    This Birdy and JamDav spat reads like one person arguing with themselves
    "A Real fan in...

    August: 'We're gonna win the treble!'
    December: 'We're gonna win the double!'
    March: 'We're gonna win the League!'
    June: 'We've got 13 CL."

    Birdy and JamDav arguments, one of the few things in this forum to stand the test of time.

    The discussion between me and Jamdav is way better. At least it's not off topic.

    75mil plus Azpi and Alonso.
    I would not take them, but club is crazy for veterans

    Why are we so crazy about Alonso? One dead weight in Azpilicueta would suffice.

    Obviously, they rate Alba as a starter and want to add some depth on LB position. Azpi seems decent even he is old, but giving him 12mil per year is atrocious. He is captain and leader, could be decent player in big games, we need some character in team
    but paying that money to 33 years old player does not seems right.

    Don't understand why we don't take a punt on a younger LB instead of Alonso as we'll have to replace both Alba and Alonso in 1-2 years otherwise. At RB at least Dest can be sold for at least 15m or so if we want to replace him.

    Guess they have hopes for Balde that he can atleast become a backup to the new signing.

    Because we already have many young players in the team.

    This team lacks experienced players who have great work ethic and leadership.

    Alonso isn't going to bench Alba anyway. Might as well have a 22 year old gamble, someone like Malacia maybe.

    If we are to have experienced players maybe spread them out across the positions so that we don't have to buy 2 players for the same position in the same window.

    On what planet is Alonso some great leader?

    The team has plenty of experience in it and Alonso is not being signed to come and give what they can in terms of leadership.

    He will be there as is happy to be a back up, wont take much to settle and they hope wont cost a lot.

    Not to come in and be a leader or lead with work ethic.

    Well, by that logic, neither is a young cheap player, so I'd rather have a more experienced player in rotation who doesn't need games to build confidence and experience and is ready to go and fill in when needed.
