Follow me on Twitter @Eddie_Edmonds

My name is Simon and I hail from the United Kingdom - England to be precise. I attend the University of Leeds where I study Classical Civilisations with a module in Creative Writing.

I'm a die hard football fan - that's football as in the game you actually play with your feet, not "football" where you're playing Rugby in pads and a helmet like a bunch of pansys - no I kid the Yanks. I've supported Manchester United and the England National team for 18 years.

I also regularly watch my local sides, Maidstone United and Gillingham play.

I enjoy writing greatly, and would love to pursue it further in the future.

I am 21 years of age.

    Hmm, possibly, but I think Pogba was SAF biggest mistake. One thing I know for sure is Pogba left for the money and lack of first-team action. He wanted 25k a week and more first team opportunities but SAF refused. How can a manager with his experience pass on a talented player like that and he let him go for free ? Now, Pogba has won the 2013 Golden Boy award, this means he is the best young player in Europe...Ouch what a Big mistake and I hope it doesn't happened again.

    Btw, what are your thoughts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Cardiff City manager? Is he making the right move by becoming Cardiff City manager ? And Do you think he can keep the Cardiff City in the Premier League or...?

    Imo, Ole Gunnar is going to become a Great manager and will be a success as Cardiff City Manager. Oh, he also has been marked as a potential future Man Utd Manager / Replacement for David Moyes.

    He managed the Man Utd reserves 3 years from 2008 until 2011. Then he managed the Norwegian side Molde, whom he played for before signing for the Red Devils. In his time with the club, Solskjaer won a trophy in each season, capturing the Norwegian Premier League title Two times in 2011 and 2012, as well as the Norwegian Cup in 2013.

    Now, Ole Gunnar has left The Norwegian Champions Molde to take over at Cardiff, which is 17th EPL. And what a wonderful start, he has won the fans over after being in charge for just two days as his side beat Newcastle United 2-1 in the FA Cup.

    Thus far in the 2014 January transfer window, Ole Gunner has completed his second signing as Cardiff City manager with the capture of 23 year old Wolff Eikrem & 18 year old Wonderkid Mats Moller Daehli (Ex Talented Man Utd Players) And yet David Moyes didn't sign anyone lol! Oh, we've got Fellaini! haha

    If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was manager at United, I'm sure he will bring back Daehli, Eikrem, Pogba, and Morrison.. ;D

    Yeah, it's fine man, I just felt reallly guilty about it and all :/ Yeap, the number of trolls has increased so much lately... And they're all "United fans"...
    I did disagree with the players you mentioned in your article, but hopefully my comment didn't seem as wild as the others'!

    Anyways, who do you see us getting this January? I don't wanna ask someone who he wants to get, everyone has the same answers anyway haha. Do you see us getting someone this month?

    If you are a football fanatic like I am ..Try answer this.. If you fail
    You're actually one of the Glory Hunter

    The glory hunter test.

    Have you always supported Man Utd?
    Are they your local team?
    Did you start supporting that team after the season ended or during?
    When was the last time you went to their stadium?
    Have you ever turned off the TV or left a match early because you were losing?
    Have you got any of the club shirts?
    What is the reason you supported the team?
    How long have you supported the team for?
    And finally...
    Do you ever envy other teams and wish you supported that team?

    Man I'm sorry, I don't know why but I kinda feel guilt for that guy questioning your fandom and "being a glory hunter"... That glory hunter test thing (LOL), he's asked me that too...

    I think he's been questioning you too because I've been outwardly disagreeing with him in a lot of points (in your most recent article) and because he disagrees w/ you... For that I'd really like to apologize

    God's sake those plastic fans are just embarrassing as a United fan. Sadly their number has been growing the past few weeks :/

    Hey Simon..my favourite line up...what do you think ???

    _____________De Gea____________
    Rafael-----Evans-----Smalling----Fabio
    ------------Carrick-------Jones--------------
    --------------------Rooney--------------------
    Valencia---------Rvp-------Kagawa------

    By the way ...what do you think about Baines(Everton), Ross Barkley(Everton), Alex Sandro(Porto), Cabaye(Newcastle), Koke(Atletico Madrid) and Everton Ribeiro (Cruzeiro)...???
    United have been heavily linked with this players.. I think baines,cabaye and everton ribeiro are among the most realistic options for January..What do you think, my friend?
