The 8 O’Clocker: Modric Unhappy, Samba Wants Out, Remy Deal Off…

Image for The 8 O’Clocker: Modric Unhappy, Samba Wants Out, Remy Deal Off…

Good evening.

This window is so quiet if you close your eyes you can just see Ted Moult pondering over which feather to use. But will Arry fit the best into this the Best Performing Side Since ’61™?

“I’m staying,” Loic Remy told Canal+. “I will 100 per cent stay at Marseille until the end of the season and even the end of my contract.

“I have spoken with the president and the staff. And it would not be right for me to leave this club.

“We’ll see next summer but that’s not even in my head for now.”

Closer to home a young man by the name of Christopher Samba has handed in his notice at Blackburn Rovers. This is hardly a seismic announcement. He was quoted saying, “things have not gone as I was told , it is time for a change”.

He is probably telling the truth. I’m not familiar with every single detail of the ins and outs of the Venky Operation but as I say, ‘you don’t need to fall off a chair to know it probably hurts.’

If I was Blackburn fan I would have had more respect for them if they had simply renamed the club The Peri Peri Pirates.

But what Blackburn got were two three halfwit rumours/threats/lies about Emporer Franz Beckenbauer and Geoff Hurst or similar joining them. It would have been more credible if they’d have said that Nick Griffin was signing.

Steve Kean was recruited for his ability to say,’ yes’ and the only money they put in was to service existing debt. Oh and of course the cash they had to give the Trustees. Anyway, that’s their business. 

Modric is ‘unhappy’ says Garth Crooks in his Tean Of The Week column. I wouldn’t go for Garth’s throat though. I see in the little Croat’s body language he’s got issues. I don’t trust him and therefore I’m just hoping we get as much out of him on the pitch before next summer and then as much off the pitch for him in pounds, shillings and pence.

      As you were dropped on you head as a baby I’ll give you the link

      • Dazza says:

        Come on man, it says he is unhappy with the amount of games in the prem, nothing about any rumblings of discontent about spurs in particular. However, the spurs website does seem to be featuring him a little too much for my suspicious mind.

        • Enorme Nuez says:

          I’m sure Modric along with others are trying to figure out why ‘Arry doesn’t utilise the squad he has. There is no reason a squad that includes Kranjcar, Pienaar, Dos Santos, Pavlyuchenko, Livermore, Rose, Defoe and Corluka, doesn’t use them. Even over the the Christmas period where games came every 3 days, ‘Arry kept the same 11 unless forced into a change. At the same time he should be looking to bring on the likes of Kranjcar, Pienaar and Dos Santos in the second to freshen things up.

    So ratboy should be unhappy, his shot is f*cking woeful. But seriously why is he unhappy? He is part of one of the best teams in the league competing for the title, oh yes the money. Sniffing out the most cash he can find is in his blood. If modric was a woman he would be a wag or a whore

  • Gez says:

    Champions league, will we let him go?

  • ChrisD says:

    And replace him with?….
    Lots of clubs looking for a play maker like Modric (Goetze?), we wouldn’t stand a chance. We need to keep him happy or we’ll end up with an Arteta-esque stop gap replacement.
