Story of the season so far! Alialialialiadair has missed some so far as well. I was hoping that Alfonso Alves would solve these toe poke problems. 38 in 38 (sorry for the stat) is a great record although I appreciate the league is not a strong as ours but surely he can bag a few goals in the prem...nudge nudge #$%$ #$%$!
Did you see the priceless position the Dutch FA have put themselves in with his transfer? He and his club have signed some but not all the papers to move to another club and have not completed the transfer with the Dutch FA. They then sell him to us not completing the transfer to AZ who in turn complain. The Dutch FA uphold their (AZ) claim and are now saying Alves has 2 contracts. Not that I am fully aware of the situation but 1)how can the Dutch FA say he has 2 contracts? Does he play for one team then sub around at half time? Does he get 2 wages? 2) since when does the contracts signed by players and clubs over rule the rules of football if the transfer has not been completed? ie full transfer docs recieved and monies transfered? Surely not a good time to go for a quick "coffee" break before decieding the outcome of this one Messers of the Dutch FA!
