Nordi mukiele. sorry for spelling. Any truth that we have initiated contact for him with RBL? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Months and months ago.}

Sorry if it’s been mentioned on here before Ed. Media slow on the uptake then. Do u think we will press ahead or is he seen more as a backup option at RB? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps.}

Thanks Ed.

Torres is a gamble, similar to Lindelof for me, la Liga suit him as it would Lindelof. We need a strong vocal CB someone who organise and lead from the back.

I agree. I feel he may be out of his depth in the EPL. He loons likea good CB, but his lack of pace is worrying.

25 May 2022 18:07:33
Seems fairly obvious that Timber is going to sign. A centre half who gives us an option at fullback, too.

I just hope the Pau Torres and SMS links are wrong - too slow.

If ten Hag gets his wish and gets everyone in the building by the time pre-season starts, he's got one month.

Torres isn't slow, he is just too easily bullied off the ball. I also wonder how his game would adapt to playing in a higher line. In theory he should adapt fine, but he hasn't ever PROVEN he can do it.

SMS I don't think would be the worst signing. Personally my only concern is that it seems (from the outside looking in) like De Jong is EtH's choice. Yet SMS is a player the club have been chasing for a while.

While I doubt players are signed against the managers will, Jose did say he was told it was Fred or no one, in which case he agreed the deal.

So there have been reasons to worry about the club signing players they have been chasing for a long time for the new manager.

26 May 2022 00:33:42
We know Eth has the final say, he even said he wouldn’t come if the club doesn’t meet his requests. If SMS comes, it will be because he wants him.

26 May 2022 08:19:26
Exactly caolan. But with all the years of experience and all the coaching history and expertise on here folk on here seem to know best.
Most posters on here would not be out of place working for the daily sun or daily sport.
Forming opinions on little or no knowledge.

26 May 2022 10:23:30
People criticise Torres because he’s got the look of lindelof! If anyone tells you they’ve watched him other than a few champions league games their talking rubbish! If ETH wants him I’d be happy in the knowledge he knows what he’s doing ??.

26 May 2022 14:50:23
Ken,

It is certainly a strange one. However something that is becoming more and more common. I used to watch some of the channels on youtube and they all become channels preaching what tactics to use! Got to get behind Ten Hag and if he wants a player then get him. At the end of the day if they are his players then he will live or die by those calls!

26 May 2022 16:44:19
Torres clocked the fastest speed last year in La Liga. So don't think he is slow.
He plays for spain under Luis Enrique who has a good eye for talent.

26 May 2022 17:46:44
TRD.
He is a top player to suggest otherwise is just being silly.
Shappy does ask a good question. Can he translate his club and intl form into EPL form?
Nobody knows for sure but if eth wants him then I suggest he and the scouts no more than any of us loons in here.
I'd be a big fan to be honest. I think it's highly likely he would be a very good player in the epl. But I only have seen him play el a few la liga games and a couple of intl games. He looks a good one to me.

26 May 2022 19:54:24
Ken, Ed has said Torres is a target for Real Madrid and Man City.
Surely they wouldn't be after him if he ain't that good.
That said, adapting to a new league is always a challenge.

26 May 2022 20:02:36
He's clearly a good player, yet many good players have struggled to adapt to the EPL.

Juan Sebastian Veron was one of the best midfielders in the world when we signed him for a record fee. Yet he struggled to adapt to the EPL and was average at best.

Pau Torres has a lot of skills that modern managers like, he's a quick, mobile ball playing CB who can carry through a press and pick out a good forward pass.

He is however, weak in the air and too easily bullied off the ball. Two things that could seriously hinder him in a league like the EPL.

That doesn't make him a bad player, just one that MIGHT not succeed in our league, or at least not to the level we need.

Ed002

Would it be possible for you to provide a list of Forwards the club would be interested in?

Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - There have been a large number looked at Dave from the likes of Nunez and Martinez (neither of which will be easy given no CL) thought the mid range En-Nesyri and Hugo Ekitike solutions.}

25 May 2022 10:22:36
Who would you think is likeliest forward to sign Ed if you were a betting man?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get involved in such things Eric.}

25 May 2022 19:27:40
Fair enough Ed, fair enough.

23 May 2022 21:04:58
After the interview l can see 4 to 5 youth players promoted to the first squad, under the radar, CB DM and young CF purchased. Getting certain players out may change the attitude or others too. He sound like serious guy take no prisoners, Expectations are high.

I see the excuses are out in the papers today. As ever it seems that everyone and everything was to blame for our dismal season except the players themselves. Let's hope ETH arrival signals a change but until there is some self reflection and personal responsibility among our players then nothing will change. ETH spoke well in his interview and I'm excited about what he will bring, however No matter the standard of coaching NOTHING can excuse the players sheer lack of effort for the whole season. Man up lads or do one.

Agree0 Disagree0

tim, the players can't hide anymore, we have all been blinded by oh its woodwards fault, the boards etc.

yes i agree in parts they are to blame but when the players don't want to work and run for the badge, we cannot except it.

my dad said to me yesterday even when united were relegated they tried, they may not have been good enough but they tried.

this lot play for 6 months a season, chat through there backs on twitter and think everything is ok.

i hope ten hag tell thems pre season starts in a week, they don't deserve no holiday, they have been on holiday since december.

25 May 2022 12:26:07
The players are the club manifested on the field. The failure has been holistic from the Board Room down. Ironically the people who probably deserve least of the criticism may be the succession of managers. They may not have been as good as we might have expected, but all have been hampered by the amateur hour and arrogance above, which led to the retention and acquisition of a poor uncoordinated squad.

23 May 2022 10:50:21
Two stand out comments from EtH's first interview.

Winning spectacularly and entertaining
It's all about winning titles.

If he implements this then I'm excited for the next couple of seasons at Old Trafford.

"I analyse by myself, I observe around and speak with a lot of people. but I will draw my own line. Rangnick's consultancy role? That is on the club". Doesn't Erik rate Ralf?

22 May 2022 23:25:43
Well that's it. The season is finally over and we can put our suffering to bed for a few weeks. We are proper s*e*p and an embarrassment to the shirt. Thank God Brighton were up for a fight today and many thanks to them for getting us into Europa league.

1. Did anyone see that little bit of footage at half time? Cavani and McTominay trying to address the team whilst that total embarrassment of a supposed captain was stood looking the other way tossing bits of grass in the air to check the wind direction! That bloke should not be allowed to wear a United shirt ever again but sadly he will. What a grade A clown he really is.

2. RR was a major flop as I intimated when he was signed. Yes of course it could have been the opposite and I am jumping on the "I told you so" bandwagon but NOTHING has improved within the club and you could argue it has indeed got significantly worse. I actually believe we would have finished higher with Ole!

3. Sadly the end of Mata. A true professional to the end. I said this a few weeks back but a team of Mata's would have put up far more fight and shown some heart.

57 years of supporting United and this is the lowest we have sunk as a club regardless of relegation to the old Div 2. The club is a mess and hopefully the new regime can fix this if they are not constrained by the bigger clowns up top.

RANT OVER. Bring on 2022/ 23 season with some renewed hope!

Agree0 Disagree0

Rangnick the coach hasn't worked but i truely believe, bringing him in will be the best decision the club ever made, yes maybe ole would have finished higher, so what! That would have meant the club would have carried on as it was, being run by amateurs. I'm willing to accept how bad its been as long as the changes that are needed are made and the main one being solskjaer isn't manager anymore. I appreciate there's a long way to go with the changes that need to happen, the main thing now is the fans give Eric time and full support, I can't wait for the new season!

24 May 2022 11:10:56
As a coach RR hasn't worked as well as some hoped but I think he was brought in on a temp basis to sort out other crap in the background that we probably won't see or notice at first. The club has been sliding for years with even our last league title being a vast over achievement tbh.
Hopefully, we can get rid of the problems, the deadwood and reset a proper infastructure on all levels throughout the club. ETH has been given the job on the pitch and as fans that is what we want, fast attacking football with a mix of stars and youth. My opinion only, but as good as he has been its time to push CR7 down the road as part of the rebuild. We couldn't move on from saf and until CR is gone we will hinder the prospect of youth and attracting forward players as they won't want to sit on the bench.
Eth has not had time for anything really so its a case of waiting and seeing what he brings: hopefully we see the signs early that will be encouraging but the one for me is seeing phelan and co outta the dugout.
