With the countdown to the end of the transfer window do any of the eds think that United will sign a new winger or wing back before the end of August?

yer man

{Ed004's Note - I've a feeling Zlatan will be the last signing}

1.) 24 Aug 2017 20:07:01
Some talk of Arda Turan on a free transfer.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 20:35:40
Free? They should be paying us if that's serious.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 21:35:46
Now that Shaw is back, I doubt it. We have Shaw, Darmian, Blind, Rojo, Tuanzabe and Young all capable of playing LB. Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Lindelof and Tuanzabe at RB. We don't play with wingers, and we already have Rashford, Martial, Mickey, Lingard, Mata and Young as wide players. Besides, it seems like the elite fullbacks available have already moved. just my opinion.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 22:25:37
I still think failing to by a wide man will cost us this season.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 22:48:41
Thanks ed004 that was my feeling just wondered if anything else in the pipeline

The word was Jose wanted a specialist winger and or a wing back if that wasn't possible I still think and hope there might be a surprise.

6.) 25 Aug 2017 09:48:51
More talk of Lemar today.

7.) 25 Aug 2017 16:42:51
I hope we go all out for Thomas Lemar before the window closes!?

8.) 25 Aug 2017 17:23:21
Apparently needs to be done by Monday as he's off on international duty after that and won't be released.

9.) 25 Aug 2017 23:17:11
Rosa, Free transfers are more of a Liverpool thing, so maybe Arda Turan is heading there.

10.) 26 Aug 2017 07:29:42

For once I agree with you, we need that wide attacking player, a Sanchez, Bale type. I haven't seen enough of Lemar but failure to land that type of player leaves us short.

11.) 26 Aug 2017 13:01:45
Nah Liverpool don't need him. They need a keeper who can catch, two centrebacks who can tackle and a midfielder who can lead. What am I on about their bound to sign him.

12.) 26 Aug 2017 13:39:11
Apparently they're in for the Ox.

13.) 28 Aug 2017 16:20:36
Or apparently we will be in the hunt for Lemar. Seeing as you lot want him, that's got to hurt 😉.

14.) 29 Aug 2017 21:19:28
I would listen to the press too much Bobby so far this window we have been linked with everyone from captain birdseye to grotbags I doubt we would want lemar (personally I'd take grotbags ahead of Lemar she is much better up top 😉)



04 Aug 2017 17:26:00
I know I am at risk of creating a guitan but I was wondering if the eds can clarify something regarding Bale.
Is he likely to go?
Are we genuinely interested?
And if we couldn't afford Neymar, can we afford Bale this summer?
Thanks in advance.

yer man

{Ed004's Note - I think he is unlikely to move, I'm sure if he was made available we would be interested and he will cost far less than Neymar so we would be able to afford him}

1.) 04 Aug 2017 20:40:50
Thanks makes sense and good news i think he would add a bit of extra flair that we are missing.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 21:59:07
Standby for Ronaldo rumours i fully expect him to throw the idea of a return to England out there now Neymar earns more than him, he likes nothing more than flaunting the idea of a move to Utd to get some more money.

3.) 05 Aug 2017 01:34:20
He jist said it in the medi today he wouldn't mind returning back to England.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 08:47:25
Jaimej you called it first, beat me to it. Ronaldo does it every year but the beauty is that somehow United fans still believe him.



11 Jun 2017 13:33:42
Good afternoon eds. :-)
Recently there was a lot of chatter about Fabinho to United but that seems to have gone quiet, is this because of the internationals or is there another reason?
Thanks in advance folks

yer man

{Ed004's Note - There has been no recent developments}

1.) 11 Jun 2017 13:40:45
Thanks for that:-)
I think he would be a great addition and worthy eventual replacement for Carrick

2.) 11 Jun 2017 13:59:31
I'd imagine it's close to being done.

Ed002 with his sharkopod seems to be absolutely bang on with his knowledge.

3.) 11 Jun 2017 14:54:56
'Rumours' of it being announced later on today, certainly not holding my breath though.



25 Jul 2016 21:49:06
Mourinho has already said that the last position he is looking for is a midfielder, Apart from 'he who shall not be named', what other players would the wise and not so wise on here consider?
How about the likes of Iborro from Seville.

yer man

1.) 26 Jul 2016 06:19:43
Whoever it is, they must be they must be replacing schneidelin. Jose usually always has a Dm pogba isn't that. Carrick and schwein are so who else out there is a world class box to box? Hard to name one.

2.) 26 Jul 2016 09:35:05
think he'll try for matic.

3.) 26 Jul 2016 09:50:18
Carrick is not and never has been a dm. Nor is Bastian. Nor is Blind.

4.) 26 Jul 2016 11:03:27
I totally disagree Mort. Esp with Carrick and Blind. Blind even played a few games in the "De jong" position for lvg at the WC.

5.) 26 Jul 2016 12:07:48
Holding-Defensive mid - Carrick is the definition of that position.

6.) 26 Jul 2016 12:18:35
There is no de-jong position. he's not good enough to have a position named after him lol.

7.) 26 Jul 2016 14:04:44
GATTUSO or Keane or Makelele would have been better alternatives to name that position after.

8.) 26 Jul 2016 15:04:49
Keane definitely wasn't a CDM. He was as box to box as they came! Unless you mean his final 2 seasons.



19 Aug 2015 22:17:48
the press will now start looking for new names or reasons we didn't buy pedro
The one i'm surprised hasn't been link yet but would love is Griezman. I know he has only joined Athletico last year and has buy out of 57m if we haven't got muller, he might be a deadline day punt.
Do any of the eds think we could pull it off?

yer man

{Ed004's Note - Not sure. Apparently he is a manutd fan though}

1.) 21 Aug 2015 09:14:59
We have been linked with him

2.) 21 Aug 2015 09:41:11
Haha to be fair Harry if they've got two feet and play professional football then it's safe to say we have been link with them.

3.) 21 Aug 2015 12:04:34
No hope for me then? got to stick to this Sunday league stuff.

With reports coming out that Eric Bailly has been suffering from an illness, I was wondering if any of the Eds would know if this a solvable condition or something that be a constant issue?
thanks in advance.

yer man

{Ed001's Note - sorry I don't know.}

1.) 03 May 2018 10:54:19
thanks ed.

2.) 03 May 2018 12:21:13
He missed the awards ceremony because he had to go to the dentist. Could be something to do with that.

3.) 03 May 2018 16:05:56
Jose saying he is favouring the other centre-backs (Jones, Smalling, Lindelof and Rojo) as they have world cup commitments whereas Bailly does not as did not qualify. Have not seen Rojo, so not sure how that pans out, but still rather odd. Personally would prefer Jose focussed on assembling a team that will win the FA Cup, not worry about the form of players going to Russia.

4.) 03 May 2018 19:18:17
That comment from him didn’t make sense, why is Sanchez playing every game?



18 Jan 2018 14:16:08
Im not sure if this has been asked recently, so I apologise in advance for any duplication,
are United trying to sign other players during this window or is the potential Sanchez one the only business they are conducting apart from extending contracts of those already with United?

yer man

{Ed002's Note - They have an interest in others.}

1.) 18 Jan 2018 14:31:00
Do United have an interest in Jean Michel Seri Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I know of. I am not aware of any approach from Manchester United to Nice at all and I very much doubt there has been. I know nothing of his agent at all so cannot say if they have approached him, but three other sides have spoken directly with Nice about the player who has made it clear he won't sign a new contract - which means he will move in the summer. If they did have a serious interest it would also mean that they are stepping back from long-term targets who they plan on looking to again - which might of happened, I don't know.}

2.) 18 Jan 2018 15:23:57
If you have the time and inclination Ed who are the others, or should I just wait for the next Sharkopod?

{Ed002's Note - Or read the posts.}

3.) 18 Jan 2018 15:26:20
thanks ed, and are they hoping to have them finished by the end of this window?
I know that's a bit specualtive.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timing of transfers.}

4.) 18 Jan 2018 18:52:34
Be interesting to see if we sign Sanchez will we still go after bale in the summer. or will we be after a few younger players even though we should have a few good young players coming through the next few years.



27 Jul 2017 15:16:33
Last night's game with Barcelona saw a first appearance for the grey third kit, was it just me or was it very close to the Barcelona top. I'd say it would have been difficult to tell the difference in a fast moving game.
Still not keen on it, I think the badge should have at least have been red.
What do others think?

yer man

1.) 27 Jul 2017 15:43:14
I like the idea of the kit but feel it seems too much like a training top.
I did wonder why we chose to wear it when Barcelona were wearing their light blue away kit. They were far too close in colour for me. Not sure it would have been allowed in an EPL game. I assumed it was a marketing decision rather than a tactical one by Mourinho.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 16:13:26
I like it. The away kit is the best we have this year, probably the best we've had in a while.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 16:18:22
I just hope it doesn't turn out like the previous grey one and glad they didn't put three red stripes down the shoulder or it would have been very close to a previous liverpool away kit.
But definitely a strange choice for the two kits to be used in the same game.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 16:33:14
I hate gray, there are so many better options.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 17:37:18
Like grey ajh😂😂😂.

6.) 27 Jul 2017 18:02:49
Last time we adopted a grey kit was in 1996 and I think it lasted one game! Didn't we even change out of it at half time?! I seem to remember players complaining about visuals.

7.) 27 Jul 2017 18:44:13
Didnt we lose and blame the grey kit? My nan spent a fortune on that top and then had to buy another for me. She was a fiery little woman at the best of times and she wasnt pleased ☺☺.

8.) 27 Jul 2017 18:54:52
King giggsy the players came in at halftime complaining they couldn't see each other and switched into different shirts.

9.) 27 Jul 2017 19:01:58
KLOOT would be having a hernia, reading this thread 😀.

10.) 27 Jul 2017 19:31:08
Sigh, grey and gray are both different spellings of the same thing and both widely used.

11.) 27 Jul 2017 19:39:08
The grey kit is very nice I think. Unlike the old one, which had lots of dark bits on and could have possibly faded into the background, this one won't. Loads of teams have had grey without a problem.

Love the picture build into it personally.

12.) 27 Jul 2017 20:29:28
Yes I beleive we were playing at the Dell and Southampton gave us a bit of a first half thrashing.

I seem to remember losing 6-3.

Although I could be wrong.



17 Jul 2017 23:21:40
It has been suggested that a fee has been agreed with Inter for Perisic, i just hope bad teeth isn't grounds to fail a medical and i'm not sure if we should take him now if he has to go to Croatia every time he gets a toothache :-)

yer man

1.) 18 Jul 2017 00:06:37
Hehe they do smile better there though!



10 Jul 2017 20:53:46
Good evening eds,
a few reports circulating that we have had a fee agreed for bakayoko, is this just news making or is there any truth in it?
I read on the Chelsea page that he didn't have a medical last week due to a knee injury
Is this likely then to put a halt to any transfer for him this summer?
Thanks in advance.

yer man

{Ed004's Note - he will sign for Chelsea. I reckon this is an attempt to make it look like Chelsea have beaten us to Bakayoko just like we apparently beat them to Lukaku}

1.) 10 Jul 2017 23:11:38
Thanks ed
Glad to have that cleared up.

2.) 10 Jul 2017 23:29:17
Should be noted most are rehashing a Daily Star article from June and changing some info.

{Ed007's Note - It's only Chelsea, Millwall and Burnley fans that read the Daily Star so cheers for letting us know.}

Totally agree with that mort. if we need goals and they aren't coming from the young ones. (who deserve their chance) . He's handy to have around.

How much would you value Fellani at, seeing he cost us 27m three years ago.
For me it would have to be at least close to 20m.

In a heartbeat, cool on the ball and threads a great pass very Carrickesque.
The only query I would have about him is - How good is he at sitting and holding?
Not sure about that aspect of his game but this is the part we are lacking. At the price quoted (£30m-£40m) definitely seems to be worth a punt if he is available at all.

Mitchell won reserve player of the season even though he's been at Hearts since January so he must be doing alright.

There have suggestions that Demitri Mitchell could fill the left back or wing back positions but I hope he gets his chance soon so we can see if he really has the goods to move up to this stage or if we need to look further afield.

My thoughts are that Lindelof is starting to come into his own and Rojo, Jones and Smalling can do a job but a back two out of these three always looks a bit dodgy. Each of them need someone to 'steady the ship' when they are being rash or caught out of position.
We all can see how good Baily is when he gets the chance but i'm concerned about his injury record so far, he hasn't had a decent number of months to see how good he can be. I just hope he isn't our 'Ledley King'. But having said all that the defence although not earth shattering, have the chance to be solid if the combination is kept right but reckon it will always be a fluent one rather than a strong double act. I don't think spending more will solve much because the ones who might make a difference such as Picque, Varane and Ramos are unattainable so we may expect a frustrating few years of defensive uncertainty but it will still be enough to help us get results and hopefully trophies.
