Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer
It's surprising because it's been a long time since we beat Manchester United to a player we both wanted. United can usually outbid us easily. The only one I can think of is Sol Campbell when he was the hottest Bosman around in the summer of 2002.
United were so sure they signed him they put the announcement up on their website ...
"What's your name?"
"F*** you! That's my name. You know why mister? 'Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight. I drove an eighty thousand dollar BMW. That's my name."
