Why the hell didn't we sign......

Recommended Posts

Well I for one will hold my hands up and say I know absolutely nothing about this guy and have never seen him play. Maybe you could give us your in depth knowledge of this player and tell us all why he " would''ve been a good fit at CR" .

You obviously didn''t watch the Confederations final!

Spanish football is dead! Barca got walked off the park by some carnival dancers, sideshow bob and (in the view of one Joseph Barton) a ladyboy!

Let stoke have him!

I don''t think it is an excellent bit of business. He was out all of last season with injury. Add to that some of his past performances by all accounts have been very mixed and on occasions has been described as a liability

Well people are just a bit down that an other team is doing bussiness and there is no concrete news of any signings at CR yet... Doesn''t matter who they sign...there doing (good????) bussiness.

Get real people , there will be some signings at FCR too soon !!!

Do you assume he is going to be good just because he is Spanish?  Dont forget, we also have our own Spanish U21 in Ayala.  While I think its a good signing for Stoke, we dont need him.

Keep up FFSBOR, the only reason we haven''t is he may be deported for tax evasion so we''d be back to good ''ole Wesley again. Andres Iniesta is a much more realistic target now that all Spanish football is suddenly in turmoil.

Always my first signing on Football Manager as he develops into an awesome player! Whether or not the real Muniesa is as much of a coup I dont know :D

Great piece of PR in that article too - ''I looked around the stadium and the training facilities and was very impressed''. No offence to Stoke, but I find it hard to imagine that someone can come from Barcelona, having been exclusively schooled there and be impressed by Stoke...

I wouldn''t call it "in-depth knowledge" but he''s a product of the Barcelona youth acadamy, he''s played for the Barca B side and the senior side, he''s capped for the Spain U-21 side (the side that won the most recent U-21 Euro Champs).

Aside from that he''s got lots of potential and can play at CB or LB which is where we could do with some cover and whats more he was available for free.
