Ok, well let’s start the morning with some good news. Late last evening our old chum Myles posted a story about Sol Campbell being sold to Fenerbache for â‚¬12m. As yet the story has yet to be confirmed by the mainstream media – although the Mirror seem to have just fleshed out the ANR story – with only sketchy reports from websites in Turkish. If we get that much money for him it’s a ridiculously good piece of transfer business but there is some suggestion that it’s more likely to be a free transfer with the â‚¬12m figure quoted being Campbell’s wages for the duration of the reported three year deal.
He has taken a decision in the heat of the moment when you should make them with a lot of consideration.
If he really thinks that Thierry hasn’t thought time and time again about his future then he’s even more stupid than his pigeon Spanish suggests. It’s ludicrous to think Henry made his decision based on what happened on Wednesday. No matter what the Spanish press say, no matter what Cruyff says, no matter what stupid blog cunts who try and gain an audience by writing in a language foreign to 99% of the club’s supporters say we all know Thierry has thought long and hard about what to do. Time to stop insulting his, and our, intelligence with this claptrap.
With Robert Pires still likely to join Villarreal he could be joined by former Gunner Steve Sidwell who is an unlikely target for the Spanish side. Yes, it’s a very slow day today.
I also have a rather splendid hangover and a bit of sunburn from sitting out too long yesterday afternoon. As well as that I’m up far too early and I have no painkillers. Will somebody go get some for me, please?
