Location: ROYAL RUMBLE AUCTION DRAFT THREAD (wrestling fantasy games section)
re: January 2013 Transfer Window (Soon to be featuring Crazy Jim & Sexy Natalie)
There are rumours that we're in for Leed's Luciano Becchio. I can't say that I'd be particularly happy about that, seems as if we are getting desperate now. The apparently proposed deal would involve a £3.5 million fee plus Steve Morison moving in the other direction. He cost us £2.5 million in July 2011, so that's essentially a £6 million fee for a 29 year old (Becchio) that has never played higher than championship level, a league in which he has failed to score 20 or more league goals in a season, even just once. Panic.
Mind you, our decision to return to our favourite feeder club has set off the now regular monthly Norwich related Leed's seethe to an all new level. The decision to go in for Becchio after signing Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson and Robert Snodgrass seems to have sent them into overdrive. Just check out some of the comments from the Leed's forum 'waccoe':
Course it will be f**king Norwich. We could have Alan Wright playing for us now, bang him on the transfer list and the c**ts would be in for him.
Norwich? Fucking hell

You can just imagine it ... as each Leeds player turns up at Norwich, they start spouting about how good our other players are - cheap scouting.
