Well, 'Arry's made if 'official' but at the same time almost ruled out any move for Juan Mata. One of those, yes we want the boy, but so does every other top club in Europe quotes. I wouldn't expect a move any time soon. As soon as one club jumps in and lays a 6 figure weekly sum on the table and the chance of a proper European Tour then that's us blown out the Pacific.
Don't hold your breath on that one.
A fantastic player that would provide top competition for positions all across of midfield but a priority signing? No, well, it shouldn't be.
This has come on the back of an unconvincing victory at Brighton's new AMEX stadium. In regards with Spurs, our performance is hardly worth a report itself. Half the boys still thought they were tanning on the beaches of South Africa and you'd have been mistaken for thinking that they'd had a heavy one in Brighton last night.
Bale looked sharp as he has done this summer and a solid second half from Livermore saw us come out 3-2 on top, but, in truth, Brighton were incredibly unlucky. A win's a win, isn't it? Seeing Vdv hobble off after half hour was a familiar unsightly sight to see.

Hope you boys are having a more inventive Saturday night than me.
