Ole in 96 (think it was 96 hmm). Spurs wanted him for 5.5 million. We accepted it. He rejected it. The rests history. If you are a kid it's no different. If your not confident to stick to your guns and show people wrong, this isn't the club for you anyway. It comes down to the player.
Obvoiusly you'll find more loyality 9/10 with English player though it comes down to lots of things. I doubt anyone thought Eckersley would sod off the way he did for regular football, which incidently he's not had yet. If Tom impressed for a premier league club, he'd use that to break into United. I think he's united through and through like Ole was. I suppose people will be thinking of Simpson but that's an example of someone better coming in ie rafael.
That's why Gibson for example needs to improve before someone takes his place
