This may well set the tone for the forthcoming transfer window. Gladys believes we’ve agreed terms for Burnley star Michael Keane …as have Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United.
The English 24 year old has been linked with a number of clubs and one has to wonder what might swing it for him to go one way or another. Money is an obvious one, but it may also depend upon how important first team football is to the boy.
Apologies for the late posting. It’s been a strange day.
I ordered a corner sofa some weeks ago and this morning I got a call from the driver. ‘We’re just setting off, are you in?’ ‘Yes mate, I’m in. Keep on trucking’.
A while later a truck turns up and I have to mention at this stage I am now located in a most rural setting. In my postcode I think there may be 4 or possibly fiver other people. Converted barn overlooking about 7 acres of farmland.
So the truck gets here and the man says, ‘corner sofa unit for you, I believe’.
We go inside and confirm where it is to go in the space I’ve more or less cleared. I abhor manual labour and ask the man if there was to be a drink in it for him, would he mind awfully taking a remaining two-piece upstairs as upon reflection, it’s not needed.
The chap and his mate do what they do and shunt the thing into an upstairs bedroom. They return to their van and we make smalltalk whilst they shuffle stuff around in the back of the truck
At this moment, another truck turns up.
A redheaded fella just out the cab, walks up to us and says ‘corner sofa unit for you, sir’.
I look at him, the lads from the first truck look at him and then I say ‘these trucks aren’t from the same company are they?’
Both drivers say ‘no’ in unison.
The most recent guy to arrive has a digital hand-held thing like the Amazon boys have and reels off the name, the address and even the model of the couch.
One of the first guys to arrive says ‘I’ll have to fetch the paperwork.’
He returns from his truck and confirms that his corner sofa is for the barn next door.
The sofas were from different firms alright, both the same style and only about three shades different to each other.
Bizarre isn’t in it.
