Please God don't let us buy Tom Ince. There is a very good reason why we didn't try hard enough to retain him.

Plus we have the younger and superior Sterling.

I wouldn't mind Sturridge for the right price as long as we get a goal scorer as well. Then we can have Suarez, Borini, Sturridge and A N Other striker as our options.

Also TBH I wouldn't mind replacing Reina at all. He has been far below his ability level for 2 seasons now. 6 months - 1 year could be a blip and forgiven for his past brilliance. But 2 years now he has been well below he capability level.

I haven't seen enough of Butland to judge him. However there are 2 gk's in the premier league that can do a job for us in the next 2-3 year and are gettable, plus whilst not world class they are very consistent and thus reliable:-

Al Habsi, Ruddy and Vorm. If we get Butland too then I go for that. Al Habsi and Butland would be a good combo.

Maybe Ruddy, big maybe.

Minolet of Sunderland is one to watch, and one who is on an overall upward curve, I think.

If, in a parallel universe, where we had sufficent funds, then my choice to replace Pepe, if the need arose for whatever reason, would be Asmir Begovic of Stoke.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

You believe what you want dude and I'll do the same. I do wonder why you support the club when you seem to respect nothing about it whatsoever. You call the manager a gobs.hite and players shi.te. How can I take anyone who uses such terms seriously? Do me a favour and support another team.
Cheers,
Ray

there you go again, weasling off.

cornered as usual, totally snookered, your effort at firing abuse totally backfiring.  And as usual, like someone else we know, trying to change the subject matter when cornered.  Like it's not as if others cannae see what's going on.

if you;re gonna fecking abuse me, at least try and think the thing through. 

but don;t berate me for believing all that I read in the papers, and then shi.tting in your own nest by posting newspaper links in your very next post.

*new balls*   :D

With Enrique being re-born further forward have we inadvertantly created a problem at left back?

Downing has shown he's not the answer there either, Robinson is too young yet, so other than play Johnson there and lose his attacking flair on his natural side, is there a case to move a left back much higher up the list of priorities and requirements?

Simply trying to lighten the mood, Ray and stop this developing into a to and fro'. My bad for trying.

bloddy ell, here we go......again, when cornered, you ignore the discussion and fire abuse on other entirely unrelated  issues.

you haven;t mentioned the moon landings, the suez crisis, or the ryder cup, recently.  I wonder why!!!!!

heck, I could get to like playing this game, of firing unrelated matter when cornered.   :)

Ray, you're cold.

Come over to the tropics and enjoy the heat.  It is 6.22pm and around 24 degrees (mid 70s).

Even JPM doesn't look to happy about proceedings. Though I'd not be surprised about him being cold in those shorts.

He seems to have turned ginger in his old age: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McEnroe
