Hi ed002, is there any interest in junior firpo or ferland mendy this summer and if so which clubs are they?

{Ed002's Note - (a) Arsenal but seen as far too expensive; Manchester City but they have a stepped back - but the player has said that is where he wants to move to; Real Madrid - was first choice but that was dropped when the player said he wanted Manchester City. (b) PSG held talks whilst discussing another player and he is now first choice for Real Madrid.}

Hey ed, anyone interested in upamecano?

{Ed002's Note - No, prior interest of Bayern Munich and Manchester United went with a gigantic asking price.}

Hi Ed002, hope you're well. Are any clubs interested in signing Jose Mourinho as their manager? Thanks.

This one is for Ed001 in particular - you said in the liverpool vs barcelona match review that Messi is not the greatest of all time so i was wondering who you think that it is? All the best.

{Ed001's Note - the best I have seen live is Maradona. If he was in that Barca team, at his peak, he would have dragged them singlehandedly over the line. Messi plays on perfect pitches against players who can't kick him. Maradona had people trying to break his legs in every match while playing on cabbage patches and could still do the same skills as Messi. He was miles better.}

Thanks ED!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome. I know people always say that the old days were the best, but I disagree in many respects, however I have to say that players had to have more skill in the past to cope with the pitches and the tackling. Players have become more refined rather than better but the game is much better for the changes to pitches. I do miss the hard crunching tackle though I understand the reasoning for removing it.}

Ed001 I speak to a few older people and whenever this topic comes up George best is always mentioned as I'm too young to have seen him what did you make of him? I'm not suggesting your old btw ๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed001's Note - before my time, I only knew him as a person when he was a client for my uncle after retiring from playing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2019 13:32:14
Slightly off topic Ed001 but what era of football do you think has been the best? I know each era has had its share of candidates for best ever ranging from Di Stefano and Puskas, to Pele, to Maradona and Cruyff to Messi and Ronaldo.

Personally I most enjoyed 90's/ early 00's football. Kind of felt like the last era where men played football, tackling was allowed and an art and there were some great, great players in every position of the pitch. I think a 1-11 from that era would likely be the greatest.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2019 13:42:40
I think maybe a little earlier, 80's/ 90s myself. But is that due to our ages?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2019 08:55:05
Ed001, would you say that Messi is the 2nd best after Maradona?

{Ed001's Note - no, I wouldn't say he was in the top 10. People only think that because he plays on perfect pitches against opponents unable to tackle him or he does a triple roll. Though of course the media never likes to admit he is a diver, even though he is a horrible little cheat.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2019 11:32:07
I personally thought that Ronaldinho was the most talented footballer of all time even though he never reached his potential. Did you rate Dinho, Ed?

{Ed001's Note - talent wise he was incredible but he never achieved his true potential sadly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2019 12:56:10
Yeah, his demise due to external factors was really sad.

{Ed001's Note - not really it was his choice. No sympathy for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2019 19:32:57
I don't think he even cared much either. Never seemed like someone who worries about stuff like trophies and success.

{Ed001's Note - true.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2019 09:25:05
Who's ya top 5 best of all time ed? Can stretch to 10 if ya have time.

{Ed001's Note - it changes depending on who I have watched last to be honest. Maradona and Cruyff would be top 2, purely because I have only seen Pele in the 70 World Cup, when he was past his best, but still good enough to be top 3. And, as I have been researching the 1970 Brazil team, I would probably put Tostao in and any of Gerson, Rivellino or Jairzinho.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 12:44:26
Well the two certainly signed off in style. Ed001 what are your thoughts on Ribery and Robben as players? seem to have been around forever.

{Ed001's Note - Robben was a truly great player, everyone knew what he was going to do, but he was so good he could do it anyway. That shift inside and shoot move was seemingly unstoppable, as no full-back ever manager to stop him pulling it off.

Ribery I am not so convinced of. He was a good player, but he had a few attitude problems, was selfish on the ball at times and lacked the top class quality of Robben.

Both players were also a bit injury prone for my liking.}

Hey Ed - can you share any further light on Jose's next destination as of yet please or at least his options? Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is not an appropriate time to discuss his options that he has or others that will become available whilst many of the clubs who will be changing manager this summer (putting aside the English sides the likes of Inter Milan, PSG, Roma, Milan, Bayern Munich, Barcelona (they may wait a year to get the person they want), Juventus, Lyon and others will be looking at coaching changes).}

Ok thanks Ed makes sense.

I thought PSG would stick with Tuchel, Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}

18 May 2019 20:44:47
Apologies Ed002 if you feel offended, but would it be possible to do a Chelsea transfer targets post on this page?
The curiosity's getting really annoying at this point. I won't tell anyone else if needed. :)

{Ed002's Note - Not a chance.}

Hi ed002.
I hope all is good with you.
Just a quick question .
Have any clubs shown interest in icardi.
Inter have been linked with a few cf and with the serious baggage he has i'm sure any interested parties must be aware of the risks and potential madness that comes with him.

{Ed002's Note - Napoli, Atletico, Juventus, Real Madrid and a couple of others.}

Hi ed hope you are well. Who is interested in Ziyech?

{Ed002's Note - Hakim Ziyech (RW/AM) concerns over one particular issue (which has already made a couple of clubs step back) will end the interest of Arsenal; Everton (a Ronald Koeman target in the summer of 2016 that Everton could look again to - but could be expensive); Inter (not first choice); Lyon (but interest is dependent on another matter); Manchester City (one of the clubs to step away because of an issue); Real Madrid (also stepped away because of the issue); Roma; Spurs (if CE leaves); Bayern Munich (who are being pushed to take him after peviously turning interest elsewhere).}

Hi eds, I've tried searching but get no results. Not sure if its an error because he is bound to be mentioned somewhere, but I tried another obvious name and it worked. Sancho, anything happening with him? I think he should stay and keep being a star man adored by fans for now, he is only young still lots of ups and downs to come. I just really hope he doesn't end up at United. Really like the potential of Lookman and Reiss Nelson too, they have a flash of magic in them, and a burst of pace, are they staying put? A lot of younger players seem really inpatient. Thanks for all the unbelievable selfless work eds!

{Ed002's Note - The situation has been explained and you don't seem to have a specific question just a list a random names.}

I was wondering if there's any interest in Pione Sisto from Celta Vigo? He's playing playing less and less this season and his level seems to have gotten quite a bit down, but I think I recall interest in him from a few big clubs a year ago?

{Ed002's Note - Southampton is the one side who have had sustained interest going all the way back to his time at Midtjylland and it was only them that sustained it after he move dto Spain. But it has long gone now.}

Ed what is happening with Luca jovic? What teams are interested and where is the most likely destination? Madrid?

{Ed002's Note - Eintract Frankfurt have agreed to purchase him and they are open to selling him on - there are several interested sides, but I don't answer "most likely" questions.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 May 2019 18:06:40
Ed002, are the reports that Madrid have agreed a deal for Jovic true?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed, Real Madrid remain keen and would like the transfer agreed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 May 2019 11:08:50
Ed could you tell us of interest in Ndombele?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester City, PSG and Real Madrid have all had enquiries turned away.}

Hey Eds,

Thoughts on a potential move for Martin Oedegard to Ajax. Any truth to the rumours? Do think it is a good fit? Could he aim for a bigger club, like Arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - Two years in Ajax seems like a nifty deal.}
