Helicopters & Last Minute Machinations

Good evening crouch potatoes.

This has got to have been one of the funniest windows witnessed in recent seasons. Largely as the big boys have got involved we have some proper comedy opposed to the online religious cult. Bellamy in a helicopter. Benayoun fleeing Israel by unspecified means and David Bentley travelling to Upton Park on a Boris bike.

Begbie is off to Villa is done. Big Eck is creaming himself at the prospect of eventually landing the Generalissimo. Jenas & Crouch are in a holding pattern.I say holding pattern, 3MP did end up in the van and is currently shaking off the aftereffects of some heavy duty sedatives.

What will this trigger? Not much is my prediction. The tangible impact of both departures would be wage bill orientated rather than funding a crazy megabid for a household name.

Killjoy? Pr’aps, but work it out, all we could realistically generate is enough to pay for the Scotty Parker and a yet to be naffed up Cahill deal.

More as I don’t get it.

    Begbie to QPR???, they’ve offered a million more than Villa (apparently).
    Wait and see tomorrow I suppose.

    Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaah… taxi for Bentley… Bentley for Bentley?! Whatever… he’s gone… ;)

      On loan. Likewise ***** is a loan deal.

      They’ll be back to pick up their wages next year.

  • UnkleKev says:

    If talks to take Bassong to QPR are at “an advanced stage”, then I suspect the Cahill deal must rate as being a bit better than the 50/50 which is being reported.

    It’s all shaping up very nicely for a change.

    Agree….we live in hope of something vaart-esque though.
    Providing 3mp goes, doesn’t that leave us a bit light on options up top? If Barn door, pav or Defoe get a long term knock….we are, as they say france, fucked.
    This is though, a window to celebrate the departures as much as the arrivals I think

    • MysteriousStranger says:

      I’m hoping we get a player who’ll go longer than 65 mins.

      • chickenbadge says:

        Oh yes, imagine that…..
        Crouch deal held up on ‘image rights’. Tell you what Pete, I’llgive you the contents of my penny jar and we’ll call it quits eh?

    Can’t be happy with the business we are doing.

    Yes its great to get rid of some of these players. But we really could have done with Jenas / Palacious against city.

    Scott parker being our only new arrival will not freshen the place up and if we got a few injuries we would be left a bit light upfront, at the back and frankly in the midfield where we used to be overloaded.

    Levy spent all of 5 Mil this transfer window which we got from selling o hara to wolves. No ambition.
