How Is It That Buddle & Findley Are Two of the Most-Talked About Transfer Window Targets in England?
So in the past two weeks Robbie Findley and Edson Buddle have been linked to every English side that is not part of "the Big Four" or owned by an American. According to various U.K. media outlets (which by nature are very* trustworthy) these two have Everton, Birmingham City, Wolverhampton, Stoke City, Nottingham Forest, and Bolton all up on their collective jock right now. Seriously y'all, it's crazy.
Edson I can see, Robbie not as much. But hey out of contract strikers who are under 30 and have World Cup experience aren't too easy to come by so maybe I shouldn't be so shocked that mid-to-lower tier English clubs would want to take a chance on the likes of these two. If you're trying to ball on a budget you could certainly do worse than a player who scored 17 goals in 2010 and a player who...um...Robbie Findley is fast, isn't he?
