Is Vic there?

It's not often you see a home Victor at Upton Park. But we've secured a loan deal for Victor Obinna, the Nigerian striker, from Inter Milan. Obinna was on loan at Malaga last season.

His scoring record is only one in four, but on the face of it he has an impressive pedigree, having won a title at Inter and 30 caps for Nigeria including two appearances in the last World Cup. Hopefuly this doesn't mean we're selling Carlton Cole...

Memo to Grant: this summer we've signed six players in Hitzlsperger, Barrera, Piquionne, Reid, Ben Haim and now Obinna, none of whom are right-backs. Now I don't want to worry you old chap, but if we don't sign a right-back by Sep 1 we'll be relegated.

When you say 'hopefully this doesn't mean we're selling Carlton Cole', surely you jest? Cole is to goal scoring what Tony Blair is to being a bloody good bloke.
