Sorry, had to be first with the headline. After Dem Bones Ba came and went in no time, reports suggest that we have added to the spine of the team for next season by signing goal machine Wilfried Bony from Vitesse Arnhem.
West Ham fans will be delighted if the reports prove to be true, but there is a huge difference between scoring goals in the Dutch league and the Premier League. Claims that he is the new Drogba are all very well, but until we see Premier League flesh on the bare bones of Eredivisie promise, we shouldn't get too carried away.
Where does this leave Carroll exactly? Looking for a new club probably!
