6 days to go!

On the 16th of June our Facebook page will go live to a charity match the site has organised, in aid of Seva and Macmillan nurses.
It will be a 3pm kick off!
Please share and like our page to support the boys taking part. We have one crowdfunded page on justgiving that raised Ā£300 before prematurely ending so stay tuned for a new one setting up. We are hopeful to raise Ā£1000 with this and the players match fees.

This is also the last call for anyone else who wants to play in the game held in north oxfordshire. Current players range from all abilities and ages! So do not feel you cannot contribute.

Text me on 07719565417 for more info!

Will ed001's "Just like watching brazil" better ed002's "Walham green east wapping, carpet cleaning rodent and boggit exterminating association"....FC?

Who is your money on?!

Hey guys, ken and myself are both playing in this match mostly with guys from the Liverpool page. Some support would be greatly appreciated, if anyone can make the game and get involved that would be great, a few extra players so old fogies like men don't have to play 90 minutes could save his old creaking joints. Lol.
If you can't make it then donations or just tuning in to the Facebook live viewing of me making a tit of myself would be great.

I don't know about you guys but the site has given me so much over the years, I've been posting since it was a single page, and it's been a pleasure to watch it grow and be small part of that. So I'm more than happy to give a little back.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 23:33:01
Hey gents, if this ever happens again, Iā€™d be happy to simultaneously set one up on the other side of the pond for max effect. I am an American currently living in Hawaii and I am certain that I could pull something together to double our efforts.

Let me know if something like that would interest you all.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 23:47:16
Shame nobody from ireland sets one up.

4.) 10 Jun 2018 23:50:06
I'm in the team with you Shappy. looking forward to it.

If i could play on Saturday, Ed001 would liken me to Luka Modric in a player profile. would love to have played though.

{Ed001's Note - I was told you are more like an elephant dosed on valium trying to tap dance in concrete boots.}

Excellent Lee mate, thought it was just me and Ken from the united page. Looks like we might have the three musketeers now. Lol.

8.) 11 Jun 2018 10:44:38
Feeling very vulnerable around all the Scousers.

9.) 11 Jun 2018 11:49:35
Boys keep the ball moving forward,
Don't park the bus.
Hold hands with their best player and pull him to the ground and try to get a sneaky elbow on their keeper early on in the game then take shots from 30 or 40 yards out. šŸ˜€šŸ˜€šŸ˜€ that should do it.

10.) 11 Jun 2018 13:45:24
Would love to have played lads unfortunatley Iā€™m moving house to ulverston that day. Hope yous get a good day and a great turnout!
Enjoy yourselves.

11.) 11 Jun 2018 16:02:05
Have fun lads would have loved to have been there. Hope to be there next year.

12.) 11 Jun 2018 16:06:11
Far from it Ed, if you see me play i think you'd recommend me to Jim Lawlor.

13.) 11 Jun 2018 16:13:32
I refuse to watch this because it could ruin my belief that Shappy is really comedian Shappi Khorsandi.

14.) 11 Jun 2018 16:22:39

Thanks ed. Obiang from Sampdoria to West Ham is an interesting one.

{Ed001's Note - they are pushing the boat out, they are targeting European football at the Olympic Stadium.}

2.) 13 Jun 2015 10:31:15
They're assembling a pretty good squad, aren't they. Obiang was highly touted a few years ago so could prove to be a very good signing.

Thanks Ed001, every bit of analysis and discussion you guys provide is greatly appreciated by everyone! : )

2.) 14 May 2015 17:57:12
This is a fantastic addition to the site Ed! Thank you. Might stop the constant questioning over the same topics too.

3.) 14 May 2015 21:07:30
Well that answers my question on the banter page! Thanks as always ed



25 Nov 2014 16:33:24
Thanks to all of you that have been helping to beta test our new game, Flat Out Horse Racing at it is completely free to play, and will remain that way even after it leaves beta. Currently Ed033 is working on converting the game to HTML5 so that it can run on mobile devices.

Once that is done, he will be putting together a monthly prize draw, which you can enter by buying tickets using the game money you have won through playing the game, as a thank you for your help with the testing. So the more you play it, the more chance you have of winning.

Also, in case you haven't spotted it yet, we have made some changes to your accounts on here, which you can find through your 'My Recent Posts' link currently. Or you can see those changes on other people's accounts by clicking on their name under a post.

You can now add a profile picture, as well as your avatar, plus some information about yourself if you choose to. There are also areas there to display how you are getting on in our games and competitions, if you are taking part.

The recent posts are still displayed on that page, but the links will be changed later to reflect the changes, as you will be able to edit your profile direct from that page. Your full set of profile badges will also be displayed there, when they are up and running (which is one of the next things on Ed033's to do list).

1.) Superb work ed thanks for each and evryone of yours dedication towards this site.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) Thanks Ed - I just had a 16-1 romp home, it was more exciting than watching Utd this season, haha. Appreciate all of your work on the site.

{Ed007's Note - Well done.}

Great read ed I wasn't aware of some of the background things in your article . It was that world cup that made me enjoy international football . That France Germany game and shumackers challenge are stick with you forever moments .
I didn't know a single Brazil player before that tournament but I knew them off by heart after it and I can remember plaguing my dad about how come England are out when we hadn't lost, not even on pens .

{Ed001's Note - I never knew anything about his autobiography, I don't even remember that challenge from the time (I must be a little younger than you) but I have seen it many times since and it is still sickening.}

2.) 15 Feb 2019 11:32:43
I am too young to remember any of these but it was an enlightening piece Ed, thank you!

{Ed001's Note - I would say you are welcome, but now you have made me feel old so I am not so sure you are!!! Seriously, glad you enjoyed mate.}

1.) 15 Feb 2019 06:17:27
Sounds like a better version of Ander Herrera.
He would be the perfect signing to play alongside Pogba and Matic.

The PSG game highlighted our lack of creativity from central midfield when Pogba is stifled.
But not sure whether United still has interest in him or if he is willing to move.

{Ed001's Note - he would be excellent in the midfield, personally I think you could do worse than replacing Matic with him, rather than Herrera. Then you would have him on the left side, Herrera on the right side and Pogba dossing around wherever he wants.}

2.) 15 Feb 2019 06:28:45
Agree Ed.
Would be a massive signing.

{Ed001's Note - I would love to see him out from under Simeone and given some freedom to play. I want to see what he can do given his head.}

3.) 15 Feb 2019 09:14:14
I honestly don't get why dome fans want simeone as our next manager. Sure its effective but i'd rather watch paint dry.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced he is as good as people make out either. These are the worst Barcelona and Real Madrid teams in years but he struggles to compete over the course of a league season. That is when he should have the advantage as neither of those teams can rely on their superstars to win them every game. When the cameras are on in the big games big players turn up and perform, but in the little games the stars often have off nights. While a good balances team like Atletico should not have that problem and so should turn up pretty much every week under a top class manager. Especially when you consider how week the Spanish league is outside of these 3, you have to wonder if Simeone is really that good.}

4.) 15 Feb 2019 11:13:07
Thanks Ed001, what a player he is!

{Ed001's Note - one of my current favourites mate.}

5.) 15 Feb 2019 13:37:03
Agreed Ed. Madrid have been shocking this season and you realise just how much Ronaldo carried them, even on a decline and not running as much his goals really did carry them. I think Barcelona have slowly declined since first xavi then iniesta left. Messi hasn't looked the same without them.

{Ed001's Note - they have both bought badly as well which hasn't helped. Though Vinicius is fantastic.}

6.) 15 Feb 2019 15:47:40
He does look a prospect. I know eyes were raised at the fee at the time given his age/ inexperience but given the way fees have gone could turn out a bargain.

Goalie Paul Woolston was released.
Matty Willock returned from a loan with St Mirren and went back out to Creepy Crawley.
Tom Sang joined Fylde on loan.
Zak Dearnley joined Oldham Athletic on loan.
Regan Poole joined Newport County on loan.
Ethan Hamilton went to Rochdale on loan.
Callum Whelan joined Port Vale on loan.
Ro-Shaun Williams went to Shrewsbury Town, I think that was a free transfer.

There you go, I think that is all of them, unless there are some late deals yet to have the paperwork processed by the FA.

Incidentally this was just sent in on the Villa site about him from Davedean82: Axel gets better and better, with every game . his pace and the ground he cover is amazing. Also he's helping Chester recover some of his confidence . That was Chester's best game for ages, him and Axel could make a great pairing.

By the way, in case you lot are wondering why this one is linked here, Kay is the guy that Matt Busby said influenced his managerial career more than any other.

for me it is players that could walk into any side and improve it. Kante would be in that bunch. De Gea would be another. I am not convinced that Hazard would because he is competing with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi etc for a place. For me, I would say there are probably at most 22 players that could be considered world class in the world. Probably 4 or 5 in the Prem.
