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.}

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.



10 Aug 2020 10:01:23
There's only one transfer being talked about at the moment apparently Dortmund have set today as a "deadline" for the deal and will comment about it at 3:30 today. Ed do you expect us to move onto other targets or are we still putting our eggs in the Sancho basket?


{Ed002's Note - I would expect Manchester United to look to someone else if they cannot agree the transfer of Sancho.}

1.) 10 Aug 2020 10:19:22
Cheers ed it might mean we improve a few more positions in the squad if we went for someone cheaper like Chiesa instead so there may be positives.

Are there any other players the club are currently working on we should keep an eye on ed or are they still focusing mainly on trying to secure Sancho?

{Ed002's Note - They are not going to be doing anything with an alternative whilst the Sancho situation is unresolved.}

2.) 10 Aug 2020 10:27:13
I guess we’ll know soon enough.

It’s difficult to say whether they’re bluffing or not. Certainly if they’re able to convince him to sign an improved deal there’s seemingly no reason for them to sell below what they value him at this summer.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 10:32:57
There’s my worry. That we waste the whole summer on this one deal, only for it not to happen and for us to miss out on others. We are so amateurish In our negotiating and yet again it seems as if we think if we wait long enough we can haggle the price down. Unless sancho strikes (he won’t) then why would Dortmund take less? We have a number of areas to address and by previous windows we can only do 1 deal at a time so this saga is worrying. Today may not be a firm deadline but maybe it should be.

4.) 10 Aug 2020 10:42:08
If united pay what Dortmund want they he joins. Regardless of any deadline set by them. The October deadline is the only one that really matters.

5.) 10 Aug 2020 11:14:55
Think Dortmund give the player higher wages if he stays but the length of contract stays the same (lewandowski) - correct me if i'm wrong.
Is it like a bonus for not kicking up a fuss and pushing for a move?

{Ed002's Note - No, not at all.}

6.) 10 Aug 2020 12:16:43
Had to laugh, . Eagle eyed united supporters think they have a sancho update, watching a training session yesterday lip reading fans are convinced ole is saying to matic
More cash.
Its sorted.
Fingers crossed lol 😂.

7.) 10 Aug 2020 12:29:37
Haha. Saw that earlier Scoob. Would love it to be true, but if a deal had been agreed I doubt Sancho would have flown out to Switzerland today for Dortmunds training camp - especially as he was in the UK yesterday.

8.) 10 Aug 2020 12:45:01
Ole was on about extending his own contract.

9.) 10 Aug 2020 15:57:52
ED002 in regards to the reported "10th August deadline" that Dortmund have reportedly set, do you know if there is any truth in that.

I understand that in an ideal world, all incoming/ outgoing transfer would be complete before pre season commences, excluding the impact. of C.V.

{Ed002's Note - They are starting their preseason today which was the driver.}

10.) 10 Aug 2020 16:32:05
Have the Sancho alternatives been discussed on the site?

{Ed047's Note - yes Eric, it’s either Sancho or Sancho 😉

11.) 10 Aug 2020 16:58:12
Chiesa would be a good alternative, would imagine he's been mentioned.

12.) 10 Aug 2020 17:06:57
I don’t expect either Sancho to join Ed 🤪.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣 me neither mate

13.) 11 Aug 2020 00:21:55
Ed002 just out of interest; is there any room for negotiation for Sancho? For example if Dortmund say the price is 100 million, is there anything clever Utd can do to reduce the price to say £80 million?

Does extending the timescale of the negotiation or apparently looking at alternatives affect the price or are Utd's amateurs just kidding themselves?

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund are of the opinion there time is being wasted.}



07 Jul 2020 20:58:04
Quick question don't know if one of the eds or posters can answer, after watching the Chelsea game shouldn't the referee be stopping play when Cahill goes down? Doesn't the ref stop play now for injuries rather than teams having to constantly put the ball out when players fling themselves to the floor.

Personally I felt like willian had plenty of time tomput the ba.


{Ed001's Note - that's a good point, it is not up to the players to put the ball out, it is up to the ref if he thinks it is a bad injury. Players often put it out anyway if it is obvious but it is supposed to be the ref's job to stop play.}

1.) 07 Jul 2020 21:47:57
I thought it was up to the ref. he should definitely have called it and I think I would have been a bigger talking point had there been fans I don't actually think it would have happened had there been fans.

Whilst I can understand people saying willian isn't going to stop I still think there's enough time lapsed between the 2 events (injury and cross) that he knew Cahill was injured and should have put it out but that's a personal opinion.

2.) 07 Jul 2020 21:52:13
I thought it was down to the Ref, but they need to deem it a "serious" injury such as a head injury or suspected cardiac arrest. Not for pulled muscles or bruises.

Otherwise some players would go down "injured" every time another side broke against them. cough cough City.

In a similar way to how some teams like to make "tactical" fouls to stop counter attacks against them.

3.) 07 Jul 2020 22:28:20
He was ready to get a block in or make it difficult and it completely takes him out of the game. you shouldn't get such a big advantage from an injury as this it definitely should have been stopped.

Had he been the striker and nowhere near the play yeah that's fine play on, but he's the defender who's needed to make the challenge.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 22:41:35
Its about time someone scored like that. Putting the ball out is bull. If i was a manager i'd tell the press and rest of the league we won't be putting ball out of play for anyone and we don't expect to have it put out for us.
If any player put it out i'd fine them. Its a load of old crap tbh.

5.) 07 Jul 2020 22:52:59
Agree Ken. Its just bad luck for Palace but it would make it impossible for referees if they had to assess whether an injury was serious enough to stop the game every time a player went down. Unless there is an head injury or something really obviously terribly serious play should continue.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 22:54:40
The player not putting the ball out is choice the ref however should be stopping play.

7.) 07 Jul 2020 23:20:56
No he shouldn't dbrooks. He should stop it if its a head injury only.
Nobody dies of a knock on the shin.
How many times after putting the bsll out does the injured player ever have to be substituted. If he's not dying play ball.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 23:42:45
I think the correct decision was made not to stop it for the reasons stated above. The only thing about this one is that clearly Cahill is not faking the injury to gain an advantage, he would have got to the ball first if his hamstring didn’t go, so the ref probably could have stopped it based on that. He was correct not to though and it is just very unlucky and one of them things.

9.) 08 Jul 2020 03:04:02
I think there needs to be a change to the rules regarding when the physio is allowed on the pitch. If it is a head injury, then the ref should stop play, but if it is just a knock, then the ref should allow play to continue but the physio should be allowed to treat the player on the pitch, much like rugby, and while the player is treated, that player doesn’t count with regards to offsides, and isn’t allowed to play until the ball next goes out. It would allow players to receive treatment immediately no matter the injury, and I think it would stop players feigning injury, at least to some extent, since it would leave their team a player short, for what could be an extended period.

10.) 08 Jul 2020 08:13:55

Totally agree. Feigning injury has become a time wasting art, the fans boo to stop play when the team are in trouble. Game should only be stopped for head or serious injuries.

I would go further and put an off field timekeeper in place, maybe even stop the stadium clock so this time wasting, rolling around is seen not to gain anything and by the physio coming on, without stopping the game, they put their own team at a disadvantage.

11.) 08 Jul 2020 10:18:28
I've been wondering for a while whether football could consider going down the American football route and be allowed to have rolling subs.

That way the game doesn't have to stop at all for an injury. An injured player goes straight off and a sub just comes on. If the injured player is fit enough to continue after receiving treatment then they can come back on.

12.) 08 Jul 2020 10:51:55
Red Man,

Having a clock that stops solves so many problems in football and would help the game to be fairer and more exciting. So many times I spend 10 minutes of the game at OT watching the goalkeeper walk along his line to take a goal kick over and over and the ref does nothing about it. If the clock was stopped he can take all day, all it is doing is giving us a rest before we attack again.

So many of the games since lockdown have had 3 minutes added on at the end. Bearing in mind almost every game before had at least 3 minutes and we are now stopping for over a minute for a drinks break and have extra substitutes you’d expect every game to be at least 4 minutes, probably 5. It is crazy how they just make this figure up.

13.) 08 Jul 2020 11:50:34
A stop clock is a good idea, maybe have 40 minute halves and the clock is only rolling when the ball is in play. you don't need extra time then.

However, that might have consequences on how football is played. Possession would become the key form of defending which in turn will further the gap between the top sides and the bottom sides as they will have lost a tactic that levels the playing field. It will mean the side with the best players will win more often than they do now.

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.

Find it funny how so many United fans seem to not want dembele and the majority of Barcelona fans don't want to lose him.

On his day one of the best players in the world and a fast attacking style like ours would be a better fit for him than Barcelona who's play doesn't require players to be quick

Ed's already said it's a possibility I hope we are trying to make this one happen.

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.

1st goal wasn't his fault team had shifted too far left striker he was covering with Lindelof should have been between him and Maguire but most importantly matic should have stopped the cross we had Shaw matic Maguire and telles around the ball and he got a free cross.2nd goal was Shaw he got out of position then didn't get back so telles had to cover and telles man was the one who scored. we played 3 left backs last night but your complaining about the right side? Rather than those covering that side and a manager who subbed a lb off and left one on who hasn't played for 4/ 5 weeks?!

Ole player matic against one of the most mobile and fluid teams in world football. he also played 5 at the back and 2 defensive midfielders he was just asking them to attack. The second half shows they are a team you need to get at they leave spaces the 5-0 should have shown that but ole was clearly happy to play for a draw and paid the price. but let's be honest this was lost in Istanbul not Leipzig.

The only thing you need to know about how good wan-bissaka I'd defensively is that psg played mbappe on the right and neymar more centrally in the 2nd game this year so they weren't attacking down his side. You also have to remember he actually has no right sided forward in front of him helping him 1 defend or 2 attack even with then most our problems come down the left and he's moving more centrally to cover the team moving across this is when he's "caught out of position". He's not, he's on his own without help covering the space which would usually be more threatening in a space that should have 2 defenders (especially in a team using 2 sitting midfielders)


{Ed047's Note - I’d find it hard to believe that anyone doesn’t think how good AWB is, it’s just as Tris said, how good he could be.

I still think Lindelof is out best defender Maguire got protected earlier in the season because he was "tired" he'd "had a hard time over the summer" during the same time Lindelof has been just as tired with Sweden saying he's desperate for a break while Maguire was getting arrested he was catching a mugger and for the last few weeks he's been passing fitness tests to play for us each week and playing very well when he does get on the pitch if he was English it wouldn't even be a debate.

Might not have to worry about him playing premier league games for a few weeks now anyway.
