First singing Fredericks. Just been promoted with fulham.
Targets.. Anderson... Confident player. Lazio.... Winner last season of the Supercoppa Italiana. Runners up twice in 4 years and one semi final in the Coppa
Reports coming in that we are edging closer to Javier Pastore. Trying to negotiate a drop in wage demands for a signing on bonus.. Plays for PSG who more or less win everything domestically.
To change a struggling team you first have to change the mentality of that first 11 and that can only be done by bringing in players that can't spell relegation battle. Then maybe their attitude will rub off on players around them and we can enjoy the more flowing footy we saw against Everton when we played without fear of the drop.
If i am right then Alfie Mawson will not be Pellegrini's choice of player having been part of a relegated team.
Interesting theory. Does mean they might not know how to dig in deep and get results once the shit hits the fan like it tends to do for us
But couldn't it also be true that players who win things also have to "dig in deep" ? In my experience in sport, just as in every other aspect of life, it's a lot harder to be a winner than a loser.
If it looks like a cunt, walks like a cunt, and talks like a cunt it's either Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn.
