Sorry, I know this is just a silly thought bubble and I am happy for one of the Eds to tell me to pull my head in, could the true reason Du is staying be that Big Sam is on his was out the door?

Posting a bit lately, sorry about that. Work is a little quiet so I am a little bored and frustrated.

{Ed001's Note - no, he just wasn't getting the job at Oxford. They decided against him.}

Thanks Ed, thought that was the case.

{Ed001's Note - I doubt he will get a job outside of the area as a first step to be honest. Who is going to believe he would be as committed as you need to be when they know his missus is never going to want the move? It was a long time ago, but people in football do not forget the quick jump from Villa to go home!}

Ed001: wasn’t it a move back north from West Ham that he wanted (because his wife hadn’t settled in London) and their manager (Harry Redknapp) couldn’t believe it when he went to Aston Villa! Unsy quickly (without ever playing for Villa? ) then moved back to Everton.

{Ed001's Note - yes. He was at Villa for just 4 days if I remember correctly. He only went to Villa because Everton showed no interest prior to him moving. Probably just a miscommunication or an attempt to drive down the price on Everton's part which saw him just take the closest club he could get to home. It really was the most bizarre and surreal set of transfers.}
