Jay Bothroyd

If that didn’t get your attention then arguably little will. I could weep.

And a very ‘good morning to you’, too.

Jamie Bothroyd’s name has been cropping up with alarming regularity of late and slowly slowly it is beginning to emerge that this tale has legs. Which sounds like something Sid Trotter would say or at least Gerald Scarfe would draw.

And now a chap on Spurs Community, with the username of CorlukaModric says that Bothroyd is training with Sir Ledley King at David Lloyd in Finchley.

Championship sure shooter Bothroyd has been linked with a host of second string outfits. QPR, Celtic and Everton. And now us! Cynics, naysayers and disgruntled whipper uppers will tell you that this is a typical Arry signing. Little to base this on in truth, other than the fact the boy speaks English fluently and has displayed a healthy work ethic.

He’d be on a free of course and perhaps, cheap to feed. But where would we be heading here? Is this Frasier Dumbell 2.0? An argument might be made that if he could be signed and scored half a dozen goals between now and Christmas that in the Mental Asylum of the Premiership he could suddenly be worth £10M come Christmas Day.

My view is we have a squad the size of the Moscow State Circus and as many hangers on as their high wire act. I’d rather we culled a few of our minor celebs before getting ‘punts’ like Bothroyd in.

    Stone me ’tis fixed.

  • Azza's Eyebrow says:

    If the signing of Bothroyd come to pass, then it’s proof – if proof be need be – that we are a 7th place team in the making.

  • Fatfish says:

    Before the outage, I was just about to reveal we have signed some bloke called Steve Archibald from Aberdeen.

    Is the pic at the top Sid’s new profile picture?

  • Frank Outlaw says:

    As a newbie but someone who has followed your musings for a long time, I have to agree. If this is true then we are in desperate need of a new manager………………Rossi & Bothroyd in the same breath beggars belief.

  • Frank Outlaw says:

    One other thing……….I think I read something about our ‘triffic’ manager building a team around Luka-if Bothroyd is the first piece of the jigsaw then I can only see it ending in tears…….Can’t really see Levy sanctioning this though

    • Azza's Eyebrow says:

      Oh, I don’t know. Get him in for free and sell him a year later for £2.5 million – that’s the kind of return to give Dan the Man a boner.
