Of the last 60 deals in the transfer window, over 40 of them [players brought to the Premier League] were from overseas. You have to say [to young players in England] ‘what are you going to do about it?’
No disrespect to those seven who are currently missing but I don’t think many fans would currently put any of them ahead of last week’s, and likely to be this weekend’s, starting eleven. Whereas Hull only have 4 players missing but at least three of them are usually first eleven starters.
While some may disagree, for me he was the one first-team player that carried his form into last season’s ultimately disappointing campaign (when he was fit that is), with some excellent displays and goals against the likes of Liverpool, Aston Villa and (again) Stoke City.
The Lyon owner simply added to the ridiculous nature of the Bafetimbi Gomis fiasco and Aulas is about as well respected in France as our very own Joe Kinnear is on Tyneside….no wonder no transfer happened!
