Ed should we complete a deal for cavani do you expect we would still look for a right sided player? Personally think it's a must the squad is so unbalanced in that right side it causes us a lot of problems.


{Ed002's Note - MU are looking at options.}

1.) 03 Oct 2020 22:02:16
Cheers ed wasn't sure if they were going to rely on greenwood in that position.

I'm hopeful for one of dembele or sarr.

With cavani coming in I guess that spells the end for ighalo.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 22:10:13
Do the options have to be over 30 and a free agent Ed? Only joking.



17 Aug 2020 16:00:35
Hi ed just carrying on from a few days ago when I mentioned Filip Stevanovic it seemed to be a little out of nowhere I was wondering if the deal is progressing or if it was just paper talk?

Also I wondered would he be able to qualify as homegrown for us in the future even if he stayed a year with Partizan?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing is completed. He can quaify as HG if he meets the criteria.}

1.) 17 Aug 2020 16:18:59
Cheers ed good to know something is actually happening I'd imagine no rush if he's remaining on loan with partizan the player seems to have indicated he's keen to join on social media also.

I wasn't sure if the player was purchased and then loaned out that would still qualify as a year trained at man utd. I believe it's 3 years between 18 and 21 with him being 18 in September I wasn't sure if 21 is the last year of training or its before 21.

{Ed002's Note - There are two things to consider and not to confuse:
(1) Home Grown: The EPL squad rules are a max of 25 players over 21, of which a max of 17 can be non-Home Grown. The remaining eight have to be HG (spending 3 years between 16 and 21 with an English or Welsh side, regardless of nationality, e.g. Nathan Ake is Home Grown for the EPL). If there are not enough HG players, then the squad size reduces, so if there are only six, the squad reduces to 23. In terms of UEFA competitions, the rules vary slightly with the eight "HG". A maximum of four of those eight can be trained by other clubs in the English and Welsh association. The remaining have to be club developed and trained. So If Arsenal were to recruit Mason Mount, he would fall in to the category of being association trained (by Chelsea) rather than club trained. Again, if there are not sufficient club trained players the squad size is reduced.

(2) Club developed: In terms of "club developed and trained" means that they have spent at least 12 months with the club before the year of their 19th birthday. As such Ryan Sessegnon is not club developed by Spurs.}

2.) 17 Aug 2020 16:36:22
So he would be home grown but maybe not club developed depending on if a loan counts as time at the club or not. He can also count towards 1 of the 4 home grown in regards to champions league/ Europe. Thanks ed hopefully we can get it over the line seems to be a good prospect.

3.) 17 Aug 2020 16:47:51
HG is never an issue for us.

4.) 17 Aug 2020 17:02:15
I would like to share with you something about this kid. Today I saw his "best actions" tab for the past year in the platform I work. He looks really sharp, knows a good pass and a good cross. Very good technique. I know we may loan him back, but from what I've seen, he looks as a player who can get into our team (looks better player than James) . The only problem with him is that he is played at LW, rarely at RW. Just a note, I haven't seen any videos of him in YouTube. If you want me to chek how's he doing in certain area or movement (like covering, of the ball movement, shooting etc. ) tell me and I'll look how he has done. Looks very, very promising.

5.) 17 Aug 2020 17:08:20
And one more thing, someone said that Ed002 said he is a left footed. Stevanovic is right footed.

6.) 17 Aug 2020 17:41:39
Ziko87, Left footed is another kid in the name of Mohamed Ihattaren.



14 Aug 2020 16:47:10
Serbian newspaper Repulika says we've agreed a deal for Filip Stevanovic which will mean him staying another year with Partizan before joining us next season.

Don't know much about him but I think I saw on the Liverpool site ed002 said he was one for the future so if true could be a good deal if true.


{Ed002's Note - That would be a fabulous buy. Filip Stevanovic (AM/LW) Partizan Belgrade kiddie who has been watched by Nice, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund, Torino, Liverpool, Lazio, Atlanta, Herta Berlin, Werder Bremen and Southampton. And I suspect others. Nice are working on a deal to take him in the summer – don’t lose sight of him.}

1.) 14 Aug 2020 17:21:37
Good post brooks. Cheers fella, not come across anything til this.

2.) 14 Aug 2020 17:23:24
Cheers ed! Hopefully true then!

3.) 14 Aug 2020 20:31:54
Brooks I’ve just saw sports witness post an article where the Partizan Vice President said we were negotiating with them. I’m not sure if we signed him that we could loan him back though as he isn’t 18 yet?

{Ed002's Note - That would not be a problem.}

4.) 14 Aug 2020 21:00:48
ED002 is his potential that good that then. Not often you have used the word Fabulous buy, unless your being sarcastic at all?

{Ed002's Note - He gets the thumb of niftiness. He has enormous potental.}

5.) 14 Aug 2020 22:01:54
Thats good then ED002. i'm surprised we have this transfer off. Did Utd offer him an extortionate amount of money?

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know.}

6.) 14 Aug 2020 22:01:54
Thats good then ED002. i'm surprised we have this transfer off. Did Utd offer him an extortionate amount of money?

7.) 14 Aug 2020 22:47:54
We are still Man Utd. I’d leave Belgrade occasionally to play for us!

8.) 14 Aug 2020 22:48:14
United apparently have signed him and he's being loaned back for the season.

9.) 14 Aug 2020 22:52:48
Know nothing of him. Is He RW, LW, forward?

{Ed002's Note - RW/AM.}

10.) 14 Aug 2020 22:58:22
Thanks Ed.

11.) 14 Aug 2020 23:25:24
This transfer is over? Because some says otherwise.

12.) 15 Aug 2020 00:30:05
If he’s RW then maybe we will patch that ‘san how role for another season and bring him in then?

13.) 15 Aug 2020 07:12:59
Ed002 is he a LW or RW? You've posted both in different posts.

{Ed002's Note - He is used mailnly on the LW.}

14.) 15 Aug 2020 10:33:33
Player has commented on his Instagram with a picture of him at old Trafford and the side eyes wether he's confused by or confirming rumours I wouldn't know.

Might be some legs in it after all!



30 Jul 2020 14:24:51
Seen us linked with Ryan Ait-Nouri not sure left back is a position we desperately need to improve is there any interest ed?


{Ed002's Note - There is interest in him from elsewhere and he is very well thought of - but not MU at this time as far as I know.}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 15:00:02
I've heard good things ed as I said didn't expect us to be going for a left back thanks for the info.



05 Jul 2020 12:43:12
Ed you mentioned facundo pellistri a while back for right wing I've seen an article from andy mitten a journalist well connected to United saying he's a player were looking at and taking advice potentially from Diego Forlan who's currently the players coach do you still think he could be an option for us?


{Ed002's Note - I do think he is an option. Facundo Pellistri (RW) Newcastle, Maritimo, Manchester United and Oviedo have all looked Pellistri but a Work Permit would likely be difficult to obtain in England unless paying over the odds.}

1.) 05 Jul 2020 21:30:53
Would buying him and loaning him out be an option for him and us?

{Ed002's Note - The preferred destination will be Spain and he will be offered around there.}

20 Apr 2021 22:43:45
I think the most important question to Ed is you've said we are one of the key players in this with the resignation of Woodward do you see this as us backing down? If so can our short term future we salvaged? If its too early to be able to tell I understand also.


{Ed002's Note - No, he has resigned because of this, that is all. Liverpool and Manchester United are behind this and need to see it out.}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 22:58:08
All English clubs announced they are leaving interesting to see what happens to the owners.



20 Apr 2021 15:32:01
Eds do you think they expected the English fans to be as upset by this as they clearly are?

Also if it was to fall apart do you think the current owners/ chief execs of the 6 can continue to be in charge of the clubs?


{Ed002's Note - Yes. Owners cannot easily sell clubs. So even though the main protagonists at Manchester United and Liverpool may not be popular, they cannot simply walk away.}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 15:44:45
Ed, obviously you've said tbi s was coming for years.

Are you surprised by the reaction? Fans, government's, organisations uniting?
Are you surprised by how the club's have gone about it?

I have a feeling they knew it would be a disaster, but once the idea is floated Once, it's easier in the future to try it again.

{Ed002's Note - Not at all. Unlike the other plans where there has been at least some co-ordination this is FSG carrying out a threat they made after the LFC/MUFC Project Bigfoot failed last year.}

2.) 20 Apr 2021 15:57:26
So we're not even the main villain in this? We're just an evil henchman?

Very disappointing.

Have you been able to get a reaction from any players involved within these clubs? Do you think they will just concentrate on the football and let it sort itself out, or do you think they will make their voices heard?

3.) 20 Apr 2021 16:09:06
Yeah I get that ed and appreciate the feedback obviously I tried to frame the question in a way you could answer rather than asking you to guess the owners choices if this wasn't successful.

Personally I think they will be putting themselves in a place where they will need to look sell if it does not go ahead the difficult question is who can afford man utd/ Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - Selling would not be easy.}

4.) 20 Apr 2021 16:15:26
Shall we start a crowd funding to buy 51% maybe we can find someone a company to support the other half?

5.) 20 Apr 2021 16:16:48
We have been protesting against the Glazer's for 15 years, not sure they will be bothered what the fans do.

All the other protests we have conducted have essentially been well intentioned but toothless, the Glazer's know that as long as the team is relatively successful on the pitch, the fans will tolerate a lot.

6.) 20 Apr 2021 18:40:27
The glazers will go nowhere and I severely doubt whoever could buy them out wouldn’t want the same as them right now.

7.) 20 Apr 2021 18:44:53
All the owners are serious business men. They know that if they could for example run live matches from their own inhouse channel they would be making absolute fortunes.

Imagine if Utd charged £1 a match. Then with 100 million worldwide watching each match. you can see how it dwarfs the current tv deal income received. Then add their ability to run adverts too.

So the commercially astute owners in purely business terms are underselling their product as thinga stand.

To get them to back down they will need a lot more money and even possibly concessions re streaming matches live.

Ethically in terms of how football operates as a sport of course what they have done is abhorrent.

The legalities of their actions and any counter measures could take years to sort out if dragged through the courts. At some point there will probably be a compromise which won't suit all parties but ultimately will be necessary.



04 Oct 2020 22:55:38
Got a feeling we could get dembele tomorrow Barcelona want Depay and Garcia and need cash and Koeman doesn't seem to see him as an option above Pedri or Trincao.

Lyon have even come out ant said Barcelona have an agreement with Depay.

I'll thank the eds now in advance of the madness tomorrow got a feeling this could be the busiest site for deadline day.




03 Oct 2020 20:15:01
Dembele (loan with option) / Ismailia start (until Oct 16th to complete)
Stevanovic (stays on loan at partizan)

It's far to late in the window and some of these should have been completed earlier but if we end the window with this than I don't think it's a bad window.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 20:41:18
Thought the Telles deal was off after we refused to offer more than £10 million.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 20:47:01
If this deal doesn't fill you with a foreboding sense of dread and rage in equal measure then I'm lost for words!

The stench of panic and desperation is confusing some brains.

This is not a bargain, he will be one of the highest paid players in the premier league and his agent will get a fortune as well.

For what we are paying him he should be one of the leading goal scorers in Europe not warming the bench or playing back to an 18 year old kid!

He only made 14 league appearances last season and 21 the year before. For the money he's being paid there should be an expectation that he will one of the leading goal scorers in the league. Judgement must not be comprised due to a lack of transfer fee.

This deal has disaster written all over it. It's a massive risk which just isn't worth taking and every other Club in Europe thinks exactly the same. Come back to me when you've give it some serious consideration.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 21:12:08
Matt Judge saw Cavani had 2 million twitter followers compared to Sancho's 500k and decided it made economic sense.

4.) 03 Oct 2020 22:59:40
DLIB. Cavani IS on of the leading scorers in Europe. 2 in 3 for his last club. 1 season with injuries.

Rather than doom him to failure, why don’t we just wait to see how he gets on?

5.) 03 Oct 2020 23:00:39
His wages are totally irrelevant to us. Whilst
we may give Woody and Judge grief for Their football acumen, they are money men and they’re more qualified to judge club finances than any of us.

Let’a judge him on can we he contribute to goals surely?

6.) 04 Oct 2020 01:08:27
Wazza until 2018 he hadnt injuries. Then on 2018 he started to have muscle injuries and if i am right he had 12 in the last 2 years.
It is obvious that injuries came with age and at 34 and in a more physical league things will become worst.
I can't see the logical behide the "wait and see".
You can buy Ronaldo and suddenly he starts missing games because of injuries he never had before. Then you can buy Bale and Cavani and suddenly they have no injury issues. Here we speak about possibilities, what s the possibilities for our second example? Slim? Close to zero? that's why the doom him in failure.



01 Oct 2020 21:41:52
Few rumours linking us with facundo pellistri Lyon also apparently interested we would apprently be willing to let him finish the season at penarol something Lyon wouldn't be willing to do.

I know ed said he's well thought of and we may be interested earlier in the summer if we managed to get him and stevanovic it would give us good options on the wings in years to come

Also If we went for dembele he would be good cover on the right side for the second half of the season would also mean Dan James could go on a loan/ loan with option.


1.) 02 Oct 2020 11:07:42
I would forget about it. They are struggling to sign a £2.50 left back.

2.) 02 Oct 2020 11:56:14
DanJames, based on our transfer experts at the club you can count on them to do something silly and spend more on someone unknown rather than on someone who could improve the first team.

You do remember smalling playing for us don't you? I think most people forget what he was like when he played for us and just think well he's doing well in italy. Evans has improved and probably would have done the same for us under mourinho.

Our current options aren't great maguire isn't just slow in pace it takes him a age to decide which pass to make so by the time he does make it the player has a defender or 2 around him.

Bailly can be rash can be good but too often injured.

Tuanzebe difficult to judge the kid hasn't had a good run in the team when he's played mostly he's done well the odd mistake it when you don't play regularly that happens

Lindelof probably our best defender good passing just need him to play more forward passes his weakness is he isn't dominant in the air he's not bad he's just not dominant often get blamed for his defensive partners mistakes.

Thank god for that a defence of mings and maguire is bad enough to make you cry, might as well get smalling and Jones back!

Would be very happy if we managed to get rid of pogba on some sort of loan with obligation or even a trade dembele maybe? Managing to finally move on Jones would be great and lingard needs to go. With rojo in the last 6 months of his deal we might actually be able to strengthen the defence next year.

All of those players out of contract should be let go only one I'd consider keeping is cavani but that will be based off how he does this season. also ed wouldn't Mata be on the list?

My team is:



Coady (for a back 3)







Preliminary squad:
Maguire - prove fitness
Henderson - prove fitness

Henderson and maguire the extra 2 if they prove fitness if not probably maddison and tomori.

Look at the stadium it's old there been no work done on renewing the outside or the inside, there's no fan areas around the stadium for match days. The training ground is the same they sold the naming right for it but never improved the place. And that's without going into the money.

Not necessarily the 350m would most likely be included in negotiations and the price reflect this eg 2.5bn plus debt or 3bn no debt.
