Any rumours of any of young U-23s players going to be promoted full-time to the First Team (Chong, Gomes, Anderson) this year? Any of the young First Team players expected to feature more regularly in EPL matches this year (Fosu-Mensah, Tuanzebe)?

Fosu-Mensah hasn't got a sniff for me I expect him to leave.

If lukaku leaves and we don't sign a striker or right winger then greenwood will surely have a lot of chances to prove himself.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2019 14:06:33
Greenwood is too young. We need a proven goals order as Martial and Rashford alone won't score enough goals.

Agree2 2Disagree

Your never “to young”. If you have the ability and a positive mental attitude. Age doesn’t matter.

Hes a kid WRD. still in school isn't he?

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2019 20:28:16
He's 17, soon to turn 18. The same age Ryan Giggs was playing regularly for us, and nearly a year older then Rooney was playing regularly for Everton.

That doesn't mean he is ready to play on a regular basis, but giving him a few games and seeing how he does is fair enough. With young players it's vital that you manage them very carefully, their enthusiasm often rules their head and they will gladly play when they need to rest. Both physically and mentally. But there are many examples of players Greenwoods age playing regularly. So I wouldn't rule it out.

Agree1 1Disagree

I would think aching is a possibility to get some playing time. Depending if/ who we sign for the right wing.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2019 06:46:03
And how often do those type of players come along shappy? You have to be incredibly careful with kids entering into the professional game. If rushed, it can have detrimental effects.

I see Greenwoods name being mentioned all over the place. Just leave him alone. If he gets a couple of games, good for him, if not, then great. he's got so much time.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 16:46:15
I'm still being told that the plan is to extend pogba.

And as before to buy a CB we need to offload 2 CB first.

Most recently added that a striker won't be purchased even if lukaku is sold.

How reliable this is I do not know but they did get the medical of Daniel James accurate.

If we sell lukaku and don't buy a goal scorer we are screwed.

My friend used to play for United and still speaks to a couple of there’s players and been told we will make 5 signings possibly 6
Wan bissaka
Umtiti
Bruno Fernandes
Bale
Dybala/ icardi
And oblak If sea gea goes.

No idea why.

21 Jun 2019 23:08:10
Hope we do get 5 more but personally I would only take 2 from that list.

AWB and Fernandes i would take.

Would prefer KK or Dias to Umtiti and think we need another dm/ cm too. Ndombele would be my choice.

Icardi has too much baggage, bale would cost too much just in wages unless we sell Sanchez and Pogba even on loan, and Dybala still undecided on. Quality player on his day but would he have his heart in it, or be another dimaria.

But this would leave us still needing a RW .

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 23:18:17
Untitty is as injury prone as bailly.


Top on his day tho if he can stay fit.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 02:58:57
We won't touch bale with his wages and injury record! But Woodward is in charge.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 10:13:29
OGS wanted the signings in for the tour and again it looks like UTD are dragging their feet and not acting quick enough, another poor build up and slow start.

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Jun 2019 10:35:08
I think the fans are being slightly tough on the club at the moment in terms of signings.

The club is in an awkward position where we have a bloated squad and an almost maxed out wage bill.

Meaning the club need to ensure they will move players off the wage bill and to make space in the squad.

As many as 10 first team players need to leave this summer (Valencia, Damian, Rojo, Herrera, Jones, Bailly, Sanchez, Pogba, DDG and Lukaku) with question marks over the heads of Smalling, Young, TFM, Andreas Pereira, Grant, Martial and Matic. All of which will likely stay at least another year.

At the moment only Herrera and Valencia have definitely gone (their contacts aren't up until July) .

So signing more players and increasing the wage bill backs the club into a corner over selling players.

Without a shadow of a doubt this is the most important summer window for us in the EPL era, and it will also be the hardest.

Yes ideally we would want the right players in and the right players our before the preseason tour. But if we have the right ones in and the right ones out by the the start of the season it will still have been a fantastic summer.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 12:21:41
Think united need to sell players before bring so many in: obviously financial reasons but also a bloated squad that is getting stagnant - Why should players even want to come to us in the state we’re in, unless they’re prepared to commit to the long term plan? Only a few obvious spaces in the first team and a really unhealthy atmosphere at the club with reported unrest in the dressing room etc

Someone needs to be really brave and sweep out lots of the short term failures and really start planning got the life g term, even if it’ll take a few seasons.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 16:50:07
The new financial year start 1st july so they will get the light weight signing over the line and heavy wage bill after the first, but can be signed before the end of the month.
If that makes sense.

{Ed002's Note - Not at all. Maybe you should ignore the money.}

A mate of mine in Italy mentioned recently that Icardi is trouble. He said imagine Sanchez attitude x 3. Just thought you should know.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2019 12:41:12
Didn't Martial sign a long contract like a couple of months ago and stories came out after his discipline is " questioned" after a stop start couple of months with injury?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 13:47:47
Hi can one of the Ed's please answer
Have the links with KK gone or is there still a chance we might sign him? Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) ironically a Mourinho favourite and very, very expensive, so unlikely right now, particularly with discussions with another club resulting in Napoli saying he is not for sale - but that won't end the interest of a number of sides. I would not expect a move to MU.}

21 Jun 2019 14:23:13
I don't see the club buying another centre back as i don't think they will be able to shift rojo or bailly as jones and smalling seem to be trusted by ole for some strange reason.

There is no point having 6 established senior centre backs in the squad especially if we are not going to play 3 at the back regularly.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 14:42:56
I would inclined to give Bailly another season . He's still young for a centre back and he showed enough the season before last to suggest that with an injury free run he could still improve into a good option at centre back, whereas Jones, Rojo and Smalling are what they are at this stage .

Agree6 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 15:31:00
Jones a d Smalling have more than enough chances. Its beggars belief that they are still here.
As for Rojo, we've got Woodward to lame for tieing him down to a new contract on big wages.

Agree5 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 15:45:13
ED02 - do you happen to know if any discussions with clubs/ agents for the cab targets you mentioned previously have got any closer to conclusion one way or the other? Looks like KK is off the menu now : (.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to try and give blow-by-blow updates.}

21 Jun 2019 15:52:55
Ok ED02 - thanks

Have a good weekend.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

21 Jun 2019 19:33:00
Thank you for your reply Ed002 was hoping we'd sign him it's a cb like kk we need badly I think even de ligt wouldn't do the job required at ot imo.

For those of you calling for United to bring in James Maddison, Football consultant (whatever that is) Ian McGarry, has reported that James Maddison has instructed his agent to set up a face to face meeting with OGS.

Could be interesting.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

21 Jun 2019 07:58:17
Could be bs.
Many journos use United for getting visibility.
If it is true, JM would be a fantastic signing.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 09:25:07
He would need permission to do this otherwise it’s tapping up? Ed002, is that right?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, without the permission of Leicester City that is tapping up.}

21 Jun 2019 11:28:02
Is there actual interest, i'd presume he'd cost 70m+ in this this market.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jun 2019 11:50:48
Maddison would be very high on my wanted list. Would love to see us sign him.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2019 08:06:10
In that case would he same apply to Pogba-Juventus if the report is true that Pogba has been in contact with Sarri?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The club cannot meet and negotiate directly with the player.}

23 Jun 2019 12:43:05
If anything he s tapping us up.

21 Jun 2019 01:43:17
It is now being reported that three clubs are currently bidding for Ndombele. Spurs, Juventus and United.

Another youngster’s name being linked with United: David Brooks

So, is Ole trying to emulate Class of 92? Fergie’s Fledglings?

If so, what name will they take in the media?

Solskaer’s Starlings?

Gunnar’s Groupies?

Ole Gunner’s Runners?

Solskjaer’s Sproutlings?

Have to be better than Pogba’s Ego.

What does everybody think about rumours about David Brooks.

Believable2 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - David Brooks (AM) Bournemouth don't wish to sell and have told two sides who have asked about availability "upwards of £50M". If Mata stays he is not needed this coming season and money can be spent where it matters most.}

20 Jun 2019 11:34:14
Agree with Ed on that one.

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 12:12:11
It would be money better spent on an CB.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 12:29:17
I agree that money would be better spent elsewhere at the moment but he had a good season last year and if he keeps performing like that will prob cost a lot more in the future.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Sure - Manchester United could simply start stockpiling £50M players who have had a good season.}

20 Jun 2019 14:13:39
Dont see where he fits in a 4-3-3 system, would probably end up shoehorned on the right hand side and suffer the same problems that mata has had their.

Much better off targeting a right winger who excels in 1 vs 1 situations like costa or zaha. Especially if we are looking to sign wan bissaka who still has to develop going forwards.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Jun 2019 15:03:02
I wouldn't want Costa. Bad attitude. Not convinced either with Zaha.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:25:50
Do we have no talented wingers coming through the youth set up? I also hear Bale is up for grabs.

Agree0 3Disagree

20 Jun 2019 17:19:02
Cutting Ed 002 😭. Seriously though keep up the sarcasm I love it. Thanks for making smile.

Agree1 1Disagree

19 Jun 2019 22:45:54
Are we under pressure with wages under FIFA rules, do we need to sell some high earners before we can sign certain players? I assume the worry is we buy 4/ 5 players and then can't move on Lukaku, Pogba and Sanchez etc for a decent price.

Believable0 1Unbelievable

20 Jun 2019 15:40:31
We have pretty much maxed out our wage budget under FFP. Meaning if we increase it too much this summer we will fall foul to sanctions. Such as a fine or a ban from European competition.

The issue is that we might have to settle some contacts to get those players off the books. That would eat into an already stretched wage budget.

So we will need to sell some big earners if we want to bring in more big earners. The problem is we have some fairly average players on big wages, meaning they are hard to get off the wage bill.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 17:02:18
can we get a source to this rumor please?

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jun 2019 18:16:02
Nope, that's not how rumours work. Once you have a verified source it is no longer a rumour but a fact.

i.e. I heard a rumour the Earth orbits the sun. Not a rumour but a fact.

However, I heard that Ed007 secretly sleeps in Rangers pyjamas. Rumour until someone is brave enough to venture into his bedroom at night. 😂.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed033's Note - I heard a rumour that the Blue Marble is not a true representation of the Earth. :)
