Maybe Koeman could act as an intermediary.
This puts "going Dutch" into a whole new light. Daters beware.
Where were you when I needed you years ago?
I put no stock in the veracity of this article since it's just seem to be a poorly-translated repost of some likely-fabricated rumor, however I still feel the need to post it as an example of how clubs are becoming more....um....creative with their payment structures for players in these hard times.
Atlético’s latest offer for Dest includes crack for FC Barcelona
(it might also be a case of the My Pillow guy suddenly deciding to spend whatever's left of his fortune on a soccer team, then falling off the wagon right before the transfer season)
Well now I know where Damon Esquire went...
I'm certain I've posted this elsewhere but I always love to regal my in-laws with how bad all things Dutch are:
Dutch door - half a door
Dutch date - you pay
In Dutch - in trouble
Dutch cure - suicide
Dutch courage - drunk
Dutch comfort - "it could be worse..."
Dutch leave - awol
Dutch widow - sex worker
Dutch betting - hedging your bets
Dutch-uncle - not an uncle, dressing you down
Dutch gold - fake bad gold leaf
Dutch Concert - drunk Dutchmen making noise
(They love this schtick in Sneek btw, because they think they're Frysk, not Dutch...)
Ok, as you were...
Is this the part where I tell you that people called Germans Dutch as a corruption of Deutsch?
The Dutch use that excuse all the time - I call it the "Dutch excuse."
I read that article and have no idea what the "offer" is, bogus rumor or not.
You mean to tell me that Pennsylvania Dutch are not Dutch at all?
What is that? A dictionary from the 1950's?
Who uses those words anymore?
No way can I see Dest going to Athletico Madrid, but he is shockingly in frame still to POSSIBLY move this window......and it is an absurd strategic move by Barcelona.
IIRC, they immigrated to the US from the region around Heidelberg.
auf Deutsch, Pennsylvania Deutsch
Or Pennsylvanian. They all moved to New York in the last 25 years.
Yes, primarily from the area know as Palitinate or Rheinland or Rhein-phalz.
Made a hell of a swing set for the kid.
The last bit is news to me. If true, it suggests continued major interest, probably even now.
And pretty much anything sold in my local farmer's market.
I've forgotten the rules on tapping up/tampering, but is this sort of thing allowed?
Let’s talk about this once Dest is safely settled elsewhere. Until then, ixnay on the amperingtay alktay.
Hadn't seen this posted. From the Telegraph:
Barcelona would be prepared to send Sergino Dest on an initial loan with a view to a permanent move. The fact the 21 year-old can play at right-back, as well as left-back, with Reece James also injured, makes him an interesting proposition [for Chelsea].
Or a straight trade for Miazga!
The gamble for Dest would be that James does not come back as quickly or he loses a step. Because James before injury was freakin' good.
I would certainly take my chances with Alves breaking down before I would beating an inform james
Yeah, Chelsea seems dubious with James and Chilwell blocking him...plus they're kind of an easily distractible, vibes-only club.
