Hi Ed002, who is the youngster Manchester United were speaking to yesterday you referenced on the European pages please?


{Ed002's Note - It is the same player I have mentioned before. Isaac Lihadji (RW) kiddie from Marseille who is attracting interest of several sides - had not been interested in joining MU but the club has persisted and has spoken with Marseille to see if something can be done to appease the player and pay compensation.}



19 Nov 2019 14:07:07
Hi Ed002, do you know which attacking targets we are showing interest in at the moment?


{Ed002's Note - It is as I have previously said.}



07 Mar 2019 22:24:30
Ed002 is joao felix well thought of as a player? Can't say I know much about him but would love to get some insight.


{Ed002's Note - Yes he is very well thought of, but the asking price is well beyond unrealistic.}

1.) 08 Mar 2019 18:52:52
I’ve never seen him play either but hear such great things.

Anyone know where he would fit into the team? Competition for Lingard?

2.) 08 Mar 2019 21:11:59
I've seen him a few times. He would be best in a free role either wide or behind the strikers similar to where/ how Lingard plays but with more cutting edge going forward and less work defensively.

However, in no way is this lad ready for the EPL. He makes Angel Gomes look like a bouncer. He needs another couple of years in Portugal to fill out and develop further.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 13:06:57
Thanks mate.



14 Jun 2018 14:08:06
Who remembers a few years back when Ed002 said Chelsea had backed away from interest Griezmann because he talks too much to the media? Looks like he was right, airing his 'decision' tonight. Ridiculous stuff.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 14:53:35
Might be an unpopular opinion, especially with the football traditionalists, but this stuff doesn't bother me at all. It's the way the sport is going, it's the way some American sports have been for a while. What a player does on social media, on TV doesn't affect what he does on the pitch.

He's a massive basketball fan, he's doing what LeBron James did 8 years ago and just as every NBA team would have been better with LBJ every football team would be better with Griezmann.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 16:53:17
Lebron James is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time and is at least in the discussion with Jordan and he was a free agent. If Messi were a free agent right now I'd be fine with it. Griezmann is a very good player who isn't a generational talent - he hasn't earned the ego.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 16:54:10
Seem to recall hazard chose to announce on twitter that he was joining Chelsea and not 1 of the Manchester clubs.

4.) 14 Jun 2018 20:59:21
Griezmann stays.

5.) 14 Jun 2018 21:08:14
Talented player but glad he's staying he's nothing but a self-obsessed dickhead.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 21:10:15
He annoys me tbh a very good player but like the above post touches on not nearly good enough to warrant this kind of nonsense.

7.) 14 Jun 2018 21:49:14
Well after that farce he looks like an ever bigger prick. Glad he's staying.

8.) 14 Jun 2018 22:22:51
Tell us how you really feel though Dave 😂.



28 May 2018 09:07:10
Ed001 - talk to me about Gareth Bale, I know he's going to be offered here and is interested in United but are we interested in him? Spurs have first refusal correct? I'd be surprised to see Levy willing to pay what it takes.


{Ed001's Note - previously United were interested but Madrid did not want to sell. I can't see why they would have dropped their interest in him now. Imagine Woodward clinching that signing, it would enable him to ask for so much more when Yanmar want to put United's name on their next tractor.....}

1.) 28 May 2018 09:54:50
Tractors are great for making bales.

{Ed001's Note - oh damn I am gutted I never thought of that one!}

2.) 28 May 2018 10:13:35
Lol DP that is good.

3.) 28 May 2018 11:38:05

4.) 28 May 2018 12:41:07
Never understood the snarkiness about sponsorship. No club cna do without it now. Which PL club would turn down money from a tractor company or noodle partner. they might intimate they would and their fans might say they would but they wouldnt. Every club does it.

Money is money. Arsenal signed a sleeve deal for visit rawanda, suppodedly for 30 mill, whilst Rawanda receive foreign aid from UK? How well does that sit with football fans

First club shop not UTD

First club to commercially tour China. not UTD

First club to commercially tour USA . not UTD.

First club to have in house TV channel. not UTD

First club to have shirt sponsorship, ground naming, sleeve sponsorship . not UTD

Most expensive season tickets in PL. not UTD

Most expensive season tickets in old first divison . not UTD. cheaper than Coventry city to name one of 7

Most expensive season tickets in old second division. not UTD.

5.) 28 May 2018 14:54:01
BoyfromBurrenway - I think you are looking at it the wrong way mate for this particular point. Nobody should have a problem with the club making the most of it's brand to gain sponsors.

The problem is when those sponsorship deals come first, ie, tractor sponsor says to the club we will sponsor you for X amount if you sign Bale! Or there are two potential signings, one is more suited to the team, but the other is more financially beneficial sponsorship wise - where do you think we would go?

The sense I get and I assume many others get, is that we would tend to choose money making as a short-term priority. You can get both of course but that is why people can be a bit 'snarky'.

6.) 28 May 2018 16:00:46
Fair point, well made Beast. Its getting harder and harder to seperate business/ football and to a degree celebrity/ entertainment/ showbiz.

I can remember a time when every club had a commercial office or a deal maker. you just never knew who they were. Woodward/ Levy etc etc are high profile figures now, something that doesn't sit well with me.

7.) 28 May 2018 18:14:43
That’s because previously they never really needed and let’s be honest, everyone knew who the chairman was of their own club as well as others.

Let’s also be honest, does anyone have any experience working in a global business negotiating these deals? IF you do, and I for one do too, you’ll know just how hard they are not only to find, but also to get them signed up. I have a lot of respect for Woody, whose sole objective is to make us as profitable as possible as well as negotiate with greedy agents and players every day.

8.) 29 May 2018 07:46:54
Danny that was classic 🤣🤣👍👏.

9.) 29 May 2018 08:03:19
A round of applause from me danny that properly made me chuckle 😂👏.

Hi Ed002, is it still possible for MUFC to meet the fee that Dortmund want for Sancho in this window or are we now past the point at which Dortmund would accept an offer?


{Ed002's Note - It would be down to Dortmund to decide.}

1.) 28 Sep 2020 11:08:44
Get the feeling that Ed and Matt are going to look very stupid very soon. amateur hour is upon us i think. let's hope they've read the situation correctly!

2.) 28 Sep 2020 11:32:31
I hope they don't accept, the more pressure on Woodward and Judges shoulders the better at this point. And when the team fails this season they will be in the sh it.

{Ed047's Note - I like what you did at the end there Dan! 🤣



10 Jul 2020 10:48:31
We've had Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool fans in here on the windup since we started playing well - they are rattled boys let's keep it up!


1.) 10 Jul 2020 11:32:10
Absolutely, I love it.

2.) 10 Jul 2020 12:46:22
RedRosie That's what I've been saying and I'm loving it, very excited about next season, I'm not saying we are going to be champions but if we keep this form we are getting closer to Liverpool and City, 2 more Bruno signings (quality wise) and we could hit more nerves lol.

3.) 10 Jul 2020 12:47:51
Btw the Amateur one gets it right, He knows the Utd way, good thing we got rid of the "parking the bus" one, I couldn't stand him anymore.



10 Jul 2019 11:46:49
Hi Ed002 - do you think we are going to be stupid enough to price Pogba out of the move away that he wants? I know the papers tend to make figures up but the numbers that are floating about seem astronomical!


{Ed002's Note - I hope so.}

1.) 10 Jul 2019 15:15:11
Ed, I probably understand that you hate or dislike a lot of United fans, and it’s completely fair. But you do genuinely dislike the club as well?

{Ed002's Note - Is this because I told you the truth and de Ligt won’t be joining? Seemingly all of the vegetables are out today embarrassing themselves. Moron.}

2.) 10 Jul 2019 15:15:22
Why do you hope we are stupid enough to price ourselves out of a move then Ed 😂?

{Ed002's Note - Then the moronic fans can celebrate the players they want going elsewhere whilst they get lumbered with players who have zero interest in the club.}

3.) 10 Jul 2019 15:35:46
Spot on Ed. Why keep pogba when we doesn’t want to be here? Cut ties and bring in players who want to fight for the shirt. It’s not rocket science.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 17:19:58
I hope we sell pogba now and draw a line under it, the same with Sanchez, we need to move on and invest in the areas that need it most.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 17:21:31
Seemed a fair and politely expressed question Raghav.

6.) 10 Jul 2019 18:59:23
Should we address posts to @Ed002 or @MinoRaiola?

7.) 10 Jul 2019 19:44:21
I don't! But I also won't be surprised.

8.) 10 Jul 2019 16:30:23

I understand what you mean about not being able to bring in a replacement until he goes and with every day gone in the market it becomes harder to secure a replacement as they won't wait for us and would want to sort out their future.

Was Tielemans a similar case where United didn't push for a move as Pogba hasn't gone yet and he decided to move to Leicester instead of waiting on a United offer?

{Ed002's Note - YT was never going to be moving gto MU.}

9.) 10 Jul 2019 17:17:37
Ed are there any players at Madrid we would be interested in signing I was thinking like the youngsters who don’t get any game time that you might be aware of?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I can think of.}



27 Jun 2019 10:37:12
Morning Ed002 - hypothetical for you. As both Leicester and us are interested in Tielemans is it likely this would affect any discussion with Leicester over Maguire? For example would Leicester push for us to drop our interest in Tielemans if we want to sign Maguire? Or does this sort of thing not happen and clubs treat each transfer separately?


{Ed002's Note - It is not uncommon for clubs to ask other clubs to step back from interest during negotiations but Leicester are not in that position as they don't want to sell Maguire for anything but an excessive figure.}

1.) 27 Jun 2019 11:39:51
Appreciate the response Ed002. Interesting to note.



07 May 2019 12:40:00
So going by Ed002's last list our midfield targets are all unlikely or going elsewhere. Fernandes and Rodrigo to City, Rakitic likely staying where he is and Saul is only a possibility if Pogba leaves. Can't see Pogba leaving as I doubt anybody will be willing to pay what we perceive as reasonable.

Times are tough it seems. Not really sure how our scouting system works but let's hope there are other targets in mind.


1.) 07 May 2019 12:47:08
If pogba stays that can be turned into a positive if we durinf him with the right players.
Ie overlapping full backs attackers with sound tree niall ability and outstanding movement and midfielders that can look after the ball and are tecnically and tactically sound. It works for france and worked for juve. We don't have those players so oogba doesn't shine.

2.) 07 May 2019 12:50:02
Apparently Danny Drinkwater is available and knows the club.

3.) 07 May 2019 12:56:28
I'd sooner have TC23 Mort.

4.) 07 May 2019 12:58:13
Danny welbeck is available on a free too.

5.) 07 May 2019 13:09:06
I think Kroos will be targeted. A precious favourite of Woodward whose still in the driving seat.

Would love N’Didi based on this seasons peformances for his drive and energy.

6.) 07 May 2019 13:11:37
Thats the problem with essentially wasting or stagnating for 7 years. Even if we do rebuild “successfully” the likes of city could still widen the gap between us and them if they continue recruiting effectively and efficiently.

On pogba, ed002 has said on the european pages that juve could offer a few players to exchange or fund a move for pogba. Cancelo, dybala and pjanic i think.

I would take cancelo and dybala for pogba, whether its a swap deal or seperate moves and go back to 4-4-1-1 with dybala off of rashford or martial.

7.) 07 May 2019 13:14:08
Declan Rice and Ruben Neves would be ones for me.

8.) 07 May 2019 14:00:15
Doherty / munier / cancelo (most likely munier as i have high hopes for Dalot)
Alderwiereld / Milenkovic (hopefully both, but unlikely)
David brooks/ tielemans (tough - but both are good herrera replacements esp. if they don't need to carry pogba's defensive work)
Saul (if pog-goes-back, has everything in him to be the heart of this team)
if lukaku/ sanchez/ mata leave - jota / zaha / malcom (that barcelona chap may want to leave esp. if they are considering salah as an option) . Might even give Arjen Robben a cheeky 2 year deal?

Starting 11 of DDG/ romero, munier, milenkovic, lindelof, shaw, matic, brooks, saul, martial, rashford and zaha is not a bad place to start - bench - romero / periera, dalot, smalling, fred, mctominay, greenwood, lukaku/ sanchez/ mata / robben;

top 4 may still be a stretch but its a talented young group without the big egos so solkjaer can mould them into a hard working team capable of flashes of brilliance. We are still missing a world class striker to bring off the bench (giroud? ), but i doubt we will change more than 5 of the first team this window.

9.) 07 May 2019 14:02:45
Ed002 has also said we don't want to do horse trading so player plus cash deals seem unlikely as well. Honestly no idea what happens this summer. Could be a huge mess.

10.) 07 May 2019 14:03:08
Pogba staying would not be a positive. Getting ‘the right players around him’ is another way of saying we should bring in players who cover for Pogba’s lack of work rate. Italy is a slower league, and Juve still had mids covering for him.

This is a player who wants out of the club, can’t be arsed most of the time, and is setting a terrible example for younger players. When Jose was fired, Pogba put in some top class performances just to show Jose he was wrong about him. After he proved his point, he went straight back to doing the bare minimum.

There is zero point in keeping him at the club, and he would be a nightmare to deal with if he’s denied his dream move to Real.

11.) 07 May 2019 14:29:48
Danny i agree with all if that. No argument from me there at all.
But let's remember 1 thing. Ole will be left with players that he wants or even they themselves want to move on but we can't for whatever reason.
Its how ole manages those players going forward will be key to or success.
Rojo we can't find a buyer its not too dificult a situation you just leave him on the fringes picking up his wages.
But with pogba its going to be a different problem.
Sanchez a different problem again.
Does he want to keep lukaku martial?
They can't all leave. So the best he can do is blend the squad around who he has to keep.
Personally i'm up for a huge clear out ddg pogba martial mata herrera rojo valencia darmian jones.
Sign trippier tierny aldewiereld saul tielmans bale cavani this window. Plus youth and returning loanees) with henderson and romero competing for no1
Next summer look to sancho maddison neves if they all continue to impress and we are back in cl and maybe cup winners.
In the snr pros we recruit we must look to recruit players of the right character that want to embrace the challenge of putting united back in the higher echelons. Embrace the challenge of bring talented young players through alongside them.
Who fits that bill? I think the 3 mentioned are possibilities. Kroos?
Players who have won the lot but are still good enough and motivated enough to embrace a new challenge.

12.) 07 May 2019 14:32:41
Red rosie I've no idea what to expect. Can't wait to see what goes down.

13.) 07 May 2019 17:05:53
Spot on Danny he shows up when he wants which is when he has a point to prove ie mou getting sacked. The bare minimum an employee should bring is effort and willingness to improve and he does neither enough.

"And of course the player needs convincing. " - I still struggle to process this - surely sounding out the agent to see if the player actually wants to play for us should be step 1 on the *transfer flow chart (*not a literal chart) . If he's not interested then move on to the next player on the list*! (*hopefully a literal list) .

Southgate seems like a really great man and a good human - that being said I don't want him anywhere near managing our team. What has he shown as a manager? You don't gamble on a guy who has been terrible at club management and ok to good at international management. Would be an awful awful mistake.

The trick is to ask the pool/ afc supporting lot who they think is good BEFORE the transfer window. That way you get honest answers rather than the usual nonsense as above.

The fact that he's in the last year of his contract with no intention of signing a new one surely means he will at least be cheaper than Rice (not that that is saying much! ) .
