Zokora signs

Zokora has signed for Spurs this afternoon confirming the story released by "Lennon's Jet Boots" on COYS and on The Shelf last week.

We shall have to wait and see if this affects Carrick.

Zokora almost confirmed

Spurs have confirmed today that they are in advanced talks with Zokora and his club. This is quite unsurprising as it was in the News of the Screws today and the pictures provided by "Lennon's Jet Boots" made it clear what we were up to.

Lets hope the club confirm sooner rather than later as we don't want it being sabotaged late on!

I'm off on school journey with the kids so no updates for the week.

Full fixtures

Here are Spurs full fixtures for the Premier League next season. Due to our UEFA cup involvement lots of our Saturday games will be moved to a Sunday kick off. We start off with a trip to Bolton. This means that I can finally make the trip as Bolton away is usually a damp Wednesday night in November so expect Sky to shift it to a Monday night just to piss me off.

Other highlights include a visit to the new soulless dump "New Highbury" at the beginning of December with the goons returning to us at the back end of April.

Zokora pictures

Here are the pics. Once again thanks must go to COYS and "Lennon's Jet Boots"

Of course it could be a chance meeting.....


Zokora signs?

Looks like Zokora has signed or is about to sign for Spurs for around £8 million. There is a fantastic story over on COYS where some guy called "Lennon's Jet Boots" has pictures of him and Zokora holding a Spurs flag. He also has said that Comolli was there and he will be posting pictures of him and Comolli later tonight.

Now it looks like it is definetly Zokora with the Spurs flag and I think if we can get to see the Comolli pictures it will virtually confirm the transfer. Comolli was quoted as saying "It is a done deal".

COYS members can follow it over there - for non COYS members I'll try and get permission to get the pics up on here.

Fingers crossed,

Further transfer news.

Reputable posters Ben and Noodles on FTL have confirmed what I also heard yesterday that Carrick is going for sure - £15 million with rumors of another player thrown in but no one seems to know who so that part of the deal could be rubbish. £12 million pounds profit on a player that is worth maybe £8 million tops is good business as long as the money is well invested. On that front it appears that Zakora will be tied up soonish.

Carlton cole is no longer coming (shame) because of a dodgy medical. We are still looking at options for the left with a Chelsea man a main target but not sure if it will happen or not.

Once again is the place you need to be for all the latest.

Jol rejects Carrick Bid.

Breaking news is that Jol has confirmed that Manchester United made a £10 million bid for Carrick but it has been rejected. However, news from COYS now suggest that it is not a matter of if but when Carrick signs for Manchester United after turning down a the same contract deal that king sigend a few weeks ago.


Transfer news.

First of all Stephen Kelly is being offloaded to Birmingham. The option to extend his contract by a year was a good move as it means we will recieve a fee for the right back. Good luck to him from everyone at The Shelf.

And as one full back departs another arrives. Benoit Assou-Ekotto has arrived from RC Lens. Rumors that he was a signing in the Toda tradition to boost profits from names on the backs of shirts have been denied by the Spurs brass.

Comolli said:

“He’s regarded as one of the best prospects in French football and is an excellent signing for the Club.

“The player is ambitious and has always wanted to play in English football. He was consistent in his commitment to us in the negotiations we had with Lens despite a lot of interest from other clubs and Lens being reluctant to let him go.”

Sounds good.

Carrick going.

It looks like Carrick is off for something around the £14 million mark, maybe a bit less. The BBC broke the story a while ago that we had turned down a bid of around £10 million but rumors look like we will be accepting United's improved offer. If true we would have made a whopping profit as we only paid £2.75 million for him 2 seasons ago. If the money is invested wisely then this could prove to a be shrewd move. The rumors are coming from a very good source over on FTL and although nothing is done yet don't be surprised if it is and of course don't be surprised if it is all bollocks! Also, football is all about improving the squad. Carrick has done well for Spurs since his arrival but every player has a price. Look at the scum. I was surprised when Anelka went for nearly £20 million quid but with hind sight they were right to do so. The same could well be said about Viera. Obvioulsy Wenger invested the cash well and if we do the same, and the signs are promising with our new faces this transfer window, then the massive profit we could well be making may actually hold the key of making Champions League next season instaed of just missing out this.

Time will tell.

Arsenal at it again.

The worlds filthest club may finally get caught. Dvaid Dein has had conflicts of interest for years and we all know our history at what the scum did at the end of the first world war to get themselves into the top division. Corruption ran throughout Highbury back then and it now appears to be doing so again.

has the full story and it makes fascinating reading. The scum are now claiming that nothing illegal has gone on but for four years they claimed, when asked, that they had no financial relationship between themselves and a small belgium club called Beveren. However it has now been proven that they had with a Belgium magistrate saying that the go between between the scum and Beveren was little more than a puppet of Dein and scum FC. Why lie if there is nothing dodgy going on.

Wenger is also on record stating that the filth have never had a financial arrangement with Beveren. Why is Arsene lying as well? What is going on? Something dodgy has happened and the scum have been caught. The FA will have to investigate and it will have to be independent because otherwise Dein will create some cover up in one of his many roles in the FA. FIFA are now also looking into it. If found guility, and I hope they are, the penalties could be massive and it couldn't happen to a nicer club. What goes around comes around.
