Ed002 if you're not doing a sharkopod then can I ask if there looks to be several ins-and-outs (2 or 3, say) this winter. I know it's usually not a time for major movements but there are serious leaks to plug - mainly in central defence and midfield - that left alone could leave us well out of the top 6, nevermind top 4 very soon.

{Ed002's Note - I really don'tr want to get involved too much on this page for a while. Too much grief.}

Ed 02
Sorry to see your voice of insight and sanity disappear yet again.

I understand and respect your decision but am disappointed - not in you but in the fact you will be greatly missed.
I will say thanks and Au revoir in the hope you will return.

Ed will return just let the situation with Mourinho clear up.

Ed001, I saw you mentioning that we're looking at loads of players and that centre backs are being prioritised along with a marquee/ vanity signing. Which positions do you think we should be looking at.

From my perspective, I think there are lots of deadwood in the squad but for the first team picture we could have
de Gea/ suitable replacement; Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, New Signing 1, Shaw; New Signing 2, Schneiderlin/ Herrera; New Signing 3, Mata/ Herrera, Martial; New Signing 4
with Romero, CBJ, Darmian, Varela, Blind, Pereira, Lingard, Rashford being the key squad players to rotate in and out to this side. Most of the rest of the squad could be sold to fund the new signings. Is there any solid rumours on which players are being moved on?

{Ed001's Note - thinking about it, I have not heard anything regarding outs, other than De Gea. I will have to ask, as there must be at least one or two on the move, other than him.}

Ed001 is de gea off from what you hear? I think we need to keep him. how many other keepers make the saves as consistently as save? He's our best player week in week out we need to build a decent defence for him.

{Ed001's Note - it is the most likely scenario. Not 100%, well nothing is, but they are not expected to make a mere token gesture this summer.}

Bolger2 I wasn't aware of the racist allegations re Arnautovic. If true obviously we should steer clear.

Rabiot is 27 and is a very good player. His technique is miles ahead of McFred. He'd be a major upgrade. He's not a backup player at Juve. He's a starter for all his time there. Arnautovic would be signed as a squad player. Not ideal but he did really well with Bologna last year. Don't get the doom and gloom about those two.

Jeez RedWhiskey, there's no need for that.

I'd disregard the notion of Maguire being club captain as meaning that he's a nailed on starter. Varane will definitely start if fit. Also not clear at all that Martinez will play at CB. He may be looked on as a CDM. The way Ten Hag team's play there is always a CDM or full back that slots into CB when the team is attacking to maintain the lines.

Rangnick was here as a coach and did a bad job. There wasn't a director role for him, that's the problem but no surprise it didn't work out.

Not what he said.

He didn't really. He had issues with Maguire constantly moving across and not trusting his teammates/ not having enough awareness. Varane alongside him would show that.

Fergie is on the board. Of course his input on such matters would be sought out. I'm surprised that's even a discussion point for some. What would be wrong is if he interfered in team selection, or pressured Ten Hag into keeping players he doesn't otherwise want.

Ken you're one of the most level headed lads here so I'm genuinely surprised you take that viewpoint. In any walk of life people will sometimes not do as well as others want, but showing support can change things. It is simply ludicrous to suggest that the sound of boos is the metric by which a club should judge satisfaction with performance.
