so i was the only one who was too focused on when the fat lady would start singing, and if juventus were in the picture, rather than the plain simple barcelona and villa link?
Even if Villa only has 2 more seasons at the top of his game, it is well worth it in my opinion. Not only is he class and will provide vital goals, but his experience and pedigree will be invaluable to younger players we are developing (and lets face it we have a lot of promising youngsters in the u21s for the first time in a long time). Also will give us time to find a younger long term investment or someone to be Villa's understudy short term while they settle in and develo;,
my young Skywalker, rather than A&C sticking to his daily thread poems, jokes, dildo, dwarfs, tax collection pleas intro, he had a go at cryptography .So why do we need to use a cryptic for Villa when everyone knows we've been linked......
and I realize theres a need to try to keep a lid on things like this but theres no need for cryptic info related to him.
If we get Villa and Paulinho, that will be a good bit of business.For some reason, maybe I am just being overly pessimistic, but I get a odd feeling Villa and Paulinho will be the only two plays we bring in this summer. If we do bring in anyone else I also feel it will most likely be a young defensive player for the future. The other player I feel we need as much as a forward, a new left wing playmaker like Lamela/Bernard, is probably not on Levys list. Why I feel like this I don't know, just a hunch.
Investment in terms of an asset with resale valueWhen people talk about signing a 32 year old as not being an investment, i guess they mean financially, and not taking into account their services where that particular individual might be the catalyst to glory.
totally agree, also if we're still looking at our targets in sense of resale value etc theres something wrong imo, i know why levy does it but we aint a small team trying to sign players to sell on for profit still surely? there's gotta be a time where we're gonna have to take a risk and go for itInvestment in terms of an asset with resale value
We've seen several times the benefit of older quality players - they add quality in the here and now and they help develop the younger players around them
Klinsmann, Naybet, Davids to name 3 perfect examples
Villa would be an outstanding signing- no doubt about that, but yea as a direct investment in the sense of a player who will come in and improve personally to be able to be sold at a profit he is not. That by no means suggests he wouldn't be a great signing, of course he would (who knows, his presence could result in a younger striker developing into a world beater from learning off Villa which would offset the loss in outlay from signing an elder statesman of the game)
I think its important to have a mix of signings for the here and now designed purely to complete our current first team and bring success and others who have potential and hopefully will rise in value to make the club money if they are soldtotally agree, also if we're still looking at our targets in sense of resale value etc theres something wrong imo, i know why levy does it but we aint a small team trying to sign players to sell on for profit still surely? there's gotta be a time where we're gonna have to take a risk and go for it
