And they’re off.
I am indebted to a gentlemen I made the aquaintance of last week at t’Reebok who tells me Tottngham Hotspur’s name is doing the rounds as the club that has gone in today for t’Trotters defender.
What class of news is this? In short it fits in with the breaking tale that Arsenal have ‘withdrawn’ their interest in the player. Bizarre gig that. They pitch in with a frankly Mickey Mouse bid and then ‘withdraw’ their interest. Bit like me asking the woman in the shop how much the Cartier watch in the window is, she says fifteen grand and I tell her it looks ‘clunky’ before vacating the premises.
Cahill is no Cartier piece, but he would be a worthwhile addition. As I am sure anyone who witnessed Sunday’s debacle will attest.
Will we land him? When questioned about this last week he looked every inch a man who knew he was off, but was too polite to say so in front of the wide and the worthy before him occupying the Platinum Lounge.
