It had to happen number one

Michael Carrick to ManUre.

No matter the noises Spurs chairman Daniel Levy & manager Martin Jol made about how much they wanted Michael Carrick to stay at the Lane as soon as the player turned down the offers Spurs were making, to improve his contract, he was off to ManUre.

But with two years left on his current Spurs deal only when the price was right, which up to £18.6m seems is right for them, well it’s near £16m more than they paid for him but West Ham will have a sell on clause cut to take.

Well thanks for the last couple of years Michael, now bog off you red Manc scum glory hunter, time to get the likes of new boy Zokora along with last season signing Ghaly into the first team to replace him.

Who said football fans had to be rational and not fickle…

  1. Everyone benefits out of this, and for all that he was a pleasure to watch last season, if missing him means we speed up our attacking play a little – and don’t seize up everytime an opponent puts two men on our admittedly-creative defensive midfielder, as eventually even the likes of Sunderland cottoned on to doing last season – then fine, just fine…

    Great price, too. Sadly all our targets immediately doubled in ‘value’ after that Stock Exchange statement…

  2. Everybody does seem amazed that they paid that much and the report that West Ham didn’t have a sell on clause put into the deal would make it that bit better.

    Just need some fullbacks now.
