    Agree with the statement but it does therein show how we are directionless about this transfer window, as we have over the past couple of years... all the signs of a management structure that has no strategic planning

    I’m not going to shoot you down. I just wonder why you can’t stand two of the best players ever to have laced on a pair of boots?

    Rickie Lambert will never make it in the Premier League (but he might get picked for England)

    Fat Sam saying that if Ings passes a medical it means his knee is probably OK. Where as Austin is permanently ****ed and plays on anti inflammatories and does limited training

    Being talented doesn't necessarily make you a likeable person...I just want to slap Ronaldo whenever I see him. Not that he would care about that. :)

    As strange as it sounds.... I just don’t rate Messi that highly. It’s an old adage, but can he do it on a cold Tuesday night in Bolton. Although I appreciate his achievements, I just think they are need to be taken in the context of where he’s playing, who he’s with, who the opposite team are etc. In the great Ronaldo v Messi debate, I don’t see it as a debate as Ronaldo (love him or hate him) has tested himself wherever he has been, yes, he’s ben to the top clubs in whichever country he has been in, but we know he can do it on a cold Tuesday in Bolton, Celta, and soon Bologna.

    In my limited opinion, Messi goes missing internationally whereas Ron has dictated the careers of some pretty ordinary Portuguese players in big tournaments.

    As for Maradonna, I didn’t really live through his generation, however, the sheer arrogance of that handball shouldn’t just be outweighed by the fact he scored other good goals. He was better than most players around him, I’ll leave it at that.

    You are clearly in training to be an old curmudgeon <laugh><laugh><laugh>

    If you need any pointers I'm sure Godders could help, but then again you seem to be doing ok anyway <steam>

    Just about old enough to watch Pele in Mexico 1970 to appreciate his incredible quality, in all the years since the emergence of Maradona, l have never understood how Maradona was ever compared to Pele, no where near Pele's ability, and as for integrity; a different universe.

    I understand that. But surely it's possible to put aside personal feelings about the individual, and just admire the talent? It's nice to like the player, but genius has always been pretty indiscriminate about who it chooses to bless.

    You may have a point about Messi , a case can be made for him being a little overrated. I wouldn't make it myself , but I can see why you might.

    Not Maradona though. I still feel the pain of that " hand of God goal" - but that's not my main memory of that game. No need to refer to the rest of his career, his other goal in that game was sublime, one of the best I've ever witnessed, or ever will.

    If I dislike someone, then them having talent makes me dislike them more. It's being a smug bastard that I hate about Ronaldo and he probably wouldn't be smug without talent.

    I do have to point out that I don't know the man so I have no real basis for disliking him.

    I don’t know; try and develop what you have (which isn’t bad let’s face it). Let the coaches coach. Maybe they can be stronger as a team without new signings. Good luck to them. Vile....???

    I forgot to add that he’s a miserable looking git as well...!!!

    Mexico 86 was the first international football memory I have, on holiday at a caravan park in Devon playing with a Pique Football and wondering why everyone was wandering around with a Panini book....

    I’ve grown up around spurs fans my whole life they really are they most deluded fans on the planet. I prefer Pompey and united fans to spurs.

    Messi is not built haha. Maradona was stocky but certainly not Messi.
