Third generation Villan has offered the following, something I think many of us will agree with;
I, like most fans enjoy the transfer window especially the summer window, where we look everywhere we can constantly to see who we could be buying or selling and we all have our opinions of who we should buy or not and our fantasy list of players we would like to buy if we owned the club and had unlimited funds to do so.
But I just had to make this post about the bias the media has for the top 5 or 6 clubs, as we all know its there but I feel its getting worse and it really winds me up.
I listen to Talksport while traveling to and from work and they just love liverpool and the other big clubs.
For instance, over the last few days I have heard their so called experts and reporters come up with the following itk comments…. Benteke is wanted by Spurs and would like a straight swap for Adebayor (you couldn’t make it up could you?) but he has his heart set on liverpool. And then the deal is done for benteke and he will move today or tomorrow but liverpool wont pay the £32 million (if you dont then FO, is what I say).
But the best of the lot is one I hear this morning…… Benteke will go to liverpool for 2 players, Enrique and Lambert and £7 million (more like £25 million and those 2 misfits) and the club will be sold to an arab consortium in the next few days!
Then there is the Delph story, if the papers are right and its only £10 million.
Why has there not been a bid and why is he still here? The rest of the Premiership would be knocking the door down for that price (I agree with others on here that that fee was only if we got relegated).
There are other rumours as well but you get my drift, as it’s not just Talksport but the media in general. As I said it winds me up and I am interested to see if any of you agree.
Or is it just me getting cranky in my old age?
