Isaac Cuenca: Wanted man

According to reports in Holland, the Ajax director of football had travelled to Barcelona to discuss the possibility of loaning players next season.

There is thought to be a strong relationship between Ajax and Barcelona and, in January of this year, the Catalan club agreed to loan winger Isaac Cuenca to the Dutch side.

For Overmars though, the deal to extend Cuenca's time at Ajax is proving problematic and he told De Telegraaf: "Currently the wage is a problem."

The former Arsenal winger also claimed that the loan fee for the 22-year old would have to be lowered and that any possible deal would have to be finalised within two weeks.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
