Any chance of Memphis returning do you think guys? I'd rather him than Douglas Costa.


1.) 05 Jan 2019 03:12:14
I don't see why he'd want to. He wasn't treated too good by the fans or the players here and was used as a scapegoat for our poor performances at times. He's gone on to become a very good player, but I can't see him coming back.

Late double deal for Toby and Danny Rose?


1.) 09 Aug 2018 12:47:17
Yeh there having there medical as we speak.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 13:01:57
And they are also giving Alli on a season long loan with option to sign for 20m.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 13:18:49
No chance of levy strengthening a top four rival with one player ket alone two.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 13:42:06
Sailor, clean your ears out. We were offered the tea lady Sally on a loan deal. Woodward is considering as she marketed along with our new bootlace sponsor who are PG Tips.



29 May 2018 19:00:53
Anyone know anything about Diogo Dallot who we are apparently signing? Young Porto right back. His wiki page already updated as a Man Utd player.

Personally never heard of him and I'd prefer we go for his brother Win.

Thank you I'm here all week.


1.) 29 May 2018 19:18:33
His wiki page says he's a right arm cricketer and his current team is man city 😂.

2.) 29 May 2018 19:18:41
Boom Boom Eric 79! I think his brother Win has signed for Huddersfield, or at least I heard he was in talks with the terriers.

3.) 29 May 2018 20:53:54
Win Dallot? I've heard he can turn on the gas.



29 May 2018 13:42:47
Emre Can on a free anyone?


1.) 29 May 2018 13:50:44
Can he cook and clean? If so send him my way.

2.) 29 May 2018 13:57:43
Juve have him pretty much wrapped up. Wouldn't say no mind think he is a very good player. Will flourish at Juve.

Haha FZZ brilliant.



21 Jun 2017 08:11:39
Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.

Nice comments from RVP re Ole on the BBC today. Bit of a different perspective, quite refreshing to read.


1.) 22 May 2019 10:29:41
You echoed my exact thoughts Eric.



13 May 2019 20:38:33
Hi Eds- do you know who will be the chosen savour of Utd and be the new Technical Director or are we still to make a decision? Many thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - There is no decision that I am aware of.}

1.) 13 May 2019 22:57:25
Ed 02.excuse my ignorance but could you give a brief guide to what exactly is expected of most technical directors along with what sort of authority they commonly have. If they are for example in charge of/ direct a clubs transfer policy or youth policy then if were a manager I might find it hard to do my job if I felt my wings were clipped.

{Ed002's Note - Technical Directors tend to focus on running the scouting for the first team.}

2.) 14 May 2019 20:43:21
Thanks Ed.

Hi all, wanted to give my two cents on alexis Sanchez. Anyone else feel he has never really been given a chance or debt run of games to actually play himself into any form? For the life of me I do not understand why we don't play him up top instead of the human trampoline that is Lukaku.

My view is - sell Lukaku to Italy, and keeps Sanchez and play him up front to rotate with Rash and Martial left. Much better player all round. Add a right sided player with the Lukaku funds and wages freed up and there are goals in that side.

Centre mid is another story entirely - Pogba gets a lot of grief but he is basically expected to do it all. He's surrounded by dross! Don't even get me started on the back 4. Worst Utd defence in 30+ years easily.


1.) 26 Apr 2019 10:25:33
Sanchez is on the decline, he was never particularly quick but has lost a yard of pace in the last year or so. He doesn't work out wide anymore and could be best suited to a false No.9 position or as one of a strike partnership. However, he has been played in such a role and has still struggled on those occasions.

He is also known as a bit of a loner, and doesn't involve himself with his team mates much.

All things considered I would take the hit and move him on. his wages are destabilising the club, disrupting the harmony of the dressing room and he isn't doing anything on the pitch to make that worth while.

2.) 26 Apr 2019 10:39:58
A Sanchez redemption season next year would be fantastic, I just can't see it. Lukaku has been talking up a move to Italy ever since he lost his starting spot and all I see on here is he's got a great attitude and Rashford who works his bollocks off every game is a rotten egg. Somehow moving on Lukaku and bringing in a Sancho or a Chiesa would be wonderful.

Pogba definitely carries the creative burden by himself but he doesn't relish this challenge at all and will always be a luxury player. It's time to move him on, however with Herrera going and Fred being an energy-merchant we'd need maybe 3 midfielders coming in this summer.

The defence is awful as you say and that has been compounded by Dave being way off. Dave of last season would have conceded 10-15 less goals and that's not an understatement. Hopefully a new centre back plus AWB and some proper communication in the back 5 change things.

3.) 26 Apr 2019 13:15:29
Why are people obsessed with moving on Lukaku without bringing in a replacement?

When have Martial or Rashford ever given the impression that they can be consistent goal scorers? Lukaku isn’t playing well, and might well be angling for a move but neither Rashford or Martial are consistent enough to be the main strikers at a top club. We would be absolutely screwed if we had to rely on them next season.

4.) 26 Apr 2019 14:03:49
Sanchez has had plenty of chances and failed spectacularly. He WAS an amazing football player but he is clearly a shadow of that player, he started playing first team football at 16 and has played a huge amount of games over his rather successful career.

He has burned out and the club should have factored this in before giving a massive contract that lasted 4.5 years but they were desperate for good pr by defeating city to a player. Also we were heavily stocked in the left wing position and it was foolish to sign him when there was a gaping hole on the right wing which hasn't been filled for 6 years.

No sensible well run club will touch him and his wages so we are going to have to make use of him, maybe as a super sub off the bench when he could maybe still give us 10/ 15 minutes of average play.

{Ed025's Note - i cant disagree with any of that DSG..

5.) 26 Apr 2019 14:29:52
well we are stuck with him for next season at least.

cant understand why he hasn't been played on the right he played there for barca.

{Ed025's Note - hes a waste of space if you ask me bolger, he got his mega contract on mega wages and thats all he ever wanted, cut your losses and try and get rid of this blight on the club..

6.) 26 Apr 2019 15:55:30
I would have him stand outside Old Trafford on match days and charge fans £5 to have a signed polaroid with him to recoup some of the money they wasted on him.

7.) 26 Apr 2019 18:12:22
That’s why I said make Sanchez the striker and the main man. This is how he thrives and is a proven threat. Never had the chance in the right position - we bought him for the sake of it without a proper plan. Couldn’t care less if he is loner and doesn’t fancy going out boozing with other players. I don’t socialise with my work colleagues as would rather spend my free time with my family and real friends yet I operate very effectively at work!

8.) 26 Apr 2019 18:48:37
Sanchez has been dreadful pretty much 100% of the time and I think a lot of the issue is in his head, for whatever reason. City swerved one there and we left with a very expensive player who has contributed very little so far. In the game he was injured the rest of the team pretty much ignored him prostrate on the floor and carried on playing. I think that says a lot.

{Ed025's Note - it really does AJH..

9.) 26 Apr 2019 22:10:33
He's grown a nice little semi-goatee, which I'm happy about.

10.) 27 Apr 2019 05:59:18
Is it me or do our players not pass to him either?



17 Mar 2019 10:22:45
Wonder what odds you'd get for De Gea moving to Madrid and Courtois coming the other way?


{Ed002's Note - Courtois won't be heading to Manchester United.}

1.) 17 Mar 2019 14:10:06
So, very good odds then?



16 Mar 2019 23:47:21
We were awful tonight. No other agenda to the post, just stating the obvious.

Surely moving to Barcelona could cause de Ligt the same issues Ed as they are a huge club?


{Ed002's Note - No, they manage players well. Else they will move them on if they don’t work out.}

Ed has said there is an issue to be relived first before Barcelona sign him. that issue could be anything. Money, personal reasons, agents, playing time guarantees etc.

If true, and a massive IF, would be a sensational purchase.

Heinze, Rafael, Tevez all did very well for us.

Veron was ok but hard to dislodge Keane and Scholes.

I know Ed - very tongue in cheek. I’d rather good quality young lads any day with a sprinkling of experience in there than overpaid “stars”.


{Ed001's Note - that is always what I think of as the United way too.}

I’d take Meunier and let him play alongside and help develop Dalot who was our brand new shiny teenager last summer for £20m and teach him the game.

He looked great under LVG. Never kicked on - but then again, never been given the chance - guess he’ll be off.

All ridiculous posts. Just leave it be and see what OGS can do with this lot under a full ore-season and adding players he wants to this average squad.

Unfortunately in this day and age of instant gratification, OGS has no chance. “Fans” have decided already and he is a few poor results away from another revolt. Pretty sad times.
