for Ribery apparently...
lyle, u watch french football more than most of us, does he perform well for his team.
He was really good for Metz 2 years ago before going to Turkey and very good for Marseille last year.
Not sure his game is good for the UK...
Wern't Real Madrid going to offer something like Â£20 million for him or something silly like that?
Bayern is offering 10 M euros...
is this what's being reported in the French press?
I don't think it'd be too much.
As long as we get Buffon, Davies and Mascherano as well.
...it's in French.
it's a french site !
With what money?
Also, I'm always a bit suspicious of players bought on the strength of big tournament appearences - I'm assuming the made the offer before the final at the weekend?
he was good.
But a bit scared to play with players that were on his walls 5 years ago...
its amazing tho. he looks 30 but hes in his early 20's isnt he.
i think, would be ace for the arse.
and already had an amazing life...
should stay at Marseille for another season or two so that he can blossom into a better player.
He could bomb if he moved to Arsenal/Real/Munich now.
That way he'd get champions league experience and the opportunity to play with world class players.
wasn't there reports of Ribery wanting to move to Lyon? Lyle?
Aulas want him for Lyon.
But Marseille won't let him go there.
And I'm betting they won't sell him under 23 M euros.
But it's difficult to look good when you have to give the ball to Mamadou Niang...
Thankfully Dehu is gone !
it would more than likely be under the tutelage of Monsieur Wenger
But he doesn't seem to play easily with Henry at the world cup.
I could see Ribery doing well at Arsenal - playing the Pires role
was what Rosicky was for..
I forgot about Rosicky
but surely he's more in the Bergkamp role?
I see Van Persie getting more action in that role this season.
Aresnal are going to be impressive this season
plus they're going to have tons more money from the gate receipts
For me he would be better with someone like Klose or Trezeguet.
also, if Arsenal get him (bearing in mind they got Rosicky as well) Ljungberg is not going to be a happy camper
in the matches I watched...but maybe it's hard to shine in a team with Zidane, Henry and Viera!
any player that looks that much like Gary Neville cannot be good?
Phnar. He looks like Neville would look after he'd been in a fight...
Round here we call that trespassing!
are strange people...
I'd like it if we got Ribery. His name has been banded about a fair bit over the last year, and I've always been impressed when I've seen him play. And I wouldn't believe much of the Real Madrid transfer hype at the moment - they're being linked with every player under the sun
IF we got Ribery, Saviola and Davies, I'd be mucho content. Along with Rosicky, that'd be quite the summer collective by Monsieur Wenger. Plus, if I'm being greedy, Yaya Toure would be pretty cool too
Wenger's being pretty sensible - seems he's signing better, or at least potentially better direct replacements for people who are leaving / have left.
Walcott - A Young Wiltord (hahaha)
Rosicky - Bergkamp with tackling ability
Ribery - Pires with commitment
Curtis Davis - the new Sol - everyone's saying he's gonna be awesome
Saviola - not entirely sure about this one, but a welcome addition, he's a natural goalscorer.
Also i'd heard they were signing Buffon if Juventus got fucked up? What happened there? I'd love it if Buffon came!
If any of these come off, we'd have the most exciting squad in terms of potential. I mean, we pretty much already have, but I'm getting slightly wet (sorry) thinking about this
Plus, Toure and Cole aren't exactly old
Do people in France know much about him then? And how about Diaby? I know he played over there in a few games, but I've been really impressed with him so far. I think he's got massive potential
and that he has potential.
Diaby should never have left : it was just a problem between Santini and Guy Roux...
Maaaan... we could come 3rd this season!! [crosses fingers]
He should demonstrate that sometime.
it's all about Ribery coming to Watford......actually no, if the gaffa doesn't want him nor do i..
God that was pointless.
But sadly, I can't see him having that much of a future at us now with the emergence of Eboue. Then again, we've managed to keep two young left backs happy, so perhaps there's no reason why we can't do the same with two young right backs
We still have Justin Hoyte too, I think
I hope they don't! I thought Ribery was pony in the world cup.
