    One he really doesn't deserve, he was playing pretty well until his injury but he's not a player that should be commanding 50k a week. I like Nige too, I think he has a place in the squad but our wage bill is already way out of control anyway.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    He wants £50k a week? O_o. He's decent, but not five million pennies a week decent!

    Hah, I think that might even be on the last page!

    Regarding Nige, that is just forum talk, so I'm not sure if it's true that he's asking for that much but it is true that he is stalling his new contract, along with Ashley Young.

    Just noticed Rooney apologised to the fans.

    I'm officially bored of this saga now.

    Hopefully that is the end of that. Do you think he'll return to form now everything is sorted? He certainly looked lean last night. Touch a bit rusty which is to be expected.

    I'm sure he will eventually. It's been so long since he's been in form, I've almost forgotten how good he is.

    Well can understand Young, he is in with a shout of joining one of the top clubs (or maybe us...come on Ash you know you want to, and we need wingers and English born players! ;) but Reo Coker must be purely for money, can't really see any better sides wanting to come in for him.

    I reckon it's Arsenal or abroad for him, I can't see where else he would go and fit in appropriately. We've had this discussion a couple of time now, I think. I'd be very disappointed indeed to see him go to Liverpool or citeh.

    Yeah he would fit Arsenal quite well...though they don't usually play wingers so he may have to go more central there. Can imagine, it must be pretty frustrating knocking on the door of the CL spots, but then seeing players like Barry and Milner leave to join similar level clubs (well, with heavy amounts of oil money thrown in aswell) preventing you from just getting that step further. Although who knows, City may offer you another mad deal like they did with Milner, £20m + SWP? I don't think we'd have the cash to buy him, although Henry's supposed transfer policy would accommodate him. I'd like to see us get him, or Adam Johnson, but obviously don't want him leaving you for peanuts if he does go, you deserve to get a fair price for him.

    Assou-Ekotto has signed a new five year contract at Spurs.

    Good news. He's a little mental and at times a slight liability, but quality LBs are a rarity and Benny is the best we've had in a long long time. Still young and getting better as well. I'm pleased.

    Good news kalel. He might not like football that much, but he is pretty good at it. And as you say quality LB's are hard to come by these days.

    /looks at £4m Paul Konchesky

    The weird thing about him not liking football, is it seems to make him actually be more of a professional about it.

    Some footballers seem to forget that it’s not just a hobby, it’s their job. If they’re not up for it one weekend they don’t put the work in, but Benny’s work ethic is excellent and although he sometimes has moments of madness, I’ve never seem him give less than his best.

    Should do what you did with the original Kalel - list the clubs and then say who supports them.
    Not a bad idead, but doesn't everyone know who everyone else supports now?

    Regarding the old thread being locked. Craigy tells me:

    They're just fans of “football the way it’s meant to be played™”.
