About this deal

There is no explanation of how this devolped which given the circumstances of how the came together is a shame, obviously the author was restricted by the content of the cassette recordings. The first time I remember my dad playing football was at Old Trafford, and that's probably why I’m a United fan – I spent all my younger years watching potentially the best team in the world, certainly in the country. Maybe the addiction side of my brain makes me drive hard at work now or would have made me play football to a high level if I didn’t get injured. The inch-thick printed manuscript sitting on the table, faded and bound in a dog-eared blue folder, is Les Sealey’s autobiography.

He remains a Manchester United fan - and until last season had a box at Old Trafford - but now that Remi is playing for Huddersfield, that’s where you’ll find Joe most weekends. First half of Man United's clash with FC Copenhagen ends early after Italian referee Marco Guida blows his whistle before 45 minutes.Before kick-off, I was having a p--- in one of the urinals when the manager came over to use the facilities. After the first game against Crystal Palace was drawn 3-3, he dropped his goalkeeper, Jim Leighton, who had been with Ferguson for most of his managerial career, and replaced him with Sealey, who had played just two matches in a year. He was living his dream playing professional football alongside the likes of Frank Lampard, Jermain Defoe and Rio Ferdinand at West Ham, following in the goalkeeping footsteps of the father he idolised, Manchester United cult hero Les Sealey.

Marcus Smith leaves training on CRUTCHES and is sent for a scan on a suspected leg injury just five days. Les Kershaw, who is United’s chief scout, told us Galatasaray wouldn’t give us any problems; they were the weakest team left in the tournament.My first season as a goalkeeper would have been well underway by the time Luton and Sealey were important to me. The first one was the League Cup final against Sheffield Wednesday, which United lost, and my dad got a badly gashed knee towards the end of the game, but he refused to go off. I don't think you'll ever see that again, with that type of injury, anyone doing anything like that.
