Capital One Cup news, and I am less than thrilled with Newcastle away. The League Cup is one of the competitions where away tickets are a bit more plentiful, and we have some great nights in Barnsley, Reading, Blackburn etc. A home draw means paying 40 quid to watch the reserves and fringe players.
Deadline day is upon us, and there is speculation that Nani could be on his way to Zenit St Petersburg. Not having it myself, I still think Nani will have a big part to play this season. Where is Berba? After his alleged medical at Fulham there are now rumours that he has gone back to Spurs. Another saga, albeit a brief one, in the making.
Andy Carroll has gone to West Ham on a season long loan, possibly paving the way for Clint Dempsey to go to Anfield, though other rumours suggest that Fulham and Villa have agreed a fee. Its not looking good for Fulham as they leak players all over the place, though on the plus side theyve signed Kieran Richardson. Jealous of Rafael Van Der Vaart as he's supposedly heading for Hamburg, which is a fantastic place.
Meanwhile, Mancini is supposed to be sealing five deals on deadline day, I suppose that includes Scott Sinclair. Come to think of it, Roberto does look a little like David Dickinson.
