Thanks for the sharkopod Ed002! So after listening to it would you all be happy with this.?
Outs Ins
Shaw. Alderwerield
Smalling Philipp max
Jones. Kroos
Martial Lozano
Darmian Bale

I’d be over the moon with that! Probably won’t happen but would be awesome!

Agree0 Disagree1

Id rather keep Martial and not go for Lozano if we are not biying another striker and give Martial the games at center forward.

The rest can go and the players you mentioned as ins will be a a good window for us.

16 Jul 2018 00:21:51
I wasn’t really thinking about martial as a striker as he mostly plays from the left. Lozano for me would work better on the left as he works his socks off and has the quality too. Still I will be happy if martial stays but Lozano would be a great replacement if he were to leave.

Pogba on the out lost as well potentially going off what ed said.

16 Jul 2018 01:43:25
After all the big names thrown around as usual, perhaps the most important name on that list is Philipp Max.

16 Jul 2018 06:53:32
Cheers Ed!

I'd be delighted with a couple of the names mentioned. Alderweireld, Max/ Sandro, Kroos and Bale added would be an unbelievable window. Lozano is also a very interesting player, if Martial goes which I'd prefer not to happen he would be a great replacement.

16 Jul 2018 10:20:56
Can't say I am excited by the possible ins. Alder only if we sell Jones or smalling first and if Shaw is determined to try and prove himself he deserves the opportunity to try. Kroos great player but where would we play him and would rather keep Tony than sign lozano. Bale wd at least fill the hole we have on wide right provided he was willing to play there. Personally would prefer a genuine right winger.
Sorry if this comes across as negative but just giving my opinion. Oh and would definitely look to keep pogba.

{Ed004's Note - I found it quite a concerning Sharkopod. Would be gutted to lose both Pogba and Martial. In particular Pogba who bar Modric was probably the most complete midfielder at the world cup. I'm now at the stage were hoping we only make 2 more signings in Bale and Toby with a few out goings such as Darmian, Jones/Smalling and Blind. Seeing reports this morning that Shaw will get preseason to impress. If I had my way I'd let Young go (would be very harsh) and have Valencia/Dalot on one side, Sandro/Shaw on the other}

SELLING pogba would be stupid.

Obviously the manager and the player had a fallen out last season but when he's given the licence to roam forward he is very good.

I think most of the players mentioned if sold would go on to become better players elsewhere and we will look very very stupid.

For all martials so called strops he is a very talented player. We paid over the odds and for all lvg negatives he along with Shaw was one of the few positives.

I would be gutted to loose martial and pogba.

Jose needs to loosen up otherwise I can't see him lasting past this season like many have said on here.

{Ed002's Note - Pogba is also happy to move on - time has come.}

Great update as always Ed. Thanks for pulling together.
The Pogba transfer like all of them needs a willing seller (concerning but we seem to be), a willing player (as Ed says Pogba seems ready to leave) and a willing buyer to match or get close to our valuation. This is where I think it may da down. Barca, Juventus and PSG maybe interested but are they willing to pay the money? Maybe some player movement to be involved to help.
If Pogba leaves we will surely bring another CM in, if not I think we are done in this area.

Morning guys, big thanks to Ed 2 as always for taking the time to do the Sharkopod.

I know many have reservations but the one name that still jumps out for me on that list is Gareth Bale. I assumed with Zidane leaving then Ronaldo being sold to Juventus that Bale would be staying at Madrid but maybe that isn't necessarily the case.

I think we should do everything we can to make this deal happen. I honestly believe a fit Gareth Bale can take us to the next level.

I think Ed said we might need to get creative and I wouldn't be against using Pogba and cash in some kind of deal to get Bale and maybe even Kroos or Varane. I know it sounds like fantasy football and in reality player swaps are rare but every player has a value and maybe some kind of deal could be done.

I really like Pogba but I think he's plays in moments or spells. You get a brilliant cross, pass, dribble or shot then nothing for long periods. Whilst he's a fantastic footballer I'm not sure he influences the game enough to build a team around. His stock will never be higher and if the Club are seriously considering letting him go then perhaps now is the right time. I certainly wouldn't be against allowing Pogba to join Madrid if we would somehow do a deal to bring Bale and Kroos the other way.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs are looking more toward including players, like they do in Italy, as there is simply not the cash around. Manchester United have so far resisted this but may, as you say, need to reconsider their thinking.}

16 Jul 2018 12:13:35
I'd be happy to see Pogba go, I can see swap deals with cash for the likes of Kroos/ Real, Thiago/ Bayern, Veratti/ PSG, Pjanic/ Juventus - I'd prefer all four of those players to Pogba and if it means we get a bit of money on top to help buy SMS or one of the three not involved in a deal, then we would be doubly strong.

If Martial isn't fancied then I'd be happy to see him go and we spend the money on a RW, as we have Sanchez for the left. I like Martial but no point in him rotting.

Most important signings we have to make are for a RB and LB (if Shaw doesn't cut it), happy with Mick from the Dog and Duck rather than Young out there, so anyone is a bonus. Wouldn't mind Sidibe on the right from Monaco.

Pogba to Madrid, bale and kroos the other way.
