Another bleak day for English football. A perhaps ‘better than average’ footballer has been sold for an extraordinary amount of money speculatively pumped in by a foreign investor.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not having a childish dig at Manchester City here, it’s just I have to ask the question, ‘Where is this actually going?’ I could see what Chelsea were up to when they went on their spending spree of Abramovich’s millions.
I can understand the logic of paying out this class of cash for a player that will dramatically effect your fortunes, but Milner has yet to convince many that he is that player.
As I write Joleon Lescott is featured on Sky Sports News highlights being beaten by a Harlem Globetrotter who then scores. From ‘outside the six’.
Ireland was mooted as a possible makeweight to the Milner deal, but a combination of Mancini’s attitude toward such deals and the player’s general lack of motivation to jump ship at this stage have ruled that out
As we reported earlier this week, one positive to this is that it will at least kick start Villa’s shopping trip.
Craig Bellamy rumours are circulating link a nervous party host. Cardiff supposedly told he’s theirs for £6 Million. Tottenham told to make OIRO £12 Million. The latest is that Mark Hughes now wants him at Fulham.
Fulham are a Bride On A Budget compared to some, but maybe Bellamy wants guaranteed first team football and is not prepared to sit and wait for Tottenham to fail to sign anyone really eye catching before he finds out what the future holds for him.Like what the TT have on offer?
