Tottenham finalized the signing Fulham’s Steed Malbranque, currently injured for 10 weeks, amongst interest from Bolton and West Ham. Although we imagine West Ham aren’t quite as annoyed as they might have been yesterday. The Frenchman mirrors the signing of Hossam Ghaly, who joined Martin Jol’s side crocked and has yet to feature in a Premiership match. Tottenham are also linked to Harry “My Knees!” Kewell.
While, on the surface, this seems like a comical and fruitless way to conduct transfer business it could just be that Martin Jol and Sporting Director Damien Commolli have figured out what Claudio Ranieri and Jose Mourinho couldn’t – how to keep hundreds of first team players happy.
If you sign the injured or injury prone, they’ll rotate themselves! Genius.
