Morning party people, how’s life treating you? Good? Well, I’d hope so, you deserve it. It’s supposed to be 17 degrees today. Mega weather.
Anyway, what are we going to talk about? My hangover? No way, you had a 730 post yesterday, you can’t complain. We can instead talk about the insinuation that I was back tracking on our summer of expenditure theme yesterday. What I penned yesterday wasn’t penned based on any club insight. I just had a look at Europe and highlighted that there aren’t many mega strikers about. You can’t buy what isn’t there.
That was just strikers as well. Cesc is available along with plenty of other big names. There’s every chance we could sign Ashley Williams… but there’s also every chance we could go way bigger in terms of statement when it comes to that position. Our summer really is going to be defined by who says yes… over a pre agreed plan.
Players leaving the club is an important aspect of the next three months. News that Andrey failed to impress at Zenit doesn’t matter because he’s out of contract. It’s mildly interesting that Fener are sniffing around Gervinho and Bendtner. Someone needs to take them both, I can’t believe anyone would be mad enough to do that as a double deal… but whatever works for Turkish football I say.
The Mirror are talking wage structure and how we plan to break it this year. The club know that to land the best you have to pay £10m a year. Lots of talk is happening around what we’re capable of… for me, we need to deliver one player of note sharpish. Talk is cheap, a 5 year £150k a week deal is a premium statement that matters.
Let’s see what happens. Right, I’m done. Enjoy the Champions League final!
