Cavani and Telles have both signed. Expect a deal for Dembele to come through late in the day after Dortmund reject our €120m bid.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 11:08:32
Hope you’re wrong. What I want to know is why Sancho (who is apparently unwell) has been out of the Dortmund squad for over a week and is currently in the UK. What is going on. Is it really unrealistic to think our terrible PR team have kept this all under wraps and will in fact announce Sancho this afternoon?

2.) 05 Oct 2020 11:13:58
would be peak woodward to bid what dortmund wanted all window to then be told to do one.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 11:18:27
Find it funny how so many United fans seem to not want dembele and the majority of Barcelona fans don't want to lose him.

On his day one of the best players in the world and a fast attacking style like ours would be a better fit for him than Barcelona who's play doesn't require players to be quick

Ed's already said it's a possibility I hope we are trying to make this one happen.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 11:18:41
Sancho not happening, deal went dead a while back, probably even if we offer the full amount today. Sancho is at St George's Park at the moment getting a C.V. test. Dembele, Cavani and Tellas will be the only signings today.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 11:29:29
O. Dembele's camp have come out and said he won't leave Barcelona today. He wants to stay there and fight for his place.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 11:32:22
Dembele off according to multiple reports.

7.) 05 Oct 2020 11:34:04
Sancho broke quarantine earlier in the year to go to UK for a haircut apparently, left out of squad in last 3 games due to challenge and is at a party in UK. might not be the best role model if true.

8.) 05 Oct 2020 11:38:32
I suppose Dembele could keep Tuanzebe company throughout this season.

9.) 05 Oct 2020 12:08:25
Sancho is trying to push the move too, or at least he will if and when a bid goes it.
Points re: Dembele, on his day, yes he’s great but we can say the same about Pogba. We need consistency, no more gambles.



03 Oct 2020 09:11:41
Rumors going round that Leeds are considering a £25m bid for Dan James. I appreciate you don't want to go into specifics ED002, but is James a player that Leeds are interested in and if so, would they be looking to loan or buy? Furthermore, would United be open to selling?

If there's any truth to this I'd snap their hands off and put the money towards meeting Dortmund's asking price for Sancho.


{Ed002's Note - Leeds have added Jack Harrison as a LW and are looking to add a young RW in Kerk leaving them wanting a versatile left-sided player. They have two in mind in Cantwell and Sessegnon, but Sessegnon looks to be heading elsewhere. After failing to sign James last summer Leeds could look to him, perhaps on a loan deal initially, as an option to first choice LW.}

1.) 03 Oct 2020 12:18:59
He definitely needs a loan this season. Even if it’s to a championship club where he will play every week, but ideally to a lower level PL club. I feel sorry for the lad he’s having a tough time. Clearly has some talent but seems to be the type of player who needs a long run of games to develop. Might actually do him some good to be trained by a better coach as well.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 12:22:59
After a bright start things just haven’t worked out for him. Whilst I think that regular playing time would do him some good, I can’t ever see him developing into anything other than a squad player for us and even that might be beyond him. If selling him brings in the funds required to secure a deal for Sancho, I think the club would be foolish not to.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 14:01:00
I think sending to work with Bielsa would be an excellent idea. In fact sending our entire squad to work with him would not be a bad choice.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 20:35:59
😂 Maybe we can send our coaches.



28 Aug 2020 04:29:57
Hi Ed002. Any truth to the reports that we've made an approach for Sandro Tonali? Is he a player that the club have expressed an interest in signing in the past?

I haven't seen too much of him, but he looks like he has the potential to become one hell of a player if developed correctly.


{Ed002's Note - Tonali has no interest in moving to England - one club has tried vey hard to persuade him.}

1.) 28 Aug 2020 11:31:32
Ed002 has mentioned on numerous accounts that he wants to stay in Italy. Just another paper story or the board chasing another target that is never going to happen.

2.) 28 Aug 2020 17:02:12
Creaking little player all the same.
Inter have broad agreement in place according to reports and he does not want to leave Italy sadly.
A really top prospect imo.

3.) 28 Aug 2020 23:51:42
ken i thought he was a young player they only creek at our age.

4.) 29 Aug 2020 00:32:16
😂 oops.



10 Mar 2020 09:24:42
Some interesting comments from Timo Werner today regarding the prospect of joining a team that's already competing or being part of something new. He supposedly name-checks us when talking about the latter.

It's possible that he only mentioned us to drum up interest and improve any potential offers he might receive from Pool, Bayern or City, but if he really does see some value in being a part of a rebuild, it certainly gives the management something to think about.

He looks like a very good player and would certainly add to the team although I expect he's Liverpool bound:

Any interest from United, Ed002?


{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud - but they have other preferred options. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - for example, if by some chance MU were able to sign a particular Free Agent or Ighalo for the summer then interest in TW would go - equally if other clubs were not able to sign their targets, interest in TW might increase. Atletico signing Cavani would likely kill off their interest. There is clearly interest from Klopp, but would Timo Werner be interested in a move to sit on the bench at Liverpool most of the time? If the answer is yes, or if Firmino is leaving then it makes sense. Many of the fans expect Klopp to add all of these players without anyone leaving and then completely change tactics and rotate them - it makes zero sense and the club has to meet Home Grown quotas as well. PSG are concerned about being shunned by Icardi and have looked at TW but have not declared any interest. Mr Mourinho is keen for Spurs to take him but there are concerns about the cost. The interest of Dortmund has gone with the signing of Haarland - but could return in the summer if Real Madrid could prise Haaland away. Bayern Munich were never going to do business in January and played down all transfer talk but there is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski, who will be 32 at the start of next season, is going to need replacing in the next 18 months - and the plan had always been that it would be Timo Werner - they could yet look to do something or perhaps suggest he waits another year at RBL who have offered a new contract. Last summer there was an approach from PSG who wanted Werner as a Cavani replacement - in the end Cavani stayed and they took Icardi on loan. The player has always said he wants to play for Manchester United one day but a move last summer was not possible and then Werner said he wanted tp play for Bayern Munich over all others. Now after a potential illegal approach he clearly wants to join Liverpool - the riot act has been read to him over public statements by both his club and Red Bull who are seeing him become a bigger and bigger jerk - and this constant talking about other sides will remove the interest of clubs like Chelsea who see it as unacceptable as he becomes more and more of a jerk. There was a third party trying to negotiate for a BM move last summer but they were a long way apart on price and RBL looked to extend. As BM were expected to need Werner this coming summer, a release clause was agreed with his new contract that would make him available at a low fee so RBL would keep him another year and then he could move to Bayern Munich next summer.}

1.) 10 Mar 2020 10:36:13
Wow, amazing detail thank you!

2.) 10 Mar 2020 11:07:32
Thanks as always, Ed.

Dries Mertens and Ighalo being looked at suggests that the club sees Martial, Rashford and Greenwood as the club’s future strike force and so are only looking for a short term solution while Greenwood grows into his game.

Martial and Rashford’s stats this season have been pretty impressive and Greenwood definitely looks like he could become a very good player. I wouldn’t say no to Werner and think he’d do a better job than Ighalo or Mertens whilst offering a long term solution if it’s decided that Greenwood or Martial aren’t upto scratch in a few years time, but our midfield and RW seem like much higher priorities.

{Ed002's Note - There is also interest in Dembele. You can almost certainly scratch Mertens subject to the issues currently hitting Italy being resolved, although the clubs are assuming it will be with Inter in London yesterday and today working on transfers for a couple of players. If the problems go away Mertens will likely sign a new deal. Ighalo would likely be open to providing cover on a more permanent basis.}

3.) 10 Mar 2020 11:11:06
Ed002, if I might ask, is the free agent MU are looking at in the summer Cavani?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is Mertens.}

4.) 10 Mar 2020 11:52:45
Thank you for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



23 Aug 2019 10:17:25
A little confused by Ole's stance re Sanchez. Less than two weeks ago he was telling journalists that they would be surprised with how much he features this season and today he announces that the club are still actively trying to get rid of him. He needs to learn that sometimes it's best to say nothing.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation - it is about money and finding a taker. If that happens then he goes - but the club has to have the stomach to take a significant loss and his wages stay on the books. Ignore what OGS says.}

1.) 23 Aug 2019 20:54:49
Redseven ole is full of crap in his press conferences. All managers are.
You could pick holes in any of their statements as they often contradict themselves week after week. In fact they often do it in the same conference.
Ignore the lot of them. Its all BS lapped up by the gullible.

2.) 23 Aug 2019 20:04:47

I get the feeling that OGS is playing the role of good cop.

3.) 23 Aug 2019 21:46:24
Come on guys. Most of us think Sanchez need to leave including the manager and the club. Even if there is a player there, the fact Inter and Roma are in tells us what level he is at best. He’s passed it and it’s tine he left.

4.) 24 Aug 2019 11:22:16
Inter Milan are in the champions league. Not a bad level to be at.

5.) 24 Aug 2019 11:56:08
True that angel.

6.) 26 Aug 2019 15:37:26
It never ceases to amaze me how much faith and credence is put on what managers say to the media.

Another howler from Pickford. I wouldn't be a surprise to see Everton make a move for Romero over the next few days. He's a lot more reliable for sure!


1.) 03 Oct 2020 17:19:41
Pickford will still be number one for England aswell.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 17:41:14
If Henderson displaces DDG this season then I expect he'll be England No.1 by the time of the Euros.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 18:44:28
Pickford is just another Joe Hart for me. Excellent reflexes, but erratic and over confident. I haven't seen too much of Pope or Henderson but surely their clean-sheet stats warrant a proper look in at international level. I have no idea why Pickford is so well regarded by Southgate.



18 Sep 2020 06:10:56
I can't believe I'm asking this, but Suarez. Would you take him?

As a person, I'm not sure I could think much less of him, but as a player I still think he has a lot to offer.

He knows the league, he's a hell of a lot better than Ighalo (who Ole doesn't seem to rate at all), he could be available on a free transfer and perhaps best of all, it would wind the scousers up something rotten.

In the past we've done pretty well bringing older strikers in as they near the end of their careers (Larsson, Zlatan and Owen spring to mind) and it would fill a hole in our squad without blocking the long-term path of any of our developing strikers.


1.) 18 Sep 2020 06:33:31

2.) 18 Sep 2020 06:38:23
Never Ever Ever. No. Just No.
Ed001 who is a Liverpool supporter has said multiple times he wouldn't have him back and he nearly won the league for them.


3.) 18 Sep 2020 07:01:10
Nit after what he done to evra.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 07:05:25
Although some would say we lack bite, Suarez and Hannibal in the same team is a bit too much.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 07:22:27
Nope, his knees have gone. Barcelona want shot of him as he in on high wages is injured a lot and even when fit is a shadow of the player he used to be.

Plus I'd never take him for what he did to Evra.

9.) 18 Sep 2020 11:34:51
Why do we need to disrupt squad harmony by bringing someone who abused our club legend.

Moreover, he is approaching 34 doesn't make any sense in footballing terms.

Reports coming out that Pogba has C.V. Fingers crossed he's okay.


1.) 27 Aug 2020 14:28:31
Going to be a common occurrence next season, think Chelsea have 7 players tested positive. How clubs and the league manage it will be interesting as we move forward. Hopefully all concerned are ok and they recover fully and quickly 👍.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 15:11:01
As far as I know Tim Chelsea have NO positive cases of CV. They have players on quarantine.

I’m sure all clubs will have positive tested players over the next few weeks.

I wish PP all the best.

{Ed001's Note - yeah they have 9 in quarantine but no positive tests so far.}

3.) 27 Aug 2020 15:17:02
It certainly seems as though many are letting their guard down during pre-season - unless the FA were fudging the results post lockdown (which seems unlikely) .

It will certainly be interesting to see how it’s handled once the new season is up and running. The SFA has to postpone some Celtic and Aberdeen games last week for lockdown breaches, but were a player to become infected during the season it could effectively force the whole squad into self-isolation leading to a whole spate of games being called off.

4.) 27 Aug 2020 15:31:32
Hopefully they will be in the 99% mild category of C.V.

5.) 27 Aug 2020 15:33:04
This won't be an infrequent occurance for months to come. Every human in this country will catch it, or get a vaccine - and there's no sign of one of those.

6.) 27 Aug 2020 16:18:21
Apologies everyone I got that bit wrong, read the headline but not the full article due to time. Sorry 🙏.



16 Aug 2020 22:09:33
Our three semi-final defeats serve as a fitting metaphor for Ole's managerial abilities. Good enough to make it to the top four but unable to push on into the top two.

We deserved to lose tonight. Terrible defending for both goals and, for the second game in a row, some terrible finishing at the other end. More than anything though, we got another example of Ole's terrible game management.

After the first ten minutes of the second half we struggled to create anything of note and yet with players looking tired and the team needing a goal, Ole sat on his hands and did nothing. Sevilla went ahead and Ole waits ten minutes to make changes and even then doesn't bring on a striker, instead wasting more minutes on a player who hasn't made a meaningful contribution on the pitch in almost a year.

I like Ole. He's a club legend and at times has had us playing some very good football, but I just don't think he is good enough to take us to the next level. I wouldn't necessarily be against him staying for another season or two to continue rebuilding the squad, but I think we need a DoF in place ASAP if that's to be the plan.


1.) 16 Aug 2020 22:13:39
Who did you want him to bring on? Have the subs not proved that they aren’t good enough every time he has brought them on? That’s more of the issue than the manager for me.

Jury is still out for me, I liked how we played tonight, I thought he got it tactically right and on another day we could and should have been 4 up. Just one of them nights as the commentator kept saying, not sure Ole got a great deal wrong.

2.) 16 Aug 2020 22:22:03
Maguire and lindelof are poor. Both lack leadership skills. The decision by OGS etc to play the ball out from the back puts immense pressure on the defence who aren't capable of playing out from the back. 4-2-3-1 is a backwards formation. 4-3-3 is a better formation.

Up top, we really should have put the game to bed with the chances we had. Our lack of quality on the bench is very visible.

3.) 16 Aug 2020 22:22:33
The issue is that we have players who still after years in the team keep making errors at key times. How can we blame a manager for a centre half looking at his man twice and not getting himself in a position to defend.

4.) 16 Aug 2020 22:24:12
He should start changing players around the 60 mins mark.
Alex Ferguson always did it.

The excuse is oh my god the players on the bench have not been good enough.

Mata won us the last game, he was bright when he came on. We are up against a Spanish team, and he drifts into spaces. He should have been on at 60 mins as he can unlock teams.

Matic, he has been in the first XI all season. Suddenly Fred is ahead of him. Mad decision.

Dropping Romero made 0 sense. He's not had a single bad game, plus he's really good at the penalty shootouts

Rashford had a nightmare game today and against copenhagen, he should be off at 60 mins, you cannot keep carrying players based on their names. He was terrible.

Brandon is quite gritty defensively but not good going forward, Fosu Mensah in the last 5 mins had 3 crosses and one which james should get on the end on.

Why do we even have ighalo? If you're not going to give him any game time. He would on the shoulder of a defense where one CB is on a yellow. He's a much better striker than De Jong or Choupo Moting who both being bad strikers won 2 their teams games.

Sometimes the bench players win games, and apart from 5-10 min spell in the second half, I was not convinced we will score again.

Terrible management by Ole.

5.) 16 Aug 2020 22:31:53
Lingard has 2 in his last 3, Ogalo has a fairly decent return given the limited minutes he’s been given this season and Mata has been good in his last 2 games. It might not be the strongest bench in the world, but let’s not pretend it’s completely bereft of talent.

Furthermore, whose fault is it that our bench is so lackluster? Players like Lukaku and Sanchez were allowed to leave and the club spent around £200m on four players. If Ole really has so little faith in his squad, why has nothing been done to address this in his 3 windows in charge? I doubt Sevilla have spent much more than £200m on their entire squad.

I’m not disputing that Ole sets up well ahead of games and agree that on another night where our finishing was better we wouldn’t be having this conversation; but in football things don’t always go to plan and when they don’t, the manager needs to be able to react accordingly. Unfortunately, Ole has shown time and time again that he is unable to do this.



08 Aug 2020 13:38:05
Juventus have sacked Sarri. Let's hope they don't try to lure Solskjaer away!

If he’s smart he’ll sign a new deal with an agreed release clause and be gone in January. He’s 27 now and will be 29 by the time his contract’s up. He’ll get a nice signing on fee if he runs the contract down but will struggle to find anybody willing to give him a long contract - especially if his form hasn’t improved massively. Getting a big 5 year deal in January would make a lot more sense than wasting his best years at a club that he doesn’t want to be at and then getting a 2-3 year deal in 2 years time.

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.

Napoli set a price for Koulibaly when City came knocking. Cash plus Smalling could be enough to get the deal done.

Looks like the club have given up on Sancho. Will be interesting to see if they push for an alternative or divert funds towards a much needed CB. If we’re not getting the Sancho, I think I’d prefer the latter.

GDS2. The matches selected to be PPV will be the ones that decision makers think will bring in the most revenue. Given the size of our fan base I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see our games selected for PPV more often than others’.

Part of me wonders whether the PPV system might be better in the long run though. While I was still in the UK I was spending £50+ a month on television packages. I watched other stuff just because I was paying for it, but the main reason that I paid the money was for the 2 or 3 United games a month - and I’d occasionally have to miss one of those because of prior engagements or work. Had I been watching on PPV at £15 I’d likely have spent far less. If the price dropped to £7.50-£10 a match (which it may well do if the initial uptake is poor), I think it’d be a very viable alternative to traditional subscription models moving forwards. Whether Sky would let it happen is another story though.
