“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.
