Shaun Wright-Phillips (for about the third time this season) and Kevin Davies are currently on managerial shortlists.

Actually, scrub that. McFadden is not for sale.

Ayegbini is, though, and someone has bid for him.

Yes, compare the start of this thread with the 'forgetful, guys?' one?

You were outbid.

But you wanted to sell two midfielders at one point.

Number Six

smiley - yikes No I didn't! I wanted to sell Geremi and Alan Smith.

And I'm not sure I was outbid, either smiley - erm Seeing as Blue Brasilian seems to have acquired Shaun Wright-Phillips for 3m, and I bid what you were willing to give me for Geremi plus 1.2m, I can't quite see how that one adds up.

Also, I offered a cash amount plus Alan Smith for Kevin Davies, and seeing as no-one else seems to have acquired him, I'm not sure what's going on there either.

a) I didn't offer you a lot of money for Geremi, as you recall. Besides, Brasilian needs all the help he can get. smiley - winkeye

b) You said you were going to go away and reconsider Kevin Davies after I told you he was crap. smiley - biggrin

Number Six

a) I'm saying 2.8m + 1.2m = 4.0m smiley - tongueout
b) I said I *might* reconsider Kevin Davies, but decided I'd go with it - I thought the deal was still on unless I came back with an actual 'no', so I didn't come back with an actual 'yes' smiley - doh

Your fuzzy logic in b) has totally negated your argument for a)

Besides, you're top of the league, I've had a stressful day and I'm not mucking about with the page now. And 2.8m is far too generous an offer for someone who never plays, anyway.

Geremi *does* play - I saw him on the telly only the other week! He just never scores! And is it really fair to be picking on me just 'cos I'm top of the league at the moment?

I mean, back at Christmas I was more or less dead and buried and had almost given up. Then a couple of my players started performing, I did a bit of nifty work in the transfer market, and things started to come round. So you're saying just 'cos it worked and I'm doing well now, I'm not going to get the players I bid for?

" And is it really fair to be picking on me just 'cos I'm top of the league at the moment?"

Yup. People have been doing it to Man United for nigh on a decade.

If you want the man that much, why not approach Brasilian directly and offer him some cash?

smiley - yikes I'm not Manchester United, I'm more your sort of Norwich City back in the early 90s... it won't last. This might be the only chance I get.

Well, all right, Brasilian can have S W-P. I can see this is going nowhere fast.

But could I still have Kevin Davies? smiley - grovel I mean, no-one else bid for him, did they? I had a quick look at the main PP page and can't see him in anyone's team.

Yes, you can have Kevin Davies. I was giving you a chance to back out before you regretted it, but never mind.

Blue Brasilian

Sorry, I meant to say:

I'll accept Geremi + 1.2mil for Shaun if you're still interested, six.

I will make the changes.

Actually, at that point, I won't.

Number Six no longer owns Geremi, having swapped him for Nobby Solano.

Next, please!
