The Sun Showing Ignorance With Samba Story

The Sun Showing Ignorance With Samba Story

The Sun is surpassing itself in the ignorance and indeed arrogance stakes with a story this morning that Chris Samba is a £10 million target for Tottenham 'we get linked with everyone' Hotspur.

The Sun starts off by saying - 'Harry Redknapp hopes to solve his defensive crisis by signing Blackburn's Christopher Samba in a £10million swoop.

Redknapp has turned to Congo star Samba after his three senior centre-backs were ruled out for the start of the season.'

So far, fair enough. Nothing wrong with that, probably best to leave it at that then hey boys?

Oh whats this, there is more?

The Sun continued - 'Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce will not want to lose 6ft 4in defender Samba but knows his club cannot afford to turn down Spurs' bid'.

Based on what!?!

We have done more or less all our summer business and have taken a large portion of the Roque/Derbyshire transfer money to make sure we don't have to sell again.

So why exactly can we not afford to turn a bid down? Oh thats right - because the Sun hasn't got a clue and is about as patronising as possible to little club and easy target Blackburn Rovers.

Furthermore, Sam Allardyce has mentioned time and time again that no more stars will be leaving.

So the boys at the Sun - please try and do some research before you run a story and stop being so bleeding arrogant.

I wouldn't get too excited - 99% of what you read on the web or the press is bull****. Samba is the 20th centre half Spurs are about to sign this week.

I couldn't mind Samba at Spurs, but for £10m? It looks like something that has been made up. Am I surprised by the Sun, or any of those redtops? Nah. They always put two and two together. It's childish. Cos we stayed in the same Hotel in China as Hull, Harry and Phil Brown had a drink. The following day, we weere going to swap Bent with Michael Turner. Why? Hull needs a striker, and Spurs need a CB. Hilarious. How do these hacks just jump the gun like that. You will have thought 10 year olds wouldn't even reason like that.
