Hi Ed's, is it true that we can still sign players on loan?

{Ed002's Note - No.}



05 Jul 2019 12:17:35
Hi Ed's, do we have any standing interest in John McGinn or Dani Olmo?

{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not aware of any approach. (b) No. He is moving elsewhere.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 13:10:05
Thank you ED, so i would not hold my breath for any of those two.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

Only thing that might hurt us this season is the depth of our squad.
With a super busy February i think we should have opted to buy few backup players in midfield to give some rest to Matic, Herrera and Pogba.
Rabiot was/ is available and i think would be a very good addition. Upfront we are fine and have plenty of cover in forward positions.

Problem with our defence is known to everyone except EW, may be he is just waiting for a new manager and not buying players that a new manager would not want.
Hope we cope well with busy fixtures and come out unscathed.

1.) 30 Jan 2019 13:02:23
I think Rabiot would be a great signing - even if secured on a free transfer to come in at the end of the season. Would work very well with Pogba/ Matic/ Herrera and being French probably would get on well with Pogba and Martial.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 16:35:20
For me its a no brainer but is there any interest from either side? Probably not.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 07:24:12
Midfield depth is a big issue as we only have three players of the desired quality.



25 Jan 2019 13:48:12
Any interest from Man Utd to buy Nicolo Barella? read something on the papers, EDs?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. Liverpool looked at him a while back.}



14 Jan 2019 09:38:14
United in contact with David Brooks?

1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:25:39
Hugely talented prospect And would be nice to make something of a young lad City cut loose.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 12:13:39
they haven't called me yet.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 15:12:30


You win the internet today for that comment.

Have a thumbs up as well.

Lets just leave Pool and City aside, clubs like Arsenal, Tot, Chelsea are at our level at the moment.
We can definitely finish in top 4 by playing the kind of football we are playing currently.
Martial looks like a completely different player and James when played on the left side is more threatening than Rashford.
As the season progresses and we gel better, we will be a very difficult team to beat. Gomes should make the bench at least in place of Mata. Defense looks good and with every passing game chemistry between CB's will get better.
I just hope that Sanchez doesn't leave as we are in desperate need to depth in the squad.
One or Two new faces in January or Summer and we will be very close to a complete squad.

Lets just focus on the positives and move ahead, its a marathon not a 100mtr dash.

1.) 25 Aug 2019 20:36:11
Good point Becks. Let’s play James on the left, let’s give Greenwood a chance, let’s let the defence get to know each other, let’s HAVE SOME FAITH! The only thing I would add is let’s get Garner into this squad.

2.) 25 Aug 2019 21:50:33
Ajh again i agree let's play james on the left. Move rash to the right I've been calling for rash on the right for 18 months.
Play pogba 10.

3.) 25 Aug 2019 21:51:56
Becks let's see what ole does at the moment its just more of the same with slightly nicer packaging.
He needs to be ruthless.



22 Aug 2019 11:09:22
I know its early but who can be the break out team/ Player of this year? Last year it was Wolves for me and player was Ruben Neves.
This year i think it will be Sheffield United, they had the best defensive record and will create a lot of upset this year.
Break out player will be one of Mason Mount or Harry Wilson.

{Ed004's Note - Im not sure on the team yet. None have stood out yet. I will go for Martial as breakout player}

1.) 22 Aug 2019 18:57:21
Pukki of Norwich. Deadly in front of goal.

2.) 22 Aug 2019 20:10:36
Was pukki the one who struggled at Celtic?

3.) 23 Aug 2019 01:19:41
I will go with Martial too.

4.) 23 Aug 2019 04:52:30
Greenwood and Mctominay - breakout players.

5.) 23 Aug 2019 09:05:06
Can't say martial as he is in our squad for 4 years.
I think mount will be the breakthrough player.

6.) 23 Aug 2019 09:52:03
I was thinking the same Ken but Martial has disappeared for so many years that it feels like a new signing.

7.) 23 Aug 2019 10:09:41
I have been one if his fiercest critics. But the context could change this year if he has a new position and obviously more importantly he has a number on his jersey now that he likes and it makes him move his legs a little bit more from a jog into an actual full on sprint😂.

8.) 23 Aug 2019 10:10:37
Maybe if we turn pogbas number upside down he will sprint a bit more too😂.

9.) 23 Aug 2019 11:10:36



21 Aug 2019 11:07:20
We played a behind the doors friendly with Sheffield United at Carrington and Sanchez was a part of the squad.
Pereira, Gomes and Greenwood scored in a 3-1 win. Other players who started were Dalot, Matic, Smalling and young.
Selling Sanchez will obviously do us a world of good, keeping wouldn't do much harm as we will have some depth to this thin squad.
Let him stay till January, buy a couple of players and let him go once we are good to cover certain areas.
Who knows he might click in the #10 role in place of Lingard, as he himself can run a lot when fit.

1.) 21 Aug 2019 11:26:12
Greenwood, Mata, Gomes also played in that match.
Looks like they will be fit whenever called upon.

The midweek Europa trips will test our squad depth.

2.) 21 Aug 2019 11:48:03
He’s no worse a player than Lingard or Mata so I’d keep him for the time being and play him when fit. Still feel the ability is there it’s just confidence and fitness hindering him.

3.) 21 Aug 2019 20:32:58
Sanchez has been truly dreadful, he can’t even pass to a team mate. Whatever the limitations of Mata and Lingard, to say Sanchez has been no worse is at best factually incorrect.



20 Aug 2019 09:04:15
I know we did well yesterday, afterwards its a difficult fixture away from home and we did nothing wrong as such to lose 2 points (apart from the penalty) .
However Would like to point out Lingard with his performances for united over a year.
Jesse Lingard, Goal or an assist?
May-18 : NO
Aug-18 : NO
Sep-18 : NO
Oct-18 : NO
Nov-18 : NO
Dec-18 : 4 Goals 2 Assists
Jan-19 : NO
Feb-19 : NO
Mar-19 : NO
Apr-19 : NO
May-19 : NO
Aug-19 : NO

But people think just because he runs a lot he is a a great player. I've lost counts of chances he has bottled in the box (2 last night) .
We are so thin in terms of squad depth that we have to stick with such players, also what do we have as Plan-B? Pereira and Mata?

Ed's thoughts on Lingard?

{Ed004's Note - I feel the club has let Ole down in the summer by not signing attackers. I think we will struggle to score this season. To start a season with Lingard as first choice is not good enough}

1.) 20 Aug 2019 20:31:08
I think in a title challenging team Lingard would be a useful squad player able to come on do a job in certain games.

He works hard, is tactically astute and able to play across all the forward positions. He lacks a certain something to make him first team material though.

Currently he is better than anyone else in our squad in the No.10 for the style Ole wants to play. The club should have bought a better option in the summer. Yet Angel Gomes could end up being the perfect player for that role. So buying someone would have put an extra body in his way to the first team.

I'm confident that Gomes will be first choice by the end of the season.

2.) 20 Aug 2019 20:32:56
Is Gomes maybe more capable of playing that no.10 role or too soon?

3.) 20 Aug 2019 21:38:25
I think he is ready to play some games, but he needs easing in. Physically getting him to play 30+ games at senior level will not be good for his body. But talent wise he is ready.

4.) 20 Aug 2019 19:50:56
Totally agree Ed we needed a goal score and a creater.

5.) 20 Aug 2019 22:52:25
Lingard is and never will be good enough for utd.

6.) 21 Aug 2019 05:56:53
Agree with Ed004.
The board has let down Ole by not signing a midfielder and an attacker.
Imagine the same team with Pepe on right wing and Bruno at no 10.
The squad would have been at a different level.

Ole has the right ideas. The transition from defence to attack, pressing, playing out from the back and the overall energy and team spirit is exciting to watch.

But now players such as Andreas, Greenwood, Gomes etc, have a genuine chance to cement their place in the team. It's upto them to fight and seize the chance.

7.) 21 Aug 2019 05:57:17
I feel sorry for Lingard. He puts in so much work and effort into his celebrations but isn't getting the chance to show those silky moves. I think we should make him the designated goal celebrator for the team. He will entertain the crowds and pss off the opposition. Moreover he doesn't even need to be in the team, he can just replace Fred the red. Of course we can still pay him 200k per week.

8.) 21 Aug 2019 08:38:39
Lingard turn this week .

9.) 21 Aug 2019 13:07:43
Shaps are you taking bets on that gomes prediction?



15 Aug 2019 11:24:02
Hi ED's, Sir Alex is listed as one of the directors of the club, so what are his exact roles and responsibilities towards the club in that role?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no consequence whatsoever.}

1.) 16 Aug 2019 07:20:11

According to certain members of the press he tells Ole what to do at all times, including which players to buy (anybody Scottish) and who to select in the team, what tactics we play and what type of oranges they eat at half time.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 09:14:21
He's a calming influence on Ole, and is always there if Ole needs some advice, it would be daft if Ole didn't bend the ear of a man with that experience from time to time.

Not happening mate, our transfer dealings are done. We will see a lot of Pereira in that midfield. Also we will see the rise of Angel Gomes this season.

Is he the same Dybala who scored only 4 goals last term and was benched most of the time as his defensive contribution was minimal? He is not a right winger for sure and we usually don't play with a #10, and if we were to play with a #10 i would prefer Mata to play there.

Meunier played only 20 odd games this season and whenever he played he was average, hence they are letting him go, so its a big no for Meunier.
Dalot has potential no doubt, but i would let him add depth to the squad for a season or two and sign AWB as an immediate starter.

Next Summer we should try for Sancho and Maddison. January i don't think we'll sign anyone.

Claudio Marchisio (had a knee surgery) , Yohan Cabaye, Llorente, Jack Rodwell, Lewis Holtby, Kiesuke Honda, Seydou Doumbia are a few high profile Free Agents available. I would olny be interested in Llorente just to provide a different dimension to our game.

ED47, Grealish would be the best example if we want to compare Lingard in some other team.

{Ed047's Note - becks I wasn’t really comparing as such, just indicating you need a lot better. Even as a squad player you want them to make a difference.

I’m glad we’ve moved Iwobi on and would like to see the same for Mustafi, Xhaka, Miki, Elneny and to a slightly lesser degree Özil.

None bring enough to the party and if you keep settling for players like that you never or only really slowly move forward.

Gazza/ Shappy, Don't know what planet football you guys have been watching but from where i come from if you are playing at #10 then your primary job is just not linking play. You are there to provide assists and score goals as well.
Eriksen and KDB have got all their basics wrong it seems.

Brilliant post Ken, Love for the academy lads is fine but one needs to know that if they aren't performing for a longer period then get rid of them. We as club have made positive strides by addressing two problematic areas, let's move in that same direction. Buy/ Promote players who can make an impact or can make a difference.
