Spurs midfield:
- Aaron Lennon
- Luka Modric
- Rafael Van Der Vaart
- Gareth Bale

And, they're desperate for the services of Ashley Young and Scott Parker?? Why??

Their midfield is without a doubt the best midfield in the premier league. . why would they want to sign more midfielders?

They need a new goal keeper and a top quality striker in my opinion.

Paul Scholes set to sign a 1 year contract extension at United. United will bid £25m for Yoann Gourcuff who recently moved from Bordeaux to Lyon. If United can't get Gourcuff for that price then they will go for Lassana Diarra of Real Madrid and you will see a cheeky attempt to steal Ashley Young from under the scousers nose.

Jimmy Bullard is reported to be in talks with three Clubs over his future and been offered a 3 year deal at Norwich he is going to make his decision next week


From a Norwich fans point of view the only reason i would want him at Carrow Road is because it would piss off Ipswich. Yes hes a decent player, but hes past his best (its easy to look good in Ipswich's team at the moment with the crp they have playing for them) and his injury record and wages are far too high. A 1 year rolling contract with clauses for reduced wages if out for long periods would be the only conditions id sign him on. Plus not Lamberts type of player, he goes for young, hungry players looking to prove themselves, not injury ravaged old pros coming to the end of their careers.

Still would be nice to piss of Ipswich 4 times in season (2 derby wins, promotion and stealing their best player!)

Why are people saying that Newcastle will sign Lukula for 18million when man u, chelsea, mardid, barca and both milan clubs are after him? {Ed002's Note - Anderlecht have put a 30M euro price tag on the player. He is clearly a talent but very raw and possibly not suited to the EPL. A number of clubs will simply not risk the money on that basis.}
