Hi Eds is there any truth in RM now willing to meet our asking price of £70m for DDG? Are we really willing to let DDG go at that price or even let him go at all?
Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Put aside any thoughts about money, but REal Madrid have three goalkeepers in mind as replacements for Keylor Navas, one of which is De Gea. PSG also have De Gea on their list of goalkeepers they are looking to.}

1.) 21 Nov 2017 14:01:36
In the world where 16 year and 18 year old kids go for 40 mn and 160 mn respectively the best keeper in the world should be going for a couple hundred million at the least or Madrid can do one.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 15:11:40
Unfortunatly CAN its not as simple as that. If he has 2 years on his contract and wants to go he holds all the cards or most of them anyway. If he won't sign a new deal then he has to be sold really.

I agree with you that the price is too low but with only 2 years left on his contract it diminishes our ability to negotiate from a position of strength. If he had 4 or 5 years left then you can charge what you demand or send them packing.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 14:58:57
Thanks vm Ed002 for the response. Most appreciated.
I do hope we don’t sell DDG. Hope too that DDG will stay with us for a while.

{Ed002's Note - Players come and go 666Red.}

4.) 21 Nov 2017 15:58:44
Thanks again for response Ed.
Who do you then think would take over DDG when he leaves? Do you think we will buy a new GK or promote within pls? Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United will bring in a replacement for De Gea when he goes. I avoided this in the Sharkopod as Real Madrid have three possible options in mind and until we see what is intended. Options will be similar to the the summer when it was thought he was leaving save for Ederson - who was always moving to Manchester City in any case. Jan Oblak and Samir Handanovic would almost certainly be considerations.}

5.) 21 Nov 2017 18:19:13
Many thanks 🙏 Ed. Good rest of the week.

6.) 22 Nov 2017 13:40:01
Ed002, are RM considering De Gea, Courtois and Lloris?

{Ed002's Note - No, try the Real Madrid page.}



07 Oct 2017 09:48:30
Eds could you confirm if we are really going for Emre Can? I'd be really surprised if we are.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 07 Oct 2017 21:50:19
can-'t be true, Most Pool supporters i talk to would love to see the back of him, not United pedigree.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 22:51:48
He is a very talented midfielder that has been messed around with his playing position.

3.) 08 Oct 2017 09:40:00
He came over here highly regarded and ultimately has disappointed.

4.) 08 Oct 2017 03:46:40
Thanks Ed002.

5.) 13 Oct 2017 09:51:16
Most pool supporters would love to see the back of him? You must be talking to some ****ed up fans then. I think most pool fans would like to see him sign a new contract.



24 Sep 2017 06:02:15
Read that RM offering Bale to us so they can pursue Greaseman. Now I am not sure if we should go for any of them. I'd rather we save the money and buy Dyabala ( another report) .
Dyabala will suit us better and we should still focus on getting another couple of guys for defense and wings given that Shaw is still not up to par. Just in case Shaw doesn't make it for whatever the reason.
With the above I am quite sure Jose will be able to deliver big time as what he said (3 seasons) and hopefully we can launch challenges for a treble?
What'd you guys think?


1.) 24 Sep 2017 06:23:13
Also interesting to see what happens when Ozil runs out his contract. Will he join us?
What're your thoughts? Eds great to hear your take on these pls.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what is happening with Griezmann now, he was only staying because they couldn't get Costa, so you would have to think he will go. United are still interested. However I don't know of any deal being in the offing.

I expect Oezil to leave England personally, it doesn't matter what he does here the media are on his case about laziness. At one point last season, a stats company put out the stats which showed he covered more ground than every one else on the Arsenal team and more ground than most players in the Prem. The media turned it into a joke, when they even bothered to acknowledge it at all. They mostly ignored it so they could continue banging the drum about his laziness. He would have to be mad to stay in England with the media who have no interest in truth. He can go back to Germany or Spain, where he is a massive hero, or go to Italy, where they would love him.}

2.) 24 Sep 2017 07:45:47
Insightful Ed001. Most appreciated with many thanks.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

3.) 24 Sep 2017 12:04:12
Dybala is a player I'd love to see playing 10 for us! He's got 10 goals in 5 games for Juve.

{Ed004's Note - Dybala would be a fantastic signing however I think he is destined for one of the Spanish sides}

4.) 24 Sep 2017 13:10:15
We'll have to go get Dele Alli instead then Ed.

{Ed004's Note - I think Alli is a bit overrated and not worth what Spurs would charge us}

5.) 24 Sep 2017 13:10:22
Id much prefer Dybala over Bale ir Griezmann. That said i'd take Ozil over those two as well.

6.) 24 Sep 2017 13:49:41
Ed001 amazing that anybody could label Oezil lazy. He id's always I the mice always showing for the ball. He breaks into the box well. Just because a player isn't flying into tackles every 2 mins doesn't mean he is lazy. I think he is a superb player technically excellent and tactically very astute. Not sure there is any truth in the reports of him wanting to go to united but it wouldn't shock me. I can see a couple of players looking to exit united in jan in search of games to make world cup squads and I'm sure there are a couole at united that would interest wenger so stranger things have happened.

{Ed001's Note - the problem with the English media is that they will look to drag down anyone. The guy was playing well so they couldn't criticise his ability, instead they had to pick at his workrate because it seems only players flying into 50/50s every few seconds are seen to be trying. It is incredible, he tracks back 50 yards in a game and the commentator completely ignores it, but they make a point of every moment he is not racing back 80 yards to throw himself into a tackle! They should be trying to see a balanced picture and look at what he does bring to the team as well as what he doesn't.}

7.) 24 Sep 2017 14:06:24
True ed. I thunk he is a class act. He does seem a little stale or de-motivated at aresenal.

{Ed001's Note - the whole team do at times look stale and demotivated.}

8.) 24 Sep 2017 14:40:59
that would be a "dirty move" if Griezmann moves from Atletico to Real Madrid.

9.) 25 Sep 2017 18:48:55
Won the treble last season 666red.

10.) 27 Sep 2017 22:26:33
Was always disappointed we didn't get Ozil when he went to Madrid, and when he went to Arsenal. Class act.

{Ed007's Note - I was the same, Stevie. I've always liked Ozil and the Arsenal move was never going to work imo.}



19 Apr 2017 03:11:09
DDG going to RM for £70m. Nice biz by Jose. Now to spend the money on a strong CB and 1-2 key attackers and maybe another midfielder. Looking good.


1.) 19 Apr 2017 05:20:55
where did you hear that?

2.) 19 Apr 2017 08:42:52
666 if that's true I'd of thought a replacement keeper would be highest on the list. While it's still a record fee for a keeper I would not be happy. We can't buy better than ddg. Amd whomever we buy is going to cost at least half of that fee.

3.) 19 Apr 2017 09:01:23
We have Romero and he is not bad to begin with. I am also not happy Ken as DDG is the best in the world ATM but with this kind of money we should let go as it is more important to build a strong defense line. Besides we all know DDG will go RM one day.
So instead of looking at the downside I feel the upside is we have a decent GK in Romero but gives us the money to buy key players we really need in various departments.

4.) 19 Apr 2017 10:13:52
we have money! pretty sure we wouldn't need to sell to buy.

5.) 19 Apr 2017 10:15:16
I hope DDG does not leave but the expectation is that he will. The money we will get due to his contract extension will be sizable but I would be looking to invest in the best available option out there and If that means paying the same amount then so be it.
Oblak is highly rated and I like the fact he has been at Athletico. Schmeichel would be the current PL keeper I would go for if Jose wanted PL experience. Throw in the Inter keeper and you can see that there are options.
Love DDG but everyone can be replaced.

6.) 19 Apr 2017 11:43:10
Yeah am sad if he goes. But he gave good service and if good money comes back we should let him have his freedom.
If we can build a solid defense we can do with an above average gk so I am not too worried. Obviously comforting to have a great GK but if our defense is great then there ain't much work for the GK😂😂.

7.) 19 Apr 2017 14:15:22
I very much doubt Jose was involved on agreeing a sale price.

8.) 19 Apr 2017 15:11:05
A great keeper can make up for average centre backs not the other way around.

9.) 19 Apr 2017 17:11:25
Yea great business by Jose, forget the tactics, he's sorting out the finances now.

10.) 20 Apr 2017 11:03:56
Sell the best keeper in the world and don't replace him, good business that.

18 Feb 2018 04:16:59
Just some time back quite a few people were slagging off Lukaku. However now I hear a lot of him playing well - able to hold ball and attack and score. Such is what is needed for "new" players to get used to the system and players around him. They need to acclimatize to different players and different strategies. Sometimes different structure is adopted against different teams. You might get it right and you might get it wrong. It's like gambling with different permutations. Anyway you guys know what I mean.
I believe the likes of Pogba and Sanchez are finding how to play and complement with each other. We have Carrick retiring and Matic slowing a little (age related) . So we need replace one soon and Build that area again. I believe the likes of Rash and Martial should adapt to whichever wings as they are young and should not be rigid. They will become valuable if they become versatile. Rash and Martial already have sound partnership with Lukaku and Sanchez can add to that so our attack front is solid. Just need to click and score.
I am still very concern about defense and whilst Shaw is slowly but surely stepping up I think we need spend and buy 1-2 for defense to beef up. Valencia and Young should now slowly become backups.
Just in front we strongly need a leader and as Beast said in chatroom which I agree we need a Vidal (at least short team) till hopefully we can identify a long term solution or grow Pogba into it in future and let Mctominay take over Pogba's role in say 3-5 yrs time.
I am sure there will be quite a few poster disagreeing with me but I just think with my littlest of football knowledge this could be a way forward? Welcome comments and rebuttals.


1.) 18 Feb 2018 07:54:54
I like Rom but I’m not yet sure just how good he is or can be. He needs far better service than he has been getting but yesterday shiwed just what impact he can have. I think we have quite a few more players to worry about than Rom right now!

2.) 18 Feb 2018 08:17:52
On lukaku Tony I heard yesterday that he is only 3 goals off joining the prem league 100 club something that he will achieve in the coming weeks I'm sure. Harry Kane who imo and many others think is currently the best in the world in that position joined that 100 club a couple of weeks ago .

I think lukaku can be whatever he wants to be he is driven focussed and a hard worker with a fantastic goal record in this country I'm very happy he joined us and Chelsea got morata.

3.) 18 Feb 2018 09:19:41
Me too Dean, but it does feel like this season is one of waiting for people to deliver to their potential. With the right support he will be devastating.

4.) 18 Feb 2018 15:02:46
I agree wholeheartedly with that Tony there have been way too many games this season where he has looked isolated yet he still seems to make something happen.

I'm very happy with him .



01 Feb 2018 02:48:30
So funny looking at sports headlines.
Spurs won 2-0 against ManUtd.
But Chelsea losing 3 to nothing is a smaller news. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
What can I say about the media? Just confirmed my view that they are just pure anti ManUtd or we are really a very big club or news attraction 🤣🤣🤣.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 09:59:19
Maybe opposition Spurs who also carries some weight. Surely Spurs VS Manchester United is a big game compared to Chelsea ones.



30 Jan 2018 17:47:03
Just finished watching the classic match against Spurs PL 08/ 09. We came back from 0-2 down to win 5-2.
Just awesome with Scholes, Evra, Carrick, Tevez playing and Rooney and Ronaldo scoring 2 each and Berbatov 1. We had Vidic and Fer - 2 pillars of solid defense. Tevez was like non stop pressing and Rooney had blistering pace! Goosebumps watching the game. What a game. No mercy ☺️☺️
The irony was Bale was on the bench and came on in last 10 mins of game 🤣🤣. Sure was a decent team but we were just a different class. Great classic game to watch and commentators were then anti ManUtd and still are 🤣🤣🤣.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 20:15:29
Try the one where we were 3-0 down at half time and came back to win 5-3 that was classic as well.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 20:54:56
One of Veron’s finest hours FZZ, an incredible comeback. Also when Beckham was at his peak, a truly remarkable performance.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 15:59:35
Think SAF said that was one of his favourite games 😆😆.



30 Jan 2018 12:17:33
Read that Redknapp "advising" Rashford to leave ManUtd.
I don't know if this Dumbnapp is advising Or disrupting Rashford mind. I don't think I'd agree as ManUtd will provide the platform for Rashford to become a world class player. He is so young and it's the best chance to learn and improve himself. He should not try to get ahead of himself. He should learn from Ronaldo's route to world class stature - learn and practise more.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 13:18:53
Deluded Redknapp, hasn't Rashford made the most appearances in the top 5 leagues in Europe this season? Started more games this season than anyone else bar De Gea and Lukaku.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 13:31:15
Redknapp is a failed manager whom I would trust to arrange a p. s up in a brewery . Always likes to have his name in the papers and this is just a desperate attempt to try and stay relavent.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 13:56:13
Player who has gone into oblivion but trying to get attention. Sad Dumbknapp 😔 😔😔.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 14:38:42
Which deluded Redknapp are we talking about here?

5.) 30 Jan 2018 15:18:37
Think Jr Redknapp edges it Celtic😂.



23 Jan 2018 09:53:46
Watching the goal against Burnley which started from Lukaku ending by Martial and can't help being excited about Sanchez helping the attack. Lukaku and Sanchez will be very strong in holding and attacking with Martial getting stronger in finishing. Eternal those 3, I think we will have a very potent attack. Pogba and Matic strongly supporting the attack and well, Lingard too. And we still have a few strong options like Rashford, Herrera and McTom on the bench.
Hopefully in the summer we beef up even more with a couple of defenders and with Baily fit and Jones we should be a force to be reckoned with next season.
For the rest of his season we should really start focusing on teamwork and various combinations.


1.) 23 Jan 2018 10:40:59
We will Probably win something this season . We are strong in all areas and don't concede many goals could well be Champions League if we get a good draw if we beat Sevilla 😆😆.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 10:52:35
Yes BFRO I am hopeful of us winning something this season but don’t want to raise to high hopes 😉.
However I am quite optimistic about next season should we add a couple of players for defense ie RB and CB. I am also hopeful Shaw will come good as well as a couple of players getting into the senior team. That would really show us Jose is building the team well and giving younger ones playing opportunities. Very optimistic of next season.

3.) 23 Jan 2018 11:20:28
I would definitely strengthen the midfield area. Maybe the midfielder from Lazio, Milinkovic-Savic who looks a real all round player. He tackles, dribbles and can assist and would probably chip in with a few goals and he is only 22.

4.) 23 Jan 2018 13:36:36
You can’t say next year will be our year, it’s already copyrighted!

5.) 23 Jan 2018 14:04:02
🤣🤣🤣 Stringer and welcome back from the wilderness.
You’ve been busy I notice? 😂.

6.) 23 Jan 2018 12:14:42
ED02 has mentioned that SMS is one of the CM's that we are looking at, but he has a lot of clubs looking at him at the minute. I can't see Lazio selling in Jan so this will be one for the summer but if we could get him that would be a massive signing.

Interesting piece on Hawkeye re the VAR. Just shows the inefficiency of people using the system. Even though if you have a world class system and operated by idiots, the results will still be idiotic. What a bloody joke.
They took a corner with the ball not even on the right spot but nobody picked up. If that resulted in a goal against ManUtd would that have been disallowed. Not enough cameras to monitor and worse, inefficient officials monitoring the unmonitored system at the wrong time. Bloody joke 🤣🤣🤣.
