Zokora = Carrick. Yeah, yeah. According to Tottenham's PR department and who else? However, I thought that this was interesting:

Meanwhile Spurs are to consider making a third bid for Wigan defender Pascal Chimbonda.

Their second bid of £3.5million plus winger Andy Reid and midfielder Danny Murphy, was rejected by Latics boss Paul Jewell.

Jewell, who will not let the transfer-listed defender go for less than £6million, said: "Pascal has come back and his agent was in my office when I spoke with Spurs and said we wanted the full £6million for Chimbonda.

"Spurs offered a couple of players. We could not reach a deal and if we do not get the full amount the player stays where he is.

So now Danny Murphy isn't even acceptable as a make-weight in a trade offer? Why isn't he the new Michael Carrick, or at least an option in Spurs' new midfield?
