It is fucked that Young, Jones and Blind were pushed to the fore at the launch of the new shirt - no Rooney, the most famous player in the world alongside Ronaldo and Messi, because he's a Nike player

I saw a documentary recently that talked about how involved the sponsors are in modern football. They help organise transfers now. They do the ringing between clubs, the schmoozing etc.

And you know when a player is unveiled to the press, it's the sponsors that organise that - Nike or Adidas usually. They organise the time and date, get the press down, get the table, put the buffet on. So I can believe that Adidas would prefer us to sign an Adidas player.

Enevitable really. Injuries no doubt spoilt his career here. He's like glass.

We could do without players like that Twisted. He did nothing for us and took everything... including the piss.
Do you want Fries with that?

So it does actually look like we are going to start the season with one striker, (and one unproven kid). This strikes me as negligence really.

And Wilson doesn't look ready, could do with a loan, probably be Jacuzzi as back up striker or Depay
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Apparently Pedro getting finished this week, the fact his buy out clause is low is the only thing at remotely takes the sting out of the ADM shambles.

In today's world? Who the fuck knows, but Spanish International in his prime, scores goals, over 50 caps for Spain and 200 for Barca, Id say its low.
