Transfer Talk

Cheryl Cole update, Spurs fancy Fabiano, and more

More big football news…

Big Football

In a hot showbusiness story that reads more like a weird dream, Amir Kahn went for dinner with Cheryl Cole not so long ago, and she told him that she was faking a relationship to keep the paparazzi at bay. You can catch up on that particular nugget here.

Meanwhile, here’s what we know about transfer news, thanks to the likes of The Daily Mail, The Daily Star, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Guardian, and the Daily Independent

Whimpers can be heard coming from Tottenham Hotspur, and it’s not just Peter Crouch weeping into a pillow. With a nervous home leg against Young Boys looming on the horizon, the money men are agonising over whether they can really afford to splash out £15million on Luis Fabiano.

Word has it that a good Champions League showing would be the football equivalent of a thumbs up for the deal.

Incidentally, talking of Peter Crouch - if more of these sub-Clancy tarts come out of the woodwork, would it be worth renaming him Peter COUCH? Being that lots of girls would have sat on top of him… no?… anyone?… oh, you know what, sod off! Honestly, what’s the point?

In other mind blowing transfer news, Chelsea are still superkeen to land “the new Drogba” (Romelu Lukaku) to go with their “new Essien” (Ramires). And a hunch suggests that someone somewhere will under strict orders to find a beautiful little pony to eventually replace Frankie Lamps.

Whilst, up in Liverpool – bypassing Birmingham, past James Milner’s empty bedsit – Mascherano can be heard growling and barking in his sleep. His move to Inter isn’t looking quite as likely as it once was.

In two word news:

Given, Arsenal.

Bridge, Liverpool.

That is all.

    Doesn’t make sense to sign Fabiano, based on our CL showing! Sevilla played him yesterday in the CL so he’s cup tied!

    Yeh Park Lane 67, but they all are cup tied, Suarez, Fabiano, Dzeko who else we going to get, Bellamy has gone…… Remy has just signed for Marseille.
    Forlan according to everyone is too old???
    We will end up with bluddy Carlton Cole, we should sign Fabiano or Suarez and just play them in the league games which is equally as important and play 4-5-1 in europe with Crouch upfront.

    The only one of our strikers who looks like scoring is Giovani and he is a winger, I dont know where Pavs goal came from the other day but that was a one off.

    Apparently Fabiano only becomes cup-tied if seville actually qualify for the group stages so he could yet still play in the competition with us if he does sign. And even if he is cup tied, Jay Spurs is right, who else are we going to get with the equivalent quality? It will just be good as it is playing in the champions league. Don’t expect us to win it. Even qualifying for the knockout stages would be an achievement in itself for our first champions league stint [provided we beat young boys of course]. But the striker and central defence situation is getting frustrating. We need to sort it out in this window!

    I liked the couch bit…and does anyone really think they will loose to Young Boys? Not a great situation to be in, but I don’t think at home they will lose.
