    Coutinho

    Reports from Spain say we are in talks to sign him.

    What has happened to him since he left Liverpool,Barcelona don't want him and after a spell at Bayern they don't want to take up the option of signing him either.

    If the reports of us trying to sign him were true could it be a big mistake.He could return to his brilliant best but also be an expensive flop.

    But he's also a statment of intent.

    Which I think they will want to do and that statment of intent signing will end up being a play in his ilk that could easily be an expensive flop but at the same time, lays down a marker.

    someone on the other thread mentioned that the odds on him joining NUFC droped significantly one day.
    May be there is really something in it.

    Barcelona and Bayern are big clubs, so if they don't want a player doesn't mean he is bad.
    Also, I think he and Messi share the same area on the pitch, so he wasn't a replacement for Neymar. As for Bayern - can't remember such type of a player in Munich at all, they seem just not to play that way.

    Anyway, I'm not against any "has-beens" as long as they have a point to prove and do want to do it. And the fee is fair. But from the other hand, I can't help myself, but think of a poor old Michael Owen who wasn't interested at all and always thought of himself being bigger than NUFC.

    But if the deal goes through we've been linked with Motherwell's second choice 'keeper.

    And that's not even a joke-we have been.

    And that's the magnitude of the Sliding Doors moment we're at....worldwide exposure, a top manager,world-class players, full stadiums, realistic chances at trophies, investment in the local area......or Steve Bruce, Motherwell's reserve 'keeper, empty seats, decaying stadium, shit football, no hope of anything under Ashley.

    That's the reality of the situation.

    Well described there. I imagine most fans are feeling like that at the moment.

    It's as big as that.
