Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

BBC are reporting the Darmian story too, apparently gonna cost about €20m. They seem to be suggesting it's been agreed.

Re: Squad

Who is suitable though? We need a striker who is top-rate, at the right kind of age and, more importantly, available. If we can't find someone that's gonna actually improve us, we'd be better to stick with what we've got. Better that than bring in some mediocre striker who won't bring us anything be...

Wilson? Where's he going?

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I'm not convinced we're gonna bring in anyone up front, not unless some high-profile player makes themselves very publicly available. As it is, I reckon we'll have Rooney as the main lone striker up front, Chicharito as backup, and Wilson for the cup games. Rooney's captain, so there's no way he's g...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

From the BBC Sportsday Live: The London Evening Standard reports that Chelsea expect to complete the £8m signing of Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic this week, despite late competition from Manchester United. Chelsea have already agreed personal terms on a four-year contract worth £75,000-a-week for the B...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Shows how much of a slow transfer window it's been so far when all there is to talk about is whether Sid hates this country or not!

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I'm with Sid on this. None of the elite will come to the UK whilst in their prime. We'll either have them in the PL when they're still learning or once they're over the hill. I don't think it's anything to do with money. I think quality of life, location etc is more of a factor. Living in Madrid, B...

Re: Computer Games

I'm loving Arkham Knight too. Missus bought it and a PS4 for my birthday, and then let me have it nearly a month early. The graphics are immense, Riddler races are annoying as fuck though!

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I've been back and forth in my head over this Ramos speculation since it began, and yes, it does seem like an excessive amount of money for a player of his age, but maybe that's just the way the transfer market has gone now. Bear in mind that Real Madrid themselves paid around £45million for Zinedin...

That's gonna make for an awkward conversation over Christmas dinner!
