Good Thursday morning everyone. In case you missed it, yesterday Sepp Blatter was re-elected in what some are calling a shameful excuse of an election that makes a mockery of democracy. Some people are saying that, I am saying nothing of the sort. Instead I am focusing on the transfer market and all of the exciting things happening in it.
And now the news
Napoli initially wanted him for 8 million which given his performance this season is justifiable. However, given all that has happened in his personal life it is understandable that Wilson had a bad season. I personally think that even for the 15 million Spurs want for him that Napoli will be getting their money's worth.
It did help a bit.
The price tag is 18 million pounds, I doubt he ends up in Manchester and the linking of him to Spurs is Madrid employing a tactic I call the old "just say Tottenham want him to drive up the price" trick.
What's going on around SB Nation after the jump
In case you missed the
cluster @#$% questionable refereeing in Seattle the other day, take a gander at this. I found the events described to be very infuriating interesting.
My girlfriend hates this, because it's very very true. I am not sure if this also applies to Football Manager.
Coming Home Newcastle have been producing some truly excellent pieces on the silly season. They profile every single player that has been linked to them. It's a little bit awesome.
