Unless my beloved Arsenal start buying some replacements for all the players we're selling I can't see us doing very much at all this season! We'll be lucky to stay in the top 4!

Haha. I will get you back on it when you hear this story !

My first ever Premier League game I saw in London LIVE was Totenham vs Charlton at White Hart Line. Totenham won and I was in VIP lounge because starting eleven goalkeeper for Charlton was good friend of mine Sasa Ilic (Serbian guy).

Did that do it ?

I went to see Totenham maybe 3 or 4 times more at White Hart Line because there was one Serbian guy who was supporter of them so I went with him to Spurs games smile.gif

I don't really think we've begun our spending yet this summer. Or selling for that matter. Crouch and two young right/left backs (one of which is going back on a one year loan) is all.


You're supposed to be in for Huntelaar and possibly Vieira with Bent off to Sunderland Cael. At this point in time with out Huntelaar in and Bent out your net spend is the second or third highest - highest is City.

Spurs are also linked with an awful lot of other players so I do agree that you haven't stopped spending - just like City haven't.

SJ - I'd assume Arsenal will now be looking for transfers in with the large amount of cash City have given them this week and I think Arsene will spend it wisely smile.gif .

True, it's in generel been a very quite window. I can't remember the price tag of the two young left/right backs, but I think it was 3m a piece. Crouch was about 9m. That adds up to 15 million pounds. It's not a lot, and I think in generel it says more about the window than us.

I know we're in for a lot of other players - I actually have a list of most of the players rumored to come to us. It adds up to 70 or more. Though he has a grim past I wouldn't mind seeing Viera at Spurs.

If we sell Bent and another few our net spend will be about 0. Daniel Levy runs the economy side of the club very well. Though we've bought many players during the last few years, one has to consider the out goings as well. Robbie Keane and Berbatov brought in 50 mill.

I hope so! He's got quite a knack of buying good young players!

I think the two Kyles were at least 10m. Everton had agreed 5m just for Naughton according to SUFC but you offered at least 10m for both with one back on loan. Crouch was supposed to go to Sunderland for 12m but didn't want to go north so I think he went to you for 10m - good deal imho, well worth 10m as he'll score quite a few. Bent to Sunderland - maybe 12-15m so a good deal if you get Huntelaar for 10-12m? Keane and LFC - wink.gif. At the mo it's really only city who are throwing cash about though...

He has SJ, he has. I've a lot of time for Arsenal because you've developed and bought wisely rather than just thrown cash about. I think we (EFC) are pretty much trying the same mate. An example I think we're trying to follow though the press hate us for it. (How I hate Sky when they forget that we've been in the top 4 once and been top 5 regularly for the last 5 years. Oh wait Sky news flash - MCFC to challenge for 5th and break in to the top 4 rolleyes.gif dry.gif .)

More seriously - IF LFC do lose Alonso and Masch I think they'll struggle more than Arsenal to stay top 4. And it looks like Alonso is gone...

Spurs are just one of those teams that screams average. Getting rid of Bent would be great though. He is terrible. Huntelaar would be a quality signing, I really do rate him. I still can't see Spurs doing that well though. Why anyone would want to buy Crouch I do not know. I don't care what anyone says he is useless. Watching him week in week out last season only confirmed my thoughts, but no one else seems to see it! He has no first touch is useless with both feet and unbelievably average in the air. Just because he has a foot headstart on most balls into the box doesn't mean he will put it away. And don't even get me started on his England performances.

Bobby Robson had died today aged 76. Absolutely heatbreaking. It always pained me to see him so frail in his last few years. What a legend and fantastic bloke.

Robson on his time at Newcastle:

"A number of councillors wrote to me to say they had never seen so much emotion in a ceremony of that kind. Perhaps it was because I had talked about my father, and how he went down the pit white and came up black, in an area where the two colours symbolise a city's love of football, a love that burns within me and will never fade."

I'm so crushed. He was the most likeable person in football.

RIP Bobby Robson.

We, Partizan Belgrade fans have great memory of him. 2003 Champions League qualifier 3rd round. First game we lost in Belgrade (0-1 was result) but then away managed to come back with 1-0. We than played extra time which resulted in penalties and we went through. That is the first time some team in Serbia managed to enter Champions league from creation of new country.

I'm not alone now!!. I thought I was the only one here sick about football. I'm quite sad because Boca Juniors lost it's game yesterday aganist Manchester United. But, anyway, it's not a serious cup.
I'm very excited because the Apertura 09 will begin next week and Boca got a lot of great players. Let's see how is it
