Veloso is a defensive midfielder mate, modric-lennon-bentley are xtremes for the rest the rest are more forward players than defenders!
But I don't like tottenham to have this kind of player, as for Nani he is not a star definitely and of course neither Valencia!
I'd prefer more english players in your teams guys this thing with work permit shit has every foreign star to play in the island!
We are not talking about english football anymore!
And I think the beginner of this parody is Wenger who sucks!
And the next "Wenger" is the goddamn Arab who took City!
Why someone who knows about football will spend about 150m to get a bunch of "stars"
and his team is in 7th position! And how can someone with brains get a player who is 33 yrs old who is "dead meat" to compete with the most hard teams in the planet (Vieira)
I did imply Veloso a DM, I said "Veloso would make a good signing as he's got the defensive skills aswell"
You say "we are not talking about english football anymore". If you look at the current "big four" with the exception of Arsenal they rely on English players. Man Utd have Rio at the back (who is out of form I know but is key to the United defence) in the middle you have a selection of british midfielders: carrick, scholes, giggs, fletcher, hargreaves (when he's back). At the key player in our striker Wayne Rooney who is easily England's best striker. In Chelsea you have got JT at the back who is the heart of the defence. Ashley Cole who is on good form at the moment and Lampard who is the playmaker of the team and dictates their play. Liverpool rely heavily on Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher & Glen Johnson who are part of the top players at the club. Arsenal are an exception becaue Wenger has an obsession with foreign players. Also there are loads of teams will dominant english players. Look at West Ham & Aston Villa.
Also gets your facts right you say "Why someone who knows about football will spend about 150m to get a bunch of "stars"
and his team is in 7th position!" Man City are 5th with a game in hand so potentially 4th. I hate city but there doing well considering a bunch of players have just been thrown together.
You criticise Valencia. Now being a Man Utd fan I disagree with you. He's just joined the club and is doing a lot better recently. The pace he's got but I think he got room to improve on crossing. He takes the ball past player brilliantly and he's the player for Man Utd who has the most first team appearances which shows Sir Alex, the best manager in history, has faith in him. He's scored some key goals as well. Look at the game against Wigan just gone. He was amazing then, got a goal and was involved in all the play for the others.
You say Vieira is "dead meat". Yes, he might be old but sometimes experience cancels out age. Look at Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. There are games when these two players play in and have such a big impact. Classic Example: Man Utd vs Barcelona Semi-Final Champions Legue 2008. Scholesy comes up with a piece of 30-yard magic and took us to that final. No other player could have taken us through that you need these type of players, that is why Arsenal have struggled in recent seasons. Vieira will bring that experience to City. He's played in the Premier League before and knows how things run. It's a good signing.
