Anyone got a clue?
I believe he's referring to the latest gossip that Arry's been invited to Hudd's next shin-dig and is pushing for Mr Levy to provide funding for the whole squad to bring round sacks of nearly out of date M&Ms so everyone can enjoy a post kebab/burger/sausage treat.
And yes, i did use 'shin-dig' in a post. worth a bonus point i think.
Bonus point given, brilliant!
He's a nice guy so I won't do my normal shtick...
bertie bassett ????
When I read stuff like 'Arry wants Daniel to try and buy some sweets at (implied) knock down value I assume it's ageing shite with no resale value.
Damn these make me feel dumb. But I think its (M)irko Vucinic and some other (M) (I'm brilliant, I know).
Allsorts or M&Ms ?..........Sounds like Levy will go shopping for surplus players on the cheap and on the last day of the window, but where ?
He wants sweets.. planning to buy fat frank!
No, if he was going to buy Fat Frank the ITK would have used the word 'wiener'.:001_302:

you feeling better now?"
get it? Marko Marin.......M&Ms
I feel worse.
bag of bollox if thats it,im off to find some rope
I only went cryptic to wind up my bosses son guys, Thought it was easy enough though dont you think?
the cryptic that is, not the winding up
good man ryan ,still on a downer though boo hoo
I was thinking Marko Marin
I was at work but couldn't log into the site on my phone!
Is the management having some bother with lennon?
Theres been quite a bit of interest in right hand side styled players although marin plays on the left?
As long as our striker issue is sorted, i guess people like marin only improve the overall squad.
well done columbo lol
He can play both sides below average.:y4:
sorry, i misspelled your name
If he waits the entire window, and then signs only Marko Marin at the last minute, I'll be so angry I'll collapse in on myself like a neutron star.
I'm horrible at these, as I was never good with any sort of puzzle, but I always like to try.
He says sweets, and a multitude of colors. Now right away that reminds me of Skittles "Taste the Rainbow" is their slogan, so it makes some sense, and imo a bit more than M&Ms so I don't know why no one mentioned skittles but everyone was on the M&Ms bit. But seeing as the latter makes more sense due to the names we have been linked with: Mirko, Marin, Mata.
But I do not have any idea what he means by "they can be reduced to clear" (help?). Perhaps he means there are two, of different races: one white and the other dark(er).
So back to the Skittles and different colors.... surely he must mean different races? That means it isn't Marin and Mirko. But maybe he's being foolish and going with Adebayor as (E)manu(el) and the other being Marin and Vuc.
So let's assume it is those three (mirko, marin, manu) as he said "some" rather than a couple. And then the M&Ms part comes in as Marin and Mirko. He said if we wait longer "They might be reduced to clear, especially the later we get to closing time.", Manu will be swooped up by the other interested clubs (Real prob.). So if we don't make our move soon on Ade, it looks like Vuc and Marin will be the incoming targets.
I think Marko Marin is a very good player imo.....He was a little out of sorts in the second half of last season but considering he was in an awful team thats no surprise really.
I like the lad......but I don't think its what we need atm!!!
Ugh.. I feel like a moron now after reading the last post in the ITK.
I don't know why Bremen finished so poorly. So many big names there: Weise, Fritz, Hunt, Proedl, Kroos, Mertesacker, Pizarro, and Marin. But I concur with you that we do not need him, especially for 20 million!?!?! We have VDV for that spot, and Bale/Lennon who are both better players imo, and even so if Marin is a slightly better player than Lennon, it would be stupid to have Lennon benched.
I think a lot of people on here are so negative, you have your mind set on some players and wont let go. Marin would be a great option, you could play him from the right and would be the much needed competion for Lennon. Cos Lets face it Lennon aint been great recently! Also he Provides cover for bale and VDV, good signing all round really. Saying that i dont think we are looking at him and dont expect to see him next season.
Look, most of us only saw Marin play that one game where he was really good against us in the CL. In that game he looked like a world-class signing, I'll admit it.
So how come he was named in the Bundesliga Worst 11 and he basically only had 3 or 4 good games the rest of the season?
Every dog has its day, Jenas and GDS look world-class sometimes too. But we can't afford to gamble on him like that, and there are sooo many better options.
Bingo.... I've talk ad nauseum about this kid, thanks for doing the leg work.
Simple he's not worth ANYWHERE near £20m, I would take Eriksen over him any day.
potentially marin is amazing. He is worth around 13m right now. I think 13m£ would be enough to seal a marin deal with bremen because he has only 2 years left of his contract.
I watched him in the pre season bit and listend to what the coach has to say. Marin was with light and with a lot of shadow as well where he disappeard for like 60 minutes . But then he had some dribblings and did good stuff and was the best player of bremen in the pre season imo.
Apparently the coach plans with him as the main men behind the strikers depending if he goes for 2 strikers or for 1. If he goes for a 2 striker tactic marin will move to left wing.
Sometimes I just feel marin has the power to play only 60-70 minutes.
Marin would be someone you would love to have when bale or lennon ran their heart of after 70 minutes and you need fresh legs and if marin would come in I guess there is nobody better in the bundesliga to dribble for the last 30 minutes.
He has been pretty dangerous coming off the bench.
In his last season he had a lot of shadow! But the problem was the bremen was also very horrible last season. They struggled with their defence a lot.
Now they signed Wolf from nürnberg and some greece player of mc milan which will make them much stronger in the back.
Having bought lukas schmitz for the left back position will make their left side stronger as well which was their weakest link last season.
Marin is a type of guy who can have 2 amazing games and then disappear for the next 10.
But we do not need to forget that he is only 22 years old.
the bundesliga has a lot of players with a huge potential. Marin is not the only one.
However if we see the back of bale. Marin could be someone stepping in in 2 years if he can show what he can do for a longer period and not only 1 or 2 games and then go missing.
However if he did that then Bayern would try to sign him.
Some great points there Thugz.
