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
Jaimej

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
YM.

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
YM.


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.

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.}


 

 

06 Jul 2017 18:10:46
With all this paper talk about Lukaku and morata, I would be disappointed if we went for two strikers because I think it would hinder the ones we already have at the club but what will be will be. I think too many are getting on the band wagon and making noise just to fill the vacuum because the club hasn't made any comments. The only thing that can be certain if the reports read right is that Everton have confirmed that nohing is definite.
Only time will tell who we sign and I think we will know by end of business tomorrow so whoever is signed camn join the tour from the start.
Ym.

yer man

 

 

28 Jun 2017 16:21:10
Brace yourselves

Three days to the transfer window opens officially so expect the random stories to intensify

Here's hoping we all make it out with our sanity intact.

yer man

1.) 28 Jun 2017 17:08:37
I suspect woodie will leave United's pre season games on a private jet to sign a player that's not even up for sale or having no attention of leaving his club. Just a hunch.


2.) 28 Jun 2017 17:22:42
I just hope the club leaves the transfer period with it's anal virginity intact, never mind sanity! Some of the prices being talked about for players that will barely improve us is scary.


3.) 28 Jun 2017 18:07:51
Beast we lost that as a club years ago.


4.) 28 Jun 2017 18:19:25
I'm hoping for and missing rumours from "in the know" people who've seen someone at an airport/ hotel/ restaurant etc. Or might mate's cat knows the dog of. etc.


5.) 28 Jun 2017 19:39:22
Latest rumor is morata for 80m. I'm done.


6.) 28 Jun 2017 21:15:02
Not sure I would be that bothered if we didn't sign anyone else. I think we have an exciting crop of players at the moment. Of course, it doesn't hurt to improve; but I can't see shelling out 80 odd million of a guy who hasn't done a great deal in the game to warrant such a sum of money being a great signing. Sure, Morata has good qualities; and I don't doubt he would score goals, but I for one still think we have two genuine top draw strikers in Rash and Martial; and I for one would rather see the pair of them fight it out for the number 9.


7.) 28 Jun 2017 23:33:30
I remember years ago when the site was "football rumours" and every team was on the same page. It was before the 2010 world cup when we were linked with Ozil. Someone wrote on the page "I have a friend who works at the United Megastore, they just got a big delivery of boxes of the letter Z for printing Ozil on the back of the jerseys. Signing to be announced very soon"

Safe to say I lost many a bet when he joined Madrid that summer hahah. That's definitely one of my favourites!


8.) 28 Jun 2017 23:41:52
Finally the price of players that are asked in Football Manager game are becoming real.
I won't complain anymore that clubs ask 35 million pounds for an unknown left back or 80 for an unknown left winger.

By the way, this post has the best string of answer that I ever seem as a post in this website.

Legendary stuff, people!


9.) 29 Jun 2017 01:07:07
I'm not confident in rashford or martial at the moment to lead the line Tuor10, they are certainly not top drawer strikers as you say, they are talents with massive potential at the moment, we need the finished article for the start of the season in all honesty. I'm not happy at the money being banded around for morata and he's not the finished article either and we are having our pants pulled down yet AGAIN but it's not my money and I'd be more trusting in him to hit the net consistently all season than them two so If he's the best available then we have to do it I would say.


10.) 29 Jun 2017 07:15:57
Tuor10 I agree regards pushing Rashford and Martial central. But we will need at least 1 top class winger if we are to do that. We definitely need 2 more players, a winger because we don't have any and a DM. Bale and Matic would be great business.


11.) 29 Jun 2017 08:36:18
How are we having our pants pulled down? We haven't signed Morata or anyone else for that matter except a reasonably priced, very highly rated Swedish defender!


12.) 29 Jun 2017 09:16:51
Eric,

But but but the paper said we are spending 80 million on Morata, we are a joke of a club. #Woodwardout.


13.) 29 Jun 2017 21:33:43
Agree, Wazza; forgot to mention a new winger.

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.

Right footed left winger had a bucket load of assists last season. He is 25 but could be expensive as he extended his contract recenntly. He reminds me of cryuff. Not saying he is thst good just his build and drive, brilliant player would prefer him to perisic myself to be honest but not very physical.

I think we have most of parts in place for a really good team. Hopefully miki and martial can be the regular creative element but a solid battling holding midfielder who can boss and (Jose seems to want) a direct left midfielder we have a potentially frightening squad for years to come.
I think the only thing that is missing is a bit more belief and confidence to drive forward and scare defences into making mistakes.
