My question is, does Ramos know who Stewart Downing is? Does he know what type of player he is? Is he a Levy/Comolli signing or has our new manager had some input on this? I wonder how the conversation went....
Comolli: Hi. I got a player for you.
Ramos: A central defender?
Ramos: Another right-back? A central defender?
Comolli: No. No.
Ramos: Defensive midfielder?
Ramos: Keeper!!! Keeper!!!
Ramos: Please, not another...how do you say....sarding...
Ramos: What? What do you have?
Comolli: A left winger.
Ramos: Riiiiiight. That is exactly what we need this moment. Good thinking. Who?
Ramos: dos Downing? Mexican?
Comolli: Nope. From Middlesbrough.
Ramos: (laughs) Oh, you are serious. What are his abilities?
Comolli: He cant beat a man, will never be world-class, sometimes inconsistent but can cross the ball. Will frustrate fans.
Ramos: Ok. A squad player. For backup?
Comolli: No. First teamer. Big signing.
Ramos: How much for this Drowning?
Comolli: £12M. More if we can get Boro to take the money.
Ramos: You are fucking shit at your job, do you know that?
Comolli: Your English has improved.
Ramos: Call me a taxi.
