The Truth about Goats

Thousands of refugees left stranded on transfer day


Despite the UK’s transfer window proving to be the richest ever, mainland Europe remains swamped with migrants unable to find a Premiership club. While many had hoped to be snapped up by the indiscriminate purchasing power of West Ham FC, most face the prospect of hunger, abuse or possibly playing for Stoke.

More migrants need to look like this

More migrants need to look like this

More than 160,000 people have arrived in Greece this year, all hoping to secure long term contracts with a Champions League contender. One refugee said: ‘We see Brazilians with a great free-kick fast-tracked through customs, but do they offer a shortage occupation or have an EU passport? I just need food and shelter for my family. To do this I would be happy to be on the subs bench or play in the reserves’.

Strict EU rules restrict the movement of economic migrants such as anyone playing in Vanarama National League South; but they do allow those who have a legitimate fear of persecution, as was in the case of Ashley Cole. In particular, the media have focused on one Spanish goalkeeper stuck in war torn Manchester, all because his family in Madrid have been unable to secure the proper paperwork.

Curiously Nigel Farage has remained reticent about this particular £870m influx of migrants. While, ironically, Chelsea fans have bemoaned the lack of foreigners joining their club this window, but still remain happy to maintain an exclusion zone around the Paris Metro. A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: ‘If you want entry into Britain, we advise Syrians to spend more time on their ball control, less time looking for fresh water’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
