    Mido and Out!

    He's gone!

    If this is to be believed

    "Chairman Mamdouh Abbas exerted lots of efforts to wrap up the deal.

    "We paid Middlesbrough £4million to acquire Mido's services. We can also sign him permanently next summer if we pay £1million to the English side"

    If this is not a translation error and they are paying 4m up front and then 1m later (hopefully not 1m upfront and 4m later which seems more likely!) Then this is great business by GS.

    5m for Mido, I would never have believed it would be possible to recoup so much money on the guy (plus 100k for not training!).

    Does anyone know his address so we can all send him a big box of cakes to aid his preseason at his new club?

    Maybe we could send some chou pastries, boom boom!

    • I agree Doug... good business if it is confirmed. I read elsewhere CSK Moscow are interested in Pogatetz and Southgate is prepared to let him go. Apart from Wheater and Bates, both crocked, just who is he prepared to hang on to. I would have thought Mad Dog would have been a necessity in the contact sport which is the Championship. I can see Boro fielding a team of young 'uns from the academy.
