Ed - I noticed on the Chelsea page that you mentioned Ziyech is now less likely to leave the club. Does this have anything to do with United now having a preferred (and perhaps even more likely) option for that position?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

07 Aug 2022 14:59:29
Ziyech has probably watched the first half and though f%£# that!

Any truth in the rumour we’ve bid somewhere in the region of €8/ 9 million for Marko Arnautovic?

Struggling with this one of true, both in terms of quality and attitude. Again at the price would reinforce my theory we aren’t exactly flush.

{Ed002's Note - I would need to check.}

Seem to remember him being a prima dona at West Ham and Hammers fans hated him.

He has just one goal less than Osimhem.

Any eds know of genuine interest for Leroy sarnie.

{Ed002's Note - One club enquired after him with Bayern and were told Sane was not for sale. I am pretty sure that there have been no offers and he will stay where he is. I doubt he would be interested in dropping..}down out of the Champions League in any case,

07 Aug 2022 12:03:12
Is he related to the Earl of Sandwich?

{Ed014's Note - 🤦‍♂️🤣

Shaw would be delighted, he loves a sarnie.

Agree1 0Disagree

Unless it’s an Elvis special fools gold, Shaw won’t touch a sarnie.

Ed, do we have any interest in Gakpo?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

06 Aug 2022 13:39:52
Don’t really understand the Gakpo story from this morning. He’s a left winger - Rashford, Sancho, Garnacho, Eriksen, Elanga, Martial, Bruno, Shoretire can all play there.

Lazy ‘he is Dutch so we will link him to United for clicks’ journalism, to me.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 12:01:04
Thanks Ed. Who are the alternatives to Antony?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any new targets beyond those I have mentioned.}

06 Aug 2022 17:12:49
The mere mention of Gapko sends the same shivers of fear running down my spine I got when we signed Depay and after two weeks you could tell he was wildly out of his depth.

Agree0 0Disagree

Sane would be just about the best left footed right winger we could get and would be an incredible signing - not sure the guy with the etihad tattooed on his back would be interested in the move though!

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 19:15:16
Downsie I always thought he played on the left for city he was top before his injury

At the time he was at city he could ghost past players with ease not seen much of him since but the city sane i would take today.

I've heard a rumour of garner to palace on loan, have any of the eds heard anything?

05 Aug 2022 21:01:13
Would make sense, they will be looking for a Gallagher replacement.

Agree5 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 15:12:00
Personally would like him to stay and see what part he can play in the midfield rotation. The high energy press from EtH will need more than just the first 11 to be successful. That being said if he does go out I have no problem with his next stage of development under Viera at Palace.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 23:36:17
Brad, I really like the look of Garner. That said he should only stay of he's going to play.

At this point in his career he cannot afford to be 4th or 5th choice playing 800 minutes a season.

To continue his development and have a chance of reaching his potential he needs to be playing 2000-3000 minutes of football.

If EtH wants to play him and thinks he can play at the club to the standard needed then great.

However, if Fred, McTominay, Eriksen, Donny and a potential new signing will all feature ahead of him then send the lad out on loan.

Hey Ed's and everyone out there. Just a quick one about Amine Gouiri - have we any interest? 22, versatile and a forward. Reportedly available for around 40million.

{Ed002's Note - None. He will be moving elsewhere.}

05 Aug 2022 09:52:23
Thanks a million Ed. Just getting panicky at this stage.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 13:11:00
Getting bit panicky here too as we desperately need a striker…

RUMOURS suggest that Joel Glazer is blocking Ronaldos exit (obvious commercial value, most important thing to JG allegedly) which then has a knock on on effect for any incoming striker targets who won’t want to play second fiddle to CR (ie Sesko) plus paying his huge wages impacting on finances for another striker.

Ideally, CR woukd have left, freeing up his wages to sign another striker and allowing incoming to be enticed by being main forward Manchester United not run on sensible footballing decisions nowadays.

Maybe there’s a decent striker out there who’s cheap and doesn’t mind being back up….

Ighalo anyone?!

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed014's Note - has it got to the palpable stage yet? The panic that is!

05 Aug 2022 13:49:00
To be honest if JG is refusing to sanction Ronaldo's departure then the solution is simple. Refuse to play him.

See how beneficial Ronaldo is to the commercial value when he's sitting in the stands and all the bad press that will be around because of it.

Pretty sure Ronaldo in the stands would tank the share price and impact comment revenue far more than him leaving.

Agree5 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 13:58:20
Ronaldo has only ever looked out for ronaldo. should never have been brought back and now his circus is ramping up to the max. I hope Eth is back in this situation, weather that is getting rid, or being aloud to bench him as much as he sees fit. Hopefully it's getting rid.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 14:29:15
Think he’s staying Roon…

Just hope he doesn’t blunt new pressing/ playing style.

Guess it’s moments like these where all the new experienced coaches (ETZh, MVG, SMc, ER, Benni, Fletch lol) will eat their keep.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 16:24:54
We should be aiming to have Ronaldo gone in the next couple of weeks, but looks like he is going to end up staying.

Despite this, there is no chance at all of him being a bit part player if he does stay. He's our best player. Suddenly hoping Ronaldo is benched or dropped entirely to have Martial take his place is also a weird one as Martial was desperate to leave earlier this year and he'd be the one taking his place. Ronaldo's behaviour can probably be labeled disrespectful to the club but you can't accuse him of lacking professionalism in terms of his dedication to his sport, Martial has had that criticism of him for the last few years.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 20:13:55
You know the saying, you should never go back to you ex. If she cheated on you once she will do it again and here we are. Let him leave free up wages and move on.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 22:26:00
Rj he’s bottled out of the whole of pre season so you can stop blowing smoke up his backside.

Hi Ed,
Have any clubs shown interest in Lindelof?

{Ed002's Note - Victor Lindelof (CM) Mr mourinho sees value in the player but perhaps not at an acceptable price.}

03 Aug 2022 22:20:05
Good evening Ed, just a quick question if u don't mind?! Are the club now looking a ziyech? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any=y approach to Chelsea at this time, but obviously EtH knows the player.}

04 Aug 2022 09:04:08
Ziyech could be a sensible move if Antony is proving too expensive/ difficult.

He knows EtH and his system/ style of play.

He knows the EPL and shouldn't take time to adjust to playing for us.

He wouldn't cost a huge fee, potentially leaving more in the kitty to spend elsewhere.

While I also think his age (29) is a positive. He would add experienced to a young side, while not being a long term road block on path into the first team for the likes of Garnacho, Elanga, Shoretire, Amad and Pellistri. Allowing several of them to go out on loan and gain the experience they need to come back and make that step up into the first team.

Agree5 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 09:17:01
Would be a positive acquisition, if true. Would have him on the left wing in the mould of tadic for Ajax.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 09:17:41
Personally I feel it is a poor signing. A short term solution that will cause us problems in the future if we are trying to move him on and replace him with the right player. As I don’t see us giving him a one year contract.
It’s a panic buy regardless of his affiliation with ETH. Too often we don’t wait for the player we actually need. I would rather see some of our young players given the opportunity. You would have to feel bad for them if the manager brought in a Chelsea outcast instead of giving them a chance.

Agree4 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 09:19:05
I don't think the Chelsea fans rate him but I think he'd be a solid pursuit, maybe as an alternative to Antony who is looking less likely. The Utd premium tax seems to go up by the day.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 10:10:35
I don't think it will be a bad signing.
You look at the stats, Ziyech and Antony look similar. 29 is not old.
Also if ETH thinks he will play well, let's get him.
Abraham and Tomori improved when they left Chelsea.
If ETH wants Ziyech, I hope the board are not against it. ETH needs to be backed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - have you watched Ziyech play? He is like a lazier, worse Mahrez mate. Avoid like the plague, he is simply not that good.}

04 Aug 2022 10:26:06
Salah and De Bruyn were turdesque at Chelsea too to be fair.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 10:26:44
Agreed Ed001, Ziyech a disaster. Ironic, because Rohan is the exact type of fan that would be calling for his head.

Agree7 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 10:51:27
He has been nothing but underwhelming since he came to the premier league.

For a wide man, i don't think i have ever seen him beat his opposition full back

Also he has this tendency to just hoof the ball into the box in the name of creativity or shoot from ridiculous angles that have little chance of coming off. We already have Bruno doing that, don't need another player.

Agree3 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 13:05:04
If it means not having to watch Elanga, I’d take it!

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 13:32:49
Thanks for the reply Ed, much appreciated as always 👍.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 16:42:41
Would rather sign nobody if we can't get Antony. Keep Sancho right and give the rest of the game time to garnacho and amad. They need it.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2022 17:10:57
Agree angel agree red whiskey.

Ah have we decided Elanga isn’t good enough now? Bring kids through then slate them after a season in a poor team.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 08:38:00
Don't see the slating of elanga. Still an unknown quantity. He may turn out to be a good little player, he may not. Still rather blood him than buy ziyech. He's been dreadful at Chelsea. Elanga has shown early promise.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 08:50:49
GDS2 - TBF Elanga hasn't done anything to prove he's good enough and deserve to be around the first team.

I think he wouldn't be around first team if it wasn't because of lack of depth.

Just like Amad and Pellestri I don't think they're ever going be good enough for Man Utd.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 09:36:41
Short memories at times on players.

Elanga came in and made an impact last season, but then as the form fell completely off a cliff he was run into the ground. He is a very talented kid and while he may not go on and be a world beater, he adds some value to the squad and let's see where he ends up in a couple of years. He has some good attributes that if developed could see a pretty good player.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 10:02:43
GDS, who's slating Elanga?

I like him and this attitude, I do wonder whether he has the skills suited to EtH's more cerebral style. He does seem to suit a more simplistic counter attacking approach. However, we'll only know if he's given the chance.

The issue is that about whether Elanga gets a chance.

It's about squad depth. Currently Elanga is the third most experienced option to be play in the wide areas.

He is 20 years old with less than 2000 minutes in the senior team, which equates to around 21 full games.

If either Rashford or Sancho get injured then then Elanga starts and has to play the whole 90 minutes more of less.

If one of Sancho or Rashford are struggling for form than Elanga is the first option to replace them.

Beyond Elanga we have Amad who has failed to make an impact either with us in his limited minutes or on loan with Rangers. Pellistri who has also not torn it up on loan. Or a recently turned 18 year old Garnacho.

I'd expect one of not both of Amad and Pellistri to head out on loan. Leaving just Elanga and Garnacho as back up to Rashford and Sancho.

Realistically we need another senior option in the wide areas. Especially given Rashford's poor form and injury record over the past 18 months.

If we have some decent cup runs, especially in the Europa League then we could play as many as 60 games this season. That equates to around 5400 minutes of football.

Players typically play 2500-3500 minutes a season. More than that risks fatigue and injury.

If Rashford and Sancho can play 7000 minutes between them in the two wide roles that still leaves 3800 minutes to be picked up by other wide options. As I've said Elanga managed just under 2000 minutes last season. Could he double that game time this season?

We need 4 maybe even 5 viable wide options in our squad, with all of them picking up between 2000-3000 minutes.

Currently we have two options, a kid with less than 2000 minutes under his belt (Elanga) and a younger kid with 15 minutes of senior football under his belt (Garnacho) .

Agree5 0Disagree

05 Aug 2022 11:33:53
It’s very simple. Both Elanga and Ziyech aren’t good enough in my eyes. You can look into it as much as you like, but the facts are there for all to see.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 13:30:40
Sorry firemanc but your opinion does not constitute as fact.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2022 19:54:07
Wasn't Ziyech a problem behind the scenes at Ajax, seem to remember it coming up before Chelsea signed him, if so that's the last thing we need.
