    Who's first team? Certainly not Arsenal's. He's never been near the first team squad. Not sure who your thinking of.

    I thought Kennedy killed Kennedy ala Red Dwarf

    I really hope this dealis true(even though its not)

    My imaginiation is getting carried away with the thoughts of a possible attack of

    Freddie/Hleb Gilberto Baptista Reyes

    Torres Henry

    Bench Fab, Yaya, RVP

    oh please god let it all be true.

    One of the provisions on gaining Spanish nationailty is actually staying in Spain. It's intended for people who live and work there, not for people to get a free ticket into the EU. Baptista signing for Arsenal, and perhaps even a declared intent to do so, could have seriously jeapordised his application, so actually, I wouldn't be surprised if this indeed was kept a secet.

    Still, I don't believe there IS any kind of deal, at this stage...

    Asa, you took the words right out of my my keyboard I guess. The whole idea of getting a Spanish Nationality is LIVING and WORKING and Spain. If we bought him and loaned him to Real, he wouldn't really be considered as working in Spain.

    I'll be very happy if the swap deal will occur. Finally a replacement for Vieira and Clich can take Cole's place

    Actually the mafia killed Kennedy, they got the green light from the CIA though. The mob got JFK a lot of votes but when he was in office he screwed them over with his new legislation.

    Slightly off topic? :wink:

    Nah, the mafia didn't have the power to do it, I'm sure of it..

    We were willing to offer Baptista a big pay-check if he came to us, we offered more money fpr the club aswell. So I do think Wenger really wanted him, we would he want the passport then?. Isn'tr the only foreign (outside EU) in our squad Kolo now so we did have room for him, what is the limit now anyway?

    What power do you need to kill one man?
    You give a guy a gun and tell him to aim at the guy who is waving to the crowd all the time :wink:

    they dont have the power to change the route, remove the secret service, etc

    They would if working with the CIA. Besides, those guards can be bought. If members of the senate can be bought, so can the security service.

    I would argue that it is far easier to buy a Senator than multiple Secret Service officers.

    Also, I forgot to reiterate...dump Cole and get Baptista!!!

    interesting kennedy stuff, i guess.

    you guys are right, it obviously wouldnt help his case if he belonged to arsenal, but i think it would depend on the language of the law. if he lived in spain and played for a spanish side that paid his wages, that might be enough. its not that different from someone who works at a factory in spain thats owned by a foreign corporation. anyway, none of us are solicitors familiar with spanish immigration law, so at the end of the day, were just making stuff up.

    At the end of the day, the signs are there. Ballack stalling and waiting to move to Real Madrid (although its possible that he might be replacing a certain Z. Zidane) Baptista will be benched. Cole only signs a one year extension which was just a stop gap. RM need a replacement for Carlos, and they only buy the best. Cole is the best, and they are going to bid for him. We want Baptista, and will ask for him in exchange. They'll notice that he's about to be benched and send him on his way.

    Its also important to note that he wanted to stay in Spain for other reasons, he needed to make sure he made the World Cup, and had he moved to UK and done a Veron, he might not have done that, so he wanted to move elsewhere in Spain, aside from that there is extensive discussion above re: nationality issues which I don't need to go into.

    Definitely on the cards, along with new striker Torres/Kuyt makes me tingle all over.

    Has anybody thought of the down side to this, which is we LOSE ASHLEY COLE!? Yes the guy has been a grade A nob, and yes Clichy is very good, but Ashley is the best, and quite frankly if you have the best at your club, you want to make sure he stays there. It is quite possible that Baptista, who has already been benched and off form this season could look for a move anyway. This would mean we wouldn't have to get rid of Cole. Lets just hope this supposed tansfer kitty is not just a load of newspaper bollocks.
