'If It's Football, It's Vital'

First up - Derek Boateng

In amongst the flurry of multi million pound deals and big names we were linked with over the weekend a lesser light seems to have come up on the rails to become Big Sam`s first signing as Newcastle boss. Derek Boateng, a Ghanian international currently playing his football in Israel, is set to join the club for a fee skirting around the £1m mark. Interestingly enough he was a former Boro target four years ago, with the Beasts missing out on him due to work permit problems. With this all in hand now we are keen to take the lad to Tyneside.

Boateng has played in both Greece and Sweden and turned out for Ghana along with Essien and Muntari during last year`s World Cup. Speculation abounds in the reports that Dyer and Parker will be the first sacrificial lambs from the current midfield, moves that I can`t feel sorry about. Hopefully most people will have noticed Dyer`s current lack of soundbites of late since being booed against Blackburn and Watford, a sign maybe that he`s given up in trying to palm off his detractors with Journal interviews. Parker on the other hand looks set to be Reo-Coker`s replacement in a claret and blue shirt at Upton Park.

Was always half decent for me on Champ Manager. Then again so was Christian Bassedas.
