All you on these blogs who were getting angry at our board for not having more than 35 million to spend, what do you say now? All you needed to do is be patient. Of course we have more money than that. They are just smart about it and want to get a good deal as possible.
We are going to get whoever we believe will strengthen us unless it's a ridiculous amount of money.
We won the treble! Wouldn't you think Txiki, Laporta and Pep know what they are doing?

hope robinho never join us, as i never was a fan of this babytoy.
that's more clear for me after his crappy performances at the confed cup.
now everybody will come and defend him, how good he really is.
your opinion.
when he were given a yellow card for every diver he made til' now, he would be suspended for life.
don't like this steve-urkel-like-looking-clown.
he could fit in the cosby show as comedian, but never at barca

But wait a minute,all of these guys are roughly the same age as Eto'o.So are they just looking to freshen up the squad,or make a timely profit? As far as I can see none of these guys bring anything more significant to the team.

He is an improvement but will not solve our problems. Barcelona is perfectly fine with Eto'o. The problem is that we don't have a Striker/Winger that can come in and change the game when we are losing. Last season, we had no one that can do that and if we sell Eto'o and buy David Villa, he will probably score more goals but we still wont have a game changing sub. Having both would be a dream but unfortunately, we cant spend all our transfer money on him since we have other priorities. Plus, he cant brake the bus.

Don't like Villa much, he is a pure DIVER. With that much money, we could get the Hunter or Benzema or even Torres. They are young & talented + proven to be prolific enough in the box.

I'll say that swapping Villa for Eto'o doesn't really solve the Plan B difficulty, unless they're thinking of putting Villa on the wing and Henry as the striker, when needed.

Frankly, I'd rather keep Eto'o and blow that 45m on Ribery.

James said...

Where would we get 45m to blow if we don't sell Eto'o for 30?

I think Villa is a better finisher than Eto'o, he is fast too which will allow Pep to utilize him in pressuring high on the opponent just like Eto'o, but what I really admire about him is his great outside-of-the-area shooting ability, that is something we truly miss from all of our strikers. by the way, if there's one team that is experienced in breaking the two walls of defenders it will be us, all the teams park the buss against us, not just the last season, but for the rest of our history, I don't recall watching a game for Barca with the other team coming at us unless we were in a real shitty form. We still need to get two players on the left a defender and an attacker, and we still got 2 months to do so, so no need to hurry. even Manchester who lost their biggest star aren't rushing the buying.

Signing villa for 40mil would not be a good idea i think since he is same age as Eto'o. We should go for some young talents like Aguero or benzema. I prefer Aguero since he can play as CF and LW and keep Eto for 2 or 3 years.

Villa, I hope he scores a lot of goals for Barca.
