I read somewhere don't know if it's true or not that barcelona have to pay benfica 5 million for every 50 appearances semedo makes.




14 Jul 2017 14:22:01
Ed 002 if you have time, I'd like to ask you have United any interest in nainggolan?


{Ed002's Note - Roma are making significant changes this summer but he is not for sale right now.}

1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:23:36
Cheers ed.

Boys I was looking in to what is going wrong for us and I came across this.
Total shots 387 (3rd) in league.
Shots on goal 199 (2nd)
Goals 51 7th
Ratio 13.2% (17th)
Now the last one is conversion ratio. 3 teams below us Sunderland already relegated and Middlesbrough nearly gone.
There's no getting away from it we need a world class striker.


1.) 02 May 2017 08:00:06
We need shooting practice.

2.) 02 May 2017 08:16:17
I say we need both.

3.) 02 May 2017 09:01:31
We had one in Zlatan and he was getting criticised in here!

Personally don't think our mids and wide players contribute anywhere nearly enough. Mata, Martial, Miki, Lingard, Rashford all should be scoring more than they do.

{Ed004's Note - We need both! We have missed some shocking chances this year. Hopefully it will improve next season when we have a settled team. Martial, Mata, Rashford and Mkhitarian have all shown in the past that they know where the net is}

4.) 02 May 2017 09:12:07
CSM I will fully agree with you.
Papers saying we need to break bank paying Β£155m for Greaseman. I'd rather use it to buy Duvall . Of all the times this is the first time I'm hearing Hargreaves talk sense. With Β£155m we could start a nuclear war against any country gosh. It's going crazy.
We can buy so many more players to strengthen other departments. I am against spending so much for Greaseman . 😫😫.

5.) 02 May 2017 10:42:33
Well if we do get this Greaseman fellow, the United machinery would be oiled well and run perfectly.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:35:37
Good post Leahy, I suppose that puts things into perspective and I totally agree with Eric that we need a lot more from our attacking players.

Whilst our finishing has been poor I'm not sure that tells the full story!

From memory despite our struggles in front of goal we've managed to get in front against Swansea, Bournemouth, Stoke and Arsenal at OT and we've surrendered leads against Everton away, Anderlect (twice) and Rostov in the Europa.

This suggests to me that even through the stats suggests that our defence is relatively solid we also have a vulnerability at the back that needs attention.

Titles are built on clean sheets and a good Utd team should not be surrendering leads to Swansea, Bournemouth and Stoke especially at OT. If we hang on and win two of those games we'd be 4 points better off and in pole position for top 4. We've conceded last minute goals to Arsenal and Everton, if we hang on to win one of those games that's another 2 points. Title winning teams should be scoring last minute winners not conceding them and holding onto leads especially at home.

It's been an incredibly frustrating season and with better finishing and defending a so far underwhelming season could have been very different.

The unbeaten run is positive and demonstrates a degree of mental toughness and resilience. Moving forward we need to take care of the little details which make the big difference. Concentration at the back and clinical ruthlessness up front. Unfortunately it's these details that cost the money. On one hand we've very close on the other we're a million miles away, I suppose it just depends on what side of the fence you sit.

7.) 02 May 2017 11:36:06
Slippery slope boys this one.

8.) 02 May 2017 12:29:03
If we are going to spend stupid money we should be looking at dybala or lewondonski.
Or John Travolta would be a good grease man.

9.) 02 May 2017 13:07:56
Travolta's movement not quite what it used to be.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:40:45
That's what I am saying. We should not be overspending on Greaseman.
He is good but I am sure there are better buys around. Not spending so much on just one player.
I'd rather we buy others like Thomas Mooler.
Else Loowandowski is also a good buy.
Alternatively, we can buy the guy from Spurs, Cane?

11.) 02 May 2017 14:56:47
Michael Caine might be more likely.

12.) 02 May 2017 15:13:34
Travolta is fast like grease lightning.

13.) 03 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah Caine and Travolta makes a great team.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you mean couple?}

That's why you're Bond. You're absolutely right. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

{Ed007's Note - A match made in Xenu.}



01 Jul 2016 15:23:25
Ed02 are manchester united putti g through a bid for pogba, and if the fee is met do u see him moving back to manchester.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a little clearer on Tueday evening, perhaps Wednesday.}

1.) 01 Jul 2016 15:37:14
Cheers ed.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 15:59:40
Ed002, 2hats your thoughts on it? Is this a case of utd being stupid enough to pay more than anyone else, as you've previously suggested, or do you think this has the potential to be a good deal?

I may be being a but stupid, as you've said he doesn't want to come here and that RM is his preference, but I don't know how common it is for a big name player to not go straight to his preferred choice and as such the potential trouble it can cause.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your post at all. I have explained that after a meeting on Tuesday it may be clearer in terms of what will be happening. I have no idea what you are prattling on about nor what you find confusing from my very short and very simple comment.}

3.) 01 Jul 2016 16:01:57
Would you mind elaborating on the significance of Tuesday/ Wednesday?
Thanks for info updates 002.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 01 Jul 2016 16:20:11
Let be put it anither way Ed.

Previously you said this :

{Ed002's Note - The deal is simple - if MU pay way more than one would expect for the player and way, way, way, over the odds in fees, they might be able to sign a player who wants to move to Real Madrid. }

Given that comment and the fact we may now sign him, I'm asking 2 things.

1. Is this a case of utd paying way over the odds compared to what other clubs are prepared to pay?

2. How unusual is it for a big player to not get his first choice club, and how much of a problem would you expect that to cause when playing for his 2nd / 3rd etc choice club?

{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I explained. And it changes nothing in terms of what I said.}

5.) 01 Jul 2016 16:29:28
I think we should hold any Pogba questions until Wednesday chaps eh? No point in continually asking questions, when the answer has been given and nothing is known further for 5 days. I get p*ssed off with myself that I sit reading the same question over and over, so god knows how the eds cope.

6.) 01 Jul 2016 16:38:44
Agree brendan I can see it going the way of the pear with ed002 and we have only just got him/ her back and loads of the longer term posters are coming back too it's great atm.
I hope no one f##ks it up.

7.) 01 Jul 2016 16:42:18
If it's unimportant why is it significant ed?

{Ed002's Note - All of the detail of what is happening is not worth my explaining.}

8.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:41
I agree with Brendan81. it is great to finally have ed02 back. he has told us it will be clearer next week. let's wait until next week to ask for further information even though it may be killing you inside as you want as much info now as you can get.

9.) 01 Jul 2016 16:44:42
Good shout bren.
I know you don't think we should sign pogba. What do you make of zlatan signing?
And mhyk?

10.) 01 Jul 2016 16:45:38
I'm not trying to piss people off. But I'm curious how unusual it is for a player to move to a club that isn't his first choice.

In the real world lots of us work for companies that don't even reach our top 100 first choices.

I suppose if di Maria is anything to go off, it typically ends badly when you're a highly paid elite footballer.

11.) 01 Jul 2016 17:07:35
Ed002, will Pogba be involved in the Brexit negotiations and if so what hairstyle will he have?

12.) 01 Jul 2016 17:27:58
That a question to me Ken? :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2016 17:44:59
Mourinho's formal unveiling to media will be on Tuesday. One of the significant events related to United.

14.) 01 Jul 2016 18:00:29
Calm down lads, the man said it would be clearer tue. or wed.

15.) 01 Jul 2016 18:09:23
Yes Brendan.

16.) 01 Jul 2016 18:55:16
I would have no problems going for Pogba if he hadn't left as he had, saying it was due to playing time, when it seems it wasn't, from things people have said. That plus the fact he wants Real not us, makes me want him less, and Β£80m+ is way over priced, but we have been silly in the recent past.
Zlatan in terms of quality, experience and the effect he could have on the younger players and squad as a whole, may be ok short term, but I worry as it will be all about him and nothing else, which might not be good. Then again he could have an Eric effect, and who would moan about that?
Micky, I've not seen enough to give a fair assessment. The bits I've seen of him playing at Dortmund, he seems quick, skilful, has a good shot and can pass the ball well. He along with Martial and Rashford could give some serious speed going forward, which would bring some much needed excitement back to the team.

17.) 01 Jul 2016 22:00:32
If I had to name a 100 companies I'd be down to my local kebab shop and taxi rank before half way.

ED 002 u crack me up! :D.



09 Jun 2016 13:22:03
I've heard we are after seamus coleman again, any of the Ed's know if he will be moving this summer.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest leahy he had a very poor season for us, it was in stark contrast to the season before when he was arguably our best player, there was talk then of united being interested and after that his form took a terrible dip, that leads me to think that he would be open to a move and especially if it were one of the biggest names like utd, but with moshiri and now koeman at the helm i would think they would try and persuade him to stay mate..

1.) 09 Jun 2016 20:46:18
Cheers ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 09 Jun 2016 22:01:25
Has Koeman been appointed yet?

3.) 10 Jun 2016 00:03:29
African, which team do you support?
You seem to pop up every now and then out of the blue.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 23:13:45
Ed025 if your about, do you think ye will be a force to reckon with next year, with a new manager and some money to spend ed,
I was surprised to see Gibson getting a new contract.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think we would be competitive leahy and be in and around the top 6, its exciting times at goodison with the introduction of moshiri who has big plans for the club and for the first time in a long while lack of money cannot be an excuse. darron getting a 2yr contract shocked me to be honest mate, not just because of his terrible injury record but because of his off-field antics..

Ed001, great article on pele.
What a player the reason football became famous was because of pele.
I remember watching the film escape to victory and myself and my mates playing football out in the road breaking our backs of the concrete trying to do bicycle kicks. I still have a hard back after it.


{Ed001's Note - hahahaha I remember hurting myself a few times trying to do those, but not because of Escape to Victory or Pele, as I am obviously not as old as you, as they were both before my time. Have to admit, shamefully I have never seen Escape to Victory!}

1.) 20 Nov 2017 17:18:27
Ed a film you should watch, ed I thought you were around the same age as myself.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea how old you are but it seems I am much much younger. Someone around here has to be young and pretty....}

2.) 20 Nov 2017 18:34:14
Is that not Bond's job, Ed007?

{Ed001's Note - he is old and decrepit mate, he has never been young or pretty. He is like Benjamin Button, except he was born old and is getting older.}

3.) 20 Nov 2017 19:01:02
Ed just out of interest do you write for any newspapers or internet blogs as you are fairly good at it.

{Ed001's Note - only for these sites and for the youtube channel linked in the articles sometimes. I don't have the qualifications to get a job writing for newspapers etc, as I was told once many years ago when I was recommended to a newspaper. They got me in for an interview (long before the sites were actually anything more than a hobby) on the back of what I wrote on the original site, but were no longer interested once they saw I had no qualifications.}

4.) 20 Nov 2017 20:16:57
Ed I worked in buildings, plastering, block laying and I see blokes coming on with qualifications and they wouldn't build a house with Lego, then you see the boys with no qualifications but plenty of experience now there the boys that can build.
My old fella was a tree surgeon and I got in to the chainsaw work about 7 or 8 years ago and I've seen fellas with qualifications nearly killing themselves knocking trees.
I just can bare these fellas with qualifications who wouldn't work to warm themselves. Rant over.

{Ed001's Note - you are preaching to the converted mate, natural aptitude will always be more important than qualifications, though I wish the coaching fraternity would remember that. Far too many coaches with lots of badges but no idea about the game.}

5.) 20 Nov 2017 21:02:48
Yes ed I've seen that also. can't beat experience. same with some players ed they are over coached, they don't play with freedom and natural instinct.

{Ed001's Note - very much so, they don't get to play in the streets like we used to, sadly. That is why indoor versions, such as futsal are so important for players to develop flair.}

6.) 20 Nov 2017 23:05:05
I remember seeing an article about the England set-up at St George's, and the overwhelming sense was one of bright, young, wet-behind-the-ears teachers and analysts walking round with clipboards. When you think of the experience amongst recent ex-England players going to waste.

7.) 20 Nov 2017 23:32:49
Have the England under aged teams not going through their best ever ruin of results ever winning euro and world cups. Someone is doing something right with these elite players.

Its thre rough diamonds that don't get access to the elite coaches and facilities and education that are suffering.

The elite underage coaching is fine all belie that is a mess and Tyne fa need to sort it in order to become a superpower art international level again. Too many youngsters getting too much too soon and never fulfilling the potential they had as teenagers.

I have no idea what The answer is but premier league clubs are not bringing through enough English youngsters.

8.) 20 Nov 2017 23:46:19
99 there's a lot of them blokes around and they can't even kick a ball. Get the scholes the Gerrards. lampards coaching, people will sit back and listen to them boys.

9.) 21 Nov 2017 14:57:04
Or roy Keane. because that's gone well unless you support Ipswich Sunderland or Ireland.
The best players don't always make the best coaches in fact they seldom do.
And not too many retiring epl players want to coach for 25k per annum at an acadamy or for free at grass roots.

The whole system needs updating in the UK from grass roots right through to the epl, that is of course unless everybody in Spain Holland Germany italy and France has it wrong and all those world cup and euro wins were flukes.

At grass roots level I've seen referees parents and coaches come to blows and have arguments at u12 age group. I mean they don't even play competitive football in Spain or Germany or Holland at that age.

But as I said perhaps they all have it wrong!

{Ed001's Note - a lot of the problems stem from the ridiculous cost of getting badges meaning you only get people doing it who see it as a career. The enthusiastic amateur simply cannot afford to do them and so you end up with a bunch at the bottom end coaching kids with a chip on their shoulder as they think they should be coaching Premier League teams.}

10.) 21 Nov 2017 16:15:33
Its a good film though. Forget the ropey acting its just entertainment.

{Ed001's Note - I will have to watch it one day when I have some spare time.}

11.) 21 Nov 2017 16:25:21
That is one off the issues ed but the structure of underage football is all wrong couple that with the pressure put on under 8 div z to win its not conducive to developing player skills.

{Ed001's Note - very true, but again part of that is down to the coaches wanting to show how good they are to get promoted up the chain. Youth coaching should be seen as the highest level, it is the most important time and when a coach can have the most impact on a player's development, if they are good.}



01 Nov 2017 13:24:51
David de gea hasn't conceded a goal at old Trafford for 7 months.
And he isn't rated by fifa.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 13:35:48
I think that's a bit unfair leahy.
The most recent awards were for the team of the season last year not the best player awards.
Buffon won the league agsin and hot to CL final again. Ddg played well but didn't play in our el win and we were sixth in the league. So in terms of keepers having great seasons ddg was not up there for the last few couple of seasons. The team not being hugely succesful will stunt any opportunity for most of those awards.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 13:44:40
It's ridiculous, I suspect it has more to do with him not competing in the UCL last season than them not rating him. He is clearly one of the top three keepers in the world, arguably the best at this moment in time.

Personally I stopped concerning myself with FIFA and what they think a long time ago.

3.) 01 Nov 2017 14:18:47
It was for team of the season buffon had a better season what's the problem?

4.) 01 Nov 2017 14:44:25
Ken buffons team had the better season. Is that down to the keepers?

5.) 01 Nov 2017 16:21:32
Mort its the way it usually works buffon was great last year he captained the side to another title and euro final ddg didn't.

6.) 01 Nov 2017 16:56:59
Juventus played well but ddg was better than Buffon .
It surely isn't for which player played in a team that done the best? Why isn't it just all the players from Madrid?

Why are Insta Messi and neymar in it, what did they win?

7.) 01 Nov 2017 17:21:23
Ddg was not better than buffon last season jred.
Messi was in as he had yet another outstanding season. As did neymar he secured a world record deal. But sure a bit like jose jred your not happy unless your are moaning at somebody or something.
I know you think winni g thi gs is not a great measure of players but its what counts st the end of a career.

8.) 01 Nov 2017 18:32:02
Not at all, myself and others simple think that ddg was better than Buffon last season .

You said very clearly above that Buffon was in because it was for " team of the season last year not the best player awards. Β "

How do you pick a team of the season if it's not for the best player?

Why was neymar in for example when he won nothing (unlike ddg) and not someone like dybla who was also very good and won the league and got to the CL final . Just like Buffon did .

Back up your argument and answer a question.

9.) 01 Nov 2017 18:32:43
Ken Dr gea was last season and this a better keeper than buffon.
Now Ken you have a fair moan yourself about martial and Rooney the whole of last season.

10.) 01 Nov 2017 18:44:24
Ken, you need to put your shovel down and stop digging. You say it's about winning things but there are plenty who didn't win anything right up there. It just shows the flaws in the rankings. You clearly disagree but DDG right now is possibly the best around, I think Buffon was more of a lifetime achievement thing, give it him before he retires.

11.) 01 Nov 2017 20:40:15
It usually is selected from the high profile teams wrong or competing at the highest level united did neither last year no shovel required.
I think ddg is the best in the world but his team were not competing at tje highest level. I would suggest that if united win the cl this season or spain a world cup next season ddg will be the keeper selected.
I think for what he achieved and at his age too buffon was tje outstanding candidate for keeper of the season.
Your opion differs but buffon won so i'm not alone in that view so no shovel required ajh.

12.) 01 Nov 2017 20:46:56
Of course not .
Contradicted yourself 3 times but what does that matter πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

One day you will answer a question and back up your famous opinion.

13.) 01 Nov 2017 21:03:04
Buffon did get to a European final last season, but De Gea won a European final. Or was that Romero? Maybe that's why he wasn't rated, because he didn't participate in the Europa? IDK.

14.) 01 Nov 2017 21:14:15
The fifa team of the season is nothing more than a popularity contest that some fans get sucked into.

15.) 01 Nov 2017 21:17:36
whay part do you not understand jred? I think ddg is best keeper in the world but last season buffon and his team achived more ddg didn't even play in a European comp last season. Buffon was the outstanding candudate on last years achievements imo.

16.) 01 Nov 2017 21:19:46
Buffon was given it to make up for all the times he should've won it but lost out to casillas.

17.) 01 Nov 2017 21:50:31
Put the spade down .
What did neymar and his team win?
Ddg didn't even play in the final? So what πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
Navas won the CL, la liga and the super cup more than Buffon?
So what ddg is still a better player.

You say "ddg was not better than buffon last season jred" but "ddg is the best in the world" .

The fifa team is a popularity contest for fans who think if you win some thing your automatically better than anyone else .

18.) 01 Nov 2017 23:25:34
Joe hart is a pretty good keeper too.

19.) 02 Nov 2017 00:48:57
Mort do you think buffon would have got it if juve finished 6th and if he didn't play in European competition at all?

20.) 02 Nov 2017 05:33:44
Stopped paying attention to FIFA an UEFA when Messi won the best player award during the 2014 World Cup.

They are anti-English clubs and England for a start because we have mopped up commercially in my opinion, and we don't quite fit in to their ways. Had DDG been playing for Madrid and performed exactly the same he would have won the award, but who cares really, it's all politics and ass kissing. Man Utd haven't been the force of old for a while now so it's not surprising that we (and our players) get overlooked for awards like this, but in saying that it doesn't take much of an effort for us to be ignored. It will only get worse with Brexit imo.

Best thing to do is not engage with their propaganda.

21.) 02 Nov 2017 07:09:32
Jred you are pretty unintelligent. Alli played better than ronalso last night but i still think ronaldo is the best player in the world. It doest make alli a better player it means he had a better game than ronaldo last night.
Buffon had a better season last season than ddg but i still think ddg is the better keeper overall over past gew seasons.

22.) 02 Nov 2017 08:22:51
As many people above have said the team Buffon played for had a better season than the team ddg played for but ddg was the better player .

If it was on what the team you played for won navas should of got it . neymar who won nothing shouldn't off .

If fact if it was based on what you won it would be TEAM of the season the team who had done the best .
But it's not it is meant to be a team made up of the best performing players .

You have contradicted yourself about 6 times .
Very quick to give your famous opinion but never answer a question to back it up .

Ali played well last, so what it was one game πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it's got nothing to do with anything . Put the spade down . in fact don't it's comedy gold.

23.) 02 Nov 2017 08:24:15
I think your on the money pal.
The whole think is a joke NEARLY all fans know that.

24.) 02 Nov 2017 13:08:34
De Gea, undoubtedly a better GK IMO.

I don't know how they pick a world XI. Statistically speaking, last year Buffon won his domestic league and got to UCL final, similar amount of clean sheets but with less minutes played. Probably get's it on his achievements last year. But ask me who I'd rather in my world XI, De Gea everyday. Juventus seem to have been more consistent in the UCL last couple of years.



26 Oct 2017 22:59:51
The carabooo cup is a fair joke. Top 4 teams kept apart.
The Emirates fa cup

Not great to watch. But a bit of courage and determination goes a long way.

No team will want to play ireland in the play offs.

{Ed025's Note - i think they will leahy..

a lot of good teams in the playoffs but they're there for a reason any can beat any over two legs, Croatia and Italy's are the only two i'd fear.

5.) 09 Oct 2017 23:10:36
Ed we are a hard team to beat,
We were missing 3 or 4 players and I thought houlihan should have started but I was wrong.
As I said there's good spirit there and it will take a good team to come to dublin and beat us.
And we can win away, we didn't lose an away game all campaign.

{Ed025's Note - im not saying you are no-hopers leahy, just that other teams like italy and possibly portugal will be the teams to avoid, i really hope you get through and i will be cheering them on mate..

6.) 10 Oct 2017 07:31:02
Think it's easy playing Ireland ed0025?

{Ed025's Note - not easy angel but certainly easier than facing the italys and portugals of this world mate, good luck to the irish though and i would certainly sooner watch them than boring england ..

Congrats ireland, if it had to be anyone taking our place then happy it’s you guys but your going to need to show some ambition in the play offs, 1 mistake from wales is what got you thru, not that i'm bitter πŸ˜‚.

Haha WRD. Correct me if I'm wrong but even a draw wasn't enough for you lot at the end due to other results last night. Imagine if you had scored one right at the death, then none of us would have went through lol.

I think all those games are tough ed. I think Greece probably being the easiest for the seeded teams.

Ireland always seem to have this grit and ability to get a result when needed. I think Italy would prefer someone else than Ireland. We've always done okay against them.

Ed025, out of the 4 unseeded teams (Greece, Sweden, Ireland, Northern Ireland) Who do you think out of the seeded teams (Italy, Portugal/ Switzerland, Denmark, Croatia) will want to avoid the most in the qualifiers.

I'm betting they would all prefer someone else rather than the ROI. I'm with you on this Leahy.

{Ed025's Note - sweden obviously, the other 3 will be a good draw for the seeds angel, you may not want to hear that mate but its true..

No your right Croatia won so we had to win to get above them and Slovakia into the last playoff spot. Wales played well in general play but we didn’t really know what to do up top, Allen going off didn’t help, obvs missed Bale but can’t rely on 1 player, future is bright with Brooks, Woodburn, Lawrence and can see bale being used as a CF for wales before too long. Will Coleman be there tho, I’m not so sure. As for Ireland, tough team to break down but to beat any of those in the play offs they will need to have a go at some point, hope Ireland do it for Keanoo! Lol.

12.) 10 Oct 2017 18:43:50
I s even put Greece above ROI a good team spirit but a walk over for the seeded teams.

13.) 10 Oct 2017 18:46:48
Teams shouldn't be seeded for the play offs. Fair draw, sink or swim.

14.) 10 Oct 2017 16:57:29
Okay mate it that's what you think. I would have thought a toss up between those 2 sides.

Ireland are always tough to beat. Just the reality of the past number of years. They always seem to get a result.

Nah ed0025 I'm not a touchy Irish fan or anything. International football is what it is. For me Sweden and Ireland are a toss up, Leahy was right, I don't think anyone would like to draw Ireland. I'm sure they would much prefer either Greece or N Ireland.

15.) 12 Oct 2017 01:27:24
So the seeded teams would rather play the 20th placed team than the 34th placed team? Aye, dead on lads πŸ˜€.

Fellani after picking up knee injury.
A week before the Liverpool game, the team that can't defend set pieces.
Jose will be happy.

In some games you need the physical player to get stuck in.
It's not all about fancy players.
Fellani is good for us in both boxes for set pieces and he as a bit of heart.

Great player. I can't understand why Chelsea let him go. and Mata.
And kevin d. b. why the left him go.
That's 3 players that would make Chelsea favourites for the title.


{Ed002's Note - Matic wanted to leave and Chelsea are not a club to stand in the way of a player leaving should an acceptable offer be made. Mata was not wanted by Mourinho because he did not see him doing what was asked of him on the defensive side - so they moved him on. de Bruyne acted like a petulent child and whined a lot - and wanted guarantees of first team football which Chelsea don't give. There was a very good offer and they moved him on.}

Now ed Steven Gerrard could have done with a pair of them a few years ago. There's a good grip on them, lol.

Very interesting Ed, never heard that before, the pele pact, I'd say he could play football with a pair of slip on shoes.
It was like scholes when he came out of retirement he went and bought a 30 pound pair of boots in his local sports shop and had something like 99% pass rate against city his first game back.


{Ed001's Note - I don't think any good player really needs expensive shoes really. Though I do know Stylo are still making shoes, sod the Pumas, Stylo are still black!}

Yes ed I've seen that also. can't beat experience. same with some players ed they are over coached, they don't play with freedom and natural instinct.


{Ed001's Note - very much so, they don't get to play in the streets like we used to, sadly. That is why indoor versions, such as futsal are so important for players to develop flair.}
