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.

Great result yesterday but is anyone else concerned at how poor we were in the air?
In both attack and defense spurs were winning everything.

yer man

1.) 14 Jan 2019 15:40:41
I did make a comment about that somewhere below about our defence. In attack when Lukaku came on he won quite a bit although by then the supporting players were too tired to chase the headers down.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 18:24:41
The team has spent the last 3 years relying on Fellaini or Smalling to win aerial duels. With Lukaku and Matic occasionally winning one.

So its like a new skill many will have to learn. Also I think our tactics played into them playing more crosses than usual. Lingard blocking off Winks and forcing Spurs into wide areas to create, increased the number of crosses coming into our area.

Something to work on.



05 Aug 2018 21:36:34
With talk of Everton now signing Mina and Wolves bringing in a new central defender, does this mean the deals for Rojo amd Smalling are of?

yer man

1.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:19
I would assume so.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 22:27:17
at this rate they need to sign Daniel Levy.



02 Jul 2018 12:15:38
Having seen the players nominated for Golden Boy in the Review of the day, it is great to see a few Manchester united players in there. I am surprised Rashford or Chong aren't there too but you can't have it all.
On a side note, can I ask why TMF is listed as a Crystal palace player?

yer man

{Ed001's Note - just because he was on loan there.}

1.) 02 Jul 2018 16:03:34
TFM signed for Palace, don't you read the news?



21 Jun 2018 15:30:47
So Fred has been confirmed officially. I'm glad they kept that quiet so it didn't effect his World Cup appearances.

They just need to be very clear on the team sheet which Fred the Red they mean :-)

yer man

1.) 21 Jun 2018 15:54:21
I know i have seen some pics of Fred (the red) and he has some weight on him and a very big head.

could get on a one or two corners.



03 May 2018 10:31:59
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?

Great reply and insight Ed. I was speaking about this with friends recently and the consensus was Blanc, Simeone, Pochettino, (maybe Beilsa) and Allegri. One outsider was mentioned too that might be a decent punt and that was Nuno Santo from Wolves. a bit inexperienced but has a good pedigree and playing good football with a currently unfashionable side.
However the core of the matter is we currently have a manager so this is all hypothetical until the case is otherwise.

Sorry have I missed something? I thought we already had a manager.
We need to stop crucifying current staff and get behind them and let them get on with the job without the added pressure of fan criticism. Whether we like the style of play or not we have won trophies under Mourinho and hopefully there are more to come.

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.

Sorry Beast had to give that a thumbs down in case I started to picture it.

but. (dramatic pause) definitely need to bolster the positions you mentioned lb/ rb/ rw and a cb over the next few windows. It doesn't look like any of that will happen in this.

I have to agree with the comments on Pogba, and Fred will definitely give him a chance to play the way he should be playing but we are still missing a Matuidi type player, I think Matuidi was the difference in midfield for France.

Totally agree with those comments but I would have taken of Witzel instead of Fellani. It seemed only like Hazard and Fellani actually wanted to try to get to the final.

I agree with most of that Mort but still think Rojo is a good backup. Jones and Smalling haven't made the grade and although Bailley is the best we have his injury record worries me, so definitely think another 'top' CB would be needed. The big issue will be getting rid of the makeweights for a decent fee.
