    He always caught my eye when he played for spurs. Not afraid of putting his foot in and not take no prisoners.

    Comes on as a sub, gets a few cheeky runs and step overs in, maybe has a shot on goal. They'll be rocking and we will be buzzing.

    He's coming into a very positive dressing room, with a clearly very nice man managing the club with a hands off director.

    It might see him thrive.

    Arfa was sound for years to be fair. He only had troubles when he got fat as ****.

    So....

    163 appearances in his career. He is 25. Are we sure he is not just ****?

    Maybe, just maybe we should give Saivet a chance.

    £10m is a snip in today's market...assuming he can do the biz.

    It really is. You can get superb players like Muto, Murphy and Joselu for around the £10m mark

    ha ha, and who could forget the mercurial Albert Luque? For every murphy and muto there will be a cabaye, ben arfa and merino tho so we all live in hope, that's why ashley is still ****ing here and in no rush to sell.

    We really are magpies in the true sense of the word....Ooooooh look, something ****ing new and shiney....we'll have that !

    Is he likely to be better than some of the players we currently have on our books....lets take a look :-

    Atsu - without a shadow of a ****ing doubt
    Shelvey - most likely. Shelvey is too inconsistent, if this lad can be half as good as shelvey could be but do it week in week out that'll do for me.
    Ki - ****ing obvs
    Aarons - see Ki
    Colback - ****ing give owa

    I've left Hayden out as he actually puts the effort in week in week out, pops up with the odd goal and does a reasonable job for a squad player (he ain't no purple player tho).

    If he really turns out to be absolute pony then no harm done, he can **** off back to Schalke in 4 months time, simples.

    Be interesting to see where he fits in to the team. If sticking with 5-4-1 he's fighting Hayden or Shelvey for a starting spot with Ki and the Longstaff brothers moving down the pecking order I suppose. If going 5-3-2 then where do ASM and Almiron fit into the team? St max up top off a CF and Miggy in one of the three spots leaving the aforementioned fight for the other 2 spaces.

    Also we have a 25 man squad, I get Jethro and possibly Dummy will probably be left out now but it means 2/3 of the current squad are on the way out if we get Bentaleb and the inter winger/fullback in plus a mystery player.
