Jeffin' Great

The big news is that ex-evertonian and England U21 international Francis Jeffers has signed for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger (and I) see him as a box predator to take all 400 chances Arsenal could have taken this season with a man in the right place. It does mean that Wiltord, Bergkamp or Kanu will be leaving though (my money's on Kanu, but then again I didn't think Lampard would sign for Chelsea).

Wenger is also very close to signing Dutch international midfielder Giovanni Van Bronkhorst who signalled he wont be signing a new deal at Rangers. With Sol Campbell (probably) arriving as well, things are looking up for the gunners. Unless United sign Juan Sebastian Veron (�25m - from Lazio), in which case we're screwed because he's fantastic.

And finally, for all those scousers that have been banging on about how they are the second (or even best) English club in Europe in the rankings - here are the official UEFA club rankings for 2001;
