    Nice bit of bluffing with the olympic stadium then.

    Well, now we get to see if it was indeed a bluff anyway.

    Now that I've got an idea of how much cheaper it would be to go to the Olympic Stadium, I'm not so sure.

    Footballers and their money

    Interesting read Dougs, a nice insider view on the trappings of fame and fortune. Shame that some players do get targeted when they go back home.

    Shouldn't really laugh at that money burning thing that he talks about, but I did find this comment amusing:

    top stuff! there's a similar story to the 50 one attributed to a young ryan giggs. some lad saying 'i can do what you do', he burns a 50 saying, 'can you do this?'

    :D

    We can play without Fabregas, no doubt - and have done many times in the past, so I don't agree with Kalel at all. But he's still our most important player and naturally we miss him when he's not there

    I wasn't saying that you can't play without Fabregas, just that when you do play with him, the quality of your performance depends on the quality of his performace.

    It's the talisman affect. Same thing happens with Gerrard at Liverpool (except they are shit without him).

    Ah I get you. Certainly if he plays well, we play well. But there have been quite a few games where we've played well and Fabregas either hasn't played or has been below par. Sometimes to the point where we're not as worried about next season...

    Indeed, when he's shit, Liverpool are shit. This is my point.

    Well that depends entirely on whether they continue to be lol worthy or not. Gerrard can be a great player but he does love his Hollywood passes when it makes more sense to just pass the ball about ten feet to retain possession.

    According to an ITKlol, a midfielder is done and dusted but wouldn't name them. Juninho perhaps?

    WTF. I'm staggered actually. Appreciate he needs time to gain match fitness, but hoped it would be with us, starting with the Carling Cup next week. Maybe it's something we learned with Eduardo - give him time outside of the pressure etc.

    Edit: Ah, we have one reserve game between now and Jan 10th. That'll be why then

    Interesting. I'm not sure about the link with Juninho but I'd be more happy to have a short term signing than bringing in a long term, unless it's a defensive midfielder but even then we've got a few youngsters that could come good so I'm not sure if we need yet another long term high contract midfielder.

    Should do what you did with the original Kalel - list the clubs and then say who supports them.

    The thread still exists, you just can't add to it.

    Whether it'll be deleted or not I have no idea. My post count will be halved if that happens to be the case.

    I'd still like a deeper explanation as to why it had to be closed. I probablywon't understand the reply ,but it'd be nice to know.

    Bloody hell this weekend is coming round quickly.

    Some mega games..

    Villa-Arsenal: This can go either way I feel (yeah yeah... obvious) - Arsenal are there for the taking, or they'll finally find some backbone and stuff Villa, impossible to say.

    Bolton-Blackpool: Massive game for both clubs on-field, big derby off-field... and that, to me, says draw all over.

    Everton-West Brom: West Brom are suffering, Everton improving still, home win.

    Fulham-Birmingham: Difficult to call... draw.

    Man Utd v Blackburn: Home win all day long, prove me wrong you disgusting fat bung-taking Walrus - I love fat Sam. :p

    Stoke-Man City: Draw.

    West Ham-Wigan: Christ... anything is possible

    Wolverhampton-Sunderland: Draw

    Newcastle v Chelsea: I fancy Newcastle to compound Chelsea's bad run... narrow Toon win

    Tottenham v Liverpool: Spurs' good run to come to an end with a share of the points... draw.

    I HAVE SPOKEN ;)

    Don't know nothing about Makoun, anybody fill me in? I'm sure there's a youtube video of him looking awesome somewhere.

    Defensive midfielder. 26/27 I believe. From Cameroon. Pretty fast and a good tackler. Is pretty good on PES and FM.

    In short: like Essien but not as good :)

    Like Essien but not as good sounds the ticket to me! I did do a quick youtube search and he seems to have good feet and a bit of vision. I hope the link is solid, I like Nigel mediocre but I've read some stuff that makes it sound like he's getting too big for his boots and making big wage demands.
