So martial wants to leave, does anyone know who's interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - His agent is offering him around.}



20 Aug 2021 09:31:42
Hearing that James garner has agreed a new deal and will be heading back to Nottingham forest on loan for the season. Glad we got him signed up again, he's definitely one that should make it into the 1st team in the next few years.

1.) 21 Aug 2021 05:19:56
dannyc, good for the lad.

He definitely needs more game time and needs to physically bulk up slightly to make it in the PL.

We will know if he is ready for the first team in a couple of years time provided there is space in our already congested midfield.



20 Jun 2021 11:09:06
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.

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.

Eds I'm hearing that if villa don't get cantwell then they are going to try and sign lingard, I know a guy who's a big villa fan and he said that they have enquired in the talks to sign tuanzebe on loan. is there any truth in it?

{Ed002's Note - Tuanzebe might be an option way down the list but I suspect he is teasing you about all of this.}

1.) 04 Aug 2021 21:06:35
Cantwell would be an excellent signing for them, that said I think it might be a tough one to pull off. Norwich have already lost Buendia to Villa this summer, they won't want to lose Cantwell as well.

I think Lingard would be an excellent signing for Villa.



28 May 2021 21:49:35
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 for those that wish to watch the match.

14.) 15 Oct 2020 22:49:14

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.

Is there a chance he could come to us ed? Just him being a London boy and Chelsea fan, Mount is his best mate and Chelsea like him, i thought he was going to be their kante replacement.

Pellestri and amad are clearly for a couple of years time. both would have been out on loan but amad got injured. I'd be interested to see if we send pellestri somewhere else in January because he's not getting much game time this season and he seems a bit behind . i have a feeling donny will go to Newcastle on loan this month they need to sign decent players and he could help dig them out if the hole their in.

A couple of training sessions with Ralf and he's either been told he's surplus to requirements or he knows he can't hack it. I'm glad tbh he's been sub par for a good few seasons now.

I second that Ken. I like ole but he took us as far as he could. i'd have reversed the order tho.

The sooner pogba and his agent are out of the club the better. I just hope we never sign another raiola player again. It's like he's got a vendetta against us. Something just makes me think pogba will agree a new massive deal with us because nobody else will match the wage offer, and not that he wants to be here.

It's a classic case of play to the whistle. No foul so why should the game be stopped. If we had scored that goal we would have had no complaints.

Brendan I was one of the keep ole in brigade, I've got a lot of mates as united fans and they were all ole out and I always stood firm but after todays mess I think it's time he goes, i felt sorry for him in that end of game interview he looked like he was going to cry. but now is the time for him to leave, if he loves this club he should resign and hand over the reigns. i get being badly beaten by the scousers and City, but by Watford.
