Hi Ed’s

Just seen that we are looking into the possibility of getting corentin tolisso any truth in this?

Thanks for your hard work aswell we all appreciate it.


{Ed002's Note - Corentin Tolisso (CM) Bayern Munich have made the player available for sale as they look to a shake up of the team and want to clear some out in the summer - and with Gretzka, Thiago and the up and coming Cuisance all playing in the same central midfield position, Tolisso is seen as surplus. Tolisso also had a serious injury issue last season but apparently all is well now - aside from niggling stuff. His representatives fielded several requests for loans from France and England in January but, like the agents of Thomas Muller and Jerome Boateng, he knew Bayern Munich would not be doing any business over the winter. There has been a discussion with one specific French side about the possibility of a summer move and the lady involved says they may just be interested if a suitable price was proposed given the injury history. There has also been a discussion with Napoli as a potential Fabian Ruiz replacement - but they are still sorting themselves out from their problems and have no immediate interest. If the price suits it is expected Arsenal will be approached to see if previous interest remains given the situation with Dani Ceballos - but right now they are heading in a different direction as well as they smart from financial mismanagement. A return to Lyon will no doubt have been discussed with the player but even if they let Houssem Aouar leave this coming summer the addition of the vesatile Bruno Guimaraes will already have covered that. Inter could add an option if money is OK there. He has additionally had surgery on his ankle which is keeping him out of the squad now the season has started again. I am not aware of an approach from Manchester United but he could be a cheaper option to the likes of Saul and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic if POgba were to leave.}



18 Jun 2019 14:43:23
Dunno if anyone has said this already and I know it’s sly sports but they’re reporting we’ve put a 36m bid in for youri tielemans.

Ed’s do you know if this is happening?

Thanks all.


{Ed002's Note - He was a target for Mr Mourinho and bereft of other ideas he has been of interest - I am not aware of any offer at this point in time.}

1.) 18 Jun 2019 17:00:20
I hope this one is true. Would instantly improve our midfield.

{Ed002's Note - By letting Pogba leave.}

2.) 18 Jun 2019 17:04:42
I hope Pogba leaves.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 17:48:07
Me too, instead of giving him more money just get rid of the guy already, he isn't that good. Sometimes i wonder how much Scholes would be worth in this crazy market. get energetic midfielders and most importantly people who want to be here.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 17:16:49

I hope Pogba leaves to be honest. He seems unhappy, doesn't want to be here and doesn't really provide a balanced midfield and limits us tactically. Certainly not the hardest worker on the pitch.

There is no point in keeping unhappy players who want to leave. I wish we followed a policy like Chelsea do in that they let unhappy players go and just try to get the best deal possible. They don't even seem worried about letting players go within the EPL.

Pogba's transfer fee and wages could be reinvested to bring in a couple of midfielders and build a much more balanced hard working midfield.

Are PSG interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that MU are picing him so high that the interested sides are going to step back. PSG have other preferences right now and they see hom as expensive.}

5.) 18 Jun 2019 18:49:44
Ed002, yeah if he’s Pogba’s replacement then great. I still think we’d need another midfielder on top of Tielemans or Bruno Fernandes if Pogba was to leave.
I’d like us to go for Doucouré from Watford.

{Ed002's Note - 12 a side next year then?}

6.) 18 Jun 2019 19:34:42
That improve our defence, probably.

7.) 18 Jun 2019 20:35:04
Just saw online Juventus put in bid for £140 million for Pogba
I don't know if I should laugh or cry?
I would take it if part of the deal would be to take Mr Sanchez off our books.

8.) 18 Jun 2019 22:52:34
Imagine pogba under saf, he'd be long gone, I like osg's transfer strategy, I just hope he can survive the bad times that are coming and improve his management, dark times are ahead for us, belief is what makes us strong and I believe osg will lead us if given the chance, pogba, Lukaku, martial, rojo, darmaian, get rid, smalling, Jones are united no matter there quality, young English and hungry is perfect way forward, what English lad doesn't want to play for United, sheer clear of raiolas players and find the next scholes Keane Neville Bruce pallister Irwin Cole sheringham giggs Beckham and a shearer who regrets what he could of had, Ferdinand the greatest defender in EPL history, vvd couldn't touch that boy in his prime, trophies say it all, even vidic should be laughing, our success is built on British players with a sprinkle of foreign magic, same as Liverpool's dominance in the 70s and 80s.

9.) 19 Jun 2019 00:01:21
Difficult to understand why United are targeting all of these ‘Mourinho targets’ when OGS has a different style to that of Jose. What is the plan? Surely there must have been some sort of arrangement on strategy when OGS was appointed to the managerial post. Baffling.

10.) 18 Jun 2019 19:55:11
002 I know you don’t like to speculate but can you see this situation being resolved? Surely it’s bad business to keep him, for reasons on both sides.

{Ed002's Note - MU should let him go for the best reasonable deal they can get and move on. It has to happen.}

11.) 19 Jun 2019 00:52:54
I hope Pogba leaves too.

12.) 19 Jun 2019 09:30:34
Fergie got rid of him. Enough said.

13.) 19 Jun 2019 09:41:05
Maze, I don't think it works like that. Ole and the other coaching staff will decide what they feel the squad needs, this will be be passed on to the chief scout and they will organise having players scouted to find players who fit the criteria.

The club builds up dossiers on many players. Players are in the main able to adapt and play in many different ways. When Ronaldo played for us, or Real Madrid, or Juventus or Portugal he has been asked to play different roles in different ways. As such it's not that surprising that the club are still interested in some of the players they were under Jose Mourinho.

However, currently the club have only signed one player Daniel James a player that was not of interest under Jose. So clearly there have been some changes.

But have the needs of the squad changed that much? We still need a commanding CB, we need more mobility in midfield, we are lacking a wide player who can go around the outside.

14.) 19 Jun 2019 07:18:25
Thank you Ed. Surely his position is untenable now.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to leave.}

15.) 19 Jun 2019 14:00:36

Completely agree with you. Just get the best deal and move on.

It would also allow us to move quickly for potential replacements like Rabiot and Tielemans instead of putting those on hold and risk losing out if we drag the Pogba situation too long and then end up losing Pogba and getting neither.

There is a very good argument to be made that we would be better off with Rabiot/ Longstaff, Tielemans and Bruno Fernandes / James Maddison in the squad instead of Pogba.

Similarly with Lukaku, are United pricing him out of a move as well? Reports have been coming out about Inter wanting to include Icardi/ Perisic and we aren't interested in either.

{Ed002's Note - MU will struggle to replace Lukaku so they know they must initially not look to sell.}

tell you what this relegation battle we're in is tough to watch. let's hope we can make that 40 point threshold in order to stay up.


1.) 24 Jan 2020 14:59:06
If Martial gets injured, we may well end up in relegation scrap.

The problem is, the transfer windows shuts, no signings means were up the creek without a paddle.

Perhaps this needed to make the Glazers realise that Woodward and co aren't running the club properly.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 15:37:25
If Martial gets injured it might just be a blessing in disguise, he lacks everything you need to be a top player. he's amazing 1 game then mediocre the next 5.
I would much rather play Greenwood who actually knows where the back of the net is.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:40:04
Herbie- it won't be a blessing disguised or otherwise

united offer very little attacking threat as it is.

Everyone has their own likes and dislikes for players which is fair enough but I do feel when people judge martial they judge him against the wrong types of player.

Martial isn't a number 9 like a Vardy, a play on the shoulder, fox in the box style 9.

He is more a false 9 a bit more like a firminio, a link man, if we played 2 up top he would be comparable to a 10 compared to firminio martial is doing well and doing the role he is asked to do.



16 Jun 2019 09:10:24
All I see here are massive money signings people want or slating maguire but has anyone thought of giving Tuanzebe a chance. He looks physically ready, won promotion with Aston Villa and has had John Terry coaching him. I think we should atleast see how he gets on before signing someone for 60m plus.


{Ed004's Note - I don't think Tuanzebe is ready yet. The ideal situation for us would be Villa wanting him back for the new season to partner Mings again. He needs to improve his ability in the air and positioning. Hes very quick, good tackler and a brilliant passer but his other areas would get targetted at United}

1.) 16 Jun 2019 09:39:39
Agree with 004 here except for the opinion on passing. I think he’s fairly awkward on the ball at times, and often when he dribbles forward he doesn’t seem to have the confidence to play the forward pass, often stopping and turning around to play the ball to his nearest team mate. I think another year at Villa is what he needs so he can get regular game time at a higher level. Hopefully the additional pressure and lack of time in possession will bring on his passing and decision making. Physically he’s ready, good pace and strong in the tackle.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 09:58:24
I would Love Tuanzebe to come in and have a crack at the whip. However, unless we shift a few players he will likely start further down the pecking order. What is vital for him is he plays regularly at EPL level next season.

So either Ole has to take the chance with him and appreciate he will make mistakes as he develops and the team will have to take those mistakes on the chin. But play him every week regardless, or he needs a loan out to a EPL club where he will play every week.

Same goes for Dean Henderson. Both Henderson and Tuanzebe have potential to be future starters at our club, but both need to be playing EPL football every week next season to build on there development from this season. So maybe loans back to Villa and Sheifield United are best for them.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 10:29:25
Id loan them both out.

Tuanzebe to Villa for another season. Release Rojo. Bring in Toby or other option. Next summer move on Smalling and Jones probably Bailly as well. Bring back Tuanzebe.

Sell de Gea this summer go with Romero. Loan Henderson.

4.) 16 Jun 2019 11:45:56
Gazza do you want to win the league or exist in the league? If it is the latter please think before posting lunacy.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 13:01:03
Totally agree with Wazza. I watched all Villa's matches in the run in. Tuanzebe, passed the ball very poorly. He's nowhere near ready to be first choice, but i would rather have him as cover instead of Jones, Rojo or Bailly.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 13:41:01
Ed004 I completely agree.
I mentioned a couple of weeks back my concerns re: early signings etc and was criticised for expecting much too early. For me, the writing has been boldly written on the wall for some time. We need to lose the big egos ASAP and EW. Only then will things begin to get better.

{Ed004's Note - I wouldnt be against selling Pogba if we had already gotten in Bruno and a holding midfielder cause then Pogbas funds would just go straight to his replacement. Now teams know we will have a big influx of cash and we will again have to overpay even more}

7.) 17 Jun 2019 07:16:43

Yes of course I want to win the league but any Manchester United fan that thinks we’re even close to challenging is very short on football knowledge.

We are a good 2 years/ 3 transfer windows away from getting a team together that can challenge. That also relies on the right people being brought in and the wrong people being shipped out.

This isn’t lunacy and I’ll post what I like within the rules of this chat. It was a question I thought I’d ask as I value everyone’s opinion in here.



26 May 2019 17:24:41
So guys with the transfer window open and rumours flying about I’ve jumped on to football manager and sent my scouts all over the place. Here’s what I think

Centre back - Dayot Upamecano
Consistent player with pace and good technical ability. Young aswell.

Right back - Aaron Wan-Bissaka
No description needed!

Defensive Midfielder- Sandro Tonali
Looks like the complete centre midfielder. Has a release clause of 23.5 million. Potential next Pirlo (maybe it’s just the hair)

Houssem Aouar - this kid can create, score, dribble and defends even though he’s more attack minded. Made Pep take note when Man City played Lyon.

Central Midfielder - James Maddison
Great talent, work rate very high, scores, assists and doesn’t change his hair or practice stupid celebrations. (Like that rubbishhouse pogba)

Right Wing - Federico Cheisa
Work rate, fast, great deliveries and scores goals too. Very good player that has gone under the radar

Striker - Timo Werner
Unbelievable pace, acceleration, rides tackles, very good in front of goal, high work rate too. Bin off lukaku and his trampoline touch and get this guy in

And with that my scouting is complete. Man Utd win the league and everyone will forget this post

Your welcome

Ed’s thank you for your hard work it is always appreciated 😊.


{Ed001's Note - what about Konate as the centre back? He looks like he could be a better bet than Upamecano of the two.}

1.) 26 May 2019 20:29:52
This is my thoughts
Sell ddg Bailly pogba Matic Sanchez martial lukaku bringing in around 300m
Sign Donnarumma alves De Ligt Rabiot kroos bale icardi
50m. Free. 65m. Free. 45m. Loan. Swap with lukaku then get a few youngsters like Dias zaniola aouar Pepe.

2.) 26 May 2019 22:10:44
United83 including Bale atm discards the acceptance of your post.

3.) 26 May 2019 21:18:31
I think we should just play the women's team instead.

They did brilliantly this season. Just gutted they released Charlie Devlin.

4.) 26 May 2019 22:23:25
Yep united83 and then turn the playstation off.

5.) 26 May 2019 22:48:30
I don’t play PlayStation too busy on the field playing mate unlike u! Also why wouldn’t u take bale on a 2 year loan similar to James Rodriquez for say 10m I’m sure with a change of environment where he is wanted he would get back to slightly his best and much better than Lingard martial Sanchez.

6.) 27 May 2019 04:58:14
Donnarumma alves De Ligt Rabiot kroos bale icardi

Not good enough, far too old, wants Barca, ego, too slow, too injury prone, massive attitude and problem wife.

So you want to bring in a load of overseas expensive signings only one of which has premier league experience, all will demand huge wages especially considering the lack of champions league football.

This kind of scattergun approach to signings is why we are in such a mess. These are not the kind of players to dog in and bring us back to the top. The only one of those I wold want at United is the one player that wants to go elsewhere in DeLigt.


7.) 27 May 2019 05:08:09
U83. Bale can't stay fit and his wages will cause further troubles for United.
There are much better options than Bale.

8.) 27 May 2019 07:27:24
Come on then Air Force red what would u do! Those players are proven and not the wrong side of 30.

9.) 27 May 2019 08:49:05
Sorry guys I posted this just because of all the over exaggeration when it comes to transfers lol

Truth be told the ed’s give us some insight into who we are looking at but after that it’s all about the newspapers or sly sports which we all both know blow a lot of smoke and only come out with the truth when the clubs release the statement. It’s an exciting time to be a united fan as we will get back to before let’s just embrace it.



14 Jun 2017 00:16:52
With all this talk about signing morays for 73m, belotti for 84m and mbappe for 100m would people not prefer us to look at the premiership spend 75m on Kane, who's proven in the premiership and is english.


{Ed004's Note - Try doubling that figure for Kane then Levy might consider negotiations}

1.) 14 Jun 2017 01:12:38
And good luck convincing Kane to leave HIS club, which is competing better than us at the moment.

He could well be a clubman if they stay near top of the league for next few years.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 04:15:53
The cash is crazy. It isn't even inflation anymore it is senseless spending. I would like to see a worldwide salary cap and transfer expenditure cap.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 04:47:07
Sometimes people amaze me. Even if Harry Kane is not having amazingly prolific returns taking away all attacking accolades for two consecutive seasons, being English and excitingly young how on earth do you expect Daniel Levy to sell him to us for £75M?

I'll put it down for you;
Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi will cost more than Harry Kane (and not because he's better than the rest) .

I'll give you a list of players currently not as expensive as Harry Kane.

Mbappe* also overpriced
Di Maria
Alexis Sanchez
Diego Costa
Andre Silva.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 10:10:31

It isn't really to do with inflation though it's to do with the clubs making more money so therefore having more money to spend and also clubs having more money so not needing to sell to balance the books. Therefore only large amounts need to be paid. I'm sure you understand supply and demand and supplier power and buyer power, they are nothing to do with inflation.

5.) 14 Jun 2017 10:25:29
Dodgy Banter, do you really think Spurs is competing better than us at the moment? They may have finished above us in the league but we won 2 trophies, one of which they were also in contention for.

6.) 14 Jun 2017 10:37:28
Not this again.

7.) 14 Jun 2017 11:57:41
GDS2 I am sorry mate but if you think it has nothing to do with inflation then you need to take up a night class in economy.

8.) 14 Jun 2017 12:28:24

My point is that we are starting to act like the filthy whore of the premier league.

Doesn't seem to matter that Kane does not want to leave, or that Tottenham do not want to sell. Just throw $100 bills at them both and eventually they will all change their mind. It is everything wrong with modern football.

We want players who want to come and play for us. Not mercenaries.

They could look at it as an opportunity.

The world cup is in Qatar and would need to be played in the winter months as it is too hot in the summer. therefore by finishing the season when they can and then moving the next season on a few months it would be beneficial to them.

Say they won't be able to play football til july there is 10 premier league games per team, 3 games from the fa cup, 6 from europa league,6 from champions league. 25 games for teams still in the competitions stated.

even if they played 2 games a week your still looking at 3 months which would take you to end of october. You then have the off season so that would effectively move the new season to january or february depending on time they allow for offseason.

Then that off season becomes available for the world cup!

BOOM instant money going to FIFA, UEFA and all the FA's.

I’d love to have De Ligt he’s unbelievable. I watched one of their games when I went to Amsterdam and Ajax were so comfortable with him at the back they all went forward and he stayed back on his own. He drills players when needed and if anyone saw they’re celebration just look at his speech. The kid for me is the full package and I’d take him in a heartbeat.

Have to say for me it would be Grealish, Sancho and Jimenez

More creativity added to Fernandes and a bit of a presence up front

That said if Sancho or Grealish don’t want to come I’d love a player like ndidi or maybe someone young enough maybe Camavinga, Soumare or Tonali they all look like great players that will develop.

If your throwing out those stats Scooby then you could also throw in this one.

Outside of the top 4 teams josh king has scored more premier league goals than anyone bar vardy. In a Bournemouth team that doesn’t really create.

Yeah some threat that is let’s bin him off because he isn’t a shiny high profile player that only came to us because of money.

For one we have a lot of youth players making debuts and getting first team football.

Rashford looks to have stepped up another gear

The new signings are settling well and look to be good additions to the team

We are currently 5th while not being consistent and having a lot of injuries

One of our youth team players is having a blinder on loan in dean Henderson

We are still in the FA Cup, Carabao cup (ATM atleast), still in europa league too. So although it’s a long shot we can still secure top 4 and win a trophy maybe two.

Positive enough for you MancMan?

Makes me laugh when i read this. Now i'm not saying Sanchez will come back and be amazing but how many people that slated him on this thread will carry on slating him if he starts next season on fire?

We as fans never slated any united player we backed them 100% no matter what. we left the slating of players to the money bag Chelsea fans or arsenal fans moaning. Now we are the exact same fans that we laughed at. Talk about people saying "WE ARE MAN UTD THOUGH" is irrelevant if we don't uphold the traditions we always have of standing together and backing our players no matter how good or bad they are.

i used to come on here a lot more because of the chats going on but with it being ridiculously negative i find myself deciding not to come on or post

Hi ken,

I always like reading your posts but on this occasion I’m abit bemused as to what players you are on about.

If you mean Lingard then it isn’t his specific job to score or assist he’s there to link play together and get between the lines. Do I think he should score more? Yes. Should he assist more? Yes. But as for him not contributing I think he does a good job.
