Any light on the year extention of Lingard? Seems pointless I'm sure I seen on here that you can't use the year extension to profit on a player.


{Ed002's Note - Manchester United may extend to save money on purchases - you are correct, simple profiteering is not allowed, but if he were sold the funds could be shared with the player and his agent.}

1.) 31 Dec 2020 14:43:54
Cheers for reply Ed.

2.) 01 Jan 2021 09:55:06
Hi Ed, could you explain the profiteering a bit?
Is profiteering any sum the player is sold for, or does the sum he was bought for has some influence?
For example, if player was bought for 20mil and sold for 21mil, would that 1mil be considered as profiteering or the whole 21mil?

{Ed002's Note - No, profiteering would be extending a contract that is about to run out simply to sell a player.}

3.) 01 Jan 2021 19:52:51
Ed with jesse n pogba being in similar situations with there contracts if united used either of them in player swap deals would they then have to compensate them for leaving the club. Would it also fall into profiteering?

{Ed002's Note - You cannot force players to move.}

4.) 01 Jan 2021 19:55:01
Thx Ed and HNY

Qq what’s the plan for Mata and Matic?

Looks like a lot of outgoings, the club need a plan.

{Ed002's Note - They will talk to Mata and have already agreed a new contract with Matic.}

How's everyone feeling for Sunday and the rest of the season Then?

Still think we're a bit short of strength and depth. Need at least 4 signings in my opinion, aswell as get rid of the deadwood.

Were worse of as a squad than this time last year but still time to go to make signings.

Hopefully EtH can get the best with what he's got until he gets what he needs to get us back to the top.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 16:58:31
It depends on what your hopes are.
We are miles short of the top 2 imo.
The rest for me are pretty much the same.
It will be a very tough season.
We are short on quality right now no escaping that.
Ideally all our business would be done by now but it's not as easy in real life as it is for our kids on here that play it all out on a computer game.
Hopes for me are
Good cup runs
Top 4
Better to watch
Players playing for the shirt and fans
A better home record
I'm sure by the time the window closes the squad will look a little different.
I'm not confident but for the 1st time in years I'm hopeful.
Should be good craic watching it unfold.
We have rescued the team from the criminal ineptitude of the Norwegian clown and RR so for me it's all win win this season imo it can't be any worse than last season.
Eth has a he'll of a job to do.
Only time will tell if he can deliver improvement. I'd like to think he can even with no more signings.
So it's all upside as far as I'm concerned.
Unlike many on here I'm not an expert on running football clubs I just find it hard to believe with all the expertise we have on here not 1 person is making a living from the game they have all the answers to. ?‍♂️.

2.) 04 Aug 2022 17:09:15
Love it Ken
Here’s to a season full of progress ??.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 17:16:01
Not at all confident as long as McFred are starters. The fact that we’re so short up top is a little worrying too.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 17:25:14
Similar to ken, also

A defined way of playing, players picked on merit, topm3ffort and application, players improving as they are coached properly.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 17:55:55
What ken said. The End ?.

6.) 04 Aug 2022 18:57:23
Decent football, good atmosphere around the club.

We will struggle at times adapting to a new style and obviously we will have players who can’t do what the manager wants, as it’ll take 2/ 3/ 4 windows to get players out and in to make it his squad. So let’s show patience and back him.

7.) 04 Aug 2022 19:08:45
No ones experts on here just a lot of opinionated fans who love the club and say what they think is best. It's and rumour and banter site after all, just take things with a pinch of salt.

I think 5th or 6th with current squad definitely need the negotiation team to step up and sign players.

8.) 04 Aug 2022 19:28:46
Several people said 2 months ago that the outgoings were more important than the incomings.

I still think that is true. Richard Arnold said to the fans in that infamous meeting down the pub that the dressing room leaks had left the club.

Well here we are a couple of months later and I haven't seen any leaks yet.

Maybe he was right, that has to be a positive move forward.

We need/ needed to get out the bad apples to stop them rotting the rest of the fruit bowl. And that seems to be well under way.

Getting rid of players with the wrong attitude is more important than getting rid of players lacking the required talent.

In that respect I'm hopeful the club can resolve this Ronaldo issue. Whose attitude to himself and his personal preparation is exemplary. Yet his attitude to team work and self sacrificing for his teammates leaves a lot to be desired.

He likes to stand on the shoulders of his teammates rather than trying to bring them up to his level.

That isn't what we need right now. So thanks Ronny for the memories, you'll still be remembered fondly, but don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I still expect us to make two more signings, maybe even three.

I cannot see us ending the window without signing a midfielder and a forward. Maybe two forwards.

Another name that creeped in over the last couple of days is Sergino Dest from Barcelona. Whether United feel they want to re-enter negotiations with them for another player remains to be seen.

However, he could be an interesting option if AWB leaves the club. Obviously he has played under EtH before (which seems to be a prerequisite for signings this summer) . He is comfortable in either full back position, but interestingly is also comfortable playing further forward as a winger on the right. Which means he could be back up for Sancho if needed, or at least another option.

Who knows, it's all speculation until they are holding up the shirt.

I'm feeling excited and hopeful for the new season. I expect to see a different United side this season. A side that works harder, that has a clear plan, that tries to play offensive front foot football, with a manager who gives youth a chance and who picks players based on form and effort in training rather than the name on the shirt.

I like the new rules, such as no phones at meals or team meetings (should be a given, shocking that it wasn't) . Meals must be eaten together and food prepared by club chefs not whatever the player feels like that day. Consequences for being late or breaking other rules.

They might not sound like much, but they are a signs of a tightly run ship with a purpose. Positive signs heading into the new season that things will be different this year.

This was never going to be a quick fix. It was always the case that EtH's first choice 11 this season was going to have 5-7 players who were here last season. While the rest of the squad was going to be made up of the same players who failed last season.

I expect this to be a 2-3 year turn around. I base that on the fact that I think we need at least 15 new players added to last season's squad to give it the level of quality and to have the right attributes that etH needs for success.

Now not all those players need to be bought, but kids given a chance this year will take a couple of years to develop the consistency to be top level performers. While the reality is that we will typically see 4-5 signings each year at most. Obviously not all those signings are likely to hit the heights expected of them.

That means it will be 2-3 years before we have a team capable of closing the gap between us, and City and Liverpool.

A title challenge before EtH's third season will require those above us regressing as much as us progressing. I don't see that happening over the next couple of season's.

9.) 04 Aug 2022 19:52:28
I’m sure by september 1st fred and mctominay won't be the starters its really about who comes in at this point. There surely is no way nobody will be signed it will be absolute chaos if that would be the case.

10.) 04 Aug 2022 22:27:49
After that Henderson interview and the way media were critical of de gea or would be fair to say Henderson was a leak.

11.) 05 Aug 2022 00:18:19
I don't get all the McFred hate. One is a young player trying to make it and in an underperforming team with older experienced pros who have not put in a shift. Mctomminay nearly always gives his all for the team. Jose rated him highly enough to promote him to the first team. Fred is also a player who puts a shift in. He can't be such a mug if he plays for them most games.

12.) 05 Aug 2022 06:56:20
Amused with all the panic. Rather not waste money on average players who then everyone complains sbout and makes it difficult for the club to buy and wait. We are much better than what some are posting here. It will be a tough season of rebuilding and new manager. Give it time.

13.) 05 Aug 2022 08:25:45
I will be there east stand supporting the team as per usual. Its the season start, every team equal. Irregardless of who plays/ starts if they play well or try, they will get the cheers, if crap they will get the stare of dissappointment ( not a fan of booing/ jeering my own teams players) .

Its like any other sport, a crapppy game, misplaced passes etc but if they pop up to score a 96th minute winner off the back of their arse then its a win, all smiles and on to the next game.

14.) 05 Aug 2022 11:44:31
Hopes for the season:

1. at least one young player steps up and makes a real impact in the first team
2. at least one player improves significantly from better coaching
3. we see hard work and commitment from all the players
4. we start to see a style of play
5. the football is entertaining and Utd play on the front foot.
6. no Ronaldo.

15.) 05 Aug 2022 13:12:40
Kevani, one step at a time, let's try and beat Brighton and start the season well.



31 Jul 2022 22:28:21
For me.


Will not be in the squad come 2 years.

My opinion none of them stand out or look upto it.

Maybe bit harsh on few but just what I think.


1.) 01 Aug 2022 01:43:17
Based on today? Laird was really good, Amad scored the goal. I’m not sure about the others, I think we have better kids coming through, Garnacho, Iqbal, Savage and McNeil have higher ceilings in my opinion.

2.) 01 Aug 2022 08:19:47
Agreed GDS2, I think Garnacho and Iqbal look ready to be involved on some level.
Laird's future could be dictated by whether the hunt for a RB bears fruit. He was a bit of a mixed bag yesterday and they targeted him in the first half. Much improved in the second.
Shoretire and particularly Chong haven't done anything to convince me in the times I've seen them across a few seasons.
Amad is useful and unlike Chong does more with the chances he gets but another signing or so and he gets pushed down the list.
I'm sure Garner is decent but he plays in a problem position we need a serious signing in and I imagine he'll also get pushed further down once we make that signing. Although I reckon one strong midfield signing with Iqbal could be an option as I don't see McFred going anywhere any time soon, they'll both start next week.

3.) 01 Aug 2022 10:59:07
A lot of people get carried away when a kid is in and around the first team
I know most of these lads personally as my lad was at the academy with them
Out of all those names you mentioned your totally bang on
The one I rated when my son was there was Zidane but always felt he was too lightweight but had the most technical ability out of all of them
The one the coaches loved though was Shola but I never rated him
Hope they prove me wrong.

4.) 01 Aug 2022 12:46:10
I think Amad is very poor player me don't see what we seen in him to sign same with pellestri.

Only people coming through I think will make it is possibly Garnacho, I think Zidane has a chance also mcneill and Savage haveva chance but slim.

I think elanga will end up at Everton or summit like that and he's probably git best chance of making it out that lot.



06 Jan 2021 22:00:25
Honest opinion here.

I do not think we will finish top 4 and I think we will not win a trophy.

Hard saying this and its not just from this game its just in general.

Hope I'm wrong but honestly just can't see it I think we're still many players away.

I think Chelsea will come good as will. Spurs bother better squad than ours.

City will win league and we still haven't beaten a big team this season.


1.) 06 Jan 2021 22:37:32
I don't think the players are as much of a problem as people think. Maybe just too many players who excel in the left sided attacking position.

2.) 06 Jan 2021 22:47:15
Well finish top 4 minimum. 3rd I think. It’s a cup defeat of course it sucks but they wanted it more.

GDS2 - TBF Elanga hasn't done anything to prove he's good enough and deserve to be around the first team.

I think he wouldn't be around first team if it wasn't because of lack of depth.

Just like Amad and Pellestri I don't think they're ever going be good enough for Man Utd.

Its just fact how everyone is an expert on Malacia since we've agreed a deal and he's the best thing since sliced bread. Saying he's an upgrade on Shaw and telles when no one knows if he is or not.

I hope it turns out to be a good signing.

Just need a RB, CB, CM, RW and ST now.

How is Malacia an upgrade on Shaw and Telles?

In what departments does he suffice as an upgrade? He's 22 year old and only been courted by the likes of Lyon and West Ham along with us!

I suspect it means he's likely to play second fiddle to shaw and be back up. Thus allowing Telles to leave as he's not going to get any better with age.

Signing Dembele is arguably a worse deal than keeping Martial.

Im sure people on here just want to sign people for signing sake, good Job not on the board or we'd be ****ed.

It's only the agents that have said that FDJ doesn't want to leave.

Hes not going to say he wants to leave when he's owed around €17m is he. Barcelona are trying to wriggle out from paying him.

Guarantee he's in a United shirt next week.


{Ed014's Note - and he’ll be the missing piece!

9 assists over the last 3 seasons, you’ve got a gem there mate.

I'm sure united lose out on a % front sponsorship from Adidas if they fail to make the UCL. From that point its probably implemented into the players contracts that they lose 25% reason so many could be on so high wages. But I don't know i'm just a guy, on a forum, in a pub as 4 my labourers didn't turn in as was too hot for them to work.
