There May Just Have Been A Defining Moment At Upton Park
News is filtering out of Upton Park of what may or may not have been a defining and momentous event in the club's history. Talks may or may not be on going in relation to the sale of Dean Ashton to Stoke. Beano may or may not have been fit to play last season and may or may not be back in training now. He may even be running and jumping. But then again, he may not. Dyer may or may not be striving to get back to fitness and Gabbidon may also be about to make a playing return. Parker and Dixon have been working on their fitness so they may be able to kick a ball in August; but then again, they may not. And let's not forget Behrami, he may or may not be ready to return for the start of the new season.
Lucas Neill is also in Limbo, with one foot in and one foot out of the club. Will he go or will he stay, that is the question. That and, do we really care? Upson may or may not be leaving and his house may or may not be up for sale. Green may be in negotiations to extend his contract but with more than two years to run, there may not be any hurry on the part of the club to offer him more money when there is no contractual need. We have definitely signed Jimenez, well definitely maybe because there is an option to buy or not buy which may or may not be exercised in 12 months time. Mancini may join us, but then again, he may not. We may fancy Gudjohnsen but then again we may not; and if we do fancy him, we may or may not be able to meet his wage demands. Oh, and exciting news this, we may have landed an understudy keeper who shipped God knows how many goals last season as Southampton were relegated from the Fizzy Pop. Bowyer may well have joined Birmingham but has it yet been definitely confirmed? Quashie may be on his way somewhere and so may Davenport; some club may be stupid enough to sign them!
Then there is the issue of the ownership. Straumer may or may not survive the banking crisis and we may or may not be up for sale. There may or may not be a buyer waiting in the wings and that buyer may be Indian or may be an American. Who knows, he may be both! That would explain the Apache rumours - they had nothing to do with Tevez after all! Of course Mr Tevez may have been about to rejoin us but that, it seems, was never going to happen. Maybe that's Sod's Law!
Dear God, that Duxbury interview was so revealing - everything is so crystal clear now isn't it? Maybe, just maybe, that was the purpose.
