And I said towards advance not to advance. Your forgiven.
Interesting.They have quite an old-fashioned journalistic relationship - you scratch my back I scratch yours
Burt pushed AVB's agenda very hard over the PSG stuff to force the Baldini appointment through. In return I guess he gets snippets - hence being the first to break Paulinho and our strong interest in Villa
Before Burt, the club's semi-official leak was Gary Jacob of the Times (not the same one who does Talksport).
Yep. Plus every single possible deal (with the exception of Lloris) that we've been linked to in the past that I allowed myself to get excited over, ended up going the way of the dodo. Forlan, Suarez, Vucinic, Moutinho, Villa....Exactly. I wish people would stop mentioning him. It would be too good.
I think Lamela was in response to a question about him, rather than something Burt actively volunteeredInteresting.
Maybe so but we've not heard one mention of Lamela from ITK's or in any sustained form in the press; this part I would fathom may be a tad of the sensationalist journalist coming out in Burt.
Either that or to take your view on the relationship, perhaps AVB is leaking this target to put pressure on Levy and co. (Just musing...)
Got a link ?Some interesting stuff from Burt in the last hour worth checking out - Benteke will take a while as Villa won't lower from £25-30m; Chadli the most likely wide forward, though Lamela on the list; and still surprise alternatives to Benteke + Bernard/Chadli/Lamela that haven't been mentioned yet.
off to twitter for you BCGot a link ?

Burt mentioned Lamela AGES ago in a piece as someone we could be interested in; very casual really and tonight he's responded very non-comitally to a question.
Lamela sounds a million miles away and Burt isn't encouraging it.
I thought you were all for the 'horses for courses' approach?
