....Transfer God

The following story might be complete press bollocks, but if its even 10% true, its one of the funniest things I have ever heard about in football:


Reports suggest that Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant has narrowly missed out a sensational move to Real Madrid - by demanding too high a wage from the Spanish giants.

Out-of-favour Pennant's Anfield appearances have been scant this season, and it has been no secret that his future lies away from Merseyside.

The Daily Mail said Pennant was all set for a shock £3.5 million move to the Spanish capital, but saw the deal collapse over the contract details. The 25-year-old former Arsenal and Birmingham winger reportedly wanted £60,000-a-week, while Real were only willing to pay him half that amount.

He now looks set to move on loan to a Premier League club, with Stoke and Wigan most heavily linked.


I dont think I have the words to react to news like this when I read it. What in god's name was he thinking? What has he ever done in his career to earn 60 pounds a week, let alone 60,000k? Besides make Arsenal look like numpties in the press for owning him. Even if he rode the bench in Madrid, that wouldnt be preferrable?

And worse yet, what the hell is Ramos thinking? I know Real have endless amounts of money, but is he trying to corner the market on average premiership wingers? Lennon, Pennant, next he will be after Morgan Gamst Pedersson and Benayoun. We should send him a dossier about Malouda calling him the next Pele. We'd probably get 20 million overnighted from the Spanish capital via Fed Ex.

On a lighter note, another Benitez failure down the drain. Hopefully when he goes to Wigan or Stoke, they lose all seven million, rather than have Real bail them out for another terrible transfer.
