Roma reject Mancini bid

And quite frankly, I'm happy about it. Why, you may ask? Well, why, if this story is to believed, would we spend £13m on guy who can't get a regular spot on his country's national squad and is basically riding the hype of a CL goal? Also, his numbers aren't that impressive, even for the superior Serie A (or maybe he wasn't tipping his ref enough?). Anyhow, we're not talking about potential here, he's 27-years-old. It's just too much money and we're not Man U or Chelsea. Smaller clubs should appreciate us for not overpaying or driving the price up for players. I'd rather just keep Kewell, have Hammill waiting in the wings (no pun intended), and use that money to get a striker.
