The enigmatic duo!?

So Curbs tells us he's bid for two premiership players. "Who could they be?" is the question on every Charlton fan's lips. Well this Charlton fan thinks it could go one of three ways.
Scenario 1: All goes to plan and we get two top class premiership players. Strikers? We can only hope. One of the names being thrown around is Earnshaw. Now that Ellington has signed for WBA, this is all the more likely following Curbs' "it could depend on those clubs signing other players" comment. Lets call him 'Signing number 1.' Now for Number 2. Taking Curbs' comments into account we COULD put 2 and 2 together and come up a Tottenham number 10! Robbie Keane. Jermaine Jenas is the key to this possibilty. Should he go to White hart lane, you would think spurs would offload a player, and with the rumours being Robbie Keane to Charlton, we can only hope!
Scenario 2: What has been referred to as the 'Robbie Mustoe syndrom.' Two premiership players?! Great! The hopes are raised only to find out we've signed some Premiership deadwood. Colin Cooper from Boro Perhaps!? Fingers crossed that doesn't happen!
Scenario 3: September 1st comes around and ther's no new arrival, let alone two! It's 3months later and we're all sitting around in Floyd's when someone pipes up, "remember when Curbs mentioned those two premiership players? Whatever happened to that!?" When Alan is asked he replies "eh!? no. I don't remember saying that"
We've seen it before....think back to the start of the summer when we were promised "a new signing every week for the next four weeks." didn't happen, BUT the club came good and we got the signins in the end.
So come on Mr Curbishley, Mr Murray and the board. Lets sign a couple of Robbies!
