one man, three names, a catchy acronym, there’s only one topic to discuss - ALF.
Rotherham United striker Adam Le Fondre’s ‘will-he-won’t-he’ move to the Owls has got everyone talking, sometimes wrongly, but talking never-the-less.
Handsworth on thestar.co.uk wrote: “I understand that Le Fondre has in fact put in a transfer request and that Reading and Coventry are after him. If he goes to either of those clubs Mr M (Manderic) and Gary M (Megson) should be ashamed of themselves. When Mr M said he would spend he did not tell us provided it was only pennies.”
Sterland02 replied: “Why are we SO obsessed with Le Fondre? not proven goalscorer at this level. And why shouldn’t he sign for Reading or Coventry, who are a league higher than us. He won’t come to us, and that is not a bad thing.”
Unitedite Londonrdblade weighed in: “I’ve just walked into a car showroon and offered them 3 grand for a 5 grand car and the didn’t except (sic) it. Don’t they know who I am? It was only a small showroom as well, who do they think they are?”
And PaulSheffield retorted: “LondonBlade, over the years I have bought many cars and I have NEVER EVER paid the asking price. Throwing money around like it’s confetti only ends up getting you in massive debt... oh hang on a minute you guys know all about that seeing as you owe 70 mill out :-)”
Defeat for the Blades in the Carling Cup still had DexterMorgan happy with a David Moyes quote on thestar.co.uk: “‘They’re a good side and they pass the ball well’ How long is it since someone of note said that about SUFC?”
On Twitter a bit of banter developed when @RotherhamMad said: “‘@CraigSWFC: We won the second half! #swfc’. That’s good then. #concentrateontheleague.” To which @CraigSWFC replied: Concentrating on signing your only half-decent player I think! #swfc
