Hi ed002.
You said that pogba and martial will obviously stay if we can't do deals for them.
Should any club move for them at this late stage are the club in a position to replace them with incoming players at this point?
So isuppose i'm asking is there a couple of deals for potential incoming players dependent on the sale of pogba and martial. I would imagine any player or club that we are looking to do deals with would be less keen to sell later in the window.


{Ed002's Note - Yes. The transfer window is still open Ken. The club has targets, as you know.}



01 Aug 2018 08:48:30
Hi ed002. Is there any truth in the stories circulating with regard to smalling moving to wolves potentially and is there interest from everton in rojo?
I know you said that we would make these players available for transfer but that the club were finding it difficult to sell them.
Finally is any club showing interest in shaw?
Jose has played hin in a 5 at the back this pre season but seems to have avoided playing him in a straight Back n 4.


{Ed002's Note - Obviously both are available - Smalling should end up at Wolves, Rojo I don't know.}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 11:35:24
Thank you.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:10:41
Music to my ears Ed.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 14:08:28
The interest from Wolves in Smalling is genuine then Ed02? The reporters with supposed close ties to Wolves are saying there's nothing in it.

{Ed002's Note - What did I just type? Were you banged on the head repeatedly as a child?}

4.) 01 Aug 2018 14:15:48
The only thing I've repeatedly banged is your mother.

{Ed002's Note - Interesting, she has been dead for a number of years.}

5.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:12
Panne go play somewhere else prat.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:28
Don’t go ruining it for all of us panne. Can’t get this information anywhere else but this site. Muppet.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:27:02
no need for that type of remark -.

8.) 01 Aug 2018 14:53:19
that's one less person on this site for a while.

Thanks for the update Ed02. As usual this is great info that without you and the other ed's we would not be privy to.

so thanks.

9.) 01 Aug 2018 15:19:51
No wonder the eds get p***ed of with stupid comments like that!

10.) 01 Aug 2018 15:58:06
Lads give him a break, he WAS banged on the head repeatedly as a child after all.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:32
Id bang his head if I had the chance. Prat.

12.) 01 Aug 2018 17:11:24
Good news Smalling is leaving. Some on here will be upset as they think Smalling plays like Maldini.

13.) 01 Aug 2018 17:40:42
Like maldini 😂😂.

14.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:04
I read this site multiple times every day but never post. However I just had to on this occasion just to say what an person.

I know ed002 can be a little dry at times (and I understand why) but that's not acceptable.
But, I must say that is probably the best put down response from ed that I have ever seen 😆.

15.) 01 Aug 2018 19:28:13
Smalling going finally. Never been at the level required, nor is Rojo. Just hope Jose has an ace up his sleeve. Preferably one named Toby.

Also truly hope it means we see the best of Bailly and Lindelof this season.

Looks like we are going into the season with the same full backs which is interesting, and maybe one more addition for the right forward?

Looks like Martial is coming to a head too - I’ve never said anything else but good riddance to him also. Silky bad apple. Can’t be doing with it. We have one of them already and that’s enough in Jose 😂.

16.) 01 Aug 2018 19:33:06
I will be very surprised if smalling leaves this summer.

17.) 01 Aug 2018 19:43:24
I think smalling is much better than Jones and rojo lol.

18.) 01 Aug 2018 19:57:16
Welcome karllap.

19.) 01 Aug 2018 23:31:17
Jred SSN saying he has agreed terms. Could be happening.

20.) 02 Aug 2018 00:14:50
Eric79 you were saying what about Martial?

21.) 01 Aug 2018 23:37:36
Not from what I was told and I know the family .
But they are maybe not telling me the truth?

22.) 02 Aug 2018 09:21:46
Just to add to the weight of what everyone has said above backing 002, this page is so much better with you around.

I can see why the Eds get annoyed with some sets of fans but it's a minority and they don't speak for the whole.

23.) 02 Aug 2018 09:23:46
Any truth in the Smalling rumours? Anyone?

24.) 02 Aug 2018 10:00:58
Smalling to Wolves was just a rumour, Wolves journalist's are saying both Mike and Rojo rumours are wide of the mark, but they are looking at the CB position.



22 Jul 2018 14:59:43
Any info on this youngster for Rochdale we are chasing Daniel Adshead. Meant to babe Benn very impressive during a trial game.
I love these types of signings as the me fill me with hope.


{Ed033's Note - Babe Benn fills you with what?

1.) 22 Jul 2018 16:01:59
#meant to have been# betty impressive. bloody samsung😂.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 17:34:17
Betty who?

3.) 22 Jul 2018 19:39:29
Oooooooo Betty!

4.) 22 Jul 2018 22:02:44
Easy typo for ken, he calls Benny Baller "babe" all the time in the WhatsApp group. Lol.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 13:39:32
Have turns to babe . Very turns to betty. I wonder if shaw turns into useless😂.



02 May 2018 22:27:26
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.

Is pogba out with a virus for Wednesday🤔.


1.) 03 Dec 2018 13:03:27
Ya a virus that he can't pass, on. 😚.

2.) 03 Dec 2018 18:09:33
This virus is a strange one, as it only occurs for a short period, when he loses the ball on a football pitch. It makes him feel like his feet are stuck to the floor. He has to look up to the sky or fall down on the floor, to relieve the pain. He literally cannot move his legs to run another inch for about ten seconds after losing the ball.

3.) 03 Dec 2018 22:44:54
Can't pass anything on, including a football.



27 Nov 2018 18:00:40
Big game tonight. A win should see id's through in all likelihood.
Im expecting to see 4 or 5 changes from sat.
I think shaw fred sanchez and either bailly or jones to come in for lindelof darmian lukaku matic we might see rash or mata start. i'd like to see dalot if fit for young also.


1.) 27 Nov 2018 18:55:01
Hope your right about the changes, although I struggle to see Jose dropping Matic.

The way we are playing at present is so bad that I almost don’t care about results. More important to me is that Utd play a more attacking style where we are on the front foot and are getting at teams.

2.) 27 Nov 2018 20:05:06
Matic could murder a puppy, and Jose would still pick him.

Playing against one of the weakest teams in the entire competition, and the attacking strategy is to lump it up to Fellaini. Jose is looking for a Christmas holiday.

3.) 27 Nov 2018 20:52:35
Pogba's been anonymous again.



21 Nov 2018 19:16:00
Looking forward to the league resuming this weekend.
Lukaku has had a good rest as did smalling young shaw herrera mata pogba fellaini and fred jessie only played 20 mins on monday so we can live in hope that we see some of them nice and fresh at the weekend.
Lindelof played really well and scored so that will do his confidence no harm.
As i say i'm hopeful that we can come back with a win.


1.) 21 Nov 2018 22:11:04
Yeah me too Ken. Can’t wait for the Prem to be back. It was a 4-0 win last season at home to Palace, how we could do with similar on Saturday. I’d like to see more of Dalot, looks promising from what little we’ve seen. Surely this is a game where Matic can sit it out, Pogba-Herrera-Fred for me, lots of energy and hopefully shift the ball forward quicker.

2.) 21 Nov 2018 22:40:58
Yeah rom good shout maybe this is one matic could sit out but 1 of him or fellaini is bound to start.

3.) 22 Nov 2018 12:01:17
Jesse looks a different player in an England shirt.

4.) 22 Nov 2018 18:08:02
If Matic can stand up he will play (unfortunately) . I wish we were seeing more of Pereira. I'd like to see either way whether he is good enough. His middle name is Hoelgebaum!

5.) 22 Nov 2018 20:09:39
I like pereira mancman. But even out on loan he has never nailed down a spot in the team. So its not just at united. Even as a youth player he played in lots of positions without being expert in any.
I think he will be like adnan end up at real betis or lazio score the odd worldie and have a decent career without ever being top quality. I think he falls just short of top class.

6.) 23 Nov 2018 09:07:06
You might be right there Ken, but compared to an out of form / knackered / aging / slow Matic he might be worth a run of games. He looked reasonable pre season.

It's another problem we have at Utd; too many players hanging around contributing nothing. If they're good enough to be part of the squad then they should be playing games. If not they should be moved on and better players brought in to replace them.



18 Nov 2018 14:00:52
Good afternoon ed002.
Is there any truth in the reports that evra will be offered a new role at Manchester United?
If so is it just one of those ambassador roles or something more meaningful?


{Ed002's Note - It was suggested by someone involved with West Ham that he would be some sort of ambassador during a function a couple of weeks ago.}



08 Nov 2018 17:51:47
A few weeks ago a few things had to happen imo.
1 first and foremost jose needed to regain control of the dressing room. He appears to have done this.
2. Just as important the board needed to reign jose in and regain control.


1.) 08 Nov 2018 19:42:34
Spot on ken. Quite the turnaround. I was firmly Jose out but the past few weeks have been much better. Hope we get the players in that we need in jan. still not convinced Jose is the man to take us forward beyond this season. But fingers crossed we can improve the confidence and style and style of play. The squad seems united. That is the most important team. Hats off to all involved.

Played in more games than anybody else last season as a 20 yo more than players like scholes becks butt did at the same age. I think he is doing fine. The manager sees the same perhaps ajh.

Things would look a whole lot better if we sold the majority of those players imo bolger.
I think you forgot darmian too mate. 😂
Ideally from that list ddg rash and martial stay. The rest won't be missed a great deal in reality they either don't play a lot or don't overly impress when they do or in the case of valencia mata and herrera there is no real significant improvement in them at this stage of their career.

All fair and a accurate imo inhope.
Jose will be gone to win trophies elsewhere in the summer if not before.
No new manager will turn this squad into league winners.
I just hope the new manager will be allowed to get rid of 8 or 9 of the current squad as some of them are simply not good enough to play for us.

Great read. Every generation is told by three preceding one 'it wasn't like that in our day'
