Bloody hell, they’re at it again. Whoever we went for last summer, (Elmander, Tekke et al) Everton were there watching our back and supposedly waiting with a bid. The thing at the time was that neither side won and none of the transfers happened. Now it’s getting a little irritating. We bid for Johnson; bosh they sign him. Chelsea accept our bid for Huth, bang they’re right on top of us.
It’s a little like moving into a new flat, where the existing tenants seem a little over friendly. Then they start turning up with your haircut, and buying the same clothes as you. Next thing you know they’re getting off with girls that you’ve put all the groundwork in with.
The obvious suggestion then is to start sniffing around players, we would never sign, encourage Moyes to chat up Lee Trundle, say. If West Brom would sign a player just to weaken a rival’s squad it’s not that daft an idea.
