Giroud isn't coming so everyone can calm the heck down
He's going to Inter Milan .
I'll be right on things yet again.
But always hold hands up if I'm wrong and never make claims on anything.




If you turn out to have been a bot from St. Petersburg all along, Skillz, I'm going to feel really daft.

You can see why Putin wanted to bring us down.

Good source says we are making progress with Bowen. Be happy with that to supply the ammo.


Apparently we are back in for Giroud and are doing everything possible to resurrect the deal.

Yes apparently....
What's your silence on the Bowen move ?
Now spreading Giroud rumours ?


There are new rules out for stalking from tomorrow.


Thanks for the heads up. I have a bit of a thing for the woman two doors down so I now know I have about an hour to carry on looking through her letterbox without getting into trouble  ;)

From the BBC Sport football gossip page:  "Leicester and Aston Villa are targeting French striker Serhou Guirassy, 23, from Ligue 1 side Amiens in January."

No, but tell me more about this Jackie, particularly where she lives.

It really is desperation times. As a loan its fine, but as a 2-3 year deal it goes against all we have been trying to do.

All we've been trying to do has got us to 18th with no strikers available for crucial games so it hasn't been a qualified success so far really.

We need some proven winners in the dressing room if we are to improve further and actually become a force again in premier league in 2-3 seasons.

Already I'm seeing DS saying Reina has made a good impact in the dressing room with his mentality.

Who knows, get in players who aren't scared of playing Arsenal and Man. United and we might actually start picking up some wins against them like every other relegation threatened team.

We are starting games with a winger playing as a striker, yet some are extolling the virtues of a bloke whoís won a World Cup amongst many other trophies, and will very likely be playing up top for France in the coming Euros. Reality calling.

I think it's fair to question a centre forward who while playing for two of the top teams in the league who presumably create loads of chances, has managed 9 goals in 61 Premier League games in the last three years or to put it another way, 1 goal every (nearly) 7 games.

If he manages that for us, he'll have 2 goals before the end of the season. Not saying he's a bad player, clearly he's not. But is another non-scoring striker really what we need?

Yeah he dosen't score many in prem lately but did score decent amount in europa last season.

Although to be fair he looks like he has loads of potential but been unfortunate with injuries

Worth a gamble as understudy to Samatta and I assume less costly than Giroud

Lets be honest if Giroud has a choice of finishing his playing days with either us or Inter Milan, he is going to choose Milan.

I personally hope that we do not sign him, as I thought the days of us buying players who are here just to top up their bank accounts were long gone.

I can understand Giroud going to Milan. What we donít know is what his personality is like. Yes we have Waqas tees in the past, Giroud might not be like that. Inexperienced prospects hasnít worked to good so far, so maybe we get some experience in.

Such a shame it didnít work out for him here, he looked like the final piece in the jigsaw.

He was always going to struggle, given he's a Pakistani middle order batsman.
