    Its funny how the asian fanbase appear to be trying to ape the worst possible traits of the english fans.

    Goal reckon Man Utd are in for Fellaini now they're giving up on Fabregas.

    Was assuming at least one of him, Jelavic or Baines would be off.

    Fellaini to UTD has been going around for a while. Don't rate him myself but he seems to have a lot of fans.

    plus his release clause runs out at the end of July, the rumours will be there regardless

    Would rather Fellaini left than Baines. We still played well without the former. Not that I wouldn't rather keep him.
  • Deleted user 30 July 2013 07:13:51
    I think he should sign me.

    We've been linked with Fellaini for ages but as far as I know it's all been paper talk and we've never bid or even enquired about him. I don't think we're interested and I don't think it'll happen.

    Gordon Taylor, welcome to the Premier League. Quite why this year is any different to any other since the big bucks started to roll in, but there you go. Not sure how players will receive this either, your union head really shouldn't be attacking his members, even if it's a relatively small number overall.

    Haha Arsenal.com are retweeting people who are excited their Emirates cup tickets arrived.

    I am tempted to write back "mugs."

    I have a new theory on how to fix the transfer system.

    Just get rid of transfers all together. It's not allowed. A contract is a two-sided commitment, in that the player is promising to play for that club for however long a contract they sign, no matter how well they do or who else might want them, but the club are also committing to keep paying them for that amount of time no matter how shit they might become or whatever.

    So you'll probably end up with shorter contracts, but the option is still there for mega ones. And the whole nonsense around windows and fees is finished.

    Ach, it'll be people who don't get to go very often, leave them be. The club have made a massive fauz pas by inviting Galatasary though.

    Apart from the whole give your notice and move to a new job/give you notice and terminate your employment thing that they have in other businesses, after all. So what you're saying is it's exactly the way it doesn't work in other businesses, after all.

    As has been said before, it relies on *everyone* turning a blind eye to it but it wont be long before one a lower league player decides its against his human rights to fester on the bench again.

    No, in the business world you have fixed term contracts where both parties are committing to the length of them (or at least risking pretty severe legal and financial implications if they don't).

    You'd still have movement of players in the summer to get excited about.
