Ed002 how are you, Ed I was just wandering have man United any interest in joao felix.

Leahy12

1.) 16 Feb 2019 21:39:28
I don't think 002 Is talking to me😎
Anyway he is a good one for the future, would look good with the young talent we will have coming through in the next few years.

{Ed002's Note - I missed this sorry. Manchester United remain keen on an embarrassing number of JM targets and yes Felix I’d one.}


2.) 16 Feb 2019 22:28:30
Cheers Ed,

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 16 Feb 2019 23:50:46
Why would it be embarrassing? Surely they paid JM to make such recommendations would seem to mad to disregard his input as he a top level coach and football manager.

{Ed002's Note - It is embarrassing as the club gave him little support and are now making a joke of themselves chasing after the targets he identified.}


4.) 17 Feb 2019 09:38:10
I see your point but think Jose made it so hard for people to back him it makes sense too.


5.) 17 Feb 2019 01:43:29
Surely just because JM happened to agree with many other pundits scouts and supporters on some of the best talent around in world football doesn’t mean that they are looking to pursue ‘his’ targets after firing him. There are more opinions than JM’s and it is possible for those opinions to be the same?
Felix is supposedly one of the best young talents in Europe so why would United not be interested, regardless of what JM thought?

{Ed002's Note - It was not him agreeing with pundits, scouts and supporters - his interest in him went back a very long way. The club failed to give him support yet are now looking at his targets. Embarrassing is the word.}


6.) 18 Feb 2019 19:01:20
Mourinho could have had as much support as he wanted yet he still wouldn’t have won anything. No longer anywhere near the top of the game and and too arrogant to change his ways.


7.) 18 Feb 2019 20:08:38
Have to disagree panne. He hadnt the support he needed and i g3nuinely believe he will win major honours again.

And fyi. i consider the europa a win for jose, its a vup we hadne ever wone before as well.

I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.

Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?

{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.

Leahy12

1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.


2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.


3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}


4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying £155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With £155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.


5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.


6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.


7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.


8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.


9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.


10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?


11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.


12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.


13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.

Leahy12

{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}


1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.


2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}


3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}


4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :


{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}


5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.


6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.


7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}


8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.


9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?


10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.


11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?


12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)


13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.


14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.


15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.


16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and £80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.


17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

In 2011 against basel 3 out of 4 of the back 4 started that was the same year we got knocked out in the group stages, have we moved on, no, but we did a lot of panic buying since then,
Nothing against ole but I said from day 1 he should never have got the job then and there.
Whoever is making these decisions needs sacking or it will get worse.

Leahy12

1.) 17 Apr 2019 02:09:59
I wholeheartedly agree Leahy12.
Consider why Young and Valencia were converted to RB/ LB.
Saves money.
Jones and Smalling have never been great defenders. Rojo is very poor.
Bailly is injury prone and has lost his confidence.
Shaw positional awareness is very poor.

Dalot and Lindelof look good. (Lindelof has come on leaps and bounds) .

Top teams are build one solid defence. a lot of clubs are going to be rebuilding this summer. That makes transfer more difficult.

Unfortunately I think we will continue to decline.

Woodward for a guy that is all about money commercially anyway signs Sanchez on a ridiculously long contract and monster wages. Its about time the Glazers appointed someone to run the football side of the club.


2.) 17 Apr 2019 06:40:06
Oh well nothing I didn’t expect. This club has been rotten from the top to bottom for far too long now but unfortunately nothing will change until the Glazers are gone. Dreadful signings coupled with paying astronomical wages to bang average players. We need players who want to die for the shirt and know what it means to play for this special football club.

{Ed002's Note - It has nothing to do wityh the owners.}


3.) 17 Apr 2019 07:10:50
Mad Hatter I don’t know how you or anyone can say it’s to save money. We’ve spent obscene amounts.

If you’re looking for someone to blame, point your finger towards EW and poor recruitment.

We’ve spent a lot and spent it badly.


4.) 17 Apr 2019 07:58:19
Woodward won't be sacked. But he has to become more wise to spending and wages. The fact that he gave the likes of shaw and martial mass wage increases when they were on good money anyway. The reports of rashford being offered 250-300k is quite frankly laughable. We need to be more wise and anyone that wants out should be shown the door. I just hope we steer clear of rakitic, kroos, bale and costa more big name mistakes. We need to build a team for the future. In the short term we need to become a regular in the champions league places before any runs at the title.


5.) 17 Apr 2019 08:49:13
Sorry Ed totally disagree there the owners who employ the staff ie Ed wooden top. The buck stops with them.

{Ed002's Note - The owners do not employ the staff - they have representation on the board that makes the decisions. It seems to be a theme that the MU supports simply don't understand the structure of the club and sure as hell don't understand how the club works.}


6.) 17 Apr 2019 09:20:37
Thank you Ed, I have been saying this for the past two weeks, the owners have put put people and teams at various levels and sections to run the club, if we want to lash out at anyone then let us hound them and let the owners be. Similar analogy is when the street light outside my house is not working and I start blaming the prime minister or the president of the country.

{Ed002's Note - President May has no interest in your street lamp.}


7.) 17 Apr 2019 13:31:36
Wazza,

Converting Young and Valencia into defenders is a money saving tactic.
Why else would the manager do that.


8.) 17 Apr 2019 16:08:38
MH. You’re totally wide of the mark.

We spent how much on Bailly? He can’t get a game ahead of Smalling and Jones. Maybe that money should’ve been spent on a good quality RB or RW.

Who else. Miki, Sanchez, even Pogba?

Fred and Lindelof have shown a bit of promise but for the money spent we need players who fit right in.

Lukaku at a very high fee can’t nail down a place.

All bad investments.

Naturally if you’re trying to buy success like we have for the past 5 years a line has to be drawn somewhere. You can’t buy a new team every summer.

Valencia and Young are playing full back, like Jones and Smalling are still playing CB, because we’ve spent our budget elsewhere and badly.

Maybe money should be saved on the salaries of those employed to advise and recruit.


 

 

07 Apr 2019 14:11:51
Has anyone on here watched tuanzebe playing for villa, I have read a few good reports but never seen him play cb for villa, it would seem he is more comfortable at cb rather than rb,
Will he need another season at villa before he steps in at United.?

Leahy12

1.) 07 Apr 2019 14:43:14
He was their best player before he got injured. I think he looked really commanding and authoritative every time he played. He’s definitely a cb imo. I honestly think he would be starting with lindelof at the moment he he hadn’t gone on loan. I think he should be involved next season as 3rd/ 4th choice cb ahead of Rojo, Jones, smalling and behind lindelof and a new signing.


2.) 07 Apr 2019 15:34:53
I think if he was ready for the first team we might not have renewed Smalling and Jones contract. Rojo will leave I'd imagine. So with Bailey, Lindelof, Smalling and Jones. I can see Bailey leaving and someone being brought in potentially start next to Lindelof next year.

Another year for Tuanzebe on loan will do him no harm. Just make sure we don't balls up what club he goes to.


3.) 07 Apr 2019 16:43:15
I think you’re right mumbles, however he could maybe be used to cover right back and if I remember he did well in front of the back 4 for a few games? However a loan would be better than having him getting the odd game here and there.

Looks a talent.


4.) 07 Apr 2019 20:09:24
Mumbles, we could sign Ramos, godin and varane. Smalling and jones would still get new contracts.


 

 

02 Apr 2019 17:19:22
Big game tonight a win keeps us in the hunt,
Wolves are a good side and can cause any team problems, I think we will do it.

Declan rice declares for England.
First they take our potatoes now they take our rice😂😂😂😂.

Leahy12

1.) 13 Feb 2019 21:51:21
You mean the guy who was born in England, as well as his parents, he has two Irish Grandparents. It's a ridiculous rule, you should only be allowed to play for your country of birth or the country you spent the majority of your childhood as I can understand how growing up in a country will probably make you feel more closely associated with that country.

Everything else is a cop out to play international football.


2.) 13 Feb 2019 22:33:09
Spot on shapoy but we need the players, but when he thought he had no chance of playing for England he had no problem playing for Ireland,
Now the rules are all over the shop.
For me I'd know what country I'd be playing for from a young age,
The question is if you play for a country underage that's your country full stop.


3.) 13 Feb 2019 22:34:56
I think he was just making a joke.

Welcome to my world, Leahy ;)


7.) 14 Feb 2019 07:44:18
Correct decision for the lad. Terrible way to go about it.

I'm Irish, have an English son. Born and raised in London. What's not to say he feels more aligned to the Irish side of his family when he grows up and wants to play football for them, that's if he is good enough of course.

Who is anyone to tell him any different?


8.) 14 Feb 2019 08:58:45
Angel, as pointed out by Pellegrini in relation to Declan Rice. If your good enough you'll play for England, if not then you'll play for Ireland. Lol.


9.) 14 Feb 2019 09:30:24
Spot on, Angel. My young lad's half Scottish, but he would never think of playing for them given the chance. He's lived all his life in Northern Ireland. Breaks his mother's heart 😁.


10.) 14 Feb 2019 11:17:53
Sly digs like that, I would have thought were beneath you shaps. maybe not.

Still doesn't answer the question I posed above. Who's to tell my son as and English born boy who is steeped in Irish history that as he was born here he can only play for England.

You're usually a good Poster, but that above is a load of tosh.


11.) 14 Feb 2019 11:59:30
When your young enough and good enough to play for a country at under age you decide then who you play for, it not a problem, then and you cut out all of this.


12.) 14 Feb 2019 12:16:55
Angel, its a "banter" site, no such thing as sly digs just good natured banter. Being Irish I would have thought you would have a sense of humour.

On to your question does your lad speak with an Irish accent? Does he identify as Irish? What about him other than having an Irish parent makes him Irish?

I understand as a proud Irishmen you would want your son to represent your country. However, how much he truly feels "Irish" might be hard for you to ascertain.

Would he feel at home living in Cork or Limerick, Galway or Dublin? Would he feel that he is where he belongs?

If so then he might well identify as Irish. However, international football needs to be built on a set of rules, firm, clear and non-negotiable rules.

If we are going to compete under the banner of nationality then there needs to be a clear line between what makes you that nationality or not. Otherwise its not really international football at all.

At the end of the day all human life started in what is Ethiopia today, so should everyone have to play for that national side? No clearly not, that's ridiculous.

So a line needs to be drawn somewhere. Personally I don't agree with "nationalised" status if that happened during adulthood. If you grow up in a country I can understand why you feel attached to that country more so than the country of your birth.

Should you be allowed to represent a country you have never lived in? that maybe your parents have never lived in? That you can't speak the national language of? For me the answer to all three should be no. I would argue that you do not have a stronger link to that country than the country of your birth or the country that you grew up in or the country of your mother tongue.

The grandparent rule is ridiculous and only in place for countries to pick players better than they can produce but not good enough for the country of the players birth.

In 1998 when "France" won the world cup it was a shambles. You had players from the four corners of the world playing in that side. Trezeguet wasn't even born in the same continent. When there are currently 38 Brazilian born players currently representing countries around the world that AREN'T Brazil it makes a mockery of International football.

If 90% of the Irish national team only "qualified" to play for Ireland through their grandparents would you truly consider that an accurate representation of Ireland?

22 of the 25 man squad never lived in Ireland, don't have Irish accents, don't truly know Irish culture and certainly haven't lived or experienced it.

I understand why you would want your son to represent YOUR country, but just be aware that it is YOUR country and not his.


13.) 14 Feb 2019 12:55:54
Shappy, you're missing the point. I will be very happy for my son to play for England should he desire. I've no issues at all.

My point is, who is to tell him he can't play for Ireland going your point of 'should be born there or grown up there'?

All in all, international football is a joke. But I feel my point still stands. I hope he grows up to be as connected to Ireland as he can particularly through his family.

But it will be his choice should he want to play for Ireland and feel nobody should be allowed to tell him otherwise.

If he is good enough to play for England I'd be just as proud.


14.) 14 Feb 2019 13:19:40
Angel, So should he be allowed to play for Brazil? Or France? Or Germany?

Who should tell him he can't? There are always rules, what I'm suggesting is that they aren't strict enough at the moment and I feel they have been relaxed with the intention of getting more higher quality players in to International tournaments. However, in doing so they undermine the idea of it being an international tournament. I disagree with having managers from different countries. If you are competing as a country then you should be hiring and playing people who are genuinely from your country.

Players like George Best never got to play at the World cup, should he have been allowed to play for England just so he can play in the tournament? No, and in that instance we are talking about one of the best footballers to have ever played.

There are rules and they are in place to protect the integrity of the tournament. I don't think allowing players to represent countries they have never lived in or have a genuine connection to should be allowed to play for those countries.


15.) 14 Feb 2019 15:15:00
I get where you're coming from Shaps, and I do think it probably should be restricted to parent's nationality. But it's easier to preach about strict nationality rules, when you belong to a country with a population of 60 million. Smaller nations don't have that luxury of a large talent pool, and if they're not allowed to use every advantage within the rules, then you may us well just let the big nations play each other all the time, because the chances of smaller nations staying competitive are greatly reduced.


16.) 14 Feb 2019 16:37:22
And sorry shaps. Sometimes hard to read between lines. I do have a great sense of humour, I swear 😂.


17.) 14 Feb 2019 16:38:27
Good point nou. International sports have become a joke though. Look at rugby, cricket etc.


18.) 14 Feb 2019 19:34:06
Stevie, are you taking the P? You had Georgie Best, so don't preach about smaller nations not having the talent.

On a serious note though I get what your saying. However, that still allows larger nations to abuse the system like France in 98, Germany with Kevin Kuranyi, Portugal with Deco or Italy with Thiago Motta.

These aren't small nations that typically struggle to qualify.

I feel the rule need to be stricter if you want to call it an international tournament. However, I do concede that the qualification process needs addressing so the smaller nations aren't shoved to the periphery as they currently are. Unfortunately the money is made by the "big" or "famous" football nations being at the tournament so they do rig it to make sure they are more likely to qualify with the seeding system. It sucks, but money makes the world go round, or so they say.

Shapps, we are talking about a kid who's dad is Irish. If he feels more Irish than English due to his heritage and family, then who is anyone to tell him different. He is 1st gen and entitled to travel with his Irish passport. My boy is Irish and English, can play for who he wants.

Why would he be allowed to play for Germany or Brazil, using random countries to try and illustrate a point that makes no sense.

You stated if he's born in a country or grew up in a country then that's who he should play for. And I say nonsense to that. I'm arguing that point.

There should be a line, I think the Declan rice scenario was nonsense. His dad wasn't even born in Ireland. But the fact that he played for us all the way to and even 3 senior caps and then could change allegiance. That was nonsense too.

But born or raised in a country and can only play for that country I think is just silly.

I've got plenty of mates that are born and raised here but both parents are Irish and feel more connected to Ireland than most Irish born people I know. Using your logic, they wouldn't be allowed to represent Ireland. But in no way do they feel English?

Or graham le saux or terry butcher or john barnes
Lots of english examples too left out of your post.

If the rules are there its up to the player. Rice is doing what he feels is right. I don't think he will play 10 games for england but its his choice he has to go with his heart.
Ray houghton had the best record imo a scots man scoring for ireland to win a match in euro 88 against england the stuff of dreams. 😂.

Angel, my point of throwing countries like Brazil in there is because you said "who is to say who my son can or cannot play for? "

Yet your happy to accept he can't play for Brazil.

So my point has always been about where that line should be drawn.

Your point seemed like you were saying there should be no line. Yet you agree he shouldn't play for Brazil thus contradicting yourself on there being a line somewhere. My point was to highlight that you yourself would put boundaries on what is and isn't allowed. So you can't really then go on to say no one can place boundaries.

It's tricky, especially between England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. As the cultures are very similar. Yet if you agree that there is a difference between English and Irish culture then a line can be drawn.

Personally though my understanding of how people develop and gain an Identity I feel that you really do need to spend a significant part of your childhood in a country enveloped in that countries culture to adapt and adopt that country as the over riding part of your identity.

I know a great many people who were born in one place but grew up in another, or were born to parents from other countries. Sadly they often struggle to feel truly connected to a place or culture that just isn't a part of them due to not being exposed enough to it at an early age.

That's why for me it is sensible to draw the line at having been born or lived a significant amount of time in that country as a child.

Any of the eds interested in doing a bit of journalism for this guy, he pays well but might take your life if you critise him or his country
What a nice man.
Do we need his money, aren't the glaziers bad enough, united as a club can generate a lot of money on its own, just need a few players that will play for the shirt.

I agree mort but it looks like an emotional appointment, he had an easy ride for a few games, got through psg luckily, then most united fans that were happy we scrope past psg, everyone got carried away, ex players, players, fans on emotion said give him the job, I seen rio on bt, get the contract give him what he wants,
We rushed it and for me made a mistake.
Now today we look at the players, their not playing for the love of football, not for the love of united, but for the love of money,
I'd dock all their wages after today, and a united player launching a clothes range last week, do that when you retire, they retire young enough.

It really is time to make some harsh decisions, followed by Ed Wood taken away from all footballing decisions including contracts and signings.
Get a dof in fairly sharpish.

Any United fan that says he doesn't care if Liverpool win the league is lying, every united fan that I know personally would hate to see Liverpool win the league, be honest tell the truth, don't min d being politicial correct.
Can you imagine socaol media if they do, I have a few mates that are Liverpool fans, boys I work with and all that, I couldn't bare to be listening to them if they win it.
