Oh yes, forgot that one, us and Spurs, Arsenal, West Ham, Wigan, who else? Think the report said 8 Prem teams had enquired, thing is he said he wants to stay at Madrid and can run his contract down and leave in the summer as a free agent!

Thank god the transfer window has arrived! Saying that, we now have a month of people posting comments like "I've just seen SWP arrive at Villa Park" or "my mates dad's brother's neighbour has contacts within Villa and we are on the verge of sigining ...." It's going to be fun and games, that's for sure!!
