      I know people are disappointed in not getting in a top class CB and fair enough but to get this guy for 48M is an absolute coup. Absolute monster of a player.

      Sort of makes up for that dissapointment that we have potentially a real world class talent committed to join us next year.

      Read today that aside from Pogba, Keita will become the most expensive central midfielder of all time. Not sure if that's true though but can't think of many others who would be more expensive.

      As excellent as Okocha was I'm sure we'll be looking at slightly higher aspirations than that with Keita.

      im just saying they have a similar style of play.
      also i realize most people in england only really know okocha as a bolton player. But he was epic and still considered one of the greatest african players ever.

      Don't think they were that similar at all, okocha was more of a flair player eg the famous goal he scored against oliver khan when he basically embarrassed him whereas keita is more of a player who covers every blade of grass

      Was hoping to watch the match tonight but had to miss it, read he did great though. Also think Kevin Kampl was a very astute signing by RBL, shows their ambition as well to lure the player away from Leverkusen.

      He's ok but will still have to get past Jimmy Milner for a CM slot  ;)

      Maybe we can just name him in the starting eleven in place of Can or Henderson for our future games? He might not be there in person and we'll be playing with 10 men but instead we could do some sort of interpretive dance in the areas we think he would be present.

      Yeah we'd win f**k all but the write ups in The Guardian arts section would be superb.

      Manager apparently unhappy with this recent performances, especially in CL this week, saying something like "we should have left him at home." One journo speculates the transfer might move up to January (presumably that means an additional fee).

      It's probably nothing, but stay tuned...

      My Dortmond friend says Naby is the best player in their league. Pretty strong words! If that's true than we are getting one heck of a player on the cheap.

      Echo says this may not happen, Robby.

      Exact words: “the chances of success are considered somewhat remote.”

      As I said originally, probably nothing. I think the same journo you quote, Andy Kelly, raised the idea of it originally. Got me to click twice so I guess mission accomplished for him!  :roll:

      Next it'll be "Klopp could get season ticket at Old Trafford" with an item saying "This probably won't happen but...." and then the next day the headline is "Klopp shoots down Old Trafford ticket speculation..." I should know better by now.

      Tell you what though it's just a matter of time before the first "Private Fraser" shouts "we're doomed" and proclaims these stories are portentous and that we may have made a mistake with this lad......."he's got a bad attitude you know"  :roll:
