I was hoping that would happen as Robbo's form has started to drop and Bunn's always played very well when he's deputised. Given it's a new start for us and we had strong keepers in reserve, it would've been sensible to sell Robbo and get him off the wage bill. It's one position where we're fine to lose someone.

The only strange thing about this story is that Bunn has handed in a transfer request because he wants first team football every week. Surely he doesn't think he'll displace John Ruddy. If he does go to Norwich I'm sure he'll end up on the bench where he would be in the same position if he stayed, which unfortunately doesn't look like being the case with nobody wanting to take Robinson off our hands.

If you do get him you'll be getting a good keeper.
If Ruddy continues to perform as well as he did last season then we will probably get offers for him which we can't refuse. If we have Bunn already integrated into the squad then we will have a ready made replacement. That's the way I see it, anyway.

Dont worry mate, we'll get him. The president would not have said anything if negotiations weren't close.

I hope that news about Falcao is false. Would be depressing.

News is doing rounds that we've made a bid for Tiote.

Falcao can't go to that poverty league, he just can't...he' too GOAT to go there.


Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

The signing of Buttner while surprising doesn’t equal that going to be a bad signing nor a good signing, just means not lot people know about him & because they don’t know about him they jump the gun & state that he cant be that good a player/signing, every player deserves a chance to impress & Buttner 23 so has time on his side.

I can think of Vida & Evra who had same thing labeled at them when they joined us & didn’t have best starts to there careers with us but after few months got to grips with PL & started playing key roles in our recent title/cup successes in the last few years, so give him a chance to see what his like before I make judgment on him.

Only things known of him are what people have said & its split 50-50, heard some say arrogant, weak & not worth 4M, then on other side seen people say his aggressive, loves getting down the Left flank & good bargain buy for us. At start of this new season he will be back up to Evra while getting games learning how PL is. As ive said already next summer I see Evra being moved on so that leave Fabio & (Now) Buttner both fighting for the main LB spot in our side from start of the 13/14 season.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Apparently United's Dutch scout compiled a list of the top 5 players in each position, and Buttner was 3rd or 4th for left back. As in, only the 3rd or 4th best left back in the Dutch league. Uhmm.

Saw same interview, Ed van Stijn (Our chief Dutch scout) said that he rated him higher then Jetro Williams at PSV & Buttners should of gone to this summers Euros instead of Jetro.

Also read the quote carefully

"They (the club) ask you to create a top five of the best players in the league for every position. I had Buttner at number three or four on my list."

A list of the best 5 players in LB position on that list from Dutch League not the best to worst (1 through 5) from that list if you want its a list of the best 5 LB in the Dutch League, not 3rd or 4th best out the 5 on it but 3rd or 4th place on the list, that’s how I read it anyway.

What also unknown is how much other detail is on the "list" works, I have highly doubt Ed van Stijn handed over a list of 5 best LB in Dutch League last season that impressed him & that was it? No mention of age, fee, wages, potential, personality, attacking/defensive abilities. All thing SAF will consider before making a move (As SAF has final say on all transfers & he goes on what our scouts say before even putting a bid in).

Normally we send our main chief scout Martian Ferguson to watch a talent we feel impresses us alot so if Martian went to watch him live & was impressed he would have told SAF about him & if Baines didn’t work out then Buttner great back up option to have. Also the other of list may not been what SAF looking for or may joined a new club again something not considered by many. Its not first time we have done well going after a back up option as Ole was back up instead of Shearer & Yorke instead of Patrick Kluivert. Hell if Bild in Germany are to be believed (Normally spot on imo) we bid 30M Euros for Lewandoski earlier in the summer which Dortmund rejected so if he did arrive I highly doubt SAF would made a move for RvP who did join us so was RvP back up option then? So not as if club making a move for a back up option cos the original target didnt happen hasnt always been a bad thing.

Think im right in saying Buttners switch to Wing/Fullback a very new thing for him as up until recently he was a LW/LM? So for us to not only become interested but to make a move to buy him, suggests we think capable of playing for us & doing well. When comes to SAF & defenders his normally spot on (I would say CB is area SAF gets it most right more then any other area on pitch when comes to buying players but that’s up for debate).

Wont change fact that his 23 & deserves a chance to impress, I don’t expect him to hit the ground running, it will take little while for him to get to grips with PL & the club as a whole & what is expected of him while his with us. If it doesn’t work out then move him on & properly recoup the 4M he cost us in transfer fee. This season he will be a back up to Evra & when Evra needs a break or Evra not in form he can step in to cover so he will be given a chance that im sure of. But I can’t understand why people are writing him off now after not even seeing him play once before joined us, find that baffling. I will watch him closely this season for us before making a judgment on him.

Two latest rumor signings of Tiote and Navas would be so fucking good, really don't see the Navas deal happening not sure about the Tiote one.
