Good morning Ed002. Do you know if there is any truth to the report that Utd have made an offer for Ruben Neves?

Thanks in advance for your insight.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of an offer.}



18 Sep 2019 14:57:47
Just read a report that we've struck adeal with sporting for bruno Fernandes for the January transfer window. Surely not?

Has anyone got any info to confirm or deny this?


{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you - Twitter was this?}

1.) 18 Sep 2019 16:55:44
Might as well have been. Caught Offside. From your wise words Ed, I shall choose to ignore it.



08 Feb 2019 08:12:36
Sorry to fire in random names but I was wondering if utd have shown any interest in Nicholas pepe. Thanks in advance.


{Ed025's Note - not as far as i am aware TB..



09 Jul 2018 20:50:18
Hirving Lozano anyone? I've been reading a lot of reports over the last few days that we've agreed €42 million deal with PSV. Anyone know if there's any truth or is it just more paper talk about random players?


1.) 09 Jul 2018 20:59:47
Im not sure. Let me ask my contacts and get back to you.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 21:29:18
If i'm not wrong isn't lozano another player whos right footed and likes to play left wing and cut inside.

If so we have plenty of those lol.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 23:36:31
He can play right wing. Plays there in Holland.



15 Jun 2017 18:01:33
Do any of the eds know if reports of utds interest in Andersen Tallisca are true. From what I've read it could be that he's trying to engineer a move for himself but I just can't tell with all the junk that's posted on't tinterweb nowadays.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by MU but he is a player Mourinho has been keen on before.}

Why are we still chasing De Jong? He would, clearly, rather stay in Barcelona, who are trying to rinse us for as much as they can so they can replace him with City's Silva.

Are we mugs? Move on. Is he really that good anyway?


1.) 04 Jul 2022 09:30:22
like Di Maria all over again. why are chasing players who don't want to come to us.

2.) 04 Jul 2022 09:32:07
Are you new to transfers?
The bigger Twitter transfer gurus say it's very close. Add-ons are being talked about.
The president didn't come and out say we want to sell him to make sure he gets good money.

3.) 04 Jul 2022 09:51:12
I don't think most fans are capable of being objective about players moving and the reasons for why they move.

As fans we'd all give our left nut to play for United and we often feel that players should feel the same way.

The difference is that players aren't fans, they are professionals making career based decisions.

As such they will care about how much money they make, who they will be working with, the location of where they will work, the ambition of the employer and the chances of success at that employer.

Given the clubs current slump I'd have to seriously question a players intelligence and/ or their ambition if they were willing to join United without any idea about how the team was going to play, what their role in that would be, how the club intends to challenge for trophies and what are the realistic chances of that.

If you're happy to join United with no plan for you and your development, or with no clear idea about how the club will push to become relevant again and win the big tournaments then you MUST be stupid or are only interested in a big pay packet.

Our problems on the pitch all stem from players lacking intelligence and ambition.

4.) 04 Jul 2022 10:02:33
You wouldn't give your left nut you said you wouldn't sign for united.

{Ed014's Note - surely not changed his story again, god forbid!

5.) 04 Jul 2022 10:20:21
Ken, if I was making an intelligent decision rather than an emotional one then no I wouldn't sign for United.

If you have a choice of playing for a club that over the past ten years has failed to help players develop and improve, has failed to challenge for top honours and has only regressed consistently for 10 years.

Or the choice to play for a club that has consistently improved players over the past 10 years, and has consistently challenged for top honours over the past 10 years.

Then the only intelligent choice is the latter and not the former. That's just common sense, something most fans are incapable of when it comes to their own club.

You place stock in some online opinions. If Romano says it’s close then I’d tend to go with that.

8.) 04 Jul 2022 09:46:26
rohanarora8 - it doesn't change the fact he doesn't want to leave Barca.
It's exactly the same as the Di Maria debacle, Real wanted money to buy Bale, Di Maria didn't want to come.
I have no idea why you would want to spend 60 million plus on a player that doesn't even want to come. it's madness!
Surely you don't get the best out of a player when he doesn't even want to be there?

9.) 04 Jul 2022 11:21:19
I think most on here would give their left nut to play for United but appreciate the comment that very few players would share that view. Players are just employees of a company at the end of the day. They will more likely want to work for Google than Halesini Search Engines Limited I'm sure. And at the moment City and Liverpool are the Google of the football world and we are the latter. United are still a big club but a less attractive on now than a decade ago for sure. Liverpool were in the wilderness for ages though and came back. It is possible. And whilst financially they did exceptionally well from sales of Coutinho and to a lesser extent Suarez they invested that money incredibly well, buying a world class centre half and keeper. They have also made some exceptionally well judged purchases I would say in Salah, Mane and one that goes under the radar a little for me in Fabinho.

United need to 'do a Liverpool' but we have taken the first step in signing a very highly regarded manager who plays attractive football. I'd say Klopp had a higher profile at Dortmund as he had won their league and got to the UCL final. Ten Hag winning his own slightly weaker league and UCL semi-final. Whatever happens this summer though regarding new recruits, we have already made our best signing.

Promoting from our youth ranks can't be underestimated too. We already have Garnacho and Fernandez receiving heaps of praise and they may well break into the first team squad now under Ten Hag. Garner has developed from his stint at Forest and is another who you'd expect plenty of first team action for along with Mejbri.

Just as it took Klopp until his 4th season with Liverpool to start challenging I expect the same of United. Its well noted that Ten Hag is looking to players he's already managed but he is also looking at younger players. I think Frenkie at 25 is the oldest we have been linked to and again I see that as a positive sign.

I don't think Ten Hag will have an issue with Ronaldo wishing to leave. He will turn 38 this season so hardly going to be the lynchpin of a side that can challenge in a few seasons time. Equally Maquire and Varane may be options now for defence but we need younger reinforcements.

There is far greater chance of winning silverware at City and Liverpool for sure. And they have and will attract many great talents. City have Haaland and Phillips now. I strongly suspect Bellingham will be a Liverpool player next season. But United are a project for the future now but still a big club. Just as Liverpool were a big club who'd fallen into a long fallow period but had future potential because of Klopp. It didn't stop Salah, Mane, Van Dijk signing for them and likewise we will be able still attract some quality additions also.

It will take time though. Think we have a few seasons of being very ordinary but will be helped by the quality of the league. 20 teams in the league but realistically that's 8 in terms of teams with any real quality. 4th spot would already be a hard task for us however players will still want to come to us. City and Liverpool can't take all the good players and keep them all happy playing time wise. Grealish - £100m signing but how much game time has he really got for City. Certainly not a permanent fixture in that side such as De Bruyne is.

We are in the mire a bit now and some choppy waters ahead. At least we have the right captain in charge now. We will get there. It will just take time. Lots of it.

10.) 04 Jul 2022 11:37:13
Fireman. Is this the same Romano who recorded "Man Utd sack Ole" video two weeks before it happened and leaked it online by accident. He went on to talk about about sources in the club told him it was because of results.

I'm not saying the man doesn't have contacts, he obviously does but this is akin to a medium telling vulnerable people what they want to hear.

It's his job. The more clicks the more money.

11.) 04 Jul 2022 11:52:04
Bang on. mumbles the guy is a millionaire of the back of gossip hungry sad little mugs.

12.) 04 Jul 2022 11:48:26
Angel he is not one but perhaps needs to spend a lot of time in the company of one.
It would be time very well spent imo and a lot better spent than allegedly watching 9 full mathes a week from right across the globe plus all the highlights.

Regarding Romano. Whatever he is or isn’t. He’s never far off the money.

14.) 04 Jul 2022 13:52:34
Ken. He’s doing pretty well from ‘sad little mugs’ then so good luck to him.

Can’t believe there isn’t more millionaires on here because there’s loads of ‘experts’ who always know better….

15.) 04 Jul 2022 14:26:42
It's the way of the social media world fireman. If you get the clicks you get the money. Do you understand how it works? It's beautiful for folks like him. His name goes viral and folk keep clicking in.
He is making a fortune and its 99% gossip and tittle tattle but the insatiable appetite for gossip among supporters keeps him posting his updates.
One you understand what he is up to you will become attuned to why and how it happens.
Clever guy. Not as clever as the glazers but clever nonetheless.

16.) 04 Jul 2022 14:28:16
I'm sure there are afew millionaires amongst the group fireman. But nobody made it from being a football expert for sure??.

17.) 04 Jul 2022 19:51:23
I am sure there are player who would rather play elsewhere or stay at a certain club but for a variety of reasons cannot.

I am sure that there are thise who give less than full effort and then there are those who will make the best of a bad lot and are professional and give their all in spite of this.

Frenkie has a decision to make on a situation that is less than ideal. I imagine that his previous anger under whom he kicked on is more than happy with the way he will react in the situation.



07 May 2022 20:39:09
I've been wasting energy on thinking how best to motivate this bunch of pretenders and the only thing I can think of is to allow some of the fans access to the squad after a game. It would either put the fear of God up the players or embarass them into putting a little effort in.

The thought of selling them all and starting again isn't realistic, although that would be my first choice.

Where did it all go wrong.

I think that’s fair Ed14. Like a tooth slowly decaying after years of neglect.

{Ed014's Note - it was the day the Glazers started their takeover bid having finally got sufficient shares

2.) 07 May 2022 22:37:00
You can't blame the Glazers for today's spineless performance. Ultimately its the players who actually kick a football run fight and work as a team on the pitch. Or it should be. Sure the manager and coaches have huge input but as fans we would forgive the players for a lack of basic quality if we see the really trying. That's nothing to do with the Glazers. It's a sad indictment of the lack of pride of the players.

{Ed014's Note - oh I wasn’t blaming them for the performance that’s down to the hapless clowns on the pitch.

Just on the off chance that anyone from Manchester United, be that player or staff, actually looks at these pages, I would just like to state that you are an embarassment and should be immediately removed from the club. Not just you but everyone. You are clearly, very bad at your job and as a United fan, I expect better. Please stop ruining my illusions of this once great club.


1.) 07 May 2022 19:57:15

Then there is the poor coach driver who takes em to the stadium sits through that dross then has to drive em back to the airport/ Hotel whilst those twats post sad faces on twittergram and how they need to work hard before serving another plate of dross in the next match.

3.) 07 May 2022 20:24:16
Totally agree. I’ve said it a few times, and I will say it again, if 90% of this squad were paid off this summer and fired out of our (the fans) club from a canon, to be replaced by a team of youngsters for next year, with the one or two first teamers that deserve to stay, I would accept a bottom half/ relegation fight in order to get rid of the useless, disinterested, lazy, unprofessional bunch of w@nkers that currently call themselves Manchester United players. I would snap your hand off now for that.

I hope the new man is watching every second of every game played this season and sits down for a very long talk with RR. He needs to come in and the whole playing staff need a reset, not just some tinkering. They are a disgrace, and in times where ordinary people and fans are feeling a massive pinch with everything in the world going up, these over paid pr*cks are turning our once great club into a giant laughing stock.

I’m done with this season, and will see how the summer goes before deciding if I can even be ar$ed with next season, but if half of the squad aren’t gone I highly doubt it.

If Liverpool do the quadruple, it will kill me but at least they will deserve it, and it will prove once and for all how far we are away from being able to compete with both them and City. This squad has zero chance of ever doing that, from the “captain” down.

4.) 07 May 2022 20:54:49
That bit vexes me 'if Liverpool do the quadruple', but I must admit, they look fantastic. I only wish we were half as good as they are this season.

5.) 07 May 2022 22:44:18
I said it when he was appointed and I will say it again. RR was not the man for the job.

Worst points return since 90/ 91 at this stage.
Worst away record since the 70’s, having had the longest undefeated run under Ole.
Demoralised and destroyed the team beyond repair, although it was already pretty disfunctional.
Tactically terrible.

Is it all his fault? Not at all. Everyone in the club should take a long hard look in the mirror but this has been another in a long line of poor recruitment decisions.

So frustrating as a fan of nearly 60 years to watch this embarrassing mess of a club.

6.) 07 May 2022 23:27:09
Keefy if RR’s appointment, and the shocking results since, mean that there is now a major clear out and squad change then it will have been THE greatest decision we could have made. However if nothing much changes personnel wise then it will have been a disaster.

This group of players, on the whole, have been useless for years, not just since RR came in. We have needed a real clear out for god knows how long, as the attitude within the squad is shocking. Unprofessional, over inflated ego’s, overpaid and with too much power. They need to go and if RR has helped make this happen, he’ll do for me, shocking results or not.

Maybe he has just been asking them to play how he feels they should be able to play, but they aren’t good enough, or dedicated enough, to do so. Maybe he is appalled at what he sees and is highlighting this so that everyone can see it, including the new man coming in the summer ??.

7.) 07 May 2022 23:35:07
Might as well be on here during the game, couldn't do worse.



11 Oct 2021 15:42:28
Genuine question. Not calling out our current manager but, what's everyone's opinion on how SAF would fare against the competition in the Premier league currently?

The teams around and above us have some truly world class leadership and I was just wondering if people think Sir Alex would be able to compete?


1.) 11 Oct 2021 15:54:08
Absolutely yes. He would not tolerate slackers he would also be more tactically aware than Ole and his motivational powers would still be high.

2.) 11 Oct 2021 16:09:42
I think so, with the money our managers have spent he would have kept us competing imo.

3.) 11 Oct 2021 16:11:12
I know it took him a few years to get the juggernaut rolling, do you think he would have been given the time in this day and age?

4.) 11 Oct 2021 16:35:49
Depends which version of Sir Alex were talking about, if its the one who came from Aberdeen with a huge point to prove or if its the Sir Alex post his 1st attempt at retirement when he revamped his tactics with Quieroz and muelensteen. Then i think he'd be right up there with the best in my opinion.

If its from his later years i think he'd struggle to compete with the likes of pep and klopp as i don't think he'd gel with the modern footballer and fall out with them like mourinho does.

5.) 11 Oct 2021 17:37:31
SAF was really not very successful in Europe and the game has become far more international as far as tactics are concerned from when he was at his peak. Even his two European Cup final successes were hardly stellar. Totally outplayed by Bayern and a lucky penalties win against Chelsea when Terry slipped. His later signings were not very good, for whatever reason. I know this is not a popular view but RVP was a one season wonder who bought him his last championship against the backdrop of an aging team. He kept insisting there was no value in the market.

A great manager in his day, no question. But no guarantee that he would have been able to cope with the current tactical realities and a transfer market dictated by agents.

6.) 11 Oct 2021 17:54:30
Shaw, I'd suggest you watch the 08 final again. We should have been 3-0 up at half time. I wouldn't call it "lucky" that we won, we were the much better team over 120 minutes.

7.) 11 Oct 2021 18:33:59
Best Manager ever, lost his way with the ‘no value in the market’ nonsense but one of the best motivators of players we have seen. Would he be able to compete in the modern game? I don’t know but he was very clever at adapting and changing. My biggest issue was how poor we were in Europe, we should have dominated the Champions League but were often found wanting. I’m not talking about the 2 finals we lost, I’m thinking of Porto, Dortmund, Leverkusen, all games we should have won.

8.) 11 Oct 2021 19:29:37
I think it's obvious that Sir Alex would have this squad performing better, whether there is enough in this squad to truly challenge I'm not sure, but at the very least he'd be a lot closer.

Shaw I think your post is slightly disingenuous for two reasons. Firstly as Mumbles says in the 2008 final we completely outplayed Chelsea for nearly all the 120 minutes. I remember thinking it was going to be "one of those" games where you should and normally would run out easy winners but fate it seems has a different plan. We had a similar game in an FA cup final against Arsenal where we played them off the park then lost on penalties.

The second reason I feel your post slightly misses the mark is that one of Sir Alex's greatest strengths as a manager was knowing his own limitations. He knew he was an average tactician and his strength as a manager was getting the most out of the players he had. He used to circumvent this limitation by hiring tactically astute assistants and coaches, he would listen to them and heed their advice. If he was our manager today I would expect that he would have some young, talented, tactically astute assistant manager working alongside himself.

That was the genius of Sir Alex and what contributed to his longevity, the ability to know his own limitations and plan accordingly.

9.) 11 Oct 2021 20:08:10
SAF won the league with Cleverly, Welbeck, Anderson, Butner, Smalling, Jones, etc in his last season.
Imagine what he would do with players of much higher quality and squad depth.

10.) 11 Oct 2021 21:24:52
TRD, this is the second disingenuous post on this thread. Of those players you mentioned Cleverly made the most starts in the league that year with 18 or half of the games. None were real regulars, good squad players at best.

He had many better players at his disposal than those mentioned, DDG, Rio, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Giggs, Scholes, Rooney and RvP to name a few.

Also truth be told the competition back then was much lower. City hadn't become the juggernaut they have since Pep took over in 2016. Liverpool were not a shadow of the team they are now. Chelsea started that season with Di Matteo as manager and ended it with Benitez as manager in one of their typical transition season's.

The league back then was not as strong as the league is now. In City, Liverpool and Chelsea we have 3 of the top 5 teams currently in Europe (probably the world) competing in our league. With only Bayern Munich and possibly PSG close to matching them on current form.

11.) 11 Oct 2021 22:39:59
Yes, we did outplay Chelsea, however Chelsea being an English team it doesn't change my assessment about SAF's lack of success against Europe's best teams. He was a great motivator, no question. He was a demanding old fashioned British manager and he knew what was needed to win the Premier League. But he was not a modernist and his style did not translate into European success, especially given the number of times we were in the competition. In his later years he became more obstinate in his defiance at the evolving transfer system, and he left a team that had run its course with a new manager who was a poor version of himself. which kind of makes my point.

12.) 12 Oct 2021 08:15:26
Great motivator but very different approach to Guardiola and Klopp.

Very shrewd and knowledgeable manager but maybe a bit too abrasive for today’s player.

13.) 12 Oct 2021 09:55:02
Prime era Fergie would have this squad competing and winning.
And the psychological battles with Pep and Klopp would of been interesting/ entertaining.
Definitely agree about Europe. Could of and should of won more. Porto and Leverkusen results still rankle now.
The Magnier/ Rock of Gibralter shenanigans were a distraction and have impacted negatively on the club in hindsight.

14.) 12 Oct 2021 14:26:11
While I agree to an extent that SAF could perhaps have done a little better in Europe than he did, I think it’s also worth pointing out that Barcelona only won four Champions League trophies during the eighteen years that Messi spent in the first team. Granted, that’s double what SAF won, but considering they had arguably the best player ever to play the game and one of the best teams ever assembled, I think it goes to show how difficult it is to dominate Europe consistently.

15.) 12 Oct 2021 16:00:27
I think fergie could have win 2 more to be honest. The year we were beaten by The Herman's in the semi 97 I think with Cantona hurt the most.

16.) 12 Oct 2021 16:01:34
What are we doing here, one of SAF biggest traits was getting the best coaches for the club and also not being afraid to adapt. Why do we think he would not be able to do that now.
Yes players are more prescious and the Mourinho approach is not so successful but I find it crazy to think the SAF would nor get so much more out of the players we have now and who would come in just to play under him.
Europe, I appreciate never materialised as much as it should have.



02 Feb 2021 19:27:27
Good, strong lineup for tonight's game. Nice to see round pegs going into round holes for a change, as in, Rashford in his preferred position.

It's amazing, the balanced look of the team when Ole's not trying to squeeze Pogba in.

Watch us get battered now I've said that.

Fingers crossed for a good performance.


1.) 02 Feb 2021 21:17:04
Well we are definitely not getting battered 😉.

2.) 02 Feb 2021 22:17:32
We played well. I think we can all draw the conclusion we are better against 10 men.
Horrible tackle for the 1st red i felt sorry for the kid and how that's a red card in martial i don't know. he was diving before he was touched.
2 good goals from Martial tonight should stand him in good stead for the remaining games.
9 nil is great for our goal diff.
Over to you City.

3.) 02 Feb 2021 22:31:38
Delighted with the win but I too feel bad for the kid on his premier league debut. He was just too wound up.

Can't disagree with anything you're saying mate, about both teams. When did we start to accept mediocrity? Take me back to Wenger v Fergie, Viera v Keane, Henry v Van Nistelroy. The good old days. Now I sound like my dad. Its official, I'm old and football ain't what it used to be.


{Ed014's Note - as fans I don’t think we do mate, we’re sadly reliant on American owners that look at money before anything else to get us challenging again.

You believe in the Arteta movement then? I'm not convinced myself. Only my opinion but your lot are only in 4th because the rest have been so bad. It seems no one wants that 4th spot. Even Chelsea are doing their best to throw 3rd away.

Is it because other than City and Liverpool the rest of the Premier league is very competitive or because, other than those two, the rest of the league is so bad? I can't tell anymore.


{Ed014's Note - no mate not yet and we are currently 2nd in a group of mediocrity which sums up everyone below the top two.

Your players are just woeful to a man and I wouldn’t touch one of them with a barge pole if I want Arsenal to win anything.

How anyone even likes Bruno Fernandes is beyond me.

Arteta needs to up his game considerably for me, we accumulated points whilst playing pretty poorly, still shipping to many goals and obvs with no top class striker not scoring enough either.

Ronaldo leaving is not new information. I'm sure I read from Ed 002 that the club would be happy for him to leave prior to the window opening.

I don't see this as the end of the world. We are trying to build a new team, under a new coach and having some9ne with Ronald's ego in the dressing room undermining anything he disagrees with must be a nightmare.

No one is bigger than the team. So long Ronnie and thanks for all the fish.
