I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.




14 Jul 2017 14:22:01
Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?


{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:23:36
Cheers ed.



02 May 2017 06:54:58
Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying £155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With £155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

14.) 03 May 2017 04:23:15
That's why you're Bond. You're absolutely right. 😂😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - A match made in Xenu.}



01 Jul 2016 15:23:25
Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}

1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.

6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.

7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}

8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.

9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?

10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?

12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.

14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.

15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.

16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and £80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.

17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

ED 002 u crack me up! :D.



09 Jun 2016 13:22:03
I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest leahy he had a very poor season for us, it was in stark contrast to the season before when he was arguably our best player, there was talk then of united being interested and after that his form took a terrible dip, that leads me to think that he would be open to a move and especially if it were one of the biggest names like utd, but with moshiri and now koeman at the helm i would think they would try and persuade him to stay mate..

1.) 09 Jun 2016 20:46:18
Cheers ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 09 Jun 2016 22:01:25
Has Koeman been appointed yet?

3.) 10 Jun 2016 00:03:29
African, which team do you support?
You seem to pop up every now and then out of the blue.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 23:13:45
Ed025 if your about, do you think ye will be a force to reckon with next year, with a new manager and some money to spend ed,
I was surprised to see Gibson getting a new contract.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think we would be competitive leahy and be in and around the top 6, its exciting times at goodison with the introduction of moshiri who has big plans for the club and for the first time in a long while lack of money cannot be an excuse. darron getting a 2yr contract shocked me to be honest mate, not just because of his terrible injury record but because of his off-field antics..

Some of the comments liverpool fans are saying about Loris are unbelievable and they call us toxic.
I said it all season he was dodgy, but on a human side you have to feel for him, where was his team mates and boss after the whistle and the Madrid players came to him first, and they tell us Liverpool are a close team with great spirit. Bull.
And don't get me started on grown men crying on a football pitch.
And no wonder Salah shoulder went it had to at some stage carrying that team all year.

Leahy You Never Walk Alone, unless you screwup in a CL Final, then you are on your own.

2.) 27 May 2018 11:46:38
Some of those tweets are disgusting action needs to be taken not just deleting accounts . #scum.

3.) 27 May 2018 12:59:30
To be fair, there are idiots everywhere who either are not mature enough to take results that don’t go their way or are pure nutters who want to lash out regardless. Social media just gives them a platform to do so without any filters and that’s the problem. Our own fans abuse the manager and players when something happens so do loads of other fans. Remember city fans booing pep at one point. Seems to be more prevalent in the top tier though.

4.) 27 May 2018 13:13:42
There's a difference between critisizing and insulting. Unfortunately, some idiots went overboard and started insulting karius. It happens toi often unfortunayely.

5.) 27 May 2018 15:35:07
Not even Karius' own team-mates went up to him at the final whistle 'You never walk alone'

6.) 27 May 2018 17:48:41
He single handedly lost them the game. I'm not surprised at the reaction. United fans have no place to be critical of anyone.

7.) 27 May 2018 18:47:52
Shaw there's a difference between critical, then there's insulting and threats.
Then look at the game, liverpool score from Milner floating in a corner, lovern wins the header mane knocks it in, Milner an experienced player then takes 3 or 4 more corners with pace on them where the keeper pushes them away. My question would be to Milner why didn't you float the next few corners in to the edge of the box again.

8.) 27 May 2018 21:58:40
Karius showed huge character at end of game. Klopp put him in that position by selecting him despite concerns over ability. Nobody could say they were surprised. Klopp should have been by Karius’ side when he was apologising to fans in tears after whistle as Klopp more to blame. I had far more sympathy for Karius than Salah.

In ‘99 Roy Keane was sent off in FA Cup semi, injured in Cup Final and suspended from CL final having put in heroic performance against Juventus. Not one tear. Salah doesn’t appear to wish his teammates well, encourage them or show any character. I’m no doubt in minority but felt he was quite self-indulgent. Strange game football. I also truly believe Jose would have comforted Kariys were he in Klopp’s position.



25 May 2018 09:56:42
I was just looking through the players we are signing. I've counted 16 so far, not going to name them now.
Just goes to show the waffle that's out there,
I'm just going to sit back and wait and not read that rubbish a anymore,
Them rags and social media are pure rubbish guess work.
If edo2 does something is all I'm going to read otherwise I'll wait till I see a player sign the dotted line.


1.) 25 May 2018 12:25:09
Gaitan is on a plane as we speak, sat next to Schneider.

2.) 25 May 2018 12:32:52
Exactly, mate. People have no patience anymore in a society that is always demanding more info in as short a space of time as possible. People need to chill a bit and just enjoy it if it happens.

5.) 25 May 2018 14:04:40
I still hope Paulo Di Canio arrives.



20 May 2018 00:28:03
I watched the game again,
We all know Jose likes big strong players.
That little kante is as good a player that's in the premiership.
I would go all out for him if I had anything to do with man United transfers.




19 May 2018 23:11:23
Our back 4 was in a fergie side
Surely it's time to move on from that.
It's that bad back there we have to sit 2 midfielders
That's half our problem right there.


1.) 20 May 2018 00:44:29
Spot on Leahy. They are too clumsy and ww can't be relying on them to win us titles.

We need to be ruthless there is no need for emotions i also believe players like Pogba needs to wake up or move on.

Rashford isn't ready and Lukaku is the only striker we have . We need to buy a striker as well unless Martial is staying and he will be playing as a forward next year which doesn't look likely.

There are huge problems in the team and it isn't going to fix over night.

We need to start thinking with our brains and not our hearts. Mourinho has been patient with a lot of players it is time we see the old Mourinho back and let him be ruthless.

If it doesn't work out next year then we will. know it wasnt the players it was the manager.

2.) 20 May 2018 02:49:54
You would think Jones and smalling would have learnt a lot from the likes of Rio and vidic.

2 of the best if not the best defenders of there generation.

The only player that should be guaranteed to play if fit every game is Bailly.

Young and Valencia have done good but our defence is not a defence that is going to win titles and European cups.

3.) 20 May 2018 05:52:17
Liverpool fan coming in peace.

It's your manager who is the problem not all your players.

Mourinho is far to negative with his tactics which hampers your attacking players.

Pogba always looks better playing further forward and Sanchez looks like he hasn't played football for 10 years.

You need a manager who is going to play attacking football, and until you get that I don't see you challenging for any proper trophies.



17 May 2018 21:52:24
With our boy Carrick gone who gets the arm band.
I'm not one for a captain in goal cause I think the captain needs to be around the pitch getting other players going but since we have to many sheep on the field I'd give it straight to de gea.


1.) 17 May 2018 22:38:06
Agreed Leahy. Not really spoilt for choice in the captaincy department. Other options are Lukaku or Herrera for me. A i always like my cbs to be captain personally. Position which is perfect for barking orders. Bailly if he ever gets a game. A left field choice would be lindelof but isn’t going to happen. If Alderweireld comes in he would be a candidate for me.

2.) 17 May 2018 23:01:40
Thanks park
I give you the award of being my new friend.

3.) 17 May 2018 23:39:01
He wouldn't be my first choice but don't overlook the possibility that matic might get it. He plays every game and seems to be jose's man. Pogba if he grows up, he would either sink or swim.
Toni or smalling if they are going to be starters again next season would get it on seniority.
I agree i'm not a fan of keeper captains but ddg would wear the arm band with pride i'm sure and is certainly worthy.

There seems to be a lot less of the Keane Terry Gerard Vieira type captains around now. The game has changed so much I think Keane would have half our players in tears if he rollicked them like he did Becks Neville butt cole Yorke and co. Could you imagine how the likes of sanchez martial or pogba or shaw would react.

I grew up in an era when the captain was the figure head of the club the team and represented the supporters.

I suppose that still is the case at some clubs but its been a long time since our captain has been a truly inspirational figure at the top of his game making sure everybody is on top of theirs.
What I would give to throw 3 players into or squad like Keane Rio and Neville to uphold standards.

4.) 18 May 2018 06:45:46
Would the added responsibility for Pogba mature and improve him?

5.) 18 May 2018 06:50:04
I think it is very telling that we are struggling to identify a captain. Sure, the captain role is not what it is in cricket but when I played they were a strong voice on the pitch, made everyone stick together and told you what was needed, got that extra bit out of you. We lack character and leadership on the pitch and have for a while, it is no good having a captain who can’t communicate in English to the other players, totally wasted armband. The thing is here that someone like Lingard at 25/ 26 should be a candidate but instead he continues with daft poses and doesn’t look like he has matured in his life, people still think he is young.

We could look at Phil Jones but is he a leader, looks quiet when not injured. Don’t mention Smalling. If Herrera held a position then maybe, he gets it, he gets the club as well but doesn’t hold down a place enough and his contract situation doesn’t bode well.

Until sorted it seems like mix and match until the right character comes along, we must think of character in our buys this summer.

6.) 18 May 2018 08:41:07
No way Pogba should have it, done nothing to deserve it, DDG is the stand out choice for me, other than that we are seriously lacking and like above says Matic is prob the most trusted outfield player to take it.

7.) 18 May 2018 09:34:49
I think Lukaku has been the stand out player this year and in his first season i feel he gets the club as much, if not more than any other player. He is vocal, he works his ass of every game and he don't care if he assists or scores the goals.
Captain type if you ask me.

8.) 18 May 2018 12:38:16
Id prefer a centre back or centre midfielder. Strikers should only be focusing on scoring. Its worrying that there's a lack. We had this conversation last year and here we are again. Carrick wasn't the most vocal player and had it on seniority. Now we lack even a senior player who stands out. Of course Fellaini could sign a new deal and take the armband.

9.) 18 May 2018 14:25:30
Upholding standards? Like missing drugs tests? 😉.

10.) 18 May 2018 14:48:03
Pogba should be given the chance as capt. It might just spark the lad into performing like he is playing Citie away every game. 😆😆.

That's right red man he can use both feet,
I often think what age is too young,
Surely at 18 your a man and should be bought in and around the first team, a lot of people say that's too young.
But look at what Hansen said you win nothing with kids.
Then look at Ryan giggs at 17 running through experienced players like they weren't there.
Have to give them a chance to see how they will cope.

With McKenna coming to the first team, surely we will bring 2 players on from the under 18s.
Another player that looks good is Greenwood though he is only 16 or 17 is supposed to be the best young player around the academy.
