    I'm bored :p

    I think the Fergie quotes are quite relevant though. Either he's a backtacking cunt or he was pissed when he gave the quote in December and forgot about it. Very undignified turnaround for a Knight of the Realm.

    Bit like Benitez buying a player, then deciding 5 months later, they don't want him and selling him back to the same club for less money

    Not really though is it?

    Unfortunately Keane wasn't actually Benitez' signing anyway. Hence selling him back to Spurs, Parry fucking off and Benitez signing a new contract with more autonomy re transfers.

    Have you heard about this film?

    ho ho ho

    at least me made it that far

    Didn't see you saying something like that

    no sir

    never thought you'd use that excuse:rolleyes:

    a Manager not responsible for the players that get signed?

    that makes benitez look like a really shit manager if he didn't even get a say in who his club brings in

    no wonder liverpool have been trophyless for so many years

    Three. Long painful era.

    Not an excuse a fact ;). You missed the whole political struggle going on at Anfield last year did you? It was the reason Benitez was going to leave. He wanted Barry last summer. Yanks told him Alonso had to go if he wanted Barry. Parry was pushing for Keane and the Yanks agreed a striker was more important than another midfielder.

    Benitez gently froze Keane out to test the Yanks and was close to fucking off. Head to head power struggle resulted in Parry leaving and Keane getting sold. Now Benitez has a new contract and the majority of control on transfers.

    well by poverty I meant the poverty of silverware.

    needless to say though that the debt United are in is external, the club itself still made a record turnover last year.

    Indeed it's a big IOU and at some point that debt will be called in. Turnover is one thing, profit another.

    Actually it depesses the hell out of me, regardless of teams supported, that football is full of terms like this :(

    I saved up and bought mine myself!

    I Had more money at 13 then I've ever had since

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    Independent today said it was £80 million in one lump payment.

    Well I paid for it, but being 13 at the time she had to do all the credit stuff.

    Anyway, the point being that Real are basically like my nan buying me a shiny new toy on the never-never...

    Yeah, but then the Independent also scream at the world about how everyone are bastrds for killling polar bears, and have 1 journalist and his almost-dead dog to sub him.

    Plus your potential factoid makes my whole 'Really, there's no differnce between Real and My Nan' thing a no hoper.
