Hey Col. I'm only being a little mischevious about Laudrup but I do honestly think, being so well travelled, he may be just a little bit more aware of the potential of foreign stars to bring in at budget prices. I think that, as you say, Chris Samba could add a lot of value to our central defence, particularly with Carra retiring and Martin Skrtyll looking like he will be off elsewhere. I also heard today a whisper that Brendan is now looking to try and poach a time wasteing ball boy from Swansea? Whatever next? I believe that Chelsea are quite interested too!!
