Hello, I know he probably won't be leaving anytime soon but I'm wondering who is interested in Kieran tierney of Celtic, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - just about everyone is interested, Manchester United in particular.}

Hi eds (and everyone else)

I have a question about Psg - are you able to share any rumours on upcoming transfers (in or out)? Specifically would like to know if there is interest in Di Maria, Ben Area, Draxler, or Lucas Moura, and if they have any replacements in mind.

{Ed002's Note - PSG have a number of players available including Angel di Maria, Javier Pastore, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Lucas Moura, Julian Draxler, Hatem Ben Arfa, Jese Rodriguez and Thiago Silva. They want to keep Cavani, Marquinhos and Verratti - but we will see and the expectation is that Cavani will move on. Goncalo Guedes may return from loan or could be moved on given the interest of a couple of high-profile sides. Financially they need to get committed sales of some of these players by June 30 in order to ease concerns over FFP and they are being offered around. There are some complications, like Draxler saying he wants to stay or return to Germany - thereby for now ruling out a move to England. They have interest in a number of high-profile players but need first to clear the decks a bit - and much will depend what happens on the management front. They will look to a goalkeeper and have shared interest in de Gea. Their interest in Alexis Sanchez is well documented and they could look to the likes of Phillipe Coutinho if he cannot get the move he wants. They have spoken to about Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but are astonished at the asking price, and they havealready spoken to Chelsea about a player. A move for Javier Mascherano is possible as is Joao Mario at the right price. Ferran Torres has attracted a lot of interest from a number of high-end sides including PSG, but I think a move to Paris is unliukely.}

I know you're not keen on answering questions related to Chelsea, but Hopefully I won't do any harm by asking if you feel like telling which player? Perhaps Kante or Hazard? I understand it if you don't wanna tell :)

{Ed002's Note - It is of no consequence. The Chelsea supporters have zero interest in anything I have to say - and that is just fine.}

Hi Eds,
Just saw that Dybalas 24 today. Such a fantastic player at still a very young age. I was wondering is there much interest and is he ready to leave Juve this summer. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, but not specisfic.}

Sad to see Ireland haven't qualified, I've always had a soft spot for them. Have to say though, Robbie Brady is desperately overrated. He really is awful. Poor set piece taker and too slow. Also don't see what Daryl Murphy offers to the team. Well done to Denmark anyway.

Hi Ed001

Just wanted your opinion of Emery as a manager. With the alleged falling out with neymar etc, there are rumours that he may be on his way out.

I've always rated him, particularly at Sevilla, but I feel he's underachieved so far at PSG and had a poor spell at Spartak where he was expected to succeed. He can be inconsistent domestically and, for example, in that famous Barcelona game, but overall looks a very good manager.

Do you think if he is to leave, we could see him in England sooner rather than later?

{Ed001's Note - I very much expect him in England, he is a very good manager but he has a problem dealing with egos. He is all about preparation and tactics, rather than man-management. Neymar, for instance, is one of many big egos who have thrown a strop about having to watch so many videos of opponents.}

Hi eds001 hope your well mate just wondering what you think of the appointment of moyes and your opinion of him as a manager. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - personally I think it was a big mistake. The reason he failed at Man Utd and Real Sociedad was that his training methods are 20+ years out of date. He has not moved on from when he arrived at Everton. I just hope he doesn't do what he did at Sunderland and compound the problem by destroying the confidence of all the players and bringing a bunch of well over the hill former Everton players in. You have the players there, they just need organising and to up their game.

In the short term he should do the job of avoiding relegation, but he won't play good football and he is not the long term answer. It just seems an odd choice, he is a poor man's Sam Allardyce. Considering you had Allardyce and the owners decided he was not the answer, why would you go for the inferior version?

The big issue though is the players, will they get behind him? If they buy into it then you will be ok, but you haven't had all those years of struggle Everton had been going through when they appointed him. After all the 'dogs of war' years etc, he was a step forward for them at the time. Will the players feel that way at West Ham or will they see him as a dinosaur who had his time?}

yeah I can understand where you are coming from I preferably would have had big sam or if we could have got Gian Piero Gasperini but that would be a longer contract and the owners are ridiculous I can't see us going anywhere soon with them at the top.

{Ed001's Note - Gasperini would have been a great appointment.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2017 17:09:30
do you have any inclng who moyes would be looking at signing in January, surely fellani has got to be on his hit list.

{Ed001's Note - Fellaini is after a move away from England and no I don't know but he has only just stepped foot in the door!}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2017 23:27:51
Fellaini doesn't have long lefy on his contract and yeah i can understand he has just come in but usually moat managers have their favourites haha harry redknapp for example haha.

{Ed001's Note - yes they do but Fellaini thinks he is better than a relegation battler.}

Ed02, are any clubs showing strong interest in Arthur of Gremio?

Been one or two reports that Barcelona and United are scouting him.

{Ed002's Note - I am aware of Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Barcelona looking at Arthur but I know nothing of Manchester United looking.}

Ed's I know it's far-fetched but with the rumours already starting about Neymar wanting out of PSG and Ronaldo wanting out of Madrid, given the previous interest of both players from the respective clubs. Would it be out the question for deals to be done in the summer or beyond?

{Ed002's Note - They are unrelated but Neymar to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 is far from out of the question. Ronaldo will probably not be of interest to PSG any longer as they look to a new coach and other players.}

Hello ed1

With many clubs looking for a manager or looking likely to change managers, do you think Roger Schmidt might end up back in Europe any time soon?

Also what do you make of him as a manager?


{Ed001's Note - I think he has priced himself out of the European market unless he gets the boot to be honest.

He played some good football at times, but I never felt like he had that tactical knowhow that would lead him to be a top class manager. Just seemed a bit short of top rank.}

Hello Ed. Any interest in Malcom from Bordeaux? I can see that United at some point were interested? Any other clubs that have interest in him? I think he's a player with a very bright future :)

Greetings eds, I was wondering, with the continual rise of Pochettino, if any of Europes elite clubs have been sniffing around him with a view to offering him a position? And am also wondering if you have any sort of knowledge of whether Pochettino himself would be keen to make a move or if he is settled at Spurs? I'm only asking as I've been impressed with how he has done at Spurs (transfers, tactics, all aspects really) and was wondering if any of Europes big guns may take a punt on him. Thanks for any information you're able to share.

Hi Eds, just want to ask about a couple of players who I like. Vincent Aboubakar, Hugo Mallo, Fekir of Lyon and our old boy Suso. I think these players are good enough to play for a higher level club than they are currently at, any teams sniffing around or even just keeping track?

{Ed002's Note - Besiktas has an option on Vincent Aboubakar but Newcastle, Swansea and West Ham all looked at him. I am not aware of interest in Mallo. PSG, Arsenal, Inter and Manchester City all showed an interest in Fekir before he became beset by injury problems. His return to form last year attracted Real Madrid scout to watch him on a number of occasions including in European competition. Atletico Madrid has also watched Fekir last season. Don't be surprised if Arsenal look again if Oezil goes. Sevilla and Juventus had both shown an interest in Suso and he was indeed discussed between MIlan and Chelsea during brief talks about two other players. Atletico Madrid saw him as an alternative to Calhanoglu who went on to join Milan. Spurs and Napoli have also watched the player but Milan he signed a new contract.}

Hahai have been slowly making my way through them. I enjoyed the overrated managers one there was a few controvesial ones on there i must say but for all good reasons!

{Ed001's Note - glad you enjoy them mate. I am looking to do underrated managers next. Though that is a tough one, there are not that many, the media seems to love to build them all up, so they can then drag them down.}

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 16:45:19
couple more if you would like to add them to your list, Santiago Ascacibar and carles alena?

haha not surprised must be busy with games and site and what not, here's a few questions for you, how any games do you go see a week, I suppose that would be depending on which country you are in at the time? and who do you support? also in your opinion of the games you see who would you say the best up and coming youngster is?

{Ed001's Note - I don't get to go to see games any more mate. Ed002 is the one who does the travelling, I am mostly stuck these days at home writing and researching! I initially set up the first site because my then-girlfriend got pregnant and, along with a 30% pay cut I had to take with my job as the company was in trouble, it meant I was not going to be able to afford to go to games any more at Anfield. Since starting the sites I have barely been to any games, then illness forced me to find a country with more sun and sea air, the football here is just not of a level that counts as watching proper football! I am hoping to get along to watch Fujairah this season, with Maradona coaching, but they are not even in the top flight of a weak league.

The best up and coming youngster? Gabriel Jesus is a bit special but Pietro Pellegri is the one I would say is a real up and coming superstar. I think he is only 16.

Ooops nearly forgot, I am a Liverpool fan mate. Though you would probably have guessed from the Anfield mention.}

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Oct 2017 19:45:46
Ah right that's in UAE so must be massive change in climate that's if you were in uk before! You both seem to know a huge amount of knowledge on the game and player so thanks for input on the sites doesn't go a miss. Jesus is a gem i'm suprised the transfer fee was so little in this day and age seeing as ehat others are going for. I read a lot more of the up and comig players compared to the players already at the top.

{Ed001's Note - it comes from being obsessed mate. My grandad always used to say I would stop and watch if there was a game on in the park.}

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Oct 2017 10:00:33
Hello, has there been any interest in Thorgan Hazard, every time I have watched BMG he has look fantastic seems to be bigger then his brother is there any particular reason Chelsea didn't take him back or was it he just wanted to play football and wanted more game time?

{Ed002's Note - Borussia Monchengladbach's Thorgan Hazard has been of a little interest to Leicester but he has no interest in moving their. Barcelona, Lyon, Arsenal and Spurs all had scouts watch him Chelsea had a "buy back" option that expired at the end of 2016 but it could only have been exercised if Monchengladbach were to look to sell, and of course the player was open to a return. Chelsea did not look to do that as they knew the player would want to be playing regularly and that was something they couldn't offer.

Thorgan Hazard thinks brother Kylian is the pick of the three.}

Ed02 is there any interest in Yusuf yazici and abdulkadir omur? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid put an offer on the table to Trabzonspor's for Yusuf Yazıcı that would see the transfer take place in the summer of 2018. Everton, Monaco, Manchester United, Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund have attended games to watch the player but none have, to my knowledge, made any offer.

Trabzonspor's Abdulkadir Omur is subject of sustained interest from Bayern Munich and FC Nürnberg and both were looking to trying to strike some sort of deal for him once he turned 18 but he signed a professional contract with Trabzonspor. Bayern have however made a very significant offer for the player that may well prove to be acceptable. Atletico Madrid made an offer that would see him stay in Trabzon until the summer of 2019 if an agreement could be agreed between the parties now - but this included only a small upfront payment and was deemed unacceptable. Benfica, Arsenal and Monaco are some of the clubs the Turkish club say have watched him.}

Hello Ed01

I see on a different page you stated that Heynckes is a stop gap.

Is that until they think that Nagelsmann will be ready to take over? Or do they have someone else lined up?

I'm guessing if it's a stop gap, none of the ones currently out of work are being considered for the role? Tuchel, Blanc, Sousa etc.

{Ed001's Note - I don't remember mentioning anything about Heynckes but yes he is only a stop gap, with the likelihood being Nagelsmann coming in to replace at the end of the season.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

05 Oct 2017 13:27:45
Sorry mate just realised it was Ed02.

Do you think Nagelsmann will step up to plate from what you've seen?

A lot more egos in the Bayern dressing room, a few that are older than him and have won a lot in the game. Would surely be a massive step up despite how well he's done at Hoffenheim.

{Ed001's Note - difficult to say, he certainly seems to have everything else needed, but managing egos is incredibly difficult. It might just be a little too early for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2017 12:02:27
Has anyone shown of any interest in Leon goretzka of Schalke 04?

{Ed002's Note - Leon Goretzka was of interest to Southampton but Schalke said they had intention of selling in the short-term but he has been reluctant to listen to offers of a new contract and they are now willing to listen to offers. Juventus were struggling to get their first choice option in midfield for this past summer and are thought that they may be returning to Leon Goretzka next year. Again, Arsenal might well look to him once more. Spurs, Manchester City (waning) and Bayern Munich (new coach will have an input) are also still looking to Goretzka as a possible option. Any Liverpool Liverpool had will have gone with the Keita agreement and Barcelona dropped their prior interest.}
