Any chance of Memphis returning do you think guys? I'd rather him than Douglas Costa.


1.) 05 Jan 2019 03:12:14
I don't see why he'd want to. He wasn't treated too good by the fans or the players here and was used as a scapegoat for our poor performances at times. He's gone on to become a very good player, but I can't see him coming back.



09 Aug 2018 12:08:27
Late double deal for Toby and Danny Rose?


1.) 09 Aug 2018 12:47:17
Yeh there having there medical as we speak.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 13:01:57
And they are also giving Alli on a season long loan with option to sign for 20m.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 13:18:49
No chance of levy strengthening a top four rival with one player ket alone two.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 13:42:06
Sailor, clean your ears out. We were offered the tea lady Sally on a loan deal. Woodward is considering as she marketed along with our new bootlace sponsor who are PG Tips.



29 May 2018 19:00:53
Anyone know anything about Diogo Dallot who we are apparently signing? Young Porto right back. His wiki page already updated as a Man Utd player.

Personally never heard of him and I'd prefer we go for his brother Win.

Thank you I'm here all week.


1.) 29 May 2018 19:18:33
His wiki page says he's a right arm cricketer and his current team is man city 😂.

2.) 29 May 2018 19:18:41
Boom Boom Eric 79! I think his brother Win has signed for Huddersfield, or at least I heard he was in talks with the terriers.

3.) 29 May 2018 20:53:54
Win Dallot? I've heard he can turn on the gas.



29 May 2018 13:42:47
Emre Can on a free anyone?


1.) 29 May 2018 13:50:44
Can he cook and clean? If so send him my way.

2.) 29 May 2018 13:57:43
Juve have him pretty much wrapped up. Wouldn't say no mind think he is a very good player. Will flourish at Juve.

Haha FZZ brilliant.



21 Jun 2017 08:11:39
Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.

Hi Ed2 - what are your thoughts on Mr Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford. A case of him not helping himself and wanting out, or a case of the club simply not backing him on the targets he wanted to bring to the club and the changes he wished to make.

If the latter is true, what chance any manager taking in the job, or will the club back OGS as he doesn't have that blue tinge that Jose had from his time at Chelsea?

Finally, any news in where he is going next would be amazing?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - This is what I wrote at th time: "It was a bad move to appoint Mourinho and a bad move for him to accept. He doesn't see MU as a progressive club that will adapt to what he thinks they need. He doesn't like being in Manchester and there are those there who still see a blue tinge surrounding him. There was a major error in taking on Ibrahimovich - it is disruptive with the kids (although one specific issue has been overcome) and he wanted to move elsewhere. Mkhitaryan is a disaster waiting to happen. Pogba's career belongs in Spain or Italy - certainly not Manchester."

1.) 19 Jun 2019 09:42:42
Ed002, have you tried clairvoyance? Pretty much on the money.

{Ed002's Note - Nice girl.}

2.) 19 Jun 2019 10:29:03
Ouch. Thanks Ed. I guess we all have one bad career move in us!

3.) 19 Jun 2019 16:07:31
Have a meeting today with Claudia Wether but suspect might be rained off.



17 Jun 2019 10:29:23
Please can we just go forward in time to the end of the transfer window. quite possibly the most infuriating, irritating and boring part of football.

Player A flirts with other clubs, Player B deciding about future but tweeting clues, feels trapped in a contract they agreed for £250k per week, Player C wants Out but doesn't have the balls to say so as they'll lose certain bonuses.

Can't stand it. Everything that is ugly about football right here. Can't wait to get it out of the way and just watch some matches.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 10:52:33
I agree Eric, wish we could just get back into the season.

I also find during the transfer window this site gets quieter which sucks because it helps me get through those slow boring days at the office.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 11:05:49
Agree Eric. It goes on far two long especially when most of the work is already done throughout the year. If it was up to Maze It would be a 2 week window mid June to the start of July and nip it in the bud.

But alas, the brainless and video game merchants who buy into the whole circus of the transfer market and gossip columns would cry into their chai lattes if that happened.

3.) 17 Jun 2019 12:08:01
maze please explain how that "video game" comment of 2 weeks would make sense?

would you have 5 or 6 medicals done in 1 week

there is a reason its over the course currently as there is more to a transfer than just " yeah let's take him and sign" that and many more reasons.

4.) 17 Jun 2019 12:16:25
Bolger yes a medical can be done in a couple of hours? In your head where are the medicals being conducted? On Mars?

We live in a interconnected society where you can monitor the global market without leaving your couch. You can catch a flight direct from the other side of the world in less than a day.

Name these others reasons? The bulk of signings and market sounding is completed during the season - some agreements likely already agreed in principle prior the season ending. Do tell?

5.) 17 Jun 2019 12:57:05
well maze i think its highly doubtful you could get say for example 6 players signed in a week or 2 unless all the pre medical stuff is done weeks in advanced .

they first have to approach the club with whom the player they want plays for even speak to the agent to see if the player is interested whether that breaks some rules i dunno. then once the fee is agreed the association of the selling club has to then contact the ITMS (how long that takes i dunno)

i am then almost certain fifa or uefa who ever it is have to give the go ahead for the transfer to continue its process

then you have to get the itc from the selling club then sort the players registration as well as a medical personal terms agent terms ect.

i just think 2 weeks wouldn't be enough to get all the deals done in good time.

you might be right it might be able to be done but that would make the window to hectic teams both selling and buying wouldn't be sensible imo

but if your right and it could happen i will hold my hands up.

6.) 17 Jun 2019 23:35:12
Bolger you will find that most of the clubs have contracted each other throughout the year not just in the summer months of the transfer window.

It could be done in 2 weeks in my opinion but that will then cause a lot of issues for external organisations trying to push their on interests.



28 May 2019 12:09:30
Anyone think tuanzebe could be our answer at right back, or is he more suited for CB?


1.) 28 May 2019 12:20:04
He is a CB and is not the solution for a permanent RB. Dalot is a RB and so would be ahead of Tuanzebe in that position.

Utd need a proper RB ie Meunier, AWB etc

Tuanzebe could play in a back 3 but I don’t think Utd are going to play that system.

2.) 28 May 2019 12:29:57
I would be more than happy to offload Jones and let Tuanzebe take his spot in the squad.

3.) 28 May 2019 14:02:24
Would it not make sense, Villa permitting, that he stays there and plays in the Premier League next year?

4.) 28 May 2019 14:09:55
Another square peg in a round hole.

Tuanzebe has done well at Villa, he needs to improve hi passing range ten fold and quick if he’s going to play for us. He’s probably already better than Laurel and Hardy at passing but that’s not saying much. He’s solid though and positionally very good for his limited experience.

Dalot is already a good option for RB and we are also prioritising signing one.

5.) 28 May 2019 18:05:43
No he is a cb.

6.) 28 May 2019 18:45:29
I would be surprised if Smalling/ Jones start ahead of Tuanzebe next season.
Also buying Muenier would be another step in the wrong direction, he had a horrible season this term.

7.) 28 May 2019 19:06:24
Matt Doherty’s name seems to have fallen down the pecking order as a legit RB option. British, proven in the Prem and had a terrific season.?

8.) 28 May 2019 19:41:20
We should be all in defence
de Ligt, Alderweireld, Tuanzabe, Lindelof

Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Bailly.

9.) 28 May 2019 20:20:09
He is in his arse british spenno😂😂.
Really solid player.

10.) 29 May 2019 08:56:38
British ha ha.



22 May 2019 08:46:52
Nice comments from RVP re Ole on the BBC today. Bit of a different perspective, quite refreshing to read.


1.) 22 May 2019 10:29:41
You echoed my exact thoughts Eric.



13 May 2019 20:38:33
Hi Eds- do you know who will be the chosen savour of Utd and be the new Technical Director or are we still to make a decision? Many thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - There is no decision that I am aware of.}

1.) 13 May 2019 22:57:25
Ed 02.excuse my ignorance but could you give a brief guide to what exactly is expected of most technical directors along with what sort of authority they commonly have. If they are for example in charge of/ direct a clubs transfer policy or youth policy then if were a manager I might find it hard to do my job if I felt my wings were clipped.

{Ed002's Note - Technical Directors tend to focus on running the scouting for the first team.}

2.) 14 May 2019 20:43:21
Thanks Ed.

We need a leader and someone who’s a bit tough at the back. He’ll fit in well.

He has to have something if we scouted him and paid £50m!

Why are we fixated on the cost again. Is he good enough should be the main question and that is my main doubt.

Really odd fixation with price of players on here. None of us have any grasp or reference points as to what these numbers actually mean except they sound big.

If Longstaff has been identified as a the next great thing, and if he comes in a runs our midfield for 10 years, what has the fee got to do with us. Leave that to the accounts and enjoy our rebuild.

Before he joined us he was one of the best in the league. Funny how we turn on our own so quickly and so vehemently and want new shiny players.

It’s a tough one as certain clubs, players and environments just suit that particular manager at that particular time. The best managers can go (almost) anywhere and make things work. Personally think Grayson has found his level and should enjoy it. In all walks of working life We are all human and have ambition, sometimes it’s a more difficult decision to admit where we are is best for us and a bigger club/ promotion is not necessarily the right thing.
