Ed have utd shown any interest in sarr from watford at all? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Ismaila Sarr (RW/LW/F) has had a disrupted season after moving from Rennes and has become available with Watford being relegated and Wolves have enquired after him - wanting to be kept informed just in case Adama Traore is sold. Crystal Palace have him on their list of potential Wilfried Zaha replacements, but he is not their first choice, although they could turn to him if their first choice heads elsewhere. Liverpool are interested inasmuch as he is another player like Adama Traore that Klopp has had his timgue down the throat of, but whilst he would make a good replacement for Shaqiri condideration would need to be given to (a) would Sarr want to limit his playing time to that which Shaqiri gets, (b) he is not Home Grown, (c) he would block Harvey Elliott's progression, (d) he would cost £40M or thereabouts, and (e) like the last few players asked about, would depart for AFCON when it happens as he is Senegalese. I am not aware of any approach to Watford by Liverpool or Manchester United, but either club may have spoken with his agent. If Mane or Salah were to leave LIverpool, it makes a great deal more sense and would provide the funding. If Manchester United are done with Sancho it would be another option. Cristiano Giaretta (a strage choice) has arrived and it is unclear what his remit will be - and Watford don't need the cash so cannot be forced into a cheap sale.}

Few journalists reporting periera has asked to leave. Stating he wants more game time.


1.) 13 Aug 2020 23:02:03
Always said he’d be a great 5 aside player. Very skilful. Not a Premier League player though - matches just seem to pass him by. He’ll find a good club on the continent and make a decent career out of the game though and wish him all the best.

2.) 14 Aug 2020 08:46:17
I find him very frustrating. He seems like a good lad, he's got the skill to do better, doesn't seem to be particularly lacking in any area, and I can't see why he hasn't pushed on. It feels like he has all the ingredients to be a much better player than he is, but for some reason he just can't make them all work.

3.) 14 Aug 2020 10:14:50
No loss.

4.) 14 Aug 2020 11:12:38
I think the issue with Andreas is he is good at many things but has no stand out skill, as such he has been shunted around the pitch to try and find his best position. Is he a wide player? A No.10? A No.8 or even a No.6?

He's a good squad player to have when you have a lot of top class options around him, but if the players around him are on par with him then you have a problem.

He's a bit like John O'Shea, an average player who can cover multiple positions. You could get away with John O'Shea in your back four when you had Neville, Ferdinand and Evra along side him.

But if he had Brown, Silvestre and Richardson then suddenly John O'Shea looks woefully short.

I think Andreas would do reasonably well on the RW if he had Bruno, Martial and Rashford playing with him. Not great, but certainly good enough for a few games.

If he wants to move on and play every week then I wish him the best, it's not a long career and I fully understand why at 24 he isn't happy to play a bit part role for the next 3-4 years. He seems like a good lad with his head screwed on. Hopefully he can have a career he is happy with.

5.) 14 Aug 2020 15:08:38
have to disagree shappy, he doesn't have a position problem, he has a lack of football intelligence problem.

People keep saying he might make it in Europe, i don't think so, i watched him a bit when he was at valencia, he had a habit of killing attacks making horrendous decisions at utd its the same. Hopefully other teams will take a chance on him as he is a skillful player and we will be free of him.

6.) 14 Aug 2020 17:29:44
CSM, I think he has had very little football at a senior level in a fixed position to gain the knowledge of how best to play that position.

7.) 14 Aug 2020 17:59:02
At utd maybe but he was consistently played on the left for valencia and pretty sure i remember reading him being played no 10 at granada before that, he could play any one position undropped for a whole season but it won't solve his lack of decision making ability issue. You mentioned O'shea, he is the exact opposite of O'shea, O'shea knew what he was and wasn't good at and stuck to what worked, Periera seems to have a highly inflated opinion of his ability.

8.) 14 Aug 2020 22:11:00
Ole should pack his bags for him and drive him to any club that wants him.

9.) 16 Aug 2020 10:14:09
That seems like a poor use of the managers time MJ. Let Jones drive him, I've always felt he was wasting his potential as a taxi driver by trying to play football.

Hi ed you have said in the past that chong and gomes both wanted out. Today i read that chongs agent has said the club have different views on the player than ole. Is this the case or is it just a lack of playing time and club ambition. I remember it took the club a while to get him so i wouldn't have thought they would want him to leave.
Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you have read but the situation is that tey are out of contract and can speak to sides from countries other than England and Wales. If MU wish to keep them the process is simple - good offer and a roadmap.}



09 Aug 2019 16:11:40
Hi ed do you think the current format of the transfer window is now here to stay? I only ask because i'm sure club meet last year about maybe taking it back inline with europe.
Also thanks a lot for all the info over the summer. The addition of the podcast was nice idea too.


{Ed002's Note - The clubs (at least most) voted for it to change because they were stupid enough to think everyone else would follow. It may well change again in the future but for now it will remain unchanged.

Ed001 will be pleased about your comment on the podcast.}

1.) 09 Aug 2019 16:26:40
Thanks for the info ed appreciate it.



26 Jun 2019 10:25:53
I think its about time everyone stops and takes a breath. Take step back whatever will be will be!
Have a good summer gents eds thanks for the support.




12 May 2019 11:37:53
Hi eds few rumours of interest in alexis from italy. Is it just usual nonsense? Or has any interest in him developed?
Thanks as always big thanks for the season before the summer nonsense starts.


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of him being offered to an Italian side but it would not be financially viable.}

1.) 12 May 2019 12:05:52
Getting Sanchez and Pogba out the door is possibly the most important business the club needs to do this summer. Both massively disrupt the dressing room for different reasons.

If we are to rebuild the garden the weeds need ripping out first. That might leave a massive bare patch in the lawn but the garden will never flourish if the weeds are allowed to remain. They will draw all the resources to themselves and choke the life out of any new shoots.

Rip them out root and stem. Then and only then will growth be possible.

2.) 12 May 2019 12:17:47
Thanks a lot for the info ed have a great day.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 12 May 2019 12:56:54
Getting Ole Gonner our non-manager is a rather more important defenstration.

4.) 12 May 2019 13:02:39
Its not Sanchezs fault he is on 500k a week or whatever and he has a better attitude then Pogba. He is just a bit reserved where as Pogba is the main problem and players like Martial, Rashford and Lingard hide behind him.

Its another thing Sanchez isn't playing well or past his best but you can't put fingers on him b3cause of the wqge he g3ts or his attitude.

5.) 12 May 2019 13:21:58
Singh, I would question Sanchez's attitude. Against Huddersfield he didn't fancy it and asked to leave the pitch at the first chance he got. Are his wages his fault? Certainly not, but he did choose money over the chance to win trophies. Pep was in for him until his wage demands put City off. That suggests that money was his motivation for this move and not football. He gets the money regardless so why give your all.

His attitude is better than Pogba's, but that isn't saying much. Like saying Mussolini's rhetoric was better than Hitlers. Marginally but neither were great.

Sanchez appears to work hard on the pitch when the ball is near him, but other than that he doesn't do the leg work required. He has one of the lowest distance covered per 90 minutes in our squad. Pogba on average runs nearly twice as far during a game. Makes more sprints, and attempts and wins more tackles.

Either way attitude aside, the wages and the bonuses Sanchez is on is destabilising the dressing room. DDG is demanding parity to Sanchez, and why shouldn't he based on form? Both were signed with more than half an eye on the commercial benefits each of them could bring the club. That is why Ed went the extra mile on their wages. They are exactly the type of signings the club should be steering well clear from in the future. To re balance the dressing room they both need to go, regardless what is costs the club.

6.) 12 May 2019 13:24:28
Yes never ever sanchez fault, he is just the highly paid victim with problems all around him. We will just ignore the fact he has as many goals in the premier league as kasper schmeichel has assists.



09 Aug 2018 13:39:20
Just a post to the eds. thanks a lot for all the info kept the summer exciting. The sharkopod was a very good listen as always. The banter from all eds is top notch and just a big thanks for putting up with a load of lads that ed up like whiging children during the window. Fantastic site keep up the good job and hope the last hours aren't as painful as they seem.


{Ed001's Note - cheers W16 appreciate that mate.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:14:30
Ironic the odd transfer window when we don’t get an Ed 02 info embargo and we don’t do any business 😂😂😂😂.

Ed with jesse n pogba being in similar situations with there contracts if united used either of them in player swap deals would they then have to compensate them for leaving the club. Would it also fall into profiteering?

Hes one of a few that gave his all for every manager since fergie. He might not be the standard that we want to be playing at but he can leave with his head held high! Good luck to him.

Id have no issue the club buying sarr he's got a lot of potential. Sancho might be thinking will we qualify for champions league next year. Are we going to be able to win any trophies. Things that are more likely to happen at dortmund.

If smalling was one of the best defenders in serie a. It says more about how poor the defending is in serie a.

Not just utd or villa related but the amount of screams you hear from players with no fans in the stadiums i'm sure its giving refs something else to think about weather its a foul or not. There was a couple last night that were laughable. Its just another way players have found to cheat/ bend the rules to there own advantage. I didn't hear smith saying that traores one on the edge of the area in the first half wasnt a free kick he managed to end up well in the area with the dive.

Altho i don't agree there crap there far from consistent players like martial shaw pogba maguire are on 200k plus a week and give little to nothing in terms of consistency of there own form. I do feel as a utd fan we sometimes see our squad with our rose tints on. When reality seems to point to the fact we have a squad full of potentially great individuals that have little to no interest in putting the team first. Its almost were at united we've made it attitude and there getting paid however they perform.

Gds the fact that you try to belittle the site and the efforts of the eds to give most of us readers or posters a place to discuss or vent is childish. Your opinion is no more important than anyone elses if you can't see that maybe you need to get out n get some fresh air for a few weeks. If you can't be challenged for what your posting why bother. Fyi the site is still great i for one apreciate the efforts of the eds and all the posters on here!

Dsg I completely agree but it makes me think why the club haven't accepted offers for surplus players surely fees and wages would come off of the clubs losses. Players like smalling rojo should have just been offloaded as its well documented they have no future at the club.

Im intrigued to see how the season bans out. Atm atleast it feels like we can only get better. Was a poor performance but a vital win. Tough games coming up so its going to be interesting.
