Another youngster’s name being linked with United: David Brooks

So, is Ole trying to emulate Class of 92? Fergie’s Fledglings?

If so, what name will they take in the media?

Solskaer’s Starlings?

Gunnar’s Groupies?

Ole Gunner’s Runners?

Solskjaer’s Sproutlings?

Have to be better than Pogba’s Ego.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 18:36:32
“Gunnar’s Groupies. ” Oh dear. That’s all sorts of wrong.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 18:37:38
Perhaps your over analysing all the players were being linked with.

Judge him on how the team performs next season.

Ole's baby faced assassins if we're targeting young players.

Hi Eds,

Apologies for speculative nature of the question but, if Real Madrid do indeed sign Kepa Arrizabalaga in 2018 (even as soon as January) do you think RM will still try to sign David DeGea?

Many thanks for any info you might be able to provide.


{Ed002's Note - No, I they would not have a need.}

1.) 04 Dec 2017 18:23:30
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to reply Ed002!

{Ed002's Note - I was on a train so I had time.}



17 Feb 2017 08:35:28
Hi there Ed002!

Sorry to bother you but would you be good enough to shed any light on rumours that Lindelof has signed a pre-contract agreement with United, apparently warding off strong interest from Roma, who apparently want him to replace Kostas Manolas?

Thanks again for your precious time!


{Ed002's Note - Lindelhof cannot agree a pre-contract with Manchester United as he is not out of contract in the summer.}

1.) 17 Feb 2017 13:57:08
Thank you Ed002 for your swift and definitive response. Very much appreciated.

2.) 21 Feb 2017 19:19:46
Id rather have the kid from roma he looks dast strong an a perfect fit for the prem.



13 May 2016 13:12:49
Some papers reporting advanced discussions with The Legend Ibrahimavich, wages 300k/ wk not an issue apparently.

He also loves Mourinho (inter past) and would be a short term marquee/ marketing signing to compete with City's growing brand. Then he's off to America. Apparently.

Hail the new King! (lol! )


1.) 13 May 2016 13:42:05
Seems a bit wayward to be honest, latest i've heard is that Jose has offered Zlatan a one year deal but the club are unwilling to meet his demands. Will most likely be playing in the MLS next season.

2.) 13 May 2016 13:49:04
I really hope not excellent player but luxurys that we don't need we've seen falcao come and fail and the same to an extent with swine. Rather build a squad for the future than pay someones big last pay day! Were getting more like city when they got new owners just throwing money around without planning.

3.) 13 May 2016 14:00:46
I would love that.

4.) 13 May 2016 14:06:56
I've said before, I would love to see it happen. We have always been heavily linked with Morata today because of the Mourinho factor which is another player I'd be delighted to have.

5.) 13 May 2016 14:19:38
If Zlatan comes in he will inject a winning mentality into the club. How successful it will be is debatable.
He will however not be a flop like previous ones. it's just how successful it could be.
Martial left, Zlatan centre and someone like mahrez Right would add strength and be a great front 3.
To then have Rashford, lingard, depay, as replacements would give the depth
Would be exciting times.

6.) 13 May 2016 14:47:38
We should learn and act better with what's happening with mr. German.

7.) 13 May 2016 14:51:30
Just thinking of Ibrahimovic in utd shirt makes my balls tingle. He would be perfect. A natural born winner who always has a point to prove.

8.) 13 May 2016 14:54:47
Also using schwieney and Falcao as equivalents is unfair. Both were knackered. No reason to think ibrahimovic would go the same way. He's nearly broken a record for goals scored this season.

9.) 13 May 2016 20:41:04
I personally think he would be a terrific signing! And he definitely should not be compared to Schwein and falcao! RedD totally agree, tried and tested, scoring for fun, fit and a total monster, scoring a goal a game ratio! Yeah French league is poor but he's proved it elsewhere on the big stage! Def worth a punt as a free transfer!

10.) 14 May 2016 01:00:18
People on this site are incredibly harsh on Schwieni. Whenever he plays he is always driving forward, pressing the ball and pushing his teammates on. The keys and quality may not be quite there but he has been no where near our worse performer.

As for Zlatan, it would certainly be a signing to bring back the fear factor which is exactly what's needed.

11.) 14 May 2016 09:01:46
Still believe Bastian will be a great signing and always preferred us this season when he played (with the exception of arsenal of course)

12.) 14 May 2016 03:49:25
I thought we were targeting fast attacking players no?



01 Dec 2015 15:12:21
I might be being too optimistic here but Nick Powell looks in much better shape, physically and mentally.

Does anyone (inside knowledge?! ) know the story behind this? Is he trying to prove himself for a loan/transfer? has he had a chat with a mentor inside OT who's made him hungry again? Or is his contract up for renewal?!


1.) 01 Dec 2015 17:20:11
Just watched some highlights of that game, had a hand in a lot of good in that u21s game. I hope he will keep improving, most importantly having his head right should he wish to be a man utd player. He has bundles of talent.

2.) 01 Dec 2015 18:19:22
He had become disillusioned with the game, with a series of injuries adding to the problem. By all accounts he seems to be giving it a go again, and I would love to see him get things back on track. He made a mistake moving to us before he was ready, and could still be a good player with a bit of luck.

With Solskjaer today saying core of a future squad is already in place, a possible team in a few years might look like the following (including Fernandes as only transfer in) ;


Wan Bissaka



Plenty of potential there.

Just needs a Sporting Director to implement a professional football-driven structure on the club.

Guess we can dream.


1.) 15 Jan 2020 11:37:44
With Levity, the team should be flying.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 11:40:09
Lol, curse the duties-correct!

3.) 15 Jan 2020 14:27:06
We could do with some levity alright.



11 Jan 2020 11:19:17
Just to pour fuel on the rumours about Pochettino taking over in the Summer:

Sounds like we are close to signing Bruno Fernandes, a player Poch wanted in the Summer.


1.) 11 Jan 2020 11:52:20
Very tenuous.

2.) 11 Jan 2020 11:53:53
We also started stocking the toilet with 2 ply quilted toilet roll. He was after that at Spurs but Levy would only buy the 1 ply.

3.) 11 Jan 2020 12:01:15
Love it Mumbles.



12 Aug 2019 10:39:31
Thought another positive from match yesterday was potential emergence of McTominay and Maguire as leaders on the pitch.

Both were seen conferring with each other throughout the match and at the end. Maguire was marshalling the defence, particularly Shaw, and McTominay urging the team to keep focusing even after they’d scored a couple.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 11:58:30
Be careful Wallace calling Maguire a leader.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 12:03:29
Shame mctominay chose to represent Scotland. Could have been the driving midfield force for England in a year or two. Really has come on leaps and bounds. Goes to show hard work and professionalism pays off, few others in the squad should take note.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 12:33:01
I'm delighted he chose to represent Scotland as we're brutal and need all the help we can get.

I feel more sorry for McTominay having to play alongside the likes of Grant Hanley and Barry Bannan.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 12:33:21

You obviously care more about England than I do, I am glad he will get the summer's off every year and give himself chance to stay fresh and be the driving force is our midfield.



09 Aug 2019 09:34:08
Surely those responsible at United must now sit down and reflect upon their dealings in the transfer window, as any good business must.

And surely a sensible business would look at the models of competitors to evaluate and improve their own practices.

You would hope they would look at Man City: they identified a weakness in their squad and moved quickly and professionally to fix it (Rodri and Cancellao) ; or Arsenal, who knew what they needed and moved to dirt it all out, though maybe not quite as slickly as City.

You would hope that they would reflect that, if you don’t pay the money, you don’t get the player (Msn City seem to always pay up or meet the release clause) - or otherwise start to be seen as a bully by others, maybe even approaching Daniel Levy’s reputation.

Bit you get the feeling that those responsible are square pegs in round homes, more business men than football grounded. Perhaps like having a ruthless businessman in charge of a country who has no political savvy and the chaos that causes.

And you would hope that they would conclude that a Director of Football is desperately refer to join all the dots together, through all the teams and contexts at the club.

Now, I can see that they want to change strategy from getting in mercenary older players to bringing in younger players who will form the basis for a solid future, but surely these are clever people who can see that more needs to change at the club if they are to achieve sustained success in the future?


1.) 09 Aug 2019 09:55:38
City don't always pay up and are actually quite disciplined in the market when it comes to the big money acquisitions. How do you think we got maguire, fred and alexis sanchez? City walked away from all these deals because they thought the players were overvalued.

Also its much easier to address their very minimal weaknesses, competition for fernandinho and competition for walker.

The problem for united is that they had so many weaknesses to address, probably up to 5 or 6 and that was just the optimistic and positive fans lol. It was always asking too much for the club to do that in one window and also get rid of the players surplus to requirements.

Weve done well to get a quality right back and a centre back who is better than what we had in some quite key areas. Dan james seems like a punt or pet project for ole so i will reserve judgement on him.

As for arsenal addressing their weakness, is a 32 year old david luiz really that good a signing. If we did that we would have been accused of panicking and thinking short term. Tierney is a promising player but it is still a huge step up he has to make. Ceballos is a tidy player but will be back at madrid in a year in all likelihood. Pepe was very good last season but it is still a lower level and small sample size to go off.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 10:10:06
There maybe ok with the 3 signings?

3.) 09 Aug 2019 10:49:07
Arsenal's signings are all risky, whereas our signings will slot in straightly.
One thing for sure is the academy lads will feature often.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 11:00:23
Surely how successful a transfer window a club has had must come at the end of the season when the players signed can be assessed on their performances?

A players quality is surely measured by performances and not the fee paid for them or who other clubs bought?

If we finish 3rd will everyone say this transfer window was a failure?

5.) 09 Aug 2019 11:13:12
I appreciate that we’re still building but maybe having solid foundations will enable the end product have a greater integrity.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 11:38:47
Imagine if we had signed Luiz instead of Maguire, not sure people would be saying our window was better then!

7.) 09 Aug 2019 11:53:54
Luiz is a much better player then Maguire.

8.) 09 Aug 2019 12:04:09
Im not maguires biggest fan singh but that is the funniest thing I've heard all week. Always good to start the weekend with a good joke.

9.) 09 Aug 2019 12:19:05
Well you will know who is the better player in a years time.

Maguire has played for Leicester and has only been bought for 80 mill becuase he is english and clubs know that we are desperate.

I have never been Maguire's fan and never will be as he is Smalling and Jones Version 2.0 and slightly better.

The biggest joke is that we spent so much money on him and didn't go for Milenkovic or Dias.

We finally got a defender but got the wrong one and Luiz is a much better player having played for PSG and Chelsea and he can actually defend not run around like a headless chicken like Maguire and will end up losing the ball because Maguire thinks he is a midfielder but he needs to concentrate on defending first.

10.) 09 Aug 2019 12:30:53
Its great to know that you will never be a Maguire fan . And he hasn't even kicked a ball for united.
Red whiskey
I agree it put a smile on my face as well.
Along with the fact Luiz actually defends and doesn't run round like a headless chicken and think his a midfielder . Which is probably Luiz biggest issue.

11.) 09 Aug 2019 12:49:25
Singh your joke made my day. Luiz can actually defend? lol.
He is an absolute liability.

12.) 09 Aug 2019 13:22:47
Difference of opinion mate. I just have very high standards and wanted someone better then Maguire.

I actually think Maguire was bought to replace Fellaini's height in the box as that is one thing he is good at which is heading the ball.

85 million for heading the ball wow just wow!

Maguire is just as clumsy as Jones and Smalling.

I would love to be proved wrong and wish Maguire the best of luck at our club but i just don't see it happening.

13.) 09 Aug 2019 13:52:06
Maguire to replace the wig 👍.

14.) 09 Aug 2019 14:41:07

15.) 09 Aug 2019 15:46:56
Singh, what you smoking? You got your hands on that medical grade stuff?

16.) 09 Aug 2019 16:01:29
Luiz is an awful defender.



16 Jul 2019 21:02:37
What with Lukaku departure looking more likely, any inside info or any thoughts on who United should replace him with?

Remember Ed002 mentioning Sebastian Haller, but looks like he’s on his way to West Ham.

Ed also mentioned Steven Bergwijn, but also suggested he might move elsewhere also.

Ed also mentioned Lewandowski as an ideal replacement for a year but surely wouldn’t happen

Guess he might put faith in Martial to move to CF but he hasn't got a great track record in this position.

Maybe also Mason Greenwood, but not sure if he’s ready yet.

Not sure which forwards are available and could do a good job for United.

Possible names might include:

Icardi (though seems high maintenance)

Moussa Dembele (has done well in France)

Krzysztof Piatek: AC Milan

Timo Werner: RBL

Was sim Ben Yedder: mixed reviews about attitude

Guess there’s always OGS!


1.) 16 Jul 2019 21:32:34
Some good options you’ve put there Wallace. It seems rashford is first choice and I hope he steps up but I have my doubts whether he’s a 20+ goal a seasons striker at the moment. Martial can be but his off the ball movement and workrate is atrocious. It’s actually embarrassing. If he put in half the work rashford does he’d be first choice, especially with his finishing.

I am a massive fan of piatek and I think he’d kill it in the premier league. If not him, Dembele or Werner would be my shouts. But we don’t seem to have interest in Werner. Dembele would be worth a punt.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 21:53:38

3.) 17 Jul 2019 01:49:58
I don't think he will be replaced.
Sanchez and martial can provide cover at cf.
Lots of people think martial would be better through the middle.
In a 60 game season rash won't start many more than 40 so that's 20 games up top going for someone to stake their claim to rashfords position.
Right side is a concern but awb will make a big difference there.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 01:44:19
Wasn’t there chat about Justin Kluivert at one stage too.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 08:05:11
Werner would be my personal pick.

Only 23 and has lots of talent. Fast and strong so will fit in well in the Prem too.

He is also known to be a big admirer of Manchester United and has said he would love to play for us. Also 1 year left on his contract I believe.

6.) 17 Jul 2019 08:20:59
Martial is a forward but I'd always played in the wing. It's unfair to judge him as a forward when he plays as a winger.

His work rate though is clearly lacking at times. Like his attitude aswell, it could be and should be better.

Agree Shappy: everything we do is measured in business assets (hence players being given new contracts when they don’t deserve them)

You’d think that they’d realise that business assets are only worth something if the business is successful, hence the need to ensure short term success also, both on and off the pitch, as the value of the brand is just as important to making a profit - and you can only trade off former glory for so long.

Listened to the podcast and backs up everything Ed002 has said about the amateurish way the club is run.

Please please Mr Woodward, get an experienced Sporting Director in to oversea the footballing side of the club, step away from the footballing matters (though appreciate it’s not just you - the whole structure needs a reboot by someone who knows how to organise the footballing side of the club) and focus in the commercial stuff that you’re so good at.

Can see why Poch is allegedly insisting that the club need to get a SD and has the final say about players before he considers joining us.




Click To View This Thread

14 Jan 2020 08:50:36
To be optimistic, IF Poch does come in, he’ll find lots of Potential to work with, given youngsters in first team and reserve teams emerging. Of course he’ll need a few players but he really could hit the ground running.

And I think credit needs to be given to Solskjaer for the transitional role he’s taking as the squad is thinned our. He must know he’s not there in the long term, but he’s doing the job the club needs at the moment t and I think history will thank him for it.

Fosu Mensah in midfield and Bailly making come backs also, sounds like they had decent games. Garner progressing in midfield too.

Come the Summer (and Poch/ Allegri? ) will be a decent pool of young talent (Under 23s plus Mejbri, Axel, Williams, Greenwood, James etc) to work with.

Can’t see any manager - eve SAF - getting results from midfield of Fred and Perriera, so no point sacking OGS at moment (unless to secure Poch before someone else gets him? )

Let’s see how results go after McT and Pogba return.

If OGS is still seen as a rabbit caught in headlights after that, then change managers.

Need two midfielders in Jan. Can see us getting Can and Vidal on loan.

Great post mate, agree with it all, especially about bringing Greenwood on for James earlier, who was just getting knocked over endlessly, giving the ball away or running down blind alleys - impact sub while he develops is the perfect answer.
