There's a few reports doing the rounds regarding Lazio official in London to discuss Milinkovic-Savic.
Do any of the Ed's know if there's any truth to this?


{Ed002's Note - Tare has been in another city discussing the player with another club - I am not aware of him being in London to talk with MU.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 22:05:43
Thanks Ed002. Would that other city be Paris?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}



21 Mar 2018 20:06:59
Here's a question. If, and it's a very big if, Mourinho was to leave the club. Would anyone think of Zidane as the next coach of our team?
I take all the nonsense in the media with a pinch of salt when it comes to Pogba and Shaw falling out daily with Mourinho, but there is definitely something amiss at the moment. Hopefully it's Jose's tough love and the players pull their socks up and get on with the remainder of the season.

I do feel though that the board and senior figures will soon get tired of the Mourinho circus if results don't change.
That's where Zidane comes into it. There's a massive possibility he will lose his job at Real in the summer which is a shame as he's won the CL twice in his short managerial career. The most obvious option would be for him to join PSG but I would certainly take a gamble on him IF Jose were to go and Zidane became available.


1.) 21 Mar 2018 20:53:08
Zidane and scholes 👍👍👍 🤞👌👌👌.

2.) 21 Mar 2018 22:08:12
I'd really like this option. There are several French speaking players in the squad and I'm sure he'll quick be an inspiration to them. He seems like a decent enough guy too from the interviews I've seen.

3.) 21 Mar 2018 22:42:31
At least Zidane won't be afraid to 'butt heads' with the big boys in the team. A few ego's need reining in imo.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 12:34:04
Love Zidane as a player and would have been an honour to have him playing for united. But I’m not too sure about his managerial capabilities. I think his biggest strength actually appears to be man management of egos in that real squad, and keeping the players happy. He has a fantastic squad at his disposal. However, he does seem to know how to get the best out of the players so that is a positive. I have to disagree there beast on Zidane reining in egos. This is exactly what Jose is doing now and he is being criticised so what makes Zidane doing it any different? I’m not advocating what Jose does as I do not believe he is right for us. But isn’t it a bit ridiculous to want Zidane to butt head
s with the egos in the squad when Jose is doing the same but yet criticised for it?

5.) 22 Mar 2018 16:53:19
Park - it was a poor joke based on what was one of the most remarkable things witnessed during a game. World Cup Final 2006, Zidane 'Head Butting' Materazzi in the chest.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 17:30:34
Haha my mistake beastie didn’t notice that one.



30 Jan 2018 21:01:30
Daley Blind could be off to Roma. Class act if you ask me, just isn't quite at the level needed at United. He's the one Van Gaal signing I wanted to see workout.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:02:21
I like Blind excellent passer and can play in a variety of positions. Clever tactically too just his lack of pace that let's him down. Be sad to see him go.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:09:01
Sorry but I disagree, incredibly mediocre who just isn’t cut out for this league.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 22:23:58
Good pro always gives 100% will do well elsewhere and I'm not sure it's true as we don't have a replacement but regardless he is not a ideal fit for us or the epl in general due to his lack of pace.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 06:35:48
Anyone thinks Blind can replace Carrick? Appreciate opinions. Thanks 🙏.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 07:14:01
Blind has very good passing ability and seems to have a very good understanding of the game. However, I don't think he could replace Carrick.

Physically, Blind would struggle against teams that press high as he isn't quick enough not does he have the strength to hold people off. Carrick isn't the quickest but because of his awareness and ability to shield the ball is an excellent passing central midfielder.

If we have a good offer for Blind I'd say take it. We still have 5 CB's if he leaves and Shaw, Young, Darmian (doesn't look like he is leaving this window) and Rojo can all play left back. Next season we should have TFM back and he can fill a utility role in the squad.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 08:25:09
Thanks RJ for opinion. So if Blind can’t replace Carrick who then can we buy or any younger players?
Feel free to comment anyone. Thanks.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 10:47:57
Mediocre player. certainly not good enough for that central midfield area if we have aspirations of winning the Premiership and the champions League. I would be going for the Lazio midfielder Savic.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 12:51:55
Only a few players can replace Carrick 666. I think Weigl is perfect and would love us to sign him. Otherwise you have Jorginho and of course Kroos. Tielemens is a left field option always been impressed with him and also Dendoncker. I would prefer we went for an engine in midfield as I think it would compliment pogba and matic better. A Vidal/ Kante would be perfect. Or the other option is go for more creativity like city do with De Bruyne and silva. Milinkovic Savic or Thiago alacantara would be perfect. I think Milinkovic Savic is the one we must move heaven and earth for. Interesting to see what we do.



14 Jul 2017 19:11:12
Wesley Sneijder's been released by Galatasaray. Let the rumours commence.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:44:02
Exactly the type of player we need.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 22:03:48
6 years ago.



05 Jul 2017 10:43:25
Apparently Inter have rejected our recent bid of £40mil for Perisic.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 11:36:59
Time to walk away, good player but this deal is dragging on now and the cost is starting to go beyond what the player is worth.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:01:39
Unfortunately we are going to pay over the odds for any player because as ed002 has said teams see us as daft enough to pay these prices.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:08:44
We have set a precedents since SAF left for being stupid. Happening with Morata too - £80m is a joke and they've turned down £70m.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 12:23:00
Really fresh do you believe that?

5.) 05 Jul 2017 12:34:38
How do you mean Ken?

6.) 05 Jul 2017 13:20:57
What does it matter fresh? Don't worry about the money side. None of us have a clue about it. If that's the valuation, so be it.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 14:54:10
All prices quoted in the media are probably over inflated as it helps to sell papers or get hits. I doubt we are currently that high with our offer.

8.) 05 Jul 2017 14:57:02
It matters if it means we don't have enough for other players we need. I don't know if this is the case or not. If it doesn't affect other signings I couldn't care less what we pay. i'm assuming the owners know how much we can afford to spend.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 16:52:25
Not privvy to any info regarding madrid- man utd negotiations, but surely if they are playing hard ball they must realise they can get stung with big numbers if they go for DDG?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no relevance to what is being discussed with any other players.}

10.) 05 Jul 2017 17:29:42
This is crazy money for Morata.

11.) 05 Jul 2017 17:58:07
Your last line sums it up perfectly RWWD.

12.) 05 Jul 2017 17:59:10
I take it ed002 that real madrid have a valuation for the player and United have to match that or look for another target.

{Ed002's Note - OK if that is what you think.}

I've just donated to the charity Marcus Rashford is working with to ensure kids who rely on the free meals at school are still getting them in during these closures.
I really admire his charity work. It's a great cause people. It was my first thought when I heard of the school closures. For some little ones, school is there safe haven, the place they get fed and looked after. I know there are other people in need of help during these tough times but I think this is a great cause.


1.) 20 Mar 2020 12:14:07
Class, well done mate.



08 Mar 2020 08:18:39
I took my nephew to the ground last night so he could see the players boarding the coach ready for the match today.

Matic, Perreira, Tuanzebe, Ighalo and Mason Greenwood were different class. Loads of them spent a few minutes signing autographs and taking pictures but those 5 were excellent.

I was a bit surprised by McTominay and De Gea and Wan Bissaka. They didn't even acknowledge the crowd.


1.) 08 Mar 2020 11:54:28
I used to take my lad to carrington 10 years ago. Neville wouldn’t even look at you neither would scholes or Rooney but the foreign lads were different class. Up their own backsides some of em.



07 Feb 2020 15:00:39
What's everyone's thoughts on the Jack Grealish rumours in the media.
I think he'd be a great addition in the summer.
Ed001, I remember you commenting on him recently saying he wasn't a player who you thought could play in a top club. Do you still see him as such? His recent performances have been very good.


{Ed001's Note - I still haven't seen anything other than a player who takes too many touches and then dives but somehow gets given a free kick. Most of the time there is no challenge and he still gets the decision. I can't even watch Villa any more as I find it so frustrating that he is such a blatant cheat but gets away with it. I watched the first half of one of their games recently and he was not fouled once but racked up a ton of dangerous free kicks. I am not a fan in the slightest.

The lad has the ability, but not the brains. He needs to release the ball earlier. If he did, Villa would be safe.}

1.) 07 Feb 2020 15:21:31
Not a fan either, just a purple patch for him in PL this year. scoring just 13 odd goals in 3 seasons in championship shows his level.

2.) 07 Feb 2020 16:16:43
He's a tough player to peg. Clearly has tonnes of ability, but somehow doesn't make the most of it.

Maybe it's not having other players around him of a similar level, or maybe being the big fish in a small pond makes him look better than he is.

He needs a great coach who can get the penny to drop with him. If he can learn to use his talents in the right way for the team then he could be a top player, if not then he will always be a nearly man.

3.) 07 Feb 2020 19:07:49
Im not sure if would be able to cope with the pressure at United. Some wilt some thrive. Can he produce special moments every week and still be 8 outta 10 for the other 88 mins.
That's what's reqired.

4.) 07 Feb 2020 19:39:22
A good manager could take him to the next level.

5.) 07 Feb 2020 19:49:11
I think he’s looked better than what we have and has a bit of character.

Would have to always be the question is he the best you can buy and is he better than what you have.

6.) 07 Feb 2020 22:48:51
Tris, I think you are being overly harsh. I think he is the most fouled player in the EPL. He has huge quality but does seem to have something of a billy big boots attitude. The debate is whether he can step up at a big, club or would crumble, personally I think he would step up and be some player.

{Ed001's Note - he has won the most free kicks, but almost none are actually fouls. What he does is take far too many touches and play himself into trouble and dive. When refs finally wake up and realise he is cheating, those 'fouls' will dry up.}

7.) 08 Feb 2020 08:35:10
Won’t go for him now got Bruno.

Midfield recruitment will probably focus on Declan Rice now.

8.) 08 Feb 2020 10:31:57
Declan Rice is still raw and not a finished product.
I feel we should go all out for SMS or Saul Niguez who is technically class.

A midfield will of Bruno, McTominay and Saul will have creativity, energy and can dominate games.

Backup options of Fred, Matic and Garner will provide good depth in terms of rotation.

9.) 08 Feb 2020 10:33:51
Declan Rice? Really?

10.) 08 Feb 2020 11:40:44
I can see the appeal of Rice. Not the player I would go for, but a good defensive midfielder with huge scope for improvement and British to boot.

Personally I would want someone who can see those defence splitting passes that can cut through a team, as well as someone who can shield the back four, break up play and track runners.

I think we need two midfielders to give us a more rounded selection. Currently we have two destructive energetic box to box players in McTominay and Fred. While Bruno Fernandes is a creative player who can score and assist.

I think we need a proper holding midfielder who'll give the midfield a base and shield the defence. someone who could set the tempo with their passing would be preferable.

While the second midfielder needs to replace Pogba, a box to box player who is creative. Someone who'll pick the ball up and dribble through the lines and break a press then have the presence of mind to make the right decision in the final third, either shoot or pass to a forward runner.

11.) 08 Feb 2020 12:42:56
Rice a good dm? Very overrated and his future lies at cb. Not needed.

12.) 09 Feb 2020 08:44:20
Ruben Neves for me.



28 Jan 2020 13:45:30
Whether he signs or not ( I personally couldn't care less anymore) has Bruno Fernandes surpassed Sneijder, Gaitin and Garay as the most farcical transfer rumour in recent history.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 18:38:10
Who would have thought that Sneijder could have been topped.



27 Jan 2020 16:02:25
The latest name we're being linked to in the media is Antero Henrique for DOF or 'market man' as the reports call it.
Do any of the eds know if there is any truth in this?


{Ed002's Note - He is available and has been speaking with another side. I have been travelling and can’t provide confirmation but he might be someone they would consider - but timing wise it is not a good time.}

1.) 27 Jan 2020 21:15:14
Cheers Ed002, the first reports came from France and Italy so maybe not Woodward’s PR men putting it out there.

{Ed002's Note - The next few days are busy for me but I will try to find out.}

2.) 27 Jan 2020 21:44:50
Much appreciated Ed.

3.) 27 Jan 2020 21:44:50

Imagine that happens, City’s ban is upheld and we get given 4th place and CL qualification 😆.

Pretty much yeah.
It seems like Neymar does what he wants there and the owners indulge it.
I can see Pogba being the extra bit of quality they need to win the CL though.

06 Feb 2020 19:12:39
I can see Pogba ending up at PSG. He’d fit in with the superstar status that Neymar and Mbappé have there. He would win titles and have CL football guaranteed every year. The owners will want a CL trophy soon and would probably pay the money.
It would be the perfect solution for all parties.


{Ed047's Note - where he can be a bigger dick than he currently is, if that is in fact humanly possible.

Agreed Ken, he’s brought a lot more to the squad than what he shows on the pitch. For someone to take over the captaincy like he has, shows some balls. I mentioned this when he was signed. In the World Cup with England, he looked like one of the leaders in the dressing room. Add Fernandes to that and we’re heading in the right direction.

I’ve said it already but I’m more than happy to eat my hat on this one. The lad has come in and done excellent. I was worried he would take time adjusting back to the PL after playing in China. How wrong was I.
