Hi ed002.
You said that pogba and martial will obviously stay if we can't do deals for them.
Should any club move for them at this late stage are the club in a position to replace them with incoming players at this point?
So isuppose i'm asking is there a couple of deals for potential incoming players dependent on the sale of pogba and martial. I would imagine any player or club that we are looking to do deals with would be less keen to sell later in the window.


{Ed002's Note - Yes. The transfer window is still open Ken. The club has targets, as you know.}



01 Aug 2018 08:48:30
Hi ed002. Is there any truth in the stories circulating with regard to smalling moving to wolves potentially and is there interest from everton in rojo?
I know you said that we would make these players available for transfer but that the club were finding it difficult to sell them.
Finally is any club showing interest in shaw?
Jose has played hin in a 5 at the back this pre season but seems to have avoided playing him in a straight Back n 4.


{Ed002's Note - Obviously both are available - Smalling should end up at Wolves, Rojo I don't know.}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 11:35:24
Thank you.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:10:41
Music to my ears Ed.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 14:08:28
The interest from Wolves in Smalling is genuine then Ed02? The reporters with supposed close ties to Wolves are saying there's nothing in it.

{Ed002's Note - What did I just type? Were you banged on the head repeatedly as a child?}

4.) 01 Aug 2018 14:15:48
The only thing I've repeatedly banged is your mother.

{Ed002's Note - Interesting, she has been dead for a number of years.}

5.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:12
Panne go play somewhere else prat.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:28
Don’t go ruining it for all of us panne. Can’t get this information anywhere else but this site. Muppet.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:27:02
no need for that type of remark -.

8.) 01 Aug 2018 14:53:19
that's one less person on this site for a while.

Thanks for the update Ed02. As usual this is great info that without you and the other ed's we would not be privy to.

so thanks.

9.) 01 Aug 2018 15:19:51
No wonder the eds get p***ed of with stupid comments like that!

10.) 01 Aug 2018 15:58:06
Lads give him a break, he WAS banged on the head repeatedly as a child after all.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:32
Id bang his head if I had the chance. Prat.

12.) 01 Aug 2018 17:11:24
Good news Smalling is leaving. Some on here will be upset as they think Smalling plays like Maldini.

13.) 01 Aug 2018 17:40:42
Like maldini 😂😂.

14.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:04
I read this site multiple times every day but never post. However I just had to on this occasion just to say what an person.

I know ed002 can be a little dry at times (and I understand why) but that's not acceptable.
But, I must say that is probably the best put down response from ed that I have ever seen 😆.

15.) 01 Aug 2018 19:28:13
Smalling going finally. Never been at the level required, nor is Rojo. Just hope Jose has an ace up his sleeve. Preferably one named Toby.

Also truly hope it means we see the best of Bailly and Lindelof this season.

Looks like we are going into the season with the same full backs which is interesting, and maybe one more addition for the right forward?

Looks like Martial is coming to a head too - I’ve never said anything else but good riddance to him also. Silky bad apple. Can’t be doing with it. We have one of them already and that’s enough in Jose 😂.

16.) 01 Aug 2018 19:33:06
I will be very surprised if smalling leaves this summer.

17.) 01 Aug 2018 19:43:24
I think smalling is much better than Jones and rojo lol.

18.) 01 Aug 2018 19:57:16
Welcome karllap.

19.) 01 Aug 2018 23:31:17
Jred SSN saying he has agreed terms. Could be happening.

20.) 02 Aug 2018 00:14:50
Eric79 you were saying what about Martial?

21.) 01 Aug 2018 23:37:36
Not from what I was told and I know the family .
But they are maybe not telling me the truth?

22.) 02 Aug 2018 09:21:46
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.

23.) 02 Aug 2018 09:23:46
Any truth in the Smalling rumours? Anyone?

24.) 02 Aug 2018 10:00:58
Smalling to Wolves was just a rumour, Wolves journalist's are saying both Mike and Rojo rumours are wide of the mark, but they are looking at the CB position.



22 Jul 2018 14:59:43
Any info on this youngster for Rochdale we are chasing Daniel Adshead. Meant to babe Benn very impressive during a trial game.
I love these types of signings as the me fill me with hope.


{Ed033's Note - Babe Benn fills you with what?

Easy typo for ken, he calls Benny Baller "babe" all the time in the WhatsApp group. Lol.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 13:39:32
Have turns to babe . Very turns to betty. I wonder if shaw turns into useless😂.



02 May 2018 22:27:26
I think it's crucial that we get off to a hot start next season from our current squad there are quite a few that will have no world cup at all which is good. But we also have quite a few that should go fairly deep in the tournament.
Let's hope all or players come back injury free.
Pre season gets messed up with players coming back at different times. Let's hope they all come back injury free.


1.) 03 May 2018 09:24:28
Let's also hope that the club prioritise being prepared for the big season ahead - not short term profit making taking up the focus with the manager/ players having to work around a commercial schedule. Pipe dream I know, but these things can be the difference maker in a highly competitive league.

I appreciate our rivals will also be on the commercial hunt, but stepping out of the pack could pay bigger dividends and give us a slight advantage, which we will probably need given how lethargic we have looked for 6+ years.

2.) 03 May 2018 17:33:01
Haven't posted in a while.

Lets hope we start to see more structure and organisation in the club ie boardroom, backroom staff. Still feel we still getting over a "hangover" since Sir Alex retired, in terms of we have declined and teams have caught up.

Feel like we have become dated in our approach. Still wondering why we haven't got a Director of Football at the club, unless Jose wants full control of the transfer within the club.

Our approach now until the beginning of next season will set the tone. Fans will be expecting us to compete and play more consistent. I feel like we are very inconsistent in terms of how the team plays. Manchester City have set a high standard. We must raise our game aswell or they will dominating the league as long Pep is their.

3.) 03 May 2018 18:54:56
Good post shane. The bar has been raised we must accept, meet, and overcome the challenge. In every aspect. We need a few good additions i'd like to see someone step up and become our leader on the pitch.

4.) 03 May 2018 19:17:03
If the bar had been raised then sterling would be the leagues top goal scorer.

5.) 03 May 2018 20:09:33
I agree. Valencia even though he been a great player for us throughout the years. He doesn't come off as a leader type. I know they generally give it to the player who has served the club the longest.

Personally we missing a Roy Keane character player even though their only probably a hand full of those types left. Daniele De Rossi comes to my mind.

Pogba is suppose to be a future captain. Is that because he a natural leader or because he is the biggest name at the club. He gets compared to Vieria a lot, but at this moment I don't see the sort of leadership (that Vieria had) in Pogba.

This is a example of what is needed in Pogba for example to truly become a great. If he wants to get better. Then it is the little things like this that will determine if he becomes a player that either fulfill this world class potential or be doesn't reach his full potential.

6.) 03 May 2018 23:19:04
Ken, we need a hot start, was that a typo? Did you mean head start? That’s what we need.

7.) 04 May 2018 10:40:07
Stand😁😁 it would be nice.



16 Feb 2018 15:31:49
Hi eds, is there any truth in the reports from turkey yesterday that fellaini has agreed a deal with fenerbece and signed a pre contract?


{Ed002's Note - I obviously have no idea about any reports in Turkey. I have explained for some months been explaining the situation and discussions that have been going on with Besiktas. If he has agreec a pre-contract with Fenerbahce I am afraid I am not the one to ask. I can't answer any questions about "what do you think of reports ..." Ken.}

1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:35:33
It was Besiktas, today he has been linked to Galatasaray. We will see.

Ed002 has been saying long ago Fellaini wanted out last Summer, and it was Mou who intervened.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 16:17:14
The reports were Besiktas.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense then. It is where I expect him to go.}

3.) 16 Feb 2018 16:19:32
Sorry ed my bad. i should have worded that differently.
Its obviously a false report.
Jose is obviously keen for him to stay but perhaps more regular game time is what he is after at this stage of his career.

4.) 17 Feb 2018 11:22:21
He needs to go. If he wants regular game time he has to go. If he stats he's just a bit part player and plan b. Frankly given the wages and his age its better he goes.

14 Feb 2019 19:34:04
I dislike monday night kick off's .
The weekend is not quite the same when everyone else played plays and we dont.

Tough game ahead of us. Chelsea have a decent home record and have a point to prove following the city thrashing.
Martial and jessie are out. Imo we will miss jessie more than the very inconsistent martial .
So who do we all think will start.
I think our midfield will stay as the usual 3 ( or should i say the only 3)
I hope the back 4 contains dalot. i'd like to see bailly and lindelof play together again.

Lukaku right rash left and sanchez through the middle is a possible combination.
At least our injuries are in an area where we have cover.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 20:24:20
Chong, rashford and lukaku. Greenwood on the bench and Sanchez on the sofa watching on tv.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 21:50:38
I can understand that point of view mort. Sanchez has been nothing short of awful but with martial out he might get a run of games in a more attacking system in a bid to recapture some form. I know its a long shot but we are not blessed with experienced options.
I don't think ole will throw kids into this game but i could well be wrong.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 06:07:00
I like your thought Ken.
Rashford and Lukaku, both have pace to play on the wing or as an inside forward.

It is better that Sanchez centrally, mostly near the penalty box. His ball control and finishing is still good in tight areas.
It is while trying to dribble where he loses possession.

Chong or Gomez can be brought on in the second half so that we can ease them in gradually.

4.) 15 Feb 2019 07:44:11
I really don’t understand how Sanchez is anywhere near the team, he continually stinks the place out. We all want him to play well but just willing it to happen isn’t working. I’d rather play Rashford, Lukaku and Gomez.

5.) 15 Feb 2019 09:16:15
I get that Ken. But as AJH says he's been awful and just hoping he suddenly comes good isn't enough. Maybe its time to try someone else. Give a young guy like Gomes or Chong a go instead. See if they're able to seize the chance like Rashford did.

6.) 15 Feb 2019 09:49:19
I hear you ajh and mort. As i say i don't think he will throw them in to this game.
Id be delighted if he did. If we had won on tuesday it might have been more likely.

7.) 15 Feb 2019 09:55:54
Could do 3-5-2, Lindelof smalling bailly

Dalot, herrera, matic, pogba, shaw

Lukaku rashford

Smalling and lukaku offers a bit more height and threat from corners, I like dalots crossing but his defensive side needs work so playing 3 at the back offers a bit more cover.

Would like to see chong and gomez on the bench, greenwood looks scary good but I want to hold him back for just a bit longer maybe last game or 2 of the season if they are dead rubbers.

8.) 15 Feb 2019 19:56:01
I don't think we're going to have the luxury of dead rubbers, mate. Unless it all goes t*ts up.

9.) 15 Feb 2019 21:44:45
I was thinking the same nou. Squeaky bum time i reckon.

10.) 15 Feb 2019 22:21:26
We won't know till much closer the time. We could be 4th with a 4 point gap to 5th or 5th with a 4 point gap to 4th or any other scenario with a game to go.

Greenwood looks the most promising player since 92. I want to do everything we can to make sure he progresses smoothly. There are people far more qualified than me to say when the times right so if its felt its best that he doesn't play this season I am fine with that no matter how much I want to see him play is the point I want to make.



13 Feb 2019 08:03:56
I would like to think that the last remaining supporters who think we have a really good squad no realise how wrong they are.
The lack of quality in depth and big game experience is very obvious.
No manager could have this squad competing to win the cl or the epl.

Both full backs are suspect still for me. Young was badly exposed for what he is last night a winger filling un.
Shaw has been decent but far from a stand iut left back.
Martial and rash showed last night that they are still very much b on a learning curve.
Pogba was extremely well marshelled by a cb playing in midfield and veratti reminded us all how scholes used to plat. the result wad disappointing given our recent run but mit really that surprising.
Our squad is poor full of average joes when it comes to competing with the best clubs being an ostrich and insisting this is a high quality squad is frankly talking Nonsense.

Im Loki n forward to the reaction from ole and the team. We can still get 4th and progress in the fa cup.

Its not all doom and gloom its just a reminder of how much work needs to be done in order to compete with the best.

They named 6 defenders last night in their team and they outclassed us in every are of the pitch missing 3 of their best players.




03 Feb 2019 18:52:05
Can we beat fulham whist giving matic pogba herrera and rashford a rest?
Lukaku mata dalot mctom fred smalling jones darmian may well all start v fulham. Its a tough call but not the toughest of teams so maybe worth the risk.
Our midfield 3 really do need to be at their best v psg.


1.) 03 Feb 2019 19:13:02
I’ve been thinking the same thing ken. Chelsea are at City next weekend so if we beat Fulham we will likely be 4th. One option is to go for the jugular in the first half and then take 3 off early. He rested a few against Burnley and we looked slow and cumbersome.

Martial has missed a game and a half so he could start, Lukaku has a point not to prove but it’s thenmidfield that looks very very light. I think Herrera looks ok but Matic and Pogba could do with a rest, not sure who we play though. Fulham are up, and down, mostly down so hop fully we can take control early and give ourselves options.

I’d give a Matic a few days r&r to recharge this week.

2.) 03 Feb 2019 22:37:59
No we can not beat fulham without those four players mentioned.

Pereira, fred and mctominay are not good enough to fit into midfield together, they struggled against reading. You could maybe play one of them but even then with pereira against burnley we still struggled.

Just play our best team in every game i say, with the odd rotation, dalot in for young, smalling/ jones in for bailly, sanchez/ lukaku/ mata in for lingard.

Ddg, shaw, lindelof, matic, herrera, pogba, martial and rashford need to play every game in this tough months coming up.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 23:31:23
Dsg, we have to find a way to rest this guys, even if only for second halves, or one at a time. Matic is already looking slow, Pogba's impact is sporadic.

If you burn out your players then you won't get top 4. There's a reason why teams with big squads finish higher in the league than others.

4.) 04 Feb 2019 06:13:56
The current squad do not have an able backup for Matic. His physicality cannot be matched by Andreas or Fred and Mctominay does not really have that calming presence.
Yesterday Matic's pinpoint through ball to Lingard (which he fluffed) was incredible.
Jones maybe :) ? He is physical and can cover a lot of ground. But he too may not bring that calming assurance at the back.



13 Jan 2019 18:26:06
Great win and a great team effort but for me 3 words sum it up.


1.) 13 Jan 2019 19:02:04
My blood pressure was sky high watching the 2nd half!

Good 1st half performance back to our old ways a bit in the 2nd half.

De Gea was sensational.

A great result.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 19:07:25
He is unbelievable. I run out of superlatives for him!



07 Jan 2019 21:53:39
Tough draw in the cup but it's one we can win.


1.) 08 Jan 2019 08:10:54
Sometimes it is the seemingly easy draws that end up tricky.

Hardly a word about it till Dortmund came to town.
Complete fabrication i'd say.
Scholes. Just watch between now and the end of the season how often united are linked with players playing in any high profile game.
The easiest way to get clicks and readers is to link united with a player.

Simple fresh he has a contract. We are in to him for 50m plus. He won't walk away without being paid off or without getting the same or the likes of that money from his new club.
With his form so bad its high investment and we are paying miles over the top.
Its the issue we face and the reason we can't shift squad players.

30 Jan 2019 19:47:01
I will be delighted when he leaves personally. I don't like his style of play i don't think a united team should ever play in a style that suits his best attributes.
He comes across as a nice bloke and he never gave less than his best efforts. However i will see his departure as the beginning of a new era and the beginning of an end to a tough 6 seasons with him being an ever present for them all.
He should never have been bought complete naivety by woodward at the time.
I will wish him well when he leaves but ill be delighted to move forward without him in the squad.

Their defence is appalling shappy but he is not showing his best albeit in a poor team.
Neves is ideal for us imo he can play any of the 3 midfield roles and has excelled for wolves all season and tore up the championship last season. He can mix it with the toughest of them and can play football with the best of them. Top player.

He was a player i think ed002 told us a year ago was not ready for a top club. He has not shown anything at monaco in a disaster season for the club.
He may flourish in a new environment and fulfill his potential but it all seems to have stalled for the moment for him.

Exactly angel.
Ole has done a great job so far. No complaints from the vast majority.
The club imo rightly decided not to buy in jan. Ole will to all he can. He has everyone pulling in the same direction. He has players that some fans me included were unhappy with playing better. He has players fans have said were not right for this club and should never have been bought playing better.
Changes will be made in the summer with a view to elevating the swuad from a top 6 team to a top team. It remains to be seen who will make those changes and who will be our manager. Until then all we can do as fans is get behind the manager and players we have, and ole can do as manager is get the best out of what he has. For me he has done exactly that.
Even missing lingard and martial tomorrow i go into this game with confidence. Chelsea are no PSG so we have enough to win this game.

Not at all jred. I never once slated ole for the psg game in fact i was one who posted no point over reacting. It was no surprise.
The squad is light every single poster on here agrees but you. Every pundit says it. But you have a different opinion you think we have a great squad. Your like the little boy in seasame street doing his own thing. Or an ostrich with his head in the sand.
Then on the other hand you say jose didn't make one good signing for tbe club yet 7 or 8 of them are in the squad you think is great.
I don't think anybody is sure which jred posts jred heyckle or jred hyde.
Nobody mentioned psg in this thread you are just as usual a little grumpy and looking for a fight.
Our squad is weak. Not only that when ole came it was in dissary he has worked wonders. But he can only do so much we will be exposed against the better teams most of the time because our players are not good enough. Especially after our first 14 or so.

You said jose didn't get one signing right for this club.
You don't want the players he signed here. You never did but nobody else is allowed have an opinion of their own.
