Speak for yourself. Perfectly timed as far as I'm concerned.....

Davros out on his arse in the summer, magic.

Of course it won't be his fault...Unfortunately I think, unlike Preston and Derby fans, Forest fans might turn their ire on Doughty rather than Billy. This might be a huge mistake given the bankrolling he has done. I know Forest weren't scoring, but you have to query a manager who goes out and signs a high profile striker on loan when he has a hatful already and has a team deficient in other areas.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Has Davros started talking about himself in the third person yet? That's always a sure-fire sign that it's all going pear-shaped.

Seems that this is Billy's last chance at Forest. From what I've heard, should they not go up this season then Doughty's going to be cutting his losses and slashing costs next season.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

2-0 Win for Forest (1 point from playoff). Because of fixtures of people playing each other, the local news said we needed to win 4 of our last 6 games to get a top 6 finish (3 of the last 5 now). Not sure how right they were but its going to be an interested end to the season no doubt and oh cheers Derby .

Reading that Man Utd have bid for De Gea and I ask WHY . Seriously he's not going to come cheap and with limited funds compared to Chelsea & Man City why not buy a very good but cheaper option like Jussi Jaaskelainen from Bolton...

He's been one of the most consistant keepers over the last 5, 6 years in the PL and is an excellent shot stopper. Also at the age of 35 he is very experienced, cheap and means that Lindegaard can take his time to adapt to Utd and replace him in the future (2/3 years)

Use your money on something you actually need like a winger or attacking central midfield.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

You're welcome! Wish I'd gone last night!!

I think a lot of clubs will potentially be trimming their spend next season if they don't go up this year, and maybe even if they do, it'd be ironic if a team, by virtue of their success, overpent and ended up on the wrong side of the new FIFA regs...

United will give Spurs Rio Ferdinand + £15 mil for Gareth Bale in the Summer. I'm calling it now.

Spurs won't sell Bale yet though if they fail to make the CL for 2 seasons in a row then Bale might get itchy feet for a move to a European elite club - Form withstanding. I doubt Fergie will tweak with his centre backs in the summer though you would think after 2012 and his 10th year "Rio" might be axed. I hope the long term future see's Smalling and Phil Jones at Utd because I see them as the future England paring...

So similar to a Terry/Rio partnership.

Rio is becoming an injury liability, and Smalling is fast becoming one of our best defenders. Redknapp confirmed he tried to sign Rio last summer, but couldn't agree on a price with United. We want Bale, they want Ferdinand.
Bale won't go to Europe, he'll want to stay in the PL. I can guarantee that with Spurs pretty much out of the CL tonight, and with us looking good to get to the final (not to mention a possible treble), the prospect of putting on a United shirt next season will be very tempting for Bale.

But the deal is not a good one for Spurs, why give up Bale for Rio who has 12-24 months ish left in him probably. I don't think Bale will become frustrated at Spurs until Redknapp leaves most likely next summer for the ENG job.

(HT) Spurs 0-0 Real Madrid

Spurs are really up for it, pity the ref doesn't feel the same way because Modric and Pav were denied two penalty kicks. Big games ruined by refs - just another day in football.
