Football transfer rumours: Tottenham to sign midfielder Patrick Herrmann?

12th October 2012

Today’s pap is a masterclass in citogenesis

Well, things have come to a pretty pass today, dear loyal reader. A combination of international weekend and modern journalism being jiggered means there’s only three rumours today. Three! Dearie me. Still, let’s try to jazz it up the best we can. It’s a TRANSFER TALK TREBLE! It’s a TITTLE-TATTLE TRIFECTA! It’s… a… no. Alliteration can’t disguise this thin farce.

It doesn’t have a crossroads, you’ll be relieved to hear, although we nevertheless managed to sell our soul to the devil for a mastery of blues guitar at the interchange with the M65. Anyway, Bolton Wanderers are hoping to persuade Molde boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to ruin his fledgling career by joining the flailing Horwich giants.
