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.
Strong words there Joan and Sfer...less of the personal baiting and more of the constructive criticism, please.
Anyway, back to the thread.
I read the article and another like it and basically all the talk of Luka's worth is coming from his agent, not from Harry or Levy. Now I'm not so naive to think that anybody of quality that we have on the books isn't fair game to clubs who have been more succesful than us in the Premier league era. In this case, Modric; we opened ourselves up to all this type of speculation by not finishing in the top 4. Holding on to players who've just tasted big-time football and attracting equally experienced new players to improve the squad is now a more daunting task than if we had made 4th.
I wont be surprised if Modric goes...I'd be more surprised (and thrilled) if he stays to be honest, if he does go I hope we spend the money wisely (and if its part-exchange then I hope we hold out for someone good).
