  1. Of those Brahimi is a quality winger, Balotelli is the only striker worth having imho.

  2. really these should be looking up nursing homes

  3. Brahimi but only on a free.

  4. Hmm Annie and Balotelli up front would produce fireworks for sure.. not sure whether that would be lots of goals or lots of sulks and flurries of punches… entertaining either way..

  5. Simin says it perfectly why are you even talking about these players only because thier cheap and old . Maybe you should ask silly if you can join the board as his accountant ?

  6. Balotelli with Arnie my God are you mad …balotelli is a liability ..and lazy why on earth would you want someone like that in the club

  7. Not any of them fit the “world class players”tag that we were promised IMO…

    • Well – in their day I’d have been delighted to have Robben or Ribery: they were world class. But yeh, too old now excpt like Zaba as a stop gap. We need to be building a team with continuity and that means youth. Ballotelli? Jeez! too high maintenance :-).
