Who is the best winger we could hope for ?

Anyone rate Arjen Robben ?

Secretly hoping we could nick him from Madrid while they're buying so many players .

Anyone better and affordable ?

No chance of us getting Robben in my books. He would only go to another Champions League team, or stupid stupid money.

I did rate Elia who I think we could afford, but i'm pretty sure he's off to Ajax which is a shame.

As much as i would love to see him here we dont even have the slightest hope of getting Robben he would cost to much and his wages would be huge, He's only 25 Taxi you cheeky bugger im nearly that :P h has also been one of Madrids best players this season when he has played just had to injury problems.

I still think Kranjcar would be a good addition as he can play on the wing and through the middle of the park but im not sure how much he would cost, If we could get a work permit sorted for Obinna he would spark some life down the right.

I would like to see Manny back here and with Valencia being in financial trouble and him already knowing the setup would make it much easier to land him.

Who is the best winger we could hope for ? Realistically, there isn't one.

Anyone rate Arjen Robben ? I used to think he was great. Now I suspect he is getting a little long in the tooth. Useful, but no longer great.
Secretly hoping we could nick him from Madrid while they're buying so many players . Not a snowball in hell's chance

Anyone better and affordable ? Nope, nobody to fit that criterior. Anyone better we can't afford, anyone we can afford is not much use.



(Sorry was that a little too pessimistic???)

De Mul from sevilla maybe.
Don't think many on here have heared of him before, but i rate him pretty high, and he shouldn't be to expensive.

I this is an area we need to invest in. I'd love to keep arteta in the centre mid position after this seasons desplays.
Although the baines / piennar combination has been very positive I believe moving piennar to the right could be the best
solution. How about;

Downing - 10-15mil - good left foot, english, solid performer in a poor team, international, scored enough goals for a winger

Adam Johnson - 4-8mil - I really like this kid! He's young and talented, got great speed, able to beat players, just needs a little more strength

Hunt - 4-6mil - ok premiership player, good for the squad and could be a surprise, moyes has done it with cahill, jags and lescott!

What do you all think? (I might have the valuations a little wrong so appologies)

Ive read bentley could be part of the tottenham clearout for 7.5mil (couldn't believe it when i heard it) If this is true, i say we do everything we can to sign him. how much are people thinking we have assuming everyone stays.

I think Bentley would be a good signing for us. We are desperate for someone to be comfortable out on that wing and not keep drifting in. Gettin someone with a cross like him would mean a dozen more goals per seaon for the yak, felli and timmy c imo.

If Bentley was that good , why would fat Harry want shut ?

I'm always weary of targets that are already available to buy , as opposed to having to get them from their club managers cold dead hands .

Pienaar and Arteta didn't turn out too badly ;)
