What's this news about Juventus looking for Fellaini. Anyone heard the same?

audioflynn

1.) 17 Aug 2017 10:51:11
Dont know how they can't see him. Fella stands out in a crowd.


2.) 17 Aug 2017 11:01:25
Think they just bought matuidi. So that should be that.


3.) 17 Aug 2017 11:44:20
missed a trick there. Matuidi is a good player, really good IMO.


4.) 17 Aug 2017 22:46:58
I've said it before. If Matuidi was all that, there's no way in hell PSG would let a French international leave their ranks.


5.) 18 Aug 2017 22:32:35
Matuidi for a reported £18m, seems a good bit of business.

However we have Matic, so who cares.

We have probably all seen the reports of Atletico Madrid looking for €40 million for Trippier. If the club spend more than €10 million on him it is utter lunacy.
What are your thoughts guys?

audioflynn

1.) 03 Aug 2021 18:05:18
Couldn't care less. He is worth whatever the club are willing to pay for him.

If they think he's worth that and want him, they should get him.


2.) 03 Aug 2021 18:54:22
Angelred, that's just rubbish mate. Pay what they want?


3.) 03 Aug 2021 19:51:00
I honestly can't understand why people keep running with this narrative of "It's not my money so I don't care".

If you pay over the odds for a player, or put them on an unjustifiably high wage, it is more difficult to move them on.

Players like Jones, Pogba, Fred all come to mind. Why would anyone think it's ok for us to just break the bank for a right back, who probably isn't even better than Wan Bissaka, When we need a CDM.


4.) 03 Aug 2021 23:45:13
We need another right back ideally a snr pro. Trippier is a very good player awb will learn loads from him. If they get him for £20 / 25m that would be a good buy imo. 3 seasons in him easily. Fit as a flea and great delivery from dead balls and on the run. Cavani will live him.
I do agree that we should stick to our valuation of him and if the numbers don't work then they don't work. All deals have their tipping point.


5.) 04 Aug 2021 02:05:09
€10m or it’s utter lunacy? The way the market is going I think I’d probably be worth that these days.


6.) 04 Aug 2021 02:52:19
Nah, your just a poor man's GDS1. $3m tops ;)


7.) 04 Aug 2021 04:26:46
You can't just pay what they want. Trippier is not some young talented boy like Amad that we invest a huge amount of money for.

On top of that he is just going to be a backup for AWB and it would be stupid if we spend too much on him especially when we really need a DM.

We have got ourselves into a mess with too many players whom haven't warranted the huge transfer fees and wages.

We need to behave like a big club and stop being desperate by throwing money at players.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m sure tripper is not coming to be an understudy if he comes


8.) 04 Aug 2021 04:53:45
Ed0666, I just can't see Trippier who is soon going to be 31 getting ahead of AWB and starting too many games in the PL.

And I didn't say understudy, I said backup.

{Ed0666's Note - I was using understudy in the vernacular. What is the difference between understudy and back up? If you go to a Broadway show and the lead character goes down with food poisoning it’s the back up/ understudy that takes his or her place no? Alas were getting bogged down in semantics but I’m sure trippier is not coming to be back up but to be the lead.


9.) 04 Aug 2021 05:33:52
Cantonas best friend, why rubbish? Isn't that what the club have done over the years, pay what the asking club wants?


10.) 04 Aug 2021 06:56:43
angelred, it's time to correct the mistakes done in the past.

It's alright to pay a few million more to get a top player or some young player with great potential but we have been overpaying for even some decent enough players.

We have looked far too amateurish in transfer dealings that in the end we ended being too desperate to do the deal on inflated fees and wages.

It's almost like we have become the jackpot for other clubs having players we are interested in.


11.) 04 Aug 2021 07:13:16
Trippier would be an outstanding signing.
He’d start ahead of AWB in any game where we’d be likely to dominate the ball, for me.
Plus can cover LB.

Sell Dalot, loan Williams, get Trippier. Simple.


12.) 04 Aug 2021 08:20:13
trippier for not too big of a fee eg 20-25m would give us a much needed rb option and hopefully bring on awb.
Tbh with the players we already have I don't see it as the next position to address: more focused on the midfield conundrumas lots of different ways to go.
Will pp stay or go? Lingard do we get or try for money now or is he more valuable staying? Vdeb, is it his chance to shine?
Once we we address the mid we have gk, cb mid and hopefully striker next year for a really solid spine.


13.) 04 Aug 2021 09:16:53
LPU, a simplistic view when we have no idea the ins and outs of transfers.

Not sure why any of us on here are bothered about what we pay for a transfer, makes no odds at all.

A club has a value for a player, either pay it or not.


14.) 04 Aug 2021 09:40:26
angelred, yes there is a value for a player but whenever it's us the valuation seems to be much higher than usual. Unless we are dealing with a top world class player the valuation should be reasonable enough.

The clubs we have dealt with in the past few years seem to have sensed a sign of desperation during negotiations and have forced us to pay closer to whatever they want in the end.

It is probably all down to our amateurish way of handling transfers at the club.


15.) 04 Aug 2021 11:24:42
Gds2 I'm not sure you are worth that. I'd imagine if your wife had that on a life assurance policy for you, you would have to sleep with 1 eye open🤣.


16.) 04 Aug 2021 06:41:49
Ed0666, if Ole looks at Trippier to be his first choice then it would be the wrong move and isn't going to help AWB. I guess AWB would not be pleased with that and probably would not stick around for long.

Going further down the line in a couple of years we could once again be looking for a RB again - a position which looked resolved with AWB.

I would rather have Dalot/ Williams as backup to AWB and concentrate on getting a DM which should be a higher priority.

{Ed0666's Note - it doesent me sense to pay so much for a no 2 right back. He’s come to challenge AWB and take his place. If he does so be it and if AWB moves on then so be it.


17.) 04 Aug 2021 19:55:19
Whereas most of us want to see younger players come in who are good enough and can challenge enough to start soon, with Trippier it's definitely a case of a player probably being available who hasn't got long left at the top but is still useful and good enough to challenge what we have. AWB for me offers very little in an attacking sense and England were able to use Trippier in a few ways, either through his set-pieces or ability to at least cover well at LB. Utd haven't had many great free kick options since Becks left. Fernades has changed that a tad but it had become repetitive watching Rashford being the one to place the ball and punt aimlessly from 40 yards every game.
The £30m seems pricey but a little less and he could be a useful, if not paramount, signing.


18.) 09 Aug 2021 02:28:56
I do anyway Ken, you just never know.


 

 

16 May 2021 14:36:43
Hi Ed’s,

Would Manchester United have any interest in Adama Traore for the Right Wing position?

audioflynn

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 16 May 2021 16:57:10
Thank god😂.

{Ed014's Note - I couldn’t believe he even asked the question and I’d imagine ed02 didn’t thank me for holding it back for him! 🤣


2.) 16 May 2021 17:27:21
Dear God I do hope not!

{Ed014's Note - I think you’re safe Scooby


3.) 16 May 2021 22:06:22
Wolves should have cashed in last season.


4.) 17 May 2021 08:54:38
Would rather have him than dan james but that's not much of an endorsement if any,


5.) 17 May 2021 09:59:21
Thank god. " look mum I can run really really fast " "thats great son, now lift your head up before you knock the telly over"

{Ed014's Note - brilliant 🤣🤣🤣


6.) 17 May 2021 10:13:48
DSG, personally I think Adama Traore, and Dan James are fairly similar players, both speed merchants who look to knock the ball past the defender and run into space. While Traore is physically stronger his final ball is far less consistent that James’s. I also feel James has a better shot on him, but he is much easier to knock off the ball.
I’d sum it up that I feel more confident that Traore will beat his man, yet I feel more confident that a goal will be scored when James beats his man compared to Traore.

That said, if you gave me a choice of James for 15m or Traore for 70m, I’d be picking the Welsh lad all day long. Far easier to train James to be stronger than it is to teach Traore to have a brain.


7.) 17 May 2021 11:02:14
I must have missed this final ball that james has. Played the majority of the season in 19/ 20 and got 3 goals and 6 assists.


8.) 17 May 2021 11:21:09
Traore isn't worth a fraction of the fees touted, but he is most certainly a better player than james imo. I honestly don't think I have seen James take many players on. I think he could be a good asset though for someone further down the league as his movement isn't bad and he does work hard.


9.) 17 May 2021 11:49:13
DSG, I didn't say James has a great final ball, just that it is better and more consistent than Traore's.

James got 6 assists in the league last season from 26 starts. Traore has 26 starts this season (plus around an extra 230 minutes of football more than James's 2019/ 20 season) and he has 2 assists.

In fact apart from a freakish year last year where Traore got 9 assists he has 1 league assist in 2018/ 19 season and 2 this season.

James has 3 in total this season alone despite hardly playing and only really playing as a sub.

Ultimately neither are good enough, but James's quality and consistency in his final ball is BETTER than Traore.

I'm not saying James is a good player, just a marginally better player than Traore in my opinion.


10.) 17 May 2021 13:30:50
Think of the extra money through the sponsors. Johnsons Baby Oil.


11.) 21 May 2021 00:16:18
Can’t believe all of the hate towards him. The one thing he could use is a change of scenery.
There are many ways he could turn out to be the answer in that position Ed014.


 

 

25 Sep 2020 21:17:27
Good evening Ed’s.

Would it be in the clubs interest to terminate some of the contracts of the players deemed surplus to requirements in your opinion?
I know you mention some have been priced out of a move so there is clear interest in a few. However, for the remaining players would it be better for the club to pay the sum of their contracts and release them?

audioflynn

{Ed002's Note - No, they are not looking to do that. It can be hugely expensive.}


1.) 26 Sep 2020 07:47:01
Why do that when they can generate fees for them (as long as price them sensibly! )


2.) 26 Sep 2020 10:18:25
It would be more cost effective to approve a free transfer to another club than it is to pay out the remainder of a contract.


3.) 26 Sep 2020 11:42:45
Just have a fire sale. get what can be gained and move on.


 

 

21 Aug 2020 02:09:04
Hi Ed’s,

I hope you are all well. I am wondering if Houssem Aouar is of interest? He looks an excellent player and is apparently available during this transfer window.
He seems like the type of midfield player we need. Would he potentially be a replacement if Pogba were to leave?

audioflynn

{Ed002's Note - Not to Manchester United.}


1.) 21 Aug 2020 11:44:37
Heard he might go to Arsenal. Would be a great signing for them.


 

 

21 Jul 2019 12:00:08
OGS wanted all transfers completed before the club went for pre season. We’re 3 weeks from the opening game of the season with two deals done for new players and no outgoings.

What is everyone’s thoughts on this?
It’s a concern for me. I know we think the club would be starting negotiations with other clubs for potential targets prior to the transfer window opening but with all the talk out there, there is not much progression from what I can see on any of our targets.
With the exception of Maguire I suppose as Ed 002 said we just haven’t agreed terms, it’s probably the only case where we are seen to actively pushing for a deal.

It worries me when OGS says the team is very strong as it is etc. If the defense is not sorted out and we go into the season with Jones or Smalling at CB it is a very worrying time to be a United fan and a Manager I feel.

audioflynn

1.) 21 Jul 2019 12:11:54
Part of the problem is our bloated squad. So far only Herrera and Valencia have left, and two players have joined to replace them.

We need a few more out, and soon.


2.) 21 Jul 2019 12:29:19
In terms of transfers it is worrying we still haven't sorted out the CB/ MF position and hopefully we do so before the start of the season.

You don't need to be worried about what OGS says in the public about the team being strong. Every other manager would do the same as they wouldn't want to say anything negative which could alienate or bring a sense of mistrust between the manager and the players and have a detrimental impact on the preparations for the new season.


3.) 21 Jul 2019 12:46:42
I personally would be ok with giving Twanzebe a chance to become a regular, he looks very compose in that central defense role and got to remember he has lindelof to his left and bissaka to his right so that's a plus. But i do want rojo, jones and darmian out of the club asap, snalling needs to stay as back up for now.


4.) 21 Jul 2019 13:05:30
Letsplay!

A certain mr Mourinho went for the opposite approach last summer and that didn’t work out too well, I’m enjoying the positivity around the club at the moment, even if the negatives are still shouting the loudest at times.


5.) 21 Jul 2019 13:33:56
Twanzebe, brilliant.


6.) 21 Jul 2019 13:48:48
If you think heading into the season with the current team is good enough then I'm afraid you need to wake up


Yes we have signed 2 players that will no doubt improve us but we are still way short of the other 5 teams that finished above us.


3 weeks to go anything can happen we must have to wait and see.


7.) 21 Jul 2019 14:59:55
The manager indicated the team were not fit enough last season and all this would be put right in pre season. If the new players are not in place that fitness ethos is going to be difficult to put in place if the arrive now and OGA will have to hope that when new players arrive they can get up to speed quickly.

Two players have arrived, only one is likely a definite starter, but you could surmise that Greenwood is like an addition, if he can keep it up. Only 17 so needs to not have the weight of our expectation on his shoulders alone.

It has been shown that our central defence isn’t good enough so it needs addressing, however, the nearer the window closing becomes, the more the selling clubs know how desperate we are. Negotiations are like that so we have to be patient, however, if Lukaku and Pogba leave it would not be great trying to replace them at the last minute. Where we are now, with the team we have we will have to look over our shoulders at Wolves, Leicester and Everton, not up at Chelsea and Arsenal. A lot can happen yet and needs to, but there should be no panic.


8.) 21 Jul 2019 14:13:58
You’re probably right in saying most managers would say the team is strong etc so to not bring in any conflicts with the team. The quotes I read this morning from Zizu about a Bale show the other side though. He doesn’t want him at the club and is not shy of saying it.
Do you think more honesty and clarity from managers would be more beneficial or do you think Zidane is wrong here?

On the other side, you really have to say this is the best chance we have or closing the gap to every other team above us.
City have not strengthened. Now they may well bring someone in, but to date there has not been anyone.

Liverpool look unlikely to bring in any major first team signings so they will likely enter the season with the same team they had last year.

Chelsea have a transfer ban and arsenal don’t seem to have the budget to try and strengthen.
I think if Erikson leaves Spurs then potentially they will be weaker coming into this season regardless of Ndombele.

This is the best chance to improve. So far the Spanish league has really put their money where their mouths are to bridge that gap from last season and the premier league in all seems to be content with what they have.

If we can get a top quality CB, a RW who has pace and attacking intent and then Bruno Fernandes who I’m starting to really get excited about the more I watch him. Then I think that’s the team ready for next season.
Potentially Savic if Pogba goes or Saul if Athletico Madrid need to sell anymore.


9.) 21 Jul 2019 14:26:43
How short are we? Who have arsenal signed? Who have Chelsea signed?

I'd say there's not much between us and them. Spurs haven't done a lot either.


10.) 21 Jul 2019 16:04:51
Exactly Mort. Chelsea even lost their best player.
From the pre-season, it is clear that Ole wants us to play exciting high intensity football.
Was this not we longed for after watching LVG's and Jose's defensive style?

Focusing on youth is the right way to build for the future.


11.) 21 Jul 2019 16:05:18
Question I've been asking myself most recently.

Everyone (journalists included) seems to knock or praise every team and has opinion about how all the teams should play. If that's the case why don't they work as coaches etc?

Honestly don't get it? We all claim to know ehich players as good and bad but don't have any experience in the top tear level of football? Who are we to judge their opinions?

Thanks.


12.) 21 Jul 2019 16:36:55
We can sign players up to the EPL transfer window and sell up to the European window deadline.

Plus we will want to know who we have signed before we sell. Would be pretty dumb if the incoming transfer fell through.

People need to chill.

Sign Bruno and maybe Maguire next week and then on to out goings.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Darmian and Lukaku to join Inter.

Which leaves over a month to move on Rojo, Sanchez (maybe) and maybe Tuanzabe on a loan if we sign a centre back. I don't see Smalling or Jones going unless Jones is p/ x'ed like the stop, start old banger he plays like. 🚘.


13.) 21 Jul 2019 17:10:42
Red man, it's not ideal I must admit. Yet we live in the real world and what we would like and what is realistic aren't always the same thing.

We could have signed AWB and James a couple of weeks earlier had we paid 70m and 30m respectively. We could have Maguire in the bag already if we paid 90m for him. Same with Bruno if we just chucked 75m Sporting's way.

We could have sold Lukaku and Pogba if we accepted the 54m and 80m bids for them.

Rojo and Sanchez could also be gone is we just coughed up the 80m odd it will cost to pay up their contacts and release them.

How many fans do you think would be praising Ed Woodward though if he did that. Good old Ed got the in's and out's sorted before pre-season started. Sure he cost the club 100-150mmore than was necessary but that's fine.

You would be here front and centre demanding he get sacked for negligence, highlighting that he is driving up the prices our club have to pay for transfers. That the money he has wasted could be spent on the facilities at the club, fix the leaky roof, or sign another player the club is desperate for.

I'm starting to feel that no matter what the club does it will be in a no win situation with some fans.


14.) 21 Jul 2019 17:23:07
Mort chelsea spurs and arsenal all finished above us.


We are the team who most needs to improve and atm the team as it is.

Is nowhere near regardless of hazard leaving


Spurs are still strong and have signed somone and arsenal finished above us.


15.) 21 Jul 2019 18:45:02
Shappy

Completely agree with that.


16.) 21 Jul 2019 20:57:45
Bolger they only finished above us because of the lack of fitness in our squad killed us. We get fitter we close the gap.


17.) 22 Jul 2019 01:20:48
Mort it was not just a lack of fitness that cost us. The squad was paper thin on quality.
Martial went missing even when fit so did lukaku and pogba No depth in quality in midfield and defence etc etc.
Lots of reasons not least being as fit as we should have been.


18.) 22 Jul 2019 08:26:56
We finished 4 points (1.3 wins) behind Arsenal, 5 points (1.6 wins) behind the great Spurs and 6 points (2 wins) behind 3rd place Chelsea. That is not a chasm.
We scored more goals than Chelsea and 2 less than a rampaging Spurs.

We did concede more than Arsenal and many more than Spurs and Chelsea.

By fixing the defence alone (AWB and Maguire) I think we may bridge that gap.
Add in that our attack is now more balance (we have a right side) and the possibility of more midfield reinforcements I don’t believe the gap is insurmountable at all.
We will see.

Proper muppets those guys. Nearly everyone is just repeating the same news that’s been going on for weeks.
If you bring up a name that has been in the news for weeks, you’re not doing anything other than repeating what’s already there and trying to sound like ‘you’re in the know’.
Absolute tosh.

Rumours that Pogba is being offered 500k a week to stay. If that is the case, the club is gone to ruin. If Ten Hag has asked the club to try and keep him then I have zero faith in his ability to improve us. If he has not been included in the negotiation then it would appear that he has no control over transfers.
Pogba needed to leave the club a number of years ago and any attempt to keep him is absolutely ludicrous.

I haven’t seen United play that poorly in quite some time. No player was better than 4/ 10.
Couldn’t make a pass, moaning the whole time. Slow passing and movement. Fred will be Ole’s downfall. He is a terrible football player and yet he persists with him, which is just lunacy.
