Inter bid 54m for Lukaku.
Laughable bid.

I don't get it they have been told numours times how much we value him just like we were with wan bissaka

And eventually got the deal done.

Martin Samuel on Twitter this morning slating Duncam Castles saying he has no contacts and just makrs stuff up.

Why has he been picked out? This is what they all do. Then other papers and journos start "it's being reported that. " and so the nonsense magnifies.
Stick with Ed002 and ignore the rest.

Is it going to be a case of Matic out and Matuidi in?

According to L Equipe, Pogba is still waiting calmly for his transfer to Real. Should we take them seriously? Usually they re quite reliable, no?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

19 Jul 2019 19:28:00
Id say he is nowhere near as calm as he was. Real can't shift players and are not coming up with the cash we want.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 22:21:49
Who actually cares? You wake up worrying if Pogba will leave or not?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 05:42:31
As I said before neither Real or Juve can afford Pogba right now.

New CB link -Mirah Demiral who just signed for Juventus. Probably Bs.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

19 Jul 2019 16:41:37
Just signed for them and linked with us?

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 17:27:44
Apparently they bought him to loan him out again because with DeLigt, Bonucci, Chellini it's going to be difficult for him.
BTW his idol is Vidic. :)

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 18:31:42
Mine's Roy Keane. Sign me up.

Agree6 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 19:33:56
Ed002 says not for sale and him and deligt are expected to be the new cb pairing for juve st the beginning of 20/ 21 season.
I know little or nothing of him but juve do know how to pick and mould a cb.
Juve still want pogba but want to include players in the deal.
Im not sure i fancy any of the names on the list for our squad with the exception of kean who is likely to go elsewhere.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 20:46:11
Rumour that AC Milan are in for Bailly, how likely is this if Maguire arrives?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

18 Jul 2019 22:09:52
I hope Bailly doesn’t leave, he’s worth giving a chance for another season.

Agree11 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 22:11:52
Send them Rojo on the sly.

Agree6 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 06:31:53
We have Lindelof as first choice, a new CB needs to come definitely, and my third choice would be Tuanzebe as he has deserved a run out in the team.
I thinking going with 5 CBs in a season is decent backup.
I would only keep 2 of Jones, Smalling, Bailly and Rojo now.
And when an offer comes for any one of them we should cut him loose.
5 CBs, AWB, Dalot, Young and Shaw is decent cover for a season. Then there are young players in the academy we could use if more people get injured.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 07:10:49
Smalling and Tuanzebe should be ahead of Bailly.

He’s had his chance, he’s not good enough and he’s caused problems in the dressing room.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 07:54:48
Would rather jones and rojo go although I think rojo is going to be 2nd choice left back to shaw


Can only see darmian leaving out of any of them.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 08:52:29
Jones and Rojo.

Jones is slow lack technique and has been at the club longer than he deserves.

Rojo is that wild he belongs in a Zoo.

Bailly deserves another chance after Mourinho wrecked his confidence.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 09:46:48
Wazza,

Has Bailly caused problems in the dressing room?

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 11:01:01
Same question as Mad Hatter from me please Wazza.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 11:02:50
Having doubts that we will get the Maguire transfer over the line. I hope we get it done, I think he will make a massive improvement to our defence. It will be good to get a settled back line of AWB, Lindelof, Maguire and Shaw.
Get Fernandes and maybe another midfielder like Longstaff in and that will be a very good window for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 12:29:26
MH, yes under Mourinho.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 12:42:01
Really don’t get people saying Smalling is our 3rd or 4th choice defender. He’s by far our worst! His passing is dreadful, his heading is shocking and my grandma who is six feet under has better positional sense. Promoted way above his ability. He should never have left non-league!

Bailly is ten times better. People slate him based on one game against PSG when he was picked at RIGHT back!

I’d rather play Jones than Smalling! For me Rojo and Smalling should be the 2 defenders out the door! But maybe that’s just me.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 12:56:12
Bailly would be my 3rd choice and Smalling 4th choice.
Rojo is a walking red card.
Jones can hardly play a quarter of a season without getting injured.
Tuanzebe needs an EPL loan to progress.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 14:31:57
I'd get rid of all four of them to be honest over the next three windows counting this one.

Bed in Maguire/ whoever and Tuanzebe this season, sell two of them. Then next summer sell the other two and look for signing.

For those who watch the academy are there any other centre back prospects?

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 16:41:52
Mort not really anyone outstanding. Actually last year the younger teams shipped a few goals but I think that was not just down to the defenders but to a lack of midfield quality too.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 21:47:20
I have no idea what Lindelof has done to justify all the praise he gets.
Imo - and will be massively unpopular - but Smalling has been best centre half last 2 seasons. I would get rid of Jones and Bailly. If Rojo stays fit offers much needed cover at LB.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 02:46:19
Lindelof has been r best defender by a mile last season! We need a experienced head beside him to Marshall the defence! Tobi from spurs makes sense low transfer fee, give him his big wages it's only for 3 yrs we'll have a chance to see if r youth r good enough or to see how r scouted players turn out!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 05:46:15
Wazza you still haven't explained how. Throwing statements doesn't justify the veracity of the said words.

What did he do to cause problems in the dressing room during Mourinho's reign?

I'm sure a lot of people would like a bite of your "exclusive"

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 10:51:19
Yaz there is nothing exclusive here. It was said last season that Bailly was part of the problem with Mourinho, as were other players. It was said on here many months ago, I can’t remember who by.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:33:49
Bailey pissed Jose off as he wouldn't play when injured. Never heard a thing about him rubbing people the wrong way Wazza.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 18:03:44
Question for 002 if you have the time, do you expect a transfer for Bruno Fernandes to happen? Seemingly gone quiet.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - If the club offer a suffient deal. Then yes.}

18 Jul 2019 18:27:12
ED02 - have we actually made an offer for Fernandes yet and if do you know how far apart we are in valuations of the player.

Many thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in trying to give blow-by-blow updates.}

18 Jul 2019 18:53:34
OK no problem ED02. Thanks for your input as always. Are you still travelling and if so when do you think you will have time for a Sharkopod and which team will be first up?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I will be flying to England for a few days only late tomorrow - then away again. Liverpool will be first and Everton second.}

18 Jul 2019 21:30:02
Ok cool. Thanks ed. i will listen to them first then. Safe travels.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jul 2019 21:52:49
I would be amazed if Fernandes comes - everytime i read about it a bid is about to be made. Has went on too long. My money would be on Matuidi with a deal for Pogba to go back to Juve in a years time.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:14:48
I was wondering how easy some of our supporters think it is to complete a transfer? I am no expert and presume that those on frees are simple, you just agree terms with the player and that's it. I can also presume that those that hand in a request are a bit easier, in that you approach the club for permission to talk to the player and if they want to sell they grant it and you agree terms with both the player and selling club. It has to be so hard with a club who don't want to sell, you can approach and make an offer, they can accept or decline your offer, you then have to speak to the player and his bloody agent and agree terms. Most players we are after I think have not handed in requests to leave, so it becomes a long bargaining session to see if you can meet the selling clubs valuation and also agree terms with a player? I think I am right Ed 002 will probably tell me I am mad

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - it is not like that for those “Frees”

17 Jul 2019 18:42:23
Thanks, how hard is it for those out of contract and on a "free"? I only ask as some people on here are demanding to know why and when we are signing players without knowing what it actually takes.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Stuff like this needs to happen and plenty of payments need to be made.
(a) Paperwork including obtaining International Clearance and Work Permits if necessary.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the Premier League. This eill be based on the assigned value of the transfer fee.
(c) Tax due on the assigned value of the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents (as an example, Liverpool spent £44M plus VAT on agent fees (nearly double the next highest) last season alone).
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Solidarity and Training Contributions (this can be significant payments paid based on the assigned transfer fee to clubs you may never of heard of).
(n) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (usually waived).}

17 Jul 2019 19:43:04
Are there any decent football documentaries showing behind the scenes of a transfer. Geeky I know but I would find it fascinating to watch.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Quite frankly, of course not.}

17 Jul 2019 19:43:49
Thanks Ed002, now some of our supporters may see the reason why we have just not signed a player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - To be fair they are far from the brightest.}

17 Jul 2019 20:31:11
And some people think you are a journalist 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Many say I am a simple singer songwriter that came out of Laurel Canyon in the early 70s. Others say, I played for Arsenal, Everton and Millwall before a successful career in the Medical Law (specialising in left knees). Some even say it was my fadget design that was used in the patent for tentafere that led to air traffic control over Lake Havasu City being lost for 40 minutes on Christmas Eve 2014. Many finally figured out I am a tubby kid from Bolton.}

17 Jul 2019 21:43:11
Ed002, if they read this they might shut up about asking about player x and y?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I think Player Y will sign Friday.}

17 Jul 2019 21:51:32
You‘re asking for trouble there Ed 😂

Thanks a lot for the insight.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 21:56:24
oh, I had player Y as Bale, you sure it's not X?

I have now worked out the identity of Ed 002 and the truth is stranger than fiction. We are so so lucky. Thanks Ed.

I was wondering how easy some of our supporters think it is to complete a transfer?

not as easy as the fifa players and football manager people think but still slightly alarmed that Barcelona can get Griezmann, Real can get Hazard, militao, Mendy and jovic, West ham can get Haller and we can't get a kid from Newcastle despite the fact he would sell his own nan for a fiver lol

Greenwood and Chong are looking decent though so maybe we don't need lots of new signings.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jul 2019 21:14:03
When I read Ed02's juicier responses I immediately think of him as a middle aged female librarian on HRT and wondering where her life has gone. 💋💋💋.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Obviously I don’t ride a Vincent HRT. I have a Vincent Black Lightning 1952.}

18 Jul 2019 21:46:23
I thought that was a marital aid.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Sure great for picking up ginger haired chicks.}

19 Jul 2019 11:38:40
Looked up Laurel Canyon Ed - sure was a crazy time late 60s/ early 70s! Did you get to hang with Crosby, Stills, Nash, Joplin etc?!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I was there with my girlfriend for the lost summer of 1974 in the Hollywood Hills with the Source Family and then in Laurel Canyon.}

19 Jul 2019 13:48:36
Thanks Ed002: I've just read about the Source family, Father Yod, Yahowa 13 - and much more - and, as Seagull alludes to above, that's some life you've experienced so far. We really are lucky to have you on this site; I've no doubt that every minute of your time is precious. Would be intrigued to know how you've ended up being so omniscient about all football matters though - surely the capitalist market forces that fuel the rivers of money involved in the game - plus the instant gratification culture that drives both players and fans - contradict the Source family/ Laurel Canyon beliefs about life? (Please forgive me for this rhetorical question - just really fascinated by all the things I've read! )

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The Canyon was very laid back for the few months we were there but a lot of folks were pretty strung out. The Source Family were preparing to head for pastures new and the restaurant was attracting a lot of vagrants (we had nothing to do with the restaurant). There was a lot of music being recorded at the time by the Source Family and Father Yod’s daughter was born when we were there. There were a huge number of tapes recorded but I don’t know what happened to them.}

19 Jul 2019 15:21:51
Thanks for sharing your fascinating life Ed002. Looks like the Source family headed off to a mixed reception in Hawaii! The restaurant looks like it was the place to be though. The music seems really eclectic and, maybe under another more established name such as Jefferson Airplane, would have gained more commercial success. Shame so much was lost. Thanks again for sharing Ed - much more interesting than surviving the jungle that is comprehensive school everyday here in the UK!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Currently flying over the Med. I originally came to England to do a masters degree in London. I know some of the albums have been re-issued.}

17 Jul 2019 14:51:34
If we going to sign Maguire is best to do it as soon as possible and have him on the squead this week so the club can focus on the next signing ( hopefully a midfielder) then a right winger. we need to speed up the process, this new players need to gel with the rest of the squad specially players coming from other leagues.

Believable2 1Unbelievable

17 Jul 2019 15:12:53
I'm sure everybody involved with the transfer is aware of that. These things take time. It's not like buying a packet of fags.

We should take however long is needed to get the best deal for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 15:33:08
still 3 weeks to go. we want the right deals nothing needs to be rushed.

we could have the perfect window if reports are to be true

wan bissaka
maguire
savic
bruno
james
and dave signing a new deal

and possibly longstaff

if come the end of the window with all of the above we would have improved the team massively

im still expecting some players to go.

im not sure we will go for a RW this window and i don't think we would replace lukaku

and if pogba goes we need another cm.

Agree4 3Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:43:44
Must admit, I was a bit surprised to see him come on for Leicester in their latest friendly. I know Leicester can't be expected to put everything on hold just for our benefit, but maybe it's not quite as close as we thought.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:51:45
Wazza's not bought a pack of ciggies for awhile. You now need photo i'd with proof of age, a doctors note, and to sign 67 page disclaimer in triplicate.

Reports saying that Neymar has offered himself to Juve, Man Utd, Bayern and Real Madrid.
I would love it if there were no takers!

Believable5 7Unbelievable

17 Jul 2019 13:21:24
Seems like a negotiation tool to push the Barcelona sale on in my opinion, as good a player he is we don't need another diva in the changing room Lingard and Pogba are more enough in itself! and who's to say we don't break the bank on him for him to repeat the same he's done with PSG, let's get Maguire, Bruno and Milinkovic-Savic over the line!

Agree10 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 14:15:29
Maguire, Bruno and Savic sounds right to me!

Agree3 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 14:18:01
I wouldn't be surprised to see him have a season away from PSG on loan .

17 Jul 2019 14:23:20
I agree Harry.

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Jul 2019 14:52:28
By “I’d love it if there were no takers” I mean no one shows any interest us included.

He is the last player I would want at United.

2 words I have to say to Near

1 begins with 'F' the other is 'off'

Poison. wouldn't take the Shyster on a free.

Someone needs to bring him down a peg or 2.

Do other Ballon D'Or winners act like this.

Ronaldo, Messi, would they act in this manner.

The guy is simply a man child.

Couldn’t agree more Ken.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:54:30
I don't even think he's really that talented. Everytime I watch one if his games he's too busy rolling around. When did you last see him actually use his talent. Also both messi and Ronaldo can be petulant as well. Just neymar goes the next level.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 19:45:46
Neymar isn't suited to the Premier league, best he goes back to Spain.
