Morning sports fans. It’s sunny, I’m on a train to Wakefield, life couldn’t be better!
Well, it could be, Robin could sign a contract, the papers could stop talking about these irritating showdown meetings we’re having with all of our players and we could go out and spend some money to bolster our set up.
In the papers, Fergie has been speaking to friends. I know, Fergie has friends. Anyway, he’s been telling them Robin is joining United this season.
He better not be. Seriously, that would be shameful if we sold him to United. City I can deal with for some reason, perhaps because of their lack of class and history. United though? Our arch rivals over the last 20 years! The thought makes me feel queezy.
I could understand the move from a neutral point of view. Great club, great history with a manager who knows the game. However, bending over to a team you are trying to topple at the sustainable business model would be a step too far. Surely the money isn’t important enough for us to sell to them?
Unless of course we brought in Llorente off the back of the sale? Even then it would kill me…
There were plenty of destabilising rumours about Nasri going to United last year that failed to amount to a bid, so we’ll see.
There’s not much else on today, so I’ll leave you to chew on this question…

Is there any situation that would make the departure of Robin to United acceptable?
