Castrol - either a multi or what a cracking start by a new poster. Quality work!
We've just sent one of our better prospects Francis Coquelin to Lorient for a season. Koscielny should be on his way soon it looks like. Link here
edit: I hope castrol sticks around though. He could keep this thread inflamed over the summer.
Inter and Real Madrid are not far off from agreeing a €30m transfer fee for Maicon. And nobody can blame Benitez as he has little to do with transfer dealings (aside from requesting players). Wouldn't be bad piece of business from an Inter POV, if they want to cash in on Maicon as he turns 29 in little over a month, and becsides he wants a new challenge/more money (depends if you're a Maicon fanboy/girl or hate him) at Real Madrid.
Citeh have all but signed Yaya Toure for £27m and will pocket £90k a week in wages. Martin Petrov joins Notlob on a free transfer.
Yaya's better than all of them IMO.
Meh, maybe he is but I don't think the difference is so pronounced that it's worth spending nearly 30 million quid on him when you've already got the other three. Still, I suppose the two key points here are:
1) This is still just a rumour
2) Citeh won't even notice the money is gone
Definately seems like a lot of green for a defensive mid, particularly when they already have a few. Plus they already have a Toure. That said, he's a better DM than Barry and co. And a better Toure than Toure, haha.
Jesus brings life eternal
As if you wouldn't pay out the nose for a person named "Yaya".
That's the best name ever.
I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
Forever, more than just surviving.
THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND
I'm still ashamed RSC plays for my club. Makes me physically ill.
FWIW, Yaya is someone I've wanted us to buy for quite some time. Can play in defence as well and is a much better player than both Barry and de Jong. I'm not sure which one he'll replace though. Maybe Barry will play some LB? Though tbh I expect us to buy a LB before the "summer" is out.
Zlatan, Silva and Kjaer from here on and I'll cry the manliest tears.
If you get Yaya, Zlatan and Silva I'll support Man City. Forever.
