The problem with Eagles playing so well,most recenly in front of the cameras at White Hart Lane this week, is the attention it gets from unwanted poachers.It is of course inevitable that with Chris Eagles catching the eye of the big boys, the rumours would continue to fly again during the transfer window.
The latest comes from the Daily Mirror, who today have reported that Middlesborough could be the latest Premier League side to consider putting in a bid for the player.
The rumour earlier in the season was that it was West Brom, currently propping up the Premier League who could be interested in bringing our star player to the Hawthorns this month and that has not been ruled out in the Mirror article which goes on to state that Middlesbrough will face competition not just from West Brom but also Hull City.
Owen Coyle and the board will simply have to hope that any club in this transfer madness of a month do not offer any silly money we 'simply cant refuse' or that Eagles and his agent don't start doing an 'Andy Gray' forcing the club into a corner.
For heaven's sake Burnley just for once do not sell and use the excuse 'It's a Good Bit of Business'. How many fans would be totally cheesed off to once more see our side plummet down the table and once more finish midtable when this season is our best chance of promotion in ages? What effect would that have on gates and the fans faith in the club's ambition?
The problem also is that with selling any key player in this farcical scramble in January, we have to be careful with timing.
If a deal is done too late in the month, we would have little time to bring anybody else in and by then only the dregs could be left anyway and we would be forced to consider loans again.
Remember what it felt like when we first saw the photo above? (provided courtesy of Burnley FC with thanks)
How ridiculous it would be and virtually a complete waste of time signing him for him to go in under six months
Half-a-season Burnley? No,it's time for summat new!!
