Micah Richards?

News the weekend suggests Richards and City have failed to agree terms on a new contract with City refusing to pay Richards the £70k per week he wants.

I'd like us to sign him if possible. A top class English youngster who can make the right back birth his own while providing excellent cover at centre half as well.

Belletti as cover at right back(i know it seems strange talking about dropping him after his goal the weekend) but defensively he could be better and he's not getting any younger.

We could let Beach Tal and Paulo go if necessary to help finannce the deal. Obviously not going to happen in january but a summer move would be nice.

Is there still talk about a number of your squad having to be homegrown/English???

Is it a prem league rule or Europe??

Only if there are shorts big enough for his thighs, they're the size of tree trunks (at least, that's what they looked like from the stands). No use splashing cash otherwise...

You know, people who like football usually watches football, not the players thighs icon_wink.gif

Of course I focus solely on the football :-) but Richards' thunder thighs were hard to miss.

Yet, somehow, strange as it must seem, I have missed them icon_eek.gif

Will have to check out Man Citys next game and see what all the fuss is about icon_wink.gif

Would sign him in a heart beat. One of the best young English prospects there are and will only get better. You know he will end up at one of the big four sooner or later. I mean, you wouldn't want him to end up at Man Utd, Arsenal or Everton would you icon_lol.gif

Cheers,

Butch

Great prospect I agree, but it isn't going to happen. We just bought a utility defender who can (apparently) play anywhere across the back four. The next defender we buy will be an Alves type of right back.

Would rather buy Richards, every oppurtunity we have to buy quality English youngsters over continental players will work in our favour in the long run.

Lets show Wenger the English kids can play.

... if its going to take a Rio Ferdinand type fee (aka transfer record for a defender) to land him, then I want a Rio Ferdinand type player to justify the fee...

You must be joking - severely over-rated.

Micah is never going to be going for anything less in the near future. His stock will continue to rise until he is "over the hill". Having said that, I don't think he will move as long as Man City show him they have a chance of competing for silverware. I give it maybe 1 or 2 seasons. After that, he'll move.

Cheers,

Butch

If only the young English talent wasn't so darn overpriced.

it just is probably because of the shortage of it. However Rooney was neither the finished article nor the best option when Man U spent a similar figure. I think we should invest in the feuture. at the end of the day it could be £2mill a year plus wages if he stays forever. thats an absolute bargin in my view (althoug it is alot of money)
