I really hope the rumours of Fabián Ruiz are true. I've thought for a while he'd be a decent player to have in the Premier league. He'd be a very suitable replacement for Matic.
I get that Ten Hag wants FDJ at all costs etc but if we could get Ruiz for the reported £42m then it's a no brainer. Very good player.

2toms

1.) 29 Jul 2022 15:53:08
I tend to agree and think he'd be a suitable alternative to FDJ if that deal isn't able to be concluded.

Personally I think Fabian Ruiz better fits EtH than SMS who is another of the often touted alternatives. Although personally I feel that SMS is much like Pau Torres, a club target the predates EtH and might not be some the new manager really wants to pursue.

Or at least Fabian Ruiz's skillset more closely aligns with that of FDJ.

If we could do a deal that includes Ronaldo then that could be a two birds with one stone situation.


2.) 29 Jul 2022 16:01:20
I wouldn’t mind both players to be honest. Two different midfielders who would both instantly improve our team.
Savic definitely does seem like a club target though.


3.) 29 Jul 2022 20:03:30
Shappy. Why would CR7 go to Napoli? Although they are in CL they may be packed in a group of death and chance of finishing 3rd in the group is high. So effectively CR7 will again play in Europa league in few months time. Atleast in United he is on insane wages, he has to reduce his wages if he goes to Napoli.
He probably prefer a team who has high chance of going far in the CL or even winning it.

{Ed014's Note - what he prefers and what those clubs in with a chance of winning the champions league want are two totally different things.


4.) 29 Jul 2022 20:20:52
Don't think anyone cares what you think personally shappy. Think they are more concerned with what the manager thinks. And rightly so, whoever he asks for, should be attempted to be attained.


5.) 29 Jul 2022 20:43:01
Jeez RedWhiskey, there's no need for that.


6.) 30 Jul 2022 07:47:25
Wow RedWhiskey, whose p. ed in your Macallen?

If we're not going to give opinions then this site will become very slow.

I didn't say the club should sign Ruiz, just that in my opinion he is closer in style of play to FDJ than SMS is. Which if we are looking for an alternative to FDJ then Ruiz would make more sense than SMS.

I've repeatedly said that the best signings we can make this summer are the ones the new manager wants.

However, that said the reality is his top target FDJ might not be attainable this summer. So alternatives will probably need to be sought. Obviously an alternative that the manager approves of.


7.) 30 Jul 2022 17:47:16
It's been one of themes of this summer, it doesn't matter what XYZ thinks its the managers choice that's important.


8.) 30 Jul 2022 19:59:26
I didn't mean it in any malice. Simply that what is most important is getting who the manager wants. Rumours are flying around everywhere and we all jump on them I'd like this I'd like that. Ultimately it doesn't matter who we want, it matters who the manager wants.


9.) 30 Jul 2022 21:43:15
Don't worry RedWhiskey, I didn't take it personally. I agree that the most important thing is we sign who the manager wants.

I just enjoy discussing the other options we are linked with.


10.) 31 Jul 2022 16:26:29
My biggest worry is TH is fixated with Ajax or Dutch players, I appreciate he needs to get the players he wants, but I would have hoped he had a dossier on players of other teams countries…that to me is a little of a worry…. We seen with DVB who was supposedly good at Ajax over hear is is very poor and he had plenty of chances….


11.) 31 Jul 2022 17:31:31
We have 2 Dutch players in the squad, one of them is Chong who has been here for years. Obsessed.


12.) 31 Jul 2022 17:52:05
Yeah god forbid we bring players from the Eredivisie to United, it'd be terrible to have to watch players like RvN, RvP, Stam, Park etc at United.


13.) 31 Jul 2022 18:13:30
Oh yeah but you forgot, Depay, Patrick Kluivert, Meijer, Boogers, Janssen,
DVB, . But Brains that’s not what I am saying is it, I’m saying every player he linked with is Ajax/ Dutch could just be lazy jounos but there are other players out there instead of making Ajax the richest club in the world!


 

 

24 May 2022 20:10:46
Milinković Savic rumours surfaced again this evening. Talk of a €55 million bid made to Lazio.

2toms

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about this, repeatedly.}


1.) 24 May 2022 20:57:42
I know. Basically we want him, been the favoured choice to replace Pogba for some time but we’ll mess around with silly low offers and probably **** it up.
Or something along those lines?


2.) 24 May 2022 22:44:12
Can’t see him as a ten Haag signing so where’s the point.


3.) 25 May 2022 01:01:26
What about Ten Hag though?


4.) 25 May 2022 08:35:40
Why Tim?


5.) 25 May 2022 12:11:55
From what I’ve seen of him he’s not really high energy or good at the press. Maybe I’m wrong but we’ve been linked for 3 seasons now and nothing. Is he a club signing or what the manager wants? That’s what I’m getting at.


6.) 25 May 2022 12:36:11
On the brink of becoming another Wesley Sneijeider this one…….


7.) 25 May 2022 12:36:45
I agree Tim_99.
I have watched him 3-4 times this year and he's isn't a high energy player and doesn't press.
I think he would find the pace extremely difficult in the Premier League.
Just my personal opinion but i would stay well clear, it's not the type of player we need.


8.) 25 May 2022 13:39:27
So eth has final say that's been made public and very clear.
Who do you think knows better on what eth needs? I would suggest he does.
If he sanctions a bid for any player then I'm sure he knows how he plans to use him.
Same goes for his coaching team.
Opinions are all well and good informed opinions are usually best.
I like sms I think he is a great player tehnically and has great physical attributes but he is not quick especially.
I will support any new signings and staff I don't pretend to know better than ETH.
Lots of crazy rumours and most are untrue but 1 thing is for sure no player will be signed without eth approval so let's not second guess everything too much. After all we are the real amatures not those in charge.


9.) 25 May 2022 15:18:53
Is it a football team or a 100m relay team we talking about? what's this obsession about being fast? He knows how to play football and i think he knows it bloody well and that is enough. Was Scholes ever fast?


10.) 25 May 2022 15:19:25
For once I agree with one of your opinions Ken ?.


11.) 25 May 2022 15:59:09
Seems like Italian media talk. It’s the same as last year and year before. Like the above post it’s turning into another sneijder/ gaitan.


12.) 25 May 2022 16:14:11
Was just thinking the same fireman, I agree with Ken!


 

 

20 May 2022 13:19:22
According to Andy Mitten (via Twitter), Phil Jones is set to leave. Anyone know where he's going?

2toms

1.) 20 May 2022 14:49:25
i beleive it, i think he himself now finally sees no future at UTD, best for everyone. Good luck to him at his next club. Frees up a spot and a salary.


2.) 20 May 2022 17:37:23
A&E most likely.


3.) 20 May 2022 21:34:43
The Dog and Duck public house.

Chip butties all round after the match.

Shaw is interested in joining him.


4.) 20 May 2022 22:35:17
Shaw would get lost and be waiting for someone on the side of the road telling him where he is supposed to be.


5.) 21 May 2022 14:43:51
Phil Jones career is a strange one. From having so much promise as a youngster at Blackburn and Fergie thinking he was future England Captain material. Blighted by injuries and clearly not at such a lofty level. Still has more trophies on his CV than most: Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League. He's 30 so time to find his final contract where he can play most weeks. Plenty of Premier League teams he could do a job for I'm sure. Imagine he will need to reduce his wage demands from his current £75k pw but am sure he doesn't need to worry about signing on anytime soon!


6.) 21 May 2022 17:08:44
Jones never came close to fulfilling the potential his early performances at Blackburn (ironically as a young defensive mid) suggested he would.

A Fergie fave for sure but with no pace and the turning curve of a Sherman tank he's clearly not got a future at OT. I actually thought he was pretty decent when he started that rare game a few months ago and expected to see him used a bit more.

I'm sure that he could still do a decent job in the Prem, but anyone would be nuts not to insist on a pay per play basis which I feel will be the sticking point as he's been able to earn a huge amount without contributing.


7.) 21 May 2022 23:23:28
Realistically he should join a decent Championship side, or if he wants to play longer head off to France/ Spain if there are suitors there.

Was a good defender - ravaged by injuries which took its toll physically and mentally - not his fault.


 

 

20 Apr 2022 11:32:59
Jim Lawlor and Marcel Bout have both left United.
Looks like big changes behind the scenes this summer too.

2toms

1.) 20 Apr 2022 12:38:16
I do hope this is a sign of better people and things to come.


2.) 20 Apr 2022 12:41:37
I thought Marcel bout was a good scout but had no one to report to.


3.) 20 Apr 2022 12:01:50
To be honest looking at our recent signings it's probably long overdue.

Although to be fair I don't know how much blame can be put on them and how much on the people deciding which players to pursue AFTER they've been scouted.


4.) 20 Apr 2022 12:04:39
Interesting ed has said a lot of people don't know what their actual jobs are or what they are supposed to do, it would be interesting to see if this is because of recommendations by rangnick and part or streamlining things.
Hopefully this is a good move but none of us really know the set up of the club.

{Ed002's Note - They have decided to leave, not been sacked. The main issue will be dissatification with the DoF.}


5.) 20 Apr 2022 12:07:01
This is hopefully another sign that the club is looking to make the right footballing decisions and changes that could evolve the club into a modern football club. With stories that EtH and RR had questioned why the club had not even scouted some players they would have expected this is another sign that the the likes of Arnold/ Murtagh are listening.


6.) 20 Apr 2022 13:05:53
Ed002's response is deeply concerning. Scouting is such a critical activity for any football club, especially one whose so-called DNA is built around youth and development of. A bit like Cadburys failing to buy enough cocoa beans!


7.) 20 Apr 2022 13:08:18
ED002,

Do you think the club would be better off appointing a highly experienced DOF and moving Murtough into another position if possible, as he appears to be out of his depth.

Has RR had anything so say about the current DOF?

{Ed002's Note - They only appointed him a year ago.}


8.) 20 Apr 2022 13:05:54
Is this a good decision Ed002?
Over a billion spent for a decade but the squad assembled looks like a laughing stock.

{Ed002's Note - What decision?}


9.) 20 Apr 2022 13:47:40
That's not a good sign Ed. By all accounts I believe Bout and Lawlor are well thought of.

{Ed002's Note - There is a reason for it.}


10.) 20 Apr 2022 14:12:20
Deeply concerning explanation by Ed002: Media spinning it to be a much needed structural organisation but the reality seems to be the consequence of another structural imbalance.


11.) 20 Apr 2022 15:17:17
I'm not sure Ed is saying it's a bad thing. Murtough is newer on the job, but is clearly trying to run things a certain way that perhaps they disagree with.

{Ed002's Note - No it is nothing related to that.}


12.) 20 Apr 2022 15:29:15
I'm sure there is Ed. And my guess is that it wouldn't reflect well on the club.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing reflects well on the club.}


13.) 20 Apr 2022 16:52:55
Do you mind elaborating further as to why they both chose to leave the club Ed02. Your insight would be greatly appreciated instead of many in here just coming up with baseless opinions.

{Ed002's Note - it is unimportant.


14.) 20 Apr 2022 18:14:01
Nah bugger off with that, we appreciate Eds info on this page, its genuinely top of the list. Never want to see it go the way of other pages where idiots give Ed rubbish and lose out on his info. Whatever he shares, he shares.


15.) 20 Apr 2022 18:51:58
Hear hear Chris, the amount of time Ed002 kindly gives us is incredible. He’s always good enough to answer questions straight away, even though he can’t always give out sensitive information.

Always first with accurate information and says it like it is.

Very very grateful to him.


16.) 20 Apr 2022 20:05:39
Totally agree with these comments, thank you for anything you share, it's really genuinely appreciated.

Although I must admit I am desperate to hear Ed2 reply to someone along the lines of

"Man Utd who are known for being a model of how to run a modern football club"

I just hope it's in my lifetime.


17.) 21 Apr 2022 06:45:11
As Gary Neville said, Jim leaving is not a surprise, had been marginalised in the decision making process for years.


18.) 21 Apr 2022 09:28:32
Question to Ed002 if l may its been a few years since l have last posed a question to yourself. Do you believe there is now a chance we move away from the much maligned clown structure you used to inform us about now there appears to be operational changes taking place. Have a good day 002.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change in structure.}


19.) 21 Apr 2022 11:01:27
Well to start with there is murtagh and fletcher in roles we never had up until a year ago and Woodward gone from involvement in football matters, straight away that tells me the structure has changed from peak Woodward times!

{Ed002's Note - No. The structure that the club has had in place has not changed since appointments were made. We are not talking about some random point in the past.}


20.) 21 Apr 2022 12:16:20
Haha good man ed002. Brutal honesty.


21.) 21 Apr 2022 14:06:37
It was reported earlier this year that Murtough would be getting a deputy to ease his workload, think Andy O'Boyle is the current favourite, but don't know if a decision has been made.


22.) 21 Apr 2022 21:13:54
What exactly is Fletchers role then? I have never really worked it out.


 

 

05 Apr 2022 14:45:34
Latest rumour is McClaren as Ten Hags number 2. It would be worth it just to hear that Dutch accent again.

2toms

1.) 05 Apr 2022 15:03:57
Would be funny if true. He was Sir Alex's No.2 in 1999. Wouldn't be the worst appointment.

EtH with McClaren and RvP on his coaching team. Would probably keep those who want to hire former employees happy.


2.) 05 Apr 2022 15:32:36
Probably a Sir Alex suggestion, god forbid we should have a coaching set up that did'nt feature one of his old boys.


3.) 05 Apr 2022 16:11:02
Bilko, I reckon the report is a pile of rubbish or wires crossed as Andy Mitten has said that he was a reference for Ten Hag and made no mention of a coaching role.

Although they do know each other well apparently, it may not be the worst thing in the world but I don't see it happening personally.


4.) 05 Apr 2022 17:04:39
How many more mindless buffoons can one club employ? No thanks Steve.


5.) 05 Apr 2022 17:23:31
Did we just try the bring back an old Fergie No.2 experiment. Unless EtH has specifically requested it, then no.


6.) 05 Apr 2022 18:22:06
Maybe he will be mainly utilised keeping Ten Hag dry in our rather inclement Manchester weather ??.


7.) 05 Apr 2022 18:46:57
Brendan81,

Haha wolly with brolly. I'd forgotten about that.


8.) 05 Apr 2022 19:39:17
Maybe we should just officially announce Fergie.

At least Martinez won't be up against 6ft 3 Darwin Nunez now. He'll have a chance up against Liverpools midgets up top ?.

2toms

{Ed014's Note - should be an interesting relegation battle!?


1.) 15 Aug 2022 22:20:48
Footballs a funny old game. We could get a result and have a point more than Liverpool this time next week.

{Ed014's Note - you just never know mate!


2.) 15 Aug 2022 22:56:00
Nunez the only only thing he didn't shank all night was the 2nd headbutt.


3.) 15 Aug 2022 23:47:42
My father used to say "underneath every ponytail is an ar*e hole". Nunez could be Andy Carroll MkII.


4.) 16 Aug 2022 07:58:52
Just watched the incident?.


5.) 16 Aug 2022 08:40:45
Firstly, Nunez will be a good player although these sort of things may follow him through his career as he does appear to have a streak in him. then again look at the recent line of strikers from Uruguay and it is in them all.
Secondly, 2Toms. I love the optimisim but let's not kid ourselves. At the minute we are a mess, players are a joke not working hard or following tactics. Liverpool, just adapting to some new players. At best I see a batteling draw, at worst Liverpook click and we get a tonking!
The next few weeks with new additions, tactics becoming better imbedded and hopefully some of the dross dropped for other players (looking at Maguire, Shaw, McTominy, Rashford) and we can hopefully start an upward trend.


6.) 16 Aug 2022 09:57:15
Just imagine though Brad76 if we accidently beat them and go a point above them!

I must say though, the draw has helped United as just adds a little bit of pressure to Liverpool coming into the game and no Nunez or Firmino. Not that I'm expecting a positive result still.


7.) 16 Aug 2022 10:23:10
Ports

I hope we start aws on the right. Diaz will eat dalot for breakfast. No way he can cover him. Maybe start martinez at left also an option. Might be the kind of game and position he needs. Diaz is tricky f…. Better the nunez all day for me.


8.) 16 Aug 2022 10:38:23
Martinez will be feeling 6ft tall knowing he doesn’t have to mark him.


9.) 16 Aug 2022 12:24:32
I think liverpool will be really up for this game given their start and the rivalry. I hope our guys show up for a good old fashion proper game. Really curious to see the line up and how we set up.


 

 

08 Aug 2022 22:53:05
Genuine question. Can anyone name any positives regarding us going for Arnautovic?
I simply cannot get my head around this one, at all!
He's 33 years of age, never been prolific, trouble by all accounts and quite honestly a complete waste of time. Surely to god we can muster up something better with 3 weeks still to go in the window?

2toms

1.) 09 Aug 2022 01:39:19
He has league experience. He does press and defend from front. He is generally a nuisance, could come on and make something happen.

Main one is he has worked with coaches before and then clearly rate him for a player that will come in and not expect to start every game.

Everyone said we needed options upfront, he is an option who surely doesn't expect to start. If our main striker (ronny/ a n other) .

If he is coming in as a backup 9 then I understand it for a playing option. Shame about his character. Unfortunately EtH seems to be weak on morals.


2.) 09 Aug 2022 07:24:40
Going for players he once worked with is an interesting move.

Has EtH gone into United, looked at the players United have scouted and said I rather trust my own judgement than your scouting team. He did something similar with Ralf.


3.) 09 Aug 2022 07:53:20
I think the bigger issue is what do you do with ronaldo. We are stuck with a huge personality who imo needs to go. Its a mess and going by our transfer business its clear the new manager is calling the shots. Bno point in pointing fingers, he has to deliver at least a major improvement in our play. One game means nothing in this league, so let's wait and see.

We need to fix our defending before looking for massive improvements attacking. Giving away cheap goals for too long.


 

 

07 Aug 2022 21:43:52
What a thoroughly depressing day. We've had to endure Maguire, Shaw, Rashford and McTominay playing for our great club again.

Then we're hearing of a bid for Arnautovic.

2toms

1.) 07 Aug 2022 21:54:43
I agree nothing has changed whatsoever!
If you as a manager are trying to implement a different style and an actual plan, then really why persist with players who have basically failed to grasp any style or even the basics of football?

There’s a long held psychological opinion that younger brains learn more quickly and are more adaptable to new ideas!

If this is the case then literally start to train and play the younger players into a system the manager wants to implement! It genuinely cannot get any worse.

I would personally take, yet another, season of failure if there was an obvious improvement in the performances, no matter how small that is.

Yes we don’t know how good “potential “ is, but until you try you’ll never know!

Cannot be any worse than the “proven” talent on display today!


2.) 07 Aug 2022 22:07:08
We really do have a woeful set of rubbish bags who are way below the standard required at this club.
How we are still going with Shaw, Rashford and McTominay is beyond me.
Add Maguire, Dalot and Fred to that list as well if you want. They’re mid to lower table standard footballers. I’m fact McTominay would struggle to get into Leeds or Bournemouths starting 11.


3.) 07 Aug 2022 22:53:37
As woeful as we were it's way too early assume that this team cannot be trained to perform better than it did today.


4.) 08 Aug 2022 01:58:41
Mc Fred midfield is a killer you can't change much when you're main area u need to improve keeps getting played.

Played some decent stuff. Martial actually ran and worked. I think you're right, 2toms ? Mind you, I forgot just how awful the MUTV commentary is.


2.) 12 Jul 2022 16:09:23
But it's impossible to improve without making 10,000 new signings to replace the League 1 level players we have.

5.) 12 Jul 2022 16:22:29
Let’s not get carried away it’s pre season, against a Liverpool side that was not at full strength for starters

It’s a good start but it’s pre season there is a lot of work to be done

We are miles off Liverpool but there was promising signs

But let’s not get Carried away there were also just as many points to improve on.

But any win against Liverpool is always nice.


6.) 12 Jul 2022 18:36:51
Effort wise it seems like we are on the up. but under ragniak it started well too . Problem Eth will have to deal with the most is the same as it's been for years, we string 2 decent performances together and the usual suspects get carried away (sone are gone now thankfully) and think they are Billy big nuts and then the effort drops off . He needs to keep them under his boot every training session and match or we will do nothing again.


7.) 12 Jul 2022 19:03:06
I am less worried about collective effort under EtH than I was under our recent managers.

It's not that I think some of our players won't slack off, I just don't think he will accept it. If they do I think he will call them out and if they continue I think he won't pick them.

That needs to be the first part, then the board DoF etc need to back him 100% if he needs to take this approach.


8.) 12 Jul 2022 19:56:18
Charlie Savage looks like he could be good.


9.) 12 Jul 2022 21:22:27
Liverpool had so many chances to score. The result could easily have been 5-4 to us and this was not against anywhere near their full first team.

We are a long way short without new additions to the midfield.


10.) 12 Jul 2022 21:18:56
Pereira looked like Pele in preseason a few seasons ago….

Anyone else bored of the transfer window already.
Bring on the 1st game of the new season.

2toms

1.) 10 Jun 2022 09:38:13
For sure 2 Tom's but to be fair it gives the old women something to gossip about in the supermarket.
There really is some people that get caught up in it.
I suppose they keep the likes of the solicial media kings like Romano and the likes earning a very healthy living reading their gossip columns. They are filling a market gap feeding the gossip hungry clickbait followers.
That leads to the analysis paralysis you get from people that have never been on the inside of a football club but call those that are armatures.


2.) 10 Jun 2022 11:14:04
Ornstein is a boss. Nothing for weeks then drops a transfer bomb and goes again. No constant updates, repeating the same info with different wording just facts. He’s one of very few who are accurate and trustworthy.


3.) 10 Jun 2022 12:11:54
People like yourself ken?


4.) 10 Jun 2022 14:36:01
Ah hi Rosspique. Not seen much of you on here lately I hope you are well.
I try not to believe or react to every social media report.
99%are a load of rubbish but people choose to get frustrated by stories even though that don't have any truth.
Usually the younger posters but not exclusively maybe it's a generational thing.

I’d take him to be fair. I quite liked him at Hertha.
We as fans need to accept our current level.
Cunha is strong and direct. Holds the ball up too. I’d take him through the middle.

His missus and Rabiot’s mum will be fun to have around the club ?.

This was my first thought FZZ. If a bid materialises I’ll eat my hat.

Arnautovic can stay in Italy. Why we’re targeting him is beyond me. Rabiot I’d take for the reported low fee but only IF he is not the alternative to De Jong.
Adding Rabiot and Tielemens/ Neves would improve our midfield but it’s surely not the route we want to be taking?
As Shappy has said, Ruiz would’ve been a decent alternative but he’s off to PSG. I can see us getting Rabiot and going for SMS late in the window. I’m certainly not against Savic as he’s better than what we have.

I wouldn’t mind both players to be honest. Two different midfielders who would both instantly improve our team.
Savic definitely does seem like a club target though.

GDS2, I was 9 years old then and they’re still some of my favourite memories supporting this club. Eric’s arrival was perfect timing. God I loved them days!

Footballs a funny old game. We could get a result and have a point more than Liverpool this time next week.

He’s found himself smack bang in the middle of an almighty mess. DSG, you make some valid points regarding Eriksen and his selections but I very much doubt he could envisage that shambles on Saturday.
I have honestly never seen such a weak group of players. They crumble instantly something goes against them. Ten Hag would’ve spoken with Maguire before making the decision of captaincy and probably heard all the right things, he now has to grow some giant bollocks and switch things up or the pressure from media and some fans will be unbearable.
Shaw needs dropping, he’s a weak individual, and I’m not being cruel, he is just not up to it. Maguire the same. All his shouting and fist pumping AFTER a goal has been conceded kills me. I can’t bear to watch him one more game.
Bruno’s ineffective in this team, he’s a luxury player who would flourish again at PSG or Bayern. Rashford I’m lost for words how bad he’s become. McTominay and Fred no more needs to be said about them.
Lastly De Gea, he is past his peak unfortunately. He’s never been mentally strong, although he’s had some outstanding individual games over the 12 years. He comes out, speaks to the media, says sorry and puts his hands up (more so than at corners) which is admirable but we need to looking for a replacement.

Players like Rabiot are the level we’re at currently. We’re a Europa league team at present, not CL elite. It hurts to say that out loud but it’s the reality. Shrewd signings, the odd academy player stepping up and a decent coach is the only way we’re getting back to the top.

More likely that he’s thinking about the money he’s due AJH.
I bet it hasn’t even got to the stage of deciding between London or Manchester. It’s a lot messier than that by the looks of it. Talk of lawyers involved and all sorts.
Barca are a shambles and then you add our board into the mix, it’s not going to be plain sailing.
