Borja Valero would be a good signing imo



Seedorf would be mustard for a season or 2. Dont like the sound of him with Noblan though.

Valero got home sick at WBA. Will go to Atleti or Malaga probably.

It's unlikely but if Seedorf signed, ecstatic would be an understatement

Dont shoot the messenger but a Millw@nk supporter told me today that we're in talks to sign Crouch!

Some nonsense about his mate being a cab driver and taking Mrs Crouch somewhere in London and her talking about how they missed London and were in discussions with us

Sounds crap I know but remember someone else mentioning something similara few days ago

Is he better than Kieran Richardson, Scott Sinclair or Matt Phillips?

Not from what I've seen.

Moses went for abou £2m to wigan, and is now looking the nuts. How has he been hyped exactly?

The link to Seedorf is the most tenuous thing I've ever heard.

UOG, im talking about when they first break through. The press were acting like him and Bostock were goimg to be world beaters.

Instead one has sat on the Spurs bench for about 4 years and the other went to WIGAN for TWO MILLION.

Also, Moses looks massively inconsistent so at Wigan so...

His decision making and let him down more often than not every time I have watched him Bob, except at the Emirates.

But anyway, my poimt is him Zaha, Bostock etc have all had this speculatiom Zaha is having at some point early on. Silly fees big clubs etc.

Seedorf would be an amazing signing. People need to stop thinking where he would figure in our team sheet, that is Big Sam's problem. He wouldn't play every game, but his influence would be inspirational, especially to our younger players. This is a guy who has won practically everything there is to win in the game and he still is, quality

Yea Why Not wrote:So would I although I do think a pacey/tricky player one side with a Collison/Barton type player the other side does give good balance. And seeing as Sam didn't play with 2 attacking wide players in the Championship I very much doubt he will in the Premiership.....


I've been saying this all season and I fear many are being seduced by the sexy possibility of having two lightning players wide. In reality having a wide midfielder on one side allows he whole midfield to shift across, makes us more solid defensively and means we retain possession more than having two 'vaz te' likes on either side

It's no surprise that our best results came with a collison like player on one side and a livewire on the other - although appreciate some will want a collison upgrade given his up and down form

I for one think he'll push on from the last few games and the prem will suit him more (also don't think he was fit for the play off final really) and would prefer money spent on defence, defensive mid and hold up striker.

Not West Ham but I thought it was worth sharing (again not sure if it's on here already):

Eden Hazard update. Due to Harry Redknapp's Dyslexia Tottenham Hotspur would today like to announce the signing of Eddie Izzard

Him and Nolan with a DM who runs around like a complete twat would be the nuts.

Not that I'm willing to have an argument on such a tenuous link but you couldn't play those three in a 3 man midfield.

Well you could but only once!

Seedorf, quality player was rated as the 7th best player ever in the Champions league, now he is 36, he has lost some pace and stamina and last season was played as an impact sub most of the time.

Would I want him?, yes

Would he be expensive wage wise?, I expect so

Would I want him if it prevented us signing a younger player with great ability? No

If we were a cash rich club where the weekly wage did not matter, I would take him in a heartbeat, however we still have a mountain of debt and we have to build a team that can maintain us in the Premiership, not just battle in the relegation places, so on this basis I would have to say thanks, but no thanks.

Surely Seedorfs wage demand would be astronomical.

Don't see him as our future at all unfortunately.
