I had a sneaking suspicion that there was a hardcore of you out there that were itching to fill the supposed gap left by the sale of Bonzo with angst. Which is double down ironic given the harum-scarum manner in which the KOBF (King Of Brain Farts) operated in.
Serge Aurier mustn’t be confused with a player who has immediately acclimatised to the Premier League and won all the fans over. Mind you, I’m not wholly convinced ‘all the fans’ realise quite how bloody brilliant Davinson Sanchez has been…
Frenchman Ivorian said:
“I think my reputation made four or five big European sides afraid. I was negotiating with Barcelona, very advanced negotiations. And Barcelona’s people were not sure if I came here things would be different.”
The sane Barca spokesperson replied:
“We never sat down with the player or his representative, they wanted to sit down with us but we never did anything,”
My considered opinion is ‘apart from virgins, who actually cares what went on or did not go on?!!‘
Adapting to the Premier League is rarely an instantaneous thing. For every foreign transfer that was a resounding success in England, there were possibly 5 or 6 that were blood curdling flops. Flopanistas.
Will Aurier be as big for Tottenham as his self belief is – who knows?
I wish him to be all he can be for us which hopefully goes without saying. Serge has a superb CV and Gladys tipped us off some while ago to the fact that both Poch and Levy warmed to the man’s character.
If ambulance chasing is your thing, then good luck to you. You may need it, whitey.
