So there is this will he won't he thing going on in the media at the moment with regards to Odion Ighalo.

Yesterday many outlets saying an extension was close, today a few saying we have failed to reach an agreement.

It seems like there is a chance of a extension until January dependent on when the Chinese season starts, when he would be allowed to travel, what United are prepared to do/ offer.

If the club signs Ighalo until January what do people think will happen with looking at signing a striker this summer?

The club clearly needs another striker, Martial struggles with injuries, Rashford is much better playing wide and Greenwood hasn't got the experience yet to lead the line week in week out.

Signing Ighalo untill January solves that issue until then, but January is always a difficult window to buy in. Especially with the Euro's 6 months away at that point. Players playing well won't want to risk a move before an international tournament, those playing badly I can't imagine the club would be thrilled to sign.

So does the club extend Ighalo's loan until January AND sign another striker this summer. Giving us 4 strikers for what is often just one place in the starting line up.

It's a tricky one. I think that by the end of next season Greenwood will be pushing Martial for his first team place.

So do we go with Ighalo until January and then really give Greenwood his chance to shine?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - It is a tough decision. Ideally we would sign him until August and maybe push for Werner who has a very reasonable release clause. However, if he is not obtainable or if it hampers our ability to purchase Sancho/a right winger, then I would be happy to keep Ighalo until January and revisit the position then. See if Greenwood can step up}

Ed02 any further info you can provide based on the revelation made by Saul?

What are people’s thoughts on Hannibal Mejbri?

I just seen some videos of him and he looks very good. I know YT can make anyone look good but 15 mins of quality is impressive in a year.

He plays like Beckham but a bit quicker.

Looks an absolute prospect *****

I could see him as the long term Pogba replacement.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 May 2020 15:11:48
I posted quite a while back on Mejbri, looked a player in what I saw of him. Cost about £9m from Monaco from memory but what I saw was a bit and I stress a bit reminiscent of Ronaldinho style of player. Doesn’t mean he would attain that level but should be given a chance and perhaps even this season if for example we can’t get top 4 in the last couple of games or in the cup.

Club paid a tone of money he better be good. He looks good if any of the videos of him is anything to go by, hopefully he makes the first team next season.

Maybe he'll eat a few chunks off Shaw too.

Good one unruly

Sorry RM I missed that post.
The lad looks to have it all, good challenge on him and strong.

I’m really keen to see how he gets on.

Utd Road

Posted back at the beginning of the season about August/ September about him. Has that invention about him, one of those that can go either way but has real talent. When I saw him I was struck by the fact he didn’t play by numbers, there was a freestyle about him . He is getting to the age where we need to find out if he can translate it to first team games. The greats can and you see how they show its natural, much of it mental when they arrive on the pitch.

Not afraid to get stuck in either. Ed001 and I had a conversation about him and it seems he has his head screwed on too.

That consecutive games stat from Phil Neal is absolutely incredible. Considering the condition of the pitches, the tackles that were the norm and Liverpool were hoovering up trophies. He must have been made of different stuff.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I hadn't thought about it until I saw the period of time it covered. It will never happen again will it? Players get looked after so well, maybe too well.}

I can't imagine it been done at the top level. Players in the "red zone" get sent to Dubai for a rest.

He was probably in the boozer having a few pints on Friday night too.

I take it he wasn't a bad footballer either?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he was very good and a nice guy too. When we first split the sites up into individual club sites, we had a poster who pretended to be him. When I called him out about it, he refused point blank to admit he was not the real Phil Neal. The problem was, he was arguing the point while the real one was on a golf course with my uncle playing a round together. So I am sat on the phone reading out this guy's posts to them and they are cracking up laughing. The fake guy even sent me abusive emails after being blocked still claiming to be the real Phil Neal! It would have been nice if it was the real one, but he is an old guy and he had no idea the site even existed, let alone knew how to post on it from a mobile.}

30 May 2020 16:53:38
Hahahah that's wonderful. You'd want to have thick skin reading these pages as a footballer. Even though the majority are nice people we can get carried away.

Do you know of any players that frequented the sites as posters or in the shadows?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - not that frequented, I know of a few that have looked in from time to time. They don't want to get too involved in case any info comes out that they could get the blame for. That's why I could never get any to agree to do interviews or anything. Well other than a few who would do but want paying large fees!}

Great penalty taker too, didn’t blast it, stuck it in the corner having usually sent the keeper the wrong way.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - good point, that showed his technique as well as his strength mentally.}

31 May 2020 14:20:10
I have a new found respect for Phil Neal. That is a ridiculous stat, his physical and mental toughness must be off the chart.

Agree0 0Disagree

I can't be sure but i think Liverpool won the league one year around then only using 14 players.
Only allowed 1 sub power game back then too.

Hey Ed
Has there been any push back on neutral grounds?

It is a disadvantage and undermines the spirit of the league. For example Man Utd Sheff Utd is supposed to be at a neutral ground.

I’m surprised clubs have agreed.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If the clubs don't agree to the solution then the alternative is to end the season now. The police have identified 12 high risk games of which at least 6 or 7 will take place at a neutral venue.}

30 May 2020 20:26:23
I can see that for sure but don’t see it making that much of a difference. People will mix in groups regardless. Seems like a dumb idea altogether to come back.

I just don’t see how there can be any sporting integrity playing reverse legs in empty / neutral grounds. More so for those at the bottom.

EPL should draw a line under it as it is and let the scouse ask for title if they want it. Play out the FA cup and European games in August as a preseason.

Seems like the most logical and safest way to go on.
