Hmmmm. So Tony and Neil have had a long distance chat - on Twatter, MSN or Skype no doubt given they are free of charge - and the outcome is that Warnock doesn't want £5m to buy a striker after all. £5m? What sort of Premiership striker did he hope to get for £5m exactly?
But that's not the point. The point is, he doesn't need a new striker apparently. He has other priorities.
But I thought he was sitting on a huge transfer war chest courtesy of money bags Mittal and Flash Fernandes. Has £15m really shrunken to £5m already? More piles than piles of dosh it seems!
Or are we talking 4 or 5 new players at £5m apiece in January? But surely if that was the case, £5m would be set aside in case the 34 year old superstar Helguson gets injured.
But hang on, what did Warnock say about January? "I think you’ve got to be careful – sometimes January is not the right time".
Hmmm. Still there's always the shiny new stadium to look forward to Grrrrs!
