Barca will murder Real. Loving seeing them fail. Great move from Fergie to sell them Heinze. He's shit.

West Ham are so crap. They lack anybody who can do anything slightly creative and Carlton Cole is totally shit. He'd be shit in the championship.

What odds on west ham going down? Might put a few quid on them, they look awful. Zola was a terrible appointment.

zola's gone from 4-3-3 'attacking entertaining Puzzled ' formation to us looking like an away team at home. so bad tonight, and to think they gave cole a 5 year contract last week? unreal.

yeah they looked like we did at the start of the season, they should have had a pen but a point would have been undeserved. if only little luka had a better shot on him, not looking so lightweight these days - was it f365 who were commenting on how the hell cole has sustained a top flight career being consistently a 1 in 5 or 6 striker

We should have deffo had a pen aswell tho for that blatant handball.

Some of Luka's touches tonight were special. Does well throwing his weight around aswell sometimes. Sure he stuck some big lad on his arse the other day.

I'm still to be convinced by him, one swallow etc etc I think if he played in italy he could really really shine though.
One player who is looking pants is Bentley, he looks like he's got fat as well. He will always have his touch but he's looking sluggish of late and his delivery hasn't been great which was his forte.
Good to see Ledley playing properly again and Lennon picking out players with crosses.

bentleys got so complacent..
i think we look so much better with modric - we got battered against pools midfield in the 2-1 because they worked so hard pressing at all times and he got marginalised, but thats what pool do so well - in open games i think he'll come alive more and more - if he can spend a few years building himself up in the prem then yeah, in italy and spain he will be great. i wonder if we'll see arshavin in january, either us, man city, or i suspect arsenal. whether hes overrated or not i think hes got the ingredients to be very special in the prem too

If arshavin was that good he'd have gone in the summer. Its all agent talk and leaks from the russians trying to secure a big money move. I doubt anyone put a serious bid in for him, not for the silly money the papers were saying. I don't see him coming to england at all. Man city have got bigger fish to fry and i dont think Wenger would want another 'not midfield not striker' type player. He needs one or the other.

dunno apparantly he visited our training ground 3 times or something, zenit wanted all the money up front though which is completely unrealistic these days - think hes in a position where most of the big boys have good players though. we definately need a creative player further up the pitch as well as we look pretty one dimensional without luka - hope harrys sandbagging about only getting loans, wheres the berba money gone otherwise

He's pretty unproven for them to be demanding huge sums.
The berba money has probably gone ack in Levy's pocket! Im sure he and Enic have realised by now they're not going to sell the club anytime soon and especially not for the huge profit they thought. I think it could be a case of loans and then rape pompey in the summer. My guess is kranjker and diarra, who would sort your midfield out proper. Maybe crouch depending on how low pompey finish but can't see it.

The word on the street in Russia is that Arshavin was made an offer by an English club (possibly Spurs - or possibly more than one) but turned it down because he wants to play in Spain not England. And it's apparently more about the weather and lifestyle than the football Laughing out loud

andy, i'm sure i read a while ago that zenit won't buy any non white players (or something like that) because they don't think there fans would be too happy and because of that they have to pay inflated prices (eg. danny for 30 million euros), can you confirm?
