This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}

2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!

3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}

4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

Last year Adidas teased with the Pogba-United ads, this year Huawei has started it with Greizmann. Did anyone see it yet? Jose calling Griezmann.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 01 Jun 2017 19:59:11
He doesn't answer the call tho, is it a sign?

A trend setter in the making.



21 Jan 2017 09:17:01
We not going for Fonte. Imagine the confidence that must be flowing through Jones and Rojo right now. What this also tells us is that Jose is looking towards the future rather than signing Fonte. Lindelof may be?

Must be going big in the summer. If he does succeed and brings in his players, I am scared to think the line up we will have come August.

Next year could be the year when Jose brings United back to the level where we truly belong.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 21 Jan 2017 11:53:26
Maybe he didn't want to pay that amount for someone who is 33? Looking to the future as you said.

2.) 21 Jan 2017 13:08:56
£8 million is rather steep. The way Jones and Rojo have been playing and Bailly at the ACON: and Smalling in the bench then would he really have got much game time?

3.) 21 Jan 2017 13:16:59
I don't think its the 8m that was the problem, it was him wanting a 2.5 year deal. With him 33 already that would mean he would be under contract until he's 36. He is a very very good player, but at his age his legs could go on him at any point, next season could very well be a season too far for him tk play at the highest level.

I think if he was after a 1.5 year contract with an option for another year then maybe we would have gone in for him. Apparently the length of contract was the stumbling block over renewing his contract at Southampton.

4.) 21 Jan 2017 22:21:39
He's no better than what we have. Would have been a very average signing. It's not goals against we are struggling with. It's the profligacy up is the main problem.

5.) 22 Jan 2017 21:48:41
Eric he is much better than smalling and rojo. He is a quality defender that would have worked for 1 year, 2 max.

6.) 22 Jan 2017 23:23:05
Agree to disagree. The fact we didn't go in for him suggests Jose agrees with me though.

7.) 23 Jan 2017 11:18:05
Unless you have spoken to jose, then you can't know that.

8.) 26 Jan 2017 23:19:55
Don't need to - we didn't go in for him!

I am reading quite a few post so on here that read we should test Arsenal with a 60m for Sanchez, we should test Spurs with a 100m for Kane. Similarly there were some for Alli, Aubemayang, Lewandoeski was mentioned.

If I am not wrong, in the past one month only, Ed002 has given us the detail on how the players are signed and the bid or the "test" is only the 4th or the 5th step in the process, provided that the first steps have been passed successfully. Now with all these players, the first step ie the player doesn't want to come to United has failed. So, my question to all such great ones who want to test with bids is WHY?

For me I would rather pay 70m for a player who wants to come and play for us rather than test for players who don't want to. I don't care who is better, I would rather have committed players playing for United rather than buying superstars who would rather live in London.

Shan. If it was only as simple as that! It bothers me to read "mourinho trying to convince so and so to join", but unfortunately, the world we live in has changed! Players have a big say and they are pampered beyond belief.

2.) 15 Jun 2017 07:19:41
No disrespect schmid, but the players should have the say where they play, it's their career and life like any of us. 👍🏻.

3.) 15 Jun 2017 07:21:33
Shan while i agree with what you are saying i think most of those posts are due to griezmann not happening, had griezmann signed most would be happy with what we are currently targeting but with us going from griezmann to perisic, i think most people want a similar calibre player rather than have us try to sign a fiat because we couldn't get the ferrari.

4.) 15 Jun 2017 10:19:48
I agree, I think some people think you just pick up the phone and whack a bid on the table. That may have been how it worked years ago but not nowadays. Sadly, the pull of United is perhaps not what it was.

I also think the salaries and fees have just got ridiculous. The numbers being quoted nowadays are obscene. I saw than Solanke who impressed on the Under 20s World Cup is moving from Chelsea to Liverpool, I don''t think he's played a full game for Chelsea but Liverpool are giving him £20K a week, £1m a year. I'm sure he will go on to be a great player but a teenager who has hardly played gets £1M a year, and I am sure there are many others.

How much is too much? Remember when Keane joined us and snubbed Blackburn, he was asked why as Blackburn had offered him more money. His reply was a along the lines of he was still going to be very well paid so what was the issue.

Then you have the likes of Bogarde who sat in the reserves at Chelsea, refused all moves, and just took the money, he had a contract so I guess that was his prerogative. I guess that's also an issue fro atoned. He has a contract and he is entitled to sit in the reserves and take his money, it if he really wants to play would he not look for some sort of compromise that gets him m a move? He really doesn't need the money does he?

These are just 2 examples, the sport is littered with players moving for more cash than the exorbitant amounts they already have, the game has gone mad and has no soul.

5.) 15 Jun 2017 10:49:42
Very well said Tony. Post of the day.

6.) 15 Jun 2017 11:07:57
Who knows if Sanchez or Aubameyang would or wouldn't be interested in joining us?

7.) 15 Jun 2017 14:12:13
Stand, the mere fact that we haven't bid for them means they are not.



27 May 2017 17:46:51
Could anyone tell me who plays the community shield if Chelsea win the FA cup too?

Looks like it'll be Arsenal anyway.

3.) 27 May 2017 19:33:51
Can we get back to calling the, League Cup, Charity Shield and Europa League 'Mickey Mouse' cups again next season or is it verboten?

4.) 27 May 2017 19:58:01
We got a mickey mouse treble. Not bad!

5.) 27 May 2017 20:08:29

6.) 27 May 2017 21:25:42
Scouse treble.

I heard Micky Mouse wears a Beast watch.



26 May 2017 11:03:13
Apparently Silva undergoing Medical at City. If reports are to be believed then that's one we can cross out.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 26 May 2017 11:16:21
Interesting thing for him to be doing before the transfer window opens in 40 days time. reading the metro reports will drive you mental🤣🤣🤣

He could well be city bound all the same. Jose said a couple of days ago that Silva was unlikely.

2.) 26 May 2017 13:52:07
Will be a shame but I'm not sure we were ever in for him the same way the tabloids suggested.
I'm convinced we will be in for Willian rather than the fancy type suggested. Mourinho knows and trusts him. He performed his best under Mourinho.



23 May 2017 01:55:05
Hopefully everyone is ok after the drama that ensued last night in that arena.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 23 May 2017 06:55:35
A disagree to this? God help us all then.

2.) 23 May 2017 06:58:02
To those we know and those we don't RIP.
To those searching for friends and family - may you find them.
To those have lost friends - may you in time find some sort of peace.
My prayers are with the whole of Manchester.
Forgive them - they do not know what they are are doing.

3.) 23 May 2017 07:19:17
Shan. I think the disagrees may be due to the fact we already know that everyone is definitely not OK.

4.) 23 May 2017 08:13:05
What's wrong with these bastards? Is their a place left where we can live in peace? Is this the world we want to raise our kids in? We fight over issues of what club to support what manager and such petty issues and then this happens. The entire world has gone to shit.


5.) 23 May 2017 08:20:58
DW20 I do not forgive them because they know all too well what they are doing. They set out to injure and kill and cause fear. Nor do I forgive anyone who although not actually committing such a disgusting cowardly act is complicit by their co-operation in any part of its commission and that extends to anyone who remains silent and does not condemn such actions.

6.) 23 May 2017 08:47:55
I'm not religious and I don't do forgive I'm afraid. I only wish there were a hell and that those who carry out cowardly acts like this suffer for eternity.

7.) 23 May 2017 11:51:04
I believe in forgiveness. Religion aside, a non forgiving attitude only eats away at ourselves.

Also embracing forgiveness, does not mean that the perpetrator should be should be in anyway shielded from the consequences of what they have done.
Ultimately, ULTIMATELY We can only get rid of enemies by finding a way to make peace. Think Germany, South Africans, Ireland etc etc.

I respect all contrary views. End of my self justification. Let's just United in supporting victims friends an relatives in their grief.



22 May 2017 05:26:16
Sort of breaking a vow here of not posting on this page again this season but have been reading the posts on yesterday's game and have only word to say - "OVERREACTION".

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 22 May 2017 08:12:38
Interesting. What specifically was an overreaction? Care to quote something. I just saw excited responses to a good game. It's possible I missed it though. Looking forward to your response.

2.) 22 May 2017 08:23:31
I think there was some hyperbole, people getting carried away, Bond also referenced it. Some good performances and it was great to see. It it doesn't mean they will all be superstars. James Wilson springs to mind.

3.) 22 May 2017 14:56:29
Don't expect them to be all superstars.
Mitchell at LB yesterday was probably the best anyone has played there this season.
And Harrop scored a goal (which we don't know how to) and almost scored another.
Goes to show why its better to trust some youngsters over the always average 5.5/ 10 players we seem to love playing.

4.) 22 May 2017 17:35:14
Can't say it was an over reaction Shan, just a bit of a feel good game after a long and sometimes frustrating season.
No one came on here saying Harrop is the new CR7. Was just nice for us to see some of the youth team given a shot and most of them impressing.
What I particularly liked about it was Pogba seemed to be the one player leading all the youngsters and enjoying it too.
I was at the game and Pogba and Bailly stood out as real leaders at such a young age.

If this is true, hats off Ed002, you mentioned this on your Sharkopod. Either that or someone heard the Sharkopod and ripped Matic off there. But, Matic could easily be the surprise Jose mentioned.

I don't care if we pay a billion to get a player that our manager thinks can improve our team. Not my money. And it's best that people chattering on about what is being paid leave that to the club CFO.

I seriously hope we sign him as he is one who Jose wants and Moyes isn't our manager. As Ken stated, just to have a banter with Moyes thru the season.

Good lord, who is the world beating winger in German side? You can't pick out positions that suit your argument. It's a team game last time I checked. Two champions league finalists, how many wingers did you see on that game? So if those two teams aren't playing with wingers, wingers should be banned. Bhai why make such a ridiculous comment?

Thanks Stand, atleast you understood. It's again simple that either ways we cannot just put a bid to Arsenal or Dortmund because the first step of the process has failed. Each to their own Stand. I stand by what I said. No one in their right mind would not want Sanchez. Aubameyang, I am not sure on myself. But, as long as Jose thinks that the players he has brought in are a right fit to this team and make us better, I don't care if it's a Sanchez or an unknown. But we simply cannot just go on bidding for everyone that the fans think we should.

That depends on how you measure talent. The problem today is that people tend to measure talent on money. It's us the fans that have complicated the game by talking rather blabbering about money. For me it's damn simple, leave the money to who handles it and sit back and enjoy the game.

We got Pogba for a certain amount and Herrera for some other amount. Who is to say Herrera isn't as talented as Pogba?

There is still a lot of talent around. Dybala? Kane? Alli? Isco? De Gea? Courtouis? Hazard? And I could go on with such players. We need to simplify by seeing what they do on the pitch rather than their cost which are decided by the market. It's a seller's market after all.

Bright shiny new name vs a balanced proven player. I will always pick the latter. Chelsea have their plans and we have ours. So I would rather stick to our plan and not think about which player Chelsea want. Bakoyoko has had one good season and same with Fabinho and people are getting over excited. What Matic brings is bundles of experience and an understanding of the league. Having Matic not only releases Pogba and Herrera but also gives freedom to the full backs to bomb forward. Matic was a Jose player and he knows him and maybe Conte doesn't have him in his plans but that doesn't make him a bad player.
