I kid you not people, it’s Friday. How quickly did that go? Very. Mainly because the working week for many of us started on a Tuesday. Which is a day later than normal. So not only did the week feel shorter, it was in fact actually shorter.
Football wise, there’s still a load of nothing out there. Literally nothing. There’s a story floating about the web about Nani for £15m. I mean, come on, seriously, where do Fleet Street get off with stories like that? It’s outrageous. 12 weeks ago he was a £30m player… now he’s cheaper than a 2 bedroom Sloane Square flat. I’m not buying the story or the flat…
There’s more idle chit chat about Cesc. Why is the chat idle? Because the damn Daily Mail are involved, that’s why. They haven’t had an exclusive for 7 years. Anyway, Barca would have to sell for £70m to break even apparently. This is because of the sell on clause no one thought they’d have to activate. They’re well off, but not that well off. So you’d imagine they’d like to push him our way.
My understanding of the deal is that Arsene has been speaking to him. If he wants out, he has to tell Barca he wants us. Will he do that? Maybe. He has a child now. He doesn’t get to see it much because he’s a selfish dad, so moving to London might make a whole bucket load of sense.
We bombed out a load of kids. Connor Henderson has left and a player with a name that looked like Imbecillio has also left… I’ll miss the both of them. Again, it just goes to show you what a nonsense it is to buy into youth player hype. 99% don’t make it. They don’t even look good in the reserves these days… the time wasters. Sorry, I mean, ‘good luck at Sunderland’.
Other news? Well, there’s not a lot of it. Le Grove is a dry well that pops out a cool bottle of Evian every morning… can it carry on? I don’t know. I hope so. I value your visit every morning, so we’ll try.
Have fun, catch you tomorrow! It’s Friday, so I’m off for some bacon…
