Tony Clifton

Wonder if Klaassen has a locker?

In the kitchen now.  He's on gravy duty for the rest of the season.  Sam's calling him Gravy Davy already.

Besic has signed on loan for Middlesborough.

True. I wonder if they have many foreigners in their team? Great experience for him though. Will make him grow up quick too.

One of their best players is from Sweden. They also have keita, poulsen, Bruma, and Upamecano. That's just the ones I know of. Sure they have a couple more.

Didn't work for Sandro.

I think Germany will be a different kettle of fish. Don't most German's speak English anyway?

I think it will do Lookman good . Lots of different nationalities at Leipzig and lots of young players .

Yeah, that was my reading of his comments. Sounded to me like there was other options and that the club think it'll be tough for a young lad to be alone in a country where he doesn't speak the language, which seems a perfectly reasonable explanation.

Sounds like he was looking at it from the point of view of an old English bloke who goes to the algarve for his hols than a forward thinking coach who appreciates the Bundesliga is a decent standard and that Leipzig are a young exciting team.

Iíll be very surprised if Lookman starts games for RBL. I can see why the move would turn his head as itís the glamorous option but the sensible move would be to a championship team to get more game time. He either has a high opinion of himself or his agent is telling his client he should be playing CL football even at this early stage of his career. Neither bode well.

As for the Klaassen deal...sounds like it was to do with money and his camp not budging on some contractual issues.

Always weird when you loan a player who's not getting a game, to a team that is much better than you. It's almost like Allardyce's judgement might be questionable.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

More English kids should try their arm abroad. It will do wonders for the national team.

He just sounds desperate to get as far away from the footballing equivalent of Jurassic Park as possible.

I tell you what Sam, I've never been paid as much as this in my life. I can't believe it.

Me neither Steve.

Right, it's 11:00am, I'll get Sheila to nip down the chippy for an early dinner for us....and I've a couple of cans of warm Worthington's in this drawer with our names on to wash it down with.
