    This has got to up there with his plan to move to Hollywood a few years ago. He trained with Notts Conty this morning, Notts County of League Two:

    Given the players liking for a pound note and his desire to swerve London, perhaps the final sentence tells the story.

    But surely he could still play for a few teams at Prem level, if not the Championship?

    Just seems a bit of an odd one.

    Route into something in a coaching capacity?

    Nah, just the moolah.

    kained&able Here for the football.

    sven and oppitunity to get into coaching would be my guess.

    Im sure he could have got a championship or prem club so really dont think its about money. Apparently he has family in nottingham as well and spent a lot of his summer there.

    Might have something to do with it.

    It's a 6 year deal, with coaching promises isn't it?

    Its actually a six year deal with a promise of a coachload of money.

    Where all the best teams play. Full internationals are meaningless compared to a wet Tuesday night testing your mettle against the greatest at Fortress Gresty.

    I suppose if it's a choice between Hollywood and a 6-year contract at Notts County . . .
  14. London_Calling

    Deal signed. 5 year contract - for a 34-year old.

    All about the money still, and staying away from London.

    that's about 3000 they need to add to the gate each game (very rough estimate) - a relative marquee signing could do that for them

    Sol Campbell is a good guy. Done a lot of work with homeless and mental health IIRC. And stands up to racism and homophobia ...

    .. and scored two perfectly good goals for England when it mattered only to see them ruled out! Good luck to him.

    Maybe Hamann will sign for them now. But he was saying no last week.

    The one Sven really wants though is Beckham. Poor old Sven probably still thinks he's the key to England's success. :rolleyes:
