Lukaku absent from training today.

The plot thickens.

Wazza

1.) 11 Jul 2019 12:54:47
Martial too, maybe it's a buy one get one free deal.

The club line is that both were doing gym work.


2.) 11 Jul 2019 12:59:13
Both seem to be carrying knocks.


3.) 11 Jul 2019 13:29:58
Lukaku seems to be carrying a few spare tires.


4.) 11 Jul 2019 14:08:59
I really don't get it why Lukaku is getting this from our fans. If you are telling me that Lingard, Rashford, Martial or Sanchez were better than him the last 2 seasons, then you know nothing of football.


5.) 11 Jul 2019 15:58:30
Or maybe the fact he doesn't like being told he's not first choice and has been making cows eyes at Conte all summer doesn't help his case.

To be fair you don't need a reason.

Hi Ed's seems to be a new player linked to us every day as silly season approaches. Any truth in today's reports that United have approached Fulham over Sessegnon? He fits the profile of the other two players we've been strongly linked with.

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have asked about a price but are aware of serious interest from elsewhere.}


1.) 17 May 2019 20:07:24
Itd be interesting if wed be happy to meet their asking price. Spurs would also be a good option for him.


2.) 17 May 2019 20:09:21
Thanks once again Ed. I think I’ve seen you say elsewhere Spurs are interested.

Thought he had a difficult season but clearly has potential.

{Ed002's Note - Fulham decided he was not ready to step up, but Spurs are indeed keen.}


3.) 17 May 2019 20:17:49
Thank you Ed, have a good weekend.


4.) 18 May 2019 13:51:36
Sky Bet and Sky up to their usual tricks again.


 

 

10 Apr 2019 07:21:01
Ed's based on the comment below about Lozano perhaps being a Sanchez replacement, is there any firm interest in Sanchez? I did RTP but all I can see so far is that he'd be difficult to move on.

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - No. As I have explained it will be very difficult to move him on.}


1.) 10 Apr 2019 12:36:02
Thanks Ed.


2.) 10 Apr 2019 12:36:36
Ed002 is it true Sanchez signed a 5 year contract. If, so that seems an excessive contract given his age.

{Ed002's Note - 4.5 years.}


3.) 10 Apr 2019 14:38:16
Thanks ED002. Seems a ridiculous contract to hand out.

Can you give your opinion on Woodward at all?

{Ed002's Note - It has not changed from what I have previously said.}


4.) 10 Apr 2019 17:17:37
Tha is ED, I can't quite remember what you said, I'll try and search.

Do United still hold interest in Mourinho's summer targets such as the likes of Perisic and Alderweireld? Or can we expect a compromise of sorts due to other's clear resistance at signing 'older' players?

If Mourinho is to stay then surely the board either need to go after his targets, or Mourinho is made to shift his approach and target different players which would completely go against who he is and the type of player he has targeted historically.

Can we expect to see any youth players step up as the season progresses or will that purely be down to any injuries to first-team players?

Wazza

1.) 05 Dec 2018 10:45:22
I suspect we will have a very quiet January window due to the uncertainty of the managers position. We might see a player or two leave if the right offers cone in for the right players (Darmian, Rojo ect maybe) .

But I don't see any significant players joining, at most maybe a youngster or two for the academy.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 15:08:56
I think the same Shappy. When the January window closes we will have a good idea as to Mourinho’s fate.


3.) 05 Dec 2018 15:34:45
I think if a player who is of top quality becomes avaliable such as alderweireld we would still go in for him because even if a new manager comes in, he's not the type of player who can't adapt to a new manager.

But agree we should use the january window to get rid of players. Romero, valencia, young, smalling, jones, rojo, herrera, matic, fellaini, periera, sanchez, darmian etc would probably be for sale before you even get to players who want to leave such as pogba bailly and martial.


4.) 05 Dec 2018 18:02:40
I think we could see a much busier January window in general than previous years. With the summer window shutting early I think there were lots of potential deals not completed because the selling clubs were reluctant to lose players with little time to replace them.
I guess time will tell, eh.


 

 

07 Aug 2018 11:41:29
It's getting late in the window but if Pogba does leave in the coming days would anyone take Ramsey as his replacement?

I'm not saying it will happen, just trying to draw names who could replace PP if he leaves.

Last season Ramsey scored more goals, same assists per minute, less shots per goal, more on target, same passing accuracy, less cards. He basically does what we employ Pogba to do but a bit better in a weaker team (! ) .

Probably be available for a reasonable price with 1 year remaining on his contract and would take up half of the wages that Pogba does.

Would anyone else take Ramsey or offer up any other names we've not already been linked with?

Wazza

1.) 07 Aug 2018 11:49:00
Would love one of the below -
Pjanic
Modric
Kovacic
Kroos.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 11:52:51
Big fan of Ramsey if played in the correct position!


3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:26:22
would love Erickson from spurs.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 13:17:21
Prefer Verrati to any of them.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:54:34
Bolger,

I presume you mean Eriksen? They want £60m for a defender in the last year of his contract, I imagine Levy would want £250m for Eriksen, no thanks.


6.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:14
Bolger - iirc we were favourites to sign Eriksen around the time he was breaking through at Ajax but SAF thought he was too slow for the Premier League. I seem to remember us playing Ajax at the time and he did stand out.

He's a great player to watch on his day.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:03:12
Pogba is better than all of them. There is nobody we could realistically sign who will be anywhere near as capable as Pogba. Disaster if we sell him.


8.) 07 Aug 2018 14:52:00
yeah GDS that one,

not the phone company.


9.) 07 Aug 2018 14:54:14
so72,

he does have the ability to be one of the best, but he doesn't have the work rate to fulfill this.

if we are honest with ourselves he hasn't done anything to warrent the fee we paid.

if players don't want to play for us then just get rid.


10.) 07 Aug 2018 16:46:19
If we sell him we will regret it. I reckon Pogba absolutely does want to play for Utd, he doesn't get used to his strength and doesn't like Mourinho - a very common occurence it would seem. The boy has immense talent, he has ego and he bossed the World Cup with France. Whoever replaces Moirinho (when he inevitably gets the sack) will want Pogba in their team!


11.) 07 Aug 2018 17:37:31
I wish that you are right so72 however I don't think he cares about the club, only himself.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 17:27:50
Pogba has been played in a midfield two and played very well, and then in a three (his preferred position if his large agent is to be believed) and he has flattered to deceive.

I don’t buy into this whole Mourinho doesn’t get the best out of him nonsense. Midfielders should be able to play with tactical discipline and still express themselves. He hasn’t really done that since he’s returned, definitely not at the level FIFA players seem to think he is capable of. I don’t particularly like my manager, but I still have a job to do and I like the company I work for, therefore I do it to the best of my ability. PS I’m not getting paid 300k per week for it.

So regardless of ‘unfinished business’ at United for him, and taking misplaced romanticism out of the equation, he has been a disappointment and done little to show he is capable of performing week in, week out in the premier League. He has bags of ability but I’m not sure he has the mentality to really make a difference at our club. Give me SMS, Pjanic, Modric over him any day of the week.

Reading the opinions on here today, I think now is a good time to remember what this website is about. People tend to stick around on here due to the quality content, respectful opinions and particularly the Eds who put a lot of time and effort into running the site and sharing their insights. If you want to see what it's like without their input just head over to the Chelsea page.

I'm not sure if there's been an influx of new members on here lately, but there seems to be a common theme which is to have a rant. There are other online forums for doing that where the so called "toxics" hang out.

Shappy, you made a good post further down the page about who our 'rivals' have signed, unfortunately it's been buried under trash.

What you point out can't really be argued with. We've made 1 good signing so far in Daniel James, he's one for the future and he seems to be level headed which is key for us at the moment.

All the noises are that we are close on AWB. I don't get the argument that we should "pay what it takes". Anyone with even a basic understanding of business, let alone with bills to pay, will know that money is finite.

Other names are mentioned all over the media, you don't have to look far. 002 has given us a comprehensive list just recently, you only have to read that to know we are looking at a number of players.

We can't and won't sign everybody. When do we sign 10 players in a window? When have we signed 5 players after the window just opened? I can think back to when we signed Anderson and Hargreaves quickly (and perhaps 1 other), but that's it.

I get the frustration but we've made bad decisions and now we have to pay for them. I didn't hear anybody complaining when we signed Pogba or Sanchez (or Fred or Matic), myself included. At the time, they were "exactly what we need".

There's plenty of time left yet. People seem to think that because nothing is announced, nothing is happening. Since when have we had blow by blow updates about transfers from the club (or the Eds) . We will sign more players. We've already signed 1 more player than the other teams in the top 6. I'm sure there will be at least another few, if not more.

1.) 26 Jun 2019 13:22:26
Good post Wazza.


2.) 26 Jun 2019 18:30:37
I stopped getting excited about transfer targets a few years ago. I'm more interested about getting the players to gel as a team instead of playing as individuals. Once we solve that then we can look at moving forward and challenging for some cups, a league challenge is a long way off at the moment.


 

 

20 Jun 2019 13:07:43
Adrien Rabiot. On the European pages, Ed 002 has said that United have a plan for him while Juventus have made an offer, but others have stepped back.

What are people's thoughts on him? He's an upgrade on Herrera imo, but costlier. Still only 24 as well, so potentially a good option for 5+ years with his peak years still to come.

Wazza

1.) 20 Jun 2019 13:23:56
I would take him, he'd instantly be a starter for us. But that's not saying much because our midfield is pretty weak right now.

Last thing I heard was Juve had got him, but we'll see.


2.) 20 Jun 2019 13:34:20
If Pogba leaves, I would like to see a midfield trio of Bruno Fernandes, Saul Niguez and Ndombele.
Since Ndombele is not a United target, the next preference would be Rabiot or Declan Rice.


3.) 20 Jun 2019 13:45:12
Given our experience with players with perceived “attitude” problems and “abrasive” agents, i would find it odd if we committed a huge chunk of wages on him and his parent/ guardian.

Also what is his best position, he has been on record i think saying he is not particularly interested in playing holding midfield, i.e as a potential matic replacement. Then you have to consider if he provides enough going forwards to played in the advanced midfield positions.

One of those that makes sense in theory by doesn't hold up in practice.


4.) 20 Jun 2019 14:21:38
Reports in the press today have Ndombele agent coming to England to talk to Spurs and United.


5.) 20 Jun 2019 14:25:47
DSG, I'm sure I've read on here that Rabiot is no longer using his mother as his agent. PSG treated him badly and now his name is mud.

I think he's more suited to a 6 than a 4. Box to box midfielder who gets about the pitch.


6.) 20 Jun 2019 15:46:17
I would be tempted to take a gamble on him. There aren't many players of his quality available for even twice the cost he would cost us.

Yes there are questions over his attitude, yet there weren't any until he fell out with PSG. So I wonder if that was just a specific incident.

Considering how many players we need to sign this summer, I think he is a gamble worth taking.


 

 

10 Jun 2019 12:37:31
001, he's the talk of this page at the moment. Any chance of a PP on Bruno Fernandes?

Wazza

{Ed001's Note - he is on the list don't worry.}

Thank you Ed.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

Eds if you have time.

What are your thoughts on Mr Agnelli's proposed restructure of European football?

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - It is a proposal to try to placate the “elite” sides considering breaking away.}


1.) 13 May 2019 22:13:11
Thanks 002. It did sound similar, with a relegation system too. Has this proposal been taken seriously do you know? The ‘media’ claim not.

{Ed002's Note - The clubs are against it.}


2.) 14 May 2019 07:25:00
Thanks for your replies Ed.


 

 

12 May 2019 08:31:51
Morning Ed's hope you've had a great weekend.

Do United still have interest in Danny Rose as he looks to be leaving Spurs this summer, or are other positions a priority now that Shaw is back in favour?

Wazza

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no interest from MU in Danny Rose right now.}


1.) 12 May 2019 10:18:51
Thank you Ed have a good day.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 12 May 2019 17:21:57
I wouldn't look at a LB this window. There are so many other positions that need sorting out before we bring in competition for Luke Shaw.

If we bring in a first choice RB then Dalot can be the rotation option with Shaw and the new RB and still play 30 games next season.

I'm in two minds about who I would want at RB though. AWB has been a phenomenon this season and appears to have the attitude and work ethic we need, with the advantage of being a homegrown player. But at his age he might block Dalot in the medium to long term. Meunier might be a better option age wise, but is he good enough defensively for the EPL? He doesn't get tested properly in France especially playing for PSG who spend 90% of most matches attacking. In truth I would be happy with either, but can see a potential draw back in each of them.

I'm sure everybody involved with the transfer is aware of that. These things take time. It's not like buying a packet of fags.

We should take however long is needed to get the best deal for us.

Salford it's unrealistic to compare two different games of football, especially friendlies.

We already know that City are better than us.

However these are friendlies. We won, which in the grand scheme of things doesn't really mean anything, but you still look to find a negative from it.

Who cares what City are doing in a friendly?

We played well, scored 4 goals, kept a clean sheet, lots of players had a good game, youth looking promising, it’s only a friendly, on the other side of the world, at a time when nobody is really watching.

Don’t get your knickers in a twist.
