Peas in a pod

Look at any number of football sites this afternoon and you’re guaranteed to be greeted with two headlines that look a little like: ‘Bellamy on race charges’ and ‘Toon finalise Bowyer deal’ (taken from the Guardian’s website). They’ll get on like a house on fire. I wonder if football’s ‘kick racism out’ campaign will continue to make a mockery of itself and simply ignore this incident. I think we all know the answer to that one.

So David whatsisface has finally signed for Real thingymabob after passing his Live! medical. That’s exciting. His wannabe replacement and Crypt Keeper lookalike Ronaldinho is standing by while PSG bump his fee up to a British transfer record of £31m. No doubt Sir Alex will buckle and cough up as he did over Veron, Ferdinand and Van Nistelrooy. I suppose you have to when you’ve no idea how to spot talent and just sign whoever’s in the latest Nike advert.

In more transfer news, Liverpool are still desperately trying to persuade the press that Harry Kewell wants to sign for them — you’d have to be pretty gullible to fall for that one — and Jaap Stam might be making a return to England just to wind up Mr Ferguson. The truth is that with the exception of David thingy, no one’s gone anywhere and no one’s going anywhere in a hurry.

Expect 15 transfers first thing tomorrow morning.
