Essein is very very good from what seen him this season. He had a very impressive performance against Werder Bremen in the CL. He looks hard as nails, big and controls midfield with authority, looks like the best candidate available to fill the irishmans patch.

He is a superb player and would be great as a DMC/MC for us. That was a COME AND GET ME PLEA FOR UNITED yesterday, and now its up to the board to finish the deal. Hopefully they won't screw it up.

the price is the stumbling block, will the PLC let Fergie splash £15m on another French-based midfielder ?

Essien is a gun player. Now the only two questions that will need to be answered are:

1. Will United act fast and sign him?
...and
2. Will he be able to play as well in the EPL as he is in the French League?

Drogba and Kezman, Mourinho should hire Ranieri as his talent scout. ;)

seriously, Essien is far far better than Djemba ever was, the only thing they have in common is their position, the country they played in and they are both from the same continent.

Essien would be a dream signing, but I have the opinion that we should sign Juninho as well.....He would cover our set pieces problems


_________________________Frey

________G.Neville_______Ferdinand______Brown_______Hienze

____________Juninho________Essien________Scholes

__________________Rooney _________ Ronaldo

but the only realistic way we can sign Essien is bringing in La Guen as a manager and move Alex Ferguson upstairs.
