When you’re a kid and you’re acting up and your parents tell you they’ll make you live at the local weirdos house on a fulltime basis if you don’t behave…
When they catch you smoking and make you chain 20 to teach you a lesson…
When you bitch about Olivier Giroud on Twitter and you need to be learned…
OK MR MARK GONNELLA WE HAVE SEEN HELL AND WE DON’T LIKE IT!
Troy Deeney for £20m. Imagine.
… could everyone, please, please, please stop calling for a new striker. We’ve learned our lesson and we’ll love Theo, Giroud, Campbell and WELBZ forever more.
Hell, I’m so scared about that backpage I’m quite happy to accept Serge Gnabry returning as a ‘like a new signing’ moment!
David Woods. I hope no one is talking to you at Daily Star Towers and I hope there’s been an intervention of some sorts…
‘David, put your keyboard down and walk this way, everything is going to be ok. Shhhh…’
There’s talk that Matty Debuchy might be allowed to exit the club this window.
Now, for me, this story stinks. He comes in on £90k a week. Plays a few games, does well, breaks. Then we pay the bill. Then he comes back again, plays some games, breaks. We again foot the bill. Then he comes back the third time and he’s lost his place. He has to accept his role as 2nd choice… but no, he wants games and he wants to leave… and we’re possibly going to let him leave at the expense of our title push?
What’s that all about? You pay those great whack fees so you have a squad. If you can’t break into the squad, then you fight. If we don’t have back up, well, that’s your tough shit and that’s the way football operates.
The idea that Chambers could be our backup fills me with absolute dread. He’s a long way off being the player Debuchy is and it’s not an acceptable back up if we’re going to be ruthless about winning the title.
Final piece today, apparently our new Egyptian midfielder is going to land today. The medical is sorted and he’s good to go. Still find it a bit strange we signed someone from a slow league and we expect him to come in and do a job. I mean, we thought that with Gabriel, a year on and he’s still not getting games.
We’ll see though. 40 caps for Egypt is pretty good going and he seems highly rated when you read what the Swiss fans say about him. Good thing here is this… the deal was done early.
Who said transfers weren’t like buying loaves of high stamina bread from Tesco?
Right, that’s it for today… see you tomorrow!
