Just heard Utd have been asking around a lot for high profile players but are getting flat out turned down due Ole and lack of strategy.

Only one coming up could be Dembele in Summer.

Big fallout with Andreas and most of squad. Gomes related and who is now willing to stay but wants time.

Utd Road

No surprise there we are hardly an attractive prospect, poor on the pitch, clueless off it.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 12:53:00
Utd Road, do you mean Moussa Dembele from Lyon or Ousman Dembele from Barcelona? I am assuming the striker from Lyon. The rumours make sense that some players say no, given our current situation. And if this fallout means that Andreas sits and Gomes gets more of a chance, I am all for it.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:28:03
Moussa - Ed002 has said we have interest along with a Chelsea I think.

Summer deal only is what I read.

Apparently there’s big issues in the dressing room a lot of it stemming from Young being sold, amount playing time Andreas gets over Gomes and others. Martial has been one of the most vocal and said it to Ole.

Utd seems as joke and to be a right laughing stock to a lot of players now.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 17:26:47
We won't attract stellar signings with ole in charge . He is now coming out with Cantona quotes, can't build a roof first, without foundations crap, sure he reads of a script. We won't sign any players untill the new manager comes in the summer, because we can't carry on with this puppet being in charge.
Sad times at this club, glad Chelsea are crap too, or we would be 15 points of top 4.



21 Jan 2020 18:45:09
Ornstein on Piatek: "Milan either want to sell him for €35m or loan him with an option to buy and within that option, there would need to be some favourable conditions that would turn that option into an obligation. "

Sharing is caring brothers and sisters

Right old goal hanger of player on a loan would be banging.

Wow. in span of 6 days. I am writing again.

"We do not do sensible dealing here" otherwise we wouldn't be "looking" at even in 21st day of window for down to barebones team.



21 Jan 2020 08:10:18
Rumours Utd are looking at loans this month to pad the squad. Hoping we bring ‘Arry Redknapp in for deadline day.

Only seen links to the Uruguayan CDM from Inter. I like this, all CDMs should be from Uruguay!

Latest rumours round up twitter and Reddit
Bruno Fernandes is close.
Still talk of Saul
Jude Bellingham with a loan back is being done.
Koulibally now apparently done for summer.
Ed Woodward to Lille to do the Soumaré deal?

Lingard to Miami lols

Some right fun stuff. dreams but can you imagine the scenes if any of this comes off.

Twitter and reddit,

I would believe anything posted on those sites.

2.) 14 Jan 2020 21:12:07
Don't you know everything on twitter is true 😂😂😂.

4.) 14 Jan 2020 21:27:04
If we end the window with all of that having happened I will be a very happy chappy 🤣.

Good luck on twitter mate. I used to be on there and had to leave. The united twitter mob take misery and depression about the club to new depths.

6.) 14 Jan 2020 22:09:37
Take it all with pinch of salt on Twitter, some of the stuff said is hilarious but crazy. every now and again there’s something good!

Some good communities on reddit would recommend the Muppetiers.

Just sharing the rumours:)

7.) 14 Jan 2020 23:16:43
I'm not even going near any of the Utd stuff. I'd just get cross. Sticking to politics for now :)

{Ed033's Note - I would imagine that the run up to the next U.S. Presidential vote will be more crazy than the docu-drama series known as Brexit.

8.) 15 Jan 2020 09:07:19
Best to just stick to reading on twitter Noucamp99, don't get sucked into responding, it really is the place where all the crazies meet.

9.) 15 Jan 2020 00:56:02
It's so polarised on there, Ed033. Just people shouting at each other. What happened to constructive dialogue, and respecting other's opinions? I've just seen some dame announcing she's unfollowing Vince Vaughan (I had to google him), because he dared to be polite and spoke to Trump (I knew him) . This is what we've come to. Just stick our fingers in our ears and go, nahnahnahnah. Sad.

{Ed033's Note - Didn't you go on our conspiracy site at some point, Noucamp99? It's moved away from politics and now onto the nature of reality.

10.) 15 Jan 2020 10:46:25
Ed033, I can't remember what I had for dinner last night.

{Ed033's Note - Sounds like you didn't eat any omega 3s.

11.) 15 Jan 2020 18:44:46
Koulibally will be 29 in the summer. I hope we’re not squandering more money on a player we’ll need to replace in 3 seasons.



13 Jan 2020 18:16:42
Phil Brown saying Poch for summer talks have began at Utd.

Apparently there are some issues around the current set up and decision making he wants changing.

Utd Road

1.) 13 Jan 2020 18:51:32
Who is Phil Brown mate? Not the one who used to manage Hull is it?

2.) 13 Jan 2020 20:40:13
Pilib De Brun, does a podcast called Beyond the pitch.

3.) 13 Jan 2020 20:47:09
He’s a broadcaster of sorts. Been on talk sport and podcasts.

Supposedly he has some links in the club give pilib bruin a search.

4.) 13 Jan 2020 21:24:49
I was thinking maybe poch would be Barcelona manager by the end of the week.

5.) 13 Jan 2020 21:52:55
Did he not say he would never manage them because of his love for Espanyol?

6.) 13 Jan 2020 21:53:04
Seems Setien is going to Barcelona Deano.

7.) 13 Jan 2020 23:02:32
I'll admit, I had to Google Setien. Not much in a managerial career, unless I'm missing something, to make you think he could manage Barcelona. Sounds a bit familiar.

8.) 13 Jan 2020 23:19:23
If anything surely Poch is waiting to see how Madrid do or possibly Juve.

9.) 14 Jan 2020 06:43:53
Nou, his time with Betis proved he is a very good coach, very highly thought of.

10.) 14 Jan 2020 06:45:01
I wonder why Poch would want to join a club that is a dithering sentimental mess, that didn’t make a move for him when he became available, where they seem to prefer an ex player despite having zero relevant experience and a win ratio that gets fans all excited when it goes near 30%? If Poch is still keen on us, we are indeed lucky. Barcelona ditch their league winning manager, top of the Spanish league whilst we sit by filled with such emotion, every day our manager reminds us of 99. Once we were elite.

11.) 14 Jan 2020 06:48:57
Bit harsh on Setien Stevie. His Betis side were one of the most attractive teams to watch last season. With Barca’s side, could be something special.

12.) 14 Jan 2020 08:38:34
Thanks for tip, really interesting podcast by the fella, enjoyed listening to it.

13.) 14 Jan 2020 08:50:36
To be optimistic, IF Poch does come in, he’ll find lots of Potential to work with, given youngsters in first team and reserve teams emerging. Of course he’ll need a few players but he really could hit the ground running.

And I think credit needs to be given to Solskjaer for the transitional role he’s taking as the squad is thinned our. He must know he’s not there in the long term, but he’s doing the job the club needs at the moment t and I think history will thank him for it.

14.) 14 Jan 2020 10:11:14
Listened to the podcast and backs up everything Ed002 has said about the amateurish way the club is run.

Please please Mr Woodward, get an experienced Sporting Director in to oversea the footballing side of the club, step away from the footballing matters (though appreciate it’s not just you - the whole structure needs a reboot by someone who knows how to organise the footballing side of the club) and focus in the commercial stuff that you’re so good at.

Can see why Poch is allegedly insisting that the club need to get a SD and has the final say about players before he considers joining us.

15.) 14 Jan 2020 11:01:22
Red man, would you really want to work for an organisation that sacks an employee the moment a precieved better candidate comes along?

We have a manager, whether you like them or not. I can see the argument for hiring a better manager. But to sack a man just because someone else is available is a terrible way to run a company.

Who would want to work for an organisation that sacks you the moment someone they feel is better becomes available?

16.) 14 Jan 2020 11:26:02
Shappy that’s nonsense. You always want the best man for the job and if the current person is o to of his depth, you make the decision that best serves the organisation.

17.) 14 Jan 2020 11:29:34
Giving OGS a permanent contract at the time they chose to rather than waiting til the end of the season to make a decision . now that's a terrible way to run an organisation.

18.) 14 Jan 2020 10:42:02
Take a look at this, gives you a good understanding of the coach.

19.) 14 Jan 2020 12:47:08
We are a brilliant prospect for any manager. The club is in such a mess that anyone who comes in will be viewed as being on a 'hiding to nothing' so will get minamil blame if performances are not great, and a massive windfall if it all goes tits up.

20.) 14 Jan 2020 12:58:12
Oh dear Shappy

If someone is not performing as a football manager they are sacked and replaced. They have a contract and that is what happens. (Unless you are the emotional sentimental choice. ) Look what Barcelona have done.

There is more than one better choice than OGS, hundreds with more relevant experience but now you want to pull on the heartstrings of whether to sack an employee if there is better out there. Next you will tell us that we can’t sack players off and buy new players even if there are better out there!

Just shows how much sentimental emotional baggage is invested in the manager.

21.) 14 Jan 2020 13:26:34
Shappy when your student days are over and you go back into the workplace looking for a job you will soon find out that the ideological world you speak of does not exist.

22.) 14 Jan 2020 14:10:32
On top of all this, despite my thoughts Poch should be appointed, I still prefer OGS in charge above Moyes, LVG and Mourinho right now.

23.) 14 Jan 2020 16:35:40
I only looked at his stats. He took Betis to 6th place, which for one of the historically bigger clubs in Spain, should be achievable, and they're in the bottom half just now. Seems to have been a bit of a journeyman before that, even managing Equatorial Guinea.

It just seems sometimes that any foreign manager who does a half decent job with a smaller team in their own league, instantly is better than some of our own. Look at Emery, feted by many at Seville. Flopped. Silva did well in Portugal with Estoril and Sporting, came here and flopped. There have been others. Meanwhile we turn our noses up at the likes of Eddie Howe, who's worked miracles keeping a club the size of Bournemouth in the toughest league of them all, whilst still trying to play attractive football.

24.) 14 Jan 2020 18:11:29

Not sure it’s the best time to big up Eddie Howe at the moment.

I am not saying we should have Setien or whatever his name is but if he took Betis to sixth he has more relevant experience than Ole has for us!

25.) 14 Jan 2020 19:38:22
Nou, not sure which La Liga Real Betis you mean, but the one I'm talking about are certainly not one of the bigger clubs in recent history. Last year's finish of 6th was the highest in about 12 years. in fact in 2010 they were relegated and played in the 2nd tier. Very good choice by Barca, I'm sure he will do well. Take a look at the video above, better than just looking at his stats.

And yes setien is a much better coach than Ole.

26.) 14 Jan 2020 20:04:03
Yep, the other team in Seville. Put it this way, I've heard of them a lot more growing up, than I ever did of Getafe or Villareal or Sociedad. Joaquin was a top player, one of my favourites. Great kit as well. Bar a few years here and there, they were always a La Liga team over the last 40 or 50 years. They're also a La Liga winner way back. All of which to me, makes them one of the historically big teams in Spain, rather than just over the last 12 years.

Red Man, no, it's not going well for them at the minute, although injuries haven't helped, especially when you've a small squad. But nearly every manager of a smaller team will come a cropper at some point if they stay there. They can't keep working miracles. It's just whether they manage to get a bigger move before that happens.

27.) 14 Jan 2020 20:44:31
Well we can talk about history and look back at the wonderful things they achieved way back when. But you have to look at what he done with this particular Betis team. And most recent history tells us that they have not been a top team for quite some time. And was definitely not just 'achievable'.

You also have to look at his philosophy and the way he wants to play the game. He has a very distinct playing style that was starting to wield results even though Betis were one of the poorer teams in the league. Plays lovely and exciting football that I'm sure will translate with better players.

I'm not sure what kind of game we play at the moment.

28.) 14 Jan 2020 21:28:25
He's 61, and Betis have been his biggest club to date. Maybe I've missed something.

29.) 15 Jan 2020 06:32:50

And he is still a better more experienced manager than OGS.

30.) 15 Jan 2020 10:49:34
I never mentioned Ole once, Red Man. My point is how we overlook good young managers in the UK, but get all excited over the latest foreign 'name', with arguably less on their CV.

31.) 17 Jan 2020 12:27:03
He's 61 managing Barcelona now. They usually know a thing or two about coaches 😊.

Anyone care to ponder what Neil Ashton and his media business has been brought in to do?

Lots of guesses but will throw one to start:

To sort Ole’s media skills!

A sun journalist? Horrible.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 13:11:39
He’s the guy who presents Sunday Supplement on Sky.

He’s had to quit those roles due to conflict of interest with his new work at Utd. Seems moves are a foot. there’s just some much PR/ media done poorly he could be doing anything!

I’d like to think:
Ole media skills?
Club PR (spinning failure as progress with the youth players, jam tomorrow)?
PR for new owners?

YouTube/ Twitter/ APP is pretty good content but for me Roma’s team are god level. - they post a missing person notice with new signings and things like that. I would be so proud if Utd used their reach a little more selflessly.

He’s a high profile guy to be coming into one of the biggest clubs in the world. Must be a specific remit.

Same feelings on the Sun. I work for a global company and had full row a meeting in front shareholders about our business doing ads with them. Despicable rag.

Any room for one more?

Massive silver linings this season.

Utd Road

1.) 13 Jan 2020 10:21:13
Absolutely, I would much prefer to see 1 or 2 academy kids step up and contribute to the first team every season than big money signings.

If Garner and Henderson step up and force their way into the first team next season I would enjoy that much more than the potential signings of Bruno and Saul.

2.) 13 Jan 2020 12:13:11

Whilst I agree with you, we need to experienced quality players.
Ideally another RW, James is still Young. Another forward, LB, CB DM and AM.

Hopefully the Fernandes deals goes through, but I can imagine It going wrong again.

We actually have a better chance of CL qualification than we did last season. Hopefully we buy a couple of players this Jan transfer window.

3.) 13 Jan 2020 12:39:05
I think that the top 4 is a real possibility if we get the Bruno deal over the line, and if we can get Pogba, Mctominay fit and playing well until the end of the season without any more injuries.

Hey Ed002

How long do you think the Man Utd board will stick with Ole?

I would have thought his performance is being questioned and with Poch potentially available there must be some
LVG >Jose style temptation.

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - They do not want to make a change - not making the Champions League for next season will result in discussions about the way forward.}

1.) 03 Jan 2020 10:22:03
Ed002. Do you mind me asking why they don't want to make a change?
Is there a long term plan they are working towards? That would be ruined if they sack him now?
He is not a very good coach or manager they have got rid of 3 previous coaches all of whom had better credentials and were doing a better job imo.

{Ed002's Note - They are desparately seeking a steady situation after going through the changes with Moyes, van Gaal and Mr Mourinho. They were very unhappy about losing the deal with Allegri and even though they spoke with a third part about making an informal approach to another coach and had a discussion with another third party provider of services to football clubs, players and coaches, about a change - they failed to follow it up.}

2.) 03 Jan 2020 11:03:39
Thanks Ed, seems like the default pattern of the last few years.

If you don’t mind a follow up.
Does not having UCL or failing to meet set objectives affect the compensation for the departing coach? Similar to real world employment?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea of the exact terms of his contract.}

3.) 03 Jan 2020 11:35:41
Ed002 thanks.
I do understand the want for stability. But we are not getting stability under ogs we are falling a lot further behind.
I can only see it ending with him being fired eventually its as plain as the nose on your face that he is hopelessly out of his depth.
Thanks for your time.
Happy new year.

I really like it. It’s what Chris Wilder does and creates overloads all over the pitch. It’s super smart and stat man Dave did a good break down of the tactic on YouTube.

We have the perfect defenders for it on paper. Probably need more at CM and AM and RM but we know that already

I’m a big fan of wilder btw excellent coach.

I think we should bring exit clauses in here.

They should be the total value of the remaining contract value of the players.

Would mean players wages are proportionally linked to their value and pull in the crazy transfers.

Down side is for small clubs but they get bent over anyway. would be better in my opinion and give players some freedom.

Imagine not being able to leave your job you hate for a dream job unless the new employer pays compensation? Well paid conscripts.
