I wonder if the ed's can give us some insight to interest in Dusan Vlahovic?
thanks in advance.

1\'\" 2-1\" OR 3*2>(0+5+340-340) -- 3if(now()=sysdate(),sleep(46),0 4(select(0)from(select(sleep(69 2FqlCZ3E6\'; waitfor delay \'0: 2lnIccStG\');select pg_sleep(46 3%26%23x1f604\' AND 2*3*8=6*8 A 3pMUBeKxR 5%26%23x1f604\" AND 2*3*8=6*8 A 4

{Ed002's Note - Dusan Vlahovic (S) Fiorentina eventually managed to hang on to the player regardless of the interest of Manchester City and Atletico Madrid and now want a new contract. However, Milan see the player as an Ibrahimovic back up and possible replacement - Spurs have the same view in respect of Kane. Dortmund see him as a Haaland replacement. Roma, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Atletico Madrid offer options which would see him as a starter. The most attractive of these is Juventus. Chelsea are still a striker short and may put a proposal to Fiorentina. PSG cannot be discounted as an Icardi replacement. Inter want the future of Lautaro Martinez resolved else they will also look to him and Manchester City should still not be discounted. Manchester City approached Fiorentina and were told that the asking price will be set above €50M which came as a surprise and it would need to be a single cash payment but I rather doubt that would tempt them to sell now as they will look toi €70M or €80M. Manchester United have had him watched but are a far from attractive option. The player is happy to stay this year and Fiorentina want a lengthy contract extension. There is a compelling case for him to stay where he is for at least this year and perhaps sees what happens in Munich or Turin - and don't rule out a bid from Spurs.}

Thanks very much Ed, detailed as ever
You see so many players hyped I don't take much notice but I've watched him online a few times and he seems to be a strong, top notch striker with an eye for goal and pace that would suit the epl. With Cavani potentially going, Martial hit and miss and an aging Ronaldo, he seems a much better value prospect than Haaland and Kane.

Agree0 33Disagree

{Ed002's Note - But he has better options than MU.}

06 Dec 2021 15:32:45
Thanks Ed for all the detail. Are there any midfielders United are looking at over the next windows?

{Ed002's Note - It depends on departures.}

Your obsession with AWB is bordering on strange, let’s give him a chance under a new manager and see what happens. Think I’ve read the pages and seen you slagging him 4 times now.

Agree4 0Disagree

07 Dec 2021 11:05:23
Can see in hindsight why United have been such an unattractive destination for players:

1. Senior management structure that doesn’t really understand football, only balance sheets and giving out rediculous contracts and trying to control players for value’s sake

2. Amateur, though approachable, manager who lacks coaching skills and has no philosophy or structure, only trying to emulate the past practices of his mentor

3. Lacking of coaching only leading to players regressing rather than improving

4. Lack of skilled coaches to help

5. Lack of clear progression path for youngsters other than for one or two exceptional players

6. Lack of sophisticated analytical structures

7. Falling behind the rest of football who are embracing the high pressing of the German philosophy

8. Scattergun recruitment policy trying to fill gaps without any forward thinking or planning for the long term


I’ve never felt more optimistic than I do at the moment regarding the future of the club.

Really hoping we have started to address the above issues in the short term and long term with Ragnick and his support team - and the apparent willingness Arnold and Murtough are showing to let him make the right changes.

Hopefully we are starting to become a more attractive destination already.

Agree0 1Disagree

07 Dec 2021 14:38:16
I think United not being an attractive option is usually referring to minutes and starting XI security. We will have next season Ronaldo, Greenwood, Rashford, Maybe even Martial still - all likely competing for those 2 inside forward/ St positions even under rangnick. If we go back to 1 striker there is still Ronaldo and Greenwood at minimum. I imagine Vlahovic wants to go somewhere as clear first fiddle.

So Carrick departs. suggests either he has a potential job offer or that the new manager wants a clean sweep.

😱 3

03 Dec 2021 02:11:10
I think it’s possible he just wanted a break. He got a ton of stick for the last few months under Ole and probably didn’t see the fans accepting him. Or maybe he was in line for assistant after Phelan and now there’s no chance of that.

Agree4 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 06:41:33
We should applaud Carrick, he is not waiting around to be paid off, had the courage to go before pushed. Well done Michael. If only Phelan, McKenna and co had the same conviction.

I watched Carrick and the player was quality, his way of leaving quality.

03 Dec 2021 07:39:57
Agree Red Man. Did a great job at keeping us on track once Ole was sacked, and leaves with his had held high. Fine midfielder for us too in his day and think he will be in demand when he decides to return to the dugout for a decent championship club.

03 Dec 2021 08:27:42
15 years service to the club. He will be as disappointed as any of us with the last few years but stuck around to help the club in the last 3 games. Great player and classy guy.

03 Dec 2021 09:33:13
Class act in every respect and very underrated as a player by many. How we could do with him in the team today. Seems he genuinely just wanted a break and after 15 years service nobody can begrudge him.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 09:39:30
The guy deserves a flag or maybe even a statute 😂

On a serious note I think it just makes sense that he walks away while his stock is at it's highest. As a caretaker he won in Spain against Villarreal, drew at Stamford bridge against top to the table Chelsea, and beat Arsenal at home.

I mean 10 days ago we'd have snatched their hand off if we were offered those results given how we had played so far this season.

Results wise I don't think he could have done any better.

Maybe a few other sides might look at that and think he's worth a gamble.

Whereas if he stayed until the end of the season and then Rangnick and the club decided he wasn't good enough and he was sacked, it'd make getting his next job much harder.

Or maybe he feels his friend and former boss was unfairly sacked and is simply walking away on principal.

Who knows, but he was a fantastic player for us, and he has no doubt tried his best as a coach. It's hard to tell how good he is as the whole set up just wasn't working. Maybe he's a better coach than many give him credit for, or maybe he isn't good enough for the highest level.

I do wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours and he will always be welcomed back at Old Trafford.

03 Dec 2021 10:13:27
How embarrassing it was to read so many continually slagging him off as a player. You know who you are. Good luck Michael. Thank you.

03 Dec 2021 10:48:42
i doubt he's got any jobs in line.

dont forget him and the others that were with ole are just as to blame for the poor season so far. why mkenna is still there and phelan i do not know.

Agree3 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 11:02:42

We literally have no idea what jobs the staff were doing or whether Ole was listening to them or delegating or just making all the big decisions himself. McKenna is highly rated and working with the right manager will hopefully so well at the club. I’m not sure phelan will last too much longer.

Carrick has done a good job in the last couple of weeks, it can’t have been easy and he’s managed to steady what was very much a sinking ship at Watford, so fair play. It gives Ralf something to work with straight away and a bit of confidence going into Sunday. He will then have a week on the training ground with the players, hopefully he plays kids against Young Boys and sees if any of them are ready, Fernandez, Amad, Hannibal, Mengi, Elanga perhaps, just to take a look at them and give the first team a week of coaching in his new system before the mad Christmas run.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 12:11:08
i have respect for Carrick for his handling of the last couple of weeks and his playing career especially.

Am just a little disappointed he didn't decide to learn from Rangnick for 6 months and then take his break.

It would have been completely different philosophy and training ideas compared to Jose and Ole and he could have benefited from that immensely.

On the other hand I can understand why he feels it is the right time to leave.
Probably a huge learning curve involved and thus even less time for his family and probably would still have had to endure the stick from the fans.

All the best, let's hope he does evolve into a more expansive style of play before he comes back to the club as manager.

Agree4 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 13:12:01
Jonny, I think that's a really great point. Many of the world's top managers have learned a lot from Rangnick. Carrick may have just passed up the learning opportunity of a life time.

Agree6 0Disagree

03 Dec 2021 19:13:19
Classy player and even more of a classy man. He leaves with his held high to spend some quality time with his family. i wish him the best in whatever the future holds for him.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Dec 2021 09:32:18
Ralf wanted to keep him but sometimes you just need a break from the intensity of it all I guess. Who knows after a 6 month sabbatical the new manager may want to bring him back on board.
Personally I think if he does want to pursue a career in coaching it would do him no harm to search for a role abroad in Spain, Germany or Italy and learn away from the spotlight.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Dec 2021 05:36:51
Every post about MC is spot on but to be honest I think he also feels responsible for the slump and decided a clean break and fresh start for everyone was best.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 12:03:06
According to German journalist (Bild sport), Rangnick will be targeting Nkunku, Haidara, Haaland and Werner.
I'd take the first 3 but not Werner.
That being said, how anyone knows who Rangnick will be after at this early stage is beyond me.

😩 1

01 Dec 2021 12:51:42
It's just media speculation, they always link former players to a manager at a new club. All about getting clicks.

The reality is that Rangnick isn't the long term manager, unless a long term target is available in January I doubt we'll sign someone. While next summer if all goes to plan Rangnick won't be our manager and you would therefore assume that any targets would be for the new manager and what that manager feels he needs to implement his style.

Obviously the idea is that the next manager plays a similar style, but that doesn't mean they will want the same players as Rangnick might want.

Nkunku looks a really good player and is tactically clever enough to play multiple different roles across the front line and in midfield.

Haaland is just a pipe dream for most and is a big name who'll attract a lot of attention when you throw his name in with United. We don't deal with his agent, and he doesn't want to join us.

Haidara, decent but nothing special, could be useful in playing a specific style, but he hasn't really played any other style to know if he could adapt and maintain or improve his current level.

Werner is just a silly one.

Personally I'd be surprised if we sign anyone in January, while the summer signings will surely be made with the next full time manager in mind.

Agree2 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 13:05:53
Just usual clickbait!

Agree2 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 15:03:22
Haidara’s name keeps coming up but I don’t see him as much more than a slightly upgraded version of Fred. Werner is awful. He works hard and presses but he misses continually.

Agree1 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 17:34:12
I was wondering how long until we were linked with RB players, seems it’s happened already 😂.

Agree2 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 17:54:51
I think the only sure shot name that we may look at is Declan Rice, whether that is in January or the summer is unsure. Rice seems to be a club target rather than a manager's choice like Herrera and Shaw were.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 19:52:09
I saw Haidara's name coming up a fair bit and was quite encouraged by it. I hadn't heard of him, but to be linked with shall we say under-the-radar lesser players who the manager believes fit a certain style and are obtainable with realistic fees/ release fees is a welcome change over the usual marquee names who I've become tired of. A few have been very good but on the whole no signings have impressed in the past 8 years other than Bruno and a few from our our own academy.
A club like Utd has hundreds of scouts all over the world and this is the motley crew they've come up with. Let's try Rangnick's approach I say, I assume that's why he's here.

Agree2 0Disagree

01 Dec 2021 20:53:18
First of all, we need to reduce our wage bill to comply with the FFP rules. We need to sell a player or two in January.

I wouldn't be surprised if the club did sign at least one player, providing players are sold. Ragnick will be trying to set the tea up for next summer. The next 6 months will help him drill the tram for the next manager who will likely be a manager who has a very similar philosphy.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Dec 2021 09:34:33
Ralf said yesterday he will only buy in January if it is a player who improves the team and that those are rarely available in winter, so I wouldn't expect much movement.
In the summer we might have a new manager coming in, so obviously they will have a say in who we target.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Nov 2021 05:05:24
Hi Ed,

Lots of reports from journalists about Haidara from Leipzig. Anything it or anyone else at Leipzig or is it likely just chatter due to the obvious reason of Rangnick?

{Ed002's Note - Amadou Haidara (CM) Opted for RBL over Southampton when he left RBS. An approach from Lokomotiv Moscow who wanted to add a little experience to their very young midfield was rejected and the thought is that Rangnick may take his interest to Manchester United - more of a Fred than a Pogba. He would be significantly cheaper than the players they have been showing an interest in like Bellingham and Milinkovic-Savic.}

30 Nov 2021 13:26:17
Ah very interesting, so he tried to sign him before. Would be smart since we probably need 2 midfielders with all the expected departures. Would Laimer still be of interest?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No.}

27 Nov 2021 11:05:23
The EPL is probably the strongest league in the world right now, and I don't see how other leagues in the near future will be able to challenge it.

Look at the managers that have been attracted to the EPL:

Pep, Klopp, Tuchel, Conte, Rangnick, Bielsa, Benitez, Rodgers, Potter and Hasenhuttl, along with young promising up and coming managers like Gerrard, Viera, Lage and Howe.

It's a competitive league and with the money available to sign the best players to play for the best managers it's not surprising to see more British clubs go further in European competitions.

There are no easy games now, and the level of competition means that we will see more and more tougher games against sides we would have traditionally think was an easy win.

That's why in my opinion it's vital that we've brought in someone like Rangnick now, we need to set the club structure and aim for excellence. In the coming years we won't be able to fudge it and still get top four.

27 Nov 2021 16:24:48
The EPL has the money Shappy.

The best players and managers will follow the money like the seagulls with the trawlers. I hope that the club is finally starting to realise that building a modern club structure is essential to competing in the new EPL era.

He's done wonders at Sporting taken them back to the top and has them playing great football.

He's very young for a manager (36 I think), so while he's one to keep an eye on for the future I don't think he's anywhere near ready for a club the size of ours.

Interim till end of the season and then new role as a senior technical consultant for 2 years.

Great news.
Finally someone with great footballing ideology.

25 Nov 2021 15:28:23
Quite annoyed that we are appointing someone who says “football and politics” shouldn’t mix - this was in reference to racism and taking stands against racism. Forget him being a good manager, if he’s not willing to help combat racism then We are appointing the wrong person. People above football. Not the other way round.

25 Nov 2021 15:44:42
Swyw, while the fight against racism is vitally important and obviously a bigger issue than any in football. The reality is that the moment you bring politics into football you create divides that cannot be easily bridged.

Football is supposed to be friendly rivalry, something fans from either side can banter eachother without any real malice. The moment politics enters the fray then harsh lines are drawn in the sand and matches are no longer about bragging rights but about placing one political idea above another. That's when football matches get nasty, that's when people get hurt.

Football can lead the fight against racism without taking on board political ideologies or movements.

Agree15 2Disagree

25 Nov 2021 15:39:59
GDS, I'm not sure about that. I think PSG just aren't prepared to let him go early.

However, if Rangnick will have a role within the club beyond his interim manager stay then I'd rather wait for someone like Pochettino or EtH than get them in now and not have a real footballing person have a say in the running of the club.

Agree12 2Disagree

25 Nov 2021 16:43:53
You have to say this is a hugely positive move by the club.

I know a lot of you lads don't like M. E. N. and Samuel Luckhurst but he said on yesterdays podcast its a matter of when not if Poch comes-UTD really are all in for Poch and he really wants it too. In meantime an interim has to come in and Rangnick was one of 3 we shortlisted. also one candidate arrived in Manchester this week for talks.

Agree3 2Disagree

25 Nov 2021 17:03:23
Luckhurst did a poll of who people wanted as the next manager, 34% wanted Poch, 59% wanted Ten Hag.

Great move by the club. Almost suggests we have a plan in place……….

Agree1 2Disagree

25 Nov 2021 18:45:23
Not really a plan, they sacked a guy and interviewed candidates interested in an interim position. Then hired who they think is the best of the available options. It just so happens that most fans agree with them this time.

No plan in place, but with Rangnick coming in that might be the start of one.

Agree5 2Disagree

25 Nov 2021 19:53:43
I like this if by consultant's means he consults Murtagh and Fletcher into doing what he thinks needs to be done to rebuild Utd and consults the board into appointing the correct manager.

Keep politics out of football. You don't have to bring racism into every single thing.

Azeem rafiq brings a case if racism against English cricket. It's then proven that azeem rafiq has engaged in some of the racist practice he is accusing his former team mates among others of.

Throws and allegation at Michael Vaughan and then the BBC essentially cancels him, over an allegation of racism from a person proven to themselves be a racist. You honestly could not make this crap up. In the case of racism it's guilty until proven innocent these days.

This is why you keep politics out of football

People should be allowed to have different opinions than yours without the threat of being labelled.

Agree9 1Disagree

26 Nov 2021 03:31:40

Keep politics out of football then you go on to tell a biased interpretation of azeem and the ongoing issues with the racist culture of British cricket. Someone having a racist or anti semitic tweet come to light doesn't just completely abolish the countless racist remarks and acts he's faced in his whole time as a pro cricketer. Specialy when the ex Eng cap Vaughan has been caught out more then once being a xenophobe racist in the past. Ppl like you are the real problem, will look for anything to brush passed racist slurs as just "banter". Get a grip and furthermore an EDUCATION.

26 Nov 2021 09:40:30
Cr92, very well said.

Back to the original topic, this is an exciting appointment and hopefully signals a new direction for the club, being receptive to a new way of thinking led by football technicians. Here’s hoping.

I’m almost thinking it’s better this way round rather than say a Poch coming in partway on a permanent deal, less pressure when he comes in with some momentum (hopefully) and a pre season to build and plan.

A run to the champs league semis would be nice for some excitement, but once again the absolute aim has become top 4 finish, which will now be very hard with the top 3 basically guaranteed.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Nov 2021 09:52:10
Cr92 firstly you know nothing about me, my colour or my creed so please don't be making assumptions about me, what I represent or my EDUCATION (does it make one more educated when one types it in caps or something.

Secondly would you mind explaining how my post and opinion is biased. By you saying 'ppl like you are the real problem' you've literally proven my point in the last line of previous post, ie people if anyone has a different opinion they are labelled. People like me, what exactly do you mean by that?

Thirdly you accuse me of brushing past racist slurs as just 'banter' yet you seem to dismiss Rafiqs racist slurs because he has had racist slurs used against him. How does that one work?

At no point did I say his racist tweet abolished the countless racist remarks that he may have faced his whole life. However have you ever heard that old saying, 'those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'

I want to try an exercise, replace 1 letter in racist, change it to rapist. If someone is in court accusing someone of rape and during proceedings it emerges that that person has raped someone, that does not dismiss the crime that has been committed, namely rape, however it does bring into question the character of the person making the accusation.
Now imagine that both the accusing party and the defendant are celebrities/ sports people, Is it fair that the defendant would be cancelled while the accusing party doesn't at least have their version of events queried.
In my view accusations of institutional racism are very different to accusations of casual racism used by an individual.
I don't see the justice in either circumstance but hey you continue to label 'people like me' and question my EDUCATION.
I prefer the world I live in than the one you do.
It is for precisely this reason that I think Politics should be kept out if football. That's my opinion, you're as entitled to yours as I am mine thank the lord.

Sorry to others on here for this statement but it has to be said. You have to call a spade a spade when you see it.

Agree4 1Disagree

26 Nov 2021 10:24:02
Rosspique, when you say "keep politics out of football" you're basically telling players to shut up and not talk about the racism they personally receive, or that they witness their friends and teammates receiving.

They have every right to bring attention to it, and try to change it. If you don't like it, stop watching it.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Nov 2021 10:38:17
Thorne I'm basically not saying that at all. But of course it's your right to put words in my mouth.

Look back at swyws post which predates mine. I'm not the one calling the ethics and character of ragnik into question who says if he won't combat racism to swyws standards then he isn't fit to be manager.

What utter tosh!

Again this in my opinion is why politics should be kept out of football.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 Nov 2021 10:49:31
I think there is some confusion between politics and social issues that are both present in society and football.

Politics are merely policies based on ideologies around solving a perceived issue within our society. How valid that issue may be or the political view point held by people creating these policies is what everyone debates.

Politics and football should never cross paths. One is vitally important to the running and direction of society the other is a hugely popular sport. The idea of aligning political ideologies with sport and particularly sport clubs is dangerous as sports clubs and those connected with sports clubs tend to get unquestioned support.

Political thought and ideologies by their very nature need to be constantly challenged and questioned, without it you get people supporting a corrupt politician simply because they are on "your side" of the political divide.

It's like defending a former player whose convicted of a crime because he played for your side, when you would never support someone else who committed the same crime.

The power of sport and the kind of loyalty it demands makes people move their moral compass inorder to fit the current narrative.

That's why connecting sports and politics is dangerous as it brings an unwavering support for something that you may not actually support at all.

That doesn't mean that things like racism that exist in football shouldn't be tackled by football. Of course the social issues that exist in our game should be addressed. But they need to be done by the people within our game in a way that fits the structure of our game. Football should not be adopting a political movement even one tied to what is considered a positive movement.

If you want a perfect example of why sport and politics should never mix have a read into the 1936 Berlin Olympic games. A perfect example of the dangers of normalising political ideologies through sport.

Steve Bruce seems to get some amount of abuse, Ogs got a lot online towards the end. You don't hear political points regarding this. Frank lampard and Wayne Rooney were called fat most of their professional lives.

What's the point in anyone not being racist if you're going to infer they are just because they think differently.

Anyways keep making everything about race, see how well it ends.

It's a strange world.
Funny it's the same people who were slandering Ole, calling him every name in the book and what any reasonable person would call bullying who seem to disagree with my point.
I'm terribly ok with not being in that company I have to say.
Is it just cause Ole is white you're allowed to do that.

Ideally, they shouldn't mix. But you could argue Apartheid would have lasted a lot longer without a ban on them playing against other countries.

Rosspique, I apologise, I should have checked the context of Rangnicks "politics and football should not mix" comment. It was NOT about racism, it was about Ozil's support for the Turkish president.

If it had been about racism I believe my comment would have been accurate. We've seen a lot of people criticising players taking the knee recently by saying politics should be kept out of football, and that IS basically saying players shouldn't protest racism as I said.

However, as that was not the case here, I was wrong.

Looks like it's Valverde for the interim managers job. Initial talks have been held.

Latest rumour is Carlos Queiroz.

New one every day until something gets sorted. Easiest way for websites to get clicks, like shooting fish in a barrel.

"The main gripe (behind his sacking from Barca) was with Valverde's style of play: pragmatic, overly cautious and extremely reliant on individual brilliance. "

Sounds very familiar to me?

At this stage I’d be happier with just keeping Carrick.

I can’t see this club not giving any external interim manager a three year contract by the end of the season.

And you can't see them giving Carrick a three year contract by the end of the season?

Carrick, Phelan and McKenna were as much part of the problem as OGS,
and yet incredibly they're still there having been given new contacts last month.

Talks about Rudy Garcia now.

It might turn out that OGS was the problem not Carrick, Phelan, and McKenna? I have no idea but let’s wait and see.
