Apparently we got Pienaar for around 3 million.

Can't complain too much for that price, specially when you compare it to 24 million Bent.

Yeah, Everton didn't get shafted at all, it was 3m now or 0 later.

Well on the King's Lynn Town front, we are third in the league with a couple of games in hand so still contending for promotion which would be nice on our first season. Definitely gonna need a few more faces in the team if we are to stay up if/when we get promoted though.

Just read that Ricardo Fuller is on his way to Sunderland.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/footbal ... 369178.stm

If I was a Sunderland I really wouldn't be impressed by this. With the ampunt of money they got for Bent, they should surely be able to find a better replacement.

Fuller is an underrated player, he's very very talented and for 3 million they'll still have tonnes left over!

Gary Glitter has purchased a Villa season ticket ...
He's heard the strikeforce are Young, Bent and maybe Keane.

Thank you, I'm here all week.
