Does anybody know which club Herrera flirted with on international duty?
Was it Barcelona?



1.) 11 May 2017 05:39:08
It was the Hacienda.

2.) 11 May 2017 13:20:15
Brilliant 😂.

3.) 11 May 2017 13:38:25
Showing your age there AJH :-)

4.) 11 May 2017 16:50:51
I was thinking 21 Piccadilly or Discotheque Royale.

5.) 11 May 2017 17:30:44
Konspiracy was class. Rooney was once spotted at grab a granny night at Fagin's.

6.) 11 May 2017 17:32:08
Jillys is where de gea would of dragged him.

7.) 12 May 2017 05:15:08
I preferred Rotters or Pips.

Is Thomas Müller of interest at the moment?
Any chance of him leaving?


{Ed002's Note - No and unlikely.}

1.) 27 Apr 2017 06:52:10
Thank you ed.

Hi Eds.
Since there are a lot of rumours about the Glazer exit strategy i was wondering whether it is a coincidence that the massive United Fan Prince Turki Bin Abdullah is in London with his golden cars at the moment?
Do you have any info whether he might be in talks about a takeover?


{Ed001's Note - I take it you mean Al Saud the Saudi Arabian prince? If so, he regularly visits London, so there is no conclusion that can be drawn from him being there.}

1.) 06 Apr 2016 16:05:42
Doesn't he already own a large stake in Sheffield United?

German media outlet is reporting schweinsteiger has been flown to a Brazil hospital for a secret examination.
Could he be having a medical?
Great conspiracy theory :D


1.) Well it would be nice but I can't see Germany allowing this so close to their opener against Portugal.

2.) I know.
I don't believe it, but it made for great conspiracy post.
He's not going to start tomorrow anyway, so could be allowed to.
Hope we start better then England!

3.) Löw said, Fifa asked for a medical check due to insurance reasons. Sorry to burst your bubble :)

4.) That actually sounds a little odd.

5.) Sorry guys it was for a scan on his knee nothing more!

6.) He said it happened for every player, they had to redo it for bastian due to his knee concerns

Seems like its up to Toni Kroos now.
New president of Bayern München just said the offer on the table will not be improved.
And the player needs to say what he wants someday.


1.) Yes it looks as though things will finally come to a head. A lot of places are saying that our negotiations have gone well and that the deal is nearly done - we will see how reliable these people are in the coming weeks. I suspect that it will all be resolved before the World Cup.

2.) Guardian is saying Van Gaal has pulled the plug on the deal.

3.) Ive just read this. woodward needs to pull his finger out I'll be livid if this summer window is as drawn out as the last and then we are left with egg on our faces and the club to be made a laughing stock for going after players that have no intention of signing

4.) Agree that Woodward can, t balls it up again, or he could be the next one in the dole line. read about van gaal pulling plug on kroo, s. I for one hope not . and last but not least, if we finish below 7th next season . will van gaal be sacked?

5.) 22 May 2014 20:38:07
Getting it that LVG doesn't rate Kroos, so we have no further interest. Don't know why - can only assume LVG has a new target. I think Kroos would have been a good fit. And it seems he was willing to come. Pray we're not seeing a re-run of 2013!!!

Anyone else impressed with Nani?

It would be easy to do a Rooney and cry about not playing regularly and not being loved and being offered all around europe.
But he doesn't sulk at all, always says he wants to play for United and be at his best and play the best he can.

I for my part am impressed. That's exactly what everyone on here seemingly wants, players commited to United.
Let's hope he finds the form from 2010/11!


1.) Nani is still by far out best winger, sorry not buying into the "if Valencia gets back in form" everyone says e had that good season but I I remember correctly he was poor for the last couple of months and 1 goal 4 assists from a winger at united last season is really an embarrassment even if your not in form our fullbacks were better going forward. For me I would get rid of Valencia and young before nani. I wouldn't be concerned if we didn't buy any wingers as zaha is better then we thought and had massive potential. I can see lingard breaking in the first team at some point in the season.

2.) I like Valencia, he seems like the kind of guy you want playing for the club and around the youngsters. I'm not one for sentiment but I say give him another season.

3.) I posted something like this a couple of days ago. I have a feeling this could be a big season for Nani with a new lease of life under a new manager. He just needs the confidence.


4.) Ryan - you don't buy the "if Valencia gets back on form" argument, I don't but the "if nani gets back on form" argument. New manager, new lease of life blah blah blah, surely the same can be said of Valencia. In my opinion Valencia off form is better than Nani off form and they both spend a lot of their time off form, so let's just call that their form.
Also I don't believe that lack of confidence is Nani's problem, his problem is his decision making which has barely improved since we bought him.
I think we definitely need a new winger and to make room we need to sell one, I would definitely sell Nani first.

Ronaldo is going to be pissed after the latest fan voting at Real Madrid.
He received less votes then Sergio Ramos!

His ego is not going to be pleased ;-).
Still doubt he will leave, but if he really is unhappy with his situation there, this might be another nail in the coffin


1.) Probably not getting the votes because he hasn't committed long term!


2.) He can always check his wage slip; I'm sure that will help him get over it

Hi Ed,

sorry to bother you with details about contracts, but I find it to believe.
Some news outlet states, and it was rumoured before here in germany, that Lewandowski has signed one (or two) contracts with Bayern München already and that Manchester United would have to pay compensation should they sign him.
I am aware of the fact such compensation would have to be paid by the player who signed the contract, but he would want the money from the club he signs afterwards, obviously.

My question is: Shouldn't such a contract, should it even exist, be "tapping up" and be therefor be void. And shouldn't Bayern be punished by UEFA or FIFA or all of them :D for such behaviour?

Thank you for clearing this up.
And please be kind enough to clear it up, even if such a contract does not exist, you could still teach me in theory ;-) {Ed002's Note - He cannot sign a contract with another club.}


1.) Thx for the clarification.
Just as I thought.
Keep up the good work, pls.

2.) I read somewhere that he had signed two agreements to sign a contract with Bayern - but I'm not inclined to believe it.

I'm not to big on the rulings regarding tapping up - but the situation you describe sounds a little like that involving Obi Mikel, Manchester United and Chelsea.





10 Mar 2013 18:21:19
Anyone else shocked by the state of Valencia's game?
Can't believe he is still playing like this!
Both facts that his form is not even picking up in the slightest and that he is still picked to play
I looked at our wing options at the start of the season and loved what I saw, not anymore, Nani and Giggs are the best unfortunately

Right now we seem to be moving in the right direction. Winning and scoring goals.
But we started off great last season as well and hardly played a top team this season so far.
So let’s wait a little longer on this, I would say.

Weakening our rivals?
5th and 7th in the Premier League.
Are these the rivals we need to weaken to end above them?
Standards clearly have dropped then.

I heard we might retire the 7 shirt after selling Memphis Depay in his Honor 😂.

According to the report it's not the start of his career he is worrying about 😄
And rightly so, may I say.

You‘re probably pumped to be in Vegas and can’t wait to gamble.
Coutinho arrives in Liverpool and has to play for Liverpool.
Why would he be pumped ;-)

even if they formed a breakwaay league they would still have to buy from clubs outside of it eventually.

The players they start off with will age even if they are not connected to any FA anymore ;-)

And there the 20% would again be applicable.

Everyone would take him for the "right price".
That's the definition of "right price" :-D

The question is rather what everyone thinks the right price is.

I wouldn't take him for free. Massive ego and wages.

Can PSG afford Neymar?
