how anyone can be disappointed with signing Diame when the other option is spearing, is beyond me.
Maybe because spearing isn't the ONLY other option. We could buy someone better? Why a concept so simple is beyond you is beyond me...
Exactly. You don't just buy a player simply because he's slightly better than a player we already have - and a player that's not even first choice for us, at that.
I rate Lucas highly, and I can't see us signing someone better than him in that position, 1. Because they'd cost big bucks, and 2. Because there's no real need for it. I'd like to see us sign someone who can compete with Lucas though, or at the least, provide quality backup. Is Lassana Diarra still knocking about, or what's his status?
