Now out. '1958, A personal account of that fateful year for Manchester United.' by Roy Cavanagh MBE. The print edition via http://rednews.bigcartel.com/product...chester-united Kindle via https://www.amazon.co.uk/personal-ac...SIN=B079CLFB66


'I'm surprised that he has chosen Scotland as I honestly didn't think he would. It is tough to say until we hear what he has to say about it but if you believe in yourself and your ability then I would have thought it would be a fairly straight-forward decision to choose England. He was born in England and sounds like he's English so I'm not sure how having a Scottish father is a stronger reason than where you are from. It sounds like his father has picked it more than him."


"We used to source kids who were eligible when they were 13 or 14 and I really hated the fact that our country went after English players and thought it stunk of desperation. I've also felt like it takes something away from our identity. We may not have the most talented players but they are grafters and have to be passionate about representing their country. A lot of guys are just coming to play for us to top up their CVs and boost their sponsors, so it doesn't sit well with me. It is also unfair on the players who will miss out on playing for their countries but it is the clubs' fault, not letting their players play in the youth teams and allowing it to get to this stage."


"Why has it taken 15 games for United without a discussion? Either England have been very slow and showed no interest or he feels very strongly about it. He looks a decent player but we haven't really seen anything special yet so when he comes up here with his English accent he'll have to really prove he is worth his place."
