  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    We can look forward to some totally cringeworthy moments at the Bridge. I'll be giving the Song for Willian topic a swerve.
  2. Transfer Talk Topic

    This has to die, right now.
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    Still doesn't make much sense, though. He refused to sign a new contract - citing a desire to play in England - after interest from Tottnum, Liverpool and Everton earlier in the year. If he came to us we wouldn't ship him out to another English club unless he was a makeweight or we wanted favours from someone...

    Why would you think he's going to cost that much? Ten percent of your estimate will be closer to the truth.
  5. Official: Romelu Lukaku Joins Everton

    Wrong. Lukaku has said himself that there's an aspect to his game that he knows is weak and needs to be improved on, and Jose has said the same. Given the tactics last night - and in particular the way United were set up - Lukaku would have been the worst option to bring on.
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Appreciate the mods are up to the ears at the moment, but this is still the transfer topic, right? There's a whole topic dedicated to last night's match.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    They're only writing it because their shill was briefed on two pieces for United.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    27th or 28th August, when the transfer will be announced.
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hands up if you read the Guardian piece all the way to the end. I didn't read it as all over at all, quite the contrary. To my mind it's displaying a lack of confidence - fear even one might say - that simply didn't exist under Ferguson and still talks of hope that Rooney might not put in a transfer request.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yeah, but he's English, right? I think you're wanted a couple of pages back... or were you deliberately trolling the site?
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    You might think that, but if any senior exec at a football club thought that way they'd be sacked immediately. Short termism.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    Is it safe to assume, before people start laying into you, that you've already prepared a defence for this quite ridiculous assertion? Whilst you ponder that, consider this: how do you see the demographics of this site?
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    A very good point well made. And that in a season when everyone was talking about how terrible many of the teams were. I think we're done and done with this one.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Erm, not sure what that Redknapp **** is all about right there. In fact, some might argue that AVB - given interest from abroad at the time - may not have even been in the position he is now if Redknapp didn't do all that **** work.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    Did you listen to the whole interview? I thought it was more a case of, 'come in Agent Ray, your work here is done.' I've seen a lot of complaints about Ray's comments, but most of the stuff people are upset about are the selective quotes posted out of context.
  16. Michael Essien

    Judging by all the comments from two and a half years ago - I'll spare the blushes of the posse who said, quite literally, that Essien was done, finished, etc. - I'd say there's a few people here who think they do.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Thanks for reminding me what this place is, I only helped set it up in the first place after all. I asked the question because it strikes me that if you ever do go to matches, you must really dislike the whole experience. Rooney gets called fat, so does Frank, Adebayor's dad washes elephants and so on.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    You go to matches at all? You must hate the whole experience.
  19. Media / Press

    Eh? Owen is on BTSport. What's wrong with Luca Vialli, then?
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Whooosh! That's the point.
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Stella Creasy would like a word. LOL, is it? Hilarious. Excuse me while I clear up the mess I've made wetting myself with laughter.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Like so many threads on here, too.
  23. Van Ginkel

    See, here's the thing. You've used past tense there, yet he's still only 30. Two decent years at Real up to 2010 - less than 30 appearances a season though - and since? Decent, I'd say, but not much more.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    Should be in the trash, but it's been a while. Also, not sure what level of access a user needs to even see deleted stuff.
  25. Squad Status: 2013/2014 Season

    McEachran is going on loan, possibly Chalobah too. Piazon's also going out on loan, Wallace too because he has no work permit. Also likely is Traore because he might also struggle to get a work permit. Source
