Henderson has finally secured his loan back to SU.

Hope he has a great season.

Wilder mentioned that the deal was hard work which is exactly what ED02 said the other day.

Great work again ED02.



1.) 26 Jul 2019 15:08:14
Great news - hopefully he has another really good season.

It won't have done any harm him coming back to Utd for a bit during the summer. Reconnected with the club and staff and got his contract sorted.

2.) 27 Jul 2019 00:06:17
Every chance the club were stalling to see if DDG would stay.



26 Jun 2019 19:55:25
Ed02 - do you know if we have shown any recent interest in Ozan Kabak? I saw your last update on the 4th March and wondered if the situation has changed or if the recent stories are recycled old news.

Many Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - He remains a cheap option being hawked around many clubs.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 22:10:07
Many thanks for the reply ED02. Have a good evening.,

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 27 Jun 2019 14:33:59
Kobak moving to Schalke04.



11 Aug 2018 13:51:48
Ed02 - do you happen to know if we are still in dialogue with anyone regarding the sales of Darmian and Rojo?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Inter remain keen on Darmian and Barnett spoke with Comolli about Rojo.}

1.) 11 Aug 2018 19:09:09
That’s funny, because I need to speak to Rojo about his barnet.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 23:38:18
So we may still see Darmian go to Italy and Rojo to Turkey before the window closes.

Thanks as always for the info ed02.

{Ed002's Note - Stuff will happen.}

3.) 12 Aug 2018 11:05:14
Fingers crossed.

4.) 12 Aug 2018 12:42:33
That is great - thanks for the info ed. I wish them all the best but neither have been able to progress to the level required whilst here.

This will mean more room for movement in the transfer windows to come.

5.) 12 Aug 2018 20:59:59
Well with the Italian window closing this Friday the 17th we will soon know about Darmian.

If he does go i guess we will see Young at RB until either Valencia or Dalot are fit.

6.) 12 Aug 2018 22:18:33
Makes sense. Surprised we let TFM go out but may mean Jose will give Shaw a run out for a few games.

7.) 14 Aug 2018 04:50:05
I agree about TFM but he needs games and once Valencia and Depot are fit we have 4 for 2 and he needs games so this is best for him and us long term.

Great result for the U21's tonight against Rotherham.

Greenwood not included which suggests he will be this Sunday.

Some good performances all round, but Gomes looked really good.

If he is not going to get any game time he needs a loan until JAN and judging by his performance tonight i would say Championship or lower PL club would suit.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 21:19:56
He has all the teckers that's for sure.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 21:27:43
Gomes was outstanding, but I thought Ethan laird was the best player on the pitch. The keeper was also impressive on the ball. It was a really good performance especially second half.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 21:41:11
Watched the game and was really impressed with Laird and Kovar, not mentioning Gomes as i think he is cut above everyone at his age. Looking forward to Mellor as he has some devastating pace.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 22:19:12
Ethan laird did look very good. Will be interesting to see how he progresses. We could have 3 very good young right backs next season at this rate when for the past several years we have been crying out for just 1. haha.

Kovar did look good also, and had the ball gone in off the post he would have started a fantastic team goal with his little drag back and turn in the box.

Agreed Gomes is a cut above the rest. The short cameos he played for the first team in pre-season have shown that. The glaring example being when he turned 3 AC Milan defenders. He needs to be managed correctly and we may have some player on our hands. If we don't sign an AM then i would love to see him given an opportunity at 10 in some games.



14 Jun 2019 20:21:08
ED02 = have you got plans to do a transfer sharksopod for either each team or a joint one again at some point?

KEN - have you heard any further updates from your friend in the legal sector?


{Ed002's Note - Theisea will be to do a few individual versions and then compile the rest - but I am on the road which makes it tough,

1.) 14 Jun 2019 20:59:04
No pog. Not a word. I would assume nothing had changed from what he told me. I don't ask for daily updates its not that type of relationship. He is doing work on behalf of parties feeling with the club he own does for a variety of reasons. He was very confident we would be signing bruno fernandes, and suspected it would not be our only Portuguese signing. He has given me 3 or 4 before and been rigjt except with matts humells whom he said was made a very attractive proposal and was sure to sign.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 21:23:16
Thanks Ken. Guess we all wait until it happens then.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 20:51:58
ED02 many thanks for the update. All the best on your travels then and i await your response when you have more time.



18 Apr 2019 21:00:28
We all keep talking about the top 4 and how important CL football is, but it is looking possible that we may need to finish 3rd at this rate.


1.) 18 Apr 2019 22:12:49
How does that work if an English team wins Europa and champions league, 1 of the winners being outside top 4 and we finish fourth?

{Ed002's Note - Then a fifth side enters. If both win and neither are in the top four then fourth drops out - but it is impossible for that to happen this year.}

2.) 18 Apr 2019 22:21:41
Only if spurs win cl and aren't in top 4. Europa winners are guaranteed a spot from day 1. champs league winners are expected to qualify by league position. I'd like ajax to win champions League.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 22:30:30
Europa League guarantees a spot to the winner only change if a non top 4 wins is that 3rd then has to qualify. It's only if the champions League is won by a non top 4 that 4th doesn't get champions League football but again 3rd would have to go through qualifiying. So basically forget the Europa league it's all about champions league as the winners are expected to qualify by league position.

This is how I believed it to be or have they changed this now to a maximum of 5 from any one league ed?

{Ed002's Note - 5 is the maximum for England.}

4.) 19 Apr 2019 06:55:58
Cheers ed.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 08:17:35
ED02 - why is it impossible for that to happen this year? Spurs could potentially win the CL and drop out of the top 4 and Chelsea the EL and also finish outside the top 4.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, yes it is possible still.}

6.) 19 Apr 2019 11:24:52
Bloody hell i thought the situation was dire already. I know one is supposed to back the English teams in Europe, but sod that for a laugh.

7.) 19 Apr 2019 11:39:35
What a terrible state of affairs, hoping certain teams wins and lose and not qualify so we can have a modicum of success. Big work in the summer, I agree on a post above about Ole wanting to change how we play, I feel Ole wants to be a pressing, high energy team with counter attack, as we’ve gone thru change after change we need to have patience now and Ed needs to let the football men make the football decisions, including transfers.



13 Apr 2019 19:37:59
I know ED02 has mentioned that he is not aware of any approach to WHU about Rice from us but I think he would be a great signing. He was everywhere for WH today.
Covering the back 4 and attacking and looked a yard faster than some of our players at times. If Ole is really looking for a strong core of young English players than surely Rice should be one of the names added to our summer plans.


1.) 13 Apr 2019 20:03:07
Rice and mctom? I don't think we need both.

2.) 13 Apr 2019 21:39:47
I agree with that jred.

3.) 14 Apr 2019 01:24:57
Rice and Jones in the first team, we wouldn't sell many team calendars.

Agree with these comments, mctomm is getting better and better. Rice may have a higher ceiling, but the two would be pretty limiting playing together.



28 Jan 2019 19:25:07
Well Well Well

Chelsea Away. Here we go again.


BIg Games coming thick and fast.

Come on lads.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 19:59:22
Just adds to the monster month ahead of us. Bring it on.

Add Darmian to that list. I can see them all gone by this time next year as well as Young and Matic.

Other Italian resources reporting Bruno will be completed Monday after the Portuguese super cup on Sunday. hopefully we will know more by the this time Monday.

However before then we have the much more important matter of a match against AC and our last match before the premier league kicks off. We need a big game and i can't wait.

Come on lads.

OK no problem ED02. Thanks for your input as always. Are you still travelling and if so when do you think you will have time for a Sharkopod and which team will be first up?


{Ed002's Note - I will be flying to England for a few days only late tomorrow - then away again. Liverpool will be first and Everton second.}

ED02 - have we actually made an offer for Fernandes yet and if do you know how far apart we are in valuations of the player.

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in trying to give blow-by-blow updates.}

What about DOF. he is doing a great job.

The thing is though of all the changes Chelsea created the only one that was a denfensive error from one the back 4 was when AWB followed the ball in towards Lindelof and left Emerson in behind him for a shot. 2 changes were from AP being caught out and one from Pogba McTominay not closing down on. The edge of the box. Whilst it is very earlier days we can see an improvement already and hopefully it will get better and better the more games they play together.

As you say 9 of the 11 the majority of us would pick. I would say that 100% of us would pick the same back 5 now.

McTominay - Pogba will play in midfield and should be the 2. Rashford and Matial will play in the attacking role and 1 in the 3. Who starts up top between the 2 I don’t know but i think it is interchangeable so it should not matter. That leaves the 10 role and right side of the 3.

For the 10 role there are several options. Pogba is 1 but this would mean playing Matic or Fred with McTominay and I would prefer Pogba in that role for now.

Which leaves, Mata, Lingard, AP or Gomes. I would personally love to see Gomes but I not think he will start here, but will be our number 10 by the end of the season. I don’t think it will be AP and Mata is too slow and not industrious enough for this game. So i think it will be Lingard.

For the right side it will be James or Greenwood or potentially one of Rashford, Martial with James on the left.

I think Greenwood will start on the bench and come on late which leaves James,

And that’s our 11. :)

If we don’t get anyone in, i can't believe even our board are stupid enough to sanction pogba’s Sale.

As you say Mort, Lukaku, Darmian and Rojo could leave without anyone coming in. We are now covered in defence and have options in attacking positions.
