Umtiti to United seems to be gathering pace . Just what the defence needs -well he will do for starters πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

{Ed002's Note - There was a January attempt but sometimes it is not so easy to complete transfers and a lot of time is lost trying to get a deal in place. Manchester City put a lot of effort in the last couple of weeks of the transfer window to try and sign Fred, but now they need to wait until summer; Chelsea spent much of the transfer window trying to agree the move for a player; Liverpool would have taken Nobby Keita early but that was not possible without paying a sum they could not stomach; Arsenal put offers on the table for Medhi Benatia but got nowhere at all; Manchester United tried to sort a deal for Samuel Umtiti in January but were told that Barcelona wanted his replacement in place before they would let him go – and all of their efforts to sign Dayot Upamecano failed because of a ridiculous price tag. It is sort of the way it is now.

I am not aware of any change in the situation with Umtiti but Barcelona do see Umtiti as demanding too much too quickly from the club financially after such a short period of time. I think perhaps one to wait and see what happens and it is potentially a case of his representative looking for leverage.}

Thanks for the reply Ed02πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 05 Mar 2018 16:54:40
Great reply Ed002, thank you very much!

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

3.) 05 Mar 2018 17:33:49
Who else gets all sorts of 'urges' when they see the long red paragraph from Ed002? Or is it just me? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

4.) 05 Mar 2018 17:59:53
type of urges are you referring to?

5.) 05 Mar 2018 18:46:51
The ones you can't display in public FZZ.

6.) 05 Mar 2018 19:19:02
Ok haha, no I don't get them.

7.) 05 Mar 2018 22:22:58
Great response to post Ed002. πŸ‘πŸ‘.

8.) 06 Mar 2018 11:28:36
Great insight as always ed!

9.) 06 Mar 2018 15:05:16
I think Umtiti would be a fantastic addition, he is a very good LCB, good composure on the ball, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

10.) 06 Mar 2018 16:19:46
Must mean departures then if a centreback is lined up. Also heard we're interested in Alderwierald.

{Ed002's Note - Just to repeat what has been explained, in no particular order:
Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester City and Real Madrid
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let hom leave this summer for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme
Samuel Umtiti (CB) - unlikely right now as another English side who have enquired have been told he is negotiating a new deal - if that can't be agreed we will see, but Barcelona won't sell before they have a replacement and that is provining financially difficult
David Lopez (CB) - do not rule him out}



07 Jul 2017 22:24:22
And so silly season has begun. Chelsea have matched the Utd bid for Big Rom Β£75 mill πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 08 Jul 2017 06:18:35
Looks like he is still choosing United.



09 Dec 2016 10:42:10
Laporte to Man Utd has raised its head again in Spain . He snubbed Citie if you remember and they went for Stones. Β£52m buy out I think was stated in the summer -One of Pogba's best buds πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no interest from Manchester United and there is no "buy out" clause and where would he get the money to pay such an amount?

1.) 09 Dec 2016 11:44:50
I didn't think he snubbed city I thought he got a long term injury.

{Ed002's Note - He signed a new contract at Athletic Bilbao as he was concerned he would not be a first team regular at Manchester City. The same reason kept him away from the previous interest of Bayern Munich and Barcelona, although there is no secret that he would eventaully like to move to Barcelona.}

2.) 10 Dec 2016 10:35:18
Bit surprising he didn't back himself there, i'd have him over otamendi, kolarov and stones at centre half.



07 Apr 2016 20:17:10
Jose will be unveiled as new Manchester United Manager on 10th June according to Spanish media which coincides with the conclusion of the Chelsea Doctor court case on the 6th of June. Makes sense πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 07 Apr 2016 20:37:35
And what happens if LVG achieves his objective of champs league football again?

2.) 07 Apr 2016 21:25:13
I'm sorry to put a spanner among the works, but I'm the next manager. The March hare as my assistant and the Wueen of hearts as my motivational speaker. Fellaini. Off with his hair.

3.) 07 Apr 2016 22:00:58
Will be 1st july.

4.) 07 Apr 2016 22:17:00
Too late Supa. He'll want all the new signings before July πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

5.) 08 Apr 2016 08:41:44
Unfortunately I think we are stuck with lvg.

6.) 08 Apr 2016 12:49:34
I didn't think United could even talk to Mourinho without informing the stock exchange as its potential to affect the share price.

7.) 08 Apr 2016 14:38:34
He already working on transfers Bfro if you believe the rumours.

8.) 08 Apr 2016 15:28:14
If we stick with LVG the board are stupid and should be sacked too!

9.) 08 Apr 2016 15:34:29
Sukhyrai it is a stock exchange not CIA, unless we sign contract with Jose we don't need tell them anything.

10.) 08 Apr 2016 15:52:44
Your probably right Supa. I can just see it now Jose being unveiled on the same day Euro 16 kicks off. He would love that πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.



04 Jan 2016 18:21:16
Anybody seen that the football super computer has got us finishing 3rd behind Champions Arsenal and the noisy neighbours . Bottom three are supposedly going to be Norwich Sunderland and Villa . I know it's just a bit of fun but I would settle for that at this moment in time and maybe add the fa cup aswell. Sorry dreaming again πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 04 Jan 2016 21:31:48
I think I'd take that as well, he'll I'd take 4th begrudgingly right now.

2.) 04 Jan 2016 21:52:02
Definitely take that. About time Sunderland went down.

Zlatan -what a guy! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 31 Mar 2018 22:53:11
That was some goal.

2.) 31 Mar 2018 23:00:39
Delighted for him. Deserves to be appreciated in his twilight years without the pressures of playing in a top league.

3.) 31 Mar 2018 23:59:21
Nearly unbelievable but with ibra its what you expect. We just got him 5 years too late. A fantastic player at his best.



02 Mar 2018 21:57:15
I think Bellerin would be a great addition if he decided to leave Arsenal. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 02 Mar 2018 22:13:19
Be great if he learned how to defend.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 01:11:06
And learn how to cross. I would take a punt though he has shown in the past he has the talent.

3.) 03 Mar 2018 06:48:43
So he can’t defend and he can’t cross but we should take a punt on him? I think his stupid haircut disqualifies him πŸ˜„.

4.) 03 Mar 2018 08:01:16
Barca and juve after bellerin, would anyone take a punt on ryan shawcross as a stop-gap for a couple of seasons until tuanzebe takes up the mantle?

5.) 03 Mar 2018 11:28:07
Ryan shawcross no way. Smalling jones rojo tuanzebe lindeof blind and possibly lukaku are all better centre backs than ryan shawcross.

6.) 03 Mar 2018 11:43:03
Good player, or rather player with good potential. He was amazing in his first 18 months at Arsenal, was one of the highest assisters in the league in his first season. Great going forward but required improvement on the defensive side of his game, acceptable though as he was only 18/ 19.

However, he has since lost confidence and with it his attacking flare, leaving a player who struggles defensively while not offering much going forward. The talents still there, he just needs a manager who can nurture him, rebuild his confidence and teach him how to defend properly. Unfortunately I don't think Mourinho is the man to nurture and rebuild the confidence of a young player. He could be a world beater, or he may never regain that confidence and swagger he had during his breakthrough season. Rashford is currently going through something similar, lost a bit of confidence, needs to re-find it and build on it.

I would steer clear of Shawcross, decent player but nothing special. Personally I think Tuanzebe is ready to be thrown in straight away, he will make the odd mistake but so do all of our current CB's.
In the games he has played for the first team he has been excellent, not once letting us down. Physically he looks ready, he has great reading of the game regularly covering for more experienced teammates and is talkative and organises well.

7.) 03 Mar 2018 14:52:14
A resounding no to shawcross he is shocking. We have enough calamities in smalling and jones. We need quality not quantity. Bellerin on the other hand is young and has the talent to improve. Not many players are improving at Arsenal and if he moves on I think he will turn out to be a top player.



17 Feb 2018 17:45:33
Keep your eye on Billing for Huddersfield. Very promising and a good Carrick type passer. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.



07 Feb 2018 22:36:39
Loving the new England training shirt . Why the hell is that not the World Cup shirt. They must of asked the 10000 Leeds fans who voted for their new badge . πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.



01 Feb 2018 15:15:18
Hi fellow reds
If any of you lot get a spare 5 mins give "rare pitch camera of 1999 champions league-The last 3 minutes" "a look at on you tube. All I'm saying is WOW πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

1.) 01 Feb 2018 18:43:12
That is brilliant! Encapsulates, in three minutes, what the game and Manchester United are all about. Got to feel for Bayern players, just brutal bloody-mindedness.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 19:12:51
The Bayern fans were so bloody good about it after as well. Buying us drinks all night and singing with us. I dread to think what would have happened if it had been the other way round.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 21:02:37
Saw it a few years ago. Amazing.

It may just be me but I quite like Maguire . The way he breaks from the back and breaks play up. "Like a young Steve Bruce"πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

{Ed001's Note - without the defensive ability or reading of the game of Bruce. In fact the only similarity between the two I can think of is that they both have a face only a mother can love....}

I can see him being offered around but not to that lot. Sanchez has changed things for him at Utd. Pogba needs to be in the attacking mid role linking up with Lukaku but Jose sticks Sanchez there instead of putting him on the left or right. Maybe today he will answer Pepsi by grabbing the winner πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.

As a former keeper one miss-kick per game is good going and the pace of a Utd -City derby would I imagine create a lot more in 90 mins
DDG is the best around and made up later in game. I would of saved the second goal when I was in my prime and DDG looked like he was disappointed he didn't get to it. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†.
