Personally, I'd put money on Aquilani to beat you in a fight
Meh I'll punch him right back 1. Cuz he punched me, and 2. Cuz it makes way for Lucas' spot in the team
I'm not fully sold on the Aquilani deal. The price is worrying but then again it was the same when we bought Torres and that turned out brilliantly.His injury history is very concerning to me tho. I hope he'll have what it takes to survive in the PL. Italians haven't really set the PL a light over the years, Zola possibly being the best out of a bunch that's come over here to play football. Di Canio - Di Matteo and Ravanelli all adjusted OK so there's hope he'll do the same....I'm just concerned about the physical side of our game on a player that's spent quite a bit of time on the physios table than out playing for his team.I'm not writing the guy off before hes even kicked a ball folks, just have concerns that's all. Lets say he fails to adjust and seeks a transfer away after the world cup, do you think we'll get anywhere near what we've paid out for him? I have grave doubts we would.Anyways, good luck to him.....i hope he more than fills Xabi's boots this coming season.If he doesn't we always have the might shite of Lucas!! (EEK)
I share your worries Dani. One thing that can be said about Xabi is that not only is he technically talented but he's not affraid of a good tackle both giving and getting.

the 2 time xabi broke his metatarsil was because he s**t out of 50/50 challenges and he wasnt the toughest guy on the field.....but iam sick of talkin about someone who isnt our player and didnt want to play for us....there are worries with all signings,torres was a worrie when we signed him,people didnt rate him infront of goal and also claimed he was a bit of a softie how wrong were they now,xabi when he came in no-one hardly new him yet we all no our history,the list is endless and its not just at our club,he hasnt signed and has to go through a thorough medical that will be tough,from what ive been reading around the tinternet roma had around 8 players out with injuries last season and rushed playyers back into cover other positions so its not all as bad as we think,we have 1 of the best medical staff/teams in the world so if anyone can get him back on track then its us plus the operation he had is supposed to have cured his ankle problem,he has also had tendonitis but so did gerrard when he was younger....there are alot of what ifs in signing anyone look at van horse face when he signed for the manks and look what he did in his 1st season,dani i here what your sayin but the lad is 25 best years ahead of him and coming to the best club in the world with the staff to match
Now now Paisley, don't go upsetting KT, you know how delicate he can be about Lucas
there are worries with all signings,torres was a worrie when we signed him,people didnt rate him infront of goal and also claimed he was a bit of a softie how wrong were they now
