JJ to join Canaries

Norwich are set to sign JJ on loan from Charlton for the rest of the season. Nigel Worthington is searching for forward to replace the departed Dean Ashton and has tried to land Robert Earnshaw from West Brom and Cardiff's Cameron Jerome. He evidently decided he didn't want Kevin Lisbie back.

'Johansson is a player that we have monitored for some time,' the Cabaries supremo stated. he said. He added: 'There is no point in bringing players in to go sideways. We need to bring players in who will help us go forwards.' If he thinks JJ can do that, well and good. The flying Finn has never really given a display of the Northern Lights since his first season at The Valley.

There are also reports that Francis Jeffers may be off to Blackburn Rovers which would reduce the wage bill at The Valley but dent takings at The Venue. Blues are also said to be reviving their interest in Jason Euell, but there have been so many stories about this transfer that I no longer know what to believe. The illness of Karen Brady may have been a complicating factor.

So that would just leave Kevin Lisbie on the shelf which is not so suprising. The Currant Bun has claimed that Spurs are after Danny Murphy. I was intially sceptical, but reports to that effect are now coming in from more credible sources. Apparently we would get Spurs defender Anthony Gardner, a Curbs favourite, in part exchange.

The last defender we brought in from Spurs exceeded expectations after a lukewarm start. My feelings about Murphy are somewhat mixed. He was a playmaker, but he always expected the ball to be fed to him and other teams sussed that out. There were also rumours that he was giving it large on the training ground on the lines of 'This is how we did it at Liverpool.' With Joanna Taylor back writing in The Times yesterday, family problems seem to be over.

Anyway, it would give us an incentive to win at the Lane.
