Avram Signed Sealed And Delivered
The work permit has been rubber stamped so Avram is now officially our man. Sound the trumpets and lets hope the walls of Jericho don't come tumbling down!
The summer has started well with the arrival of Hitlersburger. We are being linked with Belhadj (a new Bellend at Upton Park?)and Yakubu too. And so far, nobody has left. Well nobody other than Mido, General Franco and Ilan - and we didn't own any of them anyway.
Ilan's agent is working hard meanwhile, trying to convince the world that there is a queue of clubs looking to sign the Brazilian. I'm very comfortable with the decision to release him personally. Yes his goals per games ratio was impressive but he didn't look like he would sustain it over an extended period to me. Franco looked the better player to me. And he was 34 so, again, his release makes sense. What is reassuring is that S&G released them, rather than sign up two available and cheap options. That suggests they are serious about overseeing improvements on the pitch as well as in their bank balances.
Roll on the second signing. In the meantime, there's the little matter of a World Cup!
