Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't doubt Jordan Henderson is a decent player and well could turn into a very good one but a deal eventually worth £20 million is INSANE. Now the papers tend to over estimate transfers sometime but anything close to this price is stupid unless a large sum is add ons depending on games he plays and breaks into ENG team etc.

Liverpool need to replace Gerrard with someone who can score goals and Charlie Adams would of been a good fit for that, Jordan is more of a Jack Wilshere type player who assists.

Liverpool need at least 1 winger and a Left Back now.

The official price is 16.5

I think N'gog is also going the other way.

When Meireles played that position he was awesome. He got shifted on the right again towards the end of the season and his formed dipped.

As for wingers, Adam Johnson would be my pick but I doubt City would sell.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

£16.5 million is still too much IMO and as for Adam Johnson, he's too good to sit on the bench if I was him I would consider forcing an exit come January if Machini doesn't play him more. Its strange how both ENG/Man City Coaches are italian and don't fancy him because of how attacking he is They don't seem to get him as a player, while a Liverpool or Spurs would get the best out of him IMO.

Just read via Henry Winter's (Telegraph journo) that Phil Jones is having a medical for the move to Man Utd. I thought he was with ENG at the U21 championships ??? I guess Evans is going to be sold then, I can see Sunderland wanting him.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A pre Deal for next season would of made better sense, even if Evans is sold now WHERE is he going to fit into the squad to play enough games for such a price

De Dea, Young and Jones is looking at around £50 million and yes he could sell some players + loans to make funds but I doubt he can afford a decent central midfielder now.

Henderson, Young and Jones. All English, all hideously over-priced.

Just another day in the transfer market.

Meanwhile, Jay Bothroyd signs for Everton and Chris Burke for Birmingham. I can only assume he likes McLeish, why else would he go there?

I don't mind the Young £14-16 million price were hearing though of course thats mainly due to 1 year left on his contract. The other two are not worth that sort of money and I doubt Henderson ever will be though I have high hopes for Phil Jones.

One club tells you want they want and you give it them or try barter them down.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

It looks more and more that Nasri may end up joining Utd, I scoffed at the idea when I first heard but they may just pull the dam thing off

I would take Nasri over Sneijder for the simple reason he's younger, far cheaper but in the centre he can create and score goals. £10-15 million due to last year of his contract and he seems pretty intent to leave Arsenal for a better club.

United could do worse than sign the pair of them. Scholes is retiring, Carrick isn't good enough, that's reason enough, but bottom line, Nasri and Sneijder are both better than any of the current Man Utd midfield IMO.

Edit: According to the BBC, Sneijder has pledged his future to Inter Milan.

Well I see Martinez has turned down Villa!

Anyone else feel they might sruggle next year?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Surprising with Villa's continuing search for a manager... Houllier may not have been a fan favourite there but he did cull the large squad and a significant wage bill (82% of turnover?) as was his remit.

3 managers have now turned it down after talks with the club, they may be losing Young and Downing soon - but there's some quality prospects coming through, decent players already there, and should be money in the kitty for the new man.

A more professional and fitter squad too, apparantly...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't think Villa are relegation candidates but they are set to have a poor season. I think Randy wants to bring through more players from the academy like Kenny has done at Liverpool but the problem is there academy is nowhere near as good.

You also have to say Wigan will be relegation candidates again next season but I guess even if they go down he will keep his job, such a hard task at the JJB stadium.
