Rumours kicking about fee agreed with Ajax for Del Ligt and personnel terms close. Picking up a lot of traction on social media.


1.) 24 May 2019 21:39:44
Why do I get the feeling that this could be snieder all over again?

2.) 24 May 2019 22:27:39
We're signing Sneijder after the bank holiday. Gaitan too if his agent picks up the phone. Strootmans due the following week. Then Woodward turned off Football Manager 2014.

3.) 24 May 2019 23:02:01
If true, and a massive IF, would be a sensational purchase.

4.) 24 May 2019 23:59:23
Yeah there's a lot flying around on Twitter about. Some claiming it's done and it will all be confirmed in the next few days but I never believe anythings complete until I see the player holding the shirt at Old Trafford. Would be hell of a signing though if we could get it over the line.

5.) 25 May 2019 05:52:21
Would be a sensational signing.
A natural leader and would serve for 10 to 15 years.

6.) 25 May 2019 10:45:58
He's going to Barcelona read eds previous posts.

7.) 25 May 2019 11:37:23
Ed has said there is an issue to be relived first before Barcelona sign him. that issue could be anything. Money, personal reasons, agents, playing time guarantees etc.

8.) 25 May 2019 11:46:17
While I can't help getting excited about the prospect of De Ligt stabilising our defence, we need to remember players have used us in the past to boost their own negotiating power when getting a new contract or putting pressure on a buying club to meet their demands.

I think this is what we are seeing and he will end up at Barca, i judt hope we put a cut off point on it instead of wasting the entire transfer window chasing a player who may have no interest in playing for us.

9.) 25 May 2019 13:57:37
Even if he doesn't move to barcelona there are probably about 4-5 other clubs that he could go to that would be a better move than us at the moment.

PSG, Juve, Bayern, City etc.

10.) 25 May 2019 14:10:05
No chance, wages will be insane plus fees etc. Why give a young lad high wages then what does he have to get up for? that's been our main issue lately, signing this lad will carry on the problems.

11.) 25 May 2019 17:54:34
If we sign De Ligt we need 3-4 other leaders to come in and rip out the bad apples. Otherwise he will be another Daley Blind, no authority so his leadership counts for zero if he is an alien walking into the corrupt nature of our dressing room.

With a few other newcomers he would be immense. Otherwise like Lindelof/ Herrera/ Mata - having the right attitude will count for nothing.

12.) 25 May 2019 20:26:34
Ed002 put us out of our misery please 😂😂.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any "done deal".}

13.) 26 May 2019 00:20:43
But are all those other teams looking a centre half, DSG?

14.) 26 May 2019 06:34:18
City - otamendi and kompany are leaving and need to be replaced.

Juve - barzaghli retiring, bonucci and chiellini getting on a bit

Bayern - probably not as much but they are still rebuilding and de ligt is the perfect age for that rebuild.

15.) 26 May 2019 02:42:08
It's a fantastic website in Ireland ed002. You can pick up some great bargains!



02 Jun 2018 14:44:14
Di Marzio tweeting Fred deal done, if he says it it's good enough for me. Griezmann to decide where he is going befor WC too.


1.) 02 Jun 2018 16:48:49
deal was pretty much done some time ago just not formally announced to the public.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 17:41:09
Pretty sure Barcelona are still favourites for Griezzman last time I checked.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 18:05:13
Genuinely no idea how good Fred is and what type of midfielder he is?

4.) 02 Jun 2018 19:16:15
From what I have seen I think he will sit more comfortably with Matic allowing Pogba to push forward with more free roll. If that's the case our dynamic will change for the better.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 21:08:52
Barcelona are not favourites in the exchange. To stay put is a certain according to the odds.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 23:11:15
Think the Griezmann one has more chance of happening than Ronaldo coming back.

7.) 03 Jun 2018 00:08:11
Does this mean no room for Ander? Could well be sold.

8.) 03 Jun 2018 01:35:29
Hope Herrera will stay. He might be behind Pogba, Matic, and Fred if Fred indeed comes, but he is a valuable player. Tactically aware, committed, and he loves the club.

9.) 03 Jun 2018 05:30:32
Torn on that as he will then stop any of the young lads getting a chance.

10.) 03 Jun 2018 08:14:48
I say cash in on Herrera, he's ok but goes down to easy and gives to many free kicks away, if we get Fred in he will be the link between Matic/ Pogba, Herrera will be a bit part player on big wages which is pointless IMO.

11.) 03 Jun 2018 09:28:36
We should keep herrerastill need some decent squad player matic Fred and pogba will not be available every game.

12.) 03 Jun 2018 11:23:45
Sorry FZZ I just meant out of other clubs Barcelona are favourites. You are right in that the best odds are on him staying put.



11 Aug 2017 14:11:12
Whats peoples opinions of Jose in talks with Zlatan do we really want him back, Will he be happy as a bit part player, do we really want to be paying his wage instead of signing someone else. More importantly how funny is this whole Countinho saga.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:28:00
I don't want him back, he has been a great icon but his age and lack of mobility are a concern as is the expectation he will have of playing. I don't see that it makes sense for us at all.

As for Coutinho, I love that after tapping up VVD Liverpool are getting a taste of it.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 15:03:57
Got to say its time to move on. Felt really sorry he couldn't play in the Uefa final after all he did to get us there and what he did last season but to pay his wages again now seems daft but it would be a real slap in the teeth to Rashford and Martial now if they were edged out to accomodate him.

Dont forget these are big seasons now for Martial and Rashford, throw Ibra in and I think you won't see the best of those young lads.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 15:06:17
If he's happy to accept a bit part role playing as an when and wages aren't too high I'd be ok to have him in the dressing room.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:27
Totally agree with that mort. if we need goals and they aren't coming from the young ones. (who deserve their chance) . He's handy to have around.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 15:19:58
I think his experience and stature could prove to be vital come the business end of the season when we are hopefully still challenging.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 15:28:48
Hopefully on Feb 1 next year we will still be challenging for 4 trophies. Jose likes his big powerful strikers and lukako can't play every game. Having ibra around gives us 2 powerful strikers and 2 speedy ones so we have good options.
As long as the deal is sensible wages wise it's a yes let's keep him from me.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 15:44:03
More deluded ridiculous nonsense on their page again, asking the ed about it the ed telling them he wants to go and then the heads go firmly in the sand refusing to believe that their South American icon wants to play for Barcelona. deja vu anyone 😂😂.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 18:18:45
Ibra coming in when he's fit until the end of the season is a good move. It will keep the forwards on their toes knowing that he's coming, and will bring that vital experience he too. I know people will say that it will block younger players but think of it this way, they all have from now until then to cement a place in the side, to prove they are good enough to keep him out of the team.

9.) 11 Aug 2017 19:08:17
And do you think he will sign a deal knowing he has to rotate danny?

It's a bad move imo we should be building a side that gets lukaku 40 goals a season and a few from the supporting cast . I love ibra and I'm grateful for some of the special moments last season but I think it's time to move forward and I think with ibra signing again it will stunt our forward momentum.



31 Aug 2015 17:40:49
Rumours that Wilson could go out on loan to WBA too. That would mean Januzaj, Wilson and Chicarito all going out with only Martial coming in at the moment. They must be more coming in at least a wide player or striker


1.) 31 Aug 2015 18:57:23
One more striker is surely in

2.) 31 Aug 2015 19:30:58
I think that Berbatov is available



02 Jun 2015 14:04:04
Have to say Madrid have been very shrewd with the DDG transfer. Get Benitez in which will cause a bit of unrest with fans then sign DDG to smooth things over. No matter what u think of how they conduct themselves, they are good at what they do.


1.) 02 Jun 2015 15:06:09
Madrid have just got that pull about them being 10x champions league winners and being a part of the so called Galacticos but they do a lot of things wrong in my eyes including letting Carlo Ancelotti go. I don't see Benitez as a step up and I think it won't be long until the fans are calling for his head when he fails to topple Barca. Getting rid of a manager who just won the Champions League just because they failed this year by a point or what ever is ridiculous and if it were chelsea we would be slamming them. Too much respect for Madrid in my eyes no matter how good they can be.

2.) 02 Jun 2015 15:11:17
Madrid are an absolute toxic club.

3.) 02 Jun 2015 16:18:31
Benitez isn't just a step down, he's the whole bloody staircase!

4.) 02 Jun 2015 16:33:32
If its on sky i beleive it! If he wants to go let's get at least £30mil snd push for lloris

06 Jun 2019 23:09:00
The most depressing thing about that pathetic England performance was the knowledge that Lingard would be replicating that abysmal performance for us again next season. Was he the worse substitution ever made in any sport ever.


{Ed004's Note - I thought he played quite well? Unfortunate not to score and had a decent attempt shortly after.}

1.) 06 Jun 2019 23:35:29
I thought he played really well and was an inch away from getting the winner. I actually txt a mate saying I hope this is the Lingard we get next season, was running at themand creating a lot of space.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 23:38:49
This has to be a joke surely, i am not lingards biggest fan but he was pretty decent when he came on today, linked up well and made some good runs.

Englands problem is they have no midfield and struggle to keep ball posession and have defenders who are prone to individual errors. Seems quite familiar to us come to think of it.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 23:39:49
Jesse played ok. Took his offside goal very well and caused problems in the Dutch defence.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 06:17:51
He had a decent game. What we miss is a Modric type player who can move the ball through midfield quickly. That could be the difference for this generation of England players.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 06:26:03
People see what they want to see.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 09:52:20
Jessie did more when he came on than the 100m rated Sancho did before he came off.

So do you no longer want Sancho? Internationals are notoriously difficult to judge a player by. Messi hardly ever plays well for Argentina, yet is still arguably the greatest footballer of all time.
When you are dropped into a new team with a different playing style, different players, different expectations, with little time to train and work together. All combine to make international football disjointed, making it hard for anyone to play well consistently at that level.

How many players have been bought on the back of a good world cup then flopped? And how many have gone into a tournament expected to rip it up only to struggle.

This post is just another pathetic attempt to shoot down one of our own players, one who has come through the academy and one of the few who gives 100% out on the pitch every week.

This is why our fans are labelled pathetic glory supporters.

7.) 07 Jun 2019 09:54:29
Lingard did well, that English defense though, mot so much!

8.) 07 Jun 2019 10:25:02
Not sure I was watching the same match! Lingard was great when he came on and unfortunate not to start IMO. GS got in wrong last night, it should have been a back 3 with our wide players doubling up. We were never going to have much joy through the middle. Lingard as a second striker/ no10 dropping into the space would have been far more effective.

9.) 07 Jun 2019 10:37:16
Boys lingard did OK, just OK,
He had another chance opened up his body and hit the corner flag,
That's what he should be for united a good sub, you'll win no league with Jesse starting every game.
Memphis looked a better player last night.
I mean Jesse is no Scholes, or a silva or a de bruyne, I could go on but I won't.

10.) 07 Jun 2019 12:22:05
Agree with Leahy12, Can we challenge for titles with Lingard? "NO"
He was average yesterday and saw someone comparing him with Modirc, Really?

11.) 07 Jun 2019 12:42:27
Agreed leehy, never been a lingard admirer. Not sure what he does?
Depay was superb.

12.) 07 Jun 2019 13:04:34
Leahy, why are you comparing Jesse with Scholes, Silva and De Bruyne?

There's no reason at all to compare players, but if you insist, it should be Pogba that you are comparing to those players, not Jesse.

13.) 07 Jun 2019 13:25:38
Wazza because they are the type of midfield players you need to win leagues and cups.

14.) 07 Jun 2019 14:23:27
Maybe if we keep him long enough jesse will score. Winning goal in an fa cup final. Oh wait.

15.) 07 Jun 2019 16:22:20
Leahy, yes, but isn't Pogba supposed to be that player for us?

Or are you admitting that Lingard is above Pogba, but under at the level of KdB, etc.?

16.) 06 Jun 2019 23:44:02
I thought he did ok to ed004
Weak in midfield and awful at the back.
It will be analysed to death but just awful defending by stones.
3 poor decisions within the space of 6 seconds.
Some other observations
Depay was as wasteful as ever but still got an assist for the stats people quote without watching games. But he did show he has improved somewhat.
Deligt good goal big error. That wrote aside he played well.
Vvd looked foot perfect.
Donny van der beek looks a player every time i see him.
Sancho likewise.
Kane looks unfit
85m for maguire is ludicrous.



30 Apr 2019 20:37:54
Utd should be using their affiliation with Van der Saar to buy Van der Beek and De Ligt whatever the cost. Superb players wouldn't cost as much as some players we have been linked with and they display the right attitude on the pitch work hard for everything.


1.) 30 Apr 2019 20:48:52
Whats the point in buying these ajax players who are doing so well to play a style of football that is the complete opposite of what they are doing now?

This ajax team builds up play from the back, presses in a cordinated fashion and has the majority of ball posession.

Under ole we have sat back and relied on counter attacks apart from a brief period when he initially took over.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 20:51:52
I agree but what makes you think either would want to come here?

3.) 30 Apr 2019 20:55:37
That Daley Blind looks decent too.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 20:59:59
The system is so relevant.

I’m not sure how Ole wants us to play yet. His purchases in the summer will tell us.

5.) 30 Apr 2019 21:04:46
Tony I was so gutted to see blind go. Always thought he was underrated. Brilliant footballing brain but lacked speed or strength. How we kept Jones, smalling and Rojo before him I’ll never know. Would have been decent in defensive midfield too. Glad to see him doing so well.

6.) 30 Apr 2019 21:06:50
AJH, we should re-sign Daley, just to admire him.

7.) 30 Apr 2019 21:29:39
Got lovely hair aswell.

8.) 30 Apr 2019 21:44:15
Those cheek bones 👌.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 22:59:04
We have had a few players like blind and still have half a dozen or more that are obviously good players but are not suited to the epl either now or in some cases ever.



20 Mar 2019 19:25:27
Pogba saying it would be a dream to play for Madrid and especially Zidane, I'd cash in on him if Madrid want to buy if they offer £150 million. Maybe buy a midfielder that turns up most games.


1.) 20 Mar 2019 19:54:50
Yep sell our best player, seems like a sound strategy.

2.) 20 Mar 2019 19:58:08
I’d take half of that to get him out of the club. He’s poison. There’s a reason he was moved on once before.

3.) 20 Mar 2019 20:28:10
First of DSG our best player is the one who has won our player of the year nearly every year for the last 5 years. You know DDG the best goalkeeper in the world and who turns up nearly every single week.

On form Pogba is one of the best players on the planet. However, that form comes sporadically at best. Where was he in the first game against PSG? Where was he in the vital game against Arsenal in the race for the top four?

Yeah sure, he does it against the Huddersfield's and the Bournemouth's. But does he do it when we really need it?

Then there is his behaviour during the first half of the season. i am no fan of Jose Mourinho, and I can understand Pogba's and the rest of the squads frustration. But you don't act like that if you have any respect for the club.

Sir Alex let Pogba go once before, and that might have been for a good reason. After all the one thing Sir Alex was excellent at was his judge of character.

If he wants to stay and fight for the club, learn and improve himself then great, I'm all for it. However, if he thinks he has nothing to improve on, and if he isn't prepared to fight when we need him to, and if he is going to bat his eyelashes towards Spain every summer then he is best off leaving sooner rather than later.

I wouldn't want Ole or whoever is our manager next season to start to build a side around him only for him to leave the following summer when the opportunity arises.

4.) 20 Mar 2019 20:29:04
Our best player is de gea.

5.) 20 Mar 2019 21:08:32
Ddg no1.

6.) 20 Mar 2019 21:43:23
Well i think pogba is our best player, but de gea is obviously worth a shout.

On the topic of de gea, its not like he's not fluttered his eye lashes at madrid pretty much every summer and still won't commit to a club that is willing to make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the world by a considerable distance. Hardly the benchmark for loyalty.

Also he also has clear areas to improve, like commanding his area, catching the ball instead of those weak punches (we all saw that one against psg in the last minute), playing out from the back with his feet and coming out of his area to sweep when we play a high line. Everything a modern gk has to do in todays game.

Also this idea that pogba only turns up against small teams is farcical. Who scored and set up the goal against chelsea this season, the killer pass against spurs, the comeback against city last season and the europa league final. Hardly a flat track bully.

If he wants to leave then fair enough he will leave but i sure wouldn't trust ed woodward to bring in a half decent replacement with the money pogba brings us.

Maybe just maybe we bring in players of pogbas level to improve the team instead of a past it chilean who is the highest paid player at the club yet is doing an awful impression of bebe or obertan.

7.) 20 Mar 2019 23:42:42
If a player’s heart or for that matter anybody including the manager is not with the club then he should leave. It’s not fair to himself nor the club. Same as if you are not happy working for the company then you should leave else there won’t be any productivity.
I’m not advocating Pogba to leave but there is no fire without a spark in what he said. Besides he has a good relationship with ZZ and they’re both French.
So if I were OGS I’d speak to Pogba openly and let him go if he wants to. Ensure commitment for next season. I’m sure there are good alternatives to Pogba. It’s a matter of who is right for the team and not any individual players. Of course it would help if individual players a good.
As I have been saying let OGS do his work and we can decide end of season. No hurry to confirm him. If the board wants to do benit else just see where we end up. No point pressuring him and convoluting the situation. But of course OGS can start to work on transfer list as per like he will be confirmed as next season manager. No harm on that.

8.) 21 Mar 2019 05:15:28
Hard to disagree with DSG.
Pogba is our best creative outlet. Nobody in our team can pick out passes like him.
None in our midfield has the ability to skip past players and threaten inside the box like he does.
He does have lapses in concentration, but we wouldn't have had the recent winning run without him.

Herrera, Matic, Fred, Mctominay, Andreas make too many square or easy passes.
Although they do decent job off the ball, none of them have the game changing ability like Pogaba.

9.) 21 Mar 2019 05:38:38
TRD I’d agree with you and DSG that Pogba is our best and most creative midfielder. Without a doubt.
But he has to learn about what to say and what not to say.
You don’t find KDB coming out to say a lot about RM or Barcelona etc? Or for that matter Mbappe? Or de Silva?
There has to be respect for the club and discipline. Of course we don’t know in what context Pogba was commenting and the toxic spin the media is spinning for clicks from readership.
But I just feel that the players these days have to be careful and behave else the free press will totally spin the story especially Man Utd is such a hated club that a lot wants to see messy and buried. Why not? Big club big story. Anyway best is leave it to the board to handle and just enjoy life 🤣🤣. I’m just happy I can live long enough to still support my club 🤙✊.

10.) 21 Mar 2019 09:19:17
Maybe you don't see kdb doing it because he is surrounded by quality players and feels like the team are going places.

Who does pogba see in the dressing room that is on his level, de gea? But even he is stalling on a new contract and would like to move elsewhere. Majority of the squad is full of mediocre players like young, smalling, jones, rojo, darmian, sanchez, fred etc.

I am not surprised he wants to leave and compete for the biggest trophies, he has been here for 5 windows now and we haven't bought anyone remotely on his level.

11.) 21 Mar 2019 10:30:30
Exactly, KDB has top class Silva's to play alongside him. They are nailed on to win trophies with the quality investments which they have made.

On the other hand, United have very few quality players.
Although we have some promising youngsters, they are largely inconsistent.
In order to address this issue, we must buy smartly right from this summer.
The youngsters need quality players to look upto and guide them.
Appointing a fitting DoF will be the first huge step in the right direction.

12.) 21 Mar 2019 11:45:21
"utd have very few quality players" and "he has been here for 5 windows now and we haven't bought anyone remotely on his level. " are powerful statements to make!
However, add the fact that pogba only turns on a performance 1 in 3/ 4 games and it blows his overinflated ego and the statements out of the water. Its widely agreed his talent on the day but his attitude although improved from JM days is a bit better his statements and antics do him no favours. As was said earlier if he wants out the club should do everything humanly possible to facilitate and gt someone in who wants to be there.

13.) 21 Mar 2019 17:58:40
Completely agree Shappy, great points.

14.) 22 Mar 2019 13:47:50
Man city players are not distracted by a make shift defence and as soon as they get back on the ball it's sent forward with ease and confidence

Man Utd players have to constantly track back because we fail do do the simple things in defence! When we try to get the ball moving forward? We pass it to the opposition over and over 9 times out of 10 till our forward players drop deep and make an attempt at goal.

When we finally sign players to replace the overrated players who can't pass the ball! We might finally click and score goals.



10 Feb 2019 17:15:32
Not only have we managed to get ahead on points in the race to 4th but our goal difference is now greater than that of arsenal and city which is some feat given we had a negative good at Christmas.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 18:16:17
Sure is to get better than City!

2.) 10 Feb 2019 19:32:59
sorry meant chelsea.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 20:49:08
Totally agree jaimej79.what a transformation. Where will it lead us to?

4.) 11 Feb 2019 09:00:12
Amazing result yesterday 9 goal swing on goal difference puts Utd in the driving seat for top 4.



02 Jan 2019 12:40:42
Skriniar apparently could be available for €80 million according to Tuttosport. Would anyone else like him signed.


{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho would.}

Initial reports we bid £40 million yesterday do you believe clowns like Ed have gone straight to £55 million in a day, took us a month to buy a player at £15 million. I fully expect we will be overpaying for fourth or fifth choice players a week before the deadline closes, as usual.

The playing style? We have signed a RB and a sub. After all the promises after the Everton game of getting rid of useless players we have sold none. I think it’s safe to say the playing style will be the same as next year. Torture on the eyes.

i wish ole would go public tell pogba to put in a transfer request and tell him he can go if someone stumps up £150 million.


{Ed002's Note - That is not within his remit at all.}

About time a club stood firm to these agents and players. I would tell pogba he is staying this year get his head down and he can go next year or cry and he will besat in the reserves all season. It wouldn't effect his price and can we really attract a top level replacement when we can only offer mickey mouse thursday night cup.


{Ed002's Note - Players come and go - they are transient employees. Will you be upset with Pinho if Fernandes joins from Sporting? Were you upset with Fellaini's agent when he left?}

AWB very happy with his signing, CB two CM and a RW, possibly striker if we manage to find someone mug enough to take Lukaku. Struggle with opinions that Dalot or James starting RW, one is a defender still learning his trade and the other was bang average in the championship. A proper RW please.

more concerned about going into the season without a goal scorer.
