Neill finally signs

West Ham's Lucas Neill about to karate chop a referee We all thought it wouldn't happen, but it did in the end. Lucas Neill has signed a £60,000 a week deal for a fee of about £1,500,000. I don't know how long he's signed for but my guess is probably either 6 months or about 2-3 years with a relegation "eject! eject! eject!" clause. I think he really believes West Ham can stay up and that he'll get games with us. Plus there's that big pile of money. I'm a bit concerned that Curbs is splashing this money around, especially on wages. I don't like big wage bills, but I suppose any price is worth paying to stay up..

We're also getting a striker from Sevilla called Kepa Blanco on loan till the end of the season with an option to buy. He's 23 but I can't tell you any more than that. It's a secret. (actually I don't know anything about him)
