Martial gone. officially. Such a wasted talent if only he had the mentality of a Ronaldo or Messi who knows how good he could have been!


1.) 27 May 2024 20:50:09
Plenty of players have the talent, very few have the mentality, resilience and work ethic to be elite level.

2.) 27 May 2024 21:35:42

3.) 27 May 2024 22:34:02
Ed are we looking to replace Martial with Sesko and are there any other targets we would be looking at to replace Martial? .


{Ed002's Note - Sesko is likely heading elsewhere. The options are as I previously explained.}

4.) 29 May 2024 01:53:48
Where will Martial likely end up Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Anthony Martial (W/F) Has to go but there little clear interest. Juventus had an interest but he would not be first choice now. Out of contract in the Summer with Fenerbahce keen to take a chance, else it will be the Middle East or a new contract.}



26 May 2024 12:55:17
Hi ed, any chance we look to keep amrabat or was it too little to late for him? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Sofyan Amrabat (DM/CM) Loan has largely not worked out well and Manchester United will not take up their €25M option. As such he will head back to Fiorentina at the end of the season. Agent is already doing the rounds with some interest from Juventus, Crystal Palace, Fulham and Milan. Player will want guarantees of game time. Fiorentina will want him sold but it is unlikely any of the interested sides would pay more than €20M.}

1.) 26 May 2024 13:42:30
Well he did himself huge favours yesterday with that performance.

2.) 26 May 2024 13:18:38
Thanks ed…Pity as he seemed to finally understand his role and when played there he really did well. Seemed fitter too. He was immense yesterday so at least he goes with a medal in his pocket!

3.) 26 May 2024 15:42:06
If we could get him for £10m would be a good squad player if he was played in the right position.

4.) 26 May 2024 15:45:58
If he could replicate yesterday’s form on a more consistent basis £20m would be a snip.

5.) 26 May 2024 19:50:19
I agree if a reasonable fee can be agreed he’d be a good addition. Finally looked a little more like the player I remember from the world cup and we need options.

6.) 27 May 2024 10:30:28
I don't know. I still get the fear when he takes more than one touch. A few times he was a whisker away from losing possession in dangerous areas, but managed to dig out a pass at the last second. Never really looks in control of the ball. Like his engine and attitude, though. Is that enough?

7.) 27 May 2024 15:45:54
I think Amrabat would be excellent cover. He’s taken time to adapt but at his age and move from Italy it is to be expected.

It was similar to Sabitzer last season.

8.) 27 May 2024 16:24:34
Looked like he had the game of his life on Saturday. Not going to get to that level every week. And as someone above mentioned, he is milliseconds away from losing the ball far too often imo. Need similar but with more mobility and pace.

9.) 27 May 2024 21:45:35
He had perhaps 2-3 good games and 1 excellent game. It should never be enough to earn a contract at United.



21 May 2024 21:18:57
Hi ed,

I'm sure this will be asked by a few so I might as well go first. will pochettino be an option now as the new United manager if we sack ten hag? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I would think it unlikely.}

1.) 21 May 2024 22:15:12
Seems an odd move from Chelsea. I like Poch. Think he is a good coach.

2.) 21 May 2024 22:28:57
Thanks ed. You can see the journos connecting the dots as we speak lol Maybe Bayern Munich would be a good spot for him. Be interesting to see what Chelsea do now too. I wouldn’t be shocked if we stick with ten hag. I don’t agree but it wouldn’t surprise me.

{Ed002's Note - Not so sure.}

3.) 21 May 2024 22:52:31
I'm a big fan Eric.
Stars Hever never signed for him to take the United job. Was my preference when eth was appointed but I didn't happen as Ed says its unlikely this time also.
I like his demeanor and I think he is a good coach.
Hope he gets a good gig somewhere and does well.

4.) 22 May 2024 08:32:00
And your preference has been sacked by how many clubs since? The other grass isn't always greener. Just saying.

5.) 22 May 2024 09:22:38
Spurs reunion at Bayern with Harry Kane maybe….

6.) 22 May 2024 11:29:27
It seems part of the fall out at Chelsea was his desire to have input into the players purchased and Chelsea wanting a coach who is given the players as on the continent. Looking at whether he could come in for us, would the same not be the case with the hierarchy looking at a similar model.

{Ed002's Note - It was a small part of the issue but Manchester United will consider him - as will Bayern Munich - but they are struggling to find a Plan B solution.}

7.) 22 May 2024 13:11:35
Our current grass is not even green.

8.) 22 May 2024 13:49:10
Vincent kompany now in talks with bayern.
Really interesting appointment if it were to go ahead.



14 May 2024 10:57:47
Thomas Frank come on down. the latest link to the managers job. I have to admit he would be higher on my list than Southgate or Potter, very good manager who I like a lot.


1.) 14 May 2024 11:34:14
Roll up roll up. We are doing the manager merry go round without actually committing to anyone. Well in the press anyway.

Frank would be an interesting one for me and is highly regarded by Klopp, has done a decent job with Brentford. Whether he fits the style the new leadershop want to impliment going forward is anyones guess.

2.) 14 May 2024 13:00:35
Would anyone be interested in trying to pinch Emery? He seems to do well wherever he goes, playing good football.

3.) 14 May 2024 13:25:40
Frank is an interesting option, I’d favour him over Southgate.

But I still wouldn’t put him above keeping ETH.

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Frank (C) Bayer leverkusen are considering Frank as an option to replace Alonso if he departs. Some support for Frank at Manchester United but it would be a significant step up.}

4.) 14 May 2024 15:51:07
Is alonso still not sure to stay at BL next season ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No he is staying, but when he leaves they will be interested in Frank.}

5.) 14 May 2024 21:31:53
OK thanks.

6.) 14 May 2024 21:53:32
Frank Spencer.



29 Apr 2024 14:10:42
Marcel van der Kraan (Dutch journo) says eth is top of the list for the Ajax manager job. He knows that and they will wait to see if he's available. Apparently their new ceo is part of the group that manages eth so there's a real desire for this to happen. Might be the best scenario for all involved and also make it easier on all parties to agree a settlement.


1.) 29 Apr 2024 14:25:27
Apologies apparently the guy who started SEG who manages eth is the new technical director at Ajax not ceo. He wants eth and after the shockers that Ajax have had since he left it’s no surprise.

2.) 29 Apr 2024 18:24:34
Hope he gets the moves and both parties get back to heading in the right direction.

3.) 30 Apr 2024 09:24:26
Don't want him to stay wazza?

4.) 30 Apr 2024 09:58:52
It’s not a case of what I want Ken.

5.) 30 Apr 2024 10:11:51
Thank God for that.

INEOS nearly as slow in decision making as the glazers it seems. let's hope they are better at transfers than the last lot then! ?? I'm joking of course but we could really do with a decision soon as there's lots to do this summer and not much time to do it.


1.) 30 May 2024 22:16:46
Tim, wasn’t it alluded by Ed that things could align with the financial year end? I’m not sure if I read it wrong but I’m sure it was suggested as a time for an announcement if the manager is leaving. It could have just been a poster though, I’m not 100% on who said it.



27 May 2024 18:54:58
I see malacia popped up on Saturday. Does anyone actually know what's up with him? He hasn't even trained all season. very strange.


1.) 27 May 2024 19:07:28
He had a knee issue and the first surgery was a botch job. Same issues came back when he started training so they had to re do the op.

2.) 27 May 2024 19:49:19
Will he be ready for next season u think?

3.) 27 May 2024 20:53:02
Didnt he go against the clubs recommend surgeon and went for his own, then it all messed up and ended his season.

4.) 27 May 2024 20:55:08
You’d imagine so. Or at least be back training in some capacity.

5.) 27 May 2024 21:29:44
The impression I got was that the lad had some injuries compounded by personal issues off the pitch. Hope he’s doing alright. It can be hard to uproot your life and move abroad at a very young age, especially with the added pressure of playing professional football.

6.) 28 May 2024 00:14:24
I hope he's OK. Seems a nice lad with a good attitude. My young fella had been telling me he was supposedly in witness protection related to some case with Quincy Prommes ?.

7.) 28 May 2024 14:45:57
I think you mean, Quincy, say hello to my little friend, Prommes, Stevie.



27 May 2024 14:32:37
Reports coming now that eth is going/ gone. Suppose we will know for definite very soon. Tbf I can see the rationale for sacking him, but also keeping him. I'm not going to go nuts either way as I trust INEOS and what they are building. I'd be more worried if they changed their plans based on the fans because as we know we are a reactionary bunch and a lot of those who call for him to stay will be wanting him gone if we bad at the start of next season. Hopefully whatever they decide is the right choice and we can build a positive future.


1.) 27 May 2024 14:37:18
I’d be very worried if they suddenly decided to keep him off the back of one good performance.

2.) 27 May 2024 15:18:53
Seen reports he will be kept on but have a reduced roll in transfers.

3.) 27 May 2024 15:52:11
Euros are weeks away, transfer window not open for a month. Making up stories about United is all that's left and will they won't they sack Ten Hag is the easy headline when you have sweet FA to print.

4.) 27 May 2024 16:48:37
Personally tired of all the news and very hard to make any sense of it. I think they will make a change although firmly in the camp eth should stay.

We are supposedly talking to 10 managers if you believe what's being written, that have very little in common or even remotely playing styles. If there is grand strategy in place you can't be acting like a drunk sailor in port and sleeping with anything that moves and everyone knowing about it. Something rings weird with all of it. Our current managers basically has said don't give a damn, fed up with it and gone on vacation.

I would like to think the grand plan would be surgical and must have a very specific person/ type in mind. At this rate we will be talking to the Southampton manager, who just won promotion or whoever won promotion from league one to the championship.

If we are really talking to all of them then they don't know what they are doing is my first instinct. Like players all these managers would have files and tons of background research, I would hope.

Liverpool made their appointment without much fuss and no drama, we are the circus in town on everything.

Something tells me its Tuchel and all of this is just a masquerade and trying to look like they really went through a review as it will upset a vast majority of the fan base letting eth go.

5.) 27 May 2024 17:35:27

How many more times can we recycle the same rubbish.

I won’t be quick to trust the judgement of a company who sack the best manager we’ve had since SAF.

6.) 27 May 2024 18:02:17
Do you really trust Ineos to know what they’re doing Tim?

7.) 27 May 2024 18:31:50
Was going to say the same thing Spenno. INEOS have done nothing yet to warrant anybody’s trust in terms of decisions at the club.

8.) 27 May 2024 18:51:17
In the same way have they done anything yet to make us distrust them? I’d be less believing if they flip flop based on the whims of fans. Make a choice and have the courage of your convictions.

9.) 27 May 2024 21:15:47
Well they have moved on Arnold and Murtough and brought in Wilcox, Ashworth (almost) and Omar Berrada.

SJR nows seems to be running the show as the largest shareholder, with Avram sidelined.

10.) 28 May 2024 02:16:47
It's all press speculation. Take a breath. We all know that they will not actually have spoken to 10 managers about the job. That's just total rubbish. SJR and INEOS are not that wet behind the ears.

SJR whispered in Peps ear but just gave ETH a curt handshake.

OMG! Pep to United!



25 May 2024 23:19:29
Bruno was magnificent today. He's been crisiticed many times for his performances as captain but that today was a United captain from minute 1 to minute 90. His workrate and energy was infectious. Shout out to amrabat too, been excellent the last month, probably too late to convince us to keep him but shows that when fit and in his favoured position he has a lot to offer. So happy with that today!


1.) 26 May 2024 06:11:19
Bruno as a CF is working very well imo.
Even if he loses shape or presses high, it doesn't matter.
And time and again he just sprints back into midfield and nicks the ball and we counter.

I wish eth played bruno as CF early days, we always had players who could play behind the striker.

2.) 26 May 2024 07:11:12
Spot on Tim. He was, and is, superb.

If only we’d had a better candidate for the captaincy, perhaps people wouldn’t be as harsh on him.

3.) 26 May 2024 07:13:30
Bruno as CF only works in a counter attacking team, which will work only against the better teams.



25 May 2024 17:26:40
What a result what a weekend? What happens to eth now? If he does go he can go with his head held high. Brilliant setup and performance against the best in the land. My wee boy is buzzing he's running around like a nutter?. Looks like u were right Ken, name on the cup lol. Trophy and Europe confirmed. What's next who knows but let's just enjoy the now GGMU!


1.) 25 May 2024 17:46:29
Thank you Ten Hag, two trophies in two years, not too shabby.

2.) 25 May 2024 17:50:49
Well deserved today. The signs goal was absolutely outstanding. Congrats to everyone. I am delighted.

3.) 25 May 2024 17:51:07
That felt better than any trophy we've ever won since 2008!

4.) 25 May 2024 18:24:26
An achievement not seen since sir Alex. 2 trophies, 2 seasons . A fabulous performance, both tactically and mentally .

This manager deserves the final year .

5.) 25 May 2024 18:30:31
We wouldn't be discussing the future off the manager if we had put that effort and concentration in all season. Really happy for Ten Hag today. Whatever will be, but today he got it spot on and deserved his moment.

6.) 25 May 2024 18:36:29
Brilliant win.
Well set up, well drilled and super committed.
We did exactly what Madrid did to beat them.
The theory is great but the team applied themselves to a plan they believed in today and did it well.
Full credit to players and coaches all did great today.
Pass of the season from Bruno. Sublime.

7.) 25 May 2024 18:57:32
Are you forgetting Jose deano? 2 trophies 1 lost final in 2 seasons.

8.) 25 May 2024 19:08:34
That second was delightful from the tram as a whole vision movement technical quality. It is what I want to see. Its moments like that that I love United for' the thrill the joy the ecstasy of those moments.

We didn't particularly win a lot of trophies when I was a kid but Unitedd always produced moments that stirred the soul' today in that moment the did again and I loved it's bloody loved it.

9.) 25 May 2024 19:10:46
2 trophies, 2 successive seasons Ken. And keeping ten hag for another year is prudent imo. MY opinion. Do you think he should go? You haven't mentioned it much .

10.) 25 May 2024 19:38:39
Lol deano, for the clueless ones, he has to go. 2 years, 2 trophies under countless issues both on and off the pitch. He has done incredibly well. Seems a good, honest bloke too. One that refused to speak with Bayern to concentrate on the United job.

We don't deserve him tbh.

11.) 26 May 2024 14:59:27
There's a few here this fanbase doesn't deserve angel ?.

That should have said good pre season so we hit the ground running next year. We will especially need that if we have a new manager, with new ideas and tactics.

22 May 2024 20:29:43
Whatever we decide we need to get it done and move on. Lots of players to sell, new faces need brought in and we still haven’t got the director of football sorted. We need to have all our ducks in a row so we can have a good season and hit the ground running next year. For 2 many summers now we’ve been lagging behind, disorganised and hesitant…let’s hope this year sets the tone in a good way.

Too many football experts on twitter and YouTube. Embarassing. If we start next season poorly they’ll be calling for his head before Xmas. The glazer thing to do would be to listen to the mob and appease the fans, INEOS I hope are different, base your decision on facts and a clear vision…. nothing else.

Fair assessment that. I’m sure eth will pop up somewhere else it’s not like we are ending his career and he’ll get a nice handshake as he goes.
