We've obviously done something very wrong here.
Apart from worse case scenario points deduction (which I doubt we’ll get) all this negative publicity heaps more pressure on Silva to be an instant success because the media and pundits will be jumping all over him/us and asking questions right from the start.
What is interesting is iirc the club media friendly journalists at the time were quick to distance Kenwright from the managerial hunt.
Don’t think we have.
And don’t think the media will be interested once the season starts and there are plenty of real things to talk about so can’t see any pressure being raised that wouldn’t be there anyway.
They’re just saving face because they made a fuss and have now realised that they can’t get any money from it and don’t want to look like they’ve been cheaply fobbed off as part of the Richarlison deal.
