Read that RM offering Bale to us so they can pursue Greaseman. Now I am not sure if we should go for any of them. I'd rather we save the money and buy Dyabala ( another report) .
Dyabala will suit us better and we should still focus on getting another couple of guys for defense and wings given that Shaw is still not up to par. Just in case Shaw doesn't make it for whatever the reason.
With the above I am quite sure Jose will be able to deliver big time as what he said (3 seasons) and hopefully we can launch challenges for a treble?
What'd you guys think?

Also interesting to see what happens when Ozil runs out his contract. Will he join us?
What're your thoughts? Eds great to hear your take on these pls.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what is happening with Griezmann now, he was only staying because they couldn't get Costa, so you would have to think he will go. United are still interested. However I don't know of any deal being in the offing.

I expect Oezil to leave England personally, it doesn't matter what he does here the media are on his case about laziness. At one point last season, a stats company put out the stats which showed he covered more ground than every one else on the Arsenal team and more ground than most players in the Prem. The media turned it into a joke, when they even bothered to acknowledge it at all. They mostly ignored it so they could continue banging the drum about his laziness. He would have to be mad to stay in England with the media who have no interest in truth. He can go back to Germany or Spain, where he is a massive hero, or go to Italy, where they would love him.}

Insightful Ed001. Most appreciated with many thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

24 Sep 2017 12:04:12
Dybala is a player I'd love to see playing 10 for us! He's got 10 goals in 5 games for Juve.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - Dybala would be a fantastic signing however I think he is destined for one of the Spanish sides}

24 Sep 2017 13:10:15
We'll have to go get Dele Alli instead then Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - I think Alli is a bit overrated and not worth what Spurs would charge us}

24 Sep 2017 13:10:22
Id much prefer Dybala over Bale ir Griezmann. That said i'd take Ozil over those two as well.

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Sep 2017 13:49:41
Ed001 amazing that anybody could label Oezil lazy. He id's always I the mice always showing for the ball. He breaks into the box well. Just because a player isn't flying into tackles every 2 mins doesn't mean he is lazy. I think he is a superb player technically excellent and tactically very astute. Not sure there is any truth in the reports of him wanting to go to united but it wouldn't shock me. I can see a couple of players looking to exit united in jan in search of games to make world cup squads and I'm sure there are a couole at united that would interest wenger so stranger things have happened.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - the problem with the English media is that they will look to drag down anyone. The guy was playing well so they couldn't criticise his ability, instead they had to pick at his workrate because it seems only players flying into 50/50s every few seconds are seen to be trying. It is incredible, he tracks back 50 yards in a game and the commentator completely ignores it, but they make a point of every moment he is not racing back 80 yards to throw himself into a tackle! They should be trying to see a balanced picture and look at what he does bring to the team as well as what he doesn't.}

24 Sep 2017 14:06:24
True ed. I thunk he is a class act. He does seem a little stale or de-motivated at aresenal.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - the whole team do at times look stale and demotivated.}

24 Sep 2017 14:40:59
that would be a "dirty move" if Griezmann moves from Atletico to Real Madrid.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2017 08:18:43
Not trying to piss off any of the Eds, but I have one question.

With Costa moving back to Atleti in January, does it open the door for Griezmann to make a move as well?

And do United still have an interest in him?

Thank you.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - Griezmann only held off the move because they could not replace him, so it is possible that he may decide to move. However, I expect him to wait until summer personally, depending on how Atleti are doing at that point.}

23 Sep 2017 08:54:16
Do we have alternatives to Griezmann? Not really a fan tbh.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2017 09:27:27
Thanks, Ed.

Do United still have an interest in him? Do you see us making a move for him in the summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't know off the top of my head sorry.}

22 Sep 2017 17:30:31
Do any of the Eds know the situation with Fellaini's contract? Is he likely to sign or is this going to be his last season for us.

He has changed a lot of opinions through sheer hard work and his form at the moment and for much of last season has been very good. He is limited yes but tries his hardest every week and we cannot ask for more from him.

Personally I'd like him to sign on again.

{Ed002's Note - nothing is resolved.}

Now rumors say pogba could be out for upto 3 months.

Believable1 15Unbelievable

15 Sep 2017 19:48:47
Ed, just wondering if we have any interest in Dendoncker? We were linked with him in the summer and supposedly we touched base with his reps and I've seen some more links today. Thought he stood out for them last year when we played them, even over Tielemans, so just thought I'd enquire, many thanks in advance.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There is long term interest from when JM was at Chelsea.}

14 Sep 2017 08:30:32
Reports today that pogba could be out for six week and that Jose wants ozil.

Believable5 4Unbelievable

14 Sep 2017 10:05:11
Shame about pogba hopefully herrera or fellani can do well in the b2b role hopefully pogba's back for the pool game as for ozil would stay well clear of the lazy frog.

Agree4 3Disagree

14 Sep 2017 13:00:41
Ozil gets a lot of bad press for me a lot of the time unjustly so and is one of the scapegoats in that Arsenal team when things aren't going well, his decision making and final pass is 2nd to none, lukaku and rashford would be licking there lips to play with him.

Agree5 5Disagree

14 Sep 2017 13:21:19
Stratford
He is a star player for a very good German national team . Player of the year 5 times in the last 6 year.

Agree4 6Disagree

14 Sep 2017 12:54:23
I would happily take Ozil, especially on a free Stockport. He gets so much undeserved criticism for when Arsenal play bad, again this season he's created so much for them but they waste everything he creates, making him look like he's had a poor game. If Jose can get him to the level he was at during their time in Madrid then we will be in for a treat as he's that good.

Agree4 2Disagree

14 Sep 2017 14:46:18
Who would you drop for Ozil?
And would that mean Griezmann is off the table?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Sep 2017 17:20:19
In a world where an average footballer can cost 40 million, Ozil on a free is a no brainer. Judge a fishes ability to climb a tree and you won't be happy wit the results. Ozil isn't there for his work rate and off the ball pressing. He's there as the key to unlocking a defence. Stick him in amongst world class talent and he'll shine.

Agree3 1Disagree

14 Sep 2017 18:09:30
Pretty sure Ozil ran about 1.5km further per game than Sanchez last season. I think his laziness is a myth. We've played well with Mata wide right this season and I'd see Ozil as an upgrade, so wouldn't be wholly against this at all.

Is it true that martial is not in the squad for tonight's game? Seems odd.

Believable0 2Unbelievable

12 Sep 2017 13:45:53
Seems odd too, unless he is getting rested for the next premier league game.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2017 13:50:01
Yeah been wanting to find out. His name doesn't seem to be in the list?

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2017 13:56:16
Injured?

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2017 15:10:36
No report of an injury yet jred. My fear for martial at the beginning of this season was that he would be the odd man out when all were available and that he wouldn't get the game time he needs to progress. Its early days but 119mins of football over 5 games despite his decent form speaks volumes. The lad needs game time I'm not sure he will get enough under jose when all are fit.
Maybe he is being held back for the weekend if the reports of him not playing tonight are true. If not it begs the question does jose fancy him? He has done well coming off the bench even if he didn't excel In the game he started.

Agree0 1Disagree

12 Sep 2017 15:51:18
Ken
I think he will be fine, going to be a top player .
Been involved in every game this season and scored 2 goals .

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2017 17:24:48
I think he looks our most dangerous player to be honest, very quick and direct. He should get plenty of game time. I'll be very dissapointed if he's phased out.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2017 18:42:57
He's in the starting 11?

Strange. Not in the squad but starting.

12 Sep 2017 19:02:04
One reporter started a story about him not arriving with the other players and it escalated from there. A New Ed has joined the ranks and he posted a piece about how stories are made up for click bate interesting read.

12 Sep 2017 19:25:05
Strong attacking lime up. New back 4. Can't wait.

{Ed004's Note - Looks like the resting of Valencia has started earlier this year}

04 Sep 2017 13:57:37
Hi Guys,

I just looked over to the european pages and saw a question asked about Greezman and Diego Cista by Deano which was answered by Ed002.

Here it goes :

Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid were close to signing Diego Costa on Friday but played up wrecking the deal. Clubs do not generally look to business in January but Diego Costa may be a player they look to again. Griezmann is less likely to move in January than in the summer but with Vitolo available it is perfectly possible that Carrasco might be available - and I am aware of one club who are keen. With Manchester United adding Lukaku and making the dumb decision over Ibrahimovic then the need for Griezmann goes away unless there is a plan to push him out to left wing where he has now transitioned away from. So perhaps Griezmann would be an option for next summer (unless MU again sign Ibrahimovic), perhaps they will look to buy him and waste him on the left in January or perhaps they will look again for a left winger in January - we will have to see. }.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

04 Sep 2017 15:04:34
Play griezmann behind lukaku and miki on the right or vice versa.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed004's Note - I am hoping by January that either Martial or Rashford have nailed down a place on the left and that Griezmann is signed to improve on Mata. That way we would have a bench of probably Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Rashford/Martial and Ibrahimovic.}

04 Sep 2017 15:25:04
I think ed2 makes some very good points above.

Agree3 2Disagree

04 Sep 2017 16:14:37
Personally I don't see the need for griezmann. We have Miki an Mata foe the number 10. We need someone for out wide.

Agree7 6Disagree

04 Sep 2017 16:23:48
Mort,

Griezmann is better than both of them players.

Agree7 5Disagree

04 Sep 2017 17:53:27
I think Carrasco for right wing would be my preference.

Agree1 3Disagree

04 Sep 2017 17:57:12
Miki's got how many assists this season and not even playing at full potential.

Agree6 3Disagree

04 Sep 2017 18:56:02
Just because we don't have Griezman doesn't make him better than Mkhi and Mata. We've waited whole of last season for Mkhitaryan to get familiar to the league and it doesn't make sense to shift him to the right for someone who isn't even at the club. Who knows what will happen till next summer. Maybe Monaco produce one more world class player and we go all out for him rather than Griezman.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Sep 2017 20:08:57
If miki adapts to pur leage and plays to his best he will be a top top player.

Agree4 0Disagree

04 Sep 2017 20:13:18
I don't see the point on splashing 100 mill on a fancy name when we'd have to move players around to accommodate him. Moving Miki turns him into another square leg in a round hole. Something I thought we as fans had had enough of the last few years and wanted to move away from. And not something Jose would be likely to do. Instead we'd be better off in signing a genuine singer or two.

Less of the body-shaming, Tony!

Agree6 2Disagree

05 Sep 2017 09:34:38
If micki has a good season why spend a fortune on griezmann. Would rather spend the money on a quality wide player ( not bale) and also look at improving our full back options.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Sep 2017 10:08:14
Think it's pretty simple tbh if the manager thinks we need him he will try for him if not he won't.
I think the days of us buying players unnecessarily are over.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Sep 2017 10:31:53
Watched a lot of miki b4 he came to us and altho its a different league, he is immense when he's on form!

If he can hit that form in the epl he will be phenominal for us leaving no need for grease-man.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Sep 2017 13:49:37
When a great player like Griezmann becomes available and asking for the MU move (If true), then you sign him. Worry about where to play him afterwards. He'll clearly replace Mata in the side. However it's a squad game and I'd rather lose Ibra in the squad and sign Griezmann. I think then we are as good as any side in Europe on paper.

Agree3 1Disagree

05 Sep 2017 16:11:46
He had his chance to move and blew it. We have higher priorities.

And by all accounts our kareoke is shocking.

Agree1 1Disagree

05 Sep 2017 21:34:43
I usually agree with Ed002, but was Ibra really a dumb decision? Cost no transfer fee, will show up at a time in the season when the squad needs reinforcements but he won't be cup-tied like every other great player. I agree that starting next summer I'd rather let Zlatan leave if it means making space for a player like Griezmann, but to call it a stupid move, bc it might have stopped us from signing a cup-tied player in January? Simply don't agree.

Agree3 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Stifling other players, stopping MU buying another stiker and costing enormous amounts of money. It was a dumb decision.}

05 Sep 2017 22:53:43
But wouldn't buying another striker, also on big wages have stifled the same players and also be a dumb decision.

Agree4 0Disagree

06 Sep 2017 08:52:57
I agree Mort, that honestly is the first time have heard someone say resigning (which was always the plan) Ibra was a bad move.
Proven player, great impact, different dimension, vast experience.
No doubt he'll understand he cannot walk straight into the team and we know where he can play.
Had we signed a new player, we would have so many unanswered questions.

Agree6 1Disagree

07 Sep 2017 20:12:08
Totally agree melwing.

Agree1 1Disagree

02 Sep 2017 20:01:48
Qatari Royal family trying to buy Manchester United apparently. Be very surprised if Glazers sold without legacy bonuses or whatever.

Believable2 3Unbelievable

02 Sep 2017 20:42:44
Old story doing the rounds from 2011. i think the glazers will see through one more round of tv deals at least before selling.

Agree4 0Disagree

02 Sep 2017 21:05:14
Yes I have no doubt this is regurgitated news. And I think with Brexit we will have the Glazers for many more years. Just my opinion.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Sep 2017 02:43:49
Surely Brexit and the resulting weak pound makes it a more attractive proposition? Or would it be purchased in dollars as it's listed on the NYSE?

Agree0 1Disagree

03 Sep 2017 09:10:58
Unless after seeing how transfer fees have gone this year they don't want to be spending 300 million every summer.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Sep 2017 11:40:55
USD probably going to be smashed soon, (already getting hammered), so whilst GBP and USD are weak it may be an opportune time for a deal. Especially with Qatar sanctions and other geo-political problems emerging in Qatar they may want to act quickly to secure more solid overseas assets that aren't dependent on natural gas for example.

Agree0 2Disagree

03 Sep 2017 13:14:44
Im sure Ed002 mentioned maybe 18 month back that the Glazers were actually looking to sell around now, can any of the Eds confirm this?

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The exchange rate has shelved plans most foreign owners had for selling for now.}

01 Sep 2017 11:36:34
Did Bruno Amorim actually sign for Us?
