolutely no idea how to break teams down because all we seem to work on is defensive shape.

When you compound this with LVG and Jose both preferring to counter the opposition rather than attack the opposition relentlessly it means we always attack with far too few players. Martial looks bright occassionally but he has to beat 3 men to do anything.

Depay, ADM, Falcao, RVP, Rooney, Mata, Miki, Rash, Lukaku, Sanchez, Martial - all of them and more have suffered because they have so little happening around them that they have no room and because we attack so infrequently evey time they mess up it looks far worse. Everything is so slow and predictable - new attack focused manager and we can get back to bitching about how poor we are defensively and not worry about it because we are scoring 4-5 goals a game.

Matic/ Pogba/ Fellaini in midfield is an absolute joke. Pogba causes more confusion than anything, never releasing the ball at the right time, always looking for the Rooney QB pass. All three job about most of the time. We need some consistency to our team selection so full backs can build relationships with wide attackers as well. Valencia is not good enough, best to blood Dalot now or go back into the market for Sidibe. We need a proper RW as well, Fred and midfield engine (Herrera short term), sack off Matic as we don't need a holder if Pogba is playing as we will dominate the ball and our CB's can double up on 1 attacker.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 13:39:49
Beast i agree that the movement in the final 3rd is awful. But that is not joses form all his teams have always had great movement and players breaking from midfield.
Hazard oscar willian duff robben di maria drogba costa lampard deco ballack the list goes on.
So i'm quite sure he doesn't coach them to be so static. Its not been a trait of any of his previous teams.
I watch players like rash martial and lukaku dropping off laying the ball off it goes wide and those guys are still ambling towards the 18 yard line. Not busting a gut to get on the end of any potential cross. i'm quite sure he doesn't tell them not to get into goal scoring positions through work rate and desire or through football intelligence.
Nobody running on in midfield onto breaking balls like lampard ballack oscar etc i'm sure he doesn't tell them not to make runs.
Im sure he doesn't tell valencia to go backwards every time he gets the ball or whack every cross as hard as he can.
Its very frustrating.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 14:14:10
Ken - whoever he plays in there we look the same to me, but the 3 jogging giants take the Michael. Managers typically get more defensive as they get older (do you think LVG teams of the past played as negatively as we did under him? ) . Even the great SAF started to get a bit negative with their strategy towards the end.

A major problem is the new breed of manager studied Jose, he was the best. They have all learned how to combat how he sets his teams up, couple that with him getting even more defensive, it means our team isn't fluid - we move in blocks. In 10 years time Pep will have to evolve or be found out.

I agree completely that there is so little movement, I watched the other night and without the ball too many of our players were walking. They all try hard when the opposition have it typically, it's when we have it that we are too lazy. Players not trusting one another, not thinking 3-4 passes ahead or running for that pass later in the move because they firstly don't want to risk being out of position (wrath of Jose) and secondly doubt we will retain the ball for 3-4 passes. All our chances seem to come from opponent mistakes or somebody having to beat 2-3 men to free up room.

In terms of players not following his instructions - then he has to go. Why does he keep picking players that willfully ignore him or are incapable of doing simple things? Another sign of a manager leaving their prime is they look for favourites and obfuscate - Valencia should not be playing on form neither should have of them.

The whole thing is so frustrating. Hopefully we get some resolution one way or the other soon. Jose of 10 years ago would have Pogba playing with the reserves imo.

4.) 06 Oct 2018 14:29:51
I agree on pogba.
Imo jose should have resigned when the window closed. He was on a hiding to nothing. He needed certain players out and it didn't happen.

5.) 06 Oct 2018 16:51:31
He wants his payout mate. He doesn't care about turning things around, he can BS his way out of anything as the media will lap up anything he says.

6.) 06 Oct 2018 17:22:25
Midfield 3 of pogba, Matic and mctominay tells me we can expect exactly the same thing we've seeing all season. No vision from midfield, poor service to the front men, boring football and a lack of chances. If this is his final game I feel he's going out with a whimper.

Or. and just hear me out here. possibly just possibly. the players are not good enough.
Is our first team good enough?

De gea. yes
Young. no
Smalling. no
Lindelof. possibly
Shaw. was a possibly and now looks a probably
Matic. no
Fellaini. no
Herrera. yes. at times
Martial. yes. at times
Rashford. no. not yet. possibly will be
Lingard. probably not. possibly. squad player

That team that played city is just not good enough in my opinion. they try but sometimes are just not good enough.

I see we are linked with Arnautovic again. I'd take him. he is much better than anyone we can play on the right wing.

We need to see Dalot at rb.
We need a world class cb to replace smalling.

The set up was right.
Game management was right.
Substitutions were right.

Players gave their all.
Concentration levels were high, we looked switched on the whole game.

Martial done exactly the job Jose asked of him defensively and was standout offensively.

Mata yet again Kickstarter the comeback with some magic. I love that little Spaniard.

Juve had enough chances to win the match, Cuadrado should have scored.
However what resilience from this team yet again.
I think that 5 times we've gone behind in the last 5 or 6 matches and we haven't lost 1 of them. This team is playing for the manager. No question.

And the reds go marching on.
