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

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.

29 Apr 2021 14:24:48
so is this going to be 5th time lucky.

have we learnt from our previous mistakes

will we be clinical and will we play a fast tempo game.

i think we have enough quality to win the tie in this leg but you never know what united will turn up.

ole needs this more than anyone and getting to the final and winning it could be the catalyst needed for both the manager and players, some of which have not tasted a trophy yet.

fingers crossed for tonight.


1.) 29 Apr 2021 14:40:36
I think these are a lot worse a team than we faced in semi last year. We have enough good players to win this one.
Did you not say you had no interest in this comp bolger? Shappy and a few others said they had no interest in it.

2.) 29 Apr 2021 14:43:25
I'm not sure which way this will go. I think a lot is made of our Semi-final losses, which is a measure of the expectancy to win this club has.

Klopp for example has has never made it beyond the 5th round of the FA cup and has been knocked out of the EFL cup 4 out of 6 times before the semi-final stage. Yet little was said about it even before he won the league and the UCL.

Ole has two semi-final losses to Pep's City in the league cup, one was a shade unlucky. The way the Europa league finished last season the players looked burned out and we lost to the team that has won the competition more times than anyone else (Sevilla), again it was a shade unlucky.

The loss against Chelsea in the FA cup was a poor show and we just didn't turn up.

3.) 29 Apr 2021 14:57:43
Ken, if the UCL final is between City and Chelsea how much would you celebrate winning the Europa league?

Would you rather win the UCL or the EL?

The FA cup or League cup?

The EPL or the Championship?

I'll be happy if we win it, but its not a tournament any top side starts the season hoping they win.

I said that I'd prefer us to focus on winning the league (at the time we were very close to City) and that a league title would be better than a EL win. As the season wore on and City charged past us and opened up an unassailable lead then we might as well focus on other competitions, especially with top 4 more or less sewn up.

{Ed077's Note - we did start the season in the CL. I will leave it at that.

4.) 29 Apr 2021 15:02:37
We're favourites for sure and I think there's good reason for that. Roma aren't great. We've played City, Chelsea and Sevilla in previous semi finals who are all considerably better than Roma.

We should win this relatively comfortably in my opinion. Emphasis on should.

5.) 29 Apr 2021 15:32:39
i am pretty sure i didn't say i had no interest in this comp ken.

i do agree it is lesser than the UCL but it has been given more importance since they added the winner to the UCL

as ed states above we did start the season in the UCL

tatical errors and team choices in the later games cost us going through imo, but we are not ready for the later stages of the UCL yet

we should win this and like i said winning your first cup can be the catalyst look at us after winning the fa cup in 1990.

6.) 29 Apr 2021 15:37:13
to add ken this compared to the ucl is like the league cup is to the fa cup but i would take any trophy to start with and i'm sure ole would as well.

7.) 29 Apr 2021 17:58:17
When we played City in the league Cup we sat back and played defensive football. We showed no desire to go out an win.

8.) 29 Apr 2021 18:26:14
I only we go for it and play as well as we know we can when we are on song.

What I can't stand is the build up "the lads are up for it " " there s a buzz in training, we all want these big games " etc etc etc. then we go out and can't string 3 passes together.

We need a trophy!

9.) 29 Apr 2021 15:52:11
Shappy I will celebrate winning the el as its the only comp we can win this season.
I won't celebrate being 2nd but know the consolation of getting a cl place is some comfort.
I hope Chelsea win the CL. City winning it won't bother me one bit either. I don't tend to look into my neighbours garden too often with jealousy. I would rather if city didn't win it but so what if they do. They will deserve it.
You know my views shappy.
We enter 4 comps every year. In order of priority for me they are epl cl/ el fa league Cup. I'd rather win any of those in a season than win nothing and finish top 4. I am aware that not everybody subscribes to that view. But for me its about winning titles more often than not that means we will be playing good attractive football and being entertained. (Not always the case but mostly) then top 4 will look after itself.
You wanted us out of those comps to focus on the league and securing top 4 that's a mentality I don't understand but up until fergie retired you have only seen success as a united fan. Your generation know no different and have different attitudes.
Of course I'd rather win the cl to the el but we are not in the cl anymore so its irrelevant to me as a united fan this season. El is our level this season so we should be aiming to win it from the moment we enter it.

10.) 29 Apr 2021 15:57:05
My bad bolger a lot of folk feel that way it's not a criticism.
I'm old school I'm afraid. Titles before top 4 for me all day.
Winning breeds winning as you say bolger I'm sure ole would give his left nut to win this which is why his stupid quotes irk me. This is Manchester United we want to win everything and should be busting a gut to do so. We should have no fear in saying so and make no apology for it.



20 Apr 2021 21:07:13

20 Apr 2021 20:43:23
What percentage of the club do the glazers own in total.


{Ed002's Note - Most of it.}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 21:09:30
Bolger I think it’s 98% could be wrong.



19 Apr 2021 10:50:03
ed002 if i can ask and you don't mind sharing,

what is your opinion on this super league and what do you think it means for English football



{Ed002's Note - Right now it is another option that has been put forward after the fauled MUFC/LFC proposal last year and a follow up on the threat issued by the Liverpool owners. Something was always going to happen but this has a long way to run.}



18 Mar 2021 13:22:58
So massive game tonight has ole learnt from previous games or is he going try and bore the milan players into throwing away their advantage

Will donny van der bench get a game? Will dick and dom be prime rio and vidic?

We surley have to set up with the intent to attack, start fast, forget playing 2 in front of the back 4.

Cant be doing with another bore fest of a game.


1.) 18 Mar 2021 13:37:08
I will be amazed if mctom and Fred don't start .
Who else is going to play donny and pogba just back from Injury.
Knock out footy we definitely don't want to conceded imo.

2.) 18 Mar 2021 16:38:23
I'm not going to pay to watch this one on bt sport or whatever ppv channel has it.

That's typically a good sign for you lot, as whenever I watch a game it's as exciting as watching an old dog squeeze out a turd. The games I miss are frequently more entertaining.

salford consistent? he's had 1 good season in the 8 years he's been in the prem. if anything he has been consistently poor

if we want to get back to the heights of winning things these below par players need to be avoided.

can you really see ings going to city as an aguero replacement, me thinks they are trying to trigger some sky betting odds.

martial has been poor because that is the player he is. no time for players who don't want to work hard,

he is lazy, doesn't make run doesn't stretch players, and other than the ok game against city he has been terrible.

the game was already won he rotated and changed it about

we went threw

anything to slag the guy off.

he made changes at halt time which effected the game, the full backs were shocking in the 2nd half

if professional players can't defend that is on them not the manager.

we need someone like a kane or lewandowski type cf.
