Rumour has it that Vidic has been offered to coach our mufc B (U23s) . That's according to Vojvodina coach Lalatovic . He is yet to decide.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 18:49:20
Getting him ready for when Ole gets the boot.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 19:58:14
Wow, unbelievable Rock
the red.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 22:25:53
Haha mad

I'm just going on how woody sacks managers. he his a little trigger happy don't ya think.

4.) 03 Jul 2019 13:36:43
Don't suppose we could coax him back into playing. Rather have Vidic back even now than spend 70m on Maguire.



26 Jun 2019 12:11:10
BBC's David Ornstein reporting we have reached an agreement with Palace to sign AWB .


{Ed002's Note - Shows what cheapskates the owners are - should have paid another £25M for him to keep the Toxics happy.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 12:24:42
Ignoring the toxic stuff because it bores me. Good signing, as Ed001 mentioned before AWB is one of the only fullbacks in the league who seems to know stopping the cross coming in is key.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 12:31:37
Love it 002!

Some opinions on here make me think everybody has financial freedom.

Anyway, hope this is true.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 12:33:12
Finally solved a problem out squad had for several years. No more Young at RB!

4.) 26 Jun 2019 13:12:34
Brilliant deal IMO especially if the rumours about the Zaha clause are true as well, now on to the next one hopefully.

5.) 26 Jun 2019 14:00:49
Great bit of business. Very good player. 2 really good signings. Investing in the future.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 14:04:27
Yeah, but ed. Its not the glazers personal cash so it doesn't count 😂.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 15:50:46
Exciting stuff!
I echo Rosie’s words, I’m bored of the toxic nonsense. Does it even have to be mentioned? Quite frankly I find it offensive being constantly branded as a ‘toxic fan’ so perhaps the Ed (s) can avoid being hypocrites and do us all a favour and just not reference the morons at all?

{Ed002's Note - There is no hypocracy.}

8.) 26 Jun 2019 17:06:38
Great signing if completed. Just shows the shift at the club that started last summer. People forget but the signings of Fred (didn't have an exceptional season but the right idea) and Dalot along with James this summer and AWB shows what direction the club is taking with its' signings. Young and ambitious players who want to play for the club. More of the same please. It's not July yet and already two exciting signings. A centre half and two central midfielders then we're laughing. The signings from the past 12 months shows that Ed isn't in charge of what players to get and long may it last 🙌.

9.) 26 Jun 2019 18:09:13
AWB was on a flight from Biggin hill to Manchester
Let's do medical sign him move on to next transfer.



24 Jun 2019 11:20:43
We seem to have signed a 16 year old mateo mejia from R. Zaragoza.


1.) 24 Jun 2019 13:45:36
According to his local newspaper Heraldo d’Aragon, he is apparently very quick, can play left or right wing, is known as “the jewel of Zaragoza”, scored 53 goals in his last 29 games and cost us £600k.

2.) 24 Jun 2019 13:46:57
Must have been a Mourinho target.

3.) 24 Jun 2019 18:34:44
Rumours going around that lukaku may have had a change of heart. Possible he could stay after all.
If that is the case, then we are totally screwed.
Woodward does know how to screw things up big time.
Thought ole said we were getting rid of the deadwood.
Young, smalling, Jones, lukaku, lingard, Sanchez. All still getting paid by mufc. show some balls Ole, transfer the lot of them.

4.) 24 Jun 2019 19:18:44
He can’t if there’s no willing buyers.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 22:05:23
Lukaku might never hack it at top level club football but he is far from a deadwood player.

Perfectly adequate striker to get us back into the top 4 as he will get enough goals provided the chances.

If he goes, good we get a decent fee for him, if he stays, good we have a proven goalscorer at the club.

6.) 24 Jun 2019 22:28:45
If we keep Lukaku we are not "screwed". Our fans make me laugh sometimes. He’s a proven goal scorer and will finish as our top scorer if given the same minutes as our other forwards.

Thursday / Sunday for the season, we need depth and Lukaku is more than a good option with so many games to play.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 06:12:27
Some of our fans are a joke.
Right now, Lukaku is the best striker at the club.

8.) 25 Jun 2019 20:14:22
Zaragoza have come out to deny this. Any truth in the interest?



06 Jun 2019 10:07:53
Just read somewhere that PSG have made a £70 million bid for David de Gea and that DDG's agent Jorge Mendes will meet with PSG reps in Qatar later this week to negotiate a deal.


1.) 06 Jun 2019 10:38:54
We won't get anywhere near that amount for him.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 10:44:52
Just announced that buffon is leaving?

3.) 06 Jun 2019 11:02:55
70m sounds reasonable, better than letting him leave on a free next year.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 11:39:09
Romero for the year. See how he and Henderson (at Sheffield United) get on then decide next summer what to do. If neither are up to it then dip into the market for a goalkeeper who's good with the ball at their feet. Hopefully we won't need to buy one with them two. If Dave leaves then thanks for the great service. We'd be in an even worse position without you ❤.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 11:40:13
I'd snap their hands off at 70m. He is on a free next year and won't sign a new deal.

6.) 06 Jun 2019 12:10:52
agree with shappy snap there hands off for that amount,

we need to be making the defense a priority and we wouldn't need to rely on the keeper as much as we have done over the years.

7.) 06 Jun 2019 12:34:04
Anything over £50 million is good business. He might have twelve months to go but if PSG want him now then they'll have to reach a deal acceptable to us.

8.) 06 Jun 2019 17:07:46
Hazard £88million with a year left on his contract.

I'd hope to expect £60 million or around that figure.

9.) 06 Jun 2019 21:37:16
70 millions on De Gea is good pay out since they can use this money to get Oblak from AT Madrid.



09 Jan 2018 12:00:19
Does anyone here know anything about the us being linked with Leon Bailey and Lorenzo Pellegrini.
Personally have no idea of their quality. But as we all know. it's the season for tabloids to throw names and see which will stick.


{Ed002's Note - Pellegrini is of interest but Roma do not want to sell him. Another English side had a proposal rejected. Roma have a number of folks in London for a couple of days this week where Monchi will read the riot act and they will look to unload some of their surplus players to raise some money. Don't hold your breath. Leon Bailey was of interest to Chelsea when Mourinho was manager so it is possible. Again there is a not for sale flag.}

1.) 09 Jan 2018 12:54:09
Ed, I know you don’t like putting timescales on things and January is a difficult month to buy players etc, but would you say it’s more likely we will wait till summer now, rather than sign anyone this month just for the sake of it? I can’t see many of our top targets being available and we don’t seem close to any deal. Your opinion would be appreciated or any new info you’ve recently heard. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, I am sure something will happen in January if they can make it.}

2.) 09 Jan 2018 13:13:03
Thank you for the quick response Ed.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 15:08:39
Cheers Ed, much appreciated.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 04:00:18
I’m still convinced Ed002 is the head of the CIA, NSA, or MI6. Only explanation. Even Jorge mendes and pini zahavi check this site for insider info. :)

{Ed001's Note - I met Jorge Mendes once out here, the only thing he said to me was 'who is Ed002?'}

04 Aug 2019 13:12:52
To the lpool fans who attempt to troll our Maguire signing, does this stem from the fact that Harry Maguire is the reason they didn’t win the league last season; that goal of his that cost valuable points?


1.) 04 Aug 2019 13:51:04
MBD, I visit your pages out of interest regarding Lukaku and Pogba etc. I know a Liverpool fan has been here going on and on about Maguire which is all a bit silly.
Maguire is definitely going to improve your defence which was a necessity. Furthermore, transfer fees have massively escalated since Van Dijk joined Liverpool for £70 million
Maguire is regarded as a top defender in the premier league, so Leicester demanded a fee to match. There is no point comparing Van Dijk and Maguire or their fees, as the market has changed.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 14:29:35
That's well said Greenflash.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 15:20:33
I think it’s clear that Van Dijk is the better player. Probably the best cb in the world. But it cannot he underestimated the sort of impact Maguire can have on our defence. Already we look a lot stronger, albeit on paper, with AWB and Maguire. Is he worth his fee? Absolutely not. But it isn’t his fault and the market is incredibly inflated. I think it’s wrong to try and compare the two players as there are so many different factors coming into play. He most obvious one being our desperation for a cb signing. Let see how he does this season but I think he will be a brilliant addition.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 17:22:05
Is he worth the fee? That will be determined by the future. We shipped 54 goals last season. If we reduce it to 35 and score a few more, maybe 70, will he have been worth it? I think so. Value is not absolute. It's circumstantial.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 18:58:19
MBD, Liverpool fan here in peace. I am not sure what Harry Maguire had to do with us finishing second. In regards to the transfer fee did you pay over the odds, yes massively down to the fact Leicester knew you were desperate for a centre back and charged accordingly. Virgil and not with any red tinted glasses is currently in a different league to any defender in the world right now, having said that I think Maguire will improve your defence, especially along side AWB who is brilliant purchase.

6.) 04 Aug 2019 23:39:35
Park, i still can't believe that we didn't go in for VVD when he was at Celtic or Southampton.

7.) 05 Aug 2019 11:36:12
Green and Alonso, thanks for the replies. That is why i qualified the kind of lpool fans i was referring to.
Let us see how the season unfolds.



15 Jul 2019 12:06:55
Don't know if this has been mentioned here, but I saw somewhere that Moyes was interested in signing Maguire 6 years ago from Sheffield.


1.) 15 Jul 2019 14:00:38
i think he was. it was when we lost john stones to everton.



26 Jun 2019 10:36:04
Thank you Ed 002 for the blunt replies. If only such comments will knock some sense into the toxics. I won't call them fans or supporters, toxics seems to be the best word. Fans and supporters will want the best for the club and not to ruin it by foolish claims and demands. To be honest, I had not considered this aspect of toxics until Ed002 mentioned it some years ago, since then i have been trying to understand and analyze it,
Although sometimes we have a scenario of a child (fans) throwing tantrums because he wants to eat chocolates only every day for bfast lunch and supper and the parents (Management) not giving in. Most children mature and understand, but when few fail to 'grow up' then the toxicity sets in.
Eds must be tired of our questions regarding glazers, woodward, running of the club, stadium upkeep, players etc. Most of these questions come about as a result of concern and at times worry. When we get replies and they are not favorable, at times we forget to understand that they are not favorable as a fact and not because the Eds want them to be such. This, we have seen has lead to some unsavory interactions here in the past.

Every club has its toxics, Utd have one of the largest fan bases in the world and maybe the most followed club in the EPL, so by that alone, our toxics will be many. As ordinary fans, we can probably play some roles in attempting to defuse the toxicity (not an easy task by any means) . It is rather unfortunate when toxics have so much attention that it actually affects the club.
Some things we should keep in mind;
1. We had such an amazing run with fergie that we might easily forget how tough the league actually is.
2. We will not get all our targets, at least not in one window. Let's be realistic.
3. Not every tom dick and harry linked to us is actually a target. #Dont believe everything you read!
4. We are further away from winning the league than we were when moyes took over. Thus the climb back to the top will represent approx five years of intermittently stagnating and sinking.
5. We should find a better way of channelling our grievances, they shouldn't turn toxic. #Stoptoxicity
6. Take a cue from the pre-92 fans of the club. They stuck with the club through the rough and were wonderfully rewarded. Wonder how many actually thought at that time that we'd over take lpool's league trophy haul.
Glory Glory Man Utd!


1.) 26 Jun 2019 11:29:43
Well said mdb, I am one of the pre 92 fans who suffered in Liverpool's shadow. I grew up going to Old Trafford in the mid seventies and early eighties. A good FA cup run was the best we got, but the support stood by the club and dreamt of catching Liverpool. Nobody really could believe the success Sir Alex would bring, but that success ultimately bred a new fanbase of spoilt fans only used to winning. Everybody wants more of that success, but we are not entitled to it. We are still the biggest club, with the most fans and a huge history. Let's all be patient, get behind the team, stop the toxic negativity and hope we are back on top in the near future.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 11:36:50
Whilst i agree that people are going overboard in their complaints of us not signing every player in the world, i am sceltical how much influence these supposed “toxic” fans.

Surely any club with strong leadership and a plan would be able to drown them out and proceed with their vision uninhibited by “toxic” fans airing their grievances on online platforms immaturely.

For example in the ground there hasn't been that much dissent from matchgoinf supporters. You had the numptys who flew the banner over david moyes and the occasional booing under lvg. But on the whole those fans have supported whoever has been in charge and shown patience. They most certainly won't be turning on OGS anytime soon in old trafford.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 12:17:33
but the fans had a right to boo and complain about what was being served.

regardless the football has been garbage to watch under moyes and lvg it was embarrassing to watch, and we pay a lot of money every week doing so.

i don't agree with the banner but booing when the team doesn't give 100 percent for the badge for 6 straight years now is fine by me.

they take a lot of our hard earnt money and i expect some kind effort for my money.

im not bothered about losing, it happens but the manner of the way you lose is what matters.

{Ed002's Note - Glad you are not bothered about losing.}

4.) 26 Jun 2019 12:37:27
You can't compare the club now to the 80s. No way.
The club won more in the last 25 years than any other british club. Not a club in another teams shadow or waiting for a league title for decades. It has players earning half a million pounds a week and they are not pulling their weight. Fergie came and tore the team apart, revamped the whole club and it took 5 years. 5 seasons on from his depature we are nowhere near the level this club should be operating at.
The Juventus and Bayern arguements are silly. They play in a one team league most of the time. We have to catch up with City and Liverpool, who have changed their whole operations and have been rewarded with sucess. Spurs have made great strides and Chelsea will always invest. Arsenal and United were the best teams in the country 15-20 years ago. Now look. Both teams struggling for honors and with American owners who only care about their bank balance. i'm sick of hearing that the owners have spent money. They spent the money the club earned and not their own. City have made amazing contributions to the community and their youth set ups. All paid with their owners money. How much money has Citys owner taken out of the club? The money taken from the club is theirs technically but when your the biggest club in Britain and a team 5 miles away shows you how to build not just a team but a whole new club, that in 10 years overtakes us, questions have to be asked. No-one on this site can say the recruitment has been up to par. So who is in charge of that? The stadium looks old and parts of it look so cheap. This was the only 5 star stadium in the UK until Wembley was rebuilt. i'm not saying let's boycotg games. Never. But its a serious situation. Call me toxic. Call me whatever. Post on here how much you agree with Ed's assesments of us fans. Then ask yourself, are you happy with the clubs performance last few years? If yes, you shouldn't be on this page. Imagine if Real finished where we had in their league!

5.) 26 Jun 2019 12:51:41
lets face it we ain't going to challenge anytime soon.

so we have to get use to losing or keep moaning about it.

we are miles of the top 2 let alone the rest.



19 Jun 2019 13:02:58
Looking at Soton's scouting and their results and considering how well the players perform when they step up. Couldn't Utd try to emulate their system or at least poach their team to help revive ours? Or maybe some impediments need to be removed from utd to enable us to have similar success.
Considering how many times they have been 'pillaged' by lpool, I am surprised they haven't gone straight for the source. :P.


{Ed002's Note - No, that is not going to happen.}



13 Jun 2019 09:32:47
So 1st game is Chelsea at OT? What a way to get a season started! Can't wait.


1.) 13 Jun 2019 10:53:27
And wolves afterwards. Frankly i am not feeling good about it.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 11:08:30
Why not Srestha? we don't know what team we will have by that date.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 11:26:53
Wigs I think that's the exact reason people are uneasy about the start of the season. Everything is up in the air.

Are pogba, de gea and lukaku leaving or staying?

Is daniel james the only forward we sign this summer?

Are we going to sign a centre back who can pass a football without having a seizure?

Are we going to sign a midfielder who has a good first touch and doesn't run like he's fallen into quicksand?

Is alexis sanchez going to do anything productive in manchester apart from walk his dogs?

Most well run clubs don't have this many issues to address in between seasons.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair Sanchez has been very productive. He has produced his first movie.}

4.) 13 Jun 2019 12:04:50
DSG we have a whole 2 months to get answers to that before the 1st match. And to attempt to answer your questions from a personal POV
1. Only Lukaku
2. No
3. Yes, to be fair Lindelof is already doing that.
4. Yes
5. I wish. :)

5.) 13 Jun 2019 12:09:10
ed hahaha.

6.) 13 Jun 2019 12:16:33

How about our club is such a mess with still no clear idea about our game approach. Not sure which of our top players will leave and average players will get contract extended.

Ps we have poor history with chelsea and wolves buried us last season. Maybe i am being too negative but my mood will be defined once transfer window finishes 😆.

7.) 13 Jun 2019 14:14:11
my point being there's nothing we can do about any of that, maybe i'm on my own but if we sign nobody else then so be it, ill still look forward to the start of the season whatever will be.

Cheers Ed, that must not have been a easy article. I am in the Cr7 camp, and I think he is more of a leader than Messi, as the Euros triumph is stuck in my mind. As Cr7 has achieved something with his Senior National team, messi not so much.
What do you guys make of the claim that Messi is a one club great as opposed to Cr7 having proven himself in more than one club?


{Ed001's Note - that is a very big argument in Ronaldo's favour, as is his Euros achievement with Portugal. Though Barcelona fans would probably say the opposite!}
