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.

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.

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.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 10:13:16
Thanks guys.



06 Nov 2017 09:22:30
A lot of depressed fans around and understandably so. However looking at it in another way, we can say we played 3 our of the supposed top 6 we drew at anfield, beat Spurs at Old Trafford and lost 1-0 to the defending champions at the bridge; a place where we were scored 4 goals last season.
Realistically, at the start of the season, how many fans thought we will have a different outcome form these 3 games? I have seen a lot of posts about of defense and some attributes of lack of from various players. But for me one thing that stood out yesterday was that Mhki is no Hazard.
We have a 100% record in the CL, something which shouldn't be brushed off bcos if you remember the last time we were in a similar group we ended up qualifying for Europa.
What hurts now is the gap between city and us. Will be tough to claw back, but not impossible.


1.) 06 Nov 2017 09:55:16
You think, based on the current squad that we had, we couldn't defeat a poor Liverpool side or even take the game to Chelsea?

I think the last two matches of the CL have been poor. The goal against Benefica (Away) was pure luck and so was the first goal we scored against them at home. We didn't take the game to them, if you remember correctly, then it was Benefica that looked like they might score, especially at Old Trafford.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 10:24:32
I think we have struggled since the player we have built our side around got injured. We were flying when Pogba was in the team, he got injured and we replaced him with Fellaini, he was no Pogba but we continued to get results. Then he got injured and we had to replace him with Herrera, since then we have struggled to get the results.

So yes considering our injuries and how those injuries have impacted the team then yes I don’t feel there is much else we could have done with the players available at the time to improve the result.

Our midfielders being out and our drop off in form also coincide with Lukaku picking up an injury playing for Belgium. He hasn’t looked quite the same since. He has missed a few chances in several games he was smashing away in the first few games this season. If he scored his chances in the last few games then we would have beaten both Liverpool and Chelsea in all likelihood.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 12:00:25
Sorry mbd, but yesterday you could easily have lost 4-0 again. Bakayoko alone could have had a hat trick!

4.) 06 Nov 2017 13:56:12
I hate to agree with Chelsea but he's right. We were well beaten a 1-0 defeat flattered us.

I was amazed how we approached the game and the space afforded to Hazard, Fabregas and Morata was criminal I have no idea what our game plan was yesterday, if we even had one? Very strange! Jose was even magnanimous in defeat.

We could have maybe nicked an equaliser at the end playing huff ball to Fellaini. He should have come in at HT instead of Miki, played higher up the pitch and we could have played over their high press which we just couldn't cope with. Our defenders aren't the strongest in possession and when they get pressed we can't retain the ball and give it away in dangerous areas. At least Fellaini might have given them something to think about. The fact he slotted in next to Matic and Herrra was baffling. He's not the best in possession himself and almost gave a couple of goals away losing possession around our box.

Conte got his tactics spot on and Jose had no answer.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 15:28:15
We also missed some good opportunities and Courtois made some good saves as well.



18 Jul 2017 10:26:14
Somewhat of a different post from the transfer/ friendlies trend.
I remember Ed002 saying something along the line of LVG being sacked due to toxic fans and that the board had a plan and a replacement lined up after the 3 year deal. We however ended up with Mou because the plan was hindered. ( I hope i am not misquoting Ed002))
Also a lot of posters assumed that the replacement would have been Alegri.
Now that being said, and with the current trend of things at Juve (Bonucci saga, not being able to control Alves and rumours of bust ups with other payers), would Utd fans see missing out on Alegri as a bullet dodged or still think he would have been good for us?


1.) 18 Jul 2017 14:48:15
It's hard to say mbd.

He doesn't know the premier league and although he's done a great job at Juventus, there's no real way of knowing how we would have dome with us.

Conte was able to jump from Serie A to the PL so who's to say Alegri Couldn't?

Either way, we've got Jose mow!

2.) 18 Jul 2017 16:53:42
We won a few trophies last season and we're now a year further down the line in a much needed rebuild. Would we have Pogba if LvG was in charge last summer? Conte and Pep with a year head start on Alegri, who would need time to adjust? I'm happy with how the cards fell.

I agree with Brendan and Shappy. Although Off my head available keepers that i wouldn't mind seeing come in are
Yann Sommer
If fit Mattia Perin
Bernd Leno

From these 3, if Perin can stay fit, I'd say he will be the only one better than Romero, the other 2 I put at par. But this is just my opinion.

Stand-U I think that was quite a harsh assessment. Matic hasn't been poor since Christmas, may have had an off game or so but certainly not poor. I also think young's form in the twilight of his career has to be mentioned.
We can never be more boring than we were under LvG.

Bale for many reasons:
1. RW is a priority
2. Ed 004's reason
3. Like DSG said, mou won't play both Luka and Lewa.
4. Bale is a year younger and shouldn't need time to adjust to the EPL and its baggage.
5. Bale is easier to spell :)

People keep forgetting that Mou did not sell Salah while at chelsea. Salah was on loan at Roma and when his deal was made permanent, Mourinho was Utd's coach.

We see so many terms thrown around, from tackle from behind to push in the back. Personally I believe if you make a challenge and don win the ball but get the player instead then it is a foul ergo a Penalty.
Pity a great game from Juve ended this way but sadly it did.
Would the player had scored if the defender hadn't tackled him, is another debate on its own.
If this was Utd instead of Juve I'd say we let ourselves down in the 1st leg and our defense didn't concentrate in the dying minute to let CR7 and Vasquez get into such positions, no matter how painful that admission would be.
