Pogba not in the squad.

No, he's house hunting in Madrid as it's already agreed he'll go in the summer for £85 million so that we at least get out money back and relieve us of the burden of having him in the squad. To sweeten the deal Madrid will chuck in a metre long stick of chorizo.

Interesting rumour this morning, Real ready to move for Pogba. Could be paper trash talk of course but if they did and the money was big, would you sell? Clearly the boy has talent but he has yet to dominate a game or deliver on his potential. Is that down to him, the Manager, or a combination of both.

If the money was silly should we cash in? The problem with that is that he may go on and become the dominating player we believe is in there somewhere, and replacing him will cost a fortune too. For me, I’d seriously consider it though.

{Ed002's Note - There is zero interest in Paul Pogba from Real Madrid. They have very, very different ideas who they want.}

17 Feb 2018 11:41:22
There is no way we should be selling Pogba it would be crazy to do so.

Its likr selling the next messi and then trying to go buy a next ronaldo because we are noy patient enough.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Feb 2018 11:59:12
"Cash in" wtf? So some now want to sell Pogba when we have few midfielders for a pretty poor return? You bored with FIFA?

Maybe trying to get a game into him before seville match. We have missed him let's hope he has an injury free run from here on in.

On the Real Madrid pages its said that Madrid may be looking to let Asensio go in the Summer. Is he a player that United have looked at and will look to sign?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

16 Feb 2018 19:25:15
In the last sharkpood Ed002 said MU were interested as an option for LW if I remember correctly.

I don't know if its still the case after signing Sanchez and Mou repeatedly saying he won't sign an attacking players even though you can't believe everything keeps saying.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2018 20:20:38
Its bale who we are after as a winger. I assume the interest has gone for Asensio.

Hi eds, is there any truth in the reports from turkey yesterday that fellaini has agreed a deal with fenerbece and signed a pre contract?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I obviously have no idea about any reports in Turkey. I have explained for some months been explaining the situation and discussions that have been going on with Besiktas. If he has agreec a pre-contract with Fenerbahce I am afraid I am not the one to ask. I can't answer any questions about "what do you think of reports ..." Ken.}

16 Feb 2018 16:35:33
It was Besiktas, today he has been linked to Galatasaray. We will see.

Ed002 has been saying long ago Fellaini wanted out last Summer, and it was Mou who intervened.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2018 16:17:14
The reports were Besiktas.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense then. It is where I expect him to go.}

16 Feb 2018 16:19:32
Sorry ed my bad. i should have worded that differently.
Thanks.
Its obviously a false report.
Jose is obviously keen for him to stay but perhaps more regular game time is what he is after at this stage of his career.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Feb 2018 11:22:21
He needs to go. If he wants regular game time he has to go. If he stats he's just a bit part player and plan b. Frankly given the wages and his age its better he goes.

Are united still looking at umtiti of Barcelona for the summer or have they moved on? united badly need 2 cm's aawell as the centre back.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Yes Barcelona are one of the interested but Barcelona will resist a sale.}

14 Feb 2018 10:15:21
Hi Eds, Does Ac Milan maintain interest on Herrera?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Yes but I doubt it will go anywhere.}

14 Feb 2018 13:59:44
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Feb 2018 16:57:47
Ed,

Would we still go after Lewandowski in the summer or has the interest ended.

Thanks as always.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would not rule it out and I expect interest from elsewhere as well.}

12 Feb 2018 20:39:40
Hi Ed's. Do we stil hold an interest in Dayot Upamecano. Also is signing a Centre back a high priority in the summer and if so who is being looked at. Thank you as always.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Upamecano has been priced out of a move.}

13 Feb 2018 11:46:25
Umtiti might be the one we will go all out for .

I think we will buy dybala and play him as a goal keeper. just because Jose feels he will be good there. since Fergie left, the trend is set to play players out of position and multi tasking players handling positions rather specialist.

Whenever Jose speak good of Shaw. he drops him. Playing young in front of him that to against new castle is a puzzle. When energy is needed, he brings on Carrick and Mata in name of tactical changes. Despite woefully performance by Smalling and Jones he exclude Rojo, who is at least a fighter. Lindeloff not getting chances to settle and get his confidence. against smaller teams SAF always tried his and their luck. That always helped with depth. I loved him for that.

We don't have quality no10 still Jose is obsessed with playing 4-2-3-1. a simple switch to 4-3-3 and to many players come in right position.
Martial has started playing good on left and as soon as Alexis arrived he has been shifted to right. why?

Alexis is good on both side, he can be asked to attack from right. What's a point a breaking a young players growing confidence. Jose's thinking is bringing this team back. If I were him I will play bling in holding with Herrera and Pogba in midfield, with Martial and Alexis out wide.

To many questions can be asked to Jose that what's actually happening in the name of tactics? Sorry to say but it's fun to watch city, Liverpool and Tottenham. But optimistic Army will point to league position. tell me which was the last 5 game run, you got satisfied with both play and result.

3-2-3-2 next seasons formation fits every one in perfectly martial upfront with lukaku. Sanchez on the left pogba middle. Matic holding with someone who will help him and stay put. Bailly can hold the hands of the 2 either side of him and tell them to stop doing shite things like score og's or dive. Sorted for 18/ 19 just need 3 signings a cb a holding midfielder akin to a 25 year old Carrick and a right-sided player akin to a Beckham with crossing ability or a right sided giggs.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Feb 2018 02:01:28
So you would drop Matic and play Blind in holding midfield. Give your head a wobble.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Feb 2018 10:12:16
Dodgy. he is more defensive and intelligent on ball than Matic I guess. he I guess is a victim of his versatility. remember we bought him as midfielder only. and he was doing well before moved to CB. also on rumour front Barcelona is interested in him. speaks something of the lad.

Agree1 2Disagree

14 Feb 2018 13:25:50
if i remember right didn't jm say when he first joined that he will play players in there right positions.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Feb 2018 00:42:20
Have been hearing repeatedly since he joined that Jose needs 2/ 3/ 4 windows to turn us into a top team again. So which of his signings so far can we categorically call a resounding success? Not many I dare say.

One thing I cannot stand above anything in an elite level footballer is a lack of football intelligence. And I must say there seems to be a severe lack of grey matter in our team. Whether it's the players or the coaching or a bit of both, we look a yard off the other top teams in terms of ideas, movement, slickness, composure. Somehow it feels we can continue splashing money but the approach and tempo won't change.

"severe lack of grey matter in our team"
Precisely. 100% agree.

I think we have had varying degrees of success from all of Jose’s signings to be honest. Until about 2 weeks ago Pogba had been our best player this season, he has a couple of bad games (I think he was ill yesterday anyway) and suddenly he’s an awful signing.

We are missing Bailly a lot at centre half, I would like lindelof to get a go to be honest, lukaku has improved his game a lot, Matic is having a bit of a bad spell hit at the start of the season everyone was raving about him. We aren’t playing well but don’t think we are far off to be honest.

Agree6 0Disagree

12 Feb 2018 12:00:03
Sometimes I wonder about the intelligence displayed by our players, the simple things like passing to a player in space seems beyond their logic, they seem more comfortable passing a three yard pass to a colleague that is surrounded by three or four opposition players.

Picking out the main signings:
Bailly- class centre back when playing, looked a great signing last year. Been out as much as he's played, but that's just bad luck.

Pogba - under the negative spotlight now but even when his stock was high earlier this season he still had a massive question mark over his big game credentials for me. Misused by Jose or is he simply coming up short when it matters?
Zlatan - no one can argue with his goals contribution last year but would have to go down as a two-thirds season wonder for me, and that's accounting for his terrible injury. Resigning him was a joke.

Matic - started off superbly but I'm struggling with him. Is he knackered, is he being overused/ overworked, or is he simply past his best in terms of being the midfield rock over a full season?

I can't see him getting better next season, or the one after.
Miki - got rid as soon as we got a chance. Wrong player for this team and manager.
Lukaku - although I never wanted him and still don't, I've felt for him of late, as he's worked his socks off and vastly improved his link play, but gets next to nothing in terms of the right service. Not the right striker for us.

Lindelof - for a manager like Jose who goes out of his way to prove his decisions right, it amazes me how little faith he's shown in this guy, even with the smalling and Jones double act on show. Question marks.

So, how many more windows?
