at no point in what I posted did I say he was on the decline

I just said this is the age most football players peak

You said he's got nowhere to go but down? He's a class act and it surprises me you're not drooling over the prospect of potentially getting him.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

I am extremely excited about Lavezzi, but I dont want the entire squad being revamped again in 3 or 4 years

One of the reasons Hazard is so enticing is his sheer youth. He's 21. He's not as proven but I want to see us go long term. half the squad is already a bunch of dinosaurs

Though seeing as how much youth we've bought lately, maybe it couldnt hurt to get some middle of the road guys. Either our squad is too old or too young

That's where Marin and De Bruyne come in.

He's not the type who would stick around for long. He'll just be another Robben for us. Exciting, but leaves in a few years time.

I don't mind that as long as we get paid well, but he's not th elong term solution you're looking for.

Exactly. A few guys in their prime won't hurt. Allows McEachran, De Bruyne, Marin and other young guys to learn and be ready for when they move on.

The advantage for Hazard is that even if he doesnt stay, atleast we'll make good money off him

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Thought you wanted long term?

I'd like Hazard too, but only if he plays on the left wing. He has more pace than Mata so would suit that position a lot better.

Doubt he's gonna come anyway.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Hazard comes, huge burst of energy, then goes to Madrid for $$$$

Lavezzi comes, amazing player, ends up like Malouda

see the problem?

There's no problem if Lavezzi helps us win trophies while he is here. He's 27 not 30.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

I think I just really hate Malouda

Think Bamford and Piazon are ready to get into the sub striker Kalou role?

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Hazard would be better long term as you would make a mega profit on him when Madrid come calling 2 or 3 years from now and that money can be reinvested in over players.
