I think it's crucial that we get off to a hot start next season from our current squad there are quite a few that will have no world cup at all which is good. But we also have quite a few that should go fairly deep in the tournament.
Let's hope all or players come back injury free.
Pre season gets messed up with players coming back at different times. Let's hope they all come back injury free.


1.) 03 May 2018 09:24:28
Let's also hope that the club prioritise being prepared for the big season ahead - not short term profit making taking up the focus with the manager/ players having to work around a commercial schedule. Pipe dream I know, but these things can be the difference maker in a highly competitive league.

I appreciate our rivals will also be on the commercial hunt, but stepping out of the pack could pay bigger dividends and give us a slight advantage, which we will probably need given how lethargic we have looked for 6+ years.

2.) 03 May 2018 17:33:01
Haven't posted in a while.

Lets hope we start to see more structure and organisation in the club ie boardroom, backroom staff. Still feel we still getting over a "hangover" since Sir Alex retired, in terms of we have declined and teams have caught up.

Feel like we have become dated in our approach. Still wondering why we haven't got a Director of Football at the club, unless Jose wants full control of the transfer within the club.

Our approach now until the beginning of next season will set the tone. Fans will be expecting us to compete and play more consistent. I feel like we are very inconsistent in terms of how the team plays. Manchester City have set a high standard. We must raise our game aswell or they will dominating the league as long Pep is their.

3.) 03 May 2018 18:54:56
Good post shane. The bar has been raised we must accept, meet, and overcome the challenge. In every aspect. We need a few good additions i'd like to see someone step up and become our leader on the pitch.

4.) 03 May 2018 19:17:03
If the bar had been raised then sterling would be the leagues top goal scorer.

5.) 03 May 2018 20:09:33
I agree. Valencia even though he been a great player for us throughout the years. He doesn't come off as a leader type. I know they generally give it to the player who has served the club the longest.

Personally we missing a Roy Keane character player even though their only probably a hand full of those types left. Daniele De Rossi comes to my mind.

Pogba is suppose to be a future captain. Is that because he a natural leader or because he is the biggest name at the club. He gets compared to Vieria a lot, but at this moment I don't see the sort of leadership (that Vieria had) in Pogba.

This is a example of what is needed in Pogba for example to truly become a great. If he wants to get better. Then it is the little things like this that will determine if he becomes a player that either fulfill this world class potential or be doesn't reach his full potential.

6.) 03 May 2018 23:19:04
Ken, we need a hot start, was that a typo? Did you mean head start? That’s what we need.

7.) 04 May 2018 10:40:07
Stand😁😁 it would be nice.



16 Feb 2018 15:31:49
Hi eds, is there any truth in the reports from turkey yesterday that fellaini has agreed a deal with fenerbece and signed a pre contract?


{Ed002's Note - I obviously have no idea about any reports in Turkey. I have explained for some months been explaining the situation and discussions that have been going on with Besiktas. If he has agreec a pre-contract with Fenerbahce I am afraid I am not the one to ask. I can't answer any questions about "what do you think of reports ..." Ken.}

1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:35:33
It was Besiktas, today he has been linked to Galatasaray. We will see.

Ed002 has been saying long ago Fellaini wanted out last Summer, and it was Mou who intervened.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 16:17:14
The reports were Besiktas.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense then. It is where I expect him to go.}

3.) 16 Feb 2018 16:19:32
Sorry ed my bad. i should have worded that differently.
Its obviously a false report.
Jose is obviously keen for him to stay but perhaps more regular game time is what he is after at this stage of his career.

4.) 17 Feb 2018 11:22:21
He needs to go. If he wants regular game time he has to go. If he stats he's just a bit part player and plan b. Frankly given the wages and his age its better he goes.



17 Jan 2018 22:35:52
Ed is there anybody interested in signing blind this window?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to MU.}

1.) 18 Jan 2018 09:34:53
I didn't see that coming. Lol.



12 Jan 2018 23:35:13
If any of The eds are around,
Do you know if this is a completely optimistic attempt or has sanchez always been a target.? There has been no serious links with him since his days In italy.


{Ed002's Note - it is simply a case of him being seen as a potential option.}

1.) 13 Jan 2018 08:07:10
Of course he is an option. He would have been looked at by all major clubs, the same as Ozil, because how many times does a player in his prime in the elite category of his role become available for such deflated cost or potentially for free.

Real, Bayern, Juve and co would also have discussed Alexis but maybe have decided to step back or not register offical interest for whatever reasons. He is a world class player, doesn’t make many stupid media appearances, doesn’t dab, doesn’t get injured too frequently and is passionate about the game.

If ever there was a player to sign it is Sanchez.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 00:07:36
Thanks ed. Personally I feel its still a long shot as his mind was probably set on a city move for months now. Perhaps what we can offer is better for arsenal so if his heart is set on city he will sit tight until June.
Perhaps we can sell him our club and the opportunity to achieve legendary status by helping us become champions again. Oh and pay him more😂.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 02:00:54
Hi Ed, is he seen as a potential option to Greizman with him seemingly off to Barcelona?

{Ed002's Note - I would not try to complicate matters.}

4.) 13 Jan 2018 09:53:06
Over the last three seasons Pogba and Sanchez have both spent 3 months on the sidelines injured, and am I'm not sure the Arsenal fans would agree with you regarding stupid media appearances. But cut lips and a slight sniffle aside you are right Maze, Sanchez doesn't dab, he sulks because he didn't get his move in the summer and causes well documented dress room bust ups.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 10:15:49
No doubting Sanchez ability, but if rumours/ reports are correct with his replacement at Arsenal being Malcolm, would like a punt on him instead: cheaper wages by far, longer service, right winger as opposed to AS and hopefully less disruptive. I think he could be a better long term fit and not hinder martial/ rashfords progress.

{Ed002's Note - Malcom would be a Walcott replacement, not a Sanchez replacement.}

6.) 13 Jan 2018 11:22:40
Malcolm looks a talent Cookyman but I disagree as we do not need another player with 'potential' seeing as though we have martial, rashford, lingard and even andreas pereira on our books who are young players with 'potential'. We need a finished article who performs consistently at the top level. We have far too many young inconsistent players and when they are all having an off day we have nobody who can step up and take the game by the scruff of its neck. Sanchez is perfect for us and personally I think we are a better fit for him than city. He will be the main man and be one of the first names on the team sheet. And if he gets the number 7 shirt, then he will be one of the most marketable players in the world. Personally, think he is city bound but it is very quiet from his end, city's end and our end. Seems everyone has their poker faces on.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 11:40:29
I hope the line "Perhaps we can sell him our club", Ken was a joke?

8.) 13 Jan 2018 12:08:06
Why fzz its not the only show in town?

9.) 13 Jan 2018 13:20:19
Ken this is not like little school girls trying to sell brownies to raise funds for field trips. This is Manchester United one of the most recognised sporting institutions in the world.

What is exactly are United trying to sell him? They offer what they can and what they believe is reasonable, that is all. There is nothing to sell, you have watched too many episodes of only fools and horses, Maze suggests maybe it is time to try a different show?

10.) 13 Jan 2018 13:32:48
I shouldn't need to answer mate.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 14:37:09
Park - totally understand the potential reason you state but do we need a player whose heart isn't in it : another di Maria? I don't think so but we've still got 18 days left. lol

Ed002- sorry when I stated replacement, I was referring to a shiny new player to appease the fans as opposed to playing position:)

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal are looking to someone else to replace Sanchez.}

12.) 13 Jan 2018 14:38:57
Maybe how we plan on dominating the EPL again at some point, and convince him he can fulfil his ambition of winning the league here? We have finished top 4 once in 4 seasons!

13.) 13 Jan 2018 15:33:01
Would it be lemar?

14.) 13 Jan 2018 19:18:24
Correct stand. Players if his calibre gave options of lots of clubs with great history and tradition as well as the ' new money ' clubs like city and psg who are attracting some of the world's best. So yes we do need to convice him we are a better option than any of the other great options available. Its not all about offer him what you can financially or he would be off to China.



10 Jan 2018 21:28:14
Looks like Dimitri Mitchell is going on loan to hearts. Best of luck to him.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 22:07:03
Looks a good player, hope he comes back and gets a chance, good luck to the lad.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 23:10:25
Why on earth to a third rate league? Really don't get that at all. Would be better off in the championship.

{Ed007's Note -


3.) 11 Jan 2018 06:23:48
Good move. I’d rather see more players go to Scotland than the Championship. The Scottish league is underrated for teaching kids maturity and giving them physical and mental toughness.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 13:58:50
A whole lot better than u23 that's for sure.

Okay Gentlemen, We have news on the Matt Hawker Cup 2019.

So far, what do we know?  
The date will be the 15th of June
And held in Oxfordshire-ish again.  

After speaking to all 24 players, they have all told me they would like to play again next year, and due to their monumental effort how can anyone say no?  

After seeing the wonderful words and backing on the site, it is clear a lot more people want to join in for 2019, so we have decided to increase squad sizes from 12 to 14, allowing us to have 4 new players.  

Quite frankly there is no easy way to choose, so from as of right now we are running a competition.  

It is one question you have to answer, by midnight, Friday the 22nd of June.  

How many in TOTAL, goals will be scored at the world cup 2018. So yes this includes all goals previous to today, so time to do some homework ;)  

The closest 4 will be added into the Matt Hawker cup, the next 4 after that will be placed on the reserve list. It is an honour to Matt and the website that so many people want to get involved and for that i am extremely grateful.  

For any ties in the final standings, it will work on closest guess then move down to who submitted their guess first, so you may want to wait till friday after a few more goals, but is it worth the risk?!  

Please email me on benjaminallen1991@hotmail. co . uk, your username if you have one, contact email address and your guess.  

Best of luck!

Great mentos add there. He spat on my daughter, but it was all good because mentos is the fresh maker.

Anyhow, i'm happy that I can think of you as Ken the Dub who looks like Carragher.

9.) 20 Jun 2018 20:46:11
Hahahha Ken, you smashed it.



14 Jun 2018 21:11:01
Greizman stays at AM.
I think he is a great player but he is a bit of an arse really.
2 summers in a row he has courted publicity. Well done to AM to hold onto one of their most influential players. can't think Barcelona will be too happy.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 21:47:24
Good player ken but do we want someone who holds press conferences to announce a non transfer. Imagine calling a work meeting to tell everyone that you were there.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 21:49:37
Completely agree ken, his ego far exceeds his talent. Good luck in the game.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 21:58:48

It wasn't a press conference was a 30 minute documentary lol he made 2 and told them which one to play.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 23:18:11
Cheers ajh. Its a case of hope to survive😂.



13 Jun 2018 08:28:23
Jose pep and klopp all go into next season without their trusted no2's / assistants.
Who Will fare better?
Will we notice any difference.
I think we might have most to gain and the least to lose seeing as our play was the poorest from the 3 teams. Any change to our coaching style can only be a positive surely.


1.) 13 Jun 2018 09:39:11
Interesting point ken, didn’t realise pep had lost an assistant as well. I agree think we have the most to gain. Some fresh thinking and ideas to jose’s Team, which has consisted of his trusted, close knit group for many years, should provide some positive results. I think Klopp will struggle the most without buvac. Apparently he was the ‘brains’ of the operation. Interesting to see how this plays out.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 10:32:13
Yeh Domenec Torrent has gone to manage in the US. It will be interesting to see how each loss effects the day to day running of the team.



13 Jun 2018 07:52:36
Looks like sandro and rose are not of interest to anymore.
Is shaw going to get another chance i wonder?
Or has jose got another wild card like Dalot on his radar for the left?


1.) 13 Jun 2018 08:18:48
Jose has said he sees ashley young playing 50+ games next season. Most likely him and valencia will be first choice full backs.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 09:08:08
Would be embarrassing if so, we need better across the defence if we are to seriously challenge. I would be happy if Shaw was given a full season (and could stay fit) I think he’s got all the attributes.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 09:23:28

Embarrassing or just not your preferred choice? Young had a great season and got himself into the England squad, always gives 100%. I agree we need better but it isn't embarrassing to have an England left back at left back.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 09:37:38
Luke Shaw should be the embarrassed one that he can't shift a winger turned full back out of the team.

Credit to young he's been top.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 09:42:29
Cannot be going into the season with young and Valencia as full backs. Jose will have had 5 windows to sort these positions out so it is inexcusable if they are not addressed. I think we are in for a left back but we are just biding our time with Sandro. He still hasn’t signed a new deal and there seems to be nobody else in for him. Perhaps looking to reduce the asking price. Apparently Juve never seek a big ‘star’ player before season tickets close. Did the same with pogba when they sold him to us. I expect young to be back up to a new signing.

6.) 13 Jun 2018 10:14:02
I just hope that if we don't sign any lb or cb, jose fanboys don't point to young Smalling and Jones to show how hamstrung their Messiah is.

7.) 13 Jun 2018 10:24:16
The Jose ‘fanboys’ will not do such a thing csm. If he doesn’t address these areas then he will be held accountable for it. Simple.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 10:33:26
So Jose has come out and said how well young has played and that he will be an important part again next year .
Maybe the truth is Jose rates him and that's why he plays him week in week out, even if many fans think he shouldn't?

9.) 13 Jun 2018 10:34:38
Personally i'm not a fan of a fullback being touted as able to play on the left or right especially at such a young age as Dalot - should be making his name in one position (right back) to build up an understanding with the rest of the back 4 and hopefully develop an understanding with the right winger . if we ever get one.

10.) 13 Jun 2018 10:53:34
Jred maybe he rates young. But if he persists with him at left back then he will be looking at the sack by Christmas. I wouldn’t believe the media tbh. Ed002 has said we are looking at a left back so let’s just wait and see what happens.

11.) 13 Jun 2018 12:04:11
Correct me if I am wrong but did not rojo play left back for Argentina in a world cup final? Good enough for Argentina should make him good enough for us.

12.) 13 Jun 2018 12:49:48
Rumours continue of the guy from Augsburg.

Rojo isn't good enough at left back.

13.) 13 Jun 2018 13:43:09
Alla, have you seen Rojo play left back?

14.) 13 Jun 2018 13:54:20
Club have just give rojo a new contract some one must rate him.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 13:58:15
Rojo is 4th choice lb behind young blind and shaw. So that is an indication of his capabilities at lb. He is awful there imo.

16.) 13 Jun 2018 14:21:11
Allan, my abiding memory of Rojo in WC final was being inside his own area on the left, turning back to play it back to the keeper, seeing a forward lurking, changing his mind . then going forward 6 feet, turning back and playing a blind pass all the way across his area to the right back who was forced into putting it behind for a corner because of the lurking forward closing him down that Rojo had forgotten about 5 seconds earlier.

Never a top 4 team defender.3 good games in 10.

17.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:01
Park I would love for that to happen but every mourinho defense post has a mention of our defense while completely ignoring the fact that he keeps starting Jones and Smalling over 2 cb's he bought. So I will believe it when i see it.

18.) 13 Jun 2018 15:48:46
And that’s being generous lol. He makes smalling look comfortable on the ball take the hoof away from Rojo and it leaves him with nothing.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 16:41:37
Maybe he got a contract to we get a half decent fee.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 16:53:38
Allan that is questionable logic. You are basically saying any international player should get into our team when the fact is that the top club teams are far better than any international team. Argentina are average without Messi and Rojo isn't anywhere near the standard we require.

21.) 13 Jun 2018 17:28:10
So we have committed millions of pounds over the next 5 year to pay rojo so that we can sell him .
And don't forget pay his contract up if he doesn't ask for a move .
As well as run the risk of the player just stay and taking a place up in the squad?
Or maybe a team give a player a contract because they want him regardless if so of the fans rate him.

Hi ed002. Are there any clubs showing interest in pogba.
I would imagine the financials are huge and it would represent a huge cost to united to sell him on now. I can't imagine a lot of clubs can afford the deal unless he takes a significant drop in his demands.


{Ed002's Note - No I don't think so. He has been offered to the other sides who showed an interest previously but neither see the value in him.}

14 Jun 2018 08:40:47
If he doesn't want to play for the club then get him out the door asap. He might have all the talent in the world but he will never realise that talent if he doesn't want to be here.
I don't see a host of clubs liking up to sign him. Dortmunt would be a great move for him. They are a selling club so if he does realize his potential they will flip him on for a profit within 2 years.
