There was a sullen sadness around the plush suburb of Maryhill this morning after the mighty Jags, all-conquering Euro giants, and one of the world’s richest clubs, Jags Disunited, failed to land Portuguese legend Eusebio on the last day of the January transfer window.
Fans took to social media to voice their anger at the board after it emerged they couldn’t raise the £45 quid signing on fee for the Mozambique-born genius who recently topped the scoring charts at the 1966 World Cup.
A spokesperson for the official Jags supporters’ bus that leaves from Maryhill Road every Saturday without any MOT or insurance, let his disappointment be clear when he said: “This is a farce. If the board couldn’t stump up the £45 for Eusebio then they should have done what most of us would do and steal it from the social club kitty funds.”
Meanwhile, it is expected the board are to make an announcement that might help heal the transfer window blues.
It is understood talks are underway to bring in two prospects from England who will join the Jags Academy.
Youth starlets Rodney Marsh and Frank Worthington drove up to Glasgow with their parents to thrash out a £3 per week pocket money deal that will see the youngsters appear for the U13s.
The deal is expected to go through without any problems after the club’s chief scout offered the parents a £10 voucher to spend in B&M and half an Aldi bag containing their own branded Prosecco.
