What the hell is going on? I know they are set to pocket £40million for Torres, but £35million for Carroll? Really?
Yes the guy is good. Yes he will be an England player into the future. But he could also be the front man in a real life Vinny Jones Mean Machine. He is a bastard. And bastards don't change. Dalglish may believe he can manage him but he will come unstuck sooner or later. Watch that space because Carroll will be head butting the bridge of a nose in it soon!
Assuming, of course, that Newcastle part with him. But can they really turn that sort of offer down? £35million for a player who has scored a grand total of 14 Premiership goals?
It puts our debts into perspective! The total money owed stands at two Any Carrolls and one Scott Parker. Or three Darren Bents and one Robbie Keane! Or 3500 Benni McCarthys!
It looked as if sanity had returned to the transfer market - outside of Manchester City. But not now. Now the game has well and truly gone crazy all over again!
