'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Out of chances, out of pocket

A big thanks to Graeme Souness this morning as we count the cost of his efforts to turn us into a 'proper club`. Having been ravaged by taking a £5m loss on Boumsong and watched millions go down the drain as Owen`s over-priced value depreciated like a BMW, the club decided today to take a full hit on Albert Luque, losing £9.5m in the process as he looks set to join Ajax on a free.

yup the scotch muppet thanks alot. Hope he does go to Ajax the only good thing to come out is cutting his wage out but known our fkn luck we will offer to pay half, just watch.

£40k a week. I think the only way we'd lose him for a free was if they took the full wages.

all foreign players going to the prem are over priced, foreign teams know prem clubs will pay big bucks and chelski have helped this problem no end, mangers nowdays try and make the quick fix instead of investing in youth for the future 9.5 mil would have gone along way in the youth academy

Blue is the Colour - When you have a player who cant hit a barn door and is a major let down and is on £40k a week not to mention that souness the c@ck bought the knacker. Yes i agree its no way to do business but we take it as a lesson learned and any money we get back from the luque deal has to be looked on as positive.And as for doing a Leeds i honestly cant see any team going the way they did by burning the candle at both ends. Then again if you r a Chelsea Fan how can you reason £85m for Ronaldinio ??? now thats crossing the line for a player who hasnt really played well last season and sky sports comentated on his weight.
