Ed i hope you are well,

Are we interested in signing a midfielder in january?

There are lots of reports that we are going to bid for Lorenzo Pellegrini in january.



{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timings of transfers. Clubs are often reluctant to sell in January as they cannot find replacements and certainlt Roma will not want to sell Lorenzo Pellegrini. But as I have said, Manchester United are looking again at LP who has been on the list since last January but he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as they have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option.}

1.) 19 Nov 2018 12:31:30
Sorry Ed002, Was Tony Kroos the preferred option by Mourinho?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death - why do I keep getting the same questions? Read the posts, use the search engine.}

2.) 19 Nov 2018 13:03:10
with the new champions league rule changes taking effect, I am sure we will see more transfer activity in January.

3.) 19 Nov 2018 12:40:44
Thanks Ed - is there any names you can give for a right sided midfielder?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Fred plays on the right of midfield if desired but most CM players are adaptable enough. The club do not seem to be attempting to look for specifically RM players.}

4.) 19 Nov 2018 13:26:30
Thanks ED. I don't think he will be a sensible choice as he is very inexperienced but you just never know how it work out if we sign him.

5.) 19 Nov 2018 15:16:53
Apologies Ed, meant more right sided forwards?

{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is an immediate priority right now Fresh. CB remains the priority.}

6.) 19 Nov 2018 17:37:40
wasted trip for Jose going to Switzerland than if he went to see Toby Alderweireld.

7.) 20 Nov 2018 10:06:22
Maybe Nico Elvedi ;)



13 Oct 2018 13:11:13
Ed any interest in lucas hernandez of atletico?


{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is far from new interest.}

1.) 13 Oct 2018 13:21:44
Cheers ed. Have we ended our interest in alderwereld?

{Ed002's Note - The club were unwilling to try to complete a deal in the summer so interest is elsewhere. But LH would not be of interest as a CB.}

2.) 13 Oct 2018 13:32:26
Would skrinar be one of the first choices as a cb as he looks like a very good cb.

{Ed002's Note - Most certainly but much will depend on whether pne faction of the press and the toxics get their way.
Milan Skriniar (CB) Financial demands of Inter are excessive and the said they will sell for €75M in the Summer of 2018 - expect that price to be well over €100M now but Manchester United remain very keen and may be able to negotiate
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) financial viable and a target from his time at Chelsea
Rúben Dias (CB) Manchester United's manager has held a discussion with the player's agent
Toby Alderweireld (CB) Chances of him joining remain as they were - it will be difficult
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let him leave for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme – so might be possible but the price could be through the roof.}

3.) 13 Oct 2018 14:57:32
Thanks ed. Some interesting choices and they all look like top up and coming defenders apart from Toby as he is very experienced.

4.) 13 Oct 2018 14:57:46
Is it more reasonable to consider josé was at the serbia game to look at milenkovic as opposed milinkovic-savic?

{Ed002's Note - I would not make such assumptions. Perhaps he is able to look at two players at the same time?}

5.) 13 Oct 2018 15:30:43
the man knows no bounds!

6.) 14 Oct 2018 10:59:57
Fantastic info Ed002, thank you! As mentioned above, looks like we’re considering quality defenders.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously these are the targets of the incumbant one.}

7.) 14 Oct 2018 11:51:09
Great Info ed would the main targets for Jan match those as the summer? right wing central mid and CB? Maybe a right back could now be added with Valencia causing problems. I know all is dependent on Jose still being manager and won't be easy in January.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about the timing of transfers, particularly in January. You likely have unrealistic expectations for January and the club had no interest in going after many of the players that had previously been identified as potions. The club has however continued to look at players, but these are players that were primarily identified to meet the brief that Mr Mourinho identified. Additionally much will depend on who leaves.}

8.) 14 Oct 2018 10:59:57
Fantastic info Ed002, thank you! As mentioned above, looks like we’re considering quality defenders.

{Ed002's Note - This would be entirely dependent on the incumbent manager staying of course.}



08 Oct 2018 17:00:29

Are there any players we will look to sign in the January window and if you could treat us with some names it would be appreciated from the Manchester United Page.


{Ed002's Note - Right now the club is obviously in a difficult position regarding the witch hunt, the situation with Mr Mourinho and the need to sell players in order to free up wages and places in the squad. January is not a time that clubs typically plan to make changes but I am aware of more movement than would normally be seen in respect of plans for January. The problem Manchester United have from that perspective is that the players that might arrive would be based on the desires of the incumbent manager and those who have been working in the scouting department to find suitable options to suits the needs as seen now. If there were a change of manager before the end of the year, my expectation would be the smallest of changes in January.}

1.) 08 Oct 2018 18:03:42
Ed, are you aware which direction the club are leaning towards with Jose?

{Ed002's Note - I have had several days of everyone here telling me that Mr Mourinho that he was being sacked on Saturday night and Zidane was to replace him. I explained the situation about the first point then - I had no need to explain about Zidane. Clearly there is a witch hunt from one of the newspapers and many, many of the fans if the folks here are representative. The problem is, that most have no grasp of the workings of the club and seemingly think the Woodward makes all of the decisions - again I have explained that is untrue. I am not aware of any decision by the board to sack the manager at this time but if the situation becomes untenable they may need to seek a resolution - their focus up to now has been on a different job that needs filling - the Director of Football role. The toxics must love all of this.}

2.) 08 Oct 2018 18:20:05
Are then any viable options for the club, interms of who could possibly take over from Mourinho.
I would presume that they have a potential list of next managers drawn up' give the current predicament.
Is the focus on appointing a DOF or is that been put on hold for the time being?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any potential list of new managers the club has drawn up - they would need to take advice over the matter. In terms of interim managers, both Sam Allardyce and Glenn Roeder are available.}

3.) 08 Oct 2018 18:31:44
Personally ed I think with or without Jose the club need to sort a dof by Christmas giving them the 2nd half of the season the make plans and changes. I'm unsure on what the best course would be with mourinho as I'd be loathe to let some of the players think the way they have acted is acceptable i'd much prefer to remove them before making a decision on the manager. However if Jose continues to publicly criticise the players and complain publicly about what he doesn't have he may leave the club with little choice.

4.) 08 Oct 2018 18:42:45
Thanks ed as usual.

5.) 08 Oct 2018 19:16:17
Haha Glenn roeder 😂.

6.) 08 Oct 2018 21:26:03
Love it ed. Let's hope that the toxics wind it in and hopefully Jose gets the backing to make some personnel changes. Also hopeful that a DOF comes in to handle the footballing side.

We seem to bit quite a behind other teams at the moment, not just because what's happening on the pitch but most importantly what's been happening off the pitch.

Has there ever been an interest from the club's hierarchy to get any of the class of 92 more involved. I am aware Nicky Butt is there but I was just wondering would they consider looking at past players.

{Ed002's Note - The club needs the best people to work in such people, not random players from the past.}

7.) 10 Oct 2018 08:07:26
Sure ed. I was just wondering if they'd ever been considered.

I hope that they can get what they want.

{Ed002's Note - I don't see why the club would consider any of the "Class of 92" as being suitable managers/head coaches for the club as there is little or no experience:
David Beckham - tax exile and failed parfumerie looking to leverage the social profile of himself and his wife in order to run a soccerball franchise and old folks home in Miami. Tattoos ruled him out of his preferred role and the next James Bond.
Nicky Butt - experience at unsuccessfully running a pretty poor Manchester United youth set up - far from what the club needs.
Ryan Giggs - has a tiny bit of experience as the Wales manager but that would not be of any use at all in managing Manchester United - continues to flirt with the nonsense of Vietnamese football - maybe they will have a job for him?
Gary Neville - by far the most experienced manager wise with stats to rival Glenn Roeder - might be the best option.
Phil Neville - the one with the smarts out of the bunch but experience is in the girls version of the game.
Paul Scholes - becoming a bitter old man and is using his position as the world's most respected pundit leading the charge to remove everyone who doesn't have ginger hair from the club. Eventually he will become a pundit based in the Middle East.}

8.) 10 Oct 2018 12:26:52
Out of interest Ed002, who do you think is capable of doing the job? Obviously we've had your thoughts on the DOF etc but I'm curious to know what head coaches or managers are fit for the purpose.

{Ed002's Note - There are numerous coaches who could do the job perfectly well but the club, should they need to, will have to think about availability, cost, desire etc.. They also need to think about the level of risk there would be involved. It is easy to argue that Max Allegri could do a good job, but he is already at Juventus and has been messed around in the past by Manchester United and turning down Real Madrid shows he is not looking to move. Carlo Ancelotti could do a fine job but his has just joined Napoli. Antonio Conte has had repeaseted success and could do a good job but may not be interested in a return to England and there are others already looking at him and speaking with Chelsea. Laurent Blanc is available, knows the club and has the perfect skill set. Pochettino would be of interest but perhaps not available. Simeone could do the job but would not be interested. I could go on ....}

9.) 11 Oct 2018 07:48:06
Ed002, what about Leonardo Jardim?

{Ed002's Note - This is the Manchester United page.}

10.) 11 Oct 2018 10:03:13
Great reply and insight Ed. I was speaking about this with friends recently and the consensus was Blanc, Simeone, Pochettino, (maybe Beilsa) and Allegri. One outsider was mentioned too that might be a decent punt and that was Nuno Santo from Wolves. a bit inexperienced but has a good pedigree and playing good football with a currently unfashionable side.
However the core of the matter is we currently have a manager so this is all hypothetical until the case is otherwise.

11.) 11 Oct 2018 13:39:29
Apologies, Ed002, my question was not clear.

What I meant was, will Leonardo Jardim be a good coach for United?

{Ed002's Note - No.}



15 Jul 2018 22:40:00

{Ed002's Note -

2.) 16 Jul 2018 01:30:12
Cheers Ed002 as always. Bit underwhelming really for us but then again often its the unsung transfers that work out great. Love that Kroos is a major possibility. I'd keep Pogba if possible myself but who knows.

3.) 16 Jul 2018 08:41:21
Excellent listening, thank you Ed002 and all the other Ed's for running the sites.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 11:03:29
Thanks a lot Ed002, very interesting and found the Lichsteiner/ Ryan comments very amusing.



28 Apr 2018 18:17:41
So a cetain brazilian is on the cards in the summer Mourinho has hinted.

Could it br Neymar hahhaha, most likely be Fred .


1.) 28 Apr 2018 18:47:53
Most probably sandro.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 18:51:10
The return of Anderson.

3.) 28 Apr 2018 20:01:13
My missus has told me that a Brazilian might be on the cards for her before we go on our summer holidays this year.
I'd disappointed if she means Anderson, we're not going all inclusive!

4.) 28 Apr 2018 20:03:15
Oh yeah buy neymar and have 4 players for left wing.

5.) 28 Apr 2018 20:14:31
Lollll guys.

6.) 28 Apr 2018 20:15:42
Hope it is Sandro and we go for our main cm target of Savic.

7.) 28 Apr 2018 20:56:35
Fabinho perhaps.

8.) 28 Apr 2018 21:59:08
Casemiro, Alex Sandro, Fred, Willian, Fabinho, Felipe Anderson, Douglas Costa or indeed Neymar. Of course he could be talking about the return of Andreas Pereira. Lol. It's going to be a long summer.

9.) 28 Apr 2018 22:18:43
Jorginho born in Brazil but an Italian international. Would love it to be Rafael Da Silva. but i would reckon it be either Willian or Alex Sandro.

10.) 28 Apr 2018 22:19:56
Andersom Talisca was linked some time ago as well as Malcom.

11.) 29 Apr 2018 01:28:38
Heard Pele joining us? 😉.

12.) 29 Apr 2018 09:22:48

13.) 29 Apr 2018 17:25:47
I know it’s not Neymar, but I really hope it isn’t. Cannot stand him.

14.) 29 Apr 2018 18:39:35
Fellaini's new hairstyle.

15.) 30 Apr 2018 00:45:51
My guess is Willian.

16.) 30 Apr 2018 08:35:14
Won't be Willian, guys. He loves Chelsea and has played a lot for us this season. So it's not like he's had a lack of minutes either. He's staying at Chelsea.
(PS: if I'm being honest there are much better options for you out there than Willian. He's nearing 30, and would cost quite a bit. Also not the best end product mostly. )

You can have Pedro though if you want!

17.) 30 Apr 2018 11:08:10
'He loves Chelsea' lol.

18.) 30 Apr 2018 14:02:23
Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself @Jackson.

19.) 30 Apr 2018 18:45:42
Not really, LeeLee. Also GDS2, no need to laugh at that. In the age of mercenary footballers, Willian is a guy that's shown nothing but love for the club. He wants to be at Chelsea (and spurned Spurs in the process) and has said nothing BUT that.
His commitment to the club is without question, something which can't be said of guys like Tibo and Eden for example (who seem to like the thought of a transfer to Spain as well) . He's no superstar, but his loyalty makes him a valuable squad member.

I'm not here to troll or anything, just shedding some light on this as I'm probably more up to date on Chelsea related matters than you are. But thanks for the mature response :-)

20.) 01 May 2018 22:00:21
Ok Jackson. cue Willian moves to China for 300k per week in the summer.

21.) 04 May 2018 23:01:07
I'd bet on that not happening, Eric :)

How can you let Jred to insult me and when i reply back to his post it doesn't get posted.


{Ed001's Note - you posted up an insulting comment about a player, which he pointed out that he might say the same about you if he knew you. It was no more than pointing out that you went too far. Suck it up for heaven's sake.}

1.) 27 Nov 2018 15:38:01
Come on Ed. I don't take things too far and have never insulted any posters here on a personal level and i expect the same from fellow posters.

I have seen a lot worse here then what i said.

Anyways no issues ed and have a fab day.

{Ed001's Note - I never said you did, but you did call a player a moron and now you are arsey because it was turned on you. Perhaps if you are touchy about it being said about you, then you should think better of using it about others?}

2.) 27 Nov 2018 16:23:16
Ed. I just love your new Mrs. Doasyouwouldbedoneby character.

{Ed001's Note - erm thank you I think.}

3.) 27 Nov 2018 16:52:30
I am sure you will feel the same way if that was aimed at you.

Anyways i am not here for an argument.

{Ed001's Note - you still aren't getting it are you? You aimed the exact same insult at someone else now you are whining when it is aimed at you. Can you not understand why you need to give it up and learn not to give it out first before complaining about getting it back?}

4.) 27 Nov 2018 17:54:53
Okau no probs Ed.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}

5.) 28 Nov 2018 00:16:49
I didn't call you a Moran pal, I just said pogba may have a similar opinion of you as you have of him .

6.) 28 Nov 2018 11:09:04
No probs Jred. All sorted.



22 Nov 2018 12:37:24
Would you guys be okay with us signing Skrinar from Inter Milan and Martial going the other way.

Then we can replace Martial with Everton Soares or a similar up and coming talent.


1.) 22 Nov 2018 12:43:58
No. We don't need a young centre back we need an experienced one.

2.) 22 Nov 2018 13:05:15
I got the understanding that we won't be going for experienced players that is why Skrinar or Milenkovic could be a good signing.

I would go all out for Toby or Koulibaly but i don't think that will happen.

3.) 22 Nov 2018 13:08:33

4.) 22 Nov 2018 14:58:56
With respect to Inter, they’re a level lower than Martial needs and in my opinion is a step down.

Skrinar would be a superb centre back signing.

5.) 22 Nov 2018 15:04:50
was suggesting Skrinar about a year ago as my choice of cb - not sure of a deal with martial unless he fails to sign and we risk or get the impression he would run his contract down. Would prefer him to go abroad rather than EPL club though.

6.) 22 Nov 2018 15:13:57
If this is a wishlist sort of a post then i would want any two of
Skriniar, De Ligt or Koulibaly. And upfront i would want Lukaku's replacement to be Kane.

7.) 22 Nov 2018 18:37:24
Yes sell our best attacking player, that's a great idea.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 20:33:26
Becks58 totally agree those players would be superb signings.



18 Oct 2018 17:13:51
Wow what a turn around for Shaw. Hope you are as successful as you can be playing for us and win us lots of trophies.




10 Aug 2018 12:42:32
Tranafer window is over and we got to do with what we have.

Sanchez should be a revelation this year as from looking at preseason gamea he does look a lot fitter and faster.

If Pogba has his heart on United should be tremendous for us, Lukaku and Fredn should also do really well. I think Fred will do all the running this year and help out Matic in protecting the back four which will make Pogba a lot more involved with the attack.

Lindelof hardly played last year and i think this is his year to cement a spot in the starting 11.

Th3 only issue we have is RB and LB unless Shaw turns the tables around which is quite doubtful but i hope he proves me wrong.

We are also going to struggle on the wings unless Martial and Rashford perform this year and really kick on.

We have a good team but they need to perform a lot better then they have last year.

We should be challenging for the title if players such as Matic, Pogba, Sanchez, De Gea, Baily, Lindelof and Lukaku perform to their potential. It will be tough for us this year if any of these players let us down.

I have a st4ong feeling Sanchez will score a lot of goals this year starting with 2 goals today.




02 Aug 2018 18:30:48
How about Goncalo Guedes as a right winger and can also play as a false 9 or a striker. He is also younger then Bale and is available.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 21:51:12
Completely random and overrated.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 22:24:50
He does have a lot of talent and plays in the position we need to strengthen and is a lot fyounger then the likes of Willian and Bale.

I woulsve preferred Pulisic but going by the notes of Eds he isn't versatile enough for us to target him this year that is why we are after the likes of Bale and Willian.

Do you really think Pogba played great for France?

The players playing well at previous clubs -

Bailly - He had like one season in top flight and then we signed him.

Lindelof - He is starting to show form now.

Martial - No body knew who he was and we signed him. Its not like he was pulling trees in Monaco as he only had one season with them i think.

Pogba - Played for Juve but he had the top players like Pirlo and doing the donkey work. He doesn't have that here and that is why he messes up for when he doesn't bother to put a shift in.

Sanchez - He is the only player i'd say i'm pissed about as he should be tearing the league but again he is a cry baby as Ed pointed out Sanchez doesn't want to play on the wings. That is poor attitude in my eyes.

Zlatan - Did really well and was unlucky he got injured and went off.

Mkhitaryan - This was a big gamble and it i think the whole world k ew he has attitude probl3ms and was shifted out.

Fred - Its his first year.

Lukaku - Has played to his potentional and doesn't have bad attitude. I personally don't think he is the type of striker that will win us the league on his own.

So can you explain to me who was really pulling trees at their previous club apart from Sanchez who i think should be doing well.

I know u guys don't like the manager but u got to be fair and give the players the same treatment! .

The reason Madrid and co are interested in Rashford it is because he is going to be cheaper then their first choice targets.

It is one thing to play in la liga and serie A then playing in the premier league.

I also think if Mourinho stays then one of Rashford or Martial is not going to get the games they want as Mourinho is under pressure to win and he won't win with two rookies who are still learning their game.

It is best for Rashfors to move to get important game time. He could even go on loan to a premier league to get game time and then come bk to our club when he is ready.

We have become a cosy club and need to be ruthless in decision making.

One question for you.

Have those signings been a failure due to their own attitude or because of their ability?

I can clearly see all of them have the talent and it is mainly due to their attitudetfor failing at United.

Thanks ED. I don't think he will be a sensible choice as he is very inexperienced but you just never know how it work out if we sign him.

Liverpool have Van Dijk, City have Laporte, Toby at Tottenham and Luiz at Chelsea they are all better then any of our cbs.

Godin, koulibaly, skrinar, jimenez these are all top cbs.

There are some other young players who are already on the same level as our cbs or have more potential.

Our cbs ave been rubbish fr years. You are getting too confused with the way other teams play. Defenders are meant to defend first and if you can't do that then you shouldn't be a defender. By changing your style of play to cover your crap defender doesn't hide away the fact our cbs are crap and have been fr years.
