Hey Ed's

Bit of different topic but what do you think will happen with Martial?

I heard from an ex pro the club would like to replace him. I'm guessing with Haaland but I am not sure who would pay £50M+ for him.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst there is interest in Haarland it would not be a good move at this time. I am not aware of a plan to replace AM with him. Right now the club will look to add a striker in January - it is unrelated to AM.}

27 Nov 2019 18:54:11
Cool thanks.

27 Nov 2019 19:38:43
Have you covered who those targets are Ed? Forgive me if so.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

27 Nov 2019 21:14:51
Cool I’ll rtp.

30 Nov 2019 10:37:27
I think we should try Martial in the 10 position if we buy another striker. Parrera, Lingard amd Mata are not going to score enough goals.

26 Nov 2019 21:11:12
According to one of Alan Brazil sources. Pogba will never play for Manchester United again. Apparently Pogba went on french media to try and deny faking an injury.
Anyone heard this?

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt he has "went oin French media" whatever that means and said such a thing. He wants to leave - I am sick of explaining that.}

May as well sell up. Top 4 won’t happen, he wants out, move on. Long way back for Utd I fear.

27 Nov 2019 10:03:28
Eric- agree top 4 is far off but never impossible and also we as a team have a long rebuild pRoject, but re pogba: results without him are no worse than when he played the last 4 months of last season. As ed has repeatedly said he wants out, his agent will probably burst a blood vessel trying to engineer a move and if we get the right money, it could be reinvested into getting at least 2 positive replacement players. I see this as a positive with the prospect of matic moving on, smalling gettoing us a fee andyoung hopefully put out to grass in the summer.

27 Nov 2019 12:26:29
I checked the French media and there's nothing to suggest he spoke to anyone. Cadena Cope, a Spanish outlet, has claimed that several Man Utd players believe the injury is fake and that it is only to force a move to Real Madrid. Several French outlets picked up on the story, nothing more, the most prominent being goal. com.

27 Nov 2019 14:19:46
Pogba doesn't want to be here and if he wants to go to Real Madrid he will likely have to join in January. The big push for Pogba in Madrid is from Zidane, who himself is on dodgy ground and might not see out the season. If Zidane leaves before next summer then so does Pogba's best chance of joining Real Madrid.

So I can see him trying to force through a deal in January.

27 Nov 2019 14:50:38

You could actually argue that results are better without him, especially in the last 6 games. If we had sold in the summer and replaced with 2 good midfielders we would be in a much stronger position now that’s for sure. Hopefully that is what happens either in January or this summer and we can have a team of players who want to fight for the shirt.

27 Nov 2019 16:06:32
Let him go, let him go. I never liked him anyway. No swaps though.

27 Nov 2019 19:40:50
Agree with the above comments. No point keeping a player who wants to be elsewhere. He should have stayed in Italy at a very good Juve side in hindsight. Won’t be surprised if he goes back (if they have the cash or players to swap)

28 Nov 2019 15:41:11
GDS2 - looking at the last six games, i agree with you mate.

28 Nov 2019 19:42:43
Its tough to get the cash without them having makeweights.
To be honest if we got any midfielder from juve or madrid and cash they will be better than fred and andreas
Mctom needs some experience and quality around him so he can keep improving.

26 Nov 2019 22:57:50
Aubydingdong to Utd?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2019 04:25:36
You mean Aubameyang?
That's the last thing Arsenal would do lol.

27 Nov 2019 10:07:29
Where did we get Van Persie from.?

27 Nov 2019 10:22:57
rumours today that real madrid and barcelona both interested in him.

27 Nov 2019 10:34:51
Yeah they don't sell their best players.

27 Nov 2019 16:32:59
If he won't sign I'd stick a bid in.

We need some elite level mature players through the spine of the team.

AM9 = not good enough imo.

25 Nov 2019 22:40:59
Ed was arguing in the stands with David gill and Mr Fergie.

There have been rumblings that there is a lot of the hierarchy at loggerheads over the solskjaer appointment.

Apparently it is Mr Ferguson keeping ole and Mike in there jobs and time is running out.

Ed has apparently recognized his mistake in appointing ole and wants to change the manager.

How reliable this info is I don't know but it is what I have been told.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Nov 2019 22:46:29
The great man himself would struggle to get a tune out of this lot.

Ultimately wether Ed does recruitment or not he's the top boss and the one who's mismanagement has led to this.

26 Nov 2019 00:40:03
Sorry but I disagree Utd Road. I think Fergie in his prime would havs had no trouble making sure the current squad played with passion and commitment from the first whistle not just from the 70th minute and he would not consistently make mistakes like Ole did on Sunday by ceding midfield to the opposition. Secondly I am pretty sure he would have signed top midfielder in the past summer transfer window as this is our weakest area and has been for years.

26 Nov 2019 02:36:22
Salford, you do remember the years we went when Fergy decided not to buy a midfielder? He also played many mat he's with 2 in midfield against 3. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.

26 Nov 2019 04:36:00
Yes Dodgy,
Scholes even had to come out of retirement to add numbers in midfield lol :)

26 Nov 2019 11:22:31
Were they actually arguing or is this yet another ploy from the media to stir things up again.

I doubt that those three would have an argument in public.

26 Nov 2019 11:25:08
Salford, it's Woodward's job to sign players, not Ole's, so the failure to sign a midfielder is on him.

SAF at his peak might have got better out of this squad, but SAF in his first 10 years at Utd wouldn't have done any better. SAF was given time and allowed to learn and grow, if we want to ever have another manager build that kind of long term success and legacy like SAF, we need to give managers time and support, not keep looking for instant results. More importantly, we need someone competant in charge of signings etc.

26 Nov 2019 12:04:37
the difference is fergie was already a top manager before coming to utd after what he achieved with aberdeen in scotland and europe.

26 Nov 2019 13:04:32
Ogs is not a very good football manager. His record proves that.

26 Nov 2019 16:10:27
OGS is beloved by United fans for his service as a PLAYER not a manager. People need to be realistic in the fact that OGS isn't the manager to take this club forward, his managerial experience wasn't there to begin with, he and the team had the new manager fever which brought great initial results but as soon as he was offered the job it went downhill.

I want OGS to succeed as much as anyone but its just not going to happen. The club will do nothing but regret getting Poch or Allegri whilst they're available. Give Poch the backing he deserves and he will flourish.

26 Nov 2019 18:06:00
How will he flourish? Questionable transfer record. Can't handle pressure. I don't think he's tactically that great compared to others.

26 Nov 2019 22:02:28
Guys yes Fergie had time to mould a team but he also had to build a new infrastructure from the academy right up. Ole has not had to do that. Rashford and Greenwood etc are part of Fwrgies legacy. The fact that Ole pucks young players from the Academy teams is also because of the influence Fergie had on him. Yes it is relatively early days to judge Ole but his managerial background doesn't bear comparison to Fwrgies. Yes it is Woodwards job to get the players the manager wants but it's Oles job to coach the players, hi e the team a definable shape and way of playing. It is Oles job not to wait until we are two down against Sheffield Utd who are not worldbeaters and then in desperation go all out attack and get lucky. Honestly which of the top four teams in the Premier leagues of England Spain Italy or Germany would take Ole of he was sacked. We all know the answer. Not one would. That tells you all you need to know.

27 Nov 2019 14:52:06

So when he does something right he gets lucky but when he does something wrong he’s useless? Am I right?

27 Nov 2019 23:05:24
No GDS it's not like that. As I said he gambled because he got the system we were playing wrong and got lucky. More importantly we should NEVER be two down and playing so poorly to a team like Sheffield Utd. That is largely due to his poor management.

24 Nov 2019 19:40:29
I think poch will be getting a call after that match.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Nov 2019 20:05:11
Id be very shocked if there's much appetite to move ole on. But if its building the irony if it happens after the spurs game.

24 Nov 2019 20:33:39
The wolves are out again, suprise suprise. Granted it was a pretty terrible performance but you have to have a look at the players Ole had to choose from. Look at the 3 goal scorers and their ages, the fighting spirit shown by such a young group missing so many key men. Ask yourself would a Pochettino or Allegri have done any better with a midfield of Fred and Pereira?

24 Nov 2019 20:57:30
the youngsters are playing well. e picks the team so why not try the other young ones instead of them two that s oles choice.

24 Nov 2019 21:17:30
Nothing will change until the club gets its act together behind the scenes. Run by amateurs. Yep, ole may not be the man, poch or someone might get us an extra win or two, but let’s be real this squad is so far off where it needs to be for us to even think about competing.
I will also say that spell in the second half shows that in about 3 years we will have a few top players on our hands if they continue to progress.

25 Nov 2019 05:33:57
Yeah Caolan.
A midfield of Fred and Andreas - any team would struggle.
There was little to no supply to the forwards in the first half.

25 Nov 2019 09:01:59
TRD don’t forget the movement of the forwards were dreadful. Mason has the best movement of the lot imo and that was seen by his goal. This team shows glimpses and for 15 mins it was incredible. But it needs so much work to fix it, and I don’t have the confidence that it will be done.

25 Nov 2019 09:11:24
The number of times we lost posession in first half from midfield was appaling.

25 Nov 2019 21:35:11
If we sold Pogba and got a number 10 like Maddison or Fernandes and a holding midfielder like Ndidi or Kante, would the rest of the first team be OK?

26 Nov 2019 04:38:56
Yes CSF. That would be immense.
A midfield of Maddison, McTominay, Kante (impossible though) will easily dominate midfield.
By controlling the midfield, the team can be on the front foot always.

26 Nov 2019 13:22:11
Yes CSFThat would be a way better midfield than the one we currently have, Fred's commitment can't be questioned but sadly he isn't good enough and don't let me start on Pereira, i don't even think he is a championship player let alone a manchester united one. We need a very good holding midfielders and a good creative, attacking one too, Maddison or Fernandes would be great in that position.

23 Nov 2019 09:23:22
Hi Eds

I've been told united are trying to sign florentino luis from Benfica.

Wonder if you have an update regarding his future?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - No, there are other DM players which are more likely. He was previousl;y of interest to JM of course.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2019 11:49:04
Ed002, Which other DM's are targets?

{Ed002's Note - Eric Dier (DM) bereft of any ideas Manchester United have returned to another Mourinho target and made an enquiry to a third party about whether or not he would be open to a move as a replacement for Nemanja Matic. Now interest from another side and won't happen.
Declan Rice (DM) could also look to him again but very unlikely.
Kalvin Phillips (CM) may have been watched but I would not expect anything to come of it
Emre Can (DM) scraping the barrel but Juventus will offer Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can with some cash for Paul Pogba and Tahith Chong in January.}

24 Nov 2019 13:00:52
ED002, Sounds like United have all the gear and no idea.

24 Nov 2019 13:48:10
Thanks Ed002.

24 Nov 2019 20:31:34
so basically from bad to worse.

25 Nov 2019 09:54:57
Will believe it when I see it as far as what Juventus offer.

Not a chance the club will dramatically weaken itself to those proportions.

25 Nov 2019 18:59:33
Utd Road: erm. it would appear that that is exactly what we have being doing all the way back to when Ronaldo left.

22 Nov 2019 22:25:00
Hi ed002 when you say he will have an option to leave in January do you mean a club will make a bid?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Ken. I thought it was pretty clear.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2019 04:13:54
Hope we have a replacement lined up Ed.
There were strong rumors about SMS towards the end of previous window.

23 Nov 2019 07:51:13
Guessing you’re talking about Pogba? Sorry, some thread/ ed2 comments maybe missing.

22 Nov 2019 04:40:47
Hello Eds, Just a short question: If you have any info can you elaborate on the situation regarding Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong.


{Ed002's Note - Tahith Chong (RW) one for the future - MU don't want to sell but the player has concerns about having no mapped out future and MUs efforts to buy themselves back in to contention in the summer of 2019 - a tentative approach from Bayern Munich was turned away. BM may decide to look to TC again in 2020 as one potential long term replacement for Arjen Robben. Juventus have made his representatives aware of their interest in the player as well.

As for Angel Gomes (AM) interest has been shown by Borussia Dortmund and the player would be open to a move to London if there was a guarantee of playing time.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2019 12:02:34
Sounds like both lads are considering their options and may well look for moves away. Dortmund would be a good move for Gomes.

22 Nov 2019 12:41:02
They have talent but they need to realise not every player is a Rooneyor a mbappe and a first regular at that age.

What they need is a loan for regular game time and reassess then.

22 Nov 2019 13:29:14
From the sounds of it both would be happy if they had some sort of clear pathway mapped out for their progression.

Something more like, we are going to work on these areas of your game to enable to compete for a place in the first team, you'll be given chances in the cup games, and maybe depending on training ground performances on the bench for league games. In January you'll be loaned out to (x, y and z) for the rest of the season to gain regular football. Following that we will reassess where you are over the summer with maybe another loan next season or a run in the first team.

Or something like that. Young players need attainable targets, and a clear path laid out in front of them.

22 Nov 2019 16:21:53
True. So that's down to the manager and the head of youth development. But we don't know if this has been discussed.

22 Nov 2019 20:11:27
Mort, and Shappy.
Young players need expert guidance. As Shappy says the club can provide excellent career guidance. But they are often as the mercy of unscrupulous agents or dumbass family members who are chasing the money and not playing the long game.
That plus the prospect of high level football on the continent from clubs that than make 30 / 100m back in 2 or 3 years if the player excels like sancho.
Too often there appears to be no parental guidance either.
Mort you are bang on. Every club has at least 60 players on the clubs books between the ages of 16 and 20. How many teenagers start every week in the epl? The %percentage is minute. They are a rarity in reality.
Teenagers in football need to be patient and be well advised and guided. Too many are not.

22 Nov 2019 22:34:34
Gomes has a massive decision to make. From what I’m told he and his family both believe he should be a regular and on more money etc. Like I said before I’ve been told this by someone I’ve chatted too who follows the academy and knows a few of the players.

On Chong, there’s a player in him, but he needs toughened up a bit. I would suggest that ramanzani is looking a better player at this moment in time and Dylan Levitt is looking top notch.

I wonder if the minutes mason is getting is making them rethink their futures.

23 Nov 2019 10:22:23
Hi Ed, is there perhaps a specific London club which has shown an interest in taking Gomes?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

23 Nov 2019 14:21:42
Ah okay, thank you for the reply, Ed002. Enjoy your weekend!
