Vitinha looks like he's off to psg its getting difficult to remain positive as a united fan at the moment press reports making us feel like were stuck staring at FdJ and not doing much about it.

I don't suppose you can give us any good news on the transfer front ed002? probably feels a bit more desperate than it is at the moment.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained where there is interest.}

1.) 17 Jun 2022 20:58:17
Cheers ed its just frustrating i know its early in the window just feels like we get linked to a player and 2 days later he's signing for another team at the moment.

I was hoping you might have something on clubs were actually in discussions with for players i know it might not necessarily be that easy just hoping for something cheers anyway.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how it works. You want players signed and don't care who it is. Clubs wants the players they identify as targets.}

2.) 17 Jun 2022 21:16:38
I get that i don't want the club buying for the sake of it, just been trying to keep positive and getting frustrated.

Thanks for all the info hopefully we get something (a target) done soon and ease the fans tension, so we don't keep asking u as many open uneasy questions.

3.) 17 Jun 2022 23:24:05
Calm down a bit. Season’s not started yet. Judge at the end of the window.

4.) 18 Jun 2022 01:07:46
Bit too much common sense for this site there Eric, not nearly enough panic!

5.) 18 Jun 2022 05:51:56
Vitinha was never a target according to some reports, and the majority of us had never heard of him until 72hrs ago.
My only concern with the FDJ saga is that if he is the key signing for EtH, then why are we haggling over £10-£20 million, just get the deal done. Haggle over the 3-4 choice signings.

{Ed001's Note - surely you must have heard of him? He did spend a season at Wolves on loan recently.}

6.) 18 Jun 2022 05:56:56
The in-laws are Baggies fans, Wolves doesn't exist in our household.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok. Must be difficult when United face Wolves then.}

7.) 18 Jun 2022 07:16:33
@Eric79 the time to judge is when pre-season starts, not the start of the season. That date is beginning to loom large.

8.) 18 Jun 2022 09:27:13
Vury good Ed001, gave me a nice little chuckle.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate.}

9.) 18 Jun 2022 10:26:46
We would still get beat Ed.

10.) 18 Jun 2022 12:17:22
Amazes me to see grown men (I assume most posters are adult males) whipped into a frenzy of pure panic, hatred and disgust buy the media about the fact commercial deals/ signings take time to get done. Utd will sign players - ultimately what does it really matter long term when they get done as long as they are. I think 12 Of the 20 premier league clubs are yet to do business, including Chelsea. And of those deals, very few are beyond loan to perm deals so far. City and Liverpool new strikers aside.

Ed2 has exposed there will be movement, and quite a bit I think by the look of it.

11.) 18 Jun 2022 15:17:27
Jesus ye're like kids before Christmas. Calm down lads, get off the internet, go outside, kick a ball, listen to some birds. it'll happen when it happens and I think come the end of the transfer window you will all be quite happy with transfer business.

12.) 18 Jun 2022 16:39:43
Nothing good comes from listening to birds Rosspique ?.

13.) 18 Jun 2022 17:13:42
Rosspique that's a good post.
But I'm afraid you won't keep most people happy.
Eth is in the job a few weeks so much to sort out least of all player sales nevermind purchases.
Very comfortable with the state of play so far although I would have liked to see more action on the exit side.
Can't wait for the new season to start.

14.) 18 Jun 2022 17:24:14
I am a bit disappointed that we haven’t done any business to be honest. Both City and the bin dippers have tied up their number 1 striker targets. Both Arsenal and Spurs, who I see as directly competing with us for 4th……. have identified players and strengthened accordingly.

We knew there was a massive rebuild required, both in terms of ins and outs. New gaffer has only just been put in place, that’s a fair one. But despite been run (still) by amateurs, there will have been meetings with scouting and recruitment and also with ETH. He himself will have done due diligence on the squad. They WILL have identified between them areas we need to strengthen and the players with which they wanted to do this. The sooner these players are brought in the better, there’s no benefit to dragging it out. The quicker you bed the players in and get everything settled the better.

So for me, it’s unacceptable that nobody has been brought in. If we just needed a tweak then fair one, but we need half a new squad!

And with FDJ…. if he’s the number 1 must have target of ETH and we are quibbling over 15 million quid………. joke.

15.) 18 Jun 2022 18:48:14
Fireman do you think 15 millions are not a lot of money? Some People want to pay whatever they ask in every transfer. That's no how things work i think.

16.) 18 Jun 2022 18:56:19
A bit tired of all the trolling of anyone who dares to be a bit impatient with our own inactivity / incompetence etc. Post and engage in the transfer banter, or be more reflective and tell yourself it will all be ok in a few months. Neither is right or wrong, we are all on the same side. I think.

17.) 18 Jun 2022 18:58:01
Some people say about us fans moaning about united not getting deals done because in the past we've messed about and missed out on targets or panick n brought the wrong players in on high wages! We should of gone n brought bissouma fir starters cheap really good midfielder with prem experience there's no guarantee de jong can handle the prem n for the price Barcelona want is silly money same old mistakes happening again in my opinion.

18.) 18 Jun 2022 19:40:03
We should not have bought Bissouma in if our Manager DoF and scouts have not identified him as a target for whatever reason.

I would guess that some targets are simply not available this year but might be next. In that case you may be prepared to wait a year if you deem a certain target that important to you.

I remember Liverpool waiting for Virgil, that was the right move in the end.

We should not buy anyone just because they are available, we have to buy a player because the player is the right fit, if it means waiting a year so be it, if we get the right player who is the right fit.

19.) 18 Jun 2022 20:14:03
Herrera……do I think 15 million is a lot of money?

Yes, but in the grand scheme of things no, seeing as we are paying a 37 year old 510k a WEEK. Get it done.

20.) 18 Jun 2022 22:19:37
For me bissouma my opinion is exactly what's needed in our midfield he can play with the ball and without better them mcfred by miles and has the experience of the prem for a margin of what we paid for many players in the last few years!

21.) 19 Jun 2022 01:33:59
So because we pay Ronaldo 30 millions a year we must overpay for De Jong or for everyone? What about Barcelona, who payed Griezman 45 (? ) a year, lowering their demands? Do you think it works this way?

22.) 19 Jun 2022 07:09:35
Herrera………. Whilst I get your point about overpaying and been held to ransom……. FDJ is a player who ETH has come in and said we need to get in order to build a team round. It’s also a position you can argue that we’ve been weak in since Paul Scholes retired. By all means penny pinch on other deals, but with this one I feel paying 15 mil over the odds is justified.

23.) 19 Jun 2022 16:07:22
I don't think ETH should be washing his transfer business in public saying he wants to build a team around FDJ. Or did he?
Has he openly said that in public? I doubt it, so you have no idea
He will be working very hard behind the scenes with his team to put deals together for the players he'd like. Timber, Anthony, Martinez, Onana. How many players do you think AJAX will let him take in one sitting? FDJ is probable and maybe 1 in from AJAX but but Give him a break . He knows what he wants, let him get on with it. He's got plenty of time.

24.) 19 Jun 2022 17:36:26
Amen to that RD.

25.) 19 Jun 2022 18:02:02
Yes, amen to that RD. Could be an element of hear say granted, and not professing to be a United transfer expert. However, given your profile pic I’m certain your not.



15 Jun 2022 12:45:56
Even more rumours about us paying the clause for vitinha today, be interesting to know if there is any update on what you said on the liverpool page previously ed002?


{Ed002's Note - I understand that Bayern Munich has been replaced by interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.}

1.) 15 Jun 2022 13:32:10
Thanks ed hopefully we can get someone deals done soon settle some of the fans down.

2.) 15 Jun 2022 14:29:23
Ed are you able to confirm whether it is United that has submitted the ‘substantial’ (as reported) bid for the player?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

3.) 15 Jun 2022 15:54:55
Whoever it was, it was rejected. Which means it wasn't up to the release clause. which has friggin United written all over it ☹️ if it is United and they've done that, nowt at the top has changed.

4.) 15 Jun 2022 16:23:31
Done some cursory searching about him; multi-talented box to box who can do a bit of everything; maybe a Portuguese Jude Bellingham.

Woukd be great partner for FDJ if he ever arrives.

Dunno what woukd happen to McFred tho….

5.) 15 Jun 2022 16:37:11
Are we allowed have subs next season Wallace?
I'm sure fdj or anybody else won't play all the games.

6.) 15 Jun 2022 17:04:40
True Ken, but would they both be happy to be squad players?

Maybe shows ETH’s thoughts regarding Garner though….

7.) 15 Jun 2022 17:18:14
Very few outfield players start more than 40 games a season that leaves about 20 starts for them.
They don't really deserve that many for united imo.
As for garner I won't be holding my breath for him to be in our midfield.
Decent young player for sure but he is a long way from top epl standard from what I've seen. Who knows what eth will do with garner. I suspect a loan maybe a full sale.

8.) 15 Jun 2022 20:58:16
Would Mcfred be happy being squad players?

They should be happy being kitmen let alone squad players.



14 Jun 2022 10:44:09
Mutterings around vitinha of porto i know he's been linked with liverpool had a season with wolves a couple of years back but don't know much about him.


1.) 14 Jun 2022 11:31:37
Anything in these rumours Ed02? He looks like a very tidy player.

2.) 14 Jun 2022 12:31:41
From the liverpool site I think they’ve probably been most keen PL team.

3.) 14 Jun 2022 13:10:15
Ah, another 'imminent' transfer if you believe the press, just like all the others. Great player, if true.

4.) 14 Jun 2022 13:29:22
Vitinha (CM/ AM) Another JM special who had a successful loan at Wolves. Porto are not keen on selling nbut any side offering his €40M release clause in cash could put it in the hands of the player. Bayern Munich and Lazio have a declared interest. Scouts from many sides have been watching him, including Liverpool, Wolves, Real Madrid and Roma. Looks unlikely.

This is what ed said on the liverpool page a bit back maybe he's been reccomended to us by someone or offered by his agent.

5.) 14 Jun 2022 13:32:59
I tried searching the liverpool page for what ed002 had to say but i think the search is broke over there nothing on our page about him.

{Ed033's Note - Liverpool search is fixed:

Performing a search on Vitinha gives us from Ed002's notes:
"Vitinha (CM/AM) Another JM special who had a successful loan at Wolves. Porto are not keen on selling nbut any side offering his €40M release clause in cash could put it in the hands of the player. Bayern Munich and Lazio have a declared interest. Scouts from many sides have been watching him, including Liverpool, Wolves, Real Madrid and Roma. Looks unlikely."

6.) 14 Jun 2022 14:55:04
To be fair ed letting u know about the search was the reason for the above post.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks.



08 Jun 2022 20:31:04
Looks like we've made an offer for de jong 60m + 20m euros.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 21:15:46
According to Gerard Romero it’s been accepted.

2.) 08 Jun 2022 21:23:03
Where does Romero say it’s been accepted?!

3.) 08 Jun 2022 21:39:51
Is Gerard Romero even remotely reliable?

4.) 08 Jun 2022 21:41:49
Being seriously considered according to reports.
De Jong wasn't too bad tonight when he came on, drove the team forward and played a big part in the winning goal. Might be a decent signing if it happens.

5.) 08 Jun 2022 21:43:15
His quote was Just now one of the players' agents has wrote to me that the process of Frenkie de Jong to Manchester United has been activated. Sounds like Barcelona have given us a value and we have matched it.

6.) 08 Jun 2022 21:48:43
Ole see Danny’s post mate. Said it on his live twitch. He’s meant to be a good source for Barcelona stuff and he was the first to mention De Jong being a possibility to us as far as I am aware.

7.) 08 Jun 2022 22:52:20
Shappy not to say i told you so if its true ?.

Jokes aside, we shoukd have wrapped up nunez b4 liverpool came sniffing, he's going to be a top striker.

8.) 08 Jun 2022 23:26:19

Well if he was good in a pointless friendly for his country then he must be well worth it. I hope the club have done a little more research than that ?.

9.) 09 Jun 2022 06:53:29
Bolger, half right if both rumours are true. FDJ €60m up front, and a further €20m in add-ons (which will probably be easily achievable) . Does mean he'll eventually cost over £68m.

However, if the Nunez rumours are true then Liverpool are paying €80m/ £68m up front with a further €20m/ £17m in add-ons.

So it looks like FDJ will cost between £52-68m.

While Darwin Nunez will cost between £68-85m.

Buying both would be a minimum outlay this summer of £110m with a potential (and in truth almost guaranteed £34m outlay on the two of them) .

However, technically I'm right, as I said I didn't see us being able to sign both ?. Which we won't.

10.) 09 Jun 2022 08:11:15
There is a thought that this kind of positive spin is regularly put out to appease fans directly after bad news circulates. Rumours of Nunez 'choosing' Liverpool one hour, then surprise surprise Utd bid for someone.

11.) 09 Jun 2022 08:58:48
Both right in some way ?.



08 Jun 2022 08:44:25
Ed after reading the liverpool page i notice youve said there is a team with a bid in for Darwin Nunez given earlier comments that you feel he will join us, i'm wondering if that bid is from us?

Also you mention a player being involved in the deal if it is us would that player be martial? I think martial, maybe bailly, or pereira would be the players they may be interested in, I understand if you can't answer,

Thanks in advance for anything you can tell us.


{Ed002's Note - It is not Manchetser United.}

1.) 08 Jun 2022 09:21:59
Good morning, would that team Atletico? I read they had shown an interest.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

2.) 08 Jun 2022 09:29:41
thank you and are we still interested or has that waned?

{Ed002's Note - MU are very keen.}

3.) 08 Jun 2022 09:50:35
This could be a test of our recruitment now. We have competition for a player we are interested in. If we get it done, fantastic and will hopefully show an improvement.

4.) 08 Jun 2022 09:41:38
Cheers ed sorry i read the european pages after i asked, so you think there are any players we have that benfica may have interest in and bring the price down a bit?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware in terms of them showing interest in. But I am not aware of them wanting any players in exchange at all.}

5.) 08 Jun 2022 09:48:45
For info Ed002, re my comment about Newcastle lol! Only credible news if from Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - He woun't be moving to Newcastle.}

6.) 08 Jun 2022 09:58:44
Hi Ed002, thought I’d take a chance while you’re around on the page to ask you what other strikers United might be considering as well as Nunez please? Guessing they must have bad k up choices!

Think you mentioned Calvin Lewin a while back? Any others please?

{Ed002's Note - Lautaro Martinez but that won't happen. Hugo Ekitike and that won't happen. Youssef En-Nesyri but it makes no sense. Patrik Schick but he won't be moving. Martin Terrier is a versatile option. Dominic Calvert-Lewin makes sense. Alexander Isak is looking to move elsewhere. Harry Kane - don't rule out an approach if Nunez doesn't happen. Nkunku but he may well be heading elsewhere.}

7.) 08 Jun 2022 10:10:15
Nunez or bust then Ed ?.

8.) 08 Jun 2022 10:10:38
Thanks SO much for swift reply Ed002! You E been wonderful with all info provided today.

9.) 08 Jun 2022 16:15:26
We are very keen but yet to make a move,

Another wasted few weeks of "speaking" instead of getting thr players in early.

Its been the same for 10 years. Very frustating.

10.) 08 Jun 2022 16:55:47
Bolger, it's almost as if they are waiting to see whether they get FDJ or not before committing to sign another player for 70m+ ??.

11.) 08 Jun 2022 22:54:01
Shappy ?. the money is there, or maybe he prefers a team in UCL

Just he's goijg to be a top striker if he carries on be gutted if he went liverpool oe athetico.

12.) 08 Jun 2022 23:00:12
Whats more annoying shappy is we have been in talks with mendes for 2 months about nunez and now we are paying for delaying and concentrating on fdj.

07 Jul 2022 11:05:02
So it looks like ronaldo is going uk journos think he's going to chelsea but i have a feeling he might be off to sporting. Question is with ronaldo going we now need 2 strikers/ forwards the club clearly want antony but with that we need a actual striker for me we should be looking at

Jonathan David
Alexander Isak
Lautauro Martinez
Victor Osimhen

Question is can we afford any of them as well as Antony? Would they want to sign for us or do they have better options?

My choice would be Isak, David, or Martinez, if we get Martinez Inter could then take dybala to replace him.


{Ed004's Note - I think mine would be Osimhen. By removing Ronaldos wages we should free up space to sign another forward.}

1.) 07 Jul 2022 11:12:29
Lautaro would be the pick of them for me. However, Calvert Lewin looks the most likely unless there is some deal involving a Ronaldo and Osimhen swap which is unbelievably unlikely.

Jonathan David is also a good player though, he's also a more flexible player positionally than most of the above.

2.) 07 Jul 2022 11:15:47
I don't think osimhen is a bad choice he's lower down on my list as he would be missing every couple of years for AFCON which could be problematic, i also think rashford will play more as striker this year.

3.) 07 Jul 2022 11:23:22
I'd like to see any of those although Calvert-Lewin doesn't inspire me at all. Also I can't see Everton selling their front two in one window.
Think we're going to see a lot of Martial at CF this year.

4.) 07 Jul 2022 11:47:38

Firstly, Martinez and Osimhen would not sacrifice CL to come to a rebuilding United.
Secondly, Isak is a lazy player - a big no from me.
Thirdly, Calvert-Lewin is incredibly overrated.

Jonathon David would be worth a punt though, very good player.

I would also add the name Scamacca to the list of options.
Italy aren't at the WC and, as a player who is known to be keen on the idea of going abroad again, I think he might jump at the chance.
Big, aggressive unit, quick, excellent technical attributes, able to shift and move across the attacking lines - I personally think he'd be the best option realistically available.

Like David, I think a fee of around £50m would get him.

5.) 07 Jul 2022 12:01:19
I'd be pushing for Christopher Nkunku. Or at least try get a deal in place for next summer and look for a short term replacement like Vardy. Or maybe look at Gabriel Barbosa.

6.) 07 Jul 2022 12:06:03
I believe scamacca is pretty much done to psg based of reading the other sites. I accept martinez and osimhen would be difficult without champions league that's why isak and david are probably our best options and i agree david may be the best/ easiest option of the lot considering cost and willingness to move. Calvert-Lewin would probably be in with Isak and David as options but will everton sell having lost Richarlison and possibly Gordon.

7.) 07 Jul 2022 12:17:37
I know Scamacca's keen on PSG, but he'd never be the main man there and might actually find himself on the bench as their style might not suit him - you know, the whole 'feed your boss' dynamic.

At United, he'd pretty much be the first choice all the time and would add a decent level of dynamism.

It's worth a try for me.

8.) 07 Jul 2022 12:27:23
Two other names we have been linked with, Tammy Abraham and Evanilson from Porto.

9.) 07 Jul 2022 12:52:58
Wouldnt touch abraham jesus christ, and i don't know anything about evanilson.

10.) 07 Jul 2022 13:06:23
Hugo Ekitike to Newcastle is off, could be a shrewd signing seeing as we are trying to get players on the cheap.

11.) 07 Jul 2022 13:10:57
Nkunku will definitely be on the move next season, having agreed what appears to be a particularly low release clause.
Wasn't convinced at all by Scamacca in the recent Eng fixture but he did have the mighty Maguire marking him. However he does appear to be more of a target man than many of these names which is probably what we need and would probably suit the Prem. A main guy through the middle rather than another fiddly wide player who cuts in.

12.) 07 Jul 2022 22:25:38
I’d take Tammy Abrahams over Calvert Lewin deffo.



28 Jun 2022 15:36:16
Like buses wait for 1 and 2 turn up at the same time looks like malacia maight be joining also.

Be some clean up to do at full back we've got shaw telles and williams for lb and malacia coming in wirh awb laird and dalot at rb and everyone wants a new right back.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 16:06:28
Imagine if the Dumfries rumours were true!

Malacia is supposedly rapid. May come in handy if ETH wants to give Maguire a shot in the team and assuming he’ll play LCB!

Looks like Ronaldo has played a blinder again ?.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 16:46:49
Anyone actually seen Malacia play apart from on fifa or FM?

Not going to lie don't watch any Eredvise and personally can't see anyone watching more than 5 games in that league a season if you support United.

People will claim they do but probably watch clips on YouTube.

Hopefully it means Williams going awful player, not anywhere near the standard of United.

Cant see him being a downgrade, hope it works out, but if he's a starter will have his work cut out with maguire next him.

Just writing a load of nonsense as the more you write it means your more knowledgeable than the rest.

3.) 28 Jun 2022 17:15:48
Nope. First time I heard of him was a couple weeks ago when we were first linked. First time I heard he was rapid was today ?.

4.) 28 Jun 2022 17:16:43
That’s the spirit Kevani :D
Not going to lie, I’m afraid my only experience of seeing the likes of Malacia (or pretty much any player we’re linked to) is via clips on Youtube. Sadly I don’t go to Holland very often. I like what I’ve seen and he’s represented his nation at a young age. I think RB is more of a concern as all the options are poor whereas Shaw is the best of a crap selection of fullbacks. Sadly countered by Telles who has been an awful signing.

5.) 28 Jun 2022 17:17:21
If we buy a cb maguire will not be in the team more often than not.

6.) 28 Jun 2022 17:32:29
Agree ken.

Its Varane and one other. ETH owes Maguire nothing.

7.) 28 Jun 2022 17:39:41
Not seen him on FM, I always go for Mendes in year 2. I buy Livramento for RB again Yr 2 as I can't get him before.

If there are any other positions tpu need clearing up for us on FM let me know!

8.) 28 Jun 2022 18:03:01

Well we need a few any suggestions.

9.) 28 Jun 2022 18:58:59
Well I’ve watched him on YouTube for the last 20 mins and i can say we’ve got the greatest left back to ever play the game.

10.) 28 Jun 2022 20:27:32
I haven't seen Malachia play and dare say not many of us have our subscriptions to the Dutch version of Sky Sports. But, I know Ten Hag was scouting him for Ajax and that's good enough for me!

At long last the transfer wheels are starting to turn.

United available at 45/ 1 to win the league (per Oddschecker) .

11.) 28 Jun 2022 21:21:53
Halesini I can guarantee you keep your fiver if you don’t place that bet lol.



08 Jun 2022 17:03:48
Looks like we might see resolution either positive or negative on nunez soon seems to be a lot of reports liverpool making a €80 +€20 bid ed 002 says on liverpool page benfica will want as much up front as possible that might just be where we can beat them to the signing.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 17:52:18
Liverpool I don't think will stump that much up front, and they won't want to get into a bidding war either so I still think we can get a deal done.

2.) 08 Jun 2022 18:07:19
Lose Mane for £30m and sign Nunez for twice as much. Sounds like the kind of thing Utd would come up with.

3.) 08 Jun 2022 18:11:59
It's not as simple as offering more money upfront, the players wishes will also be considered.

Would he rather move to Liverpool with Klopp and UCL football, or United and EtH with EL football.

I've seen both quotes attributed to him saying he admires Ronaldo and would love to play with him, AND quotes saying he wants to play UCL football next season.

The reality is the longer we take to close deals the more chance there will be that we have competition for that players signature.

But it is as simple as well shappy they need to get an offer accepted if liverpool are offering the same as us but we offer 40-60 up front the rest in installments and then bonuses and liverpool are offering the initial payment over 3-5 years plus bonuses i know which one would be accpted and which would be rejected.

Yes the player needs to accept but that doesn't matter until a bid is accepted he could prefer liverpool or united but if only 1 makes an acceptable offer its not really a choice.

Whilst the player will have a choice i think he'd be happy to join either club if they make an acceptable offer.

We won’t offer more though in any capacity. More likely to start distancing ourselves to try and avoid embarrassment.

It’s not like buying a car from discount Dave for £100. Guys, many things come into it, and no one knows players or clubs predicaments or choices, just chill and stop trying to 2nd guess and keep moaning, when window shuts then moan, it’s not even opened yet!

Jesus christ tim that's depressing most the reports say liverpool are preparing a bid and at best its a verbal bid this transfer isn't finished but i do agree it feels like we may be dragging our heels but we have no idea uited may not have placed a bid but may be more down the line agreeing payment structures required so when a "bid" goes in a deal happens quickly.

The window is not even open… yet City have Haaland, Villa have 2 signings, Leeds and Newcastle have got in on the action. The window is just a date, but the planning should never stop.

Spenno other teams have a proper people with a proper plan, they don't go around talking billy big balls

Big dogs get player A while little crying puppies sit outside and get the left overs.

Matt judge has left his position. well things are getting interesting maybe there's a spot opening up for Paul Mitchell after all.

Ed001 be interested to get your opinion of rangnicks recent press conferences i remember you said he might not want to p off the people he's going to have to work with a week or so ago. Something seems to have changed since the new manager was appointed or do you think he's doing things publicly because he's not getting listened to privatley?


{Ed001's Note - I think it is a bit of both. Now the new man is appointed, he knows he no longer has to worry about being in charge next season, so he can upset the players. But also he wouldn't be saying it publicly if he was being listened to in private, so he is saying it where everyone can hear.}

1.) 24 Apr 2022 16:26:57
Honestly from his comments i really don't think he cares what the majority of players currently at the club think.

As for the rest of it i agree i hope the fact they are stuck with him making these comments for 4 games will force them into listening he's said all the things most of us fans have seen over the last few years hopefully we act on what he says.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think it was so much the players as their agents if he had to deal with them.}

2.) 24 Apr 2022 16:50:06
Im sure the club didn't help having players pop off for sponsorship obligations and some of these players being happier to do that kind of thing than train.

{Ed001's Note - that should never happen when the players have so much free time on their hands each day! That is crazy. They should be contracted to do a certain amount of those things each week, they certainly used to be.}

3.) 24 Apr 2022 17:05:45
I don't know anything about the clubs workings but its certainly one of the complaints Van Gaal made, so I would not be surprised if it was still happening, it would also stack up with our recruitment being more for publicity than for actual football reasons.

{Ed001's Note - it is a stupid way to run a club.}

4.) 24 Apr 2022 17:34:20
Agreed, why I'm so hoping that Arnold, Mourtagh, Fletcher and those above will listen to Rangnick he knows what he is doing whilst the rest don't they are overly reliant upon a one figure system, hence why Scholes, Neville, Ferdinand and other ex players seem so intent on a manager potentially sorting the issues (Rio and Gary seem to have caught on a little Scholes seems blissfully unaware) .

Also I'm very frustrated by everyone who says new manager clean sheet for these players, I really don't understand what the point in having a DOF and Technical director (who sits in on training and matches) is if this is the case? The new manager should have an opinion but these people should be able to explain why they aren't to be kept around? But I think Rangnick will help a lot with this potential issue.

{Ed001's Note - very good point about the DoF and technical director and players having clean sheets. They should be judged on their time with the club, regardless of who the manager is.}

That seems to be the consensus onlined that Barcelona are telling him to go amd telling him they won't take him on tour, personally i don't think they have treated him very well in this whole thing but i can only go of news reports and the info you give us. I think he will join because of the way Barcelona are telling him to go in a way forcing him out.

Thanks for all the info on this one ed its been a bit of a roller coaster.

Convince him that dropping to europa will only be a for now thing. Or, and this is based only on my opnion which is based on what's been written and what we've heard from the eds, that he will be treated better wanted and used as a vital part of the team and i think Barcelona place pedri gavi busquets kessie they have just signed torre i'm not sure their plans for him and they have nico gonzales as well as riqui puig and that's just the players i know of they have young players and probably want others to join.


{Ed002's Note - He wants to stay and play at the highest level. Barcelona need to free up the money that can be saved from his wages to sign others so they want him gone.}

Because you support the club, not a player. You support your team have your opinion but we are supportors we support and encourage our team its that damn simple.

Biggest reason we have such lazy selfish players now is because we have "fans" of players, who only see the good the highlight reels, the off field dramatics, meaning sponsors aren't after the best player just the biggest star.

Rather than having supporters of teams who support their team no matter what and encourage their players to do better for the team and play better for the team.

You shouldn't boo any player for your own team ever you can dislike them not like their performance but were called supporters for a reason.

I never thought we would be able to sign the player this year if eth was not our manager ed i think he's the man pushing for the deal and would have some knowlege of if he can convince the player I've no idea if he personally has had that chance or soon will have that chance.

But we have to move on eventually the club seem in a position of doomed if they do doomed if they dont. don't get him they get told why spend so long and miss out on so many others not to get him. do get him people will complain we have spent so much tome on a player who doesn't really want to be at the club or it would have been completed earlier.
