babe of the day
Agreed. Nobody stood out really - poor game.
N'Zonzi - I think would be good for us
Both those snippets seem nonsense. We're never gonna risk that kind of money on Rhodes in the Prem - it's just old news from the last transfer window. And when are Arsenal going to rival us for players.? They have better players in every position, except maybe GK. Why would they want a player we might be after? They're trying to get further in Champs League contention. We're trying to establish ourselves for a first season in the Prem
Never, ever expected to see Robert Mugabe's name mentioned on soccer transfer snippets. What about a sneaky bid for him ?
