Erm...most ridiculous piece of business of the summer, just about right, or cheap at twice the price?
hopefully we can get downing now and maybe someone else on top of that.
man utd always pay ridiculous prices for players.
Don't even think it.
If we needed any more proof that SAF has completely lost it, this is it.
To be fair though, he IS nearly twice the player Ruud V is.
you're not welcome here.
But it's nothing compared with the 28m they paid for Veron (arf arf)
veron was "awesome" at the time
I'm hardly up to date with who's hot and who's not in the world of football, but Carrick is hardly world class yet is he? I'd say that about Â£10m would be about right for him
with zakora and huddlestone
he put in some really good performances.
he's fine as an understudy for zakora.
anyway bamos 'berbatov is the new rebrov', we'll see whose laughing in may next year (me because i'll be in korea living right next to the beach).
It'll happen again. SOON
ON YOUR FACE
is the new rebrov
I can't wait to laugh in commanderfool's face when I/we are proved right.
in commanderfools FACE.
I saw Berbatov play for Bulgaria against Denmark in Portugal 2004, and he looked like shit in arse clothing. Again, I think I might be with bamos on this one
Another example of bamos summing up concisely what I was trying to say...
Andy Reid and Danny Murphy are being offered to Wigan plus Cash for Chimbonda.
Sounds a bit silly to me.
That's bonkers, surely they wouldn't do that?
Wigan would be laughing if that were true.
does anybody like chimbonda?
that murphy and reid are both truly awful players.
but not good. the world bup should just be on all the time.then wigan wouldnt exist
winner against yuou guys two seasons in a row? Danny Murphy, who has a hot wife and a really physically massive head? What's not to love?
You don't recognise true genius when you see it, that's your problem. You're too busy stil creaming over Ryan 'I've not had a decent game in five years' Giggs to notice real class.
i HATE ryan "put no effort in at all and whinge like the cunt i am" giggs. so don't give me that.
Well, there's still time for you then, you're getting there...
If Andy Reid hadn't already said something along the lines of he'd rather shove a knitting needle down his jap eye than come to St Mary's, I reckon Saints would be pleased to have them both
he got called up to the england team, didn't he?
cracking player on his day.
but Spurs need a squad.
and then we're well on our way to having a really good squad.
just that any team can't really afford to just lose two of their squad players to clinch the transfer of a fairly unproven right-back. Risky strategy innit.
Who do you want in defence?
And what's wrong with Davenport? I want him back :(
i don't know who i'd like. a decent right back for sure though, stalteri is a liability but for some reason jol loves him.
we also need a back-up centre back who isn't antony gardner who is a really terrible player.
We had Davenport on loan two seasons back.
Now he WAS toss in fuckwits clothing. The only defender I've ever seen get stripped for pace by James Beattie :(
I saw Huddlestone playing for Wolves, he looked like cack in wank clothing. I wouldn't mind betting that Spurs go and get a replacement, rather than banking on him...
and assumed you'd gone back to Fopp.
clauses that it probably amounts to about 14 if not less, which considering age, spurs finances and that is probably fair.
can i take this oppurtunity to gloat in James' face about me predicting this before the end of last season.
to gloat in your face because we've ripped you off royally.
like i say, i reckon we'll actually pay a fair price.
Was that Harry behind that then? That's a fairly hefty percentage.
S'pose you must be right though. Very sweet.
but i'll give him some time as i'd hate to come across like a fool (not that i don't anyway)
i just hope Arsenal buy some fucking defenders soon :/
You've got Pascal Cygan still. The new Tony Adams :D
is our new gambian 17 year old left back
I thought he sounded like some new African star :)
his international and domestic records are both amazing and he is a naturally cool-headed finisher (something we don't have with keane or defoe).
watch that and see if you still disagree.
i still do.
he can score headers AND penalties!
shame he's not very good at clebrating
I can show you footage of Francis Benali scoring a goal, I definitely wouldn't say he was worth more than Â£50 and a dead leg.
I seem to remember Rebrov had a pretty good record before going to Spurs as well...
but it does seem ridiculously steep. Man U are desperate though.
because it's ace.
i'm not watching that. i don't need to, i've played enough champ man to KNOW.
in my game - 2011 World Player of the Year = Dimitar Berbatov
He was amazing for us. Was that when you were in the premiership?
Yeah. It probably wasn't a good place to be at the time, but he definitely didn't impress. Which was a bit of a surprise, I'd heard nothing but good things about him.
He was definitely rubbish for us, though
remember prices are going up people, mainly because of chelsea, no one comes cheap nowadays
Keane-like player to play alongside him. Yes, there is a gaping Keane-sized hole in their team but don't forget the rest of their midfield is also shit and in desperate need of reinforcing.
I agree about replacing RVN. They should go for Bent or Defoe if they can afford to.
Almost every striker at the world cup who is considered to be world-class failed.
They should go for Tevez or Torres. Or both. That would make me very happy as a neutral.
But thinner and with a less interesting accent.
As an Arsenal fan, I am in no way bothered that Utd have signed him. He makes a shocking midfield better, granted, but he's nowhere near the player everybody seems to think he is
DoveFact (and it is actual fact):
At the Spurs training ground, every single player bar one was doing their best to persuade Carrick to leave. That one player? Ledley King. He's Tottenham through and through
We all know this, but there is hardly any club loyalty at all. Think: 18.6 million? That's a pretty sweet signing on fee. Plus he plays pretty much guaranteed Champions League football every season, and England managers look much more favourably on players playing for one of the top four
Also, contrary to reports, he was never offered an improved deal to stay at Spurs. That's just damage limitation from the board so it makes Carrick look even more desperate to leave
wanna hear some more "Ledley King to Arsenal" rumours.
it's been too long since the lastone :(
Tevez has definately got a good record in South America
But then so did Forlan
And I totally agree. No one person is bigger than the club? I'm not so sure
when I've seen him for Argentina. Especially at the last Olympics.
True about Torres but you never know. Footballers say some funny things. And if he does stay at Atletico Madrid for the rest of his career he's an idiot.
I saw that this morning and couldn't quite believe it. He's good, he's not nearly Â£20 million good. Shirley, if you've got that much to spend you could spend it better than that? I should think that filthy Spurs could comfortably find a pretty decent replacement with that sort of cash in the bank
