The Importance Of Being Earnest
So it seems that we have finally been made an offer for I Wanna which the club deems as at the very least a starting point for negotiations. As things stand,it looks like we will get around £20m for him,with maybe some add-ons and the proverbial sell-on clause.
Knock off the £9m fee-twice what we could have signed him for up until May that year,cheers,Peter-and the PSG sell-on clause and we might have about £6m left.
Not a lot for a guy who gave us so many great moments,a great song-and a t shirt that I binned months ago.
I’ll try to remember him for his great moments,like the winner in the 3-2 game against the huns,down to ten men for so long. My memories though will doubtless be soured by his attitude last season.
Pre-pandemic,we would be looking at double this fee. Now,I think Brighton might be a tad optimistic about his quality and potential. And certainly his attitude.
Hang on a minute,did I just say Brighton? Bugger me backwards-I did! Believe it or not,the only club to have put in a bid for our superstar is that mighty legend of the English game,Brighton And Hove Albion. A team which won The Charity Shield over a century ago,and the square root of sod all since. And nobody knows where Hove even is!
Best known to my generation in fact for briefly employing Brian Clough prior to his disastrous tenure at Leeds. Or even-And Smith Must Score!
Brighton. F…..g Brighton,Eddie. That’s where your petulance last season has got you. Probably on about half the salary you thought you were worth eighteen months ago too. If you had tried a leg,pulled your weight,been earnest in your endeavours,do you think you would be anywhere near the level of Brighton?
Goodbye,good luck-but good riddance. I’d rather see that bloody t-shirt again than a petulant and uninterested player stealing a wage. And wrecking his own career in the process.
