Any interest in Hererra from Porto, as he will be a free agent and I think will be a good addition to our midfield?


{Ed001's Note - he signed for Atleti the other day.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 13:25:36
Thanks, I have no idea how I missed that.

{Ed001's Note - obviously by not reading my 'review of the day' news round up!}

Burn! 😁.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 16:51:30
Ouch Ed 😁😁😁.



20 Jun 2019 13:57:51
Is there any interest in Douglas Costa from United? I think he will be available this summer and I don't think Juventus will want that much for him. Could see him fit at the right wing. And one more name - Ziyech, any interest in him? Top quality player.


{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

1.) 20 Jun 2019 14:19:56
I hope not.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 15:43:03
Do we really need another player with a huge ego who has failed to really make it at top club's in the past. He struggled to push an aging Robben and Ribery out of the Bayern line up, now he struggles to hold down a place at Juventus.

Do we really need a Di Maria 2.0?

3.) 20 Jun 2019 16:31:52
Ed002, I did and I didn't find anything for Ziyech. As for Costa, he is mentioned on one post, where the price was too high.
Shappy, how do you know that his ego is big? And he did very well for Bayern, especially the first season. And how do you think someone can push Robben or Ribery from the line up, when they were in top for then? Don't compare him to Di Maria, we all knew that ar Di Maria preferred.

{Ed002's Note - So that sneers the question about HZ. I have explained on multiple times about DC.}

4.) 20 Jun 2019 18:23:16
Ziko, ultimately I don't, but there are rumours saying he has an attitude. He went to Juventus when Robben and Ribery were 33 and 34 having not been able to push them out of the line up.

Think about this logically, Bayern Munich, a top club, were happy to sell him.

Now Juventus, also a top club, are also happy and even activity looking to sell him.

How many top club's need to move him on before people start to question why?

If our ambition is to be in the UCL and challenge for titles like Juventus and Bayern Munich then we shouldn't be signing the players these clubs don't see as being good enough for them. That's how you become a small club, by signing the top club's cast offs.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 18:31:28
Thanks! I feel sad about HZ though. I'm sure he will impress in the best leagues.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 19:00:09
Shappy, Costa went to Bayern when Rib and Rob were 32 and 31, and I repeat myself, they were at top forms. And you give as an example that Bayern moved him on and Juve want to do the same. So, Robben was at Chelsea, then Real, now Bayern. There can be a lot of reasons for a player to move or to be moved. And there are many, many players that proved themselves at their next clubs. I rate Costa, you don't :) Just can't see better wingers at United at this moment.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 19:40:03
Ziko, I said they were 33 and 34 when he LEFT Bayern and went to Juventus. At a time when both Robben and Ribery were struggling for form.

He might be better than what we have, but he brings issues with him and he isn't at the level we need if we want to get back to the very top.

8.) 20 Jun 2019 20:41:55
My bad for the ages. We can't sign the likes of Hazard this season, I think. We have to start from somewhere. Tell me if you have some wingers in your mind.

9.) 20 Jun 2019 23:08:48
Personally I would go with young up and coming wingers. Traditionally we have faired far better with developing talent than buying the top players.

Sancho would be my top pick. Although we could go for players such as Klivert, Lozano, Hudson-Odoi, Nicolas Pepe or Thuram.

10.) 21 Jun 2019 07:27:15
Sancho is my pick as well, but didn't mention him, because I think he'll stay with Dortmund. Pepe and Lozano are options, I agree.



18 Aug 2017 10:04:00
So, the summer card tower fell because of the transfer ban, I mean Lacazzete -> Atletico, Greizmann -> United. But could it be another one in the winter, Costa -> Atleti, Greizmann -> United. Costa wants it bad and I think they need to sell, because they have many forward players. Are United still working on the frenchman? And what's going on with Aurier? Who is closer, United or Spurs. Quality player if not causing problems of the pitch. And are we looking at a winger other than Perisic. I've not seen any links to other. Eds could ypu answer? And last thing, if Roma are pulling out of Mahrez deal, I personally prefer him to Perisic. Any interest from Mourinho? Thanks and sorry for the long post. Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Griezmann is not leaving. Aurier look to have completed the deal for Aurier. MU has shown no interest in Mahrez.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 10:14:37
I'd be very happy with Aurier and Perisic (better if Lemar) for now.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 10:19:29
ED002 Aurier looks to have completed the deal for Aurier?

{Ed002's Note - And Spurs.}

3.) 18 Aug 2017 10:21:02
Long post?

Thats just the first sentence for Shappy :)

4.) 18 Aug 2017 10:25:04
Who's completed the deal for Aurier? Thanks for the fast answer.

{Ed002's Note - PSG.}

5.) 18 Aug 2017 10:30:28
I think MU are probably done for transfers this window I was confident on one maybe 2 but I think we're finding it difficult and I can't see Mourinho buying for the sake of it.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 10:34:34
Agreed Dave I expect to see very little movement in or out.

7.) 18 Aug 2017 10:39:24
I think Mourinho will say today if we are done for this window.

8.) 18 Aug 2017 10:26:03
Sorry Ed002,what did you intend to say regrading Aurier?

9.) 18 Aug 2017 11:13:25
Oh, Spurs. Now Ed002 don't go getting my knickers up in a twist, thought it was us that got him.

{Ed002's Note - Screwed up. Probably going to Spurs.}



16 Jul 2016 08:44:58
Sorry if it's being asked..............


{Ed002's Note - Try the Leicester page.}



10 Jul 2016 08:30:33
Sorry if someone write this and I've missed it but if Mata is wanted by Everton, why not use him and try to get Barkley, a unique player, talented, strong plus he's English.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 12:17:28
Yet another number 10, play him where exactly?

2.) 10 Jul 2016 15:36:22
Barkley is rubbish.

3.) 10 Jul 2016 16:04:49
Messi is a N10, Barkley is an attacking-minded CM, but at his age with a good guiding from a good coach he could be a perfect midfielder even in a 2 man midfield. But you guys know better. I'm sure you think that Dele Ali is better, don't you?

Cheers, lads, see you all in January. I'm sure we'll start strong, be close to the top, then get Bruno, Dybala, Mandzukic and Eriksen and of course the title is ours! Wish you all well #GGMU.

So, we didn't get a midfielder. I hope Angel Gomes will be given a chance behind the striker. I think if we play 4-2-3-1 he should be picked up before Mata and Lingard.

I wonder what happened with the technical director or director of football Unite were looking at.

Hope never dies (until the deadline), we'll have a midfielder even if it's Jonjo Shelvey!

One thing I'm sure of is that if we don't sign a midfielder, there is absolutely no way Pogba would be allowed to leave.

I'm sure if Ed calls Levy, the first thing Levy will say is "Β£300m, please"

For this price, I would take the risk.

Agree on Tierney, with the price Arsenal are quoted, we should be all over him. It would have been a good competition between Shaw and him.


{Ed0333's Note - very injury prone not sure he’s worth the risk

I think Sanchez should pay the price for James!
