Heard a rumour from the second most reliable source after Ed002 that Matt Judge took a flight from Amsterdam to Cologne. Wonder what he could be doing in Germany now.

Source, twitter ofcourse. 😁😁.

City have withdrawn their offer. Chelsea intersted.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 15 Jan 2018 22:09:18
Cant follow the figures though although I doubt any journo knows. The Indy saying Arsenal wanted Martial PLUS cash? and now its 30 million PLUS Miki? neither of those deals look good to me.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 22:54:54
I can't see Chelsea splashing the cash when there is an unknown with the manager. Probably going public to satisfy fans that they tried.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 02:04:16
Replacement for Hazard is my guess. Hopefully just BS, but if they are in the mix it will be a problem for us I think - these foreigners seem to love London, I doubt they spend much time partying, learning the history and shops you can find anywhere - it's just convenience and the 'image'.

I genuinely don't see the draw in London for a professional footballer over other major cities in the UK.



14 Jan 2018 13:16:24
Di Marzio reporting that we have reached an agreement with Sanchez and his agents.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 14 Jan 2018 13:50:28
Than surely we have. that guy is special at news.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 14:13:10
That guy is specially wrong everytime he opens his mouth.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:29:19
Yeah sure he is mikon. What planet you living on. Has always been incredibly accurate. Most have some decent sources.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 10:31:48
Incredibly accurate? that's a stretch, sure he is better than some but he is wrong about transfers all the time!



13 Jun 2017 18:48:47
This goes out to Ed002 if he is available. I read somewhere, I think it was the Chelsea page, that United could be in for Fabregas. could you possibly shed some light on it please? Given that we see a Magic discussion down the page, is it Matic or Fabregas that we are interested in, if either.

Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United could potentially be push for Matic as the interest from elsewhere has gone. Fabregas is keen to stay.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 21:25:38
Sorry Ed, can I clarify, the interest United had elsewhere has gone or interest in Matic from elsewhere has gone?

{Ed002's Note - The other club that was interested in Matic are no longer keen.}

2.) 13 Jun 2017 23:41:11
Cheers for the reply, Ed!

3.) 14 Jun 2017 05:26:33
Thanks Ed. If Fabregas is staying, why are Chelsea considering Verrati? They can't have two similar sorts playing in the same game.

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be on the wrong page.}

4.) 14 Jun 2017 05:38:51

Wasn't the other club that was interested in Matic? If so, have they found someone else they are going for or have they backed out due to a high asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry - this is the MU page.}

As things stand, we are looking at burning out by December. We have 3 brilliant midfielders out of which one is an enigma and decides when to play. We have 2 good strikers in Martial and Greenwood if he can stay focussed on the game and not go the Ravel Morrison way. We have one wide forward in Rashford who on his day is unplayable and when its not his day, its like playing with 10 men. We have 2 fullbacks who are incapable of crossing a football even if that meant saving their lives. We have one brilliant crosser in Dalot but he can't buy a game.

It feels like Jose's third season transfer window where we are linked with every footballer but just won't pay up. Sancho will sign for Liverpool next summer. We can't get Reguilion. We aren't getting that french defender from RBL. Chelsea have strengthened, Liverpool even if they don't get Thiago are strong. City are strong enough. Arsenal have strengthened and Spurs will too.

We might need a C.V. break in Jan to freshen our lot up.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 15 Sep 2020 21:16:36
Agree Shan.

How Chelsea have done their business is commendable.
Identified the players and are on track to fix all the holes in their squad.
They are showing ruthlessness as well by bringing in a new GK despite spending world record fee on Kepa.

Question is, are the decision makers happy with top 4?
Still hope United can pull off Sancho, Upamecano and an attacking LB.

2.) 15 Sep 2020 21:24:53
3 weeks left Shan, let’s see where we are then. Plenty of time to make a few things happen.

3.) 15 Sep 2020 21:25:53
Feeling confident then Shan 🤣.

4.) 15 Sep 2020 21:30:30
Think our lack of confidence stems from the ineptitude of our board and their visible lack of ambition. If we had a competent set up then things wouldn’t always seem so bad 🤷‍♂️.

5.) 15 Sep 2020 21:34:44
New season, new optimistic Shan.

Unbeaten in the league since January, we aren’t as bad as some would have you believe.

6.) 15 Sep 2020 21:48:00
I actually agree with Shan on one point. I can't easily forget how tired the players looked in our last lot of games. I worry the short break will have us running on empty before long.

7.) 15 Sep 2020 22:18:50
The drop off in quality from our first XI to the rest of the squad is huge and has to be a massive worry for Ole. Remember he didn’t really trust his subs towards the end of the season and in the Europa League. Hopefully dan James etc can step up and give us better options off the bench.

8.) 15 Sep 2020 23:01:41
The difference is Chelsea have an owner who will happily invest money into the club quickly to address areas, whereas ours only care about what the share price looks like on the NY stock market.

9.) 15 Sep 2020 23:24:17

The main drop off in quality was between Bruno and the rest, VDB fills that gap now so we don’t have to play Bruno in every game, this should help a lot as he was burnt out towards the end of the season.

We need a couple more signings and fingers crossed we get them, still a few weeks left in the window and Ed has told us we have interest in players, fingers crossed we get them in, if not then maybe another kid will step up like Greenwood.

I feel sorry for Ole as I think with the right players signed we could have a good shot at it and if it doesn’t work then he’s had his chance and can go, but if not given the right players (which we all agree he’s 2 or 3 short) it’s going to be really difficult to judge him.

I also remember it’s really easy to talk a lot and be negative while we aren’t playing, once the games start coming thick and fast and people realise how good we can actually be people will surely calm down a bit.

10.) 16 Sep 2020 00:00:57
did not ole say he is happy if we do not make any trannsfers.

11.) 16 Sep 2020 06:46:37
It wasn’t just Bruno who was shattered.
AWB, Maguire, Matic and Rashford were all abysmal in the last half a dozen games - had completely run out of energy. Where are the rotational options now through the door for those guys? Oh, wait.
We needed 5 signings this summer and are probably now going to end up with one, plus maybe one on loan.
I dread to think of the points we’ll drop on a Saturday away at the likes of Newcastle/ Villa/ Burnley having needed to start Lingard/ Fred/ James in order to rest Bruno/ Martial/ Pogba for the following Tuesday’s trip to the Allianz Arena.

12.) 16 Sep 2020 06:59:27
Shan and I have had our disagreements but I find myself agreeing with his post, those are the issue we need to fix.

13.) 16 Sep 2020 07:57:38
This year we will be facing higher level of opposition midweek as we are in Champions League.
Therefore it's crucial for us to get quality players in to compete strongly in all competitions.

14.) 16 Sep 2020 08:34:03
the amount of games in that space of time after the restart was hopefully a bit of a 1 off .

15.) 16 Sep 2020 09:25:05
Could be a case of prioritising the UCL and Premier League and using the domestic cups to play the youth and fringe players. It’s the only way we can keep players fresh as our squad isn’t as deep as others.

16.) 16 Sep 2020 09:33:43
jred, let me ask you a question. Would you be happy to play Lingard, Perreira in the CL to give breaks to DvB, Bruno or Pogba. Would be rest Rashford and play James instead. Mind you we are in the CL this season and let's not take that likely else by December we will again be in the Seville cup. The amount of games will likely be similar this year because we have already lost a month and there is small matter of European Championships at the end of the season. Not to mention the international games that these lads be involved in.

I want to be optimistic but given the way we have dealt in our transfers, i am not.



31 Aug 2020 17:16:47
Hi Ed002, i understand that you don't like giving blow by blow updates but i couldn't find much on the latest with Sancho. Would you mind giving an update on that. Is the deal still on, are we still working on it or has it gone dead now. The window is open another 35 days but think the team should be settled before the season so i assume people are working on getting it done?

And reports we are in for Upamecano, but you said he won't be moving to us so i think these reports are false.


Shan UNITED boy

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed in respect of Sancho. His agent has continued to pester another club. Upamecano signed a new contract.}

1.) 31 Aug 2020 17:39:29
Thanks Ed, appreciate your response. Looks to me like the agent is the main problem with the Sancho deal.

{Ed002's Note - I think you will find Manchester United not being willing to meet the demands of his club, the player or his agent might be the problem.}

2.) 31 Aug 2020 17:54:23
Depends if those demands are outrageous. It’s a buyers
Market, so guess the club thought they might get him cheaper. If not, walk away. Dortmund, the agent and the player obviously don’t need the cash or want the move.

3.) 31 Aug 2020 19:24:22
My gut feeling is it will drag out right to the end and we will pay up like we always do.

4.) 01 Sep 2020 08:41:54
I don't think it is dragging out. We want the player, but not at that price. Simple really. We probably want Neymar too, just not at a price we'd have to pay. We thought there was a possibility with sancho to negotiate a lower price, there isn't. In my mind that's neither embarrassing or dragging out. It just isn't happening.



30 Aug 2020 20:51:18
Latest reports have confirmed that Shappy has organized a Jamie Vardy type party at his residence tonight to celebrate DVdB signing (almost) .

Well done if he is signed on. How he slots in with Bruno and Pogba seems to be the question now because our fullbacks are worthless going forwards so a diamond seems out of the question.

Or is Pogba gone now?

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 30 Aug 2020 21:15:20
I'm on tender hooks until he holds up the shirt. I can't get my hopes up to have them dashed.

As for where does he fit. Well Lingard and Andreas Pereira played nearly 5000 minutes between them.

DvdB would offer so much more than either by of them. He can play any role in midfield with little to no drop off in quality.

2.) 30 Aug 2020 21:43:40
I havnt seen much of him. What type of player is he?

3.) 30 Aug 2020 21:47:06
If we can sell Mufc to VdB and Fernandes, were we really in for De Ligt, Haaland or Bellingham? I know Ed said we rolled out the carpet for Bellingham and thought OLE would be enough for Haaland to sign. Maybe we can't map out a younger talents Road for them.

4.) 30 Aug 2020 22:16:37
Cantona it's a difficult place to come as a youngster. a lot of pressure and I suppose the mapping out is a big thing, when your already a seasoned pro I suppose it's a lot easier to make the decision to come. Vdb will be an amazing signing for us, much better option than grealish.

5.) 30 Aug 2020 22:21:34
Tenterhooks, Shappy

You’re welcome


6.) 30 Aug 2020 22:42:46
Autocorrect strikes again 😂, to be fair with DvdB about to sign I'll not that fussed.

Mumbles, in some ways he has shades of Lampard about him. He just knows how to use space, especially around the opposition box. While he maybe works a little harder than Lampard and his vision and appreciation of the game means he can play as a creative midfielder dictator moving the ball and controlling the tempo.

So he could easily step in for either Bruno or Pogba with ease. He has on occasion played as a No.6, and done well. However, I would say that his long range passing is only so-so, which can limit his impact when played deeper. Also his ability to create space around the box or ghost in and finish a move are his best assets, which means he is best when either given license to get forward or played further forward.

His signing would mean that we can look at our bench and see a quality player there to bring on and help change the game.

7.) 30 Aug 2020 23:21:16
Good man Shappy. No wonder you're excited. Great signing at the price considered. More of the same going forward and we'll be moving in the right direction.

8.) 31 Aug 2020 07:50:35
Think you’ve summed up his qualities perfectly there, Shappy 👍🏼
I’m convinced that PP will now be asked to play as the ‘6’ on occasions where we are expecting to dominate the ball (against the bottom half etc. )
DvdB really does remove the issue we had for the last half a dozen or so games. Bruno was obviously shattered but the drop off in class to anyone else was so big, we had to flog him into the ground. No more ☺️.



21 Aug 2020 21:53:07
They should really just name it the Seville cup.

Shan UNITED boy



16 Aug 2020 21:58:46
Well done genius. Loud and clear. Genius.
Need a goal, put on FosuMensah 😂. Wait till 93 minutes before you put on a striker. Oh wait, yes Martial wasnt injured.
Why on earth would Sancho want to come? To be introduced after 90 minutes.

Shan UNITED boy

1.) 16 Aug 2020 22:00:41
Thought we played well, missed too many chances, 46 shots in 2 games and only scored 2 penalties, disappointing when you deserve to win but don’t.

2.) 16 Aug 2020 22:07:48
fosu Mensah attempted 2-3 crosses, one of which james should be burying.

3.) 16 Aug 2020 22:07:57
46 shots in 2 games. Why would you deserve to win if you can't put the ball in the net. Something lacking wouldn't you say.

4.) 16 Aug 2020 22:10:42
Our squad is just poor. when you look at our bench who do you trust to come on and make a difference? 🤷‍♂️ Anyways season over now, time for the players to recouperate, ole to rest and reflect, and Ed and his team to get their finger out and sign some players.

5.) 16 Aug 2020 22:12:22
We deserved to lose GDS2. When you’re playing in the semi-finals of a European cup you have to take your chances. One team did that tonight and they fully deserve to be in the final on Friday.

6.) 16 Aug 2020 22:14:52
Guess that depends how you view football, sometimes the chances just don’t go in, I’d say 46 shots in 2 games is quite impressive and you have to win the games and the best team loses.

{Ed047's Note - not everyone has blinkers the size of yours that’s for sure🤦‍♂️

7.) 16 Aug 2020 22:16:42

{Ed047's Note - grow up you utter child

8.) 16 Aug 2020 22:16:27
Couldn't wait to get on and have a pop at ole again shan, I bet you were sat there cheering on the opposition aswell just so you could write this post. I get when posters from other pages that support other teams come on and have a gloat but don't expect it from fans of the club. Getting bored of reading your posts now.

9.) 16 Aug 2020 22:19:12
Did you think we didn’t play well tonight? I remember how we played under LVG and a lot of games under Mourinho, we were all bored to tears and many on here were saying they wanted good attacking football, don’t think anyone can say we don’t have that. Just because I thought we played ok in a loss and haven’t overreacted means I’ve got blinkers on, Jesus Christ this place.

{Ed047's Note - they ran through your midfield and defence with ease when ever they needed too, you scored a penalty before squandering chances.

They scored two very good goals and rightly deserved to go through.

The trouble is you as a group see a green shoot and within a week have grown a 200’ oak tree.

10.) 16 Aug 2020 22:20:56


{Ed047's Note - don’t make me laugh, who was the one being an abusive tool, yes you 🤷‍♂️

11.) 16 Aug 2020 22:24:10
Don't know if I've ever seen a United fan take so much joy from every set back as you do, Shan.

The changes were poor but it's clear as fish piss that we should have scored a few tonight. Atrocious defending, poor finishing and good goalkeeping cost us far more than subs.

12.) 16 Aug 2020 22:27:28
You just called me an utter child, never mind, you’ll never like me or my views, let’s forget it and move on, no hard feelings.

{Ed047's Note - It’s nothing to do with like GDS and you know why I did but like you say, move on.

13.) 16 Aug 2020 22:28:51

I don’t understand it, saying I told you so is more important than the results, I’d rather not be like that but each to their own.

14.) 16 Aug 2020 22:45:47
Gds2 you don't like i told you so's?
I think you like i told you so's just as much as the next man.
We deserved to lose because we defected worse than them.
We finished worse than them.
We played well offensively tonight to a point. But didn't finish the chances. A few were well saved a few were squandered by poor play.
Season is now over. We achieved 3rd position in the league. And 3 semi finals. There is bits to hang on to a few green shoots but its a miserable end to what's been a miserable season punctuated by a good run since jan. The C.V. break helped us enormously and i think playing in empty stadiums relieved some pressure. Hot start for ole next season or the pressure will be on him big time is my guess.

15.) 16 Aug 2020 22:48:30
I told you that you’d say that Ken.

16.) 16 Aug 2020 22:51:33
Fully agree there will be pressure on Ole if we don’t start well as our fans have no patience.

17.) 16 Aug 2020 23:02:35

Season is now over. No point dwelling on it. We can only draw (another) line in the sand and look forward to what next season brings in a few weeks.
A few weeks rest will prob do the team good!
We have identified the weak positions on this site over The last few weeks, months and years and it was evident tonight.
Bielsa for me lol! Just putting it out there

18.) 16 Aug 2020 23:30:51
Yawn. Change the record Shan. Or follow a different sport - one where you might derive some joy from watching it. Either way, act with some class and dignity. Nobody likes ‘I told you so’.

19.) 16 Aug 2020 23:45:30
Having a lot of chances and playing well sometimes (often) is a different thing. Yes we had chances, what i saw was that the match was ours to take, i think it was clear that we had superior players and when you have superior players you will have chances. As ED says they controlled well the match and its not a coincidence that in 3 of the lats matches (leisester Copenhagen and today) we didn't score from open play, expect ofcourse Lingards meaningless goal at Leicester. Problems are there to be seen mates.

20.) 17 Aug 2020 15:22:45
I was surprised we got so far to be honest.

I'll be shocked if Sevilla manage to put out an eleven for the final though. Suffered some horrific injuries out there.

Shappy, not only a powerful version of Dan James but also a version that plays RW. Would give an option of the bench when Greenwood isn't working out. Valencia used to be the same when he first came to us and he was massive before he was cursed with the #7.

As things stand we are starting the new season exactly where we finished last. Who does Ole turn to when your front line isn't working or your left full back has his annual injury or AWB is unable to cross. He still wouldn't have who he might "trust".

Eric, James is predominantly a LW and one could see how out of sorts he was throughout the season when played on the other side. Promote a youngster simply stands for proscratinate the need for a RW for yet another season. Chong isn't ready for the PL yet. He is too lightweight and gets shoved off the ball too easy. United needs a Sancho and they need it now.

Sarr won't be a bad shout given that Shappy has scouted him for half the season and has suggested him several times. 😁.

You brought a smile to my face jred. Thanks! The last player we brought in from the "less competitive league" didn't do badly for us. May be it slipped of your mind, remember Bruno? As for Shaw, he is incapable of staying fit and only Jones stays more time in the hospital than Shaw. The reason there was drop of form when Shaw injured himself was because you had to rely on a kid who wasnt ready and still isnt.

What you took an hour to comprehend the second half of your revert their Herrera? Toxic is you. I understand that English may not be your primary language so as you say you can't write in English but i assume you can read? Have you read about the net spend of United? Did you read that our spend comes down significantly once we have CL qualification? Did you know that last 3 managers have had the same complaints against the spenders? Do you have an idea about our debt and how the money has been taken out of the club?

And if you want to quote me then also mention the context of that post. It was in reply to a very specific point of Red Man. I did not say that we don't have the money, its the club who has made these noises. didn't Ole say that not every club can spend millions in this atmosphere? So what is it? You say we can win with Dortmund like we did with Everton for Fellaini or like we did with Leicester for Maguire?

Herrera, no disrespect, but i think you might be the only Manchester United fan in the world who can actually justify our transfer team. Kudos to you Sir.

You heard the term "Amateurs"? that's how Ed002 refers to the United transfer team. What does that tell you? You mention Bruno signing, so you are saying that we should not sign anyone and may be get Sancho cheaper in Jan or next summer?

Can i have what you smoking?

If only intentions were enough for league titles and champions league trophies. All those teams Herrera have a much better squad so they don't really need strengthening whilst we are playing catch up. Standing still is good but when the teams below you start moving forward you will see that you are actually moving backwards. You say Real Madrid haven't spent, weren't they La Liga champions this year? You realize Real have more CL titles in the last decade than our total trophy haul in the same period.
I didn't say we have to buy Sancho, but we need to strengthen and there are many options but the people incharge need to start moving. In case you didn't know, our season starts tomorrow. So where is the "intention" you speak of?

Herrera i also mentioned Aston Villa. Did you deliberately miss reading that? Or are you saying you are happy with the current situation? And what about Sales? Who stopped the current incharge from selling?

If it takes 2 months to negotiate a player, then these people should retire.
