What is going on?

According to, we're now trying to stop the transfer of James Milner to Villa, because Boro aren't willing to sell Mark Viduka.

Assuming Jimmy is still happy to return to a club who appear not to want him, this strikes me as the biggest let off ever. Have we seriously considered selling one of the most promising youngsters in the country for a slightly chunky Aussie who is most definitely the wrong side of thirty?

Perhaps more promisingly is the news that Robert Huth hasn't yet completed his transfer to Boro because Peter Kenyon is busy (presumably with the transfer of Ashley Cole) - in which case, there's still seven hours to rummage down the back of the St James' Park sofa for enough spare change to sign Wayne Bridge.

Deadline day rumours. Don't you just love them?
