The papers have the usual transfer rumours today. I think the only new one is Marlon and Hayden Mullins and £4 million being offered to Charlton in exchange for Darren Bent. The downside of this is that like Dean Ashton, he is out until mid-late February. Despite that, it would have to be a good deal, I’d say, especially if we really are planning for the future.
I’ve had more positive feedback on Ashley Young, a player I admit I wasn’t aware of until our interest in him. However, I suspect we may be hijacked by someone else. According to someone who left a message in the Comments he’s a Spurs supporter. However, if he plays wide right, you’d have thought that Spurs were adequately served in that position by Aaron Lennon. Having said that, after the Fulham game, you’d say that about us and Yossi. However, I often wonder if Yossi isn’t better on the left. He’s never really played there much for us as Etherington has been there, but I wonder if that isn’t where he really wants to play. Or am I talking rubbish?
