I bet Daniel wouldn't go the extra 2-3 million for the deal to be done. So now we have to suffer Bassong for the rest of the season. Surely he would have brought in the difference, Begers belief soometimes how our board conduct the business. With Cahill we had the chance of a quality CB pairing that would give us a chance of top 4 or 5. Now I fear we will not only lose Modric at the end of the season but others will want to leave. AND WHO CAN BLAME THEM. No ambition from the board.
I got the impression it fell through during player negotiations, can't remember where from.
Got 18mil for Crouch and Palacios combined, not far off the 20. I've got a fascinated begrudging trust in Levy at the moment, not had this before, and just been listing off our 'promising breakthrough" with my brother - there's quite a lot of them! Rose, Young, Naughton, Caulker, as well as those who've played recently... will be an interesting few months, that's for sure.
Not particularly pleased with the players we've got in or all of those we've let go, but seem to feel more positive than I have all season!
