DiCanio's scissor-volley from Sinclair's cross. Mighty.

That was immense!

I've always wanted to try Valmeinier but never got the chance. Maybe next year as we are doing a cheap and cheerful week in Borovets again this year! Enjoy yours!

It's good if a little small, although there's easy access to the adjacent Valley where they have upgraded some lifts recently + there's several other resorts nearby.

Snow's generally quite reliable - last season best I've ever seen.

The resort is v.quiet though & mostly French; only a couple of bars & handful of restaurants, decent value though (as is the ski pass).

I've never been skiing in Eastern Europe - ought to really.

It was the same season I think, or maybe the season before, but the goal got lost in time. Di Canio takes a corner and lobs it to the edge of the box on the corner of the box nearest to him, Cole controls it on his knee with a keepie uppie before lobbing it to the back post, Sinclair goes horizontal about 5 feet off the ground with a scissor kick into the far corner. Astonishingly good goal - think it was against Derby or similar...will go see if I can find it!

Quality build up & finish. We had some players back then.

Apparently West ham have already rejected the bid. Cannot see them selling now and leaving us 20 days to find a replacement, unless a stupid offer north of £75m comes in from some wealthy club. Even then why would he want to trot off to China to play in an inferior league when he could get paid £100k+ at a champions league team, surely Chelsea/Serie A or similar would throw silly money at him.

I don't think he is in the Payet camp at all, he still has that passion for the team that Payet didn't have, can see him leaving in the summer but not in January...

Statement just read out on Talksport from Arnie's brother/agent - apparently he's desperate to play in china...

Still think this is bks & someone's playing the as it all has shades of #27.

Counter offer accepting £75m, full payment in 24 hours & by all means fk off.

Club needs to stand strong against this crap & hope after the last nonsense they do.

Why would Arnie suggest that when he had CL clubs and top 4 potential across Europe wanting in on him not so long ago. China is not an easy place to live, the quality of football is dire, he will get no exposure to top level European football. Players only go there who are on the slide, have no ambition, care more about the money than their own football...
