Whats the point i dont think it would get much interest maybe a page or two
While I would like him at the club, I feel to get dragged into this rant and rave again is ridiculous.
I much prefer the rumours of Balotelli... as he is much better on FM than Gudjohnson
Does anyone think it's worth starting a thread about him? [/quote]
I think Countryboy was having a little bit of fun with UTJ
Seems like the papers are a bit hard up for a story today.
Thanks as always C.H.
jesus, £70 grand a week and he's robbing rings of dead people
I have a feeling we're one of these clubs who's bid for Fortune. If this Gudjohnsen story is true - with Zola and Clarke there - surely he'll come now!?
what's that you say about the carrick deal?
