For a few minutes there, rumours were wildly circulating on Twitter that Sunderland were going to make a bid for Charles N'Zogbia. They were going to pay actual money to take N'Zogbia off of our wage bill. I don't begrudge N'Zogbia his contract (it was, after all, the club's fault for signing) but getting it gone would be a nice little piece of business.
