ED002, if you don't mind answering this question, but who do you think would be the ideal viable RW option for Utd to sign?

Thanks in advance. Although I appreciate that you maybe wiling to answer this question for obvious reasons.

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - Brooks, Douglas Costa, Bernardeschi, Sancho.}

1.) 17 Sep 2020 20:23:16
Do you think United would be silly to pay the asking price and fees for Sancho Ed or is he fair value all told? How do you rate him as a player?

{Ed002's Note - He is a decent player but costs are well beyond what is reasonable.}

2.) 17 Sep 2020 20:45:32
Why we chasing a player all window fully knowing we ain't goinf to pay the money.

3.) 17 Sep 2020 20:56:13
Thanks ED002.

4.) 17 Sep 2020 21:42:05
Out of those options I hope we get Brooks if we can't get Sancho.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 03:11:53
I’d definitely be happy with Brooks to be honest - he’s a talent imo.

{Ed0666's Note - really? Please elaborate on why?

6.) 18 Sep 2020 08:48:33
From what I've seen, Brooks isn't a winger and I would choose Sancho, Costa, Bernardeschi over him in that order.

7.) 18 Sep 2020 09:07:48
Seen some rumours today that we may compete with Liverpool for Sarr, probably just means Sarr is heading to Scouseland.

8.) 18 Sep 2020 09:42:11
I’d take none of the above if the Sancho deal can’t be done and coach Daniel James better / promote a youngster/ recall Chong.

9.) 18 Sep 2020 10:07:29
Brooks being injured last season ultimately cost Bournemouth their EPL status. He is by far their best and most creative player. Bournemouth were comfortable mid table with him in the starting 11 and then got relegated by 1 point with him out of the team through injury.

He isn't a "winger" in the traditional sense, he is a player who plays more like a wide No.10, he is creative and comes inside to work with the midfielders and forwards to create chances, he is clever at finding half a yard of space and using that to find teammates to create good chances.

In many ways he adds something different to what we have, we have Greenwood who'll cut inside to score, Dan James who can stay wide and stretch play what we need is someone who can come inside and create.

Sancho obviously offers that as well as goalscoring ability. But then that is what Sancho is £108m and Brooks would be around £40-50m.

Brooks offers us something different to what we have while being better than Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Mata.

If I'm honest if we can't sign Sancho then the best front three we could have going into this season would be Greenwood, Martial and Rashford. For me Greenwood is going to be a top top player, maybe not at the Messi and Ronaldo level but certainly at the Bale, Neymar, Lewandowski, Aguero and Hazard level. He is got 17 goals and 3 assists last season. His debut season in a struggling side. There are only a few players I'd be happy to see starting ahead of him, Sancho being one, Mbappe might be another. But that level of talent. Otherwise I'd want Greenwood starting.

With that in mind if we can't sign Sancho then what we should be looking for is a top level rotational option who adds quality in depth and something different to what we have.

Players like Brooks adds that. Others could be Calvin Stengs, Viktor Tsygankov, Moussa Diaby, Leon Bailey or Bryan Mbeumo.

{Ed001's Note - that was not the reason they got relegated. Not even close. There were far more problems than an injury to him.}

10.) 18 Sep 2020 10:08:45
Eric, James is predominantly a LW and one could see how out of sorts he was throughout the season when played on the other side. Promote a youngster simply stands for proscratinate the need for a RW for yet another season. Chong isn't ready for the PL yet. He is too lightweight and gets shoved off the ball too easy. United needs a Sancho and they need it now.

Sarr won't be a bad shout given that Shappy has scouted him for half the season and has suggested him several times. 😁.

11.) 18 Sep 2020 10:15:22
Coach Daniel James better Eric? Who's going to do that?

12.) 18 Sep 2020 10:59:57
i would take brooks as i think he is class. I would also take perisic or Ismailia sarr as i think they both would add to our front line.

13.) 18 Sep 2020 11:08:24
Shapps you forgot Buendia :)

Sancho's versatility will help us. When Rash needs to be rested, Sancho can play on the left and Greenwood on the right.

Similarly we can rotate Martial with Greenwood. It will give us so much quality options upfront.

Also while chasing a game, bringing someone on like Rash or Sancho or Greenwood from the bench can keep the attack firing without drop in terms of quality.

14.) 18 Sep 2020 11:17:48
Shan, Sarr would be a great option if we are looking for a player similar to Adama Traore but don't want to spend 70-80m on them. Quick, strong, direct, with improving end product. I wouldn't call either of them clever players, they are knock and run wingers who rely on their raw power and pace to blow players away. Then once clear they look for a cross or cut back, both tend to play lower crosses rather than high ones, or they look to cut back to an on rushing player. It's effective, but a little one dimensional. Similar to Dan James but with power as well as pace.

Personally I prefer the tricky clever players who find pockets of space and appear to ghost past people. While looking at that we have in our squad and the types of situations we find difficult to circumvent I think that sort of player suits our needs better. A technical dribbler, who plays with their head and not their physical attributes.

While Sarr would be a decent signing he would only add a more powerful version of Dan James.

15.) 18 Sep 2020 12:15:33
Saint maximin from Newcastle looks a decent player, I wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him.

16.) 18 Sep 2020 12:56:36
Shappy come off it mate what you been smoking?

Say your right and brooks who is average, 23 years old has 39 games playing at the highest level in english football costs 50 million

Why wpuld we not pay the extra 58 million for a plauer who is on a different planet to brooks, someone called brooks class further up 😂😂

Are people on the wind up today? Saint maxima sar and brooks 😂😂.

17.) 18 Sep 2020 14:01:55
bolger, Sancho isn't just £58m more than Brooks, that's just the transfer fee, then there is Sancho's agents fees which are thought to be in the region of 50m. Plus Sancho would be looking for wages in the 280-300k per week.

So the total cost of Sancho on a 5 year deal would be 108m in transfer fee, 50m in agents fees and 72.8m in wages over 5 years at 280k per week. Making Sancho cost a total of around £230m over 5 years.

Whereas Brooks would be a maximum of 50m in fees, around 10m in agents fees, and wages of around 120k per week (31.2m over 5 years) . Making Brooks cost a total of 91m over 5 years.

That means Sancho would cost 139m more not just an extra 58m.

While Sancho is clearly the much better player, my argument is based around only spending a huge fee on a player who is clearly better than Greenwood currently. Sancho fits that bill. But if he isn't available then what we should be looking for is a top quality rotation option with Greenwood.

TrueRedDevil, I'd love Buendia, he'd be a great option in my opinion. But the club don't have an interest in him and there seemed little interest on here in him when I mentioned him.

18.) 18 Sep 2020 15:04:13
sancho is available for 108 million, we haven't even tried bringing the fee down. make an offer, why have we been after the player for months and yet we haven't made an offer.

Dortmund always sell there best players, they are a selling club.

the fee is irrelevant if he plays the way he does for Dortmund and provides the numbers he does currently the money will look like peanuts in 3 or 4 years time.

and agent fees and wages are not the issue, multiple sources have said the issue is the fee.

but if we are going to waste time and then go for the likes of brooks and sar, imo is ridiculous.

greenwood is better than brooks and sar so we should stop wasting time and look at getting a cb and a striker in.

19.) 18 Sep 2020 15:11:09
Shappy, not only a powerful version of Dan James but also a version that plays RW. Would give an option of the bench when Greenwood isn't working out. Valencia used to be the same when he first came to us and he was massive before he was cursed with the #7.

As things stand we are starting the new season exactly where we finished last. Who does Ole turn to when your front line isn't working or your left full back has his annual injury or AWB is unable to cross. He still wouldn't have who he might "trust".

20.) 18 Sep 2020 15:20:52
also to add how much you think the club will earn from shirt sales alone having Sancho number 7

if we sold the players that were no longer needed instead of blocking and pricing players out of moves put that to the fact we have saved around 50 million on wages with Sanchez now gone.

its really frustrating every window is the same.

21.) 18 Sep 2020 17:05:57
bolger, I believe the club has been in discussions, but buying players is a little more nuanced than picking up a can of beans from Tesco. The Eds have said the total cost of signing Sancho is huge and has caused other clubs to walk away from any deal.

The idea that he will continue the same numbers he is achieving in the Bundesliga is slightly foolish. Very few if any offensive players move from Germany to the EPL and maintain the same volume of goals/ assists as they managed in Germany. Some of the defending in the Bundesliga is awful which inflates offensive players numbers. Maybe Sancho would after a couple of years be able to get his number back up to his current level but I highly doubt it would be instant.

While shirt sales are irrelevant as the money goes to Adidas unless sold via the club shop. We get nada from shirt sales as Adidas has bought the rights.

I think a lot of your frustration comes from reading too much into what the media is saying on a daily basis. My advice is either stop reading it or read it but don't believe a single word of it. Most is just made up to sell papers and get clicks. No amount of reading these articles will hurry along any transfers. They will happen when they happen or they won't happen.

Shan, Sarr wouldn't be a bad signing and he would offer us another option. I wouldn't be against signing him. It's just a personal thing, I'd prefer a more technical player who offers us something different to what we have. I 100% agree that we need to sign someone, we can't go into the season with Lingard and Pereira being the options from the bench.

While I think Greenwood is good enough to play first choice and play most weeks, he is a young player and he will have dips in form. Therefore its vital to have a player who can come in for him and allow him a rest both physically and mentally. We saw Sir Alex do it a few times with DDG in his first couple of seasons with Lindegaard coming in for him for a few games here and there.

22.) 18 Sep 2020 17:32:54
Regarding coaching - my guess would be one if the handsomely paid professional coaches at the club?

Chong won’t get physicality unless he plays in our league.

23.) 18 Sep 2020 17:48:50
But they new what the numbers were going into the window so what did they exoect to happen.

Amatures yet again.

24.) 19 Sep 2020 15:36:03
I mentioned going for Brookes before, I’m from Sheffield and have seen a few times, but got shot down for mentioning ramdom names.

25.) 19 Sep 2020 15:37:42
Sorry pressed send, Brookes is quality and would be a great signing.

26.) 19 Sep 2020 15:48:55
Bolger, have you watched brooks quality and the right age and will get better, we have signed 2 player of the year from Germany and neither reproduced the form even though i loved Kagawa, and, WOODY this is for you, as said before, half the price.



31 Aug 2020 09:55:09
ED002, do the club have any plans for Tuanzebe this season? Perhaps a loan for him? .

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything.}

02 Aug 2020 08:26:06
Ed002 which clubs if any, are interested in Jesse Lingard?

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approaches at this time.}

1.) 02 Aug 2020 09:50:04

2.) 02 Aug 2020 10:14:20
I have a feeling Jesse will stay another year.

3.) 02 Aug 2020 10:53:09
I don't think he will be forced out.
He is entitled to stay and give it another year.
I think he will get a couple of offers he could well do a decent job somewhere and start enjoying himself again. He looked far from his bubbly self for the past 12 months so perhaps a move may reinvigorate him.

4.) 03 Aug 2020 15:50:04
Thinks it is the personal issues which have weighed him down over the last 12 months. He is entering the last year of his contract, so should get a good last contract from another team to finish off his playing career, good luck to him.



04 Jul 2020 10:03:40

Are Utd interested in matty longstaff?


Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - As far as I know the interest went with Matic signing a new contract and his current behaviour will not impress other clubs.}

1.) 04 Jul 2020 11:44:03
Thanks ED002.



18 May 2020 11:25:27

I have read that Luis Ocampos gas asked to leave Lille? Is there any truth in this, if so do you know which clubs would be u interested in appointing him as a DOF or sporting director etc.

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - Spurs.}

1.) 18 May 2020 11:33:31
He would be a great fit at Spurs, he has the connections and an eye for talent. He has always been able to bring in top class young talent for relative peanuts who then turn into top class players.

Would suit Spurs down to the ground.

2.) 18 May 2020 11:51:27
Thanks ED002.

Except Jose won’t play any of them.

A much better performance and a deserved win. Although I will become unpopular with my next comment, but OGS left it very late to bring in VDB. He should have been on earlier and before Pogba.

Tuanzebe played very well. i'd be very tempted to play the same against Chelsea on Saturday, perhaps with VDB instead of McTominay/ Fred.

Mad Hatter

1.) 20 Oct 2020 21:59:58
You're clutching at straws mate. Ole got it bang on the money tonight.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 22:01:56
Not sure we can complain too much about how Ole played that, what he did was realise we could win and were the better team and put pogba on further forward and switched the formation, PSG have just lost their first home group game since 2004, there can be nothing to complain about imo.

3.) 20 Oct 2020 22:03:33
Pig a came on at the right time for me. I thought he did OK by drawing players towards him and moving the ball on. I’m clearly not Pogba’s biggest fan but I think he did his job perfectly tonight.

4.) 20 Oct 2020 22:13:20
I get what you’re saying about Van de beek but I don’t think we should have changed it as we were well on top. I thought the manager was spot on tonight.

5.) 20 Oct 2020 22:16:40
🤦🏻 We bossed most of the game, won away at the favourites, most of the team played well, Pogba was very good when he came on, but you find something to moan about. 🤷🏻.

6.) 20 Oct 2020 22:18:45

No ifs, no buts. OGS got his tactics and team absolutely spot on tonight so give him credit here it’s due. Well deserved win.

7.) 20 Oct 2020 22:20:12
Didn’t he win? So the tactics paid off?

I don’t think Ole is the finest tactician, but he nailed it tonight. I think Pogba without a set defensive role is a decent option to bring on to unsettle the opposition and it worked. I suspect VdB just isn’t quite up to speed yet or hasn’t earned Ole’s trust. Can’t wait to see him unleashed though!



13 Oct 2020 09:38:32
ED001, if OGS gets sacked in the near future, who in your opinion should Utd look to appoint?

Mad Hatter

{Ed001's Note - Nagelsmann or maybe you should look to Gasperini (nod to angelred there) as both play good attacking football. They both seem the best fit for the United way, in terms of the way they play and their willingness to look to the academy to fill gaps.}

1.) 13 Oct 2020 10:52:51
Gasperini is a great shout to be fair. Made Atalanta one of the best attacking sides in Europe.

Marcelo Gallardo seems to be pretty highly thought of and has done well in Argentina, Ed out of curiousity what's your opinion on him?

{Ed001's Note - I would love to see him manage in Europe, absolute legend in Argentina, but just don't know if the fans would give him a chance, otherwise he would defo be one I would have suggested.}

2.) 13 Oct 2020 10:54:53
Cheers ed. Interesting. I'm sure he wouldn't be a popular choice given his stats but I like the way he has Atalanta playing and you're right, seems to fit the 'united way'.

{Ed001's Note - stats need context, his stats with Atalanta are incredible when you consider the budget he has compared to his rivals in Serie A.}

3.) 13 Oct 2020 11:08:08
Agreed ed. But they will be an easy target. I mean, he managed Genoa, Palermo and had 5 games at Milan.

What he is doing at Atalanta is nothing short of incredible.

Their youngsters are going to be picked off though as we are now beginning to see.

{Ed001's Note - they are likely to continue earning off the youngsters though, they get a cut of any future fees, so it is a good long term income.}

4.) 13 Oct 2020 12:00:16
As a River Plate fan who has followed them closely since Gallardo took over, it's always a conflict to see his name linked with teams like Barcelona or the Argentina job as he really deserves a shot at the big time but there's no one even close who could replace him at River. Silky attacking football style, very ready to promote youth players, always turns up for the big matches (barring the 5 minute blip at the end of the last Libertadores final) and above all a lovely and humble guy. Met him once and he thanked us for taking a photo with him. Legend.

5.) 13 Oct 2020 12:19:59
All United fans have their own personal favourite players to sign, or manager.

Most are happy to ship out Pogba thinking we will sign Saul Niguez as his replacement. The reality is often we ship out player and their replacement isn't who we wanted.

People are happy to see Ole sacked on the basis that the club will hire Gasperini, or Allegri, or Nargelsmann. When the reality is that we are more likely to see Ryan Giggs or Gareth Southgate come in as Ole's eventual replacement.

6.) 13 Oct 2020 12:42:29
Thanks ED001. Would either of those two be open to a move to Utd? Given that the club is a shambles.

{Ed001's Note - I very much doubt either would want to, not without the right set up to work with.}

7.) 13 Oct 2020 13:00:35
The way things are going we will be looking for big Sam to get us out of trouble.

8.) 13 Oct 2020 13:11:18
What is your opinion about Ralf Ragnick Tris? I think he is really good at implementing a setup at clubs. I think he can introduce the right setup for future candidates like Nagelsmann or Gallardo.

On the topic of Gasperini, Tris and I along with some others have been raving about him for many many seasons. Also to the topic about stats while judging him, Atalanta have been the best team in Series A for 2 seasons stastically. Also the youth setup of Atalanta is really really great. The recent talents emerging aren't just a "lucky crop/ class" of youngsters breaking through rather more an indication of the work and efforts as well as quality of their academy. So I think they will still continue to produce young talents for good few yrs like Ajax. They seem to have a "conveyer belt" when it comes to producing young talents.

{Ed001's Note - Rangnick is the man I would look to in order to create a set up for the long term future.}

9.) 13 Oct 2020 14:07:44
That would be the best pathway for us in my view, ed001. Bring Ragnick in as a manager with a view to moving him upstairs in a DoF/ Sporting Director role in the future. He did so a willingness to move on from the RB setup so shouldn't be unachievable right now.

Tris do you really see us going for Ryan Giggs if we were to sack OGS now? I think even our board isn't that dumb and out of touch with football but they have surprised me on many occasions before.

{Ed001's Note - I think personally that they would be wary of going down the ex-player route again if Ole is sacked. I doubt they would expect it to work twice to appease the fans and would just be seen as trying to do so, rather than an attempt to move the club forward.}

10.) 13 Oct 2020 16:09:22
Any top Manager is still likely to be interested because of one simple thing MONEY.

11.) 13 Oct 2020 18:28:45
One thing is certain whoever the unlucky sod is will have half the fans turn on him after a couple of months unless we win all our games 5-0,so far we've tried a youngish British manager, a tried and tested European and international manager and the special one, but the fans have turnt on them all, now we're trying one of our own and most have turnt on him. it really seems the united managerial position is a poisoned chalice.

12.) 13 Oct 2020 20:44:30
It doesn’t matter who we choose next. Provided they are appointed by the end of this year, you can be sure that the board will fail to back him come summer 2022 and we will all be fed up again.

13.) 13 Oct 2020 20:48:10

All the fans didn’t turn on them all. One of our own is actually an ex player being the sentimental choice. Maybe if they choose better, we can talk about something other than the manager.

Greenwood Rovers, thanks for those insights on Gallardo. Nice to know a little of what is behind the image.

14.) 13 Oct 2020 22:07:58
C'mon lads, all four managers since Fergie have been complete pants in their own different ways. The fans only went against them because we were fed up of being served up a load of crap week after week.

The fans will recognise and appreciate a decent manager who trys to play entertaining, attacking football in a clearly defined style.

The fans will also have some patience if they can see what the manager is trying to do and they like it.

What we won't put up with is another load of dross for the 8th year running.



06 Oct 2020 16:37:05

If a player signs a new contract, but for example the current manager gets sacked a couple of months later, and the new manager deems the player surplus to requirements, can he be sold given that he has only recently signed a new contract?

Mad Hatter

{Ed002's Note - If a buyer can be found and if the player agrees, sure.}

1.) 06 Oct 2020 17:00:19
Ofcourse Mad Hatter. You can even sell a player which you just buyed . A player can't play with 3 different clubs in a calendar year i think, which means that if say VDB don't registered and didn't play a single minute we could sell him.

2.) 06 Oct 2020 17:08:29
No backsies 😂.

3.) 06 Oct 2020 16:58:14
Cheers ED002.



04 Oct 2020 11:21:32
ED001, do you think Cavani will be a good signing for United given his injury record over the last 2 years.

I also read tha the has attended a ballet School in Uruguay to help keep his fitness levels up etc. I know ballet is very good for you fitness wise, but not great for your toes though.

Mad Hatter

{Ed001's Note - ballet is also very good for strength, balance and flexibility. I didn't think his injury record was so bad, but I haven't really followed the French league as it is boring. You need a goalscorer, he is a goalscorer. It should be an excellent signing on paper, just depends on his mental state. I would think he has a lot to prove after the way he was treated by PSG, so should be in the right place to perform for United.}

1.) 04 Oct 2020 12:19:05
Apparently he is joining on a 1 year deal with an option for further 1 year for the club. So I think it will be a good deal for the club Tris.

Also our front line is on the younger side so a little bit of experience Wong be of much harm.

{Ed001's Note - exactly, to me it does seem to have few potential drawbacks. So long as he is not just topping up his pension then he should be a great signing. You have a young team, so an experienced head is always a good thing.}

2.) 04 Oct 2020 12:23:26
I agree ed001. I am write hopeful. Its a risky signing but i don't see a big downside if he displays the sort of character he has displayed so far in his career.
Yes he is in the twilight of his career but some old fiddles can still produce a sweet tune😂.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if you think it is good, then it must be awful as we need to disagree or people will think we are the same person! The only worry really is that he might be like you and the wood has been left out in the wind and rain and gone misshapen and rotten..... ;-)

3.) 04 Oct 2020 12:27:47
001 you have pretty much nailed my thoughts on this signing.

A proven goal scorer. Yes he’s had his injury issues recently, but before that he was hardly ever injured. He’s a very fit lad, always has been. He’s totally different to our current forwards. He scores all types of goals and bullies defenders, relying on his strength and movement.

The noises coming out are that he wants to join us. We aren’t breaking our pay structure to sign him (so not like the Sanchez deal at all), and I think he will feel he has a point to prove.

He left PSG under a Neymar shaped cloud, and we have the small matter of facing them in the CL group stages. That should be all the motivation he needs to stay fit and force his way into the first team before we face them.

I’m looking forward to seeing Cavani in red.

{Ed001's Note - did he have a lot of injuries or was it just being claimed he was injured so they could leave him out? I mean Neymar would be 'injured' so he could take a few weeks off for birthday celebrations and Rio Carnival, so I am not particularly trusting of injury reports out of that club.}

4.) 04 Oct 2020 13:16:27
Thanks ED001,

Time will tell whether or not he is a good signing.

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}

5.) 04 Oct 2020 13:17:09
I forgot the ask ED001, can you elaborate on the way he was treated at PSG?

{Ed001's Note - he was treated like a second-class citizen after Neymar arrived. As they didn't hit it off immediately and had a few public disagreements, it was always Cavani that was blamed. While Neymar was treated with kid gloves and all his ridiculous demands and whims catered to, Cavani was disciplined and told to bow down before Neymar's greatness.}

6.) 04 Oct 2020 13:40:37
Any coincidence then Ed001 that we draw against PSG on Thursday and Cavani and his camp are more eager to join Man Utd? Maybe he has a point to prove if he feels hard done by PSG.

{Ed001's Note - I hadn't even thought of that, it certainly could have been in his thinking.}

7.) 04 Oct 2020 14:11:55
Cheers ED001. Deeps, you might have a point there.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}



03 Oct 2020 19:38:53
ED002, has Cavani been training with any clubs? I was wondering about his fitness levels etc.

His last competitive game was back in March so he won't be match fit, so at least he will fit in with the rest of the team.

Where would they play or even play? We have signed two wingers. With Cavani, martial and Rashford can play on the wings aswell.

ED002, I take Ighalo will leave and go back to China in January?

Pogba goes missing in every game he plays. Why the club never sold him is baffling.

I agree with you here. Maguire has made an awful lot of mistakes for a so called top defender. Last season he played opposition players on side which allowed them to score. He often drops back and never holds the line.

Maguire is a prime example of where desperation results in a panic buy.

Peoples opinions change with the wind. The end of November will show whether or not Utd are back and competing.

There was an noticeable improvement on Tuesday. The team played as a team. They looked comfortable. However I fully expect OGS to recall Maguire and revert to 4231.

I mentioned yesterday that I'd drop either Fred or Mctom for VDB. Not because they didn't play well, more to do with how VDB link up play passing and movement helps to speed to our play.

It goes to show that Ole doesn't know what his best team or formation is. Yiur are correct that teams have worked Utd out when they play 4231.

The problem is, that when teams play pressing football and pin Utd back, that we make too many mistakes. Both Lindelof and Maguire lack pace and aren't that good technically either. I think it is how they are coached aswell.

Ultimately we are a Jekyll and Hyde team.

Welcome and enjoy the ride. A very good post. I think a lot of fans are still surprised Pogba is here. I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign a new lucrative contract with the club. It is the type of deal the Woodward to do.
