Hello ed2

Sorry to borher you but seen a report on the internet so thought to ask you on these players.

Firstly, is Romero likely to leave? If yes which sidees are interested? Read Boca juniors are interested.

Secondly Is Manolas likely to leave and are we really interested? On the article I read it said we and Arsenal are seriously intersted.



{Ed002's Note - Sergio Romero might look to leave in the summer but it may depend on what happens with De Gea. Boca wanted a loan but he had no interest in that - if he moves he will look to move back to Italy.

Yes Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Manolas but it is Inter who will push very hard for a deal in the summer.}

Ed2 are we looking at any keepers then as there seems to be a chance of one of pur keepers to be leaving or is J. Pereira likely to be considered as good enough prosprect ( I know we still have Johnstone but will he make it here) .

Also ed on the sharkopod you said Rojo is still considered as not dependable and it will be tough for Jones to make it past the summer window as a Utd player. So, has the opinion on them changed with their recent form or still the same? Also who is our primary cb target now as Gimenez is unlikely (or impossible)?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Manchester United will be trrying to understand where they are with goalkeepers going forward. They will look to hold on to De Gea but Romero will want to move for game time. (b) Manchester United will look for a different first choice centre back in the summer so Rojo and Jones will slide down the list and possibly out. (c) Lindelof remains very much the wanted player.}

Thanks ed.

Hi eds
Recently when i asked on the madrid site about the players they are interested in bringing, ed2 replied that De Gea is of interest to them so, man utd must be aware of that and thus surely we are looking at keepers to replace ddg if he decides to leave so, ed2 do you know of any keepers we are actively looking at or was Romero brought in to replace ddg.


{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that.}

For the folks wondering about the "clauses (excluding Santa), this is it as per the legendary ed2

Ed002's Note - Perhaps a reminder about transfer related clauses would be apt. This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws. They cause a great deal of misunderstanding with football supporters and the media alike.

The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax) .

There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a release clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties (clubs) are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that football Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales) for legal purposes.

These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club in the same country does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. For interested clubs outside of the country, the selling club may use it as a guide but are under obligation to accept a bid and may demand a higher figure.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another and about the legal proximity of the buying side.

We have had an upturn in fortune and allround a feel good factor is there surrounding us although the tougher tests are yet to come.
All the players have performed better than they had before Ole took over. But for me the biggest takeaway from these past 3 games is it has brought our old friend Chris (CTR) back to this page. One of the more frequent poster when I first started visiting the site but less and less posts with time. Good to have you back Chris.

Hello everyone, so it's derby day today. Hope we can show that man utd still has life in them and are a credible threat to all.

I am in a dilemma myself. Should I join the live chat here or not. That last few games I joined, we won them all so, I was thinking of joining but then on Wednesday I didn't join (was too late in the night so fell asleep) and we went on to win the game. so now I can't decide whether I should continue to join the chat or not on match days.

Help guys.


{Ed025's Note - i have this strange feeling that united winning has very little to do with you going on live chat deependra, but you are very welcome to participate mate, i dont hold out much hope for utd today although i said the same about the juve game..

1.) 11 Nov 2018 16:14:26
how does one join the live chat? There used to be a hyperlink top of the page but i’ve not seen it ages, assumed the chat had stopped until i seen this post.

{Ed033's Note - Try opening your eyes and look for where it says, "The real time Manchester United Live Chat page will be open...".

Superstitions ed25 superstitions
Even I don't it doesn't matter but superstitions. I have already quit watching us live.

No 'Review of the day today ed1?


{Ed001's Note - no sorry mate, I couldn't scrape enough news together for it and never noticed the time early enough to pad it out with some anecdotes or something before the autolink would generate. I have set a daily alarm now to give me a warning in time to put in some filler so it shouldn't happen again.}

1.) 17 Oct 2018 16:12:39
No problem ed.

{Ed001's Note - it should be back as normal tomorrow.}



13 Mar 2018 23:58:47
Before commenting on the result I will admit I didn't watch the match. The stream wasnt loading and I fell asleep.

But this is un-f###ing-acceptable, going by the highlights it looks like we didn't play to win, it looked like we were ok if the 90 minutes ended with 0-0. We didn't show any real attacking intent. We were playing a Sevilla team that had, on paper, less quality than us but they showed more desire to get thoroug.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 01:50:33
Deeps on paper they spent less money but have better quality.

What is your take on Courtois ed1? I personally think he is/ was massively overrated. He hasn't lived up to the promise he showed 6_7yrs ago. He seems to regress with every game he plays.


{Ed001's Note - I agree with you. He never improved if anything he regressed recently.}

Didn't know that much about Roma's current state. A major upheaval might be coming their way it seems. The transfer of Nianggolan did catch me off guard. I thought he was very happy at Roma and didn't want to leave Rome even after his playing days.

And as a reply to Huggy, calm down it is just a report by some media outlets, a rumour. Also not getting your first choice isn't always a terrible outcome. Sometimes you just won't be able to get your first choice or 2nd choice due to various reason maybe price, maybe other options for player, maybe an unfortunate injury etc, . What does matter in my view is when you are buying a player you aren't just buying for the sake of it, the player has to be fitting with the requirements.

A prime example of a 3rd choice option performing really well is last year's Pl player of the year Mo Salah. He wasn't the first or 2nd choice option (I think) when Liverpool signed him, Brandt was first choice if I recall correctly and Klopp had to be persuaded to sign Salah. So not getting the 1st choice doesn't always result in disaster maybe it also might work. Bug I too hope that if we are after Manolas it isn't just because he is cheaper than other options and is seen to be a significant upgrade and at the desired level.


{Ed002's Note - aroma are working hard on transfers and ha spoken to a number of sides and will be hip to the attendees in Geneva on 15/16.}

He is one those players that I will instantly like if he joins because that entertainment factor ed1. But might cause a few people to lose their head. But for sure he will be a significant upgrade on Jones and Rojo because at he will be fit for large parts. Saying all that ed, is he not seen to be very well settled at Roma and not that eager to move on?



{Ed001's Note - so was Nainggolan. Roma are a bit of a mess to be honest, the fans hate the moron that owns them, Palotta. They have a great social media dept run by a great guy, but the rest of the club is shambolic and the fans are protesting against it. So it might well be that any player will think this is a good time to move on now before it gets worse.}

Agreed ed1, from what I had seen of him he was a solid player when his head was on but just as likely to get sent off as he is to putting a MOTM performance. But if Lindelof is going to be first choice than a more physical partner maybe the way to go. But saying that if he is still as immature than who knows.

But he does remind a bit of Pepe or Ramos (but not a c##t like Ramos I think)


{Ed001's Note - at least he would be entertaining to watch as you never know what you will get.}

No pressure ed1. Do you much about him, how he has been getting on? I wasn't specifically asking for a profile as understand you already have tons of things to do on hand.


{Ed001's Note - he is one of those players who is very hit and miss. Because he is physical and can be rash, he is fantastic one game and terrible the next, from what I have seen. Might well be suited to English football though.}

Cool down buddy. Things don't move along on an hourly or daily basis. I am pretty sure you will find updates dated within this month so you will be fairly up to date. Transfers generally are long process not an overnight thing. We, along with several other clubs, have looked at the players you've listed but their clubs want large sums of money to sell them so if they were to move it would take a bit of negotiating on the behalf of buying club. Or massively overpay.

Transfers don't move along in the way media's make them seem to be with "red alert" and sh#t like that.

Exactly Ed1. You can't force players into signing new deals just because you have lots of money. Maybe they want a new challenge, fresh scenario. Also as stated by Rabiot's mom he is wanting to honor his current deal, not like Adrien is refusing to play he just doesn't want to stay at PDF for much long. I think PSG are being very unprofessional and trying to bully hi. They can deal with such situation a lot better. Just look at how Arsenal are handling the Ramsey situation. Maybe if PDF acted better then maybe they could persuade him to sign on but now it's looking very terrible on them.


{Ed001's Note - I am shocked at how they are handling it.}

Even bigger question for me is Why has Chelsea's ban not been suspended until after their appeal is finalised like in the case of the Spanish teams previously?

Just yesterday I was thinking about asking you for profile about him ed1. Turns out already done. I quite liked him from what little I had seen of him before but it seems he is a bit injury prone so never know how it may turn out for whomever he signs for. I myself think PSG might be a good option for both player and team.


{Ed001's Note - PSG do need a defender and they are desperate for French players, so it could be a good match.}

Great read as usual ed1.

On a different note what is your take on the handball decision ed1. Most of the people say it wasnt really a handball but I have seen those been give more times than not. I think it was handball and Rashford took the penalty quite brilliantly considering the circumstances.


{Ed001's Note - the issue is that VAR is supposed to be for 'clear and obvious' mistakes only. If the ref gives it without VAR, no issue, just one of those things. When VAR gets involved it should be definite or forgotten. Not that I am complaining as PSG I detest and all they stand for.}
