With what we have minus Pogba, Rojo, Jones, plus:
Saul, Sancho, Grealish
(Or similar level)

Next summer
Haaland, Koulibaly
(Or similar level)

Raul Jimenez, Ighalo etc signings will support and add depth. Good direction of travel.

With excellent prospects in Greenwood, Garner, Laird, Mengi, Hannibal with Levitt, Williams too. It is fair to say we need better planning for a path to the first team but there’s some quality depth there to challenge the first team.

Utd are well placed with or without Ole. Better prepared than for a long time. If they can solve the football management side out even better.

Utd Road

1.) 24 May 2020 13:08:26
Avoid Koulibaly. He is nearly 30 now amd would cost near £100 million. If you spend money like that one player, he needs to be a lot younger than he is for it to be worthwhile.

2.) 24 May 2020 13:42:55
One of the major aspects that might play a part in dragging the club out of the doldrums is our academy.

Potentially we could name a side like this: Henderson, Laird, Mengi, Bernard, Williams, Garner, Levitt, Mejbri, Ramazani, Greenwood and Hoogewerf

Of which only Greenwood and Williams could say they are already established in the first. While we also have academy players like Tuanzebe, McTominay and Rashford in the first team squad.

Now obviously not all of those lads will make it at the club, but there are quite a few with a really good chance of making it as at least squad players some as first choice players. Henderson, Williams, Tuanzebe, Garner, Mejbri, McTominay, Rashford and Greenwood could all be first choice players within the next 2-3 years. While players like Laird, Mengi and Levitt also have a good chance of stepping up into squad roles.

That gives the club a great platform to work from. Add to that players such as DDG, AWB, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Bruno and Martial who could well be key first team players for the next few years at least. Then the core of a very good squad is there.

2 or 3 top class additions this summer and we have the makings of a league winning side. But more due to the quality coming out of our academy more than anything.

3.) 24 May 2020 16:31:15
Which 2 or 3 signings would they be Shappy, that could see us win the league next year?

4.) 24 May 2020 17:33:19
Sancho and Saul would be game changers for me.
Both so good with possession and on counter.

You can see what type of play we want to go forward with from the type of targets.

5.) 24 May 2020 19:43:47
Mad hatter totally agree re Koulibaly. He is a very good player but he is nowhere near the quality of Van Djik or Laporte. Must be younger and better options. I would be tempted to let Bailly have a full season.

6.) 25 May 2020 12:58:25
Mumbles I didn't necessarily mean win the title next year. My point was more that we would have so many quality young players that we wouldn't necessarily need to sign too many more top players to have a squad capable of winning the league, we would just need some of our players to reach their potential.

In three years time a front three of Sancho, Greenwood and Rashford could arguably be the best in the league if not Europe. While Henderson looks like the best English keeper, and we still have DDG. AWB has the potential to be one of the best full backs in the world, and is probably already the best 1v1 defender. While we have players like Bruno, Fred, Maguire who'll be 28-30 and in their primes, players like Shaw, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Bailly, McTominay, James etc who'll be in their mid-twenties, and young players who might be stepping up to being first team regulars such as Mengi, Laird, Williams, Garner, Mejbri and possibly Bellingham.

So if we sign Sancho, a top young DM, and a top young CB this summer then we will have the core of a great squad that shouldn't need too many other players brought in to complete it. Maybe just a squad player here and there or someone if one of the younger players doesn't work out how we hope.

7.) 25 May 2020 21:22:10
Yes I would agree with all that Shappy. I'm very excited for the future of our great club I must say I think we are in great shape. The foundations are all there and we just need to sprinkle it here and there but we definitely have a strong spine coming to the side. It's been a slow process but I do finally see things falling into place. I just can't wait for things to be back to normal to finally go to the game again.



29 Jan 2020 15:13:06
Hi Ed002 would you happen to know who are the forward players Utd are looking at for January? It would seem they’ve cast a wide net with rumours of Silmani?

Also are some of these random names due to the third party working for Utd checking in on availablities?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about the timings of transfers but can tell you where I know of some level of interest. Aleksandr Sobolev is the only one of the original players that the club were considering buying that cannot be discounted as the others have moved or are not moving right now. The club have, with Spurs, Burnley and RBL, taken a look at Vedat Muriqi but I cannot see him moving this month.

1.) 29 Jan 2020 18:07:15
*searches Sobolev on YouTube.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 19:16:30
Just did. Sign him up! :)

3.) 30 Jan 2020 07:29:28
Would he brake his nose to score a goal?

4.) 30 Jan 2020 23:58:58
Big, burly looking lad, with an awareness of where the goal is in tight positions. Looks the type who would, UR.



23 Jan 2020 17:54:34
Just heard Utd have been asking around a lot for high profile players but are getting flat out turned down due Ole and lack of strategy.

Only one coming up could be Dembele in Summer.

Big fallout with Andreas and most of squad. Gomes related and who is now willing to stay but wants time.

Utd Road

1.) 23 Jan 2020 18:23:31
No surprise there we are hardly an attractive prospect, poor on the pitch, clueless off it.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 12:53:00
Utd Road, do you mean Moussa Dembele from Lyon or Ousman Dembele from Barcelona? I am assuming the striker from Lyon. The rumours make sense that some players say no, given our current situation. And if this fallout means that Andreas sits and Gomes gets more of a chance, I am all for it.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:28:03
Moussa - Ed002 has said we have interest along with a Chelsea I think.

Summer deal only is what I read.

Apparently there’s big issues in the dressing room a lot of it stemming from Young being sold, amount playing time Andreas gets over Gomes and others. Martial has been one of the most vocal and said it to Ole.

Utd seems as joke and to be a right laughing stock to a lot of players now.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 17:26:47
We won't attract stellar signings with ole in charge . He is now coming out with Cantona quotes, can't build a roof first, without foundations crap, sure he reads of a script. We won't sign any players untill the new manager comes in the summer, because we can't carry on with this puppet being in charge.
Sad times at this club, glad Chelsea are crap too, or we would be 15 points of top 4.



21 Jan 2020 18:45:09
Ornstein on Piatek: "Milan either want to sell him for €35m or loan him with an option to buy and within that option, there would need to be some favourable conditions that would turn that option into an obligation. "

Sharing is caring brothers and sisters

Right old goal hanger of player on a loan would be banging.

Utd Road

1.) 22 Jan 2020 02:48:41
Wow. in span of 6 days. I am writing again.

"We do not do sensible dealing here" otherwise we wouldn't be "looking" at even in 21st day of window for down to barebones team.



21 Jan 2020 08:10:18
Rumours Utd are looking at loans this month to pad the squad. Hoping we bring ‘Arry Redknapp in for deadline day.

Only seen links to the Uruguayan CDM from Inter. I like this, all CDMs should be from Uruguay!

Who thinks the season is going a head?
Vote is this Wed?

To me they should play out the FA cup and UEFA cups behind close doors as mini tournaments.

EPL should let those with a game in hand play behind close doors and use those standings for European football.

No relegations promote the top 2 of each league and 4 go down next year.

Seems the lowest risk way to get the season finished.

But surely above it is up to the players?

Utd Road

1.) 24 May 2020 19:54:03
I think the season goes ahead. Spain have already announced that la liga is able to start in June, don't see why the UK won't follow suit.

I don't really get your logic of playing the games in hand and fa cup games, what if they go relatively smoothly?, won't the league look foolish in not playing the remaining 9 weeks and cancelling the season?

2.) 24 May 2020 19:44:39
Forget all football. Prepare for the new season instead.

3.) 24 May 2020 21:26:28
There are so many things i miss more than football.
Im very relaxed about it. It will start when its safe to do so. Mid to End of June looks likely with a September start for next season.
If that's pushed out so be it. I don't see the epl not trying to restart when Spain and Italy have been able to.

4.) 24 May 2020 22:24:59
Would there be any sense in using this as a way to alter the next season calendar so it falls in line with the 2022 world Cup? At some point the major European leagues will have to align their fixtures to allow for a winter World Cup so why not do it starting with the 20/ 21 season.

5.) 25 May 2020 09:16:06
I can see the season restarting and then being cancelled after a week or two once rates soar.

6.) 25 May 2020 11:24:12
I think it will go ahead, but given that Ed002 has said players will be asked to sign risk waivers, we could see a number of high profile players refuse. Especially as more players get infected. Don’t think they’ll get to finish it, and it will end up looking silly by the end of June.

7.) 25 May 2020 11:37:09
I am almost certain that the season will restart.
the teams need it for closure and the fans need it -particularly the scousers who will really moan if they do not get that title.

8.) 25 May 2020 12:25:04
Let them moan.

9.) 25 May 2020 14:07:50
I would imagine it will, we are seeing many other leagues start around Europe. The question of whether they should is still a valid one I feel though.

The reality is that even if one person is hospitalised let alone the worst case scenario because football is being played then it will prove it as being a mistake.

Certain things that can be considered far more "essential" than football aren't able to open yet, peoples lives and their livelihoods are being affected by this. Yet Football marches on.

10.) 25 May 2020 15:12:03
Judging by scenes over the last few days, people have judged themselves that the lockdown is over. Add to that football returning then we could see even more 'mass gatherings'. The general public appears to think the virus is over, I fear that our current actions will determine not if the virus remains but only if it gets worse.

11.) 26 May 2020 11:45:39
All leagues and cups will restart with intention of concluding them all by 31Aug. Then new season across Europe starts on 01Oct. Too much money at stake for it not too though it won’t be ‘crowd’ football for 12 months minimum. Which puts season tickets in a bit of a pickle. Even at United I think match day activities generate 20% of our turnover and TV companies won’t be rushing to pay even more inflated prices for a product that for the forseeable future can only be seen on TV.

Adan Januzaj a blast from the past.
No. 11 is free
RW support needed
Cheap buy back
Big fans in McKenna and Carrick
A chance at redemption

I might be romantic but i kinda like this idea.

We need a striker also. Let’s go get Macheda while we’re at it.

We all laugh but we have just had a bid for Josh King turned down.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 06:15:39
Zaha is doing much better than Januzaj at the moment.

8.) 31 Jan 2020 07:31:49
Tbh not too sure how he’s getting on but I’d take him back as cover. A bit of a shaqiri role.

Still need a CF, I’d go for Costa.

9.) 31 Jan 2020 07:53:35
King could do a good job to be fair, as could Ighalo on loan.

10.) 31 Jan 2020 09:06:22
Diego Costa on loan 😂😂.



30 Jan 2020 19:23:10
Transfer deadline fantasy

So lads and lasses we have 24 hours to buy a forward who would break their nose to score a goal.

Who would you go for, realistic targets only

All below have been linked so far.

Werner- already rejected an approach.
Haaland - Gone
Dembele - Summer only
Piatek- gone

Maxi Gomez
Josh King

Utd Road

1.) 30 Jan 2020 20:01:14
Ideally either Cavani, Mertens or Dembele.

Realistically, Ighalo on loan.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 20:03:38
Rondon or cavani, they fulfill the nose breaking criteria.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 20:53:41
Willian Jose would be my choice if available for loan like suggested! I’m surprised that we are looking for short term tho, if a longer term target has already been identified, then I don’t know why we are not testing the players club with an offer. We definitely need a striker even if Rashford is fit and firing.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 06:18:06
I would break the bank for Lautaro Martinez.

Inter were previously interested in Martial.
How about a swap deal?

Inter have been swooping some of our players recently :)



30 Jan 2020 07:27:40
So after Wolves we have the international break.

On return we are expecting Pogba, Scott, TFM, Axel all coming back plus Bruno.

If we can get a forward in we are well positioned to push for 4th.

Utd Road

1.) 30 Jan 2020 08:17:40
Positive signs to end the season strongly.
Let's see if the club can secure a forward atleast on loan in the next 2 days.



15 Jan 2020 09:17:40
Anyone care to ponder what Neil Ashton and his media business has been brought in to do?

Lots of guesses but will throw one to start:

To sort Ole’s media skills!

A sun journalist? Horrible.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 13:11:39
He’s the guy who presents Sunday Supplement on Sky.

He’s had to quit those roles due to conflict of interest with his new work at Utd. Seems moves are a foot. there’s just some much PR/ media done poorly he could be doing anything!

I’d like to think:
Ole media skills?
Club PR (spinning failure as progress with the youth players, jam tomorrow)?
PR for new owners?

YouTube/ Twitter/ APP is pretty good content but for me Roma’s team are god level. - they post a missing person notice with new signings and things like that. I would be so proud if Utd used their reach a little more selflessly.

He’s a high profile guy to be coming into one of the biggest clubs in the world. Must be a specific remit.

Same feelings on the Sun. I work for a global company and had full row a meeting in front shareholders about our business doing ads with them. Despicable rag.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 13:12:41
Karen needs to be replaced with Stark Industry’s Karen from Spider-Man homecoming!

Reason to wait and see on Bellingham

Granted we are yet to see the role these guys and Jude will play long term and is why along with loan reason I’d wait and see.

(FM suggestion: agreed purchase date as end of next season + loan back, keeps him at Brum till 22.)

Kicked the cab down the road.

League is getting cancelled 100% things are a lot worse than anyone first feared and my WFH is expected to June as min and I cannot see the games getting played between Apr 30 - Jun 30 for EPL and Europe games, then a delay to next season too to allow for a rest period and preseason. I can’t see a way it is happening.

Jun 30th is also when contracts and sponsorships usually change/ break.

They will wait until the last minute and null and void the season. New season in August as usual. If they do it sooner there will be a huge stink and with nothing to talk about it will be big news, waiting until the last minute means there will be a stink but press will quickly move on to cover transfers and the new season.

Only possible outcome and most sensible.
