The Wonderful World of Sven


Recommended Posts

wasn't thre suggestion recently, of a deal involving a certain French international defender moving from Scotland to England, for a rather inflated fee - that there was something iffy going on there? :unsure: Without mentioning any names like ;)

 

You mean he signs for the manager's former club on a free, then leaves for said manager's club for several million pounds ?

 

Chelsea's and Newcastle's lawyers must have received a call this evening. Possibly. Allegedly.

 

LOL! You'd like that!

 

Be MADE up if it were Newcastle. They do my box in.

 

I am still of the opinion that something very dodgy went off with the transfers of Woodgate and Owen.

Madrid can't have known that they'd need to offload Owen when they bought Woodgate. The two transfers aren't connected obviously.

 

Except for the fact that the fees in both cases were massively above the market rate and in hindsight can be seen to be reciprocal.

 

Its just that, in neither case can I see an advantage for the buying club. What did Madrid have to gain by buying Woodgate for stupid money ?

Didn't the Rangers chairman, Murray, admit recently that Souness is still a close friend and tries to help out the club whenever he can. The Newcastle fans certainly think that they paid way over the top for Boumsong and they have their suspicions as to why.

I think Figaro alluded to Camacho getting a fair whack of the Woodgate fee didn't he?

 

 

Doubt someone who had so little influence would be involved like that.

 

Anyone pocketing cash at such clubs, would be those high up, doing the wheeling and dealing.

 

Allegedly and all that. :P

 

Anyway, this is to do wit English clubs ain't it.

I thought this comment at the end of the article was odd...

 

"... and the pressure may now be on Eriksson to reveal what he knows just four-and-a-half months before the start of the World Cup."

 

Reveal to who, the English FA? His employers? If SGE is aware of these stories and they're not, then what kind of f***ing ship are they running? I'm sure they know full well but they've tried to keep it quiet.

 

Can we not get a pitchfork-wielding, wooden torch-carrying angry mob together and march on the FA headquarters and burn them all as witches? And if not, why not?

Surely number 1 is 'Arry???

 

Or is calling him 'Coach X' rather than 'Manager X' a clue?

 

Souness never really had any lingering claims about dodgy dealings before the Boumsong story in all fairness. Though the Ali Dia story still amazes me.

Before we get too excited we have Diao, Diouf and Cheyrou all of which have led to spectacular losses and there is the UEFA investigation into certain transfers from the French league.

 

 

Aye, I was thinking that, Cisse deal as well always seemed a bit stinky to me. I think they are referring to last season tho aren't they, so Diouf/Diao deals would be from far further back.

 

First one he's refering to has to be Redknapp.

 

2nd one could be Ferguson or Maureenho. Although the fact they say he 'no longer deals with', suggests maybe it's someone who's been here for a long while, thefore more likely to be Ferguson. But then again, with all the rumours of Eriksson sticking his nose in all things Chelsea during Euro 2004, who knows!

 

3rd one: "At the risk of being presumptuous, do not, I will not allow you to make the mistake that (Club Three) did and certain other clubs by paying far too much for certain players because of illegal deals with agents and managers, or even agents and chief executives, or even agents and chairmen. It's a cesspit!"

 

Mmmmm, does sound a bit Newcastle like that doesn't it? But also Chelsea like as well :unsure: But that 'paying too much for certain players', could easily refer to a few of our past dealings and a couple other clubs I'm sure as well.

 

Anyway, all names in this post are covered by the obligatory 'allegedly' ;)

Exactly. Whilst I'd be surprised if we were one of the clubs, I don't think we should be overly confident that we are in the clear. I don't see what evidence SGE would have, so more than likely he is just passing on rumours he has heard, so I doubt anything will come of it.

The Owen transfer has always baffled me. No offers on the table for him and the barcodes come in with a 16 million bid. How can you bid that high with no other takers.

 

except opf course the 12£ mio offer we tabled. :rolleyes:
