Neill Completes Ground Breaking Move
After months of speculation and rumour Blackburn Rovers defender Lucas Neill has finally completed his move away from Ewood Park.
After his displays at the 2006 World Cup Finals with Australia he was linked with the mighty AC Milan so it was always only a matter of time before Neill moved on. As others Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Chelsea and Aston Villa apparently entered the race it seemed that nobody would beat Liverpool as he "always wanted to join them."
Today finally saw a move happen as the Aussie completed a move (thought to be around £1.5 million) to the mighty West Ham United! Signing a two-and-a-half year LUCRATIVE contract with the Premiership strugglers.
No one would have begrudged Neill his "dream move" to Liverpool but come on West Ham (with all due respect to Hammers fans) this is hardly the ground breaking move forward Neill said he wanted is it! Giving up UEFA Cup football with a team pressing on again for a top six place; you can't help but think it was always about the money? How much was agent Peter Harrison whispering in his ear in order to turn his head as much as it was?
Nevertheless Neill's been a willing servant and this can not be taken away but the move as it has panned out has got to leave a sour taste in so many people's mouths? But I'm sure in our own ways we'll wish him well...
