Wingers' World 13 - Unlucky for Some

Wingers' World 13 - Unlucky for Some

Yay! It's wednesday. which can mean only one thing... another non-commital statement from The Arsenal club captain as to where he sees his future lying. Joy oh joy.

Nonetheless, we are nothing if not an optimistic bunch, we even think the spuds might win the league next year. Well, actually, no we don't. Optimistic we may be, but we ain't mad.

Here's some news, you kerrrayzee love cats...



Birmingham To Get More Steel in Magnate Brum deal

Paper reports suggest that Birmingham City are to be the subject of a takeover bid by Indian-born billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, a steel magnate worth twice as much as Roman Abramovich.

Mittal has apparently made an enquiry about buying the club from David Sullivan and David and Ralph Gold.

We should give him a couple of posh seats to the Grove double quick, let's not allow him to make a mistake of such monumental proportions and pump money into a club, where it would only be spent by Scottish manager and part-time historical-figure-impersonator, Steve the Bruce.

whilst this may all be going on, Steve the Bruce has had a £5m offer for Baggies pair, Jason Koumas and Diomansy Kamara, as have Fulham, who it is said offered £2m more than Bruce.



No-one sings the blues like Shinawatra

The expected takeover of Manchester Citeh by Thaksin Shinawatra, former Thai prime minister, may have hit a terminal hitch.

The majority of Shinawatra's assets have been frozen, as he awaits possible corruption charges, and if he gets through that, then the Premier League would initiate fit-and-proper-persons regulations if he were convicted of fraud in his back home.

If this happens, expect Citeh to be fined £5.5m, and if you listen carefully, you'd be able to hear the whops of joy from Soho Square, and cries of, 'We've finally paid off Sven!!!'



Inter get involved in a bit of Argie Bargie:

Internazionale president has declared his interest in signing Carlos Tevez from West Ham, saying, 'It's true, we really like the player, he has the qualities and the character we need.'

If they intend to bid for his services, funding for the player could be made from the sales of Alvaro Recoba and Adriano.

If Inter do indeed offload Adriano, may i suggest they do it in a price-per-kilo scheme, as they would surely set a new world record transfer fee for the chunky Brazilian forward...



Alan Is Morose-ette:

Alan Smith, (the narky blonde one from oop t'yorkshire way, not the former Arsenal league-leading-goalscorer and line-leader from the days of George Graham's days...), who plays Manchester and Home Counties United, is seeking assurances over his future at the club.

Smith told The Sun, which is apparently a newspaper, 'If they are going to sell me, I'd like to know. But I won't find out unless I get to speak to the manager, if you're no longer wanted, then you have to consider your options.'

Smith could be said to be an English player of disputable quality, and one who will never quite cut the mustard as a top, top English player. If this is the case, expect the Tiny Totts to be in like a shot with a bid...



And with that, it's time for the lights to dim, the credits to roll, and another episode to draw to a conclusion.

Todays episode of Wingers' World was brought to you in association with the letter 'sigma' - now i ain't NEVER seen that kind of shizzle on Sesame Street... word!
