Ferd Degree

Farewell, then Anton, or maybe not. So far this summer, according to the media, Anton Ferdinand has been almost sold to Newcastle, Aston Villa and now Sunderland. Did Curbs lose patience after Grannygate? The Faces nightclub court case? Or was it when Anton forgot to mark Berbatov twice against Spurs? Yet Ferdinand was also outstanding for the first two thirds of last season.

We are certainly well stocked with almost fit centre backs, with Calum “head on a stick” Davenport returning, James Collins, who had a tremendous finale to the Great Escape season, Danny Gabbidon and the promising James Tomkins. What I do know is that this being West Ham, if Ferdinand does leave he’ll be brilliant and form an unbeatable England partnership with brother Rio, before being sold on to Chelsea for £40 million and of course we won't get a percentage of any sell-on fee.

Although he’ll never be as good as Christian Dailly.
