Why didn't Chelsea buy five less AMs and use the money to get Higuain :facepalm:

Anyway, i said he was a CL flop for madrid, you cant dispute that. Not that he would flop his whole career in CL, not the same.
At that point in time it did look like Napoli overpaid by a bit which Juventus wouldntve done so i was just supporting the board's moves since it was difficult for Juve to spend big money without having to sell any of their key players.

But that doesnt matter now obviously since he's giving very good return on investments.

Higuain is as safe an investment as you can get in today's centre forward market. Anyone who doubted him either;

a) Didn't watch him that much.

or

b) Had an agenda.

He's a great CF I'd give anything to get him back with us.

Its not about doubting him.I knew he had the quality and would be a success in a team where he will be focal point which he is at Napoli.

I just didnt believe he is 40m worthy player but i guess you gotta pay up if you want quality which Napoli did.

In today's market, 40 is a fair price for him.

He was called a "CL Flop" numerous times by people in your section. 3 CL goals and 1 assist in 3 games later... Nevermind that you ended up signing a "CL Flop" anyway.

I'm not gonna lie, I can't recall any Real Madrid fan in the section saying Higuain wasn't worth that price. Only poster I could see writing that would be Mr. Possession MT. But make no mistake, Higuain CL record has been quite poor for someone of his outstanding abilities (to which I regret the club let go).

I'm glad he is starting to show his worth in UCL a bit and hope it continues...

I'm sure I have bunches I don't remember. The most flagrant of recent times was saying Borini would end up being the better player (over Sturridge) and I think I said once he got over his injuries he would start for Liverpool.

Well, on the right. We're in desperate need for a CB, LB and winger atm. Look's like Zapata, Mata and Clichy. cheers

(Wickham + Adam for depth weeeeeeeeeeee)

I love NESV :king:
Oh god.

The three players which could have been all turned out to be back-ups for Coates, Downing and Enrique.

Enrique's fine but the other two. :X

Fantastic purchase if you get him.

Was a rock at back for Udinese and was one of their most important players and without him, they would never have qualified to the Champions League. He is also versatile, can play as a RB when needed. You can check out his performance in the Copa America, plays for Colombia.

I said multiple times that i'd take Higgy at Juve. For the right price.

I also said that I'd prefer Tevez + 30M for more depth signings (Such as Ogbonna) to Higuain and nobody else. Also, I said Higuain would render Llorentes transfer useless because they would probably not be compatible. And i'm hardly eating humble pie so far am I?

Llorente is proving to be clutch in the CL and Tevez is mopping up in the league.

We're not setting ourselves a 80M budget, so spending 100% of your budget on one player is stupid.

Am I ever wrong ffs?

But seriously, the amount of things I've gotten right is ridiculous. Costa being better than Fluke-cao, Ramsey, Neymar (next Robinho rofl, Sturridge, Ramos, Ronaldo (when he was hated), Arsenal's title challenge this season, Cisse, Ba,Damiao being a scrub, Mourinho to Chelsea, Hazard to Chelsea, Negredo > Soldado, Ramires raping Barca etc

These are things no one else could have foreseen ffs.
