Hello ed2

Sorry to borher you but seen a report on the internet so thought to ask you on these players.

Firstly, is Romero likely to leave? If yes which sidees are interested? Read Boca juniors are interested.

Secondly Is Manolas likely to leave and are we really interested? On the article I read it said we and Arsenal are seriously intersted.



{Ed002's Note - Sergio Romero might look to leave in the summer but it may depend on what happens with De Gea. Boca wanted a loan but he had no interest in that - if he moves he will look to move back to Italy.

Yes Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Manolas but it is Inter who will push very hard for a deal in the summer.}

Ed2 are we looking at any keepers then as there seems to be a chance of one of pur keepers to be leaving or is J. Pereira likely to be considered as good enough prosprect ( I know we still have Johnstone but will he make it here) .

Also ed on the sharkopod you said Rojo is still considered as not dependable and it will be tough for Jones to make it past the summer window as a Utd player. So, has the opinion on them changed with their recent form or still the same? Also who is our primary cb target now as Gimenez is unlikely (or impossible)?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Manchester United will be trrying to understand where they are with goalkeepers going forward. They will look to hold on to De Gea but Romero will want to move for game time. (b) Manchester United will look for a different first choice centre back in the summer so Rojo and Jones will slide down the list and possibly out. (c) Lindelof remains very much the wanted player.}

Thank you Ed

Thanks ed.

Hi eds
Recently when i asked on the madrid site about the players they are interested in bringing, ed2 replied that De Gea is of interest to them so, man utd must be aware of that and thus surely we are looking at keepers to replace ddg if he decides to leave so, ed2 do you know of any keepers we are actively looking at or was Romero brought in to replace ddg.


{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that.}

Just saw the news that Ed Woodward's house in Cheshire was attacked by a bunch of lunatics and criminals, who are so called "fans" of Man Utd. I hope they are caught and punished severely by the law enforcers there.

I feel disgusted and ashamed to say that I share the same community, as a Man It's supporter as them. In all these years since SAF's retirement we have seen many lows and few highs but this has been the lowest point by quite a huge margin.

Ashamed and speechless. Bunch of entitled uneducated idiots our fanbase is becoming and it's making it harder for us to get better at fight for the status of the top dogs in European football.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE news and I would like to offer my sympathies and support to Mr. Woodward.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 02:46:32
Well said Deeps. Sad day.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 03:32:07
Stupid idiots, This will do more harm than good for the protests against glazers and Woodward, won't be surprised if ashton and co. use this as a tool to slamm the protests and songs and paint Woodward as some sort of a martyr.

Also what's with the fans, its either everything's peachy or we are we are burning down houses, there is a middle ground folks.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 05:44:25
Football brings out the worst in people, disgraceful behaviour. Makes United fans and football fans in general look like thugs.

4.) 29 Jan 2020 07:37:52
Totally agree Deeps, we are frustrated and I have done my own share of ranting on here, but personal criminal attacks are disgusting and these people are not wanted as United fans.

5.) 29 Jan 2020 08:20:45
fair enough protest, but do it in the right way.

6.) 29 Jan 2020 11:05:59
They aren’t fans, they are scum. I hope the police can identify as many as possible.

7.) 29 Jan 2020 12:51:57
I am not sure this is so cut and dried. There’s a lot that doesn’t added.

I’m sure it was known about and let to happen or worse.

For the folks wondering about the "clauses (excluding Santa), this is it as per the legendary ed2

Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax) .

There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a release clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties (clubs) are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that football Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes.

These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club in the same country does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country, the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid and may demand a higher figure.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another and about the legal proximity of the buying side.

We have had an upturn in fortune and allround a feel good factor is there surrounding us although the tougher tests are yet to come.
All the players have performed better than they had before Ole took over. But for me the biggest takeaway from these past 3 games is it has brought our old friend Chris (CTR) back to this page. One of the more frequent poster when I first started visiting the site but less and less posts with time. Good to have you back Chris.

Hello everyone, so it's derby day today. Hope we can show that man utd still has life in them and are a credible threat to all.

I am in a dilemma myself. Should I join the live chat here or not. That last few games I joined, we won them all so, I was thinking of joining but then on Wednesday I didn't join (was too late in the night so fell asleep) and we went on to win the game. so now I can't decide whether I should continue to join the chat or not on match days.

Help guys.


{Ed025's Note - i have this strange feeling that united winning has very little to do with you going on live chat deependra, but you are very welcome to participate mate, i dont hold out much hope for utd today although i said the same about the juve game..

1.) 11 Nov 2018 16:14:26
how does one join the live chat? There used to be a hyperlink top of the page but i’ve not seen it ages, assumed the chat had stopped until i seen this post.

{Ed033's Note - Try opening your eyes and look for where it says, "The real time Manchester United Live Chat page will be open...".

No 'Review of the day today ed1?


{Ed001's Note - no sorry mate, I couldn't scrape enough news together for it and never noticed the time early enough to pad it out with some anecdotes or something before the autolink would generate. I have set a daily alarm now to give me a warning in time to put in some filler so it shouldn't happen again.}

No problem ed.

{Ed001's Note - it should be back as normal tomorrow.}

"Maguire is great" Giggsy? What is he great at? Not defending that I am sure. What is he great at other than heading a ball. Lindelof is a better player overall in my view. Maguire is decent but he isn't half the player media is making him out to be

But it all personal opinion though and judging by my track record I am likely in the wrong.

But how can we ignore his woeful injury record when looking at Bale along with his not so good season last term and his astronomical wages will be a very big pain in the backside for whoever tries to sign him. Although as a club we make a lot of money from revenue but still we are maxed out in terms of wages (ffp), and unlike transfer fees you can't just increase it enormously, I think you can only have an increment of around 5-10% (not sure on the exact figure) from the previous ffp year/ cycle. So I can see a lot of cons at pursuing Bale.

Gds I think people brought up need/ want for RWs and CMs because the op said he would be content with AWB, decent CB and Bruno Fernandes. I too would still want a RW and hopefully another CM on top of them.

Also Weggy do you really want us to go for Bale in "an ideal world"? For me he would only be a last gasp option if only we can't get anyone decent through the door and even then only on a loan without an obligation to buy. I think we shouldn't consider signing Bale at this stage, in an ideal world and rather go for other players like Sancho ( who you did mention) or Chiesa, etc.

Rosspique FB is a really demanding position in the modern game so having 2 good options wouldn't be bad in my opinion if we sign AWB. Also both AWB and Dakota are versatile enough and can provide cover in other positions. Also I think we being homegrown works in favour of AWB and is one of the reasons we are showing serious interest in bringing him here.

I agree with Ed's assessment of Wan-Bissaka. He has been really good defensively, arguably the best fb in the league defensively. And I don't think his offensive game can be questioned too much because as Ed4 stated, Palace aren't the most attacking team and Even if AWB was given the freedom to attack, he would be crossing towards Benteke, the most immobile forward in the league. He would produce better results crossing at a Lamppost than Benteke.

Even then for me personally, if we sign AWB and he turns into one of the best fb defensively but is only "average" in attack, I would gladly take it.


{Ed004's Note - I would argue he is the best fullback defensively. Only fullbacks I would have over him are Robertson and Trent due to their attacking threats.}

Completely agreed ed1. The worst decision Ed wayward has made in my view is cancelling the transfer plans in the winter window before LVGs sacking. We were meant to have a meeting with Atleti with regards to Saul. For me Saul is the best all round CM in the world. If not for Kante, Saul would be the best midfielder IMO.

"creative player capable of playing either from the right or in the No.10 or maybe even slightly deeper" seems like the description about Mr. Bruno Fernandes Shappy.

Although Odegaard is one of the few players on an upward trajectory instead of downward like most of the other players rumoured to be available for a swap deal I think he might be very similar to Bruno in the positions he takes up but I must admit I haven't seen too much of him to be dismissive of him. Maybe both Odegaard and Bruno can play either side of a DM.

Maybe ed001 can help. Do we have a profile on him, they are very helpful in understanding a player.

It seems you rate Best really highly ed1. Most people only mention Pele and Maradona when debating greatest players.
I personally believe Ronaldo (Brazilian) would have been considered the greatest if not for his injuries myself. Also I am of the opinion that CR7's personality rubs people the wrong way and so he gets more detractors, especially in the mainstream media.


{Ed001's Note - could you imagine how many goals the real Ronaldo would score if he had a proper fitness regime??
Best was a wonderful player mate, it is only because he played for himself too much that he is not as good as Pele and Maradona.
As for Cristiano, I agree. It is the strutting and the preening that annoys people.}

Great read as always Tris.
Which side of the Messing/ Ronaldo debate are you on? I think someone without direct connection to the player can be more balanced and neutral in their opinion.


{Ed001's Note - I think it depends on which point of their career you are talking about. Overall I don't think there is a lot of difference, they are just different types of players so what type you prefer is better to you. When Messi pressed, I preferred him, now he doesn't I prefer Ronaldo.}

No Koke or Fabian Ruiz in the list ed1? Or are they better in another role?


{Ed001's Note - Koke just missed out and Ruiz needed another season at this level.}

I thought Carlo was getting paid more than the list suggests. I was of the impression that he was more like in the top 5 highest paid manager.


{Ed001's Note - so was I Deep. He was said to be in the top 3, but these lists are estimates and I am not sure how much is just pure salary and if they include anything like sponsorship etc.}
