Just want to say Thankyou to all the Eds especially at this period of the transfer window because it must take a lot of their time to put up all our posts.


{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. Yeah it can do, I mean I will be up again in 3 hours or so to do the review of the day. Hopefully I will get a chance to grab a couple of hours during the day and catch up. But thanks and good night all and fingers crossed for an interesting day tomorrow!}

Echo the sentiment. Thanks to all the Eds (except Ed Woodward :P) .

{Ed001's Note - but he was great in the Equaliser! How can you not thank him?}

2.) 08 Aug 2019 05:26:13
Thanks Ed’s one and all
We appreciate your efforts once again.

{Ed001's Note - thank you very much Prm!}

Dybala possibly being bid for by Spurs for £62m. I know it's only Sky Sources etc etc but it does intrigue me because if does suggest they want to sell Erik's on rather than lose him for nothing next year. If I were Utd I woukd tell him to sit tight see out his contract and then sign him next year on a free. Meantime I would be very happy ro get Coutinho on a years loan for £20million. Of you think about Barcelona would prob want £100m to sell him. So a loan of £20m a year for five years would be the equivalent of that sale figure. The advantage of the loan though is that we get the chance to see how he fits and adds to the team and if next year we want to buy he should cost at least £20m less than this year as he will be a year older. For Barcelona they get the loan amount plus get his wages off their balance sheet for at least one year. If things don't work out back he goes. Seems to me to be a win win for both teams and player. The one only slightly negative is that I would really love to see Sanchez come good but having him and Coutinho in the same team might be difficult.

Who was the last South American to be a wonder at United?

2.) 06 Aug 2019 20:28:06
Tevez and heinze were both decent.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 20:29:17
Sorry but I think its a bad idea. don't rate him at all sorry.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 20:29:24
Forlan 😂.

5.) 06 Aug 2019 20:38:46
Coutinho is premier league proven take him in a heartbeat.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 20:58:32
He won't join United due to liverpool and if he's got any chance of going back there in the future coming to united will ruin any chance of that .

IMHO i do not rate him . would much prefer Eriksen, sell Lukaku and get dembele from Lyon . next summer go all out for Sancho .

if we do sell pogba this window less than 40 hours to do it then shoild go for SMS .

CSF you forget the legend that was Anderson!

8.) 07 Aug 2019 04:17:29
Can’t see Spurs paying anyone £250k per week so not sure Dybala is moving there.



02 Aug 2019 01:08:30
Sorry didn't finish my last post. I would rather we didn't pay stupid amounts for Maguire et al and instead helped out our neighbours Bolton and Bury.




02 Aug 2019 01:07:24
Seems to me that this is an unusually difficult transfer window because so few of the really best players are moving. With so many clubs having huge revenue streams funded from TV it means the biggest clubs like United can no longer just buy who they want by waving wads of cash around. In a way its better because it levels the playing field. What it does do is highlight which clubs are really organised and know how to conduct their business efficiently. From the outside it appears that we are seriously lacking in that department. However that may be an unfair assessment. Maybe the reason I gave above for a slow market is the biggest factor in it being hard for United to get deals done. On a longer term view I actually would prefer us not to pay £80 million for a player if the calibre of Maguire. He is just not worth that amount. In a week when we have seen the troubles at Bolton and Bury I woukd rather we.

Pogba again showing the extra bit of class with that killer pass which led to the penalty. I know he doesn't do it often enough but we are going to miss that sort of thing if he goes. Who else in the squad has his athleticism driving runs and ability to deliver such passes. City have two or three players like that. If Pogba goes and even of we get eg Fernando's in we will still be light.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 21:22:53
“City have two or three players like that”. that's exactly the point, its pretty much impossible to shut down all of their chance creators.

If we had more than one top quality chance creator we would have been much closer to the top of the table. Hopefully we address that soon with fernandes, dybala etc.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 21:32:41
I will still be surprised if he goes.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 21:34:07
Exactly dsg

If we had more than 1 player who can create it would ease the pressure off that 1 player

But having wide players that stay wide can help with creating space.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 21:52:54
Why surprised jerd?

5.) 30 Jul 2019 21:54:54
City have both creative midfielders great wide players and attackers who are lethal. We used to play with two wingers and had four great strikers in 1999. It worked then too.

{Ed0333's Note - Don’t worry you have OGS who is the Norwegian Mourinho. I’m not sure how you’re gonna go from counter attacking to attacking football in the space of a few weeks. Surely this takes time to evolve?

6.) 31 Jul 2019 06:51:52
Agree with Ed.
The evolution will take some time.
And at the moment it's only Pogba who can split the defense with such quality passes from midfield.
Hopefully we can sign another quality midfielder to ease the creative burden.

7.) 31 Jul 2019 09:41:39
Angle because I don't think he will leave, I don't think united or ole want to sell him .
I don't think there is anybody in a position to buy him . We will find out soon enough.

8.) 31 Jul 2019 10:06:04
I wouldn't be surprised by it. They've known for quite some time that he wants out.

I'd be disappointed though if he does leave that we don't sign a replacement.

9.) 31 Jul 2019 07:24:20
Agree Ed. So surely it’s best to allow that time to pass rather than simply shut down any chance Ole has. We all agree it will take time, yet people are writing off Ole already. Allow him that time to make the necessary changes.

{Ed0333's Note - I agree Wazza he may not be the man to bring you glory but if you’ve given him the job respect him enough to back him in the transfer market and afford him time. Any manager in any industry just wants time to prove themselves.

Let's give Sanchez a chance. He had a rubbish season last year but maybe I'd we get behind him he might turn things around. Let's be honest he was a really good player at Arsenal and most of us were delighted when he signed.

Think it's unfair to say Lukaku didn't want to play for us. Seems to me he has been frozen out due to Ole wanting to play a different style of attacking football. He will score lots of goals if given good service. Not his fault we had no natural wingers and a poor midfield

Yes. Seen him a few times. Quick player. Knows where the goal is but I woukd not put him anywhere near the elite level of strikers and doubt he will ever reach that level.

I want someone who really wants to play for the fans and wants to be a man utd player. Aubamayueng is a really good goal scorer but do we really want another 30yr old from who we might get two years of gt play and then what. He will have limited sell on value and prob stifle younger talent like greenwood.

I didn't say we should sign him. I just recognise that when he is fit he is still a great player. If a deal could be struck that meant he would be paid according to minutes spent on the pitch he could yet be an inspired signing for someone.


{Ed0333's Note - An inspired signing for Doctors Without Borders maybe?

Would stick with the same team but ask Perreira to sit a bit deeper.

Shappy it's right not to get carried away especially by the scoreline. The truth is Chelsea were the better team for most of the match. They hit the bar and crossbar before falling behind and our defence at times was all over the place. I cannot understand why Chelsea took Barkley off and did not start with Kante. Also they too have a new look centre back pairing which led to some of our goals. City and Liverpool would have been much more clinical and scored lots. That said you can only beat what's in front of you and the confidence the team gets will be valuable. Wolves next week will be a much sterner test and we can get a more accurate picture of where we are at. Meantime good start and let's hope for more results and attacking with pace like yesterday.

It's a sad reflection of how far we have fallen that we are even discussing whether we might be beaten to a top six spot by the likes of Wolves and Everton. That in itself is a sad indictment of how bad things have become. All of us on this site want Utd to succeed. None of us believe we have a divine right to. There has to be realism though and the sad fact is that City Liverpool and Spurs have a better first team than we do. Their squad players are also better. We do lack top quality creative and defensive midfielders. Shaw is suspect defensively getting caught out of position far too often and he is targeted by good teams. Watch this season and you will see. Young is a decent player but his best days are behind him and he never was a top defender. Defensively we lack cover too at centre back. Nobody can say with honesty that Smalling and Jones fills them with confidence. With VAR this season Smalling will be walking a tightrope because he always seems to hold players. Up front we do not have a player who you just know is going to get you 25+ goals a season guaranteed. Rashford is probably the one player able to get close but he is not going to score without service. And what happens if he gets injured. Its so telling that no too European players want to sign for us anymore. They are not blind.

It's unfair to burden youngsters like Greenwood with the expectation he will get loads of goals in their first season with the first team. Again its unfair to expect too much of James, Gomez and Tong. It's a massive step up for them

I agree with Ed that we are significantly weaker as things stand with our attack and midfield. Spurs are a lot stronger than us. Arsenal have made some great signings and frankly Tierney at £25m is a steal. I would have him over Shaw anyday. Celtic supporters will tell you just how good he is and he is only going to get better. The gooners have got a great signing too in Pepe. Meantime West Ham have made some good signings and if they click will be hard to beat and likewise Everton. Wolves will be better for a full season last year and will try to challenge for top six too although Europa League journeys may hinder them. One thing about Wolves though is that they have a good manager and good team who work on transfers quietly and whilst not always signing the biggest names seem to get players who have potential which they realise more often than not. In all honesty if Pogba is injured or goes walkabout then who is going to provide the bullets for our strikers. Mata only does it sporadically. Perreira has been lightweight so far although I think he has huge potential. Mctominaybis no creative genius. Jesse is never going to be a great. Sanchez is the only unknown but he has a lot to prove. So yes I will support the team but I am also realistic in my hopes for this comping season. Even if we get Fernandez I still think we are two players short. A top top goalscorer and another midfielder. The beauty of football is we all have our opinions and time proves us to be geniuses or idiots. More often than not I fall into the latter category but it's all part of what makes supporting a team, our team, such a compelling thing.

We will be lucky to make top six.
