:( its like teddy sheringham all over again :'(
especially if Berbatov goes to ManYoo. Spurs aren't going to have any attacking options!
but he's a midfielder surely? i was thinking more of strikers
can play someone up front alone, and him and maybe another supporting them
but im sure we must have a couple of deals in the pipeline. especially given that bent and berbatov are supposed to be off. i dont think we would allow them all to leave unless we had options lined up.
isn't Villa supposed to be moving to Spurs?
the Valencia striker, that is, not the whole club from birmingham
im sure something will come out in the next week though.
but Madrid haven't been exactly going out of their way to sign anyone
except ronaldo, obvs
they encouraged us to bid for him, i think hoping that would spark activity from real
I can see a lot of moves being made between big clubs. Could potentially make for a crazy last couple of weeks of the window.
oh wait, attacking options...
Bent's one of the best lone frontmen in the country. With the likes of Modric and Dos Santos playing off him, they'd still cause most teams big problems.
That said, I'm fully expecting them to sign two new strikers if Berbatov does go. And if they plan to play two up front, they'll probably need three more.
personally i think hes good at a mid table team as hell get you a lot of goals, but against top class defenders hes not as great.
i didnt think we would allow berbatov or keane to leave until we had something to replace them, and i still believe that is the case.
he was the main man, everything went through him, and he got far more chances that he does at spurs, where he is secondary to berbatov
and you'll not be short of cash, but Bent's still a top player. If he's given a run in the side and the system suits him. Not that Spurs will give him either.
you are right i suppose, but i think bents not got the quality for a team that are in europe and are (supposedly) pushing for the top 4, to build around him.
and i know you love spurs. youve admitted it before
City old boyt FTW
we bouth off you
now we'll definately with the league!!!
Why not just spend a bit more and get David Villa or someone much better?
and is less of a risk than signing a foreign player, wants to play for the club, and will link up well with torres. i can see him doing well at liverpool really.
has better options. Keane doesn't.
benitez will keep him on the bench and sub him in at 89:14.
stay at Zenit and play in the champions league.
I think he wants to move to a European giant, but if none comes in for him, I think he'll be more than happy to stay in Russia. Paid handsomely and if he does well in the CL he might find his options are a little more attractive come the January transfer window.
but agree to disagree
for the CL though.
I don't know if it's the right decision, but I don't think he'll go anywhere he won't get champions league football just at the moment. We'll see. It's hard to judge anything in the current climate. Everything the press gets comes with an intention from someone.
but they don't seem too fussed that he wants to leave.
He's 27, if he was good enough, he'd have moved already. The only top team he's ever played really well against are Bayern and Holland, and when you analyse those teams in depth, they're not that good overall.
(He was fucking quality against Holland, mind)
Aggressive spitting twat El Hadji Diouf to Sunderland. And also this guy:
to roy keane beating the crap out of Diouf in training. I give it a month.
but it won't do him any harm. Nice little timely reminder for Ramos.
but i bet benitez plays/wastes him alot out wide.
worries me. It had occurred to me, but Benitez actually said at the press conference that he can play on the right. Has he ever, EVER, played there before? Total waste if that's what happens.
everything will be on the ground and moving fast so all those massive central defenders will be struggling and probably giving away lots of free kicks/pens
One of the best signings Benitez has made
If Keane is worth £20m, Id wager he probably is
