Reply robin crimes on 6 January 2014 at 6:09 pm I was in the car yesterday with a few mates and had the radio on listening to the Utd game. It was a great moment and after Ferdinand had gone off and Fabio sent off there was a real sense that everything’s going wrong for them. I’m sure everyone saw the article about their share price dropping wiping nearly £200m of the value. We, on the other hand seem to be genuinely on the up. It was almost an unthinkable scenario 2 years ago. I just wanted to agree with all the points raised on the podcast. Yesterday, was quite interesting. It was all about looking at players (and obviously seeing off Oldham). I don’t mind admitting I was writing Sterling off a month or so before xmas so hopefully we’ll all be wrong about other players. If Sterling improves that final ball / shot then we’ve got another very good squad player. I’d still like us to buy there though. His strength has really impressed me lately. In saying the above, I’m still gonna write Kelly, Assaidi and Borini off. I just don’t think they’ll ever be good enough for where we wanna be. I was glad someone on the podcast likened Alberto to Alonso because I made the same point to mates yesterday but then had to backtrack because it’s a ridiculous comparison. I really think he’s got a future. I wanna see more of him though. Get him more accustomed to the speed of the prem and the lack of time you get. If games are won then he should be on without fail. That’s how Fergie did it. Rodgers doesn’t seem to do it so much. Moses is a joke hence our rivals giving him us. I’ve nothing more to say on him. I feel for Aspas. I’m worried for him too. Yesterday though, he was closing players down continuously and as the crowd applauded his efforts it seemed to make him more keen to impress. He’s using the old chestnut about being played out of position but he’s got a lot to prove. Again, I wouldn’t bet on him becoming a real asset to us, though he is one I’d really like to see make it. I feel we’d have been more positive about him had he played Suarez in yesterday and picked up and assist instead of trying to beat 2 men and looking stupid. The point on the podcast that I agree with most though (as do we all, judging by what I’ve read recently) is this need to spend our budget on a couple of guaranteed starters. I’m all in favour of FSG’s vision – have been from day 1. I think it’s a mutually beneficial relationship and that’s as good as you can hope for. The time has come though, whether it be January or the summer to have a couple of windows of only buying quality. Probably for the first time we’re now ready to take the next step.

I never touch newspapers or their sites. Reply robin crimes on 7 January 2014 at 9:50 pm Oh right. I haven’t bought any for decades and don’t have Sky, As far as I’m aware i contribute nothing to News Corp / Murdoch and never knowingly will. On the other hand, if I can get something for free then I’m happy to. Even took a free year off Sky. Melbourne on 6 January 2014 at 6:39 pm Well done again, lads. I agree very much with what was said particularly with regard to spending in this transfer window. I think it’s to the team’s benefit to make two strong signings that can arrive ready to slide right into the first eleven. There’s much to digest after a feast of matches but I think there’s a great deal for which we can be hopeful. Up and up. Reply paul on 6 January 2014 at 9:43 pm No idea how many listeners you guys have, but why aren’t you pushing the Bettison knighthood petition each week? http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/47770 Secondly, Moses, what a waste of space (and money). Reply BrianB on 7 January 2014 at 12:07 am Good points! But what about a concerted effort to turn the spotlight on Bettison? Here’s a man who has abused his position of trust time and again.You don’t have to go any further than googling him to see what a totally despicable character he is. I know about his involvement in Hillsborough.But it’s obvious that he’s a serial offender in many other ways. How can we accept this stuff? Just look at his record.This could be the last bastion of the ruling class establishment. Just take a moment or two to check it out.Just google him.Norman Bettison.Remember the name and wonder…….how many more like him? Reply paul on 7 January 2014 at 7:46 pm I find that Jay chap unnecessarily antagonistic, but this is probably right up his alley. Time for a “Bettison Special” led by McKenna?
