Lautaro Martinez being touted as a potential signing for us. Not seen a hell of a lot of him but from what I have seen I think he could very well be a good option for us.


{Ed002's Note - A fantasy wonderland.}

1.) 31 Oct 2019 12:13:02
Fair enough Ed. Thanks for the reply.



07 Aug 2019 13:45:11
Gianluigi Longari who broke news that Koscielny would join Bordeaux 2 months ago is claiming Fenandes deal is done. Also reports he's meeting with the president of sporting to discuss his future. Probably bull but i'm trying to be optimistic here.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 14:02:55
Not happening mate, our transfer dealings are done. We will see a lot of Pereira in that midfield. Also we will see the rise of Angel Gomes this season.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 14:37:42
I'm not sure I get it, if he is a done deal why would he meet the president of sporting to discuss his future.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 15:00:37
We need midfielders, if we don't sign anyone until the deadline and sell Lukaku and others after that, than if I were Ole I would go, this is a joke, nobody deserves to work like this. And we know who's to blame (not only Ed. ) Stil hope we sign one or maybe two ;)

4.) 07 Aug 2019 15:12:05
Patience my friend, club is still trying to close the Sneider deal!
Messi bound to take a little longer than that one.

5.) 07 Aug 2019 15:12:23
27 hours until total meltdown on this site.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 15:17:10
I have no hope we will address any further signings. I expected 5, we have 2 I'm happy with, whilst James is just potential. still waiting on the club signing a rw, but I'm guessing we'll get another lw next window.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 15:18:21
If he comes then great, if not then we will cope. Let’s give Angel Gomes a chance. Some of his touches last night were brilliant.

8.) 07 Aug 2019 15:18:58
DW20, I'm expecting triple signing - Snejder, Gaitan and Perisic. We are playing 4231 so we have a good "3" on our hands!

9.) 07 Aug 2019 15:30:53
Anyone else on here wishing we go for Zaha?

Martial, Rashford and Zaha would be electrifying on the counter, then Pogba could almost have a free role with McTom/ Matic/ Fred/ Andreas sitting behind him.

10.) 07 Aug 2019 15:44:58
Can't believe we've only signed 3 players and spent a measly £145 million. Next thing you know we'll be giving youth players a chance. We have ruined the good name of Moneychester United.

11.) 07 Aug 2019 15:51:25
"If I was Ole I would go". Another great quote lads, keep them coming. Genius.

12.) 07 Aug 2019 16:04:45
Ed002 has described united as hopping between targets like a headless chicken. hardly a team wanting to give 'youth players a chance'. Do you honestly think kids are playing 30+ games this season?

13.) 07 Aug 2019 16:08:18
Ole's going nowhere of his own accord, he was blessed to get the gig in the first place and i'm sure he knows it. The only place he'd be going to if he left United is back to Norway.

14.) 07 Aug 2019 16:16:28
Hmm kids let's see, well assuming you mean acadamy kids, we have rashford, tuanzebe, mctominey, greenwood and potentially gomes. In a season with Europa league, they're going to get a fair few games I would think. My condolences for the sad loss of the further 2 signings you expected this transfer window. Stay strong brother!

15.) 07 Aug 2019 16:27:19
GDS your sarcasm albeit bloody hell fantastic does not change the fact that we haven't had the transfer window that was required. We were playing catch-up already and we have lagged. Next window, we will be required to get the remaining players required in addition to what may be required then. For instance Matic going, Pogba leaving and what not.

People care of the club in different ways. I am sure you are the happy go lucky one who sees everything as perfect but if someone is saying that they aren't happy with this window then so be it. We have only added AWB, when we already had Dalot, and Maguire. What about RW, which is one position we haven't been able to fill since god knows when. CMx2. Still the Pogba conundrum looms. We don't know about Lukaku. Rojo, Darmian?

So in essence this has been an underwhelming window so far. We may still change that in the next 24 hours but i am not holding my breath given that we don't even know who we want.

16.) 07 Aug 2019 16:43:18
I don't class mctominay and rashford as 'kids' anymore. Nor lingard either for that matter. I suppose mctominay is still inexperienced but he will play games as Matic's career is concluding rapidly.

You are probably right though. Fred and Matic are our last two big Mr signings.

17.) 07 Aug 2019 16:51:07
We are doomed, doomed I say.
Really just listen to youselves.

18.) 07 Aug 2019 17:13:19
It's like being on the Titanic DW20! And Lukaku just took the last lifeboat to Belgium.

{Ed047's Note - the size of him he’d probably sink that too.

19.) 07 Aug 2019 17:22:12
GDS2, are you the clown around here? If Ole doesn't have the backing of the board on transfers, at a time they are most needed at United, why he would want to stay?

20.) 07 Aug 2019 17:28:52
Ed047 the icebergs would be scrambling to get out of his way. they would probably be faster than him anyway mind!

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

21.) 07 Aug 2019 18:04:08
Why would he leave? "o you didn't get an extra player or two I wanted so I'm going to quit one of the biggest jobs in football and go back to obscurity? "

22.) 07 Aug 2019 18:16:15
Looking forward to the window being over so the spoilt brats leave us alone for 9 months to enjoy the season. Football isn’t all about transfers, it’s about the games, and I can’t wait to get to OT on Sunday.

23.) 07 Aug 2019 18:41:32

I’m not happy with the window mate, I’ve made that clear in a few posts, disappointed to say the least that we haven’t got a midfielder signed as I think it was important. But some of the hyperbole and reactions are hilarious you have to admit. You’d think we are going to get relegated with the team we have, we’ve spent more than any other domestic club this window and we have improved, transfers aren’t as easy as people love to make out.

There are also a huge amount of positives that some people are just totally ignoring instead of giving balanced views.

24.) 07 Aug 2019 18:30:24
I'm not moaning about the transfers, because I'm 90% satisfied with the window so far, you said it yourself GDS2, we need a midfielder, I still hope we do get one. I'm saying if we don't get a midfielder it will reflect on Ole, one way or another. Of course transfers aren't as easy as on Football manager. But I think for a club like United it shouldn't be that hard to find a good midfielder, even if we're not at the top or have CL football. There are plenty of options.

25.) 07 Aug 2019 19:47:45
Agree with CM out there, who are the quality We need like Bruno.



18 Jul 2019 18:03:44
Question for 002 if you have the time, do you expect a transfer for Bruno Fernandes to happen? Seemingly gone quiet.


{Ed002's Note - If the club offer a suffient deal. Then yes.}

1.) 18 Jul 2019 18:27:12
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.}

2.) 18 Jul 2019 18:53:34
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.}

3.) 18 Jul 2019 21:30:02
Ok cool. Thanks ed. i will listen to them first then. Safe travels.

4.) 19 Jul 2019 21:52:49
I would be amazed if Fernandes comes - everytime i read about it a bid is about to be made. Has went on too long. My money would be on Matuidi with a deal for Pogba to go back to Juve in a years time.



03 Jun 2019 19:02:56
Would anyone take a punt on Andre Gomes? he's been steady for everton, could do a lot worse than him as a squad player and at the quoted figures, i think itd be a good signing.


1.) 03 Jun 2019 19:38:29
He'd probably get in the team mate. I rate him and have been impressed whenever I've watched him play.

2.) 03 Jun 2019 20:10:33
Was about to say this, at 25 year old and with Barcelona wanting around 25-30mil could be a low risk gamble.

For me better than McTomminay and Pereira for starters and as Herrera has gone, could be a win win.

3.) 03 Jun 2019 20:43:41
Wilbot the problem is, when do we take low risk gambles at this club? We prefer a high risk gamble.

4.) 03 Jun 2019 20:51:25
I would redwhiskey. Think he’s a very good player, glides when he’s on the ball and has lovely technique. I do think he could be a bit more mobile though. For the £25m-30m price I would take a punt for sure. Don’t have enough midfielders with quality on the ball.

5.) 03 Jun 2019 20:58:47
Agreed park, he'd be an apt replacement in the squad for Herrera, doesn't break the bank.

6.) 03 Jun 2019 22:23:53
Add more average players to an already average squad? No thanks.

7.) 03 Jun 2019 22:48:04
to right eric not good enough for Barcelona and not realy shone for everton.

8.) 03 Jun 2019 22:58:58
Eric we don't even have average. We buy superstars and look what it gets us. Nowhere.

9.) 04 Jun 2019 06:40:32
If we can get Rabiot on a than this is an upgrade on Ander leaving. Personally I’d take Strootman on loan too if his fitness worries are behind him.

10.) 04 Jun 2019 09:20:31
Eric79, you don't want average and then your next post wants strootman 😂. Andre gomes would be a much better option then that crock.

11.) 04 Jun 2019 11:00:13
Gomes is totally the wrong type of player we need to supplement the mids. In fact, not sure what he brings. He was average in a very average Everton side. Speaks volumes West Ham and Everton are after him, and Barcelona want rid. This is not the type of player we should be looking at.

12.) 04 Jun 2019 12:22:38
i wouldn't take a "punt" on anyone.

13.) 04 Jun 2019 14:23:41
yet you want strootman who has done nothing at marseille.

14.) 04 Jun 2019 14:44:18
A good player, but we need a few great ones. If we had world class players and needed good cover then he might have been a good option. But then he wants to leave Barcelona as he doesn't want to be a back up player. So its a no from me.



09 May 2019 12:45:55
Arnau puigmal training with the first team for the last game, not expecting to see much of him but hopefully we can give starts to gomes, chong, greenwood and garner. Deserve it over some of the first team regulars.


1.) 09 May 2019 13:09:10
He was very highly regarded when he came hopefully see some game time for him.

2.) 09 May 2019 14:15:24
He was very Higly rated but don't know much progress he has made. He is still very young.

I'm going to be honest here, I think arsenal have done well this transfer window. If they can get auba lacazette and pepe playing in a front three there's a lot of goals there. I think they'll surprise a few this season. In torreira and guendouzi they've midfield gems. David Luiz, an experienced pl defender for the outgoing koscielny. And then you've ceballos, not seen enough of him to comment.

My point is we've strengthened but also.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 02:34:49
Ceballos will start for them no bother.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 07:26:27
Agreed Arsenal have had a good window, fair play to them. I don’t rate Luis but he’s an improvement on what they had. The front 3 looks good on paper, but they need to keep Pepe happy.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 07:08:01
Also others have strengthened significantly. Pressed send by accident!

4.) 09 Aug 2019 09:19:44
Personally think Koscielny is as good as, if not better than Luiz. Tierney by all accounts sounds a good acquisition, but will he be fit enough to play regularly? Going forward they look very good, but their defence was a weakness last year and I don't think it looks any better this year either. Hopefully that holds them up, because going forward (and with Guendozi and Torreira a year older), they look very good.

Chelsea have Pulisic in for Hazard (I know who I'd choose) . Have let a lot of experience leave and I honestly don't know where their goals are coming from - Giroud has never consistently done it, Abraham scored plenty for Villa but this is a huge step up and their manager is similarly experienced at this level.

Spurs have acquired well - Ndombele will be the replacement for Dembele they needed, giving a bit of steel. Lo Celso sounds a good purchase and Sessegnon will likely progress and turn into a very good player. However, I'm unconvinced by their full backs and their Belgian CBs are another year older. They've also, once again, failed to sign a convincing back up striker to Kane (and have let Llorente go! ) . Son deputised very well in Kane's absence but I do think they lack the forward depth to challenge on multiple fronts.

We've solidified out defence and left ourselves pretty impotent up front, however I don't think it's all as bad as it seems. Our main rivals have strengthened well but generally have the same deficiencies they had last year. Us and Chelsea are both unknowns - it could go very well and the youthful exuberance amounts to something greater than the sum of it's parts. Or it could go tits up!

Regardless, roll on Sunday and let's have some fun watching a youthful team playing for the shirt in an attractive high pressing style (isn't that what we've all been asking for since LvG? )!



06 Aug 2019 21:41:16
The one thing I've noticed this transfer window is none of those OTT signing promos. I know the calibre of player I was supposed to be different but the shows we put on for the whole pogback and sanchez piano thing was embarrassing.

And I've got to say as someone who didn't particularly agree with buying maguire, his interview he seems raring to go, just like James and Wan Bissaka have shown so far.




07 Jul 2019 12:03:50
Dont see fred anywhere online in the preseason squad, injured or leaving?


1.) 07 Jul 2019 12:08:48
Says he’ll join up later for family reasons.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 13:59:03
Supposedly getting Married next week. He along with Darmian will join up with the squad at a later date. "Family reasons" given as the excuse for their absences.

3.) 08 Jul 2019 01:10:00
Why would Fred not get married before pre season training it makes no sense to me.

{Ed004's Note - Might have thought hed be in Copa America squad? Weddings are planned well in advance}



25 Jun 2019 23:31:31
If 65m will get ndombele it makes me wonder why we're not in for him. Sell pogba to highest bidder and bring him and fernandes in. That would be great business imo.


{Ed002's Note - Are you going to go through the summer whining about all of the players Manchester United has no interest in?}



14 Jun 2019 18:04:54
Question for 002 if possible, i know you hate to give blow by blow updates. But it seems other than raiolas ban the media has gone pretty quiet on de ligt, has anything changed? Or is just a case of a decision to be made on the players part? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

Hope not, there's a player in there somewhere and with herrera gone, pogba potentially leaving and matic on his last legs. We'll be needing him. No sign of an impending incoming CM as of yet so i don't believe he'll be going anywhere just yet.

004 I can't see pogba offering much in the way of pereira's pressing game. Far too lazy for me. Upgrade on the ball but I think if we're to keep with the press I think pogba will hinder us more.


{Ed004's Note - Im sure if everyone around him is pressing Pogba will press as well. Both his injury he was miles ahead of everyone in our team for possessions won. Its easy to forget how influential a player he is for us.}

My worry is where does this leave Henderson? He won't come back to be second choice. I mean tying dave up is good but i'd now look seriously at any offers that come in for him, regardless. Henderson is going to be great and no doubt will be englands number 1 in a few years.
