Erm, yeah, we’ll have Joe Hart back now, suggest Man City
Hart – coming or going? He doesn’t know.
Ahh, the old give/borrow conundrum – everyone’s been there. Banks are particularly studied in the art of making a lend feel like a gift, as they woo you into accepting a bundle of cash, before suddenly turning on you a few months later, and demanding that you pay it back NOW. Those sweet sticky voices now curt and unforgiving.
Anyway, the news from today’s most era-defining daily newspapers (The Guardian, The Daily Mail) is that Man City have decided that, actually, they want Joe Hart back. Today if possible.
With Given now out for the rest of the campaign, and at least two of his possible replacements also howling on the treatment table, the word on the street is that the prospect of facing the run-in with either Gunner Neilsen – the Faroe Islander who looks like a lesser member of Kasabian – or a 16-year-old called Loris Karius, is hardly floating any Man City onions.
Hence, they will today be begging Premier League bosses to please, PLEASE, let them have Joe Hart back for the rest of the season.
And, rather surprisingly, Birmingham’s vice president, Peter Pannu, doesn’t seem too bothered. He said this:
”I understand their concerns. I am very sympathetic to City and if I was Garry Cook I would already have been on the phone.”
Question is, at this stage of the season, is this fair? No doubt Spurs and Villa fans mightn’t think so.
