Would Duxbury Now Tell Us The Truth?
Apparently Zola is going cap in hand to Inter to beg for the services of Mario Balotelli. Remember, this was the kid we were after at the beginning of the summer, the one Jose had lost patience with and sent back to train with the juniors because his attitude stank. According to Zola, "There's no place for him at Inter and he's a natural talent. He is extroverted and knows his attitude can upset people, but he's intelligent and still learning to handle situations."
Now anybody is better than nobody but do we really believe an 18 year old with an attitude problem is the answer to our goal scoring woes? How many 18 year old strikers take the Premiership by storm exactly? There was a lot of excitement when we secured the services of another teenager, Nouble, but again, can we trust a kid to score the goals we so desperately need? I don't think so. Again, I have to ask, what will we do if Cole joins Ashton in the treatment room? We would be buggered big time!
I derided Duxbury's interviews as mood management at the time and questioned whether he could be trusted. The rosy picture he painted in those stage managed interviews is looking like so much bull at the moment. It is becoming abundantly clear that we are crippled financially and are trying to fill key positions with loan signings because we don't have two millions to rub together. Dear God, Manchester are not the only City who appear cash rich when compared to ourselves: Stoke and Hull seem to have more muscle in the transfer market than we do! That is a truly desperate state of affairs.
I warned readers of this blog that Duxbury was taking them for a ride and pulling the wool over their eyes. I would love to have the opportunity to interview the guy but I doubt he would agree because I wouldn't share the questions with him before hand and would not smile benignly at the pat answers.
Apparently Duxbury and his cronies monitor this blog along with the others. Well, if you are reading this, how about fronting up and giving us the true picture this time Scotty because I, for one, am sick to death with what appears to be deceit!
