The world of Premiership transfer rumours is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Speculation is rife in the likes of the Mirror, Daily Mail, Times, Sun andâ€¦ errâ€¦ Tribal Football all do their best to predict and/or completely make up the future.
Hereâ€™s our opinion on the Premiership transfer gossip weâ€™ve read in the papers and around the netâ€¦ and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.
CaughtOffside Says:There’s an exact kind of striker that Ferguson loves. Drops deep, good passer, keeps play moving. Sheringham did it, Rooney does it, Larsson did it, and Gudjohnsen is in the same vein. He’s not particularly highly rated by the Nou Camp faithful as far as we can tell (one Spanish bloke who wouldn’t stop talking to us during El Classico), so this one is quite realistic.
CaughtOffside Says:Wahay! Won’t stop the speculation though. But more Ronaldo in the Premiership is a good thing.
CaughtOffside Says:If there’s one thing Andres D’Alessandro and Carlos Tevez did, it was show Premiership watchers that little Argentinians could do a great job in the league. Saviola is a similarly nippy little fella and, while a long way from the Next Maradona hype, when on form he’d slot into almost any of the Premiership sides nicely.
CaughtOffside Says: If anyone knows if he’s any good, please let us know. And probably Stuart Pearce too.
CaughtOffside Says:The “Next Cristiano Ronaldo” they/we call him. Fast, tricky, they seem to produce these guys like eggs at Sporting (Ronaldo, Quaresma, Nani in just the past few years). Tottenham STILL lack a true winger, and Nani is comfortable on either side.
CaughtOffside Says:Even if Titus Bramble has improved, that only brings him to “appalling”. And as the saying go, “Form is temporary, being utter toss is permanent”.
