Alex Song has arrived!



After a few weeks of rumours and some Guillem Balague "exclusives" (at least I'm guessing so, he's blocked me so who knows), Alex Song has signed for the next five years, for a fee of 19m Euros.

Welcome to Barça!

So, what do we think? Good transfer? Unnecessary? Do we need him? For me, I've yet to be convinced that he's a worthwhile addition to the squad. I hope he does great and fits in well, but I don't feel excited at all about the transfer. Here's hoping I'm proved wrong...

Your thoughts are basically mine. I can't really imagine that he'll add anything to the team except for ridiculous hair... I was waaaaay more excited about Alba, BUT you never know, he can turn out to be great :) Which I hope he will :) Anyways, welcome to the club!

I don't really care much about this transfer since he is basicly Keita's replacement and that means that he will spend 80% of his time on the bench. on the other hand 19 mil for a bench warmer sound scandalous. That is my only problem.

I really didn't know anything about him before the transfer rumors started, but I just watched a video on Total Barca, and I would say that he moves very fluidly and seems to have good ball control in addition to being tall. I was much more excited about Alba too after watching him in the Euros, but on the other hand, we do need cover for Busi when he's tired or if he gets injured, so I can see the logic here.

yeah...on the downside, i've heard that he loses the ball a lot and tends to leave huge gaps in the midfield. i'll reserve judgement until i see him actually play for us though. i still think the money should have been put towards a good CB but rotation is always good. something we didn't do enough last season...well, mainly because we couldn't :p

I think it will be interesting to see how he fares in Barca, i'm kinda excite for him after watching some videos of him in action.
(I am VERY excite for Jordi Alba though.)
