Mr Loven lover

Confirmation is emerging from the club that Peter Lovenkrands has signed a contract to join the club for the rest of the season.

Undoubtedly a talented player at one stage in his career, the fact that he's available at all suggests that he might not currently be performing to his previous heights. However, he's an extra body, and if he can help us pick up a few points then any contribution will be welcomed.

What I have found frustrating is why, when the club have been linked with a whole host of foreign players whose clubs seem keen to charge £10m plus for them, are we standing by whilst teams like Hull and Villa sign proven Premier League players for less than £5m?

Whilst Heskey might not be top of too many wish lists, he's got to be a better bet than Xisco. Similarly, whilst Jimmy Bullard is now closing in on his 31st birthday, the fact that we've sat idly by whilst he's been allowed to go to Hull is immensely frustrating.

Still, at least it's now 1-0 to us on the transfer front!
