Just wanted to divert from excessive attacker transfer talk and look at our left back options. It was mentioned potential targets were Aaron Martin, Tierney and Sessegnon, I feel this is an area we certainly need to fix if Jose still has doubts over shaw. Just wanted to know are these still the targets and have we made any movement on these? Not heard much chatter relating to this. Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - Aaron Martin (LB) from Espanyol - will replace Shaw if a deal can be done but young and it would be a giant step up
Kieran Tierney (no offer - unlikely)
Ryan Sessegnon (LB) child and needs a couple of years – has to be schooled limited chances to train – not a JM first pick
Danny Rose (LB) from Spurs might be a viable solution.

1.) 07 Jun 2017 19:43:50
I'd been wondering about Martin.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 21:03:58
Would love to see Danny Rose sign, thanks Ed for the info.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 22:46:18
Would take Danny Rose in a heartbeat. Can't see us going there though Ed.

4.) 07 Jun 2017 23:49:07
I want to see Luke Shaw given confidence and encouragement so he fulfills his potential.

5.) 07 Jun 2017 18:41:18
Hi all,
Thanks to the eds as always.
Personally, provided he makes a decent recovery from the injury I'd be delighted to get Rose. Could Shaw end up going to other way Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it.}

6.) 07 Jun 2017 20:18:09
Spurs open to selling Rose Ed?

{Ed002's Note - They want to keep him.}



01 Jun 2017 09:42:40
Question for Ed's if around, apologies if this has already been covered (I have checked the search tool) - If Atleticos ban is upheld, will this influence their decision to sell Griezmann? and how much is the clause a factor in any potential transfer? if we meet the clause do they have to sell if all parties agree? or do they simply just have to notify the player? Assuming we are in for him of course. Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - I expect it to make no difference as he will likely stay another season. The release clause if of no matter to MU.}

1.) 01 Jun 2017 15:09:55
Ed, if you can answer, if Griezmann is staying for another season and given the fact that United do need a striker, do you see Belotti or Lukaku coming to United?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained where there is interest.}

2.) 01 Jun 2017 15:16:11
Alright. Apologies, Ed.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 18:15:47
So we are not signing Greizmann, at least we don't have to put up with a whole summer of will he won't he.

{Ed007's Note - Wanna bet?}

4.) 01 Jun 2017 19:02:04
Ed007, lol, oh joy.

{Ed007's Note - Greizmann, Griezman, Griezzman...... I can't wait! :-D



06 Feb 2017 13:19:34
Does anyone have any idea about long term left back plans? With Shaw seemingly un-favoured with Mourinho for whatever reason and with Blind, Rojo, Darmian also not looking likely to be a long term option is there plans in the summer to recruit? only defensive reinforcements I have seen rumoured are for CB / RB, thanks in advance.


1.) 06 Feb 2017 14:06:39
No idea dobeg. On the face of it things don't look good for shaw but maybe Jose is just giving him the opportunity to improve his fitness.
Ed002 has said we have looked at the young lad from Celtic along with half a dozen other clubs. Apart from that I've heard nothing.
Blind seems to have fallen down the pecking order. Darmian is only a 2nd or 3rd option on that side. Rojo lacks a lot of key attributes to be a top full back but is probably the no 1 choice there at the moment. If shaw were to go it leaves a gaping hole in that position imo.
Hopefully Jose is playing the long game with shaw and hopefully shaw is responding and doing his best to get into top condition. Let's hope that is the case personally I have my doubts.

2.) 18 Feb 2017 18:47:48
We have to remember what Jose did with Mkhitarayan before jumping to too many conclusions about Shaw not being included. I think that he's just giving him some time to get fully fit and keep him out of the team so he doesn't get any unfair criticism.



30 Jan 2017 12:28:26
Odds slashed on Seamus Coleman making a move this week, (now 1/ 3) any truth in this? can't see it happening myself


1.) 30 Jan 2017 14:34:02
The bookmakers wanting people to bet.

2.) 30 Jan 2017 19:55:09
That gets slashed every window

Something new. With the potential additions to the side we will have a very tall starting XI for 17/ 18. Pogba, Bailly, Morata, Perisic, Fabinho or Matic, Lindelof are all between 6ft 2 and 6ft 4. Add the wig to this and recruit big sam as manager and we'd be unbeatable!


1.) 27 Jun 2017 13:38:10
Jose likes warriors.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 16:25:09
Play long ball?

3.) 27 Jun 2017 20:48:47
And we still won't be a threat from corners or set pieces. if anyone can find crossing accuracy for the PL this past season I guarantee we're in the bottom 3-4. Also means maybe we won't have to waste a spot on the pitch with Fellaini for his height.



11 May 2017 09:52:01

Many thanks for the sharkpod, Is there any substance in the eric dier / james rodriguez rumours? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - There has been interest shown in Dier but Spurs told MU a while ago he is not for sale. To some extent the situation with James Rodriguez is similar to last year, Real Madrid did not want to sell James in January but they will listen to any very high bids made for the summer as they need to raise funds. Five clubs come in to the picture - Manchester United because they are seen as stupid enough to pay what most sides would see as way over the odds for the player who some would describe as a childish flake; Chelsea as the player has suggested himself that he would like to play for them and live in London - but they won't be held to ransom and have major concerns about his ability to settle in the very culturally different England - and this will probably deter an offer; Arsenal could beome interested but will not be attractive to the player as Manchester United, Chelsea or Bayern Munich; Juventus - but he is one of several potential targets and their interest is elsewhere; and Bayern Munich now that Carlo Ancelotti is there - again they won't be held to ransom but the player has said he would be open to playing for Ancelotti again. However, whilst the intention is that he will be sacrificed in the summer to raise funds, there are some significant things going on in the background that could still have an impact on whether or not he will be leaving during 2016 - so we need to wait and see but I expect circumstances to be such that they will listen to offers or look to include him as part of an exchange deal. But they could block any move until the end of the window awaiting the outcome of a number of issues. His agent has spoken to a number of sides about James including Manchester City - who are unlikely to be interested. Real Madrid has also spoken with PSG through a third party whilst discussions were being held over another player. They could bite later in the transfer window if he is still available but I rather doubt it.}

1.) 11 May 2017 10:41:24
Thanks for your time Ed, much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



24 Apr 2017 12:59:54
With the results of the PFA Player of the year announcements it got me thinking about our own 'Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year' award. Who do you all think should claim the prize? My candidates would include Tony. V who's had an outstanding season, Juan Mata had a great season up until his injury, MKH has shown his class in latter games and Zlatan's goals have surely helped us this season. Stand out winner for me though would have to be Ander Herrera. Our consistent force in midfield and tireless worker, incredible passion for the club. Who gets your vote?


1.) 24 Apr 2017 13:04:27
I would go for Herrera, Ibra, Valencia in that order. It's just so lovely that there's so many options and not just Dave the Save. That shows we've improved a lot.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 13:11:12
Tony v or herrera.

3.) 24 Apr 2017 13:32:43
Ibrahimovic for me. Surpassed expectations and has scored important goals in important games. Carried us for parts of the season.

Herrera and Valencia have also been fantastic but Zlatan shades it for me.

4.) 24 Apr 2017 13:33:04
Herrera, Tony v, Miki.

5.) 24 Apr 2017 13:57:18
Bailly for me- has been excellent in a new country in a new league. Had a bit of a wobble but he looks a beast . Be great when he starts chipping in with a few headed goals, should anyone master the ancient art of putting in a decent corner.

Imagine him with an equally good defender alongside him -hope 2nd season syndrome doesn't catch up with him .

6.) 24 Apr 2017 13:53:39

7.) 24 Apr 2017 15:04:48
Herrera or Valencia.

8.) 24 Apr 2017 17:09:53
Herrera hands down for me. Valencia has had a good season but his final ball is poor I would imagine that most other teams full backs in the top 6 have more goals/ assists than him but I'm sure I'll be corrected on that😂. I know Clyne milliner walker rose mosses alonso have. So has bailly had a good season despite going to afcon.

9.) 24 Apr 2017 20:15:34

{Ed004's Note - Herrera, Valencia and Ibra in that order. For a change it is nice not to see De Gea even being in the discussion shows how far we have come under Jose}

10.) 25 Apr 2017 10:32:35
Top 3 will be Valencia, Herrera and zlatan, in that order for me but wouldn't begrudge the latter 2 winning it. Valencia sacked his agent and would run through a brick wall for this club, he's taken on a new position with no fuss and become one of the best full backs in the league so he would be my choice.



04 Apr 2017 15:49:04
Hi All, just wanted to call on your opinions on a couple of subjects. Firstly the name Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been mentioned as a possibility for our midfield, what's everyones thoughts on the lad? is he what we need? also I'm abit disappointing with Rakitic's comments to Pereira in the Barcelona v Granada game 'Down you go to the second division you son of a b****' very disrespectful in my opinion, thoughts?


1.) 04 Apr 2017 16:44:55
Rakitic is an ar*e! that's my opinion.

2.) 04 Apr 2017 18:36:32
There have been worse things said on a football pitch. Even worse things said sledging on a cricket field or on pitches all over the country every week. Let's hope pereira is able to face him for United in next year's CL so he can give him some back.

3.) 04 Apr 2017 20:56:10
Not going to happen Ken. Because we'll not be in CL. In fact we won't be in Europe. We're pathetic and lacking in everything. Very disappointing.



11 Jan 2017 10:23:16
Has anybody any information / thoughts on the promising loan players and what their future holds in the summer? The likes of Januzaj and Andreas Pereira. I for one would love to see Pereira given a shot after seeing a few games in La Liga and how he has performed there


1.) 11 Jan 2017 12:40:08
I saw a 3 minute video on twitter against his match with real madrid. He holds the ball quite well, his set piece delivery is good, and seems urgent to pass the ball and play at quicker pace.
Kagawa, Herrera, Mkhi like pace. They want quick 1-2s and generally look to pass forward.

2.) 11 Jan 2017 13:00:45
I'd love Pereira to be given a chance. Sadly i don't see Adnan making it. Not showing much at Sunderland so not really warranting a place in our team.

3.) 11 Jan 2017 15:16:02
Adnan is another example of a young lad who thought he had it made when he broke into the first team. Bags of potential but not willing to put the work in. Will be off in the summer I'd reckon.

4.) 11 Jan 2017 16:33:05
Not to say Adnan can't have a good career, a lot of our former graduates have had decent success at other clubs. Drinkwater, Simpson, Keane, Shawcross, etc.

5.) 11 Jan 2017 17:23:55
Difference is those players have the work ethic. Weren't good enough to break into the United squad but worked hard to become EPL regulars. Adnan will go the same way as Morrison, albeit for different reasons.

6.) 12 Jan 2017 05:22:05
I read Lyon were interestee in Januzaj. Would happily sell him :)

He could have asked his agent to negotiate a new contract, informed his teammates of his intention to stay and left it with the club's president to draft. You never know.

14/ 15 - 38 starts
15/ 16 - 35 starts
16/ 17 - 30 starts

Less and less playing time. I think he could be a great signing.

Just wondering what this means for the future of Thomas Muller who is getting less and less playing time as it is, papers will start to add 2 and 2 and he'll shortly be linked with us. I'm sure he was mentioned in the sharkpod as a wildcard, would anyone want Muller and do you think he is attainable?

You're not a fan of Morata are you Wazza.

07 Jun 2017 16:08:12
Need to understand the amount of time he played last season, Morata averaged a goal every 88 minutes in the league which eclipses by far anything achieved by MU players and pretty much anyone else in the top leagues for that matter. Yes this was in La Liga but that is still an astonishing goal rate. at 24 there is potential for him to play at the top level for 10 years. With the way things are going now and the money involved with football, 70mil won't seem that big in a couple of years and if its spent on a player mourinho obviously likes and trusts then I'd be happy to bring him to MU.
