    Nani and Anderson back for the Liverpool game. Rooney out but expected back on Wednesday which if I'm not mistaken will give us a full squad at this time of the season for the first time in years.
    Rooney nailed on to start then.

    Aside from his debut isn't he usually shit coming back from injuries? Needs games under his belt I reckon. Though we've won every game him and RVP have started together..

    You've jinxed it now and RVP will break his leg on Sunday :D.

    Are you saying your intent was to weave that conversation towards a discussion about Big Ben in order to land the "punchline" that you were in fact from London, having already set up the "joke" by having a whine about the stereotype that all Man U fans are from London?

    No, he's just pretending to be from London.

    Family problem, not football related. Wants to go back to Argentina.

    I love how Colo hasn't handed in a transfer request but has asked to be allowed to leave. Eh?
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 13:37:02
    Never really understood what "putting in a transfer request" actually involves. They make it sound so official, like something has to happen because of it.

    Pretty sure it's just something in writing signalling your desire to leave, much like a letter of resignation.

    Edit: Yeah, probably defined in the contract somewhere

    Traditionally wasn't it always:

    Sold - gets percentage of sale fee.

    Transfer request submitted - sold without any percentage of the sale.

    He could just do a Tevez and take indefinite leave whilst being paid.

    Ah ok, didn't know that. Interesting. Makes sense.

    Perhaps you forfeit your "loyalty bonus" as well.

    I must have missed this when it happened but apparently Pardew and Colo had a disagreement a few weeks back.

    Wouldnt be surprised if this has got something to do with it....

    Yeah, I don't think it's necessarily % of transer fee, but a settlement on your existing contract. Would have to see what TSF said!

    Is there any other manager that far up his own ass with so little reason to be?

    To be fair he has not had funds available to him.

    I think he does talk some guff but I also think he's a good manager and doing a good job.

    Dont forget, hes 100% responsible for the way the Swans play.

    Nothing to do with Roberto Martinez....nothing at all.

    :rolleyes:

    Martinez and Rodgers both take credit.

    Some seem to want to give due respect to Martinez and Laudrup but conveniently miss out Rodgers...

    ALLEN WAS FIFTEEN MILLION!!! WTF!

    I always assumed he was a freebie that Rodgers thought was worth a punt. Christ.

    Anyway. I still like Rodgers as a manager, despite having no respect for him.

    Can't argue there. He's spent money.
