They are what they are I'm afraid, two bob shysters with a mouthpiece for back up.
Yep it's been no surprise to me and yes , the bluenoses warned us but tbh us old hands knew all about 'em already .
But know what ? Bilic's first season doesn't happen , neither does all this shit .
No Dimitri Payet , none of this shit .
Those 2 cunts shut the fuck up , nobody gets their hopes up , none of this shit .
I think that's spot on. Sullivan specifically just can't stop big-noting himself.
We cannot (excepting Hernandez) sign established quality players.
All of our recent top players were mid-range gambles -- £10m for Payet, £8m for Lanzini, £7m for Antonio, £3m for Sakho, and so it goes on with Cresswell, Kouyate, Obiang, etc.
Why on earth don't we get back to that instead of embarrassing ourselves 'trying' to sign Carvalho or Bacca?
Maybe Sugo think that chasing after unobtainable talent is almost the same as signing it, and somehow that's good PR.
To be fair IF our chairmen were not constantly overstating the club's ambitions I think most would consider them to have done a reasonable job the last 5 seasons.
Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.
