Well, same as usual lately, as in not much to report, but I thought I’d throw this stuff up there for discussion.
Concrete Ron is resting on his holiday and playing trampolines with his kids. Exactly as it should be on your time off. He goes on to say he isn’t thinking about footy, but will chat with his agent later down the line.
So, he’ll stay if nothing comes up, but will be off like a shot if he gets offered a better deal.
My money says he’ll be staying;
Swansea are looking to re-sign KI after interest from us and Arsenal;
This one is total rubbish. There is no way Wenger will be interested in him, so it’s down to if we can offer him a better deal than Swansea will. Sadly (and no disrepect to Swansea), that’s a big ask.
He seems to be our top target and I personally think we might get him, if the deal can be done.
I’d actually like this one to be sorted, for what it’s worth, as he seems a better bet than what we’ve signed up to now and he looks might he might improve us, with the club/manager showing a bit of ambition.
But we also have to ask how often we get our supposed top target. It isn’t often, is it?
And then there’s Lambert’s odds for the sack, which I don’t need to post links to, as many of us will no doubt have him marked as well up the list.
He won’t be the first (I’d back Fat Sam for that), as Lerner wants to hold him at all costs, given that he’s about the only person I can think of that would work under the current circumstances, unless we’re talking minor league managers.
I think I might do better looking for odds about him getting sacked by christmas.
Not that it means I’m happy.
