Hi EDs,

Any truth in the Darmian to Juventus rumours?

Don't know about anyone else, but if he's good enough for them he's certainly good enough for us unless he really desires a move back to Italy.


{Ed002's Note - Yes - this is quite old news. Inter were also keen but since January Juventus have been planning on him.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 08:25:03
Thanks Ed very interesting. I suppose if, as you say, we are looking to Semedo too he will be surplus to requirements.

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric - he is not wanted.}

2.) 21 Jun 2017 09:26:41
Darmian isn't suited to the EPL. He offers very little going forward and is very slow. Serie A is much more suited to his style of play.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 09:55:45
Tend to agree with you Wazza. Good move for Darmian though as he gets a return to Turin and to a great club.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 01:42:53
While I'm fine with darmian moving on, I hope it doesn't blur the fact that he was a decent player for us. Strong defensively, perhaps a little too cautious going forward, but he always put in a good shift, willing to play on either flank, and was by no means a failure at united. If he was willing to be a role player behind legit elite fbs, I'd be fine keeping him. If he does move on, I for one will have positive memories and gratitude to the player. He's done the united shirt proud.

Hi all. Amy info on where Young may be off to please?


{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

1.) 30 Jan 2017 11:20:36
"I am waiting for January 31 to know what is going on. I am not happy if he leaves, but he is the only player that I am informed has a possibility of leaving.

"That is why he didn't play and I gave chances to other people, because I don't know if he is going to stay. If I could choose, definitely yes he would stay with us. "jose on young

2.) 30 Jan 2017 15:57:22
I think he might go to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 19:57:09
back to watford maybe



05 Jan 2017 18:44:13
Whispers that Memphis is off to Nice!


1.) 05 Jan 2017 20:19:49
That would be nice for him!

{Ed025's Note - dont give up the day job brad.. :)

2.) 05 Jan 2017 23:29:16
That's a Lille bit of a corny joke Brad. I hope the little Nancy boy does well though, wherever he goes. I don't want Toulouse him because he's as fierce as a Lyon and it Angers me when people slag him off - it's Bordeaux-line rude. He Caen do well if given the chance.

I'll get my Monacoat.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 06:57:31
Magnificent rwwd 😂

{Ed025's Note - very clever...he could be an evertonian if he keeps that up deano.. :)

4.) 06 Jan 2017 09:57:33
hahaha round of applause RWWD made me laugh :-)

5.) 06 Jan 2017 11:13:49
Really takes the biscuit

{Ed025's Note - good stuff wallace..

6.) 06 Jan 2017 11:40:15
RWWD I like that you are Sochaux he can succeed, he's a good player and could be as good as Sedan if he fulfills his potential if i Marseille so myself

{Ed025's Note - are you sure your not scousers kenny?, great wit from the guys on here.. :)

7.) 07 Jan 2017 12:36:43
Thanks Eric79 for keeping us aBREST of the latest developments re. Memphis



09 Oct 2016 01:07:06
Bakayoko of Monaco and Coleman at Everton reportedly the next two in. Bye bye Darmian.


1.) 09 Oct 2016 08:12:47
Wonder where TFM is supposed to break through and play if we buy players for the positions he plays in.

2.) 09 Oct 2016 09:08:24
Good point. Still, I'd like to see us go for Coleman!

3.) 16 Oct 2016 10:23:09

I don't see TFM at right back, more centre midfield but he has to show he is good enough.



10 Aug 2016 18:03:36
Sunderland keen to become Man Utd reserves. They have tabled bids for Fellaini (accepted) and Januzaj. I believe the Fellaini move is a transfer and Adnan a loan.


1.) 10 Aug 2016 18:37:41
I know a lot not me but a lot want Felliani sold but its not happening yes good by Adnan but the wig will be Pogbas partner and rightly so he can play a bit is ruthless towards the opposition defends and attacks corners and set pieces and always gives it his all Jose thinks this so he safe even if a big offer comes in i could be wrong but i don't get it wrong very often lol.

{Ed041's Note - I'd be gobsmacked if Fellani is pogba's CM partner.

2.) 10 Aug 2016 18:53:33
you will be gobsmacked then ed Jose has defended Felliani in interviews and likes his all round game i beleave he is looking at out muscling teams and they don't come much bigger stronger and rougher than the wig.

{Ed041's Note - I don't think I will at all, I think you will see Carrick, Hererra and Spyder play far more games than Fellani.

3.) 10 Aug 2016 20:25:01
Ed Jose has said alread the wig will be very important for the first team he defended the back pass for Vardy stating the amount of water that slowed the ball as the thing at fault he has played him with carrick and i'm shore he will go for out powering teams ie the wig i know people like to use Felliani as our scapegoat but Jose as much as plenty don't like the idea will use him much more than the others.

{Ed041's Note - yes he is important the squad is.

All this talk of style of play etc has echoed what's been on my mind for a very long time.

I've had a season ticket for a very long time at Utd, and enjoy the odd away game too for fun and atmosphere when I can avoid morons fighting etc.

However, it's all just extremely dull going to Utd and has been for a long time. It's a chore not a joy. Our style is no fun to watch, and I don't like the way the game has gone. I don't relate to the players or the owners of the club, and I am starting to resent giving them my money. Sanchez earns 5 times more Than me in a week than I can in a good year.

I can't recall a Utd match I've come out of breathless and buzzing from in a long time. I'll go to the Chelsea match this weekend and will come out after a 0-0 deflated, or indeed we might win 1-0 and pretend it was a "great win".

Don't get me wrong, it's not just our club it's all of them. And don't get me started on international football as that died years ago.

I'll always love Utd, and always have this romantic notion in my heart of what the club stood for. Sadly, today's reality is not the same and I have come to the conclusion I'd rather invest my time and money into my growing family rather than Woodward's coffers and TV executives etc. I'll still go to some games, but frankly don't enjoy it anymore. This feeling started during Sir Alex's reign before anybody thinks it's since he left.

All the best,
A Sad but also relived Eric.




07 Jan 2018 10:32:11
Hi eds and posters,

I'm a little behind the times but with a lot of our players in the final year of their contracts, I'm a bit lost on who has signed and who we have triggered a one year extension on. The players I am referring to notably are Shaw, Mata, Herrera, Young and Blind. Fellaini i know is ongoing.

Can anyone help? Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - One for Syd.}

1.) 07 Jan 2018 12:28:24
I think I read that Shaw Mata Herrera and blind have been signed on for another year .
Young wants a two year deal .
And fellaini could be joining up with Jose at PSG.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 15:20:40
Ooooh. Controversial, jred :)

3.) 07 Jan 2018 16:32:56
All including young its reported have had the 1 year extention option triggered by the club all run till 30 June 2019.
Fellaini had his triggered last year and his runs till 30th June 2018. He is free to sign a pre contract with non epl sides to move as a free agent next July. I july he is free to talk to all clubs in the epl. I think Turkey is the most roumered destination for him if jose can't convince him to stay. But he has only started 3 league games this year so it's likely he sees his future elsewhere.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 17:20:05
Fellaini been Injured for a large part of the season.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 17:54:14
Either way he needs to go.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 18:01:51
Even if the manager wants him?

7.) 07 Jan 2018 18:50:26
Would rather he stay mort.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 19:32:22
Great thanks chaps. Happy for Fellaini to go as will force our hand to replace him with better.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 21:26:30
If he wants to go jred we can't force him to stay.



28 Dec 2017 11:32:12
Completely silly post coming up but here is my January transfer dealings I'd like to see although unlikely to happen:

Darmian, Rojo, Blind, Fellaini (clearly wants out so sell him on)

Evans, Rose, Özil or Barkley (given the prices quoted we'd be mad not to go for one now with their contracts coming to an end), TFM and Pereira recalled, Tanuzebe to replace Darmian, Goretzka

Ps why not give Martial or Rashford a go up top to give Lukaku a rest?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 12:15:52
Isn't it to much of movement for January window?

2.) 28 Dec 2017 12:11:45
Would only take Ozil out of them. Maybe Goretzka. Aim higher than Evans, Rose injury prone, don't rate Barkley.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 12:33:38
Evans as in Jonny Evans?

4.) 28 Dec 2017 14:56:30
Absolutely bang on the money eric79, that was a silly post.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 21:18:10
Thank you. I’m here all week.

Although selling Evans and replacing him with Rojo was pure stupidity.



21 Dec 2017 10:03:04
Smmes ozil is our likely new
Number 10 at some point, but what about a punt on Barkley? Strong, creative and can score. Better than Miki anyway.


1.) 21 Dec 2017 10:17:32
He has a terrible attitude to training and is very unprofessional apparently he makes Shaw look like a saint. I can't see him and Jose getting on very well.

2.) 21 Dec 2017 12:22:11
A marriage made in heaven.



13 Dec 2017 22:33:08
Great to see Angel Gomes has signed his first professional deal with the club. Work hard, stay grounded and he could be the real deal.


1.) 13 Dec 2017 23:06:53
I would like to see him get a few first team appearances this season. He is really talented. Would also like Pereira back from loan.

2.) 13 Dec 2017 23:12:13
Thats very good news by the looks of it.

3.) 14 Dec 2017 13:52:59

As per the original post the player needs to stay grounded and the fans need to not expect too much too soon. He is a child and I would be surprised if he makes any appearances this season.

4.) 14 Dec 2017 17:02:21
Looking at the build of the lad I think there is a tricky issue. He is clearly too talented for youth football and for him to progress he needs to be playing a higher standard of football week in week out. However a lad his size would be kicked into oblivion in the EPL let alone the lower tiers of English football.

I think we need to consider sending him on loan to a European side where the game is less physical but of a higher standard than youth football. Portugal would be a good option or maybe Belgium.

5.) 15 Dec 2017 01:29:26
Messi should be his inspiration.

I think pre-window if you had told any of us (posters, eds, any experts) that we would have shined Sanchez we would have been highly sceptical.

It’s happened and all we need for now. Great signing.

We have replaced a Carrick with Matic. We need a genuine box to box midfielder who wants to defend and support attack to release the shackles on Pogba.

Competent right beck BFB? Darmian plays for Italy. The mastersof defending.

If We keep the Shaw we have seen the way 4/ 5 matches we have a player on our hands. Remains to be seen. Don’t see what’s wrong with keeping Darmian to fill in on both sides as and when (unless he wants to leave to play regular football) . Don’t forget Young has been excellent too this season. If TFM comes back next season he can provide good cover at right back.

Midfield is where we need some serious re-inforcements now we have Sanchez coming.

Not a huge fan of mocking attendances to be honest. Football is so expensive these days for many people that they can no longer afford to go which is the saddest part of it all.

Still as mentioned, their keepers are terrible, as are both full back positions and centres halves. Have to build from the back and Liverpool are miles away from that solid foundation.
