So Mike Williamson has signed on loan for a month.
After selling our player of the year and captain Richard Stearman to a championship rival and replacing with this, then you’ll forgive me for being a little deflated by the news.
I.E. this whole scenario, like a few others in this underwhelming season, was completely avoidable.
After raising such concerns with the Express & Star’s Tim Spiers on twitter last night, I was effectively told to stop whinging and give the bloke a chance.
From this, a Pied Piper stream of invective followed, using a word that is banded about more liberally than the term ‘pant-wetter.’
Yes folks, it appears I am a fickle pant wetter.
The insinuation seems that any other supporters daring to express concerns over this arrival are also fickle pant-wetters too, and should gleefully celebrate the news as a beacon of progression.
Spiers tweeted this: ‘Getting lots of negative comments, saying NUFC are delighted. Well how many were pleased when Saville left? Doing a great job for Millwall.’
I replied with this: ‘It’s as if you’re suggesting Wolves fans have no right to be cynical. We sold Stearman for this? Should I buy some champagne?’
And then the religious cult kicked in, essentially blaming fans for daring to express their consternation on Twitter, as if the social networking site is fair game to amplify the opinions of the entire world – including ISIS followers – but not a Wolves fan questioning the loan signing of Mike Williamson.
One even inferred that we should be grateful, being as Gerard Pique didn’t fancy the move.
Don’t you just love being patronised? Or being called fickle?
Anyway, I won’t be booing at Mike Williamson as was implied and will be getting behind him as I do every player in a gold shirt I see.
I just had an opinion that this deal, coupled with the Stearman sale, is illogical.
I was wondering what your opinion was? Don’t worry, I won’t tell you that you’re a fickle fan in a glib statement of superiority, whatever your thoughts.
