Nigel Hokey-Cokey Wanted By The Three B's

Nigel Hokey-Cokey Wanted By The Three B's

Not been much in the way of transfer gossip recently, only snippet I've seen this week is today in the Daily Star.

They claim that Nigel Hokey-Cokey is in demand and that the 3 b's will fight it out for a £5million winter transfer window move.

3 b's being Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and Blues.

The report says that despite burying the hatchet with Martin O'Neill (it doesn't state where the hatchet has been buried by the way) the Villa midfielder will still look to move to gain regular first team football.

The report also says that MON might cash in on the 25-year-old as he could leave on a free the season after when his contract expires.

Must admit I'd not be surprised to see him move but I'd think he'll be looking to move South as from what I can gather, he misses the bright lights of London too much, so that would rule out Bolton and Blackburn surely?!

Be interesting to see who starts next Saturday against Burnley. After being part of the 5-1 win over Bolton, surely NRC can't be dropped straight back out of the team to fit in club captain Stiliyan Petrov?

A previous poll asked that very question, most seemed to want to keep Hokey-Cokey in the team:

Drop Sidwell and replace with Petrov 62%
Make Petrov wait for his chance 28%
Drop NRC and replace with Petrov 7%
Unsure 3%

Forum thread: So what does MON do with NRC when Petrov returns?

Drop Petrov for Reo-Coker & put Craig Gardner (or Delph @ a push) alongside him if MO'N insists on a 4-4-2. Otherwise a 4-5-1 with Gardner & Delph. That way, we could have a very combative, full English midfield with a good few amount of goals in them.

With all due respect it came from the Daily Star with absolutely zero quotes or sources. Lazy journalism from the gutter press during an international week. Some hack is sitting at his desk saying to himself "hmmm what's an easy rumor I can create....? I know, Reo-Coker had a bust up with MON a few weeks back...."

Quite news day gmvillan, gets the debate going if nothing else. There will be much much more as we move towards December and the ever closening (is that even a word) transfer window. Brace yourselves! Good for business though!

Sooner the useless twonk leaves the better, he is holding Delph and some other talented youngsters back( that goes for Petrov and Sidwell too). At 25 he is hardly going to develop into Frank Lampard is he! laugh all you want but that is the standard of midfield player we need to meet our goal of CL , top 4 call it what you will.
