Sheffield United signs Defender; Lennon sticks with Spurs

Since there are so many Blades fans here in the U.S. frothing at the bit for some news about their club, I am happy to report that the team has signed defender Matthew Kilgallon from Leeds for ₤1.75 million pounds. I hope all seven of you are as happy as I am about this.

In all seriousness, this sounds like pretty good news. I don’t know much about Kilgallon, but he has the reputation of being a smart defender with potential to grow. (He’s only 23.) In recent weeks it has seemed as if the Blades have needed the most help on defense, which overtook the early-season problem of goal scoring as the number one concern among the faithful at Bramall Lane. Good for them.

Also of note is that it has been reported that Aaron Lennon has signed a long-term deal with Spurs. Good for both the player and the club. Lennon was impressive at the World Cup and Spurs needs more marquee players like him to keep the London Derbies interesting.
