Is Vodka and Sky Sports The Answer?

8 years ago

It is stupid o’clock in the morning and I’m still on the vodka, I have Sky Sports news blasting and the news is not good guys.

Sky Sports are reporting that there is a £14m bid in for Yohan Cabaye (as I write this no more has been said).

To be totally honest I really do not think he will be a big miss (Sissoko!)/ recent form/demeanour

What I am afraid of is that we sell Ben Arfa (Liverwho) and/or Tiote as well (Arsenal/ Spurs).

I have been saying for a few weeks on this site that sh*! was going to happen and that we would lose a player or two.

We all know what has been said by Mr Pardew  concerning certain players leaving the club and we all know for certain that these players will not be replaced until at least January at the earliest ( 4 out 2 in). Suffice to say that ‘IF’ Ashley doesn’t start flashing the cash we will be in for a bumpy ride in the earlier part of this season.

Lesser clubs have spent millions on players (not to mention our neighbours) and with the £20m extra TV cash I don’t think for one second that it will not find itself into Ashley’s back poke, along with the Carroll cash and the likes ( you guys know the score).

The thing that gets my goat is that we WILL sell our players for a huge PROFIT and that MA will not replace them, indeed has no intention of doing so.

Think about letting Perchy go, a good all-rounder £1m, FFS. WHY?????

If you look at it from my point of view, Perchy was the only guy you could play out of position and you would get 110% out of him, yeah maybe not the best but good enough. Now then look at Jonas/ Shola/Obertan/Gosling!!!!  Pards thinks they are the bees’ knees,

Can anyone tell me WHY, HOW, WHEN, WHERE, WHAT IF, WAS, CAN, CAN’T, COULD HAVE BEEN??????????????

If you can come up with an answer then you’re probably on Pardew’s books.

The best thing that can come out of this, is IF we use the cash to buy players we need and not cheapo young`uns, the worst is that nowt is spent and we end up playing the young`uns that played at Brighton in the cup last term (OMG).

What we need right now is some understanding and speculation from the owner, some serious tactical thinking from the manager & coaching staff and JFK to keep well out of it.

We need players to pick up big style from where they left off last season, stay fit and injury free. Most of all we need the belief we had when KK was here. We cannot win a game playing one up top, which is the way to “not losing”(quote AP),  4-4-2 or 4-3-3 is the only way to go. KK quotes;, “attack is the best form of defence” and, “we will score one more than you.”

When January comes, If and it`s a big if, we are up there, playing well and full of confidence, have points on the board, then I will shut me gob.

If not, then I will start a fight and call for Pardew`s head along with MA and JFK, I will call on all true Mags to back me up and cause WW3 against these people.

Any road up, it’s time to go to bed and dream of what will be.

I only hope it isn`t a nightmare, I`ve had enough of them in this close season.
