As for Carrick, I do think £18m is a lot more than he's worth but I'm not surprised about Nistelrooy's selling price. It was just about right value after all the time he played for United and scored those goals. We do need a specialist striker but I'm not too concerned about our midfield anymore.
Nope, Vieira hasn't signed for anyone as of yet. He is defo leaving Juve, and either heading to United or Inter Milan.
I too think Carrick was too pricey but I hope he shows his worthiness. He has been given the legendary number 16 shirt, so big things are expected of him. Here are some stats for Carrick:
CARRICK STATS 2005/6
Crosses: 231 in 35 games - 133 more than any other Spurs player
Passes: 1,938 - nearly 600 more than anyone else at Tottenham
Assists: Six - joint top (with Mido)
