Sometimes football transfers are like finding a cupcake you didn't know you had.
You're all 'Oh wow, I'm sooooo going to enjoy eating this, yum yum'.
Then you drop the cake on the floor and the dog slurps it up.
You feel empty inside, even though you never went to the kitchen for the cake. You have other options to fulfil your appetite. You went in there for a sandwich. But you can't see past the cupcake. It was there, in your grasp. And now it's gone. You no longer want a sandwich.
You feel sad.
Then you see a pack of Oreo cookies. You eat one and it makes you happy. You take another two and you're positively beaming.
You leave the kitchen satisfied. You know there's always be something in there to fill a hole. Maybe next time you'll just opt for the sandwich.
Cupcakes are over-rated.
