Well said John- as usual!
I don't think its about 'Arry or Levy being liars! I would love Levy to simply state 'Luka Modric is not for sale at any price' but that leaves a lot of room for Luka himself to make Levy look like an idiot.
If Luka demands a move, what do we do then? it is so destructive having a want a way player in a dressing room Re: Bergertop.
I would hate to see Luka leave, but if Citch or Chavs make an offer of £40 mil + Johnson/Sturridge, I think Levy would have a very difficult decision to make!
After all we have to run as a business! Citeh and Chavs don't.
If an offer like that emerges with a high quality player coming in the other direction then Levy is likely to break lily white hearts and allow Luka to talk to these Vaccumous entities posing as football clubs! - Only slightly bitter!
To simplify- I don't think its a case of lying! I think its a case, that Levy knows anything can happen in football and if he adamantly denies any Luka speculation, then he leaves himself open for embarassment, if player power kicks in and Luka demands a move!
What a warped mind Joan has IMO. So much vitriol and hatred.
What did she expect Arry or Levy to say "Yes of course Modric is for sale - come on give us your best offer"!! Unless a manager has made up their mind they don't need a particular player, they are ALL going to say the same thing, not just Arry/Levy.
By saying is he not for sale they are trying to put bidders off and at the very least letting them know they will have to pay top dollar to get him. That is basic good commercial business acumen.
I don't want to lose him but, having seen Sturridge play the other night (he was the only good thing in the game) if we have to sell him then a deal with Sturridge coming to us would make the pill easier to swallow.
It would also stop the constant dilema of how do you play VDV and MOdric in the same formation. Not a great silver lining but I am clutching at straws here.

This is not gonna be popular but as appetising as a deal with Sturridge included is I'd have Burgertop back in a flash. I don't really get why SAF would let him go - joint top-scorer last season - but I'd have him back over ANY of our strikers.
not vitriol or hatred sfer, nor even a warped mind. just bitter experience of life. the reassurances that he's not for sale are to keep the simple-minded, like yourself, content for people like 'arry and levy know that simple-minded souls are credulous idiots at heart. at the same time such protests send a signal to chelsea and man u, that says 'we're lying of course, you know the game, what you have to say to the turnstilers to keep them happy!' so make us an offer. and so it goes on. ends up with modric sold, £35 million in the bank and idiots like you saying, well they had no choice at the end, did they? who are we playing first game next season? and 'arry & levy grin.
