Ed002, if you are around, and have the time. Reports in Portugal that United are close to a deal for William Carvalho. Not sure I would believe a deal is "close", but do you know if the club still have an interest in him? I thought we had moved on from him.

PS, I do not read twitter!

betty swollocks

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Carvalho from a number of clubs still and there have been fairly recent approaches by Arsenal and Manchester United. Monaco and Atletico Madrid may also still be interested. Juventus and Chelsea passed on previous interest because of the cost. Sporting would ideally like to keep him a year or two more. Everyone knows the price and it is significant and there seems little room for negotiation. Liverpool looked at the player at the start of last year but I am not aware of any interest right now.}

Ah, right. So he is still on the radar then. Thanks for that, Ed.



25 Aug 2014 22:23:38
Press association reporting than fee has been agreed with Madrid for DiMaria. Β£59.7m. Looks like the deal is all but done.

we NEED vidal or de jong to finish this jigsaw

2.) Defence still needs addressing too in my opinion.

Vidal and blind and I'd be happy.

3.) We are close to having a good squad again, and I can see Vidal and Blind happening. God what a fantastic window that would be and a timely reminder to the rest of Europe that we are still an elite club.

Just got in from the Elbow convert which was brilliant. Just logged on to see all the replies from earlier about Blue Nun. LOL.
AJH, with you being such a wind up merchant yourself I can't believe you took me seriously. You really think I drink Blue Nun? :)
Just for the record I am an Ale man. We have several excellent breweries down here, and I love Doombar, Tribute, Betty Stoggs etc
I do like a bottle of the old Vin Rouge too. I try to get McGuigans Black Label when I can.
Unless Blue Nun is on offer of course lmaof. :)

betty swollocks

{Ed002's Note - I am glad they dragged you out of the vat in time BS.}

1.) Doombar is brilliant. You need to come to Sheffield for real ales, some brilliant ones.

2.) Betty you are a man!

3.) 15 Jul 2014 10:38:22
Glad you enjoyed the concert man ;)

4.) Has to be Cornish Knocker for me!
Where abouts in cornwall are you from, anywhere near the great heights of Four Lanes?

5.) Doombar - 'tis lovely

6.) PeeB, how dare you. A man?
I'm a proper Cornish maid thankyou. And proper Cornish maids drink ale. Lots of ale :)
Wilcey, I'm just outside St.Austell, so not too far from FourLanes.

7.) I was there too, brilliant set. Where abouts in Kernow do you live? Just got my season tickets for next season, so if you ever need a lift up gimmie a shout!

8.) Dan, I live about a mile from the Eden Project in Par. How about you?
Cheers for the lift offer buddy.

9.) 15 Jul 2014 16:31:12
Nice part of the world all of it. I'm in weymouth now and we have badger ales a few miles from us. Not bad for getting wobbly. Was in Plymouth with the kids last week and went round the barbican area up to the hoe and down to a park my kids like to play in. With a few drinks along the way;). Ended up in a nice tapas restaurant near centre of Plymouth.

10.) . didn't expect to see a conversation between a few 'Janners' on here. proper. Tonguer10.

11.) Camborne is the place to be in Cornwall. I grew up there and Betty Stoggs is the greatest Ale on the planet, hands down.

12.) Im in summercourt so not too far. I was working in Par last week! You get up to OT much then? I usually get there once or twice a season but I have gone whole hog and bought a pair of season tickets this year. Long old drive but I have always wanted to do it!

13.) Dan, not been much recently. Me and the Mrs both work full time, and she has to travel quite a bit. Not so easy now we have a little one. Try to get there when I can, with my bro and a couple of mates. Its such a long return trip so when we go we usually stay over night. We've actually done a few CL matches and driven back right after the game due to work commitments, and that is a killer day!
There is no better way than to spend a few hours in the Bishops Blaze before making your way round the corner to OT.



13 Jul 2014 21:11:03
Eds, lots of talk on here about Vidal, and I really hope it happens. But one name I've not heard mentioned for a long time is Lars Bender. Do you know if United still maintain an interest in him?

betty swollocks

{Ed002's Note - It will have moved on.}

1.) Good player but I imagine that 2 CM's in one window will be as much as we do so if vidal comes in I imagine we Will then wait for Strootman in Jan.



05 Jun 2014 13:35:01
Ed002, if you are around, do have any more recent info regarding Gundogan? I know he isn't being risked until next season so as to avoid any unnecessary risk of injury. But a few weeks back Klopp said that his back was "fine" and he has basically recovered from the actually spinal injury.
That is the last I have heard, or been able to find anywhere. Just wondered if you had heard any new info, and if you know whether or not he is still of interest to United.

betty swollocks

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely Gundogan will move this summer, but if he does it amy well be to Barcelona if they rekindle previous interest.}

New season and all that, thought I'd give the live chat a go again. Logged on, read a couple of pages and logged off again.
The bitching and whinging truly is pathetic.

Earlier today people were calling this a meaningless friendly, and saying the weekends first game was much more important. Then we go a goal down in that meaningless friendly, and we get meltdown.

One of the Eds last season distinguished the difference between a 'supporter' and a'fan'. Didn't really get the point at the time, but he/ she certainly made a good point.

Nothing wrong with constructive criticism or airing your views - that's the whole point of the site. But some absolutely NEVER have anything good to say about the team they supposedly 'support'.

That may well claim to be a 'fan' when the going is good, but are nowhere to be seen when the team need their 'support'.

I'm sure the said negative bunch will be out in force to disagree, and the usual banter police will put me straight, but the majority know where I am coming from.

A few friendlies before the season has even started, and the foundations Are already being paid for the perennial 'manager out' brigade.

What ever happened to the days when supporters got behind their team, and through good times and bad, cheered their team on.

I see posts on here all the time about ' City have got so and so', or 'the scousers have better players' etc etc.

Personally, I couldn't give a rubbish what other teams do. Who their managers are or who they sign. What I care about is United and being supportive and loyal to the team.

It's not all beer and skittles admittedly, but that's what being a supporter is all about. I think a few need to realise or remember that.

Very good and sensible post that Betty bur its usually the minority that moan. Most supporters on here are pretty good and very supoortive of the club.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 23:27:44
100% agree good post.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 23:28:07
Sorry great post.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 00:06:23
Reason I stayed away whole summer Betty. Hopefully things get better and also our team.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 06:42:19
Great post Betty.
Too many only support results and or performances. Important as they are this is not the same as supporting the team.
Real support in football as in real friends in life is that real support only materialises when you are down.



30 Jul 2017 17:01:08
Sorry to disappoint you all, but the Magic picture IS photoshopped.
It is an old photo of Matic's head and face morphed onto a picture of recently signed Romelu Lukaku's body!

Betty you spoilt it, it was funny how many believe it.
The club will announce it before the pictures comes out I'm sure.

Oh dear! 😁.

People are believing it because it's real, Betty is taking the piss.

Betty is engaging in banter.

Ed 002 are you aware if matic had a medical at Carrington today?

{Ed002's Note - I heard a cough.}

12.) 30 Jul 2017 19:55:26
Thank you ed 😊.

13.) 30 Jul 2017 20:03:30
Betty's right, magic eye photo, if you stare at it for 20 minutes it turns into Lukaku.

14.) 30 Jul 2017 20:31:51
If you stare at at ozil for 2 minutes he looks like gollum.



17 May 2017 11:08:49
Morning peoples. Just been doing some research into James Rodriguez. I read in here yesterday that he might be a but if a pre-Madonna.
Well, I have found out that Madonna was, surprisingly born in 1958 and had her first big hit in 1983 with the song "Holiday".
James Rodriguez was mot born until 1991, and gained intentional recognition by winning the golden boot award at the 2014 World Cup.

So, to summarise I can confirm that James Rodriguez is most definitely not pre-Madonna.

HAhahahahahaha post madonna then.

Borderline player mate, see what happens after the holiday. As he seems in vogue, he might go to Citeh and prosper as a true blue, which will be music to Guardiola's ears as he sinks deeper and deeper into midfield. In fact, my old man has strong views about him, but I countered with Papa. sorry can't do any more, won't live to tell the whole story.

6.) 17 May 2017 15:06:16
Don't stop now Wallace, you were just getting into the groove :)

7.) 17 May 2017 17:45:09
Lol Betty!

8.) 17 May 2017 19:44:16
Good chance he'd be Frozen out. But, if he did Express himself, he could Cause a Commotion. I imagined he was more a True Blue but if he can perform under the Spotlight, he could be someone we Cherish. You'll See, if can Keep it Together, steer clear of the Hanky Panty and get used to the Rain, he could well Take a Bow.

Great weekend all round. I even put Benteke in me Dream Team this week. Result!

Thats what happens when you take 'relegation fodder' for granted.

betty swollocks

1.) 04 Mar 2017 14:58:04
I didn't play Betty! The fact I got odds of 1/ 4 on for United to win (before the sending off) should tell us that the game to the neutral was a dead cert.

We played how we have most of the season though in the main, save for the first 20mins which was more down to how bad Bournemouth have been recently than us doing anything special to them. We played into their hand after we scored and did what we usually do, treat it like a testimonial, with a manager doing zero to earn his crust yet again when it was clear the set-up needed changing.

A shambles.

Maze, you were clearly linking price and acheivement. If that makes zero sense to you, then why post it in the first place? Yet again looking for reaction and a row.

Maze, what has acheivement got to do with his fee, aside from the fact that they play in different positions.

Steven Gerrard won 1 CL trophy and 0 PL titles.

Wesley Brown won 2 CL trophies and 5 PL titles.

So I guess Wesley Brown was a better player and worth more then?

AJH, you make the point perfectly and I completely agree - hence why this is my first post in months.
It's all become a bit tiresome. If you were a neutral visiting the site you would be forgiven for thinking it was an anti United page at times.
Of course there has to be a balance and we all have different views, but some are just so repetitive and negative it's completely unbalanced.
Still when we have a new manager and 74 shinny new signings we are bound to be too dogs again because City, Liverpool and the like are only doing well because we are crap.
Other teams have no right to invest, improve and be better in their own right, have they?

Arnautovic - now there I a decent player. He is a better comparison to Berbatov than Shaqiri is, but more hard working.

Not a top top player, but lots of ablity IMO. I think he will do very well this season.
