Does MP have form with taking players with him from club to club?

Honestly, I haven't seen much to support that!

4 times a season, we would be incredible.

The rest of the time a shambles.
That's double the amount of this season then TTS !!!!!!

No. A number of our fans just lack imagination.

Even at his age, he would be a much better fit in our midfield than Kouyate. At least he can control a moving ball and he wouldn't lose possession quite as easily[/quote]

Puff, He was a great player but the legs have gone. He would need a couple of young ones around him to do his work if we were to accommodate. No way could he pair with Nobes or Kouyate.

Arnie, Balotelli and Andy Carroll is one of the greatest things I’ve ever pondered.

I think they all do until they get to that point where the club is so big it buys whoever it likes.

I get the impression that Real Madrid and Man City were largely of that ilk but Villareal and Malaga less so.

Is Albert Steptoe worth a punt? Had a great season despite Leicester being hit and miss! Him & Marko would scare the **** out of defences

^^^^^^^

Too old imvho - 31 - and they would want at least 25M I would imagine..... I would rather look at someone younger and as bubbles1966 always points out, we don't have a lot of problems scoring goals, it's letting them in that does for us !!!!

He took Cabellero.

Mirror: West Ham after Rondon

Also being linked with Mooy and Foden.
