If Beano Joins Stoke...
...what will that say about the guy? I have been a very harsh critic and received plenty of flack because of it. I think the guy is a legend in his own mind and is lazy and selfish. There I've said it.
People blame Curbishley and his fitness team but they forget that Ashton arrived from Norwich with more bandages about his thighs than an Egyptian Mummy. He wasn't fit then and hasn't been fit since - well not in his own mind at least. Beano is the new Darren Anderton, a sicknote who needs a lie down as soon as he feels the slightest twinge. He looks after number 9 and says sod the rest of you.
I feel that Zola has his number. He came out in April and said he hoped to see Beano in action before the end of the season. Woken from his slumbers, Beano promptly informed journalists that he would only return when HE was good and ready. We didn't see him of course, whereas Carlton demonstrated his desire by meeting his target return date.
Even when he has played, Beano has looked laboured and out of condition to me. In fact, for a couple of months he looked positively fat. If he is as good as his supporters claim, why is he being linked with Stoke City exactly? Why aren't the Mancs, the Cockyfools or Unreal City showing any interest?
I said back in December that Cole would collect more England caps than Beano and the orgsters scoffed. Cole is already ahead and not many Stoke City players get selected for England. How must Beano be feeling at the moment? A superstar striker at Stoke City? Not quite what he imagined. But still, providing the treatment room is well equipped and cosy, I'm sure that Primadeano will be happy!
