Hi All, recently i was listening to a podcast from Duncan Castles where he said, Ole signed 20 odd players from his close friend and business partner Jim Solbakken while he was in charge of Molde and Cardiff, Ole also referred Lindegaard and Mame Biram Diouf to Sir ALex when he was our reserves manager (again same agent) .

Even in our January window he targeted King who has Jim as his agent and Ighalo who has a agent who is Norwegian and close associate of Jim.

Do yo think there is something fussy about all the dealings?


1.) 04 Feb 2020 08:56:58
Duncan castles is a fool and he talks nonsense.


nothing to do with that maybe the 2 players king and ighalo were the only ones available

harry, awb, james and bruno don't have that agent, just another poor journo trying to find something else to slate us for.


2.) 04 Feb 2020 09:33:02
So currently we have signed Maguire, AWB, James, Bruno and Ighalo on loan under Ole. The players we have been heavily linked to and we can probably all agree that there is at least some interest from the club in are Maddison, Sancho, Rice, Koulibaly, Kalvin Phillips and Dembele.

So 5 players signed, 6 players heavily linked and not one of them has Jim Solbakken as their agent.

Ighalo agent is Emefie Akeke Atta who is Nigerian but has worked closely with several Norwegian clubs and as such has many links with clubs, agents and managers who work or have worked in the Norwegian league.

With hours left of the transfer window the only realistic chance you have of getting a deal done is though a contact, someone you know and trust.

So I don't find it odd that the signing we made with only a few hours to go before the deadline had an agent who was an associate of our managers agent.

If you want to talk about inappropriate relationships between a manager and an agent that have a direct effect on club signings then you probably should have taken issue with Sir Alex often using his son's agency and even pressuring youth players at our club to sign for his son's agency.

This was at a time when Sir Alex pretty much had absolute power to run the club as he saw fit, and he often did make transfer related decisions based on the agent involved. i.e he refused to work with Raiola, but had a good relationship with Jorge Mendes and obviously his son.

Ole doesn't have anything link that sort of power to insist the club sign a player his agent represents. There is a structure and the manager is only a part of that and although he has the right to veto signings, he can't force the club to sign whoever he wants.

Think about where this was reported, on Duncan Castles own personal podcast. A media source where he earns more money the more people who download and listen to it. He knows United gets clicks, and he knows there is a concern amongst United supporters about how the club is run. So he tries ridiculously to suggest that Ole is abusing his position to help his agent earn money out of the club, despite the fact that currently the only deal his agent has made with the club is to install Ole as manager.


3.) 04 Feb 2020 19:06:48
Bolger2 - Duncan Castles is a fool and talks nonsense? Seriously? Probably the most reliable source of info with regards to United all window. Other than this site, he’s the only other journalist I take any notice of.

Hi Ed's, too much noise about Eriksen to utd, any truth to this rumor?

{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho wants the club to keep him, but he wants to move elsewhere - but his preferred option probably won’t happen as they prefer someone else, which make the chance of something good. And far more economically sound than BF.}


1.) 06 Dec 2019 15:40:02
I reckon Eriksen would be a very good signing for us. We really need a 10 as Pereira or Lingard aren't the answer in that position. We have a very young squad and Eriksen is experienced in the PL, good from set pieces and would add some much needed quality to our midfield.

In games where we are trying to break down sides who sit back we currently struggle and Eriksen would be very good in these situations.

There are times where he hasn't turned up in big games, however, he's a big upgrade on what we have.


2.) 06 Dec 2019 14:43:18
Great insight. Thanks Ed002.


3.) 06 Dec 2019 17:44:04
Id have him in a heartbeat -hes not top drawer but then neither are we. He is streets ahead of pereira, mata, lingard and takes a good free kick. If we could off load Matic into the bargain all the better.

One fella who doesn't get a mention is Ryan Fraser -out of contract end of the season and was linked to Arsenal -Spurs a while back. would be a very decent squad player and on his day also better than the 3 mentioned above. caused us problems in recent seasons too . Skilful and hardworking with PL experience . probably jump at the chance to prove himself at a bigger club.


4.) 06 Dec 2019 19:35:04
Eriksen would be good for the games against lesser teams we struggle to break down. Lingard I would use in the games against the bigger teams. His energy and pressing works well in those games.


5.) 06 Dec 2019 21:03:30
Eriksen would be brilliant if only for all of our attacking set pieces. Rashford grabs a few each season from these but it would be great to feel optimistic when we get a free kick in range. At the minute options are predictable and limited.


6.) 08 Dec 2019 11:18:30
Thank You So much ED, Although i like the player, I also remember he said he won't like to move to united. Wouldn't this be another Sanchez like situation?

{Ed002's Note - No, I don't see why.}


7.) 08 Dec 2019 20:54:29
Would love to see Eriksen supplying the front 3.


 

 

12 Aug 2019 08:24:24
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.}


 

 

30 Jan 2019 10:03:04
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.

Does anyone think Fred can be a contender for POTY this year. His ball winning ability is really good and has been growing in confidence every game.
Thoughts on him?


1.) 18 Feb 2020 12:20:17
Not good enough if we really want to get ourselves back up to a certain level.


2.) 18 Feb 2020 12:24:24
He has been very good this year and is finally showing his worth. Definitely a contender.

If Brandon Williams keeps getting games and playing well I would have him in the shortlist too.


3.) 18 Feb 2020 12:24:50
He had another good game yesterday, i thought he was the best player on the pitch with Matic. They both worked there ar*es off from start to finish. He's getting better every game and i have changed my opinion on him, i think he's won over a lot of Man U fans.


4.) 18 Feb 2020 13:44:18
AngelRed. if Fred isn't good enough to get back to a certain level then for me Mctominay is in same category.

For me Fred is POTY and is better and been better than McTominay.


5.) 18 Feb 2020 15:35:16
People keep saying he isn't good enough but he does a stack of dirty work, he's really growing on me.


6.) 18 Feb 2020 15:53:38
If McTominay played for Norwich or Watford, would anybody be suggesting we should go out and spend money for him?


7.) 18 Feb 2020 16:28:03
Rashford is clearly the POTY. His goals have kept us in the top 4 race.


8.) 18 Feb 2020 16:41:09
bilko - no


9.) 18 Feb 2020 19:45:16
He had the energy of 5 Duracell bunnies if we could just keep him away from the ball we'd be fine. Does a mountain of work all over the pitch and has a great attitude and that's what we need right now till the end of the season.


 

 

06 Feb 2020 12:01:36
what will you prefer out of these two options?

Sell Pogba, get around 100 mil for him and reinvest the same to strengthen other areas.

Keep Pogba and Play him (provided he is fit) with McT and Bruno.

{Ed002's Note - Then he could run his contract down and leave for nothing. Great idea.}


1.) 06 Feb 2020 12:32:04
It’s a no-brainer for me sell him and reinvest what is the point in keeping a player that has zero interest in being at the club.

If the club block his move and he runs his contract down and then leaves for nothing Then that is ridiculous business sense.

I’d personally tell him now that they will grant his request to leave at the end of the season and hope he would give his all until that time.


2.) 06 Feb 2020 12:41:01
Becks, we won't get anywhere near 100m for Pogba. He wants out, has a year left on his deal and has hardly played all season.

Would you want United to spend 100m on a player with 1 year left on their contract, who had spent almost an entire season out injured and who has actively tried to get out of his club for the last two years

60-70m is the most we will get for Pogba. He has huge wages and very few clubs can afford to match or come close to matching his wages. Which means there are only a handful of potential buyers, in reality probably only one or two, and neither want him enough to get pulled into a bidding war.

If Zidane leave Real Madrid in the summer or sooner then Real Madrid's interest in Pogba will leave with him. Barcelona no longer have any interest. Bayern Munich aren't interested. That would leave Juventus as the only club with a declared interest. Personally I think PSG might become an option if Real Madrid push through a deal for Mbappe as they will want to be seen to be bringing in a top French player if Mbappe leaves.

All that considered I would sell him for whatever we can and move on. We will never win anything with players who don't want to be here. Pogba wanting to leave dragged on last season, its dragged on this season, do we really want it to drag on next season?


3.) 06 Feb 2020 12:46:52
I say sell both Pogba and Martial.
No more tolerating any sulking players.
The cultural reboot will be complete.

Apart from those 2, all other players put a good shift even if things don't go well.


4.) 06 Feb 2020 12:15:55
I will personally prefer selling him 02.


5.) 06 Feb 2020 13:31:45
Sell and move on. We will be in the same position down the line when it is not going his way.
The club has not provided the team he was probably promised, he in turn has not played as we had hoped. It's time for both to part ways.
I think it's a shame Mctominy got injured, a 3 of Fernandes, Fred and Mctominy could have been decent for the last few months of the season.


6.) 06 Feb 2020 14:23:35
Do we not have a 12 month option on his contract? If we do he then has 2 years not 1 to which he is contracted? Does that not affect his market value? Prepared to be corrected.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, there is an option but forcing a player who already wants out to stay could result in all sort of problems for the club. The value is unaffected.}


7.) 06 Feb 2020 15:08:29
The only way the one year option would work would be to force Pogba to stay an extra year then be in the same situation summer 2021. There is nothing to be gained from that. Ed002 has said there are rule that stop us forcing the extension just to make more money as he has an extra year on his contract.

So are options are:

1, sell him this summer.

2, force him to stay then lose him on a free in 2021.

3, activate the one year extension option and be stuck back in this situation in the summer of 2021, while also having another year of him sulking.

Sell him and be done with it. This season we have paid him 290k per week. It doesn't matter how good he could be, if he isn't on the pitch its a waste of money. Why do that again next season.


8.) 06 Feb 2020 15:37:42
Thanks Ed002. And Shappy. it was just a question. The replies make perfect sense. Personally I think he should have gone some time ago and only see him as a disruptive influence.


9.) 06 Feb 2020 17:40:17
If money was not the driving force of the glazers, I'd force the extra year on his contract and tell him to stay at home. Let him waste a further 2 year of his life, just like he has been wasting our time. Fergie had his card well marked, leopards and spots.


10.) 06 Feb 2020 18:10:07
Jrred

What reputation would that give United? It is going to be hard enough attracting players with the useless manager and mess of a club, without being seen as a destroyer of careers. Whoever made the decision to force Pogba to stay last summer was an idiot. They should have got rid and moved on. It’s amateur.


11.) 06 Feb 2020 21:10:22
Move him on please. Its best for everyone.


12.) 06 Feb 2020 22:24:42
Shappy - Knowing the way the Club operate I just don't think there is any chance they will entertain selling one of its most prised assets for less than we paid for him and certainly not for £60-70m.

Pogba is one of the most famous and marketable athletes in the world, he effectively has two years left on his contract (not one) and he's still only 26 years old. Whilst he's undoubtedly been disappointing in a Utd shirt, on his day he remains one of the most talented midfielders in the world and will no doubt benefit from playing with better players. Expectations at Utd continue to remain unrealistically high with many fans expecting him to be a Kante, Yaya Toure and Zidane all rolled into one.

Pogba is not just a footballer, he's a character, a personality, he's a brand in his own right. In a world of celebrity and social media Pogba is perhaps more valuable to Utd off the pitch than on it at this moment in time.

Utd need a figure to promote the brand and if they lose Pogba they risk becoming irrelevant both off and on the pitch.

Sponsorship and advertising revenue rely on the Club remaining relevant, continuing to generate interest, column inches, click bait etc. Pogba generates interest, he's a selling point for the Club.

From a footballing perspective let's say common sense prevailed and Pogba was sold for £60-70m. Realistically what would that money buy us? A more committed player perhaps, but certainly not someone with the marketability or worldwide appeal of a Paul Pogba.

Let's see what happens but I'd be amazed if he was sold for anything less than we paid for him and I think the Club would want significantly more than that!

I get the feeling this will be another summer dominated by Paul Pogba.


13.) 07 Feb 2020 04:59:37
DLIB, Have to disagree on that point.

If the performance on the pitch improves, automatically everything else will follow.

The basic attribute expected of any player on the pitch is to put some effort and be passionate for their club, respect the fans who are paying their money whio travel miles to watch them.


14.) 07 Feb 2020 08:22:17
TRD - I agree I was merely speculating as to why Utd appear so reluctant to sell him. I would definitely move him on in the summer but I'm just not convinced the Club will let him go for less than they paid for him. In fact I think they'll want a tidy profit before they even consider it. Of course this is only my opinion but I think we're in for another summer dominated by Paul Pogba unfortunately.


15.) 07 Feb 2020 10:16:29
DLIB, The club refused to sell him last summer for anything less than 120m. The best offer the club received was 50m + a player the buying club was trying to shift.

Why would any club offer more this summer after Pogba has a year less on his contract, and has spent most of the season out injured.

The club over paid for him when we signed him. No other club would come close to paying what United did.

The clubs options are cut him loose this summer, or drag his departure out for either another year then he leaves on a free, or two years then he leaves on a free. The offers won't be getting any bigger for him.


16.) 07 Feb 2020 11:12:28
Shappy - It's only your opinion that the Club won't get more than £60-70m for him. If that's the case it's my opinion that he won't be sold.

If nobody is prepared to meet his valuation I think he'll be forced to stay. What that says about the Club or does for the team and the re building process remains to be seen but it will represent another huge embarrassment if they can't get a decent fee for a global superstar in an era where ridiculous transfer fees are becoming commonplace.

Real Madrid paid £130m for Hazard a 28 year old in the last year of his contract.

Athletico paid over £100m last summer for a child Joao Felix.

Barca have paid over £100m for the likes of Dembele, Courtinho and Greizmann.

Pogba is a global icon, he remains an immensely talented footballer, he's a World Cup winner and at 26 years old with effectively two years still left on his contract the Club will want to make a handsome profit if they are to lose their most marketable asset.

Let's just see what happens in the summer.


17.) 07 Feb 2020 13:25:41
DLIB, I know its just my opinion. But can you really say you've seen something from Pogba or a desperate need for him open up at one of the clubs that could afford him that would drive them to offer more for him this summer than last?


18.) 07 Feb 2020 15:40:43
Shappy - I completely agree with you pal it seems ridiculous to me that the Club appear reluctant to sell a player who obviously doesn't want to be at the Club. I also agree that Pogba is only worth what other interested Clubs are prepared to invest. Utd have sold other big stars such as Di Maria and Lukaku for a loss so I don't necessarily subscribe to the idea that they hold players prisoner.

I'm not an expert and it's pure speculation on my part but Pogba is a global superstar and some players are so famous that they actually transcend their own sport. Maybe Pogba falls within that bracket. I can only think that if Utd sell Pogba it could potentially damage the brand and make the Club less marketable and attractive to future investment hence the reluctance to move him on and re build the team.

Anyway what do I know and maybe I'm just overthinking things.

Are these Sander Berge rumours true? Who is he and what are his attributes?


1.) 28 Jan 2020 11:50:51
MEN chatting bollocks. embarassing for them.


2.) 28 Jan 2020 13:23:01
Lets hope the Fernandes to Barcelona rumours are true because its plainly obvious we aren't getting him so next best thing is that it doesn't get rammed down our throats by joining one of our rivals.
He deserves to go to a team as good as barcelona were gonae regret this for a long time better believe it .


3.) 28 Jan 2020 13:53:44
We will regret it, the owners couldn't give a toss.


4.) 28 Jan 2020 15:54:52
Looks like the writing is on the wall for Ole now. I feel bad for him because he hasn’t had the backing that a club like Manchester United should be giving managers. Nothing spent last January, minimal net spend in the summer once you consider outgoing players and nothing this January either.

To be clear, I never thought he was the right man for the job but if you’re going to keep a guy in the hot seat in spite of his clear lack of ability (this in itself is probably the most baffling part), the least you can do is support him in the market.

If the club don’t trust him going forward, he should either have been moved on already or at the very least his replacement should have already been lined up and be in a position to advise on what kind of player he’d like so that we can get them in and settled ready for next season (not to mention boost our slim chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League) .

Had the club already appointment somebody to oversee transfers (as they seem to have been talking about for years), the uncertainty over the manager’s future would have little impact on our transfer plans.

I don’t work in football and am sure there are many elements I don’t understand, but from the outside looking in, it seems as though the people in charge have about as much knowledge of how to run a football club than I do, if not less. Shambles.


5.) 28 Jan 2020 20:57:17
If Ole hasn't the backing of the club he should walk away and do what's best for United - the team he puts before himself. He can then tell it like it is at the club.


 

 

20 Jan 2020 07:53:40
How bad has victor lindelof been lately? He was signed as a ball playing CB yet all his passes or clearance found liverpool players the whole game.

Shaw did well but again wasnt able to complete full 90. Along with a few players we need to fire the whole medical team as well.
They would have advised Ole and co about how serious was Rashford's injury rather than aggravating it over time, now he is out for 2-3 months it seems.
Same goes for Pogba, there was no need to play him in that cup game if he was not fully fit.
Thoughts?


 

 

08 Jan 2020 09:27:09
Sometimes i feel its unfair to judge a player just because he was bought for a certain price, We have been criticizing Maguire a lot and yesterday we saw what he brings to the table.

He is not the best defender but definitely the best "WE" have right now. He has also been playing at Left side of the defense which is not his natural position, he has also been responsible for a few goals but he must be given time. He also needs a better partner besides him, Lindelof is average at its best. If we want to reach the top again then average won't help.

Williams should be starting every game when available, there is no shortage of talent there just experience. I am really starting to feel that Romero needs to get a few games ahead of DDG, his distribution is appalling.

I would still give ole another transfer window to fix things, we have been throwing an occasional fight with the players we have at our helm and can do better with better players in certain positions.

Thoughts?


1.) 08 Jan 2020 09:53:24
Maguire's best position is on the left hand side. That's where he played for Hull, Leicester and England.

He probably is our best defender, but that doesn't make him a great one.

He is very good in the air, and good at bring the ball out/ playing bout from the back.

However, he lacks pace and positional sense. Either of them by themselves isn't a problem. A defender who lacks pace but has good positional sense won't be caught out too often (Vidic) . While a player with poor positional sense but who is quick can quickly recover ground (Ferdinand) .

However a player with poor positional sense AND with no recovery pace will be exposed.

Harry needs a strong leader beside him to talk him through a game and make sure he is always in the right position. Then his lack of pace won't be a problem.

I can understand why many people feel Maguire hasn't lived up to his billing/ price tag. I said at the time there are better players available for half the price.


2.) 08 Jan 2020 10:13:32
Maguire should never have been bought. What a waste of money!


3.) 08 Jan 2020 10:39:09
when was Jose was in for him we were getting him for 50m which would have been apt.
We don't have a transfer startegy of our own
When lvg left we signed Herrera, a Target of Moyes, and we baulked at paying a few millions more in the summer and spent the season without a midfield.


4.) 08 Jan 2020 10:59:49
the defense gets no help from the midfield.

teams just walk through us.


5.) 08 Jan 2020 11:01:57
Maguire is our best CB at the moment.


6.) 08 Jan 2020 11:35:33
When are we going to start having a serious conversation about how bad Victor Lindelof is?


7.) 08 Jan 2020 11:40:37
Rio Ferdinand had poor positional sense? Is that the same Rio Ferdinand who talked everyone of his CB partners through the game and told them where they needed to be? Arguably one of the best centre backs in English football.

Ludicrous comment.


8.) 08 Jan 2020 12:08:59
DLIB, Victor can't head, can run and he is not the ball playing CB we craved for years. Smalling would have done better instead of that Clown.


9.) 08 Jan 2020 12:11:41
TDK it is strange world we live in today, no person who has actually achieved something is safe. Rio had poor positional sense, klopp was lucky to survive the first 18 months at liverpool, lingard is just like park. The nuggets of wisdom from ole supporters just don't stop.


10.) 08 Jan 2020 12:41:28
Herrera should never have been allowed to leave the club. What I would do to have him back in that midfield three.

Technically not the best CM but gave 100% and did a job.


11.) 08 Jan 2020 12:52:01
Hold on CSM, don't tarnish all Ole supporters with those gems!


12.) 08 Jan 2020 13:17:21
Rio Ferdinand was a supreme ball playing centre back. But for large parts of his career it was his recovery pace that got him out of jail.

If his positioning was so good he wouldn't have needed that recovery pace in the first place. His positioning did improve towards the back end of his career.

But he never had to talk Sol Campbell, John Terry or Nemanja Vidic through a game. He shouted a lot but often after a mistake had been made, whereas if he was that good at positioning himself or talking his teammates through a game then those mistakes wouldn't have happened in the first place.

There seems to be this idea that past great players were perfect and never made mistakes or had class to their game. That's ludicrous.


13.) 08 Jan 2020 15:50:25
Please don't mention Rio Ferdiand on the same page as Victor Lindleoff. Lindleoff is absolutley awful.

In his fisrt season he was very bad and only got slightly better afte that but not much. I've listened to some on here praise him and kept my mouth shut because it seemed everyone thought he was great. He's not!

I mean a centre half who can't head it!? He's can't move his feet to clesr the ball hence the crap cleareance (Arsenal) own goal (everton) and embarassing effort last night after miss placing a 5 yard header.

All the great players had bad days and got caught out but let's not pretend Victor is on of those please!


14.) 08 Jan 2020 18:05:50
Rio ferdinand did not have poor positional sense that's wrong. He was a top class centre back in every sense.
His partnership with vidic was excellent because they complimented each other well.
1 a great ball winner the other a lovely footballer that covered vidic when he went to attack a ball. Rio played that role so well because of his excellent positional sense.


15.) 08 Jan 2020 18:16:21
Rio didn't have excellent positional sense. He had a good pair of ears and listened to what VDS was saying to him.

There was a time when people argued Wes Brown should start ahead of Rio due to the mistakes he made and the space he left behind him.

Rio became a top top centre back, but to argue he was perfect and had no flaws in his game is looking back with fanciful rose tinted glasses.


16.) 08 Jan 2020 18:24:52
How is Maguire even captain?

He doesn't talk.
He doesn't organise


He's not and will never be a leader.

He's decent I air and on ball but that's it.

Dunk is faster and has better positional sense. He's just as good in the air and on the ball.

Lindeloff worst game by far against city.

We don't have a good enough CB to challenge.

We definitely need 2x Cbs.

Who argued he was perfect shappy?
He positional sense was excellent. Read saf books read comments from all his previous partners who believe it or not know so much more than you and your ability to argue your crap smells like roses.
Of course he improved with experience i think you will find that's the case with 99.9% of cb's
Honestly i think you suffer from the written form of verbal diahreagh. 😂.

No one is saying he never made a mistake or had a bad game but that doesn't mean he had poor positional sense. And it also doesn't mean it because he had pace. Rio poor positional sense but Vidic good positional sense? Give me some of what your smoking mate.

And also there seems to be this idea that past great players make good managers, even when they clearly have no idea how to change a formation or tactic during a game but some would rather write a pointless 400 word essay on why we should all blindly support him because they don't want to man up and say I'm wrong.

Rio was world class. There’s no debate in my book. A prime Ferdinand walks into any side imo.

{Ed025's Note - im with you caolan..

He’d probably still make the side Ed.

{Ed025's Note - he would be your best player caolan.. :)

Maguire prefers to play on the left side and has made as many errors as Lindelof. I understand that he may need time but he's come from the premier league so shouldn't need loads of time to adapt. He's very good in the air and good at nipping in when the ball is coming through but seems suspect at tackling and when players are running at him.

WRD, at this point seriously don't care about football or any other sport. All such activities must be stopped indefinitely till each person is cured and there is no danger of spreading it further.

Hope everyone is safe from this site.

Ruben Neves will be a dream signing, works hard for the team, passing is really good and has an ability to score an odd screamer.
Our scouting team does absolutely nothing i feel, players like Neves, Maddison, Buendia all were coming to PL after a brilliant season yet we were never interested.

That QPR lad Eberechi Eze looks like some player, already 10 goals and 6 assists from Midfield.

I seriously didn't knew Greenwood was that quick, for out third goal i thought it was Rashford who was running on the wings.

Thank you ED for this profile, His team has been doing really well this season as well. Hope we have his resume as well with other candidates when we decide to replace OLE.

{Ed001's Note - should have gone and got him a long time ago if you ask me.}
