Eds, any chance of Rice, Neves, or Phillips before the end of the window?

I feel that with all of these world class players that were just signed, it would be heartbreaking to have such a need at a vital position.


{Ed002's Note - There is no space in midfield at this point in time.}

1.) 31 Aug 2021 19:35:52
Wolves chasing Boubacar Kamara, a defensive midfielder. That will get United fans talking and hoping for a few hours.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 21:42:10
No chance.

3.) 01 Sep 2021 00:22:10
The clown thinks Fredis Roy Keane.

4.) 01 Sep 2021 04:30:29
dazw, you just insulted Roy Keane there 😊.

5.) 01 Sep 2021 08:31:07
Dawz, by all reports Ole wanted a DM so don’t think there’s much substance to your statement.

6.) 01 Sep 2021 21:57:27

Don’t talk sense mate, he’s a clown and everyone on here knows better.

7.) 02 Sep 2021 07:13:36

Yes, even a clown would know better.

If Ole really wanted a DM, there would had been a plan laid out to move players out early to make space in the team which didn't happen.

It was just the opposite that we dished out new contracts to ageing players and blocked moves for some while keeping the likes of VDB who doesn't seem to be in Ole's plans anyhow.

A CB and CM should had been the priority this window with the RW a bonus signing but everyone knew what Ole's top priority was and that's Sancho.

In short the CB and RW was the priority for Ole and a CM seen as a bonus signing if it happened. There was no serious attempts to make that happen.



30 Aug 2021 14:23:14
Hi Ed002,

With the Transfer Deadline in the home stretch, do you believe that United will sign a DM? Or, maybe I should ask are United actively trying to sign a DM?

I appreciate it, and have a great week.


{Ed002's Note - Yes it is possible, if they can make space. Enjoy your week.}

1.) 30 Aug 2021 16:35:00
Think VDB could be moved out on loan if a DM could signed.

2.) 30 Aug 2021 19:07:20
Why move VDB out? I’d suggest he is the one most likely to benefit from playing alongside a proper DM.

Fred + a DM is just an even more defensive version of McFred. McTominay would benefit from having more freedom to get forward, but not as much as DVB. Pogba would benefit from the freedom, but he doesn’t put in the defensive work and would leave the DM shouldering the entire defensive workload. DVB puts in a shift defensively when needed, but would use the freedom to find space in and around the box to make things happen.

IMO, if Pogba stays, Fred has to be the one to make way for a new DM.

3.) 30 Aug 2021 19:37:50
Offer Fred and Lingard to West Ham for rice 😶
Seriously though, any chance of a shock move for rice? I w.

4.) 30 Aug 2021 16:28:49
Any clues on who Ed ;)

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed. I am not aware of new targets.}

5.) 30 Aug 2021 18:19:52
Am hoping that’s a cryptic Ed002 comment!

6.) 30 Aug 2021 19:36:48
Ed002, regarding to your previous answer from this afternoon : James sold for 25M£+5M, is that enough space made for a DM to come in? Or will that money be allocated to Cristiano's transfer/ salary? Or will it go straight into the Glazers' pockets?

Lesson learned from Cristiano and James transfers is a transfer can be made in less than one day, I'm still hopeful for a DM tomorrow. And being greedy, also hopeful for another club than West Ham to move for Lingard.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the bitching, sorry. It would be a waste of my time answering.}

7.) 30 Aug 2021 20:27:25
I don't understand your answer regarding the bitching, it was a genuine and honest question, I'm not bitching. I wanted to know if you had information about this profit from the club, will it be used for a transfer for a midfielder, or to pay Cristiano, or to pay the Glazers.

I know written communication can be misinterpreted, in my messages here I've always been thankful, I don't understand why I'm accused of bitching and wasting time, that's kind of undeserved. English is not my native language, I'm trying to be understandable.

{Ed002's Note - The “Glazer’s pockets” is typical misinformed and embarrassing post.}

8.) 30 Aug 2021 21:03:58
Alright, thanks for clarifying. Sorry to be "embarrassing", I'm not sure I deserved to be spoken in such a condescending way.
I take from one of your previous answers that you're not aware of other new targets that the club is not actively trying for on a DM.

I'm really thankful for the informations but I think it doesn't justify adressing the posters so agressively when I've never been disrespectful or hostile, all the contrary.

{Ed002's Note - It is hardly agreessive - you are simply talking the opportunity to troll the site about the owners and make yourself look particularly stupid. But you did it very well.}

9.) 30 Aug 2021 21:07:08

After selling Daniel James, Does it mean we have made that space for a DM to buy?

Thanks and Hoping your having a nice day! .

{Ed002's Note - There is space to add a player.}

10.) 30 Aug 2021 22:28:40
Now I'm a troll and stupid? I'm sorry if you feel I'm wasting your time, but telling me things like that is really agressive and unfair. I have other things in my life to do than trolling, I don't get where you see that in my post. I come here to get informations, for which again I'm grateful. I've been reading here without posting for two years, well if it's for being unfairly treated this way I won't post again. Really I'm flabbergasted, there was no malevolent intention in my post, just honest and maybe ineducated questions, but nothing deserving this agression. You clearly misinterpreted my posts, I didn't want to antagonize or anything, at least have the humility to aknowledge that. You provide good information but it doesn't give you the right to speak to people that way. I get that we can annoy you with our many and repetitive questions, but come on don't read trolling anywhere, again if I come here it's to learn things, nothing else.
I regret this negative exchange but really I did nothing to deserve it. Have a good evening.

{Ed002's Note - So what about your stupid “Glazer’s pockets” remark? Why say anything so stupid? You are welcome to contribute to the site but the purpose is not to troll the owners.}

11.) 31 Aug 2021 02:26:10
Somebody needs a hug!

12.) 31 Aug 2021 10:25:14
Ericantona, we are all incredibly grateful to Ed002 for the insights brought here. I think it's a major reason for many of us tuning in. However you're experience here is not a one off. I've had the same a couple of time. Just grin and bear it. The benefits outweigh the pain.



16 Jul 2021 17:02:05

Does United have any interest in Kalvin Phillips?


{Ed002's Note - In the past yes, but not now.}

1.) 16 Jul 2021 22:31:20



05 Oct 2020 14:09:18
Hi Ed002,

Would Dortmund, at this point, still be willing to sell Sancho if their valuation is met? Or has this ship sailed now.



{Ed002's Note - Dortmund will continue with Sancho as a player and talks will continue with the other interested sides during the season to see if agreement can be reached - but there would need to be a financial shift.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 15:43:41
Thanks Ed002 for your continued supply of information.



14 Mar 2019 08:24:43

A few reports out there stating that Pogba has had a change of heart and would like to stay. Have you heard anything to that affect? I know you've long stated he was still interested in leaving.



{Ed002's Note - It would be one report being repeated. I have no idea I am afarid.}

1.) 14 Mar 2019 10:23:22
I would very much imagine whether Pogba stays or goes will depend on what options are available to him.

His dream is to play in Spain, so if either Barcelona or Real Madrid come in for him I would expect him to push to leave.

Beyond those two its really only PSG or Juventus who could come in for him. How he feels about moving to them I very much expect will come down to money/ prestige.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 16:24:55
Thanks ED002.

3.) 15 Mar 2019 10:46:08
Would Barcelona be interested with de jong joining and the need to replace pique and Suarez in the next few seasons? I imagine Madrid now zidanes back is the main contender.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want to make significant changes but need to top up funds (significantly) by selling. Juventus remain very keen on Pogba but will look to an option thay have as an alternative. The change of coach will make little difference to their interest.}

I know Patty Evra has a little bit of crazy in him of late, however reading his interview with Sky really warmed me. The love and passion he has for United is so apparent in everything he does.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 13:38:02
Yeah, he is United through and through.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 13:52:18
You know what great about him. he watched DVDs of our history to learn and know the culture of the club.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 14:54:01
He was raised properly and bought into the club as much as any other player. I’m sure he won’t be short of media offers given his personality and love of football.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 16:14:44
I'm he'll get some top offers. No poultry fees for uncle Pat.

5.) 30 Jul 2019 16:29:27
His comment he calls his wife Roy Keane when she’s angry made laugh.

6.) 30 Jul 2019 17:07:08
You've seen the video mort 😂. Such a crazy guy.

7.) 30 Jul 2019 21:53:40
How about the Ed Woodward bit where he says he’s the director of football?



05 Jul 2019 17:55:13
Well, looks like Raiola has come out and said Pogba wants to go. At this point United really should not stand in his way. Tell RM and Juve that the highest bidder wins.

One thing is for certain, Pogba should leave on United's terms, not anyone else.


1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:25:17
Well this day and age the player has the power unfortunately. regardless what United want pogba will go

I just hope we get a good deal and move on. and hopefully learnt a lesson. shame really because pogba has all the attributes but lacks the desire and work ethic.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 18:37:43
I agree.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 21:21:57
Ed 02 another name being banded around in some of the red tops is Erikson at Spurs. Any truth?

{Ed002's Note - As a Fernandes replacement perhaps?}

4.) 05 Jul 2019 23:48:26
For me I’d sign either kroos erikson or milinkovic savic.

5.) 06 Jul 2019 03:35:44
Is there going to be a “highest bidder” this summer for pogba?

Can not see juve or madrid paying the amount for pogba that united want.

They are probably going to have to compromise on the fee or accept some sort of exchange deal for players the club are not particularly interested in.



26 Mar 2019 17:35:33

I know the subject of money is not your favorite thing to talk about, however I have a quick question. Should United pay off Sanchez to move him on, does that pay off still factor into the wages in regard to FFP?

Basically, though not paying him weekly anymore, United would still be in essence "paying his wages" by fulfilling his monetary terms of his contract.

Thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - If the club continue to pay his wages after he left it would count toward FFP.}

1.) 26 Mar 2019 21:50:44
This maybe stupid, but if Sanchez has 3 years left which adds up to say 50 million wages (random numbers here) could we not just sell him for that amount and use the money to pay him off?

2.) 26 Mar 2019 22:27:40
Who’s going to pay £50m for a 30 year old player who hasn’t been in any form for the last 18months.

3.) 27 Mar 2019 07:47:02
Man United!

4.) 27 Mar 2019 09:49:24
China would, I am not saying he will earn 50 million just used a random number.

5.) 27 Mar 2019 10:44:41
He prefers living in Wilmslow!

6.) 27 Mar 2019 12:41:07
Are even the Chinese that daft?

7.) 27 Mar 2019 14:17:55
They bought fellaini so there is hope mort.

8.) 27 Mar 2019 14:56:02
Maybe but Fellaini did at least have his uses and did chip in with an end product. What's the Chilean Elton John achieved?



07 Mar 2019 17:41:33
One thing I really love about Ole is just how ready his is to defend the badge at all costs.

When asked by a reporter yesterday if this was "old school United" the cutting of his eyes was apparent. He responded with "No! This is Man It'd, not old school . we always do this, it's what Manchester United does".

Made me have goosebumps.


1.) 07 Mar 2019 17:55:27
Hes so positive and breath of fresh air. Would love for him to get the job.

2.) 07 Mar 2019 18:14:13
That is a great quote to dwell upon. Ole makes a real effort to get his players to believe in what playing for Manchester United is all about. Not back then, not now. But if you play for this club, this is what it stands for, this is our mentality.

3.) 07 Mar 2019 18:56:24
We are Manchester United, Ole gets that and is part of the fabric of the club. That on its own does not make him qualified to be the Manager (there are plenty of others) but he hasn’t put a foot wrong. Every comment he makes just reinforces he is part of this club and ‘gets it’. With every passing week my estimation of him rises even further.



02 Mar 2019 12:43:01
I normally do not comment on money and such as I agree with Ed002, it confuses people me included.

Saying that, if reports are true that Brendon Rodgers is getting £200 to spend, surely United should be able to spend similar? As Ports said below, that is realistically what we will need to spend to address our needs, not to mention prices go up when it's United who are calling.

I just hope we spend wisely and on need. there are some solid players in the Prem who could come cheaper than those on TV ads (Nieves from Wolves strikes me as one) .


1.) 02 Mar 2019 14:00:26
I don't see neves as a cheap option at all. Wolves owners have invested heavily into the club and are in no need to sell the player. The deal would be very costly for club.

2.) 02 Mar 2019 14:38:01
Neves is reportably a £100m option if that is considered cheap these days. He's a top player. No doubt another club will get him for a lot less than that. But Man Utd always have there pants pulled down on purchases prices.

3.) 02 Mar 2019 14:45:53
£200 isn't going to go far the way the market is now. Might be able to resign Valencia for that though 😀.

4.) 02 Mar 2019 14:16:08
I can guarantee that United have more that £200 to spend. Pogba’s monthly hair dye bill is higher than that.

I'm an American, Obama is a clown and Rashford should do better than dip his toes in that mess. It's why I can't watch most of american sports anymore, I'm tired of politics and SJW stuff getting inside of it. Just play.

I am from America (lived in Watford for 4 years) . I have loved United since a little boy, but as much as it pains me, I will not support should this go ahead.

As an American, I am not typical as I do not support our sport over here (other than college athletics) because I despise the system. The promotion / relegation, the opportunity to come from the lowest levels and progress to the biggest stage (Vardy) has a draw that is so captivating. If the Super League goes ahead, those dreams will be dashed and the very thing that keeps me from US sports will now pollute the beautiful game I so love.

I actually think it would be smart to play him. Honestly, if Rashford is not fit for the match, we have to be realistic that 3 points would be a massive reach. There is nothing to lose for Ole to play Williams as we would not be expected to win the match at Anfield.

Besides, I think as much as Williams gets forward that could help fill the attacking threat down the left side with Rashford missing.
