Hi ed002. Is there any further updates on de gea signing a new contract. Do you expect that he will sign or move?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know if there are any updates, but his good option has gone so he will likely stay.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks ed002
Whats your opinion on the future football appointments facing united this summer.
Dof / tech director and obviously the manager position?
Secondly
Do you think both roles will be filled this summer.

{Ed002's Note - Manager certainly.}

27 Feb 2019 12:42:05
Krn if we appoint a DoF by the end of the season I will change my avatar to "I love Pep" for the whole of the summer transfer window.

Hi Ed I apologise if this has been covered by who are the ‘front runners’? Would you say it’s between Poch and ole? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think it is a race, Solskjaer will get the job as long as the club doesn't implode and compensation can be agreed. It could be a serious mistake given others who may be available, perhaps including Allegri?}

Hey Ed. What's the hold up with the DoF position? Can we not attract the right calibre of candidate? As a club are we seen as a bit of an unorganised mess, or is it Woodward taking his tim because he doesn't want to relinquish control of certain aspects of the club?

{Ed002's Note - Woodward is.}

27 Feb 2019 16:21:08
Its Woodward. What was it Ed002 said the other day, the dictatorship of Woodward.

27 Feb 2019 15:39:34
Thank you for the reply Ed. I find myself flip flopping between whether I want ole or not on a daily basis. I do have concerns whether he can get us competing with the best. I want to see us dominate the ball more against bigger sides instead of relying on the counter. I suppose this may improve with better players purchased. He’s done very well though. I think I’m still leaning towards Pochettino though. Spurs have an identity to their game.

Interesting you mention allegri. Always been a fan and he’s a fantastic manager but it seems Juve fans see him as pragmatic. I fear his style wouldn’t be appreciated with united fans. His time seems to be up at Juve with both him and Juve needing a fresh start somewhere else. Ed do you think he would be interested after being snubbed the first time around? Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - He arrived at a time when the club had a series of "softer" games coming up and that was a good idea - it gave a bounce and allowed folks to get used to him withiut any grief. Allegri had been the 2017-2022 plan for Manchester United and something has happened that means he may well be available this summer but the interest is from elsewhere. I very much expect Solskjaer will be offered the job, certainly if the club can get a Champions League place.}

That's the answer I feared the most. A glazer stooge that's intertwined in every aspect of the club. I remember you mentioning Ed that Carrington looked like a cheap ikea showroom. I've read that old Trafford is drastically in need of a lick of paint too. I wonder what it would be like to have owners that care about the club's interests?

{Ed002's Note - The owners do not run the club on a day-by-day basis and certainly do not give out painting contracts.}

27 Feb 2019 17:52:02
Great response thanks very much ed.

27 Feb 2019 18:00:19
Maybe there's some more sponsorship opportunities there. Dulux official paint sponsor and Ikea official sponsor of cheap hard to fit together tat.

27 Feb 2019 18:59:26
Yeah but they have their pet Woodward in charge of everything. Can we enter the Johnstons paint trophy then?
