Transfer window : six hours to go

Not much news since the last update.

There's been nothing about Roque Santa Cruz.

Newcastle have bid for Michael Johnson, according to Sky Sports News. I know Johnson's been rather problematic this year, but I don't see the rationale behind selling: we don't need the money and we're taking a real gamble on his not fulfilling his potential. How sickening would it be if he got good at Newcastle and then went to Liverpool or Arsenal??

I can't believe City can conduct anything in secret these days, least of all today, so the chances of a surprise signing are very slim, unless you count the faint possibility of Arshavin getting his pilot to head north.

He's so desperate to get out of Zenit that he flew to the UK before a fee was agreed, so he'd probably take a stint at City.

The real hurdle, however, is that Arsene is a canny old man and if the player can't be his, he won't leave much of a gap for City to take advantage of.
