none of you guys can tell me that you wouldn't be just as surprised as about the robinho transfer.

What is more surprising is that Berbatov just had his medical test and all the paperwork signed At Man United... only for tottenham to pull out of the deal in the last minute of the deadline

They did?

You'll win. You'll play to win. But whatever the result, you were always winners in my heart and champions. And you'll stay that way. GOD HELP YOU!

It went through though. Spurs got Frazier on loan, in return.

Sky Sports News is such a class channel

SSN Studio: So now we go to our reporter live at Old Trafford. Er... do you have any news about the Berbatov's saga?

Reporter: Not at the moment sorry. I have just sent a text to David Gill, the director of Manchester. *Mobile text ringtone rings* Hold on, I just got a message fromDavid saying that the move went through, and Frazier will be going out in the other direction on a loan.

Studio: Ok that's great news for United fans, I'll come back to you later so you can find out more information.

So Berbatov finally moves to Manchester United. [Looks at another host in the studio ] Well Berbatov's dream move finally happens. Well... What do you make of this move? Will this move have any repercussions?

Other host: Hold on i'm sorry, i'll get back to you in a moment. I am currently sending a text to Peter Kenyon.

It's much funnier when you watch it live though

Sky Sports News is annoying. They're making this transfer window out to be the most amazing ever or something, as for City, WOW what a ****ing squad Mark Hughes has. Robinho, Castillo, Richards, Johnson, Ireland, Elano, Wright-Phillips, Kompany, Sturridge, Ben Haim, Dunne, Jo, Zabaleta... damn. I think they're going to break the top four before Spurs do and speaking of Spurs, just wow at their squad. When they all settle, wow. Arsene Wenger though, what an arsehole, making everyone think they were dealing for players and NOTHING when we're so bare in midfield and defence. Argh.

I thought this thread was about Daft Punk

Robinho, finally! That's good he left that scum of a team, though I would've preferred him down at Anfield

Watching a replay of some football show that's summarising the EPL action & transfers. This was obviously on last night in England as they're announcing the Robinho & Berbatov deals on air as they happen.

But they showed the Celtic - Rangers game, and the guy said "it's really one of those great rivalries, up there almost with Fernebachy - Gelatesarey, we just don't have anything like that in England anymore".

P.S - I feel like a glory hunter for having a soft spot for Man City. It was always about their unfulfilled potential, I swear

I only have a softspot for City because of Mark Hughes, I believe he deserves a team with this kind of money and to win so many things. Once Wenger truely self destructs at Arsenal, I hope Mark Hughes will become manager. Although, he was a United man, would he even come to Arsenal?

Probably City, but either way it's pretty bad on both occassions. I think Hughes is smart though, he's just going where the money is.

Personally I'm holding out on judging Mark Hughes because I didn't quite like his football at Blackburn. But at the same time, he played how he needed to play to win at Blackburn, which was to kick teams off the park.

He has a whole different set of possibilities at Man City, and I'll see how he makes use of them before labeling him.

Right so far in the Premiership...

Keegan (Newcastle) - Sacked, then not sacked, then resigned, then didn't.
Curbishley (West Ham) - Resigned.

Now the interesting side is, both these clubs have billionaire/foreign ownership. Mike Ashley might as well be foreign, he's the size of a ****ing island. However, Keegan was ready to leave Newcastle because they wanted to sell Owen behind his back and Curbs (Canning Town boy like myself) left because they decided to sell McCartney and Ferdinand to Sunderland behind his back. I guess this is English football these days, all owned by billionaires who don't understand team building and sack managers here and there, splash cash on players that aren't even worth the amounts they pay for them when that money could just be given to a charity or cancer research. It's quite disgusting really, I'm sort of glad Arsenal have refused to completely sell the club to billionaires/foreign owners and try to keep the values of football alive with the way the club is run and so forth. Liverpool and Manchester United can sort of live up to similar perils, but one day those crazy Yank owners will do the unthinkable and sack their great coaches. If Fergie's ever sacked, I'll be amazed. However, City have signed Robinho so much more crazy things can happen. My point is though, players are being sold behind coaches backs etc. kind of like how they do things in Turkey, just minus all the foreign ownership and money to actually burn.

We're going to have another Chelsea with Man City. Great individual players but no team. Sad.

You know something? I don't understand how Spurs spend all this money without investment, yet Arsenal who are supposedly better off restrain from spending a penny.

Arsene Wenger is trying to make a point.

In recent years, Arsenal actually was actually limited financially with the investments put into things off the park, like the new stadium. But since moving into the new stadium, they've been making a lot of money, and Wenger could be spending probably about £25-30m more than he is.

Since all these foreign investors (I actually typed incestors then erased it ) came into the league, he's been getting tighter and tighter with how he uses the money. To me it looks like he wants to try and fight the capitalist attitudes that are sneaking into football.

It's commendable, but also could prove to be naive. Arsenal should be playing for trophies all the time, not looking proudly upon their kids and saying "wow, we're going to be a real force in two years time ". That's something more suited to a club like Everton.
