Let's play summer window mad libs.
READ: ___________set for SHOCK exit.
___________ has rocked his employers by putting in a shocking want away request over the weekend. Despite ____________ and ______________ his agent _____________ has declared that his current club no longer suit his ambitions and he looks to leave the once __________ club for greener pastures.
This seems strange after ___________ the club badge in a public display of ____________ just weeks ago. But the _________ change just two days ago has ushered in a new era and things seem to be up in the air.
He scored _________ times this season but was perhaps will be best remembered for __________ the ____________ earlier this year.
And now for the "news":
Which is good because I'm telling mostly convinced we're not signing anyone, Cameron Carter-Vickers will be a backup defensive mid, and DeAndre Yedlin will be sold even though he's probably just as good if not better than Kieran Trippier.
I'd like to think if we're buying a player who will be coming in as one of the two or three oldest outfield players, it would be someone who offers a bit more than Shane Long. Also, I'd be really surprised if our scouts weren't there to watch someone else.
I don't know what it's like to be famous, but when I read about stuff like this, I'm pretty happy I'm not. Good luck, Alan; we hope you get back home soon.
I love how people most sporting enthusiasts don't know about get to shine on center stage during Olympic years. And the amateur spirit, void of cynicism or greed--it's just so pure.
Seriously, though, I like the Olympics.
