Hello all,

Happy bank holiday Monday to you.

There is not much in the way of news right now but I will give it a go.

We are linked with Ajax youngster Urby Emanuelson who plays at leftback. Which means its probably a load of crap as we have two very good and promising leftbacks in Clichy and Traore.

Gallas said that we have to be prepared for another physical battle with Sparta Prague in the Champions league qualifier.

As we are 2-0 ahead we may get the chance to see Eduardo start as he attempts to settle into English football. Adebayor will probably start again to give him match sharpness as he has missed the start of the season.

Barcelona drew 0-0 last night with Thierry Henry sitting his over inflated ego on the bench. He came on, on 60 minutes for Messi but could not find a way through. Oh well.

Did you see the Manchester United vs Spurs match yesterday? How lucky are Man United? My word. I was kinda hoping that it would be the end of their luck this season. Well at least I can go back to hating Spurs again.

Other transfer gossip is that Real Madrid are trying to sign former Chelsea target Daniel Alves. Oh did you know that they have also signed two wingers in Robben and Drenthe. Do you reckon any of their wide players could be surplus requirements??? Wishful thinking I suppose.
