The world of Premiership transfer gossip is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Speculation is rife in the likes of the Mirror, Daily Mail, Times, Sun andâ€¦ errâ€¦ Tribal Football all do their best to predict and/or completely make up the future.
Hereâ€™s our opinion on the Premiership transfer rumours weâ€™ve read in the papers and around the netâ€¦ and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.
CaughtOffside Says: Michael seems like a relatively loyal, grounded bloke who just wants to be loved and paid a shedload. So we agree, Mickey’s picked up a bit of silverware already from Liverpool and we fancy him to end up trying to become a Toon legend with the years he has left.
CaughtOffside Says: At just 14, he’s probably more Arsene Wenger’s type (easy now), but Suarez is meant to be the dogs’ against other kids without pubes. Although the fact that things are getting so competitive that kids who are only just starting to develop physically are having their entire futures decided for them is a little unnerving.
CaughtOffside Says: Defending isn’t really the main problem, but apparently Wenger knows…so… what’re you gonna do?
CaughtOffside Says: Plenty of “Nicolas Bender” jokes coming his way, then. But he’s done a fantastic job for Birmingham and, as mentioned above, any player who might be that goal-getter for Arsenal would be welcome.
CaughtOffside Says: Surely Arsenal should let Muamba and Abou Diaby compete a bit to see who won’t be the next Patrick Vieira? Jokes aside, both players have shown good promise to at least add that bit of bite to Arsenal’s midfield that 5’8 playmakers just struggle with. Give him a chance, we say.
CaughtOffside Says: No chance.
CaughtOffside Says: Didn’t realise that Carew was also Director of Finances and Scouting at Villa Park, not that anyone didn’t know there was more US currency on the way. Sidwell is O’Neill’s kind of player, and of course everyone will harp on about how he’s the right man to get some discipline into Craig Bellamy. Good moves, both of em.
