Hill-Wood confirms Schwarzer bid
June 10, 2010
Speaking to his every trusty chum on the Sports Desk at the Daily Star, Chairman Hill-Wood tells us about Schwarzer and then also goes on to discuss Billy G.
“We have made an enquiry for him and they are not prepared to sell him so we have gone away.
We can only hope they will change their minds, but at the moment it doesn’t look like it.”
Our favourite old Etonian went on to give his viewpoint on the current financial madness surrounding players wages, a direct dig at Gallas’s contract demands.
“He is asking for too much for too long. Players are going to have to learn some time that money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Right, so we can now lay to rest all the moronic posts about Wenger not identifying the goalkeeper position as one of weakness, he clearly has, it is now down to the board to follow through with the contracting of the players the gaffer has highlighted.
I wholeheartedly agree with the signing of a top premiership keeper, the wrong side of 30, as this will do no harm to the growth and development of our young poles, who will both come good in time.
Gallas leaving is no surprise, I wrote on here a couple of months back that I was informed he would link back up with old Chavski boss, Ranieri, at Roma.
