According to 'reports', De Gea is set to sign a new 5 year contract, would be signing of the summer for us. Any of the Ed's know if this is true? Thanks.


{Ed004's Note - If Alisson goes to Madrid I'd be quietly confident of him signing a new contract. Would be a massive signing}



26 May 2018 18:25:44
The brother of Marco Materazzi saying Savic will join United, fingers crossed but taking it with a pinch of salt lol. Sky also reporting Madrid will come in for Dave again and Alisson as back up😬.


1.) 26 May 2018 18:48:59
So many rumours flying round. If they can be believed out midfield next year will be Matic, Fred and Savic.
With Pogba and Fellaini sold, Carrick retired.
Silly season upon us.

2.) 26 May 2018 18:49:20
I would think Dave is untouchable at the moment it would have to be a huge amount for us to consider selling him to Madrid, I do think though that things have to improve or he may push for a move end of next season.

3.) 26 May 2018 19:07:40
Yes, but Materazzis brother says we only get Savic IF we can off load Pogba.

4.) 26 May 2018 21:50:29
He is contradicting himself, says Savic is already sold to united, means done deal, then brings Pogba in the picture.

5.) 26 May 2018 22:36:31
Really hope sell Pogba and bring in SMS.

Would alter many dynamics at United, on-field and off-pitch.

6.) 27 May 2018 08:02:46
If we could get Savic, I would happily take a Pogba/ Bale swap.

7.) 27 May 2018 11:11:23
Isn’t he well happy with a MF of Matic, Fred and SMS.

8.) 28 May 2018 17:11:38
Dave and Pogba going nowhere 😆😆.



21 May 2018 22:37:22
Any of the posters/ Eds know if Darmian to Juventus is close to completion?

August 2015 vs Spurs we thought we had the next Gary Neville on our hands lol.


{Ed004's Note - It seems a likely move}

1.) 21 May 2018 23:29:37
One down in the deadwood department.

{Ed002's Note - What an awful thing to say.}

2.) 22 May 2018 00:11:43
My bad Ed, sorry. 😬.

3.) 22 May 2018 01:19:49
One of the best rb in serie a for 3 seasons and a starter on the national team. he was good player before moving to Manchester.

4.) 22 May 2018 06:31:12
Agoutis. You nailed it mate, like so many others he has gone backwards since coming to OT.

5.) 22 May 2018 08:54:16
Rumours say its close to done. He started well an then just faded. Not sure what happened there. Good he's going and I'm sure he'll do well.

6.) 22 May 2018 09:08:38
Slightly misleading. Big difference between the Italian league and the premier league. Some players struggle to adapt to it. Doesn’t make him a bad player, just poorly scouted and not right for this league or us as a team. Move on and get back to playing some football. He came from Turin so ammove back home to Juve is perfect for all parties.

7.) 22 May 2018 11:08:02
Swap with Sandro is likely I believe.

8.) 22 May 2018 12:56:06
In the standing tackle I hardly recall any player being able to pass him, he’s brilliant in 1-1 situations. Unfortunately he’s slow and can’t cross. He’d have been a great RB 20 years ago but his style is old fashioned. Pleased for him tho that he has a chance to play at Juve.

9.) 22 May 2018 15:34:29
Spot on, Wazza.

10.) 22 May 2018 16:47:43
‘Big difference between the Italian league and the premier league. ‘
Just as well we’re not being linked to just about every fullback in Serie A then!

11.) 22 May 2018 17:23:01
That’s why I advocate Rose instead. Not convinced by Sandro.

12.) 22 May 2018 17:35:36
I agree, can’t compare winning a title and playing in the latter stages of the champions league to the experience you get sitting on the Spurs bench.

13.) 22 May 2018 19:27:40
Welcome back Danny, we’ve missed you.

14.) 22 May 2018 20:52:50
We could sign Messi and turn him into Roberto Saldado in this set up under Jose.

15.) 23 May 2018 12:30:44
“Deadwood - people or things that are no longer useful. ”

Seems quite apt. Jose has been too soft over the last Windows. The churn needs to continue. Jones, Smalling, Fellaini, Valencia, Blind, Mata May not all go but are lacking in ‘usefulness’.

16.) 23 May 2018 17:57:57
Timbo, it's a derogatory term for players, who's only crime was to agree to play for Utd. In my opinion, every player who's ever pulled on the shirt, no matter their ability, has added a footnote, however small, to the history of this club. That deserves a bit more respect than being labelled as deadwood.



16 May 2018 16:46:02
Manchester United are on the verge of finalising a €50m deal for Alex Sandro. Official confirmation of the switch could come in 'the next few days'. [La Stampa] #MUFC

Wonder if 'La Stampa' are reliable, anyone know? This is the consequences of no Ed002 lol.


1.) 16 May 2018 16:58:53
From what I’ve read it seems reliable. I looked back on other deals they’ve reported and they’ve been bang on especially with Juventus. Terrible not having Ed02 around. Might have to start trusting Sky sources lol.

2.) 16 May 2018 18:16:52
Looks like it’s going to happen which is great. He’s not been picked for the Brazil squad for the World Cup which is ridiculous. Yet England have Ashley young who will most probably be first choice. Says it all really! But without a World Cup we Sandro will be fresh and raring to go. Seems darmian will move the other way so good deal for both parties.

3.) 16 May 2018 18:55:25
Thanks Dan, nice to have a fullback who can attack for a change.

4.) 16 May 2018 19:49:04
Will he be allowed to though?

5.) 16 May 2018 20:28:22
Should do beast, like he used Cole, Maicon, Marcelo etc.

6.) 16 May 2018 21:11:12
Give it a rest for a day at least, beast.

7.) 17 May 2018 08:32:29
Guys, here's a novel idea. Just wait and see :)

8.) 17 May 2018 08:33:25
Hey Beast, was wondering, do you open your party poppers directly into the bin?

9.) 17 May 2018 11:12:08
Come on beast mate that line from Rwwd must have made you laugh😂😂😂.

10.) 17 May 2018 11:19:51
La stampa are basically rehashing what castles said nothing new.

11.) 17 May 2018 13:28:51

Post of the day mate, I like it :)

12.) 17 May 2018 16:05:29
I was thinking the same to be fair. I'm just seeing all this positivity which is ignoring reality and feel compelled to keep showing you what hides behind the curtain.

It's like everyone vents during and moments after the game, then all is forgotten/ ignored because tomorrow is another day and it's back to relying on hope rather than fact.

Truth is we have a great attacking left back and have wasted him, but a nice shiny new signing will answer all the problems of course - just like Sanchez has!

13.) 17 May 2018 16:45:33
Beast shaw is not a great attacking full back he hasn't played 6 games consecutively for 3 years. I think that's you living in hope because there is no evidence for years that he is a great attacking full back.
For every ying there is a yang. Lots of evidence that we are improving lots of evidence that the squad is short. But for anyone like yourself that only looks for negatives there are lots of them to find too.
As a fellow poster for years and enjoyed the Craic with you many a time I have to say that every time any posters finds anything positive to say about anything you just take a polar opinion looking for a negative no matter what it is.
The essence of supporting Any sporting team is hope i don't understand why you try to suck the hope out of any positive comment about the club in general. It's quite hard to read at times and you have often written that jose comes across as a miserable person you need to take a look In the mirror mate as your coming across twice as negative as jose ever will to most.
You have been 1 of the best contributors on this page for a few years but honestly when every post is just to knock any positive comment about anything like your trying to suck the life out of anything that might possibly be good.
As I said yesterday your entitled to your opinions and put them across really well at times. But Now your bias and negativity about the manger is crossing into nearly everything you post.
The other day you said we needed 2 new full backs and you have been saying it all season. Today we are linked strongly (not sure I believe it) to a left back and now after a season of calling for new full backs you are suddenly saying we have a great full back in shaw you have been on the shaw is a disgrace bus for a long time.
My point is I know you have said you want to replace shaw all season but now when its happening maybe, you try to turn it into a negative. It's a bid odd mate.

14.) 17 May 2018 16:48:24
Is he a great a attacking left back?

15.) 17 May 2018 16:51:08
Beast must be talking about Ashley Young.

16.) 17 May 2018 16:50:00
where is Ed2?

{Ed001's Note - everywhere.}

17.) 17 May 2018 17:15:50
Ken - I'm praising one of our current players - how is that being negative?

I'm saying the way we play isn't good enough which by itself is a 'negative' comment, but surely that means I have positive expectations of what we can and should be doing?

I'm full of praise for Martial. I always praise our CB's because let's face it playing for Utd it is very hard not to have a good game with the amount of cover they get.

I am full of praise for DDG, I want players like TFM to get a game. Which is positive.

There are many ways to skin a cat and I think we are skinning it the wrong way. It doesn;t mean everything is negative, I actually think Jose talks sense a lot of the time (and say so), but words are cheap and he may slag off things, but the next game the worst performers play, the style is identical and the learnings are not on view. It's hard to be positive when we play such terrible football and fail to improve on it. I try hard to be positive, but most people on here tend to be overly positive about things, 2+2=5 stuff, so when I call for realism, that is not to be totally negative, it's just to pull in the hype.

Ultimately if this rubbish is praised, then that becomes the new benchmark and that is very very dangerous - there has to be some people prepared to be shot down for the betterment of everyone - I'm happy to jump on that grenade for the squad because most people don't even realise the pin has been pulled!

18.) 17 May 2018 18:10:42
I couldn't disagree with you more mate. I think your anti mou glasses are are tainting everything you see.
You are praising one of our current players now because a new lb is imminent apparently so why praise shaw now when you have been calling for a new lb all season? How many times have u called shaw a disgrace, unfit, poor, not putting in effort or words to that affect this season. Now we get linked to a lb remember a position you have repeatedly called out needs filling and your negative about it? . Why the change of heart?
If we get a new th again a position you want filling will valencia suddenly become a great attacking full back.
You say you tell the truth. So why did you want a new lb all season and now moan when (it might be) addressed?

19.) 17 May 2018 18:32:43
long time reader, seldom poster, but i got to agree on some points with beasty over here. jose talks a lot of sense, but i don't understand why some of the worst players are playing the next game. eg, smalling shouldve been benched a lonnng time ago with his silly mistakes and how uncalm he can be.
but i got to agree with kenny boy over here too. shaw hasn't played consequtive games to prove he's a great attackin full back, bcus to me, i think an attacking fullback should be consistent, and be able to track back 90+ mins, whereas shaw looks tired at the end of every match.

but overall, in terms of your views, both make good points, but i guess we are different people and will have different ways to support the club. some look for hope of postivety on the next match believing what the players and manager can doand some are looking into the past looking at players/ manager couldve done better. but at the end of the day, we still love and support the club.

so can we please jus hold each others hand and say. ”i love you”.

jk aside, lookin forward to our fa final guys!

20.) 17 May 2018 18:49:36
Ken - I want a LB for sure, but only because this manager won't play Shaw - who has been perfectly fine whenever played. If he would just give Shaw a run of games then we could all see what the supposed problem is, but he plays him, Shaw upsets the apple cart by doing well and he then drops him I assume hoping he throws his toys out the pram.

I just think our problems will remain even if we sign a RB/ LB and 9 other players - because the major issue is the person telling those players how he wants them to play. So I am anti Jose because he is so important and in my eyes the only reason we are so poor to watch.

Let's move on anyway mate, long summer ahead and hopefully some good footy to enjoy.

21.) 17 May 2018 19:01:35
Remember when the main issue was cm and all we had to do was buy pogba.
The main issue was creativity all we had to do was buy Sanchez.
Main issue was cb all we had to do was buy lindelof .

Beast makes some good points above the answer isn't always just buy a new shinny toy . which seems to be some fans main objective can u imagine if United got a transfer ban.

22.) 17 May 2018 19:04:25
No sweat pal. always good talking with you. Who do you fancy for wc?
Spain for me. sneaky ton on Denmark for the semi at 40./ 1 one of the crazy ones that come off every couple of years.

23.) 17 May 2018 21:11:21
Likewise mate.

I've got a bit on Belgium, I've been banging the drum for them for the past 6-7 years managed to get 16/ 1 I think a couple of years back, but the price hasn't moved much since. Was going to have a bet on the group qualifiers but it seems so obvious and the odds are so rubbish it isn't worth it, as you say there is always a sneaky one.

I think England may be the surprise team, I fancy S/ F at least.

24.) 17 May 2018 22:21:50
I'd love Southgate to do well. He has made some big calls. Stuck work a lot of the young players that have gone through him at under age. Picked players who he believes in and that can play in his system. He didn't pick shaw and France didn't pick martial. So jose not alone. 😂😂.



15 May 2018 12:26:07
Manchester United are confident they will sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham for a fee of around £40m.


1.) 15 May 2018 13:36:26
would be one hell of s signing. Rumours that Lindelof may go on loan to Wolves as Nuno Espirito coached him at Benfica. Personally would love Lindelof to get an extended run as I think he is very talented but playing regularly on loan will do him the world of good. We seem to be targetting the right sorts of players which is good to see. let's hope we can wrap them up before the world cup.

2.) 15 May 2018 14:00:06
Hoping by august we have a back four of TFM, Bailly, Toby, Sandro. I mean Valencia, Smalling and Young🤮 😬😬😬. Does the window open this Thursday?

3.) 15 May 2018 14:38:33
Yes the window opens thursday, does this mean (if he's not cup tied) we could sign a player from and English club before Friday afternoon and he would be able to play in the fa cup final on Saturday?

4.) 15 May 2018 14:56:34
No they can't as registration was last July.

5.) 15 May 2018 18:42:32
registration is basically why you can't sign a player you can't register them outside a window. isn't it? we only signed sanchez in jan but he can play. would be interesting to know if either side could complete a transfer in time to have the player registered could they play?

{Ed002's Note - No they can't.}

6.) 15 May 2018 19:44:52
All the money to spend on RB's and someone mentions TFM? I'd rather stick with Valencia for now.

7.) 15 May 2018 20:52:31
Last registration period was January. Next is June.

8.) 15 May 2018 21:34:56
Not sure I want a 29 going on 30 Yr old centre back as our main man in defence. I want someone who is 25 or 26 and just about to come into their prime and give us 4 or 5 years good service. Aldeweirauld is a good player no doubt but I don't think he is particularly fast and his pace will only diminish as he gets older.

9.) 15 May 2018 23:57:21
Umtiti with Baily. Lindelof and Rojo as back ups. Sell Smalling and Jones. Make Axel 5th choice next year.

10.) 16 May 2018 10:36:20
Sell Smalling? You honest think Jose will sell his 1st choice centre half?

11.) 16 May 2018 13:15:32
We have a lot of 25 - 26 year old cbs an experienced head to organise it all back there is what we are missing in my eyes.

12.) 17 May 2018 22:39:05
Lindeloff certainly looks set to join wolves on loan. client of mine at work is a wolves scout and he was telling me today. I always read posts like this and think nah. but it’s true!

18 Jun 2018 16:33:54
Belgium look so good on paper yet so poor on the field, Panama look at ease so far.


1.) 18 Jun 2018 17:03:51
There are a few teams who you can say that about. France and Argentina man for man probably have one of the toughest squads to assemble as they genuinely have so many players who should be there. Yet both are flattering to decieve.

Germany and Brazil were the bookies tips to win it. Yet both looked off the pace and venerable yesterday albeit probably against the toughest opponents they have in their groups.

Fact is you won't really see what these teams are capable of until the knock-out rounds. With these competitions it's not how you start them but how you finish them.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 17:24:48
It's what I hate about International Football - below average managers for the most part expected to figure out how to gel a team full of superstars, never going to happen! Then you have 1-2 average players that mess up the moves the team develops. When I look at Germany dropping Sane, Belgium dropping Nainggolan and various others you just know what to expect.

I am about to throw a chunk of change on England for the World Cup, I have seen nothing so far that scares me. It has been a World Cup full of Man Utd's so far - maybe this could be the year!

3.) 18 Jun 2018 17:52:09
Probably better off chucking your change off the white cliffs of Dover. Same end result, but at least you’ll get a nice trip out of it.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 18:10:03
Yet 3-0 it is. Seemed like a Jose team out there didn't it.

5.) 18 Jun 2018 20:53:56
UA, I thought the same, dull football, Lukaku having to come deep to create something, and a player on the left running wild but losing the ball selfishly repetitively.

6.) 18 Jun 2018 22:33:23
Yeah scholes😂😂😂😂.

7.) 18 Jun 2018 22:34:24
Are you having a laugh beast?

8.) 18 Jun 2018 23:35:07

On a different planet some of his posts.



16 Jun 2018 13:00:27
They hate Pogba don't they? He wasn't great today but still scored and assisted Griezmann for the penalty yet got more stick than Kante, Tolisso, Griezmann and Mbappe, Crazy!


1.) 16 Jun 2018 13:18:47
I think it goes back further than today pal .
Wasn't great again today, lost his way a bit at the moment.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 14:03:37
Said something similar earlier Scholes. Wasn’t his best performance but he kept it tidy in possession and influenced the game. France were very poor, but with the criticism pogba gets you would think he was the worst player on the pitch.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 14:11:17
The 'commentators' should be talking about today's game, not about what he's done in the past. He was effective today, which they failed to mention, the agenda against him is actually mind-boggling.

4.) 16 Jun 2018 14:31:34
So is the red tinted glasses .
It's a talking point and the problem is it's been a talking point for 12 month now .
A few good games will soon stop it.

5.) 16 Jun 2018 15:40:32
Scholes lawro was the commentator and it would be unthinkable for him being a Liverpool guy to not bring up the past, that is where he and his ilk live.



12 Jun 2018 16:59:47
Will be interesting to see if the new Madrid Coach' comments on Bale and saying Messi is the best ever will impact Ronaldo and Bale's futures? Also read he's a big fan of Isco and Asensio so wonder where Bale will fit in all this.


{Ed002's Note - It is not his decision.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 17:41:14
Isn’t it that Perez wants Bale to stay?

{Ed002's Note - There is a plan at Real Madrid and in the big scheme of things by next summer a number of high profile players will not be part of it.}

2.) 12 Jun 2018 17:44:20
Wont be Lopetegui's decision Ed002? Sorry, slightly confused. Anyhow, will be interesting to see how he gets Madrid playing. Taken Busquests, D. Silva, Iniesta, Saul, Koke, Isco, Asensio, Thiago all to the WC, so seems more possession orientated.

{Ed002's Note - The coach will be part of the process but the plan is in place.}

3.) 12 Jun 2018 17:53:49
Oh right, thanks Ed002. let's just hope De Gea isn't a part of the plans.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained their plans.}

4.) 12 Jun 2018 18:14:05
Yes i have seen them Ed002, unfortunately Dave's a part of the plan like recent years but we've managed to keep him at United. If they sign Courtois/ Allisson that should keep De Gea at Utd for many years.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 22:15:02
Allisom wants real madrid and if de gea wantrd spain that badly it wouldve happened by now and wouldve moved back there.

{Ed001's Note - to who? Only Real Madrid and Barcelona could afford him and only Madrid are looking for a first choice keeper out of those two. We already seen what happened when they tried to buy him - the fans forced the plan to be shelved. A good World Cup would change that immediately, so hope he has a stinker so they go for Alisson who wants to go there.}

6.) 12 Jun 2018 23:04:43
Here's to hoping Spain get knocked out in the group stages Ed001, can't wait to see William Carvalho, Adrien Silva and Joao Mario pass Busquets Iniesta Silva etc off the park on friday lol. Which team are you supporting anyway Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - I don't really care, I just pick who has the most Liverpool players in it when I watch international footie. However, if I had to choose, I would just like to see someone other than a European and South American team win it. That would be an amazing moment to live through seeing an Asian or African team break their duck. Though I doubt it will happen.}

7.) 13 Jun 2018 00:20:00
Really looking forward to Russia v Saudi I have to say.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 07:43:28
It would be absolutely fantastic if an African team could win the World Cup. I love what the African teams bring to the tournament, not just the football but the culture. It's a shame that the federations seem to be so chaotic at times. But hopefully things are changing and it's good to see Africans coaching their respective national teams.
I'm hoping Nigeria cause a few upsets, Morocco as well.

{Ed001's Note - things don't seem to be changing overall. Just look at what is happening in Ghana, with the FA there disbanded.}

9.) 13 Jun 2018 08:39:02
You're right, the bigger picture is pretty grim. Ghana are a "good" example of how disorganised and corrupt the African federations can be. I really felt that team would make the final. And now, like you say, total chaos.
I was in Ghana in 2005. The country is football crazy. Sport generally actually. It's sad that they haven't been able to build on the achievements of 2010.
I think there is change happening in some federations. I'm hoping Cisse does well with Senegal.
Maybe if Morocco host 2026, the situation will have improved.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed, as it would benefit the game if all continents were better organised.}

10.) 13 Jun 2018 09:45:03
Would love to see Morocco do well. Love the country it is so beautiful with great culture and friendly people. A World Cup bid there would be very interesting because it is still fairly untouched in terms development which is part of its charm for me. I wouldn’t want that to be changed if they were to host the World Cup.

11.) 13 Jun 2018 11:20:01
Totally agree with you Park. I've travelled a fair bit and been to Morocco a few times. Incredibly friendly people. I've never been invited into so many people's homes to eat with the family. Either there or Sri Lanka. Great practical jokers in Morocco. Football crazy too.



11 Jun 2018 16:07:32
Anyone else see the United twitter account roasting Bayern Munich lol? Last game of Pre-Season vs Bayern now.




08 Jun 2018 21:33:59
Lingard was not even in England's Euro 2016 squad. I don't even think he was on the standby list.

Now he is wearing No 7 for England in the World Cup.

I have not seen 1 person, 1 journo, 1 human praise Jose for this.


1.) 08 Jun 2018 22:00:20
Doesn't suit some agendas scholes.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 23:04:07
But Ken, Guardiola has completelt turned around the career of £50m Raheem Sterling lol. Why doesn't anyone mention how John Stones is getting on under his 'genius'?

3.) 08 Jun 2018 23:55:36
Van gaal should get a mention as well in that respect.

4.) 09 Jun 2018 01:18:21
The way Jose should get a mention for giving Morata and Carvajal their Madrid debuts?

I thought we were talking about Lingard's rise.

Also, wasn't Carvajal's debut under CA?

So the good form of Lingard and Young is entirely down to the magnificent Mourinho, yet the poor form of Pogba, Shaw, Martial, Rashford, Herrera, Lindelof, Mata, Blind, Darmian, Rojo ect is down to the players not working hard enough and Mourinho cannot be at fault for that even though it is kind of his job to motivate the players to work hard.

Who needs a press officer providing spin when there are fans out there that will do it for him. Lol.

Scholes. i'm not Mourinho's biggest fan as you might have noticed. But in a post a week ago, i did mention the big improvement in lingard Mctominay young last season. However, for every lingard we have rashford martial pogba shaw hererra mata mkhitaryan bailly lindelof who have all stalled or gone backwards.
So we must take the squad as a whole to see if we have progressed or not. The answer is a big NO.
You write about guadiola with Stones, i agree Stones is rubbish. But look at the job guadiola has done with Sterling Sane Jesus Fernandinho delph and otamendi. They've been transformed from previous years. Also, he changed the rolls of Silva and de bruyne and they have completely flourished last season.
I'm afraid that if you're trying to make an argument for guadiola versus Mourinho, then 19 points gap, goal difference of nearly double say it all.

I was never a fan of LVG - but I mentioned last week I was watching the History channel series Football Godfathers, his one hour interview with Geoff Shreeves - the amount of players he gave debuts to is unreal, so many top players and he said that's where his enjoyment came from, youth set ups.

Fergie and his staff always said Jesse would break through around this age. The desperation smells strong in the OP.

10.) 09 Jun 2018 09:47:17
I think Jesse has improved, but just because he is playing for England that doesn't mean much to me - Southgate is not the oracle, nor was Allardyce, Hodgson etc they were mediocre club managers picking from a limited selection of internationals - mostly on reputation.

He doesn't effect games often enough nor for long enough periods, he is an impact player. Every squad needs them, but he is a 7/ 10 player. Occasionally he will make the difference, but more often than not you wouldn't notice the difference if he was playing or not.

In terms of Jose's effect on him, who knows, but if he is getting credit then he ought to get criticism for those that have stalled or gone backwards as Shappy says. I prefer to look at the overall picture and that is our average players look slightly better, our top class players tend to look like average players! That is wrong for a club in our position.

Well said Scholes. Phil Jones also progressed under Jose until he got injuried 😆😆.

He sulked over a shirt number for a few months DSG, cries when he's hold to track back, looks like he couldn't give a s**t when he loses the ball, and when told to fight for his place when Sanchez came in January he just gave up.

Oh wow, wanted Pulisic for a while, would loveeee it if we got him from Dortmund, perfect for us on the right. On Martial, won't miss him despite being hugely talented, awful attitude is costing him.

Far from it Ed, if you see me play i think you'd recommend me to Jim Lawlor.

{Ed001's Note - I was told you are more like an elephant dosed on valium trying to tap dance in concrete boots.}

Would be disappointed if you don't fancy a game in Fifa? .


{Ed001's Note - I haven't played FIFA since Matt passed as I always used to play against him. He was a big gamer since getting ill as there was little else he could do to pass time over the last few years. I have not really felt like playing it since he went. If you have a playstation account you are welcome to add me for if I ever do go back to it mate. trepei is my PS name.}

It was still okay a while back Ed, but kids nowadays don't get off their consoles and phones. I know what kind of childhood i would prefer.


{Ed001's Note - I love my console but I would much rather kick a ball around outside any day.}

No rubbish Ed lol. Or we could throw it back and play in the back alleyways.


{Ed001's Note - now you are talking! These days we would probably just all end up arrested if we played there. We used to play in the street when I was young, by the time I was a teen you couldn't because there were too many cars and the owners would chase you.}
