A question for Ed002 if possible. You have listed the 4 clubs Pogba has been offered to on the European page. Can I ask if any of those offers were part of deals for players in return? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Manchester United do not want to discuss players being part of any deal at this time - but they may need to start changing that view or it will be difficult to unload the likes of Pogba and Martial.}

1.) 21 Jul 2018 13:54:42
Thanks Ed002, you would think it an obvious option, as they have players we are interested in.

2.) 21 Jul 2018 15:31:13
Ed, do you not think after the World Cup performances from Pogba, MUFC will look to keep him? At least for another season.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly not. The only reason for keeping him will be not being able to sell him.}

3.) 21 Jul 2018 15:03:22
Ed with your reply. it seems like Club is desperate to off load Pogba.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 15:15:59
Maybe it's the fact we don't see the deal the other clubs have offered for both players as acceptable.

5.) 21 Jul 2018 16:29:12
That's surprising that the club won't see a swap as an option. It clearly worked out well when we traded Mkhitaryan and Sanchez.

With the way the prices for players is increasing exponentially, I would have thought player plus cash deals would become more common.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 17:00:39
I'm completely non plussed as to why the club are so eager to see pogba leave I can't understand it at all .

7.) 21 Jul 2018 17:13:40
Pogba was never going to stay long term. We weren’t his first choice when leaving Juve, and the tensions with Jose haven’t helped. I presume that he wants one of the big two in Spain, but they don’t think he’s worth what we’re looking for.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 20:41:31
Ed002 is it the club or JM that wants to sell Pogba if I may ask?

{Ed002's Note - Jim works for the club - he does not make decisions on his own.}

9.) 21 Jul 2018 22:07:05
Thanks for all info Ed - thought-provoking stuff.

So, if United do decide to engage in player exchanges given the astronomical prices of goods/ players now almost rendering cash meaningless - like inflation in a war-torn dictatorship, and supposing Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG might entertain the prospect of taking Pogba, who might they be prepared to exchange, who might we want AND what would the value differential be?

Personally, I'd like to see the following players swapped or exchanged somehow for Pogba:

Real Madrid:

Toni Kroos (player plus cash)
Raphael Varane (swap)
Gareth Bale (player plus cash)
Marco Ascensio (swap)


Rakitic (player plus cash)
Luis Suarez (player plus cash)


Rabiot (player plus cash)
Verrati (swap)

Anyone from Chelsea? Willian?

Wonder if Lazio will do any swapsies.

{Ed002's Note - The point of it for the Spanish sides is that it does not require the effort to sell players.}

10.) 22 Jul 2018 01:12:30
Im surprised u would entertain Suarez i would stay awy from that dude.

11.) 22 Jul 2018 10:33:51
Why doesn't it require the effort for Spanish sides to sell players? I'm always intrigued that the Spanish sides can offload unwanted players so much easier than English sides, especially RM with the wages they offer and playing there being seen as the pinnacle by most players, you would think they would be reluctant to leave and they normally manage to get high fees for the players they want to shift.



30 Nov 2017 17:55:43
Reports in Spain, that Mourinho flew to Madrid on Wednesday to meet with Griezmann. Any truth in this Ed do you know, or is it just click bait.?


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know where he was man. My knowledge of click bait may precede yours by a couple of decades. Not really sure what you are referring to but way back Mike Dicken and I were involved in an incident in New York. I doubt that is what you are referring to.}

1.) 01 Dec 2017 12:06:41
RIP Mike Dicken - brief search reveals quite a character!

{Ed002's Note - Mike went quite a few years ago now.}



02 Jun 2017 10:31:59
With us cooling our interest in Griezmann and our reported interest in Lacazette, who allegedly preferred a move to AM, could it be a temporary arrangement until after their transfer ban, when a swap deal could happen, or is that way to complicated.


{Ed025's Note - very much so mate..

1.) 02 Jun 2017 13:58:04
Maybe we are trying to apply so pressure on Atleti, we buy Lacazette who they obviously wanted, maybe they will have a word with Grieznamm tell him they don't mind him going, lol.

Watched Denzel Washington on the one show for The Equalizer 2. He replaced Edward Woodward in that, any chance he could replace him on transfers.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 22:11:06
Haha, nice.

I reckon Denzel would be great.



09 Aug 2018 13:29:36
I still think we will get Alderwereld, maybe i'm an optimist. But god help this site if we don't sign someone and then we don't beat Leicester, it will explode.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 13:58:44
We’re not going to get anyone from the EPL. Nobody is going to sell at this stage with no time for a replacement. We might get a player from another league, but that’s doubtful now. I don’t think Jose is happy, and if we struggle over the next few weeks he will point the finger at the club for failing to sell players and bring in his targets.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 14:03:13
With the kind of preseason we had and the number of players missing, I think Leicester will hit us bad on the counter and we won't be able to break their defence.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 14:18:09
Exactly Jose has his excuse for leaving when the season fizzles out by Xmas. Glaziers happy for champions league qualification. It’s going to be along season of taking rubbish from rival fans.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 15:16:55
Jaime - don't worry about taking 'rubbish from rival fans'.

Quite clearly we get even more 'rubbish' from our own fans.
If I didn't know better I would think this was an Anti-United page at the moment.



05 Aug 2018 21:35:56
That has made my mind up, I am a United fan but also a member at Lancashire cricket. So I will be at Old Trafford on Friday, but it will be to watch the T20 cricket. There is nothing worth watching at the other Old Trafford.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 21:55:55
Nice one. When we win something we’ll give you a shout. Are you 12?

2.) 05 Aug 2018 22:06:51
No MDL10 i'm 52 and even during the difficult 70's and 80's, I was never bored watching my team, but I am now.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 06:49:34

I am older than you but you must have slept through the Sexton years.



05 Aug 2018 09:54:33
This mornings papers, TheMirror has us signing Alderwereld, The Sun has us in a panic about Yerri Mina and the Express has a last bid for Maguire. I would say you couldn't make it up but as a sports journalist you clearly can.


{Ed001's Note - there was another paper saying you had agreed personal terms with Mina as well.}

1.) 05 Aug 2018 10:04:32
Just be an easy job, lie for living.
Does that make them failed politicians 🤔.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 11:38:56
The best part is a tabloid will scream " Exclusive UTD agree terms with X, medical in next 48 hrs" 3 hours later the same paper" Exclusive UTD won't be signing X". an endless stream of keeping advertisers happy and people clicking on the story.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 11:44:46
Who do you think we will end up with Ed, if anyone?

{Ed001's Note - probably Alderweireld.}

4.) 05 Aug 2018 12:16:02
I really hope so Ed. Liverpool looking strong this time around, fancy your chances this season? Be yourselves and City imo.

{Ed001's Note - I prefer not to expect anything, then I can't be disappointed.}

5.) 05 Aug 2018 12:56:46
Haha, very true Ed.

{Ed001's Note - plus I am so superstitious that I hate to say something in case I jinx it.}

6.) 05 Aug 2018 13:29:44
I wouldn't say anything if the press mentioned how longs been since Liverpool won it. We never heard the end of 26 years.



23 Jul 2018 00:12:15
Wow, that was awful. No excuses, i would expect Salford to give that team a game and have a goal threat. We created nothing at all and look anything but a team. I worry for this season, an implosion and Jose being sacked would be my bet at the moment, and i wouldn't be upset. Maybe the effect of a long day and a few beers, but i have officially switched to Jose out, before our club is ruined.


1.) 23 Jul 2018 01:41:46
I think you need a name change.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 06:36:59
Have you seen pre-season before? It's usually garbage. Means very little.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 09:28:51
Remember pre-season under LVG when we were playing quite good football and won all the games, means f all really.

Must be true, it's in The Sun and they never make things up to sell papers.

Most of us echo those thoughts Pogthedog, this site is a better place with Ed002 on board.

Thanks Ed, really informative and puts a lot of the nonsense from the rags to bed. The only place to come for good info.

Glad to see that ed002 has clarified the gutter british media. I would say sports journalists, but they have little interest in sport and more in sensationalism and outright lies. A few on here would do well to remember that when reading.

Unfortunately Jaimeej79 is longer than 3 seasons. There is a culture of negativity at the club that goes too deep. From a team that scared the opposition we are now an easy bug name scalp.

Because we do everything slowly, from passing to chasing to attacking, it is all slow.

I will back them fully, but I haven't approached a season as worried as I am now. Scary times.
