Stupidity of football and agents


The Horse with no Name
Oct 27, 2003
The wilds of Kent
Just had an email from Barnet FC informing me about a young winger currently available.

Firstly: the agent just emailed info@barnetfc and emailed it for the Attention of Giuliano Grazioli, so I assume there has been no contact beforehand?
Second: AFC Wimbledon for a trial? He's just emailed Barnet
Third: Barnet have just emailed it to me - I'm 'Paul' in their address book - without any comments.

Dear Giuliano Grazioli

Currently I am representing Donovan Simmonds, a striker/winger formerly of Coventry and Kilmarnock

Donovan is currently out of contract and looking for a new club, I have attached his CV for you to take a look at.

Please contact me on 0******** to discuss any possibilities of Donovan coming down to AFC Wimbledon for a trial.

Ps Please be aware that the statistical information on wikipedia is incorrect, please do not hesitate to contact the respective clubs to confirm.

Kind Regards

Jamie Sanneh

Now, I could let Barnet know theyve emailed it to me, I could inform Southend about this guy. Or I could let Donovan know that his agent is a beer short of a sixpack.
