One time too much Eidur

I know that Icelanders are very angry at the Capitalits - two of the most important was BG and his son – who fooled the whole population in Iceland into it's mess and the way many went bankrupt. But has not Eidur Gudjohnsen (maybe angry at BG still?) fooled us one time too much as well? We've tried to buy him like twelve times now. Many times have been quite close. It's seemed.

This time (if reports are correct, who knows?) he has done a medical and came to Upton Park to do buisiness. Everyone thought this was sorted. Then Harry (who else) called in the dying minutes/late night, and all of a sudden Eidur seems to have changed his mind. Again.

I do not expect footballers of today to wear a badge with pride and back that special team of theirs. That was old times. They play were they see the best opportunities for themselves. At least many of them. Therefore it may not be so important, how this affair ends. It may be more of importance that Eidur - by just negotiating with Harry after his medical here - not seems to be a man of his words, not a man to trust and who is just there for the money. I am not so certain he would do our team any good. At all. He hardly seems to be the saviour with a big heart. (and he is no goalscorer! by the way) Can he prove me wrong??


Another thing is; he would probably be a bench warmer at The lane. But that's another story....

Do I look embittered? Nah, I just wait for a more bold move from g&s!

So the mismanagement at West Ham continues. Who do we point the finger at this time ? Scott Duxbury ?

Why on earth would any club give a prospective transfer target a medical without first signing a contract conditional upon passing the medical ?

This is all a smoke screen for the signing of all your dreams

it looks like Harrys got him, and i dont think he ever wanted to come anyway. Just wondering why when the club go to buy a player everyone knows about it. Should it not be if it hits the press before the deal is done the deal is of.

:-D

btw I'm glad we agree on some aspects of our players and I'd be very interested to see a post from you on Zolas gameplan. What it is, if we have the players for it and if he is the one for next season.

You'll get it... first day of spring. Zola will do it!
And I'm in a way happy that Harry got him. Another reason the dislike them. And I doubt Eidur the sellout ever would have done enough compared to his wages....

Can we please have Victor Moses now? ANd a verification on Benni?
