Ed002 if you're not doing a sharkopod then can I ask if there looks to be several ins-and-outs (2 or 3, say) this winter. I know it's usually not a time for major movements but there are serious leaks to plug - mainly in central defence and midfield - that left alone could leave us well out of the top 6, nevermind top 4 very soon.


{Ed002's Note - I really don'tr want to get involved too much on this page for a while. Too much grief.}

Ed 02
Sorry to see your voice of insight and sanity disappear yet again.

I understand and respect your decision but am disappointed - not in you but in the fact you will be greatly missed.
I will say thanks and Au revoir in the hope you will return.

Ed will return just let the situation with Mourinho clear up.

Ed001, I saw you mentioning that we're looking at loads of players and that centre backs are being prioritised along with a marquee/ vanity signing. Which positions do you think we should be looking at.

From my perspective, I think there are lots of deadwood in the squad but for the first team picture we could have
de Gea/ suitable replacement; Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, New Signing 1, Shaw; New Signing 2, Schneiderlin/ Herrera; New Signing 3, Mata/ Herrera, Martial; New Signing 4
with Romero, CBJ, Darmian, Varela, Blind, Pereira, Lingard, Rashford being the key squad players to rotate in and out to this side. Most of the rest of the squad could be sold to fund the new signings. Is there any solid rumours on which players are being moved on?


{Ed001's Note - thinking about it, I have not heard anything regarding outs, other than De Gea. I will have to ask, as there must be at least one or two on the move, other than him.}

Ed001 is de gea off from what you hear? I think we need to keep him. how many other keepers make the saves as consistently as save? He's our best player week in week out we need to build a decent defence for him.

{Ed001's Note - it is the most likely scenario. Not 100%, well nothing is, but they are not expected to make a mere token gesture this summer.}

We're not that great defensively. 3 holding midfielders and an unbelievable goalkeeper have papered over the cracks. Also the frustration is that we have top notch attacking players but the lack of a constructive approach means we have reverted to a damage limitation exercise while hoping for individual brilliance to bail us out. Meanwhile spurs and liverpool are getting similar results but play a much better brand of football. My hope is that the glaring issues with our defence and CM are addressed this summer and Mourinho adopts a better approach, but I'm not sure how realistic that is.

Bailly is our best CB when fit. By a distance. Yes he has injuries, but he's been available for far more than he has played this year.

Woodward has lurched from misstep to misstep in his time at the helm. This is just the culmination. His disastrous approach to transfers, to contract negotiations (with ed002 having detailed previously how he has ignored the advice of consultants in both of these), the embarrassing "leaking" of inside stories to the BBC and others, the manner in which he fired LVG in particular (sacking him was right but not how it was done) . It's not right to relish in someone's misfortune but him stepping down was long overdue.

I'd love to see the domestic season happen in a more condensed window and teams qualify for an ESL type league at the end of the season. Kind of like the playoffs for NBA/ NFL but more exciting as the teams are from different countries. The Champions League itself is too wide right now. Unfortunately the whole aim for this is guaranteed income for the biggest clubs so that type of suggestion is a non-runner.

Agree that they played well today. But that doesn't change the strong belief that I think many here share that Bailly is the better player and we're generally a better team with him in it.
