Should We Let Tottenham Take The Jimmy Riddle?
Apparently Tootatthem are sniffing around our number one target, preparing a bid of £10m for Jimenez. Now is 'Arry taking the piss, is this just spoiling tactics from the Brown Manila Envelope King as he desperately struggles to retain goal difference superiority over little old bankrupt West Ham, or is this Jimmy Riddle the real deal?
I must admit that I don't know much about the guy but isn't that significant? I didn't know much about Di Michele either, or Dos Santos, or Roman Pavlova or a whole host of Jimmy Foreigners who are recruited to play in our Premiership. £10m sounds a lot to me in the current market (ignoring the worlds of Real Madrid and Unreal City)and I'm not sure he would be a wise purchase.
On the other hand, we know that Darren Bent can do it in the Prem because he has a proven track record. 'Arry doesn't fancy him - but then 'Arry doesn't want to be associated with anything bent does he? So my solution, let 'Arry take the piss and try to solve the Jimmy Riddle whilst we take Bent off his hands and team him up with Carlton Cole. I reckon £6m could land him and, to close the deal, 'Arry might even throw in his goal scoring wife as part of the bargain!
