You got some statistical evidence to back that up?

Fair play to him for not being a cock about it. Wish some of ours had been like this in the past.
I am not really talking about him being a cock or not, more so about his desire to move. Southampton basically fucked him over but apart from a tweet (which now looks pretty pathetic in the grand scheme of things) he did nothing but bend over and take it,

The only difference between this industry and any other is that it is played out in public, anyone who wants to be move up and better themselves sometimes has to be a bit of a dick about it, we should know, it is usually our players being dicks.

Well pretty down that we didn't throw the required money at this one. Really think he was *that* important.

Hopefully Stambouli can step up, but there are no guarantees of this obviously. Although our scouting seems to be returning to a level of decency again.

Anyway, I think Schneiderlin will be out of reach by the time January comes. One of the bigger boys will pay what they want and he will have a fantastic first half of the season.

Really, they were probably asking for near £30m. I'm notin the least bit surprised that we didn't pay that. Jesus, I bet that was twice as much as Poch thought he was worth yet most think we should have just lumped on. He is not the difference between 6th and 4th. We need goals, and lots of them, before we start to even think about CL IMO.

Very good player, but a no from me at that price. Looks like Levy, Poch and co agreed.

333 pages lol. How long was the Moutinho one? This is becoming a habit of ours.
I seem to recall Andrei Arshavin was 459 pages by the end.

People died in that thread, man. They fucking died. It was like the internet forum equivalent of Saving Private Ryan.
