Hi Ed, saw your write up the other day in regards to our targets etc, appreciated as always. Just wondering if you've heard anything about Kulusevski who's on loan at Parma? Seen us linked with him a little while ago and seems to be having a decent season. Thanks in advance and also merry Xmas to everyone on here, hope you all have a swell holiday.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - Parma would like to take him - and Parma say Inter have been watching Dejan Kulusevski (AM/W) and talking with Atalanta - and that numerous other clubs have sent scouts to watch him - nobody likes the circa €50M asking price. Inter won't pay that but have players to use in exchange - and that remains the most likely solution - but Juventus have also shown an interest. At the price it would be risky to take him with so little experience.}

Ed, you mentioned a while ago when you gave us your extensive update, that Zaha could be of interest to United. Would that still be the case? Just seeing he's handed a transfer request in and I'd definitely take him here. Thanks in advance.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Hi Ed hope you're well. Just seeing your round up of players United are interested in for the summer, thanks for that. Just wondering, you mention Zaha could be an option, would he genuinely be interested in coming back? Seemed a shame it didn't work out, didn't end very well either, so wouldn't be surprised if he was put off etc. Thanks.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - It will be difficult to sign hiom if Manchester United don't make it to the Champions League and there is serious interest from elsewhere, although price will be an issue. There is no problem with him moving back.}


1.) 20 Apr 2019 12:41:00
I think he’s much better option than some other names mentioned, and somewhat less of a risk.


2.) 20 Apr 2019 14:29:15
Not knowing Zaha or what he’s really like, my impression through the media is that he’s a bit precious and wants to be the main man.

I’d stay well clear.


3.) 20 Apr 2019 15:22:17
Could say that about 90% of current players today.


4.) 20 Apr 2019 18:09:15
“My impression through the media”, good thing raheem sterling doesn't play for us then lol.

You would probably think he is another flashy youngster who thinks too much of himself and committed the crime of buying his muma house instead of one of the best forwards in europe and one of englands go to guys.


 

 

28 Nov 2018 02:34:11
Ed, would you be so kind to share any info you have on Eder Militao of Porto please. We've been linked with him today and seems like a new one to me. Thanks in advance.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach and I am not sure if he could get a WP.}


1.) 28 Nov 2018 08:01:25
United plus any centre back under the sun is an easy story for any paper to write given our obvious deficiencies in the area and fans desperaion for new shiny toys.


 

 

19 Sep 2018 14:21:09
Over the last few days we've been linked with Lucas Paqueta at Flamengo, any info on this Ed? Apparently we are looking at a January deal, can't say I've ever heard him really. Thanks.

Elvis

1.) {Ed002's Note - It is an interesting question and I am surprised no one has aked before - but I guess few seem interested in transfers nowadays - just whining. Lucas Paqueta has been watched recently by Manchester United (or more precisely, on behalf of Manchester United) after advice taken from a third party. There was interest from several parties in the summer but the only direct approaches for the player I was aware of then were from Benfica (who can't afford him) and Milan (who had struggled to get the attacking midfield player they wanted and made an approach - but due to their finances and what they have to spend they would need to sell Suso to make it viable - but interest does remain still as we move in to the new season. Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid all looked at the player on more than one occasion but none has shown any interestedntaking it any further at this time - he would be a replacement for David Silva at Manchester City but they have yet to agree how and when he will exit the club - and would he get game time? There is now interest growing from elsewhere with PSG looking at him as a more attacking midfield player than Rabiot who will be leaving, but space would need to be made by a side that is overrun with wingers at this time and having to play people out of position. Barcelona have had him watched and may look again now that Coutinho has taken Portuguese citizenship - although UEFA could yet object.}


2.) 19 Sep 2018 15:23:11
Interesting, thanks as always Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 19 Sep 2018 15:37:31
In your opinion ed, is he worth a punt? (I have no info on him beyond you tube) and if so, how much do you expect him to cost the buying club?

{Ed002's Note - No, the feeling of some who have looked at him is that the English game would not suit a player interested primarily in tricks. You can see him end up in the stands on a regular basis. I would rather stay away from the finances for a while on the MU pages.}


4.) 19 Sep 2018 21:03:15
Cheers ed, he does seem like a Nani type on YouTube.


5.) 20 Sep 2018 11:45:17
Not suited to our league and specially our style of play. And I think he likes to play on the left wing. Everything we don't want, so basically it's a done deal.

Ed, I know you've been getting question after question about Fernandes, but in your opinion, where do you think he'll end up? No worries if you choose to ignore. Thanks.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to make predictions Elvis.}

Elvis, how's the weather in Memphis?


 

 

17 Dec 2018 15:51:34
So until it's mathematically impossible for us to reach top four, it looks like nothing will change, regardless of results. I think we can all agree that's ridiculous, but it's United so no surprises there. Only us fans seems to be paying the price as usual. So where do we go from here? I doubt we will we make big changes in Jan, maybe sign one at most, maybe let two go, something like that. No big scale changes due to the inevitable departure of Jose at the end of season. We won't win anything, limp to a 6th place finish at best IMO.

So how could it be better? How could it be more bearable and maybe have something to look forward to again. I think the only way for this, is to start blooding the youth and going for a young vibrant, fearless team. Something Jose has given up on it seems. Stick with them, stick with a core team and leave the others who have had chance after chance and constantly let us down. Bring though, Gomes, Greenwood, Chong etc. Play Dalot, Pogba, Martial, Rash, Pereira. This is why I'm sort of hoping at some point, Nicky Butt gets a chance to step in until the end of the season, the youth teams are the only teams who actually play like we should play. He's give them a chance and then whoever comes in next year, will have decent foundations. Jose might make us think our squad it terrible, but it's not. They are better than this and yes they should take more responsibility, but he doesn't inspire confidence in anyone.

Combine all this, a few decent signings in the summer and hopefully a good DOF and manager (Poch please) and next year could could be the exact opposite to this one. At the mo, it's hard to care, when it seems like everyone at the club doesn't. Its been a waste of a season and it doesn't feel like I'm supporting the same United I have all my life. It's bizarre. So fingers crossed something like this could happen, because at least it would be trying something different to what we have seen this year and going back to our clubs values. I can get over yesterday, but I can't keep seeing our club constantly being dragged through the mud and turning into anything but a football club. So here's hoping.

Elvis if only we could return some players to sender, it's now or never.

{Ed025's Note - love it leahy..


2.) 17 Dec 2018 18:50:37
Some suggest Jose wants sacking, but they have suspicious minds.


3.) 17 Dec 2018 18:53:25
More likely another season in Heartbreak Hotel.


4.) 17 Dec 2018 21:09:14
Especially after a "Blue Christmas "


 

 

28 Nov 2018 19:17:44
Have a question for you guys and i'm only playing devil's advocate, so don't kill me.

If by some chance we won the champions league this season, would you give Jose another year? Or would you get rid regardless, like LVG with the FA cup. Merci.

Elvis

1.) 28 Nov 2018 19:37:49
If by some chance! There’s as much chance of your namesake being found working in Tesco’s. But if we did, then yes I would kiss his feet.


2.) 28 Nov 2018 19:41:37
Champions league is a bit different to the FA cup. We've only ever won it 3 times. If Jose won that, he'd most definitely be staying.


3.) 28 Nov 2018 19:45:57
Elvis,

We have almost zero chance of winning the CL, but if we did then obviously he stays.


4.) 28 Nov 2018 20:56:23
Jose won't be staying even if he pulls off a miracle champions league win.
He will be fired before the end of the saeson or he will leave in the summer for another job.
If he wins the cl by some extraordinary set of circumstances it won't make any difference imo he will still leave in the summer.


5.) 28 Nov 2018 22:01:50
Elvis, . Your the devil in disguise.


6.) 28 Nov 2018 22:45:29
It is only theoretical as it will not happen but, but but. If he won yes I would still get rid as he would see it as perfect confirmation of his prehistoric tactics.
Any one on here queuing up for a few more seasons as good as this one.?


7.) 28 Nov 2018 23:00:19
Don't be cruel leave Elvis alone.


8.) 28 Nov 2018 23:17:36
Ok I'll let it be.


9.) 29 Nov 2018 01:38:52
After winning the ecl jose would be ready to step on some blue suede shoes. Watch out Pep!


10.) 29 Nov 2018 15:37:03
Ken,
I think January will provide an indication to the Summer. If JM is allowed to spend and sell then I don’t see him going. If little happens in terms of the transfer market in Jan I’ll agree.


11.) 29 Nov 2018 15:52:10
onto the beatles now leahy?


 

 

19 Oct 2018 22:41:17
Chong once again standing out for the U23's tonight, hopefully he'll get a chance this season at some point. I'm sure they don't want to rush him, but seeing as we lack anyone who can play down the right really, I don't see the harm. Could bring a bit of balance to the side.

Elvis

1.) 20 Oct 2018 07:59:35
Agreed mate he doesn't look far off does he.


2.) 20 Oct 2018 13:26:25
Missed the game did Gomes play and if so how was he.

Just wanted to say congrats to Andreas Pereria getting called up for the next Brazil squad. Been great since the start of pre season and hopefully will play a big part for us this year.

Ed, just for clarity on this, we are interested but don’t like the price, is that correct?

Dani Olmo wouldn't be a bad alternative if we can't get Sancho.

Jimenez should be our number one target to play up front. If we were a serious club, we'd go to wolves right now and just give them what they want. He's class, huge improvement from his Benfica days for sure.

TBF to Mctom, I'm sure a lot of us thought he wouldn't really ever step up, but fair play to him, he's getting better and better and actually cares.

As for Gomes, for a small guy he uses his body well and can take it, hope he keep performing.

This is why I'm a bit over transfers this window, we have good youth coming through, yer we need to buy a few more, but it's still exciting.

Hi Ed hope you’re well. Just wondering, with everything you’ve just said, if we have any interest in Milinkovic Savic? I think we did last year and would hope we would consider him as a replacement for Pogba. Thanks.

Elvis

{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho did.}

Koulibaly is not an option and would cost a lot more than Maguire.
