Ok punters. I need to feel the love. Don’t tell me on twitter you like my site. Don’t claim to be my friend and promise to comment and then not comment thereby proving you are not my friend. Get involved and get commenting. The internet doesn’t always need to be about anonymity and self-loathing – it can be fun too!
We at coconutsandalcohol like to think of ourselves as a community, even if we (I) are (am) self-deluded and flying in the face of all the evidence. No blogger is an island, they say, but sob sob sometimes it feels that way. I may have to go and prostitute myself to the nearest blog aggregating site if things carry on this way. Is that what you want? Is it?
So – this is my official January transfer window post. New posts may come and go, but this is the one you want to return to again and again to chew the fat and spread your rumours and spout your shit, basically.
At time of writing it’s looking like the following are possible moves:
Bentley to Newcastle.
Keane to Birmingham.
Beckham to us.
Frankly, I’d be happy with all of these, in decreasing order.
Bentley just needs to go. It’s not ever going to happen for him at Spurs, and I genuinely wish him well even if he has been a major disappointment.
I’m very sad about the story of Keane. There’s something Shakespearean about his tragedy. Something epic in his travails. Something depressing about his demise.
Mind you, I doubt MacBeth was on £60,000 a week, so goodbye Robbie, thanks for the memories. No – not those memories – the earlier ones. Yes, even your rubbish 15-degrees-out somersault archery celebration, you great big silly twat. See you at half time in 2016, maybe.
I’m a bit sad that he’s looking like going to Birmingham, a club I store in a file under my bed called “clubs I don’t like and don’t want Robbie Keane to join”. But I also want £7million, and if I can’t have that in a file under my bed, I might as well have it in the club coffers. The club coffers are too big to be stored under my bed, and despite my frequent use of the word ‘we’ in relation to Tottenham, my understanding is that I am legally forbidden access to it.
Beckham to Tottenham. Yeah, why not? Well – why? But, why not? These mini-loans have worked before – Larsson to Man Utd, and, umm, they seemed to like him at Milan. I don’t doubt he brings something to the squad in terms of attitude, spirit, etc., and I don’t mind bringing him on with ten minutes to go when little Aaron needs a rest. And I admit that I quite like the idea of such an icon of world football and pants descending on lil’ ol’ us for a spell. I just can’t get that excited about it from a football point of view. If, however, you check out my other blog ohmigoditsdavidbeckhaminnit.blogspot.com , you’ll see I’m very excited about it from a celebrity angle.
Ok – so. Does anyone have any thoughts on any transfer speculation? Who we’re linked with. Who we want. Who’s realistic. Who’s pie in the bloomin’ sky. Does anyone have any thoughts whatsoever?
