Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

A couple of the more credible papers (guardian and telegraph I think it was) are saying that Moyes wants to get all three of De Rossi, Herrera, and Fellaini. That would be the worst possible outcome IMHO -- blowing a big transfer budget on a bunch of journeymen (ok De Rossi is class, but he's 30). I...

vs Liverpool

Fuck this pointless transfer shit. Let's talk about getting this title run back on the road. Rodgers and journos seem to be talking liverpool up, time to put them in their mid table place. DDG Smalling - Rio - Vida - Evra Carrick - Cleverley Kagawa - Rooney - Welbeck RVP Jones had a bit of a mare at...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Surely Real should just offer Spurs £20M less now -- they've already spent the money, they'll be fucked financially if they don't actually sell Bale now.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Apparently this Italian piece says De Rossi would have seriously considered our offer earlier in the summer, but it's a bit late now: http://www.corriere.it/sport/13_agosto_30/calciomercato-manchester-united-su-derossi_3e7bca86-115e-11e3-b5a9-29d194fc9c7a.shtml?fr=box_primopiano This is really undig...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

We're not going to sign anyone... or we are going to get taken to the cleaners for any no mark we're desperate enough to buy. This is the problem with having a fuckwit in charge of something so important... he gets exposed very quickly for the bell that he is... he's dealing with experienced footba...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I think Ander Herrera is exactly the kind of player we need. Tackles a lot, aggressive, good range of passing, creative, can carry the ball forward too. Only thing he doesn't do is score, which isn't all that important from one of the holding players. The way the Fellaini transfer has been conducte...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

From Sky Sports: We are hearing that Manchester United are edging closer to agreeing a deal for Everton ace Marouane Fellaini. Talks are thought to be at an advanced stage between both clubs. Fellaini is expected to play for Everton against Cardiff on Saturday, but United are hopeful of securing th...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

If we bought Fellaini and Herrera (since the Herrera looks more like an attacking mid Fabregas alternative), that would be a combined £55M or thereabouts. That's kind of mind blowing for a pair of decidedly non-marquee players.
