Some interesting details reported on US sports news last night regarding Manchester United. They have player targets that they are seeking to secure, albeit some may only be able to join at the end of the season. The interesting bit is, that these targets have, allegedly, been looked at following recommendations, advice. given by Pochettino? Does this mean MUFC are selecting players that Poch wants with a view to him coming in the summer?

I have seen this elsewhere and don't post it as my own info but find it intriguing given that, again allegedly, Poch stands to forfiet £12.5m of his settlement from Spurs should he sign for a club this season.

To reiterate I post this 'info' from elsewhere simply to invite discussion/ observations and thoughts. I will also post as a new thread in case this gets lost to the next page already.

1.) 08 Jan 2020 15:05:47
Hope it's TRUE. Sick of Ole trying to run his team in the same mould as Fergie did. Those days have gone now I'm afraid, Players are more technical now . And the most upsetting thing for me with Ole is, He always looks to Fergie in the crowd as if to say how was that boss for a performance. He's the manager not fergie. get Poch in.

2.) 08 Jan 2020 21:01:28
First he surprised us
Then he disappointed us
Then he humiliate us
Now he is destroying us
All this because he scored one goal.

3.) 08 Jan 2020 23:35:18
Frenchman regardless of what you think of ole he is doing his best working under complete amateurs. I’m not saying he’s great or anything like that. But people need to open their eyes and realise nothing changes until there’s a major restructure and we start acting like a proper football club.
Ole like every other manager is the scapegoat for our failings off the pitch.

4.) 08 Jan 2020 23:59:47
caolan do you suffer with bipolar. you are defending him one moment and tearing him another one on a different post.

5.) 09 Jan 2020 00:31:48
Would love to believe that there has been a plan put in place to bring in a DOF in and Poch as manager at end of season no matter what happens with Ole and that he is informed of this and being respectfully treated etc etc however sadly the chances of that being the case are very very slim.

6.) 09 Jan 2020 03:32:18
Caolan, the season before Ole took over we finished second behind a record breaking City and finalists in the FA cup, won Europa and Carabao cups a season before that. In what dictionary is that called failing?

7.) 09 Jan 2020 05:00:27

1 goal? Do you remember his career for the club? The disrespect shown to him is disappointing, he’s struggling just like the 3 managers before him but his playing career was more than one goal in the Nou Camp, he was an unbelievable striker.

8.) 09 Jan 2020 06:50:28
The easiest thing is to show the door to Ole. Why? United doesn't have midfielders, attackers need good passes, defenders need protection to be calm when defending and when we play from defence. Ole signed 2 defenders and 1 attacker, they are not doing badly. Let him sign 3 midfielders and another striker, then we can judge him for f*ck sake.

9.) 09 Jan 2020 10:02:29
Seriously WTF is wrong with you whiney sods!

Ole made it clear - He is rebuilding from the bottom up and it is an ongoing project.

You lot talk about him as though he is doing a terrible job. Look at the players he has, at the players he has to do the job without due to injuries.

The squad has been neglected for years with stupid" need right now! " players who are brought in on the short term stupid wages and ultimately fell out with the manager we had at the time.

The club lost it's identity completely - on and off the pitch. Players had no connection to the club. Here just for the wage not for the love of the club and fans.

I get most players are mercenaries however i would take a mercenary who wants to be adored by the fans regardless of the club they play for over one who is there just to pick up a wage and appear to be making an effort.

So far Ole has brought back some identity on the pitch, the club feels in a better place despite not always getting the results we want.

The signings made under Ole have been good value and are well above average.

Some one above said we cannot play like we did under SAF as players are "More Technical". Sorry don't get it.

You can play as we did previously so long as you have the ability breakdown sides when they don't allow for a counter attacking play. Pretty sure we had that under SAF as we did not always play using counter attack as our only style of play.

If you mean to say it is more difficult to do so then of course however that doesn't mean we cannot have our own "more technical" players finding alternative routes to getting the goals we need.

Every club has gone through a period of rebuild. If we want success we must do it right not "Right now! "

The constant manager merry go round is a joke.

We committed to a rebuild - it's going ok for now and we are seeing progress on the pitch and behind the scenes.

As long as things continue in the right direction then sit back take the hits and enjoy the wins.

P. s Signings are key. We should have a good mix of young talent and experienced 27+ players to provide wisdom and stability.

Oh and Artur Vidal. HELL NO! Very bad influence. Not the kind of player we want at the club. agression on the pitch yeah but the guy is reckless.

Mario Gotze, Eriksen, Kroos etc yes


10.) 09 Jan 2020 10:15:51
An unbelievable striker who was never first choice gds2. How's YOUR memory?

11.) 09 Jan 2020 16:38:18
He scored 91 goals in 235 games for the club, practically a reserve 😂.

12.) 09 Jan 2020 18:18:35
Definitely a reserve. Good in the box- not so good outside. Surrounded by great players who created so many chances. Behind Yorke, Cole and Sherringham on ability. Good sub. Never "outstanding. "

13.) 09 Jan 2020 19:30:19

I’ll assume this is a joke.

14.) 10 Jan 2020 08:45:51
Assume what you like. Denis Law was outstanding. Van Nistelroy was outstanding. Oli was not. He was good. How would you rate Yorke and Cole.

{Ed047's Note - Theo Walcott, 120 odd goals in 290 odd appearances, an outstanding player! 🤦‍♂️😂

15.) 10 Jan 2020 09:18:28
Exactly Ed47.



02 Aug 2019 15:21:18
Being reported by The Telegraph that Maguire to United done at £85M. I will wait for the usual naff pictures of contract signing before believing a word of it.

1.) 02 Aug 2019 15:33:02
Craig norwood has confirmed as well. let's wait and see.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 15:34:04
Defence sorted but midfield still woeful, a pogba injury and we are in a pickle fernandes is essential.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 15:35:38
Maguire deal confirmed by other journos. Transfer fee is steep. hopefully he ll be able to handle the pressure.
I can see the knives out as soon as he makes the first mistake.

4.) 02 Aug 2019 15:40:19
jaimej79 does every positive have to be followed by a negative? Dear me one target in and all you.

5.) 02 Aug 2019 15:40:42
Jesus Jaime, it must be exhausting living so relentlessly under grey skies.

6.) 02 Aug 2019 15:49:47
Well done for quickly finding a negative Jaime.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 15:51:29
80 according to the BBC.

8.) 02 Aug 2019 15:52:21
At least we have bought a defender. even if it is Harry McGuire.

9.) 02 Aug 2019 15:57:27
Jaime, I think you're going to be disappointed mate. Woodward has shifted his attention away from Bruno because Dybala is flashing a big of thigh.

10.) 02 Aug 2019 15:59:56
Obviously United were just waiting on the results of Maguire's 17th medical of the summer before confirming it.

11.) 02 Aug 2019 16:04:28

McTominay has been brilliant in pre season so woeful is a bit harsh, hopefully Fred will improve but I do think we are in need of another 1 or 2 in there to improve us.

12.) 02 Aug 2019 16:26:53
I hope United haven't wasted too much time on the Lukaku/ Dybala swap deal. Our priority should always have been Maguire and Fernandes. Maguire looks likely though. In the event of missing out on Fernandes, we need Fred to step up big-time with assists and goals alongside Pogba. It is shocking how less we mention Sanchez now. Maybe he can reinvent himself as a 10. Can't wait for the football to start.

13.) 02 Aug 2019 16:57:04
Jaime is only a teenager lads. Go easy.

14.) 02 Aug 2019 17:46:59
In terms of attacking flare we have Chong and Greenwood not to mention Gomes.

Fernandes would be great don't get me wrong but as it stands we have had a good transfer window.

15.) 02 Aug 2019 17:53:27
We probably paid 20 million to much for both AWB and McGuire.
But its players we needed.
Hopefully Bruno is next, don't want to be wasting precious days chasing Dybala. If dybala did come than great.
But I feel bruno will give us whole new attacking dimension
We should be spending the next few days shipping out the deadwood
. young smalling, jones, fred, lukaku.

16.) 02 Aug 2019 18:08:20
Who cares what we’ve paid. Will both players improve our defence massively? Yes. Are they going to walk into our starting. 11? Yes. Is Dybala and improvement on lukaku to play right side forward? 10000000% yes.

Our team is taking shape - the jigsaw was never going to be completed in one window but it’s a bloody good start to suit how OGS wants us to play. I am delighted.

17.) 02 Aug 2019 18:53:09
Well said Eric, why people talk about the money like its theirs is beyond me. Have season tickets gone up? No! Yes, we'll pay more because other clubs know we need these players but it's more important at this stage to get the correct players signed. I worry about the guys conducting deals, much like other posters, but our jobs as fans is to sing every match day. Cliche I know but we need to get behind the boys, not the numptys upstairs.

18.) 02 Aug 2019 21:41:38
It's my money Rich_1982.When I'm buying man utd kits every year. Buying season tickets for last 30 years. buying man utd beer and man utd crisps. All of which I hasten to add goes into buying players. so when I say we paid 20 million to much for AWB and Maguire. I have a right to say so.

19.) 02 Aug 2019 22:42:36

I think I remember reading a post of ED002 whereby it was stated gate money doesn't produce that much income for the club, your season ticket hasn't increased in price has it, more than inflation.

Ultimately as I have said elsewhere, you have a choice, you can continue to attend, buy the kits, crisps and whatever or you cannot and save yourself how ever much it is you spend, which probably wouldn't pay for a minute of a player's time.

I think you are forgetting how much it costs to pay those that work for the club that aren't involved in the footballing side of things.

Whinge as much you like, but you choose to go. you could easily choose not to.

20.) 03 Aug 2019 07:24:43
Rock, sounds like you buy all the kits, crisps and beer so you can say "it's my money, I can say if we pay too much". Unfortunately, both your ticket and my ticket isn't signing the players. Not an argument buddy, just the way it is. Enjoy the new season.

21.) 03 Aug 2019 09:36:13
Nonsense Rock - are you 12 or something? . I bought an iPhone, doesn’t mean their profits are my money or have a right to say how the company is run. The same applies to football.

I go to the theatre and watch a play, doesn’t mean I now have a right to tell them how to direct the play have a stake in the production.

Such naivety. None of it is our money, as soon as you hand it over the club it is theirs to do as they wish. If you disagree, don’t give it to them!



31 Jul 2019 09:11:49
Sporting have (apparently) told RTP that the rumours United have agreed a deal for Fernandes were ‘completely false’ and there has not even been an offer for the playmaker.

This has more twists than a very twisty thing lol.

1.) 31 Jul 2019 10:17:45
Wow very reliable source lol.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 10:18:17
We have been told by Ed002 that we haven't agreed a deal so nothing new, I think we will though.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 10:20:50
I'd say Dybala getting tossed into the mix has made Ed forget about Bruno. Can't see us signing both of them.

4.) 31 Jul 2019 11:11:56
TrueRedDevil. Sporting or RTP? :) )

5.) 31 Jul 2019 11:30:40
Remember that we do transfers one at a time LOL So we have two weeks to complete 3 transfers, so one will not happen
:D:D:D Joke aside, I think We'll sign the 3 of them, with Maguire and Bruno 99% sure and Dybala hanging on whether he is pushed over by Sarri.

6.) 31 Jul 2019 13:08:31
Ziko it's less than 2 weeks.

7.) 31 Jul 2019 14:39:44
Yeah, sorry, so player and a half then



25 Jul 2019 07:21:12
Just putting it out there. I'm a messenger so don't shoot me.

Bruno Fernandes is unlikely to join Manchester United this summer, . It is believed most of the speculation linking the Portugal international has been driven from his homeland, rather than Manchester.

1.) 25 Jul 2019 07:29:55
Sorry should have proof read before posting the above that this is being reported by Sly Sports News.

2.) 25 Jul 2019 07:46:47
A little disappointing if true. I think he would really improve our team. That said, a CB and RW should be the priorities.

3.) 25 Jul 2019 07:52:38
I would seriously have to ask what direction were heading in as a club if this is true anyone who knows anything about football knows we are crying out for a player like him he is quality and is only gone get better
Jurgen klopps even scared well get him,

4.) 25 Jul 2019 07:57:51
Goal and assist against the old enemy last night, get him signed up!

5.) 25 Jul 2019 08:05:32
Absolutely sickened by this hope it's not true.

6.) 25 Jul 2019 08:07:36
You would need elaborate why is CB and RW our priority we are already 2 midfielders down and the ones we have left are useless apart from Pogba
Midfield should definitely be our priority we need a COM and an AM at a minimum I would say.

7.) 25 Jul 2019 08:20:11
Why have they said all summer that we want him then? Getting more and more bent and unreliable all the time that lot are. Just take no notice and whoever signs happy days.

8.) 25 Jul 2019 08:22:13
This guy just single-handedly demolished Liverpool today! Sign him up Woodward!

9.) 25 Jul 2019 08:23:27
SSN over the last week have reported Maguire set for medical, official bid for Pepe has been put in. SMS is close to being done, the SMS deal won't affect a deal for Bruno, now Bruno isn't coming, we're looking at Alderwierald now, have interest in Erikson, we're ready to put another bid of 30 million in for Longstaff, we're considering a package for Bale and we want Dybala at the club.

Safe to say that gullible punters will be losing the rent money on their betting site.

10.) 25 Jul 2019 08:14:59
It's being reported by Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper who is with the team on tour. Disappointed to say the least if this is an accurate report.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is that the amateurs dealing with negotiations for Manchester United are expecting their arrogant bullying will lead to clubs selling on the cheap or buying at inflated prices. Clubs are simply turning to look at other options as they are wanting to prepare for the season.}

11.) 25 Jul 2019 08:34:51
SSN hardly have a great track record when it comes to accuracy of their reporting. If they did, we would have a new 25 man squad every season.

Ed002 gave a great update a couple of days ago saying the priorities look to be Maguire 1st, Fernandes 2nd then sort out Pogba, Lukaku and Sanchez.

12.) 25 Jul 2019 08:50:30
RJMAN link to hat post from Ed002 please?

13.) 25 Jul 2019 09:41:24
Not 100% sure where it is KingGiggsy but it will probably be on the banter 2 or 3 page now. If you search Ed002 you'll probably find it.

14.) 25 Jul 2019 10:34:22
Ed said there is still enough time to get the deals done.
Btw KingGiggsy is back.

15.) 25 Jul 2019 10:46:36
Why are you all losing your sh*t over something the was posted by somebody who has no inside knowledge but gets their information from Sky Sports?

Sky say we are not interested in a player therefore the club is doomed and we should all give up now. It's such an emotional response and I suggest you spent 10 minutes outside in the sun to get some Vitamin D inside of you.

Apart from the fact that we have been told on here all summer by Ed002 that there is interest and that a sufficient bid has not yet been made.
Most on here take that as we are NOT interested and the club is on the brink of collapsing.

P. A. T. I. E. N. C. E.



15 Jul 2019 08:13:49
The Sun are still suggesting that Maguire is set to undergo a Medical today re a move to MUFC. However, The Telegraph claims that we have not yet met Leicester’s valuation and are reluctant to go beyond £60m. Are The Sun simply inventing click bait or is The Telegraph wrong. Either way this is somewhat strange.

1.) 15 Jul 2019 08:28:32
I wouldn't worry about the smaller details. Everything points to him joining us so just wait for the announcement. You'll lose your mind if you believed every reporter 🤪.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 08:32:31
There’s nothing strange. Just newspapers making things up. Best to avoid them.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 08:33:55
Ed002 said down the page, He expects the deal to go ahead. (i trust him)

4.) 15 Jul 2019 08:43:34
If we get him then great. If not it's no big issue. Plenty of CB's out there. I'm hoping Bailey has an injury free season, could be a decent back line of AWB. Lindldhof . Bailey and Shaw. Decent hard working midfielder to break up the play. Striker who can hold onto the ball, Unlike Lukaku, who struggles to stop the ball bouncing of his body parts.

5.) 15 Jul 2019 08:55:47
Did Ed002 not say yesterday he expected the deal to go through? Unless he says otherwise, maguire is a Utd player in waiting.

6.) 15 Jul 2019 09:43:49
Ignore the papers and look down the page where Ed002 says “It should go ahead” more reliable than anyone else on the net.

7.) 15 Jul 2019 10:10:17
Most of the news are just click bait with twisted info.

8.) 15 Jul 2019 13:50:10
Trust the ed mate, it will get done.

So Liverpool won the league and the government are still paying people to stay off work. somewhere there is a scouser with a lamp and genie just wondering what to do with his 3rd wish. 😂.



31 May 2020 16:32:32
Saul Niguez has tweeted his intention to announce and reveal his ‘new club’ in 3 days time.

1.) 31 May 2020 21:03:14
Remember when griezman did the same thing.

2.) 01 Jun 2020 09:19:30
Probably got a new agent.



19 May 2020 16:58:24
Pochetino now free to be a manager in the EPL as of now. So, what are the thoughts here. Pull the trigger and get him to Old Trafford or stick with OGS and his staff? Discuss.

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to happen. He has had discussions with another club already and will be looking at option.}

1.) 19 May 2020 17:34:38
Oles execution has be pardoned for another season at least. It will be March next year when we're scrapping with Wolves and Arsenal for the 5th spot, people will come on here and say "give him time, he hasn't even had a full season yet"

There is not one other club in the world who would rather Ole over Poch. In fact, I would hazard a guess not one club in the top 5 European leagues would swap managers with us.

2.) 19 May 2020 17:58:23
I'd rather stick with ole. I think the patience will bear fruits. We have found a way to play the big teams, we just need to change against mid-low table teams that allow us to keep the ball.

3.) 19 May 2020 18:27:06
Your insight Ed02 is, as ever, valuable and enlightening. So you’ve capped the idea of Poch at OT but which club is he off to?

{Ed002's Note - As I said, he "will be looking at options".}

4.) 20 May 2020 08:27:33
the best bet for poch will be newcastale.

we don't deserve any manager, first sign of struggles its sack him, he ain't good enough, tatical fool, ETC. fickle.

regardless of his CV, we have improved from this time last year.

5.) 20 May 2020 08:45:10
Ed02 can you tell me which club he has had discussions with -lease?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

6.) 20 May 2020 10:17:17
Clearly. Which is why I didn’t ask the question 😂.



08 May 2020 06:51:15
Apparently italian teams report some players and staff have tested positive for the virus 19 virus on return to training.
Three players and three training staff at Fiorentina. Also four players at Sampdoria.

That's a real concern. I hope the home leagues here in the UK look to see what happens with others before restarting.

1.) 08 May 2020 07:49:03
It's all about money, football and all sports should be cancelled.

2.) 08 May 2020 09:16:15
It's a real issue should the premier league resume it any time soon.

Are players going to run the risk of getting infected if it means going back to play again?

3.) 08 May 2020 09:39:42
I think its pretty clear s will rise again when lockdown measures are restricted. The whole point of them was ease pressure on the NHS (or other health services around the world) and allow the service to build up capacity to deal with the virus.

We are going to have to learn how to live with the virus sooner or later and football is not immune to that.

4.) 08 May 2020 12:17:08
I agree with all of that DSG but in the short term (next few months) with all that we know/ don't know, I'm not sure that footballers are going to be willing to risk returning with the possibility of catching it.

Until levels have significantly dropped, I can't see how football will return.

5.) 08 May 2020 12:41:54
Its a fair point angelred and obviously the importance of football pales into comparison to the wider issues caused by this virus.

I was more taking exception with the notion that s increasing is a shock as countries around the world start to ease lockdown restrictions.

6.) 08 May 2020 13:01:58
I think players will, lot of people still going to work everyday.

7.) 08 May 2020 14:56:34
For me the greater issue is why should footballers receive multiple tests when front line NHS and care home workers aren't able to be tested.

The citizens of the country need to be safe and well looked after long before we start to think about being able to get a sport back being played.

People talk about the financial impact on football, yet football is one of the few industries in a relatively strong position. Jaguar Land Rover for example have seen a 97% drop in turnover over the past two months. Can the motor vehicle industry survive that? Or the high street shops that will never reopen, Debenhams have gone into administration. Or Airlines like Virgin Atlantic that are reducing their staff by a third.

All is these companies and industries struggling or going bust will make thousands if not millions of people unemployed in a climate where there will be a job shortage, with bills to pay and mouths to feed.

Football really is the last thing that needs to be a priority.

8.) 08 May 2020 15:27:43
There won’t be crowds, so it won’t benefit lower division teams in any way.

Players won’t have their head in the right place.

A couple of s will derail the whole thing.

As Shappy said, football should not be a priority now. Suspend the season until it’s safe to play games in front of the fans.

9.) 08 May 2020 15:59:12
It may not be safe to play infront of fans next season.
Looks like the germans will be starting up soon I will be amazed if English footy doesn't start behind closed doors .
Golf, horse racing and tennis all lined up to start, I think sport will be good for the morale of the country .
As for players not having there heads in the right place if I'm honest I have a lot more sympathy for doctors nurses, bin men shop assistant etc etc who have continued to work and keep the country going.

10.) 08 May 2020 16:21:28
Its a tough one and should be a personal decision.
Yes there is loads of people still working but they should only be doing so within the social distance guidelines. Footballers can't follow those guidelines during their work.
Sport is nothing without fans imo.
Can you imagine the crowds gathering at whatever stadium Liverpool clinch the title? It will be impossible to control. That's not a dog at Liverpool fans it would be the same for a club avoiding relegation or winning a cl place.
It is a dilema because even watching it on tv would give some a boost. Plus it would be great to get the season finished.
If pool win it with 6 games to spare will they play squad players to protect their stars? Same with city?
Its a big mess.
Lots of clubs will be unhappy no matter what is decided.

11.) 08 May 2020 16:41:13
Much bigger question that shappy. I think money has a lot of to do with it.

Jerd, sure, a lot of people are going back to work, most because they have to and have no choice. The majority of the nation is 1 or 2 paychecks away from oblivion. But millionaire footballers? Not sure we can compare us mere mortals with those who can afford not to go back to work at this moment in time.

Footballers looking on at other countries who are going back to play football and contracting the virus might be thinking twice right now.

Germany have had a fantastic handle on this virus and it's the reason why they are able to go back to some form of normality. But the UK having one of the highest if not the highest death rate in Europe are some way off football I believe.

And to add on top of that, I echo shappy's last line. Football really is not a priority at this moment.

12.) 08 May 2020 16:41:53
It will start up imo be a long time before fans are in the stadium tho.

13.) 08 May 2020 17:17:42
Angel I belive there is far more to it than any one on this site full understands .
I'm not really going to get in to death rates, chances of players contracting it in an outside environment.
There are far clever more informaned people than me you and shappy .
I'm sure footy will return when it is deemed safe to do so. Personally I think it will be sooner rather than later although I can't see people in stadiums for a while .

On shappys last line, I don't think football is a priority, it will return when its deemed safe to do so.

should also add i coach a team myself and players can't wait to get the go ahead to get back.

15.) 08 May 2020 18:06:52
It's about striking that fine balance. I have no doubt that if/ when football resumes it will be done in a safe manner. There is no way the footballing authorities will risk anyone's health.

However, what will be far trickier is striking the balance between PR and financial gain. On one side the money will always be a key consideration, especially with many teams struggling financially. However, footballs income is dependent on two things, sponsorship and the public buying tickets or subscriptions to watch it. Both require a good public image.

Footballers getting multiple tests while nurses and their families die because they can't get tested will impact footballs income. It is not something sponsors will be happy to be associated with. Likewise the issues with social distancing. While the danger football could pose to the general public needs to be considered. If fans are going to congregate outside stadiums or other venues then that needs to be factored in.

Football will return, just when and how is the real question. But first there are more important things to deal with. People are dying, people are losing their jobs, their homes and their security, children are losing their education, families are unable to see each other, people's mental health is being impacted and in some cases they are being put in danger.

Let's not worry too much about when 22 men can kick a bag of air around a field for an hour and half will return.

Not sure you're understanding the points I'm making jerd. I'm not claiming to be informed or well versed in matters relating to the C.V. But I think, at this stage, there is very little arguing the fact that the country has a very high death rate. The numbers are there to be seen.

Given those figures, the way other countries are handling it and the caution at which they approach certain areas, it's only my opinion that it will take a little bit more time than people hope.

That's lovely to know that people are raring to play football again, I know that too as many just want to get back to some normality and football offers that to a lot of people.

But I feel that professional players will be a bit more cautious especially if players in other countries are contracting the virus. Can't do any social distancing in this game.

17.) 08 May 2020 18:50:23
I think it was Aguero who was stating the other day that the majority of players are scared to back because of their family.

18.) 08 May 2020 19:04:25
Angelred it will all come out in the wash I'm sure but there is a lot 2 it . Germany have said they only count people who have died directly from C.V. UK counts anyone who had the virus even if not the primary course . But that's getting of the point.

I don't think anyone has said footy will start tomorrow, but it will when it is deemed safe . Not sure what the problem is .
The wife is actually a nurse I have a lot more sympathy for her working in the environment she has been over the past couple of month that a millionaire football player who doesn't fancy it.
If the government says it is safe for footballers to return to work then I think they should, nurses and plenty of others don't have the luxury to say no .

Footy will return when it is safe to fo so .
I don't think footballers income will be affect because they get tested.

19.) 08 May 2020 20:27:51
Dont agree with much that Shappy says but completely agree here. Football is a luxury, that is all. Something to keep us entertained at. How many people are going to put stress on the NHS due to football starting again? If it anything above 0 then it shouldn't be started in my opinion, not so people can have some sort of entertainment. I'm missing it as much as the next guy but waiting a bit longer will make it all the more sweeter when it finally comes round again.

20.) 08 May 2020 20:51:04
Hats off to your wife and all her colleagues Jred.

21.) 08 May 2020 23:24:50
Hats off to a lot of people, I think if there is a positive to this, people might start to appreciate each other. Not sure what its like your end but people have really pulled together here, long may it continue.

22.) 09 May 2020 08:57:15
The UK possesses the highest death figure by C.V. in Europe. Let that sink in for a moment.
It's difficult to understand football being a point of discussion at the moment.

23.) 09 May 2020 12:35:52
Completely agree Scooby.

Essential workers being placed at risk is one thing. This work is fundamental to our health, safety and wellbeing.

Playing football is not essential work. Nobody will suffer if they don’t get to kick a ball around the park twice a week for a few months. Players, regardless of their obscene wages, should not be forced to put their families at risk. It’s a contact sport, and there is no way to protect players and support staff at present.

24.) 09 May 2020 15:31:29
Same over here jred. A whole new sense off community spirit and tolerance. Like everywhere you have people who are not so good but a bit like the smoking ban in pubs when it came you have 90% of people effectively policing the the other 10 so most are doing the right thing as flaunting rules is frowned upon by so many.
Help each other and those that can't help themselves during this virus is the new norm and long may it continue when the virus is passed.

25.) 09 May 2020 15:41:29
Completely agree hopefully so good can come of it.

26.) 10 May 2020 01:36:42
We do agree on some things. That said i'm not sure my tolerance for martial will imorove 😂😂
I know you say hats off to a lot of people but nurses doctors and care staff in particular deserve our utmost respect and thanks because they are saving so many lives in the face of a tsunami of challenge. Selflessly. At times like these Tyne peace nursing is a vocation not a career rings very true. I've been availing of their care 1st hand recently so they do reserve special praise in my book, and yes along with many others.

Sancho to United. Bellingham also to United but loaned to Dortmund to continue his development for a couple of seasons and sweeten the Sancho deal.
Well this is a rumours page. Any mileage in this do the Ed’s think?

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not possible.}

1.) 21 Apr 2020 17:48:33
Why would bellingham want to do that?

He could just move to dortmund and follow a similar career path to sancho.

{Ed002's Note - He is not allowed to be loaned out.}

2.) 21 Apr 2020 20:07:36
Dortmund are pretty well stacked in his position. Normally it would be a no brainer joining them but he may find it tough getting into their first team.

Mapping out a route into our first team for talented kids isn't our forte though.

Could the purchasing team leave him at Birmingham for an extra year? Is it just ourselves and Dortmund in for the kid ed?

{Ed002's Note - It would be possible to do that.}

3.) 22 Apr 2020 00:17:23
Any updates on united going for sancho and/ or bellingham ed?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing happened overnight.}

4.) 22 Apr 2020 09:03:13
Ed02. Thanks for the reply. I was unaware he couldn't be loaned out. Could you explain why please?

{Ed002's Note - He is a 16 year old child.}

5.) 22 Apr 2020 11:09:33
Thanks. Fair enough.

Indeed Ed047. This isn't the new years honour list. It's a sporting contest that has to be won and not just 'deserved'. Do you think for one moment the scallies wouldn't be all over this if it were us in their present position? The Kop songwriters would be burning the midnight oil composing for next season. Just as will the United and Everton songwriters if LFC are 'awarded' the title because they 'deserve' it. Not bitter. It's life. 😉🤣.

{Ed047's Note - I know Scooby, it all makes for interesting reading on the relevant pages right now. Mighty Reds will never live it down bless him. 🤦‍♂️

I’d be the same with the Spuds! In fact, that they have lumbered themselves with Mourinho is an absolute delight 🤣🤣

Premier league will be cancelled until the start of next season. All results, promotion and relegation will be null and void. The best 12 pictures of Liverpool fans, taken after hearing this news, will be made into a calendar and sold off for charity. 😂😂😂😂.

{Ed047's Note - yeah that would be hilarious 🤦‍♂️
