Hmmmm. Remember when we were crying out for a replacement for Lucash Neill? Too slow, too clumsy, too prone to tugging on opponents inside the penalty box, too close to his sell by date? Remember those halcyon days when we thought we had the ability to pick and choose who would wear the right back shirt? Now, we are hanging on in hope, desperate for the Aussie cash register to pen a new deal, realising that if he doesn't, we don't have the funds to buy a replacement. Neill, Spector or Faubert? The choice isn't the greatest but I would certainly prefer Skippy over the other two. Mind you, that's the good news - that Neill MAY be prepared to rejoin us. And the bad news?
Well, according to one source, teenage Charlton sensation Jonjo Shelvey would prefer to join us rather than Chelsea. Bad news? Well yes, because we can't afford the £3.25m that Charlton want for him. Interesting. We received £14m for Bellamy and only paid £5m up front for Savio but we cannot afford the £4m that Barcelona want for Eider or the £3m Charlton want for Jonjo. Mind you, I remember reading this story back in May so...yep, the good news is that the story is on TribalFootball which is why it is well past its sell by date! Just like Quashi and Davenport!
