Sir Alex Ferguson is becoming less and less optimistic about adding another name to his squad before the transfer window closes on Monday. Why, one must ask.

‘At the last press conference I said I wasn`t optimistic. I`m less optimistic today, so we`ll carry on.

‘I`ve no idea what`s going on really, it`s very hard to get communication with some people in life. We just have to get on with it.’


Is it possible that we can’t sign a player who a) definitely wants to join b) whose manager wants him out and quickly? Or is it just Fergie playing games, not to anger Levy and co.?

The Daily Express reckons today is D-Day in the whole boring transfer saga – I’d really like to believe them but as all the other horrible stories this saga also had many supposed D-Days, none of them bringing anything…
