Firstly, if Liverpool are after him, how the bloody hell can we hijack the deal? What can we offer that Liverpool cant to a foreigner?
Secondly, if Ashton isnt going to be playing until the beginning of next season and he is brought in during the summer, than he wont be playing until the beginning of next season either... so that argument is fundamentally flawed
what about tevez, playing for little old corithians befor we got him now at the mancs, ok his an argie bargie but still south american
Are you taking the piss with this comments out of interest? Tevez cost lowly Corithians about 14 million quid, won the title with them, was named the player of the season in the league, he had a dozen or so international caps and was one of the highest profile players in the continent when we signed him... the implication that he wouldnt be playing for a massive european club right now if it wasnt for west ham is pretty funny imo
