Hey Eds any truth in Coman either on Loan or permanent?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - I understand a third party has suggested Coman as an option to Sancho and Ferran Torres.}

1.) 24 Jul 2020 21:00:22
Interesting thanks Ed.

Out of curiosity, in your opinion who is the better player out of the 3? I’ve never seen Torres play and, if I’m honest, haven’t seen great deals of Sancho.

{Ed002's Note - They are all young and are each different - Sancho would be the easiest fit, Torres could be difficult.}

2.) 24 Jul 2020 21:03:02
Ed002 is he a cheaper option so to speak?

{Ed002's Note - Yes he would be.}

3.) 24 Jul 2020 21:42:45
Ed002 how to rate coman in comparison to Sancho?

{Ed002's Note - He is behind the curve.}

4.) 24 Jul 2020 22:56:00
Coman burst on the scene and never kicked in. He’s had 2 big clubs already and not made a lasting impression. That’s all we need to know.

5.) 25 Jul 2020 06:04:19
Eric, The bigger issue with Conan is his constant injuries which are the major reasons for him not being able to make a "lasting impression" at all the 3 big clubs he has played for. I don't think a move to the more physical league would help his injury issues.

If he could stay fit I am sure he would make a good impact.

6.) 25 Jul 2020 08:18:06
Could say the same about Phil Jones.

7.) 25 Jul 2020 08:39:54
Not many players have PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich on their CV by the age of 24. He clearly has a huge amount of talent. He does prefer to play on the left which doesn't make him an ideal alternative to Sancho as we are looking for a right sided player.

However as Deependra has pointed out his injuries have stopped him from progressing as he should have done.

Last time we signed a talented but injury prone player from Bayern Munich it ultimately didn't work out so well.

Potentially great player, but not quite what we need and his injury record is a huge concern.

Steer clear I'd say.

8.) 25 Jul 2020 10:33:25
To my point above. No thanks - we carry enough sick notes as it is. He should go to a less physical league.

9.) 25 Jul 2020 13:46:36
If we sign coman, our first choice front 3 would still be rashford, martial and greenwood which i have no problem with.

10.) 25 Jul 2020 10:44:37
Just as an addition for you guys. I think he's already stated he might retire from football if he gets one more serious injury.
Personally, I wouldn't want my club getting him at this point. He looked a great talent, but never really kicked on.



24 May 2020 12:35:56
With what we have minus Pogba, Rojo, Jones, plus:
Saul, Sancho, Grealish
(Or similar level)

Next summer
Haaland, Koulibaly
(Or similar level)

Raul Jimenez, Ighalo etc signings will support and add depth. Good direction of travel.

With excellent prospects in Greenwood, Garner, Laird, Mengi, Hannibal with Levitt, Williams too. It is fair to say we need better planning for a path to the first team but there’s some quality depth there to challenge the first team.

Utd are well placed with or without Ole. Better prepared than for a long time. If they can solve the football management side out even better.

Utd Road

1.) 24 May 2020 13:08:26
Avoid Koulibaly. He is nearly 30 now amd would cost near £100 million. If you spend money like that one player, he needs to be a lot younger than he is for it to be worthwhile.

2.) 24 May 2020 13:42:55
One of the major aspects that might play a part in dragging the club out of the doldrums is our academy.

Potentially we could name a side like this: Henderson, Laird, Mengi, Bernard, Williams, Garner, Levitt, Mejbri, Ramazani, Greenwood and Hoogewerf

Of which only Greenwood and Williams could say they are already established in the first. While we also have academy players like Tuanzebe, McTominay and Rashford in the first team squad.

Now obviously not all of those lads will make it at the club, but there are quite a few with a really good chance of making it as at least squad players some as first choice players. Henderson, Williams, Tuanzebe, Garner, Mejbri, McTominay, Rashford and Greenwood could all be first choice players within the next 2-3 years. While players like Laird, Mengi and Levitt also have a good chance of stepping up into squad roles.

That gives the club a great platform to work from. Add to that players such as DDG, AWB, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Bruno and Martial who could well be key first team players for the next few years at least. Then the core of a very good squad is there.

2 or 3 top class additions this summer and we have the makings of a league winning side. But more due to the quality coming out of our academy more than anything.

3.) 24 May 2020 16:31:15
Which 2 or 3 signings would they be Shappy, that could see us win the league next year?

4.) 24 May 2020 17:33:19
Sancho and Saul would be game changers for me.
Both so good with possession and on counter.

You can see what type of play we want to go forward with from the type of targets.

5.) 24 May 2020 19:43:47
Mad hatter totally agree re Koulibaly. He is a very good player but he is nowhere near the quality of Van Djik or Laporte. Must be younger and better options. I would be tempted to let Bailly have a full season.

6.) 25 May 2020 12:58:25
Mumbles I didn't necessarily mean win the title next year. My point was more that we would have so many quality young players that we wouldn't necessarily need to sign too many more top players to have a squad capable of winning the league, we would just need some of our players to reach their potential.

In three years time a front three of Sancho, Greenwood and Rashford could arguably be the best in the league if not Europe. While Henderson looks like the best English keeper, and we still have DDG. AWB has the potential to be one of the best full backs in the world, and is probably already the best 1v1 defender. While we have players like Bruno, Fred, Maguire who'll be 28-30 and in their primes, players like Shaw, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Bailly, McTominay, James etc who'll be in their mid-twenties, and young players who might be stepping up to being first team regulars such as Mengi, Laird, Williams, Garner, Mejbri and possibly Bellingham.

So if we sign Sancho, a top young DM, and a top young CB this summer then we will have the core of a great squad that shouldn't need too many other players brought in to complete it. Maybe just a squad player here and there or someone if one of the younger players doesn't work out how we hope.

7.) 25 May 2020 21:22:10
Yes I would agree with all that Shappy. I'm very excited for the future of our great club I must say I think we are in great shape. The foundations are all there and we just need to sprinkle it here and there but we definitely have a strong spine coming to the side. It's been a slow process but I do finally see things falling into place. I just can't wait for things to be back to normal to finally go to the game again.



29 Jan 2020 15:13:06
Hi Ed002 would you happen to know who are the forward players Utd are looking at for January? It would seem they’ve cast a wide net with rumours of Silmani?

Also are some of these random names due to the third party working for Utd checking in on availablities?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about the timings of transfers but can tell you where I know of some level of interest. Aleksandr Sobolev is the only one of the original players that the club were considering buying that cannot be discounted as the others have moved or are not moving right now. The club have, with Spurs, Burnley and RBL, taken a look at Vedat Muriqi but I cannot see him moving this month.

1.) 29 Jan 2020 18:07:15
*searches Sobolev on YouTube.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 19:16:30
Just did. Sign him up! :)

3.) 30 Jan 2020 07:29:28
Would he brake his nose to score a goal?

4.) 30 Jan 2020 23:58:58
Big, burly looking lad, with an awareness of where the goal is in tight positions. Looks the type who would, UR.



23 Jan 2020 17:54:34
Just heard Utd have been asking around a lot for high profile players but are getting flat out turned down due Ole and lack of strategy.

Only one coming up could be Dembele in Summer.

Big fallout with Andreas and most of squad. Gomes related and who is now willing to stay but wants time.

Utd Road

1.) 23 Jan 2020 18:23:31
No surprise there we are hardly an attractive prospect, poor on the pitch, clueless off it.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 12:53:00
Utd Road, do you mean Moussa Dembele from Lyon or Ousman Dembele from Barcelona? I am assuming the striker from Lyon. The rumours make sense that some players say no, given our current situation. And if this fallout means that Andreas sits and Gomes gets more of a chance, I am all for it.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:28:03
Moussa - Ed002 has said we have interest along with a Chelsea I think.

Summer deal only is what I read.

Apparently there’s big issues in the dressing room a lot of it stemming from Young being sold, amount playing time Andreas gets over Gomes and others. Martial has been one of the most vocal and said it to Ole.

Utd seems as joke and to be a right laughing stock to a lot of players now.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 17:26:47
We won't attract stellar signings with ole in charge . He is now coming out with Cantona quotes, can't build a roof first, without foundations crap, sure he reads of a script. We won't sign any players untill the new manager comes in the summer, because we can't carry on with this puppet being in charge.
Sad times at this club, glad Chelsea are crap too, or we would be 15 points of top 4.



21 Jan 2020 18:45:09
Ornstein on Piatek: "Milan either want to sell him for €35m or loan him with an option to buy and within that option, there would need to be some favourable conditions that would turn that option into an obligation. "

Sharing is caring brothers and sisters

Right old goal hanger of player on a loan would be banging.

Utd Road

1.) 22 Jan 2020 02:48:41
Wow. in span of 6 days. I am writing again.

"We do not do sensible dealing here" otherwise we wouldn't be "looking" at even in 21st day of window for down to barebones team.

Kante Pogba Bruno.

Utd Road

{Ed047's Note - such a shame to ruin a possibly great midfield with Pogba 🤦‍♂️

1.) 21 Aug 2020 14:25:56
Funnily enough I suggested a Kante / Henderson swap a couple of weeks ago. Massive fan of Kante, not as effective as he was a couple of seasons ago but hasn't always been played in a favoured role over that time and has had some injury issues recently.

The midfield above would be outstanding in my opinion.

2.) 21 Aug 2020 14:53:35
Would much prefer a de gea Kante swap.



03 Jun 2020 19:51:43
Anyone think Utd are training for the FA Cup and Europa really?

In comparison to the state of a lot of returning players, we look like we actually have games to play.

Utd Road

1.) 04 Jun 2020 07:32:27
Why? If City’s van is upheld, even for only 1 year, then 5th gets ECL, and we are only 3 points behind 4th. I think we will see some big moves both up and down.

2.) 04 Jun 2020 07:33:12
I think due to the nature of how the return is proposed we will be focusing on the league games first as all cup games are planned for August.

If we can pick up our form from where it was when the break happened then we stand a good chance of getting top 4.

However, while we have been able to get players like Rashford and Pogba back from injury so everyone else has also managed to get their injured players back. For example before the break our next game was against a Spurs side with no Kane or Son.

It will be interesting to see how the return works.

3.) 04 Jun 2020 09:54:20
The Fa Cup final is scheduled for August 1st I believe. Would be delighted if we can get to finals of both competitions.

4.) 04 Jun 2020 10:38:05
Damon I'd be delighted if we got to the final of either. As much as I love winning the FA cup I think I would prefer for us to win the Europa League just for the guaranteed qualification to next season's UCL.

Although ideally I would rather we qualified by finishing 4th or higher. I certainly don't want to be relying on a court case for another club to go in our favour in order to get UCL qualification.

5.) 04 Jun 2020 12:12:29
Exactly I agree. Top 4 with a trophy or two would be a fantastic finish to the season. Trophies is what gets u going and it seems a very long time ago we won the Europa League in 2017. It seems a lot longer than it is when you go a couple of seasons without a trophy. Quite a lot of young players in this squad and it can only be good for them to get a trophy under their belts.



03 Jun 2020 19:49:53
Hey Eds and all

A bit of what/ if

Say the EPL goes ahead (I’d be amazed) what if say relegation threatened team has a CV19 breakout with 3+ players and have to self isolate some players. They may not be able to field a team for games or play inferior players.

Is there a plan for this sort of scenario and also could it be possibly exploited?

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - They would use the rest of the squad and younger players.}

1.) 03 Jun 2020 20:33:08
Sure a team in relegation fight in 2nd Division Germany, full team isolated on first game back and got postponed.

I think if a first team players gets a positive test I think under guidelines anyone they been close too for period of time has to isolate.

So it could mean a full team isolation. I think 🤔.

2.) 03 Jun 2020 21:30:26
Seems a farce in that case.
Very unfair on a team affected.
I really don’t see it happening.

Players will be getting injured and hardly rest going into the next season. It’s about money not players or fans.

3.) 04 Jun 2020 03:23:11
There will be no integrity in whatever result project restart yields. I feel sorry for the clubs lingering around the relegation places.

4.) 04 Jun 2020 07:34:18
It will happen, there's too much money involved for it not to happen.

5.) 04 Jun 2020 13:55:08
I might be wearing a tinfoil hat but I think a soon as Liverpool have won it and all clubs on even games it will get called.

Depends on any second waves and public appetite if there are 500 people a day dead, rate of .



31 May 2020 14:51:29
What are people’s thoughts on Hannibal Mejbri?

I just seen some videos of him and he looks very good. I know YT can make anyone look good but 15 mins of quality is impressive in a year.

He plays like Beckham but a bit quicker.

Looks an absolute prospect *****

I could see him as the long term Pogba replacement.

Utd Road

1.) 31 May 2020 15:11:48
I posted quite a while back on Mejbri, looked a player in what I saw of him. Cost about £9m from Monaco from memory but what I saw was a bit and I stress a bit reminiscent of Ronaldinho style of player. Doesn’t mean he would attain that level but should be given a chance and perhaps even this season if for example we can’t get top 4 in the last couple of games or in the cup.

2.) 31 May 2020 15:17:42
Club paid a tone of money he better be good. He looks good if any of the videos of him is anything to go by, hopefully he makes the first team next season.

Maybe he'll eat a few chunks off Shaw too.

3.) 31 May 2020 17:53:22
Good one unruly

Sorry RM I missed that post.
The lad looks to have it all, good challenge on him and strong.

I’m really keen to see how he gets on.

4.) 31 May 2020 18:55:28
Utd Road

Posted back at the beginning of the season about August/ September about him. Has that invention about him, one of those that can go either way but has real talent. When I saw him I was struck by the fact he didn’t play by numbers, there was a freestyle about him . He is getting to the age where we need to find out if he can translate it to first team games. The greats can and you see how they show its natural, much of it mental when they arrive on the pitch.

5.) 31 May 2020 22:02:07
Not afraid to get stuck in either. Ed001 and I had a conversation about him and it seems he has his head screwed on too.

6.) 01 Jun 2020 10:13:36
I agree with Red Man, there are shades of Ronaldinho about him. At times he toys with the opposition, and he plays well of the cuff.

He looks like he will fill out reasonably well too, not a huge guy, but athletic. He could be a potentially special player. But there's a long way to go before that. If he keeps his head down, stays grounded and works hard he will have a great chance of becoming a top top player.



30 May 2020 06:50:28
Hey Ed
Has there been any push back on neutral grounds?

It is a disadvantage and undermines the spirit of the league. For example Man Utd Sheff Utd is supposed to be at a neutral ground.

I’m surprised clubs have agreed.

Utd Road

{Ed002's Note - If the clubs don't agree to the solution then the alternative is to end the season now. The police have identified 12 high risk games of which at least 6 or 7 will take place at a neutral venue.}

1.) 30 May 2020 20:26:23
I can see that for sure but don’t see it making that much of a difference. People will mix in groups regardless. Seems like a dumb idea altogether to come back.

I just don’t see how there can be any sporting integrity playing reverse legs in empty / neutral grounds. More so for those at the bottom.

EPL should draw a line under it as it is and let the scouse ask for title if they want it. Play out the FA cup and European games in August as a preseason.

Seems like the most logical and safest way to go on.

I’m not sure it makes sense unless it’s a bargain.

We have Shaw and Williams and so it would be one and one out. More pressing matters in Sancho and other opportunistic bits with Thiago and maybe Telles (again creates problems) .

Would like us to pay up and get Sancho in NOW.

Dortmund have only one market for Sancho this summer.
Next summer his value drops but there maybe more options.
Agent fees caps are also planned.

Sancho can push this, his agent can change their costs and Dortmund said all the same things when they sold Dembele. Selling clubs are termed so for a reason.

It’s going to happen.

I think the Europa is better than the FA Cup now.
Guarantees UCL
Super Cup Final

Might not be so prestigious and maybe shows how the FA Cup has fell but the Europa edges it just for me.
