Dean Ashton Update
Sorry but I haven't got one. On Sunday and Monday, we read his obituaries. He was more dead and buried as a footballer than Kirk Cobain. Come Thursday, there is still no word from the club outside of Zola's very uncertain sounding, "I hope he will be back and until they tell me something different, I am hoping that way. We spoke to him some time ago, and he came one day to training with us, and as I said, I am hopeful."
Now you have to wonder why it is that Zola has not spoken to Ashton for "some time" and why Dean has only been in to training for "one day". This suggests that we are still a million miles away from seeing Ashton back playing and Zola's tentative sounding "As far I I know he is still trying to do his rehabilitation" is hardly reassuring.
More importantly, why haven't the club and Ashton himself come out to deny the rumours? If somebody had written me off in this way in a national newspaper, I would have something to say about it, I can tell you. And if this was the Official Site, there would have been a confirmation or a denial by now I can assure you.
Everybody, it seems is in the dark. How does that benefit anybody?
