Middlesborough in Stallion Star Tapping Shocker–From BBC News

BBC news can today confirm for definite that it's a possibility that Owen Bellamy, a Stallions star player, might have been "tapped" by Middlesborough. Maybe.
The following report is by our intrepid reporter, Tusky O'Piece:
"I was round the back of a restaurant rooting through the skips and bins, when I noticed [Owen] Bellamy going in. I stopped my nefarious activities and followed him. After waiting for a few seconds and gazing round, he went and talked to a member of staff. I heard him asking questions about a "big Mac"- surely none other than Boro supremo, "big" Steve McClaren. I moved in closer, (and I don't mean the German footballer) to hear more. Bellamy was then asked a question which sounded like "With Fries?", but my ears were muffled by the fake rubber plant I was hiding behind. I then realised he must have been asked "With de Vries?"- Middlesborough were making a move for the Leicester City striker too! And the scandal was increased when Bellamy said "yes" – managers Baker and Levein will surely be distraught. To confound his situation, he asked "Could I have a shake?" Not satisfied with discussing terms without his clubs permission, he wanted to conclude the deal there and then! But stallions fans shouldn't worry just yet. Bellamy was informed there would be "No shakes" as "the machine was broken." What this last enigmatic statement means is open for discussion. Possibly it was a sideswipe at the current K5 stipulation, the "machine" being the Premier League's rules. Bellamy then left with a brown paper bag- containing his first advance on his signing fee? Who knows? I don't."

The FA has asked for a full enquiry.
