Hi All
Haven't posted in about over a year but just wanted to say thanks to all the Ed's for the work they're doing during this window. I read last week via Twitter Reguilon was a done deal but Ed02 eluded to Telles as our first choice. Low and behold it's now being reported that Telles is close to joining us. Regardless of weather it happens or not it's shows us the incredible insight we have on this site via Ed02. It doesn't go unnoticed. Thanks to him and all the other Ed's for making this such a great little community. Now let's just hope for a decent season!

Totally agree!

Telles was the preferred option for a left back, it's true. But Reguilon is younger and at almost the same price, that's why United tried, but as I said a couple of weeks ago, they would never consider a buy back clause, that was known from the beginning. Reguilon's preferred option was United. Still hope we get this over the line.

BBC reporting that David De Gea has agreed a new long term contract at the club and it looks as though he'll sign it when he returns from pre season. Wondering if the Ed's have heard anything on it? Cheers.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 06:41:27
If it's true, it's great news.
The back 5 will be sorted.

Hi Ed's. First time poster but long time reader. Great site by the way. I saw Ivan Perisic handed in a transfer request today. He's been heavily linked with Arsenal recently and if memory serves correctly Ed02 did say our interest didn't end when Mourhino left. So I'm wondering would Mr Woodword be tempted in making a move in the next few days. Would be a bad idea in my opinion as we've more than enough forwards at the moment. Thanks as always!


{Ed002's Note - Inter will make a decision tomorrow and that is likely to be driven by the replacement they have settled on arriving. Manchester United remain keen on the player but not the price. Arsenal are keen but only want a loan.}

1.) 27 Jan 2019 23:16:37
Interesting, hope we don’t do anything silly. He isn’t the right profile for the club right now and his numbers are poor.

Would rather look to Lozano.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 08:55:20
Welcome Hopper, enjoy 😊.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 09:25:13
Maybe Perisic is being considered for the wing back position.
Otherwise taking into account his age, he doesn't seem to be right purchase.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 09:58:15
I really Hope we don’t sign him! Not needed at the club. Defence is where we neee to invest.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 15:28:38
There is a thing with Lozano, railing against authority during his time with Pachuca, being involved in on-field incidents with little provocation, and picking up eight red cards despite at a young age: five with Pachuca, one with the Mexico U-23 team, and two red cards in his first season at PSV. Although a good prospect, i would rather move away from such hot heads, something that the team doesn't want right now.

Hi Ed's,
Firstly appreciate all the work you do and thanks to Ed002 for the transfer target breakdown, very interesting indeed. I've seen a few reports linking us to Saul Ninguez of Athletico Madrid. Just wondering if we have in fact shown an interest in him? I think he'd be a fantastic addition. Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Certainly in the past, Mr Mourinho wanted him.}

1.) 15 Dec 2019 03:55:24
Many thanks for your reply Ed.



16 Jul 2019 17:36:12
Hi Ed's. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we appreciate all the work you're doing at the moment. Lots of reports saying we're preparing a bid for Milinkovic-Savic. Do you know if there's any truth in this and if so would this be along with Fernandes/ that position and not a Pogba replacement. Hope that makes sense. Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks, and try searching. I have no idea what “preparing a bid” means - looking down the back of the sofa for change?}

1.) 16 Jul 2019 18:27:05
Ahhh, that's where I left my £72m, doh.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 18:34:36
Bruno is a target regardless if Pogba leaves. it seems that if Pogba does go then we are after Saul (first choice - very expensive) and Milinkovic-Savic (second choice) . Two great choices imo. I would be very happy with selling Pogba and bringing in Milinkovic-Savic to compliment Bruno.

3.) 16 Jul 2019 18:58:55
Don’t think we will get both Longstaff and SMS. Would rather we signed the one with better technique as none of the players who have joined us in the last few years have improved very much technically.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 09:22:05
Longstaff may be eyed for the defensive midfield role.
He has high work rate and good passing range.
Ideally him and Matic rotating between themselves would be a fantastic option.



10 Jun 2019 02:10:15
Some very interesting comments made by Bruno Fernandes after the nations league final in an interview with Amargo Futbol. He said "I will announce my future in the coming days, it is a club with great history". Hopefully it's us he's speaking about. At least one things for certain, he's not going to City!


1.) 10 Jun 2019 05:18:24
In the past a player choosing these words would make me think he was going to Liverpool. These days though I feel that we are the club defined more by our history than our current success. Sad times, but a good signing if it pans out.

2.) 10 Jun 2019 07:19:26
If reports are to be believed, Woodward, who is our expert on all footballing matters and is an equal of Sir Alex on the football pitch, seems to think that Fernandes is not worth the asking price. 28 goals and 20 assists in one season does not impress our man, who happened to give Sanchez £500k a week, gives Jones and Smalling new contracts and to rub salt into injury, is about to give our prodigious talent, Jesse Lingard, a contract worth £130k a week.
We're in for an interesting summer.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 08:20:06
This was a quote I saw from one person on Twitter and I believe it was made up. AAA you are also better than that in believing Twitter rumours, Woodward is there to get us the best deal not just throw the asking price at teams and overspend, that’s not really how negotiation works.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 12:49:33
GDS2 I looked up Amargo Futbols page and as of last night their first story was that about Fernandes. It wouldn’t surprise me if they fabricated quotes but it seemed fairly real to me.



16 Feb 2019 12:25:47
I have been reading a lot about the concerns after the injuries we've got to Lingard and Martial. Both are huge blows and probably couldn't have come at a worse time but we've shown before under Ole we can still play without those two. My mind goes back to the Arsenal game where our front 3 was Alexis, Lukaku and Lingard. If you put Rashford in place for Lingard then not much else needs to change. My only concern is pushing Rashford our wide again but I feel like it may need to be done as I thought we looked very disjointed against Burnley when we played Lukaku and Rash up top vs Burnley. Would like to know what you all think.

I think Kroos would be too slow for the premier league. A little bit like Fabrigas was when he played for Chelsea. I understand the argument that Kroos will improve the midfield but are we not sick and tired of the big name players being drafted in short term to try and fix a mess . They usually end in the player being on extortionate wages and declining rapidly. I cannot see how Kroos would be any different.

Personally I think top 4 is the priority and we’ve got a fantastic chance to get there this weeekend with Chelsea playing City. I’d be reluctant to change the team very much as we look disjointed without certain players IMO. I’d rather start strong and hopefully have the luxury of a few goals and then start resting the likes of Pogba, Rashford etc. The game against Fulham in my eyes is as big as the one on Tuesday as we can break into that top 4, something that was unimaginable only 2 months ago.

Watching the lower leagues almost reminds me of top flight football from 15- 20 years ago. There seems to be more of a freedom to the way they play and certainly less coaching. Don’t get me wrong watching City is great at times but for much of it I’m bored. This may be an argument for another day but I feel the real entertainment in footballs top divisions is ebbing away with players being overcoached. That’s why I’m enjoying the play offs so much.

Cheers Ed for the reply. I agree with Danny as well. I cannot see him ever being at the level required to play for Man United. I’d be more than happy if he proved me wrong though.

Hi Ed, With this someone now gone and Fred playing so poorly is the club looking to move him on? Or will this not be decided until a manager is announced?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him.}
