Portsmouth vs Tottenham Hotspur : Steed's Goal


Murphy's cross was quality, drew off his man and whilst Steed Malbranque was in more clear space than the inside of Victoria Beckham's head, his pass was thoughtful and pin point.

Ghaly's injury was appalling. Watching MOTD, you could actually see one tooth catapult out of his mouth as Paramot's shoe impacted. Was it malicious? No. Just really bad luck. That won't comfort anyone, but sometimes the truth doesn't. Fair play to the lad for trying to continue.

So now to Cardiff. For which our sick and weary must repair themselves. This won't be as testing as Southend, but we are still in no position to roll out an under strength first eleven in any competition.

Keep it Tottenham.

ADEL MOVE AGREED

The Club is delighted to announce that agreement has been reached with Lens for the loan of French midfielder Adel Taarabt. Adel will register with the Club once we have received his International Transfer Certificate from the French Football Federation.
An attacking midfielder who can also play as a second striker, Adel can additionally play wide on either wing. He has represented France at U-16, U-17 and U-18 level.

The 17 year-old made his first team debut with the French Ligue 1 club earlier this season.

Sporting Director Damien Comolli said: “Adel is recognised as one of the best talents in Europe for his age group and as a club we’re especially pleased that we beat several leading Premiership clubs to his signature.

“He will be a healthy addition to the squad and is a continuation of our policy of attracting the best young talent as we constantly seek to improve the quality of the team both now and for the future.”

Does all that mean we have him technically on loan until his papers come through, then he's a fully paid up Spur? Or he's on loan until we agree to buy?

What does 'register' mean in this context.

Answers on a postcard..........

Probaby another 'Roma-esque' deal as with Mido, heavily slanted in Lens' favour resulting in him suddenly costing the earth if we decide to keep him.

Initial reports suggest Cheatski and the Immigrants were sniffing around him... so not all doom and gloom.

Let's start a rumour....

Sol Campbell to Chelsea in January, anyone?

Harry - good site! Never really checked it out properly before, but good articles, plenty of pics etc.

Think youre spot on with Taarabt - price set to soar if he does any good! but a step in the right direction anyway (someone with a left foot)

PS - I know chelski need to bolster their defence presently, but an over the hill judas clogger?? wouldnt surprise me if theyre sniffing round dawson/leds. If they are, hopefully they will duly be told to sod off!

aparantley Taarabt will sign for £2.35 million but not until May. Could be because of his birthday? he's only 17 still, and his birthday is May......dunno what the feck I'm on about really, just speculating!
