Hi guys,
I don't know about you all but with all the crazy talk surrounding Man Utd, I could really use an Ed002 sharkopod to calm the good old nerves. Ed whenever you are free, we will be waiting.
Thanks a million.


{Ed002's Note - I have time issues at present but I can answer specific questions.}

1.) 07 Jul 2019 11:53:20
Hi Ed002
Who behind the scenes is making the decisions toward re transfer targets
Does Ferguson or charlton have a say on anything?
Also do we view Fred as a player we are likely to persist with?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant who makes decisions. There are no efforts being made to sell Fred although there has been an approach to take him on loan.}

2.) 07 Jul 2019 12:11:20
Hi Ed I see there's no Dean Henderson in the tour squad, is the plan to loan or sell him?

{Ed002's Note - Dean Henderson was at the Under 21 tournament and is not due back yet. I suspect a loan to Sheffield United will be the best option if he signs a new contract first.}

3.) 07 Jul 2019 12:30:56
Cheers Ed completely forgot about that tournament!

4.) 07 Jul 2019 12:40:22
Ed if you don’t mind.
Have any clubs shown interest in Bailly, Rojo, Smalling and Jones?

I know you’ve said Rojo will be difficult to move, and I wondered if Smalling and Jones signing new contracts is to protect any value or because they are genuinely considered good enough for the medium term.

{Ed002's Note - To the best of my knowledge:
Eric Bailly (CB) Not for sale - Lyon enquired in February or March.
Marcos Rojo (LB/CB) not wanted but limited which countries he can move to - no interest being shown in himChris Smalling (CB) not for sale at this time
Phil Jones (CB) available but no interest in him.}

5.) 07 Jul 2019 12:57:52
That’s positive that the right players look to be available at least. Jones signing a new deal I think will have made others think twice about going for him unfortunately.

6.) 07 Jul 2019 13:20:41
Thank you for the prompt response Ed, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

7.) 07 Jul 2019 18:12:13
I know this maybe a silly question but why is Rojo limited to where he can move to?

{Ed002's Note - It is not really a matter of discussion but some places - including the likes of Rojo and Keita - are restricted where they ca move to.}

James Weir off to Hull on a 3 year deal. I thought he was one for the future.


1.) 31 Aug 2016 21:46:34
Good luck to him.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 21:48:15
Same but opportunities limited this season. Would've thought a loan would be better.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 21:52:29
Any buyback clause or something?

4.) 31 Aug 2016 22:26:48
Weir was just a reserves player. He was never seen as 'one for the future' from the club itself. He did a wonderful job coming up from the U18s to end up captaining the reserves but for him to transition to 1st team football, he will have to move becoz he won't get that at United. He isn't good enough, not at that standard. He was a lot better than Jack Barmby tho, they both came p at the same time but Jack was let go of after his first season and Weir went on to become Reserves captain. Barmby was seen as the golden boy, something special, when he fist came over here because of his footballing dad but tbh he completely flopped, his attitude was terrible, never passed and couldn't keep hold of the ball. In the same year Weir was the one dominating and being a team player and them traits helped him outshine everyone. In the end Weir moved up and Jack was moved on. Weir was just an outstanding player with a brilliant work ethic that kept him with us for so long. But there are a lot of young talents at the club with a lot more potential and ability than weir.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 22:31:01
He is. Well just buy him back for 100m in three years.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 23:03:35
Joel Pereira joins Belenenses on season-long loan.

7.) 01 Sep 2016 10:15:56
14 sold or released and 7 loaned.



19 Nov 2015 08:36:16
Hey, does anyone have any info about the progress of the young rb Varela?

Eds what do you think of Laurent Blanc as a coach? Why hasn't he been able to land a job?


{Ed002's Note - Laurent will decide on taking a job when a suitable offer comes along. As has been explained, he would have been a good choice for Manchester United.}

1.) 02 Dec 2019 19:47:44
Is there any possibility that United might approach him?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has a coach already.}

2.) 02 Dec 2019 20:17:56
Should a vacancy arise?

{Ed002's Note - I suspect that it may be something lost to the wind and MU will look to others instead - they likely missed the boat on LB.}

3.) 03 Dec 2019 10:02:46
I wanted Blanc years ago. He knows the club and the league and can keep egos in check. Should have got him in after Moyes imo.

4.) 03 Dec 2019 11:15:36
Cheers Ed002. That's a shame, I think he is a great fit.



02 Dec 2019 14:01:31
I know Ed002 has mentioned this in the past. Would anyone take Laurent Blanc over Poch?


1.) 02 Dec 2019 14:30:09
I'd take anyone with an ounce of tactical nouse.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 15:20:33
I think right now is about getting to the end of the season for the board.

3.) 02 Dec 2019 15:28:11
i would be surprised if no one tries to get brendan rodgers apparently he mentioned yesterday he has an exit clause in his leicester contract.

4.) 02 Dec 2019 15:30:46
Personally I’d go for fish face Rodgers over Poch. I know most wouldn’t because of his time with the mickeys.

5.) 02 Dec 2019 18:29:11
The club are sticking with ole lads unless things get drastically worse they will stand by him until the summer. Unfortunately i can see things getting worse.

6.) 02 Dec 2019 23:34:04
For me, Rodgers will be the best fit. He knows the league and the status of our club, and he's an excellent coach.



16 Nov 2019 11:31:25
Hi Eds I'm from Cameroon. I wish to know what your opinions are on Sanuel Eto'o as a player. Where does he rank?


1.) 16 Nov 2019 11:38:25
Poor mans sylvan ebanks-blake.

2.) 16 Nov 2019 11:39:21
A great ability to score goals. A little arrogant. When he left Chelsea he left behind dozens of mobile phones.}

3.) 16 Nov 2019 19:22:16
Ed002 😂😂😂😂.



12 Nov 2019 16:47:23
Hello Ed001 and other Eds. What do you think of Fosu Mensah? Do you think he has a future at United? I quite like the kid but he has been unlucky with injuries.


{Ed001's Note - if he can stay fit he will. He will end up moving on if not. Those injuries have cost him a chance to establish himself this season.}

1.) 12 Nov 2019 18:33:49
Ed001, what do you think is TFM's best position?

I have always felt he would be better in shielding role in midfield.

{Ed001's Note - and me, I don't think he has the crossing ability for full-back and has not quite got the defensive nous for a centre-back.}

2.) 12 Nov 2019 20:27:46
If Lingard can be in the team then Fosu Mensah definitely has a future with United. I don't know why United and other teams he's been on loan with play him at right back. He biggest problem with him at RB is that he lacks positional sense. Needs to look across the line and be more aware about the defensive line. As a defensive mid he won't be one of the greats but can definitely be a very good squad player which we need as our squad is very thin.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 21:14:27
Thanks for the reply Ed. I really want him to succeed. i think he is a DM as well. Maybe useful for us this season as I see us picking up a lot of injuries before the end of the season.

{Ed001's Note - I hope he gets a run of games, I like him as a player, though he is very raw.}

4.) 13 Nov 2019 06:13:47
He was being used mostly as a full back because of his pace and strength.
But as Ed said, injuries have hampered his progress.

5.) 13 Nov 2019 06:33:41
I said on here about 3 years ago that TFM’s best position was DM and always felt he had the talent for it.

6.) 13 Nov 2019 18:27:40
Depending on how his recovery goes could we see him given until the summer to have a few games at DM to see how he does. If Matic is pushing for a January exit then he would have a clear run at the position.



08 Jun 2019 10:08:06
Hi good people,
What are your thoughts on Frank Kessie?


1.) 08 Jun 2019 13:15:15
Not good enough.

We are being linked to AWB of Crystal Palace. Won't that hamper DD development?

Yes Ed001. That's the reason why. The English side has been oppressed since independence and the French side has been trying to assimilate them. English are against this ans taking a stand. In response a president who has been in power for the last 38 years decides to kill and abduct people, telling the international media it is unknown gunmen or rebels so western powers side with him. Sick stuff. I have faith the coach will be released in due time.


{Ed001's Note - ouch. Well I hope you are right mate and that things get better there quickly. Take care of yourself mate.}

Hi Ed001 I am from Cameroon and what is happening there is sickening. I pray the coach is safe. Military abducting English speaking people and claiming to be "unknown gunmen"


{Ed001's Note - I hope so too mate. Is that why his abductors were listed as "unknown gunmen"? That explains a thing or two, as all the reports were very vague on that one point.}

Matt Busby is dead, football evolves, Fellaini serves a purpose, the MANAGER trusts him. Deal with it and move on.
I pray he stays!
