    Cracking keeper, shot stopping is amazing. Not sure how right in the head he is but maybe grown up over the years.
    This save against Werder Bremen is one of the best.

    Soldado bid from Spurs rejected, apparently.
    Maybe the bid was just for show. Heh.

    I'd quite like it if Rooney moved on and proved a point at Chelsea by winning the league tbh.

    What point does that prove?

    I've turned off all the avatars and crap, so don't expect me to be impressed by yours.

    My only criticism of Levy is that he suffers ever so slightly from 'can dish it out, but can't take it' syndrome.

    I.E. he is unbelievably bullish when others want our players, and plays ludicrous hardball, squeezing every penny out possible. And that's great. But when the shoe's on the other foot, he does seem to stay in a similar mindset of "well fuck you then".

    I guess at heart he's always protecting the interests of the club. I'd just like to see him get over the finish lines a bit more with these deals. So many seem to get to 90% done only to fall away.

    Well, Moyes quote about him being backup in case Van Persie gets injured seemed either naive or disrespectful.

    I just think Rooney isn't valued as highly as a player as he should be and I'd like him to do well.

    Surely not when Jay Spearing is available?

    That their how the fuck did they get to the UEFA Cup Final run ?

    There was some game in that with the opposition having some ridiculous amount of shots on target and still lost.

    Sounds very familiar. It's no surprise that we are both regarded as very well run clubs though - maximising income from assets whilst not over-exposing ourselves to risk. Or some such nonsense.

    I thought that was largely taken in the wrong context, from what I read into it he was attempting to praise Rooney by saying he is versatile and can slot into Van Persie's role if there is an injury rather than him saying Rooney would be a bench warmer. Maybe Moyes needs to work on his communication now he is Man Utd manager as people seem a lot swifter in getting het up about his comments.

    Yeah, I did hear it second hand and journalists do love to frig with context.

    I think my perception of Rooney being undervalued in world football stands though, I mean even during his supposedly bit part season last year, where he was played wide or in midfield, I think he still managed about 19 goals.

    What's being out in Asia got to do with the price of eggs?

    @ILoveThrashMetal No way he would have been allowed to go out if a deal had been made. Real would want him in a bubble by now.

    The mighty Yokohama with the late winner.

    Luckily Welbeck seemed to pick up a knock so it's not all bad.

    If he goes he goes, which he definitely will, so no point fretting about it.

    Although it's rare that the first you hear of a deal being done is a player agreeing terms. Those stories tend to be bollocks.

    I will be disappointed in some ways to see Bale leave the premiership, he is a cut above so many other players and not witnessing his amazing goals will diminish the premiership a bit. Of course, he always dicks on Villa so from that point of view it'll be great ;-)

    You are a factory of sadness.

    But again if you owned Real would you want him flying out to Asia to play when you are signing a big deal for him?

    No surprise with the Bale rumours. there is a best of video of Spurs new signing Chadli, even shows off the same goal celebration as Bale so ready made replacement there :)

    Marca seem to be suggesting the deal was agreed a month ago. Sounds like rubbish to keep their audience happy.

    I don't really see what the Asia thing has to do with anything. Until they sign him, he's a spurs players and comes with us. Doesn't mean a signing can't happen, just that it hasn't yet happened.
