    So presence now means that the opposition knows he's on the pitch? Erm okay.

    Diaby might have power, but when he uses it every 20th game it's as pointless as nipples on a coat.

    Yeah, Diaby only offers presence on the field in the sense that he's moving across a lot of space when he embarks on his many pointless dribbling raids. Where it truly matters, though, in tight spaces and pressured situations, you wouldn't even know he's on the field. That's the main difference between him and Denilson/Song. Presence - distribution and speed of thought apart - is the main thing he need to offer more of.

    Sign VDV and we could have a proper squad again...Rosicky, Nasri, Denilson make for a fearsome bench.

    Him and Hangeland before the close of the window would make me very happy. Them plus Chamakah or a DM would make me lose my mind.

    I just don't see any room for another attacking midfielder and feel this won't happen,Its more bull from the tabloids.

    I think we need another attacker but we also need a defensive minded power player like song. WHen he goes africa we are screwed

    Now if only him and rosicky could synchronize their injuries to be far apart So we never have them both in the same team, that would be ace.

    Heck they can share the same squad number and I don't think they will ever clash.

    Agree with this. Song is probably the only player for whom we don't have any considerable back-up.

    He's a very good player, but he's not the type of midfielder we need. Also with the health issues currently surrounding his wife, he may not be fully focused on football.

    Dont think "team spirit" extends to such affairs

    hehe dirty mind pat ;)

    Heard his wife has breast cancer so that kind of complicates things. Wouldn't mind him here for £6mill though, would be a great bit of business. Sounds too good to be true though so I'm pretty sure it ain't gonna happen :)

    Why are folks surprised by the price tag? Hamburg bought him for like 4m and Real for around 8m if memory serves me correctly. Its not like he's done anything brilliant at Madrid to drive his price up.

    Both picked him up when his contract was about to run up unless I'm mistaken and I don't think that is the case here.

    Can't be bothered to go into Diabys strenth, I defend him enough in his topic! Viking look for a definition of pressence pal. VDV is not coming people.

    If you seriously believe presence is just being on the pitch (which is basically what you claim in the part I made bold), then it's probably you who should look it up.

    Presence for me is the feeling that someone/something is there. In football terms I relate pressence to involvement in the game. For me Diaby is never quiet, you always know Diaby is playing and so do opponents. In his bad games he is innefective, a negatibve influence on the team and will frustrate but will still be on the ball and attempting to penetrate the opposition half. When Diaby is having a good game he is equally as involved but will make better decisions - he is always involved. A player such as Denilson or even Sagna do not have pressence as they can quietly go about their business. I'm guessing you thought I meant he has physical pressence which he does also but like a Vidic, essien or Drogba.

    The only players I see as having presence in our squad are TV, Song, Diaby, Cesc, Arshavin and Eduardo. Anyway I want diaby and VDV here.

    I don't think I'll ever agree with any of that nonsense, sorry mate :)

    She'd be a big hit in the stands too. But I don't think "team spirit" extends that far either. :(

    Although, I'd pity the guy getting sloppy seconds at number 2 let alone the guy at 60,000! :p :shock:
