Hi ed002 hope you don't mind me asking but has the situation with Ddg changed since you last told us the club had messed him about with his contract?


{Ed002's Note - No, there is still no agreement on a new contract.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 21:14:22
Thanks for the quick reply! 1 more question if that's OK, are there any clubs showing an interest in signing Ddg? Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - If he becomes available there will be interest but timing is everything with PSG looking to someone else.}

2.) 05 Jul 2019 22:58:36
Donnnnnaninananrma from ac Milan?

{Ed002's Note - Right.}



17 Dec 2018 08:44:31
Good morning ed002
Have Utd shown any interest in defender Ozan Kabak?
Thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - Ozan Kabak is a young centre back who has signed a new contract with Galatasaray so any immediate move is unlikely - and to boost his value - but much is expected of Kabak and he has attracted scouts from Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Arsenal, Fortuna Dusseldorf, Manchester United and, in particular, Inter Milan whose interest (together with Manchester City) led to the new contract. Should stay where he is or look to Germany - otherwise he would be lost at any English side.}



28 Aug 2014 14:13:30
hey eds, a name I don't recall seeing mentioned on here, sorry if he has, is Antonio rudiger, do you know if we have any interest in signing him?cheers ed.


{Ed002's Note - There was interest a while back - I don't know if any remains.}



04 Aug 2014 12:57:16
hi ed's, a few weeks back I seem to remember you mentioning that utd and a few other clubs were interested in jordie classie, is interest in him still there? Also has anything changed with regards to Memphis Depay? thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - Forget Depay - he will move elsewhere, perhaps as early as this week.}

1.) Thats a bit of a quick change from your reply on the earlier post eds.
Depay is a genuine option?

{Ed002's Note - It should have said Clasie.}

2.) Sorry eds. but is it clasie that's a genuine option? Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Depay.}

3.) 04 Aug 2014 21:34:32
Is there any truth in depay moving to Milan after he was spotted there taking pictures with fans whilst wearing a Milan shirt?

{Ed002's Note - Give me a break.}



04 Jul 2014 15:40:42
hey ed's is there really anything in this rumour about Evra and a potential move to Juventus?


{Ed002's Note - There has been interest.]

Question for ed001 if possible. I always love to read your opinions on players and without getting ahead of myself as they haven't played much top level football, how high can you see greenwood and brewster going in the game? England, Liverpool and utd look like they might be lucky for the next 15 years if things go to plan.


{Ed001's Note - they have incredible ability both of them. Greenwood's touch and technique is excellent. Brewster is the same. The issue is that both have to be given starts, not just sub appearances, they need experience and their feet kept on the ground and they can be top class. Ability-wise they are ahead of Kane at the same age, but they need to have his dedication to improving himself if they are going to make it.}

1.) 20 Jul 2019 17:40:31
Ed, I can’t speak for Brewster getting game time at Liverpool due to your strength going forward. But it looks like mason could get plenty of time with us, and i would love to see him getting it from the right in that type of inside forward role salah plays. The boy is special, and he is also a very good creator too.

{Ed001's Note - I expect both to get a lot of game time this season, Brewster would have played the role Sturridge did early season if not for injury that ruled him out for the season. I also expect Greenwood to get a lot of time, Man Utd has always prided itself on academy products and Ole knows it is part of his job to bring them through.}

2.) 20 Jul 2019 18:01:31

I think Greenwood has a better chance of getting starts and with our failure to recruit a right winger this summer it looks like he will be given a go. He is showing on Tour that he's our best player in that position and if there are any concerns about his ability on the defensive side of things we have AWB who has been an absolute beast at RB so far. Its almost as if every one v one with a winger is like a challenge that he just hates to lose. Incredible competitiveness.

What do you make of Tahith Chong? I think he is a good player too and he deserves starts as well.

Chong and Greenwood need to be given starts. What do we have to lose? Is Lingard, Mata, Lukaku (we've played him right wing) any better than them? We don't really have any other wingers bar Martial (who I think is a better striker than a winger) .

{Ed001's Note - Chong is good but I don't think he is as ready as Greenwood.}

3.) 20 Jul 2019 19:20:37
I must say Ed I am very impressed with the little I’ve seen of Brewster. He looks like a real goal scorer. My mate is a huge Liverpool fan and he reckons Brewster will play more than origi this season. I’ve a feeling both will get capped before the start of next season.

Do you know if there are any plans for angel Gomes Ed? He’s got a lot of ability and I guess I’m wondering if he will feature much next season or go on loan perhaps?

{Ed001's Note - I am expecting him to go on loan mate.}

4.) 20 Jul 2019 21:01:05
I think a loan move would be great for him, just needs to be the right one. He needs to develop physically so hopefully he can stay in England.

5.) 21 Jul 2019 01:54:54
Chong will move out remember our players are awful, Manchester is s wast land it almost liable.



04 Nov 2018 19:38:09
Hey ed001 i'd love to hear your thoughts on Bournemouths David Brooks, I've watched him at sheff utd last season and now at Bournemouth and have been really impressed with him, he's quick in movement and in mind, can finish, isn't shabby defensively, can put his foot in and is suprisingly very strong on the ball, be good to get your view on him as i love reading your player reviews, cheers.


{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the profile list, I have seen quite a bit of him over the years, even as a kid at Man City, when he was seen as too lightweight for the English game.}

1.) 04 Nov 2018 22:28:32
Been very impressed with him wiggy. Very cultured on the ball. Seems to have the perfect manager in Howe for his development at this early and critica stage of his career. Still has a lot to learn but if he keeps his head down at Bournemouth and keeps on improving and learning, then I don’t see why he can’t make a move to bigger and better things.



29 Jun 2018 12:25:53
Hey Ed002,

Just wondering if you have any information on Timothy Fosu-Mensah and whether the club plan to use him in the 1st team squad or send him on loan again? Thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - Timothy Fosu-Mensah would not be first choice so he has to bide his time and look for a loan. Valencia were interested in having join to try for the RB position with Montoya after Cancelo came and went and Vidal not been seen as good enough, but they would not want a loan.}

1.) 29 Jun 2018 12:58:51
Thanks for your reply, one more question if that's ok, has there been any interest in Juan Mata and would the club be willing to sell him? thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - He was considered by Real Madrid earlier in the year but they have a solution for that problem now. Barcelona has Mata on a list of players that could see one as an unlikely arrival, but he isn’t first choice.}



01 Mar 2017 08:58:50
hi ed002, apologies if this has been answered but can I ask what happened in the January transfer window regarding lindelof. Was it as simple as utd being happy with their options until the summer?


{Ed002's Note - THe price changed and no agreement was reached.}



02 Mar 2014 19:31:25
Hi Chris I've got 2 young boys myself and I can only imagine what your going through, stay strong buddy everyone here is behind you and your family. i'm praying for your little one mate.

People moaning about the money, why? How does it have any effect on how we support the team which is what we should be doing, not worrying about money. Maguire wouldn't of been my choice a few weeks ago but he has many positives, great in the air, a constant threat attacking corners, he's used to the prem so should settle quickly and the main one for me is he plays on the left letting lindelof play in his favoured position.

Hi Ed I see there's no Dean Henderson in the tour squad, is the plan to loan or sell him?


{Ed002's Note - Dean Henderson was at the Under 21 tournament and is not due back yet. I suspect a loan to Sheffield United will be the best option if he signs a new contract first.}

UA, ole was asked to come in to help the club after Jose was sacked, we get you love Jose but ole had nothing to do with his sacking. He had a great start results wise whether you like it or not and was appointed by the club to be permanent manager, now ole isn't exactly going to say no is he. Yes he's had a rough time towards the end of the season but he has to have time to bring in the players he wants to suit how he wants to play and whether they are players you want or not surely you, me and every fan should get behind the team and show our support, how you can say he will never be worthy is pretty dumb, no one knows how things will work out so people need to stop throwing their toys, stop speculating on things we don't have a clue about and support the team.

The only problem I saw with the young lads is apart from greenwood they all look more comfortable playing on the left side of the front 3,chong especially.

Kinggiggsy, i'm not being funny but there are 2 replies by ed002 just down the page, have a read of everything else while looking you might find other information of interest.

Just out of interest ed004, why would you want to keep a player who is unhappy and wants to leave?


{Ed004's Note - Because I dont trust the club to replace him this summer. We have a lot of other signings needed. He cant exactly throw the head up with Euros next summer. A lot of options in midfield for that french side}

I'd probably judge him over the whole of last season rather than 1 poor half of a game.
