Latest Transfer Rumours: Robben, Nugent, Johnson, Kightly, San Jose, Samuel and Sheringham

The world of Premiership transfer rumours is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Here’s our opinion on some of that more interesting nonsense… and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.


CaughtOffside Says: Tottenham’s bid is undone by a club with an even stronger Dutch connection. Oh, and they’re a lot better.


CaughtOffside Says: Teddy is the world’s luckiest man. Danielle Lloyd on his arm and somehow people continue to pay him a professional footballer’s wage at age 72.


CaughtOffside Says: James Beattie was a good start, Andy Johnson was even better, why Kenny Miller?


CaughtOffside Says: Oh. [Ed: Andy just denied this, but whatever.]


CaughtOffside Says: Rafa Benitez has a dream, that one day one of the legions of random young players he signs will turn out to be pretty good. We can’t say we’ve seen a lot of Mikel. We also can’t say that we’ve seen any of him. Or that we can even find him on FM2007.


CaughtOffside Says: Seems to be one club out of place there, but Kightly is meant to be quite the wing wizard. Hopefully he’ll get his big move soon so we can start seeing “Kightly Taken Lightly” or “Kightly Feeling Sprightly”.


CaughtOffside Says: In 10 years time, everyone will remember what they were doing when they read those words.


CaughtOffside Says: It’s hard to see whether Nugent is more style over substance, he’s scoring goals, really good goals, but so is Darren Huckerby. But promising English strikers are always exciting, and we think Everton might find money is more important than Gary Lineker bedsheets when Nugent decides his destination.


CaughtOffside Says: He’s 25!? Says a lot about how little Samuel has developed that he was still a ‘promising youth’ in our minds.
