Steinbeck's maxim: “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”.

The Star saying it's all done and dusted. It is the Star like, so maybe we need confirmation from Twitter. ;)

Think he's a good signing personally. If we can keep him fit, he's going to be very useful. Maybe not on the same scale, but I think something like getting Kanchelskis from United was a similar purchase.  I could be wrong, but I think he's going to be loved by the fans. If Allardyce can get anywhere near the upturn in form that he got with Jermaine Defoe, we're going to do alright. :)

A 3.5-year deal seems pretty short for a 20 million plus player. Maybe there's a year option at the end of it. It looks all done and dusted then! I think he's a top signing. :)
