GrahamRoberts on FTL re: Baldini

The newspapers in Italy have implied that the guy here in Boston is unwilling to let him go. But he's a cheap prick (this is ITK as I know his driver and he tips like a homeless man) and will probably jump at any cash we offer.

Assuming all the Baldini talk is spot on, i would assume all transfers (or most) are on hold until this is sorted.
Let's hope that if this is the case that we deal with Roma quickly.

Also, you can't just 'not let him go' - same as my employer couldn't hold me to my job if I wanted to leave.

Not letting him go on the cheap, now that's a different matter. If Levy's got to hand the transfer reins over, and pay for it, he will want to be very, very sure he's got the right man.

Try looking down the side of the couch :D
Not there - found the remote for the telly though so that's a bonus.

Also found what looked to be some exciting new ITK linking us with an exciting young Brazilian striker called Damiao but it turned out to be from two windows ago.

I totally agree. You don't hamstring a guy coming in by buying players (and taking away kitty) before he comes in.

Great news if Baldini joins, lessens the chance of last minute Gary Hooper's and Chris Brunt's IMO.

Baldini's Roma has bought some last minute deadline day players too: Pjanic, Kjaer, and loans for Borini and Gago all completed on August 31, 2011; a sight better than Chris Brunt I should think.

If this is the case then we're fucked. Proper fucked. By the time he gets his feet under the table, has a chat with Levy, then has a chat with AVB, then goes back to Levy to discuss the results of the chat with AVB, goes back to AVB to discuss the results of the chat with Levy.............It'll be fucking January.

I can see Levy signing Baldini on August 31st with about 15 minutes of the window to go and saying to him "come on Frankie, time to work your magic. Show Papa what you've got!".
