    We'll never know for sure how good he could have been, but I think if it wasn't for his knees he'd have been an England regular for years and would have been at a far bigger club than Spurs. Even when he couldn't train he was still playing at a high level, and playing well aside from his last season or two when he was a complete liability. For the definition of overrated look no further than Chelsea's racist centre half.

    to be fair I was being a bit facetious and making a joke at the posters expense

    I don't know I rate him as highly as you do but I think he was a good defender when fit aye.

    Feels kinda like how you guys lost Pogba. Can fully understand why Thiago wants to move, not exactly a nice midfield to try break into. :laugh:

    At least you have the knowledge you will get £15m not 300k, he's going because he plays a position that is overloaded and most likely he will be back playing for Barca in a few years, unlike Pogba playing a position we needed filling and is never coming back.

      Haha thats true. I feel for him. No resentment too him what so ever when he leaves. Wish him the best with you lot. Although still not gonna see him making the World Cup squad or at least starting bar injuries to quite a few players haha

      Its a buyout clause, its not like a transfer where we have to get it done early. Key dates are going to be the 1st where Moyes is appointed, 13th first game of pre season and the the dates of the actual transfer window.

        Yeah, as I posted yesterday - we're very unlikely to see official news on a 'big' transfer until the 1st. The media crew at United are going to be keen to ensure that big, positive happenings at the club now seemingly occur once Moyes is officially in charge.

        Moyes first day on July 1st. I'd expect a press conference that week by then hopefully the transfer that everyone is talking about non-stop gets done and as said above, for some positive stories be in place for his conference with the media.

        Rooney was scheduled to have talks with Moyes this week so again, Moyes' press conference will probably be overshadowed by transfers, squad make up than his actual appointment.

        I'm intrigued by Moyes as his approach to the media as boss. At Everton, he was fairly personable whilst maintaining a distance but SAF was very strict with the one news conference with the TV/Radio/Newspapers (think he did do a Sunday briefing for some) rather than seperate briefings but I hope Moyes does things differently whilst responding to unfair criticism sternly.
