Ruben Dias. Happening. 🤞.

Utd Road

1.) 12 Jul 2019 15:44:14
I really hope we get Dias or Milenkovic rather than Harry Maguire.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 16:41:05
also lots of Portuguese in the dressing room and history of the club so settling would hopefully be easy. I would guess the clubs know each other well based on transfer history and you'd think a deal could be done.

3.) 12 Jul 2019 16:57:45
Ed002 - have you advised someone at MU that we should be back in for Dias :) as you mentioned he would be the best option for CB. It would be great to get him.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 17:44:10
Really hope this is true.

5.) 12 Jul 2019 18:42:20
Ed002 has been on the money with the transfer targets once again, we're lucky to have this sort of insight on the site.

Dias and Milenkovic seem like the best options we have and here's hoping we see at least one of them come in. If we were able to get Dias and Fernandes from Portugal we will have done a couple of really good pieces of business from what I have seen of both.

6.) 12 Jul 2019 19:09:14
Where are the reports coming from?

7.) 12 Jul 2019 21:12:53
Social media. pinch of salt.

8.) 12 Jul 2019 21:25:34
I’m not saying Dias isn’t a decent prospect but why are people happy to sign him for the reported £60m but up in arms about Maguire’s price tag.
For me, Maguire would bring far more to this current squad than Dias. All you have to do is look at his attitude and influence around the England squad. He looks like a leader to me, someone who ingratiated himself into the England and Leicester teams very well.
Dias has the potential to be a good defender but signing him could be another Lindelof, a season to bed in and find his feet etc. That’s not what Ole needs right now. Wan Bissaka will fit straight in to the team it seems and I think Maguire would do the same. That gives us a starting back four of Shaw, Lindelof, Maguire if he signs and Wan Bissaka.
I can’t compare ability between the 2 because I’ve only seen Dias is a couple of games.

9.) 13 Jul 2019 11:15:34
2toms, Dias is already better than Maguire imo and will keep getting better. I don’t see Maguire as a leader. Yes he brings the ball out of defence but his technique is awful and he will get found out playing in Europe. He’s slow and his positioning is sceltical.

I really hope we get Dias and while we are shopping in Portugal, Fernandes too. I’m really excited about potentially signing those two players, they will both add something new to our play. Fingers crossed.

10.) 13 Jul 2019 22:57:59
Why don’t people rate Maguire?

11.) 14 Jul 2019 08:21:19
I know why many don't rate Maguire but wouldn't say it.



28 Mar 2019 23:10:04
Hi Ed002,
It appears Man Utd are looking to the Portuguese league again with Felix João, Ferndandes (Sporting) and Ruben Dias.

Are these players being scouted for the summer transfer window? Any chance of a quick list of potential targets? Please :)

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - Please try searching - this has all been dealt with before.}

1.) 29 Mar 2019 10:20:55
All 3 are of interest to United and all the 3 were Jose Mourinho targets.

2.) 29 Mar 2019 10:57:49
Why are people so obsessed with transfers? Its like its a separate part of the game to see who people are going to buy all the time.

Its only since Woodward came in that the transfers have been more of a priority than the football. Under Gill and SAF I don't remember people being this bothered every day about whos coming in.

3.) 29 Mar 2019 11:53:17
Not sure FZZ. We used to continually moan about the " no value in the market" excuse every window. although ironically it could not be more true over the last few windows where we have spent silly money.

4.) 29 Mar 2019 17:37:23
I find it really interesting see what direction we are got in.

Looks like we are going back to making galaticos than signing them which is welcomed.

Interesting to see us look to the Portuguese league again. Felix kid looks a prospect.

5.) 29 Mar 2019 20:51:38
Maybe because we are desperate for some new players which requires a transfer window.

6.) 30 Mar 2019 08:48:34
Obsessed by transfers, yes, I remember the club buying Ted McDougal from Bournemouth I think, and we were all disappointed. It has always been of high interest. I was there when Bryan Robson signed on the pitch in 81 and the ground was highly excited.

We had years of excuses under the Glazers, no value. Then in recent years spent a reasonable level of money in a strange way, almost like we had no direction, who would have thought that.

7.) 30 Mar 2019 14:00:27
During the war. 😁.



18 Nov 2018 12:23:11
I read today Mr Mouriniho would be keen on Luis Campos becoming the DoF at Man Utd. However the Utd board want to hold off on hiring anyone until JMs future is clear. This came from an article by Duncan Castles who seems to be a bit of mouthpiece for JM, wondering if there is a thread of truth to this?

Utd Road

1.) 18 Nov 2018 14:01:14
Correct me if i'm wrong but Ed002 said he'd be the ideal candidate for a DOF, to work alongside Jose. Getting tired of talking about issues at the club, need a revamp.

2.) 18 Nov 2018 15:40:40
Seems to be able to spot a player based on his signings at Monaco and perhaps telling how Jardim managed after he left.

I have feeling we will go for Paul Mitchell and try for Poch at the end of the season.

Agree the team needs a rebuild and football management structure also. Question of timing and if the JM stays.

3.) 18 Nov 2018 16:51:24
Regardless of JM staying or not. Would it not be a good move for the club on a whole to appoint this guy if possible.

4.) 18 Nov 2018 21:40:28
Looks like that way to me based on his record. But we to be taking a long time to make a move. I searched Luis Campos a sea his name came up 2016!



13 Nov 2018 14:06:29
Hi Ed002

Any news on outgoings at Man Utd?
Read a rumour of Bailly to AC Milan so made wonder what is happening with Smalling and Rojo as they where linked heavily to Wolves and Everton in the summer.

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - Ander Herrera (CM) wants more game time but club wants him to stay
Eric Bailly (CB) not working out well
Marcos Rojo (LB/CB) not wanted
Chris Smalling (CB) time to go
Anthony Martial (F) wants out
Paul Pogba (CM) - Juve are very keen but that might be a financial issue they probably cannot resolve - Mino wants Barcelona, or else Real Madrid, whose interest has gone for now
Alexis Sanchez (LW/F) - a major mistake and insistent that he does not want to play on the wing - but getting shot of him will be financially difficult because of his wage demands - Fernando Felicevich will try and resolve the situation between the club and player as there are no suiters at the wages he is being paid - although he has approached Bayern Munich and PSG - a free transfer is a possibility
Antonio Valencia (RB) - is becoming another little Johnny jerk off and the chances of his contract being extended are looking less likely
Marcus Rashford (F) might be subject to a large offer
Matteo Darmian (RB/LB)
Juan Mata (AM) out of contract in the summer and will have to consider his options
Others who are out of contract may or may not move on}

1.) 13 Nov 2018 18:30:27
Thanks Ed002, brilliant as always. Also surprised Jones isn't on the list, needs to be the first one out. And how would it be possible for Alexis Sanchez to leave on a free transfer Ed002? Isn't that when a player's contract has run down?

{Ed002's Note - I missed Jones. Players with no contract are Out of Contract players, but a club may elect to let a player leave for free.}

2.) 13 Nov 2018 19:39:03
Thanks Ed.

3.) 13 Nov 2018 19:28:19
Thanks Ed002.

Think I read on the European rumours page that Juventus have an interest in Rashford? Also is it still possible that Martial could stay at the the club?

{Ed002's Note - Yes and yes.}

4.) 13 Nov 2018 19:57:09
Looks like half our team don't want to play for us.

Is it Manchester? Is it the playing style? Is it the fact that we don't look like having a realistic chance of winning something? Is it playing time/ position? Or don't they want to play for our manager?

Something isn't right.

Ed002, you didn't mention De Gea, what is his situation at the moment? I know the club want to agree a deal.

{Ed002's Note - De Gea is likely to be subject of an offer but thye club want to keep him.}

5.) 13 Nov 2018 20:56:11
One thing I never understood is that how players are unhappy with playing time only at United. While other teams who have better players than ours sitting on the bench never have any problems.

6.) 13 Nov 2018 21:45:35
Surprised to see Rashford on the list, was hoping he would have a good career at United. Can you tell us who is interested in him or is it irrelevant at this stage.

7.) 13 Nov 2018 22:30:44
Of all on the list, I’d only be really bothered about Martial leaving.

In an ideal world Bailly turns it around, Herrera and Mata renew whilst Rashford stays loyal. Sanchez only succeeds if a new manager comes in and plays him centrally instead of Lukaku - where he would probably do better to be honest.

I’d welcome a big clear out though, and wouldn’t care less if Pogba was replaced.

8.) 13 Nov 2018 21:18:47
Thank you Ed002!

Sounds like a major rebuild is in the works and a lot of investment going to be required.

{Ed002's Note - That is what Mr Mourinho wants.}

9.) 14 Nov 2018 07:07:50
Good to hear that Ed - it should have happened two years ago. There’s so many players in the squad that would struggle to make the Wolves first team let alone United.

10.) 14 Nov 2018 09:51:11
Fantastic info Ed002, thank you as always for your time.

Good to hear about planned overhaul: too many individuals in the squad now brought in by different managers with different philosophies. (Though would this have happened if a director of football was in place to oversee a grand plan. )

Prune it all back and start the rebuild! Might take a few years but better than keep in buying misfit players without a plan - so bring in the DoF as soon as!

I’d sell Sanchez, Pogba, Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Valencia, Matic, Fred, Bailly and Mata ASAP and start a rebuild around youth, keeping key players such as DeGea, Lindelof, Shaw, Dalot, Herrera, Perriera, Lingard, Rashford, Martial (not sure about Lukaku. ) and gradually bring in youngsters such as Chong, Tuanzebe, Gomez, Greenwood and Garner.

11.) 14 Nov 2018 11:09:28
The club have proved time and again, it is one thing having a list of player you want to get rid of and actually getting rid of them.

Due to wages and transfer fees we haven't been successful in getting rid of anyone.

Our best avenue is to forego a transfer fee and let players contracts run out like smalling, mata, jones, valencia, young and herrera.

There should be no room for emotion when dealing with these contracts.

12.) 14 Nov 2018 11:37:22
Valencia becoming a little Jonny jerk off hahaha i like it.

13.) 14 Nov 2018 16:03:31
Sell Fred?

Nothing like a giving a player time to settle at a new club eh.

14.) 14 Nov 2018 16:45:04
Sell everyone except De Gea.

We'd still have as many points.

15.) 14 Nov 2018 19:38:55
Give the money to Jose and we have a team aged 30+ year old banking extortionate pin money for retirement.
Need to rebuild the management structure and get a new coach before we splash any cash.

16.) 14 Nov 2018 23:27:25
Ed if i could ask, what are the clubs feelings towards rashford? Do they see him staying?

{Ed002's Note - They seemingly want him to stay.}

17.) 15 Nov 2018 11:37:02
{Ed002's Note - That is what Mr Mourinho wants. } Just a follow up question to this comment from Ed, is this the best thing for utd at the moment? In the opinions of the Eds and members here.
Personally, if he is going to get FULL support from the Board et al then why not. Mou may not be the best coach to rebuild a team but he did a fantastic job building the 04/ 05 Chelsea team. Prior to that he did return Porto to Glory. If there are other coaches there who can do this then I am open to that as well, but as it stands, we have Mou.



15 Apr 2018 09:55:35
Hey 002, how are you fixed for a quick and dirty run through of Man Utd targets for summer and possible sales?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - In terms of interest we know of, it is something like this:

GK – we will have to wait and see

Alvaro Odriozola (RWB) - won't leave Spain, may not be a need for an addition this summer

Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester City and Real Madrid
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let him leave this summer for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme – so might be possible
Samuel Umtiti (CB) – a maybe right now although another English side who have enquired have been told he is negotiating a new deal - if that can't be agreed we will see, but Barcelona won't sell before they have a replacement and that is proving to be financially difficult – player is proving to be a real pain in the neck
David Lopez (CB) - do not rule him out - Mourinho will wait and remains keen
Don’t rule out a move for an English CB to keep the balance

Danny Rose (LB) – I expect an offer to be made
Faouzi Ghoulam (LB) - risky after ACL injury
Aaron Martin (LB) – liked by JM
Alex Sandro (LB) – keeps running hot and cold with Juve but they have a replacement in mind so could push to the top of the list
Philipp Max (LB) – would be a great pick but unlikely
Kieran Tierney (LB) – not first team material for MU at this time, liked but unlikely

Jorginho (CM/DM) – player wants MC
Casemiro (DM) – a JM favourite
Fabinho (DM) - not first choice – doubtful

Toni Kroos (M) wanted by JM but not by the club – but JM may get his way
Arturo Vidal (CM) – age/price makes him unlikely but JM likes him
Jean Michael Seri (M) – I would strike him from the list – talking to another PL side
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) – could be priced out of a move
Fred (CM) - alternative to SMS and Kroos

Isco (AM) – depends on RM coach staying or going, serious interest from elsewhere

Christian Pulisic (RW) – very doubtful and a position that is not pressing

Gareth Bale (LW) - Will be offered to Manchester United but I think could be priced out of a move when his injuries are taken in to account - and he will have another option in England
Jose Arnaiz (LW) - viable option, don’t lose sight of him
Marco Asensio (LW) - unlikely because if he leaves he will likely be heading elsewhere and he is very, very pricey
Ivan Perisic (LW) - Manchester United could yet return although he has been struggling a little for form of late

Robert Lewandowski (S) - player wants Real Madrid but they may look first to other options – but not a pressing need right now

Out - perhaps:
Anthony Martial
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (had to leave before end of March)
Chris Smalling
Phil Jones
Matteo Darmian
Luke Shaw

1.) 15 Apr 2018 19:58:04
Cheers ed.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 20:24:22
Great choices there . i'd go with Sandro, Umtiti or Alderweireld, , Jose Arnaiz looks like he might have a lot to prove as he isn't getting game time at Barcelona so will be hungry for success ans i wouls go for Kroos as it seems Pogba will be staying.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 20:25:37
As a dm i would go for Casemiro he could be a really good option for us.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 21:15:20
Thanks ed002 you’re a sweetheart.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 21:18:29
Thanks Ed, very interesting to see.

Considering the good ones that the ed says are less likely, the ones he says are more likely don't really fill me with great positivity.
Does anyone else feel the same way?

Did I read right that RB/ RWB might not be a priority? If so, disappointing.

CB - definitely need a solid and consistent one. Toby Alder would be great, prem proven, but can we really get him and rose from Spurs?

LB - Danny rose is injury prone and hasn't played well for like a year, and will be well overpriced.
Alex Sandro has disappointed me in every champs league games I've watched him in, nothing like a 50-60m fullback.
Aaron Martin for me.

DM - Casimiero is good. Would take him. Matic will only get worse next season i reckon so I think we need a more dynamic holding mid.

CM - Kroos wouldn't give our midfield the transformation it needs. In fact we might find he'd compound our existing issues. And as a big name he'd cost a bomb.
Vidal prob too old to sign now for the type of player he is, though he would definitely improve us short term.
SMS probably the only one out of the entire list worth breaking the bank for.
Fred would be a v good signing I believe.

None of the attacking options there are ideal/ viable in my view, apart from Arnaiz maybe. Bale and Perisic are big no's for me.

Sounding a bit negative but have to admit I'm struggling a bit.

6.) 15 Apr 2018 21:48:24
Thanks Ed much appreciated. Frankly though I am rather underwhelmed by most of the players you mentioned. Yes they are generally very good players but fee are what I would term truly world beaters. You can be sure City will strengthen and even if they didn't I don't think the players you named would make City quake in their boots. Additionally City are by and large a young team who will only grow stronger together.

{Ed002's Note - You have to have players who fit in the team and four of these are players MC are interested in.}

7.) 15 Apr 2018 22:16:37
Thanks Ed

Any of the three CBs would be great additions. As for an English signing to keep balance if Jones and Smalling leave (which I hope they do), I’d love to see us give Tuanzebe a real chance.

LB I’d love Rose. I know some people are negative about his injuries and overall performance level but he’d undoubtedly be a huge improvement for us. Hopefully we keep an eye on Tierney and line him up for a move in the next couple of seasons.

DM I’d rather see TFM given a chance in our squad in this position than at RB (that would mean us having to make a signing there though) . I think Matic has done well for us and no harm having him and TFM as our two options next season

Would love Kroos at CM to make the midfield three. Jorginho and Fred both good options too.

Only attacking player on the list that seems exciting is Asensio. Would move heaven, earth and Martial to get him. But given how unlikely it sounds I’d rather stick with the attacking players we have.

Outgoings seem good, possibly Fellaini and Mata to be added to the list? Andreas Perreira another young player who could add to our squad next season too. An interesting and important summer ahead if we’re to close the gap on City and avoid being surpassed by the scousers.

8.) 16 Apr 2018 04:52:12
Thanks Ed, for update, some great option there.
Left back options seems trick but I would be happy with Sandro,

Umtiti for CB, either Casimiero or Jorginho though the later doesn't prefer us for CDM,

Sergej would my choice for CM, but is overpriced as you say, Not sure with Kross very good on the ball but with Pogba will have many passengers in the middle,

Isco would be good but seems unlikely, LW seem trick, Asensio, very good, Bale and Perisic very experienced but on the decline, Arnaiz have not seen him play.

Outs, I would like Martial to stay but all the signs tell will be sold.
No mention of Blind but I don't see him staying.

9.) 16 Apr 2018 05:05:19
Keep ddg and get likes of alderwierld, Sandro, casemiero, and we will be in a good position. Only worrying factor is all these lw's that we are targeting, even if martial goes we will still have rashford and the 500k man on left. It is someone on the right that we need not on left.

10.) 15 Apr 2018 23:07:32
Ed 2 I totally an understand the concept of getting players to fit the team. I can understand City being interested in them but they have already have a very strong core bedded in. We don't. We need two fullbacks possibly another centre half and definitely at least one midfielder and wide player. City already have almost two players for every position. In some positions they have three choices! Ultimately though any team has to have a solid foundation to build on and a defined pattern of play which allows the players the confidence to perform to their best. We have neither. Winning last week just papered over the cracks. The good thing from today's loss is that maybe Jose gets the funds he needs to buy the players needed to get us back to where we used to be. I do not believe Jose is past it. The players today have to take the brunt of criticism. To play so poorly and without urgency and passion is not the fault of the manager. For all the faults he may have Jose would not instruct a team of his to play like that. The players need to man up and show some character.

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you expect. You are underwhelmed because MC has better, I explain that four of these players are also interesting MC, and now the problem is that MC have more choices. What is it you are expecting?}

11.) 16 Apr 2018 03:21:58
Thanks a lot ed2, you are a legend.

12.) 16 Apr 2018 09:55:03
Thanks for that Ed 002, Max would be an excellent buy for United. He would totally revitalise our left side. Shame it isn't likely, he's a good player and exactly what United need. Have a good day.

13.) 16 Apr 2018 12:02:40
Fantastic Ed, thanks for your time, really made my day!

14.) 16 Apr 2018 13:34:39
Do you know the interested clubs in martial if he were to be sold ed


{Ed002's Note - Juventus.}

15.) 16 Apr 2018 13:53:14
Thanks a lot Ed, at least we have an idea of transfer targets. It's a bit disappointing though that we aren't focusing so much on RW/ RM/ RB.

16.) 16 Apr 2018 16:56:20
I’d love us to sign tierney as he looks an absolute class act, however another year or two at Celtic will do him no harm.

17.) 16 Apr 2018 16:37:26
Ed002 thanks and just saw this. Appreciate your info.
Salute 🙏.

18.) 16 Apr 2018 18:18:27
thanks ed.

19.) 16 Apr 2018 21:11:57
Seems a genuine lack of top top quality available. i'm Thinking Jose's tactics/ inspiration/ man-managment skills next season will be more important than recruitment if this is what we have to choose from.

20.) 16 Apr 2018 21:20:13
I do not understand why there are so many left wing targets but hardly any on right wing. I thought we are loaded on left wing and we desperately need a right winger. Maybe Sanchez is to be moved to the right this summer?

21.) 17 Apr 2018 07:48:45
I can see Sanchez playing out there next year but being given the freedom that mata has to roam inside.

22.) 17 Apr 2018 15:16:44
12daysofhermida why then mess martial around shifting him from left when sanchez arrived if the idea was to play him on the right eventually?

23.) 17 Apr 2018 20:26:12
Fantastic insight Ed, Thank you. On Milinkovic-Savic, from reading a while back he seemed our primary target for midfield. Is this still the case or has the price pushed him down the list. Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I think he would be the number one pick.}

24.) 17 Apr 2018 21:02:33
So Blind and Fellaini are staying?

{Ed004's Note - I very much doubt it}

Juan Mata for club captain.

Best role model, loves and lives Manchester
Takes a paycut to stay, patron for a charity and active.

I can't think of a better man in that dressing room bar Ole.

Utd Road

1.) 02 Jul 2019 21:20:23
We don't need someone nice to be captain, we need the opposite.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 21:28:25
I think its time we had a club captain who plays professional football matches the majority of the time.

13/ 14 - giggs: basically a coach by then.
14/ 15 - 16/ 17: rooney, squad player at best by then.
17/ 18 - carrick: had a heart problem, also pretty much a coach by then.
18/ 19 - valencia, only had one good knee by this point and that was on the leg he never utilised anyway lol.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 21:30:40
I take it you're backing Pogba then Leahy. After all he's the exact opposite of Mata.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 21:54:27
No shappy, the worst part about it is we don't have a captain, herrera was the nearest thing we had to a captain, I look around now and I don't see one, now that's bad for a huge club.

5.) 02 Jul 2019 22:13:57
Leahy, how many players in the EPL would you deem as being good enough to captain United?

I think modern footballers don't want or need a captain like we have known in the past.

People think Pogba would react differently if Keane was captaining the side. But would he? Or would he sue Keane for bullying? Modern footballers are a different breed and can't be handled the way players used to be.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 22:38:44
To be fair I agree with you, there isn't many, last one around was John Terry,
For me a captain has to be like, a Keane, Robson, vidic, Tony Adams, Terry, Gerrard, lead by example,
They are too soft now, all those players cared about the club they played for, they lead by example, give 100% when your playing for this club or jog on.

7.) 03 Jul 2019 02:52:07
Remember one of the United legends saying they used to sprint to try and keep a ball in even though they knew they would not get there. That was the culture and the effort expected and given willingly to the Old Trafford crowd time and time again.

Giggs, Becks Cole, York, didn't matter. They all carried that attitude over the white line everytime they played.

Don't see that today and the team is worse for it. That for me is why Pogba is not a good captain, he wouldn't do that when his chances of success are worse than 1%.

Captain doesn't have to scream and shout. But they do need to be excellent at their own role, and set the tone and standard for the team to follow.

8.) 03 Jul 2019 12:45:45
So we need a captain who as a player gives 100% and cares for the club?

Well then its obvious isn't it. Captain Lingard.



27 Jun 2019 14:24:25
Hi Ed002

Are Manchester Utd nterested in Madison as alternative to Bruno Ferndandes or as well as?

Many thanks:)

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - They won't both be signing.}

1.) 27 Jun 2019 15:09:25
Think I'd prefer Maddison.

Bruno has impressive stats but could potentially struggle to adapt to the country / league.

We already know how good JM is.

2.) 27 Jun 2019 15:38:29
Out of the two Bruno looks the better player right now, but Maddison could have more potential. He is also settled in England, and would count toward the club's homegrown quota.

Personally I would prefer Maddison. However, I certainly wouldn't be upset if we signed Bruno Fernandes.

3.) 27 Jun 2019 18:01:58
Ed if Pogba was to leave would we look at signing both potentially?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

4.) 27 Jun 2019 18:05:50
Any recent news on Bruno Fernandes Ed or is it as was with us, spurs and Liverpool interested?

{Ed002's Note - PInho has been in London hawking two players around earlier in the week talking to several sides.}

5.) 27 Jun 2019 19:29:58
Ed is Dias still available or going elsewhere?

{Ed002's Note - Others are very keen.}

6.) 28 Jun 2019 02:24:16
Sorry Ed002 is it true fernandes deal is almost completed.

{Ed002's Note - What is "almost"?}

With Lukaku seemingly off to Inter Milan. and with prospect of Greenwood being promoted to first team and Martial going back to a center forward would you take a:
Academy product
England regular
Free transfer

As 4th choice, impact sub, cup forward.

Mr Danny Welbeck c'mon deal of the century.

Thumbs up or down?

Would prefer Vardy to Welbeck all day long tbh but we need to move forwards not backwards.

2.) 28 May 2019 22:01:59
Forget a 4th striker we need a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice right winger.

3.) 28 May 2019 23:26:15
Vardy would be our best striker if we signed him no question.

4.) 29 May 2019 09:51:42
We already have new Bambi in Rashford.

5.) 29 May 2019 12:39:36
I think if we go into the new season with just rashford, martial and greenwood we're asking for trouble. Two are inconsistent and ones a rookie.

6.) 29 May 2019 15:29:34
Without a proven goal scorer we will struggle. The midfield don't get enough goals.

7.) 29 May 2019 16:21:52
So it's a maybe? 😀.

8.) 29 May 2019 18:59:01
That's why it's important we get bruno Fernandes who scores loads of goals from midfield, head and shoulders above all the other players in the Portuguese league.

9.) 29 May 2019 19:51:32
The days of the quartet are over, with the 4-3-3 more prominent. If Lukaku and Sanchez go, my guess will be Martial, Rashford, Lingard, Mata, Greenwood, plus one more.

I'm over in Mexico at the minute and have been receiving Spanish language news.

One of the articles was about a UK bias at Utd and the Spanish speakers / clique feel hard done by and would have had new contracts if they where English. The article specifically mentions Herrera, De Gea, Mata, Rojo and Valencia.

Probably bias and Brexit tinted article but wondered if there is a thread of truth here based on recent form of these players and the others not playing at all.

Well Valencia is past it and should have gone last summer. Rojo is permanently injured and rubbish anyway and had an extension inexplicably 13 months ago. Mata is a great guy but too slow for the English game, ineffective out wide and not that great centrally. Herrera can argue he's hard done by but he's asking for stupid money by all accounts. And de Gea can also argue like Herrera but I have a feeling its deliberately running his deal down.

A UK bias at a UK club, how dare we.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 18:02:35
No bias. I agree with mort there 100%.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 18:40:26
Well said mort.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 20:16:16
I'm in complete agreement but interesting to hear this be reported on.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 21:51:32
Read this the other day and just assumed it was a slow news day for United related news.

Hi Ed002
Hope you're all good?

Quick question on Mike Phelan, seems like a lot of stories are emerging about him becoming a Sporting Director? Is this true, he seems like a great guy and all but not quite the track record of a Berta, Monchi or Mitchell in their previous roles. (Not that I'm fussed just seems he's a bit of a pivot from previous characters rumoured to be considered)

And a part 2 if I may, would you be able to summarize the intended new structure?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - Yes, it is like some horrible joke isn't it.}

also lots of Portuguese in the dressing room and history of the club so settling would hopefully be easy. I would guess the clubs know each other well based on transfer history and you'd think a deal could be done.

The page is getting petty that's the point. Posters are asking Ed's questions but then don't like their answer (opinion) and reply posti g negatively which provokes other posters and editors who volunteer to time and info to the site.

Decent debates are a rarity these days.

Props the guys who made this site a lot more fun - ngiak, RFT, Syd, Ronnie.

All toxicity, defensive, negative life imitating art.

Catch up on threads here.

Ed002 gets asked a question, provides an answer that triggers, then gets triggered himself and then leaves.

Hopefully there's pod before see Ed002 on the other side of the window.

The bloke is an A hole, can't wait ft for him to get gone. Same for Sanchez.

Saul would be an amazing upgrade.

I can see Woody getting Wood think of marketing Madison as number 7.

The guy does seem good, humble and driven. I actually think he'd be a better buy than Fernandes. And would be and upgrade on Mata and Lingard.

Saul is a beast of a player.

Better than pogba and would be most complete CM in the PL since Gerrard.

Can you imagine Sir Alex era and announcing Ruud van Nistelrooy playing a glockenspiel.

We should be all in defence
de Ligt, Alderweireld, Tuanzabe, Lindelof

Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Bailly.
