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.


 

 

28 Apr 2016 16:13:10
Reported interest in N'Golo Kante, apparently been recommended by Fergie. wouldn't be a bad combination in midfield alongside Renato Sanches.

scholes_18_18

1.) 28 Apr 2016 18:30:38
Sanches, Kante, Murillo, Mustafi, Rafa Silva, Zlatan, keep DDG and we will be looking good.


2.) 28 Apr 2016 19:43:24
WRD you don't want much then 😄.


3.) 28 Apr 2016 20:13:23
No just the odd tweak Dave ha ha.


4.) 28 Apr 2016 20:36:21
I think Fosu Mensah in centre of midfield may be a better combination with Sanches, if indeed we are interested or able to buy him.


5.) 28 Apr 2016 22:54:48
I think Jose may look to Fosu-Mensah in the same way as he did Varane.

As for Kante, top signing if we can make it happen. Mourinho type player too.

I'd love to see Kante and Stones in particular.


6.) 28 Apr 2016 23:07:25
I don't think we really need a lot of new players, just a manager who doesn't stick Young on as a striker or pick Fellaini over Herrera then wonder why we keep losing the ball in midfield.

A right winger is probably top priority IMO (well, after selling Fellaini), and a striker, box-to-box midfielder, right back and a central defender with more aerial prescence would all be nice, but I don't think any are really essential. One or two of those, plus a right winger and the squad is good.

8.) 29 Apr 2016 20:17:48
Fosu Mensah's passing is no where near good enough at this stage to play midfield IMO. He will be CB in My opinion eventually. He has talent and size but quite raw still offensively.


 

 

26 Apr 2016 15:44:50
Any interest from United in Casemiro of Madrid? Hugely underrated, incredible range of passing and defensively outstanding.

scholes_18_18

{Ed004's Note - None}


1.) 26 Apr 2016 23:20:18
He has an awful passing range. Very good defensively but he's extremely limited on the ball which slows down Real Madrid's build up play.


2.) 27 Apr 2016 10:50:54
Apparently it is renato sanches that we are looking at. In my opinion that would be a great signing.


3.) 27 Apr 2016 20:43:56
Renato is needed
Not a dm. schneiderlein is our 1st choice and tfm can play, as can blind and from what i read, mcnair is killing it there!

Would any of the Ed's know which player Jose is talking about when he says there will be a surprise? Or is it 100% confidential? Lol.

scholes_18_18

{Ed007's Note - It's a new improved contract for Rooney including a coaching role.}


1.) 31 May 2017 22:47:08
Ed, don't even joke about it.

{Ed007's Note - Jose's priming him to take over from him in 4/5 years when he moves upstairs as DOF after the Saudi royal family takeover in 3 years.}


2.) 31 May 2017 22:55:55
Ahhh, knew a sarcastic response was coming😂.

{Ed007's Note - Would you really want to spoil the surprise? I bet you used to rake through your folks room looking for your Christmas presents.}


3.) 31 May 2017 23:36:04
i think United will re-sign Javier Hernandez. I think there was more to the comment he made about Javier Hernandez around two months ago and Ed Woodward has had his list for around about the same time. Just my assumption.


4.) 31 May 2017 23:54:37
Isn't Javier Hernandez on his way to Marseille?

{Ed007's Note - Didn't I see something about him going to Lyon earlier?}


5.) 31 May 2017 23:59:41
Can we assume Welbeck will return too as he was also mentioned in the same comment?


6.) 01 Jun 2017 01:24:51
My mistake, Lyon not Marseille. Easily confused.


7.) 01 Jun 2017 07:33:56
Might just be on holiday.


8.) 01 Jun 2017 09:02:13
Reckon surprise will be Matic.


9.) 01 Jun 2017 09:32:03
It's neymar.

{Ed025's Note - nay la..


10.) 01 Jun 2017 12:49:46
zlatan coming back but playing with one leg only.


 

 

02 May 2017 13:07:41
Hope the news that Jose has banned social media in training, on the team bus and 48hrs before games is true. These players need a massive kick up the arse and a change of mentality is desperately needed.

scholes_18_18

1.) 02 May 2017 13:38:06
Couldn't agree more. Spolit brates ☺.


2.) 02 May 2017 14:38:53
Hope he bans google and facebook and changes his name to Kim Jong Jose.


3.) 02 May 2017 15:04:20
Well it does sound like he's declaring war DSG.


4.) 02 May 2017 15:46:25
Let's be honest, they are bottle fed overpaid pansies who frolic know up and down the pitch.
Duncan Edwards must be turning in his grave with shame.


5.) 02 May 2017 16:29:58
Would Fergie allow it?


6.) 02 May 2017 17:32:36
How will pogba manage.


7.) 02 May 2017 18:59:25
Pig a needs to finish the season strong so the ban for him especially is fine with me!


8.) 02 May 2017 19:43:16
* pogba lol.


 

 

26 Apr 2017 14:13:23
Looks like De Gea is on his way to Madrid then, would everyone be happy if Oblak from Atletico is the replacement?

scholes_18_18

{Ed004's Note - I don't want him to leave but Oblak would be the best possible replacement. He's arguably in the top 3 GKs in the game right now}


1.) 26 Apr 2017 14:40:14
Tbf romero hasn't let anyone down when he's played and presuming he sees us to the final and we win the europa league, i feel he's earnt the right to have the oppurtunity to be our full time number 1 if de gea leaves.


2.) 26 Apr 2017 15:08:34
Really hope Dave stays though! : (.


3.) 26 Apr 2017 15:39:22
No way can we trust Romero for me DSG - he looks a real liability with the ball at his feet and in any instance other than instinct shot stopping, where he does very well like many keepers.

Decent #2, but any more than that and he will cost us important points I fear over the course of a season.

I like Oblak, wouldn't mind Butland if he has recovered well - I'd love us to have a real leader of men back there.


4.) 26 Apr 2017 15:57:16
The problem with butland is he has not played for 18 months beast so it's too big a risk. I tend to agree on Romero he doesn't inspire confidence but has always done well when played tbf.
Oblak is a magnificent keeper there is little to choose between him and ddg imo.
He will be costly. Could we sign 2 players from AM? Surely they won't want to lose greizman and oblak to the same club.


5.) 26 Apr 2017 16:48:42
I actually like Romero. He's not done anything wrong considering he only plays now and again. Goalkeepers usually improve after a run of games so it can be hard to give 100% when you're constantly in and out of the side. His distribution is actually unbelievable and works well initiating quick counter attacks.


 

 

23 Apr 2017 18:23:20
If we finish 4th and win the Europa League and either City or Liverpool finish 5th will one of them qualify for the Champions League?

scholes_18_18

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}


1.) 23 Apr 2017 18:27:07
No, but if one of them finished 4th and we won it but finished outside the top 4 then they would drop out.


2.) 23 Apr 2017 18:38:29
We will have 5 teams in the comp next season.

{Ed002's Note - Only if MU win the EL and end up outside of the top four.}


3.) 23 Apr 2017 18:38:34
No they wouldn't fresh. It's top 4 and Europa league winners if outside top 4.


 

 

11 Jan 2017 18:04:06
Would love to hear Ed001 and Ed002's thoughts on how good of a footballer Michael Carrick is.

scholes_18_18

{Ed001's Note - Carrick is one of the most underrated players in his generation for me. He is one of those players that is difficult to appreciate unless you get to see him play a lot. His skill is in being in the right place, rather than hard running and last ditch tackles, he positions himself correctly to ensure that he doesn't need to chase people down and throw himself into a dangerous tackle in the box.

When he has the ball, he has excellent vision and the range of passing to pick out the runs he spots. Also has a good shot on him, though it is not often he gets that far forward these days to have a dig. He is an essential component of the way United play.}


1.) 12 Jan 2017 08:21:13
Amen to all of that ed. What I really liked is that when Keane left, everybody was banging on about replacing him and his style, but there were very few out there who did what he did. So Fergie evolved it and got Carrick in who became one of the most important players in the team. You only realise how vital he is when he is not playing.

{Ed001's Note - agreed, he is one of those players that it is difficult to see his influence on the game from MOTD or Youareatube clips, so he goes unnoticed. He has evolved himself, he was very much more physical as a youngster, with runs forward to hit shots ala Lampard fairly common.

I have to say, he was the biggest loss Newcastle had from shutting down their youth system under Keegan. They are still suffering the after effects of that decision.}


2.) 12 Jan 2017 08:42:44
Ed, do you think he is as underrated as Nicky Butt was in the earlier generation?

{Ed001's Note - more so. He is better than Butt ever was and yet people seem to rate Butt higher.}


3.) 12 Jan 2017 09:24:18
I didn't rate Butt that highly, certainly he wasn't in Carrick class. I used to say Butt had "square boots" because whilst he ran around and tackled his passing could go anywhere.

What is sad is that England misused and under played both Scholes and Carrick whilst preferring other media darlings.


4.) 12 Jan 2017 10:11:47
Very strange englands set up. But what was englands loss was Utds gain.

By not using Carrick or Scholes correctly meant that we have got longevity out of their careers.

Di Marzio has just said Ronnie wants the move back and has told Mendes to do whatever he can to bring him back. Still seems a bit far fetched, can't see it happening : (.

IF talks were ongoing with United and Griezmann i don't see how they couldn't have anticipated this scenario whereby Atleticos ban isn't lifted, something just doesn't seem right.

But we didn't finish in the top 4 last season Ed and we spent less than Manchester City, so no we never outspent every other team in Europe.

scholes_18_18

{Ed001's Note - my mistake, I did mean to say top 5. You did in the summer, Gabriel Jesus did not arrive until January, so I was not counting him. So you did outspend every team in Europe in the summer. If that is not enough to move a top 5 team up and make them more attacking, then I have no idea what is? £150m is more than Swansea's entire squad, including reserves cost, and that is just what you spent in the summer. There is no excuse apart from your manager being a pragmatist that wants to bore the opposition into the ground.}
