A question for one of the Eds and posters.

Do you have any updates or news with Jesse Lingard. Is it true that he recently signed with Raiola as his agent?

shane88

{Ed002's Note - Sort of. Jesse Lingard (/RM/AM) knows that Manchester United see him as potentially being surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and that the current coach is not keen on him - so. not unreasonably. there is an ad hoc agreement with Mino that allows him to look for other options for the player. Right now I am aware there have been approaches to several sides and that a couple might be open to making a formal approach, but there remains a concern that as an English player there is a high risk if he were to move to mainland Europe - so the interest could easily wane. Interest in England I am told is thin on the ground although at least two sides have been approached. I suspect the summer and decisions yet to be agreed at the club will define whether he stays or goes.}

Thanks as always for the wonderfully detailed inside info Ed002: very much appreciated.

Might I be cheeky and read between the lines regarding your comment about decisions yet to made and the impact on whether Lingard stays: might this allude to United changing managers in the summer please?

If so - and I appreciate this is very speculative - might you have any inside info about United’s thoughts about Solkjaer, changing him in the Summer and who might they have spoken to please?

Thanks again for any info you might impart.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about Solkjaer before - nothing has changed.}


2.) 05 Feb 2020 09:52:34
No worries, thanks as always for your brilliant input to the site.

In reply to ed002. As supporters we are not bright enough to realise Ed Woodward is not buying and selling players, neither is ogs. With no dof. Who is actually making the decisions to buy/ sell negotiate for Man Utd?

{Ed002's Note - Right - but why should yopu now sart attacking others you know nothing of?}

ED is there a plan for what's going to happen with Chris Smalling?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have no plans but Roma want him still - they would have had him in January but for the amateurs.}

Thanks for the information Ed002. Have a good week.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Thoughts on Mertens to United this summer. Would you take him?

shane88

1.) 10 May 2018 08:28:58
Not too sure how true it is, but I believe he has a relatively low release clause of around £20-25 million.

Without getting into release clauses etc. If he were available for a fee of this amount he may be worth a punt.


2.) 10 May 2018 15:23:49
Agree necks for that price why not. But he is 29 hitting 30 so wouldn’t be he cleverest move. Especially if we are moving for Willian. Would much prefer to try keep martial and play rashford centrally more by rotating him with Lukaku. Otherwise I would love to see us go for Justin kluivert looks very talented.


3.) 10 May 2018 15:57:41
Out of rashford and martial I'd rather martial play centrally.


4.) 10 May 2018 17:39:01
He is a good player but he is too old. We need to build like City and like Utd of old younger players please.


5.) 10 May 2018 23:41:10
Good shout Park, Kluivert does look a great talent.


6.) 10 May 2018 23:48:56
Kluivert off to roma reports in holland are saying.


7.) 11 May 2018 17:12:08
Players of youth under Mourinho. Isn't going to happen. Mourinho wants players ready to go or the finish article not the next big thing.

Hi Eds. Just wondering do you expect Manchester United to attempt and get either or both Alexis Sanchez and Ozil in either the January transfer window or this summer?

shane88

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer sensibly about when transfers will happen but MU have not shown any interest in Alexis Sanchez. Oezil might be a possibility at some point.}


1.) 04 Dec 2017 16:21:38
Wish we had purchased Sanchez in the summer
Yeah would had possibly been £50m as in last year of contract, however we’d be so much stronger this year going forward.
If had the choice this coming summer when both are free, I’d still only take Sanchez. Ozil half of the time you forget he’s on the pitch
Should Zlatan not extend another year, use some of his wages to lure Sanchez.


2.) 04 Dec 2017 18:35:39
Thank Ed002 as always.

Don't post on here as regularly but just wanted to take the time out to thanks the Eds (inparticular 001 and 002) and you guys on here for all their information, insight and knowledge. I don't generally post on here but I try my utmost to read every comment regardless if I agree or not

I don't know about you guys but my knowledge has improved ten-fold from the Eds on how the game actually works.

Wish more fans had their eyes opened to how it really works. I remember when I posted on here when I first joined, some of my posts were let's say how a "arm-chair" fan would judge and deal with the situation

Regardless on what our opinions are at the moment, we all know the issues and problems the club got. But we need to realise that all this should come second to supporting the club. Don't get me wrong the club isn't all innocent. But knee-jerk reactions, protests etc. isn't the answer. We are going to have to use a skill that United fans haven't had to use in a long time (patience) and it could be a long time before we "win" again.

Anyway keep up the good work on here everyone. Their a great core of a community here. Wishing everyone all the best the season ahead.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Shane.}

Question for the Eds and fellow fans

What are your thoughts on the current crop of youth players coming through?

I personally feel like this is the best group since the class of 92.

I feel like Gomes, Chong and Greenwood will be pushing for 1st team football next season

The likes of Garner, Laird, Levitt, Williams will be future players to keep a eye on.

Greenwood is personally the best prospect since Ravel Morrison. I expect him to play on the wings at first then gradually move to the centre forward position.

shane88

{Ed004's Note - I havent gotten to watch enough of them lately but Ive high hopes for Greenwood, Garner and the young rb for u18 I think his name is Laird. I fully expect Greenwood to play a part next season. I expect Sanchez and Mata to leave with Greenwood promoted and another attacker signed. Chong isnt quick enough to be an elite winger and Gomes is touch and go due to his physicality to}


1.) 10 Apr 2019 23:03:32
Good post, and hopefully Tuanzebe comes back as well. I think Chong could make it, such a nice touch and very silky. Hope Gomes gets some more opportunities next season. He does have the talent, just need a position that he can slot into.


2.) 11 Apr 2019 09:24:17
Honestly, I think they all have a good chance of making it professionally but Greenwood has the pace and finishing to make a go of it at United. You need a bit of luck, the opportunity and to take your chance. Chong would benefit from a loan spell in my mind. Gomes too. Not honestly sure on Gomes best position. Seen him okay AL, CDM and CAM at times. Technically gifted but he needs exposure to league matches now in Prem or elsewhere.

Hi all

I've have decided to stop posting on here (Manchester United Page) regarding the team for the time being. Unfortunately I can no longer back the manager. And I don't want to become the "negative guy" that's more interested in getting Mourinho sacked than the performance of team.

I will forever love this club and go watch them when times allows but I won't back the people running the club. Just going to adopt more of sideline approach this coming season and watch it all unfold.

shane88

1.) 25 Jul 2018 00:39:49
What exactly has José done recently to suddenly stop you backing him? This negativity around Jose during pre season is very odd, not looking forward to the overreactions if we don’t start the season with 10 wins on the bounce scoring 4 in each.


2.) 25 Jul 2018 01:19:55
Sorry to hear that Shane but sometimes in life you got to take the good and the bad.
I will always support and get behind the team even though I ain't happy with some of the players and the manager.
Manchester United is more than the players and manager.
It's a part of us for life. For me anyway.


3.) 25 Jul 2018 09:18:18
It's all Jose fault gds2 did u not know he us the reason for global warming.


4.) 25 Jul 2018 21:35:22
Bet you don't shane.
Cheer up mate.

Thought and Prayers for The Boss (Sir Alex) . A legend, icon and massive influence to every United fan in existence.

All the words, actions, passion from the fans etc. in the world doesn't even come close to stating in everything he did for this club. He is the greatest of all time, the man that took Manchester United from a underachieving team, revolutionised them into becoming one of the biggest clubs in the world today. Without Ferguson, Manchester United would be still a afterthought today, infact I don't think you could imagine a Manchester United without Sir Alex.

Let hope he has one big Fergie time left within him and *fingers crossed* he pulls out with a late winner.

Thoughts and Prayers to Sir Alex, Family, Friends and The Club.

Now is not the time to be all doom and gloom. Yes we have having a tough time at the moment. The manager is being criticise at every opportunity by some fans and media while most players not named David De Gea are getting thrown under the bus.

We get behind our team even more when the going get tough and back the players and manager through this tough spell. The time to address the team ideology, major transfers and management is in the summer. We just have to hope and believe that we can overcome this period and pick up a trophy or two.

Be respectful about it, nothing wrong with having different of opinions. Problem is that a % of them act no better than a 10 old year kid when they don't get their own way. No one is suppose to be bigger than the club. Well sometimes I get the feeling the fans are trying to be.

This is what happens when the fans think they run the club and actually stop becoming supporters and become critics. I think the fan channels are becoming pretty embarrassing these days too, their a few decent ones but they becoming far and few between now. They generally give a poor representation of the fans, but unfortunately fans seem to be getting influenced by them pretty easily.

Yeah got to agree. Should of retired after the first time he left Juve. The last few years haven't been kind to him.

I didn't know that. Very interesting. Suprised he not resorted to a zimmerframe yet lol. How many years has he got left. Does he retire this summer?

shane88

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he announced it a while back that he would retire in the summer. From what I have been told, and the few highlight clips I have seen, he probably left it a year late though to be honest.}

Cracking read. Being a goalkeeper myself. We have been lucky to have 3 of the best goalkeepers to have ever played the game.

Honest opinion here but the only other goalkeeper that really stood out to me is Gigi Buffon (more for his consistency off around 20 years) . Wonder what your thoughts on Gigi (especially during his prime in the 00s)

What other keepers would other people loved to see at United?

shane88

{Ed001's Note - Buffon is especially outstanding when you consider he carried a back problem through most of his career.}
