So Konchesky, Harewood, Reo Coker and Etherington were left out of today’s team. This will naturally lead to speculation that they’re all about to be sold. In Reo Coker’s case if we can get more than £7 million for him we should take it. He can be a superb player, as we say for most of last season, but his head was turned in August and he’s never been the same since. The rumour is that Pardew wants Harewood and Mullins and we are prepared to offer them to him plus £5 million in return for Darren Bent. The trouble is that Bent is out for a month – but nthe thought of him playing alongside Dean Ashton is juicy to say the least.
Four on their way?
