good evening
pls i just want tell you guys that you are doing a job and i would appreciate if you guys keep doing that. And secondly am great fan of the CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND, Am talking about the Great Manchester United, i want to ask a question about the french frank ribery, is he really interested in moving down to oldtradfod

Posted by Kev the Tottenham and Sounders Fan on 07/22/2009

First things first - the FORMER Deportivo Cali striker, Fredy Montero, might get a move to the Premier League if he keeps playing well for his current club, Seattle Sounders FC.

Next - WHY WHY WHY did we have to buy the two Kyles from Sheff U?
Naughton is a right-back - Gunter is a right back; they're both young and have potential; we just sold one and bought a more expensive one; RIDICULOUS.
Walker is apparently a centre-back; we need a young one of those why? If anything, we need experienced back-upn there...though it's way, way down on the priorities list with Dawson and Corluka at the club (both of whom should stay, by the way).
