Na, Xabi just wanted to play for a team he could win leagues titles with.
What's Xabi got to do with the fact he spent a shitload of money anyway? Take out Xabi's fee and Rafa still spent around £200m. Saying he was hindered by a lack of money was stupid. He clearly wasn't.
Fair enough but I didn't mention them did I? i just pointed out he spent over £220m when he was quoted as to have been hindered by a lack of money which obviously wasn't the case.
Ok fair enough but he wasn't exactly a world beater was he?
You mean, "I can't justify it so I'll say come up with some pathetic attempt at comparison and play the cool guy with enough said, stop whining." Sweet dude.
What's that got to do with it? That wasn't my point was it? Twist it all you want. Agreeing a £20m deal for Aqualani was as you put it, "a huge mistake."
You're attempts to justify it again on something completely irrelevant (finishing 2nd) doesn't change it was an awful amount of money and a poor signing.
Play a lot of twister do you by any chance?!
