This Director of Football rumour mill is just another example of the absolute shambles we have going on internally at the club.
We were linked with some experienced, proven DoF such as the fella's from Roma and Juve, Van Der Saar, Luis Campos who done exciting things at Monaco, even an internal appointment like Marcel Bout but now I have read Rio's name and Fletcher's name. The mind boggles.

Personally I am still happy with Solskjaer, it is so easy to say we should have gone for Poch now they are in the final however, recent form in the Premier League seems to be forgotten. I like the way Ole has been conducting himself, I like the what he has been saying. People seem to forget that this is still not his team, he was brought in to steady the ship and he overachieved in this and suddenly people get carried away and think we are fixed. We are not, there are to many ego's in the team and to many incompetent individuals internally driving the club.

If we get the wrong appointment of a DoF then no manager, Pep, Poch, even the great SAF will have problems to turn this ship around. The otherside of it is if we get the right person for DoF, will they be given the autonomy for the rebuilding of the football club. My fear is not but either way we need a strong minded, proven DoF, otherwise it doesn't matter who is the gaffer, we will just fall further and further behind the 5 teams above us and more worryingly 3 or 4 clubs below us.

Unfortunately Ports we have been liked with many highly qualified people as potential DoF, Luis Campos, Fabio Paratici, Monchi, Andrea Berta, Ralf Rangnick, Michael Zorc and Edwin van der Sar. As well as potential options who have never performed the role but could maybe step up such as Paul Mitchell or our own Marcel Bout.

Now we are being linked with Rio Ferdinand, Darren Fletcher, Paul Scholes and Patrice Evra. All good players for us, but none have held a similar role.

For me this indicates that this DoF or Technical director role won't change much if anything about how the club is being run. We have approached the best and none want it. What does that tell you? Now we are looking at ex-players with no experience. This to me suggests that what we are looking for isn't someone to come in and change things and shake things up, but someone to come in and act as a buffer between the people currently running things and the fans. Someone else to blame when it all goes wrong. Someone to do the boring day to day jobs maybe that the current people running things maybe see as beneath them or a hassle. While the big key important decisions will still be made by the same people who have been ballsing them up for the last 6 years.

{Ed025's Note - i think your right there shappy..

Good post Shappy and that's why the club ain't going anywhere.


4.) 10 May 2019 02:12:41
Guys I understand the thoughts but I don’t recall it being said that Fletcher would be the DoF. I think they were just talking ‘a role’ within the club. Given the recent diluting of United values and ethos I think having ex players around the club (who experienced the winning culture) is a good move. I like that management seems to have recognised this and is prepared to bring some back in. It has to be the right role though. A DoF should be knowledgeable about the job.


5.) 10 May 2019 10:28:34
Spot on by the way ports.


6.) 10 May 2019 16:22:38
Is it possible that the person that the club want as DOF is currently under contract elsewhere so they are keeping quiet on any rumours until the summer.
There appears to be so many different links for the past 6 months from creditable options through to completely left field.
I might and and probably am wrong but I would like it if the club are trying to stop these leaks out of the club and the work has gone on for the right person to come in.


7.) 11 May 2019 13:27:29
If we're going to have an ex-player as Dof, Roy Keane gets my vote.

Anyone know much about Upamecano and whether there’s any substance to the rumours we’re interested in him?

Ports

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of specific interest from MU but many sides have looked but the asking price has put sides off.}


1.) 09 Feb 2019 00:40:21
Apparently we had an agreement to sign him but tried to change something regarding the deal last minute and it fell through. Sound like typical journalist bull to me though.

Someone mentioned a Kohler sleeve deal a while ago and apparently the guy who brokered it let slip United have activated Griezmann’s release clause?! This was a while ago and just read United are about to announce Kohler as a sleeve sponsor for £10M a year! 😳.

Was just about to post this. Has some legs as it was posted 7 days ago.


2.) 06 Jun 2018 18:17:05
Yeah I posted about it last week. It's a rumour that certainly has some legs. Maybe as an early Christmas present ed002 can put us out of our misery and let us know if we're still interested?

{Ed002's Note - The "release clause" for Griezmann is not anything to do with Manchester United.}


3.) 06 Jun 2018 18:49:08
Thanks ed. Have United been in contact with Atletico over a deal for the player?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained their interest in the apst. Right now the player is at the World Cup and no doubt pondering the Barcelona situation. AM want him to stay.}


4.) 06 Jun 2018 19:01:07
Thanks ed! If you have the time in the future to explain "release clauses" it would be amazing. I think the general consensus of them is X player has a £50 million clause. We bid and that's that. I think this assumption stems from Football Manager. Would love more details about it when you have the time. Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax). There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a release clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties (clubs) are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that football Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes. These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club in the same country does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country, the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid and may demand a higher figure.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another and about the legal proximity of the buying side.}


5.) 06 Jun 2018 19:13:05
On another matter, I see Diogo is all over the Man Utd homepage, But no sign of Fred as yet . I thought it was all done and dusted. And who next? . I wonder.


6.) 06 Jun 2018 19:31:55
Rock - i asked the same question. It looks like we have agreed the deal with his club but no official signing.


7.) 06 Jun 2018 20:52:40
Fred passed his medical on Monday so unsure why there hasn't been an official announcement. Only thing on the club website confirms the agreement between clubs.

Funny article I read that Arsenal are looking to make a move for Fellaini on a free transfer.


8.) 06 Jun 2018 21:18:23
Its possible due to the player concentrating on Brazil where dalot isn't with Portugal!

I would guess it’s related to him needing to obtain a work permit while Dalot doesn’t.

Keep going Ronnie, to be honest you are not doing anything different from most of the tabloids. taking a punt on a player coming in with the hope that one of them is correct. Then they can claim an exclusive.
Your suggestions are just a little more random and I don't know most of them.
I enjoy everyone on here, regardless of whether we agree. Beauty of being a fan. we have differing opinions.

Evening Ed's, kudos on the Benzema shout regarding the possibility of a bid being made as this has come out in some of the media today. My question is, if possible to offer an answer or opinion would be where United would stand against other clubs in the transfer. Obviously money is not going to be an issue, I should imagine we are ahead of Liverpool but I suspect Chelsea would be interested so do any of you have any insight or heard any murmurs on who Benzema would potentially favour? I'm not sure how his relationship with Mourinho was which would be a factor. Thanks for any views.

Ports

{Ed004's Note - Impossible to answer because I don't know what Benzema thinks. If he's available a number of clubs will be interested but I can't see him leaving.}


1.) 12 May 2015 15:22:40
havent we tried to sign him in the past and he said no?

I know this will get shot down, I know the Ed’s will completely dismiss it, but I think Pogba might AND want to stay. Raiola, that’s another story!

Ports

{Ed047's Note - great idea, I’m all for it 👍🏼


1.) 20 Jan 2021 22:30:08
If he wins matches and stays committed he can stay.


2.) 20 Jan 2021 22:39:36
I would hope so, Ports. Especially if he has the same spirit and attitude. That would be the optimistic view about it.

The cynical side would be to say that he might be stepping up only because he knows it would help him get a big move and have more suitors available.

Either way, having a Pogba performing at higher standards is a win-win for us.


3.) 20 Jan 2021 23:14:19
I’m afraid the truth is he knows he’s leaving and is desperate to win the title before he goes.


4.) 20 Jan 2021 23:21:06
he as only started turning up because ther is no interest in him.


 

 

20 Jan 2021 09:37:16
Morning. I must admit, when we have been linked with a number of CB's I was surprised when Scholes came out and said we should try and get Wesley Fofana. But watching him last night for the first real time, he was excellent. Read the game well, quick, comfortable bringing the ball out, did the simple things and for a small CB, done well in the air. Can see him being in high demand very soon.

Ports

{Ed0666's Note - will take a lot of money to prize him away from Leicester. They don’t need the money and are top of the pile.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 09:49:32
Yh was a bit surprised when leicester spent such big money relatively on a 19 year old centre back and then even more surprised that he's played so many games at this stage of the season.

But he's done really well and looks to have all the attributes you need in a modern centre half. I think playing in a back 3 at the start helped him a bit with cover and also playing with jonny evans must have helped him a lot as well in adjusting to the premier league.

In hindsight what a bad move that was to let evans go considering what we've had at centre back over recent years. Mourinho would have loved to have evans at the back when he was here.


2.) 20 Jan 2021 10:04:32
Small CB? What do you mean Ports? Do you mean he is young? Or do you mean he isn't tall?

Fofana is above 6'2" so I wouldn't call him short myself. He has looked really promising so far and he is so young and has many many years to still improve.


3.) 20 Jan 2021 10:59:32
Leicester do have an amazing squad built from not spending a lot of money. Huge kudos to their scouting/ recruitment department.

Fofana is yet another success story amongst the others.

I do wish our club could pick up a point or two from them about smart acquisitions.


4.) 20 Jan 2021 11:47:56
Deependra, I thought he looked short last night. Didn't realise he was that big. For some reason he just didn't appear to be a tall, big CB. No idea why I got that impression. Haha, my bad!


5.) 20 Jan 2021 11:57:04
Leicester have a great scouting department by the looks of things.

They plucked Vardy from obscurity, signed Kante, Schmeichel, Evans, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans, Ricardo Pereira, Castagne, Mahrez, Justin, Soyuncu and of course Fofana.

While they have brought through young players like Chilwell, Choudhury and Harvey Barnes.

There recruitment has been excellent.


6.) 20 Jan 2021 12:21:07
They bought Harvey barnes from shef utd didn't they? Or was he on loan?

{Ed047's Note - he’s always been at Leicester, just out on loan a few times, WBA the last one


7.) 20 Jan 2021 12:49:55
Dodgy, Barnes has come through their academy, just loaned out a few times. Proof that sometimes loans can be what makes a player.

Although now thinking about it Leicester did sign the donkey that is Harry Maguire, so that goes against their scouting department. But kudos to their board who managed to sell him for a handsome profit 😂🤦‍♂️🤯.


8.) 20 Jan 2021 13:11:35
Shappy,

No idea how they found Schmeichel haha plucked him from obscurity.


9.) 20 Jan 2021 14:43:29
GDS, While Schmeichel may have been well known, he had failed in a battle with Joe Hart in the fight for the No.1 shirt at Man City. He then moved to Notts County and then Leeds before he made his way to Leicester City. He has since stepped up to become one of the best keepers in the league for many years.

Not obscurity like Vardy coming from non-league, but a well scouted player who suited the club and was able to step up and help them win a league title.


10.) 20 Jan 2021 14:53:17
Yeah I thought that when I read schmeichel GDS! Good post though Shappy. When you stop and think they have some great players either developed from youth or bought in young before they have the big price tag.


11.) 20 Jan 2021 18:11:46
They have good coaches.


 

 

06 Jan 2021 10:55:59
Morning. Question for everyone. We got Facundo Pellistri in, Amad Diallo is on his way and hopefully, Moises Caicedo will be arriving very soon. So who and why are people most excited by out of these 3 players?

I have no strong opinion as I can't say I have seen loads of any of them. Pellistri has looked good in the U23's but the other 2 I have only seen on YouTube (I know peoples opinions on this however I don't think it is as bad as people make out to get a basic idea of a player! )

From all this, Moises Caicedo (unfortunately the one we haven't signed yet) is the one I think looks the most exciting and probably the one who would make an impact on the 1st team quicker. Be good to hear anyones thoughts on these 3.

Keep safe.

Ports

1.) 06 Jan 2021 12:30:53
Amad Diallo

He comes from the Atalanta youth setup which has produced tons of good players in the past decade. And they seem very eager to try and keep Amad Diallo for longer period which they haven't really tried to do with other players they have sold.


2.) 06 Jan 2021 13:19:55
Ports, Caicedo does look to have all the attributes to become a complete midfielder but it's hard to predict when anyone of the players you mentioned would have an impact on our first team.

However, it seems Chelsea are keen as well as per Ed002 -
"Ed002's Note - Someone well placed at Chelsea is very keen on doing something and options have been discussed with his club already. "


3.) 06 Jan 2021 13:50:52
Diallo could make a big difference. He’s good with both feet and tactically aware for his age. Atalanta seem desperate to keep hold of him with his manager full of praise. Seems our offer is just too good for them to turn down.


 

 

17 Jun 2019 11:07:13
I think it is time we stop talking about Pogba, the guy is not worth all our attention. How about we applaud Dean Henderson and the comments he has made this weekend. This is what we need at United, someone passionate and determined to make it and who has got the talent to achieve this as well. Would be happy to see him have a season in the Premier League with Sheffield United but equally, if De Gea was to move on and Solskjaer was to give him a chance, I wouldn't be disappointed in that.

Ports

1.) 17 Jun 2019 11:29:13
I agree with you Ports, but think it would do a world of good for Henderson to play for another PL club without any pressure or expectations and gather some experience first. I think Romero can do the job for the moment provided we strengthen our defense with a CB and RB as well.


2.) 17 Jun 2019 12:36:15
Well said Ports.


 

 

14 May 2019 12:50:24
I'm struggling to understand where these Fletcher rumours for Technical Director are coming from? Apart from he was at United, why him specifically? I can imagine Rio's PR team drumming up some interest and stories for him but the Fletcher rumour just seems bizarre to me considering all the ex players we have who could also be linked. He's not that long been retired also. Is it that inconceivable that some players prepare for life after football by doing their coaching badges, has Fletcher, like Van Der Saar gone and done a masters degree in sports and brand management?

Otherwise it just baffles me where the rumour has come from!

Ports

1.) 14 May 2019 16:09:03
I don't think we should be looking at an ex player for this role. However, depending on what the role will entail I could imagine the fact that Fletcher came through our academy might be something that places him above other candidates. He does understand the inner workings from a players perspective from academy to first team. What benefit that could have depends on what his job would be.


2.) 14 May 2019 17:08:38
Its not going to be the normal "director role" that normal clubs hire someone for anyway.


We may aswell add krusty the clown the the mix to go along side coco and Ronald.


3.) 14 May 2019 17:54:31
Why appoint someone who understands the workings of the past? We should be appointing someone who will structure the workings of the future.


4.) 14 May 2019 18:16:11
Red Man, how do you build for the future if you don't know what was done in the past? Understanding what worked and what didn't work previously and why, is the starting point of any future plan.


5.) 14 May 2019 18:28:42
Shappy

We learn from history but have to build for the future. You can learn the structure as is, in fact that is what consultants do before designing a forward path, a forward strategy, the knowing how to implement it. If you bring someone in just to do the same old, nothing will change. We have to modernise with new ideas to face the football of now, not the 90’s. This is a fundamental problem and one which brings decline in many industries, the lack of willingness to accept change. It’s denial and we are in it.


6.) 14 May 2019 18:29:46
That doesn't have to be someone who came through the club though shappy does it?

It would be nice if there was someone qualified who came through the club. But Darren Fletcher and Rio are certainly not qualified.

Its ridiculous to even have their names mentioned for these type of roles.

I can't believe that people are even considering it. It just shows our clear lack of knowledge when it comes to this.


7.) 14 May 2019 18:54:21
Red man and Angel, I completely agree. I said in the first line of my reply that I don't think we should hire an ex-player for that sort of role.

I'm merely saying why the club might want an ex player for that role. I agree with Red man's analysis that you can learn the structure without ever having been involved with it.

Just pointing out why the might be looking for an ex player.


8.) 14 May 2019 19:50:03
I know, I can see the half logic in it. But an explayer should only be considered if they are truly qualified to fill such a position. It would be a dream, much like the appointment of an explayer to the managers role.

But I am in fear that even though we have wandered down a troublesome road, it is only going to get worse.

The only positive I can take right now is that Woodward is making a rod off his own back. If this fails and it most likely will, Woodward and the decision makers will be directly in the firing line.


9.) 14 May 2019 22:08:11
How do people get experience without doing it.

We've been trying for 4 years to bring someone in and have been turned down by practically everyone in European football because we haven't a clue or we're such a mess no one will touch us. Hence its ex players we're looking at.

It also depends on the role. If as Ed2 said all he's doing is coordinating scouting with what the manager needs how much experience is needed. If he's going to see potential signings to sell them United then an ex player is perfect.

We don't know what the job will be yet so let's leave the panic for another day.


10.) 14 May 2019 22:31:04
Sometimes in life its not about what you know, it's about who you know.

I’d get rid of Lukaku and a couple more and hopefully stop signing these football mercenaries. What will get us out of this mess is energy and enthusiasm to complement football talent. From what I have seen recently of James, from what I saw of Wan-Bissaka last season, these should be the blue print of our signings (hopefully we get Wan-Bissaka) .

Madrid have just signed Ferland Mendy who is a LB for £45Million. Wan-Bissaka has the best stats as a full back in the Premier League which I think we’d all agree is a tougher league than the French League. City changed the playing field when they stumped up for Mendy and Walker and Munich have splashed out on Lucas Hernandez. We get Wan-Bissaka for £60 Million and for 10 years, it’s good business.

If we are to finish 3rd though, it will obviously mean us dropping a few points between now and the end of the season which you'd have to expect, but so will City, Leicester, Liverpool, Tottenham so potentially United dropping more so what will people's views be on Solsjkaer if this is to happen?

I think we haven't won regularly, and even competed for 7 or so years, to expect the team to win, entertain, dominate is actually a lot to expect.

Let's look at Haaland as an example, does he want to be another Kane? Great career but no trophies? If United start winning trophies, however that is achieved, he will rather come to us then let's use Leeds as an example who seem, bizarly to be everyone's favourite 2nd team at the moment.

Win trophies, attract better players, play better football.

Unless we get an Alex Ferguson again (won't happen) or a lot of money to spend like City, then what you want instantly is unrealistic in my opinion. And before you point at Liverpool, they've spent Money and Klopp had time.

MancMan, I take it you didn't celebrate when we beat Ajax in the Europa League when they had 17 shots to our 7, they had 70% possession to our 30%, they had 634 passes to our 285?

It's great people's reaction AFTER the game. Before the game Liverpool were favorites with the bookies, majority of pundits predicted Liverpool to win or certainly not to lose. Mcateer said United were in a false position in the league, Souness said Liverpool would win, Owen, Lawrenson, Richards, Carragher all didn't predict a United win. All of this despite the ''injury problems'' Liverpool have even though apart from Henderson at CB, that was a strong Liverpool line up. Don't give me this nonsense Fabinho isn't a CB, the fella played 16 times at CB this season. He has over 120 games in defense in his career and over 50 at CB,

Yet in the game, Liverpool had one decent shot on target from outside the box which De Gea pulled off a save for the camera's and United had the two best chances to win the game. But because United didn't go all out attack, like Klopp wanted them to do because that would of opened up holes for Thiago to exploit, United were poor, disappointing and if you were to believe everyone, out of order! If Pogba or Fernandes or both had scored their chance and United win 1-0 or 2-0 then Solskjaer got his tactics spot on. Lindelof was excellent yet not many fans wanted him to start.

I guess it is fair to say that from these reactions, United are really starting to upset and worry people that they might, just might challenge the title this year! Do I think we will win it, really wouldn't want to make that prediction this season, do I think we are with a chance this season, 100%.
