Our experience with Colin and Humpty, guys almost-fresh off the back of automatic promotion (and who'd go on to win it again a few years later in Colin's case) showed us that. It's been 20+ years since fat Sam had to make do with the kind of resources he'd have here, it's a dead cert that he couldn't be bothered with it as a 60-odd year old egomaniac multi millionaire. Even if we somehow managed to tempt him (e.g. by offering him something absurd like £10m or a small stake in the club if he somehow got us up) I very much doubt he'd be any good.
Exactly. Does anybody on here seriously believe it's at all possible? Fuck sake.
Well in fairness I'm sure the guy would work anywhere if the price was right, literally anywhere.
