    Agreed. By that reckoning/valuation, wee Messi would be worth something in the region of £250million. To be serious though, in terms of value for money, neither are worth the figures you quote, but I guess in transfer terms, they are worth that, because some idiots are willing to pay it. Sheer lunacy.

    yaya toure only cost man city 4 million more then liverpool are going to to allegedly pay for henderson.

    Now while henderson might be a great prospect. he damn sure isn't the finished product.

    Stupid stupid money. Its this sort of thing that in my opinion is the cause of england being a bit shittr then they should be at international level. Why by an english player for 20 million when you could be a foriegn player of similer qualities for 8-12 million. Its madness.

    Well I spose there also considering age and potential, but it does seem a huge sum considering current ability.

    Or put it in even more perspective Silva only cost £5m more and De Jong about £5m less.
    Mind you we risked a lot on Ballotelli but I doubt Henderson will provide as much entertainment or sell as much merch.

    Someone has posted on an Arsenal rumours site that there's a reason so many (?) players are leaving Arsenal. It's, allegedly, because Arsene is getting the sack and Mark Hughes is being brought in as his replacement.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. NO!

    Nothing to do with the apparent lack of silverware or ambition then.

    Well, exactly.
    And the culprit of this sparky rumour is claiming he got the " scoop" from a friend who works at SSN. So, a Spuds supporting fantasist then :)

    Yeah but we got £8million cash back and the further bonus of not having to pay Stephen Ireland any wages:D

    That was easily the biggest waste of money by anyone last season. Has Ireland gone to back Villa now?

    Wouldn't surprise me if they've tested the waters, but surely even the mentalists at Real realise that what they've got in him can't be had elsewhere? If they're to stand any chance of prising the league from Barcelona next season they need CR to be as good, if not better, than he has been the season past.

    I do hope for their sake Barcelona have been a bit more careful with their wording.

    "Choice of player you say? That little Argentinian kid looks interesting..."

    Second time I've seen the rumour that Barcelona will sell Villa to fund a move for Fabregas (though could just be the original story recycled, obviously). I know they're very keen on Fabregas, but is he really worth getting rid of Villa? I thought Villa was in seriously good form at the moment :confused:

    yeah that one confuses me as well, why the fuck would they get rid of him to fund anyone.

    Sunderland make £8m bid for Ipswich striker Connor Wickham on bbc. anyone know if he's any good? he's only 18 so seems a high price to me.
