That Dias looks a very composed and tidy player. Hope our interest is serious because in today’s day and age, £50m could be a shrewd signing.


1.) 09 Jun 2019 21:57:20
He looks a player, although I think he might take a year to settle a bit like Lindelof. He doesn't look the strongest and will need to be stronger in the EPL. But he has great technique, wonderful reading of the game and a bit of bite in him.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 22:43:43
He looks made for the Premier League to me fella’s, would me more than happy if we could bring him in, Bruno Fernandez was also impressive tonight. Could do a lot worse than aiming to sign both up.

3.) 09 Jun 2019 23:15:41
Spot on lads. I have been a bit concerned about de ligt when he is against pace which is why I’ve not been fully sold on the idea of joining. I know there is no chance, but I do think defensively he’s not the best. Great on the ball and he has the potential to be a great player. But first and foremost I want my cbs to be able to defence.

Dias looks like a good defender and keeps things simple. If there is a chance to sign him I’d be all over it. Alderweireld is another, koulibaly is too expensive and perhaps Milenkovic. Never been the biggest Maguire fan but he is an improvement.

Impressed with Bruno tonight, hope we sign him. The Portuguese team had really quality on the ball, something the Dutch perhaps lacked. Bernardo, Ronaldo and Bruno are all players with equisite technique. That was the difference for me. Bernardo is an absolute gem of a player. Combines talent with sheer work rate and industry. City have a great player on their hands. Thoroughly jealous.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 12:26:58
Bernardo Silva is absolutely class, I'm surprised how strong he is for such a small player.

Hopefully CR7 has put in a good word about us to Bruno and Dias, both look very good.

In terms of CBs, Toby would be my first choice. I know he's a short-term fix, but we need an instant fix to our defence, we can't wait 2-3 years for a new full back and centre back to develop.



22 Mar 2019 00:02:14
Hope these rumours of Herrera to PSG are media rubbish. Would be gutted to see him go. Any truth in it Eds?


{Ed002's Note - They have spoken with him they say.}

1.) 22 Mar 2019 08:09:26
Are any clubs looking at .....

{Ed002's Note - This is the MANCHESTER UNITED page.}

2.) 22 Mar 2019 09:42:33
Thanks for the swift response ed.



06 Mar 2019 13:11:26
Hi Ed002 any truth in the rumours united are interested in Bruno fernandes? Seems he plays attacking mid and may well be a replacement for pogba if he goes. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton and Liverpool have certainly looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Manchester United, Bayern Munich and another EPL side, none have a declared interest that I know of and all have other AM targets.}

1.) 07 Mar 2019 00:37:30
Thanks very much ed.



07 Jan 2019 12:20:18
Hi Ed apologies if this has already been covered but is there any truth in united bidding for Barella? I understand Chelsea are looking at him to replace fabregas. From what I’ve seen of Barella he looks a talented player. Be interested to hear your thoughts on him. Thanks.


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

1.) 07 Jan 2019 13:44:17
thanks for the quick reply ed. hope all is well.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}



15 May 2018 10:20:26
Hi Ed002 is you are around hope you are well mate. I know you said we had interest in alex Sandro but is he now our first choice target for left back? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I can't help with transfers any longer, sorry.}

1.) 15 May 2018 10:41:41
No problem thanks ed.

2.) 15 May 2018 12:32:14
If there is any truth in Sandro at 50 mill and the lad from Napoli as right back who seems highly rated at 44 mill -I don't pretend to know much about him -then Shaw and Darmian out as directly replaced for a net spend of 60 mill for a key part of defence with added attacking flair seems a good deal.

3.) 15 May 2018 12:52:37
would be a great pair of signings if true burrenway. I like Hysaj he looks a very good player. Only time will tell!

4.) 15 May 2018 12:25:31
Ed002 - is there any light at the end of the tunnel? When will you be back?

{Ed002's Note - Right now there is no plan to do anything involving transfers any longer.}

5.) 15 May 2018 14:46:53
Yes Park3lung, a bit of pace and flair going forward. I would then hope TFM comes into the first team squad as a back up rb to get him some real experience.

6.) 15 May 2018 17:41:54
Ed002 i am very sorry to hear that. I hope that there comes a time when this is all resolved and we have the pleasure of your wise words once more.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, we'll see.}

7.) 15 May 2018 21:13:54
Most of us echo those thoughts Pogthedog, this site is a better place with Ed002 on board.

8.) 15 May 2018 22:41:22
Ultimately United will but whoever they buy.

{Ed033's Note - Sounds painful and unnecessary :)

May be early days but wan Bissaka will be one of the best signings we have made in a long long time. He’s so solid in defence and provided a nice assist for greenwood. It’s so great to finally see a proper rb. Ecstatic with this signing.

I thought we looked very good in parts today. So much pace at times. Still vulnerable at the back and a authoritative cb is needed. Feel we still miss a player who can control the tempo. But I did like how we pressed higher up as a pack. I think if Bruno is to come in for Mata then our attack will look much better. Pogba is still our most creative outlet. I personally want him gone and don’t like his attitude, but there is no doubting his talent. Such a frustration because he can be incredible. Some positive signs for sure to build on.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 15:14:54
Rashford's goal was sublime. It had Terry Henry written all over it.

Here's hoping we see more of that in the coming season.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 15:39:37
Rashford's dummy and composure for finish was good to see.
If we don't sign a RW, we can probably try James and Greenwood for that spot.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 15:53:51
Not going to get too excited but there are positives to take from pre season so far. A long way to go though. A very long way.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 16:12:36
This is fantastic watching you lot get excited again LOL.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 16:22:58
Personally i think if we can rotate Greenwood, Chong, James and Lingard on that RW position, it isn't as pressing as some think. I would much rather get a solid CB in (still not sold on slab head but will take it) and then bring in fernandes and depending if pogba leaves Milinkovic savic, if he doesn't leave then longstaff.

6.) 17 Jul 2019 17:08:44
Certainly nice to see the team looking fit and sharp so early in the pre-season, young players giving the manager decisions to make and a couple of signings still to come. Must be doing ok as (I assume) a Liverpool fan is already on here being a tit.

Much better than last pre-season already where our manager seemed to fall out with everyone at the club and moan about the whole tour, Ole is a breath of fresh air.

7.) 17 Jul 2019 17:16:51
1990 you will win the league this year, do you know the Premiership the one you never won.
Get excited this will be your year.

8.) 17 Jul 2019 17:57:56
It's always great to give Leeds a good shellacking.
Would be good to have them back in the Premiership though.
Massive club and Bielsa is a great coach.

9.) 17 Jul 2019 18:49:03
Could be an easy 6 points every season? Joke, they were not there today, Bielsa seemed to only have 16 players available.



10 Jul 2019 01:23:05
Reading Ed002’s comments are worrying. He is often spot on with things. But I want to add my 2 cents if I may.

Quite frankly the lack of support for the manager is disgraceful. What has happened to supporting the club through thick and thin? What’s happened to backing the manager and getting behind the team? There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism, but the constant vitriol and ‘I told you so’ attitude is unbearable.

Ole has my support as long as he is the manager of Manchester United, like Jose did and LVG did before him. And ole will retain this support till the day he walks out the door. Why is it so difficult for our own supporters to back the manager? They may not like him, but he is one of our own until he walks out that door. And then whoever comes in will gain my support. That is what proper fans do. This is the toxic behaviour ed has been talking about. We act like a bunch of spoilt immature kids who haven’t got their way. We are not entitled to win, and we have no given right to be champions.

Nobody likes the predicament we are in. It has been a dire 6 years or so. But we love this club and we support it till the very end. I don’t see why we cannot wait till the end of the window to judge the transfers or take stock of the situation. If things are still shocking, then by all means aim your criticism at the right people. But until then, can we not just sit back and see who we bring in? The doom and gloom is painful tbh.

We all have preferences of who we want as manager. Will ole succeed? The odds are stacked against him tbh. Would I have chosen him? Likely not, with Poch a much better option. But here we are with ole and so we must make the best of the situation. I really think it’s time we unite and mend these fractions in our fan base. It’s so toxic and depressing being a fan at the moment if all there is, is negativity. Yes things aren’t where we want to be, but we still support united through thick and thin.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 09:16:33
Excellent post Park.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 09:50:02
Spot on Park.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 10:19:26
Great post Park. The over reaction on social media to the press conference is a bit of a joke today. Surely it shouldn’t be to hard to support the manager and the team?

4.) 10 Jul 2019 10:24:10
Spot on park, same could be said for players as well.

The likes of pogba, martial, rashford and lingard (tbh i have indulged in criticising him lol) has been pathetic. People are way too emotional about everything associated with the club and allow personal animus for certain players to turn into vitriol and abuse.

Words likes virus, clown, bad influence, leading people astray etc seem unnecessary ways to refer to people.

Most of the people at the club, even alexis sanchez, are hard working professionals trying to do their best for the club. We should just try and support them.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 10:33:45
I would also like to echo this sentiment.

Not only is there from some people a complete lack of support, even wanting him sacked even before a ball has been kicked in the new season, there is also a lack of respect for a club legend. Some are saying that he was only appointed to be a yes man for Woodward, the board and the Glazers. Firstly that is illogical, because that would mean that the people making the decisions are more ore less actively trying to sabotage the club. Many poor decisions has been made since SAF, but I find it hard to believe it has become that bad. Secondly, about a week ago I saw someone say that Ole being a yes man was proved by him saying in the first pre-season press conference that he was happy with the recruitment so far, even though he has previously said that he wanted it all done before the tour. Only a year ago lots of people were not happy with how Mourinho was complaining with the recruitment, and talking down the squad, effectively eradicating the self-confidence of some players. Now Ole is doing the opposite, then he is only a yes man. Well, guess what, then so is most peoples favorite for the job. Pochettino, did not complain at all, when his club bought no-one for several windows. Even at a cruicial point, trying to develop his team into serious title contenders, he did not complain at the lack of recruitment. So he must surely be a yes man as well. Or maybe he understood and accepted the predicament the club was in with the building of the new stadium, and got on with the job. Just like maybe Ole understands and accepts that it is extremely hard in todays market to get players in, especially if you want the right ones. So he gets on with the job without talking down the squad.

Additionally I saw below someone questioning wether Ole had been advised by someone how to answer questions in the most recent press conference, because he answered them well. So now not only is he a yes man, he is also incapable of answering questions in a press conference on his own? He played for United under SAF for 11 years, and was immediately after his retirement trusted to take over the clubs reserve team. Then he had a short and disastrous spell at a club inn chaos, and since then he managed in the Norwegian top level, which is about Championship level. He also seens like a relatively intelligent man. He is clearly inexperienced at PL-level, but to suggest he is incapable of answering questions in a press conference is just ridicoulus.

So, do I think appointing Ole was a good idea? Well, he is clearly inexperienced, and only time will tell if he has what it takes to step up. It is cartainly a gample, but for me there are some positive signs:

The turnaround when he took over was impressive. The football might not have been amazing, but the team certainly played with more tempo and effort.

He quickly identified a lack of fitness levels in the squad, which I think has been an issue for years, and which might also somewhat explain the poor results towards the end of the season.
Hopefully he will improve the players fitness, although I am afraid it can take some seasons (like Klopp used some time to build his teams fitness) .

It also seemes like Ole and the club agrees on recruitment policy, going for younger players. Now I agree the club should always support the manager (or replace him), but at least there now seem to be agreement between manager and club.

It is obviusly peoples right to be critical of the decicion to appoint Ole, but please, show some respect.

Rant over.

Well said.

7.) 10 Jul 2019 11:03:22
Good post Park.

If you don't want to go to games, don't.
If you don't want to watch on TV, don't.
If you don't want to buy the shirt, don't.

But waiting for somebody to fail just to say "I told you so" shouldn't be accepted as a football fan.

The days of supporting a team through thick and thin are now fantasy. People have got used to getting everything they want, it is the way of the world, and if they don't get what they want or somebody disagrees with them, they get emotional and retaliate.

I really, truly hope that OGS makes a success of this, that AWB, James and whoever else we sign this summer do really well, that other players respond, and at the end of the season it is us positive fans saying "I told you so".

8.) 10 Jul 2019 11:11:06
DSG that is a great point. There is such a negative and toxic atmosphere around the club and the fan base is so divided. It’s so draining. And you have these idiot accounts on Twitter stirring up the masses. It’s utterly embarrassing.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 11:48:26
I can both support the manager and acknowledge that hiring him full time was an awful decision. I can both use my heart to want him to succeed and my brain to acknowledge that the odds aren't good.

10.) 10 Jul 2019 11:56:58
Park, I'm glad you posted this, fella. Saved me repeating myself.

11.) 10 Jul 2019 14:59:24
RedRosie nobody is saying you can’t criticise the manager constructively. But the point is people are waiting for him to fail so they can suit their own agenda. It’s embarrassing. To say things like ‘oh sack ole now’ before the season has started us embarrassing. I’m not saying he will be a success. Ed002 clearly has knowledge that I don’t have. But there are fans who are acting you spoilt kids and the toxic tag ed has given us is clear as day to see. So perspective and less of the hysteria would be nice. As I said in my original post, I don’t think ole is the right man. But he’s here now and he retains my support. Some patience to see how things play out during the transfer window is not too much to ask is it?



29 Jun 2019 18:10:15
I’m personally delighted with the Wan Bissaka signing. I think he’s exactly what we need and could turn out to be a very shrewd signing. We have had issues at right back for years and finally we have two young and very talented players to choose from. Eds what is your view on wan Bissaka?


{Ed001's Note - if you didn't have Dalot I would say it was a great signing. It does seem a little odd unless Dalot is already being considered as not good enough at right back. Otherwise surely it would have been better getting someone with experience to help guide Dalot, which you will be lacking. Still, Wan-Bissaka is a good signing either way, probably the best one-one-defender in the Prem.}

1.) 29 Jun 2019 18:28:35
Yeh that’s a fair point ed. Personally I look at it from a different perspective that it’s great finally having some depth in that position. I think there is plenty of games for both to feature. AWB would be my 1st choice. I can see Dalot playing at times at lb or on the wing. Personally I quite like the idea of him as a wing back in a back 3/ 5. The only worry is that him being shifted about so much could possibly be detrimental to his development. He does not want to become someone whose decent in all positions but exceptional in none. Interested to see how this plays out.

{Ed001's Note - I had forgotten Dalot could play on the left, that does make a difference. Shifting them about as youngsters should help them, it all comes down to their attitude and willingness to learn something from a different role.}

2.) 29 Jun 2019 18:52:52
I like the idea of shaw and wan bissaka in the full back positions and james and dalot on the wings in a 4 4 2 formation.

3.) 29 Jun 2019 19:06:24
Out of the current possible options at right wing of sanchez, lukaku, lingard, dalot, mata, chong and greenwood.

Dalot seems like the best option out of those.

4.) 29 Jun 2019 21:39:01
Dalot had played very well on the wing and certainly knows how to cross.

However, the transfer window isn't shut yet. The club may sign more players. That may include another winger.

For now, let's think of it as we have 2 up and coming RBs.

5.) 30 Jun 2019 04:27:36
The good part about ole is he has seen a fair bit of problems and tried to work on them.
1)Fellaini. He basically booted him out.
2)He's shown how he wants to play.
3)He's dropped Lukaku
4)He has bought a RB and a really quick winger which to me are signings that add much needed depth in our squad.

2-3 signings and the club could very well be a top 4 club this time around.

6.) 30 Jun 2019 10:29:46
Wouldn't call dropping last seasons big money signing solving a problem. Additionally think Fellaini was a scape goat at united for a long time. Never a first teamer but he is a game changing substitute who scored goals and won games with that same header at the back post game after game.

7.) 30 Jun 2019 10:02:23
Every team that intends on playing overlapping fullbacks will need at least 3 if not 4 quality options if they are to challenge for honours.

If there is a weakness in the current Liverpool side it is a lack of depth at full back. TAA and Robertson have been phenomenal for Liverpool this season, yet they have been lucky that neither of them really suffered an extended period out injured, as Moreno and Clyne are a big step down.

Yet at United we had Shaw and a young Dalot, with players such as Young, Valencia and Darmian covering. Two of which are likely to leave this summer.

Signing AWB to be first choice with Shaw at LB gives us two good young full backs. Then we will have the experienced Young and the exciting prospect Dalot as back up. The fact that both Young and Dalot can play on the left and the right as well as more advanced gives us added flexibility.

Next summer Young will need to move on and we will need someone else to challenge Young at LB, Tierney or Aaron Martin.

8.) 30 Jun 2019 10:47:30
Rohan, I'd disagree with your post on all of those points.

1. Fellaini was a player who gave it his all for the club whenever he played for United. We all know that he isn't as talented as a Pogba but he more than made up for it in his desire and commitment. Yet he was booted out and Pogba stayed and Ole has since repeated that he wants to build his team around Pogba. If Pogba played with Fellaini's commitment he could be the best. So, how is that in problem solving.

2. We do not know how Ole wants to play. There has been no rhyme or rhythm to his teams in the last 6 months. So no he hasn't shown us that

3. Lukaku is the only natural striker at the club and he outscored darling Rashford even though he hardly played post Ole coming in. That is not a problem solved rather one created.

4. I will give you AWB, based on one season but that's it. Who is dan james really. isn't he a left winger? How many of them do we have and did we need another one? We needed a RW, so yet dan james isn't really a problem solved.

Next year, Liverpool, City, Spurs and Arsenal will all be above us based on current teams. We will no doubt add a few but so will the others. Wolves might challenge and one can never count Chelsea out.

So a little disagreement there. Now let's focus on the India England WC match today.

9.) 30 Jun 2019 13:05:46

I'd disagree about point 2. OGS tried to play at a higher intensity.
The lack of fitness in the squad was clear to see as the engine ran out of steam after 70 minutes.

As far DJ, we've just signed him and already your on his back.
Get behind the kid. For £15 million he could turn out to be a fantastic signing.

Lukaku was overweight last year and ball control is poor at best.
His attitude is questionable aswell. He wants to leave the club.

10.) 30 Jun 2019 14:31:28
MH, i ain't on his back already mate. He could go on and become a brilliant player for the club no doubt. My concern is that we bought where it wasnt a burning problem. We want a RW and yet go on and buy a LW.

Lukaku wants out, but so does Pogba and De Gea. Herrera already out. that's 4 of our first team starters either out or wanting out, surely more than just an attitude issue for me. Its more of a worry that all our better players don't want to b here. And Lukaku really doesn't have an attitude and most will tell u that.

11.) 30 Jun 2019 14:57:54
1. Fellaini was never good enough to play for United. Never should have been signed. He ran around a lot. Sure that's more than some do but he was never a United player. Even his attitude was questionable. Hawked himself around Europe before trying to screw us over for more money. No loss.

2. We clearly saw what Ole wanted to play upto the Liverpool game. Injuries and the squads lack of stamina disrupted that.

3. Lukaku was unfit and overweight last season and has probably been looking to leave since January going off comments he's made.

12.) 30 Jun 2019 17:43:31
UA, James might well on the RW next season. We don't know. I agree, we need a RW as well.



Why are Manchester United Supporters Turning Against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

Good article Park👌.

2.) 06 May 2019 19:03:59
I think it’s fair to say a lot of us think OGS appointment is the incorrect choice, but if he’s given the right structure above him and brings in his own coaches then who knows he has a chance. One thing is clear in his defence - this is not his team or his squad and it’s quite frankly a very poor one he had inherited so needs time to make some very significant changes.



Is Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a 'Yes Man'?

{Ed's Note - Park3lung has posted a new article entitled, Is Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a 'Yes Man'?

Good post Park.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 18:22:10
“I know there's been loads of criticism, I don't know if all these critics know what's happening, " Solskjaer said. "We've got scouts scouring the planet for good footballers and we'll sign players players that we think is the right fit, personality-wise price wise, quality-wise and price-wise. And can you have longevity at this club and I'm confident we're doing what we can to get the right players in. "

This type of talk is worrying. Our recruitment strategy over the last few years has been awful. We have signed players who aren’t of the required quality, and players that seem completely at odds with individual manager’s tactics.

Both Moyes and LVG have publicly criticised the club for not backing them in the transfer market, and ignoring their opinions. Jose was critical of this too, last summer.

There’s is no way, with our current squad, that Ole can seriously believe that our recruitment strategy has been anything other than a disaster. Hundreds of millions spent, and still miles away from City and Liverpool.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 19:12:08
Theres absolutely no way the powers that be are going to take onboard OGS transfer suggestions. They barely listened to Jose on that front.

4.) 19 Apr 2019 19:19:05
I think as ole has said we will sign a few younger players this year.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 19:52:10
I think that’s the way forward jred. That excited me so much more than signing big name players to be honest.

Danny I understand what you are saying. But ole is hardly going to go out and slate the scouting network. I too don’t hold much confidence in Woodward. Our transfer dealings have been a disaster the last 6 years. How many players can we say have actually been a success? Can count them on one hand.

I do have a bit of hope and confidence that perhaps we are moving in a different direction. Ed002 has kindly provided us with a comprehensive list of players we are interested in and they certainly fit the mould of the sort of players we should be targeting. A shift in transfer policy to young and talented players is the first move in a long and unfortunately difficult rebuilding process.

The road will be bumpy and there will be our fair share of disappointments. But at least we are looking to make a change. I do consider myself a glass half full sort of person. Even these last few weeks have been testing for the likes of me. But I think we have to be patient and try and enjoy the ride. If we are shrewd, methodical and clever then we can really build something promising. I have my doubts though whether Woodward and this board can do this. But let’s see.

6.) 19 Apr 2019 20:21:57
We have been signing young players in the last few windows

I’ve never seen us linked to him. Looks a decent player tbf, tidy on the ball. As ed said, spurs looks a more likely destination. Think there are better options out there for us.

I’d personally take £120m minimum. I know some people may laugh at that but I think that’s a good return on someone who is immensely talented but annoyingly inconsistent. He doesn’t want to stay and I think all parties win if a deal like that goes through. The key is if he doesn’t get his move, how he will react. Can’t say I have the biggest faith in him to knuckle down and gives his all. But I hope we get his future sorted out one way or another.

Gomes instead of Chong for me. But agree with ken, too risky. Some fantastic talented youngsters there though.

Fantastic post shappy. It is quite ridiculous that we are not allowed to even get excited about a good performance in a pre season game. Nobody is saying we are going to win the league or that we are even close to city. It’s just nice to see some pressing and attacking football that’s been so sorely missed over the past 6 years. Have we got weaknesses? Of course we have. The cb position is still shaky and until we address that we are win nought. We still have weaknesses in midfield and we have the big issues of Paul pogba to sort out.

But that doesn’t mean that every post has to be doom and gloom. The reality is we are 2/ 3 years from challenging. It’s not a quick fix and will not be overnight. But with a solid window this season we could finally see a plan and an identity to our game. An increase of fitness so we don’t tail off dramatically at the business end of every season. And some much needed consistency and excitement to get the old Trafford crowd on their feet again. We have some extremely talented and exciting young players. We could potentially have Maguire (not his biggest fan but he is an improvement) and Bruno in our side as well. I’m really excited. So can we please temper back on the ridiculous negativity because tbh it’s becoming nauseatingly boring. Ed is right united fans can be unbearably toxic and we are acting like spoilt children tbh. We all want to see united win, but a little patience wouldn’t go amiss.

Wan Bissaka isn’t going to be a great signing ed. Such a good player already with such a high ceiling. Exactly the type of signings I want to see.


{Ed004's Note - Think ed1 got sick of me talking about him throughout the season but he has everything you need in a fullback. Forgot Andreas in my original post. He was excellent}

Spot on ken. That’s my views exactly on the pogba situation.
