Rumour has it that Vidic has been offered to coach our mufc B (U23s) . That's according to Vojvodina coach Lalatovic . He is yet to decide.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 18:49:20
Getting him ready for when Ole gets the boot.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 19:58:14
Wow, unbelievable Rock
the red.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 22:25:53
Haha mad

I'm just going on how woody sacks managers. he his a little trigger happy don't ya think.

4.) 03 Jul 2019 13:36:43
Don't suppose we could coax him back into playing. Rather have Vidic back even now than spend 70m on Maguire.



26 Jun 2019 12:11:10
BBC's David Ornstein reporting we have reached an agreement with Palace to sign AWB .


{Ed002's Note - Shows what cheapskates the owners are - should have paid another £25M for him to keep the Toxics happy.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 12:24:42
Ignoring the toxic stuff because it bores me. Good signing, as Ed001 mentioned before AWB is one of the only fullbacks in the league who seems to know stopping the cross coming in is key.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 12:31:37
Love it 002!

Some opinions on here make me think everybody has financial freedom.

Anyway, hope this is true.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 12:33:12
Finally solved a problem out squad had for several years. No more Young at RB!

4.) 26 Jun 2019 13:12:34
Brilliant deal IMO especially if the rumours about the Zaha clause are true as well, now on to the next one hopefully.

5.) 26 Jun 2019 14:00:49
Great bit of business. Very good player. 2 really good signings. Investing in the future.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 14:04:27
Yeah, but ed. Its not the glazers personal cash so it doesn't count 😂.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 15:50:46
Exciting stuff!
I echo Rosie’s words, I’m bored of the toxic nonsense. Does it even have to be mentioned? Quite frankly I find it offensive being constantly branded as a ‘toxic fan’ so perhaps the Ed (s) can avoid being hypocrites and do us all a favour and just not reference the morons at all?

{Ed002's Note - There is no hypocracy.}

8.) 26 Jun 2019 17:06:38
Great signing if completed. Just shows the shift at the club that started last summer. People forget but the signings of Fred (didn't have an exceptional season but the right idea) and Dalot along with James this summer and AWB shows what direction the club is taking with its' signings. Young and ambitious players who want to play for the club. More of the same please. It's not July yet and already two exciting signings. A centre half and two central midfielders then we're laughing. The signings from the past 12 months shows that Ed isn't in charge of what players to get and long may it last 🙌.

9.) 26 Jun 2019 18:09:13
AWB was on a flight from Biggin hill to Manchester
Let's do medical sign him move on to next transfer.



24 Jun 2019 11:20:43
We seem to have signed a 16 year old mateo mejia from R. Zaragoza.


1.) 24 Jun 2019 13:45:36
According to his local newspaper Heraldo d’Aragon, he is apparently very quick, can play left or right wing, is known as “the jewel of Zaragoza”, scored 53 goals in his last 29 games and cost us £600k.

2.) 24 Jun 2019 13:46:57
Must have been a Mourinho target.

3.) 24 Jun 2019 18:34:44
Rumours going around that lukaku may have had a change of heart. Possible he could stay after all.
If that is the case, then we are totally screwed.
Woodward does know how to screw things up big time.
Thought ole said we were getting rid of the deadwood.
Young, smalling, Jones, lukaku, lingard, Sanchez. All still getting paid by mufc. show some balls Ole, transfer the lot of them.

4.) 24 Jun 2019 19:18:44
He can’t if there’s no willing buyers.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 22:05:23
Lukaku might never hack it at top level club football but he is far from a deadwood player.

Perfectly adequate striker to get us back into the top 4 as he will get enough goals provided the chances.

If he goes, good we get a decent fee for him, if he stays, good we have a proven goalscorer at the club.

6.) 24 Jun 2019 22:28:45
If we keep Lukaku we are not "screwed". Our fans make me laugh sometimes. He’s a proven goal scorer and will finish as our top scorer if given the same minutes as our other forwards.

Thursday / Sunday for the season, we need depth and Lukaku is more than a good option with so many games to play.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 06:12:27
Some of our fans are a joke.
Right now, Lukaku is the best striker at the club.

8.) 25 Jun 2019 20:14:22
Zaragoza have come out to deny this. Any truth in the interest?



06 Jun 2019 10:07:53
Just read somewhere that PSG have made a £70 million bid for David de Gea and that DDG's agent Jorge Mendes will meet with PSG reps in Qatar later this week to negotiate a deal.


1.) 06 Jun 2019 10:38:54
We won't get anywhere near that amount for him.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 10:44:52
Just announced that buffon is leaving?

3.) 06 Jun 2019 11:02:55
70m sounds reasonable, better than letting him leave on a free next year.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 11:39:09
Romero for the year. See how he and Henderson (at Sheffield United) get on then decide next summer what to do. If neither are up to it then dip into the market for a goalkeeper who's good with the ball at their feet. Hopefully we won't need to buy one with them two. If Dave leaves then thanks for the great service. We'd be in an even worse position without you ❤.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 11:40:13
I'd snap their hands off at 70m. He is on a free next year and won't sign a new deal.

6.) 06 Jun 2019 12:10:52
agree with shappy snap there hands off for that amount,

we need to be making the defense a priority and we wouldn't need to rely on the keeper as much as we have done over the years.

7.) 06 Jun 2019 12:34:04
Anything over £50 million is good business. He might have twelve months to go but if PSG want him now then they'll have to reach a deal acceptable to us.

8.) 06 Jun 2019 17:07:46
Hazard £88million with a year left on his contract.

I'd hope to expect £60 million or around that figure.

9.) 06 Jun 2019 21:37:16
70 millions on De Gea is good pay out since they can use this money to get Oblak from AT Madrid.



09 Jan 2018 12:00:19
Does anyone here know anything about the us being linked with Leon Bailey and Lorenzo Pellegrini.
Personally have no idea of their quality. But as we all know. it's the season for tabloids to throw names and see which will stick.


{Ed002's Note - Pellegrini is of interest but Roma do not want to sell him. Another English side had a proposal rejected. Roma have a number of folks in London for a couple of days this week where Monchi will read the riot act and they will look to unload some of their surplus players to raise some money. Don't hold your breath. Leon Bailey was of interest to Chelsea when Mourinho was manager so it is possible. Again there is a not for sale flag.}

1.) 09 Jan 2018 12:54:09
Ed, I know you don’t like putting timescales on things and January is a difficult month to buy players etc, but would you say it’s more likely we will wait till summer now, rather than sign anyone this month just for the sake of it? I can’t see many of our top targets being available and we don’t seem close to any deal. Your opinion would be appreciated or any new info you’ve recently heard. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, I am sure something will happen in January if they can make it.}

2.) 09 Jan 2018 13:13:03
Thank you for the quick response Ed.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 15:08:39
Cheers Ed, much appreciated.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 04:00:18
I’m still convinced Ed002 is the head of the CIA, NSA, or MI6. Only explanation. Even Jorge mendes and pini zahavi check this site for insider info. :)

{Ed001's Note - I met Jorge Mendes once out here, the only thing he said to me was 'who is Ed002?'}

09 Sep 2019 13:44:10
Ed 001, did I miss your review for today?
Anyway I read this somewhere
"France's Euro 2020 qualifier was delayed by ten minutes when they angered opponents Albania by mistakenly playing the Andorran national anthem before kick-off. The visitors refused to start the game before the correct the anthem was played. To make matters worse, the stadium announcer then apologised to the Armenian fans before finally acknowledging Albania and playing the right anthem.

European geography clearly not a strong point for the World Cup holders. "
It sounds like something I'd read in your daily reviews.


{Ed001's Note - unfortunately that was one of very few things I had managed to get, there wasn't enough to make it worthwhile posting up, so I have just kept it aside to add to tomorrow. Monday reviews are often difficult as there is little news other than results usually, and I don't see the point in me reporting those as they are freely available everywhere.

The idea of the review is just to round up all the stuff I can find that would otherwise only get seen by having to read 50 clickbait articles. So I don't really want to add results, as they don't tend to be used in clickbait. It did mean I got a chance to finish off my And Finally review of August news though. I just have to wait for some peace and quiet to record it now as I am doing that purely as a podcast.}

1.) 09 Sep 2019 14:29:23
In that case Sorry I jumped the gun. Will look forward to the podcast and tomorrow's edition.
Thanks for the good work Ed.

{Ed001's Note - don't be sorry I could easily have missed it. Thanks mate.}



22 Aug 2019 09:21:01
Anyone know if it is true that EPL teams can sign Free Agents even with though the Transfer Window is shut?


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 22 Aug 2019 11:15:34
Claudio Marchisio (had a knee surgery) , Yohan Cabaye, Llorente, Jack Rodwell, Lewis Holtby, Kiesuke Honda, Seydou Doumbia are a few high profile Free Agents available. I would olny be interested in Llorente just to provide a different dimension to our game.

2.) 22 Aug 2019 12:33:26
Not sure there's anyone worth taking on a free but we could. Bit desperate though and would be admitting they should've got another player in the window.

3.) 22 Aug 2019 11:22:11
Thanks Ed.

4.) 22 Aug 2019 12:59:41
If Sanchez leaves, Lorente would be a good option especially as a plan B from bench.

5.) 22 Aug 2019 13:45:22
We currently have 30 players training in the first team squad.

We should only add more players if we see several leave AND they are first team quality.

I don't think any of the players available on a free transfer are first team quality. So best leave them alone.

6.) 22 Aug 2019 17:11:24
True Shappy, but more that 10 of these are defenders. I don't think 1st team quality is the yardstick in this case. Rather a plan B or C back up of sorts. But in all honesty I have not gone through the list of these available players to know if any can improve our current team.

7.) 23 Aug 2019 04:46:42
Lindelof, Maguire, Bailly, Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Tuanzebe, Shaw, AWB, Dalot, Young, Darmian.
That's 12 defenders.
Need to ship out atleast 3 from this lot.

8.) 23 Aug 2019 14:30:13
TRD. You might get done under the trade descriptions act call all them defenders😂😂.



19 Aug 2019 15:52:07
If Sanchez truly ends up at Inter Milan then that means Conte has taken both Lukaku and Alexis off our hands. Conte for utd's DOF!


1.) 19 Aug 2019 18:18:35
No! If he's that keen on them they'd end up back here. No. No. NO.



04 Aug 2019 13:12:52
To the lpool fans who attempt to troll our Maguire signing, does this stem from the fact that Harry Maguire is the reason they didn’t win the league last season; that goal of his that cost valuable points?


1.) 04 Aug 2019 13:51:04
MBD, I visit your pages out of interest regarding Lukaku and Pogba etc. I know a Liverpool fan has been here going on and on about Maguire which is all a bit silly.
Maguire is definitely going to improve your defence which was a necessity. Furthermore, transfer fees have massively escalated since Van Dijk joined Liverpool for £70 million
Maguire is regarded as a top defender in the premier league, so Leicester demanded a fee to match. There is no point comparing Van Dijk and Maguire or their fees, as the market has changed.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 14:29:35
That's well said Greenflash.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 15:20:33
I think it’s clear that Van Dijk is the better player. Probably the best cb in the world. But it cannot he underestimated the sort of impact Maguire can have on our defence. Already we look a lot stronger, albeit on paper, with AWB and Maguire. Is he worth his fee? Absolutely not. But it isn’t his fault and the market is incredibly inflated. I think it’s wrong to try and compare the two players as there are so many different factors coming into play. He most obvious one being our desperation for a cb signing. Let see how he does this season but I think he will be a brilliant addition.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 17:22:05
Is he worth the fee? That will be determined by the future. We shipped 54 goals last season. If we reduce it to 35 and score a few more, maybe 70, will he have been worth it? I think so. Value is not absolute. It's circumstantial.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 18:58:19
MBD, Liverpool fan here in peace. I am not sure what Harry Maguire had to do with us finishing second. In regards to the transfer fee did you pay over the odds, yes massively down to the fact Leicester knew you were desperate for a centre back and charged accordingly. Virgil and not with any red tinted glasses is currently in a different league to any defender in the world right now, having said that I think Maguire will improve your defence, especially along side AWB who is brilliant purchase.

6.) 04 Aug 2019 23:39:35
Park, i still can't believe that we didn't go in for VVD when he was at Celtic or Southampton.

7.) 05 Aug 2019 11:36:12
Green and Alonso, thanks for the replies. That is why i qualified the kind of lpool fans i was referring to.
Let us see how the season unfolds.



15 Jul 2019 12:06:55
Don't know if this has been mentioned here, but I saw somewhere that Moyes was interested in signing Maguire 6 years ago from Sheffield.


1.) 15 Jul 2019 14:00:38
i think he was. it was when we lost john stones to everton.

I don't know which is more frustratingly tedious, Utd's transfers procedure/ sysyem (lack of) or the 'remix' questions for the eds which are actually the same old monotonous tune.

Dias would be better and Maguire would be worse.
Ed 001 how does one get invited to one of Ed003's specials?


{Ed001's Note - you have to go through a whole qualification process, which involves signing over life savings and joining his cult, where you are only allowed to wear mandarin-coloured clothing.}

Thank you Southern Monkey for such a pleasantly put question and repeating it ever so casually as a reminder. Some of us can learn a thing or 2 from you.

Cheers bud.
U reckon Beardsley should move to Italy?
While speaking of Italy, did you come across the VAR issue where Genoa were given a 'ghost' penalty against Atalanta and VAR officials could not be reached due to a radio glitch?


{Ed001's Note - it does seem like Beardsley is suffering from the confusion between respect and racism that Italian football is struggling with! I can't believe the FA have let him off so lightly and said he is not racist. He clearly bloody is and he must know better as he played alongside Barnes when they were pelting him with bananas and making monkey chants.

I haven't heard of that one, but it doesn't surprise me that there was a 'glitch'.}

Was leaning more towards not replacing weakened areas.
On an unrelated topic, did you catch what Luciano Passirani said about Lukaku?


{Ed001's Note - good point.

Yes I did, unfortunately I didn't have time to do a review of the day as I was up till 3:30am doing a Liverpool podcast with Ed666, but I did see that. I am just wondering why he was suspended and not immediately sacked?}
