Ed002, if you don't mind indulging. I don't recall if you have ever mentioned this name in recent times, but Tielemans. I know he is a target elsewhere, but do you know of any United interest, as I believe that he would be a fantastic addition.


{Ed002's Note - Youri Tielemans (CM) right now he will not sign a new contract so will be available in the summer at a reduced fee. His agent confirmed that there is interest from Real Madrid who are looking for a Luka Modric replacement, interest from Spurs and that he has been approached by a third party representing Newcastle. He is aware that other clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool, have scouted the player but not declared an interest. Interest of the Manchester sides has probably gone as both are looking at other midfield options but they will be back if they cannot get their first choice players - and MU are struggling. Arsenal and Juventus provide wildcard options but Arsenal will have to focus on fixing other issues in the squad first and Juventus, whilst needing significant midfield changes are looking to preferred options. I suspect that Real Madrid will shift their interest leaving Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal to work on a transfer.}

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.

{Ed002's Note - The club are struggling over de Jong.}

2.) 29 Jun 2022 14:49:12

It looks like the club will struggle lost their "amateur" badge.

3.) 29 Jun 2022 15:17:05
Ed002. Many thanks for that. Have a good week.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

4.) 29 Jun 2022 16:24:42
Ed - as always respect you sharing the info etc but have there been developments this afternoon on the FDJ front?
Several large media outlets are now saying fee agreed and that the player is open to joining United and all that remains is personal terms. Is this now accurate?

{Ed002's Note - I am not the one to give bow-by-blow updates.}

5.) 29 Jun 2022 17:07:19
I don't think anyone other than those dealing with the deal really know what is going on.

People are reporting what FDJ is thinking, how does anyone truly know what someone else is thinking. At best it's a judgement made from comments he has said in public.

From what little I know, it's unusual for a club to negotiate with a player before an agreement has been made with the club.

Which means it's unlikely that the club is in discussions with FDJ yet.

That said, clubs also rarely bother submitting offers unless they know the player is at least open to joining the club.

From the outside looking in it looks like Barcelona need to sell, not just to raise funds but to save on wages.

The player would prefer to stay at one of the biggest clubs in the world and at a club that had a close affiliation with Ajax. At a guess I'd also say he'd rather play UCL football next season. At least that is what the player has said publicly.

United and specifically EtH really wants the player and sees them as a key component of the team he is trying to build. Again this is what is being reported.

Now we just need to let the people at both clubs, the player and his agent work together to work something out. I'm sure we'll know what is happening in the next couple of days one way or another.

6.) 29 Jun 2022 17:19:52
If we don't manage to get de jong after all this, the meme club have peaked.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 17:51:29
Laurie Whitwell has confirmed a deal has been agreed.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 20:10:23
I prey to god tielemans is not in a ubited shirt. Do so average imo. Save the money and would rather have fred and mc in cm and buy in next window a proper cm. Buying for the sake of buying is what we have been doing.

9.) 29 Jun 2022 20:43:30
Latest is that FDJ is traveling to Manchester tomorrow by helicopter. Big twist, it’s being piloted by Schniedurer and he’s finally joining too.

10.) 29 Jun 2022 20:55:24
Would just sum up our transfer dealings of the past few years if fdj doesn't want to join. Spend ages chasing someone that doesn't really want to come. Do we not atleast ask agents before we waste time chasing players that don't want to come.

11.) 29 Jun 2022 23:38:02

When things don’t sound true they probably aren’t. Best to just wait and see.

12.) 30 Jun 2022 07:59:36
The downside of being a Utd supporter is that they’re still the biggest attraction in the media for selling stories so we get these ridiculous and contradicting reports, and blow by blow updates of every single transfer. It’s tedious, frustrating and 90% made up.

I hate the transfer window with a passion.



21 Jul 2019 16:59:25
I believe the maguire deal is done. All happy with the signing?


1.) 21 Jul 2019 17:46:18
Could well be our era's Steve Bruce signing. But what a great stop gap to lead Lindelof and Tuanzabe. Ultimately when it comes to replacing a player of Maguire's ability you at the very top of the market.
Would be a smart signing.

2.) 21 Jul 2019 17:58:49
Not my first choice I’ll admit but he will improve our defence which is looking much stronger and more balanced now.
It should also allow a couple to depart.

3.) 21 Jul 2019 18:01:57
Expensive stop gap 😂.

4.) 21 Jul 2019 18:19:03
Why do we think it's done? Obviously you mean pending medical but I've only seen unreliable reports atm.

Have i missed something.

5.) 21 Jul 2019 18:26:52
We haven't signed him yet.

6.) 21 Jul 2019 18:36:59
Not a great fan, but I hope he does well if he does arrive. Hopefully those who think like me will give him a chance, and not turn on him if he doesn't hit the ground running.

7.) 21 Jul 2019 19:07:25
Same as you Nou. I think there are better options out there but will back him a 100%. I do think he is an improvement.

8.) 21 Jul 2019 21:47:13
Expensive but the best we can get and we moan the club don't spend.

9.) 21 Jul 2019 21:59:44
Your going to back him 100% .
For how long?

10.) 21 Jul 2019 22:46:57
Jred, There are a lot of players who have come through the doors at the club who do not have the right attitude. If I question a player, I know it is justified.

Maguire, needs a proper chance at the club to show his worth. If we look at him a couple of years down the road and let's say he is consistently out of shape or simply not giving it his all, he will be questioned.

Hope that helps 😊.

11.) 22 Jul 2019 01:30:04
So about the same time people give managers before questioning them. Players and managers all need support until they have shown their worth. Some people call for managers to be sacked some call for players to be sold.
Some opinions change if players improve or managers improve or indeed over time. Sometimes patience pays off sometimes it doesn't
Opinions in football are as fluid as players form and performances.

12.) 22 Jul 2019 01:42:20
Only time will tell with maguire.
I think he will do well.
Im well aware of his alleged frailties but he has attributes we need. The timing is right. I predict he will like AWB be a huge fan faviurite.
The money is crazy but that's the way it is.
I can't think of a lower risk option.
If he and awb help us concede a dozen less goals then its money well spent.
He is a tryer he is playing at a level well above where his good given talent affords him.
Just like carragher neville terry adams bruce even today at top clubs davison sanchez at spurs loveren or matip at Liverpool luiz at chelsea stones at city. Maguire is better than all of them and they play most weeks.
Maguire will improve our team and imo would get into any top 6 side ahead of those in mentioned.

13.) 22 Jul 2019 05:45:36
At the moment, Maguire will walk into our side.
Moves Lindelof to his preferred Right side.
Dangerous in set piece at both the boxes.
Can pick a pass which means he is another attacking outlet.
Ofcourse he has his deficiencies, But I would easily pick him over Jones or Smalling or Rojo.

We are not challenging for the title. We cannot offer Champions League.
Do you guys really think it is attractive for the likes of Varane or De Ligt to join us?
We need to be realistic.



05 Jul 2019 13:45:05
Seems like you're bang on with Fernandes. We are very keen.

Will you be doing any sharkopods this summer?


{Ed002's Note - I hope so. My issue has been a great deal of travel and even though I am in England right now it is only for a few more days.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 14:01:11
Ed I have a story about travel.
This blonde woman got on a plane and went to sit in first class, the stewardess noticed she hadn't paid first class, sorry you will have to move to the back of the plane, I'm blonde I'm beautiful and I'm going to Dublin she said and wouldn't move, so the stewardess told the Co pilot and captain, the Co pilot went back same thing I'm blonde I'm beautiful and I'm going to Dublin.
Soo the captain says I have a blonde wife ill deal with this, he went back whispered in her ear and she got up and moved to the back of the plane, what did you sayto her says the co pilot, I just told her only the back of the plane was going to Dublin😊.

{Ed002's Note - Very good. What's the difference between American pilots and Iraqi pilots? American pilots break ground and fly into the wind.}

2.) 05 Jul 2019 15:12:59
Perhaps we could take you on a tour of the cobbled streets of Manchester Ed 😁.

3.) 05 Jul 2019 16:30:06
Very good ed.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 18:06:38
We hope so too ed! Safe travels.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:55:56
Sorry guys, as an Iraqi I find the above joke very offensive.

{Ed002's Note - But sadly you are no more than a cretinous liar.}

6.) 05 Jul 2019 23:49:01
Mutanabi it's a joke, I'm all my life listening to jokes about Irishman, cork men, whatever but I laugh at them. Lighten up and laugh it helps.



08 Oct 2018 06:36:00
Ed001 if you're about. it'd be great to know your opinion on the daily mirror journalist who has had his media pass revoked by United?


{Ed001's Note - I don't know anything about the journalist sorry. I do know his pass was revoked because he was set to talk to BeIn Sports TV channel about his story on Jose being set to be sacked pitchside before the game at the weekend. The club were upset that he would do so during the build up to a match right there. Understandably I think. In my opinion they had every right to stop him disrupting the build up to an important game like that.}

1.) 08 Oct 2018 07:35:44
Thanks ed001. I just meant about the situation.

I wish clubs clamped down harder on journalist in general. I know clubs should be open to scrutiny but the level of crap that has been written about united recently, I was happy to see action being taken.

{Ed001's Note - so you want clubs to dictate to newspapers what they can write? You are advocating censorship? Sorry I disagree. That story came from a legitimate source within the club, he had every right to write it and put it out there.}

2.) 08 Oct 2018 07:41:21
Esq could you give your views on our current state if you have time. The media have placed the blame firmly on Jose but I think that is very much incorrect. Although he isn't the best suited manager out their to the "United way" some of the players have been appalling to say the least and it seems he hasn't been backed 100% by the board. As a fan what I ask of from everyone involved is first and foremost 100% effort. It shouldn't matter whether you like the manager or not, whether you like the tealady or not, if you are a part of the association then you can't have these childish attitude towards the club and I don't just mean it for United and United players. You should be true to your job and fully professional at the least.

It happened at Chelsea, it happened at Leicester too, 2 prime examples of the recent times. I think player power is starting to get out of control in football as a whole.

On a side note Ed 1, who do you think United will go for if (when? ) Jose goes out of the door and who do you think we should go after? I think we might go for Zidane and I think it would be the 2nd worst choice (first being Big Sam) . I think when we go for a new manager, we should do what City and Liverpool have done, get a manager that plays the desired style of football, has a bit of success proven himself somewhere for a few years and give him 2_3 years time before demanding all sorts of results and that goes for us fans too. We should do a proper rebuild of the club and how it is run.

Rant over

{Ed001's Note - it is never 100% totally one person's fault, but Jose has to take a large portion of the blame, over 50% of it, for the way he has handled things. He has been confrontational and never willing to compromise. He has been deliberately obstructive at times and has come into the job in all the wrong way from the start. That has turned the board and players against him, when initially they were almost entirely on his side.

This is not the same situation as at either Chelsea or Leicester. This is a man who knew there were people who were not keen on his appointment and then has deliberately and wilfully antagonised them by making it known he hated living in Manchester and refusing to buy a house in the area. If you start a relationship at someone's throat and you are unwilling to compromise, the only way it goes is downhill.

He has put himself into a situation where he has made it all about himself and his demands. Only he is to blame for that.

Both the board and the players could have responded better to his actions, you are correct, but the mess there right now is largely down to Jose.

Having said that, just getting rid of Jose will not fix it, as he is just the major problem, not the whole problem. There is a need to remove Ed Woodward from any involvement with the football side of things at all, I would argue that should probably extend to the whole of United, as the achievements he has made are those any junior executive should have been able to do. A genuine football person needs to come in to oversee the football side of things, to create a blueprint for the type of football the club, as a whole, will look to play and to bring in the people to achieve that goal at all levels. That is far more important than the manager, in modern day football, as they are the roles the old school football manager at clubs like United used to fulfil. Ferguson was never a coach, in fact there were large periods where he never even got time to get to the training ground. United need to stop trying to hang on to this idealised version of what he did and move into the real world and see what he actually did. Once that is done, then the club can catch the team on the other side of the city.

As for a replacement, I really don't know. The desire of most is a big name or club legend, as anyone else would be an issue with regards to club profile and stock market value. Which is why Zidane is favourite. Because of that I do think I think I can remove options like Howe from the running. It does look like Zidane, Carrick or Giggs, as there are very few other options out there.}

3.) 08 Oct 2018 07:58:11
Dictate? I've just read my post again and that's a bit of a leap made by you.

There is a constant stream of bull**** stories published by the English media and most of the time they are never held accountable.

Something has to be done.

The next time a journalist wants to go pitchside and discuss a story like that before a game, he might think twice.

What about all of the other stories written without a shred of information or sources?

{Ed001's Note - what about them? That is not up to the club to stop, that is up to the morons who keep clicking on the links. All you have to do is not click on them as a fanbase and they will go away.}

4.) 08 Oct 2018 08:15:49
Ed, In this day and age. do you think that is going to happen? Really? In a world of brexit and President Trump.

I think as a journalist you stop with writing the clickbait crap, if you don't do that, I think you should be held accountable for your own nonsense.

{Ed001's Note - I agree it shouldn't be written, but if people are dumb enough to keep clicking the links, someone will keep writing them. I certainly wouldn't write it, I hate it with a passion and would love to see it vanish, but it is down to people as a whole to see sense and stop being such gullible fools and clicking on the links.}

5.) 08 Oct 2018 08:28:34
I know you don't write it. That's completely evident.

But the majority of these so called journalists have incredible following and ability to make people believe. That is the age that we live in unfortunately.

Someone has to be held accountable and I have no problem with journalists within the media rooms of clubs having their passes revoked by the clubs if they write complete and utter crap.

I'd imagine you'll see less and less of it being wrote as those journos live to be in those rooms. If they aren't there, then they don't get paid.

{Ed001's Note - I agree with the passes being revoked and it should be done publicly as well with a full explanation of why it has been revoked. I just disagree with your suggestion of clamping down harder. The problem is that you will end up with a situation like happened under Ferguson, when every journo who wrote the truth was banned in order to shut them up.}

6.) 08 Oct 2018 08:47:44
Lol I don't want it to go full dictator. I just don't believe that these people should be allowed to be in these media rooms when they are unable to do their job.

When i mean clamp down, I meant exactly what i elaborated on in the posts above. Thise writing absolutely crap should be held accountable. Those actually doing there job no matter how it reflects on the club should be actually be applauded. I know those journalists still exist and should be lauded.

{Ed001's Note - if the club could be trusted to do that fairly I would agree, but they can't. They are only interested in protecting their own interest.}

7.) 08 Oct 2018 08:50:16
I think a DOF of sorts is a must for Us, and if he is a guy that is liked by Fans and all then maybe the best option football wise as coach wouldn't be the hardest thing to achieve. And also ed1 I was never trying to say Jose is not at fault, what my point is people in general seem to think firing Jose and hiring a new manager will be solution I think Jose is, as you said, the biggest part of the problem but not the whole problem. I think this having to be a big name and/ or an ex player so that the fans will get behind them and the stock value won't plummet approach will eventually lead us into obscurity if not dealt with properly in time. If the club appoints a competent guy who is not yet a big name it doesn't matter to me as a fan and I think it shouldn't matter to others as well. What should matter is that the guy is leading us in the correct direction. Just a random name and not the first choice I would make but Eugenio Di Francesco will get my full backing if he is leading us to the correction direction irrespective of the fact that he is not a big name manager or has never played for United. On the other hand Mark Hughes would be a terrible choice although he is an ex player and so is Steve Bruce. This is already starting on the wrong side. Only half decent ex man it's player turned manager is Blanc and he isn't that great either. Our club is turning into a huge mess and that won't be solved just by saving Jose. It may be a start but that doesn't end there.

Also ed1 I was not trying to say that we are in the same position as Chelsea or Leicester. It was just an example of player power getting out of hand. Speaking of Leicester, what is Ranier up to these days, I think even he would be better than Zidane. I don't know why but I am not convinced by Zidane, although he has won more European trophy in 3 yrs than SAF managed in his whole Career. Something just doesn't seem right to me yet.

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't meaning it to suggest you were saying those things, it was just trying to address the whole discussion I have seen on the pages over recent weeks.

I agree on Zidane, he is not convincing at all.}

8.) 08 Oct 2018 08:56:56
So ed I know someone above has mentioned why and who would replace Jose, but have you heard anything about him leaving? Do you expect him to go soon? Personally I'd prefer to see Carrick and McKenna in charge for this season find a director of football by Christmas then see if the management issue needs to be changed at the end of the season or if those 2 are doing a good job.

{Ed001's Note - I do expect him to go because he has antagonised so many people it is only a matter of time before it comes to a head. Wins like the one at the weekend are only papering over the cracks. I don't know if the rumoured meeting did take place or not, but there is certainly a growing number of people who are pushing for him to be removed.}

9.) 08 Oct 2018 09:24:02
For all I have written above (with a million typos- do you guys even understand half of that, even I have to read it twice to be sure what I was trying to write) , United need to part ways with Jose and that is inevitable. However sweet the result at the weekend was, we were down 2_0 to a team that looks like will find hard to survive and that at home. Jose needs to take a huge share of the blame for that. The players need to put 100% effort, that is the minimum I as a fan expect but Jose is the guy in charge to ensure that does not change. Having a team full of players that don't seem like they want to break a sweat go out to play, well he makes the decision on who plays so he takes the blame too. Not all of it, but a huge chunk of it.

I think we could do a lot worse than Mr. Wenger for a shirt term solution. He might even end up being a good DOF ( who knows) . Also Conte is out of Job.
The number of so called big name manager out of job might make the board act quicker as they seemingly have the options available. Just off the top of my head Ranieri, Wenger, Zidane, Conte, Roger Schmidt, Sampaoli, they all are out of job and/ or in a position where they will be attainable a bit easily. A random name and he is at a club that was once a rival to us but wouldn't it be a hell of a journey if Mr Madman Bielsa was at our great club. That would be fun. If you think Pep plays exciting football, well he is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to high octane energetic football, a rollercoaster ride.

I know you would enjoy Bielsa at a top club ( maybe not at Utd) ed1.

On a side note Ed, with all this uncertainty is there any update on the transfer front or has this toxic environment halted the plan once more?


{Ed001's Note - the club will always continue to look at players but right now they do not even know who they will be recruiting for. It is difficult to sign players who want to know the coach who will be training them and picking them.}

10.) 08 Oct 2018 09:44:01
Exactly what I was fearing of. This kind of uncertainty happened under Van Has too and it led us to shafting a long term plan and taking the high road. Not the best decision but Van Has did warrant the sack. The club need to quickly decide what they want to do in this scenario, either fully back Jose or sack him. There are options available to the club so just make a well thought out logical decision that doesn't look at what the share prices will be tomorrow but rather looks at where will this potentially lead us to this time next year and year after that. A similar scenario resulted ultimately into this mess and also cost us Saul Niguez amongst others (according to ed2, we were going to hold+ a meeting with Atleti nut all plans were cancelled back then) . Don't want a repeat of similar situation where the club is direction less for a significant time.

Just imagine Sail in our Midfield. What a player he is, one of the best midfielders unlike someone who is always a potentially one of the best but doesn't have the time to take his head out of his backside.

{Ed001's Note - Saul is a fantastic player.}

11.) 08 Oct 2018 10:16:13
What would you do if you were incharge ed? Short term solution? Long term? Dof first? Or even stick with mourinho?

{Ed001's Note - right now you have to get through the season with as little damage as possible, so I would bring in a DoF with the remit to look over the club from top to bottom ready to get cracking next summer. Then I would give Jose a bit longer, to see if he can rein himself in long enough to see the team through. He only has to cope long enough for the DoF to identify the long term options and appoint one of them. But it has to be the man at the top first, as it needs to all stem from him.}

12.) 08 Oct 2018 10:24:18
Ed001 - I think that is superb reply and I totally agree with you about SAF. It is my understanding that as his career progressed he took a step back and became a brilliant delegator. He regularly changed his assistants and coaching staff to freshen things up, implement new ideas and keep the players motivated. He became more of an observer which gave him the advantage of being able to assess exactly what was going on at the football Club.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said any new DOF will become the most important person at the Club most certainly from a footballing perspective anyway. They will drive the footballing strategy and vision.

I was always slightly curious why we couldn't have adopted this approach when SAF retired. I think he could have remained in post for a couple of seasons as a figurehead whilst Moyes took control of the team. He would have been a valuable asset and maybe he could have been more actively involved in player recruitment aiding both Moyes and Woodward through a difficult first window. I'd have liked to have seen a slower more measured transition where Moyes was approached and offered the job as head coach ultimately taking the main role the following season or even the season after. It might just have given the Club time to find its feet and put measures in place to fill the massive void when SAF eventually retired. Of course this is all just pie in the sky reasoning but ultimately the great man was always going to retire and maybe his biggest legacy could have been overseeing the next step and ensuring the Club continued to dominate rather than just leaving a vacuous hole they have been unable to fill. Johan Cruyff left Barcelona with a footballing philosophy which has endured for decades even after his untimely death. He has provided the Club with a blueprint and recipe for continued success. I'd have like to have seen Utd follow suit with SAF engineering and planning his own retirement and legacy rather than just leaving suddenly. Of course this all sounds great in theory but I appreciate in reality it's easier said than done. Maybe he just couldn't commit any more of his time and things happened suddenly which we're out of his control. Its all ancient history now anyway.

{Ed001's Note - I think the problem you had was that Fergie was still around and it never works out when the previous, legendary, manager is still around. Busby stepped upstairs and it didn't help at all. Shankly was causing a similar issue at Liverpool after he quit, so he was asked to stay away. Cruyff went off to rebuild Ajax (if I remember correctly) so he was not there overshadowing his successors. Fergie is too strong a character to just put him to one side, unlike Paisley, for example, who acted as advisor when Dalglish was first appointed up until he fully retired in 1989 and then it all fell apart for Liverpool without him. When you have someone as strong as Fergie, it has to be a clean break or his shadow is over everything.

Your biggest problem was that he was in control of pretty much everything at the club. Great while he was there, but the minute he went it left a massive power vacuum that Eddy Woodwouldward could never hope to fill and Moyes had no intention of getting involved to that degree of micro-management. So you were left with a lot of people who no longer knew who to report to.}

13.) 08 Oct 2018 10:56:22
Is there any plans to remove Woodward or is he safe? He definitely needs to be removed from any influence over the football side.

{Ed001's Note - the plan is to appoint someone to come in and take over the football side from him but I don't believe his position to be in threat.}

14.) 08 Oct 2018 12:03:44
Hi Ed, thanks for your input into these posts it’s very interesting and helps to get some perspective.

I know things are all hypothetical but if Jose is removed in the near future do you see the club making a point to put in someone in the DoF post as the top priority?

Would make sense and have a temporary head coach until this position is filled?

{Ed001's Note - the club is already searching for one, so I would think that would be the way they would look to go.}

15.) 08 Oct 2018 12:07:18
Waking up and seeing the red response from you gives me goosebumps Ed001, seriously lol. Do agree with you, it is Jose's fault, preventable issues etc but getting rid of him won't sort everything out. But one thing, what is the need for him to buy a house if he's the only one living in it? City centre apartment is actually more convenient for him?

Also, did you see Mbappe's 4 goal haul yesterday? Incredible player with an elite mentality; saying he should have got a few more lol.

{Ed001's Note - because buying a house would allow his family to come up and stay in Manchester from time to time and visit him. It wouldn't have to be a house, but I just meant all that time in the hotel was just saying I am not putting down roots.

I haven't seen Mbappe's goals yet.}

Also, what do you think of Eddie Howe Ed? Seen his name mentioned quite a bit recenty.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced by Howe personally. His teams' are inconsistent because he has no idea how to coach defence. He is another Roberto Martinez/Marco Silva - great when it works but all comes crashing down when things go against him. He is just lucky there not to have had a proper sticky patch, as he threw in the towel elsewhere when it happened.}

17.) 08 Oct 2018 12:32:36
Ed do you know if the reason Sir Bobby Charlton not going to any games this season is to do with health or some other reason?

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware he is just not that well these days. He is a very old man, his brother is severely ill and he is not 100% either. Sadly time catches up with all of us.}

18.) 08 Oct 2018 11:35:32
Any chance that we might tempt Allegri again if Mourinho does get the sack?

{Ed001's Note - I think he would not be interested again after the way he was treated last time.}

19.) 08 Oct 2018 13:08:24
Yeah your probably right Ed001. Pie in the sky talk really just thinking out loud thanks for your reply!

{Ed001's Note - it is difficult because you don't want to push out a legend like Fergie, but sometimes you have to.}

20.) 08 Oct 2018 11:35:32
Any chance that we might tempt Allegri again if Mourinho does get the sack?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

21.) 08 Oct 2018 14:34:57
Thank you Ed001 and 002 for taking out the time to provide us with this informtion, reassuring us makes us feel a lot better lol. i. e. still looking for a director = hope. Also, Monaco have played 10, Lost 7 and Drew 3 so maybe we could possible tempty Jardim though i remember Ed002 saying it would be difficult or unattainable, can't remember correctly. Ed001, there was talk of Alderweireld being available for £25m, do you know when that will be activated? (Providing he doesn't sign a new contract)

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe there is any such stipulation in his contract. It is not something Levy would allow normally.}

22.) 08 Oct 2018 15:06:57
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - The termination clause relates to a one year extension to his existing contract not to either this season nor a new contract.}

23.) 08 Oct 2018 15:37:46
You're the man Ed002, thanks.

24.) 08 Oct 2018 17:37:58
Hi, Ed001. Just wondering if you have any idea on Mourinho's feelings about us bringing in a DOF. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I am quite sure he fully expected one when he joined.}

25.) 08 Oct 2018 17:52:16
Can't argue with any that Ed001. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure you could mate!}

26.) 08 Oct 2018 21:00:47
Hi ed001, just reading about your comments on Fergie and the vacuum left when he retired.

Do you liken it to Wengers time and how he used to micro manage everything? Except for the fact that arsenal seemed to have planned in advance for Wengers departure. They seemed to have put things in place so that when Wenger left, the correct people were already there.

Now you can see arsenal tying down contracts in advance and allowing emery just to focus on what happens on the pitch.

It looks like they learned from United's mistakes.

{Ed001's Note - very similar yes and you are spot on they did see a number of those issues arising and took action. Whether it is enough or not only time will tell, but they have certainly put themselves into a stronger position comparatively than United did. In fact they actually look to have improved without Wenger.}

27.) 08 Oct 2018 21:15:31
Cheers, Ed001. Didn't know if he would embrace it, or see it as a challenge to his position. Glad to hear you think he would have at least been expecting it, rather than having it thrust on him. Thanks again.

{Ed001's Note - the plan was always to bring one in mate. He is used to working with a similar set up, very few clubs outside of England operate any other way.}

Looks as though bakayoko has made Chelsea his first choice.

Any chance we could get that "useless" Rangnick back, he seemed to have a few decent ideas?


1.) 17 Aug 2022 11:57:02
Decent ideas and manchester united don't go together angel.

2.) 17 Aug 2022 12:23:26
Have you given up already on Ten Hag then angelred?

3.) 17 Aug 2022 12:35:20
Why do you think they sacked him. he had ideas to bring the football side of things to an elite level with time and resources.

4.) 17 Aug 2022 13:12:39
As soon as he said we needed 10 players, they were moving on without him. I imagine Ten Hag said he'd settle for a couple and make use of existed academy players.

5.) 17 Aug 2022 13:59:10
Should have kept him upstairs.
John murtough chasing his tail all summer long. How many times was he in Barcelona and turin. chasing players that don't want united.
Is there any point in having scouts at united cause no one is listening to them. Who are they scouting.
What happened with torres. Ah its OK now scouts we are buying someone else. U just wasted 2 years but it's OK you got paid for a pointless exercise. Yours Faithfull the united board. Smiley face smiley face.

6.) 17 Aug 2022 14:21:03
Not sure about that spenno i think Ten Hag genuinely thought he could get a semi tune out of these players and along with a few signings start heading toward the top 4. However i am now hoping he is realising he was wrong and is singing from a different hymn sheet to that.

7.) 17 Aug 2022 14:24:53
I don't disagree, but Ralph got some serious stick on herere last year.

8.) 17 Aug 2022 14:46:58
Rangnick was critical of the structure wasn't he and suggested Paul Mitchell come in. Having Rangnick as a consultant on the footballing side and Mitchell as DoF would of been amazing, two people who are experts at their role. What a crazy idea though, best to go with the untested option.

9.) 17 Aug 2022 14:57:10
Rangnick was here as a coach and did a bad job. There wasn't a director role for him, that's the problem but no surprise it didn't work out.

10.) 17 Aug 2022 15:15:15
This summer is a write-off. Next summer, buying the players who'll help us push for top 4, will be the one we thought we were having now. This summer is stabilising the ship, clearing out some driftwood and bringing in the players who'll get us Europa, let alone CL.

11.) 17 Aug 2022 15:27:50
Ralf as a coach was a disaster. He came in with a philosophy and abandoned it and mailed it in for the rest of the season.

If players are not doing what you ask, drop them. Noone would have blamed him if he had ended the season with loads of kids trying their best. Watching players strolling around was simply not acceptable.

12.) 17 Aug 2022 15:43:35
Spenno - Who’ve we cleared out exactly. You mean we’ve let at least £60m worth of talent walk out of the door for free and not replaced them!

What evidence is there that we’ll get things sorted by next summer. If EtH doesn’t get some help he might not even be in a job by then and have you not seen what’s happened over the past decade.

Arnold and Murtough are rubbish and the Club was right this is a new Utd but an even worse one than before.

13.) 17 Aug 2022 16:30:54
Dodgy he abanded it because these snakes didn’t want to work and run.

Just like now these snakes are still not working for the badge.

14.) 17 Aug 2022 16:46:31
Exactly, he came in with a philosophy, the wasters carried it out for half a game and then thought nah that's too much like hard work and this lad will be gone soon anyway.

Donred, you say there was'nt a directors role for Ralf but there was . It just meant getting rid of the useless waste of space currently occupying it.

15.) 17 Aug 2022 16:52:35
What 'talent' are you referring to DLIB? A handful of players everyone here whinged about for the entirety of last season?

16.) 17 Aug 2022 17:19:01
Bolger, agree 100%. So why keep selecting them? Drop them and put someone in who will at least run.

17.) 17 Aug 2022 17:24:03
I love the idea we are steadying the ship and getting Europa League football. I think the reality is a whole lot different. In fact, I’ll probably get pelters, but looking at this side right now………. it wouldn’t surprise me to be in a relegation battle. Deadly serious and sorry to be negative!

18.) 17 Aug 2022 17:29:31
Agree dodgy that’s what ten hag needs to do I think 2 games is enough to know what players are not cut out but then again we don’t have a big squad

I would prefer to watch the kids instead so let’s see on Monday what the team is

But I would be surprised if that back 4 isn’t completely different.

19.) 17 Aug 2022 17:45:33
Rangnick was ideal for Director of Football. Can't be worse than Murtough who seems woefully under qualified.

20.) 17 Aug 2022 17:55:19
Spenno - You knew exactly what I meant, the Club has let at least £60m worth of talent, assets, deadwood it doesn’t matter what you call it but players have left the Club which we could have got money for and invested back into the squad.

This Club has been appallingly managed for years I don’t think there is any evidence that next years window will be any better.

If they don’t back the manager in the next two weeks I’m not even convinced he’ll be here next summer. This squad is toxic, they don’t play for each other and the Club has done absolutely nothing to move players on apart from kissing goodbye to millions that have just walked out of the door for free.

Bailly, Tuanzebe, AWB, Jones, Chong, Amad, Pellestri, Williams are all still at the Club with only two weeks of the window remaining. That’s possibly another £60m that could be re-invested and given to EtH if the Club was properly managed.

We’ve had some bad transfer windows in the past 10 years but this must rank as one of the worst especially with a new manager at the helm.

21.) 17 Aug 2022 18:51:07
Bailly if he keeps fit (big if) is a decent centre half. Amad and Pellestri have a lot of potential and ideally if the rest of the team were playing decently they would be gradually introduced to bring them up to speed. Right now both are not ready enough and we need to rely on better more experienced players. Williams Chong and Jones should go for their sakes and the teams.

22.) 17 Aug 2022 19:35:45
Well we are skint and going to get relegated fireman, we’ve had some pessimistic posters on here over the years but you’re winning at the moment. We will not get relegated ?.

23.) 17 Aug 2022 20:32:15
GDS2: I’d argue I’m a realist unlike the pink and fluffy brigade who think everything will be ok.

The relegation comment was tongue in cheek, apologies if you couldn’t see that for what it was. However, our form at the moment IS relegation form.

My comments about us having no money, whilst partially inaccurate due to us still bringing in decent revenue, is accurate too it would seem.

But don’t worry, I’m sure come next May we’ll have turned it around and we’ll have done the double and all those nasty pessimists and naughty people demonstrating will have been proven wrong.

Get real.

24.) 17 Aug 2022 21:50:43
DLIB - and I’m sure you knew exactly what I meant. The summer and window are not over, I’m sure we will sell others by the time it closes. You are judging things as they stand now but things will look much different in a week or two. Better or worse, I have no idea.

25.) 17 Aug 2022 22:14:32
That’s why the scouts left, ETH wanted to ignore there past 2 years work, that’s his choice and part of his remit as the new deal he signed, so it’s a bit rich blaming Murtough and Arnold when there chasing ETH targets, targets that are not even available, ETH clearly thought once he was united manager and said we want you they would come running, clearly they not so impressed.

26.) 18 Aug 2022 00:20:57
Oh the old realist, got you.

27.) 18 Aug 2022 08:52:38
Whereas you GDS2……. are full of hope and optimism! Or maybe you don’t actually have an opinion but instead you choose to just troll other posters who do…. hmmm?



08 Aug 2022 11:56:05
Arnautovic and Rabiot lol.

I'm really happy that all these changes above Ten Hags head are bearing fruit.

Honestly, what a joke of a club we have become.


1.) 08 Aug 2022 12:38:17
I'm in disbelief that the club would go near those two. If its true that we are in for both I really do believe this is a watershed moment for the club.

If this is the case EtH is screwed. I feel for the bloke, he's on a hiding to nothing.

Zero ambition from a club hurtling towards mediocrity.

2.) 08 Aug 2022 12:41:28
I'm losing the will to live angel if those rumours are true.

I know some of the big names will be difficult to get but seriously, has it come to this?

We've signed a 5ft 6in LB, a 5ft 9in CB, and a 30 year old midfielder on a free. ETH may be a miracle worker, he is certainly going to need to be. Fitter players, a defined style, better tactics are all great, but we need some significant personnel changes.

The latest rumours are staggering.

3.) 08 Aug 2022 12:43:38
Tbf, Rabiot is better than McFred, though so too are hundreds of other CMs.

4.) 08 Aug 2022 12:46:27
It’s the same thing every summer.

The squad has glaring holes that go filled.
Players do alright in preseason with no pressure and nothing at stake.
People here get caught up in the hype, and proclaim that United are back, ready to start competing again, the other teams haven’t improved as much as us, and on and on.

Then the season starts, and the players who have shown themselves to be frauds and bottlers year in year out, remind us that they haven’t changed.

This summer I’ve seen thousands upon thousands of Shappy words about how ETH will get more out of these players, but the truth is that no manager help them. Man Utd destroys players. No matter who the player is, eventually the club will drag them down to its level. Average players are integral to the club, Dalot, AWB, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McFred, Rashford, Martial, Elanga.

Players like Varane and Bruno are phoning it in. DVB doesn’t have a role. Sancho a shadow of the player at Dortmund. Ronaldo, 37 and in decline and still looking for an out. Eriksen was the best player yesterday. Why? Because he hasn’t had the time to become a United player.

ETH will try his hardest, but nothing can save this team of posers and wasters besides ripping it up by the root.

5.) 08 Aug 2022 13:28:21
Tony, leopards never change their spots. That is true of Arnold and Murtaugh and their players, most of whom have more lives than a cat.

ETH is a serious coach, for sure. IMO, RR was too, don't tell me he doesn't know what it takes for a club of United stature, to be run right.

But what is he to do when he still as the bulk of those that have participated in such abject failure for years?

Get Varane back ASAP, never play McFred again, give Garnacho the chance and get at least 2 more quality signings in, we might have a chance.

6.) 08 Aug 2022 13:51:27
maybe joel should start taking the blame.

where is he hiding? his broken promises of dialog with the fans? no doubt he promised ten hag the world.

now the guys in replace of Woodward and judge will take the stick but ultimately the owner of this once great club need to be accounted.

7.) 08 Aug 2022 13:56:22
I can’t believe the levels we’ve stooped too. For the first time in 20 years I’m thinking of jacking the season ticket end of this season.

8.) 08 Aug 2022 15:07:18
just as worried by ETH - setting up with Maguire and Mc FRED when he's had 6 weeks to assess them and still he thinks they can start a PL game.

Even if he has been living in a cave for the last 2 years word would have filtered through how bad that trio are and that they get managers sacked on a regular basis.

If McFRED and Maguire are still there at Chrsitmas then ETH won't be.



04 Aug 2022 09:56:09
I'm hearing lots of talk about Gill and Ferguson being brought back into the fold of the club to offer guidance and advice to those in positions of power?

Is there any truth?

And if there is, why? I really don't get the point of going backwards to go forwards. Reminds me of Liverpool through late 80s and early 90s. Only when they made a clean break with Houllier was there any kind of progression for them.

Break from the sentiment and get better people into the right positions within the football club.


1.) 04 Aug 2022 10:36:21
Angel - The Club absolutely loves living in the past, that’s how they make all their money by trading off past success. They have no interest in building a future whilst they can still sell dreams of the Busby Babes and Class of 92.

Building a future takes competence and expertise attributes not associated with Man Utd for a very long time now.

2.) 04 Aug 2022 12:03:52
I asked the same question, the minute I got the news, what have two 80 years old got to offer in the modern game, they forever remain legends. But truth be told their Era have long gone so with ideas. Bring in young, vibrant n intelligent people to handle affairs and move this great club forward.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 12:19:02
When Fergie retired he should have got his statue, stand named after him etc. and been given no role in the club, in fact he himself having seen what happened with Matt Busby, should have made a clean break.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 13:31:57
To appease the fans and buy time would be my guess. We are all less likely to have a go at them as they bring back memories of the glory days. Unfortunately football has moved on but instead of having special-ists we go for sentiment. As others have said the game has moved on but above and around the manager we as a club are reluctant to do so.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 13:42:41
I doubt they are being given much role at all, and certainly not a decision making one. The problem we have is that so many of the contributors to this site are living in the same past they keep complaining about.

6.) 04 Aug 2022 14:09:26
The only problem with this is if SAF gets involved with what happens on the pitch, with the team, at training. Otherwise I think they are both good additions. This club has not be run by football people, LVG said it himself. You need football people involved at the club to be the middle ground between the billionaire owners with no experience and understanding of football and the management, coaching etc staff.

7.) 04 Aug 2022 15:02:18
It very much depends on the role.

They can I'm sure have valuable contributions to make in some areas.

But why not thrash the idea before we know the detail that's the 'in' thing to do.

{Ed014's Note - well nothing that Fergie has given in the way of advice, which is reportedly plenty, has made a blind bit of difference to the farcical way the club has been run, so do you really think for a minute that’s going to change.

8.) 04 Aug 2022 14:55:57
Football has not really changed that much in decades. The players are fitter and faster but fundamentally its 11 v 11 on a pretty standard sized pitch. The tactics employed today have not varied much in the past 50 years. Why do we have to be a club who don't value experience and knowledge just because the owners of those qualities are older.

I would bet that Gill and Sir Alex are still more knowledgeable about how to run a football club than 99% of most people and certainly more so than the Glazers. As long as ETH is left to coach and choose the players he wants then all is good.

9.) 04 Aug 2022 15:49:36
Jesus ken get a grip man, rumours, opinion etc, that's what we are here for.

The 'in' thing for you at the moment is to just moan about everyone else.

10.) 04 Aug 2022 15:53:36
Is it not that they, along with Brian Robson are to be a soundboard for Richard Arnold?

11.) 04 Aug 2022 15:34:10
Ed014 I don't know what he has or hasn't contributed to be honest and I don't know what this reported new role is.
Usually I find it best to find out detail before dismissing anything or endorsing it.
Maybe I'm just old school in looking at options with an open mind.
I'm looking forward to the football starting.
We are in for a really tough season but hopefully we will see a better team putting in more effort and embracing challenges instead of running from them.

{Ed014's Note - Ken even you aren’t daft enough to know that Fergie has done nothing to improve your lot and you’re just kidding yourself believing anything different.

You’ve got yourself into some kind of dream world where you’re simply refusing to look at anything outside of your own opinion mate.

12.) 04 Aug 2022 16:25:21
In fairness Ed, Fergies advice has made a difference .

It brought us Moyes, probably played a big part in bringing us Ole as manager and bringing back Ronaldo. So it would be fair to say that his advice has contributed quite a bit to the current mess.

{Ed014's Note - I rest my case bilko ??

13.) 04 Aug 2022 16:26:42
Angel no issue with your opinion. My opinion is that it's hard to form any relevant opinion without knowing any details.
But if people want to form opinions after reading an article in the star or Sun I'd suggest their opinion is not based on any solid foundation.
If its OK for you to give an opinion is it not OK to challenge that?
If you know what role people have been offered then fine but if you don't know any of the detail then how do you know its a bad idea?
Or is it any idea is a bad one?
I've no idea what you do for a living but if everybody wanted to thrash you for what you do and tell everybody how useless you are without knowing anything about your job I'd imagine you would be OK with that. No?
I'm not sure what you expected this summer. How much money did you want the club to spend on new players?
Who is going to buy all the players you want rid of?
What are your expectations?
How do you think your expectations should be funded?
What do you know about selling players and the associated costs?
What is it you want?
What's your ideas?
What's your business plan for the club? (I'm sure you can come up with one without knowing any detail of finances or contractual situations)
Apart from city and Liverpool maybe chelsea who is doing much better than us?
I would write off last season we had 1 of the worst manager in our history starting the season and an equally as bad interim finishing the season.
Eth has now to handle the Ronaldo mess.
Who's at fault for his behaviour?
Who is at fault that no club wants to buy awb or lindelof or Fred or mctom?
Spurs have signed a championship full back
A 35 yo left wing back
A midfielder from Brighton that missed a large chunk of last season for dubious reasons.
They are being held up as having a great summer. i'd rather our 3 signings over those lads.
Aside from Jesus who I think is a great signing are you sorry we didn't get any of their other arsenal signings?
Am I happy we have not signed more players? no I'm not I'd rather we had done more at this stage but we have not but your go 2 man ed002 has told you the club are trying to get deals done so put all your faith in his words or do you only quote the negative stuff he tells us and ignore the positives?
I'd love you to walk a mile in the shoes of the people trying to get things done and then thrash you for the crap job you'd do.

14.) 04 Aug 2022 17:52:08
Ed014 I'm not in any dream world.
I'm not predicting or expecting success all I'm looking for is improvement.
I think that's not too much to ask for from the low base we are coming from.
I just don't in a world where I pretend to know all the answers on things I've no detail on.
I'm forthright with my opinions and challenge others, you'd included.
How many people on here make a living from the game?
Lots of things are wrong at the club I've never once suggested otherwise.
But until I see how eth gets on I won't write him off.
Experts on here had arteta as the worst manager in the league last season. Even worse than ole. Now they are say he will get top 4 or compete for it.
People flip flop all the time.
Perisic a mid table Brighton midfielder and a championship full back who was on loan last season are going to drive a spurs title and cl campaign. Not imo they are not.
No dreamworld just not slating everything about the club because its a fresh start imo. It will take some time for me to form a thought out opinion instead of a kneejerk reaction to every piece of clickbait printed.

{Ed014's Note - Ken the site isn’t for ex managers, players, owners or directors of football.

It’s for the guys at the bottom of the food chain who have an opportunity to say their piece about whatever they want, yourself included.

There really is no need for you to act like some kind of censor and tell them they can’t have an opinion about what ever they want to give an opinion on because they weren’t or aren’t one of the aforementioned.

Please don’t try and tell me either that those two have done a single thing to improve your lot and in particular Fergie because if you can give a single example I’ll eat my shorts.

15.) 04 Aug 2022 20:00:59
Alex Ferguson and Ed Woodward are responsible for the Ronaldo mess. One is in love with the player and can’t let him go even though he stabbed him in the back, and the other is in love with the marketing machine which comes with Ronaldo and the £ and $ signs it brings to their masters pockets.

16.) 04 Aug 2022 21:06:45
Ken, who on this site has said that Perisic is going to drive Spurs to the title?
Spurs have strengthened well and they have incredible strikers, so they will improve over last year. Perisic is an excellent player and will also help their cause. I think they'll finish 3rd, which is pretty good for them.

17.) 04 Aug 2022 23:06:33
To quote from a very famous film……. ”There we go again with the negative waves. Just think it’s a mother beautiful bridge and its going to be there”.



26 Jul 2022 16:23:00
So did Ronaldo train today? ?.


1.) 26 Jul 2022 17:00:53
Ask Shappy.

2.) 26 Jul 2022 18:06:39
sim ???.

3.) 27 Jul 2022 09:18:00
The club are neither saying he did or didn't train. However he did arrive at the same time as the rest of the squad and he left at the same time as the rest of the players.

Unless the club release training ground photos where he can be seen training I guess we'll never know.

4.) 27 Jul 2022 11:00:00
He had his fitness test.



13 Jul 2022 10:57:28
Have we just spent the last month running around after a player in FDJ who does not want to come?

I'll go back to my original post from a few weeks back. If a player doesn't want the move to play here, move on and look at another target.

Same old same old with this lot lol.


1.) 13 Jul 2022 11:12:48
Apparently FDJ’s agents telling rverybody he wants to stay at Barcelona and will do so until day he signs for United (from Muppetiers)

He doesn’t want to jeopardise the £17million he’s owed.

2.) 13 Jul 2022 11:56:31
ETH claims he talked with FDJ, so ETH must have been given enough encouragement to ask utd to try to purchase, if he did not want to come why would we still be negotiating for him?

I think this has more to do with Barcelona not wanting to look like the bad guy, oh plus the back pay to him of something like €17m.

3.) 13 Jul 2022 12:04:09
I think there is a difference between not wanting to come to United and wanting to stay at Barcelona. If his position is untenable I have no doubt he’ll come to United hence why discussions are lasting this long. It’s clear Barcelona want to sell and De Jong wants what he and his team think he is owed.

I can’t get my head around Barcelona though if the reports are true. They can’t afford to keep him and pay him the supposed £17M but risk United pulling out and then being stuck with him and still owing him £17M? They apparently want a contribution from United towards the £17M but that’s surely the fee we are paying for him ?.

Seems like Barcelona want it all ends up. Utd are right to continue with their pursuit of FDJ but they should definitely be working on an alternative by now and if they end up with both players then the addition of two quality midfielders won't be the end of the world.

Ports I am not sure about them not being able to afford him as haven't they recently sold a percentage of their TV rights/ revenue to an American company. I heard this means they are in a better position and allows them to buy. They may want fdj to go to release more funds but I got the impression this is not a necessity.

He needs to stick rigidly to the not wanting to leave (I'm sure he did not want to but the way they have treated him it may have changed? ) line to make sure he gets what he is owed. Barcelona have been a disgrace in how they are treating him and I hope if we do sign him he hangs la Porta and co out to dry.

I think it's mainly down to our situation shappy.

Even wolves is a more attractive proposition than our club at the moment. Jesus, how the mighty have fallen.

Agreed Ed001, Ziyech a disaster. Ironic, because Rohan is the exact type of fan that would be calling for his head.

David Gill mentoring Arnold and Murtaugh, my god lol.

What is this thing where we always hark back to the past. Break away from it please and get competent guys in to do their job.

Gill was lucky IMO to be in there when Fergie was there, he made everyone look like a genius. Had EW been there at that time, it would've been the same.

Gill made a mess of an awful lot of transfers but he was blessed to have a man like Ferguson there.

This club needs to break from sentiment and get the right football people in. We have the coach, go get the right DOF next.

Halesini, put it down to shower he had to manage. So many out of contract, so many with huge egos, the majority who can't cut it at this level.

It's supposed to be a new dawn under ETH, yet last week's match was worse than what I had seen in RRs time.

It's not on the coach, it's on those players and the shambles upstairs.

An offer for the sake of an offer. No doubt it was nowhere near their valuation or the player just flat turned us down.
