Alejandro Faurlin: On his way to Italy

Alejandro Faurlin: On his way to Italy

Palermo made a bid for Faurlin earlier in the window, but that was rejected by QPR.

They have now returned and this time have come to an agreement with the Hoops and are now taking him on loan until the end of the season.

Harry Redknapp had insisted he wanted the 26-year-old to stay with the club, but with other players due to arrive before Thursday's deadline - he has sanctioned his departure.

Faurlin, who is anxious to secure regular first-team football, is set to become the third Argentine to leave England for Palermo following on from Mauro Boselli and Mauro Formica - who completed respective moves from Wigan and Blackburn earlier in the month.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
