  1. swing and a miss says:

    hmmm michael ballack…and we just got another international slot hmm..

  2. no chance we sign ballack. Far too old for the team model and no chance of a re-sell. Plus, he will command a BIG salary. Sounds like a red bull.

  3. Don’t really see what value Ballack would bring to our team at this point in his career. He’d take minutes away from Okugo and probably demand to be captain or something stupid like that.

  4. The article poses the question of AEG buying the Tottenham. Why not Everton? the owner is looking for a buyer and maybe AEG has the pockets to move Everton up the ladder. Besides LD already likes Everton and the fans love him.

  5. Hey there, I came across your internet site by using Search engines even while seeking a identical issue, your web site emerged, seems like beneficial. I’ve added to favourites types|included in the book marking.
