    Palacios- off tut Stoke

    I have heard rumors this is a done deal?!

    Anyone got any info on this transfer?

    If it has do we need a replacement because my dog is available for £5per match and he only wants a pigs ear as his appearence fee!

    Seriously though, has it happened? do we need to replace him? or will Sandro/Hudds be enough as the more defensive CM options?

    Las Diaara has been suggested! are we kidding ourselves?

    So many Rumors and questions!

    • Yup who can we get in to replace him?????

      We will miss his ability to pass straight to the opposition.

      His nack of tackling the man not the ball.

      His skill at no matter how many times he strikes the ball he keeps it well away from that net!!

      I think we will survive without him ;o)

      • Nick I agree his flaws are plain to see,

        But selling him will leave us with two more defensively minded players to choose from in CM, with Sandro being njured we will almost certainly eed to strengthen (especially as Livermore is out on loan)

        I fear we may be edging close to Parker! I hope not, but I wouldn't be suprised. Would Tiote be on the market? he was quality last season!

        Is Las Diarra realistic?


    • Palacios was a rubbish signing, sure he did his best to break up play but he was a shit passer and weak on the ball. So many games were lost on his inability to retain the ball in crucial areas of the pitch. Good riddance, Diarra is the perfect replacement...

      • yes diarra will b ean upgrade of wilson.

        but how do u fit diarra,sandro & modric in to the 2 CM positions?

        thats why wilson is a handy back up sub.

        u have to play modric so that leaves the 1 DM position to either diarra or sandro.

        i personally prefer sandro & would hate for him to drop out the team to accomodate diarra.

        i cant see us paying 15m for diarra to be back up to sandro.
