Think you’ll find Ali and VVD we’re on the hit list before Phil manufactured his own leavening, by refusing to play or train feigning a back injury, that never stopped him from playing once he moved. He wasn’t sold to finance the other two purchases.
Why do you make this sh*t up to fuel your personal addenda ?
Your post was alright until that last sentence.
1) I responded to a post which said without having to sell Phil, both VVD and Ali wouldn’t have joined us.
2) my response was if we have used an owner funded model we could ideally have all Phil, VVD and Ali. Like it or not, there will be a group of fans who no matter what, want to keep all the best Human Resources on the team disregarding money, players’ desire, player value and depreciation etc. and my response echoed this group of fans. It’s an opinion, though may seem extreme or ridiculous to you but is not wrong. If our owner is a Sheikh, Phil would stay if the oil sheikh makes him the highest paid player in the world. This view isn’t wrong. None of us could say for sure if Phil would still stay or go.
3) your post is saying we’d have gone for VVD and Ali anyway, and Phil who didn’t want to play for us, would leave no matter what. That’s your opinion and your alternative view. Nothing wrong and that’s very fine. You believe that he wasn’t sold to finance VVD and Ali. That’s ok too. There are those who believe the books need to balance and there are those who believe otherwise. The truth lies with Mike Edwards, Mike Gordon and his acquisition team. Nobody really knows. It’s all good till here.
I take issue with your last sentence. Me made what sh*t up? And what’s my agenda? Who have I hurt in this little post of mine? What do you not like about this post? I have posted a view, I have explained and clarified that post. In a way, I’ve addressed your last question. Now, clarify your last sentence by explaining what sh*t did I make up, who did I accuse and what personal agenda do I have? Who did you think I intended to destroy?
The three posts show a diversity of views, all of which deserve respect and regard from each of their viewpoints. Now please respond and go on to explain with that one post I made, how am I your fellow red, is inciting something that I don’t even understand, but only you do. Clarify please.
And none of our posts would change how FSG or Jürgen would manage things on and off the pitch.
