Unfortunately, this article isn’t quite as sweet and palatable as the retro chewy mint and not just because of the quality of the writer.

Allegedly, Taylor was on Shearer’s list of ‘untouchables’ but considering Beye, Owen and Bassong were apparently also on it, that would seem to hold little sway within the transfer decision-making.
