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:Wayne, or Waynesy to his friends, has had a bit of a weird Premiership career. If you ask any Spurs fan, they’ll tell you they should never have loaned him out and can’t understand why he’s not at least a backup to Lennon. But if you ask anyone else who he actually has played for, you’ll hear stories of chronic inconsistency and a lack of tracking back. If he’s been loaned out this much with so few wingers in Tottenham’s squad, we can’t see him ever having a place there.
CaughtOffside Says: Gasp! A player over 18 linked with Arsenal. Abidal would recreate the Cole-Clichy situation on the left for the Gunners and surely solve all their ills. Or none of them.
CaughtOffside Says: Tales of seasons with no medals and no top class European football will surely woo Brown. He’d get to play a bit more, after all, and put himself in the shop window for England selection – a bit like Titus Bramble.
CaughtOffside Says: Kewell was inevitably linked to Bolton, and while Sam could probably weave his magic for ailing ‘Arry somehow we can’t see the Aussie agreeing a move to the Reebok. Camara, on the other hand, has proven himself a good Premiership player and would do well either partnering or replacing Nicolas Anelka.
CaughtOffside Says:Lee Hendrie’s claim to fame is still looking too much like Robbie Williams.
CaughtOffside Says: Oh, shame. They were doing so well…
CaughtOffside Says: Someone needs to tell Malouda that you go to Chelsea to earn shedloads of cash, not play for Jose Mourinho. Because if that’s not true then they’re going to be in a bit of trouble if this rumoured row with Abramovich comes to a nasty conclusion in the summer.
