    F1 Transfer Gossip

    Alonso and Magnusse at Mclaren next year. Bianchi or Hulkenberg to Ferrari. I cant see Button retiring just yet though.

    Chelsea make a fair amount, I wouldn't like to speculate how much. How much have they spent this summer? Less than what came in from sales, I believe. £80 million on Diego Costa, Fabregas and Felipe Luis. In all honesty I'm a little embarrased how the big clubs chuck so much money around compared to those in the lower leqgues, but its supply and demand. Howver we have done riducolusly well in this transfer window. I was thinking yesterday the difference between us and United and how we've actually adressed our biggest issues, striker, creative centre mid, a new keeper who's more consistent and a natural leftback. Granted now Costa's injured we need a new striker, maybe Falcao on loan, but to have bought Costa, Fabregas, Courtois kind of, Drogba and Felipe Luis for less than what we sold Lukaku and a defender who cant defend is a brilliant bit of business.  And Torres is leaving too. Kinda sad, but kinda not.

    Alonso £5 million and Cleverly £8 million is all the proof you'll ever need that English players are over priced. And I'm the only one here unbeaten in the head to head fantasy league.

    Madrid and Barca don't get it through oil money but whenever they spend big it's seen as disgusting. So why not with United? You're in mountains of debt and the money you get from selling shirts is made from making kids sow the shirts in Vietnamese workshops for no pay. Besides you've grossly overpaid for Shaw, Fellaini, Herrera and Di Maria. The only big deal that represents any value is Mata. It's as bad as Madrid tbh.

    Because Hamilton has yet again put him in a position where Rosberg either decides to crash or get out of the way. The point Rosberg was trying to make in Spa was that people shouldn't get out of your way just because you're Lewis Hamilton. He's put him in a position where he has to decide whether to have a crash by taking his racing line because he was clearly ahead?  And how would they be getting out of the way for Hamilton when he was already ahead? It's a long race and Rosbergs responsibilty to back out and avoid a crash. Lewis shouldn't have to back out because Nico's front wing is barely in line with Lewis's rear.

    Someone like Blind would be good for them as he can play CDM, CB and LWB. I honestoy have no idea how Johnny Evans is still at United. He's knicking a living tbh.

    I didnt rate him until about last year. He's a great player but worth no where near £70 million, 40 at most and hes made to look a lot better because of Ronaldo. I like him as a player but want United and their flops to fail big time. Reckon it'll be like Ozil, he'll give them a lift for a few months qnd then it'll all go a bit iffy when he gets fed up of having to run onto ballooned and skewed passes from the midfield maestro's of Tom Cleverly, Fellaini and Fletcher.  They needed a CB and CM far more obvioisly tbh. The next week could be mental though. Arsenal need a striker, United 2/3 players, Barca more defenders and players, PSG, Monaco and if there is a lord, AC Milan will spunk the Balotelli money on Torres.

    No he really doesnt anymore. You living in 2011 bro? Notehow he moved across to block Kobayashi at the same corner in 2011, yet yesterday he left plenty of room for both Vettel and Rosberg. Vettel backed out, Nico really should have conceded it and got him next time round with DRS.

    I meant they've both used underhand tacticx to gain a significant advantage, by no means are they the only ones to have done it though.

    Hamilton was a good three quarters of a car length ahead. Nico could have backed out or taken to the escape route and lost at most a second-two seconds which is nothing two laps into a 44 lap race round a 5 mile circuit. I know I'm a Hamilton fan but I genuienly think Rosberg gets more than his fair share of luck when it comes to penalties and warnings because of his good boy image. It doesnt annoy me as much as when it was Vettel always winning because for the most part I like/d Rosberg, even though I'd rather Hamilton win the WDC, but Nico's had a lot of luck this year. I'd love to hea from someone who thinks Rosbergs Monaco Q3 mistake was a genuine mistake. He had provisional pole ahead of Hamilton who was on  4 race winning streak, on the most difficult track to overtake and then just happens to run wide with 30 seconds of the session left, and then reverse back on to the rrack causing yellow flags and not letting anyone else, let alone his teammate and Championship rival set another time. Voila, he has pole and then celebrates it in parc ferme after as if he just won the race. Dont think he'd act like that if it really was a mistake.  Then in Canada he cut the last chicane as iirc Hamilton was trying to overtake him, and then set the fastest first sector of the race by over a second and a half. I still cant believe that wasnt picked up tbh especially as it was for first position; and  there was somebody else around the same time Maybe a race or two earler who got a penalty for something similar.  I don't think what happened today was pre medidated but in mind Monaco defenitely was, its similar to the kind of thing Schumacher used to do, only he got caught because he had a rep for it whilst Nicos seen as some kind of angel. He certainly has a ruthless streak in him just we havent seen it before because he's never really fought for race wins and titles before.  It's one of two things either Vettel (Malaysia 2013) and Rosberg are rreally good at that kind of thing, or Hamilton needs to geg better at lying, cos lasttime he f***ed up. Bloody Germans. Rant/  On the plus side, Max Chilton beat someone today.

    I hate it when people say things like that. The size of the fan base doesn't mean jack shite. We only averaged a crowd of  around 6000 when we got into the Championship as our town is small. How good a football teams is doesn't depend on the amount of fans, it's about how well the club is run and how good the players/staff are... I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the staff, but it reflects badly when a club can't even attract enough fans they have to have a neutral area, which is full of away fans anyway. Their based in pretty nice part of London too.
