Hmmm, can't open the link in work as the security system is telling me there is a Malware risk on that site...just an FYI for anyone clicking it.

Well, it's all in the past now but given our socalled "strategic partnership" deal with RM it certainly was a royal kick in the teeth to see Özil arrive to boost our fiercest rivals just as we had to announce the departure of GB. No matter what strings Levy pulled to prevent the Özil deal I don't blame him, and I still find it hard to watch Luka and Bale play for RM.
Having said that, I believe Levy did the best he could to lure other stars to the Lane before announcing the Bale deal, and to get the biggest possible fee out of the deal.

Hey...TTW is my blog. I'd be very grateful if you could PM me more details on the error message/issue and I'll try to get it sorted.

Cheers

I didn't want Bale to go but we got a fair price. I'm not sure that gave us the right to dictate Madrid's next moves in the transfer market any more than it should have given them a say in ours. If only we had some sort of strategic partnership with Real then we would have a voice.

OK for Chelsea to try it.

I say fair play to Levy. Football is a ruthless bastard of a sport and he didn't exactly try to do anything illegal or that wasn't in the best interest of this club so he gets a pat on the back from me.
