The Ascencio links are boring now... this link is far from boring. 

 

Keita involved in a deal as well....... 

 

I'm in. 

Me too but I'd be in if Keita was swapped. Don't know who, just swapped

No to Italian players, full stop. They've all been unqualified catastrophes at Liverpool.

 

Other than the early PL years with Zola, Vialli, Di Canio and Ravenelli, the only Italian I can think of who has properly excelled in England is Jorginho and he's Brazilian anyway.

But, if Keita goes, who will we blame for everything?

Well, it seems unlikely we'll be fortunate enough to bin him and Chamberlain.

Born in Italy 

 

I was not aware of that. Brazilian parents, born in Italy, ends up playing for Spain. Weird.

Have to pick you up on this, don't buy players because they are Italian has to be one of the most tedious piles of superstitious bollocks that gets repeatedly trotted out here. Mo and Allison came from the Italian league and did alright. I am aware they aren't Italian but if we are using a tiny sample size as definitive proof than that is about as useful.

He was invisible in both games against us. 
 

Sign him up. 

 

I'm sure you're aware he was suspended and that was the joke!

 

Anyways, great player. Was my favourite player at the Euro's last summer. A goal scoring midfielder who gets in the box. It'd be all in on him signing for us if there was a thread of truth it it. 

 

Unfortunately there won't be.

I was about to reply to Chris and say Italy won the European Championship two years ago then I realised two important things. International football is shite and Italy didn't even qualify for the next world Cup.

Aah yes and I remember being made up about that. 

 

I got Diaz and Nunez right.... If this comes off then Stig > Paulie. 

 

 

But you're probably right, it probably won't happen.
