The best part of picking up a CB is that it means Savic would hopefully never have to play in a meaningful game...ever.
Popadopolous would be nice for City

Fullback cover would be nice as well (I wish we could keep Simmo).
Well Jonas played there last year, Vuckic if he's not injured, Bigirmana has looked good, Gosling hopefully plays better than last year and then Perchinho can play there as well. Or we could put Marveaux in the middle and then go with Sammy or Gutierrez on the wing.

Just think our team is a lot more fluid when we play with 3 in the middle.

I agree on the fluidity point. I would play Ba over Marveaux though. Far more goals in that team imo.

Point taken. But apparently Schalke've already rebuked offers up to 25 mil for him this summer, and if Man City really is crazy enough to drop near Thiago Silva money on him, well then one has to wonder about how worthwhile a buy it is, especially for a young CB who still needs a lot of polish. IMO it'd be another Boateng situation except they'll have paid twice as much leaving them with no hope to sell him on for even close to what they paid for him.

Watching the Olympics Joe Allen doesn't stop reminding me why I was so impressed with him. If Liverpool or Tottenham do manage to sign him that'll be a big boost to their midfields, for Liverpool he could be the player Jordan Henderson was supposed to be, and if Tottenham lose Modric, replacing him with the Sygi-Allen pair would be a solid replacement with cash to spare.

you can't trust ANY transfer related article until you see the man with the kit at a presser.

He is wrong. Absolutely. Dempsey is good though....an argument could be made for top 100 for sure....soccer is such a subjective sport, it's tough to argue anything really.

My soccer knowledge is average at very best, but I rattled off a good 10-20 names we agreed on without really thinking. He just kept coming back to "He scored lots of goals in the premiere league" which was annoying

I love Clint as much as the next one but I prob would have smacked your brother in the back of the head. If you can't break into some of the top clubs in the world chances are you aren't top 50.

Well, he could start for Spurs next year for sure.

Anyway, this Debuchy business is getting annoying, ******* Lille still bitter over losing Cabaye to us for 5 million....

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/newca...medium=twitter

It's annoying being good at transfers. Both Lille and Twente don't want to deal with us because we destroyed them on the Cabaye and Tiote deals.

That's so ******* childish. Newcastle makes good transfers and picks up players off their squad who work well in their system, making previous team look foolish, so now said team won't play nice? **** them.

what value do you guys place on debuchy? i see him being a magpie for upwards of 8 mill euros. idk if newcastle would pay that much though. quality fullbacks are at a premium. 5 mil would've been an absolute steal.

To be fair, bumping up an offer from 5 to 6 mil for a Fullback who was starting and excelling on a team that made it to the knockout rounds of the EC, is kinda absurd. The man's easily worth more than the 8-10 mil Lille are holding out for, especially with how thin the fullback position is world wide, and how crucial it has become with the rise of in-cutting wingers. I get the desire to sign guys for bargain prices, but you can't really get to upset with a team demanding what a player's worth. This isn't Porto demanding 30+ for any starter.

City actually sold somebody! So ends the legacy of Vlad Weiss.

The possibility of Sahin to Arsenal is intriguing. Would surely like to see him get more opportunity than he got at Real. He could emerge a bit more at Arsenal.

But on the other hand, he's worth what someone is willing to pay for him. And I haven't heard of much interest outside of Newcastle.

Have you heard of any interest in Modric from anyone other than Real? Does that mean Modric is only worth the 20 or whatever mil Madrid's offer was? Debuchy wants to go to Newcastle and that's going to get teams to pursue other options, like Leverkusen's signing of Carvajal. That doesn't lower his value to Lille as a player, even though it has suppressed the market in which to sell him.

Not in the past week, but yes there has been plenty of interest in Modric. Chelsea and Barcelona I know. But a player that expensive will always have less suitors.

Modric to Barcelona? Not going to happen at all. We have no need of him.

Chelsea was only interested when AVB was there. I haven't heard any link with him this year.

I get the desire to sign guys for bargain prices, but you can't really get to upset with a team demanding what a player's worth. This isn't Porto demanding 30+ for any starter.
I actually agree 100%. It still sucks though because we cant get our epic bargains anymore :(. That said, if 1 million GBP is what costs us Debuchy, I will be extremely pissed.
