I have just been doing the newpaper review on the BBC News Channel and have had a chance to rifle through some of the Sunday paper back pages. There are some weird and wonderful rumours, the most unlikely of which is that we will be selling Anton to Newcastle and taking Damien Duff in part exchange, with Matty and Boa Morte also being flogged elsewhere. Spurs want Matthew Upson and we are also chasing Joe Mattock of Leicester City.
There doesn’t seem to be anything new regarding Zamora and Pantsil’s moves to Fulham. Fulham are now also trying to get Andy Johnson.
There are also now rumours that Sunderland are trying for McCartney and Carlton Cole for a joint fee of £10 million. While I don’t want to see Stella go, that’s not bad money.
Rumour is that Stephen Carr, who is out of contract at Newcastle, has been training at Chadwell Heath this week. He’s a decent player who would be good cover at right back. However, Faubert can play there too, so I am not sure we need another one.
There, is that enough to be going on with? 🙂
