Hi Ed, how have you been this year so far? I was wondering if there is any United interest in Ndombele?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has, through a third party, spoken to his representatives to see if there would be interest, but others are already talking with Lyon.}

1.) 09 Feb 2019 20:56:41
Thank you Ed much appreciated.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 23:00:37
Manchester city are interested in him as 1 of a number of players to eventually replace fernandinho, someone I know was at the Lyon game just over a week ago to watch him and someone else for Lyon. This person who knows Paul Mitchell doesn't expect Paul Mitchell to come to us as a Dof either, not gospel just someone's opinion.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 17:25:02
I’ve not actually seen him play, can anyone shed any light to what type of a player he is?

{Ed025's Note - i think he is lined up to replace fenandinho at city next season caolan..

What Neville said Sunday, the defence can't keep a clean sheet, the midfield can't pass forward and the front 3 aren't clinical enough, says it all in a nutshell really.
Whose at fault and how do we change it, well a mixture of tactics and quality of the players obvs but we are stuck in a weird position, change manager but for who? Stick and we drift, does maiden moans thrown at it for next season change anything, I don't know what the answer is.

A top Centre back alongside Lindelof, a right sided player and a dynamic midfielder would obvs improve things on paper but would anything actually change under this regime and by regime I don't mean just Jose. What a mess we are in, in terms of where we are aiming to be, I think we will struggle to make top 4 if I'm honest.

1.) 12 Nov 2018 23:43:43
Lindelof isn’t the answer.

2.) 13 Nov 2018 06:59:04
Depends what the question is FZZ!

3.) 13 Nov 2018 08:04:19
We have the highest wage bill in the country and are below bournemouth and watford.

We have an oppurtunity to get rid of a lot of players whose contracts run out at the end of the season, yet i am reading reports that valencia and young are getting contract extensions.

Baffling to say the least.

4.) 13 Nov 2018 08:47:28
Mourinho likes big strong players.
Matic is static and needs to be dropped.
We have some very good technical players in Mata and Perriera. Herrara is like a little jack russel and gets stuck in.
Bailly needs to play at the back again.

More importantly, can anyone see DDg signing a new contract or Martial.
We could lose a lot of players next summer.

I'd sell

Jones, Valencia (34) in August, Rojo, Darmian, Fellaini, Matic, Sanchez, Smalling, pogba is he wants to go, sell him. Lukaku, poor technically, not a top forward.

The worrying thing is DDG Mata, Herrera and Martial could all leave for free next summer.



10 Oct 2018 12:46:43
Any chance we will go in for Aaron Ramsey in January do any Ed's know?

{Ed002's Note - What I understand the situation to be is that Arsenal had reached a general agreement with Aaron Ramsey and his agent for a new contract but concerns were expressed about his "comportement" so a new deal is on hold but might yet be possible. Right now the two players that Unai Emery thinks about as possible central midfield replacements seem very unlikely options to the person I spoke with so it is unclear where this might end up. In terms of interest: Liverpool yes, and they would provide the best financial solution for the player. Juventus have at least four options in front of him so not right now. Milan yes they are interested - they have targets ahead of him but one is unaffordable at this time and attracting attention from elsewhere; the others are free agents in the summer but one is looking to head elsewhere and the other is Cesc Fabregas. I do not know of interest from Spain but, like Italy, wages would be an issue. Do not be surprised by interest coming from other English sides at some point.}

Thanks Ed, very detailed response, much appreciated.

TFM to Fulham.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 18:54:00
Well, That's that then . Everton have come up on the rails and got Mina and got Gomes on loan just to rub it in.
I've a strong feeling Jose may pack his bags sooner than thought, The Glaziers and Peckerwood have shafted him big time .
But it's us the fan's who gave been shafted the deepest, Think Jose new months ago that the transfer pot was not what was promised.
I really hope he goes for his own sanity. I hope we finish with naff all again, Then hopefully Peckerwood will soon follow.
54 years a red, never doubted the team ever, never wished them bad luck and losses, But enough is enough we are supposed to be a footballing team, What we have become now is a laughing stock and a commercial whore.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 19:07:31
"Commercial whore"
Well put, I completely agree.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 19:24:15
Long time reader, first time poster. Eds do a great job with the site.

I might be reading too much into it, but are the board trying to manage Jose out?
We've spent huge sums since Fergie left and not always in the right place. Pogba, Martial and Shaw so far staying which, if we believe the media, is against Jose wishes. Perhaps hoping next manager will get the best out of them?
Style of play against traditions and current trends/ fan ideals.

{Ed002's Note - I have answered regarding this whole subject since the fans fouled all of the club's plans up and he joined.}

4.) 09 Aug 2018 19:44:25
I totally agree Jose's been well and truly shafted off the board so he should take the hint and walk so we can get someone in to get us playing the man utd way.
I would go for Brendan Rodgers I know he managed liverpool but he would be a breath of fresh air to our club I've no doubt he could get much more out of our squad than jose would.
I'm expecting a lot of backlash for this 😂😂😂 but I think. it would be a good shout.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 19:53:08
Brendan Rogers!

Do me a favour.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 20:34:57
Allegri wouldn't have been much better.

7.) 09 Aug 2018 20:38:16
Ed002, sorry to ask but where is the info on what you mentioned above regarding Jose and the clubs plans and the fans etc.

Is it searchable or can someone point me in the right direction please.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained pepeatedly since the day he signed - read the posts or search.}

8.) 09 Aug 2018 20:42:31
Fact is Allegri was lined up, we spoke, LVG got the boot and now we have jose who has won 3 trophies, improves our stats and rightfully recognised we needed the correct positions strengthening, maybe Jose is the right man and he’s the man we’ve got, he was rightfully frustrated at the transfer window, money has been spent but it was always going to take a lot of money and a big overhaul to undo the Moyes/ LVG eras. He may not play how we all want? He doesn’t how I want but I am fully behind him and the squad we have cz I think there is more to come from this current crop.

9.) 09 Aug 2018 20:58:58
Brendan rogers?

Put that whiskey down mate, its time for bed 🙂.

10.) 09 Aug 2018 21:31:37Guaranga not sharkhead Rodgers .

11.) 09 Aug 2018 22:19:55
This is all such nonsense.

12.) 10 Aug 2018 02:48:37
I want rid of Mourinho probably more than any fan I know. I’m also sick of woodward seeming only interested in commercial deals and I think we need someone else dealing with transfers. But wishing bad on the club in the hope we get rid of them? I don’t think that’s something any true supporter would ever do.

13.) 10 Aug 2018 06:28:35
Good article this morning on the BBC website about why we didn't sign our targeted CB.
If the main defensive target was Varne and we couldn't get him, what is the point in signing anyone for the sake of signing someone, for me I would be happy to go with Bailly and Jones as the defensive partnership for the year.

14.) 10 Aug 2018 08:53:51
we have a good squad, Woodward has facilitated the captures of Sanchez, Di Maria, Pogba and others so we can hardly say he can't get big players in. Mourinhos attitude is terrible but he has won 3 trophies.

what baffles me is that we need defensive reinforcements and we let Tuanzebe and TFM leave on loan when they had a good pre season and we need them. we have defensive injuries and frailties and we should have trusted in them two!

15.) 10 Aug 2018 08:54:40
Let’s not right Man Utd of just yet let’s see how they get on against the foxes later and then we can see more clearly what we have to work on clearly we have a defensive problem but our overall team is strong let’s hope moaning Mourinho cheers up and gets behind his players like he did early Chelsea days.

16.) 10 Aug 2018 09:04:14
Hope this is a loan. We've got a good player on our hands for the right manager.

Armageddon is nearly upon us. Our only hope is that Pep and the greatest team that ever lived in any time ever buck up. What a dire situation. I have my tickets provisionally booked for North Korea in May.

Don't worry lads. When it gets down to squeaky bum time and all the players and Klopp come out with the usual "we're just going to treat every remaining game as a cup final" everything will be grand because Klopp will lose every one of them.

4.) 29 Dec 2018 22:34:29
After seeing their celebrations after the West Brom game, I dread to think what's coming if they actually win the thing.

{Ed0333's Note - it will be the parties of all parties mate.

Ed0333, I'm going to need an extra prescription of diazepam, mate.

7.) 30 Dec 2018 07:01:12
If they do win it then fair play to them. They play great football, Klopp is a force of nature, he has bought well and made them believe. Like it or not he has brought to Anfield what we have been lacking recently - passion, commitment, team ethos, attacking flair, belief, enjoyment. I won’t be happy but I’ll shake their hands and say well done.

It also puts to bed this nonsense of City being the best team ever, interesting to see how Pep copes as the pressure cranks up.

Right now, City and Liverpool are a big step ahead of everyone else and it reminds me of when United and Arsenal were dominating, I can see the 2 of them battling it out for a few years. Who knows, if Poch had has some money maybe he could have taken Spurs up a level.

Our challenge is to step up to the plate and get the next appointment right. Like it or not, the standard was set last year by City and is now being set by Liverpool.

8.) 30 Dec 2018 08:26:31
How dare you talk sensibly and reasonably Tony.

Being nice is something new from United fan bro. All these years with United friends around they are so arrogant and mean when we talk about football. Not always it will be a banter from my United friends. In last few years they are brought back to earth. This turn around I love it.

11.) 31 Dec 2018 00:46:35
Klopp = serial run-up 😆😆 come on Spurs.



28 Dec 2018 08:39:22
Surprising to read the criticism of Diogo Dalot in various places from united fans. The lad looks a real talent. Ok, has been caught out defensively a couple of times but he's a young lad learning his trade at the top level. The defensive side to his game will come with experience. Attacking wise I think he's great, nice to see a right back getting forward and into the box to try and score or assist. I hope Dalot can nail down a first team spot in the months to come as he is someone in this new United way of playing that can really prosper.

1.) 28 Dec 2018 10:02:06
welsh red we have to find some sort of way to moan it can't all be sunshine and roses.

jokes aside i like the kid, give him another 12-18 months of regular first team football and the views will be different, finally a defender that can cross a ball.

2.) 28 Dec 2018 10:08:36
Too early to judge. A defender should be able to defend, that's his job if he doesn't the defencive line is obviously weaker than it should be. In the modern game -and Ole mentioned this a few days ago- the full backs have to push on and fly up that line. So its not an easy position to play but he should be first and foremost a defender.

Denis Irwin could do it, so could Evra . Kyle Walker not so much.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 10:41:27
Whoever plays right back for us is going to have one tough job on their hands as things currently stand.

Primarily because we do not play with a right winger. Mata or lingard always drift in which has its benefits but it leaves a whole side of the pitch for the full back to cover offensively and leaves him with minimal protection defensively.

On the left its a different story with martial playing left wing which means shaw can hang back and leave martial to take on his full back 1 on 1 which he is getting better and better at.

Find an equivalent of martial for the right wing (chong or a new signing) and diogo dalot should have an easier time of it.

4.) 28 Dec 2018 11:26:57
Welsh, it's the tired old game of judging personnel on a game by game basis, rather than over a period of time. The joy of living in a disposable society with a short attention span.

5.) 28 Dec 2018 12:49:16
Lots of time for him yet.

6.) 28 Dec 2018 12:59:08
I would rather watch a flying Dalot down the right wing make some great runs and crosses along with the odd defensive mistake as he learns his trade. Instead of a boring Antonio Valencia holding back, playing the safe option everytime.

7.) 28 Dec 2018 14:14:39
People also often confuse criticism with pointing out areas for improvement.

8.) 28 Dec 2018 16:18:51
Yeah, Sepp. The constructive criticism on this site knows no bounds 😁.

9.) 28 Dec 2018 21:22:18
On a lighter note, the Liverpool fans "defending" of the Salah dive has been world class.

10.) 29 Dec 2018 18:08:02
Supposed to be one of the best in Europe for his age. Give him time and patience, realistically 100 games.



23 Dec 2018 13:15:05
Absolutely fantastic to watch United yesterday. Pace, movement, one and two touch passing at speed and that third goal was just sublime. Full backs much higher up I noticed and players playing with confidence, not afraid to play a risky forward pass. Incredible work rate aswell and Ole's comments each time he speaks has impressed me. He gets what our ethos should be and long may this continue. Tougher tests to come and we may still come unstuck but as long as we continue playing this way we will enjoy watching and pick up more points than we lose as quite obviously there is talent in these lads. I like the front 3 yday and I don't see how Lukaku comes back in tbh tho I'm sure he will get his chance to show how he will be effective with such movement around him. Well done boys!

1.) 23 Dec 2018 14:43:15
Ole has set our players free, they no longer seemed cowed down an scared to play the exciting or risky ball. That has removed the pressure of never giving the ball away.

I read that Ole has told the player he is fine with them losing the ball if they are trying to attack as long as they work hard to get it back.

That seems to be exactly what they needed to hear.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 08:25:37
Think that showed with Pogba. Early on he played a few loose passes - and he got encouragement from the Bench rather than the remonstrations that would have come under Jose.



19 Dec 2018 17:56:22
So, Ole Gunnar Solskjær it is on an interim basis.
Firstly I have to say thanks to Jose Mourinho for the success he achieved at our club and I wish JM luck in the future.
Onto OGS, many say a risky appointment but for me he is a good appointment at the moment, he will play the right way, embrace the way united do things, obvs he will be gone in May but the objective appears to be to bring the positivity and entertainment back and rebuild confidence in the players.
I am happy Mick Phelan is with him, perhaps will add the steel Ole may lack with disciplining players.
Onto the summer and the permanent manager, only 1 choice for me and it's a no brainer, Mauricio Pochettino. Has overachieved with Spurs on that budget, plays the right way, embodies what United are about also, with Spurs limited on money with their new stadium it may be a challenge Poch will want to take at OT, i for one hope so.
So, nowhere to hide now for any players that was holding back, blaming the manager, the weak will be sought out and during the summer a rebuild perhaps will begin.
Are we happy with Ole then chaps?
I recall some on here saying they'd take losses if they was entertained, attaching football will be back and hopefully the results with it.

1.) 19 Dec 2018 19:24:15
I imagine any manager would want 1 season in the brand new stadium, why sit and watch it be built then walk away -if it were a mid table team possibly but a top 4 team, flying high in CL . must be hard to walk away from.

2.) 19 Dec 2018 19:47:56
No money to spend, possible sales to their star players to fund any moves, new stadium is for Spurs not Poch. I don’t see spurs progressing higher than their 2nd3rd place finishes, at United he will have a lot of money to progress to the very top.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 21:53:54
2nd or 3rd will be a lot better than us in the next 2-3 years. I would like to see Poch at UTD but I think he is on to a good thing where he is - have a look back at some of Wengers comments on moving into a new stadium - I think it would be a lot harder than many think to lure Poch away from Spurs.

He has not made wales worse at all. He is trying to change the team around by playing youngsters alongside the older guard who he will phase out over time. Wales have played some good stuff under Giggs and as a Welshman and fan I’m happy to see us try to play the way we do and have a lot of talented youngsters getting games and gelling, only bodes well for the future. At least Giggs knows what it means to be a United player and thr character needed and how to play the United way. Remember the talent pool is far more limited for wales than England, at a club like United he’d have financial backing. I’m not saying we should go ahead and bring him in but I don’t see us being any worse off place wise, in fact as some have said they’d rather see us attack and lose then at least you’d get attack, it’s not always about the big name, LVG, Jose haven’t worked out (least not yet in Jose’s case) but I’d hate to see a legend get panned by our fans anyway.

Smalling was a liability with shirt holding and ripping again, slipping over at a time concentrating is needed too, he’s simply not good enough, Young battled but a tad reckless at times, those are the 2 areas in dire need of an upgrade. Lindelof and Shaw I thought was fantastic, Herrera was immense beside his goal, Matic played ok tho his mobility or lack of it is showing more and more. Pogba was a handful, Lukaku I thought battled well and fought for the team, Rashford always a threat, Mata was busy in the middle and again offered a great deal centrally where he should be. All round top performance and we fight for each other which is brilliant to see. Looking dangerous going forward too, is the type of performance Jose used to be famous for. With Lingard and Martial to come in it bodes well. Ole with Mike Phelan at his side is beginning to look like a winning combination.
Onto Liverpool next and a win vs them to stop them winning the league then ole is in a real strong position.
As alluded to on here Europe we aren’t quite ready for the elite but I don’t think anybody thought we was, a few astute signings to improve the starting eleven at centre back (to partner Lindelof), right back (depends on Dalot) and CDM (competition for Matic) we could be real challengers at home and more equipped in Europe.
Long may this continue, well done lads, fantastic.

Don’t think he will get any form of reception either way tbh, still feel under a more attacking manager he could have thrived here. Ah well, the past, Ole is at the wheel now.
