Movement at last in the transfer market, though with our best player odds-on to be at Manchester City by the end of the week not always in the kind of direction I was hoping for. After the signing of a pacy, injury-prone forward who doesn't score half as many goals as he should (no, not Craig Bellamy - or Michael Owen), we're now reportedly after a right-back from Toulouse, the next Patrick Viera - though if he's that good why hasn't he been linked with anyone else? - and Celtic skipper Stephen McManus, on loan, for £4 million or in a swap deal for Jose Enrique depending on which paper's gossip column you read. "Please let it be so," emailed by Bhoys supporting friend from Paris, "If he wasn't captain, he wouldn't get a game."
Meantime, we're down to fifth from bottom.
