Hi Ed's. First time poster but long time reader. Great site by the way. I saw Ivan Perisic handed in a transfer request today. He's been heavily linked with Arsenal recently and if memory serves correctly Ed02 did say our interest didn't end when Mourhino left. So I'm wondering would Mr Woodword be tempted in making a move in the next few days. Would be a bad idea in my opinion as we've more than enough forwards at the moment. Thanks as always!

{Ed002's Note - Inter will make a decision tomorrow and that is likely to be driven by the replacement they have settled on arriving. Manchester United remain keen on the player but not the price. Arsenal are keen but only want a loan.}

Interesting, hope we don’t do anything silly. He isn’t the right profile for the club right now and his numbers are poor.

Would rather look to Lozano.

28 Jan 2019 08:55:20
Welcome Hopper, enjoy 😊.

28 Jan 2019 09:25:13
Maybe Perisic is being considered for the wing back position.
Otherwise taking into account his age, he doesn't seem to be right purchase.

28 Jan 2019 09:58:15
I really Hope we don’t sign him! Not needed at the club. Defence is where we neee to invest.

28 Jan 2019 15:28:38
There is a thing with Lozano, railing against authority during his time with Pachuca, being involved in on-field incidents with little provocation, and picking up eight red cards despite at a young age: five with Pachuca, one with the Mexico U-23 team, and two red cards in his first season at PSV. Although a good prospect, i would rather move away from such hot heads, something that the team doesn't want right now.

26 Jan 2019 08:49:10
Do the Ed's or any fellow posters know anything about the young 17 year old African midfielder Hanson MBopp we have been linked to this morning?

Agree9 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 09:15:01
One hit wonder.

26 Jan 2019 09:21:46
DDG 1, bravo, take the rest of the month off. You win the site. :)

26 Jan 2019 09:30:05
Shappy you ok lectured us a couple of weeks ago telling and urging us not to read these types of rumours. are you bi-polar 😂😂😂😂.

26 Jan 2019 10:17:53
DDG1, comment of the month, bravo 👏🏻.

26 Jan 2019 10:30:30
Saturday morning fishing Shappy?
DDG1 one for the archives that answer is!

26 Jan 2019 10:46:46
Duwudada doowapp.

26 Jan 2019 11:53:42
DDG1, I'll have to get up a little earlier if I want to catch you. lol. I was hoping everyone had been out celebrating last night, hoped I'd catch a few. lol.

26 Jan 2019 12:33:45
We're looking at quote a lot of young players. Hearing a lot of things about young Swiss midfielder Toby Le Rone.

26 Jan 2019 13:04:21
Mort, I've heard he's quite tasty. Lol.

26 Jan 2019 13:52:10
Good with triangles too.

26 Jan 2019 13:53:55
A bit up and down.

26 Jan 2019 14:17:42
Probably still be better than floppy keita.

26 Jan 2019 15:15:55
I hear he’s a nougat’y young Midfielder.
Gets stuck in.

26 Jan 2019 15:54:06
A good run and this site is a joy to visit. Top work boys.

26 Jan 2019 18:49:05
I wonder what's happened to our cheerful friend Beast.

26 Jan 2019 23:02:49
I do miss beast he had some good input most of the time.

26 Jan 2019 00:24:12
Give Ole the manager job.

Agree12 Disagree3

25 Jan 2019 13:48:12
Any interest from Man Utd to buy Nicolo Barella? read something on the papers, EDs?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. Liverpool looked at him a while back.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 23:53:38
Timo Werner has stated if he could, he would like to play for Man Utd. Do you know if this is something United have looked at? Or may act on?

Like Martial or Rashford he can play right across the front 3 positions and in my opinion would be a pretty good signing. Not my first choice but still a good option.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jan 2019 05:04:13
From now we need to target players who can take us to the next level.
We already have 6 forwards fighting for 3 spots.
Werner doesn't seem to be a significant upgrade amongst the current options.

25 Jan 2019 06:23:15
Imo Timo Werner would be an upgrade on our striker options having said that he doesn't appear to be an option ed002 gave a reply to a similar question on the European page 😁.

25 Jan 2019 10:20:02
Werner is best utilised through the middle. If we signed him and played him out wide it'd be a disaster. Doubt it will happen anyway - Bayern need new blood after all.

25 Jan 2019 10:38:16
Ed002 said he would be interested in moving to us but we are not interested in him. I like him I think he is a talented player and can play across the front 3. He did disappoint in the World Cup but no German player really covered themselves in glory. I would love to sign him but I assume he will be off to Bayern in the near future.

25 Jan 2019 12:04:12
I quite like Werner however, I would like to see one more season of Lukaku under potentially the guidance of Solskjaer.
He has all the physical attributes to be a dominant striker, he can score goals in the league and at International level. I just think he needs some guidance and coaching to fine tune the areas that really let him down, 1st touch, movement off the ball and a bit of composure in front of goal. I appreciate these are all very important things but like I said, he just needs fine tuning as it seems his professional career he has got by on his raw talent that got him to this standard but since then, no one has really developed him to go onto the next level like a Drogba. A good pre season under someone like Solskjaer could really unlock that potential and take him from a 15-20 goals a season to a regular 25-30 goals a season.

25 Jan 2019 13:17:20
I agree we need players who can take are upgrades, however, we have thought a lot of players we have signed over the past few years are upgrades and they have been poor.

Also it's hard to see Mata (wonderful player but not physically able to press and counter at pace) and Sanchez (has pretty much been a disaster all round) having much of a future here so we need to sign an attacking player.

Like I said he isn't my first choice but he's 22 years old, can play all 3 forward positions, is very quick, played at a high level for the last 3 or 4 seasons and he actually wants to play for United. Compared to other options for attacking positions we've been linked with such as Perisic or Bergwijn, I think he is pretty good option.

25 Jan 2019 14:28:54
Werner in and Lukaku out.

23 Jan 2019 23:00:49
Their may be 15 games to go that decide our final league position and I'm a little bit worried to say the least. CS is a liability in the box and PJ lacks the tools to be a decent defender. I wish Bailly took the chance to get back into the team due to the fact that the LCB position is our wekest point in the team.

We should be going all out to get Kalidou koulibly in the team but we will twiddle our thumbs and watch klopp sign him up and kick ourselves for not signing him.

Agree4 Disagree7

24 Jan 2019 03:39:06
Kalidou is happy where he is, and not available for transfer for now.

24 Jan 2019 12:15:39
He is the obvious choice at CB, strong in the air, great with the ball at his feet and prefers to operate as the left hand centre back.

Yet, making this transfer in January without a full time manager was never going to happen. He will cost a club record fee for a defender possibly for any player.

You don't break club record fees for a player while you don't have a manager. If the next manager doesn't want him then the club have wasted loads of money and look very foolish.

24 Jan 2019 13:32:33
Bailly has never played LCB, he always plays on the right of the two.

We can't pin our hopes on the accident waiting to happen that is Bailly. If Arsenal are interested we should let him go, as Arsenal/ Europa League is his level.

As Kenedy said, Koulibaly seems happy where he is as has been mentioned by 002 more than once.

If we're to push on and challenge then we need to prioritise an established CB with experience of winning titles, and move Bailly, Rojo and Jones on to clubs suited to their level.

24 Jan 2019 14:24:57
Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Lindelof been starting LCB and been playing well?

I think the issue is finding a RCB to partner him.

24 Jan 2019 14:57:55
Lindelof played on the LCB under Mourinho but looks much better on the RCB where has been played by Ole.

24 Jan 2019 15:23:35
Koulibaly maybe unsettled in Italy because of the continuous racist attacks.
At 27, he would be a brilliant top class addition to our team. He could have similar impact which Van Dijk did at Liverpool.

24 Jan 2019 19:09:03
If there is any truth to the ongoing speculation then surely a punt on the £30m Alderweireld at a quarter of the price is the way to go? A proven top Prem defender whose absense would put a chink in Tottenham’s armour too.

24 Jan 2019 19:59:55
Spenno, I wouldn't be upset if we brought in Alderweireld. I do have two slight concerns with him though. Firstly his injury record recently hasn't been great, and at his age that is unlikely to improve. Secondly he is exclusively a right sided CB, which is the same as all our CB's bar Rojo. So that would mean one of our current CB's would have to play in their weaker position. Which isn't ideal.

That being said Alderweireld is an excellent CB.

25 Jan 2019 10:46:37
If Kouilably isn't available maybe we can enquire about his National team's CB partner Salif Sane (I know he just join Schalke this season but . ) or Jonathan Tah.

26 Jan 2019 06:45:38
I thought Bailly took a good step forward against Arsenal last night. He and Lindelof May still prove to be a good combination. Both are still on the young side for CB’s.
An experienced (though not old) CB would still be a good addition.
Then try Tuanzebe as the 4th, Smalling as a last resort.

26 Jan 2019 18:37:42
Only a handful must watch our games. I'm well aware Lindelof played LCB but that was under Mourinho. KenedyAndy is aware of my point

Lindelof is playing RCB now and Jones was LCB and was a liability hence me saying LCB is our weak point. It seems some posters would rather find argument or flaws on this site for any reason.

We are playing after Mourinho so my comments are present in position not asking for judgemental biased views poking posters with stick

As 002 would say RTFP and proof read h5y to think through.

23 Jan 2019 11:58:06
Ed002, I see we are being linked in the press with a move for Paul Mitchell again. Obviously the fact that he has worked with Pochettino at two different clubs and Pochettino is apparently our number one target is the basis of these links.

Are the club interested in Mitchell? And what's your opinion of him as a candidate for the Director of football role our club is pursuing?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Red Bull think a lot of him and for the past couple of months have been exploring a new global role for him as another EPL side has shown an interest. I am not aware of any approach by MU.}

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 18:31:19
Cheers, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - I would not want to see MU opt for Mitchell. It would not work in my opinion, but maybe to really move a head the club need to take the knife to the bad part of the apple?}

23 Jan 2019 18:40:03
Which part of the club is the bad part, in your opinion, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - The pointed bit.}

23 Jan 2019 20:14:34
Fascinating, from what I can find out about Mitchell he sounds like a United fans dream. Looks towards youth, won't sign players to block the pathway of young players, has unearthed some great signings for the clubs he works for.

So why do you feel Mitchell wouldn't work? And what is the bad part of the apple you allude to?

Thanks.

24 Jan 2019 06:06:39
The problem with that Shappy is blooding youth and winning trophies in basically impossible at this current time. We have a few very talented kids coming through, but what manager would risk their job here trying to make sure the kids get their chance?

24 Jan 2019 06:46:23
Mumbles, the right one for our club. We have only ever had consistent success under two managers. Sir Matt and Sir Alex, both built that success on blooding youth players.

Giving youth a chance is what Manchester United is about, a 80 year record of having an academy graduate in the match day squad is unmatched by any club anywhere in the world.

24 Jan 2019 10:30:17
Thanks for the info ed. Is it true that Andrea Berta is reconsidering now that Jose has left? I thought he was one of the people who jose was happy to work with? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything happening with Andrea Berta right now.}

24 Jan 2019 11:06:28
Perfect thanks for the swift reply Ed.

24 Jan 2019 15:57:50
Isn't an apple with a pointed bit just a pear?

23 Jan 2019 08:57:34
Aloha Ed002. Has there been any additions to the list that the club are looking to bring in since the Sharkapod? I ask because perhaps Ole has had more time with the team and can better opine on the matter now.

Thanks for all of your info you provide.

{Ed002's Note - Bergwijn has again been looked at but there has not been any approach or offer and there is plenty of interest from elsewhere. Unless AM were to leave it is hard to see him getting much game time, but interest in Perisic did not leave with JM so there are thoughts about making a change still. I suspect the club will wait until the summer before doing anything significabt.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 12:32:33
I really hope we don't pursue Perisic. He will be 30 years next year and operates more towards the left.
May be Bale for 3 years?
He would instantly solve RW problem and Chong/ Gomez/ Greenwood to eventually replace him.

23 Jan 2019 17:26:14
Thanks as always Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

24 Jan 2019 01:59:48
Perisic would surely be a hypocritical move by the club, having denied Mourinho the very same player.

21 Jan 2019 20:50:22
There has been mumblings of new contracts for pogba, martial and de gea.

Thoughts?

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Jan 2019 09:00:23
May it come to pass.

22 Jan 2019 09:17:13
Part of me thinks the sanchez contract is complicating things because if he is the highest earner at the club then all three of those players deserve to be earning more than him on both form and potential and the fact that sanchez has been abysmal.

That is obviously not sustainable so Getting him off the books would make lives a lot easier for the contract negotiators at the club.

22 Jan 2019 10:42:09
All 3 are fundamental for the future.
Sanchez on top form will easily bang in 15 plus goals per season. His workrate, pressing from the front suits Ole's style.

22 Jan 2019 10:45:52
The fruits of Ole's labours are not just being shown on the pitch. 3 Major players who were said to be on their way out are now talking about new contracts.7 wins from 7 so the boy is doing good.

22 Jan 2019 12:52:23
Pogba is actively looking for a new club. I wouldn't be rewarding him with a new contract considering his behaviour over the last year.

22 Jan 2019 15:14:25
I would be delighted if the all renewed their contracts. In terms of Sanchez, I would offer him to Athletico Madrid. If Griezman does leave this summer Sanchez would be a good replacement for them. I suspect he would be happier in a Spanish speaking country. Someone would like his work ethic, the only problem might be his wishes.

I just don’t see where Sanchez fits at Utd. I suspect he doesn’t want to play on the right. He wants left wing or up front. I am sorry but rashford all day long as striker and Martial is left wing first choice so it’s thank you and good bye to Sanchez. He has had 12mths to prove his worth and has failed to do so.

22 Jan 2019 21:03:48
Crazy idea to be rewarding one of the best players in the world, now on best form, with an improved contract. Far more sensible to sell him to a competitor and replace with an inferior product.

22 Jan 2019 23:26:36
Pliny, he doesn't want to be here. His agent is hawking him around to anyone who will listen. He's acted like a petulant child and let's not get into his ridiculous instagram posts after we sacked Jose.

Yeah, on his day he's class but he's more likely to have average above average performance than a great one.

There's a reason why Madrid and Barcelona don't fancy him. He'd rather push for a move back to Juventus than play his football at Old Trafford. Let's reward the lad with a wage increase because he's had 3 good games since the new manager took over.

23 Jan 2019 05:14:31
We need to wait till the end of season to decide on Pogba. First time he is being used correctly and he is making things happen - goals and key passes.
If Pogba maintains consistency, he would be a real asset.
Hopefully becoming a father would bring more maturity out of him.

23 Jan 2019 17:33:22
agree with you here Mumbles. Football fans have the shortest of memories. We need to wait for things to go wrong for Pogba and see how he reacts before committing to a new deal for him. He's capable of destroying the team as much as he is of improving it. We've seen both sides as evidence already this season.

23 Jan 2019 20:16:38
Fair point Wazza about seeing how he responds when things stop going our way, but Mumbles, I think you are judging him unfairly.

JM misused him on the pitch and repeatedly used him as a scapegoat. Most players would have struggled, and reacted badly. Since he's been used properly by OGS, he hasn't had a single average performance.

Against Spurs, everyone talked about DDG's saves, but no-one mentioned that Pogba had at least 3 near misses which came closer to scoring than any of Spurs chances. He's being given a chance to play a role that suits him, in a system that suits him, something JM never did. That is what he needs to be judged on, not how he played under JM.

20 Jan 2019 21:51:01
I guess it's a conditioning and fitness issue that becomes more and more of a struggle to hold on to the leading score.

It is more likely down to mourinhos out dated game where we were becoming stagnated in our play. The sideways and backwards play meant no pressing and less work rate so fitness levels need to be drastically improved.

Enough gloom and doom 7 wins from 7 well done Ole GGMU.

Agree6 Disagree2

21 Jan 2019 06:05:24
Yes, the intensity of our pressing drops down drastically after the hour mark.
Hopefully, it gets picked up gradually over the coming months.

21 Jan 2019 09:37:24
There are several issues when settling into a new style of play.

For us we have gone from a team that runs the least to attempting to press higher and more frequently. That level of fitness isn't something that comes out of thin air and will take time to build up.

Also attacking patterns and combinations which just didn't happen before will have to be worked on, improved and perfected.

February is a tough month, we have been fortunate that we have had a run of games which on paper at least are easier to practice and improve. Over the next month we will see what this squad and this manager is truly capable of.

21 Jan 2019 11:13:27
Lingard and Herrera are two that work their bollocks off and then drop off mid way through the second half in games. I hope that Sanchez can seamlessly fit in to the fluid front three and that will alleviate one problem, Fred should likewise be able to dovetail in the midfield but he's only shown flashes of promise thus far. If both of those start playing like we know they can then we should be able to blitz teams for 90 minutes. Sadly, as Gary Neville said in commentary vs Spurs I don't see where Lukaku or Mata fits in to it.

23 Jan 2019 20:12:27
Thanks everyone for your posts. In time the fitness will get better.
