Happy Monday, Spursland! Perhaps we should change the name of the Hoddle of Coffee in the summer to "Dispatches from the Great Waste". SB Nation has a great write-up on the big 5 teams and where they stand at this moment and what they need to do in the future. However, as we enter the middle of June we have nothing. No serious rumors, no serious rumblings. This is the classic log jam folks. All we need is for that one log that is jamming everything up to be plucked loose and the deluge will follow.
And now the "news"
David Bentley, £16 million, never again. If that is fulfilled, then I will call this hiring a success.
There were Lloris to Monaco rumors? BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES!!!! Under. No. Circumstances. Russian oil money cannot buy love, and it can't buy Lloris.
After reading this I get the feeling nobody really thinks we have a shot at improving.
I can feel the baby kicking when I watch this.
I had always assumed that Perez was just someone who promises huge and financially damaging transfers, but this makes him out to be a generally nice, and a smart guy who cares about his club. I have to say, I don't like that. I like hating Madrid. I like it when they play the heel to literally every other team's good guy.
