Nigel Reo-Coker Linked To Spurs Move!

Nigel Reo-Coker Linked To Spurs Move!

Ha, funny rumour of the day time!

According to the Daily Express Spurs might sell Didier Zokora to former boss, now in charge at Real Madrid surprisingly, Juande Ramos.

Why does that interest us you all say?

The replacement according to the red top and bastion of all things football (cough cough) say that non other than Nigel Hokey-Cokey is being lined up as a replacement.

Eh?

According to the report NRC isn't particularly happy at Villa having been played out of position for most of his tenure at Villa following his high price transfer from West Ham to Villa in July 2007 (£8.5million).

Apparently 'Appy 'Arry, who loves Villa, sees Reo-Coker as the ideal replacement and will bin in January with the cash received from Real Madrid.

Forum member Villan57 aside, would you miss NRC or would you cash in on the young midfielder, right back, winger... sorry, remind me, where does he play again?!

We can't lose our cokey, but I'd sell him to the **** (part 2) if they offered 20m.

Coke head is ****! I doubt any of you Villa fans would care too much about him leaveing if you knew anything about football. I am more worried about us losing Zokora who has looked the part since arry' has been in charge.

I like Reo-Coker even if he is a former Spammer. I think he could do a decent job for us breaking up play and playing the simple ball to Modric and co. Lets put it this way I think Re-Coker offers a lot more on the pitch than Zokora. So if Madrid are actulay interested (which i cant believe) we could get enough out of them to pay for Coker without going into any of our funds.

This wouldnt surpise me just when i am starting to think MON had a decent sized squad (barring another striker) that he would sell one of our better back up players. Doubt he would replace him either.

he may not be able to spray 50 yard passes around the park or 20 yard passes for that matter but he workes his ass off for us and generally is one of our better players when he plays, considering he pretty much shut down ronaldo while being played out of position says alot about the man. i think he is a valueable member of our squad and unless spurs wanted to pay stupid money we would be wise to keep him....although im sure it all B/S anyway

I cant say that this excites me, Reo-coker to Spurs. Even if Zakora does go (unlikely) to Real Madrid the man us Spuds need to fufil that coveted role as DCM is Diarra of Pompey. We wanted him a little while back but the Goners never sell directly to Spurs. Diarras Harry's man and his all round game is sound as opposed to Zakora who has never made a telling pass in a Spurs shirt let alone look like troubling the onion bag(I know its not his job!). So i think Villa fans shouldn't be too worried about this one , tho I can see the Barry saga rearing its ugly head again for you. Good luck Villa in pipping the Arse for 4th....

I'll drive him to London myself, but I think we should play hard ball on the price, at least get our money back.
