I've heard a rumour of garner to palace on loan, have any of the eds heard anything?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2022 21:01:13
Would make sense, they will be looking for a Gallagher replacement.

06 Aug 2022 15:12:00
Personally would like him to stay and see what part he can play in the midfield rotation. The high energy press from EtH will need more than just the first 11 to be successful. That being said if he does go out I have no problem with his next stage of development under Viera at Palace.

06 Aug 2022 23:36:17
Brad, I really like the look of Garner. That said he should only stay of he's going to play.

At this point in his career he cannot afford to be 4th or 5th choice playing 800 minutes a season.

To continue his development and have a chance of reaching his potential he needs to be playing 2000-3000 minutes of football.

If EtH wants to play him and thinks he can play at the club to the standard needed then great.

However, if Fred, McTominay, Eriksen, Donny and a potential new signing will all feature ahead of him then send the lad out on loan.

05 Aug 2022 08:22:23
Hey Ed's and everyone out there. Just a quick one about Amine Gouiri - have we any interest? 22, versatile and a forward. Reportedly available for around 40million.

{Ed002's Note - None. He will be moving elsewhere.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2022 09:52:23
Thanks a million Ed. Just getting panicky at this stage.

05 Aug 2022 13:11:00
Getting bit panicky here too as we desperately need a striker…

RUMOURS suggest that Joel Glazer is blocking Ronaldos exit (obvious commercial value, most important thing to JG allegedly) which then has a knock on on effect for any incoming striker targets who won’t want to play second fiddle to CR (ie Sesko) plus paying his huge wages impacting on finances for another striker.

Ideally, CR woukd have left, freeing up his wages to sign another striker and allowing incoming to be enticed by being main forward Manchester United not run on sensible footballing decisions nowadays.

Maybe there’s a decent striker out there who’s cheap and doesn’t mind being back up….

Ighalo anyone?!

{Ed014's Note - has it got to the palpable stage yet? The panic that is!

05 Aug 2022 13:49:00
To be honest if JG is refusing to sanction Ronaldo's departure then the solution is simple. Refuse to play him.

See how beneficial Ronaldo is to the commercial value when he's sitting in the stands and all the bad press that will be around because of it.

Pretty sure Ronaldo in the stands would tank the share price and impact comment revenue far more than him leaving.

05 Aug 2022 13:58:20
Ronaldo has only ever looked out for ronaldo. should never have been brought back and now his circus is ramping up to the max. I hope Eth is back in this situation, weather that is getting rid, or being aloud to bench him as much as he sees fit. Hopefully it's getting rid.

05 Aug 2022 14:29:15
Think he’s staying Roon…

Just hope he doesn’t blunt new pressing/ playing style.

Guess it’s moments like these where all the new experienced coaches (ETZh, MVG, SMc, ER, Benni, Fletch lol) will eat their keep.

05 Aug 2022 16:24:54
We should be aiming to have Ronaldo gone in the next couple of weeks, but looks like he is going to end up staying.

Despite this, there is no chance at all of him being a bit part player if he does stay. He's our best player. Suddenly hoping Ronaldo is benched or dropped entirely to have Martial take his place is also a weird one as Martial was desperate to leave earlier this year and he'd be the one taking his place. Ronaldo's behaviour can probably be labeled disrespectful to the club but you can't accuse him of lacking professionalism in terms of his dedication to his sport, Martial has had that criticism of him for the last few years.

05 Aug 2022 20:13:55
You know the saying, you should never go back to you ex. If she cheated on you once she will do it again and here we are. Let him leave free up wages and move on.

05 Aug 2022 22:26:00
Rj he’s bottled out of the whole of pre season so you can stop blowing smoke up his backside.

05 Aug 2022 22:54:49
Why’s everyone panicking? let ETH do the panicking and just enjoy the season, noting we can do about, never has been so just back the manager. If he was signing Benni Macarthy to be out starting number 9 then maybe I’d be a bit concerned (although there could be worse) and as for Glazer blocking Ronaldo’s departure, i’m fairly confident it’s Ronaldo’s and his agents demands/expectations that are blocking any move.

04 Aug 2022 16:54:36
Hi Ed,
Have any clubs shown interest in Lindelof?

{Ed002's Note - Victor Lindelof (CM) Mr mourinho sees value in the player but perhaps not at an acceptable price.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2022 22:20:05
Good evening Ed, just a quick question if u don't mind?! Are the club now looking a ziyech? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any=y approach to Chelsea at this time, but obviously EtH knows the player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2022 09:04:08
Ziyech could be a sensible move if Antony is proving too expensive/ difficult.

He knows EtH and his system/ style of play.

He knows the EPL and shouldn't take time to adjust to playing for us.

He wouldn't cost a huge fee, potentially leaving more in the kitty to spend elsewhere.

While I also think his age (29) is a positive. He would add experienced to a young side, while not being a long term road block on path into the first team for the likes of Garnacho, Elanga, Shoretire, Amad and Pellistri. Allowing several of them to go out on loan and gain the experience they need to come back and make that step up into the first team.

04 Aug 2022 09:17:01
Would be a positive acquisition, if true. Would have him on the left wing in the mould of tadic for Ajax.

04 Aug 2022 09:17:41
Personally I feel it is a poor signing. A short term solution that will cause us problems in the future if we are trying to move him on and replace him with the right player. As I don’t see us giving him a one year contract.
It’s a panic buy regardless of his affiliation with ETH. Too often we don’t wait for the player we actually need. I would rather see some of our young players given the opportunity. You would have to feel bad for them if the manager brought in a Chelsea outcast instead of giving them a chance.

04 Aug 2022 09:19:05
I don't think the Chelsea fans rate him but I think he'd be a solid pursuit, maybe as an alternative to Antony who is looking less likely. The Utd premium tax seems to go up by the day.

04 Aug 2022 10:10:35
I don't think it will be a bad signing.
You look at the stats, Ziyech and Antony look similar. 29 is not old.
Also if ETH thinks he will play well, let's get him.
Abraham and Tomori improved when they left Chelsea.
If ETH wants Ziyech, I hope the board are not against it. ETH needs to be backed.

{Ed001's Note - have you watched Ziyech play? He is like a lazier, worse Mahrez mate. Avoid like the plague, he is simply not that good.}

04 Aug 2022 10:26:06
Salah and De Bruyn were turdesque at Chelsea too to be fair.

04 Aug 2022 10:26:44
Agreed Ed001, Ziyech a disaster. Ironic, because Rohan is the exact type of fan that would be calling for his head.

04 Aug 2022 10:51:27
He has been nothing but underwhelming since he came to the premier league.

For a wide man, i don't think i have ever seen him beat his opposition full back

Also he has this tendency to just hoof the ball into the box in the name of creativity or shoot from ridiculous angles that have little chance of coming off. We already have Bruno doing that, don't need another player.

04 Aug 2022 13:05:04
If it means not having to watch Elanga, I’d take it!

04 Aug 2022 13:32:49
Thanks for the reply Ed, much appreciated as always ?.

04 Aug 2022 16:42:41
Would rather sign nobody if we can't get Antony. Keep Sancho right and give the rest of the game time to garnacho and amad. They need it.

04 Aug 2022 17:10:57
Agree angel agree red whiskey.

04 Aug 2022 22:40:31
Ah have we decided Elanga isn’t good enough now? Bring kids through then slate them after a season in a poor team.

05 Aug 2022 08:38:00
Don't see the slating of elanga. Still an unknown quantity. He may turn out to be a good little player, he may not. Still rather blood him than buy ziyech. He's been dreadful at Chelsea. Elanga has shown early promise.

05 Aug 2022 08:50:49
GDS2 - TBF Elanga hasn't done anything to prove he's good enough and deserve to be around the first team.

I think he wouldn't be around first team if it wasn't because of lack of depth.

Just like Amad and Pellestri I don't think they're ever going be good enough for Man Utd.

05 Aug 2022 09:36:41
Short memories at times on players.

Elanga came in and made an impact last season, but then as the form fell completely off a cliff he was run into the ground. He is a very talented kid and while he may not go on and be a world beater, he adds some value to the squad and let's see where he ends up in a couple of years. He has some good attributes that if developed could see a pretty good player.

05 Aug 2022 10:02:43
GDS, who's slating Elanga?

I like him and this attitude, I do wonder whether he has the skills suited to EtH's more cerebral style. He does seem to suit a more simplistic counter attacking approach. However, we'll only know if he's given the chance.

The issue is that about whether Elanga gets a chance.

It's about squad depth. Currently Elanga is the third most experienced option to be play in the wide areas.

He is 20 years old with less than 2000 minutes in the senior team, which equates to around 21 full games.

If either Rashford or Sancho get injured then then Elanga starts and has to play the whole 90 minutes more of less.

If one of Sancho or Rashford are struggling for form than Elanga is the first option to replace them.

Beyond Elanga we have Amad who has failed to make an impact either with us in his limited minutes or on loan with Rangers. Pellistri who has also not torn it up on loan. Or a recently turned 18 year old Garnacho.

I'd expect one of not both of Amad and Pellistri to head out on loan. Leaving just Elanga and Garnacho as back up to Rashford and Sancho.

Realistically we need another senior option in the wide areas. Especially given Rashford's poor form and injury record over the past 18 months.

If we have some decent cup runs, especially in the Europa League then we could play as many as 60 games this season. That equates to around 5400 minutes of football.

Players typically play 2500-3500 minutes a season. More than that risks fatigue and injury.

If Rashford and Sancho can play 7000 minutes between them in the two wide roles that still leaves 3800 minutes to be picked up by other wide options. As I've said Elanga managed just under 2000 minutes last season. Could he double that game time this season?

We need 4 maybe even 5 viable wide options in our squad, with all of them picking up between 2000-3000 minutes.

Currently we have two options, a kid with less than 2000 minutes under his belt (Elanga) and a younger kid with 15 minutes of senior football under his belt (Garnacho) .

05 Aug 2022 11:33:53
It’s very simple. Both Elanga and Ziyech aren’t good enough in my eyes. You can look into it as much as you like, but the facts are there for all to see.

06 Aug 2022 13:30:40
Sorry firemanc but your opinion does not constitute as fact.

06 Aug 2022 19:54:07
Wasn't Ziyech a problem behind the scenes at Ajax, seem to remember it coming up before Chelsea signed him, if so that's the last thing we need.

03 Aug 2022 12:19:25
Hi Ed002,
Have United had a bid accepted for Benjamin Sesko?
Do you think the player is ready for the step up.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any agreement.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2022 17:07:02
Utd today/ tomorrow

Meeting Barcelona and also Frankie agent along with Chelsea.

Meeting sesko agent again.

Have asked Chelsea about ziyech situation.

Are trying to move on a few.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2022 19:56:35
What's the point in mmeting his agent when he has been clear he doesn't want 5o come to us?

03 Aug 2022 20:23:27
Because everyone has a price.

03 Aug 2022 20:26:30
Free lunch I guess Tony.

03 Aug 2022 21:52:59
ridiculous - wasted so much time on him - Sangare/ ruiz/ SMS all are available- 2 of them with known buy out clauses.2 out of those 3 would be far better and cost less than in salaries combined than FDJ.

03 Aug 2022 21:59:14
If FDJ ends up in Chelsea after everything, it will be huge embarrassment for Arnold and Murtough. If that happens, they should be forced out of the club.

03 Aug 2022 22:19:04
Watch chelsea have this wrapped up by the weekend, wouldn’t surprise me. I don’t understand the insistence on this transfer, I get ETH wants him but surely he has others in mind too. This should have been wrapped up or forgotten a month ago. It’s being used as an excuse for lack of other deals also which is laughable, nobody seems to have heard of multi tasking.

03 Aug 2022 22:25:23
Boyfromburrenway you seem to know so much than the manager,

03 Aug 2022 23:09:15
H94, all Murtough and Arnold have done is what the manager want's. FDJ is the the foundation upon which ETH wants to build our future and they have delivered an agreement with his club to enable this to take place.
It seems that the manager is the one who is keen to continue the attempt to complete the transfer and the club are, rightly, doing everything to try and deliver on his wishes. ETH is supposedly in contact with FDJ and apparently knows the reality of the situation.
I can imagine the reaction on here if it came out that the club was not doing all it could to get the No 1 target of ETH.

04 Aug 2022 09:19:00
It's sad fans just need to see shiny new tools in the club, irrespective of what the manage wants.

04 Aug 2022 09:41:13
We’ve seen the current tools. We’ve seen most of them for 3 or more years. They’re not shiny and won’t ever be.
Some shiny new tools are needed.

02 Aug 2022 11:48:32
Outs are the focus at the moment, so here are the outs and interested clubs as I understand it currently in order of likely next club

1. Tuanzebe- Trabzonspor, Brighton, Bournemouth
2. Bailly- Sevilla, Roma, Villareal
3. Telles- Napoli, Sevilla, Bournemouth
4. Williams- Bournemouth, Brighton, Newcastle, Stuttgart
5. DC United, Fulham, Leeds, Accrington Stanley (joking)
6. Wan Bissaka- Atletico, Fulham, Crystal Palace, Fenerbache
7. Ronaldo- Sporting, Atletico, PSV.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2022 13:04:32
We definitely need to shift most if not all of those players out of the Club but who’s coming in?!

The season starts in less than 7 days and the focus this week is on moving players out when we’ve only signed a back up left back, CB and free transfer!

It looks almost certain that we will start the season with Maguire and Lindelof at CB and McFred in midfield. I don’t care how good people think EtH is that gives me nightmares.

02 Aug 2022 13:32:58
Outs are hugely important Cheshire.
The sooner we get shut of those above the better.
It looks like Shaw maguire lindelof Fred mactom martial and rash have escaped the cull this time.
I hope they do better under eth.
I hope this news is more accurate than your ole predictions.
Another new begining, I'm optimistic that eth will make good strides.
At least he is a proper coach.

02 Aug 2022 16:06:45
He can be the best coach that’s ever lived, but you can’t polish a turd.

02 Aug 2022 16:49:24
Wes Morgan won a title as capitan. I think you can polish a turd just not 10 turds fireman C.

02 Aug 2022 16:59:44
All of those 7 need to go IMO but not all going to happen this window.

We desperately need a minimum of 3, maximum of 5 incomings too.

Can’t quite believe we’re actually going to start the season with the quartet of Maguire, Lindelof, Fred and McTominay - absolutely embarrassing by the club.

02 Aug 2022 17:16:00
There is something happening with Telles this afternoon but it's Sevilla who look like they've agreed terms.

02 Aug 2022 20:52:26
Cheshire, who do you genuinely believe will JOIN United before the end of the window?

02 Aug 2022 21:23:30
I don’t think Fred has done bad pre season also Martinez looks very good I think him and Maguire will be partners. I’m not convinced varane is the answer either we need a top quality CB to partner Martinez.

03 Aug 2022 00:10:04
Cheshire, I was hoping whatever contacts you had at the club would have been culled by now. Your post about Ole needing 5 years and then would dominate for a decade was worrying if it came from people within the club.

Anyways, thanks for the updates. Keep them coming.

03 Aug 2022 01:09:02
What if maguire, lindelof, fred and McTom start the first few games and we win all of them?

Our rebuild runs a lot deeper than all 4 of these players, and they all have something to offer this squad for at least the next 12 months.

Martinez will probably be given a little time to settle in to life in the uk.

Martinez and erikssen likely to be in the first team sooner rather than later, even if they don't start game 1.

03 Aug 2022 21:29:15
There is no long term future for any player who does not step up this season. The pressure is on them, not Ten Hag. You can't swap 25 players in 1 window. The assumptions that the ones staying are trusted valued and wanted is just that, an assumption. They're less problematic than the ones who killed the dressing room, other than Rashford (, well his big mouth brother and his best pal) and Bailly. Henderson Pogba and Lingard were the other rubbish stirrers. Good riddance to the lot of em.

Ins, I honestly don't know for sure. We upped our upfront money to Barcelona by 9million euros to Cover half of the money owed to De Jong after Barcelona agreed to mat h that and pay him before the USA trip, but Laporta is a 2 faced ****er, kept himself at distance and sent his sporting director with promises not kept on resolving quickly with the player, though they did at least play him out of position and have made clear he won't be centre back either after Kounde. Being threatened with playing left back now.

Chelsea isn't a shoe in at all, just because they have ECL for 1 season. They ****ed Saul if you recall, played him everywhere bar his natural slot, that was well reported in Spain.

The player has been telling ETH that if he has to leave Barca, he is open to the move but he will leave them under duress. Not wanting to leave is not the same as not open to joining at all. He is no fool, if he had said I can see where this is heading, make me the linchpin and I join, he would be 17m out of pocket. So the truth is somewhere in a shade of grey between the alleged black and white positions.

E eryone who has met and been 'on the receiving end' of ETH so far that I speak to are all unified in the belief that he is no fool, and we would have mo Ed on long ago if he didn't know something that only even he may know, I don't know, it's third hand info, so take that in a measured way.

They now agree he has no future in midfield and will be treated as Atletico treated Saul. They want him out, he wants his money Laporta tried to avoid paying his share of the 17m, hence why this has dragged on. As for us buying Dest, I really doubt we will ever deal with Barcelona again whilst Laporta is there after he leaked the restaurant they were eating at. The guys is a snake and frankly they make us look well run.

Despite all the reassurances, I just feel we are being used, I think the meeting between us and him and Ali Dosun is to help us save face and move on.

That in mind, I think we will sign Sangare, Antony and SMS and possibly Dumfries.

There is a marked hange in the lab though gossip is not just squashed in the dressing room, there are only 3 people who know anything at all about the genuine discussions from the shortlists and they aren't giving other staff updates or insights until deals are practically agreed. David Gill is mentoring Arnold and Murtough on silent transfers.

Yet another start from scratch scenario.

Oh and Ken, it's a rumours site. I was wrong on Haaland only because the squad did exactly what Roy Keabe predicted. I won't tell you why I was so sure, other than it was first hand info, direct info and an agreement. None of you knew about Raiola being ill, yet I repeTwdly said that his agent relationship won't be relevant at all, he fought hard but that's why he was so brutal the last few years he knew from 2019 he was on borrowed time. No one an be right on a rumours site all the time or try to be, but turn it in eh? You do more u-turns than a tory minister Nd more flip flopping than a beach full of epileptic seals. Have a word with yourself eh and let's all be ni e to e h over this season. I'm kind of sick of the social media style comes of a lot of posters. Each to their own and let's plan for the worst and hope for the best. But remember we all want the same thing.

Every one of the current squad for outs is a marked man, the 2 CBs, lindelof and maguire, Shaw, Martial, Fred, Mactominay, Rashford Ronaldo Martial and even Bruno, who has been told to shut up and let his feet talk. So, they definitely know it. I can't wait to see the entire squad changed within 2 or 3 years, I would not keep a single one of them, what they did last year was disgusting. There are people in the club who believe and entire new squad throughout is the only way to rid the club of the attitude problems of last year, so e for last year's new arrivals who remained aloof. Sancho even distanced himself from Rashford, a smart move.

I have very low expectations of results this season. The fo us is definitely on winning and effort, you go missing in a game you won't be picked again. You have a stinker, u are dropped for the next game. Simple leadership along with quality ad ice leadership and Coaching, something dramatically missing for the past 8 or 9 years.

Who knows, we could see an amazing result and FDJ Sesko SMS Antony and Pavard may still arrive. I wouldn't hold out much hope though.

04 Aug 2022 07:24:28
Thanks Cheshire, really interesting read.

04 Aug 2022 07:52:57
Coaching missing for last 8 or 9 years. You were saying the complete opposite at the beginning of last season Cheshire.
The posts are there I won't embarrass you by putting them up.
I was not referring to haaland.
Everybody knows we had no chance with him ever except yourself.

04 Aug 2022 09:52:45
David Gill mentoring Arnold and Murtaugh, my god lol.

What is this thing where we always hark back to the past. Break away from it please and get competent guys in to do their job.

Gill was lucky IMO to be in there when Fergie was there, he made everyone look like a genius. Had EW been there at that time, it would've been the same.

Gill made a mess of an awful lot of transfers but he was blessed to have a man like Ferguson there.

This club needs to break from sentiment and get the right football people in. We have the coach, go get the right DOF next.

04 Aug 2022 13:02:59
Ken and Mumbles

You guys really remind me of my ex wife.

1. doesn't matter how often I am right, your tiny brain ensures you keep reminding me of the time I was wrong
2. I am the one making all the running and the effort, you guys do jack rubbish but want to be the experts when never putting your own heads on the block
3. I have enjoyed being kicked in the bollocks more than I enjoy hearing from you.
4. You are to happiness what King Herod was to Babysitting
5. You take my words, reinvent them to what you want them to mean, then bitch to everyone. I dare you to find this so called comment re my assertions you both keep wittering on about like a pair of simpletons
6. And this is my favourite. I can walk away and not have to respond. so, waffle away and act like the self congratulatory negative smug but sad never happys. people get things wrong in business, life, relationships, you seem very bitter and jealous and take great delight in trying to abuse me when I speak on things. You really should find another target, because I am a nice guy, and try to play fair, but keep coming, and I will reluctantly lose my rubbish with you and hit back in a very brutal way. pack it in and grow up the pair of you. by all means have your say, but you are crossing a line and I am not having it.

04 Aug 2022 13:52:08
Good man Cheshire. ??? I'd enjoy being kicked in the bollox more than I enjoy your posts.
I'm sure your a very nice guy just not very accurate with your predictions or info. I'm sure your only passing on what your told but it's been so so inaccurate for last few years that it's coming from a questionable source i'd suggest or maybe it was a dream. ???.

04 Aug 2022 19:17:55
Name them Ken, u muppet. You talk a lot of bollocks. I'm right way more often than wrong, I mostly caveat and you are very picky with what you choose to remember I have said

I invite you to detail the comments and the players you attribute to me.

Stop chipping and start evidencing. You're a keyboard mushroom. It's like a keyboard warrior, only with no guts or weaponry, constantly in the dark and full of rubbish.

05 Aug 2022 12:08:26
Upamancano Saul rice bissouma haaland all predictions that were never coming.
Here is your view on ole the worst manager in recent history and half the man dave sexton was
Don't forget little man call me kermit who was a good muppet.
Back into your little dream world of self importance dunce.
Your words at the begining of last season below. How did the whole ole will dominate for years prediction fare out. You are a complete bull merchant with no substance and no grasp of reality.
A phenomenal window. I wonder how many posters would genuinely be bemoaning what was not achieved if at the end of last season you were told you can have Ronaldo, Sancho and Varane to strengthen 3 of 4 positions we wanted to.

2. The DM target list was essentially Rice, Rice or Rice, given we had 3 other prospects, Bissouma, who needs another season to prove himself beyond a one season wonder, or backtrack on his assertions he was not going to play for Mali which would be a negative in joining the ACON mid season, Camavinga who was a genuine 2nd choice but quickly made clear he wanted only Madrid and Saul who sadly, simply did not want the role Utd were looking for. We are committed to resolving this next summer, or, unlikely as it is, in January.

3. Ole after 100 games in charge is the second most successful manager in Utd history and the most successful since the second World War. In respect of wins and points scored. I do recall 2 years ago despite his successful half season fans were stating he could never attract world class talent in the same way as world class renowned managers like Mourinho and Van Gaal. I wonder about that view as of this summer also.

05 Aug 2022 19:33:36
Cheshire, there is nothing wrong in accepting you were mostly incorrect on Ole, his expected decade of domination and player recruitment.

Someone must have messed up with you with a lot of false information being passed.

02 Aug 2022 10:35:16
Good morning Ed.
Which players are the club currently trying to sign?
Could you provide a list please? Interested to know who the priorities are.
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I am not providing any lists now. The players have mainly been mentioned.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2022 11:17:20
That’s such a shame. Thanks for the replay.

02 Aug 2022 16:08:14
I thought the Ed’s replied……. didn’t know they did replays as well!
