Lie - "We don’t envisage anyone leaving in January"

Derek Llambias quotes reported on 24/12/2009

“We don’t envisage anyone leaving in January because we want to make sure Chris has the players he needs to get us back up. Chris has given us things to work on in January in terms of signing players – and we are trying to make those things happen. We will have to see, but we want to help and Mike will put the money in to help if Chris feels that it gives the club a better chance of returning to the Premier League.”

"Geremi Leaves Toon For Turkey"
 
Just to be clear, I have no problem whatsoever with getting rid of Geremi as he's an expensive bench warmer. However, as predicted, it hasn't taken long for another public statement from the club to be exposed as a lie. A lie that will only be forgiveable if the £60,000 a week reduction in the wage bill secured by the deal is reinvested in the first team to ensure we can compete in the Premier League next year.
