Evening Ed.

A bit out the norm but are you aware of any ins and outs with the coaching staff? Always an interesting way to look at the direction on the field.

Thanks in advance.

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - No, I am not aware of changes to the coaching staff. A scout has recently left but that is noise in the big scheme of things.}

Nice one Ed. Enjoy your weekend.

{Ed002's Note - And you Peter.}



26 Jan 2020 00:50:23
Ed, during the summer Justin Kluivert was named as a possible target of Ole’s. Is he still of interest to Utd or was that particular place in the squad filled with the acquisition of James.

Thanks in advance.

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no interest from MU.}

if this really is the end of the Griezmann saga, so you think Man Utd will completely move on or do you think the move could be revisited in a years time. Maybe this will mean Martial is given another year to sort his head out. (Won't hold my breath though, the lad seems to lacking in the mental strength department).

Peter Griffin

IF talks were ongoing with United and Griezmann i don't see how they couldn't have anticipated this scenario whereby Atleticos ban isn't lifted, something just doesn't seem right.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 07:15:01
I would say that United probably didn't want to pay the full release clause or didn't want to pay it immediately.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 09:13:48
Read ED002 post about release clauses etc.

4.) 02 Jun 2017 11:33:24
Hi all, thanks to the Eds as always for the site. This is purely my guess.

United have decided to hold out one more year for AG because of two reasons, one because of the injury to Ibra and so a CF is now of higher priority and two there is a situation with AG that isn't desirable to the club, perhaps player attitude/ arrogance?

Lukaku looks to be the first choice now, he has prem experience over a number of years and although it hasn't quite proven himself yet in the bigger games, Jose believes he has it in him.
The 'surprise' Jose is referring to is either Neymar or Bale but this will depend on whether Martial is sold and/ or Rashford heads out on loan (not what I want but I can see it happening) .
For what it's worth I also think De Gea will stay but that is just a gut feeling.

Reading through Ballague's Spain round up.

He says that Rodriguez would prefer a move to us or Chelski and that there have been offers from England just wondering if any of the eds know if one of those offers came from United?

He did also say that Liverpool were interested but they were not his preference, which was nice to read


Was he chatting the proverbial again?


Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any offers since last summer that involve a straight cash deal.

Real Madrid did not want to sell James Rodrigues in January but they will listen to any very high bids made for the summer. Four clubs come in to the picture - Manchester United because they are seen as stupid enough to pay what most sides would see as way over the odds for the player who some would describe as a childish flake; Chelsea as the player has suggested himself that he would like to play for them and live in London - but they won't be held to ransom and have major concerns about his ability to settle in the very culturally different England - but this may not deter an offer; Juventus - but he is one of several potential targets and their interest is elsewhere; and Bayern Munich now that Carlo Ancelotti is heading there - again they won't be held to ransom. However, whilst the intention is that he will be sacrificed in the summer to raise funds, there are some significant things going on in the background that could have an impact on whether or not he will be leaving during 2016 - so we need to wait and see but I expect circumstances to be such that they may listen to offers. But they could block any move until the end of the window awaiting the outcome of a number of issues. His agent has spoken to three sides about James including Manchester City, Juventus and Chelsea to try and move things along. Manchester City are unlikely to be interested. Real Madrid has also spoken with PSG through a third party whilst discussions were being held over another player. They could bite later in the transfer window if he is still available. Chelsea have also spoken with Real Madid but are frustrated that they are running hot and cold over whether or not they will let him leave this summer and concerns remain over price and a move to London.}

“After the Paul Pogba deal in 2016, Man Utd set a policy which limits agent fees in any future player deal to 5%. “

Seen this and just wondering if this is a policy the club has actually enforced.

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Cheers Ed, didn’t know what to think of it to be honest.

Wouldn’t put it bc past the people in charge to bite their nose off to spite their face.



31 Jan 2020 23:18:08
Can’t wait to see him hold the ball up for the first time. Can’t remember the last time it happened. Zlatan possibly.

Peter Griffin

1.) 01 Feb 2020 12:38:23
Get your Watford tracksuit on 😂🤣.



22 Jul 2019 10:58:40
Good morning

Do you expect Man Utd to get the Bruno F deal done, will some players have to be moved on first?

Peter Griffin



28 May 2019 00:12:20
I think Depay would be a great option for us down the right.

I’m probably wrong, usually am, but I’m thought I remembered there being some form of clause in the deal when we let him go to Lyon.

Any thoughts?

(Maybe one of the Ed’s could tel me if a clause existed, I believe it was first refusal or that United were to be informed if an acceptable offer had been submitted)

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - There are no clauses, references to butterflies or anything else to concern yourself with.}

1.) 28 May 2019 00:22:25
Just “no” would’ve been fine.

2.) 28 May 2019 01:11:54
He never played on the right when he was here. And I don't think such a media conscious player is what we need right now. It is enough of a problem already.

3.) 28 May 2019 00:52:39
When we sold him to Lyon we agreed a buy back clause and also a sell on clause. he's not had a very good season though compared to last season. I'm sure he's only scored 8 goals where as he scored over 20 last season.

4.) 28 May 2019 00:57:04
Sorry my bad he's scored 12 goals in all competitions this season. He does seem to get his fair share of assists though. I'm not sure we are interested though 🤔.

5.) 28 May 2019 06:20:11
Yeah another player with poor attitude.



24 May 2019 22:21:43
I’d like to think that United are considering Ricardo of Leicester at some level.

Even as a plan B to WB.

. I’d prefer Ricardo, the lad is disciplined.

Peter Griffin

1.) 24 May 2019 23:13:58
Prefer him to AWB? Why?

2.) 25 May 2019 08:07:53
I’d take Meunier and let him play alongside and help develop Dalot who was our brand new shiny teenager last summer for £20m and teach him the game.

3.) 25 May 2019 11:05:56
Only price would make him a better signing, the only other who comes close to AWB is TAA at Liverpool and we ain’t gona get him.

4.) 25 May 2019 11:21:29
Same. Meunier would cost about 30 million less which can go into the centre back fund.

5.) 25 May 2019 11:42:30
If we're looking at attacking full backs, then Ricardo. If we want more defensive-minded full backs, then AWB.

6.) 25 May 2019 14:32:16
Nou, AWB is as good going forward as he is defensively. He was a winger until coaches at Palace discovered he’s very good at tackling.

7.) 25 May 2019 17:07:31
Maybe at Palace he just doesn't get the opportunity to get forward as much, which is fair enough. Haven't really seen him as an attacking threat.

8.) 25 May 2019 19:17:53
He has a decent cross on him and can get past a man, pace to burn. He reminds me a bit of a modern day Ashley Cole, but less physical and more technical to suit today’s game. Saying that if AWB achieves half as much as AC he’d have a great career.

If we needed a short term solution Jose Callejón would fill the gap nicely.

Not surprised by that one bit. He’s got the tools to go far.

Mumbles like I’ve already said. My point was the fact we refused to give a young player a road map. That’s what I find amateurish. If you read again you will see I make that very clear.

My point wasn’t about wether the player should be signed or not. Wasn’t even to do with the amount of money being mentioned.
United clearly want the player As they are offering instalments but just fly by the seat of their pants when it comes to negotiating. Why would you not supply a road map for a young player and why would the player even need to ask for this.

Kid should go to Dortmund.

I read earlier that they may also look into blocking the access that pubs have to stop that.

Nice one BFRO. 😒

Story is completely true btw, ( including the tracksuit 😂) I’m not claiming a store attendant to be a credible source. Just thought I’d post it for the old romantics still left on here. (can’t beat a bit of inside knowledge from a store staff! )

Anyway got to go, That giant chicken is outside and after a scrap.

I am in Lisbon with my wife celebrating our wedding anniversary (got back home just in time to watch the derby) and we went to Sportings stadium on Thursday as I like to buy the tracksuits of the local teams. One of the store workers was holding a pack of pre-made letters for shirt printing for ‘B. Fernandes’ Jokingly I said to him that he won’t be needing them as he was coming to Manchester. He said “Yes, but we need them for tomorrow”.
