    Actually why are you bothering with transfer rumours full stop?

    It's not like there's no football...
    You make a compelling point.

    Well I just don't get it. Why bother with that bullshit when we have one of the best world cups in my life being played out?

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    His wife lives in Barcelona incidentally.
    Is that really true? I've heard it before, but surely it can't be.
    As a proclaimed family man, if it's true, there's no way he could stay in England for much longer if his wife and kids live in Spain. I know I wouldn't.

    But then, the Kop is a magical place, worth abandoning your family for.

    Because it whiles away the hours at work when there is no WC on?

    I suppose. I just read up on the world cup games that were played last night and the previews for today instead.

    Then again, I hate transfer bullshit at any time.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    The world cup can still inspire some transfer debate. For example who could United convince to waste their money on Nani?

    Can see a few Costa Rica boys getting moves into Europe after impressing. That's what the World Cup is all about.

    Rumour is, she's got family there. Not actually his wife. Either way...

    The world cup is about players engineering moves to other clubs?

    That's become the norm after world cups happens every 4 years.

    The norm doesn't make it the purpose.

    Yeah, I'm pretty certain that's not true. His kids go to school in Liverpool and his wife seems to be at all the games.

    I dunno, all these things add up to help someone if there is a move in the offing. It's not the primary reason of course, just a consideration.

    Looks like Ander Herrera to United could be announced very soon, everywhere in Spain saying it's done and could be completed today. 36m, 4yr contract.

    Better late than never eh, Ed.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I expected United to be aiming a little higher.

    I've heard that his buy out clause goes up to 40m on the 1st of July. Maybe Woody is learning?! :)

    That's assuming this isn't total bullshit, which it probably is. :p

    I take it you've never seen him play? He's had an excellent season.

    We need more in midfield, but he's a great addition.

    Hes pretty much exactly the kind of player you should be going for.

    But, yeah, I do know a few united fans who seem to think that the only way back into the big time is to spunk the entire WAR CHEST on two or three marquee signings when, in reality, they need about six good players rather than a couple of great ones.

    That's just retarded though. We practically need an entire team from midfield back to DeGea. We need to spend money on a 1 or 2 great signings in key positions (Midfield + defence) then many decent squad players.

    Then cull the useless twats from last season.

    Although we don't want to do a Spurs...that didn't exactly work unless they count coming 6th an achievement. :p

    I've seen him play a few times. He's alright in a lopsided league surrounded by Basques.
