Think around 50mil.
Hummels is one of the best CBs in the world. And he is still really young.

Having ManU as my favorite team we have a similar need for CBs with Ferdinand and Vidic getting old and injury prone. Hence I've been following some interesting CBs myself these past few years. I really hoped we'd snatch Varane, but Madrid took him.

I always thought Hummels was overrated, that's why I didn't want him before. Even tho I love him as a player but seeing Pique decline and Puyol aging/injured, Hummels is a must. He also has great technically and great passing ability which is a must in Barca. I wouldn't mind paying top dollar for him now.

I think Silva, Vidic, Puyol, and Ramos are pretty overrated.
Vidic is but the rest are not, Even tho I hate his guts Ramos is a world class player and probably Spain's best defender right now. Puyol is aging but he's still capable.

I am hoping for Arsenal losses. Sadly losing will make them a better team in the long haul.

Yeah I think he will suit a team like Barca where they have so much possession that he doesnt have to do much defending and his ball playing skills can be shown off. Another option is someone like Luiz from chelsea (although his defending can be comical at times). I think Hummels might struggle at first if he were at a team like Chelsea or Man City that dont keep the ball as much and rely on a solid defense for lots of 1-0 2-1 wins. Hes a smart player though and I think he'd get there.

It didn't work in Hockey it's not going to work in football. Cheer for you team SEPH and hope for the best.

So, I think I've settled on a username either MagicianHishon or MichuPichu. I really like both TBH.

@AdamCalderHero

Luiz is a train wreck defensively, I would cry if that's the guy Barca get.

Hes gotten better recently and Barcas system can flatter any defender but yeah he really shouldn't be relied on as a starting centre back on any champions league team.

I was hoping the curse is finally broken. Maybe I should just go with the Hishon one, his luck can't get any worse right?

1000 times agreed.

Watch Man U or Chelsea get him and you can join the Arsenal crowd!

I haven't watched the last 4 games besides against Tottenham yesterday, so I can't really tell you. I can tell you that he has been better than Giroud, Gervinho, and Podolski (some games).

Giroud: I think he's still getting adjusted to EPL play, but man he is a streaky striker and there are about 7 goals he should've scored that would've made us be in at least 3rd place. He's worth keeping, but not as the main striker.

Gervinho: Love the guy when he's on his game, but that is very little. He has fantastic pace and dribbling skills, but doesn't do much with it except getting corners and his shooting accuracy is worst than Rockies love life. I would like him sold and bring in a young and more potential player like Gotze.

Podolski: He's played great for the most part, but is suffering from the same problem of the other strikers, inconsistency. He either shows up for games and looks threating out there or gets subbed off with nothing to show for it. Only good thing is he has had more good games than bad ones.

I'm a poor college student so very tempted to spend $760 on a 1080p 600hz, 50" Plasma TV guys, help keep me from making the plunge... oh, and it's 3D too, even though i and the rest of the world could care less how many dimensions it displays.

Dont waste your money on a 3D TV , get a regular 1080p HD TV, it will a lot be less expensive . I'm still not sold on the 3D and i'm not sure it's there to stay for the long run .

Agreed. Until the technology for glasses-free 3D gets to the larger screen sizes becomes mainstream, it isn't worth it.

Not sure where you live Lonewolfe...

...but I was told not to get plasma in high altitude, as they can get bubble sin them, and are not covered under warranty.

LED, 1090, 120 hz (you said 600 hz? was that a typo?)

Agree with Frenchy that the 3D is probably a fad and won't be around long.

You're pretty old though so what you like and what I like is probably pretty different.

Do you like Game of Thrones? Spartacus? It's along those lines, but a lot lower budget since it's on History channel.

Season 1, I hope.

I love that show. I own Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD.
I've also read all 5 books. There will be 7 books total, eventually. George RR Martin takes his good time getting the books out.

Agreed with my french friend 3rd tv's arent worth it.

I hate those shows, I watched the whole 1st season of spartcus and honestly its like watching ******* ****. I was in the middle if the first episode in season 2 wheb the EJ trade broke out and stopped watching lol. To be fair tho I never seen game of thrones but I heard they're similar.

You soccer fans. Don't judge a show till you've seen it, especially if its GOT

Show is going to be epic in 27 days
