Well actually not all of us, I didn't want him. Yes he scored 17goals. Jesus, did you see how many he should of had? He probably missed 2/3 sitters a game. Also it was pretty much nailed on he would play like a donkey after he had his pay off from city and a nice new one from us.
Actually, his conversion rate was slightly worse than 1 in 5, not fantastic but very acceptable. You'll be able to check this for yourself when the Telegraph stats pages are back on line. Last season Bale's conversion rate was a bit worse than 1 in 6 (as was Adebayor's). Are you going to apply the same standards?

And yes, until the last few games of last season he played like he was suffering from narcolepsy, and there's always been the well-founded suspicion that he suffers from Anelka-style Attention Deficit Disorder. We knew we were taking a risk. However, you and others are invited to name better strikers we could have got at the time.

Have Norwich signed Nathan Redmond? Thought someone mentioned it a page or so back. He is one I'm surprised we weren't in for.

Honestly don't know who brought him in but i do know he's not rated! The word "laughable" was used when describing him.
I'm pretty sure it was sherwood.

Sounds like he will be let go then I guess. Seems a nice guy so it's a shame.

Rumours in Brazillian press Inter's DOF is claiming to have turned down a bid for Damiao from Napoli, interesting to see if it has anything to do with us. I remember ITK saying he wasn't the priority; now Villa is gone and Benteke could prove too rich for our blood...

We might see ANOTHER saga with Damiao begin.

Twitter has turned the site to shit?

Looking at the error message it's definitely Twitter that's caused the site to fail.

Bale shoots from 30 yards out around 4 times a game. Takes all the free kicks etc. ADE misses sitters. Yes sitters! One on ones. Free headers. Comparing bale to ADE is just plain silly. As to who we could of got who was better! I don't know. ? It's not my job to know. But for 120k a week and 10m ish signing on?? If my job was to scout all year round I'm pretty sure I could find someone better. In fact I know I could. X

The Twitter feed is alright Rob but it's just a lazier version of the RO. I wouldn't worry about it for the sake of it seemingly giving the site a fatal error.
