Carlos Sanchez reportedly having a medical at Villa early next week. He'd be a fantastic signing. Was very good for Colombia at the WC, and we've needed a DCM for the longest time

Nasri's dead right about getting booed by the arsenal fans. Its a joke when it happens to any player unless they're a hometown lad who came up through the club (Rooney, Campbell) and left for a big rival. Or if they do shit to incite the fans like Adebayor.

he is right, as if a french player gives a fuck about an english teams fans, i know i wouldn't.

although with adebayor he can been getting pelters from the arsenal fans for a good while before he did that goal celebration at city, but i know he had made a few remarks about the club when he left though, so that would explain the grief maybe.

sign of the times though, everyone's fair game these days
