News that Matthew Etherington has signed for Stoke for £2m and that Lee Bowyer and Calum Davenport are likely signings for Birmingham and Bolton respectively are encouraging signs that Gianfranco Zola's promises may be coming to fruition.
The scandal rags still insist that Scott Parker is being offered parts of Persia and a harem of long limbed lovelies to quit and join Manchester City but West Ham - at the moment - seem to be holding good on their promise that no-one barring resource draining fringe players will be sold.
I can think of a couple of other players whose sole responsibility seems to be keeping the bench warm with their expensive bums who I wouldn't mind seeing the back of for a few mill but, a week into the transfer window, things are encouraging.
It won't last though, will it?
