I reckon we aught to try and get him. Put him on the right, move becks in the middle, with Keano, and Giggs on the left. Just a thought.
we've got enough midfielders already si, but if giggs were to leave duff would make an excellent replacement. we've already got 5 world-class midfielders, whereas the likes of liverpool still only have 1! for now we should concentrate on getting a couple of decent defenders. i very much doubt blackburn would sell duff anyway. they've been left sunstancial funds by jack walker and i can't see sousness selling his best player.Fred Elliot said:I reckon we aught to try and get him.

true, but he's very versatile, and I liked what I saw in the games I saw him in. I think he's the type of player who could adapt to any position you put him in (well, within reason. obviously, not in goal )dyertribe said:Duff on the right? Wouldn't work.
As you'd know Fred m'boy he is a left-sided lad - if you look at his performance on the right for Ireland against Spain late in the game when he dropped deeper he was always looking to cut inside onto his left.
Duff's best work is down the left. Now Giggsy will not be dropped for him so why not spend the money in an area where you need to improve like central defence or *gasp* between the sticks
Yet Liverpool's midfield still undeniably outplayed Man Utd's when they met earlier in the year at Old Trafford. Not to mention the four previous meetings and the fact that we finished higher in the league than you...we've already got 5 world-class midfielders, whereas the likes of liverpool still only have 1!
Why wouldn't they sell? Blackburn aren't the moneybags club they used to be since big Jack passed on - although he did bequeath a large pot of gold to the club in the form of a fund/kitty.Carson35 said:forget about duff...blackburn wouldn't sell him...
that was different though. shearer wanted to finish his career at his the club where his roots were, and it ws for a world-record fee at the time.
well, fancy making a bet on it?dyertribe said:
I'm well aware of that beefy, and the point is Shearer wanted to leave so they sold - and yes it was a world record therefore the price was right
So if Duff wants to leave and Man U put a bid on the table which BRFC couldn't refuse what's the problem?
improving? not really, I actually think you're mentality has taken a backward step. Theres no doubt that the reds bottled it near the end of the season.Red Mist said:
Besides, why would a good player like Duff want to join YOU, when he could join a team actually improving and going places like us, rather than one on a decline for the last two years?
