Too Little Too Late

Two days into the Chronicle's long awaited (and much dragged-out) interview with casino king Derek Llambias. The story so far:

We're a buying club that doesn't buy, but when we do buy we won't be buying on credit, because that's like having a bucket with lots of holes in it. Our five-year aim is to be the new Aston Villa, although they do buy on credit because they still owe us £4 million for Milner, which we'll be spending on the players we couldn't sign in January - unless they're too expensive or their clubs won't sell them because they're buying clubs too. We still like Shay Given, stick with us, don't mention the K word, Dennis Wise is "out there", Bassong is a star, Joe Kinnear is "what we're looking for", we're back on track, we have a plan, we're not going to be relegated.

Personally, I liked him better when he kept his mouth shut.

Unbelievable that Ashley has actually MADE money on transfers during the January window!

If there was ever a time to buy this was it - what exactly Wisey is up to is not clear to me...

By the look of things we panicked at the last minute and tried to negotiate cut-price deals for players who were never going to come - would the Mackems have sold Richardson on the last day of the window??
The only signing Wise made was a 16-year-old Slovenian. Not exactly a great help at the minute, is he?
Unbelievable is the word.

thanks for summing it up for me.. I've only had time to skim part one and when I had recovered from whiplash and violently throwing up I decided I'd skip the other 3 parts...
not that I had expected anything else... now we don't even have the hope anymore that things'll get better... spare Villa shirt anyone?

At least you lot aren't on some kind of frigging 'journey'

Michael said...

Yeah, but your journey's going to be a bit cheaper to follow next season. There's more chance of getting 25 goals a season from Michael Owen than of Ashley dropping ticket prices.

Don't even start me on the "interview" - if you want to call it that.
It was nothing more than the CON-icle and Journal making sure that theclub don't freeze them out of reporting on the club.
