Ferguson spotted in Mayfair leaving a restaurant with Pochettino and his head coach Perez allegedly after having lunch. Have seen the photograph, it looks real!
Anything in this or is it just another manager that Fergie is friends with!
Interested to know Eds and other fans opinion.

Can mean nothing really as there can be something on personal ground.

Hopefully it went like this:

SAF: So you sell us Alli and Kane and we'll sign you up for 2017/ 18 yes?

Poch: Only if you get me the lad Dembele from Rennes along with Barkley and Stones. Plus £100m to buy as I please.

SAF: Ok son, you got a deal

Poch: I'm in.

Jaap Stam at 46 years of age is still better than our current CB's!
Bodies just bouncing off him everywhere. Great positional play and strong in the tackle. Still the best CB I have ever seen at Utd.

Stan vidic or stam Rio🤔🤔🤔.


2.) 26 May 2019 23:11:39
Great player hoggy.


3.) 26 May 2019 23:16:19
Totally agree Hoggy. An utter beast of a centre half.

Phelan confirmed as Assistant Manager.
Just worried about our style of play going forward. Hope Ole is strong and in charge.

So who will now be the DoF, Technical or Sporting Director?

1.) 10 May 2019 10:22:39
Ole isn’t strong. Phelan is getting a stranglehold over our style, as the Eds have alluded to. Now we just have to wait until Rio is appointed DOF, and we’ll have the full house.


2.) 10 May 2019 11:01:10
Just hope we are wrong but fear we are not.


3.) 10 May 2019 11:10:50
Not the best news, I thought we looked far more exciting before Phelan got his feet back under the table. Carrick and McKenna I think were enough. But let's wait and see.

Thank goodness for that!

Looks like Carrick is the caretaker boss until the end of the season.

1.) 18 Dec 2018 10:04:38
Nope. Big Sam or Harry 😂.


2.) 18 Dec 2018 10:09:47
Big Sam on his until end of the season 😅😅.

I understand we have the odd injury and suspension but judging by the amount of variation in the Utd team selection from match to match, I wonder how he is picking the team at present!

Does he have a tombola in his office!

Hi Ed, was wondering if there was any development at Utd with the appointment of a DoF.
It hasn't been mentioned for a couple of weeks and last time I read about it there were a couple of candidates.
Apologies if I have missed a recent post.

{Ed002's Note - No, there has been no recent change I am aware of Hogg.}

The differences between Palace and Utd on the AWB deal appear mainly to be around the initial payment and then the basis of the staged payments.
It doesn’t sound like a deal can’t be done, Utd need to offer more up front plus change the details around the performance based payments. At the end of the day £50 to 60M for AWB is reasonable on the basis he is 21 and proven in the PL. In 5 years time if he is still at the club this would look like good business.

Rock the red, Utd regularly pay a premium for good players so that is nothing new, it’s been the case for years.
The scouting and recruitment side needs to be so that Utd buy young players who are on the cusp of making it that we then develop into what we need.

Cinderella, Pogba is a World Cup winner and the top clubs in Europe ie Real Madrid and Juventus want to acquire his services. So he is worth every bit of the £90M and probably a bit more.

We can only hope and pray!

I still expect him to be at OT next season.

Now being reported that Utd are not interested in the player.

He has played on both wings and is right footed.

So if we need someone on the RW James will play that role. He also tracks back properly, something that Martial often lacks.

Not a polished product but a player to progress further under the right coaching and management.

Why should we help Real Madrid with expensive players that they don’t want.

We have one of those ourselves that we are struggling to move on.

This would be a short term expensive fix, if he was to stay fit.

Younger players please! Who have ability, hunger and desire to make it.

I think Barcelona like the big gold chain with “Rashy” on it whereas most of us think that is a bit cheap! 😂

On a serious note we need to keep him for one or two more seasons before we pass judgement.

Good shout Shappy!

Jordi Cruyff has been a Sporting Director for 7 years albeit at smaller clubs.

Like you say he fits the profile of using an ex player in a role and he was around at Utd when Ole was a player.

We all know that Woodward knows zero about football. That’s been the case since day one.

He has also known that appointing a DoF/ Technical Director was needed since just before LVG was sacked, but then Jose was appointed which made moving forward with this difficult.

Changes have been implemented to the youth and scouting systems but the full extent of changes would never be complete until the DoF/ Technical Director is in place.

It is a shame that we got carried away and appointed Ole on a permanent basis before this role. If we had the DoF in place first and then they agreed with the Ole appointment then I would be much more content.

I thought Phelan was going to be the DoF/ TD but thankfully No he is not, then there were rumours of Ferdinand or Fletcher being interviewed for this position but this perhaps appears to be more about providing an independent group to discuss player recruitment etc.

Thus it could still be possible that Woodward appoints a credible DoF/ TD and then maybe things might start to be undertaken in the right way.

Not defending Woodward just trying to have an open mind until we get to the start of the season.
