The current transfer window ends on Friday, 31st August 2012 at 12 a.m. that night. It is also when the next Blue Moon is due. Check out
Is this an omen?
Our Snout has been over to the Jodrell Bank radio telescope in Cheshire to see if we'll be making any more signings before the clock times out and the window slams shut until January, 2013.
Unfortunately Jodrell Bank telescope is owned by the Scam Bank, Wall Street, New York, local manager Mr. Rip Off. He told Snouty we'd be lucky to buy a tin of corned beef in the next thirty one days, never mind Lionel Messi or Robin van Persie.
It turns out Rip Off is now a Man City fan after a short spell supporting Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona. Sitteh fans have stopped singing 'Blue Moon' these days. Now they sing any song from 'Fiddler on the Roof.'
Scam Bank have opened new branches in Moscow and Beijing too. Snouty wonders why.
Will it be a Blue Moon before we win another trophy?
