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.

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.

My word Marco Asensio is a wonderful player, brilliant!

scholes_18_18

1.) 17 Aug 2017 00:21:06
Asensio really has burst onto the world stage in the past year. Very technical player, and what a shot he has. He looks like a world class player in the making.


2.) 17 Aug 2017 09:59:12
Fair play to RM, not a club I like very much at all but Asensio, Isco have been allowed to develop when RM could easily have spent a kings ransom to replace them with shiny new signings and have 2 players now that they can build a team around just for starters.


3.) 17 Aug 2017 12:14:11
I really like the look of Asensio, looks a real gem. Hopefully Real Madrid treat him well and appreciate him. They have a tendency to overlook their homegrown players.


 

 

31 Jul 2017 15:58:39
Ed001, would we be able to get your thoughts on Nemanja Matic?

scholes_18_18

{Ed001's Note - good player for the way Jose likes to play. He is an excellent coach driver in front of the defence ;-)

Seriously though, it is not just the protection he gives that is key, it is his use of the ball that makes him particularly important. He does the right thing most of the time when on the ball.}


1.) 31 Jul 2017 16:54:29
I agree, I think he's brilliant in that position and is underrated on the ball. good solid signing and a definite improvement.


2.) 31 Jul 2017 17:08:47
For me the main thing with signing Matic, other than the fact that predictive text changes his name to Magic, will be the freedom it gives to Pogba and Herrera to go forward and cause teams problems. Matic does what he does very well, but it will be the effect on the other two in midfield, that will mean the price paid will have been well worth it.

If we can get a RB and wide player in before the season starts, we'll definitely be in contention for the league this season. And we'll also give the CL a good go too.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 17:30:34
I think it is a great signing. Jose will use him in his best role allowing us to attack with more freedom.


4.) 31 Jul 2017 17:43:37
Was a bit sceptical at first, but this signing has definitely grown on me, if only because it'll hopefully free Pogba up. Hope he does well. If he does anywhere near as well as our last Serb called Nemanja, he'll be alright.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 18:27:18
I'm honestly chuffed with this signing imo we have significantly strengthened our own squad and weakened a direct opponent (only my opinion or course) I think we will see an improvement in pogba but it's Herrera where the most significant change will be seen. having the freedom to express himself I believe we will have a world class midfielder on our hands 😊.


6.) 31 Jul 2017 19:16:02
For me it's the fact he's PL proven and top team proven so is very likely to slot straight in and not need anytime to adapt! Also having players like him allows us to take more risk going forward!


7.) 01 Aug 2017 11:56:28
Magic signing.


 

 

15 Jul 2017 20:39:21
Pretty '🌶' here in Manchester.

31 May 2017 22:36:41
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.

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 : (.

I wouldn't exactly be 'overjoyed' if we got Mandzukic over Morata or Griezmann CSM, but i wouldn't mind, really good player.

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.}
