Milinković Savic rumours surfaced again this evening. Talk of a €55 million bid made to Lazio.

2toms

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about this, repeatedly.}


1.) 24 May 2022 20:57:42
I know. Basically we want him, been the favoured choice to replace Pogba for some time but we’ll mess around with silly low offers and probably **** it up.
Or something along those lines?


2.) 24 May 2022 22:44:12
Can’t see him as a ten Haag signing so where’s the point.


3.) 25 May 2022 01:01:26
What about Ten Hag though?


4.) 25 May 2022 08:35:40
Why Tim?


5.) 25 May 2022 12:11:55
From what I’ve seen of him he’s not really high energy or good at the press. Maybe I’m wrong but we’ve been linked for 3 seasons now and nothing. Is he a club signing or what the manager wants? That’s what I’m getting at.


6.) 25 May 2022 12:36:11
On the brink of becoming another Wesley Sneijeider this one…….


7.) 25 May 2022 12:36:45
I agree Tim_99.
I have watched him 3-4 times this year and he's isn't a high energy player and doesn't press.
I think he would find the pace extremely difficult in the Premier League.
Just my personal opinion but i would stay well clear, it's not the type of player we need.


8.) 25 May 2022 13:39:27
So eth has final say that's been made public and very clear.
Who do you think knows better on what eth needs? I would suggest he does.
If he sanctions a bid for any player then I'm sure he knows how he plans to use him.
Same goes for his coaching team.
Opinions are all well and good informed opinions are usually best.
I like sms I think he is a great player tehnically and has great physical attributes but he is not quick especially.
I will support any new signings and staff I don't pretend to know better than ETH.
Lots of crazy rumours and most are untrue but 1 thing is for sure no player will be signed without eth approval so let's not second guess everything too much. After all we are the real amatures not those in charge.


9.) 25 May 2022 15:18:53
Is it a football team or a 100m relay team we talking about? what's this obsession about being fast? He knows how to play football and i think he knows it bloody well and that is enough. Was Scholes ever fast?


10.) 25 May 2022 15:19:25
For once I agree with one of your opinions Ken ?.


11.) 25 May 2022 15:59:09
Seems like Italian media talk. It’s the same as last year and year before. Like the above post it’s turning into another sneijder/ gaitan.

Was just thinking the same fireman, I agree with Ken!

According to Andy Mitten (via Twitter), Phil Jones is set to leave. Anyone know where he's going?

2toms

1.) 20 May 2022 14:49:25
i beleive it, i think he himself now finally sees no future at UTD, best for everyone. Good luck to him at his next club. Frees up a spot and a salary.


2.) 20 May 2022 17:37:23
A&E most likely.


3.) 20 May 2022 21:34:43
The Dog and Duck public house.

Chip butties all round after the match.

Shaw is interested in joining him.


4.) 20 May 2022 22:35:17
Shaw would get lost and be waiting for someone on the side of the road telling him where he is supposed to be.


5.) 21 May 2022 14:43:51
Phil Jones career is a strange one. From having so much promise as a youngster at Blackburn and Fergie thinking he was future England Captain material. Blighted by injuries and clearly not at such a lofty level. Still has more trophies on his CV than most: Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League. He's 30 so time to find his final contract where he can play most weeks. Plenty of Premier League teams he could do a job for I'm sure. Imagine he will need to reduce his wage demands from his current £75k pw but am sure he doesn't need to worry about signing on anytime soon!


6.) 21 May 2022 17:08:44
Jones never came close to fulfilling the potential his early performances at Blackburn (ironically as a young defensive mid) suggested he would.

A Fergie fave for sure but with no pace and the turning curve of a Sherman tank he's clearly not got a future at OT. I actually thought he was pretty decent when he started that rare game a few months ago and expected to see him used a bit more.

I'm sure that he could still do a decent job in the Prem, but anyone would be nuts not to insist on a pay per play basis which I feel will be the sticking point as he's been able to earn a huge amount without contributing.


7.) 21 May 2022 23:23:28
Realistically he should join a decent Championship side, or if he wants to play longer head off to France/ Spain if there are suitors there.

Was a good defender - ravaged by injuries which took its toll physically and mentally - not his fault.


 

 

20 Apr 2022 11:32:59
Jim Lawlor and Marcel Bout have both left United.
Looks like big changes behind the scenes this summer too.

2toms

1.) 20 Apr 2022 12:38:16
I do hope this is a sign of better people and things to come.


2.) 20 Apr 2022 12:41:37
I thought Marcel bout was a good scout but had no one to report to.


3.) 20 Apr 2022 12:01:50
To be honest looking at our recent signings it's probably long overdue.

Although to be fair I don't know how much blame can be put on them and how much on the people deciding which players to pursue AFTER they've been scouted.


4.) 20 Apr 2022 12:04:39
Interesting ed has said a lot of people don't know what their actual jobs are or what they are supposed to do, it would be interesting to see if this is because of recommendations by rangnick and part or streamlining things.
Hopefully this is a good move but none of us really know the set up of the club.

{Ed002's Note - They have decided to leave, not been sacked. The main issue will be dissatification with the DoF.}


5.) 20 Apr 2022 12:07:01
This is hopefully another sign that the club is looking to make the right footballing decisions and changes that could evolve the club into a modern football club. With stories that EtH and RR had questioned why the club had not even scouted some players they would have expected this is another sign that the the likes of Arnold/ Murtagh are listening.


6.) 20 Apr 2022 13:05:53
Ed002's response is deeply concerning. Scouting is such a critical activity for any football club, especially one whose so-called DNA is built around youth and development of. A bit like Cadburys failing to buy enough cocoa beans!


7.) 20 Apr 2022 13:08:18
ED002,

Do you think the club would be better off appointing a highly experienced DOF and moving Murtough into another position if possible, as he appears to be out of his depth.

Has RR had anything so say about the current DOF?

{Ed002's Note - They only appointed him a year ago.}


8.) 20 Apr 2022 13:05:54
Is this a good decision Ed002?
Over a billion spent for a decade but the squad assembled looks like a laughing stock.

{Ed002's Note - What decision?}


9.) 20 Apr 2022 13:47:40
That's not a good sign Ed. By all accounts I believe Bout and Lawlor are well thought of.

{Ed002's Note - There is a reason for it.}


10.) 20 Apr 2022 14:12:20
Deeply concerning explanation by Ed002: Media spinning it to be a much needed structural organisation but the reality seems to be the consequence of another structural imbalance.


11.) 20 Apr 2022 15:17:17
I'm not sure Ed is saying it's a bad thing. Murtough is newer on the job, but is clearly trying to run things a certain way that perhaps they disagree with.

{Ed002's Note - No it is nothing related to that.}


12.) 20 Apr 2022 15:29:15
I'm sure there is Ed. And my guess is that it wouldn't reflect well on the club.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing reflects well on the club.}


13.) 20 Apr 2022 16:52:55
Do you mind elaborating further as to why they both chose to leave the club Ed02. Your insight would be greatly appreciated instead of many in here just coming up with baseless opinions.

{Ed002's Note - it is unimportant.


14.) 20 Apr 2022 18:14:01
Nah bugger off with that, we appreciate Eds info on this page, its genuinely top of the list. Never want to see it go the way of other pages where idiots give Ed rubbish and lose out on his info. Whatever he shares, he shares.


15.) 20 Apr 2022 18:51:58
Hear hear Chris, the amount of time Ed002 kindly gives us is incredible. He’s always good enough to answer questions straight away, even though he can’t always give out sensitive information.

Always first with accurate information and says it like it is.

Very very grateful to him.


16.) 20 Apr 2022 20:05:39
Totally agree with these comments, thank you for anything you share, it's really genuinely appreciated.

Although I must admit I am desperate to hear Ed2 reply to someone along the lines of

"Man Utd who are known for being a model of how to run a modern football club"

I just hope it's in my lifetime.


17.) 21 Apr 2022 06:45:11
As Gary Neville said, Jim leaving is not a surprise, had been marginalised in the decision making process for years.


18.) 21 Apr 2022 09:28:32
Question to Ed002 if l may its been a few years since l have last posed a question to yourself. Do you believe there is now a chance we move away from the much maligned clown structure you used to inform us about now there appears to be operational changes taking place. Have a good day 002.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change in structure.}


19.) 21 Apr 2022 11:01:27
Well to start with there is murtagh and fletcher in roles we never had up until a year ago and Woodward gone from involvement in football matters, straight away that tells me the structure has changed from peak Woodward times!

{Ed002's Note - No. The structure that the club has had in place has not changed since appointments were made. We are not talking about some random point in the past.}


20.) 21 Apr 2022 12:16:20
Haha good man ed002. Brutal honesty.


21.) 21 Apr 2022 14:06:37
It was reported earlier this year that Murtough would be getting a deputy to ease his workload, think Andy O'Boyle is the current favourite, but don't know if a decision has been made.


22.) 21 Apr 2022 21:13:54
What exactly is Fletchers role then? I have never really worked it out.


 

 

05 Apr 2022 14:45:34
Latest rumour is McClaren as Ten Hags number 2. It would be worth it just to hear that Dutch accent again.

2toms

1.) 05 Apr 2022 15:03:57
Would be funny if true. He was Sir Alex's No.2 in 1999. Wouldn't be the worst appointment.

EtH with McClaren and RvP on his coaching team. Would probably keep those who want to hire former employees happy.


2.) 05 Apr 2022 15:32:36
Probably a Sir Alex suggestion, god forbid we should have a coaching set up that did'nt feature one of his old boys.


3.) 05 Apr 2022 16:11:02
Bilko, I reckon the report is a pile of rubbish or wires crossed as Andy Mitten has said that he was a reference for Ten Hag and made no mention of a coaching role.

Although they do know each other well apparently, it may not be the worst thing in the world but I don't see it happening personally.


4.) 05 Apr 2022 17:04:39
How many more mindless buffoons can one club employ? No thanks Steve.


5.) 05 Apr 2022 17:23:31
Did we just try the bring back an old Fergie No.2 experiment. Unless EtH has specifically requested it, then no.


6.) 05 Apr 2022 18:22:06
Maybe he will be mainly utilised keeping Ten Hag dry in our rather inclement Manchester weather ??.


7.) 05 Apr 2022 18:46:57
Brendan81,

Haha wolly with brolly. I'd forgotten about that.


8.) 05 Apr 2022 19:39:17
Maybe we should just officially announce Fergie.


 

 

01 Dec 2021 12:03:06
According to German journalist (Bild sport), Rangnick will be targeting Nkunku, Haidara, Haaland and Werner.
I'd take the first 3 but not Werner.
That being said, how anyone knows who Rangnick will be after at this early stage is beyond me.

2toms

1.) 01 Dec 2021 12:51:42
It's just media speculation, they always link former players to a manager at a new club. All about getting clicks.

The reality is that Rangnick isn't the long term manager, unless a long term target is available in January I doubt we'll sign someone. While next summer if all goes to plan Rangnick won't be our manager and you would therefore assume that any targets would be for the new manager and what that manager feels he needs to implement his style.

Obviously the idea is that the next manager plays a similar style, but that doesn't mean they will want the same players as Rangnick might want.

Nkunku looks a really good player and is tactically clever enough to play multiple different roles across the front line and in midfield.

Haaland is just a pipe dream for most and is a big name who'll attract a lot of attention when you throw his name in with United. We don't deal with his agent, and he doesn't want to join us.

Haidara, decent but nothing special, could be useful in playing a specific style, but he hasn't really played any other style to know if he could adapt and maintain or improve his current level.

Werner is just a silly one.

Personally I'd be surprised if we sign anyone in January, while the summer signings will surely be made with the next full time manager in mind.


2.) 01 Dec 2021 13:05:53
Just usual clickbait!


3.) 01 Dec 2021 15:03:22
Haidara’s name keeps coming up but I don’t see him as much more than a slightly upgraded version of Fred. Werner is awful. He works hard and presses but he misses continually.


4.) 01 Dec 2021 17:34:12
I was wondering how long until we were linked with RB players, seems it’s happened already ?.


5.) 01 Dec 2021 17:54:51
I think the only sure shot name that we may look at is Declan Rice, whether that is in January or the summer is unsure. Rice seems to be a club target rather than a manager's choice like Herrera and Shaw were.


6.) 01 Dec 2021 19:52:09
I saw Haidara's name coming up a fair bit and was quite encouraged by it. I hadn't heard of him, but to be linked with shall we say under-the-radar lesser players who the manager believes fit a certain style and are obtainable with realistic fees/ release fees is a welcome change over the usual marquee names who I've become tired of. A few have been very good but on the whole no signings have impressed in the past 8 years other than Bruno and a few from our our own academy.
A club like Utd has hundreds of scouts all over the world and this is the motley crew they've come up with. Let's try Rangnick's approach I say, I assume that's why he's here.


7.) 01 Dec 2021 20:53:18
First of all, we need to reduce our wage bill to comply with the FFP rules. We need to sell a player or two in January.

I wouldn't be surprised if the club did sign at least one player, providing players are sold. Ragnick will be trying to set the tea up for next summer. The next 6 months will help him drill the tram for the next manager who will likely be a manager who has a very similar philosphy.


8.) 04 Dec 2021 09:34:33
Ralf said yesterday he will only buy in January if it is a player who improves the team and that those are rarely available in winter, so I wouldn't expect much movement.
In the summer we might have a new manager coming in, so obviously they will have a say in who we target.

I've seen some highlights of Amad Diallo this morning, and they were just highlights. Has anyone been watching him on loan at Rangers. From what I've seen this morning, he looks like he's been playing slightly deeper as maybe a central midfielder, also on the right. Looks like he's handled the Scottish league well without being spectacular. Wouldn't mind seeing him given a chance under Ten Hag.

2toms

1.) 26 May 2022 09:31:16
He started brightly for 2-3 games then was consistently warming the bench.
Looks a poor loan move now.
In the Europa finals, he didn't even come off the bench.


2.) 26 May 2022 11:26:02
Would've been better off in championship.

Hes a very talented young man. Hopefully he gets an opportunity to train under ETH.


3.) 26 May 2022 12:33:08
I don't think he will be given a chance next season. The plan I think is to loan him out again.

He hasn't set the league alight in Scotland and bar a few flashes has been bang average.

Garner has been a far better, more consistent and standout player in a much tougher league on loan than Amad. Yet there is still a question mark over whether he's ready to step up to the top end of the EPL. Q.


4.) 26 May 2022 15:53:43
All players will have to impress EtH. As long as those who have been out on loan, come back, train hard, lait to EtH and his staff then they have a chance.

I was surprised Pellistri wasn't given a chance last season. He has a fantastic pre season, then was shipped out. The club now have a surplus supply of wingers. Marcus Tashford will have to be careful as his form has been horrendous.

Again its onwards and hopefully forwards, which u seem to say every year.

Very immature individual, who is a below average footballer, and clearly leaks info to his mates. Goodbye.


2.) 03 May 2022 20:38:15
It’s absolute madness!
I get he’s a local lad who’s been here since birth etc etc but come on. He’s been a squad player at best. Couple of important cup goals, and he’s wanting a send off fit for the likes of Paolo Maldini or Francesco Totti.
Dust your West Ham shirt off and post some more pics on social media to cheer yourself up lad.


3.) 03 May 2022 20:54:13
He got the send-off he deserved.


4.) 03 May 2022 21:05:43
It was classless from Ralf not to put him on and put on Cavani indtead.

The way he's been messed around by the club and Ole this season has been disgraceful.

He got exactly what he deserved. Good bye and good riddance.

Agree with all those sentiments…totally sums up why the club is in its current state. Squad is full of similar figures to Jesse, goodbye and good luck✋.


8.) 03 May 2022 23:43:24
Hope he gets a move that suits him and I hope he does well. He has shown for West ham he can be a great addition he only has a few years left but his time here is done. Imo it was done 3 or 4 years ago.


9.) 03 May 2022 23:56:48
be ironic if he be playing in the europa conference league.


10.) 04 May 2022 00:52:28
There’s more chance of him playing in the conference league than us, what a fool.


11.) 04 May 2022 03:51:36
He deserved a send off. Unfortunately Scholes ruined that for him. He should of known better than to leak stories out to the press. But in fairness to Jesse, he probably thought scholes would be smart enough not to drop his mate kn it like that.

Did Cavani deserve it ahead of Jesse? Probably not, no. But Jesse had a part in that. And to be fair, better play Cavani when he's available. Never know when he will be available again.


12.) 04 May 2022 06:48:55
He is busy promoting his Jlingz brand.
Should have got rid off him 2 years earlier after that immature disgusting video.


13.) 04 May 2022 10:09:18
Why should Scholes not reveal his info? He is not a mate of Jesse's. Scholes did the right thing in exposing lingard for what he is.
He deserved no special send off.


14.) 04 May 2022 10:55:29
Why do these players need a send off playing on the pitch? He has had a few run outs over the past month for the fans to see what he looks like on the pitch and has done nothing. If he had left after his loan at West Ham he would not have had any send off and his achievements listed by his brother are the same as nothing achieved this season.

Whether some of the players that played against Brentford were for sentimental reasons or to win the match (remember we did win) is debatable, Mata/ Matic played well and was a game that we were aiming to win in case the others slip up (especially with the Chelsea sale issue there could be an additional space to aim for) .

As some have already mentioned if Jesse has been one of the leaks then this will have not sat well with RR who has been vocal about this at the club and may have led to him not being included.
Either way the fans can say thank you with him walking round the pitch, the club have thanked him already by paying a wage and getting nothing in return.


15.) 04 May 2022 11:28:21
Brad you make some good points. Some fans are overly sentimental. Same as the nonsense we had to listen to about ole. Some supporters have standards lower or in line with the players and coaches that have been at the club last few years.


16.) 04 May 2022 17:30:32
I dread to think what it would be like as a new signing or youth player entering the OT changing rooms and being greeted by the Pogba, Lingard et al clique.

Get rid of them all.


17.) 04 May 2022 18:11:05
Bang average player, seems like a bit of a c*ck and I’m very happy to lose him and his dance partner Pogback this summer.

He is welcome to take Greenwood, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Jones, Shaw, Pareira, Martial and Rashford with him, along with Matic, Cavani and Mata who are already on the way out.

None of the above will be missed in the slightest, even if replaced with some youngsters. Says a lot in my eyes.

Agree 2toms sorry but I'm feeling depressed watching this club I've supported for 55 years sink to this level. Even the relegation side played with more respect and urgency.

{Ed0666's Note - it takes one or two transfer windows to get you challenging again. You have a good summer transfer you never know.


 

 

08 Apr 2022 20:05:02
With the latest news about Varane being out injured, I seriously think CB is needed this summer. As much as I like Varane, it's clear we can't count on him. He's as bad as Bailly for injuries.
Could be a massive summer if the media are to be believed. Hard to see our board getting 4-5 top quality transfers completed as well as clearing the decks.

2toms

1.) 08 Apr 2022 20:49:19
Could just play Bailly, when he plays he's been good, certainly better than the Fridge.


2.) 08 Apr 2022 21:33:07
We must have know when buying Varane that he misses half his games through injury. He makes Cavani look fit as a fiddle.


3.) 09 Apr 2022 10:29:32
Still a snip though and worth the risk, IMO. I don't think he's revolutionised the defence but it's definitely stronger for him.
I agree a CB better than anything else we have is required or at least an up-and-coming youngster. Arguably we have a few candidates in our youth team ready to push on. But so much surgery is required up the pitch I wouldn't be surprised if the defence is untouched this summer.


4.) 09 Apr 2022 10:38:11
We've played 41 games so far, Varane has started 22 of them and made a further 3 sub appearances playing 1467 minutes, or the 11th most minutes of players in our squad.

Cavani has started 7 games, with a further 10 sub appearances. Playing 614 minutes, or the 19th most in our squad.

While Varane's injuries have been frustrating, he does play more often than Cavani by a long way, playing over twice as many minutes.

That said we do definitely need a new CB this summer, as simply Maguire and Lindelof are squad players at best. Jones and Bailly cannot stay fit. While Tuanzebe doesn't look like he is going to be good enough. Which only leaves Varane as a good enough option.


5.) 09 Apr 2022 11:53:09
Sorry, but Cavani's injury record is hopeless.
Even when available, he chooses when to play.


 

 

01 Apr 2022 22:49:10
I've been looking through clips of Ten Hag and Pochettino this evening ( sad life, I know) and this one really does stand out for me.

You can really see Ralf and TH making a difference to the footballing side of things if they get the chance to work together. The brutally honest approach to coaching and tactics is a far far cry from the bull we were served up under Ole.

im a bit jaded by it all, the last 4-5 years to be honest. I see RR speaking a lot of sense this morning. UTD should be buying young hungry players who want to improve -and not just big names he has said again . Exactly what he said in 2018 when asked where UTD were going wrong in recruitment.

So ETH and RR,2 footballing men with a vison - will they ever be listened to if ETH gets the job? will the fans or even the media accept UTD buying player x y z for 30 mill each and not Rice at 150 +
Thats the worry.

I hope we go along with the let's buy talent and build them approach.
We've always relied heavily on that, this let's get readymade stars has not worked.
I'm against Declan Rice as a signing and would rather prefer cheaper players if it means we invest in more areas of the squad.
This summer's rebuild is going to be the most difficult one with so many players leaving on free, others wanting to move and some not at the level here.

Absolutely agree with this approach but as you have aluded to ETH will need someone behind the scenes who sees it the same and the club will have to hold there nerve.
Big time buys are great if they are the bit that gets you over, we have multiple areas to improve or just replace so we need to use the youth and those on the continent who are breaking through. Success for us comes always with a young hungry team built over multiple years with a spattering of high end purchases. we need to do the former first then add to it.

I’m much more in favour of more modest purchases who fit the mentality and positions required. Rice is a brilliant player but he’s the icing on the cake. Utd need a lot of sponge for the cake for now.

I would take Rice whatever the price, I think he is a wonderful player, he just keeps getting better and better and developing which is a sign of a top professional and player. He makes the players around him better. I can't see him being anything other than a positive influence on the rest of the squad and the youngsters. He has for me been the outstanding player in rhe EPL this year.

I also don't think Chelsea would pay what he will cost.

For the last two years I have said that Utd rebuild should begin with him and Bellingham and we should be doing everything to secure them. Neither has done anything to dispel that belief, if anything they have merely made it stronger.

I know it would cost a lot but ypu need a smattering of top class players and these boys sre the ones for me.

Rice unfortunately fits the bill on both fronts. He’s the Carrick type signing who could serve the club for 7-10 years but is also the absolute stand out candidate for the position we’re so desperately lacing in.
I’d happily splash the money on rice and a striker this window. Let the new manager work with the squad over the next few windows and strengthen as he sees fit.

You can't have only young players policy, it just doesn't work.
It could be a combination, for example, splashing the cash on either Kane or Rice and bringing in several more young players. We need experienced players, but perhaps not too many.

I know. Basically we want him, been the favoured choice to replace Pogba for some time but we’ll mess around with silly low offers and probably **** it up.
Or something along those lines?

From what I’ve seen of Pau Torres, I’d be concerned too. Tidy on the ball but not the most physical. He tends to turn inside on the edge of his box a lot too. A worrying habit for a centre half.

Always wondered what he is still doing at United. Just a very odd situation. He’s a very good footballer who’s won the lot but has wasted a good 5-6 years at United. A move back to Spain with Barcelona or Valencia would’ve been better for him.

angelred players need to take a bit of responsibility. It’s not Ole or any other coaches fault he can’t overlap or cross a ball. His tackling is impeccable, going forward he’s poor.

Wirtz and Szoboszlai are two of the best under 21’s in Bundesliga.
Both would be good additions. I really hope Garner gets a chance next season too.

I’d be happy if we got a striker, Midfielder and centre half in this window. Isak or Jonathan David, Tielemens or Neves, Gvardiol or Pau Torres.
If there are free’s available ie Kamara then add them and bring a few youngsters into the fold.

Realistically, we not going to be challenging for at least 2-3 windows with this current mob. He needs time to add gradually.

It’s absolute madness!
I get he’s a local lad who’s been here since birth etc etc but come on. He’s been a squad player at best. Couple of important cup goals, and he’s wanting a send off fit for the likes of Paolo Maldini or Francesco Totti.
Dust your West Ham shirt off and post some more pics on social media to cheer yourself up lad.

Shappy, only yesterday you said their departure was probably long overdue ?
You’ve then gone on to list players (the squad players still under contract) who could leave, then say not everyone can be sold? We’ll lose the players out of contract. I’d expect maybe 1 more max will go.
There is no way we’ll see a wholesale change in one window, certainly not 12.

I was having a bit of a laugh mate. The season is finished. This team is an embarrassment. Not one players deserves respect from the fans this season. De Gea just about maybe.
