Ed, would you be so kind to share any info you have on Eder Militao of Porto please. We've been linked with him today and seems like a new one to me. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach and I am not sure if he could get a WP.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2018 08:01:25
United plus any centre back under the sun is an easy story for any paper to write given our obvious deficiencies in the area and fans desperaion for new shiny toys.

25 Nov 2018 16:27:49
Who here thinks that we have been better off with giggs as the manager, if i remember correctly the few games he was in charged we played good footy and he brought quite a few youngsters to the first team. One thing i know for sure, if i were one of the owners i would get rid of Mr Mourinho, pogba and Sanchez asap.

It really is embarrassing having so much money and playing the way we are, we really look like a bottom or even second division team, do mourinho train how to attack? does he come to game having a plan on how to attack teams? it seems to me that they focus their training on how to stop the other team and see if the attacking players can come up with a good play during the game to score but there doesn't seem to be a pattern or an organized way to attack.

Agree4 Disagree17

25 Nov 2018 16:39:27
Giggs? Not yet, can sort out the Wales team in the time being. Would rather LVG over Giggs.

25 Nov 2018 17:16:53
played 4 won 2 drew 1 and lost 1? I think if i remember rightly with the title winning side and we didn't play a top side in them 4 games.

Least we would attack mind.

25 Nov 2018 17:35:51
you don't get to spend £400 million on transfers managing the Wales team. Currently this side is worse then the Moyes era and quite a few of our better players wanting away. When Jose finally gets the boot we could be in a right pickle.

25 Nov 2018 17:53:25
Yes but he's made Wales worse, couple that with his awful tactics and they won't be in the Euros in 2020.

25 Nov 2018 18:20:50
anyone with an attacking philosophy who plays on the front foot can manage this team and get more out of them. Mourinho wants out and is preparing himself to get fired so he can get his payout. His team captain is Antonio Valencia, Matic is his favourite in the dressing room. These are his leaders.

The only scenario i can predict at the end of the season is Pochettino in and Howe will replace him at Spurs. But i think the target he has been set is top 4 by end of the year otherwise he will be sacked.

he will always use his excuse the club didn't back him in the summer transfer window but with the team he has there is no way they should be where they are.

{Ed025's Note - that should be players IM7, a team plays together as a unit and for each other mate..

25 Nov 2018 18:58:52
Have you ever seen giggs talk. He’s not the man for us at all I’m afraid. You’re right, not sure we’d be any worse off, but we need a proper coach. Klopp, Poch, Pep would have all worked at Utd I think.

26 Nov 2018 00:04:27
Just glad Remanutd isn’t in charge. You can’t honestly think Giggs at this moment in time would do a better job. In my opinion it’s some of the players who need to go not the manager. Players have far too much power now.

26 Nov 2018 03:40:49
Didn't giggs manage the game where me made Norwich look like Barcelona as they played the passing game while couldn't even get near the ball.

26 Nov 2018 07:35:41
He has not made wales worse at all. He is trying to change the team around by playing youngsters alongside the older guard who he will phase out over time. Wales have played some good stuff under Giggs and as a Welshman and fan I’m happy to see us try to play the way we do and have a lot of talented youngsters getting games and gelling, only bodes well for the future. At least Giggs knows what it means to be a United player and thr character needed and how to play the United way. Remember the talent pool is far more limited for wales than England, at a club like United he’d have financial backing. I’m not saying we should go ahead and bring him in but I don’t see us being any worse off place wise, in fact as some have said they’d rather see us attack and lose then at least you’d get attack, it’s not always about the big name, LVG, Jose haven’t worked out (least not yet in Jose’s case) but I’d hate to see a legend get panned by our fans anyway.

26 Nov 2018 15:40:52
Agree, Welsh. I've enjoyed watching Wales play lately. Same with Northern Ireland. We used to be awful to watch but got results, focusing on solid defending and set-pieces, but the manager has tried to bring in a much more possession-orientated, attacking style. It hasn't paid off in terms of results yet, mostly because we need a player who can put the ball in the net. We've played Austria, Bosnia and Ireland off the park, but not got the results the football has deserved. That's why our fans are still backing the manager, they can see what the manager is trying to do, and it's close. I think Wales are in the same boat. Unlike the Republic, who have been awful to watch lately as well as not getting results. No surprise they've made a change.

26 Nov 2018 20:23:55
I'm not saying Giggs should be the current manager, i was just trying to suggest that we could have been better off with Giggs insted of Moyes, VG and the primitive one. we keep making all these mistakes that are costing us badly, the sooner we get rid of the primitive one the better in my opinion, get Howe in or Poch and you'll see a big difference at least in intent to play footy the right way.

26 Nov 2018 22:55:58
I think this is where the clamour for a DoF comes from. Clearly we are looking for one as Ed stated.

The only way a Howe would even remotely work would be if he is left to purely coach and leave the rest to an experienced DoF. Until we have one, we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. If it’s a choice between sacking Jose and putting in a interim, I’d back Jose.

We shall see in January just what the club will do. No attempt at transfers and it’s a clear indication Jose is off in summer, which I think he is already. It’s just not worked out for him and us and I think he needs to go back to Italy or take over at Portugal. A marriage of convenience always breaks up in the end.

27 Nov 2018 12:16:53
There is little point in changing the manager while Woodward is there. Jose has been far from impressive but I still feel he sometimes signed who he was allowed to sign rather than who he wanted! The rot at United started in the boardroom!

27 Nov 2018 18:27:48
There is a manager called Southgate, he seems to embrace youth and has an attacking team. When is he free?

27 Nov 2018 18:53:55
I do like Southgate as well, yea i have never thought about him before. Howe, Poch or Southgate but knowing Ed we will get Zidane and we will be waste another 2.3 years again and the cycle will continue.

27 Nov 2018 22:36:45
Better off with big Sam.

27 Nov 2018 23:06:40
Southgate is clearly a coach and not a manager. Until we have that structure in place any future appointment is pointless. Also why would he leave a job he clearly loves and is doing well in managing his country?

27 Nov 2018 23:18:55
Personally think Pablo Machin looks a fantastic option. Young coach who has made a reputation with a small team beating the big boys. Now he has Sevilla top of the league and plays good counter attacking football. Unfortunately think everyone would see it as to early for him, but would rather him than Zidane, jardim or Howe. While poch just seems unattainable.

23 Nov 2018 17:41:01
According to the latest leaks, Ramos failed a drug test the day before the 2017 CL Final which was then covered up by eufa, couple that with the amount of games they cheated through that CL Campaign the trophy should be rescinded. Absolutely hate that club!

{Ed025's Note - and what..give it to liverpool scholes?....i call it gamesmanship mate.. :)

Agree3 Disagree1

23 Nov 2018 17:57:46
Or Juventus Ed025, who they played in the 2017 final lol. Actually, they can donate it to Everton because you haven't won one before😂😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - oh right scholesy, i must have slept for a year, i just would not be able to cope with "we,ve won it six times" mate, we would have won one in the mid eighties when we were the best team in europe only english clubs were banned, thanks for that liverpool.. :(

23 Nov 2018 19:17:00
Your favourite site sports witness have delved into these claims scholes, seems there a much to do with nothing.

Dont believe everything you read mate lol :)

23 Nov 2018 20:56:54
Not believing it yet. Never said he was either, but according to the leaks he is, and it so he should reprimanded DSG.

25 Nov 2018 07:28:53
As a Liverpool fan, we were simply not good enough when Salah went off injured so I’d absolutely hate it if we were given the trophy for being second best.

On Ed25’s point, blaming LFC for not winning the European Cup. I thought we were branded “ the delusional ones”. 😂

There are no guarantees in life, let alone football, so to say “we’d have won one had it not been for Liverpool Football Club “ is totally absurd. As we all know, the best team doesn’t always win. We weren’t the best team in 2005 but we were when we lost in 2007. Porto certainly weren’t the best team in the competition when they won the European cup under Mourinho.

Ed25, Everton have had 28 years since the ban from European football to win the European Cup and 30 years prior to that somcecthe competition was formed. That’s a total of nearly 60 years.

You talk a lot of sense mate, not on this occasion 😜.

{Ed025's Note - i have to blame someone drogie...and who better than LFC mate.. :)

22 Nov 2018 15:58:43
Ed any truth in the rumour Madrid are interested in Rasford.

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest from Real Madrid and Juventus to some extent.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Nov 2018 17:00:35
Why would they want him? He's rubbish, even the great, the wonderful and the all knowing Jose Mourinho can't get the best out of him.

Clearly he can't be any good.

22 Nov 2018 16:53:22
Cheers ed.

22 Nov 2018 17:11:11
Loads a talent going to be a good player . Hopefully at United.

22 Nov 2018 18:04:24
Shappy, I think your single minded hatred is slowly damaging your reputation on here.

22 Nov 2018 20:15:39
Agreed Fresh.

22 Nov 2018 20:38:27
Be careful shaps don't want to be one of them players who just come on to have a rant about certain players .

To be fair to shappy he does make some good points about Jose and asks some Interesting questions.
That people either miss or choose to ignore .

22 Nov 2018 21:35:18
+1 Fresh.

22 Nov 2018 22:31:51
There are a lot of people don’t rate Rashford and would be happy to see him sold. Yet Madrid and Juve must see something others don’t.

22 Nov 2018 23:09:16
Played in more games than anybody else last season as a 20 yo more than players like scholes becks butt did at the same age. I think he is doing fine. The manager sees the same perhaps ajh.

22 Nov 2018 23:13:41
The reason Madrid and co are interested in Rashford it is because he is going to be cheaper then their first choice targets.

It is one thing to play in la liga and serie A then playing in the premier league.

I also think if Mourinho stays then one of Rashford or Martial is not going to get the games they want as Mourinho is under pressure to win and he won't win with two rookies who are still learning their game.

It is best for Rashfors to move to get important game time. He could even go on loan to a premier league to get game time and then come bk to our club when he is ready.

We have become a cosy club and need to be ruthless in decision making.

23 Nov 2018 00:02:46
So you think we should get rid of a rookie like martial who has scored in his last 5 games and buy who .
A world-class player like Sanchez?

Maybe Madrid and juve are interested in Rasford because they can see the potential of a 21 year old player playing for England and United.

I have taken a step back from the site to be honest because some of the views and insights really have changes from a few year back.

21 Nov 2018 17:32:32
Evening Ed,

You've mentioned that Mourinho wants to remould the squad and may be afforded the funds to do so. Are you aware of how radical his changes are expected to be? I could quite easily foresee a clear out of at least 10 players with half a dozen coming in.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Nov 2018 18:36:12
Mourinho has bought 11 players, and allowed another 14 to leave. Two of which were his own signings (Zlatan and Mkhitaryan) . This process has cost the club around 400m so far.

Yet Mourinho wants to sell or release as many as another 10 players and replace them.

Seriously, what the hell. Who takes a job then says he wants to sell 99% of the squad and replace 24 players with 24 new 30-80m signings in order to be successful? If we worked that out at an average of 50m per signing he would want the club to spend over 1.2 billion on new players.

Hell I could win the league if you give me a billion pounds to spend on new players.

21 Nov 2018 18:56:45
Shappy the answer to the question at the top of paragraph 3 is pep.

21 Nov 2018 21:02:02

Were they all Mourinho’s signings? I refer you to Ed’s post lower down. “he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as they have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option”.

You can keep blaming the manager for everything, but have to ignore what the Ed tells you.

21 Nov 2018 21:27:24
Lets face it we've got players signed by 4 different managers and some of those are either aging and need replacing, have injury/ fitness issues and are unreliable or just aren't good enough. We all know who they are and its time they were moved on.

21 Nov 2018 21:33:14
Not sure jose makes all the signings Shappy. Pogba for example was a club signing, he was coming with or without Jose being here.

21 Nov 2018 21:48:44
FZZ, Jose wanted Pogba while at Chelsea. So I'm sure he wasn't too upset with the signing.

Suddenly half the signings aren't Jose's. Who do people think is making the decisions on who to sign if not the manager?

Are Fellaini and Mata really Moyes signings?

Did LvG really sign a single player?

The manager wants a certain type of player for a specific role within the squad. He tasks the scouts to find them. They compile a list, the scouting team and the management team discuss which ones to pursue, the rest is down to the money people.

If a player is signed Jose has given it the okay. Therefore, it's his signing ultimately.

21 Nov 2018 22:30:20

We get it, you want to hang, draw and quarter Mourinho

I think the real question is who is making the decisions because for a manager with such experience it is hard to see why some have been signed, unless they are not his signings. However, you won’t be happy until Jose has been dismissed, so they all have to be his signings to fit the prosecution evidence at his trial

By the way it is hard to argue that Fellaini was not a Moyes signing given where he came from, how and why.

22 Nov 2018 00:40:36
Lvg didn’t buy Herrera shaw di Maria or falcao snappy if that helps.

22 Nov 2018 12:31:39
Can't have it both ways shappy. Can't say every signing is 100% on Jose an say moyes an van gaal weren't responsible for theirs.

22 Nov 2018 13:08:53
That's the point Mort, I'm saying that everyone slated BOTH Moyes and LvG for their poor signings. No one ever said they weren't responsible for their signings.

Yet now people want to make excuses for why after spending 400m on new players it's not Mourinho's fault.

Suddenly he didn't pick the players we signed during his time as manager. He isn't to blame. In fact every signing that has been a success was his signing and every one that has failed to live up to expectations are club signings made by some dark and shadowy mysterious person. But definitely not Jose.

It's ridiculous, the double standards.

The same people who wanted Moyes and LvG sacked and used their poor signings as a stick to beat them with refuse to blame any of our recent poor signings on our current manager.

22 Nov 2018 13:26:38

One question for you.

Have those signings been a failure due to their own attitude or because of their ability?

I can clearly see all of them have the talent and it is mainly due to their attitudetfor failing at United.

22 Nov 2018 13:43:06
Cant see the maths Shappy tbh- out of the players signed since he came: 11 in yes but Zlatan came on a free miki in the deal for sanchez but out of the players he sold I can't work out the 14 unless you count the undisclosed younguns or the frees like valdes and rooney? Out of the sales, mcnair and love to sunderland - they ain't good enough for them!
Schneiderlin and januzai not exactluy world beaters, blind =squad player not getting game time johnstone prob 3rd choice. there's only Depay (in an inferior frech league), Zlatan (37 / 38) and Miki ok for arsenal but its obvious why they were sold. The retained buys atm are of a better if not the standard we want, and also would attract more value in sales. So both areas are covered in improvement and money; not the level we have been used to but other teams have improved massively and we can't have all the sweets. Club problems that affect results run deeper than the next transfer window or two being able to sort them out and although JM is supposedly steering the ship he cannot be held responsible for all that happens at the club.

22 Nov 2018 14:35:41
People want to beat Moyes and LVG with poor signings stick Shappy because nobody knew about the transfer policy at that point. Many were led to believe that the managers were in charge of the spending not the board.

Now people have come to the realisation about the situation they have changed their mind is that ok?

22 Nov 2018 15:06:35
Is right people want to make excuses after excuse for Jose. Yet slated moyes and lvg for the same things?

22 Nov 2018 15:54:01
Singh, signings fail for all sorts of different reasons. And yes a certain amount of blame always has to be placed on the player.

However, none of the players we have signed we're playing poorly for their previous teams, in fact they were playing well. That's why we signed them.

So why don't they play well for us? Is it a case of their poor attitude? Maybe, but then why didn't that attitude stop them playing well for their previous club? Why does their poor attitude only effect their form for Manchester United and not either their previous club or their international team?

Many of the players we slate every week for not playing well, go off and play well for their national side. Pogba played a key role in his country winning the world cup. So why can't he play like that for us?

Is it the tactics? Or is our manager unable to get the most out of him?

{Ed025's Note - thats a fair point shappy..

22 Nov 2018 16:20:13
FZZ, When did the club release a statement declaring the manager is no longer responsible for signings?

Isn't it just speculation? The Ed's have said that there are several people involved in recruitment, just like any large organisation. That the manager and his team of assistants, Ed Woodward and the scouting team work together to draw up a list of targets based on the managers wishes.

This is the same for every club, more or less world wide, and has been for many many many years. Ultimately though the buck stops with the manager.

Jose stated he wanted a CB, so the club agreed to sign Bailey with Joses blessing. Jose wanted a second CB, he had friends back in Portugal who told him Lindelof was a great player in the making, he sent his scouts who agreed, the club then purchased Lindelof. The second CB signed by/ for Mourinho.

Yet Smalling is still his go to first choice, why because Mourinho is unable to get the best out of Bailey and Lindelof.

22 Nov 2018 16:36:04
I think I said at the time van gaal wasn't responsible for most of his signings. I said along he didn't sign di Maria and falcao. That was on woody. Also most on here accepted Shaw and Herrera were moyes signings. As for moyes he wasn't backed and made one good and one bad signing.

I'm not making excuses for Jose. He has caused a lot of problems. But regards signings we don't know which are his and which aren't. Pogba again has woody all over it. No Jose wasn't going to turn down a player of his talent and the personality clash has led to issues.

If/ when Jose goes he needs to be followed by woody.

22 Nov 2018 17:00:20
Mort you think Shaw and Herrera were moyes signings?

Do you think Woodward scouts and identifies players?

22 Nov 2018 17:17:34
Moyes tried to sign Herrera and was linked with Shaw all through his tenure. So yeah i'd say they were his. The deals were almost done when moyes went. LvG agreed to complete them. As has been said by shappy the managers putting his list forward its on woody to get them. We've been told woody has a mystery advisor. I think woody also to an extent does identify signings. We know he's a commercial bean counter and we know he's obsessed with marque signings.

22 Nov 2018 17:59:57
Even tho both players signed after moyes and in Herrera case we had been watching him and linked even befor moyes?
It may be on woody to get them all though a lot of the legal stuff etc is handled by other people

So Herrera and Shaw 2 players signed after moyes are moyes signings but the players signed while Jose is at the club are not Jose signings .
A pogba a player ed has told us Jose wanted at Chelsea and United is a Woodward signing . Ok.

22 Nov 2018 18:29:47
This just shows how much we need an appropriate manager who can be at the club for the long term. By appropriate I mean a manager who plays progressive, attacking football and develops young players i.e someone who suits the ethos and history of the club.

A manager who entertains us, plays the 'Utd way' and shows us our youth products will get a lot of leeway and patience from the fans even if results are mediocre while he builds his team and implements his ideas.

Chopping and changing negative managers makes no commercial sense and we end up with the dogs dinner we have now which is going to cost a lot of money to sort out. We also lose a lot of support and subsequently sponsorship because who wants to watch boring football from average players?

I can't understand how all this isn't bleedin' obvious to the supposed professional people in the industry who run the club.

22 Nov 2018 23:25:46

Do you really think Pogba played great for France?

The players playing well at previous clubs -

Bailly - He had like one season in top flight and then we signed him.

Lindelof - He is starting to show form now.

Martial - No body knew who he was and we signed him. Its not like he was pulling trees in Monaco as he only had one season with them i think.

Pogba - Played for Juve but he had the top players like Pirlo and doing the donkey work. He doesn't have that here and that is why he messes up for when he doesn't bother to put a shift in.

Sanchez - He is the only player i'd say i'm pissed about as he should be tearing the league but again he is a cry baby as Ed pointed out Sanchez doesn't want to play on the wings. That is poor attitude in my eyes.

Zlatan - Did really well and was unlucky he got injured and went off.

Mkhitaryan - This was a big gamble and it i think the whole world k ew he has attitude probl3ms and was shifted out.

Fred - Its his first year.

Lukaku - Has played to his potentional and doesn't have bad attitude. I personally don't think he is the type of striker that will win us the league on his own.

So can you explain to me who was really pulling trees at their previous club apart from Sanchez who i think should be doing well.

I know u guys don't like the manager but u got to be fair and give the players the same treatment! .

23 Nov 2018 00:10:37
So first of bailly was playing very well, started at United very well to be honest but has regressed . But many on the site raving about him

Highly rated by those who know there stuff, currently showing the talent he has

Was a good player for juve was one and is still one of the big name players for France who have just won the world cup

Need I explain

German player of the year doing well at arsenal involved in more goal than any other player from limited starts when we sold him

Scored 16 league goals last season compared to 25 in an average Everton team the previous season and 23 in 21 games from Belgium.

19 Nov 2018 17:08:04
so if rumors are true and the following of

dave the save


all either not wanted or don't want to be here are true where does this leave us,

we can't just go out and buy 11 players in one window.

i might be over reacting but it doesn't look good atm.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Nov 2018 18:11:07
Barring one or two that looks like just what we need. A clear plan, a clear out and significant investment.

19 Nov 2018 18:54:33
Things would look a whole lot better if we sold the majority of those players imo bolger.
I think you forgot darmian too mate. 😂
Ideally from that list ddg rash and martial stay. The rest won't be missed a great deal in reality they either don't play a lot or don't overly impress when they do or in the case of valencia mata and herrera there is no real significant improvement in them at this stage of their career.

19 Nov 2018 19:14:02
wouldnt have any sleepless nights if
All these left.

19 Nov 2018 21:28:37
We have probably never sold or signed anywhere close to that many first team players in a window. 50% of them will still be here next September.

19 Nov 2018 21:33:45
Also Darmian. Good post Bolger, you've simply illustrated just how much work needs to be done. It won't be easy shifting this lot either because of their wages.

20 Nov 2018 09:43:58
Also Young missed off.

Id only keep about 6 out of all of them.

20 Nov 2018 10:41:50
Also we may have to play the free transfer market. Aaron Ramsey for example should at least be looked at.

20 Nov 2018 11:52:45
It's obvious isn't it?

It leaves us with a starting 11 of:

Romero, Dalot, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw, Matic, Fred, McTominay, Lingard, Lukaku and Young.

In a 433. Plus anyone we can sign, although we might not be able to convince many to sign if they see that many players jumping ship.

20 Nov 2018 16:17:22
Oh my word shappy all those players leaving and you still can't fit fellaini into your team. Maybe you should have the job above jose😂😂.

20 Nov 2018 23:50:30
Ken, Fallaini is on the bench waiting for the 70th minutes when we are a goal down.

20 Nov 2018 23:55:40
Don’t know why people are always quick to write Mata off our books. I know he’s past the point of improving but he still offers creativity where we currently lack it, gives 100% and consistently performs when played (which is hard to say of any United player at the minute) .

Would happily keep him as a squad player.

21 Nov 2018 09:40:43
Id keep Mata and Herrera. Good squad players. De Gea, martial, rashford are all must keeps. Pogba if he wanted to stay but if he doesn't move him on. The rest can go.

21 Nov 2018 13:14:17
Thats fair mort i'd agree with that.

19 Nov 2018 11:59:43
Ed i hope you are well,

Are we interested in signing a midfielder in january?

There are lots of reports that we are going to bid for Lorenzo Pellegrini in january.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timings of transfers. Clubs are often reluctant to sell in January as they cannot find replacements and certainlt Roma will not want to sell Lorenzo Pellegrini. But as I have said, Manchester United are looking again at LP who has been on the list since last January but he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as they have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 12:31:30
Sorry Ed002, Was Tony Kroos the preferred option by Mourinho?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death - why do I keep getting the same questions? Read the posts, use the search engine.}

19 Nov 2018 13:03:10
with the new champions league rule changes taking effect, I am sure we will see more transfer activity in January.

Thanks Ed - is there any names you can give for a right sided midfielder?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Fred plays on the right of midfield if desired but most CM players are adaptable enough. The club do not seem to be attempting to look for specifically RM players.}

19 Nov 2018 13:26:30
Thanks ED. I don't think he will be a sensible choice as he is very inexperienced but you just never know how it work out if we sign him.

19 Nov 2018 15:16:53
Apologies Ed, meant more right sided forwards?

{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is an immediate priority right now Fresh. CB remains the priority.}

wasted trip for Jose going to Switzerland than if he went to see Toby Alderweireld.

20 Nov 2018 10:06:22
Maybe Nico Elvedi ;)

I read today Mr Mouriniho would be keen on Luis Campos becoming the DoF at Man Utd. However the Utd board want to hold off on hiring anyone until JMs future is clear. This came from an article by Duncan Castles who seems to be a bit of mouthpiece for JM, wondering if there is a thread of truth to this?

Agree1 Disagree3

Correct me if i'm wrong but Ed002 said he'd be the ideal candidate for a DOF, to work alongside Jose. Getting tired of talking about issues at the club, need a revamp.

18 Nov 2018 15:40:40
Seems to be able to spot a player based on his signings at Monaco and perhaps telling how Jardim managed after he left.

I have feeling we will go for Paul Mitchell and try for Poch at the end of the season.

Agree the team needs a rebuild and football management structure also. Question of timing and if the JM stays.

18 Nov 2018 16:51:24
Regardless of JM staying or not. Would it not be a good move for the club on a whole to appoint this guy if possible.

18 Nov 2018 21:40:28
Looks like that way to me based on his record. But we to be taking a long time to make a move. I searched Luis Campos a sea his name came up 2016!

Hi Ed002,
Is there serious interest from Manchester United for Everton Soares?
Is he a viable January target?al

{Ed002's Note - He signed a new contract after Manchester City made an enquiry in the summer but I am not aware of any approach by Manchester United. He would be a Martial replacement if there were interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2018 22:12:46
Hi ed002. You said earlier in the week that martial wants to leave.
Is there any clubs showing strong interest in him?
There are reports the club want him to stay but i'm assuming that if he won't sign a new deal the club will probably have to sell if they get a good offer rather than keep an unhappy player.

{Ed002's Note - Inter Milan are very keen on taking Anthony Martial whereas Juventus see him as probably over valued and Bayern have preferred options.}

17 Nov 2018 07:29:58
Thanks Ed.

17 Nov 2018 11:46:24
Imagine the meltdown when Jose sells him to Inter and Perisic replaces him.

17 Nov 2018 14:48:30
Eric i think martial has unbelievable ability. In the right team he would flourish. Under the right coach he will do great. If he won't sign a new contract then it puts the club in a tough spot.

18 Nov 2018 08:05:12
I agree Ken, and he’s only just starting to show it which is great for us. Must be a huge coincidence now he’s after a new contract or new club.

16 Nov 2018 13:47:04
So we are linked with another 32 yr old Defender today, Godin.
Although he is one of the best defenders around i would still not opt for him as he is not a long term solution. But looks like a Jose player considering his interest in Older players.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Nov 2018 15:42:34
20m for him according to rumours. Can be said expensive for a 32 year old player who will be 33 by the time we purchase him. But once he is signed our whole approach will change as Jose won't force the team to sit deep. We would always have at least 6 players in the opposition half as all of them would be very confident in their defence spear headed by the great Godin. Our forwards will never have to track back again and waste their energy. Our midfielders won't have to sit deep and will have the freedom of expressing themselves offensively. Opposition strikers will be filled with fear just looking at the team sheet containing the likes of Godin. This signing will change everything just like it did when we signed Matic.
PS - All those crying out for a defender can replace the name of Godin with a defender of your choice in the above written post. Read it on a loop and rejoice at the thought of having a world class CB who will change the fortunes of our great club.

16 Nov 2018 16:58:34
I would rip my skin off for godin.

16 Nov 2018 19:08:01
I'd rip your skin off too for godin.

16 Nov 2018 22:13:31
Not every signing has to be long term. the here and now is very important too.

17 Nov 2018 00:39:00
Haha sweet sailor 😂.

17 Nov 2018 11:56:53
In. A. Heartbeat.

17 Nov 2018 13:33:24
Id say an experienced commanding centre back is a long term signing even if he is 32. We need a leader who can guide the likes of bailly Lindelof an tuanzebe into reaching potential.

18 Nov 2018 22:22:26
Easily get two more seasons out of him. Perfect signing, would be amazing influence for Bailey and Lindelof.
