Actually, after seeing Diego's jersey, I was very disappointed. He oèted for a plain old "28".
Zamorano had taken it all the way a few years back, because his jersey number read literally "1+8".

By the way, have you heard that Josè Mourinho is not Harry Potter?

Thoughts? Comments?

Sooooo....Ferguson got himself 80M from the transaction...lost Ronaldo and Tevez (40 total competition goals in 08/09)...and added Owen and Valencia.

Now he says he is done in the transfer market. Link

If I were a ManU fan, I'd be pretty miffed that this team has taken a fiarly big step backwards...

I dont' think they are officially "done"....but I think they missed out on the premium talent window. Ribery doesn't appear likely...and Villa appears to be staying put...and everyone else is going to Spain. I dont' see anyone out there likely to come to OT who is going to fix that midfield.

I think they'll make an offer for Trez, and maybe for Xabi alonso.

Tevez to Man City looks to be a done deal...and now Man City is looking to get Adebayor as well. If so, it will be very crowded up front with Robinho, Santa Cruz, Tevez and possibly Adebayor. Not enough goals to spread around to keep everyone happy. Wasn't that Tevez's problem with ManU? I guess it could be worse; Man City originally wanted Eto'o....

Seebs - got any inside info on Chris Mavinga? Liverpool just signed him from PSG. Supposedly a solid youngster to develop at for the defense.

Doutbful for Alonso to go to ManU for obvious reasons. Plus, Rafa already nixed a 30-35M offer from Real Madrid. I think Alonso is staying...

Who knows with their ownership issues. Man U has too much cash to just sit around and do nothing. They'll sign a couple relatively big names.

They already signed one washed up striker...why would they want another one?

I thought that as well when I saw Tevez was going. It's a shame as I was hoping Spurs would sign Santa Cruz, but now it looks like he'll just have to fight for the chance to get on the field. Adebayor would be stupid to go there at this point but, never say never.

The folks over at Manchester City have absolutely no idea what they are doing.

I thought they did a solid job getting Barry for midfield help and Santa Cruz for scoring help....but then they went after Eto'o unsuccessfully...and have dumped a ton of money at Tevez. Why on earth would they even consider Adebeyor? Too many cooks in the kitchen.

And that being said; Now city is rumored to be going after John Terry for 40M.

Seems like they are more concerned about the player's name rather than how he will fit into their team. This team could implode before the New Year...
