I think it's 20 million well spent, certainly better than the 30 million for Rooney and 32 million for Tevez.
Both of whom have 10+ years left in their careers.

I wouldn't go too hard on him the first season, though. Those sorts of partnerships take time to form.

Just like Gerrard and Torres? Took awhile that!

Yeah, well Gerrard is a midfielder and can play with most anybody (as much as I hate to admit it)!

Well frank is a different kettle of fish alltogether. I don't support England, so the more adversity they face, the happier I become (no offence meant to anybody, by any means. Its just a thing I have)

So, who do you hate/dislike more; Chelsea, Man U or Arsenal?

Man Utd of course, can't stand them! Got it from being an adopted Scouser

And that is why we will get along so well!

Oh yes we'll be best of pals...

I actually have loads of friends who are Liverpool supporters, the 'banter' can get heated at times, but we're all grown men and can keep it civil... ... most of the time

Literally none of my friends or even anyone that I know follow the Premiership, so it does get a bit frustrating at times not being able to talk to anyone. But thats what you get for living in the States..

Huh, that does seem pretty crappy. Do you follow MLS at all? I know football (soccer) isn't that big in the US. But I've heard that the league itself is actually pretty useless too...

Nope, don't follow MLS one bit. I live about 45 minutes away from D.C United (closest MLS team), but they do not interest me at all. The league standard is rubbish and I won't ever take it seriously.

No argument necessary! Man U all the way.

Of course, he'll say Liverpool. But I have evidence:
[stats are; Played, Won, Draw, Loss, GF, GA, Goal Differential, and Points]
1Manchester United (C) 38 27 6 5 80 22 +58 87
2 Chelsea 38 25 10 3 65 26 +39 85
3 Arsenal 38 24 11 3 74 31 +43 83
4 Liverpool 38 21 13 4 67 28 +39 76

Further evidence: Current champions of Europe= Manchester United

Oh, and the season hasn't started yet. It may get pretty hot in here mid season...

Good signing for them. Simpson is a decent player and now they can move Emerton to the right wing in place of Bentley.

Re: General Football Discussion v6

I heard (Daily Mirror, so not the most reliable source) its a loan that will be finalised as a full transfer next season...I'll be sorry to see Simpson go if its true. he was a player I liked. Its a good move for him and for Blackburn; the game time he'll (hopefully) get there will really help him develop him potential.

Good luck, Danny!
