haha seth johson asked for £35,000 a week as a joke and got it.
at least out of all these denilson was a joy to watch.
Francis Jeffers wasn't a bad player when he was younger, his ankles were mad from glass. When he came to the Mighty Sheffield Wednesday, every time he touched the ball, you could see he was thinking 2 moves ahead of the rest of his teammates. But because of that, he had no choice but to keep the ball himself and become the target of some nasty tackles. As a result, he played about 3 games in as many years.
Wednesday reject. And believe me, your career is definitely over if even we don't want you!
