50 Shades Of Jim White

Vide Cor Meum ushers in the first strands of morning light.

He has been preparing for this day from the moment he survived an Amyl Nitrate overdose twenty minutes after the last transfer window closed. Gently woken from a medically induced coma at an undisclosed location, a woozy middle aged man takes his first few sips of nuromuscular blockers in solution.

So here we are once again then. I was toying with the idea of a live blog but to be honest until someone makes one that is actually ‘liver’ than this format there’s little point. So this page will be with us until 2300hrs and then a new blog with detailed analysis of where we are tomorrow morning will be published, tomorrow morning. 

The news about the hiccup on the Loris deal cause heated angst to be sprayed at Levy & Co. with fire extinguisher pressure. I don’t have a problem with opinion, but today may prove too action packed for comments with rude words in to be tweaked and salvaged from moderation. So perhaps weigh up the loss of impact your expletive has with an asterisk compared with the loss of impact of the entire comment never being read.

So what might happen?

Well, Moutinho is very likely if want him to be our most expensive signing ever.

‘Porto is an extremely difficult club to deal with. I don’t think he is a player we can afford. I have never hidden that he is a player of tremendous qualities – there are only a few players who can come in straight away to a team and have a direct impact.

Only world-class players do that and he is certainly one of them but it doesn’t mean it’s within our reach.’

Villas-Boas yesterday.

I think we are most likely to land Daniel Sturridge. And that’s my punt. The Club may well be playing a straight bat on this whole striker business, but they know that aside from managing the expectations of the angry mob supporters, Defoe and Adebayor isn’t all that much to get excited about. It doesn’t obviously smack of Champions League qualification.

Berbatov anyone?

What becomes of the broken hearted? See you at close of play. BIOYC!

      Could be that Levy will put one over Jol again.

      It must be personal.

      • Thepin says:

        More likely we are still owed an installment and MUFOFF are trig to tidy up a loose end.

        • Smoked Salmon says:

          Im more inclined to believe that Fergies comment was…. I have no idea where he is, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was at the lodge begging to go back to spurs.

          He could do a job, but my heart is a step removed from him. Id rather have Llorente cheers, but would be a better signing than Saha

      • Harry Hotspur says:

        Interesting ‘dynamic’ set up there, alright…

      • jfdit says:

        I can’t believe we’d entertain that toe rag again

        he was a great player but he treated us with contempt

        let him rot @ fulham

        • Smoked Salmon says:

          I have no doubt that he will do a great job for whoever he signs. he won’t rot at fulham, I Imagine he’d thrive. What you should be hoping for is that he rots at Utd.

    break a leg!

  • JoshySpur says:

    I’d 100% take Berbatov back. My love for that cheery Bulgarian never died. Obviously, I’d prefer Llorente, but yeah… It’s Levy Time (I hope).


  • Hartley says:

    I’d take Modric from Real Madrid…. :sideways:

  • Winston wolf says:

    It appears VDV had gone always a legend to me, looking forward to the drama unfolding helicopter & fax machine a go go. Would take berbs back in heart beat

    • UnkleKev says:

      Hopefully this will provide the extra bit of cash needed to bring in Moutinho.

      And I know Berbatov isn’t exactly flavour of the month in these here parts, but having him playing infront of a midfield three of Sandro, Moutinho and Dembele (with Bale and A N Other either side of him)…

      Oh, my…

    • Phil McAvity says:

      I will be gutted if VDV leaves, he has his flaws but is still a class player in my eyes. It would soften the blow somewhat though if the money raised from his sale was put towards Moutinho.

      Stock up on the beers, it’s going to be a long day!!

      • Hartley says:

        I’m with you Phil….. :cwy: especially if ***** and Bentley are still on the payroll

    • Dev says:

      VDV Legend – for 2 seasons, when his 2nd season was average at best? Easily pleased….
