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.}

Thanks for the info ed much appreciated.

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.

If i was director of footy at utd i'd be on the phone to players agents saying if u wanted a new deal or a wage increase hand in a transfer request instead. Weve been rewarding mediocrity for too long now.


1.) 27 May 2021 09:57:57
If I was director of footy I'd be sacking the manager.



09 Apr 2021 08:27:35
Watching fernandes last night go down because the wind had changed direction and the dive by ederson the other night. Surely we need some sort of retrospective action there's been some shocking decisions this year. But half of the prem could easily get a bafta at this rate. Lacazette would definitely scoop best sound.


{Ed077's Note - do you mean for the pen?}

1.) 09 Apr 2021 09:26:48
Yes ed personally thought it was abit soft. But maybe i just miss the good ol days where ud only see players roll around when they were hurt. Infact i don't even think they did then.

{Ed077's Note - the whole match last night was full of similar incidents, for both sides. Some of the refereeing decisions were a bit iffy to say the least.

2.) 09 Apr 2021 11:32:37
I have no objections with Bruno going down easy last night. The amount of times they kicked rashford and didn't get a card- yet if our lads breathed on them, they rolled about screaming.

3.) 09 Apr 2021 13:26:03
I agree with you 💯 Caolan_2. The amount of times Rashford got kicked, especially on his ankles, gave the impression that it was deliberately done. And the amount of fouls they committed without being booked, but when a united player did, instant yellow card. The game wasn't the best to begin with and the refereeing made it even more disjointed.

4.) 09 Apr 2021 21:00:36
Could you not see the red around brunos eye? He got hit in the face and that's a pen all day long imo.



22 Mar 2021 08:27:45
I understand the frustration of people but what a f****d up world we live in where mindless creatins go on social media and racially abuse footballers. It really is beyond belief.


1.) 22 Mar 2021 08:45:55
I completely agree, abuse is never acceptable. Although I would question whether Fred is actually a footballer.

2.) 22 Mar 2021 09:35:05
Disgraceful behaviour, it's a football game!
Shappy, that is just a stupid comment about Fred.

3.) 22 Mar 2021 10:19:02
Shappy would you question whether Ole is a coach. There are some lesser talents in our squad, but none will improve under a rank amateur in charge.

4.) 22 Mar 2021 11:23:25
Inhope don’t draw out his red tinted specs please. Seen enough crap defending ole.

5.) 22 Mar 2021 12:18:09
Sim, why is that a stupid comment?

What about Fred makes you think he is a footballer?

His only really assets is he can run, well Mo Farah can run but he isn't a footballer.

Surely a footballer should have ball skills, good technique, can control and pass the ball, maybe even have a good shot.

Does Fred have any of those?

Does he have a good reading/ understanding of the game?

What actual skills does he have that makes him a footballer?

6.) 22 Mar 2021 15:07:09
Shappy - i wasn't referring to whether he's a good player or not. My point was about the racial abuse he got online.



22 Jan 2020 16:55:08
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.

Shappy i wouldn't say he looks set to get top 4 again if results go against us this weekend. we could be right in the dog fight of top 4 with 2nd to 7th only having 6 points difference and 3 of those teams have a game in hand on us also with 1/ 4 of a season left to play.

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.

I think the obsession from most of us with donny is he hasn't been given game time to fimd any rythm. How can u come in one game n then have a couple of minutes next game n expect to look good? i'd like to see him play a few games in a row n judge then. I've seen 3 seasons of fred n he's still cack. He must be sensational in training though! I don't see us buying anyone this window it baffles me more that we haven't shipped anyone out the squads so bloated with overpaid average players.

Surely just because of batistuta? He was class i always look back at older football when we were treated to some great players that were never labelled world class. Nowadays u only have to score a goal in a important game and you world class!

Since fergie young atleast performed to the best of his ability in mulitple positions! He was always willing to go out n give his all! A quality that i wish that more than half our squad now had!

Interesting tuchel lost his old team the title 6 months after he left. he's also managed to get to back to back champions league finals with 2 teams!

Not saying he's the next big thing but certainly better than our manager. Also managed to stamp his identity on chelsea and get players that were seen as not wanted under lamps playing well within 6 months.

Not bad if u ask me, considering in our squad our manager manages to get performances out of about 15 of them.

Also has ole managed to get 90mins of football out of the team since he's been there?
