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.
Of course it's a good deal if we make it a player + cash offer. They'd get a massively experienced defender who can marshall their defense and give them more strength at the back, and something in the region of £15m on top of that.

Plus, I reckon Bale would want to come here so he can play in the same squad as Giggs before he retires.

I think that values Bale too cheaply, yeah Rio's good, but he's old and increasingly injury prone. I think utd would have to sweeten the deal better than Rio plus just £15 million.

Prophetic words, but you do it so well.......!

Trying to decide who I want to get that final playoff spot is tricky - Forest, Leeds, Millwall? Thank God Hull are in with a shout!

That was one hell of a freakish fluke goal though!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So it's a Man city Stoke final. On the down side I don't really like either of them, but on the plus side at least one of the usual suspects isn't gonna win the cup (ok City will probably soon be one of the usual suspects, but at the moment they still haven't won the cup in 30odd years!)

I think Stoke could turn them over however...

Arsenal vs Liverpool yesterday seems to have been fun (although Wenger won't have enjoyed it much), I don't think I've ever seen a game with 12 minutes injury time.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Wenger needs to stop acting like a baby at times, he seem to refuse to shake Kenny's hand. The injury time was right because of the horrific Carragher incident and then the other 4 minutes were mainly there because the most of that was taken up by Arsenal goal celebrations, Arsenal players pissing around in the wall for the free kick and the same for the penatly kick.

Wenger needs to concentrate on his players not kicking other players in their 18 yard box when there running away from goal

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

That Arsenal-Liverpool game was the funniest thing I've seen in football for a while. Wenger has only his own players to blame for the time rolling over so much - why did they take so long to set up the wall against Suarez, or set the ball for the penalty? What on earth was Eboue thinking!? Comedy gold though, when Dalglish told Wenger to piss off - it's about time someone did.

I'm backing Stoke for the Cup. I hate Man City and hope they win nothing. Also, Stoke knocked Cardiff out and I have a grudging respect for whichever team does that, so wish them well. Also, Stoke are not the wretched anti-football side the media try to perpetuate the stereotype of. Yes, they can mix it and hoof it and rely on a long throw, but they play some tidy stuff against a lot of teams.

Also, Pulis is a Newport boy so I have something in common with him.

Cardiff City, meanwhile, continue to romp to promotion glory...

Only Arsenal could take the lead in the 98th minute and still not win......!

Congrats to Stoke. Hometown team, although I've never supported them. Bolton just didn't turn up yesterday, and Stoke were brilliantly clinical.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Think we must have played a different QPR to most teams this season as both times we've played them they've looked decidedly average. Should probably have taken 4 points off them this year, arguably all 6. 2-0 up going into injury time at our place, and then had the best chance last night as well.

Still, another point closer to safety. 9 points clear of 3rd bottom now with far superior GD and only 12 points to play for.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Poor old Tarrabat wasn't very happy when he was subbed was he

Was a good game, if we could play like that more often, and if we get a few more bodies in in the summer, then we should have a much better season next year!

You might disagree, but games like that suggest to me we could do a lot worse than offer Robbie one more year (on vastly reduced wages) especially given we've lost Greeny for 9 months. I think Sav would snap our hands off if we offered, and I get the feeling he's getting cold feet about retiring.

My only real panic last night came when Hulse came on...but he was a bit anonymous really!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think my preference would be to get someone who could fill the Savage role, without it actually being Savage. I like Savage, and am not one of his boo-boys, but I do think that another year's going to push it in terms of him becoming a liability. He has been at times this season already, and whilst he has some good games, he has just as many anonymous ones as well when teams work the ball around him. I'd like to see a 30 year old midfielder coming in, experience preferably at premier league level and still has a few years left in the tank to mentor the likes of Bailey and Addison through games. I know one player that we're interested in for the summer is such a player, Lee Bowyer. Although I'd imagine we'll join a list of clubs after him.

I was concerned when Hulse came on, usually former players always score against us. Thankfully, not this time!

In terms of the summer, the Fielding transfer is done and dusted, Robinson and Ward will apparently be here as well, and then another six or so on top of that. One striker that we're supposedly interested in that I wouldn't mind seeing back here is Danny Graham. Rubbish the first time he was here, but a lot maturer striker now and banging them in for Watford.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The Graham rumour is weird because I remember him being shite for us last time, but then again he was v young at the time. I do wonder how we're supposed to prise him away from Watford on our budget! I also fear he might be one of those strikers who has one fantastic season, then reverts to being rubbish!

Know what you mean about Sav, the Bowyer rumour's been floating around for a while, I just see Savage as a smarter and better role model for our youngsters if I'm honest...although maybe Bowyer's mellowed a bit with age?

Definitely want us to sign Ward, less certain about Robinson...quick and tricky but his end product seems terrible!

My Villa fan mate came to watch the game l;ast night, when Hulse came on he said everyone fears their ex players...I had to point out Derby had more right than most to be worried...not surfe of any other team who had a former goalie score against them!
