I bet ol whiskeyface is rueing the missed opportunityHe's been spectacular. Another clean sheet (7 on the year now) and his quickness and ability to play "sweeper" have made us so much more solid at the back. He's a special, special keeper.
Can't believe we stole him for the fee we did.
and yet we'll end up with Kasper Schmiecal!
we can rule out Tim Krul too... why will he come here if he can get CL football at Newcastle next season... (possibly!)
I'd love him but he won't sign for us
More chance of signing an actual Loris.
Personally, i want my Gomes back - the one that got us into the Champions League.
Our shopping list has gone from Llorente to Holt, Hazard to Hoillet, Vertonghen to Williamson and Lloris to Green....
As above- no Champs League the you can rip up the wet dream shopping list and start thinking about who we lose and being disappointed when Holiett turns us down for Newcastle.......still get to keep Jenas and Bentley
But if we do end up in CL- surely Alder on a free is the better bet
He's going to have a serious fall out with AVB if Brad isnt dropped. Will derail our season and we will finish 12th.
Dont do it Levy
Look, I'm a fucking genius =]We're the top ranked team in England who still need a proper keeper. Brad's good but is just too old to rely on.
As for leaving France, I think the lure of the Prem and La Liga are huge. Look at Ben Arfa, he was at a Marseille and Lyon playing CL football, won 5 titles, but ended up at Newcastle. Look at Ajax players, they always move on despite being a CL and title winning team.
I''m not saying we'll get him, and 10m is a steal, but it's not out of the realms of possibility.
Most overrated player on our books by far.
Don't get me wrong he's a good keeper, a bit punchy for my liking, but still doing a fine job.
However, the way people rave about him you would think he regularly takes it round the entire opposition and scores /slots one in every time were short of a goal or two.
You're all pedants.
