Evening Ed.
Are the club close on Timber? Do you expect him to join the club this Summer?


{Ed002's Note - He is an option as has been explained.}

1.) 25 May 2022 16:55:56
Thanks Ed. I’m getting impatient, we’re so slow at conducting business.

2.) 25 May 2022 17:06:07
Ed will we looking to buy two cbs or just the one.

Because we seem to be interested in Torres and Timber, Is it a case that we will look to buy both players as Timber can also cover at RB.

{Ed002's Note - If MU want him as cover he certainly won’t be joining.}•

3.) 25 May 2022 18:39:17
Ole the window isn’t even open.

4.) 25 May 2022 22:03:32
Impatient before the window opens ? going to be a long summer for you.

5.) 26 May 2022 06:19:39
Trouble is our two main CB, Varane and Maguire both have big contracts till 2026, unlikely we can move both on at this stage, I can see only one CB joining at most.

6.) 26 May 2022 08:20:27
I expect to see all of Bailly, Jones and Tuanzebe to leave.

That leaves Maguire, Varane and Lindelof as our only senior CB's.

Of those three Varane has been injury prone this season.

While Maguire has been absolute dung. In fact he's been worse than dung as at least dung sticks to its man and can run.

I wouldn't be surprised to see two CB's come in. Defence is the biggest area that needs fixing and in order to play the way EtH wants he needs specific skills from his defenders.



22 May 2022 10:04:41
Happy Sunday all.
Ed has there been any developments regarding Frenkie De Jong?



{Ed002's Note - Frenkie de Jong (CM) Tolisso upgrade for Bayern Munich but Barcelona don't want to sell although if a significant offer (perhaps €90M) were made their financial situation would mean they would have to consider it. During discussions between Barcelona and Chelsea, options for a number of players were discussed but Chelsea do not again want protracted negotiations which led nowhere over another player last summer - they may make a take it or leave it offer including a player or perhaps two. Manchester City may provide another solution using Laporte as part of the deal - and don't be surprised if PSG or Manchester United switch their attention to him but both have preferred targets.}



17 May 2022 20:58:54
Evening all,
Ed would you mind clarifying the clubs interest in the following players please? I think you said you wanted to avoid full transfer lists but would do some requests?
Frenkie De Jong

Various reports suggest we are close on all three.

In hope!


{Ed002's Note - Have you tried searching?}

1.) 18 May 2022 08:16:11
Thanks Ed - have looked through. No further updates though?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change. What are you expecting?}

2.) 18 May 2022 12:36:02
Think we need to be patient transfer news Old Heart - temptation is to keep asking Ed002 for latest updates but am sure he’ll provide info when he’s good and ready.

3.) 18 May 2022 13:51:56
Those 3 would be great, but IMO a CDM is the most important position for us to target. If we could get those 3 AND a CDM (at the risk of repeating myself Boubacar Kamara's contract expiring makes him an absolute bargain, and he's quality too), that would be an outstanding summer.

Earlier in the season I thought we would need a right winger as a priority too, but Elanga has done well, so if Rashford can regain his form from the last couple of seasons prior to this one, I don't think a winger is quite as urgent now.



16 May 2022 20:51:34
Evening Ed, any truth to the Timber rumours? They suggest a deal to United is close with personal terms already agreed.


{Ed002's Note - The club need to act responsibly, if they are unable to do that, it would be a huge shame. If they want to buy an Ajax player they should approach Ajax and no the player.}



16 May 2022 14:35:41
Ed, reports suggest United have reached a verbal agreement with Timber, any truth to this?


{Ed002's Note - If the club have gone direct to the player for this all hell will break lose. It is not the way to conduct business at all I am afraid.}

1.) 16 May 2022 23:15:19
We’ve normally had a decent relationship with Ajax so I hope we aren’t messing about. Conducting business the right way will make life easier for now and the future, the time of throwing our weight around is long over.

Merry Christmas one and all.
Ed - would it be possible to have one of your epic ins and outs overviews re: club transfer business during Jan?
In hope.


{Ed002's Note - Ask in a few days and we will see what can be done.}

1.) 22 Dec 2021 12:29:38

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t see why you are asking

2.) 22 Dec 2021 15:26:38
Guess you missed the poor joke, Edo666, he said in hope, thought he was talking to me. ?.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m still lost

3.) 22 Dec 2021 18:12:37
Clue is in the name Ed.



23 Nov 2021 13:28:29
Ed, rumours are that Poch could join United this side of Christmas (! ) .

Are these rumours accurate?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly comment on when things will happen.}

1.) 23 Nov 2021 15:02:02
I think a better phrased question would be - Ed can you confirm that Poch has indeed shown a desire to coach UTD and are UTD making any efforts to negotiate with PSG for Poch?

2.) 23 Nov 2021 15:08:35
With a win tuday, they will offer Carrick a five year deal.

3.) 23 Nov 2021 19:43:10
He's the Messiah!

{Ed014's Note - the gift that keeps on giving!

4.) 23 Nov 2021 19:47:22
It's in his DNA.



22 Nov 2021 17:12:25
Evening all,
Plenty of hype around the Poch to United, ZZ to PSG idea today.
Lots of suggestions this could happen over the course of the next week or so too.

Could our board be about to do something sensible?!


1.) 22 Nov 2021 17:33:35
On the week of important CL fixtures? Seems unlikely.



22 Sep 2021 18:22:17
Hope everyone is keeping well.
Ed, what will be the clubs priority ins and outs over the next two windows?



{Ed002's Note - The club will sell fringe players like Dalot and Telles, perhaps Matip, Pogba will leave as a Free Agent, Henderson may get a loan, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial may be able to resume their careers elsewhere. The club will look to add a DM, CM and perhaps an AM.}

1.) 22 Sep 2021 21:45:58
Looks like midfield is the priority.

2.) 23 Sep 2021 07:21:24
Thanks Ed!



30 Aug 2021 22:07:35
Getting that feeling it's going to be a turbulent day tomorrow!

Rumours surfacing we're in contact with Wolves for Neves.

How can the club and the incoming manager has separate transfer targets? Surely this compromises the manager?

Thanks for the reply Ed. Will the player be joining United? Thought I’d ask you for a bit of a sobering insight, social media can make you feel drunk with confusion!
