Swansea buy Gylfi Sigurdsson

In news that will rock the international football community, Swansea City have almost confirmed the £6.8million signing of Gylfi Sigurdsson, who already plays there.

Signing someone you already have on loan is really boring. As any Champ Manager, FIFA or Pro Evo veteran will tell you, half the fun of football is the bit in between where you play games when you get to sign people. They should be signing young rookies with great raw potential but a rough streak that needs to be kicked out of them. Overcoming adversity and finally playing his way into the first team, our young starlet rewards the years of perseverance and trust by his employers by delivering a hat trick in the FA Cup final, running to the manager to celebrate. And somewhere in the middle of that inspirational movie, Fernando Torres fell asleep, waking up while a rerun of '2 pints of lager and a packet of crisps' was on, therefore concluding that the best thing to do with his career is become something that no-one wants to watch. If that show was a person I would honestly have punched it to death.
