Evening all. How are we doing? All well I hope, although I see I’ve not exactly missed much on the news front.
Some of you may have wondered where I’ve been, most of you probably won’t care, but suffice to say I’ve been busy at home these last two days!
So here is a quickie aimed at getting some discussion going. Basically I was reading The Chronicle earlier and stumbled across some of the comments beneath the article. I can’t remember it word for word but it was an article with no foundation just basically saying that we may or may not still be in for Luuk de Jong, Mathieu Debuchy and Vernon Anita.
Thrilling stuff that none of us know or have heard about previously. Sarcasm intended.
Anyway one of the comments underneath, again not word for word, went something along the lines of backing the transfer policy we have now as Mike Ashley finally seems to have a plan to take the club forward. Of course it is personal opinion, but is it right or wrong? Have some fans just left it too late to realise that this has been the plan beyond the last couple of years?
The only difference now is that we are in a position to action the plan now that we are back in the Premier League. I remember, as most will do, the speech about buying carefully, no more Michael Owen’s etc etc, and that came long before our recent success in the transfer market.
It’s not a new thing. The only difference now is that fans are actually starting to see that it can work for us and that we can bring in good players on modest fees and play the transfer market to our advantage.
This isn’t a new plan – It’s the original one finally being realised!
