Just trying to bring myself up to speed with the day's musings without scrolling through the entire thread.

In summary, Ross Barkley's now an ITK who says we're signing Shakespeare to replace Dembele at CM?

Not one to bash but that sounds like bollocks to me lads.

I think Poch could coach Barkley to the next level. I for one think this would be very shrewd. He has the talent and I'm sure Poch can harness that.
Sissoko is half the player Barkley is, and Sissoko has peaked.

Barkley would be an interesting signing though I think MF is not really the area we are most in need of and would be far more excited about a prolific well known striker to work with Kane and give us some more depth.

Call me a pessimist but if a deal doesn't happen fairly early then I can't help but suspect it is more of the same old wait till the deadline day and offer WAY less than the players value and act surprised when it gets turned down. It seems too often we get told we are looking at this or that player then go and over pay for a donkey like Sissoko instead

Meh....it was your language just as the US, India, Australia, Canada were your colonies. There are more than 4x more English speakers in the US than U.K. Hell, Both Nigeria and the Philippines have more English speakers than the U.K. And as we all know, English evolved from French and Germanic languages anyway. I will admit one thing though, the word soccer is a British invention.
Have you heard filipinos speak "English"? God, I'm married to a filipina and her English is so poor that she keeps splitting infinitives.

Yes he has talent, the problem is that he doesn't have a very good football brain and you can't teach that. You've either got it or you haven't.

Have I stumbled upon a game of 'chicken' or something? It's gotta be that, right? You're all just trying to see how far you can go without being banned. Sometimes when you look at the thread you must think to yourselves that it's gone wildly off, so maybe I won't add to it, but no, just pile in adding to the spam, fuck it, everyone is at it aren't they? Might as well, one more post won't hurt, feed it, feed it again and feed it some more.........then moan like buggery when the mods snap and you lose your access.

Walker's ability as a player. Where does that sort of stuff belong? Anyone?
