Ed002 is joao felix well thought of as a player? Can't say I know much about him but would love to get some insight.

{Ed002's Note - Yes he is very well thought of, but the asking price is well beyond unrealistic.}


1.) 08 Mar 2019 18:52:52
I’ve never seen him play either but hear such great things.

Anyone know where he would fit into the team? Competition for Lingard?


2.) 08 Mar 2019 21:11:59
I've seen him a few times. He would be best in a free role either wide or behind the strikers similar to where/ how Lingard plays but with more cutting edge going forward and less work defensively.

However, in no way is this lad ready for the EPL. He makes Angel Gomes look like a bouncer. He needs another couple of years in Portugal to fill out and develop further.


3.) 09 Mar 2019 13:06:57
Thanks mate.

Who remembers a few years back when Ed002 said Chelsea had backed away from interest Griezmann because he talks too much to the media? Looks like he was right, airing his 'decision' tonight. Ridiculous stuff.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 14:53:35
Might be an unpopular opinion, especially with the football traditionalists, but this stuff doesn't bother me at all. It's the way the sport is going, it's the way some American sports have been for a while. What a player does on social media, on TV doesn't affect what he does on the pitch.

He's a massive basketball fan, he's doing what LeBron James did 8 years ago and just as every NBA team would have been better with LBJ every football team would be better with Griezmann.


2.) 14 Jun 2018 16:53:17
Lebron James is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time and is at least in the discussion with Jordan and he was a free agent. If Messi were a free agent right now I'd be fine with it. Griezmann is a very good player who isn't a generational talent - he hasn't earned the ego.


3.) 14 Jun 2018 16:54:10
Seem to recall hazard chose to announce on twitter that he was joining Chelsea and not 1 of the Manchester clubs.


4.) 14 Jun 2018 20:59:21
Griezmann stays.


5.) 14 Jun 2018 21:08:14
Talented player but glad he's staying he's nothing but a self-obsessed dickhead.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 21:10:15
He annoys me tbh a very good player but like the above post touches on not nearly good enough to warrant this kind of nonsense.


7.) 14 Jun 2018 21:49:14
Well after that farce he looks like an ever bigger prick. Glad he's staying.


8.) 14 Jun 2018 22:22:51
Tell us how you really feel though Dave 😂.


 

 

28 May 2018 09:07:10
Ed001 - talk to me about Gareth Bale, I know he's going to be offered here and is interested in United but are we interested in him? Spurs have first refusal correct? I'd be surprised to see Levy willing to pay what it takes.

{Ed001's Note - previously United were interested but Madrid did not want to sell. I can't see why they would have dropped their interest in him now. Imagine Woodward clinching that signing, it would enable him to ask for so much more when Yanmar want to put United's name on their next tractor.....}


1.) 28 May 2018 09:54:50
Tractors are great for making bales.

{Ed001's Note - oh damn I am gutted I never thought of that one!}


2.) 28 May 2018 10:13:35
Lol DP that is good.


3.) 28 May 2018 11:38:05
BRAVO DANNY!


4.) 28 May 2018 12:41:07
Never understood the snarkiness about sponsorship. No club cna do without it now. Which PL club would turn down money from a tractor company or noodle partner. they might intimate they would and their fans might say they would but they wouldnt. Every club does it.

Money is money. Arsenal signed a sleeve deal for visit rawanda, suppodedly for 30 mill, whilst Rawanda receive foreign aid from UK? How well does that sit with football fans

First club shop not UTD

First club to commercially tour China. not UTD

First club to commercially tour USA . not UTD.

First club to have in house TV channel. not UTD

First club to have shirt sponsorship, ground naming, sleeve sponsorship . not UTD

Most expensive season tickets in PL. not UTD

Most expensive season tickets in old first divison . not UTD. cheaper than Coventry city to name one of 7

Most expensive season tickets in old second division. not UTD.


5.) 28 May 2018 14:54:01
BoyfromBurrenway - I think you are looking at it the wrong way mate for this particular point. Nobody should have a problem with the club making the most of it's brand to gain sponsors.

The problem is when those sponsorship deals come first, ie, tractor sponsor says to the club we will sponsor you for X amount if you sign Bale! Or there are two potential signings, one is more suited to the team, but the other is more financially beneficial sponsorship wise - where do you think we would go?

The sense I get and I assume many others get, is that we would tend to choose money making as a short-term priority. You can get both of course but that is why people can be a bit 'snarky'.


6.) 28 May 2018 16:00:46
Fair point, well made Beast. Its getting harder and harder to seperate business/ football and to a degree celebrity/ entertainment/ showbiz.

I can remember a time when every club had a commercial office or a deal maker. you just never knew who they were. Woodward/ Levy etc etc are high profile figures now, something that doesn't sit well with me.


7.) 28 May 2018 18:14:43
That’s because previously they never really needed and let’s be honest, everyone knew who the chairman was of their own club as well as others.

Let’s also be honest, does anyone have any experience working in a global business negotiating these deals? IF you do, and I for one do too, you’ll know just how hard they are not only to find, but also to get them signed up. I have a lot of respect for Woody, whose sole objective is to make us as profitable as possible as well as negotiate with greedy agents and players every day.


8.) 29 May 2018 07:46:54
Danny that was classic 🤣🤣👍👏.

27 Jul 2015 12:27:28
Hey Ed001 is you are about? Any thoughts on who MUFC will look to to replace Di Maria?

{Ed001's Note - I always thought Depay was his replacement mate.}


1.) 27 Jul 2015 13:08:09
That's if he does end up leaving. I have a sneaky feeling he might give it another go this season. It would be worth keeping him just to put PSG in their place. I think they have acted inappropriately; constantly going on about the player in an attempt to unsettle him further.


2.) 27 Jul 2015 14:06:16
In my opinion we shouldn't keep a player who gets unsettled by the lures of playing in French league.


3.) 27 Jul 2015 14:12:48
So keep a player we could get 45 million for who can't even be arsed turning up for pre season training? Not sure about that Sam.


4.) 27 Jul 2015 14:31:32
Why on earth would we keep a player, the highest paid player in the league, who doesn't even have the professional courtesy to join up with the rest of the squad?


5.) 27 Jul 2015 15:42:09
GO . go to a much easier league . Its quite clear he can't hack the ruff and tumble of prem league. bye


6.) 27 Jul 2015 20:48:23
You're right guys. Reading that comment back I don't know what I was thinking. I was kind of hoping that Di Maria had a pair and might give it another go and fight for his place, but it seems he is a light weight mercenary with absolutely no respect for the club. So yes, send him on his way, although I hope the club won't sell until we have signed a replacement or got one of their main players in return.

I can't help but think that PSG have instructed him to act like a brat and not turn up for training in order to push the move through.

He will never be known as a great. Great players are made of tougher stuff.


7.) 27 Jul 2015 21:29:19
He was shit last year and why would we want to turn down 45 to 50 million pounds for a player who was an absolute failure in the league and a non factor. some of our fans seem to be more in love with names and reputations than actual performance on the pitch.


8.) 28 Jul 2015 07:19:18
I personally think that Ibra is coming the other way in the di Maria saga. This is probably the suprise LVG was talking about.
Yes, he is getting on but he bossed Chelsea the other night in the first half especially. I personally want any 1 of about 5 other players instead of him but there is no getting round the fact that the blokes a tank and would cause a lot of issues for defenders.

I want ADM out ASAP, lightweight and has the heart of a mouse. Recipe for disaster in premier league.


 

 

08 Apr 2015 14:58:56
I've tried the search engine but found nothing - Any interest from us in Valencia's Andre Gomes?

{Ed002's Note - Valencia's Andre Gomes has been watched recently by representatives of Bayern Munich, Manchester United and by Vicente Fernandez on behalf of Chelsea. However, the asking price would need to pretty much halve to make any transfer possible.}

Hi Ed002 - do you think we are going to be stupid enough to price Pogba out of the move away that he wants? I know the papers tend to make figures up but the numbers that are floating about seem astronomical!

{Ed002's Note - I hope so.}


1.) 10 Jul 2019 15:15:11
Ed, I probably understand that you hate or dislike a lot of United fans, and it’s completely fair. But you do genuinely dislike the club as well?

{Ed002's Note - Is this because I told you the truth and de Ligt won’t be joining? Seemingly all of the vegetables are out today embarrassing themselves. Moron.}


2.) 10 Jul 2019 15:15:22
Why do you hope we are stupid enough to price ourselves out of a move then Ed 😂?

{Ed002's Note - Then the moronic fans can celebrate the players they want going elsewhere whilst they get lumbered with players who have zero interest in the club.}


3.) 10 Jul 2019 15:35:46
Spot on Ed. Why keep pogba when we doesn’t want to be here? Cut ties and bring in players who want to fight for the shirt. It’s not rocket science.


4.) 10 Jul 2019 17:19:58
I hope we sell pogba now and draw a line under it, the same with Sanchez, we need to move on and invest in the areas that need it most.


5.) 10 Jul 2019 17:21:31
Seemed a fair and politely expressed question Raghav.


6.) 10 Jul 2019 18:59:23
Should we address posts to @Ed002 or @MinoRaiola?


7.) 10 Jul 2019 19:44:21
I don't! But I also won't be surprised.


8.) 10 Jul 2019 16:30:23
@Ed002

I understand what you mean about not being able to bring in a replacement until he goes and with every day gone in the market it becomes harder to secure a replacement as they won't wait for us and would want to sort out their future.

Was Tielemans a similar case where United didn't push for a move as Pogba hasn't gone yet and he decided to move to Leicester instead of waiting on a United offer?

{Ed002's Note - YT was never going to be moving gto MU.}


9.) 10 Jul 2019 17:17:37
Ed are there any players at Madrid we would be interested in signing I was thinking like the youngsters who don’t get any game time that you might be aware of?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I can think of.}


 

 

27 Jun 2019 10:37:12
Morning Ed002 - hypothetical for you. As both Leicester and us are interested in Tielemans is it likely this would affect any discussion with Leicester over Maguire? For example would Leicester push for us to drop our interest in Tielemans if we want to sign Maguire? Or does this sort of thing not happen and clubs treat each transfer separately?

{Ed002's Note - It is not uncommon for clubs to ask other clubs to step back from interest during negotiations but Leicester are not in that position as they don't want to sell Maguire for anything but an excessive figure.}


1.) 27 Jun 2019 11:39:51
Appreciate the response Ed002. Interesting to note.


 

 

07 May 2019 12:40:00
So going by Ed002's last list our midfield targets are all unlikely or going elsewhere. Fernandes and Rodrigo to City, Rakitic likely staying where he is and Saul is only a possibility if Pogba leaves. Can't see Pogba leaving as I doubt anybody will be willing to pay what we perceive as reasonable.


Times are tough it seems. Not really sure how our scouting system works but let's hope there are other targets in mind.


1.) 07 May 2019 12:47:08
If pogba stays that can be turned into a positive if we durinf him with the right players.
Ie overlapping full backs attackers with sound tree niall ability and outstanding movement and midfielders that can look after the ball and are tecnically and tactically sound. It works for france and worked for juve. We don't have those players so oogba doesn't shine.


2.) 07 May 2019 12:50:02
Apparently Danny Drinkwater is available and knows the club.


3.) 07 May 2019 12:56:28
I'd sooner have TC23 Mort.


4.) 07 May 2019 12:58:13
Danny welbeck is available on a free too.


5.) 07 May 2019 13:09:06
I think Kroos will be targeted. A precious favourite of Woodward whose still in the driving seat.

Would love N’Didi based on this seasons peformances for his drive and energy.


6.) 07 May 2019 13:11:37
Thats the problem with essentially wasting or stagnating for 7 years. Even if we do rebuild “successfully” the likes of city could still widen the gap between us and them if they continue recruiting effectively and efficiently.

On pogba, ed002 has said on the european pages that juve could offer a few players to exchange or fund a move for pogba. Cancelo, dybala and pjanic i think.

I would take cancelo and dybala for pogba, whether its a swap deal or seperate moves and go back to 4-4-1-1 with dybala off of rashford or martial.


7.) 07 May 2019 13:14:08
Declan Rice and Ruben Neves would be ones for me.


8.) 07 May 2019 14:00:15
Doherty / munier / cancelo (most likely munier as i have high hopes for Dalot)
Alderwiereld / Milenkovic (hopefully both, but unlikely)
David brooks/ tielemans (tough - but both are good herrera replacements esp. if they don't need to carry pogba's defensive work)
Saul (if pog-goes-back, has everything in him to be the heart of this team)
if lukaku/ sanchez/ mata leave - jota / zaha / malcom (that barcelona chap may want to leave esp. if they are considering salah as an option) . Might even give Arjen Robben a cheeky 2 year deal?

Starting 11 of DDG/ romero, munier, milenkovic, lindelof, shaw, matic, brooks, saul, martial, rashford and zaha is not a bad place to start - bench - romero / periera, dalot, smalling, fred, mctominay, greenwood, lukaku/ sanchez/ mata / robben;

top 4 may still be a stretch but its a talented young group without the big egos so solkjaer can mould them into a hard working team capable of flashes of brilliance. We are still missing a world class striker to bring off the bench (giroud? ), but i doubt we will change more than 5 of the first team this window.


9.) 07 May 2019 14:02:45
Ed002 has also said we don't want to do horse trading so player plus cash deals seem unlikely as well. Honestly no idea what happens this summer. Could be a huge mess.


10.) 07 May 2019 14:03:08
Pogba staying would not be a positive. Getting ‘the right players around him’ is another way of saying we should bring in players who cover for Pogba’s lack of work rate. Italy is a slower league, and Juve still had mids covering for him.

This is a player who wants out of the club, can’t be arsed most of the time, and is setting a terrible example for younger players. When Jose was fired, Pogba put in some top class performances just to show Jose he was wrong about him. After he proved his point, he went straight back to doing the bare minimum.

There is zero point in keeping him at the club, and he would be a nightmare to deal with if he’s denied his dream move to Real.


11.) 07 May 2019 14:29:48
Danny i agree with all if that. No argument from me there at all.
But let's remember 1 thing. Ole will be left with players that he wants or even they themselves want to move on but we can't for whatever reason.
Its how ole manages those players going forward will be key to or success.
Example.
Rojo we can't find a buyer its not too dificult a situation you just leave him on the fringes picking up his wages.
But with pogba its going to be a different problem.
Sanchez a different problem again.
Does he want to keep lukaku martial?
They can't all leave. So the best he can do is blend the squad around who he has to keep.
Personally i'm up for a huge clear out ddg pogba martial mata herrera rojo valencia darmian jones.
Sign trippier tierny aldewiereld saul tielmans bale cavani this window. Plus youth and returning loanees) with henderson and romero competing for no1
Next summer look to sancho maddison neves if they all continue to impress and we are back in cl and maybe cup winners.
In the snr pros we recruit we must look to recruit players of the right character that want to embrace the challenge of putting united back in the higher echelons. Embrace the challenge of bring talented young players through alongside them.
Who fits that bill? I think the 3 mentioned are possibilities. Kroos?
Players who have won the lot but are still good enough and motivated enough to embrace a new challenge.


12.) 07 May 2019 14:32:41
Red rosie I've no idea what to expect. Can't wait to see what goes down.


13.) 07 May 2019 17:05:53
Spot on Danny he shows up when he wants which is when he has a point to prove ie mou getting sacked. The bare minimum an employee should bring is effort and willingness to improve and he does neither enough.


 

 

03 Apr 2019 16:53:37
Afternoon Ed002, Is there any chance you've got the time to do one of those lists that explains the summer targets for MUFC please? If I recall correctly from the latest Sharkopod there wasn't much that could be said about Man United due to the issues with the manager etc. I'm hoping now that's sorted there might be more clear transfer plans? Appreciate anything you can offer and understand if it's not worth your time at the minute.

{Ed002's Note - We';; see. Sadly I have had a lot of grief over what I have said about Pogba so I need to be careful.}


1.) 03 Apr 2019 20:04:50
To be fair ed2 as you have said pogba has flirted with a move away for a while. He’s mr inconsistent to most United fans so don’t think we’d be that bothered about him leaving so long as adaquate replacements come in. He’s a player who for me has a fancy ten minutes every 4 games or so, granted the quality around isn’t great either it’s players that may come in that are of interest if you could find the time the majority would be grateful for you to share your knowledge.

{Ed002's Note - Seemingly that is not the case from the replies I get Nelly. I would suggest that the reason he does not always seem so in to it might be bacaise he would like a move to one of the interested sides.}


2.) 03 Apr 2019 20:42:12
Hopefully he goes ed002. No use to us here and much more suited to other leagues.


3.) 03 Apr 2019 20:53:45
reckon Zidane told Mina if pogba doesn’t stop playing well they won’t be able to afford him.
And PP has obliged.
That’s my take on it and I’m sticking to it. He’s been absolute pants for weeks now.


4.) 04 Apr 2019 06:18:37
Let's just get rid of Pogba and Sanchez in a swap for Mbappe. I think we should go all out for him as he likes to drift out to the right and scores a ton of goals too something we need.


5.) 04 Apr 2019 07:22:10
Said for a long time PP needs to go and when we lose a few games he’ll revert to type. The guy is poisonous and I can’t wait to see the back of him. I’m sure he has his reasons for leaving as there’s always two sides, but maybe he’s just not as good as he thinks he is.


6.) 04 Apr 2019 09:39:29
Ed002 - really sad that people ask for info and rumours etc and the eds (yourself as mentioned ) gets grief for giving em what they want! I guess its a small %age but really should be none. There really are some toxic, glass half empty fans.
Everyones entitled to their opinion, so come on guys as we move towards a crucial end of season and more importantly massive transfer window, cut the eds some slack and reread your replies before you hit REPLY button. The eds do this gratis . Thanks.


7.) 04 Apr 2019 10:52:43
Appreciate the response - I understand some people don't like to hear bad news. Personally I just like to hear the news good or bad, hopefully the idiots don't get their way and we get a list from yourself soon Ed002. Thanks for your input as always.


8.) 04 Apr 2019 16:38:25
Letting Pogba go is not bad news i am not sure the fascination with this guy? What has he actually done where you say WOW? ? Its sooo confusing.
Messi/ Ronaldo does wow things every week, Pogba never has.


 

 

22 Dec 2018 11:47:16
Ed001 I'd be interested to get your thoughts on Lazios Milinkovic-Savic. Worthy of the hype or another case of overrating a young player?

{Ed001's Note - he is a very good player, but very raw and in need of good coaching. Excellent technique but suspect attitude. Though he is supposed to be a really nice lad apparently.}


1.) 22 Dec 2018 13:13:16
Should have the funds if we sell a certain midfielder back to Juventus.


2.) 22 Dec 2018 14:21:01
Having a really poor season.

Ignoring the toxic stuff because it bores me. Good signing, as Ed001 mentioned before AWB is one of the only fullbacks in the league who seems to know stopping the cross coming in is key.

Out of interest Ed002, who do you think is capable of doing the job? Obviously we've had your thoughts on the DOF etc but I'm curious to know what head coaches or managers are fit for the purpose.

{Ed002's Note - There are numerous coaches who could do the job perfectly well but the club, should they need to, will have to think about availability, cost, desire etc.. They also need to think about the level of risk there would be involved. It is easy to argue that Max Allegri could do a good job, but he is already at Juventus and has been messed around in the past by Manchester United and turning down Real Madrid shows he is not looking to move. Carlo Ancelotti could do a fine job but his has just joined Napoli. Antonio Conte has had repeaseted success and could do a good job but may not be interested in a return to England and there are others already looking at him and speaking with Chelsea. Laurent Blanc is available, knows the club and has the perfect skill set. Pochettino would be of interest but perhaps not available. Simeone could do the job but would not be interested. I could go on ....}

Doesn't seem like there will be nearly enough time to sell Pogba and sign an adequate replacement before the window closes. We will just have to accept one of our star players doesn't want to be there this year.

Mort I figured you'd be able to tell I'm talking purely from a football perspective. I'm able to separate football from the rest of my life, are you? We've certainly overpaid for all 3 of our targets so far I don't think that is even up for debate. Our defence has improved but our midfield as gotten weaker and we are losing a lot of goals up front too. I love this club but I suspect things are going to get worse before they get better.

We've bought in 3 players - one we overpaid for from the Championship, 2 we overpaid for in the Premier League. Forgive me for not patting the people in charge on the back. We had a terrible season and lost Herrera, likely to lose Lukaku and probably Pogba too. Things are a little bleak at the moment.
