Hi Ed002, have Man Utd made any contact for Neves? I remember you said that we would be interested but with all the news about DeJong etc, Neves has gone missing. Any update? Thanks!

United Addict

{Ed002's Note - Ruben Neves (DM/CM) Wolves would look to get as close to €50M as they can should circumstances dictate Neves is sold, and they may be more accepting of that now. Mr Mourinho is a huge fan and has tried to take him to three different clubs in the past - and he would, I am sure be interested in taking him to Roma but their focus right now is elsewhere. He has always been seen as an option to replace Matic at Manchester United, but they have other priorities to deal with first and preferred options - although Wolves might see an offer. His agent has been actively offering him around and has spoken with Juventus who are looking to offload players but none that I would expect Wolves to be interested in. The Spurs coach would like him as an upgrade to Sissoko (who has now left) and Ndombele but it is likely both would need to leave as they have added another addition in midfield as well - if Winks were sold an offer is possible.. Chelsea have a preference for another player. Arsenal have been very interested but could be out of the picture if they do not achieve Champions League football. The player wants to move to Barcelona, but it would need players in exchange or them to remove wages from the accounts - but they should not be ruled out - and I expect they may push.}

Thank you Ed002. Appreciate the detailed information.

2.) 30 May 2022 18:39:34
Ed, would De Jong to United enable Barcelona to move for Neves?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but they are completely unrelated.}

3.) 31 May 2022 14:22:27
Seems like De Jong is determined to stay in Catalonia.

4.) 02 Jun 2022 09:54:02
I would take neves over de jong and saves us from going after a player who does not want to move. I also think neves is proven pl player and not sure how de jong will handle the pace of the pl and physicality. Might turn out to be another tulip.

Hearing reports of a player revolt against Ole now. Paper talk or reality? Anyone from Manchester, what's the word on the streets?

United Addict

1.) 08 Nov 2021 08:14:08
See my post on banter.

2.) 08 Nov 2021 09:32:50
Lots ofcontrasting media chatter about whether United will sack Ole or give him more time, but the balance is now tipping towards the former.

My take is that United know he needs to go, but have no replacement lined up yet, so they need to keep their cards close to their chest.

As soon as they get something sorted out, he will go: has to, given poor coaching, favouritism, senior players unhappy etc.

Rogers the favourite: undoubtedly a good coach, but question marks hang over him.

I’d bring in Laurent Blanc on a temporary basis and either keep him on if he does a good job, or give him another job in United when Pochettino or Ten Haag are viable.

3.) 09 Nov 2021 12:43:37
More worrying. Rumours Woodward is to be offered a consultancy role. In what. abysmal recruitment?



25 Oct 2021 20:38:57
Contact with Conte initiated.

United Addict

1.) 25 Oct 2021 22:36:54
I don't think so.

From F Romano: Conte is ready to accept whenever United make contact. Still none, as of yet.

2.) 25 Oct 2021 23:19:21
You just know they useless tools that run the club will stick with the incompetent one.

3.) 25 Oct 2021 23:32:02
Let’s hope it stays that way.

4.) 26 Oct 2021 08:42:28
twenty, why?

Do you want Ole to get completely destroyed before he leaves?

Looks like FdJ is another Pogba situation where the player doesn't want to come. Romero reporting some "bomb" news regarding mufc, can only imagine it is pulling the plug on FdJ and Ed002 saying that MU is struggling with FdJ.

United Addict

1.) 29 Jun 2022 16:12:38
He never said it had anything to utd and he confirmed it wasn't related to FDJ.

2.) 29 Jun 2022 16:21:32
There's plenty of stories out there saying he's on his way as well. If he joins I'll be over the moon, if he doesn't, while disappointing, I'm sure we have other targets.

3.) 29 Jun 2022 16:50:16
I am sorry if i misunderstood. It had a #mufc at the end which caused this.

4.) 29 Jun 2022 17:00:09
Oh the panic ? let’s believe everything negative and ignore all positive stories. If he doesn’t want to come we don’t want him anyway, sounds like the press need to sell more papers to me.

5.) 29 Jun 2022 17:41:46
I love of these online twerps and their exclusives.

One of them the other day had an exclusive United mega deal for 115 Mill for Anthony and martinez with Ajax.

Of course for the last two weeks people been saying 70 Mill for Anthony and 45 Mill for Martinez constantly.

That exclusive required him to get his calculator out.

6.) 29 Jun 2022 17:45:56
Good dodge if his heart isn’t in it.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 17:55:14
GDS2, before laughing it off, go and take a look at what Ed002 said on the rumours page. I didn't believe what was on twitter but when Ed said we were struggling, i just put 2 and 2 together.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 20:10:03
Really looking forward to seeing fdj playing for us.
Top player imo.
Epl is a different challenge but I've every faith in him to get to grips with it and help us move the ball quicker and playing a more technical possession based game.
He will be the fulcrum of the side. Will it work out? Only time will tell but this signing condemns ole ball and Jose men behind the ball football firmly into history.
Mcfred is dead. ?.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 20:10:46
They’re struggling to reach an agreement for the add ons. The targets need to be achievable I’m guessing for Barcelona to sign off on the deal.

I’m personally struggling to be interested at this point, not just De Jong but with every single piece of transfer news.

I’m more interested in the little snippets of Ten Hag in pre season.

10.) 29 Jun 2022 22:16:47
Fingers crossed he comes ken. Ed reckons we are struggling.

11.) 30 Jun 2022 08:26:48
Wait n see angel.



16 Jun 2022 17:04:46
It feels like and this is just an assumption that our transfer activity is dependent on this de jong deal. We just want to wait and see how much of a budget we are willing to put into this deal and what is the rest of it. Barcelona aren't sure themselves as to what they want for de jong and once that is settled i think our activity will kick on. Its fruitless comparing our activity with the others. I think De jong will happen sooner rather than later and then the others, may be Antony, torres and a few free wild cards.

United Addict

1.) 16 Jun 2022 18:34:39
Or maybe the Glazers are doing what they do best and giving the bear minimum to keep us fighting for top 4 and that's about it.
Honestly, the fixtures were out this morning and I can't get excited about it any more.
Maybe a relegation battle will focus the thieving owners into selling the club.

2.) 16 Jun 2022 19:17:10
We know how much they want for the player,

Makes me laugh, ten hag has convinced him to join and in that time the club have dithered with what we are willing to pay

We paid 80 million for slab head

Just pay the money and get the players the manager wants so he can start to implement his plan for the season

Its the same sh**e every summer.

3.) 16 Jun 2022 20:42:43
We’ve ‘allegedly’ offered 52 for him and Barcelona want 70. In the real world surely you’d just go back and say meet in the middle?

4.) 16 Jun 2022 22:09:07
Who knows what goes on in these negotiations.

I always imagined you make an offer it's either accepted, rejected outright or rejected and told but we will accept X figure. You then either offer more or walk away.

It just feels like when we get told a figure we then dither as if we expect them to crumble. As if they have no choice but to sell whereas clubs nowadays have a lot more money and don't have to roll over to survive.

Every deal feels like a saga.

5.) 16 Jun 2022 22:19:53
I'd hire Del boy as the Negotiator haha.

6.) 16 Jun 2022 22:40:55
You make an offer and they either accept or don't. Each transfer is different some clubs will be prepared to meet some won't. It is up to us to offer whatever it is they are prepared to say yes too

Problem is it seems we can't negotiate, it's like we put in an offer then expect them to crumble. When they don't we don't look like we can.

7.) 16 Jun 2022 22:42:20
When we put in an offer it doesn't look like we are very good at moving on, it's like we have a planned offer make it and then become stuck over what to do next.

At the end of it all. Money Speaks!

If rumours are true, and he's allowed back then I am absolutely done with the club. The audio was horrifying.

2.) 13 Jun 2022 08:07:00
As far as I can tell a rumour has appeared overnight on twatter, that's it.

I would ignore it, at this moment he appears under investigation and United are highly unlikely to do anything including dismiss him until the full investigative and any subsequent Court process is completed.

I also read the FA announced this update in many twatter posts. What would it have to do with the FA?

3.) 13 Jun 2022 09:43:24
I have no idea what has changed overnight, but I would be highly surprised if we see him again at this level - he'll be hounded at literally every ground he goes to.

4.) 13 Jun 2022 09:58:59
Nothings changed. A rumour started on twitter and this has happened at least 3/ 4 times in the past 8 weeks.

We will know the outcome when it’s ready to come out, it will not be leaked on twitter by a bunch of faceless profiles idiots.

5.) 13 Jun 2022 15:30:18
I would be amazed if you ever see him in a united shirt again, but he will play again somewhere, I would prefer it never happened but it will, football don’t seem to have morals when it suits.



22 May 2022 18:53:41
Ed014, all said and done, once the dust has settled, no matter how poor RR has been and however great Arteta has been, however poor our whiners has been and however great your youngsters have been, welcome to Thursday night football. Both of us in the same boat mate. let's go for it. ????.

United Addict

{Ed014's Note - woah UA, when has Arteta ever been great? ??

Have a great summer mate and we’ll see you in the final of the Thursday night cup! ???

1.) 22 May 2022 19:18:37
All the best to you buddy. If these whiners continue to play like this season, it is more likely we will be out in the group stages.
Have good holidays.

{Ed014's Note - who knows mate, ETH could be the one to sort it. Take care bud.

2.) 22 May 2022 19:24:45
Zrent we going to change the rules so we qualify for the ECL?



22 May 2022 15:50:46
Is Rashford to Real a real possibility? I read somewhere that a 90M transfer was on after the Mbappe snub. I would bite their hand off. And throw Martial for free.

United Addict

1.) 22 May 2022 16:21:31
I would love Rashford to kick on from his early promise but he has been mis-firing last 2 seasons, albeit played non-stop when clearly injured in one of them. But £90m for Rashford would be an insanely over the top price. Agree with United Addict they could have Martial for free there too.

2.) 22 May 2022 16:28:35
Talk about triple blow. If I was a Real fan and I'd been expecting Mbappe and lost out on both him and the likely second choice Haaland, then Rashford turned up, I think I'd lose it big time.
Rashford shouldn't be running a penalty shootout at a summer fete.

3.) 22 May 2022 18:24:40
Real can always get Mo Salah.
Salah has been amazing for so many years now.

4.) 22 May 2022 19:23:33
Rashford would tear it up in madrid, people underestimate how tought he pl is. He may have struggled for form for a hit bit as they say form Is temporary class is permanent.

5.) 22 May 2022 19:26:38
Would someone pay 90 million for Rashford? Next people will be paying 80 million for a donkey CB who can't run, turn around or read the game.

Sorry but perhaps i am missing something. Which players have the owners not paid up for or not willing to. hasn't the fee been agreed with Barcelona for quite some time now and that too in excess of 80M? So where is the issue with the owners here. Its literally EtH running the show here. All 3 signed have been his targets and all targetted are again his. don't get the hatred with the owners here.

If he wants to go, then he can but not Chelsea for sure. But i really don't want us to go into next season with Rashford and Martial as our first choice strikers.

Hi Ed002, who would these first choice targets be for Man Utd that we are struggling with? I thought FdJ was first choice in that position and we look to be set to be getting him. Has something changed.
Thanks as always for your inputs.

Its really the same love in that Rashford gets. Rashford was playing in a toxic dressing room, so was vdb. Rashford was playing under different managers, so was vdb. Only difference is that Rashford actually got minutes to play while vdb only got a couple of hours worth of actual football time. If you want you could watch a few Ajax games of vdb and then come back with questions.

Publicly slating the players. Where have i seen that before? Perhaps a tactic applied by the much maligned Jose, who in fact was right.

You still haven't given the list Rohan. Basically if you dig deep you will find issues with every player. Now i did not say i knew better but one thing i can safely say is that we have signed 3 players and all of them improve us so i am willing to trust ETH's judgement on his recruits. I guess you already know by now that we are not a big pull anymore so most good players have tons 9f options to chose from before they fall down to our level.
By the way did we do a proper background check on Giggs and Greenwood? Were there no youtube videos on them? Will have Rabiot over those womanizers every day of the week.
