Di Marzio now saying Utd are close to reaching an agreement with Sanchez, just need to negotiate a fee with Arsenal. Hope its true, he's normally bang on!

scholes_18_18

Guillem Balague says that City are still the front runners. So that must mean he's odds on to join united.


2.) 12 Jan 2018 13:49:08
He was right regarding Pogba so hopefully he gets it again here.


3.) 12 Jan 2018 13:59:12
He has been wrong 100's of times. And works for Sky :S.


4.) 12 Jan 2018 14:28:54
Dan balague also said ddg will join madrid, pogba will go to madrid, lukaku will be a Chelsea player. The man has no clue and knows little other than worshipping guardiola and praising Barcelona and madrid. He thinks only reason to choose utd ahead of city is money, i wonder what he thinks city will pay him in on weekly basis blessings from their brazilian striker?


5.) 12 Jan 2018 14:29:35
Guillem Balague is so deep in Pep's ass it's unbelievable.


6.) 12 Jan 2018 14:46:00
Guillem Balague lost all of the little respect I had for him when he constantly said Pogba would join Real as they're the 'bigger club'. Di Marzo and the Eds were the ones who I listened to and unsurprisingly they were right.


7.) 12 Jan 2018 15:59:54
Balague also said in his tweet it s either pep or money. Poor little city.


8.) 12 Jan 2018 19:14:00
Mick,

I know, because if he goes to city he won’t be getting paid 😂.


9.) 12 Jan 2018 21:44:59
Good to see Gary Neville has given him a piece for that stupid remark. What an irritant.


 

 

11 Jan 2018 13:38:23
Any truth in United going in for Alexis Sanchez Ed002? Thanks.

scholes_18_18

{Ed002's Note - On the basis of something that was discussed this morning, it seems likely that Manchester United are showing an interest in Sanchez but it is unlikely to be a straight cash offer they are putting forward.}


 

 

12 Dec 2017 00:55:35
Rob Beasley, who worked closly with Jose when publishing his book last year is saying Utd WILL sign Bale in the summer. His Injury record is horrendous mind.

scholes_18_18

1.) 12 Dec 2017 10:06:48
NO NO NO! If Madrid want rid we should steer well clear unless the fee is significantly less than the 80m they are likely to demand.


2.) 12 Dec 2017 10:43:15
Wouldn't take him either, he's rejected us more than once and can go see out his injury plagued career elsewhere.


3.) 12 Dec 2017 11:04:19
Couldnt agree more scholes.


4.) 12 Dec 2017 16:46:43
If the deal was for under 40m and Bale had a pay per play style contract, or at least a decent proportion of his wage dependent on him being fit to play then maybe. But to be honest I would prefer it if we focused on players who are fit and able at least 90% of the time.

{Ed002's Note - It won't be anything like that being offered to Manchester United.}


5.) 12 Dec 2017 17:28:58
I know Ed002, that's why I wouldn't want to sign him.

{Ed002's Note - Not going to buy the shirt when if he arrives in the summer then?}


6.) 12 Dec 2017 17:55:32
i believe 002 is hinting this is going to idiot ed's latest 'marquee' signing. I definitely see this happening, unfortunately.


7.) 12 Dec 2017 18:19:40
There's only one name on the back of my shirt. mine. lol.


 

 

25 Nov 2017 01:28:21
Outs: Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Fellaini, Carrick (Retire? ), Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic

Promote: Demi Mitchell, Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, A. Pereira

Buy: LB (Rose/ Tierney), RB (Joao Cancelo, Meunier), CM (Cesc/ Milinkovic Savic), AM (Ozil), RW (Pulisic) CF (Lewandowski)

What do you guys think of this? or What would you change?

On a personal note, would love it if we could strengthen them six positions, promote youth like we've always done and get rid of the deadwood. And is it me or don't you think we need a right winger more than we need a left winger? we look utterly hopeless on the right every game, most of our attacks stem down the left as it is.

scholes_18_18

1.) 25 Nov 2017 03:55:46
I don't know what Mr Mourinho thinks, but we do need RW than a LW.
Buy; LB-Rose, RB- Fabinho though is playing as mid now, CM- Sergej/ Soler/ Max Lopez, AM-Lorenzo Peregrin, RW-Malcom/ Dybala (He is versatile), CF-let Rashford play on his natural position, sharing the place with Lukaku.


2.) 25 Nov 2017 08:11:11
I would let Darmian, Shaw, Fellaini, Smalling, Carrick, Zlatan, Mata and Mkhitaryan all leave. However I would extent Blind's contract and keep him. He offers good squad coverage at CB, LB and CM, and to be honest without ever being spectacular he rarely let's us down.

I would promote Tuanzebe, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay.

I would bring in Rose, Meunier, either Milinkovic-Savic or Goretzka, then I wouldn't look for a striker but two creative forwards, my choices would be Lemar and Willian.

GK- DDG, Romero, J. Pereira.
FB- Valencia, Meunier, Rose, Blind, Young.
CB- Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Lindelof, Tuanzebe.
CM- Matic, Pogba, Herrera, Goretzka/ Milinkovic-Savic, McTominay.
AM/ W- Lemar, Willian, Lingard, A. Pereira.
ST- Lukaku, Martial, Rashford.


3.) 25 Nov 2017 16:50:02
i personally would be reluctant to let Luke Shaw leave until i have seen him play a consistent run of games in the first team

out: Darmian, Young, Fellaini, J Pereira, Mkhitaryan, Herrera, Carrick, Ibrahimovic, Blind/ Smalling, Borthwick-Jackson

In: Fabiano/ Florenzi/ Meunier/ Bellerin, Sessegnon, Milinkovic-Savic, Ozil/ Dybala.


4.) 26 Nov 2017 16:28:45
What is the level of grading to label a player as "deadwood", how does a player get into the deadwood bracket? And what are the other levels of player if 1 level has a category of dead wood?


 

 

10 Nov 2017 13:00:36
Any truth in Herrera reaching an agreement with Atletico Madrid Ed002?

scholes_18_18

{Ed002's Note - They can agree a pre-contract before the New Year but there is no secret that they would like to take him in the summer when he is out of contract.}


1.) 10 Nov 2017 13:37:07
Thanks Ed, hopefully Saul comes the other way.

{Ed002's Note - No that won't be happening.}


2.) 10 Nov 2017 13:47:00
My sarcasm eludes the masses.


3.) 10 Nov 2017 14:10:46
"Better Call" him to make sure Scholesy.


4.) 10 Nov 2017 14:32:38
Not good enough for us, his words, not mine.


5.) 10 Nov 2017 17:29:35
Do we have that 1 year option to extend.

Then at least we can get some kind of fee if he goes.

{Ed002's Note - you cannot do that.}


6.) 10 Nov 2017 19:00:26
Fair enough, thanks for the reply.


7.) 10 Nov 2017 21:38:37
good player but I think we will buy another cm or 2 this summer along with a number 10 and a left back possible Rose in january.


8.) 11 Nov 2017 04:31:02
Ed002 I thought Herrera had a 1 year extension clause.

{Ed002's Note - A club cannot invoke that and then sell the player.}


9.) 11 Nov 2017 11:23:21
Reports we are extending the contracts of Mata Herrera blind and young.

{Ed002's Note - So no players coming in then.}


10.) 11 Nov 2017 11:40:53
So is it not true we are about extend there deals .

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea whether Manchester United will do or not, but the point is simple, if players stay others don't arrive.}


11.) 11 Nov 2017 14:15:12
It's been made clear to Jose that if he wants new players then he must sell the players he doesn't want. Problem for Jose is he can tell Ed Woodward who can go, but players can refuse moves and a lot of the time MU players are on silly salaries and buying clubs will not offer an acceptable amount for the player to leave. So Jose may well want Perisic and Milinkovic-Savic for example, but if no one buys Mata and Herrera, then he will need to use what we have.

We are not City or PSG, we cannot buy everyone and loan everyone out.


12.) 11 Nov 2017 15:03:43
I think MU will activate all their one-year clauses personally. But only so they don't lose them on free transfers. We'll see.


13.) 12 Nov 2017 12:06:25
I think if you read between the lines of ed2 quotes players will be leaving so others can come in.

21 Jan 2018 20:20:45
Milinkovic Savic had another brilliant game against Chievo, he's strong, fast, elegant on the ball but a powerhouse at the same time, would be perfect alongside Matic and Pogba!

scholes_18_18

1.) 21 Jan 2018 20:41:22
Yes two extremely expensive signings in the middle of the park is not enough. United need another one ASAP. Buy, buy, buy.


2.) 21 Jan 2018 20:48:44
He was really good again. I've been watching him a lot since ed002 said he was our no1 target. He also said it would be really expensive and that there is serious competition.


3.) 21 Jan 2018 20:50:29
He is a brilliant player who I was saying I wanted a day or so ago, but having thought about it, is he too similar to pogba? Could you fit him and pogba in the same team? I am not sure.

It hurts to say that as I really want him at United. But it would be a massive transfer fee, significant wages to potentially spend time on the bench or would we drop pogba?

Would Jorginho be a better option as he is slightly better at the defensive side, but also has the creativity and passing range.


4.) 21 Jan 2018 21:31:54
Bet Maze used to wear the green and yellow scarf at OT a few years ago. 😂😂.


5.) 21 Jan 2018 21:43:11
Get him quick just so it will upset Maze😲😲😲😲.


 

 

14 Jan 2018 20:59:39
Alexis Sanchez is a red. Get in, what a fantastic signing.

scholes_18_18

1.) 14 Jan 2018 21:24:20
Not yet, I will believe it when he is holding the Jersey.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 22:08:04
I just came back from a long walk and all the way I was hoping to see a message like this when i got back. Hope it's not BS, he is just the tonic we need to galvanise the season and maybe the next few years.


3.) 14 Jan 2018 23:52:32
Defo love to see him at o. t are new no.7 running amd taking men on with martial on other wing . Fingers.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 07:37:39
Just out of interest where would you see him playing for us THIS season IF he joins.


 

 

31 Dec 2017 12:53:11
Fosu-Mensah is having a terrific game against City, Sane can't get a sniff. Sell Blind and Darmian, get Fosu and Pereira back from their loan spells and promote Tuanzebe, strengthening the team without spending and it makes sense.

Put Fosu-Mensah in a midfield 3 with Pogba and Matic; he's strong, fast, box-to-box, and it'll allow Pogba to roam free, which is what we need if want to get the top 4, which is not looking like a certainty right now. Oh, and Andreas Pereira has a brilliant dead ball delivery, which is something else our dire teams needs right now.

scholes_18_18

1.) 31 Dec 2017 13:10:10
Couldn’t agree more Scholes.


2.) 31 Dec 2017 13:38:53
Mensah should be played as RB, he is playing well there and its the position he has played at Utd and Palace. If he keeps improving would be long term replacement for Valencia.


3.) 31 Dec 2017 13:49:43
You were right until you started putting square pegs in round holes again.
CM? not just yet.


4.) 31 Dec 2017 14:12:10
Didnt Fosu-Mensah play in midfield for the youth team FZZ? he's better in midfield i think, excellent at running and carrying the ball forward, like a powerhouse. But i do get what you're saying about square pegs in round holes, has happened far too often in recent seasons.


5.) 31 Dec 2017 14:17:09
Yeah Scholes he is a midfielder and defender, but at the moment he's playing very well as a RB, and i just said CM not just yet, maybe a season or so yet.


6.) 31 Dec 2017 13:24:31
Would rather let TFM see the loan out he seems to be getting decent game time, coming back in jan for 2-3 games only to sit on the bench for rest of the season when valencia comes back will do him no good.


7.) 31 Dec 2017 14:33:09
I agree csm. He has been injured and out of the palace team too just got his place back.
He is versatile but much more comfortable playing centrally either at cb or midfield.
I was hoping be would be an understudy for matic this season perhaps he will secure that role when he comes back in the summer. With carrick gone its a role that is up for grabs. He will learn a lot if he plays a lot of games at palace tbis season.


8.) 31 Dec 2017 14:40:19
Well said CSM, but is rather see him get game time over Blind, Darmian, Rojo etc.


9.) 31 Dec 2017 19:38:25
Scholes that issue would be sorted if we buy a lb in Jan. Young and Valencia cover rb and new lb and shaw cover lb, neither of blind or darmian play, frankly darmian should be sold in Jan and tfm stays where he is, he has played nearly all of their games against big teams and that is a great experience for him, something he won't get at utd right now.


 

 

26 Dec 2017 13:13:36
Harry Kane is just ridiculous, would love it if we sign him in the coming years.

scholes_18_18

1.) 26 Dec 2017 13:43:57
I think he was our long term target but we went for Lukaku instead.

If we went for Griezmann last year then we would have had a chance to go for Kane in 2018 summwr or 2019.


2.) 26 Dec 2017 13:55:54
he is world class scholes. Wish he was playing for us.


3.) 26 Dec 2017 14:47:23
he is humble but great, a true top professional, who all players on and off the pitch should try to emulate.


4.) 26 Dec 2017 17:07:43
Bang on red gate. If I was him I'd be in no rush to leave spurs.


5.) 26 Dec 2017 19:36:31
The mighty spurs. We are having a shocking season and 2 thirds of our team are deadwood who should be sold into the championship, yet Spurs are still 6 points behind us and have won nothing.


6.) 26 Dec 2017 23:38:15
Lukaku should not of been rested today.


 

 

22 Dec 2017 22:12:35
Anyone on this page still against signing Ozil? Ran himself into the ground all game, again. And what a finish for his goal.

scholes_18_18

1.) 22 Dec 2017 22:34:13
He is world class Scholes and better than our creative no 10s. I would be thrilled if we signed him as I have wanted him before he went to real. Really hope it happens.


2.) 22 Dec 2017 23:16:34
he has not done enough of that all season though.


3.) 23 Dec 2017 02:48:20
Oezil plays well when he has intelligent movement ahead of and around him. We lack that, so we should steer clear until players of his caliber can advance us rather than hinder us. Oezil is a finishing touch, we are several steps away from that. He would be a passenger at the moment and we have enough of them.


4.) 22 Dec 2017 23:58:07
I'd take Oezil. He would improve us a lot.

Merry Christmas to everyone. Take care.


5.) 23 Dec 2017 10:16:23
Been sayin no to him all season BUT this recent ozil is the player that arsenal fans have wanted for ages and the player that we would benefit from.

Makes me wonder why the sudden increase in wrk rate?


6.) 23 Dec 2017 10:52:58
I think getting Oezil would be a major boost to the team. He would take a lot of work off pogba by being another outlet to bring the ball forward thereby freeing him up a little more. He is also decent at holding the ball up and bringing others into play- miki has lost the ball too often in the recent past before he fell out of favour. Martial and rashford will also benefit as they can make their runs knowing they will be found.
But I think the person who would profit most would be lukaku. Miki and lingard are #10s who like to play the ball to the strikers feet- not lukaku’s forte. Oezil is comfortable playing ball to the feet of players and is very good in playing balls into space which lukaku likes as he can then run into it and bulldoze his way through the defence rather than play with his back to goal.
I don’t think it will happen, but will be chuffed if it did as it will give us a massive boost - especially in the champions league as Oezil is not cup tied.


7.) 23 Dec 2017 11:45:35
Ozil can pass the ball accurately and under pressure. Something our team is not capable of at present. I'll sign him, Malcolm and Sessgnon or Gaya from Valencia, and that will be a good window.


8.) 23 Dec 2017 12:10:16
Get your team on it schmid! that's a very good jan window.


9.) 23 Dec 2017 14:43:49
Add Fabinho, milinkovic-savic, lewandowski and a young cb in the summer and we should have a formidable squad.

I got annihilated on this site when i said Lukaku isn't good enough for United in the summer, he is just dreadful, nothing good about his game at all, barely won a single header, gifted them two goals, missed a sitter by hitting it straight at Ederson, never ever should have bought him. Disappeared against all the top teams this season, and his touch my oh my.
