We'd need to get Barry's shorts back out of retirement.

Really quite excited by the Sanson stuff.  Sounds like a few other PL teams have asked about him in the past, but Marseille have been asking for the big bucks.  Now they need the cash, we've popped in and potentially got him for (relatively) some money we found down the back of the sofa.

This, the Martinez deal and Doug the summer before point towards a club that's got it's finger on the pulse when it comes to recruitment, being inventive and taking advantage of problems that arise for other teams.

I still find it hard to believe it's us operating this way, but there you go.

Seems to me that Smith invariably improves players (polar opposite of our last few managers) so even if your excited when you see him play, you will probably be even more excited in a few months.

Quite, it is hard to believe afters years of chaos with one clusterfuck to another. While watching with envy models like Swansea (a few years ago), Southampton and of course Leicester City. When a club is run well they can play attractive and competitive football and also seem to face set-backs without too much fuss. I know Swansea are now back in the Championship, but a club of their size to come up like they did and for a while they held their heads up well in the Premier League.

We now have a plan with lots of people hand picked to fulfil it and hopefully build upon it. It's all very exciting.

He is in the Marseille squad for their game tomorrow so perhaps not as close as thought.

Christ, I hope he's not as bad as most of Houllier's signings.

Ha, well the type he had lined-up for summer '11 (Cabaye, Fofana, someone else fancy sounding and possibly French).

Gervinho was one that Houllier had said was going to sign.
