Reports today that we want to sign Michael Elibowei from derby, any truth in this Ed? Also would he be a free transfer or would ompensation be needed for derby? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - No, there would need to be a transfer fee and compensation for two other clubs. Another side is working on it already.}

1.) 17 Jun 2022 21:13:40
Thanks Ed, have a lovely weekend.



15 Jun 2022 20:51:07
Hey Ed if possible can you provide an update on Andreas pereira? By the sound of it he's back with us again? Any chance we can finally offload him this summer as he seems to be in a perpetual loan cycle which is no good for anyone.


{Ed002's Note - Andreas Pereira (CM/AM) Flamengo want loan to pay the agreed price to convert his loan fee to make the move permanent but their finances are not in a good state and Murtough wanted to hang on to the player until the summer, but the timing is not good with the Brazilian season. However, he was part of the deal offered to Benfica for another player so the club are perhaps open to moving him on.}

1.) 16 Jun 2022 09:11:18
Thanks Ed, appreciate that ?.

2.) 16 Jun 2022 11:29:50
He's about to enter the form of his life and will be a key player for the 6 pre-season games, before his form drops off a cliff the moment he comes up against a team that isn't just trying to build fitness but actually win the match.

3.) 16 Jun 2022 11:43:22
Ed, as a matter of interest, who was the Benfica player?

{Ed002's Note - Nunez - we have been through this.}

4.) 16 Jun 2022 12:23:04
You know it shappy…pre season pirlo incoming!

5.) 16 Jun 2022 12:16:10
Ha sorry Ed, i'd already forgotten about him being a Benfica player.

6.) 16 Jun 2022 15:41:46
The pre season Porto is ready to stake his claim.



15 Jun 2022 20:30:59
According to credible Dutch journos timber is most likely staying at Ajax. That could be another potential signing gone, can't help but thin LVG has had a word especially with the WC coming up, and that's affected his decision.


1.) 15 Jun 2022 20:47:01
United will have affected his decision,

We prob spoke to him 2 months ago then as we do go back and forth, then waisted 2 months on de jong and he's prob had enough of the waiting around waiting for united to actually make an offer.

We could write a book on how not to do transfers.

2.) 15 Jun 2022 21:03:11
I’m sure having a defender playing most if not all weeks in the strongest league in the world would benefit Holland more than one testing himself against substandard Prem rejects in the Mickey Mouse one-horse race that is the Eredivisie.

3.) 15 Jun 2022 21:15:34
To be honest I really like Timber, but feel that he would probably benefit more from another season in the Eredivisie. He's very young still and is more than a little raw in several areas of his game.

Memphis Depay looked more ready when we signed him than Timber does currently.

I also wonder if in the EPL he'd be better at RB for a season or two while he adapts to the physicality and pace of the league.

However, EtH knows the player better than anyone on here so I'll gladly defer to his better judgement. If he thinks Timber is the ideal player and is ready for the step up then so be it.

There is also supposed to be a gentleman's agreement between EtH/ Manchester United with Ajax not to try and sign half their squad. I think with players like Tagalifico, Mazraoui and Gravenberch definitely leaving they won't want to lose too many more.

If recent rumours are to be believed the club and EtH holds a strong interest in Antony. I'd imagine if we sign an Ajax player then it'll only be one. Timber or Antony probably not both.

4.) 15 Jun 2022 21:38:40
I did suggest something a while back about ten Hag ‘agreeing’ not to swipe half his former players, and the consensus was that Ajax are a selling club who’d happily sell players left right and centre if they’re getting £40-£60m a pop and can replace them with their latest academy whizzkids. But I do think it’s rare a club would sell two first teamers at the same time to any one team. I too am more convinced that Antony would be the better option if any of that jibberish was true.

5.) 15 Jun 2022 21:52:00
I would not worry too much it's only been several weeks, we will wait another month then stick in a bid for half the asking price which obviously Ajax will jump at. This is how you do business when you're the Big Dwags.

If Ajax will not listen to reason our 65th choice is available especially when we offer double his asking price and we will show everyone what were about by snapping up that bargain.



09 Jun 2022 13:31:29
Reports surfacing that we are negotiating for Anthony for Ajax. not sure of the source. probably just another easy ajax link but I hope not.


1.) 09 Jun 2022 14:06:05
Why not tim? With greenwood out the picture we need a winger, elenga isn't good enoigh martial is leaving, leaves just rashford and sancho.

2.) 09 Jun 2022 14:12:47
Tim you going to give yourself a hernia??.

3.) 09 Jun 2022 14:17:56
Who is buying martial bolger? I've not seen that.

4.) 09 Jun 2022 14:27:50
I’m happy about the link is what I meant. Think he’d be a decent addition, Trust me Ken the transfer window is the least thing annoying me right now. Try contacting BT about internet issues and that will really wind u up ?.

5.) 09 Jun 2022 14:31:46
I think he means he hopes it isn't just another rumour.

6.) 09 Jun 2022 14:31:54
Would mean sending Pellistri, Amad and Elanga out on loan.

7.) 09 Jun 2022 14:40:25
The main stream media will now look for another 60-80m forward for us to sign now that Darwin Nunez is heading elsewhere.

8.) 09 Jun 2022 16:08:56
Saw a report we are speaking with mendes about nunez today i don't think this is over yet i dunno maybe i'm just hopeful but ed hasn't said liverpool have made or had a bid accepted yet.

9.) 09 Jun 2022 16:14:16
Who did nunez agree to sign for?

10.) 09 Jun 2022 16:18:12
Didnt one of the eds say he's leaving ken?

Be another sign of things being the same if we keep him.

11.) 09 Jun 2022 16:30:56
Nunez has signed for no one yet ken (although you wouldn't believe it the way everyones going on) seems like we may be making a play today hopefully ed can give us some information in the next few days.

12.) 09 Jun 2022 17:17:23
Can we find a taker bolger?

13.) 09 Jun 2022 19:11:44
That is the big question ken
Maybe not but i wouldn't like to rely on martial for next season he hasn't the desire or attitude for me.

14.) 09 Jun 2022 19:20:34
According to a reliable source on Insta, ETH is in Portugal himself trying to hijack Liverpools deal.

15.) 09 Jun 2022 19:37:57
I would not be surprised if we end up with Anthony as our attacking purchase this summer, we may look at a low cost/ free buy that EtH is aware of that is low risk to back Ronaldo up.
EtH convinces Martial he has no suiters and it's in boths interests to stay this year to see what happens and move next year.
Rashford covers left side/ attack, Elanga covers right side/ wing back. Even Fernandea could cover Ronaldo as false 9.
Front 3 of Sancho, Ronaldo, Anthony for year and look for striker next season.

16.) 09 Jun 2022 18:46:12
Bit harsh to say elanga isn't good enough, you can't judge him on last season no one Was good enough.

17.) 10 Jun 2022 16:14:18
Brad…. you seriously think Rashford will play understudy to Sancho…. what on earth as Sancho done to warrant a starting place? And you jettisoned Erlanger Amad, Pellestri, for someone called Anthony that not ever played in premier!

How do you know he is any better then the ones we already have!

18.) 11 Jun 2022 00:17:10
Rashford is a one trick pony who has never progressed, he basically needs the ball into space snd to be able to cut inside onto his right foot. He has not developed anything else over the last three years and now teams know how to cancel him out.

To defend against Rashford you offer him the outside as a right back, if he takes it he will go down a blind alley.

Over the last 2 years he has shown little willingness to his defensive duties this won't wash with the ETH system where he requires eggort in the press.

Rashford lacks football intelligence, he cannot see nor do anything but drive I to space or hit the ball into space.

He would work in a counter attacking team as it stands.

It is sad but its the reality of him, he burst onto the scene but never kicked on. He has not developed anything else In his arsenal over the past 5 years.

It is sad but he has never kicked on, he will never become what we hoped. He is clearly a good person and did fantastic things over the lockdown but that should not mask his on field ability.

For me he is one of the key barometers of where we are headed, if he remains and the board refuses to sanction his sale he will just be another limited money drain on the club, kept because he is a local lad who has done good for society not because he will be a piece in the jigsaw in the future of a EPL winning team.

19.) 11 Jun 2022 16:40:16
OB, but you have no idea perhaps ETH thinks he can get something more from him! I agree he is a one trick pony, TBF it’s the last 3 years coaching that should be bought into question

He as pace he has strength, he has ability, he scored goals in premier, maybe lacking in brain, but then so do many, if ETH is as good coach as everyone keeps hoping, then maybe he is at a better starting point then a 70m player who done or won nothing and not even tried and tested, but he got a sexy name, so that’s ok.



06 Jun 2022 13:38:48
City in for FDJ now apparently. we can count him out if true.


{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new in this.}

1.) 06 Jun 2022 13:54:34
Sorry Ed I’m assuming you’ve gone over city’s interest. If they are seriously in for him then we should move on. There’s plenty of positions needing attention as you know.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what "seriously in" means.}

2.) 06 Jun 2022 15:07:56
To clarify I just mean that it’s not just paper talk and that city are in negotiations to sign him. My point being if Fdj has a choice of clubs then he obviously going to pick city.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the papers are saying. I have explained the situation previously.}

3.) 06 Jun 2022 15:32:14
Found that Ed. Thanks ?.

4.) 07 Jun 2022 15:29:20
Ed002, why are MUFC wasting time and efforts trying to sign a player who isn’t interested in playing for them?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that they have made too much of an effort yet.}

5.) 07 Jun 2022 18:00:19
Well that’s actually a relief. Thanks for the response hope you’re day is going well.

Tom Keane joining the club to replace Matt judge, he will have an active role in negotiations and transfer deals apparently. Not sure how involved judge has been lately but it can't make sense to change this role, if important half way through the window. anyways hopefully he has more success than those before him and he's actually qualified to do the job.


1.) 23 Jun 2022 21:26:56
Judge was leaving ages ago. We knew this.

Not sure it will make much differebce now as you say but again let's see what happens

New faces but same issues atm.

2.) 23 Jun 2022 21:38:02
There was a report the other day that judge was still actively involved in negotiations and would be until he leaves next week. That kind of dis function wouldn’t surprise me and typifies us currently.

3.) 23 Jun 2022 23:58:09
Tim, don't worry, as some keep telling us the transfer window has just opened and we're overreacting. All the clubs above us have strengthened. We've done nothing. And now, our negotiator is leaving.
But don't worry as everything will be OK.
We've been at this for 16 years and people still give them the benefit of the doubt. Good luck ETH, you're going to need it.

4.) 24 Jun 2022 13:45:17
Judge is apparently serving his notice period and it certainly feels like he is still involved hence, the lack of progress.



18 Jun 2022 19:26:59
Interesting little video doing the rounds on social media. Richard Arnold talking to a few fans whilst having a beer. Seems to genuinely have an interest in the club, whether he'll be any good at the job is another thing.


1.) 18 Jun 2022 22:26:22
The guy who posted it said it was just PR nonsense and they weren't falling for it. Arnold seemed to confirmation that the protests were hurting the club and the fans at the pub now see this as an incentive to carry on.

2.) 19 Jun 2022 11:26:18
The guy who posted it and filmed it is an absolute idiot! We finally get opportunity to speak directly with the hierarchy at the club and we abuse the trust . I’m not sticking up for Arnold or anyone here just saying he had decency to speak and was very honest, yet he won’t do that again now after he gets shafted by video .

3.) 19 Jun 2022 13:18:16
It's definitely a catch 22 where your not going to please everyone. i think the people running the club need more engagement with the fans and I think Arnold did the right thing, but like someone said the person that filmed it is an idiot looking for some followers.

4.) 19 Jun 2022 15:07:31
S***house behaviour recording somebody without their knowledge.



16 Jun 2022 21:59:50
I'm really hoping that Barcelona approving new financial measures will bring the Fdj saga to a head. They've freed up a large amount of money although their wage bill is still high and will need trimmed to meet Spanish regulations. United need to get a firm yes or no and either sign him or move on. Seems this one move is affecting everything so we need an outcome one way or another.


1.) 17 Jun 2022 10:53:02
I think this transfer is holding everything up and will dictate who else we move for and how much we have left over. It's in both club's interests to resolve it so they can move forward with the rest of their transfer plans, but by holding out Barcelona get to leave the door open for other interested clubs to offer more.



16 Jun 2022 11:12:12
Henderson to forest makes little sense, hendo only gets a loan so his future isn't sorted, United don't get a fee so can't add funds to bring in players and we also have to pay some of his wages. Also forest will probably go down meaning they won't buy him outright anyways. All a bit strange.


1.) 16 Jun 2022 11:47:47
The whole goalkeeping situation at United doesn't make sense.

We brought back Henderson from his loan at Sheffield United to sit on the bench for 2 years.

He was arguably the most promising young English goalkeeper at the time.

Two years where he could have been developing wasted on the bench.

While the club now have to make a decision with DDG. He has been poor in 3 of the last 4 season's and is entering the final year of his 375k a week contact.

Meaning the club have to sign him up to a new deal or watch him leave for free next summer.

However, signing him up to a new deal won't be easy. Will he agree a reduction in his wages or not? If not then can the club justify extending his contract on those wages or higher?

So the club now find themselves with a talented young English keeper who is trying to force a move out of the club so he can play.

While they are stuck with the highest paid keeper in the league, who might not suit EtH's style of play and who needs a contract extension or he will leave next summer.

Somehow the club have gone from having a world class DDG, the best back up keeper in the league in Romero and the best young English keeper in Henderson, to potentially having none of them at the club next summer and needing to sign both a first choice keeper AND a back up keeper (as Heaton will also leave next summer) .

They've literally managed to turn a position of complete strength into an area that needs a total rebuild in the space of 3 years.

2.) 16 Jun 2022 12:07:14
One that can be attributed to Ole’s dithering personality and inability to make a decision.

It took DDG going on paternity leave for the goalkeeping situation to be sorted for a brief moment.

3.) 16 Jun 2022 12:08:57
Hes sat on the bench because he isn't good enough to be number 1.

De gea is miles above henderson, we should have sold him 2 years ago when he price was high

And unless de gea can improve in his distribution and the ball at his feet he won't be there next year.

Dont get me wrong de gea was excellent last season but he will need to be able to play it out from the back.

4.) 16 Jun 2022 12:34:08
DSG, 100% Ole should have just made a choice and let the other leave.

Personally I think both Henderson struggling to settle AND to a point DDG's poor form (he had been poor before Henderson returned to the club) could be attributed to a lack of consistency in picking who starts.

While it was good to see DDG return to good form last season when he was guaranteed to start. The reality is his profile as a keeper is almost the polar opposite of what EtH has tended to look for and use as a keeper in his team's. Maybe he can adapt and show he can play out from the back and act as a sweeper keeper. But it is a question mark hanging over him for next season.

You can see it it now. Typical of Manchester United over the past ten years.

DDG will struggle next season, while Henderson on loan will be one of the top keepers in the league again as he was at Sheffield United.

He'll then leave permanently next summer, while United have to scratch around to find both a new keeper and a back up keeper.

5.) 16 Jun 2022 13:26:49
Shappy, most promising goalkeeper. He's okay mate. Don't be getting too excited.

Got his chance and couldn't take it.

6.) 16 Jun 2022 13:34:39
Nobody of any significance wants him. Nobody of any significance ever made an offer for him sheff utd and forest is his level until he justifys all the claims some of his fan boys make.

He could be a top keeper but all the buyers obviously think different.

7.) 16 Jun 2022 14:04:59
Not sure it was a position of strength, but the least worse part of our team, which doesn't say much.

Good luck to Henderson, can't see him back at United after his loan, but I did also say that about Pirlo.

8.) 16 Jun 2022 14:11:10
We love sentiment. So we’ll probably keep DDG and give him a new contract worth 500k a year, despite the fact he can’t kick a ball. As for Henderson…. we can do better.

9.) 16 Jun 2022 14:20:39
I think Ole made the decision to Use Henderson, but he got C.V. before start of season and DdG stepped in and rediscovered his form.

10.) 16 Jun 2022 14:24:20
Agree with Bolger and Ken. Ddg has never been my favourite keeper as apart from his shot stopping, he possesses none of the attributes required of a modern day keeper.
Henderson played a few matches and he looked very nervous and totally out of his depth. He's another Ben Foster. Should've sold him and bought a decent replacement. Luckily, there are good keepers out there, so hopefully we can get a competent replacement if Henderson is sold.
If I was United, I would have done a deal involving Henderson and Spence, that would've suited both sides.

11.) 16 Jun 2022 15:48:23
Tim, they have an option to buy for £20 million which says it all about the player.

Shappy you put a lot of time and effort into Henderson, pulling stats up iv never heard of to prove Henderson was better than De Gea. That was a couple of years ago and now we can see you were on the wrong side of the fence on that one. As Ken has said, no one decent wants him.

You're also revising history. The club didn't bring him back from loan to sit on the bench. He told the club he wasn't going out on loan and he should be No.1. A smart man should have known that if he goes on loan for another couple of years, outperform De Gea then he's our No.1 for a decade. He was gifted a shot underservedly and squandered it. He's not a better keeper than Dave, never has been and never will be. Hopefully he does well at Forrest and they purchase him. Any team with aspirations for top honours need a better GK than a fragile, egotistical average keeper.



01 Jun 2022 12:18:55
Pog off. Bye Bye Paul.


1.) 01 Jun 2022 13:22:54
That's a, start. But 9 or 10 more need to follow him but that's not going to happen. Rr came in identified at least 10 players needed to go. But no your wrong the board know better. I can see 3 players being bought in but you'll have 7 or 8 toxic players or players not giving their all or players not good enough which we all saw with our on eyes the last half of the season. Now I hope the new manager will be able to do something with them and I'm looking forward to see him work.
But u can't make maguire ant faster. U can't make lindelof any better. The 2 right and left backs are very average. Mctominay and Fred average.
It will take a few years for the new manager to build a team that's if the toxic board don't scare him off by then.

2.) 01 Jun 2022 13:27:43
Ciao Paul. Enjoy your retirement.

3.) 01 Jun 2022 13:52:18
Losing an £89m player for free, not once but twice.
Admittedly, it's only Utd that considered him worth that. There weren't many objections at the time at the valuation, only bewilderment that we could lose him once then hand over a world record fee to get him back. Bizarre.

4.) 01 Jun 2022 13:55:06
This has certainly brightened up my day. I had a nagging feeling that we were going to do something silly like make him a new contract offer.

Big mistake all round. We shouldn’t have paid stupid money for a player who didn’t want to be here, and he shouldn’t have signed if he didn’t want to be here. Thankfully it’s now in the past.

He can take his dance partner with him too, plus 75% of the first team squad if possible ??.

5.) 01 Jun 2022 13:57:08

6.) 01 Jun 2022 15:29:01
So sorry to see you go Paul.

7.) 01 Jun 2022 15:44:46
Wohooooooooo Maguire next plssss.

8.) 01 Jun 2022 17:18:27
Absolutely devastating news that Utd’s greatest ever midfielder is leaving.

9.) 01 Jun 2022 18:29:53
Pogba leaving, its like a new signing!

10.) 01 Jun 2022 18:35:50
I'm glad he is gone and it's a pity its 3 years too late.
Leahy while I agree with you there are a few still to leave.
That said whomever starts the season in the squad deserves a clean slate imo.
Yes there are many that many of us dislike or don't rate but if they start the season in the squad they do so with a clean slate a fresh start.
Eth will have a plan, there will be structure and method to our game. Any player can improve and respond to ETH and his staff. New roles will be defined and new players will come in.
It will take time as you say to get the team playing the way he would like those with a stay of execution this time will be culled next time unless they are proving their worth and up to the task.
For example the much criticised dalot could begin to fulfil his potential or sancho under better elite guidance.
We will all be a little sceltical of certain players but I for 1 will look to see how they get on under a proper coach.
This is a new begining and a chance to get the train back on the track. We are Manchester United not Burnley and by the time the season kicks off I'd like to think we will all be a lot more optimistic.
Fresh start and we now have a proper coach that improves players I can't think of a better place to start than that.

11.) 01 Jun 2022 18:52:14
I think with Pogba and now Lingard gone/ going, straight away we will see a change in mindset and attitude of players. If we can shift Martial and Bailey too we will have a completely different set of professionals at the club and performances will hopefully reflect this.

12.) 01 Jun 2022 19:00:11
Glad to never have to watch these two pillocks wearing a Utd shirt again.

Pogba was good on football manager, will make turning Utd around harder next season though.

13.) 02 Jun 2022 07:16:11
Ports this is a total guess and only my opinion but I have always felt Bailey could be a bad egg behind the scenes! Don’t ask me why! That Twitter incident with Maguire was another incident that didn’t look good . He’s got to be shown the door imo, along with Henderson, another who in my opinion could be trouble or a sulk. Based only on my opinion!

14.) 02 Jun 2022 08:50:01
Chris1, yeah I just feel from what I’ve seen through social media, some of Bailey’s antics where he’s joking about and acting like a clown aren’t what we need at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not expecting them to be robots but a bit more professionalism is required for me. At least until we’re back on top. It just comes across like none of them are taking it seriously.

I actually felt Henderson should have been giving a chance but fair play to De Gea, he has stayed professional and shown an attitude we need. I get what you mean about Henderson too, it’s almost like he’s so desperate to be number 1, you wonder if he’s a good teammate or would he not think twice about getting one over De Gea to get the spot. You wonder what the atmosphere is like if that is the case. Obviously this may not be the case but it does feel like that a bit with him.

15.) 02 Jun 2022 12:38:20
Personally I don't care about the soxial media stuff, I care about what happens on the pitch on match day week in and week out.

These young men can bugger about in their spare time as much as they want on SM if the are putting the work in and living their life properly.

It's the area I work in and pretty much everyone in their age group are acting like twats on their nowadays.

Back when I was their age we had our own ways of being knobheads and truthfully that lifestyle of my generation was much more damaging to the life of a footballer.

16.) 02 Jun 2022 13:48:43
But they aren’t performing week in, week out on the pitch Oakbark. I couldn’t care less about the drinking culture at United because Robson would go out and leave everything on the pitch every game and every training session. I didn’t care who Rooney knocked boots outside of football with because he gave his all for the team.

I care that these individuals prat about and stick in on SM and then drop 3 or 4 out of 10’s weekly.

17.) 02 Jun 2022 17:00:37
I am not suggesting they are performing to the standard that is required. I am however not of the belief it affects their performance.

I am of the belief they aren't as good as people thought, and have been poorly coached. I don't however think Pogba or Lingard would have been any better players without social media because their limitations as footballers would have been the same.

The 80s drinking however would affect performance. No matter how good Robson was, and he was my hero as a kid and still my favourite all time Utd player, he would have been better if he wasn't getting p. ed every day after training.

18.) 02 Jun 2022 22:36:46
My point is though Oakbark, no other top player behaves on SM like this lot. City players? Liverpool players? Madrid, Munich? Footballers first, influencers or whatever they are 2nd. This lot have it back to front and I agree with you that they aren’t as good as we or they think but I don’t believe they should behave like they are or behave the way they do as for me personally, I question where their priorities lie. If we were winning leagues and cups regularly, I couldn’t care less what they get up to but we’re not and I wonder, when I see their behaviour on SM what their priority is.

The 80’s drinking culture as well I agree, would affect performance but that was the culture and across all teams in that period so kinda levels it self out if you like but this SM culture, imo seems more prominent in this group of players and I do think it affects them and their priorities. There is a video of Keane in rehab and Pogba in rehab and for me, really shows the difference of where we were are where we are.

I think there is a mix of players at the club. However, I think the real issue is a lack of leaders and direction.

We have some players who aren't good enough and have the wrong attitude.

Some who aren't good enough and seem to have a decent attitude.

Some who are good enough and have the wrong attitude.

And some who are good enough, but are followers and not leaders.

I think if we get rid of he bad eggs, bring in a few leaders and give the dressing room some direction and focus then there are probably a few players who'll suprise a few people and prove to be good enough.

However, those players don't seem to have the personality to drag others with them. In the right environment they can thrive, but in a toxic environment they struggle and get pulled down by the rest.

Maybe we should have got the deals done quicker before ajax sold off half their team…just a thought ?‍♂️?.

Fair enough, I’m sure it will become clear sooner or later. Have a lovely day Ed wherever you are ?.

This is the player I thought of as well shappy. In response to Ed02 I probably don’t understand but uniteds transfer policy isn’t easy to grasp at times. Maybe budget constraints are the reason why we are working in this way but it just seems that a lot of time has passed with very little progress. Like you said either make an acceptable offer or don’t. It’s like we think all of a sudden Barcelona will just accept our current offer.


{Ed002's Note - It is not policy - you simply don't understand what is going on.}

Totally correct if we sign Fdj but miss out on other deals as a result then we aren’t in a better position. We’d be better off completing these other deals first. Knowing us we will wait too long and other opportunities will vanish. Ajax are selling other players so by the time we go after Lisandro and Antony they will point blank refuse. Our transfer tactics are baffling at best, incompetent at worst.


{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that you understand the situation at all.}

There was a report the other day that judge was still actively involved in negotiations and would be until he leaves next week. That kind of dis function wouldn’t surprise me and typifies us currently.

Think the previous post may be onto something. Expect on fees agreed on Fdj maybe others on Friday. Trying to distract us from the parasites leeching the clubs money. Positive publicity to counter the negative.

Or a group of idiots, say ones who make decisions at a football club for instance!

We won’t drop them unless we have replacements which in midfield I’m not sure we will get. Your tv might be off quite a bit again next season ?.

My guess would be wages and whatever fee we are demanding. United always price high on sales and then get irked when clubs do the same to us. Funny that. On hendo i'd say a loan is more probable for next season if anyone is interested.
