First we had Joe Jordan, then Gordon "is a Moron" McQueen, more recently Eric "Seagull" Cantona and finally Alan Smith - all crowd favourites at Elland Road and all poached in their prime by Manchester United, and all unforgiven. Now it seems the exodus hasn't quite finished. Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be ready to make a move for Aaron Lennon in the summer. Aaron is unsettled in London we are told and a move back North would suit him, though to the other side of the Pennines is a matter of some disappointment to Leeds fans.
Aaron is a real-life Leeds United fan and the move to Spurs was only caused by the ridiculous contract given to him by the Leeds United plc Board - which thank God is now no more, MTABIHFE (may they all burn in hell for eternity) - which meant that his wage seemed to double every three games until he was 96! Basically, Leeds couldn't afford to play their own player in the Championship.
As with Paul Robinson Spurs took full financial advantage of our relative situations in another cut-price deal. Unfortunately, for the London "always-the-bridesmaid" club, the one thing they couldn't manipulate is the fact that London is a filthy, third-world, shit-hole where you even have to commute to the local shops. The only reasons for living in London are that English isn't your first language or the money. But what if you can get more money outside the confines of the looney-bin we call our capital city? Well why stay at Tottenham unless you wanna end your career with no medals?
The price for making Leeds Utd fans see another favourite in the hated red shirt? Apparently Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to off-load Mikael Silvestre and some dosh (used $1 dollar bills from the Bank of Glazer).
Breaking news: Man Utd have bought Elland Road from under Ken Bates' nose. They don't want it - they just want to paint it, and the pitch inside, RED to piss-off Leeds fans some more.
