deadline day

Transfer Window: Arsenal and Man City biding their time?

Ilan – “Hello West Ham!”


A rather terrifying calm has hit deadline day, in scenes not dissimilar to when city traders wait for the overhead clock arms to hit a certain hour, before erupting in a din of hysterical screaming and shouting, as bits of paper fly around the room like confetti at John Terry’s beautiful Blenheim Palace wedding to his lovely wife, Toni. Only, hopefully, with a slightly less depressing outcome.

Current whispers suggest that Spurs have offered £2million for Watford’s keeper, Scott Loach, on the understanding that he’d be coming in as a back-up keeper. West Ham are on the verge of signing the Brazilian striker Ilan from Saint-Etienne, whilst also keeping an eye on both Robbie Keane, and ex-Chelsea man Mateja Kezman.

Wolves have upped the stakes, and are willing to part with around £5million for Hull’s Stephen Hunt. Benjani could yet move from Manchester to the stunning city of Blackburn, where the streets are paved with fresh tarmac.

And Arsenal and Man City are lurking in the shadows like sleeping tramps, ready to lurch upwards at any given moment, shouting and slurring about their inner desires. Arsenal could yet pounce for Loic Remy, with both Lyon and Rennes also keen to land the France international striker.

Whilst City might have another pop at Italy’s infamous maniac Antonio Cassano.

Much more to come…

    There was a time when the PL was capturing the very best of foreign leagues. Now, there is a continuous flow of players who didn’t even make it in less than great clubs of less prestigious leagues. Ilan comes from being released (contract broken by mutual agreement) by the 17th of the French league.
