Just a couple of snippets today. Afraid the snippets are about players linked outward not inward.
The twitter world was going mad yesterday because apparently a black player was driven to Bodymoor Heath. Not sure how anyone knows it was a player, but hey ho...! No names emerged.
I also can`t understand why some are getting upset that Sunderland have agreed to pay £12million (surely £6million too much?) for Wolves player Steven Fletcher BUT yes, I would like a few more links for players inward, in fact sod the links, I`d like to see them in the shirt on the pitch!
The Daily Mail say that Richard Dunne is set for a move to Stoke City before the end of this transfer window (midnight Aug 31st).
The 32-year-old has just one year left on his contract.
When we asked if you would sell Dunne in a poll we got these results:
Poll Date: 12 Aug 2012
Suggested By: JP Fear
I'd drive him out of VP myself 57%
Yes, for the right price 28%
The Daily Mail also state the obvious that Stephen Warnock has also been pushed towards the exit door. The 30 year old has apparently been offered to both Blackburn and Sunderland.
Is he being judged too harshly?
Opted stats from last season:
1. Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa) 103
2. Youssuf Mulumbu (West Brom) 101
3. Stilian Petrov (Aston Villa) 97
Not sure I agree with the players being pushed so far away that they don`t always train with the main squad, but at the moment I`m reading I Am The Secret Footballer (lifting the lid on the beautiful game) and it seems most managers do this to prove they are the boss. Of course, if you have big enough bollox,you don`t have to play games and prove anything.
I do think Collins, Dunne and Warnock weren`t the greatest influences in the dressing room, so won`t be sorry when they`ve all gone, however..............
Football, funny old game innit.
Hopefully the next transfer article has a few links in, or maybe we`ll be able to be talking about a new signing or two!
