Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

True true. Affordable for PSG is pretty much whatever they want it to be anyways. Here's a good one to put our current standing and predicament(s) in perspective: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/16710949.stm Venky's do seem to be flying by the seat of their pants a little bit. They may not ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I know I've won money betting on RM and Barca to cover -3.5 goal spreads against Gijon in the past. That's not one defenders fault though. Anyone know anything about him? Was Alex really only 4.2mil??? Maybe more to go to a PL club? He's not my favorite player by any means, but that's an affordable ...

Re: dunn ready to quit ewood

Keeping the ball...... 4/5???

Really???!! Maybe a few years ago. Samba is probably harder to dispossess. Dunn just tries to do to much sometimes.

Extension doesnt hugely bother me. Need a couple vets with all of the youngsters on the team, especially if roberts, samba, salgado are on their way out.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Drastically different window from last summer. Won't lie though, I think I prefer the way this one is going. The one player we have been strongly linked with we signed. Unlike the hundreds we were close to signing/linked with last time around. Not that its bad to be linked with a bunch of potential ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I'd send Hoillet for him now, won't happen though.

That was a good one gibbon. I'm still calling him david badwillie for now.

500 sounds generous for Roberts. Nice fella. Sure we'll hear from him as a manager or color commentator down the line.

Re: Formica wanting out now

Seems a bit silly to let him go during the winter window. If he has to move in the summer, thats fine.... but I think it will be the young potential on the roster that saves us from relegation this spring. The kid is certainly all upside... and he works his tail off on the pitch. .... still half bel...

Re: Anthony Modeste........who??

If he signs by tomorrow, I'd say get him on the pitch this wknd! Timing really couldnt work out better with the Yak's red card. I don't mind Goodwillie starting, but you would hope they bring him on as a sub over any of our other striker options.

Where are all the Chris Samba's for 450,000?!!?? Wishing for a FIFAesque transfer window. As I said What Coach?

Anyone read the article about the scouts we sent to check out Modeste over the wknd? Traveled to Bordeaux and they didn't even play him. Great stuff. Money well spent. Hope they flew Ryanair!

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Black to be confirmed at news conference today.

I assume the modeste deal goes through if hes on his way for a medical. 6-month loan deal, without the option to buy??? That seems a bit odd to me. There's usually an option, even if the team loaning the player doesnt want him full time.
