No-one to Chelsea, Vela to Bolton, and more…
Thanks to Giles Coren in the Daily Mail, The Spoiler has learnt this today…
“In a way, British men are like white people were in Nineties South Africa or young Germans after the Second World War.
“We are expected to go through a period of atonement for the sins of our fathers. To be treated worse than we merit because of crimes previously committed in our name: in this case the crime of feeding, protecting, loving and nurturing women in accordance with our biological imperative.”
YEA! You tell ‘em, Giles! Definitely right. Completely appropriate comparisons.
Anyway, consider this The Spoiler drawing a line under the whole Keys and Gray thing – ___________________________________.
Here’s what we know about transfer things and stuff from other papers…
Chelsea are also like white people in Nineties South Africa or young Germans after the Second World War and have to go through a period of atonement for the sins of their fathers.
According to The Sun, Benfica still think they are dealing with the Chelsea of the mid-noughties and are demanding £30 million for defender David Luiz. The newly frugal Blues won’t go that high so the deal is dead in the water.
Elsewhere, Arsenal are hoping a loan spell at Bolton can do for Carlos Vela what it did for Jack Wilshere and turn him from a promising youngster to an even more promising youngster.
Finally, Edwin van der Sar has announced his retirement. Paul Scholes has announced he doesn’t know what he’s doing next season. The Spoiler reckons he’ll HAVE ONE MORE YEAR!
And definitely finally, The Mirror reckons Paul Konchesky is heading back to Fulham. His mother will be pleased.
