WTF, we already have Van Persie, Rooney, Hernandez and Welbeck + Macheda and Angelo Henriquez. We need a solid holding midfielder and a solid center back. With Falcao, we will just be getting cross in the box and hoping for a header.
That style of football is crap, what happen to the good old one-two pass shreading the other team up.
Yes we need a holding midfielder but how can you be arguing that this wouldn’t be good for us, he’s the best and most deadliest striker in the world, him and Van Persie would win us the Premier League and push us further on in the Champions League. If you have seen him play Athletico don’t put many crosses in the box, he has much more to him than that
Would be an awesome signing
its a wonderful signing, but we need someone to hold our balls and set the pace of the game actually.
Seems a bit strange to me as we are well covered in the striking department but not as strange as the rumours that we are in the market for a central defender when we have recently spent about 25mil on Jones and Smalling as well as having Evans, Vida and Rio having his best season reg injury for quite a while ( also have young Keane doing very well at Leicester). The fact is we need to strenghten and add creativity to the midfield and they will be the only rumours I will pay any decent attention to.
