Does anyone know if the club uS started any negotiations for a January signing?


1.) 06 Jan 2018 10:07:14
I hope so! Real lack of pace, creativity and enthusiasm in the center. I still think we need a real leader. Really wish we would press teams and dominate the ball like City and Liverpool (never thought I’d ever say that! ) . Kind of feel for Mkhitaryan but so low on confidence and not playing well, getting hooked off at HT last night really proves he’s going to be out the door some point soon.



09 Aug 2017 22:24:49
Ed 002 do you expect us to make more signings before the window closes?


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 09 Aug 2017 23:36:56
Ed if United don't sign the left sided player they are after, will they make a move for Bale, cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - RTFP.}

2.) 10 Aug 2017 11:41:52
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Ed 002 I really enjoy your responses πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ£.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 12:04:39
With the arrival of Neymar at PSG, do you think there could be interest in Draxler? Think he would be a quality addition!

4.) 10 Aug 2017 13:31:03
Am I the only one who doesn't know what RTFP means?

{Ed007's Note - Probably. Try rearranging these letters - Ed sets a pitchfork gun.}

5.) 10 Aug 2017 13:43:35
Reckon ed nailed it in the sharkopod we will go in for danny rose.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 13:56:26
I just googled RTFP and it suggests Regional Trade Facilitation Project. What's that got to do with Bale? haha.

{Ed007's Note - Well he is Welsh and the project is to facilitate his trade to another region i.e. England/Manchester - so that works for me!}

7.) 10 Aug 2017 14:24:50
hahahahahaha brilliant.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 14:28:37
Draxler only moved in January.

9.) 10 Aug 2017 15:44:41
Just to help you out READ THE F*****G Page.

{Ed007's Note - That's not right.}

10.) 10 Aug 2017 16:11:27
Hahaha guy. So sure of yourself and still got it wrong πŸ˜‚.

11.) 10 Aug 2017 16:13:09
*Effing post.

12.) 10 Aug 2017 23:10:33
Cheers ed002 I see you basically got asked the same question on the real Madrid page again but you gave an civil answer. Sorry to have bothered you.

{Ed002's Note - Might be best if you didn't bother asking any more questions then.}

13.) 11 Aug 2017 14:38:18
I believe it stands for "Rainfish Trombone Feels Porpoises".

14.) 11 Aug 2017 19:32:51
Which Ed cut that you cheeky git hahahaha.



09 Aug 2017 20:36:27
A lot of back lash from last night, but it might be the making of us. They now know the level required and hard work needed. Now Jose get to work.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 20:46:29
Spot on Redcon.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 20:59:33
No that's it, that's as good as we can play . We won't get any better, we won't gel, the players won't get fitter the team won't improve .
You don't get any better than your last game of pre season .

And this is the real scary bit every other team will play as well as they possible can, all the other players than have been bought will be amazing from day 1 and other team will have a loss of form. or even an Injury.

We are doomed.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 21:32:06
Irony really is the lowest form of wit.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 06:12:02
Thought that was sarcasm fabs? 😜.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 06:35:40
I think you'll find ironing is an extreme sport. Maybe you were looking for sarcasm?

6.) 10 Aug 2017 17:44:02
Oh the sarcasm.
Oh the irony?



08 Jul 2017 13:23:52
Anyone know if we are still pursuing Perisic and Rodriguez?




10 Jun 2017 23:40:52
Morta is done too, we are getting it done early as Jose requested.

We started last season playing fast attacking football scoring goals at will, we need a sustained style this year. So all the Jose's negative style comments, are not true it is in there we just need to up the speed of our play as we did at the start of last season for th season.


1.) 19 Jul 2018 13:17:52
Okay, we’ll just ignore Jose’s entire management career - king of attacking football.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 14:55:09
This season we will play negative pragmatic football. We will be narrow and deep, and hope to spring teams on the counter. In some games it will work in others it won't. The fans will slowly grow tired of boring slow football after 5 transfer windows and none of the players they want signed. Jose will struggle to compete and grow sulkier and sulkier, taking it out on his players until he loses the dressing room. At which point the club will have to sack Jose and have no one in place to replace him and make another poor appointment in a rush. We will likely finish outside the top four because of the off field commotion which puts pressure immediately on the new manager. We will likely have sold or disinterested some of our best young players so they will either have left already or will push to leave. They will have been replaced by 29-33 year olds who can't hack it anymore or are starting to wind down. The squad will still need 5-6 new players because the youth haven't been developed and the older players have got too old.

United will look back and realise like they did with Moyes and LVG that Mourinho wasn't the right fit for our club and he was a bad appointment. This is Jose's self destruct season, sit back and watch.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 15:35:51
While u are at it, Why don't you give us the winning lotto numbers for the weekend as well Shappy? :)

4.) 19 Jul 2018 16:40:53
But who takes over? And when is the person that keeps making bad appointments held accountable?



14 Jul 2018 09:21:07
I have a bad feeling we will all be disappointed this year with our summer transfer window, there only a few weeks left and so many positions to improve. I thought we would have 90% done by now. Even departures are slow. Are we in for a frenzy in the last few weeks?


1.) 14 Jul 2018 09:45:54
Mourinho in April:

"We are not going to spend more than we can. We are not going to do anything crazy, " Mourinho said. "We are just trying to improve a little bit more. That's what we are going to try.

Reality is if we didn't pack in the latter stage of the season after city won the league we most likely would have finished on 85-90 points. Enough to win the league in a plethora of previous seasons.

We have a very good team/ squad and a very good manager (when he is unneccesarily bickering with his players) and don't need to make too many additions. Most likely need either a centre back or a left back and to ship out those who won't get much game time.

2.) 14 Jul 2018 10:23:11
I'm not one to panic about other deals being made typically, but we have several key areas of the squad that need strengthening, at the moment our opponents are strengthening more than we are - so I'm a little concerned that we are unprepared and maybe desperate deals will be made to paper over the cracks as usual. Deals that will bite us in 2 years time. Everyone has their own ideas on where we need to strengthen, but if we do not sign a RW, LB and RB of top quality we will not win the league or CL, we are not good enough elsewhere to carry those positions as it currently stands!

Also - the quotes from Jose above should finally stop all those comments which state "it's not my money so why should I care how much we spend", the answer is because we need a lot of TLC on this over-paid squad and not an end.

City also have one of the best LB's coming back, which lifts them a level from last year, if we still have Young starting out there then it's over before it begins and I'm not being dramatic - he is the ultimate passenger now. We literally can't afford to have so many 7/ 10 or 6/ 10 players in the starting 11 as we have had in recent years.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 11:52:35
"We literally can't afford to have so many 7/ 10 or 6/ 10 players in the starting 11 as we have had in recent years. "

Totally agree but in the same context, chucking money like maddogs surely ain't the answer?
I reckon there's plenty of work being done that we aren't privvy to and players will go and some additions at what the club considers to be the right price/ terms. I really believe Pogba could move on and a n other 3/ 4 -blind, darmian, one of the current centre backs and martial if the moneys right. Sincerely hope that we stick to the rumour bandied about that we don't start buying 30+ year olds as sticking plasters or we will be in the same position next year and so on.

4.) 14 Jul 2018 13:41:59
The problem is we have too many squad players on too high wages we can't shift. Ed2 has said we can only add players if we move some on. Largely because of ffp warnings on wages. But we're struggling to sell because of the wages. Blind looks like going. But we re-signed Fellaini and there's no interest in jones, Smalling, Shaw, rojo and Mata who all should be moved on.

5.) 14 Jul 2018 15:42:10
DSG, do you honestly think our team and squad have what it takes to win the league or even challenge City next year? Valencia and Young as first choice fullbacks, jones or smalling partnering Bailly, midfield that still needs improving and no width up front. If Lukaku gets injured, then we're gone.
I'm afraid if mourinho really does what he said, then we might as well give the title to City. If we don't invest massively, then 4th place will not be guaranteed.

6.) 14 Jul 2018 17:13:21
O well we might as well not bother this season. Maybe Woodward can fax the FA an tell them we won't be taking part. Never mind 2 teams have new managers who need to adapt to the league. Never mind spurs have hit a glass ceiling they can't break. Never mind Liverpool haven't sorted their weaknesses. Never mind Peps teams are knackered by season. 3.



12 Jul 2018 09:13:54
Question for the eds, given fellani is now staying now and new manager at Madrid and Chelsea, and the rumours around utd looking at some of their players, what are the realistic positions on the pitch Jose is concentrating on? We and the media assume it's a left back and maybe centre back, right winger, another midfielder etc. But surely we will have to sell four or five players if Jose is going to buy more players. I hope some of the younger players are promoted to the senior squad, as surely they will replace blind, darmian, smalling etc as squad players. We have some great quality up top but getting a quick quality supply into Lusaka is key to scoring lots of goals next season.


{Ed002's Note - I don't see why you think having new coaches at Chelsea and Madrid would impact Manchester United's transfer plans. I am not aware of any changes at all to what has previously been explained. You are right, if players are to arrive others will indeed leave.}

1.) 12 Jul 2018 12:30:04
I am guessing he means Willian and Bale Ed crazy as it sounds.



13 Jun 2018 22:40:16
I know it's not FIFA 2018, but l would try and get Verrati and sell Martial to PSG as part of the deal if he wants to go. I think Verrati is quality, great attitude and passion for the game. A leader given the chance. We can but dream!


1.) 13 Jun 2018 23:07:50
Or with Dybala Martial redcon? Not really fussed if he does leave, needs to go play in a team where he won't have to fight for his place.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 08:06:21
Players come players go. Martial is a player i would not be desperate to keep. If he wants to leave then he has every right to do so as long as we receive an acceptable offer.

I don't think we have revived an offer. I don't see a host of clubs looking to sign him. So we will just have to wait and see. There is talk of spurs and juve if we can leverage martial against one of the players we would like to sign from them then it would make sense.

Martial is a player with great potential sometimes a player can't fulfill his potential at a club for 1 reason or another.

Id love to see him go on and do well elsewhere and i have no doubt his replacement will do better for us than martial has thus far. That way everyone is a winner.

King is dead long live the new king.



30 May 2018 19:12:50
What about bring the offside line to the edge of the 18yard box instead of the half way line and no more of this interfer / not interfering with play rubbish, if your off your off.


1.) 31 May 2018 03:39:29
Thanks for your reply Eds :)

Final question, do you expect us to sign Milikovic savic? I saw him play and he plays in the same position as pogba so I wouldn't see any sense in that (unless he's replacing pogba)

{Ed004's Note - I think Milinkovic Savic will prove too costly this summer}

I would prefer tosee a 4-2-3-1 formation with carrick & fellani sitting in midfield protecting the back four. That leaves Mata Rooney, januzai and RVP up top
