Just want to thank Ed002 and all the other Ed's for another window full of information and updates. I know you get asked repeated questions over and over by fans desperate to get blow by blow updates. We really do appreciate the time spent and knowledge shared each window.

Hope you get a well earned rest before the first post asking for lists for January start showing up!


{Ed002's Note - Thanks. We appreciate it.}

11.) 04 Sep 2022 19:46:26
So, Ed002. January. what's happening? ?.



21 Mar 2020 22:26:27
Rumours of Auba to Utd. No idea if this is now just crazy time due to lack of content. But I have to say, that would be an excellent signing for us. Last year with Arsenal, so they may be tempted to cash in. Almost has the feels of an RVP but he's not quite so deep into his career.

He would be an upgrade on Martial as a 9. Scores goals for fun. What do you all think, would you take him?


1.) 22 Mar 2020 10:38:16
Rumours started last summer when Andy Goldstein from talksport said he was told Utd were in for him so maybe there is something in it who knows. Good player though wish he wasnt as old as he is.

2.) 22 Mar 2020 10:54:42
I think we're done buying older players on high wages. He's a fantastic player but you'd imagine he'd demand Sanchez type salary. Just doesn't seem to go along with Solskjaer's plan.

3.) 22 Mar 2020 12:02:02
I'd prefer lacazette to be honest. Although he's seemed a bit off this season.

4.) 23 Mar 2020 11:10:01
I would rather save the money and buy ighalo and spend the big money on right wing, cm, pogba replacement and pacey centre back.

5.) 23 Mar 2020 12:03:35
Thanks for replies guys. I think that Auba allows us to play how we have been playing, direct and very dangerous on the break, but hs also makes runs in the 6 yard area like a striker. He can score headers with more consistency. Depending on fee he could be interesting. Not for silly money either in transfer or wages.

6.) 26 Mar 2020 16:05:39
who is Auba?

The Flowers of Manchester.



26 Dec 2023 19:12:43
Very happy to see a more balanced midfield today. Hopefully a little more ball control and composure with Eriksen and Mainoo. Maybe fernandes can stay in his lane a bit further forward, and hoyland will have space in the box to make his runs.

Big question now, can anyone create anything for the young lad? Can garnacho and rashford find some form?

Massive game, we need to show up.


1.) 26 Dec 2023 21:01:27
Did you tell the boys they needed to turn up? Don’t think they got the memo!

2.) 26 Dec 2023 21:52:47
Yes they did!

3.) 26 Dec 2023 22:05:00
I think they got the memo Keefy.

4.) 26 Dec 2023 23:00:42
Haha keefy,
Was guilty of a half time moan about Onana myself. Spirited second half, that's for sure.

5.) 27 Dec 2023 00:08:02
Yep. Certainly did!

Rest in peace Bobby, the very definition of a club legend.

Maybe I have a poor fashion sense, but I think EtH is quite a stylish manager.

However, we typically place managers in two camps suit manager or tracksuit manager. Seeing someone wear smart casual seems a little odd and stands out.

2.) 13 Sep 2023 11:24:38
The international break can't end soon enough clearly if we are talking about managers fashion sense.

3.) 13 Sep 2023 15:45:46
Looked like Rio Ferdinand on the famous christmas party photo when he had braids with Rooney and Jonny Evans from 2003, against Arsenal last week.

4.) 13 Sep 2023 16:19:08
Neil Warnock's tracksuits were always my favourite. He wouldn't look out of place stood outside the corner shop off Wythenshawe Park.

The Victor Meldrew look.



12 Sep 2023 01:09:00
So inexplicably Utd let Sancho issue fester for a week. Here we are a week later and they have met. Rumours of a continuing fall out, seemingly substantiated by Sancho STILL pinning his post to his social media accounts. Unbelievable.

Send sancho to rot in training on his own and ship him out at the first opportunity. Have completely had it with this player power bullshirt. Get out of our club Sancho, and take slab head with you. For some reason Southgate thinks it is appropriate for hi. To be putting pressure on utd playing McGuire more. If you like him so much, keep him training with england all season!


1.) 12 Sep 2023 06:39:16
Maguire has done nothing wrong except not be
that good. I would not be bracket him in with Sancho.

2.) 12 Sep 2023 07:04:32
Well said Dodgy.

And to think some people were advocating for Southgate to be our manager before ETH came in.

I can just see Maguire still with the armband, our top scorer sat on the bench, while we chase players like Eric Dier and spend £50m for Trippier to play left back ?‍♂️

On Sancho, the fact that post is still pinned after the players have returned to training says all you need to know. As you say, get him far away from the first team as possible, and nowhere near the youth team either. I always think it’s a bad example for the youth team if a senior player with an attitude problem is sent to train with them. If Sancho doesn’t train well, he should be nowhere near the youth team either.

The problem is that the players are too valuable these days. Although in the case of Sancho he can’t be worth more than £40m which is peanuts relatively speaking.

3.) 12 Sep 2023 07:37:07
I just don’t get sancho I really don’t, what exactly does he want or think he’s entitled to. I Fail to see what eth has done wrong and yet jadon Is acting like a spoilt toddler. We really REALLY need to spend more time researching the character and integrity of possible signings in future, ability is great but without the other attributes they’re no good. More money wasted and another position needing filled. Hopefully pellistri and later diallo can step up.

4.) 12 Sep 2023 08:40:20
Not that fussed what happens with Sancho. As it's so easy to predict our targets the press will probably drag out an out of contract former Ajax player who has some link to ten Hag to replace him. Oh hang on.

5.) 12 Sep 2023 10:11:52
It will be an interesting press conference on Friday for eth.

6.) 12 Sep 2023 14:23:48
Wonder if any part of him regrets taking the job? He should have been taking over the biggest club in the world, but has barely had a day without having to deal with off the field issues.

7.) 12 Sep 2023 17:48:18
Lvg warned him tbf.

8.) 12 Sep 2023 20:50:32
Apparently Sancho has deleted the post.

9.) 12 Sep 2023 21:07:54
Closing the stable door after the horse has bolted springs to mind red man. Think his bridges have been well and truly burned.

10.) 12 Sep 2023 22:36:45
If Sancho had kept his gob shut for just one week longer, he would be playing RW for the foreseeable. Now it'll be Pellestri and/ or Garnacho, perhaps with Bruno finishing games there.

11.) 13 Sep 2023 01:33:00
Or mount syd.

Caolin, I very much doubt Dan Ashworth is doing anything of the sort. Utd and he would be in serious risk of litigation if they were doing that. He is under contract and no doubt has non compete clauses a plenty.

do the clubs intend to have any independent governing body? Or do they want to govern themselves?


{Ed002's Note - The government not the clubs want an overseer.}

We could do with new negotiators, or they might come back from Spain with a bunch of Rapini.

How is ten hag responsible for the turmoil?

Does everyone on here want the players to run the club? Train when they want to. Turn up when they want to?

We were winning for a large part of the game.

Rash should have done better with 2 other golden chances in first 20 mins. And yes. Haaland missed 1.

Pull back on Rashford, not given. Other similar fouls given in game.

Ederson challenge is a stone wall penalty, borderline redcard.

We got beat by a better side. But going in on ten hag after that game is a little silly in my eyes. Rash was injured had to come off. Evans injured had to come off. We had nothing left on the bench to do anything. No striker, no leftback.

This squad is miles off that city team and we made a game of it. We still need to empty out the older players from this squad and start again around our younger players. Years time we are competitive again. If anyone thinks we get better by bringing in a new manager, unless you clear the players we will just delay how long it takes to get back to the top.

I would play Fernandes as false 9 and put mctominay on as a defensive 10, his main job being to stop rodri playing. But I don't think there is any magic formation Tbh, we will either fight and stick together and play hard all over the pitch, or we will capitulate and get stuffed.

Which utd will show up?

We look after varane by cutting off service to him. Easier said than done of course. Someone at the top of our midfield has to sit on Rodri - he is the player who makes them tick.

Nice switch of gears, great post.

I think your last point is critical. Forget tactics and positions etc etc. If the players just work hard, play with confidence and play with a bit more care and positive energy I think we can finish strong for the rest of the season.

City will be tough. We need to play like a squad of utd players and show them what we are made of.

Liverpool in the cup and league will be tough. But we can win these games with spirit and togetherness.

Too much doom and gloom around. We have to circle the wagons and come out fighting.
