Playing catch up
Thankfully I was on a plane for most of July 1st so was unable to waste my day logging into websites, tuning into radio stations, flicking through Sky or texting everyone I know for the slightest ounce of news. What a typical anti-climax eh?
So what has happened in the last few days or so? Kezman signed for Chelsea, like he's gonna get a game there? As expected Brian Hughes signs for us on a Bosman. Rommedahl puts pen to paper. By the way last week I was talking drunkenly to a Danish bloke (equally as drunk but seemed to know his footie) and he was raving about Stephan Anderson & said that Rommedahl was like sh1t of a shovel (translated from Danish for our South London readers).
Transfer rumours abound including James Beattie (mentioned here 3 weeks ago!), Marc Overmars, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (I don't think so), Thomas Gravesen, Patrick Kluivert (earns about a million pound a week!), Tim Cahill with JJ to the Spanners, Scott Parker on loan, Jeremie Aliadiere from Arsenal on a season long loan - I may have made that up, but I like the sound of that one.
The new fixtures came out. Palace at home last game of the season. Shame it wasn't in February then we could have put the tossers down. Sky have obviously made a dreadful mistake and got us confused with someone else and have us down for 7 live games before Christmas - expect an announcement from Sky Sports soon.
The squad are back in pre-season training. Mark Fish slagged off by South African media after a woeful display against Ghana in a WC Qualifier decides to quit International football (again).
Greece won Euro 2004. Christ, whatever next? Millwall in the Cup Final? Don't make me laugh.
