Ferguson must move heaven and earth to sign Joe Cole...

Anyone who saw the England comedy road-show in Austria on Sunday will have been left in no doubt about the value of Joe Cole. In the first half against Japan, England were rubbish and that's putting it politely, they were clueless truth be told.

We are led to believe up and until the fixture with Japan, Fabio Capello wasn't sure if he was going to include Joe Cole in his final 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup finals. If the speculation is actually true, it raises serious questions about the Italian's judgement, because it was only after the introduction of Joe Cole and a change in formation that England began to look capable of actually playing a half decent brand of football.

It is to be hoped Ferguson was watching, as Joe Cole linked up extremely well with Wayne Rooney. Reports have linked Cole to United over the last few weeks, it is claimed he is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge. However, Cole is no cast-off, he is well capable of making Chelsea regret allowing him to leave, especially on a free transfer.

With little or no cash to spend where the search for proven quality additions to the United squad are concerned, if Ferguson does nothing else this summer, he must surely move heaven and earth to sign Joe Cole.


  1. Agree 100%. The reason he links up well with Rooney is because it is natural talent they both have and play like they would if they were in a park with their mates. We really should have moved heaven and earth to sign him when he was younger, but as Fergie proved with Michael Owen, he never forgets.

  2. Kendall,

    I like the park analogy. How true.

  3. I agree completely with all of this James, he would be a great signing but the guy will have his choice of clubs and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. What amazes me is how he can be linked to us, arsenal, spurs, liverpool, even real madrid - yet chelsea sit around happy to let him walk away from the club.
