Swansea showing more ambition then us!

Recommended Posts

They''ve made a £3m offer for Watford striker Danny Graham. While we''ve spent more on 2 players, who got exactly the same amount of goals as Graham between them.

That will get rejected.  Plus, Vaughan - for at least £1m less - who is four years younger but with seven more years of experience at a Prem club is IMO a better bit of business.  Wouldn''t say they''re showing more ambition.  I wouldn''t even be surprised if we''d bid for Graham and Shane Long as well.

anyone remember nathan ellington? prolific in the championship with wigan, scored over 30 goals in their promotion season. think he joined WBA after that and did f-all in the prem, couldnt hack it, wasted £3m. just saying spending a lot of money on a player doesnt mean you''re more ambitious and doesnt mean it''ll bring success, may mean you''re more wasteful.

That 1 player gets injured they''ve got nothing for their £3m. 1 of our 2 gets injured, we''ve got the other one.

[quote user="woody"]Don''t be daft! Anyway they were told to go away unless they had £8 million.[/quote]

That was QPR when they bid £2.5m but Watford''s valuation still stands though. Would expect that ''if'' he goes it will be somewhere over £5m.

In Lambert we trust. Not bothered about anyone else except Norwich City whilst Lambert is in charge. Back to back promotions? Dont worry about anyone except us.

I agree with the above posters, that Vaughan has a greater amount of potential due to his age, and albeit small amount of premier league experience. Anyway, as said before, in Lambert we trust.

Mate, surely you know how we work by now. I think Vaughan will be our signing of the summer without even knowing the other players yet. £2.5m is an absolute bargain for a pacy, hardworking striker as young as him with Prem pedigree. Would much rather have him than Graham, CMS or Morrison (even though we are likely to sign one of the latter two as well).

Heartening to know that matter what we achieve, and how we go about it, there will always be morons like the OP ready to bring you back down to earth.ILWT.

Going for a big name signing doesn''t necessarily represent ambition.  I''d rather have a few cheaper players (of a certain quality obvs) than one expensive player, brining in "star" signings is as likely to ruin the ''togetherness'' of the club as anything else.  One star a team does not make!

the OP could have posted exactly the same this time last year and look how wrong he would have been then. chelski paid £50M for torres but we are only bidding 2-2.5M for morrison, no ambition at all these canaries.

Can we not wait til all the transfer activity is completed and everyone has played about ten game before we decide who has shown the most ambition.

That was aimed at the OP by the way.
