That was my first thought when I discovered that Argentinian wunderkind Carlos Tevez, along with international team-mate Javier Mascherano, had joined West Ham United on permanent deals.


Of course, it's obvious it has something to do with an agency, who apparently have some connections or something with WHU, I don't know the exact details, but still.... WTF.

(More on the Tevez-Mascherano-WH transfer story: How West Ham pulled off a coup)

Meanwhile, long-running soap-operas finally came to an end on Merdeka day. Reyes leaves for Real with Julio Baptista arriving in London. One Cole comes goes to Chelski in exchange for Gallas and 5 million quid, the other Cole goes to Portsmouth.

Speaking of defenders, Liverpool say goodbye, after barely saying hello, to Jan Kromkamp. Chelsea say goodbye to Huth (Who let the goals in? Huth! Huth Huth!), who joins Boro along with Real's sicknote Jonny Woodgate. Fabio Capello's certainly doing some smart deals so far...

Steed Malbranque joins Spurs. Another swashbuckling player in a team of swashbucklers. Hasn't Martin Jol heard of defenders?

Arsenal loses a legendary player to Villareal, after selling rock-solid defender Pascal Cygan for 2 million. Stop sniggering....

And, lastly, but not leastly, Da USA's DaMarcus Beasly joins Da Man City on Da loan.
When asked about this, DaMarcus replied...
