Because signing 2 OAPs makes them a shoe in?

I've heard Terry's going to West Brom.

Spoiler:
Why the hell would he want to?


At least with Bournemouth, he could stay at one of 'Arry's properties....

What I want to know is why on that video they are playing "Oh when the Spurs go marching in" in the background? Need to go and bastardize someone else's songs those cheeky buggers :rofl:

The Greatest Transfers: Steve Coppell

Shameless plug for my debut piece on this website, which I plan to write for on an occasional basis.... if I was 20 years younger, I might even have gone back to school to take some courses on journalism, but that ship has sailed.

If JT's in town, maybe he'll be going down?

If you'd been a City fan back then, tears would have been much more frequent

Interesting article, well done!

As for the 'if I was 20 years younger' stuff, if you have a passion to take a journalism course, go and do it. There are so many flexible ways to learn now that fit round work/kids/life. Go for it!

Nice piece.

These days anyone can blog or write journalism. I don't believe Ariana Huffington or Peter Cashmore had any formal training on the subject.

If the current standard of journalism is anything to go by I can tell you that any journalism course consists of sitting in a class room looking at Twitter and re-posting any old shit you see.

As for the article I got as far as seeing it was on a Man United site, noticing your name was Rodney then I switched to Youtube and watched Only Fools and Horses clips.

Two players signed and 55M spent today, and it's only the middle of June.

Times are changing at Everton.

He needs the signing bonus to pay his tax bill.

Hard times in the household.

Still I'm sure like Lionel Messi he will not do any jail time.
