Well the Gobby One and mate, certainly knocked the winds out of my sails .Back in time on the benches of The Org ,myself and the likes of Brother Enfield warned everyone that the Dildo Brothers would squeeze every penny out of the Club and invest peanuts. We warned everyone what the transfer windows would be like .Freebies ,Cheapies and loan after loan. Which was the case !
They got their mates in the media to spin their phantom 'bids' .Linked EVERY top player under the sun ,needless to say they never happened .God NO ONE knows more than the Gobby One and Uncle Albert ,how to make sure that a transfer collapses !It has been the SAME FOR THIRTY YEARS! They started off with MARODONA while at Birmingham City !They leaked it to their many mates in the media ,that they were closing in on Maradona !Of course it was UTTER BOLLOCKS !!
Maradona ,signed for Sevilla. When asked about Birmingham ,Maradona said he had never heard of them, surprise !surprise !They certainly know how to exploit the media through contact built up through their Daily Sport years !They play the media like a fiddle !,they hand out exclusives like pockets of popcorn .Early in the summer transfer window ,it is RAZZLE DAZZLE TIME !We are linked with every expensive target going ,of course they don't happen !
Yet after ALL these years ,I marvelled at some still keeping the faith !!l Targets linked for a few days, then the transfer collapses .Either through failing to agree personal terms, failing to agree a fee with the selling Club ,failed medical ,selling Club can't get a replacement ,greedy agents .You have heard the crap over and over AGAIN !No need for me to tell you !So imagine my shock with the Gobby One, and Uncle Albert's work this window .Bloody outstanding .Excellent value for money and quality .
Many say it is Kretinsky's money ,some say it the Rice money and they are spending it early .Who knows .Either way they have spent it wisely and on the team. The jury is still out on Kretinsky, in my opinion .Sparta fans hate him and say he doesn't spend money. Even if it was his money ,without The Gobby One and Uncle Albert, there is every chance he would of been ripped off !I fear for football ,financial Armageddon awaits the likes of Forest ,Everton ,Leicester and the rest !When Clubs are paying FORTY MILLION for players who are not even first team regulars ,then you know football is in trouble !Agents have had a field day this window .Even the likes of Todd Boehly ,have vastly over paid for players.
In bringing in :Areola, Aguerd, Downes,Scamacca,Cornet,Kehrer,Emerson and Pacqueta .Not only has David Moyes been backed ,but he has a squad capable of playing ANY type of football. I salute David Moyes, for the outstanding job he has done for the last two seasons .BUT,I just wonder if he is starting to feel the pressure .He stated to the media that he wanted MORE signings ,which sounded like someone already looking for excuses .
There have been suggestions that some are not his signings .Lets leave the Gobby One and Uncle Albert out of it .Any business Owner, has the right to ask questions .Kral and VLasic were Moyes picks they flopped ,he wanted Lingard and we got Pacqueta which is a massive upgrade .There is always a give and take at every Club, between a manager and Board.The fact is that since January, the quality of football we have produced has been dire .I have seen better football under Big Sam !I'm afraid Moyes lacks a plan B. On the counter and that is it !Team's have been saying :"Right !you have got the ball, let's see what you can do ?"We have created NOTHING !We have been played off the park against the likes of Southampton ,Brentford TWICE ,Leeds and relegated Burnley !They have cut through our midfield like butter !
There was an argument to be had that last season we never had the squad ,we certainly do now .Yes we were unlucky against Chelsea ,as we were robbed by Var .But the simple fact is this .We have lost four out of six matches.Playing the likes of Souceck ,Bowen and Coufal ,is negative !Playing with Souceck is like playing with ten men ,slow ,hoofs the ball forward ,or shovels the ball back to his mate Coufal .The opposition WALK past him ffs !You put Fornals next to Rice ,Cornet at eight or ten .Out goes Bowen and in comes Benhrama, Bowen has pace and that's it !Zero technical ability ,run's with his head down into no man's land. Perhaps the Coaches ,could get Bowen to lift his head up. Hopefully Ben Johnson is fit soon ,because Coufal can't cross a ball and he gets done by the opposition time and again !
The more we get the likes of Cornet ,Benhrama ,and Pacqueta together the better.It will give them the chance to form a understanding ,once they do gel ,we are going to see some great football .In the brutal world of Premier League Football ,you don't get time .We have lost four matches ,lose against Newcastle and doubts creep into the players minds. The Gobby One and Uncle Albert, don't sack managers easily .But having spent the type of dough,they have this window, in the words of good old Eggy ,they might "cut Moyes throat "I hope it doesn't happen. With the squad we have got ,we are a attractive proposition for any manager !Great days lay ahead !,the only question is will David Moyes be in the managerial saddle.We are more than a football Club ,we're a way of life !COYI!!!
