Telles deal agreed- Ed spot on with the info on this one from the start. Thank you for sharing. Sancho next 😂 we can dream. No dan James today in the squad, wonder if something is going on there.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 16:15:08
with a late season start, i would not be surprised if United are thinking of holding out until January transfer window for Sancho which is only under 3 months away.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 18:48:39
Hope we don't get Sancho. No better than rashford. Goes missing in big games like pogba. German League easy in comparison to prem.

He dosent want United. Wouldn't give more than 60mil for him. Much better available for a fraction. Look at Rodriguez at Everton. Class.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 19:22:25
Pogba goes missing in every game he plays. Why the club never sold him is baffling.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 20:00:25
I don't remember the last game I saw Pogba playing like a real player. He's been missing for 2-3 years now.

5.) 04 Oct 2020 21:24:46
and yet they keep telling us he is world class.

6.) 04 Oct 2020 21:30:32
France in WC?

7.) 04 Oct 2020 21:41:35
Had he had a good game in a red shirt? Let’s not single out Pogba though. Since the restart they’ve all been awful which signals a much wider malaise.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 21:48:33
does not matter what players we give ole eric he takes them backwards.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 22:51:07
what a result for us in typical fashion it will probs kick the board into gear now and get who we need wldnt be surprised if we got sancho now absolute morons.

10.) 04 Oct 2020 23:22:43
Pogba had a great run when ole joined- but that was it. He was hardly in the team last season- time for Donny to start for me.

11.) 05 Oct 2020 07:49:14
Let’s hope Telles knows how to defend.



03 Oct 2020 17:20:19
We have apparently paid Facundo Pellistri's buy out clause of €10 million. He plays for penarol, 18 years old and apparently Forlan who I believe is there coach recommended him.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 17:33:22
He is one of three 18 year old wide forwards that we have been looking at, along with Filip Stevanovic and Amad Traore. I'm not sure if we are looking at signing more than one of them.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 17:42:02
Traore is moving to someone else in Italy, maybe Parma I think shappy (not sure if permanent or on loan)

3.) 03 Oct 2020 17:55:41
Correct ala traore caolan. However the Pellistri has some weight behind it, it’s said there’s a dispute that his club want to keep him for a loan despite the sale but we want him now.

4.) 03 Oct 2020 18:15:22
For LAN was sacked a month or so ago Caolan.

It was said that unlike Lyon we were willing to allow him to remain on loan for the rest of their season which meant a deal with us was favourable for Peñarol. I don't know if we've changed our stance on it.

5.) 03 Oct 2020 18:40:43
Yes Deependra he was sacked, but there’s also stories that he recommended him to us months ago.

6.) 03 Oct 2020 19:53:39
Forlan did recommend him to us Caolan.
Actually I wanted Forlan to be a success at Peñarol and one day lead us to a few titles. Right now that doesn't look that likely.

7.) 03 Oct 2020 19:59:04
Deependra any idea what Forlan is up to now? So gutted he never really worked out for us. Class player.

8.) 04 Oct 2020 05:40:04
He was sacked just a month ago Caolan so not much of note I would say.

You can give a listen to the latest Man Utd podcast mate. Forlan was the guest on it.

9.) 04 Oct 2020 08:23:34
The smart thimg to do now is sell james to leeds recoup some of our money and buy stevamovic I've not seem much of him but what i have he looks like he could be a steal he looks very technocally gifted unlike james and can play om the left so can cover rashford.

10.) 04 Oct 2020 12:53:43
I think cavarni deal is a no brainier, 2 year for our present front 3 to learn from a (past) world class striker.



27 Sep 2020 16:19:22
Some talk of Andreas going to Lazio on loan. Some places saying a loan with an obligation to buy and others saying an option to buy instead. Even seen 27 million euros quoted. Thought I'd share. Ed have you heard anything, I know you were saying we were looking to high a fee for him.


{Ed002's Note - Lazio and Benfica provide options.}

1.) 27 Sep 2020 18:20:53
Thanks Ed. Hopefully a busy week for the club with regards transfers.



30 Jul 2020 16:15:35
Some reports in Portugal today of Paulinho (from Leverkusen I think) to wolves, with Raul Jiminez coming to us? I saw sports witness translate a few reports.

Ed do we still hold any interest in Jiminez or is the just rubbish?


{Ed002's Note - He would be very expensive and who would he replace?}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 21:09:45
I think it's the striker Paulinho at Braga.

2.) 30 Jul 2020 21:27:00
Cheers Somerset. I’ve no idea Ed, thought it was a strange one. I think we were linked before ighalo which is why I asked but obviously ighalo is here until January now.

3.) 30 Jul 2020 22:47:29
Heard he is signing for Juventus (for a very high fee) .



31 May 2020 14:36:05
Looks like Igahlo's deal is being extended.


1.) 31 May 2020 17:02:49
Good news, has been impressive and gives us a different option.

2.) 31 May 2020 19:00:11
Very happy if he stays. Has shown enough to be given a longer stint and also maybe allows us to invest elsewhere in the team. Another overlooked point is that he seems good in the dressing room and has a real hunger to do well for us. Good news if true.

21 Oct 2020 09:45:02
Anyone think the signing of telles means that we will move to the kind of system we saw last night on a more regular basis. What was great was when we were in control it changed to a 4 which kept us well protected, and allowed us to leave more players forward to sustain attacks and make it hard to counter.

It will be interesting, those corners from telles are worth the transfer fee alone. It's been a long time since we've had a decent crosser of the ball!


1.) 21 Oct 2020 09:52:25
If anything, I think it means Maguire will probably score more goals, his corner deliveries are the best I've seen since Beckham, of course that could just be a one of.

2.) 21 Oct 2020 10:01:47
We played well with 3 at the back and a back 4 last night . Great to have options.



20 Oct 2020 22:06:02
Axel the man of the match for me by a country mile. Didn't give mbappe a kick. Great sub and decision from ole to go to a back 4 when psg were on top. That got us the control back as pogba was excellent when he came on. Rashford does it again in a big game.


1.) 20 Oct 2020 22:38:17
Think you must have been watching a different Pogba to me, I thought he was rubbish as usual.

I don't understand how he can be so lazy. He doesn't close down, he doesn't tackle, he doesn't fill gaps and he constantly gives the ball away.

3 minutes to go and we are defending a 1 goal lead in an important European tie and Pogba is just ambling about looking like he should be good at football.

So infuriating when the rest of the team played so well and with so much conviction. Well done to Solksjaer. I'm not a fan of him as a manager but I thought he set the team up well tonight.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 22:55:32
Pogba was pretty good. When he's on the ball he has the ability to hold onto it and allow others to get into space, sometimes it doesn't matter how many are on him, his lanky frame holds the ball up really well and he has an eye for a pass once he's created the space.

He can be awful at times and sometimes gives the ball away far too much, but when he's on it he has a big influence on the field.

3.) 21 Oct 2020 01:23:04
MancMan, what are you on about? When PSG scored, they were the team on top, and as soon as Pogba came on, that changed and United were on top again from then on. He wasn’t spectacular but he was pretty sharp, and he used the ball very effectively.

4.) 21 Oct 2020 08:24:10
Pogba was very very good when he came on you clearly either have an agenda or don't know what your talking about.

The back five worked really well but we looked much better offensively when Pogba came on and Ole reverted to a back four and a midfield diamond.

A 1-1 that was a very brave substitution and I must admit I was worried how'd we'd cope defensively when Pogba came and we moved to a back four. We actually controlled possession much better and looked a lot more threatening.

I think some have suggested a midfield diamond might just be our best formation and I think we got a glimpse of what it can offer for the last 20 minutes the game.

It really was a fantastic tactical switch.
We retained the energy and industry of Fred and Mctominay in midfield but I thought Pogba added a real quality and threat to our play and we still had the pace of Martial and Rashford on the break, it very very very good.

Ole deserves great credit for his tactical acumen this evening. He made a brave, offensive substitution with the game in the balance at 1-1 against a very good team away from home. The last 20 minutes of that game were absolutely brilliant in my opinion and we thoroughly deserved to win the game.



18 Oct 2020 10:11:40
Hopefully the players reactions, body language etc will dispel the absolute dross that we've seen on here about claims the dressing room is split and the manager has lost the players.

Good performance and reaction to going a goal down. On another night we score 6 or 7. Enjoyable performance. Shout out to mata- what a pro.


1.) 18 Oct 2020 11:28:37
It's not only on here that it is said there are divisions within the dressing room though. It's easy to think things look rosy when you are winning. We don't look quite so 'together' when things aren't going so well.
I'm not quite sure that OLE has 'lost the dressing room', but I'm not convinced it's all smiles in there either.

2.) 18 Oct 2020 12:23:28
Looked like a team who were up for t to me. If Ole has lost the dressing room you couldn't see it.

3.) 18 Oct 2020 12:52:24
Betty of course it wouldn’t be all smiles. They’d been hammered 6-1. If they were all smiles I’d be asking questions.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 12:58:35
I think some were hoping he'd lost the dressing room. Hoping doesn't make it so, though.

5.) 18 Oct 2020 13:06:36
I posted previously that by all accounts the players like Ole and they will try for him, but they don’t believe he is a top manager who will take them anywhere.



05 Oct 2020 14:20:07
Ed1 any info on Amad Traore? 😂.


{Ed001's Note - very highly rated winger, I know that much. Atalanta have an excellent recruitment system, so it makes sense to look at their players. Other than that I know little of him.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 15:51:27
So little on him on Youtube other that he looks 13 years old and could have been body double for the lad off Different strokes (ask your dads)

{Ed025's Note - "what you talkin about willis.. :)

2.) 05 Oct 2020 15:58:10
Do you know much of pellistri ed?

{Ed001's Note - only that Forlan reckons he is a special talent. Nothing more than that.}

3.) 05 Oct 2020 16:11:36
We took a punt on Bebe on Quieroz's recommendation we can do the same here I guess.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 17:06:25
Pellistri and Traore look just like children. Their dreaded YouTube compilations are just on parks against 5 ft scrawny kids. The Prem is not the place for these players right now. Hopefully neither are treated as the saviours of the season.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 17:19:25
Spenno that’s the job of scouts not us on YouTube.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 16:52:56

Tris has anyone beaten me to request a Player profile for Amad Traore? Heck why not add Pellestri and Stevanovic to your short list😉😜

Also like you pointed out Atalanta do have really great recent history with youth players. I saw a stat somewhere a year or so ago that more than 50% of young players in Serie A had spent some period in the Atalanta youth Academy.

{Ed001's Note - I have added them, though Stevanovic was already there at Ed002's request a long time back when he said United were interested.}

7.) 05 Oct 2020 17:32:19
Ed who is more highly rated out of Pelestri, Stefanovic and Traore.

I am some if we signed Traore and Pelestri we will miss out on Stefanovic.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, never known them to be compared to be honest.}



26 Sep 2020 15:34:40
Poor performance but 3 points. We will play 10 times better than that this season and come away with nothing. Points are all that matters early doors. Let's see where we are in terms of personnel next time out. Let's hope for a couple of additions.


1.) 26 Sep 2020 17:32:05
We played 10 times better than that in the Europa league semi final and lost the game having been the team missing the chances, sometimes that’s how it goes, big 3 points today and will hopefully give the team confidence to go on, Brighton are a decent side as they have proved all season so far.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 18:18:48
No GDS2 your wrong the manager should be sacked immediately he is the worst manager in the whole of Europe. Its a disaster😂.

3.) 26 Sep 2020 18:27:39
Im intrigued to see how the season bans out. Atm atleast it feels like we can only get better. Was a poor performance but a vital win. Tough games coming up so its going to be interesting.

4.) 26 Sep 2020 18:29:33
"All season so far". but GDS isn't it just 2 games in now? Or does that apply only to when it comes down to our performance?

Simon, Ole may not be the worst but he isn't anywhere near the vicinity of even good. We were outplayed today by a far superior side. But i ain't complaining. 3 points.

5.) 26 Sep 2020 18:33:54
It could be worse, we could have spent over £200 mill but be 3 down at HT to West Brom.

6.) 26 Sep 2020 18:39:29
It’s going to be an interesting season. I feel arsenal will be dark horses and may sneak 3rd. But I feel the top 4 is going to be a real battle this season. Top 2 city and pool but Everton, Spurs, Arsenal, Utd, Chelsea and Leicester will be a real fight for top 4. Will be an exciting season.

7.) 26 Sep 2020 18:49:03
Love it when people justify their own crap by saying someone else is worse.

8.) 26 Sep 2020 19:17:47
I don't think Leicester will be as big a threat for top 4 this season. I think the Europa League will take a toll on their injury hit squad. And also they have Brendan Rodgers as managers whose teams get progressively worse every season and he can't coach a defence to save his life.

9.) 26 Sep 2020 19:23:49
James we only finished 3rd last season because of that blvery same logic. We were crap but others were worse. People will say anything to justify their point.

10.) 26 Sep 2020 19:41:02
Think we all need to relax and stop over reacting game to game. Good win today - side clearly not fit yet, but we showed great resolve under the cosh and won in Fergie Time. This 2 additional points could prove pivotal at the end of the season for the fight for 3/ 4th (which is where we are right now without more investment) . We will only improve.

11.) 26 Sep 2020 20:13:33
That’s their 3rd game Shan and they have played well in them all including a 3-0 win last week, so yea, good to beat them imo.

Shappy what more could we do to create an environment for pogba? Near enough every signing has been to “unlock” him. He’s got all the ability in the world, there’s not much he can’t do with a ball. The frustrating thing is he doesn’t do it for 90mins. His best moments in the United shirt was the city game. Where he was god awful first half.

I don’t think he’s a bad fella at all, but he’s not someone I want Hannibal mejbri for example to be looking up too. He throws his arms about when he loses the ball, doesn’t work hard enough without it either. If he played simple and released the ball early he’d be fantastic, but he’s more interested in looking good. His start to this season has been nothing short of a disgrace. The sooner he’s gone the better for him and for us as a club.

A real shame that it’s taken this long. He’s been a good servant to us and should have been allowed to go much much earlier. Ed said all window we were asking for too much. We could have got this deal done weeks ago imo.

Angel I honestly couldn’t predict. This will be a strange season, if we can win our next 3 in the league which is a big ask I think we will be right up the league. This will be an interesting season with players dropping like flies to injuries or C.V.

I get what you’re saying about Van de beek but I don’t think we should have changed it as we were well on top. I thought the manager was spot on tonight.
