Man Utd and Chelsea apparently interested in Jordi Alba LB.

1.) 30 May 2018 09:51:21
Another one in the long list of players who are negotiating a new contract with Barcelona or Real and there is a 0.1% chance of them actually leaving.

2.) 30 May 2018 12:30:25
Agreed, that's why I used the word apparently.

3.) 30 May 2018 16:35:02
Realistically why would any player leave Madrid or Barcelona unless they were no longer wanted? Great clubs, good money and league, amazing cities, great weather etc.

4.) 30 May 2018 17:53:12
I get your point Eric but I do believe beside all that the premier league is a massive pull. Yes weather is crap and maybe quality of living is not as good, but the league is exciting as watched worldwide and many of the top managers are currently managing in it. I’m not saying it’s the best league in the world because it is not. But it is the most exciting and most watched league. And with it being so lucrative, players coming here will get a packet and a half for wages. I don’t think there is any chance of getting Alba but I do think the premier league is a massive pull. Players will choose pep, Jose, Klopp over the likes of Bayern and PSG because their leagues are dead. But I agree taking players from the bigger Spanish two is a big ask.

5.) 30 May 2018 19:49:01
I think the answer you’re looking for Eric is ££££££.

A player like Alba is looking for his last big contract, and if Barcelona don’t stump up, EPL sides are more than happy to pay it.



30 Jan 2018 23:07:38
Mata sign's 1 year extension, I'm happy with that.

1.) 31 Jan 2018 12:57:33
I had no doubt all the players mentioned would either be given one year or sold. Wrongly or rightly it's what we do here. Certainly be more than just two coming in during the summer. Despite what Jose says.

Ed a friend of mine told me that United are showing interest in Marco Asensio, do you know if there is any truth to this?

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid's Marco Asensio has been the subject of interest from Arsenal who were looking at one time to replace Sanchez with him, Liverpool who saw him as an option to Brandt, Monaco as part of any deal for Mbappe and Juventus amongst others. Others included PSG and Manchester United who made tentative enquiries but were told the players was not interested in them - so it ended there. Interersted sides have been told he is not for sale and Real Madrid are unwilling to have discussions with clubs about the player although they could yet be tested by Barcelona looking to pay his release clause - in which case it would be down to the player to decide if he would be open to a move to Barcelona.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 15:55:33
Thankyou Ed.

2.) 25 Oct 2017 15:55:33
Thankyou Ed.

Apparently Juve have entered the race for Kante.

1.) 03 Jul 2016 17:42:45
Kante will join Conte at Chelsea, unfortunately guys.

2.) 03 Jul 2016 18:07:06
Kante will go to PSG when Rabiot or Veratti or Motta goes :)

3.) 08 Jul 2016 12:48:00
Rabiot of PSG I personally think is very under-rated and would take him in heartbeat!



25 Jun 2016 14:10:22
Manchester United have begun talks with Juventus over a £97m world record transfer for Paul Pogba, according to Spanish media outlet AS.

Above just appeared on sky sports transfer page. I still don't think he will come back to us.

1.) 25 Jun 2016 14:50:33
Less than 25% chance. Depends on the pay package and on the Mourinho factor.

2.) 25 Jun 2016 15:25:22
I think he will go to the highest bidder and that may well be us.

3.) 25 Jun 2016 15:29:40
Mkhitaryan, zlatan, pogba, James, Bially plus one other center back and the Mourinho factor would make us instant challengers. I suppose one can dream

4.) 25 Jun 2016 15:56:42
It's looking good. I think we will make one big signing, I would like that one to be pogba, mkhitaryan, zlatan and varane and we will be looking more than good.

5.) 25 Jun 2016 15:09:35
Apparently going to offer £187k a week.

6.) 25 Jun 2016 22:11:50
I think its ridiculous that were even contemplating buyinh pogba for the money their asking 100 million when he went for 800 grand that's would be the worst piece of business ever if that happened by woodward.

7.) 26 Jun 2016 04:21:22
Not worth 100m. better players out there for the position we need to fill in. I would rather buy 2-3 quality players for that money. He is not as good as he thinks and a totally overhyped player for me.

8.) 26 Jun 2016 18:40:11
Pogba will probably head to Real.

Well that's that then, happy with the players brought in but is it enough?
Great defence
Ok ish Midfield
Light upfront IMO.
Feels like amateur are running the club.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 17:21:50
The one positive is i'm happy with the defence for the first time in a long time. But I can't help but be disappointed that we've missed out on Fernandes. He was there for the taking but clueless idiots in charge couldn't get it done. Roll on sunday and get behind the lads!

2.) 08 Aug 2019 17:21:53
Last seasons squad was 6 players short of a good side. Ole and Woodward have brought in 2. A pogba injury and we have no creativity whatsoever, ole is now desperately relying on no injuries, Sanchez to get back to his arsenal days and greenwood to be our main goal scorer as martial and rags are not and never will be too CF.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 17:33:27
Hi herbie.
Strong defence
Truly weak in midfield
Lots of potential in attack. Largely unproven potential but potential nonetheless.



30 Jun 2018 06:14:32
Herrera or Fellaini?
Don't forgot that they are both really nice genuine type of guys :)
Personally I think Fellaini is more beneficial to the squad.

1.) 30 Jun 2018 10:07:31
Hmm Herrera can pass, tackle, run at a decent speed, mark, is tactically astute. Fellaini can chest a ball. Yeah totally worth more to the squad.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 10:22:39
So do you like fellaini then Mort? 😂.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 13:02:42
Personally I think he's one if the worst 5 signings we've made in the modern era. He stands alongside Bellion, Kleberson, Djemba and Bebe.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 22:16:28
Schneiderlin has to be in that list instead of Wig. Now he is a truly average player. LVG and his signings were a disaster.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 23:17:43
True. Make it a top ten. My 5, add schneiderlein, Bastian, obertan, jordi cruyff and last spot taibi.



31 Dec 2017 20:28:57
Happy new year to all posters and especially to the Eds who give us great info through the year, have a top night and stay safe.

1.) 01 Jan 2018 01:23:41
Hear hear. Happy New year to all Eds and posters.

2.) 01 Jan 2018 04:24:28
Yes Happy New Year one and all.

Hopefully we have a cracker against the Toffee's to get the year off to a good start.



31 Dec 2016 23:55:51
Happy new year to all the Eds and posters. One love.

{Ed007's Note - Happy New Year, Herbs.}

1.) 01 Jan 2017 00:14:11
Happy new years eveeryone hoping all of you a wonderful year ahead.

{Ed007's Note - Happy New Year.}



23 Dec 2016 22:25:03

If it was Herrera that said RM is 'A' dream for any player would people be saying the same?
Absolutely not.

"Commercial whore"
Well put, I completely agree.

A good squad player IMO but we can always let him go and spend anything up to £30 million on another squad player. No? Yes? Maybe TFM will be ready to take over Wigs spot in a years time, maybe if we got rid of the wig the new MID squad player might stunt TFM's progress.
Just a thought.

I say cash in on Herrera, he's ok but goes down to easy and gives to many free kicks away, if we get Fred in he will be the link between Matic/ Pogba, Herrera will be a bit part player on big wages which is pointless IMO.

My home town of Scunthorpe will be badly affected, it will be a ghost town after this.
The silence from the local Conservative leaders of Nth Lincs Council has been deafening only to be broken today with a comment from the council leader, "I'm sure a lot of business would like a little extra government finance" - They don't care.

At least we got an expert in his field in Ed dealing with the finances.

Well said, I just wish the owners would back the players/ manager and team a little more.
Football has moved on, we need to move on with it.

He apparently thinks he should be earning a lot of money, more than most clubs think he's worth.
Yes, I would take a chance with him but only if he stopped massaging his ego.
