Howson this is one very best interviews of a football man ever. You are seriously good. And Martin deserves a knighthood for his killer decision to hire Fergie. A paradigm shift if ever there was one. Well done to both of yoy
I think more credit should be given for the fact he stuck with fergie when the fans and the media had decided he was taking united backwards. No club boss these days would ever stand by a manager for such a long time.

Well done Mr Howson. You get my vote every time for representing the true United supporter. I have followed United since 1965 and agree with your sentiments and views 95 percent of the time. I would like to ask you a question, around the 41min mark in the interview, there was a chop, you had just put across your view on having a director of football. Did Martin change your view on that, or did he take it on board and agree to table the suggestion? I hope the later! Keep up the great work, you are going places mate !!!!! P S The True Geordie is a closet Red !

This is brilliant, well done. Your journalistic skills, presenting and your line of questioning have improved steadily but markedly over the past year or so. It's good to see. This guy clearly gets football and united in a way I'm not convinced the current leadership does. I also agree we have fallen behind in terms of organisation of the club compared to other big clubs. How we don't have a proper chief exec and separate Director of football/sporting director/technical director, I don't know. I'm not convinced woodward is a football man.

Very good interview. I was a regular supporter at the end of Big Ron, also watching the beginnings of the Ferguson era. I remember there was discord from some United fans about Sir Alex, but being at Nottm Forest when Robins got that goal, the fans seemed just delighted for Sir Alex, the press had kind of built it up that if we lost he would be sacked, so I believe he was well supported from the fan base. It’s nice that you want a manager to be given time to build something, I hope and believe Ole will build something, his signings have been really good. Brilliant about Busby, yeah to me he will always eclipse any manager, because he built this giant, Fergie restored it. So well done to you for asking good questions. Long live United, whatever our future holds, we will always be the best supported because we have amazing fans. 😀

Nice one Howson. Top content once again with the kind of interviews fans want to see. I may not always agree with your views 100% of the time, but that's football isn't it. Great watch and a great channel that seems to be going from strength to strength. I know it's a tough ask but try and get Ravel Morrison boxed off if you can!

First job in any audio recording... check the levels! Radio journalist types will often ask you what you had for breakfast to make sure everyone is registering loud and clear and at similar levels to one another - and reposition you and tell you to speak up, if necessary.

Great interview Steve! In my opinion Matt Busby was the best manager ever and is not credited no where near enough, he really did put United on the map and was an incredible person! You really touched on some very interesting points there mate, Knighton deal, Cantona deal, Brian Kidd suggested signing of Sheringham, how the Champions league started, Batistuta none deal (I was so desperate for us to sign him) but I was just curious to see all these months later how you feel about Mourinho staying on now and being given more time? Personally I am against him spending our money when he has yet to get the best out of his signings Pogba, Sanchez, Lindolf and of course Miki. I honestly think we have the players to play a United brand of football and win trophies but we don't have the manager who knows or wants to play our brand of football and I to very honest I really can not climb over that personal barrier mate! I am not convinced the players believe in Mourinho anymore also and I think our successful 2016/17 season was largely due to Ibra and not just his goals but the fact his teammates looked at him as our leader and believed we could always win with him in our starting line up. Love to get thoughts mate but once again congrats on a job well done, a really top notch interview mate!

Great interview! Very insightful. I know it is not what this video is about, but as a Hungarian, I was surprised that Mr. Edwards knew some stats about Puskás. A small suggestion: It could be good to have a link to amazon in the description so those of who are interested could find the book quicker. Thanks for the book recommendations : Gonna chech out Mr. Edwards` book, Duncan Edwards: The Greatest as well and since you were talking about Sir Matt Busby, just found this new book which is called - Sir Matt Busby: The Definitive Biography.

If I remember correctly, Martin Edwards was not very popular with the fans early on, many felt he didn't earn the position, and he was only there for the money. (The Media didn't help matters either, and he was a easy target.) I also remember how some fans were gutted when the buyout fell through. You have to give him props though, he turned the club around, stuck with SAF when even then many clubs would have sacked him. Great video mate, one of the best interviews I've seen in a while, it's not often you get people talk so openly in interviews, and that was a amazing insight into how the club was run,, You should get Big Ron next.

I don't think it would be good for both Ste or Ron to do it as likely get picked up by the press and stir up a hornets' nest neither want.
Nadim 5 anni fa
I would ask him if he wishes to talk about the incident - and then let him speak it out - no follow up questions, let him put his story forward and end it - I would imagine he wants to get it off his chest!
hmoham 5 anni fa
Yeah that would be a tricky situation, all I can think is asking him if he's OK being asked about the incident before hand, maybe ask him about his regrets regarding the incidents, and how that changed him...or something along that line. No idea mate.

I remember Sir Bobby being interviewed after the league win in 1993 that the team Fergie had built could dominate for 10 years. Right prediction other than severe underestimation of length of time.

I’m not a united fan but this was very interesting. Imagine a manager today going to the chairman like Atkinson did and then being backed! Different world of football. A story like Ferguson can never happen now. He would be fired within those three underperforming seasons today.

I was part of the Fergie out brigade in the autumn of 1989. I went to our game against spurs in the 3rd round of the league cup in October 1989 and we got beat 3-0 and it was depressing. The following game was a 2-1 win over Southampton at Old Trafford. We were so inconsistent that season, I didn’t know what I was going to see from one game to the next. Shows what I know though!!!

Mr. Edwards and his colleagues form that board then seem uniquely qualified to scout for and select Man Utd managers. They should get back together, brainstorm for a month or two, and come up with Mourinho's successor. Man Utd should have that lined up already. Get "the band" back together and find us another Sir Alex Ferguson.

I remember the wilderness years, all he wanting and yearning for success, the rivalry with liverpool and the second coming of alex fergusson. it has been such a wonderful passion of mine for so long. i have never seen such a great interview with martin edwards. it was so on the money. thanks again stephen.
