Firstly, thank Lord Aaron Mokoena has gone to Portsmouth! This was the best news I had heard in weeks. He is the most useless uninspiring player I have ever had the misfortune to watch. Sure he can tackle but what else did he ever do.
Then we learnt that Andre Ooijer was leaving. This isn’t that bad as he never really showed himself to be a good Premier League player. He frequently made mistakes and his positional sense was appalling. He couldn’t keep up with any mildly fast player either. We have got an extremely good replacement in Gael Givet so that departure has not concerned me in the slightest.
Now onto the rumours:
I hope Santa Cruz leaves. He has been an enormous let down this season due to his injury problems and unwillingness to play. He obviously isn’t happy so he may as well go while we can still get up to £15 million for him.
Matt Derbyshire looks like he is off to Olympiakos but I think that Big Sam should reconsider on letting him go as he has shown that he is good enough for the Premier League and the future. He he goes it only leaves us with two strikers which is quite worrying.
We may be loaning Franco di Santo which doesn’t fill me with great enthusiasm as he hasn’t played enough in the Premier League and it is just too big off a risk. We need somebody who is a proven goal scorer to keep us safe in the Premier League next season.
