Hang on Bman, you're saying there that Moyes will revolutionise Spanish football by making em "hard to beat"

...

If that happened you could kiss goodbye to the quality football the Spanish fans enjoy, it will be all battlers, fry ups and rhetoric

Maybe this is our plan to become the best at football? If you can't beat em, go over there and ruin their game from the inside

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, Barcelona, Rome, Milan etc is far more appealing than living in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham etc. The London clubs don't struggle the same way as we do. Does anyone remember Mark Fish? Back in 1995 he was an awesome defender. He supported United as a kid (coming from SA) and a deal was agreed for him. At the last minute Lazio stepped in and he signed for them. When asked why, he replied 'I had the choice of living in Rome or Manchester. What did you expect?!'....

We do get some works class players in the PL ...but usually its only because they have been let go by the likes of Real and Barca...
Fabregas? One of our best and is only back because Barca had better in their first XI

Hazard? Bought as a prospect, no doubt will be a target for Real very soon - and woukdnt be surprised if he went.

We can get lucky and get players like Ruud that come from Holland and seem to like the PL without being swayed as much by Spain..

Mark Fish? Fuck me, there's a name from the past! Didn't he end up at Bolton?

Right, once the fry up stereotypes come out, then so am I.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

I didn't say Moyes would revolutionize Spanish football, I said I can see more of the smaller Spanish clubs trying to make themselves harder to beat. It's getting to the point that most Liga matches are training exercises for Barca and Real between their Champions League games.

Anyway, I don't really care. Woody you tool, fucking sign someone!!!

The old "Why don't you move there if you like it so much" because I'm criticising the Prem

I didn't have you down as much of a patriot, Laz but then tbf you don't ever really say anything of content or original, you just kind of reply at the end of a convo with something snidey or just daft

And you've got shitloads of posts so you must do this a lot

Sammer implying Schweini might be leaving Bayern, Guardiola saying he's planning for him to be in the squad next year.
Lahm is out of contract next season too.
