Do you still expect a CB and RW to come in Ed001, even this late in the window? Remember you saying RW is a priority position a few days ago, hopeful.


{Ed001's Note - no mate, I think it is finished now but you never know, deals can be done quickly if the selling club needs to sell.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 10:24:42
Most likely a CB Ed? Reports saying Spurs want player + cash for Alderweireld, get him in and i'll be a lot more excited for the season.

{Ed001's Note - it is hard to say as it is dependant on other teams and moves going through.}

2.) 09 Aug 2018 10:31:27
If they are sellling Kurzawa it is probably because they are confident in getting Sandro.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 10:39:13

This just goes to show that it’s all about shiny new signings for some people, if we don’t sign anyone then so be it, I’m still excited for the new season, one player isn’t going TJ chabge that and we would probably just get him cheap in January anyway, that’s only 4 months away.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 10:44:43
Gds we've all been pointing out the weaknesses in this team for at least 2 seasons. I think its right to assume most of us expected those to be sorted out thus summer. Jose has also pointed out said weaknesses and says he asked for 5 players to address them. He got 1 and 1 for the future. Not really adequate is it.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 10:45:47
You’re right GDS2, one player wouldn’t change anything. Just like if we hadn’t signed RVP we still would have won the league, absolute toff mate.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 10:54:23
GDS2 - I agree some people want signings for signings sake. But do you think we have done anything like enough to close the gap on City with our pre-season?

Any honest Utd fan will not be confident that we are now 19 points better, or City are 19 points worse (or a mix)? If anything the gap looks like widening and that is without factoring in the other competition. We were very fortunate to amass the points tally we did last season, now we have an even grumpier manager (deals not happened), grumpier squad if all the interview/ press are to be believed and no new brainwave with the way we play if friendly tactics are anything to go by. We had our luck last season if you ask me, this season we are in for a Moyes like season if we aren't careful results wise and more of the same performance wise.

Signings were essential this summer, more so than ever. Yet we have labored again, just like we do on the pitch.

Utd should be fighting for titles, not happy to just take part.

7.) 09 Aug 2018 11:03:14
Of course it is GDS, not like we actually NEED players to improve the team, probably moaning about the lack of width last season. 🤷‍♂️.

8.) 09 Aug 2018 11:10:54

I never said one player wouldn't make us better, just that I am still excited for the new season, am I not allowed to be because we might not win the league?

9.) 09 Aug 2018 11:17:15
Beast, the majority of those nineteen points were negative results against the poorest teams in the league, get it right against those teams and the gap and the seemingly unbridgeable chasm that some fans allude to doesn't seem that great. City had a great season last year and that is undeniable but the rest of the chasers blew hot and cold and couldn't put a run together to make the league semi interesting.

10.) 09 Aug 2018 11:49:28
Sky sports at it again with their lies just trying to keep people tuned into their deadline day claptrap.

11.) 10 Aug 2018 09:01:30
@GDS2 well this obviously all your fault. How dare you write a positive, full of encouragement, chirpy, just what the doctor ordered, wonderful, vibrant, supportive and optimistic comment here :)



05 Aug 2018 15:43:09
Do you feel as if we will get Willian Ed001? Doesn't seem like anything is happening, only 4/ 5 days left and it's a priority position. Remember Ed002 saying Mourinho wants to sort out the lack of width in the team, only a RB added so far.


{Ed001's Note - no I think Willian will stay put. Sarri is certainly keen to keep him.}

1.) 05 Aug 2018 16:09:13
Oh crap😓, can you see any other rw coming in Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure someone will arrive for that position yes.}

2.) 05 Aug 2018 16:31:12
ED001, if you were the manager, who woukd you sign as a RW?

{Ed001's Note - Pulisic.}

3.) 05 Aug 2018 16:47:11
Ed1, is that something that you know or is that something like a feeling that someone would arrive? Given that we had been linked with Willian throughout the window, it seems like an anti-climax that he won't be coming in. Thanks for the inputs.

{Ed001's Note - that is seen as the main priority position that you have spent all summer trying to buy for, so I don't expect United to just give up because they can't get Willian.}

4.) 05 Aug 2018 17:24:11
Its all a case of who else is on the list and who's available.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 18:07:50
It might well be Dembele with Pogba moving the other way.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 03:57:26
Cheers ED001. How highly do you rate pulisic?

{Ed001's Note - he is extremely talented with a very good application to training. It is that which should see him go really far in the game. His parents are both professional sports coaches and so he grew up in an environment where he was shown that he needed to be dedicated and work hard to succeed and they are still big influences on him now. Plus he is a United fan, which could potentially add that tiny bit that makes the difference between a good player and a great player.}

7.) 06 Aug 2018 09:31:28
Cheers ED001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}



03 Aug 2018 15:02:58
According to the 'London Press👀', we've agreed a deal with Spurs for Alderweireld, £55m five year deal. Discussing personal terms, hopefully true.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 15:28:51
Be a great signing if true.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 15:58:43
Read same thing and immediately after saw another headline on Sky sports this time; Yerry Mina agrees terms with Man Utd lol.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 16:19:46
Could we be going for both?

4.) 03 Aug 2018 16:31:48
Could be if he wants to play a back 3.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 16:32:07
Maybe if Rojo and Smalling both leave.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 16:38:48
Eric - I think so too. A back 3 would suit us well, especially if we move Pogba on and let mata/ Lingard play at 10. Willian on one wing with Young on another - we will never attack with both wingers anyway. Will give Sanchez the chance to play up top with Lukaku who looked immense against Brazil in that position. Toby’s passing out of defence is also outstanding which is needed with a back 3.

7.) 03 Aug 2018 18:31:25
If we ship out Rojo, smalling and get mina, Toby . it would be fantastic.

8.) 03 Aug 2018 18:49:45
It would be great to get Toby. but doesn't sort out the rw and I carnt see us getting anyone for that position. but never say never transfer deadline not till Thurs a lot can happen from now till then or am I dreaming lol.

9.) 03 Aug 2018 22:12:04
I don’t know why on earth anyone would keep Phil Jones ahead of Mike Smalling. Jones has an injury record that could rival Darren Anderton. Admittedly, he played well for the few months he was fit and got a run in the team last year, he has rarely done it for United while Smalling has proved he is more than capable of putting in good - very good performances and has played with more consistency than either Jones or Rojo.

I’m far from a Smalling fan, however he is definitely a more reliable performer than Rojo or Jones and gives the medical department less of a headache. As a 3rd or 4th choice CB, Smalling over those two any day of the week.

As long as we can get some quality CB’s in that is. Unlikely though. Both Mina and Alderweireld have been mentioned a lot this week, both would be an upgrade on all three, so it would be positive business from Jose if he were to pull off a 2 in / 2 out move this summer. Alderweireld giving us the leadership, quality in possession and balls we are lacking at CB.

Also, Mike Smalling for the golden boot this year.

10.) 03 Aug 2018 23:56:10

Maybe it has to do with the fact that once Smalling is around, Jose will always have a reason to play him (cos he's almost always fit) .

So naturally, we want him out of the way.

As for Jones, it'll be unlikely that he'll ever be more than a sub or backup (due to several reasons top of which is staying fit) .

11.) 04 Aug 2018 08:57:12
I would love to see us switch to a three at the back system, I think it works best for the players we have. However, under Mourinho it will only ever be used occasionally. He has said several times on tour that he is only using that system because of the players he has available on tour.

Once the season starts it will be 4231/ 433.

12.) 04 Aug 2018 11:04:57
Shappy was the idea behind signing Lindelof not using him in a back 3 with perisic as a wing back? Could still be an outside chance of that maybe? I think a back 3 of bailly and Lindelof either side of Toby would be very strong. Fosu mensah also looking decent playing there in pre season with his pace.
I doubt we will sign a wing back but maybe shaw and Mitchell could do enough on the left or young who played there for England.

13.) 04 Aug 2018 13:06:00
Man Utd have regressed. this was a tactic LVG wanted to implement. at the time he wanted to sign Vermaelan who joined Barcelona instead as United were taking too long. few years later and its similar situation. this seems the way Ed Woodward does his business and possibly why that Javier Ribalta decided to move on.



28 Jul 2018 07:42:16
Now, it may be because i'm tired and have misread but i think Alderweireld will be done, don't kill me for posting a rumour, on a rumours page lol.


1.) 28 Jul 2018 08:31:36
I hope so, rather have him than Maguire.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 09:51:41
Everyday of the week Matt, Alderweireld and Willian (given he can perform every week), along with Fred, return of Andreas and a fully fit Sanchez, i think we'll have a very good team. Wonder what's happening with Bale though? He's be a dream.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 10:16:39
I wouldn’t mind Willian, but with rumours going round Chelsea declined Barca’s 60Mill+ bids then I would stay away. Not worth that much, around 30-40Mill mark sounds about right.

4.) 28 Jul 2018 11:29:43
Everton paying 50m for Richarlison and you say Willian for 30?

5.) 28 Jul 2018 13:42:51
Got to take age into account.

6.) 28 Jul 2018 13:45:05
Willian turns 30 before the start of the season. Pace is a big part of his game and he has 3 year max left at the top.

Richarlison on the other hand has another 10 years of top level football a head of him. He is growing and developing and has the potential to improve.

Whereas, Willian has plateaued. Also William's wages would be far higher than Richarlison's.

7.) 28 Jul 2018 14:10:47
When will you stop with this "he is young, he has potential"? Are we a selling club that develops players for other clubs. We have good youth teams, we develop our young playes. And we have to buy good, proven players. William turns 30, it's not like he turns 35.Plus Richarlison has potential but you rather have him over Willian? Football is not a game of age is a game where you've got it or you don't. Simple as that.

8.) 28 Jul 2018 17:50:53
Listen ziko if jose says white there are a few who will say black at every opportunity. Even if they are making sense or not best to laugh it off.

9.) 28 Jul 2018 18:59:11
Bloody Samsung again, eh? :D.



19 Jul 2018 18:34:26
Any reason why we've only made one first team signing Ed001? Is Woodward penny pinching again? Also, are the club still looking for a sporting director? Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - your final question is the main issue. That should have long been sorted by now.}

1.) 19 Jul 2018 19:32:53
Makes sense Ed, can tell they only care about the £££. Literally no planning/ strategy at the club anymore, quite shocking but laughable at the same time, getting very frustrating now. Is there a chance a director will be coming in soon or has that ship 'sailed'?

{Ed001's Note - I really expected it to be done by now. The club have decided to go with one, so it is just a matter of time as the plan has not been shelved.}

2.) 19 Jul 2018 19:36:26
May be down to a bloated overpaid squad that is impossible to shift to make room for new arrivals.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 19:55:53
Heck I'll do the job. I'm cheap. 25k a year will do me plus expenses.

4.) 19 Jul 2018 21:07:37
Il do it for 22.5k mort and il sort my own expenses 😁.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 06:32:41
I'll do it on 20k mate :)

6.) 20 Jul 2018 10:47:25
Step aside lads, I'll do it for 5m a year as long as I get a 10m signing on fee. Ed Woodward only likes to sign people for massively over inflated fees. Lol.

7.) 20 Jul 2018 18:24:48
Do you know Ed who we are looking at as sporting director if anyone?

{Ed001's Note - I don't mate sorry.}

8.) 20 Jul 2018 19:57:52
Tell ya what, il take the sporting director role.

And i will deputise u all as my advisors. but u must keep ronnie at a minimum.

9.) 20 Jul 2018 22:25:55
No worries Ed thanks.

03 Oct 2018 23:07:03
Question for Ed001 and fellow supporters, something away from all the doom and gloom lol, but did any of you see Lionel Messi tonight? I absolutely love him! How can you be that good, i genuinely cannot get my head around it.


{Ed001's Note - no mate never saw anything other than an after match report.}

1.) 04 Oct 2018 07:26:55
He is a phenomenon scholes. Watching him play i find myself asking 'how did he do that'
Great player.

2.) 04 Oct 2018 08:56:29
The only player in world football (perhaps ever? ) who picks the ball up on the halfway line and you think, 'oh, this is a chance here. '

3.) 04 Oct 2018 10:16:26
Run out of words Ken for him. And how are you feeling now mate? If you manage to find some time, try watching some of the highlights Ed, on another level he is, i'm sure you might have realised he's my absolute favourite player. 😬.

{Ed001's Note - he is a great player but I am not a fan of highlights.}

4.) 04 Oct 2018 10:39:19
Too selective for you?

{Ed001's Note - yeah, I like to see how they got themselves into position to receive the ball in the first place. What a player does off the ball is at least as important as what they do on it, imo. Cruyff used to say a player only spends, on average, 3 minutes on the ball in a match, so what they do in the other 87 minutes is what makes the real difference. I agree. The runs off the ball to open up space, the tracking back when the ball is on the other side of the pitch etc etc all make the difference between great players and good players.}

5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:15:39
Great post Ed001 fully agree!

{Ed001's Note - I really dislike the advent of highlight reels, it makes players who offer little look like world beaters, while genuine quality like Kante, for instance, get ignored for years after they have become truly world class. Highlights don't show, for example, how the opposition react to Messi when he doesn't have the ball. How he draws players over to him as teams are terrified of giving him time and space and so open up gaps for his team-mates to exploit. That is just as important to Barca as his impact when on the ball imo.}

6.) 04 Oct 2018 11:21:12
Great great great player. However, he will always have the 'one team' tag hanging over him. Seems all his snr team achievements are with Barca. Unlucky with Argentina as well.

7.) 04 Oct 2018 14:05:11
Bang on Ed001, skills and dribbles on highlights are very deceiving, like Match of the day, one good moment possibly clouding over a poor performance. And as you say, players like Kante go unnoticed, Busquets aswell, do a pointless skill in the middle of the field gets you plaudits nowadays.

{Ed001's Note - Pogba has made a career out of being a highlight here....}

8.) 04 Oct 2018 15:02:38
Genuinely the first name that came into mind, him, Shaqiri, Isco, J. Rodriguez aswell.

9.) 04 Oct 2018 15:32:03
Messi is a once in a generation player, and we have been lucky to have seen him at is peak. I don't think he has been unlucky for Argentina rather than the side have had a poor attitude. You watch how the Argentina side play when Messi is unavailable, they work their arses off. Yet when Messi is on the pitch its like they think "I don't need to work as hard, Messi will win us the game".

Too often the weakness in the Argentina side is them sitting back waiting for Messi to carry them.



01 Oct 2018 10:46:15
Away from Jose and Pogba, anyone see what that fool Richard Keys said about Keane? 😂😂 can't take a man who called Henry 'just a goalscorer' serious, absolutely person.


1.) 01 Oct 2018 13:49:36
I’m convinced he is just doing it to be a WUM and to make himself relevant again. The guy is a tool 😂.

{Ed001's Note - spot on mate, that is exactly what he does.}

2.) 01 Oct 2018 14:52:34
Definitely park, he's just ridiculous.

3.) 01 Oct 2018 16:58:37
It just goes to show how messed up the world is when that hairy palmed misogynist can still get a job in the media.

4.) 02 Oct 2018 15:15:24
Terrible, though Andy Gray and Jason McAteer weren't bad, watch the bit they did the next day on Scholes, Gerrard and Keane fs, he was awful again.



29 Sep 2018 16:18:23
Been an avid backer of Jose since day one but it's just not working out and it won't, i finally accept it. Really wanted it to work out but it's time to end this relationship.

Question for Eds/ Posters, hypothetically, if he leaves today, who do we bring in? Even on an interim basis? But we can't continue like this for the remainder of the season, that's for sure.

Jose will leave, but so do many of these players, some of them have been through 3 different managers post Fergie but are still playing poor and getting away with it, far too many players either not good enough or just not playing for the club. Like Ed002 says, we need a suitable director coming in for one, we have to have a proper succession plan now. Manager, player recruitment all needs to be in tandem with each other.

Let's just hope we can salvage/ scrape top 4 somehow, though it'll be ridiculously hard, can't bare not being in the CL.


{Ed001's Note - it would depend on the director imo. You need him to complement and fit in together. Appoint the director, then bring in the manager that fits with him. I do think you need to take a different tack from the last 3 though. Go for a coach with fresh ideas, someone who will try something new, rather than older managers who are past their best.}

1.) 29 Sep 2018 16:57:24
Good post Scholes. Echo my views exactly. Best way forward is to part ways with the manager now. It’s clear the he’s lost the players and he cannot get a tune out of them. I really have no clue who we can/ should go after. My top 5 candidates would be the following:

(1) Poch (unavailable)
(2) zidane (have my doubts but would be happy to see him)
(3) jardim (Monaco have only won once all season so he could perhaps be attainable - I’m a big fan)
(4) Nagelsmann (very promising but too early perhaps. Destined for Bayern)
(5) Howe (fear it may be a Moyes type signing)

Ed is right, a director of football is so important, and essentially will dictate the way we go. Howe and Nagelsmann would need a dof in particular. Think we may see zidane join. He is exactly the sort of manager Woodward would go for (ie big name) . Things are really bad at the moment. Waiting to sack Jose is a very dangerous tactic. We need a resolution quickly and if that means paying a large compensation package to Jose, then so be it. Next out the door - pogba. He’s a bad influence and I don’t want him anywhere near our club.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 17:04:35
The season is gone and I don't expect anyone to come in and turn it around within a few months. So I would like to have Zidane as the interim manager. We are anyways boring to watch and there are no attack minded managers available who can change everything overnight. Atleast with Zidane players like Dalot, Shaw, Rashford, Martial etc will become better players. You can say whatever you want about his inexperience and playing style but he's a good coach and his work on the field will make many players better which would be good for us in the future. He should be given contract till the end of the season and then decide whether to continue with him. But I doubt he would be ready for any such arrangement.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 17:08:14
We've supposedly been trying to hire one since 2016. How hard is it? Wages can't be a hold up. So is it the definition of the job?

If we can't get this sorted out how are to have confidence in them sorting this out.

4.) 29 Sep 2018 17:16:10
Completely agree Ed001.

The common denominator in our three post-Fergie appointments is that they are managers stuck in outdated styles. Moyes has been found out everywhere since he left Everton. Van Gaal was a spent force long before he came to us. And Jose isn’t able to adapt to a footballing world that has moved on from his glory days.

We need to look for a young manager with the drive, ambition and ideas to catch up with the best in Europe. I don’t know how much longer Jose will stay in a job but it’s painful to watch this inevitable implosion.

5.) 29 Sep 2018 17:16:21
Thanks Ed, in your opinion, do you think a director will be appointed before the summer window?

{Ed001's Note - normally I would say yes, but Woodward does not seem to have a clue what he is doing with the football side, so I don't know.}

6.) 29 Sep 2018 17:17:56
Zidane is exactly what woody will go for. Big name. But would it work?

7.) 29 Sep 2018 17:44:21
Woodward IS clueless, doesn't have a clue. And Sailor, Zidane is the only one available, out of a job but i wouldn't want him, interim: yes. But doubt he'd take the role for only 7/ 8 months of the season.

8.) 29 Sep 2018 17:51:36
Id go giggs as interim. Give us chance to plan for someone else if it doesn't work out.

9.) 29 Sep 2018 18:11:35
We still have a manager but today did feel like a watershed and it wouldn’t surprise me if the club made a decision. However, the idea of Zidane is poor and sounds like a name to suit the share price rather than the right manager of United. If and it is a big if United make a change now then I would go for Wenger as interim, if available until the end of the season.

10.) 29 Sep 2018 18:20:55
Hello ed001. I saw you mentioned there is a lot of money tied in Jose contact. I just wanted to ask if this would mean we are stuck with him how much ever the situation gets worse or things could change.

{Ed001's Note - it depends how bad things get. They don't want to pay it up unless they have to.}

11.) 29 Sep 2018 19:14:43
How does a termination of a contract work, as if a contract had to be paid in full then why terminate it . Can a manager who is removed from duties but still paid seek another job or could a club argue we are still paying him and he still has a contract unless a compromise is reached that means the club terminate the contract for an agreed settlement which will be at a saving to the amount owed but free the manager to seek other employment . The manager could always sit tight tho I suppose . Not sure how it works though if anyone has knowledge.

12.) 29 Sep 2018 19:16:07
Never said it before but Jose needs to be moved on.

The Jose and Pogba saga is dragging the team and the club through the dirt.
A united dressing room all playing for the manager would not be losing to West Ham and Brighton.

Yes we don’t have the players to match City and Liverpool but we have good players that are capable of sitting just below the top 2 and 3.

We need a DoF and then a head coach to take football matters totally away from Woodward.

13.) 29 Sep 2018 19:28:55
Laurent Blanc's available I think, (as well as Big Sam), might be an option if Mourinho goes, which I think he will now. Some very odd team tactics today, if you can call them that. There's no joy at all. Such dour, miserable football.
I was hoping Mourinho would get things right, get himself right but it looks beyond him and everything seems to be falling apart. Clubs a bit of a shambles at the moment though, so definitely not all his fault but he hasn't done himself any favours. Needs a good performance and result Tuesday or that could be that.

14.) 29 Sep 2018 18:39:48
Ed001, do you have any idea why they extended Jose’s contract earlier this year? Just seemed like a completely unnecessary thing to do.

{Ed001's Note - because Ed Woodward deemed it a good idea. I believe his intention was similar to the one that saw Ferguson backed in the early days, to send a signal to the players that the manager would be chosen over them.}

15.) 29 Sep 2018 18:55:03
Do you think Giggs would leave his post FZZ? Managing his country and it would only be on an interim basis? Also, just to confirm, Zorc is only leaving Dortmund when his contract expires, in 2021 Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I think so, though he might have a year option, I am not sure.}

16.) 29 Sep 2018 20:11:10
Doubt we'll have a director even in 2021 Ed, #ZidaneOut will be trending then 😂.

17.) 29 Sep 2018 20:36:50
Do you know, Ed001, if the contract extension was something José actively sought out, or was it all Woodward's idea? Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I don't actually know sorry. Probably better directing that at Ed002 mate. He might know.}

Young manager with modern ideas.

3 month injury, 3 weeks later KDB returns to training, how does that work out?


1.) 14 Sep 2018 20:27:49
Maybe Pep actually is god?

2.) 14 Sep 2018 22:03:17
Or Pep's "special" doctor is.

They've not done too badly without him.

4.) 15 Sep 2018 09:32:49
look into - Eufemiano Fuentes and Barcelona (the bit where they have some evidence but nothing happens is my favourite part)
Guidiola and his failed nandrolone tests.
Dr. Segura And his reappointment at Barcelona when pep took over.
Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, a chap with some very interesting techniques and a world leader in injury recovery got booted out of Bayern and replaced by a Pep doc who can improve injury times (I work in the medical sector, it’s not unreasonable to assume the use of a mix of stem cell, growth factors, growth hormones and anabolics)
Jose has actually inferred doping of peps teams whilst at Madrid.

I have read somewhere (might even have been an ed001 comment) that Germany omitted Sane from the World Cup squad as they had some concerns around treatment he had received and how that could play out when doping testing took place. We live in interesting times people. Not necessarily for the right reasons either.

How much difference a month makes, seemed like every man and his dog would back Pogba over Mourinho, thankfully that's changed. He struts around like he's Ronaldo and Messi combined into one, France won the WC and he's turned into the most arrogant player we've had at the club in a long long time. Have to say, i was slightly upset when Ed002 said the club are looking to sell him, but now i genuinely can't wait to see the back of him. No consistency in his game, flashes of brilliance justifies his price tag? Throws his arms up in the air whenever he loses the ball, has come out with controversial comments after both our wins this season, despite Jose giving him the captaincy against Leicester. A large large majority of fans, certainly on social media, have actually turned against him, far cry from a month ago.

Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - The termination clause relates to a one year extension to his existing contract not to either this season nor a new contract.}

Thank you Ed001 and 002 for taking out the time to provide us with this informtion, reassuring us makes us feel a lot better lol. i. e. still looking for a director = hope. Also, Monaco have played 10, Lost 7 and Drew 3 so maybe we could possible tempty Jardim though i remember Ed002 saying it would be difficult or unattainable, can't remember correctly. Ed001, there was talk of Alderweireld being available for £25m, do you know when that will be activated? (Providing he doesn't sign a new contract)


{Ed001's Note - I don't believe there is any such stipulation in his contract. It is not something Levy would allow normally.}

Also, what do you think of Eddie Howe Ed? Seen his name mentioned quite a bit recenty.


{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced by Howe personally. His teams' are inconsistent because he has no idea how to coach defence. He is another Roberto Martinez/Marco Silva - great when it works but all comes crashing down when things go against him. He is just lucky there not to have had a proper sticky patch, as he threw in the towel elsewhere when it happened.}

Waking up and seeing the red response from you gives me goosebumps Ed001, seriously lol. Do agree with you, it is Jose's fault, preventable issues etc but getting rid of him won't sort everything out. But one thing, what is the need for him to buy a house if he's the only one living in it? City centre apartment is actually more convenient for him?

Also, did you see Mbappe's 4 goal haul yesterday? Incredible player with an elite mentality; saying he should have got a few more lol.


{Ed001's Note - because buying a house would allow his family to come up and stay in Manchester from time to time and visit him. It wouldn't have to be a house, but I just meant all that time in the hotel was just saying I am not putting down roots.

I haven't seen Mbappe's goals yet.}

or are the Glazers looking to sell up or be open to a sale? should have sent it with the previous questions, my bad Ed.


{Ed002's Note - The club is not being offered for sale at this time.}

is there genuine interest from the Saudi Prince in buying Utd ED002 or is it just a false story/ rumour? (heard you have a strong form of telepathy)


{Ed002's Note - If the club were for sale there would be interest from a number of parties - but that would be entirely dependent on how it were to be sold, and critically what ever means would give the best return from the owners.}

On which planet could it have possibly been the worst FA Cup final performance ever? Staggering. We had enough chances to score more than one goal.

Haven't you heard that he's past it, crap, a dinosaur and out of his depth Ed002? Fickle.
