He was a Pool fan so I am a little surprised that he turned the chavs down because I did not think there was too much romance left in player signings. Good to see that he turned down the extra money (presumably) for the chance to join his boyhood club even if it costs us a bit of money. Maybe if you guys get him you won’t need Lemar.
Originally I wanted to keep Ox as much as “Dirty Sanchez” or Ozil, perhaps a little more. Now I just want to cash in on them all and hopefully get some replacements. Unfortunately the time is running down, but surely the club has been planning for the scenario that we may just sell them and need to get targets quick smart.
Sure we talked up that Dirty and Ozil were staying the season whether they renewed their contracts or not but shouldn’t there have been some behind the scenes planning on the very real probability that the players would be sold at the right price.
