Is there anything in the 'reports' that we could sign Özil on a free at the end of season Ed002? can't seem to find anything about it with the search function? Thanks.

scholes_18_18

{Ed002's Note - Efforts are being made right now to see what interest there will be in a January sale and at this time I am only aware of one side indicating they wish to discuss the possibility - and it is not MU.}


1.) 03 Oct 2017 09:07:21
Nice one Ed, hope we show some interest, class player.

{Ed002's Note - He is not a typical Mourinho player - but if MU were to make an offer in January it is possible a deal could be done.}


2.) 03 Oct 2017 12:05:25
Top player on his day, but I hope we stay clear to be honest, better players out there that suit us more than Ozil.


3.) 03 Oct 2017 12:06:55
He's eligible for UCL football so I can see this happening. He would play midfield where we are short. Three man midfield at times with Pogba and Matic. Competition for Herrera.

Doubt we'd pay £50m for him if he wasn't going for cheap, but as a bargain we will go for him. Maybe even Sanchez too with City being his most likely destination.

{Ed002's Note - He isn't eligible for CL.}


4.) 03 Oct 2017 12:15:41
Just want to see him at the level he was at during his time in Madrid, maybe Jose can get the best out of him again🤞🏻.


5.) 03 Oct 2017 12:38:49
I think with it coming down to signing on fees and wages. We as a club can match anyone so would be very surprised if we didn't contact either player via their representatives and let them know our interest. What we would be willing to offer them. Whether they were interested is another matter.


6.) 03 Oct 2017 13:26:46
He could come in to play for PL rotating with the team and we can have others for CL games as well. Remember if we are competing in all front we need a expansive team. One which we have backups etc in case of injuries and/ or fatigue. He could potentially lead he charge for the FA and League Cup games.
I may be wrong but happy to hear other opinions.


7.) 03 Oct 2017 14:02:25
Yeah because a top class player is going to sign to play league cup football.


8.) 03 Oct 2017 12:34:34
Ed002, Oh okay, I thought with Arsenal being in the Europa. Have rules been changed in recent times or has this always been the rule?

{Ed002's Note - they changed.}


9.) 03 Oct 2017 18:52:33
Has he played for Arsenal in europe this season. I didn't think so which means he would be able to play for us if we did sign him.


10.) 03 Oct 2017 21:18:28
Correct oxford. But if he played in europa league he wouldn't be available. If arsenal intend selling him in jan they won't cup tie him i'd imagine as it decreases his value and would reduce the amount of possible suitors.


 

 

14 Jul 2017 15:14:35
First bid of £65m for Alexis Sanchez! Hope he signs for us.

scholes_18_18

1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:45:11
For him to sign for we need to put a bid in for him and I can only assume this "65m" bid is a twitter ITK account so it's more than likely bull💩.

I do hope it's true but I highly doubt this one.


2.) 14 Jul 2017 16:38:22
He would be the best signing we would make this summer but it's not happening. I hope he doesn't go to City though because if he does they would potentially have the best group of attacking players in Europe with him, Aguero, Jesus, Sane, De Bruyne and both Silva's.


3.) 14 Jul 2017 17:00:19
Rjmanutd, how could you forget the mighty Sterling! 😂.


4.) 14 Jul 2017 19:41:33
I know. I didn't want to mention Sterling because it pains me that we lack a player with so much end product and consistency. If only we had a player with that amount of pace who could get fans out of their seats only to sit down in frustration 3 seconds later when they realise he's gone 10 yards out of play and been tackled by the ball boy, we'd be nailed on for the league.


 

 

27 Mar 2017 13:55:14
Afternoon Ed, would you be kind enough to let us know when the Sharkopod for our summer transfers will be out?

scholes_18_18

{Ed002's Note - It will likely be a couple of weeks whilst I travel.}


1.) 27 Mar 2017 16:54:11
Thanks Ed👍🏻.


2.) 28 Mar 2017 11:52:57
Hi Ed002, just out of curiosity what do you do for a living? you travel a hell of a lot and i'm impressed you manage to find the time to answer most questions put to you.
i understand if you find it too personnal ;)

{Ed002's Note - I am a gentleman adventurer (a bit like Adam Adamant) and part time rodeo clown.}


3.) 28 Mar 2017 12:37:31
haha awesome ed. made me chuckle that did.


 

 

19 Jun 2016 03:38:57
Any truth in Mourinho wanting Kroos at United Ed?

scholes_18_18

{Ed004's Note - There is a chance Kroos will leave Madrid but I doubt he will be moving here}


1.) 19 Jun 2016 12:43:54
hopefully he doesn't move to the blue side of manchester.


2.) 19 Jun 2016 13:44:29
City pulled out of the Kroos deal last week, so unless they've changed their minds again not sure why the rumours have resurfaced again. I'd suggest he'd go back to Germany or Italy if he leaves Real. Chelski could sniff around too as well as us.


 

 

10 Jun 2016 04:43:43
Sorry to bother you Ed but is there a chance you could you give us a list of potential ins and outs at United?

scholes_18_18

{Ed004's Note - Now this is all just based on speculation and what papers say. I've no sources whatsoever but ins; Bonucci, Manolas, Varane, Marquinhos, Fabinho, Gomes, Pjanic, Pogba, Sane, Mikhitaryian, Embolo, Ibrahimovic and Morata have all been linked. Those at risk; Darmian, Jones, Rojo, Blind, Schweinsteiger, Mata, Fellaini, Young and some of the youngsters}


1.) 10 Jun 2016 12:56:31
Romero?

{Ed004's Note - Think he's OK as a back up}


2.) 10 Jun 2016 13:28:18
Bonucci would be an absolute dream at centre back. Hope we make a move for him.

I know its two weeks away yet, but what do you guys think is the best way to beat the scouser's? Defensive minded etc or completely match up to them man to man and attack?

scholes_18_18

1.) 01 Oct 2017 02:41:26
Pogba being out could actually be a blessing.

Herrera, Miki Mata midfield is slightly more defensive but plenty still going forward.

I would stick with Mata plus the form player of Rashford and Martial assuming everyone is fit.

I like the look of Young at left back, but he might get caught out defensively.

Definitely need to take them on, but Jose will not play open and expansive, no way.


2.) 01 Oct 2017 03:01:27
Prob best to give them a 2 goal head start and let them mess it up from there.


3.) 01 Oct 2017 03:06:47
Jose will know best. i'd rather go at them try to exoose their weakness but if jose parks the bus and we win 1 nil then i'd be delighted.


4.) 01 Oct 2017 05:13:40
We need to keep in mind that liverpool are at their best when teams go out and have a go at them. Best way to beat them is tactically. I believe Jose will setup the Jose way.


5.) 01 Oct 2017 07:01:28
We need to be sensible but I think their defence is very suspect so we should get after them. Our attack is looking good and we should be confident in their ability to unsettle their defence.


6.) 01 Oct 2017 12:50:07
We have the speed to do them on the counter. If we can beat their press our attack can expose their defense which always sits high up the pitch. Personally I have no doubt well will beat them.

{Ed025's Note - i have massive doubts TAS..


7.) 01 Oct 2017 13:09:48
I think we will play it tight as you don't go away to anfield and go gungho. They are very suspect defensively if you play it the right way. Mane and coutinho are the the players we need to keep in check. the rest of that team will not pose too many problems for us.


8.) 02 Oct 2017 21:06:48
How is this even a question? Play Mourinho football, prob a 5 man backline so the fb can lay on Mane and Salah, with Herrera and Matic as a shield for the 5 man defence. Play long balls on Lukaku, win a couple set pieces (50/ 50 scoring chanse against liverpool) . Easy pickings.


 

 

16 Sep 2017 12:53:33
Question, its something that's confused me for some time, i have a few mates who are very good with a ball at their feet, they are asian and say this is why they'll never get the opportunity to play for any clubs in this country, be it the PL or League 2 and it got me thinking, why have we never seen a young asian lad play for any club in the PL, Championship etc., surely there's some lads who can make it?

scholes_18_18

1.) 16 Sep 2017 14:12:59
Was park not Asian?


2.) 16 Sep 2017 14:25:13
Kagawa🤣.


3.) 16 Sep 2017 14:50:52
I suspect that by Asian he means from India, Pakistani, Bangladeshi etc and not Korean, Chinese, Japanese Asian.

There was one lad who made it to the first team squad. I think his name was harpal Singh.

I vaguely remember reading an article many years ago that stated that culturally there is more of a focus on education and other sports particularly cricket. Albeit that the article may have been slightly stereotypical.


4.) 16 Sep 2017 14:56:20
I think Michael Chopra was the only home-grown Asian lad, that's ever really figured in the EPL.


5.) 16 Sep 2017 14:56:50
I think he means south Asian over east Asian. Although British clubs have never tapped either pool of talent successfully.


6.) 16 Sep 2017 14:31:05
I mean players of Pakistani, Inidan, Bangladeshi origin.


7.) 16 Sep 2017 16:05:41
Scholes they perfer IT and cricket 😂.


 

 

12 Sep 2017 00:46:10
Before anyone slates me for it, its Just an opinion i have, is it me or does anyone else feel as if we should'nt have gone in for Lukaku? (Not saying it because he missed a good chance towards the end versus stoke) . he's a good player, just isn't Utd quality for me, feel as if we should have gone in for Thomas Muller and i reckon we'd have got him with a £90m bid.

doesn't seem first choice under Ancelotti and hasn't started much games since the beginning of last season. Having him this season and getting Griezmann next would massively push us towards winning the CL, even with Griezmann coming in next season i just cant see us winning it anytime soon with Lukaku upfront, would be enough to win the league though. Feels like an absolute age since we challenged for the CL on a regular basis.

scholes_18_18

1.) 12 Sep 2017 04:09:14
Scholes I humbly disagree. Muller with Griezmann vs Lukaku with Griezmann to me is not much difference as long as Griezmann comes to us. However I feel Lukaku is PL proven and fit in right away whereas Muller may need acclimatization.
Lukaku still can make improvements with proper motivation but Muller is probably plateauing off and maybe downhill. For me why would Ancelotti not choose him if he still has passion and playing at the highest level.
I feel we still need a couple or few additions to make us invincible. We still have to strengthen our defence. Our midfield is pretty ok. We have promising front but we still have to strengthen our wings with good solid crossers.
After that we should be very strong. Hence I agree also with Jose that we need another window to be back to Fergue days.


2.) 12 Sep 2017 08:21:38
I think we really needed a player like lukaku he is a great fit imo.


3.) 12 Sep 2017 09:11:28
I think he's a lazy player. I also think he's a bit soft. He'll get a way with it as long as he's banging in the goals but it will be interesting to see the reaction from both him and the supporters when he hit's a dry period.

I also think his close control is a bit suspect and he's not a very clean striker of the ball.

That said, I do like the way he runs in behind and gives us options on the counter attack. If he was banging in 30 goals for Everton then there is no reason he can't do that for us and it would be difficult to be disappointed with that.

No doubt he will be great while everything is rosy. I'm doubtful how he will fare if the going gets tough at the top level.


4.) 12 Sep 2017 09:39:02
Where as 666red humbly disagrees i on the other hand strongly disagree. Why go in for a 28 yr old sort of striker unproven in the EPL over a 24 yr old quite proven? Not to talk of pace and strength as well.
But like you said scholes, it is your opinion.


5.) 12 Sep 2017 09:52:01
Already bashing a player who's scored 4 in 4 this season? His movement has notibly given players like Miki and Pogba more space and options, hence the big wins. Unreal.


6.) 12 Sep 2017 09:53:25
I think Lukaku was a great buy. When you look at how he's settled in with the current squad, the friendship with Pogba and Martial and the partnership with Rashford. He's hit the ground running and scored goals. I'm not saying Muller wouldn't have settled but he certainly would've needed time to adjust to a new league and teammates after spending his entire career at Bayern. Plus he's not always played as a number 9, he's not an out and out striker whereas Lukaku is.


7.) 12 Sep 2017 11:42:32
Thomas Muller had the opportunity to join Man United a couple of years ago but everything was rosy back then at Bayern. He was scoring regular and was loved by the manager and by the fans. Suddenly he's fell down the pecking order and the manager Ancelotti doesn't rate him as a first 11 starter and Muller suddenly states yesterday that he's open to move to the premiership. How fickle are footballers.
not to mention that I would take Lukaku over Muller any day of the week. I think he will be a massive success at United and easily score between 20-30 goals this season.


8.) 12 Sep 2017 11:49:47
Only Aguero has scored more PL goals in the last 4 years than Lukaku. What did we severely lack last season? Someone to put the chances away. Plus a number 9 with movement and pace. Premier league proven. It was a no brainer. Great signing imo. Not saying he's perfect but he's perfect for us.


9.) 12 Sep 2017 12:47:00
Stand i'm not sure anyone is bashing him that's a bit of an over reaction. Motatta would have been my 1st chiice simply because i think he is a better all round footballer that said i'm delighted with lukaku. He is making a really good contributiin bith with goaks and with his movement and his overall play will improve. With ibra resigned he has effectively replaced Rooney in the squad and that's a masdive upgrade.
He will score goals and that's his main job.
With ibra to come in we have 2 proven goal scorers and in rash and martial we have 2 players with great potential.


10.) 12 Sep 2017 12:47:44
Who's to say Griezmann will sign next year? United's interest might go somewhere else.


11.) 12 Sep 2017 13:08:26
"Not united quality"
"Lazy and soft"
"Doesn't strike it cleanly"

Sounds like bashing to me ken. He's only played 4 games.


12.) 12 Sep 2017 13:31:38
Stand, im certainly not 'bashing' Lukaku, as long as he's playing for us i'll 100% back him. Maybe its just a personal preference of wanting to have Muller instead, been dreaming of him coming to us for years.


13.) 12 Sep 2017 13:32:51
Not to me stand looks like an opinion. I could swear you had a pop at jred yesterday for him jumping on peoples opinions. Seems like double standards. There is lots to lile about lukakus game but there is lots of room for improvement too. He appears to Jane a good attitude to improving so i'm sure he will iron out the weaknesses in his game. i'm sure you can see there are plenty of areas for improvement.


14.) 12 Sep 2017 16:32:52
Strange way to 100% back someone.

I'm not bashing Lukaku, but.


Classic.


15.) 12 Sep 2017 17:27:57
Ken. Issue yesterday was Jred saying "posters are bored of Valencia and want a new shiny signing" or along them lines as if speaking for the posters. Pointing out that Valencia can't cross a ball doesn't mean I'm bored of him at all. Lukaku has been at the club a month and people are questioning if he was the right signing. That's my point.


16.) 12 Sep 2017 17:32:45
If i was 'bashing' him DB, i'd be criticising aspects of his game, saying he's a poor player, never should have signed him etc., wouldn't call it 'bashing' just because i prefer another player.


17.) 12 Sep 2017 18:05:17
I hear you stand i just thought scholes 18 was giving his opinion.


18.) 12 Sep 2017 19:40:39
I must be reading something else then, because what I read sounded like you said we shouldn't of signed him!

I hate all this he said she said cr@p, usually don't get involved in it. Peace bro, I'm just happy were winning!


19.) 13 Sep 2017 10:18:30
After last nights game I need to take back some of what I just said about Lukaku.

I was at the match so I was able to watch him off the ball and to be fair he put in a lot of effort. He was making lots of runs to receive the ball and was also closing down defenders all match.

He seems to really enjoy playing for Utd and it's great to see him prove me wrong.

All the talk saying we need a left winger in the team who can whip the ball into the box, just imagine if we had a young Giggsy in this current team, drooling 🤤.

scholes_18_18

1.) 29 Aug 2017 19:12:06
I love Giggs but crossing was not a string point for him!


2.) 29 Aug 2017 19:19:36
Now, a young Beckham. Or a young Coppell.


3.) 29 Aug 2017 21:50:25
Im only a young fellow AJH so i'd only seen him play until his latter years unfortunately.

I would happily take Ozil, especially on a free Stockport. He gets so much undeserved criticism for when Arsenal play bad, again this season he's created so much for them but they waste everything he creates, making him look like he's had a poor game. If Jose can get him to the level he was at during their time in Madrid then we will be in for a treat as he's that good.
