Other Clubs’ Players; bad luck, man

Cristiano has caught COVID. I’d like this thread to be about genuine bad luck rather than shadenfreude.*

Other clubs players Col, but in a similar Vein, David Buust when he Buusted his leg and made The Great Dane do a Great Vomit.

It nearly made my vomit years later when I saw Busst wearing shorts at a Solihull Moors game. His leg still looked a real mess.

Didn't know where to put this but this is a real life story that highlights things going wrong.

I know all football transfers are pretty unseemly, but this Haaland tour of a load of big clubs in Europe is particularly irritating. It is just a representation of all the greed and unpleasantness of the game.

Completely agree. Well said.

But is it? Isn’t he just getting the very best deal and professional circumstance for his career? He’s a superb player and will have the pick the clubs that can afford him. So why not maximize it? Not like he’s going to get paid and then not perform. He’s proven with his domestic and CL goals and assists how dominant he is now and likely for many years to come.

All true, but had to laugh when I watched him for Dortmund today when he had a Wesley-style strop on all day with a performance to match.

Clearly, he's a top player but his nickname could have been the Incredible Sulk.

Bellingham looked decent again.

I don’t have an issue with him seeking the best for his career, although I’m not entirely convinced a move this summer is the best footballing option. It’s the public nature of the “tour” I have a problem with.

I think the visiting of clubs is something that they have to do. The public nature of it is the media’s willingness to cover what could be the biggest transfer ever; certainly likely to be the biggest one this summer if he leaves.
