Transfer talk

Some odd rumours in the transfer market. "West Ham have had an £11.2m bid for Nice striker Loic Remy turned down, according to Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud," claims BBC.sport.com. If the financial situation is as bad as Sullivan claims it seems strange to be bidding this sort of money.

Meanwhile we're also rumoured to be after Brazil's wonderkid Naymur for a season before he goes to a "bigger club". Do we really want to be a feeder club? And he seems to be partly owned by a third party consortium, which you might think we'd avoid after Tevezgate.

The fear is that Sullivan and Gold will insist on marquee signings rather than the more sensible cheaper buys who ended up at Portsmouth under Grant. Bargains can still be found abroad; Roy Hodgson picked up Hangerland for £2 million.

Meanwhile Aston Villa are sniffing around Scott Parker… and we still need a right-back.
