New RM striker

Postby Mexikaner » Mon, 01 Sep 2014 10:16 am

This news definitely made my week :D

http://www1.skysports.com/transfer/news ... adrid-loan

from being 4th on the list at ManU after RVP, Rooney and Welbeck, to just 2nd after K.Benzema.

Wish him all the best! Go Chicharo!

I guess he is thinking, better on the bench in Madrid than in Manchester.

He will be 3rd or 4th choice as I suspect that Ronaldo will be played centrally before "The Pea"

Sanogo isnt looking like the new Anelka at the minute is he?

Arsenal looked utterly devoid of ideas yesterday , not unlike Spurs against Liverpool earlier in the day. They need to get some pace from somewhere to stretch the opponents a bit more.

damm sure he is! but then again all the strikers Arsenal has started off like that didn't they? I think he needs a loan deal to be honest, why he didn't give Joey Campbell a start is beyond me and Poldi didn't touch the ball more than three times in the twenty minutes he came on.

Always good to see Spurs take a thumping at home. :)

As for Man U, they seem to be overpaying out of desperation lately. Signing Blind is probably going to be their best investment, whereas Di Maria - albeit a good player - seems like paying way too much to fill a position that shouldn't be top of their list of needs.

Luke Shaw also seems to be a bit of a risk for someone so young and more keen on eating than running...

I think Welbeck could be a good signing for Arsenal.

Maybe a run of games is what he needs to get his goalscoring boots warmed up.

Feel sorry for Juan Mata ... looks like he is on for some bench warming again.

Falcao will drain Man U's finances even further. He said he wouldn't budge unless he was getting paid the exact amount he currently makes at Monaco (where it's tax-free) which AFTER UK tax would be just under 18M GBP. Plus 6M more to Monaco for renting him out. :)

I really hope they don't make the Champions League next year as that will finally put an end to that ownership saga. Chelsea and Man City are virtually guaranteed to get the top two spots, so all we need now is for Liverpool and Arsenal to do their bit. :)

Unless Man Utd defenders can come to grips with the 3 at the back then they will be lucky to finish top 6.

The midfield is slow and lightweight also.....

The forwards can only score goals if they have any chances created for them.
