I'm a big fan of his, he is utter class. I think we should whack all the money we got from Milner for a bid for him, he's a year older but a far better player, plus his goal record for Wigan is very good, considering it's Wigan.

i think we'd have a massive chance of getting him this late in the window, no-one has bid for him so far and other, comparable clubs like Spurs and Man City have already bought right-wingers. bloody hell if we can get Jonas and Coloccini, and the latter especially is a far bigger name than Valencia, i think we get a player from Wigan of all places

Guest optimistic nit

Bruce rates him at 18 mill

If Milner is worth £12 million then he is worth £18 million.

thats shite reasoning, we'd be pretty damn desperate to pay 18million for valencia, although i'd love him for around 10.

I forgot how awesome he was at the World Cup and remember thinking "wow, Wigan have done really well there" when they signed him. Wasn't too long ago Man Utd were being linked with him, but I'd like to see him here as he could bring a lot to the team.

10 millions. If we look around the transfer window I think we could have done better rather easily than getting Valencia.

 

Carlos Villanueva - Loan

Gilberto Silva - £1M

Abdoulaye Faye - £2.5M

Steven Pienaar - £2.5

Olivier Kapo - £2.5M

El Hadji Diouf - ?

Marvin Emnes - £3.2M

Giovani dos Santos - £4.7M

Jonás Gutiérrez - ?M

Tal Ben Haim - £5.5M

Steed Malbranque - ?M

Peter Crouch - 9M

Aliaksandr Hleb - £11M

Samir Nasri - £12M

Sulley Muntari - £12.7M

 

I am not convinced spending £10M on Valencia is the answer. I would rather spend £5M on some scouted FM-tastic player.

 

Moreover, Spiderman can play on the right. Ok we are a bit light on the wings with Charles N'Zogbia, Spidermand and Duff as specialist wingers only. We still have Geremi who could do a decent job there.

 

We are however extremely light in central midfield. It is evident that Nicky Butt's legs are not there anymore. Either Joey Barton or Danny Guthrie will have to replace Butt as specialist DM sooner ather than later. That leaves us just 1 player available as attacking midfield.

 

I would prefer to spend that £10M on a central midfielder. I am not convinced that we are financially capable, or that it is financially sound for us to spend £10M on Valencia and another £10M on a CM.
