Millions of pounds is obviously millions of pounds but inside Premier League football you have to look at the going rate and surely Alan Pardew can’t claim a bid of under £6m is a ‘lot of money’? Can he?
I’m sorry but to stand any chance in the Premier League you need to look head and shoulders above the rest in the Championship and if in a forward position be scoring goals for fun like Ince has done, not one cracker as Sammy did.
Amusingly let go by Liverpool, last season he really showed his talent with 18 goals in the Championship, mainly from a wing position. He’s fast, skilful and unselfish, setting up his teammates as you’ll see below.
It is the World Cup at the end of the season and players will be desperate to have a stand-out year so they are considered for the summer of 2014. This applies to the majority of our first team players.
Talk of Graham Carr and Alan Pardew leaving has gone, we can now focus on the future, bringing in some new players. Although our squad I reckon on paper is top 8 quality, we still need around three top quality players; a striker, a winger and a centre back.
With it being a Bank Holiday we thought we’d save you a bit of time by bringing you a quick round-up of all the transfer ‘stories’ we’ve spotted in the last few hours, then you can get out and enjoy the next few hours before cold, rain, wind and pestilence return.
