I see the manager of my favorite football club has told the big Premier League clubs to take a hike if they are coveting any of his players. Of course they are drooling over a few Swans–they are liable to get their high-priced tails handed to them this season if things keep rolling as they have.
Ran into a bunch of Sunderland chaps at the Sounders match last night. Nice folks in red and white striped shirts. Welcomed them to America. Wished them luck from Sunday on forward. They spoke of admiration for Swansea football.
The Premier League may be tilted toward the top four, or six, or five. But it could be worse. It could be Germany or France or Italy.
Though clearly not the case in this instance, an adamant refusal to sell is often a prelude to an eventual sale. The Montero to United rumor is typical transfer window nonsense based on a one-off tweet from Rio Ferdinand.
