Five ways Barca could save some pennies...

 

Offer Arsenal some silverware in exchange for Fabregas - Arsenal's trophy cabinet is collecting dust and Barca could spare a couple of Copa del Rey's...

 

Buy Lionel Messi's kits in kids sizes

 

Convince Shakira to do the Xmas party entertainment for free by threatening to keep Gerard Pique in for extra training

 

Now they've finally got a shirt sponsor, why not go whole hog and be first club to sell space on their shorts and socks too?

 

Sack Guardiola - With the talent they've got, do Barca really need a manager?

 

 

:giggle:

even after winning so much they are still buried in debt thumbdown.gif

Apparently we're after Hulk, also. I really like Hulk, think he'd be a quality signing. But none of the players we're seriously looking on the verge of signing are those that are really needed. We need a DMF and CB, priority. Instead we are on the verge of signing 3 wingers. Gervinho, Mata, Chamberlain and a AMF Alvarez.

So it appears that all these three signing are going to be announced on 1st July. (According to Mirror)

 

I agree with the fact that we need a CB. And I sincerely wish there is some truth in the rumors surrounding Arsenal's interest in Samba And Gary Cahill. Finally, Wenger seems to have understood the importance of signing players who are experienced in the premier league. DMF, I think Song is doing a outstanding job and we should just let him settle.

 

The three winger also looks interesting to me because all three of them are different from each other in their own ways. Versatile Gervinho, who has potential to play up front if required. He also has an eye for scoring goals. Alvarez, his physical presence will be a huge boost of Arsenal's midfield. Chamberlin, I feel is a signing for the future.

I am with you on that one. He works hard and isn't overly selfish on the ball. Plus his size works in his favor because he can muscle through people to get the ball when required. The only downside to his play is that he gets discouraged quickly and has this nasty habit of running wide when he has options in the middle thus leaving attack moves void through the center. However, if you can give him someone on the wing to operate with then the inside cutting becomes a joy to watch because even with his size the boy has some very quick feet.

Apparently we have him evaluated at 6m and we aren't budging which is okay by me because our mid-field is starting to get overloaded.

We dont need anymore signings for the future. Im sick of being fed the same horse-crap about the future. We already have Ryo Miyachi for the future, as a winger. Ill be more than happy if he can return right now or whenever he returns. Hes shown he'll be straight into the first team squad.

 

Song is doing a good job, not a great one. I thought he was brilliant till myself and other teams noticed how weak his movement is and how slow he becomes versus sides that can get a good passing tempo going.

You are right about Song. But I think its just matter of time before he lifts his game up and performs better than his own current standards. BTW, What do you think about Cesc? Will he be leaving for sure?

 

You earlier mentioned, you're a part of certain Football Forums. What would that be? I'm looking to join good ones.

It basically means that he is not for sale !

 

Correction it means they don't want him going to teams they don't want him going to. Jack the price up and let some bigger fish try and take him. He's aging and probably won't be of much use to their style of play soon.

A buy-out clause by definition is the minimum amount that must be paid to break a player’s contract. And its an agreement signed with the player, so it basically means that is the amount a player has to pay to buy out of his contract. But in most cases, since the club is interested in acquiring the services of the player, they end up paying it. I don't think it means anything else.

It does not mean anything like that. Even if a club matches that fee, they can still reject the bid if they don't want to sell him. That is how it works, its got nothing to do with big or small fishes.
