Spector blow to Irons

There was wailing and rending of clothes in the streets of SE7 last night after the news that last season's loan player Jonathan Spector had signed for the Irons from Manchester United for an initial fee of £500,000. Well, not actually. Despite all the talk of Spector's potential, I thought that his performance was not up to Premiership standard last season.

This news could mean that the pressure to get Luke Young to the Boleyn Ground has been reduced, although the Irons are reported to have increased their offer. West Ham, who were reportedly in a lot of financial trouble not so long ago, suddenly seem to have a lot of cash to spare. Surely they didn't make that much out of their FA Cup run? Or are they splashing out in the hope of Uefa cup success? Remember Ipswich.
