Question for Ed002, if you're around.

You mentioned recently that we may look to a more experienced striker like Benzema this summer as a stop gap of sorts and I was wondering if Aguero may be an option in that regard.

Reports today are suggesting that he wants to stay in the Premier League and would consider offers from Chelsea or Spurs. I'm aware of the animosity between United and City, but surely we could afford to pay more than either club, can all buy guarantee Champion's League football next season and our Manchester location means that he wouldn't have to relocate his family half way across the country.

Have we or he expressed any interest in making a deal?


{Ed002's Note - No, Aguero won't be moving to Manchester United.}

1.) 07 Apr 2021 13:53:37
Shame, Aguero and DDG are good friends and he would have been a nice stop gap for us.

2.) 07 Apr 2021 15:27:51
There is a good chance neither of them will be in Manchester come the start of next season.

3.) 07 Apr 2021 20:07:32
I wouldn't be surprised to see both back in Spain next year. If DDG does want to go, let's hope we don't make the same mistake as we did with Romero.

4.) 07 Apr 2021 21:48:59
Romero is very handsomely paid to sit on a bench every week.

5.) 08 Apr 2021 15:35:08
Still got that sinking feeling that Giroud is a candidate in this area. A scorer of great goals, but not a great scorer of goals, and you get the feeling Tuchel will be bringing in his own CF this summer (maybe Aguerro) .

{Ed077's Note - Giroud isnt a bad player for me. He would be a decent back up option but I am starting to think we need a starting ST.

Aguero to Chelsea? Improbable IMO.}



23 Jan 2021 02:58:30
Hi Ed002. Any truth to the reports stating that we've offered to take Eriksen on loan until the end of the season?


{Ed002's Note - Christian Eriksen (AM) Borussia Dortmund may offer a solution at the right price. Again PSG will look to an exchange with Leandro Paredes but Inter will again ask for some cash on top of any transaction but may be willing to forego that to resolve the situation. He is being offered to other sides as well with his return to Spurs, possibly on loan initially, being considered if Dele Alli were to depart. Christian Eriksen is seen as an option to Grealish by OGS but it makes no sense until the Pogba and Van de Beek issues are resolved and no offer has been submitted. It is difficult to see how he would fit in to the team as it stands right now. Leicester want a loan but cannot afford the wages.

1.) 23 Jan 2021 12:55:05
Pleased to see we are still thinking of Grealish - I’d love to see us adopt the Bayern model of buying up the best domestic league talent.

I’m not sure where exactly he would fit into the side but a player of that quality has to play.

2.) 23 Jan 2021 13:52:05
Looking at the current form Grealish will easily replace Rashy on the left. He can also help to rotate Bruno at no 10.

3.) 23 Jan 2021 14:07:25
Form is temporary mate.

I could only see Grealish being played off the right or in a very attacking midfield 3 alongside Fernandes and a defensive midfielder. It would be exciting viewing, reminiscent to Xavi and Iniesta.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 15:02:55
Xavi and Iniesta had nothing to do with a very attacking midfielder. They were first of all good at possession, their job was to control games. Grealish and Fernandez as a pair are totally different kind of players.

5.) 23 Jan 2021 18:52:28
Wash your mouth out Fresh!

6.) 23 Jan 2021 19:34:55
Agree with Herrera. Grealish and Bruno I don’t think could play central together unless we had an absolute beast of a DM. And for me grealish despite rashford form right now does not displace him.

7.) 24 Jan 2021 11:18:38
You would need an avenger to play dm in a midfield with bruno and grealish to cover defensively.

8.) 24 Jan 2021 12:07:43
lol DSG. Thankfully we are interested in Rice, Zakaria and Saul.
Either one would be another step towards high quality.

9.) 24 Jan 2021 14:36:10
I'd go for ndidi if we are looking for a cdm. I love watching him play.



05 Oct 2020 11:04:57
Cavani and Telles have both signed. Expect a deal for Dembele to come through late in the day after Dortmund reject our €120m bid.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 11:08:32
Hope you’re wrong. What I want to know is why Sancho (who is apparently unwell) has been out of the Dortmund squad for over a week and is currently in the UK. What is going on. Is it really unrealistic to think our terrible PR team have kept this all under wraps and will in fact announce Sancho this afternoon?

2.) 05 Oct 2020 11:13:58
would be peak woodward to bid what dortmund wanted all window to then be told to do one.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 11:18:27
Find it funny how so many United fans seem to not want dembele and the majority of Barcelona fans don't want to lose him.

On his day one of the best players in the world and a fast attacking style like ours would be a better fit for him than Barcelona who's play doesn't require players to be quick

Ed's already said it's a possibility I hope we are trying to make this one happen.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 11:18:41
Sancho not happening, deal went dead a while back, probably even if we offer the full amount today. Sancho is at St George's Park at the moment getting a C.V. test. Dembele, Cavani and Tellas will be the only signings today.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 11:29:29
O. Dembele's camp have come out and said he won't leave Barcelona today. He wants to stay there and fight for his place.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 11:32:22
Dembele off according to multiple reports.

7.) 05 Oct 2020 11:34:04
Sancho broke quarantine earlier in the year to go to UK for a haircut apparently, left out of squad in last 3 games due to challenge and is at a party in UK. might not be the best role model if true.

8.) 05 Oct 2020 11:38:32
I suppose Dembele could keep Tuanzebe company throughout this season.

9.) 05 Oct 2020 12:08:25
Sancho is trying to push the move too, or at least he will if and when a bid goes it.
Points re: Dembele, on his day, yes he’s great but we can say the same about Pogba. We need consistency, no more gambles.



03 Oct 2020 09:11:41
Rumors going round that Leeds are considering a £25m bid for Dan James. I appreciate you don't want to go into specifics ED002, but is James a player that Leeds are interested in and if so, would they be looking to loan or buy? Furthermore, would United be open to selling?

If there's any truth to this I'd snap their hands off and put the money towards meeting Dortmund's asking price for Sancho.


{Ed002's Note - Leeds have added Jack Harrison as a LW and are looking to add a young RW in Kerk leaving them wanting a versatile left-sided player. They have two in mind in Cantwell and Sessegnon, but Sessegnon looks to be heading elsewhere. After failing to sign James last summer Leeds could look to him, perhaps on a loan deal initially, as an option to first choice LW.}

1.) 03 Oct 2020 12:18:59
He definitely needs a loan this season. Even if it’s to a championship club where he will play every week, but ideally to a lower level PL club. I feel sorry for the lad he’s having a tough time. Clearly has some talent but seems to be the type of player who needs a long run of games to develop. Might actually do him some good to be trained by a better coach as well.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 12:22:59
After a bright start things just haven’t worked out for him. Whilst I think that regular playing time would do him some good, I can’t ever see him developing into anything other than a squad player for us and even that might be beyond him. If selling him brings in the funds required to secure a deal for Sancho, I think the club would be foolish not to.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 14:01:00
I think sending to work with Bielsa would be an excellent idea. In fact sending our entire squad to work with him would not be a bad choice.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 20:35:59
😂 Maybe we can send our coaches.



28 Aug 2020 04:29:57
Hi Ed002. Any truth to the reports that we've made an approach for Sandro Tonali? Is he a player that the club have expressed an interest in signing in the past?

I haven't seen too much of him, but he looks like he has the potential to become one hell of a player if developed correctly.


{Ed002's Note - Tonali has no interest in moving to England - one club has tried vey hard to persuade him.}

1.) 28 Aug 2020 11:31:32
Ed002 has mentioned on numerous accounts that he wants to stay in Italy. Just another paper story or the board chasing another target that is never going to happen.

2.) 28 Aug 2020 17:02:12
Creaking little player all the same.
Inter have broad agreement in place according to reports and he does not want to leave Italy sadly.
A really top prospect imo.

3.) 28 Aug 2020 23:51:42
ken i thought he was a young player they only creek at our age.

4.) 29 Aug 2020 00:32:16
😂 oops.

18 Mar 2021 22:05:31
Fair play to Ole and the lads. It wasn't pretty, but it was enough to to get us over the line. A few thoughts.

I don't think that it's any coincidence that our drop in form coincided with Pogba's injury nor am I surprised to see him as the match winner upon his return. We've never really seen the best of him in a United shirt (at this point I don't think we ever will), but even when playing at a fraction of his potential he's a game changer.

The fullbacks disappointed me a little tonight, although each for different reasons. Shaw seemed to recognize that there was no point playing crosses in due to us having no one in the box, but AWB continued to put balls across regardless of this. To be fair, this is perhaps a step up from earlier in his United career where he tended to do very little with the ball, but also showed a lack of intelligence which worries me a bit. Shaw was solid enough defensively and offensively, but his positioning (keeping the line) was a little suspect at times.

Finally, I noticed quite a few times our forward players were trying to pressure their defenders, but near enough every time one of their midfielders just dropped back through the center to pick up the ball unchallenged with Fred nowhere to be seen. If we're going to press, everybody needs to join in otherwise we're just wasting valuable energy.

To be fair, when all's said and done, none of this really matters now. We got the result we needed, which is more than can be said of Rangers or Spurs; both of whom were up against far weaker opposition.

Looks like the dream of third place and three semi final defeats is very much still alive for Ole.


1.) 18 Mar 2021 22:16:10
Whats going on at spurs that's an awful result.

2.) 18 Mar 2021 22:26:41
Jose. that’s what’s going on 🤷‍♂️.

3.) 18 Mar 2021 22:44:37
Just seen lloris and jose interview that situation about to explode.
Kane on the move in the summer 😂 look good in united shirt.

4.) 18 Mar 2021 23:02:53
Harsh to criticise Fred tonight. I’m not his biggest fan but he had a good game.

Lindelof also excellent tonight.

5.) 18 Mar 2021 23:10:10
It's his last chance for a move imo jred. i'd take him in a heartbeat. Yes he will miss games but with greenwood there we could have 2 great cf options.
Harry would not be cheap. Have we got the money? and would levy be open to it? they may need to sell.
Great result tonight. Ole deserves the plaudits tonight I think he got every call spot on.
No need for more subs. We liked pretty comfortable fit the most part in the 2nd half. i'd call it a very good professional performance. Not a great 1st half but a very good second half. Once we go a goal up we are not easy to break down from open play and we sometimes can get a2nd on the counter. Very good away European tactics tonight. Good job by all. Pogbas creativity has been missed we agree on that and a big performance from lindelof who i thought was MOM.

6.) 19 Mar 2021 06:56:02
Wow ken are you ok?

A positive post🤭.

7.) 19 Mar 2021 08:07:45
Ken does come on here to say job well done after a good result/ performance. It’s just they are few and far between (performance wise anyway) .

I think it’s a fair post.

I’d add that Milan didn’t need to score, we needed to break them down and therefore it was dull just like every other time we need to score.

Only this time we got the goal, it wasn’t another 0-0, Milan needed to come on to us and that’s when we look good, when the opposition attacks. We then had the space to work in and we did it very well.

I have no doubt that if we’d scored first against Arsenal and Chelsea we would have gone on to win because our strength is using the space that the opposition leave in behind. We just need to get into the habit of scoring first against the big teams for results to improve.

8.) 19 Mar 2021 08:44:13
Ken yer that was my thoughts, very professional european performance.
Agree with the subs although I can't belive people are making such a big issue about making subs 🤷‍♂️.
Pogba has been a miss I hope he stays, he will be harder to replace than people think .

9.) 19 Mar 2021 10:04:41
jred i get the subs thing when we are losing ole is often slow to change but when your winning there is often no need to change anything and if you do it can upset the balance of the team and game.
Good 2nd half display and mostly good decisions from the manger last night.

{Ed077's Note - its a fine line I guess. You make a sub and go on to lose/draw a game its because of the sub and if you dont make a sub and lose/draw its because of not using the bench. Well if you end up winning then you took the right call I guess.}

10.) 19 Mar 2021 11:01:51
77 that about sums it up I personally think people are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

11.) 19 Mar 2021 14:50:22
in a nut shell 77.



07 Feb 2021 00:07:50
For as disappointing as tonight's result was, I thought it worth pointing out that we have only dropped 7 points from winning positions in the league this season and 3 of those came in a match where we got battered 6-1. I was actually surprised by that stat as it feels like we throw games away quite often, but yeah. Apparently nowhere near as often as I thought.

That said, our defending tonight was absolutely shocking and how we failed to see that one out when we had a free kick with about 20 seconds left on the clock I'll never know. For as amazing as he's been over the years, I think it's now time for De Gea to go (annoying that we treated Romero so badly as we could have done with keeping him as backup for Hendo) and we desperately need a new CB; if not two.

It sickens me a little that we spent £80m on HM and I fear that we'll be stuck with him now for quite some time, or, at the very least, until Ole gets sacked. He is one of the worst center backs I've seen playing regularly for our club in my lifetime and that he cost so much is just salt in the wound.

There are still plenty of positives (both our fullbacks assisted again today and Bruno and Cavani were excellent once again) and we'll improve further if Rashford, Martial and Greenwood can rediscover their form from the second half of last season, but I can see this season once again ending with 3rd place and three semi final defeats and fans left asking what if. The league is there for the taking, but I fear we lack the defensive stability to take it.


1.) 07 Feb 2021 01:53:39
I agree with most part mate but the league is not there for the taking. Its there for City if they won't loose tomorrow. I also don't agree entirely on De Gea, i think he is not so big problem and at the first goal hadnt many options. In any case i think he lacka confidence and makes second thoughts because of the defence.

2.) 07 Feb 2021 06:13:17
Totally agree and when u have a dodgy defender like maguire any top keeper will have second thoughts.

3.) 07 Feb 2021 06:51:31
How often has DDG made these mistakes. The 3rd goal he could have come out to try and stop CL. He just stood rooted to the spot.

4.) 07 Feb 2021 07:57:40
Herrera: He’s been making these mistakes for several years now and we’ve reached a point where he’s costing us more points than he saves. I’ve no doubts it’s a confidence issue as on his day he just might be the best keeper in the world, but how long does he need to get his confidence back? Ole has stuck by him a lot longer than most managers would have and he’s still underperforming.

As for the league, City will drop points between now and the end of the season; most likely in the next few games. They also still have to play us again before the seasons over and will have games coming thick and fast with European football starting up again soon (not to mention their two rearranged games) . Perhaps ‘was’ would have been more fitting than ‘is’ as I think recent results have forced us out of the running even though there’s still a slim chance. Had the Glazers brought in a new CB at the start of January when we were still right in it though (or better still, last summer), I would have fancied us to clinch top spot.

5.) 07 Feb 2021 13:05:53
De Gea is the victim of his own success. We were used for a number of years (5+) for him to make world class saves almost every match and little wrong. Mates that watch Bundesliga will say that Noier has made a hell a lot of mistakes and in the same time (2012-2018) our own De Gea made far far less. He was magnificent.

We used it and that guide in overaction. I keep hearing for two years that "De Gea make mistakes for several years". In fact De Gea was magnificent in 2018 conceded 17 less goals than the expected goals against suggested. Then the summer made some mistakes with his national team who plays the ball from the back. And then all our team played badly because of toxicity of Zose.

Then Ole came, played from the back and De Gea made mistakes (coincidence? ) and making things worst they bought for me the worst defender in our history. Jones was never too bad because he knew his limitations and didn't drive the ball in blind positions, Smalling was a far better defender and ofcourse a lot quicker too etc.

You can look at Allison's mistakes having in front of him Fabinho etc who play more like midfielders rather than defenders. And Allison is the best keeper the last two years, still he makes mistakes because of second thoughts.

Was redseven. We always knew that we are not the big boys and we depend in others slip ups. The time City found their form its themes.



03 Oct 2020 15:48:18
Another howler from Pickford. I wouldn't be a surprise to see Everton make a move for Romero over the next few days. He's a lot more reliable for sure!


1.) 03 Oct 2020 17:19:41
Pickford will still be number one for England aswell.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 17:41:14
If Henderson displaces DDG this season then I expect he'll be England No.1 by the time of the Euros.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 18:44:28
Pickford is just another Joe Hart for me. Excellent reflexes, but erratic and over confident. I haven't seen too much of Pope or Henderson but surely their clean-sheet stats warrant a proper look in at international level. I have no idea why Pickford is so well regarded by Southgate.



18 Sep 2020 06:10:56
I can't believe I'm asking this, but Suarez. Would you take him?

As a person, I'm not sure I could think much less of him, but as a player I still think he has a lot to offer.

He knows the league, he's a hell of a lot better than Ighalo (who Ole doesn't seem to rate at all), he could be available on a free transfer and perhaps best of all, it would wind the scousers up something rotten.

In the past we've done pretty well bringing older strikers in as they near the end of their careers (Larsson, Zlatan and Owen spring to mind) and it would fill a hole in our squad without blocking the long-term path of any of our developing strikers.


1.) 18 Sep 2020 06:33:31

2.) 18 Sep 2020 06:38:23
Never Ever Ever. No. Just No.
Ed001 who is a Liverpool supporter has said multiple times he wouldn't have him back and he nearly won the league for them.

Nit after what he done to evra.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 07:05:25
Although some would say we lack bite, Suarez and Hannibal in the same team is a bit too much.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 07:22:27
Nope, his knees have gone. Barcelona want shot of him as he in on high wages is injured a lot and even when fit is a shadow of the player he used to be.

Plus I'd never take him for what he did to Evra.

Reports coming out that Pogba has C.V. Fingers crossed he's okay.


1.) 27 Aug 2020 14:28:31
Going to be a common occurrence next season, think Chelsea have 7 players tested positive. How clubs and the league manage it will be interesting as we move forward. Hopefully all concerned are ok and they recover fully and quickly 👍.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 15:11:01
As far as I know Tim Chelsea have NO positive cases of CV. They have players on quarantine.

I’m sure all clubs will have positive tested players over the next few weeks.

I wish PP all the best.

{Ed001's Note - yeah they have 9 in quarantine but no positive tests so far.}

3.) 27 Aug 2020 15:17:02
It certainly seems as though many are letting their guard down during pre-season - unless the FA were fudging the results post lockdown (which seems unlikely) .

It will certainly be interesting to see how it’s handled once the new season is up and running. The SFA has to postpone some Celtic and Aberdeen games last week for lockdown breaches, but were a player to become infected during the season it could effectively force the whole squad into self-isolation leading to a whole spate of games being called off.

4.) 27 Aug 2020 15:31:32
Hopefully they will be in the 99% mild category of C.V.

5.) 27 Aug 2020 15:33:04
This won't be an infrequent occurance for months to come. Every human in this country will catch it, or get a vaccine - and there's no sign of one of those.

If I were EW I’d be going all out for Haaland. He hasn’t been able to get a proper run in the side due to injuries and suspension, but Cavani has shown us what a difference a proper CF can do in this side and for my money there isn’t a better one out there than Haaland right now.

Despite our poor relationship with his agent, I do wonder whether we’re well placed to strike a deal due to the Pogba situation. IIrc, were we to sell him this summer the fee would go to Pogba and his agent and so there’s very little incentive for us to do so unless we can strike some sort of deal. If that deal happened to be allowing them to keep all of the fee in exchange for getting a deal for Haaland over the line then I certainly wouldn’t say no. By all accounts, Dortmund need to sell, Haaland isn’t against a move to Manchester and his agent will likely push for whichever deal is going to line his pockets the most. It seems very doable, although will no doubt cost a lot.

I hate football agents and how greedy and influential they’ve become, but sometimes you have to deal with the devil in order to get things done. If we don’t, one of our rivals will.

With the birth of his child, I wouldn’t be surprised if Dave opts to go back to Spain this summer. I wish we’d done more to keep Romero happy as I’d be more than satisfied with him and Dean as our keepers. Swapping Dave for Oblak (either figuratively or literally) would leave us in the same mess we’re in now so I hope we steer clear unless the plan is to offload both Dave and Dean and replace them with a first and second choice keeper. That would be equally nonsensical though, imo.


{Ed077's Note - Spain doesnt have many options for DDG right now.}

Sadly, I think that the board views top four as a success; as evidenced by the huge disparity between our net spends when we do and don’t qualify for the Champions League. I’m sure the board would love for the team to win silverware, but they damn sure don’t want to spend the kind of money required for us to do so.

It strikes me very much as short term thinking, as while Manchester United may still be a big draw to potential sponsors right now, a few more trophyless seasons and continued boring performances will change all of that pretty quickly. The next generation of potential fans will have very little interest in supporting a side like ours and as they grow into their roles as consumers, the big sponsors will follow their lead.

Solid yet unspectacular performance all round. Granted, they were games we were expected to win, but the lads did more than was needed over the two legs and got us through to the semis. I suspect Roma will put up much more of a fight, but, touch wood, am glad it’s them and not Ajax.

I went with Haaland in the poll just because of Kane’s poor injury record, but I do share concerns that were we to sign the former (which seems incredibly unlikely anyway), he’d be on the move again in four years time. I do wonder whether that’s just where modern football is at these days though and would rather have a striker who is fit and banging in goals for four years and then sold on for a profile than one who could potentially spend half of his time injured and then leave for nothing when his contract expires.

Despite him not scoring as many goals this season, I’ve noticed a distinct improvement in his play off the ball and his decision making on it and I think a big part of that is down to him playing alongside Cavani. If he can keep his feet on the ground and continues to get opportunities to play alongside world class attacking players, I think we might have something truly special on our hands.

Shappy. I think it’s more a case that there aren’t many top CBs or RWs available. What’s more, we’re just as in need of a new CF and CDM, if not more.

When fit, Cavani has shown what a huge difference having a proper CF can make and we’ve set up with 2 CDMs in 90% of our games under Ole because we don’t have one good enough to do the job by themselves. The latter is at times like playing with ten men and severely impacts our ability to get the ball forwards and create goal scoring chances while the former means that on the spending occasions that we do, they are usually spurned.

I think signing a top CB could save us 5-10 goals a season, but either a top CDM or a top CF could lead to is scoring 10-20 more.

I’d take either of Haaland or Saul over any of those duos.

Rice is overrated, Kane would spend more time injured than fit and Varane is way down the list of CBs I’d be looking at. Sancho could make a big impact (as too could Kane if he could stay fit), but neither would transform the side in the same way that H or S would.
