We have signed Keita who looks to start beside Yaya and one of possibly Xavi/Iniesta. Besides this we will sign another CM, a winger and a striker. Remember that we have Pep now so we do not necessarily have to directly replace him.
Yeh maybe, but we were in a difficult situation as everybody knew that we are building a new team and want to get rid of the older players. On the other hand, Scolari really wanted to have Deco in his team so we could have tried to play hardball.
Well as a Celtic fan I never liked him and would even dare to call him a cheating scumbag. But he played for Barça and was an integral part of our midfield: did the dirty work and generally made the team tick over.
This was fine until he started to be involved in other things more connected to the number before seventy and getting wasted than playing footy for Barça. I'm sorry but the last two years have been a joke. I wish him all the best actually, I've got one of those love/hate things going.
BTW, the cash they've got for him is shameful. It's beginning to look more like a car boot sale evey day.
Do car boot sales exist in Ireland, Youngie? :smileani:
He was a bit of a ****, but he did play a part in those 2 great seasons. Plus, he got a couple of goals against those chumps that dare to share the city of Barcelona with us, always a good thing. Plus, for his age, we probably wouldn't get a lot of money from anyone. Cheers for the work, old chum.
