Rumours today that we are interested in MUller.

Who would people prefer?

Mandzukic or Muller?

I'd say neither unless it was the 1974 version of Gerd Muller.

yer man

1.) 25 Oct 2019 13:12:30
I'd take Mandzukic. He'd suit a pressing system and offers something different to rashford and martial.

Having been burned twice by Bayern with Bastian and Hargreaves I would steer clear of Muller. Bayern only sell when they know players are on the decline.

It seems we have a new target
someone from athletic bilbao. Does anyone know any details?

yer man

1.) 07 Aug 2019 20:41:55
Inaki Williams £81m lol.


2.) 07 Aug 2019 20:48:45
Fastest player on fifa 19 apparently. Apart from that nothing special I hear. Anika William's or something like that is his name.


3.) 07 Aug 2019 20:51:43
25 year old forward who is mega quick but doesn’t have a great scoring ratio.

Think it’s just a rubbish story.


4.) 07 Aug 2019 20:54:47
Inaki Williams? Seems very fast and can play across front 3. I think ed001 may have done a profile on him.


5.) 07 Aug 2019 20:56:44
Inaki Williams I think you're talking about. Pacey winger / forward from what I understand, ut no idea if we're actually interested or who he is.


6.) 07 Aug 2019 20:58:02
Yes. Seen him a few times. Quick player. Knows where the goal is but I woukd not put him anywhere near the elite level of strikers and doubt he will ever reach that level.


7.) 07 Aug 2019 21:12:41
Pacey winger, can also play striker. Decent player actually. And I'm sure we were scouting him a few seasons ago during LVGs time.

Haven't paid much attention to him the last season or so, ed001 is the man to ask.


8.) 07 Aug 2019 21:29:05
Seems a Lot to be paying for a third or fourth choice.


9.) 07 Aug 2019 22:44:08
Not worth the fee at all.


10.) 07 Aug 2019 22:56:32
He’s a right winger, something we have all been asking for. Just played up top last season.


11.) 07 Aug 2019 23:18:01
Park would you rather the money went into the fat cats pockets and we buy nobody. Like GDS says he's a right winger
And by the looks of it a very fast one with an eye for goal who should fit into our system very well .
We had 5 positions to fill if we get a right sided attacker that's 3 of them filled with an AM and DM to concentrate on next that's a satisfactory window.


12.) 08 Aug 2019 01:17:53
Of course I wouldn’t Scott but that’s not the point. Yes we need a rw but why are we desperately signing someone for an extortionate fee whose goal record is poor in what seems to be a panic buy? If we are really willing to go spend 80m then go buy zaha whose premier league proven instead of someone who young have no idea how he will perform. We’ve got enough players who are up and down like the wind. Personally that money should be spent on a midfielder and then Sancho should be priority next summer.


13.) 08 Aug 2019 06:47:43
we can prioritize players all day long long. But its weather the player would come.

Jovic was supposedly going to Madrid but Frankfurt say no contact apparently is there any interest from United?
And is he frankfurts to sell or can business be done with Porto?

yer man

1.) 10 May 2019 01:31:42
I think Frankfurt have now purchased him from Benfica (not Porto) and so all dealings are with them. Smart business from Eintracht.


2.) 10 May 2019 02:02:01
He's nothing to do with Porto mate. He was at Benfica but is Frankfurts player now.


3.) 10 May 2019 13:29:30
My mistake thanks for clearing that up.


 

 

12 Apr 2019 10:55:27
Hi Ed's, is there any interest in Acosta as suggested?

Great talent, but i'd love to see Angel Gomes get the chances and they are very similar.

yer man

{Ed002's Note - Luciano Acosta (AM) has been watched by PSG, Manchester United, Genoa, and Newcastle but Fenerbahce have made an enquiry. A WP would be very difficult for England.}


1.) 12 Apr 2019 11:01:40
Thanks ed 02 for your quick response, great wee player all the same.


 

 

24 Aug 2017 18:46:15
With the countdown to the end of the transfer window do any of the eds think that United will sign a new winger or wing back before the end of August?

yer man

{Ed004's Note - I've a feeling Zlatan will be the last signing}


1.) 24 Aug 2017 20:07:01
Some talk of Arda Turan on a free transfer.


2.) 24 Aug 2017 20:35:40
Free? They should be paying us if that's serious.


3.) 24 Aug 2017 21:35:46
Now that Shaw is back, I doubt it. We have Shaw, Darmian, Blind, Rojo, Tuanzabe and Young all capable of playing LB. Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Lindelof and Tuanzabe at RB. We don't play with wingers, and we already have Rashford, Martial, Mickey, Lingard, Mata and Young as wide players. Besides, it seems like the elite fullbacks available have already moved. just my opinion.


4.) 24 Aug 2017 22:25:37
I still think failing to by a wide man will cost us this season.


5.) 24 Aug 2017 22:48:41
Thanks ed004 that was my feeling just wondered if anything else in the pipeline

The word was Jose wanted a specialist winger and or a wing back if that wasn't possible I still think and hope there might be a surprise.


6.) 25 Aug 2017 09:48:51
More talk of Lemar today.


7.) 25 Aug 2017 16:42:51
I hope we go all out for Thomas Lemar before the window closes!?


8.) 25 Aug 2017 17:23:21
Apparently needs to be done by Monday as he's off on international duty after that and won't be released.


9.) 25 Aug 2017 23:17:11
Rosa, Free transfers are more of a Liverpool thing, so maybe Arda Turan is heading there.


10.) 26 Aug 2017 07:29:42
Jaimej

For once I agree with you, we need that wide attacking player, a Sanchez, Bale type. I haven't seen enough of Lemar but failure to land that type of player leaves us short.


11.) 26 Aug 2017 13:01:45
Nah Liverpool don't need him. They need a keeper who can catch, two centrebacks who can tackle and a midfielder who can lead. What am I on about their bound to sign him.


12.) 26 Aug 2017 13:39:11
Apparently they're in for the Ox.


13.) 28 Aug 2017 16:20:36
Or apparently we will be in the hunt for Lemar. Seeing as you lot want him, that's got to hurt 😉.


14.) 29 Aug 2017 21:19:28
I would listen to the press too much Bobby so far this window we have been linked with everyone from captain birdseye to grotbags I doubt we would want lemar (personally I'd take grotbags ahead of Lemar she is much better up top 😉)

So that is all the business done for now. They said at the start they would looking for young, hungery, quick, homegrown players and despite the clamour for foreign signings, with Maguire, Wan bissaka and James, that's what they deluvered. There was also a deliberate emphasis placed on bringing players through and pre season they have tried that with no obvious loans to other clubs of the ones who could get a chance apart from Dean Henderson.
So The first few games should show if the youth will really get a chance.

With this in mind here is my preferred
First 11
De Gea,
AWB, Vic, Harry, Shaw
MC Tominay Pogba, Gomes/ Sanchez
M Rashford, Martial, Greenwood

Bench
Romero, Young, Dalot, Tuanzebe, Fred, Chong, lindgard, James. Mata.

Yes it's brave and some may say inexperienced but if this is the philosophy this should be how it goes if not from the start, very early in.
Just my tuppence worth.
Don't think it will happen but here's hoping.

yer man

1.) 08 Aug 2019 19:41:28
Yet man this is the most sensible post I’ve ever read on here. Ed’s can we get him banned? 😂😂😂

In all seriousness, if this is the case and we are going for young hungry British players and some additional quality when the chance arises, then let’s back it.


2.) 08 Aug 2019 20:27:09
I would say one thing on this though. Does the manager, the board, the owners think this squad is good enough to win the league? My guess is not, which says how far the standards have slipped all across the club and went we are now willing to accept.

Ah well - it’s Utd and we love them.


3.) 08 Aug 2019 20:59:14
I'll be honest, that midfield would get murdered by other top 7 or top 8 midfields. Pogba doesn't work hard enough and Gomes/ Sanchez aren't central mids.


 

 

07 Aug 2019 14:50:28
Apparently we turned down an offer of a loan from Everton for Smalling.

I agree but any of those further down the pecking order no problem at all.

what do you think?

yer man

1.) 07 Aug 2019 15:07:40
They can have Jones and we can pay his wages if it means he isn't playing for us all season.
Calamity Jones!


2.) 07 Aug 2019 15:35:48
For me any of Smalling, Jones, Rojo and Bailly should be allowed (pushed out the door) to leave if an acceptable offer comes in.

I don't think a loan deal is the right move. They are looking to replace Zouma who's loan finished. However, if Everton have 70m to spend on Zaha then I'm sure they can find the cash to buy Smalling outright.


3.) 07 Aug 2019 15:38:35
Rather sell Smalling -walking penalty case and keep Jones personally. Smalling is dire!


4.) 07 Aug 2019 15:45:28
Why would we loan him? tiny loan fee although we would save the wages.
Id much prefer to shift rojo smalling is miles better than him.
Jones is too unreliable so i'd shift him before jones too personally.


5.) 07 Aug 2019 15:49:55
Before smalling i should say.


6.) 07 Aug 2019 16:01:45
Out of Jones, Rojo and Smalling the latter would be the last one of the three I would sell.

However, for me Smalling is at best fourth choice behind Lindelof, Maguire and Tuanzebe.

Bailly was looking much better during pre-season, and I would be tempted to keep him until the end of the season and see what he can do. On the other hand however his injuries are mounting up. Jones and Rojo need to go, but if there are no takers and we have a good offer for Smalling I would take it.


7.) 07 Aug 2019 16:19:01
jones rojo darmain bailly should all be gone before smalling

hes not a world class defender but he has on occasions pulled performances out the bag


our 4 defenders should be maguire lind, smalling and tunz for the season

have young as cover for shaw and dalot for wb


the rest can leave.


8.) 07 Aug 2019 16:25:04
Rojo should be the only 1 sold.
Smalling and Jones are good back ups.

You never know about injuries.
Football is a squad game.
Now days it's difficult to keep quality on bench.

For me both are excellent back up options to fill in those positions as and when required.
May be the are not up to our expectations.
As long as they are at our club we should respect them.
I don't like when people slate their own players.


9.) 07 Aug 2019 16:45:42
Neil, sounds like a plan. However, the problem is the the most likely defenders to be injured are Rojo, Bailly, Jones and Smalling in that order.

So does it make sense to keep them ALL in case two of Lindelof, Maguire and Tuanzebe (our three least injury prone players) get injured.


10.) 07 Aug 2019 17:34:10
You know you have just jinxed Lindelof, Maguire and Tuanzebe now Shappy.


11.) 07 Aug 2019 18:10:12
Probably 🤷.


 

 

07 Aug 2019 09:25:12
Well if nothing else, it will certainly be an interesting couple of days!
Eriksen, Fernades, Coutinho, Lukaku, Dembele, Dybala all involved in rumours. Half of which will be just fake news with clubs and agents running around selling to the highest bidder and over inflated prices being paid. expect a bazaar and the bizarre.
I don't think we have seen the last movements in or out of the club but if it finished with one attacking addition coming in I'd be more than happy.

yer man

1.) 07 Aug 2019 09:39:12
RW AM or CF and maybe two with Lukaku going. if not it should just accelerate the rate the like of Gomes, Chong and Greenwood getting games.


2.) 07 Aug 2019 10:33:33
Don't worry, by this time next year we will be talking about the same thing after finish out of the top 4, AGAIN.


3.) 07 Aug 2019 11:01:49
SMP I definitely think this window has seen an improvement in both direction and personnel. No matter what people think of Ole or Ed they want us to be challenging for top spots and I don't expect anything less.

19? He looks no more than 14 :-)

Most on these pages are all for giving youth a chance until they make a mistake and then the manger (ogs) or the ceo type (Ed etc) get slated for not spending. This is a dilemma that I think will surface many times this incoming season. It seems like the management are damned if they do and damned if they don't. That doesn't meant they don't have a direction or a plan. With the appointment of Nicky Butt to the first team it would seem that we will be focusing on getting the kids, who have done really well in pre season, to a standard that will see them playing regularly in the first team. If that's the case then we may not go for the big money signings that the press and some fans thrive on. It's not about money pinching, Ollie has said if the price is right we will pay but it proves a hardening of attitude that we won't be held to ransom by over inflated prices and just develop our own talent instead. IMO this is a welcome direction we are taking especially with the history of kids in our teams for years. It may not be popular and patience will be needed but it is a step in the right direction. The only down side is there will be less and less big money signings in each window and more of what we have seen, young up and coming home grown talent. Only time will tell if this is the right decision. I hope it works out well because there are some great exciting hungry kids coming through that could give us plenty of success in the future.

As well as Garner, I've been impressed with Ethan Galbraith in the under 23's but maybe one to come through next year.

I don't buy the 'we haven't replaced Herrera and Fellani' line.
Pereira is back from loan, Fred has been bought and we have seen the emergence of McTominay. I agree the quality isn't fantastic yet but the start of this season should tell if we have enough cover or need someone in January.
