Well this is awkward, feel free to share on Twitter, WhatsApp etc with any rags who pipe up...
So just to redress the balance I tried quoting this little gem on the DM comments section under the ‘exclusive’ they penned about us. They have chosen to moderate this article and as you’d expect the Neanderthals have been given free pass yet none of my comments have seen the light of day.
Seeing as they printed the original article about the rags pinching the ‘new Totti’ off Roma and giving his dad a gardening job by the corner flag you’d have thought they’d have been happy to stand by it.
If there are still any anti agenda theorists out there Shirley this would be the final example that swings you?

Going back in time, Duncan Edwards had been associated with the Wolves player development system for some time before Busby stepped in and offered to buy a house for his parents if he signed for United.
Edwards was a far better player that Giggs ever was, although his career was cut short by the Munich air crash.

My father was a Wolves supporter and hated United for that action. I am sure that this was repeated with other members of the Busby Babes.
Wolves were a great team in those days if I recall and at that time there was no obvious reason why a lad from Dudley would want to go to the rags rather than play with Billy Wright.
Interesting to compare with the players and families who were shamefully kicked oout of club houses.

Reminds me. I used to buy Private Eye at my local shop. The woman there used to slip it inside my newspaper!
Off topic slightly but the other day l watched something about 30 years of HIGNFY on BBCi player. It was interesting to see how Ian Hislop ticked over the years.

MHahaha Big Father L, heading off to Maine Road every other Saturday on his bike
He married my sister and prayed that the marriage would be blessed with lots of City fans which didn't quite work.
His support of City was mentioned a lot in a documentary about one of the Nevilles getting married. I think it was that wedding where the Beckhams deliberately stole the limelight from the bride with the ostentatious outfits they wore.

I’ve had to call the chief sports writer at The Times out on Twitter just now. See screenshots below...

Yep players should curb there team celebrations, but the media should watch how what to go hard on! There jobs rely on football being played if there wasn’t any football 90% of the media be twiggerling there fingers at home and may lose there jobs also it keeps the listening figures up in these radio stations! They seem oblivious that Every corner every set piece there is around 18/20 players all close together and if any player has it you could get it as much from that that hugging it’s that contractable.

I know let’s cancel football all together hey media.

A lot of the #TopReds flapping their gums today seem to have never heard of Louis Edwards and World in Action...
Interesting interview here from last summer with the acclaimed film director Paul Greengrass, who was behind the Granada TV investigation.
Turns out Edwards was not only bribing the families of young players and supplying rotten meat to the poorest children in Manchester and Cheshire, he was also cynically ripping off the families of Munich disaster victims
In a way it is so novel as no way on earth would the BBC or ITV do something similar in today's climes.

It’s a good job MOTD didn’t show Jose and Scotty boy before the game with their arms around each other hugging or the Fulham or Spurs players hugging.
