Sorry to fire in random names but I was wondering if utd have shown any interest in Nicholas pepe. Thanks in advance.

{Ed025's Note - not as far as i am aware TB..



09 Jul 2018 20:50:18
Hirving Lozano anyone? I've been reading a lot of reports over the last few days that we've agreed €42 million deal with PSV. Anyone know if there's any truth or is it just more paper talk about random players?

1.) 09 Jul 2018 20:59:47
Im not sure. Let me ask my contacts and get back to you.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 21:29:18
If i'm not wrong isn't lozano another player whos right footed and likes to play left wing and cut inside.

If so we have plenty of those lol.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 23:36:31
He can play right wing. Plays there in Holland.



15 Jun 2017 18:01:33
Do any of the eds know if reports of utds interest in Andersen Tallisca are true. From what I've read it could be that he's trying to engineer a move for himself but I just can't tell with all the junk that's posted on't tinterweb nowadays.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by MU but he is a player Mourinho has been keen on before.}



28 Aug 2015 18:57:19
Appologies if this has already been asked but have United got any interest in Draxler as he seems to be pushing for a move?

{Ed004's Note - Thought he was pushing for Juve}

1.) 29 Aug 2015 02:52:36
Topbomin, apparently Manchester United have shown an interest in Julian Draxler recently who in my opinion would be a very good addition, although in my opinion plays a similar role to the number 10 role that mata,januzaj, Fellaini and Rooney play, we need an out and out striker in my opinion.



26 Jun 2015 12:38:49
Rumours that Vidal has been sold by Juventus and will be anounced after the Copa America. I said a couple of weeks ago that I wouldn't be surprised if it was all done and dusted for him to move to us, just like Herrera.

Oh please let it be us.

1.) 26 Jun 2015 13:24:39
I think Arsenal would be the more likely destination.

2.) 26 Jun 2015 13:27:11
Some media outlets say a £21.3m deal to join arsenal after the copa.

3.) 26 Jun 2015 13:32:28
its a strange one with vidal, last season he was our main target all summer every paper had vidal to united, but this summer we haven't really been linked with him as much.

i would love vidal at united along with schneiderlin and we would have a very good midfield.

4.) 26 Jun 2015 13:38:39
Imagine a midfield 3 with schneiderlin vidal and Herrera di maria and depay on the flanks with rooney/lacazette up front up front what an attacking formation that wld be ah well we can but dream eh

5.) 26 Jun 2015 14:48:02
SPB. There was no mention of Herrera the window we signed him either. All the work was done the season before. I'm guessing a lot of this thing happens as with Ronaldos move to Real Madrid. Fergie got him to give us one more season.

I may be grasping at straws but can't help getting excited about how much better our midfield would be with the addition of Vidal.

6.) 26 Jun 2015 15:52:36
Apparently aturo needs to ask for a transfer. Which language book shall we send out to him. Part of me still thinks well get him. Louis has always had the hots for him!

7.) 26 Jun 2015 16:12:01
I really hope we get him too but If he went to Arsenal him and Sanchez is scary

8.) 26 Jun 2015 16:49:08
I don't think arsenal would be interested. They have plenty of offensive mids and already struggle playing all the guys. Its the star,sun, metro all generally useless publication.

9.) 27 Jun 2015 09:03:03
Vidal was a popular choice last summer but I recall had knee problems which may have put us off. Another year older and has had probably enough playing time to at least consider whether his knee is ok. Will his game based on such energy be as effective as he gets older is a question for me.

10.) 28 Jun 2015 09:26:21
I would love to see Vidal in a United shirt and for 20m is a steal- last year was too much of a risk but has proven he is fit and firing. I wonder if the DUI incident has changed things for some teams - MS- BS - AV - now there's a midfield

Anyone seen the champions league draw. Sad to say but I think we'll struggle to get out of the group stage this year. Let's see if Mr mourinho can work his magic.

1.) 30 Aug 2018 21:07:39
I agree Top, i don't think we will qualify but I'll be delighted if we do.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 22:27:18
Let's see what's what come the business end.



05 Jul 2018 17:03:53
It's all gone very quiet on Bale. Have we given up on him? Any info very much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 05 Jul 2018 22:10:55
He has a new manager, and wants to see what his situation is before making a decision.

2.) 06 Jul 2018 02:02:04
I'd imagine Isco would be even more favoured now though?

3.) 06 Jul 2018 07:26:37
I thought it'd gone quiet on bale because he was waiting to here if he'll get his usual car parking space beside the physio's treatment room, this could be a major factor in deciding if he stays at madrid, after all, the further he has to hobble to the physio, the more chance of doing himself another mischief, seems they've nick named him michael owen, after another welshman.

4.) 06 Jul 2018 12:20:34
It's nothing to do with the manager at Real Madrid. Its the president that makes the decisions, I thought that was common knowledge?

{Ed001's Note - but it was because of Zidane refusing to guarantee him game time he wanted to leave.}

5.) 06 Jul 2018 12:38:20
I meant in terms of if the president wants you out for funds he will do like Ozil or Di Maria, whether or not the manager uses him or not.

6.) 06 Jul 2018 14:38:42
The president doesn’t want Bale out though.

Bale’s issue is that he wants to be viewed as a key player, and Zidane didn’t. With a new manager, Bale will want to sit down with him before deciding anything.



07 Apr 2018 20:27:15
So, we can play. Why haven't we done that all season?

1.) 07 Apr 2018 21:31:44
Every time we have been 2-0 down we have!

2.) 07 Apr 2018 23:24:30
We’re second in the table. Not exactly not played all season.



30 Mar 2018 18:42:12
I keep reading about our supposed interest in Bale and have to admit I'm on the fence. A front 3 of sanchez, lukaku and bale firing on all cylinders is a mouth watering prospect but his medical issues deter me a little.

What's the general consensus?

1.) 30 Mar 2018 19:10:50
We’ve done this quite a bit over the ast year. Most recognise he is a fabulous player, a real game changer. However his injury record is becoming increasingly worrying so for the money being quoted he is a major risk.

Personally I love him but injuries aside, I’m not sure where he would play.

2.) 30 Mar 2018 19:11:44
Great player on his day, maybe one of the top. But for money as ed said that price might be an issue. I would stay clear.

On the other hand, considering injuries he had, there is not that many "miles" on the clock for him. So if injury free, would be a great buy.

If i may ask eds or anyone else in the know. How does injuries, lack of playing full season after second influence players body in the long run?

Does the club run risk management on players they intend to sign? I can appriciated there are many variables.


{Ed001's Note - injuries take a toll and gradually wear a body down which is why clubs always ask for medical records. Some clubs will not take players that have had any long term injuries.}

3.) 30 Mar 2018 19:44:15
We bought our big name attacker when we got Sanchez.

4.) 30 Mar 2018 19:51:13
I've been a big fan of bale and he went for big money because he was one of the world's elite players, but is he now .
He's approaching 29 and had injury problems, Madrid have had his prime years and will still look to recoup a lot of their initial outlay and the buyers may find him not worth a lot at the end of his next contract . to me Madrid waited a year too long to sell to command huge money . Very much price dependant to me as I can't quite put him in the elite bracket anymore probably through injury . So basically I wouldn't gamble paying super money for a player with a poor injury record and approaching 29, but a sensible price which reflected this then never say never .

5.) 30 Mar 2018 19:55:02
He has played 179 games for Real Made over a five year period when his body is supposedly at its physical peak. That averages out around 35 games a season. Considering over that period Real Madrid have made it to the final or at least deep into most cup competitions that means they have averaged around 58 games a season. Which means on average Bale has missed around 40% of the games Real Madrid have played since they signed him.

Those injuries will have taken their toll, and he is unlikely to suddenly have an injury free season or even a mostly injury free season.

Sadly he is a great player who is unable to play as often as he should.
The idea that our club which has the second worst injury record in the EPL should sign the most injury prone player in La Liga for a huge fee and put him on massive wages over a long contract is close to madness.

6.) 30 Mar 2018 19:55:36
I'd like him to sign. Always risks with injuries, but three players off the top of my head that similar stuff was talked about we got one and it worked, RVN. Vidal and Gundogan both seem to have been astute deals as well for Bayern and City and many wanted to avoid them or thought they were unnecessary risks.

On the flip side we were talking about Vlaar and Vermaelen a little while ago and they were good swerves of course, but would have cost next to nothing.

Players like Bale are worth a gamble and I'm sure the price will reflect that as well (or it would if we had anybody but Mr. Blank Chequebook making deals) .

Wouldn't mind making a cheeky bid for Reus as well, whilst on the topic of injury risks.

7.) 30 Mar 2018 20:01:16
I think given a long run in the first eleven Rashford and even Martial would be just as dangerous as Bale and would spend more time on the pitch instead of on the treatment bed. Real would probably ask for Rashford if a deal is on the table anyway 😆😆.

8.) 30 Mar 2018 20:49:39
Bale when fit is still a great player. Always have been a big admirer i still think he has a lot to offer. It depends on the price and his desire to play for us.

9.) 30 Mar 2018 21:19:13
Wouldn't Ronaldo make more sense .
Still banging in the goals. Fit as a fiddle. Knows United well. Must be still 2 good years in him.

10.) 30 Mar 2018 23:35:58
he would be a great attacking signing for us, if we can also get his team mate ronaldo for a two season cameo even better.

11.) 31 Mar 2018 10:18:02
If we were to sign a player over 30 like Leahy mentions it has to be Ronaldo.



16 Mar 2018 16:26:53
After that display midweek I fancy Brighton to get battered on Saturday. There's got to be a response surely, or am I being to optimistic?

1.) 16 Mar 2018 16:38:02
I think we'll keep it tight and hope to nick a goal. That has been the case 9/ 10 games this season.

Any other manager (aside from LVG) would unleash the team and ask them to make a point. I fear Jose will take the approach, "whatever happens we can't lose this game, so keep it tight and we will grind them down".

If we go for it then I'd be amazed. Suppose it depends on if a moment of magic happens, I'm sure we'll have 2 CB's and 3 holding midfielders picking up Murray, got to protect everyone from the amazing attack of Brighton of course - we have to adapt to their strengths / s.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 16:50:03
Is our defense strong enough against a team like Brighton?
Do we not have to play a more defensive tactic against such a strong team .

3.) 16 Mar 2018 18:09:53
If we don't show much attacking intent I think the atmosphere at OT could get quite toxic and rightly so.

I'm all for supporting the team through a rough patch but to continue with safety first football is wilful neglect of their obligation to supporters which is to provide some goddamn entertainment.

If Mourinho doesn't think we're good enough to go toe to toe with Brighton at home then I honestly don't know what he thinks he's doing at Man Utd.

4.) 16 Mar 2018 18:12:32
I'm taking us to overcome Brighton after relinquishing almost 75% of possession and scoring the only goal of the game deep into added on time. MOTM David DeGea.

5.) 16 Mar 2018 18:27:18
Wow guys. We lost a game. We have no God given right to win them all. If we change manager every time we lose we'll run out rapid. The great thing about football is there's always next season. At least were not depending on winning the Europa league to get to the champions league. We're 2nd!

6.) 16 Mar 2018 18:55:10
Topbomin, I think it was the way we lost that game that p1sses people off.

7.) 16 Mar 2018 19:43:20

It will take an awful amount of good football, (not just one good performance) to wash that debacle and Jose's disgraceful after match commentary from my memory bank.
After the midweek fiasco I suspect Jose is drinking in the last chance saloon with many fans.

Keep an eye on the new fella at Southampton. I forget his name but he worked wonders with rb Leipzig and I wouldn't be surprised to see him move quickly if he can get some consistent good results where he is now.

Be careful with pigeons they're manufactured as spies. They're everywhere watching and listening to everything.

If you don't believe me, answer this. Who's ever seen a baby pigeon?

Where does it end though GDS? At some point we have to draw a line and refuse otherwise the 200million war chest will only end up buying 2 or 3 players instead of the rumoured 5 that we're after.

I get the impression Madrid are just being arsey because they can't get De Gea from us easily.

You guys have a short memory. Nothing against the fella but do you not remember the boring sideways football. The man got sacked after winning us a trophy because no one could stand to watch the dull football he made the team play. All the best in your retirement Mr van gaal but let's not forget how glad we all were to see the back of him.

Not convinced that we'll win to be honest but for the first time in a long time I'm looking forward to finding out.

I hope I'm wrong and I'm loving the way we're playing since ole took over but we have to remember just how good PSG are.

I know they have it easy in a league that's not up to the standards that we're used to playing but I'd put psg as one of the top 6 teams in European football and I just don't think we're there yet. Maybe next season.
