    Hopefully our kids will get more first team action, especially during the Carling Cup or something.
    I think the five Carlo mentioned last season will all start the Carling Cup games plus be involved slightly more reguarly.

    Apparently it's up to £7m (installments etc) for Stoch which isn't bad.

    2.5m initial payment though. Although I guess that's pretty good as he hasn't got a look-in with firs tteam football for us, nothing substantial to note.

    Have heard 3.5m initially, either way to potentially be getting 7m from a player who's hardly ever played for us is pretty good going (although I'm still slightly disappointed he didn't get a proper opportunity here).

    Bagh. I have a feeling this'll bite us in the backside. He's played really well for FC Twente, why the hell didn't we just keep him for the season? We've lost Joe Cole anyway, just push him up in his place.

    Mistake.

    Quite enjoying the lack of rumours at the moment with Chelsea's transfer activity, for a change.

    We are institutionally preventing newspapers from filling up their back pages with rumours and, as a result, sell fewer copies. Ban the Daily Mail from Chelsea I say. :holmes:

    You bought the league. I cant wait till Abramovich gets bored and leaves. You will be ******. All that money and you still cant win the Champions League and actually produce players from your academy. You have produced nobody.

    Every team buys the CL to an extent. And it's nothing new that teams don't produce from their academy and even win the thing, e.g. Inter. THe best side in this view would be Barcelona but I assume you're a bitter Man U fan?

    Ireland and Silva = Cheaper pair options

    Our midfield attack will be :coma:

    Oh and Yaya Toure's agent says he wants him to join Chelsea and Barca should lower their valuation of him.

    To be honest, it's rather picky saying that. Most players don't originally start at a certain club. But when a player is a school boy (14) when he joins, it's pretty much as 'home grown' as it gets.

    Giggs is largely accepted as a product of United's academy, not city's for eg.

    Besides, you said no body, and you have already been proved wrong. No one really needs to say much more.

    Youve pretty much accepted that your academy is ****.
