Ed002 how are you, Ed I was just wandering have man United any interest in joao felix.

I don't think 002 Is talking to me😎
Anyway he is a good one for the future, would look good with the young talent we will have coming through in the next few years.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I missed this sorry. Manchester United remain keen on an embarrassing number of JM targets and yes Felix I’d one.}

16 Feb 2019 22:28:30
Cheers Ed,

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

16 Feb 2019 23:50:46
Why would it be embarrassing? Surely they paid JM to make such recommendations would seem to mad to disregard his input as he a top level coach and football manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is embarrassing as the club gave him little support and are now making a joke of themselves chasing after the targets he identified.}

17 Feb 2019 09:38:10
I see your point but think Jose made it so hard for people to back him it makes sense too.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Feb 2019 01:43:29
Surely just because JM happened to agree with many other pundits scouts and supporters on some of the best talent around in world football doesn’t mean that they are looking to pursue ‘his’ targets after firing him. There are more opinions than JM’s and it is possible for those opinions to be the same?
Felix is supposedly one of the best young talents in Europe so why would United not be interested, regardless of what JM thought?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It was not him agreeing with pundits, scouts and supporters - his interest in him went back a very long way. The club failed to give him support yet are now looking at his targets. Embarrassing is the word.}

18 Feb 2019 19:01:20
Mourinho could have had as much support as he wanted yet he still wouldn’t have won anything. No longer anywhere near the top of the game and and too arrogant to change his ways.

Agree2 1Disagree

18 Feb 2019 20:08:38
Have to disagree panne. He hadnt the support he needed and i g3nuinely believe he will win major honours again.

And fyi. i consider the europa a win for jose, its a vup we hadne ever wone before as well.

If you have the time Ed002, which clubs are interested in Jadon Sancho? Rumours of United 'lining up a move'.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Right now no one is interested as he is not for sale. In confirming Manchester City's option when asked this week Watzke also said there has been no approach for the player who is not for sale. When he left MC at least Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal expressed an interest but he had his heart set on Dortmund that was in 2017.}

16 Feb 2019 16:25:46
Hardly a word about it till Dortmund came to town.
Complete fabrication i'd say.
Scholes. Just watch between now and the end of the season how often united are linked with players playing in any high profile game.
The easiest way to get clicks and readers is to link united with a player.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Feb 2019 19:56:11
I assume he still has a few years worth of development at dortmund left.

They have already agreed to sell pulisic to chelsea in the summer so no pressure on dortmund to sell him.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2019 21:47:19
Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Feb 2019 08:43:36
Spending x y and z on high profile players has left us wanting and not getting value for money so to speak.

Sometimes I think to myself, we would of been better off buying players who are premiership proven and don't cost too much. The high price tag and expectations really seem to knock our players wind out,

Jose holobas, Ryan Fraser, idrissa Gueya, Raul jimenez and Ben Mee.

These players could easily do better than some players at MUFC and cost far less than most recent signings.

Believable1 12Unbelievable

17 Feb 2019 17:00:29
Disagree but fail to give your opinion.

I suppose our players are the best in their position yes? Holobas and Raul Jimenez have been playing with heart for the their team and manager ALL SEASON. Idrissa Gueya stats are all higher than NM go check it out Ryan Frasier has been a stand out midfielder for AFC Bournemouth ad Ben Mee is a left centre ex MC player head and shoulders above Jones at left centre.

So state your disagreement.

Hi Ed's

I was just wondering if there is anything new on the futures of DDG Pogba and Sanchez?

Many thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Juventus remain interested in Pogba. If Sanchez were to leave it would need MU to pay most of his wages for a while. Right now it looks like DDG will stay at leaset another year but the two options are PSG and possibly Juventus. The PSG option will continue if Buffon takes up the one year option.}

14 Feb 2019 12:47:23
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

14 Feb 2019 17:14:30
Sanchez really has to go, but not if it means us paying his wage. I’d hope a Chinese club starts to circle.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Feb 2019 13:19:54
What does it matter if we pay part of his wage?

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Feb 2019 17:06:48
It means that he isn’t off the books and the money isn’t free to use elsewhere. Why would you pay for a player to not be in your squad?

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Feb 2019 21:42:36
Simple fresh he has a contract. We are in to him for 50m plus. He won't walk away without being paid off or without getting the same or the likes of that money from his new club.
With his form so bad its high investment and we are paying miles over the top.
Its the issue we face and the reason we can't shift squad players.

10 Feb 2019 12:54:13
I’m not undermining the role of any manager by what I’m about to say, if anything it’s quite the opposite. Tactics is obviously vital in football, but ultimately what makes a good manager is the way he manages players and staff.

You could be the greatest tactician but if you have zero rapport with the players it’s just not going to work. What Ole has done is taken clearly talented players to play to the fullest potential, to make everything optimistic but most importantly he’s taken the modern football ego, the ego so on display during Jose’s rein and made them (dare I say it ) almost humble hardworking footballers who now seem happy and grafters more interested in the team than themselves.

I don’t believe anyone thinks that OGS is the greatest manager to grace this earth, he’s a down to earth guy, loves the club and has installed that man united mentality.

I’m astonished by how well he’s done. I watched the game earlier and although there is always room for improvement, I just couldn’t believe how much talent we actually have on the pitch . I don’t think I’ve appreciated the quality of players we’ve had for a very long time.

I’m not going to single out names, but every single player is a better version of themselves since Ole took the reins. I personally think that whether he stays or goes, he has become the much needed bridge between Alex Ferguson and our future. Absolutely delighted to feel like our club again.

Believable17 1Unbelievable

Saw G. Neville interview Ole before the match over the weekend and asked what the secret was over the last 6 weeks to transforming Utd having us play such good football. Ole replied that there is no secret just
1. You have to enjoy yourself
2. You have to have good players who can express themselves.
After these 2 then come the tactical bits but play forward, run forward, be clinical in front of goal, no secrets just work hard and stay together as a team.

Hi Ed, how have you been this year so far? I was wondering if there is any United interest in Ndombele?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has, through a third party, spoken to his representatives to see if there would be interest, but others are already talking with Lyon.}

09 Feb 2019 20:56:41
Thank you Ed much appreciated.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Feb 2019 23:00:37
Manchester city are interested in him as 1 of a number of players to eventually replace fernandinho, someone I know was at the Lyon game just over a week ago to watch him and someone else for Lyon. This person who knows Paul Mitchell doesn't expect Paul Mitchell to come to us as a Dof either, not gospel just someone's opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Feb 2019 17:25:02
I’ve not actually seen him play, can anyone shed any light to what type of a player he is?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of specific interest from MU but many sides have looked but the asking price has put sides off.}

09 Feb 2019 00:40:21
Apparently we had an agreement to sign him but tried to change something regarding the deal last minute and it fell through. Sound like typical journalist bull to me though.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Feb 2019 09:16:57
Its obvious we need to rest some of our players for the Fullham game.

Looking at our options we have decent options for the front three though not the best Sanchez/ martial lukaku mata might do the job resting Lingard and rash.

But our midfield is where our squad is the thinnest other than pogba, matic and herrera we only have Fred, Perreira, McTominay and Mason Greenwood (may be shouldn't have allowed Fellaini to leave without replacement) . Seems impossible to rest all three of our starting midfielders, at least one or two of the three needs to start and if they did it will be very difficult for us to play PSG in three days.

In defense for full backs we have Shaw, Dalot, young, valencia and darmian not too bad we should be able to manage, with valencia's latest video on Insta he is seems too desperate for a chance :) . And CB also we can manage as Lindelof might be able to start most of the games with jones, smalling, bailley rojo to rotate. But its scary to think of a partnership without Lindelof.

How you guys think Ole would manage not dropping points in the league also stay competing in champions league?

Under the circumstances if we are still unbeaten at the end of this month Ole should get the job full time.

Believable9 3Unbelievable

05 Feb 2019 10:24:47
We rotated a small bit against Burnley and struggled to play the way we have been. We're covering a lot more ground than those players are used to and it's already showing at the end of games, there is a considerable drop off in terms of intensity.

But this is how Ole earns his corn. As you said, it's really only the midfield that seems slightly shirt but we still should have enough to rotate and beat Fulham on Saturday.

Agree4 3Disagree

05 Feb 2019 10:32:48
Yes. The quality of our backup midfielders are a step below.
Fred is still adapting to the League. He looses possession far too often.
Mctominay looks average and is limited on the ball.
Andreas has decent passing range but doesn't offer the tenacity of Herrera or the physicality of Matic.
I suggested yesterday why not try Jones for the Matic role.

Agree5 5Disagree

05 Feb 2019 12:04:17
I’d expect as much rotation as possible at Fulham and would expect McTominay, Fred, Mata and Lukaku all to start. Valencia and Dalot getting games too, as well as Romero.

That should still be good enough to get the 3 points.

Agree1 6Disagree

05 Feb 2019 12:52:29
Fred for pogba
Dalot for young
Martial for lingard

Are the only changes I would make from the Leicester game

If and when we have a comfortable lead then sub off matic for mctominay, rashord for lukaku and herrera for pereira.

Should then have a fairly fresh pogba, rashford, matic, herrera, lingard and even though I thi k we all don't want young to play we know he will so at least a fresher young will be better than a tired young.

Agree6 3Disagree

05 Feb 2019 13:03:19
Greenwood is an out and out striker and not ready for the first team, did you mean someone else?

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Feb 2019 14:58:37
Probably Garner GDS.

I'm liking the shout of Jones in midfield actually. The further away he is from our penalty box the better. Maybe try him wide right?

Agree5 1Disagree

05 Feb 2019 16:26:46
Yep my bad I meant the kid in bench for the reading fa Cup game. Jimmy garner.

Sharath u sure Jones could link up with other midfielders . matic/ Herrera both always seem to make themselves available for the centre backs to receive the ball when the opposition press. is Jones intelligent enough to play matic role and also support in attack?

Fresh, that would be too risky, with a midfield of Pogba mctom and Fred and Valencia on the right we would not have the current balance.

Schnauzer sounds like a plan👍.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Feb 2019 16:30:15
I'm a little confused why you think our players can't play Saturday morning and then Tuesday night? They will have had 6 days rest and will get another 6 days after the PSG game, 3 games in the next 14 days is hardly going to kill the poor things.

Agree6 8Disagree

05 Feb 2019 18:28:01
Definitely not to Jones at DM. His passing is so bad and would be totally exposed there.

I think we will see more from Fred as he gets more game time. He wins the ball a lot, even though he loses it as well. As he plays, and gets used to the speed of the game, the latter will improve and the former shouldn't go anywhere.

Midfield is light, but Jones is not the answer if we want to play how we want to play.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 05:09:28
The CDM role is the area for which have struggled in the last 2 years. Matic will get burnt out towards the end if we do not rest him adequately.
I agree that Jones do not possess the game controlling ability, but he could do a job.
Remember Fergie using him to do a job on Bale in champions league few years back?

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 10:22:42
I’m fairly sure another reason why Fellaini has been moved on is down to the fact some of the younger midfielders like garner will be getting a chance at some stage. I think we should play Gomes on Saturday.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 10:24:52
Gds2 - no one is saying they can't play Saturday and then Tuesday that's why no one is suggesting to rest 11 players, people are suggesting to rest a few key players who we will need to be at 100% to beat psg. Have you seen our fixture list for then next 9 games? Think the only other games we can weaken our team are Palace and Southampton.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 10:39:56
They'll have had 6 days rest since the Leicester game. We would be out of our mind to play a rotated team against a team fighting relegation. Look what happened when we tried it against Burnley. What's the priority. Top 4 or winning the Champions League? Let's get real. The top 4 is priority. Also, they're not swept off their feet with games at the moment so the same full team could play both games as they will have another 6 days rest after the PSG game. If the last week in the Premier League is anything to go by there is no gimme games in the Premier League at this moment in time.

Agree3 1Disagree

06 Feb 2019 12:33:15
Schnauzer,

People are saying to rest pretty much the full midfield and other players as well which is madness in my opinion.

Maybe go 3-0 up and ease off / remove a few key players, but to lose the momentum or risk a defeat at this stage would be madness, it's not like we are playing 3 games a week, we have almost a full weeks break before the Fulham game and 6 days after the PSG game.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 12:54:40
Ummmm GDS, you do realise that in FIFA seasons, players stamina bar won’t be full if you play them in more than one game in a week, so that’s, eh, like science bro.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Feb 2019 13:08:04
Yes players can play Saturday and then Tuesday but if they are 5% off their best and the opposition are not it can make a difference.

Thats what managers/ coaches get paid for, making the marginal decisions.

Agree1 1Disagree

06 Feb 2019 13:54:18
Gds - totally agree wholesale changes can't happen our squad depth isn't good enough but resting 3 should be fine.

Killers scones - obviously the same 11 can play both games and be fine but it's in April and May you suffer. One of reasons united sometimes under SAF wasn't great in the 1st half of seasons is the rotation but part of the reason united was generally better in thd 2nd half of the season was our big rotated squad was fresher than most. Fatigue of the mind aswell as the body shouldn't be underplayed even if its only a few % off. A few %can be difference between a row z clearance and a phil jones shank into our own top corner.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Feb 2019 07:14:53
I think the sensible thing is to rest no more than 1 player from defence, 1 from midfield and 1 from attack each time we need to vary from the preferred 11 in this busy period of games.
That way we maintain majority of the team doing what it does game in game out. That should also make it easier for others to slot in and do their job.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Feb 2019 07:43:01
Schnauzer

I see your point however our best midfield and attack are by far best suited to our new style of play. Sanchez, Lukaku and Mata slow down and complicate our fast paced attack too much. We saw what happened when we swapped Herrera for Pereira in the Burnley game. Maybe bring in Dalot at wing back. Get a lead in the game then make early substitutions is the dream. Part of that dream also is that Jones doesn't get back in the team again because Bailey fulfills his potential like Lindelof. One can dream!

Agree3 0Disagree

07 Feb 2019 10:16:38
I know Fred has been a bit dissapointing, but it seems he is just taking longer to adapt than we might have hoped. He is still good enough to be rotated in for one of our first choice midfielders against teams like Fulham.

IMO we should be rotating him in for one of them in every game where we don't 100% need our strongest side (ie Champions league and vs other top 6 PL teams) . That way, Herrera, Pogba and Matic all get some rest, and when we do need to put out the full strength team, none of them are tired. It's not about being tired against PSG, it's about the cumulative effect of fatigue, playing every game takes a toll after a while, even when the games aren't too close together. It will also give Fred the game time to help him adjust, and hopefully bring him up to the point where we don't feel the team is weakened when he plays.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Feb 2019 17:31:32
Personally I think top 4 is the priority and we’ve got a fantastic chance to get there this weeekend with Chelsea playing City. I’d be reluctant to change the team very much as we look disjointed without certain players IMO. I’d rather start strong and hopefully have the luxury of a few goals and then start resting the likes of Pogba, Rashford etc. The game against Fulham in my eyes is as big as the one on Tuesday as we can break into that top 4, something that was unimaginable only 2 months ago.
