Utd were able to get Kagawa because they are a huge club and he looked set to join them from the beginning, all things considered dortmund managed to milk as much out of utd as possible.
In a vacuum and on a footballing level utd got a fantastic deal(a quality player who will improve them tremendously for a reasonable transfer sum) but when you talk about the value of a deal then market value is one of the most important variables.
calling a transfer where you play slightly above market value "sick value" is just wrong
Fair enough, just semantics them. "On a footballing level utd got a fantastic deal" is what Raz was trying to say I'm pretty sure. Who cares about any other level? Maybe Real Madrid could have got him for 14 million or something but who gives a damn. Utd got a great player for a great price. Sick value.
Does anyone think there is gonna be a Whohellhe who emerges from the tourny that might turn into hawt properdy?
there always seems to be someone like that. I do wonder with the teams involved this year though if there will be someone that "comes out of nowhere" like arshavin did. Obviously it's hard to predict, but it seems that a lot of the young talent is more of a known quantity right now
Kind of surprised Danny Guthrie's available on a free. I might be wrong but I felt like he contributed a decent amount to the Newcastle squad, guess it signals the progress Newcastle have made as a club.
Danny Murphy will do a good job for someone as well.
We extended Santana untill 2014...very good news
3 solid CBs locked up for next season, after that Subotic is likely gone and my guess is Santana takes over. Just get one more CB this or next season and we're set.
