Swap shop

So little time, so many rumours.

Spurs' rumoured swap offer of Darren Bent for Craig Bellamy seems worth considering to me. A player four years younger, worth £16 million two years ago and less injury prone and booking-prone than Bellers isn't a bad deal. Would also like Michael Johnson if we did do any deal with City. But encouraging that so far we have resisted overtures for the big four of Upson, Green, Bellers and Parker.

Sad to see Matty go, will always remember his goal against Ipswich in the play-off semi and his run making Ashton's goal in the FA Cup Final. If he hadn't taken to gambling who knows what he might have achieved...

As for Boa Morte turning down Hull because they can't match his wages, it seems typical of the modern day footballer who values money over actually getting first-team football, that is unless he feels his West Ham shirt is like a second skin.

And now someone says Newcastle have offered £4 million for Lucas Neill... which I would say take. Anything to fund our bid for Kaka...
