  1. Hoolahan I reckon, both him and Keane to be tied up when they return on Thursday/Friday.
  2. An interesting line from an interview artical with Josh Harris last month. http://m.espn.go.com/nba/story?storyId=10807120&src=desktop Forbes also valued the 49-year-old Harris' net worth at $2.7 billion. Harris and a partnership group bought the NHL's New Jersey Devils in August, and he refused to rule out the possibility of buying another sports franchise.
  3. His worth wouldn't go down after buying Villa though, would it? He'd now have a new asset that would be part of his calculated net worth. The figures on Forbes don't equate to the amount of cash in a billionaire's bank.Yes i know that, maybe he's transferred funds but has not officially had the club handed over yet? Bank of America holding the money for example? Who knows it's just odd for it to drop 400$m since march 2014 without forbes recording a loss? When wealth goes down it always has a red arrow with the amount, but it doesn'tHope you're right buddy You've done some great research and are basing your speculation on facts. Keep it up. Cheers mate, he lives in NY too so very feasible he could be a rich associate of Randys and would also make sense as to why Lambert went to NY rather than Lerner coming her etcJosh Harris is also the co founder of New York based private equity firm Apollo Global Management, LLC. Along with 4 or 5 other guys whose personal fortunes range from $2.5Bn - $6Bn they are also, I think, all Jewish as is Lerner, could be a factor maybe?! That could be a pretty tasty consortium right there... Oh yeah and AGM is listed on the NYSE... dun dun duuuuun
  4. Was there any sniff of Sylla and Dawkinsbeing linked to us before lunchtime and teatime respectively,last January window? Could be some hope of another couple of leftfield signings...
  5. I hope you're right Crackpot! But please don't call me Shirley!!
  6. Douglas (FC Twente) Mariga (Inter) Sissoko (Toulouse) Gouffran (Bordeaux) All out of contract at the end of the season, all should be available in January for a fairly low fee allowing the offer of decent wages. Get it done Randy! ..............................Guzan................................. Lowton...........Vlaar.......Douglas..........Bennett .............................Mariga................................. .........Westwood.................Sissoko................. ..Weimann........................................Gouffran.. ............................Benteke................................
  7. Lucas Biglia from Anderlecht, very combative Argentinean DM would be a great addition. Marin would be a great loan IMO, thought for a while that we need someone who can run at defenses and take on the opposition. N'Zogbia seems to have had that quality sucked out of him by McLeish and can't get his mojo back. Wissam Ben Yedder, who we were linked to, scored 2 goals for Toulouse to beat Lyon this afternoon, takes his tally to 9 in the league and Wilfred Bony scored his 15th league goal for Vitesse, 20th in all.comps so far this season! Both players who would be welcome additions, but are likely to be too difficult to lure away in January now!

  9. Very nice turn there just inside the box only denied a shooting opportunity by a great tackle!
  10. Well he certainly isn't going to get bullied by any defenders this season, he's like a wall.
  11. Mat was responding, a little tongue in cheek, to another tweeter asking him to: "...please tell me we're still negotiating and things are progressing?" So Mr Kendrick duly obliged. That's not to say things aren't progressing...
  12. Don't want Downing back and don't think he'd fit into PL's system. I think we'll see something like: ----------Bent---------Benteke------------ -----------------Ireland--------------------- -----Delph----El Ahmadi---Holman------- Bennett----Baker-----Vlaar--------Lowton -------------------Given--------------------- Subs: Guzan, Clark, Lichaj, Herd, Curruthers, Gabby, Weimann
  13. We could get Bennett in at left back too. There's talk of that being highly probable on Twitter
  14. Found this video on youtube whilst digging a little deeper on Benteke. I looked for the highlights of this game as I saw in his history that he scored 2 and assisted with 1 in the 3-0 win. The video is 9 mins long if you have time to watch it all. Genk v Club Brugge 26.2.12 Personally I think it shows he's a very raw talent, not sure he'd hit the ground running in the Prem and may have the crowd on his back before he's given a chance, but in Lambert we trust. Oh and he doesn't look like a Lukaku sort of 6'3" big striker. Lukaku is very skilful and explosively fast. Benteke looks good in the air though!
