People's make-believe Brands narrative that we did in exactly the same way for Walsh.
To be fair I'm sure I've read that we were going to be scouting that tourney, and I've no idea how good this lad is but he looks a unit.
Is it really make believe? I'm sure if you go back to the threads around the time he joined you can find a number referencing a particular strength in S. America, such as this one from before he was officially announced...Iím freelancing at a Dutch company at present and there is a super knowledgeable guy who talks a lot about football. I mentioned the rumor and he said that it has been in the Dutch press too, he says that Brands has a good scouting network in Central and South America and finds good players from Mexico and Columbia.
But, I'm equally happy to remove S. America from the narrative and I think it still stands up that some are complaining about us doing what I thought we expected to be doing. We have to take risks spending a little and hoping that we can sell big when we move them on. So...
This. Was I dreaming or wasn't one of the attractions of Brands joining us last summer his magic touch in bringing unknown/little known talents and making a success of them? And now, one year later, we are worrying over a rumour that we may be interested in two unknown/little known talents. Erm, really?
