I heard from a mate who's an Everton season ticket holder that they are willing to let calvert-lewin leave this summer. Have any of the eds heard that we have shown any interest in him? I think he could be a good signing for us.

{Ed025's Note - hes going nowhere danny mate..


1.) 20 Jun 2021 13:59:47
Imagine he's desperate to cement his place in Liverpool legend Rafa Benitez's squad.

{Ed025's Note - now thats a different kettle of fish rosie, but i cant wait to see how that plays out mate..


2.) 20 Jun 2021 14:24:30
He's a good player and he's in the right place for his development.

He needs another season or too at Everton and who knows where they'll be if the keep hold of him.

{Ed025's Note - hes a good prospect utd road but still a bit green around the gills, he needs to brush up on his finishing but i do believe there is a good player in there, i think your right about him being at the right club mate...well for now..


3.) 20 Jun 2021 14:42:18
Needs to become more interested in contributing when the ball is played on the grass.

Amazing aerial ability though and has a fantastic leap.


4.) 20 Jun 2021 16:22:43
He's a good player no doubt, but I don't think he is ready for a move to a team expected to challenge for honours. I also don't think his style of play suits how we set up.

We like our strikers to be able to rotate with the wide players, and be able to play delicate link up play.

It doesn't always work but you can see the intention.

DCL plays more like a throwback CF. He backs into players and uses hi strength to hold the ball up. He isn't as mobile, but he does work hard. He'd be a useful plan B type option. But he lacks the pace, mobility and ability to pull wide that United like in their forward players.

Personally I think Ollie Watkins would be a much better fit for how United try and play.


5.) 20 Jun 2021 17:20:07
Well no need for him to come to United then. because we definitely ain't challenging for any honours with this current setup.


6.) 20 Jun 2021 20:29:58
No, and no thanks. besides, the lazy journalists already have him teaming up with Carlo at Real :D.


7.) 20 Jun 2021 20:31:55
£85 million on Sancho
£25 million on Trippier
£50 million on Varane

With no departures looking likely.
After 18 months of lockdown.
It doesn't add up im afraid.


8.) 20 Jun 2021 22:26:48
£85 MILLION
+
£25 MILLION
+
£50 MILLION
=
£160 MILLION

IT DOES ADD UP.


9.) 21 Jun 2021 16:41:32
So it does - i couldn't get it - not enough fingers 🙄.


 

 

31 Aug 2020 09:39:52
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.}

One thing that has become apparent over the past few years is that Manchester United fans aren't united, I get we won't all agree on a player, a manager or a performance. But one thing we have always normally have agreed on is our love for the club and back them until the death. Now days all we seem to do is argue, disagree and try and score points on one another when 'somebody is right and another is wrong'. We need to unite ourselves again.


1.) 28 May 2021 22:31:15
You mean a bit like Loserfool for 30 years? I get you danny.


2.) 28 May 2021 23:38:48
The season is over.
We will start next season with the same owners. The same manager. Hopefully a few new players and go again.
Everybody starts on zero points again and last season counts for nothing. We have nothing to defend and everything to gain. A cl to look forward to crowds will be back so we will hopefully see more intense and competitive games.


3.) 29 May 2021 08:26:00
couldnt agree more @danny

well put @Ken.


4.) 29 May 2021 08:35:47
Ken - the first paragraph i find sadly true, but I have a plan.
We are continually linked with big names and the next best things all over the globe: as a parting shot ed woodward should be made aware that very often these players clubs have well documented replacements in mind: pen and paper ready, hijack the replacements and save millions- problem solved!
I wish it could be that simple, but it isn't as laughable as it seems.
The majority of supporters will no doubt roll up their sleeves and cheerthe team on until such a time (xmas) when they'll roll their eyes and slag them off.


5.) 29 May 2021 13:07:14
Great idea funky🤣🤣.


 

 

12 Jan 2021 22:51:04
Good win against a difficult side. Sends us top in January for the 1st time since fergie. Credit to ole and the boys for turning the season around. Surely even the biggest critics can see the progress and maybe lay off ole a bit. Tough game coming up Sunday, but have faith. GGMU.


 

 

25 Dec 2020 00:01:58
I hope you all have a great Christmas with your loved ones, I know it won't be the normal with the world as it is at the minute, but just embrace it. Life could be worse you could be an arsenal fan 😉😂.

{Ed047's Note - hey it’s supposed to be the season of goodwill! 🤣🤣

Have a great one Danny!


 

 

15 Oct 2020 13:24:29
Is anyone going to pay to watch us play this weekend? £15 seems quite steep for a single game.


1.) 15 Oct 2020 13:33:30
a lot of the newcastle fans have said they are going to give the fee to food banks. good on them.


2.) 15 Oct 2020 13:49:15
Do you think that's because Newcastle fans don't think we're worth watching 😂.


3.) 15 Oct 2020 13:57:12
I paid to watch the whole season, but that's my part of the world.


4.) 15 Oct 2020 14:07:30
I think this will just push more people to streaming.


5.) 15 Oct 2020 15:30:25
It is very expensive. I understand that football clubs are losing money, but surely this highlights the real issue. overpaid football players. Make them take a paycut so we can watch it all for free.


6.) 15 Oct 2020 16:52:32
I'll be watching.


7.) 15 Oct 2020 17:55:49
Do you get a free stream if you have a season ticket?


8.) 15 Oct 2020 19:31:50
probably saving there money for decent opposition shappy.


9.) 15 Oct 2020 19:51:37
I'm torn between wanting to support my team but not wanting to continue to fill the owners pockets.


10.) 15 Oct 2020 20:23:31
I’ll be paying, streaming not for me, hate the delay and messing about, on my tv in HD will do me just fine.


11.) 15 Oct 2020 20:59:21
I will be watching but i am poor so will be exploring other avenues to view the game.


12.) 15 Oct 2020 21:41:07
I think it's a rip off and I'm torn. I do want to watch the game but 15 quid per game on top of the 50 odd quid I pay for sky and bt is a joke. If we pay it to watch it's only a matter of time before all our games are ppv, so kind of think fans should boycott it and take a stand and say no. I get some don't mind paying it because 15 quid isn't a lot to them. But say we play 6 games a month, 15 quid a pop that's £90 a month. That's a lot of money.


13.) 15 Oct 2020 22:10:48
I agree with Danny and wouldn't go anywhere near paying for this. Match will be available on hesgoal.com for those that wish to watch the match.


14.) 15 Oct 2020 22:49:14
Danny,

That isn’t on the cards though, there are games on tv this weekend, our game wouldn’t be normally so it’s an added bonus for me that we can pay and watch it. Annoying that it’s £15 but doesn’t bother me too much, saving a lot on my season ticket as it is. Maybe I’m the problem.


15.) 15 Oct 2020 22:51:23
Absolute farce the £15 charge. The subscription for sports channels is already so high. At least provide season ticket holders with some sort of way to the matches for free. I hope the club looks to partly reimburse season ticket holders also. I can afford to pay it no problem but won’t be. I’ve heard Navscore is a good app. If you can mirror your device to your tv then even better guys. I can’t imagine many people paying for the matches. I wonder if they will release stats on how many people order this weekend. Maybe better off going to a pub if you can also.


16.) 15 Oct 2020 23:04:30
No won’t be putting any more cash into this.


17.) 15 Oct 2020 23:05:43
I think the fee is ott. It can be seen as opportunistic or it can be seen as an optional extra.
Personally i don't like the timing but it won't stop me watching.


18.) 16 Oct 2020 07:35:43
Simple decision in my household, the match clashes with the beginning of Strictly, not a chance my wife will be letting me anywhere near the TV.


19.) 16 Oct 2020 12:59:31
Do you have to subscribe to sky as well or can you just pay the fifteen quid?


20.) 16 Oct 2020 18:34:06
Manc man I'm sure there are ways without a subscription, its money and that's all sky and bt care about, they will make sure you can so they profit. Maybe now tv or one of their apps.


21.) 16 Oct 2020 19:24:00
Danny. Their business like lots of others is there to maximise profits.
You talk like that's evil.


22.) 17 Oct 2020 13:30:33
It's a business, and I've no issue with that. But consumers will dictate how successful that business is. If everyone pays for it, they'll see a market for it further down the line. If you don't pay, they might reconsider the next time. I'm working so it's irrelevant to me. Really don't know if I'd pay it or not.


23.) 17 Oct 2020 14:01:55
GDS2. The matches selected to be PPV will be the ones that decision makers think will bring in the most revenue. Given the size of our fan base I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see our games selected for PPV more often than others’.

Part of me wonders whether the PPV system might be better in the long run though. While I was still in the UK I was spending £50+ a month on television packages. I watched other stuff just because I was paying for it, but the main reason that I paid the money was for the 2 or 3 United games a month - and I’d occasionally have to miss one of those because of prior engagements or work. Had I been watching on PPV at £15 I’d likely have spent far less. If the price dropped to £7.50-£10 a match (which it may well do if the initial uptake is poor), I think it’d be a very viable alternative to traditional subscription models moving forwards. Whether Sky would let it happen is another story though.


 

 

22 Jul 2019 19:10:04
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?

Donny just need games to show his worth. I felt a little embarrassed for him last year because a little run out with 5 minutes to go or the odd cup game with a second team isn't his level and he did show little signs . Give him decent playing time and the confidence and quality will shine through. Class is permanent and all that as they say.

Donny is Pogbas replacement. Imo it will be money well spent, he will come good. I like neves and spending 40 million would be a good bit of business.

Hendo for me all day long. If we lose him we will be searching for a new number 1 in a year or 2 and will struggle to find a keeper as good as him because if he's playing every week he's going to get better.

It's what us british are know best for we like to haggle. We will pay what they want but why not try and save a few quid in the meantime. If I'm being honest I can't see many teams bidding, I personally think he's a bit over rated and should go for raphina who would be a better option and value for money. He's a good player but the cost involved are massive. We should be looking at the guy they will replace him with as dvd seem to do well with buying and selling.

I hope he stays for next season just for him on a personal level. Imagine playing for united and never getting to celebrate a goal at the Stretford end with the fans.

433 is the best formation for us. If we have a solid back line it will work. I disagree with you statement about awb, I actually think his defending would be best suited to the last line of defence, he is one of the best tackelers in the league. If I could pick one player from our team to tackle somebody it would be him.

I hope we go with this formation because it would work a lot better than the current 6 4 formation we seem to play. It would give us some entertainment and we would play like a United side. Only time will tell what happens but I'd prefer we went this direction.
