    Steve Archibald....." We'll take more care of you.... arch....I....Bald" , so unless he's the guys agent, how could he offer him, or was it just a recommendation..... He oes look good and some of his goals last night were awesome, could you imagine Bale playing with him, and Not in Germany, it old be awesome

    When he was playing in Poland, he wasn't the player he is now. He was outstanding player in Polish league, but it was Dortmund and Klopp who improved him that much. Three years ago he wasn't good enough for us, and I doubt that Harry would manage to improve him as much as Klopp did.

    Have to agree. 3 years ago he was a decent player. Nothing like he is now. I think that if he went to any other club he wouldn't be the same player.

The only tube I use takes me to clapham common, besides he is far too young & weve already got Craaaachy who's triffic, ive also got a fair whiff of getting in on Louis Saha who would fit the run around a bit style Im using"

    What these articles fail to mention are the thousands of absolute duds we have passed on over the years.

    I agree, he fits the Dortmund system and loves being the star man at the club. I reckon he'd flop if he ended up at Real Madrid

    Doesn't surprise me really, i'm sure there are loads of players we were 'offered' in the past who have gone on to achieve great things. That's just how football works really.

    eh, I think Harry could of handled it a bit better. He didn't practice FKs for instance, and look how good Gareth is at that.
    Bale was always destined to be great, I don't think Harry had anything to do with his progress as a player.
    Look how much hes developed under AVB

    except for putting him in when benny was injured, no. I feel like if harry had his way he would have sold him to juve 3-4 winters ago just before he blossomed. man... that would he been a real kick in the nuts to see him go there and light the world (maybe) there.

    edit: just playing devil's advocate though :001_302:

    To be serious, Archibald has to give us full list of players he offered to us, not only Lewandowski and after that we'll check...
    I seem to remember he offered Lew to many teams in Spain as Sporting de Gijón, Zaragoza...and Barça too...

    Oh good, I'm glad this thread got dragged up after 2 years. It's still just as irrelevant now!
