Hi Ed002,
Do United consider Dean Henderson as their first choice Goalkeeper in the near future?
Does the club have any specific plan for him.

Finally, will the club be open to offers for De Gea?

TrueRedDevil

{Ed002's Note - De Gea signed a new contract about six months ago and is the clear first choice. I am sure that Manchester United would like to keep Dean Henderson but they will be aware that some high profile sides are looking for goalkeepers this summer and both PSG and Spurs have been watching Henderson.}


1.) 14 Feb 2020 11:45:45
Personally I would prefer to sell DDG this summer and bring Henderson back as first choice.

I have a sneaky feeling Henderson will get the nod for England at the Euro's and could have an absolute stormer of a tournament and we could see several sides push to sign him this summer.


2.) 14 Feb 2020 14:31:55
Absolutely agree shappy, if psg want a utd gk hopefully we can get them to show interest in the one that earns 400k and looks to be on a decline.


3.) 14 Feb 2020 14:52:34
Good luck shifting de gea with a long contract and big wages and with his reputation not what it once was after a string of poor performances.

We will have to sell henderson as he won't want to be number 2 or go on a perpetual loan cycle.


4.) 14 Feb 2020 14:27:24
ED002 is there any interest in DDG?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing noteworthy. He was third choice on Juventus' list but they resolved their problem with Wojciech Szczesny signing a new deal.}


5.) 15 Feb 2020 01:35:30
De Gea has probably been our stand out player again this season bar 1 or 2 errors.

Made a lot of top saves kept us in games.

For me still the best in the league.


6.) 15 Feb 2020 07:31:32
Probably the only area of the pitch where we have a very strong group of players to pick from.


7.) 15 Feb 2020 09:16:28
I am with Shappy on this. DDG doesn’t command his 6 yard box let alone the penalty area. Brilliant shot stopper but if I am a defender when a cross comes in I would have that lack of command in my mind. For me I wouldn’t have given him the big fancy new contract and would have given Henderson a chance this season. I definitely would next season, if we could shift DDG.


8.) 15 Feb 2020 17:00:35
Stone the crows me and Red Man agree on something.

On a serious note Red Man is right about the lack of command from DDG. I would say this is partially what leads to us conceding so many individual errors.

DDG for me is a world class shot stopper. But there isn't any other areas of goalkeeping where you would call him world class.

Distribution? Collecting high balls? 1v1's? Command of his area? Organisation? Although not a key metric he has only saved one penalty in 5 years.


9.) 15 Feb 2020 17:29:19
I too agree with Red Man here.
Henderson is showing a lot of promise at 22 and he is an ambitious lad.


10.) 15 Feb 2020 18:53:28
Bearing in mind that top goalies can play til their mid thirties and mature later than outfield players why not groom Henderson over the next few years by letting him go out on loan to good sides to get great experience then phase out DDG.

{Ed002's Note - Why would he agree to that?}


11.) 15 Feb 2020 19:00:25
If you played in defence you had to face forward and trust the keeper behind you. If there was any doubt it affected your decision making and concentration.


12.) 16 Feb 2020 15:15:51
ED 02 Maybe someone could talk to Henderson and explain that a lawyer or doctor or engineer has to train for a long time and do an apprenticeship, then practice as a junior before ultimately taking on increasingly more complex, responsible roles. That is a template for long term success. It would not harm Henderson to stay at a club like Sheffield Utd for another season or two.


13.) 16 Feb 2020 18:29:52
Salford, did you say the same about a 17 year old Messi, or Ronaldo, or Rooney. What about Donnarumma? He has been AC Milan's first choice since he was 18.

Henderson turns 23 this year. What's the phrase, "if your good enough then your olde enough".

Henderson is hungry and talented with a determination to improve. He is ready, PSG are looking at him.


14.) 16 Feb 2020 18:49:38
Poor old Romero. Probably the best backup in the Prem and good enough to start in most of the teams. When DDG-gate was in full swing I would have been happy with him as the first choice. Maybe it says a lot about his ambition that a World Cup finalist GK is content watching every game.


15.) 16 Feb 2020 20:09:11
Shappy it's different for goalies. Apart from The Milan keeper it is so rare to get young keepers for two reasons. Firstly their position needs a mental maturity that is usually lacking in young players and secondly the very best goalies need to be physically imposing. DDG is rightfully accused of not dominating his box and I am convinced his comparatively slight physique contributes to this.


16.) 16 Feb 2020 21:29:04
Salford, remind me again how old DDG was when he was first made our No.1.

What about Buffon at Parma, or Casillias at Real Madrid.

Keepers are playing regularly for top sides long before there 22nd birthday.

Henderson is ready, he has the joint most clean sheets in the EPL.

Looks like Josh King will arrive before the deadline.

A second bid has gone in and looks likely to be accepted.

TrueRedDevil

1.) 31 Jan 2020 11:30:56
who said that?


2.) 31 Jan 2020 11:52:10
I just don't know if it's a permanent or loan deal?


3.) 31 Jan 2020 12:08:09
Would be quite ironic if we did sign him. We are short up front with Rashford being out, so go and sign Josh King - who is I believe currently out injured?


4.) 31 Jan 2020 12:21:26
I going to throw it out. Greenwood goes to Bournemouth on loan in exchange for us signing King.


5.) 31 Jan 2020 12:37:43
Doesn't that defy the point of signing him? We are in the market for a striker as Ole wants a different option up top but also because we are short on numbers.


6.) 31 Jan 2020 12:55:55
So in a month we've gone from talking about signing Haaland to talking about signing Josh King, a player who's managed three goals this season .


7.) 31 Jan 2020 13:14:40
I can’t understand this one. Why Josh King? He’s hardly prolific.
I heard something earlier that Ole told him after a recent Bournemouth game that he’d bring him back to United.
If that’s true then it’s ridiculous, he’s scored 3 goals this season.

{Ed047's Note - sounds like just what you need and he’s out with a hamstring injury until 22.02.20. What could go wrong 🤷‍♂️😉


8.) 31 Jan 2020 13:32:26
I’d take a punt on Dries Mertens. Quality player.

{Ed002's Note - Not going to happen.}


9.) 31 Jan 2020 13:51:43
Is he going elsewhere Ed002 or staying at Napoli?

{Ed002's Note - Try the appropriate page where it has been dealt with.}


10.) 31 Jan 2020 15:06:53
we would be better of putting a advert on ebay striker wanted.


11.) 31 Jan 2020 15:30:55
I am available. Am a mature 50yrbold so no late night social media stuff to worry about. Would not demand huge wages and I can run around for at least 20mins which is as much as some of our overpaid prima Donna's seem to manage. Plus I can misplace a pass with the best of them.


12.) 31 Jan 2020 15:32:41
Won’t happen. No need for King long term so makes little sense.


13.) 31 Jan 2020 18:50:03

Thanks Shawthing. I won't let you down. Well not for the first 20mins.


 

 

14 Jan 2020 14:56:36
Italian journalist Fabio Santini reporting Koulibaly will be a United player in the summer.
Deal finalised for 60m by all parties.

He seems quite reliable as he reported about Ancelotti to Everton.

TrueRedDevil

1.) 14 Jan 2020 15:38:39
Would be a strange one of true. BOTH Maguire and Koulibaly prefer to play on the left hand side of a centre back pairing. Seems odd to spend another huge fee on a player who plays the exact same position as a player we spent 80m on last summer.

Also 60m is a long way short of the 100m+ they have demanded every other time a club has come in for Koulibaly.

Personally looking at our squad and what we need I would put both Fabian Ruiz and Milik ahead of Koulibaly as Napoli players we should sign.


2.) 14 Jan 2020 16:31:02
Koulibaly is far better than the very very average Maguire who hasn't really improved us.


3.) 14 Jan 2020 16:33:05
I feel Koulibaly can be a fantastic partner for Maguire.
He has pace and power. Both stand at 6ft 5.

60m seems not too bad for a proven CB in today's market.


4.) 14 Jan 2020 16:36:03
Unless we look to go to a 3 shappy. Lindelof, Maguire and koulibaly. Let’s say Poch comes in, he did like to play that formation so that makes more sense.


5.) 14 Jan 2020 17:06:24
No chance £60m ed002 says north of £100m and massive wages, "very very expensive".


6.) 14 Jan 2020 17:08:31
I think ED002 wrote something saying offers around €100-120million for him.

That alone would rule is out.


7.) 14 Jan 2020 17:45:34
Maybe we are trading Lingard for the other £40 million 😁.


8.) 14 Jan 2020 18:12:11
they turned down 102 mill in the summer say some reports. can only see it being right if it's 60 mill plus Phil jones- Napoli have seen Smalling this season and thought if that boy jones is half as good.


9.) 14 Jan 2020 18:49:58
It unlikely however if it is true none of us should moan. Most were calling for him in the summer.
Always questions around if a purchase is the right fit but he would absolutely improve our defense no matter who he is paired with.


10.) 14 Jan 2020 20:42:08
what if he get a serious injury and can not play next season.


 

 

13 Jan 2020 04:29:29
Anyone seen Boubakary soumaré play?
Rumours that United's scouts have been following him closely this season.

Apparently, the chief scout was spotted yesterday watching Lille's match.

TrueRedDevil

1.) 13 Jan 2020 08:41:39
Nope, but isn't he a young kid who will cost a fortune to buy?


2.) 13 Jan 2020 09:50:34
I haven't seen him play yet, seen him labelled as the new Pogba.

A lad who has caught my eye a few times is Ibrahim Sangare of Toulouse.

Good defensive skill set, strong, quick, mobile, good reading, clean in the tackle, great passing range and very good dribbler. Strong all round midfielder.


3.) 13 Jan 2020 10:15:40
The midfielder that keeps catching my eye is Alex Kral who plays for Spartak Moscow. I have watched him a few times for his club and also for his country, each time he has really impressed me. Great technique, good passing abilities and his reading of the game is brilliant, can also get his foot in where it hurts as well. Definitely has a big future ahead of him, check him out if you can.


4.) 13 Jan 2020 11:05:04
I like the look of that camavinga player he looks unreal.


5.) 13 Jan 2020 22:02:26
Think Camavinga will go to Real sadly. Who knows the 'Ole will play the youth' card may work though .


6.) 13 Jan 2020 23:19:23
Canavinga looks years off having the physicality required for his position in the Prem and seems to spend most of his time on the deck.
Snap him up!


 

 

10 Jan 2020 18:02:13
Bruno Fernandes transfer could be announced any moment per Portuguese media.
Sporting's delegations are apparently negotiating the fee.

TrueRedDevil

Anyone reliable reporting this?


2.) 10 Jan 2020 19:08:38
Until he's holding up the shirt next to Ole I don't believe a thing anymore lol.


3.) 10 Jan 2020 19:11:58
Sports witness broke it down, every station in Portugal saying the same thing. Obviously Portuguese press can been unreliable, but there’s not many conflicting reports.


4.) 10 Jan 2020 19:20:58

Brandon Williams had a shocker. Good experience for the boy to learn from.
I understand the need to rotate. 2 days is hard to recover and we have another game in 2 days.

The game lacked quality until Bruno came on. He was on another level to rest of the players on the pitch.

TrueRedDevil

1.) 21 Feb 2020 07:07:11
He's a young lad just playing too many games and in a very demanding position as that. Considering how Lingard/ Perreira having shockers throughout the season, it's not that bad.

{Ed047's Note - if posters didn’t go over board to start with it wouldn’t be so bad.

The guys young and needs time to see if he will actually turn into a quality player rather than labelling him as that in his first few games.


2.) 21 Feb 2020 09:40:58
TRD totally agree BW struggled but good experience for him in those conditions.

Cannot make excuses for Periera, Lindelof or Lingard they were and have been so many times this season simply awful. OGS I think knows this but with the squad so thin and so many games to play I do not think he has much of a choice.

I do however think that Ighalo looks like a tall Paul Ince:-)


3.) 21 Feb 2020 11:11:51
most of the team struggled last night, shocking performance against an average team.


4.) 21 Feb 2020 11:37:56
An average team that went 2-0 up at the Bernabeu only a few months ago, they looked like they had some quality to me, we weren't great and they aren't a great side but 1-1 and bring them back is an alright result.


5.) 21 Feb 2020 12:15:03
Agree GDS.

Am's goal was also good to see. Aggressive pressing from a throw in, afterburners and cool finish.

When I first saw it I thought their goal should have been a corner to us. We should be able to defend a goal kick though.


6.) 21 Feb 2020 14:51:25
Williams was awful, we should sell him as soon as possible.


7.) 21 Feb 2020 17:44:11
A winter break is good for the legs, but you can lose a little bit of match sharpness. I think the rotation last night had more to do with making sure a few of our squad players can blow out the cobwebs, give them some minutes, and hopefully if we need them in a few weeks time it means it hasn't been 5 or 6 weeks since they last kicked a ball competitively.

The side looked very disjointed, yet we got an away goal and a draw. So should have more than a decent chance of finishing off the tie back at Old Trafford.

Three weeks ago I would have said winning the Europa league was our best chance of getting into the UCL next year.

Yet now, with Bruno looking good and McTominay back soon, coupled with us beating Chelsea, Spurs losing all the players they can rely on to score, and Arsenal in utter disarray I think there is still too good a chance to get top four in the league to just give up on it and focus on the Europa league. Winning cups is tough, you only need one off day and your out. Add to all this that 5th might get UCL football if City don't over turn their ban or it only gets reduced to one season.

{Ed047's Note - Arsenal in utter disarray! 😂😂😂😂


8.) 21 Feb 2020 18:53:07
gds if they were that good how come they did not get out of the group then.


9.) 21 Feb 2020 22:30:57
Ed047, sorry I hadn't checked the table when I made that comment. Arsenal have drawn HALF there games and have only won one more than they lost, sitting in 10th placed. Your right Arsenal are having a great season.

I like Arteta, he seems like a nice guy. But he is an Arsene Wenger lite. You still have the same problem since Viera and Gilberto left, soft centered and fold when the going gets tough. I don't think Arteta is the guy to change that.

I guess we'll see.

{Ed047's Note - no worries mate, it’s not the first time you’ve got something wrong🤦‍♂️

It must be all of those 4 points ahead of us with the well oiled supremely coached and fabulous squad you have that let’s you get a little over excited. 😂😂


10.) 22 Feb 2020 14:46:02
Lol - shows how far Arsenal have fallen that you don't think you are in utter disarray just because you are within 4 points of Utd!

A decade ago that would have been a good return Ed, you might want to recallibrate your targets!

{Ed047's Note - I don’t need to calibrate anything DB I didn’t once mention we were having a great season, Shappy kindly introduced that into the matter. I’m not trying to kid myself how good or bad we are.

That I leave for you guys and United.

My actual point being, if we’re in utter disarray, what on earth are you in, one of the alleged biggest clubs in world football trying as usual to put others down because of your clubs utter ineptitude.

You are woeful fella, poor squad, even poorer manager who if memory serves me correctly, got Cardiff relegated!

But hey you believe the hype. 🤦‍♂️🤣


11.) 22 Feb 2020 15:05:54
Loll Ed047 is at it again.

I don't think anyone believes the hype around United apart from Shappy Ed.

We have been crap for the last few years yet we have won more then you guys have in the last 10 years.

Arsenal are a big club too and should be doing better then what they are.

{Ed047's Note - I know mate, I’ve never said anything other, we foundered under Wenger, huge mistake with Emery and now a few short weeks with Arteta who is a complete unknown.

The players are trying, things have improved, but certainly nowhere near enough and I for one know that and have never stated differently.

It just made me laugh, the state you are and shappy saying we are in utter disarray mate 😂

Also seemed to recall the utter disarray that is Arsenal beat the fabulously well coached United 2-0 last month. 🤣


 

 

18 Feb 2020 04:21:46
What a difference a good set piece taker makes.

Bruno hit the post from a free kick and then assists Maguire from the corner. There will be much more to come from Maguire from set pieces.

TrueRedDevil

1.) 18 Feb 2020 08:32:02
To be fair Maguire has missed quite a few chances from set pieces this season, west ham and newcastle away spring straight to mind. He even mentioned it in his post match interview.


2.) 18 Feb 2020 09:20:20
DSG he missed a sitter at Arsenal too.


 

 

03 Feb 2020 11:16:51
Hi Ed001,
Do you rate Odion Ighalo and is he a good short term option?
I see many already bashing him without even kicking the ball.

TrueRedDevil

{Ed001's Note - on form he was excellent and Man Utd wanted to sign him from Watford. However he is very inconsistent and often tries to do too much. If you get the on form Ighalo, then he will be a great signing as a short term loan, as I can't see him maintaining his form for long. The main worry would be that he puts in everything to win a permanent move and then coasts if he gets it. As a loan I don't really see him being a problem. He certainly suits a counter attacking style.}


1.) 03 Feb 2020 11:36:36
Thanks Ed001. Relieved to hear that.

{Ed001's Note - I think most people are just unhappy about bringing in a loan of any kind, as it is seen as something 'lesser' teams do.}


2.) 03 Feb 2020 12:55:45
At the end of the day, if he scores 10 plus goals then he has been a good signing. If not, he goes back to China. Martial is hardly making a case to play up top.


3.) 03 Feb 2020 13:47:20
The agent link should go unnoticed. Same at Cardiff he signed all his agents clients.


4.) 03 Feb 2020 13:58:49
i for one think we have done some good business this last window. Yes, we dragged it out for a bit but in the end we got 2 players who solve out current needs but don't drag us away from what the manager wants to do with the squad. ighalo could be a good loan even if begets and the initial signs from bruno are good.


5.) 03 Feb 2020 15:15:06
The way I see this Ighalo deal is simple. We needed someone, world class options and top targets were not available. So we either rhad to look at a cheaper option which would impact our ability to sign someone in the summer or a short term loan. Again not many world class players are available on loan. The last one I could think of was Falcao who struggle both with us and Chelsea. Nor do teams loan out a free scoring striker in good form in the middle of a season.

So our options were simple:

1, sign a lesser player for a "smaller" fee and not sign someone in the summer. (Josh King, 30m) .

2, sign a player on loan who is playing for a European side but is either out of form or has been a disturbance in the squad so their club is happy to get him off the books mid season. (Slimani loan from Monaco) .

3, sign a player on loan from a league that is not currently playing. This way the player isn't in good or bad form and the club might be prepared to let a player go when their league isn't being played. (Ighalo loan from China) .

4, sign no one and expect an 18 year old Greenwood to play 90 minutes of practically every game between now and the end of the season. while praying that Martial doesn't pick up another injury.

Out of the four options signing Ighalo seems like the best solution. Plenty can be said about the club allowing such a situation to happen. Lukaku should have been replaced in the summer when top targets would have been available. But considering where we were in January, I think the signings of Bruno and Ighalo (on loan) are about the best we could have hoped for. Plus Spurs did try and hijack the Ighalo deal so we aren't the only club to rate him as a good short term solution.

The only way the Ighalo deal could turn sour is if he has a storming 6 months scores 15 goals which convinces the club to sign him on a long term deal.


6.) 03 Feb 2020 15:47:22
First time he scores we'll probably sign him up on a five year deal . i mean we're dealing with the same geniuses who gave Moyes a six year deal, made OGS permanent manager at a time when there was no need to, sold Lukaku and did'nt replace him etc. etc. etc.


7.) 03 Feb 2020 16:24:36
First goal, and we’ll sell Rashford too.

Why do we need two players that can score a goal?


8.) 03 Feb 2020 21:48:16
Shappy if he scores 15 he deserves a deal why would that be it turning sour?
That doesn't make sense at all.

Hi Ed001,
How do you analyze OGS's record against the top sides.
In your perspective, what is he doing differently against these sides.

Also do you think he is growing in his current role or will he be given time to grow in the role ?
Do us fans deserve to be optimistic or is it a false dawn again ?

TrueRedDevil

{Ed001's Note - he is not doing anything differently, they are (as in the top sides) and it suits the way Ole plays. Top sides come out to attack you, which leaves space to counter into, lesser sides sit deep and try to counter on you.

I don't see that anything has changed at all. I have seen nothing that makes me think he is doing anything special. You have a goalkeeper that was the best in the world until recently and a world record fee spent on a centre-back, a top class defensive right back, but you struggle to defend and are wide open. It just seems like expectations have been lowered by fans and excuses made for mediocrity because Ole was a hero as a player.

However, fans have every right to be optimistic. There are a lot of young players being bedded in and there will be money made available to spend. It is not a either or situation in terms of optimism and false dawns. You can be optimistic, even if you are not looking like you have the right man to lead you back to the top. At least he has put things back on an even keel and stopped most of the rot. There are still signs of things getting better in the long term.}


1.) 09 Dec 2019 17:09:23
One of the papers did a mini League this morning of the games where the top 6 have payed each other. United were level top with Liverpool, miles ahead of the other 4. That says we are good enough but need to find a way to break sides down.

{Ed002's Note - Actually, it doesn't mean anything.}


2.) 09 Dec 2019 17:49:38
Liverpool were like that for the last 20 years. They always turned up against the big boys. The battered us 4-1 at Old Trafford and Gerard ran over and kissed the camera. 3 months later Gary Neville was kissing the premier league title.

You play 38 games and you finish where you deserve. I would rather wins against Bournmouth, West Ham, Newcastle, Palace, Wolves, Sheffield United and Villa than beating Spurs and City.

Wonderful performances, but don't come out if we drop points against Everton with the same old excuses. The team has shown what they can do. If Ole can't get that out of them more often than not, then get a manager with a history of improving players.

Means nothing or not much more than nothing ajh imo. There are 19 other teams in the leagueif we only perform v 6 of them it won't get us very far.

Im not suggesting that we can't do better only that we havnt done.
Playing teams who us attack suits the way ole sets his team out. It suits our players strengths. But he has not found a system yet or seems to struggle to adapt our system to play against teams who don't give them acres of open space to run into.
That's the key part of the job of any coach.
Lets hope ole and the players can figure it out. I have some renewed hope that they can but my confidence is fragile.

Ole is training us for the European Super League. We only beat the big teams, we'd be champions every year!

Are spurs a top team that come out and attack? People always making these sweeping statements .
City attacked left space we exposed it .
Spurs where typically Jose sat deep and played long ball after long ball .
Injuries have hurt us and a lack of form from players and the team for various reasons .
Rashford for example is playing well at the moment regardless of it's a team that are in the so called top 6 or an international team. Same goes for a few others .

There’s definitely been an improvement for me. This is seen by us scoring more goals and creating more chances. Hopefully we can get a bit more consistency now which is what is letting us down.

Yes spurs are a top team that come to attack. Cl finalists. Scoring more goals now than they were weeks ago too. They did attack us and left space galore behind their rb which was well exposed.
Its not a sweeping statement our results accident better sides shoes that as do our results against lesser teams because we have not been breaking them down often enough.

I too agree with Red Man here.
Henderson is showing a lot of promise at 22 and he is an ambitious lad.

Shappy, if we go for Jack Grealish, then Bruno will most probably play further behind alongside a defensive midfielder.
Therefore, we definitely need a RW.

As you suggested, Adama Traore looks like an absolute power house this year. Wilfried Zaha is another option.

Lewandowski still doesn't look like slowing down. So Werner moving to Bayern wouldn't make him a automatic starter possibly.

Also, if we go in for Grealish, I believe he may operate more advanced in a 3 man midfield alongside Bruno and McTominay.

Finally, if Sancho and Ziyech are striked off our list, I'm not sure who will be the ideal target for the RW role.

Won't be dissapointed with the above players leaving. The player that really should be shown the door is Phil Jones.

It has been a combination of both.
The players around him hasn't been good. However, his work rate and attitude has been questionable more often than not.

When we signed him initially, I was over the moon thinking what an upgrade he is over Cleverly, Anderson etc, .
But now hope we get a good fee for him and invest it on SMS or Saul or Ruben Neves.

An important attribute of Bruno is his leadership.
He is constantly instructing players where they should be.

Spot on Dodgy regarding Martial.
He can be a world beater if he wishes.

Bruno has excellent vision. Always trying to create oppportunities.
He provided a sublime cross to Maguire, which unfortunately wasn't converted.

He could be our catalyst to unlock defenses.

More of such quality signings please.

McTominay is coming back at a much needed time.
He normally brings the best out of other players with his tenacity and energy in the middle of the park.

And if Pogba comes back next week and turns on his gear, we can end the season on a high note.

Some of the squad players had a chance to impress but didn't take it.
It was a hard watch on the eye.
