The dream is over.
I think the only thing that has to be done tonight is the deal between the two clubs and the player, im sure it goes through 'subject to medical'Just out of interest, if he was still coming, would he HAVE to have a medical first and if so where and who would do it and isn't it too late for that now anyway?
I think we'll be okay in the league, but in terms of Europe it will be more difficult. Possibly playing Barca or Real, you need something a bit extra special to come up against those types of teams.I can guarantee we wouldn't have gone into today pinning all our hopes on Sneijder. If nobody comes in it means that SAF didn't deem anyone else suitable at this moment in time.
I have major reservations about the strength of our midfield for the full season, but am happy to be proven wrong.
at this post for so many reasonsWell - I was hopeful. My sources at OT were hopeful osmething could happen but they did say that it was a difficult one back in June.
I think it's a shame. I'm sure we'll buy another midfield player in the January transfer window. I think that is the end of the Sneijder rumours for good.
Reasons: he'll have played in CL so no good for us in January
Next year he'll be 1 year older which is not as good for us.
We'll have identified a younger player who is also industrious and can play the playmaker role - Ganso perhaps, or someone else.
I don't think we needed him for the league, but he would have completed us in Europe.
I accept he's not coming.
Never mind. Onwards and upwards. At 11.01pm this thread can be closed!
It was said Tongue in cheek mate. Sneijder would have been a fantastic addition to our squad.Here we go again.
