'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Two in the Top Five!

In securing the services of David De Gea, from Atletico Madrid, for an estimated fee of 18.9 million, United have paid the second highest transfer fee for a goalkeeper.

But the fee we paid still lags a long way behind the record fee for a goalkeeper which is a staggering 32.6 million paid for the services of Gianluigi Buffon.

Below are the top five deals for keepers:-

1. Gianluigi Buffon - 32.6 million

2. David de Gea - 18.9 million

3. Angelo Peruzzi - 10.5 million

4. Craig Gordon - 9 million

5. Fabien Barthez - 7.8 million

Interesting to note that we`re nestling in fifth position as well when we signed a certain Frenchman!

You were broke - roumour has it that this summer's transfer spending is partly down to you hoarding your funds for when VDS, Scholes, Neville etc. retired, and partly down to a mysterious Qatari benefactor footing part of the bill. And while it's admirable that taggart is signing youngsters with potential, he hasn't really done much to address the problems inherent in your midfield, nor has he bought anyone with enough experience to replace the Scholes and Nevilles of this world.

fcb what happened to not believing news from unreliable sources? 'A source in the Daily Star Sunday said: "The word is that this is money from Qatar"'. Haha! Fair dues with the midfield problem still being existant but it's still early days. I'm trying to be as optimistic as possible, as you can most probably tell :P

Hoarding our funds? You mean planning ahead logically and using our income, such as the 90 million Ronaldo money, to replace outgoing players leaving us with near 40 million for our midfield, without including the money from the sales of Gibson, Brown, O'Shea and the potential sale of Berbatov.

If you had planned ahead logically the centre of your midfield would not look as weak as it currently does. The simple fact of it is any surplus U*d had was going on servicing their debt for the past couple of years as well as paying huge admin fees to your top execs( all the while screwing their own fans ). The board obviously feel they have serviced that debt to a reasonable level ( in their eyes ) so are happy to release funds for transfers and for U*d to continue their policy of paying silly money for players.

Hi kettle, it's rather silly isn't it? That's what I always thought when everyone roundly criticised City for doing what U*d have been doing for years. Your's in silliness, pot.

Dear pot, why let hypocrites bother you? It's easier to laugh, wind-up and not pay attention to them rather than argue a perfectly fair and well though out point which will ultimately fail due to their stubborness and lack of reason. Kettle.

Fair point, when it's coming from rival fans it doesn't really bother me if I'm honest, it's to be expected. The thing that bothers me is when it's coming from all angles for example pundits, journalists and just about everyone associated with football that the hypocrisy starts to wind me up.

Most of the time it's blind hatred and jealousy with no real reason or logic behind it. Why let that irrational thinking annoy you? Use it against them and laugh at their responses when they've got no argument.
