Summer football transfers

by Jon Burrage   June 3, 2009  

so it looks like Man City will try to buy the world, real will try and get kaka, ribery and ronaldo (how much would that shopping spree cost?!) and chelsea may get a few milan youngsters.

What does that leave for the rest of us?

As a spurs fan I think we should sell Darren Bent (sunderland maybe), Gilberto, Chimbonda, Alan Hutton (back to Rangers), Zokora (Portsmouth or Ajax), David Bentley (west ham or villa). We could then bring dos santos back in from Ipswich and have a more balanced, cost effective side.

What will happen with you team?

No worries I'm on it Jimmy - anyone else you're interested in apart from the Terras?

Fringe,
Yes,
Yes if you've got the money or you're lucky,
Yes - Sunday mornings on parks and recs all over this fair land grown men gather to kick lumps out of each other and sometimes the ball + abuse each other and the ref, it's addictive so I'm told.

anybody want to sign a free, ageing, injury prone, short striker...10 years past his best? £90,000 per week or nearest offer...
in fairness who would want to wear that newcastle kit, anyone else seen the new yellow number? Grim. I know its steven taylor in the pic, not owen, but you get the idea.

newcastle away kit

not all carbon is the same.

Newcastle United away kit design meeting:

Mike Ashley: "Any ideas on the away new kit then?"
Gok-wan: "Yes maybe yellow and yellower stripes....I thought a comedy kit would go well with the style of football and the way the club is run"
Mike Ashley: "Any other suggestions?"
**Silence from all other board members due to being bound and gagged**
Mike Ashley: "Right, yellow it is then....next on the agenda: 'Which unknown South American winger to buy?'"

p.s I'm a Newcastle fan.

I am unsure whether to be happy or sad that Liverpool have got Glen Johnson, but paid about 8million too much for him.

We have 3 major signings already, Lee Croft, Ben Pringle and the mighty Jake Buxton.

Good enough to take us up to the Prem? Not confident.

I can now report that Terras have enough players to put a team out.

With the amount of clubs struggling, the FA should hang their heads in shame and the topsy turvy nature of funding.

Hull City can't sign anyone- no one wants to come here, and I can't blame them; I took up cycling to get the hell out of the place!

Cheers Tony.

I cunningly avoided them by walking the GR20 in Corsica instead. I'm in Oxford already, acclimatising to the southern heat before the first match on Saturday.

*Bump*

500 mile round trip today for the Ridgeway Derby in the Conference South.

Dorchester were sent packing by a brilliant effort from the Weymouth team.

Could the Terras be on the way back?

Watch out Bath ! Big Grin
