Couple of papers saying mourinho's gone no matter what the result this weekend. From a personal point of view I'd rather get rid of the players causing problems before the manager however Jose really doesn't help himself at times. If it is true I suggest a short term option for the season and look to appoint a DOF by christmas.


1.) 05 Oct 2018 22:57:34
This club has become a joke.

2.) 05 Oct 2018 22:59:36
Can any of the eds confirm if this is the case that mourinho will be sacked after the game tomorrow?

{Ed004's Note - There are a few posts waiting for Ed2 so he will reply when he gets a chance. In the mean time I understand that this is a big news story but can posters please stop asking for Ed. If your post isnt shown its because its one of the few hundred been deleted while Ed2 is away}

3.) 05 Oct 2018 23:00:56
If this is true it just shows how out of touch the board are with the fans and the ethos of the club. Sack him today and no one bats an eyelid. How can they let Jose manage the team tomorrow knowing that he's gone regardless of the result. There's certain ways to do things.

4.) 05 Oct 2018 23:28:49
This is what the board do. Did it with Moyes and van Gaal. Woody is a pathetic coward!

5.) 05 Oct 2018 23:40:13
Gary Neville spot on in his assessment tbh, whatever we think of playing style, there’s a lot more wrong than that. We don’t know the ins and outs of what it takes to manage a football club the size of United but the guys running it seem to think it’s a toy, no wonder our managers struggle.

6.) 05 Oct 2018 23:43:25
I shouldve also added. I am not one of those who gets attached to a plyer or manager as i just see th3m as employees.

I am a bit old school as i like a bit of discipline and i don't think some of our players are mature enough for a manager like Mourinho. They maybe ne3d a amanager lik3 Guardiola who is always up your arse and wants to control everything about.

7.) 06 Oct 2018 00:17:05
I find it highly unlikely that if mourinho getting sacked that he will be in the dugout for tomorrow's game more likely they will make a statement in the morning confirm8ng they have parted ways I mean what would happen if we hammered Newcastle 5 nil how bad will that look that they sack him.



08 Aug 2018 13:06:55
Ed i know pogba has been spoken about a lot before but seems like something could be happening with Barcelona, if we can find a replacement before the window closes. Do you see us signing a player then selling pogba after the English deadline? seen a couple of reports linking us with savic. i understand if there is nothing new any information is appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as I have explained.}

1.) 08 Aug 2018 13:37:01
Almost certain we won’t sign anyone now. If we sold Pogba after the deadline too, then goodness, we’d be even more screwed than we already are. Awful transfer window.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 13:51:16
ed has said there is plenty of time left, both ed 001 and 002 seem confident we will sign someone I've no reason to doubt them. i'm hopeful on alderweireld still.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 13:53:53
The club has been backed into a corner. We have a player who we have tried to sell all summer, a player who doesn't want to be at our club anymore.

Yet no one has bid until now, so we are left with 36 hours before the transfer window closes. And we are to sort out a massive deal for a player leaving the club while also finding a replacement. We have to do this while everyone side outside of EPL has no time pressure as they still have weeks to go before their deadline.

Combine this with another 2-3 players who are unhappy and want to leave, plus the need to sign at least a couple more without replacing any potential exits leaves us with a mountain to climb or face being left in a bit of a mess.

Now for once I do feel a little sympathy for Jose, he clearly wanted more done and soon so the players could bed in.
However, the fact both Pogba and Martial two of our few potential world class players wants to leave are in a large part down to him and his handling of them.

So he certainly hasn't helped himself. I don't know what goes on behind closed doors, but publicly he has been picking fights with everyone, including players like Valencia who he has recently made captain. This surely can't be helping to create a good working environment.

Currently we have 3-5 players who want to leave the club, rats leaving a sinking ship comes to mind.

This pre-season has been very similar to the one before Jose's Chelsea meltdown.

Preseason has felt aimless like a boat without a rudder just drifting, at the mercy of the tides.

A captain who cared about the ship would be doing all he can to fix the rudder and give the boat a sense of direction. However, Jose just seems intent on smashing up the life rafts and blaming everyone else.

This season will end in heartbreak for many United fans. When it does it is vital that we don't start in fighting and blaming either the "Jose in" or the "Jose out" fans and we get behind the new manager. The club needs a man in our clubs own image. Someone who knows what it is to represent our club, someone who knows what it mean to our fans and who knows what is expected of them. First comes youth and offensive football, then comes winning titles. You build from the bottom not the top.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 14:19:28
who would you move for shappy, manager wise?

5.) 08 Aug 2018 14:20:24
We've been infighting all last season and over the summer. I don't see how this season will be any different. It'll be worse. Least till Wenger is appointed. After that who knows.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 14:52:18
Doesn't seem like there will be nearly enough time to sell Pogba and sign an adequate replacement before the window closes. We will just have to accept one of our star players doesn't want to be there this year.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 14:54:50
All we seem concerned about now . Or should I say all Ed Peckerwood is bothered about is how many different sponsors we can sew onto our shirts.
Terrible transfer window . Nothing to come again this year . Apart from a new manager maybe.
Signs are ominous with Jose's rant's and negative attitude.
But if jose does go . Then surely Woodward should throw himself on his sword also.
Never mind the Jose out campaign. We should have a bring back David Gill campaign. Here's to a long hard season.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 15:45:40
After tomorrows deadline we still have 3 weeks of wondering if any of pogba, martial + others will be sold; The club doesn't have to sell players on so we haven't been held to ransom at this time and although we ain't moved that far forward we haven't gone back from last season as we have replaced carrick with Fred. It isn't ideal but fingers crossed there is something in the pipeline which the eds have indicated there could be.

9.) 08 Aug 2018 19:50:49
I’d love Wenger. We’d at least play some awesome football with this squad!

10.) 08 Aug 2018 21:04:25

The Captain of any ship would only take the boat in the direction set by the owners of the ship. We should look above the manager and judge what direction the ship is being directed in. Looks like a trip round the Baltic rather than a luxury Caribbean cruise.



26 Jul 2018 14:11:41
Eds as always ssn saying u ited have contacted Leicester re Maguire, personally I hope we stay far away from him, is there any truth in the news or are we still trying for Toby alderweireld?


{Ed002's Note - Alderweireld remains the first choice but right now id priced out of a move. I understand that the club will now be enquiring about the availability of alternatives, and that may mean a formal approach about Maguire.}

1.) 26 Jul 2018 14:27:15
Thanks ed, I hope we buy quality or play tuanzebe and Tim fosu-mensah rather than buying other players for that sake of it. Are the alternatives still as mentioned or are there new names?

2.) 26 Jul 2018 14:58:41
They are not buying for the sake of it. Maguire is obviously on a list.

If they were to buy for the sake of it they would buy any tom dick or harry from any division.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 15:17:41
Being on a list doesn't make someone not bought for the sake of it, sometimes it's better to get the best option or nothing and in my opinion if the options are buying aldewierd buying Maguire or playing the youngsters than I'd stay well clear of buying Maguire.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 20:54:32
If Maguire represents the best we are able to afford/ convince to join us we have fallen much further than I thought we had.

Ed you've mentioned above that Aldeweireld is being priced out of a move just now. I can't pretend to have much of a clue about United's finances but some of the figures being reported for Maguire like £65m are far higher than anything I've seen for Alderweireld usually reported around £40-£45m. Is it correct to assume that we have turned to Maguire because we have been quoted far higher than the above for Alderweireld?

Because if we're going to spend £60m I'd rather see it go on Alderweireld than Maguire.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs will resist over paying for players.}

5.) 27 Jul 2018 07:56:29

I don’t think that message is fair at all and Maguire would prove a lot wrong on here, it doesn’t show how far we have fallen it just shows how mad the market is these days.

6.) 27 Jul 2018 10:04:54
Gds, if he signs I would be delighted to be wrong. If Maguire comes here and significantly improves us, I'd be surprised but very happy to be proved wrong on my opinion. If we wanted a CB who is PL proven and as good as Smalling or Jones why didn't we just sign Jonny Evans for £3m?

I agree the market is mad and £40m is the new £10m but signing someone who doesn't seem to be an improvement on what we have for any price seems counts intuitive. Also when comparing Maguire to the other CB's we've looked at, he is nowhere near as good as the likes of Varane, Alderweireld or Bonucci.

7.) 27 Jul 2018 13:35:37
Harry M is a similar level in terms of pure defending to Smelling and better on the ball. It's a no brainer for me.

8.) 27 Jul 2018 13:44:17

He can bring the ball out from the back, he is brilliant in both boxes and wins every header and would mean we finally cause a few problems from set pieces, he is certainly on a different level to an aging Jonny Evans and gives us attributes we don't have in some of our other defenders.

9.) 27 Jul 2018 16:32:44
I agree he is very good in the air. Set piece wise that can only help us both defensively and in an attacking sense.

However, I disagree that he is good at bringing the ball out from the back. He may do it, but I've not seen him do much that is useful when he does. For me, he tends to run into the space in front of him and if there is no blatantly obvious pass on, then he gives the ball away.

He had a decent world cup in a system which hid his flaws and generally played against sides who shouldn't be testing a £60m rated defender. In my opinion Southgate selected Young ahead of Rose as he had to have someone capable of tucking in to support Maguire as he is suspect positionally.

30 Jun 2015 18:21:20
With sky currently suggesting a deal for schneiderlin isn't being negotiated, after saying yesterday we were in talks, can any if the eds (ed001 perhaps?) clear this up? (I have searched united arsenal and Southampton sites for any updates)


{Ed001's Note - I don't know what is happening with him, sorry. Southampton are very good at keeping things quiet their end. However, there is also nothing coming out from the United end regarding negotiations with Saints either, which suggests it is not ongoing right now. There is interest, but there is also interest from other clubs. Schneiderlin himself has been clear that he won't be joining a team outside the Champions League, which rules out a lot of the interest. Man Utd and Arsenal are the two in England that want him, that are in the Champions League, the price Southampton are looking for has been made known, but neither have made an offer yet. Until someone does make an offer, nothing is likely to happen, though he is looking to move, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some pushing from his end to get an offer going in for him.}

1.) 01 Jul 2015 08:04:38
nice one ed!

2.) 01 Jul 2015 10:57:19

What do you make of some of the reports that we have made a bid about week to 10 days ago and if you read what Koeman said, it could be construed that our bid falls well short of their valuation for the player.

{Ed001's Note - it was not a bid, you asked the price, Southampton named it and you said that you would only be willing to offer a much lower amount. It was an informal chat rather than a bid, but calling it a bid brings in clicks to websites as it sounds more exciting.}

3.) 01 Jul 2015 17:28:56
Well at least we know what's needed to be done I guess that means a transfer could be wrapped up quickly if we decide to go ahead. I read an article by andy mitten who tends to be reliable united wise saying Southampton expect us to get the deal done

With Monaco potentially sacking Louis litt (Jardim) would he be an option to replace mourinho should he leave?


1.) 09 Oct 2018 15:24:45
Would love jardim I think he’s a very good manager. Near on impossible job with his best players being sold every year for big profits. He beat PSG to the title a few years ago so has trophy credentials.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 15:34:27
wouldnt mind seeing the 4-4-2 formation at old trafford.

3.) 09 Oct 2018 15:23:51
Any of the Ed's know if Jardim is getting sacked? And i think he would be an excellent replacement, makes sense especially if Monaco get rid of him as French media is reporting. But we'd need a DOF if he was to come in.

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page, this is the Manchester United page.}

4.) 10 Oct 2018 08:22:31
I’d like him so that when he turns out useless you lot will stop banging on about him.

5.) 10 Oct 2018 15:06:25
You're that sure FZZ? Stupidest thing i've ever seen on this page, want a possible manager to fail at the club so we stop banging on about him, makes sense.

6.) 10 Oct 2018 17:51:10
I would love to see the Prem get Lit Up!

7.) 10 Oct 2018 18:27:54
Think you missed the point scholes as usual. And ill spell it out for you, he's over rated. There you go.

He has won nothing, and his current side sit 18th in the table. You think we are going to go for a manager like this?

8.) 10 Oct 2018 19:26:02
Think you need to look up jardim again FZZ. He won Ligue 1 2 years ago. Against the financial might of PSG that was an incredible experience. He also knocked out pep’s city in the champions league and reached the semis. He is a very talented young manager. Is it a risk to appoint him on the back of a poor season? Sure. But we’ve been down the experienced route of a manager with trophy credentials. Jardim would most probably get more out of the attacking player. One final point, Klopp in his final season almost got Dortmund relegated. Yet he walked into the Liverpool job and has done a very good job since being there. I doubt Liverpool had reservations that Klopp was a poor manager because of 1 poor season. Let’s not be a prisoner of the moment and forget about the good that jardim has done. Jardim is very highly rated and would be a great fit for united, provided he has a good director of football to work with.

9.) 10 Oct 2018 21:26:06

Yes he won against the "might" of PSG that just got played off the park by Liverpool. Liverpool are in the same league as little and lonely Leicester.
Let me ask you who had the better achievement, Ranieri or Jardim? Shall we go for Claudio as well?

They beat city on away goals drew 6-6. Klopp finished 7th Park, no achievement no, but its not close to being relegated.

10.) 10 Oct 2018 22:25:10
FZZ compare the financial backing of Monaco and PSG. There front three alone costs more than monaco’s Whole squad. Liverpool as well are on a different level in terms of stature of club than Monaco. Not sure how you can even compare the two. It’s apples and oranges really. Just a bit of snobbery tbh looking down on winning the French league with a team that is not PSG.

And of course I don’t want Ranieri, nor am I taking away from him his miracle of a title win at Leicester. I’m not basing my opinion on jardim purely winning the league. There is so much more to him which makes him an attractive fit for united. He plays attractive football and has a track record of developing young talent (James, Bernardo Silva, martial, mbappe, Mendy and so on) . Is this not in keeping with the traditions of our club? Do we not aim to promote from within and develop potential into work class talent? Jardim ticks a lot of boxes for the sort of manager we should be employing at our club. He is young enough to imprint his philosophy on the club as well as to grow and be moulded by the values and traditions of united. Yes he has had a poor season this year, but I seem to remember we hired a certain manager off the back of a terrible season. Not sure why the idea of jardim is so outrageous to you.

11.) 11 Oct 2018 01:08:12
Says i've missed the point but goes on to say he's won nothing. Brilliant.



09 Aug 2018 17:05:03
Well that was an awful window. Now we have to support the team as there is nothing else that can be done. Ed002s sharkopod shall be interesting listening in the next couple of days.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 17:17:18

3.) 09 Aug 2018 17:32:01
I'm assuming another big roundup of things clubs are looking to do as always. I'm sure we'll find out if anything was attempted in there. Unless it's more of a European roundup of course.



09 Aug 2018 10:03:34
Ed figured I'd try and make this easier rather than constant different questions. Are you aware of anything happening ATM that could lead to potential incomings or outgoings if possible could you provide any information? This is more to try and save my own sanity of checking the site every 10 minutes.


{Ed002's Note - I have repeatedly provided information. I am not aware of any change in the situation this morning.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 13:15:43
There is 4 hours to wait, why do you have to hassel people on things when you can wait just 4 hours and the day can be over.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 13:32:45
Sorry Ed I know u have provided again and again, but just wondered if you could tell us whether you believe we will sign anyone before 5pm today.
Sorry but please if you can provide any bit of clarity either way, this crap is driving us mad.



02 Aug 2018 17:13:14
the sky sports betting machine has gone full circle, alderwiereld, maguire, mina and all the way back to toby alderweireld. I'm imagining the headlines from newspapers releasing they're exclusives tonight about united and spurs agreeing a deal. i know you've covered this one over and over ed so don't expect any update unless you have heard anything new?


1.) 02 Aug 2018 22:59:33
It’s nothing short of disgraceful that Sky can push a rumour to get people to bet with Sky bet on it happening. How there isn’t regulation to stop that I don’t know.

Hi ed when you say June 30th would that mean games started by then, or league completed by then? as it may already be getting tight to have the leagues completed by that time. I understand if you would not want to get into this yet as I'm sure preferred effort is to complete the season.

When you say money ed do you mean transfer wise or wages? I would hope the club would be willing to release the player with as little expense going forward as possible rather than wait for a fee. especially to China.


{Ed002's Note - Money is the problem regardless. If MU want to release him that will be fine. pay up the rest of his contract.}
