L'espion mal fait
- May 11, 2008
Really sad that Lighty isn't here tonight to tell us why this will all be okay.
To be honest I'm not actually sure this is the case anymore. After not buying last summer, I think we're realistically more like 3 or 4 away from properly challenging now. Our weaknesses are plain for all of us to see.So frustrating to see the squad we have now and see how we only need one or two good signings to really challenge
then do it....I’m not entirely sure about that. I remember several interviews in the past where he talked about really wanting to be able to deliver his Ossis and Ricky/Jurgen moment for the fans. That always struck me as him knowing exactly what those massive emotional moments mean for us, the fans, and how they can carry us a long way.
I think he dearly wants to deliver a marquee name.
I was confident when we signed TNd that he was the first of a record breaking summer. Today’s ItK has dented my confidence somewhat, but I am an eternal optimist. And won’t stop watching Jim White until hours after the 5pm deadline, waiting for the deal sheet announcing a miracle hah
From the ITK re: GLC it's clear that Betis have been giving us the runaround which you can't blame Levy for. Not having backups if said deal falls apart is the problem. It's never really been clear if we have alternates lined up...Can’t believe Levy would fcuk this window up for the sake of an extra€10m on either GLC or Fernandes. It doesn’t make sense.
Yep never the club's fault."If you were buying a car and you could spend £20k 6 weeks ago or £15k now out of your pocket what would you do ? Then when you want to actually spend the £15k it suddenly turns into £21k with loads of other bits what would you do ?"
JJ on, I presume, GLC. Confirms the previous ITK on them moving goalposts.
