Has their been any ITK on Chiriches other than newspapers?
This player looks awesome - may turn out to be our best summer signing. Powerful, fast, can turn defence into attack, scores goals, can tackle, dribble and pass!

Edit: just read the home page story - his agent and national coach say his coming to us
Some ITK last week did say that we are looking to buy a CB.

Regarding Chiriches, not only looks technically good, but also he is ready to put his body on the line while defending, like Dawson. He seems to have all qualities of a proper CB - hopefully he can adapt quickly.

Agree. I only know what I've seen on the YouTube clips posted on here, but he does look a tidy player, and as someone mentioned (don't remember who, I have the memory of a goldfish!), he could well be cover for Younes who seems to have a major problem with his knee.

agreed on the Dawson bit, I will take your word on the Romanian dude.

It's amazing how much you'll miss on here while sleeping. Soldado expected today, Vlad soon and Suarez? (What. The. Fudge?)

Though reading through it seemed Suarez rumour is regarded as a joke (thankfully).

As much as I hate Suarez now.. I'm sure I could look past it if he scored us 30 goals a season. If he joined and bale left, we might just be okay.

If Saurez was to behave himself while here and score goals, I'd take him if only to piss off the scouse and goons.

Monster of a thread.

Good news about Soldado from POTL, was beginning to worry a little.

Chiriches looks like a a very interesting little buy !

I'm fucking impressed as to how well Franco has come in and done business for us from the beginning, getting in our important players and then focusing on the youth/squad signings for the rest of the window.

Chadli, Paulinho, Soldado and Chiriches are 4 quality signings that have been completed/will be for under 60 million combined and too me we have done the best business out of all the EPL clubs so far this window. Every player is versatile and can play multiple positions which also gives AvB plenty options during the season.

Couple that with the fact that our squad wasn't bad to begin with we should seriously mount a challenge for top 3 and at least bring home one piece of silverware. Getting rid of the deadwood and a few other outgoings, and If Bale resigns I am content and ecstatic with this window and anything further would just be a bonus too me.

If we sell Bale we wont be top 4 let alone top 3, no chance im afraid. With him I think we can challenge for the title, he is THAT important to us.

Funny because Baldini wasn't the main player in the deal?

Being a bit of a cynical so and so at times, the whole 'great work, Franco' shtick does start to grate a bit. I mean, it's not that hard to wrap up transfers when you've broken the club record twice!

PS - I'm well aware that we've at least bought a bloody good striker which is more than we've achieved for a few seasons

Hopefully he is right about a certain Mr Bale staying :)
