Never been a fan of England's football style over the years when a lot of other countries either changed their style or were more entertaining to watch.  That and the fact that a good majority of the team as well were usually made of pre-Madonnas that always blamed others for their piss poor performances.

 

The only English player I really enjoyed watching though was David Beckham.

10 people where at the airport to greet Gerrard. Good choice going to the MLS.

Wish they would have gotten Pirlo instead. Terrible idea of MLS to give NY 2 teams.

So Nani's off to Fenerbahce permanently. Such a shame he couldn't keep consistent. Would be a world beater one game & then the next look like the guy from Sunday League who thinks he's Ronaldo. Read something how he has the second highest minutes-to-assist ratio ever in the BPL (only behind Fabregas).

Is he any good? I've seen his name bandied about a bit so I YouTube'd him and found jack shit pretty much. Couple of low quality video clips but that's not really much to go off of. I've heard he's quality though.

So the new story is that if RM don't sign De Gea by Sunday, he'll renew. And he also wants them to first get rid of Casillas, apparently. This transfer saga is a mess lmao.

Sounds like it makes sense, since Casillas is a snake. Wouldn't want him with any chance to *Censored* up my career.

Ramos is the same. Both seem like cocks who'd try and *Censored* you over. They're both pretty shit now too. If Real can get rid of both in the same window and get De Gea and Kos in (and somehow make a profit), then that's a brilliant window straight away.

It's not actually as much of a mess as people think.

 

That story is false anyway, pretty sure.

 

What's actually happened... Real Madrid obviously want De Gea, we're definitely in negotiations with them about it. No doubt about that. We seem to want Ramos & have placed a bid what was rejected supposedly. Two separate deals which may well become linked if Madrid end up letting him go (not that I think he even wants to leave) 

 

I don't understand why some fans think De Gea should clarify what's actually going on. There's no need, when does a player ever do that?

 

I'm not happy De Gea is off, especially for a minimal transfer fee. I imagine we've been offering him a new contract for well over a year anyway, but he just won't sign it. He wants to go home, which sucks. 

 

Could have at least done what Ronaldo did & sign a new contract so we can get a respectable fee. 

 

Oh & Ramos isn't crap or anything along those lines is he so lets not even pretend. I've even been one of those 'is he as good as people think?' but he's still a top class CB.

 

Genuinely don't think we'll get him though (not like my false Depay defeatism). I just don't think he wants to leave.

Doubt he's arsed really. He more or less said he thinks of it as retirement.

Are we stil on Lloris? I honestly doubtful about having Valdes as number 1, especially with dat inconsistently shit defence. Ramos though, if we managed to get him for De Gea, would make the defence so much better with Evans leaving in a similar swap deal for Coleman. If and only if that happens, then I don't mind having Valdes as number 1.

Is the Evans-Coleman thing a straight swap or are we offering them Evans + cash for Coleman (according to the reports). If it's the former, no chance of it happening.
