I've been told that the scouting department have been looking at Donyell Malen.

How true I don't know but this is a rumour site so enjoy.

Who is Donnell Malen.

20 Nov 2019 10:38:28
He's an ex-Arsenal youth player currently doing well with PSV in the Netherlands. Good young player, not sure if he is quite what we need at the moment. Still young and raw, while we need someone ready to challenge/ rotate with Martial.

19 Nov 2019 14:07:07
Hi Ed002, do you know which attacking targets we are showing interest in at the moment?

{Ed002's Note - It is as I have previously said.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2019 13:08:19
Hi Ed's, is there anything in the rumours linking us to Danny Loader?


{Ed002's Note - He has been looked at by a number of PL clubs and Wolves still want him - but he would certainly not be ready for the first team for most PL sides.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers Ed.

Hi ed002, how's things?

Do we still hold interest in Bruno Fernandes? Seemed like a weird turn of events in the summer regarding him. We put in an insulting offer for the player and then never went back?

We obviously targeted a player for the number 10 role since we spent time chasing Dybala and Eriksson. It's very peculiar that we never revisted Bruno as he would definitely improve our starting 11.

Here's hoping that ship hasn't sailed.

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt Manchester United will be looking at the player again after screwing around in the summer. There is interest from elsewhere and Sporting have financial difficulties - and they may reluctantly sell.}

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Nov 2019 15:21:12
Ed any interest in Bale from United?

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains unchanged aside from the loan option that has likely gone. RM will try to include Bale in a deal for Pogba - and if his price fits what MU value him at then something can be done.}

17 Nov 2019 16:11:41
That's a shame. He's exactly what we need and he is available.

Thanks ed. Enjoy your Sunday night.

18 Nov 2019 12:07:24
Bale? You'd have thought we would have learned our lesson after Sanchez.

18 Nov 2019 11:20:27
Okay thanks ed.

16 Nov 2019 20:56:11

Do you have any updates on Steven Bergwijn, do utd have any interest?

I've watched him many times and really think he would fit in at utd

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Steven Bergwijn (LW/RW/F) has been watched by MU but there is interest from elsewhere including Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Spus, Milan and Napoli - several of these sides are able to offer CL football which has always been an important point for the player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2019 09:52:05
Thanks Ed, Best hope is to win the Europa then.

Do you think he would cut it in England?

{Ed002's Note - Spurs have put a lot of effort in to scouting him and there was a push from their chief scout to add him to the squad but it never happened. So I would think so.}

17 Nov 2019 11:11:12
Definitely a player we should be looking at. Would add strength, depth and quality to our forward line.

15 Nov 2019 21:32:19
Sancho for me is very overrated, yes he does well for Dortmund but when I watch him on the international stage I don't think he would be suited to the premier league.

Now I'm not saying he can't improve but I really do hope united look past him to other targets.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst there is interest from Manchester United the player, by the summer, may not be interested in dropping down a level to join, so Manchester United can indeed look elsewhere.}

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Nov 2019 21:42:29
Compare him to all the ‘youngsters’ at United. He’s head and shoulders above the likes of Chong and Gomes. He’s the same age as Chong who some fans are saying should be in our first team. Have you watched him consistently in the Bundeliga? He really could be world class.

15 Nov 2019 23:44:20
As bad as we are right now. I would rather the club focus on players who don't view us as a step down due to the current lack of champions league football. That way we attract persons who genuinely want to join and help the club return to its former glory. No unnecessary large wages to entice a player to join.

16 Nov 2019 07:40:55
If players are choosing a club based on the cup they are in then they are welcome to go where they wish. If Sanchez thinks United is a step down from Dortmund then his head needs a wobble.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe “Sanchez” realises it is a club run by amateurs with a coach who is not up to the job?}

16 Nov 2019 09:08:03
Dani Olmo wouldn't be a bad alternative if we can't get Sancho.

16 Nov 2019 10:18:15
Ed002 is completely right.

Sancho is playing for a CL club, and will have the pick of top EPL and European sides in the summer.

I think some of our supporters need to check their arrogance at the door and realise that top class players will be hesitant to join us. Since SAF retired we have used high wages to entice players, but this has resulted in uncommitted players here only for the cash.

Manchester isn’t the most exiting place for a young lad to live, and we’re still a far way off being able to compete for the biggest trophies. Players that want to advance their careers will look at us over the last number of seasons, and rightly be unconvinced that we’re a good move for their career.

16 Nov 2019 11:13:10
I’m not arrogant Danny. Whatever our current travails, we pay well, we remain one of the biggest names, we will still attract players. There have always been players who didn’t want to play for us, I’m just getting bored of the ‘step down’ jibe.

16 Nov 2019 11:37:35
We must accept that at the moment we are in a lull still reeling from the retirement of one of the greatest football managers that ever lived.

Sancho as of the of world's leading young players will no doubt have his choice of Clubs. He will ultimately make the best choice for him based on his career.

There appears to have been a change of emphasis and recruitment strategy at the Club over the past few months. I sincerely hope that Ole can lead our new and exciting young team back towards the top. On occasions when the likes of Rashford, Martial, James and Pogba click we play the most exciting, thrilling brand of football we've seen in years. The next step is for them to perform more consistently and our recruitment in January and over the summer will be critical to Ole's chances of success.

16 Nov 2019 12:23:17
AJH, it may not be a step down from Dortmund, but it is certainly a step down from the other clubs that will show interest. Unless you are a United fan, there are better career moves for a young talented player. The negatives of the club far outweigh the positives at the moment. We have owners that see no difference in 4th than 1st. We have a structure that seems to get the majority of decisons wrong. A manager who is like a toddler learning to walk, a few nice steps forward and then he falls on his arse and rubbishs himself.

I'm very happy with the 3 signings this summer. A few more in that vein and a season or two of progressing up the table and we may be able to get the likes of Sancho to join. It's telling that Dybala and Eriksson both turned us down. We're not the draw we used to be but that's alright. Our transfer strategy over the last 5 years wasn't working. We should cut our cloth accordingly and look for hungry players and we'll get there. It's time for our army of scouts to earn their crust.

16 Nov 2019 12:32:39
Have you ever actually been to Dortmund? Not exactly the cultural centre of Europe either.

If these young lads are basing on it where to live, they’d all be fighting to play for London, Paris, Amsterdam or Barcelona based clubs.

16 Nov 2019 12:37:41
United are one of the biggest attractions in world football, it's as simple as that. Some may opt for a Barcelona or Real as they always have done and yes money is everywhere nowadays but United will always be a big draw no matter what.

16 Nov 2019 13:15:03
He should try a night out in Scunthorpe. It's all rock and roll.

16 Nov 2019 15:07:14
Bastian Schweinsteiger German legend came here and did nothing
Shinji Kagawa Bundesliga player of the season, came here and did nothing
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Bundesliga player of the year, came here and did nothing.
There's a few gems in their league but they generally don't let them go.
I think we still need a centre back more importantly, Koulibaly all out for me.

16 Nov 2019 19:25:49
Good potential really good. Like hudson odoi like rash who imo is ahead of both. In a couple of years time perhaps foden abraham mount gomes and garner can join that group.
All have a lot of talent. They need to make good decisions and have a bit of luck.

16 Nov 2019 22:09:02
If no one else is prepared to pay as much for Sancho as we are then we stand a chance of signing him.

However, if he has the choice is signing for us or for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus or PSG then it's likely he will go elsewhere, and if we are honest who could blame him at the moment?

The club doesn't have a clear plan and is several years away from competing at the top level at least.

17 Nov 2019 10:18:08
I think there are much more important areas to address than right wing or centreback. The back four looks workable for me until summer. Central mid is where the problems are. It’s the weakest selection of options that I can recall in a United squad for decades. A creative player in the mould of (for example) Eriksen, Fernandes or Maddison has to be the priority for me with a dynamic defensive midfielder not far behind. I would take any of Leicester’s midfielders in a heartbeat. Saying that these players won’t be available in January. Maybe a loan option for the remainder of the season, in the way Ibra was able to come in? These players are out there. Cebellos looks like one of Arsenal’s best players at the moment, on loan from Real.

17 Nov 2019 10:46:57
Mad Hatter, I'm from Scunthorpe lol.

17 Nov 2019 11:09:12
Haha, Herbie, small world.

19 Nov 2019 12:12:02
difference is he would walk into our starting 11,

he wouldn't be sure of starting at other clubs linked with him.

15 Nov 2019 19:19:09
Hi Ed,

I was just wondering if you've heard about our interest in Erling Haaland and whether or not it's concrete, or is it just lazy speculation in the media due to the Norwegian connection with OGS.



{Ed002's Note - Erling Haaland (S) There is significant interest in the player from a number of sides and there have been discussions with one interested side already (last Monday) and one other side that could be offered him regardless of a lack of interest right now. Manchester United are interested and OGS knows him, but it would be a big step up with no guarantee of a starting place.. The kid needs to consider any move carefully and not end up on the bench.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2019 19:54:42
I've not seen much of Haaland at all. Can anyone give a bit of a breakdown of his style of play?

15 Nov 2019 21:25:16
RJ, I can’t say I’ve seen much of him. But I’ve watched him in a few European games and you can see the guy just lives and breathes scoring goals. Physically he is very impressive for one so young. He seems a penalty box striker a bit like ruud.

{Ed002's Note - "Physically he is very impressive....". Tight buns? Each to their own.}

15 Nov 2019 21:25:33
Thank you ed 😂😂.

16 Nov 2019 09:45:50
An impressive physical specimen eh Caolan.

17 Nov 2019 16:14:58
The consensus seems to be that Rashford is too young to be the main striker for a club of United’s size to depend on. So why does Haaland help? He’s even younger and has been playing at a lower level. We need an experienced player in, if only on loan or for the short term.

19 Nov 2019 14:11:23
Rashford is not a central striker according to football experts 😁😁. Its not about age.

12 Nov 2019 22:31:47
Losing Mctominay is going to be tough for the few weeks he's out, the away trip to Sheffield will be a battle, so who will come in? Think Matic is still injured, does young Gardner get a game, it's a big ask for the you lad, our team is getting younger each week now. If Axel was fit would you play him infront of the back four or maybe revert back 3-5-3. We need another win to keep momentum going, a defeat and we are back to square one again.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Nov 2019 01:39:57
Sheff utd's formation is causing all sorts of problems to teams this year. Their wide CBs push really high and create overloads all through the game.

It would be a good game to use the 3412 or a 352 formation.

13 Nov 2019 04:24:34
Yeah it's a tough task to replace McTominay considering Pogba and Matic are not available.
We would probably go with Garner along with Fred in the middle.
Wild card option would be Lindelof.

13 Nov 2019 06:46:02
Drop pereira back and stick mata/ lingard/ gomes in the 10 position.

Or even go 4-4-2 with greenwood coming in.

13 Nov 2019 07:54:57
Jones began with Blackburn as a defensive midfielder. This is where he earned rave reviews and was touted as a future England captain, and Utd signed him. Lol.

13 Nov 2019 16:33:46
Pogba could be ready in time, who knows, his cast is now off.

{Ed025's Note - i think cast off would be the right course of action with him mate..

13 Nov 2019 23:48:04
Jones? 😂😂😂😂😂😂.

{Ed033's Note - Oh Miss Jones

14 Nov 2019 12:39:32
You'll have to remind me. Who is this Jones that you speak of?
