The hair and now. A hirsute pursuit comes to a end.

The rumour is that Fulham players and personnel still get discounted hair products at Harrods, which is why Dimitar Berbatov spurned Juventus, Fiorentina, and Spurs to land up at Craven Cottage. With improved hair gel, Berbatov will delight the Cottagers with slick moves and celebrate his goals by throwing bottles of Lazartigue into the crowd.

Van Persie …….. he signs when he wants?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

I am quite surprised to still find Arsenal supporters who actually believe that van Persie was serious when he wrote that he was not going to renew his contract because he wanted to go to a club where he would win trophies.

Although, I am not 100% convinced that he personally wrote or even endorsed the piece that everyone refers to on the web site that bares his name; I do think on balance that we have to believe it because, quite simply, he has never denied it.

By Alan Duffy

Arsenal's wantaway captain Robin Van Persie questioned the Gunners' ambition recently. However, with Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and now Santi Cazorla all but signed, with more to come, his argument is looking increasingly misguided.

West Ham to sign Juve & Italy defender - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Angelo Ogbonna, the Juventus & Italian international defender is in London undergoing a medical with West Ham as Slaven Bilic looks to increase his defensive options before the start of the new season.

Of course this could just be an attempt from David Sullivan to save face after embarrassingly publishing a photo of Ogbonna on Twitter when announcing the arrival of Pedro Obiang whilst another target, Aymen Abdennour, looks as though he's on his way to Atleti.

Now, I haven't blogged much this summer, partly because I needed a break and partly because the incessant rumour gets my giddy goat, but I did write about Walcott back in July and it pretty much all still stands.
