Hope Ed doesn't mind me relaying this info, but on the European page, ED2 has said we are in for Jorginho and it could happen today.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 14:46:29
I can't find it in the European page.

{Ed002's Note - He has told you what it says.}

2.) 31 Jan 2018 15:00:42
Thanks Edoo2, it was my fault that i didn't see it. You, all, are the best and i am really happy that i read you and not twitter etc, we aprecciate what you are doing for us. Cheers from Greece.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet.

New deal for Jose. Not a bad January so far, hopefully more good news to come.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 18:15:48
birthday tomorrow nice little present for him.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 18:46:47
looking at it he's just signed a one year extension. hardly a long term deal!

3.) 25 Jan 2018 19:38:46
Not sure we have a great history of signing managers onto long-term contracts, even Fergie was on a one year rolling contract from 2004.



15 Sep 2017 19:48:47
Ed, just wondering if we have any interest in Dendoncker? We were linked with him in the summer and supposedly we touched base with his reps and I've seen some more links today. Thought he stood out for them last year when we played them, even over Tielemans, so just thought I'd enquire, many thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - There is long term interest from when JM was at Chelsea.}



18 Jul 2017 13:54:26
Ed, hope you don't mind me asking and ignore if you want, we all know that we have interest in Perisic and I've seen you say he is a target in other posts and that Inter had set a very reasonable price before the beginning of July. So my question is, what exactly is the hold up/ what is actually going on? Because I've just seen that he's flying out to China with the squad and surely United would of wanted it done by now, so it's not another smokescreen is it? I don't understand why we wouldn't of payed up by now if we did indeed want him so badly. Thanks in advance, any new info would be appreciated just to clear it up a bit.


{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement on price - it would have been much easier to have agreed this in June.}

1.) 18 Jul 2017 15:57:16
Ed 002 in addition to this, may I ask you that if persic is the only target for wing role? Because no other name is coming in front. Like at time of morata. It was belloti. For CDM we hear. MATIC, DIER OR FERNANDINHO. So any other transfer target for wings.?

{Ed002's Note - Perisic was second choice but is very much the preferred option. I previously provided a list - they could return again to look at that. I did not know about any interest in Fernandinho. Again, I have said about other options.}

2.) 18 Jul 2017 16:23:57
Do other Ed or fellow posters mind telling me who was other winger target.

{Ed004's Note - I can't remember either ATM}

3.) 18 Jul 2017 16:41:10

4.) 18 Jul 2017 16:45:12
Malcolm Filipe, Gelson Martins and Willian.

5.) 18 Jul 2017 17:17:28
Griezmann was the no1 target. That went south with am's ban. Perisic was 2nd choice and that is why he is now 1st choice. As mentioned above other options were Filipe, Martins and Willian.

6.) 18 Jul 2017 17:42:53
Emil forsberg!

7.) 18 Jul 2017 17:48:46
Willian is a good call. I wouldn't have been against that move.

8.) 18 Jul 2017 17:58:45
I tell you, if perisic signs, he will assist lukaku with so many goals. No nonsense winger. IMO much better than Willian.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 17:59:15
Thanks Ed.

10.) 18 Jul 2017 17:03:37
I was messaging a friend before who said Inter are asking for large bonuses/ add ons and that is holding the deal up majorly. I don't know how true this is of course but it may well be the case. I doubt ed002 will confirm as it is to do with money and we really don't know the ins and outs of such major deals.

With the player supposedly off to China for pre-season, I think Jose may ask Woodward to tie it up as quickly as possible. If not, I really do wonder if we could convince Sanchez to join us and convince Arsenal to sell to us. I know ed002 has said this is a no go at this moment in time. With the reported fee of around 40odd million plus bonuses, Sanchez, with one year left on his contract, could well go for around 15m more than Perisic. Are we missing a trick here by not trying? Of course, he could have no interest in joining us anyway.

11.) 18 Jul 2017 20:20:58
Id throw over the odds cash at a. sanchez but as u say its IF he would come to us in tbe first place.

He is definitely worth spending big on.



02 Jun 2017 11:24:22
Ed, I've read the posts and sorry to ask you another question regarding Griezmann, as I'm sure you're sick of them, like we all are, but you mention that he will stay as he want's to move to the new stadium and how the clause has no relevance to us, unless we pay over the odds. My question is, is this still a possibility we might do that (pay over the odds)? Or have we completely moved on for now? Thanks in advance.


{Ed004's Note - What's the point paying way over the odds if the player doesn't want to come though. If he has made his mind up we need to move on}

1.) 02 Jun 2017 14:29:32
Ed, I was more wondering if it is completely dead and we won't bother maybe towards the end of the summer or in the future.

{Ed004's Note - I think their appeal getting turned down has killed any chance of this deal happening}

2.) 02 Jun 2017 14:37:32
It's a shame, thought he would of been perfect for us. Something still doesn't seem to add up in all of this, but spose we just have to get someone who fits us just as well. Struggling to think of many, because if AG did come, he was probably going to play across the front three, not number 9 anyway. Also hope we don't panic and buy some players for the sake of it, I'd rather wait tbh, because it could impact our plans net year too.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 23:15:04
He needs better advisors I feel like he handled this transfer pretty badly, I don't know what has really gone on but if the "gossip" is true, to the average fan he looks like he mugged United, he going to get a decent pay rise, if it's true then I do hope United wash their hands clean of him and we don't have anymore interest in him (including next summer)

Hope all this gossip is a load of baloney, I have a feeling it is, we will really know what the reason by August the latest, can't really believe that he changed his mind because of the transfer ban.

4.) 03 Jun 2017 06:54:49
Glad he is not coming. not worth 85 million pounds. good player but not worth breaking the bank for him.

5.) 03 Jun 2017 10:21:12
X files, Is £85 Million really breaking the bank for United tho?

Why won't Mourinho try Sanchez on the right? I've been thinking this since we signed him, that it was more a "look at what we can do" signing, rather than one that was well planned or desperately needed, because as we all know, full backs and midfield are far more pressing, than another forward currently. Obviously I'm glad we signed him, but until we actually find a way to use him and everyone else, our attack is disjointed and Martial is not a right winger. Sanchez has played there for Udinese and Barca, so he can do it. I don't think we will see the best of him till we do. Obviously yesterday was a joke, but I don't think it's a coincidence that we were actually playing okay up until we signed him and had a settled attack. So Mourinho should try something different, because it is not working and our form is getting worse, which is worrying with a lot of big games coming up soon.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 15:55:18
Elvis, a sensible and accurate post.



05 Feb 2018 19:55:05
Question for you guys. Depending on how Lukaku does and how Spurs do in the next few seasons would you want us to move for Kane? I remember Ed saying in the skarkopod it could be a possibility in a few years, so would you take him or maybe someone else?


1.) 05 Feb 2018 20:13:46
I'd take him in a heartbeat. Best English striker since Shearer, and I think he'll go on to be one of the best. There's already not many better than him.

2.) 05 Feb 2018 21:40:41
It was interesting to listen to Rooney saying that players are judged on what they win. Which of course is true. He reckons Kane will get itchy feet if spurs don't win a trophy soon. ' goals oy take you so far you are judged on what you win, on your medal count ' makes sense to me. Harry Kane will move if he is not winning because inevitably players are judged on what they win.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 22:17:59
What a player. Really fantastic. He is something special.

4.) 05 Feb 2018 22:23:26
I'm with you here Stevie I would LOVE kane at united.

5.) 05 Feb 2018 23:05:30
Echo what has been said above. He is a fantastic player who is so deadly in front of goal. Rooney said tonight he reminds him of Ruud van nistelrooy and can’t argue with that. I think if spurs aren’t winning he will look to leave and we should do anything to sign him.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 06:30:52
It’s funny because just like Salah he doesn’t really look like a footballer yet give him the ball and he’s incredible. I think he will go on to a great career, my fear if he joined us is whether he would get any service. Lukaku is a goal machine but can’t seem to get the ball right now.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 08:01:05
Kane is a fantastic player anyone can see it.
If sold he will go for mega money and every top club would want him .

A yet he has won nothing not a single thing.

He will move because top players want to win things and get paid lots.

8.) 06 Feb 2018 10:36:47
Yep and that's how players are judged inn what they win.

9.) 06 Feb 2018 10:52:10
No it's not Ken.
Kane is judged by what he does on the football pitch .
This obsession with fancy names and belief that if you play for a big team it means your a great player is childish.
It's why auier was the best rb in the league in the summer .

Kane won nothing, yet is rightly judged as one of the best out there .
Maybe the best 9 since shearer who was an amazing player . Shearer Won 1 trophy in his entire career . But surely no one would be daft enough to judge him by that?

10.) 06 Feb 2018 11:06:20
If Madrid or any other team break the bank for Kane it will have nothing to do with what he has or hasn't won .
Won't come I to, it will be about what he can and can't do on the pitch .

11.) 06 Feb 2018 15:28:13
I will like to stick with Lukaku, Need to compare the amount of chances created for Kane and Lukaku and their conversion rate.
Lukaku won't be far behind him.



21 Dec 2017 18:04:44
Regardless of what happens in Jan and if we do actually sign any body, I'd go get TFM and Pereira back and start using Tuanzebe more too, just to freshen us up a bit For a good month or so, we have been flat and if we are honest, getting a bit lucky with the results, or just scraping through. Obviously last night was horrendous, but it's been coming hasn't it, so have to try something else, otherwise we will just be carrying on and it's getting a bit boring every week. Surely we can do better than we are currently. Btw I'm more on about performances, rather than where we are in the league or cups etc and I'm definitely not on Mourinho's back. Just want to be entertained and look forward to our games, like at the start of the season. Don't think it's too much to ask.


1.) 21 Dec 2017 21:05:24
It would be nice to see them 3 get a chance.



29 Aug 2017 13:05:25
Ed2, I won't ask now as I'm sure you're extremely busy with the end of the window fast approaching, but when everything is settled down, is it okay I ask something about United and Griezmann, just would like to know a few bits and bobs, thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 09:38:18
What's this question Elvis? Ha.



17 Aug 2017 13:30:58
Just thought I'd relay this info for anyone not on twitter etc, but Duncan Castles, who a lot seem to think has close ties with Jose, has just reported that we are weighing up a move for Lemar, after exploring deals for Ronaldo and Bale. Also says that we still want a champions league level left back and will sell Shaw to fund the deal if needs be. Don't shoot the messenger.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 14:07:48

2.) 17 Aug 2017 14:16:57
I can't see it happening but think it would be a good move an attacking winger who I'd imagine could comfortably slot in at lwb if we where to go with 3 at the back.

3.) 17 Aug 2017 15:08:41
Is he much of an upgrade on Martial?

4.) 17 Aug 2017 15:42:25
i think he would be a great fit if we get him. Very young, but has a physical side to his game so should not find it too hard in the premier league. Plus he is good at set pieces and we lack someone to take our indirect free kicks and corners.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 16:35:04
If we play 4231 we have four offensive positions. Currently we have Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, Lingard, Mata and Mkhitaryan for those 4 positions. Is 6 players for 4 roles really enough squad depth for a 50-60 game season?

Probably not, that's why I wouldn't be surprised if we saw another winger come in. Lemar looks a good option, glad he gave up on his singing career to focus on football. Maybe there is some justice in the world.

6.) 17 Aug 2017 16:42:17
I thought the new Man Utd way was to always hit the first defender from corners?

7.) 17 Aug 2017 17:03:43
New, we've been doing that since Giggs took them.

8.) 17 Aug 2017 17:48:45
I hear you Shappy, but the deal is probably only 50/ 50. Here all week.

9.) 17 Aug 2017 18:39:38
If there's any justice in the world we will sign him.

10.) 17 Aug 2017 19:54:12

Well played.

11.) 17 Aug 2017 20:43:30
Why thank Gds2 😁😁.

12.) 17 Aug 2017 21:16:41
Lol Shappy; that was a goodun'

Ed, I know you don’t like putting timescales on things and January is a difficult month to buy players etc, but would you say it’s more likely we will wait till summer now, rather than sign anyone this month just for the sake of it? I can’t see many of our top targets being available and we don’t seem close to any deal. Your opinion would be appreciated or any new info you’ve recently heard. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - No, I am sure something will happen in January if they can make it.}

First choice being Milinkovic Savic at Lazio, If I recall correctly.

Ed, I think it was in the summer you mentioned that Forsberg was someone we had looked at, could he be added to the list above or have we moved on from him now also? Thanks for the info anyway Ed and correct me if I'm wrong about Forsberg, memory's a little hazy.


{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have watched Forsberg on a number of occasions, as have Arsenal, but I am not aware of any approach to his club or to Cetinkaya, who also represents Lindelof.}

Definitely going to need a few midfielders, full back and like you say maybe Ozil will join. Getting Sanchez now will ease the burden in the summer, which will be a bit tricky due to the world cup and the earlier deadline day. Would be good if we could tie up another deal for the summer now though of course.

Couldn't agree more Ed, definitely think we are going in the right direction under Jose and like you said, we slipped so far under Moyes/ LVG, so it's going to more time than people think, despite spending a fortune. The squad is better, the unity looks good and with a few more signings over the next few windows, we will be right up there again I'm sure. Patience.

Rose was just an example Ed, but yer Alaba would be the dream. I like where we are with our squad though, only a few changes needed to really boost us and hopefully be successful these next few years.


{Ed004's Note - 2 maybe 3 signings and I would give us a chance against anyone in the world}
