with Mata, Carrick, Herrera, Zlatan, Shaw and Felliani out of contract this summer who will be retained and who will leave I would be sad to see Mata leave but think all six could be replaced. If we don't win the league which in all honesty looks very very hard we probably will need 4/ 5 new players which in hindsight should of happened this summer.

red gate

{Ed002's Note - There is a good chance Fellaini will go in January. Mata will get a direct approach from Real Madrid in January.}

1.) 06 Nov 2017 20:58:45
Could people see Mata in the Madrid team.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 22:15:52
Am I right in saying that there is a option for a 1 year extension in Matas contract? If so does this mean United can extend it themselves or does the player also have to agree to it. Can anyone clear that up? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I have not seen his contract.}

3.) 06 Nov 2017 22:23:17
Mata to Madrid 🤔.

Be very disappointed to see him leave.

4.) 07 Nov 2017 00:36:18
Shame because mata and fellaini are 2 i'd want to keep.

5.) 07 Nov 2017 02:57:24
I'd keep Fellaini the rest could go from my perspective. Mata to Madrid B?

I like Herrera but he is a jack of all trades and we need masters.

6.) 06 Nov 2017 23:27:12
Sorry Ed 02 kind of stupid question back there. Non the less though in the case of any player if there's an option to add a further year in their contract is it the club or player who has the final say? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It depends on the contract but unilateral clauses are always in favour of the club with the player having signed the original contract containing that clause and details of how it is invoked and details of the financial package. It typically requires the provision of a registered letter by a certain date but does not stop the player talking to clubs registered with a different FA from January. The majority of clubs will always talk with the player first, a few perhaps not, and there have been some which have ended up in a legal battle - with one significant case in 2005/06 which ended with the Dispute Resolution Chamber making the decision on behalf of CAS after the matter was referred by FIFA.}

7.) 07 Nov 2017 08:38:38
Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Dan.}

8.) 07 Nov 2017 15:28:58
As cover perhaps Jred, I suspect there is an option to extend and despite what Jose would say in the media about wanting Mata to stay, I think he'd be open to selling if he was replaced by Perisic or someone similar.

9.) 08 Nov 2017 08:26:48
Mata to Madrid in this mornings papers, Ed0002 ahead of the game as ever.

10.) 08 Nov 2017 12:07:36
AS much as I like all the players in this list, I’m not concerned by any of them moving on.

11.) 08 Nov 2017 18:23:23
Well first of all, we can’t let them all leave in the summer. Way too big of a blood loss for the squad, no matter how high you rate each one of them. I’d like to see Herrera retained and more involved again.
I guess the club has no say in Fellaini anymore, Zlatan, Carrick and Shaw need to go because of age or because it’s just not happening in Shaw’s case.
I like Mata a lot, so would plead to keep the two Spaniards and sign three starters for the wingback positions and right side.
And then leave room in the squad for highly rated youths to get some minutes.

12.) 12 Nov 2017 21:15:45
I think Mata would do well at Madrid. Slower pace of the games, surrounded by some top players, would play to his strengths.



02 Nov 2017 17:53:52
do any of the Eds have any news on us being in for Leon goretzka a possible free transfer, could replace Felliani if he goes.

red gate

{Ed002's Note - I answered this before, there is some interest but Barcelona and Juventus are more likely destinations.}

1.) 02 Nov 2017 18:30:46
sorry Ed i should of used the search engine, if we were to sign Sanchez and Goretzka on free transfers we would still have a nice pot left for further reinforcements, Jose does know how to box clever we could see a few free transfers this summer.

{Ed002's Note - I would not worry about the money but there are specific positions the club are looking at addressing. PSG will look to Sanchez.}

question for the Eds, with Rupert Murdoch now selling up some of his assists could he now buy Manchester United without breaking any monopoly rules he has always wanted the club and does anyone know if he is a red?

red gate

{Ed002's Note - No. Why would he want to do that?}

1.) 15 Dec 2017 10:02:15
Jesus Christ, have you ever heard the expression, better the devil you know? Trust me on this Murdoch is not a devil you want to be getting into bed with.

2.) 15 Dec 2017 12:29:14
Isn't he a member of the elite lizard race, maybe he could pull a few string for us? Grease a few scales?



01 Dec 2017 21:14:24
Manchester evening post reporting Jose has sent scouts to find an attacking creator the ("final missing piece " ) , I believe we do need a playmaker 10 there are good options out there, i would like Ferkir from Lyon he would be perfect for this team imo.

red gate

1.) 01 Dec 2017 22:16:42
Sounds like a novel or something, tis Sherlock Holmes or someone he should be sending.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 10:54:31
Fekir is a great option, but I prefer Thomas Lemar. Mkhitaryan still seems to be struggling with consistency, which at his age means he is unlikely to fully adapt and be a constant threat in the EPL. It's a real shame as he is an excellent player when on form. However, if we are to improve we need players who are consistently excellent, rather than great in spells. Mata unfortunately also falls into that category, although he is more consistent than Mkhitaryan Jose doesn't seem to fully trust him.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over Fekir or Lemar.}

3.) 02 Dec 2017 11:31:01
That's a shame, both are excellent players. If you don't mind me asking Ed002, where is our interest currently in creative players?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean by "creative players". Are these players who have hobbies such as painting, quilt making and piecing together stained glass windows? You would do better by asking by position Shappy.}

4.) 02 Dec 2017 12:04:38
Ed002 🤣🤣👍.
Am sure you know what Shappy meant 👍. Which is why I love this site and the quick witty Eds and their hard working attitude. Not to be found anywhere else in this world 🤣🤣🤣.

{Ed002's Note - The trouble is I really don't know - are these wingers who can be creative, or central midfield players etc.. It is far easier for me if you give me a position or craft that we are looking for.}

5.) 02 Dec 2017 13:16:57
I might as well try😂 have we got any realistic targets in mind for that attacking midfield role no10 type player for January.
Ed002 can i ask what your thoughts are on the miki situation ed. He seems to have lost form and fallen out of favour completely. Is there any interest from elsewhere in him?

{Ed002's Note - As I said in the Sharkopod, Mesut Oezil may be one. But Oezil may need to think twice about any offer from Manchester United although it is not out of the question. Mata may also sign a new deal. Right now central midfield is the area the club has been looking.}

6.) 02 Dec 2017 15:48:24
Which Central Midfielders are we looking at Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I explained it all in the Sharkopod. Try there.}

7.) 02 Dec 2017 16:19:06
Thanks ed002.



20 May 2017 17:48:28
sat watching Roma and hoping Nianggolon comes on he is a player I hope Jose is considering do the eds no if there is any interest in him from us if not there should be he is as good as Keane in his prime for me would love a summer of him Laporte, Barkley and Aubameyang.

red gate

1.) 20 May 2017 22:41:39
As good as Keane in his prime? You must be joking. Nowhere near as good. And Ross Barkley? So overrated it's untrue. Where would he play? He's poor for me.

2.) 20 May 2017 23:05:46
ok maybe as good as Keane is a bit much but he is for me the best all action midfielder in Europe at the moment watched Roma all season and he is amazing at everything didn't play today but if you watch his performances he is top top notch I also think Barkley could be very good for us he has bags of ability and looks a Jose type player big strong good engine tackles scores creates better than Fellaini and the Rooney of today in my opinion.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe as good as Keane.... Roy Keane?? Be careful here - very careful......

3.) 20 May 2017 23:25:12
ed007 I said maybe as good was a bit much after maybe bigging him up to much. Just for the record Keane is my favourite player of all time before him Robson was I like Nianggolon because he gives 100% he would give us the most complete battling midfielder in europe today bar none he that good, if you have watched Roma this season he has really played exceptional hope Jose has been paying attention. 28 is prime for his postion and although he parties and smokes he super fit trains himself Zidan liked to drink and smoke even Messi likes a smoke so I hope we sign him and the Reds have another player in the mould of Keane or Robson.

{Ed007's Note - People can argue with me about the existence of God and His son Jesus but NOBODY can argue with me about the existence of Roy Maurice Keane, by far THE greatest man that has walked on this earth outside the Bible. While Zidane was smoking and drinking Roy Keane was bullying Hannibal Lecter for being a pussy at Cannibal Anonymous meetings!
Nianggolon is a good player but he's no Scott Brown or Stuart Armstrong.}

4.) 20 May 2017 23:30:41
lol only just seen the clip i live Gateshead northeast even Liam Neeson would give this place a wide birth.

Jimmy Nail - now there is a true legend!

My grandparents used to live up North, and for some reason kept getting Jimmy Nail's post. True story.

Had to keep putting it back in the postbox with "RETURN TO SPENDER" written on it.

Oh betty. Hang your head in shame hahaha


8.) 20 May 2017 23:57:41
LOL u need to get on the site more.

{Ed007's Note - It's all far too serious on here for that mate.}

9.) 21 May 2017 01:05:24
Mr bond i agree with your views on Roy Keane. as they say here in cork .
He was a rare one.

{Ed007's Note - Unique.}

10.) 21 May 2017 02:32:31
Now this is classic Bond! Hahaha.

{Ed007's Note - :-D

11.) 21 May 2017 03:02:51
Ed 007 spot on. No one replaces Keano!

{Ed007's Note - And no one ever will.}



18 May 2017 18:34:58
would Aymeric laporte be a cb under consideration from Jose or do you think Rojo is the long term left sided cb solution.

red gate

{Ed002's Note - MU has shown no interest in Aymeric Laporte but Mourinho was keen when he was at Chelsea.}

1.) 18 May 2017 20:52:53
He would jump at the chance of playing with his best bud Pogba at club level I would think 😆😆.



21 Aug 2016 13:39:21
On reflection of this weekends game i came to a conclusion that the new referring code on shirt pulling and jostling in the box may well benifit us the most we have the tallest strongest team so the advantage of this should play into our hands and will ultimately lead to more penalties though out the league.

red gate

1.) 21 Aug 2016 13:46:33
it could also hurt us badly if smalling is up to his usual shirt swapping antics.

2.) 21 Aug 2016 14:01:10
We also have Smalling, it won't help him out!

3.) 21 Aug 2016 14:38:04
Smalliing is 3rd choice now. So he better play and not pull.

it's clear we need a number 10 lingard has done well but Miki has not lived up to expectations Mata is ok there but we need a real top quality player in that position I like The Fekir from Lyon he is the wild card who Jose will look to bring in.

I think we will sign at least 1 cm this window or summer probs maybe Savic as he ticks Joses idear of a modern cm think Savic would be top notch in our team I also have a gut feeling Jose will try to sign the Fekir fron Lyon but could be lots of competition for him, he imo is a outstanding number 10 and could be better than Greizmann and Dybola for us, tackles passing positional play scores creates sets tempo everything a 10 of world class ability has. We need a 10 more than any position unless we get Matic a new partner and push Pogba up which I hope does not happen Pogba best were he is and Fekir would better with Pogba Matic feeding him.

Martial is a true world class player in the making I think we will see a different player to last season and looks a snip at the price compared to players of his quilitys in this inflated market I think a lot will be left with humble pie by him this season, loaning him out is not in Joses plans neither is selling him he had already stated he has a big part to play this season.

Bale would be fantastic for us players do recover from long injurys time and time again medical improvements over the last few decades has progressed and I have no doubt he would be the best player in the league but why would real sell he could fix them? and I doubt he would come to us he has rejected us twice but never say never.

clearly a very good defender but I think this will have a chain reaction seeing Cortinho go Barcelona which ultimately will weaken pool.

City had a much better team when Jose and Pep were Put in place as managers. I beleive Jose is going in the right direction he still needs 2 more players maybe as mych as 4 once players leave this summer but we are on the right path, form is bad at minute not surprised how we have under performed the city game was a confidence strainer we need to get the bit between our teeth and sign a 10 for January, I want the Fekir from Lyon and think we will be in the market for him or similar.

great post man, Pogba is one exceptional player and were lucky to have him, I think why we miss him when he's injured or suspended is we don't have a real number 10 if we had Greizmann or Fekir or Dybola we would cope better when Paul's absent and better full stop Pogba and any of those 3 would be great, we already have a really really good team we could do with a winger as well. but think for now a great number 10 is the missing piece, we had Rooney not long ago and we need now another player like Wayne at his peak we have the goalkeeper we have the defenders we have Pogba and Matic Rashford Martial Zlatan Lukaku and a strong prem squad, we miss a world class 10 maybe we need to promote Angel Gomes or spend big to get some one in but unless this is addressed then we better pray Pogba don't get injured or suspended we are going to be top 4 no matter even if Paul was out rest of season were to good, but to good don't match $hity and we would not be contending for the champions league but I expect Jose to already have his choice in mind probably Greizmann I hope Fekir or Dybola or someone else but they have to be a out right beast in the position.
