OHMYGOD OHMYGOD OHMYGOD

Quote:
Big-spending Zenit St. Petersburg have been in negotations to acquire Manchester United winger Nani, the Russian club's general director confirmed on Thursday.

The Portugal international did not enjoy the best of starts to the new Premier League season, turning in a poor display at Everton that saw him subbed and then dropped from the next game.

"'It's true we are negotiating for Nani and [Joao] Moutinho, but Hulk and Witsel were our top priorities," The Daily Mail quoted Zenit's Maxim Mitrofanov as saying.

Holy crap Zenit might be awesome. They're a team I always love to watch and root for in the CL. It's cool to see them grab some big players and still looking for more.

Apparently ridiculous (8-10m euros/year) wage demands have scuppered the move.

I hate this guy Brick wall

Dunno if it's all that much to write home about. It's basically the FA Cup twice and the UEFA Cup once, as the Super Cup and Community Shield are glorified exhibitions. It's better than nothing of course, but you sound like Kenny Daiglish if you really try to get too excited about those kinds of side competitions.

I'd also point out... for all the flack that opposing supporters want to give Arsenal for a trophy-less seven years, we've still never come close to the gaps between winning the league that so many have had.

Prior to Roman, Chelsea was on a 51 year drought of having not hoisted the big one. United were on a 26-year drought prior to winning the PL in '93. Liverpool are currently on a 22 year drought. City's win last season broke a 44 year drought. Spurs haven't won the PL since '60, so they're rocking a lovely 52 year drought.

I'm not pointing this out to tout off Arsenal as being massively superior. We've had our gaps as well (two different 18 year droughts from '52 to '70 and '70 to '88), just that droughts happen. They're not as uncommon as some zealous supporters want to make them out to be.

Personally, I believe we should pass the hat to ensure that Nani stays with United for the rest of his natural life... and moves on to become a technical coach them at some point as well.

Theres a pretty big difference in not winning the league and not winning even a single trophy.

It's funny, for so long I've wanted Nani out of my life, but now that he was almost gone, I realized I'd miss his wasteful ways (even if his occasional moment of brilliance will probably be against City...again).

According to the official wikipedia page, you have never ousted Real Madrid.
