We watched the last couple of hours of the transfer window on Sky Sports last Tuesday, and did you get the idea the excitement is being created with just a little bit too much hype? 😀
We’d love to make a comic sketch of what we saw – but there’s this kind of thing that was going on – names are fictitous to protect the inoocent – and to protect us. 😀
Here’s a typical 3 minutes of what we heard and saw:
“We are hearing that Arsene Wenger is keen on him, but there are also reports that Alex Ferguson may also put in a late bid.”
“And reports in Milan suggest that Jose Mourinho may also be keen on this player, although we hear Jose was picking his kids up from school and got lost” “This could now have a big impact to Inter’s season”
“Oh, how exciting this all is, and to think there’s just 16 minutes left when the window will slam shut for these 3 clubs to make their move – isn’t this just so exiting.”
“Who will bid, will they bid, what will the bid be, who will win – will anyone be able to get him in ths short time left – we don’t know any of the answers – but isn’t this so exciting!”
“And John, we’re hearing down at Portsmouth they have 8 players still lined up to add to the 6 they’ve already signed this morning, but whether they can get the 6 through the door and the papers to the FA in 14 minutes – sorry make that 13 minutes – is dubious.”
“Oh and nwe’re getting news just in from the south coast club that their fax has jammed – and they are searcjing for another quickly.”
“Isn’t this exciting as we now have 12.5 minutes left, and there’s hectic action going on all over England – well except in Newcastle of course where the last reports we had on newcastle was that Mike Ashley ws taking a nap m- but thta was 3 hours ago.”
“Ken – get me another strong coffee please – I’ll need it in the last 12.5 minutes of the window – no make that 12 minutes – oh isn‘t this so exciting?”
Was it just us, or was this just a little bit over the top? 😀
It was almost like getting all the gossip Sports Journalists together including this on Sunday, and have them talk about what their latest stories are going to be, and seeing who could out do the other.
This is not meant to be a serious story so take it with a pinch of sale – and maybe a strong cup of coffee. On further reflection don’t do that bacause that concoction would probably makes you sick.
