Ed, with Mourinho now gone are you able to disclose please the list of club targets for January?

{Ed002's Note - The club will not look to any targets that were wanted by Mr Mourinho any longer. They will look to as far as is possible shore up transfers until a new coach is appointed and may opt to take a couple of "club" targets - if space can be made in the squad. If players do not move on, there is no space. If a couple were to leave I would not be surprised to see if the club could get a good deal on a couple of players Mr Mourinho rejected just to appease the supporters and keep them onside. There have been a couple of players proposed to Mr Mourinho where he said no and the club still spoke to their clubs - I am sure it would not bother OGS to have one or two replacements on that basis, but efforts are still being made to move Pogba to another club and I suspect if their were a way out for Sanchez it would suit everyone - but it needs Felicevich to find a solution. The CB problem may well have been solved by the club who, against what Mr Mourinho wanted, gave Chris Smalling a new contract. One or two will likely still leave, Darian and Rojo might be good examples, but do they need replacing right away? There will be efforts to get Herrera to nail down his future at the club, I have no feeling what he will want to do. Martial will be another looking for an out without vast sums being given to him.}

I’m still not convinced we would be much worse off without Sanchez and Martial. We are over stocked in the left forward position and have no balance in the side whatsoever. Pogba would be missed, but only the Pogba that gets out of the right side of the bed in a morning.

That’s great, thanks Ed.

Are you able to disclose any names?

{Ed002's Note - Douglas Costa is a player the club are looking to buy on the cheap that the coach did not want.}

Hi Ed,

What does „on the cheap“ mean?
Can’t be the rumourEd 75 million pounds, right?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Think of a lot less.}

Regardless of who’s coming in, they should go all out for Koulibaly from Napoli.

Do you mean with smalling getting a new deal the club don't see us needing a new cb? Or am i reading it wrong?

I can't think of a single transfer Jose got right.

You’re reading it wrong.

Jred, early days yet but I think Dalot could be one he got right.

This club is an incompetent as they come, which genius thought giving Smalling a new contract was a good idea. You need to get rid of players like smalling not keep them you idiots, also no wonder Mourinho did not sign a rw, Douglas Costa as if we don't have enough primadonnas as it is.

Douglas Costa would be tremendous. Can’t see us getting Koulibaly.

Douglas Costa would be tremendous. Can’t see us getting Koulibaly. A January of Costa, Militao and Lorenzo Pellegrini would be superb - unless other central midfielders are more likely.

Was Douglas Costa a signing of the board or was he recommended by Mr. Mourinho, because I think we're getting (if we get) the wrong guy here. We don't another player with attitude issues and throws his toys at almost everything. Right?

{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho did not want Costa yet the club still approached Juventus.}

So Jose was right in not wanting Smalling to get a new contract, not wanting Costa and also wanting Pjanic. Hmmmm.

{Ed002's Note - But the club never let him join their gang. It was a ba d move to appoint Mr Mourinho and a bad move for him to accept. He never sawMU as a progressive club that will adapt to what he thinks they need. He didn't like being in Manchester and there are those there who saw a blue tinge surrounding him. There was a major error in taking on Ibrahimovich - it is disruptive with the kids (although one specific issue has been overcome) and he wanted to move elsewhere. Mkhitaryan was a disaster waiting to happen. Pogba's career belongs in Spain or Italy - certainly not Manchester.

Certainly a lot of issues Ed, not just with the manager. It stems from incompetent decision makers. Thanks for all your inputs.

And by blue tinge, you mean Chelsea right Ed? Or is that just me misinterpreting your clever use of words?

Seeing as you seem to be very much in the know regarding Mourinho, and considering the apparent decent relationship that he still, to this day, have with Roman, could you foresee a return to Stamford Bridge in the future? Many thanks, and Happy Holidays to you.

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest at all in answering questions about Chelsea.}
