Moves in English Footer

Ahmed Mido - To Spurs from AS Roma - Not sure why Spurs need him with Berbatov, Defoe and Keane on board - but the Londoners were clearly impressed with the Egyptian's markmanship last season. Attitude is still iffy.

Jan Krompkamp - Liverpool to PSV Eindoven - A financial move for a player who has not really impressed but the Reds are a bit thin at RB now.

Andy Cole - Man City to Portsmouth - A worthwhile pickup for Pompey. This is Cole's fifth EPL club after Newcastle, Man U, Blackburn and Man City.

Pascal Chimbonda - Wigan to Spurs - Excactly what the doctor ordered.

Ashley Cole - Arsenal to Chelsea - was inevitable. I pity Wayne Bridge right now.

William Gallas - Chelsea to Arsenal - Should bolster thin Gunners defence. Only regular Englishman at Emirates right now looks to be Theo Walcott. I predicted this one.

Robert Huth - Chelsea to Boro - Everyone is a winner here especially Huth - regular playing time.

Pascal Cygan - Arsenal to Villareal - The Frenchman was just not EPL material.

Julio Baptista - Real Madrid to Arsenal - Speak to me in 6 months.]

Carlos Tevez - Corinthians to West Ham - Tevez was one of the best players in the World Cup. Excellent acquisition by the Hammers.

Kevin Philips - Aston Villa to WEst Brom - I picked Philips in a Footer Pool so this doesn't make me happy.

Jean-Alain Boumsong - Newcastle to Juve - JAB will probably find Serie B more to his liking then fast pace EPL.

Nicholas Anelka - Fenerbache to Bolton - This is Anelka's 4th Premiwer League Club. My prediction is that he will be great for a year than have a massive fallout with Allardyce.

Andre Ooijer - PSV to Rovers - Dutchman will help bring stability to Rover's defence.

Stilian Petrov - Celtic to Aston Villa - Its about time the Bulgarian showed his worth in a real league.

Marcus Stewart - Bristol City to Yeovil - Remember when Stewart was one of the top scorers in EPL?

Paul Ince - Free to Swindon - The Guvernor is still playing?

Giuseppe Rossi - Man U to Newcastle on Loan - Right now the Toons will take anybody up front.

Jason Euell - Charlton to Boro - The Jamaican International may add spice to inconsistent Boro attack.

David James - Man City to Pompey - I guess its a step up for Pompey. Goalkeeper problems dogged them all season in 2005/2006.
