    Also reports we've bid, and have had accepted, 15.8m for Balotelli. But I think it's absolute bull.

    My friend who is Portuguese has been waxing lyrical's about him. He tells that he will be worth his €37 million release clause.
    Was heavily linked with United this summer/end of season.

    €37 million is a bit steep for a child! Maybe the whole Khedira thing was a smokescreen? :dontknow:

    You can tell a lot about transfer rumours from the odds. People with inside information will put money on these transfers and send the odds crashing. Balotelli and Carvalho are 2/1 to be Arsenal players after this transfer window, which suggests nothing is in place.

    This doesn't mean the transfers won't happen, but there is no way talks can be in anything approaching advanced stages.

    Mourinho is such a piece of ****. The man has never said anything respectful.

    He's the type of guy that you would hate if he was in the same class as you. You would probably beat him up during one point of your school life & would certainly be the guy who goes around looking for trouble.

    I can't stand him.

    It's a shame because he is a good tactician.

    Does nothing to deserve any respect.

    Classless moron

    That celebration was definitely after he converted a penalty.

    That Casillas story has to be made up, as he is 8/1 to be at Arsenal next season. If it does happen this story is nothing more than a fortunate coincidence - throw enough mud and all that.

    Those markets are extremely illiquid, you can probably move most transfers to odds on with £100 staked!

    I know, which means if this story had any substance to it the odds should be much, much lower than they are.

    I suppose there's sort of a 1 way uselessness of these odds then, odds on doesnt necessarily mean a transfer is likely but you would expect it to be odds on if it is to happen. Necessary but not sufficiency. Whenever there are rumours of a big transfer, these odds tend to go odds on but it's mainly the tail wagging the dog. Few £50 bets and the market swings wildly

    Once worked with some guys in financial markets who would regularly bet on prediction markets for their own amusement to see what kind of 'predictions' they could force out of the odds. Colour of the queens hat for the horse racing was popular :laugh:

    Exactly. If something goes odds on it's hard to know if it's because it's happening, or just because people have bet based on rumours. Some books closed the market on Khedira, for example.

    I just find it odd that there has been next to no movement on Casillas.

    Really hope we dont sign Casillas anyway, may as well sign Shay Given if you want a short, ageing keeper who's reflexes are gone.
