One thought on “NUFC news round up – Striker offered to NUFC, Sorensen leaves + Almiron deal not dead?

  1. While Andy Carroll’s injury record may make Michael Owen look like the perfect employee, at a cost of 2 million he may actually be worth a punt, if Rafa was ever willing to play 2 up front.

    If Peter Kenyon has any sense at all he’d just say up front that the takeover is on hold to allow us to secure our Prem status and to allow him to get more dosh together. It makes more sense all round, though that seems to be something that’s pretty rare where the Toon are concerned.

    I doubt that the agent’s fee is the problem where Almiron is concerned – have we forgotten the supposed 30 million transfer fee and a hundred grand a week?

    I used to work with a guy who had 2 identical Jaguar XFs. His logic was along the lines that Jaguar reliability was so bad if a Jag was to be reliable, you needed 2, one to cover the others breakdowns. Carrolls the same. For the Almiron’s agents 4 million fee we could get 2 Andy Carrolls.
