Hi ed002, I remember you saying we would look to VDB as a potential Pogba replacement.

Do you know if this spells the end for PP at United? Or is the talks of him potentially renewing his contract with us true.

Overall I'm very excited with this signing, will be a great improvement on the midfield options.


{Ed002's Note - The club have not responded to requests about Pogba.}

1.) 30 Aug 2020 22:38:06
Surely he’s a Fred replacement/ upgrade?

2.) 30 Aug 2020 22:55:55
Cheers Ed. Will be interesting to see how we handle the Pogba situation. Letting him go on a free seems like an awful decision.

3.) 31 Aug 2020 01:13:36
Should part exchange for Messi ;)

4.) 31 Aug 2020 07:24:02
But Prodigal we know Barcelona can’t top it up to get Pogba 😂.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 07:46:47
Pogba will sign a new contract. His agent gave an interview about this a the other week.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 07:49:18
I was thinking the same Eric

Will it be a midfield 3 of van der beek pogba and bruno.

7.) 31 Aug 2020 08:12:03
I wonder if we will move to 3 at the back if that’s the case?

8.) 31 Aug 2020 10:42:44
Then we need 2 wing backs eric.

9.) 31 Aug 2020 12:34:31
Agreed Ken. Said the same on another post - although Dalot is surely a wing back?

10.) 31 Aug 2020 14:38:34
At least means that poor player Mctominay will get less chances.



18 Aug 2020 19:17:48
Sky reporting we're interested in David Alaba alongside Chelsea.

Would make way too much sense to sign him, doubt it's true.


1.) 18 Aug 2020 19:25:11
Forget about Sancho, put all our focus on Alaba if there is any chance of signing him.

But I doubt he would join us.

2.) 18 Aug 2020 19:36:54
Alaba is an excellent player. He can play LB, CM and CB which are all positions where we need quality. He would be an excellent signing but I'd guess he'd end up at City if he was to end up in the Premier League. He'd probably be first choice at CB or LB for them, he's worked with Pep previously and at the moment he has more chance of winning the big trophies there.

3.) 18 Aug 2020 20:40:46
Denials are out already and Christian falk whos a well known German reporter with ties to bayern says it’s not true. Made too much sense for us really we wouldn’t be that smart.

4.) 19 Aug 2020 07:04:44
Sorry but I think we need a special-ist centre back not jack of all trades. He is a good player no doubt and a great squad player but we need to get the very best we can for whichever position we need filling.

5.) 19 Aug 2020 09:24:01
He is beeter than Luke Shaw if not better than all defenders at utd.

6.) 19 Aug 2020 10:24:30
Alaba is a fantastic player and would slot straight into the eleven (at left back for me) . I can’t see it happening though. His age doesn’t fit the recent profile of our signings.

7.) 19 Aug 2020 11:27:25

Alaba is a special-ist LB. He has been one of the best LBs in the world for the past decade. On top of that he is very good at CB and also can play in Midfield. So I think he isn't a "jack of all trades" and is more of master of many trades.

Alaba has been a starting CB for much of this season for a team that has done the domestic double and is in the CL semis.
That is quite an achievement by a "jack of all trades"



29 Jan 2020 10:22:45
Confirmation that our bid for Fernandes has been accepted. He will be a Man Utd player before the window closes now.

Player has been pictured at the airport.

Finally something to smile about!


1.) 29 Jan 2020 11:40:32
Now it's time to start negotiating for a player that we'll sign on the last day of the summer transfer window! Cheers!

2.) 29 Jan 2020 15:21:17
Fortunately, for me at least, there is lots to smile about whether or not the transfer goes ahead.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 18:08:30
You had some good news shawthing?



28 Jan 2020 19:02:43
Fabrizio Romano has confirm United have sent a new improve offer for Fernandes. Agents seem more confident and Bruno could be travelling to Manchester as soon as tomorrow.

Let's hope the club seal this deal.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 19:10:49
Took us all month to pay what he's worth, amazing.

2.) 28 Jan 2020 19:36:32
No it took Barcelona to enter the fray now it's up to the player I'm not sure he's gonae pick us I would imagine his mrs would rather stay in Barcelona than rainy Manchester hope I'm wrong tho.
If he does choose Barcelona them we only have ourselves to blame this deal should've been done weeks ago we have allowed barcelona into this deal when we had a clear run .

3.) 28 Jan 2020 19:59:58
Still so much negativity - for god sake cheer up - looks like we have a great signing.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 20:01:57
About time.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 20:09:29
What a waste of a month if we have just paid what Sporting were asking all along.

6.) 28 Jan 2020 20:14:41
Hard not to be negative tbh when we seem to be clowns in every facet of the club but you are right, a very good player if he signs, build the team around type of signing I'd dare say.

7.) 28 Jan 2020 20:34:40
We have got him for a good price and not what they wanted at all, good deal, thank god.

8.) 28 Jan 2020 21:10:52
No getting excited until. i know it's done and dusted its not negative it's just history of this club when it comes to transfers.
I will be ecstatic if it does go through this is just one of the pieces to get us back fighting.

9.) 28 Jan 2020 21:15:35
I thought the whole Barcelona rumour sounded ridiculous.

Barcelona spend 55m on a player (Bruno) so they can loan him to Valencia to sweeten a deal for a 50m rated striker (Rodrigo) .

Which gets even sillier when you consider Jorge Mendes has been brought in by Sporting to help move Bruno Fernandes. The same Jorge Mendes who has an excellent relationship with Peter Lim the owner of Valencia. So why would Valencia want Barcelona to buy one of their targets so they could loan him, just at a time when they receive a fee for one of their players in the same region cost wise as the player they would like to buy.

It's bonkers, and probably absolutely horse 💩. If Barcelona want to sweeten a deal for Rodrigo they could probably do it for significantly less than the 55m it would cost to sign Bruno.

10.) 28 Jan 2020 21:23:27
Well hopefully Bruno realises that Barcelona only want him, so they can loan him out to get the signing they really want which is a striker from Valencia I believe
Depends on what Bruno wants from his career, To be worshiped at MUFC or quite easily be a bench warmer at Barcelona, Hopefully he makes the right decision and is an absolute star for us . Just the pick me up us fans need right now. Feel more comfortable tho when he is pictured holding up our shirt.

11.) 28 Jan 2020 21:47:16
Good to finally get our man. But isn't the £70m basically what they were asking for from the beginning?

12.) 28 Jan 2020 23:22:46
It’s £46m + add ons so a pretty good deal, we won’t mind paying the add ons if he does well.

13.) 29 Jan 2020 01:47:12
Rock the red - his wife might fancy being a beach warmer in Barcelona though.

14.) 29 Jan 2020 09:07:04
The one saving grace of this whole farce is that it does seem that the deal which has finally been agreed is in fact a decent compromise between what we wanted and what they wanted, not just a panicked last minute capitulation.

The lower starting fee is what the club apparently wanted, but the add-ons mean Sporting should get the bigger fee they wanted eventually.

I'm probably just still drunk from last night, but I can't help wonder whether Ed maybe isn't quite as incompetent as we thought?



08 Oct 2019 13:55:01
Hi Ed002, I recall you saying doing transfer business in January is much more difficult and may cost clubs a lot more to get certain players.

With recent reports from the BBC that the club will try to invest in Jan, do you know of what our plans may be? Or do you think this is the club trying to keep the fans on side but in reality we won't do anything.

I would love it if the club pushed to get Bruno Fernandes and a good striker in, both would be big additions to this squad and may well save Ole's season.

Weird times at the club right now, whenever we think we've finally got out of this rut, something happens which reminds us the club is still poorly run and we're not changing anytime soon. Oh how I wish we could rewind 15 years.


{Ed002's Note - Club's don't like selling in January and it is disruptive for them. The club has no new ideas about players and they could look to Spurs to take Eric Der as a replacment for Matic. The couple of youngsters the club was really keen on will not be joining. They will look to a striker - and have looked at Moussa Dembele who may be available if the right offer is made whereas Bournemouth will not look to be selling Callum Wilson.}

1.) 08 Oct 2019 15:21:19
Ok thanks Ed.

Personally don't think Dier is a smart choice, we need more creative midfielders not another one dimensional defensive mid.

Dembele sounds like an interesting choice, he did well at Celtic from what I remember.

Glad Wilson isn't available, would cost way too much and he wouldn't offer much more than our current strikers do.

2.) 08 Oct 2019 18:13:51
Personally I feel we need two midfielders, one more defensive to act as a shield in from of the defence and one more creative.

In and ideal world Declan Rice and James Maddison would be great options. But neither will be available in January and depending on how we do neither might be options next summer either.

Players available in January are few and far between and you often need to take a gamble on a player who isn't playing for his current club.

Eric Dier has his limitations but he would be an improvement on Matic in the holding role. Although he doesn't have the ceiling of a player like Rice who is arguably a better all round player now but has a lot of room for growth.

As for creative midfielders we need to know what kind of system we want to play. Do we want to persist with a 4231 type formation and look for a player who can find pockets of space to play in more akin to a No.10 or do we want a creative player who is more comfortable playing slightly deeper in a free 8 sort of role in a 433/ 4141 type formation.

If your looking at a No.10 who might be attainable in January then someone like Dani Olmo could be a good option. Whereas, if you want a creative No.8 then maybe someone like Donny van Der Been might be a good option.

Unfortunately we won't know this unless the manager situation is resolved one way or another.

3.) 09 Oct 2019 06:14:18
Declan Rice is improving with every game.
Tenacious, ball winner and his ability on the ball is getting better and better.
But WestHam would ask for a ridiculous price.

4.) 09 Oct 2019 14:37:05
West Ham fan here. £80 million isn't a ridiculous price.

He is the best English holding midfielder already. Not that I want to sell him.

5.) 09 Oct 2019 17:17:48
You would have to part with the best part 100-150 million pounds for Madison and Rice. You always have to pay more for top English players and both of them are top players.

6.) 10 Oct 2019 22:49:44
Declan rice is no better than mctom and is really a cb. Very limited player on the ball and is sloppy in possession in bad areas, admittedly he is only learning how to play in midfield and is making big strides but i feel He will be playing cb in 4 years time because that's what he is imo. He will be a very good one too. If pep gets him he could well turn him into a midfielder or ball playing cb.
I like Madison a lot. Very direct great in right spaces and will excel at his next club.
Van der beek is another very good player but probably madrid bound.
Olmo is predominantly a winger left or right not a ten a think a bit lightweight for the epl just yet.
Dembele is a good goal scorer i think he is better with his back to goal than martial or rashford and a good finisher.
Dier again limited on the ball but is an upgrade on matic. He actually plays deeper than matic which offensively allows the 2 cbs to split a bit wider and allows the fbs push on. What sort of price? Is he mire dependable than fred? I think so. He could well be a decent foil for mctom too.
Dembele and dier may both be available. Both would improve our squad. Neither are world class but both would walk into our tem at the moment imo.
A couple of players not spectacular but solid steady eddie's.
They won't break the bank. i'd be delighted to be honest. Our other 3 signings along with mctom look like our best players this season. So there's no reason to think that another 2 wouldn't be a significant upgrade on whoever they replace in the team.
We need 5 or 6 more steady eddie's in the team and squad. Players who produce solid consistent injury free football. Then the moments produced by the likes of rash martial pogba can be capitalised on.

7.) 14 Oct 2019 12:17:32
Rice is a 'good' player and nothing more at the moment. Against Czech Republic he was owned and run ragged. Made to look less than average.

Jorge Mendes has come out and said the Fernandes deal currently isn't looking likely to happen this window at this current state.

We want to pay less than the asking price and neither side is looking to budge yet.

Raiola has also made some comments regarding Pogba, sounds like they're going to hopefully move in the summer. Will be interested how the club reacts after losing pogba, he is on paper our best asset.




02 Dec 2019 09:42:09
Hey Ed002, are you aware of any changes in Ole's position at United?

Results really aren't going his way, football is fairly dire and the fans are beginning to turn. Are the club still backing him or is he on his last life?


{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 02 Dec 2019 10:34:27
Ah sorry, didn't scroll down enough on the banter page. Cheers Ed.



23 Sep 2019 20:27:40
Currently 'stranded' in Mallorca due to this thomas cook situation.

Had some time to watch the game and I'm starting to wonder how the club thought letting Lukaku leave without a true replacement would work? Quite worrying that we put so much trust into some younger lads who clearly aren't there yet.

After watching Napoli this weekend I can't help but feel Llorente on a free could have been a good stop-gap as he was on a free.

Let's hope the lads go out there against Arsenal and prove they're good enough, but I'm not feeling confident. Hopefully our flight home gets delayed for a week or two 🤣.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 20:43:19
Let's hope they beat Rochdale first eh.



04 Aug 2019 19:54:47
Looks like Ed002 was on the money again. Dybala is not set on joining us so we've pulled out. Looks like our board are starting to be wiser when it comes to these type of players.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 20:11:09
Wiser they should have known that in the first place, with herrera gone surely thay have to bring 8n another, plus fellanni gone,
Fernandes and longstaff would be great,

2.) 04 Aug 2019 20:42:13
if we do not bring in any midfield players i see wolves and everton fighting for top six. we will be lower.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 20:54:43
If we play 4231, we currently have pogba fred matic andre and mctom for 2 positions.



02 Aug 2019 15:26:48
Maguire reported as a done deal by the Telegraph. Deal agreed this morning. 90 million! Games gone.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 15:35:49
I think it will be a very expensive mistake. Fingers Crossed!

2.) 02 Aug 2019 20:34:13
Look at it this way then if the money bothers you.

Lukaku maguire swap
85m for dybala

He also suggested the same for Bruno, Maguire, Wan-bissaka and James. He's a journo who is briefed by the club. Take whatever he says with a pinch of salt.

The club has briefed to Journalists today that progress is being made, can only mean one thing and that's were close to sealing the deal.

I will be ecstatic with this signing, we will finally have a high quality right winger at the club again!

I'd expect this one to go on until the end of Jan and we'll eventually pay up.

The club is under pressure and if we don't bring in a top quality player Ole will be thrown to the wolves. Signing Fernandes could potentially save our season if he hits the ground running.

Based on what we've seen I'm expecting Mandzukic and either Eric Dier or Kalvin Phillips.

I read it fully several times Ed002 and really appreciate the work that goes into providing this info.

I full respect your decision as you don't need to do this for us. The transfer window seems to bring the worst out of a lot of 'fans' and unfortunately the brunt of it is aimed at people like you or journalists providing info.

Hopefully this will push those idiots away from the site so the rest of us can enjoy discussing things again.

Let's be honest, Di Maria, Lukaku and Herrera were all good enough. Di Maria wanted out, Ole didn't want Lukaku and we messed Herrera about too much.

Sanchez was a complete failure.

I would not be surprised if this is just a tactic from the Club to build more traction on this transfer.

The club loves the social media numbers and a massive transfer like this will improve the stats.

It does feel like we've missed out on a gem in Halaand, would have been a great player to have in this squad.

I like the idea of Josh King but for the price being mentioned it seems crazy.
