Skerritt, June 20, 2013 in Main Discussion - Norwich City
[quote user="Skerritt"] If de gea is with 18m than ruddy must be worth about 4billion.[/quote]
De Gea is a brilliant ''keeper to be fair. There hasn''t really been anyone better than him since he''s been in England.
Though Ruddy is top class too.
[/quote] De gea is a good Keeper in the Spanish leagues but doesn''t quite cut it in a physical league like the prem. if he were to play in the Spanish league he would do very well. Very surprised to see him in the team of the season, but then again, it''s man utd so other keepers from ''small clubs'' like begonia and mignolet (or even Guzan) don''t get a look in.[/quote]
How does he not "quite cut it" in the Prem? He plays for the biggest club in the land (pretty much the biggest in the world) and has just helped them to the league title.
It came as no surprise to me that he was in team of the season.
The guy is top notch, that''s why he is where he is.
[quote user="Indy_Bones"][quote user="Nicko"]I see a post on Twitter about Norwich. It may or may not seem farfetched. That''s irrelevent. I post it to the Pink Un to see what people think. It gets a discussion going. That''s the aim of a forum.[/quote]And this is where you completely fail to see your error.It is NOT irrelevant as to how reliable the information and source is, because most of us don''t want to waste our time in pointless discussions about transfers and deals that will never happen.If some clown decides to put a rumour up on Twitter about us signing Messi for 10p and a bag of chips, then it''s a complete waste of time and energy giving it the time of day, never mind posting it on a discussion forum!Just because it''s a ''discussion'' forum, doesn''t mean that people want to discuss any old tripe that ''sad ken from saddleworth'' has decided to chuck out via social media.Quality over quantity is the key factor here, and if we simply wanted any old gossip regardless, then we''d all be out buying copies of this month''s "Heat" magazine (or some other similar drivel), rather than actually trying to have reasoned conversation about our football club...[/quote]
Coming from the man who suggested Norwich sign Isco or Nani that is a fairly hypocritical statement.

When are we putting in bids for Ter Stegen, Isco and Nani?
Apart from the fact that I stated VERY clearly at the start of the thread that some targets would be seen as more realistic than others, and that you''ve conveniently picked the two LEAST likely signings out of the bunch, one of whom I again VERY clearly stated that it was doubtful we could afford the wages or even attract, but that it was worth asking a simple question over for the sake of a phonecall...
Aspas has since gone to Liverpool for a ''massive'' 7mil fee (less than Blackburn apparently paid for Rhodes), whilst Maher impressed at the Euro U-21''s and is still wanting to play at the top level and be guaranteed game time - something we can offer both of.
What I didn''t do was pull a bunch of random BS off twitter, then try justify it by claiming it was from an "ITK" source, and then randomly attack other posters in my responses. I''ve also tried to give what I consider to be sensible reasons behind the suggestions, and again, at no point have I claimed we''ve made a bid, are likely to sign them or anything along those lines.
If anything, the thread proved how narrow minded many of our fans were in regards to signing ''bigger name'' players, and that many still see us as a small club with little to offer compared to other premiership rivals...
