According to reports we've now completed our fourth signing of the summer, with former Smoggy and Chelsea man Geremi joining the club.

Undoubtedly a decent player, Geremi will add depth to the squad, and his additional height will, I suspect, see him installed as our first choice right back next season. With Milner on the wing, and Solano as cover for both positions, the move should nudge Stephen Carr closer to the door. (Although, given the size of his arse, perhaps that should be double doors.)

The signing again appears to represent a decent bit of business, with Allardyce steadily increasing the size of the squad, all the while adding proven quality players.

Obviously, there still needs to be further players coming in, and although the arrivals of Geremi and Rozehnal will bolster the squad, further defensive reinforcements remain a priority (not least a left back) and should any buy out clauses come into play, we'll probably need further striking cover as well.

Happily, Allardyce appears to be a fan of buying players early in the summer, rather than waiting until the end of August and hoping for the best - something which we've contrived to do, with very mixed results, for the last two years.
