Deja vu?

Deadline day, and the scrabble for new signings is reaching fever pitch across the premiership. Following last night's loan signing of Giuseppe Rossi, our only involvement today appears to be the possible sale of James Milner to Aston Villa.

Whilst still behind Solano in the St James' pecking order, I can't help but feel that if he stays at the club, Milner could soon leapfrog everyone's favourite Peruvian trumpet playing love-rat and secure a place on our right wing. Quite why we would be willing to countenance the sale of Milner is uncertain.

Perhaps the fact that Duff can play on the right (thereby allowing N'Zogbia to play down the left) is enough to convince Roeder than Milner is now surplus to requirements.

However, I'd like to believe that given our thin squad, the truth is that we need the money to finance a transfer later today.

We wouldn't sell a player without a back up plan, would we?
