Day 28 of the transfer window, Joe Kinnear comes to the diary room to talk to Big Brother.
“Hello Joe, any progress in the transfer window?”
“We’re looking to get a few over the line”, replies Joe.
Is it just me, or does it seems like Groundhog Day? With teams like Norwich signing Gary Hooper and Swansea Wilifred Bony, we have yet to make one of note this summer.
What is less encouraging is Pardew’s assertion that he seems to be happy with what he has got. I read that on one of the forums claims that we’ve already done our transfer business in January and no signings are forthcoming.
If that were to be true; Lee Evans, Russell Howard and Sarah Millican combined would collectively have to try every amusing sketch in the book to try and cheer me up, as I would be in a state of complete depression.
To assume what we have now is enough is madness. Shane Ferguson has gone out on loan, James Tavernier also, not to mention the likes of Xisco, Ranger, Harper, Perch and Simpson have now gone. We need players in and fast.
I do not want us to be reckless and sign players for the heck of it but just sign up Gomis and Remy, at least that makes us stronger up front. We do not want to be in a position come August 31st when we have an injury to our key players and only have 24 hours to bring new ones in.
Come on Pardew and Kinnear, time now to strengthen the squad before the 19th of August.
