Pablo honey

According to today's rumour mill, the next person t be joining the St James Park express will be Pablo Aimar from Real Zaragoza. Aimar is an attacking midfielder, who would hopefully provide us with some creativity in our solid but otherwise unspectacular midfield.

One other rumour doing the rounds is that we've apparently failed in our quest to "bolster" our defence by signing Anton Ferdinand from West Ham. Needless to say, our failure to add the parrot faced idiot's parrot faced brother to our ranks is unlikely to see too many tears running down anyone's face on Tyneside (except possibly with relief).

Seriously, does anyone think Ferdinand jnr would significantly improve our defence?

On the subject of defenders, we've apparently been joined by Sebastien Bassong from our old chums FC Metz on trial, following the French team's recent relegation from Ligue 1. According to wikipedia he's a left footed defender who is better at centre half than full back.

Neither of whom would appear to be the commanding experienced centre half we've needed since Woodgate went to Madrid.
