So DE isn't at the meeting tonight because he has flown out with Pep and Faz to Europe to scout. According to the Oxford Mail.
Surely a footballing matter unless they are signing someone there and then?
DE does not have to be there!
Well I don't know any of the details (I suspect the same goes for you?) but what if there is a large sum being offered for the player and DE wants to tie up the deal there and then before the player is poached by another club? I suspect if he is putting up anywhere near half a million or more of effectively his own money he may actually want to see the player too? Not sure what there is to complain about without knowing the facts. Personally I like that we are actively seeking new players. Would you be happier if we weren't?
They mentioned that Eales was there to talk to parents of the player. Must be a youngster.
