Just read that on the mirrors twitter. Must want RICO as replacement.
only way we should allow this to happen is a player exchange for pienaar
Are spurs after Richardson like?
Old story...It's been nailed on since March...
Canny Idea that, there's only 2 minor drawbacks.
1) He plays for Spurs.
2) He plays for Spurs.
Drawback 1) This
Drawback 2) This
Why would baines go to man utd? Seems a daft choice... Unless im missing something about evra being off?
By all accounts Fergie wasn't too impressed with his performances last season.
Because they're better than Everton ?
Better than Evra
Been hearing this for a while, still can't understand it. Evra for Baines would be a downgrade imo. Utd need a RB more than a LB atm.
Baines deserves a chance at a higher level and Evra's getting on.
Looks on the decline
He's the same age as Ashley Cole who is still the best LB in the world imo. Also I'm not sure if Baines is what Man Utd need. He's more about whipping the ball in rather than going past a man. From what I've heard of my Man Utd supporting mates getting the ball in isn't something they've lacked this year if anything they needed a plan b on the wings.
Baines was only dribbled past 10 times this season, whereas Patrice Evra and Ashley Cole were both beaten 29 times..... he also happens to be 4 years younger that the pair of em. Throw in his 5 goals and 2 assist and you can see why Man U are after him....
That dribbled past stat could simply mean he stood off too much, it's the way stats work. (For me he's the best left back in the country, that includes Cole)
Baines is nowhere near as good as Cole. Doesn't even compare for me.
Joe-B is owning this thread.
The Mirror had a "Baines to Utd for £5m" exclusive weeks ago wouldn't believe a word they say
