Hi Ed,

Lots of reports from journalists about Haidara from Leipzig. Anything it or anyone else at Leipzig or is it likely just chatter due to the obvious reason of Rangnick?


{Ed002's Note - Amadou Haidara (CM) Opted for RBL over Southampton when he left RBS. An approach from Lokomotiv Moscow who wanted to add a little experience to their very young midfield was rejected and the thought is that Rangnick may take his interest to Manchester United - more of a Fred than a Pogba. He would be significantly cheaper than the players they have been showing an interest in like Bellingham and Milinkovic-Savic.}

1.) 30 Nov 2021 13:26:17
Ah very interesting, so he tried to sign him before. Would be smart since we probably need 2 midfielders with all the expected departures. Would Laimer still be of interest?

{Ed002's Note - No.}



16 Nov 2021 18:25:41
Hi Ed, this may be too rumoury, but Anthony Martial's wife has posted a couple times now on social media videos saying her husband has not been injured or sick. This would imply he is being kept out of the squad by the manager.

Whether justified or not is one thing, but are you aware of any discussions for Martial to leave United in upcoming windows or any change in his circumstances?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Sorry Chris I cannot help.}

1.) 18 Nov 2021 13:45:22
hes not injured or sick he's just s###e.

2.) 18 Nov 2021 17:19:03
No surprise if he is being frozen out. Can't remember the last time he had a good game for us.

3.) 19 Nov 2021 15:00:36
thing is danny, players like maguire, shaw, fred are all still getting game time after playing garbage for months.

4.) 20 Nov 2021 01:37:24
Wasn’t it only a few months ago that Ole blocked his departure? I really don’t get why players like Lingard, Donny and Martial are being kept at the club, unless it’s because those at the top believe that a new manager will come in soon and get more out of them.



11 Nov 2021 15:32:53
Hi Ed, reports come from italy today saying Kessie wants too much money for a re-sign with Milan, and they could look to sell in January. Is this possible, and is United a club potentially interested, with the midfield looking to be the next area we make signings (with departures of Pogba, and potentially others on the horizon)?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Franck Kessié (CM) Efforts are being made to secure a new contract, but the issue is over the wages continues with Milan struggling. Could potentially be sold but I expect agreement to be reached eventually else there will be a lot of interest with Juventus looking to meet his demands. Interest of Mr Mourinho at Spurs and now Roma remains. Spurs also want him as an Ndombele replacement but the player remains keen to move to Chelsea to eventually replace Kante - but Chelsea turned down the offer from his agent initially although a proposal is on the table that would suit both clubs and the player. Conte may press Spurs to add him. His agent has also approached Manchester United and PSG but both sides would need to move a player on in order to add Kessie - but both are interested. An option may exist with Barcelona considering a deal for Kessie that will involve Umtiti. His agent has also spoken with Liverpool and Leicester who may be interested in agreeing a pre-contract in January but both have preferred targets.}

1.) 11 Nov 2021 16:25:29
Thanks for the detailed answer Ed!

2.) 12 Nov 2021 03:43:37
But the real question is can kessie displace McFred as a starter?
Ole disagrees.

3.) 13 Nov 2021 12:31:23
Anyone with half a football brain knows Kessie is a better player than Fred. Unfortunately Ole doesn’t fall into that category.



15 Oct 2021 14:48:45
Hi Ed, is Aurelian Tchouameni actually on United’s radar, and would it be if Pogba leaves? Journalists running with it now, hard to tell if it’s real or just their usual stories following national team games.


{Ed002's Note - I am sure he would be considered but Monaco have made it clear to the two clubs who have discussed the player with them that they don't want to sell - but they are aware of an offer that will be made by one of these sides in January.}

1.) 15 Oct 2021 16:54:05
Thanks for the answer Ed, do you think they would be open to selling next summer? I imagine he will fetch quite a fee now as a full blooded French national player as well.

{Ed002's Note - They are fearful that he will force a sale.}

2.) 15 Oct 2021 19:35:42
Ed002, would I be right in thinking Chelsea are the club who will make an offer in January?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 16 Oct 2021 08:46:48
Ed002, Man Utd?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

4.) 16 Oct 2021 09:46:43
Assuming that Pogba is certain to leave Ed given your comments on here over the last year?

{Ed002's Note - I expect Pogba to leave as a Free Agent in the summer. His agent is looking at options.}

5.) 16 Oct 2021 12:11:37
For those interested, the other club (aside from Chelsea) that's been heavily linked is Juventus. I think it is Juve that might make an offer for him in January.

6.) 16 Oct 2021 15:14:21
Thanks Ed - given your comments and lack of deal being agreed has to be only outcome.



29 Aug 2021 21:32:38
Someone put me out of my misery and tell me we won’t sign a midfielder even if James goes? I can’t keep hoping for 2 more days. We dreadfully need one.


1.) 29 Aug 2021 21:39:25
We should of allowed Lingard to go to West Ham, allow James to go elsewhere and not have offered Mata a new deal. That would of enabled us to sign a midfielder.

{Ed014's Note - no idea why you need one, Ronaldo has it all in hand 🤣

2.) 29 Aug 2021 22:40:56
True, he does!

3.) 29 Aug 2021 23:06:59
Ronaldo will smash it but we need a CM asap.

4.) 30 Aug 2021 01:57:45
Any chance of Saul still?

5.) 29 Aug 2021 22:19:36
We can play long ball :)

6.) 29 Aug 2021 22:21:07
Ed - any interest in Martial?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything right now.}

7.) 30 Aug 2021 09:39:48
Around 36 more hours of this nonsense to go and we can then get on with the football!

8.) 30 Aug 2021 10:14:13
We really need a DM. Yesterday's game drilled home that point.
More importantly Fresh! and others, should/ could/ would is followed by have and not of!

9.) 30 Aug 2021 13:18:51
Think Neves is still fuming after Pogba-gate, he'd probably turn us down. More surprised if no club moves for Bissouma.

10.) 30 Aug 2021 13:33:27
Ed14 you jest, but what if Ronald tells ole he can’t play with McFred and needs to play with VDB to get the best out of him. He has then solved our issue.

{Ed014's Note - I’m not sure replacing McFred with VDB is the right way to do it.

You need Ronaldo to say I want a genuine defensive mid, a younger Matic then you can really start sorting things out.

Ole really is wasting what you have, there’s no way Wolves should have run rings around to the extent they did even if you still managed to win the game.

Decent sides will punish your lack of nous defensively.

So many times I’ve watched sides run through your midfield and straight onto your back line.

Tuchel has sorted Chelsea’s defence out in no time. Ole is still fannying around with his piss poor coaching staff.

11.) 30 Aug 2021 14:06:14
Ole is clueless. Ed014, most teams have worked out that pressing Utds defence works best. Maguire can't handle it and often gets caught out.

{Ed014's Note - he is mate, but luckily getting away with it, which as far as points go is fine.

It’s just not good enough for one of the worlds top clubs and wanting the big trophies.

Hello Ed, this may be a difficult question, but with Rangnick coming in as manager and consultant, one would imagine as with before, he will have a big focus on recruitment. Do you think this will change whatever plans or directions the club was looking at for the next coming windows?


{Ed002's Note - Not in the short term.}

1.) 27 Nov 2021 02:59:56
Okay thank you Ed!



26 Oct 2021 21:06:08
Hi Ed, Ole’s sacking seems inevitable but as you mentioned previously they may want someone who is unavailable til summer. Seems like Conte is not asked.

Any idea who could be an interim they might be discussing?


{Ed002's Note - An interim coach/manager makes no real sense. Use the resources at hand if needs be.}



25 Oct 2021 00:51:01
I think Ed mentioned we wouldn’t want to make a change unless pushed into a corner. This has to be that corner right? Think we make a change?


{Ed0666's Note - if you don’t get rid now you will regret it

1.) 25 Oct 2021 01:12:27
If we don’t get rid now we never will, it doesn’t get much worse than this, we needed a big moment to force their hand, let’s hope that was it and some good comes from today.

2.) 25 Oct 2021 04:33:34
I know I’m a LFC fan but I don’t think that they’ll sack Ole.
They’d have to get rid of his coaching staff too.
I just can’t see it t this point.
A mid-season review at Xmas but, most likely, they’ll give him until the end of the season.
Top 4, knockout phase of CL, and a cup run is the absolute minimum though.

3.) 25 Oct 2021 05:54:41
You are just hoping for that aren't you juicer? By Xmas we will most likely be out of contention for the top 4 places as well. The dressing room is gone. Yesterday was a performance of players not playing for the manager. Everybody was trying their best to get sent off.

4.) 25 Oct 2021 06:31:09
Get Conte in and salvage the season.

5.) 25 Oct 2021 06:44:16
It has Carrick as caretaker manager all over it. Which is even more frightening than Ole. None of the gormless buffoons sat either side of him ever seem to say anything at the best of times.



12 Oct 2021 00:39:35
Hi Ed, have you heard anything regarding the rumor that Rene could return as a coach to United?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 12 Oct 2021 14:15:19
Artois or Meulensteen? Knowing are club it will be the former and not the later.

2.) 12 Oct 2021 15:10:17
Maybe the ghost of Rene Artois, I'm sure we will just see through him though.
I'm here all week, try the veal.



30 Aug 2021 15:23:45
Hi Ed, I know unlikely there's much to say, but has anything changed on Lingard's situation, and is it likely we will need him to go in addition to Dan James for any more to be done for midfield?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything changing from what has been explained.}

Thank you, the usual names still suspected to leave? Lingard, Pogba, Mata? (By summer anyway) .


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Thanks Ed for all the detail. Are there any midfielders United are looking at over the next windows?


{Ed002's Note - It depends on departures.}

I think it’s possible he just wanted a break. He got a ton of stick for the last few months under Ole and probably didn’t see the fans accepting him. Or maybe he was in line for assistant after Phelan and now there’s no chance of that.

Ed, do you think Pochettino in summer is now the most realistic outcome? Seems to make the most sense. Given that we’ve actually sacked ole, is there still no chance of him being replaced by Zidane mid season?


{Ed002's Note - I think the most desired solution but not the most likely.}

Thank you for the logical post Cheshire. It sounds like Rice and Haaland are viewed as completing the team. Of course with Ronaldo here for 2 years, Mason kicking on, and the young lads in the academy maybe we don’t need him!

No team is perfect, and most title winners have been lacking a player here or there in a key spot. I expect us to surprise.
