We can all understand why PDC has accepted the offers put forth by Dinamo Moscow for Maniche, Seitaridis & Nuno this transfer window since it is more then obvious the Russian club overpaid for the players. Although I will admit that Costinha for $4 Million euros was a great price also, I believe that it may be the one to come back and bite us in the butt. It looked for a while that we were going to land a younger more physical Fernando Meira to replace Costinha but that didn't work out. So were now going in to the season without a replacement for Costinha. Don't get me wrong I like Bruno Alves a lot more then most people who visit this site do but i don't think he is a Costinha yet. Neither is (and looks like never will be) Raul Meireles. I still don't belive the hype made up for Sandro, and for those who want to see Ibson there, I'd rather see him playing Maniche's old roll. If Faith starts on the right side at the back then Bosingwa is another option. Either way, I'll admit that at times Costinha started to look like his best years were behind him, but I feel he was still a solid defensive midfielder with a lot of leadership. Let's not forget he got 6 goals last year to. Hopefully someone steps up in that role and over achieves.
