East End Paupers Pay West End Agents!
Good to know that, despite our financial woes, we can still cobble together enough cash to line the pockets of those leeches on the game, the football agents. We may be fourth from bottom in the Premiership table, suggesting that the quality of our signings isn't that great, but we can surely feel proud of our position in the league table for fees paid to agents: a very respectable 7th no less, paying almost double what those misers Everton have parted company with, more than double what Villa forked out and not so very far behind the figure paid by Champions League qualifiers Arsenal! Oh, and not forgetting, almost three times what Manchester United paid!
I think a couple of people deserve a huge round of applause in the light of this! Step forward Nani and take a bow for your excellent links around Europe! I wonder how much Savio's agent pocketed? And the agents of Lopez and Tristan for that matter!
And, of course, we must not forget the "Banker", our very own Scotty Duxbury, he who agrees to pay the piper! Well done sir! Good to see that it isn't just "oral cuddles" you dispense with such aplomb!
Isn't it a shame that we can't scrap this silly business of deciding final league positions based on daft things like points and simply allocate positions on the basis of how well clubs look after the needs of the guys who make the game work - the wonderful agents!
