Good morning Ed002. Do you know if there is any truth to the report that Utd have made an offer for Ruben Neves?

Thanks in advance for your insight.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of an offer.}



18 Sep 2019 14:57:47
Just read a report that we've struck adeal with sporting for bruno Fernandes for the January transfer window. Surely not?

Has anyone got any info to confirm or deny this?


{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you - Twitter was this?}

1.) 18 Sep 2019 16:55:44
Might as well have been. Caught Offside. From your wise words Ed, I shall choose to ignore it.



08 Feb 2019 08:12:36
Sorry to fire in random names but I was wondering if utd have shown any interest in Nicholas pepe. Thanks in advance.


{Ed025's Note - not as far as i am aware TB..



09 Jul 2018 20:50:18
Hirving Lozano anyone? I've been reading a lot of reports over the last few days that we've agreed €42 million deal with PSV. Anyone know if there's any truth or is it just more paper talk about random players?


1.) 09 Jul 2018 20:59:47
Im not sure. Let me ask my contacts and get back to you.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 21:29:18
If i'm not wrong isn't lozano another player whos right footed and likes to play left wing and cut inside.

If so we have plenty of those lol.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 23:36:31
He can play right wing. Plays there in Holland.



15 Jun 2017 18:01:33
Do any of the eds know if reports of utds interest in Andersen Tallisca are true. From what I've read it could be that he's trying to engineer a move for himself but I just can't tell with all the junk that's posted on't tinterweb nowadays.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by MU but he is a player Mourinho has been keen on before.}

With just over 2 weeks left of the transfer window remaining, I have to admit that I can't see us bringing any signings that we've all, and the team, have been craving.

The more I read about our club, the more I think that financially, we are on our arses.

Chelsea are trying to throw money around like it's going out of fashion. City just get who they want, when they want. Even Tottenham have gone out and done good business early in the window.

What are we doing? We chase De Jong, a player that clearly doesn't want to leave Barcelona. Then we leap to Rabiot that has an agent that is notoriously difficult to deal with and is holding out for a kings Ransom in wages that our hierarchy just aren't willing to commit to.

We have Ronaldo, that is doing everything he can to annoy the new manager so that he can escape this sinking ship and cling onto his UCL records for another season.

I could go into details about the rest of the squad but you all know the issues, even if our board and management team don't.

It doesn't look good and I, personally, cannot see it getting any better any time soon.


1.) 16 Aug 2022 20:16:11
I'm happy that Rabiot deal looks like it's going to not happen.
Rabiot wants huge money, we don't want to pay that which is a positive.

We already have a lot of mercenaries.

Personally I don't mind a sangare even after his contract extension or a Paredes.

2.) 16 Aug 2022 20:06:57
Agree and when you look at last years results against bottom half of league we struggled . Expect without any additions in next two weeks we will be scrapping for points to finish in top half.
Present team is set up with individual skills not as a team or physicality needed to battle .

3.) 16 Aug 2022 20:31:48
They know how toxic the atmosphere will be next week and will parade a new signing or two on the pitch to try and placate people. They know they need to spend big in the next couple of days…surely?

4.) 16 Aug 2022 20:51:44
I was just going to post something along the same lines. I am not sure its financial and if it was I would accept it even though not necessarily liking it.

If its not financial, This is the worst window, which I can recall we have had given last year results.

The players we are being associated with now are a bit of concern and wondering if we have completely screwed it up and not a lot of options and desperation stuff and complete panic at the club.

I would rather not waste money on players, who turn out to be no better than what we have and get through the season with some respectability.

It reeks of a complete screw up and dysfunctional organization.

5.) 16 Aug 2022 23:53:50
There are loads of players out there that would improve us, let’s hope we get some good ones.



12 Aug 2022 07:56:40
Ollie Watkins from Villa is available, I'm told. Would be better than Aurnotavic. Thoughts?


1.) 12 Aug 2022 08:15:33
if we want to finish midtable then these are the type of signings to make.

2.) 12 Aug 2022 09:13:39
Would also cost somewhere around 40-50m. A good player but not enough if there’s any ambition left at the club.

3.) 12 Aug 2022 10:08:51
Villa's main striker, why would they want to sell with less than 3 weeks to go in the window?

4.) 12 Aug 2022 10:21:38
Spenno I saw rumours that he fell out with Gerrard. Not sure if anything in them.

5.) 12 Aug 2022 10:43:56
He and Gerrard had a fallout spenno as per reports.

{Ed014's Note - Gerard is a complete tool, not sure anyone likes that nugget!

6.) 12 Aug 2022 11:27:03
It’s looking like Gerrard was a much better player then he is Manager that’s for sure, but no surprise there how many times that been seen!

Guess Arteta won’t have to be that good a manager to be better then he was as a player though!

Gerrard does seem to be upsetting a few, but I’m not sure any relents United because surely none of his cast offs are suitable for where we are trying to get!

{Ed014's Note - he’d walk into your midfield right now and he’s 40! ??

7.) 12 Aug 2022 11:45:25
I agree he would, but would also walk into yours too…and if we’re honest would probably walk into Liverpools too…… but I’m not sure where that was even mentioned!

{Ed014's Note - unfortunately he wouldn’t walk into either of those midfields.

You mentioned it with your snide comment about Arteta as a player and a manager.


8.) 12 Aug 2022 12:02:50
Sorry let’s not let facts get in the way!

It’s ok to give out but not take back. very immature, it’s about opinions… I would 100% say Gerrard is still better then Milner or Henderson and probably Keita too, but of course Xhaka would be much better!

{Ed014's Note - goodbye yet again.

9.) 12 Aug 2022 12:59:28
Ed is that account someone who’s been here before or under a different name or something? Only really started seeing it past couple of days and well comments on everything ?.

{Ed014's Note - yes mate it is. There’s always one and he’s currently been about 15 of them! ?‍♂️?

10.) 12 Aug 2022 13:08:58
Genuine question here ED014, have you changed your mind on Arteta?

{Ed014's Note - hi mate, no not yet mate I haven’t, I like some of the things he’s done, as in got rid of the rubbish and stuck to his guns over that.

I like that we’re looking toward a more youthful squad and I’ve really liked some of our performances.

There are definite improvements but I need to be really convinced this season that he’s the man. The drop off last season was a concern.

I actually really hope he succeeds and this is his season to do it, to show we’re on the up and not standing still.

Question for you, if you could swap squads, lock stock and barrel and keep ETH, would you do it?

11.) 12 Aug 2022 14:24:07
Ed014. definitely I would swap squads but I think there are 9 or ten squads in the PL which are better than Utd's.

{Ed014's Note - I honestly think that’s not far off mate and no idea how they’ve let that happen.

12.) 12 Aug 2022 15:32:50
I'm pretty sure NewYorker and Duvin are one and the same.

{Ed014's Note - and his other multitude of usernames. He’s come from various parts of Europe and states in the US.

13.) 12 Aug 2022 15:38:48
There might be many squads better than ours but it's not like we spent the most money or pay the most in wages for ours, that would be crazy.

14.) 12 Aug 2022 21:28:54
I like Watkins, but I think Toney is a better player if we're discussing young English forwards.

15.) 13 Aug 2022 01:04:42
Do you buy a reserve player or do you invest in a better player to what you currently have?



04 Jul 2022 08:58:51
Why are we still chasing De Jong? He would, clearly, rather stay in Barcelona, who are trying to rinse us for as much as they can so they can replace him with City's Silva.

Are we mugs? Move on. Is he really that good anyway?


1.) 04 Jul 2022 09:30:22
like Di Maria all over again. why are chasing players who don't want to come to us.

2.) 04 Jul 2022 09:32:07
Are you new to transfers?
The bigger Twitter transfer gurus say it's very close. Add-ons are being talked about.
The president didn't come and out say we want to sell him to make sure he gets good money.

3.) 04 Jul 2022 09:51:12
I don't think most fans are capable of being objective about players moving and the reasons for why they move.

As fans we'd all give our left nut to play for United and we often feel that players should feel the same way.

The difference is that players aren't fans, they are professionals making career based decisions.

As such they will care about how much money they make, who they will be working with, the location of where they will work, the ambition of the employer and the chances of success at that employer.

Given the clubs current slump I'd have to seriously question a players intelligence and/ or their ambition if they were willing to join United without any idea about how the team was going to play, what their role in that would be, how the club intends to challenge for trophies and what are the realistic chances of that.

If you're happy to join United with no plan for you and your development, or with no clear idea about how the club will push to become relevant again and win the big tournaments then you MUST be stupid or are only interested in a big pay packet.

Our problems on the pitch all stem from players lacking intelligence and ambition.

4.) 04 Jul 2022 10:02:33
You wouldn't give your left nut you said you wouldn't sign for united.

{Ed014's Note - surely not changed his story again, god forbid!

5.) 04 Jul 2022 10:20:21
Ken, if I was making an intelligent decision rather than an emotional one then no I wouldn't sign for United.

If you have a choice of playing for a club that over the past ten years has failed to help players develop and improve, has failed to challenge for top honours and has only regressed consistently for 10 years.

Or the choice to play for a club that has consistently improved players over the past 10 years, and has consistently challenged for top honours over the past 10 years.

Then the only intelligent choice is the latter and not the former. That's just common sense, something most fans are incapable of when it comes to their own club.

Yep that's it Shaps, I'll add psychologist to the ever growing list of your qualifications haha.

7.) 04 Jul 2022 09:46:25
You place stock in some online opinions. If Romano says it’s close then I’d tend to go with that.

8.) 04 Jul 2022 09:46:26
rohanarora8 - it doesn't change the fact he doesn't want to leave Barca.
It's exactly the same as the Di Maria debacle, Real wanted money to buy Bale, Di Maria didn't want to come.
I have no idea why you would want to spend 60 million plus on a player that doesn't even want to come. it's madness!
Surely you don't get the best out of a player when he doesn't even want to be there?

9.) 04 Jul 2022 11:21:19
I think most on here would give their left nut to play for United but appreciate the comment that very few players would share that view. Players are just employees of a company at the end of the day. They will more likely want to work for Google than Halesini Search Engines Limited I'm sure. And at the moment City and Liverpool are the Google of the football world and we are the latter. United are still a big club but a less attractive on now than a decade ago for sure. Liverpool were in the wilderness for ages though and came back. It is possible. And whilst financially they did exceptionally well from sales of Coutinho and to a lesser extent Suarez they invested that money incredibly well, buying a world class centre half and keeper. They have also made some exceptionally well judged purchases I would say in Salah, Mane and one that goes under the radar a little for me in Fabinho.

United need to 'do a Liverpool' but we have taken the first step in signing a very highly regarded manager who plays attractive football. I'd say Klopp had a higher profile at Dortmund as he had won their league and got to the UCL final. Ten Hag winning his own slightly weaker league and UCL semi-final. Whatever happens this summer though regarding new recruits, we have already made our best signing.

Promoting from our youth ranks can't be underestimated too. We already have Garnacho and Fernandez receiving heaps of praise and they may well break into the first team squad now under Ten Hag. Garner has developed from his stint at Forest and is another who you'd expect plenty of first team action for along with Mejbri.

Just as it took Klopp until his 4th season with Liverpool to start challenging I expect the same of United. Its well noted that Ten Hag is looking to players he's already managed but he is also looking at younger players. I think Frenkie at 25 is the oldest we have been linked to and again I see that as a positive sign.

I don't think Ten Hag will have an issue with Ronaldo wishing to leave. He will turn 38 this season so hardly going to be the lynchpin of a side that can challenge in a few seasons time. Equally Maquire and Varane may be options now for defence but we need younger reinforcements.

There is far greater chance of winning silverware at City and Liverpool for sure. And they have and will attract many great talents. City have Haaland and Phillips now. I strongly suspect Bellingham will be a Liverpool player next season. But United are a project for the future now but still a big club. Just as Liverpool were a big club who'd fallen into a long fallow period but had future potential because of Klopp. It didn't stop Salah, Mane, Van Dijk signing for them and likewise we will be able still attract some quality additions also.

It will take time though. Think we have a few seasons of being very ordinary but will be helped by the quality of the league. 20 teams in the league but realistically that's 8 in terms of teams with any real quality. 4th spot would already be a hard task for us however players will still want to come to us. City and Liverpool can't take all the good players and keep them all happy playing time wise. Grealish - £100m signing but how much game time has he really got for City. Certainly not a permanent fixture in that side such as De Bruyne is.

We are in the mire a bit now and some choppy waters ahead. At least we have the right captain in charge now. We will get there. It will just take time. Lots of it.

10.) 04 Jul 2022 11:37:13
Fireman. Is this the same Romano who recorded "Man Utd sack Ole" video two weeks before it happened and leaked it online by accident. He went on to talk about about sources in the club told him it was because of results.

I'm not saying the man doesn't have contacts, he obviously does but this is akin to a medium telling vulnerable people what they want to hear.

It's his job. The more clicks the more money.

11.) 04 Jul 2022 11:52:04
Bang on. mumbles the guy is a millionaire of the back of gossip hungry sad little mugs.

It would be time very well spent imo and a lot better spent than allegedly watching 9 full mathes a week from right across the globe plus all the highlights.

13.) 04 Jul 2022 13:48:24
Regarding Romano. Whatever he is or isn’t. He’s never far off the money.

14.) 04 Jul 2022 13:52:34
Ken. He’s doing pretty well from ‘sad little mugs’ then so good luck to him.

Can’t believe there isn’t more millionaires on here because there’s loads of ‘experts’ who always know better….

15.) 04 Jul 2022 14:26:42
It's the way of the social media world fireman. If you get the clicks you get the money. Do you understand how it works? It's beautiful for folks like him. His name goes viral and folk keep clicking in.
He is making a fortune and its 99% gossip and tittle tattle but the insatiable appetite for gossip among supporters keeps him posting his updates.
One you understand what he is up to you will become attuned to why and how it happens.
Clever guy. Not as clever as the glazers but clever nonetheless.

16.) 04 Jul 2022 14:28:16
I'm sure there are afew millionaires amongst the group fireman. But nobody made it from being a football expert for sure??.

17.) 04 Jul 2022 19:51:23
I am sure there are player who would rather play elsewhere or stay at a certain club but for a variety of reasons cannot.

I am sure that there are thise who give less than full effort and then there are those who will make the best of a bad lot and are professional and give their all in spite of this.

Frenkie has a decision to make on a situation that is less than ideal. I imagine that his previous anger under whom he kicked on is more than happy with the way he will react in the situation.



07 May 2022 20:39:09
I've been wasting energy on thinking how best to motivate this bunch of pretenders and the only thing I can think of is to allow some of the fans access to the squad after a game. It would either put the fear of God up the players or embarass them into putting a little effort in.

The thought of selling them all and starting again isn't realistic, although that would be my first choice.

Where did it all go wrong.

I think that’s fair Ed14. Like a tooth slowly decaying after years of neglect.

{Ed014's Note - it was the day the Glazers started their takeover bid having finally got sufficient shares

2.) 07 May 2022 22:37:00
You can't blame the Glazers for today's spineless performance. Ultimately its the players who actually kick a football run fight and work as a team on the pitch. Or it should be. Sure the manager and coaches have huge input but as fans we would forgive the players for a lack of basic quality if we see the really trying. That's nothing to do with the Glazers. It's a sad indictment of the lack of pride of the players.

{Ed014's Note - oh I wasn’t blaming them for the performance that’s down to the hapless clowns on the pitch.

Who purchased the hapless clowns is on them.

07 May 2022 18:52:33
Just on the off chance that anyone from Manchester United, be that player or staff, actually looks at these pages, I would just like to state that you are an embarassment and should be immediately removed from the club. Not just you but everyone. You are clearly, very bad at your job and as a United fan, I expect better. Please stop ruining my illusions of this once great club.


1.) 07 May 2022 19:57:15

Then there is the poor coach driver who takes em to the stadium sits through that dross then has to drive em back to the airport/ Hotel whilst those twats post sad faces on twittergram and how they need to work hard before serving another plate of dross in the next match.

3.) 07 May 2022 20:24:16
Totally agree. I’ve said it a few times, and I will say it again, if 90% of this squad were paid off this summer and fired out of our (the fans) club from a canon, to be replaced by a team of youngsters for next year, with the one or two first teamers that deserve to stay, I would accept a bottom half/ relegation fight in order to get rid of the useless, disinterested, lazy, unprofessional bunch of w@nkers that currently call themselves Manchester United players. I would snap your hand off now for that.

I hope the new man is watching every second of every game played this season and sits down for a very long talk with RR. He needs to come in and the whole playing staff need a reset, not just some tinkering. They are a disgrace, and in times where ordinary people and fans are feeling a massive pinch with everything in the world going up, these over paid pr*cks are turning our once great club into a giant laughing stock.

I’m done with this season, and will see how the summer goes before deciding if I can even be ar$ed with next season, but if half of the squad aren’t gone I highly doubt it.

If Liverpool do the quadruple, it will kill me but at least they will deserve it, and it will prove once and for all how far we are away from being able to compete with both them and City. This squad has zero chance of ever doing that, from the “captain” down.

4.) 07 May 2022 20:54:49
That bit vexes me 'if Liverpool do the quadruple', but I must admit, they look fantastic. I only wish we were half as good as they are this season.

5.) 07 May 2022 22:44:18
I said it when he was appointed and I will say it again. RR was not the man for the job.

Worst points return since 90/ 91 at this stage.
Worst away record since the 70’s, having had the longest undefeated run under Ole.
Demoralised and destroyed the team beyond repair, although it was already pretty disfunctional.
Tactically terrible.

Is it all his fault? Not at all. Everyone in the club should take a long hard look in the mirror but this has been another in a long line of poor recruitment decisions.

So frustrating as a fan of nearly 60 years to watch this embarrassing mess of a club.

6.) 07 May 2022 23:27:09
Keefy if RR’s appointment, and the shocking results since, mean that there is now a major clear out and squad change then it will have been THE greatest decision we could have made. However if nothing much changes personnel wise then it will have been a disaster.

This group of players, on the whole, have been useless for years, not just since RR came in. We have needed a real clear out for god knows how long, as the attitude within the squad is shocking. Unprofessional, over inflated ego’s, overpaid and with too much power. They need to go and if RR has helped make this happen, he’ll do for me, shocking results or not.

Maybe he has just been asking them to play how he feels they should be able to play, but they aren’t good enough, or dedicated enough, to do so. Maybe he is appalled at what he sees and is highlighting this so that everyone can see it, including the new man coming in the summer ??.

7.) 07 May 2022 23:35:07
Might as well be on here during the game, couldn't do worse.

The first line of this thread, "we're going to end up with Gakpo and Depay", we'll be lucky. The way the muppets that run our club operate, we'll end up with no one else.

I will admit that I am rather pessimistic when it comes to confidence in the way our transfer dealings pan out. Well, the track record isn't great. It took a month for them to sort a free transfer.

Can't disagree with anything you're saying mate, about both teams. When did we start to accept mediocrity? Take me back to Wenger v Fergie, Viera v Keane, Henry v Van Nistelroy. The good old days. Now I sound like my dad. Its official, I'm old and football ain't what it used to be.


{Ed014's Note - as fans I don’t think we do mate, we’re sadly reliant on American owners that look at money before anything else to get us challenging again.

Loved those days mate and now we have to watch Liverpool and City smashing it! ?

You believe in the Arteta movement then? I'm not convinced myself. Only my opinion but your lot are only in 4th because the rest have been so bad. It seems no one wants that 4th spot. Even Chelsea are doing their best to throw 3rd away.

Is it because other than City and Liverpool the rest of the Premier league is very competitive or because, other than those two, the rest of the league is so bad? I can't tell anymore.


{Ed014's Note - no mate not yet and we are currently 2nd in a group of mediocrity which sums up everyone below the top two.

Your players are just woeful to a man and I wouldn’t touch one of them with a barge pole if I want Arsenal to win anything.

How anyone even likes Bruno Fernandes is beyond me.

Arteta needs to up his game considerably for me, we accumulated points whilst playing pretty poorly, still shipping to many goals and obvs with no top class striker not scoring enough either.

Ronaldo leaving is not new information. I'm sure I read from Ed 002 that the club would be happy for him to leave prior to the window opening.

I don't see this as the end of the world. We are trying to build a new team, under a new coach and having some9ne with Ronald's ego in the dressing room undermining anything he disagrees with must be a nightmare.

No one is bigger than the team. So long Ronnie and thanks for all the fish.
