Hi ed002 hope you're well.
Can I ask in your opinion how many players do you think we are still going to sign and in what position.

Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - RB, CB, CM, CM/AM, RW/F needed plus possibly a GK and probably a Striker.}

1.) 07 Jul 2019 12:55:32
Not much then.

{Ed002's Note - It would be an easy way to spend about £400M or so.}

2.) 07 Jul 2019 13:11:10
Ed, is that another RB in spite of AWB signing?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 07 Jul 2019 13:11:47
Ed002, forgetting who the club has been linked with, or who the club might sign. Who would have been your ideal picks for United to sign for those positions?

{Ed002's Note - Wan-Bissaka; Ruban Dias; Hamed Traorè; Kai Havertz; Federico Chiesa; Jan Oblak; Robert Lewandowski (for one year)}

4.) 07 Jul 2019 13:28:14
Chiesa would be ace from what I've seen.

5.) 07 Jul 2019 13:50:47
Wow, some great choices in there. Sure you don't want a job at United?

6.) 07 Jul 2019 15:47:08
Ed002 for Technical Director. Anyone? 😊.

7.) 07 Jul 2019 16:16:28
Has there been any change with Dias? Is he any closer to leaving and where to?

ED02 has my vote for TD and we know the appeal of living in Manchester is not for you so you are more than welcome to work out of the London Office. :)

{Ed002's Note - Ruben Dias (CB) Benfica think that he will be difficult to hold on to but his termination clause has increased which will fend off most interested clubs. But that may not put off Atletico Madrid who remain very keen and can afford him. And it may not put off Real Madrid who have identified him as one of the two players they want in the summer of 2020 - and that has been discussed between the sides when recently finalising the transfer of another player - could suit everyone.}

8.) 07 Jul 2019 20:31:36
Superb info ed, thank you.

9.) 08 Jul 2019 05:45:39
Lewandowski would be a dream signing.

10.) 08 Jul 2019 20:58:53
Thanks as always Ed002, gent as always, if that's your pronoun 😂.



01 May 2019 12:39:45
HI Ed002, if you have a sec.

Do we still hold interest in Nikola Moro.

I know there was talk before he suffered Cruciate injury.



{Ed002's Note - No, there is no interested in Nikola Moro.}

1.) 01 May 2019 23:33:39
Cheers Ed. Have a nice day.

2.) 02 May 2019 08:27:11
Hi ED.

Is anyone.................

{Ed002's Note - WRONG PAGE.}



12 Apr 2019 17:52:13
Hi ed002, if u have a sec. Do we still hold our long term interest in Milenkovic savic or has our interest now switched to Ruben Neves.



{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry.}

1.) 12 Apr 2019 18:39:14
Maybe it’s just me that thinks Neves is rather overrated.

2.) 12 Apr 2019 20:53:16
Thanks ed.

3.) 13 Apr 2019 18:46:39
Watching Man U v West Ham. we are shocking, Does anyone else think we offered the job to ole too soon . Been dreadful since he took over . changes the team around too much for my liking.
This is my opinion only
No need to get shirty if u disagree.

4.) 13 Apr 2019 18:55:18
I always thought we should have gone for Poch. But ole did enough to get the job. He needs to be backed. Unfair to judge him now.

5.) 13 Apr 2019 19:22:41
I'm not and have never been a fan of appointing Solskjaer permanently. Not to say I don't like him or that he hadn't done a fantastic job but I think there are better managers out there. We were initially brilliant under Solskjaer but the last 6 weeks or so we have been dire. That includes beating PSG.

It's still probably too early to judge whether it will or won't work as regardless of who the manager is, it is clear we need better players and we need the hierarchy above the manager dealt with. Nevertheless, I'd be more confident of it working with someone like Pochettino, Allegri or Blanc in charge.

6.) 13 Apr 2019 23:57:49
A lot of people agree that our squad is still lacking in a lot of areas and need a bit of a clean out at the end of the season
Ole has done a great job since he has come in and has us challegeing for top 4 again. How bout we give the guy a full season and a couple of transfer windows and see how we are going then. Always too quick to judge a manager, he obviously has said the way he wants to play and he may not have the players to do it
Lets give the guy a proper chance and get behind him.

7.) 13 Apr 2019 22:50:16
It's amazing how so many pple were over the moon before about Oles apptmt and who disagreed strongly with myself and others who said he was the wrong man and now they are changing their minds. I really hope Ole proves me wrong but he has done nothing concrete in terms of football achievement as a manager to be given the reins. Allegri or Poch were my preferred choices but as others have correctly identified and especially Ed 02 the main problem is much more fundamental. Ed Woodward is a great money making man but he is not and has proved that he never will be up to the task of guiding us playing wise. We desperately need a director of football and proper structure in place so that we get the right type of players, playing style and lay foundations for the future success of the club. City have overtaken us and are streets ahead with the way they have built the club in a relatively short time into a world force with wonderful training facilities and young teams coming through too. Just as importantly they have reached out to the local fan base and to attract fans worldwide. Their biggest challenge will be when Pep decides to leave as he will within a year or two. Until then we have to get the basics right. All that being said what is key now is retaining our best players and signing really top notch ones. If we for example lose DE Gea Pogba and Herrera in the summer transfer window what sort of message does that send and how will we attract the best players to us. Being out of the Champions League will make things doubly difficult. I will support Ole and the team just like I supported Jose but fear for the future.

8.) 14 Apr 2019 13:36:26
Oles had a easy start and now we are starting to see what the team and coach is made off! .

The way the team is playimg it is the same as how the team wa splaying under Ole but with a little bit more effort.

I don't think Ole is the right man but we can't b changing coaches like changing boxers.

Our plan for the next 2 years should be to clear out the players we don't need and buy players that are hungry to wear the United shirt.

It is going to be another 2 to 3 year project and if that doesn't work then we are just screwed.

9.) 15 Apr 2019 12:29:40
how long did it take poch to implement his style and work ethic to the players.

people expect instant change. the reality is it takes TIME

while this team has these players regardless of manager we are not going to be title contenders.

some say we need to get out of this ole bubble when in fact its this whole title challenge bubble.

we are no longer a team to compete at the top level currently

untill we change the way the club is run and the recruitment is sorted we will be top 4 at best this is no easy fix.



05 Aug 2018 17:41:58
Just a guess but I reckon Pogba to Barcelona and O Dembele to United is on.
not for a swap but similar to sanchez miki deal.
Think Martial may go to spuds in a similar type deal for Toby in return but I reckon it will actually turn out to be psg where martial ends up.
If the deal with spurs doesn't work out Maguire will be coming which will disappoint me immensely.

Let's wait and see, am I hot or cold eds?


1.) 05 Aug 2018 20:26:09
I’d take Dembele for sure. We’d still need a Pog replacement though.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 20:47:02
If Pogba goes we need sms.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:55:35
Will you then change your name PogtheDog?

4.) 05 Aug 2018 22:37:21
Lol 12 dislikes, a lot of Harry maguire fans in the house. As Pogba said, 'football went home'

5.) 05 Aug 2018 22:49:47
Its got nothing to do with Maguire. Why keep banging on about that. How bitter are you.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 22:58:24
When life hands you lemons.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 00:27:49
Make an omlette?

8.) 06 Aug 2018 08:04:21
Lemons get a bad rap. They’re delicious.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 10:18:41
Lemon gelato is the best. Maybe with a scoop of mint choc or hazelnut caramel.



07 Jul 2017 01:16:02
Fyi eds002 on Everton page

{Ed002's Note - Giroud will have talks with who at the weekend? Manchester United are very keen on Lukaku as you know. There is no offer from Chelsea at this time for reasons I have explained. I appreciate everyone is saying the move to Manchester has been agreed but I personally am not so sure everything is quite settled just yet, but I expect it can be. }.

I'm asking a question I think I already know the answer to but do you guys think given our recent travails that players would be fearful of coming to United in case it has a negative impact on their careers?


1.) 02 Dec 2019 13:46:32
No. They’ll get paid well and move if it doesn’t work out.



08 Oct 2019 16:08:20
Hi eds any feasibility in setting up a Manchester United toxics page where all the bile towards Ole and the players can be directed. Far too much of this type stuff clogging up the banter page.

To all, please note this is a sarcastic post.


{Ed033's Note - If people haven't noticed there is a Discussion Posts page and a Match Posts page (See top menu tabs) as well as Banter and Rumours pages.



23 Sep 2019 21:38:34
Lol I knew people would go mental after that result but you boys and girls are going straight to the looney bin 😂😂.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 22:46:45
But late for this mate.

2.) 24 Sep 2019 06:33:51
We will see more of this in future games as well.
No point of knee jerk reaction after every match.



29 Jul 2019 22:47:29
Puigmal scores again tonight, 2 in 2, could he be the next to make the breakthrough, very highly rated. Dylan Levitt scored aswell tonight, his development is also looking good.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 08:33:06
If you have a look back I posted about the arrival of Puigmal, young Spanish lad very highly thought of. I think he was playing a lot of representative football at the start. They get to an age when they need to take the step up, so we shall see, a few do most don’t.



08 Jul 2019 19:58:46
To give pogba his dues, at least he turned turned up for pre season training. Neymar and griezeman would make one ill.


1.) 08 Jul 2019 20:59:38
Did anyone see the video United put up where it looked like pogba and lingard were going at it.

2.) 08 Jul 2019 21:00:13
Seems to be a common situation with players looking to go to Barcelona.

3.) 08 Jul 2019 21:19:51
At least he turned up for pre season training? Gets paid incredibly well and he deserves his dues? Not on his Nelly. neymar and griezmann are twats anyway. Pogba shouldn't be getting any credit for doing what he's actually paid to do.

4.) 08 Jul 2019 21:48:15
He turned up to a job he gets paid £200k a week to do, what a guy.

5.) 08 Jul 2019 21:49:38
Funny part was lingard and pogba having a go at each other in the first pre season video clip released.

Rice is a cb playing in cm. I don't see him pulling up trees at West ham.

100% NO.

Because that manager has lost fellaini, hererra, sanchez, lukaku without replacement.
Because that manager was left with darmian and young as rbs, smalling and Jones as cbs, matic, pereira and Fred as cms, no right winger, pogba and matic both wanting to leave.
The results are obviously not going the right way but Ole has:
Gotten rid of dead wood/ bad influences
Bought well in the transfer market, better than I would say any of the previous 3 incumbents.
Bought the signing of the season in Dan James.
Brought through Williams, greenwood and tuanzebe as first team regulars
Has given chong, gomes, garner minutes also.
Given martial back his no. 9 and has trusted him up front.
Trusted rashford at all times.
De gea signed a new contract.
I would say he's improved Williams, greenwood, Dan James and of course Scott mcTominay.
Sure a new manager might get a bounce of wins, of course Ole did but what if an allegri was brought in, would he sell some of these young players Ole has and is in my eyes developing, remember van gaal sold the likes of Evans who should never have left the club.
I still believe in Ole and in what he is doing to transform the club.

Hi Ken, not clear from your post whether you think you were wrong to drop your support in Ole?

Andreas I'm afraid simply does not have the quality, for me he reminds me of cleverly, his overhype and now similar toils, similar players also.
There is a player in Fred and he should stay and form part of our midfield but we need 2 serious additions for cm.

Does no one see that these are exactly the same conversations that were had about Jose, about lvg no? Literally these exact same conversations just years later, it's madness I say, off to the asylum 😜

Look at our players. Really look at most of our midfield, it is crap, bar Scott, Fred as a rotation option, off with the 2 viruses pogba and Matic, off with Andreas who even though I want him to do well is not at the quality required. Hererra has not been replaced, fellaini though often maligned, unfairly in my opinion, has not been replaced. We need 2 possibly 3 midfield replacements, 2 at least verging on World class to compete in anyways.
Once we get that and a striker we will compete.

Also there is far too much pressure on Marcus rashford. But Marcus rashford signed a contract for 250k a week so unfortunately there are in my view unrealistic expectations of him because of this.
Manchester United have failed Marcus by their over reliance on him, a top class if albeit older striker is needed in the short term for the next 2 years for Marcus to share some of the burden with.
Whatever people's thoughts on lukaku it was a huge mistake to sell him without replacing.
