If Jose gets these players playing well this team will prove a few wrong.

Can’t argue there, it’s almost as if we aren’t as terrible as some people like to make out. I don’t think we are quite good enough but just imagine if we went on a big run now, make a few people eat their words, 3 great away results on the spin, brilliant.

Over the last few days we've been linked with Lucas Paqueta at Flamengo, any info on this Ed? Apparently we are looking at a January deal, can't say I've ever heard him really. Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - It is an interesting question and I am surprised no one has aked before - but I guess few seem interested in transfers nowadays - just whining. Lucas Paqueta has been watched recently by Manchester United (or more precisely, on behalf of Manchester United) after advice taken from a third party. There was interest from several parties in the summer but the only direct approaches for the player I was aware of then were from Benfica (who can't afford him) and Milan (who had struggled to get the attacking midfield player they wanted and made an approach - but due to their finances and what they have to spend they would need to sell Suso to make it viable - but interest does remain still as we move in to the new season. Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid all looked at the player on more than one occasion but none has shown any interestedntaking it any further at this time - he would be a replacement for David Silva at Manchester City but they have yet to agree how and when he will exit the club - and would he get game time? There is now interest growing from elsewhere with PSG looking at him as a more attacking midfield player than Rabiot who will be leaving, but space would need to be made by a side that is overrun with wingers at this time and having to play people out of position. Barcelona have had him watched and may look again now that Coutinho has taken Portuguese citizenship - although UEFA could yet object.}

Interesting, thanks as always Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

19 Sep 2018 15:37:31
In your opinion ed, is he worth a punt? (I have no info on him beyond you tube) and if so, how much do you expect him to cost the buying club?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, the feeling of some who have looked at him is that the English game would not suit a player interested primarily in tricks. You can see him end up in the stands on a regular basis. I would rather stay away from the finances for a while on the MU pages.}

19 Sep 2018 21:03:15
Cheers ed, he does seem like a Nani type on YouTube.

is there any legs to the Icardi to United rumour, Eds?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any rumour but don’t hold your breath.}

17 Sep 2018 21:23:40
Thanks Ed, he’d be a good signing, a young captain too. Will a good Director of Football mean we’ll unearth players of a similar caliber? Or Will he just bring negotiating for already high calibre players a smoother process?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Icardi has hardly been unearthed. The unearthing of players comes from scouts normally.}

17 Sep 2018 21:34:58
your right, I suppose time will tell what a Director of Football will actually bring to the club, more drama likely, I think we’ve been a tabloids dream the past years.

18 Sep 2018 11:55:48
Do you mean Dybala op? He was linked in the rags as a swap with Pogba.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would not worry yourself about Dybala either.}

18 Sep 2018 12:38:23
Tabloids will make anything up with United's name. If we manage to win our CL match tomorrow, I can totally imagine the next day headlines to be " United harasses Young boys in a shocking scandal ".

18 Sep 2018 12:27:01
Ed,

Do we still hold an interest in Savic from Lazio. Pogba most likely to go and i think Savic will be a good replacement.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The interest will still be there but the chances of signing the player are slim and I expect the club will need to look elsewhere for a solution when Pogba goes Singh.}

18 Sep 2018 18:46:30
Ed,

Thanks for the reply.

Can i ask about the players we are going to target instead of Savic? .

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United are not making any efforts regarding a Pogba replacement at this time but if they were and assuming the manager remains unchanged then it would be likely the targets would remain the same as they have been with the club considering the likes of Toni Kroos and Lorenzo Pellegrini. Gedson Fernandes is still too young in my view but Mr Mourinho is keen. Maybe the toxics can see now the damage they done when the meeting was cancelled regarding a move for Saul Niguez - who someone associated with the club will still like to persuade to move to Manchester? Maybe Sam Allardyce will have his own views? We'll see but right now the club are not making a Pogba replacement any sort of priority and won't unless there is a push for something to happen in January.}

18 Sep 2018 19:11:33
Thanks for the reminder Ed002, player i was thinking of was Saul as i wanted to ask Ed001 if it's possible for him to write up a player profile on him. Lovely lovely player he is, also any chance we can sign Lionel Messi Ed? 😂😂 About time we get someone in to score freekicks👀.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - added him to the list. Wonderful player, I have been raving about him for years but no one else seemed to agree that he was special until now.}

18 Sep 2018 19:32:52
I really sat up and took notice when he scored the solo goal vs Bayern in 15/ 16, was exquisite, skill, guile, strength, precision, he is brilliant. If he played for Barca/ Madrid instead of Atletico maybe he would of been raved about much earlier Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yeah fair point. I remember him in youth football looking a class apart and wondering why he was only at Atleti, so you make a good point, they are overshadowed there.}

18 Sep 2018 20:03:39
Also seems to work very hard of the ball, rounded package. Fits in with Simeone perfectly, would have been nice if the meeting was held. lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2018 22:25:26
Is gedson Fernandes at sporting or am I thinking of someone with a similar name?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are obviously thinking of someone else.}

19 Sep 2018 11:33:32
Dear me we would be in trouble if Mr Allardyce is in th3 reckoning.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2018 12:19:12
Hi Ed’s and anyone else in the know.
Are we seriously in for the director football from athletico?
Sounds we are looking to appoint a defensiv minded DOF to go along with our last three defensive minded managers.
What’s going on in the club?
Thx an advance.

Believable0 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Andrea Berta was the Director of Football chosen as the desired choice of Mr Mourinho in 2016. I cannot answer the "seriously in for" aspects of your question but the club are looking for a Director of Football and Berta was one of the two that Mr Mourinho was comfortable with but he has since then been promoted from his position as Technical Director to the co-ordination role of Director of Football which might well suit Woodward but would not address the true problem the club has. If appointed to a similar role at MU it would be another major mistake.}

12 Sep 2018 12:54:24
Thank you Ed.

What is the major problem at the club?
Wrong people making footballing Decisions? If so who are making the decisions?
Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - We have been through this ad nauseum Jonny.}

12 Sep 2018 13:19:54
I’ll try my luck on the research then.
Thanks for the reply.

What's so special about Berta?

My guess is he’s played a very key role in atleticos recent success missingfergie.

Is there any developments on Pogba’s possible transfer from United?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

30 Aug 2018 01:44:37
I think its a case of when, not if unfortunately, SAF was right about his agent for sure, when he does go, he can take his roller and his chauffer and shove it.

Agree2 2Disagree

30 Aug 2018 10:30:14
If it was good enough for Fergie it’s good enough for me was my barometer on things so if he wasn’t fussed on Pogba leaving back then it says a lot to me. Before we signed him I thought he was vastly overrated and he’s done nothing to change that opinion. If Pogba was sold in this window without a replacement would we really be that much worse off, I don’t think so, Herrera offers much more in a game certainly in terms of effort. Fred also looks very energetic and I know effort isn’t everything but effort is more than Pogba offers. We’ve been waiting for how long for Pogba to step up, I’m not sure we will see it.

Agree8 2Disagree

30 Aug 2018 10:39:49
I think Fergie might have got it right first time around. he's probably sitting there now saying 'I told you so' 🙈.

Agree2 2Disagree

30 Aug 2018 10:53:46
I think Pereira, could do really well in the more advanced midfield role, good range of passing, can beat a man and has a good shot on him.

Agree5 2Disagree

30 Aug 2018 11:30:36
WRD, according to NC and Jred they watched him loads in serie a and he was brilliant.

Agree1 2Disagree

30 Aug 2018 11:31:02
i agree tot66, pereira seems to have a level head on him too, i think he could be a real asset, i also think gomes could play in that no 10 role. I’m hoping Pogba will go to be honest, i’d much prefer out present youth to develop and look at him as a lesson learned, great talent is nothing without desire and integrity.

Agree3 0Disagree

30 Aug 2018 11:32:41
Well we have one more day so we shall see. I’m sad he might leave, only because of the promise he has which he has only shown in glimpses with us. If we can recoup what we paid for him then I see no reason to block the move. Herrera is great, and Andreas could step up. Lingard has shown for us and England he can be a very effective midfielder.

Maybe the game in Spain or Italy is more suitable to his style?

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2018 11:40:23
Maybe be was brilliant for the best team in the Italian league but he’s not been for United, the top players play well in any team.

Agree4 3Disagree

30 Aug 2018 12:00:16
I'm not sure he was brilliant but he was good and was excellent in the WC .
He is far better than his current form for United would suggest.

Fergy said many times and in fact it's in his book that he wanted to keep pogba but the lad wouldn't sign a contract .
Don't forget we never sold him he left.

Agree4 1Disagree

30 Aug 2018 12:37:59
I think his World Cup form is overplayed a bit, he was good in parts especially the final for that half and was ok in the tournament but was as absent for France as he was for united at many times.
He’s had a handful of good games for United but he’s never reached the level everyone says he can, maybe it’s not in him too, maybe he’s at his level.
Yeah he left for free, Fergie never moved heaven and earth to keep him tho. Overall, if he left today I don’t think we will miss him even without a replacement.

Agree1 4Disagree

30 Aug 2018 12:47:35
Fergie wanted to keep him, people have short memories.

How about you get behind Pogba (our best player bar DDG) the same way you are urging us tk get behind Jose? He is a young guy who is trying our best and has the ability. Various coaches have had him playing like a world-beater, maybe when we have a different one he will be back to top form.

Certainly, there are no upsides to selling him as it is too late to replace him and there are few midfielders who have talent like he does at his age and the others who do would cost the heaven and earth.

Agree10 3Disagree

30 Aug 2018 13:00:08
Fergy said he was offered a sizable contract, but he was always going to leave.
I'm sure the ed said at the time he was always leaving.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - of course he was going to leave, he refused to allow Fergie's son to be his agent.}

30 Aug 2018 13:13:13
I'm sure ed2 covered why pogba was always going to leave at the time.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no idea but that is why he left and why Fergie refused to play him.}

30 Aug 2018 13:25:01
I though 02 said he wouldn't play him because he wouldn't sign a new contract .
I'm sure he called it 12 month before hand . Lot of debate on here at about given pogba playing time etc but ed no point the player and family want a move .

Not that it matters really, either way it doesn't sound like it was a purely football decision.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what Ed02 said, I am telling you why it happened. No youth player got played unless they joined the agency Fergie told them to join.}

30 Aug 2018 16:21:47
I get behind any player that pulls a shirt on for this club but if they are not good enough or don’t try for that shirt then I am not going to blindly follow them. There are too many that fall into the above categories at United and as for Pogba if he’s ‘the best at United bar ddg’ then he needs to step up and prove he is, so far he hasn’t.

Agree1 1Disagree

30 Aug 2018 16:47:11
That’s an interesting snippet of info ed01, would the asu’s agency’s have taken as much advantage as the likes of raiola?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Raiola gets better moves for his clients and looks after them like they are family.}

30 Aug 2018 17:48:44
is that a good reason to hate him or what!? thanks for all the info Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2018 21:40:34
Most definitely able to play at a higher level. I just question his attitude and application when him me aren't going for him, like now.

Massive shame because he can do anything he wants.

Agree1 0Disagree

31 Aug 2018 13:10:16
I thought Man United had supposedly broken off dealings with Fergie Jnr as an agent back in 2004. Was this not the case? Or did that only apply to first teamers?

Lots of media reports indicating that the Pogba / Jose relationship has broken down completely. Pogba seems to have set his heart on Spain, whilst I am not a huge fan of Jose I think he has treated Pogba reasonably and consistently. We should sell him quickly, if possible, for £90m plus and use the money wisely before the end of the European transfer window.

Believable6 43Unbelievable

What will you use the money for?

Perhaps Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement. Defence is ok but we should play Sanchez on the right.

Maybe he means buy in advance for January's window. His price will go up then, so best to secure the replacement now before letting Pogba go.

Alternatively he didn't realise the rule change. lol.

Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Has anyone considered that the press are creating a monster here?! Last season the story wasn’t any different and I remember Pogba interrupting Jose during a post match interview (he hadn’t even played in the match) to celebrate with his manager. Is there not a chance here that the media are purely trying to create a mess? I think so.

Agree4 0Disagree

17 Aug 2018 03:18:35
Or more of a mess.

Reading rumors now that AC Milan are close to agreeing a EUR40m deal to purchase Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. And we were thinking that Utd were quoted EUR100 (>_.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - United were.}

17 Aug 2018 11:12:59
I think the press have an agenda, I can’t believe I’m typing this but I’m starting to feel sorry for Jose. I hope he has a man to man with Pogba and tells him he can be the best in the world if he does as he is told, but that he also plays him where he can excel.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Aug 2018 11:37:15
That €40M is just loan fee per rumours. Ac will have to pay another €100M to make the deal permanent.

Even though I don't think it will happen.

Can Utd still loan players upto Sunday . James Wilson to Aberdeen on Tuesday. I'm sure we have until Sunday to sign anyone for a loan period ie SMS 😆😆.

Ed02 - do you happen to know if we are still in dialogue with anyone regarding the sales of Darmian and Rojo?

Many thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Inter remain keen on Darmian and Barnett spoke with Comolli about Rojo.}

That’s funny, because I need to speak to Rojo about his barnet.

Agree2 1Disagree

11 Aug 2018 23:38:18
So we may still see Darmian go to Italy and Rojo to Turkey before the window closes.

Thanks as always for the info ed02.

This will mean more room for movement in the transfer windows to come.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Aug 2018 20:59:59
Well with the Italian window closing this Friday the 17th we will soon know about Darmian.

If he does go i guess we will see Young at RB until either Valencia or Dalot are fit.

Makes sense. Surprised we let TFM go out but may mean Jose will give Shaw a run out for a few games.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Aug 2018 04:50:05
I agree about TFM but he needs games and once Valencia and Depot are fit we have 4 for 2 and he needs games so this is best for him and us long term.

Manchester United academy graduates played a total of 253 minutes last night, that’s 200 minutes more than Manchester City graduates played all of last season, but Mourinho doesn’t play youth apparently.

Believable14 8Unbelievable

11 Aug 2018 12:57:55
I hate city as much as any united fan but now it's just getting ridiculous. Pogba, Rashford come under our academy graduates. City has just started developing youth which they think should be capable of playing at the highest level. There are a couple who are very good and even played for them last season and didn't look out of place due to their style of play. They just bought a club in Spain where these players will play against the best and come back to be in the first team. Jose playing these guys yesterday was out of necessity.

Agree10 11Disagree

11 Aug 2018 13:14:33
Nothing stopping guardiola signing micah richards and michael johnson back and playing them. I wouldn't have a problem with it lol.

Jose can't win can he, he plays youthful academy players but it not quite the correct variation of mystical magical youth player people want. Then he sticks to type and he's use accused of wanting to fill the team with experienced players over 30 and has no long term vision.

Agree9 7Disagree

11 Aug 2018 14:48:04
OK with your powerful reply and the mention of Micah Richards you have managed to change my mind. Now I agree that Jose is a very youth oriented manager. I think we should adopt this style of play throughout our youth system so that there is a more seamless entry for our academy graduates into the first team. Can't wait to see chong playing at left back.

Agree7 5Disagree

11 Aug 2018 16:20:25
Anyone really see city playing youth much this season?

He'll probably be at palace or Newcastle on 18 months.
