Vlog on the pitch — transfer deadline day

September 2, 2008

Owen Wyatt is joined by a sober-shirted Jon Bramley to discuss the deadline day transfer deals.

Will Manchester United be unstoppable now they have added Dimitar Berbatov to their line-up? Can Robinho cope with the whole rough and tumble of life in the Premier League? And speaking of which, are Manchester City the new Chelsea?

Feel free to leave your comments below, or send us a video of your own looking at this or any other issue in football. Let us know the url and if we like it we’ll host it right here.

what would you be saying about Robinho if he had signed for Chelsea for 32 million???? I doubt you’d have been so negative regarding the impact he’s going to make.

In my opinion he’ll make more of an impact at eastlands than he would have at stamford bridge where he would struggle to get games and form. At City he will come in as a player who can go out and enjoy his football. yes he will have pressure but I dont think it will be as hard for him with City than it would have been with the Ego’s at Chelsea.

I would be saying exactly the same thing as owen here. He has got “flop” written all over him. When ANY player arrives you have to look at the circumstances in which he arrives before anything esle..He has arrived in a hail storm of carnage…calling a press conference to inform how he wants to move on, then going on about how unhappy he is…bla bla bla…All he has done, is proved that he is an absolute mercenary…Give him till febuary, when it is pissing with rain and michael turner or any other thug from lower down teams are taking lumps out of him..then we can judge??!!
