West Ham Opt For John Barnes
After seeing him in the "Playing For England" video, David Sullivan has launched a surprise move to sign former Watford and Liverpool great, John Barnes.
A spokesman for the club said: "David has always been a huge fan of John Barnes and after seeing him in the video was struck by how fit the former England player looks. True he has put on some weight, perhaps because he's eaten too many Mars Bars, but David reckons he is probably lighter than McCarthy and latest target Yakubu."
Barnes could yet arrive in a player manager capacity if Avram Grant decides not to take the job. Thiery Henry may also join, offering the exciting prospect of a heavy weight front five of McCarthy, Yakubu, Henry, Barnes and Boa-Morte. Fans will be reworking a Beatles classic, "He aint heavy, he's my striker!"
