I learnt yesterday that Ilunga allegedly turned down a loan to Celtic, preferring to spend the season being busy doing nothing rather than playing semi competitive football in the land of Macbeth. What a disgrace this guy is!
Apparently, he wasn't prepared to go out on a 6 month loan, it had to be for the full season. Why? Because then he would have to put in a shift, trying to secure a contract for the second half of the year. Far better to bed down a deal for 12 months and then, well bed down for the year.
Like Dyer, Ilunga goes into hibernation in August and only wakes up in July. A few friendlies are fine, but when the real action commences, Rita doesn't fancy it. Doctor Evil didn't quite grasp this at first and gave the guy a chance. And how was he rewarded? By three goals from the left in two home games costing us three crucial points.
We shipped out Dyer when his contract eventually expired and it is odds on that we will be stuck with the money sucking Rita leech until he is out of contract too. And to think, in his first season he was in the running for Hammer of the Year. But he was playing for that lucrative contract then, wasn't he?
