Look, the last thing I ever dreamt of doing, was to come on here with any kind of transfer rumour that originated from south-west France.
However, whilst I was at the market this morning I was signalled out by Flavlo Balotti, a Corsican neighbour of mine. Having seen the Southend United banner on my van, he was keen to tell me a story that he was sure would interest me. Apparently, his aunt, who is a hairdresser in Lyon, has Coupet as one of her clients.
She says that he is a great admirer of Flavs and that his favourite cassette is Darryl's performance against Man.U (which was shown on Canal + here) and .....that he watches it over and over again. He feels that he has gone as far as he can go with OL and is looking to develop his career. You're not going to believe this, but according to Flavlo's aunt, taking up the role of understudy to Flavs, is one of the best ways he sees as breaking into the English Football League. I assure you that this one has legs on it......or as they say down here.....'le bruit court'
