    Rooney + Cash for Bale.

    Posted before, posted again.
    I should work for one of those papers.

    Although the “Mata is available” reply to Maureen going after Rooney seems to be picking up steam.

    Well played Utd, well played.

  4. OJM says:

    Yeah, even A. Almayouf from Team Kuwait would do. Just sign anyone Ed!!!

  5. wayne says:

    Canada won’t happen in a million years mate,1 Spurs wouldn’t pay 250k a week wages and Rooney won’t move to a club that has little chance of winning fuck all,Spurs are a tier 2 club

    I was working in Kuwait last March. They love football. Matches on umpteen channels from all over the world. Good place to sell shirts and get investment. I wouldn’t wish going there on my worst enemy though. It’s a wretched place on so many levels.

  12. Canada says:

    @ Wayne

    Wishful thinking. But it would tick a lot of boxes don’t ya think?

    Spurs get the striker they’re desperate for. Makes them look like they’re stepping up a level to land talent. Save face on losing Bale.

    Utd get rid of Rooney. Pick up a marquee signing.

    Rooney gets his move to London.

    But yeah, I agree, more wishful thinking than reality.

    Correction Kuwait lost 1-0 to England in 1982…. goal scorer T. Francis. Kuwait missed soooooo many chances! Plus it was ramadan, they were fasting! LOL!

    Utter shite. Who the fuck thought that would be a good advert for a telephone. I nearly pissed myself though at the bit with Giggs and Van Persie. Quality acting!
