It's getting late in the window but if Pogba does leave in the coming days would anyone take Ramsey as his replacement?

I'm not saying it will happen, just trying to draw names who could replace PP if he leaves.

Last season Ramsey scored more goals, same assists per minute, less shots per goal, more on target, same passing accuracy, less cards. He basically does what we employ Pogba to do but a bit better in a weaker team (! ) .

Probably be available for a reasonable price with 1 year remaining on his contract and would take up half of the wages that Pogba does.

Would anyone else take Ramsey or offer up any other names we've not already been linked with?

Would love one of the below -

Big fan of Ramsey if played in the correct position!

3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:26:22
would love Erickson from spurs.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 13:17:21
Prefer Verrati to any of them.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:54:34

I presume you mean Eriksen? They want £60m for a defender in the last year of his contract, I imagine Levy would want £250m for Eriksen, no thanks.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:14
Bolger - iirc we were favourites to sign Eriksen around the time he was breaking through at Ajax but SAF thought he was too slow for the Premier League. I seem to remember us playing Ajax at the time and he did stand out.

He's a great player to watch on his day.

7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:03:12
Pogba is better than all of them. There is nobody we could realistically sign who will be anywhere near as capable as Pogba. Disaster if we sell him.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 14:52:00
yeah GDS that one,

not the phone company.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 14:54:14

he does have the ability to be one of the best, but he doesn't have the work rate to fulfill this.

if we are honest with ourselves he hasn't done anything to warrent the fee we paid.

if players don't want to play for us then just get rid.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 16:46:19
If we sell him we will regret it. I reckon Pogba absolutely does want to play for Utd, he doesn't get used to his strength and doesn't like Mourinho - a very common occurence it would seem. The boy has immense talent, he has ego and he bossed the World Cup with France. Whoever replaces Moirinho (when he inevitably gets the sack) will want Pogba in their team!

11.) 07 Aug 2018 17:37:31
I wish that you are right so72 however I don't think he cares about the club, only himself.

12.) 08 Aug 2018 17:27:50
Pogba has been played in a midfield two and played very well, and then in a three (his preferred position if his large agent is to be believed) and he has flattered to deceive.

I don’t buy into this whole Mourinho doesn’t get the best out of him nonsense. Midfielders should be able to play with tactical discipline and still express themselves. He hasn’t really done that since he’s returned, definitely not at the level FIFA players seem to think he is capable of. I don’t particularly like my manager, but I still have a job to do and I like the company I work for, therefore I do it to the best of my ability. PS I’m not getting paid 300k per week for it.

So regardless of ‘unfinished business’ at United for him, and taking misplaced romanticism out of the equation, he has been a disappointment and done little to show he is capable of performing week in, week out in the premier League. He has bags of ability but I’m not sure he has the mentality to really make a difference at our club. Give me SMS, Pjanic, Modric over him any day of the week.

TFM off to Palace on a season long loan. Potentially good move for all parties.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 13:01:44
Good move if he gets the game time wazza i agree.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 13:29:33
Second that. excellent move so long as he gets game time!

3.) 07 Aug 2017 13:31:35
Definitely a great move, he is only 19 and looks to have stagnated a little not getting any first team opportunities. I think he will get in regularly for Palace and come back a much better player for it. Axel has looked more assured than him when they have played and I think that is down to Axel playing a lot of football last season while TFM sat on the bench not getting any minutes.



25 May 2017 12:20:46
Hi Eds,

You mentioned a few weeks back that Herrera may be available after an incident between him and Mourinho. I'm hoping that has settled down now but there's fresh talk of Barcelona wanting him especially since Ernesto Valverde has worked with him previously.

Is there any truth in this?


{Ed002's Note - Yes there is. Even though the issue has been resolved and Herrera is intended to stay, Ernesto Valverde has him as one of the players he has identified to Barcelona that he would like them to try and get. Barcelona has a negotiating difficulty right now so it may not happen immediately.}

1.) 25 May 2017 12:38:33
Thanks 002.

It would be a shame to lose a player of his quality just as he enters his peak years.

With just over a year left on his contract do you know if talks are ongoing?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea about contract talks Wazza. The situation is as I have explained.}

2.) 25 May 2017 13:03:07
This makes sense. When I've watched his interview regarding Captaincy and a few others around that time, he looked very off and down. As if he knew in the long run he wasn't committing himself for us! I hope he stays. Is De Gea RM no1 target ed/ s? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid wanted someone else but have settled on de Gea at this time. They have a back up plan as well but that is not going well for them.}

3.) 25 May 2017 13:14:03
Thank you as always Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Wazza.}

4.) 25 May 2017 16:48:00
Cr92, with all respect, how do you know Herrera's mind by him looking down during the interview? Maybe he was just looking for the right words in English.

5.) 25 May 2017 18:48:28
Looking abit off, not his usual bubbly enthusiastic self. I don't want him to go but and it could've jus been that he doesn't feel like he deserves the captaincy or like he's ready for it.



17 May 2017 18:34:45
Hi Eds, is Tielmens to Monaco a done deal or is there a chance another team such as MU could steal the deal?

Asking for a friend.


{Ed004's Note - He's a goner I'm afraid...}

1.) 17 May 2017 21:57:56
Your friend wouldn't be Ronnie?

Lyon have had a bid accepted for Depay, £21.7m

What were we all so worried about? 😆.




20 Aug 2017 00:33:17
The form of Jones leaves you wondering what might have been. Here's hoping he's turned a corner and gets more luck with injuries. He's defending on his feet now and looks a very solid centre back, as we all expected him to be when we signed him. Love to see him have a long run of playing every week, hopefully his body can get through that and he nails one of those CB positions.


{Ed033's Note - Yes, defending on his hands wasn't working out.

1.) 20 Aug 2017 01:46:39
I thought he was brilliant last season when he played and it was so sad when he got injured again, I think if he can stay fit, and it is a big if, then he could be a star player for us this year.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 06:02:11
I thought he was very good last season .
People keep going on about our defence, saying we need a CB 2 FB but the truth is we haven't conceded many goals for a couple of seasons now .

3.) 20 Aug 2017 07:44:53
It's only injury that has hindered Jones, not his ability.

4.) 20 Aug 2017 10:31:02
Him and Smalling need to stay away from each other in training. The less clearances he does with his face the better too.

5.) 20 Aug 2017 11:57:46
Jred we don't need another CB if jones can stay fit. With him, Bailly, Lindelof and rojo we should be ok. The need for full back is more offensively than defensively. Darmian is ok defensively, but we need a LB willing to provide width and get up and down the pitch. We don't have that currently.

6.) 20 Aug 2017 12:41:33
Exactly Stand, I'd take an attacking fullback who can play either side. This would be a luxury but I'd also like another attacking forward. Someone like Lemar or Draxler. Although I doubt Draxler is available unless he forces his way out.

7.) 20 Aug 2017 12:43:29
I wouldn't rule out Perisic just yet. Inter leaking he'll sign a new deal soon sounds like they are saying to MU "pay up or miss out".

8.) 20 Aug 2017 16:02:56
What if the FB are doing what jose tells them?
8 goals in 2 games it's maybe working.

9.) 20 Aug 2017 21:13:34
I read somewhere that 13 consecutive games was the most he has managed at UTD - Certainly playing well at present.



14 Aug 2017 18:21:40
He hasn't been mentioned much and he certainly splits opinion on here. I think Phil Jones was absolutely brilliant. No nonsense, always talking, organising the defenders and making sure nothing gets through. If only he could stay fit and play like that every week.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:51:00
I've always said I'd keep him over smalling every day of the week. Just needs to stay fit which is the big problem.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 19:05:50
Yeah wazza he played well on sunday. Can he stay fit. His form has been good when fit for past 18 nonths but the problem with making him 1st choice is that he can't stay fit long enough. He is one player that could do with an injury free season to see if he can nail down a spot. Same applies to shaw.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 19:39:36
Said all summer i think him and bailly could do well . Needs to stay fit tho.

4.) 14 Aug 2017 21:13:34
Im just going to throw it out there, i think he needs to stay fit.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 07:41:55
Jones just needs to stay fit.

6.) 15 Aug 2017 17:44:40
He definitely needs to stay fit and sort out those weird faces he pulls too. And stay fit obviously. No injuries would help the staying fit thing. It's always much easier to be fit when you aren't injured, not sure if there is a link though.



11 Aug 2017 16:21:24
Seems to be a spring in the step of everyone today, the wait is finally over!

The Utd page has been really good this Summer, lots of good discussions and inputs from the Eds which has made up for a lack of international tournament. Can't wait for tonight, and to lose another fortune over the next 9 months, bring it on!




06 Aug 2017 08:13:05
Lots of conflicting reports about Bale this morning. Some outlets are saying he's been assured of his future, others are saying United are looking to put a deal on the table and others saying Chelsea have made contact. It's not worth bothering with the back pages any more, I don't know why anybody reads them.


1.) 06 Aug 2017 10:00:25
Wazza, we know that a lot of journalists just make stuff up or get stories from a friend of a friend who knows an agent's brother in law's hairdresser. A broken clock is right twice a day so somewhere in these stories there may be a kernel of truth, but I wouldn't waste your time trying to find it.

2.) 06 Aug 2017 10:04:01
Both Ed002 and Ed001 have said he is available, but wants to stay.

3.) 06 Aug 2017 10:47:13
AJH, I was just pointing out the difference between 'stories', and as you say, it's all guess work. It proves how little some of thes journalists know, it's all click bait.

Just to add to the weight of what everyone has said above backing 002, this page is so much better with you around.

I can see why the Eds get annoyed with some sets of fans but it's a minority and they don't speak for the whole.

I'm assuming OOTRD's first language isn't English. Yet he's trying to talk with other United fans on a forum and you lads are ridiculing him. Hardly welcoming for new members is it boys? Give the lad a chance.

It's been reported as not true 666, but it doesn't work like that. Staff need to out-perform their current pay packet, THEN they can negotiate. Pogba has done very little on a consistent basis to be making demands. No doubt he's already on a very handsome wage.

0333 - I'm glad you've come out and said that as it might carry a bit more weight from you.

The Glazers have spent a ridiculous amount of money, I have no idea how any football fan, let alone United fan, can see it any other way.

002 has also hinted several times this week alone that the issue here is not with Ed Woodward either.

I'm mid 30's so not exactly of the older generation but I've followed the club going enough to remember when we wouldn't 't spend money on the big players bar one or two (Cole, Rio, Veron) and what I see now is ridiculous amounts being spent on some of the biggest transfer fees and highest wages not just in England but World football.

Last summer everyone on here was saying Perisic isn't good enough. He's another player hitting 30 who will command a fairly large fee and will want the wages to match. You really can't fault the board for not jumping feet first into signing a bunch of 29 year olds simply to feed the ego of a manager who only wants short-term success.

Or. No club has matched our valuation for either player, and something has to give if they are to be sold.
