    Was watching a bit of football earlier and it sounded as though the AC MILAN keeper was called Kalac! Is he the same keeper that we paid £740,000 from Leicester but never played for us?

    Perhaps Mcghee could pick a player after all!

    Aye, 'tis the same bloke we signed. He's been playing for them for a while now, seem to remember seeing him playing for them in the Champions League group stages the year Liverpool won it.

    Only tends to play when the other keeper (Dida?) is injured though.

    Dida has been injured so Kalac has been playing. I don't think he's played that badly. Made some good saves to be fair. He got injured last week though, thankfully just as Dida was regaining fitness.

    We didn't pay £740,000 for him. We were ordered, by the FA I believe, to pay Leicester £250,000 for him as compensation as we could not get a work permit for him. What a farce by McGhee.

    I've always felt McGhee was hard done by in that instance. The deal was lways stated as 'subject to Kalac getting a work permit'. Surely its the job of the lawyers drawing up the contract to make sure thats included in there !
     
  6. Spider was in the Australia World Cup squad last year. He played one game, made a couple of howlers that cost them the game and didn't get on the field again. He played in a friendly international a couple of months ago where he (and a fair number of other socceroos) retired from international football. He's been at AC for a few years and has been reserve keeper pretty much all that time. He seems pretty happy to be picking up his money and playing three or four times a season. I expect when his contract is up he'll return to Australia and look to play for an A league side until he reitres from competitive football altogether.
    Throughout his career he's been unpredictable. He'll make a blinding save then let an easy one through his hands and into the net. A bit like a poor man's David James (but bigger - Spider is a monster).
