Just want to say Thankyou to all the Eds especially at this period of the transfer window because it must take a lot of their time to put up all our posts.


{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. Yeah it can do, I mean I will be up again in 3 hours or so to do the review of the day. Hopefully I will get a chance to grab a couple of hours during the day and catch up. But thanks and good night all and fingers crossed for an interesting day tomorrow!}

Echo the sentiment. Thanks to all the Eds (except Ed Woodward :P) .

{Ed001's Note - but he was great in the Equaliser! How can you not thank him?}

Dybala possibly being bid for by Spurs for £62m. I know it's only Sky Sources etc etc but it does intrigue me because if does suggest they want to sell Erik's on rather than lose him for nothing next year. If I were Utd I woukd tell him to sit tight see out his contract and then sign him next year on a free. Meantime I would be very happy ro get Coutinho on a years loan for £20million. Of you think about Barcelona would prob want £100m to sell him. So a loan of £20m a year for five years would be the equivalent of that sale figure. The advantage of the loan though is that we get the chance to see how he fits and adds to the team and if next year we want to buy he should cost at least £20m less than this year as he will be a year older. For Barcelona they get the loan amount plus get his wages off their balance sheet for at least one year. If things don't work out back he goes. Seems to me to be a win win for both teams and player. The one only slightly negative is that I would really love to see Sanchez come good but having him and Coutinho in the same team might be difficult.

Who was the last South American to be a wonder at United?

2.) 06 Aug 2019 20:28:06
Tevez and heinze were both decent.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 20:29:17
Sorry but I think its a bad idea. don't rate him at all sorry.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 20:29:24
Forlan 😂.

5.) 06 Aug 2019 20:38:46
Coutinho is premier league proven take him in a heartbeat.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 20:58:32
He won't join United due to liverpool and if he's got any chance of going back there in the future coming to united will ruin any chance of that .

IMHO i do not rate him . would much prefer Eriksen, sell Lukaku and get dembele from Lyon . next summer go all out for Sancho .

if we do sell pogba this window less than 40 hours to do it then shoild go for SMS .

CSF you forget the legend that was Anderson!

8.) 07 Aug 2019 04:17:29
Can’t see Spurs paying anyone £250k per week so not sure Dybala is moving there.



02 Aug 2019 01:08:30
Sorry didn't finish my last post. I would rather we didn't pay stupid amounts for Maguire et al and instead helped out our neighbours Bolton and Bury.




02 Aug 2019 01:07:24
Seems to me that this is an unusually difficult transfer window because so few of the really best players are moving. With so many clubs having huge revenue streams funded from TV it means the biggest clubs like United can no longer just buy who they want by waving wads of cash around. In a way its better because it levels the playing field. What it does do is highlight which clubs are really organised and know how to conduct their business efficiently. From the outside it appears that we are seriously lacking in that department. However that may be an unfair assessment. Maybe the reason I gave above for a slow market is the biggest factor in it being hard for United to get deals done. On a longer term view I actually would prefer us not to pay £80 million for a player if the calibre of Maguire. He is just not worth that amount. In a week when we have seen the troubles at Bolton and Bury I woukd rather we.

Pogba again showing the extra bit of class with that killer pass which led to the penalty. I know he doesn't do it often enough but we are going to miss that sort of thing if he goes. Who else in the squad has his athleticism driving runs and ability to deliver such passes. City have two or three players like that. If Pogba goes and even of we get eg Fernando's in we will still be light.


1.) 30 Jul 2019 21:22:53
“City have two or three players like that”. that's exactly the point, its pretty much impossible to shut down all of their chance creators.

If we had more than one top quality chance creator we would have been much closer to the top of the table. Hopefully we address that soon with fernandes, dybala etc.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 21:32:41
I will still be surprised if he goes.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 21:34:07
Exactly dsg

If we had more than 1 player who can create it would ease the pressure off that 1 player

But having wide players that stay wide can help with creating space.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 21:52:54
Why surprised jerd?

5.) 30 Jul 2019 21:54:54
City have both creative midfielders great wide players and attackers who are lethal. We used to play with two wingers and had four great strikers in 1999. It worked then too.

{Ed0333's Note - Don’t worry you have OGS who is the Norwegian Mourinho. I’m not sure how you’re gonna go from counter attacking to attacking football in the space of a few weeks. Surely this takes time to evolve?

6.) 31 Jul 2019 06:51:52
Agree with Ed.
The evolution will take some time.
And at the moment it's only Pogba who can split the defense with such quality passes from midfield.
Hopefully we can sign another quality midfielder to ease the creative burden.

7.) 31 Jul 2019 09:41:39
Angle because I don't think he will leave, I don't think united or ole want to sell him .
I don't think there is anybody in a position to buy him . We will find out soon enough.

8.) 31 Jul 2019 10:06:04
I wouldn't be surprised by it. They've known for quite some time that he wants out.

I'd be disappointed though if he does leave that we don't sign a replacement.

9.) 31 Jul 2019 07:24:20
Agree Ed. So surely it’s best to allow that time to pass rather than simply shut down any chance Ole has. We all agree it will take time, yet people are writing off Ole already. Allow him that time to make the necessary changes.

{Ed0333's Note - I agree Wazza he may not be the man to bring you glory but if you’ve given him the job respect him enough to back him in the transfer market and afford him time. Any manager in any industry just wants time to prove themselves.

Shappy I agree with you about Pogba not maximising his potential but maybe he was promised that Utd would invest in top players and that's just not happened. It's odds on he will go to a Madrid or Juve sooner rather than later and he will get wages equal to or better than he is getting at Utd.

Pogba is a really good player and if he had half decent midfielders and attackers with him we would get more out of him. I don't think his attitude is anything like it should be but I can imagine his mindset. Why am I wasting the best years of my professional life with a team whose players are just not good enough to be challenging for trophies when I could be with a really top top team. If we had better players and were competing every year to win the league and champions league do you really think he would want out? I don't.

Let's give Sanchez a chance. He had a rubbish season last year but maybe I'd we get behind him he might turn things around. Let's be honest he was a really good player at Arsenal and most of us were delighted when he signed.

Think it's unfair to say Lukaku didn't want to play for us. Seems to me he has been frozen out due to Ole wanting to play a different style of attacking football. He will score lots of goals if given good service. Not his fault we had no natural wingers and a poor midfield

Yes. Seen him a few times. Quick player. Knows where the goal is but I woukd not put him anywhere near the elite level of strikers and doubt he will ever reach that level.

Out midfield is woeful. They don't protect the defence and don't assist the strikers enough either. I wish we had a Carrick in our team. He was never glamorous but he knew how to play alright. Get a proper midfield sorted and our strikers will get loads of goals.

Two memories for me. First that semi final v arsenal in 99. My cousin got me a ticket but he was an arsenal supporter so I had to sit in the arsenal end. When Becks scored I stood up and cheered. Pure instinct. They came from twenty rows on either side to beat the crap out of me. I got little protection from the stewards who belatedly came and then ejected me from the ground. I missed that goal by giggs and then had to wait outside for my cousin to drive him home! Second memory is of watching the final of the Champions League that season with my twelve year old son who after 70mins turned to me and said that we had no chance of winning. I half agreed but told him that we are UTD and we don't ever give up. Fast forward 20 odd mins and father and son have o e of those very very special once in a lifetime moments as Sheringham and Ole do the business.

Dazw you would soon stop running if you never got a decent pass or had no chance to score in a match.

Ross spot on about Rashford. The burden on him is unfair. He is still young. More than that he is feeding off scraps at best and does not have a reliable source of supply of goal scoring chances nor does he have midfield players who quickly link up to drag opponents out of position to give him more space. Having a good Co striker woukd help too.

Keane would make things far worse. He never made it as a manager because ironically the heart desire passion and sheer professionalism allied to his technical ability thst he had as a player means he cannot tolerate players not up to his standard. It needs a more sophisticated managerial approach to solve our current problems. Sure some players need calling out but others will respond better to cajoling and being inspired. The ones who are not up to scratch will have to go but there is a nice way to do that too.
