    Do we really want a Julio Geordio (see Fast Show) type player with no experience of the UK, our culture, our leagues, or even experience outside his native Colombia? Probably only speaks Spanish. These issues can bring all sorts of problems.

    I'm not being racist just staying facts. He could be an absolute gem at a low cost but imo a big risk.

    Our friends down west have tried a couple of these I believe, at least one for a large amount of money. I don't think they were very successful.

    I see City are quiet on this. I hope they stay that way.

    Yes, I suppose so - we could always find another Lambert, Madine or Niasse.

    Not a fair comparison Sparks. You could have cited the ones who worked, Aguerro, Suarez, Tevez etc but they had good track records before coming to the UK.

    Anyway as the article says, it's all gone quiet over there since we got relegated.

    And Tomlin and Bogle. Plus some others we could do without.

    Connolly, Damour (although he was just about okay as cover last time in the Championship) and Healey who is lower level Championship at best. Would be better off playing in League 1.

    .....as is Tomlin and Bogle. Something of an indictment of the decison making up front when you lump them alongside Madine and Niasse.

    I'll let you off Sparks.

    I see Villa are after Jack Butland from Stoke. Hope they get him and leave Etheridge alone. The spammers have signed 2 keepers so that's them sorted Liverpool have distanced themselves from him so that only leaves Fulham from last week's list. Why the hell would he want to go there anyway? Wasnt he there a few years ago and they let him go?

    I also see Noonie is off to play in Australia. Good luck to him.

    Ethridge has said he wants another crack at the prem.
    If we get a good price and he gets his wish, good luck to him.
    Would be bitterly disappointed if he left other than for a prem club.
    Fulham have finished behind us for the last two seasons. Backward step.:emoticon-0105-wink:
    More likely to be back in the prem with us in a season than with them.

    Following my conversation with Sparks yesterday about signing some Colombian magic, I must first apologise. Julio Geordio was featured on Harry Enfield and Chums not the Fast Show. To make up for my error, here are a couple of clips from the show to show what we could be missing <yikes> <whistle>



    Unfortunately the next one loses picture about half way through but you get the drift.

    Watching the Fast Show (and also Fantasy Football) takes me back to the time when I could afford 10 pints on a Friday night, some bottles of lager in a night club and a curry still have change for a cab and watch these programmes when I got back (and fall asleep half way through) that is if I’d remembered to record them!

    Looks like Jonathan Woodgate getting manager's job at Middlesbrough - he'll probably get injured doing that....<laugh>

    They're just keeping us on edge William. I'm sure they will all arrive in a rush next week. <whistle>

    Contracts run to the end of June.
    Why start paying new players any earlier.:emoticon-0126-nerd:

    Holy ****! No! Breathe William, breathe!!! We've lost you for a time this year already...…..and we re not many to lose even one of us.
    Speaking of which…...where's Aber these days? Has Masky finally driven him off or is he taking a well-earned between-seasons break?
