16.25 – Almost too hot to type today. Owen Hargreaves has been linked with Arsenal quite consistently over the last 6-9 months, and Soccernet add fuel to the fire today.
As the World Cup action slows down, the transfer speculation hots up. Football 365‘s round up links us with moves for Lee Bowyer, Hasan Sas and and Edmilson, who was on the verge of signing before but had work permit problems. They also speculate that Keown and Freddie might leave.
I can’t see Freddie going anywhere, but Keown might go if he’s offered a 2 year deal somewhere else. As it looks like TA’s retirement is imminent, we could do with hanging on to Martin, but I have to say I think 1 year is about all he has left in him at the highest level.
Somebody sent me an email today which said this:-
thought you should know that muzzy izzet is signing for west ham.”
Er….great. I suppose if I was a West Ham fan it would be even more great. If I was West Ham fan and I had a West Ham blog, I could be called Hamblogger….
