Can I ask Ed002, most talk is about getting the season done by June 30th and 1st June start date being mooted in various quarters, what will happen to FA Cup, EL and CL games that are left, will they be allowed to complete aswell as the league season, surely would be unfair to just compete league games. United for example have 17 or 18 games left potentially if we go all the way in the 2 cup comps we are in?

{Ed002's Note - The Premier League and FA Cup are planned to be completed if and when the remainder of the season can get underway. If the season does not get underway, the FA Cup will be scratched.

The CL and EL are a very different issue. UEFA are obviously keen to hold them and have a plan to play the EL semi-finals and final over a single weekend or a couple of days in Gdansk and the CL semi-finals and final on a similar basis in Istanbul. In all probability they will need to draw a line across and scratch the competitions for this season - but right now they are not doing that. I can't see them going ahead.}

Thank you Ed, very informative. So there is a scenario where the premier league carries on and Europe does not or do you see all competitions domestic and otherwise scratched?

{Ed002's Note - I really can't say with any confidence but doubt that the PL will be in a position to carry on in the near term, and I suspect the same will be true for most of Europe.}

2.) 22 Mar 2020 13:52:49
Thank you Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Seaosk suspended until April 30th 'at the earliest'. Even if cases of COVID dropped in say May time its cramming so much in to a short period up to June 30th.

1.) 19 Mar 2020 16:36:15
Apologies for my spelling, I was obviously super keen to break the news.

2.) 20 Mar 2020 12:12:56
WRD, at this point seriously don't care about football or any other sport. All such activities must be stopped indefinitely till each person is cured and there is no danger of spreading it further.

Hope everyone is safe from this site.

3.) 20 Mar 2020 17:44:44
Kicked the cab down the road.

League is getting cancelled 100% things are a lot worse than anyone first feared and my WFH is expected to June as min and I cannot see the games getting played between Apr 30 - Jun 30 for EPL and Europe games, then a delay to next season too to allow for a rest period and preseason. I can’t see a way it is happening.

Jun 30th is also when contracts and sponsorships usually change/ break.

They will wait until the last minute and null and void the season. New season in August as usual. If they do it sooner there will be a huge stink and with nothing to talk about it will be big news, waiting until the last minute means there will be a stink but press will quickly move on to cover transfers and the new season.

Only possible outcome and most sensible.

4.) 21 Mar 2020 11:00:59
I agree peoples health more important than our fight for 4th or anything else to do with any sport for that matter. I also agree I can't see the league resuming in time without disruption to next season. I have bought a ps4 and fifa 20 to get thru my social distancing, can take United to the top that way.

5.) 21 Mar 2020 22:13:05
Global pandemic guys. We can’t even go out for a beer or bite to eat. Football is done for a while.



12 Feb 2020 07:49:49
1 week and no new rumours post on the rumours page. I hear a rumour which is more a report that United have put in for safe standing at OT can you can confirm this rumour Ed's?

{Ed001's Note - it was done in December. It is a trial in the north-east corner for up to 1,500 rail seats.}

1.) 12 Feb 2020 17:24:33
What do you make of it Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - it is not to my liking, but the rail seats are the best solution to persistent standing. Problem is people look at it through eyes tinged with nostalgia and forget how crap standing actually is for the majority. If you are short you can't see anything, which makes it crap for kids. If you are a woman, you have to put up with pervie men rubbing up against you and touching you, as you can't see which knobber done it. It is difficult to get in or out, etc. All they really need to do is allow people to move around to sit with friends etc to improve the atmosphere that people moan about. However that is not going to fix the poor atmosphere and neither is standing because times have changed and people are not the same as they were. The atmosphere will never be like it was.

Like I said though, the rail seats is a decent halfway house to put in places where people insist on standing.}

2.) 13 Feb 2020 09:14:34
Cheers for the in depth reply Ed. Interesting take on it. I mainly go to games at FC United and Chester and am used to standing so when I go to OT and sit I find it almost like sit back and entertain me or not as fan involved but that's just what I am used too. Can understand it not being bear for other fans who are used to and like sitting to watch but nice United have gone half way on it.

{Ed001's Note - I am used to standing as well, but it excludes over 50% of the population.}



28 Jan 2020 22:35:49
Apparently some United fans gone militant on Ed's home.

1.) 28 Jan 2020 22:41:59
A million miles too far


2.) 28 Jan 2020 22:57:55
I heard it was Ed002 and Ken.

3.) 28 Jan 2020 23:02:31
Absolutely disgusting a disgrace we are united not hooligans.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 23:21:25
Absolute morons, whether people like the guy or not he is a human being and does not deserve this. This minority of so called fans have taken the toxicity to a new level.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 23:29:01
Ed002 and Ken would be like a Seal Team 6 Infiltration.

6.) 28 Jan 2020 23:35:47
Tongue n cheek comment

But that's the only bit of news coming out of man utd that's true and something was bound to flare up.

I bet EW is already working on sponsors for flares

On a real note. disgusting behaviour by a Toxic minority of imbeciles.

7.) 28 Jan 2020 23:40:03
There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour. Whatever people think of how someone does his or her job, you don’t attack them or their family home. It’s embarrassing for grown adults to be doing this. I am embarrassed by this. I hope they are prosecuted.

8.) 28 Jan 2020 23:51:53
No laughing matter at all Griffin. Shamed the club. This is football. It should NEVER be personalised beyond voicing opinion.

9.) 29 Jan 2020 00:00:12
Absolutely disgraceful I hope they find who did it and send them to jail and ban them from every football ground. Sky and BT should cancel any sports subscriptions they have too. Being passionate is fine but never like this.

10.) 29 Jan 2020 00:07:29
Absolutely disgusting.

11.) 29 Jan 2020 00:51:24
Awful news about Eds home getting attacked. I just post similar on the other page.

12.) 29 Jan 2020 02:20:09
For what it’s worth I’m not condoning this behaviour Cheshire. It’s beyond disgusting.

13.) 29 Jan 2020 02:24:49
This is simply disgusting behaviour. These knuckle draggers are representing us. We must stand together to condemn this abhorrent behaviour. Imagine if Ed's family had been there alone.

This stems and escalates from the singing of the songs in the ground. I hope people realise how this poison needs to be stopped, whether it is songs aimed at Liverpool, or Glazers or Woodward there are lines that should not be crossed. The acceptance of the singing in the grounds leads to idiots like these thinking it is funny or amusing to threaten death and cause violence.

14.) 29 Jan 2020 02:52:52
I hope they are found and punished accordingly.

15.) 29 Jan 2020 04:20:02
Totally unacceptable from those fans.
Woodward's family may get mentally traumatized from these kind of inhuman behaviors.

16.) 29 Jan 2020 07:05:01
Absolute morons. This is the reason why Ed002 won't explain who is doing what at United at board level.

Ed Woodward doesn't have a lot of love amoungst the United fan base, but attacking his home is the lowest of the low. That is his family home, his wife and kids live there.

By all means sing chants at games (not death threats though, or wishing someone dead), have a march, unfurl banners and demonstrate against the man if you're unhappy and blame him. But don't commit criminal acts, and don't involve his family. That's simply disgusting.

{Ed025's Note - your spot on shappy, that was disgusting mate..

17.) 29 Jan 2020 07:54:19
Obviously those people are not representative of United fans. Every fanbase sadly has its rotten apples.

Disgusting stuff indeed, and luckily the Woodward family wasn't home (if I recall correctly) . Hopefully they'll be able to deal with this from a psychological point of view and move on.

18.) 29 Jan 2020 08:34:47
I doubt there's one amongst us who doesn't want him out of the club, or at least his current all-encompassing role, but this type of behaviour can never be condoned.

Sadly, this is a reflection on the way things have gone in Britain over recent years, with the toxicity and personal attacks seen over Brexit (on both sides) and in politics in general. When you normalise this kind of behaviour in politics, it's inevitable that the thugs will feel like they can do it in other areas too.

19.) 29 Jan 2020 09:47:53
Not guilty and appalled by it all.

20.) 29 Jan 2020 09:58:02
Totally appalling and if they do want rid of him then its the worst thing they could have done. The club, board, owners, media and pundits will all rally round him now (as they should) . Some people never think they just act like complete morons.

21.) 29 Jan 2020 12:40:19
What was the sun reporter doing there should be the real question. Who invited him and why was he filming and nobody cared?

22.) 29 Jan 2020 12:50:11
I’m throwing this out there.

I’m calling Fake News here’s why:

1. No body home gone 8pm on weekday. No kids, no dogs, no family. very lucky coincidence.
2. Timed to coincided with press briefing we are about to land Bruno
3. Comments in newspapers how Woodward closed Bruno and was personally leading.
4. Employed an ex Sun journo to lead PR and to sort out Woodward’s image.
5. Press cover the bonfire chant despite it being sang for years.
6. Sun on scene of the event?
7. No damage just flares. I am from Manchester trust be there would be bricks thrown, pee in bottles. all sorts. There’s some right animals up here.

Smells like a setup to me. Just like the tweets we are seeing from sun journalists. orchestrated.

If it’s not fake they 100% knew it was happening and played to their own ends.

Hopefully this ok Ed’s but just a train of thought I’ve had. Something just doesn’t seem quite right. Maybe I have trust issues?

23.) 29 Jan 2020 13:27:33
What a totally weird post.

24.) 29 Jan 2020 13:47:36
Eric, it is odd.

I think there a quite a few coincidences with timings of briefings last night on Bruno and Ed being the hero (7pm GMT), 8PM his house gets a flare thrown the the garden and filmed by some cretinous individuals.

It also seemed relatively tame in respect to what I’ve witnessed when it comes to football hooligans.

Like it or not we’ve aligned ourselves with the Sun via Ashton. Sun have exclusive content and have video direct from the event (either sold/ passed or recorded by them) .

It doesn’t quite add up. I’m sure the police will have little problem catching one of the 20, let’s see if anyone gets charged.

On face value yes, no excuse and disgusting but I’m sure there’s more to this than meets the eye.

25.) 29 Jan 2020 13:55:47
I can't believe The United Stand have been quoted on the BBC, they are getting more and more media access it seems, which is odd considering how poor the content is.

Interesting theory Utd Road. Either way, just puts the side of football culture that I loathe to the front. People seriously need to get a life.

26.) 29 Jan 2020 14:00:53
Sorry for the my comments the other day Ed, but I guess I was proved right. I’ll keep off here from now on.

{Ed033's Note - There are a few bad apples everywhere, but a reasonable person would think that the other day, you posted that all Man United supporters are bad.

27.) 29 Jan 2020 15:15:38
I agree Utd road, Woodward wants to look a certain way and doing this will stop a lot of negative chants and work in his favour.

28.) 29 Jan 2020 16:40:43
Lerky, I really don't think you want to go down that road, fella. Not unless you happen to support the only team in the world without it's quota of cockwombles. And my brother is a Liverpool fan, so I know that's not true :)

29.) 29 Jan 2020 17:49:21
Utd Road, this website has a good conspiracy site you should check out lol.

30.) 29 Jan 2020 18:27:31
It would be abhorrent to even think the club would be involved in such a situation, my view is from what I see on social media and it makes perfect sense to me that a complete bunch of twats would brief the press and they did.

I just hope these dickheads get caught and locked up, its completely pathetic, its football .

31.) 30 Jan 2020 07:56:51
Did you see 20-30 in a single photo?
Have you seen the resolution of the photography on line? Matches perfectly to professional spec. camera.

I think it’s super fishy.



10 Jan 2020 12:00:50
Any truth Ed's to the recent news that United are after Bruno Fernandes this months/ are in talks?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is unchanged.}

1.) 10 Jan 2020 12:29:11
I struggle to see how we’re going to sign him now.

We wouldn’t go anywhere near Sporting’s valuation in the summer.
He has now signed a new contract and Sporting are in a stronger position because of that.

I think that stories are being floated to give the impression United are working on targets, rather than there being any actual intent.

2.) 10 Jan 2020 13:51:06
I agree Danny - you hope our desperation for quality in midfield means we will just pay what is needed. However, I feel like this is a briefing from the powers above as a 'statement' after the City humiliation. However, I doubt it is anything other than interest.

3.) 10 Jan 2020 14:14:27
Agree with danny also. seen this play out too many times before, although a small part of me still gets excited and hopeful.

4.) 10 Jan 2020 13:57:50
Ed, just for clarity on this, we are interested but don’t like the price, is that correct?

{Ed002's Note - As I have previously clearly stated, yes.}

5.) 10 Jan 2020 14:32:34
Thanks Ed.

6.) 10 Jan 2020 14:39:15
Thank you Ed.

7.) 10 Jan 2020 15:39:55
As I said the other day with the situation we are in we should just pay the money. The line from the club is we will spend if right players are available and will improve us. We wanted him in summer, clearly still want him so we just need to meet the asking price and get it done.

8.) 10 Jan 2020 15:52:17
Nothing will happen this window - OGS will get sacked In March and the whole scenario will be repeated. Mark my words.

9.) 10 Jan 2020 16:37:52
They (the board) are totally incompetent. Other clubs identify their player, pay what is asked and sign their man. UTD chase shadows trying to find a bargain and as we can see it doesn't work.

10.) 10 Jan 2020 17:09:57
They don't like the price but they must have liked the 80 million price for Maguire. The club is run by absolute morons.

{Ed025's Note - very rich morons though damon..

11.) 10 Jan 2020 17:34:08
The club haven’t briefed anybody, the story has come up because Ole and Phelan went to watch the Sporting v Porto match. Good news if we can get a deal done, sure some people will spin a negative out of it though.

12.) 10 Jan 2020 17:36:34
Eric spot on that

We go threw ground hog day every season.

13.) 10 Jan 2020 17:26:35
You can say that again Ed. Morons to us but not stupid one bit in their own right. Out there for themselves and not the club.

{Ed025's Note - i think you may be right damon mate..

14.) 10 Jan 2020 18:05:30
Throwing Rojo in the deal to get price down.

15.) 10 Jan 2020 18:40:08
Pretty sure that might increase the price Utd Road.

16.) 10 Jan 2020 21:42:24
These rumours seem to be gathering pace pretty fast though 🤔.

With the Belgian league deciding to end things early not seeing a game played before June 30th youd imagine other leagues will now follow suit by also ending their respective leagues.

{Ed002's Note - I would not make any such assumption.}

1.) 02 Apr 2020 22:51:57
The Belgian league had 1 game to go, its a little different.

2.) 03 Apr 2020 19:10:47
It had one game to go before a play off system and another load of games.



01 Apr 2020 11:11:51
I see that the National League, North and South are suspending their leagues indefinitely and are seeking advice and of course lower than that leagues have been expunged already, do these leagues taking decisions to cancel and indefinitely suspend have any bearing on leagues higher up Ed?

{Ed002's Note - No, aside from creating a precedent.}

1.) 01 Apr 2020 19:36:59
No European league will finish. Wimbledon cancelled today which is last week in june first week in july which again paints a scary picture. Its getting a lot worst in 3-4 weeks an i for one will not be thinking about football at all😞😞.



08 Mar 2020 19:43:55
Absolutely fabulous performance today, great attitude and desire shown all round. Bruno class, martial a good performance, matic and fred brilliant again, all the lads deserve the praise they will get. We simply wanted it more. I have to say I sensne something changing at the club, a different mentality, ighalo and Bruno have sparked something and Ole has to take enormous credit too. A few quality additions and if we can have the character we seem to have in these lads at the moment I think we will be ok.

1.) 08 Mar 2020 22:13:35
Agreed. Delighted today.



28 Feb 2020 12:31:58
LASK, that'll do.

1.) 28 Feb 2020 13:30:07
Best we could get really.

2.) 28 Feb 2020 13:48:27
Let's not start underestimating them. They are in the competition for a reason. And I'm sure they'll be fired up to play against a big club. So, let's give them the respect they deserve and try our best and hopefully, we'll go through.

3.) 28 Feb 2020 14:03:59
We shouldn't under estimate any team we play. Whilst on paper we look to have had a fortunate draw for the next round of the Europa league, they certainly won't be push overs.

4.) 28 Feb 2020 14:17:25
They won 4 out of 6 in the group and that included PSV.

5.) 28 Feb 2020 14:24:45
Dont think anyone is saying they will be a walkover, just that the draw was favorable in the current climate. short trip, avoided Italy, kept way from wolves AGAIN. Teams like Sevilla, Leverkusen are also a plus to avoid at this stage.

6.) 28 Feb 2020 16:18:43
There are no easy wins at this stage in European competition. Yet you'd take LASK over Inter, Roma or Bayer Leverkusen every day of the week.

7.) 28 Feb 2020 16:53:19
Bruno should know them they beat sporting twice in the group stage and beat psv. They are adhered of red bull in the league this year and were runners up the year before. But i'd say we go in to the match as favourites.

8.) 28 Feb 2020 17:04:42
I’m totally devastated as I put all my money on us getting Inter as someone on here said it was a dead cert 😂.

9.) 28 Feb 2020 17:05:19
Sporting beat them not too long ago and our new talisman happened to score.

With a bit of luck, he will again.

10.) 28 Feb 2020 19:53:52
Jesus UEFA assured me with a brown envelope we would get Inter.



28 Feb 2020 09:27:18
We will say ou Brugges, only 10 men but this exactly the type of opposition we have struggle against in recent years. It was not so much beating them but the manner of the performance that shows me something different and Bruno Fernandes has been immense since arriving and players are sparking off him. It's really good to see.

1.) 28 Feb 2020 10:05:19
I don't think the sending off effected the result. We could have been 3-0 before the sending off. I think we would have won fairly comfortably even if they had kept all 11 men on the pitch.

On a side note the more times you see the sending off the more bizarre it gets. I mean seriously what was he thinking. Was he a goalkeeper in a past life?

I've been suffering with Coronavirus since Friday and much like OP had 2 bad days/ nights where was boiling, shivering at night, had a little yet persistent cough and was so drowsy and fatigued, wasnt pleasant but no worse than a bad cold mainly or flu for those 2 days. I'm lucky enough to be young and healthy enough. Work have stood me to stay away until Monday as work in mental health support. Anyway hopefully if it definitely is covid 19 I've immunity now, stay healthy folks.
