    I doubt it's legit bearing in mind the photo looks like it's been taken on the floor of someone's house.
    Stolen prototype? :holmes:

    We're looking at the much cheaper Zaha though. Apparently we'll have to pay £15 million plus add-ons and then allow him to stay at Palace until the end of the season if we want to get him.
    15mil is such a huge gamble though...

    for an untested young player.. - who could reach any level of hieghts, world class.. or average..

    Better off paying the money for Bale than getting Zaha. He just looks like another standard young, fast, English winger. They are easily found and never seem to do anything last the age of ~22. It's why I'm still wary of Sterling and the amount of hype he gets.

    Is he a technical player (like the ox) or is he just a speedy guy who can dribble?

    I agree...

    If united can afford it.. - madrid aparently are going to offer 55m...

    if united could plump the same £55m... Im pretty sure that would be bales perefernce, rather than leave the UK

    they would get a guarenteed in form player.. - proven in the premiership, only 23 - with probably another 7 years, of getting better.. more mature.. more skillfull etc.. - or even if he just stays the same, thats pretty good..

    he doesnt have alot of injury worries.. seems to just live with so much confidence.. etc..

    To me, he seems like a wise investment.. - alot of money, averaged out, considering how much time youl have with him... - it seems like a better investment.. then 15m for someone who you have no idea whether they will be any good when they arrive, let alone in 2-5 years...


    + just thinking of an atacking line up with midfield/attacking line up of: RVP, Bale, Rooney, Kagawa, Valencia (if he gets back to form)

    it would buy them the league for another 2-3 years...

    Reminds me more of the second. He might be one a really good player but he just seems like a generically overrated winger to me :dontknow:

    As a former Barça fan I am predicting a 3-0 loss for Real Madrid next month. They are in **** form, hit them hard. Thanks.

    I agree with the sentiment on Zaha. I feel he is a bit overhyped, I guess its up to the scouts to separate hype from potential. I think Bale is a bit out of our reach, not just financially. I honestly think he thinks he's bigger than United. I think he's waiting for that Madrid or Barca move. Barca is seemingly off the cards, with Jordi Alba's arrival, I imagine that''s where he would play. I would think he's looking at a move to Madrid for huge money. For the £50m he will cost, I think we could spend that more wisely, their are few players £50m won't shift.

    He's pointing to the No. 19 after the final whistle at Anfield. Do you not know the significance of that number?
    They'll be pointing to van persie at the end of this season.

    Nope. Google hasn't helped me either.

    EDIT: Oh right, it just clicked. 19 titles.

    Tbh when I saw him vs united he didn't look so impressive, I guess he's ripping up the championship. But tbh I think he's not going to be a big player. I want to see him in another england friendly though before making a judgement. I could see from chamberlain from the football league show that he could go right up there(17 year old english versatile forwards with technique on both feet are hard to find) but I haven't watched it much this season(don't have a football league team to support since west ham and southampton are in the prem now) so can't talk about it now.

    Rafael (apart from Sturridge goal) did great. Vidic + Rio dealt with everything they had to deal with, only real Liverpool chances were fullbacks 'fault' imo. Evra also did very well, two assists!, and did very well defensively too imo.

    Carrick had a fantastic game, my motm.

    Welbeck was really really good, until he had any chance to score or get an assist. Put so much pressure on Liverpool, won the ball so many times, really kept them at bay, but is just wasteful in front of goal.

    Kagawa shifted to the left, lots of great touches and did nothing wrong, a good stable performance rather than one that had much impact. but you can see he isn't settled in that position.

    Should have had a pen but no other controversy and a Liverpool win, i'll take that!.

    Hope Arsenal can get some points now.

    It rarely ever does. We get a ridiculous number of desicions against us but we're good enough to make sure they don't count.

    Sweet win tbh. Just annoyed we didn't score a few more goals.

    Honestly hope we sell Welbeck, he's a striker who can't do his job.
