re: January 2013 Transfer Window (Soon to be featuring Crazy Jim & Sexy Natalie)
Apparently we've signed another Dutch nutjob, on the same lines as Drenthe and Andy Van Der Meyde..
The knee sounded the most serious to me.
We don't need another player with a dodgy medical record.
Louis van Gaal rates him, together with Kevin Strootman from PSV, they are seen as the Dutch central midfield of the future.
The court case sounded too vague to me, it may have no bearing on his playing in England.
But nothing is certain, that I will say.
Another aspect which may be worrying is his going out.
You'd think with a girlfriend, he'd be past that with a stable domestic situation.
We certainly don't need another VDM on our hands.
One pundit did say, do Everton not do their homework?..
Whether all these reasons are why Twente want to get rid, they're probably more happy to get the money.
Although Steve McClaren seems to be in a panic now, trying to get a successor (most likely Djuric from Heerenveen)
Fer hit the headlines last year after splashing out Ł22,000 on a pet horse for his girlfriend - only to find out that she can't keep it because she lives in a block of flats.
The Holland midfielder made the extravagant purchase at an auction of former race horses.
But his noble gesture fell flat when his other half pointed out that she lives in a block of apartments and has no way of accommodating or looking after the stallion called Django. Fer was forced to quickly offload the horse and become a laughing stock among his team-mates.
Court cases, buying horses for girlfriends, boozing. Whatever, he looks like a BEAST
I can't believe anyone would give Balotelli the stupid money that city are.
He's probably still being sold on his potential that pretty much is the only reason he got the move to Money City in the first place. Surely by now people would just accept he's too mentally unstable to be worth the risk.
