The Offside Flag

Yep, I've decided to name and tag all the posts where I knock down faulty transfer rumours and imagined storylines. Why? Well it's because I'm kiiiinduva a goofy ass for my own amusement. Erm, I mean, so they're easier to find for reference.

So on to today's business; once again, we return to England, native home of the silly season facepalm. It was brought to my attention that the Twitter-sphere has been buzzing for a few days with talk about UK reports of hot Arsenal interest in FC Dallas winger/painter Brek Shea.

Forgive me use of technical terms, but.... hogwash. I can assure you no European clubs are banging at his door right now. Nothing to see here, let's move along.

Just because I am a transfer muppet, I was curious to find out your Top 3 American players who you think will be transferred next (besides Cameron)

Greg Seltzer and NSC: giving the American Internet Soccer Community a paper bag to breathe into when hyperventilating since 200x (I'm not sure when you opened for business).

I'm kinda all over the Twitter-sphere and I completely missed this one.

Jacob Klinger said...

You'd think they'd get more creative. What next, Freddy Adu to Manchester United? Please.

Brian said...

"An American site reports that Manchester United may or may not be interested in Freddy Adu"

Look what you've done, Jacob.

You know, I wouldn't even be surprised.

Greg Seltzer said...

Gosh... Twitter says all sorts of things, huh?

Unknown said...

yeah, sigh. or maybe i was just throwing that out there to coax more crumbs :)

Greg Seltzer said...

Heh. Like I said, there's a few clubs out of England and Italy sniffing around pretty good. That's all I'm giving out for now.

all quiet on the western front. a couple of teaser post, removed by author, no relation to arther treachers.

so the news features, cameron to stoke, it seems pretty official, like junior to roma official. not lock, stock and fing lot, but pretty close, maybe 4/5ths of a dot.

deuce to arsenal anyone? trade the cottage not for the kop, but for something a little closer to the top. personally, liverpool seems the wiser move, strictly football speaking.

i cant speak for everyone, but my money is on eddie johnson to light up some jamaican blunt holding, vancouver playing, dread heads. he should be in a very high gear come september, meanwhile jozy be sucking down fries..... dipped in mayonnaise, why? because he resides in the low lands, or the high lands, or high times, or something.
