Another bad day for Meire - [Reissued]

[This post is being reissued as Katrien Meire has paid to have negative articles about her largely cleansed from search engines - no-one should be able to control free information]

Katrien's book-balancing plans were potentially wrecked today when Cardiff City had a transfer embargo placed on them for this transfer window. That explains why the Tony Watt deal hadn't completed already and it leaves Katrien with a potential (undisclosed) £2m gap in her plan. She might want to stay under her stone for a few more days.

I wouldn't jump to any conclusions about Watt returning to help the relegation battle. She can still look to sell him elsewhere and an extended loan deal with Cardiff might also be possible. It does, of course, make the sale of Ademola Lookman appear far more likely, if that isn't already firmly on the cards.

Jose Riga may also see an end to any hopes of additional reinforcements. You have to wonder just what else can go wrong this season and how much more of a disaster Katrien Meire has to preside over before she gets the sack?

Personally, I would love see Watt return as he is the best attacking threat we have and there is zero prospect of us bringing in anyone of his calibre. Not holding my breath.

Getting Watt back is potentially like a new signing. Clearly the most gifted player in the club by a country mile and now Karel has gone maybe some bridge building can be done with Riga.

Just noticed your picture in the top corner. Is that your work? Very impressive. You will have to re-do your stained glass window as well ;-)

Watt and lookman upfront, just a thought oh of course lookman will be sold for next to sod all.
