So the truth is out! Far from sitting on their dildos, messers Sullivan, Gold and Brady were moving heaven and earth on the last day of the window trying to sign a striker. Ba, Lukaku and Bendtner were all on the shopping list, but sadly all three deals fell at the final hurdle.
Two questions arise from this, of course. The first is, why did we wait until the last moment before making a move? It was obvious to everybody that we needed an understudy for Carroll and that Maiga wasn't up to the job, so why, oh why, oh why did we dilly and dally, dally and dilly and lose our way at home to Stoke?
And the second is, what exactly happened to the Financial Fair Play regulations on the final day of the window which supposedly meant that we couldn't sign anybody until a player was sold? As I said all along, that was obviously bollocks. Unless Princess Brady is telling porkies now.
So, we got exactly what we deserved. Sweet FA. And if relegation is the consequence then we know who to blame.
