Some Old News & Some Possibly New

OK, so this is old news to all of you but it seems Darren Bent has turned down the opportunity to join West Ham. Reading between the lines of Eggy's statements on the club website it appears Bent was asking for a ridiculous wage. I can't say I'm overly disappointed that the deal fell through.

According to Sky Sports Benni McCarthy is pleased to be associated with West Ham again. Although linked with West Ham last summer he signed for Blackburn but it seems he is unhappy with life up north.

I'm delighted to discover that Tevez hasn't left the club yet but a move away from West Ham seems increasingly likely. Sky Sports are today reporting on what seems like a concerted campaign by Inter to woo the Argentinian. They quote Inter club captain Javier Zanetti as saying,

"It would be a great signing for us because he is a player that never gives up. He would be ideal for Inter, he has great talent and we really hope he will join us."

In Spain however the papers believe he is joining the Spanish Champions. They are claiming today that Real Madrid have had talks with Kia Joorabchian, about signing Tevez.

Hi :)

Great to have you back and posting again. Hope Spain was good to you. I can't understand Bent's thinking here. Out of the top sides, only the big 4 and Tottenham would be able to afford his price. Chelsea and Arsenal seem set with their strike options while Tottenham and Liverpool are balking at the 17 million price tag. Man U seems to be the only one left and they're linked with Gudjohnsen and Saviola both of which would be cheaper.

Charlton's not going to drop the price, so he's basically stuck in the Championship. It's surprising how overvalued the English players continue to be.

On another note: I've started a new footy website: Fan State. I'd be thrilled if you took a look and posted links to your articles there. I'm not asking for a link to my site, though that'd be a great help :)

Welcome back.
