Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Sinclair is a steal for the price he went for. Great business by City replacing Johnson with Sinclair and making a neat profit in the process. Bit confused why Sinclair was so eager to move when he said he left Chelsea for Swansea to guarantee first team opportunities and now he's moving to a club who have already said he'll be a squad player. Can't see it helping his chances of an England call up but who knows why :roy picks his squads. Great moves for Rodwell and Sinclair but only if they get the chances to break into the first team which I imagine they will get.

City have done good business and have not overpaid for the english lads like they did a couple seasons back when they signed milner, barry and lescott (who don't get me wrong is a very good defender now)

Zouma's good on FM, surprised you haven't seen him yet as he usually develops very well.

They're not naive around transfers anymore, plus they are champions so clubs will give them more respect in discussions.

Starting to think we are done in the window, which isn't good. But we've spent over £80m, so it's understandable. Everyone we have bought this window has been 23 and under, so we're looking long term. But still feel a striker and central midfielder short. Oh well.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Chelsea have also done good imo also even with the money spent, i did half expect roman to get a striker in but if torres is finally hitting form may not need one plus chelsea ain't ones to shy away from the January window if needed. Think the Hazard signing alone would make me happy if i was a chelsea fan.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Chelsea aren't a case of what they have brought in but they what they haven't. Letting your best player over the last god knows how many years go for free and not replacing him at all is madness to me. I know they spent £50m on Torres but surely it's obvious he isn't to be relied on to contribute enough goals to win you the league. He wouldn't be an issue if he had competition but there's literally only him and Sturridge and Sturridge is absolute trash right now. Torres will get goals this season with the service he has but a player like Falcao could likely get double that amount with the same service. I seriously wonder if the people who think Torres is back to form have actually watched any Chelsea games this season because he hasn't been good despite getting on the scoresheet. That Lukaku guy who West Brom signed seems like a straight replacement for Drogba with his power and technical ability but I guess they beat you to it . Still that big DM problem too that hasn't been solved.

Don't think Torres will ever go back to his old self but he does seem to have gained some confidence back. At least he's having some moments of brilliance that last season he probably would have had a heart attack at if the ball came to him at that point .

Im not sure what to do with him tbh. He's looking ok and could at least be half decent again as long as his confidence keeps rising. If they outright replace him I see him becoming useless very quickly again. Not even good as a decent backup. Just outright usless. Really and truly holding onto Lukaku and giving him a bit more gametime would have been the best thing to do IMO.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Sticking with Torres as first choice for a season isn't the worst move but having no reserve to him is a terrible plan, especially when you let Lukaku go out on loan.
