Maybe I was wrong about his talent, and he was more better than a lozer although according to some of Town's supporter Ben is not even better for a League One side.
For the last couple days, maybe this blog is the only one who feels that the speculation about the signing of 17 years-old left back from Swindon Town is actually just a rumour and he is not really having a contract negotiation today. I know that the Official site is always late when reporting something, but the press not.
But, until the fat lady sing I'm still not buy it. Sam Allardyce also said today that he will not be panicked into making any rush buys in the January transfer window, and didn't see why he must do it today either. He realise about the effects of African Cup will have on his present squad, but he will see any loan players are he most suitable for him next month.
“There is only one focus: the players have to be better than what we have already got,” said Allardyce quoted from the Journal. He also deny any reports to have in touch with Manchester City regarding Owen’s situation yesterday.
“If you sign a player with the purpose of covering for another player that generally means you rarely use them because they are not up to the required Premier League level. You have to be careful.” Allardyce added more.
“This is the most difficult window to deal in and I keep saying this, it is a hugely flawed system. It stops me progressing the club, it stops me being more successful and it stops you at critical times overcoming injury problems in what can be crucial positions.”
As many have known before, Chris Mort insists there will be no more funds for Big Sam in January, and although Mr. Mort will backing Allardyce all the way down, he has give the command that Allardyce should use what he has now at the club before the Newcastle's board giving him another green light to buy.
“There will be huge speculation on who is coming in or (going) out and another one has popped up which is an utter load of rubbish, which is Michael Owen.”
Big Sam have also mentioned about if he is going to buy any new players when the money finally being released, he will go and find the one in this country who have the Premier League experience so it is not going to be another mistake.
