Nicolas Tagliafico is the latest name being linked with us, as an alternative to Yelled if we can't agree the move with Porto. Is there any interest Ed's?



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach but the amateurs want to offer players as part of the deal for Telles.}

1.) 23 Sep 2020 20:45:09
Ed would Dalot be one of the players we are considering offering to Porto?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

2.) 23 Sep 2020 21:21:13
Heard that Woodward offered Andreas, Jesse and Diogo + 18m to reach the asking price of 25m. Is this true? 🤔🙄😂.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 20:57:40
I take it the deal may not happen then Ed as they are messing about? Honestly the levels of incompetence are staggering and it’s not even a huge financial deal 🤦‍♂️.

4.) 23 Sep 2020 21:07:56
Thanks ed.

5.) 23 Sep 2020 22:47:58
@ziko87 - surely adding them means we have to pay more than the asking price! 😂.

6.) 23 Sep 2020 22:55:04
Gets worse and worse. These guys are bloody clowns.

7.) 24 Sep 2020 06:12:16
Key, maybe you're right 😂 Keep calm, guys, by the end of the window we're getting Sancho and Telles. Sancho deal is done, Dortmund and United just leaving it late on purpose.

8.) 24 Sep 2020 07:49:14
Struggling to offload players costing us dear this window.

9.) 24 Sep 2020 08:23:22
With the club looking to offload Dalot it looks like Williams might be principal coverage for AWB this season.

Another LB we have been linked to again today is Fode Ballo-Toure of AS Monaco. So that's Reguilon, Alex Telles, Mykolenko, Tagliafico and now Ballo-Toure. It seems we are working our way down the list.

10.) 24 Sep 2020 08:40:13
Who would have thought that offering rubbish footballers high wages and long deals would make them hard to shift?! 🤷‍♂️.

11.) 24 Sep 2020 06:22:07
Hey Ed,

Is it true that United are not willing to pay 18M for Telles? I mean that's quite ridiculous, right? Apart from them being amateurs of the highest order, is there any other genuine reason why we are doing this?

Also, does this mean that from being something that could be possible, the Telles deal may now be over?

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as that - in reducing the transfer fee Porto expect the buy to pay fees owed to Galatasary and to pay the agent fees. Even the amateurs should be able to resolve this.}

12.) 24 Sep 2020 09:39:00
LVG was right.
The club get's 7th or 8th choice players by haggling over fees and bullying other clubs.

13.) 24 Sep 2020 10:31:24
Ed002, I often wonder how your career as a rodeo clown leads you to such insights into football transfers. Is such knowledge quite common within the bull ring?

{Ed002's Note - Because of my being omnipotent.}



17 Sep 2020 06:05:42
Latest reports linking Smalling with a move to Inter Milan. The rumour is that Inter want a swap deal involving one pf Joao Mario, Ivan Perisic or Marcelo Brozovic. Any truths ed?

Also who would people prefer as swap if given the choice?



{Ed002's Note - I don't know but I would think they would only be interested as a temporary fix if Skriniar was sold - and would think that Perisic would be the player offered.}

1.) 17 Sep 2020 08:36:29
Signing Perisic who is 31 wouldn't be a good deal.
Untested in EPL as well.

{Ed002's Note - At least it would resolve the Sancho issue.}

2.) 17 Sep 2020 08:40:13
Thanks ed.
Would Perisic be seen as a Sancho alternative, if Inter came in for Smalling with an offer including Perisic.

I personally think we shouldn't have dug our heels so deep with the Smalling to Roma deal. At least the window is still open and hopefully we facilitate deals for players on the fringe instead of digging our heels in too much.

{Ed002's Note - If Perisic were to sign it gives a short term solution only.}

3.) 17 Sep 2020 09:06:13
I think Peresic would be successful In the PL and would continue our history of bringing in a player we looked at in previous windows and even under different managers!
Do I want him, not necessarily but If the Sancho deal is not happening we need to move to whatever the alternative is.
Positives would be that Greenwood's development would continue as I would expect him to see a lot of games. The money Peresic would cost would not prohibit other purchases so we may see another CM as well as LB and possibly even a CD.
Negative is I think this is the window for Sancho as if he has another good season other clubs will be in for him.

4.) 17 Sep 2020 09:31:36
The money involved in the Sancho deal is ridiculous. We are in the middle of a global C.V., economies are screwed. The club cannot justify £120m+ on one player anymore - fans slagging off the club for not recklessly spending are extremely naive. Those days are on hold I think until we are through it. The failure to sell fringe players for much needed revenue is an odd one though.

Put the deal on ice for next season and bring in a short term option or promote a youngster. Chong could have done that job in my opinion.

5.) 17 Sep 2020 10:40:02
It stinks of a panic buy. If they can't or don't want to pay the money for Sancho then we should of moved on from this weeks ago.

6.) 17 Sep 2020 11:02:09
@Eric, they better payup for Sancho now or in a few years you all will the decision to walk away, Halaand. A thing with very good players is that the fees are usually difficult to pay but over time you will be happy you did. He even an advantage in the EPL being English.
Again he may end up at your rival club in the premiership and then it's be rubbed on your face consistently.
I came in peace from the pride of London.

7.) 17 Sep 2020 11:03:30
Perisic is a very good player and could do a cracking job for us for 2/ 3 years. I think we should walk away from the Sancho deal I think it could be a very expensive mistake.

8.) 17 Sep 2020 11:26:09
WE should have just got willian, missed a trick there.

spent all window knowing what Dortmund wanted but still haven't made an offer.

club is a joke in the transfer market

can even sell players that are wanted by clubs it really is laughable.

9.) 17 Sep 2020 12:54:59
does perisic not play on the left.

10.) 17 Sep 2020 13:16:57
Right side and cuts in on his left i think.

11.) 17 Sep 2020 13:33:21
dont now welsh when i have seen him for croatia aways on the left.

12.) 17 Sep 2020 13:51:49
Perisic is pretty much two footed. He is comfortable on both wings but he has played more on the left side. He used to play in the centre as well during his time in the bundesliga.

I think Perisic would be a good stop-gap for a year or 2 if we don't sign Sancho this year but still not give up all hope of signing him all together.

13.) 17 Sep 2020 13:54:14
I am a big fan of Perisic and will not mind him joining us. However he is a LW who turns 32 in Feb. This is a stop gap solution if at all it is a solution for our RW problem even.

14.) 17 Sep 2020 14:07:17
i have to agree with a few on here. I think Perisic would eb a fantastic addition. He is fast and is fairly stong so will adapt to the league well. He can play as a wingback as well which is really useful as we setup with a back 3 against the top 6 and it allows brandon to play on the opposite wing, again its better than having AWB there as his dribbling is not great at best. We will finally be in a position to haev two wingbacks playing on their natural side allowing us to put crosses in.

15.) 17 Sep 2020 14:10:31
Would prefer to go for someone like Domenico Berardi.

16.) 17 Sep 2020 15:16:24
Perisic has never played on the right. Played 90% of games in last 6 years on the left.

17.) 17 Sep 2020 15:54:44
Would have taken him as well as first choice **RM before Ken said he played on the left most of the time. I think we need depth and he's just won the champions league, so has plenty of experience.

**Not sure Sancho is worth the amount quoted. We will have a lot of teams banking up against us like England did against Iceland and Sancho didn't pull any trees up. We will pay 120m euro+ for a unpolished frustrating young player if we are not careful.

18.) 17 Sep 2020 16:42:52
It's ok staying he's a good stop gap but a good stop gap for who? Sancho will may not want to go United next season. If he carries on his form this season everyone will be trying to buy him next season. We may not even qualify for the Champions League. I don't get this obsession with "STOP GAP"

19.) 17 Sep 2020 16:52:27
Sim, me too. If we can't sign Sancho fine. I'd be a little disappointed but I would be okay with it. But move on and sign another young player who could become that world class RW we are looking for.

The year Ronaldinho moved to Barcelona instead of us we moved for a young Ronaldo instead. The rest they say is history.

If we miss out on Sancho then so be it. But let's look for someone else and move on.

20.) 17 Sep 2020 18:03:37
Why are we not looking at Ismalia Sarr as a back up to sancho.

21.) 17 Sep 2020 18:32:57
Perisic is an ageing left winger who should be avoided at all costs. An absolute joke if we sign him.

22.) 17 Sep 2020 19:20:13
Neres or Chiesa for me but not seen any links so doubt it.



15 Sep 2020 14:07:01
Hello everyone
Eds- With Roma looking likely to sign Marash Kumbulla (a player who we had looked at) ; does that end their interest in Chris Smalling? If so are there any sides showing any interest in Smalling?



{Ed002's Note - They ideally want two CBs and have already added one. It is possible that they will also look to replace Matias Nani as well. But they are not happy with trying to deal with Manchester United.}

1.) 15 Sep 2020 18:38:55
Thanks ed

Also is there any truth in the reports linking us with Uros Racic from Valencia eds?

{Ed002's Note - Uros Racic (CB) Valencia would accept €5M for the Serbian. West Brom interest went when it looked like a Work Permit would be an issue.}



14 Sep 2020 17:29:21
Just a heads up to the people interested

If anyone is fed up of the piped in crowd noises and misses the atmosphere created by fans in the ground then maybe tune into to the DFB PPokal games in Germany.

The game between Dynamo Dresden and Hamburg is being livestreamed by the german football channel on youtube and some 10000 (ten thousand) fans have been allowed into the stadium



1.) 15 Sep 2020 04:22:03
Watch a far inferior product just because a bit of sound annoys you? Yeah might give that a miss thanks.



01 Feb 2017 17:45:10
Hello ed2

Sorry to borher you but seen a report on the internet so thought to ask you on these players.

Firstly, is Romero likely to leave? If yes which sidees are interested? Read Boca juniors are interested.

Secondly Is Manolas likely to leave and are we really interested? On the article I read it said we and Arsenal are seriously intersted.



{Ed002's Note - Sergio Romero might look to leave in the summer but it may depend on what happens with De Gea. Boca wanted a loan but he had no interest in that - if he moves he will look to move back to Italy.

Yes Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Manolas but it is Inter who will push very hard for a deal in the summer.}

1.) 02 Feb 2017 11:42:08
Ed2 are we looking at any keepers then as there seems to be a chance of one of pur keepers to be leaving or is J. Pereira likely to be considered as good enough prosprect ( I know we still have Johnstone but will he make it here) .

Also ed on the sharkopod you said Rojo is still considered as not dependable and it will be tough for Jones to make it past the summer window as a Utd player. So, has the opinion on them changed with their recent form or still the same? Also who is our primary cb target now as Gimenez is unlikely (or impossible)?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Manchester United will be trrying to understand where they are with goalkeepers going forward. They will look to hold on to De Gea but Romero will want to move for game time. (b) Manchester United will look for a different first choice centre back in the summer so Rojo and Jones will slide down the list and possibly out. (c) Lindelof remains very much the wanted player.}

2.) 03 Feb 2017 04:46:45
Thank you Ed

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 04 Feb 2017 15:07:16
Thanks ed.

I have seen fresh rumours stating that :

ken is still saying "they didn't offer him (Klopp
) the job. "




08 Nov 2020 14:04:20
Just a heads up lads if anyone is interested our boy Amad Traore is on the bench for Atalanta against Inter today.
Might get a few minutes or might not but still if anyone is free might be worth keeping an eye on.


1.) 08 Nov 2020 15:50:25
He has been an unsused sub for the past 5 games.

2.) 09 Nov 2020 09:50:25
I doubt he will get too much game time for Atalanta this season. He was threating to breakthrough last season and got a few minutes. However, Atalanta were preparing to send him out on loan to Parma before we swooped in. So they clearly didn't have a plan to use him in their team this season. As it is, he will sign for us in January, which also gives Atalanta very little motivation to play him when he will be leaving permanently in a couple of months.

If he gets any first team game time I would imagine it will be a few minutes at the end of a game, maybe in the last game before he leaves to give him a farewell if they are feeling sentimental.



26 Sep 2020 19:26:56
Why was the Abraham goal to make it 3_3 not chalked off for a handball by Havertz? I was under the impression if the ball hit the hand of an attacker in the build up to a goal it was given as handball. Did the rule change for this season Ed's?


{Ed001's Note - the rule did change but I am not sure anyone is quite sure what is handball and what isn't right now.}

1.) 26 Sep 2020 19:45:09
Ed001 I don’t think anybody knows the rules regards handball any more. 3 weeks in and we’ve seen some very dodgy decisions.

{Ed001's Note - exactly, I mean the Everton game there was one where an Everton player played volleyball with it and it wasn't given even after a VAR review, yet an other one was. I can't get my head round it now.}

2.) 26 Sep 2020 19:46:18
But that is still a handball right? The commentators were saying= that should+ have been given as handball and one of the comments Taylor was ex Chelsea player. Also they mentioned if it happened to a defender that would be given as pen.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, it is supposed to be.}

3.) 26 Sep 2020 19:51:05
Ed the handball law is now an absolute joke imo. The penalty Everton got today was ridiculous.

{Ed001's Note - they have been happening every game. It was the same last season though, you benefitted in one game I remember when an almost identical decision was given in your favour but not at the other end. The officials are clearly unsure as well. All the changes have done for this season is made it worse. I think every team has had either one against or for them already this season, it certainly feels that way.}

4.) 26 Sep 2020 20:19:36
Even though it is the rules, I'm sure even the refs must think it's a joke. Dermot Gallagher's defence of it the other day was, "you cannot argue it's not consistent". Which seems like code for I know it's hopeless, however, it's hopeless for everyone. I'd argue it's also easier to enforce these decisions with no fans in the ground.

It'll be a shame when later in the season a cup exit, relegation etc is confirmed by a penalty won by the opponent flicking a ball from 3ft away onto someone's hand.

5.) 26 Sep 2020 20:37:32
The way its going, instead of C.V. sending lower leagues to the wall, maybe all this VAR and handball nonsense, along with all the screaming and diving, might push people into watching proper football at a lower level but with more reality. When restrictions lift obviously.

6.) 26 Sep 2020 20:56:52
Consistent? I’m still not over the decision against Lindelof last week, followed by a more obvious decision in the arsenal game, not 2 hours later, which wasn’t given.

It’s hilarious watching ex referees try to justify it.

7.) 26 Sep 2020 22:56:55
It's insane, if a defender had of done that today the ref would of give a penalty.

8.) 26 Sep 2020 22:41:21
Ed the consistency indeed is shocking. I also don’t think refs should be allowed to watch in slow motion. Everything looks worse in slow motion.

9.) 27 Sep 2020 04:16:22
I think the issue is we have tried to introduce VAR with scientific method. So every decision must be a point of fact, no sporting judgement or experience from the referee seems to be allowed.

So we get these ridiculous rule changes that say if the ball touched your arm in any way in lead up to goal the disallowed. This is a major rule change from the previous 100 years plus of football, but was applied to make VAR easier.

Now it seems if the ball touches a defenders arm in anyway in the area it is a pen. Again, crazy change to rule in an attempt to make VAR work better.

Look at de gea's disallowed pen save for foot not touching line. No official would have called that for running out from line. It must have been 1mm, it is getting to the point that it runs the game.

Of course it swings both ways. Of course we benefit from decisions and lose decisions. But I'm not sure football was so broken before.



26 Sep 2020 14:54:48
Guys if anyone is wondering why Sancho hasn't tried to force his way out of Dortmund just search Alicia Schmidt, Dortmund's fitness coach.

I am sure he prefers working with her than Ole lol.


1.) 26 Sep 2020 15:38:12
Ole. isn't the fitness coach.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 16:10:25

More like Ole is EVEN a fitness coach.

3.) 26 Sep 2020 17:22:34



19 Sep 2020 15:38:55
How was that a penalty?
Leeds have been hard done by there. Even Bryan didn't appeal. Koch clearly pulled his leg out right before contact. The Fulham players also thought it was a corner.

Where is VAR?

That is one of the most absurd and idiotic thing I have ever read. Grealish maybe better than what I think of him but he is nowhere near Jordan Henderson. Maybe JG might have more natural talent but Henderson's mindset is above most professionals let alone a flawed person off the field like JG.

Better late then never Ed001

As discussed on the pod a few weeks ago, making subs slows the game and allows the teams to get a breather which can help the weaker sides hold on. The Top teams will always have the advantage in terms of quality no matter what the number of subs allowed is.


{Ed001's Note - I was trying to think where this conversation had taken place before, you are right we did discuss it on one of the pods.}
