Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?


1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32
Leftbackinthechangies?


4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.


5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.


6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.

Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.


2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.


3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market


4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.


5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got


6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.


7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke


8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.


9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.


10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!


11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}


 

 

14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}


1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}


2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!


3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.


4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.


5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}


6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.


7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.


8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

See some reports and though I don't believe them for a second. I'd be interested to hear people thoughts on the Ayew brothers at Swansea, and whether they could do a job for us. Neither are brilliant, but Jordan is very pacy and could offer cover for Mane, Salah and even up top. Andre also can cover all foward positions and even in the middle foward positions, is strong on the ball and a bit more creative. Both work very hard, would likely be happy to be part of the squad/ rotation system, seem better than cover we have, and Andre especially is a big LFC fan.

Maybe i'll get shot down, but I think it would be a shrewd bit of business to get both for say 10-20mil?

{Ed001's Note - I do not think they are good enough for a top half team in the Premier League, let alone one that wants to challenge for titles. They tick one box, of hard work, but everything else leaves a lot to be desired.}


1.) 10 May 2018 07:32:23
Fair enough ed, I’m just searching for options as im a little concerned about our depth and cover options even with the names being mentioned to come in, especially in terms of cover for the front 3.

{Ed001's Note - I am more worried about the lack of midfield options personally.}


2.) 10 May 2018 08:00:53
People need to stop with this Ayew brothers, Craig Dawson and Alfie Masson crap. They are light years from the ability we need to push us over the line of title contenders.


3.) 10 May 2018 08:18:14
I like Andre, is a very hardworking player with mane like techniques (though slightly at lower level) and is also a liverpool fan. I believe he could do well on our bench for the front three most especially in bobby's absence. You will hardly get a top class player willing to sit on the bench and see out games or waiting for an injury to get a game.
But that being said i hope harry wilson works his ass off in preseason to be the front three substitute. There is something special in that kid. He looks like these kids who find themselves right even when they intend do wrong (such people are God given and you just don't let go of them) .


4.) 10 May 2018 08:26:58
I personally think Sturridge will still be here, next season. Who will pay the asking price and match his wage demands?

Why would Sturridge take a wage cut? The way his career is going, he will be retired in a few years, so if I were him, I'd maximise my earnings whilst I still could, even if that meant being a sub for the last year of my contract at Liverpool.

He is a really good guy to have around the training ground (read what Curtis Jones said about him recently) so i doubt we'd bully him out, and I just can't see us finding a willing buyer. If he left I would think it'll be a last minute loan deal when someone starts to panic. I think It's more likely he'll go out on loan again in January though.

I'm not in the know at all, this is all just my opinion. After this West Brom experiment, who here can honestly say that they would gamble £20-25m and £100k a week on Sturridge? Imagine getting lumbered with that wage for 3-5 years and then getting relegated? The lower clubs should learn from Leeds, Portsmouth and Sunderlandand who soent beyond their means in wages and look like they'll never recover. No secure Premier league side (City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Everton or Leicester) will want him because they all have the spending power to do better nowadays.

I just hope that if I am right, Sturridge performs a minor miracle and sorts his injuries out. It is easy to forget that this is a guy who can score 25 goals a seasons. In 13/ 14 he was undeniably in the top 10 strikers in world football. It saddens me that I am now relieved he has just a year left on his contract, because I feel like we have missed out on something that could've been truly special.


5.) 10 May 2018 08:37:17
Sturridge should look to move to France or Holland. A league where the league isn't too physical.
That's my opinion anyway.
Draxler is the player I would sign. You just can't predict his behavior/ attitude. But he'll be a good option for either a midfield role or an attacking role.


6.) 10 May 2018 09:22:44
MK, sorry to burst your bubble BUT Studge won't be here and in fact, his being here is why Origi left (which I did not like cos we could have used him this season) . His injuries have destroyed him and any sports scientist will tell you that you don't sort out your injuries the older you get. It actually gets worse cos it takes much longer to recover and for a relentlessly injury-prone player like Studge, it takes way longer. I personally, want him gone so we can move on with our lives and get someone in here who can do a job and accept his role w/ o worrying about him pulling a hamstring getting out of bed.

As for Ayew or any of them, They are not good enough even as back ups, IMO. Might as well give Ojo and Wilson the game time instead of wasting wages and squad space on two average duds.


7.) 10 May 2018 09:30:53
I know Sevilla were interested last summer realtofel, but I'm just thinking about it from the perspective that if it was my club, or even my money, I would not be interested at all. He's not had a good season for 4 years now. How long can you live off of the reputation of 1 and half great seasons at Liverpool?

I hope he does get a good move abroad because I agree that it would suit him better. I just can't see who will gamble on him now. His injury saga has gotten to the point it is now ridiculous. 2 goals this season. 3 goals the season before. 8 goals two seasons ago. And 4 goals three seasons ago. You have to go back 4 seasons for the last time he hit double figures in the league, with 21 league goals in that title challenge.

31 league goals in his first 18 months, followed by 17 league goals in his next 48 months. That is a decline of epic proportions. Why would anyone want a striker who averages about 4 goals a season? On his wages, that is about £1.5m per goal!

Hope you are right buddy and there is some interest, but I am struggling to see where it comes from after another bad year; the worst yet.


8.) 10 May 2018 09:51:22
I agree with MK. I can't see any team coming in for him, why would they? what does he offer? I think he'll see out his contract with us too.

I love Sturridge but injuries have buggered him unfortunately. By all means if a team is stupid enough to come in for him we should snap their hands off but right now it's hard to imagine a team doing so.


9.) 10 May 2018 09:52:41
Brover, what you say about injuries kind of supports my point though, doesn't it?

He has a year left on his contract so we are stuck with him unless someone else is prepared to take a huge gamble (which I can't see happening for all the reasons you explained) or unless Sturridge is prepared to take a wage cut and Liverpool reduce the asking price (again, not likely to happen! )

I'm not saying he should stay or that I want him too. I'm just pointing out the fact that it is unlikely anybody will gamble on him again. Your post doesn't exactly sell him to other clubs, nor does it counter my point that nobody will want him.

The only scenario I can see him leaving in the summer is if he goes out on loan and Liverpool pay a significant chunk of his wages. I know Pardew agreed to pay a loan fee and his salary, but the way it turned out at West Brom will just be another black mark on Sturridges CV. He's cost the Baggies a fortune and given them nothing in return, other than keeping their medical staff busy.

Can anybody here come up with any reasons why someone might be prepared to invest in him? 🤔.


10.) 10 May 2018 13:53:35
MK, I'm not disputing your opinion that it would be difficult for teams to sign him. Truthfully speaking, as a club owner, I would probably not sign him on a free transfer.
I'm looking at it from Sturridge's PoV. If he "humbles" himself and realises that the French/ Dutch league will suit him cos of the tempo/ lack of physicality, he might get a good move. But he would probably want one of the top leagues and I don't know if that will help him.


11.) 10 May 2018 14:23:16
Maybe a newly promoted team might take a punt on him? Wages are the hurdle though and I see no reason why he would leave and take a pay cut.


12.) 10 May 2018 14:51:54
We'll probably be able to sell him for spare parts to any club with a rusty old striker lying around that needs fixing up. Surely there must be some bit of him that hasn't been injured? Thumbs maybe?


13.) 10 May 2018 16:30:23
I can't think of any reasons why anyone would invest in him at the price MK - I do expect both ourselves and Sturridge to significantly lower the demands though which will likely pique a few teams curiosity.


14.) 10 May 2018 19:36:17
At least The Ayews could have a good song.

From Who Are You? by The Who

Oooooooooooh Ayew ooh ooh Ayew

The simple ones are always the best.

Hey Ed002,

I was reading through the posts on the whole LVG, Allegri topics on the MU page and it got me thinking, do you know if anything similar that's happened with LFC as a result of fan group pressure that isn't common knowledge?

I understand you may not wish to answer this given the stupid responses you had on that thread, however if Ed002 does post and answer this with something we won't be proud of can I suggest the LFC fans on this thread show some class, not copy the UTD page posters, and not resort to mud slinging at the eds for answering a genuine question.

As always thanks for your time eds.

{Ed002's Note - No, the Liverpool fans have proven difficult in the past as you should know, but there is nothing going on right now but there is a sustained bitching about the owners. I don't see it as a problem at this time.}


1.) 20 Apr 2018 13:35:55
I don't like moaning about the club, whatever the state of things. I'd rather be miffed than make a fuss - I thought that's what British people did! You alluded to fans ruining the plans of the MU owners and thereby putting the club back a few steps. Are you of the opinion then that fans, in general, should just keep quiet and let the club do its thing? Obviously there are situations at certain clubs where the fans are being/ have been taken for a ride. It seems there is a fine line between putting up with disgruntlement and taking action over club self destruction. Especially when the moaning is over issues of entitlement.

27 Feb 2018 07:07:24
Hey Ed001. As usual just interested to hear your thoughts, and those of others on here.
On our midfield, it looks like Emre is leaving and Keita coming in, perhaps also someone like Cabellos. However how do you think Klopp sees our holding/ more defensive MF role? I think Hendo is the best we have at this, although arguably more effective further up the pitch, but all our other MF's, including those incoming above aren't really defensively apt. Could this point to another incoming such as the Jorginho links and if so surely someone has to leave but I can't see who Klopp would want to let go, as he loves Gini, Lallana is important and we only just got Ox. Perhaps Grujic can play there as he certainly has the talent and energy? Also a little concerned that Hendo isn't a given on the team sheet anymore? Is he injured again, being fazed out or just that Klopp prefers Can?
I know your not a mind reader but appreciate any thoughts or insight!

{Ed001's Note - as I have repeatedly said, Hendo's injury problems are a concern and it may well be that he is phased out over the next year or two. Klopp does not play with a defensive mid, he wants a playmaker to sit deep instead. Someone like Jorginho would be his ideal.}


1.) 27 Feb 2018 08:19:25
It does look like Klopp wants a more creative player rather than a destroyer, to play alongside Keita and one of the current options (Hendo, Gini, Ox) . Ceballos, Demirbay and Jorginho are the confirmed interest, and are all excellent at striding forwards and opening up a defence, but leave gaps behind them in doing so. Demirbay is the best defensively in that list and he'd offer the most steel in the centre, but Jorginho is by far the best creatively which may be what Klopp prioritises. Ceballos is more of a prospect still in my eyes so he'll probably be the one we end up with 😂

It isn't what I'd do, but if it is what Klopp wants i will put my faith in his decision. We all know Klopp likes to swarm the midfield with high energy rather than control it with discipline, so it's not a surprise really that we've shown no interest in a proper defensively minded player.


2.) 27 Feb 2018 08:49:44
We know one midfielder will be Keita who I think will be top class. Then only Klopp can decide how to balance the other 2 players. I agree with a playmaker in most games but agains't the better teams we could get over run. The club has had plenty of time to address this issue so I am excited to see our new look midfield next year.


3.) 27 Feb 2018 09:15:25
It is Jorginho that Klopp wants and he will get his man.


4.) 27 Feb 2018 10:06:51
Fingers crossed Harry, but don't get your hopes up too much. He's one of Napoli's key players and they don't sell their players cheap. Plus we offended them very recently by offering about half of what they wanted for Koulibaly!


5.) 27 Feb 2018 10:37:08
Napoli are impossible sometimes, if we thought RB Leipzig was tough just wait! But if the player is looking to move and Manchester United doesn't bid Pogba money for him we might have a tiny tiny chance even though personally i doubt it a bit.


6.) 27 Feb 2018 11:50:04
MK,

They will have to sell him if they lure Torriera from Sampdoria. He would cost big money and Napoli will sacrifice one of their star player. Jorginho has not signed new contract. He won’t be cheap but you don’t get good players for cheap! Do you?


7.) 27 Feb 2018 12:55:05
Harry, Jorginho is a fine player, no doubt BUT as Nostradamus has said, good luck dealing with the notorious Napoli owner De Laurentis. The guy is a head case and does NOT sell any of his players esp. his key players if you don't meet his release clause (if there is one) like he did w/ Juve and PSG when they sold Higuiain and Cavani for a pot of gold in both instances. Even if you met it, he still may not sell esp. now that they are on the brink of winning the Serie A and becoming a force under the ever-impressive Sarri. Not sure about this one.


8.) 27 Feb 2018 16:31:23
BRover,
Are there any good, humble, kind hearted owners out there mate 😁😁😁. Nobody would want to sell their star player for a less sum. Ask Barcelona about FSG over Coutinho! We made them sweat blood 😁😁😁. Pay the price and sign the player!


9.) 27 Feb 2018 21:19:05
We’ve lost Coutinho, losing Can and as above Henderson’s injuries are a issue and we could see Milner leave also.

That could leave Henderson (albeit with the injury issues), Wijnaldum, Lallana, Chamberlain and Keita. Big call, but ideally I’d like to see Lemar, Jorghino and Meyer or Brandt.

Both Brandt and Lemar can cover forward positions if needed too. I think Ings is likely to leave too which only leaves Solanke as cover.


 

 

16 Feb 2018 06:57:31
Hey all,

The recent rumours have got me thinking about our GK situation next year. I know we'v spoken about this at length but it seems somethings actually being done about it now 😱.
Karius has looked decent since coming back in for every game, but now rumours are surfacing that we are after an early deal for Allison of Roma? I think it's a given that Ward, bogdan and Migs will be off or at least two of them. My q is that is that is Allison that much of an upgrade in what we have? I mean Karius hasn't been given that much of a chance and he has looked decent, and whilst I haven't seen Allison play an actual game, the Vids I've seen of him include his concedes, and I'm not being funny, but for the rumoured world record GK fee that's being touted for him, I'd expect a little better! Is he really as good as he's being made up to be? If he does end up here no dramas i'll Support him and I'm not hung up on money, but I'm kinda hoping that Karius proves his worth and we don't need him!


1.) 16 Feb 2018 08:10:05
Well we will be 70 million better off if Karius proves his worth so he better impress!
Not sure what these Allison rumors will do for Karius's confidence though.

{Ed002's Note - Put aside the Alisson rumours and think about the real interest in Navas.}


2.) 16 Feb 2018 08:31:31
Smokescreen ed.


3.) 16 Feb 2018 08:35:09
Keylor Navas? Costa Rica's very own Migs?
No thanks Ed002. I'd rather not think about another shocking GK joining LFC lest it gives me more bouts if migraine. And I hope the club don't sign Navas. Rather keep Karius as No.1 and Ward as backup.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp out then.}


4.) 16 Feb 2018 08:39:55
Klopp should stay.
More like No Keylor Navas Please.

{Ed002's Note - It is Klopp that wants Navas and Klopp that purchased Karius. Don't worry, the dfans will screw up any chance of it happening with their usual spewing of hate over past, present and future players.}


5.) 16 Feb 2018 08:56:25
I still don't get the Navas hate. He made a phenomenal save against Mbappe the other night to keep Madrid in the Champions league. Mbappe hit a low driven daisy cutter of a shot from about 8 yards out that came straight through a defenders legs, and somehow Navas managed to react (despite seeing it late) to get down and get a solid glove on it.

Navas is no DDG or Buffon, but he is still a top class keeper. Probably top 20 in the world for me. Madrid just want to get DDG because he is arguably the best. I just can't understand the hate. Just because Madrid want to sell Navas he's a bad keeper? The same Madrid who sold Ozil, sold Alonso, sold Khedeira, sold Makelele, sold Higuain, sold Pepe, sold Morata (twice! ) and want to sell Kroos? Yeah they never sell top players do they 🙄

For me, Navas is at the same level as the likes of Courtois or Lloris. Not the very top echelons (Buffon, DDG, Oblak, Neuer etc) but the next level below that for sure. He has the ability to make unbelievable saves, he is decent with his feet, he is comfortable on crosses, he can play in a side where he doesn't have a lot to do whilst maintaining concentration, and he can play behind a high line. Even DDG has dropped some absolute clangers, and every keeper will do occassionally. Navas is certainly one of the more reliable keepers in Europe though.

It will be a huge shame if he is the man Klopp wants, and vitriol from the fans scuppers the deal, as it has dome in the past.


6.) 16 Feb 2018 08:59:04
I feel sorry for you ed002,you tell us who we are interested in and get abused, fatboy from bolton spills crap rumours and he the king lol. i only go by what you eds say as you know what going on. thank you for your hard work as it is appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet.}


7.) 16 Feb 2018 09:17:53
Navas is a very good keeer with bags of experience. People are saying we need a solid spine- well that would start with having a top-notch keeper who has been there and done it.
Managed well you get Navas playing with Karius learning off him and ready to step in when required, and longer term when Navas stops playing.

Good move for me
Navas
VvD
Keita
Firmino

Not a bad spine?


8.) 16 Feb 2018 09:49:41
Very solid spine in my opinion Agger. If we can get in another top centre back this summer, and Hendo can stay fully fit, the spine looks even stronger still!

Navas is not the answer, MK IMO. And this is coming from someone who has been watching Navas since his Levante days, who watched every one of his games at the WC where IMO, was neck and neck with Neuer as the best GK in the competition so trust me, it kills me to say this.

Navas has regressed a lot since the last couple of years, He is a brilliant shot stopper and played in a high line with Costa Rica at the last WC (the poster calling him Costa Rican Migs is talking nonsense, really) so he has some qualities.

However, he has become very inconsistent, does not command his area like yes, Karius does and is worse on crosses than Karius. He is older and not getting better, IMO and is not the answer if we wanna upgrade on Karius. Apart from having experience, he is not an upgrade on him. In fact, Karius will have more exp. in the PL than him were he to come and we will be right here again when he makes mistakes during his maturation period in the PL (cos all GK's do) and the slaughtering will begin. If Klopp wants to live thru that again and gets him, that's his cross to bear, either way.

Navas is certainly a step up on Mignolet and has a wealth of experience at the very top level. I would be happy to see him and Karius fight it out for the number 1 jersey if as ed2 says this is who we are after.

Agreed carragold.

Navas will not come if he feels he has to battle Karius for the no. 1 spot, IMO. No player or GK goes from being first choice are RM winning trophies including leagues and CL's (he has two of them) to fighting for his place vs an up and coming talent. That simply does not make any sense and I doubt that would interest him. Just saying.


13.) 16 Feb 2018 16:26:42
He wouldn't be battling Karius. He's miles better. Karius has string two good games together in 20 months at the club. Navas has won back to back Champions league titles.

Navas is still a ucl winning gk, he, presumably, took the shirt from casilias. I would be glad if he signed.

Fekir looks good and I trust Klopp and the scouts recently but I’m always a little wary of players coming for other leagues, especially France, Italy and Netherlands.

That is actually a pretty good shout.

ACL are potential career Enders depending on the severity. I know because that’s what happened to me and I had to leave the military. I have had surgery and physio therapy etc for years and still I cannot run more than 4-5 miles without the pain becoming unbearable, cold weather and going up or down too many step in a short period o time is also difficult. And all this was after a long period of diagnosis which can be difficult. I suspect Ox will have a lot better care than I did but it really can have a massive effect, especially for players that rely on a bit of pace. Again I used to be be pretty rapid, but those days are long long gone.

I think Redmond from Southampton would be a good shout to cover both wings.

I think that’s a little of red tinted glasses to be honest Ben. If he was playing for UTD we’d all be laughing and calling him a donkey, but all of a sudden because he’s with us he’s full of potential and is the next best thing? Well that may be and maybe he will come good (obviously I hope so) but I have seen nothing from him to suggest he can impact a game coming off the bench, let alone challenge for the starting striker position which is the sort of quality we need behind Bobby. He’s not quick, has an awful touch and doesn’t hold the ball up well enough for a fella his second size. I know he hasn’t started often, but he has missed plenty of good opportunities in the games he has played this season. Clearly has not happened for him this year, so I hope he can kick on, step up in preseason and really push for more starts, however I’m simply saying that I he leaves this summer we won’t miss him.

Agreed Ed025 I have been very disappointed with him this season following a decent, if not spectacular first year for us, but he has looked more positive since Ox was injured. Don’t think he’ll be staring much next year, but seems a good option to have around the squad. Comes across as a top bloke as well.

{Ed025's Note - hes been poor for me westwood and has struggled this season but good luck to him if he gets the gig mate..

Fear not Prince Hendo. We have nothing to worry about. If we win fantastic. If we lose, well, nobody expected us to get this far so quickly, nobody will be overly surprised, plus the run we’ve had, showcasing the football we play to Europe will attract more top players. It will be great to win another trophy of course because that’s what important, but in the long term, we are already winning.

I would even want the Mancs to win rather than the Spanish to be fair WGS. I know there’s a fierce rivalry but there should also be respect, which I have for the Mancs, although grudgingly.
