Yes I know this subject is getting boring, but after watching the 8 last teams in the CL I was only impressed by 7 midfielders and 2 of them play for Arsenal. The other 5 were; Riqueleme -probably too old (28) and too slow. Diarra- yes please (but half of europe will want him) Malouda- (26) replacement for Ryan? Deco- unobtainable probably Simao- (26) replacement for Ryan?
So as well as all the usual suspects what do people think of grabbing D'alessandro? Buyout of £6m , regarded as the 'next maradonna' 2 years ago, but got lost at Wolfsburg. Now he's got used to EPL is winning games for Pompey.
