Hello ed2

Sorry to borher you but seen a report on the internet so thought to ask you on these players.

Firstly, is Romero likely to leave? If yes which sidees are interested? Read Boca juniors are interested.

Secondly Is Manolas likely to leave and are we really interested? On the article I read it said we and Arsenal are seriously intersted.



{Ed002's Note - Sergio Romero might look to leave in the summer but it may depend on what happens with De Gea. Boca wanted a loan but he had no interest in that - if he moves he will look to move back to Italy.

Yes Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Manolas but it is Inter who will push very hard for a deal in the summer.}

Ed2 are we looking at any keepers then as there seems to be a chance of one of pur keepers to be leaving or is J. Pereira likely to be considered as good enough prosprect ( I know we still have Johnstone but will he make it here) .

Also ed on the sharkopod you said Rojo is still considered as not dependable and it will be tough for Jones to make it past the summer window as a Utd player. So, has the opinion on them changed with their recent form or still the same? Also who is our primary cb target now as Gimenez is unlikely (or impossible)?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Manchester United will be trrying to understand where they are with goalkeepers going forward. They will look to hold on to De Gea but Romero will want to move for game time. (b) Manchester United will look for a different first choice centre back in the summer so Rojo and Jones will slide down the list and possibly out. (c) Lindelof remains very much the wanted player.}

Thank you Ed

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Thanks ed.

Hi eds
Recently when i asked on the madrid site about the players they are interested in bringing, ed2 replied that De Gea is of interest to them so, man utd must be aware of that and thus surely we are looking at keepers to replace ddg if he decides to leave so, ed2 do you know of any keepers we are actively looking at or was Romero brought in to replace ddg.


{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that.}

Hello eds and everyone

With us seemingly looking at a versatile player to cover the AM/ CM/ LM role and Grealish most lkely being priced out of a move I was wondering if we were looking at Julian Brandt. We must have watched Dortmund while looking at Sancho and Brandt was once of interest to us few seasons ago.

Thanks eds.


{Ed002's Note - No. The decision has been taken as part of their who is to leave process that he stays. And Manchester United has no interest.}

Hello everyone

With the season over (except for the Europa) who is Player of the season this year?

I think Rashford and Martial hve done really well but I think Aaron Wan-Bissaka gets my vote for his consistency and fitness.

Most of our other top performers have had a significant time injured and out of the team and AWB hasn't had many if any bad games that I can recall f the top of my head.


1.) 31 Jul 2020 15:30:41
Fernandes without a shadow of a doubt. Take him out of the team and we are languishing around 10th.

2.) 31 Jul 2020 15:33:27
Everybody was crap before he came tbf awb was steady all season but if bruno had not signed martial / rash or anybody else would all have continued to struggle. So bruno gets my vote.

3.) 31 Jul 2020 15:51:30
Let me see, the four players I would vote for would be
but besides those lol I would say AWB has been steadily good all season, Martial and Rashford have not.

4.) 31 Jul 2020 15:35:34
But he has only been here for half a season so I didn't go for him. Bruno has been fantastic.

5.) 31 Jul 2020 15:35:34
Rashford, people forget how desperate things were in november. Rashford stepped up and put in some top performances in that crucial december period.

That week where we beat spurs at home and city away potentially saved oles job and rashford was quality in both.

6.) 31 Jul 2020 16:31:43
Bruno or AWB.

7.) 31 Jul 2020 15:35:34

One player has transformed us so Bruno, no question.

{Ed004's Note - Rashford for me followed by Martial or Awb. No doubt it would've been Bruno if he was here all season}

10.) 31 Jul 2020 17:24:29
AM has been a revelation. That sulky moodiness and lack of engagement has almost completely gone from his game. He has shown work and effort, quality finishing, commitment to win the ball and work with rashford as a pair. My view on him has totally swung around over the course of the season.

Rashford was always one of my fav players. Still is.

Bruno has transformed the whole team.

Greenwood second half has completely changed the balance down our right.

Early on Fred and McTom were solid and dependable (remember them bossing the city game. When we needed a solid performance)

As the season has progressed our captain has brought more confidence at the back.

Such a team journey this year. I would probably go for Martial. Biggest improvement, give him some credit. Hopefully he kicks on again next year.

11.) 31 Jul 2020 17:25:26
Would have said Rashford but since the restart he has been the worst player on the pitch for most games. He has simply not found his form back since his injury.

12.) 31 Jul 2020 18:30:19
For the 2nd half of the season you would have to say that there would be a few candidates.
Bruno with martial and greenwood the other standouts in terms of contribution. Matic Shaw and awb get honourable mentions for me.
In the 1st half rashford awb and mctom were the best of a very poor bunch.

13.) 31 Jul 2020 19:36:30
Shan, we get it, you don't like rashford. But that is so out of wack, worst player since restart? Do me a favour 😂.

14.) 31 Jul 2020 19:52:31
Ok angel you tell me a worse player on the pitch since the restart.

15.) 31 Jul 2020 20:30:05
I don't like rating players worst to best but since the restart
Ddg, fred, maguire, lindelof, mctom
Williams james were all making a lesser contribution than rash imo shan and all were below their form before the season stopped imo.
Yes was not at his best and below his pre injury form but was above average for me in most games.
Still has plenty to learn but i do like his attitude so i think he will learn.

16.) 31 Jul 2020 23:24:38
DDG for one, Maguire another. There's two for you 😂 ken named a couple more.

Blinded by your dislike of a player rash.

17.) 31 Jul 2020 23:44:29
Still managed to get that big goal against Palace despite not being as good since lockdown, he was still decent though, just didn’t hit the heights from before his pretty horrible injury so not a huge surprise.

18.) 01 Aug 2020 01:09:58
Maguire for me. Defended like a Trojan and lead like a leader. If he came through the ranks you'd love him. Just because he cost bit. Could you imagine if it was Smalling and Jones.

19.) 01 Aug 2020 05:53:55
You won't get many agreeing with you Redhope. But I think he has done alright.

Has he got weaknesses? Yes

But since he came in we look a lot better at the back, with more improvement to come.

I also don't know where his attacking headers at corners have gone, lad could have had about 8 more goals this season if he brought his Leicester heading form for corners and freekicks.

Hope he continues to develop and grow. I know he is not everyone's favourite, but he is still pretty good for me.

I think we forget that even legends like Rio and Vidic had errors in them.

20.) 01 Aug 2020 08:50:21
DB and redhope. I think maguire gets into every staying 11 in the prem with the exception of Liverpool perhaps.

But he did make a few errors since lockdown and he was exposed a few times so to answer shans Q of who did worse than rash since restart maguire is one.

I think he has been ok he has helped our defence but because he cost more than vvd that's who is will be compared to by many and to be honest its not a fair comparison vvd is world class maguire is not.

We paid massively over the odds and as a result maguire will be compared to defenders he is in same price bracket as.

Its not his fault we paid 80m.

21.) 01 Aug 2020 09:55:44
Ken on the money there imo.

22.) 31 Jul 2020 17:35:19
Hi Ed. Fair go but the galvanising effect Bruno has had in that half short is quite astounding.

23.) 01 Aug 2020 13:03:52
I think that's pretty fair Ken. I think people would be saying Maguire is a total unquestionable success if we paid 40m for him last summer.

We often get our pants pulled down when it comes to transfer fees. Since Sir Alex has retired we have spent over 1bn on around 400m pounds worth of talent.

That's without factoring in the willy nilly approach we have made to recruitment, buying without a plan.

I think Maguire could be a good player for us, he has already been decent. I think he would look better in the RCB role with AWB protecting him rather than Shaw pushing forward and leaving him exposed at times.

24.) 01 Aug 2020 13:58:51
Has to be Bruno. He was the catalyst, the main reason we finished 3rd. Without him our team probably would have stayed anywhere between 5th-9th. He was that important. How it can be anyone else baffles me.

Just saw the news that Ed Woodward's house in Cheshire was attacked by a bunch of lunatics and criminals, who are so called "fans" of Man Utd. I hope they are caught and punished severely by the law enforcers there.

I feel disgusted and ashamed to say that I share the same community, as a Man It's supporter as them. In all these years since SAF's retirement we have seen many lows and few highs but this has been the lowest point by quite a huge margin.

Ashamed and speechless. Bunch of entitled uneducated idiots our fanbase is becoming and it's making it harder for us to get better at fight for the status of the top dogs in European football.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE news and I would like to offer my sympathies and support to Mr. Woodward.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 02:46:32
Well said Deeps. Sad day.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 03:32:07
Stupid idiots, This will do more harm than good for the protests against glazers and Woodward, won't be surprised if ashton and co. use this as a tool to slamm the protests and songs and paint Woodward as some sort of a martyr.

Also what's with the fans, its either everything's peachy or we are we are burning down houses, there is a middle ground folks.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 05:44:25
Football brings out the worst in people, disgraceful behaviour. Makes United fans and football fans in general look like thugs.

4.) 29 Jan 2020 07:37:52
Totally agree Deeps, we are frustrated and I have done my own share of ranting on here, but personal criminal attacks are disgusting and these people are not wanted as United fans.

5.) 29 Jan 2020 08:20:45
fair enough protest, but do it in the right way.

6.) 29 Jan 2020 11:05:59
They aren’t fans, they are scum. I hope the police can identify as many as possible.

7.) 29 Jan 2020 12:51:57
I am not sure this is so cut and dried. There’s a lot that doesn’t added.

I’m sure it was known about and let to happen or worse.



03 Jan 2019 14:48:54
For the folks wondering about the "clauses (excluding Santa), this is it as per the legendary ed2

Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax) .

There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a release clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties (clubs) are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that football Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes.

These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club in the same country does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country, the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid and may demand a higher figure.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another and about the legal proximity of the buying side.

We have had an upturn in fortune and allround a feel good factor is there surrounding us although the tougher tests are yet to come.
All the players have performed better than they had before Ole took over. But for me the biggest takeaway from these past 3 games is it has brought our old friend Chris (CTR) back to this page. One of the more frequent poster when I first started visiting the site but less and less posts with time. Good to have you back Chris.

We were desperate to get rid of Smalling last summer. He doesn't have a future under Ole. So we are not in a strong negotiating position. On top of that We as a club are known to give big money contracts to players making them hard for most of the clubs to afford. Also Ed2 has mentioned that Roma made a good enough offer and didn't lowball us. It is better to let fringe players leave for a decent fee instead of moving the goal post whenever someone gets close to the asking price.

And to people saying we get ripped whenever we try to sign players from other teams we should remember we go after first choice player that have a lot of value to their sides. Maybe if we went after the dross and fringe players we wouldn't be ripped off so often.

We deemed Smalling surplus to requirement and not good enough. Roma are trying to buy a player up for sale not a first team player that the club is desperate to keep. So we can't play hardballtoo much when the player isn't in high demand either.

Ed are Real Madrid looking at a straight sell or would they be happy with a loan or loan to buy? I know you don't like discussing money as such but what sort of figure do RM want for James for a straight sale?


{Ed002's Note - I really don't want to discuss the money but Real Madrid would prefer to sell him.}

I know ed7. I am saying that in my view 23 at the start of the season is a bit too old. 21 at the start of the season might be better imo.

TAA is much better than all other nominees. Also how are Martial and Grealish still eligible at the age of 24. I think 21 should be the age limit.


{Ed007's Note - Any player aged 23 or under at the start of the season is eligible for YPOTY.}

Tuchel has managed Mainz, Dortmund and PSG; in the top leagues. Both at Mainz and Dortmund, he took over after Klopp who already had establihed a system for the team. Klopp already setup a winning system. At PSG, it took the genius of EMERY to no win the league and even Emery won 1 league title in France. So I don't think Tuchel has proved him to be a TOP class Manager/ Coach. On top of that he falls out with people at the club constantly so he isn't worth the hassle for top teams I think.

I see a lot of similarities between Brendan Rodgers and Tuchel ed1. Both are possesion based managers who start in a high at the team they takeover and slowly degrade overtime. Both seem to be not great at organizing the defence and both seem a bit dumbfounded when their team is on the backfoot. Both seem to have very high opinion of themselves verging on egotistical. So basically Tuchel is a better version of Brendan Rodgers IMO.


{Ed001's Note - very good comparison.}
