Question for eds

Is there any truth to the stories of spurs and inter bids for Martial and is that a signal that the player is available and club wants to sell him or is it because he might be looking to move or is it just all bs.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think so}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 19:51:28

LOL which part don't you think so?

{Ed004's Note - That they have bid or that Martial is looking to move}



10 Aug 2017 13:34:27
quite a few sites reporting we have signed the PSG Fullback.

X Files

1.) 10 Aug 2017 14:14:17
Will he get a visa.

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure I read Ed002 on one of the sites say it wouldn't be a problem mate.}

2.) 10 Aug 2017 14:27:27
I see that X. Be nice to have a back up or a rotation for Valencia.

Aurier looks a decent player. If signed, Jose building a very physical squad.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 14:32:57
He apparently can play on the left aswell.

I'm hoping it's true I've got a tenner on it 😀.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 14:57:11
Haha odds Dave?

5.) 10 Aug 2017 15:10:06
I have only seen reports suggesting that we have agreed personal terms with him, and nothing with PSG yet.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 15:29:19
All comes from the same website.

7.) 10 Aug 2017 15:35:37
Got it at 16/ 1 but soon shot down 3/ 1 funnily enough it was after ed002s update.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 16:10:44
Yeah eds been spot on so far. Next sharkopod going to be very good.



22 Jun 2017 20:28:55
Any truth to the rumor we are now bidding on marquinos.

X Files

1.) 22 Jun 2017 21:10:03
Doubt it mate, surely Bailly and Lindelof will be our first choice paring next year.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 21:35:04
Unless we are looking at playing 3 at the back! I think in the next few weeks we are going to buy big. Fabinho, Morata, Perisic and maybe James!

3.) 22 Jun 2017 22:17:58
The James rumours seem to be building up momentum again. What's changed in the last few days?

4.) 23 Jun 2017 00:25:17
The papers have run out of new players to link to us, so have now gone back to james.

Thats what's changed.

5.) 23 Jun 2017 06:23:09
Some media outlets saying the bid for Marquinhos was lodged before we got Lindelof - inferring he was 2nd choice or we did want them both. media. so who knows.

6.) 23 Jun 2017 09:50:42
Not james. I don't understand the hype with him.

7.) 23 Jun 2017 10:05:03
6 goals at a world cup including goal of the tournament matey that's where the hype started.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 10:31:52
and ended.

9.) 23 Jun 2017 11:32:33
Where would we play James?

10.) 23 Jun 2017 12:07:51
XFiles Marqinhos may be lined up to play on the wing. The fans apparently do not see the need for a winger so a defender who can be shifted to the wing may be the way to go.

11.) 23 Jun 2017 13:41:06
Does Lindelof not play full back for Sweden? Maybe Jose is thinking of a back 4 with Lindelof, Bailley, Marquinhos and Fabinho with either of Marquinhos or Fabinho able to push in to midfield if we go to a back 3.

12.) 23 Jun 2017 23:42:22
Sometimes I'm not sure whether some posts are sarcastic or not.

13.) 25 Jun 2017 14:33:38
Redpaul . so a cb at right back and a rb/ dm at leftback? sounds good to me . PHilthered obvious enough for you?

“Next week we can seal the deal, ” he told La Stampa.

you would have to think it would all be done and dusted this week.

2.) 31 Jul 2016 17:21:41
Please God let it be done.

3.) 31 Jul 2016 20:43:38
it will happen this week a few will leave and it looks like fabinho will come in he would give us a very tall athletic defence along with a big powerfull first team zlat fellaini pogba shinds martial rashford all big powerfull guys i have not been this excited by a tranfer window as this in ages pogboom will boss the other prem midields like yaya used to. in his prime but even better lol.

4.) 31 Jul 2016 20:44:01
He is due back back to juve on 6th I can't see him going back there to train if he is moving so if not sorted by then it won't be I'd say.

5.) 31 Jul 2016 21:15:37
What a ridiculous statement, ken.

6.) 31 Jul 2016 21:57:38
Why mpez?

7.) 01 Aug 2016 00:59:56
What does a player going back to training have to do with transferring or not? He was always due back on August 6th.

8.) 01 Aug 2016 05:14:21
That is my point, do you seriously think algeri or juve want him there causing distraction if they plan to sell him, do you think he wants to train with juve for a few days if he intends leaving?
its a distraction both parties want to avoid.

9.) 01 Aug 2016 09:31:33
I agree with Ken on that one. If it's to be done at all, you'd expect it to be done before that.



23 Jun 2016 17:17:13
Was on a flight back from Doha with Solgado, who i know well and he goes down there as pundit for BEIN Sports Coverage of some of the games. HE said DDG will go to real after the euros, which was very surprising. also mentioned Morata is not going anywhere and real will keep him.

X Files

1.) 23 Jun 2016 19:44:10
Ballache has just announced on Sly Sports that Madrids interest In De Gea has gone and he himself wants stay here at United and see how things go under Mourinho? Very conflicting. I hope you're best mate Solgados just pulling your leg.

Ballache isn't the best person to believe and doesn't always get it right, but he did call it when De Gea transfer broke down last season, he pointed out Madrids flaws in the transfer and rightfully said they was putting the blame on us when in fact it was them who scuppered the deal.

2.) 23 Jun 2016 20:37:52
Solgado sleeps in Real Madri pajamas. Of course he'd say that.

3.) 23 Jun 2016 20:45:14
Dont know how much ballache should get credit for that CR92.

From what i remember he simply stated that the deadline was 11pm or whatever and that la liga don't give extensions no matter how big the club is.

All he did really was just tell the time lol.

4.) 23 Jun 2016 21:12:55
I remember him stating how the whole saga went (the problems that occured), and after he made it clear that Real was probably the one in the wrong AND no matter what La Liga chiefs (FA equivelent) wouldn't allow Real to get the deal done. All the blame was being pinned on to United from Reals end, Balague came out after everything and stated it WAS probably Madrid who scuppered it and are now trying to cover it up.

5.) 24 Jun 2016 03:37:01
He talks complete non sense balague. He has this season alone claimed we had sanches signed and few others. Makes constant claims and generally makes other statements when pretty much every body also knows tge facts.

He is not a mate but my son is in his academy and teammates with his son. He is actually a celta vigo guy and loves that club.

If you have time would appreciate your views on the following:

Not necessarily United related but is there a deal/ deals that will have a domino effect of other major deals between various clubs.

Also would appreciate what you think is the potentially big blockbuster deal of the summer as there seems to be one every summer.

X Files

{Ed002's Note - (a) Yes to some extent. Players need replacing in some way or other, particularly goalkeepers. So when one agrees to a move the club makes provision, and knowing that the club they are buying from will make provision etc.. What there isn't is a transfer between Port Vale and Arbroath that eventually leads to Manchester United buying Tyroane Sandows.

I am not going to get in to any sort of "Blockbuster" predictions.}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 13:00:21
I heard blockbuster is making a comeback ed002.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 13:31:32
Arbroath is beautiful Ed you should visit sometime.



09 Jul 2017 07:45:00
Question for the eds

Any chance of a list of potential outgoings. Thanks.

X Files

{Ed002's Note - I think it is pretty much as before.}



08 Jul 2017 11:45:44
well Congrats everyone, we got a young striker and they are very hard to find. I will not call him a top striker until we see what he does around better players like united. The deal might look like a steal if he picks up another gear given his age.

I am still big fan of moratta for his quickness and ability on the ball but you can't win them all.

I do really hope we get a right winger who can stretch the pitch for opposing teams and helps people like rash and martial on the left if that is where jose will play them.

I think we will buy 3 more players and sell a 3 or 4 as the windows gets into august. The squad is huge given all the players coming back and needs some pruning.

One of the most positive things about this window is that we hopefully keep DDG who is the best in the world iMO and will only get better.

X Files

1.) 08 Jul 2017 12:06:26
Lukaku is no slouch. I think if we can get matic along with fabinho and a another Winger/ forward we would have had a very good transfer window.

We should be looking to challenge for the title.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 12:41:44
I don't see how people don't think he's a top striker. He is one of the top scorers in the EPL over the last 5 years. The only EPL strikers currently at his level are Aguero and Kane, neither of which are available.

The way I see it, we signed the best available EPL striker. There are issues with his game, but getting a proven 20 plus goal a season EPL striker is a fantastic transfer for a team struggling to put chances away.

3.) 08 Jul 2017 14:37:51
No Danny. That doesn't make sense. There are many more strikers in Europe I have never heard of that we should have signed instead.

4.) 08 Jul 2017 14:47:59
I think that is a good assessment Danny. He wouldn't have been my first choice, but we couldn't get griezmann, aguero, Kane or Sanchez - I don't know much about Morata or Beloti, I think Amuybingbong was a good shout but we have ended up with Lukaku who does know where the goal is, and we can only hope he wants to improve his game and his touch and if he does he could be a great signing .

His goal against Chelsea last season at Goodison is well worth a watch -he can no it no doubt about that just has to apply himself and realise this is the biggest club he has ever played for -expectations are different.

5.) 08 Jul 2017 21:35:31
Not only did we sign the second best goal scorer in England, but we also stopped Chelsea signing the second best goal scorer in England. It's nothing but a win-win as far as I'm concerned.



19 Jun 2017 15:19:17
Reports that the Morata deal is now on hold because of Ronaldo.

My personal view is what a pain in the ass Ronaldo has become and although a big fan of him, he chose to leave and play his peak years for Madrid. Now if true he is doing a dummy spit for whatever reason and we are getting dragged into it.

I think we will be mad to buy a guy at 32/ 33 for the numbers they are talking who will want a nice juicy 3 or 4 year deal and this is not going forward but going backwards.

I just hope we get Morata in and let Madrid and Ronaldo do whatever they want without us being involved.

X Files

1.) 19 Jun 2017 16:14:14
Ronaldo would score more goals in 2-3 seasons with us than Morata would in 5.

Ignoring the finances (which as fans we really should be doing) - Ronaldo would be a better signing.

Will it happen? Almost definitely not.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 16:47:47
It wouldn't be a better signing if it wipes out the whole of the transfer budget and leaves us exposed in other areas. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 17:12:52
That's my fear AJH, the Ronaldo deal will never happen in my opinion but if it did surely it would have be at the expense of other players!

4.) 19 Jun 2017 17:20:36
We have been told that he will not be signing and that all this has nothing to do with Manchester United.
So believing all the jackanory stories on line is pointless.
Hoping we get morata done.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 18:21:17
I just want us to get whatever deals jose and Ed had plans for and not get drawn into a summer long ronaldo saga.



12 Jun 2017 10:44:13
question for everyone. Who would you like to see announced as the next deal. Moratta or Fabinhou.

Can't we have them announced together? No

I'll go Morata then.

4.) 12 Jun 2017 11:04:31
You had two names to spell and you almost got 1 right! My choice would be Fabinhou though :-)

5.) 12 Jun 2017 11:08:00
Hopefully it's Fabinho Morata then Lindelof cz we can all see the acronym lol.

6.) 12 Jun 2017 11:32:39
Fablinimo and Morticia at the same time would be perfect.

7.) 12 Jun 2017 11:33:30
Morrata, Burrata all the same its the intent:)

8.) 12 Jun 2017 11:52:58
We may sign Andre GOMES to partner Morticia.

9.) 12 Jun 2017 12:10:28
Fabinho. Think he is the most important signing we can make.

10.) 12 Jun 2017 13:41:52
I want us to sign Shneyeder next. Him or Guytan would be brilliant. Keep your Fabeenyo and Muratta.

In a market where teams will blow their bank account for young talented players its counter intuitive to go sell young talent with huge potential because they are not the seasoned product. They get there by being able to play.

Most of us would have never seen Rashford had it not been for the injuries and the kid getting a chance. Michael keane was also deemed not good enough but a full season of playing elsewhere did wonders for the kid.

I think Martial is a top top player and better than a lot of players people mention and needs playing time. Its a long season and injuries will happen and we will need guys like him who can make a difference.

Ken/ mort

Nothing wrong with the kids head and nothing wrong with shaw either. They are so young they will need playing time and will mature and learn and become smarter football players by experience as both have all the talent you want in a young player. The pressure of playing for a club like us is immense by both our fans and the media who loves a bad story about us and people need to cut them some slack.

I think it would be madness to sell him to spurs. He is so so young and if we were stupid enough to sell him to spurs, he will rip it up in that team.

People should go see tapes of Morata, Lukaku, kane, Bale, Benzema, lewondowski and the list goes on when they were 20/ 21, maybe then you will realize how good he is and he needs time and playing on a consistent basis.

Lingard is very average iMO and it will be about if Jose can live with Martial's mistakes/ flaws to allow him to grow as a player.

He is very different to Carrick in terms of his ability to dribble and go forward with the ball. He also is the best we have in terms of not being scared of having the ball with opposition players around him and finding a positive pass to release us going forward rather than passing back to the CB's who then kick it up the field.
