H Ed,

Is there any truth in the Ronaldo interest recently reported?

Singh

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what is being reported but there is a plan to get him and his wages off the books at the end of the season. I would not hold your breath about a return to Old Trafford.}


1.) 11 Nov 2020 14:10:11
swap him for pogba.


2.) 11 Nov 2020 17:16:11
Thanks ed and we shouldve gone for him 2 years ago.


3.) 11 Nov 2020 18:36:54
PSG will need a big galactico type signing when either or both of Neymar and Mbappe depart. Though they can't both be going to Madrid and Barcelona are seemingly skint! Ronaldo won't be coming home to United. We were privileged to see one of the world's greatest ever players play for us. It is in the past though.

ED,

Is it true that Filip Stefanovic is heading towards Man City? .

Thanks.

Singh

{Ed002's Note - It is true that they were one of the three clubs to make an offer.}


1.) 24 Oct 2020 11:41:42
Ahh, thanks ed.

I don't know if we got the better player in Pellistri or if Stefanovic will be better in the long run.


2.) 24 Oct 2020 13:46:44
Pellestri played 90 min for the U23s - did anyone see how he got on?


3.) 24 Oct 2020 14:05:41
Personally I'd have preferred Stevanovic over Pellistri based on two things. Firstly Stevanovic is European based which means the culture shock wouldn't have been as great making it easier to settle in. I always feel with south American players that the lure of Spain or Italy is high. Secondly, Stevanovic plays primarily from the left, with Amad Traore also signing and playing from the right, I would have thought it better to sign one player for the right and one for the left.


4.) 24 Oct 2020 14:49:37
Filip looks ahead of Pellistri in some aspects but both have great potential, adding young quality players in all front for me sound good, and keep in mind not all of them will work out so adding many as possible depending on what is needed isn't bad. We lacked RWs options either from the academy or in the first team. So Adding 2 young players in Amad and Pellistri who looks more of AM long term was good move going forward. Elanga looks good for u23, provides options for LW.


5.) 24 Oct 2020 22:02:10
I agree with Shappy, i would prefer Stefanovic because looks the better player and plays at left. Although i am not so sure Pellistris long term position would be rw. I think he is a player that wants to cut inside based from what i have seen at youtube and yesterday at under 23 in first half. I think he will become a Messi type lefr winger.


6.) 25 Oct 2020 20:04:39
Sorry if I'm misunderstanding Ed002, have City agreed to sign Stefanovic or is be mulling over the offers? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It means they were one of the clubs to make an offer and the deal is one that may well attract the player to sign.}


7.) 25 Oct 2020 21:39:58
Ah ok, thanks Ed. How have you been spending post transfer window? Glad of the rest from this site? Ha.

{Ed002's Note - I have plenty of things to keep me busy thanks.}


8.) 26 Oct 2020 08:42:57
I can imagine Ed, don't work too hard.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.


9.) 31 Oct 2020 15:49:44
City seems a deal now, at least according to Stefanovic’s club.


 

 

29 Aug 2019 11:10:21
Smalling to join Roma on loan.

I think we have had a decent summer to be honest.

Getting rid of Lukaku, Sanchez and Smalling in one window is some achievement.

Singh

1.) 29 Aug 2019 12:01:35
Yet Rojo is still here.


2.) 29 Aug 2019 12:05:25
Would of been better if it was rojo or jones.


3.) 29 Aug 2019 12:12:14
Add Darmian to that list. I can see them all gone by this time next year as well as Young and Matic.


4.) 29 Aug 2019 12:34:55
Nobody wants rojo because he's garbage. He'll have to be an end of contract release.


5.) 29 Aug 2019 13:05:19
Rojo is hard to sell due to the restrictions of countries he can play in.


6.) 29 Aug 2019 14:25:11
Not to mention the restriction of sports he's any good at.


7.) 29 Aug 2019 14:36:12
And he's one of the worst players we've ever had. Usually injured and whenever he makes it to the pitch he's a red card waiting to happen. No ones going to pay money for a player who doesn't play.


8.) 29 Aug 2019 15:05:27
accoring to the rags rojo was stopped from joining everton because of the fee for the player. that and everton were seen as rivals for 4th place.


9.) 29 Aug 2019 20:18:07
Guess Rojo can play left back too (if sorts) if he can stay fit.


10.) 30 Aug 2019 13:36:02
Who is this Rojo guy you all talk of?

Tea lady?


 

 

14 May 2019 21:57:58
Ed is Griezmann leaving this summer?

I thought he was leaving in winter 2020 and Is Barcelona his most likely destination? .

Singh

{Ed004's Note - Looks like he will complete his move to Barca sooner than expected}


1.) 14 May 2019 22:28:38
Ahh thanks ed. Think me missed the boat on him a few years ago.


2.) 14 May 2019 22:53:58
Lucas hernandez has left, rodri looks like he's going to city and now griezmann as well as godin and filipe luis.

If there is one team that plays with the fight and intensity most fans want united to play with its atletico, we should have been involved for these players in all honestly (maybe not filipe luis) . Maybe they are above our level now as we need to look at the tier below.


3.) 15 May 2019 07:50:15
Godin is 33 nearly 34.


4.) 15 May 2019 08:57:49
I think we probably dodged a bullet with Griezmann a couple of summers ago. I get the feeling if he had come then he’d just be another on our list of players to offload this summer. For all his goals, his attitude stinks. The whole documentary thing last summer now this announcement yesterday, he’s another circus act who thinks he’s above playing football.


 

 

06 May 2019 20:53:35
Who would be interested in Sane and just how good do you guys think he is?

I don't think he is too happy at City and he could well be on the move soon.

Singh

1.) 06 May 2019 21:01:48
I think he’s a cracking player Singh, however I think we need a right winger as we have lots who can play on the left. If martial was too go and sane was available I would gladly bring him in.


2.) 06 May 2019 21:48:05
Brilliant player. Never going to happen.


3.) 06 May 2019 21:50:46
Id sell Martial and Sanchez to go for him.


4.) 07 May 2019 07:11:01
He’d be our best player, he’s got everything needed to Reach the very top.


5.) 07 May 2019 11:13:18
Given how pep was barking at him to run not walk, he would be treated the same as martial is.

He would also fail with the same issues that all our attackers suffer from, we are unable to get them the ball because we play out from the back like a poor mans wimbledon from the 90s.


6.) 07 May 2019 16:59:42
Never happen, we are fishing in the wrong pond now. If he came to us over bayern real barce, i would shout mercenary.


7.) 13 May 2019 07:08:24
He's a bit of a bel end anyway, got enough of them.

Ed,

Incase Ole gets sacked, Could you let us know which managers will be under consideration for the UTD job.

Thanks.

Singh

{Ed002's Note - That would be speculation.}


1.) 06 Nov 2020 14:44:36
Okay thanks ed.


2.) 06 Nov 2020 15:15:09
Blanc, Giggs, Pochettino if they do it before PSG get knocked out of the UCL and they sack Tuchel, and maybe Gerrard.


3.) 06 Nov 2020 15:45:44
Loll gerrard your having a laugh and i don't think it would be Giggs.

I would do a better job then those two and i don't know abc about football.


4.) 06 Nov 2020 19:43:49
Not sure Giggs is viable while the assault stuff is going on.


5.) 07 Nov 2020 09:49:39
What about Arsene Wenger?
At least he has won the league and knows how to set teams up.


6.) 07 Nov 2020 11:05:42
MOTZ1, are biggest issue currently is we can't defend. I don't think Wenger is the man to sort that problem out.


 

 

07 Oct 2020 14:50:27
Quick question.

Why would United extend Ighalo's deal and then go on and sign Cavani.

I love Cavani and he will bang a lot of goals but why would you extedn Ighalo to January when you know that your going to sign Cavani or If you know Ighalo isn't going to be getting games.

What is the thought process behind this?

Singh

1.) 07 Oct 2020 14:58:43
Ighalo's contract was extended on 1 June, Cavani wasn't in United's transfer plans then.
Ole wanted a forward but right wing was the priority and if we signed Sancho, Greenwood would have moved to CF with Martial. But when it became clear that wasn't going to happen, money was freed up to get a forward and buy as many youngsters as possible.


2.) 07 Oct 2020 15:04:16
It's obvious, they never intended on signing Cavani until 3-4 days ago when it was clear they wouldn't get Sancho and the club quickly cobbled together a deal the biggest name player they could easily sign to save face.

That said, Cavani is a good player, and many a great deed can be done by mistake.
My brother got drunk the night before he had training with the fire brigade, so drunk that he overslept and missed going. That was the day of the 7/ 11 bombings in London, they happened in the station he used at the time he should have been passing through. He may or may not have been involved in that terrible incident had he not got pissed the night before. Pure luck.

Likewise Cavani might turn out to be our best signing of the summer. If he does well then great, but that doesn't mean he was a well thought-out, planned signing. It means they got lucky.


3.) 07 Oct 2020 15:30:42
We were still playing association football matches in june due to the lockdown/ house arrest policies.

We obviously couldn't sing a striker whilst we were still playing the 19/ 20 season so we extended ighalo to cover those matches left over in the season.


4.) 07 Oct 2020 15:58:25
I think the key factor is Cavani never intended to come. But then he could find another team.


5.) 07 Oct 2020 17:18:54
Cavaini is cheaper than ighalo and better so looks like a good deal.


6.) 07 Oct 2020 18:11:30
Thnx fr d replies guys!

Out of Sanchez and Dembele who do you think has made a worse signing.

Singh

1.) 27 May 2020 21:41:25
That's a tough one.

On one hand Dembele has cost Barcelona more money than Sanchez has.

Yet when fit Dembele hasn't been a bad player. He just hasn't been 140m good. Whereas, Sanchez not even for 5 minutes in his United career has looked even remotely decent let alone good.

Finally Barcelona will most likely be able to recover some of the money they have spent on Dembele. No where near what they paid. But something. Whereas, United will likely have to either pay a proportion of Sanchez's wages while he is on loan, or pay off his contact or a proportion of it to get him off the books.

For that reason alone I think Sanchez was a worse signing. While minimal impact on the pitch and a destabilising influence off it. Sanchez needs to go down as our worst ever signing.


2.) 27 May 2020 22:43:33
As shappy says its a tough question but with sanchez you have to consider the oppurtunity cost of signing him.

At the time in jan 2018 which people actually tend to forget, we were actually playing quite well under mourinho in the 2017/ 18 season, comfortably got through in our champions league group and were comfortably second to what everyone considers a top quality man city side.

Martial and Rashford were playing very well on the left wing when given their turn and lukaku was having a good season up top. We had a clear problem at no 10 as mkhitaryan was disappearing and we did not have a proper right wing player (which we ironically still don't have two years later)

We signed sanchez to play on the left wing which made our team even more lop sided and clearly stalled the development of rashford and martial and that season came to a depressing end and fed into the following season when jose got sacked.

With dembele, although he cost a lot, that was partly due to the enormous money that Barcelona received for neymar and Barcelona still had messi and suarez which has allowed them to win la liga and remain competitive in europe.


3.) 28 May 2020 11:58:57
Sanchez for me. Appreciate the money argument may centre on Dembele’s overinflated price tag. He’s younger though and has at least some re-sale value / may well come good elsewhere. Sanchez has just looked woeful though. Seems 5 years older in 1 season at United. And on £400k a week or whatever ridiculous wages he’s on he is incredibly difficult to move on. Glad to see Woodward looks to finally be moving away from ‘elder Galactico’ syndrome. Spending £30m on a 16yo midfielder who could be anything and £80m on a 20yo right winger we’ve been crying out for look long term investments that will hopefully come good. Missing out in Haaland for £20m looks like it will really come back to bite us. Interested to hear the inside track on how close we came to sign him or whether he was always Dortmund bound.

No more Sanchez type deals though please Woodward. And yes Gareth Bale that includes you!

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine - there was no £20M deal for Haaland.}


4.) 28 May 2020 18:04:31
Halesini, Haaland was only available to German club's for a few in the region of 20m. To all other clubs, ourselves included the fee quoted was north of 60m. Which in hindsight of seeing what he is doing at Dortmund might seem worthwhile, at the time considering he had only ever played in a much poorer league was a huge amount of money to gamble on him.

{Ed002's Note - It wasn't like that either.}


5.) 28 May 2020 19:07:32
It's Moussa Dembele of Lyon we need.


 

 

12 Mar 2020 16:15:08
Ed,

Do you think the corona virus issue will effect Pogba moving countries this summer?

Thanks.

Singh

{Ed002's Note - Do you seriously expect me to be able to answer that?}


1.) 12 Mar 2020 16:25:59
Ahh, It was worth the ask.

I think he will sign a new contract and stay put.

Thanks Ed anyway.


2.) 12 Mar 2020 20:11:58
Singh, just out of curiosity, were you being serious?


3.) 12 Mar 2020 21:11:29
He won't get it as he has been self isolating since August.


4.) 12 Mar 2020 23:47:06
Are you talking about Pogba redarmy?


5.) 12 Mar 2020 23:51:40
since august more like last 3 years.


6.) 13 Mar 2020 00:10:19
Redarmy i love that.

So we are not after a rw now such as Sancho which is good news as I think buying him doesn't make sense afyer buying Diallo and Pelistri.

Ozil has achieved a lot more then Pogba has ever done.

Comparing Ozil and Pogba is laughable.

In regards to the original post, we need to just get rid of Pogba and build the team around a new CM like Niguez if we can get him and move forwqrd as a club once and for all.

I did say if we play anything like first half of our last premier league game we will lose.

Its Ole's fault for picking Maguire and Lindelof together when Tuanzebe had a great game last time around.

Its his fault to pick two highly defensive Mf in Fred and Scott instead of VDB who had a good game last time around.

With Martial missing chances that could happen to anyone but if he does miss chances like tht again then you know he's not upto it.

The manager has to take the blame especially not taking Fred out when you know he was playing like a lunatic yesterday.

Anyways nothing surprised me yesterday but I just wished Cavani was here 5 years ago because he is just CLASS.

On a side note when Bruno has a quite game we look like we will lose every game.
