Duff man

Reports doing the rounds and now being carried on (which is normally a good indication of story having substance) suggest we're about to clinch the signing of Damien Duff for £10 million from Chelsea. On the positive side, Duff is an excellent creative player, who is quick and also appears to have a good temperament.

However, his injury record isn't the best, and he's not a striker. For the money we're reportedly spending on Duff, I can only hope that we've got more cash in the bank to buy the striker(s) we need.

It also makes Roeder's recent comments about only signing players who spend more time on the pitch than in the treatment room sound slightly hollow...
