Telles has C.V.


1.) 29 Oct 2020 06:18:27
Ole has confirmed he has had no symptoms, so he will be back after a good rest and fitness.

2.) 29 Oct 2020 18:03:38
Ed could you shed light on Bartomeus comments about the super league? I know a little bit about it through work in that it’s United and Arsenal with Liverpool possibly being invited if they can increase their global appeal. But it seems like the negotiations have taken off in various directions recently?

{Ed002's Note - He was discussing the proposals of the "elite" sides which I have been explaining for several years. The other idea are simply options, which I have explained as well.}

3.) 02 Nov 2020 07:47:36
We need a manager with a C. V.

4.) 05 Nov 2020 13:26:54
ken only just seen this, it made me chuckle lol.



05 Oct 2020 13:58:35
i just don't get united at all.

its a comedy show in the market,

we knew what dortmund wanted yet offer around 16 million short of what they want.

yet agree 20 million euros for telles, don't sell smalling for a fee that could be used to add to the bid we have already sent to dortmund for sancho.

then apprently are in for this 18 year old kid for 30 million euroes but don't have the money for sancho

the bid was obviously just for fun, never any intention to buy the player just a smoke screen for the good old "we tried"

and again made it out to every club that we don't have a clue on how to conduct transfers

i don't get how we can end the season on a positive feeling to now this,

and now we have a few weeks before we play again., .,

and our next 5 games don't look promising with our current form.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 14:45:12
The Traore money was going to be used for Sancho. With that deal dead the money is being spent on other acquisitions.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 14:54:37
I don't get comparing Sancho and Traore. We are chasing them for different reasons.

Unfortunately Sly are sensationalising the Traore signing so everyone thinks this is the Sancho alternative. He's just a kid.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 14:55:35
Pretty sure the potential for a Sancho deal is the reason why so much of our business is being done late on and why we were pushing for the extra few million for Smalling.

That we’re starting to splash the cash around now would certainly seem to suggest that a deal for Sancho is well and truly off the table now.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 15:00:15
What other acquisitions?

Telles was independent of Sancho and Cavani is a free agent.

United allegedly bid £90m for Sancho, and are now signing a kid for less than a third of that. There’s £60m plus that isn’t being spent, despite it being blindingly obvious that our squad is unfit for purpose. The kid won’t even be here till Jan, and even then he will take years to be a starter.

There was no plan this window, and suspect Ole will be gone before the new year.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 15:05:55
I think the reality is that the club genuinely thought they could get the Sancho fee down.

Over the last 48 hours when it has proven that they can't and that they have no desire to spend £108m on Jadon in the current climate.

Now the club are facing a backlash and have cobbled together deals for Cavani and Amad Traore to cover their arses. I don't think the club ever had any plans to sign either this window.

I think the club expected a deal for a CAM (Grealish originally, but when Villa wouldn't drop the 80m fee they went for DvdB), a LB looked at Reguilon, Alex Telles and Mykolenko (With Telles actually signing), a move for a young talented wide player such as Stevanovic or Pellistri (a player for the future who might make a few first team appearances this season) and a move for Sancho who they thought they could get the price down for.

When the Sancho deal went up in smoke they quickly spent 60m on Cavani and Amad Traore (who can't join until January) . I don't think the club planned to buy either this summer. Cavani has been available for months, while Amad Traore was going to Parma on loan before that collapsed and we swept in. Clearly two deals that were not a part of our thinking until the last few days.

Our transfer window has been shocking, we will somehow now end up with three highly talented 18 years olds are our only options for the RW unless we play Mata or Lingard there, or continue with a struggling Dan James who we were considering selling/ loaning to Leeds when we thought we could get Sancho.

Utter shambles.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 15:59:09
The planning and execution is shocking.

Cavani has not played football for almost 7 months.
His agent said few months back that he would join United only for money.

Why are we again after mercenaries again.

7.) 05 Oct 2020 16:15:04
Did you see him say that trd or was it a quote an a click bait article from the metro?

8.) 05 Oct 2020 16:36:37
Quote from February Ken, his agent/ brother said this. "If it were for money, Edi would have gone to England, Manchester or Chelsea. ”.

9.) 05 Oct 2020 17:03:38
This is part of the article in 4-4-2

Cavani’s brother, Walter Guglielmone, who also acts as his agent, revealed that despite interest from Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the striker had his heart set on a move to Atletico Madrid instead.

“Cavani was willing to receive less than with PSG, ” revealed Guglielmone. “Atletico could not cover the total economic cost of the operation and PSG did not want to lower the amounts he was asking for. Atletico Madrid did not close the agreement.

"Do you think that Edi did not play for almost a month at PSG so that I could drop the operation for a commission and that Edi did not fulfill his dream of going to Atletico Madrid? If it were for money, Edi would have gone to England, Manchester or Chelsea. ”.

10.) 05 Oct 2020 17:59:24
So he didn't say "he would join United only for money"

That's some twisting of words.

Plus the article is from February. A lot has happened since then.

11.) 05 Oct 2020 18:02:36
Yup Ken. His agent did say that and he also said his dream move is Athletico.

Desperation signing : (.

12.) 05 Oct 2020 18:02:36
Yup Ken. His agent did say that and he also said his dream move is Athletico.

13.) 05 Oct 2020 20:05:05
So was United desperate or Cavani then, TRD?



10 Aug 2020 18:59:58
Anyone know who Daniel Harris is?

He seems to think sancho will hand a transfer request in.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 19:06:22
Can’t remember who he writes for, a few places I think and apparently he is reliable though others might need to confirm that.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 20:19:42
In short Tim you don't know🤣🤣.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 23:01:55
Have you been writing Boris’ press releases Tim?

4.) 10 Aug 2020 23:04:33
😂 pretty much. but he writes for the guardian so that’s better than the star or sun.

5.) 11 Aug 2020 11:56:29
Only teasing Tim😂.

6.) 11 Aug 2020 12:49:08
No worries ken. I’m thinking of running for office 😉😂.

7.) 11 Aug 2020 15:33:16
It was a politicians answer alright😂😂 either that or Vikki pollard groom little Britain no but yeah but no but yeah but.

8.) 11 Aug 2020 16:58:42
Far too concise for a Boris press release.

9.) 11 Aug 2020 20:17:04
I’m Dominic Cummings without the lockdown breaking antics 😂.

Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will be staying at Borusia Dortmund next season, according to the Bundesliga club's sporting director Michael Zorc.

"We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions, " Zorc just told a press conference.

will Woodward buckle.

the only thing that annoys me during the windows is the length of time we spend chasing one player i get its a long process but just tell them a price were willing to pay if not move on.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 16:27:37
So Bolger you wanted to take him in no time? Only way to do this is to pay what they want at first play. So as Ed002 said 120 to Dortmund, 50 at manager plus the Fa etc. The discussions started the time Premier League finished, is it a lot of time for such a huge deal? I woyld say the opposite.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 16:43:10
I read a book on transfers by Daniel Geey, if you want to get past all the stuff written on-line and in the media, its an eye opener. Other books on transfers are available, I think.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 17:01:14
Did they not suggest it’s become a poker game? . This is just a first move. Nearly two months left of the window so this is probably just a tactic to force uniteds hand.



30 Jul 2020 18:03:55
So the rumour doing the rounds is jiminez to us apparently agreed according to reports in Portugal.


1.) 30 Jul 2020 18:30:23
I tried posting that a while ago asking if Ed’s had any observations. At 29 he’s beyond the OGS profile surely?

2.) 30 Jul 2020 19:20:37
I’m sure he will love sitting on the bench each week.

3.) 30 Jul 2020 22:04:16
I’d take Calvert-Lewin instead.

4.) 30 Jul 2020 22:23:14
Calvert Lewin Eric really?

Not really seen much of him.

28 Oct 2020 22:19:36
Its clear to see that the 4 2 3 1/ 4 3 3 is not the formation we should be playing

The 3 5 2 or 5 3 2 and the 4 1 2 1 2 diamomnd we played tonight is much better for the players we have.

We don't have natural wingers i'm hoping we change to either 2 formations above

Another good performace and win.

But which united will we get weekend.

We need to belive in ourselfs and get a run going now.




05 Oct 2020 20:08:13
Why do we expect any different. Its been like this for the past 8 years

It started when we failed to get fabregas and ended up with fellani.

Untill the club stop making money the glazers don't care.

We have spent virtually nothing we saved how much on sanchez wages.

Sancho was our number 1 target, we wait till 2 days before the window closes to get a free agent.

Untill woodward, judge and co fail in bringing in the money nothing will change

ole will be gone by the next window and the dream of a new era will be sold to us when the next manager comes in.

The ambition of honours died when fergie and gill left.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 20:35:38
Sadly I think you are right here. When former players, are no longer biting their tongues and saying it as it is and still nothing changes. Why do we think it will change if us as fans vent on social media etc. Its irrelevant what we think really. Glazers are so disconnected and if you saw Evras post the other night he had to tell the Glazers some home truths as they had no idea! So either they are being fed untruths by Woodward etc. Or they really are only bothered by £££.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 20:46:57
The ambition and incompetence of our Club has been laid bare in another embarrassing illustration of utter contempt, arrogance and ineptitude.

The Club have somehow contrived to steal away all optimism from a season where we will welcome Europe's elite back to Old Trafford. Any momentum that may have been built has been completely evaporated in the last three months of embarrassing, shambolic, public negotiations which has seen us one again scurrying around Europe on deadline day desperately trying to sign anyone that may have us.

Our next 7 fixtures are Newcastle, PSG, Chelsea, Leipzig, Arsenal, Basaksehir, Everton and they don't get much easier after that.

Ole has many doubters but to see a Utd legend so publicly exposed and demoralised by a Club he obviously loves is as sad as it is despicable.

I think every single one of us knows how this now ends. Ole's reputation and legacy is destined to be forever tainted over the next few months as the complete shambles of this window manifests itself on the pitch.

Why would anyone want this job when the Club is run by investment bankers playing Championship Manger with one of the biggest and most famous Clubs in the world.

{Ed025's Note - that was hard hitting DLIB, but its hard to argue with any of that mate..

3.) 05 Oct 2020 20:58:16
I think that's the whole reason that they bought Ole in to do the job. He is revered as a legend in the fans eyes, we as fans turned on Moyes, LVG and Jose. They know we won't ever turn on Ole. Woodward is arrogant enough to be bulletproof and the Glazers are ghosts. So where do the fans get to show their frustrations? Who do we vent at? It only leaves the players and due to the C.V. we can't even do that. So its all social media which i doubt any of the “investment bankers” take any notice of.
Heads well and truly buried in the sand!

4.) 05 Oct 2020 21:01:59
Eloquently put. An honest and damming assessment.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 21:35:37
Tom Brady doesn't come cheap, folks.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 22:33:59
Was just thinking. With C.V. really affecting Utd more than most financially with lost attendance revenue surely the club needs on the field success to get tv revenue and prize money and advertising revenue.

Now whatever you may think about Woodward he surely knows this and that the owners want their dividends regardless of C.V.. So he and the owners must know that signing top players to compete with our rivals is essential to their ongoing ability to get those dividends.

It is also interesting that no other club has come close to spending £100m on a player. Whether we like it or not there has to be a point at which even Utd say "too much" we won't overpay. I am actually happy taht we have not paid an outrageous amount in these very difficult times.

When people fear for their jobs and have to survive on greatly reduced incomes our clubs should realise this and act accordingly. I would rather Utd gave £25m to charity to help ordinary disadvantaged people than use that money to get to the amount Dortmund want.



04 Oct 2020 19:07:37
If anyone hasn't seen pats interview. after the game go give it a watch, passion like this died when fergie left.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 19:15:56
Yeah did see and spot on, the man cares.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 19:23:18
He looked devastated. One of the worst performances I've ever seen from any side at the top level never mind United. Can't see anything but Ole going in the near future based on the start of this season.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 19:33:19
The club will just sack and appoint another manager. Perhaps the club needs to fail miserably to realise how far they have fallen.

4.) 04 Oct 2020 19:40:16
Isn't this part of the issue at United: looking back with rose tinted glasses as opposed to looking forward with binoculars. It's why we're lumbered with Solksjaer and Phelan.

A really brutal reality check for the club today which has been coming to be honest. Genuinely worried for the club. Every team will now know we're weak and there for the taking and will look to not only win but to hand out a shellacking as well.

Don't see many players up for the battles ahead, as what was on offer today was a complete capitulation.

Really feel for Solksjaer, he has brought so much joy to the club and is an important part of United's history but unfortunately not of the future.



30 Sep 2020 11:03:36
Maitland nials apprently 22 million nearrly done deal.

Didnt see this happening if true and yet were 15 million short of dortmunds asking price for sancho.

Cant see this one being true surley.


1.) 30 Sep 2020 12:07:37
Say what . And don't call me surley 😷😷.

2.) 30 Sep 2020 12:46:09
What about Jovic on loan from Madrid surely he’s a bit more mobile than Igahlo.



28 Sep 2020 18:24:40
Alot said about not prepared to pay the 108 million dortmund want as CV.

Why haven't we tried a similar deal to what psg did with mbappe and monaco

A loan with the obligation to buy next year for a certain amount.


1.) 28 Sep 2020 18:53:21
Maybe Dortmund want the cash now to use them on a new winger?

2.) 28 Sep 2020 19:29:14
It makes no sense to spend that money in the current climate.

The amateurs should have moved on to new targets in July, when Dortmund set their price.

3.) 28 Sep 2020 19:38:13
Feels more like a pr stunt at this point. by Friday it will be ’we tried our very best and didn’t give up, we didn’t want to be bullied and couldn’t spend that money in the current climate. Due to our prolonged efforts we don’t have time to complete other deals’

C.V. or not the way we conduct our business is amateurish and very frustrating for such a big club.

4.) 28 Sep 2020 23:27:16

So you think this whole thing has been good PR do you?

5.) 29 Sep 2020 10:16:54
For me the ‘current climate’ is utterly irrelevant. A young unproven boy, as good a prospect as he might be, is not worth that money unless RW is the only position we need to fill. It isn’t and we need help elsewhere much more urgently. Just my humble opinion of course.

6.) 29 Sep 2020 10:39:26
The way the club view things then it’s better than no PR. If the club says it’s trying to do deals then it keeps the brand in the spotlight, social media clicks, interactions are high as fans look for news. If the club said no we are done this window then none of that occurs. for a club that prides itself currently on clicks and social media views and brags about being the number 1 trend etc which one do u think they would prefer?! In the end if they don’t sign anyone they can still blame the current climate and a lot of people will believe them.

7.) 29 Sep 2020 10:42:19
Also may I just add i'm not saying splash large sums on sancho etc just address our glaring weaknesses. If they sign a lb and rw then fair enough, there are plenty of options that wouldn’t break the bank.

Its all balony. Why woukd we wait till smalling was going to try get a cb when we knew all window he wanted to leave?

The club don't have a plan hence the cavani purxhase and low balling for sancho fully knowing what they wanted

Pathetic, sick of the excuses now. No ambition to get back to the top.

agree with that ken pogba and martial need to be moved on.

pogba for obvious reasons,

martial is just lazy, doesn't make runs into the box and doesn't look arsed most of the time

cavani has done more than him when he has come on.

martial is not going to get any better.

bilko, awb is the best defender is the league as a full back there is no one better, i agree he lacks any threat going forward, but if we had a right winger in front i think he would improve that side of his game.

agree with the rest.

he has no choice to keep pogba as the ed said the CLUB not the manager has priced him out of a move and no one wants him for the price we want.

who wouldn't want to keep de gea? he's hit a rough patch but he is still a very good goal keeper and henderson was always going to come back and try fight for the number 1 spot after having 2 good seasons with SU, as decent as romero is he isn't going to budge Dave out the way.

but again the club once again not the manager failed to sell the player.

wan bissak has been a hit, maguire other than this season where he's been a bit dodgy has still been an improvement on jones, smalling and rojo who again the club failed to sell. just about sold smalling on deadline day.

the left back was needed and he is an upgrade on shaw, but with him having CV he cannot play yet.

bruno was bought 5 months to late again the CLUBS fault not the managers.

the same manager wanted halland instead was told its ighalo or no one, then was given a panic buy who hadnt played football for over 6 months, who is miles away for being fit and ready.

james was brought in to be bedded in not to be over played, and the kid needs a break he lost his dad, at any age that would take its toll, weather or not he is good enough give him some slack.

he wanted grealish and sancho and was given VDB and a free agent, after months of playing fools again in the window.

he hasn't been backed at all to improve on what we did last season, once we hit the money spots the club stop giving a crap on what happens on the pitch.

you bang on about if it wasnt for CV, YOU seem to forget we were the form team before C.V. our momentum was halted because of C.V., yet you use C.V. as an excuse to why we got 3rd.

we wouldn't have needed to play so many games when we returned and might have won somthing last season if it wasn't for C.V.

i agree with you ken ole doesn't get things right, makes stupid subs and starts the wrong team but he asked for players in the summer to improve on where we finished and he got a left back out of the players he wanted.

no doubt poch be an improvement but we still won't win anything imo with how the club is being ran. ole is being made to be the scape goat which is a shame.
