Having a Lafferty
There are suggestions in todays tabloids that Mick McCarthy has tabled a £4 million bid for Burnley's Kyle Lafferty.
That's Kyle '13 goals in 65 full appearances and 35 as sub' Lafferty.
The clue is in the surname.
Ys, he's still young. Yes, hes scored at International level, but does that really justify splashing out £4 million on him?
Thats 80% of a Jo Lescott. 125% of a Kenny Miller. Three and a half Freddy Eastwoods. Three and a half SEB's for that matter.
Highly rated or not, I cant help feeling that we could get a lot more for our money, like a player with a track record of scoring for a start.
If this one goes through I may join the dark side and start ranting about McCarthy madness.
Four million quid? I'm going for a lie down.
