Hi Ed. Lazy link this one but are we looking at Ziyech from Chelsea?


{Ed002's Note - This was a suggestion about a month ago from a retired Dutch player - I don't recall who.}

1.) 07 Jun 2022 10:51:13
van Basten I believe.

2.) 07 Jun 2022 12:18:13
Yeah I think that’s where it came from spenno.

3.) 07 Jun 2022 12:52:21
I do think he's a useful player, and that we will have to subsidise our rebuild of a few bigger signings and youth promotions with a few astute free or cheaper ones. I don't think every signing has to be 'one for the future' right now.

4.) 07 Jun 2022 16:35:43
A wide player who can not beat his man 1 vs 1 and doesn't make runs in behind and also isn't a particularly serious goal threat is not exactly what we need right now.

Also him and bruno in the same team would be hard to watch, just two players hoofing the ball and giving it away for fun.

5.) 07 Jun 2022 16:37:24
I find myself on the fence with signing a wide player.

On one hand if we don't then we only have Sancho and Rashford as players with any sort of experience playing those roles at this level.

After them it's Elanga with around 10 games.

Yet on the other hand we currently have Pellistri, Amad, Elanga, Garnacho and Shoretire all waiting in the wings and needing chances to step up.

Them 5 along with Rashford and Sancho gives us potentially 7 players for 2 positions.

I think if we sign another wide player now then how/ when will those youngsters get a chance?

Personally I think Elanga did enough last season to be given a chance.

Then if we keep one of Amad or Pellistri while loaning the other out, and do the same with Garnacho and Shoretire.

Then we have Rashford, Sancho, Elanga, Amad/ Pellistri, and Garnacho/ Shoretire giving us five options for 2 spots in the team.

While not ideal having so many young inexperienced players covering the wide roles, maybe next season with limited expectations could be the best time to blood them in.

Certainly I think CDM, CB, ST, fullback and probably a second second midfielder are all more important. If Henderson leaves then a back up keeper is also more important than a 3rd choice wide player.

6.) 07 Jun 2022 17:27:09
Who has limited expectation?

7.) 07 Jun 2022 18:45:03
You left out Martial Shappy ?.

8.) 07 Jun 2022 19:25:27
My expectations are certainly not limited ?.

9.) 07 Jun 2022 19:48:00
I think we're well stocked in the wide areas. I'd love to see garnacho get atleast 20 appearances next season rather than sign someone who will stunt his development. i think 1 striker and concentrate on the midfield and defence.

10.) 07 Jun 2022 20:58:20
Ken, do you expect us to win the league next season?

Do you expect us to seriously challenge City and Liverpool for the title? Finish within 5-6 points of the eventual winners.

I think most fans expect top four finish and maybe a good cup run or two. Which is a massive come down from most season's where United fans expect a cup win and a challenge for the title.

I expect most United fans will have higher expectations in EtH second season than his first. After he's had a year to train the players in his style, and after he has had two summer transfer windows and maybe have been able to bring in 6-8 players of his own.

11.) 07 Jun 2022 21:01:21
I put LF and RF as the second least priority after GK for us right now. Perhaps ETH sees it differently, if so there is a lot of money to be recouped from flogging some of the incumbents who play there.

12.) 07 Jun 2022 21:33:26
Shappy speak for yourself.

13.) 07 Jun 2022 21:43:19
So Ken, you expect us to win the league next season?

14.) 07 Jun 2022 22:29:36
Nunez can cut in from the flanks as he has been, I don’t think he needs to be viewed as just a CF. Just as Timber can player CB/ RB. Hopefully a few players who can mix it up a bit.

15.) 08 Jun 2022 00:00:39
1 brain 2 eyes ten fingers its so clear you always use them in that proportion.
You may have limited expectations I don't.
I don't consider winning anything an expectation. I never did.
Humble in victory gracious in defeat.
You have a completely different perspective from me on what expectations are and supporting the club mean very different things to us both.
I'm not saying you are wrong for your thought process but it's very far from aligned with mine.

16.) 08 Jun 2022 01:28:19
There is no pressure for ten hag imo, we have seen how bad these players have been,

But even with 10 percent more effort we can challenge spurs and arsenal for top 4

But saying that if spurs get the players conte wants they could be a very good side.

We should be looking at a EL run and aiming for top 4 but i just want to see better football and the players actually showing they give a crap.

Its not a quick fix.

17.) 08 Jun 2022 07:30:00
Ken, the comment was very simple.

Are your expectations for Manchester United next season the same as they were Under Sir Alex?

Most United fans, or at least it seemed that way, expected a title challenge this season.

Probably not unreasonable given that the previous manager had three years to build his squad.

Your expectations for this season certainly weren't met, in fact your expectations under Ole weren't met at all.

You complained every time we lost a semi, and you did after we lost the EL final.

You expected more. You expected to win.

If you didn't expect more at that time then you complaints at that time were little more than digs at a manager you didn't like rather than genuine concerns and disappointment at missing our on silverware.

So don't say you don't expect United to win things and to challenge for titles.

I guarantee you that if United under EtH play entertaining football, and the players give 100%, but in 3 years time we still haven't got close to winning anything, then you'll be calling for the managers head and saying he isn't good enough to be a United manager based on his inability to win things.

18.) 08 Jun 2022 09:52:28
No one will call for his head if we can see visible progression from year to year shappy.



02 Jun 2022 13:51:27
Hi Ed. Whatever happened to Haidara joining? Seems back in winter he was a dead cert? Do we still hold interest or has that gone with Rangnick?


{Ed002's Note - It was Rangnick interest from his time at Lokomotiv Moscow - probably gone now.}

1.) 02 Jun 2022 14:10:28
Cheers Ed thanks.



02 May 2022 23:15:25
Forgive me if this has been covered Ed, but do you expect Ronaldo to be at Utd for next season?


{Ed002's Note - My understanding is that the club would rather cut strings if possible this summer.}

1.) 03 May 2022 00:59:45
Do you know if he wants to leave? Obviously club are still looking for a striker and will need one anyway even if he stays right?

{Ed002's Note - I understand that he would be open to offers and that JM is making enquiries. Not being in the Champions League may well provide a suitable excuse.}

2.) 03 May 2022 09:39:24
Thanks Ed much appreciated.

3.) 03 May 2022 09:50:15
PSG seems the most likely landing spot for him if he were to leave you'd imagine? Not many other top sides who could pay the wages or have the need for Ronaldo as it stands.

Personally, I hope he stays simply because we have enough problems to solve without also losing our top scorer.

{Ed002's Note - Possibly but there is certainly another option already of the table. We will see what happens.}

4.) 03 May 2022 09:54:53

Do you know of any interested clubs?

Do you think he could move to the MLS?

{Ed002's Note - It is too early to get in to this - see what JM comes up with.}

5.) 03 May 2022 10:13:17
Thabsk ED002.

6.) 03 May 2022 10:22:08
I could see the other club being Real Madrid, particularly if they lose out on Haaland to City and if Mbappé is considering renewing at PSG.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

7.) 03 May 2022 13:37:41
More likely Barcelona. They wanted Haaland and want Lewandowski.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

8.) 03 May 2022 19:00:06
Haaland goes to City.
Mbappe goes to Real.
Ronaldo's options look to be stay or go to PSG as assuming nobody else will be throwing £500k a week wages at him.
I don't see Ronaldo going personally. He's won it all already and surely his United return will be failure if he goes now - not that new manager and new team needed is any guarantee of success in 12 months time. Sure PSG is a shot at Champs League - and if that's his only driver then good luck to him. Its a farmers league though and he knows it.

9.) 03 May 2022 20:58:40
I don't think he would want to stay here given the state we are in. Not sure he suits Ten Hag style either although if he is as good as I hope I am sure he can work out how to fit a Ronny in.

10.) 03 May 2022 21:10:41
Bookies have a return to Sporting Lisbon as his next club….



10 Dec 2021 13:15:22
Hi Ed hope you're well - any potential suitors for Anthony Martial in light of his agent's recent comments?


{Ed002's Note - He is being offered around.}

1.) 11 Dec 2021 09:59:28
Hard to believe clubs aren’t queuing up for him!

2.) 11 Dec 2021 11:31:45
Likely asking price and his obscene wages will put off plenty of suitors.

He is not exactly a safe bet for any club.

3.) 11 Dec 2021 15:04:59
Can’t see anything beyond a loan this January for him.

4.) 11 Dec 2021 15:09:51
Ronaldo to Real rumours gathering pace too….



11 Apr 2021 00:28:13
Ruben Neves rumours surfaced again. jury out on him. Never really pushed on from his younger days but maybe time to leave Wolves. Personally like him. Better than Fred by a country mile.


1.) 11 Apr 2021 01:06:57
Would be a good signing.
I don't think we want or need a kante type but more a ball player.

Rice would be good but expensive, Neves makes a lot sense.

2.) 11 Apr 2021 10:59:30
Anyone who gives the ball away less than Fred is an upgrade. I like Neves. Rice seems a more obvious choice with possibility of involving Lingard to reduce the fee paid.

3.) 11 Apr 2021 13:33:00
Good player, would be an improvement on players we have in that position already. Not what we need at the minute.

Would only want him after other more important positions have been filled.

4.) 11 Apr 2021 19:40:05
Rice for me. Young, English, having a great season.

5.) 12 Apr 2021 07:56:28
Only rice? No curry?

{Ed077's Note - which curry rohan?}

6.) 12 Apr 2021 15:36:55
Arthur Curry the Aquaman, would help us with diving in the European games for play acting.

7.) 12 Apr 2021 22:37:20
I like Neves, not sure he's what we need though. IMO we need a modern equivalent to Carrick, who can block passing lanes and slow attacks long enough for us to get players back.

That would let us use players like Pogba or DVB more effectively in midfield, because they would have more freedom to push high up the pitch.

At the moment, we regularly see comments moaning about Ole using 2 holding midfielders, but the truth is we don't HAVE 2 holding midfielders. Fred and McT both want to run around, chasing the ball and pressuring people, but that forces their partner to hang back, which stops Pogba or DVB doing what they do best. We need someone with more positional discipline.

8.) 12 Apr 2021 22:59:49
Neves no where near Man Utd quality. Used to be good for a goal but haven't seen him score in ages. Not a great passer and doesn't look that quick. Absolutely no truth in this rumour.

9.) 13 Apr 2021 14:48:34
Agree with jgb. Not good enough. doesn't stand out in an average Wolves team.

10.) 14 Apr 2021 01:10:45
I’ve always thought the same about Neves, when I’ve seen him play against our midfield he hasn’t stood out as better than then or even as good.

Whilst I tend to think judging a DM on ‘scoring a few good goals’ is not ideal I think he’s overrated because of this and people think he’s better than he actually is because he’s scored a few worldies.

16 Mar 2022 23:07:35
Ed2 - I read with interest your comments on next manager for Utd and that ten Hag would be a disaster.

Can you elaborate why please? My assumption is that we don't have the structure in place to support what is essentially a coach whereas Poch is more a manager?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before - try searching.}

1.) 16 Mar 2022 23:17:56
Got it cheers Ed.

2.) 17 Mar 2022 09:12:19
i think it was along the lines of the structure above would not suit him, but you never know anyone that comes in could fail or they could succeed.

one thing is we need to give them the help they need and let them do thee job, so many past managers have said they want x y and z but always ended up with 3rd or 4 choices.



07 Dec 2021 21:49:21
I'm really looking forward to tomorrows game. I think Ralf will rotate a little, and good chance for under utilised players to make their claim. Donny, Jesse etc all in theory should work under his regime so let's see.

Keen to see how Mason and Rashford react to him too. Martial? Sadly injured but if he can add workload to his game we have a superstar there.


1.) 07 Dec 2021 23:28:07
Eric, agree on all apart from martial, I think we're flogging a dead horse there. I can fully appreciate some players trying their hardest but are simply not good enough. However, Martial is the worst sort of player as he has all the attributes to be a great player, but he never gives anywhere near enough. I think Rangnick will soon find out and the end could be very close for Martial.

2.) 08 Dec 2021 07:31:41
Eric, how long has martial been with us? And you still think there's a superstar there ?.

3.) 08 Dec 2021 07:44:02
Angel you never know with a run of games he will be the best in the world? I wonder where that poster is nowadays? probably boring everybody down the pub.

4.) 08 Dec 2021 09:19:15
Martial has all the talent to be a top player, but sadly he is lacking a little between the ears.

He just doesn't have the mentality to be a top player, he isn't prepared to put in the hard yards, and he crumbles under pressure.

This is his 7th season with us, 3 more and he's due a testimonial, and we are still talking about him as "potential" and waiting for him to have that breakout season.

Time to let him leave, he's one of those players who'll look class playing for a mid-table or Europa League level club. Somewhere like Arsenal would be a good fit for him. He'll play every week with no competition for his place, he'll never play in high pressure games. In the off chance he does make it to a final he'll almost certainly be playing for the underdogs, so will have little real pressure.

5.) 08 Dec 2021 10:58:09
Sports psychologist coming, a new manager with actual tactics who can tell him hat he needs to do…. never say never.

6.) 08 Dec 2021 11:45:26
Eric, you can never say never, but I think Martial's time at the club is drawing to a close.

7.) 08 Dec 2021 12:24:48
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll shed no tears when both and Pogba leave, but stranger things have happened.

8.) 08 Dec 2021 12:40:50
I agree Eric. none of us holding our breath but there is a player in there. just not trying to get out.

9.) 08 Dec 2021 13:50:14
Im going to say never; martial will never be a good player. He's too lazy and one dimensional.

Isnt he on £350k a week or something stupid?

10.) 08 Dec 2021 14:06:33
MancMan, he's Joel Glazer's favourite player apparently, which goes some way to both explain his obscene wages as well as our clear lack of footballing knowledge at the top.

11.) 08 Dec 2021 16:29:16
I think he might rotate a lot more than just a little, hopefully no players that played last weekend or next weekend start, they need a full week of training.



02 Nov 2021 22:48:01
Entertaining tonight in terms of scoreline. Performance as disjointed as ever.

Ronaldo is simply the best ever.

Maguire is simply not.


1.) 02 Nov 2021 23:24:53
Could've left it at 'simple' for Maguire.



04 Oct 2021 15:06:04
Let's assume OGS only had weeks/ months left.

Who's your pick to replace him. One, realistic name only. I'll start and still go with Pochettino as think he can be persuaded to get out of PSG.


1.) 04 Oct 2021 15:19:08

2.) 04 Oct 2021 15:27:01

3.) 04 Oct 2021 15:31:23
Potter has shown himself to be an excellent coach who improves not only players but teams. Inexperience may be a risk at a club of United's size with a squad full of egos but I wouldn't be disappointed if we ended up with him.

I've always had a soft spot for Lucien Favre's sides who are generally a really good watch.

I still reckon Conte and Zidane would likely be the front runners. Conte doesn't generally produce the most entertaining teams and he falls out with the board but he'd get the club back to winning ways. Zidane did incredibly well at Real but strangely still seems a risk despite his success.

4.) 04 Oct 2021 15:40:01
From Harry to Graham.

5.) 04 Oct 2021 15:46:34
Quite honestly I really would not want Poch, although he would be better then Ole that goes without saying and he would bring his own coaches with him so means our laughing boys would be gone too, so maybe yeah …go for that, he will be sacked at PSG soon anyway and ZZ in there.

6.) 04 Oct 2021 16:13:07
Ten Hag or Claudio Raneri.

7.) 04 Oct 2021 16:19:08
The same poch who has never won a trophy and is just after losing to Rennes 2-0, while failing to register a single shot on goal with an attack of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe.
The same poch who came 2nd in the French farmers league last season?

Honest to god, lunatics running the asylum these days.
Ye criticise Ole but love Poch. Where's the difference, if ones a pe teacher so is the other.

{Ed014's Note - Poch did lose a final rather than a semi ?

8.) 04 Oct 2021 16:29:04
PSG don't seem to be doing too bad this season. 6 points clear in Ligue 1 already and just beat our champions Man City, quite comprehensively.

Poch is far from a PE teacher. Anyone with half a brain knows that he is a good coach.

9.) 04 Oct 2021 16:43:09
Poch Is a good coach where I think his downfall comes is dealing with superstars and big egos, that’s what I think will also happen at PSG with him.

He was doing great at Spurs when they were mainly kids and no big ego’s at that time, once they all started to think they were about to win everything and were superstars the wheels started to fall off.

That’s where I believe he let's himself down in becoming an elite coach, but he is ahead of Ole that’s for sure by a country mile…… would PSG swap Poch for Ole not a chance, Would PSG like a bigger name coach then Poch…. most certainly it’s all about PR for PSG.

10.) 04 Oct 2021 16:51:01
Just watch us try and grab Southgate or failing that it’ll be zidane for the big name.

Potter is doing great with Brighton, but I think he needs to move up one more level to show what he can do before he gets one of the top jobs. One to keep an eye on perhaps.

I’d love ten Haag. Ajax have a similar philosophy in terms of attacking football and bringing through younger players, something he’s proved to be good at so far.

11.) 04 Oct 2021 16:58:46
Potter (hugely influenced by Ed 001's article) or ten Haag. Wildcard Marcelo Gallardo.

12.) 04 Oct 2021 17:02:15
I really like the style of play that managers like Potter, Rose and Marsch play. Yet I think they are all a little too inexperienced for a club United's size. Especially as the club isn't best set up to support managers and expects them to do everything on their own, even when being undermined occasionally.

For that reason I think we need someone with a little more experience and understanding. My pick would be either Erik Ten Hag or Ralf Rangnick. Both play good football, both more experienced, both have had jobs above that of a mere manager which should make negotiating the tricky behind scenes at United a little easier.

That said I expect the club to go down the route of "who's the biggest name currently unemployed" which means it'll be either Conte or Zidane currently. I actually think Conte might turn us down if approached. He only wants jobs where he can be a success, and he is no mug, a few conversations with Woodward will give Conte the measure of the club and he might just choose to sit tight until a better job opportunity comes along.

13.) 04 Oct 2021 17:12:33
Brendan Rodgers. Get your heads past the Liverpool connection. Excellent coach, all his teams have played good football, made some excellent signings on limited money, good team around him. But can you get your head past the Liverpool connection?

14.) 04 Oct 2021 17:14:31
Caolan that is a huge worry, Southgate in for Ole, no one in the world could be that cruel to united fans to let that happen…. Pleeeasssssssse No.

15.) 04 Oct 2021 21:31:39
Rodgers is a good shout if your looking at epl experience Big club experience got very close with Liverpool won the Cup at Leicester did what he had to do at celtic i think he is a very good coach.
There are question marks as there are over most candidates but if have no objection.

16.) 05 Oct 2021 06:42:33
Managing United isn't just about ability, its having the resilience to cope with the pressure week in week out, something Ole does quite well.

Shappy I'm sorry but Ten Hag looks like he might be off to Barca, and Ralf you would have to ask why hasn't he been picked up by another club since leaving RB.



29 Sep 2021 22:32:52
Ronaldo needs to get a sponsorship from Polyfilla papering over the biggest cracks we've seen in years.

This management reminds of when Souness was in charge at Liverpool in the 90s.


1.) 29 Sep 2021 22:42:27
Him and ddg. Cavani changed the whole team.

2.) 29 Sep 2021 22:52:19
Ddg 9.5-10
Dalot 2-10
Telles 6-10
Varane 6-10
Lindelof 5-10
Mctom 4-10
Pogba 3-10
Mason 4-10
Sancho 5-10
Ronaldo 8-10
Cavani 9-10
Matic 7-10
Lingard fred not enough time. Good assist by Jesse.

3.) 29 Sep 2021 22:56:23
More like Hodgson dude.

4.) 29 Sep 2021 23:21:43
Bruno 4-10.

5.) 29 Sep 2021 23:55:08
Fantastic game, enjoyed that. Good subs by Ole, changed the game. Fred, matic, cavani, jesse all contributed and kept the momentum.

I thought their back 5 played very well, capoue also, and they are no mugs. I know everyone wants to say we should be walking that game, but not many walk any game against them.

I think this team will get better and better. McT was better after looking rusty at the weekend. Sancho looked more dangerous, he is going to keep getting better. Obviously 3 players out from our back 4 effected our defense and Ville went after dallot - this was a game that wan Bissaka would have been useful for.

Ronny is a gem. This season is going to be a blessing watching these guys.

6.) 30 Sep 2021 01:11:01
Ken you clearly never watched the game . Worst player on the pitch by a million miles was Ronaldo closely followed by Dalot . Ole deserves a little bit of credit because all his subs did well Cavani in particular is fantastic, however he deserves most credit for leaving Ronaldo on because he should of been hooked. Didn’t run, didn’t show, did absolutely nothing then does that at the end which is incredible! Cavani showed in that 20 minutes what leading the line and setting an example is all about!
Well done to the players for sticking at it against a good team ?⚫️.

7.) 30 Sep 2021 04:14:13
DodgyBanter, yes we overcame a mighty Villareal?.

If you enjoyed that game as a neutral then fine otherwise our performance was just not good enough. We were lucky to get all 3 points.

I really don't see us winning anything with performances like that because you can get away with it maybe a couple of times in a season but not all the time.

8.) 30 Sep 2021 05:53:19
Dodgy you were watching the United game, right?
We were so poor- disjointed headless chickens at times.
I try and stay positive most times but on another day we would of been pasted.

{Ed014's Note - I read his post with disbelief, there’s supporting your team and all that but that was just so left field it was untrue.

What is it you guys call it, bolloxology?

Anyone else I’d have thought, sarcasm at its finest.

9.) 30 Sep 2021 06:14:07
I thought it was sarcasm too Ed but then I read the name. Reminded me of jred ???.

It was a pathetic performance. Ronaldo bailing us out. But Villareal could have been 5 up before Ronaldo even touched the ball 5 times bit for De Gea and some "dodgy" finishing. And if that performance makes someone believe that we will win anything, their head needs a wobble. I mean an ex Watford midfielder was telling us how to play ball, totally ridiculous.

On a positive side, i saw a glimpse of coaching from Ole at around the 93rd minute mark when he told fred to move forward????. that's the limit of his involvement because the hands went back into the pockets next second.

{Ed014's Note - it was surreal for sure ?

10.) 30 Sep 2021 06:42:19
Think dodgy point was Villarreal are no mugs, they are tough to beat, have they played 9 this season and drew 8? They are a tough nut to crack . However there are some players who haven’t painted themselves in glory, all the subs contributed to the win so good on them ?.

11.) 30 Sep 2021 07:12:39
Chris, Ronaldo had 0 service.
We are not creating enough as a team. The system is awful.

12.) 30 Sep 2021 12:12:36
I can only assume Dodgy was swept up in the excitement of the last minute winner, as poor as the performance was I certainly can say I enjoyed last night, the atmosphere at OT when that winner went in is what football should be about.

Villareal must have been devastated not to get the win after how well they played and the away game against them will be tough but we needed that 3 points to kickstart our campaign and hopefully find some momentum.

We need a good performance on Saturday now, although good performances seem few and far between.

13.) 30 Sep 2021 07:43:59
ED014 I think Dodgy may well be just taking the P…. He got to be right?

{Ed014's Note - it’s just his opinion mate, I just thought it was the polar opposite of the game I watched but DB is invariably positive about his team.

Ferguson tried to be clever once and played Parker against Romario at CB at Old Trafford. He get annihilated. Romario was superb though. I was at the game and his movement was phenomenal. Same evening Lee Sharpe scored a beauty with a back heel.

Amazes me to see grown men (I assume most posters are adult males) whipped into a frenzy of pure panic, hatred and disgust buy the media about the fact commercial deals/ signings take time to get done. Utd will sign players - ultimately what does it really matter long term when they get done as long as they are. I think 12 Of the 20 premier league clubs are yet to do business, including Chelsea. And of those deals, very few are beyond loan to perm deals so far. City and Liverpool new strikers aside.

Ed2 has exposed there will be movement, and quite a bit I think by the look of it.

Calm down a bit. Season’s not started yet. Judge at the end of the window.

Also don’t lose site if the fact we are at the back of the queue now for the best players. Once the CL teams have concluded their business we will then get a pick of players left.

It’s funny as I play football with a Portuguese guy and a Porto fan and he says he was one of their best players. They love Telles. So he either hasn’t adapted to the Premier League, we haven’t coached him one bit since he signed, or the Portuguese league is several levels down in tents of quality. My guess is it’s a combo of the three.

If there is one phrase that grinds my gears, it’s “stealing a living” and it’s made so flippantly with no regard to the facts, the situation of the individual involved (Phil Jones in this case) and the daily work he puts in the desperately represent the club on the pitch.

Not a single person on this sight would turn money money down ever.

I like Jones - he was a decent defender - and I feel sorry that his career has been blighted by injury after injury. The club signed him up again, and he’s well within his rights to collect and fight to get fit and earn a place. If only we could say the same about 4-5 other individuals where attitude is a real issue.

It’s really weird and quite sad at best, extremely sinister behaviour at worst. Arnold’s a better man than me - no way I would have engaged them in a beer.

Ultimately it’s a game - I know all some people have is their football club, and I feel sorry for Them if that’s the case, but this type of obsession can never be healthy.
