Daily Mail 2pm. Zidane to offer £85m plus Bale for Monsieur Pogba. Don’t shoot the messenger.


1.) 26 Oct 2019 15:24:30
nope. thank you.
not enough cash to replace him with the player we want and we will get a player we don't want and who does not want to be here. not good business selling one player who doesn't want to be here for two players we don't want.

2.) 26 Oct 2019 15:53:17
Can we just have the £85 million?

3.) 26 Oct 2019 18:43:15
Problem with Real s proposal (Assuming we want Bale) is Bale s huge salary. We re still trying to get rid of Sanchez' salary off our books, why should we hire another past his best player with an even bigger wage?

4.) 26 Oct 2019 18:50:50
85million would do just fine. Keep bale.

5.) 26 Oct 2019 20:25:14
Ceballos cash maybe?

6.) 26 Oct 2019 22:25:55
I'd be prepared to take 80m if they agree to keep Bale😂.

7.) 26 Oct 2019 23:10:49
Bale on 18 month loan - yes please
Pogba for £150m - yes please
Replace with SMS - yes please.

8.) 26 Oct 2019 23:50:42
85 mil and Isco and I'd accept.



01 Jul 2019 10:26:50
Football-Oranje Reporting us signing NEC Breda’s 16 yr old CB, Bjorn Hartley, yesterday, for a rumoured €90k training fee.




16 Jun 2018 08:32:56
Indy Boonen has turned down his contract offer and has signed a 3 year deal with KV Oostende, citing he needs more game time/ first team football.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 08:42:12
Fair play to the lad, decent young player but clearly wanted to go home, maybe will get regular game time at that level and see where that takes him but moving there can’t be great for his career.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 09:06:32
Looked promising when first signed but hasn't developed enough compared to others.



23 Aug 2017 15:16:40
Reports that DDG has moved out of his Cheshire pile and into a suite at the Radisson Blu on Peter Street. Express has some photos.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 23:32:57
Sorry, I'm a little drunk. But I read that as DDG has sorted out his piles and is now going to star on Blue Peter. is this true? Ed002?

2.) 24 Aug 2017 00:45:36
I would assume his tenancy was up. His future is not 100% certain but it may just be temporary. Probably nothing to read into too much unless an Ed can confirm otherwise.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 06:55:02
I thought he rented and the owner was trying to sell the house. I suspect he is probably moving out as the place is in the process of being sold.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 09:57:37
Not really that big a deal that he has moved out. Might be that he is buying a new house? Jose was living in a hotel all last year, as far as I am led to believe, he is still staying in a hotel.



21 Aug 2017 08:47:13
Anyone else heard that Valencia are in for Andreas Pereira on loan?


1.) 21 Aug 2017 09:34:53
Read it this morning - if he's goes to play every week you can't argue with the move but I'd like to see him given a chance this season but he's behind 5-6 others for a spot in the team.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 11:26:02
I would be disappointed to see him leave, but he is behind Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Carrick and Fellaini in midfield. An it looks like we might play most of the games this season with a No.10 which leaves only two creeper midfield positions available. Of which he is 6th choice.

I would like to keep him and play him in rotation for one of the wide roles. You could have Rashford/ Martial for the left, Mata/ Mkhitaryan for the No.10 and Pereira/ Lingard for the right.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 15:33:43
If he goes and gets game time in the CM role then we could really benefit next year bringing him back in as replacement for the then likely retiring Carrick. Valencia are a step up from last year for him too.
One concern is that I heard he is in last year of contract. Hope that information is incorrect.

4.) 21 Aug 2017 17:42:47
Valencia have just signed Kondogbia on loan.

I'm not sure how many midfielders they have but if Pereira goes it needs to be for first team football. No good him sat on somebody else's bench.

5.) 21 Aug 2017 17:55:57
I'm surprised someone like Swansea don't take a punt on him on loan. he's obviously not as good as Sigurdsson but he's in the same mould as him.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 20:42:00
Does anyone really think a move to that basketcase of a club, would really help him develop? If he does go on loan, I'd rather he went to a decent EPL club, and get more experience of playing in this league. Maybe Palace, with a footballing manager and TFM already there?

Bubbling up. Vedat Muriqi, Fenerbahce striker. Scored 12 in last 18, Burnley have been in but didn’t offer enough. We are supposedly ‘putting a late bid in’. 3 days left and how the rumours pile up.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 16:55:04
Josh King is another name doing the rounds.



27 Nov 2019 13:18:12
Bruno Fernandes rumoured to have signed a new four year deal and Sporting have upped his release clause to £85m.


{Ed001's Note - not a rumour, Sporting announced it. He was already on a 4 year deal, it is just upping his release clause.}

1.) 27 Nov 2019 14:24:15
Still worth every penny. Pretty sure Sporting have some financial issues that need sorting. I would imagine the increase in release clause is about making sure they bank enough money to clear the financial issues and have enough to finance a replacement for when Bruno leaves.

2.) 28 Nov 2019 06:07:25
Yes Shappy, We are crying out for a Bruno Fernandes or Maddison or Kai Havertz for our no 10 role.

Andreas and Lingard are hardworking but neither posses the creative spark or guile needed to be our first choice no 10.

3.) 28 Nov 2019 09:02:44
TrueRedDevil, we need someone who can spot a forward pass and put pressure on the opposition though their use of the ball.

I think we need a No.10 AND someone who can offer creation from deeper.

4.) 28 Nov 2019 10:43:09
Yes exactly.
In addition to a no 10, we need someone similar to the ilk of SMS or Saul Niguez to control the midfield.

In most of the games this season, we are getting overrun in midfield. Without McTominay, there is no energy or mobility as well.
Therefore central midfield is the area we must address asap.



24 Nov 2019 17:37:17
Posted this on live chat. Sir James Radcliffe, Britain’s richest man, was asked today why he bought into Nice rather than Utd, when he’s been a lifelong Reds fan. His answer? 'They are in quite a big pickle as a business.
'They haven't got the manager selection right, haven't bought well. They have been the dumb money, which you see with players like Fred. ”
Not a lot more to say really.


{Ed002's Note - He is a season ticket holder who has repeatedly tried to buy Chelsea.)

1.) 24 Nov 2019 18:36:58
Do you blame anyone wanting to buy a business.

The debt is still going up.

Maybe a few years of this garbage will make the owners sell up.

2.) 24 Nov 2019 19:22:02
99% of business men would love a debt to turnover ratio like United's bolger. Its a fantastic position to be in i'm not sure you understand the finances.

3.) 24 Nov 2019 19:49:26
I do ken we make loads of money but the club could be making more money

That's what I don't understand.

4.) 24 Nov 2019 21:45:24

Yes you are right but when there is debt (leverage) In a business it usually has been spent to improve the business, our debt has done absolutely nothing for the business or club.

5.) 25 Nov 2019 08:10:55
The debt is the least of the clubs issues. Frankly owners can do what they like with the money its their club and its in a financially fantastic position. Much better than when they took over.



05 Aug 2019 18:20:59
Eriksen available now for £50m. What if the game has always been we buy Eriksen and Spurs fill in with Bruno? Thoughts.?


1.) 05 Aug 2019 18:47:44
I would be delighted if we got Eriksen. I've said numerous times on here that I rate him highly and if we could get him we should try. He's the kind of midfielder we need to ease the burden on Pogba as last season if Pogba didn't create something then generally no one did.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 20:48:57
It is unlike Spurs to let a player go to the end of his contract, so it wouldn’t surprise me if Erikson wasn’t sold, whether it is to us, is another matter.



04 Aug 2019 00:09:26
According to the MEN, the captain for the 19/ 20 season is ( drumroll) . Ashley Young. To quote both Sir Matt and Sir Alex.
Goodness me.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 06:00:34
Why is it such a surprise to you that he's been made club captain? Leads by example, understands the values of the club, never causes any problems off the pitch or complains if he's not in the team and he's an experienced head who can guide the younger players. Just because he's club captain doesn't mean he will be in the starting 11 every game so I'm not sure why people are getting in a hissy fit over this decision.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 07:26:23
The MEN? That publication went down the toilet years ago. It used to be local reporting on local clubs, now its total click bait.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 08:33:01
Ashley is a truly inspirational figure, providing hope to mediocre players everywhere that no matter how poor a player you are, unsuited to a berth in a top club's first 11, there is still a chance that one day you could captain Man Utd.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 08:59:48
I think some posters are confused as to what Club captain actually means.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 10:27:41
Wiggy I think some are just clueless.

According to his local newspaper Heraldo d’Aragon, he is apparently very quick, can play left or right wing, is known as “the jewel of Zaragoza”, scored 53 goals in his last 29 games and cost us £600k.

Goodness me, I pitch up here three or four times a week and meet the same posters with the same monster negativity. The manager blah, Sanchez blah, transfers blah, and up pops Caolan with a post that actually makes SENSE regarding where we are as a team.

Go raibh maith agat mo chara.

Agree totally Caolan, but can you honestly see JM letting him turn out for the first team? If he played for Watford or Bournemouth we’d be out there waving wads of money for him next month. A travesty. On the last live chat some of the more experienced guys here were calling for the under 19s to be rolled out instead of our current crop of Bentley drivers. I’m now siding with them.

Thanks Ed. Virtually the same piece in four different newspapers was a big giveaway but just thought I’d ask.
