Hi Ed's seems to be a new player linked to us every day as silly season approaches. Any truth in today's reports that United have approached Fulham over Sessegnon? He fits the profile of the other two players we've been strongly linked with.

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have asked about a price but are aware of serious interest from elsewhere.}


1.) 17 May 2019 20:07:24
Itd be interesting if wed be happy to meet their asking price. Spurs would also be a good option for him.


2.) 17 May 2019 20:09:21
Thanks once again Ed. I think I’ve seen you say elsewhere Spurs are interested.

Thought he had a difficult season but clearly has potential.

{Ed002's Note - Fulham decided he was not ready to step up, but Spurs are indeed keen.}


3.) 17 May 2019 20:17:49
Thank you Ed, have a good weekend.


4.) 18 May 2019 13:51:36
Sky Bet and Sky up to their usual tricks again.


 

 

10 Apr 2019 07:21:01
Ed's based on the comment below about Lozano perhaps being a Sanchez replacement, is there any firm interest in Sanchez? I did RTP but all I can see so far is that he'd be difficult to move on.

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - No. As I have explained it will be very difficult to move him on.}


1.) 10 Apr 2019 12:36:02
Thanks Ed.


2.) 10 Apr 2019 12:36:36
Ed002 is it true Sanchez signed a 5 year contract. If, so that seems an excessive contract given his age.

{Ed002's Note - 4.5 years.}


3.) 10 Apr 2019 14:38:16
Thanks ED002. Seems a ridiculous contract to hand out.

Can you give your opinion on Woodward at all?

{Ed002's Note - It has not changed from what I have previously said.}


4.) 10 Apr 2019 17:17:37
Tha is ED, I can't quite remember what you said, I'll try and search.

Do United still hold interest in Mourinho's summer targets such as the likes of Perisic and Alderweireld? Or can we expect a compromise of sorts due to other's clear resistance at signing 'older' players?

If Mourinho is to stay then surely the board either need to go after his targets, or Mourinho is made to shift his approach and target different players which would completely go against who he is and the type of player he has targeted historically.

Can we expect to see any youth players step up as the season progresses or will that purely be down to any injuries to first-team players?

Wazza

1.) 05 Dec 2018 10:45:22
I suspect we will have a very quiet January window due to the uncertainty of the managers position. We might see a player or two leave if the right offers cone in for the right players (Darmian, Rojo ect maybe) .

But I don't see any significant players joining, at most maybe a youngster or two for the academy.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 15:08:56
I think the same Shappy. When the January window closes we will have a good idea as to Mourinho’s fate.


3.) 05 Dec 2018 15:34:45
I think if a player who is of top quality becomes avaliable such as alderweireld we would still go in for him because even if a new manager comes in, he's not the type of player who can't adapt to a new manager.

But agree we should use the january window to get rid of players. Romero, valencia, young, smalling, jones, rojo, herrera, matic, fellaini, periera, sanchez, darmian etc would probably be for sale before you even get to players who want to leave such as pogba bailly and martial.


4.) 05 Dec 2018 18:02:40
I think we could see a much busier January window in general than previous years. With the summer window shutting early I think there were lots of potential deals not completed because the selling clubs were reluctant to lose players with little time to replace them.
I guess time will tell, eh.


 

 

07 Aug 2018 11:41:29
It's getting late in the window but if Pogba does leave in the coming days would anyone take Ramsey as his replacement?

I'm not saying it will happen, just trying to draw names who could replace PP if he leaves.

Last season Ramsey scored more goals, same assists per minute, less shots per goal, more on target, same passing accuracy, less cards. He basically does what we employ Pogba to do but a bit better in a weaker team (! ) .

Probably be available for a reasonable price with 1 year remaining on his contract and would take up half of the wages that Pogba does.

Would anyone else take Ramsey or offer up any other names we've not already been linked with?

Wazza

1.) 07 Aug 2018 11:49:00
Would love one of the below -
Pjanic
Modric
Kovacic
Kroos.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 11:52:51
Big fan of Ramsey if played in the correct position!


3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:26:22
would love Erickson from spurs.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 13:17:21
Prefer Verrati to any of them.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:54:34
Bolger,

I presume you mean Eriksen? They want £60m for a defender in the last year of his contract, I imagine Levy would want £250m for Eriksen, no thanks.


6.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:14
Bolger - iirc we were favourites to sign Eriksen around the time he was breaking through at Ajax but SAF thought he was too slow for the Premier League. I seem to remember us playing Ajax at the time and he did stand out.

He's a great player to watch on his day.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:03:12
Pogba is better than all of them. There is nobody we could realistically sign who will be anywhere near as capable as Pogba. Disaster if we sell him.


8.) 07 Aug 2018 14:52:00
yeah GDS that one,

not the phone company.


9.) 07 Aug 2018 14:54:14
so72,

he does have the ability to be one of the best, but he doesn't have the work rate to fulfill this.

if we are honest with ourselves he hasn't done anything to warrent the fee we paid.

if players don't want to play for us then just get rid.


10.) 07 Aug 2018 16:46:19
If we sell him we will regret it. I reckon Pogba absolutely does want to play for Utd, he doesn't get used to his strength and doesn't like Mourinho - a very common occurence it would seem. The boy has immense talent, he has ego and he bossed the World Cup with France. Whoever replaces Moirinho (when he inevitably gets the sack) will want Pogba in their team!


11.) 07 Aug 2018 17:37:31
I wish that you are right so72 however I don't think he cares about the club, only himself.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 17:27:50
Pogba has been played in a midfield two and played very well, and then in a three (his preferred position if his large agent is to be believed) and he has flattered to deceive.

I don’t buy into this whole Mourinho doesn’t get the best out of him nonsense. Midfielders should be able to play with tactical discipline and still express themselves. He hasn’t really done that since he’s returned, definitely not at the level FIFA players seem to think he is capable of. I don’t particularly like my manager, but I still have a job to do and I like the company I work for, therefore I do it to the best of my ability. PS I’m not getting paid 300k per week for it.

So regardless of ‘unfinished business’ at United for him, and taking misplaced romanticism out of the equation, he has been a disappointment and done little to show he is capable of performing week in, week out in the premier League. He has bags of ability but I’m not sure he has the mentality to really make a difference at our club. Give me SMS, Pjanic, Modric over him any day of the week.

TFM off to Palace on a season long loan. Potentially good move for all parties.

Wazza

1.) 07 Aug 2017 13:01:44
Good move if he gets the game time wazza i agree.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 13:29:33
Second that. excellent move so long as he gets game time!


3.) 07 Aug 2017 13:31:35
Definitely a great move, he is only 19 and looks to have stagnated a little not getting any first team opportunities. I think he will get in regularly for Palace and come back a much better player for it. Axel has looked more assured than him when they have played and I think that is down to Axel playing a lot of football last season while TFM sat on the bench not getting any minutes.

001, he's the talk of this page at the moment. Any chance of a PP on Bruno Fernandes?

Thank you Ed.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

Eds if you have time.

What are your thoughts on Mr Agnelli's proposed restructure of European football?

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - It is a proposal to try to placate the “elite” sides considering breaking away.}


1.) 13 May 2019 22:13:11
Thanks 002. It did sound similar, with a relegation system too. Has this proposal been taken seriously do you know? The ‘media’ claim not.

{Ed002's Note - The clubs are against it.}


2.) 14 May 2019 07:25:00
Thanks for your replies Ed.


 

 

12 May 2019 08:31:51
Morning Ed's hope you've had a great weekend.

Do United still have interest in Danny Rose as he looks to be leaving Spurs this summer, or are other positions a priority now that Shaw is back in favour?

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no interest from MU in Danny Rose right now.}


1.) 12 May 2019 10:18:51
Thank you Ed have a good day.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 12 May 2019 17:21:57
I wouldn't look at a LB this window. There are so many other positions that need sorting out before we bring in competition for Luke Shaw.

If we bring in a first choice RB then Dalot can be the rotation option with Shaw and the new RB and still play 30 games next season.

I'm in two minds about who I would want at RB though. AWB has been a phenomenon this season and appears to have the attitude and work ethic we need, with the advantage of being a homegrown player. But at his age he might block Dalot in the medium to long term. Meunier might be a better option age wise, but is he good enough defensively for the EPL? He doesn't get tested properly in France especially playing for PSG who spend 90% of most matches attacking. In truth I would be happy with either, but can see a potential draw back in each of them.


 

 

04 Apr 2019 07:35:47
It's like this page has jumped into a time machine and we're back in November again with all the negativity.

Two defeats in big games and all the progress of the past three months is forgotten. We were something like 11 points off 4th with no chance of CL qualification, now we're in the mix and have a CL QF to look forward to. Best start ever for a PL manager, our best ever away winning streak. Players we all wanted to be dropped have been dropped. Rashford is back on track.

You'd think the last few years would have humbled some of our fans. We can all agree our squad is poor. That's not Ole's fault and he's got a tune out of the players.

We're a lot closer to the top 4 now than before he took over and a busy summer lies ahead.

Wazza

1.) 04 Apr 2019 08:10:28
Wazza,

I agree, some of the posts and overreactions in the last 2 days have been utterly pathetic.


2.) 04 Apr 2019 08:39:10
I couldn’t agree more. It beggars belief that there’s so much agreement about the lack of quality in the 1st team, yet alone the squad, that people have such high expectations. I just don’t get it. especially as we rock in to a fabulous tie with Barcelona when weeks ago we couldn’t even dream about such a situation.

Get with it people!


3.) 04 Apr 2019 09:12:05
Spot on wazza. It’s a shame because it was enjoyable the last few months. Nothing wrong with people disagreeing or having differing point of views. But some perspective would be nice.


4.) 04 Apr 2019 09:32:35
1) It’s not an easy league. It contains good managers, players and a lot of money.
2) Solskjaer is not an experienced manager and needs the suppprt around him to make it work. From the board to the players. One man alone is never the solution in itself.
3) The squad needs changes and be built with a plan in mind over the medium to long term.
4) United fans are generally very supportive and I hope criticism for some is understood as passion/ opinion by others.
5) Ed’s I find your insights and opinions fantastic and thank you for all your efforts.


5.) 04 Apr 2019 09:33:45
Totally agree Wazza.
Shame on those who call themselves fans or "supporters".


6.) 04 Apr 2019 10:36:04
its the fact that all our hard work over the past few months we have just threw away with the performances in the past few games


some players have stopped performing, where are the warriors that played against psg. giving everything, that is what is frustrating we can play the way we did against psg FIGHTING.

consistency has been the problem all season

OLE has changed the way we play for the better and we were on a roll, injuries affected us and we have not been the same since but we are heading in the right direction but unless we make major changes we are looking at being a top 6 team not top 4.

we are not a title chasing team we have spent mega money and are still way off how many more times does Woodward have to fail with the recruitment, 2 players were bought in the summer when we needed major changes

its not mathematically impossible to still get 4th but it looks like we will be in the Europa again


if in the summer we don't sell and buy the right players it will be another season of top 6 football because we are not good enough to complete at the very top with the best teams.

if we are serious about wanting to challenge it will be a busy summer. that doesn't mean spending 100 million on a player just to make a statement we need the right player to fit the team

but if come august we are still lining up with the same players we will have to except we are no longer one of the big teams in terms of challenging.


but were going to win the champions league so no need to worry.


7.) 04 Apr 2019 13:24:47
Consistency has been a problem all season? Apart from when we won our record number of away games in a row and didn't lose for months under Ole. Seemed fairly consistent then to me. We have hit a slight bad patch but even then we played ok, I can't wait for Tuesday, nothing to lose and the atmosphere should be incredible.


8.) 04 Apr 2019 14:51:25
I agree GDS. Also, we have consistently created chances - even in the games we lost against Arsenal and Wolves in the league, the only thing we failed to take them, otherwise we would have been in a much better position for top 4 or even top 3.

One thing is for sure that it's going to be a interesting and testing time ahead. Next up is Barcelona at home, it's going to be tough but we are UNITED and we can cause them problems on the counter - should be fascinating.


9.) 04 Apr 2019 15:12:25
we wouldn't be in 6th place if consistency wasn't the problem.

its a 38 game season not 11.

thats why we are so far off the top 2. its not ability or for lack of creating chances.

we are consistently making mistakes. i would love to know how many errors have led to goals against us and how many points this has made us drop.


10.) 04 Apr 2019 15:25:13
Bolger, I don't think you can blame Ole for the first half of the season! There was definitely more consistency in our performances after José left. We have a fighting chance now, which was definitely more than we could have hoped for at Xmas.


11.) 04 Apr 2019 16:20:26
thats what i was aiming at noucamp that consistency has cost us this season even pre ole.

i love ole, i'm glad he's got the job he has deserved it, we needed a miracle to get close to the top 4 before he was brought in.

maybe my posts have been misinterpreted

what i was getting at was we were consistently playing at a level that was able to make us go on that 11 game streak and now that consistency from some players has gone and that is the reason we have hit speed bump.

but there's always another game so we must put it right against a Barcelona side that will take us apart if we play at anything less that 100.


12.) 04 Apr 2019 16:34:11
Bolger,

You said our consistency has cost us ALL season, I was just pointing out that isn't really the case, we were inconsistent / dreadful before Ole took over and pretty good since.


 

 

13 Feb 2019 07:11:44
Watching Sanchez this season reminds me a lot of watching Rooney after he signed a new contract when we all really knew he was past it.

He gives the ball away far too often, we will struggle to create too much with him and Lukaku in the same team.

He's never been the fastest over a long distance but he was explosive and he seems to have lost that.

He misplaced short passes and his long passes go nowhere near the target.

I was really excited by his signing but it hasn't worked out. We need better backup to Martial and Jesse, that will be proven over the next few games.

Great player once upon a time but now he looks burnt out and we'll be lucky to sell him.

Wazza

1.) 13 Feb 2019 07:29:48
I too was excited when we signed him but I always wonder in recent times "Where has his pace gone? "
He doesn't seem to beat a man, always tries to turn and gets dispossessed.

2 years back, I still remember Sanchez absolutely destroying Darmian.


2.) 13 Feb 2019 07:37:06
I was also meant to mention that it’s a disgrace to see bottles of beer thrown onto the pitch, I hope those guilty are banned. There’s no need for it at all. Mob mentality.

Di Maria did his best to wind up the fans after their first goal, he was mouthing “**** off” repeatedly. Not a humble bone in his body. But there’s no need for how our fans reacted.


Onwards and upwards to the next game. 1 defeat and 1 draw in I think 12 matches, I don’t think any of of expected that 8 weeks ago.

DLIB I think you missed my point slightly, which is because we are Manchester United the price becomes inflated because other clubs know we spend silly money.

If you took away out interest like it never happened, and other clubs were sniffing around, I don’t think the price would be as high.

I’m as eager as anyone to see our squad improved but I don’t get the “just pay it” approach. There are budgets and valuations to consider. Would like us to sign AWB, looks to have everything needed to be a top modern day full back, but he’s not worth £60m+ with 1 good season under his belt, even in today’s market.

Would be interested to know what fee Palace would quote if the likes of Everton and West Ham were enquiring. Probably half what we’ve been quoted.

Bernardo Silva is absolutely class, I'm surprised how strong he is for such a small player.

Hopefully CR7 has put in a good word about us to Bruno and Dias, both look very good.

In terms of CBs, Toby would be my first choice. I know he's a short-term fix, but we need an instant fix to our defence, we can't wait 2-3 years for a new full back and centre back to develop.

Unpopular opinion: Christian Eriksen would have out-performed Pogba had he been in our side.

Take away the penalties and the goals dry up.
He takes people on and then turns around to do it again, then loses the ball.
Do we have stats on passes straight to an opposition player?

He could be a great, but he's not interested. If PP had Cristiano's work ethic he would be truly phenomenal and we'd have the best CM in the world.

I think most people's problem, at least mine is, is his attitude, behaviour and inconsistency.
