Does anyone here know anything about the us being linked with Leon Bailey and Lorenzo Pellegrini.
Personally have no idea of their quality. But as we all know. it's the season for tabloids to throw names and see which will stick.


{Ed002's Note - Pellegrini is of interest but Roma do not want to sell him. Another English side had a proposal rejected. Roma have a number of folks in London for a couple of days this week where Monchi will read the riot act and they will look to unload some of their surplus players to raise some money. Don't hold your breath. Leon Bailey was of interest to Chelsea when Mourinho was manager so it is possible. Again there is a not for sale flag.}

Ed, I know you don’t like putting timescales on things and January is a difficult month to buy players etc, but would you say it’s more likely we will wait till summer now, rather than sign anyone this month just for the sake of it? I can’t see many of our top targets being available and we don’t seem close to any deal. Your opinion would be appreciated or any new info you’ve recently heard. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, I am sure something will happen in January if they can make it.}

2.) 09 Jan 2018 13:13:03
Thank you for the quick response Ed.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 15:08:39
Cheers Ed, much appreciated.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 04:00:18
I’m still convinced Ed002 is the head of the CIA, NSA, or MI6. Only explanation. Even Jorge mendes and pini zahavi check this site for insider info. :)

{Ed001's Note - I met Jorge Mendes once out here, the only thing he said to me was 'who is Ed002?'}

Does anyone know if reports of Mou being overly frustrated by Woodward's transfer policy are true?


1.) 03 Jan 2018 10:39:22
I'd suggest just listening to jose. He most definitely is annoyed at the transfer policy.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 10:47:44
Probably because mourinho seems frustrated in general everytime I've seen him.

For someone whose the highest paid manager in the league with pretty much free reign at the biggest club in the world, he sure could lighten up a bit.

As far as transfers go, what more could woodward have done, he's backed him with bailly, micky, pogba, lindelof, matic and lukaku. He even brought his buddy zlatan in and then resigned his buddy zlatan when he clearly had a serious injury and would struggle to recover.

People will obviously point to perisic and maybe a left back, but is that really the difference between us and city?

3.) 03 Jan 2018 12:22:58
Its not as simple as that DSG, your speculating far too much. Of course there's a big reason for the speculation, but your just making stuff up.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 12:20:28
Ed002 mentioned that Bailly wasnt a Mourinho signing.

5.) 03 Jan 2018 20:03:12
FZZ what have i made up? Genuinely curious

EL LOCO, well who ever signed bailly should probably sign some more player because he's been quality since he joined.

6.) 03 Jan 2018 21:57:07
Your whole 3rd paragraph is made up.

7.) 04 Jan 2018 18:41:51
How? It is a fact we have signed those players.

Also its pretty much a fact that Zlatan is joses buddy.

Bale rumors resurfacing and snowballing.


1.) 05 Oct 2016 08:19:13
And will probably just melt away like every other year.

2.) 05 Oct 2016 14:15:28
Makes perfect sense. Bale on the right. Rashford up front. Griezmann number 10. Martial on the left.

Got to love (hate) the tabloids.

{Ed004's Note - With Pogba behind them all obviously...}

Apparently Zlatan deal is done pending a post Euro medical.


1.) 14 Jun 2016 15:41:06
This seems to be the worst kept secret since Jose Mourinho.

2.) 14 Jun 2016 15:44:50
I'm delighted with that news. Not everyone will be pleased but imo it will be a great signing. I'm hoping we see a lot from him and a great deal more from Bastian next season too those 2 senior pros could be the catalyst for a great season.

Sentiments aside, Shaw had an awful game. Darmian did better in 15 minutes than shaw did in 75 minutes on the left flank. That tells us a lot. Tuanzebe also played match better when shaw was taken off. It is harsh to judge a player by 1 preseason game, but has it really been only one game? Pity Demetri Mitchel wasn't given a run.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 12:53:04
Shaw still has such potential, however, he is a player who needs to be let loose in a more attacking team. Those games at the start of his second season before his injury he was our best player and key offensive threat. The talents there, but Mourinho isn't the man to get it out of him. To get into Mourinho's team he has to play Mourinho's way, which for Shaw is like playing with the handbrake on. He is better going forward than he is defending. Our set up stops him doing what he's best at and makes him focus on what he's worst at. He probably needs to move on sadly, I expect him to kick in and play well wherever he goes.

I don't think Mitchell would benefit much from Mourinho's tactics either. Being a former winger and only playing full back for the last few years he is a more offensive full back than Jose would like. He would probably suffer the same fate as Shaw, where he would be made to do the things he worst at and restricted from doing what he's best at.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 13:27:40
You say Shaw is better going forward but his delivery into the box is terrible, I think he has only ever made 4 or 5 assists, never scored for United either, that is not down to Mourinho. Most of the time the best he offers is just that he is another body for the opposition to mark.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 13:44:52
Shappy what makes you think shaw has potential to be top class. Are you bading that in the 1 good seadon he had at Southampton when he was 17? He has not played 10 consecutive games for 4 years and not made 1 tip class performance for 3 seasons so what are you basing your judgement on?
Lots of teenagers don't follow through. A lot more don't than do but essential shaw has done nothing in 4 years to suggest he will be a top player but has done plenty to suggest he won't be.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 13:46:45
So Shappy, you are basing his sky reaching talents on 10 games?

5.) 26 Jul 2018 14:40:25
I said Shaw has potential, it's still there, his pace, control and ability to beat players is still there. Unfortunately there has been no development in his game over the last few years, years in which he has had an injury that would have ended his career 25 years ago. A change in managers, and no consistency in selection. I'm not saying kits everyone's fault but his own, he has to take a lot of the blame for not keeping himself in shape, for not focusing enough on his profession and for clearly rubbing Mourinho up the wrong way.

However, there are circumstances that haven't helped him. If the penny can drop and he has the support and encouragement he needs there is no reason why he can't start to fulfill that potential.

Will the penny drop? Maybe. Will he be given the support and encouragement from those inside the club? Maybe, although I would say it's unlikely to come from Mourinho.

I doubt he will live up to that potential, but I don't think the club or the fans should turn their backs on a young player who has been unfortunate as well as a little foolish so quickly.

I have said many times on here that the positions we need to sort out above all others in the full back positions. I think someone should come in at LB to challenge Shaw. There is nothing wrong with having two good players for one position. If Shaw raises to the challenge then great, if not then then he can leave and we can say we gave him every chance.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 14:58:46
Shappy, yesterday he was played as a wing back. I don't know how much more of an offensive set up can am attacking LB want. He was making runs only to misplace passes, mis-control or simply pass back. When Darmian outshines you in 15 minutes at left back then I am sorry, you aren't good enough. It is for this reason I asked about Demetri, just like mou kept faiith with former wingers last season in young and valencia.

7.) 26 Jul 2018 15:27:36
Ken, couldn't agree more. I've been saying for two seasons that Shaw is a terrible player. I just do not see the love in people have for him. His defensive positioning is non existent. His attacking qualities are not great as his ball control is terrible. We need to get rid of him sooner rather than later. I cannot stand the guy.

8.) 26 Jul 2018 15:34:34
Shaw was incredible before he broke his leg and that was under the woeful LVG. There is magic there, just wrong manager to bring it out in him.

Shaw is at fault as well, but if he is prone to weight/ attitude issues, then why drop him after being one of the best players on the pitch, several times last season?

Surely a manager should be able to hone the talent and work on the issues, not stifle the talent and encourage the issues?!

9.) 26 Jul 2018 16:25:08
Never once was he the best player on a pitch last season or in any of the 4 seasons he has been here beast. Bang average. Never played 10 consecutive games. Bowles signing and if he was forgein he would be getting lashed on here. Lazy and useless i'd say.

10.) 26 Jul 2018 16:54:16
Sometimes we see things differently Ken.

11.) 26 Jul 2018 17:40:01
True mate.

12.) 26 Jul 2018 19:34:05
Shaw is terrible. If he wasn’t English we’d not care.

Read this somewhere and figured it is worth a giggle when shared.
'Fairplay to Arsenal. They did the whole Ferguson to Moyes thing without even sacking their manager. "

Hey the initial post has (at time of posting) 8-2 in likes! Ah, the old days, when we could score eight!

We got Sevilla in round of 16.
First leg in spain. Not bad.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 14:58:49
Could be worse but could also be tricky, Goodluck lads I expect you to get through this one.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 18:02:47
good draw for you as well JBLP. I expect strong showing from the english teams this year. Could be all that we are playing for with City almost certainly winning the league.



07 Dec 2017 16:30:06
Was reading a report by one Jim White about how Old Trafford facilities are deteriorating and we are far behind on upgrades when compared to the other clubs.
Can our usual OT faithfuls here shed some light on this issue for me?


{Ed002's Note - I explained about this some time ago - maybe two or three years. Try searching on Ikea.}

1.) 07 Dec 2017 19:48:18

Take a look at my post on 30th Nov in reply to Jred.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 23:43:44
Old Trafford is more of a traditional stadium than all these modern stadiums. Having been numerous of times to matches and doing stadium tours.

General consensus is that they want to keep the tradition within the club. It does indeed look dated in certain sections. Definitely the red flooring that's looks like more 60s than anything.

Thank you Ed for this information. Personally, I think had the club made their intentions a bit clearer to the fans, we would have been more understanding. Now we are reaping what we sowed. Seems all parties are to blame here.


{Ed002's Note - The club know it is a waste of time and brings nothing but grief to try and share such information with the fans. And as soon as the fans turn then all communication closes down, as it did at MU; Everton is another example.}

Shappy, I appreciate the point you are trying to make, however; what if Romero's recovery hits a snag or after his recovery he decides he wants regular football? Would you rather have the youngster be our number 2 or Grant? (at least until a replacement is made)

I think if u lose the ball in your half with a lazy attempt at showboating and then you make a lackluster attempt to track back and atone for mistake, you should be the last person to say 'attack attack attack'. Had i been standing next to him I'd have given him a smack on the head for being a spoilt brat. That being said, we lack a captain who won't tolerate such nonsense on the pitch and will reprimand players who attempt this among other things.

You can add Young Lingard Fellaini and to an extent even valencia to your yet to return list.
