Just 1 day left. I only wish I’d thought to book a day off work. It’s said that none of the huge deals go through in the January window. Such people are fools and should be ignored. You can rest assured that my eyes will be firmly glued to the BBC rolling coverage of the […]

These are their stories: 1. Robbie Keane Preface: Well, right now it seems the thing to do to be annoyed at some manager […]

5 Premier League Players That Might Move This Month

January 4, 2011

So…this was meant to be the third of 3 postings on the start of the transfer window. The first was yesterday on players who won’t be transferred in the window; and since then one of my picks has been given more weight by Owen Coyle putting the prohibitive price-tag of  £20 million or more on […]
