Not the ‘fax machine’ this time

From the BBC, who in turn, quote The Athletic

Leicester City agreed a deal for Southampton's chief of scouting and recruitment Martyn Glover in May.
However Glover's contract runs until the end of the summer transfer window and Southampton are keen to avoid handing him over to Leicester until then.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leicester The Athletic's Rob Tanner said: "It is such an important role when you are a club like Leicester competing where they want to compete, on the budgets they have - recruitment has to be spot on.
"They can't afford another summer of disappointment as the blueprint for Leicester is to recruit smartly. Get these players in and develop them and then you are strong and can challenge and try to disrupt the big six as Brendan always says.
"It is such an important role so not having somebody in that position is an issue for them but there are other good people at the club who can step up and do the role in the interim. But it is not ideal. That is why they fought so hard to get Glover in early doors so he can oversee this transfer window."

Are you telling me that Martyn Glover and Susan Whelan can't call each other on the phone at home in the evening and discuss transfer strategy and who to go for etc etc on the QT?

I think that’s exactly what will happen. They can hardly keep him gagged in a cell until September

Any possible moves have been discussed for months. There is no Christmas period in football, just an all year round business.

I don't understand all the cigarette "jokes".
Can someone please explain?
I think mine are references rather than “jokes” (sic), there are plenty of other posts that suggest comparisons to ‘Mike Bassett’ or ‘David Brent’ on the roof but are usually when the subject is Brendan Rodgers and not Leicester City Football Club itself.

We should defo have tried to get someone who was out of work, and without a notice period, than go for a guy who is clearly well thought of (so much so they won't release him early).

Maybe he will buy Bertrand and Vestergard before he leaves 🤷🏻‍♂️
