Now there is talk of Pulisic on loan to united, frankly I'd take him over Ziyech.
Don't know if there is any truth to this talk, perhaps an Ed can shed some light.

mbd

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}


1.) 17 Aug 2022 13:30:51
Wouldn’t like Pulisic at all, good passer and great work rate. Touch of class as well.


2.) 17 Aug 2022 13:52:27
Made of poppadoms.


3.) 17 Aug 2022 14:02:19
Aside from Arnautovic, this is the most uninspiring rumour of the summer. So it’ll probably happen.


4.) 17 Aug 2022 14:29:49
Personally I have always liked Pulisic and wanted us to bring him in when he initially went to Chelsea. On loan this one makes sense to me and I think he fits EtH style.
Only issue is injury record but hopefully he would get a run of games and share load with youngsters.


5.) 17 Aug 2022 17:10:15
Could do a lot worse, I like him.


6.) 17 Aug 2022 18:21:30
Wooohhhhhhh GDS and Pulisic sitting in a tree.


7.) 17 Aug 2022 22:11:57
Can’t see it being true but if so just tells me Antony will wait until next summer.


 

 

16 Aug 2022 17:50:33
Eds, any idea if Manchester United are considering a move for Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest?

mbd

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have been trying to get him to move to Chelsea. He is of interest to Manchester a United amongst others.}


1.) 16 Aug 2022 20:07:15
Any chance they'd take AWB in exchange. Rumours that Barcelona are looking at AWB, but that sounds odd to me.

{Ed002's Note - I would very much doubt it.}


2.) 16 Aug 2022 21:00:29
Cheers Ed002, shame though, could have been two birds with one stone.


3.) 17 Aug 2022 10:21:01
Thanks Ed.

A summary of some updates I read which I want to share if permitted:

Garners camp aren’t sure yet whether he will stay or not this year. There’s a chance he goes and Iqbal gets a “chance” to stay around, but that’s speculation from his side.

Ten hag has rejected an enormous number of players that were suggested. Especially in the Frenkie role. He has an extremely specific idea and seems to believe Fred is closer than many of the names suggested. So it is strongly Frenkie or bust still.

Martial is extremely happy, ten hag had a very interesting chat with him recently. Before the first game. Presented some reports he himself had drawn up on Tony. Good and bad. He’s responded well.

Varane's minutes are being managed. Club don’t believe he’s capable of starting that often and needs management.

Amad is in the shop window for loans.

Hannibal has some offers they’ll look at in august.

There are concerns at some levels in the club with Shoretire and feeling he could go Gomes route of leaving the club. Some family pressure too.

Club are prepared for Ronaldo to go and actively looking at strikers and attacking options.

mbd

1.) 20 Jul 2022 10:51:41
Thanks for update mbd, some new info there, thanks. Some corroboration with what I’ve read too, especially use of Fred.

Garner been unlucky preseason but hope he plays vs Villa. Hope he stays and rotates/ plays in the deeper midfield role - obviously if he’s ready and good enough.

Can see a lot of outgoing loans too.


2.) 20 Jul 2022 10:54:28
Some interesting points there MBD. In particular the Ronaldo situation. By all accounts even though they're only friendlies in those three games Martial has been excellent, and by all accounts CR7 will expect to displace him. Honestly don't know who I'd run with in that scenario as for the first time ever I feel Martial deserves a chance. But then. we're talking about dropping our top scorer.


3.) 20 Jul 2022 11:25:43
Think we are really building something and that Ronaldo will only upset the momentum. Greenwood (I know) got off to a flyer last season and was then dropped for Ronnie and I'd expect the exact same again (at martial expense this time) if he stays. I'd actually rather he went and we signed no body, than stays and puts the obvious improvements back a year, when he will go anyway.


4.) 20 Jul 2022 12:36:28
Great and interesting post mbd.

Roonbest I now fully agree with you that it’s better if Ronaldo goes, although not necessarily that martial is the alternative or that we don’t sign a replacement striker.


5.) 20 Jul 2022 15:35:51
Yea of course I'd rather we sign a striker if he goes, but I would genuinely believe him staying would be worse than him going with no one coming in.


6.) 20 Jul 2022 16:03:49
Just a follow up to the above on Pellistri

United have apparently let Pellistri and his representatives know he isn’t expected to get a major chance this season.

Pellistri wants to be a starter for Uruguay and is climbing the ranks there. He knows he needs to play.

His representatives and him are looking for the best option for the upcoming season (and potentially long term) .


7.) 20 Jul 2022 18:59:54
A loan to Fulham or Southampton would be good for Pellistri IMO. Premier League football so on the big stages of club football and help with his chances in the national team. United get a chance to see what he is capable of in the Premier League before making a decision on him long term.


8.) 20 Jul 2022 20:36:55
Fair play mate - you could be right.


9.) 20 Jul 2022 21:38:25
If CR7 goes we lose an almost guaranteed 20 goals. Can't see Martial getting that amount. More importantly it would mean we would be only one injury away from a seriously depleted strike force. So unless ETH is going to introduce one of the U23s a striker is desperately needed.


10.) 20 Jul 2022 22:13:41
I’d send Pellistri to Ajax on loan to take the place of Antony.


 

 

21 Jun 2022 21:04:10
Summary of the latest rumour vid from the mupsters if permitted: (dont shoot the messenger :P)


De Jong - No new updates but United need to pay around 80m Euros.

Eriksen - Offer made, no rejection, waiting for answer.

Antony - Wanted by Ten Hag, 40m offer isn't enough for him.

Martinez - Also wanted by Ten Hag, 40m would be enough.

MAY have to choose between one of the last 2. Price for Antony could be prohibitive at the 55m price quoted.
Oh and Jones/ Bailly/ Axel are all absolutely for sale. They don't want them. They're not "waiting to see" on any of those 3 names.

mbd

1.) 21 Jun 2022 21:15:47
Well if those are the targets, nice to see ten hag is thinking outside of the box with signings and not just opting for players he's coached before.


2.) 21 Jun 2022 21:34:31
I’m raging he’s not pushed the boat out for mbappe DSG.


3.) 21 Jun 2022 21:37:28
Barca have untill the 30th to make a deal or they can't use the funds to count towards next seasons wage structure he said

So they need to get a deal done soon.


4.) 22 Jun 2022 07:25:22
DSG, is it suprising?

Many managers prefer to sign a "known" quantity over an unknown quantity.

If you're heads on the block are you going to go for those you know and trust or take a gamble on someone else for millions of pounds.

He doesn't know the squad, he hasn't trained them, he is in terms of personality rebuilding the squad blind.

He needs as many players with great personalities and work ethic as possible.

He hasn't been had the the time to work with the squad, understand the players capabilities to play his style, their personality. He also hasn't by had months to plan for new signings to fit the current squad, to scout specific players, draw up a shortlist, look into them beyond what they do on the pitch etc.

We have seen the departure of the two most senior scouts at the club.

Also I'm glad that this time the club seem to be listening more to the manager and letting them take more of a lead in the signings.

Nearly every manager we have hired post Sir Alex has signed at least a couple of players that the club had "lined up" before they took over. With nearly all of them struggling and not suit the new manager.

Best to go with players the manager knows and who he knows suits his style of play.


5.) 22 Jun 2022 08:55:27
i don't remember Klopp getting the band back together at Liverpool from his Dortmund time or Pep trying to get his old Barcelona players over to City.

Also I thought we were meant to be transitioning away from a manager led approach on transfers which has led to a squad comprised of 5 different managers players to a more "committee' led approach but who knows.


6.) 22 Jun 2022 09:15:48
DSG you don't remember Pep taking ALcantara to Bayern? Or Bravo to City?


7.) 22 Jun 2022 09:47:09
I reckon Guardiola would have loved to have taken Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol if he had a realistic opportunity to get them. Same with Bayern, the players only leave there when Bayern no longer want them.

Klopp was linked with Dortmund players but admitted at the time Liverpool couldn't get in to big money signings at the time.


8.) 22 Jun 2022 09:56:47
DSG. Klopp joined Liverpool after the transfer window had closed. He managed them for close to a full season before he entered a summer transfer window. He was also unemployed for several months before joining Liverpool having left Dortmund.

He had time to assess that squad.

Pep, went to Bayern before joing City and even had a year off on sabbatical between leaving Bayern and joining City. Rumours suggest that he was lined up a long time before he took the City job and that the club were using him as a consultant of sorts with transfers before he took the job.

Both cases are very different to the one EtH finds himself in. Where he has jumped from one job straight into another and now has to decide transfer targets having never worked with the squad he is now manager of.

There will be players in our squad that us fans have written off who actually do well under EtH and will suprise us. While there could also be players we think are good enough who either don't gel with EtH or suit his style of play.

Bruno for example is a player I wonder whether he suits EtH's style. He could adapt, but he won't fit well with EtH if he tries to play as he has over the past 2 years. Maybe that is why EtH supposedly wants Eriksen.


9.) 22 Jun 2022 10:06:05
Those are fair points about it being easier to get players out of Ajax, than dortmund or Barcelona.

I am not anti ETH signing ex players and the De Jong pursuit makes perfect sense to me given our huge deficiencies in central midfield and how good a player de jong is.

The links to Timber, Martinez and Antony make less sense to me given the fact Ajax are going to be reluctant sellers given they've already sold gravenberch and the big step up it is coming from the dutch league to the Prem.

Take Antony for example, aren't there any other left footed brazilian right wingers who are potentially available for transfer that have premier league experience. I don't know like that guy at Leeds whos had two good seasons in the premier league already.


10.) 22 Jun 2022 14:10:02
DSG, is that the same guy at Leeds who will cost more than 55-60m and is currently being chased/ considered by Barcelona, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal.

Three of which can offer UCL. While I can't see Leeds being over the moon to sell to us.

Antony on the other hand has played for EtH, and apparently wants to join. He's also 3 years younger.

I'm sure there are many very good or even great players out there available this summer for the right price.

However, as a club who have finished 6th we have to accept that we aren't the most attractive club to join currently. We might have to lean on those who have a strong connection with the manager to get players into the club.


11.) 22 Jun 2022 15:46:05
Assumably ten hag will be implementing the same style at Utd that he's instilled at Ajax so makes sense to go for Antony or Rafinha in terms of that, plus age and mooted value (although £40m for Antony if true does seem a little light) . Throw de Jong, maybe either of the CBs and Donny into the mix and he has 4 players well up to speed on exactly what is expected of them.


 

 

20 Jun 2022 16:43:02
Some of our 'rumours' I could gather is that United are reviewing documents related to Eriksen. His decision expected next week.

Another deal strongly in progress this week name kept hush for now. (separate to de Jong and Eriksen) .

De Jong offer is expected to be raised, believe Barcelona already are aware of the new offer and it’s in discussion between the 2 clubs.

United could look to an offer for Martinez. Pau Torres remains a top choice for the club.

The club is fairly confident in their plan. They have been patient and working at a comprehensive approach to address multiple areas at the cost of not committing too huge an amount to other signings like Nunez once the price drove up, or giving in on De Jong immediately.

Groundwork is laid for multiple deals now and the club feel they will fall into place properly. In terms of timing there was nothing imminent as of Sunday (usually means not within 24-48 hours), but it is not expected to be too much longer.

mbd

1.) 20 Jun 2022 17:27:05
Is Eriksen going to want to leave London tho?


2.) 20 Jun 2022 17:34:35
Is this just your synopsis of the 'rumours' mbd?


3.) 20 Jun 2022 17:49:11
There are whispers that Spurs have distanced themselves from Eriksen. If they're out of the running I would hope we're the favourite. I think Eriksen would be a superb signing, here's hoping there's a modicum of truth in this.


4.) 20 Jun 2022 17:56:09
This its what that muppitiers has said, I've just watched his latest video.


5.) 20 Jun 2022 18:16:39
I would love Erikson at Utd.
What would be holding up a move if true? As a free agent surely the de Jong outcome wouldn’t affect it?


6.) 20 Jun 2022 18:36:38
Highly recommend Muppetiers on YouTube

Sounds a bit like Shaggy from Scooby Doo tho.


7.) 20 Jun 2022 18:42:09
Hi Angelred, this is just a summary of what the muppetiers came out with.


8.) 20 Jun 2022 18:55:40
Rumours that Eriksen has agreed to our financial offer.

Decision incoming.

FDJ should go on.


9.) 21 Jun 2022 08:50:56
Ah right mbd. Cool, was just wondering if you had any contacts yourself.


10.) 21 Jun 2022 11:18:06
Proper muppets those guys. Nearly everyone is just repeating the same news that’s been going on for weeks.
If you bring up a name that has been in the news for weeks, you’re not doing anything other than repeating what’s already there and trying to sound like ‘you’re in the know’.
Absolute tosh.


11.) 21 Jun 2022 12:33:21
To be fair, theirs is usually the 1st place I hear most names before the papers and social media start the repetition.

Ed001 is a Liverpool supporter while Ed002 is a Chelsea guy. Why would they want to sack Ole? They are enjoying this???.

UA lol . ok Ed004 then.


 

 

27 Oct 2021 13:01:13
It seems we all want a change and something has to give. After a lot of venting and ranting on my part, I decided to look at it from the perspective where if I had the power at utd to make decisions what will I do.
What i am 110% sure is I will replace Ole.
Now who can come in for Ole seems 2 candidates at the moment if we are to believe all the news, Conte and Zizu. Ziziu may not want the Job nor will I want him at utd, personally I think he wants to be next French national team coach. Conte who seems willing I fear will be a mourinho like move. If we learnt anything from lvg go it is that long term plans trump knee jerk decisions.
Initially I was thinking let Ole and his assistants go, and someone like steve bruce comes in to see us to the end when we can possibly approach coaches like Ten Hag, Marcelo Gallardo or even Graham Potter or Urs Fischer.
But then why trade one bad apple for another when you can stick with what you have until a good option avails itself.
So i settled on I will probably look at the players and see if they still back their coach and decide whether he stays, or he leaves and a caretaker comes in to see the season to the end. No matter how good the caretaker is, i WILL NOT make him permanent.

mbd

1.) 27 Oct 2021 13:19:24
well ain't we all glad your not in charge. steve bruce

if they are going to be looking long term just leave ole in the job till the summer, look for candidates now and then we have enough time to get the right manager in.


2.) 27 Oct 2021 15:00:41
Trouble is that given the inertia of the board will the club be such a wreck by the time they find someone that they will not want to take the job?
Basic rule of life is Grow, develop and live.
OR
Try to tread water, regress and die.
The problem is that with Ole we are sadly already well into the regression stage.


3.) 27 Oct 2021 16:04:26
Bolger, like i said if you read farther, it was an initial thought and gave reason why i won't do that.


4.) 27 Oct 2021 16:48:04
Urs fischer really?! Wow.


5.) 27 Oct 2021 17:28:54
LOL RedW, that's the even column.


 

 

21 Oct 2021 12:51:51
Let's not get too carried away. The players' desire and talent won us the game. We played zero tactics and strategy. Unless an argument is to be made that being unpredicatable is Ole's tactic, then the sooner we get a proper tactician who will use this wealth of talent we have, the sooner we will win relevant trophies and inch towards becoming a football powerhouse once more.

mbd

1.) 21 Oct 2021 13:16:12
The two halves encapsulated the issues quite well

The first half was the Ole tactical set up they have worked on. The second half was the underdog team mentality situation relying on better players pulling something out of the hat, driven by fear of going out and emotion.

It will work some days but won’t be anywhere near consistent.


2.) 21 Oct 2021 14:44:33
Defensively we were very poor in the first half. The first goal came from Lindelof being dragged out of position wide left to cover for Maguire, McTominay dropped in to cover for him as he should but he allowed the player to get ball side of him. The second goal was simply Shaw losing his man from a corner. Interestingly I wonder why Shaw (a full back) was picking up Demiral (a CB) in the first place.

That said we did create chances in that first half, at the break it could have been 2-1, 2-2, 3-2 or 3-3 based on the chances for both sides. It was a very open game played by two sides who attack well but struggle to defend.

The real difference between the first half and the second half is we took our chances in the second half and didn't make any silly defensive errors like we did in the first half.

For me the real concern is that we don't seem t play without fear until we are chasing a game. Which means we need to concede before we get going, while you play like that you are at the mercy of luck. In previous games we ran out of luck, while last night we seemed to find it again.

Simply put we have too good a squad to rely on luck.

{Ed001's Note - McTominay was marking Demiral and got a little shove in the back just before the ball came in, which left him in front of Shaw.}


3.) 21 Oct 2021 15:26:07
Ed001, You might want to watch it again. Shaw is picking up Demiral and is tussling with him before the ball is played in. Demrial then pushes Shaw and runs around Maguire toward McTominay, nudges McTominay in the back Shaw then catches up but gets under the ball with Demiral nodding home. Maguire sees what is happening too late and tries to get to Demiral but doesn't make it.

On YouTube the BT sport highlights pick everything up between 2.38 and 3.15 if you want to see.

It was Shaw who for some reason was asked to do a man marking job. It's down to our hybrid zonal/ man marking system where we have some players marking zones (such as McTominay taking the near post zone) and others marking players who are considered a threat. I suppose Shaw at 6ft and fairly mobile makes more sense to be man marking rather than someone like Maguire who's heavy footedness could leave him flat footed.

either way Demiral's movement was excellent, although Shaw should have done better. It was a well worked corner routine, but we need to do better on those.

{Ed001's Note - ok, but the guys outside the 6 yard box are meant to block, not mark in those systems usually. The ones inside the 6 yard box are meant to pick up the flight of the ball and deal with anyone who gets near it.}


4.) 21 Oct 2021 15:58:31
So now our 80M centre half can't man mark at set pieces.


5.) 21 Oct 2021 16:22:24
Ed001, without a doubt our defensive system is a shambles. I'm not sure anyone really knows what they should be doing.

1 clean sheet in 22 matches highlights the obvious issue.

Yet still we are making obviously and silly errors. We supposedly brought in Eric Ramsey to deal with the set-piece goals we give away so often. So far it doesn't seem to be working.

The annoying thing is sometimes due to the way you set up to get the best out of other players on the pitch there are some defensive weaknesses that are hard to eradicate from your game. A propensity to get caught with balls over the top for example could come from having to play a high line to get the best out of your midfield/ forwards. If you don't have quick defenders or a keeper comfortable to come out a sweep then you either have to change your system entirely or accept you will concede a certain amount of goals from the same situation all season.

Yet the most frustrating thing for us is that we concede so many goals from set-pieces. Something that isn't impacted much if at all by which system you want to play.

Be organised and do your job and it should be easy enough to defend. We have defenders more than good enough to win most defensive duels from set-piece situations. The fact we concede so many just means we are poorly organised and not working hard enough on the training ground.

Such a simple fix which would make such a big difference, probably stop us conceding 10-15 goals a season, would get us through a few more rounds of cup competitions and an extra 10-12 points a season.

No more players needed just competent coaching. So frustrating.

{Ed001's Note - you don't need quick defenders nor a keeper comfortable sweeping. What you need is defenders who can read the game, and they are rare as hen's teeth these days.}


6.) 21 Oct 2021 16:42:06
bilko,

Not sure that is what has been said above.


7.) 21 Oct 2021 16:48:02
ED001, are you still a fan of McTominay?

I feel with the right manager he could be a terrific player if utilised properly. He is far more effective as box to box midfielder.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he is a very good player being badly used. You could say pretty much the same about most of the United team. They are much better than they are being made to look under Ole.}


8.) 21 Oct 2021 17:06:40
Ed001, true, but like you said there might only be a handful of such defenders in top flight football.

I blame the coaching, they train to react to and not read the game. Also the tendency to try and make defenders have the technical ability of a midfielder means than much more time is spent training them to receive and pass the ball.

{Ed001's Note - and almost all of them are midfielders in their youth that get put at the back, that doesn't help either.}


9.) 21 Oct 2021 17:39:12
If we continue with solskjaer tactics or lack of them, then we won't keep clean sheets. We're simply not condensing the pitch when we don't have the ball. Only a change of formation and hard work is going to solve the problem.


10.) 21 Oct 2021 18:56:35
AAA, change of formation has nothing to do with it. A formation is only a starting point, the formation should change multiple times during the game depending on phase of play.

It's the tactics and the speed/ ease in which we transition that is the problem. We dally on the ball which slows attacking transitions while we are slow to react to change into defensive shapes when we lose the ball.


11.) 21 Oct 2021 20:21:00
ED001,

I agree with your comment about the players.

Even with the addition of Varane Utd look very poor defensively. Maguire is abysmal, a lack of match fitness is one thing, but his defending for the second goal was horrendous. I do wonder if a new manager comes in, whether Maguire improves or gets sold.


12.) 21 Oct 2021 21:14:23
Hatter, I think McTominay could be a very important player for us if he was to play a proper box to box role.

He has stamina for days, is strong in the tackle and has a really good shot on him.

Play him alongside a deeplying playmaker type player and he would add bite and work rate to the midfield and would probably come up with 8-12 goals a season from midfield if allowed to break forward more often.

Last season everyone raved about Tomas Soucek because he grabbed a few goals, but McTominay is every bit as good if not better.

Asking him to play a deep lying player goes against his best attributes and he is only being asked because there is no one else capable in the squad.


13.) 21 Oct 2021 23:12:03
The main weakness being he can’t pass Shappy.


14.) 21 Oct 2021 21:25:59
Shappy,

McTominay when allowed to play as a Box 2 box midfielder has been phenomenal. He has really controlled games when he plays as b2b. however he hasn't really played as one for nearly 2 years. Hopefully a new manager comes him and okays him in the right position.


15.) 22 Oct 2021 05:13:37
I had big hopes on McT, but he has regressed.
His passing, positional awareness have not improved. Again boils down to poor coaching.


16.) 22 Oct 2021 08:21:39
Eric, his passing is good, it's his long passing which is limited. Again this is something that is a bigger problem when you play him deeper and he is expected to make 30-50 yard passes.


17.) 22 Oct 2021 09:59:58
Shappy, not sure about the abilities of any of our players on the pitch.

Probably most of them are just carrying out Ole's instructions so that they can be part of the first team. And who knows, they might just be doing the same in the training sessions which gets transferred on the pitch.

Just a follow up to the above on Pellistri

United have apparently let Pellistri and his representatives know he isn’t expected to get a major chance this season.

Pellistri wants to be a starter for Uruguay and is climbing the ranks there. He knows he needs to play.

His representatives and him are looking for the best option for the upcoming season (and potentially long term) .

I feel Youri will be a Pogba downgrade, I wouldn't want him.
If I remember correctly, Youri is a player Ed001 spoke about being lazy and not one we should look at.

They gave 80mil, we signed Maguire,
They gave75mil we signed Sancho
They gave 50mil, we signed Bissaka,
They Gave 60mil we signed Varane
they gave 45mil we got fred, another 45mil for bailly.

And we don't understand why they are now Circumspect about dishing out more cash.

Am I looking at it the wrong way, maybe I'm missing something.

Or is this reality?

When we overpay for players, there is whining and moaning here, when we stick to our guns, there is whining and moaning here. We are yet to play our 1st match yet prophets of doom are already at it.
Give it a break guys, let's see how it really goes before infecting us with your pessimism.

Once upon a time Halaand and Nunez had never been heard of but .
Sign him, if he flops he flops, I'd rather we sign and he flops than someone else signs and he becomes world class.
