*Robinho not generally considered intelligent by the Spanish press...
..... this January is proving a tough one to do business in. All this talk of Kaka. Messi et al is very nice and sells newspapers and gets little idiots in a tizz
why would we want basketball players??
harlem globetrotters - term re-adopted in football, often used to describe Madrid's policy of recruiting established superstars - ultimately ending in tears when egos tore the dressing room apart (see also Barca, last season). Hughes is untested here - can he handle all the primadonnas?
if, as you prefer, he opts for a load of local journeymen, then it might save their Prem status but I suspect the Arabs will want flair players in, to sell to their markets - so all up in the air - it would be really embarrassing to have to resort to clowns like Bellamy.
yours, the 'donkeymilker'
needs must at the minute, bellamy, parker et al are not my fave players but too many teams enjoy playing us at the minute, that type of player are not easy to play against. as for prima donnas, there is/was some unrest that seemed for the main part to be centered around elano (who has a rep for this type of thing, he came tagged with a warning from shaktar doneskt) and the young & easliy influenced Jo which MH seems to be sorting out and may result in being elano sold and jo farmed out on loan, I dunno, I like his rhetoric though (talks cheap yes) and it's refreshing that the board are behind him for now. In truth it is a bit of a mess but it was never going to be sorted out over night...!!!
in truth, I don't mind Man City that much - wealth or not. All those years of suffering - the heroism of Shaun Goater, the various managers, the inbuilt masochism - I kind of warm to that
the really VILE clubs for me, imo (for various reasons) are Chelsea, Man Utd, Leeds, Millwall, MK Dons, Real Madrid, Rangers
we're the team everyone loves to love
agree on man u
MK dons?? explain what they done to you??
