Bernard Mendy. Has anyone heard of him? We are in need of a right back this summer and we are linked with Lahm (who I love and so want at OT), Sagnol (the old white version of Mendy lol), Alves, Micah Richards and a few others like Garay.

Thing with Lahm is other top clubs are interested and when people like Barca come in for you (like the ronaldinhio) you never are sure if they are going to sign for us (also like mexes who wanted a starting place but Fergie could not give him 100% certainty). Then there is Alves. We all know Chlesea were very very close to sigining him and he might be a little too costly for a rb..i mean i hear things like 20m for him and i also hear he is not good defensively but just attacking so after paying 20m I would want someone who is good in both if you know what I mean..? Richards is a Man City player and signed a new contract and things at City are moving so he might not come either. So I looked at other possibilities and found Mendy.

I saw him 1st in his interntional debut match vs Brazil as a rb in that 100 years celebration world cup 98 re match of France vs Brazil and he was awsome that game. I remeber particularly his speed and when he beat Roberto Carlos on the right flank! (I will try to post you tube link if I can find it). I always wanted him since then (to join Man United) just like how I always wanted Evra and Rothen after seeing them play for Monaco in the Champions League in that season when they were finalists. He is French and we have frenchmen like Saha, Slivestre and Evra and plus he is from PSG where we got Heinze so people that are of his nationality and from his club have come to Man United so it is not going to be a new transfer adventure for us like Djemba Djemba and Kleberson was lol He is the longest serving player for Paris Saint Germain and I think is vice captain after Pauleta. He scored the winning penalty vs Lens this season in the French Cup final in the last minute so pressure is something he can handle. He did go on loan to the EPL with Bolton in 2002-2003 season making 21 apps so he is not unknown to the EPL which is better than paying millions for Brazillan Alves who has no idea what the EPL is like. I think he will be much cheaper than Lahm and Alves similar to Heinze's transfer fee. What do you people think? Another possible Neville (retirement)/Brown (contract rebel) replacement? I certainly think so. He is much better than Sagna and Brown imo and will be ideal for Man United.

lol and rio used to play for leeds and smithy was a product of their academy...solskeajr is a life long loserpool supporter and who cares? ;)

he is a carbon copy of evra just on the right side of the field...you cannot go wrong by having two evra's now can you? :D you would be lying if you said you were not impressed by that youtube vid...he out runs roberto carlos who is one of the fastest ever...and trust my word that was no one off or fluke...he did that for the whole game...well I think sagnol came on later or he came on for sagnol at half time or something like that but I know that when I watched that match it was Mendy and Zidane who stole the show for the French and was quality throughout the whole game...for me his equal to lahm and alves and I rate them both highly!

Kind of difficult to judge a player based on one clip and a short one at that, but if he's a carbon copy of Evra I wouldn't mind. : )

I hadn;t heard of Evra or Vidic at all when they arrived and look at them. I mean honestly the two of them are absolutely rock solid. The only thing to fault would be Evra's wage demands.

Mendy makes Hull move
Frenchman seals England return
http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,12875_3806098,00.html

Hull have completed the signing of French defender Bernard Mendy on a free transfer.

Mendy has inked a three-year deal at the Premier League new boys after seeing out his contract at Paris Saint Germain.

The 26-year-old worked with Tigers boss Phil Brown during a successful loan spell with Bolton in 2003 and he has admitted Brown played a big part in his decision to move to the KC Stadium.

Impressed

"The sporting project is ambitious and interesting," Mendy told L'Equipe. "I'm happy to go back to England.

"And above all I'll be meeting up again with Phil Brown, who was the assistant coach at Bolton when PSG loaned me out there. That counted a lot."

Mendy is Hull's third signing of the summer as they prepare for their first adventure in England's top flight.

I can't wait to see how he does at Hull and in the EPL. His first stint in the EPL with Bolton was quite good and I have watched him quite a fair bit in the French League and his played very well. Go to Hull on a free is an amazing deal for Hull and should be pleased.

Yeah he signed for Hull so he must not be that good...? Tevez and Mascherano signed for West Ham United at one stage so that makes them not so good players too lol
