Hi ed002.
You said that pogba and martial will obviously stay if we can't do deals for them.
Should any club move for them at this late stage are the club in a position to replace them with incoming players at this point?
So isuppose i'm asking is there a couple of deals for potential incoming players dependent on the sale of pogba and martial. I would imagine any player or club that we are looking to do deals with would be less keen to sell later in the window.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Yes. The transfer window is still open Ken. The club has targets, as you know.}

Hi ed002. Is there any truth in the stories circulating with regard to smalling moving to wolves potentially and is there interest from everton in rojo?
I know you said that we would make these players available for transfer but that the club were finding it difficult to sell them.
Finally is any club showing interest in shaw?
Jose has played hin in a 5 at the back this pre season but seems to have avoided playing him in a straight Back n 4.
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Obviously both are available - Smalling should end up at Wolves, Rojo I don't know.}


1.) 01 Aug 2018 11:35:24
Thank you.


2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:10:41
Music to my ears Ed.


3.) 01 Aug 2018 14:08:28
The interest from Wolves in Smalling is genuine then Ed02? The reporters with supposed close ties to Wolves are saying there's nothing in it.

{Ed002's Note - What did I just type? Were you banged on the head repeatedly as a child?}


4.) 01 Aug 2018 14:15:48
The only thing I've repeatedly banged is your mother.

{Ed002's Note - Interesting, she has been dead for a number of years.}


5.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:12
Panne go play somewhere else prat.


6.) 01 Aug 2018 14:20:28
Don’t go ruining it for all of us panne. Can’t get this information anywhere else but this site. Muppet.


7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:27:02
no need for that type of remark -.


8.) 01 Aug 2018 14:53:19
that's one less person on this site for a while.

Thanks for the update Ed02. As usual this is great info that without you and the other ed's we would not be privy to.

so thanks.


9.) 01 Aug 2018 15:19:51
No wonder the eds get p***ed of with stupid comments like that!


10.) 01 Aug 2018 15:58:06
Lads give him a break, he WAS banged on the head repeatedly as a child after all.


11.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:32
Id bang his head if I had the chance. Prat.


12.) 01 Aug 2018 17:11:24
Good news Smalling is leaving. Some on here will be upset as they think Smalling plays like Maldini.


13.) 01 Aug 2018 17:40:42
Like maldini 😂😂.


14.) 01 Aug 2018 16:26:04
I read this site multiple times every day but never post. However I just had to on this occasion just to say what an person.

I know ed002 can be a little dry at times (and I understand why) but that's not acceptable.
But, I must say that is probably the best put down response from ed that I have ever seen 😆.


15.) 01 Aug 2018 19:28:13
Smalling going finally. Never been at the level required, nor is Rojo. Just hope Jose has an ace up his sleeve. Preferably one named Toby.

Also truly hope it means we see the best of Bailly and Lindelof this season.

Looks like we are going into the season with the same full backs which is interesting, and maybe one more addition for the right forward?

Looks like Martial is coming to a head too - I’ve never said anything else but good riddance to him also. Silky bad apple. Can’t be doing with it. We have one of them already and that’s enough in Jose 😂.


16.) 01 Aug 2018 19:33:06
I will be very surprised if smalling leaves this summer.


17.) 01 Aug 2018 19:43:24
I think smalling is much better than Jones and rojo lol.


18.) 01 Aug 2018 19:57:16
Welcome karllap.


19.) 01 Aug 2018 23:31:17
Jred SSN saying he has agreed terms. Could be happening.


20.) 02 Aug 2018 00:14:50
Eric79 you were saying what about Martial?


21.) 01 Aug 2018 23:37:36
12
Not from what I was told and I know the family .
But they are maybe not telling me the truth?


22.) 02 Aug 2018 09:21:46
Just to add to the weight of what everyone has said above backing 002, this page is so much better with you around.

I can see why the Eds get annoyed with some sets of fans but it's a minority and they don't speak for the whole.


23.) 02 Aug 2018 09:23:46
Any truth in the Smalling rumours? Anyone?


24.) 02 Aug 2018 10:00:58
Smalling to Wolves was just a rumour, Wolves journalist's are saying both Mike and Rojo rumours are wide of the mark, but they are looking at the CB position.


 

 

22 Jul 2018 14:59:43
Any info on this youngster for Rochdale we are chasing Daniel Adshead. Meant to babe Benn very impressive during a trial game.
I love these types of signings as the me fill me with hope.

ken

{Ed033's Note - Babe Benn fills you with what?


1.) 22 Jul 2018 16:01:59
#meant to have been# betty impressive. bloody samsung😂.


2.) 22 Jul 2018 17:34:17
Betty who?


3.) 22 Jul 2018 19:39:29
Oooooooo Betty!


4.) 22 Jul 2018 22:02:44
Easy typo for ken, he calls Benny Baller "babe" all the time in the WhatsApp group. Lol.


5.) 23 Jul 2018 13:39:32
Have turns to babe . Very turns to betty. I wonder if shaw turns into useless😂.


 

 

02 May 2018 22:27:26
I think it's crucial that we get off to a hot start next season from our current squad there are quite a few that will have no world cup at all which is good. But we also have quite a few that should go fairly deep in the tournament.
Let's hope all or players come back injury free.
Pre season gets messed up with players coming back at different times. Let's hope they all come back injury free.

ken

1.) 03 May 2018 09:24:28
Let's also hope that the club prioritise being prepared for the big season ahead - not short term profit making taking up the focus with the manager/ players having to work around a commercial schedule. Pipe dream I know, but these things can be the difference maker in a highly competitive league.

I appreciate our rivals will also be on the commercial hunt, but stepping out of the pack could pay bigger dividends and give us a slight advantage, which we will probably need given how lethargic we have looked for 6+ years.


2.) 03 May 2018 17:33:01
Haven't posted in a while.

Lets hope we start to see more structure and organisation in the club ie boardroom, backroom staff. Still feel we still getting over a "hangover" since Sir Alex retired, in terms of we have declined and teams have caught up.

Feel like we have become dated in our approach. Still wondering why we haven't got a Director of Football at the club, unless Jose wants full control of the transfer within the club.

Our approach now until the beginning of next season will set the tone. Fans will be expecting us to compete and play more consistent. I feel like we are very inconsistent in terms of how the team plays. Manchester City have set a high standard. We must raise our game aswell or they will dominating the league as long Pep is their.


3.) 03 May 2018 18:54:56
Good post shane. The bar has been raised we must accept, meet, and overcome the challenge. In every aspect. We need a few good additions i'd like to see someone step up and become our leader on the pitch.


4.) 03 May 2018 19:17:03
If the bar had been raised then sterling would be the leagues top goal scorer.


5.) 03 May 2018 20:09:33
I agree. Valencia even though he been a great player for us throughout the years. He doesn't come off as a leader type. I know they generally give it to the player who has served the club the longest.

Personally we missing a Roy Keane character player even though their only probably a hand full of those types left. Daniele De Rossi comes to my mind.

Pogba is suppose to be a future captain. Is that because he a natural leader or because he is the biggest name at the club. He gets compared to Vieria a lot, but at this moment I don't see the sort of leadership (that Vieria had) in Pogba.

This is a example of what is needed in Pogba for example to truly become a great. If he wants to get better. Then it is the little things like this that will determine if he becomes a player that either fulfill this world class potential or be doesn't reach his full potential.


6.) 03 May 2018 23:19:04
Ken, we need a hot start, was that a typo? Did you mean head start? That’s what we need.


7.) 04 May 2018 10:40:07
Stand😁😁 it would be nice.


 

 

16 Feb 2018 15:31:49
Hi eds, is there any truth in the reports from turkey yesterday that fellaini has agreed a deal with fenerbece and signed a pre contract?

ken

{Ed002's Note - I obviously have no idea about any reports in Turkey. I have explained for some months been explaining the situation and discussions that have been going on with Besiktas. If he has agreec a pre-contract with Fenerbahce I am afraid I am not the one to ask. I can't answer any questions about "what do you think of reports ..." Ken.}


1.) 16 Feb 2018 16:35:33
It was Besiktas, today he has been linked to Galatasaray. We will see.

Ed002 has been saying long ago Fellaini wanted out last Summer, and it was Mou who intervened.


2.) 16 Feb 2018 16:17:14
The reports were Besiktas.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense then. It is where I expect him to go.}


3.) 16 Feb 2018 16:19:32
Sorry ed my bad. i should have worded that differently.
Thanks.
Its obviously a false report.
Jose is obviously keen for him to stay but perhaps more regular game time is what he is after at this stage of his career.


4.) 17 Feb 2018 11:22:21
He needs to go. If he wants regular game time he has to go. If he stats he's just a bit part player and plan b. Frankly given the wages and his age its better he goes.

Hi ed002.
I find it extraordinary that a business the size of hours have not been able to make the appointment of DoF for so long. It seems to have been a couple of seasons now.
Can you shed any light on what the the delay in making the appointment is?
Or when the club decided that they wanted to definitely decided to make the appointment?
I undersatand that getting the right person is vital but surely it can't take years its seems to be dithering at best from the outside looking in.
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - There is no delay. It must be remembered that there are fewer high end Directors of Football/Technical Directors than there are high end clubs and other sides are also actively trying to fill a similar role. and there needs to be a good fit between the individual and the club. If you are not worried about it being the right person or not it would be a lot easier. The club made the decision in 2016.}


1.) 14 Oct 2018 06:03:32
At least the club are not panicking and rushing the decision on something that can have a very good impact on the club.


2.) 14 Oct 2018 15:35:51
It would seem that Michael Edwards has taken on that role for us Ed002; how would you say he has done since taking over from Ian Ayre?

{Ed002's Note - He is not a football person per se and neither was Ian Ayre, so you are not confirming like for like AW.}


 

 

07 Oct 2018 12:04:50
What i feel we need during the intl break from all players and manager is simply no comment when asked and united or leading questions about the club while on intl duty.
Its time to put a lid on things.

ken

1.) 08 Oct 2018 18:54:18
I agree.
Also think that we could benefit on the site from similar restraint by fans.
Can't really see either suggestion working.
I shows a fine command of the English language to say nothing. So my English Master told us at school.


 

 

03 Oct 2018 00:10:56
Hi
i have a few questions that i hope t you can give us an insight into.
Its been well documented that the club abandoned a long term plan to appoint allegri after lvg and then appointed jose.
Jose then got an extention untill 2020 and promoted mckenna and carrick this season.
So my question is do the club have another long term plan to replace jose in 2020 like they did to replace lvg in 2017?
Secondly is mckenna seen as a potential 1st team coach?
Thirdly or are the club looking for their potential DoF to put a new long term plan in placeand hoping that jose can provide enough until the DoF is appointed and puts his long term plan/ Vision in place?

In hindsight the old plan looks great now so if there is a long term plan that is worth pursuing and waiting for then i'd love to know what it is😁.
At the moment its a bit of a mess to be honest. Players talking to the media and through social media. The board mute. The manager being predictably unpredictable. Videos of training ground rows on social media. Jose picking fights he seemingly can't win. Pogba showing he has no class whatsoever off the pitch and showing not much more on it. Lots of players running out of contract and others with only another season. It looks all a bit amateurish andd not very secure.
Hope the questions are something you have an insight into.

ken

{Ed002's Note - (1) The club would not put a long-term contract in place due to the toxic fanbase that they have. (2) No, they are noise, nothing else. (3) Yes and no. The club are working hard to find a suitable Director of Football and would love to see many years of success under Mr Mourinho. The Director of Football role will always be seen as medium to long term and certainly not short term so no overnight solution to the players or the fans will appear.

The old plan was great and was to see the club through to 2022. The fans ended any thought of that - as I explained at the time and since but all I see is whining from those telling me everything I said was rubbish, and everyone at the club lobes Mr Mourinho and he and his family are settled in Manchester and love it there.

I ope this helps Ken.}


1.) 03 Oct 2018 07:40:22
Cheers ed.
I don't really understand what you mean in your response to Q2 tjat they are only noise?

{Ed002's Note - They are not going to be the head copach of MU.}

Hi all, missed the weekend after having a near death experience, when my 16yo son found me barely conscious and coveted in vomit, my toungue swollen to twice its size after taking an allergic reaction to some meds.
He stripped me cleared my airways and called an ambulance.
So i'm not too bothered about the mini crisis at old trafford just now.
Suffice to say life is short i'm lucky Jack found me when he did and i'm lucky he at 16 had the skills and presence of mind to be calm and know exactly what to.
For me the sun will come up tomorrow and that's all i care about at the moment.

Looking forward to the valencia game tomorrow. Was meant to be going but my brother in law got my ticket now. let's hope for a positive reaction from the players selected.

ken

{Ed007's Note - That's heavy, Ken but it's good to hear that you're OK and well done Jack 👍 You're lucky it wasn't your wife that found you though with your tongue that size 😜


1.) 01 Oct 2018 12:46:53
OMG, ken mate that's pretty intense and puts everything else into perspective. Hope your recovering well, and get your lad a pint.


2.) 01 Oct 2018 12:48:11
Ha ha bond. i thought i heard her akin n the doctors if the could fix the rest but leave the oversized toungue.

{Ed007's Note - It's good that you can joke about it but that must have been scary stuff for your family mate.}


3.) 01 Oct 2018 12:55:59
Scary stuff Ken, but glad that you are ok. Well done to Jack - you must be a proud as well as grateful dad.


4.) 01 Oct 2018 13:33:09
Wow Ken. Puts a lot into perspective. Glad your okay.


5.) 01 Oct 2018 13:47:53
Sheesh Ken hope you are alright mate. Very brave and clever of your son to know what to do in that sort of situation. Makes you realise football is just a game and there is way more to life. Get well soon as this site is a much poorer site without your input.


6.) 01 Oct 2018 13:51:34
Glad your ok pal.

{Ed001's Note - get well soon ken!!}


7.) 01 Oct 2018 13:53:07
Ken brother glad you are ok. Gosh reminds me oh my recent heart ops as well. Life is too delicate and I am so glad that you are back recovering. Glad we have kids at hand looking after us oldies 🙏🤦‍♂️.
Let’s try to meet up some time soon. I’ll try to pay a visit to Ireland and if you come by Singapore do let me know. We are not getting any younger and need to live life to fullest. Football is just a game and I am so appreciative of the friends I meet here (even from other clubs) .
God bless you and will keep praying for you to get back to 100%.

10.) 01 Oct 2018 15:00:25
Hope your feeling better.


11.) 01 Oct 2018 15:37:11
Glad you're ok Ken. Terrible experience, but luckily your son did the right thing.
I used to work for BP in the 80s and had training in CPR. I have used this 3 times, once on my 2yr old son at the time, and most recently on a friend in a restaurant, who was choking to death. Luckily it worked every time.
I would strongly recommend for anyone to take a first aid course.
As for United, i don't care anymore, i just hope the problems are sorted and the manager and players take responsibility and behave in the manner required from a United employee.


12.) 01 Oct 2018 15:49:21
Get well my friend. Glad your ok now. well done jack.


13.) 01 Oct 2018 15:51:03
Wow Ken, I hope you are recovering well mate and top work by your son.

I swear I thought there was going to be some punch line about the West Ham game in there until I realised you were serious.

Get well soon and you must be very proud despite going through a scare like that. All the best.


14.) 01 Oct 2018 16:10:32
Hope your in the mend Ken. Horrible to hear.
What a legend your boy is. got to be worth an award. You must be proud raising a level headed lad.

Wish you and your family the best.

Yoill be gettjng your lad a few beers and a lapdance then 😉.


20.) 01 Oct 2018 18:26:44
At 16 MH he has earned his stripes. 😂😂
Totally on the mend now.
Cheers for all the good wishes.

Its like i said when i went over to play that match earlier this year. I walked into a dressing room having not met any one of them before but it was not like walking into a room full of strangers it was like walking into meet a bunch of old friends.
None of us agree on too much but the community spirit on this site is second to none. Its like a familly. Sure there are a couple of 2nd cousins twice removed that are a bit potty 😂😂😂 but they are still family all the same and your still happy to see them.

On another note ill be posting an article as a self confessed jose fan called the '7 Deadly sins committed by jose since becoming Manchester united manager'

Yeah i know there is more than 7 sins he has committed but these are the sins that to me personally are the main reasons why i will not be sorry when he is gone.
I really look forward to the debates i hope the article will create.


21.) 01 Oct 2018 18:34:12
Scary rubbish mate, just over three months since my heart attack. I am only 44. Not been to OT as don't want a repeat.


22.) 01 Oct 2018 18:47:27
Get well soon mate.


23.) 01 Oct 2018 18:52:20
Jaysus Ken, thank God you're okay pal! And fair play to that young lad of yours. he deserves immense praise. Although a scary moment, I'm sure you are very proud. And I hope he can be proud of himself.

Hope you see a full recovery bud. Wishing you all the best.


24.) 01 Oct 2018 18:54:55
Here here ken. Look forward to your article.

28.) 01 Oct 2018 20:15:46
Thank god your son was there and able to stay calm in what must have been a frantic situation.
Wishing you all the best in your recovery.
Sometimes the football rivalries, banter and abuse takes a back seat.


29.) 01 Oct 2018 20:40:33
Ken
Glad you are ok, severe allergic reactions are very serious and glad you came through it.


30.) 01 Oct 2018 20:57:16
Get well Ken! Your son is. Blessing.


31.) 01 Oct 2018 20:57:22
I had a quadruple bypass a couple of years ago and watching the current incarnation of Utd is certainly trying, many a time my other half will make her way upstairs after hearing me shouting obscenities at the screen after yet another chance is missed or another lazy pass goes astray, it's not good for anyone's health. Glad you're ok Ken and praise to your lad.


32.) 02 Oct 2018 07:33:03
Bloody hell ken thank god your son knew what he was doing and was around at the time, get well soon mate.


33.) 02 Oct 2018 09:05:01
GlD you’re better Ken. very proud dad, the boy did good.


34.) 02 Oct 2018 09:45:48
glad yer on the up Ken mate- look after yerself.


35.) 02 Oct 2018 09:57:51
Just to add Ken, all the best, hope your ok and recovering well. Life is precious, good job we’ve got lovely football to watch 👀.


36.) 02 Oct 2018 11:09:17
Ken you're lucky the young fella just didn't think you were in your usual weekend state after bashing the whiskey lol, all joking aside mate i'm glad you're ok, and hats off to young Jack for his prompt actions.


37.) 02 Oct 2018 16:07:40
I'm glad to hear you are better. Well done to your lil man!


 

 

10 Sep 2018 21:08:56
I see shearer is saying rashford should leave for more game time.
So let's have a look at his options
Would he be 1st choice at liverpool . No
Spurs. No
Arsenal. No
Chelsea. Maybe
City. No
Is the great alan sherer suggesting rashford should sign for someone like newcastle and spend it like shearer did himself winning nothing after he left blackburn?
Lots of game time for a pretty crap team is not the way forward for rashford. He needs to win a place in his boyhood club and fight for the right to play more often. i'm sure he will.

ken

1.) 10 Sep 2018 21:34:59
Sgearer talks bonkers most of the time. He said a year ago "Raahford ahould fight for his place" now he says the opposite. 🤣🤣🤣.


2.) 10 Sep 2018 23:13:17
i think he has been heading the ball to much.


3.) 11 Sep 2018 07:25:57
I don’t know why young English players look to move abroad to learn more about the game and different sides to it coaching etc, may help the national team too. Rashford has gotten mins with us and with decent performances would start for us, maybe when Poch arrives after Jose he will break through for us 😉.


4.) 11 Sep 2018 09:10:48
It's almost like Shearer doesn't like us, I can't imagine that's the case though!


5.) 11 Sep 2018 09:31:06
Rashford has only turned 20. The way these pundits talk about him is ridiculous. The kid is still learning, I think if we keep playing the attacking patterns we had against Burnley ie getting it to the front 3 as quick as possible he’d fit in perfectly. Shame about his red card because he was looking great in that game.
I hate seeing the comments that he should leave all the time. Some pundits were great players but talk a sheer amount of rubbish.


6.) 11 Sep 2018 09:54:02
Dont hear these pundits saying the same thing about Phil Foden.


7.) 11 Sep 2018 11:39:56
Coz Foden is managed by the GOAT, messiah, the saviour, the attacking football prodigy. you can add your own adjectives here.


8.) 11 Sep 2018 13:44:43
I vould add mine raghav but the editors wouldt post it 😁

And alan shearer? Good player who shpuld keep it shut.


9.) 11 Sep 2018 15:30:57
We don't want Shearer, he's effing dearer. Do you honestly listen to anything he says? I have played golf with him over here in Portugal, and he knows I'm a mad United fan, and i never stop taking the piss out of him. He's got a big chip on his shoulder and he knows he should've come to us to win trophies. He's bitter and he never has a good word about United.


10.) 11 Sep 2018 20:35:00
He must lie in bed at night and wonder what if? Yes he played for his boyhood club but it’s a bit like Scholes playing for Oldham; you can say you did it but you won nowt. He could have been a star on the European stage but he chose not to take the challenge. Arse.

Foden isn't mentioned because he has still to break into the first team on a regular basis. Marcus has.

Had a great season so far. He deserves a new contract imo. He has been doing and saying the right things all season. One of the few who is actully full of praise for the manager in fact. There has been a full turn around in his form and his confudence and he looks fit and raring to go. If he keeps his form and fitness it will be a big plus for the team.

Hi ed002.
You have mentiomd United's reluctance to use players in part exchange. It appears common place in european league's.
Why do united choose to avoid this do you know? Is it just a plain strategic decision or is their increased financial and contractial issues when players get involved as part exchange?
To me it makes sense if all parties are happy with it.

Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.

We need 4 or 5 players in the squad with his attitude towards winning but we don't have enough players with any of ibras best attributes.
We have too many players that display ibras worst traits but ibra carried those bad traits off because he delivered more often than not throughout his whole career.
I was not one bit surprised he scored a worldie on his mls debut or in community shield etc he would have owned OT just like eric cantona if we had got him here in his prime.
One of the best of his generation imo.

Huggy i agree. I tgink we have a good 14 or 15 but that we have 6 or so players that make little or no contribution or impact and provide no competition to those ahead of them. And when we do have to rely on them they are not up to the task.
You mention jones rojo but i think you can add darmian young valencia and herrera to that list.
I like herrera best out of that bunch and white smalling and fellaini do play ok they imo are not good enough over a season to be playing 20 plus games and compete to win a league. They have all been here 4 plus years and are either well past their best or not going to improve enough to be regular starters big money tied up in qages for players not making an impact often enough.

Very good post wrd and ed002.
Sure its not perfect but it would be a lot better if the club had backed jose.
We need to clear out some players with a view to reinvesting in players that will do better for club and manager.
The irony is that imo no other manager would have got this squad to 2nd last season and if any other manager comes in the squad still needs major investment. No manager is going to turn young valencia jones rojo smalling herrera etc etc into title winners.
Jose told us at the vegining of the season that it would be a tough season with this squad and he is right.
