Ed002, I see rumours surfacing about Saul to Liverpool. Can you cheer me up and tell me this is complete nonsense? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - Saul Niguez (CM) Nobody will pay his release clause but Atletico could look to a very high fee for a player who has a contract that runs for years in order to get his €300k weekly wage off the books. Bayern Munich's first choice to add for midfield and his agent has spoken with several sides as Atletico want to make very significant savings on salaries and could be forced in to a corner by the player and his agent. But Bayern see his cash price at €60M (or €75M on terms) and wages of €300k as too high and will want to negotiate - they will almost certainly turn elsewhere. He is being offered to the usual suspects who have money - Manchester United (who would need to offload Pogba), Juventus, Manchester City, PSG, Chelsea as a Kovacic replacement - many of which are looking to add a player in his position but his wages are a major issue for most. Atletico have signed his replacement. I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool at this time but he would be an excellent choice but a lot more expensive than other options.}

Hi Ed, do United retain any interest on their side as one of the few sides who could afford it (if Pogba were to go) or is it more from his representation offering him around?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but they are intent on keeping the hostage and no moving forward right now.}

2.) 08 Jul 2021 20:39:54
Club need to look at the options unless Pogba is willing to sign a new contract (unlikely and if he did it would be astronomical) . No player especially someone like Pogba will give 100% in the final year of contract through fear of injury stopping the next big payday.
Bite the bullet, either use him as part exchange for Verane or sell to PSG. Then bring in someone like Saul as a replacement or top quality holding midfielder.

3.) 09 Jul 2021 10:08:10
gotta say, a midfield of Bruno, Saul and Camavinga would be awesome. With donny, Fred, McT and Matic as backup. Replace Matic and Fred over the next 2 windows with Garner and Mejbri and we are set for 5 years.

Question for Ed002, if you’re around. You mentioned that the club can’t profiteer from a sale of Pogba due to having extended his contract, but how exactly would things work if they swapped him for someone like Varane? Would we still have to declare the ‘value’ of the deal and then negotiate with his agent or would it just go through like any other swap?

{Ed002's Note - All transfers have a value - even if they are exchanges.}

5.) 09 Jul 2021 12:49:45
Isn’t that why Barcelona and jive did the Arthur - pjanic swap at ridiculous prices.

6.) 09 Jul 2021 13:09:08
Ultimately all players have a "asset value" If United extend Pogba's contract only to use that to get a player in exchange then United will have profited to the tune of the value of that player.

So if Varane is valued at 50m then technically United have profited 50m from extending Pogba's contract.

The whole point about profiteering is that by extending Pogba's contract you are denying him and his agent the chance to earn a huge signing on fee.

Thus the club will have to agree to pay a large sum to Pogba and his agent if he is to leave this summer either for cash or as part of a player exchange.

7.) 09 Jul 2021 22:16:03
Cheers for the reply, Ed002.

8.) 12 Jul 2021 19:47:14
Isn't Varane in a similar contract situation to Pogba. In which case a swap would seem reasonable regardless of the nominal price attached. The profiteering aspect would presumably apply either to both sides or to neither.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid want cash, not cast offs.}

Creme de la menthe! Parlez-vous Norn Iron?

How to speak Norn Iron (very funny)

Cheers Eds for the accompanying video. I've never felt sympathy for the French before, but God help them if we do the unthinkable, and actually bloody qualify.

Hi Ed001. I asked you a while back about the possibility of Mata staying at the club in a coaching role. From what I remember, I think we both thought he would be suited to a role with the youngsters, but you mentioned the possibility of him going back to Spain. I see a rumour on Twitter today re. the club considering a coaching role for him, and I wondered if you'd heard further anything in that regard? Cheers ?.


{Ed001's Note - I haven't but I will ask my parents to speak to his family for you and see if that is likely.}

1.) 13 Mar 2022 21:44:10
That's a lovely thing to do. Appreciate it. It's obvious he has no role here as a player any longer, but I think he's too intelligent a guy to lose completely.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, gives them something to do.}



25 Dec 2021 03:20:40
Happy Xmas, guys and gals. Hope you all have a great time with your loved ones, and thinking of all those who can't be with us. Here's to a new era at Utd. Stay safe, folks.




11 Dec 2021 09:26:54
Ralf laying down the law. At the risk of repeating myself, I love hearing this guy talk.


1.) 11 Dec 2021 10:51:59
Love the not pandering to players, if the player wants to leave then I will not persuade him to stay.

2.) 11 Dec 2021 11:24:42
He’s really starting to shake up the club:

1. Leadership and tactics

2. Stopping jaunts while recovering

3. Psychologist

4. Making it clear to players - and accountants - that no point keeping players who want to leave

5. Better more targeted recruitment speculated if younger players who fit the tactics

6. Love idea of him sviting RBL left centre back fromCroatia : bye bye Maguire and Bailey?

Will take a few seasons to sort everything out but so refreshing now.

Shows what stagnation had set in previously!

3.) 11 Dec 2021 12:18:22
He is on record a few years back saying knowing when to sell players for the good of a club financially and for the team development is as important as buying new players.

Had he been at Utd 18 months ago you can imagine who he would have been pushing out the door as quick as possible Pogba, Lingard, Mata, Jones, Pererira, Martial would be drawing their wages elsewhere long ago.

4.) 11 Dec 2021 14:06:52
He has explained so much in little over a week without smoke and mirrors, without fumbling around his answers and with real clarity. Early days of course but I don't see any reason to be chasing his replacement, rather convincing him to stay right where he is.

5.) 11 Dec 2021 23:47:48
I'm not so sure about that spenno.
He also prefers an 'upstairs' role. He is very stretch strategic.
He has not been a very successful coach but has mentored many.
He is potentially the right man in the right place at the right time.
Who will take up the coaching duties and team management will be I hope working under a strategy set out and overseen by ralf albeit on a cusultancy basis I hope that consultancy period turns into a more permanent position.
Will it be poch or TH? Who knows ralf may have other ideas.



08 Dec 2021 23:43:40
I could listen to Ralf talk all day.


1.) 09 Dec 2021 08:26:39
Fully agree Nou
He just says it straight.



03 Dec 2021 12:06:37
Nice move by Carrick. No fanfare, classy and understated. Just like was as a player. Hope he has a good break and stays in the game.


1.) 03 Dec 2021 13:20:51
Absolutely, he's taken a lot of stick in the last few weeks, some deserved and some really not but still conducted himself in a classy manner.

One of our top midfielders in his own right and would probably start in central midfield today at age 40 considering what we have.

2.) 03 Dec 2021 14:34:44
Classy departure and did it while he had the choice to do so.6 months off then turn up at Newcastle possibly as they are desperate to overhaul their youth programme, very little home grown talent comes through there and that might appeal to him with his connections to the area.

Interesting too that Ralf is saying Ole spoke to him for almost 2 hours on phone before Chelsea game giving his views on the squad etc etc - that's classy too the fact that Ole was willing to help the new guy -usually managers don't have any crossover when one goes out and a new one comes in.

3.) 03 Dec 2021 15:50:03
No matter their ability, or lack thereof, you can't deny they're Utd men through and through. That still counts for a lot with me.

4.) 03 Dec 2021 19:32:10
Yes Noucamp99 -the club has let itself down badly a lot over the years but there are still some good things happening and there are a lot of good people at the club who we were lucky to have.

5.) 04 Dec 2021 09:53:17
Can not believe that they didn't give him an exit interview ?.

6.) 04 Dec 2021 17:58:03
Classy departure and a great record during his 7 day promotion. Still, doesn't hide the fact everyone here was baying for his and the entire coaching team's blood all season.

7.) 04 Dec 2021 18:51:55
And rightly so spenno.

Let's be honest. If it's a player we like, we make all sorts of excuses for him wanting to leave, and it's everyone elses fault. If it's one we don't like, it's the player's fault.

I wouldn't expect people to do that. I know some people think walk-outs are silly, but continuous mass walk-outs in televised games, being beamed around the world, is not a good look for the owners. Even for hard-nosed businessmen.

I like Watkins, but I think Toney is a better player if we're discussing young English forwards.

When ETH came in, everyone on here said realistically, it'll take 2, 3 or 4 windows before we're competing. As long as we played well and showed progress, most of us would be happy. Now, after one window, people are waving the white hankies. Short memories.
