Rafa Benitez – No Concerns About Keeping This Player

Ayoze Perez seems to be in big demand already this summer, with Italian clubs Napoli and AC Milan both wanting to sign him in the summer.

The latest news yesterday was that Milan were readying a £25M bid for the Spanish U21 International, and that could come as early as next week after we play our final game of the season at Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

Perez was signed from Tenerife for just 2M five years ago so if he is sold we will make a massive profit on him.

But surely we want to keep our best players these days?

Rafa seems relaxed about the whole affair and had this to say yesterday during his interviews leading up to the game at Craven Cottage tomorrow afternoon:

“It was the same last year.” “He has done well. The people around him have helped him do well.”

“When you do well at your level, the teams around you are interested in these players.”

“You cannot talk now because it is too early.”

“Ayo has done well so it is normal people will talk about him.”

“The teams at the top of the table are quite strong.”

“The teams at the bottom are also doing well.”

Fulham have won three of their last four games, and Scott Parker was appointed the permanent manager at Fulham yesterday.

So things are starting to look up for the Craven Cottage club who will try to come straight back up next season from the Championship.

We need to win this game tomorrow.

    Reeled in a made a mug.

    You really have a high opinion of yourself and Munster, two peas in a pod.

    You’re way off the mark as usual, couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo.

    Like many I’m sick of reading the shit the likes of you and Munster spout to disrupt the blog.

    It shows massive disrespect and disregard for Ed who spends a large amount of time to give us this platform so people who care about nufc can discuss all things nufc.

    You and the other morons who live to do this should hang their heads in shame, yet its water off a ducks back for a racist homophobic dick head like you.

    Karma will get a hold of you one day and if I’m lucky I’ll get to watch

    Jib, SJP as it is now may have only been there less than 20 years, but there has been a stadium there since 1892, a constant and dominant part of the city and it’s image.

    I only gave a reference to Nelson’s Column as a similarly striking and unmolested cultural icon in another great city. Its age is, largely, irrelevant, but it’s also only been there 50 years longer.

    Oh, and Charlie, thanks for the guide on the La Rochelle fans – I guess there could have been a few hanging around, but most seemed to have the same crest on their flags (and they were ALL carrying flags) – must have been quite a spectacle in the ground last night, if anyone was there.

    Just looking at the goalscoring chart up top. Is Ciaran Clark really our joint-third league goal scorer, behind Perez and Rondon?
