Re: Xmas Presents...

PSG will pay £140M in the summer.

And they can have him.

Goretzka and Lemar next, to add to Keita. And there's chat about Butland too.

Gomez will join VVD once Clyne has got his Rio holiday out of the way.

Re: Xmas Presents...

its why football is shit, fucked and ... fucking boring.  75 million quid ???? id wager Alan Hansen is still a better defender.


I get loyalty to club, city, etc and believe me I could never follow another football club but this, the disconnect is huge, malfunction... the link between fan and club is no more.

Re: Xmas Presents...

In the year 2000, Leeds United made Rio Ferdinand Britain's most expensive footballer by paying £18 Mil for him from West Ham.

That beat the £15 Mil Newcastle paid for Shearer from Blackburn four years earlier.

Ferdinand became the world's most expensive defender, beating the £10.75 Mil Manchester United paid for Jaap Stam two years earlier.

Leeds paid this through the surprise Champions League qualification, ahead of Barcelona, earning Leeds a further £20 Mil.

Leeds sold Ferdinand to Manchester United for £30 Mil two years later, after first asking for £35 Mil.

I've since read that David Byrne formerly of Talking Heads (apparently a die-hard Dundee fan) was on FOX Sports tonight, and though dismayed at the price, he did say that the whole issue was "the same as it ever was".

Irrelevant and a million miles away from the current situation.
Besides..Ferdinand was class not simply above average!

This was done by a window licking mental case that got a hard on by writing big cheques.  We're still paying for those decisions.  I suspect the scummers will not be on the hook for so long.

Leeds United:  Boiling Barnsley's piss since 2018.

I've got one of them! Didn't know they were called that.

Dentist recommended it to me when she was worried about my gums.

It works - gums are all fine.
