'Win or I'll cave your ****ing skulls in'

Yeah, that would certainly influence me.
Had a brief word with him on a train back to London, he was going back home via Eurostar after a home game, seemed a nice bloke, but not the sort of person you would challenge to an arm-wrestling contest.

I'm expecting this thread to be filled with Mickey's misfits.

Personally I think that Albrighton is a great example of how the rule should be used. Supposedly Villa were refusing to give him £30k a week - he wanted to stay and still supports them. They wouldn't budge and we picked him up. He's played in the PL every season since, won the PL, made the quarter finals of the Champions League and doesn't look like he's going anywhere anytime soon.
MOTD 2 did a good feature on Albrighton's influence on our win at Spurs. Nice to see him being recognised by some of the national pundits, who were also full of praise for Justin.

This is from the Times today:

There have been few free signings who have generated as much value as Albrighton, few players who actually deserve more headlines, although he is not the type to worry about them. Albrighton is so effective. He cut the ball back to Barnes, who had raced into the box unmarked, but missed.
