Armchair...more to the point why would Laudrup be willing to sell on the supposed lynchpin of the spine of his team?...because he knows he can con BR into paying over the odds for him where no one else will...this simply cos BR's desire to sign yet another of his ex players hes managed is strong. Then with the transfer kitty topped up Laudrup can replace Williams with...someone he KNOWS to be better and their u also have your answer as to why Chelsea UniTURD and City are not in for him.
I dunno about you Colin but I'm sick of us being shafted by smaller clubs. Are er so desperate to buy these average players? There's a world out there, I'm sure if we search hard enough we'll find the right player for the right price.. FFS what do we hire scouts for?
