Hello ed002. what do you think the situation now is with Depay and Damian? Considering Jose and back office team has settled in. And what do you think why they never made it as expected.


{Ed002's Note - Players wioll move on if suitable offers are made - but you might be suprised by some of the valuations being given by the club.}

1.) 16 Oct 2016 13:26:21
I'll be disappointed if depay goes they were told he wasn't ready they gave him less than half chance and have spent the rest of the time destroying his confidence by bringing him off before he's had a chance when there were players still on the park doing less. Really poor management of a young player with real potential. Did help spending record funds for a youngster in the same position.

2.) 16 Oct 2016 13:27:28
Have any clubs expressed interest in depay, ed?

{Ed002's Note - A couple.}

3.) 16 Oct 2016 17:11:40
Are they overvalued or undervalued valuations?

{Ed002's Note - High.}

4.) 16 Oct 2016 21:03:36
Cheers ED002 I've always thought we sold players on the cheap, apart from Ronaldo. Do you think the club is being over ambitious with their valuations or is part of a plan to get a better fee once a price is negotiated.

{Ed002's Note - They are simply asking for too much right now.}

5.) 16 Oct 2016 21:38:41
Cheers ED.



18 Aug 2016 13:52:35
A question to Ed. Jose said he has 25 man squad. with loan departure of Janujaz does it mean we will expolre for a Winger? I mean a player with potential.


{Ed004's Note - I doubt it. Only players we will be looking at will probably be a RB and CB.}

1.) 21 Aug 2016 22:39:55
We've got Depay, Lingard, Miki, Martial, Mata and Rashford who can all play wide. We're probably covered in that area!



24 Jun 2016 17:30:24
Hello ed. Do u think move of morata means Benzema might move to Manchester united?


{Ed004's Note - Hopefully not}

1.) 24 Jun 2016 17:41:40
No, but RM need to sell a non-EU player and they won't sell Bale. Good chance of James I think.

2.) 25 Jun 2016 00:08:23

Since when was Wales not in the EU? It will be over 2 years before that is the case.

3.) 25 Jun 2016 06:39:21
It's only been a day fresh. Haha! We are still in the EU.



02 Jun 2016 19:35:07
Manolas nears completion.


1.) 02 Jun 2016 21:37:50
Where's that.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 07:40:40
That's Jose's holiday home sorted then.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 09:12:45
Finally got Jose on board which is great news. with the euro 's upon us, Do you think we struggle to sign any decent players. when van Gaal was offered the job it was also the euros and we were a few weeks behind all other clubs.
Fingers crossed.
And please Jose finish above 4th.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 10:05:54

It was a World Cup and LVG was managing a team there, so it is a totally different situation.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 12:11:42
Your right it was the world cup. apologies.



12 May 2016 06:16:10
Hello Ed.
Any right hand side midfielders being looked at? Or we will see mata again wasted there.


{Ed001's Note - there are hopes for Depay or Martial to swap between the two wings in the future. Some of the staff are working on Januzaj to try and get him to sort his head out, as a lot feel he can still be a future star for the club.

On future potential, and I am not sure if this is for this summer or a future move, the club have taken a few looks at Benfica's young winger Guedes. I have never seen him play, so I can't tell you if he is any good, but he has been checked on a few times over the last couple of seasons.}

1.) 12 May 2016 08:00:49
Can understand the future winger role. but how about now? January strong links of Mane/ Silva still exists? Or say Felipe Anderson. as most fans see no real pace down right side and even oppotion know that mata won't beat his defender and cut inside from preventing himself. and it makes defending easy for them.
I will try for mahrez and if not attainable will go for mane.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I assumed you wanted something that hasn't been mentioned before. There is still interest in Mane and Silva, not sure about Felipe Anderson. Mahrez, I believe, has indicated he is not interested in a move in the summer to anyone, and is looking to see how the season starts with Leicester and the Champions League before he considers his options again in January. Mane is still keen on a move to United, so you would think he was the most likely signing, but it has been discussed at length in the past, so I didn't think it was worth going over it again. The only thing that has stopped him joining is Southampton's unwillingness to sell.}

2.) 12 May 2016 08:25:57
Cheers Ed. I follow site closely and your comments specially so I know what had discussed before. Just curious for if time has changed targets or scouting system has found someone like a hidden gem. As per your contacts, u r best one to ask.

{Ed001's Note - Guedes is the one that was new to me, in terms of link with United.}

3.) 12 May 2016 09:20:20
Ed001 you mentioned depay and martial on the wings. Do the club see that as martials position for the coming years or will he eventually become a striker?

{Ed001's Note - short term wide, but long term he is intended to be a striker. At least that is the plan.}

4.) 12 May 2016 10:31:47
I really like the look of Rafa Silva. Would love it if we sign him and I have a feeling we will. He has great drubbling skill, pace and balance in to open up tight defenses. His end product looks good as well.

Felipe Anderson has all the talent in the world but he seems more Nani to me than Ronaldo. He blows hot and cold. Again a very big fee being asked for him and we would have signed him in January if LVG had managed the team properly. I still think this deal will go ahead in the summer regardless of who the manager is.

Mane has been very good this season but for his talent, the fee being asked is ridiculous. I would stay away.

I haven't been impressed by Depay at all and I don't think he has the pace and balance in tight spaces to succeed and kick on. I would rather see him sold and bring in two wingers in the summer.

5.) 12 May 2016 11:02:17
I wouldn't say mata would be wasted if he played as a right winger because when he plays as a number 10 he is just as ineffective there as well, if we had a decent winger with pace playing this season instead of mata we would of made the top 4 easily the return from the 40 mill spent on mata is a joke, lvg has been saying we need more creativity and speedy players so hopfully that means mata will be on his way! i'm hoping that someone like dembele, mane, anderson will be signed.

6.) 12 May 2016 13:39:39
Thanks for the info Ed. Can I just ask you, you say about Guedes, could that of been the reason we decided to scout Benfica, even though we decided against going for Sanches? A lot has been written how we continued to do so, although according to Ed2, we never upped our offer from January.

{Ed001's Note - he was spotted while looking at Sanches, and yes, the continued scouting of Benfica was in large part down to him, though you were still interested in moving for Sanches in the summer. Bayern just stepped in and completed the deal ahead of you.}

7.) 12 May 2016 14:41:56
Thanks Ed.

Anthony Martial. How many of you think he is getting enough chances and encouragement from Jose.? I mean currently for playing on left we have no one batter than him. and still lingaard getting nod ahead of him. he is majorly suffering from Shaw injury where no wing back support is coming. same as depay who was excellent till horrific injury to Shaw. it feels like some wingers need full back support and since Evra we struggling there.


1.) 13 Aug 2017 15:04:53
Way down joses pecking order i think rodio. Has he earned the right to a place? doesn't look like the manager thinks so.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 15:05:24
Jose sees them every day in training, he clearly sees something that makes him pick Lingard and not Martial, last year Martial was very poor. As for Depay, he was dreadful most of the time, thing to do with any other player, just him.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 15:25:45
The reason they both played better with Shaw (when he was playing well) is because they both like to cut inside. With shaw over-lapping it takes the fb away leaving that space. When darmian or blind play this does not happen and so makes it easier to defend against martial.

4.) 13 Aug 2017 16:57:58
Depay was excellent until Shaw got injured? LOL Get a grip mate! SHOCKING!



12 Aug 2017 14:52:03
Fosu-Menshah. Straight away into starting line up for CPFc. I hope he gets and retains his place in every game and return as our own version of Fabinho.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 15:08:16
Radio what position is he playing.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 15:33:01
Right side of a back three according to sky. 0-2 down not the best start.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 15:33:54
It looks like he is at CB in a back three. Huddersfield 2-0 up hardly a great start. But then Pereira has learned and grown a lot from his loan at Granada and they got relegated.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 15:43:35
At least we didn't loan him to Chelsea. Imagine his lack of confidence that would cause.



10 Aug 2017 16:36:25
TFM loan deal officially confirmed today. So means Aurier news might have some legs.


1.) 10 Aug 2017 16:58:41
Hope he gets a lot of game time. Loans aren't always the best thing for young players and I would have liked to see him be Valencia's understudy this season.

De Boer seems to be trying to make Palace more of a footballing side than they have been in the past so hopefully he gains good experience of PL football at a decent level and not a relegation battle where they are being beaten every week.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 17:34:16
Hope Aurier signs and then we go in for rose that would be a completely Jose back 4 then use Darmian to fk a deal for Perisic. Would have addressed all of our weak areas from last season, a bit greedy but still fancy a good back up striker still look short of goal up top.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 18:07:03
Ibra will resign then if we get the 2 full backs providing width we have an ideal squas to play 442.
Miki and mata for 10. Carrick matic for 6 and pogs herrera fellaini and perira for 7 and 8.
With 2 from ibra lukaku rash and martial for the 2 front spots. 2players for each position.



09 Aug 2017 16:22:44
One thing to say on last night's performance. This team is crying for a genuine left back.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 16:44:17
And an actual winger who can cross a ball.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 17:53:30
And some movement off the ball.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 18:22:10
And a passer like modric or Kroos who can dictate play. Apart from that, we're a top team.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 18:53:01
Thought we had Shaw?

{Ed004's Note - You're doing this wrong angelred! And the ability to press further up the pitch}

5.) 09 Aug 2017 20:48:26
never understood how a pro is capable of doing a foul throw.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 23:24:05
What did the Romans do for us?



06 Aug 2017 19:09:16
If any of the Ed's know. Do you think United will show interest at any point in Mahrez considering the fact that their search for wide player for left side isn't going anywhere.? I know he has played on right for lcfc. But being naturally left footed might help us? He is available and 40-45m can get us a good player.
Or perhaps a one season wonder fear is there?


{Ed025's Note - i dont think hes a jose type player rodio, undoubted talent but hardly a team player mate..

1.) 07 Aug 2017 00:41:01
No way. Lots of ability lack of heart.

This does mean 1 CM is certain with Mctominy to get more minutes if second CM is not signed. Or TFM in holding role.?

Ken. Here we all make mistake mostly. MARTIAL was bought as striker. As no batter winger was available he was deployed there. Now when he can't perform there people brand him as flop. But how many games at a strech he got as Rashford as striker. Without being deployed here and there. He is a striker. Or bought as a striker at least.

Bang on friend. Saying this since weeks. LB is also needed with a winger too.

GDS. U always in hurry to comment. Rnt u. I said. Back up wingers and out and out winger is a worry. Have I said CM is a worry. Or u see Mctominy playing wing back or winger. Or Parreira.? One can't turn face to weakness in name of optimism. And whoever u have quoted. Doesn't mater as I don't know at all who that is.
And without reading last line. Writing this much. Lolsss. Nice.

All second half team were poor. Makhi and Martial failing to provide anything for big rom . And Pogba and Fellaini were playing Rugby. Blind made look like snail with quick wingers. DDG and Mctominy are only players who can stay out of criticism.
