Gambles Rambles: duplicity and a lack of decency in Maja’s departure

Gambles' Rambles(3)

Josh on the scoresheet again., Sixer inside the programme

Monsieur Salut writes: the club’s statement on the completion of Josh Maja’s move to Bordeaux was short and uninformative. We awaited some thanks, either way.
