Hi there Ed002!

Sorry to bother you but would you be good enough to shed any light on rumours that Lindelof has signed a pre-contract agreement with United, apparently warding off strong interest from Roma, who apparently want him to replace Kostas Manolas?

Thanks again for your precious time!


{Ed002's Note - Lindelhof cannot agree a pre-contract with Manchester United as he is not out of contract in the summer.}

1.) 17 Feb 2017 13:57:08
Thank you Ed002 for your swift and definitive response. Very much appreciated.

2.) 21 Feb 2017 19:19:46
Id rather have the kid from roma he looks dast strong an a perfect fit for the prem.



13 May 2016 13:12:49
Some papers reporting advanced discussions with The Legend Ibrahimavich, wages 300k/ wk not an issue apparently.

He also loves Mourinho (inter past) and would be a short term marquee/ marketing signing to compete with City's growing brand. Then he's off to America. Apparently.

Hail the new King! (lol! )


1.) 13 May 2016 13:42:05
Seems a bit wayward to be honest, latest i've heard is that Jose has offered Zlatan a one year deal but the club are unwilling to meet his demands. Will most likely be playing in the MLS next season.

2.) 13 May 2016 13:49:04
I really hope not excellent player but luxurys that we don't need we've seen falcao come and fail and the same to an extent with swine. Rather build a squad for the future than pay someones big last pay day! Were getting more like city when they got new owners just throwing money around without planning.

3.) 13 May 2016 14:00:46
I would love that.

4.) 13 May 2016 14:06:56
I've said before, I would love to see it happen. We have always been heavily linked with Morata today because of the Mourinho factor which is another player I'd be delighted to have.

5.) 13 May 2016 14:19:38
If Zlatan comes in he will inject a winning mentality into the club. How successful it will be is debatable.
He will however not be a flop like previous ones. it's just how successful it could be.
Martial left, Zlatan centre and someone like mahrez Right would add strength and be a great front 3.
To then have Rashford, lingard, depay, as replacements would give the depth
Would be exciting times.

6.) 13 May 2016 14:47:38
We should learn and act better with what's happening with mr. German.

7.) 13 May 2016 14:51:30
Just thinking of Ibrahimovic in utd shirt makes my balls tingle. He would be perfect. A natural born winner who always has a point to prove.

8.) 13 May 2016 14:54:47
Also using schwieney and Falcao as equivalents is unfair. Both were knackered. No reason to think ibrahimovic would go the same way. He's nearly broken a record for goals scored this season.

9.) 13 May 2016 20:41:04
I personally think he would be a terrific signing! And he definitely should not be compared to Schwein and falcao! RedD totally agree, tried and tested, scoring for fun, fit and a total monster, scoring a goal a game ratio! Yeah French league is poor but he's proved it elsewhere on the big stage! Def worth a punt as a free transfer!

10.) 14 May 2016 01:00:18
People on this site are incredibly harsh on Schwieni. Whenever he plays he is always driving forward, pressing the ball and pushing his teammates on. The keys and quality may not be quite there but he has been no where near our worse performer.

As for Zlatan, it would certainly be a signing to bring back the fear factor which is exactly what's needed.

11.) 14 May 2016 09:01:46
Still believe Bastian will be a great signing and always preferred us this season when he played (with the exception of arsenal of course)

12.) 14 May 2016 03:49:25
I thought we were targeting fast attacking players no?



01 Dec 2015 15:12:21
I might be being too optimistic here but Nick Powell looks in much better shape, physically and mentally.

Does anyone (inside knowledge?! ) know the story behind this? Is he trying to prove himself for a loan/transfer? has he had a chat with a mentor inside OT who's made him hungry again? Or is his contract up for renewal?!


1.) 01 Dec 2015 17:20:11
Just watched some highlights of that game, had a hand in a lot of good in that u21s game. I hope he will keep improving, most importantly having his head right should he wish to be a man utd player. He has bundles of talent.

2.) 01 Dec 2015 18:19:22
He had become disillusioned with the game, with a series of injuries adding to the problem. By all accounts he seems to be giving it a go again, and I would love to see him get things back on track. He made a mistake moving to us before he was ready, and could still be a good player with a bit of luck.



10 Sep 2015 11:35:56
So what's happened with Smalling? So the media commentators pencilling him in with Stones as best England defensive partnership for years to come.

He seems to have matured as a player, ball distribution, awareness of others and just seems more confident.

Can we credit LvG/coaches for this?

If only Jones would fulfil his potential now too.


1.) 10 Sep 2015 12:51:00
Where's bond when you need him? ;)

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't give a monkeys what any pundit says and I don't care about international football but as an outsider looking in Harry I'd say this to Wallace, every two years the English media hype up their players and their squad and at every tournament they're found out to be diddies.
It tells you more about the awful standard of players England is producing than anything else if pundits are saying that about Smalling, the Germans, Spanish and the good old Argies must be terrified of having to face Smalling for years to come - I mean Jesus wept, do people actually watch games or just see what a pundit says and decides 'See I must be right, that master tactician Ian Wright said the same as me.'
Why is it when a pundit praises a Utd player he's right but if he criticises Utd or a Utd player he must be wrong and doesn't know what he's talking about or he's a bitter etc?
How many games would Smalling have played if Utd had got any of their numerous CB targets in the summer? He'd have played in the LC and cover injuries - think of an English John O'Shea or the new Wes Brown when you see Smaling, a short-term stop gap until Utd get someone better in, which they tried all summer to do.}

2.) 10 Sep 2015 15:04:11
I think LVG and his coaching team have to take the credit. Faith has been put in him and he is performing well. I'd love Jones to sort himself out too but it just doesn't look like happening for him.

If it was me I'd look to get Stones in January and pair him up with Smalling. We would have 3 of the England back 4 for years to come in Stones, Smalling and Shaw. And if Stones is looking for a move then I could see us being interested. There would be no serious City interest, Wenger wouldn't pay the money, he wouldn't go to Liverpool and Chelsea have quite a few centre backs now so I'd see a fairly clear path to his signing if we wanted him.

3.) 10 Sep 2015 15:05:20
In fairness to Smalling I think he would of stayed in the side, we would only have signed one center back and he is currently the best the squad has to offer.

4.) 10 Sep 2015 14:53:53
Tbf when was the last time Smalling had a bad game ed? He's improved a lot, coming from someone who used to criticise him a fair bit. I think he current looks very assured.

{Ed007's Note - We've been through all this before with players like Cleverley and Welbeck, for years I said they weren't good enough for Utd and there was people on here saying they would be in the Utd and England team for years to come and looked how that worked out.
Utd aren't going to win any trophies under LvG and having players like Smalling isn't going to make any difference, they're part of the problem rather than any solution.
If Chris Smalling was playing for Stoke or Aston Villa would you be on here saying Utd should bust the bank for him and saying X pundit said he'll be playing for England for years and he won MOTM against Switzerland? Folk would just laugh at you.
I always find that gives you a realistic opinion of your own players, everyone is bias for their own team but just think to yourself, if he wasn't at Utd would I want them to sign him?
I doubt that there's many would want Smalling signed.}

5.) 10 Sep 2015 14:55:26
First Smalling - Jones, now Smalling -Stones. Smalling will fall out of favour soon as soon as a left centreback has a few good games the press will jump all over them and it'll be A N Other - Stones. Wasn't it going to be Chambers-Stones that were going to carry us to World Cup glory just after Brazil? I love our press.

6.) 10 Sep 2015 16:39:54
Sorry Ed, this is one I just cannot get on board with. Smalling is maturing into one of the best defenders in the league. Cleverly and Welbeck were constantly criticized, despite having a few good games occasionally. They also played in far fewer games consistently than Smalling has. He was a solid defender last year, and has been outstanding at the start of this season, arguably our best player, you could never have said that about Welbeck or Cleverly. I agree the standard of English players is declining, but to say Smalling is backup at best is pure nonsense.

{Ed007's Note - That's just babbling twaddle, you obviously didn't see the posters on here bigging up Cleverley and Welbeck season after season which is what I said. Do you really think it's a good thing that Smalling is arguably you're best player? I'd say it just shows again how far behind the current top clubs Utd are and how garbage they've actually been lately, I can't even remember the last Utd domestic game I enjoyed watching.
Would Smalling be playing for any of the other 3 of the top 4 in England last season, he wouldn't get in the Spurs or Southampton teams either and the Scousers probably see him as a bit of a diddy anyway, would he have been seen as a potential replacement to Ramos or Hummells if they had left their clubs?
As I said, we'll see where Smalling is in two years time (I'll say Everton or Aston Villa), hopefully by that time Utd have a manager who knows what he's doing.}

7.) 10 Sep 2015 17:16:52

I usually agree with you, but anybody who has watched Chris Smalling play regularly in the last 9 months would struggle to agree with what you are saying. Just because you were right about Cleverley and Welbeck doesn't mean you are right about Smalling, and not sure Cleverley and Welbeck ever had 3 or 4 good games in a row never mind 6 months of good games, like No.7 said, when was his last mistake, because I can't think of any since the City game last November.

8.) 10 Sep 2015 17:25:10
I agree with cleverly and welbeck but I believe a bit harsh on smalling bond. He has seriously stepped up and I believe if he were to play with another top CB he would improve even more. But he has looked the part the past 10 months or so.

Forget about all the England crap, I never listen to that hype, nor do I listen to what any pundit has to say apart from Johnny Giles and Liam Brady, Oh and of course G Neville.

Your belief that LVG won't win anything is quite strong, going to be interesting to see how he gets on. His track record is quite good in terms of trophies so I'm still going to stay positive and with the belief he will win something within the next year or two. I'll hold my hands up if I'm completely wrong. I hope you will too

9.) 10 Sep 2015 18:48:05
Can't disagree about cleverly or welbeck but you couldn't be more wrong about smalling imo. To say he would get in the Spurs or Southampton team is a joke.

10.) 10 Sep 2015 20:29:27
I have literally no idea why I constantly see everyone slating Jones on here. It's as if I'm watching a different game to everyone else. For me he's quality and gives his all, the only problem is how often he's injured.

As far as Smalling is concerned, he's having a decent season so far by his standards, but I still think he's distinctly average and not United quality. All he's really done this season is the minimum that should be expected, nothing amazing or great, so no idea why people are suddenly raving about him.

11.) 10 Sep 2015 21:42:44
Ed said, 'diddies' :)

12.) 11 Sep 2015 01:36:36
Badger, sorry to disagree but I believe half of PJ's problems are that he's so "committed" that his mind wanders from positional sense, and he gets injured going in my tackles you shouldn't need to make.

13.) 11 Sep 2015 01:41:01
Ps Badger, I meant to close my disagreement on your PJ post with agreement on Smalling. IMO he had a slow start, is starting to look more comfortable but still has a way to go.

14.) 11 Sep 2015 05:21:02
When was Smalling's last mistake? In my opinion it was in the last game. He was marking nobody for the first goal. And he was expecting Romero to come out for the second goal instead of being more proactive by pressuring the attacker or trying to cut him off.

15.) 11 Sep 2015 06:15:39
Bond is bang on the money, Welbeck and Cleverley were both nowhere near good enough and Smalling albeit our best central defender at the moment is no Rio or Vidic and never will be.
A very good back up squad player at best.

16.) 11 Sep 2015 07:36:27

I disagree with you on smalling.

BTW I was one of the very few who never rated cleverly or welbeck even when they were having a decent time on the pitch. Smalling barring injuries is a very good cb and n this market worth a lot of money. If we get someone like varrane/marquinos/stone next to him with shaw and darmian, i think we will see our trophy cabinets bulging again.

Jones I never rated either and don't believe he will ever be good enough and only a squad player at best. BTW i also don't think blackett or Mcnair are good enough unless they have an incredible development over the next few years.

Whilst we are on that subject wilson and Janusaj are borderline and the next 2 years they need to improve quite a bit from where they are to make it with us.

17.) 11 Sep 2015 16:09:45
Ed, Cleverly nor Welbeck had a good long run of form where they sometimes looked the best player on the pitch at times, just because Smalling plays for the same club it's exactly the same situation? Anyone who has watched him closely will realise he's becoming a defender more suited to a club like ours playing at the top level.



26 Jun 2015 12:40:14
Maybe we don't need new right back: according to a newspaper, Varela has come back a much improved player.

If so, can we keep him or are Real entitled to bid for him?

Zidane loves him. Apparently.


1.) 26 Jun 2015 14:45:08
I think we already sold him

2.) 26 Jun 2015 15:32:46

I don't think we have mate, maybe he's the reason we haven't gone in for clyne, the forgotten man!

3.) 26 Jun 2015 16:13:53
Speaking of right backs what do you lot make of the reports that janko is heading to Celtic permanently? I'm gutted personally he's only 19 and looks promising.

4.) 26 Jun 2015 19:56:43
Me too might be that we are signing someone big at right back don't have a clue though only LVG knows .He will do ok at Celtic

Thanks for all info on LB and Morata Ed, much appreciated as always.




12 May 2017 11:13:40
Mostly agree with posters such as The Beast who decry the way United play and perhaps it's right to expect more from a supposedly "top class" manager with such resources at his disposal.

However, you need to remember that this team is still in transition. It is currently full of a mixture of players from previous managers, some good some bad, who have been unsettled by Moyes then LVG's philosophy (plus also the come-down from Fergie's magic) ; now, I'm no expert, but I would guess that most football players aren't the brightest and prefer to have a simple system in which they know their role. Yes, top players are paid lots to adapt and should do it quickly, but I suspect it's not that simple. So firstly, JM has come in and found the team and the tactics in disarray.

Secondly, I think that Mourinho, despite the hype, is a manager with a, ahem, certain vision on how to win matches. I believe that he wants a certain type of player: one who gives 100%, tracks back, is quick and doesn't question him in private or public: how many of these players are at United? Herrera, Valencia, BAilly, Rashford? Not many - they are "mostly Mourinho", not "just Jose". So he needs a window or two to bring in the players he wants - and get rid of the Ines he doesn't. Winning is the most important thing to him and he'll do whatever it takes - regardless of the style of football. Thus, as United fans used to cavalier attaching football, we need to accept this compromise in order to achieve success. We can complain all we want, but JM won't change. He's a marmite figure who we have to support if we can stomach his methods.

However, and this might appease you Beast, I think that JM doesn't last any longer than a few years at a club because of his managerial style (confrontational etc) and the player she start to hate him. So perhaps a compromise might be that he shakes up the squad and achieves some success for a couple of years then moves on, to hopefully be replaced by a more rounded long term manager who can inspire exciting football AND achieve success ( (Allegri? )

So, yes, the football is awful to watch, particularly given the names that you'd think he'd do better with. But he's come in, found a mess and is attempting to construct and shape a team that he believes will win things. I think we just have to hope that he achieves all his objectives this window and assembled a title-challenging team for next season. And, to be absolutely honest, I don't mind if we park the bus a few times if it means winning the title again.


1.) 12 May 2017 11:38:51
Great post wallace.

2.) 12 May 2017 11:45:21
You could see it last night too.
Blind and Darmian were both absolutely woeful the whole game. Our left side was all signed up by a certain LVG.
He's made some sort of a player from Rojo who was almost destined to leave this summer.
Have some patience :P
And how awful is Smalling, it gives me a nightmare to play this way.

3.) 12 May 2017 12:22:50
I think it's an absolute myth that we have parked the bus all season. We parked the bus at Liverpool early in the season after we didn't at Chelsea and got hammered 5-0, after that we didn't park the bus until a few games ago, we had about 30 shots a game at home but our profligacy in front of goal has let us down. The squad has become depleted, we have lost our top scorer and have had a few other injuries and that is when Jose has started to park the bus in games rightly or wrongly.

I know people have short memories and you are only as good as your last game but in 80% of games this season we have had a lot of possession, a lot of chances and unfortunately failed to kill the game a lot of the time leaving us in the position we are in.

4.) 12 May 2017 12:47:45
Good post Wallace, I agree with most of what you say and I can certainly see why posters like Beast are unhappy but I'm actually a big Jose fan. In terms of style I don't think historically Jose teams play bad football. His first Chelsea team played some lovely stuff and his Madrid team played some attractive football as well. Yes he is more pragmatic than a Pep or Klopp for example, but they both have their Achilles heel. Pep has a tendency to neglect his defence and Klopp has been criticised that his teams tend to run out of steam due to his high intensity style. I think the key here is balance. I'm a firm believer that great sides are built from back to front. I think Jose offers the best balance. It's overly cautious and defensive at the moment but I think that will improve given time. I'm hoping he won't self combust as you've suggested and he will stay longer than his three year contact and give us the stability we need. I'm convinced he'll lead us to great things given time but do agree it's hard to be patient when he plays 6 at the back or 8 when trying to defend a 2-0 lead away at Boro. He hasn't got the balance right yet and I'm not sure why he has been so overly cautious but I'm sure things will improve as adapts to life at Utd.

5.) 12 May 2017 13:15:48
I agree with gds. We haven't parked the bus all season. I honestly think the defensive reputation Jose has influences what a lot of people believe. Honestly last night when we go 1 up, would you rather we go crazy for a second and concede? Or keep it tight and counter. I thought the minute we scored we probably did the right thing in a European sem final! Buzzing we are through.
On another note I'm gutted for bailly, he showed his inexpirence. Also how pathetic was aspas the entire game diving around trying to get players booked? Should have been sent off.

6.) 12 May 2017 13:38:26
Great post Danny, really got me thinking.

{Ed007's Note - You be careful with that son.....

7.) 12 May 2017 14:25:03
Caolan, what a lot of people on here don't understand, is that it doesn't have to be one thing or the other. There is a middle ground. People who defend his ultra-defensive tactics in certain games, always say, 'should we have just gone all gung-ho for a second goal'? No, we shouldn't. But neither should we defend deep at home, against mid-table teams, with 8 players behind the ball. And those who yearn for the swashbuckling style of some of Fergie's best teams, have to realise that's not going to happen overnight, and that sometimes a bit of caution is what is needed at a certain time in certain matches. All this 'either or' nonsense, does my diddies in.

8.) 12 May 2017 18:29:24
100% agree there needs to be a middle ground. A reason why we may be struggling offensively is the quality of our defence? We obviously tried to counter them when we went 1 up. However, darmian and blind were poor which dragged miki further back? Perhaps that hindered us last night. Next season I think performances will pick up a lot more with a solid back line, so our wingers won't have to drop deeper and deeper to cover.

9.) 12 May 2017 18:44:46
I think for a lot of the season we played good stuff but struggled to score, there were many games we clearly should have won but for whatever reason couldn't find a goal.

Lately we look knackered and that has changed how we play, as for last night the tie should have been put to bed in the first leg, it wasn't which made last night a nervous affair. Semis are notoriously difficult, we won, we're through. I've given Jose stick for being a miserable sod but in terms of results it's fine lines.



04 May 2017 15:02:26
Oops missed few others he highlighted!




04 May 2017 15:00:03
Steve Sutton having a bit of a go at JM this morning but think he had a point about why JM's been making public comments about certain players - he's sending a certain message to the board that he doesn't want them there.

So, on this logic, who are the players he's highlighted this season? From my limited memory:

Luke Shaw
Phil Jones

So reckon these will go this summer, plus few others. He hasn't said much Biyt Pogba and Miki as he brought them in. Reckon rest are safe.


{Ed004's Note - he's had a go of the top of my head at De Gea, Smalling, Jones, Shaw, Lingard, Rooney, Martial, Ibrahimovic, Rashford, Mkhitarian and Pogba (I think?)}

1.) 04 May 2017 16:46:06
Hasn't said much about miki, are you joking? Also if he hasn't said much about pogba because he brought him in them why has he had a go at zlatan?

I think you're reading too much into it, he's just said things to answer questions he's been asked.

2.) 04 May 2017 17:17:38
Maybe GDS, but I think that JM thinks carefully about everything he says in public, whether it's mind games with the media, players or just to further other agendas.

3.) 04 May 2017 15:31:44
Thanks for more names Ed!



01 Dec 2016 09:25:33
Does rather seem that Mouribgo is working his way through the squad to get each individual into the right frame of mind to get the best out of them, almost reprogramming them after the disaffection from LvG regime: Valencia Rojo Jones Rooney Mata Martial Herrera etc - all seem to have had their moment in the headlines as each is threatened/ rested/ praised etc. (Perhaps even Schweibsteiger now! )

Though significant those players who haven't been in the headlines because they've essentially been ignored: Depay Schneiderlin Young etc - maybe these are the players who'll be moving on in Jan? Not sure about Luke Shaw though - how many times will Jose try to provoke him into trying harder before he gives up and sells him?

Just shows the huge task Jose has in his hands though.


1.) 01 Dec 2016 09:44:40
i agree in that we seem to be devloping on a distinct style of play, last night the front 4 were very good linked up well and player seem to be expressing themselves more and we play so many more forward passes now actually taking risks in posession.

2.) 01 Dec 2016 11:22:55
I am absolutely in love with the fact that how Jose is doing all the good work behind the scenes.
First thing he did was give Carrick an extension. Something many managers wouldn't have done. LVG was stupid to let him leave. He's 35 we know, but what he adds is nobody in the squad can. His fitness, attitude, and he doesn't like he's going to run out in midfield.
He threw Bastian under the bus and you see Bastian, and he looks so fit, slimmer than Shaw I reckon, and he brings him back to the team.
I think shaw did have a decent game yesterday, it does seem something is troubling him and I know jose will get it right.

3.) 01 Dec 2016 11:39:30
Your right it was a real pleasure to watch the fluid and forward thinking passes/ flicks etc

Now that Martial and Miki are potentially back in the mix - pkusRooney having such a good game at no.10 (where does that leave Mata now? ) - wonder what his best 11 is now looking like? Plus Jones doing well at CB?!

Maybe this also changes transfer priorities: CB and holding midfielder like Carroll?

4.) 01 Dec 2016 11:46:18

5.) 01 Dec 2016 12:51:54
I think Mourinho is doing a great job. And I also think he's already lost patience with Shaw and even Smalling.
Shaw is quick, but he can't defend to save his life and he certainly doesn't have the football brain or the mentality to become a top footballer. Blind is much better in that position.
Smalling and Schneiderlin are just not good enough and should be shipped out.
I would love us to go for De Vrijil from Southampton, but I think the scousers might get him.

6.) 01 Dec 2016 13:00:53
shaw will be fine, give him a few month and he will be fine .
there wasnt many post on here slagging shaw off when we spent 30 mil on him . out bidding jose at chelsea.
he was playing well before a very bad injury and these things can take time .
its not as simple as people think, after a long spell out like shaw has had, it can take time.

7.) 01 Dec 2016 15:19:48
Sorry jred but I would disagree on that. Shaw only played a handfu of good games for us one season (probably 10 games in all last season) . The season before that he was fat and unfit and his attitude questioned.

I hope though he finds his feet and regains the confidence and gets back to his best that we know he is capable of.

8.) 01 Dec 2016 15:51:03
i would disagree with that .
but each to there own .
im always impressed that people can tell that a player who trains everyday is fat and unfit from there armchair .
when the medical team etc can't .

9.) 01 Dec 2016 16:21:33
Im a little sketchy on the medical side.

The medical team deem a player physically fit to play and this will obviously have an element of body weight in that decision making.

BUT does that mean the player is at his physical best? i.e - even if deemed fit to play by the Dr, can the Manager and fitness team still look and ask the player to do more to reach their peak?

10.) 02 Dec 2016 13:52:05
That is not my conclusion jred. These were the words of the then Man Utd manager.

Good post mate, though not sure we should sign him if he becomes available; JM clearly has a plan for next season and knows what players he wants to fit the system. Signing Ronaldo would throw all that out of the window and require the team to be built around his needs - then in a few years when he's gone, there would be no structure, just a bug CR7 hole.

Hope Jose sticks to his plan and not gives in to Woodiz craving for a megastar: would be very happy with a DCM, attacker and forward.

Amazing talent and work-ethic apart, doesn't say much about him that he squeaks at paying his tax bill and throws his dummies out of the pram, demanding the parent club pay it, even though he must be worth hundreds of millions.

But we all know he'll won't leave Madrid this season: they'll come to some sort of deal. Let's concentrate on original targets and get them in before pre-season.

I think we need a specialist defensive midfielder who can break up attacks then distribute to the more attack-minded players. It would obviously be a bonus if they are good on the ball and have an eye for a pass but Pogba and Herrera are better employed further upfield, plus fullbacks and wider players.

We know JM likes this kind of player (Makele, Matic etc) so while a Kroos would be a great signing, is he the specialist that the team needs? My ideal signing would be Javi Martinez.

Thanks as always for such detailed info Ed002! Just listened to Sharkopod again (dig the hippy vibe! ) and chewed over suggested potential striker options: Aguero, Lukaku, Dolberg, Morata, A. Silva, Belotti and M'Bopp.

With some of the above names seemingly bound eksewhere - or just staying put - do you feel that our striker options are between Morata, Belotti and Dolberg, or can you reveal any other strikers we might be looking at?!

Many thanks as always!

I suspect the lower fee compensates for the huge wages they areusedtogetting from United.

VvD top class: big, string, skilful, quick.

However, always had question mark over his complacency at times and whether he's always trying his hardest.

Allegri would've been a sound long term manager.

Shame - maybe Joey Barton fancies a kick.
