Sunday Transfer Gossip

The SUNDAY MIRROR reports that Watford are on the verge of accepting an £8 million bid for Ashley Young. £8 million for a player I have to admit I had not heard of until this week. He’s a wide right player. I’m sure Yossi will be impressed! They also report that Charlton are now ready to listen to offers above £12 million for Darren Bent. The SUNDAY PEOPLE reports that Derby will try to sign Tyrone Mears this week, while Nigel Reo-Coker is wanted by Middlesbrough and that West Ham are desperate to land Mark Viduka. The NEWS OF THE WORLD reports that Viduka does not want to live in London. The SUNDAY EXPRESS reports that Alexei Smertin doesn’t want to come to West Ham because he “doesn’t fancy a relegation scrap”. The NEWS OF THE WORLD says that Matthew Etherington’s move to Fulham is back on and that Dean Ashton reckons West Ham should never have sacked Alan Pardew. They also say that Blackburn want Teddy Sheringham and Paul Konchesky, while West Ham will offer Harewood or Zamora to Watford to tempt them to part with Ashley Young.

    Never heard of him? I guess you don’t watch England youth games or indeed any of the Championship last season!

    He is amazing, but I guess we need to cash in (as we didn’t when Tommy Smith had his first spell with us, we turned down a multi million pound bid for him to walk away a year or 2 later for nothing!).

    A few million plus Harewood would suit us I think.

    Ashley is too good for you though. He’d be better off at a bigger club. 😉

    I mean you’ll be down with us in the Championship next year, so what’s the point? 😉

    Is Tyrone Mears any good? We could do with some more defensive cover.

    you need some defensive cover???
    West Ham need devensive cover more then anyone at the moment. I can’t believe there talk of getting rid of defenders.!

    Young AND Bent.


    Lucky Hammers!

    The suggestion that NRC would be used as an exchange for Viduka is laughable. I know we’ve got a lot of cash now but giving those two an equal value is a similar stunt to that one the KLF pulled.

    As to the others Mears is no loss, selling Matty would be a massive mistake – need him for when the club is sorted and we can start thinking about attacking games again, I’d be appalled if we sold Harewood – he’s not scoring because the supply this season has been awful – he’s still a brilliant instinctive striker of the ball.

    Teddy and Konch. Try not to let the door hit you on the arse on the way out. Actually do. It might provide a bit more entertainment.

    Thinking about it, and thinking about McCartney’s performance yesterday, it might be an idea to hang onto Konch until we’ve found someone who can play left back. It might be a bit much to expect the Football Genius to slot in there too.
