It was all going on with Berba, Arshavin and Corluka a few days ago but nothing has progressed. It does still look like they are all a matter of days away from being sorted, especially Berbatov, but Ramos doesn’t seem too concerned by our current situation.
“It is nothing to panic about,” said head coach Ramos.
“We have performed very well in recent friendlies, they have been great attacking performances so it is not something that concerns me.
“We are aware there are only two weeks to go before the end of the window, that is something we are working on constantly anyway.
“We work without rest to look for players and we’ve always known the deadline day is the August 31.
“We are working calming, in the background, on one or two things. We prefer to work with as much discretion as we can.”
If the boss is happy, I’m happy!
A bit of good news is Anthony Gardener making his move to Hull permanent. I had visions of him getting injured and being shipped back to the Lane. He did a job for us and even broke into the England squad at one point so I hope he does well at Hull.
A worrying stat I came across this morning is that we have only won one of our last seven opening fixtures! On a positive note we are unbeaten in six Premier League matches against them.
Over on EBA we have a Premier Fantasy League every year, be nice to get a few more Yids involved.
