Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think its safe to say Valencia and Benzema are going to become Utd Players now though I have major doubts over the French Kid. I think Ribery is a must to replace world class with world class ability. However I agree Man Utd could lower the fee down to £70 million if they chuck in Snejider too who has no future at REAL despite what he may think and he is a top top player...more of a natural winger in ways than Ronaldo allowing Rooney to stay upfront like he does for England.

Also with 3 wingers in the mold of Snejider, Valenica and Ribery they could also sell that waste of space Nani maybe put him n the deal to get Ribery off Bayern, am sure Bayern would accept around £25 mllion + Nani who would probably be good in Germany.

Foster/Van De Sar

Rafael, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, O'Shea, Fabio, Evra

Snejider, Valenica, Ribery, Giggs, Park, Scholes, Carrick, Anderson, Hargreaves

Rooney, Benzema, Berbatov, Welbeck

not a bad team ey though still can't believe he wants to sell Campbell & especially Gibson who have bags of potential.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Just came across this peach of a quote from the Sky Sports comments page...

Another £20 million and Real could've bought Newcastle!


Love it.

Apparently Bayern rejected a €50 million offer for Ribery from Real.

Reports say Bayern want £40 million dunno what that is in €'s but Nani at least is worth 10 million in the current climate so Maybe him + 30 million would do it. Personally I wouldn't go above £35 million and a player like Nani cause thats a £45 milion deal could also have a 5% sell on clause or something as well.

I don't know. I don't think Ribery is worth that much anyway, although I do believe he could strengthen any club in the world.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Where's Platini, bemoaning how buys like this are ruining football? Oh yes that's right - it's a Spanish club, so it's okay.

United would be mugs to turn that down and frankly he's only played well since CL final 2008 to keep his price up he's been shit most of last season. £80m will buy some solid replacements - Sneijder, Ribery, Valencia = good. Benzema = no. Don't get why everyone loves him so much. They could even afford to keep Tevez now if they wanted to

If they get rid of Tevez now, I'd be questioning Sir Alex's sanity.

And please cut this "CR7" crap. It makes me want to vomit. Besides, he won't be number seven at Madrid, unless he steals the shirt off Raul's back.
If it makes you feel any better I only call him CR7 out of respect for the real Ronaldo. Maybe I should just start calling him CRap then.

Real's spending is funded by the Spanish taxpayers so they can get a easy bailout down the road. I think Perez has a 250 million Euro transfer kitty this summer so he is definitely not done yet.

Without Ronaldo I don't think United can win the Premier league next season and I don't think it matters who the replacements are.

They could just give a little extra half a million to me. I think I will write them a letter.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Am not sure about Tevez anymore because while hes a great player with the loss of Ronaldo they need goals. Rooney played properly can do that but I think for now 15 PL goals and 20 a season is what your going to get out of him until he hits his main peak. Tevez will never utscore Roney he's just not that good, his record for Argentina alone is pretty poor to be generous.

However I have major doubts if Benzema can cut it in the PL because France domestic league compared to PL is a joke and when he was given a real test in EURO 2008 he flopped. He has never lit up the CL either but the counter argurment would be Utd are a better team so more goals would come from him...

David Villa would be the best buy but he will most likely stay in Spain because apparantly spanish footballers die without the sun. Samuel Eto has a breath taking goal record for Barca but I doubt he would leave after they won the CL though if Barca do want Villa then Eto would probably be the one to go unless he switches into Henry's position (not his best way to play if he did). The only ther choice is Hunterlarr from REAL who has never settled.

bottom line its fucking hard to find a decent 20 goals+ striker these days and Fergie should not haved pissed around with Torres 2 years ago and let Liverpool sign him.

Actually I don't think that is much different from their purported philosophy of "you score 3 so we'll score 4".

Excellent. I couldn't care less what Madrid get up to - they still won't win the Champions League - but by weakening United and preventing Chelsea signing Villa, they are doing Liverpool a favour. As long as they keep their hands off Alonso.

Liverpool are not going to get cose to PL since those dorky americans pricks have ZERO money. Not getting Barry was a major blow and you need to buy a good striker for cover plus a winger...

Rafa is dodgy to say the least with £££ and he has no £££ to spend anyway.
