Words used by Gillingham’s Steve Evans to describe the Addicks bid of £100,000 for their midfielder Kyle Dempsey on Monday.
With just one day left of the summer transfer window I truly hope that those two words don’t haunt us and we go to bed tomorrow night with them rattling around our heads.
Insulting nonsense 🤔
Last season ended on May 9th, 85 days ago. Now here we are at the 24th hour with a squad still well short of quality and depth. Nigel Adkins talked of a “quite interesting three days” on Saturday evening, but now we simply need it to be a really bloody interesting day!
Everyone has their opinions on what is required. I often thought Lee Bowyer had too many players, although with our injury record it never seemed to be enough, but I’m rather a leaner squad, but I do think we need a striker and a left back minimum.
A goalkeeper will wait as Adkins alluded to, and he may well take a gamble on Deji Elerewe, who is not even on a pro-contract yet, but with Inniss a divot away from the physio’s table, another center-back has to be a necessity let alone a priority.
Not adding a defender in January was inexcusable and did for our promotion chances last season.
Dempsey from Gillingham is interesting. Not sure we need another central midfielder unless Gilbey won’t be 100% anytime soon, although Watson looks to be more of a feature than Adkins expected. Plus so far no sign of Harry Arter, which is a little odd.
I like the look of Dempsey though as I do their 21-year centre-back Jack Tucker, but negotiating with Evans and Scally maybe a note too far for even our very own guitar hero.
