Why are there no links to central midfielders ? Are we keeping our cards close to our chest or do we genuinely have nothing anywhere near ? We are one injury away from no competition in this area and not being able to affect a game in this area.

Las Vegas also hosts the biggest machine gun shoot in the USA. People are allowed to take their own weapons to this. A machine gun is fully automatic. The point stands that certain types and calibre of weapon are too widely available.

Even more cash is more important to him now than career. Nobody in Europe will be scrutinising his career from now on because they won’t be interested in it.
