£12m swoop for Upson

The talk both before and after yesterday’s game was of a proposed move by Harry for Matthew Upson during the transfer window.

Redknapp is becoming increasingly frustrated with only having Ledley available for one game in two or three and doesn’t rate Dawson as an adequate understudy.

I’m not sure what the deal is with West Ham at the moment but it would appear they are happy to sell their stars if the price is right. £12m is a lot of money for a player that has had more than his fair share of injury problems but his quality is undeniable. He always looks in command of the back line and his performances for England have been outstanding.

The problem for Harry would be keeping the three of them happy when they are all fit. Woodgate seem to have got past his long term injury problems now and when Ledley can play, there is still nobody better. The other issue is if they were all to go into injury mode at the same time, we would be in serious trouble.

I think our first priority should be a decent ball winner in midfield, the same player we have been missing for years but if Matty Upson did arrive in January, I’d be more than happy.

  1. Interesting, he’s a player I’d love to see join us although I’d imagine we are not the only club looking at him.

  2. Fuck me if you lot sign Upson then thats another Arsenal reject on your books!!!

    Also you would have the most injury prone back line in Premiership history!

    Actually, sign him! It makes sense!
