Rumours, Lies and Damn Lies

The Daily Mirror and The Sun say that Portsmouth are set to snap up Nolberto Solano. Solano has been released on a free by West Ham. There are also some reports that Chivas USA and LA Galaxy are interested in the 34 year-old. However Solano's desire to be in or near London for family reasons would suggest those reports are wide of the mark.

Various sources claim that West Ham, Bolton and Portsmouth are chasing Newcastle old boy Stephen Carr.

Other rumours say that Sunderland manager Roy Keane has set his sights on West Ham forward Carlton Cole as he prepares for life without key front man Kenwyne Jones. Jones looks set to miss six months of the season after being injured in Trinidad and Tobago’s friendly against England.

The fact that we are "chasing" a 31 year old centerback absolutely frightens the hell out of me. Let's hope the news gets better after the Euros.

Agreed. the players we re being linked with,including carr , and harper from reading, aren t too inspiring. Then again the tabloid sources producing these nuggets of wisdom aren t too inspiring either.

I get the feeling that until we get the all clear on this last bit of legal excrement from Sheffield United, and until we offload one or two players, we re going to be extremely quiet.

which may not be a bad thing. I d rather we only buy 1 excellent player in the whole window than 3 average to slightly above average ones.
