This story caught my eye recently on twitter, but sadly it turned out to be a throwaway remark gone wrong!!
Apparently someone on an Everton message board got the wrong end of the stick, took it seriously and thought it bizarre that a small team like Leyton orient could turn down an £8 million fee for a player. We should be so lucky.
My thanks to offthepost.info for the report below.
Afterthought… How many flats can you build for £8 million?
