It seems there’s plenty being written about the club and team, but it’s all fluff in my opinion.
There’s talk about Spurs offering us Dembele as a swap for Delph.
While he’s a decent player, I just don’t see it happening.
Give us about £5 million on top and I might consider it as a decent deal.
Does that sound daft? Not for me, as bear in mind Dembele’s had 6 games in a Spurs side that aren’t exactly setting the world alight. Did he even start them all? I doubt it, but don’t know.
Delph is an England newcomer, which automatically gives him higher value and my attitude is that we should really push the boat out to keep him, wages-wise.
It just isn’t going to happen though, is it?
It’s bordering criminal, the way we’ve let this one play out and no doubt whatever we get for him (less a few bob for Lerner’s back pocket) will go into the rumoured decent transfer pot in the winter window.
So one of our best players gone in exchange for whatever Lambert gets us.
That’s worrying, given Lambert’s record of signings.
Whatever, it’s a story that’s being touted by the London media backing one of their own clubs. Enough said.
There’s plenty of talk about Cleverley, as in should we take up the option of buying him at the rumoured £8 million or whatever it is?
Interestingly, stats seem to back up reasons why we should keep him, but I’m just not seeing it, as he contributes nowhere near enough for my liking.
I personally wouldn’t pay £2 million for him on what we’ve seen so far, but a poll has been asked for regarding this and I’m happy to oblige.
I see Hutton is talking about how we can beat Man United.
Good luck with that one, but I guess you never know. Given our results against them over the last 20 years, you would think we are due a win. But that’s for another day.
I haven’t even bothered looking at any rumours of who we might get in, as I’ve come to the firm conclusion that there will be no-one of any major interest, full stop and the simple fact is nobody can second guess what Lambert thinks, let alone name players he might be interested in.
As for ITKs, well, you have to laugh, don’t you?
Lerner doesn’t have a scooby and I’m sure even Lambert thinks our defence isn’t the problem it was.
Which probably leaves him somewhat flummexed.
So where would any ITK’s get their sources from?
Am I downbeat? No, not really.
I think I’m just becoming used to the way things are.
And seriously missing any excitement about the club.
