I’ll pre-warn you that this won’t be a long article, so if you’re expecting an essay then look away now…
Basically it’s just a small moan about transfers. Already we are being linked with this player or that player and people seem to be foaming from inappropriate places about it all. I’m just wondering why? Why bother?
Our transfer activity is poor to say the least. We’ve not signed anyone permanently for 18 months and our last meaningful foray into the transfer market came about because we were involved in a relegation battle. It’s not a progressive system, it’s a reactive one, usually reacting to a sale or a struggle.
Yet here we are again with articles popping up all over the place suggesting moves for players. Apparently the club are looking to get some early deals done but I’ve heard that before. I’ve also heard of offers rejected for some players, which again has been done before. It’s early days but we’re treading a familiar path already.
I’m not saying that we won’t sign anybody because clearly we will. I’m just suggesting that recent history suggests there is nowt to get excited about during transfer windows, or in our case they’re just called ‘days’, and besides the window doesn’t open for another month yet anyway.
I feel bad for saying this, like I’m sucking the fun out of all the transfer rumours, but the fact is that pretty much all of them will fail to materialise. Just chill out and enjoy the weather and forthcoming World Cup.
