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: Never going to be a goal getter, but Smith would make any non-Big Four side better with his attitude, workrate and teamplay. But despite the links away we really see Smith in a United shirt next year.
CaughtOffside Says: And thus Fulham fans get the words they’ve been waiting to hear.
CaughtOffside Says: Despite many people thinking he was a lazy pile of toss, Mourinho seemed pretty happy with Ballack’s contribution last season. We don’t see Chelsea letting him go if for no other reason than they don’t need to, and strengthening a Champions League rival won’t be high on the list.
CaughtOffside Says: Is there any better fit for a talented but insanely unlucky, injured midfielder than Spurs and West Ham right now?
CaughtOffside Says: David Nugent was the last player to profess an undying love for Everton, and he ended up at Portsmouth because Everton either wouldn’t pay Preston’s asking price or dilly dallied about for too long. We’re not holding our breath on this one…
CaughtOffside Says: We like to think of footballer’s as sport-playing robots sometimes, but it’s nice to hear that having someone beat the living hell out of your mate is a good reason not to play football with them even at a professional level. Although you’d think a real man would sign for Newcastle just to get some back.
CaughtOffside Says: Oops. Although there’s about a 145% chance this will get overturned on appeal, Wenger has been burned before on work permits.
