Ed I'm hearing that pereira is off to ajax is there any truth in this? Would be a decent move for him imo.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot help you Danny. He certainly has an option elsewhere.}

1.) 31 Aug 2020 10:57:14
Danny of ask the players potential leaving periera and smalling are the 2 that i think will do well. Dalot also if he gets the right move.

2.) 31 Aug 2020 12:05:14
Thanks Ed what option has he got if you don't mind me asking? Ken I agree with you those 3 could all do well with the right move. I'd like us to keep Dalot I like him, better option that tfm, I actually think Dalot will end up being a rw.

{Ed002's Note - Benfica - we have been through that.}

3.) 31 Aug 2020 12:22:01
Sorry Ed I missed that one. Thanks for the info.



25 May 2020 14:08:19
Hi eds, I have read ferran torres will be allowed to leave valencia this window as his contract expires next summer. Do we have an interst in him? And if so do you see a possible move happening? He certainly would fit the profile of a young and hungry player that we seem to be looking at now.

{Ed002's Note - Ferran Torres (RW/LW) considered as a potential Jadon Sancho replacement but likely priced out of a move to Borussia Dortmund - will end up at Real Madrid or Barcelona in all probability at some point. But, if Salah were to depart Liverpool he could well become an option for them but for now that is not the case. The player has made no secret of his desire to join Barcelona. Valencia have a replacement lined up but the €100M asking price for Torres would need to drop to make a transfer anywhere viable this summer. Juventus has enquired after his availability but would need to make sales to fund a move. A third party has suggested to Manchester United that Ferran Torres would be a better option to Jadon Sancho as the deal would be far, far cheaper for them. Valencia has proposed a player plus cash for Torres proposal with another side recently but it is not seen as a good deal by the other side at this time.}

1.) 25 May 2020 15:53:28
Thanks for the response and your insight ed002. I hope we go for him, from what I've seen he's going to be a top class player.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what will happen. Valencia want cash and Barcelona are the preferred destination - but need to raise cash for everything they are looking to do, or trade players.}

2.) 26 May 2020 12:59:03
Ed in your opinion who would be the better option for Utd, torres or sancho?

{Ed002's Note - Ideally both players want to play for other sides - and that for me might be a reason to look elsewhere to find a player that fits and wants to play for Manchester United (or at least doesn't want to play elsewhere). The costs for both players are huge and that itself is going to be a problem - particularly with the demands of Sancho's agent. Although the costs for Sancho may have reduced a little it would be a significant. Sancho would be a lesser risk than Torres.}

3.) 26 May 2020 16:38:46
Ed002, with both players wanting to play for other side's, who do you feel would be a good fit for the RW role at United?

{Ed002's Note - By a long was Federico Chiesa - but it is not going to happen.}

4.) 26 May 2020 19:52:36
Fair enough. Is that because United don't have a strong interest in him or because he is moving elsewhere?

{Ed002's Note - Certainly the first and probably the second.}

5.) 26 May 2020 20:30:55
Good stuff Ed002. Thanks very much.

6.) 29 May 2020 12:42:09
Hi Ed, hope you're well. Would it be remiss of me to ask what is Sanchos preferred destination if he has one?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea.}

7.) 29 May 2020 13:22:22
Thank you Ed, hope you're doing well.



30 Apr 2020 13:09:24
Hi eds, do we have any interest in havertz? And if so can you see a move happening? A brilliant player already and would fir the profile of player we are looking for imo.

{Ed002's Note - No, none.}

1.) 30 Apr 2020 15:37:06
That's a shame, thanks anyway Ed.

{Ed002's Note - If Manchester were to sell Bruno Fernandes there would be a space in the team.}

2.) 30 Apr 2020 18:10:20
Ed 02 Do you think thstbthey xoikd not gel together?

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to happen.}

3.) 30 Apr 2020 19:20:35
Salford, it's probably more to do with them being similar players who play a similar role within their teams.

Although I think Havertz has shown he can play wide right and even as a CF, positions I don't think are suited to Bruno. Both are best centrally as the club's primary creative option in the final third.

I doubt Havertz will join to sit on the bench. Although it is possible to get two creative midfielders to play together as seen with KDB and Silva at City, you tend to need them to prefer playing on different halve of the pitch. Both Bruno and Havertz play best in the right hand half space.

Although it won't happen Maddison would work better, of Grealish.

But I don't see us lining up with two creative midfielders very often next season unless Pogba stays and gets his head down. Either way no need for Havertz.

4.) 30 Apr 2020 19:21:08
Herein lies the problem. City would have three players capable of rotating that position, yet because Utd have just one, noone else is of interest :D.

5.) 01 May 2020 19:19:42
Agree Spenno. Seems to me that top top players should be able to adapt and play together even if that means one of them has ro play in not necessarily his best position.

I still fear for us creativity wise if Fernandez is injured. I am unsure if Grealish is capable of dominatinf games. That brings me to anotjer point. If someone eg Bayern gets Sane for say £70m and we have to pay anywhere near that figure for Grealish I know whonis gettimg tje bettwr deal and its not Utd. Yes i do know its all paper talk at the moment

Finally does anybody have anybtjoughrs about whetjwr thwy can see Angel Gomez making a breakthrough into the first team anytime soon once we start football again?

Everyone have a safe weekend.

6.) 01 May 2020 19:35:35
Sorry about the missspellings but pop ups block what I am righting.



31 Jul 2019 17:15:47
Hi eds Is there any truth in the rumours we are looking at umtiti?

{Ed002's Note - I am nt aware of any approach by Manchester United.}

1.) 31 Jul 2019 18:30:04
Thanks Ed, if you don't mind me asking do you think he is the type of player we should be looking to sign?

{Ed002's Note - No.}



03 Jun 2019 21:46:52
Eds is there any truth we are looking at the lille keeper Mike Maignan as a possible de gea replacement? Also what do you think the likelyhood de Gea will leave this summer?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Manchester United asked for a price knowning that Lille have identified a replacement already - he is one of a number of players they have done this with. (2) He wants out and I expect the club have decided not to block it.}

1.) 04 Jun 2019 09:17:51
Hi Ed002.
In the earlier update you had said that United had looked into Ahmadou Dia who is one for the future.
So if De Gea is allowed to leave this summer, do you expect United to promote Romero/ Grant/ Henderson as first choice
Or, are they looking for a keeper from top European sides?

{Ed002's Note - I have just answered that MU are looking at GKs.}

2.) 04 Jun 2019 13:40:04
Good decision by the player for not blocking someone that wants out of the club and he has given quite a lot to the club.

3.) 04 Jun 2019 10:50:05
Thanks a lot Ed much appreciated.

4.) 04 Jun 2019 12:01:50
Is the interest in Maddison genuine Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There is plenty of interest from clubs but I doubt Leicester will sell at anything less than a ridiculous fee.}

5.) 04 Jun 2019 10:15:01
Sorry Ed. I thought you would namelist more GK targets.

Looks like this will be one of United's biggest ever rebuild in recent history.
Integrating the new players will be key aspect next season.

{Ed002's Note - Jasper Cillessen (G)
Ahmadou Dia (G) one for the future - there has been a meeting but nothing came of it
Berke Ozer (G) one for the future
Kaylor Navas (G) now available but heading elsewhere
Andre Onana (G) will challenge Barcelona for a deal
Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) €75M asking price is seen as excessive

6.) 04 Jun 2019 18:04:14
Thanks Ed :)
Donnarumma would be my personal choice out of the above list.
But it will be a huge task replacing someone of the caliber of De Gea.

{Ed002's Note - He nearly moved to England last year but it was called off - I am not sure that a loss risky option might not be best. Or MU may opt to block de Gea leaving and wait until next year.}

7.) 04 Jun 2019 21:34:34
Donnarumma isn’t the keeper we need at all, not unless OLG wants a poor shot stopped who is decent with distribution. Check out my recent post re: GKs United should consider if De Gea goes, there are far better options.

8.) 04 Jun 2019 19:35:02
Interesting to read that we will challenge to sign Onana if I’ve read that right.

{Ed002's Note - I think he would be the pick.}

9.) 05 Jun 2019 04:34:39
I believe at just 20, Donnarumma has massive scope for improvement
and at 6 foot 5, he will be well suited to the physical demands of English football.

Eds I see nicky butt has been appointed Head of first team development. Does this mean the club are making changes to the structure of the management? Like for instance bringing in a director of football or something similar imminently? And if so do you think it will be an ex player or somebody close to the club?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what they are up to I am afraid.}

1.) 22 Jul 2019 19:18:23
No worries. Thanks anyway.

2.) 22 Jul 2019 20:50:01
He’s there to help youngsters transition into the first team. He’s done a good job imo and it looks a sensible move.

I hate to go against the grain on here but I like the type of players we are targeting and it looks like sensible moves are being made, at least from the outside looking in.

We will bring in at least two more players, ship out a few closer to deadline day and I think we will start the season with a good, young squad.

3.) 22 Jul 2019 21:49:27
Even when we look like we are changing philosophy and going against what we have done for the past 6 years we still get portrayed as not having any direction

Fingers crossed wazza and its Maguire and bruno.

4.) 22 Jul 2019 21:51:55
im with you wazza.

5.) 22 Jul 2019 21:59:27
Timming of appointment suggests it's done to deflect our minds from a bad transfer window .

6.) 22 Jul 2019 22:12:08
Neil I’m not sure if you are fishing but the casual fan will likely not be aware of this promotion, if it is that. I very much doubt the club are playing mind games by changing Nicky Butt’s job title.

7.) 22 Jul 2019 22:55:26
I am lost, Head of First team development, no idea why that is seen as a key role. Youth transition to the first team has been happening for circa 70 years, so why does it now need a specialist position. It sounds like a specialist position rather than what is actually needed, a DOF to restructure the club.

8.) 23 Jul 2019 05:40:24
Agree Wazza, the players we are linked to seems like we have a strategy.
Ed002 also said previously that the club will look to improve.
Maybe something positive is happening behind the scenes?



18 Jul 2019 18:58:16
Not a rumour but has the unlike button been removed?

{Ed002's Note - Only for posters who abused it.}

1.) 18 Jul 2019 21:09:42
erm so some can see it and some cant?

2.) 18 Jul 2019 21:39:52
So what have I done to have it removed?
Can't think of anything.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 22:25:04
But Ed, I also don't think I abused the dis/ unlike button but erm, I may have been trigger-happy 🙌🏽🤣.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 22:28:09
I think Ed002 might have caught a few fish there. 😅.

5.) 18 Jul 2019 23:38:12
😂 wow some people will believe anything.

6.) 18 Jul 2019 23:50:35
I've unliked all the above comments. 👎.

{Ed033's Note - Ah, we've caught the unliker. Book 'em, Danno! :)

7.) 19 Jul 2019 07:16:48
Haha hook and line 🐟.



28 Mar 2019 10:11:33
I'm glad we've announced ole now. Perfect timing, give us another push in the months when we generally find form. I've a feeling a few new contract on the way for DDG and rashford, the only way is up. #GGMU #Olesatthewheel.



27 Feb 2019 17:36:41
I say we start chong and gomes tonight along with sanchez in a front 3. Give these 2 a chance and we could be very pleasantly surprised at what they can offer. I'd say that potentially they can be the replacements for sanchez and lukaku in the summer. Ole will get the job, and we have a manager that will give them their chance and don't have to spend fortunes on attacking players so we have the money to strengthen the defence properly.



08 Feb 2019 21:04:21
Hi eds do any of you have any inside info into the next manager? I personally think if ole gets us into 3rd he deserves the job, but apart from him and pochettino is there any other front runners?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing at this time.}

1.) 08 Feb 2019 21:17:21
Thabks for the quick reply ed002.

Saint maximin from Newcastle looks a decent player, I wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him.

I've a question for all of you that want us to sign regulion, how many of you actually wanted us to sign him prior to the el latter stages? How much have you actually seen him play? I've seen him a few times this season and yeah he looks good going forward, but I don't think he's as good as people are making him out to be. Real wouldn't be open to selling him otherwise. I think a fit Shaw is better than him. Shaw and rashford seem decent when played together and we look a better side, Shaw opens up space for rashford and brings the width when rashford cuts in most of the time.

I'm with trololo on this one, when any other club expect us to pay the asking price why shouldn't we expect the same in return. Smalling had a decent season last year and if roma want him so bad they would pay it.

A loan could work, permanent could backfire. If we have a player with a point to prove and the right attitude it would work, but somebody just picking up a high wage and no effort then it's Sanchez mark 2. I think these few years hardly playing can work for him long term, less wear and tear on his body and he should be pretty fresh.

The Youth signings have been great this year from what I have seen of them. They all seem held in high regard aswell. The future looks bright, we have some decent young players already. Hannibal looks like the cream of the crop, I've been impressed with him along with mengi and pugimal. Hope a couple If not all of them get some game time this season.

Nobby this club is built on our history of youth players. This is what separates us from the rest. Mengi looks good and I'd rather him than many of the other cbs were linked with, just because he's not costing 60 million doesnt
mean people should disregard him so soon.

Salford would you rather arsenal's squad than our? I'd argue we are stronger than them and in a better position to challenge for the title.

Arsenal haven't won a league title in a long time, it been 16 years since they won the league and they won't win one anytime soon. Their structure is hardly great either. I agree with Chelsea, City and Liverpool recently. I believe we are taking steps in the right direction and we are a lot closer than people think. But the proof will be in how this season goes, hopefully we all get behind ole and the team and we have a good season.

He looked decent when he came on and his goal was well taken, I think this loan move is going to be great for him.

Agree with whiskey, I like gomes but can't see him making it's anytime soon, should have stayed and gone on loan imo, but he made his decision and wish him the best, but have a feeling he will drift off the radar at lille. I have faith in chong I think he will end up having a chance with us and taking it, his loan will make him a much better player and give him some confidence which he needed.
