. . . is free to go, says Nixon, but perhaps understandably doesn't seem to want to give up his £20,000 a week.

£1 million a year.

For Riga.

Wonder what Sir Nut has to say about that.

They're just showing their appreciation for the Latvian capital.

Riga is great. We should bring back Andranik and play them both, every game, because they're dead fast. 8)

Riga played in Spain you know.

A simple football formula:


<Speed>
________x_________________________
|
|Black + Played in Spain

-Divided by dreadlocks-

= Good Player

The same formula where 'Played in Spain' factor is replaced by a mere 'Played in English lower league' factor, of course returns a solution of 'Not as good as Riga' every time.

we have a 24 man squad why not just include him even if he is crap, just if we get desperate or have a full team come down with the shits!!

My guess is to leave a spot open just in case we can get a good midfielder who becomes a free agent!
