    I'll have you know that Moutinho is mere days away from joining Everton. I should know, I read about it last summer.

    Hey, remember that time when we bought all the world's best attacking players? That worked out really well for us! Let's do it again!

    Hopefully the 80m will go on the Glazers' mortgage and not on players else we're all smurfed.

    I'm sure Ferguson will spend it on gum, no worries.

    Despite his 42 goal hall in 07/08 Ronaldo is one of soccers most overrated players. He always seems to bottle it in the big games & he's a big sissy & all round douche bag. He aint worth 80m but well done to United since they only bought him for 12.5m not a bad profit. The Premiership wont miss him!

    I have to disagree. Ronaldo over the past two years has at times single-handedly put us through games. Roma & Porto away instantly spring to mind.

    @charliepanayi: I was talking about the defender, Sergio Ramos. Yeah, I'd imagine Juande has little or no say about transfers in & out at this stage.

    Brazil v Egypt earlier was a great game, 4-3, Egypt desperately unlucky.

    Fixtures for next season on Wednesday morning.

    I watched some of that! I saw the first two Torres goals and the Fabregas goal. I also saw NZ take a shot at goal at one point! I was so proud. ;_;

    More upset about the losses in the rugby and cricket that came about on the same weekend, personally. =/ Three NZ teams representing three sports I enjoy, all losing. Gutted!

    As much as I really dislike Ronaldo and - in many respects - how he plays his game, I certainly think he's an extremely talented player and one who could go on to be one of the greats of football.

    Also lol @ Benitez trying to get Johnson for 17m. Wasn't it just the other week he was moaning about how he doesn't have a lot of money to spend by comparison to Man Utd? I wish we had 17m to spend, never mind on one player.

    ...and apparently they're going to sell off Arbeloa for 8m? If they do, it would be beyond belief. To say Johnson is worth 17-18m and Arbeloa is worth merely 8m is silly. Especially when you're, apparently, selling to Real Madrid of all clubs. They should be shelling out bucketloads more than that. And as for Real Madrid going for Sagna: Ha! Sorry, but I just don't rate Sagna as one of the best fullbacks in the world - but maybe that's just me.

    It really smurfing is, isn't it. It's the whole "being English" thing I suppose.

    Are we going to set up a new thread at some point for the new season? Or just re-name this one?

    Yeah, we should probably set up a new one now-ish. Don't we usually start them in the close season? It's been a good one, guys, in spite of the lack of random image posting that we had at the end of the last one.
