Last night Vedran Corluka was a Spurs player, today he’s been forced back to Manchester by City boss Mark Hughes. Everything was tied up apart from his work permit and he was meant to be attending the Roma game today.
Things are never perfect where Spurs are concerned but I feel for Man City fans, the club seems an absolute shambles and Mark Hughes must be wondering what he’s doing there. The deal has been negotiated behind his back and it would not surprise me if he were to resign before long.
We have finally offloaded Younes Kaboul to Portsmouth for a reported £6m, good money I thought. This deal has been dragging on for ages I’m glad it’s finally sorted. If we can still get Corluka in we are getting a much better player for just £2m more which is great business.
I didn’t get to the game today but it was a cracking performance by all accounts. It may have only been a friendly but to put five past a team of Roma’s quality in any game is something special. Two goals for Bentley and another two for the on fire Darren Bent, Lennon got the other. I’ve got everything crossed that Bent can carry this form into the season proper.
